Who Is The Christ of the Cross?

It is the old question, still the great and burning question: "What think ye of
Christ?" We must be clear on that first. Though everyone who listens to these
words may know the right answer, yet it can never be out of place for human
lips of clay to tell out the glory and greatness of the Christ of the Cross. Now
God Himself delights to
hear His Son exalted, who is ever His delight; and
besides this, there are unseen silent listeners, good and evil, angels and

Have you ever noticed who first answered this question in the New
Testament? It was not Peter, when in his God-given revelation he declared,
"Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God." Two demons were the first
who confessed Him. They cried out, "What have we to do with Thee, Jesus,
Thou Son of God." Yet man with his darkened mind, his unbelieving heart,
rejects that which a demon does not dare deny. The great religious world
answers the question by calling Him-- "the great leader, the perfect man, the
perfect example," or something else, but robs Him of His highest glory, -- the
Glory of Deity!

To get new glimpses of His matchless Person, the dignity and glory which is
His, is our GREAT NEED, for then shall we realize more fully the cross and
its power.

In His wonderful Person, Jesus is unsearchable. Paul wrote of the
unsearchable Riches of Christ, which include the unsearchableness of His
Person and His Glory. We call certain things in creation "unsearchable"--
unsearchable depths of the sea-- with its wonderful world of animal and
vegetable life, in brilliant colors and of vast dimensions. Or we look at the
great mountain ranges with its hidden treasures of silver and gold, and speak
of their unsearchable riches. And greater still this vast universe, with its
millions of heavenly bodies, as numerous as the sand on the seashore, with its
nebular constellations in an immeasurable distance, inconceivable to the finite
mind. What unknown and unsearchable riches!

Yet what are they all in comparison with the unsearchable Riches of the
Person of our Lord Jesus! He created all these things. The sea is His and He
made it. Moses wrote of Him: "Before the mountains were brought forth, or
ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to
everlasting, thou art God." (Psalm 90:2)

And again, "Of old hast Thou laid the foundations of the earth and the
heavens are the work of Thy hands. They shall perish but thou shalt endure;
yet all of them shall wax old like a garment, like a vesture shalt thou change
them and they shall be changed.
But thou art the same and Thy years shall
have no end.
" (Ps. 102:25-27) And the heavens which declare His glory are
the works of His fingers. We hear Him speak through Isaiah, "To whom then
will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on
high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by
number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that
he is strong in power; not one faileth. (Isaiah 40:25-26 KJV)

Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things. Nor must we forget the unsearchable
Riches of eternal Glory. Throughout all eternity,  the Eternal Godhead-- the
Father, The Word and The Holy Ghost (1John 5:7) always existed. And in
that eternal place of glory He dwelt in the bosom of the Father, sharing His
eternity and His glory. To this He referred when He prayed, "And now Father
glorify Me with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was." What
unsearchable riches must have been His!

Such is the Christ-- the Christ of the cross, the Son of God.
