God… both Father and Son!

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1, 14)  Truth that exalts Jesus to his highest office that of Lord God is always sound doctrine.

The Greek for Word is “logos” not “anthropos” person. Logos means, mind will and intelligence.  This tells us that  Jesus was not another God next to the Father but rather the only God who alone is the Father. Jesus as not another person that took on flesh but rather God’s own word, voice, reason and intelligence that took on flesh.

Great is the mystery of Godliness “God” manifested in the flesh. ( 1 Timothy 3:16).

There can only be one God in flesh, “Logos” mind, will and intelligence of God, in a body. That body then is God’s very own Word made flesh. The Word was not a person before the incarnation. However it was at the incarnation that the Word took on flesh and dwelt among us. God’s own Word incarnated itself, which means as God he is Spirit, yet as Word he is flesh. This tells us God dwelt with us  (Matthew 1:23). So as God he is everywhere yet as man he is also with us. Now only Jesus as God, can be everywhere yet at the same time, also be a man among us.

No wonder Jesus said, yes Jesus said “where two or three are gathered together there am I.” (Matthew 18:20).

To further illustrate allow me to say this. Just like your word comes from you and is you, so too God’s word comes from him and is him.  My word is not my father’s, its mine own as a father. My word is not another person called me, its my mind manifested which is me. Similarly God and his word are one. Only our God, can be both an omnipresent father and yet an ever-present Word.

If that’s hard to swallow  why not consider purchasing my ebook “Jesus what a God, God what  a man” available from paulbthomas.net and available on amazon
