Jesus Christ Our Anointed Savior
Greetings in the name of Jesus! This is Rob Haymes. This is 15 Minutes With Jesus. Today we’re going to talk about Jesus Christ Our Anointed Savior. Isa 9:6&7, For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Let’s turn to Luke 1:26-38, Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!" But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end." Then Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible." Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her. “Therefore that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God.” Jesus is the Son of God, and He is holy. It is written in Isa 7:14, Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Mat 1:18-25, Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us." She shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. The name “Jesus”, or “Joshua”, means, “The Lord is salvation”. The name “Christ” means, “Messiah”, “The anointed one”. Jesus is the Christ; He is our anointed Savior. Let’s turn to Luke 3:21&22, When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." Chapter 4, verses 1&2, Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted for forty days by the devil… Verse 14, Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee… When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, in the River Jordan, the Holy Spirit came upon Him in a bodily form of a dove. Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit; He was anointed of the Holy Spirit, and His Father spoke to Him from Heaven, out loud, saying, “You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased.” Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit every day to do the will of His Father. He delighted to do His Father’s will because He loves His Father, and His Father loves Him. Not only does the Father love Jesus, but He loves us too, very much. That is why He sent His Son to save us from our sins. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:14&15, And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. God gave His Son on the Cross of Calvary to die for the sins of the whole world, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Verses 18-21, He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God. Jesus said, I am the light of the world; he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 1:1-5, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Verse 14, And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus is the Word of God, and the Father sent Him to become a man; to become His only begotten Son, born of the virgin Mary. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory: the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus is full of grace and truth. Eph 2:4-8, But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. God gave His Son; God so loved the world that He gave His Son, and His Son gave Himself to do His Father’s will and die on that Cross for all our sins; He loved us and washed us from our sins in His own Blood. John the Baptist said of Jesus, Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Jesus became a man. He lived as a man like us, and He was tempted in every way as we are, yet He never sinned. He became the spotless Lamb of God to be offered upon the Cross for all our sins. Everyone who hears of Him; of His loving sacrifice of Himself on the Cross for their sins, and comes to Him in repentance, believing in Him and what He did for them, believing that He died for their sins and rose again from the dead to justify them, shall be saved. Whosoever shall call upon His name: the name of Jesus Christ, shall be saved. Because He humbled Himself to the death of the Cross, the Father has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name above every name, that, at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow, in Heaven, on the Earth, and under the Earth, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Jesus Christ is Lord! Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered.
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me. Jesus is the only way to the Father; to become a son or a daughter of God. He is the way. As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them who believe on His name, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God: born of God. If any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new. Because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into your hearts crying, “Abba, Father”.
Jesus is the truth. He is the Word of God. The Word of God is the truth. He said, If you continue in My Word, you shall be My disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Jesus spoke the truth; He only said what He heard His Father saying. Jesus said, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth hears My voice. Jesus said, Father, sanctify them through your Word; your Word is truth. The Word of God is the truth. Jesus is the truth.
Jesus is the life. John 1:4, In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son Jesus Christ. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus came to save us from our sins, and to give us eternal life with Himself and His Father in His glorious Kingdom. He accomplished it all through His death on the Cross and His resurrection from the dead. It is a finished, complete work which Jesus did for us, but we must repent and believe what He has done; we must receive what He has given us and lay hold on eternal life. We must come to Him, through faith in His sacrifice, and be baptized into His death, burial, and resurrection, being crucified with Him and raised with Him into newness of life. We must become a new creature in Him and receive of His Holy Spirit to walk in newness of life, putting to death the deeds of the flesh; the lusts of our flesh, the pride of this life, and the deceitfulness of riches, to yield to the Holy Spirit, denying ourselves every day, and taking up our cross and following Jesus, as the Holy Spirit will lead us. We must come to Jesus and ask Him to baptize us in the Holy Spirit, that we may serve the Father, in newness of the Spirit, not in the religion and doctrines and traditions of men, which are vain and empty. It’s all about Jesus. It’s not about us, and our ambitions and desires. Greater love has no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends. Jesus loved us, and laid down His life on the Cross to save us from our sins; from eternal torment and damnation. If we will love Him, and lay down our lives for Him and follow Him, doing the will of the Father, yielding to the Holy Spirit every day, walking in His Word: His Word is truth, we will overcome sin, the world and the Devil, as Jesus has overcome it all and is seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. Jesus said, He that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.
Rev 1:5-8, …Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the Earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own Blood, and made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the Earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty”.
