His Name Is Wonderful - Isaiah 9:1-7 -Dr. Leon Foote



Tuesday, July 1 
Read:
lsaiah 9:1.7

His Name is
Wonderful

...his name shall be
called Wonderful...
- lsaiah 9:6

The word wonderful has many shades of mean-
ing such as causing wonder, that's Jesus,
marvelous, that's Jesus, remarkable, that's Him,
full of wonder, yes, out of the ordinary that's
Jesus also. We could go on, but let me give one
more meaning of the word wonderful, beyond
expectations. His mercy and grace does more
for us than we could expect.
Jesus was wonderful in eternity past where
Isaiah 6 tells us the angels worshipped him.
He was wonderful in the Old Testament as He
met Hagar in the wilderness, He had lunch
with Abraham, He wrestled with Jacob, He met
Samson's parents, He talked with Moses and
Gideon, and Judges l3: 19 says that" .. .and the
angel did wondrously. . .".

Jesus has a wonderful birth as one says caus-
ing surprise. No birth has ever been, nor can ever be like His. He
was born of a virgin in a stable, but a wonderful birth welcomed
by angels.

Jesus lived a wonderful life here upon planet earth. His words were
wonderful. "...Never_man spake like this man.,, (John 7:46). His
works were wonderful as He went about doing good, helping at a
marriage, healing the sick, feeding the multitudes, and raising the
dead. Jesus died a wonderful death, if death can be called Wonder-
fuI, His death was "...for our sins..." (I Cor. 15:3), and He died
the Just for the unjust to bring us to God in I peter 3:-18 because of
His wonderful love for mankind.

He has a wonderful ascension as the devil, the Romans, and the
priest could not keep Him in the grave! He is coming-again in
wonderful power to take us to a wonderful place.

Too Late

Many will say to me in
that day, Lord, Lord,
have we not prophesied
in thy name? and in
thy name have cast out
devils? and in thy name
done many wonderful
works?
- Matthew 7:22

Two friends died on the same day and at the
same time. They found themselves at the Gate
Keeper. There were two gates: one leading to
hell and the other to heaven. The one man was
very excited as he walked through the gate to
heaven. His friend decided to follow him and as
he reached the gate the Gate Keeper said, "You
cannot go in. You must take the other gate."
The man was puzzled and said: "Why can't I
go with my friend?" The Gate Keeper told him
his friend had special credentials and his name
was written in "The Lambs Book of Life." The
man said," I have done everything my friend has
done. I have been a good person, gave money
to the church, and tried to be kind to everyone.
The Gate Keeper said, "That is good except
one thing. It is not about what you have done
in life, but it is about the One who can get you
through that gate." The man said, Well 'Who is that?"
The Gate Keeper said, "His Name is Jesus and
I see you have turned down His invitation many times while you
were alive. So you see your name is not in "The Lambs Book of
Life" and your friend's name is."  

"I see here that your friend invited you several times to meet Jesus,
but you said, not now," the Gate Keeper said. "So you will have to
go through this other gate."
"What can I do?" asked the man.
The Gate Keeper said: "It is too late now. You should have asked
when you had the chance."

Could it be that you have held off in asking Jesus into your life?
Tomorrow may be too late. Maybe you should do it now!

Words About Baptism

Words About Baptism


Luke 23:38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
  
In this portion of scripture at Jesus's crucifixion.  One of the thieves were saved simply by trusting Christ for salvation.  Baptism was not required for his salvation. 

Baptism is the first step of obedience as a child of God.  At the moment we truly believe and accept Christ as Savior the Holy Spirit comes in to abide with us.  This is what we call being born again.  We are Baptized as a symbol of our old selves being buried into His death and then arising as a new person in Christ Jesus.  Baptism is a public expression to the world that you have came alive in Christ and you are now a new creature. 

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 

To say Baptism is required would mean it takes more than what Christ did at the cross.  Jesus paid the full price at His death and it was enough. 

Once we are saved we are being conformed to the image of Christ throughout our lifetime if we remain faithful.
