Msg #1824 The Word Was Made Flesh

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

Christ humbled himself, took on the form of a servant, made himself of no reputation, was made in the likeness of men, was made a little lower than the angles. At one time prior to “the Word was made flesh,” and also “before the world was,” Christ had all the glory of the Father, and while robed in flesh, Jesus prayed to the Father that he would be restored to that glory (John17:5). Also consider what Jesus said, “The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do” (John5:19), and again, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also” (John14:12). These powerful revelations are brought into harmony with the understanding that to be Jesus, Christ set aside his omnipresence, his omnipotence, and his omniscience, and for thirty-three years he operated in the likeness of men, as you and I do. This truth escapes the orthodox theologian; they set these Scriptures aside and consternate about how Jesus got a soul and how a union of two natures is even possible. While on this point consider that we are not “Jesus-ians;” we are “Christ-ians.” One cannot be saved by believing on Jesus, one must believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (John20:31). God is very careful where he uses the names Lord, Jesus and Christ and we should be. Modernist translators striving to copyright God's words are caviler, even callous, about their use; so a serious Bible student should get and use only an uncopyright Authorized Bible. The name Jesus references what he did while in the flesh, the name Christ references his eternal Godhead as Messiah the Anointed One. Even in their compound use God is very careful about their order. It is awesome what Christ did.
