Whenever you hear “Son of God” referring to the man-Christ Jesus what exactly do you think it meant?
I’m sorry if “my book of Bible stories” still directs your understanding… It would amount to being willfully ignorant!
When it comes to strife etc be child-like but when it comes to understanding, BE MEN!
Don’t let it ever cross your mind that “There is God Almighty, there is Jesus, then there is the Holy Spirit”
Like if you get to “Heaven” now, You will see God on the Throne, you will see Jesus on His right hand then the Holy Spirit [maybe on His left]
God has a son, He sent Him to die, He did it and came back to sit at the right hand of the Father… Just stop it already!
If you get to Heaven, you’ll never see God!
You will see just one Throne! Seated upon that Throne is the Man-Christ Jesus!
Jesus is “the image of the INVISIBLE GOD“
Colossians 1:12-15 KJV
Giving thanks unto THE FATHER, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his DEAR SON:
 In whom WE HAVE REDEMPTION through HIS BLOOD, [even] THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS:
 Who is THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, the firstborn of every creature:
Let me set the narrative of our Gospel straight here…
- [KJV] 1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the MYSTERY of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
God! Yes God becoming a man, the man Christ Jesus! That is the mystery
[a secret, something that needs to be explained]
Jesus would always say “My Father, the Father” And you think it’s another different entity?
He said in John 10:28-30 “I and my father are one” the Jews He spoke with understood perfectly what was said and got offended yet you think otherwise?
- [KJV] John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, MAKEST THYSELF GOD.
- [NIV] John 10:33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because YOU, a mere man, CLAIM TO BE GOD.”
- [NLT] John 10:33 They replied, “We’re stoning you not for any good work, but for blasphemy! YOU, a mere man, CLAIM TO BE GOD.”
This is just like “Clark Kent” owing up to that lady crushing after Superman that “Superman and I are one“
Or like the first time “Barry Allen” disclosed himself to his journalist reporter [crush] saying “The Flash and I are one“
That’s why He told Philip [John 14]
[NLT] John 14:9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER! So why are you asking me to show him to you?
Jesus by implication was saying “Philip I am the Father you can see [and will ever see], I am the image of the Invisible God
Before then Thomas asked…
[KJV] John 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
[KJV] John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
[KJV] John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth YE KNOW HIM, and HAVE SEEN HIM.
This is not strange it was prophesied before hand see it HERE!
[KJV] Isaiah 9:6 For unto us A CHILD IS BORN, unto us A SON IS GIVEN: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED Wonderful, COUNSELLOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace.
Wow! calling a son “The Everlasting Father“?
Who is this Eternal Father people? The man-Christ Jesus
Incase you’re wondering, who spoke above well Peter called it “The Spirit of Christ“
1 Peter 1:10-11 KJV
Of which SALVATION THE PROPHETS have ENQUIRED and SEARCHED DILIGENTLY, WHO PROPHESIED OF THE GRACE [that should come] unto you:
 Searching what, or what manner of time THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST which was in them DID SIGNIFY, when it TESTIFIED BEFOREHAND THE SUFFERINGS OF CHRIST, and THE GLORY THAT SHOULD FOLLOW.
So their prophesy about Christ is not of private origin, they were moved by the Holy Spirit—The Spirit of Christ! [2 Peter 1:20,21]
Even “the Comforter” “The Spirit of Truth” etc is still Christ!
[KJV] John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another COMFORTER, that he may ABIDE WITH YOU FOR EVER;
Do you remember His name in Isaiah 9:6?
[KJV] John 14:17 Even THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but YE KNOW HIM; for HE DWELLETH WITH YOU, and SHALL BE IN YOU.
In verse 6, Who’s “The Truth”?
Who did the disciples know?
Who was dwelling with them?
So who shall be in them?
[KJV] John 14:18 I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU COMFORTLESS: I WILL COME TO YOU.
Who will come above?
[KJV] John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but YE SEE ME: BECAUSE I LIVE, YE SHALL LIVE ALSO.
[KJV] John 14:20 At THAT DAY ye shall KNOW that I AM IN MY FATHER, and YE IN ME, and I IN YOU.
That speaks of UNION and our Identification already…
[KJV] John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
[KJV] John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If A MAN LOVE ME, he will keep my words: and MY FATHER will love him, and WE WILL COME UNTO HIM, and MAKE OUR ABODE WITH HIM.
That is the Indwelling of DIETY in mortal men which is a Reality of Sons!
Divinity in Humanity! This happens anytime the unsaved man believes the Gospel!
That fellow now house the Totality of God!
“I don’t feel it” you say? It’s a Knowing [Not a feeling]!
[KJV] Galatians 4:6 And BECAUSE YE ARE SONS, God hath sent forth the SPIRIT OF HIS SON into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
[KJV] 1 John 4:13 Hereby KNOW WE that WE DWELL IN HIM, and HE IN US, BECAUSE HE HATH GIVEN US of HIS SPIRIT.
So here it says whosoever shall confess the miracle of the incarnation [son of God]…
[KJV] 1 John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, GOD DWELLETH IN HIM, and HE IN GOD.
[NIV] Romans 8:9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of THE SPIRIT, if indeed THE SPIRIT OF GOD LIVES IN YOU. And IF ANYONE DOES NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, THEY DO NOT BELONG TO CHRIST.
Now you’re like “wow, this is becoming all complicated” And “So what exactly was Jesus doing” okay don’t get it twisted [love is a beautiful…]
Here is it!
[KJV] John 16:12 I HAVE YET MANY THINGS TO SAY UNTO YOU, but YE CANNOT BEAR THEM NOW.
And even the ones He said to them in figures of speech, they didn’t understand!
[NIV] John 16:18 They kept asking, “What does he mean by ‘a little while’? We don’t understand what he is saying.”
He continued in a more simpler way, hear the disciples
[NIV] John 16:29 Then Jesus’ disciples said, “NOW YOU ARE SPEAKING CLEARLY and WITHOUT FIGURES OF SPEECH.
So you’d understand that everything in John especially from John 13 [feet washing] to John 14 [some claimed it’s talking about mansion in heaven lol], to John 15 [vineyards, vine, husbandry etc] till this chapter 16 are mostly figurative!
They’re all pointer to facts about His Death, Burial, Resurrection And the Post-Ressurection Glory that should follow [His Ascension into our hearts (In dwelling of God in man)]
So the statement “I am God and there’s none beside me” is very Correct!
We don’t have 3 entities as God! [Just one God: The Father] who became flesh [Incarnation: Son of God] and now dwells in man (Ascension: The Spirit]
- Ephesians 4:3-6 KJV
Endeavouring to keep the unity of THE SPIRIT in the bond of peace.
 [There is] ONE BODY, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in ONE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING;
 ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM,
 ONE GOD and FATHER OF ALL, who [is] ABOVE ALL, and THROUGH ALL, and IN YOU ALL.
- 1 Corinthians 8:4-6 KJV
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] none other GOD but ONE.
 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
 But to us [there is but] ONE GOD, THE FATHER, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST, by whom [are] all things, and we by him.
- 1 Corinthians 12:12-13 KJV
For as the body is ONE, and hath many members, and all the members of that ONE BODY, being many, are ONE BODY: SO ALSO [is] CHRIST.
 For by ONE SPIRIT are we all baptized into ONE BODY, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been ALL made to DRINK into ONE SPIRIT.
Okay I’m Hacking your system and I’m over-clocking your CPU with information overload abi?
Let me stop here but reason along this line [Figurative or Literal?]
- John 4:24 says “God [is] a Spirit”
then another place [Genesis 1]
- it says “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters”
So that would mean that…
- “the Spirit of A Spirit is hovering over the face of the waters”
the tautology makes perfect sense to you right?
Would That statement in Genesis 1 be figurative or literal?
When you say “Son of God” And someone says “God gave birth to no son, neither was he born” Do you see they were right about that?
You were arguing blindly with them because you don’t know any better the meaning of the term “Son of God”
[KJV] 1 John 3:1 BEHOLD, what MANNER OF LOVE THE FATHER hath bestowed upon us, that we should be CALLED THE SONS OF GOD: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
[KJV] 1 John 3:2 BELOVED, NOW ARE WE THE SONS OF GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
- “Son of God” [God becoming a man]! The man-Christ Jesus
- “Sons of God” [God/Deity/Divinity now dwelling in mortal man/Humanity] The Believer
A believer can not afford to be ignorant!
When you are ask “Son of God” What does it mean?
- It refers to the Incarnation!
God becoming man! John 1:14!
What about “Sons of God”?
- It refers to Believers [by identification with the Ressurected Christ]
Hope it’s clear?
“Lambano” [receive] understanding today!
