The Holy One of Israel

There was a man whose father was God Himself.
(see 1 Chronicles 17:13; Hosea 11:1; Matthew 3:17; Luke 3:22)

He was not a descendant of Adam.

(see Matthew 1:20)

He came down from heaven.

(see John 6:38)

He called Himself – ‘the Son of God’.

(see Luke 1:32)

His mother was a virgin.

(see Isaiah 7:14)

He is also ‘the Son of Man’.

(see Psalm 22:1-31; Daniel 7:13; Matthew 8:20, 16:27; Revelation 1:13)

He is the only person
who gave a name to Himself before He was born.

(see Isaiah 49:1; Matthew 1:21)

He was born as a man to save all sinners in the world.

(see Matthew 18:11; Luke 19:10; John 1:1-3, 1:14, 6:51. 6:53-54, 12:46-48)


Because God’s children are human beings –
made of flesh and blood –

He also became flesh and blood by being born in human form.

For only as a human being could He die,
and only by dying could He break the power of the Devil,
who had the power of death.

(see Hebrews 2:14-15)

He is both the source of David 
and the heir to his throne,
‘the Bright Morning Star’

(see Revelation 22:16)


He came to His own and His own did not receive Him.
(see Isaiah 1:4, 5:19, 5:24, 37:23; John 1:11)

He had no sin.

(see Hebrews 4:15)

As a man, He defeated Satan.

(see Matthew 4:1-11)


He was given by God to His people.
(see Matthew 15:24; Isaiah 9:6-7, 42:6, 49:8, 53:1-12)


He is the ‘One Time Priest’
who used His own blood
to cleanse the sins of all man
and to secure the salvation for all His TRUE believers.
(see Isaiah 55:6-7; Hebrews 9:12; John 6:40)


He laid down His life voluntarily, and
He also had the power to take it again.
(see John 10:18)


He is the Resurrection and the Life.
(see John 11:25; Revelation 1:17-18)


He was the first man
resurrected to eternal life
on the third day following His death.
(see Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:6-7; John  3:13, 11:25-26; 
1 Corinthians 15:4; Revelation 1:17-18)


He was resurrected by His own power.

(see John 14:6; Isaiah 30:15)

to God’s Promised Land – the New Jerusalem,

He is the Light to guide all nations to God.
(see Isaiah 42:1-9)

Only those who believe in Him 
and OBEY Him 
will have eternal life.

(see John 3:36, Matthew 7:21-23)

When you look for Him earnestly, 
you will find Him.

(see Jeremiah 29:13-14; Isaiah 65:1; Matthew 7:7-8)
