2which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures,3concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,4and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.

As the Nile softens and moistens the dry barren areas of land making them fruitful, so the gospel works in believers giving them power and making them fruitful and joyful. The great mystery of the gospel is the coming and the working of Jesus Christ. You are invited to believe not in a book, but in a historical, timeless character. Thousands of years ago God declared, through his prophets, that a man would be born of the Spirit of God and of a chaste virgin, and his name would be the only Son of God. The Torah is filled with prophecies about this event. Therefore, every true prophet confesses, in his message, that Christ is the Son of God. Who, then, would oppose the holy God, if he proclaimed himself, in his unity, to be the Holy Trinity, in order to change our unhealthy thoughts and raise us to a new deeper insight? Ever since Christ came, we have known that God is a merciful and loving Father, for the image of the merciful Son suggested to us a new notion or lesson about God; that He is Love.
And the Son of God became a true man, born from the seed of King David, the prophet and psalmist, who received a promise from God that one of his descendants would be the Son of the Most High (2 Sam 7:14). In this incarnation, the eternal Christ clothed himself with the weakness of our flesh and was tempted, in every way, just as we are.
Yet he was without sin, and death had no power over him, for the Holy Spirit, who had dwelt in him with all his fullness, overcame the body of sin. Jesus proved his power effectually and undeniably when he rose from the grave, triumphing and securing dominion over death, the enemy of men. Through this miraculous event God confirmed the sonship of Jesus, and ordained him to sit on his right hand as the true Lord, where he now reigns as Jesus said: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth”, and lives with the Father and the Holy Spirit; one God forever.”
The power of Christ sprang from Paul and rushed into the churches; and the power of Jesus works even today in those who confess that He who was born of a virgin is our living Lord himself. The statement: “Jesus Christ our Lord” is the summary of our faith since the beginning of Christianity. It contains all the meanings of the mystery of the Holy Trinity, the power of salvation, and hope.

We worship you, O Son of God, because you became incarnate by way of your love, and you overcame sin and death in your body. Please accept our mortal life in gratitude to you, and purify us with your Holy Spirit that we may become qualified for the kingdom of your love. We ask you to prevail over our thoughts, speech, and behavior that we may be faithful witnesses to you with all the bondservants of your faithfulness in our nation.
