The Secret of God (Job 15.8) - Who is the Son?
1. Piazzi Smyth's words - '… with rationalism continually extending on every side, the only vital question left in religion, the only question really, efficiently, sacred, is 'What think ye of Christ? Whose Son is he?' The question to which we must all of us, sooner or later, come at last." – contained in his 1880 book, The Great Pyramid - Its Secrets and Mysteries Revealed (originally published as Our Inheritance in the Great Pyramid) at page 458 - are more relevant today than they have ever been with great swathes of mankind (by far the majority) ignoring the question, hoping against hope that it is of no significance!
2. The story goes that Sir Walter Scott turned to The Book to answer this final question at his death.
3. Which book/s (of men) will you call for when your time comes – before or after death - to answer these 2 question:
3.1. Was God manifest in the flesh, or not? (1 Timothy 3.16)
3.2. Is the Old King James Bible 1611 Printing including the Apocrypha the word of God, or not?
4. The Old King James Bible 1611 Printing including the Apocrypha asks the same question in the Old Testament: Proverbs 30.4: Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?
5. Thankfully God answers this question in the Old Testament as well so that we have not been kept in the dark concerning this last, vital question: Isaiah 9.6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
6. The question is vital because:Matthew 22:11-14 11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14For many are called, but few are chosen.
