Jesus is Your ONE WAY Ticket to Heaven! Don’t Deny Him! Get on Board! 

Come on, Christian Believers… Rise up! You have to make a CHOICE! You can NOT serve two masters! Either you’re with JESUS all the way, or not at all! You can’t say you’re a Christian, and then tell other people it’s okay to worship whomever and however they choose! That’s NOT witnessing! That is denying the power and authority of GOD as the ONE and ONLY GOD! If you’re telling people you are a Christian, but you’re appealing to the masses by telling others it’s fine if they believe in another deity, or fine to participate in religious practices which are directly OPPOSED to God’s teachings; I’ve got some bad news for you… you are NOT helping the lost get to Heaven! Don’t make the mistake of denying Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for you, and gave you salvation!

Denying Jesus due to ignorance:

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines ignorance as: “the state or fact of being ignorant : lack of knowledge, education, or awareness.” Ignorant does not mean stupid or foolish. Being ignorant just means we’re unaware of a particular topic, or have not been educated on a specific subject. I’m intelligent, gifted, and talented in many different areas. So are you. But when it comes to Calculus, I’m completely ignorant. I know nothing about it, have never been educated in this type of Math, and frankly; I really don’t care. But one area where ignorance is NOT bliss, is the matter of receiving your salvation through Jesus Christ. Being ignorant in this area will cost you your very life… after death! 

So don’t be foolish; get educated about the truth today. Let Jesus save you now: HOW TO INVITE JESUS INTO YOUR HEART, AND RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE!  If you have been living with the belief that everyone gets to Heaven their own way; through various religions, journeys, and beliefs, I need to break the news to you… You have been believing a LIE! For the Bible says: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him’ ” (Jn. 14:6-7 New International Version).



Denying Jesus due to confusion:

Confusion is not from God; it’s from the devil. If you’re already saved, but have still been led to believe that there are alternative ways to get to Heaven; you’re living in denial of the truth. You need to renounce the lies you’ve been taught, so you can do what you were called to do, when you made the decision to give your life to Christ: Tell others about Jesus! Why would a true Christian be so selfish and self-centered, as to keep God’s Good News all to themselves, without telling another single soul?

If you have received Jesus, yet don’t believe your life will ever get better, you are in denial of what Jesus can do for you! If you are saved, yet believe you are perfect, you are in denial of why Jesus died for you in the first place! As Christians, we must continuously repent, apologize, and ask for forgiveness often; or we are living in denial of what it means to be a Christian. Ask the Holy Spirit to impress the truth deeply within your heart, so you will know, without a doubt, that Jesus is the ONE and ONLY way to eternal life.

Denying Jesus by refusing to follow him

Some people don’t want to give up their bad habits and fleshly desires. But Jesus is here to change our hearts. When we follow him, our earthly desires will give way to holy desires. Some people choose the world, because they feel they can’t attain perfectionism, but this does not mean we aren’t supposed to try living like Jesus. People choose many sinful things, believing these evil things will satisfy them. But these evil things only lead to more evil things. The truth is, people are really looking for peace, purity, and perfection; and unless they choose Jesus, they are living in denial of the one and only path that will take them there.

If you have accepted Jesus into your heart, yet purposely choose not to live the life of a Christian, you’re denying the truth about what your salvation means. Salvation means we have received the gift of eternal life through Jesus, and have decided to follow him. The Holy Spirit impresses this upon our hearts: We are to live our lives in continuous repentance, by asking for forgiveness of our sins. We are to live in the world, but not be of the world. We should pursue Jesus and desire a relationship with him. Jesus wants a relationship with us! “Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me’ ” (Matt. 16:24).



Denying Jesus by pleasing the world:

To be comfortable telling others that whatever floats their boat is great for them, when we know the TRUTH… is a SIN! It is a LIE; and people who die believing that lie, are going to end up in Hell! You’re not doing anyone a favor by sharing your faith as a Christian, while at the same time, telling them it’s acceptable to delve into world religions, which do not teach that Jesus is the one and only way to God! That is to deny the very foundation, the ROCK, of Christianity… God’s Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ! Christianity is the belief that JESUS CHRIST is THE ONE and ONLY way to SALVATION! Would we set a plate for our child’s lunch, yet not fill it with food? Would we buy a friend a favorite book, with all the pages torn out? Would we put our teen drivers into a car without any brakes? Of course not!  So why would we offer them a religion lacking the crucial, key component they need to experience healing, joy, and freedom on Earth? Why would we offer a religion lacking hope and truth in Jesus Christ… the one and only way for them to get to Heaven? Why?

If you know that Jesus is the one and only way to eternal life, and you believe this to the very core of your being; why on earth would you encourage your loved ones, and the people you care about, to go about practicing any religion they choose? Is it to prove tolerance? Is it to prove you’re a well rounded, open-minded person who gets along with everyone? Is that why some parents let their children flounder in the dark, believing the lie that they shouldn’t “interfere” with their children’s religion? While we cannot force our children to choose Jesus, don’t we love them so much we want to offer them the most valuable gift of salvation? Is It a Gift?  Yes! Withholding your witness to please the world is a LIE from the devil. Ask God to remove this lie in the name of Jesus, and to remind you that sharing the truth about Jesus is the most loving gift you can ever give… It leads to eternal life!  “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it” (Matt. 7:13).

Denying Jesus due to strongholds:

Jesus knew his disciples had human weaknesses, such as fear. This is why the night of his betrayal, Jesus told Peter he would deny him three times before the rooster crowed. Peter, along with all of the other disciples, vehemently disagreed. But when Jesus asked his disciples to be on guard in the Garden of Gethsemene, they fell asleep! When praying for God’s will to be done, Jesus, overwhelmed with sorrow, was so distressed over what was yet to come, that he sweat blood! Yet he still asked for His Father’s will to be done. When Jesus was betrayed by Judas, and then badly beaten by the Roman guards, his disciples were overcome by fear; they ran away, abandoning Jesus. They forgot to trust Jesus their Savior, who had faithfully kept all of his promises to them.

If you’re letting fear or other spirits control your actions, you’re denying your God-given power and authority to overcome strongholds through Jesus Christ! You’re denying the fact that your very best friend in the whole world is able to spiritually come to your aid during trials, and give you miraculous victory! Peter allowed fear to take over, even though he had witnessed so many miracles of Jesus; including his own amazing experience of walking on water! When two servant girls recognized Peter as having been with Jesus, Peter twice denied it; he even denied knowing Jesus at all. “After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, ‘Surely you are one of them; your accent gives you away.’ Then he began to call down curses, and he swore to them, ‘I don’t know the man!’ Immediately a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: ‘Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.’  And he went outside and wept bitterly”  (Matt 26:73-75).

Denial of Jesus as THE Authority and Power of God:

Do you know “The Man?” If you have a relationship with Jesus, you will understand that anyone and everything in the entire universe comes under the power and authority of Jesus Christ. Every human, animal, and spirit must bow to him. Even if one chooses not to believe in Jesus as the one and only way to Heaven,  it’s still the truth. We can not create our own truth…  God is Truth! Someone might choose to believe night will never come, but it’s coming anyway; just as one can choose to believe Jesus isn’t real, but he’s coming back anyway! And Jesus comes with rewards… or consequences. We can choose to willingly worship God through Jesus, and be immensely blessed; or we can choose to ignore the truth, and end up living in hell for eternity. The Holy Spirit lives within true Christians, and provides wisdom and discernment against the world’s lies. Lies go against scripture, and they cause our spirits to feel “unsettled.” We need to seek wise counsel from our elders, look for answers in our bibles, and pray for God to continuously reveal truth in His timing.

If you are a Christian, and realize that you’ve helped to pass on false teachings of other world religions as being an alternative path to Heaven, you should feel conviction in your heart from The Holy Spirit. Get on your knees in repentance, and ask God to forgive you for living in denial of the fact that Jesus, and ONLY Jesus died for you; and that ONLY GOD’s SON is capable of wiping away our dirt, grime, and SIN. Forgiveness can only be given to us through Jesus Christ, and ONLY the blood of Jesus can cleanse us, and make us holy, and white as snow. Without being cleansed of sin, we can NOT enter Heaven, because sin is what separates us from God. It would be impossible for us to live in Heaven with Jesus without being washed clean! “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

Denying Jesus because you’re ashamed of the gospel:

Let’s say you know fresh fruits and vegetables are good for you, and will keep you trim, healthy, and fit. Yet, you know a lot of your friends really like candy, and they want to be trim, healthy, and fit too! Your friends are very ill from eating just candy, and they never eat any fresh fruits or vegetables. You know the fruits and veggies will heal them, but you’re afraid you will be rejected for your advice; after all, you don’t want to offend them. So, you decide to tell them that if they choose to believe that eating sugary candies will help keep them trim, healthy, and fit; that they should keep on doing it In addition, you never even bother to tell them that eating fruits and vegetables will give them their desired results. Even worse, you have an entire vegetable garden and luscious fruit trees in your back yard, growing in such abundance, you can’t even harvest it all!

Wouldn’t you want to volunteer your nourishing, fresh food to your friends to help them get well? Especially when there is enough for everyone? Don’t you want to help them? Why are you not helping them? What if you find out that the candy eaters are dying from lack of the nourishment, and your nutritious fruits and veggies could have saved their lives? Would you tell them now? … Or, never? “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” (Rom. 1:16).

Denying Jesus by not pursuing him as our Master:

Of course when we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts, the most brilliant gift is getting to spend eternity with him in Heaven! The silver lining in serving only Jesus Christ as our earthly Master, is that our prayers are offered to The One who can really answer them! Jesus changes us, forgives us, gives us strength and courage, talks and listens to us; Jesus has a relationship with us! No other prophet, deity, spirit, religion, or false god can provide us with any hope on earth, or the joyful gift of eternal life when we are gone!

If we pursue only Jesus, we won’t get confused about where to go when we come to a fork in the road. Do we really want to get lost in the forest, or take the longest path when we are searching for the truth?  If not, we must pursue only the truth! We must choose Jesus! Choose Jesus, and stay close to his side. God offers us protection, refuge, and shelter from the storm! No other prophet, deity, spirit, idol, or false god can fulfill God’s promises. The devil will use the things of the world to deceive, manipulate, trick, control, tempt and tease you. He flashes shiny material goods, feel-good passions, money; and he lure his victims with lies about the grass being greener on the other side! He even comes disguised as Christianity, which is why we need to choose one master, and follow only Jesus! The devil’s plans are all meant to destroy you, and ultimately lead to your demise and destruction! ” ‘No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money” (Matt. 6:24 NIV).

Get on board, Believers! Don’t deny yourself a one-way ticket to ride the train of truth! Hang on tight when it’s going full speed! Don’t jump off when it slows down. Pick up as many people as you can at all the stops along the way! You will be amazed at the glorious perfection which awaits you at your final destination!

There’s only ONE WAY to God, and it’s through Jesus Christ! It’s a free trip to Paradise, and we can stay forever!

  1. Thank you for this absolute truth! It’s difficult for some because it’s so simple! Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.” Simple and clear.

    1. Kathleen, thank you for taking the time to read my blog post. You are so right; it’s so simple! Jesus says right there in the Bible, that no one can get to God except through him! It’s verified again in this verse:
      “No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” (1 Jn. 2:23)
      If we take the Bible as truth, we take it all… with particular focus on the Old Testament! People cannot deny Jesus! He’s God entire plan!!! 💙

    1. Yes! I was discussing this with friends yesterday… how when Christians reach out and tell the truth in love, we are labeled as intolerant and judgmental. All we are doing is sharing the truth! Why? Because God is intolerant of anyone or anything being set above His Son. God WILL judge those who reject Jesus! The Bible says we will be hated for following Jesus, but still we keep sharing The Good News because Jesus lives within us, and he doesn’t want anyone to perish! Thank you for stopping by Matthew; I love your writing! 😊

  2. Along with not actually believing the Bible, I think the main reason for going along with the notion that all religions are valid is because it doesn’t cause any trouble. People don’t like arguments etc. and so they let people believe a lie, in order to maintain peace.

    1. Matthew, this is EXACTLY what I was discussing with my husband! People falsely believe the lie that agreeing is a peaceful
      thing to do; not realizing that Jesus did not come to bring peace, but a sword! My heart breaks for so many people who are living a lie, when all it takes is a desire to pursue JESUS! Everything is right there in black and white in the Bible! Keep writing brother, and I’ll keep sharing your words! 😊

      1. As you say, everything is there in the Bible in black and white, and yet when I look on Christians forums I see so many Christians who see the Bible in shades of grey. With nothing meaning what it means on the surface.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Yes, these shades of gray reflect the sins of those whom are refusing to let go; and let God! refuse to let go of! They insist that the Bible means something else, because they do NOT want to give up the sin they enjoy, so they claim it is acceptable, and they insist that others “tolerate” their sinful way do life. But that is s huge mistake. It’s to walk a road wrapped up in lies, and to completely pass by the narrow road of truth… the road to eternal life in Heaven! 💙

      3. Yes and they will say that we are all sinners and that they would give it up if they could, but they can’t – using half of what Paul said about the sinful nature to justify themselves, but ignoring the part where he gives the answer.

    2. Also Matthew, I agree with you; sadly many on the Christian forums are wolves. I see gray everywhere; people angry with us because we don’t want to accept and agree with particular sins in which they choose to be involved. This doesn’t mean true Christians think we are perfect, and it doesn’t mean we are judgmental; it just means we agree with God’s Word and why Jesus came to die for all of us!

  3. Angela, this post is chock-full of truth! To be honest, at one point of another, I have been guilty of one of the forms of denying Christ you have mentioned. And by the way, I love the breakdown you provided. But the I longer and more closely I walk with Him (John 15:5), the more my love for Him, who I am in Him, and for others grows. Out of that love, I’m able to have the courage to stand up for the only TRUE WAY!

  4. Beckie, thank you! I think The Holy Spirit is convicting people, because my post has been removed three times from a particular “Christian” blogging group. But that’s ok; like you, I want to stand for truth no matter it costs me. It has cost me many things, but God is Faithful, and provides just what I need! It’s the true Christians, who humble themselves, and admit their weaknesses, and ask God to strengthen them and give them courage. Like you, I’ve been guilty of this sin, and I had to ask for forgiveness. I remember being young, and being afraid people would make fun of me if I talked about Jesus, and now I KNOW they make fun of me, and I absolutely don’t care! Instead, I feel deep sorrow for them, and I pray for God to save their souls! I wanted Christians to know that even Jesus’ disciples were capable of denying him; thank you God for forgiving our weaknesses in Christ Jesus! 💙😊 Thank you Beckie, for blessing me with your godly live and encouragement! May God continue to bless your beautiful ministry, in Jesus’ name! I’m so proud to be your friend! 💙

        I went through a similar experience last year myself and unfortunately allowed the doubts given to my by others be bigger than Gods truth in my life. It is not something that I am proud of, but in that moment for me, the flesh won. I do not want that to happen to you, and neither does God! You are doing wonderful works for Him and I hope you never let the neigh sayers bring you down.

        I too am blessed by your new friendship! Looking forward to what the future holds. God always has the best plans for us!

      3. Kristen, admitting that you succumbed to the flesh in following others is a humbling thing to do! It glorifies God when we share our imperfections as Believers, and He always forgives us; isn’t that wonderful? God will use that time to draw others to you, because you shared your weakness. They will feel safe to share their weaknesses with you, and God will be able to use you to bring others to JESUS! God surely is proud of you for all your growth and willingness to follow Him. We’ve all fallen short of the glory of God! Anyone who pretends to be perfect, is not allowing JESUS to make the necessary changes in their life! You’re honest; no wonder I could see Jesus in you so clearly! God bless you, in Jesus’ name! 💙

  6. Thanks for sharing this solid truth. Jesus didn’t save us to continue the way we were. He saved us to renew our minds through His word and bear the fruit of the Spirit by His grace. And He expects us to share the true Gospel to others, not whatever might be trendy at the moment or less likely to attract the world’s opposition and disdain. Thanks for sharing once again, my dearest sis. 👍💙

    1. Edith, thank you. It means so much to have you standing with me in Christ… you: a sister who is so well loved and respected both in the U.S. and Nigeria; and also other countries! I’m so grateful God gives us brothers and sisters in Christ who pursue Him, and are not afraid to speak for truth. It’s going to get more and more difficult to find people who love JESUS and want to follow him! We are truly being tested and refined, and I’d rather by hated by many because I love Hesus, than loved by many who hate him! I pray people will pursue JESUS, because it’s getting more and more difficult for people to really understand genuine Christianity. Wolves are everywhere, pretending to be followers of Christ, while instead worshiping idols and moving in the wrong direction. Thank you for standing with me as a sister and friend, in sharing the truth of Jesus Christ! I love you! 💙✝️
