Jesus is everything! Jesus is my Lord and Savior! He is the Lord and Savior of this entire world and every human being in it! Jesus is known by many names in the Bible, a few of which are King of kings and Lord of lords, Lamb of God, the Alpha and Omega, Lion of Judah, and the Prince of Peace. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is also God in human form, and He is One with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice by willingly dying on the cross to forgive the sins of all mankind. He arose from the dead after three days conquering the evil one, sin, and death with one mighty blow! He ascended into Heaven, and one day He will return to this earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords forever!
Through Jesus we have access to Heaven!
Jesus said plainly and directly in John 14:6:
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
In Matthew 16:15-16 Jesus asks Peter a very important question:
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
In John 1:1-3 we learn that Jesus was with God from the beginning of Creation and He is God:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”
In John 1:14 we learn that Jesus, that is, God in human form, came to earth to be among us:
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Very simply Jesus is your Savior. He came to die for you, so your sins can be forgiven and you can be reconciled back to God and allowed into Heaven.
Jesus was crucified and killed, buried in a tomb, and came back to life on the third day just as the Bible says!
The Apostle Paul writing to the church in Corinth states:
“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.”
1 Corinthians 15:3-5
The story of the birth of Jesus Christ and His life, death, resurrection, and ascension into Heaven can be found in the Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Those four books are known as “The Gospels.”
Most of all Jesus died for you. He is your Savior from sin and death.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
“..while we wait for the blessed hope–the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,..”
“And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death–even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 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.”
After conquering death, Jesus left all of his followers with one important command before he ascended into Heaven:
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
That is what I have been doing for almost 22 years now! Jesus is Lord and He is alive! I can testify to that and I do! Read my book to find out about what happened to me when I stopped breathing in 2012! I was with Jesus and He protected me!
Jesus rescued us, and all you have to do is receive that gift!
“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil–and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
I pray you receive that precious gift of freedom today! Proclaim “Jesus is Lord,” and receive Him as your Savior!
“If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
God bless you all!
