  Study Tools

"AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH" (JOHN 1:14). WHY IS JESUS CALLED THE WORD? THROUGH WORDS YOU EXPRESS YOUR INNER THOUGHTS. THUS, WORDS ARE THE EXPRESSION OF YOURSELF. CHRIST IS GOD-EXPRESSED, GOD KNOWN, AND GOD MANIFESTED! CHRIST IS THE LIVING REVELATION OF GOD! CHRIST IS NOT AN IDEA OF GOD, CHRIST IS GOD SHINNING! WHAT DOES IT MEANS THAT CHRIST BECAME FLESH? FLESH MEANS HUMAN OR HUMANITY. WE WILL TRY TO EXPLAIN THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS SINCE CHRISTMAS IS NOT ABOUT SAINT CLAUSE OR HAVING A LOT OF PRESENTS. CHRIST-MAS IS ABOUT THE INCARNATION OF THE ETERNAL GOD FOR REDEEMING PLANS. DID GOD BECAME HUMAN? NOT EXACTLY. "THAT GOD BECAME FLESH" MEANS HE ENTERED WITHIN HUMAN FLESH AND A CREATED BODY. HE BECAME ONE WITH THIS HUMAN BODY, BUT HE DID NOT STOP BEING GOD! HERE WE SEE THE UNION OF GOD AND MAN. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT DEIFICATION IN WHICH A MAN BECOMES A GOD. NO. GOD MADE A HUMAN BODY PART OF HIMSELF. HOW? I DON'T KNOW. HE IS THE COMPLETE GOD AND THE PERFECT HUMAN. HE IS A GOD-MAN. KIND LIKE A HYBRID. BUT WHY DID GOD CAME DOWN TO BECOME A MAN? IT IS LIKE A HUMAN BECOMING AN INSECT. WHAT A HUMILLIATION! GOD'S INCARNATION PASSION WAS LOVE! HE LOVED US! CHRIST-MAS IS ABOUT THE LOVE OF THIS GOD. CHRIST-MAS IS ABOUT GOD INGRAFTING HIMSELF INTO MAN. "HE WHO IS JOINED TO THE LORD IS ONE SPIRIT WITH THE LORD". IT IS NOT THAT WE BECOME GOD, BUT THAT WE POSSESS HIS LIFE AND HIS NATURE. IT IS LIKE YOUR HAND, YOUR HAND IS PART OF YOU, BUT YOUR HAND IS NOT YOU COMPLETELY! YOUR EYE IS PART OF YOU, BUT YOUR EYE IS NOT YOUR BRAIN, NOR YOUR MIND. BELOVED, WE HAVE BEEN INGRAFTED INTO CHRIST TO ENJOY GOD! THAT IS THE MEANING OF CHRIST-MAS! IT DOES NOT MATTER IF NOBOBY GIVES ME GIFTS, THE GREATEST GIFT HAS BEEN IMPLANTED INTO ME: CHRIST IN ME! IT DOES NOT MATTER IF NOBODY LOVES ME: HE LOVED ME SO MUCH THAT HE INGRAFTED HIMSELF INTO MY SPIRIT! THIS IS CHRIST-MAS! OH THE INFINITE DEPTHS AND BOTOMLESS LOVE OF THE INFINITE INCARNATED GOD! WHEN GOD MAKE US ONE WITH HIMSELF WE DO NOT POSSESS HIS ETERNAL ATTRIBUTES SUCH AS OMNIPOTENCE, AND ALL THE OMNI'S OF GOD! ONLY GOD POSSESS THOSE ATTRIBUTES, NOT US. HERE IS THE GREATEST MYSTERY! WE ARE ONE WITH GOD, YET HE IS HE AND WE ARE WE! PARADOX OF PARADOXES! WHEN I WAS A WORM, THIS GOOD GOD BECAME LIKE A WORM IN ORDER TO REACH ME! IN ORDER TO ELEVATE ME FROM DUST, TO BE AN ORGANIC CHILD OF HIS! I CAN'T UNDERSTAND THIS ENDLESS GRACE! I DID NOT DESERVE IT, YET HE MADE ME HIS CHILD FOREVER! THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH GOD LOVES YOU! THINK HOW MUCH HE CARES ABOUT YOU THAT HE HAS MADE YOU PART OF HIMSELF! "I AM THE BRANCH, YE ARE THE BRANCHES". CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT THIS UNION BETWEEN GOD AND MAN. LET THIS CHRIST-MAS BE THE MOST PRECIOUS EVER! MAY BE YOUR EARTHL FAMILY DO NOT REMBEMBER YOU, YOUR LOVES ONES DON'T CALL YOU, YET THERE IS ONE WHO LOVED YOU SO MUCH, EVEN INFINETELY, THAT HE HAS GONE MORE FAR THAN THEM: HE HAS BECOME PART OF YOU! THAT IS HOW MUCH HE WHO IS CHRIST-MAS LOVES YOU! ENJOY CHRIST-MAS! MERRY CHRIST-MAS! AND MAY THE GOOD LORD GRANT YOU A DEEPER REVELATION OF HIMSELF IN THIS MONTH! AMEN!
