While thinking and meditating on the Gospels, which IS good news, I saw a unity working through the Gospels, the Acts and the Epistles. In the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Our Messiah is recorded in His human life as "JESUS". In the Acts He is seen in power and authority as "CHRIST".In the Epistles(letters)He is revealed to us as "Lord"!!! So, "in JESUS CHRIST our LORD", the revelation sought by all of humankind desiring a Prophet, a Priest, and a King is realized! Jesus the Prophet, Christ the Priest, and the Lord as the King! The Prophet to reveal, the Priest to redeem, and the King to rule...It IS the "GOOD NEWS" the whole world is seeking, JESUS CHRIST our LORD is the answer!!! AMEN...selah.
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
