Jesus the only Redeemer
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.
Hypothetically if God is head and mankind is the body then Jesus is the neck. The neck is considered part of the head as well as it extents into the body for it is part of the backbone.
Lord Jesus Christ is God who became man, He is not death but as resurrected and is alive. By His sacrifice as man He helped us receive forgiveness and turned away the wrath of God on us. It is His Spirit Who guides us and enforces us to receive our eternal salvation.
People like me can pray for you but no one alive or death can redeem you, it is only Jesus Christ who is the eternal Redeemer.
Jesus alone is the way and there is no other way for us to be saved. Being alive as a brother I can guide you according to the Word and encourage you by my actions and words. But if I die I am of no use to you, for I will sleep until the Day of Judgment to come before the Lord Jesus Christ and then will enter the (upper) Heavens. What maximum help I will be to you is by my testimony; the good the Lord has done to and through me, and the mistake I have made, overcome and being victim of.
Where ever I teach the Word of God I tell the people do not look at me for there are changes that I may fall and if you look up unto me then you too will fall. Therefore always look only up to Jesus, Who is the perfect example and there is no other in the whole Bible who has been a perfect example. Even the heroes in the Bible from Noah, Job, Abraham, Moses, David, Jeremiah, Daniel, Elijah, Eliza, Isaiah, Mary, Peter, Paul, John, Thomas etc. all have fallen either one time or the other. Everyone's weakness has been exposed in the Bible, also the goodness they have done and the fight they have put up to overcome the sinful nature is testimony in the Bible for us.
Let us take their testimony to help us from doing the same mistakes, but if we need to be perfect let us not look up to them, we need to look only at Jesus Christ the perfect man.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You sent your Son as man Jesus, so that He can be lifted up for us to follow. He lived on earth with all the weakness as any other man but did not fall unto any of them. He became the perfect example for all of us. By His sacrifice He redeemed us from our sins and by His Spirit we receive eternal life. Lord Jesus Christ your death and resurrection has given us a new hope and we believe we will surely be with You in Heaven for eternity...
This prayer we make in faith, in your precious Name, Amen.

17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ:
18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.
19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
