Bringing to you God's wonderful message as found in the Holy Bible.

"Lord" over all!

It is becoming quite popular to try to trace family roots - to try to find out what happened in your family years and years ago.

The best known and best recorded family history it that of the Lord Jesus Christ. The family line of His mother Mary is traced right back to the first man, Adam. 1*. The family line of His step-father Joseph is traced back as far as Abraham. 2*. Both these genealogies are recorded in God's Word, the Holy Bible.

It is interesting to trace back in one's family to find out about your ancestors. But it would be MIRACULOUS to be able to look into the future and tell about someone who was to be born into your family hundreds or thousands of years later!

Throughout the family line of the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, God had continually given detailed promises regarding Him. These began with promises made to Adam and Eve, 3*. and continued throughout history to many people - such as Abraham, David, and Isaiah. 4*. Mary was the last in the long family line that the Messiah was born to. God made the "impossible" promise to Mary that she as a virgin would be the mother of the Son of God, and He miraculously brought it to pass. 5*.

Jesus was very familiar with His family history! He knew it was public knowledge because it was in the Scriptures and He spoke about it to those who questioned His claims. "How is it that they say the Christ is the Son of David?", He asked them. "David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: `The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."' David calls Him `Lord'. How then can He be his son?" 6*.

All those who had been told in advance about the coming of the Messiah knew without a doubt that He was to be far superior to them. Abraham realised the coming Christ would be the all important "Seed" in his family; David recognised Him as "Lord" over all; and Isaiah gave Him many exalted titles, including "Mighty God"! 7*. Mary knew He alone was "the Holy One", and the One who must be obeyed. 8*.

But now, those who met the Messiah in person despised Him, although the evidence surrounding Him could not be denied. Instead they were ready to accept the teachings and authority of religious leaders.

No one is equal to or able to take the place of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. 9*. Jesus warned His listeners; ‘Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the market-places and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honour at banquets. They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.'" 10*.

Are you going to trust your soul to the words and actions of men wearing "flowing robes"? Or will you put your faith in Jesus Christ, now returned to Heaven, as that unique Lord over all who alone can be your Saviour?

Read these claims and warnings of Jesus in Luke's Gospel chapter 20, verses 41-47.

To read more of Luke's account of the life of Jesus turn to the Gospel of Luke in the Holy Bible.
