Jesus, himself, asked the Pharisees how it

God, is through the Son? Then, it was he whom Moses saw in the mount, when seeing God's back (Exodus 33:23, 34:5-7). It was he, whom Abraham spoke to, while pleading for the lives of those in Sodom (Genesis 18:20-25) and it was he, whom the king saw in the fire with the three Hebrew boys (Daniel 3:25)!
     
Then, it really is true, what the Old Testament prophet recorded of him, in his writings:


Come ye near unto me . . . I have not spoken in secret from the beginning, from the time that it was, there am I:
and now the LORD God,
and his Spirit,
has sent me.
(Isaiah 48:16)

Incredible! The LORD God (the Father) and his Spirit (the Holy Spirit), have sent our Lord (Christ) into the world to deliver us –and that's Old Testament!


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,
Counselor,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace
 (Isaiah 9:6)

 

was possible for David to say of Christ, "The Lord said unto my Lord, sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?" Focusing on one problem in the text, he asked, "If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?" (Matthew 22:44,45).
They understood that Christ would be the son of David (David's descendant -Isaiah 55:3) but how could David's descendant be his "Lord"?? Worst (what they really didn't want to think about) how could David's Lord, have a Lord? That was like saying, "God said to my God..." How can God speak to God?? Does not the scripture say, "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord." (Deut. 6:4) and— what of wise, King Solomon's, description of God:
. . . Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; . . .
". . . Do not I fill heaven and earth? says the Lord." (II Chron. 6:16, Jeremiah 23:24) and John, in his glorious gospel declares, "No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him." (John 1:18).
Ah, so that's it!
But, can it be? Can it? Can it be that all we know of
