Question: Is there any scripture to say that Christ did not become a man?
Answer: Christ Jesus is the eternal Son of God, and both Old and New Testaments affirm conclusively that from His birth into this world, He was God and Man in one person here on earth. He is now God and Man in glory, and will ever he God and Man. “In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” Col. 2:99For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (Colossians 2:9). “Holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens.” Heb. 7:2626For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; (Hebrews 7:26).
Answer: Here we are taught that the Spirit makes intercession for us. He it is who is the Author of every true and right desire in our hearts. He teaches us to pray to the Father, in the Name of Jesus. It is only by the Spirit that we can pray as we ought. As to the question of praying to the Holy Spirit, we do not think it intelligent. True, the Holy Ghost is God, and is to be viewed in His own distinct personality: but still the New Testament teaches us that He prays in us, to the Father, by the Son. A person praying to the Spirit can hardly see with clearness that the Spirit dwells in him.
Answer: The stone is Christ. Those who stumbled at Him then, even when He came in grace, would fall and miss the way of life; but a yet more sudden and fearful fate awaits those whom He will crush when He comes in judgment.
