Today, we are wrapping up our study of Jesus in the Old Testament. I’m so glad we’ve been able to pull back the curtain of history and get a glimpse of God’s glorious revelation of Himself to mere man long before the birth of Christ.
During this most wonderful time of the year it’s easy to get our hearts fixed on the babe lying in a manger but Jesus is truly the Great I Am. He has always been. He will always be. He is God.
Revelation 1:8 declares the eternally, unchanging nature of Christ…
“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.”
Our precious Lord made Himself known in days of old declaring throughout the corridors of time not only that He is God, but that He loves us and desires a relationship with us.
We have found Him to be:
- The Covenant making and covenant keeping God as “The Son of Man” for “The Children of God”
- The permanent reminder of of God’s salvation as “The Lamb of God”
- The Promised One who is the “Christ of Old Testament Prophecy” – the One who fulfilled every prophecy of Himself
- The One who made Himself known in what is called theophanies reminding us that “Before He Came, He Came”
Aren’t you glad Jesus has chosen to saturate history with His presence and allow us to see He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
