This is a message that the world does not want us to understand, and that is:
Jesus is God.
The reason why we have salvation is because the God of the universe came down to where we are and paid the ultimate price for us. He demonstrated the greatest act of love, which is stated in the scriptures:
Joh 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Joh 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
In order for God to have any integrity, he had to commit to this sacrifice, because he also said in his word:
1Jn 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
So if God is love and love is not just one of his attributes, then he would have to perform the greatest act of love that could be performed.
This is why we can trust the God that we serve.
Many people would want you to believe that Jesus was just a good man who lived in times past, others would want you to believe he was just a prophet. You even have others who would have you believe Jesus was the Arc Angel Michael! However if you cannot believe that Jesus is God, you cannot be saved.
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
To deny who Jesus is, is to deny the strength of his sacrifice.
We see in the Old Testament God identifying himself:
Exo 3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
Exo 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
In the New Testament we see Jesus identify himself in the same Hebrew way:
Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
In the Old Testament we see God identify himself again:
Isa_44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
In the New Testament we see Jesus identify himself with the same identification:
Rev_1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
And if you want further scriptural proof, Jesus goes on to say in the second chapter of this book:
Rev_2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
The final bit of Scriptural proof I want to leave with you is in John:
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
The reason why I am concentrating on this so much is, if you do not believe that Jesus is God, you CANNOT be saved and all you have is a religion.
The enemy has deceived many into believing they are right with God simply because of their religious activity.
You are made right with God for one reason and one reason ONLY, because of your belief and confession of the work HE did on the cross.
God came down in a physical form in the past, we have his spirit with us now and he is going to come down in a physical form again in the further.
So which side are you going to be on when he comes?
Luk 18:8 I tell you, he will give them justice quickly. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
Parallel Business Principals
You have to have a true belief in what you are doing with Reliv or else you are not going last.
Building a Reliv business is challenging and if you cannot rise up to the challenge you will quit.
So many people told me in the past “God showed them they should be doing Reliv” or “God showed them they should be working with me,” Where are these people today?
People love to jump on the spiritual ban wagon!
The reality is, it is going to take work, commitment and personal growth to build your Reliv business and if you are not prepared to do any of these, you have already failed.
So many disciples began to follow Jesus, but when it got a bit tough all but 12 left!
So do not be surprised when people leave your business that is the sifting process to show you, who you should be truly working with.
