The Lord Says,  “Yet I am the LORD your God ever since the land of Egypt, and you shall know no God but Me;
For there is no savior besides Me. I knew you in the wilderness, in the land of great drought. When they had pasture, they were filled; they were filled and their heart was exalted; therefore they forgot Me. So I will be to them like a lion; like a leopard by the road I will lurk; I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs;
 I will tear open their rib cage, and there I will devour them like a lion. The wild beast shall tear them. “ O Israel, you are destroyed, but your help is from Me. I will be your King; Where is any other, that he may save you in all your cities? And your judges, to whom you said,  ‘ Give me a king and princes’? (Hosea 13:4-10)

O Israel, return to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity; Take words with you, And return to the LORD. Say to Him,  “Take away all iniquity; Receive us graciously, for we will offer the sacrifices of our lips.  Assyria shall not save us, we will not ride on horses, nor will we say anymore to the work of our hands, ‘You are our gods.’ For in you the fatherless finds mercy.”  “ I will heal their backsliding; I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel; He shall grow like the lily, and lengthen his roots like Lebanon. His branches shall spread; His beauty shall be like an olive tree, And his fragrance like Lebanon. Those who dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall be revived like grain, and grow like a vine. Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon.  “ Ephraim shall say, ‘What have I to do anymore with idols?’ I have heard and observed him. I am like a green cypress tree; your fruit is found in Me.” Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right; the righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them. (Hosea 14:1-9)

What is it going to take for God to get your attention? I just wanted to let you know that the Bible is right. It is God’s words and not man’s. Even though man wrote it, it was God that inspired them to write it. So if you choose not to believe the Bible, you choose not to believe the warnings of God. Even though there are many people who believe in God but when it comes to His Son, Jesus, they reject Him. They don’t understand that God the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit are all one. Don’t ask me how. If you get to Heaven you can ask God. The Bible clearly says: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son (Jesus) that whosoever believe in Him shall have everlasting life (John 3:16). It also says I am the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6). Guess what, the Bible is speaking of Jesus. Do you know why? Jesus is the only way to God the Father because it was Jesus who died for us. Jesus not only died but arose three days later after His death and is now sitting at the right hand of God on the throne, alive and well. You might be saying, “Marcus, I’ve heard that so many times before, over and over again and I’m tired of hearing it.” But you know what, it stands to be repeated over and over again. People need to know it was Jesus who came to save us from our sings. It was Jesus who healed all our diseases. It was Jesus who became poor so that we may be rich. I could go on and one but you need to read the Bible for yourself and learn God’s words. You see, we all were once lost but someone came along and told us about Jesus and we accepted Him into our heart and made Him our Lord and Savior. Now we believe and trust Him. That’s all I am trying to do is let people know that Jesus is the only way to the Father. All God wants is for us to turn back to Him, turn back from our wicked ways and trust and believe Him. It doesn’t matter what you have done; God truly loves you. He wants you back into His family. All you have to do is repent and turn from your sins and ask God to forgive you, ask Him to take control of your life. Let Jesus into your heart today. Remember, I’m not here to put anyone down or say I’m better than anyone or more holy than anyone. I’m just here to let you know that Jesus is the way and He is the only one that can save you. Amen
