Bro Eli soriano is a god. I am also a god. All true christians are gods.We, Mcgi, is a congregation of gods.
GOD SAID, THAT HE IS THE GOD OF GODS. He cannot be god of false gods.
DEUT 10:17 FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS THE GOD OF GODS..
Who are these gods?
Jesus referred to the jews who were to stone him, gods!
JOHN10:34-35 JESUS answered them, is it not written in your law, I SAID, YE ARE GODS…IF HE CALLED THEM GODS TO WHOM THE WORD OF GOD CAME and the scriptures cannot be broken.
If we observe, gods are those to whom the words of god came, logically, the righteous people. The law came to the jews thus they are gods. But is it only to them that received the words of god? WE RECEIVED TOO, ARE WE THEN GODS?
Moreover, The term gods are referring to the judges who judge with god almighty in judgment day.
PSALM82:1,6 GOD STAND IN THE CONGREGATION OF THE MIGHTY. HE JUDGE AMONG THE GODS…I HAVE SAID, YE ARE GODS AND ALL OF YOU ARE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH.
As we can see, god judge among the gods, therefore, the gods are judges themselves together with god. These gods are children of god. These gods received the words of god such as the jews as expressed by jesus. Meaning, these gods are people.
Who then are these gods, children of god, and recipient of the words of god, who judge together with god?
THEY ARE THE SAINTS.
PSALMS149:6-9 let the high praises of god be in their mouth and a two edge sword in their hand TO EXECUTE VENGEANCE UPON THE HEATHEN AND PUNISHMENTS UPON THE PEOPLE…TO EXECUTE UPON THEM THE JUDGMENT WRITTEN. THIS HONOR HAVE ALL HIS SAINTS…
Clearly stated, ALL SAINTS, jews or christians, have the honor to be judges in judgment day, and as god said, he judge among the gods, implying the gods are judges with god and bec all saints are judges, then logically they are the one referred to as gods, as there are no one that judge with god other than the saints. Though god almighty gave All the judgment right to jesus, and he as mere observer won’t participate, he was the supreme judge among them as it was from him that made the verdict for the people even before the creation of the world.
GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE ONLY SUPREME JUDGE-THE ONLY SOURCE OF VERDICT!
There is one lawgiver and judge (heis estin [ho] nomothetes kai krites) who is able to save or to destroy. Who then are you to judge your neighbor?” James 4:12
“Nor does the Father judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to his Son… And he gave him power to exercise judgment, because he is the Son of Man.” John 5:22, 27
“He commissioned us to preach to the people and testify that he is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead.” Acts 10:42 – cf. 17:30-31
ONE JUDGE speaks of it in terms of being the sole verdict-maker, and not as designation in terms of secondary function–the relay of verdict–which Jesus was commissioned along the saints as their duty as judges.
What does one judge means?
It means, the source of verdict!
1 Chronicles 29:14
But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
All things come from god including verdict.
Bec only him knows the heart of men and nothing hid from him.
1 Kings 8:39
Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
God can see the future,as implied in many verses, including the heart, and no secret is hid from him thus logically, he is the only reliable source of judicial verdict in judgment day. Though jesus, can read the heart of all men, he cannot see the future as stated, “he do not know the hour of his return!”, thus he is not a credible judge in terms of giving verdict, as evidently, god as the only qualified verdict-giver, has written already beforehand significant records of deeds in the book of life, as he has foreseen the future before the creation of the world which jesus lacking the foresight cannot, as implied,
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world,
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Therefore, even before man existed, the tallies of man’s deeds were already written for it to be known who would be saved or not.
Therefore, the verdict was already made before mankind existed and it could only be by the one judge who could see the future. Jesus cannot see the future nor anyone could, thus they being commisioned judges, simply means, judges in terms of pronouncing god’s verdict and not the function as characteristic of the integral one judge, who is a judge by virtue of being the source of the verdict, thus saying, one judge, implies an exclusive title, for god only. God relinquish participation in judgment day, as implied is mere observer, as the commissioned judges do the actual serving of verdict he beforehand wrote in the book of life, as implied,
Nor does the Father judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to his son
It means, he won’t participate in the judgment process and activities during those times, but preferring to be the one supreme judge as characterized by being the verdict-maker!
Thus, judge, per se in its inherent meaning, speaks of anyone in its category as judges but saying, one judge, cannot qualify anyone except god almighty bec he is the only verdict-maker!
Therefore when it say,
HE JUDGE AMONG THE GODS (judges)
TO JUDGE, THIS HONOR HAVE ALL THE SAINTS
It simply means, God judges with saints by being the source of the verdict which these saints would be endorsed to execute. We, in Mcgi, are saints. Thus we are judges. Thus we are gods as implied by context. The question is, are we true gods?
BOTH JESUS AND GOD ALMIGHTY SHARES EQUAL NATURE as implied:
PHIL 2:6 JESUS IS IN THE SHAPE/NATURE OF GOD..
Thus naturally, both god and jesus having the same shape or nature of god, share equal bodily essence. That bodily essence is the true god, as all man sharing the same bodily components are true man, so likewise with god. Nevertheless, righteous men are also gods as illustrated above not in bodily essence but in state of being, that is as judge and children of god implied above. Being judges and children of god makes them gods. In that aspect, they are true gods. How come?
DEUT say god is god of gods. PSALMS say to children of god-all saints who are judges with god- ye are gods…These are true gods in essence of how god call them gods, meaning, they are gods as they are children of god and judges with god.
Meaning, there are two kinds of true god.
First, god as a divine nature. Secondly, god as a state of being of righteous men. Nowhere can we read that these gods are false gods, or only gods by name and not by essence. Thus logically, they are true gods.
God as a divine nature is necessary of worship as it say,
2 Thessalonians 2:4
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Logically, true god speaks of two category, firstly, the worshipped(divine god) and secondly, the not worshipped (righteous men)
CAN GOD BE GOD OF FALSE GODS?
AMONG THESE GODS IS MOSES, as god said,
SEE, I MADE THEE A GOD TO PHARAOH…
Moses was made a god, thus he is not a false god or someone called god by name only but not in essence as he was “MADE” a god. God cannot make a god, by name only or a called-god only, as a house is not made a house by name only. Made means, his state of being is god, a true god in the essence of how god meant of god in reference to moses,
Bec god made him god. That god he made cannot be false.
MADE A HOUSE?
DOES IT MEAN THE HOUSE IS NOT TRUE HOUSE?
Is affixing the term house to a stone makes it a house? It cannot be likewise affixing the term god to moses cannot make him a god, but as we can see, it was not merely affixing the term god to moses but in actuality, god made moses a god thus moses was not a called-god-only or a god by name only bec god made him god and bec he was made a god, then he is a real god bec it cannot be that god is making false gods bec god is against false oaths, as it say,
And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.
1 Kings 17:24
And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.
He cannot make false oath such as making moses a god which if not intended as a real god is therefore a false oath which god said is an abomination, therefore he could have only meant as a particular truthful oath to make moses a real god, bec god’s words is truth, thus moses as god, is a testimony of Truth, that moses is god–a real god as no context speaks of anything about god making false gods thus logically, as the only rational option, moses was a real god. It follows that in like manner righteous men who god called as gods therefore are real gods.
THERE ARE NO PROOF TO DISQUALIFY THEM AS TRUE GODS THEREFORE TRUE GOD LOGICALLY SPEAKS OF TWO KINDS,
- GOD AS DIVINE NATURE
- GOD AS STATE OF BEING OF RIGHTEOUS MEN
Why I come to this conclusion?
Bec moses is a real god as well as god almighty bec he was made a real god thus logically, God, whenever referred to in the bible, speaks of two kinds of true god–the divine true god and the true gods referring to righteous men. The worshipped and the not worshipped. Both in each aspect and category, true gods.
