3-1-2020 “AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM! John 1:14-18, 11-12

Please listen to these audio study’s. This blog only highlights the study and there is tons of Biblical information on the audio study that the confines of this blog can not express.

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a Biblical study that’s goal is to look at the life of Jesus through a lens of those who were there.  This is the ninth study of the series, the first three studies set the foundation of the series.

Last week we took a deeper look into Leprosy and the Purity Laws.  We learned Jesus didn’t need to do the first three steps of the Purity Law because Jesus is God in the flesh and no impurities can enter Him and He wrote the law, healed the Leper and declared him clean. When God declares us clean we are clean, God doesn’t need any man to say anything. Jesus didn’t break the law He’s telling us the law is fulfilled. The immediate touch of Divinity to Humanity.

This week we study how Jesus further teaches the transition the Jewish folks from the Law to Grace (John 1:17).

Jesus continues to reveal Himself to the Jewish people (John 8:58) and the Jewish leaders wanted to stone Him for not only saying He was Yahweh but also for speaking the name Yahweh (John 8:59), because the Jewish people were not allowed to speak the name Yahweh.

In Col.1:19 and Col.2:9 when Paul says “fullness” he is saying all the Divinity of God.  In John 1:16,14,17 he is saying that Jesus is full of the Divinity of God.  Jesus came to earth to declare God to humanity.  Humanity’s part is to receive the Divinity of God (John 1:16,12,11).

In Matt.15:24 Jesus says He came to Earth for the Israelite’s.  It’s important to know that in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John books all happened under the Old Covenant under the Mosaic Law.  The New Covenant did not start until the day of Pentecost.

When we get saved the Divinity of God enters into us just as it did to the Leper and the woman with the issue of blood.  In John 20:21-22 we see the outflow of Divinity to humanity, but this was special anointing just so they could understand His teaching during the 40 days.  In Luke 24:44-45,49 shows that they were anointed with this understanding and then told to wait in Jerusalem until they received the Holy Spirit (“dunamis” from last weeks study).

In Gal.4:4-6 tells us that if we do not have the Divinity of God indwelling us we are not children of God (Rom.8:9a,10a,11a).  Jesus came to give His life for us on the cross and He came to give His life to us through the indwelling of His Holy Spirit (John 14:16-20, Gal.2:20).

We have the ability to know if God’s Holy Spirit dwells in us (2Cor.13:5) and it’s critical that we know whether or not we have received God’s Holy Spirit.

Jesus’ three and half year ministry was a transition from the law to grace.

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Joh 1:14 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.

Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Joh 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
Joh 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Luk 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
Luk 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
