Post subject: Jesus Christ King of the Old Testament
User Location: Russia
Excuse me please, let me attract your attention to the words of
Jesus Christ (in an episode when Jesus Christ has taken a cross)
in the film “The Passion of the Christ” of Mel Gibson:
“I am your servant, Father.
Your servant, and the son of Your handmaid”.
Excuse me please and please don’t angry to me, but it is a very
big mistake, because God the Father has given birth to Jesus Christ, but has not created.
“I will declare the decree: God has told to Me: You are My Son, today I have begotten You” (Psalm 2:7).
Jesus Christ is the eternal given birth Son, not created. Jesus Christ is not “the son of God’s handmaid”, He is the eternal given birth Son.
And there is in the New Testament such words of Jesus Christ are not present.
Please inform Mel Gibson about it.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one God, but only the second Person of
the Holy Trinity is the King - Lord Jesus Christ, and we must not to
There is in the Old Testament Lord Jesus Christ said:
"I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King"
There is the Old Testament of the Holy Scripture tell us about it.
It is the great and beautiful message, what keep the Holy Scripture
to the God’s glory.
Please let me attract your attention my small article “Jesus Christ – King of the Old Testament”.
Excuse me please my mistakes in English, I am sorry, I don't speak English.
God bless you,

Jesus Christ – King of the Old Testament
Many assert, that Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but that He is not the God, completely ignoring that fact, that under law of Moses the Son of God means only one – “equal to the God” and “the God, as well as His Father”. Verses of the Holy Scripture where Jews condemn Jesus Christ that He names himself Son of God testify to it:
“Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God” (John. 5:18);
“The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God” (John. 10:33).
Therefore any person who declares itself, that he is the Son of God, under law Moses makes itself equal to the God, makes itself by the God, naming the Father of the God, that under law Moses is classified as blasphemy, and adequately death what of Jews and have declared Pontius Pilate, condemning Jesus Christ on death:
“The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God” (John. 19:7).
From what follows, that if Lord Jesus Christ is not the God as well as His Father Jews have acted fairly, having condemned Jesus Christ on death. Who today will dare to make the similar application?
Law of Moses speaks that Lord Jesus Christ is the true Son God, equal to the God and the God, as well as His Father.
Words “sons of God” in relation to the man in the Holy Scripture specify that it sons of God on good fortune, instead of by the nature as Jesus Christ, and to confuse these two concepts is inadmissible:
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God” (Romans 8:14);
“nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the Angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection” (Luke 20:36).
And only Jesus Christ is Son God by the nature, is equal to the God and the God, as well as His Father:
“For to which of the Angels did He ever say: “You are My Son, today I have begotten You?” (Hebrews 1:5).
“I have made the earth, and created man on it” (Isaiah 45:12)
Sons of God are creature of God, but only Jesus Christ is begotten Son, not created.
God the Father and the Son of God Jesus Christ are the two separate Persons having the nature of the God, and to mix the Father and the Son in one Person is inadmissible.
The God is one, but the Persons having the nature of the God, not one.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Deuteronomy 6:4);
“I will announce the definition: God has told to Me: You are My Son, today I have begotten You” (Psalm 2:7).
Set of these two verses gives the full basis to name Lord Jesus Christ “one more Person”, having the nature of the God. To name Jesus Christ “one more God” in aggregate with told in Deuteronomy 6:4 “the Lord is one” - means to contradict to definition of God, what Jesus Christ announced in Psalm 2:7.
From what follows, that the “God is one” is definition of God, which the Son of God in 7-th verse of 2-nd Psalm has solemnly declared.
“I will announce the definition’ - the words of 7-th verse of 2-nd Psalm to which today it is not given any value, as if these words in the Holy Scripture is not present. But these words in the Holy Scripture are, and they are told by somebody, but Lord Jesus Christ, and they have the most direct attitude to the nature of the God.
At reading the Holy Scripture at the person the impression is created, that on behalf of the God in the Old Testament is submitted speaking only one Person, God the Father, but at close examination it is simple to define, that it is far from being so.
“God said to Moses, “I am Who I am (Jehovah)”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, I am has sent me to you. » (Exodus 3:14).
Who is submitted speaking in the Exodus 3:14 Father, the Son or Holy Spirit? Today practically everyone, not reflecting will answer, that it is the God the Father while except for the Father speaking can be submitted both the Son and Holy Spirit.
Let's result a verse of the Old Testament in which Father is submitted speaking only:
“Thus says God the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and its offspring, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it,” (Isaiah 42:5).
Verses of the Old Testament in which the Son is submitted speaking only:
“Surely My hand founded the earth, and My right hand spread out the heavens;
when I call to them, they stand together” (Isaiah 48:13);
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me” (Isaiah 43:10,11);
Verse of the Old Testament in which it is submitted speaking only Holy Spirit:
“The Lord said to Moses, “How long will this people spurn Me” (Numbers 14:11).
About a verse in which it is submitted speaking Holy Spirit, prophet Isaiah has mentioned:
“But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit;” (Isaiah 63:10).
The special attention should be turned on verses of the Old Testament in which the word “King” in relation to the God because in all these verses King is only the Son of God Lord Jesus Christ about what the God the Father has told to us in 6-th verse of 2-nd psalm is mentioned:
“Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion” (Psalm 2:6).
Therefore further in all verses in the Old Testament in the Holy Scripture where the word “King” in relation to the God is mentioned the Son, not Father and not Holy Spirit is submitted, and to confuse these concepts besides is inadmissible:
“I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King” (Isaiah 43:15);
Speaking only about the Father, we speak about the one God, speaking only about the Son, we speak about the one God, speaking only about the Holy Spirit, we speak about the one God, speaking about the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, we speak about the one God, but not about one Person. That is why King is only one Person, the Son, and to name King of the Father or Holy Spirit, it means to suppose mixture of Persons that to make it is impossible. The Son of God is the one God, eternal King:
