Any message that is not from the one and only true God can only create a mess! The true God is not about religion. He is all about saving mankind from the sinful covenant man acquiesced into through the falling into sin of the first man Adam, and the consequences of sins, which is eternal death.
The salvation message of Christ is the only message of peace, rest, love and life that can save man from the mess of this luciferian fallen world of sin. Religion kills people in ignorance of the truth. Jesus is the only one that can cure the ignorance of man, deliver man from bondage of religion and afford us the benefit of eternal life of peace, rest and joy.
The wages of sin is death and none can pay off his or her sinful wages and become righteously justified by God through the practising of any type of religion that is void of God's righteousness (Romans 6:23). None can earn the righteousness of God through the practising of religion. God's righteousness has to be accounted to us by God Himself. The righteousness of God manifested in the flesh is Christ. Therefore, none can be righteous through any form of religion practice or avoid the judgement wrath of God outside of Christ (Jeremiah 23:5-6).
Jesus as God's righteousness manifested in the flesh is also the Resurrection and the life itself (John 11:25-26). As Resurrection and life itself, He died for us on the cross of Calvary as propitiation for our sins so that we can live eternally as living souls spirit beings through Him. Jesus is calling you today not into a religion or to kill yourself or anyone for that matter for Him. In fact, He says: You should love your enemies and that you should pray for those that despitefully use and persecute you (Matthew 5:43-48). Jesus is the love of God manifested in the flesh and it is only through Him that we can fulfil God's divine royal laws, which is all about love (Matthew 22:37-40). Jesus is calling you today as God's express loving image manifested in the flesh to come and be cleansed from your sins with His divine atonement blood so, that you can enter into a sinless peaceful eternal life relationship with the one and only true Almighty God whose name is YAHWEH.
Religion generates hatred, promotes all kinds of abuse and ultimately kills for nothing! Vengeance is of God and those who murder in cold blood have the true God to answer to except they repent, surrender to Christ and receive from God forgiveness for their sins. Religion enslaves the spirit man in sin and energised the hypocritical flesh to constantly offend and provoke God. Religion cannot save because world religion is nothing more than a flesh institution established by the dead man walking for the furtherance of his political ambition of world domination. Religion is basically a tool used by the spiritually dead to further the cause of the spirit of death, which is to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).
Religion can never save anybody, only Jesus saves. There is a reason why Jesus was born of a Virgin. And contrary to what the devil will have you believe, there is a reason why He came, died on the cross and resurrected on the third day. There is also a reason why He is returning back to the world. He is not coming back to convert anyone to any religion, but to dish out eternal damnation judgement to all hardened criminals unrepentant sinners. Jesus is calling you today, not to die, but to live! He is not calling you into any deadly alliance, but to live eternally through Him as a redeemed living soul.
Your only means of coming out of the mess of sin and of avoiding eternal judgement for your sins, which is eternal death is by embracing Christ's Gospel message of life and love. Answer the calling of Jesus Christ upon your life today, to avoid the shock of your life on Judgement Day!
"And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."
