Who Jesus Is

The Jesus You Can't Ignore audio

The Glories Of Christ

One of the great tenets of Scripture is the claim that Jesus Christ is completely sufficient for all matters of life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4)! He is sufficient for creation (Colossians 1:16-17), salvation (Hebrews 10:10-12), sanctification (Ephesians 5:26-27), and glorification (Romans 8:30). So pure is He that there is no blemish, stain, spot of sin, defilement, lying, deception, corruption, error, or imperfection (1 Peter 1:18-20).

So complete is He that there is not other God besides Him (Isaiah 45:5); He is the only begotten Son (John 1:14; John 1:18); all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Him (Colossians 2:3); the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily in Him (Colossians 2:9); He is heir of all things (Hebrews 1:2); He created all thing and all things were made by Him, through Him, and for Him (Colossians 1:16); He upholds all things by the word of His power (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3); He is the firstborn of all creation (Colossians 1:15); He is the exact representation of God (Hebrews 1:3).

He is the only mediator between God and man; He is the Sun that enlightens; the Physician that heals; the Wall of Fire that defends; the Friend that comforts; the Pearl that enriches; the Ark that supports; and the Rock to sustain under the heaviest of pressures; He is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty on high (Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 8:1); He is better than the angels (Hebrews 1:4-14); better than Moses; better than Aaron; better than Joshua; better than Melchizedek; better than all the prophets; greater than Satan (Luke 4:1-12); and stronger than death (1 Corinthians 15:55).

He has no beginning and no end (Revelation 1:17-18); He is the spotless Lamb of God; He is our peace (Ephesians 2:14); He is our Hope (1 Timothy 1:1); He is our Life (Colossians 3:4); He is the living and true Way (John 14:6); He is the strength of Israel (1 Samuel 15:29); He is the Root and Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star (Revelation 22:16); He is Faithful and True (Revelation 19:11); He is the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-2); He is Captain of our Salvation (Hebrews 2:10); He is the Champion; He is the Elect One (Isaiah 42:1); He is the Apostle and High-Priest of our confession (Hebrews 3:1); He is the Righteous Servant (Isaiah 53:11).

He is the Lord of Hosts, the Redeemer – the Holy One of Israel, the God of the whole earth (Isaiah 54:5); He is the Man of Sorrows (Isaiah 53:3); He is the Light; He is the Son of Man (Matthew 20:28); He is the Vine; He is the Bread of Life; He is the Door; He is Lord (Philippians 2:10-13); He is Prophet, Priest and King (Hebrews 1:1-3); He is our Sabbath rest (Hebrews 4:9); He is our Righteousness (Jeremiah 23:6) He is the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, (Isaiah 9:6); He is the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4); He is Lord God of hosts; He is Lord of the nations; He is the Lion of Judah; the Living Word; the Rock of Salvation; the Eternal Spirit; He is the Ancient of Days; Creator and Comforter; Messiah; and He is the great I AM (John 8:58)!
