"We have found the Messiah: Jesus Christ, who brings us truth and grace." John 1:41, 17b
In Joyful Anticipation of the Messiah...
"In the Book of Daniel we are told that this kingdom is given to the Son of Man and to the saints (Daniel 7:14,18,22,27). The Son of Man is a Messianic title for God's anointed King. The New Testament word for "Messiah" is "Christ" which literally means the "Anointed One" or the "Anointed King". God sent us his Son not to establish an earthly kingdom but to bring us into His heavenly kingdom – a kingdom ruled by truth, justice, peace, and holiness. The kingdom of God is the central theme of Jesus' mission. It's the core of His gospel message." ~ www.DailyScripture.net
Christ (ancient Greek: Christós, meaning 'anointed') is a translation of the Hebrew, the Messiah, and is used as a title for Jesus in the New Testament.
The followers of Jesus became known as Christians (as in Acts 11:26) because they believed Jesus to be the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible. Christians designate him Jesus Christ, meaning Jesus the Christos. Christ was originally a title, but later became part of the name "Jesus Christ", though it is still also used as a title, in the reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning "The Messiah Jesus".
Jesus is not accepted by the majority of Jews as their Messiah. The Jewish people still await the Messiah's first coming, while Christians await his second coming, when they believe he will fulfill those parts of Messianic prophecy left unfulfilled in the first century AD.
"Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end of all history, and the Lord of all creation. Give me Joyful hope and confidence that I will see you face to face when you return in glory ." ~ www.DailyScripture.net
