A Study on The MYSTERY of the ETERNAL Jesus Christ as God/Man Resolved! – Profane Mystery Worldview Revealed

A Study on The MYSTERY of the ETERNAL Jesus Christ as God/Man Resolved!

It is very important that we remember that God the Father Appointed His Only Son {Jesus Christ} As Heir and Lawful Owner of ALL Things From the Beginning {Some ERA in ETERNITY – Hebrews 1:2}.

INTRODUCTION – The Penalty for False Faith – My Sisters and brothers.

This is NO JOKE!!! I CANNOT BE MORE SERIOUS IN MY EXPRESSION OF FAITH IN THIS PAPER! MY DEEP COMCERN IS FOR YOUR SALVATION AND ETERNAL FUTURE WITH GOD IN HIS KINGDOM IN THE THIRD HEAVEN AS A CHILD OF GOD!!! If the Christian Cults are NOT saved because they do NOT believe Jesus Christ to be God, ARE YOU SAVED BECAUSE YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HIM TO BE ETERNALLY MAN? Again THIS IS NO JOKE!
This study on Jesus Christ as ETERNALLY God/Man is my most complete to date.
I am going to start this study differently. I am going to talk about PRAYER and its many times a day necessity. I believe that we must believe and know as much as we can about Jesus. Jesus stated TWICE in John 8:24 that we would die in our sins IF we did NOT believe and trust Who and what He claimed Himself to be. I believe it is absolutely essential to personally know Jesus as well as we ABSOLUTELY can!!! We certainly do NOT want to be “left behind!”
Prayer is ABSOLUTELY essential to understand this study! We MUST continually be asking God for His KNOWLEDGE – what He knows so we can have His WISDOM for our ministry in the spiritual realm. BUT YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW THIS!!!
Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive. AMP
1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. 15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him. AMP
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always); 17 Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; AMP
You might become confused by my adding more words in these brackets {} to the already wordy AMP Bible. PRAY ON THIS!!! GOD IS NOT A GOD OF CONFUSION NOR WANTING YOU TO BE IGNORANT!!! May I suggest you take your Bible translation and place it along side of my study paper to compare the verses to see if my wordy AMP verses do make sense so that you learn from them! You should be using at least 2-3 different translations as you study to get a more complete overview of the Word!
I am finding a major misconception about Jesus in that way too many Christians who wrongly believe that Jesus Christ FIRST became Man at His physical birth by Mary. This is NOT true!!! He has ALWAYS BEEN God/Man from ALL of ETERNITY as I will Scripturally prove in the study!

 

PART 1 – YOU’RE Leveling the MIND Field Between Us and God.

As we all know, God makes a true statement about His abundant knowledge and ways versus man’s extremely limited knowledge and ways:
Isaiah 55:8-11 {God speaking} For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [2 Cor 9:10.] 11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. AMP
But the mind of man wants to believe a different picture:
Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God: Because your heart is lifted up and you have said and thought, I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are only man [weak, feeble, made of earth] and not God, though you imagine yourself to be almost more than mortal with your mind as the mind of God; AMP
Psalms 139:6 Your {God’s} [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me {man}; it is high above me, I cannot reach it. AMP
BUT I believe that if you know and ask God in prayer that He has provided a way to “level the MIND field” for us Christians. You do NOT have to do Yoga, take pills, or be mesmerized to have a better thinking mind having more spiritual knowledge or insights. Just pray to God and He will provide you with what you need:
2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not {has} given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. KJV
1 Corinthians 2:16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. [Isa 40:13.] AMP
Please know and understand that IF you PRAY to God, He will grant you the
“sound mind of Christ” to better help you navigate His thoughts and plans for your ministry during your lifetime.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome {beyond physical death}. AMP

 

PART 2 – My Wonder about ETERNITY:

Let’s start with ETERNITY, what I know about it, and what I speculate about it. Eternity is NOT an easy subject to comprehend in hardly any of its dimensions or contents! BUT because God inhabits ETERNITY {Isaiah 57:15} will help us to have some Scriptures to speculate about it. We MUST understand that God does NOT live in a vacuum. His Kingdom which is in the Third Heaven is in ETERNITY and way beyond anything in beauty and comfort that we can ever imagine.
The definition for ETERNITY IS it does NOT have a beginning NOR does it have an ending. I do NOT really believe it can be gathered up in any manner and accurately defined! But what we do know is that God’s Kingdom which is in the Third Heaven in ETERNITY because the Godhead resides in ETERNITY. We know that it cannot be seen. We do not know where it is really found. A possibility is that The Third Heaven in ETERNITY is way beyond the Second Heavens of the universe. We do NOT know for certain what it is made of. Is it much space. We do NOT know its area. It must have an extremely vast area because of what is disclosed in Scripture about God’s Throne and its area in God’s Kingdom in the Third Heaven. We also know that because God’s Kingdom is in the Third Heaven so are ALL of the amenities that go with it. USING WHAT IS DISCLOSED IN SCRIPTURE ABOUT ETERNITY WE CAN ALSO SPCULATE TO VENTURE AS TO WHO AND WHAT MIGHT BE PART OF ETERNITY.
Isaiah 57:15a For thus says the high and lofty One — He {the Godhead} Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place {in My Kingdom in the Third Heaven of ETERNITY},…..AMP
The Christian Cults and most other religions in the world do NOT believe nor accept that Jesus is ETERNALLY God. There are many of us Christians who believe that their {the cults} judgment will be ETERNAL separation from God in Hell! But there are also way too many Christians who also do NOT believe nor accept that Jesus Christ is ETERNALLY man. Should not their judgment be the SAME?
PLEASE PRAY AND THINK ABOUT THIS! If you are one of those who believe the preceding paragraph, I believe you are in trouble! This is a huge error in one’s faith!!! I do NOT want ANYONE to go to Hell!

 

PART 3 – Two PINNACLE and IRREFUTABLE Texts Revealing Jesus Christ as Being ETERNALLY God/Man.

Please follow the next Scriptures VERY carefully as we go along. Please remember that ETERNITY has NO BEGINNING nor ENDING. Where does Isaiah 57 tell us God lives and for how long has He lived there?
Isaiah 57:15a For thus says the high and lofty One {Godhead} — He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy {God}: I dwell in the high and holy place {of My ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven]. [Matt 5:3.] AMP
I believe the word “beginning” is just a reference point to start the beginning of whatever. We have to figure out when that “beginning” was. There is an ERA BEFORE all of the beginnings in Scripture which are relatively easy to ascertain when they were in history. But there are “beginnings” in the ERA BEFORE Genesis which occurred in ETERNITY and have no part in history from Genesis on. We have TWO PINNACLES and IRREFUTABLE texts that clearly explains Christ as ETERNALLY God and as always being ETERNALLY Man.
The Gospel of John 1:1-2 text declares Jesus as ETERNALLY God the Son of Man with the emphasis on Him as God. Jesus the Word uses 1 John 1:1-3 text which clearly explains Him ETERNALLY as Man! THESE TWO TEXTS ARE THE PINNACLE and IRREFUTABLE SCRIPTURES FOR THIS STUDY!!! If you are having trouble making sense of these texts, PLEASE let me know:
Let’s start with John 1:1-2:
John 1:1-2 IN THE beginning {in the ETERNAL ERA when NOTHING but the Godhead and His amenities existed} [before all time] was the Word ({#3} Christ), and the Word was with God {Who? The Father [#1], God the Son [#2], and God the Holy Spirit [#4] Who are all ETERNAL}, and the Word was God {God the Son of Man [#3]} Himself!!! [Isa 9:6 {Look up}.] 2 He {God the Son of Man} was present originally in ETERNITY with God {the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit}. AMP
John 1:14a And the Word (Christ {God the Son of Man}) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us: AMP
THE 1 John text declares Jesus as ETERNALLY God the Son of Man with the emphasis of Him as ETERNALLY Man. Invite God the Holy Spirit to help you if you cannot understand these two texts!!! If you do not/cannot understand them, what else might you NOT understand in God’s Word?
1 John 1:1-3 [WE {Christ’s former disciples} ARE writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him {Jesus Christ as Man} Who existed from the beginning {of what? – ETERNITY which has NO beginning}, Whom {as a Man} we have heard, Whom {as a Man} we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom {as a Man} we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and {as a Man} have touched with our [own] hands. 2 And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life, the eternal Life [in Him] Who already existed with the Father {from the beginning} and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers]. 3 What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the {ETERNAL} Father and with His {ETERNAL} Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah). AMP
I do NOT believe that I can add anything to these texts to clarify them! If you do not understand them, God help you!

 

PART 4 – God the Fathers Relationship to His Son:

Let’s move along. Let’s follow what God the Father does, says, and calls His Son:
Psalms 2:7-8 I will declare the decree of the Lord: He {God the Father} said to Me {Jesus Christ}, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten {NOT physically reproduced/begotten but anointed You special}. [Heb 1:5; 3:5,6; 2 Peter 1:17,18.] 8 Ask of Me {God the Father}, and I will give You {Jesus the Son} the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. AMP
Hebrews 1-2 IN MANY separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways God {the Father} spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets, 2 [But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son {Jesus Christ Who has complete authority over ALL things. HOW?}, Whom He {God the Father} appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things,
What ALL did Jesus the Son of God inherit and own?
Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the heavens and the {third} heaven of heavens belong to the Lord your God {The Son of Man Jesus}, the earth also, with all that is in it and on it. AMP

 

PART 5 – Using the Father’s Authority, What Was Jesus Granted?

As Jesus’ part of God the Father’s given authority, He made Him #1) creator of the universe:
Hebrews 1:2 also by and through Whom He {Jesus} created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order].
Colossians 1:16 For it was in Him {Jesus} that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. AMP
John 1:3 All things were made and came into existence through Him {Jesus}; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. AMP
Jesus is described as being the very image and representation of God the Father’s nature:
Hebrews 1:3 He {Jesus} is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty {God the Father} on high {on Their Throne in the Third Heaven},
Preceding with Hebrews 1, I believe the angels were created at the very beginning of creation {PLEASE REMEMBER THIS!!!}. Jesus is NOT a created being nor is He an angel. Nor do I believe Jesus to be “The Angel of the Lord.” HE IS ETERNALLY GOD/MAN!!!
Hebrews 1:4 [Taking a place and rank by which] He {Jesus} Himself became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name (title) {Yahweh/Yeshua} which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did [God] ever say, You are My Son, today I have begotten You [established You in an official Sonship Son again into the habitable world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him. 6 Moreover, when He brings the firstborn Son again into the habitable world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him. 7 Referring to the angels He says, [God] Who makes His angels winds and His ministering servants flames of fire; [Ps 104:4.]
God the Father identifies His ETERNAL Son by Name – O God and His character:
Hebrews 1:8 But as to the Son {Jesus}, He {the Father} says to Him, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever (to the ages of the ages {ETERNITY}), and the scepter {staff/stick} of Your kingdom is a scepter of absolute righteousness (of justice and straightforwardness). 9 You have loved righteousness [You have delighted in integrity, virtue, and uprightness in purpose, thought, and action] and You have hated lawlessness (injustice and iniquity). Therefore God, [even] Your God (Godhead), has anointed You with the oil of exultant joy and gladness above and beyond Your companions. [Ps 45:6,7.]
God the Father continues to identify God His Son and His works:
Hebrews 1:10-12 {God the Father speaking} And [further], You, Lord {Jesus}, did lay the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You {Who has NO beginning} remain and continue permanently {without ending describing Him as ETERNAL}; they will all grow old and wear out like a garment. 12 Like a mantle [thrown about oneself] You will roll them up, and they will be changed and replaced by others. But You {Jesus} remain the same, and Your years will never end {as always in ETERNITY} nor come to failure. [Ps 102:25-27.]

 

PART 6 – God the Father’s Relationship to the Angels:

God the Father’s testimony continues about the angels:
Hebrews 1:13-14 Besides, to which of the angels has He ever said, Sit at My right hand [associated with Me in My royal dignity] till I make your enemies a stool for your feet? [Ps 110:1.] 14 Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service [of God for the assistance] of those who are to inherit salvation? AMP
A short synopsis about the angels. I believe ALL of the angels were created at the very beginning of creation. A short time later Lucifer sinned {Ezekiel 28:16} and took with him a large number of sinful and some extremely wicked angels who are now kept in chains {Jude 1:6-7}. The ETERNAL Lamb of God {Jesus – John 1:29} Who was slain since the foundation of the world for the sins of the world {Revelation 13:8} was the Savior for the Angels. There are {good} angels {Hebrews 1:14} and wicked angels of Satan’s army and those who MUST be kept in chains {Jude 1:6-7}. AMP
I believe there are two angels who witnessed the salvation of some of their kind from the beginning, and they became our brothers in Christ {Revelations 19:9-10 and 21:8-9}. END OF HEBREWS CHAPTER 1.

 

PART 7 – HEBREWS CHAPTER 2 – First Part of Hebrews Chapter 2 – God and His angels.

Latter Part of Hebrews Chapter 2 – Christ in His Humanity:
Where, when, and through whom did the angels receive the “gospel message?
Hebrews 2:1-4 SINCE ALL this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away. 2 For if the message given through angels [the Law spoken by them to Moses] was authentic and proved sure, and every violation and disobedience received an appropriate (just and adequate) penalty, 3 How shall we escape [appropriate retribution] if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation [as is now offered to us, letting it drift past us forever]? For it was declared at first by the Lord [Himself], and it was confirmed to us and proved to be real and genuine by those who personally heard [Him speak]. 4 [Besides this evidence] it was also established and plainly endorsed by God, Who showed His approval of it by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will.
Who is God the Father speaking to if it was not to angels?
Hebrews 2:5 For it was not to angels that God subjected the habitable world of the future, of which we are speaking {– it was/is still to humans.}
Now enters Jesus as “the son of man” Who EMPTIED Himself as God the Son of Man to become totally and completely “the Son of Man.” The ONLY common component that I still see They have is God the Holy Spirit:
Hebrews 2:9-13 But we are able to see Jesus, Who was ranked lower than the angels for a little while {as a man}, crowned with glory and honor because of His having suffered death, in order that by the grace (unmerited favor) of God [to us sinners] He might experience death for every individual person. 10 For it was an act worthy [of God] and fitting [to the divine nature] that He {Jesus has}, for Whose sake and by Whom all things have their existence, in bringing many sons into glory, should make the Pioneer of their salvation perfect [should bring to maturity the human experience necessary to be perfectly equipped for His office as High Priest] through suffering.
11 For both He {God the Father} Who sanctifies [making men holy] and those who are sanctified all have one [Father]. For this reason He {Jesus} is not ashamed to call them brethren; 12 For He {Jesus} says, I will declare Your [the Father’s] name to My brethren; in the midst of the [worshiping] congregation I will sing hymns of praise to You {God the Father}. [Ps 22:22.] 13 And again He says, My trust and assured reliance and confident hope shall be fixed in Him {God the Father}. And yet again, Here I am, I and the children whom God has given Me. [Isa 8:17,18.]

 

PART 8 – Jesus EMPTYING Himself of His Divinity:

We now have Jesus EMPTYING Himself of His DIVINITY to become 100% Human! This is where I find emerging the FOURTH Person of the Godhead.
Philippians 2:5-12 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] 6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained {Christ EMPTIED Himself 100% of His DIVNITY to become 100% Man}, 7 But stripped {EMPTIED (NASV Bible) Notice that He did NOT mix His DIVINITY and His HUMANITY together} Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. 8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!
9 Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, 10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Therefore, my dear ones, as you have always obeyed [my suggestions], so now, not only [with the enthusiasm you would show] in my presence but much more because I am absent, work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ). AMP
We now find Christ Who we know was ETERNALLY God and we now know Who was/is also ETERNALLY “God the Son of Man.”
Heb 2:14-18 Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought and make of no effect him who had the power of death — that is, the devil — 15 And also that He might deliver and completely set free all those who through the [haunting] fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives.
16 For, as we all know, He [Christ] did not take hold of angels [the fallen angels, to give them a helping and delivering hand], but He did take hold of [the fallen] descendants of Abraham [to reach out to them a helping and delivering hand]. [Isa 41:8,9.] 17 So it is evident that it was essential that He be made like His brethren in every respect, in order that He might become a merciful (sympathetic) and faithful High Priest in the things related to God, to make atonement and propitiation for the people’s sins. 18 For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able [immediately] to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering]. AMP END OF HEBREWS CHAPTER 2

 

PART 9 – God’s Authority Given to Jesus:

God the Father’s inheritance and authority given to Jesus was as follows:
#1) Creator of the universe:
Hebrews 1:2 also by and through Whom He {Jesus} created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order].
Jesus received His authority as
#2) Savior of the world from His Father:
John 3:16 For God {the Father} so greatly loved and dearly prized the world {the earth including the universe} that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son {Jesus}, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. AMP
God the Father gave Jesus the authority to #3) Judge everyone!
John 5:22 Even the Father judges no one, for He has given all judgment (the last judgment and the whole business of judging) entirely into the hands of the Son {Jesus}, AMP

 

PART 10 – Jesus Giving His own Testimony:

PLEASE pay attention to Jesus’ testimony about Himself:
John 8:23 He {Jesus} said to them, You {the peoples of the world} are from below; I am from above. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world {but of My Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven}.
And sinful man’s ETERNAL consequence for NOT believing what and Who Jesus claimed about Himself:
24 That is why I told you that you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be — if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins. AMP
And just WHO did Jesus claim to be? Go back to the beginning of this paper –
Pages 6-7 to John 1:1-2 and 1 John 1:1-3 for what the Scriptures say about Him:
John 5:18 This made the Jews more determined than ever to kill Him {Jesus} [to do away with Him]; because He not only was breaking (weakening, violating) the Sabbath, but He actually was speaking of God as being [in a special sense] His own Father, making Himself equal [putting Himself on a level] with God.
John 10:33 The Jews replied, We are not going to stone You {Jesus} for a good act, but for blasphemy, because You, a mere Man, make Yourself [out to be] God. AMP
I want to make a note here about the Christian cults and the other religions who do NOT believe that Jesus IS ETENALLY God. Many Christians strongly believe ALL of these people will stand before Jesus for His judgement of them – they are going to Hell!!
IF that is the truth, the same argument can be leveled against the Christians who DO NOT believe that Jesus is ETERNALLY God the Son of Man – THEY ARE ALSO going to Hell! THIS IS NOT A PRETTY FUTURE SCENARIO!!!

 

PART 11 – Jesus as ETERNALLY Man:

Let’s study Jesus as being ETERNALLY MAN!!!
Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you are little to be among the clans of Judah; [yet] out of you shall One come forth {Jesus Christ} for Me Who is to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth have been from of old, from ancient days (eternity). [Gen 49:10; Matt 2:5-12; John 7:42.] AMP Please notice the AMP version includes the word ETERNITY in it’s translation. Remember that God inhabits ETERNITY – Isaiah 57:15 page 5 of this booklet.
We KNOW that Jesus’ physical cousin John was born 6 months BEFORE Jesus’ physical birth. How could John make the following testimony about Jesus that he did? Also, how many years is John’s testimony AFTER Jesus’ birth?
John 1:15 John testified about Jesus and cried out, This was He of Whom I said, He {Jesus} Who comes after me has priority over me, for He was before me. [He takes rank above me, for He existed before I did. He has advanced before me, because He is my Chief.] AMP
John 1:30 This is He {Jesus} of Whom I {John} said, After me comes a Man Who has priority over me [Who takes rank above me] because He was before me and existed before I did. AMP
We need to study something called Christophany – God talking to man face to face in the Old Testiment. There are about 50 such incidences in the Old Testiment. Jesus said that NO MAN has ever seen God the Father except Him:
John 1:18 {Jesus speaking}No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known]. [Prov 8:30.] AMP
In these appearances that took place on the earth, I believe it was Jesus Who traveled between His Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven and earth. There are about 50 such Christophanies in the Old and New Testament. For these occurrences to take place, Jesus would have to descend to earth and ascend back to His Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven, and He did this in His human form.
Acts 1:9-11 And when He {Jesus} had said this, even as they were looking [at Him], He was caught up, and a cloud received and carried Him {physically} away out of their sight {back to His Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven}. 10 And while they were gazing intently into heaven as He went, behold, two men {angels} [dressed] in white robes suddenly stood beside them, 11 Who said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing into heaven? This same Jesus, Who was caught away and lifted up {physically in human form} from among you into heaven, will return in [just] the same way {He will do this by ascending AND descending} in which you saw Him go into heaven. AMP
Is Jesus Christ ETERNALLY the Son of God/God the Son? Is He ETERNALLY God the Son of Man? Your future {our continuing life with God in Heaven or our continuing life and ETERNAL SEPARATION from God in Hell} depends upon what YOU truly believe!!!
And sinful man’s consequences for his wrong beliefs of NOT believing Who Jesus claimed about Himself:
Romans 9:20-21 But who are you {sinful man}, a mere man, to criticize and contradict and answer back to God? Will what is formed {created} say to Him that formed {created} it, Why have you made me thus? [Isa 29:16; 45:9.] 21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same mass (lump) one vessel for beauty and distinction and honorable use, and another for menial or ignoble and dishonorable use? AMP
Isaiah 45:9 Woe to him who strives with his Maker! — a worthless piece of broken pottery among other pieces equally worthless [and yet presuming to strive with his Maker]! Shall the clay say to him who fashions it, What do you think you are making? or, Your work has no handles? [Rom 9:20.] AMP
To clearly see the TRINITY in Scripture, – God the Father, Lord Jesus, and the Spirit of God is supported by the following texts:
Corinthians 8:6 Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source of all things and for Whom we [have life], and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through and by Whom are all things and through and by Whom we [ourselves exist]. [Mal 2:10.] AMP
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, 20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body. AMP
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person {redeemed Saint} [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. AMP How man Persons of the Godhead live in you?
Romans 8:9 But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God]. [Rom 8:14.] AMP
Let’s correctly acknowledge the COMPLETE Godhead that truly lives in ALL true believers:
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you? AMP
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him {My God the Father, God the Son, Jesus God the Son of Man, and Our Spirit will live in that TRUE believer IF we love Jesus and keep His Word!}. AMP
Now put ALL of these texts together, and what do you get? If you were going to build a unit of some kind, you would need an architect, a general contractor, and a manager for the facility.
God the Father is the planner/architect for all parts of His creation:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. AMP
Jesus Christ is the Master builder:
John 1:3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. AMP
And God the Holy Spirit is the occupier/tenant of your saved body in the universe:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, 20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body. AMP
If you add these things together, I believe you have the “workings” of the Godhead in His creation:
Romans 11:36 For from Him {God the Father} and through Him {God the Son} and to Him {God the Holy Spirit} are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him {God} be glory forever! Amen (so be it). AMP

 

CONCLUSION – SURPRISE! SURPRISE!
THE GODHEAD LIVES IN US TRUE BELIEVERS!!!!!!!!!!

DO/DID YOU KNOW THIS?
ARE YOU LIVING YOUR LIFE LIKE THE GODHEAD LIVES IN YOU?????

I believe Christ’s second coming could be at any MOMENT! I also believe that the Christian Church is in extremely horrifically BAD spiritual shape!!! Too many so-called Christians are PLAYING church but NOT LIVING DAILY church! IF Christ where to came back NOW, I am afraid that many of my so-called sisters and brothers might NOT be saved.

I very strongly believe that JESUS CHRIST HAS BEEN “SHORT CHANGED”  PARTICULARLY DURING MODERN HISTORY!!! By “SHORT CHANGED”  I mean that the Christian Church with its theologians, pastors, teachers, and leaders have NOT given Jesus Christ His true and full recognition as to Who and What He really is/was BEFORE time and down through history! YES, there are pastors and teachers who are correctly revealing Him, BUT certainly not on the local level!  This Study on Jesus being ETERNALLY God AND ETERNALLY Man which I believe I have Scripturally proven has shown me the diversity among the beliefs of us so called Saints. What I do not understand is, “Why do not us Saints truly want to know Jesus as personally and completely as possible?” Could it be pride?

I SURE AM GLAD THAT I AM NOT GOD!!! BUT I KNOW THAT JESUS IS UP TO JUDGING US FAIRLY!!!

AMEN and AMEN!
