"And Jesus answered them, saying, the hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified." (John 12:23). The glory of Jesus Christ as the Word made flesh was manifested in His virgin birth as God coming as a man; i.e. the God-man. "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." (John 1:14). The glory of God was manifested as the express image of God's Person as the Son of God. Jesus was not a copy or impress of the image of God, but was the exact die press original as the character and glory of God. He is God manifested in the flesh as the Son of God declaring God's glory, nature, character, power, works, etc.

 

Jesus as a man will grow in favor with God and man. He will pray, fast, submit His will to that of the Father's at all times. As a man, He will live as a man being tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin. He was a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief. Jesus knew what it was to be forsaken and betrayed by brethren; mocked and spit upon, and learned obedience by the things which he suffered being made perfect. Jesus' humanity was made perfect thus completed as a perfect seven, being holy, harmless, undefiled and separate from sinners. It was on this basis of sufferings, being made perfect, that He became the author of eternal salvation.

 

Jesus as God did not need to be glorified, neither will the man Christ Jesus become God, for He is, was, and is to come throughout eternity God. The Person of Jesus Christ is God who took on a body as a human being of man. Jesus Christ is not a man that became glorified as God. Jesus Christ is God, has always been God, and will forever be God. God is a Spirit and Jesus Christ is that Spirit. "Now the Lord is that Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:17). "God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts." (Galatians 4:6b). Peter referring to the prophets of the Old Testament "Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow." (1 Peter 1:11). God manifested His glory through taking on the form of mankind being fashioned as a man in order to wrought salvation for the world through the ultimate sacrifice on the cross and his subsequent resurrection. The Messiah in the form of God is the Father, Word, Holy Ghost, Spirit of God, Jehovah LORD, Yahweh, El Shaddai, Elohim, etc. The Messiah in the form of man is flesh and blood man just like you and me. The Messiah or Christ has two forms in pre and post glorification:  1) Spirit and  2) human being or man.

 

"And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." (John 17:5). Adam lost the dominion as a man through disobedience bringing death upon all mankind; the second Adam (the resurrected Christ) as a man won back what the first Adam lost bringing life to all mankind. Defacto: a man lost it, only a man can get it back. Jesus Christ worked as a man in the days of His flesh in subjection to the office of the Father. Even though Jesus Christ has two forms: one being the Father or Spirit of God; the other being human flesh and blood as a man, Jesus worked in the office of the Son of God as a man just like us, being tempted in all points like us, becoming the author of eternal life. Jesus prayed to be glorified with God's own self, He prayed as a man to exchange weakness for power, humility for glory, a natural man for a spiritual man. Jesus was not bringing deity down to humanity, but bringing humanity to deity by the exaltation of Himself as a man to the right hand of God, all power in heaven and earth being given to him. 

 

God worked reconciliation in and through Himself. How did He do it? "Who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation: To wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself." (2 Corinthians 5:18b,19a). All the fullness of the Godhead was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself; viz. God. Jesus was God who used a body of flesh and blood as a man in order to suffer, die on a cross for the sin of the world, and be resurrected as the way for mankind to be saved. He was always God, but He was not always the Son of God until He took on a body as a man; the Word made flesh called the Son of God in the redemptive office of God. Anyone seeking for salvation must go to the redemptive office of God; that is, the Son of God in order to get to the Father. For the Father is Jesus Christ who took on a human body called the Son of God in order to redeem mankind back to Himself; that is, back to God Himself.

 

"Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory." (1 Peter 1:21a). Who raised Jesus from the dead? "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up ." (John 2:19). Jesus as the Father or Spirit will raise up his own body of flesh. Jesus was sown in weakness just like us, but raised in glory. ""that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father." (Romans 6:4b). Jesus is the Federal Head of the family of God by His glorification. "And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence." (Colossians 2:18). This is the Feast of Firstfruits in the divine appointments of God with man known as the Feasts of the LORD. "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." (1 Corinthians 15:20). Because Jesus lives, we live. Because Jesus was glorified in his human body, we also have the guarantee that we also will be glorified if we are in Christ. The praises throughout eternity to the glory of God for the redemption of the purchased possession of His church as His body and bride was wrought in Christ when He raised him from the dead and set him at His own right hand, waiting until all things are put under the feet of Jesus.
