Jesus is God

Not only did Jesus claim to be God, He proved it by pointing to the Old Testament to reveal that Moses and the prophets were actually writing about Him.
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me (John 5:39).
Here are just two jaw-dropping examples taken from “Jesus Unmasked” (available at wretchedradio.com)

The Feast of Tabernacles
Feast of TabernaclesThis feast was established by God in @1425 BC (Leviticus 23:33-44). The Jews were to annually commemorate God’s faithfulness by re-enacting their living conditions during the wilderness wanderings. They were to live in a tabernacle (tent or “booth”) for a week and perform symbolic religious ceremonies.
Colossians 2:16, 17 tells us that this festival was actually a picture of Jesus. How?
The Living Water

Each morning of the feast, at the time of the sacrifice, the priests would draw water in a golden vessel from the Pool of Siloam and carry it to the temple to be poured out. This commemorated the water God gave the Jews in the wilderness and served as a symbol that when Messiah comes, the whole world will know God as “water covers the earth” (Is.11:9).

As the temple priests marched around the temple seven times, they would quote the prophet Isaiah.
Then you will say on that day,

“I will give thanks to You, O LORD;
For although You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away,
And You comfort me.
“Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
For the LORD GOD is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.”
Therefore you will joyously draw water
From the springs of salvation (Is. 12:1-3). Continue Reading →

Lessons from the Scandal of the Century

Yep, Donald Sterling is a racist old man. Racism is a sin, therefore, Donald Sterling is a sinner. Now there’s a shock.

shockWhat can we learn from the scandal of the century? Lots.

  1. Secularists are stunned that the LA Clippers owner (for now) is racist. Christians aren’t. Racism is another symptom of the fall. Furthermore, the core of racism is arrogance. No Christian in his right mind should be throwing the first stone at Mr. Sterling.
  2. The world is more eager to condemn than forgive. Christians are fast to forgive. Christianity is a nicer world to live in.
  3. Christians seem to have forgotten that racism is not the granddaddy of all sins. Continue Reading →
