Scriptural Christianity's Vision Of The Works Of Jesus

 

Biblical Christianity's Vision of the Works of Jesus:  

Jesus lived a holy life without sin, died as a substitution for us, descended into hell and rose again in three days, and ascended into Heaven to save us from sin, death, and the power of Satan.  He conquered sin, sickness and death on the cross.  

He now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us.  He is the only source of forgiveness or access to the Father.  Those who don't except His work are not accepting the Father and are dooming themselves to judgment.  

He works in our lives, helping us to apply and take advantage of His victory in our lives through the Holy Spirit and helping us to grow in Christ.

Jesus Christ will, in God's appointed time, return to the earth to raise the dead, judge and rule over the nations with His Church, the Body of Christ, in His everlasting Kingdom.


Questions and Answers



Question from SeekFind.net visitor:

The bible says Jesus was tempted on all points like we are, yet without sin.  My question is: could He have sinned, I know he was 100% God and 100% man, so, as a man, could he have sinned?

Answer:

We know that Jesus never sinned.  It is pretty obvious that Satan thought that he could tempt Jesus to sin, but was unsuccessful in his attempt.  We know that Jesus could be tempted to sin or else your statement above, which is from Scripture, would not be true.  We know that Jesus never once said His own words or did His own acts, but only those that the Father did through Him.  We know that it would be impossible for God to sin or to lie.  

 John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.  
 
That is not really conclusive, but look at what else Jesus said:  
 
John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.  
 
John 8:28-29 Then said Jesus to them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.  
 
John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.  
 
John 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?  
 
John 10:37-38 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.  
 
John 12:49-50 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said to me, so I speak.  
 
John 14:8-10 Philip saith to him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  Jesus saith to him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?   Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak to you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  
 
JOhn 15:9-10 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.  
 
He asks the same thing of us.  He says that we must be holy even as the Father is holy.  He shows the way to this holiness:  
 
John 17:20-26 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  And I have declared to them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.  
 
Note that this would be impossible for us to do, but Jesus comes to live in us and do the work through us.  Our part is to yield only.  God's promise is that He will give us the ability to yield even as Jesus yielded to the Father.  Notice that this prayer is a righteous prayer for this power for us to yield, and the Father will grant the prayer of Jesus.  
 
When we refuse to yield after He has provided the ability through the Holy Spirit, then we make ourselves servants of Satan:  
 
John 8:39-45 They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.  But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.  Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.  Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.  
 

Some have speculated on this question.  They have made up stories about this.  One can only wonder what would motivate such people.  It certainly does not come from the Holy Spirit.  Deuteronomy 29:29 tells us what to do with those things that have not yet been revealed.

Perhaps those who claim that Jesus sinned are actually trying to justify the fact that they want to continue in sin but escape hell.
