The Only Question Left To Answer

Jesus is older than all of creation, yet he exists today, and for all future generations. He is same as he was yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:8). Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ never changes. So, is it any wonder what Jesus would be teaching and preaching if he walked among men today? Is it any wonder from what source he would have preached?

Can any sincere seeker of the Word say that Jesus preached his own doctrine and his own interpretation of God’s Word? (Jn 7:16,17) Did not Jesus by his own account say that he only spoke what God commanded him to speak, and only did what God commanded him to do? (Jn 12:49,50 f; Jn 5:19) So, if Jesus were present with us today would he not also of necessity preach the exact same Word which is contained within the scriptures without adding his own opinions?

Mankind is always asking themselves, “What would Jesus say, and what would Jesus do”. Yet, we know what Jesus would say and do because the scriptures reveal to us what he said and did, and Jesus changes not.

We are not left to wonder what Christ would preach today, for we have the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16). Jesus would preach the same Word he commissioned his apostles to preach unto all the world (Matt 28:19,20 f; Mk 16:15,16). This is the same gospel Paul certified proceeded from Jesus Christ (Gal 1:11,12). This is the exact same gospel which Peter preached on the day of Pentecost. This is the exact same gospel which was preached to every Christian convert in the New Testament.

This is the gospel which was hidden from other ages, but is now revealed by his holy apostles and prophets by the Holy Spirit (Eph 3:3-6). This is the same gospel that shall judge us come the day of judgment (Rom 2:16 f; Jn 12:48). And if anyone, including the angels in heaven, preaches any other gospel, they shall be accursed (Gal 1:8,9). A gospel which boldly proclaims that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and arose from the dead according to the scriptures (1 Cor 15:1-4). All who believe and confess Jesus is the Christ (Rom 10:9,10), and repents and is baptized for the remission of their sins (Acts 2:38), and remains faithful shall be saved (Rev 2:10). The only question left to answer in this world is not what Jesus would say and do, but rather what we shall say and do once the gospel has been presented to us (Acts 2:37).
