A mere glance at these included names and titles for Christ Jesus, taken from the Holy Bible, cannot fail to impress any thoughtful student of God’s Word.
This Great Commission, as the saints of all ages have consented to call it, constitutes the marching orders of his church for a day and to all eternity. It is a whole galaxy studded with many of the biggest stars in the firmament of Christian doctrine.
And Jehovah spake again unto Ahaz, saying, Ask thee a sign of Jehovah thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. But Ahaz said, I … Continue reading BEHOLD! The Virgin Shall Conceive And Bear a SON
God’s command for Christians is that they should sing, and if playing instruments of music is an acceptable part of divine worship, it is difficult to understand why it would not have been so stated in this place.
God entered the ranks of humanity, became a man in the person of his son Jesus Christ, and paid the penalty for human sin, laying upon himself in the person of his Son the iniquity of us all.
In the Christian religion, God Himself pays the penalty of redemption.
The Virgin Birth is a prominent and essential teaching of the Christian religion.
To give up the doctrine of virgin birth is to sacrifice the integrity of the gospel authors, the convictions of the apostolic church, and the entire premise of supernatural religion as revealed in the Holy Bible.
From this opening word to the end of the Gospel, there is not the slightest deviation from the sacred author’s intention of presenting Jesus Christ as God come in the flesh for the purpose of human redemption, and to whom every person owes the uttermost worship and devotion.
They greatly err who suppose that John differed from the synoptics regarding the virgin birth of our Lord, for it is in this verse recorded that the Word who was God did in fact become flesh, and that he was “the only begotten” of the Father!
So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven;
but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
The mode was IMMERSION, and baptism normally coincided with the reception of the Holy Spirit.
This metaphor reveals Jesus as God.
The first five of those appearances occurred on the day of his resurrection, and the other five later, during the interval before his ascension.
Peter knew that he would have no legitimate successor and indicated it in 2 Peter 1:13-15 where he WROTE the word of God in order for it to be available, as he said, “after my decease”! If a successor had been contemplated, that would have been unnecessary.
This promise, emphatically delivered to Peter here, was also the property of the Twelve and not Peter’s exclusively. All of the apostles, not merely Peter alone, were included in this promise. Matthew 16 & 18
Having determined that Jesus was not the type of Messiah they wanted, the priestly leaders of the people exhausted their resources of cunning and deceit in an all-out campaign to convince the people that Jesus was not the Christ. Luke 9 – Matthew 16
The account here was written by a brilliant physician, scientist and literary genius, following years of patient and thorough research, and who had the incomparable opportunity of examining all of the sources, written and oral, that had any bearing on the events narrated.
The sacred Hebrew Tetragrammaton, the mystic four-letter word used of the Deity, is composed of the four Hebrew consonants Y-H-W-H, usually translated “JEHOVAH” in the American Standard Version (Exodus 17:15). The true and original pronunciation of it has been totally and completely lost.
The widely-received, illogical SALVATION-BY-FAITH-ONLY contradiction of the word of God should not be permitted to deceive anyone. As the author of this epistle said, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).
The great hallmark of the New Covenant lies in the promise of God to forgive the sins of his people, a promise that simply did not pertain to the old covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-35); and, therefore, in Micah 7, we have a certain indication that the passage is Messianic.
Jesus has already won the war, it’s over, and every man and woman should repent, and be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Christ will return!
The Judgment Day will arrive!
Get right with God.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16 RSV
