WHO IS JESUS TO YOU?
John 1:25-28 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptiseth thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? John answered them, saying, I baptise with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose. These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptising".
This is the Testimony of John the Baptist, of JESUS CHRIST, the SAVIOUR of the world; The MESSIAH. The Bible says He came and walked amongst men and his people knew Him not. They were blinded by religion and many are still blinded today. It is only by Grace of Revelation that Jesus Christ is revealed for a soul to be redeemed. When Jesus walked the face of the earth, although man did not recognise Him the demons did and they trembled because in the realm of the Spirit, (a spirit knows a spirit) they know who is LORD, and they bow down. - Matthew 8:29 "And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, JESUS, THOU SON OF GOD? art thou come hither to torment us before the time"?
However, it took revelation for Peter to speak that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus asked the question in Matthew 16:15-17 "He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven". That same question goes for you today, Jesus is asking "whom do you say I am". The world may not know Him because their eyes are blinded by the god of this world. But when revelation comes, destiny is activated and your ministry is birthed. Simon by the grace of Revelation recognised Jesus as the CHRIST, SON OF THE LIVING GOD. Immediately, Simon Barjona was transported into his Destiny as Peter when his eyes became open. Jesus declare in Mathew16:18-19 "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven".
Beloved, what is your Testimony of Jesus, it is not enough to believe, the bible says even the demons believe. You need to have REVELATION of who JESUS CHRIST is. There are so many, even people of other religions who say they believe in Jesus. Some say He is one of the prophets and they believe He is a high prophet. Let us set the record straight. JESUS IS NOT ONLY A PROPHET, HE IS THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. When you get that revelation, no gates of hell will be able to stand against your destiny when you walk according to His purpose for your life. Revelation activates a person's destiny, enabling you to take responsibility to act in the Will of God for your life. It changes your perspective and position supernaturally. And there is a Promise and chain of command of Authority that comes with the office of the Believer in Christ Jesus - "And I will give unto thee the keys of the KINGDOM of HEAVEN: and WHATSOVER THOU SHALT BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN; AND WHATSOVER THOU SHALT LOOSE ON EARTH SHALT BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN". Amen and Amen in Jesus Mighty Name.
The question remains, who is Jesus to you? This is a question that must be answered in sincerity because it defines who you are and to whom you belong. As for me and my household, He is Our Lord and Master. He is The Son of God. The Love of God revealed in the flesh. He is GOD. Him alone shall we serve by His Grace to the Glory of the Father. Amen.
Have a Revelation filled day. It not by power nor by might, but by the Spirit of the Living God. When Grace is at work all natural laws and protocols submit to the Supernatural.
