“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
Marginal Reading: i.e. Saviour.
Friends, when I say: "Jesus", please understand that I am talking about my Saviour and respect me for my faith in Him.
Christ is not divided! Our Messiah will respond those who call upon Him - no matter which name we use. Most of the people who now prefer the Hebrew names were delivered from the power of Satan even though they used the name "Jesus".
Let us not allow phonetics to be the means of dividing us into opposing camps. It is true that most of modern Christianity is in apostasy --but not all Christians are reprobate.
Never forget that the Messiah said this of Judaism:
Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Then in 70 A.D., Judaism was completely destroyed. Judaism has no temple, no altar, and no sacrifice the Almighty will accept!
Primitive Christianity was comprised of Jews and Gentiles who, through faith, were grafted into the Israel of God. Those dear people loved one another so much their testimony turned the world upside down. Let us consider this prayer of Jesus and follow their lofty and noble example:
John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
