Herein are 201 meaningful appurtenances of Jesus Christ; which makes Him more than 'a fundamental' entrance into the 'halls of fame' inclusive of four other major religious orders; i.e., Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism; and seven other world formidable religious influences which will not be mentioned here. Each have revealing windows uniquely centralizing their enduring appeal and impacted thoughts revered to be sacred writings and traditions of faith. Their familiarity is global and represent a diverse body of world scriptures; but having said that, we believe the substantial Kingdom Message albeit of Christ Jesus arises paramount and central within and throughout comparative religious studies.

Therefore, this article of disclosure invites your investigative inquiry which might largely expand some tactful scopes and dimensions of compelling expressions to grapple with in texts and context for theological expertise and beloved heart-felt studies - extraordinaire! Hopefully, some essence of meanings will further ground you in speaking, writing, praying, and crystallizing a more fully cognizant emphasis for cohesive Christianity and its harmonious creation and narratives. In contemplating the studies of this conspectus, it would be well to acknowledge the following text for the complete listing: "But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law."

In the enlightened verifications of the Christian's inherent beliefs, and believing the blessings of Jesus Christ to be unstoppable in the joy of being enfranchised within and throughout Him; it comes to each Believer's recognition to figure out how to receive and further manage the All Of Himself; because His Love is endless and His Word Is Forever Everlasting in Spiritual reflective/acceptable refinement.

We will, because of a lack of space, only redress on a few of the suggested acquisitions and leave the rest for independent study of our readers'/students' capabilities and discernment. We also realize the antipathies of them, those, and they which approach the Bible as an 'out-of-date' story-telling montage; literary workbook; or antiquated movie-making for cohesive echoings.

We believe though, as you personally study each suggestion herein stated, that you will conclude, as did we, that the Supernatural Spiritual inspirational forcefulness leaves one's sojourn in a More Abundant Lifestyle after Jesus Christ's likeness to being reconciled to the Heavenly Father's Glory!

The Anointed One - Suggestion #1

Only Divinity could claim Who Jesus said He was - The Anointed One, Who came to take the punishment, which we as sinners so deserved, that we might have His Righteousness forever more! "Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, didn't consider equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him, and gave to him the name which is above every name; that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, those on earth, and those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:5-11 (WEB).

"Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee, and news about him spread through all the surrounding area. He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. He entered, as was his custom, into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. The book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. He opened the book, and found the place where it was written, 'The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, to deliver those who are crushed, and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.' He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began to tell them, 'Today, this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.'" Luke 4:14-20 (WEB).

Seed Of The Woman - Suggestion #2

After Adam and Eve had disobeyed God by eating of the forbidden fruit, God pronounced a curse upon the Serpent which Satan used to speak through when he tempted Eve. At the same time, God made a promise, in the following verse, that eventually Satan would be defeated by the Son Of God Who would one day be born from the "seed of the woman" to be the Saviour of all those who accepted His Atonement for them.

"'I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.'" Genesis 3:15 (WEB).

In order for Christ to be the Perfect Substitute to be eligible to pay the price of death brought upon humankind because of sin, He clothed His Divinity with human flesh being placed within the womb of a virgin; grew to maturity; died the death of a sinner; resurrected Himself; and ascended to Heaven to be there forevermore. "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us]." Isaiah 7:14 (Amp.).

"For to us a child is born. To us a son is given; and the government will be on his shoulders. His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, on David's throne, and on his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from that time on, even forever. The zeal of Yahweh of Armies will perform this." Isaiah 9:6-7 (WEB).

First Born Of The Dead - Suggestion #201

Not only did Christ come to live a perfect life, which is impossible for humans to do; and die the death which was ours; but He also was raised back to life thus giving Eternal Life to those who believe. "Now if Christ is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised. If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, and your faith also is in vain." 1 Corinthians 15:12-14 (WEB). Truly Christ was "the firstborn of the dead," for He Himself declared to Martha, "'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies. Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?'" John 11:25-26 (WEB). Hallelujah!

We conclude this abbreviated articulation with the Master's Own Words:

"But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things [suggested here] will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 (WEB) [lps].
