MESSIAH

Perhaps the most controversial figure in history is Jesus Christ. Have you ever wondered why? In his excellent book, Mere Christianity, 20th century British author C.S. Lewis made this statement: “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him (that is, Christ): ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral […]

“Crucifixion to the Resurrection”

The very center point of human history is punctuated by one man whose life had a greater effect on the human race than anyone who has ever lived. Although Jesus Christ was not born exactly in the year -0-, nor did He die in that year, the timeline of history wraps around His life. The time before Christ is traditionally […]

Christ’s Journey from the Cross to the Throne

by Jake Geier The very center point of human history is punctuated by one man whose life had a greater effect on the human race than anyone who has ever lived. Although Jesus Christ was not born exactly on the year -0-, nor did He die on that year, the timeline of history wraps around His life. The time before […]

AUTHOR and FINISHER…MESSIAH….Part Thirteen

A thread which begins in Genesis and carries through the entire Bible has to do with God’s intervention on behalf of the fallen human race through the blood sacrifice of the Messiah. The story line which begins in the very first chapter of the Holy Scriptures is continued to its completion in the very last chapter of the last book […]

AUTHOR and FINISHER…MESSIAH…Part Twelve

Polytheism will continue to be brought up by those who are uncomfortable with this subject, and the question is asked: Is the God we worship one God of many gods?

He is the Almighty, and […]

The Church That Lost its First Love After the Messiah revealed Himself to John the Apostle in the first chapter of Revelation, He gives him a message for seven specific churches of the many in existence at that time in what today is modern Turkey.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 8

In Part 7 we saw that the blood of Jesus not only made it possible for us to be forgiven–totally forgiven, of the many individual acts of sin that we commit, but also the corruption of the sin nature that we are all born with at birth. We also learned that not only did Jesus die in our place on […]

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 7

Earlier in this study we read a Scripture that undoubtedly offended the people He was teaching, especially the Scribes and Pharisees, more than anything else He said. I would like to take another look at it at this time. It is found in John 6:53-59: Then Jesus said unto them: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the […]

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 6

We read in Scripture many things that man, in his limited capacity to understand, will find difficult to accept as truth. One of the most common is the birth of Messiah Jesus to a young Jewish virgin named Mary. Many see this as nothing more than a religious fantasy or fairy tale. Others throughout the centuries have said that this […]

BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 5

In previous parts of this series on the Blood of Jesus we have looked at a sampling of Scriptures from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. It was not an exhaustive sample but gave us an idea of the importance of blood in the storyline God gives us from the creation of Adam through the return of Jesus as KING […]
