CHRIST JESUS, WHAT YOU DONâT KNOW
by Eugene Lopatynsky
3/19/2021 / Prophecy
Is that important? Father God said, that “…Whosoever beliveth on HIM shall not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16. That means BELIEVING WHO Christ Jesus IS, why He came, and what He says. The belief in Christ Jesus is your ONLY CHANCE OF SALVATION. How important is that?
Who is Christ Jesus?
Demonized people use His name as a swearword.
FULLNESS OF GODHEAD DWELLETH BODILY IN CHRIST JESUS
- 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, Counselor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
(Prophecy eight centuries before the Messiah: That He will be a man. But his name shall be God.)
- Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
- For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
- And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
(How do you like that for credentials? Was this ever claimed for Buddha or Mohammed or anyone?
CRIST JESUS IS CREATOR
- 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
- 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.
Who/What is the Word? Verse 3 and 14 says it is a He. He became a human being, the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, seen by the apostles. See also Rev.10:13 and Acts 13:33. Jesus Christ is the Word.
Rephrased you get:
"In the beginning was Christ Jesus, and Jesus was with Jehovah and Jesus was Jehovah. All things were created by Jesus…."
- Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
(Firstborn may refer to resurrection, Acts 13:33, or to rank among living things, or to just being before any creation at all)
- 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.
- 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;
- Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
- Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
- For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
- And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
(Son, begotten, may refer to resurrection, Acts 13:33. To design and construct a computer you obtain an artifact. When you beget a son, you DUPLICATE yourself)
- And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
- But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom
(Who is heir of all things? Who made the worlds? Let all angels of God worship whom? Only God is to be worshipped. What does this make Christ Jesus?
CHRIST JESUS IS AN ASSOCIATE AND EQUAL WITH FATHER GOD?
- Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
(Your apprentice is below you; your master is above you; your FELLOW is your associate and equal. Father God says here that Jesus is His associate and equal. But that is NOT equal in authority – Father God is greater than ALL)
(4 ) ON THE HIGHEST LEVEL IS FATHER GOD. HE IS ALONE ON THAT LEVEL, WITHOUT EQUAL.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I GO UNTO THE FATHER: FOR MY FATHER IS GREATERTHAN I.
MY FATHER, WHICH GAVE THEM ME, IS GREATER THAN ALL; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
ON THE HIGHEST LEVEL IS FATHER GOD. HE IS ALONE ON THAT LEVEL, WITHOUT EQUAL.
(5)THE “I AM” OF JESUS IS THE “I AM” OF YEHOVAH
John 8: 58
- Jesus said unto them, Verily, -verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.
(This is the “I AM” of Jehovah!)
- I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM, ye shall die in your sins.
(The King James adds "he"- as "I am he". But The Greek Tx. Receptus does not have a "he". Could this have been written especially to Jehovah’s Witnesses?)
- And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
- Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
(Did Buddha, Zoroaster, Mohammed or anyone ever say that of himself? How could "religions" be equal?)
This passage is being deleted or mutilated now in many “modern language bibles”
CAN ANYONE IMAGINE LOSING THE, ONLY, ULTIMATE TREASURE, SUCH AS THIS? LOSING CHRIST JESUS?
To those still searching for answers and peace, may I say, search for the only truth and remedy that exists, for the God that loves you, who made all life and who has made, and will make again, a beautiful world.
Any CONCEIVABLE sacrifice in this life is worthwhile to find the BIBLICAL Christ Jesus and to belong to Him! If you want Him, pray now with me, "DEAREST LORD JESUS, FORGIVE ME MY SINS. I REJECT ALL NON-BIBLICAL RELIGION. COME INTO MY LIFE AND BE THE RULER OF MY LIFE. HELP ME TO LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY AND TO OBEY YOU WITH ALL MY STRENGTH AND TO READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY, EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE."
If you do this, and mean it, with an open heart, this prayer will never fail. It will become the greatest thing you will ever have, and it will last forever. Even in this life it will be the greatest happiness you'll know, and a light upon your path. Conversely, to FAIL in this, it will be the GREATEST DISASTER you will ever have, both here and hereafter.
Something most especial is waiting for those who seek the immense goodness of our Lord. God Himself said, that "The ear has not heard and no eye has ever seen, neither can man even imagine the HAPPINESS which God prepared for those who love him" (1 Cor. 2:9, paraphrased, if you please)!
