In the realm of diverse religions around the globe Christians have a profound truth that no other religion in the world can proclaim. “God sent His own son“…and records of the Bible prove such Truth with great magnitude.
For instance, the prophetic virgin birth of Christ (in the Old Testment records) gives profound evidence and proves such Biblical Truth in the highest degree. The father brought His “first” and “only begotten son” into the world. The virgin Mary “who knew no man before” conceived and brought forth this child of God. His name was called “Jesus”. No other religion anywhere in the world can offer such a profound Bibical Truth that is written.
Some religions however; do not recognize the fact that Jesus was God’s Son (Jews included). Some religions do not recognize the fact that through the Son…God promised to “bruise” the authority of Satan in Gen. 3:15. Bruising simply implies and gives credit to the fact that Jesus the Son of God has “all authority” and makes God’s enemies (sin, the flesh, and the Devil) His own footsool. The Apostle John (1 John 3:8) confirmed this great promise of the Son by saying, “He that committeth sin is of the Devil, for this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the Devil”. The Son of God was manifested in human form. The Son of God is now manifested in the Spirit from His exalted position in Heaven. Why? To make the sin of man His footstool according to the promise of God. Christ delivers men from sin.
In the sonship of Christ we have the the second person of the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost) descending from Heaven. In this miraculous descension you have Christ the seed of the Father being placed in the womb of the Virgin Mary, thus being conceived into human form, and thus coming forth as the son of God (who some term as the incarnation). After the birth of Christ as the eight days according to the Law of Moses were accomplished, Mary had Jesus circumcised. Mary thus raised Jesus under the Law of Moses and by the Spirit of God Jesus at the age of 12 went into the Temple and observed the teaching (Luke 2:27). In this earthly descension of the Son of God you had a heavenly Christ “who stepped down to humanity” from His heavenly position. God’s Son thus became a mere man according to promise. Jesus, the Son of God was born in a manger in Bethlehem according to prophecy in Micah 5:2. Scriptures teach us Jesus was “begotten of God” and had the Holy Spirit from birth “without measure”.
John 3:34…For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
At the Baptism of John when Jesus (at the age of 30 years according to Mosaic Law) was annointed to be a High Priest… The Father audibly spoke from Heaven, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”… God called Jesus His Son.
At the end of the presentation of the Kingdom message to Israel, when Jesus was 33 years of age the Kingdom message changed to a message of his suffering, death, and resurrection. Jesus charged the disciples that they would tell no man of such change… Matthew 16:20. In Matthew 17:1-7…Jesus was “transfigured” on the Mount as He gave the disciples a glimpse of His “glorified body” that would happen in the resurrection. God audibly spoke again, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”. Biblical Records confirm the truth of God’s audible voice concerning His dear Son, Jesus.
This evidence of the Christian Bible clearly proves that God sent His Son down from Heaven. As a matter of fact… The Bible calls Jesus the “only begotten of God” or the “firstborn from the dead”. Both terms simply imply… the Son God. Records of the Bible clearly state that…God never spoke such truth to the angels… but He did speak to His Son. Psalm 45.
Hebrews 1:5-9…For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness isthe sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God,
The Son of God was prophesied in the book Psalms…
Psalm 2:7…I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee
The Jewish religious body proclaims the above prophecy is speaking of King David only but they run into a big snag with Psalm 110:1 which states, “The Lord said unto my Lord”… Here’s why. The Jews tried to trick Jesus with their evil heart of rejection. In return Jesus challenged these rejectors of truth by asking, “If the Psalms speak of King David, then who was David speaking of in Psalm 110 when He declared, “the Lord said unto my Lord sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footsool”. Not one single Jew could respond to the truth of Prophecy.
The Scriptures are clear that Jesus was God’s Son. Even Jesus himself…agreed to being the Son God when questioned by the High Priest of the Sanhedrin…
Mark 15:61-62…art thou the Christ, the son of the blessed? Jesus said, “I am”.
In the big scope of things…Jesus was the Son of God and the Bible proves such truth. As a Christian your faith is built on and comes from what God said about the promised Messiah…Jesus the Christ. No other religion in the world can offer such concrete evidence of “love for fallen man” that Jesus the Son of God… was and is the Savior of the world.
1 John 4:9,10…In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Hosanna! Glory to God in the highest! Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord!
