To Him, give all the prophets witness that through His name whosoever believed in Him shall receive remission of sins (Acts 10:43).
Before anyone can have Christ, they must first have the Scriptures. Without the Bible, there can be no knowledge of Christ the Lord. It is only in God’s holy word that Christ is fully revealed — in the volume of the book it is written of Him.
All the teaching is concerning Him. In fact, it is called the Doctrine of Christ (2 John 9). All the prophecies are fulfilled in Him, all the law is fulfilled by Him, all the ceremonies find their fulfillment in Him and every sacrifice is pointed to His one great sacrifice.
The offices of prophet, priest and king are combined in Him. No wonder that the Scriptures declare that “Christ is all in all” (Col. 3-11). God almighty is revealed in Christ Jesus the Lord, for in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
Our Lord said; “Neither knowing any man the father save the son, and He to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him. All the promises in Him are yea and amen.” His name is the first mentioned in the New Testament (Matthew 1:1), and the last in (Revelation 22:21).
Man cannot trust an unknown or unrevealed Christ, and the only book in all the world, the Bible, the Holy Scripture, can make Him known. Sadly, what many preachers and people see from the Scripture is that God has a wonderful plan for your life. If you follow His plan, all will be well with you and yours.
All that God has for any sinner who is outside of hell is found in Christ, His Son. All spiritual blessings are given us in heavenly places in Christ. Many of us are looking for everything in Scripture, but Christ, we are looking for laws to keep, works to be done, conditions to be fulfilled.
Thank God we are accepted in the beloved, and they who know thy name will put their trust in thee. For thou Lord hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
