  • S Spencer The right hand of God - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Hi Paul,

    I think it's misleading when we think of God as having a presence like us. In those verses you place Jesus sitting beside God and there you have the son sitting beside the Father. But I don't think that's what those verses is saying. Here's an example.

    Psalms 16:8.I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

    Now do you vision God sitting down beside David ? are is David referring to him as the power in which he shall not be moved?

    Here's another example of him being the power.

    Luke 22:69. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

    The right hand/power is an attribute in which he performs within the God head. Here's some examples.

    Exodus 15:6. Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

    Isaiah 41:10. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    Romans 8:34. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

    Isaiah 48:13. Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

    This is just a few of many verses in which you see

    He makes intercession from his right hand.

    He makes us righteousness from his right hand.

    His power is his right hand.

    He judges from the right hand.

    And as Isaiah 48:13 says along with the volume of the book

    He created the world with his right hand.

    So those verses proves He's God!! That why in Revelation 1:8 he's called the Almighty!!

    Revelation 1:8 (KJV) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

    Jesus is the right hand of God the Father .. All things were created by him and for him . He is the way the truth and the life. no man cometh to the Father but by him.

    No problem Paul,

    On this "God and Jesus are not the same" all I can do is give you my perception on this. As other people may have different views. Maybe others more learned than I would like to share but I will proclaim what I feel about our Lord Jesus Christ. I do not believe Jesus Christ is God the Father as it seems pretty obvious to me as they are two, Father and Son. Although things like Jesus stating "I and the Father are One" and "If you have seen me you have seen the Father" some people may use those to proclaim that "Jesus is God". As I have said before I really have no problem with people saying Jesus is God as they are One. As God is Spirit the Father being in the Son and the Son in the Father is truth. They being One. All things that the Father has have been given to the Son.

    Jesus Christ being the Elect or Chosen One of God. He is the Word of God and the Perfect Lamb of God. The Mediator between God Almighty and man. Sent to us by our Perfect Father in Heaven to bear our sins on His shoulders.( 1 John 2:1-2. By the Glorious Grace and love that God has for us. I believe Isaiah 42 is a good chapter, in the Old Testament, that speaks about Jesus Christ.

    Maybe some other verses of Jesus and the Father not being the "same" even though they are One:

    Proverbs 30:4

    Matthew 26:39

    John 8:17-18

    John 20:17

    ( 1 Timothy 2:5

    The Book of John is my favorite out of the four books of the journey of Chirst. Reading chapter 15-17 is good to see correlation between the Father and Son.

    I hope what I have replied helps you. This is Truth to me in how my eyes have been lead to perceive the Lord Jesus Christ. And no person has taught me these things.

    God Bless you brother.

    What is your Synopsis on Roman 3: 10-12
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Just to correct I wrote "chapter 23" meaning "verse 23". Oops.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Hello Clara,

    I am only thinking your question was to me but as it was a reply to Shane's post. I hope I am not stepping on your toes Shane and of coarse please reply if you'd like.

    What I take of Romans 3:10-12 is Paul stating that everyone is under sin. Going further into chapter 3 as he states things like "their feet are swift to shed blood" "destruction and misery are their ways" "the way of peace have they not known" etc. Seeming as he's talking of people that are pretty deep into a sinful life as "there is no fear of God before their eyes".

    Then getting to verse 21 he begins to speak of the righteousness of God and the redemption in Christ Jesus.

    I guess I would just say keep reading the chapter and how it pans into the Lord. Chapter 23 again stating "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God". As we have nothing to fear because He sent Jesus Christ for us.

    Romans is a great Book by Paul. I hope my post has helped some. God Bless you.
