THE LORD JESUS CHRIST: TRUE GOD FROM
ETERNITY & TRUE MAN BORN OF A VIRGIN!
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Fifty years of studying the God’s unadulterated Word as well as the history of the rise and fall of nations, the miracle that is Israel and the satanically orchestrated hatred for Jews and Christians down through the centuries, has galvanized my belief that Jesus Christ is the Only Hope and Salvation of this world!
Britain’s greatest Prime Minister WILLIAM GLADSTONE stated: “The Bible is stamped with the specialty of origin. An immeasurable distance separates it from all other competitors.”
VICTOR HUGO made this stupendous and truthful statement: “England made Shakespeare and the Bible made England.” And yet, many Englishmen of today have turned away from the Living God and are sadly turning to the perverted New Age Movement, witchcraft, false teachings and man-made doctrines of foreign pagan religions!
SIR WALTER SCOTT emphasized, “The Bible: In the whole world it is The Book: all other books are mere leaves, fragments.” And Prof. Dyson Hague (1961) stated: “Yes, it alone is the universal BOOK – the Eternal Book. It is the VOICE; all others are merely books for the hour. The Bible is the Book of all time. It stands alone; unapproachable in grandeur; as high above all other books as heaven is above earth, as the Son of God above the sons of men.”
Four thousand years ago MOSES the great Lawmaker, wrote: “Ask now of the days, that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven to the other whether there hath ever been such a thing as this great thing is or hath been heard like.” (Deut.4: 32)
Ichthus (ikh-thoos or ichthys), the Greek word for fish is a many centuries old symbol. During the early persecutions of the Church, the ichthus sign was used as a secret sign or identification mark for the followers of Jesus Christ, Who had been crucified outside
's City walls and raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit! Jerusalem
In some cases these five Greek letters were found inside the ichthus: Iota, Chi, Theta, Upsilon, and Sigma translating into the English as IXOYE, meaning: "Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour." The Greek rendering is, "Iesous Christos, Theou Uios, Soter".
1. Iesous means Saviour, Salvation of God: The angel of the
Lord spoke to Joseph saying: "Ye shall call His name Yeshua (Jesus) for He shall SAVE His people from their sins. (Matt 1:21) The word save in the Greek is 'sozo' which means to save, heal, protect, make well and deliver.
In James 5:14, 15 the Holy Spirit uses this same word ‘sozo’ to announce that Jesus Christ heals the sick in answer to believing prayer! This same truth is brought forth in Isaiah 53: 3-5, Matt. 8:16, 17 and 1 Peter 2: 24. Jesus Saves: Isaiah 7: 14; Luke 2:30; Phil.2: 5-11; Acts 3: 13-16; 4:12; 1 Tim.2: 5.
JESUS ANOINTED MESSIAH:
YESHUA HA MASCHIACH!!
2. Christos means anointed One: Jesus is the Anointed One. Says who?
- Acts 9: 17-20; St. Peter - Matt.16: 13-17; Martha - John 11: 25; Philip - John 1: 40, 41; Nathaniel - John 1: 49; Ethiopian Eunuch - Acts 8: 37; Apollos - Acts 18: 28. St. Paul
3. Theou Uios means God's Son: Jesus is the One and Only Son of God from eternity. He was incarnated - God in human flesh - in order to suffer, bleed and die for the sins of the world and rise again in power over all the power of the Evil One! John 20:30, 31; Rom.1:4; Heb.1:1; 2-12; Matt.3:17; John 8:58; 1 John 2:20; 4:1; 5:24.
4. Soter means Saviour: Jesus is the Only Saviour of the world! Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; John 3: 16,17;Mark 14: 61,62; John 6: 66-69; John 14: 6; 1 Tim.2: 3-5; Heb.1:1-13; Rev.1: 8. God the Father calls His Son God: Heb.1:1-10; Rev.1: 1-10.
St. Paul states emphatically concerning Jesus Christ: "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 Tim.3:16)
"But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light throgh the gospel." (2 Tim.1:10)
JESUS SAID CONCERNING HIMSELF:
“I am the door, by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved.… The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.
“I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd and know My sheep, and am known of Mine.” (John 10: 9-11, 14)
“Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8: 32, 36) – JESUS CHRIST
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is One God and One Mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus.” (1 Tim. 2: 3-6) –
“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) – ST. PETER
THE BIBLE SAYS: “I am the Lord, and there is none else: there is no God beside Me…That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none beside Me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.” (Is. 45: 5, 6)
Jesus Christ declared: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14: 6); “Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy leaden and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11: 28)
HE INVITES: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man will hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in unto him and will sup with him and he with Me.” (Rev. 3: 20)
Open your heart and life to Jesus Christ today, my friend, and you will never be sorry! Amen.
JESUS● CHRIST● GOD’S SON● SAVIOUR!
