The world and many of its religions tell us that there are many ways to Heaven but which one is the right one and which one do I need to follow? Too many people try to follow the crowd, the problem with this is that the crowd may not know which way to go either and are just following the widest path with the least amount of resistance.
God’s adversary, Satan, can make his way look like the way to everlasting life and happiness. He has had a long time to practice this so that anything that he or his followers do will look correct to many people, until it is too late. Satan was created as an angel, the Archangel of God at one time but he got greedy and wanted to be like the Most High and ascend to His throne. That is when he was thrown out of Heaven along with a third of the angels who had decided to follow him. In the Old Testament in the book of Isaiah there is a description of the reason for his fall:
“How are thou fallen from heaven. O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” Is. 14: 12-14
Many of the world’s religions that do not follow God and Jesus were brought about by Satan and his angels so he is “religious” but he wants us to worship him not the Truth.
It is apparent in the news and in our world that he is at work trying to discredit Christians because of the misinformation that is being turned loose on the world about the” end of the world”! The end will come when God says so and not a moment sooner, regardless of some so-called “code” that someone believes that has been found in the Bible. The advertisements this past weekend were claiming that “the Bible guarantees it” and they are making a mockery of God’s Word!
Our Lord will come back, but there is no code or secret book that tells us when! We live by faith in Him and in what He said and that is that He will come back and receive us to Himself when it is time according to the Father’s time. Jesus said only the Father, God Himself, knows the day or the hour of the end. No one else! Don’t be deceived by these claims. Read, study and pray while reading God’s Word. He will reveal what you need to know to you.
