THIS MAN "JESUS"
2000 years ago there was a Man born contrary to the laws of nature.
This Man was reared in obscurity. Earthly riches were not important to Him.
He did not travel extensively, only once did He cross the boundary of the country in which He lived and that was during His exile in childhood to Egypt.
In infancy He startled a king; in childhood He amazed Jewish leaders, in Manhood He ruled the course of nature, walking upon the billows as if pavement. He hushed the sea to sleep.
He healed multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His service.
He never wrote a book, and yet all the libraries of the country could not hold the books that have been written about Him.
He never wrote a song, and yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all the songwriters combined.
He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students.
He never practiced psychiatry and yet He has healed more broken hearts than all the doctors far and near.
Names of great scientists, philosophers, and theologians have come and gone; but the name of this Man abounds more and more.
Herod the great could not destroy Him and the grave could not hold Him.
His name stands highest of heavenly glory, acknowledged by angels and feared by devils.
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul "
As the living personal Christ, the Messiah and Savior, the Redeemer of man.
Here is God's appointed sacrifice for sins.
Long ago God's divine principle was established, that "without shedding of blood there is no remission."
Today God, in wondrous love tells us, "the blood of Jesus Christ His Son, cleanseth us from all sin"
Jesus is the only one that has fulfilled all of the scriptures regarding Messiah's birth, ministry, death and resurrection. There are over 300 prophetic scriptures in the Old Testament concerning Messiah's incarnation.
Jesus fulfilled them all.
Great is the mystery of godliness. God was manifest in the flesh in order that He might die for sinners.
He came to earth but was rejected by the people as their King at that time.
He is going to come to this earth again and then He will be accepted as not only King of the Jews, but as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Time here on earth is short. Eternity is forever soon Jesus will return to claim His believers.
