For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. [1 Corinthians 3:11 NAS]
There are four things about the Lord Jesus Christ that can be thought of as forming the corners for that foundation. They are that He truly is all-powerful (omnipotent) and all-knowing (omniscient) and always-present (omnipresent) and perfect in all of His most awesome ways (righteous and holy).
Yes, those four things are also true of our Heavenly Father and His Holy Spirit, and there is very good reason for that. For They truly are [One and the same].
No, this is not meant to try to put Christ Jesus in a box (so to speak). For He truly is so much more than what we can even start to naturally comprehend, but He is well able to allow and enable any of us to know and understand everything that He wants them to, which is what this is meant to help with.
It really cannot be emphasized strongly enough just how important it is to have a clear understanding of those four things. For without that, the only kind of faith that one could really have in Him would be blind, which is of no true and lasting value to either them or Him.
Be assured that the Lord Jesus Christ truly is all-powerful. For by Him all things were created, and in Him all things hold together [Colossians 1:16-17]. Quite shockingly, most in the Christian community do not believe that this is indeed true. For it they did, they would not put up with it being taught that He never meant for sin to enter into this world, which is, in effect, to claim that He was powerless to prevent it from happening.
Be also assured that the Lord Jesus Christ truly is all-knowing. For not only does He know everything that there is to know about how everything works (so to speak) [Colossians 2:2-3], He also knows everything that there is to know about each and every one of us [Hebrews 4:12-13]. Oh, but this is another thing that most in the Christian community do not want to believe. For if they did, there would not be so many who readily accept that He did not see Satan’s the treachery in Satan until after it was too late.
Yes, the Lord Jesus Christ truly is always-present [Matthew 28:18-20], and this is another thing that most in the Christian community do not want to believe. For if they did, they would not so willing to accept that our Heavenly Father’s Holy Bible is the written Word of God instead of wanting to truly have a very close and personal relationship with its Author, along with being so eager to believe that He established His church in the name of His only begotten Son to serve in His stead.
Alas, is there a good reason to insist that the Lord Jesus Christ truly is perfect in all of His most awesome ways? For who would want to believe it after it being so widely taught and readily accepted for as long as it has that His creation of this world had to have had a serious design flaw or it would not have fallen into disrepair so quickly? Thankfully, the Lord Jesus Christ is not who most “Christians” say (and even believe) He is. For if He was, there would not be any good reason to want to build anything that is meant to last (certainly not for all of eternity) upon having faith in Him, which would mean that there is no hope for any of us.
