Jesus is God

Jesus is God

If someone had told you twenty years before September 11, 2001 that the Twin Towers in New York would come down would you have believed them?  Only God knows that future and can foretell the future.  Please read Matthew 24:1-2.  Jesus just got through lamenting over Jerusalem and is now leaving the temple complex on his way back to Bethany to spend the night.  As Jesus was leaving the temple complex, he was beginning to fulfill prophecy that he had just spoken.  He told the people that they would not see him again until they say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the LORD!’ (vs 39) Only God can foretell the future and bring it to pass. Listen to what God told Isaiah to tell Israel, “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God beside Me. Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it; Yes, let him recount it to Me in order, from the time that I established the ancient nation.  And let them declare to them the things that are coming and the events that are going to take place.  Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it?  And you are My witness. Is there any God beside Me, or is there any other Rock? I know of none.” (Isaiah 44:6-8)  As Jesus is going out of the temple his disciples come up to him and pointed out the size of the temple complex really wondering how could such a beautiful complex be left desolate.  We often ask the same questions today as Jesus’ disciples because we fail to see with spiritual eyes what the Lord is up to.  Even now we need the Lord to open the eyes of our heart through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.  Jesus being God’s Son is Israel’s Redeemer, the Lord of hosts. James, the Lord’s brother, calls him the Lord of Sabaoth(host) in James 5:4. Jesus is not only Israel’s Redeemer he is also your Redeemer if you call upon him to save you.  What Jesus told his disciples about the temple being left desolate and torn down took place in AD 70 when the Roman General Titus came and captured Jerusalem.  Rome didn’t want it destroyed but someone threw a lit torch into the temple and it went up faster than an old house made out of fat lighter.  They took the massive stones and so moved them that when it was over there was nothing left in its place. What does the Lord want us to do? He tells us through the prophet Jeremiah to: “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)  When was the last time you sought the Lord Jesus?
