DID JESUS PREEXIST AS the SON OF God?

SPELLING EDITED


DID JESUS ALWAYS PRE-EXIST AS GOD’S SON?

 

First of all, what is meant by this question, “Did Jesus ALWAYS pre-exist AS God’s SON? Well, the term “pre-exists” means different things to different Christian church denominations. So then, the question is not actually did Jesus pre-exist? But rather the question is HOW did Jesus PRE-EXIST?

 

#1. Did Jesus pre-exist as the SON OF God who had a beginning in eternity past?

#2. Did Jesus pre-exist as God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity without ever having a beginning?

                #3. Did Jesus pre-exist as an Angel created by God?

                #4. Did Jesus pre-exist as the Word where the Word was a Divine Spirit being separate from God, who was WITH God at his side?

                #5. Did Jesus pre-exist as Yahweh HIMSELF and Yahweh manifested Himself as the Son at his virgin birth?

#6. Did Jesus pre-exist as Yahweh’s THOUGHTS and PLAN to bring His firstborn Son into existence at his virgin birth? 

 

In other words, did Jesus pre-exist WITHIN Yahweh’s thoughts to bring forth a Messiah where those thoughts were yet His unspoken word of PROPHECY In Yahweh’s mind before God spoke forth any word of prophecy out from His mouth? To say this another way, did Jesus pre-exist as an IMAGE that God desired to bring into existence that was WITHIN God. And then God SPOKE FORTH His word of PROPHECY out from His own mouth to bring into existence the IMAGE of HOW He desired His Son to be?

                Now, some church denominations dogmatically demand and teach that to believe in Jesus LITERALLY pre-existing without ever having a beginning is the very FOUNDATION of true Orthodox Christianity. And Orthodox Christianity says that if you do NOT believe that Jesus LITERAL pre-existed as God the Son, the second person of the Trinity, then you are NOT a TRUE Christian.

               But is this what the word of God truly teaches us that we MUST believe that Jesus pre-existed as God the Son, the second person of the Trinity, in order to be saved. Does the Bible itself teach us in simplicity that we MUST, without fail, believe that Jesus LITERALLY pre-existed as a SEPARATE divine eternal being who was with God at God’s side in eternity past in order to be saved? I myself find NO Scriptures teaching us that we must believe that Jesus literally pre-existed as a SEPARATE divine eternal being who was with God at God’s side in eternity past in order to be saved? 

               Now, it is true that this teaching of Jesus literally pre-existing is found in nearly ALL groups of believers who CLAIM that they ALONE are the ONE and ONLY TRUE church.

               To the Mormons, Jesus pre-existed as a created spirit being and that he was the brother of Satan. Now from my understanding, the Mormons do believe that Jesus died for their sins like every other Christian but YET in many other areas they do NOT believe the whole word of Almighty God. For example, the Mormons believe that Almighty God was at one time a MAN who then progressed to become a God. So then, the term to pre-exist in the mind or thinking of a Mormon does NOT mean to have ALWAYS existed for all eternity past without a beginning. Please read the studies MORMONISM VERSES BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY” and “IS MORMONISM CHRISTIAN?”

                And to the Jehovah's Witness, the term pre-exist means that Jesus was a created being just prior to the creation of everything else. In other words, the Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Almighty God Jehovah created Jesus, who then created everything else. Then this spirit being called Michael the archangel, also called the Word, according to the Jehovah’s Witnesses took on the form of a man. They do not believe that Jesus is Deity but rather that Jesus is only the SON OF God. And since they believe that Jesus pre-existed as a spirit being and that he was the FIRST creation of God, then the pre-existing Jesus, to them, does NOT mean that Jesus has ALWAYS pre-existed without a beginning. Now, while I personally know some Jehovah's Witnesses, and they have told me that they do indeed believe that Jesus died for their sins, then I myself am not going to judge whether or not that they are saved or not. But I will say that not all their doctrine is SOUND BIBLICAL teaching according to the WHOLE word of God. Nor do I myself believe that the Bible ITSELF teaches us that Jesus created all things.

                The Christadelphians believe that Jesus did NOT pre-exist as a spirit being or as an angel but rather Jesus PRE-EXISTED ONLY as the spoken word of Almighty God. They believe that Jesus was brought into existence in the fullness of time at his virgin birth. They believe that Jesus was created or born as a human being who was conceived by the spoken word of Almighty God. They believe that Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit at his baptism to receive divine power and then this divine power left when Jesus died on the cross. Christadelphians also believe that man does NOT possess a soul. And, therefore, to them, when a man dies, then the soul itself ALSO dies or ceases to exist. Please read the study “IS THE DOCTRINE OF SOUL SLEEP BIBLICAL?”, which explains the ERROR of Christadelphians on this particular subject of the SOUL of man. 

Jesus had his own SOUL that was not left in hell. And while the SOUL of Jesus was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights Jesus was CONSCIOUS because the Bible says that he PREACHED to the spirit or the SOULS or spirits in prison. Please read the study “WHAT AND WHERE IS PARADISE?” for a deeper understanding that the Old Testament saints are now in heaven awaiting their resurrection to receive their glorified immortal bodies of flesh and bone just like Jesus has now.

                The Catholic church, as well as many Protestant church denominations, believe that Jesus not only pre-existed but that Jesus ETERNALLY pre-existed as the SON OF God having absolutely NO BEGINNING or ending. And, therefore, to Trinitarian Christians, Jesus ALWAYS existed as God the SON, the SECOND person of the TRINITY who is always CO ETERNAL and CO EQUAL with Almighty God the FATHER. The terms co-eternal and co-equal mean that God the Son has always been and ever shall be God the Son who has always been and ever shall be equal in every way with God the Father, where neither is less than nor greater than the other.

              Now, both the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus teach that Jesus, as God the Son, the second person of the Trinity, has always existed. And, therefore, Jesus is without beginning or ending being CO-ETERNAL and CO-EQUAL with Almighty God the FATHER and God the Holy Spirit. In other words, the Roman Catholic Church and many Protestant churches as well teach the doctrine of the Trinity, and the Deity of Jesus, which again teaches that God SON has ALWAYS pre-existed from all eternity as the second person of the trinity and, therefore, Jesus was WITHOUT beginning the same as God the Father. 

               These two doctrines also teach that Jesus is God the Son INCARNATE, which means that Jesus was, is, and ever shall be FULLY Almighty God HIMSELF, and that while God the Son was on the earth he was FULLY Almighty God AND fully man at the same time meaning that Jesus has TWO natures, one DIVINE nature, and one human nature. Therefore, these two doctrines also teach that Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God is CO-EQUAL to Almighty God the Father, meaning that Jesus is EQUAL with Almighty God the Father in every way where neither one is less than nor greater than the other DURING the DAYS of his FLESH.


 

BUT WHICH TEACHING IS THE TRUTH? 


So then, the question becomes, “Which teaching is the truth?” OR perhaps none of the above teaches are the truth of the whole word of God and are there other teachings as to HOW Jesus may or may not have pre-existed? Again, the following are the different teachings that I have found in my research concerning the verses that seem to teach that Jesus pre-existed and HOW Jesus pre-existed.

#1. Jesus pre-existed as the ETERNAL SON, the second person of the Trinity, called God the SON.

                #2. Jesus pre-existed as a separate Spirit being called the Word, who eternally existed with God and was God. And therefore, the Word had NO beginning nor end. Then God made a human body for the Word to dwell among men and was given the name Jesus, the Son of God, and the Son of man being fully Almighty God and fully man at the same time.

                #3. Jesus pre-existed as the Word that was with the God and was a God. Or more precisely the WORD was WITHIN God as God's THOUGHTS and PLANS. And then this Word was SPOKEN forth by Almighty God as PROPHECY to one day be made flesh and dwell among men, given the name Jesus, and called the Son of God and the Son of man whom Almighty God the Father DWELT IN to empower his Son to do the works that he sent him to do.

                #4. Jesus pre-existed as a created ANGEL. Then this Angel of the Lord became flesh to become the Son of God, but was NOT Almighty God Himself. Some teach that Lucifer or Satan was the brother of this Archangel of the Lord that others believe was named Michael.

                # 5. Jesus always pre-existed as the eternal Father Himself, who then manifested Himself to become the Son of Almighty God the Father where Jesus the Son was FULLY Almighty God and fully man at the same time. This belief is called Modalism or Oneness Pentecostalism.

                #6. Now, there may be other teachings that fit in one of the categories above, but they may vary a little in some way. If you, the reader and seeker of the truth have heard of another different teaching that you personally believe is a more SOUND BIBLICAL teaching than any of the above teachings please let me know and I will include it in this study. Number 7 is what I myself have come to believe that the whole word of God teaches.

                #7. I myself believe that Jesus pre-existed as Yahweh Himself, as in, Yahweh’s OWN THOUGHTS within Himself. So more precisely, Jesus pre-existed as an IMAGE that Yahweh had WITHIN himself to one day have a Son. I believe that Yahweh Himself literally becomes what He speaks forth into existence by His own spoken word which came forth out from His own mouth.  I believe that the spoken word which came forth out from the mouth of God first became the Son of MAN, who was then given the name Jesus. I believe that God anointed the Son of MAN, Jesus at his baptism with the Holy Spirit, and power to accomplish the task God gave to Jesus to accomplish. Then AFTER Jesus became obedient unto death on the cross then Almighty God the Father highly exalted the Son of MAN to become the eternal divine Son of God to become a God or to become Deity to rule FOR Yahweh at his God and Father's right hand.

 

Rather than discussing all of the other above mentioned teachings of the pre-existing Jesus I want to focus this study on WHY I believe that the Bible ITSELF teaches us that Jesus came into existence at his virgin birth.

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, ALL of the above mentioned Christian Churches cannot be correct, because they all DISAGREE with each other in what they teach. So the purpose of this study is to find out what the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, teaches us. And in order to do this we must be thorough as we examine all the possibilities. Therefore, we will be looking at the other side of the coin so to speak. In other words, we will be looking at what all the other church denominations to NOT look at. But just briefly, let me explain why I will not FOCUS my attention on what OTHER church denominations believe and teach.

Please know and understand that the Mormons have their own special Bible as well as two other books that they hold equal to if not greater than the Bible itself. Also know and understand that the Jehovah's Witnesses also have their own Bible that their leaders have translated and as well have the Watch Tower publications that they hold to be sacred to them along with their own translation of the Bible So all of what Jehovah's Witnesses hold as being the ONLY truth is what they refer to as the inspired teaching of the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society. And even the Catholic Church holds tradition and church history on the same level as God's word. 

I say this because I myself will ONLY use the Holy Bible as the source to base the understanding of how Jesus may or may not have pre-existed. I may include early church writings as support if they agree with what the WHOLE word of God clearly and plainly teaches because there were false teachers in the early days of the church as well just like there are today.

Now in order for the mainstream churches of Christianity such as the Roman Catholic church and many Protestant church denominations to continue to support such a belief in a “TRINITY God”, then those church denominations, who teach that Almighty God is a Trinity God, must prove without a doubt that Jesus, the Messiah, the SON OF Almighty God the Father, who in their mind is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity, has always existed for all eternity and never had a BEGINNING. Otherwise, if Jesus can NOT be proven without a doubt that he has always existed as the SON OF Almighty God WITHOUT a BEGINNING, then Jesus can NOT possibly be proven to be THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God himself, as in, being a SEPARATE person of the ONE Godhead.

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, IF SO BE, that the SON OF God did indeed have a BEGINNING, any kind of beginning, then the SON OF Almighty God could not possibly be THE ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF, but rather a CREATION OF Almighty God. You see, the TRUTH of the matter is that in order for Jesus to be Almighty God himself during the days of his FLESH, then Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God, would need to be an ETERNAL being as well, who is WITHOUT a BEGINNING nor ENDING just like God the Father and God the Holy Spirit according to the doctrine of the TRINITY.

In other words, in order for these doctrines of the Roman Catholic church that have passed along to some Protestant churches to be found true, then those who teach these doctrines of the trinity and the deity of Jesus must provide absolute sound Biblical proof from that Holy Bible ALONE, as in, the WHOLE word of God, that does NOT contradict any other part of God's word. What I mean by this is where are the Scriptures that teach us that Jesus had TWO NATURES, one divine, and one human at the same time and that it was only his human nature that died on the cross. I myself have found no such verses to support the teaching that Jesus had two natures DURING the days of his FLESH.

But as you will see in section two, there are many verses of Scripture that PROPHESY many details in the life of Jesus from his virgin birth to him ruling for Yahweh in the world to come.


SECTION TWO

 

ORDER OF EVENTS IN WHICH THEY ARE PROPHESIED!

 

As you read the following prophecy in Isaiah 9:6,7, please notice the ORDER in which the events are PROPHESIED.

 

Please read Isaiah 9:6,7.

 

“For (Order of event #1 that has already been FULFILLED) unto us, a CHILD is BORN, (THEN comes Order of event #2 that has also already been FULFILLED) unto us a son is given: (Speaking of the HUMAN Son of MAN, Jesus as the Son given as the ONE sacrifice for the sins of the world. Yahweh provided His own Lamb that was slain in the mind of God from the foundation of the world. God chose His Lamb to be made inferior to the angels so He made the human race a little lower than the angelic beings) and (And THEN Order of event #3 is YET FUTURE and it is YET TO BE FULFILLED) the government shall be upon his shoulder: (Which is the WRATH of God executed by Jesus. That is WHEN the kingdoms of this present world will become the kingdom of God's dear Son to begin the 1000 year reign of Jesus) and ( And THEN will come Order of event #4 that is YET FUTURE and it is YET TO BE FULFILLED WHEN the government will be set upon the shoulder of Jesus IN the world to come, at which TIME) his NAME shall be CALLED Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, (Or more precisely, according to Hebrew 5:9, the Father of everlasting life or the AUTHOR of eternal life. For you see, it was BECAUSE, OF the Son of man, Jesus obeying his God and Father's Will, that Jesus made it possible for whosoever believes in him shall be saved. Jesus was MADE perfect and he BECAME the Father of eternal life AFTER the cross. For you see, the Son of MAN, Jesus, was GIVEN the authority and the power AFTER the cross to JUDGE and also to give eternal life to whomsoever he chooses. This is why Psalms 2 prophesies to kiss the feet of God’s Son whom He ordained to be his King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus is also called) The Prince of Peace. (And, according to Revelation 1:5, Jesus is our Prince right now standing at the right hand of God. But at his second coming, Jesus will SIT on the right hand of Yahweh to rule and reign FOR Yahweh as the Lord of the Sabbath. And at that time, the kingdoms of this present world will become the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. And)

7.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

 

Also, please notice WHO is doing the PERFORMING of His own spoken word of PROPHECY that came forth OUT FROM His mouth. It is Almighty God Yahweh the creator who is performing His own word. So to me, Jesus is the FULFILLMENT of the spoken word of PROPHECY. Jesus began as a THOUGHT in God’s mind as God's secret plan of salvation. Not just the salvation of mankind that He had not yet created, but also the RESTORATION of the entire universe back to being at PEACE having no WAR. God created the human race to put an END to evil. Please read the studies under the heading >>>WHY ARE WE HERE-IS GOD AT WAR?<<< 

But for now, I want you to consider ALL the verses in the Old Testament that refer to Jesus as being PROPHECIES rather than “history” of Jesus literally pre-existing with God at his side in eternity past. In other words, consider Genesis 2:26 as PROPHECY where Almighty God is talking to His yet FUTURE Messiah when God said Let “us” make man in “OUR” image and after “OUR’ likeness. Let us go ahead and read Genesis 1:26,27 and notice how the pronoun use changes to SINGULAR in verse 27.

 

Genesis. 1:26,27.

 

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 

27.  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” 

 

So then, Yahweh ALONE and BY HIMSELF created all the ORIGINAL creation, and then together Yahweh and the Son of MAN Jesus made it possible for God's NEW CREATION of righteous human beings to be created IN Jesus Christ. But FIRST, Yahweh needed to make the Son of MAN, Jesus in Yahweh's PERFECT IMAGE before God could CONFORM us into the IMAGE of His dear Son. The word “perfect” has a few different meanings so what I mean by Yahweh making the Son of MAN, Jesus “perfect” is that Yahweh the Father GAVE Jesus the divine nature of IMMORTALITY after the cross. And when I say, by what I mean, I am speaking of what the Bible itself means by being “MADE PERFECT”. Please read Hebrews 11:39,40 where the Old Testament saints and the dead in Jesus Christ will not be “MADE PERFECT” until we are ALL “MADE PERFECT” at the same time at the coming of Jesus. In other words, the souls of the saints under the altar up in heaven have not yet received their new glorified immortal bodies like Jesus was given.

 

Hebrews 11:39,40.

 

“And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received NOT the promise: (As in, they have not YET received the promise of eternal life to be made partakers of the divine nature of immortality to be made COMPLETE or made PERFECT)

40.  God having provided some better thing for us, that they WITHOUT us should NOT be MADE PERFECT.” 

 

Now let us read where God MADE the Son of MAN, Jesus PERFECT so that Jesus could BECOME the author of eternal life. We know that Jesus has already been given his glorified immortal body of flesh and bones because after the Son of MAN, Jesus, descended back down from heaven, he showed himself alive for forty days before the now glorified Son of man ascended back up to heaven where he was before.

 

Please read Hebrews 5:7-12.

 

“Who in the DAYS of his FLESH, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; (Speaking of God not leaving his soul in hell by raising the Son of MAN, Jesus from the dead)

8.  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; (Jesus suffered being TEMPTED and James 1:13 teaches us that God can NOT be tempted)

9.  And being MADE PERFECT, he BECAME the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 

10  Called of God a high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

11  Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing. 

12.  For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have the need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God, and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”

 

ALL the members of Jesus were “prophesied” BEFORE ANY of his members yet existed. While God was still yet forming the image of His yet future Son in His mind, Yahweh imagined His Son to be MADE PERFECT.

The SIMPLE truth is that Jesus said that he came OUT FROM God and NOT that God the Son came down from heaven from God. Jesus said that the Scriptures SPOKE of him. In other words, when Jesus read the Scriptures the Holy Spirit was right there teaching Jesus, saying to the Son of MAN, Jesus, that passage of Scripture is TESTIFYING of YOU, my Son. These are the things I wrote concerning YOU.

The Scriptures do not prophesy about King David, but rather they prophesy about God’s Messiah whom we know to be Jesus.

 

Please read Psalm 139:13-17.

 

“For You have possessed my reins: You have covered me in my mother's womb. 

14.  I will praise You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Your works; and that my soul knows right well. 

15.  My substance was not hidden from You, when I was made in SECRET, and curiously wrought in the LOWEST parts of the earth

16.  Your eyes did see my substance, YET being UNPERFECT; and in Your book all my members were WRITTEN, (Or  in Your Book all my members were PROPHESIED)  which in continuance were fashioned, WHEN AS YET was NONE OF THEM

17.  How precious also are Your THOUGHTS unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!” 

 

Let us read the last three verses again so you can see that the TRUE Jesus did NOT LITERALLY pre-exist in eternity past as God the Son who was literally with Yahweh as a literally separate person at God’s side.

 

Psalm 139:15-18.

 

“My substance (Or my BODY, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE) was not hidden from You, (Or my body, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE, was not SECRET from YOU)  WHEN (Or my body, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE,  was not a secret from you as to when, where, and how)  I was made  (Or my body, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE, was not a secret for YOU as to when, where, and how I would be brought to pass or PROCURED)  in SECRET, (Speaking of Yahweh’s HIDDEN prophecy kept secret from God’s enemy, Satan)  and curiously wrought (Or my body, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE, was not a secret for YOU as to when, where, and how I would be brought to pass or PROCURED by you who fabricated me in an unusual way) IN the LOWEST parts of the earth. (Or my body, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE, was not a secret for YOU as to when, where, and how I would be brought to pass or PROCURED by You who fabricated me in an unusual way by Your spoken word of PROPHECY being FULFILLED or performed by You in the WOMB of the earth. Now, I see two meanings to the phrase “IN the LOWEST PARTS of the earth. Before Jesus ascended out of the grave he DESCENDED FIRST into the heart of the earth or into the LOWEST parts of the earth. But God did not leave his SOUL in Hell as was prophesied. And after God resurrected the Son of MAN, Jesus, God highly exalted him and gave Jesus eternal life to become God’s, ETERNAL Son. That is one meaning. The other meaning is that Jesus had his beginning in the womb of a human woman without an earthly Father)

16.  Your eyes did see my substance, (Or Your eyes looking into the future did see my BODY, as in, my whole BEING of spirit, soul, and body as well as my END PURPOSE) YET being UNPERFECT; (Or yet being an embryo or an unformed mass)  and IN Your book all my members were written, (Or every detail about where I would be born to the END PURPOSE of why I was born are written in Your word of PROPHECY)  which in continuance were fashioned, (Or You formed and molded like a potter) WHEN AS YET was NONE OF THEM. (Or when YET NONE of my being existed in eternity past You kept forming Your thoughts within yourself as to how You desired my end to be like)

17.  How precious also are Your THOUGHTS unto me, O God! How great is the sum (Or how great is the END)  of them!”

 

 

Jesus said that the Scriptures TESTIFY of him.

 

Search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which TESTIFY of me.”

 

Now read Luke 24:44-49.

 

“And he (Jesus) said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me

45.  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures

46.  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 

47.  And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 

48.  And you are witnesses of these things

49.  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high.” 

 

Psalm 56:8.  

 

“You (Yahweh) tell my wanderings: put You my tears into Your bottle: are they not in Your book

  

Jesus knew from the Scriptures Yahweh prepared him a new glorified immortal body as a JOY set before him to ENDURE the cross.

 

 Hebrews 10:5.

 

“Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:”

 

To ME, it is quite clear that the BODY God prepared for his Son Jesus is his NEW divine immortal glorified spiritual body of flesh and bone. And that it was God PLAN all along to reward his only BEGOTTEN SON Jesus with the divine nature of IMMORTALITY. This was the JOY set before Jesus to endure the cross.

In ONE sense, God did prepare or create a human body by His spoken word of prophecy, but this is NOT the ONLY BODY that God PREPARED for His human Son, Jesus. Please keep in mind the CONTEXT of this verse in Hebrews 10:5 which is speaking of SACRIFICES. Remember the ORDER in which the PROPHECY is given. In the fullness of the time, a CHILD would be born of a virgin FIRST as the only or uniquely BEGOTTEN SON OF MAN having NO earthly father. Then the child would grow to manhood and even as a child he would be TAUGHT how to refuse the evil and choose the good. Then when the Son of Man turned 30 years old, God sent down his OWN eternal Holy Spirit to DWELL IN his SON Jesus to EMPOWER his SON to become obedient do all the will of HIS God and Father even to suffer and die a cruel and brutal death on the cross for the sins of the whole world.

So then, after God ANOINTED his Son Jesus with power from on high where Almighty God the Father, who is the eternal Spirit, began to DWELL IN Jesus, then God sent his SON Jesus OUT INTO the world to preach the gospel and do all the will of the Father ending with Jesus being crucified on the cross for the sins of the whole world. And then Almighty God raised his SON from the dead and GAVE to the Son of MAN a NEW GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY that he had PREPARED for his SON Jesus even before that foundation of the world in His mind and plan to one day have a Son to SHARE His glory and His kingdom. And that is when Yahweh MADE His FIRSTBORN Son PERFECT. It was AFTER the cross that Jesus OBTAINED a more excellent NAME than the Angels. 

God wanted a RIGHTEOUS Son who would NOT rebel against him. A Son he could TRUST to rule FOR him. And God was so pleased with his beloved Son to become obedient even unto death on the cross that he rewarded his Son with the divine nature of IMMORTALITY. To say this another way, the BODY that was PREPARED for Jesus was an IMMORTAL BODY as a REWARD for his SON Jesus doing ALL the will of his God and Father. This was the JOY set before Jesus to endure the cross.

 

Please read Hebrews 12:2.

 

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.”

 

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Greek word that is TRANSLATED as “PREPARED” is “KATARTIZO”, which means TO RESTORE, put in order, to mend, to make complete, to prepare, to ORDAIN, perfect and to make perfect. And the ONLY time this Greek word is TRANSLATED as prepared is in this one verse of Hebrews 10:5. So all you have to do is be HONEST with yourself to admit that the HUMAN body that some CLAIM to be the body that God prepared for his already LITERAL preexisting Son Jesus was NOT a PERFECT body. In other words, the full meaning of this Greek word does NOT fit with a PERISHABLE HUMAN BODY of mere FLESH as Jesus had during the days of his FLESH as the body God prepared for Jesus. But the meaning of this word does indeed fit the human body of Jesus being CHANGED and GLORIFIED to be made PERFECT and IMMORTAL. 

So again one more time, Hebrews 10:5 is speaking of the new GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY that God PREPARED or MADE PERFECT for his SON Jesus.

Also, please take note of the conjunction BUT, which also means YET, as in, yet a future preparing of a BETTER body. A body that is MADE PERFECT just like the Greek word “KATARTIZO” means. In other words, the CONTEXT of this verse teaches us that with the animals sacrifices God was NOT PLEASED. To say this another way, Jesus was simply saying, “BUT you O God will be or are SATISFIED with me as your sacrifice and, therefore, you have PREPARED ME a BODY, as in, an IMMORTAL glorified spiritual body of flesh and bones!”

Jesus knew that the Scriptures spoke of him. And the very CONTEXT of Hebrews 10:5 teaches us in verse 7 that Jesus came as prophesied in the Scriptures. Jesus is the FULFILMENT of Yahweh’s word of PROPHECY that CAME OUT FROM God.

 

Hebrews 10:7.

 

“Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of ME,) to do YOUR will, O God.”

 

Again, Jesus, the Son of MAN, knew that the Scriptures spoke of him. And thus, Jesus knew that it was needed for the Son of MAN to suffer and die for the sins of the people. In other words, an ANGEL dying for the sins of man would not be sufficient for God. Yahweh ned and INFERIOR species of being to die for the sins committed BY the inferior species of humans that God SPECIFICALLY made a little LOWER than the angels for a REASON. And that reason is that Lucifer and the fallen angels are on TRIAL awaiting to be judged by those of us who OVERCOME the world. Please read the study THE MAN JESUS CHRIST!

Also, Jesus knew that he would dwell in the house of the Lord forever AFTER going through the valley of the shadow of death. But yet he SUFFERED being TEMPTED because he knew the PROMISES of reward that awaited him if he endured the cross. Jesus knew of the yet COMING JOY being in the house of God forever with his God and Father so he ENDURED the cross of shame to be a PLEASING and ACCEPTABLE sacrifice for sins that would satisfy his God and Father.

 

Please read Isaiah 53:10-12 from the New Living Translation.

 

“But it was the LORD'S good PLAN to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. (Jesus knew that the Scriptures spoke of HIM. Jesus knew from the Scriptures that he would BECOME the father of everlasting life. Jesus knew that Almighty God the Father would COMMIT this authority to give eternal life to his faithful brethren to be joint-heirs with him. Praise the Lord!) He will enjoy a long life, (Speaking of ETERNAL LIFE. Jesus knew that the scripture promised him eternal life for obeying his God and Father to do all his will. In John 5:26,27 we learn that Jesus is GIVEN IMMORTALITY by his God and Father) and the LORD'S PLAN will prosper in his hands. (Jesus knew the PLAN of his God and Father from the scriptures that spoke of HIM. Jesus knew that this was God's PLAN from before the foundation of the world. To ME, this is HOW Jesus PRE-EXISTED. I myself believe that Jesus pre-existed only in the MIND and PLAN of Almighty God to ONE DAY bring FORTH a SON who would be his LAMB to redeem mankind back to himself. And as a REWARD God SET this great JOY of partaking of the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY before his Son Jesus for becoming obedient to endure a cruel death on the cross as the atonement for this sins of the whole world. The word of God teaches us that Jesus was TAUGHT morning by morning and that he INCREASED in wisdom, understanding, and favor with God as he grew in physical stature)

11. When he (Almighty God the Father) SEES all that is accomplished by his anguish, he (Almighty God the Father) will be SATISFIED. And because of what he has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins.

12. I will GIVE him the HONORS of one who is mighty and great BECAUSE he exposed himself to death. He was counted among those who were sinners. He bore the sins of many and interceded for sinners.”

 

Philippians 2:8-11 teaches us that Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED for the very reason OF being that good and faithful servant of God to become obedient unto death on the cross. It was only AFTER Jesus became obedient unto death on the cross that his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED his SON Jesus to become a God to rule and reign in his Father's kingdom and his Father's right hand on his Father's throne.

 

Philippians 2:8-11.

 

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9. Wherefore (Or for this very REASON of becoming obedient to endure the cross) God also has HIGHLY EXALTED him, and given him a NAME which is above every name:

10. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth,

11. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

 

The Son of man, Jesus, RECEIVED glory and honor BECAUSE he was SLAIN. When we read Revelation 5 we do NOT see anyone looking for an ANGEL who is found WOTHY. We do NOT see anyone looking for some god the Son to be found worthy. We do NOT see anyone looking of Almighty God Himself to be found worthy. But rather they were looking for a MAN who was found WORTHY to executed the judgment of God.


Please read Revelation 5:1-14.


“And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. (The one sitting of the throne is Almighty God. And Almighty God Yahweh has the book of judgments in His right hand but they are LOOKING for someone who is WORTHY to open the book. Now surely Almighty God is WORTHY so WHO are they looking for who is WORTHY to open the book?)

2.  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loosen the seals thereof? 

3  And no MAN in heaven, nor in the earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. (WHY would they even be looking for a MAN if so be the NO MAN could possibly be found worthy to open the book?)

4.  And I wept much because NO MAN was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 

5.  And one of the elders said unto me, Weep not: (Or why are you weeping John? Weep no more because we have found a MAN who is WORTHY) BEHOLD, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has PREVAILED to open the book and to loose the seven seals thereof. 

6.  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 

7.  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne(In other words, the now glorified Son of MAN, Jesus comes over TO Almighty God Yahweh sitting on the throne and he takes or RECEIVES the book out of His right hand)

8.  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. 

9.  And they sang a new song, saying, You are WORTHY to take the book and to open the seals thereof: FOR (Or You are WORTHY to RECEIVE the honor to open the book BECAUSE) you were SLAIN, (As an INNOCENT MAN) and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 

10.  And have made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 

11.  And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 

12.  Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain TO RECEIVE power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. (And when we take a closer look at the gospels we can clearly see that it was AFTER the cross that Jesus was GIVEN all power and authority. We can see that it was AFTER the cross that Thomas called Jesus Lord and God. But after Jesu RECEIVING all of this power, honor, and glory to be GIVEN the very NATURE of God he did not even thing to grasp at equality with God. But yet he continued to humble himself to be a servant)

13.  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I (The Apostle John) saying Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, AND unto the Lamb forever and ever. (The Greek words translated forever and ever literally mean an age unto an age or into the age of ages speaking of the world yet to come and not necessarily for all eternity future. For you see, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, Jesus will commit the ruling of the Kingdom back into the Father's hands after the 1000 year reign of Jesus ends) 

14.  And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped Him that lives forever and ever.”


So then, before God created the FIRST Adam, God had in His mind and plan of salvation to have the SECOND or the LAST Adam to be slain on the cross for the sins of the world. And we all agree that the Lamb SLAIN from the FOUNDATION of the world was NOT LITERALLY slain before Yahweh recreated or restored the earth to be inhabitable once again. This brings us to section three where we will cover some verses of Scripture that teach us that the beginning in Genesis 1:3-27 was NOT the beginning is eternity past. But rather, it was [A] beginning some 6,000 years ago when God created the first human being to be a little LOWER and inferior to the Angels. And that means that the creation account in Proverbs 8:22-31 is ALSO the recreation of the earth and NOT the original creation in eternity past. Please read the study “WHAT DOES PROVERBS 8:22-31 TRULY MEAN?” Even just casually reading Proverbs 8:22-31 you can clearly see that even IF Jesus was LITERALLY there, he did NOT lift one finger to create ANYTHING. And when you read this passage of Scripture closely you can see that it is a PROPHECY of God yet future Son and NOT a history of eternity past or even a history of 6,000 years ago. Also, this means that John 1:1 is NOT the original beginning in eternity past but rather John 1:1 is [A] beginning some 6,000 years ago when God recreated the earth that BECAME void and empty to be habitable once again.

 

SECTION THREE

 

“In [A] beginning was the word, and the word was TOWARD God and [A] God was the word”

 

When we read Genesis 1:1,2 from a LITERAL translation we can see that the creation account in Genesis 1:3-17 is NOT the original creation in eternity past.

 

Genesis 1:1,2 from the LITERAL translation.

 

“In beginning he created Elohim ALEPH-TAV the heavens and ALEPH TAV the earth.

2. And the earth she BECAME chaos and vacancy and darkness over faces of ABYSS. And Spirit of Elohim vibrating over faces of waters.” 

 

Now let us read the same literal translation again in more modern English. The double arrows (>>) is to show that the Aleph and the Tave Hebrew letters are NOT translated. Some Bible scholars believe that the Aleph-Tav are hidden prophecies pointing to Jesus, the Messiah. The Aleph is the first Hebrew letter and the Tav is the last Hebrew letter. and Jesus said that he is the first and the last and that he came forth out from God.

 

Genesis 1:1,2 from the LITERAL translation.

 

In “A” beginning God created >> the heavens and >> the earth

2. And the earth BECAME CHAOS and EMPTY, and DARKNESS (Or WICKEDNESS, death, and DESTRUCTION) came upon (Or death and destruction came AGAINST) the faces (Or the TURNING) of the ABYSS.”

 

Clearly, the creation account in Genesis is God RESTORING or RECREATING the surface of the earth to once again be INHABITED. But this time, God is making sure that there will be no more attacks on his THRONE. God has a PLAN that will END with RIGHTEOUS inhabitants of the NEW earth that will NOT rebel against God to seek to be equal with God as Lucifer did.  Let us now look at Genesis 1:13 which teaches us that God is REPLENISHING the earth and there is a hidden prophecy in that verse where God is replenishing the earth with a people who will be made in the IMAGE of God and his yet future Son, Jesus.

 

Genesis 1:26-28.

 

“And God said, Let us make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: (This is Yahweh speaking TO his yet future Son and Yahweh’s NEW creation created IN his Son Jesus the Christ. For you see. The very next verse clearly teaches us that God ALONE and by himself created man in HIS own image as can be seen by all the SINGULAR pronouns. For you see, God knew his ENEMY, Lucifer, now called Satan, would deceive Adam and Eve to sin. But God had already PROPHESIED the Jesus Messiah LIGHT to come into the world who would be slain as a ransom to redeem the human race to himself) and let them have DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. (God gave Adam and Eve complete DOMINION over the earth as the earth’s NEW stewards. But when Adam and Eve sinned that dominion was stolen by Satan to become the REBEL god of this present world. BUT this interference by Satan now gave God the right to HELP mankind overcome Satan and reclaim that DOMINION over all the earth. God set down some laws for Satan and the fallen angel to not interfere with Adam and Eve knowing that Satan would violate God’s command of not interfering. So the plural pronouns “us and our” also refer to the angels, as in, God told the angels what He himself will do. In other words, here is what WE will do to prove to you that everything I create is PERFECT. We will make an inferior species of beings lower than you angels. And if they live without sin then I am going to destroy you Satan and all the angels that joined with you to attack my throne. But at the SAME time, God HID a PROPHECY that his yet future Messiah would read and understand that God needed him to obey him to fulfill God’s plan of salvation to die as an INNOCENT man. And had Satan known God’s full plan of salvation he would have never crucified the Lord of glory)

27.  So God created (The ALEPH-TAV) man in HIS own image, in the image of God created HE him; male and female He created them. (In other words, the ALEPH-TAV MAN is a hidden prophecy of God creating his Messiah in the IMAGE of RIGHTEOUSNESS. And not just righteous but as a righteous human who would never even THINK to seize or grasp by force to be equal with God. But this also means that God created Adam and Eve in perfect righteousness as well knowing the POSSIBILITY that Satan would deceive them. Please keep in mind that God created man a little LOWER to the angels to prove to the fallen angels that even an inferior species of beings can live without sinning against their creator.)

28.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and REPLENISH (ALEPH-TAV) the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 

 

Again, another hidden ALEPH-TAV prophecy of God declaring the END from the beginning of the founding of the restored earth. The same Hebrew word here in verse 28 that is translated as REPLENISH the earth with righteousness inhabitants. For you see, Lucifer corrupted the inhabitants in the pre-Adamic civilization and they were destroyed by the Luciferian flood. This same Hebrew word that is translated as REPLENISH in verse 28 is also used in Genesis 9:1 for Noah and his family to REPLENISH ALEPH-TAV the earth that was destroyed during the flood of Noah.

 

Genesis 9:1.

 

“And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and REPLENISH (ALEPH-TAV) the earth.”

 

In other words, God is PROPHESYING that in the END, the NEW earth after the end of the world to come, will be inhabited by RIGHTEOUS humans who will be made in the PERFECT image of God to be made partakers of the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY. And Jesus has already fulfilled some of the prophecies of God to become the FIRSTFRUITS unto God in the harvest of righteous humans who will INHERIT the worlds to come. God is in the process of DETHRONING Lucifer to replace him with another God and King who will rule over the earth for 1000 years.

 

Please read Psalm 75:6,7.

 

“For PROMOTION comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 

7.  But God is the judge: he puts DOWN one, and SETS UP another.”

 

Did you know that, at first, God ONLY charged his ANGELS with folly? And God did this before He ever created the human race.

 

Please read Job 4:18.  

 

“Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:”

 

In other words, the fire that God prepared for eternal DESTRUCTION was ONLY prepared for the fallen ANGELS and Lucifer. God never intended HELL to be for humans.

 

Please read Matthew 25:41.  

 

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, PREPARED FOR for the devil and his angels:” 


 

Then we read in Isaiah 5:14-16 that Hell has ENLARGED HERSELF meaning that God never ORDAINED any human to go to hell. But rather, God SET a CHOICE before the human race to CHOOSE LIFE.

 

Please read Isaiah 5:14-16.  

 

“Therefore, HELL has ENLARGED HERSELF, and opened her mouth without MEASURE: (Or Hell, the holding place of the wicked dead had to make herself more ROOM by opening her mouth WITHOUT the ENACTMENT or without a statue or a DECREE from Yahweh) and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoices, shall descend into it. 

15.  And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: 

16.  But the LORD of hosts shall be EXALTED in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.” 

 

Here is how E-Sword defines the Hebrew word translated as “measure” in the King James Version.

 

H2706

חֹק

chôq

khoke

From H2710; an enactment; hence an appointment (of time, space, quantity, labor or usage): - appointed, bound, commandment, convenient, custom, decree (-d), due, law, measure, X necessary, ordinance (-nary), portion, set time, statute, task.

 

In other words, Almighty God did NOT DECREE anyone to Hell or to the lake of fire but rather God gave every human being a FREE WILL to make their OWN CHOICE of whether they will choose His so great a salvation or whether they will choose everlasting DESTRUCTION in the lake of fire. Some Christians sincerely believe that God predestined EVERYTHING including every evil thing that happens. And part of why they believe that God created evil is because of incorrect translations of the Bible in some of the verses of Scripture. For example, the King James Version translates Isaiah 45:7 as God “created” evil but when you look up the Hebrew word translated as created you will find that it ALSO means to “CUT DOWN” evil. So which makes more sense in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God? Did God create evil or does God cut down and destroy evil?

I mean, seeing that God does ALL things for His PLEASURE and God takes NO PLEASURE in the death of the wicked, then to me, it is impossible for God to have specifically created evil just so that he could destroy evil. You can read the whole study later on “DID GOD CREATE EVIL?” But for now, here is just an excerpt from that study as to how Isaiah 45:7 should read in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


So Isaiah 45:7 should actually read.


“I form the light, and CUT DOWN darkness: I make peace, and CUT DOWN evil: I the LORD do all these things.”


The phrase “I form the LIGHT” is a prophecy of Jesus and of us as Christians being God’s WORKMANSHIP created in Jesus Christ His Messiah unto good works. And then, to the saints who overcome the world, God will grant Jesus and to us the honor of CUTTING DOWN the evil wicked people who do not call upon the name of the Lord to be saved at the end of the ages speaking of at the end of the present world or age, and also speaking of at the end of the 1000 year reign of Jesus.

You see the phrase “I make peace” is referring to the 1000 year reign of Jesus where there will be NO WAR, crime, or violence. Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit during that yet future 1000 year reign of Jesus but after the 1000 years has ended then God will allow Satan to be let loose to deceive the nations one final time and there will be one more final war called God and Magog and there will be ANOTHER CUTTING DOWN of the evil wicked men but this time ALL evil will be destroyed in the lake of fire INCLUDING Satan and ALL his fallen angels.

Now, when we take a look at Genesis 1:1 in this LIGHT of the Hebrew word bara that is usually translated as create but also means to CUT DOWN evil then it might be that Genesis 1:1 should have been translated as CUT DOWN instead of created seeing that the earth BECAME void and empty in verse 2. My point is that we should read Genesis 1:1 BOTH ways, as in God created the heavens and the earth AND God CUTDOWN the heavens and the earth and the earth BECAME void and empty. Here is an excerpt from the study THE GAP THEORY AND THE PRE-ADAMIC RACE!


Genesis 1:1,2 as a paraphrased version could read as follows and NOT must read as follows.


“In a new beginning after God cutdown a rebellion in the heavens and the earth.

2. And the earth BECAME VAIN, an undistinguishable RUIN and wasteland void and EMPTY of its inhabitants, and DESTRUCTION was AGAINST the DARKNESS that TURNED against God in the ABYSS of heaven, And the Spirit of God HOVERED over the FLOOD waters


Again, please understand that I am only showing you a different SIDE of what the Hebrew “bara” TRULY means and COULD mean in Genesis 1:1 in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God cutting down Satan to REPLACE him with Jesus to be the God of the whole earth during the world to come called the Millennial reign of Jesus. You can read the above study where I have quoted all the definitions of the Hebrew word from a Bible concordance.

Here is another verse of Scripture that I personally believe that the King James Version has incorrectly translated. Let us read the KJV first and then I will quote the meanings of the Hebrew words which I will use in my own paraphrase translation of Job 26:13.


Job 26:13 


By His Spirit, He has garnished the heavens; His hand has formed the crooked serpent.


This translation makes it sound as if God created Satan to be crooked or evil but when we read the next chapter in the Book of Job we see God will PUNISH and SLAY the crooked serpent with His great and strong sword speaking of Jesus.


Please read Job 27:1.


In that day the LORD with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.”


And when we look up the Hebrew words in Job 26:13 we can see that the KJV incorrectly translated some of the words that paint a WRONG picture of God as being the creator of EVIL. Here is how E-Sword defines the Hebrew word translated as formed.


H2490

חָלַל

châlal

khaw-lal'

A primitive root (compare H2470); properly to bore, that is, (by implication) to wound, to dissolve; figuratively to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one’s word), to begin (as if by an opening-wedge); denominatively (from H2485) to play (the flute): - begin (X men began), defile, X break, defile, X eat (as common things), X first, X gather the grape thereof, X take inheritance, pipe, a player on instruments, pollute, (cast as) profane (self), prostitute, slay (slain), sorrow, stain, wound.


And here is how E-Sword defines the Hebrew word translated as crooked.


H1281

בָּרִחַ    בָּרִיחַ

bârı̂yach    bâriach

baw-ree'-akh, baw-ree'-akh

From H1272; a fugitive, that is, the serpent (as fleeing), and the constellation by that name: - crooked, noble, piercing.



And when we read Job 25:13 in its CONTEXT we can clearly see that it is speaking of God REPROOF as opposed to God creating Satan.


Please read Job 26:11-14.


The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at His REPROOF

12.  He divides the sea with his power, and by His understanding, He SMITES through the PROUD

13.  By His Spirit, He has garnished the heavens; His hand has formed the crooked (Or more precisely His hand WOUNDED the FLEEING) serpent. 

14.  Lo, these are PARTS of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? But the thunder of his power who can understand?


God did not go into great detail on how Lucifer fell and only a LITTLE PORTION of Lucifer BECOME Satan is told to us in Isaiah and in Ezekiel which I cover in the study “WHO IS LUCIFER-IS LUCIFER SATAN?”  But for now, I want you to see the “BIGGER” picture for WHY God made Jesus a little LOWER and inferior to the angels. I mean, WHY would God go backward in creation to create an inferior species of human beings lower than the angels if it was not for a specific purpose? And I believe that the purpose is to prove to all the good and faithful angels that God did NOT create Lucifer with a sinful rebellious nature. Some of my readers have asked me where is the verse that says Lucifer accused God of creation him flawed and thus it is not Lucifer's fault that he made war with God? Well, there is no one verse that states this as a fact but when we look at Satan as the ACCUSER of the brethren we can see that Lucifer in unrepentant, and he wants to take as many humans as he can to the lake of fire with him. Please read all the studies under the heading >>>WHY ARE WE HERE-IS GOD AT WAR?<<< But for now, let us get back to the main topic at hand which is to see Jesus as the FULFILLMENT of the word of PROPHECY that came out from God.

Trinitarian Christians argue that Jesus was BEGOTTEN WITHOUT being BEGOTTEN. And why they make this claim THEY will never tell you. But in truth, they NEED to make this claim that when the word begotten refers to Jesus then it does NOT MEAN BEGOTTEN. For you see, if Trinitarian Christians concede to truly be honest with themselves and with God then they must admit that the word BEGOTTEN always means BORN, GENERATED, come into existence. And if they admit the TRUTH then the whole doctrine of the Trinity falls apart and it is proven to be false teaching. The Greek word translated as the only begotten is a compound word that comes from the two Greek words “Monos which means ONLY and begotten which means BORN or generated. Here is how E-Sword defines the compound Greek word monogenēs”.


G3439

μονογενής

monogenēs

mon-og-en-ace

From G3441 and G1096; only born, that is, sole: - only (begotten, child).

Total KJV occurrences: 9


And here is how E-Sword defines “Monos”.


G3441

μόνος

monos

mon'-os

Probably from G3306; remaining, that is, sole or single; by implication mere: - alone, only, by themselves.


And here is how E-Sword defines ginomai”.


G1096

γίνομαι

ginomai

ghin'-om-ahee

A prolonged and middle form of a primary verb; to cause to be (“gen” -erate), that is, (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literally, figuratively, intensively, etc.): - arise be assembled, be (come, -fall, -have self), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue, be divided, be done, draw, be ended, fall, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled, + God forbid, grow, happen, have, be kept, be made, be married, be ordained to be, partake, pass, be performed, be published, require, seem, be showed, X soon as it was, sound, be taken, be turned, use, wax, will, would, be wrought.


But yet, Trinitarian Christians will argue that the word BEGOTTEN only means coming into existence when it refers to humans. BUT they claim that when begotten refers to the Son of God then it does NOT mean to come into existence. Some Trinitarian Christians go as far as to say that Jesus was begotten WITHOUT being begotten. And that argument goes all the way back to the third-century. You can read in some Trinitarin concordances that the word “begotten” does NOT mean that Jesus had a beginning, And again, this argument goes all the way back to the third-century in the days of Tertullian. Listen to one of the writers from the early church writing about those who persecuted Eusebius for defending what was then called the ORTHODOX faith for being a HERETIC and how they were casts out of the church for denying the doctrine of the Trinity.

Arius writes a letter to Eusebius about the persecution that he and his fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord are receiving from the bishop Alexander of the church of Alexandria, Egypt. Here is a quote from that letter.

 

“(1.) To that most beloved man of God, the faithful and orthodox Eusebius, from Arius, unjustly persecuted by father Alexander because of the all-conquering truth which you, Eusebius, also are defending!

       (2.) Since my father Ammonius is going to Nicomedia, it seemed reasonable and proper to greet you through him, remembering at the same time the innate love and affection which you have for the brothers on account of God and his Christ, because the bishop [Alexander] is severely ravaging and persecuting us and moving against us with every evil. Thus he drives us out of every city like godless men since we will not AGREE with HIS public statements: that there was “always a God, ALWAYS a Son;” “as soon as the Father, so soon the Son [existed];” “with the Father co-exists the Son unbegotten, ever-begotten, begotten without begetting;” “God neither PRECEDES the Son in aspect or in a moment of time;” “always a God, ALWAYS a Son, the Son being from God himself.

 


Did you notice that Arius and Eusebius were teaching ORTHODOX Christianity by DENYING the doctrine of the Trinity? Now to ME, this DOGMATIC demanding of the Roman Catholic church to ENFORCE this doctrine of the Trinity that demands that there be a CO-ETERNAL SON who had absolutely NO BEGINNING and who was begotten WITHOUT being begotten simply does NOT AGREE with what the WHOLE word of Almighty God clearly teaches us. 

And this is what Arius was trying to get the Roman Catholic church to see. In some of the early church writings about Arius he is praised highly for his godly moral life, but at the same time, he and the MANY “ORTHODOX” Christians who believed what Arius and Eusebius taught concerning Jesus NOT pre-existing in eternity past were heavily persecuted by bishop Alexander of Alexandria for DENYING the doctrine of the Trinity which has somehow become Orthodox Christianity after the Roman Catholic Church forced its way to become the so-called Mother Church.

And when you truly take a close look at what this Roman Catholic bishop Alexander taught, I myself have to wonder who the “real heretic” is. I mean, what kind of SOUND BIBLICAL statement is the following? 

 

“There was “always a God, ALWAYS a Son;” “as soon as the Father, so soon the Son [existed];” “with the Father co-exists the Son unbegotten, ever-begotten, begotten without begetting;” “God neither PRECEDES the Son in aspect or in a moment of time;” “always a God, ALWAYS a Son, the Son being from God himself.

 

I mean, really, FROM God Himself but ALWAYS a Son, now that would truly be a MYSTERY for the Son to be UNBEGOTTEN, EVER BEGOTTEN, and to be begotten WITHOUT being BEGOTTEN.

Yet, this same trying to explain away the TRUE meaning of “BEGOTTEN” still exists today in Trinitarian BIASED concordances. Here is a quote from the New Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance defining the word “BEGOTTEN” Strong’s #3439 concerning Jesus Christ.

 

“(4) With reference to Christ, the phrase “the only begotten of the Father”, John 1:14, indicates that as the Son of God he was the sole REPRESENTATIVE of the Being and character of the ONE who sent him… 

...(4d) The glory was that of a unique relationship and the word “begotten” does NOT imply a BEGINNING of his sonship.

(4c) It (speaking of the word begotten)suggest relationship indeed but MUST be DISTINGUISHED from GENERATION as applied to MAN.

(5) We can only RIGHTLY understand the term “the only BEGOTTEN” WHEN used of the Son in the sense of an UN-originated relationship.

(5a) The begetting is NOT an event in TIME however remote but a FACT irrespective of TIME.

(5b) The Christ did NOT BECOME but NECESSARILY and eternally is the Son, He is a person and he possesses every attribute of Godhood.

(5c) This NECESSITATES eternity, absolute being, in this respect he is NOT AFTER the Father…

…(8) In John 3:16 the statement “God so loved the world that He gave His only BEGOTTEN Son” MUST NOT be taken to mean that Christ BECAME the only begotten Son BY INCARNATION.”

 

So then, It is ONLY the Trinitarian Christian who CLAIM that for everyone else the word BEGOTTEN means GENERATED and BROUGHT INTO existence where we never existed before except in the minds of our parents to have a child BUT for the Son of God the SAME exact word does NOT mean what it says. Notice that this BIASED definition of the Greek word “monogenes” NECESSITATES eternity and absolute being for the Son. And that is because IF the Son is NOT co-eternal then the whole doctrine of the Trinity would fall apart and be proven to be FALSE teaching. So it is NECESSARY for these Trinitarian BIASED concordances to TWIST the TRUE meaning of the word BEGOTTEN to make an EXCEPTION when Jesus is begotten of the Father.

Also, did you notice definition number (5a) that begetting is NOT an event in TIME however remote but a FACT irrespective of TIME? But yet the Bible ITSELF clearly teaches us that Jesus was begotten as God’s ETERNAL Son on a SPECIFIC DAY IN TIME.

Please read Acts 13:32-41 where we can clearly see in SIMPLICITY that Jesus was BEGOTTEN of God on a certain DAY in time and that certain day in time ACCORDING to the Bible ITSELF was AT the RESURRECTION of the Son of MAN.

 

Acts 13:32-41.

 

“And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the PROMISE which was made unto the fathers,

33. God has FULFILLED the same unto us their children (And HOW did God FULFILL the Scripture of the PROMISE of prophecy being spoken of here?), IN THAT He has RAISED UP Jesus AGAIN; AS IT is also WRITTEN in the second psalm, You are my Son, THIS DAY have I BEGOTTEN you. (Now, some Christians argue and say that this teaching or doctrine of Jesus becoming the Son of God AT his RESURRECTION is based upon ONE verse only here in Acts 13:33 and make the CLAIM that the term this day is speaking of ETERNITY for there is no time with God. But the writer of the book of Acts clearly states that the prophecy written in Psalms chapter 2 has God FULFILLED IN THAT he has RAISED UP or has BEGOTTEN Jesus from the DEAD. The CONTEXT clearly shows this fulfillment of Psalms 2 being the resurrection by the bringing out other prophecies being FULFILLED AT the RESURRECTION of Jesus)

34. AND AS CONCERNING that He RAISED him UP from the DEAD, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David. (In other words, Almighty God GAVE the Son of MAN, Jesus, ETERNAL LIFE AFTER the CROSS never to die anymore)

35. Wherefore He said (Or Almighty God said through His prophet David) ALSO in another psalm, You shall not suffer your Holy One to see corruption. (So then, IF SO BE it is true that Jesus was BEGOTTEN in eternity past as some Christians claim, Then that would mean that Psalm 2 was fulfilled in eternity PAST. Therefore, those Christians must be consistent in their interpretation of verse 33 and also demand that verses 34-36 were fulfilled place in eternity past as well. I mean THINK this through for yourself my dear brothers and sister in our Lord Jesus Christ. 

IF SO BE that Jesus was ALREADY begotten as God's Son in ETERNITY past with or without having a beginning then it makes NO sense for God to INSPIRE godly men of old to write down PROPHECY foretelling of a certain DAY that his Son would be BEGOTTEN at some point IN TIME in the future. And THEN inspire the disciples of Jesus to TEACH us that the PROPHECY in Psalm 2 was FULFILLED in THAT God RAISED Jesus from the DEAD to never die again. 

All I am saying is that I did not write the Bible and I am only telling you what the Bible ITSELF plainly STATES as FACT with no interpretation needed. So rather than interpreting THIS verse another way to TRY and explain it away, why not go back and take a CLOSER look at those verses that SEEM to be saying that Jesus pre-existed in eternity past. For you see, those verses must be INTERPRETED as Jesus pre-existing as God's eternal divine SON who was WITH God at his SIDE for all eternity past. Those verses must be INTERPRETED that God sent down from heaven God the Son, the second person of the Trinity Godhead. But there are NO verses of Scripture that prophesy some God the Son coming down from heaven to incarnate himself in the flesh but yet REMAIN fully divine having TWO natures. I mean, I myself have never read one verse in the entire Bible that teaches us of Jesus having TWO NATURES one divine and the other human at the SAME time during the days of his FLESH. 

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that the Bible ITSELF does NOT teach us that Jesus had TWO natures during the days of his FLESH, but rather, it is man's THEORETICAL TRADITION that was formed over centuries by the Roman Catholic Church? The doctrine of the Deity of Jesus dogmatically demands that Jesus was Deity in eternity past and Deity DURING the days of his FLESH on the earth before the CROSS. BUT the Bible ITSELF teaches that Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED by the Father. So how can Deity be highly exalted? Do not the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of Oneness teach that Jesus IS ALMIGHTY God himself? So then, how can the HIGHEST God who is already the HIGHEST be highly exalted? Do you see what I mean about the WHOLE word of God?)

36. For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:

37. But he, whom God RAISED AGAIN (Or whom God has BEGOTTEN AGAIN from the DEAD and has given immortality never more to die. Remember that Jesus said that MAN must be BORN AGAIN to enter into the kingdom of God. Actually Jesus teaches a TWO stage process of being born again. First, we are born again by the word of God so that we can SEE or UNDERSTAND the things of the kingdom or the things of God and then we WILL BE born again AT the FIRST RESURRECTION at the second coming so that we can ENTER INTO the kingdom of God because this mortal body of FLESH must put on IMMORTALITY to ENTER into the kingdom of God), saw no corruption. (And Jesus was made to BECOME immortal by his God and Father GIVING him life to HAVE in himself even as the Father has always had the DIVINE NATURE OF immortality in himself)

38. Be it known unto you, therefore, men and brethren, that through this MAN is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: (Nowhere in the Scriptures is Jesus ever called the God/man. That is a man-made THEORY that CONTRADICTS many, many verses in the Bible. Please read the study “37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!”)

39. And by him, all that believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.

40. Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;

41. Behold, you who despise, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in YOUR days, (Again, proving that Jesus was NOT begotten in eternity past BEFORE the creation of the world and mankind) a work which you shall in no wise believe, though a MAN declares it unto you.”

 


Jesus, the Son of MAN, declared that he would suffer and die on the cross and after three days would be raised from the dead, but no one, not even his disciples truly understood and believed his words until AFTER they WITNESSED his RESURRECTION by Jesus showing himself alive by many infallible proofs for forty days AFTER Jesus descended BACK down from heaven. Now no one actually witnesses the event of Jesus being raised from the dead while it was happening, but rather they became witnesses to the TRUTH that Jesus was raised from the dead when Jesus SHOWED himself alive by many infallible proofs for forty days after Jesus was BEGOTTEN from the DEAD to be GIVEN the divine nature of ETERNAL LIFE by his God and Father. 

Jesus being BEGOTTEN from the DEAD is the heart of the gospel. This is what the Bible itself teaches us to believe in order to be SAVED. This is what sets Christianity apart from ALL other faiths. Many other religions believe that Jesus existed, but they do NOT believe that he was BEGOTTEN FROM THE DEAD. They do NOT believe that Jesus is DEITY or God. And had Satan KNOWN he would NOT have crucified that innocent pure Lamb of God, the Son of MAN, who offered himself without spot THROUGH the ETERNAL SPIRIT. 

I teach that Jesus is DEITY, but NOT in the way that the mainstream Orthodox churches teach. Rather I teach what the Bible ITSELF teaches and that is that Jesus became deity AFTER the cross after he OVERCAME. 

I teach that Jesus is the DIVINE Son of God, but NOT in the same way that the mainstream Orthodox church denominations teach. Rather, I teach what the Bible ITSELF teaches, which is that Jesus was GIVEN the divine nature of IMMORTALITY to HAVE eternal life in himself even as Yahweh the Father has always had life in Himself, AFTER the cross, after he OVERCAME sin THROUGH the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling IN him. 

I teach that Jesus IS God, but NOT in the way that the mainstream Orthodox denominational churches teach. Rather, I teach what the Bible ITSELF teaches, and that is that Yahweh the Father HIGHLY EXALTED his Son Jesus to BECOME a God who is UNDER and SUBJECT to Yahweh the Father AFTER the cross after Jesus OVERCAME as the Son of MAN having been ANOINTED or EMPOWERED by the eternal Spirit dwelling IN him.

And the REASON I teach only what the Bible ITSELF teaches is so that YOU can see and understand that the SAME anointing who dwelt IN Jesus NOW dwells IN YOU dear child of God to EMPOWER YOU to live without sin and do the SAME works that the Father Himself did through the human hands of his Son Jesus.

We all know that Jesus said the Scriptures testify of him. We have already seen in the PROPHECY in Isaiah 9:6,7 that Jesus shall be CALLED by the name the mighty God WHEN the government will be LAID upon his shoulders in the world yet to come. And when we read the context that follows John 1:18 we can see that the Jews wanted to know WHO is the “Christ” that was prophesied to come. The Jews were not looking for Yahweh Himself, but rather, they were looking for the ANOINTED Prophet who was prophesied to come.

So to me, all the Scriptures point to Jesus as being the FIRST begotten Son of God who right NOW is the ONLY begotten Son of God. AND the Scriptures ALSO point to Jesus as a BEGOTTEN God as well who will reign as the God over the whole earth FOR Yahweh for 1000 years. And at the end of the Millennial reign of Jesus, he will commit the Kingdom back into his God and Father’s hand. Please read the studies JOHN 1:18 THE ONLY BEGOTTEN GOD! and “ARE THERE TWO GODS?”

Also, below is a complete list of all the studies that I have which show WHY I no longer believe in the doctrine of the Trinity and why I can NEVER believe in the doctrine of Oneness. I assure you that every verse that SEEMS to be saying that Jesus pre-existed in eternity past has another meaning that does NOT contradict any other verses of Scripture in the entire Bible.

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you CONTINUE to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

 

Your Brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.

Now, I, myself, do not find one verse in the entire Bible that prophesies of God the Son being sent down from heaven to incarnate himself as the Son of God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

More Scriptures that show the TRUE Jesus to be the fulfillment of the Scriptures of PROPHECY that you can look up on your own: Luk_24:6-7, Luk_9:22, Luk_18:31-33; Mat_16:21, Mat_17:22-23, Mat_20:18-19; Mar_8:31-32, Mar_9:31; Mar_10:33-34; 1Pe_1:10-11; Rev_19:10+++ Joh_16:4-5, Joh_16:16-17, Joh_17:11-13+++Luk_24:26-27, Luk_24:46, Luk_21:22; Mat_26:54, Mat_26:56; Joh_19:24-37; Act_3:18, Act_13:29-31, Act_13:33; 1Co_15:3-4

In the law: Gen_3:15, Gen_14:18, Gen_22:18, Gen_49:10; Lev_16:2-19; Num_21:8, Num_35:25; Deu_18:15-19; Joh_3:14, Joh_5:46; Act_3:22-24, Act_7:37; Heb_3:5, Heb_7:1, Heb_9:8, Heb_10:1

In the prophets: Luk_24:27; Act_10:43; Isa_7:14, Isa_9:6, Isa_11:1-10, Isa_28:16, Isa_40:1-11, Isa_42:1-4, Isa_49:1-8, Isa_50:2-6; Isa_52:13-15, Isa_53:1-12, Isa_61:1-3; Jer_23:5, Jer_33:14; Eze_17:22, Eze_34:23; Dan_2:44, Dan_7:13, Dan_9:24-27; Hos_1:7-11, Hos_3:5; Joe_2:28-32; Amo_9:11; Mic_5:1-4; Hag_2:7-9; Zec_6:12, Zec_9:9, Zec_11:8-13, Zec_12:10, Zec_13:7, Zec_14:4; Mal_3:1-3, Mal_4:2-6

In the psalms: Psa_2:1-12, Psa_16:9-11, Psa_22:1-31, Psa_40:6-8, Psa_69:1-36, Psa_72:1-20, Psa_88:1-18; Psa_109:4-20, Psa_110:1-7, Psa_118:22; Joh_5:39; Act_17:2-3; 1Pe_1:11; Rev_19:10.

 

And as I promised here is the list of the six main headings that list all the studies I have on this subject as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

I will also give this list of the six following headings again at the end of this study so you can stay focused on one study at a time.

 

>>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<

 

>>>IS THE DOCTRINE OF ONENESS BIBLICAL?<<<

 

>>>WHO OR WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?<<<

 

>>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<<

 

>>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

>>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<<

 

And for further studies on false teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ please read the studies listed throughout all the studies here at AMatterOfTruth.com and view the videos under the tab at the top called >>>FALSE TEACHINGS!<<< Under that heading, you will find the facts of what religious groups like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Islam teach about Jesus as compared to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, as in, the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And by the phrase “the WHOLE word of Almighty God”, I mean that all verses of Scripture must be correctly interpreted in the LIGHT of the whole word of God and compared with all other correctly interpreted verses of Scripture, as opposed to, interpreting a few verses that are taken OUT of context to teach what is not the truth of the WHOLE word of God. For you see, whenever any INTERPRETATION of a verse of Scripture CONTRADICTS any other verses of Scripture that are correctly interpreted in the light of the whole word of Almighty God then that INTERPRETATION is NOT the correct interpretation. So always interpret the hard “controversial” verses in the light of the SIMPLE CLEAR verses that do not need any interpretation to understand what they mean.

Plain and simple, if the gospel you have been taught does NOT follow the teachings of the WHOLE word of Almighty God under the NEW COVENANT written in the New Testament, then you have NOT been taught the TRUE BIBLICAL Jesus. Again, this does NOT necessarily mean that you are not saved, but rather, that you may not be walking with God in the FULL potential that our heavenly Father desires for you to walk. If you do not understand what I mean by this please be patient, this will all become clear as you read all the studies I give links to within this study. But you must have a sincere desire to know the truth and nothing but the truth.

So let us begin this study in God's word by me giving you a list of titles of Jesus during the days of his FLESH. Again, I will give this same list at the end of this study as well but for now, I would like you to simply read the list of titles of who Jesus was CALLED before Jesus ascended into heaven. There are actually FIVE AGES of Jesus and Jesus is something different in each of those five ages. I will also give the link to the study on the five ages of Jesus at the end of this study as well. But for now, please stay focused on reading THIS entire study first. Here are twelve titles of Jesus as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY.

 

Remember that Jesus is something DIFFERENT is each of the FIVE AGES of Jesus. So please read the study “THE FIVE AGES OF JESUS!”

 

#1. Jesus is the “I AM HE”!

 

Jesus said and if you do not believe I am he you will die in your sins. In other words, Jesus is the fulfillment of PROPHECY! What I mean by this is that Jesus is the one who was prophesied to come. Please read the following studies “PROPHECIES OF JESUS BEING THE MESSIAH!”, 365 PROPHECIES OF JESUS!”, “HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF JESUS!”, “WHO IS THE TRUE MESSIAH?”, and “JOHN 8:24 IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE I AM HE!”

 

#2. Jesus is the Son of MAN!

 

Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament Scriptures in the ORDER that the events of prophecy were prophesied. So this list of who Jesus is, according to the Bible itself is listed in the order that they were prophesied. In other words, Jesus did not come as the King of kings FIRST. But rather, Jesus was born of a VIRGIN first to suffer for the sins of the people. And then, Jesus will come again as the King of Israel. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!”

 

#3. Jesus is the CHRIST!

 

The word “Christ” does indeed mean the Messiah but before the Son of MAN, Jesus, actually became the Messiah by his death on the cross, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN. Many times in the Bible the word translated as “SENT” means COMMISSIONED and sending, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity meaning of being sent down from heaven. In other words, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN at his baptism by John the Baptist with His Holy Spirit and power to be able to accomplish the task that his God and Father commissioned or sent him out into the world to do. Please read the studies “JESUS THE CHRIST!” and “JESUS SAID WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?”

 

#4. Jesus is the SON OF God!

 

Jesus was prophesied to be called the Son of God but the Son of MAN was not called the Son of God until his baptism by John the Baptist. This was when Yahweh the Father announced the Son of MAN as being His Son in whom he is well pleased. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF GOD!”
