The big question for all those who come to Jesus must ask is ... Can you be saved without the blood of Jesus the Messiah? Should anyone who wants to receive salvation from His blood sacrifice use any other means to do so? The cross is a wooden or medal object that has no blood and it takes as noted in scriptures blood to cover sins.
Yes it is an absolute fact from God that blood has to be shed for the remission of sins and is why God killed an animal and covered Adam and Eve with the skins after they disobeyed and the reason Cain’s sacrifice was rejected was because he did not obey this very command and presented a sacrifice of fruits and vegetables while his brother Able presented a righteous sacrifice of blood. Also during the Old Covenant period the blood of bulls and goats without blemish was offered and all others were rejected and then the last eternal blood sacrifice of the Lamb of God was sent by the Holy Father in heaven.
So why do millions of people claiming to follow Jesus the Messiah choose to look to a wooden or medal object that has no blood to offer? They truly need to get it right lest they fall for a false Messiah thus not being able to receive true salvation. Satan knows he can't stop the blood sacrifice of the Messiah from giving salvation to those that will accept it so he has done the next best thing and that is to bring into the Christian religion a false Christ and false gods for the people to worship.
And as recorded in Habakkuk 2:18-19: "What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it, the molded image, a teacher of lies, that the maker of its mold should trust in it, to make mute idols? Woe to him who says to wood, 'Awake!' To silent stone, 'Arise! It shall teach!' Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, yet in it there is no breath at all.”
There are many places where God warns about Idolatry and the warning that is very strong is yet future. Who will take heed and repent? We find recorded in Rev 9:20 this future event. “But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.”
So why is it that people pray to the old pagan cross that is the symbol of Tammuz? I know many just can't see it but I pray that someday they will. One reader liked the cross and stated she just read that Jesus "led captivity captive!" and I stated to her that is correct but the cross did not "led captivity captive!" Notice that Satan has been successful in replacing Jesus the Messiah with the cross?
We find scripture that state "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' Matt 7:22-23.
The truth is that the cross has been used both as a religious symbol and as an ornament from the dawn of man's civilization. Various objects dating from periods long before the Christian era, have been found through archaeological discoveries, marked with crosses of different designs in almost every part of the old world.
The cross symbol was found in Scandanavia: The Tau cross symbolized the hammer of the God Thor. In Hinduism, the vertical shaft represents the higher, celestial states of being; the horizontal bar represents the lower, earthly states.
The honest bible researcher will acknowledge that the New Testament scripture that refers to the cross is a mistranslation. I looked up the word "cross" in William Tyndale's original writings and he spells it "Crosse" but still we know that the Greek word he should have translated from is "Stauros" and should be translated as "Stake" and is translated correctly in the Aramaic bible.
Our research has revealed that the true word for cross is "crux" and came from Latin. It is interesting to note that this Greek word "Crux" cannot be found in the original New Testament at all, but the word "Stauros" which translates as "Stake" is found in every place where Tyndale used the word Cross. The reason Tyndale used the word "Cross is because he was a product of his Catholic teaching.
We found that there are four basic types of representations of the cross: The crux quadrata, or Greek cross, with four equal arms; The crux immissa, or Latin cross, whose base stem is longer than the other three arms; The crux commissa, in the form of the Greek letter tau, sometimes called St. Anthony's cross; and crux decussata, named from the Roman decussis, or symbol of the numeral ten.
I know many want to serve the true creator God and are deceived into believing many false things. Ask yourself this question... Do you want to follow what came from the great false Church that is called the Catholic Church who worships a man that they call the Most Holy Father?
It is not easy to change but that is what Jesus the Messiah want's all to do so if you truly want to find Him and walk with the real savior check out this true research and study to become approved.
It is the responsibility of those that know this truth to warn, (Not convert) those that God will grant understanding. Beware! If we don’t take action to warn as long as we can then their blood is on our hands!
After I have convinced some that the Cross is a Pagan symbol they then state that they may have it in their church and around their neck BUT THEY DO NOT WORSHIP IT! Is this true?
