Now I have met people who are indoctrinated and do not know Lord Jesus Christ who will defend their belief systems. Yet one of those doctrines happens to be the truth about the death and the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. These people do not claim to be Christians, though. They will go under a different name. Sometimes they will call themselves a particular brand of Christian. Unfortunately for them, they identify with the brand and not with Lord Jesus Christ.
Myself, I identify with Lord Jesus Christ because I have met Him and have a 24/7 relationship with the Holy Spirit, which happens to be the Spirit of Christ that was imparted to me by Lord Jesus.
- But you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Any one who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although your bodies are dead because of sin, your spirits are alive because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you.(Romans 8:9-11).
When I sought to know Lord Jesus Christ, I called upon God to explain the futility of existence if we are born to die, the justice in being born to suffer and why there is lack of love in this world, because people are liars, cheats, selfish and conceited, just like I was. At the time, whether Jesus of Nazareth died for my sins was not important to me. However, after having met Lord Jesus Christ, I eventually was shown the truth why the Son of God became man and had to die and pay the price for sin so that people could be reconciled to God.
The death of Jesus of Nazareth establishes the righteousness of God. The resurrection of Jesus demonstrates that He is both the Lord of Creation and the Christ (Messiah), who was promised to right the wrongs that had been forced upon the Earth by an evil entity. Lord Jesus Christ died for the sin of the world and, because of this, He is now the Judge of the world. All who reject Lord Jesus Christ will have to give an account of themselves and then explain why they preferred to deal with their sins themselves for eternity, rather than have sin's consequences wiped away and made white as snow.
Little did I know at the time that in the Bible we find this Scripture:
- “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. (Isaiah 1;18)
Evidently, this inheritance is available to all who accept that they are justified by the blood of Jesus to claim it and be reconciled to God through His death and resurrection. If you claim your inheritance, you will be given the guarantee of the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:1-10).
The Inheritance That You Are Being Cheated Out Of Is Still Available For Now
