Who is The Lord Jesus Christ? Everything that God is, Jesus
is. He was God (the Word) manifested in the flesh to redeem and
reconcile fallen man back to a holy God. He is called God and
Lord; KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS; Jehovah; Emmanuel; mighty
God; the true God; the Alpha and Omega; the Amen; The Word of
God. He is the creator of all life and by Him all things consist.
He is heir of all things and upholds everything by the word of
his power. All power in heaven and in earth is His. His name is
above all names and one day all will have to bow and confess His
Lordship. All the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Him, and He
has all the divine attributes. He has the right and power to forgive
sins, to raise the dead, to be the judge of all man, and will
return in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He
has the keys of hell and of death. He is worthy to be loved, praised,
worshipped, adored, obeyed, and served by all of His creation.
In another lies no greater love , neither is there salvation in
any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among
men, whereby we must be saved.
