Jesus is the most important person who has ever lived. He is the Savior, God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully divine and fully man. In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human. Jesus is the Word<> who was:
- and was with God
- and was made flesh
This means that in the single person of Yeshua (Jesus) He has both a human and divine nature; God and man.
The divine nature was not changed when the Word became flesh (John 1:1, 14). Instead, the Word was joined with humanity (Col. 2:9).
***Jesus’ divine nature was not altered. Yet He was fully man. ***
Yeshua was not just a man who “had God within Him.” He is not just a man who “lived the God principle.” He truly has both of those qualities; However, He is God in the flesh. “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.” (Heb. 1:3).
Yeshua’s two natures are not “mixed together” (Eutychianism), nor are they combined into a new God-man nature (Monophysitism). They are separate yet act as a unit in the one person of Yeshua. This is called the Hypostatic Union.
Understanding this helps us to better come into communion with Yeshua. He was fully man: He suffered as we do, felt as we do, builds understanding and grows in communication with the Father as we do, was tempted as we are. When The Bible refers to “all” as in “all men,” Yeshua is included in all men. When The Bible refers to God or the Holy Spirit or The Word made flesh or Yeshua, He is included. He is meant for us to love and stand in awe of.
Is this something that can be true and hold up to the words in The Bible? The Words in The Bible would not be true if this nature wasn’t in existence.
<God, who at sundry times and diverse manners spake in times past unto the elect by the prophets, Whom in these last days has spoken unto us by His son Whom He hath appointed heir of all things, through Whom also He created the worlds.>
That means that Yeshua created the worlds, but in Isaiah we learn that
<Thus saith The Lord Thy Redeemer, and He that formed you from the womb. I am The Lord that maketh all things , that stretcheth forth the heavens alone, that spreadeth abroad the earth by Myself.>
We won’t understand it without first having faith like a child. We are commanded to have faith in His words for they are life. Upon believing on God’s Son, Our Brother Jesus Christ, we will have that faith and understanding and be granted with eternal life for believing on Him. Be blessed my brothers and sisters, through The I love you all a bushel and a peck.
