 Topic : Who Is Jesus Christ? Part I

For reading and meditation: John 1:29-51

 *Thought* : Man, Woman, don't blindly follow blind leadership or else both of you will fall to the ditch and to lost forever.

 *Memory Verse* : John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Many religious groups as well as sense-ruled scholars who have a very obscure thinking about the Man Jesus, try to reduce Him to a 

second position other than the place Jehovah has given Him in the bible. 

These natural men, hardly know how they came into existence, even repudiate God's declaration of how life came into being. They believe and make millions in the world to believe in Names, Things and Places, seeking blindly to be blessed by God here on earth and hoping to go to Heaven when they die. Hear what God said of our Lord Jesus 

Christ in Matt. 17:5, and it says "While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him".

From the above text, God has place Jesus Christ in the position of Sonship and this demands that everyone here on earth recognise this basic fact about who Jesus is to God.

Though he came as a flesh he was yet not of the flesh but of the above and this was why  any religion that gives Jesus a lower place cannot be right. The Bible is emphatic that he is God manifested in the flesh. God the Father 

sent Jesus to the world to be the Saviour of the World (Matt. 1:21, Acts 4:12). Compare these to the statement made by Jehovah Himself in Isaiah 43:11. “I, even I, am the Lord: and beside me there is no Saviour”. Jehovah is the Saviour. The oneness of Jehovah and Jesus cannot be contested (John 10:30).

The claim that God is triune originated from pagan philosophy is proof that human reasoning is too weak and ineffective when it comes to comprehending our great and wonderful God (1Cor. 1:21). Sometimes Jesus is addressed as God by God the Father (Heb. 1:8). 

Note that the pagan idolatry involving a triad of gods is simply Satan's counterfeit of the one true God (Rev. 16:13).

 Several pitfalls confront us when we interpret the Holy Scriptures. We tend to substitute human leadership and reasoning for a personal study of the word of God. This is because of the lack of understanding of the basic laws of Bible interpretation. These laws are found in 2Peter 1:20 and John 5:39. For example in studying the bible all relevant passages that speak on the same topic must be carefully studied before any conclusion can be drawn. And unless we have the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we cannot even discover the thoughts of God from His word since the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God because they are spiritually discerned.

The Holy Spirit lives in every true born again child of God, so if we yield to the Lord, He will teach us His truth. 

Attractive books with reasonable arguments, though not conveying the truth of God abound. We must search the Scriptures 

personally with prayer and God will reveal Himself and His truth to us.

Colossians 1:15 and Rev. 3:14 referred to Jesus as a created being is often misinterpreted to prove that Jesus is a created being. 

However, nowhere in the Bible is Jesus said to be created by God. The original Greek word for “First Born”, and beginning mean first in Rank, excluding any reference to time or origin (Micah 5:2). They merely convey Jesus as having the highest position and a name above all in the universe (Phil. 2:9-11, Eph. 1:21). After voluntarily humbling Himself to 

death by crucifixion (Heb. 2:9). Father God saw to it that Jesus deserves to be exalted and glorified. May we do the same in our hearts in Jesus Name, Amen.

 *Assignment* : Is Jesus Christ of the flesh even though he was manifested in it? Identify two Bible reference to back up your answers.

 Prayer Point: Father, empower me to know who "He" Jesus, really is. Amen.
