KEY SCRIPTURE: John Joh 5:47 KJV” But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?”
The bible is one whole. It was written over one thousand five-hundred-year span yet its message is one. It is all about God’s redemption of mankind. The bible is written by about forty authors across three continents, Africa, Asia and Europe. Despite these long-time intervals, as well as varying authors across three continents it still maintains one message. This reveals that, the bible was basically inspired by one author who is the Holy Ghost. 2nd Timothy 3:16 KJV “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The prophet Moses gave the following prophecy about the Lord Jesus. Deuteronomy 18:18 KJV “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” In Acts 3:22 after apostle Peter had healed the cripple who lay at the gate to the temple, he confirmed what Moses said in Deuteronomy 3:22. Moses taught on atonement and all the sin offerings in Leviticus were all about Jesus Christ.
What do we do with all that we have learnt about Jesus in the above discussions?
1. It teaches us that Jesus who is the last revelation of God to mankind as the Saviour, shows us the heart of the Father. God is always ready to save men from any kind of danger, distress or unpleasant state.
2. It also teaches us that Jesus who is the grand theme of the bible must have the preeminence in all things. Colossians 1:18
3. Thirdly we must announce Him to all men as the only Saviour and the only name given among men whereby, we might be saved.
4. Finally you must love the Lord above every person, thing or state.
Jesus is the only Lord of my life. I am saved from every evil work of darkness. The Lord Jesus has the preeminence in everything I do. Jesus is all that matters to me in this life. He gives meaning to my existence
THOUGHT: WHEN JESUS IS LORD OVER YOU, EVERY OTHER THING SETS UP WELL.
Colossians 1:18 KJV “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
Acts 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.”
