Most believers have an unrealistic picture of Jesus Christ in their minds. That picture has been made up by Hollywood and by preachers, people who do not know Jesus Christ at all. Jesus Christ was before all things. All things were made by Him and FOR Him and TO Him and THROUGH Him and IN Him all things hold together. He came to this earth as a man, flesh and blood, like we are and He came to redeem us but the form that He took was not the picture that is presented to us.
The prophet Isaiah wrote about Him in Isaiah 53:2 “He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him. 3He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. 6All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. 7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth. 8By oppression and judgment He was taken away;”
Jesus Christ came to suffer. He came to redeem us, He was a man of sorrows, He was a man of pain. Even though He owned it all and even though He is Lord of lords and King of kings He endured suffering at the hands of sinners, of those whom He created. They rejected Him and they killed His earthly body but Jesus Christ IS ALIVE. He is not a helpless and hapless man, He is God Almighty. His words are terrible words. He is a terrible God and He is coming to judge the earth. He is coming to judge all sinners, all those who rejected Him, who rejected His words, who refused to repent of their sin.
Jesus does not tolerate sin. He does not tolerate disobedience. Jesus Christ Himself died for sin and He will not tolerate it in any person. All sinners who refuse to repent will PERISH. Jesus is coming to judge this earth.
The apostle John had a vision of Him in Revelation 19:11 “And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12And His eyes are a flame of fire, and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself. 13And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. 15And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” – that is Jesus Christ!
He is coming to reign. He is coming to judge the earth. Jesus warned us. He said:”Do not fear them who can kill your body and after that they can do nothing, but fear Him who after He has killed HAS THE POWER TO THROW INTO HELL.” that is Jesus Christ!
Have you met that Jesus? Do you know Him? Do you FEAR Him and do you SERVE Him? If you do not serve Him then you will fall under His wrath. If you do not repent and obey Him then you are not part of His kingdom. Do you know that Jesus and do you follow Him? Because that is the REAL Jesus, not the Hollywood Jesus.
Get to KNOW Jesus, FEAR Him and FOLLOW Him and SERVE Him.
May Jesus bless you.
