_”Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”~ John 14:6
Scripture has authoritatively affirmed that Jesus Christ is the only Way, the Truth and the Life.
He is the only way to the Father; The only Truth who can be relied upon in all matters of this life and beyond.
By implication, all so-called “other ways” that are being projected and promoted by any person are untrue! And any claim that there are ” *several and many ways or paths to God” is a stark naked lie*.
Indeed, any such claim is anti-Christ because it is countering Jesus’ claim of being the only way to God.
” No one comes to the Father except through Me”.
I wonder what kind of gospel a minister who is reluctant or unable to stand up and declare to the whole world that Jesus is the only way to God is preaching. What truth about Jesus then, are they contending for?
And what salvation message do they preach? Which Savior do they talk about and promote to sinners? Who of the “other ways” to God were born, heralded by angels, lived, died and rose again to do away with the guilt, punishment and condemnation of sins, who atoned for sin, and offers us forgiveness.
And which of the “ways” is seated at the right hand of God, and is coming back again to judge the whole world? Which of them has been given a name that brings all powers, and principalities, rulers etc to their knees at the mention of it (Phil 2: 9-11, Acts 3:16; 4:12)?
And of which of the “other ways” is likened to a lamb that was slain to atone for the sins of mankind?
And who also stands before God as the *only One* worthy to take the scroll from the right hand of the One seated on the Throne; and again, the *Only One* worthy to open the seals of God’s judgment?
“And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “WHO is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But *no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it*. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. *He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals*.”(Rev 5:2-5).
“He came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And they sang a new song: ” *You [Jesus] are worthy* to take the scroll and to open its seals, because *You [Jesus] were slain, and with Your blood You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation*” (Rev 5:7&9).
Jesus did it, and through His atoning sacrifice has *already purchased all tribes, languages and nations!* What tribe, or nation of whatever languages else is left for any “other way” to bring to God?
Preach the Gospel with renewed fervor. Jesus is the only way to God. *Jesus is Lord!*
