WHO IS JESUS?

The Bible declares that “in the beginning there was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things came into being by Him, …”  John 1:1-3

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”  John 1:14

Revelation 19:13 — “And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God.”

The Father sent His Word to this earth and wrpped it in a flesh body for the world to behold what God was really like.  Jesus, as He is now, is the Father’s Words wrapped in the body He was given when He was sent to the earth.

Jesus is the Words of the Father incarnated so we could see his actions and hear what the Fatheer had to say to us.

When someone is “born again” the life of God (zoe) is placed within that person and that person becomes a “new creation” and that zoe life is the same life that Jesus had when He was on this earth.  That new birth was created by receiving the Word of God.  That Word was “incarnated” within you and you became a part of the “Body of Christ” on this earth.  See 1 Peter 1:23.

We, my friends, are the ongoing incarnation of God’s words.  We receive His words and those words become wrapped in flesh just like Jesus was.

The Church (ekklesia) that is on this earth today is the visible manifestation of Jesus on this earth that all the world is to see.

What kind of job are we doing?

I have a new book coming out in April 2016 called “The Jesus Revolution”  that will go into much more detail about what I have written in this short blog.  I will notify of it when it is released.

  1. Dear Pastor Rob. As all the others this is short but packs a great deal. Its a gift I crave….saying much in very few words :). I find that I have a great challenge with friends on the authenticity of the Bible and Christianity and much of it is based on the “state of the Church” and the “fruits” that Christians bear. Of course I know that the argument is flawed but I’ve long wondered about their perspective in the quiet of my heart despite my attempts to defend the veracity of Scripture and Jesus plan for us all.

    If I see a brochure for a high school its well designed, great photos of the facilities and equipment, awesome graphics and an impressive curriculum promising me success and a bright future for my child. I’d be pulled to registering him there. I visit and everything is as shown in the photos. I begin the registration process and in the process I run into a graduate and he doesn’t seem the picture of the kind of person who would have attended such a prestigious school. I think perhaps that just him but I decide to seek out some alumni and I find that their story is equally unimpressive. I now request the facts on graduate performance and find that most quit before completion and those who completed high school barely made the grade and the majority struggle to get placement in college. Would I send my child there? Isn’t the failure of the institution to produce the well rounded, qualified student saying something about the school’s ability to deliver on its promises.

    That’s kinda how I view the situation of the church. I rarely see the product the bible promises. I see folks who err and struggle and live in the flesh (not walking in the Spirit) responds to life challenges the VERY same way that non-believers do……sometimes even worse. Is it unreasonable to find fault with the position my friends take esp as I harbour similar concerns? How can I possibly expect them to be drawn to a space that seems to offer very little more than they themselves have?

    Would love your view. Hope this is not taking you off topic but I’m hoping the new book will speak to the kind of revolution that is possible that will give credence to the statement that “He has come that we can have life and have it more abundantly” and that will let us demonstrate visbly that the “Kingdom is not merely word/talk but power”. Thanks Pastor Rob.

    • You are absolutely correct in your assessment of the church most people in the church act just like those in the world system because they have not been taught the truth of the Kingdom or of Covenant or of what it really means to be a Christian

  2. Is the new book out yet?
