9/12 Meet the Supernatural Jesus for your Boardroom

toomuch2Say Hello to the Supernatural part of Jesus of Nazareth

We met the supernatural Jesus at His baptism, the account of the trans-figuration, in the witness of others, in His healing and miracles and at His resurrection. We can only understand who Jesus really is from the perspective of the events after His death, resurrection and the continued revelations of the Holy Spirit. He is God come in the flesh as the only begotten Son of God.

1. Jesus’ words and God’s confirmation

Although Jesus did not make an explicit claim to say “I am God”, yet He claimed things for Himself that only God could claim (Mat. 16:17, John 2:16, 5:17, 6:27):

a. He said He would send His angels (Mat. 13:41, Luke 12:8-9, 15:10),

b. Many times, Jesus placed His own words above the OT: “You have heard it said …but I say to you ….”, as in Mat 5:21-22, 27-28,

c. He claimed to forgive sins, Mark 2:5-7, which only God could do,

d. He spoke about “God’s coming kingdom” as His as well as God’s,

e. Jesus claimed a role to judge the world in the future (Mat. 25:31-46),

f. He claimed to be “Lord of the Sabbath” (Mat. 12:3-8, Mark 2:27-28),

g. He declared His unusual relationship with Jehovah God, as ‘Father’. Jesus claimed to be one with the Father (John10:30, 14:7),

h. Jesus claimed pre-existence in God (John 8:58, 3:13, 14:2),

i. At trial he was charged with making Himself “the son of God”. His reply was that they would see Him sitting at God’s right hand (Mat. 26:64),j. Jesus talked about His power over death and life:

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live even through he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26)

k. He linked His work with that of the Father, making himself equal with God (John 5:18),

The conclusion from these passages is that Jesus understood Himself as equal with the Father. He possessed the right to do things, which only God has the right t

2. Jesus fulfilled ALL the Old Testament prophecies

3. He accepted names given to God and received worship

He used titles, which claimed His omnipotence, such as the Good Shepherd (John 10:11), the Way, Truth and Life (John 14:6). “You are the Christ, the son of the living God” (Mat. 16:16)

a. His openly seen in His ministry of healing and miracle

b. Even The spiritual realm recognised Jesus

c. Yet Jesus was fully human

4. Jesus had a human body from birth, conceived in the womb of a human mother, nourished prenatally as a baby. mind2Although birth was in unusual circumstances, the actual birth sounds human.

a. He grew as a child (Luke 2:40), and learned obedience (Heb. 5:8),

b. He learned a trade (Mark 6:3, Luke 3:23),

c. He experienced human temptation, but without sin (Mat. 4:11, Heb. 2:18, 4:15)

d. Jesus was a full human in every physical sense. He was subject to same physical limitations as all mankind. He experienced hunger (Mat. 4:2), thirst (John 19:28), weariness and need for sleep (John 4:6),

e. He had emotions. He could make decisions but relied on the Father for direction.

f. His physical body was injured with the spear (John 19:34). Jesus suffered physically and died as all humans do.

The facts of Christ’s life are relatively easy to pin down, but faith is required to see the supernatural. So the question come then: “Is He Lord of your Boardroom? Are you seeking to find the real Jesus?”
