I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Read all of Isaiah 43
Does this sound familiar, “beside me there is no savior…”?
God is a jealous God and righteously so (not that He needs me to state that). He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die, lay in the tomb for 3 days, and the breath of God breathed life into Jesus on day three. He arose in His resurrected body alive and vibrant. He was seen by 500 witnesses ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-11). Imagine the excitement as the news spread throughout the land that the Master had risen! Christ is soon to return as the Messiah. Our King shall rule and reign for 1,000 years on earth. My heart jumps with joy to think of the day. My hope in this temporary world is my hope in Christ!
