Welcome once again to my humble abode, I hope that everyone is seeing the brighter side of their day and if they aren’t I would just like a moment to present to you one bright side of everyday!
Jesus! That’s right, Jesus Christ is the brightest side of everyday that we will ever have on this very earth as long as we shall live and even after this life to infinity and beyond, but how many of us ever take in the true power and meaning of that name, how many of us ever take in the true power of our Lord Jesus Christ and savior? Now I’m sure many will say ‘It’s just another one of the many names that God has chosen to call himself.’ but this is one of the very last names that God has decided to choose for himself to show us how great and true he really is, this is the very name where he clearly states all throughout the bible the true name of his true form and of his magnificent power.
We can read in verses below that ALL power in heaven and EARTH has been given unto the name of Christ, not just ‘some’ or a little bit of heavenly power and strength but ALL.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18 K.J.V.
Now isn’t that just an amazing thing that Jesus is so much more powerful then most of us can even imagine, I mean, even if we believe we have it figured out about him and even if we do we still can not even begin to fully comprehend the wonderful acts that he can pursue or how glorious he really is.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. –
Colossians 2:9 K.J.V.
He IS the fulness of the Godhead, when I think of Christ I often think of these two words put into a perfect harmony in my mind that ‘HE IS’ because we can go over the many names for Christ, or we can even go over his many attributes of pure greatness and majesty, but when it all really comes down to it if we don’t recognize that Jesus Christ ‘IS’ then I’m afraid we are missing out on everything.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. – 1 Timothy 3:16 K.J.V.
One of my very favorite verses when it comes to describing to us who Jesus Christ really was in this life and in the next, he WAS GOD, manifested in the flesh, justified in Spirit, the angels seen him, he preached unto Gentiles, believed on in this world, and received up into glory, it very well states that this was God, so who else could it been?
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. – 1 Corinthians 8:6 K.J.V.
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: – Colossians 1:15-16 K.J.V.
He IS our one God, the Father, whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus, by whom are all things, and we by him, I don’t know about you but for me when we really grab a hold of it’s true meaning it ought to really make us joyful inside, knowing that we know such a great and mighty God that has such power where with him ALL things are possible.
Amen He IS
I don’t know about you my friends but I am sure very grateful that God took it upon himself to come to this earth in human form to bear the worlds sins on the cross so that we might be saved – (1 Peter 2:24) I am exceedingly glad that he did these things, and furthermore let us know that there is NO other name by which we MUST be saved.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Praise God and amen for that, we also can learn so much more from his name but I try to keep my blog posts around 1,000 words or less, but to just make one more point I would also like to try and mention that we will also suffer great persecution for his name sakes, it truly is ALL found in HIS name everywhere we look in the bible.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. – Mark 13:13 K.J.V.
And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. – Acts 4:18 K.J.V. (Seems to me this is still happening a lot today, even in some of the ‘Churches’)
Preaching in Jesus name caused the apostles to be imprisoned and martyred, we are no greater or no less than them, and in these days there are still many brothers and sisters in Christ who take the persecution bravely and boldly for his names sake’ let us not forget them ever.
Jesus – The NAME of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, he holds ALL power in heaven and in earth, he IS the I AM and the I AM HE. We must not forget these things, we must always be in the remembrance of such power in his name, you know there is the old Gospel song that puts it this way – JESUS – There is SOMETHING, about that name, if and only if we could all just fully – grasp the entirety of what that something really is, perhaps then we could have our eyes completely opened to his truth.
The conclusion of this post will be shorter than the other ones in the past, but that is only because I think that I have covered all the bases and the above paragraph not including everything else is above and beyond ENOUGH and ALL that anyone ever needs to know on the matter, because when it comes to our Lord Jesus, we NEED to know one valuable aspect and this very aspect where so many seem to lose sight of is this.
Until next time my long distant friends, I’m Nathan Tune signing off from the deeply Conservative pinewoods of East Texas, have a lot of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy and don’t forget to say thanks for all the little things in life.
