Are You Rich or Poor in Spirit?
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: (Philippians 2:7 KJV)
Jesus is fully God but this scripture verse illuminates the truth that Jesus came to earth and was born in humble means supernaturally as a man in the flesh. He was spiritually emptied of self, taking on the form of a humble servant of God having the supernatural power of God at work inside Him orchestrating His simple life on this earth.
Jesus Christ was Spiritually empty to permit the filing of, or being anointed by the Holy Spirit before Jesus Christ could begin His earthly ministry. (John 1:33) Though fully God, He was empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit as He existed in a physical tent of flesh upon this earth.
