Compiled and Illustrated fromThe Scriptures & The Spirit of ProphecyApril 2014Presents And This is Life EternalPart 3
In part 2 of this study, we learned that The Son of GOD, Who was with GOD from the beginning, He was never subjected to death, because He, Who is Eternal Life was born of GOD, WHO is LIFE.Christ--The Son of GOD was not a partaker of darkness and death, because it is an intruder into The Kingdom of Light and Life. But because of mans separation from his Source of Light and Life in GOD, man fell into darkness and death by sin. And there appeared to be no hope for man to be restored to Light and Life with GOD, because darkness and death cannot exist with Light and Life. And Light cannot dwell with darkness, without destroying darkness.It was noted that all things were in subjection to GODS Son. But because of sin and death, it appeared that death was not yet in subjection to GODS Son.
In order to save man, He like Moses, veiled His Expressed glory of The Father, firstly in a Pillar of Cloud, to dwell with the children of Israel, and as Jesus, He was veiled in the form of flesh and blood, that He might be seen of men, and be received by men. Christ, Who is divine with His Father, He also was born again by veiling His divinity in the nature of humanity, that He might destroy the works of the adversary, and set men free by revealing to them The Truth of The Father, WHO reveals The Truth of HIS Word, Whom HE has sent. He--The Son of GOD in human flesh, Testified of The Only True GOD and of Himself, Whom The Father has sent in all ages, even unto the end of the world. But because many could not digest The Truth of His Own Witness of Himself, Who is Invisible to men, the popular belief of men have based their views on a doctrine that denies His atonement with humanity in the fullness of time, to place Him, as a Man in the form of flesh, from the days of eternity.
The Scriptures Testifies of Christ--The Word of GOD, and it reveals that He was with The Father from the beginning, and by Him, GOD--The Father made all things. It testifies throughout its pages of GOD working by HIS Word through His prophets, to prepare the way for The Son of GOD to fulfill The Promise of His coming, to dwell among men, which means that He was not yet of flesh and blood. John testified that He was in the world, which He created. He came to His Own, but they received Him not, because they did not know Him. But in the fullness of time, He became one with man, firstly as a man, and secondly, He partook and tasted death for every man. He did not remained in death. For He made death to be in subjection to Him by overcoming darkness and death, to rise again to Life and Light.As Christ Jesus overcame death, to give Eternal Life to those, who will receive Him, John testified of Him and said
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:12, 13).
Notice that all, who will receive Christ Jesus, He will gave to them His Power, to become the sons of God, even to those, who will believed on His name. They are called out of the world, to be given unto Him, as His children. These children are they that are born of The Seed of The Word of GOD. It was through His Testimony with Nicodemus, that Jesus revealed the need, to partake of His Spirit, to become the sons of God. John saidBut they are to be born againBut not of blood. Not of the will of the flesh. Not of the will of man. But of The Will of GOD.
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:1-5).
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit (John 3:6-8).
Notice that Nicodemus said to Jesus that we know that You are a Teacher come from GOD: for no man can do these miracles that You do, except GOD be with him. Like many of us, who are born into this world, to partake of flesh and blood, we must also be born of The Spirit, to see The Kingdom of GOD. But because many cannot see the Spiritual things of GOD, Paul said Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.Even though Nicodemus said they knew that Jesus came from GOD, he said.Jesus said to himHow can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which [vail] is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:14-18).
Notice that Christ--The Word of GOD is The Lord--That Holy Spirit, Who is The Expressed Glory of The LORD, WHO sent Him. He laid down His robe of Glory, to be born again, and partake also of the veil of flesh and blood, to become The Man Christ Jesus, Who is The Spirit of Life in the flesh of man. He said to Nicodemus that a man must be born again to see The Kingdom of GOD.Notice what was said to Mary about The Son of GOD, Who is Spirit, but also came down from heaven, to be born into this world, to be of flesh and blood. Luke wrote of the angels message to Mary and said,Except a man be born of water and of The Spirit, he cannot enter into The Kingdom of GOD.That, which is born of the flesh is flesh.Jesus saidThat, which is born of The SPIRIT is Spirit.
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Luke 1:30-35).
Notice that Mary conceived in her womb, and brought forth The Holy One, Whose Name is called JESUS. He--The Power of GOD, Who made all things, including man and woman, He gave to man, His Gift of Life. But after man was led to sin, He--The Son of GOD gave to man The Promise of The Seed, Who would come to save man from his sin. John testified of Him and said. He, being Great, He is called The Son of The Highest.Of His kingdom there will be no end.The Holy Ghost came to her, and He--The Power of The Highest did overshadow her to be born by her, to also become The Son of Man, Who had made a way to partake of the nature of flesh and blood.
He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him]. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:31-36).
Notice that He--The Word of GOD, Whom The Father has sent, He speaks The Words of GOD to men. But no man have seen and heard, or received His Testimony of The Father, Who sent Him.Notice that Jesus is Himself born of GOD. He is The Word of GOD, Who came down from heaven, and became flesh and blood, to Manifest, The Fathers Glory to men. It was He, Who revealed GODS Words to men through the prophets. Notice what this is revealing to us of Him.He that comes from above is above all.He that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth.It is saidHe that comes from heaven is above all. And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no man received His testimony.He that has received His Testimony has set to his seal that GOD is True.For He, Whom GOD has sent speaks the words of GOD: for GOD gives not The Spirit by measure unto Him.
Notice that The Son of GOD is The Word of GOD, Who is The Angel of HIS PRESENCE, Who was sent to speak HIS Will to the prophets. As The Son of GOD was clothed with The Expressed Glory of The Father, He could not dwell among men, who were in darkness to The Spiritual Things of GOD. To
