Glory

That He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish. -Ephesians 5:27 The Lord desires to have a church that is "glorious." What does it mean to be glorious? What is glory? It's quite ironic to me that... Continue Reading →

The Lord’s Recovery

He said to them, 'Moses, because of your hardness of heart, allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it has not been so.' Matthew 19:8 Due to the upcoming 500th anniversary of the reformation (marked by Martin Luther's nailing of his 95 theses to the door above which I got to see!),... Continue Reading →

Two Trees

And out of the ground Jehovah God cause to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, as well as the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. -Genesis 2:9 Why were there two trees in the garden... Continue Reading →

The Spirit

Many believers like myself sense a lack in Christendom regarding the third distinction in the trinity, the Spirit. We are apt to pray towards our Father who art in heaven. We are especially knowledgable and appreciative of the Son of God who became a man to die for our sins. Yet, when referring to the third... Continue Reading →

The Corporate God-man

In my last two posts, I both laid out a christology that exemplified the divinity and humanity of Christ and described the process of reproduction that He undergoes in each of His believers to make them the same as He is. In short, the Son of God became a man, thus becoming a God-man; and... Continue Reading →

The God-men

In my last post, I tried to give a proper Christology. I attempted to magnify this wonderful God-man, who is both fully God and fully man. Eventually, I wrote about all that our Lord has done for us. He has assumed humanity, lived it perfectly, died for the unrighteous, resurrected as a glorified man (thus... Continue Reading →

The God-Man

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1 "Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God a treasure to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming in the likeness of men"...

The Principle of Incarnation

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1 In Genesis 1 and 2, God acts as God. He is sovereign, independent, and completely in control. "God created," "God said," "God formed," are all evidence of this. After Genesis 2, you'd be hard pressed to find this sort of direct intervention in the Bible.... Continue Reading →

The Economy of God (II)

In my last post, I wrote about God's Economy, which is His household administration of dispensing Christ as the Spirit as grace to all who make up the House of God, which is the Church (1 Tim. 3:15). The view I tried to presented was very grand and overarching, so I hope to hone in here on... Continue Reading →
