Nature of Jesus – Jesus and the Father are one. The prince of life and captain of salvation creates the heaven and earth in the beginning concurrently with the Father. Jesus creates and also saves. Jesus is eternal Lord of lords and king of Kings. He is able to save completely and finally lead to heaven. The church is the focus, priority, etc of Jesus on earth. The Lord is the head of the church. Nothing changes Christ nature. Imperfect church is not of Jesus. The Lord labours to present all perfect and spotless in the church, seeing that without which, nobody makes heaven. Jesus says
I am alpha and Omega, the first and the last, and what thou seest , write in a book and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia, unto Ephesus, unto Smyrna, and unto Pegamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto LaodiceaRevelation 1:11
The head of the church descended after he ascended to the Father to one of the disciple and intimated him to dispatch the message to the seven living churches in Asia. In the days of Jesus open ministry, He had been speaking in sundry times and divers occasion to his disciples to stand spotless, perfect, make disciples build the church etc.
Today the Lord commands us to do the same.The Alpha and Omega builds the church as God commanded. Though Jesus is God , He does not make equality with the Father in battle of church planting, church building and sundry. Here the Lord come to Union with the Father,thus calling upon His disciples to submit to Him and have a share in His own nature. Jesus said to Peter
And I say unto thee that thou art peter, and upon this rock I will build my rock: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it……..Mathew 16:18
The church is not your property she belongs to Jesus. Let Jesus build his church according to his teaching, but through you. Do not reverse a little from Christ commandment and teaching in the battle of church building. The church must be kept holy for the masters use.
Jesus reveals divers things to John about himself and the church. Jesus and the church are one. Jesus said
The mystery of the seven star which thou sawest in my right hand and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven Stars are the angels in the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churchesRevelation 1:20
The living churches is in the hands of Jesus, and her wherever he wills, but according to his teachings. Here the wise build the church according to Christ teaching and live.
NOTE: Christ Divine nature, holiness, total submission to God and power to build the church is the nature of Jesus.
