THE CROSS: GOD’s POWER AND WISDOM

It stands to reason that while the Cross is the center of the Christian faith and that Satan has a counterfeit of everything to imitate Jesus that there would also be a counterfeit cross, a demonic/occult cross. There is only ONE CROSS which represents the Christian faith and Jesus’ resurrection, but the devil has many crosses. Satanists too wear crosses.

Uneducated Christians have ignorantly accepted all cross symbols as Christian but this is the slick work of the devil to deceive and confuse the church. Some of the various cross arrangements worn by the occultists include upside down and sideways crosses.

If you profess to be a Christian you can shrug off this piece of information. It is of your free will to do so. However, after so many times of dismissing the Lord’s warnings then He will quit warning you and just let you go your own way and be deceived.

You might be saying “Ha, but it is just a symbol.” The Book of Revelation talks about “IMAGES” in the last days. Satan is all about “IMAGES.” The devils “images” surround us today and he is darn serious about them. Satan’s mark, the mark of the beast, which is soon coming as a world wide requirement will be a “symbol.” So heed the warnings now and steer clear of Satan’s images, symbols, and markings. -Admin-

And by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. Colossians 1:20 (NKJV)

Modern people scorn the contemporary relevance of the Cross, assailing its intellectual virtue. Despite their skepticism and ridicule, the very core of the Christian faith is the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. A large part of the four Gospels pertains to the events leading to Christ’s crucifixion.

The Cross is the central truth of both Christian doctrine and experience. In the words of Paul, the crucified Christ is both “the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24 NASB). The Cross is God’s power and wisdom because it is the only means by which sinful human beings can be reconciled to holy God. Because God became flesh, He could die as our substitute, bearing the divinely decreed penalty of sin.

Through the Cross, the wrath of God the Father was spent on His Son. Through the Cross, the love of God is freely extended to repentant men and women who, embracing Christ and His work, may receive the gift of eternal life, that is, Jesus.

Is the cross of Christ the center of your faith?
There is no other way to God except through the Cross.
