Who is Jesus Christ:
Jesus Christ is God who created the Universe by the word of his mouth.

He came in the flesh through the body of a Virgin to to save humans from their sins, in a form that had nothing to be desired, he was not the handsome, attractive blue eyed person depicted in pictures, Isaiah 53:2. Christ came to fulfil the prophecy of Isaiah 9:6-7, and Matthew 1:23. He came to shine the light of righteousness to show the unrighteousness of this world, and to be the interceder between man and God after shouldering the sins of this world in his baptism and death on the cross to give the remission of sins to believers. He came to give us access into the Kingdom of Heaven through faith in his baptism for the remission of sins from the human Soul, and the blood of the cross for us to avoid the fiery hell. He came to shine the light of Salvation to this World. He was condemned on the cross, thereby blotting out all the sins of the world.

Is Jesus God?:

He is God for he created this very world with the word of his mouth, He created the Universe; John 1:3, "All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made." He created this world and all the vegetations. He created the Solar system, Genesis 1:3-15. Jesus was fundamentally God who created all things in the beginning.
He came to save all sinners from this world, he came to shine the true life of Salvation to all sinners to save all who believe; John 1:9-12,"That was the true light, which lighted every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."

The Son of God came to blot out all the sins we have inherited from Adam, the father of mankind, and to drive away darkness from this world. His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father.

Why Did People Not Receive Jesus Into Their Hearts:

Because Jesus came as a lowly man and saved sinners from their sins.
Because they did not put away their faith and human understanding, and thoughts.
They did not realize God created them.
They did not know that they were bound to hell, not knowing they were sinners from their very births.
They did not know Jesus was the Saviour.
They were ignorant of the truth.
They did not recognize the Saviour who is God himself.
They did not respond to the gospel of the water and the Spirit.
They did not know he is the truth and the way.
Jesus was sent for those who were ill-treated, whose lives were lowly, those tormented by sins, who want to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, and to be clothed in the grace of God, hence he was born in a Manger. The people of Israel did not recognize him as God and the Messiah because he came in the form of a man, nor realize he was the Son of God, the creator of the Universe and everything in it. Hence they did not receive him, even now. The world still do not know him as creator and Saviour who has saved all mankind from their sins.

Isaiah 59:16 tells us because of the sins of mankind, when God looked down upon man from heaven, he saw no man, and there was no intercesor because the sins of man had erected a wall of partition to seperate man from him. So he came down in Jesus christ and took our sins with his baptism, and was crucified to shed his blood because he bore the condemnation for our sins, thereby saving those who believe from all their sins.

Inspite of the lack of righteousness by mankind; our insufficiencies and weaknesses and the many sins we have committed, if we realize that Jesus fulfilled all the righteousness by taking all our sins with his baptism and shedding his blood on the cross; If we accept this truth into our hearts, we can all be saved from all our sins.
So there is only one Saviour in this world, and this Saviour is only Jesus. The name of Jesus itself means "He who will save his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21).

What can we do to enter Heaven? Can we enter Heaven by doing good deeds?
the answer is "No"
In this world we cannot stop sinning.
People cannot enter Heaven if they have sin, however tiny that sin may be.
No one can enter Heaven by his/her power.
We can only enter into Heaven by believing in the gospel of the water and the Spirit given by Jesus. "For he shall save his people from there sins (Matthew 1:21)

God made us and when we fell into sins, He became a man and came to this earth and cleansed our sins; This man is none other than Jesus who came, and was baptised to take our sins and died on the cross.
