John 3:16 is straightforward but the disguised messengers of light of Satan are determined to twist the verse to get us to miss the mark of our salvation because it is necessary that we confess with our mouth who Jesus is and that He resurrected to be saved (Romans 10:9-11).
It is a trivial fact for many that Jesus was risen. But we read that the soldiers who were guarding the tomb of Jesus were paid money to spread the fake news that His disciples stole His body while they fell asleep. A lie about the truth of Jesus just does not fade away and disappear so that the fact, for example, that He was risen becomes an acceptable truth by all. It is remarkable that we can accept that the Haitians did gain their independence in 1804 even a billion years from now because so History says and, yet, that anyone can reject with certainty the fact that Jesus was risen or that He ever existed.
It is a trivial fact for many that Jesus was risen. Yet, when was He risen? Was it according to when Jesus predicted it to happen or when men teach that it took place? The resurrection day, believe or not, is important for our salvation simply because if any man teaches a resurrection timing other than the timing that Jesus predicted, it turns out that holding, teaching, or following such doctrine of resurrection over the timing of Jesus renders our worship vain, worthless according to Mark 7:7.
Also, if we know exactly on what day Jesus was risen, did Jesus command us to remember His resurrection day or can we decide on our own to remember the day of resurrection to celebrate it? If we do, what can be wrong with such a noble endeavor in honor of Jesus? Mark 7:7. We may not. Mark 7:7.
Now, what does it mean in Romans 10:9-11 to confess 'THAT Lord Jesus', according to the Greek and not to confess 'Lord Jesus' according to the English translations? In either case, what does it mean to confess that Lord Jesus or to confess Lord Jesus? Keep in mind that Jesus was killed because He demonstrated by deeds and sings that He is YHWH God King of Israel.
To the other group, Satan teaches them that Jesus was killed because He was accused falsely to be YHWH God not that Jesus ever demonstrated or said that He is YHWH God. Do you accept what Jesus says or what the agents disguised as messengers of light teach?
All the preceding relates to belief in jesus to be saved or to belief in the fake theology or teaching of men (Satan) to be damned.
If Jesus was falsely accused to be YHWH as the agents of Satan teach, does that make Jesus to be Archangel Michael or Angel of YHWH? Remember, making Jesus an Angel or YHWH God is important because we must believe in Jesus or in what He says to be saved.
Who is the God who sends (apostles) Jesus? Did we know Him? Is YHWH God the Father of Jesus as the agents of Satan are teaching?
Romans 10:9 CESAIRE
(9) that if ever you will confess the statement in the mouth of you that YHWH (LORD) is YHOSHUA (Jesus) and you will believe in the heart of you that the God him raises out of deads, you will be saved. (Luke 2:11).
Romans 10:9-11 ASV
(9) because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
(10) for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
(11) For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be put to shame (Isaiah 28:16).
John 3:16 ASV
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.
