WHO ARE THE GOD-MEN?

WHO ARE THE GOD-MEN?

(Jesus Christ, The Son Of God, Is God In Human Flesh)

TO THE BIBLE Romans 8:14

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons
of God.”

LET’S TALK

A friendly conversation ensued between the Care Group leader
and his members as they sat down to lunch together.

“Who do you reckon is the best superhero in the world?”
Erik, the Care Group leader, started. “That’s easy: it’s Ironman or Superman,”
Adrian said. “No, it’s Wonder woman,” Leona replied. When Erik was asked his
own response to the question, he simply said, “It’s the Lord Jesus, because all
the ones you’ve mentioned are fictional, but Jesus Christ, the Son of the
living God, the God-man is real!”

The expression “sons of God” isn’t a description of parental
or ancestral relationship. For example, when we say, “Jesus Christ is the Son
of God,” what that means is that Jesus Christ is the “God-man.” That’s why when
Jesus told the Jews He’s the Son of God, they wanted to stone Him to death. They
understood what He meant; He said, “I’m the God-man,” which means “God in human
flesh.”

The Jews knew what He meant because they said, “How can you,
a man, make yourself equal with God?” for that, they were ready to kill him
because, in their religious minds, that was blasphemy. They understood He
wasn’t just talking about his birth parents, for they already knew Mary was his
mother and assumed Joseph was his father. Jesus became the ‘firstborn’ of the
Father when He was raised from the dead, and the Father said to Him, “…You are
My Son, today I have begotten You” (Acts 13:32,33; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews
1:5, 6).

That’s why the Bible says that Jesus heads up the new
creation. He’s called the “first” and not the “only” begotten from the dead
because of the rest of us! When He died on the cross, He was our
representative; we all died in Him. When God raised Him up, we were raised in
Him. Thus, in Christ, you’re the god-man. Psalm 82:6 says, “I said, “You are
gods, and all of you are children of the Most High.”” This was a prophetic
language because we’re born of the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead.
Hallelujah!

Pray

Dear Father, thank you for the consistent education and
training of my spirit through your Word. By the power of the Holy Spirit at
work in me, I take my place, and fulfil my ministry as the god-man in my world,
and I declare that only the righteousness of God prevails in my environment, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
