"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30.

"My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:2.

If believing and knowing Jesus Christ means eternal life (John 3:16; 17:3), then we must know who He is and is not. This simple, self-study is written for men, women, youth, and children everywhere in hopes of their being right with Jesus and ready for His soon, glorious second advent (Luke 21:25-36). After studying it, please share it with someone else. Thank you.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith." Romans 1:16, 17. (Remember the gospel commission in Matthew 28:18-20.)The ceremonial laws and the ceremonial system were established and introduced by God after man transgressed. Before the time of Moses, the Bible tells us that Abraham, Abel, Cain, and Job offered sacrifices. (Hebrews 11; Genesis 4, 22; and 8; Job 1.)


There are many names, titles, and duties of Christ found in the Bible.

Jesus asked His disciples when on earth almost two thousand years ago, "Whom do men say that I am?" (Mark 8:27) They answered, "John the Baptist, Elijah, or one of the prophets". (Mark 8:28)

Many are getting it wrong again today. Some believe that Jesus was only a good man, an insignificant person in history, a prophet only, or Michael the archangel.

Dear Reader, who do you say Jesus is? Hopefully, like the apostle Peter, you can say that Jesus is the Christ (Mark 8:29), and also your personal Savior. (Remember, the Bible never calls Jesus a created angel or non-deity, but Deity in the flesh, as we have previously seen.)

"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-3.

"He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:20, 21.

"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began." Acts 3:19-21.
