Some people may admire God for His way is superior, as others wonder why did the Creator of all that is …choose 4 guys to pen the inspired Gospels of the New Testament? First and foremost because Almighty God preordained those who would pen His word as it is written. Hebrews 1:3-4 NKJV. “Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, (Jesus) sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” The entire Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit so we might inquire of Him who is represented in all the highlighted H‘s?
Hebrews 3:1-6 NKJV “Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house. For this One (Jesus) has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, but Christ as a Son over His own house.” It is wise to pause and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to us individually before we dive deeper into His Word. The Holy Spirit is our Teacher and we learn all mysterious through Him. For wherever the name of Jesus is exalted, the Spirit of God is there to teach us through His anointing. Colossians 2:9 NIV “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.” May this scripture burn up all that is in you that is not from God Almighty as we open our hearts and minds to be purified by the fire of Truth.
Jesus is the Architect, Creator and Builder of the church, and “He was with God in the beginning.” John 1:1 Why did the Architect choose Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to pen the FOUR GOSPELS? Each Gospel represents one of the four faces on the single head of the Seraph at the throne of God. Matthew represents the Kingship of Jesus and he begins by listing the genealogy of Jesus as he quotes old testament passages. Mark depicts Jesus as the Servant. Jesus serves the brokenness of humanity. It is the shortest Gospel, without genealogy but it has the most miracles. Luke declares repeatedly that Jesus is the Son of Man who combined His humanity with His divinity at the same time. John presents Jesus Christ as a direct descendant from God. In the book of Revelation and Ezekiel we learn that before the throne of God, day and night, the Seraphs reflect the glory of God. The Seraphs have one head with four faces, one is the face of a Man (Luke the Son of man), the face of an Eagle (John), the face of an Ox (Mark depicts a Servant carrying the load) and the face of a Lion (Matthew the tribe of Judah).
Colossians 2:10 The Message “Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.” Listen to Pastor Jack as he reveals WHY there are 4 Gospels.
Matthew 7:24-25 NIV “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Jesus tells us to be wise and put His Word into practice. In this way we build our faith on the solid foundation of Scripture, alone. We must toss out any man made doctrine that was added to God’s word. If we mix cement with Jello, the foundation we pour out to others will lead people astray as we wobble and fall. God Himself declared that every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. 1 John 2:24-27 NIV “ If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
John 17: 6-8 NIV “I have revealed You to those whom You gave Me out of the world. They were Yours; You gave them to Me and they have obeyed Your word. Now they know that everything You have given Me comes from You. For I gave them the words You gave Me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from You, and they believed that You sent me.” John 17:11 NIV “I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect them by the power of Your name, the name You gave Me, so that they may be one as we are One.” The name that is above every name, Jesus, Yeshua, the King of kings and Lord of all. We are wise to be in AWE of the Creator of all that is. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To remain in Him, we are to believe that the entire Word of God is by His will, that we receive His pure unaltered Word to mean what it says. Reverential awe is due His Deity for His ways are not ours.
