It is written: The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” Since He is the Lamb of God, then it is little wonder that He was born at a time when there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night… when other lambs were being born in the time of the northern spring… which places the birth of Jesus Christ of the Bible between February and April of the northern hemisphere according to the Julian calendar. So who is this Jesus Christ whose birthday is celebrated and commemorated on the 24th December every year? Whoever he is, he is not the Jesus Christ who is written about in the gospels of Luke and John.

It is written: “And do not call anyone on Earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and He is in Heaven,” Jesus said in the gospel of Matthew as He was teaching the crowds and His disciples. So who then is the Jesus of the religion that encourages, no, expects their priests to be called ‘father’ by their congregational members? Whoever this Jesus is whom they believe in, he is certainly not the Jesus who is written about in the Bible, for the biblical Jesus clearly told His disciples, “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on Earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and He is in Heaven. Nor are you to be called ‘teacher,’ for you have one Teacher, the Christ.”

It is written that the Jesus Christ of the gospel of Mark said, “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My Name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well,” which means those who say they believe in Jesus but cannot and do not drive out demons, who cannot and do not speak in tongues, who cannot and do not pick up snakes and drink poison without getting hurt at all, and who cannot and do not lay hands on the sick and see that they will be healed, must be believing in a different Jesus Christ than the Jesus Christ of the gospel of Mark. For that same Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing.” As such, it is simply logical that Jesus Christ – the One who is written about in the Bible – has believers who can do such things.

No wonder it is so confusing for those who are observing the disciples and believers of Jesus Christ… for many are the differences in their practices and beliefs. Be confused no more. For whoever the Jesus Christ is who is born on December 24th, he is not the Jesus Christ of the Bible. For whoever the Jesus Christ is who has his priests being called ‘father’, he is not the Jesus of the Bible. And whoever the Jesus Christ is whose disciples cannot and do not drive out demons or speak in tongues or heal the sick, he is a different Jesus.

And so not to offend the disciples and believers of those extra-biblical Jesus’… those who are believers and disciples of the Jesus Christ of the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – who is the Author of the letters to the churches of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea – who hold onto what is written as it is written, must stop correcting the practices, beliefs and doctrines of those who follow a Jesus other than the One who is written of in the Bible. That is the only right thing to do, and that is the only way to make the peace amongst all those who call themselves ‘Christians’ but follow a Jesus different from the One who is testified about in the Bible. As it is written: Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

When it is clear that there are those who are listening to and preaching the words of a Jesus Christ who is contrary or different from the One whom we have come to know and the One who is written of in the gospels, it is time for us, elect, to learn to be wise and not accuse them of error. For they may be in error by the standard of what is written in our gospels, but they may not be in error by the standard of theirs. So who are we to judge or correct when in truth we are following a different Jesus? They have theirs and we have ours, and if they will listen, then we will tell them about ours. If they will not, it does not change who our Jesus Christ is and we have not judged them; only testified and borne witness to our Jesus as He instructed us, “And you also must testify, for you have been with Me from the beginning,” and He has promised, “…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.”

It is time for separation, a separation of the different Jesus’ who are worshipped in the world… and it is time to know who your Jesus is and why you are following Him. For how can you be a man of truth if you do not know who sent you, for it is written: “…he who works for the honour of the one who sent him is a man of truth…” It is not when you work for the honour of the ones who sent you, but the one, that you are a man of truth. So then, elect, to be a real man of truth, we must first realise we have been sent by one Jesus only – the Jesus who is written of in the four gospels – and we are not sent by a conglomerate of Jesus Christs, which include ones who are not the only begotten Son of God but are angels, or the Jesus Christ who is a good man or a prophet of God, or the Jesus Christ whose priests are allowed to be called ‘fathers’, whose believers do not have the signs of speaking in tongues, healing, driving out demons and protection from picking up serpents and drinking poison accompanying their preaching of their gospel, or the one who is born on a date different from ours. As to who these Jesus’ are, we do not know.

The One we know is the One who is written about in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John… and the Holy Spirit whom He has sent from His Father reminds us only of what Jesus has said. You see, elect, our Jesus did not send us a holy spirit who would consider that it seemed good not to burden the gentiles with anything beyond avoidance of abstinence from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. On the contrary, the Holy Spirit of the Jesus Christ He raised from the dead would never condone any teaching that goes against the words of Jesus Christ, for the very words of Jesus Christ of the gospels were given to Him by God Himself. So whoever is the holy spirit who was referred to in Acts 15.28, we do not know… but the elders of the Jerusalem church introduced him into the churches of our Lord and Saviour.

You see, elect, we must learn from the example set by the commander of the army of the Lord who spoke to Joshua when Joshua asked him, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” and he replied, “Neither, but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” So if we are asked which side are we on… the answer is ‘neither’. When we are asked which extra-biblical Jesus do we favour, the answer is ‘neither’.

We are not here to honour the Jesus who was born on December 24th, for he did not send us… nor the one whose priests are called ‘father’, for he did not send us… nor the one whose believers do not and cannot speak in tongues and so on, for he did not send us. Neither do we listen to the spirit, however holy he may seem, who condoned the recommendations of James the Younger as good, for our Jesus did not send him. But rather, as believers, disciples and elect of the Jesus Christ who was raised from the dead by the Holy Spirit as it is written, we are now here. He alone we honour with our work and wish to honour.

As such, it is with sincere regret and humility that we ask for forgiveness from all the believers and disciples of the other Jesus’ when we have argued with them and insulted them when all they were doing was following their Jesus, as our Jesus said, “…what is that to you? You must follow Me.”

So what is it to us if the believers and disciples of the Jesus who was born on the 24th December celebrate their teacher’s, saviour’s, whatever’s, birthday out of love, for love is not rude. We must not hinder them or spoil their celebration, but rejoice with them that their Jesus would bless them. What is it to us that there is a Jesus who permits his priests to be called ‘father’; just ensure you do not allow anyone to call you ‘father’ and you call no one ‘father’, and if you do, repent. What is it to us if the believers of the other Jesus cannot and do not speak in tongues, drive out demons, heal the sick, drink poison and pick up serpents without harming themselves… we should be gracious to them and drive out their demons because they cannot, and heal their sick if they cannot, and remove their poisons if they cannot, so that they may better follow their Jesus all the more. If they want to join us in following our Jesus, let them. If not, let them go. But always do to them and for them what you would have done to yourself, and do for their Jesus what you would want done to your Jesus. Do not insult their Jesus, for we do not want ours insulted. Do not call their Jesus false, as we do not want ours insulted. Help them to prove their Jesus true, as we want to prove our Jesus true. If their Jesus has promised to return, do not hinder them from bringing their Jesus back, as surely as we do not want to be hindered in bringing our Jesus back. For we know who our Jesus is… and we also know whom their Jesus’ are… and that is enough.

For our Jesus came full of grace and truth to bring salvation to the world – to every creature, mankind and creation – and revelation to those who are given to Him by His Father about Himself, His Father and those the Father has drawn. Jesus Christ, our Jesus Christ – the One who was born the Lamb of God at a time when shepherds watched their flocks in the fields, who does not permit His disciples to be called ‘father’, for they have the same Father as He who is in Heaven, whose believers can speak in tongues, drive out demons, heal the sick, drink poison and pick up serpents and not be harmed – is the One who sent us and it is for His honour alone we are to work.

So, elect, separate yourselves. Be holy as He is holy. Be sanctified because for you He has sanctified Himself… and know who is this Jesus Christ you have listened to and come to know that you may be His witnesses.
