Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting up The Marvelous Light Of Jesus Christ

Window On The Word - January 2011

Part 3
Tim Greenwood
Last month we saw that John, probably in Jesus’ eulogy, unveiled the Godhead all the way back to Genesis 1:1.

Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

The Hebrew word translated “God” is Elohiym and it is plural which describes the Godhead.

Genesis 1:2 … And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Here we see one member of the Godhead, the Spirit of God, working individually.

Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Here we see God (Elohiym) speaking as one.

Now lets go back to John 1:1-2:
“In the beginning was the Word.”  We already know from reading the passage that John is talking about Jesus, so JESUS IS the WORD.  John goes on to say, “the Word was with God, and the Word was God” and “The same was in the beginning with God.” So, Jesus was, from the beginning, (Gen.1:1), part of the Godhead.

Verse 3 tells us that JESUS created everything in the material realm in which we live.  Every electron, proton, quark, fermion, lepton, boson of every atom of every element in every universe, star system and planet and everything on, above or under every planet.  And this includes every mineral, plant and living thing including man (Adam).

There is a Kingdom of God in Heaven.  That Kingdom is made up entirely of “spirit” and everything and everyone in it is composed of spirit.  And the Godhead decided to expand that Kingdom to a material realm where they would create man:  A spirit being like the Godhead, with a soul made up of a mind, will and emotions, but existing in a material, physically living body; designed to rule and reign on Earth, just as the Godhead rules and reigns in Heaven.  The entire material creation was created to support the existence and the expansion of this material Kingdom, which would begin on Earth, the dominion over which Adam was installed ruler, (King or even god, little ‘g’, if you will).

The purpose, from the beginning, was The Kingdom of God – in Earth – as it is in Heaven.
Adam, as you may know, not only refused to rule, but also legally transferred his crown and scepter to a spirit being who had more leadership experience.  His name is Satan, the enemy of God.  This act by

Adam (our ancestor) was judged as high treason against the Kingdom of God, and Adam’s breach (or sin) has been passed down through every subsequent generation.

Without repentance (a legal contractual change) before the Godhead, we (mankind) are treasonous, rebellious, lying, thieving followers of our father Adam and subsequently citizens of the devil’s kingdom; and thereby cut off from the Godhead.

History, as recorded by Moses in the Torah, (the first five books of the Bible), and later books recorded by others, reveals interaction between a member of the Godhead called the LORD (or LORD God or just God) and Adam, as well as subsequent attempted interactions with other individuals.  In every single case, this member of the Godhead was the one that we now call JESUS.

It was He that cast Adam out of Eden.  It was He that instructed Noah in building the Ark.  It was He that stayed Abraham’s hand from slaying Isaac.  It was He that spoke from the burning bush.  It was He that that split the Red Sea.  It was He that that spoke to Israel from above Mt. Sinai.  It was He that set up a separate autonomous contractual system (what we now know as the ‘old’ covenant) within the devil’s kingdom to allow those within that system to temporarily free themselves from sin, judgment and condemnation.  It was He that set legal precedents through Israel and the Mosaic Laws to make legal and binding his later sacrificial atonement for our remission and redemption.  It was He that spoke to the prophets.  It was He that that inspired King David to write the Book of Psalms.  It was He – the WORD - that would become – JESUS!

In verse 14 John says, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Here John reveals that Jesus, born of Mary, was a member of the Godhead born in a human body.  But WHY would He DO THAT?

Paul reveals this to us in First Corinthians 15:45 quoting, “The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a life-giving spirit.”

With all of the legal groundwork now laid, Jesus came:
1.    As the second and last Adam to re-establish the Kingdom of God – in Earth – as it is in Heaven.  This was His primary mission.
2.    To remit man’s sins and transgressions (personal and generational) and expunge every record.
3.    To redeem mankind from the devil’s kingdom by paying a sufficient legal ransom or penalty to cover all of mankind.
4.    To set up a new, separate, autonomous, contractual system, as part of the Kingdom of God, (we now call this the ‘new’ covenant), governed through deputization and power of attorney.
5.    To teach mankind through both word and example how to rule, reign and be successful, as well as who they really are, what they can do and what they can have.
6.    To EQUIP mankind with a Bible loaded with legally binding Kingdom contracts, promises and agreements between the Godhead and mankind that are applicable to every need.

And as we know, Jesus did accomplish every bit of His part.  He did it through His teaching and example; He set up a five-fold ministry leadership of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers to equip and build the assembly of the Kingdom; He gave His body to be beaten, broken and brutalized to redeem us from the curse of the law, back into the blessing of the Kingdom of God.  He shed His own lifeblood for the remission of our sins and expunged our records.  And on top of all that, after He left to receive the throne over the Kingdom of God, both in Heaven and Earth, He saw to it that we could have access to the Bible and access to He and Father God through the Holy Spirit. This is WHO Jesus was and IS.  Do you now see why your only HOPE is JESUS?

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

In this case it is talking about things.  FAITH (good faith) creates substance, (or something substantive) from HOPE (expectation, anticipation or desire).

Therefore HOPE is a prerequisite to FAITH. But, Jesus, our only HOPE, was and is the basis and source of that HOPE. TGM
