Jesus Christ Is Lord!

Jesus is Lord “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”

When Jesus Christ was here on this earth He claimed to be the Son of God; a Savior for all people. The fact that Jesus claimed to be the Messiah is not the first time in history that someone has claimed to be God or someone sent by God. Many people have claimed to be sent by God throughout the history of this world. In the Book of Acts (Acts 5:36) we read of a man whose name was Theudas who claimed to be: "somebody" that people followed. Others include, Mohammed who is said to be a prophet of Ali, Buddha and many others. New ones pop up everyday. What so special about the coming of our Lord, Jesus The Christ is that it was predicted by Isaiah hundreds of years before Our Lord was ever born. There are many other references, in the scriptures to His coming birth before it happen. All others who claim to be God or come from God was after the fact (after they were born).  Our Lord Jesus fulfilled this prophecy and many others that were written before He was born. Jesus had many unique qualities that the others who claimed to be the messiah could not match; Jesus Christ overcame death on the cross and was resurrected. No others can claim this, let alone prove it. Further examples of why Jesus is Lord include, His ability to overcome temptation, living a sinless, and perfect life, along with His abilities to perform miracles that were well documented in the scriptures.  All this was done in the name of God our Heavenly Father.

Jesus performed more than twenty three recorded miracles while He was here on earth, but how many untold hundreds were not recorded? He overcame nature, and proved He was even Master of the sea, when He calmed the raging storm, He raised people from the dead, He multiplied food for thousands, He even rose from the dead, overcoming death. His powers of healing  have never been matched even to this day, because there are none. Many today still exercise their faith and they rise and are healed in His blessed and Holy name.  He had the ability to predict the future. And the future that our Lord Jesus predicted in the Bible has come to pass or is in the process of coming to past as I write this article. Jesus always honored God in everything through out His life on this earth. He was a humble and gentle picture of God's Spirit. If you seen Him, you seen the father.  There is no other faith in the world that can provide and show the same kind of proof. Today, Jesus is in heaven at the right hand of God. He lives in our heart. He is interceding for you and for me. Oh what a Savior! Although we cannot see Him, He is there and was there all the time. Other religions rely on hearsay and what is past down to them but we must rely on the truths and the well documented facts found in the Bible. On that Solid Rock we must stand! All other is sinking sand! Jesus Christ is Lord! Some day and very soon every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Soon and very soon we are going to see the King!
