The Only True God
“And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” – (Jn.17:3).
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols amen.” – (I Jn.5:20,21).
The Rev. Benjamin Chavis, the former head of N.A.A.C.P. and an ordained minister, recently joined the religious organization of Louis Farrakhan and became a Black Muslim of the Nation of Islam. He was promptly defrocked by his church. He was irate over them de-ministering him and said – “We all worship the same God.”
This is the great lie of Satan that is
ensnaring the whole world and uniting all religions in this great end time push
of ecumenism (worldwide unity of all religions). The crux of this worldly
religious unity is that we all worship the same God, only under a different name.
This is very appealing to the unsaved man. This is especially true of the
For a preacher to preach all of God’s Word, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, as a faithful and true witness of Christ, he must clearly state that God the Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is the only true God and all others are false Gods. There are only a precious few with the boldness and courage to preach this tremendous truth in these end days of compromise and apostasy.
Billy Graham recently said in ‘Parade Magazine’ that he respects all faiths and religions. That’s very popular to say and very tolerant and very politically correct and very profitable – it keeps the millions of dollars rolling in. But when you preach all the truth of God’s Word, you aren’t popular, you are hated. Tolerance is the name of the game today – no controversy. Yet Jesus Christ was never out of controversy because he preached the whole truth, not just selected truth. The world murdered the Truth on the cross – amen. Most preachers have a dread of controversy and wish truth to be stated without any reference to those who hold the opposite in error. But we must expose the lie and preach all the truth.
When Christ stated in (Jn.17:3) “The only true God,” He said it for a purpose. By pointing out the true God, He excludes idols and all false gods. Jesus said plainly that the God of the Jews and Christians is the true God. The whole Old Testament was the battle between Satan and the true God, the true God of the Old Testament Jews and all the other false gods that kept creeping in and being worshipped by the Jews. The first commandment says – “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” – (Ex.20:3). The God of Jesus Christ the only true God and all other gods are false gods. The second commandment was the law against idolatry that most false religions have – “Thou shat not make unto thee any graven image….” – (Ex.20:4,5). Mark this down – when people will not worship who they know to be the only true God, they soon will be worshipping all false Gods, take your pick and idolatry will be close by.
The Son of God has come into the world and has revealed to us the only true God, His Father. All others are pretenders and counterfeits of Satan who is called ‘the god of this world’ and has blinded the minds of them that believe not the gospel. When we are saved by Christ and serve the Father and His Son, we serve the only true God. All gods are not the same god under different names. Just the opposite – only one is the only true God, all the other thousands of gods are false. “And how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God” – (I Thes.1:9). That happened to me in 1972 when I turned from worshiping Roman Catholic idols and got born again.
Jesus said – “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me “ – (Jn.14:6). The unsaved world doesn’t like that kind of preaching – it’s too narrow. It closes the door on all the religions invented by mankind who want a God of their own making. There is only one way and one truth and calling Jesus Christ narrow minded and bigoted will not get you saved and eternal life. There are not many different ways - there is only one way, the way of Christ. Jesus Christ is the only true God and eternal life – eternal life is only through Him. If you want to live forever and have immortality, turn to the true God, the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved by the only Savior.
It is written in (Is.45:20) “And there is no God else beside me, a just God and a Savior; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” That’s plain English – salvation in the true God and His beloved Son. That leaves no room for Allah or Buddha or Vishnu or the new age gods or the American Indian gods or voodoo gods or any other. There is only one true God, that’s the truth, accept Him as Savior. Don’t persecute me and holler intolerance and ‘hate monger’ – be saved and know it. Again in (Is.44:8) “Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.” And when we’re saved by Christ we worship God in sprit and in truth, we don’t worship images. The only true God sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. Every unsaved Jew or Gentile who has rejected the only true God, Jesus Christ, will worship Antichrist as proof that they do not worship the only true God. For a Jew to say he worships the only true God, the God of Israel, and yet rejects God’s Son, is slapping the only true God in the face. The only true God is our Savior also.
All worship that denies the Son of God, the Lord Jesus, is false worship and antichrist – “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father…” – (I Jn.2:22,23). The devil always seeks to mix the true with the false until the false leaven completely permeates the truth. The truth is so watered down in the U.S. today you can’t recognize it. God send us a prophet like Elijah who confronted the false prophets of Baal. There were 450 false prophets of Baal vs. the one true prophet of the one true God. Elijah said – “How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.” – (I Kings 18:21). I say to the U.S. today – ‘If the Lord Jesus is God, then follow Him. All others are false gods. Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life. He is God’s grace and mercy. This spirit that is saying ‘we all worship the same God’ is the end time spirit of Antichrist.
It is written in (Du.6:14) “Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you” – And these false gods are all around us today in the U.S. God give us prophet-preachers today that will preach on the one true God and preach against the false gods as the Bible does; Don’t be deceived today by false prophets. Don’t follow the siren song that’s being sung by Satan today- that all gods are the same god, only with a different name – let’s all become one. “Thou shalt have on other gods before me” – Are you listening?
Soon will come the worship of the false Christ – the Antichrist. All will be forced to worship him and his image under penalty of death. The choice between the true God Jesus Christ and the false God Antichrist will be plainly taken. Images and false gods go together and will culminate in these end times with the idolatry of the Beast. The worship of all gods as the true God will end up in the worship of Satan through his Antichrist. There will be no freedom of worship then – worship the Beast or die – there will be no tolerance then.
People today don’t want any absolutes – no black and white- no truth and the lie – no true worship and false worship – anything goes. Preachers will not suffer for preaching the truth and so the lie abounds. Hundreds of Satan’s ministers are in our pulpits teaching false doctrine – (2 Cor.11:13-15) and (2 Pet.2:1-3).
The ‘L.A. Times’ carried a report a meeting at Fuller Theological Seminary in which a protestant minister and Jewish Rabbi claimed that ‘no religion has a monopoly on God’s truth.’ They proposed a ‘Theology of Pluralism for the furtherance of domestic tranquility.’ They said “Is it possible to proclaim the truth of your own faith and at the same time agree that other religions are also paths to salvation?” What is needed, they said, “Is for each religion to delve deeply into its beliefs to discover grounds for affirming the truth and legitimacy of other spiritual traditions.” This is heresy. The deadliest tic of all is the heretic. It will lead you to the lake of fire which is the second death. Don’t “follow their pernicious (deadly) ways” – (2 Pet .2:2). There is one true God in our Bible and we true preachers are called to preach this truth even in the face of persecution and death. Truth is very, very narrow – one true religion – one Savior – Jesus Christ. There is only one true Bible, the KJV, all others are false. There are false religions and false Holy books.
You can have any religion you want to live by on this earth. But in order to find forgiveness and remission of sins and conquer death and achieve eternal life – you must have the true God. You absolutely need a blood sacrifice for your sins. God, in His marvelous grace and mercy, provided the perfect, supreme sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross on Passover. Your problem is sin and you need to be saved from your sins. Are you saved? Have you received the only true God as your Savior? No other God can save you from hell and the just punishment for your sins. Are you in Christ? “…and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” As it is written – “Neither is the salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – (Acts 4:12). There are not many saviors – only one true Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Receive the truth – believe God’s book of truth. Repent of your sins and by faith believe in your heart on Jesus Christ and be a born again new creature in Christ. Then you will know the only true God.
The trinity –Father , Son and Holy Spirit is the only true God.
