In the Fullness of Time, He Came

The Messiah was the promised hope that would bring that freedom to everyone who trusted in Him. God appointed a time before the beginning of time that would be the best case scenario for the Messiah to come to the earth. The Messiah had to come at the right time so that He would fulfill all that was prophesied about Him in the Old Testament and enable the gospel to be spread throughout the known world.

How can Jesus be the only way? Don’t all religions lead to God?

What if there is only one way that leads to God? What if all the other religions in the world are leading people down a path to eternal destruction? What if Jesus is exactly who/what He says He is—the Way, the Truth and the Life? It is true that each of us has the right to believe what we want—but let me say again that we can be sincere about our beliefs and still be sincerely wrong. The culture says, “What is true for you isn’t necessarily true for me.” This brings us back to our original question, “Is TRUTH relative?” Do we determine what truth is, or is truth absolute?

The Mixed Fruit of the Gospel

There are some preachers and teachers in Christendom today that would have you believe that Christianity is all about health and wealth. While this may sound good—and sell a lot of books—it is unbiblical. Over and over again, the Bible asserts that believers will go through difficult circumstances in life—this is God’s work in us to conform us to the image of His Son. As Paul and his companions continue on their first missionary journey, they experience both good and bad along the way. It is important for us to follow the example of Scripture in how we respond to both good and bad fruit in life.
