Highly Exalted

John 3:34; 4:34; 5:19; 6:38; 12:49+50; 14:10; 17:8, 14 The Gospel of John clearly shows Jesus' willing subordination to God.

John 7:16-18; 8:49 and 50; 14:13; 15:8 All that Jesus did and said was aimed at glorifying God.

John 16:23-28 Our prayers are to the Father in his name.

John 5:19-32 Jesus makes clear His relationship with God. God is the Father and Jesus Christ is the Son. Two separate beings connected perfectly because of the willing subordination of the son to the Father.

Philippians 2:6-11 He humbled himself therefore God highly exalted him.

Ephesians 1:2+3 The Father, son relationship simply stated.

Ephesians 1:20-23 Jesus is far above all rule and authority. He is the head over all things to the church.

John 14:15-21 The spirit replaces the ascended Christ.

John 15:26 Jesus will send the spirit of truth which comes from the Father.

John 16:12-15 The spirit represents Christ to us, Christ represents God.

Acts 2:1-4 and 33 Jesus pours forth the spirit.

Acts 3:6-16 Peter heals through his name.

Acts 7:54-60 Stephen saw Jesus in heaven.

Acts 9:4-16 Jesus called Paul, as he did the apostles, to speak for him. An apostle is one under the authority of Christ sent on the mission to preach the gospel.

Acts 5:18-20 Angel of the Lord.

Acts 10:3 Angel of God.

Acts 12:7 Angel of the Lord.

The predominant way the believers were lead by the Lord was by the holy spirit.

Revelation 2:1 Jesus walks among the churches.

Acts 4:23-31 The believers prayed to God for they never mixed up that which their Lord Jesus taught regarding their relationship to God the Father and His son our Lord. The believers never prayed to Jesus, they never worshipped Jesus, they never sang praises to Jesus, they never generated a conversation with Jesus. They honored Jesus by obedience to his written commands and spirit leadings. Jesus always glorified God as did his disciples.

I Corinthians 15:20-28 The final conclusion.
