The apostle Peter on The Day Of Pentecost said this to the Jews
After Christ Jesus had been crucified:
But you killed the Very Source—the Author—of LIFE,
Whom God raised from the dead.
To this we are witnesses. (Acts 3:15, AMP)
The writer of the Hebrews said this:
Let us Fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our Faith,
Who for the Joy set before Him endured the Cross, scorning its shame,
And sat down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)
The apostle John said this about Christ Jesus:
In the beginning [before all time] was the Word [Christ],
And the Word was with God and the Word was God Himself. [Isa.9:6.]
He was present originally with God.
ALL THINGS were made and came into existence through Him;
And without Him was not even one thing made
That has come into being. (John 1:1-3, AMP)
Scripture makes clear that Christ Jesus is God
And that He is the CREATOR of EVERYTHING that exists.
He is the Author of our Faith.
Without Christ Jesus there would be no Faith.
He imparts, by His Spirit, Faith in all who believe.
Some receive this impartation and grow in it
And others for various reasons reject it or allow it to die.
Christ Jesus is the Perfecter of our Faith, by His Spirit.
Our Faith is Perfected as we allow Him to live In and Through us;
Experiencing Ever Increasing Glory.
The apostle Paul describes it this way:
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's Glory,
Are being Transformed into His likeness with Ever Increasing Glory,
Which comes from the Lord, Who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
The Amplified Bible put it this way:
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold
[In the Word of God] as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord,
Are constantly being Transfigured into His very own Image
In ever increasing Splendor
And from one degree of Glory to another;
[For this comes] from the Lord [Who is ] the Spirit.
(2 Corinthians 3:18, AMP)
THERE IS NO LIFE BUT CHRIST JESUS
He is Life Itself, the Spirit of Life,
God, the Self-existent One.
Christ has granted everyone who has been born a natural life,
But only those who have been Born Again;
Born of the Spirit of Christ;
Who are walking in the Light of Christ,
Have Eternal Life.
Those who have not been Born Again
STAND CONDEMNED BEFORE THE LIVING GOD.
And if they are not Born Again,
Upon natural death, they go to a Devi's Hell.
THE WHOLE WORLD, WITHOUT FAITH IN CHRIST,
Scripture tells us, that in the End,
The Whole World Worships the son of Satan,
The Beast of Revelation, the Antichrist,
Condemning themselves to a Devil's Hell.
Only those whose names
Are written in the Lamb's Book of Life
Escape this Outcome. (Revelation 13:8)
