THE DEVIL'S COVER-UP OF THE TRUE SALVATION
by Frank Buhain
THE REAL ISSUE IS ABOUT THE NAME OF JESUS ---> The name that will SAVE.
The first thing that Satan wants to do is to terminate that name of JESUS. From the very beginning King Herod ordered the killing of all boys in Bethlehem, when he heard about the birth of Jesus "he was disturbed" - read in Matthew 2:5.
The second thing that Satan wants to do, is to hide the name of Jesus. The early church experienced the mighty move of the Holy Ghost resulting in many miracles, healing, and other signs and wonders that followed them all done and taught in the name of Jesus.
To stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, the devil continued opposing the people who uses the name of Jesus in speaking or in teaching. We can read Acts 4: 17-18 when the council discussed "What are we going to do with these men? they asked. Everybody living in Jerusalem knows they have done an outstanding miracle, and we cannot deny it, But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn these men to speak no longer to anyone in this name." Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus." The devil also copied these signs and wonders using false names to cause diversion from the name of Jesus, the name that will save.
The Third thing that Satan wants to do, is to terminate all who believed and use the name of Jesus in teaching and in miracles and healings. "Lord" Ananias answered, "I have heard many reports about this man (referring to Saul) and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. And he has come here with authority from the chief priest TO ARREST ALL WHO CALL ON YOUR NAME." - read Acts 9: 13-14.
The fourth strategy of diversion that Satan wants to use is to REPLACE the name of Jesus to a false name (roots going back to Greek and Roman mythology), etc. These false names also bring a message of love, peace, revelation of God, etc.
The fifth strategy of Satan is to dominate the world religion with these false names.
The real issue is about the name of JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins." - Matthew 1: 21. "But whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the NAME of God's one and only Son." which is the name of Jesus - John 3:18
This is the verdict that Jesus said, "Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light, for fear that his deeds will be exposed." - Matthew 3:19-20.
To be baptized in water is an act of making a public confession of repentance from your past sins to Jesus, and because for fear that deeds will be exposed they prefer to love darkness and will not come to the Light which is Jesus.
By diverting the attention of all people from the true salvation in Jesus name and then leading them to join the other false names and their false man made religions, Satan is leading them to his own kingdom.
We will notice that some pray and commit their other works also believing in Jesus but, never want to baptize people in Jesus name. Because, baptizing in Jesus name allows that person to be washed by the blood of Jesus in baptism. And the devil knows the importance and value of it causing millions of people to believe the lies of Satan rather than the truth.
He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. - Acts 4:11
You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. - Acts 3:14
"Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." - read Acts 2: 38
WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING IS NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE NOR WILL IT BE A BLASPHEMY TO YOUR RELIGION. It is your pledge of a good conscience toward God and your personal will to accept a new life in Christ Jesus.
