Christology from the Greek meaning was translated khristos and logia in the study of Christian theology, and this study teaches about the person of Christ ,his ability as God ,his ministry’s on earth ,his death & resurrection and his second coming .
THE PERSON OF CHRIST
Numerous verses of the scripture both old and new testament affirmed and give us a distinct understanding of who Christ is , there are several of testimonies that revealed the person of Christ , his mission ,pre existence, and his sovereignty as king of kings . below are few testimonies about his person .
1 . The prophets of old like Isaiah, moses , Micah ,Jeremiah, and Daniel testified about him . Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7,Micah 5:2 ,Mathew 3:11.
2 . The Disciples which are his Apostles testified of him ,what they have seen, hear and perceived ,the holy word of life (Christ ) Mathew 16:13-16, 1st john 1:1 .
3 . The testimonies of Jesus himself ,John 10:30…
THE PRE EXISTENCE OF CHRIST
This was referred to as christophanies in theology, the pre existence of Christ in old testament was not so noticeable to some Christians . there are several instances that described his existence , his appearance commensurated him different name , captain of the lord host, angel of God , messenger of his presence , the lord of host … His pre existence from Colossians 1:15-17 & Genesis 1:1-28 give a succinct and indepth meaning to him as God in human , member of the Trinity, the creative power of earth and the heavenlies …
THE ABILITY THAT PROVE HE IS GOD .
In the knowledge of the deity of Christ ; looking at his name as the son of God , member of the Trinity,God in human ,the lord of host .Revelation 1:17-18 revealed the unsearchable person of Christ as been terrifies ,uncontestable,powerful, and unimaginable insomuch that he fell down as a dead man at his feet ! The abilities that prove him as God are very awesome and they goes beyond human reasoning ,scientific analysis and doctrines . He said in Revelation 22:12-13 ; I’m the alpha and omega which means the first and the last , from the Greek alphabet . Christ is the begining of all and in him all things consists both heaven ,earth ,dominion, power and throne . Let look at the seven attributes that prove him as God :
1 .He is eternal ,he has no end and he his the beginning ,without him there’s no beginning – Isaiah 9:6, 1st john 5:11.
2 . He is unchangeable – Malachi 3:6, Hebrew 1:8-12,13:8
3. He is omnipresent- Mathew 18:20 ,28:20 ,Colossians 2:3.
4. He has the power and ability to forgive all sins -Luke 5:23 ,Luke 7:47.
5. He is beyond comprehension -Mathew 11:27, Romans 11:33-36 ,Ephesians 3:8,19
6 . He is omnipotent ,I.e all powerful -Phil 3:20-21, Revelation 1:8,22 :12-13.
1 .THE CHRISTLINESS THEORY ;This theory confine every thought of the pre existence of Christ as a mere love & sacrifice flowing through human race and finally find it expression and completion in Christ . This is otherwise known as THEISTIC EVOLUTION.
2.THE HUMANISTIC THEORY ; This theory go against the pre existence of Christ as deity .Biedman the German theologian says the person of Christ before his appearance in the earthly corporeity (flesh) pre existed in a pre earthly condition with God as the image of God and consequently as the archetypal pattern of humanity !
3 . THE ANGEL THEORY ; The Russelites deny the essential deity if Christ . John Rutherford’s book revealed that Christ was a literally born son of God confirming the fact that God has two sons : Lucifer and logos (Christ)… These three theories are false ,unscriptural, and erroneous about the person of Christ .
THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST
Christ ministry while on earth was strictly based on the work of emancipation /liberation ,salvation from sins , redemption from destitutions , reconciling us back to the Father, deliverance from satanic oppression, teaching the word of God with all passion, and proclaimation of the danger to come for the unsaved Romans 5:14 ,1st corin 15:22,45. Khristos( the anointed ) act 10:38 was anointed without measure for the emancipation of God’s people from oppression, he wrought great deliverance and his fame went abroad all over every villages ,towns, cities ,and nations, Isaiah 61:1-4.
Hebrew 2:14 make it clear the greatest work of deliverance that Christ has done for humanity , after his death on the cross he went on our behalf to recover that which man lost to Satan in the beginning . The greatest victory,liberation ,and deliverance that ever come to man was perfected at the death of Christ his resurrection attested his sovereignty over every devils ,principalities and powers ,Colossians 2:15, 1st corin 15:17.
Liberal doctrine says that there is no visible bodily return of Christ back to earth ,but christ is already in your heart . Beloved , at this point I wouldn’t like you to be ignorance of Christ promises in respect to his second coming which will herald every saints into his promises and judgment to the sinners 2nd peter 3:8-13 . The world may dispute Christ but they cannot deny or delay his coming …2nd Thessalonian describes a very turbulence ,horrible and great events after the rapture 2nd thessa 1:7-10. The aftermath of the ungodly after rapture is eternal judgment and condemnation ,2nd peter 3:11-13. Beloved, how prepared are you for the coming of our lord Jesus Christ ?
