Who is the Real Jesus?


The world is becoming overwhelmed with people preaching the gospel and proclaiming Jesus as their Lord. There are countless establishments being built across the globe to glorify God and to bring Christians into the fold. Yet, instead of the global Christians uniting in thought and heart toward God, there is a great division among them. Why? It’s because they all teach a different doctrine, a different gospel, and a different Jesus.

So, Who is the real Jesus?

A new Christian looking for a church can easily become drawn into the wrong fold when their personal needs or desires are more of a priority than knowing God. We are surrounded with churches today that preach a false God – a false Jesus – a false gospel – and their congregations are growing!

The desire for fame and riches are to blame for the many false preachers that flood the television networks and the Christian book stores. These self-appointed leaders have taken scriptures out of context and turned the message of the gospel into a roadshow for Christians to become wealthy and carefree. This “prosperity gospel” is leading people along the broad path that leads to hell.

People who don’t know the Lord, but who want to be “Christians”, often search for a church that meets their needs and their desires. They join and believe that they are God’s children because they are faithful to their church and to the doctrine preached. Afterall, if the pastor is preaching this message then it must be what God wants. And then when the message becomes one that offends their personal lifestyle they leave and search for another church.

The Bible warns us of these types of Christians in 2 Timothy 4:3. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”

In 2 Timothy 2:15  we’re told to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  We need to study the Bible and learn who God is, who Jesus is, and what the big picture of creation is about. We need to put our own thoughts and desires aside and study earnestly with a pure heart and then we’ll see the truth of the gospel.

But where can we go to find this? We realize that there are many versions of the Bible and some make the message very clear, but on the whole of things it can be overwhelming when we don’t know where to begin and when we don’t understand the history behind many of the scriptures.

Rev. Rich Vermillion, a certified minister of the gospel and faithful servant of the Lord, has put together a teaching series called, The Fundamentals of The Real Gospel. He has spent a lot of time in prayer and preparation to create a teaching series that brings out the complete and yet simple truth of the gospel of Christ. He has researched the original scriptures and studied the culture and the history of when they were made so that there can be no misunderstanding of the meaning of its content.

The teaching follows the Bible from Old Testament to the New and elaborates on who Jesus is, what was accomplished at the cross, and who we are in Christ. We learn what we can expect from God as His children and what our responsibility is toward Him and toward other Christians and non-Christians.

He clarifies the difference between the REAL gospel and the false teachings that are destroying Christians, and he brings to light some of the household names of television evangelists and preachers who proclaim a false gospel. Rev. Vermillion relates everything and brings all his findings back to the Word of God, to the scriptures that warn us of these false prophets and teachers.

This is not a series that’s for sale for personal gain. This entire series of mp3’s is FREE to whoever wants to download it so they can know the REAL GOSPEL. We can listen to them, copy them, send them to friends and family, and share them with everyone we know. Jesus paid for this message on the cross and so there is no further cost. And so, there is no reason for anyone to not be able to learn the truth about the real gospel of Jesus because they are free by clicking here.

We’re living in a time when the truth about Jesus is being ignored and the greed and self-righteousness of ungodly men and women are influencing and controlling the hearts and minds of millions of Christians. We can’t sit back any longer and just assume that our relationship with God is good or that our future with Him even exists. We need to study this for ourselves and learn the truth.

Isaiah 53:5 says Jesus loves us so much that He hung on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins, healed our bodies, and brought us back to our Heavenly Father. Then He prepared a home for us in Heaven so that we could live with Him forever. Our life here on earth is not about gaining riches. It’s not about fame or power. It’s not about us living a carefree life without problems – or without sin. Life for us on this earth is our opportunity to know Jesus, to accept Him and to live the life that He has provided for us.

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” …1 Corinthians 2:12

  1. Thank you, Ronnie, for your honest words. They are so very true. I must say that I and my family are blessed to belong to a church with a preacher who does not bend the way of the world. He strictly sticks to teaching the Gospel of Jesus without going to the right or the left. Our church is not a huge church, and we have had people come and be offended by the truths straight from the Bible. We believe that if we give on one doctrine to please someone or just to keep them in the fold, we would eventually give on others and that is what has happened to many of today’s churches. Ones like ours are very few indeed. God Bless You!

  2. I love the truths of God. Like these scriptures. They are all telling.

    1st John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    1st John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    1st John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

    1st John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    I love Gods Commandments dont you?

  3. Ronnie, you are so very, very right. The Statler Bros. had a song with these lines. “Use the Bible as a rule book and I’m sure you’ll find, Jesus is the answer every time.” The Bible is my main source of information about Jesus, God and eternity.

    • Thanks for your comment, Ruth Ann. I’m glad that you agree. If you haven’t already listened to one of the sessions in this teaching, you should try it. It’s powerful teaching – and ALL right on with the Bible, plus there’s a lot of history and explainations that I found really informative – things that I didn’t know and that explain the questions I had about some passages. Have a great day, Ruth Ann.
