Why Did Jesus, God The Creator, Need To Be Born On Earth?
There are a number of important reasons why the Creator, Jesus Christ had to come to earth. As it relates to the subject of authority Jesus gave those born on earth authority (see Genesis 1:26-28). Psalms 115:16 says The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men. The Creator, Jesus said the heavens He would take care of but put mankind in authority and charge of this planet. Mankind immediately blew it and gave his authority over to Satan and he became the ruler of this world. In order for that authority to be restored Jesus had to take on flesh and blood and die in our place so he could go to hell in our place and defeat Satan and restore our authority. Without Jesus becoming a man He would have never had the authority to operate with the authority He gave mankind on this earth, in the beginning of time.
Excerpt from Chapter 6: First of all, the scripture shows us plainly that He did not operate as God in the flesh while on the earth. Phillipians 2:5-7 says, let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. Here it states He had no problem being God but made Himself of no reputation with God. The word no reputation in the Greek is the word Kenoo. It means to make void, of none effect, laid aside equality with or the form of God, deprive of force, render vain, useless, of no effect, cause a thing to be seen to be empty, hollow. The American Standard Bible states in verse 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. Jesus laid aside His privileges of being God. The New International Version says rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. Jesus referred to Himself as the Son of man more than He referred to Himself as the Son of God. Jesus did not operate in divine power but from the position of being born here and being anointed by the Holy Spirit, through the baptism of Holy Spirit. The sons and daughters of man are the ones who have authority on this earth according to Genesis 1:26-28 and Psalms 115:16. That is one reason Jesus laid aside His privileges of being God when He came to Earth.
Genesis 1:26 says God made us in ‘His image and likeness‘ (Hebrew- an exact duplicate in kind). Notice Philippians 2:7 says that Jesus, God our Creator was made in the ‘likeness of men’ (an exact duplicate of man). God made us in His likeness and then came to earth to identify with mankind by becoming a man, taking on man’s likeness.
Do you desire to be used by Jesus in healing and deliverance ministry? If so, this book can be a great tool to get you there. Mark has been teaching this subject for many years, all over the world. The fruit he has seen from this teaching has been amazing. Thousands have been healed and or delivered as leaders have put these principles into practice.
