East main informer, 10 15-19

  1. 1. 4 Vol. 44 October 15, 2019 Number 40 The Autobiography of Jesus Allen Webster The closest Jesus came to writing a book while on earth was when He stooped in the presence of the sinful woman’s accusers and scratched something in the dirt (John 8: 6, 8). He was many things while on earth, but a writer was not one of them. That changed when Jesus returned to heaven. According to Revelation 1:1, Jesus sent a revelation back to earth from heaven. Revelation (apokalupsis) means “an uncovering” so you could say He is a mystery writer. The book of Revelation is not only a revelation from Christ, but also a revelation about Christ. He is both the author and the subject. In that sense, the last book of the Bible is Christ’s autobiography. In it He is the Priest-King (chapter 1), the Judge of churches (2-3), the Creator (4), the Redeemer (5), the Conqueror (6-20), and the Bridegroom (21-22). It begins with a vision of His glory, wisdom, and power (1) and ends with a prayer for Him to come quickly (22:7, 12, 20). One of the more thought-provoking questions of the New Testament is, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?” (Matthew 22:42). Perhaps no greater block of material is found in answering the question than His autobiography. Revelation has much to say about all three persons of the Godhead, but it is especially clear in its presentation of the exalted resurrected Christ who has received all authority to judge the earth. The Book tells us much about the offices Christ holds and the attributes He possesses. He is called Jesus Christ (1:1), the firstborn from the dead, the ruler over the kings of the earth (1:5), the First and the Last (1:17), He who lives (1:18), the Son of God (2:18), holy and true (3:7), the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God (3:14), the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David (5:5), a Lamb (5:6), Faithful and True (19:11), The Word of God (19:13), KINGS OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS (19:16), Alpha and Omega (22:13), the Bright and Morning Star (22:16), and the Lord Jesus Christ (22:21). A blessing awaits those who study the Book (1:3), so why not delve into it this week? It points a finger at Jesus and focuses attention on Him (John 1:37). –via “House to House: Heart to Heart” Vol. 23, No. 2 ELDERS Mike Childers..............397-6453 Dennis Hallmark .........255-5557 Mark Hitt.....................322-0917 Bobby Lindley.............260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan.................419-5552 William Harris.............416-8149 Ricky Lindsey .............255-8136 Jeff Mansel..................871-0357 Jimmy Spearman.........840-8957 Michael Wilson ...........891-0891 PREACHER Barry Kennedy ...

  2. 2. Just Waiting A family was fishing at the pier. Dad was watching bobbers while his two sons, ages twelve and three, were playing along the dock. The older boy was watching his brother, but he got distracted. Three-year-old Billy thought that it would be a good time to see if he could reach the bottom. He fell into the water, which was five or six feet deep. The splash alerted his brother who screamed for help. Dad jumped in and swam down but couldn’t see anything. Sick with panic, he felt along the bottom. On his way up, he felt Billy’s arms locked around a dock post, about four feet under the surface. After prying the boy’s fingers loose, father and son broke the surface of the water and climbed onto the pier. Dad asked him, “What on earth were you doing hanging onto the post so far under water?” Billy answered in a child’s mater of fact way: “I was just waiting for you, Dad.” Jesus plunged into this dark, gloomy world on a rescue mission, to save us from drowning in sin…a rescue mission for us who are barely hanging on…a rescue mission for us who were lost in the darkness (John 1:14). –Author Unknown –via “House to House: Heart to Heart” Vol. 23, No. 3 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pine Vale’s Fall Pantry Drive East Main will be collecting items for Pine Vale’s fall pantry drive for 2 more weeks.
