Title: WHO JESUS SAYS HE IS/WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS HE IS 2
Tags:
Blog Entry: Picking up where I left off yesterday: Part 1 BIBLE VERSES THAT INDICATES JESUS IS NOT GOD THE CREATOR:  Continued: 8.  Matthew 6:9:  Our Father which art in Heaven. (He prayed to the Father who was/is in Heaven.) 9.  Matthew 27:46:  My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Would not have been able to say this, if he is God the Creator.) 10. John 17:21-23:  That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.  May they also be as so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.  May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. (Jesus uses the term "to be one."  It's accomplished  through the relationship of two beings.  Believers are to model their relationship (become as one) after the relationship of God and Christ (as God and Christ are one).  "To be one"  is not the same as "one and the same.) 11. 1 Corinthians 15:27-28:  For he "has put everything under his feet."  Now when it says that "everything" has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.  When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him, who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all. Paul is saying here, that God put everything under Christ, except himself (God).  Instead of Jesus Christ doing the ruling, God rules all things through him (Christ).  We need to remember: "through him all things were made.".) 12. Hebrews 1:3:  The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being. (Jesus is representing HIMSELF,) 13. Hebrews 4:15 (compared with James 1:13):  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet without sin. (It tells us, that Jesus, too, has been tempted, but He is without sin.) James 1:13:  When tempted no one should say, God is tempting me.  For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt. (Jesus was tempted by the devil, in every way, but God, Himself, cannot be tempted.  This explains why Jesus said, "don't call me good, none are good, only God.) 14. Hebrews 5:7-9:  During the days of Jesus` life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his submission.  Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him. This tells us that Jesus had to walk by faith and obedience in order to achieve his perfection.  By doing this, Jesus "became" the source of salvation.  Etenal salvation.) This ends Part 1.  Part 2 starts tomorrow, which explains what the Bible will say about who Jesus is.  And at the end, I will make a comment on what my beliefs are.
