The Perfect God Becomes The Perfect Man

A Man Made a Mess of Humanity.  The God-Man Cleaned It Up.

by Pastor John Hamel


 “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin…and the virgin's name was Mary.  And the angel came in unto her… And when she saw him, she was troubled...And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. …behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.” (Luke 1:26-31)


Jesus had to be born of a virgin for the following reason.  


All babies get their blood from their father.  This means that all babies get their blood from Adam, blood tainted by sin. (Genesis 3)  


Jesus came to Earth to be our “perfect” substitute, dying in our place, paying the death penalty for our sin. (Romans 6:23)  


Had He gotten His Blood from a human father, He would not have been an acceptable, “perfect” sacrifice. 


This is why He was born of a virgin.  Creator God supernaturally planted a specially created seed in a virgin girl’s womb.  That way Jesus’ Blood would come from that specially created seed.  


Jesus’ Blood came from a Perfect, Holy God, making Him the “perfect” sacrifice for our sin!


This made Jesus fully God and fully man.  He was not some half-God, half-human freak!  Jesus was the Perfect God-man, similar to Adam before he sinned.  This is why the Bible calls Jesus “The Last Adam”. (1Corinthians 15:45)  


It’s important that we understand Jesus’ humanity because only a real, live perfect human being could pay for the sin of humanity. 


It was a man who got the entire race in trouble with Holy God.  So, it had to be a man who would bail us out.  


Therefore, God and Jesus devised a plan where they could do it for us.  Jesus would become one of us and “take the heat” putting the problem of sin behind us. (2Corinthians 5:21)


Jesus was born as all human babies are born -- only of a virgin.  The umbilical cord was cut.  He cried as Joseph handed Him to Mary.  


As a boy, Jesus apprenticed as a carpenter, mastering the skill, smashing fingers and pulling out splinters from His hands in the process. (Luke 2:6,7) 


Jesus was as emotional as any human being.  He became angry when religious leaders didn’t want to help suffering people. (Mark 3:1-6)  


Jesus also experienced tremendous compassion for all who came to Him for help. (Matthew 9:36)  


Jesus experienced hunger just like we do when our bodies burn up energy and need to be refueled. (Luke 4:1,2)  


He also thirsted as any human who’s deprived of liquids for any period of time. (John 19:28)  


Jesus’ body also required rest daily.  When He was exhausted He could pretty much sleep through anything. (Mark 4:37-39)


Jesus felt very deep love for His family and friends.  When His close friend Lazarus died, He burst into tears. (John 11:35)  He grieved deeply over the fact that the majority of His chosen Jewish people rejected His claims to Deity. (Luke 13:34) 


Jesus was even tempted by sin just like you and me.  Only He never gave in to sin as we have.  That’s why we need Him. (Hebrews 4:15)  


Because He never yielded to sin when tempted, He qualified to become our perfect substitute at Calvary’s Cross. 


Someone had to pay the price for Adam’s sin and the sin of all humanity.  It had to be a man, a perfect man.  


A man, Adam, made a mess out of humanity and only the Perfect Man, Jesus, was equipped to clean it up!  


Again, this is why the Bible calls Jesus the “last” or the “second” Adam. (1 Corinthians 15:45)


“It was a perfect sacrifice by a perfect person to perfect some very imperfect people.” (Hebrews 10:14 Message Bible)


Do you believe this?  Say, “Jesus, You’re my choice.  I believe You came in the flesh to take the heat for me.  I not only appreciate it but I accept it.” (Romans 10:13) 


Now start expecting the supernatural – it’s what life’s all about!
