The significance of the son of God, Jesus Christ, is vastly underestimated; it exceeds human capacity for understanding as much as the reality of heaven and eternity.
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross is the most significant and amazing event in the history of the Universe.
Every event revolves around nothing but Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross. Angels in heaven are awe struck by it, and Satan is dumbfounded by it.
His death and resurrection was the beginning of a divine government that will span the Universe in every dimension for all eternity.
The eternal son of God came not to save us from worldly troubles but from the eternal wrath of God against our never dying souls.
Satan tries very hard to make his name appear odious to us to have us foolishly reject our own salvation. What an unfathomable catastrophe for all who fall prey to this deception.
Hebrews 10:29-31 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
For our existence not be centered perfectly on Jesus Christ is a huge mistake. We were created to give glory to the son of God.
If you are among those who hate him.........
Psalms 109:2-6 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause. For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
What a curse it is to be the enemy of God who is the essence of love and goodness, and then to reject his salvation from that state of enmity wrought at such a great cost!
