I provided the verses you "provoked".
Argue with the Lord, friend: we're done.
---BruceB on 1/26/10

We'll I apologize. Didn't know your rules. You can provoke, but no one is to provoke you. Why didn't you state ur rules to begin with,eh?

I asked for prophets....supporting your scriptures out of the Old get puffy.
Are you a preacher? They respond similar.

You cannot provide anything in the Old Testament, regarding your "whole World" scriptures from New Covenant because it is not there. Heb 8:8 for example is supported by Jer 31:31.
This was the point. I'm sure because of me you would never honor a prophet now. Forgive me.

-- Exzucuh :

Brother, The law just reveals sin, it's God who Judges us. We had not known sin, but by the law : moreover the law entered, that the offence of sin might abound b/c sin is not imputed when there is no law !!

When we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which is by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. Rom.7:5-6

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be Justified by faith. But after Faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster, and are now God's Children dead to sin in Christ by Faith : OSAO being delivered from the law and serving in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter wherein we were held living unto sin.

"To some they will...but, not me."

And I'm surprised by this?

My only theory is, Berean, you need to ask God to rid you of that spirit of disputation.

It seems to me your true purpose on these BLOGs is to engage in argument. It makes no difference to you what is true OR false--you argue against it. The lopsidedness is, you reveal NO truth other than your dabbling into foolishness.

I provided the verses you "provoked". Since you can't post any which refute this truth, you find a need to conjure up some nonsensical "churchianity" issue to attempt a pitiful insult toward me? Perhaps to throw other believers off track?

Argue with the Lord, friend: we're done.
---BruceB on 1/26/10

The Law judges sin and the wages of sin is death. The law cannot judge a man that has no sin and a man that has no sin cannot die. If Jesus did not bare the sin of the world in his body God could not accept his sacrifice nor would he allow him to die. God will not break his own Law.

Leviticus 16:8-10 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats, one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

Joh 1:29

To some they will...but, not me.
BruceB,you make a couple of points without realizing it. Too a Berean these are not supported. For churchianity they appear to work.

I asked/provoked for prophets witnessing and you couldn't or wouldn't supply any? Your O.T. out the door?

Prophets witnessing were to your benefit. Lop sided gospel (truth,good news)...without a couple of prophets to back your theories up.
---Trav on 1/26/10

If you do not believe that Jesus really took sin you will not have power over sin, that the
word says you have, and you cannot become the son's and daughters of God. And I see now why many of you are not like me, you are Carnal like the Corinthian church, not believing by by faith what the word says, but reasoning things out in your carnal mind, and that is rebellion and witchcraft, not faith, faith is obedient works by hearing the word and obeying it. Faith is not by sight. Sight is what you believe based on perception of what you have experienced. Believing Faith is going beyond reasoning and obeying God simply by what he say's do.
---exzucuh on 1/26/10

---MarkV. on 1/26/10 In the old covenant the sin of Israel was in the sacrifice and the scapegoat. God said that this was to be temporary until Jesus could bare the sin of the world. To bare something is to take it yourself to relieve someone else of the burden.
It Jesus did not take the sin of the world in his body his death could not pay for that sin.
He was not guilty of sin but he willingly took sin and the sin had no power over him to kill him because he never sinned but he gave his life freely and God accepted his blood for the atonement and now sin has no power over all who are in Christ.
---exzucuh on 1/26/10

Tom 2, I completely agree with your statement on the how He bore our sins, but never became a sinner Himself. Exzucuh gave a good passage but I believe he misinterpret the passage. "Who bore our sins in His own body on the tree..."
Which means, to bear sins was to be punished for them (Num. 14:33, Ezek. 18:20). Christ bore the punishment and the penalty for believers, thus satisfying our Holy God (3:18, 2 Cor.5:21, Gal. 3:13). This great doctrine of the Substitutionary Atonement is the heart of the Gospel. Which is sufficient for the sins of the whole world was made for all who would ever believe.

Joh 1:29 ...Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

1Jo 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

understand,at no time during christs passion,did sin enter his mortal body,or his immortal soul,or spirit.Had it he would have no moger been the perfect spotless lamb of God,who by jewish law was spotless at the time of death.Jesus took the punishment,tool our place, for every persons sins for all time.Sin was never pit upon him NEVER.Had it been anytime while he was still alive,not only would he have no longer been an acceptable redemer,but God himself would now be a sinner,and thats is sooooooo impossible.

The title of the painting in English is THE SCREAM (Skrik in the original language) and it was painted by Edvard Munch.
---Cluny on 1/23/10

Jesus had no sin but willing took all sin and paid for that sin. And because he took all sin in his person God left him all all alone. He was separated from God because of that sin and paid the price without any help from God.
Because of his faith God gave him a place at his right hand and a name above every name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow and every tongue confess he is Lord to the Glory of God his Father. God made him High Priest over the Church forever after the order of Melchizedek. He is the only salvation and way to the Father. What you ask the Father in his name he will do and the Holy Spirit comes in his Name.
---exzucuh on 1/23/10

Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,

so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Grace is Divine influence. And it can make you righteous. Where sin abounds Grace super Abounds. In other words it is the power to change your life but rebellion against the Grace of God is Backsliding. You can do every thing in your power to justify your sinful life but rebellion against Gods grace will get you the wrath of God.

Yes, you're right. But I think we're arguing two separate concepts. He "bare" our sins... in other words, he carried them... in his own body. But, He did not take on a sinful soul.

He didn't "own" our sins. He carried our sins to the altar and sacrificed Himself, in our place. The devil owned our souls through the law of sin and death. Jesus bought our souls back, with His soul.

Had our "sins" been His, He could not have redeemed us. That is why He is the sacrifice for sin. His "sinless" soul paid OUR sin-debt. He bought our sinful souls with His "sinless" soul. But, He didn't become a sinner.

We could be saying the same thing. That'd be a first: eh?
---BruceB on 1/23/10

-- Tom2 :

Brother, The infirmities of our sins which Jesus paid for us, had everything to do with the prayers & remarks of Christ from the Mount of Olives to the moment He gave up the Holy Spirit on the Cross !!!

The punishment of our infirmities was the "Cup of Agony" that caused Jesus to sweat great drops of blood in the Mount of Olives just after praying "Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me : not My will, but Thine, be done." (Luke 22:39-44), .... it also caused Him to cry-out in the ninth hour b/c Jesus, Himself, had no other reason to make that remark but only for the feelings of our infirmities.

BTW ~ I never shared Jesus didn't know exactly why He was on the Cross.

shawnt,I beg to differ christ knew exactly why he was there ,he said on more than one ocassion he would die then rise again,that he was dying for us,our infirmities had nothing to do with his remarks about his father forsaking him.
---tom2 on 1/22/10


You brought up an excellent point: Jesus never actually took on the "sin". (It's easy to mis-state when discussing such things.) He actually paid the penalty for sin, which is the resulting judgment of being under the law of sin and death: "the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

He received the punishment of sin. But, is there some difference between the punishment He received and the punishment a sinner would receive?

That's why He suffered the ultimate loneliness in His death. To pay the penalty for sin--separation from God--Jesus, as a man, suffered the judgment a sinner would receive.

His words of despair prove He paid that penalty. Yet His resurrection proves He was without sin.

//// While he hung on the cross,apparently he felt alone ////

Brother, Yes Jesus hung on His Cross alone but "He" Himself didn't feel alone, when He cried-out My God why have Ye forsaken Me, what He was feeling was the punishment of our infirmities !!

We have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but Jesus also knew & felt He would never be alone and stated in John 16:32 that the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave Him alone : and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me ... and God's Spirit was with Him, even in the ninth hour when He cried-out.

Joh 5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
39 Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Jesus PAID for all sin. If one chooses NOT to accept that fact, one rejects His sacrifice, and one is cast away. Simple: eh?

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Brethren, While it's True that Jesus existed in the earth, He never could have led an "earthly" life which leads to loneliness b/c loneliness stems from a lack of some sort, and Christ wanted for-nothing, desiring only to do what pleased our Lord by speaking only what the Father spoke : and Our Heavenly Father was always with Him.

the question was jesus lonely,a better one might be did jesus ever feel lonely the answer is in matthew 27-46,and mark 15-34 While he hung on the cross,apparently he felt alone,whether he truly was or not,but I would hope that God would know if his fathers spirit was still with him,but by what he said apparently either he was questioning God as to his crucifixion,or he felt all alone on the cross,at some point in time to make these statements.

christ was without sin,even on the cross,sin was never put on him,or in him,or around him,what happened was he was the blood sacrifice for sin,the spotless lamb of God,that was the whole idea of his passion,to take our punishment,and die for our sins,not receive them himself,but to step in place for our punishment.I have no idea who or where this idea that sin was laid upon him,it really is not scriptural.

Yes and No. Jesus said in the Gospel of John, "I am not alone, for the Father is with me."

Yet every night when everyone went to their homes, Jesus went to the Mountain to pray.

Also, remember Jesus didn't have fellowship with the disciples, he was teaching and counselling them, that's a form of fellowship because they were not on his level (he told them MANY times, "oh ye of little faith")so he got his fellowship from His Father.

When CHRIST said My GOD, My GOD, why has thou forsaken me instead of using the word FATHERRead PS 22 with understanding through the help of GOD, and you will realize that GOD did not separate HIMSELF from JESUS. At anytime. PS 22 is in most part what happened to CHRIST on the day of HIS Passion. That is why CHRIST said GOD instead of FATHER. GOD states in HIS WORD, I will never leave you or forsake you. How can GOD separate HIMSELF from HIMSELF? I believe whenever CHRIST cried, HE cried for us. Not for HIMSELF. CHRIST never had a weak moment even though HE did feel the pain and suffering. How can HE have a weak moment, HE is the Living Word.

"Emmanuel means GOD with us?"
Did you believe that when CHRIST was on the cross he said to the one thief, "Today you will be with me in Paradise". I don't think that he was preoccupied with Himself at that moment.
When Jesus said "Forgive them for they know not what they do".
And when CHRIST said at the very end, IT is finished, HE was fullfilling prophesy of HIS dying for us and defeating death.
Read PS 22 and you will see it is David doing the prophesy of CHRIST's passion and everything that happened that day.

God was always with jesus from his birth,throughout his life up until the time when he while nailed to the cross said,MY GOD ,MY GOD,WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?at that moment God turned away from jesus,and he was alone,why? because jesus had taken upon himself all sin,and as we know God does not hear,or communicate with anyone in sin.

The only time Jesus was alone was between the time he was carrying the cross until he gave up his ghost.

Besides his frineds and family before he was baptised and the apostles and strangers after he was baptised. But most of all, he was doing the will of his Father - and what better way to stay occupied than being happy performing miracles. His biggest problem was trying to be alone to communicate with his Father.
---Steveng on 1/19/10

Never a problem Bruce!
---PASTOR_JIM on 1/17/10

No, "being single" or "alone" is not the same as "being lonely" or "friendless". Jesus had chosen 12 men to be his companions and to go with him and to minister his gospel to the world. But there are moments when each person desires a companion to be with them and to pray with them. Jesus' companions were asleep while Jesus was praying and knowing that very shortly he would be falsely arrested by the worldly authorities, and manhandled and abused by the wicked sinners, and he would be stripped and executed eventhough he is proven to be innocent and holy. At this time Jesus desired that his disciples would have stayed awake with him and pray together with him, but instead they were aside sleeping.

Bruced you are talking about the one moment of sin placed on Jesus which cause the separation from his Father.

Mt 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?...
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

How much lonelier can one be than to die without God? Jesus died as a man suffering a "sinner's" death. That Godless loneliness that He suffered, in our place, is why we don't have to suffer that same fate.

Before my words are misconstrued, I will point out that God did not foresake Him: for Jesus, the man, was NOT a sinner. But He took on the suffering of sin, in every single aspect... in order to free us from the loneliness of a Godless death. Amen.

NO!! Jesus had both his Father and the Holy Spirit to keep him company. (This is another reason God didn't create man to love him, God already knows love from himself) now Jesus enjoyed the Holy Spirit without measure. Are to put it another way he had the whole Holy Spirit. Even when the Father turned his face from him and he paid for our sins he was not lonely as we use and understand the word lonely.

Loneliness most often comes from a lack of something constructive to do and if one puts a mind to it, there is always something to fill a void. In Genesis 1:26, God said, Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. Christ, the Living Word is God in the flesh and for the purpose Christ was here on this earth, I really do not believe He had any time to be lonely as we know loneliness. Purposefulness dispels loneliness.

After Jesus said that whoever partakes of his everlasting flesh and blood has eternal life, and will be resurrected, "From that many of his disciples went away, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus to the twelve, Will you all also go away?" John 6:66,67. And when Jesus was arrested to be killed, then from fear the 12 denied him. "And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him." John 8:29.

Though divine in nature. He was human. I have never known a human being that has never experienced loneliness of some kind.

I would say He would have. He left the Father to come down here, and they had been together forever.

Lets analyse the question Lonliness=feeling one self alone & longing for company & friends.As a child he was active preaching in the synagogue,as an adult travelled from town to town preach & teach performing miracleas,crowds followed him where ever he went.this is all in the book of the word.The question therefore begs to be rephrased & hence as Jack says seems silly.

There's a myth going around that "Real Christians are never lonely/depressed. They have Jesus...."

I'm just trying to get people to THINK. If Jesus were fully human, then it follows He felt NORMAL human emotions, which include loneliness.

Rembember Adam was created with emotional and relationship needs that God Himself knew He could not satisfy.

Yes at a point in Jesus' life he was or felt lonely. When he was on the cross, everyone rejected him, and he said, "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaking me"? Now to me he was lonely.

Do you think anyone could understand his strange and wonderful sayings when he was but a child? Even his mother did not. 40 days in the wilderness is a long time to spend by yourself if you are human. Jesus was alone, there was no one to share his joys and hopes and fears or to help or encourage him by counsel, advice or sympathy. Still think it's a silly question Jack?

Mima:: You need to retract your statement (God did not create man to love him)Because this is the First Commandment "Thou shalt love the Lord Thy God with your whole heart & soul"

I don't think any question is silly. And, I do think Jesus probably was lonely. He was trying to teach a new way to live and think. Many people are stubborn and refuse to see a different context; they are hard to teach. The deeper your spiritual relationship to God, the more difficult to find those who understand you because your perspectives are so different. It seems a lonely road to walk, but the thought of turning back is out of the question!

i also believe He experiences all emotions.
---anon on 6/12/06

Although some here deny it, Jesus was a man. Fully human. He experienced all the emotion of the human experience as well as the full range of temptation that we experience.
