Who Is This Jesus?
Wednesday, September 24, 2008 • Posted September 23, 2008

This is the most important question in the world for you to answer. Your eternal destiny depends on it. So you want to get this question right, don’t you? There are many opinions out there about who Jesus is. Some say He was a “great moral teacher“. Some say He was a “community organizer”. Some say He was an angel; or just a man; or some created being. Others say he was a lunatic; a deceiver; a liar. Some say He was an anti-establishment revolutionary; others say He was just confused. However, opinions are like toes: Everybody usually has a few - and sometimes they stink. So how do you find out the truth? How are you supposed to learn who Jesus really is? The answer is simple: read The Book that God wrote (2Tim 3:16). Are you ready to find out who Jesus is? Let’s get into God’s Word.

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us….. 1Ti 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh…. Act 20:28 ….feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever…... Mat 1:23 (Isa 7:14) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one. Exo 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Joh 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him (Jesus), My Lord and my God. 1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Mic 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Col 1:14-17 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: Gen 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

Isa 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book… Rev 1:17-18 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Rev 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; Rev 22:12-13 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Who is Jesus? He is God. One day you will bow before Him, and call Him Lord. All of the things you think are so important right now, aren’t going to mean a hill of beans on your death bed; or in a million years. But who you believe Jesus is, and what you do about it while your here; that will mean everything. Call on Jesus today. If you are not saved, do not waste another minute (Jn 14:6, Rom 10:9-10, Acts 2:38, Jn 3:3 &16, 2Cor 5:17-6:2). Until next time, rejoice in The Lord!
