Glorification of the Human

That the Lord made his Human Divine from the Divine in Himself, may be evident from many passages in the Word, of which those will now be adduced which prove:

  1. That this was done successfully; which are these: —“Jesus grew and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon Him” (Luke 2:40). — “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men” (Luke 2:52)
  2. That the Divine operated by the Human, as the soul by the body.  This is evident from these: “The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He seeth the Father do” (John5:19). — “Of Myself I can do nothing, but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.  He that sent me is with me: He hath not left me alone” (John 8:28-29; 5:30; 12:49-50; 14:10; 16:32).
  3. That the Divine and the Human operated with unanimity, appears from these: — “What things soever the Father doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19). — “As the Father raised up the dead and quickeneth them, even so the Son quickeneth whom He will” (John 5:21). —“As the Father hath life in Himself, so hath He given to the Son also to have life in Himself” (John 5:26; 17:7).
  4. That the Divine is united to the Human, and the Human to the Divine, is evident from these: — “If you have known me, ye have known my Father also, . . .and have seen Him.”  He said to Philip, desiring to see the Father, “Have I been so long with you, and hast thou not known Me, Philip?  He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father . . .Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? . . .Believe Me, that I am in the Father , and the Father in Me” (John 14:6-11). –“If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not: but if I do, believe the works; that ye may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father” (John 10:37-38). —That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee” (John 17:21; 14:20; 10:29-30; 16:15; 17:10; 17:2; Matthew 28:18).
