GOD'S ONLY GOSPEL
- ONLY ONE GOD, ONLY ONE JESUS, ONLY ONE GOSPEL -
"...addicted...to the ministry of the saints.…For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ."
(1 Cor. 16:15; Eph. 4:12)
“…we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved…”
Grace and peace to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and in truth, and who believe and rejoice in His name according to the Scriptures. We trust you are well, and that you continue to believe, judge by, and have great joy in, God’s one and only Gospel which alone contains His Testimony that must be believed in, of the Person and Work of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The following is an excerpt from my new book ‘Jesus Christ is God’: A Treatise on the Deity of Jesus Christ, and the Trinity of God’:
Doctrine, not a moral lifestyle, zealous enthusiasm, heartfelt conviction or life-changing experiences, reveals whether a person believes in the true Jesus of the Bible, or a worthless counterfeit that does not exist, much less save. Of what use are any of these things, if one does not believe in the true God. Our actions and lifestyles do not reveal Him/him, but it is what we believe and trust about the one we believe in that reveals whether a man has the true God, or whether he has placed his trust in a mere lifeless idol. The emphasis placed on truth, in the Word of God, makes it eminently clear that if one does not have the truth, then one simply does not have the true God (see 2 Jn. 9 cf. 1 Jn. 5:12). The only way to have God is to be given the faith by God that believes only in Him, only in the Gospel which reveals Him as the only true God. The Scriptures say that those who believe not the truth are under strong delusion: “…with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH…” (2 Thess. 2:10-12). One cannot be saved if one does not have the love of the truth. No truth no salvation. The gift of the love of the truth comes only from God, Who leads all His people to believe His Gospel and no other. The Scriptures make it abundantly clear that the Lord Jesus will return “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:8).

The following is also an excerpt from my new book ‘Jesus Christ is God’:
Every person at any given point in time either believes the truth of God, the Gospel of God, or does not believe it. The Word of God states quite unambiguously of God’s people: “…God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit AND belief of the truth” (2 Thess. 2:13). The Lord Jesus declares that a person is “…sanctified by faith that is in Me” (Acts 26:18). A person who believes in an alien gospel cannot possibly have faith in the Jesus of God’s Gospel, for the true Jesus is only revealed in and by God’s Gospel. Salvation cannot be without belief of the truth, therefore, a Christian cannot be without belief of the truth. A person is not sanctified who believes in a gospel which does not reveal the only true Jesus Christ. “…when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth…” (Jn. 16:13 cf. Jn. 18:37; 1 Cor. 2:10). “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Rom. 8:14 cf. Jn. 14:17; 15:26; 1 Cor. 2:11). “…it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 Jn. 5:6). “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17). Jesus said: “…the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me” (Jn. 15:26). In accordance with this theme, Christ also said: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (Jn. 8:32 cf. Gal. 5:1). If the Spirit of Truth is not leading you, you will never arrive at the truth. If you do not have the Spirit of God you are not a Christian: “…if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His” (Rom. 8:9). Faith in another gospel which promotes trust toward another jesus leaves a man unsanctified, and hopelessly lost. What a person believes reveals whether or not they have been chosen to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. A person who does not believe the truth cannot possibly have been sanctified of the Spirit of truth, and, therefore, chosen to salvation (see 2 Thess. 2:13). What a person believes reveals whether or not they have heard and learned of the Father through the Spirit of truth, or whether they have been taught and accepted lies about God through the spirit of error (see Jn. 6:45; 1 Jn. 4:1,6). Not all who confidently self-identify themselves as Christians are following the Jesus of the Bible, for the majority—as the doctrines which they have embraced reliably show—are disciples of the counterfeits which pervade the minds of lost men. Paradoxically, the disciples of counterfeits who self-identify themselves as Christians have embraced doctrines which self-identify themselves not as God’s doctrines, but those of false gospels which promote false gods. Doctrines are the D.N.A. of the one believed in. Doctrines are the fingerprints, the X-ray results, if you will, of who a person’s faith is in. Doctrine is the undeniable forensic evidence which proves, not only who a person believes in, but also whom they could not possibly be believing in. Doctrines are like the colors on the jerseys of football players, no one in their right minds would possibly call someone a Denver Broncos player who is wearing a New York Jets jersey. A team’s players are not identified and distinguished from all other team’s players by how they play, but by the jerseys they wear. A player for a particular team is not distinguished simply by the fact he is on the ground but by which jersey he wears. (Continued on page 3)

A player may want to play for the Jets, he may think he plays for the Jets, he may imagine he plays for the Jets, but as long as he wears the colors of the Broncos, or any other team, he does not play for anyone but the team which his jersey is identified with. The jersey is like code which identifies the team one is playing for, so too, doctrine is the ‘code’ which can only reveal the one which the person is believing in, despite their claims to the contrary. Likewise, the doctrines one holds to will, without exception, always reveal the God/god one believes in. False doctrines will always reveal false gods; false doctrines mixed with true doctrines will always reveal false gods. Only true, unadulterated, doctrine—the doctrine of Christ—the pure and simple doctrines contained in God’s one and only Gospel, will reveal the one and only God. ■
The following is excerpted from my book, ‘Those Whom Thou Hast Given Me’:
"And all mine are Thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them" (Jn. 17:10). In this verse Jesus clearly states that all those who are His are also the Father’s and those that are the Father’s are also the Son’s, for the Father has given them to His Son. Imagine anyone chosen by the Father unto salvation yet not given to His Son? Imagine anyone chosen by the Father and given to the Son and yet Christ not dying for them in order to effect their salvation? The elect are entrusted to His Son, for it is He Who is their only Hope. He is their Savior, sent by the Father to save them from their sins and it is this select group, made up of people from every language, tribe and nation, that shall be saved (Rev. 5:9). As it was in the Old Testament so it is in the New: The annual sacrifice performed by the high priest for the forgiveness of sins was for those whom the Father directed: Israel, His people: "And he (the high priest) shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for ALL THE CONGREGATION OF ISRAEL" (Lev. 16:16,17). It is vital for a proper understanding of what atonement is, to take notice of just who atonement was made for in the Old Testament, whilst being mindful of the fact that this was a blueprint of what would happen in the New Testament. Atonement was made exclusively for the nation of Israel and no other. Of relative significance to our study is the fact that atonement was made, not for those who would end up choosing God, but on the behalf of the people whom God had ALREADY chosen. So it is in the New Testament: Jesus Christ, the Great High Priest of HIS people, was sent to the earth to give Himself as a sacrifice, not for every individual ever born, but for all those whom the Father directed Him to, whom HE HAD ALREADY CHOSEN—The Church, His people: "...Christ...loved the CHURCH, (the ones whom God called out of the world and gave to His Son) and gave Himself for IT; that He might sanctify and cleanse IT with the washing of water by the Word, That He might present IT to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that IT should be Holy and without blemish" (Eph. 5:25-27). Christ died for those whom He loved and He loved those for whom He died. The beginning of Ephesians 5:25 is a command for husbands to love their wives as Christ loved His Wife/Bride: the Church. It would have made no sense for the Scripture to command that a husband love his wife—to the exclusion of all others—while Christ excluded no one from His love. There would be no sense in such an analogy. God the Father has chosen the Bride for God the Son and it is She who is loved and for whom the Son laid down His life. (continued on page 4)

No other people, no one outside of the Church—those whom God has called out of the world and given to His Son—were among those for whom He died. He loved and died for His Bride, that He might sanctify Her and cleanse Her and that He might present Her, His Church, a glorious Body of people without blemish, to the Father. ■

The following is taken from my book: ‘That’s Just Your Opinion’:
The world has a million gods and a million gospels but the One True God and His people only have One Gospel. The world of true Christians is filled only with the true Gospel of God and there is no argument among them concerning Who God is, what God is like and how God saves sinners from an eternity in Hell, for God has revealed Himself to them and granted them all the same gift of Faith, by the same grace, to believe His Truth, His Gospel. "But there is a Spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding" (Job 32:8 cf. 1 Corinthians 2:9-12). The Word of God is given by the inspiration of God and Christians believe the Word of God by that same inspiration. "The inspiration or breathing of the Almighty: The idea was, that God breathed this into man, and that this wisdom was the breath of God." True Christians all believe with the one Faith which they have all received from the one and only God so that they will trust and believe in the one and only Gospel of the One and only God. Granted, there are things which true Christians can disagree about but these are all non-salvation issues. However, there is one thing upon which every true Christian agrees wholeheartedly and that is the Gospel of God: how God saves and who He saves. The following cannot be overemphasized: "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in THE Faith..." (2 Corinthians 13:5) (and not in another!). ■
Jesus said: “He that is not with Me is against Me: and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth” (Luke 11:23).
As always, I look forward to hearing from you all, and pray that the gracious and loving Father, Who alone is Holy and Just, will continue to bless all His elect through His Mercy and Truth, and that you will continue to be edified and instructed by items available through this ministry. For God’s enemies, only one thing awaits: “Clouds and darkness are round about Him: righteousness and judgement are the habitation of His Throne. A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies round about” (Psa. 97:2,3). Our prayer to God for ourselves and for all His people is: “Order my steps in Thy Word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me” (Psa. 119:133). “Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be MAGNIFIED” (Psa. 70:4). Thank you again for your prayers and support. “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the Word of His Grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).

“Now unto the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Tim. 1:17). "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing" (1 Peter 3:8,9).
“…Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen” (1 Pet. 5:14).
