The Holy Bible ministers the facts about witnesses. For instance, in Jesus Christ’s birth, there were three wise witnesses who testified who He is through their gifts. They testified that He is King, our High Priest, the Sacrificial Lamb of God sent by God His Father for the atonement and remission of sins. And He is The resurrected Savior. And since He is risen from the dead and is alive forever (Matthew 2:1-12). Jesus Christ were given:
Gold: was the Gift for kings. Future kings were given gold upon their birth. Jesus Christ is the King above all kings and Lord above all lords (Revelation 19:16)!
Frankincense: was another profound witness of who Jesus Christ is. It was part of the ingredients for “Sacred Anointing oil” (Exodus 30:34). The Word Christ means: “The Anointed One.” Also Priests had to go before the Lord to sacrifice animals for the atonement of sins on behalf of the congregation (Mediator), and they had to burn Frankincense as a fumigant for sacrifice (Leviticus 2:1-2). This testifies as a witness that Jesus Christ is, The Sacrificial Lamb of God for the remission and atonement for sins (Hebrews 9).
The word “Atonement” is a very powerful word in any human language and is easy to remember. At-one-ment: which means Jesus Christ made the way for us to be right with God, and be one with God through the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed at Calvary. He gave us the power to choose to live right in Christ. All humanity are bound in sin by the adamic sins nature and Jesus Christ came set us free from the bondage and slavery of sin and death. And through Him, all born-again Christian have the power to overcome.
Myrrh: was used in Jesus Christ’s day for embalming the dead along with aloe’s (John 19:38-42). This proves that Jesus Christ had to suffer to the point of death for the ransom of many. As the Book of Hebrews 9:28 also testifies, “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sins.”
Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross through trumped up charges by several false witnesses. But the Gospel doesn’t stop there. He also raised from the dead and ascended back into Heaven in bodily flesh and sits at God His Fathers right hand. The Holy Spirit and the Holy Bible has witnessed this fact through the Gospel of His Holy word and still testifies today these facts through the illumination of the truth into men’s hearts and through a real physical experience with Jesus Christ as Lord.
We as believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ also witness these facts through living a holy and godly born-again life through the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:1-15). Which testifies to the fact that we have been regenerated though His blood, born-again by the Spirit of God, forged in holy fire and been in the presence of Jesus Christ.
There’s even a great cloud of witnesses who has passed from death to eternal life, who has gone before us (Hebrews 12), teaching us what to do, what not to do, how to live in the Spirit of God. How to get saved and stay saved. Showing us by examples the power, the judgments and the mercies of God from Adam thousands of years ago to today. Even the Apostle John testifies about 3 witnesses:
Opening Scripture 1 John 5:6-8 This is He who came by water and blood-Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: The Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.”
There is Heavens witness and earths witnesses. Also there are eternal witnesses that the Holy Bible reveals who will testify for or against all Humanity in the final eternal judgment and without all three eternal witnesses no one can enter Heaven. And these three eternal witnesses are:
Witness: ‘Attestation (testimony) of a fact or event (The Holy Bible). One that give evidence; specifically one who testifies in a cause before a judicial tribunal. Something serving as evidence or proof (archaeology). Or one who has personal knowledge of something, or a public affirmation by word or example usually religious faith or conviction (loving God, living according to His standards righteously, godly and morally)’
The Law, weather it be Jewish or Judicial Law, states: “Where there are two or three witnesses, shall the matter be established.”
Deuteronomy 19:15-17 One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established. If a false witness rises against any man to testify against him of wrongdoing, then both men in the controversy shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judge who serve in those days.
This also reflects Jesus Christ Himself. He is Lord above all lords (Revelation 19:16). He is our High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-16) and He is Judge of all (John 5:18-30). Jesus Christ also taught on this very principle in Matthew 18:15-16 Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, ‘that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’
Jesus Christ loves you so much that He sent His word of absolute and total inerrant truth under 3 witnesses. God’s Holy Spirit who inspired the Old Testament and the New Testament. And here’s the verdict: All humanity will face God the Father and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ at the judgment. And this is how it will all take place:
Revelation 20:11-13 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
When the books are opened, how will you stand before the Eternal Judge? What will be recorded for or against you on that day according to the Books? There are 4 Books in all found in the Holy Bible where we will all be judged by. But we will only minister three of the four books found in the Holy Bible in this message.
1). The Book of Idle Words: Matthew 12:36-37 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give and account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be justified and by your words you will be condemned.
What are “idle words?” Foolish talk, meaningless ramblings of words and conversations that has no eternal value or edification. Gossip, slander, making oaths you never intended to keep (Matthew 5:33-37). Lying (bearing false witness), arguing (causing division), False teachings, Cussing and curse cast (James 3:8-11). Taking the name of God in vain (for God will not hold anyone guiltless who takes His name in vain- Exodus 20:7).
2). The Book of Deeds: Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.
The Lord Jesus uses the word “rewards” as judgment. Rewards goes both ways, they are not always blessings. The Book of Deuteronomy 28 testifies this simple fact. Blessings and curses are based upon our daily choices whether we will live by the Holy Bible or not. Our eternal destination is based upon our daily choices here on earth which will determine where we will be after this life, Heaven or Hell.
Jesus Christ will separate the sheep from the goats. He will separate the righteous from the rebellious (the wicked ones). Saints from sinners. He will separate those who followed the Lord, from those who rejected Jesus Christ as Lord in words and in deeds. Because in the final judgment when the books are opened, He is going to judge all by our words and our deeds. What we did and said. Things that you knew was right to do and say and did not do. And the things you did not do that you should’ve done.
As for ministers of the Lord, He will judge what we did and did not do, our motives and every thought and intent of the heart. Even those He told us to witness to and we did not. Prayed for and did not. Told us to help, visit, and feed and did not. What we said and did not say. Especially when He has given a message and were afraid to preach it and didn’t.
Revelation 21:8 says that the cowardly, the fearful will burn in the lake of fire for all eternity in the second death. And when we did preached His Word, did we preach and presented it His way or not? By His Holy Spirit or by our own selfish motive and ambitions? Everything will be judged.
Matthew 25:31-46 When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
It’s not about doing good only, that will get you to Heaven! Nor can knowing about God, or believing in God only can get you there either! But it is also about knowing Jesus Christ as your Lord, Savior, Redeemer and Justifier! It is all the above that will get to Heaven!
Matthew 7:21-23 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
What is the will of God? Loving God with all your heart, with all your strength, with all your mind and all your soul. Doing good. Living godly, holy and morally. Following The Lord. Having a close relationship with God just like Enoch had walked.
“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
These are they who did some form of good works and godly exploits, but never took the time to know God, by reading and studying His word. By getting into His presence and fellowship with Him in prayer. Nor did they commune with God and His children in church.
Then after Jesus Christ separates the sheep from the goats, Christians from the rebellious impenitent sinners who rejected Jesus Christ on earth in this life, not only by words but also by deeds. And before the Almighty God who will cast goats into the lake of eternal fire where your sinful lusts can never be satisfied and the fires of Hell cannot be quenched. Where the hope of salvation has totally and completely died from the eternal soul. The very place where the presence of God is not!
3). The Book of Life: Revelation 20:14-15 And Death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.
Our choices on earth determines where we will spend eternity. Now there are many who do not believe God will cast people to Hell despite what the Holy Bible testifies as the absolute, most reliable and credible witness on all the earth. Since God Almighty spoken and promised, as His Holy Spirit inspired holy men to write the Holy Bible, for and against all humanity.
Hell and the Lake of Fire was originally created for the devil and the 3rd of all holy angels (Revelation 20:10) who followed satan in the rebellion (Revelation 12:7-10) against God which became demons.
But those who follows satan in rebellion against God will be likewise cast into the Lake of Fire with satan, the beast, the false prophet and his un-holy angels as well. Anyone who sins and rejects Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, your father is the devil and where he will go, you will go also.
Our choices now on earth will determine where we will spend eternity. And when people really see the Lake of Fire, no one will be willing to go. This is why God will cast those who are not found in the Book of Life, into the tormenting Lake of Fire for all eternity without end, where your sinful desires will never be satisfied and the fire and fervent heat will never be quenched!
Where billions upon billions of people from all nations in every human generation from the beginning to end, will be groping and clawing through one another trying to find their way of escape, but will find none! Because all along, born-again Christians and church all across the world has been preaching the only way of escape is through Jesus Christ! You should’ve listened! You should’ve believed and repented while you still had the opportunities on earth.
This is why Jesus Christ was sent by God our Heavenly Father for the remission of sins and to save us from the wrath of God (eternal hellfire and damnation). And He warns us well ahead of time on earth
Luke 12:4-5 And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you Who, you should fear: Fear Him (The Most High God) who, after He has killed, has power to cast into Hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!”
And to you, self proclaimed christians, you hypocrites who never repented from your sins. Who think you can shack up, fornicate, have a couple sips of alcohol and be wild and worldly and live by your own way and standards, living like the devil! Repent and get ready! For the appearance of Jesus Christ is at hand!
Matthew 24:36-51 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed (happy) is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.
But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
So the Law, the Holy Bible and God Himself are our witnesses whom will testify for or against us in that final day. Also in the final Judgment that all humanity will face, there are 3 more additional eternal witnesses that will proclaim on our behalf who’s we truly are in all eternity, The Blood, The Spirit and The Book.
The Blood of Jesus Christ
Is our first eternal witness. That will testify on our behalf or against us on that final day of judgment who’s children we are. Jesus Christ children? Or satan’s? In order to enter Heaven, we first must have faith to believe with all our hearts that Jesus Christ is the Savior and confess our sins to Him and be cleansed of our sins by the blood of Jesus Christ. You cannot be saved without. You cannot have fellowship with God without the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ,
Romans 5:1-11 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
1 John 1:6-7 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, accordingly His riches of His grace.
This is why it is written that the way of escape from eternal damnation is through Jesus Christ, John 14:6 I Am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Jesus Christ is that door into Heaven and only His sheep can enter therein, John 10:7-9 Most assuredly I say to you, I Am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I Am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
Jesus Christ is the narrow path of righteousness and holiness to eternal life, Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way (the highway to Hell) that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. “Because narrow is the gate and difficult (straight) is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
The Holy Spirit
Is our second eternal witness. In order to receive the Holy Spirit, we must repent of our sins, be cleansed by the blood of Jesus in order to be born-again by God’s Holy Spirit. Our bodies were created by God for His Spirit to dwell in. As the Holy Bible teaches: “your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:15-20). Therefore the Holy Spirit will not fill impenitent, sinful, immoral, ungodly temples unless we come to repentance.
John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water (water baptism/repentance) and of the Spirit (God’s Holy Spirit), he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind (Ruach) blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
The word “wind” that Jesus uses here is Ruach in Hebrew which means Spirit, breath and wind referring to the Ruach Ha’Kodesh (Holy Spirit). Which is literally describing, in order to be born-again, God has to breath the breath (the Ruach) of life into our hearts in order to be spiritually born-again, alive, spiritually awakened in order to have a real fellowship and close relationship with God.
The Book of Life
And the 3rd eternal witness is the Lambs Book of Life. If our names are not written therein, no one can enter Heaven either.
Revelation 21:27 But there shall by no means enter into it (Heaven/New Jerusalem) anything that defiles, or causes abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lambs Book of Life.
And yes, God still blots people out of His Book of Life. Backsliders who do not take heed and repents and turns to the living and true God. Who once have known Him, who were once enlightened and have tasted His goodness, mercy and blessings. Who have at one time partaken of His Holy Spirit but fell out of fellowship with God. Or have rejected the narrow way that leads to eternal life, you can loose your salvation. You see, without all these 3 eternal witnesses on your behalf, you will not enter Heaven.
Revelation 3:5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
The Holy Bible is God’s infallible absolute and total inerrant Word. It’s not some cultures popular opinion back in ancients times that no longer apply today. It’s not a fairy tale. It is fact and truth and all humanity can be saved and judged in accordance to the promises of what is written in this Holy Book of God.
I’m here to tell you the good news of The Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the only way of escape from this eternal judgment to come. His blood that was shed on the cross at Calvary, and is the only means for the stain and guilt of your past sins to be washed away (Romans 6:23). What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
What is Regeneration? ‘A spiritual renewal, revival or awakening.’ All humanity are born dead spiritually through the rebellion of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3). And in order to be alive spiritually, one must first repent (stop sinning and turn away from sins, worldliness and carnality) and be cleansed from your sins through the blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1-11). Then be baptized by the Holy Spirit (John 3:5-8) in this very order.
Because no one can be regenerated by the Holy Spirit without repentance. And the Holy Spirit cannot enter your heart without the cleansing of the blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our baptizer of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11) and the Holy Spirit will not fill impenitent, sinful, dirty temples. And your name will not be written in the Lambs Book of Life unless you are born-again by the Spirit of God. How does a sinner become justified by the blood of Jesus Christ? “By your words you shall be justified…”
Romans 10:5-17 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:
How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
So how shall one be saved? You must be convinced that you’re a sinner and need Jesus Christ. He is the only way to Heaven, There is no other way. Confess your sins to God. Repent meaning, to denounce and turn away from sins, the world and carnality (the fleshes will/desire). And believe Jesus Christ is Lord and will save you if only you would ask Him to save you in faith. And Believe in your heart and confess out of your mouth with all sincerity both now and publicly that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Believe in your heart and confess out of your mouth, Jesus Christ came into this world by the virgin birth, conceived by the Holy Spirit. Who died on the cross for your sins. And raised from the dead to give us eternal life.
Pray to Father God in Jesus name to save you right now, where ever you are at, as you sense God drawing you to pray. Invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart and be Lord of your life. Ask Him to cleanse and deliver you from all sins and rebellion (Matthew 1:21). Ask Him to write your name in the Lambs Book of Life. Make a covenant with God today, that you want to live a new life that He promised through the power of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit because we cannot enter Heaven without, nor can we have fellowship with God or successfully live this new life in Christ without the help and power of the Holy Spirit. This is how we become the children of God.
