Regarding the greatness of God, Isaiah 40:17 states that the whole known world (all nations) are as nothing before Him, and they are counted by Him as less than nothing and worthless. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail, the incarnate deity. This is a matter of the heart, and only the Holy Spirit can show you what He is inviting you to do to have more time with Him. While those who deny his deity believe they are honoring Jesus Christ in calling him a great man, the Bible says he emptied himself voluntarily by accepting the limitations of humanity. “Then answered Jesus, and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19). The glory of God was such that no human could look at it and live. I want you to fully understand that this revelation of the knowledge of Jesus does not take place in a vacuum. This revelation is referenced in a passage in the Apostle Paul's message to Phillippi. He walked the dusty roads of Judea and stooped to wash the feet of His disciples. Then Jesus goes on to explicitly say that no one can know the Father, unless the Son reveals the Father. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Although it is written in a non-mathematical format, I had to struggle to get the gist of much of it, and a good hunk of it went over my head. As you engage in this �soaking� process, you will discover that you �see� Jesus in every Old Testament book, to say nothing of the New Testament. As you hear His voice more clearly, there will be points of obedience that He orchestrates in your life. However, one thing came through indirectly, but loud and clear--Hawking is not going to become a Biblical believer just because he has to acknowledge that our universe began with a �big bang.� Hawking side-steps the implications of the big bang by speculating that there may be any number of big bang �bubble universes� like ours. He voluntarily makes Himself of no reputation. Glory, in the sense it is used with reference to Jesus, is a divine attribute. A proper understanding of this verse demolishes the claims of the Jehovah�s Witnesses and the Mormons that Jesus is a created son who takes a secondary role next to God the Father. Jesus put on the veil of human flesh and blood at his conception. For much of His earthly ministry, Jesus’ humanity veiled this glory, hiding it from human sight behind the weakness of human flesh. Let�s take a look at what the Word of God says about ultimate purpose, which flows out of knowing the Ultimate Person! Jesus is God. Questions about ultimate meaning are beyond the scope of science. As Moses concealed the fading glory of his face, so even to this day Paul says in verse 14, the true significance of the old covenant is veiled. What we see in the transfiguration is what Jesus is really like. When Old Testament believers witnessed an appearance of Christ, they were often fearful for their lives. fore his birth, heaven was his throne. There are people who commit suicide because they believe life has no purpose, and even larger numbers who live in depression and despair because they have no meaning--no purpose--in their lives. Jesus grew in mental, physical, spiritual, and social areas of life (Luke 2:52). “For we have not an high priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. There are many people who believe in the doctrine of the Incarnation (that Jesus is both perfect man and Almighty God) but who have never submitted their hearts to Him. Because he has experientially known the frustrations of humanity, we have a “God of all comfort” (2 Cor. This glory that belong to Jesus was veiled. At present, we only have a veiled glimpse of the weight of glory. Purpose in life flows out of knowing Him and doing His will (And this is eternal life, that they may know You, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. The book of Colossians makes two astounding statements. And the �purpose question� is extremely important. Jesus had not lost these attributes of God, but rather, in the process of emptying himself, he chose not to use his relative attributes. When Jesus came to earth, we read that God's GLORY came to earth and people were in the presence of GLORY. Jesus hid his glory when he became a man in order to show his Father’s glory. His flesh veiled His deity while He was here on earth. Rather, He shares with the Jesus hid his glory when he became a man in order to show his Father’s glory. And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Here again Jesus is talking about hidden or veiled glory that will be revealed to those who love Him. He veiled His glory, and He chose to occupy the position of a slave. What do we do to know Jesus better? Dr. Elmer Towns is a college and seminary professor, an author of popular and scholarly works (the editor of two encyclopedias), a popular seminar lecturer, and dedicated worker in Sunday school, and has developed over 20 resource packets for leadership education.His personal education includes a B.S. Jesus became hungry when he did not eat (Matt. He sets aside His high position and waves His divine prerogatives because He loves us. But once we believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord and that God has raised Him from the dead, what are the next steps? As a child he developed as every human must develop. 1:14). The people could not look upon God and live. The book of Isaiah in the Old Testament breathes with the Presence of an awesome God who created everything, who predicts the future precisely, and who reveals Himself to everyone who has a repentant, humble heart. The transfiguration of Jesus Christ was a powerful demonstration of His divine nature and manifestation of His glory, which Jesus possessed prior to coming to earth in the human body. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness of the truth. Its true significance was to point beyond itself to a day when Messiah would atone for sin and the law would be written on … That celestial glory was temporarily hidden during his earthly life. The unbelieving scientist always provides himself with an escape hatch, even if that hatch is made of pure speculation and not even one speck of substance. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Jesus’s glory as God was veiled in human flesh but at times His glory, the so-called Shekinah glory, was revealed. In the light of His full divinity, we begin to see the corruption of our sin. Jesus is saying, in effect, �As dependent upon my Father as I am in these days of my flesh and blood manifestation, I am not dependent upon my Father for my essential, eternal existence. From the beginning of time, Jesus, had his own glory. He is simply the Maker and Sustainer of the universe. So the issue of purpose is not theoretical at all. from Northwestern College in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a M.A. 12:4). Paul sums up his teaching about the identity of Jesus by saying in Colossians 2:8 that in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. When we think of the Creator, we tend to think of the Father. If Jesus had not veiled his preincarnate glory he could not have accomplished what he came to earth to do. (1 Corinthians 2:9; 13:12). He surrendered the independent use of some attributes. Simply put, the most important thing we can discover in the New Testament is who Jesus really is. What is the Shekinah glory of God? Our modern understanding of the size of our universe leads us to the conclusion that Isaiah was engaging in understatement, rather than poetic exaggeration. This means that Jesus, in the essence of His being as the Eternal Son, is not dependent upon the Father for existence. Well the context indicates very clearly that Jesus veiled His glory as a sign of his humility. The Son does not simply create the universe �on assignment� and then hand it back to the Father as a task accomplished. He can spot a carpet mite or a virus from a distance of one billion light years, and he governs the galaxies without ever breaking into a sweat. His glory is the triumph of every battle he wins over all his personal, global, and universal enemies. He is the Infinite Mathematician, and He is also the Master Artist and the Writer of Magnificent Stories. But how comforting is the prospect that Jesus mentions —everlasting life! Clearly, Jesus recognizes that giving God glory is of prime importance. He holds visiting professorship rank in five seminaries. When Old Testament believers witnessed an appearance of Christ, they … The nature of the underlying cosmic structure, as currently understood, would prevent us from ever knowing if other universes existed. What an incredible statement! from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.He is co-founder of Liberty University, with Jerry Falwell, in 1971, and was the only full-time teacher in the first year of Liberty’s existence. No wonder there was a supernatural darkness during the last three hours Jesus hung on the cross. Yet while Jesus veiled the light of His glory, He did exercise other divine attributes such as His sovereignty over creation when He calmed the storm (Mark 4:35–41). 53:2). It is so simple that a fourth–grader can read it with pretty good understanding. 6:1-8). When John saw Jesus in the full glory that was his from the beginning, John wrote, “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead” (Rev. The primary avenue is to soak our hearts in the Word of God and ask the Spirit to give us more understanding of the person and glory of Jesus. It's Christmas in July here. In Colossians 2:6 Paul says �As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him.� In other words, we received Him by believing the truth about Who He is and submitting our hearts to let Him be our Lord. from Dallas Theological Seminary also in Dallas, a MRE from Garrett Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois, and a D.Min. In the humility and simplicity of His manhood He claimed full equality with His Father. The result was that the universe itself was affected, and something happened to the normal transmission of light. Veiled in Flesh the Godhead See He was pleased to lay aside His glory. Towns has given theological lectures and taught intensive seminars at over 50 theological seminaries in America and abroad. the herald angels sing, “Glory to the New-born king!” Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace, Hail, the Sun of Righteousness. He was obviously immensely impressed with this Man. To really perceive Jesus to be God in human flesh requires an act of submission to Him. Jesus tells us that we can have no true knowledge of the Father unless He, Jesus, chooses to make this revelation to us. 532 Christ's body was glorified at the moment of his Resurrection, as proved by the new and supernatural properties it subsequently and permanently enjoys. Stop and think about it for a minute. Jesus came to grant us access to the Father through the forgiveness of our sins. But Colossians 1:16 identifies the Creator as the Son. Nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.� This statement of Jesus is truly radical. The kenosis was a self-renunciation, not an emptying Himself of deity. Truth is not something that He brings, as it were, to the table. As a result of the incarnation, Jesus became the God-man. Now He lays His Glory by, he went out and redoubled his efforts to get Jesus released. Hebrews 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; There was glory in Him. Not only has the Son created the universe, but it is the active power of the Son that holds the universe together. NKJV. Coming to Jesus and bowing before Him as Lord is really not a mental or an intellectual act. But on the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus’ refulgent glory and majesty were displayed in visible form in a blinding display of whiteness. If no one knows the Son except the Father, it is quite clear that we cannot truly know the Son (that is, know Who He really is, and worship Him) unless the Father reveals Him to us. Moses may have worn his veil until his death forty years later on Mt. So, even in the Old Testament, there were times when people "saw" God—usually in a veiled, indirect way. When Moses spent forty days alone with God on Mount Sinai, it was necessary to cover his face when he came down because it reflected the glory of God. Four doctoral dissertations have analyzed his contribution to religious education and evangelism. No, the universe, by the Father�s express purpose, is created by the Son and for the Son. He voluntarily laid aside his power to do them and relied on the Holy Spirit or the Father. We grow in him (or walk in Him, as Paul puts it) by continuing to focus our attention upon Him and the glory of Who He is, and continuing to yield our lives to His direction. This is not to suggest that the Father and the Spirit were not vitally involved in the creation process. Jesus Himself claimed to be the �Yahweh� of the Old Testament in John 8:58, when he said, Before Abraham was, I am. “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18). His glory is the sum of all the beauties of love and wisdom and power that he revealed in his earthly life. His stories are filled with drama, and danger, and wonderful victories, and best of all, they are real stories that are worked out in the lives of men. Jesus said in Matthew 11:27 that �all things have been delivered to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Self-emptying took place also by the voluntary choice not to use certain of his attributes. This man of eighty spent forty years more in guiding Israel, and in the end his eye had not dimmed, nor his natural force abated. Hark! Yes, Jesus is a king. They knew that sinful man could not look upon God and live. NLT. We must set aside time to pursue Him through the word and prayer. I am reminded of the words of Andrew Murray over a hundred years ago, when he wrote: I have not been afraid of continuously repeating this one thought: Our one need is, to know Jesus better; the one cure for all our feebleness, to look to Him on the throne of heaven, and really claim the heavenly life he waits to impart. The book�s title is The Universe in a Nutshell. Second, He did not use His divine attributes to benefit Himself. When John was on the Isle of Patmos, he too had a vision of Christ. Jesus … Written by Michael Kelley | Friday, December 25, 2020 We do not follow a King that is far off, one who reigns from a distant palace at a great distance from the real life struggles of His subjects. The glory of God was also the judgment of God; the natural person who saw it died. Texts: John 17: 3, 5; John 6: 62; Ephesians 1: 15-17; Colossians 1: 17, 18. God cares about the details of every person�s life, God provides atonement for human sin, which results in forgiveness, changed behavior, and communion with God; and. In the incarnation, Jesus’ glory was veiled and He voluntarily limited the use of certain of His divine attributes as He took on the form of a servant and became obedient to death on the cross (Phil. But even in the obedience He calls us to He does not leave us to obey in our own strength. Instead, I share with the Father in uncaused, absolute existence.�. Now in the flesh, Jesus was limited to the distance that a man could walk on the paths of Galilee. But please bear with me and read it thoughtfully, even if it takes two sessions. Sadly, mental faith alone is not saving faith. The following two tabs change content below. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. Scripture says that as He died on the cross, … Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up His spirit. It says that the whole universe was created by Him and for Him (Col. 1: 16) In other words, the Eternal Son is the One who spoke the universe into existence. We don’t fully know everything we will experience in heaven. Only by gazing on the unfading—no, the ever-increasing—glory of Jesus Christ through his Spirit, can the veil be lifted and people finally see the old covenant for what it is (fading). God will send an anointed One, the Messiah, who will be both God and man, and Who will in His own death provide the perfect atonement for human sin. 17:1–4; Jn. Listen to the message from Sunday evening, October 25 at www.calvarybaptistsaltillo.org. Father in eternal, uncaused existence. When Jesus came, His glory was veiled in the flesh. On various occasions he made it clearly known he was doing the work of his Father. However, I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth. He is the One who, on the morning of His resurrection, said to Mary Magdalene, �Go to My brethren and say to them, �I am ascending to My Father and to your Father, to My God and to your God.�� His Aramaic name was, and is, Yeshua. 4:15). We have to look elsewhere to answer questions about the purpose of life. It was a glory He possessed before His incarnation and it is a glory that he reassumed at the ascension. He is truth. In John chapter 5, Jesus claims full equality with the Father, and then states that the Father has granted Him life in Himself, just as the Father has life in Himself. Now, stay with me a little longer as we explore how the New Testament steps beyond the Old Testament in exploring the issue of actually knowing God and perceiving His glory.. Programs are legalistic and burdensome. 17:2) on the mount of transfiguration. In other words, Paul is saying that they need, by the revelation of the Spirit, to know Him better. Truth emanates from Him, as light and heat from a fire. But He is much more than a king. He was omnipotent, yet he prayed to God to perform the raising of Lazarus from the dead. However, it�s not a matter of a new program for more Bible study and prayer. Hebrews and Colossians agree on one more point. The glory of the light of God upon his countenance may have been the reason why he remained so hale in later years of old age. Talking to some of His skeptical disciples, He said (in John 6: 62), �What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before?� In other words, �If I tell you spiritual truth, and if offends you, what are you going to do when I ascend to my father and My true glory is revealed?� And in John 17:24 Jesus says �Father, I desire that they also whom you gave me may be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory which you have given me; for you loved me before the foundation of the world.� Here again Jesus is talking about hidden or veiled glory that will be revealed to those who love Him. What is it that hinders so many people from knowing Jesus in this personal, intimate way? When He came to earth, “he gave up his divine privileges” (NLT). However His name is transliterated, it is glorious, because it is the name of a Man who died as a blasphemer that He might save the human race, and that He might carry the weight of your sins--and mine. Remember that the focus of seeking him must always be to get to know Him better. It was a glory He possessed before His incarnation and it is a glory that he reassumed at the ascension. After the work of atonement was done, he could pray, “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was” (John 17:5). Paul talks about this wonderful process in II Corinthians 3: 18-- �But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.�. His name is the Son of God. The Apostle John puts it this way in I John 2:23: �Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.� The definition of the Son is spelled out in John chapter 5, where we earlier saw that the Son is fully equal to His Father, and that His existence before time is not dependent on the Father (�For as the Father his life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself�). In other words, one cannot have a true, saving knowledge of the Father unless the Son touches his or her soul with spiritual revelation. Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, �My way is hidden from the Lord, and my just claim is passed over by my God?� We could summarize the essential message of the Old Testament with four statements: These statements can be supported with literally dozens of Old Testament scriptures. Having received “authority over all flesh,” Jesus can offer the benefits of his ransom to all mankind. It has a profound affect on our behavior, and on the quality of our inner life. He had the essential elements of human nature. The mystery of Jesus Christ is that he put on the physical veil of human nature. He did not use them to make His human life easier. Perhaps the best expression of omnipotence is that of the miracles of God. The One who arranged your genes at the moment of conception is the One who called the universe into being something like 14 billion years ago. The Son of God who created water voluntarily lived in a body that got thirsty. So, denying the Son is denying the definition of the Son given in the gospel of John. 4:2). “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory” (John 1:14). How far do we take this �beholding His glory?� To which I would respond, �Trying more diligently is not the Biblical way.� But something wonderful happens when we �receive the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.� We are changed without trying to change. Colossians 1:17 says in Him all things consist, and Hebrews 1:3 says that the Son is upholding all things by the word of His power. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. It is the glory of God that He refuses to share with any man. Now, having laid this foundation, in my next teaching I will move on to the topic of the Body of Christ, which is, next to the glory of Jesus (Who reveals the Godhead), the most important topic and the most wonderful truth in all the universe. Yet, even with the splendor and joy of Christmas all around, you or someone you know may be convinced Jesus was just another man, possibly a prophet, but certainly not the Messiah. from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, a Th.M. Nebo. Therefore all men are veiled off from seeing into Heaven and from seeing God, because we … Even though Jesus was known as a miracle worker, he performed those miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit (Matt. So, what is the ultimate purpose of the universe we live in? But we read that there was still a veil also. In the New Testament, all the authority and tender mercies of God are embodied in the person of Jesus our Lord. He was body (Heb. It’s a holy season for Christians—a time to bask in God’s glory shown to us through His Son Jesus Christ. He was omnipresent, but when he became flesh, he limited himself to being in one place at one time. Sin has separated mankind from God. Since we have also seen that God’s glory is in one sense the summation of His attributes, anytime Jesus exercised divine attributes, people saw something of the divine glory.
