DAY 7 MONDAY: MAY 2018

JESUS CHRIST: THE BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER!

I will declare the decree: the Lord had said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’ (Psalm 2:7).

 

The word, “Begotten” is a theological terminology which is simply referred to as legitimately adopted with full rights and privileges. The Bible says in the opening text that I will declare the decree: the Lord had said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You.’ When the Bible says that Jesus Christ is the begotten of the Father, it simply means that Jesus Christ is the first to be legitimately adopted by the Father; hence, the Firstfruits of Resurrection.

When Jesus Christ was baptized at the River Jordan by John the Baptist, as soon as He came out of the water, the Bible recorded that heaven was opened and behold God the Father declared thus, “…this is My begotten Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). This was an opened declaration from heaven by God the Father that Jesus Christ is the legitimately adopted Son of God with full rights and privileges.

Furthermore in the transfiguration of Jesus Christ, the Bible also recorded that God the Father again declared Jesus to be His begotten Son thus, “While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, ‘This is My begotten Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him” (Matthew 17:5). Jesus Christ, the legitimately adopted Son of God is the only One qualified for us to hear and listen to.

 

Daily Tip: Jesus Christ, the begotten Son of God the Father is the only One qualified for us to hear, listen and take instruction from. Shalom!

 

Golden Text: But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming (1 Corinthians 15:23).
