Daily Service: Jesus is the Almighty One 

Twenty Fourth in the series “Jesus is”  – I will include scriptures, references,

Almighty One  “…who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Rev. 1:8

Revelation1:8 AMP I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all). [Isa. 9:6.]

[1] Isaiah 9:6 AMP  For to us a Child is born, to us, a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. [Isa. 25:1; 40:9-11; Matt. 28:18; Luke 2:11.][2]

Daily Service: Jesus is the Head of the Church 

Twenty Third in the series “Jesus is”  – I will include scriptures, references,
graphics, and songs also.

Head of the Church – “And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church.” Eph. 1:22

  • “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh, I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church . . .” (Col. 1:24).

Since the church is Jesus’ body, He is the head of the church.

  • “And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church” (Eph. 1:22).

Here are some similar figures of speech relating to Jesus’ position of prominence and authority:

Head: The Beginning, Firstborn from the Dead
Jesus is head of the church because He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead.

  • “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything” (Col. 1:18).

In the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, Jesus has first place in everything. Therefore, He is head of the church — He has the highest rank in the church (Col. 1:18).

Head: God Put All Things Under Jesus’ Feet
After Jesus rose from the dead, and before ascending into heaven, God gave Him all authority.

  • “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Matt. 28:18).

Since God gave Jesus authority over all things, Jesus has authority over the church.

  • “And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body . . .” (Eph. 1:22-23).

The Church is Subject to Christ
Since Jesus is head of the church, the church must obey Him in everything.

  • “But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything” (Eph. 5:24).

A church teaching the doctrines of men is not Jesus’ church. Rather, it’s a man-made church, based on self-made religion (Col. 2:23).

Such was the case with denominations that had already begun in the first century, one example of which is the Nicolaitans, a Gnostic sect (Rev. 2:615). These people had gone too far and did not have God (2 Jn. 1:9).

Brethren who entertain doctrines from other religions, such as the Nicolaitans must repent, or they’ll be lost for eternity (Rev. 2-3).

And churches that adopt the doctrines of men and do not repent, are removed by Jesus as a congregation of His people, and become His enemies.

  • “‘Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place — unless you repent” (Rev. 2:5).
  • “‘So you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth‘” (Rev. 2:15-16).

As Head of the Church, Jesus is the Savior
Jesus is head of the church, being the Savior of the body.

  • “For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body” (Eph. 5:23).
