“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19),
“We must present to the people, not the imaginations of men, not their schemes and conclusions but the grace of God in the gift of his only begotten Son,.. We are to lift up Jesus, that he may draw men unto himself.”  GCB Oct 1, 1896

 

Jesus is…

The Seed of the woman promised to Adam and Eve, the Ram caught in a thicket to take Isaac’s place,

He’s Jacob’s Ladder connecting earth with heaven,

He’s Joseph’s coat of many colors,

He’s the Angel of the Lord who made the ground all around the burning bush holy ground,

He’s the Passover Lamb of God whose blood saved Israel from the Destroyer,

He’s the unleaven bread and the wave sheaf

He’s the manna, the true bread of heaven, preserved from corruption over Sabbath

He’s the tree cast into the bitter waters of Marah,

He’s the Rock in the wilderness gushing forth the water of life,

He was the brazen serpent raised up, lifted up on a pole for all the dying to see, to look and live.

He’s the lily of the valley, the bright and morning star

The the fairest of 10,000,  the Daystar from on high, the Light of the world

The captain of the Lord’s cost standing on holy ground before Joshua

The Lord’s goat slain on the Day of Atonement

He’s the seven branch candlestick lighting the way into the Sanctuary

He’s the sweet incense ascending into the Most Holy Place

He’s the veil, the Door to the sheepfold, the way into the Most Holy

He’s the mercy seat between us and the law

He’s the one Mediator between God and men

He’s our Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous

He’s the Promise One, the Messiah, the Anointed of God

He’s the Good Shepherd, the chief Shepherd, our High Priest after the order of Melchizedek

He’s the Son of God walking in the fiery furnace,

He’s the Son of man coming in the clouds to the Ancient of Days

The only-begotten Son of God, the only begotten of the Father, Son of the Father in truth and love

The Son of Him who established the foundations of the earth,

He’s the firstborn of heaven, the firstborn of all creation

The image of the invisible God, the outshining of the Father’s glory

The express image of the Father’s person

He’s the Word of God who was with God in the beginning

He’s that eternal life which was with the Father,  He’s Immanuel: God with us

He’s the green Tree, the tree of life, the true Vine,

The true and faithful witness, one of two Witnesses, two Olive Trees

He’s the Pearl of great price and the heavenly Merchant Man

He’s the chief cornerstone, the Rock of ages, the Stone cut without hands from the mountain of God

He’s the Branch of the Lord, the Lord our Righteousness, the Saviour of the world

He’s the one Lord by whom are all things, who created heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, The breath of His mouth who commanded and it stood fast

He is the Spirit that was in the prophets, the Spirit of prophecy

He’s the Author and Finisher of our faith, the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last

He’s the resurrection and the life, the voice of the archangel, the voice of many waters

He’s the prince of the kings of the earth, the Prince of peace, the mighty God

He’s the King of glory, the King of kings and Lord of lords

His name shall be called Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.

He’s the name above all names (Col 2:9), the name given to him by his Father.
