KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:37 KJV” And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.”
God our father has testified about His Son throughout the scriptures. The bible is basically a testimony of the Father about His Son Jesus. The testimony about Jesus is a revelation of God’s redemption for mankind. It is the revelation of God the Saviour. This is the name of our Lord Jesus. His name is “Jehoshua” in Hebrew. This name means Jehovah is Saviour or Salvation. The bible is a progressive revelation of God and His ways and acts. He revealed HIMSELF to Abraham in Genesis 17: 1 as the Almighty or “Shaddai” in Hebrew. He revealed Himself to Moses as “Yahweh” or Jehovah (Exodus 6:2-3) This name Yahweh or Jehovah is the English form of the Hebrew non vowel form of the name “YHWH.”
God revealed Himself to the various individuals at specific occasions as follows
1. Jehovah Rapha -The Lord the Healer. Exodus 15:26
2. Jehovah Nissi -The Lord our Banner. Exodus 17:13-15
3. Jehovah Mekadishcum -The Lord that sanctifies. Exodus 31:13
4. Jehovah Shalom – The Lord is peace. Judges 6:24
5. Jehovah Saboath – The Lord of host.
6. Jehovah Tsedkenu -The Lord our Righteousness. Jeremiah 33:16
7. Jehovah Shammah- The Lord is present.
We realise that God has revealed Himself in ancient times under various names. In these last days, He has revealed Himself as the Saviour. Act 4:12 KJV” Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Our Lord Jesus is not just a lesser being to the father, but indeed one with the Father. (John 10:30) He is the Lord the Saviour. This is the last and final revelation of God to men.
All men are to receive this final revelation of God in their hearts. John 5:38 KJV “And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.” This is the era of God’s great salvation of mankind. If men would accept God who has come to us as the Saviour, there would be great peace and restoration from all kinds of calamities and dangers 2nd Corinthians 6:2 KJV (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.). God’s testimony about His Son is all about His Salvation. Receive Him into your life and give an end to the life of pain and sorrow.
THOUGHT:IN JESUS, GOD SAVES ALL MEN
2nd Corinthians 5:19 KJV” To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
Hebrews 2:3 KJV “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;”
