Yahweh’s House of God Oakland California

Jesus is God; God is Jesus what a revelation. The sovereignty and love of God is exemplified in this simple statement of truth. With the declaration of Jesus as God we both challenge and reaffirm the sovereignty of God. ìThou shall have no other gods before me.î (Exd. 20:3) Are we in danger of violating the first commandment when we extol Jesus as God? Surely we understand that God has declared he would not share his glory with another.

The Creator

The Bible begins by identifying God as the creator. (Gen. 1:1) God identifies himself as the God of creation at the same time promising a light to the gentiles. (Isa. 42:5-8) Isaiah beautifully and poetically proclaims the creator of the ends of the earth is God and Lord. (Isa. 40:28) The book of John begins by identifying the Word as God. (Jn.1:1) He further states that all things were made by him. (Jn. 1:3) John goes on to say that the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us. (Jn. 1:14) In the books of Colossians and Hebrews tells us that Jesus is the creator. (Col. 1:16 & 17; Heb. 1:10) Who then is the creator? Could it be that God is the creator and Jesus is the creator because Jesus is God and God is Jesus? (Jn.10:30, 14:9)

God Almighty Omnipotent and Omnipresent

In the words of Jesus ìLet not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.î (Jn. 14:1) The divine power of God is magnified in this that he walked among us as a man, (Mat. 8:27) he became one of us that he might save us. So we say Shema! How is it that God is a spirit (Jn. 4:24) and Jesus is flesh (Lk. 24:37-39) yet one. Once again the omnipotence of God is shown because with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Mat. 19:26) I submit that Jesus is God in the flesh. (Isa. 7:14; Mat. 1:21-23) Godís appearance as Jesus on earth did not leave heaven without a God. It is a simple display of his omnipresence. So God was in two places at the same time, is there anything to hard or impossible for God. Is it inconceivable that God could be in multiple places in several different forms simultaneously? Let us not limit Godís omnipresence by our human experience. Rather yet let us recognize the sovereignty of God in that it is impossible to separate God and Jesus. (Eph. 4:5 & 6) So we say Shema! ìHear, oh Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:î(Dt. 6:4) We except the truth of the oneness of God and acknowledge that Jesus is God, and God is Jesus and teach others the same.
