Advocate

If anyone does sin we have an ADVOCATE with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous One (1 John 2:1).

 

The Amen

These things say THE AMEN, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation (Revelations 3:14).

 

Apostle of Our Profession

Therefore holy brethren who share in the heavenly calling, consider Jesus the High Priest and APOSTLE OF OUR PROFESSION (Hebrews 3:1).

 

Author and Finisher of Our Faith

Let us look to Jesus, the AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH who for the joy set before him endured the cross, despising the shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2).

 

Author of Life

You killed the AUTHOR OF LIFE but God raised him from the dead.  To this we are witnesses (Acts 3:15).

 

The Beginning and the End

(The Alpha and the Omega)

(The First and the Last)

I am the ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, the FIRST AND THE LAST, the BEGINNING AND THE END (Revelations 22:13).

 

Blessed and Only Ruler

I charge you to keep this commandment unstained and blameless until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time. God, the BLESSED AND ONLY RULER, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords alone is immortal and lives in unapproachable light, Jesus, whom no one has seen or can see. To Him be honor and might forever. Amen (1 Timothy 6:14-16).

 

Bread of Life

Then Jesus said to them, “I am the BREAD OF LIFE” (John 6:35).

 

Captain of Salvation

In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should perfect through suffering the CAPTAIN OF THEIR SALVATION (Hebrews 2:10).

 

Chief Cornerstone

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God`s people and members of God’s household built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself being the CHIEF CORNERSTONE (Ephesians 2:19-21; Cf. 1 Peter 2:6).

 

Chief Shepherd

And when the CHIEF SHEPHERD appears, you will receive the unfading crown of Glory (1 Peter 5:4).

 

Christ

 

Andrew first found his brother Simon and said to him, “we have found the Messiah,” which means, the CHRIST (John 1:41).

 

 

Daystar

We have the prophetic word made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the  DAYSTAR rises in your hearts (2 Peter 1:19).

 

 

Deliverer

And so all Israel will be saved as it is written: “The DELIVERER will come from Zion. He will banish godlessness from Jacob” (Romans 11:26).

 

Emmanuel

The virgin will be with child and give birth to a son, and they will call him EMMANUEL, a name which means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

 

Eternal Life

This is the true God and ETERNAL LIFE (1 John 5:20).

 

Faithful and True

I saw the heavens opened and, I beheld a white horse, whose rider is called FAITHFUL AND TRUE (Revelations 19:11).

Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the FAITHFUL WITNESS (Revelations 1:4-5).

 

First-Born of the Dead

And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the FIRST-BORN OF THE DEAD, so that in all things he might be preeminent (Colossians1:18).

 

Good Shepherd

I am the GOOD SHEPHERD.  The good shepherd lays down his life for His sheep... I am the GOOD SHEPHERD; I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father, and I lay down my life for the sheep (John 10:11-14).

 

Great High Priest

Therefore, since we have a GREAT HIGH PRIEST having gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of god, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess (Hebrews 4:14).

 

Head of the Church

...Christ is the HEAD OF THE CHURCH, his body, and is Himself its Savior...And he is the head of the body, the Church (Col 1:18), (Ephesians 5:23).
