God In the Flesh

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;  Hebrews 1:3

 

Some Christians are still confused on the divinity of Christ. They are still unsure whether Jesus is God in human form. Well hopefully the author of Hebrews can clear it up for them. In  this scripture the original Greek word used here is “charakter” meaning exact copy or representation. So let me ask you, who in the history of the world has been described as identical to God?

 

Only Jesus Christ has ever been described as the exact representation of God. Anyone else to make this claim, who would they think they are? Who else’s blood could cleanse the sin of the world? As Jesus said “Nobody is good except God alone” (Mark 10:18) So in order for Christ’s blood to be accepted as atonement for our sins, He must be God. Otherwise his sacrifice would not be sufficient enough for our salvation.

 

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 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? Hebrews 1:4-5

 

Now other Christian groups will start saying “Well Jesus was an Angel or majestic being” However the scripture tells us clearer Jesus is above all the angels. Taking it another step forward, who did God ever call his Son except for Jesus Christ? 

 

Think about the angels for second, they refused to bow down before anyone except God Almighty, but they have no hesitation bowing down to the Lord Jesus. This should give you a clear explanation of who Jesus is and the deity that he posses

 

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 is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Hebrews 1:6-8

Here there is a clear distinction between Jesus and all of the angels. As all the angels are commanded to bow down and worship Christ. Notice the title Jesus was given in the last scripture, “Thy throne O God”  Jesus is referenced as God and His Throne will reign forever!

 

Make no mistake Jesus is God in the flesh , the image of the Invisible God, and He will reign forever Amen!
