Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! One Mediator Between God And Man!!!

1Timothy 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1Timothy 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
1Timothy 2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
1Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
1Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

 

One Mediator Between God and Man, Before we begin we must describe what this mediator is.
– a person who attempts to make people involved in a conflict come to an agreement; a go between.
– This is who Jesus is. He has done the work to bring us into a relationship with God.
Now the Bible tells us we can go right to the Father, all on our own. The bible tells us we are suppose to have an intimate relationship with the Father. If we are to have this close, intimate relationship with the Father ………WHY WOULD WE NEED SOMEONE TO PRAY FOR US? Now I know when we have a prayer need people will pray for us However some denominations have said “We need a Priest to act as a go between, a mediator”, this is a lie, we are to go to the Father on our own. No reason to pray to anyone but the Father, no need to go to any man confess our sins and be told to pray any special prayer and be forgiven by a man. All men have sinned and nobody can forgive our sins but the Lord.
Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

1. First we must note that God didn’t leave us without hope. It is His desire to have all men to be saved.
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

Some people feel the need to pray to Mary, other people that have died and this is also wrong, the only one we pray to is Jesus, the Father, we are not to pray to anyone else. They can’t hear us and if they could they would say “why are you praying to me”.
– We believe that Jesus died for all man kind and that it is God’s greatest desire for everyone to be saved.
– We were created to glorify Him. We can’t begin that until we know Him.
-Know that there is only one God. Verse 5
1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

– Some will tell us because we believe the trinity that we believe in three separate Gods.
– This is not the case we believe in 1 God made up of 3 persons.
– Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

– 1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

– Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

– John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
– Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
-Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

– Remember there is only one God and that is the God of the Bible. Allah is not God. Buddha is not God. We don’t all worship the same God and use a different name. There is only one. It is this God that has the power to save your souls. Jesus said I am the way the truth the life. No man cometh to the father but by me.
3. Know that Jesus is the only mediator.
– there are groups out there that teach that you can’t pray on your own that you must pray through them to reach God. This verse shows that is false
You can’t reach the father on your own. You can’t earn salvation. You must go through Christ.
– Ephesians 2:8-9
– [8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.
– In the Old Testament not just anyone could go into the most inner room the holy of holies in temple.
– Only the high priest went in only once a year to offer a sacrifice.
– Hebrews 9:7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
– Only the high priest could enter beyond that veil to make this sacrifice which would cover the sins for a year.
-Hebrews 9:7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
-Hebrews 9:8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

– When Jesus died on the cross it wasn’t to cover our sins it was to cleanse our sins. His sacrifice was the ultimate payment of sin.
Can you go to God on your own? YES
Do you have a relationship with Him? WE ARE SUPPOSE TO IN ORDER TO GO TO HEAVEN.
Do you pray? WE ARE SUPPOSE TO. IT IS PART OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. WOULD WE SEND SOMEONE ELSE TO HAVE INTIMATE TALKS WITH OUR SPOUSE, CHILDREN OR PARENTS.
Do you go to your Heavenly Father who will withhold no good thing from His children. If you don’t know Him. If you’ve never been born again you can have that today. If you don’t pray, know that He wants to hear from you. If you do then make sure you take the time to thank Him for that relationship. That you have that mediator Jesus Christ.

 

GIVE OF YOUR BEST TO THE MASTER
Give of your best to the Master;
Give of the strength of your youth;
Throw your soul’s fresh, glowing ardor
Into the battle for truth.
Jesus has set the example,
Dauntless was He, young and brave;
Give Him your loyal devotion;
Give Him the best that you have.
Refrain:
Give of your best to the Master;
Give of the strength of your youth;
Clad in salvation’s full armor,
Join in the battle for truth.
Give of your best to the Master;
Give Him first place in your heart;
Give Him first place in your service;
Consecrate every part.
Give, and to you will be given;
God His beloved Son gave;
Gratefully seeking to serve Him,
Give Him the best that you have.
Give of your best to the Master;
Naught else is worthy His love;
He gave Himself for your ransom,
Gave up His glory above.
Laid down His life without murmur,
You from sin’s ruin to save;
Give Him your heart’s adoration;
Give Him the best that you have.

Love and Prayers
Cheryl
