Experience the Proof of Christ’s Divinity   1 comment

Christ Pantocrator

Above:  Christ Pantocrator

Jno. 7, 17

1.  In opposition to Him they denied his divinity.  He met their objection; they could prove it experimentally.

2.  The heart must be taught of God.  He appeals to the reason, but the will and affections must learn obedience.

Heart results must be realized.

3.  Inward aspirations after the divine prepares the eye to behold the divine reality in Christ.  The heart hungry to be loved knows where love is received.

4.  His teaching, when obeyed, satisfies the moral nature, conscience, unrest, etc.  Meets man’s every need.

5.  It leads up to God–pardon, peace and heaven.  Meets his wants in this and the next world.  Surely the true Christ could do no more.  He surprised the world, did more than they expected, and does yet.

6.  The conclusion is inevitable–He is the Christ.  Only a divine being could do all this.

Hence we know for ourselves that his word is truth and that he is divine.  We need not take another word now.

Obey him and prove him all divine and merciful.
