WHAT DOES HEBREWS 10:5 TRULY MEAN?

 

“A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME” 

Does Hebrews 10:5 prove that Jesus PREEXISTED?

 

Does Hebrews 10:5 that refers to God preparing Jesus a BODY PROVE that Jesus pre-existed? And what I mean by Jesus preexisting is does ANY verse in the entire Bible prove, without a doubt, that Jesus preexisted as the SON OF Almighty God the Father in eternity past. Trinitarians Christians dogmatically demand that Jesus pre-existed as God the SON, the second divine being of the TRINITY Godhead who has ALWAYS existed WITH God the Father at God’s side. And, therefore, the THEM, Jesus is the ETERNAL SON of God WITHOUT ever having a BEGINNING nor ENDING. Other Christians argue that Jesus did indeed have a BEGINNING but his beginning was in eternity past. Some say God created a Spirit being named the Word and that the Word person created everything else. And then the divine separate Spirit being named the Word came down out of heaven to become the Son of God.

As I have already said many times in other studies, I believe that the Bible itself teaches us that Jesus preexisted as the ONE God Yahweh HIMSELF who alone is the one true God in ONE person. But more precisely, I believe that Jesus preexisted as the IMAGE that Yahweh had WITHIN himself to one day bring forth into existence his Son to replace Lucifer as the caretaker or the God of the earth. To say this another way, I believe that the WHOLE word of God teaches us that Jesus only pre-existed WITHIN the MIND of God as Yahweh's thoughts and plans to one day bring forth his Son into existence as God's secret PALN of salvation.

Take a moment to consider God doing NEW THINGS that he has never done before and that one of these NEW things was God bringing forth into existence his SON Jesus. Please read Isaiah 42:1-9 which is a PROPHECY of Jesus as the coming Messiah.

 

Isaiah 42:1-9.

 

“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

2. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

3.  A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 

4.  He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he has set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

5.  Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that gives breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

6.  I the LORD have called YOU in righteousness, and will hold YOUR hand, and will keep YOU, and give YOU for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

7.  To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

8.  I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (In other words, Yahweh is saying that he will share his glory with ONLY his ELCT one whom he has ANOINTED)

9.  Behold, the former things are come to pass, and NEW THINGS do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

 

Now, one of the FORMER things was that there was only ONE God who did not share his glory. But Yahweh would bring that old thing of not sharing his glory to pass away or come to an end. There was no other God or Gods in the OLD Testament that ruled FOR Yahweh, as in, being second in command having being given ALL power and authority as Yahweh gave to Jesus. To say this another way, God is prophesying of doing NEW THINGS on the earth. And one of those NEW things was to have a SON to INHERIT the worlds to come. Once you see that Jesus is NOT the ALMIGHTY who alone is the FATHER then it will be easier to see that Jesus did indeed have a beginning and that he was NOT co-eternal with the Father. So then the question becomes WHEN did Jesus becomes God's ETERNAL Son? Please read the three-part study called “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON? 1”

The main purpose of this study is to determine HOW the word of TRUTH, the WHOLE word of God teaches us that Jesus PREEXISTED? There are several verses that SEEM to be saying that Jesus LITERALLY pre-existed as a literal separate person from Almighty God the Father. And mainstream Orthodox Christianity dogmatically demands that “THEIR” way of interpreting those verses is the only way to correctly understand those verses of Scripture. But I want to assure my readers and seekers of the truth that there are other ways to interpret all the verses that SEEM to be saying that Jesus literally pre-existed as a literal second divine eternal Spirit being who was with God at God’s side in eternity past. Here is the first verse with which we will begin this study in God's word to determine HOW Jesus PREEXISTED?


Hebrews 10:5

 

“Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:”

 

Some Christians dogmatically demand that this verse means, without fail, that Jesus, as the SON OF Almighty God the Father, has always for all eternity PREEXISTING with Almighty God as the second person or a second divine being WITH God. And this second person they call the DIVINE SON OF God who then descended down from heaven to DWELL in a human body that God PREPARED for his DIVINE SON to be CLOTHED upon with humanity. And, therefore, to them, this means that the divine Son of God REMAINED to be the FULLY Almighty God and fully a man at the same time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

Now, the Oneness Pentecostal HUMAN BODY of flesh BORN of the virgin Mary for HIMSELF to dwell in and yet remain the FULLY Almighty God and fully a man at the same time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

And then, there are many Unitarian Christians like the Jehovah’s Witnesses and others who do not believe that Jesus is Almighty God Himself but they do believe that Jesus PRE-EXISTED in eternity past HAVING a BEGINNING.

And yet other Christians say NO! Jesus did NOT LITERALLY preexist as God's SON in eternity past. But rather, Jesus preexisted as the Word, as in, the SPOKEN word of PROPHECY that was within Yahweh as His thoughts and plans which God spoke forth out from His mouth to bring forth into existence a HUMAN Son first. And then the human Son of MAN, Jesus, was highly exalted to become a God AFTER the cross as the JOY set before him to endure the cross.

In other words, ALL these above INTERPRETATIONS except the last one dogmatically demand that the BODY that God PREPARED for His divine Word person or for his SON was a HUMAN BODY of FLESH and blood that the Word or the SON would inhabit or be clothed upon or be made to become FLESH, but yet REMAIN fully DIVINE at the SAME time having TWO natures and that this is the ONLY way that this verse can be INTERPRETED.

Now AFTER being TAUGHT that this INTERPRETATION is without fail the ONLY possible meaning of his verse for so long, I agree and can see why that this verse SEEMS to be saying that at the TIME Jesus came into the world Almighty God prepared a human body of flesh for an already preexisting DIVINE spirit being whether that SECOND Spirit being is called the Word or where this SECOND Spirit being is called the SON OF Almighty God the Father.

But is this truly what the WHOLE word of God teaches us? You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, upon taking a closer look at the CONTEXT of this verse I myself clearly see that this verse is speaking of Almighty God NOT being PLEASED with the Old Testament animal sacrifices that were offered over and over year after year.

In other words, to ME, it is quite clear that the BODY God prepared for his Son Jesus is his NEW divine immortal glorified spiritual body of flesh and bone. And that it was God PLAN all along to reward his only BEGOTTEN SON Jesus with the divine nature of IMMORTALITY. This was the JOY set before Jesus to endure the cross. Keep in mind that Jesus read the PROPHECIES that spoke of him after he already had a MORTAL body of flesh and blood. Let us read Hebrew 10:5 again.

 

Hebrews 10:5

 

“Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:” 

 

BUT the BODY that God would have prepared for a literal pre-existing Jesus would have had to be a MORTAL body of FLESH and blood. So to me, if so be that Jesus literally pre-existed then the prophecy should have read but two bodies you have prepared for me. The context in the very verse itself is talking about the SACRIFICE at the end of the mortal human life of the Son of MAN, Jesus. So again, to me, the obvious correct sound Biblical interpretation of Hebrews 10:5 is the new glorified immortal BODY that God prepared for the Son of MAN, Jesus.

Now, in ONE sense God did prepare or CREATE a human body by his spoken WORD in the womb of the Virgin Mary but this is NOT the ONLY BODY that God PREPARED for his SON Jesus. Again, please keep in mind the CONTEXT of this verse in question which is speaking of SACRIFICES. Also, please consider the ORDER in which the events of prophecy are given and fulfilled.

 

Please read Isaiah 9:6,7.

 

“For (Order of event #1 that has already been FULFILLED) unto us, a CHILD is BORN, (THEN comes Order of event #2 that has also already been FULFILLED) unto us a son is given: and (And THEN Order of event #3 is YET FUTURE and it is YET TO BE FULFILLED) the government shall be upon his shoulder: and ( And THEN will come Order of event #4 is  YET FUTURE and it is YET TO BE FULFILLED WHEN the government will be set upon the shoulder of Jesus IN the world to come) his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 

I7.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

 

So then, according to God’s word of prophecy a HUMAN CHILD would be born FIRST and THEN the human Son of MAN would be given to suffer and die on the cross. Then at the second coming of Jesus the highly exalted Son of Man, Jesus, will rule FOR Yahweh for 1000 years and the God of the whole earth while his God and Father will take His seventh 1000 year-long Sabbath rest. And it is Yahweh Himself who PERFORMS His own prophesied word to bring it to pass. Here is how the order of events was fulfilled.

In the fullness of the time when Jesus, the only or uniquely BEGOTTEN SON OF MAN having NO earthly father, grew to adult manhood to be called the Son of MAN then God sent down his OWN eternal Holy Spirit to DWELL IN his SON Jesus to EMPOWER the Son of MAN. Jesus. This is literally what the Bible itself means when it says God SENT his Son into the world. God sent the ANOINTED Son of MAN with power from on high out into the world. And after the anointed Son of man, Jesus became obedient to do all the will of HIS God and Father even to suffer and die a cruel and brutal death on the cross for the sins of the whole world, THEN his God and Father GAVE him the divine nature of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always possessed immortality in himself as the source of all life.

So then after God ANOINTED his Son Jesus with power from on high where Almighty God the Father, who is the eternal Spirit, began to DWELL IN Jesus, then God sent his SON Jesus OUT INTO the world to preach the gospel and do all the will of the Father ending with Jesus being crucified on the cross for the sins of the whole world.

And then Almighty God raised his SON from the dead and GAVE to the Son of MAN a NEW GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY that he had PREPARED for his SON Jesus even before that foundation of the world in his mind and plan to one day have a Son to SHARE his glory and his kingdom. This is what brought Yahweh pleasure.

Once again, after seeing and understanding the CONTEXT, which clearly shows us that the reason that the uniquely begotten Son of MAN came into the world was to be a PLEASING sacrifice that would END all sacrifices for sin once and for all time, then the BODY that was PREPARED for Jesus was his NEW GLORIFIED IMMORTAL SPIRITUAL BODY of flesh and bone that was NOT a corruptible body of flesh that God prepared for a LITERAL preexisting Son as some have falsely concluded that this verse means.

In other words, Almighty God NO LONGER ACCEPTED the animal sacrifices, BUT he did ACCEPT the sacrifice that his Son Jesus as being the Son of MAN made as an ATONEMENT for the sins of the whole world. The Lamb was slain BEFORE the foundation of the world but we all know and agree that Jesus was not LITERALLY slain BEFORE mankind was ever created.

God wanted a RIGHTEOUS Son who would NOT rebel against him. A Son he could TRUST to rule FOR him. And God was so pleased with his beloved Son to become obedient even unto death on the cross that he rewarded his Son with the divine nature of IMMORTALITY. To say this another way, the BODY that was PREPARED for Jesus was an IMMORTAL BODY as a REWARD for his SON Jesus doing ALL the will of his God and Father. This was the JOY set before Jesus to endure the cross, which Hebrews 12:2 teaches us.

 

Hebrews 12:2.

 

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who FOR the JOY that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Greek word that is TRANSLATED as “PREPARED” is “KATARTIZO”, which means TO RESTORE, put in order, to mend, to make complete, to prepare, to ORDAIN, perfect and to make perfect. And the ONLY time this Greek word is TRANSLATED as prepared is in this one verse of Hebrews 10:5.

So all you have to do is be HONEST with yourself to admit that the HUMAN body that some CLAIM to be the body that God prepared for his already LITERAL preexisting Son Jesus was NOT a PERFECT body. In other words, the full meaning of this Greek word does NOT fit with a PERISHABLE HUMAN BODY of mere MORTAL FLESH as Jesus had during the days of his FLESH as the body God prepared for a so-called pre-existing Jesus. But the meaning of this word does indeed fit the human body of Jesus being CHANGED and GLORIFIED to be made PERFECT and IMMORTAL. 

So again one more time, Hebrews 10:5 is speaking of the new GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY that God PREPARED or MADE PERFECT for his SON Jesus.

Also, please take note of the conjunction BUT, which also means YET, as in, yet a future preparing of a BETTER body. A body that is MADE PERFECT just like the Greek word “KATARTIZO” means. In other words, the CONTEXT of this verse teaches us that with the animals sacrifices God was NOT PLEASED. To say this another way, Jesus was simply saying, “BUT you O God will be or are SATISFIED with me as your sacrifice. And, therefore, you have PREPARED ME a BODY, speaking of an IMMORTAL body!” Please keep in mind that Jesus ENDURED the cross, BECAUSE of the JOY that was SET BEFORE him.

 

Hebrews 12:1-4.

 

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who FOR (Or BECAUSE OF) the JOY that was SET BEFORE him, ENDURED the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.

4. You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.”

 

Jesus knew that the scriptures spoke of him. And the very CONTEXT of Hebrews 10:5 teaches us in verse 7 that Jesus came as prophesied in the Scriptures.

 

Hebrews 10:7.

 

“Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of ME,) to do YOUR will, O God.”

 

Again, Jesus, the Son of MAN, knew that the Scriptures spoke of him and thus Jesus knew that it was needed for the Son of MAN to suffer and die for the sins of the people. And Jesus knew that he would dwell in the house of the Lord forever AFTER going through the valley of the shadow of death. But yet he SUFFERED being TEMPTED. Jesus knew of the yet COMING JOY being in the house of God forever with his God and Father so he ENDURED the cross of shame to be the PLEASING and ACCEPTABLE sacrifice for sins that would satisfy his God and Father.

 

Please read Isaiah 53:10-12 from the New Living Translation.

 

“But it was the LORD'S good PLAN to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. (Jesus knew that the scriptures spoke of HIM. Jesus knew from the scriptures that he would BECOME the father of everlasting life. Jesus knew that Almighty God the Father would COMMIT this authority to give eternal life to his faithful brethren to be joint-heirs with him. Praise the Lord!) He will enjoy a long life,(Speaking of ETERNAL LIFE. Jesus knew that the scripture promised him eternal life for obeying his God and Father to do all his will. In John 5:26,27 we learn that Jesus is GIVEN IMMORTALITY by his God and Father) and the LORD'S PLAN will prosper in his hands. (Jesus knew the PLAN of his God and Father from the scriptures that spoke of HIM. Jesus knew that this was God's PLAN from before the foundation of the world. To ME this is HOW Jesus PREEXISTED. I myself believe that Jesus preexisted only in the MIND and PLAN of Almighty God to ONE DAY bring FORTH a SON who would be his LAMB to redeem mankind back to himself. And as a REWARD God SET this great JOY of partaking of the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY before his Son Jesus for becoming obedient to endure a cruel death on the cross as the atonement for this sins of the whole world. The word of God teaches us that Jesus was TAUGHT morning by morning and that he INCREASED in wisdom, understanding, and favor with God as he grew in physical stature)

11. When He (Almighty God the Father) SEES all that is accomplished by his anguish, He (Almighty God the Father) will be SATISFIED. And because of what he has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins. 

12. I will GIVE him the HONORS of one who is mighty and great BECAUSE he exposed himself to death. He was counted among those who were sinners. He bore the sins of many and interceded for sinners.”

 

Philippians 2:8-11 teaches us that Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED for the very reason OF being that good and faithful servant of God to become obedient unto death on the cross. Please notice that it was only AFTER Jesus became obedient unto death on the cross that his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED his SON Jesus to become a God to rule and reign in his Father's kingdom and his Father's right hand on his Father's throne.

 

Philippians 2:8-11.

 

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9. Wherefore (Or for this very REASON of becoming obedient to endure the cross) God also has HIGHLY EXALTED him, and given him a NAME which is above every name:

10. That at the NAME of Jesus (Speaking of Jesus’ NEW NAME) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (Speaking of in the world to come. Yes, demons flee and the mere mention of the name of Jesus but the context of this verse is referring to the 1000 year reign of Jesus in the world to come)

11. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, TO the glory OF God the Father.”

 

 So in the LIGHT of the whole word of Almighty God, I myself have concluded that the BODY that was prepared for Jesus was his NEW GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY of flesh and bone, and therefore for ME, this verse in Hebrews 10:5 where God PREPARED a BODY for Jesus does NOT prove, without fail, that Jesus pre-existed for all eternity without beginning as God the SON, the second person of the so-called Trinity Godhead. For the true SOUND Biblical meaning of the word Godhead and Jesus supposedly being the fulness of the Godhead manifest in the flesh please read the study “WHAT DOES COLOSSIANS 2:9 TRULY MEAN?

 

Please keep in mind that I am NOT saying that Jesus did NOT preexist at all

 

But what I am saying is that this particular verse in Hebrews 10:5 does NOT PROVE, without fail, that Jesus pre-existed as GOD the SON, the SECOND PERSON of the Trinity as some dogmatically DEMAND that this is what this means. I personally believe that Jesus pre-existed only around 6000 years ago WITHIN Yahweh as His secret plan of salvation. For you see, to me, I am seeing that the Genesis account of creation is actually God “RESTORING” the earth after it BECAME void and empty during the Luciferian flood to bring the WAR between Lucifer and his army of the fallen angel making war against God’s throne. Please read all the studied under the heading >>>WHY ARE WE HERE-IS GOD AT WAR?<<< Below is a list of all the verses used to try and proved that Jesus literally pre-existed in eternity past as a literal eternal divine separate being who was with Yahweh at Yahweh’s side.

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Now, I, myself, do not find one verse in the entire Bible that prophesies of God the Son being sent down from heaven to incarnate himself as the Son of God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

More Scriptures that show the TRUE Jesus to be the fulfillment of the Scriptures of PROPHECY that you can look up on your own: Luk_24:6-7, Luk_9:22, Luk_18:31-33; Mat_16:21, Mat_17:22-23, Mat_20:18-19; Mar_8:31-32, Mar_9:31; Mar_10:33-34; 1Pe_1:10-11; Rev_19:10+++ Joh_16:4-5, Joh_16:16-17, Joh_17:11-13+++Luk_24:26-27, Luk_24:46, Luk_21:22; Mat_26:54, Mat_26:56; Joh_19:24-37; Act_3:18, Act_13:29-31, Act_13:33; 1Co_15:3-4

In the prophets: Luk_24:27; Act_10:43; Isa_7:14, Isa_9:6, Isa_11:1-10, Isa_28:16, Isa_40:1-11, Isa_42:1-4, Isa_49:1-8, Isa_50:2-6; Isa_52:13-15, Isa_53:1-12, Isa_61:1-3; Jer_23:5, Jer_33:14; Eze_17:22, Eze_34:23; Dan_2:44, Dan_7:13, Dan_9:24-27; Hos_1:7-11, Hos_3:5; Joe_2:28-32; Amo_9:11; Mic_5:1-4; Hag_2:7-9; Zec_6:12, Zec_9:9, Zec_11:8-13, Zec_12:10, Zec_13:7, Zec_14:4; Mal_3:1-3, Mal_4:2-6

And as I promised here is the list of the six main headings that list all the studies I have on this subject as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

I will also give this list of the six following headings again at the end of this study so you can stay focused on one study at a time.

 

>>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<

 

>>>IS THE DOCTRINE OF ONENESS BIBLICAL?<<<

 

>>>WHO OR WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?<<<

 

>>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<<

 

>>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

>>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<<

 

And for further studies on false teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ please read the studies listed throughout all the studies here at AMatterOfTruth.com and view the videos under the tab at the top called >>>FALSE TEACHINGS!<<< Under that heading, you will find the facts of what religious groups like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Islam teach about Jesus as compared to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, as in, the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And by the phrase “the WHOLE word of Almighty God”, I mean that all verses of Scripture must be correctly interpreted in the LIGHT of the whole word of God and compared with all other correctly interpreted verses of Scripture, as opposed to, interpreting a few verses that are taken OUT of context to teach what is not the truth of the WHOLE word of God. For you see, whenever any INTERPRETATION of a verse of Scripture CONTRADICTS any other verses of Scripture that are correctly interpreted in the light of the whole word of Almighty God then that INTERPRETATION is NOT the correct interpretation. So always interpret the hard “controversial” verses in the light of the SIMPLE CLEAR verses that do not need any interpretation to understand what they mean.

Plain and simple, if the gospel you have been taught does NOT follow the teachings of the WHOLE word of Almighty God under the NEW COVENANT written in the New Testament, then you have NOT been taught the TRUE BIBLICAL Jesus. Again, this does NOT necessarily mean that you are not saved, but rather, that you may not be walking with God in the FULL potential that our heavenly Father desires for you to walk. If you do not understand what I mean by this please be patient, this will all become clear as you read all the studies I give links to within this study. But you must have a sincere desire to know the truth and nothing but the truth.

So let us begin this study in God's word by me giving you a list of titles of Jesus during the days of his FLESH. Again, I will give this same list at the end of this study as well but for now, I would like you to simply read the list of titles of who Jesus was CALLED before Jesus ascended into heaven. There are actually FIVE AGES of Jesus and Jesus is something different in each of those five ages. I will also give the link to the study on the five ages of Jesus at the end of this study as well. But for now, please stay focused on reading THIS entire study first. Here are twelve titles of Jesus as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY.

 

Remember that Jesus is something DIFFERENT is each of the FIVE AGES of Jesus. So please read the study “THE FIVE AGES OF JESUS!”

 

#1. Jesus is the “I AM HE”!

 

Jesus said and if you do not believe I am he you will die in your sins. In other words, Jesus is the fulfillment of PROPHECY! What I mean by this is that Jesus is the one who was prophesied to come. Please read the following studies “PROPHECIES OF JESUS BEING THE MESSIAH!”, 365 PROPHECIES OF JESUS!”, “HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF JESUS!”, “WHO IS THE TRUE MESSIAH?”, and “JOHN 8:24 IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE I AM HE!”

 

#2. Jesus is the Son of MAN!

 

Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament Scriptures in the ORDER that the events of prophecy were prophesied. So this list of who Jesus is, according to the Bible itself is listed in the order that they were prophesied. In other words, Jesus did not come as the King of kings FIRST. But rather, Jesus was born of a VIRGIN first to suffer for the sins of the people. And then, Jesus will come again as the King of Israel. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!”

 

#3. Jesus is the CHRIST!

 

The word “Christ” does indeed mean the Messiah but before the Son of MAN, Jesus, actually became the Messiah by his death on the cross, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN. Many times in the Bible the word translated as “SENT” means COMMISSIONED and sending, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity meaning of being sent down from heaven. In other words, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN at his baptism by John the Baptist with His Holy Spirit and power to be able to accomplish the task that his God and Father commissioned or sent him out into the world to do. Please read the studies “JESUS THE CHRIST!” and “JESUS SAID WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?”

 

#4. Jesus is the SON OF God!

 

Jesus was prophesied to be called the Son of God but the Son of MAN was not called the Son of God until his baptism by John the Baptist. This was when Yahweh the Father announced the Son of MAN as being His Son in whom he is well pleased. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF GOD!”

 

#5. Jesus is our FELLOW SERVANT!

 

Jesus is our BROTHER. We will be JOINT-HEIRS with Jesus. Jesus is the FIRSTFRUITS unto God. Jesus is the CAPTAIN of our Salvation gone before us. Jesus is the FIRSTBORN of every creature in the image of God. And we are being conformed into the image of God’s dear Son. Jesus is the firstborn among MANY BRETHREN. Please read the study “JESUS OUR FELLOW SERVANT!”

 

#6. Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son of God!

 

To learn the TRUE meaning of “ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God” please read the study “JESUS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD!”

 

#7. Jesus is the FULNESS of the Godhead BODILY!

 

For the true SOUND Biblical meaning of Jesus being the fulness of the Godhead please read the study “JESUS THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD!”

 

#8. Jesus is GOD!

 

And according to the Bible ITSELF, Jesus is “A” God under and subject TO HIS God and Father who ALONE is the ONLY TRUE God. Please BEGIN with the study “37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!” And under four numbers I will list four things that Jesus is NOT.

 

#9. Jesus is NOT the FATHER!

 

Please read ALL the studies under the heading >>>IS THE ONENESS DOCTRINE BIBLICAL?<<<

 

#10. Jesus is NOT Almighty God Himself!

 

But rather Jesus is the IMAGE OF the invisible God. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?”

 

#11. Jesus is NOT Yahweh Himself!

 

Jesus came out from God but that does not mean that Jesus is Yahweh Himself. Please read the study “IS JESUS YAHWEH?”

 

#12. Jesus is NOT God the Son, the second person of the Godhead Trinity God who always existed without beginning in eternity past!
