Biblical Clarity

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments.” (Psalm 111:10)

The Bible insists that the God of the Bible is the only true God (Isaiah 44:6; 45:5-6) and that Jesus Christ is the only way to God (John 14:6). All other religions, while stressing their “paths,” would allow for some other contingency. The biblical record is very precise: Adam’s sin introduced death into the world (Romans 5:12) and a curse pronounced on all creation (Genesis 3:14-19).

Actually, it’s pretty simple. Adam and Eve refused to believe that God was telling them the truth and died because of their rebellion. God still loved them and all the people who would come into the world through them, so He provided the only solution possible: He gave Himself to solve the problem.

The Lord Jesus took our own form and nature, lived our life, was subject to every kind of temptation and problem humans could ever face (Hebrews 4:15), willingly accepted unjust condemnation and death for our sakes (1 Peter 2:24)—and then, to prove that He was really God in the flesh (Acts 17:31), came back again from death (after paying our “wages,” Romans 6:23) as the resurrected Lord.

Now He sits in heaven as the Advocate (defending lawyer) on our behalf, acting as the eternal High Priest interceding for us, all the time preparing a place for us to live with Him forever. One day He—that same Jesus who died for us and rose again from the grave—will come to Earth again as King of kings and Lord of lords to end the rule of the Enemy and make a “new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness ” (2 Peter 3:13)!
