SEVEN FACTS ABOUT JESUS
The Bible speaks of many things about the second personality of the Godhead – Jesus.
The first chapter of the book of John speaks of Him as the Word which was with the Father from the very Beginning.
He became flesh, came to earth, died for our sins, was buried, and he resurrected and ascended.
He has therefore granted our power to become the sons of God. This in itself is the Grace of God.
Without much ado, here are seven facts about Jesus that will sustain your faith. Never forget these facts, for they are too true and real to be false.
- Jesus is the creator.
- He is above all.
- His name is above all.
- His blood guarantees our liberation.
- Jesus is the great healer.
- He his faithful to His promises
- He saves.
1. Jesus is the creator.
John 1:3_AMP. “All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.”
The Bible clearly States that all things were made by Jesus, and nothing was made without Him.
This implies that even our enemies were made by Jesus, including Satan – their master. So, a Christian should never be afraid, should he? Definitely not.
2. He is above all.
John 8:23_AMP. “He said to them, You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world.”
Let’s see another scripture.
John 3:31_AMP. “He Who comes from above (heaven) is [far] above all [others]; he who comes from the earth belongs to the earth, and talks the language of earth [his words are from an earthly standpoint].
He Who comes from heaven is [far] above all others [far superior to all others in prominence and in excellence].”
I want us to believe strongly in our heart that Jesus Christ is above everything, physical, spiritual or imaginary.
Eph 4:10_ESV. “He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)”
Jesus is the commander-in-chief of everything, existing and to come.
3. His Name is above all.
ESV. “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
The name of Jesus is above every other name in heaven, on earth, or underneath the earth. It is a very beautiful name.
Oh, I want to learn to call that name. It was made available unto you by the blood of Jesus himself. What an amazing name this is!
4. His blood guarantees our liberation.
Rev 1:5_AMP. “And from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood…”
We have our liberation through the blood of Jesus. Anytime you feel things are not right around you, call on Jesus.
He hears you when you call on Him, and he saves. Trust me, it works.
He cares about our deliverance. This is the reason for His coming to earth. Psalm 3. Jesus delivers from physical enemies! Consider the case of the adulterous woman who was brought to Jesus. Also, He delivers from sorrow and death – He has done it be before, he can do it again.
5. Jesus is the Great Healer.
Before you visit a doctor, talk to Jesus. When doctors do their best and they fail, don’t hesitate to run to Jesus. He is the Lord your healer.
Jesus healed so many people with different manners of diseases when he was on earth. He still heals, because He still lives.
Luke 4:40_”ESV:Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them.”
What manner of man is JESUS!
6. He is faithful to His promises.
When you are sure that Jesus’ promises stands unshaken, you have nothing to worry about.
All the promises of God are fulfilled in Jesus, isn’t that amazing? Yes! And even Jesus himself has made a lot of promises for us, and He will surely fulfil them.
John 14:14_AMP: “[Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am].”
7. He saves.
This is the absolutely the most amazing fact about Jesus.
John 3:16_AMP. “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”
Jesus saves from sin. He saves from curses, anxiety, depression, frustration, addictions, etc.
He is willing and ready to save you today, but would you let Him?
How do you let Him? By confessing your sins and accepting His Lordship over your Life.
Very simple, that’s it. Do it right away. He loves you, more than anyone does. Certainly, more than you love yourself.
In conclusion, now that we know who Jesus is to us, we should give our lives totally to Jesus Christ.
2 Cor. 7:1_”Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
Let us examine ourselves and return to the Lord, so that all the promises of Jesus may be fulfilled in our lives.
GOD BLESS YOU.
