Very well said. I believe the Chalcedon creed expands on this if anyone wants to study this further.

Also, first 😉

Makes more sense when the RC Sproul explains it! 👍

Humans are one in essence. Does this mean humans are many and one in essence? If we are to understand this way, there is no problem because we are talking about 'deity' just as about 'humanity'. The logic must be applied the same way in both cases.

Almighty Holy Father God in heaven, I thank you for the many blessinsg you shower me with every day, many of which I do not even notice and sometimes take for granted to my shame. I thank you Father that just 3 years ago, aged 45, after being such a wretched sinner, you reached down into my heart and saved me by the blood of your unique beloved Son Jesus Christ. I am sorry Father that I still sin sometimes, but I truly thank you, that you knew that already and so sent your Holy Spirit into my being, to help me to grow from my old ways, and into the new man that you created in me. Help me Father to grow in faith every day, to help me grow in obedience every day, to grow more into the man you made me to be every day, that One day, which you planned before I was born, you will use me as you see fit, to do your will, to reflect the light of your beloved Son, like a broken piece of mirror, as a beacon, that leads just One other lost soul, to you. I confess I do not feel that I am growing as fast as I should, but those around me say different, that I am a different man than I was just 3 years ago. I still live in a whole lot of physical pain Father, due to my spinal problem, and I confess I also panic a little when I have Angina, after having Two heart attacks. I confess that sometimes the pain and the worry gets me down, and I pray for your forgiveness and your strength to overcome these times of fear and doubt. Oh Father I thank you, that even when I feel alone, you are still with me, in me, helping me, guiding me and teaching me. I am comforted when I realize I feel convicted over something I have done, because that is a true sign you are working within me, molding me like clay in your hands into the man you made me to be. I pray Father for your mighty hand to heal me. I know you still work miracles as I saw what you did in answer to prayer after my Son's near fatal motorcycle crash, Heal me Father that I may walk again pain free, though your will be done, not mine, as I know you told your Apostle Paul that through our weakness, you are strong. I pray Father for all my Brothers and Sisters in your church, who suffer for your names sake. I pray for all those who are oppressed in the countries in which they live, just for having faith in you. Hear in the UK we are blessed with many translations of your word, that we often take it for granted. But we have heard of those elsewhere, that have to hide hand written versions of your word, in plastic and bury it in the ground in secret places, for fear of their oppressors catching them in possession of the Bible. Oh Father I pray you protect these, your servants, that they remain safe and well, and grow stronger in Christ. I pray too that the hearts of their oppressors be softened, and their eyes be opened, that they too might hear your word, and in turn, come to be saved by your Sons precious blood. I know we must not set dates, as only you know when you will send you Son Jesus to come and collect us, His bride. But we also know Father God, that with every sunset, we draw another day closer to that momentous event, and so we must all the more share our own testimonies, and reach out to share your word aloud in this fallen world where the living are truly lost, just as I once was. Grant us all the right words to say, at the right time, before the right people, that more and more souls return to you, that they be saved from where they have chosen to head, and instead, accept your gift of faith, by your grace, for eternal life in Christ Jesus, in who's name I pray to you. Amen.

No Jesus is the energy within you
and the oil in your brain is the Christ the light of the world as your brain is making reality possible

J. E. S. U. S
10 5 19 21 19 = 74

E. N. E. R. G. Y
5 14 5 18 7 25 = 74

If you can raise this energy within you you will awaken your pineal gland (lamb of god/brain) Genesis 32.30 which releases an oil known as Christos in Greek (the Christ) the brain is god (brain = 26 / god = 26)

Jesus Christ is within you as is the kingdom of heaven and every person who has Christ knows this hence why they are called wise virgins (clean pure and enlightened) Satan is your spine the snake the lower energy manifested aspect (carnal mind) not the higher illuminated aspect (god head)

I'm sitting here wondering how I'm supposed to consider only a portion of Jesus to be God in all his infinite perfection. It doesn't compute in my brain. So, I'll just put this idea aside for now…

Nobody could explain things as well as RC! He was amazing!
…nevertheless …I must confess that even after listening to RC explain it, I just cannot wrap my head around this! 🤯

…so, I just choose to abide in faith, and not worry about my current, temporary lack of understanding.

Christ did not have a human nature, he had a divine nature, one nature, this is the reason why Christ came, so that through him we overcome the Human Nature, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be transformed into the image of the Christ, this is what it means, Christ is flesh meaning, he is not some ghostly image, so that all men and women can overcome the Human Nature through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, this is how Christ saves you, because you have a human nature, you also have to have a sinful nature, you cannot have one without the other.

to avoid misunderstanding ,we might say Jesus is the son of God
as Jesus himself declared to be

Jesus is Adam. If you a half a brain you would understand that.
Jesus said this in Mathew chapter 23v 8and 9.
He is the father, all the people are sisters and brothers.

Jesus is not God. Your Pentecostal extremism requires Jesus to be God, which is true when Jesus returns (Pentacost) as a Spirit, in that The Spirit is God (actual scripture, not a protestant rewrite).

Benjamin Bird - posted on March 11, 2020 8:12 am

This is a false teacher who is not resting in peace by the way, for there is one God, and one mediator the man Christ Jesus. Deuteronomy 6:4 please read it. There is no Trinity and every word that this man is spoke does not exist in the word of God.

Then when Jesus Christ rose from the dead a new genus came into being?

After the resurrection did Jesus Christ remain two distinct “essences” inhabiting one body, or is He now an entirely new and different being just like the first Adam was in regard to the human race?

Technically, this is WRONG! Deut 18:18, tells us God will raise up a prophet and put his word in him. After Jesus is baptized, the holy ghost entered Jesus and the last thing that happen to Jesus on the cross, he gave up the ghost! Jesus prayed to God, Jesus tells us over and over, he is NOT the Father but the "word" is in him. Look at John 13:16, what is Jesus saying? John 12:49….I simply look to any page and see Jesus telling us, HE IS NOT GOD BUT HE IS THE SON. So, we know God can not die….who died on the cross? Who raised Jesus from the dead? The Father did all this! Rev 1:14/15 and Dan 10:6….who is this? Give you a hit, tear down the temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days? Jesus is the temple, the Tabernacle of Congregations which God dwelled in. Jesus tells us "I am" bread of life, light of world, the door, the only way, the lamb of God….he is the sacrifice for sin, and just as God dwelled in the Tabernacle of Congregations, he dwelled in Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:7 is your trininty "Father, Word and Holy Ghost" and that is it! Also, when does Jesus come back…..only the Father knows! Not Jesus….the Father! jesus is similar to Joseph in Egypt, given all power and authority from the Pharaoh. I hope you understand….3 things to remember: Matt 22:37, Matt 22:39 and John 3:16. Amen

Psalm 68:18 That is clearly EL YASHUA
John 3:13 That is clearly YASHUA talking
John 6:62 YASHUA is clearly telling them that he descended from heaven.
Eph 4:8-10 This is clearly EL YASHUA and YASHUA…
THE SAME GOD IS DOING IT ALL!!! This is so simple!!!!

Just like all sons have this same device nature. I john 3:9. The trinity is a pagan lie. Elohiem is the father alone as defined by scripture and hebrew grammar. Psalms 18:31, 2nd Samuel 22:32 , isaiah 44, john 17:3, Eph. 4:6. Incarnation is a pagan doctrine of the mystery religion of Babylon. He became the firstbegotten son at his spiritual birth not physical birth Roman's 1:3-4. He was the only begotten until penticost then all sons are born by the same incorruptible seed. Pretty soon believers are going to wake up from their strong delusion and put all you lying wolves in sheep's clothing out of business!

Ephesians 5:8 - posted on April 17, 2020 11:02 am

Revelation 7: 10 And they keep shouting with a loud voice, saying: “Salvation we owe to our God(Father), who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb(Jesus). Matthew 11: 25 Jesus said: “I publicly praise you, FATHER, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to young children. 21 Jesus said to her: “Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the FATHER. John 4: 24 God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and truth. Matthew 12: 49 And extending his hand toward his disciples, he said: “Look! My mother and my brothers! 50 For whoever does the will of my FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN, that one is my brother and sister and mother.

God is Spirit. Not "a spirit." Big difference.

God condescended into mortality. He took upon Him flesh and blood to offer himself as a sacrifice to satusfycthe demands of justice.

Prove that Jesus (PBUH) Is Not God

The Attributes of God, ‘All-Mighty’, ‘All Knowing’, Eternal, Independent. if we apply
these attributes to Jesus and see if he qualifies.

God is All-Knowing… Jesus (PBUH) was not.
Speaking of the last day Jesus said ‘But of That Day or That Hour knows no man, neither the

angels, nor the son, but only the father’ (Mark 13:32)

God Is All-mighty… Jesus (PBUH) was not.

‘I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge, and my judgement is just, because I

seek not my own will, but the will of Him who sent me’ (John 5:30)

God doesn’t pray to anyone … Jesus (PBUH) did

‘And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face (sujud) and prayed.’ (Matt 26:39)

Jesus never said ‘I am God, worship me.’
