How Powerful Is Jesus? Unlimited? Omnipotent? Infinite?
The Bible refers to “God Almighty” as “the Almighty.” How about theSonofGod, Jesus Christ, as an example? What kind of power does He wield? Consider this: those who regard Him as a diluted version of God the Father should reconsider their position! The Scriptures will be examined to show Jesus’ “every authority” and “infinite power,” which He is glad to exercise on behalf of those who love and serve Him. 17-18 (Matthew 28:17-18) When they saw him, they fell down and worshipped him. Afterwards, Jesus appeared to them and declared, “I have been given all power in heaven and on earth.” Acts 10:36 (New King James Version) Jesus Christ is the one one who is Lord of all.
Jesus revealed an incredible revelation to His followers just before He ascended back to His present position at the right side of God the Father in heaven: “ALL power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” What authority do you have?
What level of authority did the Father bestow on the rising Savior?
When you see anall in the Bible, my pastor in Alaska used to say, “Let your all be all.” He meant it literally.
Jesus is all-powerful, and nothing on the face of the world or in heaven can prevent it from being subjected to His “all authority.” In case we weren’t clear enough on this point, the apostle Peter provided a second statement of this beautiful reality when he declared, “Jesus Christ— He is Lord of all,” which means, “Jesus Christ is Lord of all.” Peter stated something similar while he was preaching to the Jews in Jerusalem: “God has made this Jesus, whom you killed, both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36, NKJV).
- Let’s look at some examples from the Bible of how Christ’s Lord-of-all authority is shown in this world and in our personal lives.
- When Jesus was on the world 2,000 years ago, he treated “every illness and malady” that existed among the people (Matthew 4:23; 9:35).
- (Hebrews 13:8).
- He is the Lord of everything, and he has complete authority over sickness, disease, and infirmity, among other things.
- According to 1 Peter 2:24, Jesus not only carried our sins, but He also bore our diseases throughout His crucifixion and resurrection.
- Consider allowing this fact to sink deeply into your soul and spirit: Jesus once and for all bore the burden of all of our ailments, afflictions, and infirmities on His shoulders.
- Come in simple trust and fervent petition to the Savior who loves you, and he will hear your prayers.
Luke 4:18-19, verses 21 and 22, New King James Version It has been anointed by God to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal brokenhearted people, proclaim release to prisoners and sight restoration to the blind; He has sent Me to set at free those who are oppressed; He has sent Me to announce the Lord’s acceptable year.
- He read from the prophet Isaiah’s writings, which included the passage above.
- And we witness the Lord Jesus performing all of these things and more during His career, which is recounted in the Gospels.
- In this instance, we witness His identical ability to heal the brokenhearted.
- to liberate the oppressed, and so on.
- Do you require physical rehabilitation?
- Do you require the healing of a broken heart?
- Jesus was there “for me,” as the saying goes.
Jesus is Lord over all of this, and he is always available “for you.” Allow His unending power to act on your behalf by praying a simple prayer of faith and coming to Him in that manner.
“Come out of this guy, you unclean spirit!” Jesus had cried to him earlier in the day.
“My name is Legion,” he said, “since we are numerous.”.
He granted them permission, and the filthy spirits poured out and entered the pigs’ stomachs.
This legion of demons appeared out of nowhere, according to Matthew’s narrative (8:32), and they joined the herd of pigs when Jesus merely shouted “Go!” The message here is that Jesus our Savior is indeed “Lord of all,” even over the vile devils of hell, which is a powerful statement.
What should we take away from this?
He is capable of and will provide protection against the devil and his demonic demons.
We are reminded by the apostle Paul in Romans 8:37-38 that, because of Jesus, “we are more than conquerors” (37), including over demons (38).
And He is overjoyed to deliver you victory over the devil in your battle against him.
Jesus was asleep on a couch near the stern of the ship.
He sprang to his feet, rebuked the wind, and commanded the seas to “Quiet!
Is there a raging tempest raging through your life right now?
Perhaps you have lost your job or possibly your home?
In prayer, express your gratitude to Him.
Be still!” command into the dreadful circumstances you are currently facing.
The storm will die down and become absolutely peaceful, just as it did there.
Then he handed them up to the disciples, who in turn handed them over to the general public.
In addition to women and children, the number of men who ate amounted to approximately five thousand.
What do we take away from this?
Follow the Lord with all of your heart, or are you merely following him?
God, who created everything through the person of Jesus Christ.
All things were created through him and for him, including things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible.all things have been created through him and for him.
He is the Creator of all!
Does your body need a healing?
Do circumstances in your life need fixing?
And surely you will realize how easily He can remake the circumstances facing you.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is thesameyesterday andtodayand forever.
They think, “Well, Jesus did all that 2,000 years ago during His time on earth.
Our Lord-of-all Savior Jesus Christ is “the same today” as He was back then.
And from that exalted, omnipotent position, Jesus “is able tosave completelythose who come to God through him, because he always lives tointercede for them ” (Hebrews 7:25).
The Lord Jesus Christ, the merciful Savior who loves you, is in heaven at this very moment, continually offering you the fullness ofHis salvation(He’ll “savecompletely ”).
He’s entirely on your side.
As Hebrews 4:16 encourages and promises you, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace withconfidence, so that we may receive mercy and findgrace to help usin our time of need.” Jesus our Lord-of-all Savior will hear your prayer and bring His great power to bear in meeting your need.
While reading this, you may have been feeling God’s Holy Spirit speaking to your heart.
Or you’re just uncertain whether you have or haven’t done that.
The good news is that Jesus is there for you right now!
If so, please allow the late, respected evangelist Billy Graham to lead you in a prayer that will ensureyour place forever in God’s own familyas a son or daughter of God (2 Corinthians 6:18).

How powerful is Jesus?
When it comes to modern evangelicalism—a movement that claims to adhere to both scripture and tradition—one of the most difficult intellectual challenges is how to reconcile one’s commitment to a rationally constructed trinitarianism with the dominant apocalyptic narrative about Jesus that we find in the New Testament. Not that it can’t be done, but it’s really tough, in my opinion. Here’s an illustration: Following the resurrection, according to Matthew 28:18, Jesus declares that he has been granted all authority in heaven and on earth.
- Nevertheless, because Jesus is God, he must have had this power “from the beginning of time”.
- So what was the point of Jesus requesting authority that he already possessed?
- Piper’s response exemplifies the gyrations to which theologians are sometimes forced to resort in their efforts to bring theology and historical interpretation into harmony.
- God the Son already existing prior to the incarnation, but Jesus the God-man did not exist at that time.
- Nevertheless, the God-man, Jesus Christ, had not yet died for sinners, and the sentence of condemnation that had been hanging over his people had not yet been taken away from Satan’s grasp via the shedding of his Son’s blood.
- There are several issues to contend with.
- Throughout the Gospel of John, it is simply stated that the creative Word or Wisdom of God, which was involved in the act of creation, became flesh in the life and work of Jesus.
- The latent atonement idea is colorful and exaggerated in its claims.
As a result, two independent narratives have been forcibly inserted into one another: an orthodox christological narrative about Christ’s eternal existence as the second person of the trinity and a crudely expounded narrative about the Son who suffered as a result of Israel’s sins and was exalted to the right hand of the triune God.
While on earth, Jesus demonstrated control over disease, devils, and the natural order; after his resurrection, the resurrected Lord demonstrated authority over the monarchs of the earth, his adversaries, death, and the mission of the church, among other things.
First and foremost, the power that he possesses is always granted to him: as the Son of Man, he has been given the ability to cure the sick, drive out demons, forgive sins, govern the nations with a rod of iron, and so on.
Second, the power that Jesus has and wields is not total; rather, it is precisely constrained by the events of the apocalyptic story. This, I believe, can be proven by looking at a few significant scriptures from various parts of the New Testament, including Matthew, Paul, Hebrews, and Revelation.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me
When the resurrected Jesus appears to the eleven disciples on a hilltop in Galilee, they fall to their knees before him, albeit some of them are torn between loyalty and disloyalty. As he addresses them, he declares, “All authority (exousia) in heaven and on earth has been given to me,” and he commissions them to teach the nations in preparation for the conclusion of the period of Jewish history known as the Second Temple period (Matt. 28:16-20). Against this backdrop comes Daniel’s vision of the vindication of the “one like a son of man,” who is described as As well as royal power (exousia), he received the support of every country on the face of the globe, according to posterity, and he was surrounded by all honor.
- Daniel 7:14LXX (LXX) The power in question, according to Daniel, is not a cosmic but an apolitical one; it functions in the arena of history, where countries rise and fall, kingdoms come and go, and so on.
- 3:97; 5:7, 16, 29; 6:2-3LXX).
- It is during the time when the God of heaven intervenes to judge the antagonistic empires of ancient Greece that the fourth beast of Greece is killed, and control over the countries is taken away from the other animals (Dan.
- The son of man figure, who represents, in my opinion, virtuous Jews who remained true to the covenant while being persecuted by Antiochus Epiphanes, is subsequently granted the authority to govern over the nations of the universe (Dan.
He goes on to say that God will give the authority and kingdom, as well as the magnitude of all kingdoms, which are under heaven, to the holy people of the Most High, who will reign over an everlasting kingdom, and all authorities will submit to him and follow his commands until the conclusion of time.
7:27LXX) In this section, we will look at the political story that justifies Jesus’ claim.
Matt. 16:24-28; Mk. 8:34-9:1; Lk. 9:23-27). As YHWH’s king over all authorities until the completion of the word, or as Jesus says, until the end of the age, he has been given the delegated authority to govern asYHWH’s king.
He put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things
It is Paul’s prayer that the saints in Ephesus will come to understand the “power” that was at work in the resurrection of Jesus, when God raised Jesus from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places far above all rule and authority and power and lordship and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come; and “he put all things under his feet” and gave him as head above all things for the church, which is his body, (See my translation of Ephesians 1:20-23.) It amounts to a repetition of Jesus’ own remarks to the high priest during his trial: “The leaders of Israel will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven” (Matthew 24:36).
- The fact that Jesus rose from the dead makes him both the son of man figure who comes with the clouds of heaven to receive an everlasting royal authority (Dan.
- First and foremost, Paul does not claim that the elevated Jesus has complete control over (epi) all things in this passage.
- According to Colossians 2:10, the phrase “head of every rule and authority” refers to the same thing.
- The power entrusted to Jesus as the firstborn from the dead during the eschatological transition is principally intended to serve the aim of preserving the witness of the churches during the transition.
- According to the story of Psalm 110, Jesus must reign at the right side of God until all of his adversaries have been defeated and destroyed, including the death of the last adversary.
The empire to come has been subjected to him
It is the same essential assertion that is stated by the writer to the Hebrews, but in much greater detail. God spoke with (the themismanaged vineyardof) Israel via his Son, whom he designated as heir to the entire enterprise. In the aftermath of his redeeming death on the cross for Israel, Jesus “sat down it the right hand of the Majesty on high,” where he will reign until all of Israel’s adversaries are humbled beneath his feet (Heb. 1:2-3, 13; 2:5-8). This is the point in time when the Son was “born” in the capacity as YHWH’s monarch (cf.
- 2:7; Acts 13:33; Heb.
- His status has also been elevated above heavenly powers: no angel has ever heard God say, “You are my Son,” or that God “has anointed you.
- 1:5, 9, 13).
- The argument from the Psalms, on the other hand, is the same.
Jesus does not subdue the future “imperial” (oikoumene) directly or by his own power; rather, it is God who will reduce the empire to Jesus’ authority (Heb. 2:5).
The ruler of kings on earth
The book of Revelation unquestionably portrays the political power of the exalted Jesus in a positive light. As the faithful witness to Israel, he was resurrected from the dead in advance of the resurrection of the righteous on the day of God’s wrath, and he has risen to become “the ruler of kingdoms on earth,” according to the Bible (Rev. 1:5). As such, he is specifically the one who is like a son of man, who arrives with the clouds of heaven, who has eternal reign, glory, and dominion, and who is the only one who can destroy the world (Rev.
- In his capacity as YHWH’s anointed king—and as the Lamb authorized to open the scroll of judgment—he will judge and reign over the nations “with a rod of iron” (Rev.
- 2:27; Ps.
I would go so far as to say that the apocalyptic narrative is entirely devoted to the question of Jesus’ authority as the Son of God: the righteous and obedient Son of Man suffers, is killed, but is raised by God from the dead, seated at his right hand, and given authority as a heavenly king to judge and rule over both Israel and the nations in the age to come.
The identity of the exalted Christ is determined not only by his relationship to the Father, but also by his relationship to those who will suffer in him, for the sake of his future rule over the nations of the Greek-Roman world, and by his relationship to those who will suffer in him for the sake of his future rule over the nations of the Greek-Roman world The New Testament, I believe, understands this epochal political action of the living God as the embodied or incarnated work of the creative Word or Wisdom of God, and that redescriptive shift steers us, not surprisingly, in the direction of the later trinitarian formulae, which are not unreasonable.
However, this development cannot be explained biblically, but only historically, which is good because history is what the Bible is all about in the first place!
Jesus is Powerful
You may not have given it much thought, but have you ever imagined what Jesus might look like if he walked into this room? Lifeway has over 50 paintings of Bible scenes on the conference level, many of which are reproductions of original artwork that many of us remember from our childhood Sunday school books. None of them exemplify what the Bible says about Jesus, according to me. Movies. I don’t believe God provided us with enough information to determine what Jesus looked like physically since it wasn’t the most essential thing.
Because these are the things he desired for us to inherit, copy, and grow in our own lives.
It was written by Charles Edward Jefferson in 1908, more than a century ago, and is titled The Character of Jesus (The Character of Jesus).
We know exactly what we need to know from them, which is that Jesus’ persona embodied power and might.
Look at how strong and powerful people reacted to Jesus
John the Baptist was a powerful man, and no one had ever emerged in Judah who was more powerful. When Jesus comes forward to be baptized, something extraordinary occurs. John had challenged people to repentance, and he had stood up to the greatest men of his day without flinching or backing down. “I am unable to baptize you,” John admits after stumbling and falling back. Jesus was a force to be reckoned with! The Gospel of Matthew 3:13-17 explains that At another time, Jesus is walking down the edge of the Sea of Galilee when he comes across two fishermen who are fishing.
- Jesus possessed great strength.
- When I think of Russell Crowe’s performance as General Maximus Decimus Meridius in the film Gladiator, I think of him as a Roman general.
- Jesus, being the Son of God, possesses the divine power (John 5:17-19; 10:28-30) Jesus’ power comes from the Father, even though he is a man (Acts 10:38) Jesus is referred to be the Supreme Being (Ephesians 1:20, 21; 1 Peter 3:22) Jesus has unlimited power (Matthew 28:18).
Jesus has the ability to perform miracles (Matthew 8:27; Luke 5:17) Others are given the ability to do miracles because of Jesus (Matthew 10:1; Mark 16:17, 18; Luke 10:17) Jesus possesses the authority to pardon sins (Matthew 9:6; Acts 5:31) Jesus possesses the authority to provide eternal life (John 17:2) Jesus possesses the ability to revive the dead (John 5:28, 29) In this section, I want you to take a quick glance at one of the Bible’s most wonderful chapters, 1 Corinthians 13.
I wish you and I had been as taken aback by this section as I was, but it has become so routine.
It was “Jesus’s understanding” that the Father had placed everything in His hands, that He had come from God, and that He would be returning to God.
So how does Jesus use his power?
“So He rose from his seat at supper, threw his robe aside, seized a towel, and wrapped it about himself. Following that, He poured water into a basin and began washing His disciples’ feet, drying them with the cloth that was wrapped around His waist.” John 13:3-5 (KJV) Andy Stanley delivered a speech on this text at a conference last year, which I attended. He stated that when Jesus recognized that He was the most powerful person in the room, He decided to utilize His power and authority for the good of the disciples and for our welfare.
Jesus removes his robe, which served as a sign of power.
Jesus relinquishes all of his authority (his robe serves as a metaphor) and takes on the role of a lowly servant.
Look for ways to use your influence to benefit the other individuals in the room.
The tale of George Washington is that he relinquished his authority. Regardless of whether he chooses to be King, he would be the most powerful person on the planet. He is the ultimate example of a leader who can be trusted with authority because he chose to relinquish it.
Reminder at what it is …
This section is based from T.W. Hunt’s essay The Mind of Christ, which discusses the virtue, the opposition of the virtue, and the perversion of the virtue. Inherent in power are the virtues of constancy and immovability; surety and invincibility; lasting and abiding; resoluteness and fidelity; and unwavering, unwavering, uncompromising. Consider where we derive our power, strength, and authority from. Ressources (cash and other financial assets), business (including equipment and property), and controlling interest Strength on the physical level Intellect, intelligence, and skill are all terms that describe wisdom and knowledge.
- As Christians, we have access to that power.
- Power’s polar opposite is a state of being that is uncertain, unstable, fickle, and indecisive.
- God, on the other hand, is powerful; God is a fighter.
- 138-144) Yahweh is the name of the Lord, and He is a warrior.
Perversions of Power:
Inflexible, stiff, narrow-minded, stubborn, unyielding, and stubbornly unyielding. When we corrupt or abuse the power and authority he has given us, he finds it unattractive and disgusting. Consider the instances in which you’ve witnessed men and women abuse their God-given authority. When it comes to your family, a board meeting, or a classroom, you can’t be stubborn and hard-headed. It is not power, that is not strength; that is a perversion of power, and it is abhorrent to the Lord Jesus Christ.
- This is beautifully expressed, since I am in agreement.
- 15 Because I have set an example for you, you should follow my lead and do the same for others as I have done for you.
- 13:12-17 (John 13:12-17) (HCSB) Your leadership will be remembered for making the decision that I am not greater than my Master and Savior.
- We should follow in their footsteps.
- Is it a church, an organization, or a classroom?
- What exactly did Jesus do?
- When it occurs to you that you have power, seek for opportunities to use that power for the benefit of the other individuals in the meeting.
For some of you, money is the source of your power.
Not what you write or possess or leave to your children or what you teach, but what you do with your power will be your lasting legacy, not anything else you do with your life.
When Chris Ediger started working at Lifeway, I discovered right away that he was more knowledgeable about internet technology than anybody else on our staff.
Rather of bragging about my seniority and refusing to learn from him, I would look at a graphic he had created and say, “Show me how to make that.” It worked both ways.
Our number one priority as men is to increase ourselves.
It is the same powerful force that resurrected Christ from the dead and elevated him to the place of honor at God’s right side in heaven, far, far beyond any other monarch, ruler, dictator, or leader.
God has placed everything under his feet and elevated him to the position of supreme head of the Church.” 1 Thessalonians 1:19-23 (Living Bible) What type of authority has God bestowed upon you? Are you putting to good use the authority He has given you for His glory?
Was Jesus Weak?
Flexibility is lacking; rigidity is present; narrow-mindedness is present; persistence is present; hard-headedness is present; When we corrupt or abuse the power and authority he has given us, he finds it unattractive and dislikes us. Consider the instances in which you’ve witnessed men and women abuse their God-given authority and authority. Your family, the board of directors, or even the class room may all benefit from having someone who is stubborn and hard-headed. It is not power, that is not strength; that is a perversion of power, and it is abhorrent to the Lord Jesus Christ!
- This is wonderfully put, since I am in agreement with it completely.
- 15 Because I have set an example for you, you should follow my lead and do the same for others as I have done.
- 17 In knowing these things, you will be fortunate if you follow through with them.
- To the benefit of the other (disciples) in the room, he used His authority to their advantage.
- As the most influential person in your department, what do you do when you’re in a pickle?
- He scrubbed the soles of their feet and dried them.
Without doing so, you are stating that you are more important than your master-Jesus.
Some of you believe that your charm, or your expertise, or your intelligence, or your tongue, is your source of power.
Not what you write or possess or leave to your children or what you teach, but what you do with your power, will be your lasting contribution to the world.
The first day Chris Ediger started working at Lifeway, it was clear to me that he was far more knowledgeable about internet technology than the rest of the crew.
Rather of bragging about my superiority and refusing to learn from him, I would look at a graphic he had created and say, “Show me how to make that.” It worked both ways.
Our number one priority as men is to reproduce ourselves.
It is the same powerful force that resurrected Christ from the dead and placed him in the position of honor at God’s right side in heaven, far, far beyond any other monarch or ruler, dictator, or leader.
He is the ultimate Head of the Church, since God has placed everything beneath his feet. Chapters 1:19-23 of Ephesians (Living Bible) Who knows what type of authority God has bestowed upon you. Are you putting to good use the authority He has given you?
Jacob was a cheaterPeter had a temperDavid had an affairNoah got drunkJonah ran from GodPaul was a murdererGideon was insecureMiriam was a gossiperMartha was a worrierThomas was a doubterSara was impatientElijah was moodyMoses stutteredZaccheus was shortAbraham was oldLazarus was dead
These are all people who had very genuine flaws, yet it is precisely in their flaws that God demonstrates His strength to the rest of the world. When it comes to grace, 2 Corinthians 12:9 states, “My grace is sufficient for you, because my power is made perfect in weakness.” In our weakness, we must cry out to God and confess that we are unable to handle the situation on our own. “I’m in need of your assistance.” It is in those moments that He demonstrates His strength, by meeting us where we are and guiding us through the difficult problems we face.
wasjesusweak As we progress through this week, I’d want to ask you a question: from whence do you get your strength?
I encourage you to bring those concerns to God in prayer this week, knowing that He is with you and that He wishes to provide you with His strength so that you might follow Him and the great mission to which He has called you.

|“||If your heart is wavering, do not shoot; Because then a new path will be open for you.||”|
|—Jesus toJohnny Joestar|
Jesus(Iesu)is a pivotal character in the video game Steel Ball Run. This person, who appears in close proximity to the Saint’s corpse, is identified once and highly inferred to symbolize the biblical and much-veneratedSon of GodWinChristianityW,Jesus Christ, despite the fact that it has never been proven as such.
Throughout the chapter that recounts his life, Jesus is shown as having long, black hair, his body covered in wounds, and wearing a thick cloak. His face is never visible since it is hidden by the shade of his hair or the cloak he wears. More recently, he has been seen mostly from behind or with a big portion of his face obscured by darkness. He has long, black hair that he wears in several styles, including clean shaven, with a mustache, and with a light beard. His torso is covered with scars, and his hands bear the marks of the Holy Wounds.
As in the original, Jesus in Steel Ball Runis serious and straightforward, instilling awe in the hearts of those who encounter him as a messianic figure. HisCorpseintegrating is most easily accomplished withFunny ValentineandLucy Steel; in his living role, he prefers Blackmore and Johnny Joestar the most, to whom he provides specific counsel on one particular occasion.
The following is the main article: Ticket to Ride The Stand of Lucy Steel’s Ticket to Ride might be interpreted as the Stand of Jesus’ full corpse or as the Stand of Jesus’ alive self. By taking this Stand, you can reroute misfortune, sending it far away to rest somewhere else and neutralize, or perhaps on other individuals throughout the world. The Parts of Jesus’ Corpse periodically merge with the equivalent bodily parts of humans who come into contact with them, resulting in the development of unique (Stand) powers in some of those who have come into contact with them.
In JoJolion, the nature of the Corpse’s power is defined as having the ability “to remove” things from the environment (e.g. healing by removing disease). Jesus may appear and/or talk to someone on a rare occasion while still a live person.
In the manga, following Jesus’ resurrection, he expresses his gratitude to Joseph of Arimathea for taking care of his body and declares that he will journey to the east. When Joseph inquires about a possible future encounter, Jesus draws a map on the sand that shows Joseph nine different sites. After that, Jesus journeys eastward across the continent, encountering new languages and civilizations along the way, until he reaches the ocean. His journey begins when he constructs a ship with the assistance of the villagers and sets sail for a new location, where he lives and grows older until he eventually dies.
After his death, a great earthquake tears the ground apart and a great storm rages, dividing his corpse into nine pieces, which are moved further eastward by the movement of the wind, sand, and animals, and eventually to nine locations on Joseph of Arimathea’s map, which spans North America, shortly after his death.
Steel Ball Run
The body of Jesus is mistaken for that of another saint at first glance. Several characters in theSBRace are motivated to acquire his Corpse Parts for a variety of profoundly personal reasons that vary from character to character. A relationship between the Corpse and the Devil’s Palm is described in the first few chapters, with this area granting the ability to stand to anyone who comes into contact with it. It is later revealed that the Devil’s Palm was created when Jesus finally died and a natural disaster changed the landscape.
As a result of this discovery, he drops his guard, allowing Lucy Steel to fatally shoot him.
The stolen Parts are discovered by Lucy later on while escaping from Valentine, and she miraculously falls pregnant despite the fact that she is a virgin, eventually discovering the Corpse’s head in her womb and forming a Stand.

With the difficulties we are now experiencing as a community, as a country, and as a society, we may come to rely on ephemeral things that might provide temporary relief or comfort; but, these things will never be able to totally fulfill us in the manner that Jesus can.

- The line “I should come to Him” from the first three verses might have been repeated throughout the song, which would have helped to keep the repetitious pattern, but it would not have made sense because we are unable to do so for ourselves.
- “There is no other way to the Father but through Me.” Because of the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf, we owe him a debt of gratitude.
- In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus tells the tax collector Zacchaeus, “Today salvation has arrived to this house.for the Son of Man came into the world to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19).
- In paradise, there will be more delight for a single sinner who repents than there will be for ninety-nine good people who do not need to repent.” Finally, a simple chorus runs throughout the song, reminding us of God’s unwavering commitment to us at all times.
