Who is this Jesus?

Jesus is of course the Son of God, He is the second person of the Holy Trinity (tri-unity) of God.
 
He is God: 
Jesus is the eternal Son of God, He was present before the world began, He created all things that have been created.   His personality can be seen in the lives and teachings of the scripture (Bible) writers.   In other words this Jesus who came into our lives as described in the Gospels has been present for all eternity with God.   He is present now, today also and He will come again one day to redeem His church.
 
Saviour:
Jesus is first of all our saviour, we need to acknowledge Him as such before we can receive him in any other way.
 
Lord:
Jesus is also our Lord, the one to whom we are living our lives, lives lived for His glory.    
 
King:
Jesus is described as the King of Kings, he is the ruler over the earth and the one to whom every knee will bow and eve
ry tongue confess that He is Lord of all. 
 
Prophet:
Jesus is the prophet of all prophets.   Old testament prophets were described as 'seers' or 'hearers' meaning they saw something in the future or heard something about the future from God.   Even we who are live in a very technical world can only see a dim reflection of what is to come. Jesus being divine however can see all things from beginning to end, he is described as the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, He never changes, He is ther same yesterday today and forever.
 
Priest:
Jesus is described as the Great High Priest of our faith.   He is the one to whom our worship is directed and from whom every good gift eminates.
 
Friend:
Jesus was opposed by the religious establishment of His day.   He was criticised for getting alongside those who needed Him the most.   He was accused of being a friend of sinners.   Of course that is exactly who He is otherwise we are helpless and hopeless.
 
Protector:
Jesus has also become the one who protects us in difficult situations, he is our shield and protector.   The Bible says he sets His angels over us to protect the people of God.
 
Counsellor:
Jesus is described as our Counsellor, He alone has the wisdom to help us make sense of life and its many difficulties.   Casting your care on Him is an important step when life's problems seem insurmounatble.
 
Physician:
Jesus is the healer of every broken part of our being, He can heal physically, emotionally, spiritually, in every way possible.  The Psalmist knew God as his healer.   New Testament characters knew Jesus' healing power too.    We can ask God to heal our bodies, souls and spirits too, he is only a prayer away.
 
Jesus is Central:
One day all men (women too) will bow before Jesus.   Jesus is the Judge of all mankind, the celebrities, the political leaders, the radical revolutionaries.   Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandella and many others like them will be judged by the Lamb of God who is Christ Jesus.
