Pictured above we see the greatest book called the Bible, The Word Of God who is Jesus. The bible and Jesus is above and beyond all books as the river is beyond the rill in reach, as the sun is above and beyond the candle in brightness, as the steel girder is above and beyond the wisp of straw in strength, as the ocean is beyond the mill pond in treasure and grandeur, and as the grapevine is beyond the bramble in fruitbearing.
The bible and Jesus is above and beyond all books ever written past, present, and future as Niagara Falls is above and beyond the mill pond in power; as the Sequoia tree is above and beyond the roadside weed in majesty; as the wings of an eagle are beyond the wings of a sparrow in strength; as a tree is beyond a twig in fruitbearing; as a cannon is beyond a popgun in far reaching power; and as a skyscraper is beyond a dugout in height.
Song of Solomon 5:10 speaks about Jesus who is the Word of God saying My beloved (Jesus) is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. Jesus proclaimed at Revelation 22:16 I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. According to these two scriptures, if we line up ten thousand stars, Jesus, the bright and morning star is the chiefest and brightest among ten thousand stars. Praise you Lord Jesus you truly are Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
Jesus proclaimed at John 17:17 that the Word is truth. The Word of God is not an imaginative fictional novel or phantasmagoric mirage beyond the horizon. Jesus who is the Word is the way, the truth, and the life. Pilate asked Jesus what is truth; Wow, Pilate failed to realize that the Truth Jesus was standing right before him. Right now, unlike Pilate receive the Truth Jesus as your God and get saved. Repent and decide to stop sinning, confess Jesus as your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose again.
The Word Jesus will last forever and is the answer. Psalm 119:89 proclaims For ever, O Lord, thy Word is settled in heaven. Psalm 12:6 also says The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Since the beginning of time, many people have tried to remove and eliminate any memory of the bible. But the bible and Jesus have survived and will remain forever billions of years into the future. No enemy will ever steal one flower from the bible's wondrous garden; dilute one drop of honey from the bible's abundant hive; break one string on its thousand string harp; drown one sweet word in infidel ink; make dim one ray of its perpetual light; stay its triumphant progress by so much as one step; or shorten its life by so much as one brief hour.
THE BIBLE WILL ALWAYS BE THE PILGRIM'S STAFF, THE PILOT'S COMPASS,
AND THE SOLDIER'S SWORD, AND MORE BESIDES FOREVERMORE
BLESS YOU LORD JESUS FOR YOUR WORD
COMPARING THE SUBLIMITY (EXCELLENCY) AND SIMPLICITY OF JESUS
Next, let's see that Jesus is both the sublime excellent God and also a man sharing our experiences on this earth. Jesus is God come in the flesh. Hebrews 2:14 says Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
Even though Jesus was the mighty God, He loved lost sinners and became a man to destroy the devil and give everyone an opportunity to be saved and live in peace forevermore. Isaiah 57:15 explained this by saying For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy (Jesus), 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 revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Note the following comparisons about how Jesus is both sublime (excellent) with simplicity. Jesus is sublime as an eagle flying peacefully beyond the reach of anyone, yet having the simplicity of a little sparrow that twitters under the eaves, or plays with its mates on the sidewalks by a village street. Jesus is sublime as a mighty ocean at full tide, yet is softly tender as ripples that whisper on a calm beach. Jesus is sublime as a mountain grandeur, yet has the simplicity of modest violets blooming in the valley.
How excellent was Jesus when as a babe heaven hung out its brightest star to mark His birthplace. How excellent was Jesus when He startled the wise men in the temple being only twelve years old. How excellent was Jesus when He spoke so marvelously that officers sent to arrest Him returned without Him, giving as their excuse for not bringing Him "Never man spake like this man".
How excellent was Jesus when He arose from sleep in a tempest tossed boat and made the raging waves to lie down like sleeping dogs and the winds howling like maniacs to whisper likes babes softly in sleep. How excellent was Jesus when He walked on the waves as though they were floors of opal and amethyst and emeralds.
How excellent was Jesus when leprosy fled from His presence where twisted limbs became straight at just His touch. How excellent was Jesus when He refused to come down from the cross. How excellent was Jesus when He arose from the dead, the firstfruits of them that slept. And how excellent was Jesus when He entered the upper room, the doors being shut where the disciples were for fear of the Jews and said Peace be unto you.
Even though Jesus was so excellent, Jesus loved lost sinners and became a man who died on the cross to save lost sinners. Think about this: Jesus as God could have remained in heaven and let all mankind be lost and go to hell. But God loved us all and sent His Son Jesus to this earth to suffer and die on a cross and give anyone the opportunity to be saved with peace forevermore.
Even though Jesus was so excellent, Jesus humbled Himself and said to little Zaccheaus in the tree top, Come down for today I must abide in thine house. When Jesus met the wicked publican tax collector Matthew, He humbly said Follow me. When Jesus called the disciples James, Peter, and John, He humbly said Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And Jesus humbly made Himself known to the two men on the road to Emmaus by just breaking bread.
JESUS CHRIST AT CHRISTUS GARDENS IN GATLINBURG TENNESSEE
Pictured above we see one of the tourist attractions in Gatlinburg, Tennessee (A sculpture of Jesus Christ at Christus Gardens). Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a tourist city by the Smokey Mountains with a population of only 1764 people, having many beautiful scenes to photograph. Note though that the most photographed site in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is the sculptured head of Jesus Christ pictured above in Christus gardens.
This spectacular marble figure of the Saviour Jesus Christ is sculpted in such a way that the eyes appear to look in every direction. Regardless of where you stand, Jesus' eyes are upon you. Do a search on youtube for Jesus Christ at Christus gardens Gatlinburg, Tennessee and notice how Jesus' eyes always watch you.
Hebrews 4:13 says Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His (Jesus) sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with which we have to do. Proverbs 15:3 says The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Luke 12:2 says For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be made known. Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
His eyes are on the sparrow and He watches over me. Matthew 10:29 says Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. Then Luke 12:6 goes on to say Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Friends everywhere, Jesus watches over you and will always take care of you. If Jesus cares for the little sparrows, Jesus will care for you friend.
