The LORD God, the Lamb, our High Priest and the Lion of Judah.
There is hardly any religious sect that does not have a replica of the Lord Jesus. Is the reason far-fetched? I think not. Without this most enigmatic Personage there, most definitely, would not have been the act of creationism.
He is the perfection of truth – the Light. He is the salvaging Spirit, called the Word of God. Every religion must, as a matter of necessity, find a place for this Personage.
Docetic championing by Cerinthus did believe in Christ but not as the scripture teaches, thereby parading another Jesus. Docetism stems from Gnostic ideology of human mental escapade. You may be smart enough to punch a hole in my submission, especially when the emergence of Jesus (the Incarnation) on earth comes millennia after much older religions is taken into cognizance. Jesus is the eternal Christ.
Hinduism has, as one of its deities, Krishna. He is said to have reincarnated severally and that the last time he did so he came or left at age twelve (12 is the spiritual number of Jesus). Cain went to the east (where the light – i.e. Jesus- of the day rises). Nimrod (sun god) formed an unholy trinity with his wife (Semiramis – moon goddess) and son, Tammuz. Buddha was purportedly brought into conception by a virgin mother, a queen, through the manipulations of the demonic spirits.
Krishna’s foster mother
The Jehovah’s Witness bible reads in John 1:1, “In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was a god”. The God’s ‘Word’ of Charles Taze Russell is a god with a small ‘g’ i.e. a demon. To them Jesus the Christ is an angel: an angel of creationism. Jesus, we acknowledge, is worshipped in the Book of Revelation (Psalm 72:11; Isaiah 45:23; Romans 14:10; Philippians 2:10; Hebrews 1:6; Revelation 4:10, 5:13-14). Heb. 1:6 is a quotation from Isaiah 45:23, and the eventuation of which we see in Revelation. Revelation 5:8 “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” Does the Bible allow the worship of an angel? Jesus sits on a throne of judgment. How many angels adjudicate in the matters of celestial assizes?
Horus and mother Isis
Osiris and Isis gave birth to Horus to complete the Egyptian form of trinitarian worship. Horus is deified as the second member of Egyptian worship. A blogger presents this (Osiris, Isis & Horus) as the original trinity. Definitely Metal Gaia does not have any information concerning Babel’s trinity of Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz, which, esoterically speaking, is the first duplication of the Trinity. The reading of Genesis 1:1-3 reveals the true Trinity. The fourth word of the first verse, ‘God’ is Elohiym, the plural of Eloahh! Verse two beams the light of scripture on the Holy Spirit. The Eternal Father spoke in verse three, on behalf of the Trinitarian Godhead, “Let there be light”. This is not a created light. The light of creationism came into being in the 14th verse. The Light of the 3rd verse is the True Light (John 1:1-14), Metal Gaia (blogger), take note please.
Ifa worshippers of Nigeria, Benin Republic and Brazil call the Creator Olodumare, which literally means ‘the owner of the oracle, the son of Àrè’. How is this so? Simple. Adam, no doubt, with his exceptional intelligence, should have known it and passed it to his offspring. Noah probably taught his children. It’s quite easy to have an idea passed down to another generation. Satan, who must continue to have man deceived, teaches the perversion of its idolatrous form to every generation. He’s been there before the creation of man.
Jesus of the Bible, evidently as a Spirit Being, wants to occupy our hearts. “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him” (John 14:23). This is quite an incongruity with Roman Catholic Church’s love for the physical artwork of Jesus. Which Yeshua is this? John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”. The Spirit of regeneration dwells in our own spirit. The truth of Jesus is evidenced in the words of faith we speak in worship.
But some must put the supposedly ‘photograph’ of Jesus in their churches, homes and vehicles. Which Jesus is this? Demonic Jesus, of course!
Islam calls Him Issa. They know Him as one of the prophets (lower in rank to Mohammad), yet Qur’an calls him the word and spirit of Allah, “Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Messiah: Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah” 3:45. This is what Qur’an says in 4:171, “O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers.
