Growing up I was raised in a Judaeo-Christian church and I was taught and believed that Yahshua (Jesus) was the only way to Salvation--Eternal Life. I accepted it without question and had no reason to doubt it. But there came a time in my young adult life that I didn't want to just accept what I was taught without proving it for myself. So I asked my Heavenly Father to show me the truth. I had already started developing a personal relationship with Him so I knew He would answer my prayer. It was a process that took several years but He led me to the unequivocal truth.
To many a skeptic it seems utterly ridiculous that there is only one way to Eternal Life, Heaven and Salvation, and even more ridiculous that one man's blood sacrifice could save the whole world. This is because spiritual things are not based on human logic or reasoning. That may seem like a cop out or just a canned answer, but believe you me it's not.
Much of the process that Yahweh took me through happened during the time I lived in West Africa. Africa is a very spiritually active place. There are Supernatural wonders always happening in the Kingdom of Darkness (Satan's Kingdom) and in The Kingdom of Light--God's Kingdom. God took me through the process of beginning to know the difference of operation between the two Kingdoms. I experienced Spiritual attacks and then Deliverance from those spiritual attacks on my life. I learned that the spirit world is very real and I saw and experienced many Supernatural wonders I had not experienced before. I saw many demonic possesions and attacks on people and saw Men and Women of God deliver people from actual possesion and the effects of what the demonic world does to people, families and generations. The deliverance I saw always involved the name or the Blood of Yahshua. The Kingdom of darkness would shriek, scream in horror and be terrified of the name and Blood of Jesus. So I knew that this was definitely "A" way--but I still wanted to make sure that it was the ONLY way.
During this time I was developing a more and more intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father. I was hungry for the truth. I was blessed with access to so much information and I just drank in all I could, looking for the truth. I read and studied things from metaphysics, new age and African studies including African Spirituality. All of it sounded reasonable at first but one after the other I was able to see the flaws in it. I was seeing and experiencing the results of all these schools of thought unfolding right in front of me there in West Africa. Time and space does not permit me to even begin to share all of these experiences.
So let me begin by giving you some of the highlights of what I learned. The Bible is the best source to start with, it helps us to learn some things about our Creator and our relationship to him and how we are made. We are made in His image and His likeness, but what does that really mean? (See Genesis 1:26, 27)
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The Spirit realm was Created first and is more real than our limited physical realm. We are spiritual beings housed in a physical body so that we can live in this temporary physical realm. Our Creator is far greater than the physical universe. The universe is one of his many canvases that showcase His handiwork just like an artist's canvas--He can, at will roll up the universe just like a scroll and put it on a shelf. That is how awesome our Creator is. So if you think that God is confined to the essence of the Universe we are unknowingly confining Him to a limited box. As the Revelator Kat Kerr has shared from her many trips to Heaven In the Supernatural Spirit realm the laws are not confined to the time and space limitations that we experience on earth, more than one thing can occupy the same space and there are infinite dimensions within dimensions. Heaven is a supernatural realm. How awesome is that?!
So if we only think and perceive in the logical physical realm we can easily overlook the significance of the sacrifice of Yahshua our Deliverer and Redeemer.
Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
The Lord (Yahovah) our God(s) (Elohainoo) is One (Achad) Lord (Yahovah)
Elohim or Elohainoo (Triune God or Supreme God) is the word in the Bible used for God our Supreme Creator. (and Elohim said let Us) Elohim is the plural of El (Elohim=Gods plural, El=God singular). We are made after His likeness and we function and operate like Him in the male and in the female (the male man and the female man/mankind). In essence we are His offspring--His children. He is The Father and He also has two other entities/beings that came out of Him The Son (a separate being) and The Holy Spirit (also a separate being). They exist and operate as separate beings in total harmony as one (achad-one,UNITED, in perfect harmony) together with the Father and they can also step inside of Him (literally!)

Remember beings and things can occupy the same space at any given time in the supernatural spirit realm. We as His children were little spirits living a real life inside of Him before we came to live on this planet earth. We had friends, we played together we ate, we swam in the rivers, played on the mountains etc., etc. There is a whole literal massive infinite world inside of our Heavenly Father where all of us (the souls that live on the earth now and those who lived before us) existed.
We also are made just like Elohim. Our Eternal Spirit is like the Father. He is Spirit,
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
our Eternal Soul (layered finite transparent replicas of us attached to our spirit) is like the Holy Spirit who has infinite layers of His whole self (omnipotent and omniscient), and our physical flesh body like the Son (Jesus) who also has a Glorified flesh body (eternal flesh that does not decay) and a soul and a spirit.
Our spirit is like the Father, our soul is like the Holy Spirit, and we have a body of flesh which is like the Son (Yahshua) who is the embodiment of all three. We are also supposed to mature into a mature son and daughter of God just like Yahshua (Jesus) who has gone through and completed the entire process. This was what the first Adam placed on this earth was supposed to do. More on this later.
Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Rom 8:19 Everything that God made is waiting with excitement for the time when he will show the world who his children are. The whole world wants very much for that to happen.
From the Easy To Read Translation of the Bible
Satan our adversary--the one who hates God and thus hates anything to do with Him and Us God's children. He hates us and does not want us to know who we are. He wants us to experience the same agonizing Eternal fate He has. We have been given free will to choose Eternal Life and all that comes with it. When we learn who we are and begin to operate in the Power and Authority over the kingdom of darkness, given to us through the Blood covenant of Yahshua/Jesus the Messiah and Deliverer we are a real threat to Satan and his kingdom. He is deathly afraid of that. So he has done everything possible to deceive us and take us away from our destiny (Eternal Life) through any means possible. Over thousands of years he has created multiple layers of deception that only the wisdom of God can help us unravel.
The Bible describes his existence before he turned into the enemy of God. He used to walk on the coals of fire on the mountain of God, which is describing how he used to step inside of our Heavenly Father and walk around inside of God The Father before He turned into the enemy of God and was cast out of Heaven.
Eze 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Eze 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Satan formerly known as Lucifer was the spiritual leader over Tyrus. The physical ruler of Tyrus earlier in the chapter was referred to as the Prince of Tyrus. Satan also had access to the inside of God the Father before he was cast out of heaven. The Holy Mountain of God and the stones of fire (the heart of God) are inside the Father. So of course he knows who we are, because we existed and lived inside The Father as conscious little spirits before we were born on earth.
We have been placed on this earth to grow and mature as the literal children of God. We are the gods on this earth, not any other beings past or present or any Thing else. Any other beings past or present are not worthy of worship except the triune God. The angels of heaven that come down to earth or interact with us in any way would never let us worship them in any way. Only Satan and his angels of the kingdom of darkness and demons want us to treat them and worship them as gods. No being or angel in the Kingdom of God/Heaven/Light worships any other beings except the Supreme God (Elohim).
So now that we have an introduced the subject what does this have to do with Yahshua (Jesus) being the only way to Heaven and Eternal Life?
What Is Eternal Life?
