The Greatest Story with Audio

Greatest story ever told.    {Listen while you read!}

Greatest story because it is the only greatest God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Creator of humanity and the Universe.

After the Father and Jesus made the sacrifice by lowering themselves to come to earth; after Jesus lived on earth and performed many marvelous works and died of the cross for our sins; after Jesus Christ ascended back to heaven to take up His place at the right hand of God, then and now “ever living to make intecession for our sins” and preparing to come get us again in great power and glory. That alone is a great story that gets even greater as we consider that the only way to get to God the Father, His power and wisdom and presence, and eternal being, is through the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 14:1-7

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Do you not want and need this peace Jesus is talking about that keeps your heart from being troubled all the time; it only comes by believe in the Father and the Son; are you not interested in eternity in the Father’s eternal home on the new earth; can you not imagine the place that Jesus prepares in eternity for every believer, and want to go there at death or when Christ comes again; Jesus according to these teachings of John 14:1-7, is not talking figuratively or foolishly when He tells that the prepared place is just not for imagination, but it is prepared for you to be your eternal home. Jesus said He is coming again, in order that you might be received to be with Him and the Father eternally?

Jesus said, “You know where He went after Ascension back to the Father.”

Jesus said, “You know the way to the Father and eternity.”

Good ole doubting Thomas, with whom we can easily identify, said, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

This question by Thomas was designed for all humanity that desire to know where the place is that Jesus went back to the Father, and to know the way that we can get there after death or the Second Coming. The answer of Jesus is the greatest story every told!

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

1. Jesus is the Way.

You see often on TV large church services like that of Adrian Roger’s, and you are aware of the way of comfort and feel good the worshippers are experiencing. THAT IS NOT THE WAY! Jesus best summarized the WAY with the message “to take up the cross and follow Him.” Do you when you watch them on TV, recall the similar comfort and feel goodness, God’s people were experiencing in the Temple at Jerusalem before God brought their destruction. Like today and like a gang of thieves that robbed and then hide in the den of thieves, church members today are coming to church to feel good and then live without a cross of Christ all week. THAT IS NOT THE WAY, and Jesus called while quoting from Jeremiah 7:11, that all such flippant and self-serving assemblers are like a “den of thieves”.

2. Jesus is the Truth.

truth belongs to God

The gist of the Temple message that Jeremiah delivered daily withoout heed, but with the scoffing of lack of respect, the daily message from God recorded word for word in entireity in Jeremiah 7, a message that is summarized by “truth is dead.”

Jeremiah 7:28

“But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.”

Each generation in America, unbelievers and lukewarm believers, create a reality or truth in their own mind and heart that will make them feel good and make others dear to them feel good about a good impression of rightness. That is the way truth is dying.

3. Jesus is Life like God the Father.

the giver of life

God made life and with Him is life. At Creation read carefully Genesis 1 and you will notice that the Trinity was at work, God the Father originated the universe, God the Son mediated Creation, and God the Holy Spirit effected creation by “brooding on the face of the deep.” However almost two thousand years ago, the Father ordained that men for real and eternal life must come through Jesus.

“Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”

THAT IS THE WAY GOD ORDAINED IT TO BE SO!

4. Jesus said, “I am the life” and the only way to real and eternal life with God.

real life

Life, real life and eternal life, is only through Jesus. Jesus was not trying to fake us out or build Himself up when He said, “no man comes to the Father but by me.”
