The book of First Kings says, “The heavens and the highest heavens can not contain Him” yet the Apostle Paul writes “All of the fullness of the Godhead dwelt in Him.”
Divinity poured into the flesh of humanity. Kissed by Heaven’s glory, the King of all Kings nursed at his young mother’s breast. A great mystery! The Holy One of Israel, the blessed Messiah grew in favor with God and man. Tested by every temptation yet no sin in Him was found. The infinite became finite. Bound by the limits of mortal man the one who knew no limitation succumbed to weariness, fatigue and hunger. He sweat great drops of blood in agony for the cruel suffering that awaited Him.
Perfect. A spotless, unblemished lamb, would satisfy the righteous law of a Holy God. But his own son? Evil taunted, men jeered and for a moment, His heavenly Father looked away. Meetings sins’ cruel demand, death swallowed Him as His blood poured. Transforming the darkest soul’s stain to snow’s pristine purity. At least for those who believed.
The Apostle John saw Him. He knew who He was for he writes; “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.”
WOW! The darkness can’t quench the light, it can only make it brighter! “The true light, which gives light to everyone, came into the world. He was in the world and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. He came to His own and his own people did not receive Him.” But the prophet Isaiah said they wouldn’t! Not until the time was fulfilled. The time of Jacob’s trouble when they would cry out to the Lord for their Messiah and call His name BLESSED.
“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus, Jesus, Yeshua, My Savior, My Redeemer.
Amos called Him the Burden Bearer. Isaiah called Him the Prince of Peace. Luke called Him the Son of Man. John called Him the Son of God.
Me? I call Him my Lord.
