“Jesus – A Baby That Didn’t Cry?”

Posted: December 24, 2021 in Evagelism, Gospel, Salvation

Most of us have no trouble loving a cute little baby that doesn’t cry even when his diaper is wet as it’s suggested in the Christmas song, “Away In A Manger…No Crying He Makes.”

In whom is your faith and trust resting? In yourself and your good works? In a particular church or denomination or in a religious leader? If you say that you believe in Christ, which One? [1]

Believe it or not, there are different Christs in whom people believe. They are not all the same.  Jesus predicted that this would happen (Matthew 24:5).

Consider the Wafer Jesus” who didn’t finish the work of salvation, the Elevated Jesus” who is the brother of Lucifer, the Modernist Jesus” who wasn’t virgin born, the “Universalist Jesus” who won’t send anyone to hell, the Prosperity Jesus” who promises wealth to the contributors, the Laughing Jesus” who slays people in the spirit, the Self-esteem Jesus” who never calls men sinners, the Charismatic Jesus” who says, “Let’s put on a show,” and the Contemporary Jesus” who says, “Let’s all get together.”  And then there is a Jesus who used to be Michael the archangel. Are you trusting in any of these false Christs? Are you believing in vain (1 Corinthians 15:2; Matthew 7:21-23)?

God The Son [2]

We believe the Scriptures teach that the second Person of the triune God is the eternal Son, the Logos, the I AM, who as the incarnate one became the Lord Jesus Christ (Jn. 1:1, 2; Rom. 9:5; II Pet. 1:1). As the preincarnate Son, He planned and made the ages (Isa. 9:6; Heb. 1:2; 11:3). As the Logos Son, He was the agent of creation and thus all things came into being by, through, and for Him (Jn. 1:1-3; Col. 1:16-19).

In the incarnation, He became a man through the miracle of His divine conception and virgin birth (Jn. 1:14; Luke 1:31-35; I Tim 3:16; Heb. 2:14), without change in His deity (Phil. 2:6-8; Jn. 1:14).

While on earth He lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary death for all men, was buried and arose bodily from the grave the third day (I Cor. 15:1-4; II Cor. 5:14, 15; Heb. 4:15). He then ascended bodily into heaven and is presently fulfilling His intercessory and mediatorial ministry (Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 4:14; 7:25; Rom. 8:34, 1 Tim. 2:5).

He indwells all believers of this dispensation [of Grace] imparting a quality of His life, which constitutes their possession of eternal life (Col. 1:27; I Jn. 5:11, 12). He has promised to rapture the church prior to the seventieth week of Daniel (Rev. 3:10).

After the Tribulation, He will return to earth and institute His millennial Davidic reign (Matt. 24:29-31; Luke 1:32; Rev. 20:4). After the millennial reign, He will turn the kingdom over to the Father. In the Father’s kingdom the authority of the Godhead will again be equalized so that the Son will co-reign into the ages of the ages (I Cor. 15:24-28; Rev. 11:15).

This, my friend, is the Christ of the Scriptures. You could know and believe all these facts to be true, and yet not believe on Him as your personal Savior and end up in the lake of fire forever. Perhaps you think that His death for your sins wasn’t necessary because you haven’t been bad enough for Him to die in your place for your sins (See Romans 3:10-23; Jeremiah 17:9; Isaiah 64:6). Maybe you think that His death for your sins wasn’t enough to save you, and so you keep on trying to add your good works to His work on the cross (See Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5).

If you aren’t absolutely sure of your salvation, please read “The Bad News & The Good News.” [3] We want you to have assurance of your salvation that comes from the Scriptures (1 John 5:13) and from God the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16). Once you’ve been saved, we want to help you grow spiritually, serve God and others effectively, and reproduce other believers.
