HE PRAYS FOR US
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5-6 NIV
There are many doctrines in religious systems of this world which doubt if Jesus is the only way to the Father. They say there have to be many way ways to the Father; and God cannot be too selfish to choose only Jesus to be the way to Him.
There is another doctrine that teaches that some people who were believed to be saints; i.e. they lived a holy life according to their religious standard, can pray for them before the Father after they die. So they have a long list of names of the people who they believe they were saints; and they daily ask them to pray for them before the God of heaven and earth.
All these claims don't have any Scriptural evidences to prove that they are true; and hence they remain as beliefs which are against the word of God. The Bible teaches us that there is only one God and only one intercessor between God and mankind; the man Christ Jesus who gave His life for all mankind.
This morning, I want you to know that Jesus is the only one who prays for us before the Father. He prays that we may keep away from sin; He prays that we may progress in holiness and He pray that one day we may inherit the kingdom of God. (John 17:15, 17, 24)
I want to ask you to stop concentrating listening to many false doctrines which are against the word of God. Stop asking saints to pray for you, and celebrating the dead; because that is not in the Bible. Learn to do things which are in the Bible. That's why you need to read your Bible that you may understand how you supposed to live; and which things are true according to the Scriptures.
