I see what you are trying to say, however, I agree only in part. Of coarse he is the embodiment of truth, love, and justice, however, he is the ONLY true and complete embodiment of these things. I think that is where we differ.
I will try once again and ask, What was accomplished on the cross?
What was accompished on the cross. So very much. Why don't you get a good Bible Concordance out and look up every verse which mentions the cross and see what is taught about it?
I suspect you would like something of a short cut. First let say that whatever was accomplished on the cross is available only in the Holy Spirit. The work of the cross of Christ is available and effective only to those who contact the Holy Spirit. In the Spirit the work of Christ on the cross can become powerfully effective.
On the cross redemption was accomplished.
On the cross the old creation was terminated.
On the cross one new man was created brining the Jew and the Gentile to be reconciled in one body.
On the cross something called the old man , which causes us a lot of heartache and trouble, was nullified and terminated.
In essence on the cross all the old things were put away, finished, terminated. The cross of Christ makes suicide obsolete. What could not be fixed He killed off and resurrected the new.
On the cross Satan, fallen angels, and demons were dealt with and conquered.
All these accomplishments of Christ's death are the ingredients of the Holy Spirit. The become ours and can be applied to us subjectively as we walk in the Spirit of Christ.
"the last Adam became a life giving Spirit" (1 Cor. 15:45)
What Christ accomplished on the cross are all the ingredients of the Holy Spirit and become our experience as we are indwelt and saturated with the Holy Spirit - living in the Spirit and walking in the Spirit.
