Scriptures by Berean Literal Bible, unless otherwise stated. Article by Simon Brown.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me, said Jesus the SON of GOD.
If GOD and Jesus were the same ONE GOD, they would simply have the same ONE WILL, and NOT two separate wills, as Jesus makes this very clear here in John 6:38, that He did GODS will and NOT His own.
HOW could ONE and the same GOD possibly have OPPOSITE or DIFFERENT wills?
As Jesus revealed He did have a separate and different will, as His did His Fathers will, confirming with what He always taught, that He was NOT that same GOD who would have the same will, but that GOD was His GOD, and that Jesus denied Himself to do His Fathers will.
IF Jesus were GOD who CANNOT cease to be GOD, HOW did Jesus CHANGE from being GOD into a MAN and the SON of MAN?

WHERE did the Hebrews writer say: who being (GOD) and the exact (GOD)?
Hebrews 1:4: having become by so much superior to the angels, as much as He has inherited a name more excellent beyond theirs.
HOW was Jesus an angel?
As Hebrews 1:4 tells us Jesus BECAME much superior then the Angles, proving Jesus was NOT an Angel.
For to which of the angels did God ever say: “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father”? Or again: “I will be His Father, and He will be My Son”?
WHY do Jehovah Witnesses believe and teach Jesus was Michael the Angel?
When Hebrews 1:5 tells us there are NO angels spoken of like Jesus was as the Messiah, a title which no angel ever receives from GOD, who was the King of Israel John 1:49.
“You are My Son; today I have become Your Father”?
HOW did Jesus PRE EXIST before the Angels, when Hebrews 1:5 tells us Jesus was Begotten AFTER the Angels?
Nathanael answered Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are King of Israel.”
WHERE did Nathanael say “Rabbi, You are GOD?
WHERE did GOD say: my SON has always existed?
HOW could Jesus be the second perfect MAN Adam, IF Jesus existed BEFORE the first MAN Adam?
because in Him (Jesus) were created (by GOD with Jesus in mind, purpose and plan from the foundations of the world Revelation 13-8, 1 Peter 1-20, Galatians 4-4), all things in the heavens and upon the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or lordships or rulers or authorities; All (NEW Colossians 1-13, Matthew 28:18) all things have been created through Him and unto Him.
I and the Father are one.”
WHERE did Jesus say: I and the Father are ONE GOD?
