The Gloves are Off
It's amazing to read of Jesus speaking about Himself from the Old Testament. In the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 24, after His resurrection, He showed the Disciples that were there from Moses to then, all about Himself that were written.
Isaiah 59:16-21 "16 And He saw that there was no man, And was astonished that there was no one to intercede; Then His own arm brought salvation to Him, And His righteousness upheld Him.
17 He put on righteousness like a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.
18 According to their deeds, so He will repay,
Wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies;
To the coastlands He will make recompense.
19 So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west
And His glory from the rising of the sun,
For He will come like a rushing stream
Which the wind of the Lord drives.
20 “A Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” declares the Lord.
21 “As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the Lord: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says the Lord, “from now and forever.”"
As Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal so is this generation challenged. How much more so. There's billions who are divided. When it suits them they want God to save them. When it's contrary to what they want they want Him out of their lives.
Look either Jesus is who He said He was or He was a liar, and deserved death for claiming to be God. The proof is in His resurrection. The Father promised that if He would endure the cross that Jesus would have the authority to take up His life again. Jesus obeyed. Death and sin were defeated.
Either the lies of this world are real and true or Jesus Christ is God. You must choose. There are hundreds more Scriptures that I have found over the last year that point to Jesus as being the Christ. Just as He taught those Disciples.
Before you make up your mind that He isn't real or isn't God. Quit making excuses and get a Bible and read it for yourself. Quit going by what the world says. Make up your own mind.
God made it clear to me back in 1975 and I have never regretted it. He can turn on the lights of understanding in you too.
Do you REALLY want to find yourself in between two opinions on the day you have to face Him face-to-face? In that day if you have not put your faith in Christ Jesus alone for Salvation it will be too late.
The challenge is on. The gloves are off.
Look it up for yourself.
