Question : Divinity of Christ

[05/02/2018 09:08] Outreachislam.org:

SINGULAR GOD NO TRINITY OR PLURALITY:
Galatians 3:20 A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one

1 Timothy 2:5 New Living Translation For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity– the man Christ Jesus.

Which clearly says the mediator Jesus is not God !

Mark 12:32 New International Version “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.

Mark 12:32 Depicts singular God

John 1:34 New Living Translation I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.”

GOD DOES NOT NEED TO DO ACTS OF REPENTANCE:

BUT JESUS’ DID ACTS REPENTANCE IN JOHN’S WAY:

Mark 1:9 New Living Translation One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River.

Acts 19:4 New Living Translation Paul said, “John’s baptism called for repentance from sin.

Numbers 23:19  New American Standard Bible  God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

King James Bible
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

JPS Tanakh 1917
God is not a man, that He should lie; Neither the son of man, that He should repent: When He hath said, will He not do it? Or when He hath spoken, will He not make it good?

Since the Word “Son of Man” is a title of Jesus Christ who use it for himself, why don’t Christians take Numbers 23:19 and say this is pointing to the Messiah? 

The New Testament says, Jesus Christ atoned for his own sins!:

Pastors bring up perfect sacrifice idea to say, Jesus is God died for our sins!. Because we are sinners and too imperfect to go to heaven, so Jesus came as blameless to die for us, as God is Eternally sinless, see Christian doctrine: God is Unchangeable in his holiness and wisdom!

But the New Testament says Jesus Christ was made lower than angels in in glory and power!

Hebrews 2:9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor 

And that Jesus made atonement for his own sins!,I am not saying this, the Bible which is fully word of God saying this!

See Hebrews 5:

Hebrews 5: Every high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. This is why “he” (Jesus)  has to offer sacrifices for his (Jesus’) own sins, as well as for the sins of the peopleAnd no one takes this honor on himself, but “he” receives it when called by God, just as Aaron was.

And Hebrew 5:5 explains, Jesus was called by God to become high priest and the Bible calls high priests as sons of God,  Psalm 82:6 and John 10:30-40. And Christ used John 10:30 as an argument for Jews for claiming Superiority by twisting the scriptures (Jeremiah 8:8) and making themselves sons of God to claim tribal superiority!

But God does not show favouritism! (Acts 10:34), but today Christians blindly follow jewish errors and they also take the arguments of Christ to Jews  literally and make Jesus as deity in flesh without seeing the purpose and context of those arguments, 

This book clearly speaks about two high priests, One is Aaron and second is Jesus Christ (Peace be upon them). Some Christians who are spiritually blind, says this verses speaking about other high priests!  As a matter of fact, this verses speaking about two singular men! Prophet Aaron (Peace be upon him) and Christ (Peace be upon him).

According to Torah- the eternal law of God , no man will never be God or never will be called as the God of Israel!

So wake up and accept the truth!

Jesus is chosen one, who chose? God chose, if Jesus was to be the one who is eternally God in equal glory and power, then the “chosen” theory is nonsense

The new testament authors and disciples of acts praying to God for Jesus Christ to give him the promised throne of David.

Acts 13:34 New Living Translation For God had promised to raise him from the dead, not leaving him to rot in the grave. He said, ‘I will give you the sacred blessings I promised to David.’

If Jesus is God then why should disciples seek him the throne of David?

It’s like asking her majesty the Queen to become mayor of London!

If Jesus was the majestic God who ruled the entire universe then why the disciples have to pray for the second coming Jesus and to seek god’s promise for him ? 

That’s why I said, It’s like asking her majesty Queen to become mayor of London!

Or let’s say to Americans, it is like an employee of Microsoft praying to Bill gates to appoint his heir as a small department head, when the son is the co-owner of the company!

Either the disciples are spoken foolish words about Jesus Christ whom the post disciples era, new Church Christian think he is god

Or the disciples were right and those who claimed that Jesus is God were wronged

John 17:3 and 1 Timothy 1:17 , Jesus Christ and Paul dismissed trinity

Paul said God of Abraham (whether he is singular or plural) glorified His Servant Jesus (Acts 3:13)

Acts 4: 29 And now, *Lord, consider their threats, and enable Your servants to speak Your word with complete boldness, 30 as You stretch out Your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of *Your holy servant Jesus.

In the bible everyone who follow God and Jesus is ‘Abdul’ (servant of God)!

But CP reject to be an Abdul and mock at Abdul, Matthew 24:50-51 also testifies that true followers of God are called “servants” Abdul and false servants (Abduls) will be punished!
Foolishness of Christian Prince  JAY SMITH and others on YouTube channel’

I asked a question to a clever evangelical pastor : show me one verse which prove disciples worshipped Jesus as God ?

The pastor quoted me ACTS 13:2 While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

And said this is Jesus the lord here who was worshiped by disciples

But when I proved to the pastor that in the entire acts the worship and prayer is attributed to the Father,not to the sin 

Acts 4: 29 And now, *Lord, consider their threats, and enable Your servants to speak Your word with complete boldness, 30 as You stretch out Your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”

As I quoted this verse from acts , the pastor started shivering and said he felt that I m insulting his faith and he don’t want to discuss anymore

Acts 3:13 New International Version The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go.

New Living Translation
For it is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–the God of all our ancestors–who has brought glory to his servant Jesus by doing this. This is the same Jesus whom you handed over and rejected before Pilate, despite Pilate’s decision to release him.

English Standard Version
The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him.

And Jesus shared his glory , but the God of Abraham do not yield his glory to another (Isaiah 48:11,42:8)

John 17:22 New International Version:  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one–

Isaiah 48:11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another”.

Christ became High priest forever, that’s the glory he had received according to Hebrews

Hebrews 5:5 In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.”

New Living Translation
That is why Christ did not honor himself by assuming he could become High Priest. No, he was chosen by God, who said to him, “You are my Son. Today I have become your Father.”

English Standard Version
So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”;

In biblical language someone becoming son of God means he has become high priest to serve God
But they took literally and said Jesus is God and God’s son

See Psalm 82:6

Psalm 82:6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’

New Living Translation
I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High.

English Standard Version
I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;

The same thing says in Hebrews 5:5

Authors of Hebrews warned people to avoid foolish beliefs about Christ and believe in Christ as Muslims and disciples believed

Hebrews 3:1 New International Version Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.

New Living Translation
And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest.

English Standard Version
Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,

All Muslims believe jesus is a messenger of God and an imam (,high priest) in prophetic clan to the children of Israel (Luke 1;33 ,Matthew 15:24)

Isiah 9:6 spoken about Hezekiah the king of Israel, he was a mighty God in the context of Psalm 82:6

They used scriptures idioms and metaphors carefully.because the greatest commandment never changing.

Matthew 22:40 New International Version
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

New Living Translation
The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

English Standard Version
On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

So Jesus Christ says : John 17:3
New International Version

Some Evangelicals saying Jesus is Yahweh, trinity says Jesus is not the father , according Torah Father is Yahweh, Jesus says father is greater than I

Even Deuteronomy 18:15-28 says ‘let is not hear the voice of Yahweh nor see his fire , or else we will die’. Yahweh said what the day is true ,and I will raise up a Prophet like u from among your brethren!

So if Jesus is Yahweh, then who is the Prophet of Deuteronomy 18:18? Wake up no Mind people!

1 Timothy 1:17 clearly says one God the eternal king unseen one who never dies he alone is God
How can people lie so plainly like this and say Jesus is Yahweh , just to win an argument?

Hebrews 5:7 New Living Translation While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God.

That’s spiritual blindness, caused by the Baptism to false spirits, they don’t realise it when they do it, but if you record the conversation and if they watch it later ,then they will see what they were doing !

A Jw.org guy talked to me similar way to win the arguments. On Matthew 5:17 ,I sad the law and prophets teachings not abrogated, he argued and said only mosaic law , but later he turned around and said he never spoke anything like that !

They believe Christ is an angel by misquoting Hebrews 1:5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?

Hebrews 1:13 New International Version To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
From this verse they quote arch angel Michael fought against devil and his glorified him as his son

But this guys misquote this verses to say Jesus is angel Michael who even came to Joshua

Joshua 5:14 “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”

Revelation 12:7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.

Jude 1:9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”

They quote this verses to say Jesus is angel Michael (Mikhail alahissalam)

Hebrews 2:9 New International Version But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone

This verses they quote and say Jesus is angel and he was made lower than angels during his human life and made glorious after ascension

But it is clearly from the Torah that Messiah will be a human and not an angel or God!

Christians say, Jesus is the perosn who came to Joshua And Joshua worshiped Jesus !

This is act of reverence and not act of Deity worship
Moreover when Moses and Elijah visited Jesus Christ when he was among the disciples, none of them worshipped Jesus Christ!

They treated him as a fellow prophet and Jesus was under the law of Moses as u know!

Prophet Muhammad alahissalam is the highest of the prophets that’s why the prophets call him lord (Sayyidi)

He was the only Prophet who was not under the law of the previous prophets:

Luke 9: The Transfiguration

28About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. 31They spoke about his departure,a which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. 32Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. 33As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.)

34While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” 36When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.

No account found anywhere in the Bible they (Moses and Elijah) worshipped Jesus as trinity Deity!

So we can say that the claim of Christians about Joshua 5 is false claim

Joshua 5:14 “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” Then Joshua fell face down to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”

In fact in the 50-70 years MINISTRY of the disciples, none of them worshipped Jesus as Deity
The worship as reverence to a prophet and high priest of God is given to o Christ occasionally by the disciples and others totalling 6 or 7 worship

Imagine today , they worship Jesus in chruch every Sunday, but in the disciples time 3 years Christ’s mission all the disciples worshipped Jesus once at the mountain ,.and during his ascension

Others and some individuals from among the disciples individually have respect when they return to the master ,and bible call it worship

So basically 150 weeks disciples together worshiped Jesus only twice .
And after the ascension no worship of Christ

What is that telling you?

It was a reverence and not a deity worship

This customs still practiced among Muslims , Jews, African tribal leaders , Hindus , Buddhists and every culture
Even in Catholic and orthodox churches
See Daniel 2:46 King James Bible Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

Did king do this act of worship everyday? Answer”no”

When did he doo, when he visited Daniel first and give him respect and reverence

Same way the some disciples went away and came back they showed greetings and reverence

And magi did the same , they didn’t go back to east and established worship of Jesus there

And then tax collector came and showed reverence , only once , the lady came and bowed down and sought help
Only common sense and some connection to eastern culture is enough to understand this concept

If Jesus was to be God In flesh , we would have seen historical accounts in acts ,that they worshiped Jesus in their congregations

There is absolutely zero accounts
A clever pastors quoted acts and said to me they worshiped lord means they worshiped Jesus and fasted
But whole theme in acts is worshipping God the Father. That pastor discontinued the discussions!

No worship of holy spirit as well:
It’s a later man made DOCTRINES
Acts 14:15. New International Version Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the *living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in

That is God the father, if Paul and others were accustomed of worshipping Jesus as Deity,then they would have simply said worship Jesus who is the God . But they made this theological statement in accordance with Torah and commanded to worship the God of Israel. As father is not son and vice versa according to your DOCTRINES as well!

Because if Jesus is to be worshipped then the message is clear and simple to the new believers the gentiles , as it is easy for them to understand just to say jesus as they easily get confused about whom to worship

But they outlined the words in Torah and says to worship the creator , as everyone agree Jesus the second person in the trinity isn’t the creator, as the trinity involve distinctive persons!

But men are spritually blind and worldly attachments enslaved them from hearing the truth and accepting the truth. That is the worst form of slavery

In 2013-14 many times I pleaded with Nabeel qureshi to converse with me , he refused every time and blocked me from contacting him. Now last year his chance is over

The salvation is to know that He is the Only God and He sent His Servant Jesus to the children of Israel (John 17:3 , Matthew 15:24) all Muslims believe in it and are in the straight path !

Without accepting the Tawhid Oneness of God as singular God preached by Jesus in John 17:3 it is difficult to attain the eternal life!

Since the only true God is God the father, the TRINITY and Jesus as God is the false Deity church invented in the age of darkness (John 12;35, Matthew 7:13-24 the wide gate and broad road)

Because Jesus words stands forever (My words shall never pass away)
John 12:35 and Matthew 7:13-14 ,so the Christianity cannot be 100% right nor bible can be 100% true!

So we need a threshold to look the entire bible that is the prophesies and teachings of Christ and previous prophets
