No, it is not, "the Man", it is "The Lord God Creator of all things."
Tuesday October 15th, 2002
I have, on many occasions heard some of you refer to God as the "Man upstairs", "The big Cohuna" and even "the big Guy" and "the Great Father". There was one, a long time ago, that referred to Jesus as "the Man", before I tell you who it was, let me say this to you, you probably would rather not pattern yourself after him.
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged Him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe, and said, "Hail, King of the Jews!" and they smote Him with their hands.
Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, "Behold, I bring Him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in Him." Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe.
And Pilate saith unto them, "Behold the man!" (John 19:1-5)
Do you think Pilate was a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian? Do you think the soldiers who said "Hail, King of the Jews!" were saved? Do you think Pilate or the soldiers are in heaven? Then why do you emulate them and use their terminology for the Lord?
Let us look at how those who we know are Saved referred to the Lord while they were on earth.
In writing his letter to the twelve jewish tribes, James the half brother of the Lord referred to himself as: James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ... (James 1:1)
The other half brother of the Lord, Jude, referred to himself as: Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ,... (Jude 1:1)
Do you think that perhaps, just perhaps, James and Jude were Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians? Do you think that maybe, just maybe they may be in heaven as you read this? If so, why do you insist on calling Jesus by the names used by those who are in everlasting damnation instead of those in Glory with the Lord?
Sometimes I think that some of you are about as smart as the Governor of Maryland, who calls the sniper a coward and just about dares him to strike again.
The Lord be with you all and may He bless you and keep you safe and I thank Him for the beautiful little granddaughter He has given me. Lord please let her be Yours.
Thank You Lord God, Creator of all things,
Your most humble and undeserving servant,
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
