THE REVELATION OF THE SONSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the spirit saith unto the churches. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting, get an understanding. We know by many infallible proofs that the Son is the Christ, The Eternal Spirit from heaven, and that He put on a human body and wrought many signs, wonders, and miracles here on earth pertaining to the Gospel. First there must be a rightly dividing of The Spirit coming from heaven which is the Son of man, the blood line that The Spirit used which was the Son of David; and that which pertaining to the manifestation of The Spirt, the Gospel through flesh and blood – The Son of God. We all have an outward man that perisheth, but if we die daily from the outward man our inward man is renewed day by day (2 Cor. 4:16). Now concerning Jesus Christ, there was an inward man – The Son of man; and an outward man – The Son of God. The inward man Jesus Christ according to The Spirit, who (“is before all things, and by him all things consist”, Col. 1:17) came down from heaven and the title of this man from heaven is called the Son of man (“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). It is the Son of man who came down and ascended back to where He was before, (“What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?”, John 6:62) and put on an outward man – the Son of God, which was born of Mary (“therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of the shall be called the Son of God”, Luke 1:35). We see here that the Holy Ghost called that which came from Mary’s womb the Son of God. Do not add or take away (Rev. 22:18,19). The bloodline according to the flesh that The Spirit used to manifest The Son to us was called the Son of David (Rom. 1:3, “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh”). Do not add or take away (Rev. 22:18,19).
INFALLIBLE PROOFS THAT THE TITLE SON OF MAN IS REFERRING TO THE SPIRIT
-Who is Lord? “For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.” – Matt. 12:8
-Who came 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
-Who was in the heart of the earth? “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” – Matt. 12:40
-Who rose the 3rd day? “The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. – Luke 9:22
-Who must be lifted up? “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up” – John 3:14
-Who is standing on the right hand of God? “I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.” – Acts 7:56
-Who is coming back? “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” – Mat. 24:44
Some men preach and teach that the Son of man and the Son of God are the same. “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.” – James. 3:15
So herein we contest that the Son of man is the Spirit from above, that the bloodline according to the flesh that He used was the Son of David, and that the manifestation of the Spirit in flesh and blood is and was the Son of God.
