“The ‘Only Begotten’ Son of God – 101” …Blog.
*** (Hebrews 11:17) By faith Abraham, being tested, offered up Isaac. And he who had received the promises offered up his only-begotten son,
*** (John 1:18) No one has seen God at any time; the Only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
*** (John 3:18) He who believes on Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
*** (John 1:14) And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth.
Someone recently asked… “What does it mean, “The ‘Only Begotten’ son of God?” Let us go back to Genesis, “How or ‘of what’ did God create mankind?” He, God created mankind of the Earth and Breathed into him, Life!” God created Man and then Woman from Man. Both came from the Earth… and all humans… our human bodies will return to dust; from our death. All humans are of the “Same Human Lineage.” The Jewish 12 tribes of Israel… are of the “Same Human Lineage” of mankind; starting with Abraham [Acts 7:All]. Christ Jesus the Messiah, had His “Human Lineage” of the Jews. As He as human: is both: “Very Man & Very God”… He had to be… “Begotten by a God Lineage”. That is why He, is called the “Sinless: Passover Lamb of God”….!
*** (Genesis 1:26) And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
(Gen 1:27) And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. [Colossians 1:12-to-19]
*** (Genesis 2:7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
*** (Genesis 2:21-to-23) And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath.
(Gen 2:22) And the LORD God made the rib (which He had taken from the man) into a woman. And He brought her to the man.
(Gen 2:23) And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman because she was taken out of man.
*** (Genesis 3:17-to-20) And to Adam He said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it! The ground is cursed for your sake. In pain shall you eat of it all the days of your life.
(Gen 3:18) It shall also bring forth thorns and thistles to you, and you shall eat the herb of the field.
(Gen 3:19) In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you shall return.
(Gen 3:20) And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. [Human Lineage]
*** (1Corinthains 5:7) Therefore purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
*** (John 1:29-to-34) The next day John sees Jesus coming to him and says, Behold the Lamb of God: Who takes away the sin of the world!
(John 1:30) This is He of whom I said, After me comes a Man who has been before me, for He preceded me.
(John 1:31) And I did not know Him, but that He be revealed to Israel, therefore I have come baptizing with water.
(John 1:32) And John bore record, saying, I saw the [Holy] Spirit descending from Heaven like a dove, and He abode on Him.
(John 1:33) And I did not know Him [Christ]; but He [God] Who sent me to baptize with water, that One said to me; Upon Whom you shall see the [Holy] Spirit descending, and remaining upon Him; He [Christ] is the One; Who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. [Romans 8:9]
(John 1:34) And I saw and bore record that this is the Son of God.

Once one had “Differentiated”… ‘Human Lineage’ from “God’s Lineage”… all becomes clear. The NT calls all those; who have been Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God [Romans 8:9]… ‘Sons of God’. The difference is that Christ Jesus was born ONCE… in the “Lineage of God!” Humans that are “NOW”: the ‘Sons of God’… are Born Again [Born from Above]! They started out with their “Fallen ‘Sinful’ Human Lineage” as we all do. But by the Second Birth: they are Made: the Sons of God… by His Indwelling Holy Spirit. We humans are NOT… Begotten of God… Until we are Born Again! All mankind is the Creation of God… but ONLY those “Truly Born Again”… are “His Sons & Daughters!” We were NOT: Begotten of God… UNTIL: we are Born Again [from Above], thus sharing in His Grace, Mercy & Love…! Those who are NOT: Born Again… are surely headed for “Eternal Damnation!”
*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does ‘Not’ love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be Accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes! [Again]
*** (Romans 5:17-18-19) For if, through one man [Adam], death ruled because of that man's offense; how much more will those who receive such overflowing grace and the gift of righteousness rule in life; because of one man, Jesus Christ!
(Rom 5:18) Consequently, just as one [Adam’s] offense resulted in condemnation for everyone; so one act of righteousness [by Christ Jesus]: results in justification and life for everyone. [Rom 8:9]
(Rom 5:19) For just as through one man's disobedience many people were made sinners; so also through one man's obedience; many people will be made righteous.
*** (Romans 8:14-to-17) For all who are led by God's Spirit are God's children.
(Rom 8:15) For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba! Father!"
(Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
(Rom 8:17) Now if we are children, we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if, in fact, we share in His sufferings; in order that we may ‘also’ share in His glory.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you: Except a man be born again; he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
Perhaps, one more Time…? We are all born of our “Human Lineage” from Adam & Eve. This lineage is born in Sin and as Sinners: we have no hope… for heaven or for God! SIN is our Root… and SINS are the fruit we bear of our ‘Human Lineage’. God demands perfection to enter into heaven. Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God… was “Perfect”… as He lived here in His “Human Lineage!” Throughout Jewish history, the Celebration of the Passover… was simply a “Word Picture” of the coming Christ Jesus: The Messiah of Israel. But God in His Love, Mercy & Grace… offered Salvation to All Mankind. Yes, to each & everyone. Even in the OT salvation was offered to the Gentile. That is exactly why… Christ Jesus… said that “True Saving Faith” comes from correct Facts: found “ONLY” in the Scriptures! And ‘NOT’ is some Church or Denomination’s teaching! Do ‘You’ believe in Christ Jesus according to… “John 7:38-39”…? “Yes” or “No”…?
*** (Psalms 98:2-3) The LORD hath made known His salvation: His righteousness has He openly showed in the sight of the heathen [Gentile].
(Psa 98:3) He hath remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel: ‘ALL’ the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
*** (2Chronicles 6:32-33) And also to the stranger who is ‘NOT’ of Your people Israel, but has come from a far country for Your great name's sake, and Your mighty hand, and Your stretched out arm, if they come and pray in this house;
(2Chron 6:33) then hear from Heaven, from Your dwelling-place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, so that all people of the earth may know Your name, and fear You, as Your people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name.
*** (John 4:19-to-26) The woman said to Him [Jesus], "Sir, I see that you are a prophet!
(John 4:20) Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain. But You Jews say; that the place where people should worship is in Jerusalem."
(John 4:21) Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
(John 4:22) You don't know what you're worshiping. We know what we're worshiping, for salvation comes from the Jews.
(John 4:23) Yet the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in “Spirit and Truth”. Indeed, the Father [God] is looking for people like that to worship Him.
(John 4:24) God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth."
(John 4:25) The woman said to Him, "I know that the Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us everything."
(John 4:26) Jesus said to her, "I am He, the One: Who is speaking to you."
“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are ‘not’ of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
Where do ‘You’ go from here…? Are ‘You’ truly Born Again: Born from Above: by the Holy Spirit of God…? Remember, simply knowing ‘about’ Jesus, God or the Bible does ‘NOT’ make one, “Born Again!” Many have been ‘Crippled’ by their Church or Denomination! Many simply say they “Love JESUS”… but do ‘NOT’ love His Holy Word: The Bible! Christ Jesus is the “Living Holy Word of GOD!” He is the First Begotten of GOD… and His Bride: “The Church”… are the Children of God! They are ‘ALL’… Born Again by His Holy Spirit! Do ‘You’ know where eternity will take ‘You’…? Can ‘You’ validate your Faith in Christ: with His Holy Word…? What then are ‘You’ trusting your eternal destiny to…? A Church or a Denomination…? “Just Perhaps”… ‘You’ have “Never” been Born Again?
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are reprobates?
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.
“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].
