The Dispensation of the Hypostatic Union, Part 5. Jesus teaches us how to handle lies, accusations, and unjust treatment.

Sunday, August 3, 2008

For the first time, a member of the human race functioned under the power of the Holy Spirit to not only fulfill the plan of God as a member of the human race, but also to become the prototype or example to all believers on how to live the spiritual life.

The Lord Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and came into the world without the imputation of Adam’s original sin and without an OSN.

Our Lord operated in this power throughout His ministry and that allowed Him to handle the lies said about Him, the attempts made upon His life, the unfair and unjust treatment He had to undergo.

MAT 9:34 “He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.”
MAT 11:19 They said, “Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners!”
MAT 26:65 The high priest tore his robes, saying, “He has blasphemed!”

MAT 26:66 “He is deserving of death!”
MAR 3:21 “He has lost His senses.”
MAR 3:22 “He is possessed by Beelzebul”

MAR 3:30 “He has an unclean spirit.”
LUK 15:2 “This man receives prostitutes and eats with them.”
LUK 23:2 “We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar,”

LUK 23:5 - they accused Him of always stirring up trouble.
LUK 23:14 “This man is one who incites the people to rebellion”
JOH 7:12 “He leads the multitude astray.”
JOH 8:48 “You have a demon”

When was this power made available to you?

The day you had your very own “spiritual virgin birth,” the day you were born again and made brand new creatures without sin, JOH 3:3, 2CO 5:17,
Titus 3:5.

1JO 1:8 If we say [assert] that we have no sin nature, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth or doctrine is not in us.
1JO 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word [Bible doctrine] does not reside in us.

ROM 7:17 So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which indwells me.
ROM 7:20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not wish, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.

COL 1:22 - we are presented to Christ, before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach -
2CO 11:2 - we are called His pure virgin.

EPH 5:27 He loved us and laid down His life for us that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless.

LUK 4:29 - they tried to throw Him down a cliff.
JOH 8:59 - They took up stones to throw at Him;
JOH 5:18 - they were seeking to kill Him,

LUK 6:26 “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for in the same way their fathers used to treat the false prophets, [priests, and teachers].”
JOH 7:7 “The world cannot hate you; but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil.”

Fulfill the Father’s plan, glorify God in the angelic conflict, and do not let others hinder you from your calling and your personal sense of destiny.

LUK 14:18, business, house;
LUK 14:19, marriage;
LUK 14:26, parents, children, family, friends;
MAT 10:35, in-laws; your own life, lusts, desires, goals, aspirations, and dreams, etc.

LUK 6:26 “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for in the same way their fathers used to treat the false prophets.”

MAT 27:12 He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, [however,] He made no answer.
MAT 27:28 - they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.
MAT 27:29 They brutally forced a man-made crown of thorns on His head, and placed a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

MAT 27:30-31, They spit in His face, took the reed from His hand and beat Him on the face and head with it. And after they had mocked Him, they took His robe off and put His garments on Him, and led Him away to crucify {Him.}

MAT 27:39 those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads,
MAT 27:41 the religious leaders also mocked Him.
MAT 27:44 - the robbers who had been crucified with Him were casting insults upon Him.

1. The procession arrived at Golgotha, MAT 27:33.
2. He was offered cheap wine and gall, which He refused, MAT 27:34.

They were going to put a spear in our Lord’s side to kill Him before the SABBATH, which, by way, He was Lord of in
MAT 12:8 “For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”

The cheap wine plus the narcotic in it would destroy the clearness of His mind, and for that reason Jesus Christ refused to drink.

In order to bear our sins Jesus refused something that would have eased the pain.

Because it was the Father’s plan and the Son’s purpose to bear our sins in His own body on the tree, 1PE 2:24, and therefore He absolutely refused to do anything that might hinder His ministry or His mission.

Instead, Jesus is going to drink the cup of our sins rather than something that would deaden the pain.

3. The next chronological event on the cross: Jesus was crucified between the two thieves, LUK 23:32-33, followed by the first cry on the Cross, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do,” LUK 23:34.

4. Next, the soldiers gambled for His clothes, as was the Roman custom, MAT 27:35-36.
5. The Jews began to mock Him, MAT 27:39-43.
6. The thieves on the cross began to rail upon Him, but eventually, one of them believed,
LUK 23:39-43.

7. The second cry was uttered -
LUK 23:43 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

8. Seeing to the care of His family, the third cry, “Woman, behold thy son,” JOH 19:26-27.
9. At exactly 12:00 noon, darkness covered the earth, MAT 27:45.
10. The fourth cry, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani,” MAR 15:34.

11. The fifth cry, “I thirst.” Christ thirsted that we might never thirst, JOH 19:28.
12. The sixth cry, “It is finished,” JOH 19:30.
13. The seventh cry, “Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit,” LUK 23:46.

14. After this the Lord dismissed His spirit, MAT 27:50.
