"Really? Is Jesus God? If he is, why did he say ,my God,my God why has thou forsaken me?. Who did he pray to?" Some have asked
How do you teach a term that is not in the Bible?
The word "Bible" is not even in the Bible 😁😁😁.
Like wise; Rapture, omnipresence, omnipotent, omniscient are not found in the Bible either.
This is a going to be a a very long thread.
This is where the confusion begins for many but it shouldn't be,especially when you realize that the Bible wasnt written with a western mindset.
"Son of God" doesnt mean God had a child in heaven whose name was Jesus and
SON OF GOD MEANS GOD IN FLESH.
The Bible says "No man has seen God at any time".
When God later decide for men to see him, he came in a flesh. That is Jesus.
That is what son of God means.
Let's backtrack a bit
You can't separate a man from his words,thoughts and expressions,can you?
So what happened to this "word" that was in the beginning, that was with God and was God?
And his name shall be called ;
Do you believe Jesus is wonderful counselor?
He then went on to say, "his name shall be called the prince of peace"
This Son is called the mighty God and the everlasting father !
Let's read what God himself has to say about Jesus
Does that mean there are three Gods?
And this is where it gets interesting.
The Lord thy God is ONE (Unity, not singularity).
Jesus said " I and my father are one"
"He who has seen me as seen the father "
"The LORD thy God is one"- Deut 6:4
There is only one.
One being (God) in three persons, each person has full possession of the Divine nature.
The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit. Each of them is God
Don't get confused now. Just stay with me.
Jesus said "As the father has sent me..." (John 20:21)
So Jesus is subordinate to the Father, while the Holy spirit is subordinate to Jesus
Well, there is subordination in The Trinity but it doesn't remove their "equalness".
By subordination I mean " one submits to the role of the other ".
And also say "not my will but your will, O God "
The concept of trinity is just to show that God is greater than we are and we should not fully expect to understand him.
In heaven you will not see Jesus, holy spirit and God the father as three separate beings!
They have not seen God either.
All they see are forms, expressions, voices and his Glory.
This was a question a dear sister asked me some days ago.
My answer : No he didn't. The Bible never contradicts itself.
"Jesus is seated at the right hand of God ", not the right hand SIDE of God.
There is no right hand side of God
E:G - that is my right hand man. It doesn't mean he is always at my right hand side.
What about God? He will be In Jesus and the holy spirit too in all totality.
And in this Godhead, because they are three different DIVINE persons, there is communication
Yet,when he was tired, he slept.
As God, he gave eternal life.
As man, he died.
It was also an example that we should rely on God through prayer.
If yes,let me know.
