Understanding The Christ Of The Bible-Daily Dish by WPP Jr

Understanding The Christ Of The Bible Not The One Men Have Made Him To Be

Let CHRIST Be CHRIST and let men be men.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11: 

And it is true that throughout the world history, despite the ruthlessness of suffering, terrorism, the threats of one’s life, and the horrors of ghetto life. The Bible have express a hope, joy and pride that seems heaven sent.

The Christ of the bible wasn’t famous for the houses he build or the number of splashy cars he own or for the huge amount of money in the bank he accumulated through tithes and offerings. He is famous for who he is and by the sacrificial life he lives. He was neither a politician, a movie star nor a business executive. People believe in him for his undiluted love for humanity. John 3:17. His compassion draws both the rich, poor, famous, learn and unlearn closer to God. In times of needs, many finds their needs met through him. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

In his presence, many find encouragement, true friendship and genuine care. By his spoken word, many were healed transform and regenerated. We all ought to be more compassionate loving and caring like Christ.

The Christ of the bible, he is so cool everybody he encountered falls in love with him. “There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverb 18:24.  He is the epitome of what true friendship ought to be, the very essence of living. At his time he was an example of what the true meaning of Christianity really is, his humility lies in his obedience to the cross.But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5:

The characteristic of Christ is deliberately misrepresented by many. Our places of worship are filled today with demigods parading themselves as holy men of god. Beware of false prophets. Who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious as wolves. Matthew 7:15”

Even in his death, his greatest humility manifested for all to see. The garrisons of armies’ that came to arrest him could not even differential him from his disciples. Mark 14:41-46.  That was how humble he is. The amiable Christ who became the object of sacrifice for humanity, cleaning us from sin by death at the cross, even at the cross Christ obedience brought humanity closer to God. Luke 23:39-43. Men are faultfinder but God forever loves. 1 John 4:16.

The Christ of the bible, although he is God but does not make himself equal with God. Who after performing great miracle of five loafs and two fishes, when the people seeing this awesome miracle wanted to make him king but He refused to be carried away by titles and the euphoria instead choosing to be a simple man so that through his death men might be saved. Although knowing all things but refused to be puff up, making himself equal with God. Mark 6:33-45.

Religion is business as usual but Christ Saves

  • Religion is not Christianity and Christianity is not religion.
  • Religion are the sets of rules and traditions of men. Religion wants to control you but Christ wants to set you free.

  • Religion uses men for personal gains. They take advantage of the vulnerable hiding in God’s name, misinterpreting God’s word to cheat the gullible. Christ saves religion uses mortals for money making. To some people religion is a means to an end.
When Christianity is politicize as it is today, it becomes a religion and religion are sets of rules and regulation made by men why the true meaning of Christianity is having a relationship with God. To simply live in obedience to God. It is the rules and the tradition of men that impede the work of Christ. The Christ of the bible, the one who was and the one who is to come, a faithful friend, ever kind and loving, ever patience, always understanding, forgiving, showing the way never partial is all we really need. We must know him for ourselves.

Let Christ be Christ and let men be men.
Many misunderstood the Christ of the bible. Some of his messengers constantly misrepresent him. The Christ of the bible, the friend of the weak and the strong, his colour is love. “For God make the sun to shine upon the righteous and the unrighteous.” Mathew 5:45. Whether righteous or unrighteous God is not partial, all his children are his favourites.

Some of his children might turn their back on Him but he still loves them the same. He longs to see wandering men find their way home into the bosom of His rest.The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9. Let men be men and let God be God. Men have no final word on God Him alone has the final say on what is before humanity. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10:

God has already made himself known to humanity. Whatever explanation or understanding we might hold about God will only compliment what He has already revealed to mortality. God speak better for himself than we men. Let God be God and let men be men.

Every day God speaks but men never listen. The moon, sky, ocean and the valley, the birds of the air that constantly entertain us with melodious songs. The fishes in the river with omega3 acid, the sun that smiles in the morning and bid us farewell at dawn, your lips, nose and teeth daily every seconds in a moment in a day they all conform the divinity within.

  • The Christ of the bible, he is the friend of the righteous and the unrighteous. God is not in conflict with men but men’s character is constantly in conflict with God.
  • Men are helpless but God is helpful.
  • Men are unforgiving but God forgives. “... The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. .... Psalm 51:17.
Who do men says Christ is today?

The Christ some profess today is not what the bible says he is.  Quite a few profess the real attributes of Christ of the bible nowadays. Many profess to call on him but few practice his principles. His ways are like the road that leads to the garden, like the stream quietly moving beneath the bamboo leaves. He is peaceful, forgiving, tolerant, loving showing mercy and patience. According to the Christ of the Bible Christianity was birth through revelation that all men can understand the educated and the uneducated. Tell me, what is Christianity today?

What do we see today the proliferation of the gospel by many, the pawning of the name of the lord for hard currency. Our airwaves saturated by buying and selling in the name of the Almighty, the pawning of the name of God for mammal, fame, titles, the gospel as a means to an end to many instead of a means to Salvation.  Give God a dollar expect ten dollar, the abuse of the pulpit. We have to bribe God to get the blessings, deceptive individuals parading and masquerading themselves as holy men and women of the Creator.  We live at deceptive times.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak – willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.” 2Timothy 3:1-9. NIV

Everyone should be fully persuaded and seek for his or herself the right way to paradise. Unfortunately, men cannot give eternal life but God can.  Let God be God and let men be men.

God is not hard to find, wherever you are or may live God is the very breathe coming out of your nostril. Every day God speak but men refused to listen. We are only a compliment of what God already says He is. God has already revealed himself to humanity. Whatever we do or whatever interpretation his servants explain about Him it’s a compliment of who He already says he is. That’s why in every language there is a name for God. The name for manmade god are always in small letters and the name for God in capital letter – meaning the creator of heaven and the earth. These names of God in every language are self-explanatory. They all mean, the Creator of the heaven and the earth. 

Religion is for sale but Christ saves. No wonder sycophants hide under the name of Christ and exploit Gods children. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.

Christianity professes by Christ and his disciples should be re-examine by his followers today. All God’s children who crave for the real gospel should rediscover Christ for themselves. Every God fearing people should shun the worship of man and individualism that is rampant in our four walls nowadays.

The Christ of the bible, when you encounter him for yourself you will fall in love with him. He is delightful trustworthy and that is why I love him. Falling in love with Christ is the best thing that will ever happen to any human being. I have never seen God but I know He is real. Men live in the presence but God lives in eternity. What l speaks and say is not common, what is common is what is already known. You might not be used to what I am saying because it is revelation revolution. A shift from what you are already used to hearing. What is common is what has already be revealed. You are haring the unknown which is been revealed.

The Christ of the bible is not what some certain men made him to be. If you should encounter him for yourself, you will fall in love with him without looking back again. He is pure and real, the real deal! A friend of all, who understands the struggles, suffering and challenges of humanity, Christ, a man from the ghetto, compassionate, loving and fair, impartial who came to bear the pain, disease of humanity who freely gave his life for men’s sins. Let men be men and let Christ be Christ. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Some certain few loves to do the talk and talk, talk, and do less work always but Christ was real to the call. We are not created to judge but to spread His love Let God be the judge and let mortality spread his love. We are the people whose suppose to help not spreading hatred or intolerant.” Isaiah 53:5:

But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

The people replied, "We would never abandon the LORD and serve other gods. Joshua 24:15-16
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24:

Men are naturally mad on the subject of religion, and “the revival, restore them rather than make them mad.” Charles Finney
