Neither is there salvation in any other
          Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.   Acts 4:12
          This name is JESUS CHRIST. There is salvation in none other. Except through Jesus Christ no man can be saved. O the lie, the lie, the soul-destroying lie, that is now preached from so many pulpits and proclaimed by so many "ministers of the Gospel" who deny that Christ is the only Saviour, claiming that He is merely one among many, and that the Christian religion is not the only true religion, but only more perfect, possibly, than others. Let us here loudly and firmly testify with Scripture that there is salvation in none other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved than the name of JESUS CHRIST alone. "Jesus "means Saviour. And this name was given to Him of whom we speak because He is the only Saviour of all mankind. (Matt. 1:21) And "Christ," or "Messiah," means The Anointed. Anointment was customary in the Old Testament when kings and high priests, and perhaps also the prophets of Israel, were installed in their office. This name was given to Him of whom we speak because He was ordained by God to be our only Saviour, our true Prophet, High Priest, and King. (Ps. 2:6) And He is anointed with the Holy Spirit without measure. (Ps. 45:7; Acts 10:38) Always seek Jesus Christ, always and ever better learn to know Jesus Christ, always believe in Jesus Christ, always follow Jesus Christ, always bear witness of Jesus Christ before all men. There is salvation in no other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.
          PRAYER: - Lord Jesus, You are the only Saviour of all mankind, and beside You there is no salvation. Help, O help me to believe in You, and to cling to You, and not to be torn from You by the great and powerful lie which Your adversary and mine disseminates on earth. You only Saviour, save me through faith in You. Amen.
