The scripture for today, August 6 (8/6), is 1st Corinthians 8:6f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Yet for us, there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord [Word], Jesus Christ, through whom all things came [by a Word] and through whom we live [by the Word]. But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols.”
Was Jesus God? As God walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he warned, “The day you sin you will die.” They sinned and immediately their souls died.
What is death? Technically, it means separation. For the soul to be separated from God, it can only be one other place: With Satan. Satan told God, “You want them back? You pay my ransom demand.” What was the ransom? God’s death. So, God put his Words in a human body and walked with us on earth once again (John 1:1-2,14). Then God ransomed us with his blood (Acts 20:28).
(Of course, after Satan released mankind (though mankind can return to Satan if they choose), Jesus played a trick on Satan and came back to life ~ re-entered that body.)
Just as you have a mind/will, a body, and a spirit, God does too. Some object and say, “Was Jesus praying to himself?” and “Why did he have to obey his Father?”. Your words do not just take off speaking on its own. Your mind ~ your will ~ tells your lips what to say. Your lips have to obey your mind, your will.
What about Jesus being God’s Son? You create your words, you beget your words. Your words are your brainchild. But your brainchild is still you.
I have written an entire enlightening book on this called WAS JESUS GOD? It is fascinating and wonderful. And, yes, Jesus was God.
WAS JESUS GOD (WHY EVIL?) recalls the events in the Garden of Eden with the fall of mankind and the beginning of God’s plan to ransom us from Satan. It progresses from there to show all the natural ways Jesus was God, then our road today to follow him right into heaven. To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this: https://amzn.to/2yFYiM1
