Another Jesus is not the Jesus of the Bible
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
2Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
I will be starting a Bible series on another that Apostle Paul outlined and warned Believers at the Church of Corinth about. There was a problem at this church, and this preacher had to address the problems that they were going through.
The first concern of this man of God is that some people are preaching another Jesus.
What does it mean to preach another Jesus? It means to preach Jesus which is different from what the Bible says. And we have many churches today that preach another Jesus which had led many people to Hell and caused many people to blamed Christianity.
Characteristic of another Jesus being preached today.
It is another Jesus when He cannot give you eternal life.
John 3:16, 18, 36, 5:24, 6:37, 47.
When we can see that all these places talk about Jesus that gives eternal life because he himself is eternal life.
It is sad that you will see many churches proclaiming that eternal life is not eternal life.
If eternal life is not eternal, Christ must be lying to us that the life he gives is eternal.
Because it is eternal life, you cannot lose it.
- It is another Jesus if he is not the son of God.
There are people who believe that Christ is not the son of God, just some prophets, but that is not the Jesus of the Bible, Christ of the Bible is the son of God.
Satan knew that he was the son of God- Matthew 4:3,6
Demonic spirit knew that he was the son of God- Matthew 8:29
Centurion testified that he is the son of God- Matt 27:54
The truth is, he is the son of God- Mark 1:1
If you don’t believe that Jesus is the son of God, then you have another Jesus.
Luke 22:70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
- It is another Jesus if he is not God. Jesus Christ is not only the Son of God, but he is God himself. He is not the same as the Father, and he is not the same as the Holy Spirit, but He is the Son of God, and He is God the Son.
He can do what the Father can do.
Let’s look at some verses in the Bible to prove this truth:
Old Testament: Isaiah 9:7
He is called Emmanuel who is being interpreted God with us
1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
- It is another Jesus if he didn’t die, be buried, and be resurrected again on the third day as he said.
Some believe that Jesus didn’t die therefore he cannot be buried and resurrected.
If you believe this, then you have another Jesus, then you have believed in vain.
Christ Jesus died, was buried, and resurrected on the third day.
Let me show what the Bible says:
1 Corinthians 15:3-4,14,17
- It is another Jesus if all he does is butter your bread and sugar your tea.
Christ does not promise you money, and many other things that many people are chasing after today.
Some people will tell you that if you believe in Jesus Christ, you will have money, and you will have good health. Please don’t be deceived, it is another Jesus that is being preached to you.
Some will tell you that you will not face persecution and trials if you believe in Jesus Christ.
Christ said this: John 14:1-4- He goes to prepare a place for us is what he promised to you if you believe in Christ.
And also he promised you that if they hate him, they will also hate you.
He gave us the understanding that we will be persecuted, but we should be of good comfort, he has overcome the world.
What Jesus is being preached to you? Christ many believed today is not the Christ of the Bible, and that is why many many will hear in that day, depart from I never knew you.
They have deceived themselves thinking that they believed the right Jesus, just in error throughout their lives.
2 Timothy 1:12
I know whom I have believed:
He gives eternal life to me because I believed
He gave his life to me.
He is the son of God
he is God
he died, was buried, and resurrected again
That is Jesus that I believed and I preached.
What Jesus does not your pastor preach?
