Jesus begotten Son of God #15 Son of God Originating in Mary

The Anointed begotten Son of God

36. Originating in Mary

From the nativity story to the story of the beginning of Jesus ‘public life we see the line of the human link and often we also shall get to see the fragility of the Master Teacher, who sometimes got tired of the human crowd around him.

The whole story is ruined if another dimension is added to the story, namely that the Son of God was already a pre-existing member of an eternal Trinity. Gabriel has carefully defined the nature of Jesus’ Sonship and his words exclude any origin other than a supernatural origin in Mary.

Gabriel’s Jesus, Son of God — the biblical Son — originates in Mary. He is conceived and begotten by miracle. In pre-existence Christology, the main plank of Trinitarianism, a conception/begetting in Mary’s womb does not bring about the existence of God’s Son. According to Gabriel it does. Neither Gabriel nor Luke could possibly have been Trinitarians.

No need for centuries of complex wrangling over words. All that is required is belief of the angelic communication: “For this reason precisely (dio kai) — the creative miracle of God through His divine power — the child will be Son of God.” For no other reason, for this reason only. (Note the very watered-down rendering of the NIV, “so the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.”)

37. Son of the Most High

Jesus as Son of God is “the Son of the Most High”.

“He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God shall give Him the throne of His father David.” (Luke 1:32 Complete Apostles’ Bible)

Clearly there is also written in the future sense. In case Jesus already existed, being God, he would be the Most High and therefore would be more than Great. God has been sitting on the throne form the beginning and in case Jesus was God he would have already been sitting on the throne as well and would have had already the throne of David. He also would not have David as his forefather, because David would be a great great-grandson.(30)

We also should question “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God?”

“And when he saw יהושע, he cried out, fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, “What have I to do with You, יהושע, Son of the Most High Elohim? I beg You, do not torture me!”” (Luke 8:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

Though we may also be children of God by the grace of Jesus Christ, heirs’ heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, but we shall have to work very hard to become like Christ, as is one of our tasks given by the Master Teacher and his disciples. We as Christ Jesus shall have to come to live according the Spirit, in the spirit instead of in the flesh, as Jesus was in the Spirit and from the Spirit. In such a way only by submitting to God’s law, not being in the flesh we shall be able to please God. As the Spirit of Goddwelled in Jesus it should also dwell in us. And being led by the Spirit of God we are sons of God in the same way that Jesus is son of God. The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. (31)

English: Jesus Christ - detail from Deesis mos...

“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the matters of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the matters of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace. Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Elohim, for it does not subject itself1 to the Torah of Elohim2, neither indeed is it able, {Footnotes: 1Or does not obey. 2John 15:5, 1 John 4:4, 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18.} and those who are in the flesh are unable to please Elohim. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, this one is not His. And if Messiah is in you, the body is truly dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised יהושע from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Messiah from the dead shall also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit dwelling in you. So then, brothers, we are not debtors to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of Elohim, these are sons of Elohim. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of Elohim, and if children, also heirs – truly heirs of Elohim, and co-heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, in order that we also be exalted together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the esteem that is to be revealed in us. For the intense longing1 of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Elohim. {Footnote: 1Lit. anxiously looking with outstretched head.} For the creation was subjected to futility, not from choice, but because of Him who subjected it, in anticipation, that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage to corruption into the esteemed freedom of the children of Elohim.” (Romans 8:5-21 The Scriptures 1998+)

Let us therefore know and understand, not walking in darkness but recognize the person to whom Jesus prayed and whom he adored and called Him his Father. As David and Jesus said that the Creator of all things was their Father, we also should say: “you are Elohim, and sons of the Supreme are all of you.” Yet we know we shall die like common humanity, most likely in a better way than Jesus died. Though Jesus never did do anything wrong but poor us we do know we are too weak to be totally like Christ, without any fault, with whom we have to be in unity.

“They do not know, nor do they understand, They walk about in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken. I, I said, “You are elohim, And all of you are sons of the Most High. “But as men you die, And fall as one of the heads.” “ (Psalms 82:5-7 The Scriptures 1998+)

“My little children, I write this to you, so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Intercessor with the Father, יהושע Messiah, a righteous One. And He Himself is an atoning offering for our sins, and not for ours only but also for all the world. And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.1{Footnote: 1See 3:6}. The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Elohim has been perfected1 in him. By this we know that we are in Him.2 {Footnotes: 1Gen. 17:1, Ps. 119:1, Mt. 5:48. 2See 3:24.} The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked. Beloved, I write no fresh command to you, but an old command which you have had from the beginning. The old command is the Word which you heard from the beginning.1 {Footnote: 1See v. 24.} (1 John 2:1-7 The Scriptures 1998+)

(31):   “The spirit itself is testifying together with our spirit that we are children of God.” (Romans 8:16 CLV)
