THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A little boy opened the big family Bible.
He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages.
Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible.
He picked up the object and looked at it.
What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.
“Mama, look what I found,” the boy called out.
“What have you got there, dear?”
With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered,
“I think it's Adam's underwear!”
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God;
and that believing ye might have life through his name.
1 John 5:13
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God;
that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
It’s amazing what you can find in the Bible!
For instance, did you know baseball is mentioned?
Sure, in the first book, the Bible writes about the “big inning.”
The Bible was written over a 1600 year period by approximately 40 men.
Historically it has been said that the Bible is the most sold book of all time.
It is regularly on various best seller lists.
The MAIN thing one finds in the Bible is the Person of Jesus Christ.
He is the visible image of the invisible God, “..by Whom also He made the worlds.” (Hebrews 1:2)
He is the only manifestation of God Almighty, and “..in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2:9)
The whole Bible is “The Revelation of Jesus Christ...” (Revelation 1:1)
In Isaiah 43:11, the Bible says, “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”
In other words, Messiah can be no other than the LORD Himself!
And in Luke 2:11, we find that Jesus is the “Saviour, which is Christ the LORD.”
At His birth in this earth, Jesus is God born of God.
He is the ONE “seed” promised to Eve.
Luke 1:35 says, “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,
and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”
At His death in this earth, Jesus is God PAYING God (in blood) for the sins of mankind.
Romans 5:11 says, “...we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”
Jesus is the ONLY Person by Whom we can find forgiveness from God.
He is the ONLY Person through Whom we can find our way to God.
Acts 4:12 says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
And, Jesus said Himself, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
By Jesus Christ, and Him alone, you can find PEACE with God.
Romans 5:1 says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
It doesn’t matter WHO you are, or what you’ve done, you can call on Jesus and be saved.
Romans 10:13 says, “WHOSOEVER shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Yes, it’s AMAZING what you can find in the Bible.
I sincerely pray that you have found JESUS!
