No one other than JESUS CHRIST
John 1:29 - The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Presume it is my birthday and you love me very, very much and you enchase all you savings and bring me the most precious thing wrapped in a beautiful gift wrapping paper. And when you give me this gift I open the gift keep the gift wrapping paper and throw away the gift!
How is this going to make you feel?
Understand God (Son of God) put all at risk when He came as man Jesus. He humbled Himself from God to mere man. If you really want to know the status of God compared to man is in the words of Job and Isaiah, where God calls man a worm, an insect.
Jesus was 100 percent man and had Jesus been defiled even with a small minute sin, the Kingdom of God would have lost everything.
Jesus is the sacrifice which God paid for our sins and there is no other way in which we receive our salvation. It is only by His Spirit that we will enter the Kingdom of Heaven and there is no other way.
Are you going to value the gift or throw the gift and keep the gift wrapping paper? Which is more precious to you?
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You put the most precious to You are risk when You allowed your begotten Son to come as man Jesus, to show us the way and be a sacrifice for our sins. By his sacrifice not only He washed away our sins, but by his Spirit He removes the sinful nature in us; thus making us your sons. Lord, have mercy on your people who in their foolishness and hardness of their hearts have thrown away the precious gift and are holding on to the gift wrapping paper...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
