SEVEN FUNDAMENTALS OF THE CROSS
TWO: THE WORK OF THE CROSS
II: THE IDENTIFICATION OF CHRIST WITH US
By: Brother Cliff
Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary in fulfillment of the Edenic prophecy: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed….” Though Joseph was entrusted with raising up Jesus as his child, God was His Father. Mary was impregnated by the Holy Spirit with the Holy Seed: Christ the Living Word. Though Mary clothed the Word with human flesh, the Blood formed in the developing Christ-child in the womb was from the Seed of the Father.
The body of Jesus Christ was fully human; as concerning His flesh. It was no different than the flesh of any man or woman ever descended from Adam and Eve. And yet, the Blood flowing within the veins of His body, was and ever is, the very Blood of God!
Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
