“Which ‘JESUS’ – 101”…Blog.
Did you ‘Know’… that there is ‘more than’, one Jesus, in the Bible…? Open your Bible to “Colossians 4:11” and see that Jesus. If you have read through any of the Old Testament, especially the first five books of Moses, called the Pentateuch, you will see the ‘detail’ there about the instructions from God. The “Specificity of the Word of God”, is ‘Exact’, in its Absolute Truth. No one can ‘imply or mistake’, what God has said. Perhaps in this world and its “Entropy”, the “Real Christian” needs to be… “More Exacting”… in their discussions about Christ Jesus, the Messiah. Hence “Christ”… is the Messianic term, for the “Redeemer of all Mankind!”
*** (Matthew 1:23) Behold, = the virgin = shall conceive = in her womb, = and = will bear a son. = And = they will call = “His Name Emmanuel,” = which being interpreted is, = “God” = with us.
*** (Matthew 1:20-21) And = as he = thought upon these things, = behold, = the angel of the Lord = appeared to him = in a dream, = saying, = Joseph, = son of David, = do ‘not’ fear = to take to you Mary = as your wife. = For ‘that’ in her = is fathered = of = the Holy Spirit.
(Matt 1:21) And = she shall bear = a Son, = and = you shall call = “His name = JESUS”: = for He shall save = His people = from their sins.
Have you ever… read through the New Testament… and listed ‘for’ yourself, the names by which “Christ Jesus” is called…? Perhaps if, you will take the time, turn off the TV and your computer; you will have an understanding of this wonderful subject. Simply take a notebook, and start listing those verses for yourself. It won’t happen overnight, but soon you will have a new appreciation of exactly Who… ‘Christ Jesus’ is. Did you notice, in the above Verses… that the Step Father of Christ, was Joseph. So too, we ‘must be’… “Adopted into God’s family”... to become sons & daughters of God!
(Ephesians 1:4-to-8) according as = He [God] = chose us = in Him [Jesus] = before = the foundation of the world, = that we = should be = holy = and = without blame = before Him = in love,
(Eph 1:5) having = predestined us = to the “Adoption” of children = by Jesus Christ = to Himself [God], = according to = the good pleasure = of His will,
(Eph 1:6) to the praise = of the glory = of His grace, = in which = He = has made us = ‘accepted’ = in the One [Jesus] having been loved.
(Eph 1:7) In Him [Christ] = we have redemption = “Through His blood”, = the forgiveness of sins, = according to = the riches of His grace,
(Eph 1:8) which = He = caused to abound = toward us = in all wisdom = and understanding;
How very Precious… the cost of ‘our’ redemption. As an unworthy sinner, simply redeemed, by the Mercy of God, in the… “Death, Burial and Resurrection”… of our Redeemer, “Christ Jesus”. It is by His Grace and Goodness to us, and ‘not’ by any works of our own. Not even the Old Testament Jew… could have this assurance. He had to ‘continually’ have the sacrifices for their, “Sin/Sins”. The ‘smell’ of some sacrifice, was always… pungent… in the atmosphere. Every time I drive past ‘Burger King’ a smell the ‘flame broiled’ burgers, I remember these thoughts, of what it must have been like.
*** (Hebrews 10:10-to-14) By this will = we are ‘sanctified’ = through = ‘the offering’ = of the body = of Jesus Christ = “Once for All”.
(Heb 10:11) And indeed = every priest = stands ‘daily’ = ministering and offering = often = the same sacrifices, = which can ‘never’ = take away sins.
(Heb 10:12) But this Man [Christ Jesus], = after He had offered = “one sacrifice” [Himself] = for sins = “Forever”, = sat down = on the right of God,
(Heb 10:13) from then on = expecting = until His enemies = are made His footstool.
(Heb 10:14) For by = “one offering” = He = has perfected = ‘forever’ = those who = are sanctified.
Perhaps you can see ‘Why’… I have entitled this blog… “Which Jesus?” Any religion, that does ‘Not’ believe that… “Christ Jesus is God”… is a ‘False One’… and so is, their ‘Jesus!’ Did you know that the Mormon religion, teaches the ‘Jesus’ is the brother of Lucifer and not God? Did you know that the Jehovah Witness, do ‘not’ believe that Jesus is God…? Many of the False Pseudo Christian sects, Denominations and Churches… Only use the Name of Jesus, in a historical or cultural way. Did you know, that Jesus, raised His own body…? He would surely have to be God, to do that!
*** (John 2:19-to-22) Jesus answered = and said to them, = Destroy this temple = and = in three days = “I” [Jesus] = will raise it up.
(John 2:20) Then the Jews said, = this temple was forty-six years building, = and = will You rear it up = in three days?
(John 2:21) But = He = “spoke of the temple – of His body”.
(John 2:22) Therefore = when = He had ‘risen’ = from the dead, = His disciples ‘remembered’ that = He = had said this to them, = and = they believed = the Scripture = and = the ‘word’ = which Jesus = had said.
*** (John 10:17-18) Therefore = My Father [God] = loves Me [Jesus], = because = “I” = ‘lay down’ = My life = so that = “I” [Jesus] = might = take it [up] again.
(John 10:18) ‘No one’ = takes it from Me, = but = “I” = lay it down = from Myself. = “I” = have authority = to lay it down, = and = “I” = have authority = to take it = again. = I have received = this commandment = from My Father.
Do you know… “Christ Jesus”… Who He really is and ‘Why’, it is so very important that You believe in the “Right Jesus”…? The exactness of the Scriptures will ‘not’ accept another ‘Jesus’ in the belief system of God. If your religion calls the name of Jesus, and it is ‘NOT’… the Jesus of the Bible, then your belief… will ‘not’ bring… “Eternal Salvation”. Say it isn’t so…? Is the Jesus you believe in… the same Jesus of Islam…? The Muslim believes in Jesus and that he came from God. Which ‘Jesus’, do you believe in…?
Recently someone said… God knows, which Jesus. I believe in, so it really doesn’t make any difference! May I ask you… is that ‘really’, what you Believe? Is there a Bible verse that contradicts that wrong belief…? Yes there is, posted below. Perhaps now is the time to ask you, when was the last time you read though the Bible, the Word of God, and saw ‘what it really said’ for itself…? When you were in school… did any professor or teacher, give you a right answer… because they ‘Knew’… what you meant… when your answer was ‘Wrong’…? Which… Jesus?
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) “NOT” = ‘everyone’ = who says to Me [Jesus], = Lord! = Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, = but = he who = does the will [Word] of = My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me = in that day, = Lord! = Lord! = Did we not = prophesy = in Your Name, = and = through Your Name = throw out demons, = and = through Your Name = do ‘many’ = wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And = then I [Jesus] = will say to them = “I” = never = knew you! = Depart from Me [Jesus], = those working lawlessness!
Which ‘Jesus', do you think… they believed, in or on…? If there is no ‘hunger’ for the Holy Word of God… in your life, and a ‘willingness’, to do His Word… did you ‘really’ believe in Jesus, the “Right Jesus”..? How many leave their Church and say, I once was a Christian, but the left the Faith. May I suggest the accuracy of the Word of God… when it say this, about their “Belief in Jesus?” Do you know anyone who says they were once, a Christian…? Which ‘Jesus’, did they believe in…?
*** (1John 2:19) “They” = went out = from us, = but = they were ‘not’ = of us; = for ‘if’ = they were of us, = they would have = continued with us. = But they went out = so that = ‘it might be revealed’ = that they were = ‘not’ = all of us.
*** (2Timothy 4:10) For = “Demas” = has forsaken me [Paul], = having ‘loved’ this present world, = and he has departed to Thessalonica. = Crescens went to Galatia, = Titus to Dalmatia.
In two, other chapters… ‘Demas’ was mentioned, “Colossians 4:14 and Philemon 1:24”. How about those Catholics, and their belief in Jesus, will that Jesus, get them to heaven…? How about the other Many Christian denominations, that teach, ‘other than that’, which is in the Bible and still ‘call’ themselves… “Christian?” If I live in a garage… can I then call myself a ‘car?’ Right away someone will say, I really didn’t know ‘WHO’ Jesus was, only that He died for my “Sin/Sins”…? But God knew which Jesus you really believe in, and it He was the right one, God gave His Holy Spirit to you. By the way, if it was the ‘Right Jesus’, do you now, read & study & obey… His Word…? Simply read… “James 1:22 & Luke 6:46”…!
*** (John 7:38-39) He who = believes on Me [Jesus], = as the “Scripture” = has said, = “Out of his belly = shall flow = rivers of living water”.
(John 7:39) But = He [Jesus] = spoke this about = the [Holy] Spirit, = which they = who believed = on Him [Jesus] =should receive; = for = the “Holy Spirit” = was not yet given, = because Jesus = was not ‘yet’ glorified. [risen from the dead]
*** (Ephesians 1:12-13-14) for us = to be = to the praise = of His glory, = ‘who’ = previously = had trusted in Christ; = [Christ–‘or’–Jesus?]
(Eph 1:13) in whom = also you, = hearing = the “Word of Truth”, = the gospel = of our salvation, = in whom = also believing, = you were = ‘sealed’ = with the Holy Spirit = of promise [Romans 8:9],
(Eph 1:14) Who = is the earnest = of our inheritance, = to the redemption = of the purchased possession [you], = to the praise of His glory.
Often times… people say they believe in Jesus. Did you notice how the above Bible verses, specify… that your belief… “Must be – According to the Scriptures?” And that, your belief is to be in “Christ Jesus”, His Messianic title…? Did you ever see a beggar next to the highway with a sign… “Need Help, Jesus loves you, what about me?” Which Jesus, was he speaking about…? Many here in America, have a “Cultural Jesus”… but ‘not’, the one of the Bible! How could there be so many that… Believe in Jesus… and there then, be the Murder of Innocent babies, in their mother’s womb…? Which ‘Jesus’ did they believe in…?
Do you know… when you are ‘to die’…? If you do not know, are you prepared in your ‘Belief in Jesus’, the Right Jesus… or in another Jesus…? Why then do so many… walk away from obedience to the Bible… and then come back, thinking their belief in ‘Jesus’ was correct…? So many young people, raised in ‘Pseudo Christian’ homes… ‘do not’, have a Bible concept of the Real Jesus. If they did… then just perhaps… they might “Obey His Word”…? And you, who are adults, do you keep His Word… or… just that of your preacher or your Church. Have you ever questioned, what was said from the Pulpit… because it did “Not Agree”… With the Holy Word of God…? Which Jesus… do you get from your Church…? Please read… “Isaiah 8:20”…!
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, = the days come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that = I will = send a famine = in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor a thirst for water, = but of ‘hearing’ = the Words of Jehovah [God].
*** (Luke 19:26) For I = say to you = that to everyone who has, = more will be given. = And = from him = who has not, = even that = which he has = will be taken from him.
(Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = Your Word = ‘above all’ = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
