LET'S TALK ABOUT GOD
The churches of Christ Greet You (Romans 16:16)
V. LET'S TALK ABOUT THE LORD GOD
Jesus is not only the Son of God, but also God the Son. Since no
greater truth is affirmed in the Sacred Text, one cannot read the Bible
(especially the New Testament) without recognizing the One who is God
Son (cf. Heb. 1:8). This doctrine in fact permeates the Word of
from Genesis to Revelation; only a materialist would fail to see it.
The Bible teaches that the ONE Lord GOD is our CREATOR and our
RULER. In one passage, Deuteronomy 6:4, we can see the absolute
ONENESS of God, and also the PLURAL aspects of the Godhead. Moses
said concerning the Being of God, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord (Jehovah)
our God (Heb. Elohim, plural) is one (Heb. achid or echad - meaning a
united being; a compound unity -
not just one) Lord (Jehovah)” (Deuteronomy 6:4).
Thus, the Lord God is NOT the being of three ranked Persons who would
be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our
Creator. NEITHER can the one God of the Scriptures be three
ranked Gods who would be called God the Father, God the Son, and God
the Holy Spirit.
The Lord God is, however, the being of THREE equal Persons who are made
to be called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our
Creator. The one Lord God of the Scriptures CAN be more than one
Heavenly Person providing that those Heavenly Persons equally possess
the same Essence, Nature, Substance, Powers, and Attributes of the one
and only Lord God.
In being our Creator, Moses said concerning the Lord God: "And the Lord
God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his
the breath of life; and man became a living soul" (Gen. 2:7).
said, concerning the Persons who are called the Lord God in being our
Creator, "For there are three (Persons) that bear record in heaven, the
Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit: and these three (Persons) are
one" (equal - 1 John 5:7). The THREE members of the Godhead are
equal in matters of their own individual Being of life. They
equally possess the same Powers, Nature, and Attributes of the one and
only Lord God.
The Bible also teaches that the Lord GOD is the Father of Christ the
Lord, and Christ the Lord is the Son of the Lord God. The Father
and the Son relationship which exist between the Lord God and Christ
the Lord is NOT the being of two ranked Persons. The reign of the
Lord God was made
to be the Father-head figure of the reign of Christ the Lord, and the
of Christ the Lord was made to be the Offspring status of the reign of
Lord God. The reign of the Lord God brought the reign of Christ
Lord into being upon the earth so that CHRIST could do the Divine work
The Lord God (a God-Person) was born Christ the Lord upon the earth so
that He could do the Divine work of human redemption. The Lord God
said, "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; He (Christ the Lord) shall bruise thy head, and
thou (the Devil) shalt bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15). “For unto
you is born this day in
the city of David, a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:11).
The Father and the Son relationship which exist between the Lord God
and Christ the Lord is the being of a Father-head figure and an
Offspring status relationship instead of being two ranked Persons. This
is why the THREE God-Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and
the Holy Spirit (in being our Creator) equally made themselves to be
called Christ the Lord in being the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit so that they could be our Redeemer.
The Bible says, “The Lord (God) said unto my Lord (Christ), sit thou on
my right hand, until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all
the house of Israel know assuredly, that (the Lord) God (who was the
being of the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in Heaven) hath made
Jesus (who was the Incarnated Word upon the earth), whom ye have
both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:34-36).
Jesus (who was made both Lord and Christ) said concerning those THREE
Heavenly Persons who would be called Christ the Lord in matters of our
redemption of life, “Go teach all nations, baptizing them in the name
authority) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit"
Christ the Lord is our REDEEMER and our RULER. Christ the Lord is
NOT the being of only one Heavenly Person who would be called the Son
(Jesus) in being our Redeemer. Christ the Lord was made to be
more than one Heavenly Person in matters of our own redemption of
life. Christ the Lord is the being of THREE equal Persons who are
called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer.
Man, in being an alien sinner, must be baptized into CHRIST (Rom. 6:3)
for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38). AGAIN, Jesus said
concerning the reign of Christ the Lord in being our Redeemer, “Go
teach all nations, baptizing them in the name (by the authority) of the
Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit." (Matt. 28:19). "For as many of you as
been baptized into Christ have put on Christ" (Gal. 3:27).
The Lord God and Christ the Lord are two title Names in which THREE
Heavenly Persons equally are made to work and RULE in matters of our
own creation and redemption of life. New Testament Christians
have been created and
redeemed by THREE equal Persons who are made to be called the Lord God
Christ the Lord in being our Creator and our Redeemer.
