Apologetics: Did Jesus always know everything? Pt 2

Why Give Up Omniscience

Jesus is theanthropus: one-hundred percent God, one-hundred percent man. We know he claimed to be the same eternal God that spoke to Moses out of the burning bush (I AM) and that same God was also known as omniscient. Nevertheless, why did he voluntarily downsize? Why did he leave the unspeakable glories of heaven, light and omniscience for the land of shadows?

He gave up his omniscience simply because he loves you and me. He did the will of his Father in learning obedience through the things he suffered while on earth. Remember, no person, Satan, or Angel could tempt God or cause him to suffer in his Kingdom of Heaven.

So that was God’s challenge: to get himself into the Earth and save mankind by giving up all his power and divine attributes for a brief time, learning obedience through the things he suffered. God knew this would show supreme evidence of his love for us. The Bible says, “No greater love has any man than this: that he lay down his life for a friend.”

 So again, we know he did not always know everything, because he gave up many of his divine attributes for me and you. This blog was not written to show that Jesus was some how less than God or a weak version of god, but quite the contrary, it shows the greatness of our LORD & Savior in what he was willing to do to redeem us. Apologetics and hemenuetics help us accomplish this fact.  Therefore, it is obvious that when you sit on a tack you get the point.

How do you feel about downsizing now?  Be as transparent as possible, for it could help another person in the community open up to God.

    I don’t think our finite minds can get a semblance of understanding on why
    Christ would leave his throne in heaven to come down to suffer and die for a rebellious, unbelieving creation. Who could know such love? When I think about all Christ has done for me, I am just humbled to my knees. We have what is good only because he gave! As the world grows dark, we need to make a decision to give all that we have for the kingdom that is to come. Christ is all that matters. What can you hold onto that will not perish in the fire?

      great thought, Marianne and i believe it will help others. it doesnt make much since that the greatest person in the universe would make himself a nobody, and give up omniscience and power to walk around in a skin suit for us to have life and have it more abundantly, but he did it b/c of his great love for us. like Marianne says, were not taking any of this “stuff” on this earth with us, so why arent more Christians downsizing for the Kingdom’s sake or at least not worrying about amassing so much stuff? something to think about, as Marianne states. greatword for the community.
