Christ's Position

Daily Devotions:
by Christina Farris

Hebrews 1:1-3 KJV
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 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;

It is easy to see Jesus as Son of God, it the equality of God most struggle with. Yet when we speak of his equality with God the Father, we need to realize his position is right beside his Heavenly Father. However were did he come from. We know he came from virgin birth as a babe, but he was before human birth. In John 1:1 we see the word of God was from the beginning and the word was with God. Until our own words leave our mouth they are a part of us, so is God very word part of him before it becomes a prophetic spoken word. His Son fully part of him before he came in human flesh, conceived not only by virgin conception but by the will of God(John 1:13).The word always within and on the right hand of God never leaving his command post so to speak and yet for a brief time period we beheld the word of God in the flesh.

Jesus very origin being prophecy as will as the word spoke and unspoken. Jesus human origin would come through the tribe of Jesse(Isaiah 9), to become human flesh. He would be from the very root of Jesse, offspring of David, kingly line. God's plan to produce his prophecy to humanity as ensign of who he is.(Continue your own study on Isaiah 11 not fully posted on ensign) Jesus girdle would be righteousness and he righteousness the gridle of his reins(power/rule). What we do need is the gridle of righteousness and to allow our faith to rule us. Yet we need to be aware some mental patient will take this and use it to do evil act in the name of God. Be aware that faith and righteousness in Christ Jesus, is more then just claiming faith and belief but responsibility to demonstrate love and love for God. When one does something make sure it is an act of love we do, and is God's very will and purpose for our life and others. Not in some crazy act of genocide, or malicious random act of violence.

God's Spirit is love and not hate. God is love. Jesus very act of violence in the temple courts makes one wonder his authority and power, and his claim as Messiah. Yet we stop and ask ourselves and ask what line or kingship was Jesus from and the answer the line of David and the priest line of Judah is what gave Jesus the authority to throw the moneychangers out of the temple, this shows his human heritage right to say there is issue happening that is not godly. Was Jesus authority recognized, perhaps but priest's son in the temple life was in jeopardy and peace was wanted more then war. High Priest Caiaphas(story found in John 11:50) propheside one would die for the nation, not only prophesied this, but it was spoken in context of peace between Rome and the Jewish people. In other words the Temple leaders were bowing to outside authority and not God. Allowing the government in that would eventually destroy them. Everyone desires peace and safety. We look at our laws and say do we have peace, safety and hope or are we living in days like Jesus where his rule is no longer wanted.

Who was the Messiah suppose to be according to Isaiah besides coming from the root of Jesse. Isaiah 11:2 the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him. Let understand that the Messiah is man as long as he walks the face of the earth. Yet God Spirit rested on him. During the baptism of Jesus a dove landed on Jesus and God spoke that this was his Son whom he was will pleased. Symbol of the Holy Spirit of God resting on Christ very shoulders. Then we see some more attributes, there are seven spirits of Jesus in Isaiah 11:2-4, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of fear/revence of the Lord, be quick in understanding in the fear of the Lord, shall not judge the earth(John 3:17- he came not to condemn the world), He would judge the poor by their belief and righteousness, and reprove with fairness/equity the meek of the earth, Jesus would smite/hit the earth with the rod of his mouth and with his breath of his lips he would slay the wicked (Soldiers fell backwards in John 18:6 in the garden), a form of slaying that did not kill but cause them to recognize the authority of God's power to control the situation.

Jesus did not come to condemn but to judge, what was happening but a line drawn for people to understand the difference in righteousness and sin. A line draw to understand approval and unapproved. The rich man asking what one had to do to be saved and Jesus told him to go and sell all he had, because he already obeyed the commandments. He would walk away sorrowful, because of his wealth. This defined what the rich man true love was.

Things we know about Jesus's in his regards of teaching on faith and his role as example of faith even done to obeying the will of God for him to die on the cross for the world's sin. Yet he would give Jesus the power to rise again and to sit at his right side, with authority over even the angels of heaven. Yet for a short time he was made lower then the angels.

We see Jesus the word of God in full humanity, in regards to how we should judge, react, and obey God. We see Jesus fully relying on his very nature as the word of God. One day the saints will judge the angels of heaven(I Corinthians 7:3). We need to now ask, if we not God by what will we judge with? We will judge by the Holy Spirit by the word of God in human incorruptible flesh, not as God or lord's over God's heritage, but in love as Christ loved us.

What is this judgment we have control over it is like United States Congress reinstating what is already rightfully women in the ERA, putting it down in black and white so there no confusion of how the law reads concerning abuse of women and their rights to work with freedom from harassement. We become a guardian of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit in regards to judging angels. Just like minister judges a church by the Holy Spirit and the word of God if he is willing to lay his life down for the sheep to protect the church.

I had an experience once of a minister question my authority and I thought to myself if he has to question it, then he wasn't listen to God's authority in the church or only wanted the money the congression offered. I not sure which. Yet the truth being he gave me evidence of it being God's Spirit. I said nothing more. I walked out short time later from that church, because I felt God leading me away from it for a time. Christ position comes by the Holy Spirit, not by man. His authority and power is of God. Make sure your earthly pastor is one that obeys God fully, despite common sense.

Dear Heavenly Father, you know the truth that we look for who Christ is and his authority, his rule and things that we question we can not fully grasp at times, but we understand who Jesus the Messiah is by your prophetic word concerning him. That he is the one prophesied coming out of the root of Jesse the line of King David. We also see the seven spirits of God, meaning the seven attributes of his authority, power and righteous gridle that he wore. Thank you for your prophesy today. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study: John 1:1-14 KJV
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
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.

Isaiah 11:1-5 KJV
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Revelation 1:3-17 KJV
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
