The Marvellous Life of the Truth (JESUS)
Jesus Existed before the Foundation of the World:
He is the Word of God & the Divine Creator of all things:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of me -John 1:1-4; Verse 14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am -John 8:58
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdo– Heb 1:8; Verse 10: And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds (Heb 1:1-2)
For by him 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 (COL 1:16-17).
PROPHETS FORETOLD JESUS’ LIFE ON EARTH
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel Isaiah 7:14
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end (Isaiah 9:6-7).
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting Micah 5:2
JESUS LEFT HEAVEN TO BECOME AN ORDINARY MAN!
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross (Phil 2:5-8)
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me (John 8:42).
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed(Isaiah 53:3-5)
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven (1Cor 15:47)
Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me (Heb 10:5)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12)
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent (John 17:3)
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life- 1John 5:12 (Spiritually speaking a soul that has not regenerated in Christ is dead while yet alive!. The soul house the spirit!)
JESUS PURPOSE ON EARTH
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10)
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief (1Tim 1:15)
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45)
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law; To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons Gal 4:4-5
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved John 3:17
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him 1John 4:9
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice John 18:37
THE DIVINE BIRTH OF JESUS
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth; To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women Luke 30-36 Verses 1:26-28; And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God; v31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS; v35 The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God;….v37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
