📕✝️📯Bible Study: Addressing The Lord Jesus Christ. The unveiling of His many names!
How many ways can we address The Lord? So many. In this study we hope to open our Spirits to His many names and meaning through scripture.
Christ is our advocate; comfort and encouragement along will payment of sin as the Lamb of God.
And He shall be called “Advocate”
Scripture: 1 John 2:1 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”
1. summoned, called to one’s side, esp. called to one’s aid
2. one who pleads another’s cause before a judge, a pleader, counsel for defense, legal assistant, an advocate
3. one who pleads another’s cause with one, an intercessor; of Christ in his exaltation at God’s right hand, pleading with God the Father for the pardon of our sins.
4. in the widest sense, a helper, succourer, aider, assistant; of the Holy Spirit destined to take the place of Christ with the apostles (after his ascension to the Father), to lead them to a deeper knowledge of the gospel truth, and give them divine strength needed to enable them to undergo trials and persecutions on behalf of the divine kingdom.
The word advocate in Greek is paraklētos;
pä-rä’-klā-tos mentioned 5 times only in the Bible. Bible references (John 14:16;26) (John 15:26; 16:7) Reminding me of the paraketos advantage referring to The Holy Spirit.
This opens our eyes to Christ as a Intercessor, consoler. He speaks on our behalf, and he consoles the many situations in the courtroom of God; His Throne.
The interesting part of this discovery is that advocate means the same of comforter. So the study continues with a powerful word. When Christ said to His disciples I leave for the comforter to come he was mentioning himself in a different way. As the advocate he will be a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.
This cause is The Divine reason of Christ; bringing the lost to God. The policy is the finished agreement of The New Covenant between God and Son over us!
Christ advocates us in our time of need. He fulfills his promise to God as never leaving us forsaken in our trouble, sin, oppression and temptation. (Psalms 89:26-36)
Diving deep into references:
John 14:16;26- The Father will send the Holy Spirit in Christ’s name, being that they are the same. The word “Another” is not perishing Christ but expanding Him from flesh to Spirit. Which will fulfill his promise to comfort, yet teach them through mistakes, hardships and temptations. Example scripture for proof: “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
John 15:26- The Savor sends the comfort (Proving Christ’s divinity as God and apart or “another” as the same one. Thy Lord God is one.) He claims it’s from The Father, both Christ and Holy Spirit are the same and are the same As God The Father. The Spirit of truth is presented to disciples from the very words of God, Living and breathing word of God. Testifying Of who Christ is.
John 16:7- Expelling the flesh of Christ and unveiling the Spirit to disciples. Without sacrificing Christ there can in no way be a new covenant complete. Christ’s words: “It is finished” meant simply that His takes on earth is done, now the comforters time begins allowing Christ to stand before the throne to advocate on our behalf.
As the intercessor he comforts us in all our tribulation and brings consolation to sin or accusation. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
By him we are side-by-side in a relationship outlined in a covenant. (Hebrews 7:25)
Through him because he always lives to intercede for us as the Eternal Shepherd for his people. (Romans 5:10) We have been reconciled by his life. He returned from earth through as sending becoming glorified as the role of king of kings our great defend her against the accuser Satan.
