If you have been surfing the web for a while, you have at least seen
questions like who is God? Who is Jesus Christ? Is Jesus God? and many other similar questions. Maybe you are here seeking answers too. *smiles*
Let’s start by answering the first question.
Who is God?
It’s not enough to know ideas about God or to worship scripture. Which is a thing believe me. But we must know God as a living and active force in the world.
We rely on God the Holy Spirit to bring us into knowledge about God the Father and God the Son but let’s not forget that the Holy Spirit itself is a person who is also God. Ist John 4:8 says God is Love.
But what does love mean?
Love is an activity. A restless ceaseless pursuit of his children. Hosea 11:1-4 spoke to me this way that God is like a loving father who calls his children, teaches them how to walk, takes them in his arms, heals them in kindness and love, lift us up to his cheeks and feeds us.
Who is Jesus Christ?
For 2000 years people have been asking the question, who is Jesus Christ? Jesus himself even asked his followers; “Who do you say that I am?”
Some say he was a historical figure, a man, a carpenter from Nazareth.Still Others say he was a philosopher, or a moralist, or a religious revolutionary. Some even say Jesus was a Myth or a prophet sent by God.
Now listen, Jesus is more than historical figure. He is our Savior, he is God with Us. He’s waiting for us to open to him so he can wash away our sins and fill us with his life.
The Bible answer to “Who is Jesus Christ?”
The Bible tells us that Jesus was A Man (1 Tim. 2:5) and gives us the details of His Birth (Luke 2:7), Life (Luke 2:52), and Death (2 Cor. 5:14). But the bible also tells us that Jesus is the Son of God (John 1:18) even God himself (John 1:1). In fact, the name Jesus mean Jehovah The Savior (Matt. 1:21). He’s also called the Everlasting Father (Isa. 9:6), the Mighty God (Isa. 9:6) and Emmanuel meaning God with Us.
Is Jesus God or Man?
The answer is He’s both. The bible tells us that Jesus is both the True God (Col. 2:9) and at the same time, he’s a Real Man (John 1:14). This God man Jesus lived the perfect and sinless human life (Luke 2:52) on the earth.
After 43 and a half years he died on the cross to take away our sins and to save us from the curse of sin, DEATH. He sacrificed himself in order to save us. But because he’s also the eternal God, it was impossible for death to hold him (Acts 2:24). He resurrected after 3 days and became a Live-Giving Spirit (1 Cor. 15:45). Now Jesus can come into our human spirit and give us the eternal life of God (1 Thes. 5:23). He’s available everywhere and to everyone who believes in him.
I believe they are reasons why the question “who is Jesus Christ” is coming up now but explaining him is impossible. Ignoring Jesus Christ is disastrous. Refusing Him is fatal. I can’t describe him enough.
We only need to confess our sins and believe in Jesus Christ to receive his as our lord and personal savior. With a simple prayer, You can do this right now.
Lord Jesus, I believe in you as my savior. Thank you for dying for me. Lord, forgive my sins and wash them away. Lord Jesus, I receive you right now. Thank you for coming into me. Amen
