What is Life?

It is Jesus Christ + Nothing Else

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

WHAT IS LIFE? LIFE IS KNOWING AND LIVING JESUS CHRIST! NOTHING ELSE! "...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." - John 10-10.



Man must come to understand that Jesus Christ is the breath of life, and that life is living Jesus Christ according to His written word. He is our ONLY Hope while we are yet alive on this earth. And, while we are alive, He is our blood in faith, our Living Water (John 4:10,11 & 13,14), keeping us on the straight (and narrow) road to eternal rest with Him. Our created purpose is to return to His presence in His heaven which was created for us. Our “free will” choice that we have made is final, and forever shall we be with Him IF we continue in the true Way of God, Jesus Christ.



Our life here on earth is but a short passing, as a vanishing vapor, having no value. “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” - James 4:14. Our life as a man/woman is like unto withering grass, “For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away.” - I Peter 1:24 but, in Jesus Christ we become ONE, as in the body of Christ, for all eternity. “And the world passeth away and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” - I John 2:17 - “Keep yourselves in the love the God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. - Jude 1:21



Many religions of men will never feed their people meat, nor can any church save anyone and get them to heaven. “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.” - Acts 17:24,25. The “religions of men” proclaim that the “fruit” is what man does for God: “how many people have you won to the Lord, how many Sundays and Wednesdays have you attended the church services in man-made buildings, how great was your so called “tithe” that was collected in your churches, how many good deeds have you accomplished in your lifetime?” Well, let me tell you my friends, these are all dead works, dead, dead “works of the flesh” which will kill all. There is absolutely nothing that we can do (works) to bring forth Christ into our life. He has already been brought forth. He has already shed His blood and was resurrected on our behalf, therefore, there is “NOTHING ELSE” that any church, pastor, minister, friend, whoever and whatever can do for us. It has been done by Jesus Christ and ONLY Jesus Christ. Our Spiritual growth is in the meat of the WORD, not in man’s ways, but living and walking according to the SPIRIT always. “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” - Gal.5:24-25



We will not leave this world (Satan’s world) without a battle. Be ye not carnal, always living for the flesh, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Romans 8:6) rather we must trust the Spirit of Christ to guide us through this life. If we speak of the things of the world, we are carnal and serve the devil. “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” - I John 4:5 Love not the world or the flesh of it.



We must walk in the Spirit of faith and truth by the WORD. The Holy Spirit will guide us in ALL ways - and we must listen to Him, trust Him and abide in Him - “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” - I John 2:6. The Word of God applies to every aspect of our daily life. If we can not find time for Jesus, He will not have time for us. If we are not looking for Him, then we have missed Him entirely. If we are not for Jesus, we are against Him. Our family is spiritual and of heaven - not of flesh or blood on this earth. No one can walk together unless they agree. There is only one body of Christ with Jesus as the "corner stone” and we, the body of Christ (Church), are one in Him, as Jesus is the very breath and heart beat of life itself. And, what has Jesus Christ done for us? “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will. To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” - Ephes. 1:4-7.



The “One World Religion” of Satan is the apostate system to come in the last days (it’s close, very close). Do not follow any supposed holy man or religion. The anti christs have been predicted by Jesus Himself - “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” - Matt. 24:29. Remember, through these false christs and false prophets, it is Satan who deceives, steals and leads the souls to hell.

We are in the last days, you can read about it, hear about it, see it, it’s on the TV, radio, in the newspapers, and of course in all the world’s leading magazines. If you are looking for His coming, and, all who are His should be looking, then study to show yourself approved, do not follow religions of the world. Many are being deceived by men of the flesh (“TV Preachers”, and “Lying Pulpit Preachers”) and their religion, which is not the way. Jesus of the WORD is the ONLY Way, it’s Jesus Christ plus nothing else.

Satan is the prince of this earth - and the entire world is under Satan’s control, but, just FOR NOW. Can you see evilness of his works through: Religion, Government, Educational Systems, and perhaps Friends, Family Members, Loved Ones? He is out there, most of all, in daily life. He comes in the form of “Religion”, “Wealth”, “Entertainment”, “Worldly Pleasures”, “Material Things” - “....and the whole world lieth in wickedness” (I John 5:19) Oh, yes, he is out to destroy souls, to take them to hell, where he will be going soon - “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” - Rev. 20:10 The day of the Lord is here people, may He have mercy on us all, for the hard times are here and the “Satan Conspiracy” is complete in “all of the above”. You must be HOT for Christ, a fanatic, and engrossed totally in Jesus Christ. If you know and follow Him, He will know you by the Word. “My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me:” - John 10:27.

This may be my last warning, for I have tried to warn all - Satan is loose in the world and sin runs wild - you can see it everywhere. We are being sold short by religions of men which is one of many of Satan’s tools used to deceive us. Satan knows that he has but a short time and his judgment is near. No one will need an attorney or holy man, and their religion will not be able to help them either, for we will soon give an account and cannot hide the truth - it shall be known. The Word of God reveals to us that the whole world will soon be judged. “...let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. he that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” - I John 3:7-8



We are in a daily battle! We must be equipped as a soldier of God, using His spiritual armour against the stronghold of Satan - for we cannot overcome the things of the world with our own wisdom and strength: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” - Ephesians 6:10-17

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” - Romans 3:10. We are all sinners saved by Grace, a gift from the Lord. Stand diligently in the truth of the Word, and you will be able to see through the deception of Satan, no longer being deceived by his false teachings, but seeing clearly that this evil world will soon be judged. Always remember, our works are not the way, but the truth of the Word, Jesus Christ, is the way, for it is Jesus Christ + nothing else.
