Jesus is not Almighty God
Is Jesus God? Yes the bible says so in John 1:1 and Hebrews 1:8. Jesus in heaven was brought forth (Proverbs 8:24-25)(only begotten son of God) from Yehovah, who is almighty God. (Gen 17:1)(Exodus 6:2-3)
In the bible the word God/god means: one who has authority and or power, whatever can in any respect be likened to God, or resembles him in any way: equivalent to God's representative or vicegerent .
So are there 2 Gods? The bible says there are many Gods. (John 10:34)(Psalm 82:6)(Psalm 97:7)(Exodus 7:1)(2 Cor 4:4)
The Old Testament was also translated into Greek prior to Christ and in it and the early Greek New Testament manuscripts they were written with all upper case letters, so translations from those manuscripts, it is the translators that decided whether God is with a capital G(od) or a lower case g(od) based on their current language. Which is why I have no problem just using upper case G(od), it is the context of the scripture that defines who is being referred to.
But doesn't the bible say "besides me there is no god"?(Isaiah 44:6) It does, but what else Does Yehovah say right after that?
"Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen."(Isaiah 44:7)
Almighty God was not saying that there are no other Gods, but there are no other Gods like him, who can declare the end from the beginning, otherwise why did he himself say "I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you."(Psalm 82:6)
Who do we worship? Who did Jesus say to worship? (Matt 6:8-9)(Matt 4:10) It is Yehovah only that we are to worship and serve.
But doesn't the bible say that Jesus was worshiped? The bible does say that (Luke 24:52), but there are 2 forms of worship.
1) Prayer and service/devotion, which is to Yehovah only.
2) Respect and honor, which was payed to Jesus and others. (Rev 3:9)
Is Jesus equal to Yehovah who is the most high God? (Psalm 83:18)(Psalm 97:9)(Gen 14:22)(Deuteronomy 32:8-9)
(2 Samuel 22:14)(Psalm 7:17)(Psalm 9:1-2).
No, Jesus is not equal to his father, is a servant equal to his master? (John 13:16)
Jesus did say "for the Father is greater than I"(John 14:28)
Jesus also said -that his father is greater than all(John 10:29)
Jesus said that his father Yehovah is the only true God.(John 17:3) Also (Jeremiah 10:10)
The apostles wrote that the God of Jesus is Yehovah, his father. (Ephesians 1:3, 17)(Col 1:3)(2 Cor 1:3)
(1 Peter 1:3)(Romans 15:6)(Rev 1:6)
