40 DAYS OF DEVOTION
WHO IS HE?
He is the Son of Man – “One like a Son of Man was coming. He came up before the Ancient of Days. To Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom. The Son of Man came to save those who are lost. The Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head. The Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath. The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. The Son of Man is to be handed over to crucifixion. The Son of man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. They will see the Son of Man coming. The Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds. The Son of Man will send forth His angels. The Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne” (Dan 7:13-14, Mt 18:11, Mt 8:20, 9:6, 12:8, Mt 13:37, 20:28, 26:2, Mt 12:40, 24:37, 24:30, 13:41, Mt 19:28).
WHO ARE WE?
We Identify with the Son of Man – “Who do the people say the Son of Man is? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels. Do you believe in the Son of Man? Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. Keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man. Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God. In the middle of the lampstands, I saw one like a Son of Man. Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a Son of Man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand” (Mt 16:13, Mk 8:38, Jn 9:35, 6:27, Lk 21:36, Acts 7:56, Rev 1:13, 14:14).
