We are continuing with the Life of Jesus as Son and we study His Sonship as Son of God and Son of Man. We acknowledge the need to believe in the Lordship of Jesus for our Salvation.
We however notice that He did not come to present Himself as Lord or to teach us about His Life as Lord.
Angels will tell you better about that Life which Jesus lived from the beginning of times. The Life which was hidden even to the Angels is the Sonship of Jesus.
This life was in itself a mystery that eventually unraveled at the Cross of Calvary and during resurrection.
Though the Romans said they are crucifying the King of Jews to the Father He sent the Son to be crucified.
This picture He painted through Abraham and Isaac when they went up Mount Moriah. Isaac was not portrayed as a Prince in the Altar but as Son of Man in the Altar. Crucifying the Lord was not the goal but Crucifying the Son was the goal.
We have studied many stories of the Crucified Lord but we have not seen the revelation of the Crucified Son.
Father God played out this whole drama through Isaac laying down on the altar so as to begin the Story of the Crucified and Sacrificed Son.
Father God poured down the Life of
His Son on the Cross more than our theology of the Life of the Lord. Jesus was given to us as Son though born as Child.
Missing the Story of The Crucified Son is as lethal as missing the Son’s Prayer.
Satan did not say: If you are Lord turn these stones into Bread. He said: If you are The Son…. Son is a Hidden Place in Jesus which really bothered Satan.
In His Lordship there is no one who would even have arrested Jesus. Sonship of Jesus is what defeated Satan in the Cross of Calvary.
In His Lordship He would have called a legion of angels to come and fight off the challenge. Matthew 26:53-54
Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Jesus says I can exercise my Lordship and angels will come down! But I choose to exercise my Sonship for the fulfillment of the scriptures.
The demons did not want to capture the Lord Jesus. They believe in His Lordship and they tremble! They wanted to capture the Son Jesus!
They did not understand the secret of the Sonship.
Let me give you some Light; the Lamb is in the Son but the Lion is in the Lord and King. The Lamb nature of Jesus is in His Sonship just as it was in Isaac. In the Sonship is a defenseless Lamb who puts His trust in the Father. Oneness is in Sonship and not in Lordship.
Today many people in Ministry are chasing Power in Lordship and they miss Oneness in Sonship.
The five fold Ministry has been sent to equip the Church Till we come to the Unity of Faith and the Knowledge of the Son.
Accepting Jesus as Lord puts us at the heaven’s gate but The Revelation of His Sonship is our Destiny. This is where we are developed towards. Ephesians 4:13-13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
Knowledge of the Son is our Destiny.
The Church is the Body of the Corporate Son.
We have a theology of the Church as the Body of the Corporate Lord; but Sonship precedes Lordship.
This was just laying of a foundation of the deeper mysteries of the Life of Jesus as Son. Let’s see more in the next installment.
