"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil." (Hebrews 2:14). Jesus Christ took the same flesh and blood that you and I have when he was incarnated and came into the world; that is, God manifest in flesh. He was the Word made flesh. However, God did not change into flesh and flesh did not become God. God is immutable and is Spirit, but the Spirit was in the flesh and blood just like ours. "For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the world." (Hebrews 2:16,17).  Jesus did not come down to earth as an extraterrestrial or as a stranger to us, but came as one of us. Not just in some things, but in all things, as a human being: spirit, soul, and body. However, in this human body like ours was residing permanently the Spirit of God in His fullness. (Colossians 2:9).

 

Did Jesus take on Adam's nature before the fall or after the fall? Did Jesus take on a body of innocence being exempt from internal temptation as a man, or did he take on a carnal fallen nature which was under the same powers of destruction as mankind? Did Jesus start on the playing field in the same location and position as fallen mankind? Paul states that Jesus did actually have "sarxhamartias" or "sinful flesh". In every respect, he was tempted in all points and in all manner like as mankind, but without the sin. He had to fulfill all righteousness. He could not take the dominion back from Satan as God, but as a man. A man or Adam lost it and a man or Adam only could redeem it back to God. Dominion of the earth had been given to Adam, and Adam had lost it to Satan in disobedience thereby bringing death upon his progeny. "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come." (Romans 5:12-14). Therefore, Adam was the figure of Christ or Messiah that was to come into the world for the redemption of mankind. Basis of truth: a man lost it (brought sin into his nature), a man (with a fallen human nature) only can get it back by living above sin.

 

Flesh is the Greek "sarx" meaning the human being of spirit, soul, and body. The humanity of Jesus just like Adam's after the fall?  "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted as we are , yet without sin." (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus was tempted in all points, just like all of mankind is tempted. Jesus was tempted in his spirit and in his flesh just like us: 1) in his spirit by temptation (a) of Satan (in the wilderness, at Gethsemane, etc) (b) the world (men tried to take him in his words, etc) 2) in his body (a) privations and (b) death. However, Jesus never carried the weight of sin, his flesh never knew sin, his blood was spotless, having never sinned. Jesus was holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners. He was different from us in that he never sinned, he never carried the body of sin or weight of sin in his members as all of us have. 

 

How does one know or try the spirits to determine whether they are of God or not? John declares the answer. "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." (1 John 4:1-3). This is not as the Trinity or Twoness doctrine believes; that is, that Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Godhead as the Eternal Son come in flesh. This is Jesus Christ (God= Spirit) come in the flesh (sarx-the complete human being: spirit, soul, and body). Thus Jesus Christ is the incarnated God. 

 

The true spirit that is from God confesses that Jesus Christ as the proper name of God (the Father, the Almighty, Elohim, El Shaddai, Jehovah, Yahweh or any other title referring to the Spirit of God) is come (became) in the flesh (of an ordinary man as Adam possessing a natural fallen human spirit, soul, and body of flesh and blood). Jesus met on Satan's own playing field and beat him on equal ground. God assumed sinful flesh of fallen humanity and in sinful flesh of fallen humanity, condemned sin in the flesh....Jesus overcame sin in the flesh.

 

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh (human), justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16).  Yes, God came in a human body of flesh and blood in order to die for the sin of the world. He was justified by the Spirit of holiness being accepted as the perfect, spotless, sinless Lamb of God. He was seen of angels and preached unto the Gentiles as the God that has become our salvation. He was believed on in the world as the Redeemer, and received up into glory. God hath made that same Jesus whom you have crucified both Lord and Christ. Now Jesus has been glorified with an everlasting body; the corruptible flesh of Jesus will no more return to corruption, death hath no more dominion over him. (Acts 13:34, Romans 6:9b). Now we are looking for the appearance of our great God and Saviour the second time, Jesus Christ without sin unto salvation. 

 

"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, be humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." (Philippians 2:5-8).  "Form" is Greek "morphe" which is intrinsic, or on the inside; "made himself no reputation is the Greek "keeno" meaning "emptied", while "fashion" is Greek "schema" and refers to the exterior or the visible outside. Jesus had two forms as the Messiah. Jesus' form was 1) Spirit and the Spirit did not change forms or morphe, and 2) flesh as a man; thus the man Christ Jesus emptied himself out in will as a man being in subjection always to the mind set of the Spirit. Therefore, Jesus as the Spirit of God was made in the likeness of men being fashioned or schema on the outside as a natural fallen man of flesh and blood like us. This allowed God to house or dwell permanently in a body of flesh for the death on the cross for all mankind. He who was rich became poor that we might be made rich. Oh what love that God has toward the children of men. God bless His holy name.
