THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST
In 2017 the world rages with deceptive politics, religion diluted by new age mysticism, Israel rocked by world anti-Semitism, and religion watered down to accommodate humanities carnal desires. This world is in need of returning to old time biblical knowledge of who Jesus is!
Mankind has forgotten through the ages what real life is all about and his purpose. It has been stolen by the adversary out to kill, steal and destroy.
This world has removed God from its daily life. Recent history has provided us with the bleakness of a godless society!
Ads proclaiming, “Why believe in a god?” has appeared on Washington buses.
The American Humanist Association campaign for agnostics, atheists and non-theists who feel alone because of societies association with traditional religion, campaign against God and religion.
London British Humanist Association released a campaign on London buses with the message: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy life.”
Roughly seven-in-ten (72%) Americans say they believe in heaven – defined as a place “where people who have led good lives are eternally rewarded,” according to the Pew Research Center.
Over the last 20 years, the numbers of Americans who believe in the fiery pits of hell have dropped from 71 percent to 27 percent.
Many religions have become no more than social organizations doing good for the community.
We can continue listing agenda’s, resources, and propaganda campaigns that are directly against the Word of God!
That is the negative report!
The positive? There is anticipation like never before of what God is doing and about to do in the following days, weeks and months right up to the rapture of His church.
We can never forget whom Jesus is and what we have to offer! Too many have forgotten in a world gone mad!
He came from the bosom of the father to the bosom of a woman.
He put on humanity that we might put on divinity.
He became Son of Man that we might become Sons of God.
He came from heaven where the rivers never freeze, winds of adversity never blow, frosts of disappointment never chills the air, flowers of youth never fade, a doctor’s office – is never phoned because no one is ever sick, no funeral director is ever needed – there aren’t any funerals – no one is ever buried. He arrived proclaiming the gospel – He left declaring I go to my father’s house where there are many mansions and I go to prepare a better place for you!
This all may seem elementary, but too many times in busy schedules, it’s easy to forget exactly what the main thing is. We are offering an incredible overcoming power authority living in dominion life, then internal life, what a deal!
He was born contrary to the laws of nature, lived in poverty, raised in obscurity, and only once crossed the boundary line of His own land in childhood.
He had no wealth nor influence, training nor education.
His relatives were inconspicuous and non-influential.
In infancy – He startled a king; in boyhood – He puzzled the doctors; in manhood – He ruled the course of nature.
He walked on the waves of a stormy sea, hushed the seas to sleep, healed the multitudes without medicine, the blind received their sight, the lame leaped, the dumb talked, He raised the dead.
He never wrote a book, yet the libraries of the world cannot contain the books that could be written about Him.
He never wrote a song, yet He furnished the themes of more songs than all songwriters combined.
He never founded a college, yet all the schools together cannot boast of as many students as He has.
He never practiced medicine, yet He healed more broken hearts than doctors healed broken bodies.
He never commanded an army on this earth; but He leads legions of the mighty armies of heaven, and one day an army of saints of the Most High God returning to earth!
He is the star of astronomy, the rock of geology, the lion and the lamb of zoology, the harmonies of all discord, and the healer of all diseases.
Herod could not kill Him, satan could not seduce Him, death could not destroy Him, and the grave could not hold Him.
He laid aside His purple robe for a peasant’s gown.
He was rich, yet for our sakes, became poor. How poor? Ask Mary, ask the wise men. He slept in another’s manger, He cruised the lake in another’s boat, He road on another’s man’s donkey, He was buried in another’s man’s tomb, but He never failed and He fulfilled His mission!
He was the perfect Incomparable Christ, lived, died, rose again!
That same spirit that was with Him through His birth, through His life, that raised Him from the dead, lives in the born again saint of God today, that same power resides in us!
At the beginning of 2017, we stare down a rocky, curvy, most chaotic, unrealistic, intolerant path in the history of mankind, but we rest knowing who Jesus is!
Deuteronomy 33:27 (KJV)
27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.
My faith, my trust as in years past is not in government, not in man, not in my talents, my finances, nor my abilities – my trust is in the almighty God!
Psalm 20:7 (KJV)
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
He had a plan before the beginning of creation, during Jesus residence on this earth, a plan for the early church to start the revival that would last through the ages, and His plan has not diminished for the end time church.
I face 2017 with all of its unanswered questions exuberantly, knowing God has got this! I’m excited about revival that 2017 is going to bring – the miracles, signs, and wonders the church is going to experience, and the soon approaching return of our savior!
May 2017 bring you mighty blessings of revival!
