Who is Christ?

Colossians 2:8-9  Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ; For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,

Colossians 1:19  For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell

Anyone ever wonder who Christ is?  Surely the world is full of inquiring minds. I still ask myself this question, Who is he?  If you’ve ever been to a big city you realize that it takes time to do some sightseeing.  You can’t see everything in one day.  It is the same with the Lord.  We need to go on a sightseeing tour to discover all the aspects of our wonderful Christ!  First he is the embodiment of the Triune God.   That simply means that in his being he embodies God the Father, Son, and Spirit.  God dwells in him bodily.  This refers to his incarnation.  God now dwells within a human being, Christ.  So when you see Christ you see the Triune God.  When you receive Christ you receive the whole Triune God!  Wow.

How is God revealed?

Matthew 11:27   All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one fully knows the Son except the Father; neither does anyone fully know the Father except the Son and him to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

Matthew 16:16-17   And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.  And Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in the heavens.

 

Most people would agree that God is mysterious.  Yet he doesn’t want to remain a mystery to us.  He wants to be made known.  But how would you suppose that God is made known?  Well, the answer is quite simple.  He reveals himself.  The answer is simple yet profound.  Why?  Because our God is Triune!  That means he is three and one at the same time (search earlier posts or tune in for more details).   He is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  You cannot know the Son of God unless the Father reveals him to you.  neither can you know the Father unless the Son reveals him to you.  Awesome huh?  Awesome indeed!  Tune in for more to come….

Splendid Salvation

1 Peter 1:2 Chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father in the sanctification of the Spirit unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

Ephesians 1:4 Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blemish before Him in love,

 

We were chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, and this was unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.   This is the operation of the Divine Trinity to  bring us into his full salvation.  Have you ever realized that your salvation is carried out, applied by the Trinity?  What kind of God do you have?  Well, the bible definitely reveals that God is triune.  Which means that he is one and three at the same time!  Lol! We were selected by the Father, but this selection is carried out, applied by the Spirit coming to sanctify us.  To separate us unto God from everything else.  This result of this sanctifying is that we repent, believe into Christ and his redemption.  This is the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ God the Son.  So you have all three involved in bringing sinners into his full salvation. Splendid!

The Triune God according the Book of Matthew

Matthew 3:16 And having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming upon Him.

17 And behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have found My delight.

Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

There are not three separate Gods!  But one mysterious God who has revealed himself in the bible.  When Jesus was baptized the Spirit came upon him as a dove and the Father spoke from the heavens.  So you have the Son in the water, the Spirit descending, and the Father speaking from the heavens.  This can be quite confusing to the natural mind.  But we have to see the revelation of God from the entire scripture and not understand any one passage in isolation.  Matthew 28:19 tells us that after the Lord was crucified and resurrected he appeared to his disciples and gave them a wonderful commission to disciple the nations, baptizing them into the name (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit!  Here there is only one name for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit denoting his true nature of oneness!  However, to God there are three aspects to his person which is not so easy for us to understand.  Having said that, he still has only one name signifying person.  A person’s name is the person himself.  If I say your name, hey Ryan, I’m talking to you because that’s who you are.  So to baptize the nations into this name is to baptize them into the person of the Triune God!  Into a marvelous mysterious union with God himself!  How awesome is that!

We Need Much Revelation Concerning the Son of God

Matthew 16:13 Now when Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Who do men say that the Son of Man is?

14 And they said, Some, John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.

15 He said to them, But you, who do you say that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in the heavens.

 

Matthew 11:26 Yes, Father, for thus it has been well-pleasing in Your sight.

27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one fully knows the Son except the Father; neither does anyone fully know the Father except the Son and him to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

 

Galatians 1:15  But when it pleased God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,

16 To reveal His Son in me that I might announce Him as the gospel among the Gentiles, immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood,

 

We need much revelation from the Father to see, enjoy, and fully appreciate the Son of God!  We must pray, Father reveal your Son in me today!

Christ is the Spirit Today

John 20:22 And when He had said this, He breathed into them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul”; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:17 And the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

 

After the Lord Jesus Christ was crucified he rose from the dead.  And in resurrection he became what the bible calls the Life-giving Spirit.
