God created the heavens and the earth.
God set in motion His plan for redemption, which He had conceived even before He created the heavens and the earth.
That plan involved many elements but revolved around the calling of a man named Abram (later renamed Abraham) and the formation of his descendants into a nation whose national records would include the Scriptures (what we have come to call the Bible).
Unbeknownst to anyone, God left His throne that He might be implanted in the womb of a virgin named Mary as an embryonic human being. He was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth. He had a ministry in Israel that lasted approximately three years. As Jesus of Nazareth, He relied not upon His status as God but rather upon the Scriptures which had made many wonderful promises to the descendants of Abraham, and especially to a particular descendant who would come through the line of Isaac, Jacob, Judah, and David. Through the Scriptures Jesus of Nazareth learned many things, including the fact that He was Israel’s Messiah which meant that He was the recipient of all of those promises. Said promises included the narrative arc that He would be rejected by His own people, killed, and then raised from the dead three days later.
After being raised from the dead, Jesus was taken up into heaven and seated at the right hand of God. In the great coming of the kingdom of God, His true identity was revealed: He was the God who had created heaven and earth.
This transformation of God was a work so great that the prophets said it would not be believed by some even when described (Acts 13:41; Habakkuk 1:5). And indeed today there are many even in the so-called church of God who do not believe it. The foolish doctrine of the trinity was concocted after all the apostles had passed away precisely because those who concocted it did not realize that Jesus has fulfilled His promise to come again.
Don’t be one of those who refuse to believe in the transformation of God. Be one of those who because he believes in the transformation of God, also comes to see the transformation of himself.
