The Revelation Of God In Human Form by Joseph Edem Bassey

 

Jesus is God in the form of a man.


 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." ~John 1:14.


INTRODUCTION

 In the beginning, God created everything but was not seen by the Earthly creatures which He created. The reason is because God is SPIRIT. 
 The Earth though made by God, is a different realm from the realm of the spirit. It is controlled by the spiritual even though it cannot see the spirit, it is called the physical. 
 If you read History Of Humanity, you will find out that as soon as man disobeyed God, sin came into the world, demanding for its wages: death. "For the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23). What it said afterwards was what God did in the latter.

 In this message: The Revelation Of God In Human Form, we will be looking at:
  • Who Is God? 
  • God In Human Form
  • Why He Came In Human Form and
  • What We Should Do.
 We shall also get answers to questions like:
  • Who Is The Word?
  • Who Is The Holy Spirit?
  • Is God one or three?
  • What Is God's Name?

PRAYER:

 LORD, reveal yourself to me by your Word and Your Spirit. 

Who Is God?

  With regards to the many miraculous works of God, many people have identified Him with His handiworks. Meanwhile, there is a finite meaning to God as a being.

 According to the scriptures, it has been recorded occasionally where God is being presented in symbolic forms. A good example is where God is being called; a pillar of fire, a pillar of cloud, a flame of fire, a consuming fire, to mention but a few. It is worth knowing that these are but forms through which God presents Himself to the people.

Why?

 The reason is because "God is a Spirit..." (John 4:24).

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." (1 John 5:7).

 God is the Father, the Word is a part of God while the Holy Ghost is God's personality: these three are one. God the Father bears record in heaven with His Word and His Spirit which is God Himself.

 God is the Father. God has His Word; the expression of His thoughts, made manifested by His Spirit. God's Spirit is the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is God.


God In Human Form

 "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.

 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3).


 Right from the beginning of creation, we see God expressing His thoughts through His Word.

That is,

 The Word was with God right from the beginning, but the Word was Spirit, not Flesh: the Word was God.

  "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness." (Genesis 1:1-4).


 When God saw the Earth was without form, void and darkness was upon the face of the deep, God began to move upon the face of the waters. Seeing the darkness, God  thought of light, saying, "Let there be light..." In addition to the light, everything God said, God accomplished them by Himself.

 The Word existed with God, in God and as God. Each time the Word went forth, it manifested into something.

 The first manifestation of the Word was in the form of light, but after the downfall of man, God thought of salvation from the slavery of sin, and the reconciliation of man with God. Therefore, He sent the Word to save mankind. In other words, God came in the form of His Word to become like man. Remember, the Word is God Himself.

 "In him was life; and the life was the light of men." (John 1:4).

How Did God Do It?

 God entered into a virgin Marry; highly favoured, and delivered His Word as a seed into her womb.

  "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:14).

  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).


Note:

 Before now, the Word was Spirit. It became flesh when God begat Him in the Virgin.

 Now, the Word begotten of the Father in the Virgin, became His son; only begotten.

 If the Son was begotten of God, it means He came from the bossom of God and He is God. This is to say that God sent His part into the world to accomplish purpose. This part of God became flesh in due process, being God In Human Form.

 "Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (Matthew 1:22-23).

 It is clear that before the Word was made manifest, God already sent prophets to declare His Mind to the people. These prophets, prophesied the mind of God to the people; the coming of the Word in the form of a man, and for the redemption of mankind. 


Question: if the Son was called the name Emmanuel, meaning "God with us," who then is the Son?

Answer: the Son is God In Human Form. 


What Is God's Name

 It is worth knowing that all the prophets who prophesied, did so in the name of the Lord, but God's real name wasn't mentioned until when it was due.

 Prophet Isaiah said,

 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6).

These are the names attributed to God, and pronounced upon the only begotten of God long before He was begotten in the flesh. That means prophet Isaiah caught The Revelation Of God In Human Form long better it manifested. The simple truth is, God revealed His mind to him.

 

Note: God is revealing Himself to someone right now! Someone's eyes are opening now. Someone's understanding is being enlightened in the name of Jesus.


 Now, let me tell you something. Everyone have names by which other people identify and associate with them. Some people are called Prof, some Prophet, Apostle, Evangelist, Pastor, Bishop, Barrister etc. Does it mean they don't have real names attached to them? They do!

 Even so, God has a name which was never known until He came in human form. That name was revealed by an Angel of God.

 "But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:20-21).

 Sister Mary was carrying a child not of man, but of God. The child was carrying the name of God, and that name is JESUS. I hope someone is getting something.

 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:5-11).


 The name of God was revealed in the Son of God. The name JESUS was given to the Son by the Father, while the Earthly name of the Son is Christ, revealed to Simon Peter by God.

 "When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the son of the living God.

 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 16:13-17).

 So God was in heaven, and His part was on Earth fulfilling purpose. To clear some doubts, heaven is no distance to Earth for God, but to man, the heaven of God is likely a mystery yet unravelled. 

 Like every child begotten of a father would bear his or her father's name, the Son of God bore His Father's name which is the family's name. For instance, I am Joseph Bassey, the only begotten Son of God is Christ Jesus. 

 Are you in doubt of these things? Take a look at this;

 "Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me." (John 10:24).

 If you had studied Jesus Christ's life, can you tell me who's name He was working with? 

 Jesus Christ often talked about Himself using the phrase, "the son of man." That is a symbol of humility, likely covering a basic knowledge of His true identity. 

 Some of these things which Jesus Christ withheld from the people then, were made known to us through the Epistles of the Apostles, revealed by the Holy Spirit: God Himself. 

 For instance, the scriptures in Proverbs 18:10  says;

 "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."


 What is the name of the LORD that guarantees our safety?


 "This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:11).


 The Strong Tower is not the name, it is a symbol of the name. The name of the LORD is JESUS!

 The name JESUS was given to the Son of God by inheritance as it is with every human being.

 Hebrews 1:4-10 says:

 "Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 

 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands."


 The excellent name obtained by inheritance is JESUS. The name means Salvation, and God is Salvation.


Conclusion

 Take note of this statement;

 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16).


 So far, have you been blessed? If yes, begin to thank God for this knowledge, revealed by God's mercies and through His Spirit which is God. Speak in tongues as God gives you the utterances.


 Prayer Of Salvation

 If you want to surrender to Jesus Christ, pray this prayer with me:

 Lord Jesus, I thank you for your word and love towards me. I know I am a sinner who has been deceived by the world and deserves, death. Therefore, I come to you for soul salvation and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you LORD for saving me in Jesus name.


Pray For Me

   I pray for your son, Joseph Edem Bassey. Bless him and keep him, make your face shine upon him and fill him with Thine excellent spirit. Use him to fulfill your perfect will in Jesus name, amen!

 If you prayed that prayer, I want to say congratulations and thank you for praying for me. God bless you.

  1. Praise the LORD brother....yea very true as man disobeyed they fell from grace(spiritual realm) to physical or carnarlity where there are born and to die. Just b'coz sin cannot live with God coz He is holy everything unholy is cast out from His holy realm. So man is born into the physical realm to die coz physical is temporal realm and God do not want the reproduction of sin to be eternal. So God kept humanity in the physical realm that at the fulness of time that God in Christ Jesus be born into the physical realm to deliver humanity from their sins and that deliverance is called salvation and salvation is from nowhere else but from the LORD....thank God for my Yeshua Hamasaiach Adonai Eloyhim. Bless you my brother.
