Alright, today let's learn the five I's about Jesus. Jesus is immortal, invincible, invisible, intimate, and indignant. John 4:24 contains the five I's about Jesus saying God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. I'll discuss these five I's separately that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes everywhere.
First we see that Jesus is immortal and lives forever because Jesus as God is a Spirit and you can't kill a Spirit. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. And according to 1 Timothy 6:15, Jesus is the only one who has immortality saying Which in His times He shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords (Jesus) who only hath immortality.
Friend reading this anywhere, since only Jesus has immortality, get saved right now and receive immortal eternal life by making Jesus your God. Just repent and stop sinning, confess Jesus as your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. When anyone gets saved, they receive immortality defined as deathlessness and never die.
The man in the picture above created a time machine that could go forward or back in time. A man would sit in this time machine and you'd hear woo, woo, woo, and he'd go back in time a million years and wake up in the stone age with the dinosaurs, or he'd go forward in time a million years and see flying cars with people in funny hats.
Now if someone could make a time machine that could go back in time a million years or go forward in time a million years, they would find Jesus as God. When they got out of the time machine, they would find Jesus sitting there with His arms folded saying Where have you been? I inhabit eternity. Isaiah 57:15 says For thus saith the high and lofty One (Jesus) that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to receive the heart of the contrite ones.
Next we see that Jesus is invincible because no one call kill a Spirit. Also according to the picture above nothing and no devil can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord because Jesus is invincible. Romans 8:38 says For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And friends if you have Jesus as your God in your life, you are invincible and triumph over any trouble in this world. Right now say 2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place. The bible says at Colossians 2:15 that Jesus spoiled principalities and powers; made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Also Jesus said at Matthew 28:18 All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. With invincible Jesus friends, you can charge the devil with a squirt gun pictured above and always defeat the ole sleufoot devil.
Jesus is the champion of eternity and no one can ever challenge Jesus to a fight and win. Jesus is invincible and undefeatable. The devil is so stupid that during Jesus' millenial reign, the devil will challenge Jesus to a fight. Revelation 20:10 tells us how Jesus will defeat the devil saying And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Next we see that Jesus is invisible because Jesus as God is a Spirit and according to Luke 24:39 a spirit hath not flesh and bones. A spirit is invisible. According to 1 Timothy 1:17, Jesus is invisible saying Now unto the King (Jesus) eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen. Also, Colossians 1:15 says that Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God.
OK, since Jesus is invisible, it takes faith to know our Lord Jesus. Hebrews 11:6 says But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Let's be like Moses who believed the invisible God choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. Hebrews 11:27 says By faith he (Moses) forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible.
Friends, even though Jesus is invisible and we can't see Him, we know by faith that Jesus is with us always because Jesus always answers our prayers and strengthens us daily to win souls. Just walk daily with 20/20 spiritual vision instead of your natural vision. Be encouraged; Jesus said at Hebrews 13:5 I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
OK, next we see that Jesus is intimate. John 4:23 tells us But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. You see Jesus wants to be intimate with us and seeketh saints to worship Him daily. Because Jesus seeks intimacy, we should all say the above pictured bible verse at Philippians 3:10 That I may know Him (Jesus), and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.
Neighbor anywhere, the saints are the bride of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:25 says Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it. Marriages are blessed when wives speak daily to their husbands and husbands daily pay attention to their wives. Since we as saints are married to Jesus, we need to daily worship and speak intimately to Jesus. When was the last time you worshipped and talked with your husband the Lord Jesus? Philippians 4:6 says Be careful for nothing (don't worry), but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, we see that Jesus is indignant. According to John 4:24 Jesus is indignant and says that we MUST worship Him in spirit and in truth. Since Jesus is the truth, the only way to the Father for salvation is through Jesus. Pictured above Acts 4:12 says neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Also, 1 Timothy 2:5 tells us For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Buddha, Mohammed, mother Mary, and good works won't get you to heaven. You must accept Jesus as your God to go to heaven. Jesus said at John 10:9 I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Jesus also said at Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else.
