WHAT DOES TITUS 2:13 TRULY MEAN?


SPELLING EDITED


WHAT DOES TITUS 2:13 TRULY MEAN?


What does Titus 2:13 TRULY mean in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God? Some Christians say that Titus 2:13 proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus is Almighty God. Let us read Titus 2:13 from the King James Version.


Titus 2:13.


“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God AND our Savior Jesus Christ;”


Trinitarian Christians argue that the GREAT God and our Savior Jesus Christ are one and the selfsame GREAT God. In other words, Trinitarian Christians INTERPRET Titus 2:13 as follows.


Trinitarian INTERPRETATION of Titus 2:13.


“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God WHO IS our Savior, Jesus Christ;”


 However, the Scripture says “...the great God AND our Savior Jesus Christ”. So then, there is more than just the one “Trinitarian” interpretation of this highly controversial verse of Scripture. Yes, the conjunction “and” could be interpreted as the one true God as being BOTH the great God AND our Savior Jesus Christ, as in, being the self-same GREAT God. But, in the light of all the other verses of Scripture in the New Testament that ALWAYS clearly identifies the one true God as being the FATHER then I, myself, interpret Titus 2:13 as the great God as being the FATHER and our Savior Jesus Christ as being the SON OF Almighty God the Father who ALONE is the GREAT God.

CLEARLY, Paul would not write to Titus and to us, the church, teaching us two different things that CONTRADICT each other. Let me explain what I mean. Trinitarian Christians argue what they call the Grandville Sharp’s rule if interpretation which to ME, is a big smokescreen and a total waste of time for me to try and explain why Sharp’s rule does NOT apply is EVERY case. All we need to do is simply read Titus 1:4 because God's word does not contradict itself.


Titus 1:4.


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


God is clearly identified as being the FATHER just as the Father is always identified as the ONE TRUE God throughout the entire New Testament. Then we see the Greek word “kai” that is correctly translated to the English word “AND” to show us that the Father is NOT one and the self-same being as our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior. So to ME, since Paul clearly identifies God the Father as being a SEPARATE being from our Lord Jesus Christ then Paul would NOT turn around in the next chapter to CONTRADICT himself by saying that the GREAT God is one and the self-same being as our Savior Jesus Christ in Titus 3:13. Let us read the last part of Titus 1:4 from the LITERAL translation.


Titus 1:4b for the LITERAL translation.


“...from God Father AND Lord Jesus ANOINTED THE Savior of us.”


Almighty God the Father CHOSE to save those who believe in the MAN Jesus, the ANOINTED of God. Surely the Apostle Paul KNOWS who the one TRUE God is. And, again, Paul would never contradict himself. So please read Acts 17:22-31 which is were Paul teaches us who the ONE person in the Godhead truly is.

Acts 17:22-31.


“Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, You men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 

23.  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom, therefore, you ignorantly worship, HIM (The ONE God is ONE person NOT THEM the one God in three persons) declare I unto you

24.  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands; 

25.  Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing HE gives to all life, and breath, and all things; 

26.  And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 

27.  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he is not far from every one of us: 

28.  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.  Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead (Which simply means the SUPREME deity or the HEAD God over all other Gods) is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 

30.  And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commands all men everywhere to repent: 

31.  Because HE (Still speaking about the ONE Godhead in ONE person) 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.” 

 

Yes, the FULNESS OF the Godhead DWELT IN the BODY of Jesus AFTER the Son of MAN, Jesus, was GLORIFIED BY the ONE TRUE God who alone is Almighty God the FATHER. And Almighty God the Father DWELT in Jesus after the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. Jesus could do NOTHING in and of himself. It was God dwelling IN Jesus who did the works just that same as it is God dwelling in us, who are Christians, who does the work of healing. This is what ALL the Apostles of Jesus taught us in the Scriptures. It was AFTER the cross and resurrection of Jesus that the Son of MAN was highly exalted and GIVEN all power and authority by his God and Father. See Matthew 28:18 and Philippians 2:9-11. God also COMMITTED all judgment to the Son of MAN, Jesus BECAUSE he was the Son of MAN.


Please read John 5:26,27.


“For AS the Father has life in himself; so has HE GIVEN TO the Son to have life in himself; (The LITERAL translation reads “For even as the Father IS HAVING life in himself thus he GIVES ALSO to the Son life TO BE HAVING in himself”)

27.  AND has GIVEN him authority to execute judgment ALSO, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN.”


NOT because Jesus is God the Son. And not even because Jesus is the SON OF God. But rather it was BECAUSE Jesus was the Son of MAN who THROUGH the power of the eternal Spirit dwelling in him overcame sin and laid down his own life of his our free HUMAN will is WHY Almighty God HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of MAN, Jesus to be the second to the highest authority never before given to anyone.

The doctrine of the Trinity is in ERROR by claiming that Jesus eternally existed as God the Son, the second person of a so-called Trinity Godhead. Jesus BECAME the eternal Son of God AFTER the cross and GLORIFICATION of the Son of MAN, Jesus of Nazareth. Please read the studies “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME THE ETERNAL SON OF GOD?” and WHAT DOES FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE TRULY MEAN?”

Also, I might add that Jesus said there is no one GOOD but ONE and that is God.


Mark 10:18.


“And Jesus said unto him, Why call you ME good? There is none good but ONE, that is, God.”


So, CLEARLY, Jesus never called himself God. Otherwise, Jesus CONTRADICTED himself. Jesus worshiped that same ONE God that the Jews worshiped. 

Also, Jesus said in John 10:30 that the Father is GREATER than him. So, CLEARLY, the GREAT God in Titus 2:12 is speaking of Almighty God the Father who Jesus also called the ONLY TRUE God in John 17:3.


John 17:1-3.


These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; GLORIFY your Son, that your Son also may glorify you

2.  As YOU have GIVEN him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as YOU have given him

3. And THIS is life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE GOD, AND Jesus Christ, whom YOU have sent.”


The Greek word translated as “sent” means COMMISSIONED. And the English word commission means to give POWER and authority to someone to accomplish the task that they are given to do. In other words, if we want to receive eternal life we must believe that the Father is the ONLY TRUE God AND that Almighty God the Father COMMISSIONED or ANOINTED the Son of MAN, Jesus with the Holy Spirit and power, according to Acts 10:38. To say this another way, we must believe that Jesus is the CHRIST, the ANOINTED of God and that he is the SON OF the living God which the New Testament clearly identifies as being the FATHER. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?” But for now, I want you to know and understand that there is yet a THIRD interpretation of Titus 2:13 which I believe is the best interpretation that should satisfy all the Greek scholars who are truly seeking the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


SECTION TWO


There is also a third interpretation of Titus 2:13 that agrees with the entire word of God having no contradictions with any other verses in the Bible. And this third interpretation is that there are some errors made in translating Greek into English. The Greek word that is translated as glorious in KJV is being translated as an adverb modifying the verb “appearing”. And in other English translations, the English word “glorious” is used as an adjective modifying the noun “appearance”. However, in the original Greek text, both the Greek word “doxa” and the Greek word “epiphaneia” are being used as NOUNS. So the LITERAL translation reads as “the appearance of the GLORY OF THE GREAT God.”

Also, the Greek word “kai” that is translated and “and” also means “EVEN”.

So Titus 2:13 literally reads as “the appearance of the GLORY of the great God, EVEN, our Savior Jesus Christ.” In other words, our Savior Jesus Christ IS the GLORY OF Almighty God the Father who alone is the great God.


Here is a LITERAL translation of Titus 2:13.


“Anticipating the happy expectation even ADVENT of the GLORY of the great God  EVEN Savior of us Jesus ANOINTED.”


Here is the literal translation combined with the King James translation of Titus 2:13.


“Looking for our blessed hope, EVEN, the appearance (Or even the ADVENT) of the GLORY OF the great God, EVEN our Savior Jesus Christ.”


Again, Jesus Christ IS the GLORY OF the great God. And the great God is Almighty God the Father. Now let us read some verses of Scripture where Jesus is called the GLORY OF God. Almighty God glorified the Son of man, Jesus, for His own glory. All the glory goes to Yahweh, the God, and Father of Jesus.


2 Corinthians 4:6.  


“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the GLORY OF God in the face of Jesus Christ.”


Also, remember that the Greek word “kai” that is translated as “and” also means “EVEN”.


Acts 2:55,56.


“But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and SAW the GLORY OF God, and (Or EVEN) Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 

56  And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.”


So then, when Stephen was being martyred heaven opened and he saw the GLORY OF God, EVEN, Jesus standing of the right hand of God. And then Stephen repeats what he saw saying, Behold I SEE the heavens opened and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Jesus is, indeed, the GLORY OF the Father.


Please read 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 LITERAL translation reads “...the Father OF THE GLORY…” which teaches us that THE GLORY was BEGOTTEN OF Almighty God the Father.


Here is the LITERAL translation of Ephesians 1:17.


“That the God of the master of us, Jesus anointed, the Father OF THE GLORY may be giving to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.”


The pronoun “him” refers back to THE GLORY which refers back to Jesus anointed. So then, Almighty God is the FATHER OF THE GLORY which is his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus IS the GLORY OF the Father. Jesus is the LIGHT of the world.


Revelation 21:22,23.


“And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 

23.  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the GLORY OF God did lighten it, and (Or EVEN) the LAMB is the light (Or the LAMP) thereof.” 


Jesus is the GLORY OF God. Jesus is the LIGHT OF God. Jesus is the LAMP that will lighten the temple of God. Now let us read John 1:14 to see WHEN the Son of man, Jesus, was GLORIFIED by Almighty God the Father.


John 1:14.  


“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his GLORY, the glory AS of the ONLY BEGOTTEN begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” 


The disciples of Jesus beheld his GLORY of being glorified of the Father AFTER God raised Jesus from the dead to BECOME the ONLY begotten Son of God. Please read the following verses so you can see that the Bible ITSELF clearly teaches us that Jesus BECAME the eternal Son of God AFTER the cross at his resurrection to be glorified BY Almighty God the Father. John 13:31,32 takes place at the last supper right before Jesus is crucified.


John 13:31,32.  


“Therefore, when he (Speaking of Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus) was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. (Or now is the time for the Son of man to be GLORIFIED) 

32.  If God is glorified in him, God shall also GLORIFY him IN himself, and shall straightway GLORIFY him.”


Now let us read Acts 3:13 which is AFTER Jesus was crucified and resurrected from the dead.


Acts 3:13.  


“The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has GLORIFIED his Son Jesus; whom you delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate when he was determined to let him go.”


So then, before the cross, Jesus was NOT YET glorified but AFTER the cross and the resurrection of Jesus we nao see the GLORIFIED Son of man, Jesus. You see, being glorified means to be BEGOTTEN from the dead and then given the divine nature of IMMORTALITY. And right now, Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son of God. Jesus is the only one that God has glorified thus far but the Bible teaches us that Jesus if the FIRSTBEGOTTEN among MANY brethren. When Jesus comes we, as faithful Christians, will be GLORIFIED as well. We will receive our new GLORIFIED immortal bodies just like Jesus has now. Please read the studies “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME THE ETERNAL SON OF GOD?” and “WHAT DOES FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE TRULY MEAN?” 

But for now, please read Acts 13:20-33 which clearly teaches us that the Son of man, Jesus BECAME the ONLY begotten Son of God on the very day of his RESURRECTION from the dead when God GAVE the Son to be having LIFE in himself EVEN AS the Father has always had life in himself.


Acts 13:29-33.


 “And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a sepulcher. 

30.  But God raised him from the dead: 

31.  And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people. (Speaking of the forty days after the resurrection and glorification of Jesus shown himself alive never more to die again by many infallible proofs)

32.  And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 

33  God has fulfilled the same unto us their children, IN THAT he has raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, You are my Son, THIS DAY have I BEGOTTEN you



And we are LOOKING for the APPEARANCE of the GLORY OF the great God, EVEN, our SAVIOR Jesus Christ whom Almighty God the Father has GIVEN all the power and the authority to give us who look for him the same divine nature of IMMORTALITY that Yahweh GAVE to the Son of man, Jesus.


Please read  John 5:19-30.


“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, 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 does the Son likewise. (By faith, whatever Jesus saw his Father do in a dream or in a vision the Jesus obey his God and Father to do what God was leading him or telling his Son to do. Jesus plainly states that he could do NOTHING OF HIMSELF and other verses teach us that it was the Father HIMSELF DWELLING IN the Son of man who was the one doing the mighty works that people saw Jesus doing)

20.  For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that HIMSELF does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 

21.  For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he will. (In other words, God set joy before Jesus to endure the cross and one of those joys was God promising Jesus that he would be given him ALL power and authority EVEN to resurrect the dead and give whomsoever the Son choose to have eternal life)

22. FOR (Or BECAUSE) the Father judges no man but has committed all judgment unto the Son

23.  That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him. 

24.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 

25.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 

26.  For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself

27.  And has given him authority to execute judgment also, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN. (NOT because Jesus is God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God. And NOT because Jesus was the pre-existing Son of God. But BECAUSE Jesus was the Son of MAN! That is the very reason that Almighty God highly exalted and GLORIFIED the Son of MAN and GAVE Jesus all power and authority to JUDGE and give eternal life to whomsoever the Son judges to be WORTHY to receive the divine nature of immortality)

28.  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 

29.  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 

30.  I can of my own self do NOTHING: (Everything that Jesus has and is was GIVEN TO him BY Almighty God the Father who ALONE is the one TRUE God who highly exalted the Son of MAN, Jesus to BECOME a God under his God and Father) 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.”

 

Please read Isaiah 44:1-8 which, to me, is Yahweh the Father introducing his Son Jesus as the God of the whole earth who will rule FOR Yahweh for 1000 years in the world to come. And then, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-28 Jesus will step down from being the God of the whole earth at the END of the Millennium and commit the kingdom back into the hands of his God and Father.


Isaiah 44:1-8.


“Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: 

2.  Thus says the LORD that made you, and formed YOU from the womb, which will help you; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and YOU, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. (The word Jesurun means UPRIGHT. So who did Yahweh choose that is UPRIGHT? Well, to me, it is Jesus)

3  For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring: 

4.  And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the watercourses. 

5.  One shall say, I am the LORD'S, and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob, and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel. 

6.  Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, AND his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; (In other words, Thus says Yahweh the Father the eternal King, I am the first and the last, AND thus says Yahweh the Son of of MAN, Jesus, who Almighty God the Father called and highly exalted to rule and reign FOR Yahweh the Father during the 1000 year reign of Jesus, who also says I am the first and the last, the word made flesh) and beside me there is no God. (The Hebrew word translated as the English word “beside” me also means APART FROM me or WITHOUT me there is no God. Clearly, Yahweh the Father is THE God OF Gods and Jesus is a God under and subject to his God and Father, Yahweh the eternal King. Yahweh the Father spoke his word and his spoken word of prophecy became flesh. And then the Son of MAN, Jesus OBEYED all his God and Father’s will even to die on the cross for the sins of the world. And for that reason, According to Philippians 2:8-11, the ONE TRUE God, Yahweh the Father, HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of MAN, Jesus, to become a God who will rule FOR Yahweh the Father for 1000 years in the world to come. And this passage of Scripture, to me, is Yahweh the Father introducing his Son Jesus as the God of the whole earth who will be ruling FOR Yahweh during the Millennium)

7  And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order FOR ME, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. 

8.  Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? You are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? (Or more precisely, is there any God APART form me or WITHOUT me setting him up to rule FOR me?) Yea, there is no God; I know not any.”


Then in the following verses in Isaiah 44:9-20 Yahweh talks about all the false idol gods that are not gods at all. Then in Isaiah 44:21-28 Yahweh goes back to talking about his MESSIAH and how he botted out the sins of Israel. Yahweh introduces Cyrus as his SHEPHERD over Israel. And when we continue reading into the next chapter of the book of Israel we can clearly see that Cyrus is a type of figure of Jesus. Let us read Isaiah 44:21-28 along with Isaiah 45:


Isaiah 44:21-28.


“Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for you are my servant: I have formed you; you are my servant: O Israel, you shall not be forgotten of me. (This is a prophecy of the second coming of Jesus which is when God will not forget Israel and turn to deliver Israel a SECOND TIME during the Millennium)

22.  I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, your transgressions, and, as a cloud, your sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed you. 

23  Sing, O you heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, you lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD has redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel. 

24.  Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am the LORD that makes ALL things; that stretches forth the heavens ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth BY MYSELF; (Clearly, Yahwe ALONE and by himself is the creator of everything and every person including his Messiah, Jesus, whom Yahweh FORMED in the womb of the Virgin Mary)

25.  That frustrates the tokens of the liars, and makes diviners mad; that turns wise men backward, and makes their knowledge foolish; 

26.  That confirms the word of his servant, and performs the counsel of his messengers; that says to Jerusalem, You shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, You shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: (Speaking of rebuilding the waste places during the Millennium)

27.  That says to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up your rivers: 

28.  That says of Cyrus, He is my SHEPHERD, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, You shalt be built; and to the temple, Your foundation shall be laid…

Isaiah 45:1-15. 

...1. Thus says the LORD to his ANOINTED, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; 

2.  I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: 

3.  And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you mayest know that I, the LORD, which call you by your name, am (The English word “am” is NOT in the original Hebrew text) the God of Israel. (Yahweh is talking to Cryus saying to Cyrus that Cryus may know that Yahweh is calling him by his NAME the God of Israel. In other words, Yahweh highly exalted the Son of man, Jesus, to become the God of the whole earth, the God of Israel for 1000 years while Jesus will rule FOR Yahweh during his Sabbath rest)

4.  For Jacob my servant's sake, (Jacob is a type or figure of the church) and Israel mine elect, I have even called you by your name: I have surnamed you, though you have NOT known me. (This verse proves the Jesus did NOT pre-exist in eternity past as a second person at the side of God. Jesus did not know Yahweh until he was taught about Yahweh as a small child during the days of his flesh)

5.  I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: (Or more precisely there is no God APART form me. Or WITHOUT me there is no God FORMED) I girded you, though you have not known me: 

6.  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. (Or that the people may know that all their false idols gods are not gods at all. Only I Yahweh have the power and the authority to set up a God over you who will rule FOR ME. That they may Know that I have set you, Jesus as my King of kings and Lord of lords to be called the God of the whole earth and that Satan has been cut down and DETHRONED as the god of the earth)

7.  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace and create evil: (The Hebrew word “bara” also means to CUT DOWN. So then, this verse should read as Yahweh alone FORMED the LIGHT, speaking of Jesus, and Yahweh CUTS DOWN darkness, speaking of Satan being dethroned as the god of this present world by being bound in the bottomless pit for 1000 years during the Millennial reign of Jesus as the God of the whole earth. Yahweh makes peace and CUTS DOWN evil) I the LORD do all these things. 

8.  Drop down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: (This is speaking of the second coming of Jesus coming with his saints to set up his kingdom on the earth) let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it. 

9.  Woe unto him that strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashions it, What makes you? or your work, He has no hands? 

10.  Woe unto him that says unto his father, What beget you? or to the woman, What have you brought forth? 

11.  Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons and concerning the work of my hands command you me. 

12.  I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. 

13.  I have raised HIM up in righteousness, (Still talking about Cryus the ANOINTED SHEPHERD of Yahweh who is a type or figure of Jesus, the Messiah) and I will direct all his ways: HE shall build my city, and HE shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, says the LORD of hosts

14.  Thus says the LORD, The labor of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto YOU, and they shall be yours: they shall come after you; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto you, they shall make supplication unto you, saying, Surely God is IN YOU, and there is none else, there is no God. (Or there is no TRUE God like Yahweh and all our gods are false gods who are not gods at all)

15  Verily you are a God that hides yourself, O God of Israel, the Savior.”


The pagan heathen idol worshipers will bow down to Jesus during the Millennium and say to Jesus, surely God is IN YOU and our idol gods are NO gods. Truly, you are a God that is NEAR O God of Israel the Savior. The prophecies about the Messiah teach us that he would be CALLED the mighty God, the God of the whole earth and God our righteousness. Even the nation of Israel desired a king like all the other nations. Israel told Moses that they did not want to hear Yahweh’s voice anymore. So Yahweh BEGET him a human Son whom high made a King over all the kings of the earth so that Israel would have a God that is NEAR them which they could SEE. Jesus is the IMAGE OF Yahweh and the FULNESS of Yahweh dwells IN him.


Colossians 2:8-10. 


Beware lest any man spoils you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. (The doctrine of the Trinity is a tradition of men that took three centuries to form and even then many Christians were martyred because they would NOT believe in the man-made doctrine of the Trinity. Please watch this video on the HISTORY of the Trinity BEFORE Nicea 325 AD)

9.  For in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (Speaking of AFTER Jesus was GLORIFIED to receive the divine nature of Yahweh which was after the cross. Yes, God dwelt in Jesus during the ministry of Jesu after his baptism to be ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit and power but the FULNESS of the DEITY did not dwell in the Son of man, Jesus as his own until AFTER God raised him from the dead and GAVE the Son of man immortal life to be having in himself even as the Father has always had immortality in himself) 

10.  And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”


Let us read one more verse of Scripture in closing the study in God’s word on the TRUE meaning of Titus 2:13, the GLORY OF Yahweh the Father being Jesus our Savior.


Please read Philippians 2:8-11.  


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

9.  WHEREFORE (Or for this very REASON that the Son of MAN, Jesus, BECAME obedient unto death even to die a cruel shameful death on the cross) God also has HIGHLY EXALTED him, and given him a NAME (To be called Yahweh our righteousness, the God of the whole earth) which is above every name: (Except being above Yahweh HIMSELF, according to 1 Corinthians 15:20-28.)

10.  THAT (Or so that) AT the NAME of Jesus (Speaking of the new name that Yahweh gave to the Son of MAN, Jesus AFTER the cross and his EXALTATION to GLORY) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 

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


Everything that Jesus is and has was GIVEN TO him for the GLORY OF the Father. All the glory goes to Yahweh who is the God and Father OF Jesus our Savior. And we are looking for the GLORY OF the great God, EVEN our Savior Jesus the Christ. For you see, we MUST believe in BOTH the GREAT God the Father who alone is the ONLY TRUE God AND hos SON who Yahweh commissioned to become our Savior.

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