Jesus Is Lord

Lord Jesus Christ:

 

Lord Jesus Christ

Genesis 1:1, NKJV

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
In this simple line, we see the start to both the world as we know it, as well as the most moving love story ever told. It is a love story that spans across time and space, from Heaven to Earth, from before time existed, to all eternity.

And through it all, our Lord Jesus Christ was always there. From the very beginning, till the very end. He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last.

This is not just a cliche, or a catch phrase often used in Christian circles. It is instead, a very real truth, and a personal revelation of it will bring a supernatural peace and abundant blessings to come upon you.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Let’s go back to the very beginning… …

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, the sun and the moon, as well as fishes, animals, plants, and every other thing that exists. Yet, among all these, the one thing that God was most proud of is You!

When God created humans, He created beings whom He can have a relationship with, real people whom He can fellowship with. We were all meant to walk and talk with God in a perfect garden named “Eden”.

However, when Adam and Eve, the first humans, disobeyed God, this all changed. Because of God’s Perfection and Holiness, Adam and Eve had to be banished from the garden.

But what many people do not realize, is that even the banishment is done out of love. Any being that is not perfectly sinless simply cannot stand in the presence of God, it would literally kill them. Therefore, despite the strong desire to fellowship and bless man, God had to banish them from the garden.

Yet, even though God is a God of perfect justice, He is even more a God of infinite love. Through His wisdom, He has foreseen the falling of man, and through His goodness and mercy, already had a plan of redemption in place – Jesus.

Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, would come to earth as a man, and take our place as a substitute. He Himself would suffer all the penalties for man’s sin so that man can be saved.
Lord Jesus Christ - The Bridge


Long before our Lord Jesus Christ was even born, the prophet Isaiah made a prophecy of His coming:

Isaiah 9:6–7

In For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Of all the 33 years that Jesus lived, He was totally free of sin. On top of that, during His 3 years of ministry, He went about doing good to all He met.

Through His teachings, He freed people from spiritual bondage.

Through His healings, He gave people a chance to live life anew.

Through His many miracles, He gave everyone a chance to clearly see the Heart of the Father.

For example, in Luke 7:11-15, Jesus met a widow whose only son recently died. This not only grieved the widow greatly, but also left her without any financial support. When Jesus saw her, He was so moved by compassion for her that He stopped, and approached her without anyone asking Him to. Immediately, He raised the dead man right from his burial bier, and returned him to his mother.

From this incident, and many, many more recorded in the Bible, we can clearly see the tender heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. Not only can we see His power and authority over all things, including demons and devils, and even death. But more importantly, we see His compassion and love towards all human.

Jesus, being perfect in all aspects, bridged the gap between God and man, by becoming the only God-Man – completely divine, yet completely human at the same time. He is the King of kings, yet also the servant of us all. He is our savior and redeemer, one that understands our weaknesses and infirmities.

There are just so many different aspects to our Lord Jesus Christ, all of which are beautiful and perfect. But right now, we would like to just elaborate on four very important ones.
