The Man Christ Jesus

The death and resurrection of Christ has settled the sin question. In believing the good news, we are now forgiven and cleansed — purified from our sins.

But our forgiveness and cleansing by the once for all sacrifice of Jesus Christ is only part of the good news. Jesus died, but He rose from the dead. And after His resurrection, He ascended to be seated at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. In an era of declining morality and open rebellion against God and against His Anointed One, we can take great comfort in this revelation that a majestic, overruling Presence resides in glory.

The Majesty still fills the throne room of heaven. The angels and archangels and seraphim and cherubim continue their celestial praise of "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty." This is not some far-out concept of some fringe cult. This is straight from the Word of God: When Jesus "had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven" (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus returned to the position He had occupied throughout the long, long ages past.

An earnest Christian worker and serious student of the Bible, with whom I have had correspondence, laments the fact that our Christian preaching and teaching does not more clearly identify the risen, ascended Jesus as a Man. He has questioned preachers and Christian teachers, many of them well known, "Do you believe that Jesus Christ, now at God’s right hand, is a man, or some other being?" Very few of these Christian leaders purportedly believe that Jesus is now a glorified Man. They believe Jesus was a man while He was here on earth, but they tend to believe that He is a spirit now.


For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men — the testimony given in its proper time. 1 Timothy 2:5


Writing after Christ's resurrection and ascension, Paul refers to Christ Jesus as a man. Having taken on humanity, Christ continues to be the God Man. He is uniquely fitted to be our mediator—yours and mine!


You are my mediator, Lord, representing me to God and God to me!
