TEXT: ACTS 26:15-16
(15) And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
(16) But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
KEY VERSE: JOHN 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.
There are many religions on earth. Religion is the way people choose to connect to God. Christianity is a religion and exists side by side with other religions on earth. Another prominent religion is Islam. These two religions exist side by side in many countries in the world. It is my responsibility as a minister of Christ, sent to preach and teach humanity God's acceptable way and the truth that leads to eternal life, to let you know the truth and the difference between Christianity and the various religions on earth. Many are confused and think that all religions lead to God. In some nations, tribes, and communities, people of the same family may belong to either Christianity or Islam and may claim they are serving the same God. This is not true.
Christianity started on the earth by the promise God made to satan in the garden when man fell into sin by his temptation. The spirit of satan entered the body of the animal serpent to converse with the woman and tempt her to disobey God by eating the forbidden fruit. The woman also pressed upon the man to disobey God by eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The Seed of the woman spoken of in this passage refers to Jesus, the Son of God or God became-man who should be born to destroy satan and recover man from sin and eternal death back to God and eternal life.
This is the origin of Christianity. It started at the very beginning of life with Adam and his wife, Eve. The promise God made in the Garden of Eden was of the coming of Jesus to the world for the salvation of all men. God did not have Mohamed or Islam in mind. It was never in His plan. He did not have Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other religion in mind. He never planned to bring any other religion into the world. Right from the beginning, what He had in mind was Christianity.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Only Christ can save man from eternal damnation.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Jesus the way, the truth, and the life, whosoever cometh …
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 136-138; 1 Corinthians 9
