Who is Jesus?

The apostle, John, wrote in the first few lines of his gospel that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. So, John sees Him as the Incarnate Word of God. 

In Mark 8 we read: 

Peter’s Confession of Christ

(Matthew 16:13-20; Luke 9:18-20; John 6:66-71)

27And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Who do men say that I am? 28And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say Elias; and others, One of the prophets. 29And he saith unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 30And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.

Jesus came as the second Person of the Trinity, the Son of God, and being fully God, He put on the humanity of man when He was born as a baby to a virgin, Mary, who was the wife of Joseph. Jesus was born in the flesh of humanity so He could feel what we feel during His life here. He had to experience pain, hunger, sorrow, and fatigue and truly identify with all of our limitations. The only thing about Him that was truly different from any other man was His nature because He was also fully God as well. 

He could heal the sick, cast out demons, calm the seas and the wind and raise people back to life. As John wrote that He was the Word of God incarnate. He was and is our Creator and our Savior.

So…why does belief in Jesus for your salvation cause so much trouble in the world? Is the idea of being saved from an eternity in hell so bad? I could understand if the pain and suffering only lasted a second or two but your eternal body is going to feel that pain forever and it is your decision that sends you there. God doesn’t, you do! When you refuse to believe in Jesus for your salvation, you are condemning yourself to that place.

Please don’t send yourself there. Jesus paid the price for you to be able to enter into heaven, all you have to do is believe in Him for your salvation and repent of your sins and follow Him for the rest of your life.
