12/16/13 Innocent Lamb, Jewish Baby Jesus. Son of Man & God, Christ Messiah!
Everywhere you go, you see Happy Holidays and Season Greetings, you here it incessantly. Whos afraid to offend someone, since when are Gods blessings below acceptance level?
Jesus was the one who created all things and in all things He created they them! He existed before all of creation and sits at the Right hand of God. For the Messiah prophesied of in the Old Testament to occur, Our Lord, God’s Son had to enter the Human Bloodline, born to a woman, but still of God. Mary was a virgin, her pregnancy came from the hand of God directly! He who gives life and is aware of it before any other is. There is a place within the womb of creation that is observed by God before it is even known to any other.
The Messiah, promised to the Jewish Nation, surely did arrive, but not in the fashion or status quou of what (they as a people & culture were accustomed to) so, they rejected the idea that He would be born to poor people & placed in a manger. Yes, this little Baby, so despised & misunderstood had power coursing through his very veins, enough that John the Baptist, also a Baby (still in His mothers womb, lept for joy) essentially speaking, he began moving and stretching inside of her, in ecitement) His little spirit knew Jesus’ spirit & Our Lord, made His power known to both women! Oh there was such power & presence finally on this earth, so much so that the Evilest men of the day sought to kill every newborn, in order to prevent His impending birth! (Exodus 1:22)The signs of the Old Testament began unfolding & they knew He was most likely being born presently, even as they plotted! They tried, but they failed!
And then we have the Ultimate rejection, after all, He was the “sacrificial lamb” & the “Chief cornerstone, which the Builders Rejected”, Thats a direct Inference to the jewish Nation and the prodigal brats (all of us undeserving sinners, both gentile and jew). Despised, Rejected and slaughtered, The Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world and had the iniquities of ALL OF MAN KIND placed upon Him!…My heart bleeds with agony at the thought! So Yes, just as scripture illustrated, prohesied and foretold. He was crucified and hung on TREE, A wooden cross! He was beaten, thronged, abused, spat upon, crowned with thorns, pierced and crushed, No other gift in life can compare to the Gift Of HIS LIFE!
Our Loving Magnificent Father, sacrificed His own Son, so that all of us Might be saved, but definitely some of us will be saved. Isnt it just like Him that He awaits the conversion of the Jewish nation, that prodigal child that has rejected His Love, REJECTED HIS SON, the Messiah, the only hope for salvation! They might have rejected Him, but they Are and ALWAYS WILL be, the “Apple of His Eye”, anyone harming them must contend with God. It is our duty, as adopted children, as Christians, to stay obedient, pray for our Jewish Brothers and Sisters as well as all other still needing conversion & remember the Real Reason for this season &Truest meaning of CHRISTmas! Jesus Christ!
(this entire message is steeped in scriptural references)…Please take a momnet to review just a few, this whill help you gain a fuler understanding)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Melchizedek was a type for the Son of God – the divine part of Jesus Christ. Jesus had genealogy on His mother’s side, but not His Father’s, and was without beginning of days or end of life in that He was and is God.
Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, like the Son of God he remains a priest forever. (http://wbmoore.wordpress.com/2009/04/18/did-jesus-exist-before-time-is-jesus-god/)
Philippians 2:5-7 5
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the builders rejected Has become thechief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
1 Peter 2:6
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”
The next day John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
Hebrews 12:2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
“I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
2 Cor 13:14
14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
16 So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jews persecuted him. 17 Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.” 18 For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
- John 10:27-36, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. 29“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30“I and the Father are one.” 31The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” 34Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? 35“If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?”
Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”
