I ask this question because it is the most important question of the day, and that’s because so much error is taught by the apostate Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion (mainstream Christianity) on this most crucial of subjects.
How many times have you heard these mantra styled words:
“That unless YOU accept Jesus as your Saviour you will never go to heaven and will burn in hell.”
Now never mind that no one is going to heaven anyway and that is a subject, in its own right, for another article, but never-the-less is it true and correct to say that WE must accept Jesus Christ as our Saviour of our own volition, that is, a process initiated solely by us? Which also means we make up our own minds as to whether we should follow Him or not. In other words it’s our decision alone.
However, could it be, that our coming to Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) is based or founded upon a totally different arrangement altogether and has nothing to do with our accepting anyone or anything. The thing is, are you surprised or even stunned by this statement? Well if you are, I am not surprised that you are surprised, because not many people know The Truth about how we come to Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ).
Now as an aside, you might be wondering why I call The Lord Jesus Christ by the name Yashua Messiah, and the simple answer to that is this, it’s His real Hebrew name as translated straight from the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. ‘Jesus’ is just the anglicised name of the Greek ‘Iousos’ which, in turn, is the Greek word for the Hebrew Joshua or Yashua or Yehushuah which, again, means Jehovah-Saves or The Deliverer. The word ‘Christ’ simply means ‘Anointed’ so we then have Yashua Anointed or Yashua ‘Messiah’ which also means ‘Anointed’.
OK, moving on, so if we’re not the ones who make the decision to follow Yashua Messiah, who does? Well the answer to that is in the title of this article, that is, Is The Father calling YOU to His Son? Moreover, you may retort, how would I know if He was calling me or not? And the answer to that would be, as in many cases, but not all, has The Father brought you low (humbled you) in this life. Has He allowed major troubles into your life leaving you desperately alone, broken, at your wit’s end, and/or depressed, with severe financial worries and without any answers or help from anyone or anything in this cold unfeeling world – the satanic system or the matrix?
You may also have a severe health problem or the dead end job is taking you nowhere fast etc. etc. This may or may not include acute loneliness, combined with a cold and unloving family or no family at all and/or doctors that just pump you with poisonous pills and drugs and hush you out of their surgery as fast as they can. If you’re religious it could also include priests or church ministers/pastors with off-pat patronising glib answers to your severe problems.
The bottom line here of course is that nobody really gives a rat’s anus about you. The thing is, though, there could be someone who does care very much, that’s if it’s your time, and, even though you most likely will not want His love, care and parental attention, you’re going to get it whether you want it or not, hence Yashua Messiah tells us this:
John 6:65 (MCV) And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
John 6:44 (MCV) No man can come to me, except The Father which hath sent me drag (draw) him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Look folks, NO MAN or WOMAN can come to Him unless The Father, which has sent Yashua Messiah, DRAW HIM. Now this word ‘draw’ is a gross understatement of what is really written and it literally means to DRAG HIM, and no doubt, in some cases, kicking and screaming in resistance like a fearful child going to the dentist and from Strong’s Concordance we get this:
Draw – G1670 – ἑλκύω, ἕλκω – helkuō helkō – hel-koo’-o, hel’-ko
Probably akin to G138; to drag (literally or figuratively): – draw. Compare G1667.
So this is the scenario we’re dealing with, not: “Oh yes I think I’ll just accept this Jesus fella ‘cos it seems like a good idea and I have given him the once-over and he seems like the sort of guy I could take a chance with – he seems to measure up very well to my expectations.” Ludicrous or what? However, before I finish, lets have a look at a good example of what it’s like to be called of The Father:
1 Samuel 3:2-4 (MCV) And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; 3 And ere the lamp of God went out in The Temple of the LORD, where The Ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; 4 That The LORD called Samuel: and he answered, “Here am I.”
So there we have it, the very basic nuts and bolts of what it means to be Called of The Father to His Son and it has to be this way, folks, for no man of his own volition or of his own mythical free will can make a decision for Yashua Messiah.
In Yashua Messiah’s name
The Blasphemous Arrogance of The Statement: I Have Accepted Jesus as My Saviour – Explained
Does this title shock you? If it does, then why? Have you ever considered the provenance of this idea, from whence does it originate? Does it make any Scriptural or Spiritual sense and/or is it even logical? The thing is, if you’re a regular reader of my articles you will already know how erroneous this statement is, because I cover this subject several times within my other articles. However, because this statement is such regular mantra of those within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion and was thrown at me recently in an accusatory way, (a pathetic attempt at guilt layering and one of their favourite little tricks) I felt it was time to rebut their delusional thinking. Look folks, we have to understand that this slogan is an indelible creed of theirs, or a foundational article of their religious constitution. For them it’s written in stone, no less, and because of this, I thought it deserved a whole article in order to thoroughly expose it for the blasphemous delusional nonsense that it is.
So without further ado, let’s analyse it in detail, and let’s also analyse how these people use it, for it is crucial to know how much store they hold in this mantra. For them, it’s literally a matter of life or death, or do or die, or even whether or not you will be saved or burn in hell for all eternity (just another of their myths). This is how important it is to them and yet, in Truth, it’s all hogwash and religious humbug. Don’t believe me? Well stick with it and you soon will, if not, then destruction awaits you; destruction being KJV speak for Spiritual ruin or as Paul called it; making your faith shipwreck:
1 Tim 1:19-20 (KJV) Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: 20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
Notice what has occurred here; Paul hasn’t thrown these two characters out of the Church for cussing. Blaspheming here, in this sense, means speaking ill of the Gospel message or preaching another message against the Gospel message that Paul was declaring and teaching. These people, believe it or not, had much in common with those of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion today, for they too have a false message – a blasphemous message.
OK, so what’s wrong with the term: “I have accepted Jesus as my Saviour”? Everything is the plain and simple answer to that, and the best example I can use to reveal how wrong it is, is the analogy of the Potter and the clay. Ask yourself this simple question; would it be possible for the clay to say to the Potter, “Dear Potter I have, today, decided to acknowledge and accept you as my Creator and thereby as my Saviour”? Now first off, does this sound like the clay is attempting to do the Potter a favour? You bet, ‘cos what he is actually saying is this: “OK Potter, I know, I have spent my life to-date ignoring you and generally insulting you by living a life of evil sin, but today I have decided to change that way of thinking i.e. I have decided to shift my paradigm and I have decided to accept you, isn’t that great news for you!!?? I tell you what, you and your angels can now rejoice in heaven as a celebration of my great and wise decision to accept you, for I know you will be eternally grateful!!”
Now how laughable is this scenario; how ludicrous and how farcical, and yet this is what they truly believe to be the foundational reality of their ‘Christian’ faith and beliefs? In the above paragraph, have you noticed what this process revolves around, for I have italicised the focal point; ‘I’. Eight times the word ‘I’ appears and that’s because this “I accept Jesus as my Saviour” idea can, and does, only revolve around the man/woman involved and Yashua Anointed is nothing but a side issue – a token, it’s all about them – the clay, not the Potter. Believe it or not the clay is God is this arrangement and as I have said numerous times elsewhere, this is definitely a tail wagging the dog scenario and cannot be anything else.
You see, dear people, that unless The Father God is involved in the initiating of this process then anything and everything else is man made, it’s bogus – a sham – delusional arrogant make believe. Let’s take the examples of the learners (disciples). Did any of them say to Yashua Anointed at any time during His three and a half year mission on this earth: “Lord Jesus, today, I accept you as my Saviour”? Ask yourself, did they say it!!?? No, they did not, and nowhere will you find this blasphemous concept printed or revealed in God’s Holy Word. However, what you will find is this:
Matt 16:15-17 (KJV) He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art The Christ, The Son of The Living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Look at what we have here, because we need to understand that Peter in no way uttered the Cainite-Judeo-Christian slogan: “Lord Jesus, today, I have accepted you as my Saviour,” nor is it being alluded to here in these verses. So what did happen? Quite simply, The Father, through The Holy Spirit, gave Peter the knowledge straight into his heart and his mind. Peter did not, and I will repeat, he did not initiate this event of himself or of his own volition. It had nothing to do with him, other than him uttering the words The Father had given him and then, through The Holy Spirit, prompted him to speak it out. We also need to understand that this same kind of miracle had happened before:
1 Sam 3:3-4 (KJV) And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; 4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
Did Samuel say: “Lord, today, I have just decided to accepted you as my Saviour”? If you think he did, please send me an e-mail showing me how, as I always enjoy a good laugh!!
Let’s now firm this up with some meaty words from Yashua Anointed’s mouth, just so that there is no confusion:
John 6:44 (KJV) No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:65-66 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that [time] many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him. [Square brackets mine]
NO MAN, can come to Yashua Anointed unless The Father calls him. This is the statement that the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious people should be chanting, not their Mickey Mouse meaningless slogan, but will they or can they? No and no are the answers to these questions and I will tell you why!
Notice the italicised word ‘time’ in John 6:66 which I have removed from that verse with the use of square brackets. Italicised words in the KJV are always additions of the translators, some being OK, others constituting a corruption, and in this case we have a corruption. This verse should read: ” And from THAT many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with Him.” The introduction of the word ‘time’ is a red herring to throw us off the real meaning of this verse. So from what was it that made these learners (disciples) turn away from Yashua Anointed? Again that’s quite simple, because they couldn’t accept The Truth that The Father had called them to His Son. Now why is it that they could not accept this crucial Truth? Yet again that’s simple, because they believed they had accepted Him as their Saviour or that’s how they wanted to see the basis of their relationship with their Creator – all based upon them, their initiative and their decision alone i.e. the clay doing the Potter a favour!! Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.
Now where does this leave us as True followers of Yashua Anointed, because they are also saying they are accepting ‘Jesus’ as their Saviour, so what’s going on here? Quite simply it’s a phony Jesus they are accepting, the very same ‘Jesus’ I reveal elsewhere in my articles.
So to sum up, what we have here within this blasphemously deceptive and puerile mantra/slogan is a double whammy of errors, i.e. 1) no man has it within himself to be able to accept Yashua Anointed and 2) the ‘Jesus’ they think they are accepting is a counterfeit Jesus – a non-Jesus!! Not to worry, though, for there is still time for them to repent, so what are you waiting for, send me an e-mail and I will set you on the right path – the narrow path that only a FEW will find in this age – MANY are called, FEW are chosen.
