Melchizedek was without Father without mother having no beginning of days and ending of life. He was called the King of Salem, the King of Peace. Jesus was born and died, of course God can not die he is the only immortal King. But Jesus is known as the Prince of Peace, and the prince is the son of a King.
No. 2) Jesus has a God. God is sovereign, He doesn’t answer to anyone. He has no one above Him that is God. Therefore, if Jesus (the Son of God) is God, then why does He speak of another who is God? And if Jesus has a God, then who is this God if Jesus Himself is God? Therefore, Jesus, was not “God the Son”, but He was the “Son of God”. He had a God and that God was His Father and that Father indwelt Him.
John 20: 17 to my God, and your God, Revelations 3:12 My God, My God, My God, my God Psalms 22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15: 34 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:46 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
No. 4) How was Jesus and God one? Answer: God is the Word and His Word is Life, Jesus manifest God’s Word, God’s God-Life. John 10: 30–38 I and my Father are one, My father dwelleth in me… John 14:8-10 you see me you see my Father, My Father dwells in Me, Matthew 12: 18 in whom my soul is…: I will put my spirit on him, Mark 1: 11 Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am… Matthew 17: 5 This is my beloved Son, in whom I am… Matthew 3: 17 This is my beloved Son, in whom I am… John 17:11 they may be one, as we are.John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, they also may be one in us: 22 the glory which thou gave me I’ve given them; that they may be one, even as we’re one: We are one with God by receiving His Glory. Glory =Greek “doxa” means opinion, values, judgment of God.
Jesus admits the Father is greater than He. This word Greater was translated from Greek word meaning not only “greater” but also “older”. When Trinitarian tells you that Jesus was co-eternal and co-equal with His Father, how can he when the Son himself denied he was. All sons have beginnings. Then how could the Son be the Eternal Father?
Isaiah 9: 6 (A) “For unto us a child is born”, if born has a beginning, therefore not eternal…if born someone before him to give birth to him. Born suggests pedigree and lineage, also suggest to bring forth. (B) unto us son is given: He’s a gift, giver is greater than gift. John 3:16 (C) government shall be upon his shoulder: Luke 1: 32 called Son of the Highest: Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (D) his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Now, let’s examine the last portion which deals with the name of this child, this Son that will be born: Wonderful, (is wonderful a name? No.) Counselor, (is counselor a name? No. It’s a title.) Mighty God, (is Might God a name? ) The everlasting Father, (Is Father a name? No!) The Prince of Peace ( Is Prince of Peace a name? No.) Now, there’s only one name of the Ever Lasting Father, the Mighty God, the Counselor, etc. That name is Jesus. What then does it mean His name shall be “called”. This word “called” was translated from the Hebrew word “qara” which means “To proclaim” His name shall proclaim the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father. Father’s name.
No. 6) Jesus came in his Father’s name, Father’s name is Jesus. John 5: 43, 10:25 I am come in my Father’s name,
Therefore the name of the Father was Jesus, the same name given to the Son. The Apostle Paul said, “God was IN Christ reconciling the world unto Himself”. He didn’t say God was Christ, but “God was In Christ”.
2 Corinthians 5: 19 “God was in Christ”, Paul is not teaching here that Jesus was the Fullness of the Godhead, but he is teaching that IN Him dwelt the fullness of the Godhead.
Colossians 2:9 in him dwells all fullness of the Godhead bodily. Peter did not teach that the Holy Ghost was Jesus, but witnessed God the Father spoke and said that He came down and dwelt IN His Son.
2 Peter 1: 17 God the Father, This is my beloved Son, in whom I John 10: 25 works I do in my Father’s name, bear witness of me.
No. Son of God could learn, could increase his knowledge. Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience Luke 2:52 Jesus increased in wisdom, stature, favor with God…
No. 9) Jesus was Obedient to his Father in all things. God can not be obedient to anyone outside Himself if He is the Only Omnipotent God. Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience John 5:17 My father worketh hitherto and I work John 5:19 The son can only do what he sees the father do first John 5:30 The son can of Himself do nothing John 8: 29 I do always those things that please him. John 10:18 This commandment received I of my Father John 10:25 the works I do in my Fathers name John 10:32 works I showed you from my Father John 12:49 Father gave me commandment what to say and do John 12:50 as my Father said to me so I speak John 14:31 The Father gave me commandment
No. 10) Jesus was made perfect. This means the Son of God could change in His stature, wisdom and maturity. Hebrews 5:9 being made perfect, if he was made perfect then he was not born that way. Malachi 3:6 & Hebrews 13:8God can not change Luke 2:40 the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him. Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, (maturity) and in favor (influence) with God and man.
No. 11) Jesus was not Omniscient, God is Omniscient. Isaiah 40:13, 14 Jesus received his knowledge from God John 8:28, of that day/hour knoweth no man … but my Father only Mark 13:32 of that day/hour knoweth no man…my Father only Matthew 24:36 “of that day/hour knows no man, my Father only Luke 2:52 Jesus increased in wisdom and stature John 5:19 the Son can do nothing but what the Father shows him John 8:28 My father hath taught me Mark 13:32 no man knows the day, neither the son, the father only
No. 12) The son of God is subject to God in all things. I Corinthians 15:28 the Son also himself shall be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. John 5:19 The son can of himself do nothing John 5: 30 The son can of himself do nothing John 8: 29 I do always those things that please him. John 10:18 This commandment received I of my Father John 12:49 Father gave me commandment what to say and do John 12:50 as my Father said to me so I speak John 14:31 The Father gave me commandment
No. 13) Jesus dependent upon Father to restore His Glory. John 17:5 O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. This tells us that he had it but stepped aside from it, and now is asking for it to be restored to Him again. Most notable is the fact that He stripped Himself of all privilege when he came to earth to take on the form of man, and emptied Himself out completely and took on the nature of a bond-slave. The Weymouth Translation says, “Although from the very beginning He had the nature of God, He did not reckon equality with God a treasure to be tightly grasped. Nay, He stripped Himself of His Glory, and took on Him the nature of a bondservant, a man like other men. As a bond slave, the main attribute expressed is submission to the will of the slave owner.
No. 14) Jesus was dependent upon the will of God His Father. Hebrews 10:7 I come to do thy will, O God Hebrews 10:9 I come to do thy will, O God. Luke 11:2 Thy will be done Luke 22:42 Not my will but Thy will be done Matthew 6;10 Thy will be done Matthew 26:42 Thy will be done Matthew 7:21 he that doeth the will of my Father Matthew 12:50 whosoever shall do the will of my Father John 5:30 I seek not my own will but the will of my Father John 6:38 I came down not to do my will but His will that sent me John 8:29 I always do those things that please Him
No. 15) God and Jesus are not one like your finger is one, John 5:32 two must bear witness, another beareth witness of me John 5:36 another bears witness of me. A greater witness, the father… John 5:37 Father himself, which sent me, has borne witness of me 8:17-18 the testimony of two me is true, I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me
No. 16) Jesus was dependent upon His Father for His Doctrine. John 7:16 My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. John 10:18 This commandment received I of my Father John 12:49 Father gave me commandment what to say and do John 12:50 as my Father said to me so I speak John 14:31 The Father gave me commandment
No. 23) Son received Life from Father. Father is author of Life. Luke 1:35 that Holy thing shall be called the son of God John 5:26 Father hath life in himself; He gave to Son to have life. John 6:57 I live by the father
No. 24) The Man Jesus is the mediator between God and Man. 1 Timothy 2:5 One mediator between God & man, man Jesus. Galatians 3:20 A mediator is not of One, but God is One. A mediator is a 3rd party in dispute between 2 others.
No. 26) Jesus Anointed Lord & Christ by God His Father. Luke 1:31-33 God shall give him his throne Rev. 3:21 On fathers throne John 5;22, 5:27 Father commits authority to son to execute judgment Acts 2:36, God hath made Jesus both Lord and Christ Acts 10:38, 10:42, God anointed Jesus with Holy Ghost, Acts17:31 God hath made this same Jesus Lord and Christ
No. 27) The Son of God is not sovereign, God is sovereign. John 5:17 Jesus accused by Jews for working on Sabbath because He healed on Sabbath. His answer is found in verse17. But Jesus answered them, My Father works hitherto, and I work.18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but He said that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Then answered Jesus unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things so ever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. Jesus tells the Jews he’s helpless unless the Father shows him what to do. He says, the Son can do nothing. Then the son cannot save, he cannot heal, he cannot redeem, he can do nothing, unless shown by the Father what to do. These are not the words of One who is Sovereign.
But God is Sovereign. God is Omniscient and Omnipotent.
1. One who is sovereign answers to no one. 2. One who is sovereign reigns supreme above all. 3. One who is sovereign is completely independent of all others.
Therefore, the Son of God is not Sovereign, God alone is sovereign. Jesus was completely dependent upon his Father to act and speak. He did not have his own words, works, nor doctrine, and he subjected His own will to his Father. It is God that is sovereign and He indwelt his Son who was dependent on Him in all things. God is Omniscient, God is Omnipotent, but his son is always dependent on His Father for everything including; speaking, acting, His doctrine, and even submitting His own will to the Father’s will.
Jesus said, “Father, I would that you take this cup from me, But not My will but Thine be done”, etc. Those are not words of a sovereign. All scripture speaking of the son show he is not sovereign. John 5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. Notice Jesus was dependent on God to show Him a vision of what to do.
John 5:21 For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom The Father wills.John 5:22 For the Father judges no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son
Romans 15:5 The God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
John 12:44 He that believes on me, believes him that sent me.
John 5:23 all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which hath sent him. When we honor the Son we honor the Father, because the Son only does what the Father instructs Him to do. Thus what we see is the Father working and the son working hitherto. When we give honor to the son we acknowledge the Father’s pre-eminent role, and the son’s role of complete obedience to His Father.
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, & shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 14:10b The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwells in me, he doeth the works.
Trinitarians use several arguments to explain how God and Jesus are one like your finger is one. Oneness only do the same, but with a different application. Whereas Trinitarians see at three individuals involved, they try to make them one like a triangle with three corners. But God and His son are one by God’s Word. God is the Word, and His Word was expressed in the person of His son. The following Scriptures Trinitarians use to try to explain a Trinitarian Godhead.
These scriptures can be broken down into two categories of argument. One, they believe that Jesus was in the form of God means that He is God. This they reason because they do not understand English. A Form or image is not the same as the original. And they do not understand God-life.
Bible teaches us God placed in the woman’s womb the complete body.
Hebrews 10:5 “A body hast thou prepared me” (ie: both egg and sperm)Hebrews 1:3 The man Jesus (the body, the son of God) was born with every attribute and characteristic that was in God. In other words, God infused his Divine DNA so to speak, (all that He was intrinsically into the gene pool of the son of God) and therefore that Body was a living breathing replica of the Father, but it was not the father, but in “the Image” of the Father. And if it is an image of it is not the Father Himself. This doesn’t suggest for one minute that Jesus the son of God is God the son. “image” means likeness or impressed character. Jesus was the physical expression of God-Life in the man. His character reflected all that is God or that God-Life could be expressed in a physical body. Therefore, Men could know God’s character e by looking at the life of Jesus. His life revealed holiness, righteousness, justice, love, mercy, loving-kindness, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. Jesus was godly; He was God-like in character and conduct. Jesus was not God Himself; He reflected God’s character in His life.
