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
and it was he, whom the king saw
in the fire with the three Hebrew boys
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,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)
was possible for David to say of Christ,
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,
David then call him Lord, how is he his son?" (Matthew 22:44,45).
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
man has seen God at any time; the only begotten son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him."
Ah, so that's it!
But, can it be? Can it? Can it be that all we know of
