Behold The Lamb Of God

Greetings in the name of Jesus! This is Rob Haymes. This is 15 Minutes with Jesus. Wherever two or three are gathered together in My name, Jesus said, there am I in the midst of them. To those of you who love Him in truth: mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied.

Interpretation of a message in tongues:

I am God Almighty! Those of you who are listening to My servant Rob this day, hearken as he speaks to you about My Son, My Beloved Son Jesus. Listen carefully to him, for I have given him these words. I am God Almighty! Those of you who would know Me, you must know My Son; you must come to My Son; you must be born again; you must trust in Him with all your heart, and you will know Me, says the Lord God Almighty.

Thank you Father, Amen! Today’s program is called, Behold The Lamb Of God. Let’s turn to John 1:1-36,  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, This was He of whom I said, He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me. And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you? He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? He said, I am not. Are you the Prophet? And he answered, No. Then they said to him, Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself? He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as the prophet Isaiah said. Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees. And they asked him, saying, Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet? John answered them, saying, I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me. I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water. And John bore witness, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from Heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God. Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God! Mark 1:9-11, It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. Then a voice came from Heaven, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 

Jesus is the Son of God. The angel Gabriel told Mary, when he came to her and told her that she was going to have a Son; he told her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you, therefore that Holy Thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God.  Jesus became the Son of God when the Word was made flesh. Jesus is not condemning you; He did not come to condemn, but to save you from your sins: the very things that destroy you. Heb 4:14-16, Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Jesus sympathizes with our weaknesses. He was tempted in every way as we are, yet He never sinned. Jesus, therefore, is without spot and blameless: the spotless Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. It is His Blood: the Blood of the spotless Lamb, that atones for the sins of the whole world. Whosoever will come to Him; take His yoke upon him, and learn of Him, will find rest for their souls. 

1 John 1:1-10, That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life—the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. In another place the Apostle John says, In Him is life; he that has the Son has eternal life; he that does not have the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides upon him. If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  Jesus is the light of the world.

In John 6:48, Jesus said, I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from Heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.  I am the living bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, How can this Man give us His flesh to eat? Then Jesus said to them, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from Heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.  At the Last Supper, when Jesus kept the feast of Passover with His disciples, He took bread and gave thanks and broke it and said, Take, eat, this is my body which is broken for you. This do in remembrance of Me. Also He took the cup of wine, and as they all drank from it He said, this cup is the New Covenant in My Blood which is shed for you. His body was broken for you; His Blood was shed for you, that you might be forgiven; that you might be cleansed; that you might be redeemed from all the powers of darkness, and the power of sin in your life; to be washed; to be cleansed through faith in His sacrifice for you. He died for our sins. He willingly paid that price for the sins of the whole world, and He was raised again on the third day, that you and I might be justified from all sin, and that we might inherit eternal life. Greater love has no man than this, Jesus said, than a man lay down His life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatsoever I command you. After we come to Him, believe on Him and confess our sins to Him, then we must continue in Him, continue in His Word, and follow on to know Him. The Apostle Paul said that he counted all his achievements in life as rubbish, that he might know Jesus, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, that he might attain to the resurrection from the dead: the hope of eternal life. As you follow on with Jesus, He will lead you in righteous paths to deal with your life, because He loves you, to deliver you and teach you His good way. He will rebuke you and chasten you when you need it, because He loves you, and He wants to correct you and keep you on the narrow way to life. He said in Rev 3:19, As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 

Jesus is zealous for His Father’s House. John 2:13-16, Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. And He said to those who sold doves, Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise! Then His disciples remembered that it was written, Zeal for your House has eaten Me up. There are many houses of merchandise these days, but Jesus is not there; there are many Jesuses, but there is One who is true, and He hates sin. He loves you, and He hates sin, because it destroys you. Not only does He hate sin, but He gave His life to deliver you from it completely, and to bring you into eternal life with Him and His Father in His glorious Kingdom. The Father loves you; Jesus loves you, but you must come to Him, and take His yoke upon you and labor with Him in His Kingdom, and get to know Him and serve Him. 

Rev 1:4-8, John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
