In our quest to understand as much as we possibly can about God, I believe it is important to take a look at the following descriptions from Scripture, and then consider how many there really can be?
It should be noted that Many of the above mentioned verses are emphatic that there is but ONE who holds the before mentioned title! Thus it can truthfully be said:
IF Jehovah is the First and last, then for Jesus to also be the first and the last, Jesus MUST be Jehovah in flesh!
IF Jehovah is the Almighty, and He is the Alpha and Omega, then Jesus IS Jehovah in flesh!
IF Jehovah is the Only Redeemer, then for Jesus to also be our Redeemer, then Jesus is Jehovah manifest in flesh!
IF there is NO Savior besides Jehovah, then for Jesus to be our Savior HE MUST be Jehovah incarnate!
IF we have one Father who is Jehovah, then for Jesus to be the visual representation of the Father, He MUST be Jehovah manifest in flesh!
IF there is but ONE Spirit, and the context of John 4:24, clearly indicates that this is referring to the Father, then for us to have the Spirit of Christ, is really to have the Spirit of the One God who was incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ!
IF there is absolutely NO ONE besides Jehovah, then for Jesus to be deity in any way is for him to embody all the fullness of Jehovah!
IF there is but one Creator of all things, and the Old Testament language is clearly emphatic that Jehovah is that One Creator, then for Jesus to be called the creator, HE must be the enfleshment of the One Spirit that is Jehovah!
What must be understood, is that IF Jehovah is God, and there is only ONE God, then IF Jesus is God in any way, HE MUST be the incarnation of Jehovah, or God in flesh!
There is but ONE God who is a Spirit! He has manifest Himself in various ways through out time. But HE Alone is the One and Only GOD!
