Praise the Lord! There is a MAN in the Glory, whose Life is for us! ( Old Hymn that I still enjoy to this day )
Thank God for His Word, to clear up any confusion we may have concerning the Person of Christ.
39 See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you behold Me having.
40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
41 And while they still did not believe for joy and were marveling, He said to them, Do you have anything here to eat?
42 And they handed Him a piece of broiled fish;
43 And He took it and ate before them.
I think sis that this is one of the reasons that the Lord ate the fish after His resurrection, to show to those around Him that He was not a ghost, but He was the Resurrected Glorified Man, Jesus Christ. He told Thomas, to put his finger in the nail wounds of His hands and in the wound on His side. Even after Resurrection, and to this day, the wounds are there as proof of Christ's humanity. How beautiful is this!
Then He said to Thomas, Bring your finger here and see My hands, and bring your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.
This shows us that the Lord did indeed have a body that can be touched, as any Man can be touched. Today, He is this Man in the Glory, ministering Himself to us, not just in His divinity, but in His uplifted glorified Humanity. He did not strip away His Humanity but ever lives before the Father to Mediate and Advocate for us as a Man who understands our weaknesses and knows how to supply us with all the human virtues to go on in this christian life.
I find it amazing that many believers have this concept of the Lord. That somehow, He stripped away His humanity after His resurrection. I know it is hard for us to comprehend, but today, the Godhead is no longer just divinity, but Humanity has been added to God in His divine Trinity. God has been enriched further with all the human experiences of Christ as a Man.
Stephen, the first martyr for the Lord's name saw Jesus, the Man, in His humanity, standing at the right hand of the Father while he was being stoned for the sake of the Lord's testimony.
But being full of the Holy Spirit, he looked intently into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God;
Even when the Lord's return, He speaks of Himself coming back as the Son of Man... not just as the Son of God in His divinity.
For the Son of Man is to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will repay each man according to his doings.
In the coming Kingdom for 1000 years He is still the " Son of Man'
And Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you that you who have followed Me, in the restoration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
How blessed we are to know, that the Person we pray to, the One we turn to us still a Man, a God Man full of all the attributes of Divinity and the virtues of Humanity. Such a One is here for us. Loving Us. Shepherding us day by day.
