TOPIC:  Jesus Christ Is The Great God

SCRIPTURE:  For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope- -the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Titus 2:11-13 NIV).

MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: Rhapsody Of Realities FOR Today || September 17th, 2022 — Jesus Christ Is The Great God

The Word of God is replete with incontrovertible proofs that Jesus is Himself, God. He’s our great God! Sadly, there’re Christians who haven’t come to this realization.

That’s why they still wonder how come He says He’s the Son of God if actually He is Himself, God. Well, the expression “Son of God” means God in human flesh!

In His manifestation in the flesh, Jesus put aside His glory so He could be a hundred per cent man and a hundred per cent God. That’s what legitimized His substitutionary work in our behalf; otherwise, it would have been questionable.

The Bible says He “… made himself of no reputation, and…was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:7-8).

When it says, “…our bodies washed with pure water,” it’s akin to what we have in 1 Corinthians 6:11: “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” Hallelujah! When you were born again, you were baptized into Christ (Baptism of the Holy Spirit); the Holy Spirit came upon you to live in you.

His purpose of coming upon you was to make your body His temple, the tabernacle where He now dwells. But first, He must wash that temple; He must purify and sanctify it. That’s His work, and at the New Birth, He sanctified your body and made it His home. He has made your heart His Home! Glory to God!

Jesus is God’s perfect imprint, the icon of the unseen God (Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:3). Hallelujah! But who was He before He came as a man? He was the Word, God’s Word: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). Then the 14th verse says, “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us….” The Word that was God, became flesh and He was named Jesus. Hallelujah!

In John 10:30, He said, “I and my Father are one.” When He made that assertion, the Bible says the Jews picked up stones to stone Him to death, because they understood what He meant. They said, “…For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God” (John 10:33). He wasn’t making Himself God; He was, and He is, God!

He said in John 14:7, “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.” Who did they know and see that He equated to the Father? Jesus! When Philip expressed doubt in the ensuing verse 8, the response from Jesus climaxed the discussion in a most unambiguous way. He said, “…Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father…” (John 14:9). Hallelujah!

CONCLUSION:

Blessed Lord Jesus, you’re awesome, glorious, Lord of heaven and earth; you alone are God; I extol your greatness and worship your holy Name. Your kingdom is forever, your reign is everlasting! To you be all glory, honour, majesty, dominion and praise, forever and ever. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY:

John 1:10-11; 10 He came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him]. 11 He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own—His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.

Hebrews 1-3 AMPC

Colossians 1:15-19 15 [Now] He is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible]; He is the Firstborn of all creation. 16 For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. 17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). 18 He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent]. 19 For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently.
