Jesus offers Himself! Amen! He is the Lord God Almighty. He offers eternal life, the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, and infinitely more.
Jesus came to earth as a man.
He was fully man and fully God.
God’s Son became a seed, an embryo, a fetus, a baby, a child, a boy, a teen, a young man, a man.
He knew as a 12-year-old boy that He must be about His Father’s business.
He lived as a human like us.
Yet, He is the Lord God Almighty, from eternity to eternity.
Though He is God, He will forever be robed in glorified flesh, to honor mankind.
He brought the kingdom of heaven to earth.
He made it possible for humans to live forever in heaven.
He reveals mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.
He speaks things kept secret from the foundation of the world (Psalm 78:2).
He reveals Himself.
He knocks on the door of every person’s heart (Rev. 3:20).
He’s available to every person, all the time, their entire life, for all eternity.
He believes in every person. All He asks is that they believe in Him.
He is in the secret place.
He is the hidden treasure . . . the gift of God . . . the unsearchable, infinite, eternal, unlimited One.
He is everywhere on the earth.
The earth is His, and the fullness thereof.
His glory fills the universe.
The universe exists in Him.
He’s revealed Himself to the simple.
Someone must become like a child to enter His kingdom.
The things highly regarded among men are detestable and an abomination to Him (Luke 16:15).
He is the God of paradox.
He dwells in the high and holy place, and with him who has a broken and contrite spirit.
He who exalts Himself will be humbled. He who humbles Himself will be exalted.
He who finds His life will lose it. He who loses His life for Jesus will find it.
He who gives up everything he has can be His disciple.
Anyone who leaves family and home for Jesus will receive one hundred fold, an exponential return, in this life and in the life to come, eternal life (Mark 10:30).
Many who are first will be last, and the last first.
If anyone wants to be first, He must become the very last and the servant of all.
He who loves His life will lose it. He who hates his life will keep it for eternal life.
A seed has to die to produce fruit.
A human has to lose his old nature to find eternal life.
If someone gains the whole world, but forfeits their soul, it profits them nothing.
There is nothing someone can give in exchange for their soul, because they are made in God’s image and likeness.
The richest person without Jesus is poor.
The poorest person with Jesus is rich.
Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.
Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing.
Without Jesus, someone has nothing.
Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.
Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead.
If they die without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.
He who believes in Him has everlasting life.
