The Untold Story
I spent 6 years in Catholic school, went to mass every Wednesday at this school, a quite a lot of Sundays, and it wasn’t until I became a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ that I heard, or even learned the true meaning of his sacrifice. It wasn’t until then that I even knew that I was a sinner. All those years I was never taught to follow Jesus, to believe in Jesus, to be like Jesus. Or even tell people about Jesus Christ. I didn’t know that he died for us. I didn’t know about repentance. I didn’t know about how we should have a relationship with him. And most importantly I didn’t know how to be saved. Not from my school, not from my church and not from my family. Not from anybody.
My question is why?
I will answer my own question here.
Because this is the devil’s world. Because all religions have been infiltrated by the devil so that the message of Jesus Christ doesn’t get out. Or at least not correctly. For the Catholics for example, they turn to a Priest for their confessions, and to Mother Mary for worship, and idols. They put themselves on a pedestal, to be the mediator between us and God. When we know by reading the bible that it is Jesus that is our mediator. He is our go to. Jesus is the only way to the Father.
Other religions may teach this truth, but there are other truths that get twisted which cause confusion.
The devil is the author of confusion.
I don’t say this to slam other religions, in fact, Christians should always be tolerant of other religious beliefs but not accept them as the truth. Instead, Christians should respect and love others in their beliefs, but show greater love in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
It is our Job as Christians, and to be clear, as Christ followers, to speak the truth to all ears that can hear. And if they hate us for it, just remember what Jesus said in John 15:18-19
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
I say all of that to say this. Let the world hate you, we are not here to make friends, we are here to spread the Word of God, and the message of Jesus Christ. We are here to cause division between those that believe and follow Christ and those that do not.
49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished! 51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. 52 For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. 53 Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
When I was young, I use to where a t-shirt from the band S.O.D. and there album Kill them all and let God sort them out. Well, now in my new life in Christ, I say Tell them all and let God sort them out.
In Revelation Jesus had John write letters to the Seven Churches, these churches represent not only the unbiblical teachings that people receive, but the unbiblical practices that people participate in. Only two of these seven have salvation. The Persecuted Church and the Faithful Church. The others do not follow Christ, they are of the world. They are one with idols, and sexual immortality among other inequities. Unless they repent.
We must push out the word daily, so that all can hear, all can see, all can repent, and believe in Christ, be baptized in his name, and follow him until our day of redemption.
So what is the untold story? It’s the true story of Jesus Christ, the story of why he came, what he did, and what he plans to do. It’s the story of grace and mercy. It’s the story of redemption through Christ. It’s the story that so many has never heard.
Our time on this earth is running out, and the devil of this earth is working overtime. Are you going to let the people of this world perish not knowing the story or are you going to tell it?
