The Joshua Stone
Is Jesus God?
Is Jehovah God with a capital G? Yes...
Does the Bible speak of Jesus as the capital G? Yes...
You see, although Jesus was created, he becomes what his Father is in full, fully worshiped as God.
In the original languages all letters were capitalized, so what we are talking about is concept. The term "god" cannot be used to identify Father and Son, nor rank. There were many gods, and even men were called gods. All letters in the original writings were capital, so every instance of god looked like this: "GOD". Jesus was god, so was Satan, and so were many men. So you must understand their rankings from the context of the text in which the word appears. Now however, when we speak of God, we think of the one who is worshiped, spoken to in our prayers.
Now let's start with the fact that the Bible does describe Jesus as equal to Jehovah in everything except the fact that Jehovah is called the God of God (Jesus).
Now look at this;
Heb 1:8 "But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom." (NIV)
No matter how the Watchtower wants to talk away this scripture, it is describing Jesus as God, period. Now the question we should be asking is why.
Psm 45:6 "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom." (NIV)
Now let's bring it all together by reading;
Psm 45:7 "You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy."
Therefore Jehovah is Jesus's God, and at some point Jesus becomes God. The term here as "God your God" is to denote superiority. Yes Jesus's God is superior to him, but they are spoken of as having the same responsibilities under them. These scriptures place Jesus equally with Jehovah in everything except Jehovah's superiority over him.
So the Watchtower has spent all these years trying to prove Jesus is not the same individual as Jehovah, but at the same time failed to recognize the real status Jesus obtains. While in reality the truth lies in between the Trinity and the JW's. Yes Jesus becomes equal to Jehovah as to worship, but he will always have his God, his Father.
Heb 1:6 "And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
Jesus is already worshiped by angels. So is it a stretch to say that he will be worshiped when he begins ruling on earth? Nope... It's obvious that's what will happen, until the end of the 1000 years when all things will be turned back to Jehovah and he will be the only God in all to all. Jesus will achieve exactly what Satan wanted, to be God over all things, what amazing insight, and it all comes out of Gods plan...
Jesus was the very first creation by Jehovah his God, and Jesus created everything else. He's only given the status of God by his God in order to fulfill his plan until that status is returned to Jehovah at the end of the 1000 years.
