The DEITY of JESUS, ACCORDING to the BIBLE!-2

SPELLING EDITED


THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE! Part 2

 

SECTION FOUR

 

Here in section four in part two of the study, we will learn what the Bible ITSELF teaches us concerning the Deity of Jesus. Remember in section three of part 1of this study, we learned that the TWO natures of Jesus at the SAME time during the days of his FLESH did not come into existence as church doctrine until 451 AD at the church council at Chalcedon. The controversy was between ONENESS Christians who believe that Jesus had ONE nature and that his nature was fully Divine having NO human nature while Trinitarian Christians insist that Jesus had TWO natures at the SAME time during the days of his flesh, one nature was divine and one nature was human. But there were ALSO other Christians who believed that Jesus had ONE nature that was HUMAN nature during the days of his FLESH. They believed that Jesus was the ADOPTED Son of God in much the same way that WE are adopted sons and daughters of God but we are not yet ETERNAL sons and daughters of God. 

Also, in part 2 of this study, I will begin with my focus on the Oneness or the Modalist doctrine of Jesus in the early church during the third to fifth centuries having NO human nature ever. So then, for all my Oneness Pentecostal readers, please notice that Jesus is a SEPARATE person from the Father that is the God OF His human Son and still yet God OF His now highly exalted Son that He Himself SET at His own right hand on His own throne to JOIN his God to rule TOGETHER for 1000 years during the Millennial reign of Jesus while his God puts everything under his feet, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-38. I will highlight all the words, TITLES, and pronouns that refer to the Father in orange, and all the words, TITLES, and pronouns referring to Jesus in yellow. The other colors are for emphasis. For example, SOME of the words in blue refer to Jesus AFTER the cross because that was when the human Jesus was MADE Lord by his God who is the Father.

 

Acts 2:33.

 

“Therefore, being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received OF the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he (Speaking of the now highly exalted human Son, Jesus after the cross who was GIVEN the power and the authority by Yahweh to baptize believers in the Holy Spirit who is the EARNEST of God’s own being) has shed forth this, which you now see and hear.”

 

Romans 1:7.

 

“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our FATHER, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST who was MADE Lord and Christ BY his God, according to Acts 2:36. Now some ONENESS believers may INTERPRET this verse to wrongly teach that Jesus IS the FATHER but that does not make it be the truth just because some church denomination INCORRECTLY interprets verses in the Bible. We must interpret each verse in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God to learn its CORRECT interpretation. And the very next verse clearly teaches us that Jesus is NOT the FATHER, but rather, that God is the Father OF Jesus.

 

Romans 15:6.

 

“That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, EVEN the FATHER OF our Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being clearly identified as being our Lord and CHRIST.

 

1 Corinthians 1:3.

 

“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our FATHER, AND from the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being the Lord and the Christ.

 

1 Corinthians 15:24.

 

“Then comes the end, when he (Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the FATHER) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, EVEN the Father; when He (The Father) shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being the SON OF God, who is our Lord and CHRIST.

 

2 Corinthians 1:2.

 

“Grace be to you and peace from God our FATHER, AND from the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

2 Corinthians 1:3.

 

Blessed be God, EVEN the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. Almighty God the FATHER is being identified as the Father OF our Lord Jesus the CHRIST along with being identified as the Father of mercies and also as the God of all comfort. It says BLESSED BE God who is clearly identified as being the Father, the father of mercies, and also the God of all comfort who is the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

2 Corinthians 11:31.

 

“The God and Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. It is the God and Father who is blessed evermore that is the one who is the all-knowing God.

 

Galatians 1:1.

 

“Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, AND (Also by) God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”

 

Galatians 1:3.

 

“Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, AND from our Lord Jesus Christ,”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. And to all my Oneness Pentecostal readers, please notice that the peace is FROM God the Father AND FROM Jesus which clearly teaches us that Jesus is NOT the Father and the Father is NOT Jesus. It was the Father who MADE Jesus His Lord after the cross, according to Acts 2:36.

 

Galatians 1:4.

 

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the WILL OF God and our Father:”

 

It was NOT Almighty God who died on the cross, but rather, it was the Son of MAN who died on the cross, according to John For you see, the anointed Son of man  OBEYED the Will of his God and Father of his OWN free Will.

 

Ephesians 1:2.

 

“Grace be to you, and peace, from God ourFather, AND from the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. Also, for the “Oneness Pentecostal” believers all through these verses of Scripture, we clearly see TWO different beings. The words FROM God our Father AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ cannot be interpreted to mean ONE being. Clearly, the Bible ITSELF teaches us that we MUST believe in BOTH the Father AND the SON, according to 2 John 1:9, John 16:3, John 17:1-3, and many other verses of Scripture.

 

Ephesians 1:3.

 

Blessed be the God AND Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN Christ:”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. In this verse, we ALSO see the writer of Ephesians identifying the Father OF Jesus as being the GOD OF Jesus as well. So then, the ALMIGHTY is BOTH God AND Father OF Jesus whom He Himself MADE Lor and Christ, according to Acts 2:36.

 

Ephesians 1:17.

 

“That THE God OF our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation IN the knowledge of him:”

 

The subject of this verse is THE God OF Jesus, speaking of Almighty God the FATHER, as being the Father of glory, who gives us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him speaking of Jesus giving us the true understanding of his God and Father. Jesus came to show us the Father as the only true God and how to worship God who is Spirit in Spirit and in truth. And since the Father commands us to honor His now highly exalted human Son that has been made the first parker of the divine nature of immortality, then I am going to honor Jesus even as I honor the Father, according to John 5:23.

 

Ephesians 4:6

 

ONE God and FATHER of ALL, who is ABOVE ALL, and through all, and in you all.”

 

In this verse, the writer of the book of Ephesians clearly and plainly identifies the ALMIGHTY the God, who is ABOVE ALL as being the ONE God called the FATHER.

 

Ephesians 5:20.


“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”


Again, God is clearly identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

Ephesians 6:23.

 

“Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

Philippians 1:2.

 

“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Philippians 2:11.

 

“And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, TO the glory OF God the Father.”

 

In this verse, the writer teaches us that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and NOT that confess that Jesus is THE ALMIGHTY YAHWEH HIMSELF. So once again THE ALMIGHTY God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. Also notice that it is TO the GLORY OF the FATHER that every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord.

 

Philippians 4:20.

 

“Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.”

 

In this verse, we see only the FATHER as being God and again, the GLORY being given to the Father.

 

Colossians 1:2.

 

“To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

Colossians 1:3.

 

We give thanks to God and the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,”

 

Again, this verse is saying that God is the GOD OF Jesus and the FATHER OF Jesus, which agrees with the rest of God's word. Also, not that the THANKS is given to the Father.

 

1 Thessalonians 1:1.

 

“Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is IN God the Father AND IN the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. Also, this is another verse of Scripture that teaches us we must believe in BOTH the Father and the Son to be saved. In other words, we are IN the Father BY our being IN the Son. And if one does not believe in the Son of God then they do NOT have the Father either. For you see, the unsaved Jews believe in the Father but they are not IN the Father because they have rejected the Son of God, Jesus as their Messiah that God Himself raised up from among the people.


1 Thessalonians 1:3.

 

“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. How can Jesus be in the sight OF himself if so be that Jesus IS one and the self-same being as God our Father? Yes, Almighty God the Father is ONE God in ONE person but Jesus is a separate person and a separate being from his God and Father who alone in the ONLY true God, according to the words of Jesus himself 1n John 17:1-3. And remember that we will be judged by the words of Jesus, according to John 12:47,48.

 

1 Thessalonians 3:11.

 

“Now God HIMSELF and our Father, AND our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.”

 

Here in this verse, we see the writer clearly identifying the ONE true God HIMSELF as being the FATHER and again identifying Jesus as being both Lord and CHRIST. Again, keep in mind that it was the Son of MAN, Jesus, who was MADE both Lord and Christ by his God who is always identified as being the Father. The Son of MAN was made Christ at his baptism and the Son of MAN was MADE Lord AFTER the cross. So how can Jesus as being CALLED Lord and Yahweh the Father being CALLED Lord make Jesus BE the FIRST Lord who always existed without beginning when Yahweh MADE His HUMAN Son His Lord saying to him in PROPHECY MY Lord, according to Psalm 110:1 saying, “Sit you at My right hand UNTIL I make your enemies your footstool”?

 

1 Thessalonians 3:13.

 

“To the end he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, EVEN our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

2 Thessalonians 1:1.

 

“Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father AND [IN] the Lord Jesus Christ:”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. Remember that that Son of MAN, Jesus, was not made to become a Savior until AFTER the cross. The word Christ also means Messiah of Savior so Jesus Christ also means Jesus Savior who was MADE a Savior AFTER the cross BY THE Savior Yahweh the Father who PROPHESIED every detail of His Savior and then PERFORMED His own spoken word of prophecy to bring IT, His spoken word of prophecy to pass. And the “word” the spoken word of PROPHECY was MADE flesh and NOT some pre-existing God the Son who was supposedly begotten in the eternity past WITHOUT being begotten. The doctrine of INCARNATION is not sound Biblical teaching. Please read the study “WHAT DOES GOD INCARNATE TRULY MEAN?”

 

2 Thessalonians 1:2.

 

“Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

2 Thessalonians 2:16.

 

“Now our Lord Jesus Christ HIMSELF, AND God,EVEN our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,”

 

In this verse, the writer seems to go out of his way to clearly identify Jesus HIMSELF as being Lord and Christ and EVEN the FATHER as being the Almighty God. Personally, I do not understand how Oneness Pentecostal Christians cannot see that Jesus is a COMPLETELY separate and distinctly DIFFERENT person and being from his God and Father. It just boggles my mind how any person can believe that Jesus is one and the self-SAME being as Almighty God the Father. Did Yahweh MANIFEST a Son? Absolutely! Yes, Yahweh CREATED Himself a Son but Yahweh did NOT manifest HIMSELF to become His own Son. For the true sound Biblical meaning of the phrase “God MANIFEST in the flesh” please read the study “1 TIMOTHY 3:16 GOD MANIFEST IN THE FLESH!”

 

1 Timothy 1:2.

 

“Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father AND [from] Jesus Christ our Lord.”

 

Once again, our Lord is identified as being Jesus Christ and our God as being clearly identified as the FATHER.

 

2 Timothy 1:2.

 

“To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father AND [from] Christ Jesus our Lord.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST.

 

Titus 1:4.

 

“To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father AND [from] the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. And, just as a reminder, the Son of MAN, Jesus, was MADE our Savior AFTER the cross BY his God and Savior who saved His HUMAN Son from corruption and decay by resurrection His human Son from the dead and GIVING Jesus the Divine NATURE of immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has always possessed immortality in Himself, according to John 5:20-27. The only verse of Scripture in the entire Bible that DEFINES the BIBLICAL meaning of “divine nature” is found in 2 Peter 1:4. And in this verse, we learn that WE will ALSO be MADE partakers of the DIVINE NATURE at the coming of Jesus. So if Jesus having divine nature makes Jesus be Almighty God Himself then we ALSO will become Almighty God as well. But, in TRUTH, the true sound Biblical meaning of having divine nature is that you can never die. Now, Yahweh Himself can DESTROY any of His creation that He Himself GAVE His divine nature to. And God will destroy Lucifer, aka, Satan and the fallen angels in the lake of fire on the final Day of Judgment at the END of the Millennial reign of Jesus, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-38, which is when Jesus will commit the ruling of the Kingdom back into the hands of his God, the FATHER.

 

Philemon 1:3.

 

“Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father AND [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

James 1:27.

 

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

 

James 3:9.

 

“Therewith bless we God, EVEN the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.”

 

And Jesus was MADE in the IMAGE OF the invisible God AFTER the cross to become the FIRSTBORN of every CREATURE created IN the similitude OF his God and Father. For you see, we are being conformed into the IMAGE of God’s dear Son who is the FIRSTBORN among MANY BRETHREN, according to Romans 8:29. 

Now, I want you to think about Genesis 1:27 as a hidden message FROM Yahweh the creator to His yet future coming into existence Messiah as the fulfillment of the Scriptures saying “Let us make man in OUR image after our likeness” after I make you my FIRSTBORN Son in MY IMAGE after you obey all my Will to even die on the cross as my Savior to save the people, your brethren your FELLOWS form their sins. Here is My PLAN for Salvation the WAY that I have CHOSEN to save fallen humans. The Scriptures testify of YOU as being the one prophesied to come. And I have SET a joy before YOU in My prophecy to make My FIRSTBORN higher than the kings of the earth if you endure the cross. And TOGETHER, we will make fallen man in OUR image and you will rule as God for me in my name in the world to come for 1000 years UNTIL I make your enemies your footstool. I will give you and your fellows who become a saint the HONOR to execute VENGEANCE upon those who persecute you Will you do this for me and my namesake that has been polluted? If you will then you and your fellows who BELIEVE in my plan of salvation to be IN YOU will inherit the worlds to come. Now, all of what I just asked you to CONSIDER and meditate upon is PROVEN in the Scriptures. Please read all the studies under the headings >>>WHY ARE WE HERE?-IS GOD AT WAR?<<< and >>>VERSES USED TO TEACH THAT JESUS PRE-EXISTED!<<< But for now, let us continue with part 2 of this study to learn WHEN the Bible ITSELF teaches that the Son of MAN, Jesus, became a Deityafter the cross under the Almighty Deity, the Father.

In this verse that we just read in James, as in, 1 Corinthians 8:6, the writer EMPHASIZES God being SOLELY identified as being the FATHER ALONE with even MORE emphasis by saying EVEN the FATHER.

 

1 Peter 1:2.

 

“Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.”

 

According to John 10:36, the Son of God was SANCTIFIED by the Father who we know is a Spirit, and that there is only ONE Eternal Spirit. So to me, the Bible itself speaking of only TWO persons who are separate persons as opposed to there being three separate persons. Please read the study “WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER!”

 

1 Peter 1:3.

 

“Blessed be the God AND Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

 

Here again, the Almighty is being clearly identified as the God OF Jesus as well as the Father OF Jesus. And Jesus is identified as Lord and Christ.

 

2 Peter 1:17.

 

“For he (Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the FATHER) received from God the Father honor and glory when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is My beloved SON, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

First of all, consider WHEN God's Son RECEIVED honor and glory from Almighty God the Father which was at the baptism of Jesus and not in the eternity past. Also, consider WHY Jesus is His BELOVED Son in whom the Father is well pleased. For you see, Yahweh had been TRAINING His human Son from since he was a small child in the WAY of righteousness that he should go and NOT depart from it. And now, the God and Father of His human Son, Jesus, is READY to be TEMPTED by the devil to prove to Lucifer, aka, Satan and the fallen angels that an inferior species of being MADE a little LOSER than the angels can live WITHOUT sinning against His God. Remember that the one Godheadh in ONE person who alone is the Father will judge the world system which includes the god of this world system, aka, Satan BY the MAN the He Himself ORDAINED, according to Acts 17:31. Know you not that WE will judge the angels and that is WHY God created us in the first place? And the JOY set before us to endure unto the end to be saved is eternal life and being made JOINT-HEIRS with our brother Jesus. Please read the studies under the heading >>>WHAT ARE WE HERE?-IS GOD AT WAR?<<<


1 John 3:1. 

 

“Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore, the world knows us not, because it knew him not.” 

 

2 John 1:3.

 

“Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, FROM God the Father, AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son OF the Father, in truth and love.”

 

Again,  God is clearly identified as being the FATHER and Jesus as being Lord and CHRIST. I do not see how it can get any PLAINER than this verse of Scripture as to WHO Jesus truly is in relation to God who is the FATHER. Yea, the Son of MAN, Jesus who is the human Son of God is called God by TITLE or by NAME that was PROPHESIED to be his name WHEN the government shall be laid upon his soldiers. Remember the ODER of the events PROPHESIED in Isaiah 9:6,7 which we covered in part 1 of this study. First, a CHILD is prophesied to be BORN. And then the prophecy says a SON shall be GIVEN. It is read into the Scriptures by ONLY Trinitarian Christians that a pre-existing God the Son was given to come down from heaven and incarnate himself to become flesh. But in truth, it was the human CHILD that was BORN of the Virgin Mary as the fulfillment of the spoken word of PROPHECY that was made flesh who was GIVEN by giving himself of his own free Will to die on the cross.

 

2 John 1:9.

 

“Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, (Speaking of the ANOINTING that came to dwelling IN the FLESH of Jesus, the human Son of Almighty God the Father) has NOT God. He that abides (Or those of us who REMAIN) in the doctrine of Christ, (Again, speaking of the ANOINTING that came to dwelling IN the FLESH of Jesus, the human Son of Almighty God the Father) he has BOTH the Father AND the Son.”

 

In this verse. we clearly see that we must, without fail, believe in BOTH Almighty God the Father AND in his SON Jesus. Now to ME, if so be that the word of God truly taught the doctrine of the trinity, then this verse would have been the ideal place to ADD the Holy Spirit and clearly teach us that we must believe in all THREE rather than believing in only BOTH the Father and the Son. Please read the study called THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A PERSON! and the study THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER! for a deeper understanding that in truth the Bible only speaks of TWO different persons and NOT three different persons as the doctrine of the trinity dogmatically demands there to be THREE persons in one divine being called the ALMIGHTY God.

 

Jude 1:1.

 

“Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, AND preserved IN Jesus Christ, and called:”

 

And this verse of Scripture in Jude 1:1 agrees with Colossians 1:16 when it is correctly interpreted as “...IN him the ALL [Speaking of the ALL of whosoever BELIEVES] CONSIST”, as in, ALL are PRESERVED IN Jesus as we REMAIN in Jesus. For you see, the word “things” is NOT in the original Greek text. Also, if we would read all the phrases “God the Father” as “God, the FATHER” as opposed to God the Father, the first person of the Godhead Trinity God, then we would clearly SEE that the ONE God in ONE person is the FATHER and that Jesus was MADE a God AFTER the cross as the FULFILMENT of the “word” as being the word of prophecy and NOT as the Word which is “interpreted” as being God the Son, the second person of the Godhead. Please watch this short 5-minute video where a well-known Triniatarin Christian openly admits that the “Word” in John 1:1 is the SPEECH that came out from God’s own mouth that became flesh.

 

TRINITARIAN MICHAEL BROWN AGREES WITH UNITARIAN CHRISTIANS

 

Let us continue with this study to learn that the human Jesus was highly exalted to become a Deity after the cross, according to what the Bible itself teaches us in SIMPLICITY.

Again, Jude 1:1 teaches us that the FATHER is identified as being God.

 

Revelation 1:6.

 

“And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

 

Now, the phrase “to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” could be speaking of Yahweh the Father or the Son of God, or even both. The words forever and ever could be translated as from an age to an age which would be speaking of the 1000 year AGE in the world to come when Jesus will rule for Yahweh UNTIL the Father puts all his enemies under the feet of His Son.  And IF this is what the writer INTENDED his words to mean then the glory belongs to BOTH the Son and the Father seeing that ALL the glory goes to the Father that is given to His Son, Jesus.

In the four gospels, Jesus HIMSELF identifies the one TRUE God as being the FATHER. And Jesus identifies himself as the one being COMMISSIONED BY his God and Father. For you see, the Greek word translated as SENT means to be commissioned, and the word commission means that Jesus was GIVEN power and authority at his baptism which is WHEN God SENT His Son into the world to preach the kingdom. Please read John 17:3 where Jesus is praying to his God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God.

 

John 17:3.

 

“And this is life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND Jesus Christ, whom YOU have sent.”

 

In other words, Jesus is praying TO his God and Father for us to know the FATHER as being the ONE TRUE God, AND also to know That Jesus was SENT of COMMISSION BY the ONE TRUE God. Again, the literal meaning of SENT is COMMISSIONED which means that God gave his Son power and authority to accomplish the task of doing all his God and Father's WILL.

In 1 John 4:9-15, we can see in verse 9 that God sent or COMMISSIONED his only begotten SON, and in verse 14, we can see that the FATHER sent his SON which again clearly shows us that God is the FATHER.

 

1 John 4:9-15.

 

“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God SENT His only begotten SON into the world, that we might live through him.

10. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12. No man has seen God at any time. (And clearly, many men have indeed seen Jesus) If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.

13. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. (Here we know that God and His Holy Spirit are one and the same eternal divine being. And the Father gave us His Spirit BY giving Jesus all power and authority AFTER the cross to baptize us who believe WITH God’s Spirit, according to Matthew 28:18 which is after the cross)

14. And we have seen and do testify that the Father SENT the Son to be the Savior of the world. (Again, the word SENT means COMMISSIONED and Jesus was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit and POWER at his baptism. And even then, Jesus could do NOTHING OF himself saying that it was the Father dwelling IN him who did the works. Also, Jesus was MADE the Messiah or the Savior AFTER the cross, according to Acts 2:360

15. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the SON OF God, God dwells in him, and he in God.”

 

Please notice that nowhere in the word of God are we ever clearly and plainly taught that we must believe and CONFESS that Jesus IS the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God Yahweh Himself in the flesh. But we are clearly and plainly taught that we are to believe and CONFESS that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father, who SENT his SON out into the world to be the atonement for our sins. Also, please understand the Jesus did not become the ETERNAL Son of God until AFTER the cross. Please read the three-part study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOMES GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”

So then, the ONLY book in the New Testament that does not clearly and plainly identify the one true and only Almighty God as being the FATHER is 3 John, which does not even mention either God or His Son Jesus. But the same writer of 3 John also wrote 1st and 2nd John which does clearly identify the FATHER as being GOD.

Now that we have clearly established that the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, clearly and plainly identifies ONLY the FATHER as being God and the God OF his SON Jesus the Christ we can now clearly establish that the GODHEAD is speaking ONLY of Almighty God the FATHER ALONE and NOT three persons in the Godhead. And since there are only three verses of Scripture that have the word “Godhead” in them, then we will go ahead and closely examine those three verses before we close part 2 and section four of this study on the Deity of Jesus, ACCORDING to the Bible itself. Then we will continues section five in part 3 called “THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE!-3” So if you already know that the Godhead is the Father ALONE who DWELT IN His Son, Jesus then you can click on the link and go to prat 3 of this study in God’s word or truth. But if you are still seeing that the Godhead must be THREE persons in the one Godhead then please continue reading the Scripture evidence that the Godhead is ONE being in ONE person who alone is the Father.

 

Acts 17:28, 29.

 

“For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also HIS offspring.

29. For as much then as we are the offspring of God, (Speaking of Almighty God the FATHER as we have just learned in this study in God's word) we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.”

 

The word “Godhead” refers back to the word God, who we KNOW is speaking of the FATHER alone and NOT the SON OF Almighty God the Father. The writer is merely pointing out that we are never to think of God or the Godhead, the SUPREME DIVINE being as some sculpture, artwork, or image made of stone, wood, gold, or silver. And when you read the CONTEXT where Paul is teaching the pagans in Athens that their UNKNOWN GOD is the Almighty God of the Bible you will find the SINGULAR use of HIS offspring and not THEIR offspring in Acts 17:28. 

Trinitarian Christians love to use the PLURAL of Elohim in Genesis where God say let us make man in OUR image, but then they do NOT point out the SINGULAR use of God an HE made man in HIS own image in Genesis 1:27, the very next verse. Please read the study “GENESIS 1:26 LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE!”

And when you continue to read the CONTEXT  of the Godhead in Acts 17:29 then you will see in Acts 17:31 that God the Father will judge the world BY the MAN who He Himself ORDAINED.

 

Please read Acts 17:31,

 

“Because He (The Godhead in verse 29) has appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness BY that MAN whom He has ORDAINED; whereof He has given assurance unto all men, in that He has raised him from the dead.”

 

Now let us take a look at Romans 1:20 which teaches us that all created things are made from the UNSEEN or from that which is INVISIBLE. And we know that SPIRIT unseen and that Almighty God HIMSELF is SPIRIT who is called the INVISIBLE God, according to Colossians 1:15.

 

Romans 1:20.

 

For the invisible things OF Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are MADE, (In other words, the human Son of God was MADE in the IMAGE OF the invisible God, to become the FIRSTBORN of every CREATURE, according to Colossians 1:15) even HIS (SINGULAR) eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

 

Now, when we break down the word “Godhead” into two words we have “God” and “head” which can be seen or understood as God as being the HEAD. or the HEAD God over all other Gods that He Himself SET to become Gods under Himself. And we know that Almighty God the Father who is the one Godhead in ONE person who alone is the Father is the HEAD of Christ who was MADE the head of the church.

We also know that Jesus said that he CAME OUT FROM God which agrees with the word of prophecy CAME OUT FROM God and was MADE flesh. So then, one of the things MADE By the one Godhead in ONE person who alone is the Father is His human Son, Jesus. And Jesus was MADE to show us the Father and NOT that he himself IS the Father.

In other words, the things that are SEEN were NOT made from that which is SEEN, but rather, all creation, including the Jesus, came out from the INVISIBLE divine supreme being, which the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible always clearly and plainly identifies as being the FATHER alone. The literal translation of Romans 1:20-25 has the article “THE” clearly identifying God as THE ONLY true God, which always speaks of THE ALMIGHTY God, who alone is the FATHER as being the CREATOR alone. ALL things that were created CAME OUT FROM the MOUTH of God SPEAKING them INTO existence where they never existed before EXCEPT WITH THE God as the IMAGE He desired to bring forth into existence. And Gods; Son, Jesus was brought into existence where the Son of God never existed before in the eternity past. Please read the study called EPHESIANS 3:9-11 DID JESUS CREATE ALL THINGS?

And the third and only other time we see the word “Godhead” in the Bible is found in Colossians 2:9 where we are clearly and plainly taught that the fullness OF the Godhead DWELT IN the SON OF Almighty God as opposed to Jesus actually BEING the fullness of the Godhead HIMSELF. And I might also add that the FULNESS of the Godhead did NOT dwell in Jesus UNTIL after the cross which is when the one Godhead in ONE person GLORIED His human Son, Jesus by GIVING him the Divine nature of IMMORTALITY.

 

Colossians 2:9.

 

For IN him DWELLS all the fulness OF the Godhead bodily.”

 

P Now, if we use the Trinitarian “interpretation” of the word Godhead to mean THREE persons in the ONE God then that would mean that the Son dwelt IS the Son along with the Father and the Holy Spirit dwelt in the Son. And it makes no logical sense to argue that God the Son DWELT IN God the Son and God the Son was WITH God the Son when The Bible itself teaches us that Yahweh was WILL the one that He prophesied to come into existence. The prophecy in Isaiah clearly teaches us that when the prophecy is FULFILLED that the FIRST is WITH the last as opposed to the Trinitarian and Oneness Pentecostal “interpretation” that the FIRST IS that last or that Yahweh IS in Son. For you see, the verb “am” is NOT in the original text. So then, the I [am] he should read as I, he to show two separate beings working together WHEN the PROPHECY is fulfilled and NOT two beings in the eternity past.


Isaiah 41:4.  

 

Who has wrought and done it, calling (Or PROPHESYING) the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, AND with the last; I [am] he.”

 

Please read the following studies that will give you all the sound Biblical evidence proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus did indeed come out from the FATHER. All the studies that I have on why the doctrine of the Trinity is not sound Bible teaching are listed below in ONE link. I have another single link for all the verses use to teach that Jesus pre-existed and yet another single link to all the verses used to teach the Oneness Pentecostal doctrine. I will post these three links at the end of this study in God's word.

But for now, here are is an example of something being true, but where it is not THE WHOLE TRUTH when incorrectly INTERPRETED.

The word of God says that God has reconciled the WHOLE world unto Himself which means that in God's eyes, the WHOLE world or ALL of mankind is saved. That is to say, the WHOLE world is reconciled to the Father, in that, the one and only sacrifice for the redemption of mankind has been offered by God once and for all time.

In other words, the sacrifice for the sins of all of mankind has already been paid. This is true for God’s word is truth, yet, ALL men are not saved which is also a TRUE statement. But neither statement is THE WHOLE TRUTH, God’s TRUTH, that is to say, the WHOLE truth of the WHOLE word of God.

The TRUTH is that all of mankind has been reconciled to God, in that, God's part is complete or finished by Him providing His own Lamb, our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, it was Yahweh's plan of salvation that He himself CHOSE to use a MAN, a 100% human man having NO Divine nature DURING the days of His flesh to be the all-sufficient sacrifice to reconciled the world to Himself. But there is MORE that is needed in order for a person to OBTAIN this so great a salvation. For you see, each and every human being over the age of accountability has to come to this knowledge of the truth and receive this truth in their heart and confess it to the end of their salvation.

Also, another example is that you may be sick and it may TRUE that all the symptoms of sickness are present, but the TRUTH is that by the stripes of Jesus you are healed. In God’s eyes, you are already healed. In other words, the price, or provision for our healing has already been settled. And it is now up to each of us to come to the knowledge of this truth and confess it to the end of our salvation to be healed. That is to say, to the end of our receiving healing in our bodies. Are you seeing the difference between what is true and what is TRUTH? If so, then forget NOT all your BENEFITS for Yahweh forgives ALL your sins and Yahweh HEALS ALL your diseases as well.

Thanks for reading part 2 of this study to learn when Jesus became a Deity, according to the Bible itself. To read Part 3 of this study please click on the study “THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE! -3” And if you have not yet read part 1 of this study then please click on the link “THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE! -1”

Again, thanks for reading, and 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 that you may be having trouble seeing any other way than what you were dogmatically taught over and over for so long by your church denomination. But I assure you that each and every one of those verses of Scripture used by those who teach the doctrine of the Trinity and the pre-existence of Jesus 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 in the list below then please do not hesitate to write and let me know. Some Trinitarian and Oneness verses are included in other studies and they may not appear as an individual study. If there is a verse or verses that you seem to struggle with only being able to see the doctrine of the Trinity or the doctrine of Oneness when you read those verses then please search out the truth by listening to the other side of the controversy. No one can arrive at the truth by hearing only ONE side of the controversy. I only present you with ALL the evidence that I myself have found and leave it to you to decide what you want to believe.

 

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.

VERSES USED TO TEACH THAT JESUS PREEXISTED!


To me, the best way to know the ONE true God in ONE person is to know who Jesus TRULY IS according to the WHOLE word of Almighty God so please read ALL the studies under the heading >>>WHO IS JESUS ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE?<<< and you will see that the Bible itself teaches us that Jesus was CREATED by his God and Father. And if you have any questions related to the correct meaning of certain verses of Scripture on this subject of who Jesus is please read all the studies under the two headings >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<< and >>>VERSES USED TO TEACH THAT JESUS PRE-EXISTED!<<< These two headings have ALL the studies that I have on who Jesus truly is according to what the Bible itself teaches us in simplicity. I compiled these three headings to make it easy for my readers to send just one, two, or three links to those you desire to help understand what the Bible itself teaches concerning who Jesus is in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

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