Jesus: an Eternal Revelation
Jesus Christ is God and the Son of God
Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty.
And, Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
And, He is infinitely, eternally more. Amen!
The following is impossible to put into human words, but it is an attempt:
The revelation of the only true God, the great God Jehovah, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is certainly the most important revelation in the universe.
Within that revelation, the revelation of Jesus Christ is also the most important revelation in the universe.
A person’s eternal destiny depends on their response to the only true God’s offer of Himself through Jesus Christ.
God has offered the Lord Jesus to every person.
It is the greatest and only offer to mankind.
God wants to save all people. He wants everyone to spend eternity with Him in heaven (2 Peter 3:9 & many others).
The tragedy is that most people will not find Jesus as Lord and Savior.
If anyone says no to Jesus, God cannot do anything more for them.
God has done everything He can do to save mankind.
He sent His only Son to the earth to die for the world!
Jesus rose from the dead and lives forevermore.
God sent the Holy Spirit to the earth.
Jesus – the Lord God Almighty – is available to every person, all the time, everywhere they go, for all eternity!
What else could God do for mankind?
How Can Jesus be Both God and the Son of God?
Who are we to question God?
One should never cross-question God Almighty.
We should honor and fear Him.
We should humble ourselves before Him.
We should be in awe of Him.
We should be in awe of His offer of Himself through Jesus!
Some object and say, “Jesus cannot be both God and the Son of God . . .” and “Jesus was a man but he cannot be God also . . .” and other similar objections.
Those who object are a son. Every person on earth has parents.
And they also may be a father – they might have a child or children.
So, which are they, a son or a father? They are both.
And, they are many others things, potentially a: brother, grandfather, friend, nephew, uncle, citizen (of a place), professional, student, hobbyist, and many other “titles.”
So it is with Jesus Christ. He has many, many names and titles.
How is it that man has numerous “titles?” Because God created man into His own image and likeness. God has many, many names, offices, titles and descriptions, and so it is with man.
God’s Plan for Humanity
God’s plan for humanity is so glorious, human words cannot express it.
God’s magnificent offers to mankind are beyond human comprehension. He has offered Himself, to every person, all the time, everywhere they go, for all eternity.
God’s Offer to Mankind
God’s offer to mankind is priceless, infinite and eternal. Why?
Because He is priceless, infinite and eternal, and infinitely, eternally more!
For all eternity, man will be in awe of Him and His offer to mankind.
Beyond Human Description
Notice some of the ways His offer is described in the Bible:
“The glorious splendor of Your majesty” . . . “A treasure hidden in a field, which a man goes and digs up again and again” . . . “The riches of the glory of the mystery” . . . (Psalm 145:5, MT 13:44-46, Colossians 1:27).
What is the Father, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit like?
“On the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works, will I meditate” (Psalm 145:5).
“One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold/gaze at/see the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire/seek Him in His temple” (Psalm 27:4, various translations).
Some translations, in place of beauty, say “splendor, delightfulness, sweetness, perfections, graciousness, goodness.” For Lord, some translations are “Lord Jehovah, Jehovah, Yahweh.”
The Father . . . the Lord Jesus . . . the Holy Spirit is indeed the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe. His presence is . . . the glory of the Lord.
When we go deeper with Him in the power of the Holy Spirit, and we experience His presence and glory, He is the only One we will want.
And the Holy Spirit reveals who Jesus Isaiah He’s the savior. He’s the Son of God. He’s our master and friend. And infinitely more.
And He is the Lord God Almighty.
Yet, Jesus Himself said, “My Father . . . is greater than all,” and “My Father is greater than I” (John 10:29, John 14:28).
It is an eternal mystery . . . the Father, Son and Holy Spirit . . . the trinity . . . one God . . . three Persons. They are one, yet they are separate and distinct Persons. The Holy Spirit reveals this mystery (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 2:10).
So when someone knows Jesus, they have a relationship with the Lord God Almighty. Knowing Him is the greatest and highest privilege for a human.
Another mystery is that it’s up to a person what they do with that relationship. Why is it like that?
Because God made man into His image and likeness and gave us a free will (Genesis 1:27, 2:7). God cannot make anyone follow Him or do anything.
Within knowing Him, He offers priceless results found only in Him, some of which are below.
Experts have found more than 7,000 promises to mankind in the Bible.
But let’s always remember: He Himself, His presence and His glory are the answer.
He is the answer: the only true God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Everything a person wants, needs, desires and longs for, is found in Him.
When someone finds Him, all the things listed below are a natural result.
The Answer: Knowing Him
The answer is going directly to Him, the one and only true God.
If someone goes to Him, with a repentant, humble spirit, and desires to meet Him, He will answer.
He will reveal Himself.
And that person will find the answer.
They will have the one and only thing, the thing that will last forever, that no one can ever take
from them . . . knowing the only true God.
Sometimes, we do everything else except developing our relationship with Him.
We search the Bible, do ministry, learn, go to church, cand so forth – and all those are good things.
But we might neglect the one and only thing – knowing Him!
The incredible truth is that He is merciful, gracious, patient, faithful and infinitely more.
When we come to Him, with a repentant heart, He receives us. Amen!
