No Other Name
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)
What sends someone to hell instead of heaven? Many people think it's the sum of their good or bad deeds that determines their eternal future in paradise or punishment. But that’s not what the Bible says. A man’s wrongdoings are not what will keep him out of heaven. Where he will spend eternity is based on only one thing: whether or not he receives the One who paid the price for his sin – that is Jesus.
Acts 4:12 tells us that salvation is not found in the name of good deeds or giving a certain amount of money or knowing the right people. Salvation is only fulfilled by accepting and receiving Jesus.
Sin keeps people in bondage, but the price has been paid for every sin you have done, or you will do in this life. The slave market of sin that Satan had upon us has been loosed, and you can now walk out of Satan's stronghold and walk into freedom and eternal life.
Salvation is about getting into heaven, but it’s also much more. It's about heaven's way being done here on earth. Healing, protection, and prosperity are all connected to the salvation Jesus provided. And make no mistake about it - there is only one way to salvation.
The only way to eternal life is through Jesus Christ. Only through Him can you be saved, not by Mohammed, not by Sun Myung Moon, not by Hare Krishna - I don’t care who else. There is only One who was qualified to carry your sin. Only One was born sinless—only One who came through the Virgin Mary. Only One came from the Father and emptied Himself of everything. Only Jesus, and if you receive Him, then you receive His sacrifice and walk in the eternal life His salvation provided.
Practical Application – What area are you dealing with that is not lined up with heaven's way of doing things? Are you sick, broke, or hurting? Tell the devil to let go of your life because you have received salvation through Jesus!
