In discovering who Jesus is, every Christian would automatically go to the Book of John. Speaking of Jesus Christ, our Savior, the answer lies in John 1:1-4,14: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as
of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness, where He fasted for forty days. He was extremely hungry after forty days and the devil tempted Him to make bread out stones. Although Jesus had the power to do it, he told the devil that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. If Jesus had not cared about us and weakened and given into His body wanting to eat, none of us could have been saved.
In the second attempt by the devil to bring Jesus down, he took Jesus up into the holy city, and sat Him on a pinnacle of the temple. The devil told Jesus to throw Himself down. Angels would catch Him. This was another attempt by the devil to keep us from being saved. Jesus said to him, "It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."
The third temptation is about worship. The devil took Jesus up unto a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. He said, all these things will I give you, if you will fall down and worship me. "Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve." (see Matthew 4:1-11)
Resisting the devil made him flee from Jesus. Jesus was in complete submission to His Father in Heaven and proved it to the devil. Jesus also confirmed that His Kindom is indeed not of this world. Jesus was confronted again later by Pontius Pilate and questioned if he is the King of the Jews, "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
"Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice." (John 18:36,37)
God could totally depend on Jesus to carry out what was expected of Him, even giving His life on the cross, because He loved His father in heaven more than Himself.
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." (John 14:1 KJV) "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." (1 Peter 1:3-5)
Out of love for what our Savior did for us the Apostle Peter wrote: "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned (genuine) love of the brethren , [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently:
"Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." (1 Peter :22-25)
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed.
"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls. Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things. (1 Peter 1:3..12)
At a time in the very near future, " ..the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
