My God My God Why Have Forsaken Me

Matthew 27;46. To About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Elí, Elí, lemá[ sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”/

In Mark 15:34 And at three Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

In Matthew 27:45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land.

In Mark 15:33 When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.

When Jesus was hanging on the cross when it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. This darkness was a supernatural event since darkness came over the whole land. It was foretold by the prophet in the Old Testament For example, in Isaiah 5:30,13;10 it states,When one looks at the land, there will be darkness and distress; light will be obscured by clouds in Amos 8:9,“I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.Why did God allow darkness to occur. In the Bible darkness means judgement from and God. For example when darkness fell over the Eghypt for 3 days just before the death of oldest son throughout the land. Nonetheless, darkness at the crucifixion was God judgment on sin. Where all of mankind sin fell upon Jesus, and God Father view Jesus as the worst sinner in world. John Baptist started, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” John 1:29 Jesus was the paschal lamb.

In Mark 15:34 Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

Oxford Bible Church wrote,”What could be so much more terrible that made him scream? In a moment your sins, my sins and the sins of the whole world were put on him and God the Father and God the Holy-Spirit turned their backs on him. He had lived a perfect holy life, hating sin-but now the sin of the world was placed on him. Jesus took our place and bore our sins. He suffered the punishment that we deserved and which justice demanded. He died as a Sin-Offering and paid the penalty for our sin. The wrath and judgement of God that we deserved now fell upon him. (Isa 53:6). In the 3 hours of DARKNESS he suffered the equivalent of eternal hell. He had lived in the fellowship and Presence of God his whole life, even from eternity, but now for the first time he was in darkness, separated from God’s presence and blessing (spiritual death) 
Now he drank fully the cup of God’s Wrath upon sin. (John 18:11) This is the horror that caused him to scream the words: 
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Ps 22:1)”

Why did it seem like God turned His back on Jesus? 
Because: Thou are HOLY  Since God is holy He can have nothing to do with sin. At that moment: He who knew no sin was made SIN for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2Cor 5:21). 
So now the full force of God’s righteous and holy anger fell on Jesus. We cannot imagine the horror he had to suffer on the account of our sin.

These words were spoken from the cross to God to reveal that flowing out from the cross GODWARD, was a propitiation, satisfying God’s Justice and appeasing His anger upon sin Jesus bore the sin of the whole world so that forgiveness and salvation is available to all through Christ.

In Psalm 22;1 is the fulfillment of Matthew 27;46 and Mark 15:34 in both its agony and its victory. Jesus knew great pain and suffering (both physical and emotional) in His life, but had never known separation from His Father; now He does. There was a significant sense in which Jesus rightly felt forsaken by God the Father at this moment. Why? Because God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him 2 Corinthians 5:21.

In Mark 15:34 And at three, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

Note at three o’clock or the 9th hour Jesus cried out my God My God have for shaken. Why at 3 o’clock in Exodus 12:6 You are to keep male lamb until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter the animals at twilight.

When God instituted the Passover, He commanded that the paschal lamb should be slain on the 14th day (Passover) “at evening” that is, during the time after the sun passed its zenith (~3 PM), and extending until sunset.Also in must only sacrifice the Passover animal at the place where Yahweh your God chooses to have His name dwell. Do this in the evening as the sun sets at the same time of day you departed from Egypt.

Deuteronomy 16:6 must only sacrifice the Passover animal at the place where Yahweh your God chooses to have His name dwell. Do this in the evening as the sun sets at the same time of day you departed from Egypt. Where the family would put bloodon door post so angel of death would Passover them.

In John 1:29 John Baptist stated, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” Jesus became the paschal lamb. To be called a Lamb of God means that God gave Jesus to be killed like a lamb for our sins so we could live forever. Just like the lamb on each Passover day, Jesus was taken to the altar. Blameless and sinless, He became sin for each one of us.

Jesus declared, It is finished.” The Bible tells us that He gave up the spirit. His life was taken. in John 19:28-30 The Greek word is Tetelestai the verb teleo, which means “to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish or paid in full.He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever. Not that Jesus wiped away any debt that He owed to the Father; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by mankind—the debt of sin. Jesus died victor and accomplish His work what came to do.

Believer Bible wrote, For three hours, the earth has been enveloped in thick darkness. Now “Immanuel’s orphaned cry” echoes through the universe: “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

Behind the poignant question lies an awful reality—the suffering Savior actually was, literally and completely, forsaken byw God. The Eternal Son who had always been the object of His Father’s delight was now abandoned. The Perfect Man who unfailingly did the will of God experienced the terrible desolation of being cut off from God.

The question is, “Why?” Why should the holy, sinless Son of God suffer the concentrated horror of eternal hell in those three long hours of darkness? Scripture gives us the answer. First of all, God is holy, righteous, and just, and this means that He must punish sin wherever He finds it. To wink at sin or to overlook it is impossible for God. That brings us to the second point. Although

The Wareen Weirsbe wrote The opening words of the psalm immediately transport us to the cross in Matthew 27;46 and Mark 15:34, for Jesus quoted them at the close of a three-hour period of darkness . “I am not alone,” Jesus had told His disciples, “because the Father is with me” John 16:32, and yet He cried out that the Lord had forsaken Him. When He spoke these words, He had been engaged in a mysterious transaction with the Father, dying for the sins of the world. On the cross, Jesus was “made sin” a and made “a curse” Gal. 3:13 for us. In some inexplicable way He experienced what condemned lost sinners experience “away from the presence of the Lord.

Two Symbol Of The Cross and Its Meaning

Ever notice that church and the fallen comrades or soldiers use the cross as symbol, and they use the symbol is the cross for different reasons; however, they’re are remarkably similarity. One died to set us free from the tyranny of our sin. While the other sacrifice themselves to set us free from the tyranny of the oppressor who trying to overtake the world. Both willingly went to serve, and obeyed their commanding officer. Both eventualities liberated the people from their dictators. Both were not responsible for the cause and effect of what happened. The first is the fallen soldiers; the second is Jesus Christ.

First, the solider or militaries who were men or women that enlisted in the army, navy, or air force, and were trained for combat. In the event of a threat these, men and women were willing go into harm way to protect the laws of land because they value their freedom.

While Canada and United States is known for the land of the free. They both have laws that give the citizens the right to express their religious beliefs, and worship God openly and we’re protect them from being persecuted. The laws that the government enacted laws are designed to protect the people not harm them. When we openly disagree with the laws, and politicians we able to voices are concerns. When justice is not melded properly, we’re able appeal the decision without being concern mistreated. Both countries can vote for the politicians in or out the office without any blood shed.

Many countries are governed by dictators, and they are the law, and they decide what is best for the people. Some dictators hate the American way, and want to destroy it, and level the to ground, and impose their oppressive law upon on our freedom. There’re times when war is a called for evil, where you need to eradicate the evil by sending men and women into harm way like removing tumour from your body regrettably these brave men and women are casualties of war, and their blood is shed and they sacrifice themselves, and they should be honor and remembered for their bravery. Corporal Nathan Cirillo is great example honoring the fallen solider. He was shot by terrorist while on duty at a ceremonial sentry duty.

In her novelette Where ever Go Martha Tigchelaar – Turkstra wrote these words, “These were days of great anxiety on the home front, for our parents and our church. Our concern was for boys as dad and mom lovingly called them. Needless to say, many prayers went up for each one of them. On May 4th, and 5th, 1945 the Germans finally withdrew the troops. Uncle Wilfred travel throughout Holland. That was time of great rejoicing our family in Holland, to actually hear, to touch, and see a Turkstra clan in a Canadian uniform. Many Canadians have fallen in the battle to free Holland, and thousands lay buried there. This was truly amazing. Hedser Turkstra, a cousin, told Wilford that Dad’s debt to his family –incurred years earlier to make the move to Canada –was now settled because three of his sons had joined in the fight to free Holland.”

Throughout North America and Europe there’re many grave sites with crosses on them, in remembrance of the fallen soldiers who fought so bravely and were willing to sacrifice their lives for sake of our freedom! Never forget these brave men and women who fought and sacrifice themselves for our freedom!

Jesus Christ And The Cross S Symbol Of Forgiveness

The God Man That Knew No Sin

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

2 Corinthians 5; 21

In Memory Of Persecuted The Saints Part Thirteen

ASAAD SHIDIAK

Assad Saidiak lived middle east in the country of Lebanon and was born in the district north of Beirut. His parents were devoted Muslims. He had four brothers and two sisters.

At the age of sixteen he entered the college of Ain Warka, and spent a year and a half in studying grammar, (Arabic”“and Syriac,) logic and theology. After this he passed two years teaching theology to the monks of a convent near Hadet.”Assad was dismissed without ceremony. Where he encountered a gentlemen named Mr King He pronounced him to be one of the most intelligent natives of the country, where they had met and discuss religious subjects.

For he began in earnest study of the Bible, and made constant progress in the knowledge of scriptures.

He became a “protestant in faith, and, as there is every reason to believe, he was a genuinely a pious man.

However, he was not sure if he was born again even thou he understood the gospel. Someone proposed to prayer and make inquiries, and see where the path lays,and allow your conscious be your guild. He came conclusion Jesus was Son of God who came to redeemed humanity from the curse of sin.

Upon reading Apocrypha he came to the conclusion that they were not by inspired by God. Because he studied the scriptures in-depth, he was competent to distinguish between a false doctrine and a false creeds. The more he studied, the more he was convince that the church of Rome is radically wrong the Pope was not infallible.

Asaad point out these inconsistent or question the Bishop and patriarchs on the Church doctrines and thier beliefs. Stating“No your holiness, “that is not the meaning of the passages.“Assad has often remarked, that he is full of anxiety, and finds no rest for the sole of his foot. In many ways he sees the Romish church to be “wrong. My own countrymen was against him, and there was so much error, and creeds He could not please them.

However, Assad was biblically correct, nevertheless, he was going up against a networks that was morally corrupt and not willy to give it up their power, and there intend was to afflict as much damage possible to keep Assad inline. There would be a great cost, and he would pay a great prize for declaring the truth.

However, he defended the great doctrines of the gospel, and he besought, that the scriptures might be circulated, and read, and be made the only standard of faith, and rule of practice. that evangelists might be sent through the land.

The patriarch in the middle east is the bishop of the Catholic church where he, rose up in wrath, and threatened him with imprisonment and death if continue to preached the gospel.

When Assad talks to Mr Bird his desires was display love to his to adversary and his people. He also believes in prayer to open the spiritual eyes who live in darkness, he uttered these words,“I now beseech you once more, to pray for me, that I may be delivered from the dark devices of men.

His desire was talk about Jesus Christ his Lord, that he would establishd His love.

However, the patriarch accuse of being mad or insane, and pity him, and declare him a heretic. They also threaten to arrested, and throw him in dungeon again. He replied,“that he was ready to go to prison and to death. He was engaging in daily disputes with the patriarch and others. Even thou, “His countenance wore a shade of melancholy, and his eyes were red with weeping.” Similar to the prophet Jeremiah where he wept over his kinship and the Catholic church.

As long he opens their eyes to the truth. Where Jesus came to redeemed mankind from the curse sin and is the true the Messiah not the church or pope.

According Assad much their teaching was not found in scriptures. “From this I was the more established in my convictions against the doctrines of the pope, and saw that they were the doctrines of the ravenous beast, and not of the gentle lamb.

Even though he was warned not to declare this truth to his people.He started neither death, nor life, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, separates us from love of Christ.

Where the “patriarch inquired of me my faith. He then explained to him what I believed respecting the unity and trinity of God “and that the Messiah was one person with two natures, and that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and Son.”

Furthermore, he started, “we may know, from the holy scriptures, every thing necessary to our salvation. Jesus declared these words,“You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me. Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

In presence of the patriarch to say that my faith was like that of the Romish church. He replied, that I feared to tell a falsehood by saying a thing, while, in my reason, I did not believe it. “But,” said they, “the patriarch here will not absolve you from the sin of this a falsehood.” I turned to the Patriarch and put the question whether he would so absolve. “He answered, that he would.”

According to scriptures only Jesus can atone humanity from their sins not the pope, bishops or priests can not absolve people from their sins

When Assad consult Hoory Joseph Shaheen, he told them “he did not believe that the pope was infallible in matters of faith. Furthermore he declared,“that it was impossible for him to teach any thing contrary to the council of Trent. Despite uphill battle he was a faithful servant of the Lord. John the Baptist declares Jesus was the lamb of God who take away the sins of world.

“True and living faith must be divine “connected with hope, love and repentance, and that all these virtues are the gift of God; that I believed the truth as God had inspired it; and that it would be but a lie, if I should say that I believed as the Romish church does, while in “fact I do not. I must have proofs.

However, Asaad while was biblically correct, however, he was going after a networks that was morally corrupt.

The Bishop declare him a hectic again, and his doctrine inaccurate, and threaten take away his livelihood. He also ask them to swear to “eucharist and by the gospel, that my faith was like the faith of the Roman Catholic church. He declared that he would look into further. However, the Catholic doctrine give him huge headache when continue to look into them. Where utter these words, “And here I wish to say a word to every reader that regards and loves the truth; how does doctrine appear to you? and how could I “believe in all which the Romish church holds, without knowing all of it? and how could I say, without a lie, that I believe, when I do not believe?

It worth noting in North America today we have the freedom to disagree with the Roman Catholic, and the Muslim doctrines, and church hop without any threats. In Assad era you simply did not go against the Roman Catholic or Muslims creeds without a paying a price. Jesus declared these words in scripture“You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me. Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven.

Assad declares these words,But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars—their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is second death. He “rose to depart. When I reached the door, I turned and said to him, “I will hold fast the religion of Jesus Christ, and I am ready for the sake gospel to shed my blood; and though you should all become infidels,than he left the room.

“Armenian priest threaten excommunication to his own brother, and his mother, if he continue in denouncing the Catholic doctrines.

A Bishop in Beirut felt pity for him was unwilling they should be to put in chains to die a lingering death. However, the Bishop and Assad discuss the infallible of Pope where Assad inquired ask where found in scriptures He quoted, Thou art Peter found in Matthew 16:18“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

The problem that Peter denied Jesus three times. Previously he was called Simon meaning listen” or hearing a common name among Jews. However,Jesus renamed Peter meaning little boulders or little rocks. Note the text it states, Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, meaning a big rock or boulder. Meaning Jesus is the head of the church not Peter.

Asaad declared that the pope was infallible, and the apostles not; “that the pope was infallible, and the apostles not; for it was well known to all, that the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles in a peculiar manner.

Furthermore, he started, “Were they not all infallible as well as Peter? He would not!! Excellence point!!!

Assad intention was “teach in the school of Ain Warka, I will do that. “No, I cannot have you go to Ain Warka, to corrupt the minds of those who are studying science, and to contradict my opinions.

Furthermore the Bishop started, “I will not suffer you to “go back among my flock to deceive them, and turn them away to heresy. Furthermore he attempting “he is even attempting to make heretics of us also. They continue threaten him “The bishop then turned to me“in the bitterest anger and rage, reviling me and saying, “If you go among my people again, I will send and take your life. They would not hesitate to take his life since they had permission from the goverment. He responded,“If you wish to kill me, or shut me up in prison, or give me up to the government, or whatever it may be, I wish to know it

Furthermore he started,“I asked the bishop his reasons for wishing to kill me. What evil had I done?” The bishop was concern that would corrupt his people

They more concern about about fleecing the sheep instead of feeding the sheep, and keeping them in the darkness, and putting them under a heavy burden on them,and not lifting a finger help them. Jesus declares these words, If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

Furthermore, Jesus started  They tie up heavy loads that are hard to carry and put them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves aren’t willing to lift a finger to move them.  They do everything to be observed by others: They enlarge their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels. They love the place of honour at banquets, the front seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by people.Matthew 23:4-7

Assad responded by stating,“Our Lord Jesus Christ said, out of the abundance of “the heart the mouth speaketh, and that Satan, who was in his heart, wished to kill me, for Satan was a murderer from the beginning.” I told him, moreover, that he was not a true disciple of Christ.

The patriarch attempted bride him. “by way of flattery to promise him all the worldly advantages he could bestow him; if he should put away all the heretical notions,“corrupt knowledge, which the Bible-men, those enemies of the pope, had taught him.”

Assad desire was to be true disciple of Christ, and to serve Him, and by using the Scriptures to defend his positions in front of the bishops, and the priests. He stated“ may act as a disciple and servant of Christ” He further stated, “And I beg every member of my sect, i. e. of the Maronite church, who loves truth, if he “sees me in an error to point it out to me.

A bishop“I do not wish to attempt to point out my errors; for such men, it is evident, need rather to be preached to, than to preach; and to be guided, rather than to guide.” Furthermore he declared,“I cannot confess to be correct, although it should cost me the shedding of my blood. Be it known, that I am not seeking money, nor office; nor do I fear any thing.“from contempt, nor from the cross, nor from the persecution of men, nor from their insults, nor their evil accusations, so far as they are false. For I am ready for the sake of Christ to die daily.“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.

He further stated,“there is no salvation for me unless I submit to the pope, or at least shew me that it is lawful to do so. In short he willingly die for the sake of the gospel. The bishop and priest not could produce any evident that pope was infallible but a mere man.However, Assad put a nail in his coffin. You simply do not go against powerful people without paying the price.

His four earthly brothers, and family turn on him as well. Jesus declares Now great crowds ere traveling with Him. So He turned and said to them: 26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, and even his own life—he cannot be My disciple. 27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

Luke 14:25-27. Furthermore he declared, 21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will even rise up against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone because of My name. But the one who endures to the end will be delivered. 28 Don’t fear those who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; rather, fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

“They taunted, mocked Assad and threatened him, calling him possessed, mad, and under Satan when they visit him in the chamber.

The bishop and priest agree let the family take him home as long he did not preach the gospel among his people. Assad objected declaring these words,“must I go and live like a dumb man? No, that I will never do.“My religion binds me not to do it. I must love my neighbour as myself.”

“Secure me but the free exercise of my conscience, and I will go with you. My religion is my all, and I must be free in it.

Even his familybwas against him.Her mother stated,“Away, with Christ, and the word of God; what have we to do with them!” She also believe that scriptures taught paganism, or witchcraft. She told him it all was over—my son is hopelessly lost! His brother Phares enter the chamber. Assad requested that he should read New Testament in which he agreed.

“The sheikh before mentioned offer his daughter if“marriage, on condition he should leave the English or the gospel and come back home. Because he openly declare the gospel he was constant danger The emir had made arrangement to assassinate him and had men to lie in wait for that purpose.

Assad was arrested put in chain subjected cruelty, and accused being mad along again.

In the Fox Martyr account they wrote thefollowing,“He was confined in a small room with an iron collar round his neck fastened to the wall with a strong chains. He had to prepare his own meals. He also tortured, and tie him upside down and best his feet, constantly taunting him for believing in Christ

He subjected to lies by the bishop, priest, and the patriarchs while others felt he was demoniac. His malady increases upon him, until I have been obliged to take severe measures with “him, and put him under keepers, lest he should escape from here, and grow worse, and infuse his poison into others.

He escaped, however, he was incarcerated was subject to more beating and they mock his faith, and declare him heretics, and pleaded him to return to the church, and their teachings. You will die under your tortures, and go to perdition. He stated the following, Whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. I am willing to expose myself to every indignity and “suffering for the sake of Him who loved us, and shed his precious blood for our salvation. They all laugh at him, and scorn him, called him a madman, and they continue to beat him.

Martyrs is Greek word to witness meaning to declare a belief in (a god or religion) They would testify to their faith. The meaning martyrs someone who suffers persecution and death for advocating, renouncing, refusing to renounce, or refusing to advocate a religious belief or cause as demanded by an external party.

Even thou Assad severely persuaded for his faith he still declare Jesus as Lord, and uses the scriptures to validate his points. For example he utter these words, several times, I am willing to expose myself to every indignity and “suffering for the sake of Him who loved us, and shed his precious blood for our salvation. He willingly be persecute endure insults, and evil accusations, so far as he was. concern they were false teachers. He stated I am ready for the sake of Christ to die daily.“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us. Remember Jesus was “beaten, and spit upon, and led as a sheep to the slaughter, on our account.“I am a Christian, a follower of Jesus of Nazareth.

Remember Assad declaring the gospel

As scripture declares,Then, if anyone hears the sound of the trumpet but ignores the warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but ignored the warning, his blood is on his own hands. If he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. However, if the watchman sees the sword coming but doesn’t blow the trumpet, so that the people aren’t warned, and the sword comes and takes away their lives, then they have been taken away because of their iniquity, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood. Ezekiel 33:4-6. Simply put if they are rejecting the gospel,and ignore the Assad warning, the blood is now on their own hands.

Assad was faithfully declaring Jesus as Lord and His atoning work. He no longer bears the responsibilities.

Remember Jesus made this promise, that those who believe Him will have eternal life. John 3;15-16

When go up against wolves wearing sheep clothing you need arm yourself with the scriptures. For example the exchange between Assad and the bishop. “Priest,—”We kiss it in honour of him ( Jesus) who hung upon it. (Cross) where he responded, “honour, and all paid him obeisance; but when he was on the cross, he was in sorrow and disgrace.” The priest reproved him gently for returning such answer, ” He pleaded with the high priest to search the scriptures yourself , and see who is telling the truth.

When the bishop heard in other to started hurling insult at him, and beated with a slipper, and. stated “your contempt of the cross, and of the worship of the images, whose worship is only in honour of those to whose memory they are set up, and who laboured and died in the service of Christ.

Assad replied, the forefather have gone to inherit unspeakable glory in their master’s presence when they declared the gospel.

Concerning the false religion they will organize, and well thought out could easy deceiving the elect. You need to arm yourself with the scripture as Assad did, and prepare yourself be little and suffer as Assad did. Jesus declare in scripture,  False messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Take note: I have told you in advance. So if they tell you, ‘Look, He’s in the wilderness!’ don’t go out; ‘Look, He’s in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.Matthew 24:24-26

Remember Satan is deceitful and clever as scriptures declares, For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christfor even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. Remember Jesus warned His follower, if they persecuted Him they also persecuted you the apostle Peter wrote Dear friends, don’t be surprised when the fiery ordeal comes among you to test you as if something unusual were happening to you.Instead, rejoice as you share in the sufferings of the Messiah, so that you may also rejoice with great joy at the revelation of His glory. If you are ridiculed for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. Apostle Paul wrote, For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. Assad died in 1832 he was 35 years old little was known how he died, however, there is every reason to believe that he loves and obeys the truth, that he is sanctified by it, rooted and grounded in it, and ready to suffer for it. Surgeon wrote “I-value these iron chains far more than if they had been of gold; it is a sweet thing to die for Christ.

I live in a country where you are free express your Christian faith, and no one what torture you and throw. in prison for believing in Christ. The worst that you may endure is occasional insulted, and be little trusting in Christ.

However, there well be a time in the future when the current law that protected you from free speech, and your religious liberties and belief would be striken from the law book. My prayer is that will be faithful like Assad was in declaring the gospel.

Prayer Walking

Seek the welfare of the city I have deported you to. Pray to the Lord on its behalf, for when it has prosperity, you will prosper.”

Jeremiah 29:7

Al Santino wrote Prayer walking is slowing down and stopping… We are listening for God’s voice to tell us, “You need to make an observation here.”

When turning 65, I had the idea to take the bus through the city. One thing learns there are lonely people without hope Jesus declare these words. When He saw the crowds, He felt compassion for them because they were weary and worn out, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples,  “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

John Calvin wrote My intention was only to furnish a kind of rudiments, by which those who feel some interest in religion might be trained to true godliness. And I toiled at the task chiefly for the sake of my countrymen, the French, multitudes of whom I perceived to be hungering and thirsting after Christ, while very few seemed to have been duly imbued with even a slender knowledge of him. That this was the object which I had in view is apparent from work itself, which is written in a simple and elementary form adapted for instruction.

Al Santino wrote Prayer walking is slowing down and stopping… We are listening for God’s voice to tell us, “You need to make an observation here.”

The question, who is your neighbour, how should you treat your neighbour.? Why should you pray for them? Scripture states fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility, consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his interests but also for the interests of others. Make your attitude that of Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:2-5

Someone once stated when you encounter an individual; whether they are a beggar, a person of the streets or addict, or your next doors living in quiet neighbourhood, and ifencounter them briefly, or over long period time. You need to treat them with dignity and respect that is your neighbour is a person meet every day whether it is your neighbour, the homeless the beggar on street or drug addict. They are created in God-image, and bear the scars of sins.

The bottom line, all humanity has sinned, and we have fallen short of God’s glory. That why pray for them because they have souls

If we do not love our them and with all our heart, and our soul and our mind. How could we say we love them?

The question, who is your neighbour? How should you treat your neighbour.? scripture states fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility, consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his interests but also for the interests of others. Make your attitude that of Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:2-5

Someone once stated when you encounter an individual; whether they are beggar a person of the streets or junkies or your next doors in a quiet neighbourhood, you need to treat them with dignity and respect that your neighbour is a person created in God-image.

Dr. Tim Kellor wrote, By depicting a Samaritan helping a Jew, Jesus could not have found a more forceful way to say that anyone at all in need – regardless of race, politics, class, and religion – is your neighbour. Not everyone is your brother or sister in faith, but everyone is your neighbour, and you must love your neighbour.”

The bottom line I fall short. Of this, and I do not love my neighbour with all my heart, soul and my mind and it work in the process!!!

You need three elements, to reach the lost, one someone, to preaches, someone to prayer, and most importantly, you need Holy Spirit to move through Christians and non-Christians.

In Timothy 2:1 it states, First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone,

The lost needs Jesus as a believer, whether rich or poor, As follower of Christ we need to pray for them through intercession prayer

I believe Joan Cushine penned-these words, and The Christian is freed from the bondage of sin; the penalty of sin; the guilt of sin; the dominion of sin; the power of sin. And finally, we are freed from the fear of death and hell—such things we are freed from. But there are two sides to such questions as this. There are some things that we are rid of. First, we are freed to all that is in the Bible. Here is a never-failing treasury filled with boundless stores of divine grace. It is the bank of heaven—we may draw from it as much as we please. Next, we are freed to the throne of grace. We have a right to go to God’s throne at all times. We have a right to enter into the heavenly city. Only those who believe in Christ atoning work could make this claim.

That why we pray for the lost would be part of God’s family. As C.S Lewis stated, I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God. It changes me.”God gives us the grace to see through His and is helpless instead of his own eyes.

The parable of the good Samaritan is an excellent example of how you treat your neighbours. The moral of fable that its humanity, which is the victims of sin, is incapably rescuing himself; the good Samaritan is Jesus Christ. Jesus said the lawyer, ”go and do likewise.” Dr. Tim Kellar, That man might be half dead, but we were destroyed—dead in our sins (Eph. 2:1). Yet Christ did not leave us to be the living dead. On the cross, he did not merely risk his life or purity to help us; he freely gave it. Today, he speaks life into our death—even when we cannot love him or anyone else. He comes to our brokenness and vulnerability to rescue us by his grace. In this way, Jesus himself is the Good Samaritan.

We must say to ourselves something like this: ‘Well, when Jesus looked down from the cross, he didn’t think “I am giving myself to you because you are so attractive to me.” No, he was in agony, and he looked down at us – denying him, abandoning him, and betraying him – and in the greatest act of love in history, he STAYED. He said, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” He loved us, not because we were lovely to him, but to make us lovely. That is why I am going to love my spouse.’ Speak to your heart like that, and then fulfill the promises you made on your wedding day.”

The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves, still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God’s sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at the very same time. This creates a radical new dynamic for personal growth. It means that the more you see your flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and unforgettable God’s grace appears to you. But on the other hand, the more aware you are of God’s grace and acceptance in Christ, the more able you are to drop your denials and self-defences and admit the true dimensions and character of your sin.”

Essential of Prayer

The first is found in, Genesis 4:26 A son was born to Seth also, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of the LORD.

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Romans 10:13 –

Got questions stated Prayer should not be seen as our means of getting God to do our will on earth, but rather as a means of getting God’s will done on earth. God’s wisdom far exceeds our own.We pray to demonstrate our faith in God, that He will do as He has promised in His Word and bless our lives abundantly more than we could ask or hope for (Ephesians 3:20). Prayer is our primary means of seeing God work in others’ lives. Because it is our means of “plugging into” God’s power,it is our means of defeating Satan and his army that we are powerless to overcome by ourselves.

There are six types of prayers, praise, petition (supplication), intercession thanksgiving and confessions. The most effective way is to uses of the scriptures.

We come to God in prayer for a variety of reasons—to worship Him, to confess our sins and ask for forgiveness, to thank Him for His blessings, to ask for things for ourselves, and/or to pray for the needs of others

Praisef one’s gratitude and respect towards a deity, especially in a song. … There are three Hebrew words in the Bible that are translated as praise. One is “yadah” which means “praise or give thanks or confess is simply means honouring God giving Him adoring through song, and reading His word. For y of voice in thanks, to applaud or clap, to speak well of God or conversation, and celebrate.

Jonathan Edwards wrote,Tis from the little that the saints have seen of God, and know of Him in this world, that they are excited to praise Him in the degree they do here. But here they see but as in a glass darkly; they have only now and then a little glimpse of God’s excellency; but then they shall have the transcendent glory and divine excellency of God set in their immediate and full view. They shall dwell in His immediate glorious presence, and shall see face to face (I Cor. 13:12). Now the saints see the glory of God but by a reflected light, as we in the night see the light of the sun reflected from the moon; but in heaven they shall directly behold the Sun of righteousness, and shall look full upon Him when shining in all His glory.”

They have another sense how great a gift the gift of God’s only-begotten Son is. They have another sense of the greatness and dignity of the Person of Christ, and how great a thing it was for Him to become man, and how great a thing it was for Him to lay down His life, and to endure the shameful and accursed death of the cross.” “… and have another sense what eternity is.

The church of God on earth ought to be employed in the same work with the saints in heaven … we ought now to begin that work which we intend shall be the work of another world …. If our hearts be not in some measure tuned to praise in this world, we shall never do any thing at the work hereafter.”

“If you praise God sincerely in this world, it will be a sign that you are really to be one of those that shall praise Him in heaven.” petition (supplication

Means,Supplication is a request. And if the request is made to God, it becomes a prayer or When we’re humble before God, we acknowledge our sinful condition as well as God’s holiness. Humble people pray with right motives (James 4:1-3). We will pray on behalf of other people (that’s called intercession). We will believe in God’s wisdom and timing because we won’t presume to understand God’s overarching plan.

Supplication arms us with the strength and courage to suffer and wait while we ask for relief. If we’re truly humble, we will ask in faith and continue to believe even when life doesn’t turn out like we had hoped (James 1:5-8

Scriptures declares,“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6

A petition, just as it is in the political arena, is a request to a sovereign to take some action. Any request made of God, is thus a petition. Prayer, on the other hand, is any communication with God

For example the Apostle Paul wrote, Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you. Or Hannah said For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. The Lord Prayer concert a petition,Luke 11:1-4, and Matthew 6:9-13

The most common prayer petition is Philippians 4:6

intercession means, A person who intervenes on behalf of another, especially by prayer or Prayer warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others.

For example in, First John 2:1 points out, “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” Jesus is the Advocate of the Christian, working on behalf of those who are His children in order to provide forgiveness and access to the Father.

Jesus’ intercession points also to the fact that Jesus is alive and has received authority to be the eternal, perfect high priest. In the Old Testament, high priests were ordained to act on behalf of the people. They had to bring sacrifices for sin on behalf of the Israelites and pray for them too (Hebrews 5:1). But it had to be done over and over again. Priests died, so new priests had to be appointed (Hebrews 7:23). But Jesus only needed to bring the sacrifice one time.

But Jesus only needed to bring the sacrifice one time. Then He was raised from the dead: this underlines the eternal value of the sacrificial death He died (Romans 6:9). And because He is alive, He is able to intercede for us without end. He continues forever (Hebrews 7:24).

Remember He died for. All those who have found forgiveness in Him have the assurance of His interce. What does Jesus pray about you (if you believe in Him)? Need you ever fear losing your salvation? Memorize Hebrews 7:25.

Someone can lose your salvation,my response how could your salivation if it already determine? Ephesians 1:4-5: For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will.

Human example would be Abraham interceding on behalf Lot and family.Genesis 18;16-33 or Judah interceding on Benjamin behalf, Genesis 44: 18 -34 or Easter interceding her people behalf.Esther 7: 3-4, 8; 6

Thanksgiving means a prayer expressing gratitude toward and Jesus Christ grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors. The Greek word is Ευχαριστία meaning thankfulness, giving of thanks to God

As scriptures declares,Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.Remember what He accomplished on the cross

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:4-5,

Chip Ingram wrote,We’re to pray with thanksgiving – not just when we feel like it, but as an act of our will and obedience. Regardless of what’s happening in our lives, we’re to thank God for the good, for the difficult, for the unknown, for the big decision we’re facing, and even for the challenging relationships. Further more he wrote,Now, this isn’t, “Oh, God, I thank You that my wife has cancer.”  Instead it is, “Thank You, God, that You are sovereign, You are all-knowing, You are with me, and You love my wife.”

My wife, Theresa, actually did have cancer and we went through a very difficult time. Yet it was possible for me to say “thank you” in the midst of it because I chose to surrender and acknowledge my faith in an all-powerful, all-knowing God.

On personal note often, when I go through times of trouble waters,I recite this verse,”Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Remember the apostle Paul wrote this letter in jail or dungeons

Confessions Scripture declares,If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.1 John 1:8,10 furthermore it states,If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:8,10

Britannica’s Wrote Confession, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the acknowledgment of sinfulness in public or private, regarded as necessary to obtain divine forgiveness. The need for confession is frequently stressed in the Bible. The mission of the Old Testament prophets was to awaken in the people a sense of sinfulness and an acknowledgment of their guilt, both personal and collective. Before the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem (AD 70), the sin offerings on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) were prefaced by a collective expression of sinfulness (Lev. 16:21), and, since the destruction of the Temple, the Day of Atonement has continued in Judaism as a day of prayer, fasting, and confession.

Further more it states,CONFESSION (Lat. confessio, from confiteor, acknowledge, confess), a term meaning in general the admission and acknowledgment that one has done something which otherwise might remain undisclosed, especially the acknowledgment of guilt or wrong-doing, either in public or to somebody specially entitled to such knowledge. The term has a special importance (I) in religion, (2) in law.

The Greek word is confess” is homologeo which basically means “to say the same thing” and then “agree, admit, acknowledge.

There are three elements in accepting the Lord, repent, confess, and believe.

To repent means to change one mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse because of sin. To confess means you agree with God that you wrong,and God declare you are a sinner.

Believer Commentary states, “ In order for us to walk day by day in fellowship with God and with our fellow believers, we must confess our sins: sins of commission, sins of omission, sins of thought, sins of act, secret sins, and public sins. We must drag them out into the open before God, call them by their names, take sides with God against them, and forsake them. To believe means,to believe, or to entrust to have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing); i.e., credit; by implication, to entrust (especially one’s spiritual well-being to Christ):—believe, commit (to trust), put trust in Jesus.

The Voice concluded, “ÒSo if you believe deep in your heart that God raised Jesus from the pit of death and if you voice your allegiance by confessing the truth that “Ò Jesus is Lord,”Ó then you will be saved! Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation. Faith is not something we do. It is a response to what God has done already on our behalf, the response of a spirit restless in a fragmented world.When a Christian repents and believes the Gospel of Jesus Christ, all of their sins, past, present, and future are immediately forgiven! As scriptures declares,If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation. Now the Scripture says, Everyone who believes on Him will not be put to shame,

For example the late Susan Akins wrote following,. After holding Sharon Tate she pleading with Tex and Susan to spare her, and her eight-month baby, she uttered these words, ” Look bitch, I don’t care about you. I don’t care if you’re going to have a baby or not. You’re going to die, and I don’t feel anything about it.” She felt no guilt in her mind Sharon look like store mannequin. 

In 1974 Jesus knocked her hardened, and she accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord went was her bitter heart, and replace with a soft heart. According to Susan Christ assured her that in the depths of her soul that Old things had passed away, behold all things have become new, II Corinthians 5:17  On death bed her fellow prisoner recited Psalm 23. While on earth she died in prison because she was responsible committing seven murders; however, in heaven the saints uttering a different story welcoming her into heaven and rejoicing along with the other saints

Christopher Columbus wrote I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Present

Charles Spurgeon wroteMy evidence that I am saved does not lie in the fact that I preach, or that I do this or that. All my hope lies in this: that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. I am a sinner, I trust Him, then He came to save me, and I am saved.

Furthermore he My evidence that I am saved does not lie in the fact that I preach, or that I do this or that. All my hope lies in this: that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. I am a sinner, I trust Him, then He came to save me, and I am saved.

In personal testament I wrote God heard my prayer. God also heard another prayer that day my mother and sister Marcia prayer her foolish rebellious are now believer. As scripture says in the same way, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents.

Acknowledging your sins before Christ simply works!!!!

Instant Salvation

Tex Waston wrote“In the world when something is broken, it is set aside. But in the Kingdom of God, He sets aside the unbroken thing. It is the precious, broken thing that He uses to confound the wise and show the world His glory through vessels of clay. Or H.A Ironside wrote, ”God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God.”

John Newton wrote a hymn called Amazing Grace is well-known in declaring the gospel. One part hymn states, ”Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved; How precious did that grace appear. The hour I first believed.

Let examine the hour I first believed, first twas grace taught his heart to fear;How precious did that grace appear.The hour I first believed.

John Newton,he forgot the Saviour whom his mother had so often commended to him in childhood, and while he became, like one of old, a ‘blasphemer and injurious,’however, it was all leading to a day – in the midst of a tremendous storm at sea – when he was brought to say: ‘I stood in need of an Almighty Saviour, and such a one I found described in the New Testament. To say all-around bad guy would be an understatement, often he would use foul language around a Christian, or mock Jesus he took great pleasure in sneering the Christian.,

However, it was all leading to a day – in the midst of a tremendous storm at sea – when he was brought to say: ‘I stood in need of an Almighty Saviour,

After Newton ended his seafaring days he became tide-surveyor in Liverpool, a thriving slave port with a population of 22,000. It was here that Newton first heard the great evangelist, George Whitefield, With the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God. At grace site these words written,”JOHN NEWTON. Clerk. Once an infidel and libertine a servant of slaves in Africa was by the rich mercy of our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. He understood that he failed God, yet understood yet also understood instant forgiveness. How precious did that grace appear.The hour I first believed.

For example, the Apostle Paul is known as Saul persecute the church attempted to destroy the church in the infant stage. While on the road to Damascus Saul was still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord. He went to the high priest and requested letters from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.

Suddenly a light from heaven suddenly flashed around him.

Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

“Who are You, Lord?” he said. “I am Jesus, the One you are persecuting,” He replied.  “But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

The last voice he expected to hear was Jesus’s voice, remembering he was attempting to destroy the church.

But Jesus stated But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do. Most people would have lower Saul ears and would said how dare destroys my ministry and the people who were serving me. Yet Jesus stated, But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.

In Acts 26:17-18 I will rescue you from the people and from the Gentiles. I now send you to them to open their eyes so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that by faith in Me they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified. Saul understood he was forgiven for persecuting the church.

He later wrote,one who was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an arrogant man. But I received mercy because I acted out of ignorance in unbelief. This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” —and I am the worst of them. But I received mercy for this reason, so that in me, the worst of them, Christ Jesus might demonstrate His extraordinary patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life.

Another example is a Samaritan woman who had five husbands, and man living with her was not her husband. She stated “I see that You are a prophet. Later on she state.The woman said to Jesus, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ ). “When He comes, He will explain everything. In John 4:26, Jesus stated,  “I am He, “the One speaking to you.”

Then the woman left her water jar, went into town, and told the men, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah?” They left the town and made their way to Him.

Remember she came to draw water, and avoiding the town people on the account of her life style. She understood all her sins we’re forgiven. Later on chapter stated, ” Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of what the woman said when she testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” And they told the woman, “We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world.

Another example is found in Luke 7:37-50, And a woman in the town who was a sinner found out that Jesus was reclining at the table in the Pharisee’s house. She brought an alabaster jar of fragrant oil and stood behind Him at His feet, weeping, and began to wash His feet with her tears. She wiped His feet with the hair of her head, kissing them and anointing them with the fragrant oil. When the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, “This man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what kind of woman this is who is touching Him—she’s a sinner!”

Turning to the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she, with her tears, has washed My feet and wiped them with her hair. 45 You gave Me no kiss, but she hasn’t stopped kissing My feet since I came in. 46 You didn’t anoint My head with olive oil, but she has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. 47 Therefore I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven; that’s why[n] she loved much. But the one who is forgiven little, loves little.” Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” And He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”

Luke 7:44-48,50.

Prior Jesus stated these words, Jesus replied to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” “Teacher,” he said, “say it.” 41 “A creditor had two debtors. One owed 500 denarii, and the other 50. 42 Since they could not pay it back, he graciously forgave them both. So, which of them will love him more?” Simon answered, “I suppose the one he forgave more.” “You have judged correctly,” He told him.

In Romans 5;20 The law came along to multiply the trespass. But where sin multiplied, grace multiplied even more. Furthermore, scriptures declares, All have sinnned, and fall short.

In Mark 5 ; 1-20, In the region of the Gerasenes an unclean spirit came out of the tombs and met Him. He lived in the tombs. No one was able to restrain him anymore—even with chains — because he often had been bound with shackles and chains, but had snapped off the chains and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to subdue him. And always, night and day, he was crying out among the tombs and in the mountains and cutting himself with stones.

When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and knelt down before Him. And he cried out with a loud voice, “What do You have to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You before God, don’t torment me!” 9 “What is your name?” He asked him. “My name is Legion,” he answered Him, “because we are many.Jesus casts the demons into the pigs.

They came to Jesus and saw the man who had been demon-possessed by the legion, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind.

As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed kept begging Him to be with Him. But He would not let him; instead, He told him, “Go back home to your own people, and report to them how much the Lord has done for you and how He has had mercy on you.” So he went out and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and they were all amazed. Remember he had 6 to 8 thousands within him and, they torment him night and day. The next minute he dressed and in his right mind. All he would do declare that Jesus had mercy on him. Remember he was well known in this region.

Another example would be David Berkowitz known as Son of Sam While serving his time in prison the fear and anguished still haunted him, and lived in torment for ten years. Especially at nighttime when he was alone in his cell trying to sleep the demons would would still torment him.

However, David encountered a man named Rick, He told him that Jesus Christ loves him, and he wanted to forgive him, and had a plan and purpose in his life, and God sent me personally to this prison to tell you this.” Berkowitz shook his head, immediately dismissing. “There’s no way Jesus Christ could love me,” Berkowitz said. “I’ve done too much evil.” Rick insisted, “Jesus doesn’t hate you. He loves you”, however, David did accept the New Testament with the Psalms and Proverbs. Until he read Psalms 34;6 where it said, “ This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him from all his troubles.”

In 1987, David Berkowitz known as Son of Sam repented of sins, and became a Christian. According to his personal testimony, his moment of conversion occurred after reading Psalm 34: 6; “This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him And saved him out of all his troubles.” He said this prayer; I told Him that I was sick and tired of doing evil. I asked for Jesus to forgive me for all my sins.” In his own words he stated, “ I spent a good while on my knees praying to Him. When I got up it felt as if a very heavy burden an invisible chain that had been around me for so many years was suddenly broken. A peace flooded over him. He did not understand what was happening. But in his heart He just knew that my life, somehow, would be different. He slept li like a baby. Another favourite text is Romans 10:13. It says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Here, it is clear that God has no favourites. He rejects no one, but welcomes all who will call upon Him.

Jesus declares these words,Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. He also declared 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned.

Scripture declares, If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

How joyful is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered! How joyful is the man the Lord does not charge with sin and in whose spirit is no deceit!

Furthermore, it, As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve or repaid us according to our offenses. In short, none would enter heaven gates, all of us would perish

So when the individual repents, confesses theirs sins, and believe that Jesus redeemed them from the curse of sins. The hymns,and the scriptures, comes alive within that person. The burden of sin is lifted from the individual, and the world seems brighter and the future is more brighter.

Tex Waston wrote, When he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into life. the heaviness he felt was gone, and a smile was on his face. The sorrow and restlessness were gone, and it was replaced with endless happiness and it was all for free. He spent all kinds of money on drugs and alcohol and in which brought him no joy. Yet, the free gift from God Jesus brought him endless delight.

The heart of the gospel is found in John 3:14-18 it states, 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 so that everyone who believes in Him will[i] have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.

The Work Of Christ

Offices of prophet, priest, and king all important in OT
OT anticipates a better officeholder for each office
The prophet of Deuteronomy 18:15
The Davidic king of 2 Samuel 7
The substitutionary servant of Isaiah 53
Jesus the Prophet, in “The crowds answered, ‘This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.’” (Matthew 21:11) Also John 4;19“‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘I can see that you are a prophet.’”
Where in Deuteronomy 18:15 For Moses said, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people. Lastly in Matthew 13;57‘Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honour.’
A prophet who speak on behalf God need to be 110% accurate in Deuteronomy 18; 20;22 ‘Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honour.’ When a prophet speaks in the Lord’s name, and the message does not come true or is not fulfilled, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.
Jesus had display that He was a prophet foretold Moses, The Heidelberg Catechism calls Him “our chief Prophet and Teacher, who has fully revealed to us the secret counsel and will of God concerning our redemption” (A. 31) RC Sproul As the Prophet, Jesus is the only One who can reveal what God has been purposing in history “since the world began” and who can teach and make manifest the real meaning of the “scriptures of the prophets” (the Old Testament; see Rom. 16:25–26). We can expect to make progress in the Christian life only as we heed His instruction and teaching.
But Christ did both perfectly. Romans 5:19 says, “By the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Romans 5:10 says, “When we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son.” There is no other way to come into the presence of God than through Christ alone.
For example in Luke 4; 18- 19 Jesus uttered “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favourable year of the Lord. And Jesus said, “While you heard these words just now, they were coming true! Since Jesus proclaims these words either he was a prophet or God Himself, since He declared these concerning Himself. The stakes were higher Him.
John MacArthur in sermon on Blind for the Glory of God spoke these words concerning Jesus healing powers, “People with deformed and diseased organs were given new organs.  People with blind eyes given new eyes.  People who couldn’t hear given new ears.

Jesus predicted his death and resurrection found in, Mark 8:31, Mark 9:30-32, and, Mark 10:32- 34: note the accuracy in Mark 10: 32 – 34,
Jesus also predicted that second temple would be completely destroyed Found in Matthew 24; 2 Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” In 70 AD 40 years after Jesus’ death and resurrection Tiberius Julius Alexander and the roman soldiers. Even thou Tiberius wanted preserved the temple, however, the Roman solider destroyed the famous Second Temple and burn it to the ground. Accordingly, Historian Josephus claimed that Titus wanted to preserve the temple, but his soldiers were so angry at their resilient opponents that they burned it. The remaining Jews were slaughtered or sold as slaves. Several thing to considered; one it occurred 40 year after Jesus death and resurrection. The Romans magistrate were not exactly friendly to the Christian cultures if any they wanted to exterminate the christian movement The Roman solder likely were not aware Jesus predication, if they knew perhaps would have left the temple intact.
Jesus also predicated many false Christs and false prophets warn His follower not to follow them or listen them.

Adolf Hitler (1889-1945 responsible for exterminating six million Jewish people.
Charles Manson 1934) ordering his family of butchering nine people 1969 serving a life sentence.
Jim Jones (1931–1978 accountable for over 909 follower to commit suicide along with himself order the the killing of man Leo Ryan U.S. Representative from California’s 11th congressional district.
Charles Ryrie “The prophet spoke to men from God; the priest speaks to God for men.”
In Leviticus 21;1, 22;16 Aaron brother Moses was appointed and his sons were appointed by God The High Priest “The prophet spoke to men from God; the priest speaks to God for men.” Scriptures declares Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying: This is the law of the sin-offering: in the place where the burnt-offering is killed shall the sin-offering be killed before the LORD; it is most holy. In Hebrew 5;1“Every high priest is selected from among men and is appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. In Leviticus 16;3-5 Aaron is to enter the most holy place in this way: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. 4 He is to wear a holy linen tunic, and linen undergarments are to be on his body. He must tie a linen sash around him and wrap his head with a linen turban. These are holy garments; he must bathe his body with water before he wears them. 5 He is to take from the Israelite community two male goats for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering. Responsible for representing the people before God Represented people especially by offering sacrifices.Two types of offerings – thank offerings and guilt offerings. “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. You are to hold a sacred assembly and practice self-denial; you are to present a fire offering to the Lord.
Where in Leviticus 16;21-22  Aaron will lay both his hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the Israelites’ wrongdoings and rebellious acts—all their sins. He is to put them on the goat’s head and send it away into the wilderness by the man appointed for the task. 22 The goat will carry on it all their wrongdoings into a desolate land, and he will release it there.
According Encyclopaedia Britannica the chief religious functionary in the Temple of Jerusalem, whose unique privilege was to enter the Holy of Holies (inner sanctum) once a year on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to burn incense and sprinkle sacrificial animal blood to expiate his own sins and those of the people of Israel. On this occasion he wore only white linen garments, forgoing the elaborate priestly vestments worn during the year whenever he chose to officiate at services. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it for you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement, by reason of the life.”Leviticus 17:11

When Jesus is called our High Priest, it is with reference to both of these previous priesthoods. Like Melchizedek, He is ordained as a priest apart from the Law given on Mount Sinai (Hebrews 5:6).as he says also in another place, You are a priest forever,
Like the Levitical priests, Jesus offered a sacrifice to satisfy the Law of God when He offered Himself for our sins (Hebrews 7:26-27). For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and pexalted above the heavens. 27 He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. Unlike the Levitical priests, who had to continually offer sacrifices, Jesus only had to offer His sacrifice once, gaining eternal redemption for all who come to God through Him (Hebrews 9:12). Jesus entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.
Hebrews has several passages depicting Jesus as the High Priest (Hebrews 2:17; 3:1; 4:14-5:10; 6:20; 7:11-8:2; 10:12). of priest was an important one in the Old Testament system and is fulfilled by Jesus.
Jesus as High Priest mediates for us. His sacrifice is what provides cleansing for our sins. Rather than a yearly (or daily) atonement, Jesus’ sacrifice is once-for-all (Hebrews 10:1-18). Jesus, like the high priests of Old Testament times, stands in the gap between us (the people) and God. He made the necessary sacrifice for us (Jesus was without sin so did not need to offer a sacrifice for Himself as did the high priests of the Old Testament). Those who have put their faith in Jesus have been made righteous by Him (2 Corinthians 5:21) and are now able to enter into God’s presence.
John 1:29 “‘Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’
Romans 8:3, “For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man…”
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15)
Also “sympathize[s] with our weaknesses” (Hebrews 4:15)
Atonement not Jesus’ only work as priest

“‘He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.’” (Luke 1:32-33)
Since the second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD were all the family tree of the Jewish descendant were kept in great details and they were scattered throughout Europe and Asia, and would have been impossible to trace Judah line never mind David line found in 2 Samuel 7:12-13 especially King Solomon line where the royal line was established, in 1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30, Believer Commentary wrote,” It seems obvious that the Messianic line ended with the Lord Jesus. No one else can ever present a valid legal claim to the throne of David.

However, there is a record found in Luke 3; 23-38 and Matthew 1; 1-16 this was the line of King David Mary and Joseph was in king David line. Mary was found in Luke 3; 23-38 for an example in Luke 3 (v. 23) was the father-in-law of Joseph and the father of Mary.also was descended from David through his son Nathan (v. 31 Solomon brother. Joseph line found in Matthew 1; 1-16 where in Matthew 1:6 it states Solomon mother of Bathsheba. Where royal line was established as promise by King David found in 1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30.
Since God promised King David that his line would reign forever found in 2 Samuel 7:12-13 However, Joseph was not Jesus’ true father since the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary found in Matthew 1:16 and Luke 3:23.
Believer Commentary wrote, In Jeremiah 22:30 God pronounced a curse on this man: Thus says the LORD:” Write this man down as childless, A man who shall not prosper in his days; For none of his descendants shall prosper, Sitting on the throne of David, And ruling anymore in Judah. The nations of Jewish people were capture and were sent into exile where they cease ruling on the throne; however, the family tree continued on until Joseph
“If Jesus had been the real son of Joseph, He could not have redeemed mankind from the of their sin. Since Joseph was also part of Adam curse, and Jesus could not be the true lamb of God that would take away the sins of the world. As scripture declares,” I was sinful when my mother conceived me. For I am conscious of my rebellion, and my sin is always before me. Yet, He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David.

The problem was solved by the miracle of the virgin birth: Jesus was the legal heir to the throne through Joseph. He was the real Son of David through Mary. The curse on Jeconiah did not fall on Mary or her children since she did not descend from Jeconiah shall not prosper, “Yet He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David. Since Joseph was in Solomon family tree where royal line was established. Since seed came from Holy Spirit Jesus would not be effect by the sin curse

“They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, ‘Hosanna!’ ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ‘Blessed is the King of Israel!’” (John 12:13)
Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, ‘Are you the king of the Jews?’ ‘Yes, it is as you say,’ Jesus replied.” (Matthew 27:11)
One day all will recognize Jesus as king
“Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter.’ He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:15-16)

Jesus True Mission


NIV Bible Notes The beginning of a new emphasis in Jesus’ ministry. Instead of teaching the crowds in parables, he concentrated on preparing the disciples for his coming suffering and death
NKJV Study Bible Here it introduces the Cross and the ultimate rejection of the Messiah. Elders and chief priests and scribes His death and resurrection.
NIV Application This phrase has occurred earlier only in 4:17, “Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near where it marked the initiation of Jesus’ mission to Israel in Galilee. Here it marks the conclusion of his Galilean mission and the initiation of his journey to Jerusalem and the mission of the cross. The revelation of Jesus’ true identity by his heavenly Father to Peter is now matched by Jesus’ revelation of his true mission to the disciples.

My brother told me every time when Jesus kept felling when He was carrying the cross. He kept getting back up because a mission to accomplished by being obedient to His Father will. His mission was become the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. While this narrative is not told in the Bible, yet that was his mission taking mankind sins and Father wrath to bridge the gap between mankind and His Father.
In Mark 1;38  And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.” In Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Believe Bible Commentary wrote His great emphasis was on preaching the Word. The healing miracles, while intended to relieve human misery, were also designed to gain attention for the preaching. Joni Eareckson Tada wrote It hit her like a ton bricks that Jesus mission was to proclaim the gospel. According to Joni the real problem was her sin in her live in which it separated her from God, in which eventually would lead her to hell. While sickness, the disable, and the lame was cause and effect of sin. It was not paralysis in which left her in a wheelchair cause and effect it was bitter spirit that indwells her soul, it was sin in her life that separate her from God. That why Jesus came to atone for her sins.

Then all the disciples deserted Him and ran away Matthew 26;56 Judas betray with kiss Peter denied three times Even Peter claim in v. 35 Even if I have to die with You,” Peter told Him, “I will never deny You!” And all the disciples said the same thing. However, the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. When Jesus needed them the most they fled like a bunch scaredy-cat. So that the Scriptures could be fufilled

Jesus knows that the Scriptures prophesying salvation through His death must be fulfilled (Luke 22:37  For I tell you, what is written must be fulfilled in Me: And He was counted among the outlaw Believer Bible Commentary If their cowardice was inexcusable, ours is more so. They had not yet been indwelt by the Holy Spirit; we have

He would be silent before his accusers Matt. 27:12-14
NIV Study Note Jesus made no reply. See 26:63; Mk 15:4; Isa 53:7 and notes. amazement of the governor. Probably because he had never seen such behavior before. He had no idea that Jesus was carrying out his Father’s plan for the redemption of the world (see note on Mk 15:4).
While Jesus was king Jews, however His kingdom was not world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders Jesus said to Peter, “Sheathe your sword! Am I not to drink the cup the Father has given Me?” He could called 12 legions of angels to aid Him

He would be oppressed Matt.27:27-31

His faith in God would be mocked Matt. 27:43 , “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” He has put His trust in God; let God rescue Him now—if He wants Him For He said, ‘I am God’s Son.’
Orthodox Study Bible Jesus accepts mockery and endures the weakness of our body in His own to take upon Himself our sufferings. This He accomplishes by uniting His divine nature to our human nature. His humanity is indeed our humanity. Although He has no sin, He was made to be sin for us, that through His flesh He might condemn sin itself (Rom 8:3; 2Co 5:21; Heb 2:9). Two robbers (v. 38): Although one would later repent (Lk 23:39–43), at first both criminals mock Jesus (v. 44).
NKJV Study Bible He was the Son of God and the King of Israel (see John 10:18). He was obediently following God’s plan for Him; His obedience would lead to His exaltation as King over all (Phil. 2:8–11). Compare the religious leaders’ taunts with Ps. 22:8.Because Jesus must pursue his life’s mission to the very end, because there the Son of God will truly save humanity.
Between the mocking and the beating between the Temple guards and the Roman soldiers, plus wearing crowns of thorns around to head and two thieves mocking Him yet did not He uttered these words , “Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing.”

He would be forsaken Matt. 27:46 Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

I can imagine going through the pain and anguish Jesus went through. For example, every time I got extremely ill I was not the most gentle person to be around with, if anything I could be ill-mannered, harsh, and unsympathetic, not the gentle spirit to all men during those times. In the movie Patch Adam played by Robin William spoke these words on the edge of cliff when his girlfriend was murdered by a patient, “ So what now, huh? What do you want from me? So answer me please. Tell me what you’re doing. Okay, let’s look at the logic. You create man. A man suffers enormous amounts of pain. A man dies. Maybe you should have had just a few more brainstorming sessions prior to creation. You rested on the seventh day. Maybe you should’ve spent that day on compassion. Looks You know what? You’re not worth it.” I’ld dare says most people tend to be unpleasant during the extremely difficult times. When I was in the hospital in occupational therapy recovering from an operation in which they removed my second toe due resulting from diabetes. A patient that was next to me names George not his real name had pneumonia, asthma, and an extremely sore back. However, he was allergic to penicillin and Tylenol 3. Every time his back would seize up it would become very painful, and he would start cursing and taking the Lord’s name in vain.
Believer Bible Commentary wrote Behind the poignant question lies an awful reality—the suffering Savior actually was, literally and completely, forsaken by God. The Eternal Son who had always been the object of His Father’s delight was now abandoned. The Perfect Man who unfailingly did the will of God experienced the terrible desolation of being cut off from God.
At about 3:00 p.m., He cried out with a loud voice, saying, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” The answer is found in Psalm 22:3: “ … You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.” Because God is holy, He cannot overlook sin. On the contrary, He must punish it. The Lord Jesus had no sin of His own, but He took the guilt of our sins upon Himself. When God, as Judge, looked down and saw our sins upon the sinless Substitute. He withdrew from the Son of His love. It was this separation that wrung from the heart of Jesus. There was never any doubt as to what God would do! He deliberately unleashed all the fury of His righteous wrath on His own beloved Son.
I know that it was for me. And it was for my sake that the heavens were silent to Him by day and by night.
What Mrs. Browning so beautifully called “Immanuel’s orphaned cry”:Deserted! God could separate from His own essence rather; And Adam’s sins have swept between the righteous Son and Father:
NKJV Study Bible It graphically parallels 2 Cor. 5:21. This was not a cry of defeat, however. Christ was quoting from Ps. 22 and may have been alluding to the great victory that the psalm describes.
Where Jesus love mankind and willingly went to the cross and offer Himself as sacrifice On it and took mankind sins and His Father wrath
so He can bridge a gap between His Father and mankind.

He would be buried in a wealthy man’s tomb Matt. 27:57-64

He would affect people throughout the world Matt. 28:19,20
The rejected stone would become the cornerstone Matt. 21:42,43

Jesus declare, Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. In gospel of Matthew there are twelve such fulfillment formulas, and more than fifty Old Testament quotations.

David BerkBowitz Who is this Saviour? He is the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Creator of the universe and the eternal Son of God who came into this world as a Man. As perfect, sinless Man, He suffered and died on the cross for our sins

Covid 19 How the Christian Community Respond

Covid 19 How the Christian Community Respond
Romans 8; 19-20,23 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for God’s sons to be revealed. 21 And not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the first fruits–we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.

23 And not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the first fruits–we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience.

On Sunday, March 29, 2020, Pastor Russell preached Waiting Patiently in Hope on Romans 8; 18-26. He stated there are struggled that life ahead and we clearly did not see we did see this coming. One God deals with suffering that touches Spirit with hope the hope God is making something new. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for God’s sons to be revealed But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience.

COVID-19 infection may appear two to 14 days after exposure and can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing cough, fever, difficulty breathing, pneumonia in both lungs.
The vast majority of confirmed cases are considered mild, involving mostly cold-like symptoms to mild pneumonia; however, those who underline health issues such as those with preexisting illnesses and the such as elderly Heart disease, Hypertension (high blood pressure. Such as Lung disease Diabetes and Cancer Or people with weakened immune systems from a medical condition or treatment, such as chemotherapy and Older adults

THE SYMPTOMS
1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.
IDENTIFICATION
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

The fault finder would asks where is God all this or why would He allow this dreaded to spread throughout the world? To me, a better question would be what role does Christians play. Since we are agent of God? What God saying personally? What lessons learn can from this?
I should start by telling my story and in what the Christian’s community has done to me pebrsonilily and the community. I am candidate with underline health issue if ever caught all of this dreaded disease it would devastate to me personality. Yet despite all l still trust the Lord. My role is to pray stay safe and to encourage others. I’ve Hyper tensions diabetes, and only one kidneys that functioning at 20%
After churches serve a retired nurse name Lois Montgomery asks me about Covid. Let say it not my fine moment in short I was ignorant SOB She trying was gracious I was not.

Last time I check Lois does not have Stuart phone# or his email address.
So It was warning from God that something dangerous was on the horizon, Since known to have a hard head along with thick hair. As pastor Russell clearly had stated I did not see this one coming The Federal, Provincial, and local government agents were unaware of the danger that laid ahead even thou they put brave faces playing the blame game wagging finger at each others. Remember it China government that cause this mess likely came from Wuhan lab, or China lab, or the wet market like from bats.
As follower of Christ our hope lies in the unseen not seeing and we wait for it patiently. Earth is not our home we just passing through where true home is heaven
Note But if we hope for what we do not see, For in this hope we were saved. But, hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? Note the word hope especially the phase we wait for it patiently. Three times the word hope appears passages the Greek that words is elpis: meaning confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness. Are hope lies unseen not seeing
While Covid 19 is awful; however, God give permission and allows it to occur . So instead looking at the bad we should be examining the good in which Christian Community is doing. But, if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Note the word hope especially the phase we wait for it patiently

Despite all this God is still sovereign and good If RC Sproul God is not sovereign, then God is not God. If ever a person had room to complain of injustice, it was Jesus.

Doctrine of Christ: The Person of Christ part one

Doctrine of Christ: The Person of Christ

 

 Who is Christ? ‘What has Christ done?’

Christ’s has two natures he is very God very man they both play  key a role in the  salvation plan. We will deal with the humanity of Christ or the person of Christ. 

As a human being, Jesus experienced all of the finite limitations that we experience as human people Jesus was physically born Luke 2:7, 11 Even more, Jesus went through normal process of embryonic/fetal development. 

To understand Jesus you need to understand Jewish culture He was The Son of David that He  fulfillment of the Davidic covenant meaning Jesus would be royalty, heir to the throne in  You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end. J C Ryle wrote To have an occupant of David’s throne requires a human being. Therefore, Messiah had to be a human being. But, to occupy that throne requires that the occupant never dies. And only God qualifies. So the One who ultimately fulfills the Davidic promise has to be a God-man.  

 Jesus is a Jew Son Abraham In Genesis 17; 4-7, 15-17   “As for Me, My covenant is with you: you will become the father of many nations. 5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I will make you the father of many nations. 6 I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you. 7 I will keep My covenant  19 But God said, “No. Your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will name him Isaac. I will confirm My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his future offspring. Matthew was writing to Jews, it was important to identify Jesus in this way. Jesus fulfills the Abrahamic covenant (see Ge 12:2–3; 15:9–21; 17; Zec 9:10 Jesus became Man as a Jew, from the lineage of Abraham, the father of all Jew

Matthew’s opening words (“Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham”) had special importance to a Jewish audience, which traced its ancestry through the covenants God made with Israel. The heading, with Jesus’ names and his ancestry, is packed with meaning.

 Joseph and Mary family tree is in Luke 3; 31 son of Nathan, son of David, In Matthew 1; 6 it states Then David fathered Solomon by Uriah’s wife, Where the is Royal Line established.

 In Matthew 1; 1-17 v 3 Judah fathered Perez and Zerah by Tamar, V 5 Salmon fathered Boaz by Rahab Boaz fathered Obed by Ruth, v 6 Then David fathered Solomon by Uriah’s wife, Believer Bile Commentary Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba (she who had been the wife of Uriah). Since women are seldom mentioned in eastern genealogical tables, the inclusion of these women is all the more astonishing in that two of them were harlots (Tamar and Rahab), one had committed adultery (Bathsheba), and two were Gentiles (Rahab and Ruth). Their inclusion in Matthew’s introduction is perhaps a subtle suggestion that the coming of Christ would bring salvation to sinners, grace to Gentiles, and that in Him, barriers of race and sex would be torn down.  Jesus family tree had many warts in them the very wore reason  he put human clothes to purchase mankind sins also there was Gentiles in Jesus family tree.

As a human being, Jesus experienced all of the finite limitations that we experience as human people

 Jesus is the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies where God established a convent between Abraham and David In Genesis 17; 4-7, 15-17   “As for Me, My covenant is with you: you will become the father of many nations. 5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I will make you the father of many nations. 6 I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you. 7 I will keep My covenant  19, But God said, “No. Your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will name him Isaac. I will confirm My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his future offspring.

In  2 Samuel 7; 11-14 ‘The Lord declares to you: The Lord Himself will make a house for you. 12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 

  Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” What was at stake God covenant and Jesus fulfilling His promise fulfilled the Law and the Prophets. Jesus not a helicopter  who pop into earth stating I am Son Of God there was blueprint that was  laid in the Old Testament  Jesus is a Jew Son Abraham In Genesis 17; 4-7, 15-17   “As for Me, My covenant is with you: you will become the father of many nations. 5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I will make you the father of many nations. 6 I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you. 7 I will keep My covenant  19, But God said, “No. Your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will name him Isaac. I will confirm My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his future offspring. Matthew was writing to Jews; it was important to identify Jesus in this way. Jesus fulfills the Abrahamic covenant (see Ge 12:2–3; 15:9–21; 17; Zec 9:10 Jesus became Man as a Jew, from the lineage of Abraham, the father of all Jew

Matthew’s opening words (“Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham”) had special importance to a Jewish audience, which traced its ancestry through the covenants God made with Israel. The heading, with Jesus’ names and his ancestry, is packed with meaning.

In John 7; 42 42 Doesn’t the Scripture say that the Messiah comes from David’s offspring and from the town of Bethlehem, where David once lived?” Jewish cultures recognize that Messiah would come from David’s offspring and from the town of Bethlehem. 

Matthew 21:9  Then the crowds that went ahead of Him and those who followed kept shouting: Hosanna to the Son of David!
He who comes in the name of the Lord is the blessed One!

Throughout Jesus Ministry in Matthew 15:22 And behold, ha Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, i “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon. And (Matthew 20:30

Romans 1:1-4  concerning His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord who was a descendant of David according to the flesh 

 2 Timothy 2:8 Keep your attention on Jesus Christ as risen from the dead and descended from David. This is according to my gospel. 

Revelation 22:16 I, Jesus, have sent My angel to attest these things to you for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright Morning Star.”

Throughout Jesus Ministry in several address Jesus as Son of David  Matthew 15:22 And behold, ha Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, i “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon. And (Matthew 20:30  And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David! Lastly, Jesus stated to the scribes and the Pharisee Mark 12:35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is then son of David?

 Jesus not so much the founder of a new religion, but the fulfillment of an existing religion 

   Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” He fulfills the Prophets by both being and carrying out what they foretold.

John MacArthur wrote,” Christ was indicating that He is the fulfillment of the law in all its aspects. He fulfilled the moral law by keeping it perfectly. He fulfilled the ceremonial law by being the embodiment of everything. The law’s types and symbols pointed to And He fulfilled the judicial law by personifying God’s perfect justice  12:18, 20. Meaning smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. For Jesus to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! He fulfill every aspect of the law   

In Luke 3; 38 Mary family tree it states the son of Seth, the son of Adam, 

The Son of Adam:The Hebrew word for “Adam ” is “man “. The title “Son of Man. Adam was created in God’s image and was perfected until he ate the forbidden fruit in Genesis 2; 16-17, And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will definitely die. In Genesis 3; 6-7  So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked. Adam and Eve died spiritually, but because God was merciful they did not die physically until later (5:5. Where a curse called sin put on them and effected mankind “So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 

 Romans 5:14 Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin in the likeness of Adam’s transgression. He is a prototype of the Coming One, or the second Adam 

1 Corinthians 15:45   So it is written: The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit. Meaning Erdman explains: As the descendants of Adam, we are made like him, living souls inhabiting mortal bodies, and bearing the image of an earthly parent. But, as the followers of Christ, we are yet to be clothed with immortal bodies and to bear the image of our heavenly. Christ needed be like mankind to take our sins 

As scripture declares to all who believe, since there is no distinction. Furthermore, it states Everyone who believes on Him will not be put to shame, for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, Since Adam, and Eve were created in God Image we need to respect our different cultures and the diversities in our cultures due religious hatred are raised in most religious levels, we do well to reflect that even in our diversity humanity is one and was created in God image. When Chris sacrifice Himself on the cross he took mankind sin and His Father wrath He atone purchased both the Jews and the Gentiles sins

NIV Application Commentary wrote ,”Jesus’ roots go back to Adam, the figure through whom all of us are connected to one another. In a day when ethnic diversity and hatred are raised to almost religious levels, we do well to reflect that even in our diversity humanity is one. In his provision for humanity, Jesus represents all of us. It is easy to let our nationality, race, or social status blind us to this fundamental truth. As human beings we not only share a planet, we share a relationship to each other. Transcending that is the fact that Jesus, as Son, offers an opportunity to any of us to share in God’s rich blessing.Jesus came to reconcile us to each other Eph. 2:11 – 22, and he is in a unique position to accomplish that goal. God’s plan of salvation indicates that he did not want to be a tribal god of only one people or of only one region. He came for everyone.” Another  is outlined in Galatians 4:4–5:  But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 

 Jesus is the Anointed One meaning Messiah/Christ

The Hebrew Jesus is Yeshua Joshua the Greek is ησος meaning

Yahweh saves” or “Yahweh is salvation His human name, as the incarnate, eternal Son of God Mt 1:21,25, see also Lk 1:31

C.S. Lewis in his book Mere Christianity writes the following: “I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him [Jesus Christ]: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that option open to us. He did not intend to.”

Messiah greek is Christos English is Christ Hebrew word mashiach  meaning anointed one  or chosen one.

Jesus Christ is regarded by Christians as fulfilling this promise and expectation. John 4:25, 26. Where Jesus revealed to the Samaritan Woman that he  is the Messiah to able to the Messiah He Servant of the Lo in Isaiah 42:1-4  states Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. 2He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. 3 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smouldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; 4he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.” 

Who is the Servant of the Lord in the Bible ? Got question define A servant is someone who carries out the will of another. The Servant of the Lord fulfills God’s will and is often presented in Scripture as someone chosen by God to hold a leadership position, to represent Him, and to accomplish a certain divine work. In the Bible, the term Servant of the Lord has been applied to individual people, certain groups of people, the nation of Israel, and the Messiah, who is identified as Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Jesus was that servant When God the Son came to earth, He took on the role of a servant. The Creator chose to serve His creatures. Jesus said that He had come “to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28)  even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Where in the book of Acts found four times (Acts 3:13, 26; 4:27, 30  also in Philippians 2:7–8  but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, 3 being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 

In Isaiah, 53:3 says about the Servant of the Lord, “He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.” Jesus was despised by the religious people of His day and rejected as their Messiah.

When God calls you a servant, you be honour. Call a servant should honour for example, the brother of Jesus stated James 1:1 James, a servant of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, or Jude  , a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James. Lastly (Revelation 1:1) The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God agave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John.

A Servant never fails to accomplish the will of the Lord and the purposes of God

As a human being, Jesus experienced all of the finite limitations that we experience as human people  Luke 2:7, 11 Even more, Jesus went through normal process of embryonic/fetal development. “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.” (Luke 1:31

“And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.” (Luke 1:56)

“‘Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us).” (Matthew 1:23)

Supernatural conception, but otherwise a normal process of embryonic/fetal development prior to birth

For example John 1:14 “The Word became flesh.”. He was born (Luke 2:7). He grew (Luke 2:40, 52). He grew tired (John 4:6) and got thirsty (John 19:28) and hungry (Matthew 4:2). He became physically weak (Matthew 4:11; Luke 23:26). He died (Luke 23:46). And he had a real human body after his resurrection (Luke 24:39; John 20:20, 27).

He grew weary and needed sleep Matthew 8:20  Jesus told him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.” He was hungry and Matthew 12;1 At that time Jesus passed through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick and eat some heads of grain. Mark 11;12 The next day when they came out from Bethany, He was hungry. 

Jesus clearly displayed all the human emotions. Here it begins to get a little more difficult for us. . He says in Matthew 26:38 that his “soul is very sorrowful, even to death.” In John 11:33–35, Jesus is “deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled,” and even weeps. John 12:27 says, “Now is my soul troubled,” and in John 13:21, he is “troubled in his spirit.” The author to the Hebrews writes that “Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears” (Hebrews 5:7). 

He grew weary and needed sleep Matthew 8:20  Jesus told him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.” He was hungry and Matthew 12;1 At that time Jesus passed through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick and eat some heads of grain. Mark 11;12 The next day when they came out from Bethany, He was hungry.In Mark13;32 “Now concerning that day or hour no one knows–neither the angels in heaven nor the Son–except the Father.

Jesus suffered and experienced physical death, Luke 23;46 Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit!’ And having said this he breathed his last.” 

Another reason Jesus had to be fully human is that God established the necessity of the shedding of blood for the remission of sins (Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22). Only a perfect human—Jesus Christ—could perfectly keep the law and perfectly fulfill the law, thereby redeeming us from that guilt.  

Humanity Christ Only as man can Jesus truly represent men to God. He understands our lives because He has lived it also. Because He understands, coming to Him we “obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need,”

 Lastly while on the cross He felt every human emotional physical pain imagine for example Jesus stated My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” All mankind and His Father fell upon Him>

 Believer Bible wrote The question is, “Why?” Why should the holy, sinless Son of God suffer the concentrated horror of eternal hell in those three long hours of darkness? Scripture gives us the answer. First of all, God is holy, righteous, and just, and this means that He must punish sin wherever He finds it. To wink at sin or to overlook it is impossible for God. That brings us to the second point. Although the Lord Jesus had no sins of His own, He took our sins upon Himself. He voluntarily assumed responsibility to pay the penalty of all our iniquities. The debt we owed was charged to His account, and He willingly became surety for it all. But now what can God do? All His righteous attributes demand that sin be punished. Yet here He looks down and sees His only begotten Son becoming the scapegoat for others. The Son of His love has become our Sin-bearer. What will God do when He sees our sins laid on His own beloved Son?

There was never any doubt as to what God would do! He deliberately unleashed all the fury of His righteous wrath on His own beloved Son. The fierce torrent of divine judgment broke upon the innocent Victim. For our sakes, Christ was forsaken by God so that we might never be forsaken.

Jesus Christ, the perfect Lamb of God, sacrificed His human life and shed His human blood to cover the sins of all who would ever believe in Him. If He were not human, this would have been impossible.   Jesus accomplished our redemption on the cross, exchanging our sin for His perfect righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21)

https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/jesus-is-fully-human 

The Creed of Chalcedon states Bible truly testifies Jesus both human and truly divine self and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.” We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly man, of a reasonable (rational) soul and body; con substantial (co essential) with the Father according to the Godhead, and consubstantial with us according to the Manhood; in all things like unto us, without sin; begotten before all ages of the Father according to the Godhead, and in these latter days, for us and for our salvation, born of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, according to the Manhood; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures, in confusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably; the distinction of natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather of the property of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not parted or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God, the Word the Lord Jesus Christ; as the prophets from the beginning (have declared) concerning him, and the Lord Jesus Christ himself has taught us, and the Creed of the holy Fathers has handed down to us. 

The question what is creed why is important to the church

 First is not scripture nor breath by Holy Spirit. A creed expresses what the church believes to be the truth of Sacred Scripture. An ecumenical creed expresses certain fundamental truths of Scripture that is held by most Christian churches throughout the world. Three of these ecumenical creeds–the Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, and Athanasian Creed–are cited in Article 9 of the Belgic Confession as statements of truth which “we do willingly receive.” These ancient creeds express basic truths regarding the doctrine of the Holy Trinity over against various errors that surfaced in the early history of The New Testament church.  

Creed of Chalcedony creed states We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly man. Appears to be a contradiction for example Jesus was tempted it also states Bible God cannot tempted, Jesus birth place was Bethlehem the Bible state God has no beginning no end God is all knowing yet Jesus prayed  all night before choosing the apostles scriptures that empty himself. Aristotle, Metaphysics wrote, “It is impossible that the same thing can at the same time both belong and not belong to the same object and in the same respect, and all other specificationthe incarnation not like this…Difficult to comprehend but not a real contradiction but paradox 

The term paradox is from the Greek word paradoxon, which means “contrary to expectations, existing belief, or perceived opinion. Or is a logically self-contradictory statement or a statement that runs contrary to one’s expectation. For example I love you and I don’t love you. John Lasagna will be a little late for the party.  He died yesterday. Or on the day accepted the Lord it was worst day life And best day in my life 

The humanity of Christ and God head and the Bible has many mysteries if try understand it you soon you’re doing Greek alphabet asking more question soon youi find yours quaguagmire.  At the of day a mystery will always be mystery,  and we need to remind ourselves Deuteronomy 29; 29 The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law. And continue peel onions one layer time. Remind ourselves Jesus very God very man the same perfect in Godhead also perfect in manhood 

John Calvin wrote which in itself is attended with considerable difficulty is rendered very perplexed and hence perilous by human curiosity, which cannot be restrained from wandering into forbidden paths and climbing to the clouds determined if it can that none of the secret things of God shall remain unexplored. When we see many, some of them in other respects not bad men, every where rushing into this audacity and wickedness, it is necessary to remind them of the course of duty in this matter. First, then, when they inquire into {fully man fully God} emphasis added  let them remember that they are penetrating into the recesses of the divine wisdom, where he who rushes forward securely and confidently, instead of satisfying his curiosity will enter in inextricable labyrinth. For it is not right that man should with impunity pry into things which the Lord has been pleased to conceal within himself, and scan that sublime eternal wisdom which it is his pleasure that we should not apprehend but adore, that therein also his perfections may appear. Those secrets of his will, which he has seen it meet to manifest, are revealed in his word—revealed in so far as he knew to be conducive to our interest and welfare

 Philippians 2:5-11  Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Note  but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form

The Greek word emptied is kenosis By becoming a man, Jesus Jesus did not lay aside his deity.  Charles C. Ryrie sheds light on this event: “Christ didn’t become any less God, but he chose not to use some of his divine attributes

 

 

 

NIV Study Bible Note made himself nothing. Or “emptied himself.” He did this, not by giving up deity, but by laying aside his glory (see Jn 17:5) and submitting to the humiliation of becoming a man (see 2Co 8:9 and note). Jesus is truly God and truly man.

John MacArthur wrote made himself nothing. Or “emptied himself.” He did this, not by giving up deity, but by laying aside his glory (see Jn 17:5) and submitting to the humiliation of becoming a man (see 2Co 8:9 and note). Jesus is truly God and truly man.

Reformed Bible Study He humbled Himself, relinquishing His heavenly status, not His divine being. The nature of His self-emptying is defined in three phrases that follow (“taking . . . being born . . . being foundThe Lord Jesus did not lay aside any of the attributes of God when He came into the world.

  • He was still omniscient (all-knowing).
  • He was still omnipresent (present in all places at one and the same time).
  • He was still omnipotent (all powerful).

What He did was to empty Himself of His positional equality with God and to veil the glory of Deity in a body of human flesh. The glory was all there, though hidden, but it did shine forth on occasions, such as on the Mount of Transfiguration. There was no moment in His life on earth when He did not possess all the attributes of God.

  1. Aside He threw His most divine array,
  2. And hid His Godhead in a veil of clay,
  3. And in that garb did wondrous love display,
  4. Restoring what He never took away. 

He emptied Himself by taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. In other words, He emptied Himself by taking upon Himself something He never had before—humanity. He did not lay aside His deity, only His place in heaven

While Jesus is fully man and fully God perfectly human and perfectly God, however there some believe left divine being. For example Kenotic who believe that the divinity of the Son of God was somehow lost or lessened when the Lord took on human flesh and entered our world. Another significant problem with kenotic Christology involves the eternal destiny of all who follow Christ. No mere human being can fulfill the role of Savior. If Jesus were not the infinite second Person of the triune God, His sacrifice would be insufficient. If Christ were not divine, if He had given up His divinity at any point in time, the efficacy of His sacrifice on the cross would be nullified. To be the Savior, Jesus was at every moment both fully God and fully man. 

Apollinarian was bishop of Laodicea in Syria about 361 he denied the full humanity and perfection of Jesus Christ. Jesus had a human body and soul, but Jesus’ mind was replaced by the Logos. He taught that sin resided in the spirit of man and if Jesus was both God and man, then he would have sinned. Apollinarianism was condemned by the Second General Council at Constantinople in 381 and virtually died out within the following decade.

Dr. Craig’s view, the Logos, by assuming flesh in the virginal conception in Mary’s womb, newly brings into being a new Christ’s human nature. In which would address fully divine and humanity of Christ

  Question why did Jesus Christ put on Human clothes and dwell among us? 

In 1 Timothy 2:5, it states For there is one God and one mediator between God and humanityjohn MacArthur wrote Only the perfect God-Man could bring God and man together. Cf. Job 9:32, 33.

Reformed Bible Study Paul’s focus is on Christ’s humanity, perhaps because the false teachers had denied that Christ was truly human. The full humanity of Christ is essential to His serving as Mediator of the covenant of grace.

Believe Bible commentary  Mediator between God and men. This being so, no man can come to God in any other way. A mediator is a go-between, a middleman who can stand between two and communicate with both. Through Christ, Himself Man, God is enabled to approach men with forgiveness of sins. Consequently, any poor sinner can approach Him and will by no means be rejected.

NIV Application Commentary  Old and New Testaments show the need for mediation between the holy God and sinful people. Jesus Christ is prophet, priest, and king. Especially in his priestly role, being both divine and human, and offering himself as the sacrifice, he is the only true Mediator.

Humanity Of Christ

1) Fulfill the Davidic Covenant (Luke 1:31-33).

 

2) Reveal the nature of true humanity.

 

3) Represent us in His obedience (Romans 5:18-19, 1 Corinthians 15:45, 47). This is Jesus’ “representative obedience.” Adam, as representative of humanity before God, fell. But Jesus, as representative of humanity before God, didn’t.

 

4) Serve as a substitute sacrifice for us (Hebrew4:16-17, Hebrews 10:1-10).

 

5) Sympathize with us in temptation, to be an approachable high priest for us (Hebrews 4:15-16).

 

6) Set an example for us of how to live (1 Peter 2:21, 1John 2:6).

 

Godhead of Christ

1) Reveals God to us (John 1:18, 14:9).

 

2) Bears the full penalty of sin for all humanity, which presumably is something only an infinite being could do.

 

3) Shows that salvation is  a gift of God, not an achievement of humans.

 

4) Is worthy of worship. The church has always worshipped Jesus, but only God is worthy of worship.

 

We ought also learn from history. Historically, I think groups denying the deity of Christ have drifted from orthodoxy. It’s important that Jesus was God, and crucial for our spiritual health that we don’t hedge on, but resolutely affirm, His full divinity.
