Salvation Sundays: You Are God Alone

When looking at the world, how many religions are there? Did you know that there are about 1 billion religions and 21 major religions. The main religions that come into mind are Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Jehovah Witness and many more. Now, in the Christianity religion, there are mad denomination and i don't really care for having the separations.  However, there is only one God with one name who's name is Jesus Christ, who is the Messiah!!! Here are a couple of words to describe who God is!!!

In 1 Corinthians 8:5-6, we see the truth about the existence of God and who is the true God. "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him."  As it can be seen, there is one God and His name is Jesus Christ!! I love the part where it says though there be that are called gods.  There is a confirmation that people are going to call idols and what not gods or lords, but we know who is the true God!! And there are instances where you have these false prophets or false gods that people are worshipping. For example, let's look at when Elijah was showing the worshippers of Baal that the Lord God Almighty was the true living God. And God proved it by sending fire down. Now, these religions say that their god is real. But, the question is how do we know that our God is the real true God? My question have you ever experienced a situation where the world said one thing and God changed it in an instance? Have you ever been in a prayer service and just felt God move all through you? Or God has completed surgery on your heart? This is one way we know that God is real and the truth!! And the faith that we have helps us to trust Him!! Another way to know God and realize who is God is that we have to read His Word and seek His face!!

There's a great song that talks about how God is god alone. It talks about how there is none that compares to God!!! I love this song!!!! Hope you are blessed by this song!! Remember that He is God ALONE and the He deserves all of the praise!!!

I was blessed by the words, so I decided to provide them here as well. 
Verse 1:

There's no question of Your greatness,
no searching of Your power.
All the wonder of Your glory,
to You forty years is but one hour.
Your knowledge is all encompassing,
to Your wisdom there is no end;
for You alone are God,
You are God alone.
Verse 2:
Your mercy is everlasting,
Your truth is here always.
You are He who was and is, and is to come.
Who is He that can number you day,
You've flung the sun to burn in space,
and the night's moon powers light from day;
You are God alone.
Now unto the King,
eternal, immortal, invisible,
the only wise God,
the only wise God;
You alone are God,
for You are God alone.
Be all glory and honor,
dominion, and power
forever and ever, amen.
For You alone are God,
You are God alone.

Stay blessed!!!

2 Chronicles 6:41 "Now therefore arise, O LORD God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness."

    The proponents of "FAITH ONLY" salvation like to present the paralytic as an example of one who had his sins forgiven without being baptized in water. Their position is, since Jesus forgave the paralytic without being immersed in water; so then, baptism is not essential, for those living today, in order to have sins forgiven.

    PARALYTIC SALVATION: Luke 5:18-20 And some men were carrying on a bed a man who was paralyzed; and they were trying to bring him in and set him him down in front of Him. 19 But not finding any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Jesus . 20 Seeing their faith , He said , "Friend, your sins are forgiven."

    PARALYTIC SALVATION: Jesus forgave his sin because of the faith of friends.

    Can men today be saved like the paralytic? No, they cannot!

    The paralytic was saved without FAITH.
    The paralytic was saved without REPENTANCE.
    The paralytic was saved without CONFESSING Jesus as the Son of God.
    The paralytic was saved without being BAPTIZED.
    The paralytic was saved without BELIEVING that God raised Jesus from the dead.
    The paralytic was saved without CONFESSING Jesus as Lord and Christ.


    The paralytic was saved before the New Covenant was in force. Jesus had to die before the New Covenant was available.

    Men today have to meet the terms of the New Agreement, that is the New Covenant.

    NEW COVENANT: Hebrews 9:15-17 For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For were a covenant is, there must of necessity be the death of the one made it. 17 For a covenant is valid only when men are dead, for it is never in force while the one who lives made it.

    The apostle Peter told all men how to be saved under the New Covenant. (Acts 2:22-41) A.D. 33 The Day of Pentecost.

    New Covenant terms of pardon.
    FAITH: John 3:16
    REPENTANCE: Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19, Luke 24:47
    CONFESSION: Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:37
    BAPTISM: Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 22:16, Colossians 2:12-13, Titus 3:5, John 3:5, Galatians 3:27, Romans 6:3-7

    Was the paralytic saved? Yes, so was the thief on the cross, Enoch, Abraham, and many others before the New Covenant was in force, however, it was the blood of Jesus that washed away the sins of those who died under the Old Covenant.
