PAUL B THOMAS TOPICAL BIBLE STUDY
# 36 THE GODHEAD

In him dwelt the fulness of the godhead Bodily (Col 1;19).

Divine fulness. In Jesus nothing is lacking. He is God’s perfection and himself, perfect God. What God was he as a man is and the perfection of it. Jesus is the perfection of all that God was and is. This means that man, cannot be perfect as a man without being one with God as Jesus was one with God, for it is only in oneness can we receive fulness. Just as a man who is one with his wife is full of love for his wife so too, a man that is one with God is full of the love of God. When man ignores the oneness of God teachings in scripture, he deprives himself of Christlikeness and can no more be a son of God any more than an estranged wife be his wife. Oneness is not a signed marriage contract, its not a paper thing! It’s not what you read, it’s what of God that you embrace in its fulness, and its only in the embracing of “oneness” with God can man fully, truly and completely manifest God. Hence the importance of knowing the Jesus who as man is the Godhead bodily.

GODHEAD has not the same meaning as TRINITY. Godhead denotes a supreme being, Trinity denotes a trifold of persons representing a supreme being. GODHEAd is not a representation of God. godhead reveals the very God. In HIM dwells the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2;9).

JESUS AND THE FULNESS OF GOD

DIVINE FULNESS

In him dwells the fulness of the godhead bodily.

So there is nothing we can say of the Father that we cannot say of the son.  The son looks like him because he is him. He has what the Father has because he is the father, everything about the Father we can say about the Son. If he was then co-equal as the trinitarians suggest then that would make him equally the father as the Son is the Father. Note then that there are no two equal persons but one person who is equally God as he is man.

It was in the giving of himself as the only begotten. He has what the Father has and is what the Father is.

Why is this important.1 for it is a bible command to worship the LORD thy God and him only shalt thou serve. 2. We are not to serve idols and man made gods. trinitarians is a man made God called trinity. 3. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, I don’t want to believe a lie and I don’t want to believe a lie that I’m saved when I’m not. I DON’T WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE WHO CALL ON THE LORD’S NAME YET DON’T KNOW HIM.

Of his fullness have we all received

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (John 1:14)

The fullness of his spirit. The fullness of his ability. The fullness of his grace. The fullness of his saving power. The fullness of salvation. Fullness replaces weakness when we know we have received from him. ‘And Stephen FULL of the holy Ghost. And Stephen, FULL of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people (Acts 6:8).’

FULLNESS CONNECTING HEAVEN TO EARTH

(to the church) which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all (Ephesians 1:23).

The complete coming to complete that which was incomplete. The incorruptible coming to the corrupt in order for us to put on incorruption. The treasure coming to the beggar in order for the beggar to be rich. The treasure coming as the treasurer in order for the borrower to become the legal heir of all things. Fullness coming as everything when humans had nothing.

Everything  making man made things as nothing. For in him dwelling the riches of the inheritance of the saints. “In him dwelt the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Col 2:9). Everything must find its body here in the earth. I’m glad it found me.  FULLNESS in you CONNECTING to the fullness that’s in god. Everything that he has you can have Every gift he possesses you possess. What he has you have since God was in Christ and Christ is in you. It’s not a question of asking God what is my gift. Jesus is the gift, never ask what is my role my ministry when Jesus is your gift. Just do what he done!

Heal the sick cast out devils raise the dead freely give.

THE FULNESS OF GOD CAME TO US AS MAN

Whatever JESUS is, he is that eternally. He is eternal in all his attributes and titles. He cannot be King without being King forever. Since he is Lord, he is Lord forevermore. Since he is God he is God without beginning or ending. His throne is without end his rule is without end and his reign is without end and since he rulers forever no man can say he is absent or that one day he will come back. He is ever present, cannot be absent and will always be king.

Isaiah saw the Lord. the Lord God high and lifted up as King. No prophet told of God as one more than Isaiah. No prophet taught that Jesus was Lord and God more than Isaiah. I am the first and I am the Last and beside me there is no God (Isiah 44;6)’If Jesus is the first and the last then why do many call him the second person? Note too, the title first and last is given only to him not the spirit. there is no third person. Jesus is the only person. Father in creation son in redemption Spirit in salvation. He has never ceased being the first or the last.

Beside me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:8) May say that Jesus is seated beside God right now. I disagree. God himself says there is none beside him. Jesus is the true God seated on his own throne and on his own throne he alone is God. remember Jesus has never been without a throne since he was ‘born king.’ He has always been God, even as man he was God. In the manger he was God and on the cross he was God. and since he was and is God he always will be forevermore God. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6) It doers not say unto God a son was born. God did not give birth to a son further a son is always one born of a father and a father is always a son of another. In Gods case. he is neither the son of a Father neither is he as a Father a son of another. He the ancient of days has neither father or mother. (Hebrews) Since Jesus has no father he must be the everlasting Father as Isiah calls him Father here, the ‘everlasting father’ implying of whom has no beginning of days. Note it is to us that that the child was born. To us here on earth. he was born to us hence the name the ‘son of man’ he therefore was given to all men. no other person has ever had the title Son of man. Does God have a son? May I affirm the scriptures Great is the mystery of Godliness GOD was manifested in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). God in all his FULNESS became the son in all his glory. The Son is the Father incarnated. FULLY GOD…ALL OF GOD IN ALL OF MAN ALL OF THE TIME!

’God’ FULLY GOD, All of God, coming to us to save us. Jesus is God himself in the flesh. If he was born a child then that means he is no longer a child. but as God he existed as God and therefore forevermore is God. His sonship is temporal yet his deity is forevermore eternal. Where is he that is born king (Matt 2:2) Did Isaiah see Jesus as the king. He sure did. “In the year of King Uzziah’s death, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up …” (Isaiah 6:1).“These things Isaiah said, because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him” (John 12:41 NASB).Jesus was born king. and as king he has never abdicated his throne. He has never ceased being king. I hear so may saying Jesus will come to be king. Friend he was born king and he has never stopped being king. His reign is for ever and ever amen. He is not the coming king he is the ever present king.

You’re king, my king, King forevermore.
