[Bible Comments]…The only time Jesus became eternal was when the Father resurrected Him to eternal life from death after the crucifixion. Jesus was very much a human man and still is even tho He sits at His Father’s right hand doing the Father’s business and awaiting to return to the earth to govern it until the new earth and new heaven is and the Father is with us also and Jesus hands over the reigns to His Father and His God. Jesus could not be eternal, as He could not die, nor is He god as many churches teach, in my eyes that is a disgrace and should never be allowed to be taught. Nor could God empty Himself and come down, God could not empty Himself of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is the Father’s power and not a person as many stupid churches teach.
[Bible Answer] Greetings in Jesus’ name. You write like you have been spiritually influenced by the Jehovah’s Witnesses to some degree. That is NOT good, since they were founded by a false prophet (Charles Taze Russell) and their doctrines are very unscriptural and DANGEROUS. You also seem to have had another influence from some unknown source to me, who has also misinformed you about the Lord Jesus.
Please know, Jesus is NOT created. He is “from everlasting” (Micah 5:2) as well as eternal life (1 John 1:2). Hence, he could not be created. What may be throwing you off are the references to Jesus’ humanity. As a man, Jesus prayed to the Father. As a man, Jesus didn’t know when he would be returning to earth before his death. As a man, Jesus bled and died for us. Jesus is 100% man, but that doesn’t negate the fact that he is also deity! By that I’m NOT saying he is the Father, for he isn’t. Jesus is a separate person from the Father, yet he is God by nature too.
QUESTION for you: Are YOU worshiping the one, who has ALL authority (power) in heaven?
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Mat 28:18)
I worship my precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (as his apostles did) for various reasons, including the fact that he has ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN (Mt. 28:18). I can tell from your email, that is NOT the Lord Jesus you know about. Hence, there are significant problems in your theology, but you don’t seem open enough to consider them. I hope I’m wrong about that! Here’s another question for you: Have YOU asked Jesus for living water:
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” (John 4:10)
The reason many can’t is because:
- they don’t know the gift of God and
- they don’t know who Jesus is
Hence, if you are like them, you don’t have the living water which could be yours! Here is more precious information about how to get eternal life. Remember John 5:39,40.
