Who is Jesus?
Mark 12: 35-37
“While Jesus was teaching in the temple courts, he asked, “Why do the teachers of the law say that the Messiah is the son of David? 36 David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: “‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”’ 37 David himself calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?” The large crowd listened to him with delight.”
Within the question lies the answer.
Jesus is revealing that he is more than human. He is not just the son of David which everyone knew as his genealogy but that He is Lord, He is Divine. No father calls his son ‘Lord’ so why did David do this?
Apostle Peter knew as he quotes this same text in Psalm 110 in Acts 2:34.
Peter shows how David was prophesying of the coming of Christ. Let me write it like this: David writes, “God said to my Christ, “Sit at my right hand …”
God said to David’s Lord (Jesus).
David was prophesying of the Christ to come. He knew He would be Divine.
Jesus asks the question and the answer lies within that question. He knew who he was and chose the last few days before his crucifixion to reveal it.
Acknowledge again today the Lordship of Christ.
The position of Christ indicates His authority and His power.
The Bible refers to the right hand as a place of refuge and protection. A place where blessing is declared. A place of intercession. Where authority over all powers is established.
And where is Jesus? At the right hand. Therefore, Jesus is God.
Because Jesus is at God’s right hand then there is nothing you are facing today that He cannot help you through.
Call upon God’s right hand today to move in your life.
