God, and the Word was God. (14) And the Word became flesh…

Words of Ministry
As the Man-Savior, the Lord Jesus possesses both the divine
nature with its divine attributes and the human nature with
its human virtues. The divine attributes are related to what
God is and has [e.g. love, light, holiness, righteousness,
etc.]. We cannot speak exhaustively concerning the attributes
of God. But we can say that the Lord Jesus possessed the
nature of God with all the divine attributes.
Here we are using “attributes” in relation to God and
“virtues” in relation to man. Because the Lord Jesus was
conceived of the Holy Spirit with the divine essence, He
possesses the divine nature with the divine attributes.
Because He was born of a human virgin with the human essence,
He possesses the human virtues. Therefore, while He was on
earth, He lived a life that was both human and divine. He was
a Man living a human life, but in that human life the divine
attributes were expressed.
According to John 1:1 and 14, in the beginning was the Word,
the Word was God, and this Word, which is God, became flesh.
God became flesh to live a life expressing Himself in
humanity. In John we see God expressing Himself in humanity;
in Luke we see a Man expressing God in His human living. As
this Man lived on earth, in His living God’s attributes were
expressed. In the Man-Savior man and God, God and man, are
mingled to form a composition full of the divine attributes
and the human virtues.
THE FIERY HEAVEN will display, one day the glory of God at the retribution on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire, executing vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; the final war of Armageddon and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.
Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all. The unceasing conflict which commenced in the garden of Eden, continues in our day in great measure, conflict between light and darkness, but it will be consummated at His coming in great power and glory. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon, was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. The Lord is a man of war, Warrior King. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory and will sit upon the throne of Glory and will reign upon this earth for thousands years. We who suffer today will associate with Him in His kingly rule. Jerusalem will be the capital city from where He will administrate His kingdom. The effect and the result will be what we read in Hab 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. This earth which is polluted by sin from the days of Noah, will be full of His glory and shined with glory. As we read in Zech. Chps.1 to 6, the display of the glory of God globally. At His incarnation, Glory appeared and His coming in power as the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the glory will be manifested like sun in the sky, shed the brilliant rays during the mid day, so will it be in that day of His glorious reign, for He is the King of glory. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the lamp thereof. Finally the Lamb is all the glory!
Hymn writer says…
Who is He that from His throne ,rules the world of light alone? Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! Tis the Lord, the King of glory; at His feet, we humbly fall, crown Him, crown Him Lord of all!
