Christ’s Words Prove He Isn’t God

Jn 14:10 The words that I say to you I don’t speak on my own initiative, but the Father abiding in me does His works.

The Jews that were born from above never would have believed Christ was God, because they believed in one God (Eph 4:5-6).

Eph 4:5  One Lord [Yeshua the Messiah (Christ)], one faith, one baptism [baptism in the Holy Spirit]

Eph 4:6  one God and Father of all, who is over all and in all [in all who are born of the Spirit].

Yeshua Christ spoke the words of God, therefore to the Jews that believed Yeshua was the Son of God, Yeshua was God’s representative, God lived in the man Yeshua Christ by the Spirit (Jn 14:10).

Jn 14:10  Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own initiative, but the Father abiding in me does His works,

therefore those who saw Christ, saw God (Jn 10:30 & Jn 20:28),

Jn 10:30  I and the Father are one.
Jn 20:28  Thomas said to Yeshua Christ, my Lord, and my God

The words that Christ spoke were not his own words, he spoke the words that God gave him to say (Jn 7:16 & 12:49).

Jn 7:16  Christ therefore answered them and said, my teaching is not mine, but His who sent me.

Jn 12:49  For I did not speak of myself, but the Father Himself who sent me has given me commandment, what to say, and what to speak.

Since Yeshua Christ was & is the Son of God (Jn 9:35 & 20:31).  Jn 9:35 Yeshua heard that they had put him out; and finding him, Yeshua said, Do you believe in the Son of man?  Jn 20:31  these have been written that you might believe that Yeshua is the Christ (the Messiah), the Son of God and that believing, you might have life in his name.

The statement “in his name” in John 20:31 is referring to believing Yeshua is the Christ, it is not referring to believing in the name “Yeshua”,

to worship Yeshua Christ is to worship God, those that honor the Son, honor God (Jn 5:23),

Jn 5:23  In order that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father,

those that believe Yeshua is the Christ, believe in God (Jn 12:44),

Jn 12:44  And Yeshua Christ cried out and said, he who believes in me does not believe in me, but in Him who sent me.

because God sent Yeshua Christ to speak the truth to the people (Jn 8:40).

Jn 8:40  But now you seek to kill me [Christ], a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard from God.

Christ was not equal to God, Christ said God is greater than him (Jn 13:16), Jn 13:16 “Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master; neither is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him”.

& Christ said God is greater than all (Jn 10:29), Jn 10:29 “My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all”.

The trinity teaching says, God, the Son & the Holy Spirit are equal, but that can’t be true because Christ said God is greater than all, & Christ said God is greater than him, the words that God had Christ say prove the truth that the trinity teaching is false.

The words that Christ said prove he isn’t God.

Lk 22:69-70 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. Then they all said, are you then the Son of God? And Christ said, yes, I am. Since Christ said he is the Son of God, there is absolutely no way the Apostles would ever say Christ is God.

2 Cor 5:16  Consequently, from now on we [who are born from above] estimate {and} regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]. [No] even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint {and} as a man, yet now [we have such knowledge of him that] we know him no longer [in terms of the flesh].

2 Cor 5:17  Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh {and} new has come!

2 Cor 5:18  Now all {these} things are from God, Who through Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him].

2 Cor. 5:19  namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world [God’s chosen people] to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

2 Cor 5:18-19 prove Jn 1:1 doesn’t say Christ is God.

Jn 1:1 English translation of the Greek text – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and God was the Word.

The Bible doesn’t contradict itself, since 2 Cor 5:19 says, “God was in Christ”, then Jn 1:1 doesn’t say, “Christ is God”.

Eph 4:6 says God lives in all who are born from above, God lives in all who are born from above by the Holy Spirit that lives in those who are born from above, just as God lived in Christ by the Holy Spirit that lived in Christ.

The Holy Spirit is what made Christ & God one, and the Holy Spirit is what makes those who are born of the Spirit, one with God and Christ.

Jn 17:21  That they all [all who believe Yeshua is the Messiah] may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe {and} be convinced that You have sent me.

Jn 8:32  you shall know the truth & the truth shall make you free – Yeshua Christ

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “Christ is God”, but the words of Christ don’t agree with that teaching.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “Christ is God”, because the Bible does not say that. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something different than what the Bible says.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something different than what the Bible says a Christian is supposed to believe, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10  But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
