Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Jesus was called Son of David. What is to give a thought is can we still call Jesus Christ today as Son of David?
We have a scripture in Luke where Jesus questions people who referred to Him as ‘Son of David’.
People do not realize Mary the mother of Jesus was not referred to as mother of Jesus after His death and before His resurrection, she is referred to as ‘mother of James’ who was also her own son.
This interesting relationship is not only in the case of Jesus who was Lord who humbled Himself and became man but also for those who are in Christ. Natural relationships are existent till a person in alive in the flesh, the moment their spirit leaves the flesh the person is neither male nor female so how can the person be anyone’s father, mother, husband, wife, son daughter…
Many a times I ask the congregation who will stay with them in the ‘bungalows’ which they will inherit in Heaven. They immediately jump to state their immediate family members. When I ask about the others, then they realize it has nothing to do with our earthly family members.
True our natural / earthly relationships are temporary but that also does not mean we can ignore them. God has placed us for a purpose so we need to take responsibility of that which the Lord has given thus no man or woman can marry another till she or he is alive, even if they are separated with cause.
It is only the truth that can set us free. We need to come out of our flesh and bones to inherit His Kingdom and let us not wait till we die for that for it may be too late.
Lord You are Almighty God. You God are Spirit, your Kingdom is not of this world – a natural world but is a Spirit Kingdom and flesh and bones cannot inherit it. Lord we pray let not only in death we be separated from our flesh and bones for it may be too late, but while we are alive may we overcome our earthly nature and put on our heavenly nature as Sons of God…
This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Luke 20:44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?
Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
Mark 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
Mark 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Matthew 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
