Faithful Sayings: Part 4

WHO JESUS CHRIST IS

WHAT HE ACCOMPLISHED FOR US

Originally posted on holdingforthhisword:

This fourth faithful saying has as its heart the gospel, Who Jesus Christ is and what He has accomplished for us.  If we err in these biblical doctrines then our faith is spurious and we are among those Jesus Christ condemned in Matthew chapter 7, who in surprised protest will recount their many “righteous works”, while the actual testimony of their lives denied their Lord and Savior in word and deed.

21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  22Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  23And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”  Matthew 7:21-23

Paul, by the Holy Spirit, exhorts Timothy with the gospel, reminding him that all who faithfully follow Christ Jesus will suffer persecution; we are called to stand true to Him no matter the consequences.  He also charges him to be careful with the Word of God, contrasting those who love the Lord and are obedient to Him with those who proffer false teaching.

8Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, 9for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained.  10Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.  11This is a faithful saying:   For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him.  12If we endure,          We shall also reign with Him.  If we deny Him, He also will deny us.  13If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.  14Remind them of these things charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.  15Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, right dividing the word of truth.  16But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.  17And their message will spread like cancer.  Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.  19Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal:   “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”  2 Timothy 2:8-19

 The Gospel is first and foremost about Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done for us.  He is Man, and God, the Son of God.  He literally came from the seed of David; He was born a male child and grew up in every way the same as any other child.  His humanity is revealed in the Gospels and the doctrine of the Epistles.  In his treatise on the doctrine of salvation, the book of Romans, Paul declares the humanity and deity of Jesus Christ.

1Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God 2which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, 3concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.  Romans 1:1-4

 The title, Son of God, proves His deity as established in the first chapter of the book of Hebrews.  Christ’s humanity is also declared and explained in the second chapter of the book of Hebrews.

8But to the Son He says:  “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.  9You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” 10And: “You Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; 12Like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed.  But You are the same, And Your years will not fail.”  Hebrews 1:8-12

 9But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.  10For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.  11For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12saying;  “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.”  13And again:  “I will put My trust in Him.”  And again:  “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”  14Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  16For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham.  17Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.  18For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.  Hebrews 2:9-18

 The humanity and deity of Christ Jesus are central to what He has accomplished for us.  If He wasn’t Man then He couldn’t die in our place, identifying with us, being the propitiation for our sins, taking the punishment we deserve in our stead.  If He wasn’t God then His death could not be efficacious for us; He would not have risen from the dead gaining the victory over sin, death and the devil, which victory is ours through faith in Him.  He wouldn’t be the Author of eternal salvation and He couldn’t then give us the gift of eternal life if He wasn’t God the Son.

Our salvation rests upon our faith in Jesus Christ, being united with Him in His death, so we are dead to trespasses and sins, and being raised to newness of life through His resurrection from the dead by the glory of the Father(Romans 6:4-5).  Our acceptance by Christ and possession of eternal life is completely dependent upon our faith in Him, believing what the Bible tells us about God’s Son and His work of redemption for us.  Those who are His will endure, because they have been bought with the precious blood of the Lamb and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of promise, chosen by God before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).  Like Paul, they will endure to the end, their perseverance being established upon the faithfulness of Christ, relying upon the Savior in the midst of persecution and grievous trials of their faith (2 Timothy 2:8-12).

On the other hand (2 Timothy 2:12-13), those who are not born again by the Spirit of God will not endure.  They will deny the Lord Jesus Christ, ensuring their condemnation.  They will not remain faithful to the Lord, which He requires, because He is faithful and cannot deny Himself.  The faithless will be rejected by Jesus Christ in that day to their everlasting shame and perdition.  Do not think the judgment due when those who are faithless blatantly disregard our Lord and Savior during the temptations that come to all through either persecution or the attack of false teaching is something the Lord just shirks.   He holds all accountable before His holiness.  When persecution comes we must stand fast for Jesus Christ and boldly proclaim His truth, the Word of God, the gospel of our salvation.  We must encourage one another so we won’t be deceived by sinful faithlessness.   The antidote to false teaching is given to us in 2 Timothy 2:14-19

 14Remind them of these things charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.  15Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  16But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.  17And their message will spread like cancer.  Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.  19Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal:   “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”  2 Timothy 2:14-19

All that we believe and profess about Christ must be built solidly upon the sure foundation of the Word of God.  We must not be occupied with doctrines and theologies that have their origin in the minds of fallen men which they use to mask the true doctrine faithfully given to us in God’s glorious Word.  We must know the Holy Scriptures given to us through God’s holy prophets, inspired by the Holy Spirit.  If we are unsure here, we will fall!  We will then give heed to foolish and profane doctrines which lead men and women into vile and godless living.  Look around you; do you think that devilish doctrines have proliferated based on the godlessness of church goers?

The slander spread by satan is a gross mutation that degrades and destroys profession of the truth.  If you are unsure about the origin of the doctrine taught in your church then be a good Berean and test it by the Scriptures.  If you earnestly desire to know the truth, our God of truth, our Savior Who is the truth, the Spirit of truth will lead you into all truth.  He will teach you to study the Scriptures and then know how to properly handle the word of righteousness.  He will show you the way of righteousness and then equip you to walk in it.  The Holy Spirit will turn you from the lie and ground you in the truth, if and only if, you truly belong to Jesus Christ through repentant faith in Him.  If and only if you are relying upon His death upon the cross for your reconciliation to God and His resurrection from the dead for your righteous living and eternal salvation will the Holy Spirit secure you in the truth.  Let us make our election and calling sure by persevering in the things of God and turning from the counterfeit of the world.  If you have never repented on your sin and placed your faith in Christ, may God the Father bring you to His Son for salvation.  This is another faithful saying that points us to Christ and His glorious gospel of our salvation.  May we hold fast to Him and turn from the ubiquitous lies of the enemy.  God bless us with His grace and mercy.  Love in Christ
