Who is Jesus? Jesus is Lord!
He is the King of Glory!
One of the greatest things about Jesus is that He is the Lord of all Creation. Whether people choose to believe in Him or not, He is still Lord. Everyone wants to live a good life while here on Earth but many don’t know that Jesus is the Way to live a good and blessed life. He makes life worth living and He fills our lives purpose and meaning. Jesus adds richness to our lives and gives us hope.
1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god.
5 They will receive blessing from the Lord
and vindication from God their Savior.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob.
7 Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?
The Lord Almighty—
he is the King of glory.
Whether people choose to pray to Him or not, He is still the one who provides all ours needs Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Jesus is the Lord of all Creation and everyone has go through Jesus to get to Heaven.
John 14: 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus is the door through which everyone must enter. He is only way to God and to Heaven. There are Billions how follow Him and we all must give in account to God with what we did with the precious gift He gave us, He only Begotten Son.
Before Jesus gave His life as on the Cross as the Lamb of God, He appeared in Glory along with Moses and Elijah before His disciples Peter, James and John. Read below;
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
What makes this so profound is that Jesus shows His disciples a glimpse of His Glory. Jesus came to Earth the first time in very humble circumstances and that is because He came for first to the suffering Savior prophesied in Isaiah 53, the Lamb of God. When Jesus comes the second time, He shall come in power and great glory. This was only and glimpse of Jesus’ Glory.
No two prophets are more revered in Old Testament scripture than Moses and Elijah. These two great Prophets appeared with Jesus and they were talking with Jesus. This lets us know that these two prophets were sent by God to appear with Jesus to confirm that Jesus is the Messiah, the son of God. God wanted the disciples to witness this great event so they could record this as a testimony in the Gospels of Jesus Christ, to serve a powerful proof that Jesus is the Son of God. Notice 3 disciples saw this event and are witnesses to it being true.
Peter filled with elation to see Moses and Elijah appearing with Jesus, wanted to build tabernacle for all 3 of them. God interrupted Peter’s nonsensical idea, and God appeared in a cloud and said “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” God wanted to correct them and let them know that Jesus is His Son, the Messiah. It was kind of Peter to want to honor Moses and Elijah but God gave them this vision for the purpose of letting us all know that Jesus is Lord and Jesus is the King of Glory!
After the vision Jesus charged His disciple not to tell anyone about this until after He was risen from the dead. That is how powerful this vision was and a key to the witness of Jesus as Messiah. The disciples asked Jesus, why do the scribes say Elijah shall come first? Jesus’ response in Matthew 17: 11 “Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.” He said this to let us know that Elijah shall literally(truly) come first and restore all things and Jesus was speaking of His Seconding coming when He comes to set up His Kingdom here on Earth. However He also tells them that Elijah has already come and they knew him not, Jesus was speaking of the Prophet John the Baptist. Jesus was letting us know that John the Baptist operated in the spirit and power of Elijah as the forerunner for His first coming.
Matthew 17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
When you think about who Jesus is, keep in mind that this Earth is the Lords and everything in it. Jesus is just a way; He is The Way, He is The Truth and He is The Life. Right now it looks like people are in charge but keep in mind that there is not authority or power that Jesus is not in control of. He is the Sovereign Lord of Glory. Romans 13:1 “For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”
Many people do not serve, acknowledge or believe in Jesus but Jesus has all authority and power in Heaven and in Earth. Jesus is Lord! Jesus is the King of Glory!
