P-7. Biblical INDWELLING versus God INCARNATE!

 

 

What do I mean by the terms “Biblical indwelling” and “God INCARNATE”? The term “INDWELLING” simply means the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which is a BIBLICAL term. For you see, the Bible itself clearly teaches us that God DWELT in Jesus. And now, we who believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior are the TEMPLE of God. In other words, God now DWELLS in us as Christians.

So the question being asked is the term “God INCARNATE” a Biblical term? In other words, does the Bible ITSELF teach us that Almighty God “incarnated” Himself to become the Son of MAN? 

Now, for some of you who may not know what the word “incarnate” means, here is what a secular dictionary says in the simplest sense. The word “incarnate” means a deity or a spirit being in a human form. But Orthodox Christianity defines the term “God INCARNATE” to mean that Almighty God manifested HIMSELF as the Son of MAN, referring to Jesus. In other words, Orthodox Christianity defines the term “God INCARNATE” to mean that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF. And that would mean that Almighty God Himself became a MAN or a human being, because clearly, Jesus is the Son of MAN.

So again, the question is whether or not the term “God INCARNATE” is Biblical or not? Did Almighty God BECOME a MAN? And if so, then was the Son of MAN, Jesus, FULLY Almighty God and fully a human being at the SAME time during the days of his FLESH as the doctrine of “God INCARNATE” claims?

First, I will list some facts as to why the Orthodox Christian “TERM” God incarnate is NOT Biblical.

 

FACT #1. The word “incarnate” is NOT found anywhere in the Bible itself.

 

FACT #2. The “concept” of God manifesting Himself into a human being and remaining fully Almighty God while also being human at the SAME time is NOT found anywhere in the Bible itself.

 

FACT #3. There are absolutely no PROPHECIES in the Bible of Almighty God becoming the Son of MAN.

 

FACT #4. However, there are verses of Scripture that clearly teach us in SIMPLICITY that God is NOT a MAN and neither is God the Son of MAN. We will cover the following verses of Scripture further on in this study in God’s word found in Numbers 23:19, Hosea 11:9, and 1 Samuel 15:29.

 

FACT #5. The doctrine of the “Incarnation of the Son of God” is the invention of the Roman Catholic Church. Here is a quote from Wikipedia. The emphasis is mine.

 

The most widely accepted definitions of the incarnation and the nature of Jesus were made by the First Council of Nicaea in 325, the Council of Ephesus in 431, and the Council of Chalcedon in 451. These councils declared that Jesus was both fully God: begotten from, but not created by the Father; and fully man: taking his flesh and human nature from the Virgin Mary. These two natures, human and divine, were hypostatically united into the one personhood of Jesus Christ.[note 1] According to the Catholic Church, an ecumenical council's declarations are infallible, making the incarnation a dogma in the Catholic Church.”

 

So then, it took three church councils over a century to define their man-made doctrine of the “INCARNATION”. In other words, the man-made doctrine of the dual natures of Jesus at the same time during the days of his FLESH was not made an “official” church dogma until the FIFTH CENTURY, which was over four hundred years after the resurrection of Jesus. And both the doctrine of the Trinity and the two natures of Jesus at the same time during the days of his flesh were basically forced upon Christians by the leaders of what would become the Roman Catholic Church. Do your own unbiased research on the history of the doctrine of the Trinity and you will see that many Christians were excommunicated, exiled, and even martyred for rejecting the man-made doctrine of the Trinity. And by “unbiased” I mean truly consider what the opposing side has researched concerning the development of the doctrine of the Trinity in the church. Here is a link to a Biblical Unitarian article on the origin of the Trinity.

Now, mere common sense should teach us that if the doctrine of the so-called “Incarnation” is Biblical, then it should be taught in SIMPLICITY in the Bible ITSELF! But what the Bible itself teaches us in SIMPLICITY totally CONTRADICTS the man-made doctrine of God becoming a human being and remaining the fully Almighty God Himself in the flesh having TWO natures at the SAME time, one divine, and one human.

So then, here is a list of verses of Scripture that prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus is NOT Almighty God Himself in the FLESH as the man-made doctrine of “God INCARNATE” CLAIMS.

 

#1. Jesus is the SON of God!

 

According to John 20:30,31 and many other verses of Scripture, Jesus is the Son of Almighty God and NOT Almighty God HIMSELF. Simply type in the phrase “Son of God” in an online Bible concordance to find 47 verses of Scripture in the New Testament proving that Jesus is the Son of God. I chose the passage of Scripture in John 20:30,31 because the Apostle John, who wrote the Gospel of John, tells us what was the very PURPOSE of him writing the Gospel of John. And the very PURPOSE of the Gospel of John is so THAT we will believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. And by believing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ we might have eternal life. 

 

John 20:30,31.

 

“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 

31.  But these are written, THAT you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name.” 

 

So then, the Apostle John INTENDS his words to be interpreted and understood that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God and NOT that Jesus is Almighty God Himself in the flesh.

 

#2. Jesus is the IMAGE OF the invisible God!

 

According to Colossians 2:15, Jesus was made in the IMAGE of Almighty God after the Resurrection, being the FIRSTBORN of every creature from the DEAD. 

God prophesied in Genesis 2:26 speaking to His yet future Messiah saying, “Let us make man in our IMAGE after our LIKENESS”. But first, God needed to make His human Son, Jesus, in His express IMAGE, according to Hebrews 1:3,4. And now, God is conforming those of us who believe in the IMAGE of His Son, who is the FIRSTBORN among many BRETHREN, according to Romans 8:29. 

 

Let us read Colossians 3:10.

 

“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:”

 

It was Almighty God the Father who created us as new creatures in His Son Jesus Christ, according to Ephesians 2:10 and Ephesians 3:9. And when God finishes making us in the IMAGE of His Son that does NOT mean that we will be Jesus himself. So then, Jesus being made in the IMAGE of Almighty God does NOT make Jesus to be Almighty God Himself. We are made in the IMAGE of God and that does NOT mean that God “incarnated” Himself to become each one of us. The simple truth is that God PROPHESIED that He would have a Son, and then God PERFORMED His own spoken word of prophecy to bring it to pass. And thus, Jesus is the WORKMANSHIP of Almighty God.

Please read the following studies.

O-15. When did Jesus Become God's Son? Part 2

O-16. When did Jesus Become God's Son? Part 3

 

 

#3. Almighty God is the God OF His Son, Jesus!

 

According to Revelation 3:12,13 and many other verses of Scripture, Almighty God is the God OF His Son, Jesus. Almighty God is the God of Jesus BOTH during the days of his flesh, and now, after the resurrection of Jesus.

 

Revelation 3:12,13.

 

“Him that overcomes (Which include overcoming FALSE doctrine as well that could cause the loss of salvation) will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 

13.  He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”

 

Four times in this one verse of Scripture Jesus refers to Almighty God and being his God. And this is AFTER the Son of God was glorified and given the divine nature of immortality to be made in the express IMAGE of God to OBTAIN a more excellent name than the angels, according to Hebrews 1:3-5.

Can you not see that it is impossible for Jesus to be Almighty God Himself in the flesh? For you see, the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY that Almighty God is the God OF or OVER His Son Jesus. And Almighty God Himself has no other God over him. Otherwise, He would not be the Almighty or HIGHEST God seeing that there was another God over and above Him. Therefore, Jesus is another God who was MADE Lord and God by his God and Father after the cross, according to Acts 2:36. It was after the resurrection that the human Son of God was GIVEN all power and authority, according to Matthew 28:18 and John 17:2. It was after the resurrection that it PLEASE God that all of the FULLNESS of the Godhead should DWELL in Jesus, according to Colossians 2:9. It was after the resurrection that God GAVE His human Son the DIVINE NATURE of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always possessed eternal life in Himself, according to John 5:26,27. And it was after the resurrection that Jesus was DECLARED to be the Son of God with POWER, according to Romans 1:3,4.

 

#4. During the days of his FLESH, Jesus could do NOTHING of himself!

 

According to John 5:19,30, Jesus could do NOTHING of himself. Now, if Jesus was truly Almighty God Himself in the flesh as the man-made doctrine of “God incarnate” CLAIMS, then how can an Almighty God do NOTHING of Himself?

When Jesus was being falsely accused by the unsaved Jews of working on the Sabbath day and making himself EQUAL with God in verse 18, Jesus defended himself. Jesus teaches us in SIMPLICITY that he could do NOTHING of himself proving that he was NOT making himself equal to his God and Father.

 

John 5:18,19,30.

 

“Therefore, the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself EQUAL with God. 

19. Then ANSWERED Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, (Or TRULY, TRULY) I say unto you, The Son can do NOTHING of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also do the Son likewise…

…30.   I can of my OWN self do NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.” 

 

Now, some Trinitarian Christians will try to argue that God the Son stripped himself of all his divine power to take on the form of a servant to be made in the likeness of man. And they use Philippians 2:6-8 as their proof text.

But in truth, the LITERAL meaning of the Greek word “huparcho” that is translated as “BEING” in the FORM of God in Philippians 2:6 actually means to come into existence to BEGIN UNDER in the form of God. Here is how E-Sword defines the Greek word “huparcho”.

 

G5225

huparchō

hoop-ar'-kho

From G5259 and G756; to begin under (quietly), that is, come into existence (be present or at hand); expletively, to exist (as copula or subordinate to an adjective, participle, adverb or preposition, or as auxiliary to principal verb): - after behave, live.

Total KJV occurrences: 47.

 

And the very CONTEXT teaches us that it was AFTER the cross that God HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of MAN, Jesus, and GAVE him a NAME that is above every other name. Please read the study V-47. Philippians 2:6-8 Proves Jesus Pre-existed?

 

#5. God DWELT in His human Son, Jesus!

 

According to John 14:10 and many other verses of Scripture, Almighty God DWELT in His human Son, Jesus, as opposed to Jesus being Almighty God Himself. And Almighty God is clearly identified as being the FATHER.

 

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, He does the works.”

 

So then, from the Scriptures found in John 5:19,30, John 14:10, Acts 10:38, and Hebrews 9:14 we can clearly see that the eternal Spirit is called the Father who did the works as the anointed human Son of God obeyed his God and Father who DWELT in him. Please read the study M-5. WHY the HOLY SPIRIT is the FATHER?

It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to say that Almighty God DWELT in Almighty God. It makes no sense to say that Almighty God was WITH Almighty God. And it makes no sense to say that Almighty God is the God OF Almighty God. But it makes PERFECT sense for God to bring into existence a MAN who would be miraculously BORN of a VIRGIN without a human father to be a SIGN that the child would be God’s MESSIAH. It makes perfect sense for God to PROPHESY that He would EXALT His FIRST BORN Son to be made higher than the kings of the earth.

So then, the TRUE Jesus, according to the Bible ITSELF, is that Jesus is the fulfillment of the PROPHECIES of Yahweh who performed His spoken word of prophecy to bring it to pass. And according to the prophecy in Isaiah 9:6,7, the Son of God was brought into existence at the Virgin BIRTH as the HUMAN Son of God. And then, the human Son of God was GIVEN to die on the cross, according to John 8:28. Let us go ahead and read that verse of Scripture.

 

John 8:28. 

 

“Then said Jesus unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of MAN, then shall you KNOW that I am he, and that I do NOTHING of myself; but as my Father has TAUGHT me, I speak these things.”

 

The pronoun “he” was added by the translators for clarity, and rightly so, because from the very beginning of his ministry Jesus began telling the Jews that he is the one PROPHESIED in the Scriptures. And thus, whenever Jesus said I am and I am he, then he INTENDED his words to mean “I am he that was PROPHESIED to come”.

Please notice that in a few verses right before this verse 28, Jesus uses the same words “I am” he, in John 8:24,25. And again, the translators added the pronoun “he” for clarity, and rightly so. The Jews then ask Jesus WHO are you saying you are? And Jesus told the Jews that he is the SAME one that he has been telling them who he is from the beginning. Let us go ahead and read those two verses of Scripture as well.

 

John 8:24,25. 

 

“I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you believe NOT that I am he, you shall die in your sins. 

25.  Then said they unto him, Who are you? And Jesus said unto them, Even the SAME that I said unto you from the beginning.”

 

So then, WHO did Jesus himself say to the Jews that he is at the beginning of his ministry right after God ANOINTED His Son with the Holy Spirit and power, according to Acts 10:38? Let us read Luke 4:14-21.

 

Luke 4:14-21.

 

“And Jesus returned in the POWER of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region roundabout. 

15.  And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

16.  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 

17.  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 

18.  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has ANOINTED me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 

19.  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 

20.  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 

21.  And he BEGAN to say unto them, This day is this Scripture FULFILLED in your ears.”

 

In other words, from the very beginning of his ministry, Jesus is teaching us that he is the FULFILLMENT of the Scriptures, the ONE PROPHESIED to come. And thus, Jesus said, if you do NOT believe that I am he, the ONE prophesied in the Scriptures to be the Messiah, then you shall die in your sins. Remember in John 20:30,31, the Apostle John who wrote these words of Jesus, said that the PURPOSE for writing the Gospel of John is so THAT we might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. And in a few verses after warning the Jews that if they do not believe that Jesus is who he said he is from the very beginning of his ministry, then they will die in their sins. Jesus said that they would KNOW who he is after they crucified the Son of MAN. It does NOT say after you have crucified GOD then you will know that I am Almighty God Himself in the flesh. Let us read that verse again.

 

John 8:28. 

 

“Then said Jesus unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of MAN, then shall you KNOW that I am he, and that I do NOTHING of myself; but as my Father has TAUGHT me, I speak these things.”

 

Now let us read Acts 2:29-41, which is the very first Gospel message that was preached, and three thousand Jews believed and were saved that day.

 

Acts 2:29-41.

 

“Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day. 

30.  Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, He would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; (So then, according to PROPHECY in the Scriptures, God promised that His Messiah would be born in the lineage of King David who was FLESH. Also, notice that the PURPOSE of the prophecy was for Yahweh to resurrect His ANOINTED one from the dead to be MADE Lord to sit on Yahweh’s throne WITH Yahweh at His right hand)

31.  He, seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of Christ, (Or the resurrection of the ANOINTED one prophesied to come) that his soul was not left in hell, nor his FLESH did see corruption. 

32.  This Jesus has God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 

33.  Therefore, being by the right hand of God EXALTED, and having RECEIVED from the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he has shed forth this, which you now see and hear. (Now, how can an already fully Almighty God in the flesh be EXALTED to join Almighty God on His throne? It makes no sense for what is SUPPOSEDLY an already HIGHEST God to be EXALTED. So, according to the Scriptures, the Trinitarian CLAIM that Jesus is Almighty God Himself in the FLESH contradicts what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY)

34.  For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he said himself, (Or the prophet David himself PROPHESIED saying) The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit you on my right hand, 

35.  UNTIL I make your foes your footstool. (Notice that there is a time limit as to how long Jesus will rule as God over the earth)

36.  Therefore, let all the house of Israel KNOW ASSUREDLY, that God has MADE that same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ. (Again, clearly seeing that the Bible itself teaches us that the Son of MAN was MADE Lord by his God and Father AFTER the cross, then the man-made doctrine of God INCARNATE directly CONTRADICTS what the Scriptures teach. It makes no sense to ALREADY be Lord during the days of his flesh and then MADE Lord by God AFTER the cross and resurrection. Therefore, to me, the man-made doctrine of “God incarnate” is NOT Biblical)

37.  Now when they heard this, (Speaking of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ where Yahweh MADE His ANOINTED one Lord to sit on the right hand of Yahweh on Yahweh’s throne) they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 

38.  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

39.  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 

40.  And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 

41.  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”

 

So then, the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY that the Son of God was brought into existence by his God as the HUMAN Son of God first. And then, AFTER the cross, the human Son of God was highly EXALTED to join his God and Father on the Father’s throne UNTIL Yahweh has put all of the enemies under the feet of His Son. In other words, Jesus was MADE Lord after the cross as the joy set before the Son of MAN to endure the cross, according to Hebrews 12:2. And according to Acts 2:34,35; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, and Micah 4:6-8. Jesus will rule and reign as God over the earth for ONLY 1000 years UNTIL Yahweh has put all the enemies under the feet of Jesus. And after the 1000 year reign of Jesus has come to an END so will Jesus ruling as God over the earth come to an END as well. Jesus will step down from ruling for God as the Lord of the SABBATH during Yahweh’s 1000 year long day of rest and commit the kingdom back into his God and Father’s hands.

So again, to me, the doctrine of “God INCARNATE” does NOT agree with anything that the Scriptures themselves teach us in simplicity. The word “God” is found 1,372 times in the New Testament. And only FIVE of those 1,372 times does the word “theos”, translated as “God”, definitely NOT refer to Almighty God Himself.

The Greek word “theos” is translated 3 times as the word “god” referring to false gods.

 

Acts 7:43.

 

“Yea, you took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.”

 

Acts 12:22.

 

“And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.”

 

Acts 17:23. 

 

“For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him, declare I unto you.”

 

The Greek word “theos” is translated 1 time as the word “god” referring to men thinking that Paul was a god/

 

Acts 28:6. 

 

“Howbeit, they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.”

 

The Greek word “theos” is translated 1 time as the word “god” referring to Satan.

 

2 Corinthians 4:4.

 

“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of those which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the IMAGE of God, should shine unto them.”

 

And the Greek word “theos” is also translated 1 time in two verses in the same passage of Scripture the word “god” definitely and without a doubt refers to Jesus as a God under his God.

 

Hebrews 1:8,9. 

 

“But unto the Son he saith, Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.

9.  You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has ANOINTED you with the oil of gladness ABOVE your fellows.”

 

Please notice that in every instance that the word “god” does NOT refer to Almighty God Himself. In other words, the word “theos” translated as “God” will NOT be capitalized by the translators except of Almighty God the Father and also in the case of Jesus being called God by his God and Father after the cross. And since it is blatantly obvious that the Scriptures teach us in SIMPLICITY that Jesus is a God under and subject to his God and Father, then in my own opinion the TITLE of “God” should NOT be capitalized when referring to Jesus. And if it is capitalized out of honoring the Son even as we honor the Father, then there should be a footnote teaching Christians that Jesus was made Lord and God under his God and Father after the cross. Notice that it was AFTER the Son of God loved righteousness and hated iniquity that his God ANOINTED Jesus ABOVE his FELLOWS.

Now in truth, Hebrews 1:8,9 is actually the ONLY verse of Scripture in the New Testament where the word “God” definitely refers to Jesus being called God by his God and Father. In other words, all of the other verses of Scriptures that are used to try and teach that Jesus is “God incarnate” have to be INTERPRETED with the preconceived belief in the doctrine of the Trinity. But again, the truth of the matter is that Hebrews 1:8,9 is the ONLY passage of Scripture in the New Testament that is undeniable proof that Jesus is called by the TITLE of God by his God and Father. So clearly, there is no doubt that Jesus was highly exalted and GIVEN the NAME or TITLE of “God” to rule for 1000 years for Yahweh in the NAME of Yahweh during the world to come. But that does not make Jesus to be Almighty God Himself. For you see, we who overcome will also be made gods to rule and reign WITH Jesus for 1000 years as well.

Please read the following Scriptures listed below on your own. I will only quote the two verses that Jesus quoted in the New Testament. Here is a list of Scripture references to look up later on your own: Exodus 15:11, Exodus 18:11, Deuteronomy 10:17, Deuteronomy 32:17, Psalm 82:1, Psalm 82:6, Psalm 86:8, Psalm 95:3, Psalm 96:4,5, Psalm 97:7,9, Psalm 135:5, Psalm 136:2, and Psalm 138:1.

And here are the two verses that Jesus quoted from Psalm.

 

John 10:34-36. 

 

“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, YOU ARE gods?

35.  If He called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken;

36.  Then why do you say of him, whom the Father has SANCTIFIED, and SENT into the world, you blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of God?”

 

Can you not see the DIFFERENCE between God DWELLING in Jesus from Jesus being God Himself? The Bible ITSELF teaches us over and over that God DWELT in Jesus. God was WITH His human Son, Jesus. But nowhere in the Bible are there any prophecies foretelling that God Himself would come down from heaven and “incarnate”, “manifest”, or become a MAN or the Son of MAN.

But there are PROPHECIES in the Scriptures that God would send His word out from His MOUTH and that it would accomplish what God sent it to accomplish. And the “word” was made FLESH. And after the “flesh”, the Son of MAN, became obedient even unto death on the cross. Then God highly exalted the FLESH, the Son of MAN, Jesus, to be MADE Lord and God of the SABBATH during the seventh 1000 year long DAY of Yahweh’s seventh day REST.

Let me conclude this study in God’s word with one more passage of Scripture that clearly teaches us that God DWELT in Jesus reconciling the world to Himself/

 

Please read 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.

 

“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 

18.  And ALL things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation; (The word “things” is not in the original Greek text and the CONTEXT is speaking of the ALL who God reconciled to Himself through His ANOINTED Son to become God’s new creation of NEW CREATURES)

19.  To wit, (Or in the following manner is HOW God created us in Jesus to become His NEW CREATURES. It was)

that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 

20.  Now then we are ambassadors FOR Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be you reconciled to God. (Or and now so likewise, we are ambassadors FOR Jesus just as the Son of MAN, Jesus, was an ambassador FOR God)

21.  For He has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

 

Plain and simple, the INDWELLING of God in Jesus is BIBLICAL and the man-made doctrine of “God INCARNATE” is NOT Biblical.
