MEDIATOR: ONLY ONE!
The only one qualified to stand between God and man is Jesus. Anyone who claims to mediate between you and God, other than Jesus Christ, is a usurper, a false teacher. There is ONLY ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN … and He is JESUS.
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.”
(I Timothy 2:5) “And for this reason, Christ is the mediator
of a new covenant.” (Heb 9:15a) No preacher, priest, pope, bishop, rabbi, Mary or anyone else, no matter how holy they may claim to be, can take the place of Jesus as a mediator. That place is reserved for Jesus Christ alone. The Bible nowhere states we are to confess our sins to any special person, who will then tell us what penance is required to be forgiven. Rather notice: “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16 NIV).
Jesus Christ is the perfect Mediator because he is both
“the Son of God” and also
“the Son of Man.” He was in the beginning with God, and He was God. (John 1:1-3,14) Ask for Bible chart giving 3 ages of Bible history, with Jesus as the sole mediator in this age, the New Covenant period.
