The One Great Subject in the Scriptures (The Shorter Version)

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

People sometimes read the Bible a lifetime without ever knowing or discovering the one great subject in the Scriptures. Without the subject, the Bible may as well be all Greek or only spoken in Latin because without the subject the content is utterly void of true spiritual understanding. Jesus Christ is the subject of the Bible, no matter where we read in the Scriptures – either from the Old Testament or from the New Testament Scripture – they both foretell or foretold about the Savior of the world (in past, present, and future realities). As we find Jesus Christ in the Scriptures – he alone, and only he reveals the Father to us. Jesus Christ reveals unspoken truths to the heart of searching men and women, young and old. I cannot, nor can anyone else prove God to be real because God is Spirit, and Spirit is beyond or outside the realm of the five senses, yet Christ indeed reveals God to the heart of one’s own understanding as (and only when) we discover Christ within the written Word.  Whether the written Word is spoken, preached, or read, the absolute mission of Christ is to make known His Father. This is why the believers in the Scriptures preached Jesus Christ! When Jesus Christ became known, he then can begin revealing God to the heart of people who crave for righteous judgment, for eternal life, and for spiritual understanding.

John 6:63a – . . . the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The actual voice of Jesus Christ still speaks to our hearts words that cannot be uttered, only thought, only spiritually realized, and only given to the believer. Jesus said “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me” (John 5:39). Here, Jesus was referring to the Old Testament, for when he spoke these words, the New Testament was not yet written. The words “ye think ye have eternal life” were not written to suggest doubt, but rather that the Scriptures reveal Christ to our minds, to our thinking processes – and from our thinking the Scriptures – true believing functions. The Old Testament scriptures reveal Jesus Christ; in truth every writer of the Old Testament wrote divine revelations concerning Jesus Christ. Below in John chapter 5, Jesus is speaking to a group of people who refused to believe the words he spoke:

John 5:46-47:
-46:  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
-47:  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Acts 3:21-22:
-21:  Whom the heaven must receive {Jesus Christ, who is in heaven} until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
-22:  For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me {Moses}; him {Jesus Christ} shall ye hear {in your heart} in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

As Jesus Christ was and still is the underlying subject of the Old Testament, he is also the true subject of the New Testament, revealing to the spiritual heart of believers the true essence of God. The Apostle Peter summed it up quite well by saying to Jesus “. . . Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God” (John 6:68b-69). Today, Jesus Christ is still alive, still fulfilling his mission of revealing God to believers who look to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ can and will continue revealing his Father to us as we continue looking to him in the Scriptures. Jesus Christ stands at the threshold of eternity, knocking and asking for us to allow him into our life and us into his (Revelation 3:20), for he is still the power and wisdom of God (I Corinthians 1:24).

Ah, So Perfect, So Awesome

“Critics so often see wasted space in three repetitive Gospels and one out of place; however, we notice a multiplicity of exciting details.

The skeptics see imperfect documents; nevertheless, we perceive the perfection of beauty in every word.

The cynics see unbelievable legends and myths; though, we witness authentic revelations of the Son of God who is the way.

The agnostics see in the spirit of blindness and carelessness ― inconsistency, their eyes were holden that they should not know him– Luke 24:16, nonetheless, we observe glimpses and revelations from the spirit of truth that opens the joy and rejoicing of our hearts, And their eyes were opened, and they knew him– Luke 24:31.

The pessimists see incomplete thoughts and sentences; conversely, we discern what our faith has afforded us, wholeness, and with our spiritual understanding we delightfully walk with Jesus by the way and say, one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures– Luke 24:32.” ~LMJ~

Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Her Terrible Pain of Loss!

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

It was a dark day for the Christian world to hear and realize that Mother Teresa actually wrote of her doubts about the existence of God.

She wrote: “I am told God lives in me — and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul.”
“I want God with all the power of my soul — and yet between us there is terrible separation.”
“I feel just that terrible pain of loss, of God not wanting me, of God not being God, of God not really existing.”

The above quotations and many others are from newly released letters and are currently riding across the airwaves in news stories and commentaries from her personal thoughts that have been compiled in a new book titled, “Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light.” Mother Teresa was without a doubt a great person and saintly women of God who helped inspire and led many people towards the light, yet she was somewhat tormented from within her heart as she wanted to see and believe more than she saw. She was unable to reach her personal goals of realizing God in her, just as all too many professing Christians think, believe, and come face-to-face with similar letdowns while still hoping and searching for God.

In our eBooklet series titled: The Golden Thread, you will learn that Jesus Christ is the link to God Himself; as Jesus confessed “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” When Christ touches your soul, when you begin seeing him, not only throughout God’s Word but also in your own life, then the darkness and coldness and emptiness, and as well the terrible separation between a Christian believer and his or her God will completely subside. The light of God Himself can illuminate your inner soul through Christ and restore the terrible pain of loss; this is the underlying theme of The Golden Thread series. Through this new and inspiring series, you will find the principles that allow Jesus Christ to show you that God wants you, that He does live in you, and as you learn from this series to increase your faith in Jesus Christ, you will come to experience the certainty of God really existing in your life!

When we look at a good person such as Mother Teresa, for an example, who searched a lifetime and looked for clearcut, heartfelt proofs without ever really knowing whether God is truly real; this story causes one to be saddened for her, especially knowing how kind and giving she was towards even less fortunate souls. Imagine how much more her giving could have meant to her, personally, if she could have realized in her heart the existence of God — greater miracles would have abounded! Now we could also take another person (like you for example) who may be struggling over these same basic issues of looking for God and not knowing how to recognize His voice. If you are still searching, then we would ask you to simply read The Golden Thread series in your quest for God, the reason being is that you would discover Jesus and his continued mission which is to reveal the realities of God in your personal life. We further believe that you will experience your heavenly Father’s acceptance of you from His Word and from within your own heart!

Many people are uncertain about where God’s Son resides other than to think that he may be “upstairs” someplace. These are the great pursuits of the ages, and as well, these are unmistakably answered for the searching believer throughout our new study.

So often, many people are hesitant or even afraid to seek and come to God and see Him for Who He really is, which thankfully, He is known to us as being Love and Light. Take the challenge and do not allow doubts or worries to whelp up into fear that may prevent you from realizing our omnipresent God, but invite His graciousness into your life and heart, and enjoy His love and light. The Golden Thread series was written to help show you how to enjoy His peaceful grace and how to experience His awesome presence and how to receive His delightful presents!

The Golden Thread series offers anyone the chance of a lifetime to discover the heavenly Father in crystal clear, awe-inspiring revelations, and is available, is here, and is presented to you right now! Yes, we say, for you it is only a chance of a lifetime until you experience the definite reality of God residing in your own heart, and then you could never write or even imagine the nonexistence of God because you will have come to know and experience Him personally.

True, if our series is wrong and does not lead you to an unprecedented understanding of God, then you would have donated a little bit of your time to find your Savoir, and just maybe you will discover him living in your heart as a real presence. Now let us turn this around and propose the following. What if we are correct and our research is true, then you will have an abundant, eternal profit to gain from your loving, heavenly Father as you are drawn into an intimate relationship with Him whose desire is to cherish, to love, and to sustain you for all eternity! If you have never known this caring and loving God before, we are so very sorry, but in truth, in The Golden Thread series, you will find your way to the warmth and loving embrace of your heavenly Father!

All in Good Time

“When I first became a Christian believer I had hundreds of questions, and over the years I have received hundreds of answers to my questions, yet I still have questions, perhaps even more than at the start. Yet God continues answering me through His Word, or by hearing a teaching, or I see it in a book, or God inspires me with inspirations and revelations as life seems to go on without too much trouble. This is the same with prayer, we can believe that God’s timetable is always perfect, and when we do receive the answers to our prayers they are usually greater than we could even imagine because God always goes beyond what we can ask or even think (Ephesians 3:20).” ~LMJ~

Daniel – Revealing Our Power and Wisdom of God

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

In the Book of Daniel, we can see the power and wisdom of God that delivered Daniel. Christ is typified in the angel who protected Daniel, and who gave him understanding to outwit his adversaries who tried to snuff out his life.

Daniel lived in captivity in Babylon, and God gave him wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to be able to stand before the kings of Babylon and give righteous counsel and judgments.

In Daniel’s life we see the wisdom of Christ “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). Daniel received wondrous revelations regarding the future because he anticipated his Savior’s coming, and Daniel’s own resurrection.

Daniel wrote of things that even today have yet to be fulfilled or clearly understood.

Daniel 12:8-9:
-8: And I heard {of things to come upon this earth}, but I understood not {the complete details}: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
-9: And he {an angel} said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

What is interesting here is that Daniel did not understand all the details about the future that he was shown, so he asked. Daniel was wise beyond his years because he went to the source of the revelation and asked, rather than guessing.

The angel explained that the revelations were not yet to be revealed, and thus Daniel could not fully understand it all, but at least he had glimpses of the future, which inspired him greatly.

When God seals something, it stays sealed until He has the seal opened. Yet today there are thousands of books written that attempt to explain the revelations of Daniel as though they had received special revelation regarding “the time of the end.”

All of these so-called revelations that attempt to reveal what Daniel heard and saw are mainly fear-motivated to scare people into accepting Jesus Christ. However, when the truth is spoken in love and in the light of God’s true Word, the believers will be inspired to accept Jesus Christ and freed to daily enjoy their escape from the end times as we read, we are to “wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come {emphasis supplied}” I Thessalonians 1:10).

Even the revelations in the Book of Revelation have yet to happen and are still sealed, and the future events recorded therein will not even begin to happen until after the gathering together when Christ returns and takes us (the Church of God) up to heaven.

We, the believers, will not be living on this earth when the revelations of Daniel, John, and others become unsealed and begin to happen.

Today we live in grace rather than in the “day of vengeance,” or the “day of the LORD”; believe me when I say we absolutely would know the difference between the two, because grace and wrath cannot coexist.

It is the height of man’s folly to try to relate future events into the present, claiming that we are living in those days of wrath.  The Bible says that we have been delivered “from the wrath to come” (I Thessalonians 1:10). So those who claim that we are actually living in those future days of wrath are apparently much wiser than God, the Creator of the heavens and earth Who has yet to open those seals.

God’s Word gives us assurance that we have been saved from any and all future wrath (Romans 5:9).  Well, praise God that we know the truth of His healing Word. And to further relieve us from the fears of the current day, Galatians 1:4 records, “Who {Jesus Christ} gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.”

Today in God’s grace, we have past, present, and even future deliverance because God already has “delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us” (II Corinthians 1:10).

Daniel’s friends were delivered from the fiery furnace, showing his friends, as well as us, that believers would also be delivered from going into the pits of hell and revealing to us the power of God.

In the same manner, Daniel was also delivered from the lion’s den and knew through the wisdom of God that he would also be delivered from the Devil who is “as a roaring lion” (I Peter 5:8).

I Corinthians 1:24 says, “Christ {is} the power of God, and the wisdom of God,” because in God’s grace we have received the wisdom and power of God through receiving Christ in our hearts who assures us that we have now and forever eternal deliverance from fear, from the Adversary, and from ALL the wrath to come.

Daniel and the Old Testament believers would enjoy their future deliverance after their resurrection (Daniel 12:2-3).

Thankfully, today we can begin enjoying our deliverance in the here and now because: “Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should {now} walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). The “newness of life” that we can enjoy is revealed to us through “Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”
