Jesus Christ the Word

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning" John 1:1-2


What Jesus says about Faith
**************
           Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them 
Mark 11:2

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." 
Matthew 19:26

Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." 
Mark 9:23

If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree,' Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.  
Luke 26:34

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 
Mark 11:22-23

So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 
Matthew 6:29-30

Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 
Matthew 6:31-32

So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

Prayer

 

This website was created to glorify God through the words of Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that you will be enlightened, encouraged and blessed as you read  Jesus' words about life issues such as love, marriage, death, faith, wealth, healing, eternal life, discipleship, war and much more. Additionally, we will also look at Jesus' early life and His ministry  Jesus' words  are of utmost significance because He is one with God; Jesus said in -John 10:30  I and the Father are one”. As the Son of God,  Jesus' words  take preeminence above those of prophets, apostles and religious personalities. It is Jesus only who absolutely knows God and His message for Mankind - "I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak"-John 12:49-50. 

Who is Jesus? 

It is fairly common to hear individuals say that they know about Jesus Christ – and this may indeed be true. But, when pressed further for what Jesus says about spiritual matters and life issues, it becomes evident that they know of Him but they don’t know what he says. Many are sincere when they say “I believe in God”. But they may also openly deny or subtly ignore the reality of Jesus Christ. Yet, the bible, and historical records clearly document the existence of Jesus Christ. Many prophecies, testimonies and accounts in the bible all attest to the existence of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. One notable record is found in Luke 1:35 where an angel announces to Mary that she has been chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ – And the angel answered and said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God’”  Another significant scripture is Matthew 3:17, where God revealed Jesus’ identity to the world  - "And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Even the demons knew that Jesus is the Son of God - Mark 3:11 “And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, ‘You are the Son of God."  

As we read about Jesus’ divine mission in the gospels, there emerges four main reasons why He came to earth. First, it was to redeem us from the death sentence of sin and give us eternal life - John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes on Him will have everlasting life.”  Secondly, it was to reconcile us to God- "For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him"- John 3:17.  Thirdly, it was to reveal the character and nature of God to us -"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works." John 14:10.  And fourthly, it was to teach us how to love God and show love for each other -  So he answered and said, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.' “ Luke 10:27.    

The words of Jesus endure forever- He says Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Mark 13:31. Therefore, we do not have to wonder what would Jesus say?” or what would Jesus do?”  The answers are found in the recorded scriptural text throughout the bible and especially the New Testament. It is because of Jesus' sacrificial death that we are redeemed from sin, and  receive the gift of eternal life. On earth, Jesus lived the perfect example of how we must love and serve God. His lifestyle provided the blueprint for living the abundant life in obedience to God’s commands. His purpose was always to convey spiritual truths to our spirits. Jesus’ words minister to our hearts with salvation; to  sick bodies with divine healing; to troubled minds with peace; and to our needs with provision. But ultimately, every word spoken by Jesus in sermons, parables and teachings validates God's promises, laws and commands. 

A Prayer to accept Jesus as Savior

Heavenly Father, I come to you in repentance for my sins. Please forgive me. I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son and He  died for my sins. I now receive Him as my Lord and  Savior. By faith I accept your forgiveness and your love for me. I receive your peace into my spirit and I am now a child of God. In Jesus name: Amen
