.........Of all that Jesus said, THESE WORDS are His most important to us all. Without knowing and believing this foundational TRUTH, the rest does not even matter...Who Jesus is, is the first and most important truth to Know and Believe.....Read Below.
****Christ Words in John 8:21-25....Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Jesus tells the Jews and all the world His Highest and Most Important Words in these verses. Of all Jesus said, These words rank His most important sermon and message to all of us, even to all the world.
21 Again Jesus said to them, “I go away (back to heaven), and you will seek me and die in your sins (unsaved); where I am going, you cannot come (if you do not believe these words Jesus said, they would die in their sins unsaved, unpardoned, and unforgiven.”)
22 Then said the Jews, “Will he kill himself, since he says, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come’?”
23 He said to them, “You are from below, I AM FROM ABOVE (Heaven itself); you are of this world, I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD.
24 I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins UNLESS YOU BELIEVE THAT I AM HE (The Christ, the Son of God).”
25 They said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Even what I have told you from the beginning.
........Then some time later Jesus ask his twelve disciples, Who do you believe and say that I Am ?....And Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. After hearing this Jesus said to Peter, Blessed are you Peter, for nothing of this world made this known to you, My Father in heaven opened your eyes to know who I really am.
....... Then even later John the disciple remembering the words of Jesus wrote....1 John 5:1-5....Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Faith Conquers the World
.....1 Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God ( born of God means is saved, is justified, is a new creature in the spirit of our being), is a child of God, and every one who loves the parent (the Father) loves the child (The Son-the children). 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments (Commandment...You shall love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law is summed up in that One Commandment obeyed). 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whoever is born of God overcomes the world (Saved); and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith, our believing. (Eph 2:8-10...For by grace you are saved THRU FAITH (Thru what you believe) and that not of yourselves, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD, not of works lest any man should boast). Paul said we are saved and justified by faith). 5 Who is he that overcomes the world but he who BELIEVES (Believes what????) Believes THAT JESUS IS THE SON of GOD.
Friends you and I who really believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God BY WHOM GOD MADE THE WORLDS, this truth we know and this truth that we believe gives value to all of Jesus Christ WORDS and SACRIFICE. Jesus Is the Lord from Heaven.
Jesus was not an ordinary man. He was the Christ, the Son of Almighty God by whom God CREATED ALL THINGS BY. In Christ, Immanuel which means God with us had become a man.....That's the BIG DIFFERENCE between Jesus and all the other self appointed so call prophets....Jesus who in the Spirit is Creator ranks FAR FAR FAR ABOVE ALL.....Jesus is Lord......deno....share freely.
