Prophets too were anointed and Jesus Christ is the Great Prophet spoken of by Moses.
So CHRIST means the messiah or anointed one.
It does not specify rulership.January 31, 2018 at 3:24 pm #821058
If you want to live in denial, that is your choice
muslims call Jesus the messiah, but deny his Messiahship

What is your problem?
The messiah was born in Bethlehem.
He was anointed at about age 30 at the Jordan River.January 31, 2018 at 3:41 pm #821060
Tradition tells you that the Jordan was not his anointing.
As a faithful Jew he submitted to the baptism of John.(Lk 7.29-30)
Then he was filled with the Spirit.(lk4.1)January 31, 2018 at 5:04 pm #821061
To fit with the teaching that Jesus was a preexistent Spiritual being
has to deny that Jesus was conceived in Mary, born under the Law
deny that he was a ordinary man like you and me
and deny his anointing at the Jordan.

All this confusion because folks do not realise The Spirit spoke through the man Jesus Christ.
Like the pharisees they attribute the words just to a man.February 1, 2018 at 2:44 pm #821077
Which dictionary gave you the definition of
as ANOINTED RULER?February 6, 2018 at 10:47 am #821144
I merely pointed out that biblical leaders were all anointed.
So rather than a Priest anointing Jesus, God anointed him.
He was anointed as LEADER at Jordan,
but Jesus was born as the Christ,
he was a priest from birth.
Remember he went into the temple to Teach at the tender age of 12

Thank you for your opinion.February 7, 2018 at 8:54 am #821155
Why do you try to fly these silly kites?
All in defence of your dogmas?
The High Priest is taken from among men, not embryos.February 7, 2018 at 11:07 am #821156
The bible clearly tells us Jesus was born Christ.
Why do you dispute the very words in the bible?

Edj….Jesus was not born a messiah, he became one when he recieved the spirit of God, no messiah could be a preexisting being. Ask any Jew and they will tell you a messiah has to be a human being who was anointed with the spirit of God, just as Moses was. John saw the spirit decend on him like a dove after he was baptized. NOW IF HE WAS ALREADY THE CHRISTO’S AS YOU ASSUME, THEN WHY DID HE HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN TO RECIEVE IT. NO SCRIPTURE SHOWS ANY MIRACLES OR TESTING OR KINGDOM OF GOD (GOSPEL) TEACHING TILL AFTER HIS BAPTIZM. THAT IS WHEN HE WAS SENT OUT INTO THE WORLD, NOT BEFORE.
Peace and love to you and yours. …..geneFebruary 7, 2018 at 4:00 pm #821158
When folks refuse to accept the prophetic nature of the written Word what can we do to help them?February 7, 2018 at 11:10 pm #821160
When folks refuse to accept the prophetic nature of the written Word what can we do to help them?
Show them fulfilled prophecies: like the 70 weeks of Daniel, Or the
1,260 day/years that Israel fled from the abomination of desolation.
