We know that Jesus Christ is God and man. Jesus Christ is God in human flesh (II Corinthians 5:19). Isaiah said, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14)." Immanuel meaning "God IS WITH us. John tells us in John 1:1-4, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth."
Jesus is repeatedly called "the Son of God" and also "the Son of Man". Mary was used of God as the host to bring forth the body of Jesus' humanity. Jesus had no human father. When the angel told Mary that she would conceive and have a son, she replied, "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man (Luke 1:31-34)?" The angel responded by saying, "The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Luke 1:35)." the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:20). The Annunciation begins "the fullness of time" (Gal 4:4). Mary conceived Jesus the eternal Son of the Father in a humanity drawn from her own in whom the "whole fullness of deity" dwells "bodily." (Col 2:9).
Jesus as a man had a human mother, but God was His father, hence he was called “Jesus the Son of God”. Although Jesus was a fully human person, he also was and is fully God. Philippians 2:6 makes it clear that he is God, and that he set aside the use of some of his attributes to take on the form of the human, and die for the sins of the world. Titus 2:13 equates Jesus with God. Romans 9:6 describes him as God, who is blessed forever. And in Revelation 5:13 and 14 portray Christ as deity.
The Father is God (John 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Peter 1:2). The Son is God (John 1:1, 14; Romans 9:5; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 5:20). The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16).
All men are sons of God because we are His offspring (Acts 17:28), descendants from Adam (Luke 3:38). God's people are adopted "sons of God," Jesus is the only Son of God by nature (Rom. 8: 14-16). The spiritual relationship of Christ to the Father is not like the physical relationship men have with their sons (Isaiah 55:8, 9).
Only accept by faith through His word that Jesus is both God and with God; He is both God and the Son of God. As God, He is worthy of our worship and adoration. The Father is designated as Lord(Mt 11.25)and also as God(1 Cor 8.6).The Son is designated as Lord(Rom 15.6 )as well as as God (Titus 2.13, Heb 1:8). The Holy Spirit is designated as Lord (2 Cor 3.17) as well as The Holy Spirit is designated as God(Acts 5.3-4). There is only one God in the Old Testament and Jesus is God in the flesh in the New Testament (John 1:1,14). God, The Spirit of God and Jesus Christ are the One and Only True God. THE HOLY Spirit is seen as GOD in the old testament (Ezekiel 36:27, Ezekiel 37:14). God gives the Spirit of God into the hearts of man and leads, guides and helps them to obey the commandments of God (2 Co 3:17). It is clear that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are each God. Jesus, who not only is eternally in God, but is himself eternally God. Word ‘begotten’ is used of Jesus, who is the Son of God. Jesus, being in God and himself God, has no beginning and has no end. “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in him all things consist” (Col.1:15-17).
Conclusion: God is infinite and we are finite and our abilities and intellects are limited.For anyone who perverts the word of God here there is warning "For ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God” (Jeremiah 23:36)."
