AUTHORIZED TO BRING SALVATION

"...“Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?”...Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome: he who opens the book and its seven seals.” - Revelation 5: 2, 5

Beyond any shadow of a doubt, the name of Jesus bears the stamp of eternal salvation. It was God's divine roadmap to make Jesus the Way leading up to eternal life. And being the Way, you cannot afford to journey amiss and get swayed away by the devil into worldliness. Had Jesus not laid down His life as a ransom for sin, humanity would have been torn apart in the gruesome hands of the devil. This explains away why ignorance and rejection of the Gospel isn't bliss. Failing to welcome the Gospel and disallowing it to settle in with the blessings that accompany it, could be likened to a killer pill that makes a man to go downhill, to the grave of destruction.

It is heartening to note that when Jesus signed up to square account for the penalty of sin, He divinely took up the sole authority to purchase and give salvation. Hence, the salvation of your soul isn't a joint effort with Christ. His authorisation of your salvation is a divine endorsement of your access to life and the abundance of it. Why then settle for a life of lustful pleasure which doesn't measure up to God's plan for your life? When there was a cry in heaven about who could open the Book of Life and remove its seals, Jesus who had the mandate to authorise salvation, took the stage and opened the Book, so as many as are willing to be saved could have their names written in the Book of Life.

It bears mentioning that without the authority of Jesus to endorse salvation and forgive sins, the entire human race would have been wrapped up in iniquity. However, to live out a life pleasing to God, you need to sign up for a new beginning with God and begin to give chase to God's kingdom and its righteousness. Those who receive Jesus as the Author of Salvation are not subordinated to the oppression of the kingdom of darkness. They have the power and authority to walk tall and upset the powers of darkness without being perturbed by their schemes and devices. Have you received the divine endorsement as an ambassador of Christ? Has your name been inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life? Make haste to come to Jesus today and your life would never remain the same again in Jesus name.
