      Titles from the Bible that are used in speaking of Jesus Christ, and more on divine purposes are covered, today. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “sudheer k” (Level 3 with 1,420 points, a member since April 1, 2008) posted the following:

Jesus is son of GOD as a human and Jesus is son of MAN as God – Is my understand correct?

To us son will be born and he will be called mighty God – Isaiah 9:6
Jesus as son of man as GOD

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son – John 3: 18
Jesus is GOD
Zechariah 2: 10-11

Jehovah Said “I am coming and I will live among you and you will know that Jehovah of hosts has sent me to you”

Jehovah of hosts has sent Jehovah
Father sent Jesus

THE BATTLE AXE: More Than Salvation (11/27/2012)—While created beings and living creatures speak of law, judgment and divine will as actions and deeds performed by GOD, it is more correct to conceive these elements as sacred being (i.e., they exist as aspect of divinity), and as spirit movement and spirit process within the holy person of GOD, who is only spirit. For the sake of simplicity and to accommodate the limits of our awareness, we continue to say Father, Son and Holy Spirit as though by appearing and functioning in multiple dimension the GODhead may somehow be divided. The three are inseparable; however, this truth may only be realized through operations of GOD upon and within a believer’s spirit, and may only be communicated using depictions, figures, metaphors, and types. With this in view, to be saved is to be acknowledged and recognized as having been put forth from GOD, and continuing to display sacred image.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. (1st Corinthians 15: 45-48, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: On Asking Why (11/08/2012); Jesus, King of Earth? (10/07/2012); Parental Duty? (10/08/2012); How Was GOD Known Before Jesus?

      Christian believers generally understand that Jesus of Nazareth is given the title “Son of Man” for two reasons: (1) the title acknowledges Jesus as having the same anointing, authority, intimate relationship with GOD, and visionary spirit that was granted to several of the earlier major prophets, and therefore Jesus should be received as continuing the tradition of Moses (see Ezekiel 3: 4, 10 and 17, King James Version); also (2) the title names Jesus as the son of Adam who is heir to the priesthood from heaven that was given to mankind (Genesis 3: 21, KJV) as well as heir to the promises understood as the foundation for human hope (Genesis 3: 15, KJV).

      In the figure of Daniel, a judge, president and prophet ruling the covenant people of GOD, mankind receives the same eternal revelation that was intended for Adam (Daniel 8: 14, KJV). In the figure of Ezekiel, Jesus cleanses the Temple at Jerusalem by casting out the money changers and those selling livestock to be used for sacrifices (see Ezekiel 12: 3, 12: 9 and John 2: 13-21, KJV) and by challenging lack of faith, pride and selfishness among the priesthood (Ezekiel 34: 2 and John 11: 47-57, KJV). Jesus contends against and bruises Satan (called the king and prince of Tyrus) see Ezekiel 28 and Matthew 4: 1-11, KJV. Jesus teaches resurrection from the dead as in the valley of dry bones (Ezekiel 37 and John 11: 1-45, KJV).

      In the figure of Adam, Jesus suffers death upon the cross (see Romans 5, KJV). Through death and resurrection, Adam is restored, and receives a divine kingdom (Matthew 19: 28, KJV). Just as power to heal is given, power to forgive sin is granted mankind (Matthew 9: 6, KJV) where man is in service to Almighty GOD. The duty of created beings and living creatures is again enjoined, and mankind is to maintain divine law and divine rest (Matthew 12: 8, KJV).

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, the title “son of GOD” names Jesus as a sovereign heir of divinity (e.g., Matthew 3: 17, KJV). Divine inheritance derives through both divine law, and divine prerogative. As their offspring, Christ occupies the place of Adam (the male and female), who in union also are named son of GOD (Luke 3: 38, KJV).
As an eternal person, the Son, within the fullness of Almighty GOD, the spirit, is in union with the Holy Spirit and together are named as “the Godhead.”) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
