Is Jesus lower than God the Father because He came as the son? Are God the Father and God the Son one and the same God? Are they one entity or two different Gods? Let us examine this through the Bible.

Isaiah 9:6  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

When we look in the Old Testament, the prophet Isaiah prophesied that a child (a son) would be born. Many Christians agree that this is a prophecy about Jesus. However when we examine this passage carefully, what were Jesus’ titles? He was called Mighty God and Everlasting Father. Thus, this was a prophecy that God the Father, Jehovah would be born on this earth as a man in a flesh. Although Jesus was born in the flesh, He is in very nature God the Father, Jehovah.

Jesus’ disciples understood this very clearly and boldly testified in their letters.

Romans 9:5  Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.

Philippians 2:5-6  In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

In the New Testament, Jesus’ disciples explained that God (referring to God the Father, Jehovah) and the Messiah (Christ) Jesus are one and the same. The disciples understood that although Jesus looked like a normal man with the appearance like that of theirs, He is actually God the Father, Jehovah in very nature. Therefore God the Father, Jehovah and God the Son, Jesus are one and the same God.
