Therefore, the real Jesus Christ of the Bible is this marvellous Light of Truth, who opens the words of Holy Scripture only to His Church. He is the High Priest who actively serves as the spiritual Head of God's Church. God's Church is the organized spiritual organism that is the Body of Christ.
The Church of God therefore, is totally bound and dedicated to God's give way of life. God's way of life is true giving - which is true love. First, we give all praise, glory, honor and thanks to God our Father and Jesus Christ our Saviour. We thank God for blessing The Church of God with His power - the Holy Spirit. God's Church prevails because it has the continual flow and the unbreakable power of God's Holy Spirit. With God's Holy Spirit of power, the Church of God will always receive His divine revelation to understand and faithfully teach the words of Holy Scripture.
Therefore, no matter how small or great, your study of the Bible is, or may have been, you will find here that God's Church has the true understanding and teaching of the Bible. You will need go no further in your search for the truth of the Bible. God's Church has the responsibility to faithfully report the Plain Truth of the Holy Bible.
This Work of God is for the purpose of drawing all sinners to hear the Plain Truth of the words of Holy Scripture. But all the religious leaders of Satan's world will murmur against it. "Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receives sinners and eats with them" (Luke 15:1-2).
The multitudes drew near to hear the words of Jesus Christ, but when the religious leaders of Satan's world put the pressure on the multitudes, their attitudes changed, and all His disciples forsook Jesus and fled away. "How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus? In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not seize Me. But all this was done that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook Him and fled" (Matthew 26:54-56). Jesus Christ is reporting to humanity before it happens, reminding them that the Holy Scriptures declared He was to suffer greatly. Therefore, Jesus Christ learned as He lived the Scriptures that pertained to Him living as a human being, that He would feel the pain of being forsaken by His disciples and having to stand alone, as He experienced the most horrific crucifixion of death.
Meditate on this question after you read it! How many in this world's schools of journalism would ever consider Jesus Christ as The Greatest Newscaster?. When it comes to proclaiming the news, He is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the only newscaster who ever reported Headline News before it unfolded as news. This world's schools of journalism can only teach their reporters and newscasters to give the news or report the news as it is occurring. But those who are in God's School of Journalism can report and give the news before it unfolds or happens.
Therefore, now let it be clearly stated and understood, that the Prophets of the Old Testament as well as the Apostles of the New Testament were the true reporters. In their reports, we can find the absolute truth for the purpose of human life. They reported on what this most wonderful Good News would be.
Now notice, how the Apostle Peter reported this major Good News: "Of this salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven - things which angels desire to look into" (1 Peter 1:10-12). WOW! Reread this again, again until it sinks in!
Once we begin to grasp the fullness of this report, it is just overwhelming! It is truly inexpressible! The Prophets reported that it was the glorious news of God's New Covenant. This New Covenant is the Good News they reported before it unfolded in the New Testament as the BIG Headline News. God's Prophets reported that our Great Revelator of Good News would come. He would come through one of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Read and think about this seriously! Through our Great Revelator of Good News, we can understand why God changed Jacob's name. There is a very significant reason for why God changed Jacob's name. First, we need to understand that Jacob's name means "heel-catcher" or "supplanter". It was therefore, necessary, for God to bless Jacob with a special blessing of a new name. The new name God blesses him with is Israel. Why the name Israel? There is a great reason for why God gave him this name. The name Israel has a vital and significant meaning.
Through this name Israel, we can understand the Good News of what the New Covenant of God means. The name Israel means "one who overcomes, prevails" or "he will rule as God". Grasp this! Through understanding the name Israel, we can comprehend what the New Covenant of God is. Remember, obedience to the Old Covenant only had promises of a material inheritance. But obedience to the New Covenant has the promise of a spiritual inheritance in the Divine Family of God.
The Earth is Destined to be the Headquarters of the Whole Universe
With this vital knowledge, we can understand why the Great Teacher of God's New Covenant would come through the family of Israel. He would come from the tribe of Judah. Judah was one of the twelve sons of Israel. The Great Teacher would be the Greatest Newscaster who ever lived. He would be a Jew and become our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
