The SAVIOUR


Isaiah 43:11 KJV -  "I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no Saviour." 

Isaiah 45:21-22 KJV - "Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

Philippians 3:20 KJV - "For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:"

2 Timothy 1:10 KJV - " But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:"

1 John 1:14 KJV - "And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world."

To many God is an unknown God. But God has made Himself known through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV - "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

Jesus is none other than God manifest in the flesh, who came into the world to save. There is only one true and living God, and He is both LORD and SAVIOUR in both the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Beside Him there is no SAVIOUR. God alone saves, and He preserves. And this God came into this world in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ as REDEEMER. He is the LAMB of GOD which taketh away the sin of the world. Christ Jesus the Lord is the very WAY of SALVATION. He alone has the very distinct title of SAVIOUR. He alone is the SAVIOUR of men, the SAVIOUR of the world. Christ Jesus has abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through His gospel. Only in Him is there EVERLASTING LIFE. Of we men most miserable, we only have hope in the SAVIOUR. All other gods are false, there is no other LORD, GOD, or SAVIOUR beside Him. 

No longer the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, born that day a Saviour, Christ the Lord. He grew to be a man. He spoke words that were spirit and life. He forgave sins, and healed the sick, and called sinners to repentance. He had mercy upon sinners and saved poor sinners. He went to the cross and there He died for our sins. He was buried. And the third day He arose from the death of the grave. Behold, the SAVIOUR! He ascended up into heaven, and He will return in like manner. From whence we look for the SAVIOUR, the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Titus 2:11-13 KJV - "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;"

Do you have Him as your BLESSED HOPE? Have you come to the SAVIOUR in repentance and faith? Have you been saved by this SAVIOUR? Nothing in this world is worth losing your own soul for...NOTHING. Look unto the SAVIOUR, and be ye saved, for there is no other SAVIOUR whereby we must be saved. NOW is the day of His salvation. NOW is the day to call on His name, and to be saved. He still saves poor sinners...poor sinners like me. 

Amen.
