THE MOST IMPORTANT CHAPTER IN THE BIBLE

I’ve heard people ask “what is the most important chapter in the Bible?” My answer to that question is without a doubt Psalm 22. The reason is it brings the Old Testament and New Testament together. It proves Jesus was the Christ, and everything that is written about those with faith along with it.

Jesus on the cross said “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” That is supposed to make you ask “why wasn’t that a sin?” Don’t let traditional teachers tell you Jesus didn’t have the ability to sin, because that’s nowhere near true. Remember Jesus in Matt.4 went to the desert specifically to be tempted by Satan. If He couldn’t sin, what would be the temptation? Satan also knew very well who Jesus was. He did offer Jesus all of the kingdoms of the world if He’d bow to him. Jesus didn’t sin, therefore He didn’t fail. Don’t shortchange what our Messiah went through in keeping His life pristinely free from sin by thinking He wasn’t able to sin. So why wasn’t that a sin on the cross? Maybe He wasn’t speaking to God at all.

It is accepted by many that what Jesus said on the cross was His moment of doubt and pain. To accuse God of forsaking Him would be a sin by anyone. I don’t know where some people get these ideas from, but to not look for simple questions which should shoot their logic down is simply lazy. You’re telling me that this Man who healed hundreds, divided a few fishes and loaves amongst hundreds had doubt? This Man knew exactly who He was. He even told the disciples He would be scourged and crucified before it happened. They expect you to just go along with that doctrine. He puts the ear of a centurion’s back on and told the disciple who smote it off that He could call on legions of angels to rescue Him if He wanted, but how would the word be fulfilled? They seriously expect you to believe that after He is beaten, after He is scourged, after He is crucified that it is THEN He has His moment of doubt and pain? Come on!

Psalm 22 begins by saying “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” When were the psalms written? They were written around 1000BC mostly by King David. As you read on through Psalm 22, you’ll get to verse 16. It says “For dogs have compassed Me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed Me; they pierced My hands and My feet.” How did Jesus die? He was crucified. He had His hands and feet pierced. This was written a thousand years before it happened. It also explains in that psalm that He would have His garments lotted upon, just like what is written in the gospels. As with many prophecies, this was written in the past tense simply because the prophets saw the future. It was the past to them. This holds true throughout Revelation.

Jesus was speaking to us on the cross, not to God. He was saying that Psalm 22 is being fulfilled, proving He indeed was the Messiah. All by the simple words He said on the cross. The genius of Psalm 22 is that it was destined to be repeated on the cross by Jesus, and that would hopefully then make you ask why that wasn’t a sin. This is the answer.

This is one of those things it only takes willing eyes and ears to acknowledge to be true. One must be a good student in order to find it on your own, due to the spirit of slumber given to all outside the election of grace. This psalm is the greatest example of the spirit of slumber I can point to. Most people cannot put Psalm 22 with what Jesus said on the cross on their own, and many when seeing the two won’t accept that they are connected due to their allegiance to personal, traditional, and denominational doctrine keeping them blind to the simple truth. Most people when this is pointed out to them should be able to see there’s no way Psalm 22 isn’t about the Christ in His last moments. God put the spirit of slumber upon nearly all, but men put on their own additional slumber with their personal blindness. Because of these things, Psalm 22 isn’t common knowledge Christian teaching as being a prophecy about Christ’s last moments. One additional point to prove about the spirit of slumber is what the next psalm is. The next psalm is the most popular psalm of them all – Psalm 23 “The Lord is my shepherd”. Psalm 23 being right there should be a beacon for anyone reading any psalm anywhere near it, thus connecting it to Jesus saying on the cross “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” It’s been there the whole time. I now introduce you to the spirit of slumber with Psalm 22 being its evidence. With the acceptance of the true doctrine of what Jesus said on the cross with Psalm 22, there’s no explaining it away by any of the most blind atheists. They can’t explain away Psalm 22 with any integrity because Psalm 22 was there long before Jesus lived. Even if Jesus didn’t point out Psalm 22 on the cross, it does predict He would have His hands and feet pierced. It brings the Old and New Testaments together. It proves Jesus was the Messiah. It proves the Bible is genuinely God’s word. Psalm 22 proves everything. That is why Psalm 22 is the most important chapter in the entire Bible.

    I agree Jesus was telling the world the truth. I thank you so much for showing me too.

  2. Jesse Norman II says:

    You’re welcome. God bless.

  3. leslie says:

    Just a thought..the cup that Jesus asks to be taken from Him..I have felt it to be the cup of wrath poured onto humanity..what are your thoughts? I love your blog btw..leslie

    • Jesse Norman II says:

      My thought is that when He said that, He had the thought of the last supper still in His mind. I don’t believe there was any greater meaning to it, but who knows? It’s good you use your imagination well to examine possibilities. From there calmly reflect and focus. See where your thoughts lead you. Always remember that just because you have the ability to think of something that it doesn’t equate it with a fact. Let that be the stumblingblock that blinds the intellectual atheists who love to humor themselves, thinking they are too smart for facts. Thanks for the compliment.

  4. Tino Huggins says:

    I don’t believe for a moment that Jesus could have ever sinned. Impossible! Jesus is God The Son, and therefore, could have never sinned. Bad doctrine to even hint that Jesus could have sinned! As God the Son, Jesus is God. We are told in The Holy Bible that it is impossible for God to Sin. God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone with evil (James 1:13). since God is eternal by nature (Psalm 90:2), He cannot stop being God. Jesus Christ, The One and Only God-Man cannot cease being God. God is Holy ,and therefore, it is not possible that He could ever sin. God took on the nature of man–not vice versa. You can tempt a pure bar of Gold all day every day and all that you will ever end up getting is a bar of pure Gold.

    • Jesse Norman says:

      Obviously He could have sinned, He just didn’t. It doesn’t matter what you believe. Either believe God’s Word or don’t. It is written that Jesus went into the desert to be tempted. If He had no ability to sin, there would be no possibility for temptation. Satan also wouldn’t have wasted his breath. Jesus was the son of God. He was also in human flesh. The soul is willing but the flesh is weak.

  5. Tino Huggins says:

    Hello Mr. Jesse Norman, I’m curious Sir as to why you have not yet commented on my last post sent over two weeks ago in response to your incorrect and harsh response to my post which you put up on April 23, 20012 at 8:46 in which you crafted and put up or posted your comment at the exact same time. I’m very interested in whether or not you will be as willing to post my response to YOUR comments that Jesus, God The Son, could have sinned?

    Tino Huggins—>

    • Jesse Norman says:

      I never got it, but how was what I said harsh or incorrect? I said either believe God’s word or don’t. If you think Jesus didn’t have the ability to sin, then you ignore the Word. If He had no ability to sin, then there would be no temptation to sin. In the gospels, it is written He went to the desert specifically to be tempted. This word “tempted” is clearly used. You can say “incorrect” all you want, but this is the only plausible explanation. You can’t be tempted by something you aren’t able to do. To be honest, I’m not even open to discuss anything to the contrary since this is so conclusive. There is nothing you can come up with biblically to challenge this. What you wrote before ignores Him being in the flesh. To say that His great sacrifice of not sinning when it’s clearly written He had temptation to do so is an insult to the burden He carried all of His life.

  6. Tino Huggins says:

    Mr. Jesse Norman, you are wrong Sir. I say that you are ignoring The whole of God’s Word to even make such a claim. I can pick a Scripture verse here and there and build any sort of doctrinal stance I want, but not according to the whole of Scripture. What I or anyone believes must square with the entirety of God’s Word as I’m sure you would agree. I will once again give you my original response to your earlier response to me as to why I believe you are misunderstanding God’s Word on this subject.

    NO, Mr. Jesse Norman, Jesus Christ could not have sinned in the past nor can He sin in the future since The Scripture says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (Heb. 13:8) If He could have ever sinned in the past, then He could sin somewhere in the future since His nature has always been the same even since taking on flesh as the later verse clearly implies. As I wrote in my last message, man did not put on God. Rather, God put on man. That means something Mr. Norman. The Word says that God cannot sin, and that in Christ dwelt the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form (John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9).

    You say, “If he had no ability to sin, there would be no possibility for temptation.” Not true! In your finite mind and by the way you understand and have experienced temptation, you know temptation as meeting with a desire or struggle in your very being. You are not God Sir. It seems you are saying it makes no since to tempt God, or that you cannot tempt God Sir. Well, you are wrong as the Scriptures say, “They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and “TEMPTED” God in the desert. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.” (Psalm 106:13-15) Clearly they tempted God as the Word has said even though The Word also says , “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.” (James 1:13)

    According to the Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon, tempted in Matt. 4 means “to try whether a thing can be done, 2) to try, make trial of, test: for the purpose of ascertaining his quantity, or what he thinks, or how he will behave himself; 2c) to try or test one’s faith, virtue, character, by enticement to sin.” If the finite tempts the infinite, you will always get a perfect answer no matter what the temptation Sir. In order for Jesus Christ to sin, there would have to be an inward response to an outward suggestion. According to Scripture, it is even sin to consider sin. But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (Matt. 5:28)

    I hope you would agree Mr. Jesse Norman that according to The Word that God cannot sin Sir (James 1:13). Do you at least agree with that? If yes is your answer Sir, then please answer the following verses as to whether Jesus could have ever sinned or not when tempted by Satan—the tempter? The Word says, “Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner,” (John 5:19). Also, Jesus said, “I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me” (John 5:30). I hope you would agree at least according to the following verses Mr. Jesse Norman that in order for Jesus to have had the ability to sin would have meant that God The Father could have sinned since Jesus claimed He did nothing of Himself and did not seek His own will? According to these verses, is it possible that Jesus could have sinned when tempted by Satan—the tempter Mr. Jesse Norman? In closing, I would like to make one more comment with regard to your claim, “If he had no ability to sin, there would be no possibility for temptation.” In Matthew 4:3, we are told that Satan is also called the tempter. I bring this up because it is Satan that tempted God The Son. Satan, I hope you would agree is finite. Some say that it makes no sense for Jesus to be tempted if He could not have sinned. The finite often do things that make no sense. The Scriptures are full of incidents that don’t seem to make sense sometimes, but they are recorded for our benefit Sir. Satan set out to tempt Jesus and he did not succeed nor could he have ever succeeded because our faith is in the perfect God-Man Sir. That’s why our faith will always stand true—ALWAYS and FOREVER!

    • Jesse Norman says:

      When God was tempted by people, He could have done whatever He wanted. He had the ability to respond either way. I know of the Strong’s as I’ve studied it for 15 years and suggest for people to use it throughout my site. God cannot sin. God in the human flesh could have. Satan knew very well who Jesus was and what He was or wasn’t able to do. Satan wouldn’t have wasted his breath if Jesus couldn’t sin. You can have your opinions, but you won’t budge me on this one. God bless.

  7. Tino Huggins says:

    God bless you too Norman!

  8. Tino Huggins says:

    After receiving your comments on the 10th of May, I was very disappointed with your entire response Mr. Norman. As usual, it was more about what you felt than it was about what God’s Word has to say on the issue. Feelings are not a very good way to defend the faith Sir. God’s Word says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” And also, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” (2Tim. 2:15;1Pet.3:15) I closed by I asked God’s blessing on you. But after rethinking things through for a few days, I saw myself as very irresponsible in not standing firm on the sinless nature of Jesus Christ while allowing your weak and meaningless response to hold weight in not defending the faith with a firm response. So…
    Yes, it is true that God can do whatever He wants when tempted by finite people Mr. Norman. However, the same is true when He is tempted by the finite, evil one, Satan. More importantly than even these comments, is the fact that whatever The Triune God, or Godhead (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9) wants is always to do what is perfectly correct, perfectly right, sinless, and Holy because The Godhead is Holy (Lev. 11:45-46; Jos. 24:19; 1 Sam.2:2; Mk. 1:24; Lk. 1:35; Rev. 4:8).
    The Godhead by the way is a reference to The Triune God of the Christian faith and thereby a reference to the second person of The Godhead. God The Son who is spoken of as The Holy One from His birth (Mk. 1:24; Lk. 1:35) as I’m sure you know Mr. Norman! When God is spoken of as being Holy, this is to say that God is infinitely perfect in His nature or essence and in all His ways. Therefore, the nature of The Godhead is perfect and Holy and does only that which is Holy and perfect in all that He does. His wants are according to His perfect will, and His Holy triune nature. When man is commanded by God to be Holy even as He is Holy, it is a totally different thing which is made clear in (1Pet. 1:13-16). It is a command for us to be distinct or separate from that which is unholy or of the world. Man is not in any way Holy in the same since and same way that God is Holy since we are clearly commanded to confess our sins (1 Jhn. 1:9; Heb.12:5-11), and yet we are told that Jesus Christ is The Holy One (“The” being used as the definite article) from His very birth in The Holy Word (Mk. 1:24; Lk. 1:35; 4:34; Jhn. 6:69; Acts 2:27; 3:14; 13:35; etc.). Holy—Without Sin Sir—The entire Person of Jesus Christ—All of Him—Holy—Wow! The person of Jesus Christ, therefore, is God The Son and incapable of sin since His nature as The One and Only God-man cannot be separated from His person or nature as God. He is “God The Son”.
    When you say that God had the ability to respond either way, I hope you are not insinuating that God could have responded in sin. The Scriptures are clear that God cannot sin nor deny Himself (James 1:13; Psalm 90:2). The only way that God will ever respond to anything is by responding with the most perfect and Holy answer, action and end result that there is.
    You say that God in human flesh could have sinned. Where does it say that in God’s Holy Word Mr. Jesse Norman? It doesn’t. Lip-Service means nothing when speaking of God’s Truth Mr. Norman! That is just a belief “you” have because you understand temptation to mean you have to have the possibility of sinning in order for the word temptation to be used. I have proved according to God’s Word in my last response and according to Strong’s Concordance that, that is not true. You say you have used and studied Strongs for years. What good does it do to study anything if you are going to ignore it when you don’t agree? What good is studying God’s Word if you can pick and choose or don’t agree with The Truth of His Word?
    You put more stock in Satan when you make him the issue as to whether or not Jesus Christ (God The Son) could have sinned. You wrote, “Satan knew very well who Jesus was and what he was or wasn’t able to do. Satan wouldn’t have wasted his breath if Jesus couldn’t sin.” Not totally true! You reference Satan like he is very smart and something to really look up to since he knew very well who Jesus is. If he knows so much, why did he ever betray God, knowing God is all powerful? If he knows so much, why does he continue to do those things that clearly go against God instead of bowing down to him Mr. Jesse Norman? Obviously, he is not too smart!
    He like you apparently didn’t know that Jesus Christ—God The Son—can’t sin since he did waste his time tempting Jesus Christ in the desert. If God knows the beginning from the end, did God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit know that Jesus Christ would not sin when tempted by Satan? I hope your answer is yes Sir. If it is, then The Godhead knew Jesus Christ couldn’t have sinned by Satan’s temptation because He didn’t, and God knew He wouldn’t before the foundation of the world. There is no way around that Mr. Jesse Norman. So it’s not my opinion that Jesus Christ could never have sinned, and this because The Holy Bible (God’s Word) has said that He didn’t and therefore can’t. You shouldn’t put so much confidence in “your understanding” of the word temptation when it clearly goes against the whole of God’s Word—even Strong’s Concordance in which you studied for 15 years Mr. Norman.
    I find it a bit disturbing when a man of God uses the phrase, “you won’t budge me on this one,” as you did in the end of your last response to me Sir. That is a statement of obvious pride to write such a thing. Pride is the very thing that caused the fall of man and the whole sin problem Jesse! So in essence, you will stand where you stand despite the facts of overwhelming Scripture verses and entirety of God’s Word that “Clearly” speak of “Jesus Christ” being born as “The Holy One”, “For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”, You cannot prove even once according to The Holy Word that Jesus Christ’s human will “ever” operated independently of His divine nature Sir. Yet, there are a plethora of Scripture verses that clearly speak of Jesus as being without sin—even the thought of it—which is sin. Therefore, he never even struggled, or considered sin one time in His entire life while on this planet as the God-man. Not once! So, how can you even claim with any real comfort that He could have ever sinned, and further, why would you ever want to if there is “NO” real evidence that He did? You and many others, no doubt, claim comfortably that Jesus could have sinned even though The Holy Bible does not mention that He did or could have even one time. Wow! It’s all about your feelings Sir!
    The very fact that God knows the future in and of itself is proof that He knew Jesus would never sin when tempted by Satan. That being true, Jesus Christ could have never sinned. Why would God ever send a possible failure to pay the redemption of man if there was ANY possibility of Him not being our redeemer? Totally ridiculous to even consider such a thing from a Perfect and Holy God! Does God make mistakes Mr. Jesse Norman? If not, then He knew before the foundation of the world that Jesus Christ could have never sinned. Therefore, it is not possible that Jesus Christ could have ever sinned whether you ever want to admit that fact or not Sir. Feelings and pride—WOW!
    It is a true shame in my view that any man taking on a teaching role would go on leading those who look up to him as a source of knowledge concerning God’s Word, knowing at the same time that there is such a great mountain of scripture that points to Jesus Christ as being incapable of sin. So, how can anyone wishing to use God’s Word as the only real reference and source of His revelation and Truth to mankind ever come to the belief or conclusion that Christ could have ever sinned? There is not even the slightest hint in God’s Word that He could have or ever did sin without twisting or using a few very weak verses to do so such as in this case? In doing so, one would have to go to great lengths and “want” to hold on to the view that Jesus Christ could have sinned. I really have to wonder why a claiming “Born Again” Christian would ever go to such lengths to want such a thing to even be true. If Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever as The Word says, how could one be secure knowing that if it was possible that He could have sinned in the past that it also possible that He can sin somewhere in the future? In that case, Jesus Christ can’t be our redeemer. His perfect sacrifice would not be perfect if He could have ever not been perfect in the past or at any point in the future. To believe Jesus Christ could have ever sinned is to also claim and believe that God could have failed at sending Jesus Christ to The Cross as our redeemer. Just Not possible Mr. Norman!

  9. Kimberly says:

    I have to say I agree with your thoughts on this Mr. Norman. I think what people seem to miss is the FACT that God came here not in spiritual form but as a man in the flesh. Before Satan could even attempt to test the Lord (which is what he did in fact do!) Christ had to put the flesh in the weakest state that it could possible get into and as such the flesh would have been on the threshold of death. It was only at that point that the Christ was led of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted. Satan is the tempter and he it is by temptation that he causes the downfall of man. So in like regard Satan had to test the Lord and in order for salvation to become possible the Lord had to withstand temptation and then once satisfied He could then pay the price for sin. Jesus could not have paid the price without defeating the devil when He was tempted in the wilderness. However remote the possibility that the Lord could have been tempted doesn’t negate the FACT that He was indeed at a point where the door was indeed open. Christ slammed that door shut and in the process also set the example for us to follow in how to deal with the devil!

    The truth offends those who do not have ears to hear and eyes to see. AND as you are well aware of the spirit of slumber mentioned in Romans, it is not given that all should understand.

    Be blessed and continue on speaking out the truth regardless of who it may offend. 🙂

    • Jesse Norman says:

      Very well said. It was after Jesus had fasted that He went into the desert to be tempted of Satan. Satan failed. Get used to that, Satan! I am frustrated by the slumber of men, not the slumber given by God onto men.

    • Jesse Norman says:

      I just wanted to point out the most conclusive verses showing Jesus could have sinned, but did not, and there is no way to argue against them directly.

      Hebrews 4:14-15 “Seeing that we have a great High Priest, that has passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in ALL points tempted like as we are, yet without sin”

      I arrest my case.

  10. i know that the world of God is the important and every thing about God has to Do with every thing in our day to day life

  11. Tino Huggins says:

    The Word says in Mark 1:1, “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;”
    God’s Word says in John 1:1-2; 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
    The Word says in John 17:5, “5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”
    The Word says in Acts 20:28, “28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.”
    God’s Word says in Colossians 2:9, “9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
    God the Father says in Hebrews 1:8-9, “ 8But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. ”
    Finally, The Word says in James 1:13, “13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:”
    Going to the Word of God, if you believe The Holy Bible is The Word of God, is the only place you have to go to, to find out that Jesus Christ could have never sinned. Quit seeking man’s feelings about the issue. Look to God’s Word to find out the answer to whether or not Jesus could have ever sinned. Nowhere in God’s Word will you ever read that Jesus Christ could have sinned. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (James 13:8). He is the one and only God-man as you will learn by reading The Holy Bible. Because Jesus Christ is God The Son, He cannot sin. Jesus Christ is Holy and for Him to sin would be to go against Himself and His own nature. He could not and cannot have ever sinned as The Holy Bible says!
    This issue of Jesus being God and man may be a little easier understood by reading about the theological study of the “hypostatic union.” One source on the subject can be found at http://www.compellingtruth.org/hypostatic-union.html

  12. Tino Huggins says:

    Even though you have still not answered my question Mr. Jesse Norman, here is my answer to your question, “Why did Satan offer Jesus all kingdoms of the world if he would follow him?”
    To that Question Mr. Jesse Norman, I cannot know the mind of Satan without going to God’s Word in The Holy Bible. Since I don’t believe we are told directly why Satan has chosen to challenge God “The” Son by tempting or testing him in the wilderness where the Spirit led Him, we can know, by The Word, that Satan originally chose to betray God long ago because of his great pride. In that pride, he believed he would be like The Most High God (Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:12-19). Obviously, as a result of what God’s Word tells us, being the most perfect wise “creation” as we are told, Satan is still no match for the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God of all the universe. Obviously, you know God is in charge, and I believe the answer to your question is that Satan is finite and full of sin. He still believes in his warped and sinful state that he can overcome God or else he would have bent down on his knees eons ago.

    When tempted by Satan, Jesus always referred him to The Word (Matt. 4:4-10; Luke 4:4-12). According to The Word of God, Jesus Christ has conquered Satan at the cross, and God has made it clear in His Word that Satan is finished (Ezek. 28:18-19). It’s been said that one may attack a battleship with a canoe. The outcome of the attack will be certain defeat for the canoe, but the attack is nonetheless real. In the same way, Satan’s attack on Jesus Christ, The One and Only Perfect, Sinless God-Man was useless and destined to fail, but nonetheless real! Furthermore, what could Satan ever give to Jesus Christ, God “The” Son that He does not already own? Read The Word below Mr. Norman?

    The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters (Psalm 24:1-2).

    I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it ( Psalm 50:9-1).

    All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him (Matthew 11:27).

    31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand (John 3:31-35).

    Notice Mr. Jesse Norman that you didn’t answer my question, “Where in The Holy Bible does it ever say that Jesus could sin?” All that I have written that clearly supports from The very Word of God that Jesus Christ is God, and therefore it is not possible He can or will ever sin, you have never yet dealt given a real answer of any kind. Instead of showing me where The Word says that Jesus Christ can sin, you instead ask me more questions about why would Satan do this or that if it wasn’t possible for Jesus to sin. The Word makes it very clear that God “The” Son cannot sin, yet you insist that He can.

    That is very strange to me. I have to wonder why it is that any claiming “Born Again” Christian would ever fight so hard to go against The Word of God to prove that Jesus Christ could have ever sinned. When I hear of people arguing for Jesus being able to sin, it only makes since if they are doing so to try to bring Jesus Christ down to their level of being a sinner. Not wise in my view! Jesus is The One and Only God man, therefore, He could have never sinned for all the reasons given above in all my responses.

    Mr. Norman, I do have respect for you Sir. I just wish you could have a greater respect for The Word of God by not promoting teachings that do not exist in His Word. All of your arguments on the subject of Jesus being capable of sin clearly go against the whole of The Holy Scriptures. You should not let one verse lead you down this path to wickedness in downing our Lord. When interpreting The Word, it should be done exegesis verses eisegesis. I don’t believe it is wise that one should use the unclear passages of God’s Word to interpret those passages which are clear. We should rather use the clear passages to interpret the unclear passages. In God’s Word as I’m sure you know Mr. Norman, this method is spoken of as, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2Tim. 2:15)

      As I have said at my site, I don’t go tit-for-tat in debates because that can be endless. Instead I ask questions that people can’t explain away with their doctrine, just like I did here. So Satan sees this man walking alone in the desert and knows who He is. I doubt Satan approaches everyday people and offers all of the kingdoms of the Earth if they follow him. So Satan knew who Jesus was, but he doesn’t know what He is able or unable to do? The reason you failed to answer an easy question is because it tears down your belief that Jesus didn’t have the ability to sin. If Jesus took Satan’s offer that would unquestionably be a sin. Paul also said (and I pointed this out) that Jesus was tempted just as we are but did not sin, thus proving my point 100%. I will discuss this no further.

    The problem you continue to live by Mr. Jesse Norman is that you put all the power in Satan and not Jesus Christ. Sin that Satan does is the absence of Good that only God can do! Therefore, Jesus Christ could have never sinned since He is God The Son. For some reason you just can’t seem to grasp that FACT, and thereby attempt over and over again to divest Jesus Christ of His Holiness in your own heart Mr. Norman. You will never be able to divest Jesus Christ of His deity in reality. Only in your heart and mind which you obviously want and need does your fairytale work! I’ve answered everyone of your questions. You’ve never answered none of mine according to “The Word of God” because you can’t. Your FEELINGS and RESPONSES are most always in conflict with “The Word of God”, at least with regard to this subject! That’s the shameful issue at hand–your pride! It seems that having someone who agrees with your faulty view pat you on the back is what you live for and need. Once again, you make the comment “If Jesus took Satan’s offer that would unquestionably be a sin.” That again is your problem Mr. Norman. Your “IF” could never have happened, it never did happen and never will happen–Certainly nowhere in “The Word of God!” Your continual problem over and over again Mr. Norman is that your put the mind of Satan and his actions above and beyond “The One and Only True God and Savior of all the Universe.” You think and live in the realm of “IF”, even though “Your ifs” don’t exist and never have existed. You have no supporting evidence that you can bring forward anywhere in The whole of Scripture that even hints of Jesus Christ sinning one time nor proving in anyway that He could have or ever did. Please stand by your word Mr. Jesse Norman and discuss no more about this subject since you’ve come up empty handed every time, unless of course you can do so according to the evidence of “The Word of God!”

    Both of you have part of the truth. The whole truth will set you free. They are all free and we must break down the walls that separate us. Don’t let the obstacle separate you both. When you attack each other you are falling into his snare. Instead focus on what you can learn from each other. This is the key. Humbleness is love. You must work through love in all things to have the complete understanding. The new age is upon us all. We have overcome the world already. This is the fun of discovery that is part of the glory. Both of you are making the same mistake. Thinking that one point of view is better than the others. Perception vs. Reality. If you truly understand the Infinite then you both will get past the pride by looking from the viewpoint of the infinite. The outside in. Focus on similarities, not the differences in logic. When you are close to the Truth the Evil one throws you into a state of confusion. Remove the bondage of self and unite.

    As sure as the Lord teaching me, my faith was the beginning. His first lesson was commanded as this. Omit I, me and myself from all things. All things shall be made new. Therefore I stand before everyone today and claim that I am no one. I am nothing. I am nobody. I am not me. I am not myself. I am not I. I am a vessel and I am dead. I am dead and more alive than ever before. I am alive in this world and not of this world. I am no more of this world than anyone else who hears these words and receives them. For if you receive these words then you have already received the One who gives me these words. These words are the truth and given by the Spirit from He that died for us. I am no one so that He may be everyone. I am nothing so that He may be everything. I am no body so that we may be THE BODY and He may be everybody. I am not He, but He is inside we. All glory goes to the father through Jesus Christ. We go to Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. All knowledge of His Will comes from Jesus Christ taught through the Spirit of truth by wisdom and understanding given to anyone who asks in the name of Jesus Christ. AMEN

    The Spirit is of truth and no one can lie to the Spirit because he hears the heart. The heart speaks through the body. The heart speaks through the mind. The heart speaks through the soul. All things are spoke through the heart. God is love. Therefore love all things and your heart will speak to your spirit. This is the key. Not love that is of this world, but the love that was, is and will always be Jesus Christ. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. All glory goes to the Father for ever and ever. AMEN

    I, me and myself are we. We are the wood that does not burn in the fire. Instead a fire burns in us to unite. We are united and united we shall stand. We stand in virtue ready to run the race. Not the rat race that is of this world, but the race of perseverance that is of God. A race that is of love. So let the race begin at the time that love is needed the most. We run the race. We are the people of God. We love because He first loved us. This is a call. Not a call for the race to begin, but a call for action to prepare for it to begin when He says it is time. AMEN

    Let Him know if there is no holier than thou attitude or I am special crap. In fact the word I must be removed from all written and oral communication. The call twice was made to find the empathy that was assumed maybe when it should not have. God’s Will is asked into this vessel daily for there is always work to be done. I am simply trying to find last night so more can be done. The Kingdom Comes. We shall pave the highway to heaven. Like Moses, servant to the Lord we see you Jesus for who you are. All things shall be made new. We shall. AMEN
