God Come in the Flesh!

The coming of Christ gave us a living picture of who God is. Christ’s coming put a face on God.

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible” (Colossians 1:15-16).

The incarnation — God came to earth wrapped in a human body. The God of heaven came to live among us that we might know what He is truly like. He came to teach us. He came to die for us that we might be forgiven. He rose from the dead to help us know that we too will be raised. He promised that He will return so that eternal hope would burn in our hearts. He opened the doors of heaven.

May you experience a new revelation of God this Christmas. May the eyes of your understanding be truly open to behold Him - the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords!

Merry Christmas to you all. Please click here for my e-card to you.

Jesus said that he and the Father are one but never that he was God and that all He did was because of the Father, for as the Father does, so does the Son

John 5:19 (Whole Chapter)
[ The Authority of the Son ] So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, [ John 5:30 ] the Son [John 16:13] can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father [Greek he] does, that the Son does likewise. 20For(T) the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And(U) greater works than these will he show him, so that(V) you may marvel. 21For as the Father(W) raises the dead and(X) gives them life, so(Y) also the Son gives life(Z) to whom he will. 22(AA) The Father judges no one, but(AB) has given all judgment to the Son, 23that all may honor the Son, just as they(AC) honor the Father.(AD) Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

John 5:26-27 (Whole Chapter)
26(AL) For as the Father has life in himself,(AM) so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27And he(AN) has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.

God did not come in the flesh, Jesus Christ the son of God did, The image and word of God.
