Christ’s States of Humiliation and Exaltation!

I heard a message at my school’s chapel this week that covered the great Philippians 2 creed, the one that says, “Christ, who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself NOTHING, taking on the nature of a servant, being made in human likeness, in which he was obedient to the Father, unto death, DEATH ON A CROSS, and on account of his obedience, the Father had him raised and exalted him to the highest place, that at the name of Jesus EVERY knee shall bow and EVERY tongue confess that JESUS IS LORD!”  My paraphrase off the top of my head.  An awesome passage.  It details what is doctrinally called Christ’s states of humiliation and exaltation.  His state of humiliation commenced from the moment he assumed a human nature (his conception) until his death, at which point he entered into his state of exaltation.  Want more info…. watch this video!  Peace in Christ, Andy.

    you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of these
