Full Text of This Product

"His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

 

Our Lord Jesus Christ

The Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is beyond the comprehension of the human mind. He Himself said, "No man knoweth the Son but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him." Matthew 11:27. The Son has revealed the Father, but NO MAN knows the Son. His Person is a divine mystery.

He was David's son as born in Bethlehem, but He was at the same time David's Lord in the glory of His Person (Matthew 22:41-46).

Though equal with God, He took the place of a servant—wondrous grace (Philippians 2:6-7)! He took a life capable of death, though not subject to death (Hebrews 2:9). No man took His life from Him (John 10:18). He had the power to give life (John 10:28). In His blessed manhood He was at the same time "over all, God blessed forever. Amen." Romans 9:5. "In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9.

He is addressed by the Father as God: "Unto the Son He saith, Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever." Hebrews 1:8.

 

THE GODHEAD

Every activity of the Godhead is always in Trinity. The first time the name of God is mentioned in the Bible the Hebrew word used is God in the plural. In the Hebrew language there is singular, dual, and plural.

The Hebrew word for God in the plural is Elohim. This is the word used in Genesis 1:1. The Hebrew word for God in the dual is Elohaim. It is never used in the Scripture. The Hebrew word for God in the singular is Eloah. The first time this is used is in Deuteronomy 32:15-17 where He is contrasted with idols.

The order in Scripture is always; God the Father in purpose; the Son, the One who carries out the purposes of God the Father, and the Holy Spirit the power by which they are fulfilled. This truth runs all through the Word of God.

 

CREATION

It was the purpose of God the Father that creation would be the sphere for the display of all His counsels (Ephesians 1:9, 10).

The Son is the One by whom all is created and upheld (John 1:1-4; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:1-3).

The Holy Spirit is the power in creation (Job 26:13; Psalm 104:30).

 

REDEMPTION

God the Father in His love purposed the blessing of man (John 3:16). "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself." 2 Corinthians 5:19.

Christ in the obedience of love accomplished the work of redemption (Hebrews 10:7-10).

He (Christ) "through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God." Hebrews 9:14.

 

RESURRECTION

God the Father raised Christ from the dead (Acts 3:15).

Christ, the Son, raised Himself from the dead (John 10:18).

The Holy Spirit raised Christ from the dead (Romans 8:11; 1 Peter 3:18).

 

GOD, THE SON

As man, He could be hungry, thirsty and weary, that He might be a sympathetic High Priest.

As God He could still the winds and the waves. He could raise the dead. He could open His disciples' understanding. He could and did communicate power. He knew the thoughts of those about Him. He could and did foretell the manner of His death.

He is the ETERNAL I AM (John 8:58).

To deny the full Godhead glory of the Lord Jesus Christ is to turn one's back on the ONLY Savior. Those who do so will die in their sins (John 8:24). The Scripture says, "None … can by any means redeem his brother or give to God a ransom for him," Psalm 49:7; but the Lord Jesus was perfect God AND perfect man as He walked here on earth. It is His Person (God the Son) that gives value to the work of atonement He accomplished when lifted up on the cross (John 3:14). Thus we see that in order to have the knowledge of salvation as in John 3:16, one must believe in the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. … 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 3:16 & 36.

Thou art the everlasting Word,
The Father's only Son;
God manifest, God seen and heard,
The heaven's beloved One;
Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.

In Thee most perfectly expressed,
The Father's self doth shine;
Fullness of Godhead, too: the Blest,
Eternally divine.
Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.

Image of the Infinite Unseen,
Whose being none can know;
Brightness of light no eye hath seen,
God's love revealed below.
Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.

J. Conder
