BUT he was also the Son of Man.  

The prophecy declared : "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  



"... when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made  under the law," Gal 4:4


  • A woman who was a sinner.  

  • The woman  declares: "And my spirit  hath rejoiced in God my Saviour" Luke 1:47  

  • He was made of a woman who was a sinner with a sinful, fallen human nature 

  • A woman who had sinned and needed salvation, a woman who rejoiced in God her Saviour

  • He came to redeem them who were "under the law".  This woman was one of them  

  • And this woman passed to him her humanity, a humanity that was fallen and sinful

The good news of the gospel is that Jesus Christ did no sin despite partaking of His mother's sinful, fallen human nature. He is the only human being with a fallen human nature who did not commit a single sin even to the cross.  He did not allow his sinful human nature to express itself in the transgression of God’s law. 


Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

Christ is the only way to salvation. The disciple said: “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.” John 3:16,17 

But what does it mean to believe in Him, to “believeth in Him”? Christ said: “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:46-48


  • To believe in Christ is to receive and accept His word.  

  • It says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path”.

  • To receive the word is to not walk in darkness.

  • To believe in Christ is to accept his Word, to believe in His Word, to trust in what he says.

  • Christ said: “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.” John 6:63 


When you receive His word, you receive His Spirit, you receive Christ in an intangible form because the Word is Spirit. 


"God’s Holy educating Spirit is in His word.” COL 132.2   


And He is the Word. Hence to receive the Word is to receive the Spirit and to receive the Spirit is to receive Christ and to receive Christ, you receive His person and become "a partaker of the divine nature."

The Bible says:  

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


John 1:14 - "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."


IPeter 1:24 - "For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

  • Jesus is the Word

  • Jesus, the Word, was with God

  • Jesus, the Word, was God

  • His name is the Word of God - Rev 19:13

  • This Word was made flesh - John 1:14

  • He was made of corruptible flesh which is our flesh, like grass - 1Peter 1:24

  • Flesh like ours that withereth - 1Peter 1:24

  • Flesh like the flower that falleth away - 1Peter 1:24

  • He was made of the flesh of Mary which like the grass is fallen, sinful flesh that withereth - Luke 1:47


Flesh that “profiteth nothing”, Corruptible flesh, fallen flesh, sinful flesh which is man’s nature after the fall of Adam. The Word took on that sort of flesh and so the scripture says:  

“For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:” Romans 8:3



The law could not bring about righteousness. 

Why? Because it was weak through the flesh, in having to contend with the flesh, with weak, fallen, sinful flesh which on its own has transgressed the law, which on its own does not and cannot produce the righteousness of the law in us, which on its own does not walk after the Spirit and which on its own, minds the things of the flesh so that “…they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” Rom 8:8



Because it says: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:” Rom 8:13 And the only reason you will die is because you live in sin “For the wages of sin is death…”  Sin cannot please God and to live after the flesh is to live in sin, to continue in sin and the end of thereof is death. And it does not please God that you should die. He pleads: “For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn [yourselves], and live ye.” Eze 18:32   


How then shall we who are of the flesh escape the wages of sin for it says, “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”?  

We must be born again, “…Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 because, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:6,7 because “…they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” And “… if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:” If you live your life according to the flesh, according to the carnal nature  you were born with, you will die because that flesh on its own cannot keep the law of God and  will continue to transgress the law and to transgress the law is to none other than sin and the wages of sin is death so  that, that flesh will perish.



We are commanded, “…Ye must be born again.” How? “being born again…by the word of God which liveth and abideth forever…” (1Peter 1:23)  In order to live we must eat. When we were  “born” the first time, we forsook the Lord and drank out of broken cisterns, cisterns we hewed ourselves which could not hold water (Jer 2:13) and became thirsty bereft of the Spirit. We ate our own bread and wore our own apparel. We spent “ for that which is not bread…” Isaiah 55:2  


But what sort of food do we need as newborns, as born again Christians? -  “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jer 15:16. We are to eat the Word in order to live. We are to desire as newborn babes “…the sincere milk of the word..” And what is the Word – it is Spirit: John 6:63. And the Spirit is divine. In partaking of the Word, we partake of the Spirit and in partaking of the Spirit we partake of the divine nature and so the victory is assured as verily as God has said, “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zech 4:6


Christ therefore took on our flesh, sinful flesh, flesh which is as the grass that withereth, flesh which is the flower of the grass that withereth which falleth away, flesh which “profiteth nothing”, sinful, fallen flesh.


He took this sort of flesh at great risk to himself and us. If He had sinned we would have been lost. He would have been lost. The Father would have lost His Son. Can we appreciate how serious and risky it was for Him to partake of our flesh, our fallen human nature with its strong natural inclination to sin?  


It is sinful, fallen human flesh that Jesus took upon his divinity. In connecting his divinity with our weak humanity, he became a force to reckon with and overcame temptation in that humanity and did no sin, so may it be with us as we connect our sinful human nature with His divine nature, we become partakers of the divine nature and like Him, victorious in all things. - 2Peter 1:4,  Phil 4:13 

  • He partook of our fallen flesh that we might partake of his divine nature

  • He was made to be sin for us who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God...

  • He was born again into this earth that we might be born again

He was not fire proof friends, Christ took our nature in its fallen condition with all its weaknesses and won the victory on our behalf. He is truly our saviour. We can thank God for sending his Son.


May God bless you
