Rounding The Corners

This is a continuation of [Four Corners], and it should not be ignored.  For aside from it being found way too acceptable to teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is not really all-powerful, all-knowing, always-present and perfect in all of His most awesome ways, far too many are being led to focus all of their attention upon His perceived humanity, which is (in effect) to drag Him down to our level, when He wants to raise as many as will up to His.

No, they know not what they are teaching.  In fact, the actual intent of focusing attention upon His perceived humanity is to make Christ Jesus appear to be as approachable as possible.

Yes, much was needed to be changed.  For after hundreds of years of it being preached that we must clean up our own acts before we can be welcome in His sight, reminding people of the fact that He did walk among us as just a regular guy seemed like a good thing to do, and it would have been, if only it was indeed true.

No, this is not to deny that while He walked among us in the flesh that Christ Jesus suffered from hunger [Luke 4:2] and fatigue [John 4:6], nor that He could become enraged [John 2:13-16] and even deeply troubled [Luke 22:42-44].  Nonetheless, all of this was solely for the benefit of those who would have trouble believing that He truly understood what they were going through in this world [Hebrews 2:14-18].  For He most certainly was not just a regular guy [Matthew 8:23-27].

Yes, it can argued that Christ Jesus’s power was not His own.  For it is written: Then Jesus, full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led in (by) the (Holy) Spirit. [Luke 4:1 AMP]

There are many other verses that allude to this, such as [John 5:30] and [John 6:37-40], but there is no getting around [John 1:1].  That is, unless you go as far as to rewrite the verse to fit what you want to believe, such as in the [New World Translation].

By the way, does not Luke 4:1 refute the claims that His Holy Spirit could not enter into this world until Christ Jesus returned to His Kingdom of Heaven?  That falsehood is based upon a gross misunderstanding of what Christ Jesus told His disciples on the eve of His crucifixion [John 16:5-7].  For instead of Him saying that His Holy Spirit could not come, He was merely reminding them of what He had already revealed, which was that He would always be with them in a different form after He gave Himself up as the sacrifice for all of our sins [John 14:15-20], which was always part of the plan [John 15:1-8].

Be assured that as it was with them [John 14:10-14], so is it in the same way with all who are truly in Christ Jesus [Mark 16:17-18]—even in this day and age [1Corinthians 12:1-13:13].  Nonetheless, it would do us well to understand that everything depends upon what [our Heavenly Father] wants to accomplish in and through someone [1 Corinthians12:11].  For those who want to believe that they have been actually given power and the authority to wield it as they see fit will not be welcome to spend all of eternity with our Heavenly Father in His Kingdom of Heaven as an heir to all that is His in glory, come Judgment Day [Matthew 7:21-23].

Alas, when a foundation is made smaller, it is made less stable to build upon.  Woe be it unto those who would rather believe the false things that are taught about Christ Jesus [2 Timothy 4:2-4] than humbly accept what He actually says is absolutely true about Himself [Matthew7:24-27].
