Message Title: Another Gospel
Date: Thursday February 16, 2012
Today's Chapters: Numbers 25-26

Hello My Friend,

Every once in a while someone will approach me with this question, “How do you know you are saved?” I respond like I always do, “Because I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and am trusting in Him alone.” Shortly after, the debate begins, they start twisting God's Word to the point that they try to convince me that I am not saved. No matter what verses I use in truth to support my belief, they debate me. After a few times I give up, tell them I am done with this debate, and stop talking to them. There is only one thing that saves us and that is by believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If we are not careful of who we allow in our lives, even as strong Christians, we can fall away from the truth and start trusting in a false Christ, which will not save, but send people straight to hell.

“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many...But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come...For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect...Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” - Matthew 24:5,13,14,24,44.

No matter how nice and caring a person can be they can be destructive in our relationship with God, sooner or later, those who follow their own version of God start convincing faithful Christians that their behavior is acceptable to God, and if we take our eyes off God for one second we could be doing the same things. The Jews sojourned a while in the plains of Moab, the problem with their staying put in a foreign land was that they began to fellowship with the Moabites, who were notorious for idolatry and immorality to say the least. It did not take long for the weaker Jews to fall right into their wicked lifestyles, including worshiping their false god.

“And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.” -Numbers 25:1-5.

Baal-Peor, Baal was a general name for “lord,” and Peor for a “mount” in Moab. The real name of the idol was Chemosh, and his rites of worship were celebrated by the grossest obscenity. In participating in this festival, the Jews committed a triple offense, idolatry, worshiping another god, and condoning deliberate sin, which all resulted in instant death. A person can say that they know God or even profess Christ as their Savior, but if they are trusting in a false god or another Gospel to save them then they are not saved. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” - Galatians 1:6-8.

What is another Gospel? There are 5 things to believe and accept to be saved. 1. We are all sinners. 2. The price for sin is death and hell. 3. Jesus Christ, who is the sinless Son of God, died to pay that price, He was buried and three days later arose from the dead to give us victory over death and hell. 4. God has a gift for all who believe in Jesus Christ, eternal life. 5. To receive eternal life, believe and accept the last four things and ask Jesus to save you. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” - Romans 10:9,10.

This simple plan becomes altered and corrupt when people add to it, such as you must do these things and be baptized, or the recent claim, you must have been witnessed to with a King James Bible or you are not saved. If you received Christ according to those 5 statements then do not believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise. If you have been taught another Gospel, it's time to accept the true Gospel because you are not saved. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.” -John 5:24,25.

It is one thing to commit sin of your own doing, we face affliction for our own actions, but it is another to cause others to commit sin, God will not stand for someone causing His people to fall into corruption, especially idolatry and immoral corruption. The curse that falls upon those who corrupt God's people is all upon themselves, not God, not Satan. We all have a choice, if you know Jesus Christ personally as your Savior then the curse has been removed and you are blessed with eternal life, nothing you do can make you lose your salvation. Satan may try to get you to doubt your salvation, but nothing or no one can remove the blessing that God has given you for believing in His Son. “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38,39.

A second census was taken of the Jews, 602,730 men twenty years old and above were counted, not including the Levites, out of the 602,730 only two men were from the first generation that came out of Egypt. “These were the numbered of the children of Israel, six hundred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names. To many thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to few thou shalt give the less inheritance: to every one shall his inheritance be given according to those that were numbered of him...But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai. For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.” - Numbers 26:51-54,64,65.

Those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior receive not only eternal life, but an inheritance from God, and while the things we do after we are saved do not keep us saved, they do increase the amount we inherit in heaven and beyond. “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” -Matthew 16:27.

Today's Psalm: 118:14 - “The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.”
Today's Proverb: 8:35 - “For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.”
Today's Prayer: God, Error, confusion, and false teaching have existed since You created man, leading millions of people to face death and hell. We know it is crucial that we adhere to the true teachings of Christ and His Gospel as we know it from Your Word. As we acknowledge that He is the only way to salvation, give us confidence, peace, and disinterment when approached by those who, in truth, question their own faith. Let us not be persuaded nor plagued by those who are determined to question Your Word and distort it with their own perversions. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Enjoy the rest of your day/night.
God Bless You, I am praying for you,
