JESUS SAID IT....

I have been on a search for "TRUTH"...HA...the words of TRUTH!  Oh that I may "KNOW HIM"...TRUTH!  Truth is not a theology, doctrine, or rules of the "knowledge of good and evil"  Truth is a WHOM...JESUS!  Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:.

We hear a lot of teaching today about "Identity Crisis" in the Body...because usually through tragic circumstances or whispers of the enemy, people have been led to believe a lie of who they are "IN CHRIST".  But I believe in order to know who we are In Christ, we have to "Know Christ" and who He is ...his essesnce and every detail of the fullness of the Godhead. 

If we re-read the New Testament without a religious filter, and look for the identity of Jesus in the scriptures, we will read that JESUS is always pointing people back to Himself.  Interesting that Jesus would build his church on the revelation that HE is THE CHRIST, the son of the living God!  In Matthew 16:13, we see where Jesus asked a quetion,...13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”.  Simon Peter answered it with the revelation he had of who Jesus was... 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  In a lot of stories we see where JESUS was always declaring himself .... John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.  That when an evil and "faithless" generation "doubted" who He was...he stated that all that is WRITTEN in THIS BOOK will be all that you need to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God... John 20:31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.  No other "MIRACLE" other than the "Ascended Christ" was needed to "BELIEVE".  Jesus went into places that NO RELIGIOUS zelot or Pharisee would dare go, to meet a woman at a well.  This woman was sitting in front of TRUTH! She said in John 4:25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”  Again, we see Jesus pointing people to HIMSELF as He responded to her ... John 4:26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He."  

So as we continue to SEARCH and SEEK after TRUTH, Jesus will continually point to Himself, that HE is ALL WE NEED.  Colossians 2:For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.  The Holy Spirit will continue to point to JESUS!  Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE!!  John 14:Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

So if you begin to question who you are, first discover who HE is...and IN HIM you will be complete.

If you wonder "what" to preach...you've gotten off track...PREACH HIM!!!  Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Paul said it best when he spoke in Philippians 3:Yet indeed I also count ALL things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

OH THAT I MAY "KNOW HIM"!!!  This is my heart's cry...

"Christ is:  your Shepherd, your Advocate, your Mediator, your Bridgroom, your Conqueror, your Lion, your Lamb, your sacrifice, your manna, your smitten Rock, your living water, your food, your drink, your good and abundant land, your dwelling place, your Sabbath, your new moon, your Jubilee, your new wine, your feast, your aroma, your anchor, your wisdom, your peace, your comfort, your Healter, your joy, your glory, your power, your strength, your wealth, your victory, your redemption, your Prophet, your High Priest, your kinsman redeemer, your teacher, your guide, your liberator, your deliverer, your Prince, your Captain, your vision, your sight, your beloved, your way, your truth, your life, your author, your finisher, your beiginning, your end, your age, your eternity--your all and all. 

Christians don't follow Christianity; they follow Christ.

Christians don't preach themselves; they proclaim Christ.

Christians don't preach about Christ; they simply preach Christ.

Christians don't shout from the rooftops, "Come to church"; they shout form the mountains, "Jesus Christ is born--COME to CHRIST"!

Christians don't point people to core values; a doctrine, traditions, 12-step programs; they point them to the incarnated, crucified, resurected, ascended, enthroned, exalted, triuphant, glorified, reigning Lord--Jesus of Nazareth, the King, the Messiah--the CHRIST beyond the tomb."  "Jesus Manifesto"

JESUS....JESUS.....JESUS....HE is ALL we need to discover who WE REALLY ARE!!
