Jesus
March 4, 2018

March will be a month of Jesus, The Life, The Death and the Resurrection. To know Jesus and make Him known!!!

God’s Not Dead “A Light in the Darkness” trailer.

Today is The Reality of Jesus, followed by;

  • The Attack
  • The Understanding
  • The Revealing
  • The Revelation…His resurrection

Ladies and gentlemen before He can come again He had to first come! Who He is matters. He is not just a good man, just a great teacher or just a prophet.

Jesus
The Light In Darkness
His Divine Nature

"If Jesus is the Son of God, his teachings are more than just good ideas from a wise teacher; they are divine insights on which I can confidently build my life."

- Lee Strobel

"Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is
He the best of several ways; He is the only way."

- A. W. Tozer 

"There are two hundred and fifty-six names given in the Bible for the Lord Jesus Christ, and I suppose this was because He was infinitely beyond all that any one name could express."

- Billy Sunday 

"Jesus Christ became Incarnate for one purpose, to make a way back to God that man might stand before Him as He was created to do, the friend and lover of God Himself."

- Oswald Chambers

Darkness must discredit Light in order to remain dark.  Those who’ve come from darkness have the responsibility of being the display of Christ to a lost world. (“The Human Right” To Know Jesus Christ and Make Him Known.) 

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention

what the disobedient do in secret. But everything
exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything
that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”

Moses a glimpse of God then needed the “I am” of belief before he could give the message to Pharaoh! John The Baptist gave the crowd “Behold one whose shoes I’m not worthy to touch” and then needed to know Jesus one more time.   

Three things that are essential to knowing Christ;

  • He is The Son of God The Father
  • As the Son of God He chose to come
  • Jesus is God with us, Relationship dispels “darkness”

He is The Son of God…

Religion and religious is one of the “Darkness’s” greatest allies.     

"For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God," (John 5:18).

John 8:58 reminded those who opposed Him that He existed before Abraham. After all they called Abraham their father.

Jesus willingly came…

Concerning giving His Life… John 10:18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. 

Willingness always produces a greater dimension of freedom. Being forced to do anything builds resentment to that cause or calling.  Love, worship, serving, giving, encouraging, etc. all become more inspirational with willingness.

Jesus is God with us…

Matthew 1:23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (God With Us)

Hebrews 13:5  Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Duet. 31:8, Joshua 1:5

When God is “present” becomes embraced; there is a message and reality of God. There is a power to all who “walk it”. This understanding guards, guides and challenges. How true is His protection! How real is His Leading! How life changing is knowing He is right with me!
