Q. What does the above verse teach us?
A. The Father is God and Jesus is Lord! No Trinity!
Q. What does the verse signify?
|GOD is ONE.
God is God of Jesus Christ.
Can you accept that the Father is indeed God of you and Jesus?
|As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
(1 Corinthians 8:4 KJV)
|Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
(Ephesians 1:3 KJV)
|Are you able to kneel down and pray to the God of Jesus?
Are you able to pray to the God Jesus prayed to?
|For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(Ephesians 3:14 KJV)
|And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
(Luke 22:41 KJV)
YHWH is God and Father of our Lord Jesus.
Its amazing how Jesus’ God is not your God and Jesus’ Father is not your Father.
|Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
(1 Peter 1:3 KJV)
|At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
(Matthew 11:25-26 KJV)
Jesus teaches us how to honour/worship the Father and how to honour/worship the son.
|But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
(Matthew 23:8-10 KJV)
|Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
(John 13:13 KJV)
God hath made that Jesus both Lord and Christ.
Here it means clearly that God had exalted him to be the king so long expected; and that he had given him dominion in the heavens, or, as we should say, made him ruler of all things
|Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
(Acts 2:36 KJV)
|When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.
(John 17:1-2 ESV)
And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. (John 17:3 ESV)
Avoid the word Trinity as the bible does not attempt to explain any such concept.
- God is God and Father of Jesus Christ.
- Jesus is the son of God
- God exalts Jesus because through Jesus salvation has come.
- Jesus is our Lord or Master.

There is one body and one Spirit–just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call– one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:4-6 ESV)
