He is, the I AM, in me!
He came to reveal himself to mankind. He came to reveal himself in each of us. He left heaven to show his self to us in each of us. He became flesh incarnate, he took on a body and was became just like us. He was not a super hero. He went through the same temptations we did. He was so average he had to be pointed out in a crowd for the pharasees. Nothing physically set him off.
The big difference was he knew his identity. HE KNEW his relation to God.
We were created in the likeness of God. Adam was a prototype, Jesus was the ultimate prototype. We were made in the same mold. We are joint heirs with Christ. Jesus knew his origin. Everything he did on earth was done in relationship to his identity with his father (God).
I am copy and pasting the verses below from a past post.
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.
For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.Now with that being said, we are sons and daughters of God. We are not adopted sons and daughters or black sheep im the family. Before the creation of the world it says he knew us.
Jesus moved and flowed out of identity. He did all out of a paradigm of following in his father’s ways.
New Living Translation
So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.
We share the same origin, we have the same father. We are not adopted, we are not the black sheep of the family. We are direct sons and daughters! I have had to shed my bad notions my garbage thoughts on this. I have always heard and used the wording of adopted sons and daughters, but have found that the wording of adoption.
He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,
The use of the word adoption here is not the typical western use. It is actually more along the lines of the Jewish barmitzva or coming of age.
His mandate was to rescue the human race from the regime of the law of performance and announce the revelation of the sonship in God.
To seal our sonship God has commissioned the spirit of sonship resonate the Abba echo in our hearts; and now in our innermost being we recognize him as our true and very dear Father.
Can you see how foolish it would be for a son to immediately participate in all the wealth of God’s inheritance which is yours because of Christ.
We were co-crucified, co-buried, and co-resurrected with Christ (in him). Jesus moved as a son not a servant or beggar, but as a son! We being sons and daughters need to walk in that same revelation. Your true identity, your original blueprint, your you, is based on the relation of sonship. He left heaven to reveal this for you!
That is all for now. …….
