Point 3. The uniqueness of Jesus Christ as a supreme court judge.

He is the God-man, undiminished deity and true humanity in one person forever.

In the hypostatic union, the two natures of our Lord Jesus Christ are united without transfer of attributes, without loss or diminishing of the attributes of one to the other.

This means that the attributes of deity and the attributes of the humanity of Christ in hypostatic union adhere to their corresponding natures.

Divine essence is not changed by the hypostatic union. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, Heb 13:8.

Prin: To take from Jesus Christ a single attribute of His deity would destroy His deity.

“Well didn’t He have to not function in His humanity so that He could become an example to us and not His deity.?”

“Yes, that’s true but meanwhile when He did not provide for His human nature to provide for Himself, He still was using His deity to hold the universe together, Heb 1:3.”

Second prin-To take from Jesus Christ a single attribute of His humanity would destroy His humanity.

Phi 2:9 therefore also God highly exalted Him [this is the session and TLJC as the supreme court judge], and bestowed on Him a royal title which is above every royal title,

Phi 2:10 that at the exalted title of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth,

Phi 2:11 and that every tongue should confess or acknowledge that Jesus Christ is [Kurios or Jehovah] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The secret of our Lord’s greatness in His humanity: “He humbled Himself.”

Prin: While bearing our sins on the cross, He did so from His humanity by applying the maximum doctrine in His soul and using the problem solving devices.

He was filled with the Holy Spirit while bearing our sins as He had been from birth, Heb 9:14.

He maintained His perfection while bearing our sins because He used the metabolized doctrine in His soul. He did not use His deity to sustain himself while bearing our sins.

His deity could only condemn sin. The greatest function of the supreme court of heaven was the judgment that took place on the cross.

In the fulfillment of the Father’s plan for the incarnation, certain attributes of our Lord’s deity were not used. – This means that our Lord voluntarily restricted the use of certain divine attributes while living among men and their human limitations.

Certain divine attributes were active at all times–holding the universe together, Col 1:16-17; Heb 1:3.

Prin: In His glorified state, the humanity of Christ resides at the right hand of the Father, and God the Father, therefore, has given to the glorified state of Christ all function of judgment.

Point 4. The Divine Qualification of Jesus Christ as a Supreme Court Judge.

Jesus Christ, as judge, is eternal God. Therefore, He is perfectly qualified to function as a justice of the supreme court of heaven.

As God, Jesus Christ has perfect integrity or holiness.

Jesus Christ judges on the basis of His perfect divine essence on the one hand, and on the basis of His perfect resurrected humanity on the other hand.

Since the integrity of our Lord Jesus Christ is both His deity and His humanity,

and since both are beyond reproach, and since the omniscience of God knows every fact in every case, and since His legal decisions are made in perfect and eternal wisdom,

our Lord Jesus Christ judges every case in perfect fairness, totally without prejudice or partiality.

Psa 55:22, “cast your burdens on the Lord, and he will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to fall apart.”

1Pe 5:7 “casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.”

You enter into faith-rest and leave all personal injustices, all slander, all maligning, all public lies, all other categories of vituperation and vilification, all unfairness in the hands of Jesus Christ as the supreme court of heaven.

The believer making his appeal must understand that he or she may be at fault, and may suddenly become the defendant because they have taken matters into their own hands.

Hypostatic Union = in the person of the incarnate Christ are two natures, inseparably united without mixture or loss of separate identity, without loss or transfer of properties or attributes, the union being personal and eternal.

In the hypostatic union, the two natures of our Lord Jesus Christ are united without transfer of attributes, without loss or diminishing of the attributes of one to the other.

This means that the attributes of deity and the attributes of the humanity of Christ in hypostatic union adhere to their corresponding natures.

Divine essence is not changed by the hypostatic union. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, Heb 13:8.

Certain attributes of our Lord’s deity were not used, = our Lord voluntarily restricted the use of certain divine attributes while living among men and their human limitations = Kenosis.

Certain divine attributes were active at all times–holding the universe together, Col 1:16-17; HEB 1:3.

HEB 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;

JOH 1:1-3, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

JOH 1:9   There was the true light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.

Prin: In His glorified state, the humanity of Christ resides at the right hand of the Father, and God the Father, therefore, has given to the glorified state of Christ all function of judgment.

Prin: The sinfulness of another believer directed toward you does not set a precedence for sinfulness in you.

You cannot be a legitimate plaintiff in the supreme court of heaven if you react from scar tissue in your soul or from garbage in your own subconscious.

The victim of injustice has two options: the faith-rest drill or reaction sins.

Eph 6:9   “and Christian] management, be doing the same things to them [Christian labor]; stop threatening [unjust treatment, bullying], knowing that both their Lord and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality [prejudice, favoritism] associated with Him.”

Prin: It is very important to have a soul filled with epignosis doctrine so that you can handle unjust treatment in the same manner that you handle fair treatment.

Point 5. In our doctrine deals with The Royal Family Honor Code is directly related to the Supreme Court of Heaven.

The word bless is eulogeite which is a pres-act-imp and it means to speak well of, to honor.

Persecute is the pres-act-part of dioko, which in the present tense, they habitually pursue after you, they persecute you, and the participle tells us that their purpose is to make you miserable and to persecute you.

If you react to unfair treatment with bitterness, resentment, hatred, antagonism, any form of arrogance or emotion, then Jesus Christ cannot act on your behalf as the supreme court judge and He must act against you.

Prin: Do not make someone else’s problem of treating you unfair your problem by getting out of fellowship and reacting.

Prin: Through the arrogance or emotional complex of sins, you have ruined your own case before the Lord.

You will pile coals on his head = refer to an ancient custom of giving coals to keep a fire going, or the mental pain and shame that takes place from being treated with integrity by another.

The absolute good includes the function of grace in the royal family honor code and putting on the breastplate of righteousness.

Prin: By feeding your enemy when he is hungry, the believer leaves hostility from others in the hands of the Lord.

prin: This is tantamount to dependence on the integrity of God rather than on revenge and retaliation.

Third prin: This is also the function of impersonal love. The royal family honor code never mandates the believer to stoop to the level of vindication, implacability, hatred, arrogance, or bitterness toward other believers.

Prin: The benefits of grace demand the function of grace.

In vs 21, revenge or retaliation is being overcome or conquered by evil.

Overcoming or conquering evil by means of the good (Rom 12:21) is the motivation of grace orientation and the procedure and policy of grace function in the royal family honor code.

  1. Grace orientation. [P.S.D. Nu 4] B. Impersonal love for all mankind. [P.S.D. Nu 7] C. Occupation with the person of Christ, [P.S.D. Nu 10].

Any reference to falsification, misrepresentation, fabrication, perjury, duplicity, fraud, perversion or distortion of the truth is a violation of the royal family honor code and must be given over to the supreme court of heaven.

Pronoeo which means to perceive beforehand, to think beforehand, and therefore an excellent description of learning the royal family honor code.
