That’s absolutely right : it certainly is not deceitful to tell the truth. And God is the judge of all of us. BUT he has delegated that task to Jesus Christ…!!
And Jesus gave us His truth in his spoken Word and recorded written Words (see 2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 4:4)
The above is the last part of a post you made earlier.
So your micro-quoting me out of a much larger post out of context to the evidence provided for the statements your quoting. Did you want to consider the whole context to why those claims were being made they are provided in the same post you are quoting from.
In this, you claim that Paul CLOSELY CONNECTS Jesus to YHWH. That is a very strange declaration (‘closely connected’) for what you then declare as a single unified almighty God See, it is true that Jesus IS CONNECTED to YHWH. But the verse in Corinthians makes it absolutely clear that the belief is that Yhwh, the Father, IS THE ONLY GOD… and Jesus Christ, himself states that “Father….. Eternal life depends on believing in YOU, the ONLY TRUE GOD..” So how do you go from claiming that you are telling the truth and then write irreverent claims of Jesus being ‘The only True God’?(ok, you did not write that exactly, but that is what it amounts to!!) If Jesus were God (ridiculous) then how is he to be then ONLY ‘CLOSELY CONNECTED’ to God! See, nonsense! And also, ‘The voice of the Lord said “Who will go for us?’ And I said, “Here I am, send me!!”’ Wow!! So who is ‘The Lord’, and who is it that replied: ‘Send me’? For sure, your answer should be ‘GOD spoke and Jesus volunteered’. But you know that this is a prophesy. It points to the time in the future when Jesus is called BY GOD and goes to the river Jordan to be baptised by John the Baptist … and By The Fathers holy SPIRIT as a sign of his future KINGSHIP and PRIESTHOOD
In the days of Jesus and the Apostles their bible was the Hebrew old testament scriptures. Paul was a learned Pharisee and an expert in torah law and the old testament scriptures that pointed to Jesus of course he was making connections to Jesus as YHWH. As evidence I provided the Hebrew Shema referring to "the Lord being God" and "the Lord being one God" from Deuteronomy 6:4.
When comparing 1 Corinthians 8:6 we looked at the origin of the same Greek words translated as God and Lord to show where the Greek words θεός (theós|G2316) translated as God and κύριος (kýrios|G2962) translated as Lord comes from in the Hebrew showing that Lord translated from Greek to English in 1 Corinthians 8:6
comes from the Hebrew word יְהֹוָה (Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068); Lord in context is referring to God in the Hebrew is אֱלֹהִים (ʼĕlôhîym|Adonai Elohim H430) in Deuteronomy 6:4 and this is where the Greek word from Hebrew translates as God θεός (theós|G2316) in 1 Corinthians 8:6
; Also, we noted that the use of the term "one" comes from the Hebrew word אֶחָד (ʼechâd | ekh-awd' - H259) translated in the Greek as εἷς (heîs|hice G1520) whivh also has plural application like echad.
Paul speaking in 1 Corinthians 8:6 is stating that unlike the gentile gods that are many there is one God (εἷς (heîs same as the Hebrew אֶחָד ʼechâd which has plural meaning to unity or oneness or unification). In 1 Corinthians 8:6 Paul says that this one God is the father the creator of all thing and includes Jesus as one Lord that is κύριος kýrios translated from Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068), which is a reference to Jesus as the God of the old testament scripture and also Jesus as being the creator of all things including mankind. Like the father being referred to as God Jesus as Lord (kýrios translated from Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068) is being referred to as the God of creation and the old testament.
We dug a little deeper. 1 Corinthians 8:6 stated both God the father and Jesus as Lord God (kýrios translated from Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068) were the creators of heaven and earth. We then looked at the plural
applications of the God of creation from Genesis 1:26 And God said, LET US
MAKE MAN IN OUR
IMAGE, AFTER OUR
LIKENESS: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth and again in Genesis 3:22 “Then the Lord God said, BEHOLD, THE MAN HAS BECOME LIKE ONE OF US
, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and also take from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever.” and again in Genesis 11:7 that says “COME, LET US
GO DOWN AND CONFUSE THEIR LANGUAGE so they will not understand each other. This of course all in agreement with 1 Corinthians 8:6 showing that Jesus and God the father are the creators of Heaven and Earth. Was the Holy Spirit involved at creation? Yes see Genesis 1:2. So you have God the father, Jesus and the Spirit of God all involved in the creation of heaven and earth.
From here we looked again at Deuteronomy 6:4 The Lord our God is ONE
God. The Hebrew word meaning is אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259 which is a derivation: a numeral from אָחַד; its meaning is properly, united
, i.e. as one
; or (as an ordinal) first KJV: a, alike
, alone, altogether
, and, any(-thing), apiece, a certain, (dai-) ly, each (one), [phrase] eleven, every, few, first, [phrase] highway, a man, once, one, only, other, some, together
. Then provided scripture examples to prove that אֶחָד ʼechâd translated from Hebrew to English as "one" can have plural meaning comparing the following scriptures...
Compare with these scriptures here (there are more but we can use these as examples)...
- DEUTERONOMY 6:4 4, Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is ONE GOD (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259)
- GENESIS 2:24 24, Therefore shall a MAN leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his WIFE: and THEY SHALL BE ONE FLESH (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259).
- GENESIS 11:6 And the LORD said, BEHOLD, THE PEOPLE IS ONE (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259), and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
- GENESIS 34:15 16, Then will we give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and WE WILL BECOME ONE PEOPLE (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259).
- EXODUS 12:49 49, ONE LAW (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259) shall be to him that is home born, and to the stranger that sojournes among you.
- EXODUS 24:3… all the people answered with ONE VOICE (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259)…
- JUDGES 20:8 All the people arose as ONE MAN (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259)…
- JOHN 10:30 I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE. (אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259 is the translating origin of the Greek εἷς (heîs)
All of the above proving plural application to אֶחָד (ʼechâd | H259 translated as one in unification, unity oneness. So not only does the earlier post prove that Jesus is Lord God of the old testament (kýrios translated from Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068) that Paul was referring to. It also shows that Jesus and God are one God plural Gods of creation as shown in Genesis and creation in Genesis 1:26 which also agrees with 1 Corinthians 8:6 and Paul's claim that God the Father and Jesus as Lord God Yᵉhôvâh | YHWH; yeh-ho-vaw' H3068 that κύριος (kýrios) is taken from. This is why Jesus says in John 10:30
I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE!
