AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH

“AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US” (JOHN 1:14).

  • SOME UNBELIEVERS ARE SAYING  THAT CHRIST COULD NOT HAVE POSSESSED A BODY OF FLESH, BECAUSE  FLESH IS  EVIL
  • ACCORDING TO APOSTLE JOHN ,THIS CONCEPT  COMES FROM THE  SPIRIT OF THE ANTI-CHRIST 1 JOHN 4:2- 3.
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT REVEALS THAT JESUS WAS MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

1 )  HE BECAME FLESH SO THAT MEN MIGHT SEE GOD  IN VISIBLE FORM.

  • JOHN 1:18. SAYS THAT CHRIST CAME TO “DECLARE” THE GLORY OF THE FATHER
  • TO KNOW THE LORD IS  TO UNDERSTAND  SOMETHING OF THE NATURE OF HIS HEAVENLY FATHER JOHN 14:9.
  • JESUS SAYS I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE .JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER
  • HE SAYS IN JOHN 14 :6 NO ONE GOES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME
  • NO ONE CAN CLAIM TO KNOW THE FATHER IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE SON

 1 JOHN 2 :22-27

  • DON’T ALLOW PEOPLE TO SEDUCE YOU WITH ALL KINDS OF FALSE DOCTRINE CONCERNING CHRIST,THE LORD IS AT HAND 2 JOHN ;7-11
  • JESUS CHRIST BECAME FLESH TO IDENTIFY WITH US AND TO BETTER REPRESENT US TO GOD THE FATHER HEBREWS 5:1-2
  • HAVING LIVED IN HUMAN FORM, HE WAS SUBJECTED TO TEMPTATION LIKE US AND YET  WITHOUT SIN HEBREWS 4:15,
  • HE WAS MANIFESTED AS MAN TO SHOW US THAT WE CAN LIVE IN THIS WORLD AND PLEASE THE FATHER
  • HE CAME AS OUR EXAMPLE, OUR MODEL FOR LIVING ONLY FOR GOD THE FATHER 1 PETER 2:21; 1 JOHN 2:6.
  • BELOVED PEOPLE OF GOD ,CHRIST CAME IN FLESH TO DIE AND RISE AGAIN AND TO DESTROY ALL THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL
  • THEREFORE HE IS QUALIFIED TO PUT AWAY SINS  1 JOHN 3:5-8
  • HE IS ABLE TO EFFECTIVELY FUNCTION AS OUR HIGH PRIEST,
  • HE IS ABLE TO COME TO OUR AID WHENEVER WE ARE TEMPTED HEBREWS 2:17, 18.
  • CHRIST BECAME FLESH SO THAT HE MIGHT BE SUBJECTED TO DEATH
  • IN OTHER WORDS HE CAME AS FLESH AND BLOOD JUST SO HE COULD DIE FOR OUR SINS AND OVERCOME HELL AND DEATH HEBREWS 2:9, 14
  • 1 TIMOTHY 6:16 SAYS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM, AS A SPIRIT BEING, TO DIE
  • THE LORD WAS MANIFESTED THAT “HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL ESPECIALLY  HELL AND DEATH REV 1:18
  • DEATH IS THE LAST ENEMY THAT MUST BE CONQUERED 1 C0R 15:26
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS? IT MEANS THAT WHEN DEATH SHOWS UP YOU MUST BE IN CHRIST
  • YOU MUST REMAIN IN HIM NOW SO YOU CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE
  • HE THAT BELIVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT SEE DEATH JOHN 5:24
  • YOU MUST ALSO REMAIN ABSOLUTELY OBEDIENT TO HIM HEB 7:23-25
  • JESUS WAS MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH, AND “PUT TO DEATH IN THE FLESH” BY HIS ENEMIES
  • IN 1 PETER 3:18 THE APOSTLE STATES THAT JESUS “WAS PUT TO DEATH IN THE FLESH, BUT MADE ALIVE IN THE SPIRIT
  • GOD ALMIGHTY VINDICATED THE LORD BY RAISING HIM FROM THE DEAD.
  • GOD THE FATHER VINDICATED HIM AND THUS “DECLARED JESUS CHRIST  TO BE THE SON OF GOD WITH POWER,
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WENT INTO POWERFUL OPERATION IN ORDER TO RAISE JESUS CHRIST  FROM THE DEAD .
  • IN ROMANS 8:11 PAUL WROTE: “BUT IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU, HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST JESUS FROM THE DEAD SHALL GIVE LIFE ALSO TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES THROUGH HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLS IN YOU.”
  • THIS SCRIPTURE CONFIRMS  THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS THE AGENT OF THE FATHER IN RAISING CHRIST FROM THE DEAD AND THAT HE WILL  ALSO RAISE OUR BODIES FROM THE DEAD
  • THE MIRACLES, MESSAGE, LOVE AND THE POWER GENERALLY MANIFESTED BY THE LORD  ON EARTH AS WELL AS   HIS RESURRECTION, DEMONSTRATED THAT HE IS GOD
  • THEREFORE IN SPITE OF HIS DEATH AT THE HANDS OF CRUEL MEN, THE SAVIOR WAS VINDICATED.
  • .AND FOR US WHO BELIEVE IN HIM DEATH WILL NOT HAVE THE FINAL SAY OVER OUR LIVES 1 COR,15:54-58
