Resolved: The Bible Says


I am comfortable with unresolved mysteries, for I understand that part of the spectrum of knowledge is the recognition of our own limitations. The bible says that we know in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). Yet, for those of us for whom there is an impelling desire to resolve unresolved mysteries, I offer you this. The omnipresent nature of God is just as paradoxical as the trinity.

Now we can conclude that the bible says that Jesus existed in the beginning with God. As a result we know that Jesus always existed. First, I will make it clear that Jesus was not a god, for there are those who would claim that there are many gods, both in heaven and earth. Then, I will proceed to further support the theme of John 1:1 that not only was Jesus with God, but in addition Jesus was infact God.

As a result of these scriptures there can be no dobut that the bible makes it clear that there is only one God and that God the Father is the only true God. Thus, if Jesus Christ is a different God than God the Father, then Jesus Christ is a false God! This completely dissmisses the notion that Jesus is a god. Therefore, according to John 1:1 coupled with John 1:14 we can say with authority the bible says that in the beginning Jesus was God. When we look at Isaiah 43:10 and other scriptures we know that there is only one God, and that Jesus and God the Father are the same God. Now I will give even further support to the theme of John 1:1 that Jesus is God.

Therefore, in addition to John 1:1, we again have evidence here that Jesus and Jehovah are the same God.

Here we have a reference to the equality of Jesus and God. Thus we know that God the Father and Jesus are one God, the same in substance, and equal in power and glory.

From these scriptures we can paraphrase John 1:1 to say 'In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was hidden in God, and Jesus was God'. The proceeding paragraphs will give even further evidence that Jesus and God the Father were in fact the same God..

Now we are prepared to answer the question. How can God the Father be God, Jesus the Son be God and yet there is only one God. We must be persuaded that if Jesus and God were the same God or person then that would solve the mystery. Furthermore, we must be persuaded that because God is omnipotent (Revelation 19:6), because nothing is impossible for God (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27; Luke 1:37; Luke 18:27) and because God is omnipresent then surely God has the ability to divide and multiply himself while maintaining a state of singularity.

There are those who would argue that if God and Jesus are the same person then why does Jesus keep referring to him and the Father being separate, the Father being greater than he, or why does Jesus pray to the Father. I can't give a conclusive answer to these questions from the bible. What I can tell you is that it is impossible for God to lie ( Hebrews 6:18). God said Jesus is God. God said there is only one God. Therefore, we must conclude God the Father and Jesus are the same God.

In conclusion, it doesn't mater how many instances one might show of God and Jesus being separate; John 1:1 states that God and Jesus are separate. Yet, John 1:1 also states that at the same time that they are separate they are the same. Furthermore, I've given several supporting scriptures of this theme:

Even if, by some miracle you're not convinced that Jesus is separate from God while at the same time Jesus is God, you must be persuaded of the following. The omnipresent nature of God means that in heaven there is a phenomenon that allows an entity to be separated by space while still being the same entity. Furthermore, God is an example of this phenomenon. In addition we know that in heaven there are mysteries that we are not capable of understanding as humans.

This can be paraphrased to say Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens.

A professor of mine once stated some things are infinite and other things are infinite, but some things are more infinite than other things (another one of those paradoxes). He went on to explain that there are and infinite numbers of numbers between one and two (1.001, 1.01, 1.1, 1.2, 1.2222 etc.). He went on to explain that there are an infinite number of numbers ( all numbers between 1 & 2, all numbers between 2 &3, etc., and all whole numbers).

Yet, all the numbers between one and two, which are infinite, don't even begin to scratch the surface of all the numbers which are also infinite. I'm using that paradox to say that even if my knowledge was infinite, which it's not, all I could hope for is to be symbolic of all the numbers between one and two. This wouldn't even begin to scratch the surface of God's infinite knowledge.

Furtheremore, there are truths concerning spiritual things that cannot be reached via reason, rather these understandings must come from heaven.

Matthew 16:15-17

Why can't you believe that Jesus is God. After all, the bible said he is and what book is a better witness than the bible, which is under the protection of God (Rev 22:18-19). Is there any book written by men, that is a better witness than the bible which was written by men who knew God and claimed to be inspired by God.

In conclusion, if you don't that Jesus is God, it is understandable; for some of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven are reserved for a select few.
