Jesus is the Only Way

John 14:1-14, Jesus continues, "Do not let your hearts be troubled.Trust in GOD, trust also in Me. In My Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I Am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you I will come back and take you with Me that where I Am you may be also. You know the way to the place I Am going.
Thomas said to Him, 'LORD, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?' Jesus answered, 'I Am the Way and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through Me. If you know Me, you know the Father as well. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him....anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. (verse 11-->) Believe Me when I say I Am in the Father and the Father is in Me. Anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do greater things than these, because I Am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in My Name, so that the Son may be glorified to the Father. You may ask Me for anything in My Name and I will do it."

Jesus is Almighty GOD in the Flesh. He so Loved the world, He came in human form and without sin to be the sacrifice for our sins. He is the only sacrifice that will satisfy Almighty GOD's wrath against sin. When you accept Him by humbling yourself and ask Him for His forgiveness, He will wash away your sin and His Holy Spirit will enter you. With His leading, guiding, and directing you, you will come to know our only Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD!!! Come to Him today, even right now! The Joy of His Holy Heaven will be made known to you and you will begin your eternity with Him in all His Glory!

Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial

John 13:31-38, "When (Judas) was gone, Jesus said, 'Now is the Son of Man glorified and GOD is glorified. If GOD is glorified in Him, GOD will glorify the Son in Himself and will glorify Him at once. Children, I will be with you for only a little longer...just as I told the Jews, I tell you now where I Am going you cannot come. A new commandment I give to you to love one another as I have loved you. By this all men will know you are My disciples, if you have love one for another.' Simon Peter asked Him, 'LORD, where are You going?' Jesus replied, 'Where I Am going you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.' Peter asked, 'LORD, why can't I follow You now? I will lay down my life for you.' Then Jesus answered, 'Will you really lay down your life for Me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.' "

Matthew 26:41 and Mark 14:38 tells us, "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Watch and pray that you don't fall into temptation." We must be on guard every moment. I Peter 5:8 tells us, "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour." Stay in tune to the Holy Spirit's leading, guiding, and directing you in all you think, do, and say so that all the glory, honor, and praise, is given to our LORD GOD. Before creation, GOD already knows every fiber of your being. In Ephesians 1:4-5, He tells us, "For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In Love, He predestined us to be His adopted sons (and daughters) through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will." GOD is all-knowing of everything in the eternal past through the continuing future! "The LORD GOD omnipotent reigns." Revelation 19:6

The Last Supper

John 13:21-30, "Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, 'I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me.' Peter leaning back against Him asked, 'LORD, who is it?' Jesus answered, 'It is the one whom I give this bread when I have dipped it in the dish.' Dipping the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot. As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. Jesus told Judas, 'What you're about to do, do quickly.' No one at the meal knew why He said this to him. Since Judas had charge of the money some thought Jesus was telling him to go and buy bread. As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. It was night."

This shows that no matter what happens, even right "under our noses," there are times we may not understand the full realm of what has happened. The very one the disciples considered to be one of them was about to betray not just Jesus, but each one of them. That is why it is so important for us not to take our heart off of Jesus' leading by His Holy Spirit. It is so easy for Satan to turn our life off the path the LORD has us on if we don't stay fully connected to our LORD. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."

Jesus Washes His Disciples Feet

John 13:1-20, "It was just before Passover. Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to leave this world and go to the Father. He now showed them the full extent of His Love. The evening meal was being served and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus. Knowing He had come from GOD and would be returning to GOD, He got up, took off His outer garment, wrapped a towel around His waist, and poured some water in a basin. He began to wash His disciples feet, drying them with the towel. He came to Peter who said to Him, 'LORD, are you going to wash my feet?' Jesus answered, 'You do not now realize what I Am doing, but later you will understand.'  Peter said, 'You shall never wash my feet!'  Jesus answered, 'Unless I wash you, you have no part with Me.' Peter replied, 'LORD, then not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!' Jesus answered, 'A person who has had a bath only needs his feet washed. You are clean though not every one of you.' For He knew who was going to betray Him. After washing their feet, He returned to His place (at the table.) Jesus said, 'I have set you an example that you should do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor a messenger greater than the one who sent him. I know those I have chosen. This was to fulfill the prophecy, 'He who shares My bread has lifted up his heel against Me.' I'm telling you now before it happens so that when it does happen you will believe. (He was speaking of the Crucifixion.) I tell you whoever accepts anyone I send accepts Me; and whoever accepts Me accepts the One Who sent Me."

Salvation for the last two millennium has been brought to people's awareness by the spreading of GOD's message, His Word, the Holy Scriptures. Anyone accepting Jesus' penalty on the Cross for his/her sins will be saved. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) Have you come to your salvation which is only found in Jesus Christ? It's so simple a child can understand it.
"All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD." (Romans 3:23) You must confess your sin to GOD. Ask for His forgiveness and He will forgive you. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from ALL unrighteousness." (I John 1:9) The Holy Spirit will reconcile you with GOD and you will know His presence in you! Jesus said, 'The Holy Spirit will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said...' (John 14:26) You want to know Almighty GOD personally? Confess your sin to Him and He will verify Himself through His Holy Spirit to you! Millions of Christians can testify to this!
