Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Many Christians identify the Lord Jesus as the Son of God on the basis of this verse. However, is it the truth? It is recorded in John 14:8 that Philip said to the Lord Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and it suffises us.” How did the Lord Jesus answer him? He said to Philip, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father? Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak to you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwells in me, he does the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake” (John 14:9-11). The Lord Jesus said clearly here, “he that has seen me has seen the Father.” Thus it can be seen that the Lord Jesus is the very appearance of God Himself. Here, the Lord Jesus didn’t say it is Father-Son relationship between Him and God, but just said “he that has seen me has seen the Father,” “I and my Father are one.” It is the same as God’s words say, “There are still those who say, did not God expressly state that Jesus was His beloved Son? ‘Jesus is the beloved Son of God, in whom He is well pleased’ was certainly spoken by God Himself. That was God bearing witness to Himself, but merely from a different perspective, that of the Spirit in heaven bearing witness to His own incarnation. Jesus is His incarnation, not His Son in heaven. Do you understand? Do not the words of Jesus, ‘The Father is in Me and I am in the Father,’ indicate that They are one Spirit? And is it not because of the incarnation that They were separated between heaven and earth? In reality, They are still one; no matter what, it is simply God bearing witness to Himself”. Hence, according to God’s words, can we confirm that the Lord Jesus is God Himself, there is only one God, and the idea of the Father and the Son is completely wrong.
