Let’s Learn about Jesus Christ; His humanity and His Divinity

Hello family this is pasta gideon if you are interested in the word of god you’re in the right place welcome to kfg know feed and grow on the world today we are going to do a little study on christ geologically it is known as christology is specifically the study of all things

Dealing with whom the person of christ is his divinity or godhood his humanity which has got a lot to do with his incarnation then his exaltation which has got to do with this resurrection and entrance some will include the works of christ which is also known as soteriology in theology

For the purpose of this discourse we shall only focus on his divinity and a bit of his exhortation also i have a video on trinity dealing with modalism so i will link it up up there or in the description or even at the end of the video so that if you want

To have a look at it you can go and look at it today’s focus is the divinity of the lord jesus but let me give you a summary of trinity trinity says there is one god and that one god exists eternally in three persons the father the son and the spirit

And each of the persons is god so the father is god the son is god and the spirit is god and together these three persons make up one god in perfect unity so in the christian concept of god jesus is god from eternity so someone asked me a question he said

If jesus is god and the same as the father why does the bible say that he is going to be exalted and everything is going to be put under his feet at the end of everything now let’s answer it the mistake in the question is that this person is thinking jesus is the

Same person as the father no jesus is not the father the father is not the spirit and the spirit is not the son these are three places that exist in their godhead each of them is fully god and yet they are one god in nature this is where man’s limitation in

Perceiving the concept of what comes in but that is why it is god it is a mystery to man man cannot oversimplify it or fully comprehend it now for more you can check the message on trinity that i’ve talked at the end of this video now to the divinity of jesus christ

Let’s look at the various names and tense and titles that is used to refer to the second person of the trinity the first one is christ now from an historic perspective christ is the term used specifically for the second person of the trinity when he became man and fulfilled the prophetic position of

The messiah in other words he was not a christ before incarnation christ is the transliteration from greek crystals to english christ after christ another name that is given to the second person of the trinity is the son of god it also refers to the specific time in

History when the second person of the trinity took on humanity both christ and the son of god refer to the same person in humanity and now continues on into eternity future because because it has now become parts of the natures of jesus christ if you got this you understand that the second

Person of the trinity was not always referred to as the christ or the son of god it was the incarnation that made it so when we say incarnation christianity it means that the second person of the trinity which is the word of god assumes human form in the person

Of jesus christ and he is fully divine and fully human now this is what you see in john chapter 1 1-3 when the bible says in the beginning was the word and the word was with god and the word was god it’s referring to the word of god that took on human nature

And became a man the bible said the same was in the beginning with god all things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made and the word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory the glory as of the only begotten of the

Father full of grace and truth now the only term that specifically refers to christ in eternity past is the word of god the word of god is the person that is also referred to as the second person of the godhead that is the attempt that applies from

Eternity it wasn’t given when he came to the earth in heaven he was known as the word of god in history there’s been a lot of debates regarding the matter of the son of god and even today that is the reason why we are doing this

Video there is a lot of contention about who jesus christ is in this discourse we will use the terms interchangeably the son of god christ jesus christ the word of god it refers to the same person now these contentions have gone on and on and on in three hundred and eighteen

Eighty there was an elder in alexandria called ariels he thought that christ was created by the father and thus he is human rather than god this was rejected by atanasius um and in three to five india the council of nicearianism was rejected but there’s been a lot of debates regarding

Jesus christ the passing hood of jesus christ the nature of jesus christ in church history and this led to a number of heresies some of the heresies or heretical views that came up concerning jesus christ were even named after the people that propounded them the first one is tritaism when you

Preach tritaism you are preaching trigons that is a heresy the next heresy is modalism or civilianism named after sibelius 217-220 a.d it says god is only one person who appears in different moves or rules this is what dr damina is preaching today if you don’t learn from history

You end up in the same churches as others fail now arianism we’ve talked about it arianism denies that jesus is fully god and he said that he has a created status and he’s below god then we have the citizen he says christ was fully god but only appeared to be human

So he was god he only appeared to be human wasn’t really human then we have nestorianism he said that they are not just two natures for christ but two persons then we have sabor the nationalism which is being preached by pastor ober subordinationism says that christ was essential in essence

Less than the father but not just functionally so he’s both essentially and functionally less than the father then we have monokianism he says jesus was only a power or influence from god then we have adoptionism adoptionism says jesus was a man who was adopted by god because of his powers

This is the final orthodox doctrinal position this is what is widely established from the word of god christ was hundred percent god while being hundred percent man he had all of his divine abilities but subjected them in human submission to their god head he had two natures and two wheels but

One person without confusion or full melding the divine nature and the human nature were not being confused or mingled together in a confused way now let’s deal with the divinity of christ as referred to us in scripture now the first point i want you to know is that

Christ is eternal this is technically different from saying he’s everlasting everlasting means that once something is brought into being it will never cease to exist but it cannot mean that something has always existed and would always exist it has no beginning or end revelation 21 verse 13 it says i am the

Alpha and the omega the first and the last the beginning and the end have you seen it colossians 176 and is before all the things he has no eternal beginning and eternal ended and in him all things hold together john 1 1 in the beginning

Was the word and the word was with god and the word was god he was in the beginning with god so if there is such a thing like a beginning he was there with god the second thing about the godhood of christ is that christ was active in creation

Colossians 150 says he is the image of the invisible god the firstborn of all creation for by him all things were created in heaven and on earth visible and invisible whether truths or dominions or rulers or authorities all things were created through him and for him

And he is before all things and in him all things hold together then john 1 3 says all things were made through him and without him was not anything made that was made he was active in creation now this is where some are saying it was through him that the father made all

Things so basically he was the channel through which creation came but he didn’t create anything listen the greek word in john 1 3 is dia and by the tear definition it means through referring to a place with in during by and by the means of now dia in king james

English has been translated over 228 times us by and 86 times as through and 95 times as four think about it so it’s it’s been translated more as bi than three or four the other thing you should know is that the reason is being translated more as

By is because by and through are synonymous in their certain range of meanings and without going deep into the contextual use of the ways it may confus you may confuse them when you say bye it may have two basic meanings a personal thing that causes something to happen or that causes something and

By can also mean through as in a means by which a thing happens for example hebrews 13 verse 11 the bible says for the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin are banned without the camp by here

By the high priest means the hype is actually that that bringing to the sanctuary do you get it he actually literally carries the animal to the sanctuary but in other usage it can also mean through like john chapter 10 verse one very very i see unto you he got entered not by the

Door into the sheep food but climb it up some other way they same is a teeth and a rubber so deer here by the door is through the door so you see by can be translated as by means of all through and it can also be translated as something that causes a

Thing to happen do you get it so to think that dire being using john 1 3 and john 10 can only mean through is erroneous if anything it shows that the second person of the trinity which is the word of god was active in creation

Now in colossians the word used is n in colossians 1 15 16 17 and is translated as in by or waste the problem is that many read the english bible thinking and is there exact equivalent in english in in english so anywhere you see and it should be in

Ua because you don’t understand that every word has a range of meanings and moving from one language to the other doesn’t mean the words correspond accordingly it is not like that it is not like that if you arrange i am a boy in english and translate it with corresponding greek

Words i for i am you may not get a valid sentence i hope you know that in greek e and n can be bi and that can also be by the context is what matters you learn this in ammunitics moving from one language to the other is

Not simply a word for word affair so learn that if you think that there’s an english and a greek weight equivalent it is not exactly like that let’s continue the third thing about the divinity of christ is that he also exercised divine authority to heal men and cast out demons like no other

The fourth thing is that he forgives him something that is the present of god christ also had a divine authority over nature i was telling water and when he was walking on water and christ also claimed to be god he said he was god in isaiah 42 verse 8 the bible said god

Said that he will give his glory to no one else yet jesus prayed in john 17 5. and now father glorify me in your own presence with the glory that i have with you before the world existed in exodus 3 14 god declares himself as jehovah when he says i am who

I am but when you come to john 8 58 crisis before abraham truly truly i said to you before abraham was i am he uses the words of god from the old testament now this resulted in the people picking up stones to true him but jesus hid himself

And went out of the temple they were ready to stone jesus for heresies you know why they recognized that christ was claiming to be god when he said before abraham was i am john 10 30. he said i and the father and one the jews picked up stones again to stone him

Jesus answered them i have shown you many good words from my father for which of them are you going to stone me the jews answered him it is not for a good way that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy because you being a man making yourself god so they

Understood when jesus said i am my father one he was making himself god do you get it now eight christ was the embodiment of the entire godhead in colossians it is recorded clearly for us 9 scripture refers to god and christ are the same person 10 their disciples

The apostles they recognized him as god john chapter 20 verse 28 thomas answered my lord and my god the disciples called he says they are gods they knew his claims and his actions confirmed that he was god romans 8 5 to them belonged their preachers and from their race according

To the flesh is christ who is god over all blessed forever amen paul clearly knew that christ was god titus 2 11 for the grace of god has appeared bringing salvation for all people training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled upright and godly

Life in the present age look at 13 waiting for our blessed hope the appearing of the glory of our great god and savior jesus so jesus is the great god that is going to be appearing 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify

Himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works so it is clear that christ is god the apostles knew they called him god he himself called himself and he claimed to be god and he did things like forgiveness and healing the sick and

Doing so many things that you cannot but think that this person is god why does he jesus christ being god still subordinate to the father equal and yet subordinates why is it like that it is because there is a divine order in the godhead divine order in the godhead

And it is led by the father so though all three persons of the godhead are of the same essence that is talking about their character and their quality in their interpersonal relationship the father is the head none of the persons is less than any in character or attribute but in roles and

Functions the father is heard and the son and the spirit placed subordinate rules to the father that is what you learn in their godhead as you study the scriptures if you say they are less than the father apart from their rules you are straining to one or more of the heresies we have

Mentioned earlier and it is contrary to scripture and if you should ask why should jesus be exalted at the end of everything and all his enemies kept under his feet and now he will be subject to the father it is because he took on actual human form and so was

Hundred percent goal and hundred percent man now this is not a gimmick it was real humility humbling oneself to be a man subject to all the freeties and weaknesses of men and yet was expected to obey god fully as the god man he had two natures

The god nature and the man nature and while on earth he was to humble himself to live as a man to fulfill all of the father’s dream which was leading to the saving of man now as a result he jesus christ was subject to things like bodily fatigue john chapter 4 verse

6 jesus christ was subject to their need for sleep matthew chapter 8 verse 24 jesus christ was subject to hunger he got angry jesus christ was subject to test john 19 28 jesus christ was subject to physical suffering and pain luke 22 44. jesus christ in his body life was

Capable of death first corinthians 15 yesterday now even had intellectual limitations jesus christ as a man was capable of increasing in knowledge luke chapter 2 verse 52 in his godhood which he had all together but subjected to his humanity so refused to put it into work he wouldn’t get angry wouldn’t get

Tested wouldn’t suffer he wouldn’t be able to die but as a man which is one of his nature now which is a part of him he could go through all of these weaknesses and phrases that all of us go through he was even capable of obtaining knowledge by observation

Mark chapter 11 verse 30 he looked and observed the tree now jesus christ was even capable of being restricted in knowledge mark chapter 13 verse 22 in fact he had more limitations living as a man not as god he even had spiritual limitations he was dependent upon prayer for power

If he was living as a man he didn’t need to pray to have power christ was dependent for power upon the anointing of the spirit acts after 10 38. all these were not necessary if he was just to live in his divinity do you get it philippians chapter 2 6-11 says who

Being in the form of god taught it not robbery to be equal with god but made himself of no reputation abuse so he he in his godhood subjected his god to his human nature and took upon him the form of a server and was made in the likeness of men

And being found in fashion as a man he humbled himself and became obedient unto death even the dead of the cross if he was walking in his divinity he wouldn’t be able to die wherefore god also has highly exhausted him and giving him a name which is above every name so you

See this in working in human nature he was subject to all the things that we are subject to and he could have gone astray but he didn’t bible says he was tempted in all points like we are yet he did not sin therefore he has been exhorted because

He has been there one man who has pleased the father in everything wherefore god also has highly exalted him and giving a name which is above every name that at the name of jesus every knee shall bow of peace in heaven this in earth and things under the earth

Hallelujah and that every tongue should confess that jesus christ is lord to the glory of god the father hallelujah do you get it i hope this makes a lot of sense to you so today jesus is the god man so today jesus is the god man

Exalted as god alone he already was the exhorted one but as the god man taking the human nature identifying with man he’s exhausted by going through all the rudiments that men go
