Look Upon Jesus. . .

Back in the times of Ancient Israel, all too often God's people would leave the worship of the true God and join in with their neighboring nations to take part in the holidays and festivities connected with Idol worship. When they did this is wasn't long before they also grasped hold of the grosser aspects of these worships, even to the point of sacrificing their children to these ugly, misshapen figures designed by the devil and manufactured by the hands of wicked men.

When this took place, God would send prophets with messages inviting and pleading with His people to return to Him. "For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." Jeremiah 2:13.

Then the people would attack and persecute those prophets until finally God would allow these very nations to swarm over these apostates and conquer them, afflicting them sorely. When this took place the heathen would get the idea, "Hey, the God of Israel is nothing! Our Idols are stronger!" Because of the unfaithfulness of God's people, His name was held in contempt.

In our day religion is being treated like a buffet lunch; "Pick and choose what you like because it is all the same anyway." By many non-Christian religions the name of Jesus, while recognized, is considered no more holy than their own idols or 'prophets'.

Come explore and find out the answers and see if this is so; or if Jesus Christ is something so different that no other religious idea can even be compared!

First we see that this one figure fulfilled hundreds of prophecies; including the ones that pinpointed the time He would begin His mission and the very time it would end!

Someday We'll See Him

Jesus, precious Jesus; I recommend Him to you as a safe, infallible counselor. He will give you wisdom. He will walk by your side, He will talk with you, He will shut you in with Himself. But don’t feel that the burden of all reforms rests upon you. No, no. Just believe in Jesus as the great and successful Worker, and yourself an agent. And if your words apparently have no weight, don’t, don’t get despondent. Be cheerful and let everybody know that Christ is doing the work. Christ will not fail nor be discouraged. You just say, “Lord, now I have done my very best; Thou must do the work. I am not able.” Will you hide your soul in perfect quietude in the peace of Christ? It is the worrying that kills, not the work. Lift up thine eyes to heaven and say, “There is my home. I have the heavenly intelligences to help me in my God-given responsibilities. I am but an atom. Jesus and all heaven is in the army. The work is the Lord’s. The souls are His, purchased by His own blood. He will gird me for the conflict. I will not expend my strength needlessly. I will not talk of the giants in the way. I will talk of a mighty Savior.”

A Willing Sacrifice!

The Spirit testifies that the death of the Son of God was a willing sacrifice. "He gave himself." He was not torn from the throne by the Father and thrust forth into the world, but He craved the privilege of coming. He went not as a reluctant, but as a willing, victim to the altar. He was not dragged to the cross. He went there voluntarily. He was urged forward by His undying love for man. He loved sinners so ardently that He loved not His own life unto the death. His love for us was so great that it blunted the sense of the pain that was required to redeem us. Not all the Jews in the raving mob outside Pilate's judgment hall could have driven Him to Calvary; not all the Roman soldiers could have carried Him there; but His eternal love took Him there! No nails could have held Him to the cross, but His love for men fastened Him there. It was all a voluntary sacrifice.

When the proud Pilate boasted to Him, saying: "Know you not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee? Jesus answered, Thou could have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above." John 19:10, 11. Jesus clearly revealed the fact that His sacrifice was entirely voluntary on His part. They thought they were forcing Him. They believed Him to be in their power. But He knew that He was willingly rushing to the rescue of lost humanity at the cost of life itself. The urgency of His going to Calvary was not resting upon the hatred of the mob as it cried out, "Crucify him, crucify him," but upon His own eagerness to hasten to man's rescue. Hear Him as He exclaims concerning man: "Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom." Job 33:24. "Therefore does my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself" John 10:17, 18.

Amen!
