Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
Now, there is people today who firmly is against everything that’s called God, no religion. And they’re mostly in the majority in our country. World over, they’re far in the majority, millions and millions that’s never heard the Name of Jesus Christ. They are in the majority.
Then there are those who are professors of religion. And they love to put on their ceremonies. They love to be dignitaries. They like to dress, and to go to the church, and to have some kind of hymns, and a little message of some sort, talk of a God that was, and then place Him so far back in history that He can’t move, that He was something that was.
They want to claim that Jesus is right. He was a good fellow. He was a great man. He was like Washington, never told a lie, or like Napoleon. That’s their attitude about Jesus. They think that He was just a good man. Many of them today don’t claim Him to be Divine. They just claim that He was a good man, that His teaching was right. Some of them believe Him to be just a prophet.
But there is those who go beyond that boundary. I believe Him to be God: Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. That He wasn’t just a prophet, that He wasn’t just a man, that He wasn’t just a teacher or a good man, He was the Divine Jehovah God living in a body of flesh. You’d ask me, “Who is this?” That’s what my opinion of Him is.
He’s God manifested in the flesh to take away the sins of the world. Who is this? Not just a man, not just a prophet, but the Emmanuel, God with us. Then not only with us, but in us, through us, God in the midst of us. Then, if that is true, a supernatural God cannot change His nature to fit people’s nature. People has to change their nature to fit God’s supernatural plan. And that’s why people cry, “Who is this?” It’s God in the midst of His people. They don’t understand it.
God will never come to your level; you’ll have to come to His. God will not come to your requirements; you have to come to God’s. And then when that requirement is met upon a promise that God made to redeem the people. If that requirement has met, your entire being changes; your thinking changes. Your habits change.
Everything about your changes. Your desires change. Your living changes. Your habits change. You change. Everything about your changes, ’cause there’s a new life in you.
