Power of The Same Jesus by Pastor Charles Ewing.
The first scripture in Hebrews 13:8 states that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The author of the book of Hebrews is disputed, with some attributing it to Paul, but it remains unknown who actually wrote it. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, Paul is credited with writing 13, with John, the son of Zebedee, credited with writing one. The only Gentile who wrote two books in the Bible is Luke, who wrote Acts and the Gospel of Luke.
In Acts 1:8, before ascending to heaven, Jesus tells his disciples that they will receive power after the Holy Ghost comes upon them and that they will be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the other parts of the earth. He then ascends to heaven, with two men in white apparel telling the disciples that Jesus will come back in the same manner as he left.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is the same Jesus that was present during the pandemic, the war in Afghanistan, and throughout history. The Gospel of John states that in the beginning, the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word became flesh, and this is Jesus. In Genesis 1:26, God says, “Let us make man in our image,” creating both male and female at the same time. Jesus is our kinsman redeemer in the book of Ruth, and in Psalm 107:20, his Word heals all diseases and sets people free from destruction. In Psalm 27, the Lord is the author’s salvation, strength, and refuge. In Isaiah, the author speaks of a child being born to us, a counselor, Prince of Peace, and a wonderful counselor.
Throughout the Bible, there are types of Christs, with Christ being found in all the books accepted by the canon. Jesus is the one who saves his people, heals the woman with the issue of blood, and the man who lay at the pool of Bethesda. The same Jesus whom Zacchaeus wanted to see when he climbed up a sycamore tree.
