• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

The pre-existence of Christ (4/4)- The title Christ

Isaiah 61:1-2
The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon Me, Because Jehovah has anointed Me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent Me to bind up the wounds of the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the eyes to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of Jehovah And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn;

Psalms 2:2-3
The kings of the earth take their stand, And the rulers sit in counsel together, Against Jehovah and against His Anointed: Let us break apart their bonds And cast their ropes away from us.

Psalms 20:6
Now I know That Jehovah saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With mighty acts of salvation from His right hand.

Psalms 28:8
Jehovah is their strength; And He is a stronghold of salvation to His anointed.

Psalms 45:6-7
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has
unction You With the oil of gladness above Your companions.

Psalms 84:8-9
O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob. Behold our shield, O God; And look upon the face of Your
unction.

Psalms 92:9-10
For behold, Your enemies, O Jehovah; For behold, Your enemies will perish; All the workers of iniquity will be scattered. But You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil.

Psalms 105:15
Saying, Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.

Psalms 132:10
For the sake of David Your servant, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed One.

Psalms 132:17
There I will cause a horn of David to shoot forth; I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.

Luke 4:17-20
And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away in release those who are oppressed, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee.” And when He rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant, He sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.

Acts 4:27
For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,

Acts 10:38
Jesus, the One from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all those who were being oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

Hebrews 1:8-9
But of the Son, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of exultant joy above Your partners”;

 

The title Christ was known from the beginning and were honored by the prophets. Christ was not anointed with oil prepared from material substances, but with the divine Spirit Himself, participating in the divinity. It is convincing that by His divine anointing He is called Christ by all men throughout the world, and is confessed and witnessed to under this title, is commemorated by Gentiles even to this day, is honored as a King by His followers throughout the world, is admired as more than a Prophet, and is glorified as the true and only high Priest of God. Moreover, as the pre-existent Word of God, He was called into being before all ages, has received  great honor from the Father, and is worshiped as God.

This post, along with 3 other prior posts on the topic of pre-existence of Christ, has  shown that no one, by judging from the date of His incarnation, may think that our Lord Jesus Christ, has come into being only two thousands years ago.
