What does son of God mean?

father and son

The term son of God is a very confusing term. Most interpret it literally like the son of a man which means that such person was born through birth.

This term carries quite a different meaning biblically. This is why it’s very important to properly understand the term so that we might fully understand how the term relates to us.

It’s written that there were many sons of God, yet the first biblically recorded son of God is a man, the man Adam. Adam is the first son of God named in the Bible, this is a according to the genealogy of Jesus (Luke 3:38).

Apart from Adam, there’re also records of other sons of God well distributed through the Bible. It’s beyond human comprehension to know how many sons of God there might be, but we know that Adam was the only man who was a son of God.

None of these sons of God were begotten by God, yet they were sons of God. This gives us the understanding that being a son of God transcends birth as with humans. The son of God represents something beyond birth.

The first time the Bible records the son of God by birth (conception) was with the birth of Jesus. For this reason, Jesus is said to be the only son begotten of God. From this statement we can find both the words ‘begotten’ and ‘son’. This means Jesus is a son of God but a son by birth.

Therefore, unlike Adam and the rest sons of God, Jesus is the only conceived son of God. The others sons of God were sons without birth.

What then is the meaning of the ‘son of God’?

The term son of God means: a body (form) through which God can be seen. God is unseen and can cannot be seen, but we can see God in certain bodies. Adam was the first biblically recorded body that God was seen and he was practically as God to everything that was made until his fall from the presence.

After Adam, man lost that son nature as God was never seen in man anymore. Man became unlike God and alienated himself from God. So God birthed a son in his own image, a son that is going to be like him even though he was just a man.

That man is Jesus. Therefore, unlike Adam, man who was a son of God but without birth, Jesus is also man and a son of God but this time, man was a son of God by birth.

So Jesus is the true son of God because he’s a son by birth, having in him the pure essence of God. This essence is called the Holy Spirit of God. So the true identity of God is only truly seen in his only true son.

Who is the ‘son of God’ today?

Today we don’t see God, neither do we see Jesus, but we see Jesus in a believer. Today, You & I have been made sons of God because God is seen in us. The best part of being a believer is that we’re not just ordinary sons of God, we’re sons of God by birth just like Jesus. We’re begotten in Christ by the same spirit that begot Jesus on earth.

Therefore, as believers, we must be conscious of their place in God. Knowing fully well that God can only be truly seen in us. This is why we also must learn of Jesus through diligent study of the scriptures so that we know how to walk like Jesus and show God well enough as he wants to be seen. God bless you as you walk in the way God wants….

Is God a better explanation than evolution?

Not at all. Evolution is a mechanism. God is a cause. Evolution doesn’t cause evolution anymore than momentum causes momentum. Now, don’t be impulsive…

Physics jokes aside, imagine the progress of computers from the ‘perspective’ of a computer. All one would ‘see’ would be increasing complexity, according to precedents set by previous generations.

Now, from a computer’s ‘point of view’ humans are metaphysical – a computer cannot conceive of a human in any way that is identical to a human themselves. People just can’t be encoded in Perl. Not even in Python.

However, circuits can be modeled. Computers can analyse the operations of computers. Common ancestry creates common understanding, in a sense.

Regardless of modern progress with respect to gender identity, all bots are binary. They must be. For now. Even with Syracuse’s quantum supremacy, it’s hard to say what that will actually mean…probably multiple things at once. In the end, do or do not – there is no try. Yoda kind of nailed the fact that Qbits must collapse…

In summary, God is an axiom whereas evolution is an observation. One does not explain the other – no more than the turbulence of the wind explains its origin.

What does justice tempered with mercy mean?

The phrase ‘justice tempered with mercy’ conventionally means to soften or whittle down justice after considering the offender. The act of softening justice has been one of the problems of the society, and its one of the unreasonable practices that have survived numerous generations and times.

Life is system of balance; two sides combining to form one. Reducing a part destroys the balance of life. For example, we perceive light and darkness at different times yet an objective observation shows that both times are lightened; light shines in both the day/light and the night/darkness. Therefore, both the darkness and the light give light for continuity of life. Reducing any part will create total darkness which is tantamount to destroying life instantaneously.

The man and the woman are different yet the man and the woman are one; the positive and negative charges are different yet the negative charge is just a positive charge in another compartment or environment.

The fundamental laws in nature support the fact that life is a balance. Every action must be balanced by an equal and opposite reaction. Every cause is balanced by an effect of equal magnitude. Justice balances offense, therefore equal magnitude of justice must be served for offense to sustain the balance of life. There’s no justice without an offense, and an offense without equal magnitude of justice unbalances life.

Softening or whittling down justice is not a realistic practice yet humans have continued to soften justice based on their connection to and perception of an offender. Softening justice encourages offenses, justice should never be softened by any means irrespective of the offender.                                        

What really happens when things are tempered? Tempering objects strengthens such objects, it increases the internal strength of the materials to withstand conditions that might destroy such materials. Glass, steel and bricks are examples of materials usually tempered to increase strength.

The Bible gives a good illustration of what tempering does to materials during the construction of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:3). The people knew the implications of building such an edifice with bricks and the impact of environmental conditions at such heights so they tempered the bricks to withstand the effects of harsh conditions and also to strengthen it enough to carry the weight of the building.

Since tempering does not soften a thing but instead strengthens such it, therefore tempering justice can only strengthen it. Justice is strengthened with mercy. In fact the idea of tempering justice with mercy to soften it is both unrealistic and un-objective..

What does the Bible say about tempering justice with mercy? Most people have misconstrued what the Bible says about tempered justice just as they misconstrue most part of the book. They have logically interpreted the purpose of God’s mercy to mean softening justice but the objective evidence of tempering shows that mercy does not soften justice.

What does mercy do to justice? Justice is weak, it does not fully cancel out offenses. Mercy strengthens justice so it can cancel out offense. Justice alone still leaves the offense lingering but mercy tempers justice so that it can completely cancel out offense.

For example: hanging a murderer does not bring back the victim to life, it doesn’t even quench the hurt of the loved ones of the victim. This is justice yet it doesn’t repair the damage done. In fact, justice causes further offense as it hurts the family of the hanged murderer too. So what then is the purpose of justice if it cannot fully balance offense?

Tempering justice with mercy does not soften justice, instead it strengthens justice to enable it to balance offense. While it’s a common practice for humans to try to soften justice, God never soften justice. The mercy of God strengthens or solidifies justice.

God cannot go against his Word; all shall reap what they sow. This is in accordance of the balance of life. A person that takes an action gets the same action in the reverse (as a reaction). Whoever sows a particular cause gets it back in effect. It’s impossible for God to cut the balance of life with mercy, instead God strengthens this balance by solidly establishing it.

What does mercy of God do to a person? While it’s common for humans to reduce justice with mercy, the mercy of God does not reduce justice on a person. The mercy of God strengthens a person so that they can pass through justice without being consumed or destroyed by it. The mercy of God strengthens a person from the inside so that they can go through justice which is stronger than what humans call justice. Those who reject the mercy of God are not strengthened, they’re weak, they shall be consumed and destroyed by the justice of God.

How do i prove that God is or Isn’t real

Asking for proof of God’s existence is one of the most important questions in an unbeliever’s mouth. They are quick to ask a believer to prove that God really exists. Although only those who believe in science seem to peddle this question but the answer is relevant to all. Everyone, even a believer must prove that God does or doesn’t exist to them (2 Corinthians 13:5).

How do you prove that a thing exists in the way it appears? Do you just state it exists or doesn’t exist based on your perception of that thing? Or do you put that thing to test to confirm it exists In the way it appears?

A lot of people misrepresent what and who God is because they simply tell of his existence or inexistence from their perception without any proofs whatsoever. They judge God without proving if he exists or doesn’t exists in the way they perceive. They hold a belief which may or may not be the true nature of God and go around stating such belief vehemently without knowledge.

Unbelievers are fond of this behavior but most people who claim to be believers do this too. An unbeliever vehemently states that God does not exist from a place of total ignorance, while most who claim to be believers state that God exists from a place of twisted knowledge of his person. Both kinds of people are the same because they cannot prove that God exists or doesn’t exist. They can only make a claim and hold onto such claim as a belief.

How does a person prove he’s stupid? Can a person intentionally prove he’s stupid? No, they can’t, people will “realize” how stupid a person is when he speaks or acts. In fact a person who can intentionally prove he’s stupid is very intelligent.

How do you prove that you’re intelligent? Can you intentionally prove It? No, you can’t, people will “realize” your level of intelligence when you speak or act. Anyone who proves he’s Intelligent is a very stupid person.

How do you prove that you’re wise? People will “realize” your level of wisdom In your actions and in the words you speak. Those who claim or intentionally try to prove they’re wise are usually very foolish.

How do you prove you know something? Do you just say you know that thing? No, you don’t. You speak about that thing or put that thing to practice in a way that reveals you know what you say.

It’s important for everyone to know that a thing can be subjectively and objectively real but only the objective reality is the truth. Anything can be true to a person but the objectivity of that thing determines whether or not that thing is actually true. The reality Is only revealed to a person when their subjective reality aligns (in oneness) with the objective reality. Until a person achieves this oneness, whatever they say or do is a lie.

Humans are a highly subjective Being. People judge what is real with respect to themselves and they’ll continually claim this is the truth unless they’re helped to realize the truth. For example, an ignorant person will claim every other person is ignorant except himself, a deluded person will say the same to every other person except himself and another deluded person like himself.

For this reason, human judgement, which is usually perception based cannot be said to be the truth. There are problems because people claim their perception is the truth and they enforce this on others.

How does one prove that God is real? A person can only prove that God is real from his Truth, his objectivity. God Is true, and Christ is the truth of God. This means Christ is the evidence of God. Christ is also the Word of God which means the spoken word is the evidence of God. In fact the Bible shows us that God is the God of his Word. This means only the word can tell whether God is or isn’t real. A person who wants to prove that God is or isn’t real must not just state it from their perception, they must first understand the spoken (in this times written) word and prove it. Anyone who does not put the word to test but claims that God exists or doesn’t exist is a liar.

God is only proven in his Word, by putting the word to practice and being able to talk about God from a place of accurate knowledge. Anything short of that is a lie. No one can tell whether God is or isn’t real without evidence of what they’re saying. The truth is objective, therefore the Word of God which is his truth is objective. God is only “realized” in putting his truth to practice.
