Son Of Man Part 2

But He kept silent and did not answer. Again the high priest was questioning Him, and saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” Matthew 14:61

The big question that most Jews wanted to know, what is Jesus the Messiah? This is the One who was written in their scriptures for centuries. The Messiah was prophesied by Moses, by Abraham, by David, by Daniel, by Isaiah, every book in the Old Testament you can find reference to the Messiah

So if these High Priests suspected Jesus was the Messiah, why would they treat him so harshly? Why would they kill the anointed one of God? Well we look at the world today, the Messiah has been revealed for over 2,000 years and people still reject him and want to kill him.

The fact is the High Priests didn’t want to change, just like we don’t want to change. People reject Jesus not because of evidence or prophecy, but because they have a morality issue. Jesus requires we become Born Again, deny ourselves, carry our crosses, repent! Nobody wants to hear this, especially people who love sin

And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.” Matthew 14:62

Jesus declared He is the Son of Man from the Prophecy of Daniel. He is the Messiah, the Son of God. Most peoples problem is they don’t know what the Messiah or Christ even means. They don’t know what being the Messiah means because they don’t read the Word of God.

The religious leaders knew exactly what it meant, Jesus was God in the Flesh! But they didn’t want to Repent, they didn’t want to give away their riches, they didn’t want to become servants of Christ, so they condemned their eternal souls

Jesus is coming in the clouds again, prepare yourselves for the coming of The Lord Amen!

Line of David

And Jesus began to say, as He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? Mark 12:35

The Messianic Prophecies reveal that the Messiah (Christ) will be from the line of David. This obviously brought confusion among the religious leaders as they were expecting a literal biological Son of David to rise up and become King. However how would that Son possibly be God in the Flesh then if he was just a descendant of David?

This is one of the fun things about studying the fulfilment of prophecy. We have in our minds how God will fulfill something when God has a totally different way that we have trouble comprehending.

“David himself said in the Holy Spirit, ‘THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, “SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET.”‘ David himself calls Him ‘Lord’; so in what sense is He his son?” And the large crowd enjoyed listening to Him. Mark 12:36-37

Jesus goes on to teach that King David, filled with the Holy Spirit, called the Messiah Lord. Now if the Messiah was truly Davids biological Son he wouldn’t be calling him Lord as that would not be appropriate. A Father would not call a Son Lord, a Son would call a Father Lord.

However David was addressing Jesus as Lord not one of his Sons. So how is Jesus from the Line of David you ask? Well Joseph and Mary are both from the line of David, and during the Census in Bethlehem (City of David) Joseph registered Jesus as his Son, making him from the Line of David

Jesus being God in the Flesh could not come from a biological Father, he was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit and fulfilled the prophecies of the Line of David. Gods thoughts are higher than our thoughts and ways are higher than our ways! Amen!

Greater Prophet

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him. Deuteronomy 18:15

While reading this from a Christian perspective, this may not seem like a big statement by Moses. However lets remember who Moses was at this time. Moses at this time was the greatest prophet that lived. He talked to God face to face on Mt Sinai, He parted the Red Sea with God and marched the Israelites to safety. With God, Moses brought the deadly plagues to Egypt to show Pharaoh that Yahweh was the One True God

Up till this time,nobody has ever seen anyone like Moses, but Moses now said somebody even greater than him is coming. How can someone be even greater than Moses, a man who talked to God personally as a friend? Because Jesus is the Son of God, the Word in living Flesh!

As Moses predicted the Messiah (Christ) would come from Israel, as Jesus did. And he performed greater miracles than Moses, The Great I AM has come into the flesh!

“Moses said, ‘THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR BRETHREN; TO HIM YOU SHALL GIVE HEED to everything He says to you. Acts 3:22

Some might say well Moses was referring to Joshua. Well Peter confirms by the Holy Spirit, that Moses was referring to Jesus Christ. Peter reveals to them they killed their own Messiah but God raised him from the dead (Acts 3:15)

Everyone who does not listen to Him (Jesus) will be completely cut off from among HIS people (Acts 3:23)  Jesus is the only way to salvation, rejection of him is rejection of eternal life!
