Humanity of Christ
D. K. Henry
you really want to believe that Christ was/is God himself
there are a number of scriptures that you have to disbelieve.
Many people define Christ as being God, Yahweh himself,
the Eternal One who came to earth and walked around as a man.
I would like to discuss some of the conflicts
of this position.
one of the earliest statements concerning Christ, God called
Christ a prophet
and said that he would be a person like Moses.
Deuteronomy 18:18, “I will raise them up a prophet
from among their brethren, like
unto thee, and I will put my words in his
mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I command him.”
42:1, “Behold my servant,
whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I
have put my spirit upon him:”
made several statements defining Christ as being his Son.
Matt. 3:17, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well
2:7, “ Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”
This was a prophetic statement. We
do not beget ourselves, we are begotten by parents, both
in the flesh and in the spirit.
1:5, “I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son.”
Yahshua could not make this statement about Yahweh.”
under the power of the Holy Spirit said, Numbers 23:19, “God
is not a man,
that he should lie, neither
the son of man, that he should repent.”
Yahshua described himself as the son of man 88 times.
If Yahweh is not the son of man and Yahshua is
the son of man, then He and Christ are two separate persons.
Numbers 23:19 also stated that God was not
a man let us look at several scriptures that describe
Christ as being a man.
20:17, “I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and unto
my God and your God.”
This is a very defining statement concerning several
about it. This is a statement that God/Yahweh could not make.
2:22, Peter under the power of the Holy Spirit on the Day
of Pentecost, “Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of
Nazareth, a man
approved of God.”
Paul never met the human mortal man Christ, the only Christ
that Paul ever met was the immortal risen Christ and Paul
stated several times that he is a man.
Galations 1:16, “I conferred not with flesh and blood.”
Cor. 4:4, “Christ who is the image of God.” There
is a natural man and there is a man of the spirit.
Only the man of the spirit is in the image and
likeness of Yahweh.
Yahshua became a man of the spirit on resurrection
Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and man, the
man Christ Jesus.”
This statement is present tense and was written some
30 years after the Cross.
Cor. 15:21, “For since by man came death, by
man came also the resurrection of the dead.”
Cor. 15:23, “But every
man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward
they that are Christ’s.”
Note, here Christ is listed as a man, the first
fruits of man.
5:15, “The gift of Grace, which is by one man,
Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.”
13:38, Paul being quoted by Dr. Luke. “Be it known unto you
therefore, men and brethren, that through this man (Yahshua) is preached unto you the forgiveness of
17:31, “Because he (Yahweh) hath appointed a day in which
he will judge the
world in righteousness by
that man whom he hath
ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all
men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” This
is still future.
people try to say that Christ was both man and God so we should
remember that God said that he was not a man.
we shut the door on Yahshua’s humanity we shut the door on
our entry into life as he is the way.
If he was God then his resurrection from the dead means
nothing to me because I am not a God, I am a man.
But if he was a man, then his resurrection from the
dead into an all powerful spiritual body is the most
important event since Adam because I can follow a man.
always spoke of his heavenly Father in the third person, as
being another person, the person he prayed to, and he also
admitted that there were things that he did not know, that
only God knew and decisions he could not make that only Yahweh
13:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither
the Son, but the Father.”
20:23, “But to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not
mine to give.”
stated that coming to earth was not his idea.
8:42, “I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came
myself, but He sent
me.” It was an act of obedience.
of us who know who we are and where we came from can make
this same statement.
See John 1:6, “There was a man sent
whose name was John.”
John was a man and he was sent from God.
told Jeremiah that he knew him before he was conceived.
Before Jeremiah was conceived there was no Jeremiah
in the flesh only his spirit.
Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I
ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Yahweh was saying that he knew Jeremiah before he sent
him to his mother in the flesh.
told Rebecca that he loved Jacob and hated Esau before either
of them had been born.
This is another way for God to say that he loved the
spirit that he put into Jacob and he hated the spirit that
he put into Esau. He
knew them both before they were ever conceived in the flesh.
He had a purpose for Esau and Esau is fulfilling that
9:11, “For the children not yet born, neither having done
any good or evil, that the purpose
of God according to election
might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth.”
13, “It was said unto her, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have
I hated.” Notice
the past tense. He
knew them before he sent them down.
We, our spirits, do not start at conception in the
flesh, we came from the other side sent by God.
8:29, “For whom he did foreknow he also did predestinate
to be conformed to the image
of his Son, that he (his Son) might be the firstborn of
many brethren. 30, Moreover whom he did predestinate, them
he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified;
and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
Many people say whom he did foreknow is only Christ.
This is not so, just read what it says.
He foreknew you and me as well as Christ and glorification
is our destiny.
as he hath chosen us in himself before the foundation
of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before
him in love.” Our
spirits were separated from His Spirit just like Eve was separated
17:8, “Whose names were not written in the book of life from
the foundation of the world.”
11:12, “God hath not cast away his people which he
the sons of Adam were all sent and we shall all
people do not understand just who Adamic man is and where
he came from. We
are spirit and we are Elohim spelled with a small “e.”
How many here believe that we are elohim?
Read Psalms 82:6,
“I have said, ye are elohim, and all of you
are children of the Most High.” My King James translates
it gods plural, with a small “g” but the word is elohim.
12:7, “Then shall the dust (my body) return to the earth
as it was: and the spirit (me, my person) shall
return to God who gave it.”
I cannot return to some place unless I have been there before.
2:11, Moffatt, “Sanctifier (Christ) and sanctified (you and
me) have all one origin, that is why he is not
ashamed to call them brothers.”
This says that you and I and Christ all came from the
same place, God/Yahweh.
We came different routes and under different conditions
but we came from the same source.
I came under a sentence of death as the seed of Adam
while he was the seed of the woman and not under Adam’s curse.
are spirit of Yahweh’s spirit, that is how we are related
to him. We call
Him our Father but often do not understand just how He became
our Father. Until
you recognize where you came from you will not know who you
Cor. 6:19, “Know ye not that your body is the temple of the
Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye
have of God, and ye are not your own.”
This is what Yahweh breathed into Adam a portion of
his own spirit.
spirit is a force.
It is the force that operates your body.
Adam looked at Eve who came out of his flesh he not only loved
her he felt very possessive toward her because she came out
of his flesh. This
is the way that Yahweh who is Spirit feels toward your spirit.
You came from his spirit.
the Buzite understood this, he said, Job 34:14-15. “If he
(Yahweh) gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;
all flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again
is the source of all life.
understood this, Psalms 90, “Yahweh, thou hast been our dwelling
place in all generations. Before the mountains were
brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth.”
was Eve’s dwelling
place before she was separated from
Eve was separated from Adam she was a part of Adam doing
ever Adam was doing.
Before you (your spirit) was separated from Yahweh,
who is spirit, you were a part of Yahweh.
separation of Eve’s flesh from Adam’s flesh is an allegory
of what God did to himself.
Yahweh reached into his own spirit and separated a
feminine portion and breathed it into Adam.
who is Spirit and is a One, reached into himself and separated
a feminine portion of his own spirit and breathed it into
Adam and into you. Now
he looks at your spirit just as Adam looked at Eve.
established the covenant of marriage both in the flesh and
in the spirit. In
the flesh it is, Matt. 19:5, “And they twain shall be one
flesh.” In the
spirit it is, 1 Cor. 6:16, “He that is joined to the Lord
is one spirit.”
Oneness is completeness.
are spirit of his spirit and there is marriage in the flesh
and marriage in the spirit.
There is birthing in the flesh and there will be
birthing into the spirit.
conceived to the Holy Spirit in the Jordan River and he was
born of the Spirit on resurrection day (see Acts 13:33 and
Romans 1:4) and the scripture says that he is the “the beginning
of the creation of God.”
“The express image of God’s person and the brightness
of his Glory.” “The
first born of many brothers.”
He was the first of the 144,000 sealed.
John 6:27, Christ speaking of himself, “For him hath
God the Father sealed.”
sealing is the bonding of your spirit to the Holy Spirit,
it is spiritual conception.
We are all incomplete feminine spirits.
Christ in you the hope of glory.
Isaiah 41 Yahweh is talking to the house of Israel about Yahshua
and why he is going to send him.
Verse 28, “For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counsellor, that
when I asked of them, could answer a word.”
There were thousands of people there but spiritually
all that Yahweh could see were feminine spirits.
There was not a completed spirit man who Yahweh could
situation was changed when Pilate make that prophetic statement,
“Behold the Man.”
Yahshua was the only completed man of the spirit on
this earth at that time and he was ready for his spiritual
Because he was a man, when we are born of the Spirit we will
be like him. Because
he lives we shall live also.
Yahshua was God then his resurrection from the dead means
nothing to me because I am a man and not God.
If he was a man then his resurrection from the dead
in a spiritual body was the most important event since
thirty years after Yahshua had returned to his Father he made
this statement to John in Revelation 22 as one of his last
statements, Rev. 22:16, “I Yahshua/Jesus - - - am
the root and the offspring of David.”
He used the present tense (am) would he have made that
statement if he was Yahweh the eternal One?
If you want to believe that The Father and The Son are one
and the same person you have to throw away or ignore the allegory
of the sacrifice on Mount Moriah with, Abraham, (the father)
and Isaac, (the son).
