Friends, welcome back from my last video and article, when we looked at Philippians 2:6.
Before we move forward to Philippians 2:7,8, here is my CONCLUSION of Philippians 2:6.
But again on close examination, we saw how Paul was NOT teaching Jesus is GOD, Because Paul DID NOT SAY: (WHO WAS GOD).
1. We saw how Paul meant Jesus is just like His GOD, which is why he said: Who in the (form) of GOD.
As we read in a good translation saying: did not consider to be equal with God something to be grasped. Berean Literal Bible
3. If Jesus was already GOD, then that means God is in the form of himself, and therefor Paul would simply say Jesus is GOD.
4. Paul clearly DEFINES the difference between Jesus and GOD, by NOT telling us Jesus is GOD, but that Jesus is in the (FORM) of His GOD, in other words Jesus is just like His GOD.
5. Now here is the best, I have saved until last, which brings us to the final CONCLUSION, and undeniable fact, proving how Paul was NOT teaching Jesus was GOD.
Just by going to a few verses later in Philippians 2:9 - 11, notice what we read: 9 Therefore God also highly exalted Him, and granted to Him the name above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in the heavens and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Berean Literal Bible
Note, who is the person who has (highly exalted Him, Jesus)?
9 Therefore God also highly exalted Him, If Jesus was already the SAME one true GOD, as most wrongly teach, then GOD (highly exalted Him (SELF).
Notice how Paul said the person who has (highly exalted Him, Jesus), IS GOD.
As Paul said in verse 9 (Therefore God) also highly exalted Him, proves Jesus is not the person who is GOD.
And in Philippians 2:11, look at what Paul tell us: and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Did you notice a very SIMPLE fact there?
We DO NOT READ Paul saying: and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is (GOD).
And yet the TRINITY faith, and the Oneness Pentecostal faith believe and teach what is NOT taught ANYWHERE in the whole Bible, and say and teach WE MUST BELIEVE JESUS IS GOD TO BE SAVED.
Finally: We clearly see how Paul tells us who is GOD ALONE in the end of Philippians 2:11, by telling us, (that Jesus Christ is Lord.
And then Paul goes on to tell us who is GOD, by going on to say: to the glory of God the Father.
And as Paul has made this very CLEAR HERE, who is GOD, saying He is the Father, this simply proves Jesus CANNOT also be a TRUE GOD, because we would then have 2 TRUE GODS, CONTRADICTING the word of GOD, and the WHOLE BIBLE.
We finish with Romans 10:9, where we read NOTHING about how we MUST believe Jesus is GOD, but that we MUST believe the person who is GOD, is the person who raised Jesus out from the dead: Berean Literal Bible:
that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him out from the dead, you will be saved.
Please join me again in my next article and video, when we will move on to examine Philippians 2:7,8, and see how this is yet again another one of countless confusions and deceptions by most within Christianity.
