He Is The Infinite, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Gracious, Just, Holy And Unchangeable “I AM!”

James Smith 90x115by James Smith

"The Love of Christ!"

The Lord Jesus Christ is God–possessed of all divine attributes, and entitled to all divine honors. He is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit–God over all, and blessed for evermore! He is naturally, essentially, perfectly, and eternally possessed of everything peculiar to Deity.

He owes His existence to none. He says, "I am Jehovah, and beside Me there is no Savior!" He is God–and there is no other. There is no other name given under Heaven, or among men, whereby we can be saved. He is the Rock of Ages. He is the infinite, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, gracious, just, holy, and unchangeable I AM!

Angels worship Him, devils obey Him, saints love Him, and sinners will bow to Him!

He is the author of . . . Creation, Providence, Redemption, and Glorification!

Behind The Mask

But wilt thou know, 0 vain man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:20

I think it is pitiful and rather sad that about the only time you can find a fellow citizen who is not a "phony" is when he is mad. In our kind of society, most people feel that they must always be pretending, continually "putting on a front." So, they are never their real selves until they get mad! When Jesus faced His bitter religious enemies as recorded in John 8, there was no pretending, nothing staged for dramatic effect. Jesus confronted them with the words: "He that is of God heareth God’s words. You, therefore, hear them not, because you are not of God!" These were firm and severe words; His enemies answered with. angry and insulting words. These men were mad; they were letting go. They had given up pretense. They were acting naturally now, showing what they were within. As humans, we are what we do! If what we do proves us to be wrong, then it is either despair or obtaining the help we need. Jesus came to change our natures. He came to break old habits of sin, to break and conquer them!
