Is Jesus a prophet, or a myth, or one of many gods, or just a good man treated badly? Who is Jesus? What if He is God Himself?
Imagine Jesus the Son of God, the divine light, the very essence of God, the Lord of eternity and destiny, the prince of peace, the King of glory, the beginning and the end, the first and the last, gave up His heavenly riches and became a servant to humanity. He descended from heaven and became flesh and blood, walked the earth as a man and on the cross took upon His body all evil and all the offences of humanity. Jesus rose from the dead in a resurrected glorified body, ascended into heaven and is now at the right hand of the Father, still interceding.
jesus the king of the kingdom
Who is Jesus? The King of glory who took on human form, lived, died, rose and ascended on high. In Jesus’ earthly ministry the Kingdom of heaven came down into this world damaged by evil. His Kingdom is an eternal kingdom of equality and respect, truth and justice, peace and harmony, restoration and healing, freedom for the captives and liberty for the oppressed. Jesus brings the reality of the Kingdom of God here on earth into this world damaged by evil. He gave His Spirit to all who receive and believe in Him, and in time future will return and gather them together to Himself.
God does everything out of love because God so loves. There is no greater love. This love of God is a love beyond our own understanding. Even when we choose to reject His love, He still says, ‘I love you!’
Listen to the sermon behold the man!
‘Behold the One His eyes like fire! Those who receive Him see His love, light. life. Those who reject Him see damnation, darkness, death.’ @ineverystep
