πŸ‘‘ One Mediator Between God And Men

β€œFor he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment. Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both” (Job 9:32,33).

What is a β€œdaysman?” Who is it?

The expression β€œβ€¦any daysman betwixt us” forces β€œdaysman” to mean β€œsomeone between two parties.” β€œThat might lay his hand upon us both” again reinforces the idea that β€œdaysman” is β€œsomeone mediating between two individuals.” At the time of Job, God the Son was not known by the name β€œJesus Christ.” Moreover, the Calvary’s cross was over 1,500 years away. Therefore, no one living in the days of Job knew anything about Christ’s intercession. Sinful Job said he had no β€œdaysman” (mediator) between him and God.

Now, with a completed Bible in hand, we see the complete picture of God’s plan. Job did not know of the day when God really would become a man. He did not know that God-Man would literally function as his daysman and our daysman. But now, we can turn to 1 Timothy 2 to read:

β€œFor there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5-6).

According to verse 1 Timothy 2:7, that β€œdue time” was Paul’s ministry. Notice how the crosswork of Christ is mentioned hereβ€”β€œ[He] gave himself a ransom for all.” The Lord Jesus Christ functions as our mediator with respect to His sacrifice of Himself on Calvary.

And since Jesus Christ is God, He can take God by the hand. He is also Man, so He can take man by the hand. He thus joins man and God together giving every single person on earth today the same opportunity to access Father God through Jesus Christ.

Bible Verse for 1/19/20

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13
