The Son of Man Glorified
Book #1 of the Son of Man Series
About the Book
So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately.
Jesus Christ, the second Adam, the Son of Man, glorified God by His obedience to the cross. This work of redemption is the basis by which all the counsels of God are accomplished. All that God does for man, all that He works out on mankind’s behalf, has its foundation upon the death of the Son of Man. God will eventually gather all things—in heaven and on earth—into the raised and glorified Christ.
God will be glorified in all that He does, and He has exalted the resurrected Son of Man to His right hand in glory. This is where it begins. When this Man had finished His work, He forever sat down in regards to a completed redemption (Heb. 10:12). From this point, all God’s counsels begin to unfold. If the believer will read this book, and ask the Spirit of God to teach you, you will never be the same. All of Scripture will open up to you. The believer has been given the Spirit of God that you may know all these things and you have the mind of Christ (I Cor. 2:12,16). “Now the Son of Man is glorified …”
About the Author
My name is Dr. Jeff Reintgen, DDS. I am a general dentist in Cary, NC. Previously I was pastor of a local church in Latrobe, Pa. for ten years. During that time I taught the Scriptures basically three times a week. Now living in NC. I've been teaching a small Sunday school class for over three years. But frankly, I do not feel that this qualifies me to teach anything, especially the word of God. What qualifies anyone to write or teach would have to be a ministry gift given by Christ to the church (Eph. 4:11). But beyond this, the substance of what becomes doctrine and teaching must be received by the teacher himself -- the word of God taught to him by the Spirit of God. It must contain God's thoughts and be sound instruction, or else it simply adds to the works of man and what he is building on the earth. The Christian world is filled with the works of man; we have enough of this.
Christian teaching should always come from the Spirit of truth (John 15:26). It is not necessarily theological seminaries or bible training centers that give qualifications. For some time now I have prayed for myself and other believers the prayers found in Eph. 1:15-23 and Eph. 3:14-21. And I find that God answers, and is willing to make known what He has revealed. This is a most blessed experience, because it is based on the Christian's relationship with God, as son to the Father. Now we have received the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God (I Cor. 2:12). All true believers have been sealed by the Spirit of God, and have this same Spirit given to us.
There are many things I have done that could be mentioned, but it is, like Paul, only confidences in the flesh (Phil. 3:3-7), and a good bit of earthly glory. I have to count these things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Jesus Christ. This book is my effort to teach you what God has taught me, concerning His purposes, will, and plans. I believe you will find it will give you the means by which you may understand, again by the Spirit, the whole of Scripture. May God truly bless and enlighten you, as you read.
