Jesus Christ Our Lord
in Nazareth on the 25th of December year of Our Lord (when the new
calendars began 2007 years ago). Fruit of the spiritual union between
the Blessed Virgin Mary and God the Father.
We call Jesus the Christ, which in Greek means the
perfect man, He is also the Messiah, the one promised in the Holy
Scriptures through all the prophets as the Redeemer, the Savior of the
The birth of Jesus Christ marked the coming of a new era for the people of God.
Therefore the Holy Scriptures are considered Old Testament until their
fulfillment with the coming of Jesus Christ Our Lord. The New
Testament begins with the birth of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the
Anointed, the suffering servant, the Holy One of God.
All the prophets from Moses to John the Baptist
announced the coming of the Messiah, a deliverer for the people of God.
Moses has similarities to Jesus Christ Our Lord, he
fasted for forty days in the desert, and brought the law to the people
of God. He took the people out of Egypt with the help of God, he
prepared them with the Passover which was a purifying meal of
unblemished lamb and unleavened bread. (Jesus Christ is our Passover,
the unblemished lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. )
Moses made them cross the Red sea in order to be delivered. (Jesus
Christ wants us to be purified in his blood to take us out of the Egypt
of our sinfulness into the promised land) Then Jesus Christ Our
Lord is the fulfillment of the Law and confirms the commandments of God
by the gospels and brings peace between God and his people through his
sacrifice on the cross.
In the words of Moses (Acts 3:22-23) Moses said, 'The
Lord your God will raise up for you from your own people a prophet like
me. You must listen to whatever he tells you.
And it will be that everyone who does not listen to that prophet will be
utterly rooted out of the people.'
Jesus Christ Our Lord came to bring the good news of
the Kingdom of Heaven, it all starts with repentance, baptism and the
continuation of a new life in Christ. Believing in Jesus Christ involves
accepting Him as Our Lord and Savior, following his commandments of love
expressed through the Holy Gospels and being sanctified by his
sacraments. We are initiated into Jesus Christ when we are baptized,
then as we grow we have new encounters with Him in the Sacraments that
He established through the Church that He founded. A very powerful
sacrament of Jesus Christ is the sacrament of Penance of the confession
of our sins to an anointed priest of the Catholic Church, by this we are
cleansed of our sins and become worthy to receive Him in the Sacrament
of the Holy Eucharist.
In the Old Testament there were many great prophets
who had the power of God to perform miracles, one of them was Elijah,
who was able to stop the rain for three years and six months, he also
brought a child to life, called fire from heaven to consume his offering
and to kill evil prophets.
But the miracles of Jesus Christ Our Lord surpass all
the miracles of the Old Testament. The Work of God performed through Our
Lord is incomparable and by His signs and wonders He confirmed that He
is the Son of God. His wonders continue to manifest to the believers, to
those who believe in His Word and approach Him with humility. (Mark
16:17-20) And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my
name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they
will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing,
it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they
19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up
into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out
and proclaimed the good news everywhere, while the Lord worked with them
and confirmed the message by the signs that accompanied it.
A true conversion after repentance
involves acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Our Lord and
our Savior. That He can rule our lives, because we
surrender totally to Him and He can reign as king.
