CONSIDER THE FACTS: An Essay on The Incomparable, Glorious Christ: Messiah, Saviour, and King of all kings . . .

More than nineteen hundred years ago, there was a Man born contrary to the laws of life. This Man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. He did not travel extensively. Only once did He cross the boundary of the country in which He lived; - that was during His exile in childhood.

He possessed neither wealth nor influence. His relatives were inconspicuous, having neither training nor formal education.

In infancy He startled a king who pursued Him in fear; in childhood He puzzled doctors and wisemen with His knowledge and amazing wisdom; in manhood He put to open shame the evil and hypocrisy of His day.

Incredibly, He lived a scant 33 years before dying a horrible, agonizing, public execution, condemned and forsaken as a fraud and a rebel.

He never wrote a book, yet all the libraries of the county could not hold the books that have been written about Him. He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the theme for more songs and symphonies than all others combined. He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students. He never marshaled an army, drafted a soldier, or fired a gun; and yet no leader, living or dead, ever had more devoted volunteers, or conquerored more enemy territory than this one Man.

Once a week the wheels of commerce cease their turning and vast multitudes wend their way to worshipping assemblies to pay hommage and respect to Him. In fact, to this very day most of the civilized world divides History into two distinct periods of time: before and after the appearance of this Man.

Truly, the names and rememberance of many past, proud statesmen of Greece, Rome, and other empires have come and gone. The names of many scientists, philosophers, and theologians have all come and gone. But the name of this Man abounds more and more. Though time has spread nineteen hundred years between the people of this generation and the scene of His crucifixion: yet does He still live. Herod could not destroy Him, the grave could not hold Him, the full fury of hell itself could not prevail against Him.

Today He stands forth upon the very highest pinnacle of Divine Glory:

Exalted by God, acknowledged by angels,

feared by demons, and adored by countless saints as

The Eternal, Everlasting Saviour,

The Lord Jesus Christ, King, Creator, Sustainer,

and Ruler of all that Is or ever shall be. Amen*


We are either going to be forever with Him,
or forever without Him.

It was the incomparable Christ who said:

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and
burdened, and I will give you rest.”
(Matthew 11:28)

“I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
(John 14:6)

There is one God and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
(1 Timothy 2:5)

Amen and AMEN!

Philippians 2:

9 Therefore God raised Him to the highest place and gave Him the name above every name; 10 that in honor of the Name given Yeshua, every knee will bow - in heaven, on earth and under the earth 11 and every tongue will acknowledge that Yeshua The Messiah is ADONAI - to the glory of God the Father.
