Jesus, No Substitutes
They’re All Sincerely Wrong

by Pastor John Hamel 

“There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12)

Did you know that “Salvation” is not a matter of what you or your Denomination or “Special group” think is right? 

Salvation is a matter of what the Bible says is right. 

Some people don’t believe the Bible and think God will accept them anyway. “God knows I’m sincere. He’ll accept me based on my sincerity alone,” they insist. 

Well, they might be sincere, but they are sincerely wrong!

Back in the 1980’s someone in the Tylenol Factory was putting cyanide capsules into the Tylenol bottles. Many people died as a result. Many of those people were given those capsules by loved ones who were sincerely caring for them. 

However, their sincerity didn’t prevent their loved one’s death.

You, too, may be sincere but will suffer if you “…abideth not in the doctrine of Christ.” (2John 1:9)

The Bible teaches that doing good things and living “clean” is no substitute for Salvation, either. Salvation is not a matter of what you can do. Salvation is a matter of what God has already done for you in Jesus.

The Bible says we are saved only by having faith in Jesus – in His life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension to God’s right hand on our behalf. (Ephesians 2:8,9)

Also, far too many are trusting in what their Denomination believes to save them. Jesus said that trusting Denominational teachings in place of His Biblical teachings is vanity. (Matthew 15:9) 

There were no Catholics, Protestants, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, Episcopalians, etc., in Jesus’ day. It was just Jesus and His followers! 

This is the blueprint for His Church today as well.

Denominations are a good place to start but a bad place to stop! Move on and become a follower of Jesus first, a denominational “do-bee” second!

Then there are those who place all their “faith” in false religions and cults. There’s only one way to determine what each of these groups believes. GIVE ‘EM THE BLOOD TEST!

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess NOT that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John 1:7)

I’ll always just ask them outright, “Do you believe that the Blood of Jesus is the only means of salvation?” When they start balking, I start walking, respectfully.

Satan never desecrates Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness, Christian Science, New Age, Tarot readers, astrologers, etc. He’s not threatened by them because they all deny the need for Jesus’ Blood alone. 

Satan desecrates Christianity alone because the Blood threatens him.

Someone said, “Well, I believe in all the supernatural entities and Jesus, too! It’s all God anyway.” 

No, it's not. Just because something is supernatural doesn’t mean it’s of God.

Satan is a supernatural being, too, and he is not of God. 

Believing in all supernatural entities and Jesus, too, is like mixing dog poop in the brownies! It upgrades the dog poop but there goes the brownies!

If you’ve been substituting anything for the Blood of Jesus, it’s time to wake up and hear the gravel on the side of the road. 

Say, “Jesus, You’re my choice. It’s Your Blood or nothing for me.” (Romans 10:13)

Things will now stop happening TO you and start happening FOR you.

Start expecting miracles, miracles that only Jesus can bring. 

None of these other false gods and religions can produce the miraculous.

Jesus alone is the Miracle Worker.

Be Blessed … John and Barbara Hamel
