Yes, He was the carpenter’s son and yet the Son of the Most High God. He identified with humanity in spite of His divinity. He was fully human and yet fully God. What a mystery of mysteries!
He was down to earth, although equal with god the Father, humbled Himself and took upon him a body left His seat in glory and came down. Who will go for us and He gladly responded,” Here I am, send Me” That is why we must have this same mind that He had. He said learn of me for I am meek and lowly hearted.. Take my yoke upon you. My yoke is easy and my burden is light. That was why he washed the disciples’ feet, giving them examples to follow. He associated with the despised of society, like the tax collectors and the prostitutes.(Phl2:5-10, Matt11:28-30)
Jesus Christ was righteousness personified. There was no unrighteousness in Him. “For he hath made him to be sin for us; who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2Cor5:21)
He is invincible, unconquerable, indomitable, has supreme all-pervading power. He speaks and it is done, commands and it comes into being. He has a name above very other name.(Phil2:5-10) There is no other name given among men, under heaven through which we can be saved. (Acts4:12) He is the Great I Am, Who is and Who is to come.(John8:58)
He is the Saviour of the World. He came to save us from our sins. He did it on the cross when the Father laid our sins on Him. We crucified Him. Our sins took Him to the cross. It was the only way to atone for our sin. It was the only way to bring about the “atonement” between us and God. And now as many as receive Him, He gives the power, the authority to become a child of God. What a glorious privilege!
They thought they had won when He was crucified. Satan thought He was finished. Little did they know they were playing into the hand of God, the Father. And when the righteous demands of a just God were satisfied, God raised Jesus from the dead.. He did not allow His Holy One to see decay. He dispatched an angel to roll away the stone, like Jesus commanded at the grave of Lazarus, “Roll way the stone!” And Jesus came forth. Lift up your heads, O ye gates and let the King of Glory come in. Ps.24
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, High and mighty, He is the king of glory. The Lord, mighty in battle.. (Ps24)
He said, 'Behold I am He that was dead but now I am a live and alive for evermore and I hold the keys of death and hades.' (Rev.1:18): 'Grave, where is your victory? Death where is your sting. He swallowed up death in victory? (1Cor15:53-57)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
