Is The Holy Spirit Just A Emanation Of God The Father?

How Can One Believe Jesus As Lord And Ever Say He Was Just A Servant Of God And Only A Man?

Question: I believe Jesus as Lord but also believe he was just a man and a servant of God, Father God in heaven is the one God and Creator of all the universe. Holy Spirit also is some one who is just a emanation of God the Father. What do you think?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus wonderful name!

Please prove these seven following statements as otherwise through the Scripture if you believe what you think is right, and also if you think you are saved as a Christian and have become a child of God.

1) If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, no man can be saved
(Rom 10:13).

2) If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, then the Father Himself need not call him as God
(Heb 1:8).

3) If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, then why should apostle John call Him as the Word who created the earth and the heaven in the beginning of time
(John 1:1-5), and also Paul called him as the one who created the world and all that is in it (Col 1:16).

4) If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, then He could not forgive sins of humans
(Matt 9:3-4, 5-6; Mark 2:7; Luke 5:21). If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, then the Father need not call him as my beloved Son which makes Him equal to the Father (Matt 3:17; Php 2:6).

5) If JESUS CHRIST is not GOD, He could not call God as Father which without doubt makes Him equal with God
(John 5:18). We call God as Father through Jesus Christ and not apart from Him and like Him (Eph 1:6; Col 1:13-14, 15), so do not mix the two and get confused of the Divinity of Jesus Christ (John 8:42; 20:17).

6) JESUS CHRIST being GOD left his heavenly glory and have to become a man so that we could become children of God
(John 17:5; Php 2:6-8). Therefore after His death, he again regained all the glory which He left in heaven (Php 2:9-11).

7) JESUS CHRIST being GOD never ceased from being God, and if he had he could not be God at all as God cannot cease from being a God because of His nature
(Jam 1:13). So when Jesus became a man, in the person of his spirit (Isa 9:6), he was still God but chose to use none of that power in being obedient to the Father God in heaven by His own will, and he did it so that he could live a sinless life of obedience through suffering and thus bringing salvation to all mankind and bring them all back to God in friendship which was lost by our forefather Adam in the Garden of Eden because of his disobedience to Him (Matt 4:1-11; John 10:17-18; Heb 10:8-10; 2:10-11; 5:7-8).

Jesus Christ was the one and only person on earth who was fully human and fully God 100% of time, all else on earth who boast to be god are actually men whose breath is in their nostrils by the mercy and grace of God
(1 Tim 2:5, 3; Isa 2:22). Of course Jesus Christ as the perfect model of a servant of God, because he had no sin and also did no sin which God hates and that which causes a great impenetrable gulf between them (Luke 16:26; 1 Peter 2:22; 2 Cor 5:21).

Jesus is called the Son of God in many places in the New Testament
(Matthew 27:54; Mark 1:1; John 1:49; 3:18; 2 Corinthians 1:19, etc.). But Jesus is also called the servant of God in Acts 3:26, "For you first, God raised up His Servant, and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.” So how can Jesus be both the Son of God and the servant of God?

When Jesus is called the Son of God according to the Scripture, it means he was claiming equality with God without ever revealing who He was or taking authority as a Creator over his creation
(John 5:18; Php 2:6), but as a obedient servant of God in being a example to his creation so that they can follow him willingly and be restored of their rightful authority as the sons of God which was lost by our forefather Adam in the garden of Eden (Php 2:8).

In other words, the hidden appearance of God as a man is Jesus Christ in the flesh, once the realization of the pact He has made in the eternity past with God the Father was remembered and reminded, he did not consider as robbery to be equal with God as he was in the form of God within his spirit as the Son of God was given from heaven to humanity 
(Php 2:5-6; Isa 9:6). Thus the Son of God in the spirit was God, the soul was the Mediator between God and Humans who came in to existence and was experiencing the Divine within and the Human from without (Eph 2:14-18), thus becoming a bond servant of God on behalf of God and Humans in one body humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death which is even the death of the Cross (Php 2:5-8).

Thus as such, under The Law, he came to serve those who are lost by being an example to them and dying for them, just as Jesus himself explained about the servant part by saying,
"just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." (Matt. 20:28).

Jesus had and has two natures, both divine in his spirit and human from the flesh
(Col. 2:9), was made under The Law (Gal. 4:4), and for a while when he was alive on earth was lower than the angels (Heb. 2:9), but was restored back to be both perfect God and perfect human which is higher than all created things both humans and angels (Php 2:9-11).

The Holy Spirit is not just a emanation of God, but rather God Himself who know each and everything that only God knows
(1 Cor 2:11). The Spirit of God was present at and involved in the creation (Genesis 1:2; Psalm 33:6). The Holy Spirit moved the prophets of God with the words of God (2 Peter 1:21). The bodies of those in Christ are described as temples of God because the Holy Spirit is in us (1 Corinthians 6:19). Jesus was clear that to be “born again,” to become a Christian, one must be born “of the Spirit” (John 3:5).

One of the most convincing statements in the Bible about the Holy Spirit being God is found in Acts 5. When Ananias lied about the price of a piece of property, Peter said that Satan had filled Ananias’s heart to
“lie to the Holy Spirit” (Acts 5:3) and concluded by saying that Ananias had “lied to God” (verse 4). Peter’s words equate the Holy Spirit with God; he spoke as if the Spirit and God were one and the same. Thus we come to understand from the Scripture that the Holy Spirit is a unique person within the Trinity, in which the other two unique persons are the Father God and Jesus Christ the Son of God. They are one God who are three in persons.

That is, the Bible describes the Holy Spirit as a person, not a mere force. He can be grieved
(Ephesians 4:30). He has a will (1 Corinthians 12:4-7). He uses His mind to search the deep things of God (1 Corinthians 2:10). And He has fellowship with believers (2 Corinthians 13:14). Clearly, the Spirit is a person, just as the Father and the Son are persons.

Just because of your lack of understanding about Jesus or the Holy Spirit cannot make them any less than who they are really as one God. The three members of the Trinity show up, together yet distinct, at Jesus’ baptism. As Jesus comes up from the water, the Spirit descends on Him like a dove while the voice of the Father is heard from heaven saying that He is pleased with His beloved Son who was on earth
(Mark 1:10–11) and Jesus reiterated the same when he told after his resurrection to give baptism to his new followers and disciples to provide them a seal of heavenly citizenship spiritually in the name of Trinity and not just his name (Matt 28:19-20). I think that you need to adjust and align your thinking according to the Word of God revealed in the Scriptures, and not try to change it the way you believe wrongly.

If Jesus Christ is ever your Lord
(1 Cor 12:3), He must be your God the Savior too (1 Tim 2:3), otherwise He cannot become your God and neither can the Father in heaven can become your God too (Matt 6:9; 1 John 2:23; 5:12). Then you must humble yourself as a sinner in need of the Savior before God the Father to become born again to gain the understanding of Jesus as both God and man (John 3:3). Anyone who just calls Jesus as Lord, Lord without ever knowing fully what it means to call Him as Lord and do the will of God will end up in hell fire just as it has been revealed by Jesus in the Bible, so it is better to turn to Jesus whole heartedly and do the commandments of God to know Jesus as your true Lord and Savior before it becomes too late in hell (Matt 7:21-29).

Trinity cannot be divided to become separate deities, and three separate god because of the lack of your understanding regarding the truth to wrongly believe that the Father God in heaven is the one God and Creator of all the universe without the structure of the Trinity behind him. Even the Jehovah Witness cult has been misled with the same problem of making Jesus to be just a man and servant of God and even a arch-angel like Michael or Gabriel, but nothing can be so far away from the truth as this is. So be beware of the last day deception and stand only in the truth of the Bible.

Much Blessings...
