Who Is Jesus Anyway?

The last song had be sung
and preaching had begun
as I entered the Sanctuary,
I sat down on the last pew.
I heard the preacher saying
"I have a question for you."
"I want answers from the congregation,
I want them loud and clear;
this subject is important,
so speak up, speak out,
so everyone can hear."
"Now here is my question,
please hear what I say,
Iím asking you
who IS Jesus ANYWAY?"

From the right of the congregation
a gentleman raised his hand,
then standing gently to his feet
he said, "Jesus was a very good man."
"Oh yes He was," the preacher said,
"We canít forget His deeds!
He touched the lepers,
healed the sick,
He even raised the dead,
He fed the hungry multitude
with small amounts of bread,
He opened the eyes of a blind man
with dirt into which He spat,
but oh my Friends, though He was good,
HE WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT!"

Another hand went up; the preacher
gave a nod, a young lady stood and said,
"Jesus was the Son of God."
"INDEED HE IS!" the preacher said,
"But, whatever does THAT mean?"

A silence fell for a moment
then the preacher began,
"The Bible says this same thing
about only two men,one of them
is Jesus, the other Adam, the first man.
Because Creator God, Himself prepared
a body for each of them!"
"The Bible says the first son,
brought sin to the human race,
and it was the second Son
Who broke the curse
by dying in our place!"
"Though both these men are called
the son of God,they are by no means equal,
the second must super-cede the first
in order to break the power of the curse."

"When God was creating,
on the sixth day,
Creator God took into His hand
a little piece of clay
and made for our father
Adam, a body that day.
Adam is called the son of God."
"And likewise, but differently
God made a body for Jesus.
When the time was right,
in a virgins womb
the Lord God put together
electrons, protons and neutrons
and all other kinds of matter
that grows a human body,
there He let it incubate
and grow, just like we do,
so that in all things,
He could be like me and you.
But Adam had the breath of God
breathed into his earthen sod.
Jesusí earth grown body
was inhabited by God!"

"In Saint John 1, verses 1-10
this is what we read of Him:
"In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word WAS God"
Then looking over to verse 10,
"The Word became flesh" and among us dwelt
and we, His glory beheld."

"Friends, Jesus told us in many ways,
Who HE was, now hear what He did say;
"Before Abraham was, I AM!" Jesus said,
and we know that Abraham by then
had been a long time dead.
"I AM" a Name God calls Himself,
Jesus claimed it too!
No, Jesus was not confused,
Who He was, He well knew."
"Brothers and Sisters,
when we realize Who Jesus IS
tears fill our eyes!
How could a God so powerful and great,
the God, Whom did all things create
be willing, yes even plan
to live in a body, to be a man?
Yet, He is happy and willing to call
us Brother,"Son of man," He called
Himself more frequently than any other!"

The preacher kept on speaking,
"Some say He was an Angel
in His body here below,
but Godís Word tells us
that simply is not so.
"For whenever, to an angel, did God say,
sit here on My right hand
Ďtil I put Your enemies away?" *(Heb. 1: 1-8)
"Some say He was a Prophet,
in that there is truth,
for God does know the future,
He knows what lies ahead.
and of Jesus, hereís what
The Book has said,
He is a Prophet, a Priest,
The King of Kings,
The Lord of Lords,
The Beginning and the End,
He is the Savior of mankind,
The Christ,Messiah too.
Heís The Lily of The Valley,
The Bright and Morning Star,
He is my God! Lord Jesus,
How beautiful You are!"

"Lord, I love You
for wearing the thorns on Your head,
I love You
for giving Your life in my stead,
I love You
because You first loved me,
and You lowered Yourself,
my Redeemer to be!"
The preacher then raised his head
and to the congregation said,
"I have a question for you,
I want answers loud and clear
so speak up, speak out,
for all the world to hear.
What do you say
who IS Jesus ANYWAY?"
With one loud voice the answer rang,
"Heís GOD!"
And the preacher proclaimed,
"Yes He IS!
and Jesus is His earthly Name!"
Let all here gathered,
who understand,say it altogether,
a loud and hearty AMEN!
