The “NEW JERUSALEM NEWS” is published to help all the children of God grow with one accord in the faith of Christ, to the level of perfection of Christ, holding on to Christ who is the head, to be built up as one body in Christ and to protect the Church from deceitful teachings in order that its growth be harmonious towards perfection. (Eph 4:11 – 16). JESUS CHRIST, THE GOD! In this world we can see everywhere, wicked men who earn their wealth by unfair means capitalizing on their lie and deceit. One of their tricks is, they note the commodity that is most sought after in the market. People are deceived by the appearance and end up purchasing it. In a few days, its true colour appears. Thereafter the people so cheated hesitate to buy even the original goods. Knowing that God (the Messiah) would come from the Jewish community, satan had raised Theudas, before Jesus Christ came. Theudas claimed himself to be great and 400 people followed him. But these people who followed Theudas were scattered. If there is someone greater than the personality and power of man, it is none other than God. Look at Lord Jesus Christ.
The birth of Christ was beyond the nature of human birth. As prophesied many centuries earlier that a virgin would be with child and bear a son, a virgin named Mary who pledged to be married to Joseph, conceived before they came together, as the Holy Spirit overshadowed her and gave birth to a son. He was Jesus(Mat 1:18 – 23).
As we look at the life histories of other religious leaders, we read that having been ordinary men in the beginning, gained knowledge, received divine benediction or attained enlightenment or learned from some other person afterwards. However, before He was born, the angel foretold of Jesus Christ, “You shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Mat. 1:21). Thus He was born with a purpose. From his early age, He Knew who he was (Luke 2:49; John 13:1). He fulfilled His mission and went back to the place He came from.
As a proof that He is the Lord of the whole world, the calendar has His birth as the beginning of an era and the chronology of his world is referred as BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini or After Christ). Though many emperors had ruled in this world, none had this unique distinction.
Many might have performed breathtaking wonders claiming to be the angel of God or calling Himself Brahma. But they never qualified to lay claim to holiness. Having done wrong things, people blame the supreme the supreme God that all actions are His. Jesus challenged, “Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?” (John 8:46). None could find fault in Him on any count. He was absolutely holy, in whom there was no sin (john 8:46; I john 3:5).
During the time Jesus was in this world, He went around everywhere doing well to mankind. Blind were healed and received sight. At His word, the lame from birth rose up and walked, lepers were healed, demons left the possessed and the wind and the sea calmed down. There was nothing that he could not do. He was Almighty. Even in these days, magicians and those who call themselves incarnates of God perform some wonders; though they too are powerless to do everything that Jesus had done. No magician or religious leader can subdue a true Christian. Jesus, the God is Almighty.
Joseph and Mary who were known as His parents were extremely poor. They were too poor to afford lamb for the sacrifice at the tabernacle. They could bring only two young pigeons for the sacrifice (Lev. 12:8; Luke 2:21-24). He was not a literate (Mark 6:1-3). He did not have anyone’s support to the extent that even His own brothers did not accept Him (john 7:3-5). He foretold that His Works would spread all over the world and as said, Jesus Christ is being preached through out the world. Only truth can prevail. Only that which has life can grow.
Above all things, Jesus rose from the dead. No other man has resurrected after his death. Jesus alone conquered death and still lives, which is above human nature. We are witness that He lives. Jesus Christ is God. He came as a man. His birth is being celebrated as a festival of Christmas. Believe in God. His name is Jesus.
