Who Jesus Is (2)-Edem Odiong


WHO JESUS IS (2)

THE INCARNATE

Jesus is the only incarnate one.

Jn1:1,14a;-

“In the begining was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us,……..”.KJV.

Incarnation is the unity of Deity (God) and humanity (flesh) in one individual.

Satanic religions deny the incarnation of Jesus. In its place they propagate reincarnation, that is the theory of endless cycle of rebirth. This is the same lie at Eden Gen3:4,5.

 

Incarnation of Jesus Christ,  was to provide a substitute of God and humanity united, so that the incarnate one can stand as man’s mediator, 1Tim2:5, being equally God and equally man.

Phlp2:5,6;-

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.

Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped” NIV.

 

Being Deity and human, He could assume the obligation of man’s sin and bridge the divide between God and man.

Eph2:13,14,16;-

“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

For He is our peace, who hath made both one and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.

And that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby” KJV.

 

Man needed the incarnation, a mediator between him and God, because he lost his to approach God as Father, and no other human had the perfect quality to restore that relationship.

Rom3:23;-

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”.KJV.

 

Jesus Christ, as the incarnate one, fulfilled the role of the mediator.

Now by Jesus humanity can relate with God again and approach Him as Father to meet our needs.

 

Is’nt it touching to have such a loving God and Father who makes provisions for us even when we have failed Him?

Do you think you failed Him and as such has distanced yourself from Him?

 

Please come back, our Father’s loving arms are wide open to receive you, for in Christ the provision was made for the recovery of sinners and failures.

When you have Jesus Christ, the incarnate one you are more than conquerors.

 

God bless you, and may He grant you a fruitful working week.
