Sermon 51 - IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU JESUS

by Douglas Amobi

The words of this simple song meant a lot to me when I heard it. The words say, "It is only you Jesus, is only you, is only you Jesus, is only you."

It's All About Jesus This song talks about the majesty and awesomeness of Jesus, the Christ of God. The book of Philippians 2:8-11 reads, "And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross. Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a NAME which is above every name: That at the name of JESUS EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, OF THINGS IN HEAVEN, AND THINGS IN THE EARTH AND THINGS UNDER THE EARTH; and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER."

"Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven," ACTS 1:11. This was talking about the return of Jesus Christ. He is now in heaven but will surely come back. Some will meet him in the air at the translation and others, when he touches down in Jerusalem for the 1000 years rule, others at the white throne judgment; whichever, it is all about Jesus.

Everything is about the name Jesus. What does the name mean, what can the name do, and who is really this Jesus? ACTS 4:10-12 "be it known unto you all, and all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." No one can be saved except they accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Acts 2:21 "And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." It is all about Jesus, for he is the only one that can save.

"Therefore, let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, both Lord and Christ, " Acts 2:36; this is amazing, that JESUS is both CHRIST and LORD. Ephesians 4:5, talks about ONE LORD. Revelations 4:11 "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." In Revelations 4:8 it reads, "And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within; and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." This Lord who was (on the cross, dead and buried and rose on the third day), and is (right now in heaven), and is to come (translation, millennium, the white throne, new heaven and new earth) all refer to JESUS who is both CHRIST and LORD. It is all about you Jesus.

It is baffling, how that mankind cannot appreciate the secrets of God, made manifest. The greatest secret between God and man is Jesus Christ, and the greatest revelation to man from God is Jesus Christ; and yet man is still lost and in doubt. We need to realize that it is all about Jesus, whether in heaven far above, where the throne of grace is; or down beneath the earth, hell, where the seat of Satan is (King David said, if I go down to hell thou art there); or on earth, the footstool of God, the home of man. We shall examine the testimony of those who have stayed around him longer than we have.

  1. Revelations 4, 6-8 the four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind, staying in the midst and around the throne of God said,"Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." Who are these living creatures, they can think, talk and know a whole lot, and are staying around and in the midst of the throne. They know when he came to earth and died on the cross (WAS), and that was when God died as Jesus. Who (IS) because he is right now with them in heaven, and they know (WHO IS TO COME). These are their testimonies, they know who they are worshipping and talking about. It is all about JESUS.

  2. Revelations 11:16-17, And the four and twenty elders, who sat before God on their thrones, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God saying, " we give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who art, and wast, and art to come, because thou hast taken to thee, thy great power, and hast reigned." They knew who they were talking about; IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU JESUS.

  3. Angels gave various testimonies that point to JESUS, BECAUSE ALL THINGS ARE ABOUT HIM.

  4. At the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established. These are the testimonies of those who have been around the throne that we hope to gather around. Their testimonies are all about JESUS.

  5. Revelations 19:10 "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not! I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God; for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." As you can see it is all about Jesus.

  6. Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ; and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death, Revelation 12 10-11. Both the Lamb and he that sat on the throne refer to the same person, Jesus Christ; it is all about Jesus.
It's All about Jesus1 Who is the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Almighty, the Everlasting Father, the SON, the HOLY SPIRIT, the Prince of peace, the I AM, the Rose of Sharon, Jehovah, Lily of the valley, the WORD, Emmanuel; it is all about the same person, JESUS THE CHRIST. STUDY THESE VERSES;

Genesis 1:1-3; 17:1-8; 18:1-33 Exodus 3:1-7; Isaiah 9:6-7; 43:8-13,25; St John 1:1-14; 2:19; 4:26; 11:26; 20:14-17; Revelation 1:8,11-18; 2:1,8,12,18: 3:1,7, and 14: 5:1-10. Revelation 22:12-21.

  • If you are faithful enough to read these scriptures, you will know that it is all about JESUS THE CHRIST. Then comes the real issue, who do you think that Jesus Christ is; what is your own testimony of him, what has he done for you, what have you done for him?

  • Remember that James 2:19 reads, "THOU BELIEVEST THAT THERE IS ONE God; thou doest well. The devils also believe, and tremble." The devils also tremble because they are rebuked, cast out and defeated by the name of JESUS CHRIST. As you can see it is all about JESUS. He that dwelleth in us (JESUS CHRIST) is greater than he that is in the world, the devil.

  • It's only you Jesus, it's only you, it's only you Jesus, it' only you; AMEN.

  • When you hear about the Lamb of God, St John 1:29-30; Revelation 5:6,7,12: 6:1 and Rev. 21:27 reads, "And there shall in no way enter into it anything that defileth, neither he that worketh abomination, or maketh a lie, but they who are written in the Lamb's book of life." It is all about Jesus the Christ. Is your name in the book of LIFE, have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and God? Time is short, if you have not accepted Jesus as your SAVIOR AND LORD you are in danger.
