GOD'S NEW CREATION created IN Jesus Christ


EDITED


God’s NEW Creation!



What is God’s NEW creation? Let us begin this study in God's word by reading 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 that teaches us that we as BELIEVERS in Jesus as the Christ, the SON OF the living God who suffered and died for our sins on the cross, are NEW CREATURES who are CREATED IN Jesus Christ. The LITERAL translation of Ephesians 2:10 reads that we are BEING created in anointed Jesus which we will read in a moment.


Here is 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 first.


Therefore if any man be IN Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away; behold, all things (Or more precisely THE ALL speaking of every believer IN Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God. Please click on this link to see the LITERAL translation for yourself.) are become NEW (Or a new creation).

18.  And all things (Again more precisely it should read THE ALL, as in every NEW creature create IN Jesus the Christ) are OF God, who has reconciled us to himself BY Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19.  To wit, that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”



The reason I said “more precisely” that the all “things” should read as THE ALL speaking of every NEW CREATURE created IN Jesus Christ is because the word “things” is not in the original text. Again see the LITERAL translation to see that the English word “things” was added by the translators and that it is not in the original Greek text. And also we can see by the CONTEXT that it is speaking about the BELIEVERS IN Jesus Christ. So “THE ALL” is referring back to every NEW CREATURE that is created IN Jesus Christ by Almighty God through faith in his Son Jesus.

This will all become very clear as we continue this study in God’s word. Let us now read Ephesians 2:4-10 which teaches us that God has created us to be new creature who are created IN Jesus Christ which God ordained before the world began or before God first created mankind.


Ephesians 2:4-10.


“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5.  Even when we were dead in sins, (HE Almighty God the Father) has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6.  And (HE Almighty God the Father) has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus:

7.  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8.  For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift OF God: (WHO GAVE the gift of his SON? I want all my Oneness readers to read the whole New Testament and do what I am doing in this study highlighting every pronoun in every verse that refers back to God and the Father in orange and highlight everything in every verse that refers to Jesus the Christ in yellow. Verses that have the phrases “IN him”, BY him” “THROUGH him” “FOR him” and so forth that refer to Jesus highlight in yellow so you can clearly see that the Son of MAN Jesus is a SEPARATE person from Almighty God the Father.)

9.  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10.  For we are his workmanship, CREATED IN Christ Jesus unto good works, (Again the LITERAL translation reads BEING created in anointed Jesus. We ARE BEING conformed into the IMAGE of God's dear Son Jesus. We do not yet have our new glorified immortal bodies.) which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.”


Now the reason I have highlighted the word “God” and all the pronouns referring back to God in orange and everything referring to Jesus in yellow is so that you can see that there are TWO persons or two different beings working TOGETHER to bring about this NEW creation OF God. Now God could have done this alone and by himself but he CHOSE to use his Son as the means by which they would BOTH together create a NEW CREATION in THEIR OWN IMAGE.

That is why I emphasized the words CREATED IN Jesus Christ so you could see that it is the Father AND the Son working TOGETHER to bring about this NEW CREATION OF God. Remember back in Genesis where God said let US make man in OUR IMAGE after OUR likeness. We will cover that passage of Scripture in a moment but first I want you to read Ephesians 3:4-21.

There is a lot in this passage of Scripture but what I want you to see is that God has now turned to the Gentiles with the gospel of salvation to be included into the FAMILY of God. I also want you to see that Paul is teaching the Gentiles the MYSTERY of Christ which is the mystery of the ANOINTING which is God DWELLING IN the BELIEVER. So again the “all things” in this passage of Scripture should have been translated as “THE ALL” referring to the BODY of Christ, the CHURCH.


Ephesians 3:4-21.


“How that by revelation he (Jesus teaching Paul by the Holy Spirit) made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

4.  Whereby, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

5.  Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; (The Holy Spirit never dwelt IN a person UNTIL Jesus but rather the Holy Spirit was WITH them and Jesus told his disciple that the Holy Spirit would be IN them. See John 14:17 “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not (Or does not understand him), neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and SHALL be IN you.” (That is the mystery of Christ or the mystery of the ANOINTING dwelling is us revealed to the church. The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. And this was revealed to the early Jewish believers as proof that they are accepted of God because of his Son Jesus)

6.  That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same BODY, (Speaking of the body of Christ, the CHURCH) and partakers of his (God the Father’s) promise IN Christ by the gospel: (Repent and be baptized and you shall RECEIVE the promise of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38,39.)

7.  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

8.  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

9.  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, (In other words, the mystery that is now revealed is what it means to be saved, to be IN Christ, to have God DWELL is us. This is the DOCTRINE of Christ or the doctrine of the ANOINTING dwelling not only in the flesh of Jesus but also dwelling in every believer IN the Son of God) which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, WHO CREATED all things BY Jesus Christ: (Again this should read “God the one CREATING THE ALL BY Jesus Christ or THROUGH Jesus ANOINTED.” Please check for yourself by reading the LITERAL translation. In other words there would be no NEW CREATION of God if it were not for Jesus becoming the FAITHFUL WITNESS to lay down his life for us. This was God’s PLAN of salvation from before the foundation of the world that all who BELIEVE would be saved IN his SON Jesus the ANOINTED OF God so that God could then DWELL IN every believer to endue each one of us with POWER from on high to do the SAME works that Jesus did THROUGH the eternal Spirit who DWELT IN him.)

10.  To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

11.  According to the eternal purpose which he purposed IN Christ Jesus our Lord:

12.  IN whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

13.  Wherefore I desire that you faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

14.  For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ,

15.  Of whom the whole FAMILY in heaven and earth is named,

16.  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; (Speaking of everyone of THE ALL CREATED IN Jesus Christ to become one of God’s NEW CREATION both those who have died IN Jesus Christ, and we are IN Christ Jesus at his coming again.)

17.  That Christ (Speaking of the ANOINTING, the SAME eternal Spirit who DWELT IN Jesus) may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18.  May be able to comprehend with all saints (THE ALL) what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19.  And to know the love of Christ (Speaking of the love of Jesus who of his own free will suffered and died a cruel death on the cross for each and every one of us so that whosoever of any human being who BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God might be saved. So BOTH the Father AND the Son loves us with a love), which passes knowledge, that (Or SO THAT) YOU might be filled with ALL the FULLNESS OF God.

20.  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

21.  Unto him be glory in the church BY Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”



To all my Oneness readers I want you to notice that Paul bowed his knee to the FATHER to give the FATHER glory BY Jesus Christ. We have access TO the Father BY our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the ONLY WAY TO the Father.


Ephesians 2:18.


“For through him (Or through his Son Jesus) we both (Speaking of both the Jewish believers and the Gentile believers being a NEW CREATION created IN Jesus Christ to become a part of THE ALL) have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”



So it is THROUGH God’s Son Jesus that we have been given access to God’s throne of grace that we may come before Almighty God the Father boldly and with confidence to find help in time of need. See Hebrews 4:14-16.

By now you should be seeing that the English word “things” was added by the translators and that the original text reads “THE ALL” as opposed to “all things”. And you should also be seeing that “THE ALL” that is BEING CREATED is speaking of THE ALL of everyone who BELIEVES being created IN God’s SON Jesus the Christ or Jesus the ANOINTED OF God. In other words, THE ALL is speaking of God’s NEW CREATION being created IN Jesus Christ where BOTH the Father AND his Son Jesus are still yet CREATING us in their IMAGE. The process began when we were born-again and will be completed when Jesus gives us eternal life in the world to come.


Let us read Colossians 3:10.


“And have put on the NEW man, which is renewed in knowledge AFTER the IMAGE of him that CREATED him:”


So then, the all “things” that Jesus created is NOT all things that have been created from the very beginning but rather it is THE ALL speaking of every NEW CREATURE being CREATED IN Jesus Christ to become a part of God’s NEW creation his FAMILY.

Now let us read Colossians 1:15-17 in its CONTEXT so you can clearly see that the CONTEXT is speaking about God’s NEW CREATION and NOT the creation of all things created in the beginning when Almighty God the Father ALONE and BY HIMSELF created all things according to Isaiah 44:24 and many other verses. We will cover all those verses at the end of this study.


Colossians 1:12-29.


“Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13.  Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14.  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (So we have TWO who are TOGETHER creating us in the image of God’s dear son who became the IMAGE of God after the cross when God the Father GAVE the Son of MAN the divine nature of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always had immortality in himself)

15.  Who is the image OF the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of every CREATURE: (The first human being to be the BEGINNING of THE ALL, the firstfruits of God, the ETERNAL Son of God, God’s first begotten from the dead who is right now God’s only begotten Son the firstborn among MANY brethren)

16.  For by him (This should read BECAUSE OF him speaking of Jesus being the very reason of why we are able to become New creatures created IN Jesus Christ BY the Father) were all things (Or for because of him were THE ALL) created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, (Again this should read BECAUSE OF him speaking of Jesus being the very reason of why we are able to become New creatures created IN Jesus Christ BY the Father) and for him: (Or for the SAKE OF him)

17.  And he is before all things (Or more precisely Jesus is both before in time and also before, as in, being above THE ALL, the HEAD of THE ALL who is the church the body of Jesus Christ. Jesus is before in time, in that, God foreordained in his mind’s eye of foreknowledge his Messiah in his plan of salvation before God finished forming every detail of his plan of salvation in his mind’s eye. This is how Jesus was before Abraham in time. Jesus is also before Abraham by being GREATER than Abraham. God started with having a Messiah first and then God formed the rest of his plan around his Messiah to include all the other details like father Abraham. It is no matter to God who was BORN before Jesus in God’s plan of salvation. In God’s MIND he STARTED with Jesus in his mind’s eye of foreknowledge BEFORE forming the rest of his plan of salvation in his mind. His Messiah was the center and highest part of God’s plan of salvation), and by him all things (Or more accurately THE ALL speaking of every NEW CREATURE created IN Jesus Christ BECAUSE OF him or FOR the SAKE OF him THE ALL or every NEW creature that God the Father created IN him) consist. (Please read the LITERAL translation now by clicking on the link in blue and then come back to the CONTEXT.)

18.  And he is the head of the body, the church (Or THE ALL): who is the beginning, (The beginning of the church, the body of Christ where Jesus is the head of the body, the BEGINNING OF the CREATION OF God speaking of God’s NEW creation THE ALL. A body is not complete without its HEAD. Jesus is our BROTHER) the firstborn from the dead; (The first human being to be raised from the dead AND be given the divine nature of immortality never more to die, the firstborn among many brethren who are being conformed into the IMAGE of God’s dear Son Jesus) that in all things he might have the preeminence. (Which LITERALLY reads “Who is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead ones that may be becoming in ALL he being firstIn other words, Jesus entered into God kingdom FIRST and also as the HIGHEST being every created by God TO the glory OF the Father. See Hebrews 2:9-11 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things [or FOR who are THE ALL], and by whom are all things [and BY whom are THE ALL], in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Heb 2:11  For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,” (Jesus is one of US being the first of THE ALL of God’s NEW CREATION. God highly exalted his FIRSTBORN among many brethren to be made the King of kings of the earth and the Lord of lords.)

19.  For it pleased the Father that IN him should all fullness dwell;

20.  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, BY him to reconcile all things (THE ALL) unto himself; BY him, I say, whether they be things (People are NOT things. THE they here is speaking of the THEY who are THE ALL of every NEW CREATION of God) in earth, or things (THE they who are THE ALL of every NEW CREATION of God) in heaven. (Speaking of the dead SOULS under the altar in heaven who are IN Jesus Christ and who God will bring with him at his coming.)

21.  And YOU, (Who are a part of THE ALL) that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled

22.  In the body of his flesh through death, to present YOU  (Who are a part of THE ALL) holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

23.  If YOU (Who are a part of THE ALL) continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature (Or every NEW CREATURE) which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; (To the body of Christ THE ALL created IN him)

24.  Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

25.  Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

26.  Even the MYSTERY which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

27.  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which IS Christ IN YOU, the hope of glory: (The SAME ANOINTING who dwelt IN Jesus now dwells IN us and believers to become a part of THE ALL of God’s NEW CREATION his church, his called out ones, his sons and daughters, his FAMILY if so be we REMAIN IN his Son Jesus Christ unto the end. That is why it is called the HOPE of GLORY for we have not yet been GLORIFIED to made partakers of the divine nature of immortality. It is the Spirit of Christ IN us by which we are endued with POWER from on high to overcome sin.)

28.  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect IN Christ Jesus:

29.  Whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily.”



The entire CONTEXT of Colossians 1:15-17 is speaking about God’s NEW CREATION being created IN his Son Jesus Christ and NOT that Jesus created everything that has ever been created since the beginning of time.

Colossians 1:15 says that Jesus who is the IMAGE OF the God is the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE. And Colossians 1:18 DEFINES what “FIRSTBORN” means according to the CONTEXT.  

 

Let us read Colossians 1:18 again.

 

“And he is the HEAD of the body, the church (Or Jesus is the head of THE ALL): who is the beginning, (Jesus is the beginning of the church, the body of Christ where Jesus is the HEAD of the body, the BEGINNING OF the CREATION OF God speaking of God’s NEW creation THE ALL) the firstborn from the dead; (The first human being to be raised from the dead AND be given the divine nature of immortality never more to die, the firstborn among many brethren who are being conformed into the IMAGE of God’s dear Son Jesus) that in all things he might have the preeminence. (Which LITERALLY reads “Who is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead ones that may be becoming in ALL he being FIRSTIn other words, Jesus entered into God's kingdom FIRST and also as the HIGHEST being every created by God TO the glory OF the Father. See Hebrews 2:9-11 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he BY the grace OF God should taste death for every man.

Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things [or FOR whom are THE ALL], and by whom are all things [and BECAUSE of whom are THE ALL], in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Heb 2:11  For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,”)


 

Let us now read where Jesus is our FORERUNNER or the one gone BEFORE us.

 

Hebrews 6:19,20.


“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil;

20.  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest forever after the order of Melchisedec.”


Jesus is now seated WITH the Father in his Father’s throne as the ONLY begotten Son of God and at his second coming we who are IN Jesus Christ will be made partakers of the divine nature to also become the ETERNAL Sons and daughters of God and we shall rule and reign WITH Jesus in the world to come over the mortals and the second death will have no more power over us who ARE Christ’s at his coming.


Revelation 3:21.


“To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down WITH my Father in HIS throne.”


To all my Oneness readers please notice that Jesus is NOT ALONE up in heaven but rather he is seated WITH his Father in HIS Father’s throne which God will commit into the hands of his Son during the seventh 1000 year long DAY of Yahweh’s Sabbath rest which was prophesied in Genesis 2:1-3. So then, once again, for a 1000 years the kingdom of Almighty God the Father will be committed into the hands of his Son Jesus and Jesus will rule FOR Yahweh during that seventh 1000 year long day of the Lord while Yahweh the Father RESTS in that seventh day Sabbath of the Lord from all his works. This is why Jesus is called the Lord of the SABBATH because Jesus will rule FOR Yahweh the Father while the Father THE LORD of the Sabbath RESTS during the seventh 1000 year long day of the Lord, the LORD’S Sabbath.

I want all my readers including my Trinitarian brothers and sister in the Lord to watch this video on YouTube by a Oneness Pastor preaching to his Oneness congregation what God had been showing him for over a year before he ever preached of word of this before his congregation. God opened his eyes of understanding. And with great humbleness he had to make the choice to either continue teaching the Oneness doctrine or humble himself to admit that he had been wrong concerning who Jesus truly is and thereby expose the errors of his own Oneness doctrine that he had been preaching for years. This two part video teaching exposes the errors of both the doctrine of the Trinity and his own doctrine of Oneness.

Part 1

Jesus Christ/ Is Jesus Almighty God or God’s Son?

Part 2

Jesus Christ/Is Jesus Almighty God or God’s Son?


And here is another two part video of another Oneness Pastor doing the same thing but it took him 19 years before God finally opened his eyes to the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God the Father.


Part 1.

I WAS WRONG!


Part 2.

I WAS WRONG!


After watching these two Oneness pastor’s personal testimonies of why they could no longer teach the doctrine of Oneness, I want all my Trinitarian brothers and sisters in the Lord to closely consider that while Jesus is indeed a separate person from the Father Jesus did NOT become God’s ETERNAL Son until AFTER the cross. So pause this study in God’s word and please read the study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOMES GOD’S ETERNAL SON?” for all the verses that prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that God did NOT have an eternal Son in eternity past but rather glorified the Son of MAN to BECOME his ETERNAL Son after the cross highly exalting the Son of man to the highest place of authority to sit at the Father’s own right hand.

After reading that study come back to this study for some more verses proving that it was Yahweh ALONE and BY HIMSELF who created all things and that TOGETHER with the Son of MAN Jesus they both created God’s NEW CREATION, THE ALL of everyone who BELIEVES in Jesus as the CHRIST, the ANOINTED OF God, the SON OF the living God who suffered and died on the cross to become the atonement for our sins and not only for our sin but also for the sins of the whole world and all it takes is for them to BELIEVE in God’s Son Jesus to become a part of the ALL who BELIEVE and obey the words of Jesus unto the end. Almighty God the Father and his Son Jesus were NOT the co-creator of all THINGS but rather they are the co-creators of THE ALL of whosoever BELIEVE in Jesus as the Christ, the SON OF the living God.


Let us now read Isaiah 44:24.


“Thus says the LORD (Or thus says Yahweh), YOUR redeemer, and he that formed YOU from the womb, I am the LORD (Or I am Yahweh) that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens ALONE; that spreads abroad the earth BY MYSELF;”


 

Three were NO US in eternity past as yet. The US became AFTER the Son of MAN accomplished suffering and dying on the cross as an innocent MAN to BECOME the co-creator of making man in THEIR own IMAGE. There was NO Son of God as yet in eternity past.

But rather Genesis 1:26,27 is a PROPHECY of God speaking TO his yet FUTURE Son of MAN that together they both would create a NEW PEOPLE OF God. Let us now read that prophecy of this new people that God SHALL create and we will come back to Genesis 1:26,27 so you can see that Yahweh ALONE and BY HIMSELF created man in HIS own image first.

 

Please read Psalm 102:18.


“This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which SHALL BE CREATED shall praise the LORD.”


This is speaking of God’s NEW CREATION who are CREATED IN Jesus Christ which is the ONLY WAY TO the Father. In other words, the only way to be IN the Father is to first be IN his Son Jesus by BELIEVING that Jesus is the CHRIST, the ANOINTED one OF God, the SON OF the living God who died for your sins. That is WHEN the US in Genesis 1:26,27 came to pass to be fulfilled and is yet being fulfilled and will continue to be fulfilled all the way to the end of the 1000 year reign of Jesus when the last first fruits are made partakers of the divine nature of immortality in the second harvest.

 

Now let us read 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. (This is NOT a Trinity God speaking but rather it is a PROPHECY of God speaking TO his Messiah, his Prophet raised up from among his people the children of Israel, his LAMB that was slain in the mind and plan of Yahweh before he created man upon the restored or recreated earth that became void by the war with Lucifer and the fallen angels. Keep in mind that Jesus was made a little LOWER or inferior to the angels for a REASON. Please read the study “UNDERSTANDING WHY?” for all the verses of WHY Jesus was made a little lower than the angels and then highly exalted above the angels after the cross.)


27.  So God (Yahweh alone and by himself which agrees with Isaiah 44:24) created man in HIS own image (And NOT is THEIR own image because God’s eternal Son did not yet exist), in the image of God created HE him (Yahweh alone and by himself which agrees with Isaiah 44:24); male and female created HE them.”



All the pronouns referring back to God are all SINGULAR which means that there was NO US in eternity past as the doctrine of the Trinity dogmatically demands. This is a PROPHECY speaking to God’s future Son of MAN to become the means by which God would save mankind by the foolishness of the preaching of the gospel so that THE ALL who BELIEVE unto the end would be saved.

The “US” did not come to pass UNTIL the Son of MAN was born of a Virgin as prophesied grew in stature and in favor of God, learned by the Holy Spirit morning by morning from a small child, being ANOINTED BY the Father with the Holy Spirit and then SENT out into the world to preach the kingdom of God is at hand and THEN the Son of MAN was GIVEN to suffer and die on the cross and THEN God raised the Son of MAN Jesus from the dead redeeming him from death, and THEN God GAVE the Son of man the divine nature of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always had immortality in himself to BECOME God’s ETERNAL Son. And THEN God HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of man to be “A” God under and subject to his God and Father to rule FOR Yahweh in the world to come for a 1000 years.

And this was prophesied in John 1:1 which can clearly be seen and understood in the LITERAL translation.

 

John 1:1 from the LITERAL translation.


“In beginning was the SAYING and the SAYING was TOWARD THE God and God was the SAYING.”


First notice that there is NO definite article “THE” in front of the word “beginning” to read as, THE beginning so it can not be dogmatically demanded that this particular beginning to the beginning of all God’s creation. Next please notice that the “logos” of God is translated as the SAYING was TOWARD THE God and God was the SAYING. God alone and by himself created all things by SPEAKING forth his word out from his mouth. The SAYING in Genesis 1:3 was LIGHT when God said let there be LIGHT and light was.

 

Let us read Genesis 1:1-3 from the LITERAL translation.


“ In beginning Elohim he created the heavens and the earth (ALONE and BY HIMSELF just as Isaiah 44:24 teaches us)

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

3. And Elohim he is SAYING he SHALL BECOME LIGHT and he is BECOMING LIGHT.”


So the SAYING in Genesis 1:3 is LIGHT and the SAYING of Yahweh not only become light, as in the light of day, the sun, and the night of night, the moon but Yahweh is BECOMING the LIGHT of the world.

What I want you to see here is that Yahweh BECOMES what he speaks into existence but we know that the sun and the moon are NOT Yahweh himself. When the Bible says that God is LIGHT it is speaking of UNDERSTANDING that he alone is the ONLY true God and SOURCE of all creation and without him SPEAKING his word there would be no creation whatsoever.

When the living word of God became the sun and the moon and every other thing that Yahweh SPOKE into existence the living word was stripped of all its divine nature. And in the same way when the living word BECAME FLESH, that human Son of MAN, was fully human without having any divine nature because the divine spoken living word was stripped of all its divine nature.

When we look up the phrase “DIVINE NATURE” we find only one time in the entire Bible and when we read the context we see that this phrase “DIVINE NATURE” means to be made a partaker of ETERNAL LIFE. So then, having the divine nature simply  means to be IMMORTAL.  In other words, having a divine nature does NOT mean DEITY. The word Deity is not even in the Bible. Let us read 2 Peter 1:4 which is the only time in the entire Bible that we see this phrase the divine nature.

 

2 Peter 1:4.


“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these YOU might be partakers of the DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”


Now having the DIVINE NATURE of immortality does not make one be Yahweh himself but rather to be made in his own IMAGE of becoming an ETERNAL being. The Son of MAN Jesus BECAME an ETERNAL being AFTER the cross and you have seen in the study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”. For some of you my readers and true seekers of God’s truth you will only need to read this one verse where the PROPHECY of Jesus BECOMING the eternal Son of God is FULFILLED at the resurrection of the Son of MAN Jesus.

 

Acts 3:13.


“God has FULFILLED the same unto us their children, 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.”


So then since there was NO God the Son, the second person of the Trinity in eternity past then WHAT did Jesus CREATE in Colossians 2:15-17,  Ephesians 2:9-11, in Revelation 3:13, in Hebrews 1:2, and in John 1:1-3?

Let us read 1 Corinthians 8:6 which agrees with Isaiah 44:24 as Yahweh being the creator of all things in eternity past alone and by himself and also being the co-creator with the Son of man Jesus to create his NEW CREATION THE ALL of everyone whosoever who BELIEVES that Jesus is the Christ the SON OF the living God to be created IN Jesus Christ.

 

1 Corinthians 8:6.


“But to us there is but ONE God, the FATHER, OF whom are all things (Or OF whom are THE ALL speaking of God’s NEW creation created IN his Son Jesus the Christ), and we in him;(Or we THE ALL are IN Yahweh the Father the ONLY true God by being IN his Son Jesus) and ONE Lord Jesus Christ, BY (Or FOR) whom are all things (Or FOR whom are THE ALL), and WE (THE ALL who BELIEVE to become a part of God’s NEW creation are) BY him (or BECAUSE OF him).”



Because the Son of MAN Jesus lives we know that we shall live also.

 

2 Corinthians 4:14-18.


Knowing that he (Yahweh the Father) which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us ALSO BY Jesus, and shall present us with you.

15.  For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

16.  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17.  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, (Compared to all eternity) works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18.  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”



So whether we live or die we KNOW that we shall LIVE and be with our Lord Jesus forever in the worlds yet to come. And it NOT has come into the minds of what God has prepared for us in the ages to come for those of us who love God and his Son Jesus the Christ.

 

1 Corinthians 2:9.


“But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.”


Ephesians 2:7.


“That in the AGES to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”


Jesus himself identified his God and Father as being the creator in Mark 13:19.


“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.”

 

And in Mark 10:6 Jesus again identified God as being the creator of man and woman just as we saw in Genesis 1:27 that God alone and by himself in the SINGULAR created man and woman.


Mark 10:6.


“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.”


Revelation 4:8-11 teaches us that it was the Almighty God who created all things for his good pleasure.


“And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

9.  And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

10.  The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, AND worship him that lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11.  You are WORTHY, O Lord, (Speaking of our Lord Jesus the Christ) to RECEIVE glory and honor and power: for (Or because of your WILL to lay down your life) you have created all things (Again this is NOT speaking about everything that has been created but rather in this verse is speaking about THE ALL of whosoever BELIEVES in Jesus to become a part of God’s NEW CREATION his FAMILY, the eternal sons and daughters of God whom God will GIVE to his Son Jesus), and for your pleasure they are and were created.”


Yahweh himself alone and by himself created all things FOR his Son Jesus. This was the JOY set before the Son of man Jesus to endure the cross to yield his own will to his God and Father’s will. Please see Hebrews 12:2 to understand that Yahweh set a JOY before the Son of man Jesus as a reward for enduring the cross and bearing OUR sins to taste death for every man. And part of that reward was to be made the HEAD of the church the called out ones, THE ALL of whosoever believes to become a part of god’s NEW CREATION.

 

Isaiah 43:4.


Since you wast precious in my sight, you hast been honorable, and I have loved you: THEREFORE will I give men for you, and people for your life.”



Now let us read Hebrews 2:5-18.


“For unto the angels has HE (Yahweh, Almighty God the Father the ONLY true God according the Jesus himself in John 17:1-3.) not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. (Why NOT the angels? Because one third of them were deceived by Lucifer to rebel and make all out war against God and God is proving to his angels that he created them perfect in the day he created them.)

6.  But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is MAN, that you are mindful of him? Or the son of MAN, (Speaking of Jesus the Messiah) that you visit him?

7.  YOU made him (The Son of MAN Jesus) a little lower than the angels; (WHY? Why did Almighty God make Jesus a little lower and inferior to the angels? To clear his name from being profaned by the fallen angels falsely accusing Yahweh that he created them with an evil spirit to rebel against him and thus Yahweh has no right to destroy them in the lake of fire he has prepared for the angels that fell.) You crowned him with glory and honour, and  (YOU Yahweh alone and by yourself) did set him over the works of YOUR hands:

8  YOU have put all things in subjection under his (The Messiah’s) feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him,  (Yahweh’s Messiah) he (Yahweh the Father) left nothing that is not put under him. (Yahweh’s Messiah) But now we see not yet all things put under him. (Yahweh’s Messiah who we know is the Son of MAN Jesus)

9. But we see Jesus, (Yahweh’s Messiah) who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he (Yahweh’s Messiah) BY the grace of God should taste death for every man.

10. For it became him, FOR whom are all things (Or FOR who are THE ALL who are being created IN him), and BY whom are all things (or BECAUSE OF whom are THE ALL of every NEW CREATION of God), in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation PERFECT through sufferings. (Jesus was MADE PERFECT by his God and Father. The word “perfect” here means to be given the divine nature of immortality. Please see Hebrews 5:9, Hebrews 11:39,40, and Hebrews 12:23)

11.  For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them (THE ALL of every NEW CREATURE created IN him) brethren,

12.  Saying, I (Jesus your Messiah whom you have raised up) will declare YOUR name (Yahweh my God and Father) unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto YOU. (To all my Oneness readers, it makes no sense whatsoever for Yahweh himself to sing praises unto himself. Jesus is the IMAGE OF Yahweh and not Yahweh himself. Jesus is the SON OF the living God and NOT the one and only true God himself. Yes Jesus is divine but he did not RECEIVE his divine nature until AFTER the cross when Yahweh GLORIFIED the Son of MAN for his obedience to do all his God and Father’s will even to suffer and die on the cross for OUR sins.)

13.  And again, I  (Yahweh’s Messiah) will put my trust IN him. And again, Behold I  (Yahweh’s Messiah) and the children which God has GIVEN me.

14.  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Yahweh’s Messiah) also himself  (Yahweh’s Messiah) likewise took part of the same; that through death he (Yahweh’s Messiah) might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

15.  And deliver them (THE ALL of whosoever believes to become a part of God’s NEW CREATION his FAMILY, THE ALL of THEM) who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

16  For verily he (The Messiah) took not on him (The Messiah) the nature of angels; but he (The Messiah) took on him the seed of Abraham.

17.  Wherefore in all things it behoved him (Yahweh to make his Messiah) to be made like unto his (The Messiah’s) brethren, that he (The Messiah) might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

18.  For in that he (The Messiah) himself has suffered being tempted, he (The Messiah) is able to succour them that are tempted.”


I want all my readers to read the NIV version of Hebrews 2:17 so you can see that it was needed for Yahweh to make Jesus a little lower than the angels like all other human beings.

 

Hebrews 2:17 from the New International Version.


For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.”


The King James Version masks this truth of God’s word by translating this verse as it BEHOVED him to make it sound as if a pre-existing God the Son made the choice to come down from heaven to become a human being to die for the sins of the people. But in truth it was the Son of MAN who was given the choice to lay down his own life for our sin.

Let us continue with the verse where Yahweh alone and by himself created all things and  then AFTER the cross Jesus became a co-creator with Yahweh to created THE ALL of every NEW CREATION created IN him.

 

Isaiah 44:24.  

 

“Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am the LORD that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens ALONE; that spreads abroad the earth BY MYSELF;”

 

 

Revelation 10:6.


“And swore by him (Yahweh, Almighty God the Father) that lives for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:”


This verse is actually speaking of God himself creating the NEW Heavens and the NEW Earth at the end of the 1000 year reign of Jesus.

 

Now let us go to Revelation 21:1-5.


“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”


Now Jesus, will at this time, have been ruling FOR Yahweh for a 1000 years and has now committed the kingdom back into his Father’s hand or rule that God may be all in all according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-28. So then, the God HIMSELF who come down out of heaven, is Yahweh himself seeing that God’s Son has already been ruling over the earth for the past 1000 years when God HIMSELF come down to dwell with men.

I could quote all the Old Testament verses where Yahweh himself is identified as being the creator but those verses will not convince anyone who has their mind made up that Jesus is Yahweh himself. So let us read the LITERAL translation of John 1:1-3 where you can see that it is THE ALL referring to every one of God’s NEW CREATION who are being created by God and his SAYING.


John 1:1-3 from the LITERAL translation.


“In beginning was the saying and the saying was TOWARD THE God and the saying was God.

2. This was in beginning TOWARD THE God.

3. ALL through SAME came to be and apart from same came yet not ONE which has become.”


In other words, UNTIL Jesus returns to give reward to his servants, Jesus shall be the ONLY begotten Son of God. Jesus is the ONLY FIRSTFRUITS unto God at this present time. Jesus is the ONLY FIRSTBORN from the dead at this time. Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son AT THIS TIME.

In other words, not YET ONE of THE ALL who are being created IN Jesus Christ have been made partakers of the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY as YET.

 

The word was TOWARD the God.  The word “TOWARD” as defined by the American Heritage Dictionary means; 1. in the direction of, 2. in a position facing, 3. somewhat before in time, approaching, 4. with regard to, in relation to, 5. in furtherance of partial fulfillment of. 6. BY WAY OF ACHIEVING; WITH A VIEW TO, 7. IN PROGRESS or IMMINENT, TRACTIBLE, Coming, favorable, future. Also the word “TOWARD” carries the meaning of forward motion, which again agrees with the interpretation of the Word being the SPOKEN WORD.


God had a VIEW in his mind and plan to raise up a Prophet from among the people to be his Savior. The word was WITHIN THE God until he SPOKE FORTH the word out from his mouth to BECOME whatever the SAYING was in John 1:1. And we can see that the SAYING was God, as in, another God who would be under and subject to his God Yahweh the ONLY TRUE and ALMIGHTY God who alone is the FATHER. And we can also clearly see that the Son of MAN Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED to BECOME a God under and subject to his God and Father Yahweh.

Plain and simple the Son did not become a SEPARATE person from Yahweh until the Virgin birth when the SAYING of God became FLESH. And AFTER the son of MAN became obedient to do all his God and father’s will THEN Yahweh the Father GLORIFIED the Son of man to BECOME God’s ETERNAL Son and also to become a God to rule FOR Yahweh in the world to come.


Thanks for reading and May God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the whole word of Almighty God the Father.

Your Brother in our Lord Jesus the Christ,

Brother Mark.
