MATTHEW 16 – THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD

” When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say The Son Of Man Is?”
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I Am?” Simon Peter answered, “You Are The Messiah, The Son Of The Living God.”” Matthew 16:13-16

In Matthew 16, The Lord Jesus asks a question to His disciples in order to know what people are saying about Him. According to the disciples’ answer, some think that He Is John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. These people are mistaken about The Identity Of The Lord Jesus because they have not received a Revelation on His Person. On the other hand, Simon Peter, one of the disciples Of The Lord Jesus acknowledged that He Is The Messiah, The Son Of The Living God because this was revealed to Him by God.

“Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in Heaven.” Matthew 16:17

Similarly, many people today have not received The Revelation on The Person Of Christ Jesus, so they are mistaken about His Identity. Some think that He Is a prophet, others do not even consider Him and think that they can have access to God without His Mediation. They have a false conception Of The Lord Jesus. It is therefore the mission of us who have received a Revelation on His Person to tell the whole world that He Is The Messiah, The Son Of The Living God.
