The Real Jesus Christ

John 1:1-5 & 14

I ask you today; “Do you know Jesus Christ”? The question reads simple, but it is actually complex. The complexity comes when you consider the depth of your own answer. Many people will answer in different ways. Some say yes. Some say no. Some say yes, and continue to live toward eternal destruction. The next question I ask is all but the same. Do you know the “Real” Jesus Christ?

Jesus Christ is God! In our society it is difficult to think of ourselves as servants. If we believe in the real Jesus Christ we will be just that, servants. The current culture of our nation demands to be accepted as we are without judgement. Many of those who demand to be accepted without change are those who claim to know and love Christ on the grounds of HIs acceptance. The Simple Truth is this; these folks do not know the real Jesus Christ in any form.

The real Jesus does come to us where we are. When He finds us He changes our heart, soul, mind and everything about us. When we are born again we are new creatures. The real Jesus, though He is a perfect gentlemen, challenges all who He calls!

He Challenges What we do.

  • Jesus said if we love Him we will keep His commandments. (John 14:15)

He Challenges Why we do what we do

  • Jesus came to do the will of the Father. If we do anything for anyone other than the Father we do it for the wrong reasons.

He Challenges our Worship

  • When Jesus met with the woman at the well He challenged her to answer what she was doing with the man she lived with. He also challenged her worship. (John ch. 4)

Our worship will answer all the above. How, who and why we worship will explain our position in Christ. Do we know the real Jesus Christ or do we only have a fantasy of a Jesus who has no commands, no Deity and no authority. We must understand when we know the Real Christ we only know Him as He is presented in scripture. Not as we dream in our own human mind. If the real Jesus has introduced Himself to you and called you to salvation know this:

Many preach Jesus desires Lordship over our lives. If we Know the Real Jesus Christ He does more than desire Lordship over our lives. He assumes Lordship over us. He takes it.

If He, the Real Christ, has called you and assumed Lordship over you you can answer with a joyful yes to the question; “do you know the Real Christ”? If you have been living in a fantasy with no real transformation ask the question; “do I know the Real Jesus Christ”?

  1. Never Be Deceived America

    Is it possible that today a counterfeit gospel and counterfeit Jesus is being preached in our nation and in the world at large? Just because someone says that they believe in Jesus, does that really mean that they are Christians? Should we believe every person regardless of the way that they live their lives and what they believe in scripture? Well, I believe that we should not. For we read in scripture that their will be some who will try to trouble us, by perverting the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now, the Bible makes it very clear, if someone comes to you preaching another gospel, which is not found in the Word of God, or another Jesus that we have not read about in scripture, then we are on no account to receive them as followers of Christ. Paul the apostle of Jesus Christ, was not fooled he said “they profess that they know God; but in works they deny Him,”

    In 2 John v 9, we read “Whosoever transgresseth and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ hath not God, he that abideth in the doctrine of Christ; he hath both the Father and the Son.” So if anyone comes to you and says, “we believe in Jesus”, but not in the word of God as it is written in the Holy Bible, then we do not receive them, or welcome them, for they are trying to make you doubt God’s Word, and trying to weaken your faith. It is written, “If there come any unto you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed,” {2 John v 10}.

    So beware in these last days do not listen to anyone who does not bring you sound doctrine, always check out everything that you hear in the Holy Scriptures. If you do you will never be deceived, for we must remember the Words of Jesus, “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect,” {Matthew 24 v 24}.
    Dear Saints, let us hold on to God’s Word filling our minds with His truth, if we do we shall never be deceived by what we hear or see.
