The Seed of the Serpent (those brood of vipers!) would reduce Jesus Christ to a religious figure, a wise man, a teacher, an example perhaps, even a prophet.
All that is but an insult: Jesus is the Creator — One with the Father.
Jesus Christ is not a religious figure.
Jesus Christ is not a pitiful naked man on a cross, dying.
Jesus Christ is not a talisman to be invoked by the lonely, the heartbroken, the weak, hoping for power over their circumstances.
Jesus Christ is, literally, the Son of God — Jesus is the Heir of all creation.
Jesus Christ alone will judge the souls of all men on the Judgement Day.
Jesus Christ will send men to hell — few will be saved.
Jesus Christ is not a Jew — no one in the Bible ever accused Jesus of being a Jew, neither his friends nor his enemies. Jesus Christ is the son of God — not the son of any man. Jesus Christ Himself qualified his lineage from David. (If the Christ is the Son of David, then how does he say by the Spirit, “the Lord said unto my Lord?”). Jesus Christ is a new priest, not of the order of Levi nor any other man descended from Adam; rather of the order of Melchizedek, who was without father or mother or beginning of days.
Jesus is the Ancient of Days.
Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega.
Fear Him who can not only kill the body but cast the soul into hell.
Jesus Christ was known as the “Galilean.”
Jesus Christ was know as “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Jesus Christ is the King of the Jews, per Pilate, but the Bible does not call Him a Jew.
The Jews renounced Jesus Christ — they declared: “we have no king but Ceasar.”
Jesus Christ is King of Kings, and Lord of every nation — this is a political rank, not a religious position.
The Father of Jesus Christ is God Almighty — directly, without intermediary.
His inheritance is all the nations — Jesus will rule them with a rod of iron.
The Father and Jesus Christ are One — never forget that.
His disciples said, “show us the Father, and that is enough.”
Jesus replied, “if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.”
Why tarry ye, in doubt?
Surrender now to the King of Kings, Jesus Christ.
