Στη Χημεία, Αυτός μετέτρεψε το νερό σε κρασί.. (Κατά Ιωάννη 2.1-11) Στη Βιολογία, γεννήθηκε χωρίς να έχει συλληφθεί στη κοιλία της μητέρας
Του με τον φυσικό τρόπο.. (Κατά Ματθαίον 1. 18-25)
Στη Φυσική, διέψευσε το νόμο της βαρύτητας, όταν περπάτησε πάνω στα κύματα και όταν ανελήφθη στους ουρανούς. (Κατά Μάρκον 6.49-51)
Στην Οικονομία, απέρριψε τη θεωρία των Μαθηματικών όταν ταΐσε 5.000 άτομα έχοντας μόνο πέντε άρτους και δύο ψάρια και στο τέλος ακόμα περίσσεψαν και δώδεκα κοφίνια γεμάτα.. (Κατά Ματθαίον 14. 17-21)
Στην Ιατρική, θεράπευσε αρρώστους, παράλυτους και τυφλούς χωρίς να τους χορηγήσει κανένα φάρμακο. (Κατά Ματθαίον 9.19-22
& Κατά Ιωάννη 9. 1-15)
Η Ιστορία μίλησε για Αυτόν πριν και μετά από Αυτόν. Αυτός είναι το Άλφα και το Ωμέγα, η αρχή και το τέλος.
Αυτός ονομάσθηκε Θαυμαστός, Σύμβουλος, Άρχοντας Ειρήνης,
Βασιλιάς των Βασιλιάδων και Κύριος των Κυρίων. (Ησαΐας 9.6) Καθώς είναι γραμμένο στην Βίβλο ότι κανένας δεν φτάνει στον
Πατέρα τον ουράνιο παρά μονάχα δια μέσω Αυτού. Αυτός
είναι η μόνη οδός (Κατά Ιωάννη 14.6)
Επομένως.... Ποιός είναι Αυτός ?
Αυτός είναι ο Κύριος , ο Ιησούς Χριστός.
Οι οφθαλμοί που διαβάζουν αυτό το μήνυμα δεν θέλουν φοβηθεί το κακό.
Το πιο Ισχυρό πρόσωπο στην Ιστορία όλου του κόσμου ήταν ο Χριστός.
Αυτός δεν είχε δούλους και παρόλα αυτά τον καλούσαν Κύριο.
Δεν είχε κανέναν τίτλο σπουδών και ωστόσο τον αποκαλούσαν Διδάσκαλο.
Δεν είχε φάρμακα αλλά τον καλούσαν Γιατρό ψυχών και σωμάτων.
Δεν είχε στρατό κι όμως οι βασιλιάδες τον φοβόντουσαν.
Δεν νίκησε ποτέ στρατιωτικές μάχες και παρόλα αυτά κατέκτησε τον κόσμο.
Δεν διέπραξε κάποιο έγκλημα κι όμως σταυρώθηκε.
Ετάφη και παρόλα αυτά ζει.
Είναι τιμή μου να υπηρετώ Αυτόν τον Αρχηγό που μας αγαπάει.
In terms of Chemistry, He turned the water into wine... (John 2:1-11)
In Biology, He was born without having been conceived in His Mother’s
womb the natural way... (Matthew 1:18-25)
In Physics, He defied the law of gravity when He walked on the waves and when He ascended into the heavens... (Mark 6:49-51)
In Economics, He rejected Mathematical theory when He fed 5,000 people having only five loaves and two fish and afterwards still
having 12 baskets filled with leftovers... (Matthew 14:17-21)
In Medicine, He healed the sick, paralyzed and blind without administering any medication. (Matthew 9:19-22 & John 9:1-15)
History spoke of Him before and after Him
He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
He was called Wondrous, Counselor, Prince of Peace, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Isaiah 9:6)
As it is written in the Bible, no one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
So... Who is He?
He is the Lord, Jesus Christ.
The eyes that read this message do not need to fear evil.
The most powerful person in the History of the whole world was Christ.
He had no slaves and yet they called Him Lord.
He had no academic degrees and they nevertheless called Him Teacher
He had no medicines but they called Him Physician of souls and bodies. He had no army and yet the kings were afraid of Him
He won no military battles and nevertheless conquered the world.
He committed no crime and yet they crucified Him.
He was placed in a tomb and yet lives
It is my honor to serve Him Who is the Ruler Who loves us.
