JESUS CHRIST ASKED, WHOM DO YOU SAY I AM?

JESUS CHRIST ASKED, WHOM DO YOU SAY I AM?
Sept. 11th, 2010


I PRAISE GOD FOR THE SOVEREIGN WAY IN WHICH HE WORKS TO BRING ABOUT HIS
WILL, THROUGH HIS CHILDREN FOR HIS GLORY AND FOR THE EXTENSION OF HIS
KINGDOM! HALLELUJAH!!!

RECENTLY, WHEN I WAS TO SHARE ON TALKSHOE.COM THROUGH THE KIND PROVISION
OF PASTOR REVA CHANEY, I ASKED THE LORD WHAT HE WANTED ME TO SHARE, -
IMMEDIATELY THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID TO ME, “IF THIS WAS THE LAST MESSAGE
YOU ARE TO SHARE, AND IF IT IS THE LAST MESSAGE THAT THEY WILL HEAR,
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?”
WOW!! THAT WAS A SOLEMN RESPONSIBILITY ON ME TO SHARE WITH THEM WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR MOST WHEN FACED WITH ETERNITY!

I KNEW THEN I HAVE TO SHARE JESUS CHRIST FOR ONLY HE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE SITUATION WHEN WE ARE FACING ETERNITY!

MATHEW 16: 13 – 20 SAYS,
“WHEN JESUS CAME INTO THE COASTS OF CESAREA, PHILIPPI, HE ASKED HIS DISCIPLES, SAYING, WHOM DO MEN SAY THAT I THE SON OF MAN AM?
AND THEY SAID, SOME SAY THAT THOU ART JOHN THE BAPTIST; SOME ELIAS, AND OTHERS, JEREMIAS OR ONE OF THE PROPHETS.
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.
AND I SAY ALSO UNTO THEE, 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 THEE THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, AND WHATSOEVER
THOU SHALT BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN; AND WHATSOEVER THOU
SHALL LOOSE ON EARTH SHALT BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.”

AFTER HEARING THEM TELL HIM WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT OF HIM,
JESUS ASKED THEM A PERSONAL QUESTION THAT REQUIRED AN ANSWER –
“BUT WHOM SAY YE THAT I AM?
PETER SAID, THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD!
PETER’S ANSWER WAS CORRECT - HE IS THE ANOINTED ONE OF GOD COME TO BE
THE MESSIAH/SAVIOR OF THE WORLD AND HE IS THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD!
JESUS KNEW THAT THIS ANSWER DID NOT COME THROUGH FLESH AND BLOOD (MAN’S
REASONING) BUT HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN GAVE PETER THIS REVELATION.

JESUS SAID TO PETER, UPON THIS REVELATION THAT YOU HAD FROM MY FATHER
I’M GOING TO BUILD MY CHURCH AND THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL
AGAINST IT.

HOW WOULD YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION?
FOR IT IS PERSONAL AND IT SHOULD BE ANSWERED BY YOU.

“AND THIS IS LIFE ETERNAL, THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW THE ONLY TRUE GOD AND JESUS CHRIST WHOM THOU HAST SENT.” JOHN 17: 3

WE COULD KNOW THE LIVING GOD ONLY THROUGH JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE WAY,
THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE FOR NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER BUT BY HIM.
John 14: 6
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO KNOW, FOR IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERY DAY LIVING EACH OF US ARE FACED WITH THE FACT OF ETERNITY!!!

IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE TRUE GOD AND JESUS CHRIST WHOM HE SENT, YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS AND BE LOST FOREVER.
NO SIN (BIG SIN OR SMALL SIN) WILL BE ALLOWED IN HEAVEN AND THE ONLY OTHER PLACE IN ETERNITY IS HELL!
JESUS WARNED US ABOUT HELL AND TOLD US IT WAS PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS.
JESUS ALSO TOLD US,, “GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY
BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE
EVERLASTING LIFE” JOHN 3; 16

THE BIBLE SAYS, “ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.” Romans 3: 23

AND IN Romans 6: 23 WE READ, ‘THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE.”

GOD IS NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH SO HE GAVE HIS SON TO PAY THE
PENALTY FOR THE SIN OF THE WHOLE WORLD – WHERE YOU AND I LIVE.

JESUS WAS BORN OF VIRGIN MARY, BORN WITHOUT SIN AND HE LIVED A SINLESS LIFE.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD FOR NO ONE ELSE SUFFERED SUCH
PAIN AND AGONY AND SHAME ON THAT CRUEL CROSS, AND DIED SEALING OUR
REDEMPTION WITH HIS BLOOD! HALLELUJAH!!!
THOUGH HE DIED AND WAS BURIED, ON THE THIRD DAY GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD!
JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE FOREVER! GOD HAS MADE HIS CHRIST, LORD!
HIS RESURRECTION GUARANTEES HE CAN SAVE ANYONE WHO COMES TO HIM AND HE PROMISED NEVER TO TURN ANYONE AWAY! HALLELUJAH!!!

JESUS CHRIST IS NOT ON THE CROSS NOR IS HE IN THE TOMB FOR THEY ARE BOTH EMPTY!
YOU COULD PROVE THE LIVING CHRIST BY SEEKING HIM WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND
HE WILL BE FOUND OF YOU! HE IS ALIVE SO HE WILL RESPOND.

YOU AND I WILL LIVE FOREVER IN ETERNITY, IN HEAVEN OR HELL.
THE OFFER OF ETERNAL LIFE IS TO WHOSOEVER BELIEVES AND RECEIVES HIM
SHALL NEVER PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. HALLELUJAH!!!

AS A TEENAGER I WAS RAISED IN A CHRISTIAN HOME I DID KNOW ABOUT JESUS – I
KNEW THERE IS A GOD -HEAVEN - AND A HELL. TO ME GOD WAS ABSTRACT AND FAR
AWAY IN HEAVEN. I DID NOT REALIZE I WAS BORN A SINNER AND NEEDED A
SAVIOR TO TAKE ME TO HEAVEN.
I THOUGHT I KNEW GOD AND WAS READY FOR HEAVEN.
OH, HOW I PRAISE GOD FOR ALLOWING ME TO HEAR THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND GIVING ME A REVELATION OF HIS SON.
THE POWER OF HIS BLOOD BROKE THE POWER OF THE DEVIL’S DOMINION OVER ME! GLORY TO GOD!!

JUST LIKE ME, THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE DECEIVED THINKING THEY ARE
READY TO GO TO HEAVEN AND KNOW GOD, BUT THEY ONLY KNOW ABOUT HIM.

NOW TO SOME OF YOU THIS IS YOUR LAST MESSAGE LIKE THE SPIRIT OF GOD
REVEALED - WHAT IS YOUR ANSWER TO THE QUESTION JESUS CHRIST ASKED – WHOM
DO YOU SAY I AM?

LATER, WHEN PETER WAS PREACHING HE SAID, ‘NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN
ANY OTHER: FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN,
WHEREBY YE MUST BE SAVED.” ACTS 4: 12


IT IS NOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PLACE YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST!
YOUR ANSWER TO HIM WILL DECIDE YOUR DESTINY – HEAVEN OR HELL.
ETERNITY IS TOO FINAL TO DIE WITHOUT CHRIST!
ETERNITY IS A BREATH AWAY!
JESUS CHRIST IS A PRAYER AWAY!

JESUS INVITES YOU NOW – “COME UNTO ME ALL YE THAT LABOR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST” Matt. 11: 28

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION YOU WILL EVER MAKE IN LIFE.
IT IS A DECISION CONCERNING YOUR PLACE IN ETERNITY.
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT TOMORROW HOLDS FOR US, BUT GOD IN HIS LOVE FOR YOU GIVES YOU THIS OPPORTUNITY TO GET RIGHT WITH HIM.
REPENT, AND FORSAKE SIN AND YOU WILL FIND MERCY AS YOU COME TO HIM
