Posts Tagged ‘who is Jesus’

1In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
All means all. He made every cell in you physical body and He also created your spiritual being. He knows all about you, even whether or not you will accept Him. Even though He knows who will reject Him He does not stop loving everyone

In the first Book of the Bible, Genesis, He is the Seed of the woman: 15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

He is life giving. In Him was life; and the life was the light of the men. (John 1:4) The Holy Word of God existed before the beginning of time. He planned to become flesh. God knew that mankind could not attain righteousness through the law. He wanted us to see and experience this. He wanted to come to us in the flesh in order to see this world through human eyes, to experience life from the perspective of a human. It is only fitting and proper that we too should look at His creation through spiritual eyes. We need to see this world from Gods vantage point. When we look at others of Gods creation we need to see them as a beloved creation of the Almighty Creator of the universe.

We I look at people, I see them as God would. I see them though Love and I see them as beloved of God. Who am I too judge another? What gives me the right to hold unforgiveness in my heart when the Holy Word of God sacrificed Himself for us and offered forgiveness to every man? He didn’t pick and choose. He didn’t judge anyone. He paid the same price for me as He paid for each and every one of us.

. It is necessary to understand the exact sense in which God the Son is referred to by each of these terms.

The description of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ makes it clear that the term ‘Son of Man’ does not mean ‘one born of a man’; the meaning is something else. The fact that Jesus suffered death on the cross on behalf of the whole of humanity and that He is given the title ‘the last Adam’ [1.Cori: 15: 45] enables us to understand that the term ‘Son of Man’ means ‘One who represents the human race.’ In other words, as the redeemer of mankind, Jesus became the Son [Representative] of the human race or the ‘Son of Man.’

The term ‘Son of God’ also has to be understood in its proper sense; the birth of a son in our human context involves the physical relationship between a man and a woman; in this context a son has both a father and a mother. With regard to the ‘Son of God’ we see that He has only a Father. [Only as the Son of Man did Jesus have a mother— Virgin Mary.

Since as the Son of God Jesus Christ has only a Father, the meaning of the term ‘Son of God’ is not to be understood in the human context. The meaning of the expression ‘Son of Man’ indicates what ‘Son of God’ actually means; that meaning is ‘The One Who represents or reveals God.’ It was in this sense that the Jews understood the meaning of this term; they accused Jesus of blasphemy, because He said, “I am the Son of God” [John: 10:36]. They said to Him, “thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”[John: 10:33].

This proves that according to the Jews, ‘Son of God’ means God or One Who has the authority to stand in the place of God. This is made very clear in John 5: 18 where we read, “For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the Sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God.” Thus we see that the Jews’ understanding of the meaning of this term justifies our conclusion that it means ‘One Who reveals and represents God.’

There is reason for using the title ‘Son’ as the most suitable term for conveying the idea of the right to represent and reveal another person. In the days of monarchy, it was usually a son who would inherit his father’s throne. The son’s right to the father’s throne implied that he was the one authorized to stand in the place of his father. The idea of the son’s right to represent the father in his absence justifies the use of the term ‘Son of God’ as the most suitable term for conveying the idea that Jesus Christ came into the world revealing and representing God the Father Who is invisible to us.

We read in John. 10: 30 that Jesus said He and the Father are one and in verse 36 we find Jesus explaining that the Jews had rightly understood His words meaning that He is the Son of God. This means it was not about any unity of opinion between the Father and Him, but about their oneness in essence and about the Father being in Him that He referred to by saying that He and the Father are one.

In John 10: 17—18 we read that Jesus said, He was laying down His life, of Himself, and that He had the power to take it again. Jesus’ words, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” [John 2: 19] also expresses the same idea that He had the power to rise from the dead. In Acts 2: 24 we read that it was God Who raised Him up from the dead. The absence of contradiction between these statements is explained by the fact that whatever is done by the Father is considered to have been done by the Son, because they are one and the same in essence.

God did not create junks, neither did He create clones. What are we created for?

1. We Were Created To Increase
Genesis 1:26-28, NIV – (26) Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (28) God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

God created us to increase not just in physical sense as giving birth to children but He wants us to be productive in every area of our lives. At the job place He wants us to bring increase. He wants our family to be the best family anyone would ever want. God wants the best for us. When we settle for less we are not walking in line with His purpose

We were created To rule (or have dominion); to be fruitful in all we do; to increase; to fill the earth (to expand our territories); to subdue the earth (and cause it to come into alignment with God’s purposes).

As Christians, often we are set free in our spirit, but in our thinking we are still imprisoned to the lie of containment. We have become addicted to breakthrough. We start to live our lives from breakthrough to breakthrough to breakthrough, and we become addicted to the breakthroughs ? But most of us don’t need another break-through – we need a break-out
The break-out starts with breaking out of the lie that we were created to live in containment

1. Stop Believing The Lie
2 Samuel 5:17-20, NIV – (17) When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went down to the stronghold. (18) Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim;

(9) so David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” The LORD answered him, “Go [up], for I will surely hand the Philistines over to you.” (20) So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me.” So that place was called Baal Perazim.

The first thing the devil brings to us a lie. He wants us to walk without knowing the truth of what God says about us. For us to break the lie we have to know the truth. Jesus said He is the way, the Truth and the lie. To walk in truth we have to have a personal relationship with God.

2. We Have To Rise Up!
You will never break out, by just doing the same thing you are doing now. Doing the same thing you used to do, is what keeps you in containment. Change is the key to break out.
2 Samuel 5:19-24, NIV – (19) so David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” The LORD answered him, “Go, for I will surely hand the Philistines over to you.”

(22) Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; (23) so David inquired of the LORD, and he answered, “Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the balsam trees.

(24) As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.”
Every new victory requires a new revelation

3. Change Your Thinking – Renew Your Mind
Romans 12:2, NIV – (2) Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

The renewed mind things of the Kingdom. In the Kingdom of God there is peace, there is abundance. There is no lack. A renewed mind thinks of the things above and not of the things below. For us to become world changes our mind has to be renewed and this can only be done by reading and believing what the Bibles says about us.

4. Change Your Feeling – Speak Faith Not Feeling
2 Corinthians 4:13, NIV – (13) It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak. You will never change how you feel, until you change how you think, because every feeling starts with a thought ? But once you change your thinking, then you start declaring your new thoughts. You speak out of faith, not feeling, and then your feelings start to change

c) Change Your Actions – Choose To Do Things Differently
1 Peter 4:3,7 NIV – (3) For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do … (7) Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled … Once you think and feel differently, then you must practice self-discipline, and make daily choices to do things differently.

With this in mind we would be walking in the great treasure and pleasure of the God. Remember we were born to rule

Have a happy day.
