God son king and his subjects

For those who believe that Jesus is God and that he is the king, there needs to be established why now in heaven, Jesus is not sitting on the throne of God, but at the right hand of the one we consider to be the Almighty God. For those who think Jesus is God who is then that more important person who sits on the throne of the Most High?

Noteworthy is also that if Jesus is God, he concealed when he would return. For that day will be a very important day in the history of mankind. Not to say the most important day after the creation of man, the fall of man, Jesus his death and resurrection. But when Jesus is God we should say after the time that God brought a theatre piece on earth, because according to the Bible, the infallible Word of God Who is never lying, man neither death can do something to God Who is an eternal Spirit.

For centuries man had to suffer a lot and after the so-called death of the god there still did not come an end to the suffering of man. And we know, according to the Bible, there will take place a very big battle, World War III or Armageddon, and after that there will still be another thousand years before the final peace of the Kingdom of God shall take place.

If God is truly a loving God, there would never have to take such suffering place if he Himself had to come down to safe mankind.  When Jesus is God the occurrence of his death would have saved the people, so why do they still have to continue to live in an uncertain world?
Because the Bible tells us that salvation came to all men by the sacrificial death of Jesus. The Grace of God now rests on every human being.

So why still maintaining this time of that system or world system?

Quite simply because Jesus is not the person many Christians are claiming he would be.
According to God’s own words, Jesus is the son of God and not God Himself, but the sent one from Him who created the world.

That son of God himself has revealed his heavenly Father. He has made God known as a loving God, open to receive every person. Jesus admitted he was lower than angels and that he could do nothing without God, who is placed higher than him and anybody else. That Supreme Being is One Who is eternal, meaning He had no beginning, no birth but also no death and no end.

“3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: {elements: or, rudiments} 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” (Galatians 4:3-7 AV)

“17  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. 18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. 22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.” (John 5:17-27 AV)

“27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28  Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come [again] unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:27-31 AV)

“Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: {lower … : or, while inferior to}” (Hebrews 2:7 AV)

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. {for the: or, by the}” (Hebrews 2:9 AV)

“And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (1 Corinthians 15:28 AV)

It is by the way to the Supreme Omniscient God that the king Jesus later will hand back the kingdom, because the kingdom belongs not to Jesus but to God. For these reasons it is also called God’s Kingdom.

It is true that Jesus in heaven, is permitted as king to rule here on earth, until the time of the handover to his heavenly Father. Jesus will still be king, to reign for ever, here on earth and as mediator between God and man, he shall have many strings in his hands for God and His Kingdom which shall continue without an end.

“For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” (1 Timothy 2:5 AV)

“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel. {covenant: or, testament}” (Hebrews 12:24 AV)

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. {the days: Chaldee, their days} {the kingdom: Chaldee, the kingdom thereof}” (Daniel 2:44 AV)

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: {his … : Gr. the Son of his love}” (Colossians 1:13 AV)

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15 AV)

“The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” (Psalms 110:4 AV)

“24 Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death.” (1 Corinthians 15:24-26 AV)

“And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.” (Daniel 7:14 AV)

“32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” (Luke 1:32-33 AV)

Those who have faith and are attached to Jesus and his heavenly Father and shall have followed their regulations and rules there will then be the possibility to become participants of the body of Christ here on earth.

To become “Partners in Christ” one must see who Christ is and one has to be willing to follow his teachings rather than the teachings of other people who are not sent by God to reveal Jesus his heavenly Father, the God of gods.

For our salvation it is important that we do know Jesus and the One Who sent him to this earth. Nobody can see God and live but many saw Jesus in whom we all can find life, if we are willing to accept who he is, what he did, and what he still shall do for us.

“And he (God) said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.” (Exodus 33:20 AV)

“He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light.” (John 1:8 AV)

“Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I (Jesus) myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.” (Luke 24:39 AV)

“God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 AV)
