Witnesses By The Holy Spirit

Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. And so, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants on his throne, he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh suffer decay. This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear. For it was not David who ascended into heaven, but he himself says:

The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at My right hand,

Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”’

Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.” — Acts 2:29-36

The patriarch David, entrusted with the throne of Israel, knew of and spoke of the King of kings long before He physically came. The disciples witnessed the resurrection of this eternal King. By the Holy Spirit, received of the Father, we are witnesses of what He reveals — Jesus is both Lord and Christ.

Are you certain that God has made Jesus both Lord and Christ?

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
