“Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? . . . What is His name, and what is His Son’s name if thou canst tell . . . ?” Proverbs 30:4
There has been a great deal of question recently on the Deity of Christ, if . . . as the Scripture clearly states, He is also the Son of Almighty God ! Can these two Truths be reconciled, without harm to either one ?
“And God said, Let there be . . . !” Genesis 1:1-3
An interesting note –
The word for “God” in Hebrew is Elohim which literally means Mighty Ones (plural), or the Supreme, Exceeding God – “Deity” !
When we read the word “God” in the Greek New Testament, it is the word “Theos” which literally means Deity, or exceeding Divinity !
And then we hear Christ Jesus say, ” I and My Father are One . . . !” John 10:30
And this is just His assurance that He is in verity the One which spoke from the mount to all Israel . . . and through every prophet
“Hear, O Israel, the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) your Elohim is One LORD !”
We listen as Jesus (Yehushua) reveals this Truth in even greater Light to us under the new Covenant,
“And when they deliver you up, take no thought before hand, how or what ye shall say: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak . . . . For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you !”
For “the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship (honour and obey) The Father in Spirit and in Truth (Verity) ! . . . . for the Father seeketh such to worship Him !” John 4:23
“For we know that the Law is spiritual: but we are carnal, sold under sin . . .” Romans 7:14 & 5:12, 19 & 6:16
And it is for this reason that we “must be born (begotten) again !” “For that which is born of the flesh is flesh; but that which is born (begotten) of the Spirit is spirit (spiritual) . . . . Marvel not that I say unto thee,
“Believest thou not that I Am in the Father, and the Father (which is Spirit) is in Me? the Words that I speak unto you . . . they are Spirit, and they are Life ! . . . I speak not of Myself: but The Father which dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works !”
“Believe Me that I Am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works sake !” John 14:10-12 ref: John 6:63
“Say ye of Him, Whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world . . . Thou blasphemest; because I said, I Am the Son of God? If I do not the works of My Father, then believe Me not ! But if I do, though ye believe not Me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that The Father is in Me, and I in Him . . . !” John 10:36-38
“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank Thee, O Father, Lord (King) of heaven and earth, because Thou
Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in Thy sight ! All things are delivered (entrusted, given over) unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father, neither knoweth any man the Father, except the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him . . . !” Matthew 11:25-27
“Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? For he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father ?” John 14:7-9
“When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I Am . . . and that I and My Father are One !” John 8:28 & 10:30
Now we step back to that day when Moses was tending his flocks at the mount of Sinai (Horeb), and he saw a bush burning with fire, and yet not being consumed. And the Voice spoke to him out of the midst of the fire, saying . . .
“Put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground !” Exodus 3:1-6
And the LORD said to Moses, I Am the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob. And He commanded Moses to go unto Pharoah and tell him, “Let My people go !”
Then Moses said unto God (Elohim), “Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh? . . . Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel (those to whom the Promise of Redemption was made with an Oath), and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is His name . . . ?
What shall I say unto them? And God (Elohim) said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel (those that are of faith), I AM hath sent me unto you . . . !” Exodus 3:10-15
I AM is present tense – it is this revelation of The Almighty’s character which He is seeking to impress upon all people, especially in this last and final generation !
And it is this Truth that He has revealed to us in His Son Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac). which literally means . . . Yehuwah’s Salvation and the Anointing, Yehuwah saves the Anointed !
For “all the Promises of God are in Him, both Yea, and in Him, Amen !” because He Is both the Alpha and the Omega, He Is the Author and the Finisher of our faith ! ref: II Corinthians 1:20 & Hebrews 12:1-2
He is “the Word that was made flesh, and dwelt among us . . . !” John 1:14
“And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I Am the LORD (3068 – Jehovah, Yehuwah) ! And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty (El’ Shaddai), but by My name JEHOVAH was I not known to them . . . . And I have established My Covenant with them . . . and I have remembered My Covenant (Oath, Promise) !
Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I Am the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage . . . And I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments !
“By the which Will (predetermined, decree, purpose, will or testament), we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all . . . !” Hebrews 10:10-20
And this “will“, the Oath, the Covenant, and the Promise was filled full to every one who will simply believe,
“And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying, Blessed be the LORD God (Yehuwah Elohim) of Israel; for He hath visited and Redeemed His people, And hath raised up an Horn (Mighty One) of Salvation for us in the house of His servant David !
As He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, which have been since the world began, saying . . . That we should be saved (delivered, rescued, set free, healed and restored whole) from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us (including Satan, and every evil spirit and fallen angel’s power). . . . !
To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy Covenant; the Oath which He sware to our father Abraham . . . that He would grant unto us, that we being delivered (present tense) out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear ! . . . because perfect love casts out all fear . . . In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life !” Luke 1:67-80
“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 (Elohim), The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace !” Isaiah 9:6-7
“And the counsel of Peace shall be between Them Both !” Zechariah 6:13
“For this is the Covenant (Oath, Promise) that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put My Law (instructions in righteousness, My character) in their inward parts, and I will write It in their hearts . . . !
‘. . . written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living God (Christ Jesus); not in tables of stone, but in the fleshy tables of the heart !’ II Corinthians 3:3
. . . And I will be their God (Elohim – Mighty One), and they shall be My people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying Know the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah): for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD.
For I will forgive (give in exchange for) their iniquity, and I will remember (mark, keep record of) their sin no more . . . !” Jeremiah 31:33-34 & ref: Psalm 130:1-8, Isaiah 43:25, Hebrews 10:17-18
And “then will I sprinkle clean Water upon you, and you shall be clean . . . . with the washing of the water of the Word . . . Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you ! . . . from all your filthiness, and from all your idols will I cleanse you ! ref: Ephesians 5:26 & John 15:3
And a new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you . . . Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus ! . . . and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh . . . and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us . . . ! ref: Philippians 2:5 & John 1:14
“For the Spiritof the Lord GOD (Adoni Yehuvee’) is upon Me; because He hath anointed Me to preach Glad Tidings
To proclaim the acceptable year* (time of acceptance, favour) of the LORD ! . . . to appoint (an inheritance) unto them
“That the Blessing of Abraham might come on* the gentiles through Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac – Yehuwah’s Salvation and Anointing); that we might receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith . . . !” Galatians 3:14
“And we declare unto you the Glad Tidings, how that the Promise which was made unto the fathers (Abraham,
“For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted,* and in the day of Salvation (Yesh-oo-aw – Isaiah 49:8) have
“And we are crucified with Christ . . . buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through faith in the operation (effectual working) of God, Who hath raised Him from the dead !
Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like (just) as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of The Father, even so we also should rise and walk in newness of Life !” Galatians 2:20, Colossians 2:12 & Romans 6:3-6 & ref: Romans 8:11
For “ye are the children of the prophets, and of the Covenant (the Oath) which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham . . . And in thy Seed shall all nations of the earth be Blessed !
‘. . . and He saith not unto seeds, as of many; but as of One, And to thy Seed, which is Christ . . . and if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise . . . !’
Unto you first God, having raised up His Son Jesus (Yehushua), sent Him to Bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities (perversities, mischief) . . . !” Acts 3:25-26 & Galatians 3:16
“I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you . . . !” John 14:17-18
“Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of The Father the Promise of the Holy Spirit, He hath shed forth (poured, gushed out) this which ye now see and hear ! . . . Then Peter said unto them, Repent (turn around), and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins . . . and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit ! For the Promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God
“And Moses said unto the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) . . . See, Thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and yet Thou hast not let me know Whom Thou wilt send with Me (ref: Exodus 23:23 & 32:34 – The Angel) . . . ?
Yet Thou hast said to me, I know thee by name, and thou hast found grace in My sight. Now therefore, I pray Thee, if I have found grace in Thy sight, shew me now Thy Way . . . I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life ! . . . that I may know Thee . . . . And He said, My Presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee Rest !
‘In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them ! In His love and in His pity, He redeemed them; and He bare them, and carried them all the days of old ! . . . But they rebelled, and vexed His Holy Spirit . . .’ Isaiah 63:9-10
And Moses said, I beseech Thee, shew me Thy Glory. And He said, I will make all My goodness pass before thee,
And then He said, Thou canst not see My Face: for there shall no man see Me and live ! and the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by (beside) Me, and thou shalt stand upon a Rock. And it shall come to pass, while My Glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the Rock, and I will cover thee with My hand while I pass by.
And I will take away Mine hand, and thou shalt see My back parts (shadow): but My Face shall not be seen !” Exodus 33:12-23
“For if the ministration (service) of death, written and engraven in stones (ref: Deuteronomy 27:1-8) was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses, for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away . . . .
Now the LORD is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is Liberty (freedom, freeborn as a citizen,
“For God (Theos), Who commanded the Light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light (revealing) of the knowledge (knowing) of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac) !And we have this Treasure in earthen vessels, so that the excellency of the power* may be of God,and not of us ! . . . . Troubled on every side, yet not distressed, perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken, cast down, but not destroyed . . . Always bearing about in the body, the dying of the Lord Jesus (Adoni Yehushua), that the Life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh . . . !” II Corinthians 4:6-11
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the Glory which shall be revealed in us . . . For the earnest expectation of all the creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God !” Romans 8:18-19
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations . . . But now is made manifest to His saints*. . . . To whom God would make known what is the riches (abundance) of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles . . . Which is Christ in you, the hope of Glory !” Colossians 1:26-27
