bibI pray that each of you come to know God through prayer and reading the Bible. Come to Him with an open heart to learn. Open your eyes to see His truth. Rely on God’s wisdom and He will give you knowledge. His Word will speak to your minds and prick your hearts to follow Him. He knows our life and if we are out of line He will counsel us and bring us to repentance. He does this because He loves us and desires us to be saved. His arms of mercy are stretched out towards us if we might give Him our attention. All He asks is for us is to follow Him and it is up to us if we will obey. Make the ultimate sacrifice for His cause, to turn away from anything that is contrary to Him. Trust in His counsel and He will know how important He really is to us. My life was changed forever when I gave up my non biblical beliefs and left the Mormon Church. It was a leap of faith and I am glad I did it. I am now following the Jesus of the Bible and my life is blessed. I am able to come to know Christ through prayer and His words. God’s word is alive and reading them each day gives me a better understanding of the gospel. I know that God’s Word is only contained in the Bible.
What saddens me is that many people I’ve talked to are closed off to God’s Word. What they’ve learned throughout their life is more important than hearing the gospel of the Bible. Some churches even have doctrines that are found in other books outside the Bible. Because of this their beliefs on Jesus differ than the Bible. Paul warned about this and said that people would teach a different gospel with a different Jesus. He went on to say that people would continue to put up with it. This generation we live in is corrupt. When the simplicity of the Bible is tampered with by adding other texts to it many untrue beliefs are created. This is happening in many different religions. We must get back to the true and living Word of God, through the Bible. If people continue to believe in a different gospel, Jesus will not know them. Only by making the leap of faith and turning away from the errors of their faith can they be reconciled to Christ. There is only one Jesus and His words are in the Bible. Read and pray on His words and you will be blessed. Come unto Christ the Lord and be prepared to sacrifice everything for Him. This is what He desires. I give Him my whole heart and soul. Everything I have is for Him. Jesus I honor and praise.
2 Corinthians 11:3,4 (NKJV)
3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!
