For several months the Holy Spirit has been leading me into a deeper understanding concerning  the humanity of Christ Jesus who was conceived by the Holy Spirit as per the prophets of God in the Old Testament.

In Isa. 9:6 we find the words: “For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given;  And the government shall be upon His shoulder, And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,  Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  So Isaiah saw the whole of what our Eternal Creator was about to do way before it began to happen and now is in progress.  We are told by many good witnesses of the birth of Jesus as a child being born and he grew up as a son of man with no special  divine privileges.  He was anointed with the Holy Spirit at age 30 for his earthly ministry and in HIS resurrection the government was placed upon HIM as in  Matt. 28:18-20.   And now we are seeing Him as the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  

Remember the sons of God in Job 1.   Adam also is listed as a son of God in Luke 3:38.   Jesus, is the only begotten Son.  Yes, Jesus was the only son of God of human birth.   But  seems there may be many  Sons  of God..  Jesus was born in Bethlehem as per Micah 5:2-5,  Isa. 9:6 & 61 as an anointed man from GOD , Isa. 61.   The Word of God made all things and in the resurrection due to the personal victory of Jesus over sin,  flesh and lucifer Jesus and the Word of God have became eternally one.   In The Father’s absolute foreknowledge Jesus always existed as so do you and I.  But there was also a birth of Jesus to bring that foreknowledge into predestination and physical reality.   Jesus is the very first to become God/man in the flesh and the 1st of many brethren as per The WORD of GOD’s design plan in Gen.1:27.   Of course in the resurrection Jesus and the Word of God merged but Jesus is still there as man in body, soul and spirit, 1 John 5:5-9.    Could Jesus have sinned like Adam,  yes.   Can God sin,  NO !!!    Jesus was all man while on earth and became GOD in HIS Resurrection through His choices and victories while on earth.   And  HE became sin for us who knew no sin that the righteousness of GOD might be extended to us because He wanted to.  Jesus  had  over 300 messianic prophesies to consider in his youth.  At the age of 12 Jesus was already aware of a Holy calling on his life.  Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives for a way out, but there was none so in His humility and obedience He endure the Cross for the Glory that was set before HIM in faith.   The same kind of faith that we need to join up being with Him when we graduate.  1 John 4:17 “ In this [union and fellowship with Him], love is completed and perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him]; because as He is, so are we in this world.  So we have a guaranteed Victory, if we want it.     Read Romans 8:12-39

Some of the  Church Fathers after the apostles,  made Jesus,  God at birth,  In one Council they excommunicated  hundreds of Bishops over the matter who did not agree..  Jesus as only the SON OF GOD  can make it difficult for us to identify with HIM.  It is difficult for us to see that we have available to us the same resources that Jesus did for victory over sin and to be able to have the faith become like HIM if He is GOD,  1 John 4:17.   Salvation then becomes like magic rather then following the example that Jesus as LORD set before us in holiness and victories.  We have the same Holy Spirit that HE did then and so then through God’s Grace we can learn to do what HE did in this world and become like HIM,  if we want to.  It is an open door,  Sanctification is a process.    Jesus came to us as the SON of man,  and in HIS resurrection victory  Jesus became the SON of GOD in power and is now  in the very image and likeness of GOD, Rev.1:13-18, & 2:26-29,  Jesus, son of man,  merged with the Word of God for eternity.  To believe that Jesus was God at birth would  make his whole ministry,  pure hypocrisy as it is easy for God to do anything.  Jesus was conceived and sent as a  pure 2nd Adam to show us that we could choose to become a Holy people by God Grace and Forgiveness ,  if  we wanted to.  That we could be forgiven in Jesus and walk out a life of holiness in the grace and power through the Holy Spirit with Jesus as LORD  if we would but have faith for God’s gift and grace to walk it out.  2 Peter 1:3-5  share with us what the faith in this promises can do for us.  “3 For His divine power has bestowed on us [absolutely] everything necessary for [a dynamic spiritual] life and godliness, through [a] true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has bestowed on us His precious and magnificent promises [of inexpressible value], so that by them you may escape from the immoral  freedom that  is  in  the world because of disreputable desire, and become sharers of the divine nature. 5 For this very reason, applying your diligence [to the divine promises, make every effort] in [exercising] your faith to, [b] develop moral excellence, and in moral excellence, knowledge (insight, understanding.)”

This new understanding as to the humanity and victory of Jesus in His humanity is really helping me a great deal to have a better faith dynamics in letting this world go, really not my home at all as it was also not His home.  Pray we all get together with Him in His new Kingdom of Righteousness.

Yours in HIS great Love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<><
