Notes:

Genesis 3:1 The devil's methodology is using lies to deceive man. The very first lie was about YAHWEH.

YAHWEH OUR GOD:

Genesis 1:1 Yahweh is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Jesus never created; rather, he too is apart of creation.

Exodus 3:14 & Revelation 4:8 Yahweh is the I AM -- eternal. Jesus has everlasting life since God raised him from the dead; however, his life had a beginning point with his birth.

Deuteronomy 10:17 Yahweh is God. Jesus is not God, rather the Son of God. Thousands of times the Scriptures plainly say that YAHWEH is God; not one time does it say Jesus is God. The only place it comes close to saying it is when Thomas in the excitement of seeing the resurrected Christ shouts out, "My God!"

Deuteronomy 10: 20&21 YAHWEH is to be feared, served, clung to, and praised as YAHWEH, OUR GOD. Jesus was a worshipper, not worshipped.

1Chronicles 29:10-13 Yahweh rules over all with absolute dominion. Jesus has great dominion also, but limited.

Psalm 103:19 God's throne is in heaven; whereas Jesus' throne will be upon earth. Now he sits at God's right hand.

Daniel 4:34&35 His dominion is an everlasting dominion. Jesus' dominion had a beginning, and it will have an end.

Matthew 6:13 - Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Jesus said this about God, not himself.

Revelation 4:11 Because of His will, everything existed.

JESUS IS OUR LORD:

Psalms 2:1-ff Worship God; give homage to Son.

Acts 4:23-28

John 5:19-32 Jesus was subordinate to God. He often explained that God was over all and that he was a humble servant providing the example for us to follow.

Eph. 1:18-23; Phil 2:6-11; (Col. 1:18-20) God gave Jesus authority.

1Peter 3:21&22 Jesus is above all except for God.

1Cor. 15:20-28 In the end, God will be exalted above all, and the Son will also be in subjection to Him. So many sincere committed souls are confused regarding who is who. We need to help people to understand so that God may be all in all and Jesus the Christ may be our Lord.

Acts 4:29, 5-21, 29-31 YAHWEH, help us to present Your message about Your Son!
