Draw near to God – Thank you Jesus

Lent 1Too many people do forget that there is only One God and that there is the man Jesus Christ who gave us his life, who is the mediator between man and God. Too many Christians are still taking this Nazarene Jew as their god and proclaiming that he is the God, Creator of heaven and earth, while he is the son of God and not god the son.

Let us be thankful that God accepted the offer of Jesus, who was first lower than the angels, but was made higher by Jehovah God, who took him to sit at His right hand to become a speaker for us.  Christadelphians

I had trouble reading this response to another post I had written.  A member of the Christadelphian cult made this response.  They assumed that I was condoning human sacrifice to appease God and they assumed that one man was perfect enough to take on the sins of the world once and for all.  All of these assumptions are crazy and what a foundation to build a religious practice on – not even logical.

We know that the law was but a shadow of what the new covenant was going to be, and that even though sacrifices were made every year, year after year, they never made perfect anyone one of those who drew near to God.  If it had the power to do so, then offerings would have ceased for once a worshiper had been made cleansed, they would no longer have a conviction of sin.  No that never happened and year after year the sacrifices were there as a reminder of sin year after year.  For we know that it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats, and in the case of the Christadelphians who believe in human sacrificing, that this would take away sins.

Consequently, when Christ came into the world, He said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body you have prepared for me; in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure. I have come to do your will, O God.”

And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Salvation Testimony – Dead to sin, Alive to God in Christ

  1. The Christadelphians, who are not at all a cult, do not believe in human sacrificing.

      Technically, Christadelphians are a sect, I suppose. Like many other groups that claim to be Christian the denial of the always-existent Jesus who was sinless yet carried all our sin is a problem. Any group, whatever their heritage or intent, that is not founded on Jesus as God (forever)/human (for 33 years only) simply cannot be put in the category Christian. The real presence of the real Jesus, Saviour alive yesterday, today and forever, within the context of Creator and Spirit remains the defining factor for the title Christian. I choose not to enter into a debate here about doctrinal points. My point is simply that Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Christadelphians, etc are not in the historical category of Christian. I do not mean this as a personal insult, just an historical/religious observation.
      God is love. Jesus lived out that love here to show how real it is. We live in and by that love in this life and the next. Jesus clearly taught that not everyone who calls Jesus “Boss” (Lord) belongs to the Heavenly Christ, and will be shocked to discover their rejection by the One they name, who will say, “Away from me, for I never knew you.”
      The peace of Christ to all…

  2. The non-trinitarian Christians are those who follow the Jew Jesus. He did not believe in two or three Gods and never claimed to be God or said he could do anything from himself. He knew very well he could not do such incredible things without his Father,the Only One God.

    Christadelphians like all other non-trinitarian Christians do believe that God accepted Jesus his offer of his flesh and blood would not be as an ordinary human sacrificing but as an offering like lamb for God. Jesus is the Lamb of God according the Scriptures and it surprises us that you do not accept that it is by his bloodshed that the world is saved. Thanks to Jesus his offering Grace has come over all of us. Pity you do not want to accept that, but by it you also can be saved.

    May God bless you and give you insight in the Works of His hands.

    Is Christ a God, a man, or both?

    • Marcus Ampe says:

      Christ is a higher place person (if you will ‘a’ god) and a man of flesh, blood and bones. He is the son of God but not god the son. According the Holy Scriptures there is only One True God of gods, and that is The Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

      • evanlaar1922 says:

        Marcus, a man of deception or a man who just speaks what others have spoken to him and has no understanding of what the words he uses means… Elohim is the plural word for God – three in one – amazing truth in the midst of denial

    It depends on the definition of god. For example, Jesus says to the Jewish leaders in John 10,
    “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, you are gods’? (35) If those people to whom the word of God came were called ‘gods’ (and the scripture cannot be broken), (36) do you say about the one whom the Father set apart and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? Joh 10:34-36
    To the extent that those to whom the word of God came can be called gods, so could Jesus, but in the higher sense, Jesus is a man, now made immortal and glorious.
    1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

    The founder of CD’s Mr.John Thomas did not like the trinity but had his version of Godhead, in his book of phanerosis he said: “there is not three Gods in the Godhead nor are there three in manifestation, nevertheless, the Father is God and Jesus is God, and we may add, so are the brethren of Jesus gods, and multitude which no man can number. The Godhead is homogeneous fountain of Deity, these other gods are the many streams which from this fountain flow. The springhead of Deity is one, not many, the streams as numerous as the orbs of universe, in which a manifestation of Deity may hitherto occurred” further He goes to say: “Jesus- because born of the spirit, therefore God, because God is spirit”. CD’s always try to predict return of Christ, but failed miserably many times. Few months ago I read preaching brothers speech to his ecclesia: “the coming of Messiah is rapidly drawing closer with Syrian war, the methods being used by the most High, who rules in the kingdom of man, to put hooks into the jaws of Gog of the land of Magog and draw him and his armies into the area of conflict, which we will see the Lord Jesus triumphant in all earth- then he bragging how good CD’s are- very few people in the world are privileged to see these things as we see them, but the scripture is written in such a way, that the key of knowledge is needed to unlock the hidden secrets of the Bible”, then he quotes Prov.25 v 2. CD’s say all religions and theologians then and now are wrong but they alone hold the TRUTH.

    • evanlaar1922 says:

      see what I mean – I follow the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus said would come and teach us all things and you need the key of knowledge to understand all things and quote one verse in Proverbs to back up your claim. The Bible reveals the character of God and you comment above does no justice to that character revealed.
