JESUS THE SON OF MAN

 



JESUS THE SON OF MAN




This particular study on Jesus being the Son of MAN is one of the very first Bible studies that I did. When I first became a Christian I would first write down as a bunch of notes in the form of questions whenever I would read a verse in the Bible that did NOT seem to agree with what I was being taught by the church denomination that I was attending. Later God impressed upon me to organize those notes of what the Holy Spirit was showing me int to bible studies for others to read. And not just for others, but also for myself to read over and over again throughout my life. I do this more so on studies that related to Christians life such as Bible studies on prayer, living free from sin and receiving healing. Let us begin this study with a little background on myself and what I was taught to believe by the churches I attended.
I was raised in the Roman Catholic church, but actually became a true born again Christian at the age of 22 while attending my girlfriend's church, which was a Pentecostal Church called the Assemblies of God.
Now both the Roman Catholic church and the Assemblies of God teach the doctrine of the Trinity. and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus. And at that time in my Christian walk, when I first became a believer, I only knew of one other type of Christian or Christian church denomination, who called themselves Oneness Pentecostals. Later on, I found that the Oneness Pentecostals split away from the Assemblies of God denomination because of a disagreement of how they believe about Almighty God and his Son, Jesus. 
The Assemblies of God Pentecostal believe that Jesus is a DISTINCT SEPARATE person from the Father, while Oneness Pentecostals believe that Jesus IS the Father. So for a long time, I sincerely believed that a Christian had only TWO choices as to what they MUST believe in order to truly be saved. I other words, many Christians even today, sincerely and truly believe that they must choose to either be a Oneness believer or a believer in the doctrine of the Trinity and there is NO other option. That is how much some church indoctrinates their congregation to keep them blind to what other teachings there are among Christians. More on this shortly, but for now I want to focus on what I myself knew AT that time in my life.
Well, I myself had already seen directly from God's word that Jesus is a distinct separate person from Almighty God the Father and Oneness believers dogmatically insist the Jesus IS the Father. So I knew directly from the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, that the doctrine of Oneness was not a sound Biblical teaching because they dogmatically demand that Jesus is one and the self-same being as Almighty God the FATHER. 
However, at the same time in my life, the Holy Spirit was ALSO showing me directly from the word of God as well, that the doctrine of the Trinity was also NOT a sound Biblical teaching.
And for the sake of unity and to avoid the strife that comes from confrontation, then we as Christians often avoid issues in the Bible that we disagree upon. Some times we hear people say, "Let's just agree to disagree", but the word of God teaches that we should ALL speak the SAME thing. At times, simply avoiding the issue may, in fact, be a good thing, in order to give time for some to grow or mature in the faith. However, keeping the truth suppressed in some instances has held back the body of Christ from walking in its fullest potential, and has caused some Christians NOT to mature or grow in the Lord as they ought to have grown.
So for a long time, I kept what the Holy Spirit was showing me to myself. Then one day God gave me dream where he revealed to me that I can no longer keep the truth that he has shown to me in the word of God to myself. I knew in my spirit that no matter what my brothers and sisters in the Lord thought of me for QUESTIONING the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus, I must share what the Holy Spirit was revealing to me because these two doctrines were holding back the growth of the church as a whole.  
In other words, some Christians were still baby Christians in their walk with God, when they should have been by now mature Christians walking in their FULL potential with God. And one of the main reasons for Christians NOT growing in the Lord is due to dogmatically demanding that any teaching that did not agree 100% with what their church denomination teaches is a FALSE doctrine. And it seems to be taken lightly by some with the attitude that says, well let us just agree to disagree. Let me give you an example. Some churches teach that the gifts of the Holy Spirit were ONLY for the Apostles to get the Church started and after the Apostle died and thus to them those gifts of the Holy Spirit have CEASED. And as a RESULT of such false teaching those particular Christians are being DECEIVED that healing is no longer for the church today, and thus THEY are not walking in their FULL potential as a Christian to receive healing or the help other Christians receive their healing that God has ready provided for them in the name of Jesus. 
In other words, they are basically saying, I don't care what you have to say because I already know all there is to know on the subject and I am right and you are wrong. Or they may say, Well I just do not understand the Bible, which may be true only because no one has ever taught them how to study the Bible for themselves, or they may have been taught how to study the Bible but they have never taken the time to learn of their own and thus the only thing they learn is what THEIR church denomination teaches them.
 The truth of the matter is that some Christians simply do not study the word of God for THEMSELVES to see if what they are being taught is the truth of the whole word of Almighty God. Some say that they have studied the Bible, but really all they did was to study what THEIR church denomination has taught them and therefore they have not truly and sincerely searched out the WHOLE matter considering closely ALL the evidence from all sides of the controversy. Take the example that I just gave to you and try and put yourself in the place of those who sincerely and truly believe that healing and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are not for the church today. Now you yourself KNOW that they are in error, but put yourself in THEIR shoes to try and understand WHY that THEY do not see the truth of the whole word of God. When you do this, then you can clearly see that they are NOT willing to even consider a word you have to say even though all you are trying to do is to HELP them GROW in the Lord so that they can enjoy the benefits of what God has already provided for them.
 I believe with all my heart that when the Holy Spirit shows us a truth in the word of God, that it is revealed for the purpose of helping us ALL to grow in faith, and not just for ourselves alone. So, therefore, this revealed knowledge should NOT be withheld from the body of Christ by suppressing it on the grounds that some are still babes in Christ and not yet able to fully understand the deeper truths of God's word. Some Christians remain babes in the Lord because they are never given any strong meat or deep teaching of God's word. What I mean by this is that I have heard pastors say that their church is full of baby Christians and that is the reason WHY they do not teach on deeper things in the Bible. Well with that kind of logic their congregation will never grow and mature in the Lord.
The truth of the matter is that sometimes baby Christians understand deeper truth more than the, so called, "mature" Christians, because they have not yet had time for their minds to be filled with the traditions of men and other well meaning, but still yet FALSE doctrine, which they have heard over and over through the years of going to church and not searching the word of God for themselves to see if what they are being taught is the truth. Again some Christians have been DECEIVED simply because they have not gone to the word to PROVE for themselves whether or not the things that they are being taught are in fact the TRUTH of God's word, the WHOLE word of God.
 
So let us begin this study in God's word by taking a look at Acts 17:10,11,
 
“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea; who, coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so”.   
  
Every Christian book we read, and all that we hear concerning God's word, whether it be a sermon at church, a Bible teacher on the radio, or just a conversation with a friend ought to be closely examined in the light of God’s word. In other words, you need to prove it out for YOURSELF by using God’s word as your sole foundation to see whether or not you are being taught the TRUTH, and not just being taught PART of God's word which has been taken out of context. Do not simply say, well that is not what MY church denomination teaches, so therefore it is false teaching. Those Christians who have been TAUGHT by THEIR church denomination that the gifts of the Holy Spirit have CEASED do indeed sincerely believe that they alone have the truth and every other teaching out there is a false doctrine of the devil. 
But we who know the truth and who have received healing and who are being used by the Holy Spirit in the gifts of the Holy Spirit know that they are being DECEIVED by the devil and all we want to do is to HELP them see the TRUTH of the whole word of God so that they can GROW to their FULL potential to DO the very same works that men saw Jesus doing THROUGH the eternal Spirit dwelling in him. And until they and you search the word of God for YOURSELVES, then you will only believe what OTHERS are dogmatically demanding if the truth.
 This study which you are reading now is no exception. I strongly urge you to examine all of the Scriptures I have used to support what I am saying very closely to be absolutely sure that they were not taken out of context, or misused in any way. Prove it out for yourself, so that you yourself will be fully persuaded in your own mind and in your own heart that it is the TRUTH, the WHOLE TRUTH, and nothing but the TRUTH without contradicting any other part of God's word. 
I pray that you will never find any of what I teach as being dogmatically demanding and receive my words the wrong way to think that I am saying that you must believe every word I teach in order to be saved and receive eternal life in the world to come. I pray that you understand that I am presenting to my readings what I myself truly and sincerely believe that the Holy Spirit has revealed to me to share with those who are truly seeking the truth of the whole word of Almighty God. My heart is for the sheep who have been scattered and who are struggling to understand the truth that THEY truly feel that the Holy Spirit has ALREADY been showing them, but their own church denomination will not even consider a word they have to say or take the time to answer any questions that they have because their questions are questioning what their church denomination is teaching them.

Now, I myself began this study in the word of God to PERSONALLY answer the questions for myself. I was seeing things in the word of God that cause me to QUESTION what I was being taught about Jesus being fully Almighty God himself and fully a human being at the same time having two natures, one divine, and one human. I word hear sermons like Jesus was God BECAUSE ONLY God can heal people, and ONLY God can live without sin. 

So I was asking myself the three part question:

Did Jesus do the miracles that he did while he was in the earth as:

  • Number one, as Almighty God himself in the flesh?

  • Number two, as the Son of God?

  • Or number three, as the Son of Man, anointed with the Holy Ghost?

These questions arose within me because I had heard some people say that Jesus is God or that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh and ONLY God can do these things. Some teach that Jesus was God and man at the same time. Some maintained that Jesus is 100% man, and yet also 100% God at the same time, in other words, some teach that Jesus was FULLY God and yet still fully man at the SAME time while he was on the Earth. While others say Jesus is 50% God and 50% man, as in, a God-man being half God and half man. And still, yet others maintain that Jesus is God in the flesh giving no emphases on how much human, or how much God, Jesus actually was. 
Some Christian, mostly Trinitarians or Christians who believe in the doctrine of the Trinity, say that Jesus WAS God in heaven, as in, Jesus was God the SON, who with WITH God the Father at his side from all eternity past and never had a beginning. And then, when Jesus himself or God the Son, the second person of the Trinity came down to the Earth it was Jesus, the SON of God, who BECAME or was MADE flesh while he was on the earth, BUT the Son of God REMAINED the fully DIVINE eternal God. And they add to this doctrine of the Deity of Jesus, that Jesus is still EQUAL with Almighty God the Father in every way where neither God the Father or God the Son is less than or greater than the other.
But the Oneness Christians believe and teach that God is NOT three persons in one God, but rather God is three MANIFESTATION in the one God. Thus they teach that there was NO God the Son who was WITH the God at his side in all eternity past, but rather God MANIFESTED himself to become flesh or to become the Son of God to REMAIN fully the Almighty God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human at the SAME time. And thus Oneness believers dogmatically demand that Jesus IS one and the self-same being as the FATHER to insist that during the days of the flesh of Jesus that Jesus was NOT a separate distinct person from his God and Father, the Almighty God.
However, the more I searched the Scriptures to see which view was right I quickly began to see that none of these views I just mentioned are soundly based upon the SCRIPTURES, that is to say, that none of the above-mentioned teachings of Oneness, the Trinity, and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus are based on the WHOLE word of God. As you read this and other studies that I have written you will find that I use the term "the WHOLE word of God" quite often. This is because so many FALSE teachings do indeed use verses of Scripture from the Bible to try and support what they teach, but the truth of the matter is that these verses of Scripture are taken OUT of their context and the conclusions or the interpretation that are drawn CONTRADICT other portions of God's word.
I mean consider the example of the FALSE teaching that the gifts of the Holy Spirit have CEASED. The Christians who sincerely believe what THEIR church denomination teaches them if the truth because their church has shown them the proof from the Bible by quoting Scriptures. But what THOSE Christians have done is to search out ONLY what THEIR church denomination teaches them and thus they have been filled with pride thinking that they only have the truth and they are ABOVE being able to be deceived.
When the Holy Spirit show me this, I began to consider the REASONS of WHT other Christians believe what they believe and teach. And when I began to see the REASONS my eyes were opened to see that SOME of what each church denomination teaches have SOME truth.
 
So then, as I have just said, those who teach that Jesus is God in the flesh, being FULLY God, as in, Jesus being FULLY the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God in the flesh and yet at the same time Jesus was also FULLY man having TWO natures, one divine, and one human, do indeed use Scriptures to try and support what they are teaching, but they have NOT used the WHOLE word of Almighty God. What I mean by this is that they have only used a few isolated verses of Scripture, which have been taken out of context and these verses have been misinterpreted or twisted to fit what they are trying to teach. To say this another way, they are reading into the Scriptures what they NEED them to say in order to try and support their theology or man-made teaching. And other Christians merely REPEAT what they have been taught by their pastors without ever going to the word of God for THEMSELVES to see if what they are being taught is the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God.
Now BOTH the Oneness believers and Trinity believes teach the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus, which states that Jesus is FULLY the Almighty God himself in the FLESH being FULLY Almighty God and fully a human being at the SAME time having TWO natures, one DIVINE, and one human. Some add that Jesus also had TWO WILLS as well. 
However, what these two church denominations teach is directly opposite what the other denomination teaches, so it is quite obvious that both denominations cannot be teaching the truth. Therefore some Christians have wrongly concluded that they MUST choose to either be a Oneness believer or they must be a Trinity believer. And I myself, believed for a long time that these were the ONLY two choices except for becoming a Jehovah's Witness or a Morman and I was afraid to even search for myself what they taught because it was made very clear that they were a cult.
Then one day I met a Jehovah's Witness were I worked. Please understand that I am NOT a Jehovah's Witness and know that I will NEVER become a Jehovah's Witness. All I am saying is that I LISTENED to WHY the Jehovah's Witnesses believe what they believe. So at the time, I did not know he was Jehovah's Witness until we actually began to talk about the Bible. At lunch, I would see him reading the Bible and he would see me reading the Bible so I thought he was another Christian like myself. Then one day he asked me who I believed Jesus was? I said Jesus is the Son of God. And he asked me, "You mean that you do not believe that Jesus is Almighty God himself?" And I said No, the Bible does not teach that Jesus is Almighty God himself, but rather teaches us that Jesus is the Son OF God. 
Through our many conversations and observing his LIFE, I could see that he was indeed a Christain who believed a lot of what the Holy Spirit was teaching me concerning Jesus being the Son OF God and the Son of MAN. Please understand that I am NOT saying that the Jehovah's Witnesses are teaching the truth. I myself WARN my readers to NOT become involved with the Jehovah's Witnesses, but not because they deny the doctrine of the Trinity. Please read the study "Is the Jehovah's Witnesses Biblical Christianity?", to understand that what the Jehovah's teach is NOT sound Biblical teaching, but for now, let us continue with this study on Jesus being the Son of MAN before Jesus became the ETERNAL Son of God to rule FOR Almighty God Yahweh in the world to come.

 
Now, I may have lost some of you with what I just said about Jesus being the Son of MAN BEFORE Jesus BECAME the eternal Son of God, but it truth this is exactly what the WHOLE word of God teaches us. Please understand that it is not my intention to be little Jesus in any way, but I believe the church has missed out on a vital TRUTH in God’s word by the teachings that Jesus was a God-man, in that, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man at the same time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human and that Jesus equal with Almighty God the Father in every way where neither the Father nor the Son was greater than or less than the other. WHERE in the Bible itself does it state as a fact that Jesus had TWO natures during the days of his flesh? This teaching of Jesus having TWO natures came into being to TRY and answer the QUESTIONS being asked of HOW the doctrine of the Trinity can be true. Other Christians were asking their Oneness pastor of HOW the doctrine of Oneness can be true when Jesus himself said that he could do NOTHING OF HIMSELF and that it was the Father who DWELT IN him who was do the works.
Please read John 5:30.

I can of mine OWN self do NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine OWN will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.
 
Again I want to stress that in no way do I want to strip or take away any glory or honor that is due to be given to the mighty name of Jesus. Almighty God the Father has HIGHLY EXALTED his Son, but this is another area to study separately in order that you the reader will be able to see the TRUTH to know and truly understand the difference between the one who has been exalted and the ONE who does the exalting. Please start by reading the study "37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!" , which will give you the many of the reason that the Holy Spirit has shown to m personally and has and still IS showing many other Christians as to how Jesus can be called God and still NOT be Almighty God HIMSELF. 
I implore any reader who may be a dogmatic hard core Oneness believer, or a dogmatically demanding hard core Trinitarian that they read these 37 FACTS from the Bible that do not need any interpretation to understand their true mean so that you can see WHY I myself and many other Christians can no longer accept the doctrines of the Trinity, the doctrine of Oneness, or the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus the WAY that these man-made church doctrines are currently being taught in the mainstream church denominations of the Oneness believers and the Trinitarian Christians. I myself and many other Christians like myself truly believe that Jesus is indeed Deity, but NOT in the WAY that the mainstream church denominations teach and dogmatically demand.
 
We believe that there was the ONE God, who alone and by himself having NO one with him at his side, created all things. We believe that the word, which is capitalized in most Bibles as the Word is in truth speaking of the SPOKEN word of THE one true and only Almighty God, which he spoke froth out from his own mouth to create all things. We believe that the SPOKEN word of Almighty God that came forth OUT FROM the God truly and literally became FLESH just like the Bible itself STATES as a FACT in John 1:14 with NO interpretation needed to clearly see that this is WHEN the Son of MAN came into being to be given the NAME Jesus and prophesied to be CALLED the SON OF God. We believe that the Son of MAN was HIGHLY EXALTED by his God and Father the Almighty only AFTER the cross. We believe that the Bible ITSELF teaches us that the Son of MAN then became the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God and Almighty God BECAME his Father for all eternity future.
 
But before a Christians can truly understand that Jesus was truly a human being who was ANOINTED by his God and Father, then we must grasp fully the TRUTH of God’s word that Jesus is NOW the ETERNAL SON OF God. Please read the study "JESUS THE SON OF GOD" if you have not done so already and then come back to this study on "JESUS THE SON OF MAN". Or finish reading this study first and then follow up this study with Jesus being the SON OF Almighty God and "JESUS THE CHRIST", because all three of these studies complement each other to build upon each other and therefore bring forth the WHOLE truth of God's word. Then after reading these three studies, please read the study "WHAT DOES GOD INCARNATE TRULY MEAN?" , which addresses the question of WHO became FLESH. Was it Almighty God himself who became flesh, or was it God the Son, who became flesh. Also please read "WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD'S ETERNAL SON?", but for now, let us continue with this study in God's word to see just how much EMPHASIS that the Bible ITSELF places on Jesus being the Son of MAN.

      You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, what the word of God actually says is that the Word was made FLESH and dwelt among us, as the Son of MAN, born of a woman. And while Jesus was on the earth he was 100% flesh and blood, “a human being”, a man just like you and I, completely void of all divine nature with the exception of the anointing of the Holy Ghost, who DWELT IN him, the SAME Holy Ghost, who dwells in every believer. The only difference is that Jesus did NOT have a HUMAN father, who conceived him in the womb of Mary, but rather Jesus was conceived in the womb of the VIRGIN Mary BY the spoken WORD of Almighty God. Please see the study "DID JESUS HAVE A BEGINNING?" for a deeper understanding of the MIRACULOUS BIRTH of Jesus being born of a VIRGIN woman named Mary.
 
Now before you will be able to come to this knowledge of the truth that Jesus was the Son of MAN first, before Jesus became the ETERNAL Son of God you will need to hear and understand the WHOLE MATTER. In other words, you must hear ALL that I have to say upon this subject and NOT pick and choose only what you want to hear, because of what you have already been TAUGHT by your church denomination. Sometimes we as Christians reject things that are being taught to us by other Christians, which are in fact the TRUTH, but they do not believe it is the truth because of what they have come to believe by or from the previous things which they have been taught. Therefore some Christians automatically reject any new teaching, when it does not agree with what they have been previously taught by their church denomination, as being false simply because it is being taught by someone who is NOT a part of their church denomination. And the reason for this is because some Christians think that they already know the truth and that ONLY THEIR church denomination has the truth.
 However, the truth of the matter is that in some instances we have been deceived by the some of the teachings that we trusted were the truth and therefore some of the teachings that we think or believe to be the truth, are, in fact, FALSE doctrines, like the example I gave, of some churches teaching that the gifts of the Holy Spirit have ceased with the early church and therefore healing is not for today. So in order to come to the full knowledge of TRUTH, we need to lay aside any preconceived ideas that we have come to believe through the years. and study to show ourselves approve unto God by proving God's word of truth for YOURSELF. You have to be like the Christian at Berea who DAILY searched the scriptures for their self in order to see if what they were being taught was indeed the truth.
 
Take a moment right now and think to yourself, "Am I above being able to be DECEIVED?" If you say yes, then you are already deceived. Pride comes before the fall. Have you ever been deceived by ANY false teaching that at one point in time you truly believed what you were being taught was the truth? Most every Christian has experienced at least one teaching that they were taught by their church denomination, but now they no longer believe that teaching. 
The Oneness believers of today must admit that their father who founded the Oneness Pentecostals once believed in the doctrine of the Trinity BEFORE they SPLIT away from the Trinitarian Assembly of God Pentecostals. And they did so because they SAW something in God's word where they could no longer believe in the doctrine of the Trinity where God the Son came down from heaven and it was God the SON who became flesh.
And the Trinity Pentecostals were once taught that the gifts of the Holy Spirit had ceased with the early church, but now they can no longer believe that false teaching that they once believed because that was what they were taught by their church denomination before they SPLIT away to become the Assemblies of God.
The Protestants today came out or split off from the Roman Catholic church to REFORM some of the teachings of the Roman Catholic church that they could NO LONGER accept as being SOUND Biblical teachings
And many Christians like myself are seeing that they did not reform ENOUGH. And just like the early reformers were persecuted and mocked by the Roman Catholic Christians, we who are seeing that MORE reform is needed in more church doctrines are being persecuted and mocked by our fellow brothers and sister in the Lord calling us heretics and even trying to lord over us through INTIMIDATION that we are not truly saved if we reject their church doctrines of Oneness, the Trinity and the Deity of Jesus DURING the days of his FLESH.
 
This study is not intended for you to simply know the truth for truth's sake alone, but so that you will grow in God's grace and strength to overcome the enemy. What I am showing you is not a matter of SALVATION. You KNOW that you are indeed a true born again Christian. Every Oneness believer KNOWS that they are a true Christian. Every Trinity believer KNOW that they are a true Christian, But yet some Christians in both groups try to INTIMIDATE other to believe as they believe by telling them that they are NOT truly saved. I know that you are saved and I know that it is not a matter of salvation if one believes that it was God the Son who became flesh. So I am not teaching this study as a matter of salvation, but rather to HELP you GROW to your FULL potential in the Lord to do the SAME works Jesus did INCLUDING living you life without sin through the power and strength of the eternal Spirit, who is dwelling IN you as a believer in Jesus Christ, the SON OF the living God which is the SAME eternal Spirit who DWELT IN Jesus to be able to do the works men saw the Son of MAN doing for God was WITH him.
You see, when this truth that I am teaching you in this study is fully grasped and held close to your heart it will empower you to live your life completely free from sin just as Jesus lived his life free from sin setting for us an example for us to follow, because you will begin seeing and knowing that Jesus was a man just like you and me, and had no special advantage over us when he lived his life without sin, but rather that Jesus did the mighty works that he did THROUGH the eternal Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father who DWELT IN him, which is the SAME Holy Spirit who DWELLS IN us as Christians. I am getting a little ahead of myself so I want to slow down and show you from God's word what I just said one verse at a time.
 
 So then, let us continue with Philippians 2:6-8  which says,
 
“Christ Jesus who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in the fashion as a man, he humbled himself unto death, even death on the cross”
 
. The words, “no reputation” here means to make empty, to abase, to lower, to neutralize, to make of none effect, void, being without. In other words Jesus, or more precisely the Word, as in, the SPOKEN word that came forth OUT FROM the mouth of Almighty God that was MADE to become FLESH, a human being that was born of a woman, emptied himself of the glory of God, and became the Son of MAN being without any divine power other than the Holy Spirit of his God and Father, the SAME Holy Spirit that is promised to EVERY believer, who DWELT in this human body of Jesus made, formed, fashioned, created and begotten into existence by the spoken Word of Almighty God the Father.
 
In John 17:5 Jesus says to the Father,
 
 
“And now, O Father glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was”.
 
 It is clear from these scriptures that while Jesus was on the earth, he was the Son of MAN being without, and completely void of the glory that he HAD once previously shared with the Father before the world was created, or more precisely, before Jesus as the Word was born of a woman and became flesh and blood just as you and me.
But Trinitarians INTERPRET John 17:5 as Jesus pre-existing WITH the God at his side in all eternity past as God the Son who has always been EQUAL with God the Father and COETERNAL with the eternal Spirit. Please read the study "DOES JOHN 17:5 TEACH THAT JESUS PRE-EXISTED?" for an in-depth study of this verse being interpreted in the light of the WHOLE word of Almighty God, but for now please know that there is more than just the one INTERPRETATION of what Jesus himself INTENDED his words to mean in John 17:5.
 
Let’s read Philippians 2:6-8 from a few other translations so that you can clearly see this TRUTH for yourself that the FORM Jesus pre-existed in was indeed the divine eternal Spirit, but then that divine eternal Spirit SPRIPPED himself of ALL his divine nature to take on HUMAN NATURE just like John 1:14 plainly states as a FACT. the word was MADE FLESH. So then, the word WAS with God, and then God spoke forth his word out from himself and his spoken word BECAME flesh. Jesus said that he came OUT FROM God. Jesus understood that he was NOT the FATHER and that he came into existence by the SPOKEN word that came forth OUT FROM the God.
 The Phillips' Modern English says,
 
 
For he (speaking of Jesus who the Apostles knew once pre-existed in the FORM OF God, which they teach us in John 1:1 being the SPOKEN word that was WITHIN the God in the beginning and the Word, as in, the SPOKE word, was made FLESH; So then it was yet UNSPOKEN word that was WITHIN the God being in the form of an IMAGE within the God) who had always been God BY nature (And it was the divine living word within the God, Spirit is SPIRIT, the ONE eternal Spirit who), did not cling to his privileges as God’s equal, but (he, the spoken WORD that came forth out from the God to be made FLESH) stripped himself of every advantage by consenting to be a slave by nature and being born a MAN. And plainly seen as a HUMAN BEING, he humbled himself (even further) by living a life of utter obedience to the point of death”.
 
 
The word of God teaches us here that Jesus or more precisely the spoken WORD of Almighty God the Father that was WITHIN the very being of the ONE God being FORMED in the mind of God of what God himself desired to BE stripped himself of every advantage. In other words, Almighty God HIMSELF, design, FORMED, imagined within himself his PLAN of salvation down to the very last detail before the foundation of the earth. And ONE of those DETAILS that God FORM as an IMAGE within himself was for a MAN, who was like every other human being having NO advantage over them, to live his life before his God WITHOUT sin to become an EXAMPLE for whosoever of all the humans, who would believe on this MAN, Jesus the Christ, could ALSO follow in his steps to live THEIR lives without sin as well. 
Jesus or the spoken divine living word of God became a MAN in order to become EQUAL with MANKIND for the purpose of overcoming the enemy as a MAN, a HUMAN BEING just like you and me, in order to show us the WAY. Jesus set before us the example of HOW we too may ALSO live our lives free from sin and overcome the enemy in every area of our lives BY IMAGE within the God becoming a man himself to show us that it is possible to live our lives without sin and ALSO do the SAME works of healing, casting out devils and even raising the dead that Jesus did THROUGH Almighty God the Father who DWELT IN the MAN Jesus.
The IMAGE or the words that Almighty God developed, formed or imprinted as a blueprint having the DNA of what the word would BECOME was what the word BECAME. And in this instance, the word within the God was a PERSON, a HUMAN being and NOT a God man being fully the Almighty God and a human being at the SAME time having TWO natures, one divine and one human as some Christians INTERPRET the word made FLESH to mean in their OWN eyes. That is NOT the IMAGE that God himself had in his mind for the Son of MAN to be. I mean WHAT di Almighty God HIMSELF SPEAK in his word of PROPHECY. Do you read from the Bible ITSELF anywhere a prophecy of a God-man being foretold to come? No, you do not and that is because Jesus was NOT fully Almighty God himself in the flesh having TWO natures, one divine, and one human during the days of his FLESH.
You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, IF Jesus lived his life WITHOUT SIN being FULLY Almighty God himself, as in, one and the self-same being as Almighty God in the FLESH, then Jesus showed us NOTHING because how can a HUMAN BEING follow an EXAMPLE set for us to FOLLOW, if so be, that EXAMPLE was made by ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF.
 Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord that IF this was truly HOW Jesus OVERCAME sin, by being FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF in the FLESH as some church denominations teach, then how can we as mere mortal men and women even think that we can follow the EXAMPLE set by Jesus to live our lives without sin? This is WHY some Christians then say things like, 'Well ONLY Jesus could ever live WITHOUT SIN, we are ONLY HUMAN and it is our human NATURE to sin". Can you not see that believing this false teaching that Jesus was FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF in the flesh and therefore falsely concluding that because we are only HUMAN, then it is impossible for us to follow the EXAMPLE that Jesus set for us to follow puts ALL the BLAME on Almighty God by ACCUSING God that he MADE us with this so called SINFUL HUMAN NATURE.
Hebrews 4:15 teaches us that Jesus was tempted in all points LIKE we are, yet without sin. This means that Jesus did not have any special advantages over us in resisting sin, like being FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF in the FLESH. Again I want to point out and emphasize that the same Holy Spirit that Jesus was ANOINTED with by Almighty God is the same Holy Spirit that God the Father has sent to be OUR comforter and OUR helper who DWELLS IN us as Christians. 
Let me just briefly say here that every person who is truly a born again Christians has the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN them, but I also want to make it perfectly clear to my readers that there is also the receiving of the FULLNESS of the Holy Spirit, sometimes called being baptized in the Holy Spirit. For a deeper understanding of being FILLED with the FULNESS and JOY of the Holy Spirit please read the study called "THE POWER AND THE AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER!" and "STIR UP THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU!", but for now let us continue with this study to learn that Jesus lived his life without sin, and we ought to be living our lives without sin as well because he is our EXAMPLE that we are CALLED to follow.
 Look at 1 Peter 2:21, which clearly and plainly teaches that Jesus set an EXAMPLE of living without sin for us to FOLLOW in his steps and live our lives without sin as well.
1 Peter 2:21.
 
“For even hereunto were you called because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should FOLLOW his steps”.
 
 So what example did Jesus leave us to follow? The answer is in the very next verse,
1 Peter 2:22.
 
“Who did NO SIN neither was guile found in his mouth”.
 
 
Are you seeing it yet? Through the teaching that Jesus was 100% God and 100% man while he was on the earth has consequently led the church to believe that Jesus was, is, and ever shall be the ONLY man to be ABLE live without sin, BECAUSE supposedly according to the doctrine of Oneness, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus DURING the days of his FLESH, Jesus was a GOD-man, being FULLY Almighty God HIMSELF and man at the SAME time, which is totally contrary to what the Bible actually teaches. This type of false teaching disarms the believer and keeps Christians from overcoming the enemy BECAUSE they WRONGLY see Jesus as the ONLY one ever capable of living a life WITHOUT SIN.
Again, I fully realize the TRUTH, that we all have sinned at one time or another and therefore we all have fallen short of the glory of God. However, I am speaking of living a sin free life after being redeemed from sin by the blood of Jesus, and being placed BACK into right relationship with Almighty God, and being filled with the Holy Spirit or ANOINTED with the SAME Holy Spirit that Jesus himself was ANOINTED with by his God and Father, the one true and only Almighty God to EMPOWER the Son of MAN to live his life without sin and do the works that men saw him doing not because Jesus was God himself, but rather because God was WITH the Son of MAN.
 
Now look at this same verse we read earlier from Philippians 2:6-8 from the Jerusalem Bible, which says,
 
 “His state was divine yet he did NOT CLING to his equality with God, but he emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave and became as men are, AND BEING AS ALL MEN ARE, he was humble yet even to accepting death on the cross”.
 

Notice that Jesus or again more precisely the living spoken word of Almighty God, which is SPIRIT, EMPTIED himself of all divine nature in order to BECOME as ALL men ARE. I mean name one human who lived BEFORE the word became FLESH, who had TWO natures, one divine, and one human.  You cannot do so because that is not how God created mankind at the beginning. So the HOW that man or human beings ARE is that we are VOID of ANY divine eternal NATURE. And the Bible itself says that the FORM that Jesus pre existed AS, before that FORM became flesh, that the FORM was indeed DIVINE, but then that FORM emptied himself and BECAME as ALL men ARE.
Jesus was a MAN, a HUMAN BEING just as ALL men ARE. Jesus was a MAN a HUMAN BEING just like you and me in every way in that he did NOT have any advantage over us when he lived his life without sin. 
Jesus was ANOINTED by his God and Father and we, as Christians, are ANOINTED by our God and Father. Jesus has the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN Him and we have the SAME Holy Spirit dwelling IN us. Again please do NOT misunderstand what I am saying. As I said before I do fully realize that Jesus did NOT have an earthly father as ALL the rest of mankind and that the HUMAN BIRTH of Jesus was indeed a MIRACULOUS birth like no other human ever born. But please know and understand that OTHER portions of God's word clearly and plainly teach us that Jesus is NOT the one true and only ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF who alone is the FATHER.
Think about this for a moment, if Jesus truly was Almighty God HIMSELF, as some falsely teach that the Word that was made to become flesh means, then Jesus would have had an ADVANTAGE OVER us when he was tempted. Jesus would have been a God man as opposed to the Son of MAN who was ANOINTED with power from on high. And IF SO BE that Jesus was truly  Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, then Jesus could NOT have been tempted in all point LIKE we as mere human beings are being tempted. In fact, Jesus could NOT have been truly tempted at all, if so be, that the Oneness doctrine, the Trinity doctrine and the doctrine of the Deity of DURING the days of his FLESH were true because God himself cannot be TEMPTED.
And please do not continue to reason away the TRUTH by CLAIMING the man-made doctrine of Jesus supposedly having TWO natures and TWO will, because there is NOT one single verse in the entire Bible that teaches this without bias INTERPRETATION and the twisting of the Scriptures. But there are MANY verses that state a FACT that Jesus was a MAN who was ANOINTED by his God and Father and that God was WITH the Son of MAN. 
You see dear child of God, the TRUTH of the matter is that Almighty God himself CANNOT be tempted with evil and yet the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus, the Son of MAN, was indeed TEMPTED in all points LIKE or in the SAME way that WE as human beings are tempted, but yet Jesus, the Son of MAN, did not give into any temptation to sin as an EXAMPLE for US to FOLLOW.
 THEREFORE if the teaching that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, being FULLY Almighty God in the FLESH and EQUAL with Almighty God the Father in every way, IF this teaching were in fact true, then the word of God is found to be a lie by CONTRADICTING itself, because Almighty God CANNOT be tempted with evil. The Bible also plainly teaches us with NO interpretation needed that God is NOT a MAN and neither is God the son OF man or the son of a HUMAN being. Clearly, Jesus was first the son of a HUMAN being, unless the Virgin Mary was NOT truly a human being. My point is that the prophecy in Isaiah says that a CHILD would be born and then a son would be given. So plain common sense should tell us that the Son of MAn came FIRST, and then the Son of MAN, Jesus, was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit at his baptism to empower the Son of MAN to do the will of his God and Father. And surely the Son of MAN was highly exalted only AFTER the cross by his God and Father to be GIVEN immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always had immortality in himself being the Eternal Spirit.
 So then once again, if Jesus is truly Almighty God in the flesh as some falsely teach, then it would have been impossible for Jesus to be tempted in all points like as we are because God CANNOT be tempted with evil. And if Jesus truly lived his life without sin as being Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh as some falsely teach, then it would be impossible for us as mere human beings to FOLLOW the EXAMPLE of living WITHOUT sin that Jesus left for us to FOLLOW.
You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, we have NOT been taught the WHOLE truth by those who have taught us that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, to REMAIN to be the FULLY divine ETERNAL Almighty God in the FLESH and therefore EQUAL with Almighty God his God and Father in EVERY way where neither is GREATER than or less than the other. Please read ALL the studies related to the teaching of the doctrine of the Trinity for a deeper understanding of why the doctrine of the Trinity is not a SOUND BIBLICAL teaching based upon the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And in those teachings, I also show WHY the doctrine of Oneness is NOT a sound Biblical teaching.
The TRUE teaching of the WHOLE word of God comes from taking what is TRUE form the doctrine of Oneness and the doctrine of the Trinity and leaving BEHIND what is FALSE that is contained in these two mainstream church doctrine.
For example, no dogmatic demanding Trinitarian will accept any of what Oneness believer teach because they see Oneness believers as teaching false doctrine. And the reason of WHY Trinitarians see that Oneness believer are false teachers is because Trinitarian CLEARLY see directly from Gods word that Jesus is a DISTINCT and SEPARATE person from the FATHER.
And on the other side of the coin, the no dogmatic demanding Oneness believer will accept any of what Trinitarians teach because they see Trinitarians as being false teachers. And one of the reasons is that the Oneness believers are seeing directly from God's word that it was Almighty God HIMSELF who became flesh and NOT some so called SEPARATE person of some so called three persons in the one God became flesh. They see that God HIMSELF manifested HIMSELF in the flesh.
The TRUTH of the whole matter is BOTH sides are correct in what they are seeing directly from God's word.
So then, if we take what is the TRUTH for BOTH side and throw the rest away here is what we have. We have PART of what the Oneness believers teach that it was indeed Almighty God HIMSELF who BECOMES what he creates by his SPOKE word that comes forth OUT FROM his own mouth. Please see the study called "DID GOD CREATE ALL THINGS OUT OF NOTHING?", which addressing the controversy between Christians, who believe that God creates all thing OUT FROM HIMSELF being the eternal INVISIBLE Spirit who is NO SEEN as opposed to God creating all things out of absolutely nothing, but for now, let us stay focused on what I am teaching you right now about keep what is truth and discarding the rest.
First of all, I am NOT saying for Trinitarians to convert to Oneness theology and I am NOT saying for Oneness believers to convert and become Trinitarians.
But what I am saying is to KEEP what is the truth from BOTH sides and throw the rest away. And what the Holy Spirit has shown me and has and is still yet showing many other Christians that it was indeed Almighty God himself who became a human being, but NOT in the way that the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus teaches. But rather the spoken word, which is the divine eternal Spirit, BECAME FLESH by stripping himself of ALL his divine eternal NATURE to take on HUMAN mortal nature having NO advantage over any other human being to be made to become fully as we ARE, as in, mere mortal humans.
Now throw away the false teaching of Oneness believer who wrongly teaches that Jesus is NOT a SEPARATE distinct person from the Father to teach what the Bible itself clearly teaches, which is that Jesus is NOT the FATHER. In other words, Oneness believers need to stop reasoning away that Jesus is a separate person from the Father and the Trinitarians need to embrace the TRUTH that it was NOT a preexistent SEPRARATE person who was with the God at his side that God the Father sent down from heaven to manifest himself into a human being and REMAIN the fully divine eternal Son of God who was equal with the Father in every way where neither is greater than or less than the other.
In other words, BOTH Oneness believers AND Trinitarians need to at least TRY to see that God in the Old Testament was ONE God, as in, ONE single being in person, who has ONLY manifested himself thus far before the spoken word was made to become flesh, through his SPOKEN word that he spoke to his prophets of old. And it was ONLY in the LAST days that God spoke to us through his SON AFTER his spoken word was CONCEIVED in the womb of the Virgin Mary to be born of a woman, a human being to become the Son of MAN.
Now Jesus was taught by the Holy Spirit being WITH him like every other prophet of old and the Holy Spirit did not come and remain on him by dwelling in the Son of MAN until the baptism of Jesus. This is WHEN Jesus began to become famous of great among men where he began to be called the Son of God. The angel Gabriel prophesied to the Virgin Mary that the Holy Thing conceived in her womb would become great and be CALLED the Son of God.
Please read Luke 1:30-35.

     And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favor with God.
     31. And, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a SON (not you shall bring forth God the Son, or the Son of God, or a God man who will be both God and and man at the same time having two nature, one the diven eternal nature and one hiuman nature. But rather the angel Gabriel speaking the words of Yahweh himself said that Mary would bring forth a SON) and shalt call his name JESUS. (which means the salvation OF Yahweh, as in, God will USE this chosen vessel as a means by which Almighty God himself has chosen to save mankind.)
    32. He shall be great, (or you SON shall become great and known by all of mankind) and SHALL BE called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (this agrees with the prophecy in Isaiah that foretold that a CHILD would be born of a Virgin and THEN AFTER the CHILD was BORN of a woman, THEN a SON would be GIVEN. But again Isaiah does not state as a fact that the SON who would be given is the Son OF God. Is simple says that a SON would be given. So to many Christians like myself, we see that it was the Son of MAN who was given and then the Son of MAN was rewarded for his obedience to do all of his God's will to partake of the divine nature of immortality, and ALSO to be HGHLY EXALTED above his fellows to receive all power and authority to rul FOR Yahweh in the world to come sitting at the right hand of his God and Father on his Father's throne. We will get to some of this further on in the study of God's word, but for now I want you to see that it was prophesied that the Son of MAN would be called the Son of God when he began to become famous, which was at the time when Jesus began his ministry.)
      33. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (not yet fulfilled and is still yet future)
      34. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
      35. And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of you SHALL BE called the Son of God.” 

 
 
Again we will cover this truth of a CHILD being born FIRST and then a SON was given, which teaches us how the spoken word FIRST became the Son of MAN before the spoken word became the ETERNAL Son of God in more detail further on in this study, but for now, I want to support with Scripture what I said earlier about Jesus being tempted proves that Jesus was NOT Almighty God himself because God can NOT be tempted. Please read James 1:13 which CLEARLY and PLAINLY shows us that it is IMPOSSIBLE for Almighty God to be TEMPTED with evil.
James 1:13.
 
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God CANNOT be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man.” 
 

You see, Jesus could not truly know our feelings, when we are tempted if he truly was, as some falsely teach, to be God, FULLY GOD and man at the same time, because this false teaching would also make Hebrews 4:15 a lie, which tells us that Jesus was tempted in ALL points LIKE we are. But we know from Hebrews 6:18 that it is IMPOSSIBLE for God to lie. So since we know that God's word is TRUTH and is no lie we can be confident that God's word will never CONTRADICT itself and it is only the INTERPRETATIONS of man-made teaching that contradict other parts of God's word.
Therefore we can be assured that Hebrews 2:14,18 is the TRUTH of God's word when it tells us that the word made FLESH did, in fact, become flesh and blood in every respect just like we are and that he suffered being TEMPTED to sin in the same way that all human beings are tempted to sin.
 
“… For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also likewise took part of the SAME (flesh and blood nature): that through death he might destroy him that had power of death, that is the devil....... For in that he himself suffered BEING TEMPTED he is able to succor them that are tempted.”
 

In other words, this Hebrews 2:14,18 are teaching us that Jesus was TRULY a HUMAN being. The Apostles of Jesus understood and taught that the MAN Jesus was NOT a God-man having TWO natures. Thys understood that the spoken word of Almighty God was within the God as being the ONE being of God and NOT a separate person who was with the God at his side. The disciples of Jesus understood that the spoken words of God are SPIRIT, who is LIVING and the SOURCE of all life who makes alive and creates all things. So then, BEFORE the word was made to become flesh void of all its divine immortal nature to take on human nature to BECOME a SEPARATE DISTINCT PERSON from the FATHER, the word was WITHING the ONE BEING of the eternal Spirit. There was NO Father and the was NO Son. There was only the ONE God, the ETERNAL SPIRIT. And in truth on a deeper level there was no spoken word, but rather there was only ETERNAL always self-existing Spirit with his OWN yet unspoken THOUGHTS and imaginations WITHIN HIMSELF.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the Christ, that since that word of truth clearly teaches us that Jesus HIMSELF suffered being TEMPTED, then he could not have been Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, being the divine eternal Almighty God, because this would contradict the WHOLE word of God. This verse CLEARLY says that HE took part of the SAME flesh and blood nature as we have. Jesus did not have any advantage over us by supposedly being Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh. I do not know about you, but this encourages and strengthens me to live my life without sin just as Jesus left us this example to follow.
The word “succor” means to aid, relieve or help. Again, I do not know about you, but it helps me by knowing that Jesus did not have any advantage over me when he was tempted. When I am tempted it succors or helps me to know that we have a high priest, which was touched with the feelings of our infirmities or weaknesses of the flesh, and who was in ALL POINTS TEMPTED like as we are, yet without sin. Please see Hebrews 5:14.
 
Knowing that Jesus was a man just like me and that he was able to live his life without sin gives me the strength to live my life also without sin. If Jesus can do it, then so can I, seeing that Jesus is my example, my pattern to follow. Make it personal. Say to yourself, Jesus is MY example. You see, Jesus showed us that it IS POSSIBLE to live our lives without sin. But how did Jesus show us that WE can live without sin? BY truly BEING a MAN, a human being, just as we are and living his life free from sin THROUGH the power of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father, the SAME Holy Spirit that is dwelling IN EVERY believer. Now all believers may not have been baptized with the Holy Spirit, which is to be FILLED to overflowing with the Holy Spirit. The evidence that a believer has been filled to an overflowing fullness of the Holy Spirit is the evidence of speaking in other tongues to magnify God with your whole being with JOY unspeakable and full of glory. 
You will not be able to develop this attitude of being EMPOWERED by the Holy Spirit dwelling IN you to live your life without sin and do the works mean saw Jesus doing through the eternal Spirit dwelling in him, until you truly KNOW that Jesus was FULLY a human being having NO divine nature DURING the days of his flesh. THEN your attitude toward sin will become “if Jesus was able to live totally free from sin then so can I!”. But as long as you hold on to the false teaching that Jesus is “Almighty God in the flesh” having two natures the devil will steal that truth from you that YOU CAN live without sin just as Jesus lived his life without sin as the EXAMPLE for YOU to follow.  You will never TRULY see that Jesus is the Son of MAN, a HUMAN BEING like you and I. if you continue to cling to the false teaching that Jesus is FULLY Almighty God and FULLY a man at the SAME time having TWO natures, one divine. and one human. WHERE are the verses that teach that man-made doctrine that was created to explain AWAY the clear plain and simple verses that do not need any interpretation to understand what they mean. Again please read the study "37 FACTS ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!" for those SIMPLE plain verses that expose the errors of interpretation of the doctrine of Oneness, the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus DURING the days of his FLESH.
You see, the only true way for Jesus to be tempted as we are, was for the word to literally and totally become as we are; that is to say, to become a MAN, a human being, 100% flesh and blood, as we are because Almighty God cannot be tempted. Please see James 1:13. And again the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus was indeed TEMPTED in all points LIKE we as human beings are TEMPTED.
 Do not continue to try and REASON away the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God by believing the man-made false teaching that CLAIMS that it was only the HUMAN SIDE of Jesus that was actually tempted and the God side of Jesus was not actually tempted. What passage of SCRIPTURE is there to base this man-made REASONING upon? There is no such passage of Scripture to teach that Jesus was FULLY Almighty God and yet FULLY a human being at the SAME time. There is NO passage of Scripture to teach that Jesus is EQUAL with Almighty God the Father in every way where neither is greater than or less than the other because BOTH are FULLY and completely ALMIGHTY God, as in, ONE and the self-same being. But the are Scriptures that teach us that the word stripped itself of all its divine nature to take on human nature.
The TRUTH of the matter is that the WORD that was God was MADE to BECOME a flesh and blood body for the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father to DWELL IN to EMPOWER his Son Jesus to do the WORKS that his God and Father sent his Word to do. NOT a Spirit being who was with the God at his side who the God sent down from heaven, but rather the SPOKE word coming out from the mouth of the God being sent down from heaven by way of the angel Gabriel and the spoken living word BECAME FLESH.
 
Galatians 4:4 tells us,
 
 
“But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law. To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoptions of sons”.
 

Almighty God HIMSELF needs NO law to show him right from wrong for in HIM, in Almighty God the Father is NO darkness whatsoever. Almighty God the Father cannot and will not ever SIN. This is why it is not possible for Almighty God HIMSELF to be TEMPTED with evil
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ how vitally important it is for us as Christians to fully come to realize the necessity that the spoken WORD of Almighty God that came forth OUT FROM the mouth of the eternal Spirit BECAME the Son of MAN, leaving behind his or its mighty power and glory in order to FULLY partake of a flesh and blood nature, and become 100% MAN just as you and I, in order to be TEMPTED in all points LIKE every other HUMAN BEING clearly seeing from God's word that Almighty God HIMSELF cannot be TEMPTED with evil.
John 1:14 says,
 
“…and the Word was MADE flesh and dwelt among us.”
 

Please note that the word of God does NOT say that JESUS was made flesh, nor does it say that Almighty God HIMSELF was made flesh and REMAINED the fully divine God, but rather the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible itself, merely states as a FACT that the WORD was made flesh. For a deeper understand of what this passage of scripture in John chapter 1 verses 1 -14 truly means in the light of the whole word of God please read "John 1:1- THE WORD WAS GOD!", but for now I want you to ask yourself the question:

Who would know more if Jesus was Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, or if Jesus was the Son of MAN more than Jesus himself?
 
So then, let us take a look at what Jesus himself says about himself. Jesus refers to himself eighty-three times in the four gospels as being the Son of MAN. Even when Nathanael called Jesus the SON of God, Jesus turned it around and referred to himself as the Son of MAN. Read this account for yourself in John 1:45-49.
 
In Matthew 16:13 Jesus asked his disciples,
 
 “Whom do men say that I the Son of MAN am?
 
The word of God seems to go out of its way in order to emphasize the FACT that Jesus is the Son of MAN. Now the phrase "son of man" is 197 times in the Bible, but when this phrase is found in the Old Testament, then we must interpret it as being a shadow, type or figure pointing to Jesus. But in the New Testament Jesus, HIMSELF, personally referred to himself 83 times as being the Son of MAN in the four gospels. Compare this to the number of times the phrase “the Son of God” is found in the four gospels, which is only 26 times. The phrase the "Son of God" is only found 48 times in the ENTIRE Bible. And of all 48 time Jesus HIMSELF only refers to himself as the Son of God 5 times. Also, there are times when others called Jesus the Son of God and Jesus turned it back around to call HIMSELF the Son of MAN.
Please read Matthew 26:63,64.
   
     
But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure you by the living God, that you tell us whether you be the Christ, the Son of God.
     64. Jesus said unto him, You have said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall you see the Son of MAN sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven

Even at the return of Jesus he still refers to himself and still yet being the Son of MAN. I believe that Jesus does this to show us that he does not actually take to THRONE of Almighty to God to rule and reign FOR Yahweh in the world to come until after the WRATH of God has been poured out AT the second coming of Jesus. 
Also please read Luke 22:7 along with John 1:49-51 where Jesus is asked and is called the Son of God, but then Jesus turns it back around and specifically calls HIMSELF the Son of MAN.

Then said they all, Are you then the Son of God? And he said unto them, YOU say that I am.

John 1:49-51.

Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel. 
50. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto you, I saw you under the fig tree, believe you (or you believe that I am the one prophesied to come as the King of Israel who would be called God's Son simply because I saw you under the fig tree)? you shall see greater things than these. 
51.  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of MAN.


So it seems to me, that Jesus wants us to KNOW that he was the Son of MAN. FIRST before the Son of MAN was highly exalted to BECOME the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God to rule FOR his God and father for 1000 years in the world to come. Again please understand that I am in no way inferring that Jesus is not the Son of God. The Bible emphatically teaches that Jesus would be called the SON OF the Most High and living God, to this TRUTH there is absolutely no doubt. However being a SON of God does NOT make Jesus to BE Almighty God HIMSELF, or even EQUAL with Almighty God, or to being one and the self-same being as God the Father. 
The word of God teaches that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father and that the Word that was WITH God and was God was MADE to BECOME flesh. So let us NOT read into the word of Almighty God more than what it is teaching us in simplicity.
Therefore since the Bible itself states as a FACT that the word was made FLESH, then the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible itself clearly teaches us that the spoken WORD of Almighty God BECAME the Son of MAN. as opposed to the INTERPRETED version that the word was made  GOD/flesh having TWO natures at the SAME time.
 
In the entire New Testament, according to the E-Sword concordance, the phrase “Son of Man” occurs 89 times, and the phrase “the Son of God” is found only 48 times, just a little over half as many times as the phrase “Son of Man” is found.  So then, Jesus himself places nearly TWICE as much emphasis on himself being the Son of MAN, when he personally refers to himself 83 times as being the Son of MAN. Now compare this to his disciples, the Jews, worldly men and Satan, where at times, some are questioning if Jesus was the Son of God and at other times some are indeed saying that Jesus was the Son of God. Again, please understand that I am NOT belittling that FACT that Jesus IS the SON of God because the Bible does, in fact, teach that Jesus is the SON of Almighty God his God and Father. 
All I am trying to point out to my readers is that Jesus personally spoke of himself as being the Son of MAN 83 times compared to the 5 times that he referred to himself as being the Son of God using the specific phrase "I am the Son of God". And I myself find this fact very interesting that the Bible places MORE emphasis on the fact of Jesus being the Son of MAN, rather than on him being the SON OF God. Obviously, the Bible clearly teaches us that Jesus is BOTH the Son of MAN and the Son of God, but to ME, it seems as if God desires for us to see the IMPORTANCE of Jesus being the Son of MAN, who could do NOTHING OF himself and that it was almighty God the Father who DWELT IN him who was the one doing the works of healing, casting out devils, and raising the dead. This is WHY Jesus told us that we, as believers, who have the SAME eternal Spirit, dwelling in us, shall do the SAME works that he did through the eternal Spirit dwelling in him. 
Now while the Bible itself does clearly teach us that Jesus IS the SON OF God, and also that Jesus is the Son of MAN this does NOT mean that Jesus had TWO natures at the SAME time during the days of his flesh. Yes, Jesus did indeed teach us that he was the SON OF God by calling Almighty God his FATHER many times. However, on the other side of the coin, you will NOT find even ONE, no not even one verse of scripture that plainly states as fact with no interpretation needed that Jesus IS the Almighty God HIMSELF or that Jesus is Almighty God in the flesh. You will not find even one verse of scripture where Jesus makes that claim that he is EQUAL with Almighty God the Father.
 
As I said before, those that teach that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF use a few isolated scriptures to try and support what they teach, but their INTERPRETATION of those verses CONTRADICT the WHOLE word of God. What I mean by this in there are many verses in the Bible that STATE in clear, plain, and simple words that do NOT need any interpretation to see what they are teaching us in simplicity.
I deal with those verses that are INTERPRETED to teach that Jesus is FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF in the flesh in some of other studies such as "IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?",  "THERE IS BUT ONE GOD", "JESUS THE CHRIST", and "THE DEITY OF JESUS AND THE TRINITY", "IS JESUS THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY?", and "WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD'S ETERNAL SON?". Please follow up this study by reading these other in-depth studies in the word of God if you are still in doubt that Jesus was the Son of MAN before the Son of MAN, then BECAME the ETERNAL SON OF God AFTER the cross as the WHOLE word of God clearly and plainly teaches us. 
 
For you see, if Christians continue to ignore the scriptures that plainly show that Jesus was the Son of MAN while he was on the earth, and they keep insisting and DOGMATICALLY DEMANDING that Jesus was able to do the miracles that he did because he was FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF in the flesh, being FULLY Almighty GOD and yet still fully man at the SAME time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human, then those Christians are antichrists according to the Bible. They are in fact denying the doctrine of Christ that teaches us that Jesus was ANOINT with the Holy Spirit dwelling in him who was the one doing the works men saw Jesus doing. These are not my words, but they are what very word of God clearly teaches us in simplicity. 
 
Look at 1 John 4:1-3
 
 
Beloved believe not every spirit, (or every Bible teacher that you hear) but try the spirits (or teachings which you have heard) whether they are of God, (why?) because many FALSE prophets are gone into the world. Hereby know you the Spirit of God (or here is how we can truly know the TRUTH of God's word that is taught to us BY the Holy Spirit). Every spirit that confesses Jesus is come in the FLESH is of God. (In other words, every Christian, who confesses that Jesus is a mortal MAN, a HUMAN being that did NOT have ANY divine nature, then they are OF God and speak the TRUTH) And every spirit that confesses NOT that Jesus is come in the flesh is NOT of God, and this ( or this anti Christ teaching that Jesus is NOT FULLY and COMPLETELY a MAN, who has NO divine nature, then their teaching) is the spirit of antichrist.
 

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, that holding on to this doctrine that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh and that Jesus is 100% God and yet 100% man at the same time having TWO natures is in all actuality saying that the spoken word of God did not truly become FLESH, and this FALSE teaching is antichrist and is NOT of God? It is anti ANOINTING. If Jesus or more precisely if the WORD that was made to become FLESH maintained even 1/100th of a percent of deity or his divine nature when the spoken Word became a human being to dwell among men on the earth, then he, speaking of the WORD, did not truly and FULLY come in the flesh and therefore this teaching would NOT be of God and therefore is an ANTICHRIST teaching as the above verse plainly states.
In other words, do not just blindly believe every thing that you are taught, but search the Scriptures daily to prove for yourself those things which you are taught are in fact the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God.
You see, teaching that Jesus is Almighty God while he was on the earth is the same as saying that Jesus did NOT come in the flesh, and therefore is an antichrist teaching. This antichrist teaching that Jesus was FULLY Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh has deceived the church and has kept believers from living their FULL potential, which is to live their lives free from sin and to do the works of Jesus and even greater works. For a deeper understanding on this subject please read the studies titled "JESUS THE CHRIST!",  "HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE FREE FROM SIN" and "THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER"
 2 John 7 says it this way,
 
 
“For many DECEIVERS are entered into the world, who confess NOT that Jesus is come in the FLESH. This is a DECEIVER and an ANTICHRIST.”
 
 
Either the spoken word of Almighty God that came forth out from the mouth of the God BECAME FLESH to become 100% a mortal human man, who was given the name Jesus, who was tempted in all points as we are, or John 1:14 is a lie. Again you must fully realize that IF Jesus was even 1/100 of a percent Almighty God while he was on the earth, then this would mean that Jesus, preexisting in the FORM of the word that was within the God which the eternal Spirit spoke forth OUT FROM himself or who came forth OUT FROM God to be conceived in the womb of the virgin Mary by the spoken word of God did not come totally and COMPLETELY in the FLESH and become a MAN just as we are, and therefore Jesus would have then had an advantage over us, and thereby would not have been tempted in all points like as we are tempted, because Jesus or the Word made flesh would still have had his divine nature and would have been FULLY Almighty God that only APPEARED to be FLESH or SEEM to be a human being. 
Therefore, if a Christian says that Jesus was NOT FULLY flesh, where the word made to become FLESH, laid aside 100% of his or its DIVINE nature to take on 100% HUMAN nature, and every advantage, then he or she is an ANTICHRIST. Not because I say this, but because the word of God clearly and plainly declares it to be so. There was no person, who was with the God at his side name Jesus called God the Son who was equal with the God in every way that was sent down from heaven to become flesh. The Bible itself does not teach this, but rather the Bible teaches us that the eternal Spirit Yahweh SPOKE his word and that spoke word was sent down from Heaven by way to the angel Gabriel to become FLESH. The TRUTH of the matter is that Jesus is the Son OF Almighty God and NOT Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh as the doctrines of Oneness and the Trinity wrongly teach. You see dear child of God IF Almighty God did NOT lay aside his DIVINE nature to take on HUMAN nature like Philippians 2:5-11 clearly teaches us, that that would CONTRADICT the clear, plain and simple word of God that states as a FACT without any interpretation needed that God is NOT a MAN and neither is God the Son of MAN.

Please read Numbers 23:19.

God is NOT a MAN, that he should lie; neither the son of MAN, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?


The Bible states as a FACT that the Word was MADE FLESH and dwelt among us. And this statement of FACT has been twisted and INTERPRETED to mean that the word was made flesh, BUT yet REMAINED fully Almighty God HIMSELF at the SAME time having TWO natures, one DIVINE, and one human where the DIVINE nature is EXALTED so high that it distorts the truth of the whole word of Almighty God.

What came down from heaven was the SPOKEN word of Almighty God. The word of logos of God came down from heaven FIRST as PROPHECY, which was written down by men of old, who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down God's spoken word. Then in the fullness of time, God sent down his word by his angel Gabriel, who spoke the WORD of God to the Virgin Mary and then Mary agreed for God's word to be done unto her as God desire and then the spoken WORD was conceived in the womb of Mary and then the spoken WORD of God became the Son of MAN by being BORN of a woman, to take the nature of flesh and blood

Hebrews 5:7 calls this time period that Jesus spent in the earth as the days of his FLESH. Yes, the word of TRUTH teaches us that Almighty God the Father sent his WORD down to the earth, and it was that spoken word that came out from God that BECAME flesh to be called the only begotten Son. Then when Jesus was baptized or ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit when he was baptized in water by John the Baptist, Almighty God the Father sent his Son Jesus out into the world. The Bible says that HE speaking of or referring to Jesus as the WORD, stripped himself of his divine nature, and became flesh and blood, the Son of MAN.

 Are you seeing this truth of God's word yet? The scriptures therefore clearly teach that Jesus was 100% flesh and blood while he was on the earth. So now all that remains is to answer the question, “How did Jesus do the miracles and live a sinless life while he was on the earth?” clearly seeing that Jesus was 100% fully a man, a human being like you and me. We now know based on a solid scriptural foundation that without a doubt that Jesus did not accomplish these things as being God, as in, Jesus being FULLY Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh during his earthly ministry. Nor did Jesus have an advantage over us as being the Son OF God. So then, HOW did Jesus do the miracles, and live his life without sin clearly seeing and now knowing that Jesus was only a mere man just as you and I are ONLY HUMAN?

To answer this question let’s begin with John 5:19 where Jesus says,
 
The Son can do NOTHING of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he (that is whatever the Almighty God the Father ) doing (in a dream or vision), these also do the Son likewise.”
 
Jesus could do nothing of himself, but as his God and Father led his Son Jesus by or through the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father dwelling in his Son and Jesus obeyed the leading of his God and Father, then the Holy Spirit dwelling in Jesus did the work. This particular verse says that he sees his Father doing things do Jesus simply does what he sees his Father doing. Well, one way this may have happened is that the Father gave his Son dreams and vision where Jesus saw himself healing people. And then, when Jesus was walking along he saw things that he saw in his dream or vision that he knew were given to him the Holy Spirit and then, he simply obeyed the dream or vision to do what he saw the Father doing in the dream or vision. Jesus says this same thing again in John 5:30, which says,
 
I can of mine OWN self do NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine OWN will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.”
 
 So then, what Jesus saw the Father do, was to ME, either in a dream, or a vision, and he obeyed the Holy Spirit and did likewise what he saw or what he heard. In other words, Jesus simply acted out the vision, or dream given to him by the Holy Spirit. And what Jesus heard the Father say, whether in an audible voice, or the small still voice of the Holy Spirit, he promptly obeyed, and thus fulfilled the will of the Father, his God. Jesus did not submit to his OWN will to his OWN will, but rather Jesus obeyed his God and Father's will over his OWN will.
 
Luke 4:18 says it this way,
 
 
The Spirit of the Lord (that is the Spirit of Almighty God the Father) is upon me (why?), because he has ANOINTED me (meaning that Almighty God has ANOINTED his SON Jesus, AND has also made this SAME ANOINTING available to whosoever believes on the Son of God and being the CHRIST, the anointed OF God) to preach the gospel to the poor, he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
 
 
And then in Acts 10:38 we read the following,
 

How God ANOINTED Jesus of Nazareth with the HOLY GHOST and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; (How? How did Jesus heal the sick, cast of devils and raise the dead?) for (or BECAUSE) God was WITH him.” 
 
 
 And Almighty God the Father was WITH the Son of MAN, Jesus, by DWELLING is Jesus as the person of the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that it was the FATHER IN him who did the WORKS.  You see, Jesus was NOT FULLY Almighty God HIMSELF and fully a man at the same time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human as the doctrine of the Deity wrongly teaches, but rather Jesus was FULLY a MAN just like you and I and Almighty God the Father was WITH his Son Jesus in the person of the Holy Spirit by DWELLING IN the Son of MAN. And this very SAME Holy Spirit that Jesus was ANOINTED with to do the miracles he did and to live his life without sin is promised to every believer. Keep in mind that the word of God teaches us that Almighty God IS SPIRIT, so the Holy Spirit of Almighty God is one and the self-same being as Almighty God.
 
Jesus said in John 14:10
 
“Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father IN me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that DWELLS IN me (in the person of the Holy Spirit) he does the works.”
 

As Jesus heard, and saw from the Father through the Holy Spirit he simply obeyed, and spoke what the Holy Spirit was saying, or did what the Holy Spirit was directing him to do through a dream, or a vision. And then, the Holy Spirit, who IS the FATHER, did the works. Please read the study "THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER!" for a deeper understanding that the Holy Spirit IS a PERSON, but NOT a THIRD person of a so called Trinity God because the Bible ITSELF clearly teaches us that the ONE true and only ALMIGHTY God is ONE being. God always confirms his word with signs following. We are told about this in Mark 16:20.

Jesus did the miracles and lived his life without sin NOT because he was Almighty God HIMSELF, as in, one and the self-same being as the one true and only Almighty God because this INTERPRETATION contradicts other parts of God's word like God is NOT a man and God can NOT be tempted and Jesus was both a MAN that was indeed tempted.

 Jesus did the miracles and lived his life without sin NOT because he was the SON OF God having a divine nature and therefore an advantage over every other human being. 

But rather Jesus did the miraculous works and lived his life without sin as an EXAMPLE for us to FOLLOW because he was the Son of MAN ANOINTED and EMPOWERED with the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN him. The Bible ITSELF clearly teaches us that the fullness of the Godhead DWELT IN the Son of MAN and NOT that the Son of MAN was fully Almighty God HIMSELF. 

Please read Colossians 2:9.

For IN him DWELLS all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Jesus was NOT the fulness of the Godhead as some Christians interpret this verse, but rather the Godhead, the FATHER dwelt IN the body of the flesh of Jesus. God formed a MAN to be the express IMAGE of his character. So seeing the WORKS that Jesus did was the express image of the Father's true character. And this same ANOINTING or FULLNESS of the Holy Spirit now dwells in you and me, if so be, that you have been baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of your heavenly prayer language, which the Bible calls in speaking in other tongues. Now if by chance you do not understand what I have just stated, and have not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, then I strongly exhort you to seek the Holy Spirit with all your heart. If you desire to know more about this subject, please read the study entitled “THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER.”

Satan does not want believers to see this TRUTH that Jesus came in the flesh, 100% flesh and blood like you and I, and that it was for this VERY REASON of becoming a MAN that gave Jesus the very authority he possessed while he was in the earth.
 
Look at John 5:27
 
And has given him (Jesus and us as well) AUTHORITY to execute judgment also, (why?) BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN.
 
It was legally necessary for Jesus to become a man, 100% flesh and blood, a human being just like you and me, to be condemned to death on the cross an innocent man , because our enemy, Satan the devil, stole the authority of mankind when he deceived Adam to disobey God. So in order to restore our authority Jesus needed to be a MAN and live a life without sin and be crucified as an innocent man in order to redeem mankind back to God the Father. For BY one MAN sin entered the world, and BY one MAN sin is destroyed in those who BELIEVE. For a deeper understanding on this subject please read the study entitled "UNDERSTANDING WHY?" which shows you why God could not just step in and help man until man asked for his help first. This is why sometimes bad things happen to good Christian people.
 
Remember when Jesus went into the country of the Gaderenes, and there met him a man with an unclean spirit, and that unclean spirit being many cried out with a loud voice. What have we to do with you Jesus, you the Son of the most high or highest God? Are you come hither to torment us before the time? I adjure you by God that you torment us not.
 
The word “adjure” here means to charge, or command by authoritative obligation, to give an order. So in truth, the devils said to Jesus we adjure you by God to torment us not, or in other words, we COMMAND you Jesus by the authority of Almighty God that you leave us alone, because neither God nor his Son has any right or authority on the earth. I explain what I mean by this in the study I mentioned above, "UNDERSTANDING WHY?" 
 
But because Jesus was the Son of MAN and NOT Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh as we have been falsely taught, he had the authority to execute judgment, and command the devils to come out of the man. The devils had no choice but to obey the Son of Man, because Jesus was truly 100% MAN, who was anointed with the Holy Ghost, and who was WITHOUT SIN. You see, sin cripples you and temporarily strips you of your God given authority over the enemy and the earth while you are living IN sin. Once you repent you are made perfect once again, then you have the authority to use the name of Jesus.
 
 God gave MAN dominion over all the earth. So, if Jesus were, in fact, THE one true and only ALMIGHTY God himself in the flesh, being FULLY God only CLOTHED in a fleshly body, then he would illegally be exercising authority in the earth, and could not have cast out the devils in this man. Therefore, Jesus could not have authority in the earth, if so be, he was truly the fully divine eternal God in the flesh, or even as the Son of the most high God having the eternal divine nature of God, as others have falsely proclaimed. The TRUTH is that Jesus had authority and power to do all that he did in the earth BECAUSE he was a MAN like you and I who was anointed with the Holy Ghost. The word of truth teaches us that all authority and power was GIVEN to Jesus BY his God and Father the one true and only ALMIGHTY God.
Jesus not only depended upon the Holy Spirit to do the miracles, but he also relied upon the Holy Spirit to live his life free from sin. 
Hebrews 9:14 says,
 
 “How much more shall the blood of Christ WHO THROUGH THE ETERNAL SPIRIT offered himself WITHOUT SPOT (or without SIN) to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
 
 Just as Jesus could do nothing of himself, but rather depended totally upon the Holy Spirit, so must we also depend upon the Holy Spirit to live our lives free from sin also.
 
Galatians 5:16 tells us to,
 
“WALK IN THE SPIRIT AND YOU SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH.”
 
Remember that Jesus is our EXAMPLE that we are to follow. Jesus lived his life without sin, and therefore we ought to live our lives free from sin as well.
Yes, you will suffer temptation just as Jesus did, but you do not have to obey your LOWER nature and give into what tempts you. It is your CHOICE whether or not to obey God or whether to obey the deceiving voice of the enemy, Satan. Remember you are the servant of whom you CHOOSE to obey. So just believe and obey the Holy Spirit as Jesus did.
In the study entitled "THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER" I will show you HOW to discover your true authority and power over the enemy and how to become an over comer. May God bless you richly in your search to draw ever closer to him.

     Thanks for reading. May God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Below are some other verses that are used to try and support the doctrine of the Trinity and the deity of Jesus. There may be other verses which you may be having trouble seeing any other way than what you were dogmatically taught over and over for so long, but I assure you that each and every verse used by those who teach the doctrine of the trinity does indeed have a different meaning that does NOT CONTRADICT any other part of God's word. 

       If there is a verse that I have not listed please do not hesitate to write and let me know. Some verses are included in others studies and they may not appear as an individual study. of its own. If there is a verse of verses that you seem to struggle with only being able to see the doctrine of the trinity when you read this verse, then please search out the truth be listening to the other side of the controversy. No one can arrive at the truth by hearing only ONE side of the controversy. I myself present to you my readers and seekers of the truth with ALL the evidence from all sides of the controversy that I myself have found and then I leave it up to you to decide what you yourself want to believe.

       Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

       Mark.

       Here are some suggested studies that relate to Jesus being called God and yet not being the one true and only Almighty God himself.

       "WHAT DOES GOD INCARNATE TRULY MEAN?"

       In other words, did Almighty God himself manifest himself in the flesh or did the Son of God manifest himself in the flesh? What does the Bible ITSELF teach us?

       "WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD'S ETERNAL SON?"

       In other words, did the Son of God always exist as a separate distinct person, who was with the god at his side, or did Jesus have a beginning as the Son of MAN and then the Son of MAN BECAME the ETERNAL Son of God AFTER the cross? What does the Bible ITSELF teach?

       "37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD?"37 FACTS"

       This study brings forth 37 statements of fact that do not need any interpretation to know what these verses mean. When the Bible says that God is NOT a man and neither is God the son of man, then that is what it means. God is eternal and cannot die. Jesus was the Son of AM who died and his God raised him from the dead and gave him the divine nature of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always had immortality in himself.

       "IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?"

       This study covers the verse like Revelation 1:8 that SEEMS to be Jesus saying that he is the Almighty.

       "IS JESUS YAHWEH?"

       "WHAT DOES JOHN1:14 TRULY MEAN?"

       In other words, does John truly mean that God became flesh, but yet REMAINED the fully divine eternal God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human, as the doctrine of the Deity claims? Or did the spoken word that came forth out from God truly become flesh void of any divine nature? What does the Bible ITSELF teach?

       "JOHN 1:1 THE WORD WAS GOD!"

       I highly suggest reading this study to learn what the LITERAL text actually says. Some Christians read John 1:1 as saying, In the beginning, was Jesus, and Jesus was WITH God and Jesus was God. But what does the Bible ITSELF teach?

      "DID GOD CREATE ALL THINGS OUT OF NOTHING?"


       In other words, did God create all thing out from himself or did God create all things out of nothing? In each of the above studies, there is also a list of suggested studies that relate to those studies. For example, in the above study on creation, I suggest also reading "EPHESIAN 3:9-11-DID JESUS CREATE ALL THINGS?", which covers the question of WHO IS THE CREATOR, did God himself alone create all things by himself or did the SON OF God create all things?
