Q & A: What does Reverend Deal Say?
‘Christ goes by many names’
Question: Who is the “Messiah” and what does it mean? What are other names of Christ?
Answer: Messiah is a title for Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of the world. Messiah means “anointed one”. “Christos” or Christ refers to an individual who is set apart to serve God. The ‘Messiah’ is not the only name associated with Jesus Christ. Listed are names of Christ. Take an hour to search the scriptures and find the verses that mentions the particular name: Faithful Witness, First begotten from the dead, Prince of the Kings of the earth, Alpha and Omega, He which is, was and is to come; The almighty, Son of Man, He that lives, He that holdeth the seven stars, He who walks among the candlesticks, He who has the double-edged sword, Son of God, He who has eyes like a flame of fire, He that hath the seven spirits of God, He that is holy and true, He that hath the key of David, The Amen, Faithful and true witness, Beginning of God’s creation, Lion of the tribe of Judah, Root of David, The Lamb, Sovereign Lord, Lord, Man child, Kings of the saints, Word of God, King of Kings and Lord of lords, Bright and morning star. Of course many names were not mentioned.
These are called “Messianic Passages”. Scriptures such as: Dt 18:15; Isaiah 9:6-7, 11:1-4, and Isaiah 53; Dan 7:13-14; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Proverbs 30:4, just to name a few. The New Testament is full of Messianic Passages as well.
Prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes. Get involved with a spiritual based Bible Study group to recognize that Christ is to come soon.
