Who is the Son
By: Jo Smith..June 23, 2018
John 1: 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
Here we have two men saying, this is the Son of God. Jesus himself said, ‘the Son of man’. So which is it?
All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
Now there we have two witnesses, Scripture writers, stating that no man knows who the Son is, but the Father.
So if no man knows who the son is, but the Father, how did John and Phillip know who the Son is?
Mat. 16: 13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Cæsarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood
hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Jesus asked his disciples, whom do men say that I the SON OF MAN am?
Peter said thou are the Christ, the SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
JESUS then said, the Father revealed this to you. No man knows who the Son is unless the Father reveals it to them.
Peter was not answering the question, who is the son of man; he went to the answer of who the Son of God is.
The entire church world says that Mary’s baby Jesus, is the son of God. So if it takes a revelation from the Father to show who the Son of God is, how is it that all these people think they know who it is? Surely they did not all receive a revelation from the Father.
Now let’s set up one more line of thought:
John 1: 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.
God gives the believers on his name, power TO BECOME (future tense) SONS OF GOD.
So if Mary’s baby is this Son of God and we receive power to also become a son of God, will the God of heaven come into our mother and put himself there? …in her natural womb?
But he said this will not be of blood or the will of the flesh or the will of man.
John 3: 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth:
so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Now here is the mystery: Jesus said, that which is born of the flesh is FLESH.
That which is born of the Spirit is Spirit..
God is a Spirit. God does NOT beget fleshly sons.
So to say that Mary’s baby is this Son of God is to call these words of Jesus a LIE. He said that which is born of Spirit is Spirit. His flesh was not born from a Spirit. God, the Father, is a spirit. So Mary’s little human baby cannot be this SON OF GOD.
The word very clearly declares in several different verses that Jesus is the son of JOSEPH.
God clearly said, he was born of the seed of a man, David. He is clearly called the son of Abraham and David. Joseph is clearly shown to be a son of David.
Neither of these men are spirit. They did not Father the Son of God. They fathered Mary’s baby.
This is why Jesus called himself, son of MAN. He was speaking of himself and needed no revelation from the Father to know this.
Acts 2: 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
God swore to David, of the fruit of HIS LOINS, according to the FLESH, HE would raise up Christ to sit on his throne.
That which is born of flesh is flesh. This flesh man is Mary’s baby. This is not the Son of God. Yet some had declared to him, you are the Son of God. So what is the answer?
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
God made that same Jesus, (Mary’s son) whom they had crucified, to be BOTH Lord and Christ. THIS Is that Christ, that is the Son of the Living God.
Romans 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, 2 (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3 concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
4 and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
Now here is the answer to the mystery:
Jesus Christ was made of the Seed of David ACCORDING TO THE FLESH….THAT WHICH IS BORN OF FLESH IS FLESH.
Jesus was a flesh man, made from the seed of a man; performed by the Holy Ghost; not the will of man.
The Son of God was begotten the day God raised the man, Jesus, from the dead. He is the firstborn from the DEAD.
The day Jesus was baptized by John, God gave to Jesus the HOLY GHOST. Thus Jesus had the Son of God inside himself; his spiritual womb.
This growing son of God, inside the man Jesus, is this Son of God. It takes a revelation from the Father to know this and that is why the church has no knowledge of this. They have not been taught by the Father.
They must also conceive seed from God, given to us by Jesus via the Holy Ghost, in order to bring forth a son of God. This is the only means of NEW BIRTH….being born from the Spirit.
Remember, no man knows this son of God except the Father reveals it to you. and no man knows the Father unless the Son of God reveals it to you.
Hence, very few know the true Son of God or the Father of that son.
