  1. Jesus asked the question, "Whose Son is the Christ?". He as God Christ was pointing out He was Gods Son. That is the Christ is Gods Son. Son in this manner as many are called Sons=>the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world
  2. Did you not read the words of the head of the body of Christ? While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42“What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” “The son of David,” they replied. 43He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says, 44“ ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.” ’e 45If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.

    Not in the same manner you do. I believe the Father is God. I believe the Son is the exact expression of the wisdom and power of the Father for in Him the Spirit of the Father dwells without limit. I believe the Spirit of God is the Fathers very own Spirit therefore Divine.
  4. Jesus himself should know . You know He's not Josephs Son. So He must have been appointed to the line of David by the Father.
  5. Well Jesus is not the Son of David He is the Son of God. While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42“What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” “The son of David,” they replied. 43He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says, 44“ ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.” ’e 45If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions. The Son of God means the Son of God What about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? In regard to the Son He is ALL that the Father is The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, "Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God."
  6. I think though heaven and earth move at the command of the Son even so He abides within the framework of the Fathers Will. Its His Fathers Will to raise us up on this earth on the last day. Jesus won't be making life on other planets etc etc.. I think the Father will do all that He is pleased to do. He swore by His own name a promise to Abraham and to His servant David. In Christ Jesus both those promises are fulfilled. Jesus was appointed to the line of David and so Davids line will never end and Jesus will raise up all the children of Abraham and Abraham, Issac and Jacob to dwell in the Land God granted to Abraham's offspring as reckoned through Jacob.
  7. I think Paul is clearly speaking of the Son who was. Before all things;the firstborn of all creation; the creation made through Him;in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell in Him The scripture states the fullness was pleased to dwell in Jesus. So you believe the Jesus who was didn't possess Gods fullness? It was given after or as He became the Son of Man? Don't you believe He was begotten before all worlds; true God from true God? As in being that fullness in Himself. Jesus has His own spirit, "Father into your hands I commit my spirit" There is only one Spirit Fathers promise In these last days I will pour out "my Spirit..." Jesus in regard to the Spirit=>...for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Jesus in regard to the Spirit=>the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me Jesus in regard to the Spirit=>the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit Jesus sends He received from the Father. Acts 2 Only the Father calls the HS His Spirit. Jesus speaks as if that Spirit is another Father in regard to Jesus=>"Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put "my Spirit" on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.
  8. As I have stated all along Jesus the Son is all that the Father is and in that context is God The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, What does this mean to you? "the fullness was pleased to dwell in Him"
  9. Paul For he “has put everything under his feet.”c 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. 28When 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.
  10. From the Father through the Son. Other then that I dont' know

    Perhaps you should reread my answers. Jesus's spirit was formed was formed by His God. The fullness that was pleased to dwell in Him was not created. Jesus's spirit is not divine. The fullness (divinity)that dwells in Him is the Father. In that He is the exact expression of the wisdom and power of the Father (God) Jesus is the firstborn of all creation. He has always been the Son. The Father has always been His God. It is the Father who glorifies Jesus. Jesus and the Father are One as Jesus taught. Is Jesus God? He never dies yes, He is all that the Father is. no, He has always been the Son. About the Son - Hebrews You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. The Son The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.

    He is Gods firstborn. The fullness of the divine Spirit that dwells in Him was not created. Jesus's spirit was formed by His God. The fullness was pleased to dwell in Him and in that Jesus is the exact image of the wisdom and power of God. God in that context. And He and the Father are One in that manner. Jesus still is the word of life or word of the Father. It was the Father living in Him doing His work.

    Jesus=>Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, AND Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. Last time I checked Jesus was the head of the body of Christ. Since Jesus calls the Father the one true God if He always was and always was God how then do you believe in One God for Jesus stated on the cross, "Father into your hands I commit my spirit" Its clear to me the "Son" who was, (His Spirit), was in the tent of the "body" God prepared for Him. The Father was still living IN Him. Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a "body" you prepared for me;

    As I stated Jesus has always been the Son. Jesus is not the Father as you would agree. Yes, Jesus is all that the Father is. We differ on how that is so. Jesus the firstborn would have a beginning at some point in History before the world began. I would state the Son who was(His Spirit) was in the tent of the body God prepared for Him. I do not see the Spirit of God as a separate distinct person from the "Father" but as the Fathers own Spirit. I see One God the Father and One Lord Jesus Christ. And the One Divine Spirit whose is of the Father.

    The NT does state Jesus is the firstborn. Jesus does have his own Spirit, "Father into your hands I commit My Spirit" The bible does state Jesus is the wisdom and power of GOD. Both the Son and the Father agree that the Father is the God of the Son. The Father as stated -psalm 45:7 Jesus stated as you already know. I see a difference in all the fullness of the Deity or Godhead dwelling In Jesus versus Jesus being that fullness. But since the fullness was pleased to dwell in Jesus Jesus is all that the Father is. The exact representation of the wisdom and power of God. That does not paint in picture to me that Jesus always was and alway was God. It does seen to indicate that Jesus's being was defined by the Father and His Spirit was formed first by the Father. And yet at the same time shows Jesus as the image of the invisible God. That the divinity in the Son is not His Spirit but the Spirit of His Father. The Spirit without limit was given to the Firstborn as well as all authority. Its quite clear the creation was made through the Son. So I think Arius got a bad deal in regard to the relationship between Father and Son. Not sure of His position on the Spirit of God. I see the HS as the very Spirit of God the Father. In the last days I will pour out My Spirit... Jesus did define oneness Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. In these last days God has spoken to us by His Son. That agrees with Jesus that He spoke the words the Father commanded Him to state and that those words belonged to the Father. according to acts 2 the Spirit Jesus sends He received from the Father . Jesus saw that Spirit as the Fathers Matt 10:20 -...for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, .... So to me Is Jesus God? Is answered thus: He never dies yes, He is ALL that that the Father is no, he has always been the Son Jesus has everything He needs to give life -Authority and the all the power and wisdom of the Father. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. Jesus never dies just as those in Him will never die. I did note the word SON and who gave Him such authority Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
