Hello Audiences! Welcome to RTGF. We are going to present to you the “living tabernacle”. It is an extract from a new book; “The Riddle” – 2021 release. Secret things revealed belong to man (Deut. 29:29). We do not require faith to know if Jesus was created, or not. God has revealed Him as the mystery to man (Col. 1:26). This is Episode 5 of the ROOT Series – Titled: “Know the absolute truth and enter by the door (who is Jesus) before He is shut (Rev, 3:7-8)”. If you do not know the truth, and live in agreement nothing else will make you free (John 8:32).
My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe –Teacher and Author.
Our topic for today is: An insight into the mystery of who Jesus is.
Aim: To prove Jesus is: living Tabernacle, fully God and fully Man; not created.
(Continue next with Insert – page 3).
(Cont’d after Insert) – Ministry of Jesus; the Living Tabernacle.
Scripture revealed Him as: the Word, God, and the Son of God, and a Savior. Also man added He is the second person of God; which is lie. In His earthly ministry He taught and preached the message of the kingdom of God. Lastly the custodians of the Law of Moses falsely accused, tried and condemned Him to death. The body of Jesus known according to the flesh bore the sins of man when He became the sins man committed in the past (1Pet. 2:24). Finally He was crucified and buried. The Spirit of God changed the body of flesh to a glorious body and resurrected as born again (Mt. 27-28). He is our example of who has been born again (Col. 1:18).
On earth and in heaven The Trio God dwell bodily in Him (Col. 2:9). It testifies to scripture that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (2Cor.5:19-21).
Scripture stated that by the sacrifice of Jesus God forgave man sins he committed before (Rom. 3:25); A weighty statement. It means to henceforth obey God and live for righteousness, and not to obey man (Acts 5:29-31). Doing so is to fight the good fight of the faith (1Tim. 6:12). It debunks claim of some to be life righteousness of God, or born again with sinful body instead of by faith in Christ and living it. If no body made without hands man cannot be born again. Scriptures around pardon interpreted contrary to Jesus’ Cross denies scripture; and is saying Jesus died in vain. Sacrifice of Jesus saved humanity from slavery of Satan. It reconciled man to God (Rom. 5:11). He gives born again spirit to believers.
The spirit is for him to begin the race of life with the hope to attain perfection.
The man born again.
It is after fruitful race to the end man will be wholly born again into the new earth (Rev. 21:1, 14). It is in the similar manner The Spirit of God changed the body of flesh of Jesus to glorious boy the Holy Spirit, if He dwells in you, will give life to your mortal body (Rom. 8:11). This is because Jesus and man had same body according to the flesh. Therefore both suffered and died and resurrected together (Rom. 6:3-11). Hence as He is, so are we in this world ((1John 4:17). So we are to regard one another according to the spirit (2cor. 5:16). However earthly body of a person must first die. Only then he is given a new and glorious body to be a member of body of Christ, or of fully born again man in Christ (Phil. 3:21). For now the man totally born again in Christ symbolizes mankind. Individuals who believe in Christ live by faith in hope of attaining the stature of perfect man in Christ. Salvation of own soul brings an end to one’s faith (1Pet. 1:9). It means perfect man does not live by faith. So we must not be self-righteous about who we are in earthly body.
Risk of Self-righteousness and Account for life lived.
Faith is substance of what is hoped for; the evidence is not seen (Heb. 11:1). So it is needless to parade self in mortal body as born again. It remains for us to imitate Jesus and to endure to the end according to the flesh. We must believe Jesus and love one another like He loved God and man. So we will give account before Christ of our labor according to the flesh (2Cor. 5:10). It is similar to what those now in prison would do (1Pet. 4:2-6).
Task Christ gave to man.
But before He ascended to heaven, He gave gifts to men – Some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and some teachers. Then assigned to them specific tasks;
“to equip the Saints for ministry, for edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:11-13)”.
The Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.
In heaven the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully Man. If we say we believe and do ungodly things in the flesh and not repent, it would mean we did not truly believe in the first place. Only men who abide in Jesus truly believe. Only them no one can snatch away from Jesus’ hands (John 10:28). Jesus is the visible God and the Great High Priest before the Throne of God the Father (Heb. 4:14-16). He sits on the right hand of God the Father (Mt. 22:44). He is our Intercessor (Rom. 8:34). He expresses His intersession daily by grace (Eph. 2:8).
So let us reason together: Are you doing the tasks Christ assigned? Do you walk in the spirit and not fulfilling the desires of the flesh (Gal. 5:16-17). The one message which reflects kingdom of God is of the cross of Jesus, and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). By it the world have been crucified to man, and those who truly believe in Jesus to the world (Gal. 6:14). Is it what you preach?
Those who obey Him speak with one voice and walk in unity (1Cor. 1:10). As a result all have one heart and one soul and freely share their riches (Acts 4:32-37). In your evaluation, do you know which direction and destination you are heading? Is it the wide and Broadway way which leads to destruction, or the narrow and challenging way which leads to life? (Mt. 7:1-14). Make amend if necessary. Do it now!
What we perceived as real heresy is to preach and teach messages different from scripture. It is not to differ from doctrines and regulations established by man. So biblical Knowledge is essential to live life of salvation. If all you know about Jesus is not by revelation knowledge directly or indirectly, you have not known Him. Rather you are believing in a lie. Jesus had same human attributes Adam without sin had. But Adam enslaved his soul to the serpent in the Garden of Eden. To save the soul once created in the image and likeness of God required sacrifice of a soul without sin who no man could provide (Ps. 49:6-8). So God prepared the soul of Jesus, as an offering for sin (Is. 53:10). At God appointed time Jesus was born on earth for the purpose of saving man (Lk. 2:1-7). That whoever believes in Him should be saved, and not perish; but have everlasting life.
