The Names of Jesus are the Names of God

From a sermon entitled “The Divinity of Christ”, by William S. Plumer (1802–1880).

One apostle says of Him, “This is the true God, and eternal life” (1 John 5:20). Speaking of the Israelites, another apostle says, “Of whom, as concerning the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever” (Romans 9:5).

In both [Old and New] Testaments, He is called Immanuel, which means “God with us” (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). Speaking of Him, Paul says, “God was manifest in the flesh” (1Timothy 3:16). The evangelical prophet calls Him “The mighty God, The everlasting Father” (Isaiah 9:6). Peter says, “He is Lord of all” (Acts 10:36). Paul says, “He is the Lord of glory” (1Corinthians 2:8).

Both Isaiah and Joel call Him by the [awesome] and incommunicable name, Jehovah (Isaiah 6:5–10, John 12:39–41; Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21; Romans 10:13). The Bible styles our Savior “God”, “the true God”, “God blessed forever”, “Lord of all”, "Lord of glory, God with us, Jehovah, Lord of hosts. This language is used by prophets and apostles at periods long separated and on occasions very diverse — some before His birth, others at His birth, and others after His ascension to glory. God’s Word thus teaches that He [Jesus Christ] is divine.

Lord Jesus, Thou God over all, Thou Jehovah of hosts, be Thou our Friend. Bless and help each one of us. Be unto us a horn of salvation.

Weaker by the Second

Galatians 6:8-9 "For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

So many people who claim to be Christians are getting weaker and more weary by the second. They don't usually leave our churches and fellowships, they just simply sit among us dead and lifeless with extremely compromised home lives.

I've grown weary and I know what it means to feel cold and even numb at times... but giving over to the rotten deeds of the flesh is never the answer to finding rest and joy, neither are we to loosen up on our God given convictions, if our convictions are grievous then they are performed out of obligation and not loving, trusting confidence. Any religious life lived outside of Christ will produce nothing more than duty. If you are weak and tired of living righteously; then I would wonder where I last saw Christ and run to Him.

So as the old Moravian quote states... "Our Lamb has conquered, Let us follow Him"

New Ministry Sign

We are so excited about the new message sign that God has blessed us with. It has been placed near the new Easley High School that will open in Fall 2012... this road is a very heavy traffic area and many young people will pass this sign going back and forth to school daily. Our desire and goal is to use this sign to provoke those who pass by to think about their lives and walk with Christ. Please help us pray as we use this sign to try and reach our community for the glory of God.
