JESUS CHRIST LIVED BEFORE MANGER – John

manger

Jesus Christ was in Existence before His Manger Birth

(Passage: John 1)

 Jesus Christ the Son of God has been in existence before Mary physically gave birth to him at the manger. He was in existence before the creation of the earth. In fact, Christ witnessed inception of the earth, and he also played a part in its creation.

The scripture attested,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and nothing was made without him. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:1-5).

Lesson on the Birth of Jesus Christ and Earth Creation

The life of Jesus Christ did not begin at the manger when Mary gave birth to him. He was the breath of God that made earth creation happened.

It is virtually impossible to separate Jesus Christ from God. He is the breath of God – the voice of God. Jesus was God’s utterance used for the creation of the earth – the Word of God.

Earthly people may consider Jesus Christ as the Son of God, but he is indeed God in human flesh. It is impossible to separate him from God.

Jesus Christ cannot be separated from God, just as a person’s voice cannot be separated from him. In short, Jesus is God! All things were made through him, and nothing else was made without him! Hence, humanity is to declare the Lordship of Jesus Christ and accept him as their Savior.

The condition of receiving the salvation of Jesus Christ is to confess him as the Son of God (God in human flesh). The Bible declares,

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” Romans 10:9-10.

Application Prayer

Pray to Accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you have been in existence before the creation of the earth. You are Christ the Son of God! You are God in human flesh! I declare you as my personal Lord and Savior. I yield my complete life to you, and I will faithfully serve you throughout the days of my life. Please write my name in the book of life, and keep me heavenly worthy. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

THE JUDGMENT OF GOD COMES – Joel

 

 

Christians to Proclaim God’s Salvation

(Passage: Joel 2)

God requires Christians to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ without hesitation. They must inform people about Jesus’ gift of salvation, and also enlighten people of God’s punishment that would come on unrepentant sinners.

God stated through his prophet,

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming, for it is at hand” (Joel 2:1).

 

Consequences of Heaven or Hell

Gospel must be preached with all seriousness stating the consequences that would follow adamant sinners. That is, a call to repentant action must include a serious tone that will warn everyone to live up to God’s standard stating: This present world will remain a temporal home for all people. Everyone will migrate from here to a permanent destination. However, not all people will end at the same place. Some people will end up in heaven while others end up in hell. People who would be qualified for heaven are those that have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ. They are people who have accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Unbelievers will end up in hell fire where there shall be everlasting torment (Matthew 25:41). Hence, anyone who is yet to establish a good relationship with Jesus Christ should not hesitate. He/she should not hesitate but take an important step of salvation before it is too late.

Dear God, please empower me to ceaselessly proclaim your gospel to grant unbelievers their opportunity of salvation. As I preach your word, please grant people receptive mind to repent from their sins. Convict people to receive the salvation of your Son Jesus Christ so that they can be saved. Please let your kingdom work prosper in my hands, and also keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

ADAM LOST SALVATION – Genesis

Genesis – Adam Lost Salvation Opportunity But Jesus Regained It

(Passage: Genesis 1,2,3)

God is the father of all creations. All things in existence listen to him, and they obey his instructions. However, God shared the same authority with Adam and Eve (first man and first woman) immediately after creation. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve lost their golden opportunity due to sin.

However, Jesus Christ regains the same opportunity and he gives the privilege to his followers. Therefore, anyone who believes in Jesus Christ has dominion over all situations. All believers are empowered to rule their world. All children of God retain the right to command and possess their goodness in the land of the living. Hallelujah!

God created all things by himself. He called all things into existence – through his divine authority. The scripture said,

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light” (Genesis 1:1-3).

prayerApplication Prayer

In the name of Jesus Christ, I regain my victory over Satan. Since I am a child of God, I command all situations to work to my advantage. I take dominion over both visible and invisible situations, and I command all knees to bow in the name of Jesus Christ. I confidently possess the gates of my enemies, and I reclaim all my lost opportunities in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
