For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Acts 17:28-30.
Jesus Christ is yet to have an official portrait or image. Many sculptors are competing in the making of his official image. Many paintings and pictures have been produced on his behalf.
Christ is none of these, he is better than the pictures or sculptures.
He is a real person that can be known and felt.
A sculpture, painting or picture is inanimate, only a person can be experienced. The unknown God’s signature is images, pictures, paintings and sculptures. The devil deceives man to worship ignorantly the created rather than the creator. The way, the truth and the life is found in Christ.
Jesus reveals himself personally to all.
There is no better picture or image of Jesus than himself. Everything but his person is fake; the unknown God. Salvation is not optional with Christ, it’s a must to connect with him.
Immortal, invisible, the wise God awaits your call for him.
Salvation gives us access to sonship; offspring of God. He is too close to all and no intermediary is needed to connect with him. You’re too precious to be the offspring of a sculpted image or a computer generated picture. Spiritual connection is the hallmark of salvation and encounter with Christ. The reality is in Christ, no one celebrates fake when original is obtainable.
Christ is the truth, he is alive, and he has a presence. You can meet him, know him and be connected to the only true God.
Say no to idolatry.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”John 17:3.
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”1 John 5:20-21.
