JESUS THE CHRIST (1)

Jesus the Christ is both a man and of Deity. Isaiah 9:6 captures the true nature of HIM as it reads in part, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder…” His name or rather titles testifies to the dualism of this One, the most enigmatic Personage to tread upon the surface of the earth. The word child in Isaiah is yeled while son is ben.

Yeled (yeh’-led): something born, i.e. a lad or offspring (it comes from yalad (yaw-lad’) to bear young). Ben (bane) means: ‘a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition’. As a child, born of a woman, His mother called Him Jesus. Jesus is the Anglicized name for the Hebrew Yhowshuwa or Yehoshua, which is the same as Joshua. He was not the first to bear this name. The second Jewish leader, who actually marched them into God’s promised Canaan, was called Yehoshua, who was originally called Oshea in Numbers 13:8. Joshua’s emergence typifies the phasing out of Mosaic legalism to make way for the liberty brought in by the expected Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen! Yhowshuwa (yeh-ho-shoo’-ah) (or Yhowshua {yeh-ho-shoo’-ah}) means: Jehovah-saved.

As a child He began His life from the womb of the virgin Mary. This is His humanity. He is shrouded in the man called Yehoshua, the name given Him as a partaker of the human race. Jesus is the toga He wore to manifest in our world, to carry out the Messianic mission to salvage the citizens of heaven. He grew up like any other being of the stock of the earth. Without the flesh of man He would not have been authorized to lead mankind out of the sinful nature. As Jesus went through conception, gestation and an eventual parturition He partook of flesh.

The Son is given, not born. The Son is eternal, hence cannot be conceived. Is it from eternity past or from eternity to come will any conceive the eternal One? The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was” (Proverbs 8:22, 23). The language here, in Proverbs, is of a picture of two people growing up together. We know that God did not go through an evolutionary development, therefore the Son or Christ is eternal as verse 23 informs us. Inside the child conceived in Mary’s womb was the Eternal One: the greatest miracle, in that, God became a man! This is the Incarnation.

The Incarnation teaches the doctrine of the hypostatic union. The first time I heard this from the tutoring lips of Reverend Chris Okotie, I went “Wow!” Hypostatic union means that Jesus Christ was one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man. Incredulous! Ponderous! Only God can perfect such a feat. Amen. I know that every scientific composition will end up with 60%:40%; 85%:15%; 99%:1% each adding up to 100% and never coming to less than or more than 100%. This spiritual composition is a bewilderment to science.

The Incarnation of the LORD God

Science cannot explain God. It is too weak and bankrupt of knowledge seek out God. Science is merely a utility in creationism, employed to aid workability. It is, itself, lifeless. Did science create or discover homosexuality? No, it was borne out of man’s thinking capability. Did science teach perverts the act of being pedophiliac? Man’s mind strayed therein. Science had always developed armaments since the antediluvian age, but do we not know that the onus of its success lies in the hand of the wielder of the weapon, all these millennia? The wielder’s mastery comes from within the warrior. Man’s mastery over circumstances is engendered by one of two forces: good (God) or evil (Devil). Any religion that do not accept the Lordship of Jesus is founded on a tampered mind fueled by the darkened wisdom of Lucifer, the Devil. Lucifer is a destroyer, hence, his hatred for the Truth, Way and Life (Jesus), and has done all the brainwashing to veer man off the righteousness of God. This is why too many people do not believe in the Truth. It is not science that alienates man from God, it is the devil, the fallen Lucifer.

God, the Good Force, gave David victory over a foremost war veteran, Goliath. Juxtapose Solomon’s wisdom side by side that of Socrates together with the host of Greek philosophers and what hits your sight and judgment is the fact that while Solomon displayed pure unrivalled wisdom, Socratic stand is so speculative and leaves you sometimes more confused. Samson demonstrated a sheer uncanny strength, the Greek Hercules did but does a truly documented history agree with it? People believe fairy tale fallacies so readily but not the truth of the Divinity. (…to be concluded…)
