Shedding the light of God’s Word on the subject of the Godhead and who Jesus really is. *Why the manifestation of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. *Does not alter the Oneness of God. *An explanation of the deity of Jesus Christ the almighty God come in flesh.
What the Bible teaches about the deity of Jesus.
Simply stated, the Bible doctrine of the Oneness of God of firms that;There is one God, and Jesus is that one God.
God is one.
God’s Oneness, or monotheism, is the simple doctrine of the Old Testament and God’s chosen people, the Hebrews. The Jews, those surrounded by cultures that worship multiple gods, we are entrusted with the unique and awesome truth of the one God.
*Ye are my Witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord: and beside me there is no savior.( Isaiah 43:10 and 11, Deuteronomy 32:39, 2nd Samuel 7:22, 1st Chronicles 17:27)
*For I am the Lord, I change not. (Malachi 3:6)
The Bible affirms God’s absolute,unalterable, an unqualified Oneness, God is not a plurality, but Supreme, eternal, self-existent one, and the invisible, yet personal, creator. Almighty God was incarnate in the New Testament is Jesus Christ the Lord.( Revelations 1:8, 17-18, 4:8,22:13)
*Thus saith the Lord the king of Israel, and his Redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:6)
*For thou art great, and does wondrous things; Thou are God Alone. (Psalms 86:10)
Hear,O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.
Jesus is God.
Jesus Is Not Another, separate, personal being in the godhead. Jesus is himself the almighty one. And it is, of course, impossible from more than one Almighty to exist. Jesus is God the only Lord and only savior, manifested in the flesh.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into Glory. 1st Timothy 3:16
Behold,a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God With us. Matthew 1:23
Looking for that blessed hope, and the Glorious appearing of the great Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13
Jesus, the son, wat the great God come as man. He did not reveal a tri- personal, shared godhead or use the new words Trinity or persons. As perfect man Jesus was visible, exact expression of God’s person the Supreme reaffirmation of the Oneness of God.
And Jesus answered him, the first of all commandments is. Hear O Israel;the Lord our God is one Lord. Mark 12:29
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding All Things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, set down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Hebrews1:3
Why so many mistaken views about Jesus?
The Biblical View
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name Shall be Called wonderful, counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting father, the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Jesus, a separate mere man, Prophet, or teacher? A separate subordinate and Angel like demigod? A separate second and co-equal person
Jesus is both God and Man.
Just as the Jewish leaders misunderstood and crucified Jesus, so others have mistaken or ignored the truth about Jesus. Many of the mistaken views about Jesus are related to the Incarnation. Jesus was a man, but not only a man, or a mere man. But Jesus was also a god In the Flesh.
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. Philippians 2 6 & 7
Jesus as God
1st Timothy 6:14-16
That they’ll keep this commandment without spot,unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only potentate, the king of kings, and Lord of lords. Who only has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto, whom no man has seen, nor can see, to whom be honor and power Everlasting. Amen.
Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever.
To the only wise God our savior, be glory and Majesty, dominion and Power, both now and ever. Amen.
Jesus as man
1st Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and Men, the man Christ Jesus.
Concerning his son Jesus Christ Our Lord, which is made of the seed of David according to the flesh.
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of Flesh and Blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same, that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil, for verily he took not on him the nature of angels, but he took on him the Seed of Abraham.
The manifestation of God as Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
God is self-existent, invisible one, the absolute one. He has manifested himself simultaneously, not successively, as father in the Old Testament, son in the New Testament and as both (God and man), and spirit in the indwelling of believers. The one God is revealed as Creator, Redeemer, and regenerator. One and the same God is Manifest, revealed, or made known, in creation, an incarnation, and in Pentecost.
The Bible never jeopardizes the Oneness by qualifying the word one.
To imply that God is actually a plurality, to imply and allow for shared deity or multiple persons in God, to imply Jesus is only part of God or a second person, to imply the spirit is only part of God or a third person.
