"For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren," Hebrews 2:11 NKJV.
You now belong to a new family, a new ration of genes, and a new class of being. Jesus is not ashamed to call you brother or sister. You are hewn from the same stock now. You are born of God. Now is the era when many sons have been brought to glory.
After the advent of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is no longer the ONLY Begotten of the Father, He is now the FIRST Begotten because God has since given birth to many more sons through faith.
What a privilege it is to be called Jesus' brother! Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:29 that "For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren."
Being a sibling to Jesus means you share in the inheritance of the Father. The first thing a son inherits from his father is the father's quality or nature. A cat passes down the "catty" quality to it's kitten. A dog gives birth to a dog. A human being does the same. Even God gives birth to god.
The Bible says " I said, “You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes.” Psalms 82:6-7. If He called them gods to whom the Word came and the scripture can not be broken, how much more the people born again and Spirit filled.
A Christian is no longer in the class of mere man-kind. A believer is now a partaker of the God-kind. And remember, gods don't beg they rule, gods gives health they don't get sick, gods live forever they don't die. But because they know not neither do they want to understand and prefer darkness, they shall die like mere mortals and fall like one of the princes.
I am no longer mere man-kind, I am a partaker of the divine nature.
