TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Come to Jesus and see His glory, His manifest presence, and you will begin to understand more and more just who He is. He is not hiding from you, but He is revealing Himself to you in ways you could never have imagined.
JESUS JUST LOOKS GOOD
I love the way the Bible describes Jesus and how awesome He is. I mean, He really is the most amazing person ever in the universe.
Just look at the names He is called and what He calls Himself…
The First and Last, the Alpha and Omega
“Alpha” and “Omega” are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. This means He is the beginning of all things articulated and the very end of all things expressed.
John chapter 1 tells us that before leaving His home in Heaven to become a man, Jesus’ name was not Jesus. It was “The Word.” The Word is the creator side of the Trinity who spoke everything into existence. His voice – His name – literally make molecules into matter. That’s a mind-blower for sure!
He is described as the Bright and Morning Star in Revelation, the Sun of Righteousness in Malachi and the Rising Sun in Luke. John calls Jesus the true Light, as does Isaiah. Darkness cannot compete with Him.
The Righteous One
Acts 3:14 and Jeremiah 26:6 are among the verses that tout Jesus’ righteousness.
The I Ams
There are times when Jesus describes Himself. These are called the “I Am” sayings of the Gospel of John. When Moses asked the voice in the burning bush on Mt. Sinai its name, the response was simple and direct: “I Am who I Am.” He wasn’t created — He just is! How cool is that? It’s also cool that He gave us other ways to know Him by declaring that I Am…
The Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Gate, the Good Shepherd, the Resurrection and the Life, the Way, the Truth and the Life, and the True Vine.
The facets and nuances of who and what Jesus is, is like skipping a stone across the ocean. It’s impossible. But when you start to dig into who He is to you — how He works in your life and how He speaks to you — you will find yourself advancing to new heights.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO DIG INTO JESUS AND EXPERIENCE THE NEXT LEVEL OF HIS GOODNESS. FIND OUT WHO HE IS TO YOU AND HOW HE WORKS AND SPEAKS IN YOUR LIFE. WRITE IT DOWN AND MEDITATE ON IT. YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID!
