Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Scripture explanation (monotheistic)!

(Part 3) Jesus on the cross!
Matthew 27:46 Jesus said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and in Luke 23:46 “Father into your hands I commit my spirit.”

Q:= How is that possible for the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Lord God the Almighty to make such a statement?
How can that statement be explained and understood with a sound mind?

A:= It is NOT that God sent someone else another person, His Son to die on the cross for our sins.
Rather it is that the Lord God the Almighty who is Spirit (John 4:24) became a man, or clothed Himself in flesh and took upon Himself the punishment for our transgressions and sins in His body. (Isaiah 53:4-6) And the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities.

It is impossible for God who is Spirit to die, because a spirit cannot die and God is the Holy Spirit.
The only way for God to die is, if He became a man, or clothed Himself in flesh (Jesus Christ our Lord and God).
Bear in mind that death is NOT annihilation, death is separation, being separated, the body from the spirit.

At the cross, Jesus Christ the son of man, the son of David, the son of Mary, the son of the Holy Spirit, the son of God gave His life, (the separation of His flesh from His Spirit) as a ransom for many who have inherited eternal life.
Plainly; Jesus from His flesh as the perfect man cried out to the Spirit who is in Himself, “Father, why have you forsaken me, and into your hand I commit my Spirit”.
That does not mean that Jesus was separated from another person, or that He committed His Spirit into the hands of another person.

Again it is absurd to say that God is many persons and that one person of God would talk to another person of God and so to have a dialogue.
To say so, would be a deception and foolish speculations!

Any dialogue within God is from the position of man to God, from the flesh to the Spirit, from a Son to a Father. All in one person Jesus Christ our Lord and God, to Him be all the glory for ever and ever, amen!
