Jesus is our God and Savior. He has always been with the Father, and created all things heaven and earth. The Lord came down, in order to pay the price for our sins. Some people say Jesus is a created being, but they don’t understand the scriptures. It is written, Jesus is the “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8) Therefore, he has always existed with the Father, and will exist for all eternity. Jesus is an exalted being. We are not at His level, nor ever will be. “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.” (Philippians 2:6-9) Nobody should ever try to compete with God, by telling themselves that they can become a God like Him someday.
Look to Jesus. He paid the price for our sins and defeated the grave with His resurrection. Those who would put their trust in Jesus are the ones who are safe in this life and the next. They will find rest for their souls. This is because Jesus came down to save the least of us. His blood cleanses us and makes us whole. Jesus has the power to save us and forgive us of our sins. Trust in Him! “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:10-12) Bow down to Jesus while you still have time. Only those whom Jesus knows will end up going to the new earth/new heaven. Do this with fear and trembling before the Lord. Work out your own salvation and don’t rely on other people’s testimonies of Jesus. Don’t live in willful sin but in His glorious light. He makes us holy as He is holy. Amen.
