Why complain or ask why persucution of Christians?

Did not the Lord tell us in His Word that we would suffer for His sake?

What is happening today with all this ungodliness with which we are surrounded is nothing more but fools being drawn away by their own lusts and evil desires.

Islam is about as Anti-Christ as anything can get, and yet some of our people are going over to the Middle East to join ISIS. Again these are fools that do not want the truth of Jesus, so they reject it, and run to serve the anti-christ radical Islamsts.

Christians around the world are either going to grow up and take a bold stand for Christ, or they are going to continue to wimp out and serve their own bellies.

Judgement comes upon the House of God first.

In the old testament Joshua said, “Choose ye this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

In Thessalonians it is written, “because they love not the truth God will send them strong delsion that they should believe a lie.”

With all this anti-christ behavior around us, God is providing some strong delusion so that they who love not the truth will be drawn away to perish.

Perhaps one day our decision will be to either die for Christ as a martyr, or continue to live as a deluded coward.

The “Apple Pie and Ice Cream” gospel which has over the years lulled many Christians into a spiritual slumber, will soon be replaced by the gospel of the Kingdom of God.

Therefore do not be alarmed by persecution but rejoice that the Lord’s return is at hand!

DISCOVERING THE LORD JESUS THE CHRIST “AS HE IS” TODAY PART VIII of XIII

DISCOVERING THE LORD JESUS THE CHRIST “AS HE IS” TODAY PART VIII of XIII

By Frank J Manasseri

Is Jesus Christ fully God?

The epistle of Hebrews is one of “much more”, “better than”, “greater than”. In all things the epistle of Hebrews shows that Jesus was and is greater than all the prophets, angels and is even greater than Moses. It also speaks of the New Covenant with its better promises than that of Abraham.

Chapter one deals with the Divine Nature of Jesus Christ and begins with the word GOD! This should immediately capture the reader’s attention, in that it is likened to Genesis which begins with, “In the beginning, GOD!” or “GOD in the beginning”. No other epistle begins in this manner, and as such Hebrews should get our focused attention because this epistle declares that God is speaking to us in His dear Son.

God makes it known that in these last days He is speaking to us through His dear Son. God speaks to us not through the prophets or by way of angels, but in His dear Son.

His Son is greater than all the prophets or angels who did in the Old Testament speak at various times and places for God. Under the Old Covenant the prophets and angels were limited to communicate to man’s intellect. However, now under the New Covenant Jesus speaks by way of Holy Spirit, directly into the spirit or heart of His people!

His Son is the brightness of His (the Father’s) glory and the express image of His nature. His only begotten Son is the exact imprint of the Father, speaking into the heart or spirit of believers. The resurrected, glorified, Christ is imparting the very life of God from the Throne room of heaven itself into the spirit of believers. 4

The Son of God upholds all things by the word of His power which has been bestowed upon Him by the Father. He has been appointed heir of all things being made so much better than the angels. He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they have.

This Son of God, in whom God is speaking to us today, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down or took His dignified and rightful place at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Because He loved righteousness and hated iniquity, God anointed Him with the oil of joy above His fellows. As we shall see later on in this study, this anointing of Joy or Holy Spirit occurred sometime after the resurrection, between the Ascension from the Mount of Olives, and the day of Pentecost.

Therefore today if we do not harden our hearts, the Son of God lives in our heart to impart very heaven to us from His throne. He reveals Himself to us, ever perfecting us,
bringing us into the Father’s presence, in order that we may one with Him and with the Father thereby becoming over-comers in this world.

This is just a small portion of what Hebrews Chapter one reveals to those who are seeking and hungering after Truth.

To be continued. . .
