This is a Bible study on JESUS Exists.     Click here for a printable Bible Study Guide.

 

And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.  And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.  Mark 9:7-8

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.  1 John 5:20

 


Please Note:  The Scriptures tell us that there is not enough room in the whole universe to hold all books it would take to tell all about the life, the miracles, the wonder of Jesus. 

No website can contain all of the wonder of Jesus, the work of Jesus, the miracles of Jesus.  We answer questions in this website to ignite a fire in your own spirit to dig deeper in God's word, to encounter Jesus personally, to establish and grow a relationship with Jesus yourself by knowing more.

It is the purpose of this website to point everyone to Jesus, direct them to seek Jesus, encourage others to know Jesus, and to ultimately have a lasting saving relationship with the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the risen Christ, the Son of God - Christ Jesus our LORD.


 

 


JESUS Exists

 

 

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Hebrews 13:8

 

The existence of Jesus has been documented in the Holy Scriptures as well as in secular research books.  No one has ever disproven the existence of Jesus.

 

Jesus exists whether you are I believe in Him or not.  Jesus does not require our knowledge of Him to exists.

 

Halleluiah !! Jesus exists.

 

 

 


Is Jesus alive today?

Yes, Jesus Christ lives today and alive for evermore !!

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  Revelation 1:18

 


How long has Jesus existed?

 

Jesus is before all things

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  Colossians 1:13-17

Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  John 17:24

 

Jesus existed before Abraham

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.  John 8:58

 

All things were created by Jesus

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  Colossians 1:16

By Christ Jesus all things exist.

 

 


Where was Jesus before He came to earth?

We know through the Holy Scriptures that Jesus was before the world was (John 17:5); Jesus was sent from God in Heaven (John 7:16); Jesus came down from God the Father in Heaven; Jesus came to earth from above (John 8:23); Jesus cometh from Heaven (John 3:31); Jesus descended to earth (Ephesians 4:7-10); Jesus came out from God (John 16:27); Jesus came from God the Father and returned to God the Father (John 16:28); Jesus came down from Heaven and returned to Heaven (John 13:3, 16:28);

Jesus is eternal.  Jesus has always existed.  Jesus has always been with God the Father, because Jesus and the Father are one (John 10:30; 1 John 1:2).

Because Jesus was with the Father, He was able to come forth out from the Father above.

 

Jesus came from Heaven above

Jesus said, "I am from above".

And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.  John 8:23

 

Jesus was before the world

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

 

Jesus is above all

He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.  John 3:31

 

Jesus existed before the earth began

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

 

Jesus descended out from God from Heaven

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)  Ephesians 4:7-10

Jesus descended from the Kingdom of Heaven to the earth, to become the Son of man.

 

Jesus came out from God

Jesus Himself told us that He came out from God, only God can come out from God.

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  John 16:27

 

Jesus came from God

The word of God tells us all that, Jesus came from God AND went to God; Jesus proceeded forth from God.

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  John 3:2

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;  John 13:3

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  John 8:42

I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  John 16:28

 

Jesus came down from Heaven

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  John 3:13

For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.  John 6:33

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.  John 6:38

The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.  John 6:41

And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?  Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.  It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.   Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.  Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.  I am that bread of life.  John 6:42-48

This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.  John 6:50

I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.  John 6:51

This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.  John 6:58

 

Jesus is the Perfect Gift from God above to all mankind, that came down from Heaven above, from the Father of Lights.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.  James 1:17

 

The Lord from Heaven

The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.  1 Corinthians 15:47

 

God manifest in the flesh

The bodily form of God in the flesh is Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  The fulness of the Godhead bodily is Christ Jesus the Lord.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.  Colossians 2:6,9

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.  1 Timothy 3:16

And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.  1 John 3:5

 

God manifest Himself the flesh as Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin; He is Holy God, perfect and without sin.

God gifted us with Himself in a physical form like that of mankind, as Jesus Christ.

The Son of God and the God the Father are one.  The Son of God has always been one with the Father.

Why did God chose to manifest Himself in flesh like ours?  Because He loves us, because He promised eternal life to all who believe in Him, because this was His perfect plan of redemption for mankind, and because this was His perfect will.

God was manifest in the flesh, but this did not limit God.  God was and has always been God, and will be God for all eternity.

 


Why must I believe that Jesus came from Heaven above?

In order to believe in Jesus, I must believe all that was said in the Holy Scriptures about Him.  Partial faith is unbelief.

Belief in God is believing in all that He says that He is (Hebrews 11:6).

He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.  John 3:31

Believing the truth of God, that Jesus came out from God above, Jesus came down from Heaven to earth, establishes who Jesus is and who Jesus is not.

The Scriptures are clear, that without believing on the Son, Jesus Christ, you will not see God, and you cannot receive everlasting life, because eternal life is given only to those who believe on the Son for their salvation.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.  John 3:36

Jesus is the only one who has descended from Heaven and ascended back again to Heaven (Ephesians 4:10).

The same Saviour of the world, the Lord who came down out of Heaven, who descended from Heaven, and who ascended back up into Heaven, will come again one day soon, and only those who believe on Him will see Him, and be resurrected to new life with Him for eternity.


Where is Jesus Christ now?

Jesus is on the right hand side of God the Father in Heaven, waiting to return back to earth to claim His own.  Jesus is our mediator and advocate.

Jesus abides in the hearts of all true believers.

Shortly after Jesus Christ offered Himself (Hebrews 9:14), once for all (Hebrews 10:10), as a sacrifice for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2), Jesus freely laid down His life for us (1 John 3:16), Jesus shed His blood so we could receive remission and forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 1:7), Jesus died on the cross (Philippians 2:8), Jesus destroyed the works of the devil on the cross (1 John 3:8), Jesus finished His work (John 19:30), Jesus raised Himself from death and the grave (Acts 13:30), so by believing in Jesus we might receive everlasting life (John 3:16), Jesus ascended to Heaven and now reigns forever more; and, Jesus sits on the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2), Jesus is in the presence of God in Heaven (Hebrews 9:24).

 

Jesus Christ is in Heaven

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  John 3:13

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)  Ephesians 4:7-10

 

Jesus sits on the right hand of God the Father in Heaven

After Christ Jesus purged our sins by shedding His blood on the cross, when He was crucified on the cross, He said "It is finished" bowed His head and gave up the ghost (John 19:30), then Jesus sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High, with God the Father in Heaven.

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;  Hebrews 1:3

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Colossians 3:1

 

Jesus is in the presence of God in Heaven for US

Christ Jesus is in the presence of God in Heaven for us, for our reconciliation to God.

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:  Hebrews 9:24

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  2 Corinthians 5:18

 

Jesus is the advocate between man and God the Father

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.  1 John 2:1-2

 


Was Jesus created?

God is self-existent.  God was NOT created.  God has no creator.   God has no mother. 

God was before all things.  God created all thing, but no one or nothing created God.  God existed before all things.   In the beginning God... (Genesis 1:1).  God did NOT create God, God was.

Jesus Christ was NOT created, the Son of God was manifested, God was manifest in the flesh to destroy the works of the devil (1 Timothy 3:16).

God sent His Son to earth to sacrifice His perfect sinless life for the salvation of mankind.

The miracle of the birth of Jesus in human form was by the Power of God alone.  God is able to do all things (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10;27), even manifest Himself in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16).

The Holy Spirit conceived baby Jesus (Matthew 1:20) inside the host womb of a virgin named Mary (Luke 2:21).  Jesus existed before Mary.  Jesus existed before He was manifested in the flesh (Colossians 1:16-17).

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.  1 Timothy 3:16

 

By the power of God, Jesus was able to be manifested in the flesh, born from a woman, so that Jesus could take on flesh and humanity, for the sole purpose to save all mankind from sin and death.

The word of God states that Jesus was manifest in the flesh, NOT created. 

Jesus came forth from God, out from God, Jesus is from God sent from Heaven above.

And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.  John 8:23

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  John 8:42

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  John 16:27-28

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  John 17:8

 

Jesus came from Heaven above to earth below.  Jesus was sent to earth to be the Saviour of the world.

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.  And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:38-40

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.  Matthew 10:40

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  John 5:24

But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.  And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.  And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.  John 5:36-38

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:44

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  John 6:57

 

Jesus was before Abraham, Jesus was before the foundation of the world, Jesus has always been of God, in God and with God.  Jesus was NOT created. 

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.  John 8:58

 

Jesus is the only begotten of the Father, Jesus Christ is the Word.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.  John 1:14,17

 

The Word is God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.   All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  John 1:1-4

 

Jesus came down from Heaven, Jesus was fashioned like man, conceived by the Holy Ghost inside the womb of a virgin, born as a man in the flesh.  This is the miracle and mystery of God, to bring God into this world as man, in the flesh to take on life as man, to preach the gospel of salvation to the world, to take on the sins of the whole world, shed His blood on the cross as the final sacrifice, once for all, for all the sins of all the people on this earth, to be crucified on the cross in order to reconcile us to God, to die and be buried in a tomb, to raise up from death and the grave to resurrection of new life, ascend into Heaven, to prepare a place for us, and to come back to earth one day for all His own.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.  Genesis 1:26-27

God said, Let us make man in our image.  God created man in His own image.  In the image of God created He them, male and female.

The will of God is for us to obtain salvation through faith in Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:9).  The will of Jesus is for us all to be one, as He and His Father are one, as the Father is in the Son, and as the Son is in the Father, that we may be one in Them, that we may be one, even as They are one.

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  John 17:21-23

God has always beenGod has always existed.  God has existed as these three (1 John 5:7):  Father, Son (the Word), and Holy Ghost.

We are baptized in the name of God, in the name of them who created us, in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.  We profess our salvation to the world through water baptism, in the name of God who saved us from sin and death, in the names of God who gives us eternal life.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Matthew 28:19

We see in the first verse of the Word of God, that "In the beginning God...".  (Genesis 1:1).  God existed before all things.  There has not been a time when God has not existed.  This is the foundation, the fundamental knowledge of God, to believe that He is ALL that He says that He is.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  Hebrews 11:6

 

God alone holds all power, there is only one God Almighty, there is only one God, one Lord God who hold power over heaven and earth, the Godhead is in the fullness of Christ Jesus, the Son of God AND the fulness of God is in the Father AND the fulness of God is in the Holy Ghost, each having their separate functions, AND function completely, fully together as ONE GOD.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.  1 John 5:7

How simple, God explains Himself!  God tells us there are three, three that bear record in Heaven of God, and these three are one God. 

NO other three in the word of God are one, just these three are ONE GOD - the Father, the Word (the Son), and the Holy Ghost.

There is no doubt that Jesus is the Word, because God tells us in His scriptures that the Word is the only begotten of the Father, His Beloved, Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  The scriptures tell us all that the Word was God from the very beginning.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  John 1:1

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  John 1:14

 

There is only one begotten Son of God the Father, Jesus Christ our Lord.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  1 John 4:9-10

 

God alone gives eternal life to people.  No one else but God can give eternal life to anyone. 

Everlasting life is given by God alone.  No one else has the power to give life except God.  Salvation is the gift of God, given freely by God to all people who by faith believe in Jesus Christ as their salvation.  Without believing in Jesus for eternal life, no one can receive eternal life, because life is in God the Son, Jesus Christ.

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.  1 John 5:12

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  John 1:3-4

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:  John 1:10-12

 

God gave His life for all people, Jesus Christ died, shed His blood on a cross and rose from the grave to life, so that we all might be saved from sin and death, and through believing in Him might receive everlasting life in His Kingdom.

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.  1 John 3:16

There is NOT eternal life in any other, only Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  Eternal life is not found in any other way, or through any person here on earth, or purchased by any means, or gained through any works we might do, believing in Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life in the Kingdom of God.

God created Adam, the first man from God.

Jesus was begotten of God, conceived by the Holy Ghost, fashioned as man, came out from God, not created.

The word of God tells us all that Jesus existed before our world began.  He was before the foundations of this earth. 

God was manifest in the flesh, fashioned as man to save the world from sin and death (1 John 3:8), God manifested Himself in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), in the likeness of man, fashioned in the image of man (Philippians 2:8), through the entrance into the human race through the vessel of a woman, in order to have the appearance of a human man.

No man, no human being could destroy sin and death, only God can destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

The earthly body of Jesus was God manifested in the flesh, not created.

Jesus always existed.  Jesus has always been God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  John 1:1

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  John 1:14

The scriptures tell us all that the Word was God, from the very beginning of all time.  AND the word was made flesh.

The Word is God AND the Word was made flesh.  God manifested Himself in the image of man, just for us, for the human race, so that we could be saved from sin and death and through faith in the manifestation of God, which is the Son of God, Jesus Christ, receive everlasting life.

Incarnation is the union of divinity with humanity in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16).  God in the flesh was necessary and the will of God.

God was manifest in the flesh, not the other way around, flesh was NOT manifested into God (1 Timothy 3:16).

God purposed that Jesus, His only begotten Son, would take on the form of humanity (Hebrews 2:14), manifested in human flesh, for our sakes, so that mankind could be reconciled to God the Father through His Son, and so that mankind might be saved through faith in God the Son.

The baby Jesus did NOT grow up to be God, He was already God.  God put on humanity (Hebrews 2:14), as the Son of man, Jesus in the flesh, so that He as the Christ could die for the sins of the world, and so that mankind might be saved (John 3:17).

For God so loved the world, that He sent His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

 


Why was God manifest in the flesh as Jesus?

 

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.  1 Timothy 3:16

Why was it necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus?  Why did Jesus need to come to earth in human form?

God took on the nature of man, not angels, so that He Himself would suffer as a human being, so He is able to succour (help) them that are tempted, because He Himself was tempted as a human being.

God was fashioned as man, manifest in the flesh as the Son of man, so that He could sacrifice Himself for the sins of all the people of all the world, so that He could sacrifice His life so that we might live.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.  For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as mankind, so that He could take part in human suffering and be a worthy sacrifice for the sins of this world.

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus, so that He could die on the cross for the sins of the world, that through His death on the cross He could destroy death, and destroy the works of the devil, and resurrect Himself from death and the grave so that we might receive eternal life in the Kingdom of God for eternity.

God was manifested in the flesh so that He also Himself could take part of flesh and blood as we are, and that through His death He could destroy the devil.

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  Hebrews 2:14

God was manifest in the flesh, fashioned as a man, so that He could show the mercy and love of God, being obedient to death, taking on the sins of all the people of all the world, even the horrific death of the cross, so that we might live.

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Philippians 2:8

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh, and not as an angel, so that fashioned as a man, He could walk among us here on earth, as a human being.

For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.  Hebrews 2:16

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus, taking on the seed of Abraham, in order to be like us, so that He could be an example to us in the things pertaining to God, show us the way to God through Himself, and to make reconciliation for the sins of all the people of all the world who might believe on Him as Lord and Saviour.

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the form of human beings, fashioned like man, in order to make reconciliation for the sins of all the people of this world.

Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.  Hebrews 2:17

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus, so that He could suffer like us being tempted, but not yielding to the temptation, knowing firsthand the problems of man, so that He is able to help us, when we are tempted.

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.  Hebrews 2:18

It was necessary for God to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus, in order to take on the appearance of man, to take the image of man, to be like man, and ultimately offer Himself as the sacrifice for the sins of the world.

God was manifested in the flesh as Jesus, in order to be like us, so we could understand God.   In order to suffer and be tempted like man, like us, and to help us when we are tempted.

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.  Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.  For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.  Hebrews 2:14-18

 

God was manifest in the flesh as Jesus to abolish sin and death and bring life and immortality to all who will believe in Him for their salvation.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.  1 Timothy 3:16

But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:  2 Timothy 1:10

 

Why was God manifested in the flesh as Jesus?  To make a way - a path - for us to God.  To save us from death, to take away our sins, even though Jesus had no sin in Him.

And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.  1 John 3:5

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.  2 Corinthians 5:21

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.  Matthew 1:21

 

God was manifest in the flesh, the Son of God was manifested to destroy sin and the works of the devil.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

 

Jesus suffered for our sins to bring us to God Jesus came from Heaven above, down to the lower parts of this world, so that HE might bring us to God.

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:  1 Peter 3:18

 

Jesus Christ, the Son of God,  is the love of God manifested toward us.    Jesus Christ is God's own personal love gift to us, that we through Jesus we might live.   God gifted us with His only begotten Son, so that we might live through Him.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  1 John 4:9

 


Why did Jesus come to us as a child, instead of a man?

 

The perfect plan of God

The perfect plan of God was to manifest Himself in the flesh of mankind. 

By coming to earth to share in the flesh and blood struggles of humanity.  God placed Himself on this earth in human form to become a living sacrifice for all mankind, to purge our sins with His blood, the only sacrifice sufficient to save all mankind.

Jesus was born into this world as a man child to:

  • Bring glory to God the Father
  • Fulfill prophesy in the written Word of God
  • To be a propitiation for the sins of all mankind (1 John 2:2, 4:10)
  • To shed His blood on His cross at Calvary for the remission and forgiveness of all sins (Romans 3:25)
  • To take away our sins forever
  • To free us from the bondage of sin and death
  • Make a way for mankind by faith in Jesus' blood to God
  • Make a way for mankind to receive eternal life
  • Heal the sick and give comfort and hope to a lost world
  • Show us the way to the Father
  • Become a mediator between God the Father and mankind

 

Bring Glory to God the Father

All things are to be done to the Glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).

And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Philippians 2:11

 

Fulfill the Word of God

The word of God stated in the Old Testament that a child would be born, from the line of David, the Son of Abraham.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6

God promises us in His word that ALL His word will be fulfilled.

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Matthew 5:18

 

Propitiation for our sins

Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  Romans 3:25

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.  1 John 2:2

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  1 John 4:10

 

Shed His blood for the remission of our sins

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.  Matthew 26:28

 

To take away all sins once for all

By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  Hebrews 10:10

 

Give victory over sin and death

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians 15:57

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  Romans 8:2

 

Make a way for us to God

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  Romans 5:10

 

Give mankind eternal life

As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  John 17:2

 

Heal the sick and give comfort and hope to a lost world

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  John 3:17

 

Show us the way to God the Father

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:  1 Peter 3:18

 

Make Himself the mediator between God the Father and mankind

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  1 Timothy 2:5

 


Jesus made a way out of sin and death for all mankind.  Without Jesus we would all be separated from God for all eternity.

God is omniscient - He knows all things.  God knew that for mankind to believe in Him that we must see Him, so God sent Himself to earth to become God in the flesh - Jesus the Son of God and the Son of man.  God's glorious plan was to make a way for mankind to be reconciled to Himself. 

We, man, would, nor ever could, be the perfect sacrifice for all the sin of all of mankind - but God could  God alone, only God Himself could be the perfect sacrifice for all the sin of all the people of all the world.  So God in His infinite wisdom and power made a way for us - mankind - to escape sin and death - by the death of His only begotten Son - Jesus the Christ, Jesus the Savior of the world, the Lord of Lords, the King of kings, the mighty God, the Prince of peace, the King of all glory.

 


The perfect will of God is for all people to come to salvation through Christ Jesus.

 

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.  John 3:15-18
