Jesus Christ vs Christ Jesus

Jesus Christ vs Christ Jesus

What is the difference between Jesus Christ and Christ Jesus

If we are to take on Christ identity we are to make a small differentiation or we will cross boundary not meant to be crossed. We need to be careful as we can not separate the Lord Jesus Christ and carve Him up in segments. The closest we can come to that is saying He became flesh and dwelt amongst us John 1:14

Anything you can find of Christ is true of us, be sure to make a distinction between the man ‘Jesus’ and godhead part ‘Christ’, as Jesus is the man part and Christ is the godhead part, Jesus opens the seals, Jesus is the high priest, Jesus paid for the sins of mankind, Jesus is the lamb of God, Jesus is the king of kings, Jesus overcame.

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Eph 4:13)

The bible distinguishes between emphasising the God part (the son of God, spirit) as Christ Jesus and the man part as Jesus Christ (the son of man, soul). In regard to us in the spirit its always Christ, Christ, not Jesus but Christ the God part!

Emphasis is on man part Emphasis is on God part
Son of Man Son of God

The Soul of Jesus The Spirit of Jesus
Our outer man hidden here Our inner man born here
Talking to our outer man Talking to our inner man
Talking to us being redeemed in Him Talking to us being born in Him
Talking to us in regards to our soul Talking to us in regards to our Spirit
Being redeemed Redeemed

If you look at the scripture again you will see we are not the body of Jesus but the body of Christ, Jesus doesn’t live in me, but Christ does, Jesus is my brother but Christ is my God,

So we do not take on the soul identity of the man Jesus but of Christ, we do not get holes in our hands and feet, we do not open the seals, we are kings but He is the king of kings. That all said the Lord Jesus Christ is not separated, He is one not two, He is the man God, the God man. God as a man, Almighty God put on flesh.

Jesus Christ is Lord, and we are to hide in Him, in His Christ life and take on His Christ identity,  we have the mind of Christ, hidden in Christ. See if you can spot the differences in these scriptures that mention both.

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus (2 Tim 1:1)

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: (Eph 1:1)

Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: (Phil 1:1)

To the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s: (1 Cor 1:2)

Regarding our positioning there are 130 references to being “In Christ” and zero “In Jesus” (some bible versions have one or two scriptures around the other way).

Are you starting to get it?

There is the odd scripture here or there that confuses….. Why does it say then Put on the Lord Jesus Christ? It is simple, in the spirit we are Christ so we don’t need to put Christ on our spirit as He is our spirit, but we must change our outer man which is our thinking and identity, our souls gets sanctified and redeemed by hiding in the Lord Jesus Christ and His body. We are born again in the spirit but saved or sanctified in our souls.

Remember we only get anything from God by being immersed [baptised] in the Lord Jesus Christ, like Jacob we put on Esau’s [Jesus] skin and get His inheritance, for only one person will be saved from the earth and we in are hidden in Him (Col 3:1-4)

Now with this new understanding go again and look at the scripture and be amazed…

So you are no longer slaves but God’s children. Since you are God’s children, God has also made you heirs (Gal 4:7) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together (Rom 8:17)

So your a joint heir with Christ, who is Christ? He is God Almighty

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Col 1:15-17)

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last. (Rev 1:8)

And the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades . (Rev 1:18)

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie. I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star (Rev 22:12-16)

And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. (rev 21:6-7)

What does it mean to be a joint heir with God Almighty the creator of the universe? It means you and I need to catch up and get our beliefs right, why are we such slow traffic, why are we stuck in the MUD?

  1. 21So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25Thanks be to God, who delivers me through JESUS CHRIST our Lord!
    So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful natured a slave to the law of sin.
    1Therefore, THERE IS NOW NO condemnation for those who are in CHRIST JESUS, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set youa free from the law of sin and death.

  2. pls help me I gave been told that I should not call Jesus christ but only christ because Jesus is the one die in the water the time he got baptism in River Jordan and the one came out from the water is christ is it true?

    • Brother Paul makes mention in Romans 8:11 that it was both Jesus and Christ who were raised from the dead, so who ever told you this was not knowledgeable of the scriptures concerning Jesus Christ. Jesus being baptized was to fulfill the righteousness of the law and it was at the cross that the price of sin (death) was fulfilled (paid) by Jesus Christ. Read this post again, ask God for revelation and you will be enlightened to the truth, it will set you free from that confusion. Bless you bro.

  3. Thank you for this revelation. It is one that all should get. I have known for a long time that there was a difference but this article puts it in prospective

  4. please I want to live a radical Christian life. is it possible and right? there is so much lukewarmness in my country that I want to be different.

  5. You said Jesus Christ =son of God – man, and Christ Jesus =son of man – God.
    How is the Christ , the son of man. In the o;d testament, even they said when the 3 Hebrew boys were in the fire, they said, it looks like the son of God. & at the foot of the mount in before Moses went up to mountains, the 23 Elders, Men & women at the foot saw him, on a flat flying Gem, Ezekiel say him, in a wheel in the middle of a wheel, David said, the LORD said to my Lord, The LORD is the heavenly Father, The Lord is his Son. Jesus is God, conceived by the Holy Ghost, & in the LIKENESS of flesh, because it was preordained by the LORD, not like the fallen angels, whom had not consent from the LORD to have wives & children. Jesus is the word made flesh, Christ is the wisdom & power of GOD. Now whats the difference of the two.

    • At first glance it can be confusing, however the emphasis is on the Man or God portion of the line. He is the Alpha & Omega, the Almighty who said behold I was dead now I am alive for ever more. Christ Is God who became the son of Man, Jesus is the man who was also the son of God.

  6. The difference lies in the man person, vs The Reality of Who He is In Eternity. The Christ, the very LIfe Giver of The Spirit of God has never not been forever. The man, Jesus, was born of and bore The Christ of God, in Spirit. Jesus ‘the man’ is not Eternal Truth, The Christ of God is TRUTH, He is The Light. “Some say John the Baptist,” they answered, “others say Elijah, and still others that a prophet of old has arisen.” 20“But who do you say I am?” He asked. Peter replied, “The Christ of God.”

  7. I think there is one big thing we should remember when we talk about man and God nature of Jesus Christ. And that is the fact that the two natures have become ONE being by the will of God himself. That means Jesus is Christ and Christ is Jesus. God has made the behavior of man his own behavior and man has made the behavior of divine his own. But without one exterminating the other. This is like what happens when we put a metal object to the fire. The metal becomes fire making fireness its own behavior and the fire catches the shape and size of the metal making metal ness its own being. The two matters do not lose their own nature but united in oneness. This is exactly what happened when Divine and Man nature united and became ONE being. This is best explained in the revelation ” I am alpha and Omega , the first and the last. ”I was dead and behold I am alive forevermore ” Rev 1:18 ” I am the Alpha and the Omega” Rev 1:8 Do you see ? I was dead said Jesus Christ or Christ Jesus ( Call him whichever way doesn’t matter ) . Divine never dies but since he has made man nature his own through Jesus he the united being said I was dead . ” And behold I have risen from dead to live forevermore.” It is only God that lives forever. Go to the gospel of John ” He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood dwells in me and I in him.” John 6:56 . In this chapter Jesus Christ talks more about his New Testament sacrifice – His flesh and blood that we have to eat and drink to be forgiven of our sins and live forever because this divine united body of Him otherwise which he wouldn’t have explained as bread of life.

  8. Thank you for creating this site, this morning in my daily time with the Lord, I finished my daily scriptures of who I am in Christ and I paused and asked the very question of this teaching.l which was VERY helpful!! I do have a question though, when you said ” son of God – man ” and ” son of man-God ” would you mind elaborating?? Your mission for this website spoke to me. Thank you again and may the Holy Spirit of continue to guide you, in Jesus holy name. Peace and continued blessings.
