The woman so now we've got a man without because he was the God man, Dr. Tony Evans talks about Jesus. Dual identity and what celebrating. This is the alternative Dr. Tony author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible College in Dallas Texas and president of the alternative people whose parents came from different places in the sometimes say their part. This part that no matter how many parts they list.

They only add up to 100% today.

Dr. Evans explains why that limitation doesn't apply to Jesus. Let's join them as he begins Jesus and what they mean and why they matter in the given Jesus Christ in their meeting and their impact talk about Jesus being the son of God and man.

We are talking about him partaking of two natures, the words does not refer to the fact of origin from a previous source, although that is the word Islam refers to the sharing the same nature and fulfilling of a particular task or role the Bible, Jesus Christ is both the son of God and son Amanda equally. That is a major son of God and human nature. Son of Man and both natures are resident in one person, the person of Jesus Christ to be the son of God means you have divine nature, divine nature means that divine attributes all attributes that make God God Jesus possesses so all that is true of God is true of Jesus because Jesus has God's nature. God is omnipotent on the present omniscient veracity, grace, mercy, justice, wrath, all of all things are to love God, but since Jesus. Jesus possesses all of those attributes.

One of the other aspects of God's nature is his terminology that has never been a time when God has not been since Jesus bears his nature, then Jesus Christ is as eternal as God is, which is why when we looked at Jesus the world he could say in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the word was God and the Word became less so all that makes God.

God gives resident in Jesus. But not only is Jesus the son of God. As the Son of Man, so all that makes human beings, human beings is resident in Jesus, apart from sin, he got tired.

Like any human being gets tired he had to sleep.

Like any human being has to go to sleep. He had to like any human being has to get nutrition from their food. He had to leave because people cry. He had to be tempted by the devil, because the temptation is what the devil does to human beings. All things that make people, people Jesus tells asks in his humanity buddy Paul, apart from sin. How could Jesus be fully God bearing all the attributes of deity and fully man, bearing all the attributes of humanity.

How could bowel side-by-side in one person. The answer to that is the virgin birth, the Bible says that the see of a woman married was finalized by the sperm of the Holy Spirit that shows it was not part of the process but not really being a virgin found herself pregnant.

It says by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity. He is God, so God impregnated a woman by fertilizing her, but a woman is human, so humanity and God, deity came together to create the most unique person ever to enter into human history and that is the person of Jesus Christ so that he could be called son of God and Son of Man because both natures were resident in one person made possible by the virgin birth we saw in the verse that I read in John chapter 5 verse 18 that the Jewish leaders clearly understood what he was saying when he called God his father says they thought the Killian because he made himself equal with God.

They understood that when he said God was his father he was saying. I have God's nature and you can have God's nature and not be God.

But there is a another concept of the word, son son gets lost in the nature from which it derives Jesus have divine nature. Jesus has human nature unmixed walking side-by-side in one person, one moment could be hungry. The next moment to complete 5001 member could be Thursday.

The next moment you walk away without one moment because that could rise in the DX because you got to natures operating side-by-side in one person now. In addition to the two natures.

The word son indicates a function, a function.

For example, we have coming out of our ministry what we call son of the ministry there are not biological children but they have been ordained by our church to be able to go authorized by us and minister to another location to another church in another ministry we call them sons of the ministry, not because there is a biological attachment but because there is a ministry function and because of that ministry function. They are viewed as sevens of the ministry. Paul called Timothy his son in the ministry. He wasn't Paul's biological son, but he was his ministerial son designed to fulfill a ministerial responsibility when we reported Jesus as the son of God and the son of man not only possesses the nature of both.

But he is carrying out a responsibility for both peers fulfilling a job description on behalf of God and on behalf of us, so as son of God is fulfilling what the father says, and as Son of Man is fulfilling what you and I need and as a result, he can do though one person of the one person has both operating inside of him.

So when we talk about Jesus, we talk about a whole lot more to me when talking about two natures and two ministerial responsibilities residing in one person, God has only one plan whole Bible is about one plant and that is his kingdom is God has a kingdom. There is called the kingdom of heaven as a kingdom update with the rules. There was a rebellion against the kingdom of Veria by Lucifer became Satan.

He rebelled against God and God decided to have a plan of creating a lesser creature an inferior creature. Salom says he made man a little lower than the angels, constitutionally inferior you don't fly like angels can flat will disappear like angels can disappear when you have the mentality of angels. We are lower that is inferior to angels and God decided that he would create a lesser creature and calling man and he would create this lesser creature to demonstrate what he could do with the last when the lesson was dependent upon him that he could do with more when more was in rebellion against him.

So we created an inferior being called man and he placed them on the third planet from the sun third rock to place on the third planet from the sun and he said man to establish my kingdom on earth like it is in heaven) by kingdom come that will be done on earth as it is in heaven give the kick the way my kingdom will work down here like it works. I will only do it through man. I will not do it. Apart from me.

So God restricted himself, not because he couldn't do it but he chose not to do it. He only will work through mentally tells Adam okay retreated on the 3D printing is not needed because unit that Satan builds Adam and Eve ate of the fruit so the movement handed the earth turns the earth all the to the deaf.

That's why the Bible says this world lies in the hands of the wicked one Satan all this world, but he only owns the world because so God wants his World Bank got to get it world that he can't do it directly because he restricted himself to only do it through a man so and restricting himself.

That means he had to find a man we can do it but have written man on every man born since Adam did not meet the rights and standards to be the one through hole could reclaim the earth and bring the kingdom of and manifested down, but he has to have a man because he is doing it long been so God gave a prophecy in Genesis chapter 3 verse 50.

He says that the see the woman would crush the head of the devil. The see the woman could be kept out of the that is an interesting prophecy because when it comes to the barn is the man that had an woman to have a but says God knew in advance that the one he was talking about would not have a human form, he gives the woman the name of the city so he says the seed of the woman that the man is going to crush the head of the devil, because it's got to come to a human being. The problem is when we go find this man pulled the seed of the woman who has no sin qualifies to bring God's kingdom from heaven to our somewhat God decided to do was become a man so he became a man, the deity of having entered the attic about woman. So now we've got a man without sin, because he is the God man so that's why you got a dual day. He's a son of God and he's the son of man, and he has come to retrying what the devil stole more about what happened when heaven saw her through human eyes. When Dr. Evans returns in a moment.

I'll have that contact information for you again after part two of today's message hears Tony as a son of God and Son of Man. This is why Isaiah 96 says unto us a son is given, and unto us a child is born, the son wasn't born the son was given because the sun existed before the child was born. The child was born son son was just handed over access for the death of a child and when you understand this when you come to understand that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the expectation of human history that that would be a man a human would bring God's kingdom to earth and that's why Paul called him the last Adam, because the first Adam left the South but the last Adam brought us back into God's kingdom so he you are not just saying to go to heaven.

You say to me about God's kingdom. Salvation only got you into the kingdom door but you were brought in the door you were brought into his house.

His kingdom is role his authority is the that's what useful be operating now as son of God and Son of Man, God's goal is to replicate Jesus.

Galatians chapter 4 verses four and five says that at the right time Jesus Christ came into the world for the adoption of many sons, God does not want Jesus to be an only child, unique child, unique son, not to be an only child.

He is to replicate himself over and over and over and over and over and over again every time a person gets say that is except Jesus Christ as Savior and available on again they have begun the process of finding out.

As Jesus's brother or sister to become fall to the image of Christ, so that what Christ wants to father to him as well so that we are experiencing the life of God through the life of his son by the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer is what we do with the fact that he's called son of God.

Some of me. Why does it turn your Bibles to John chapter 1 verse 45. What's this Philip found Nathaniel and said to him, we have found him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets wrote the Old Testament was right about this one was to come. Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph Joseph stepson Nathaniel said to him, can any good thing come on, Nevins had a bad reputation. Philip said come and see him see visa. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and said to him being hauled an Israelite indeed in whom there is no deceit. Nathaniel says to Jesus, how do you know me, you act like you know me I would never met. How do you know me. Jesus then answers and says to him, before Philip called you you were under the fig tree, and I saw you.

Nathaniel says Rabbi you are the son of God, you are the king of Israel. You are God in the flesh, and you are the prophesied changes that the Old Testament promise.

The promise that in Daniel chapter 7 verses 13 and 14 that the ancient of days, the father that would be a son of man who would come and reign as king.

All Indonesian so they knew this prophecy was there, but now he says you're at you, the son of God to clap you the son of God.

Now, stay with me, Jesus now answers because you confessed that I am the son of God because you have accepted my dignity. You will see once this, the son of me like it would take the domestic Jesus not take his phrase Jesus switches it, you probably the son of God, show you what man can do because you recognize my deity.

You will watch my humanity go to work, because verse 51 says you truly truly shall not show you will see open angels of God ascending and half sending on Jacob's ladder in the Old Testament but on the Son of Man in the New Testament who lived Jacob's ladder you're gonna say once this happened, open only got some funky wait for help in the open. You want to see some from mail come down here and show you a little something something to give you little break lesson right quick because a large 51 it says truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven open the great lesson is the word in verse 51 pronouncing somebody say you integrate floral, not singular. He's only talking to Nathan he says Daniel because you declared what you just declare all will see rose from two to not alert you and I just showed up in the passage is not just related to that one man gets related to Christian when Jesus Christ is the connecting point from your history of God to heaven you'll see the son of God has Son of Man making that personal connection to God, begins with the understanding that Christianity isn't about bad people becoming good. It's about dead people becoming alive through the forgiveness of sins that can happen for you today and there's nothing more important.
