DID JESUS REALLY BECOME FLESH?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:1-3, 14
WHO WAS JESUS MADE LIKE WHEN HE TOOK HUMANITY?
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:14-17
WHO WAS ONE OF HIS EARTHLY ANCESTORS?
Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; Romans 1:1-3
WHAT TYPE OF FLESH DID HE TAKE UPON HIMSELF?
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:3, 4
WHAT DOES THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST DENY?
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the fleshis not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 1 John 4:3
NOTE: The Greek word (sarx) here, translated flesh, always refers to flesh touched by the fall. Never once is it used in reference to unfallen or sinless flesh. For one to teach that Jesus came in a humanity unlike ours, is to accept a teaching of antichrist. When we give to His human nature a power that is not possible for man to have in his conflicts with Satan, we destroy the completeness of His humanity.
WHO DOES THE BIBLE SAY JESUS WAS MADE LIKE?
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: Philippians 2:5-7
NOTE: The phrase "made Himself of no reputation" means literally "emptied Himself." When He became man, He emptied Himself of His Godly powers to meet the Devil on the same ground we must meet him on. These three powers were His omniscience (all knowing), omnipotence (all powerful), and omnipresence (all present).
DID JESUS KNOW ALL THINGS WHILE IN HIS HUMAN FORM?
But of that day and that hour His knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Mark 13:32
HOW ONLY WAS JESUS ABLE TO DO THE THINGS HE DID?
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto 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....
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 5:19, 30
HOW MUCH DID JESUS SAY HE COULD DO ON HIS OWN?
Then said Jesus unto 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. John 8:28
TO WHOM DID JESUS ALWAYS KEEP HIS WILL SUBMITTED?
And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.... He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. Matthew 26:39, 42
HOW DID JESUS SAY WE ARE TO OVERCOME SIN?
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Revelation 3:21
WHAT PROMISE HAS GOD GIVEN TO US?
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
