Daily Bread 12/28/2022


Daily Bread – December 28, 2022 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) Revelation 1:5 – And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from among the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the Earth. The One Who loves us and has freed us from our sins with His own blood. Jesus being the firstborn from the dead refers to the fact that He is the first one Who was resurrected from the dead with an immortal and eternal body. Paul also gives the exact same title for Jesus in Colossians 1:18: “And He is the head of the body, the Church; Who is the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead. that he might hold first place in all things.” Jesus is also referred to as, “the first fruits of them that sleep” (1 Corinthians 15:20,23) and “the first that should rise from the dead” (Acts 26:23). That Jesus Christ, our Lord, should be the King over all kings is found in both the Old and New Testaments: “Also, I will make Him a firstborn, higher than the kings of the Earth.” (Psalms 89:27), and “Which in its own time, He shall show the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings, and Lord of lords.” (1 Timothy 6:15) Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
