Have you ever done something which God has said you should not? I have. Everyone has; that’s no secret. Apparently the first one ever to do that was condemned for his transgression, as it amounts to rebellion against one’s own Creator — not a good move.
But that first rebel is quick to accuse the rest of us to God, and demand that justice be done for our wrongdoing. He’s like the prosecutor from hell. And it’s no defence for us to say that everybody does wrong: this Accuser has been pointing out for ages that since everyone does wrong, everyone should be condemned. He has a point. It has been known right from the start that rebellion against our Creator incurs a severe penalty. At the end, we will have to face up to our own wrongdoing, and it’s really not looking good for any of us.
So, have you found a lawyer who is up to handling your leaky defence in the highest court in existence? I have. He promises he can get me off without any penalty — a full pardon!
But, you might ask, can I believe his promise? Yes, I can. I’ve checked his record, and he has kept every promise he has made — even seemingly impossible things like promising to get out of his own grave three days after dying. Doing that, along with everything else he did, showed everyone that he’s not just all talk. He delivers on his promises, no matter how whopping. But on top of that, God himself has backed up my Advocate’s claims with prophecies, signs and wonders to attest to his genuineness.
So I can recommend this legal counsel as the best Advocate you could ever hope to call upon for help with your most serious legal issue — namely, the fact that you have gone against what your Creator has said.
His card? No, I don’t have his card, but you can look him up in the Holy Pages. His name is Jesus Christ.
He is able to save completely those who draw near to God through him, because he always lives in order to intercede on their behalf.
And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous one
