Christ comes forth from the Father according to the flesh, Who is God over all, highly praised forever. Romans 9:5.
There is no holy man, be he called whatever he may, who is able to do Gabriel's work, bring to naught sin, death and the curse, and on the other hand is able to create righteousness, life and blessing from God. Since then the Scriptures so often ascribe such works to Christ, it then most certainly has to be concluded that He Himself is the correct, true God. For if I were to believe that only the human nature suffered for me, then Christ is a bad Savior for me; He Himself then would need a Savior. However, if I were to hang all treasure and weight ["put all my eggs into one basket"] upon the fact that Christ is both true God and true man, died for me, etc., beyond all else that outweighs/surpasses and beats all sin, death, hell and all misery and heartache.
If you find this a simple read, I rejoice; these were 4 difficult sentences to translate. I hope to get it also to my daughter. Yesterday I reminded her that though she may feel like she's going through a 'Job-like experience', she and I should rejoice because "I know that my Redeemer [Goel in the original Hebrew text] lives ...!"
I thank the many of you for your kind response about keeping Lori in your prayersl
