And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. Ephesians 2:1-3
Is it possible to be saved without Christ? The world will tell you there are many religions or paths to God, this is false. There is only one way to be saved, only one way to be reconciled back to God , and that’s through Jesus Christ. Why? Because we were all dead in our sins and trespasses. You are either Born Again in Christ or your dead in your sins, there is no other option.
Jesus said “Unless you are Born Again, you will not see the Kingdom of Heaven” (John 3:3) Why? Because you are dead in your sins, you are the Dry Bones in the valley of death, there is no spiritual life inside you. You live for the flesh like an animal, not living by the Holy Spirit as a Child of God. Until your soul has been regenerated, you could never see the Kingdom of Heaven or stand in the presence of God
Before you were Born Again, you used to walk according to the course of this world. Everything about this world is in opposition to Christ. That’s why Paul said “Don’t conform to the ways of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2) This world is completely Anti-Christ, that’s why everything this world does is blaspheme The Lord’s name. You hear it on a daily basis, over and over again, because the world hates Jesus Christ, because Jesus is the truth, the life, and the way (John 14:6)
Who is leading this rebellion? According to the prince of the power of the air, Satan. You either worship Christ or Satan, there is no other option. You might say well I’m an Atheist or a New Age, they all bow down to Satan. Anyone who rejects Jesus Christ is an Anti-Christ and worships Satan. There is no in-between, you’re either Born Again or dead in your sins. You are either a Child of God or a Child of disobedience. It’s very simple, the narrow path or the broad road to Hell. The path of life or the path of death, which way will you choose?
JC Ryle said “You are either Born Again or wish you were never born at all” The point is if you are not Born Again, you are dead in your sins, then the penalty of your sins will fall upon you. Its a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God, repent and put your faith in The Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late! Amen!
