JOHN 6:40 “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
JOHN 6:47 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
JOHN 6:53-54 “Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Did you ever notice how most “religions” who never talked about Jesus (that I ever heard); now acknowledge him and speak of him? Well, I have. I distinctly remember when the Jehovah’s Witnesses made it a point to go door to door to recruit on Christmas Day. It literally backfired because they were met with so much hostility that they eventually had to go and rethink everything. After much rethinking and I don’t know what else; perhaps studying…they changed. They now say that he is a prophet.
I had not heard the Muslims talk about Jesus; but now I have. It’s not their main mantra though. I have heard the whole spill. I won’t go into it as I’m not out to spark a debate; but their version of historical spirituality is not in line with the bible. Either the Holy Quaran is true or The Holy Bible is true. It can’t be both. Now, I’m a middle of the road kind of person…like a lot of people…BUT NOT ON THIS!
I believe every word in the bible. I don’t have to name the God of the Muslims; that isn’t necessary. His name is not in the bible nor is the name of Muhammad.
I could probably go in and examine a few other groups; but that isn’t necessary…because I know that Jesus is real and is the Son of God. Jesus came to save us. Who will save the Jehovah’s Witnesses? Who will save the Muslims?
I believe that they will all come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior. That is my prayer. My job whether everyone likes it or not is to get you ready. __________________________________________________________________________
John 3:17,18 “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him ( our part ) is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

JOHN 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
