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?
tells us: God is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man.
Some quick facts:
So the Glory Jesus had was the Glory of being the chosen Messiah, and the most important person in GODS mind purpose and plan, before the world existed.
And now Jesus had nearly fulfilled His purpose and the prophecies, and was coming to His completion, Jesus prayed He would now be glorified as the Old Testament Foretold.
in these last days (GOD) has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of (πάντα all things) and through whom He made the ages.
King James Bible
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
who, being the radiance of His glory and the exact expression of His substance, and upholding all things by the power of His word, through having made the purification of sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
WHERE did the Hebrews writer say: who being (GOD) and the exact (GOD)?
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?
1 Peter 1:20
WHERE does the Bible say Jesus was ALIVE with GOD before the foundation of the world?
When instead we read in 1 Peter 1:20 Jesus was: (foreknown) before the foundation of the world, but having been revealed in the last times for the sake of you.
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.
(εἰμί eimi I am) WHAT?
and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I and the Father are one.”
WHERE did Jesus say: I and the Father are ONE GOD?
Who is the liar, except the one denying that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one denying the Father and the Son. WHERE did John say; Who is the liar, except the one denying that Jesus is GOD?
As John said we MUST believe that Jesus is the Christ which means the (Anointed One, the Messiah), WHERE do we ever read (the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah) means GOD, or that Jesus is GOD?
If we believe Jesus is GOD, HOW are we NOT denying that Jesus is the Christ, when Christ is the SON of GOD and NOT GOD?
If we believe Jesus is GOD, HOW are we NOT denying the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:22?
I John 5:5
And Philip said: If thou believest with all thy heart, thou mayest. And he answering, said: I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
WHERE did eunuch say: I believe that Jesus Christ is GOD?
1 Corinthians 15:24
then the end, when He shall hand over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He shall have annulled all dominion, and all authority and power.
WHY did Paul say: when He (Jesus) shall hand over the kingdom to the God and Father, If Jesus were already the SAME GOD Himself?
If Jesus were GOD, WHY does Paul define the DIFFERENCE between Jesus and GOD by saying: to the God and Father 1 Corinthians 15:24?
And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”
WHERE did John say: And I have seen and have borne witness that this is GOD?
She says to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are the Christ, the Son of God, the One coming into the world."
WHERE did Martha say: Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are GOD?
Martha does NOT say: I believe you are God.
And Jesus does not say: You are wrong, I am GOD.
And Jesus does not say: You must believe, I am GOD.
1 John 5:7
King James Bible
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
WHERE does is say: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one? Because this is NOT in the oldest and best manuscripts, and was added in by dishonest Trinitarians.
Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’
WHERE did Jesus say: Whoever has seen me has seen (THAT I AM THE Father), or that (I AM GOD)?
Jesus was saying as He is the image of GOD, and that GOD was in Him, this is why Jesus said: Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
But these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in His name.
Now this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (US), the only true God?
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (YOU and I), the only true God?
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (ME and YOU), the only true God?
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (WE ARE), the only true God?
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (WE ARE THREE), the only true God?
WHERE did Jesus say: Now this is eternal life, that they may know (YOU FATHER ARE ME), the only true God?
We clearly see how Jesus EXCLUDED Himself from being the only true GOD, by praying to GOD saying (YOU THE ONLY TRUE GOD.
1 Corinthians 8:6
yet to us there is one God the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we through Him.
WHERE did Paul say: yet to us there is one God (WHO IS) the Father and Jesus Christ?
WHERE did Paul say: yet to us there is one God who is the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit?
WHERE did Paul say: yet to us there is one God who is (THREE PERSONS)?
“Behold, the virgin will hold in womb, and will bring forth a son, and they will call His name Immanuel” which is, being translated, "God with us."
WHERE did Matthew say: “Behold, the virgin will hold in womb, and will bring forth (GOD ALMIGHTY), and they will call His name (Yahweh) which is, being translated, “God with us.”
WHERE did Matthew say: “Behold, the virgin will hold in womb, and will (TRANSFORM GOD ALMIGHTY INTO A BABY), and they will call His name (Yahweh) which is, being translated, “God with us.”
The truth is Emmanuel is a Messianic title derived from Isaiah 7:14 which means God with us, just as GOD was WITH the prophet Isaiah and his people, in the same way GOD was WITH His Son Jesus and with His people, hence, God with us. Yahweh of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Psalm 46:7.
Jesus is (the Son of Man).
But now you seek to kill Me, a man who has spoken to you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.
1 Timothy 3:16
And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness: Who was revealed in the flesh, was justified in the Spirit, was seen by angels, was proclaimed among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
WHERE do the correct scriptures say: GOD was revealed in the flesh?
tells us who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom (no one has ever seen or can see). To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
Jesus says to her, "Do not touch Me, for not yet have I ascended to the Father. Now go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.'"
As Jesus has a GOD, how is Jesus that SAME GOD
1 Corinthians 8:5
Who in the (form) of GOD.
Matthew 4:5 to 6
