Spirit of God dwelt in Jesus


Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

the word of Jesus, John 14:10

Our bodies are just vessels of our souls or spirits. Our spirits were created by God but Jesus is special since his spirit is a portion of God that went out from Him _and that’s what made Jesus also God. When God created the universe He sent forth his ‘word’, and this ‘word’ was the one which created all things. The Gospel of John says, “In the beginning was the Word”, so there’s no Son yet in the beginning of Creation but the Word. The reason why the Son was manifested is because mankind fell to sin. The task of this word or spirit of God was to be part of humanity so that to defeat the devil through perfect obedience of the law (1 John 3:8). God sent His Word or Spirit and entered the Earth in human body so that to save humanity from perishing. In Psalm 2:7 God decreed, ”You are my son, today I have become your Father”. Why God has become the father of the Word? Because He was not the father of the Word in the previous. The Sonship of Jesus is not biological in nature but spiritual through a divine decree. This is what the apostle John meant when he said in his Gospel, “and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). God promised to Moses that He will raise an Israelite to be His speaker (Deuteronomy 18:18-19), and He will put His spirit on him (Isaiah 42:1).
