Sabbath: The Promised Son — 10 Comments

  1. Today's lesson concludes with the following statement:

    "What neither Adam and Eve, Abraham, or David probably never imagined, however, was that their Redeemer Son would be God Himself."

    There is so much more to what this statement is actually reflecting than you will pick up with a single, casual reading. As we explore Hebrews 1* this week, I would invite you to keep referring back to this statement to see if, by giving it considerable reflection across the week, you begin to see more of the depth of the experience that was involved in God Himself becoming our Redeemer - your Redeemer.

    *FYI, Philippians 2:5-9 is a parallel passage that will enhance your study and contemplation/s.

  2. What a privilege for us living in the 21st century knowing Christ is the Son of God. Christ came into the world to reveal the Father.

    9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
    John 14:9-11

    Father, Son and the Holy Spirit they all in union work for our redemption.

  3. Isaiah 2:2-3NKJV - What a beautiful example for using the ‘language of words’ to convey the ‘language of the Spirit’ - Truth! “The Promised Son” - ‘the mountain of the LORD’S house’; ‘established on the top of the mountains’; ‘exalted above all hills’! V.3: ‘let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, the house of the God of Jacob’ to learn from Him ... .
    Can the Promised Son be a - mountain of the Lord’s house, on the top of mountains, above hills ‘teaching us His ways that we shall walk in His paths.’? Yes - the Son of God is all that and can do all this which is expressed by using words, the language of man expressing their essence when conveying spiritual Truth!

    Heb.1:2-3NKJV - today’s memory text, exemplifies the union of the Father and the Son which existed from the beginning – v.2: ”has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, and through whom also HE made the universe.” Father and Son worked together from the Beginning, but full authority over the work of the salvation of man was vested in God, the Son of the Father, our Savior, Christ Jesus our Lord, only after His resurrection from His death born in the flesh, His form as the Son of Man – 1Peter3:22; Acts 2:33; Luke 22:69; Heb.10:12.

    Yes, the *Promised Son of God* has come in the form of the Son of Man; now having received all powers to administer the salvation of the faithful by their resurrection them from the physical death to translate them to Life-everlasting.
    Though, man needs to first believe and accept that this God exists; an authority to which he gives his consent to govern his life by. The true believer has accepted this Truth by faith!
    He now is faithful to his God, his Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, the Son of God who was with God from the Beginning – John 1:1,2 KJV - ”In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.” Praise be to God!

  4. When we read God's promises in His Word, do we trust them or not? What to say of this if we have any need and the promises become our only hope. We can say by biblical testimonies that the Lord's promises are infallible. So many things can happen, but God keeps his promises.

    1 Kings 8.56 says:
    “Blessed be the Lord, who gave rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised; not a single word has failed of all his good promises made through Moses, his servant”.

    These words make our hearts overflow with confidence. Promises of the Lord are for me, are for you. God is no respecter of persons. He doesn't love me more than he loves you. His love is the same for everyone

  5. The promise of the son is given many times.Moses is promised a lamb for the burnt sacrifice...that lamb is symbolic its about Christ -Himself,who takes away the sins of the world.All the things people had been praying for were fulfilled through Jesus.
