As Christmas approaches, let us remember the true meaning of it. Although family and presents and lights and decorations and songs and laughter are great, let us step back and consider that God sent His Son to us to save us. Let us remember this throughout the year and trust Him in all things. Let us abide In the light of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Continue reading “Jesus is the Light, We are the light”
“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”…
“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:8, 11
Who is God? What is His character and attributes? There are scriptures throughout the Bible that describe Him and who He is. For this post, I will use the Book of Revelation to try to share who God is. He is the great, almighty God who is worthy to receive all of our blessings and worship. He has given us everything. He created us and He loves us.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Continue reading “Jesus: Lord, Savior, Son of God? Yes!”
A hard concept in Christianity is one God in three Persons. Many times I feel like I understand it, but to explain it is often difficult. We will see if I succeed. I am sure I will get a comment of someone telling me I did not. I received a comment in my previous blog that I was wrong saying Jesus is God. But, the more I looked the more evidence I see in the scriptures of His deity. More on this in future posts. Even though it was a negative comment, it was good because it inspired me to dig deeper and gave me ideas to write more posts! So, here we go! Continue reading “Who is God?”
