And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.“ (John 12:49-50). “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.“ (John 14:10). “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:“ (Revelation 1:1). God the Father, Who's will was to be followed by Christ . “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.“ (John 5:30). “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). “The Father of glory“. What is the Glory - the Majesty of God. “Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.“ (1 Chronicles 29:11). “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. .. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.“ (Psalm 24:7, 10). “The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.“ (Psalm 29:3). “The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.“ (Psalm 93:1). “Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.“ (Psalm 104:1-5). “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.“ (Matthew 6:13). “And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,“ (Acts 7:2). “Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.“ (1 Corinthians 2:8). “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.“ (James 2:1). Jesus: the Glory of God Incarnate. In context with the previous statement (“the God of our Lord Jesus Christ“) the glory was (is) the incarnate Deity in Jesus Christ. The Incarnation of Christ. The majesty of God, the glory of God was (is) manifested in the person of Jesus Christ. “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.“ (2 Corinthians 4:4-6). “The glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ“ - in the very person of Jesus Christ was the manifestation of God's glory. God's holiness, God's righteousness, God's majesty, God's fullness was placed upon Christ and in Christ, in His very person. . He that was without sin could not sin because He was the glory of God in the flesh. Who is Christ? He is God made flesh; the glory of God made flesh! This is how He can be the only begotten Son of God. “Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.“ (Mark 12:6). “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.“ (John 1:18). “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). “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?“ (John 14:9). This is how He was set at the right hand of God the Father. “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,“ (Ephesians 1:20). “The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.“ (Psalm 110:1). “He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?“ (Matthew 22:43-45). “And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.“ (Mark 14:62). “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.“ (Mark 16:19). “For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.“ (Acts 2:34-36). “Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.“ (Acts 5:31). “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.“ (Acts 7:55-56). “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.“ (Romans 8:34). “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). “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). “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.“ (Hebrews 2:9). “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;“ (Hebrews 10:12). This is how He could be fully God and fully man. “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). “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.“ (1 John 4:2-3). “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.“ (2 John 1:7). “ Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.“ (Philippians 2:5-11). This is how He could pay our sin debt. . “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.“ (Isaiah 53:1-12). This is how He could be our intercessor. . “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.“ (Romans 8:34). “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.“ (Hebrews 7:25). “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). This is how He can be our High Priest that is touched with the feeling of our infirmities. “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.“ (Hebrews 4:14-15). “Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.“ (Hebrews 5:2). “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.“ (Isaiah 53:4-5). “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.“ (Philippians 2:7-8).
