There Is No Other God Besides Me
There Is No Other God Besides Me
There is no other God besides Me,
A righteous God and a Savior.
There is none except Me.
Over the years, every once in awhile, there always comes someone proclaiming to be the Savior of the world. They will claim that no one can enter heaven without their permission. They claim that only they have the truths of God. They will make false prophecies galore, and claim to have been given authority by God Almighty. They also claim to have had many visions of various sorts.
Throughout the Bible, God’s word, the LORD often declares that He is the one-and-only God and Savior. A few examples could include:
I, even I, am the LORD,
And there is no savior besides Me.
You were not to know any god except Me,
For there is no savior besides Me.
2 Peter 1:1
To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ…….
To the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
These references point to Jesus Christ as our Lord, God, and Savior. So, how can we really be sure? The Old Testament contains many prophecies of the Savior. They describe Jesus’ birth, teachings, healings, sufferings, death, and resurrection. None of the self-proclaimed saviors have been the fulfillment of any of these Old Testament prophecies. Jesus has been the exact fulfillment of all of them — to the last detail. That is why Psalm 146:3-5 declares,
Do not trust in princes,
In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.
His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;
In that very day his thoughts perish.
How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the LORD his God.
Because Jesus is the perfect fulfillment of so many Old Testament prophecies of the Savior, we can know that He surely is God, our Savior. All the other self-proclaimed saviors are mere “mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.” They die the death of mere men — and perish forever.
But, when the apostle Peter witnessed to all the rulers and elders of the people, he declared about Jesus in Acts 4:12,
And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
If we honestly want to be saved and live eternally in heaven, we need to check out everything the Bible says about the Savior — realizing that the Old Testament was written hundreds and thousands of years before Jesus was born. That makes all those prophecies impossible to fulfill by mere men — but totally possible by God Almighty.
Glad to know that only Jesus is the true Savior, we say, “Hallelujah! LORD, thank You for Your marvelous fulfillments of prophecies of our real Savior, Jesus.”

Pray for our country.
The LORD made this day, let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
