God the Son
Matt 21: 37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
This is an interesting parable of the kingdom, where Jesus predicts His own death, and the overthrow of the religious system of the Jewish people.
He would become the sacrifice on the altar of the cross, the final required sacrifice needed for all mankind, in every generation. Only God was qualified to do that, and Jesus is God, the 2nd person of the trinity.
I like the sense of this verse, revealing our heavenly Father’s heart: “They will reverence my son!
”Well, centuries have gone by, and people now indeed reverence Jesus, for it has never been as important what any person might think about what Jesus did on the cross, as what God Almighty thinks about it!
There are two hundred and fifty-six names given in the Bible for the Lord Jesus Christ, and I suppose this is because He is infinitely beyond all that any one name could express.
Billy Sunday, in a sermon, “Wonderful,” quoted in The Real Billy Sunday.
God Almighty, accepted Jesus shed blood as an acceptable offering for our sins!
We are forgiven, redeemed, adopted, provided access to His Holy presence, only through that blood!
Mary, was Jesus earthly mother, but she was a virgin when she concieved Jesus, for the mystery of the ages is summed up in who Jesus Father was: the holy seed that impregnated Mary, the Word that became flesh and dwelt amongst us. Jesus, God the Son.
How can He be both the Son of God, and God the Son? Liked they way this theologian put it: https://carm.org/how-can-jesus-be-both-god-and-son-of-god
He is no mere prophet, nor great moral teacher, He is the great I AM, the one who was, and is, and is to come, God the Son.
Here are a couple verses to build your faith in this truth:
Titus 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ This is the true God and eternal life
John 20:28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
Thomas recognized it, and Jesus did not correct him, for He is indeed Lord and God, 2nd person of the Trinity, seated forever at Gods right hand.
John 1:1,14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth
Mark 2:5-10 And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?”
So, will you accept what He did for you today, and receive Him as Lord, and King of your life?
There is no other way to heaven, no other mediator that God accepts on your behalf, no religious work that can justify you before a holy God, only Jesus…
Will you have this man as your King and Lord?
If so, pray this, and see His power:
‘Jesus, I receive you as God, the Son! I accept your love, your rule, your kingdom, and your power into my life. Now, Amen!”
