The Mysterious Jesus

“The Mysterious Jesus”
Ephesians 3:1-4

INTRODUCTION

  • This study today is on the Jesus of the New Testament and His prophecy in the Old Testament.
  • Let us understand that the prophets who wrote of the Messiah (Jesus) did not just write down whatever came to mind. How do I know that? Look at what Peter wrote (inspired by God by the way) in I Peter 1:10… “Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11) Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
  • You see they searched diligently (very hard and excited while doing it). They were searching to find out when the things they were inspired by God to write would come to pass. When are these things going to happen? They knew it was going to happen because God said it would.
  • Also note that when the prophets wrote about the Messiah to come, the bible says Luke 3:2…the word of God came unto John.
  • When Jesus spoke to people, they wouldn’t believe Him because what He preached and taught did not make sense according to what they were taught.
  • Some thought He was the Christ while others thought He was Elijah, or Jeremiah.
  • Then others thought no way could He be the prophet because He is come out of Galilee. And of course, nothing good came out of Galilee.
  • And the disciples wondered themselves with confused minds, can this really be the Messiah? Where is the Kingdom? Where is the Glory? Where is the Power? And John the Baptist found it very, very difficult to understand.
  • Look at a scenario right quick me about John the Baptist….
  1. In John 1:29, we see John the Baptist saying “Behold, the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world,” the next day after he baptized Jesus.
  2. Then we read later in the same book and chapter, verse 34…And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. 35) Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; 36) And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
  3. But all of a sudden we find John the Baptist in prison in Matthew 11, but note verse 2) … Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3) And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
  • Did you get that folks? Art thou he that should come…” John is the very one who recognized Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah, “The Son of God,” “The Lamb of God.” But now John sends out messengers asking… “Are you the Messiah?”
  • Was John a hypocrite, did he have dementia or Alzheimers?
  • You must know that, John, you baptized him and a voice from heaven said, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”
  • A dove came down and landed on His shoulder after you baptized Him. I mean, how in the world can you sit there in jail after things get a little tough, bail out to say “Are you the Messiah?”
  • How can John ask that?
  • Well, here’s how… We can see John the Baptist saying in Matthew 3:11…I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12) Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
  • So as John is sitting there in the jail he is thinking to himself as Jesus goes around preaching and teaching, “Where is His kingdom? Where is this might and power that He is supposed to have? Where is the fire in His baptism? Where is this unquenchable fire who is burning up the chaff?”
  • The fact is this…Around Jesus lies a great mystery.
  • All the prophets said this and that and none of what they said was true according to their minds.
  • In an article of The Canadian Motorist Magazine – the article was about a new book titled Jesus Died in Kashmir. (Now if you know your geography, Kashmir is a little country somewhere between India and Pakistan) Here are some things that are stated in the book and considered to be facts…
  1. It was written by a man named Faber-Kaiser.
  2. The book begins by telling us that there is alive in the world today a man who is the son of Jesus Christ.
  3. He is the only living traceable descendent to Jesus Christ and he is alive right now. His name is Sahibzada Basharat Saleem and he is the living descendant of Jesus Christ.
  4. Faber-Kaiser (author of the book) is sure of that, however Sahibzada is not quite yet convinced. But he is very excited if it is, in fact, true. He is not sure what it entitles him to, but he’s sure it must entitle him to something to be the son of Jesus Christ.
  5. The book suggests that Jesus visited Kashmir between the ages of 12 and 29, a convenient time because that’s the time the New Testament is silent on Jesus life. And so when the New Testament is silent it is because he went to Kashmir, and from the ages of 12 to 29 he studied Buddhism and he became a Buddhist lama or priest.
  6. They also note in the book that this can’t be proven because the British stole all the evidence in order to preserve Christianity.
  7. Jesus then spent from 12 to 29 becoming a Buddhist lama. He had such diverse and unique views that they drove him out of Kashmir. He went to India. They drove him out of India. He went to Iran and they drove him out of Iran, and he just kept going west until he got to Israel.
  8. At the age of 29 he landed in Palestine and ministered there.
  9. He never died on a cross. He never rose from the dead. Those are fables that have no historical evidence, says the book.
  10. He was crucified because there were wounds in his hands that healed over, they say. He was removed from the cross, took Mary – his mother – and Thomas, and the three of them went to India. Now the reason they went to India, says the book, is they were looking for the lost tribes of Israel who obviously were in India.
  11. Now when they got to Pakistan they stopped there and Mary died in Pakistan and was buried. Mary is buried, they believe, 30 miles from Rawalpindi. There is in Rawalpindi, a tomb marked as the tomb of Mary the Mother of Jesus and revered as such by the local people.
  12. Thomas went to south India and died. Nobody knows where and nobody really cares.
  13. But Jesus was left alone. He married, fathered children and lived to be 86 years old and was buried at the Rozabal crypt in Srinagar in Kashmir. And to this day people believe that that’s his crypt.
  14. He traveled to Afghanistan and other places and they gave him a name. His name was Shahzada Nabi Hazrat Yuza Asaf, and Yuza is the equivalent of Jesus. (FYI- the Koran speaks of him and the Koran says, “We,” that’s God speaking in plural, “We didn’t allow Christ to die on the cross,” says the Koran, “Instead we lifted him and took him away to a place full of natural beauty, gardens, lakes, rivers, flowers and fruit.”)
  • The sad thing is this….Hundreds of books have been written to add to this and improve on this fable to make people believe this and accept it as the truth.

 

I. The Mysterious Jesus of the Old Testament

   A) Contradicting prophecies?

  • I am not trying to create “doubt” in anyone’s mind, but merely to show you how mysterious it can seem to the unlearned.
  • The reason there is mystery attached to Jesus Christ in the Old Testament is because of the apparent conflict in regard to prophecies.

For example…

  1. The Bible says that He is the Coming King, yet another place tells us he is seen as a man of sorrows acquainted with grief.
  2. In one place he is seen with all of the saints, yet in another place he is presented as lonely.
  3. In one place he is represented as worshipped and adored and honored and revered, and in another place he is lonely and rejected.
  4. On the one hand he is King of Glory, King of Heaven, Eternal Savior, and Desire of all Nations, Wonder of Wonders, and Beauty among Beauty, yet in another place there is no beauty that we should desire him and he is a servant.
  • Now do you get the picture that is painted to the New Testament Jews?
  • How can all of these confusing, contradictory things ever come to pass?
  • But you and I have the privilege today of understanding the scripture more than they did. This is called “light and opportunity.”
  • Remember the parable of the sower? Look into Matthew 13:16…But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17)  For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
  • Listen, folks, we are able to see what they couldn’t see. We are able to understand what they couldn’t understand. We are able to see and resolve what they could never imagine could even be resolved. They’re mysteries.

B) Looking at some mysteries

No. 1 – “There will be a sign of His coming” Let us look at Isaiah 7:14… Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;

  • Stop right here… The Lord (Jesus) himself personally shall give the Jews a sign. This “sign” points to something. A virgin conceiving not knowing a man.
  • 14b)…Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
  • Not unusual for a woman to have a baby. Not unusual for a human child to be born, but very unusual that he should be called… “God with us.”
  • A human child, and yet a divine reality, and you look then at the mystery of God and man. How can anybody be God and man? How can there be a child who is the child of a human being, and who at the same time is God with Us?

No. 2 – “A child will be born of a virgin” Look at Isaiah 9: 6…“For unto us a child is born. Unto us a son is given.” Nothing unusual here except this is a prophecy of the coming messiah.

  • Here’s the mystery part…. and the government shall be upon his shoulder: (So possibly they are thinking He is to be some sort of ruler, or king) and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7) Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever.
  • How can you have a child the Mighty God, the Father of Eternity? How can one be born in time who fathered forever? How can it be that a woman should bring forth a child who made the woman?
  • Again in Matthew 13:16…But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

No. 3 – “ He Shall be Great”      

  • Look at Luke 1:26-37…
  • When you read this you think… not so unusual that a son be born of a woman right?
  • “And shall call his name Jesus. He shall be great.” Not so unusual. There had been other great people in the world born of a woman. (Like Moses, Enoch)
  • But then you read…“And shall be called the Son of the Highest.”
  • Now wait a minute that is unusual. Who is the Highest? God. The Son of God.
  • “And the Lord shall give unto him the throne of his father David and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever.”
  • The angel is telling Mary… “Yes, he will be great. He will be a king forever, an eternal king, and the Son of the Highest who is God. And of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
  • Mary then says unto the angel, “How shall this be seeing I know not a man.” In other words… “I am a virgin. How can I have a child?”
  • The angel answered and said unto her, “The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee. Therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”
  • How can a child be man and God? How can it be?
  • In the O.T. the mystery was yet a mystery until now.
  • On the one hand the child is a man born of Mary. On the other hand the child is God born of God for Mary knew no man. There was no earthly father. God was the heavenly Father. God put deity in human flesh provided through the loins of Mary.
  • The mystery is solved. He was fully God, fully man. Jesus, God in human flesh.
  • The Old Testament said that ..
  1. He(the Messiah) would be the seed of the woman. How can He be the seed of a woman? A woman has no seed! The seed comes from a man.
  2. Daniel 7:13 said He would be the son of man.
  3. Then Psalm 2:7 said He’d be the Son of God. How can He be the Son of God and Man?
  4. In Genesis 22:18 said He’d be the seed of Abraham. How can He be produced from Abraham, David, and God?
  • Do you get the picture that mystified all the New Testament people who grew up in Old Testament prophecies?
  • How can he be the son of man and the Son of God? How can he be produced from Abraham, produced from David and produced from God? How can God be man and man be God and at the same time be the son of man and the Son of God? How can one be a son of man and yet have no human father, and how can he be the seed of a woman when the woman has no seed? WHEW!
  • Yet He was all of these. He was God who lived in the flesh that was the seed of a woman that come from the line of Abraham. He was from the line of David and the Son of God. 

No. 4 – “The Sceptre”

  • Look at Genesis 49:10… The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
  • “The scepter” – meaning “the ruling right, the ruling authority, the right to be the King”
  • This right or this authority “shall not depart from Judah.” In other words of all of the sons of Jacob, all of the tribes, the Messianic line would proceed through Judah.
  • “..nor a lawgiver from between his feet,”… this is talking about children born of a woman. It means that children born to the line of Judah will maintain (keep control of) the rule/the government.
  • It will maintain this control notice now… “until Shiloh come; “ Shiloh means the one to whom it belongs, or the one whose right it is. This is an indicator of the Messiah yet to come.
  • Judah will maintain the royal line, the royal seed.
  • The Messiah will be born from one of the 12 tribes of Israel

No. 5. The Lineage

  • Now look at Genesis 38:24a…And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom.
  • Jesus Christ’s seed was to come from the tribe of Judah according to Prophecy.
  • Now this is news brought to a father-in-law about the wife of one of his sons.
  • Your daughter-in-law has played the harlot. She’s prostituted herself. She’s gotten pregnant by somebody else. And Judah was indignant.
  • Note the response of Judah here…. verse 24b), “And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.”
  • According to Deuteronomy 22:20…But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 21) Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you. 22) If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
  • 23) If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24) Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
  • This was the Law…. That when someone committed adultery they were to be stoned. Why is Judah saying she must be burned?
  • Here’s the reason why…. look at Leviticus 20:14…And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
  • Also note Leviticus 21:9… And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
  • These are considered to be great injustices, therefore worse consequences.
  • Now back in our text of Genesis 38:25…When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
  • Remember the story… The man who slept with her left his signet, bracelets and staff. These credentials would prove to any court who the man was.
  • Look at verse 26… “And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I;
  • You know what… Those were Judah’s signet, bracelets, and staff.
  • He had done it. He had committed adultery with his son’s wife and caused her to have a pregnancy.
  • In verses 27-30…We see here where Tamar was trying to birth these twins of Judah’s and the one they thought was coming out first, came out last.
  • If Genesis 49 is true (and it is true) then the Messiah is going to be a bastard child because out of this line from Tamar proceeds the royal line of Judah and is the Messiah to be the son of the legitimate child of adultery?
  • This can’t happen especially once you read the Law in Deuteronomy 23:2…A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.
  • Ten generations and the line was pure. So Judah started a royal line, but there wasn’t a person in that line who could reign until that line got purged.
  • Now we move to the New Testament. Matthew 1:3… Jadas should be written “Judah.”
  • Now as you read the genealogies of Christ written in Matthew 1…the lineage starts with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Judah. (4 generations)
  • From Judah to David is 10 generations of Christ’s lineage that had to be purged(cleansed from impurities) in order for the Messiah to come through that bloodline. (10 is also the number for “judgment.” And the wait for 10 generations was their judgement for Judah’s sin.
  • Now that it is purged from Tamar to Jesse, David has a right to the Royal Throne.
  • The line is purged in David, the Bible tells us, forever and always.
  • Jesus is a King. Not from the line of Judah, but from the line of David.
  • Now we have another mystery resolved from the O.T.

No. 6 – A ruler will come from Bethlehem, that is from everlasting

  • Go to Micah 5:2a…But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah,
  • Micah the minor prophet here is saying… “Look folks, it doesn’t matter if it seems that you are a little village, and not important compared to the thousands of cities in Judah.
  • Get this now….2b)… yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel;”
  • Now Micah says from you Bethlehem, will come the messiah, the ruler in Israel.
  • I must say that probably Bethlehem would not even have been recognized or acknowledged as a city had it not been for the birth of our Savior.   
  • Note what Micah says about this ruler that brings a mystery to the Jews.)…whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”
  • How in the world can you have a child born in Bethlehem whose been around since the time started on earth and yet be born of this time?
  • The prophecies of that time were this…
  1. Hosea 11 tells us that the Messiah will come from that nation; and as Israel was truly a son of God, so was Jesus Christ the Son. Hosea 11:1 …When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt. So in one prophecy (Michah’s) he’s coming to Bethlehem, and in another one (Hosea’s) it’s Egypt.
  2. Look at Isaiah 11:1… And there shall come forth a rod (sprout, child) out of the stem(roots, bloodline)of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: In your King James Bible , you will note the word “Branch” is capitalized. It brings messianic meaning to the word. The word “rod” in the Hebrew is translated “” A netser, a sprout. The first significance of this prophecy is the title of a branch given to the Messiah. But the second one, and the one that apparently the New Testament writer sees in this as well – we can assume others saw it – suggests that Jesus would be netser and that may be suggesting his boyhood residence of Nazareth, so that he is a sprout from sprout town.
  3. In verse 2: “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,” and then it describes the Kingdom and the millennium and so forth that he’ll bring. So it says that when he comes he will be a netser;
  •  How can he be all these things? Can you understand that the prophets of old searching the Scripture diligently wondering where is he going to be coming from? Is it Bethlehem? Is it Nazareth? Is it Egypt? No wonder they didn’t understand the coming of Jesus. It’s still a mystery.
  • Now the fulfillment of those prophesies…
  1. Matthew 2:1… Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem… (The 1st prophecy) Then Matthew in verse 5…alludes to the prophecy of Micah.
  2. Matthew 2:13… And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, (now we see the 2nd prophecy fulfilled)
  3. Matthew 2:23…And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth Now there you have it (the 3rd prophecy fulfilled),   

No. 7 – No man of David’s seed shall prosper, sit on the throne, or rule

  • Turn to Jeremiah 22:29…O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord. 30)  Thus saith the Lord, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.
  • The Jews must have thought… “Oh no, we’re doomed!” No messiah can come to save us from our imperfections and the fate of Hell.
  • In the above verse God is speaking to Jeconiah the king when he says… “Write this man childless.” Now the Messianic line from Judah to David flows from David to Jeconiah, sometimes called Coniah, and he was evil, unfaithful and God cursed him. This is why he was to be childless.
  • Now that doesn’t mean he never had any children. We know he had some children.
  • I want you to know that this guy is in the Messianic line. So here’s the prophet and he’s saying, “I know that the Messiah is coming from the line of Judah.” But how can he do that when the line of Judah is corrupted at the point of Tamar? How can that be a pure line, and then it’s purified in the tenth generation with David and he’s back on track. Yes he’ll come out of the loins of David and he’ll flow out of David and you come to Jeconiah and all of a sudden God says one thing about this guy, no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.
  • And you say that is the end of it. It’s over.
  • You want some historical truth? There haven’t been any kings since Jeconiah. There haven’t been any. He was the last one. There haven’t been any kings in Israel since him. That prophecy came to pass.
  • Look again at Matthew 1: note verse 11: “and Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon.” That was the end of the Monarchy. He was the last king and no king ever came out of his loins because of his evil. So all the guys that followed after him, Shealtiel, Zerubbabel, Abiud, Eliakim, Azor, Sadoc – all those – they never reigned on the throne. They had the right, but they never reigned because the curse was there.
  • And you come to verse 16 and Jacob begat Joseph.
  • You know something about Joseph? If there hadn’t been a curse to Jeconiah and if Palestine hadn’t been occupied by the Romans, guess who would have been the king of Israel?
  • But Joseph couldn’t be the king because he was from a cursed lineage.
  • So how are we going to get a king to rule Israel out of a bad lineage again?
  • You can see the dilemma can’t you? So there’s no king but the right to rule is there.
  • Look now at Luke 3:31… Here is where the New Testament resolves this mystery.
  • The kingly line came from David through his son Solomon, right? We just saw it. Look at this line, 3:31… Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David,
  • This is the genealogy of Mary. Now listen. David had more than one child. The royal line came through Solomon, the right to the throne. The royal blood also came through his other son Nathan. Mary was a descendent of Nathan, thus she carried royal blood but not the right to the throne.
  • Joseph had the right to the throne but couldn’t take it because his seed was cursed.
  • How are you going to resolve this? Go back to Matthew chapter 1 and watch this. Verse 16: “And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary.”
  • Not the father of Jesus, right? “The husband of Mary”
  • Since Joseph was cursed, He could not be the father of Jesus, and Jesus could not sit on the throne of God. Therefore God was the Father.
  • People say, “I don’t know if the virgin birth is important.” Then you’re a fool because you’re going to leave the Bible with mysteries that can’t be solved.

No. 8 – The Stone

  • Look at Daniel 2:34…Thou sawest till that a stone (Jesus Christ) was cut out without hands,(He is not human, not man made) which smote(Hit, destroys) the image(the kingdoms of men) upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35) Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. (His person fills the earth and becomes a whole mountain.)
  • This is a picture of the second coming of Christ.
  • He comes a glorious conqueror in stone. A stone of triumph, a stone of victory, a smiting stone, a crushing stone, a devastating stone, a stone of judgment. And so when they looked for a Messiah they saw a crushing stone.
  • Listen to what Isaiah said in Isaiah 8:14…And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15) And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
  • Then later Isaiah says in chapter 28:16…”Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
  • So you see here the prophets painting a picture of their Messiah as being a stone, indestructible, powerful and able to destroy anything in it’s path.
  • Then David writes of this same stone in Psalms 118:22The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
  • I Peter 2:6…Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion(Jerusalem) a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
  • It’s not easy to understand Jesus Christ if you do it on your own. That’s why you can’t read the Old Testament without the New or you’ll be mystified.

No. 9 – A Lion

  • Genesis 49 said Judah was a lion and that the Messiah would come out of Judah and thus the Messiah would be a lion, fierce, powerful, and deadly.
  • The last prophet of the Old Testament was John the Baptist. Even though it writes about him in the New Testament he’s really the last of the Old Testament prophets.
  • When he came he didn’t say the Messiah was a lion, he pointed to the Messiah and said he’s a what? He’s a lamb. John 13:6… “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.”
  • How can he be a lion and a lamb?
  • A lion is considered to be dangerous and fierce, and deadly, but then you take a lamb and it is timid, shy, weak, and quite the opposite of a lion.
  • Revelation sees him that way in chapter 5.
  • Revelation 5:5…And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6) And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
  • Look at this folks…To those who reject Jesus Christ He’s a lion. For those who accept him He’s a lamb.
  • To the world and the unlearned Christians…Jesus is a mystery. But to the children of God and the learned…Jesus is exactly who He claimed to be and all the prophets said He would be.

 

To the “Saved people”, Jesus is not a mystery!
