Jesus Came To Be

(Christ) being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

Hebrews 1:3

Robert Lee wrote these words as to why Jesus came down to the world of ours.

  1. To be the Prophet of God? He did come with a message from the Most High, and such a message! It was entirely original and unique. He was the (not a) prophet of God, and yet that was not His primary mission.
  2. To be Revealer of God? “Shew us the Father and it sufficeth us” said one of His disciples to our savior, thus articulating man’s age long hunger and passionate desire. Now Jesus did reveal the unseen. He declared “He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father” marvelous statement, yet that was not His supreme mission.
  3. To be the Ruler of God? He was not only born of the tribe of Judah, but of the family of the Davidic line. He entered Jerusalem as King after three and a-half years’ ministry. He claimed the throne of David. But He was rejected. Yet, He must ascend that throne by and by. The next king of united Israel must present and prove his decent from David. Only one person can do this- the Man Christ Jesus. For all genealogical registers were burned at the destruction of Jerusalem and burning of the Temple, A.D. 60, and the only descendant of David who can present his genealogy is Jesus, for that has been preserved in perpetuity in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Yet He came to do something very important, before He could reign.
  4. To be the Lamb of God? YES!! Hebrews 1:3 declares the primary work He came to do. He came to be a man and die. Seeing He came to purge our sins, why spend so much time in these early chapters of Hebrews to prove His Deity and His Majesty? Ah, the importance of the work performed is proved by the greatness of the Agent. The more important work of the State is entrusted to the most important servants. When the King entrust a duty to his first born Prince, all are conscious of the importance of the task.
