What does your god wear?

     "There's only one God Ma'am and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that!" -- Captain America from the Avengers movie

    It's odd that such a simple statement could be so packed with meaning in this day and age, especially coming from a comic book movie. We live in an age when so many religions are merely claim to be Christian including some that are actually regarded by the mainstream to be Churches. Churches that are presenting a "Jesus" that bares no resemblance to the Jesus of the Bible and yet people flock to these so called "churches" Many of the offending churches are some of the largest in the country or even the world! I'm pointed to a very applicable verse.

For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear 2Timothy 4:3

    We are living in these times. Churches preach a Jesus of their own imagination to bring in multitudes of people (and piles of cash). So we all must ask our selves..."What does my Jesus wear" and more importantly What does he do and what is he going to do?

Then I saw #heaven opened, and behold, #a white horse! The one sitting on it is called #Faithful and True, and #in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12#His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are #many diadems, and he has #a name written that no one knows but himself. 13He is clothed in #a robe dipped in# blood, and the name by which he is called is #The Word of God. 14And the armies of heaven, #arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, #were following him on white horses. 15#From his mouth comes a sharp sword #with which to strike down the nations, and #he will rule them with a rod of iron. #He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh #he has a name written, #King of kings and Lord of lords.  Rev 19 11-16

Has your Jesus sacrificed himself to atone for sin? Is your Jesus returning to judge the living and the dead and rule for ever? Is your Jesus the Son of God that existed from all eternity yet humbled himself to become man? Did he rise to defeat sin, Satan and Death? If not it sounds like this is the Jesus you need!

5For #Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that #the person who does the commandments shall live by them. 6But #the righteousness based on faith says, #"Do not say in your heart, "Who will ascend into heaven?"" (that is, to bring Christ down) 7or ""Who will descend into the #abyss?"" (that is, #to bring Christ up from the dead). 8But what does it say? #"The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9because, if #you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and #believe in your heart #that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved Romans 8:5-10
