Who Is Jesus?
Jesus was born into a family of God’s chosen people. Therefore:
Jesus is a Jew.
Jesus is a human being. Therefore:
Jesus is made in the image of God. Therefore:
Jesus is a spirit.
But then we must look deeper to see the whole truth in answering the question. In point of fact it brings us to other questions that we shall develop as we go into the heart of who and what God and man really is. I know most people probably don’t ever give any thought. However I shall take you to some those places in this article!
Those who have rejected Jesus or decided to put off making a commitment to Him by accepting His pardon for their sin. Will soon find that they have made a grave mistake in judgment.
He is the creator of all things and yet unlike all other humans! He loves everybody and wants all to be saved. But gives you the freedom to choose the future you want to have! He freely gives to you the right to live in a world without sin or be banished from His creation.
Now that we know that Jesus is flesh and had the same body as we have. Until the resurrection and then took on the glorified body we will have in the new world! I will explore all the things that we should have questions about. Not only questions about Jesus but questions about ourselves as well!
The spirit of Jesus that inhabited the body of flesh that He was born with. Where did it come from? Certainly it must have been created by God and thus must have created somewhere else. Does everything that starts as a seed have a spirit created then sent to inhabit the body. The spirit is the real you and me! It appears to me that life never really ends it just changes where it will live and there is the real mystery that science will never discover. But lets take a look at the rest of what the Bible tells us about Jesus.
John 1: 1
(1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(2) The same was in the beginning with God.
(3) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
(4) In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
So here we are told that the word is a spirit person and a part of God Himself. Also has been with God from the very beginning. But none of these spirits had a body until the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary and Jesus was born in a body of flesh. Now Jesus is born and is God in the flesh. If you are a hater of the Jews I hope you are paying attention! If this doesn’t cause you to ask yourself, “where was I as a spirit before I was born into a body”?
For those who don’t accept that their will be a Rapture or Catching away, read your body and quit following false prophets. Just read it and believe it as it is written!
Matthew 5: 17 thru 18
(17) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
(18) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
If you are a Bible student you know that the first four of the Lords Feasts were fulfilled in the first coming of Jesus. It is certain He will fulfill the last three before the millennium. So lets look at those three that are yet to be fulfilled. Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot commonly knowned as Day of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles. These three feasts are at the harvest of the grapes.
3 Feasts Of The Lord not yet fulfilled
The Hebrew word for “feasts” (moadim) literally means “appointed times.”
5) Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24) – The first of the fall feasts. Many believe this day points to the Rapture of the Church when the Messiah Jesus will appear in the heavens as He comes for His bride, the Church. The Rapture is always associated in Scripture with the blowing of a loud trumpet (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:52).
The Feast of Trumpets was commanded to be held on the first day of the seventh month and was to be a “day of trumpet blast” (Numbers 29:1) to commemorate the end of the agricultural and festival year. The trumpet blasts were meant to signal to Israel that they were entering a sacred season. The agricultural year was coming to a close; there was to be a reckoning with the sins of the people on the Day of Atonement. The Feast of Trumpets signifies Christ’s second coming. We see trumpets associated with the second coming in verses like 1 Thessalonians 4:16, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.” Of course, the sounding of the trumpet also indicates the pouring out of God’s wrath on the earth in the book of Revelation. Certainly, this feast points toward the coming Day of the Lord.
6) Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27) – Many believe this prophetically points to the day of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return to earth. That will be the Day of Atonement for the Jewish remnant when they “look upon Him whom they have pierced,” repent of their sins, and receive Him as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:1-6, 25-36).
The Day of Atonement occurs just ten days after the Feast of Trumpets. The Day of Atonement was the day the high priest went into the Holy of Holies each year to make an offering for the sins of Israel. This feast is symbolic of the time when God will again turn His attention back to the nation of Israel after “the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and . . . all Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:25–26). The Jewish remnant who survive the Great Tribulation will recognize Jesus as their Messiah as God releases them from their spiritual blindness and they come to faith in Christ.
7) Tabernacles or Booths (Leviticus 23:34) – Many scholars believe that this feast day points to the Lord’s promise that He will once again “tabernacle” with His people when He returns to reign over all the world (Micah 4:1-7).
The Feast of Tabernacles (Booths) is the seventh and final feast of the Lord and took place five days after the Day of Atonement. For seven days, the Israelites presented offerings to the Lord, during which time they lived in huts made from palm branches. Living in the booths recalled the sojourn of the Israelites prior to their taking the land of Canaan (Leviticus 23:43). This feast signifies the future time when Christ rules and reigns on earth. For the rest of eternity, people from every tribe, tongue, and nation will “tabernacle” or dwell with Christ in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:9–27).
(8) Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
(9) Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
(10) So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
(11) And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
(12) And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
(13) Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(14) For many are called, but few are chosen.
(21) So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
(22) And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
(23) And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
(24) For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
(25) And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
(26) If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
(27) And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
When Jesus comes back in the second coming the church will be with Him. If there was no Rapture how could they be with Him? The rapture will happen very soon and you must choose if you want to be in it or suffer the worst times ever to be seen by man!
