Doctrine of the Royalty of Jesus Christ, Part 1.
Tuesday, March 20, 2001
“my beloved brethren” distinguish between the believers of this dispensation, the Church-age, and the believers of all other dispensations.
Objective – to indicate some of the privileges that belong to us as members of the royal family.
“beloved brethren” – used as title for TLJC and designed to make you conscious of the fact that you are a member of the royal family of God.
MAT 3:17 “And behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
MAT 17:5 “While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!”
He exhaled both physical life and spiritual life, being in exactly the same status that Adam was at creation.
JOH 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only born Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
There was love for Jesus Christ, agapetos, the only loved, the beloved of the Father.
God the Father was giving the greatest of all presents, the Savior, the only One Who could save the world.
God the Holy Spirit also took us and entered us into union of with Christ, seated at the right hand of the Father.
Something was added in the Church-age being entered into union with Christ.
Christ had not been resurrected, He had not ascended, and He was not seated at the right hand of God the Father.
