Gods Oath

About 1,000 years before Jesus, God swore an oath to King David that from his loins God would have a son who would set on his throne forever.

KJV Acts 2:29-32
 29.  Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
 30.  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
 31.  He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
 32.  This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

About 2,000 years before Jesus, God swore an oath to Abraham that in his seed all the nations of the Earth would be blessed.  That through Abraham, according to the flesh, God would have a son, the messiah, Jesus.

KJV Genesis 22:15-18
15.  And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
 16.  And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
 17.  That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
 18.  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

When God swears an oath what do you think the chances are that it will not be fulfilled?  What do you think the chances were that Jesus would have sinned?
Would it even be a possibility that Jesus could have sinned?  If you think Jesus could have sinned, How and why would you think that?  The chance of Jesus sinning was zero, it was impossible because God swore an oath and if there was some chance Jesus could have sinned Gods oath would not be a sure word of God.  When Jesus came into the world the possibility of him sinning was zero. 

All the prophets that spoke about Jesus never once made any statement that would even hint that Jesus could have sinned or that he was capable of sin. 

The temptation of Jesus by Satan is grossly misunderstood by people who claim Jesus was capable of sinning.

If I would tempt you to molest a little child would you be enticed by it?  Would you consider it in your mind and think about it?  I hope not, most people would not think along this line of perversion.  This thought would be highly offensive and disgusting. This is how Jesus felt about all sin.  Some people think that Jesus had to struggle constantly to avoid sinning but scripture never once says anything along this line.  The struggle Jesus had was with those who were sinners.

KJV Hebrews 12:2-4
2.  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
 3.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
 4.  Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Verse 4 above is not speaking of Jesus striving to not sin but that he endured the contradiction of sinners against himself even to him being crucified by these sinners.  Jesus had to put up with the people of his day because they were all sinners but he was incapable of sin.

KJV Matthew 17:17
 17.  Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
Jesus was a great light in the world who was incapable of sin surrounded by perverse sinners.  It was similar to Lot in Sodom.

KJV 2 Peter 2:6-8
 6.  And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
 7.  And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
 8.  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

If Lot was so vexed in his soul by the evil of Sodom what then about the messiah of humanity?

God swore two oaths to two different people that Jesus would be a complete success and when God swears an oath there is absolutely no chance of failure.

KJV Isaiah 42:4
 4.  He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
KJV Isaiah 42:6
 6.  I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

If the oath of God Almighty means anything to you at all then you must see that Jesus could not have sinned and was incapable of sin.
