Concerning the complete and total Humanity of Christ Jesus as the “Son of Man”
Isa.53:2-3″ “For [the Servant of God] grew up before Him like a tender plant, and like a root out of dry ground; He has no form or comeliness [royal, kingly pomp], that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.” “Isa.61. “ The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; Matt.17:9, “And as they were going down the mountain, Jesus cautioned and commanded them, Do not mention to anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead. Luke 22:42, “ Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but [always] Yours be done.” Acts 2:22, “You men of Israel, listen to what I have to say: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man accredited and pointed out and shown forth and commended and attested to you by God by the mighty works and [the power of performing] wonders and signs which God worked through Him [right] in your midst, as you yourselves know.” Heb.2:17-18: “So it is evident that it was essential that He be made like His brethren in every respect, in order that He might become a merciful (sympathetic) and faithful High Priest in the things related to God, to make atonement and propitiation for the people’s sins. 18 For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able [immediately] [c]to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering].” “ For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Heb.2:16, “ “Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life]. “ Heb. 12:2. “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Rev.3:21, “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Rev.3:21.”
It is the humanity of Christ Jesus as the Son of Man that gives me the faith that through the Loving Grace of God and indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit and my LORD’S victory that I too can enjoy the victory of Jesus as the Son of Man. The power of the Holy Spirit came upon him at John’s baptism. That is inspiring and full of faith for me that the same can happen to us.
Jesus was totally the Son of Abraham, David and Man while on earth, Heb.10: 9-12. In the God dimension Jesus was always the Word of God and HIS victory was seen in God’s absolute foreknowledge from the beginning of time. But it was incomplete until walked out in our dimension of time as the Son of Man and then Jesus gained the position as the Son of God, the Word of God, made flesh. So our Creator God validated HIS right to Rule by totally limiting Jesus to becoming the Son of Man to prove to all that it could be done. As we make Jesus LORD and become the Children of God, we also need to, by God’s Grace, learn to walk out our lives in Righteousness and Sanctification.. Our Creator God is Creating a Holy Family of Righteousness to govern the universe as HIS “Rod of Iron.” Ken Smith, 5/30/21, Kealia, HI
