Our Great God Jesus Christ
Today, let's consider our great God Jesus Christ. Pictured above we see a beautiful rainbow and clouds that Jesus created. Job 26:7 says He (Jesus) stretcheth out the north over the empty place; and hangeth the earth upon nothing; He bindeth up the waters in His thick clouds, and the cloud is not rent under them. Wow, water weighs 800 times more than air; yet it is lifted against the force of gravity, held in suspension above the earth in clouds, moved to definite locations, and brought down as rain.
How incredible that clouds can hold so much water and not flood this earth. This is because that after Noah was saved from the flood, God promised by a rainbow not to flood this earth. Our God Jesus said at Genesis 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
After looking at the above picture, only a fool would say God did not create the beautiful rainbow and the clouds that hold large amounts of water without breaking and releasing the floodwaters onto the earth. How heathenish and insane for anyone to say that all things in the world are just the result of a fortuitous concourse of atoms. Friend the bible is the truth and proclaims that our God Jesus created everything at Colossians 1:16 For by Him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him, and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
Pictured above we see that John 1:1 proclaims Jesus to be God. Only a fool would say that Jesus is not God because Psalm 14:1 proclaims The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Let's compare two scriptures from the bible proving that Jesus is the Word and God. First say John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Now let's see who the Word is that is God by saying Revelation 19:13 And He (Jesus) was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God. Jesus is the Word and Jesus is God. Get saved now and repent, decide to stop sinning, make Jesus your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again.
And here's another scripture proclaiming Jesus to be the true God. Say 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. In other words, if you want eternal life where you live forever in peace, receive by faith with your heart our God Jesus. How foolish was the atheist that asked the judge to make a holiday celebrating atheists who deny God. The atheist told the judge christians have Christmas and Easter; therefore atheists should be given a day to celebrate atheism. The judge replied, you already have a holiday for atheists called April Fool's Day because the bible says The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
And what a blessing that Jesus created the stars called Pleiades, Orion, Arcturus, and Mazzaroth pictured above. And beyond this Psalm 147:4 says He (Jesus) telleth the number of the stars, He calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord and of great power; His understanding is infinite. Wow, Jesus knows the names of all the stars and knows the exact number of all the billions of stars in this universe. Only a fool would say that our God Jesus did not create these beautiful stars and galaxies.
Job asked every person who said there is no God at Job 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleaides (a cluster of stars in heaven)? or loose the bands of Orion (a distant star surrounded by an impenetrable band)? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth (the stars of the zodiac with 36 constellations) in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons (the star over the north pole with his sons which are three little stars in it's tail)? Job answered these questions at Job 9:9 declaring that our God Jesus maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south; which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. And then Paul said at Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God. How unsearchable are His judgments, and his ways past finding out. For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things, to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
And think about these facts. No man can guide Arcturus with his sons because this blazing sun, 22 times larger than our sun, moves through space like a rocket gliding forward at over 5000 miles a minute guided only by our God Jesus. And only Jesus could create Orion that is so vast that its glory reaches out some trillion miles in all directions. And our God Jesus also made the milky way that is so big that it would take light one hundred million years to travel from one end of it to the other end.
And then our God Jesus created this earth with its beautiful high mountains cloaked with clouds and capped with diadems of snow. And then our God Jesus decided to carpet this earth with loveliness by creating grass, herbs, fruitbearing trees, and forests. Right now rejoice and praise our God Jesus as you say Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Also Jesus said at Psalm 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
Since I have proven today by the bible that Jesus is God; now I will also prove that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one. When you get saved and proclaim Jesus as your God, you also receive the Holy Spirit. Take time to compare two scriptures below that define the words advocate and Comforter to both be parakletos.
1 John 2:1 says My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate (perakletos) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And John 14:26 says But the Comforter (perakletos), which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. This proves that when anyone receives our advocate Jesus as God, they also receive the Comforter Spirit at the time of salvation. The advocate Jesus and the Comforter Holy Spirit are one and the same (both defined in greek to be perakletos). In other words the Holy Ghost is Jesus our advocate who defends us from the devil's accusations.
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one. If I take three cups and fill them with water, there are three different cups but the same water. If you get Jesus, you have the Father, and also have the Spirit the moment you are saved. You don't have to work after salvation to get the Holy Ghost. Romans 8:9 says But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. It's impossible to have Jesus and not have the Holy Spirit. Salvation is not progressive; Salvation is instant. When anyone receives Jesus, they also receive God and the Spirit at the same time of their salvation.
I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth.
