Just Jesus

A study by Danny Bunn, B.A (a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.)

Welcome to Power Hour
Jesus said in
John 10
"10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
         Life is in the Lord Jesus Christ

John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
         He DID NOT say, "BUT by me AND the Pope, or 'Virgin' Mary, Joseph Smith, or Brigham Young, Charles Taze Russell, or Judge Rutherford, Mary Baker Eddy, or Ellen G. White, Sun Myung Moon, Victor Paul Wierwille, or any other false prophet/ prophetess. JESUS LET US KNOW THAT HE ALONE is the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by him. Not by him and anyone else. He is the all-sufficient one. SACRAMENTS can't save, whether we are talking about water baptism, the Eucharist, confession of sins to a man is needless. Working for salvation doesn't work even though he tells us to work, to witness, to share, to do the work of an evangelist. We are called to be lights shining in a dark, sin-sick world. Trust the Lord Jesus Christ to supply everything to be the witness that he wants you to be and he will!

Think about what Jesus is saying. He is ...
The way- the way to where? To heaven, to fulfillment, to peace, security, etc.
The truth- He alone is the absolute truth, in him there is no lie.
The life- He didn't just come to us religion BUT life, life at its highest and its best.

Jesus said in John 16:32,33
"32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
         But with this life comes tribulation since this world is hot our home.
         Those in the world system are enemies of God.

         Jesus put it this way in ...
John 3:19-21
"19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
"20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
"21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."

Phil. 2:10,11
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
         At the NAME OF JESUS every knee will bow and that includes the 'virgin' Mary, any and every Pope
Joseph Smith, Brigham Young
Charles Taze Russell, 'Judge' Rutherford and the organization
Mary Baker Eddy, Ellen G. White
Victor P. Wierwille, Sun Myung Moon
And all other false prophets/prophetesses,
Including MAH-HAH-BONE, JAH-BEL-ON and all other false Masonic gods.
Even the new age Christ- "Lord" Maitreya will bow before the REAL Christ Jesus!

John 15:7
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
         Look again at what the Lord Jesus Christ said... He said abiding in him is the answer NOT in anyone else. Once again, he did NOT include anyone else with the statement. He alone is the answer that we so badly need. When he presented himself as Saviour to the world, everyone and everything had to go to the background.

         The greatest prophet who ever lived, John the Baptist said,
"28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3:28-30)

         I want to go back to the statement of John the Baptist being the greatest prophet who ever lived.
Matt. 11:11
"11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he."
         Jesus Christ said that there hasn't risen any greater than John the Baptist... NONE! He was including Mary and Joseph, their other children, his step brothers and sisters. Speaking of Mary, she would be like a surrogate mother to Jesus, he was supernaturally implanted in the womb of the virgin Mary, Jesus Christ called her woman.

Matt. 13:46-50
46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
         Jesus Christ never called Mary his mother, he called her woman. I believe one reason is that he didn't want people to put the emphasis on her, to focus on her. She was just a woman, a humble woman who loved God so the Lord Jesus Christ used her for his glory.
         We also see here that he disobeyed her, she wanted him to come outside to where she was at but he didn't. He had something much more important to do and that was to preach to the multitude, They were like sheep without a shepherd. He even said that those who do the will of his Father in heaven are his brother, sister, mother, etc.

Luke 2:48
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
         Jesus' "parents" were called mother and father from their perspective NOT his. Mary called Joseph Jesus' father even though she knew that he wasn't his biological father. Did Mary lie? No, s person csn be s father without being a biological father, per se'.
         Anyway, Jesus had a more important priority and that was to do the will of his heavenly Father. Everyone and everything was to go to the wayside as we saw before.
         Speaking of a more important priority, we as believers are called to do that same priortiy, "to do the Father's will."

         Keith Green said this: "It's not God's fault that the world isn't being won. It's not His will that any should perish. There's a little command in the Bible that says, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.' (check Mark 16:15)
         "We like to think that was for the disciples, for the missionaries, for old ladies that can't find husbands that need to bury their troubles on the mission field, or that are so spiritual they can't stay in society so they go overseas...
         "The world isn't being won because we're not doing it. It's our fault. Nowhere on the earth is the gospel as plentiful as it is here in the United States. You don't need a call - you've already had one. If you stay [in America] you better be able to say to God, 'You called me to stay home.' If you don't have a definite call to stay here, you are called."
(Page 53, Winning God's Way by Loren Cunningham???)

         To all born again believers, since I am dealing with the name of Jesus, how he is above all and the new bibles are changing that too as well as other things.

A Few Examples
God's name- God has always been Jehovah in the Old Testament NOW he is Yahweh, a storm god of the pagans.

Even his New Testament name, "Jesus" is being belittled in the new bibles, I talked about it before so I won't belabor the point here. Lord Jesus Christ becomes Lord Jesus or Jesus Christů. Jesus Christ becomes Jesus or Christ. Jesus or Christ becomes he or himů They do it over and over and over in the new bibles

IMITATE- We are called to be followers of God not imitators. To imitate is to mimic or to counterfeit, those are synonyms of the word. If I wanted to imitate Jesus Christ, I would wear a robe, sandals, grow my hair out long and grow a beard and mustache and ride a donkey then I would be imitating him to a small degree.

LOVE- God gave us the best word for his love and it is charity. Charity is God's love in action, it is giving. God gave the best when he gave his Son. His love is not based on how rich you are or how wealthy or pretty or whatever, it is based on his character. Charity is defined in the dictionary as Christian love or Christ's love. Phileo and Agape are Greek words used for love and they can be used interchangeably. One works as good for God's love or brotherly love as the other does. They are used in both ways in the word of God..

HELL- Hell was well known to most people. They knew that it was hot and nobody wanted to go there. NOW it becomes Hades, an un-translated word so people won't be offended since Hades can be translated hell or the grave according to context. It is the place of the dead either way, hell or the grave.

LUCIFER/SATAN- "Lucifer" becomes the morning star, day star, etc in many new bibles and THE Morning star is Jesus Christ, hence in Isa 14, Jesus gets kicked out of heaven. As far as I know the Hebrew word for Lucifer occurs one time in the bible and it is here AND ALSO there is no Hebrew word for star in that verse.
Something else needs to be said here. Lucifer does NOT exist anymore, he is Satan NOW. When God changes a name, he does it for a purpose, so agree with God NOT others. Names are very important to God and when he names someone, it is for a purpose.

         The new bibles are just taking us further and further from the truth. Just a few thoughts on this subject.
