CHRIST: THE MAN, THE GOD AND THE FUTURE OF MAN IN GOD.
It’s my sincere desire that this will move from a writing to become a life that will help our walk and shape us as believers.
We must accept that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, He was man here on earth and at the same time God,
scriptures told us that
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth HIS SON, MADE OF A WOMAN, made under the law,
John 1:14 And THE WORD was MADE FLESH, and DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld his glory, the glory AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his ONLY begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
We saw that Jesus was born of the flesh or born by a woman just as we are born and that He has been from the beginning with God. Again we saw that He was the only begotten son. Well, I do not mind to tell you from here that after He was begotten we became begotten too, because He was first called only begotten but now first begotten….
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the FIRST BEGOTTEN of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is BEGOTTEN OF GOD keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath BEGOTTEN US AGAIN unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
You see it!
Confirming our begotten also, scriptures said we’re joint heir with Christ, because we’re children of God.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the CHILDREN OF GOD:
Romans 8:17 And IF CHILDREN, then HEIRS; HEIRS OF GOD, and JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Note the word joint heirs WITH Christ and not joint heirs in Christ.
There are things we are in Christ, with Him, by Him…
What we are in Him and with Him, gives our life an identity. A separation of God’s people. It defines our lives ad shape our walk. We must understand that Jesus been gotten was to got us begotten and also that we may begat many people into the Kingdom. We saw Paul saying he begot some people…
1 Corinthians 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for IN CHRIST JESUS I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU through the gospel.
Philemon 1:10 I beseech thee for my son ONESIMUS, whom I have BEGOTTEN in my bonds:
So you see, it’s clear isn’t it?
Jesus was begotten so that we might be begotten and that we might begot others. That’s our life!
No wonder Jesus was praying that we might be one with the Father even as He is.
John 17:21 That THEY ALL may be ONE; as thou, Father, art in ME, and I in thee, that THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
The intentions of Jesus was clear to bring us into oneness with the Godhead. And this can be done through His body.
Colossians 2:9 For IN HIM(CHRIST) dwelleth all the FULNESS of the Godhead BODILY.
Christ house the Godhead. This is the body of His flesh and this is what we partake of at the communion table. So, God see the Church through Jesus Christ and He brings man into God where we will be fully be like God.
I remember a vision I saw in school years ago. I saw us becoming the fourth man in the Godhead, that’s where they are calling us into. When we have entered into Christ we have entered into the fullness of the Godhead. To be one with the Godhead, to be complete in that Body of Christ. Having the exact nature and life of God no difference. To defeat death we will have to come into that Body, we have to be like the Son. Even like the Godhead. So what Christ has become we’re expected to see and come into and walk in it.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
These things will come to pass, in fact before God it has. For the operation of this, all is in the Son. The Son is the means to get the world to make a Church(lost then saint, alienated but now His). And when He put the Church into His body, They have gained man into Them.
Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Colossians 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him ALL THINGS CONSIST.
God’s intention therefore is to bring us into glory. The glory is in Himself.
Hebrews 2:10 For it became HIM, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing MANY SONS UNTO GLORY, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Christ was a man, He was also God, and He’s the future of man in God, that will enter into the fullness of God as He is.
Recognising Christ life is recognising our own life and destiny.
When we see the examples we need, if well followed we will always produce what the example produced.
Therefore, Christ is praying for the Church and waiting for man to come into all that He is, for Christ is the end of what man must become in God. Our beginning is in God and our ending is in God. No wonder He authored our faith to bring us to the future of it or the end of our faith.
