So many religious movements who claim to follow Christ actually demote or destroy the Deity of Jesus Christ. Sometimes they chip away at this truth with subtle contradictory teachings that elevate the “godhood” of man, and erode the definitions of  our Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Creator/Redeemer God.  Others are blatant, as a publication recently left at my door by a Jehovah Witness which claimed to  entirely disprove that Jesus was God in the flesh.  I was also shocked how many people in the Hebrew Roots Movement have lost this truth and succumbed the the idea common to Judaism (and the chief reason this religion has not yet acknowledged its own Messiah – see John 10) that God’s son was to be a mere human, with a special anointing.

The New Testament teaches very clearly that Jesus was in fact God – in many places.  Jesus Himself accepted the adoration and worship allowed only for God, where angels are always seen to reject this response from humans.  Jesus made bold claims. You cannot profess to follow Him while simultaneously rejecting what He testified, and the Father and Spirit testified, was true about His Identity.

All this to share one great free resource!

Here is a free chart download from Rose Publishing which summarizes the New Testament witness concerning Jesus.

Jesus is the Truth – but there are many impostors.

This week we finally sat down to watch a DVD someone loaned us weeks ago called “Furious Love”. A man took a movie camera to document the love of God penetrating the world of Wiccans, drug addicts, and the Asian sex industry.  He  also gave a voice to the Persecuted Church in Orissa, India where the secular media has turned a blind eye.    The whole movie showed the power of the Love of God when people are willing to be used by Him in this fractured world.  This film also intensely demonstrates the reality of spiritual warfare.  Not for young children or the faint of heart.

I would strongly encourage anyone who believes they have been called to bring a special message to the world  (i.e. Torah Observance, Sabbath-keeping, speaking of Sacred Names, or some unique end-time prediction, etc… etc..) to watch this film and ask yourself if those who are being set free need to be added to by these most pressing teachings you have focused your heart and mind on.  Not only that, but has your message ever reached anyone in this way?  Does your “truth” compel you at any point to go out into the streets to seek and save the lost sheep?  And I would not ask this just of those who are labeled as “cult” or “heterodoxy” but also those within the mainstream church who have chosen some special point of truth that defines their purpose… if that point is an accessory to Jesus  Christ.  I find the witness of the persecuted church, and the deliverance of souls from the deepest darkness, to be a testimony to the power of Christ alone.  These are the stories that God used to help me to put down my spiritual idols and showed me how powerless they really were.

Most of the ministries featured here echoed the same sentiments.  In short:  “Wake up Western Church!”  Of the many people interviewed for this film, the words of one Dutch man summarized what I have said here too in different ways.  I was about to watch it again just so I could write it down, but found the clip to share instead, which is so much better.  In fact, I found two!  Many more are posted on Youtube.  I encourage you to watch them.
