The shed Blood of God’s Lamb, Who now sits on heaven’s throne, Who overcomes all satan’s (sin)power
Rev. 5:6, “And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts (literally: “living creatures”), and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.”
After His resurrection and ascension the Lamb of God sends out of His throne in heaven His almighty Holy Spirit, Who after our repentance and complete surrender shall save us from all satan’s (sin)power by sharing us His death and resurrection. This grace of Him He will accomplish by leading us on the crossway, which He has brought about for us. So we will grow into divine life, which He graciously shall grant us, by which we will meet our heavenly Father God.
I. The formation of the way of the cross by which the Lamb of God overcomes all satan’s (sin)power
The incarnation of God’s Son
At God’s time the Son of God put down His divine glory and left His heavenly throne. He destroyed Himself and came on earth in Mary’s womb as a Cell and joined Himself with an egg of Mary, so joining Himself with the sinful mankind in order to reconcile her with God as her representative by dieing as sacrifice of redemption on Calvary’s cross in order to save her from eternal death. So the Son of men came into existence, Immanuel, our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of man, the 2nd Adam.
John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh (and thus Man), and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.”
Rom. 1:3, “(Paul.. separated unto the Gospel of God..) Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed (in Greek: spermatos) of David according to the flesh;”
Philip. 2:5-8, “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: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
In the original Greek scripture of Romans 1:3 we read that He was made of the “spermatos of David”. This means that before His crucifixion in the carnal body of the Lamb of God also lived the sinful nature (DNA) of David. Therefore He in all points was tempted like we are. Yet without sin (see Hebrews 4:15).
