As we know, people from all over the world have said they have seen Jesus in clouds, various foodstuffs, buildings, etc. There is one little problem with this. Nobody knows what Jesus looked like. Continue reading →
During His earthly ministry, the Bible is clear that Jesus Christ faced temptations as we do. One of those instances is documented in Matthew 4 (a parallel passage is Luke 4) where He is tempted by Satan himself. In accordance with His perfect life, Jesus did not give in, but rather provides us with a primer on how to deal with the temptations we face. Continue reading →
Too many times in our society, people promote themselves and take credit whether it’s due or not. This is a prideful way of acting and one that was foreign to a remarkable man named Daniel.
We find Daniel in the second chapter of the book bearing his name facing certain death. King Nebuchadnezzar has ordered that all the wise men be put to death because they could not tell Nebuchadnezzar what he had been dreaming about or what it meant.

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Jesus Christ is the High Priest of every believer. He left His throne in Heaven to come to this Earth to pay the price for our sin. He is the One Who entered into the Holy of Holies with His own blood to propitiate the wrath of God.
Like the high priests of ancient Israel, Jesus Christ was among mankind when He ministered. He felt pain, hunger, thirst. He knew temptation, even by Satan himself! Yet, He lived a perfect life without sin. That is what made Him the perfect, spotless Lamb of God, Who could take away the sin of the world (John 1:29).
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Jesus Christ completes every believer. The Greek word translated “complete” means to be completely full, crammed, or fully satisfied. In His grace, God gives us the Gift that keeps on giving. No matter how “needy” we become, Jesus is all we need.
