Colloss. 2 :8-10
8. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
10. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
(How do you like that for credentials? Was this ever claimed for Buddha or Mohammed or anyone? Are all "religions" equal?)
7. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
(Your apprentice is below you; your master is above you; your FELLOW is your associate and equal. Father God says here that Jesus is His associate and equal. This crucial distinction is now being rapidly deleted in" modern language" Bibles.
John 8: 58
58. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.
(This is the I AM of Jehovah)
24. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM, ye shall die in your sins.
(The King James adds "he"- as "I am he". But The Greek Tx. Receptus does not have an "he". The mathematical base there is fully intact. The addition of "he" eliminates the mathematical base.)
Some say, this passage is directed most especially to Jehovah’s Witnesses, from two thousand years ago.
To those still searching for answers and peace, may I say, search for the only truth and remedy that exists, for the God that loves you, who made all life and who has made, and will make again, a beautiful world.
Any CONCEIVABLE sacrifice in this life is worthwhile to find the BIBLICAL Christ Jesus and to belong to Him! If you want Him, pray now with me, "DEAREST LORD JESUS, FORGIVE ME MY SINS. I REJECT ALL NON-BIBLICAL RELIGION. PLEASE BE THE RULER OF MY LIFE. HELP ME TO LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY AND TO OBEY YOU WITH ALL MY STRENGTH AND TO READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY, EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE."
Dwell in in the serene peace and love of our Lord and His people and carry His will and His love, as long as possible, unto this perishing world.
