Debra's comment on 2014-07-20 07:04:00:

John 1 18 tells us that no man has seen God at any time. Had people seen Jesus? Yes, thousands of people have seen Jesus, therefore Jesus can not be Almighty God, who is Jehovah. That does not take away the fact that he is divine. Having the nature of or being a deity. As the son of Almighty God, Jesus was sent forth by God. Jesus demonstrated on a small scale what he will do for all of mankind in the near future on his Father 's behalf.

it is clear that Jesus here is the Begotten God in which he preached words about The God who is JEHOVAH (Psalms 83:18) that is why Jesus is called The Word ... Jesus and the God is not the same.. one proof is Jesus prayed at Luke 17 ... he used the word "Father" .. Father and Son is not the same obviously... so there is Someone Higher than Jesus - Jehovah (Psalms 83:18)

 

Apostle Moses's comment on 2013-10-25 16:01:06:

God was, God is, and God, ever more shell be God! I believe that God is at work in the body of Christ teaching leading and guiding us into all truth I can testify that God is trustworthy the prophet Malachi says he changes not.

 

Joe Barnes's comment on 2013-08-19 15:30:43:

The WORD of God was made flesh, anyone receiving the Word, receives God. The Lord Jesus words are Spirit and they are Life. The seed-word was spoken into the womb of the virgin and the only begotten from the Father was born. This child conceived in Mary was of the Holy Spirit, thus being the Father, God is Spirit and is Holy. God spoke and creation started, the scripture does not say in the beginning the Father created but God said, the WORD spoken created. Ps.33:6..... We beheld His Glory in the Son, there was no eternal Son but the Only Begotten Son from the eternal Word....Who's Kingdom there is no end...

 

Trina's comment on 2011-10-10 06:17:39:

Jesus was the Godhead bodily, meaning that when you have seen Jesus you also see God bc God is the spirit that is inside of Jesus. Verse 14 says that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, meaning that God created Himself a body and poured the fulness of Himself into that body. That is why that body knew no sin nor did any sin. He took our sin upon Himself for our salvation.

 

Ben's comment on 2011-05-28 04:25:03:

when reading this we are taught in the bible that the Holy Spirit, Jesus, and God are the same. So if man has seen Jesus the how can he not have seen God. I know Jesus was in the form of a human body so then was God in the form of a human body?
