WHO IS GREATER THAN JESUS?
1 CORINTHIANS 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith ALL THINGS ARE PUT UNDER HIM, it is manifest that HE IS EXCEPTED which did put all things under him.What does this mean? That there is someone who is OVER Jesus? A greater God or another PERSON separate from Jesus?
REVELATION 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY
MATTHEW 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ALL POWER is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
PHILIPPIANS 2:10 That at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
JOHN 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.
Jesus clearly claimed the SAME attributes and authority of God Almighty, the I AM, the Alpha and Omega, the one that EVERY KNEE would confess to at the judgment. The reason is extremely clear in scripture;
1 TIMOTHY 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH,
JOHN 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus told the woman at Jacob's well that GOD IS A SPIRIT. The SAME Spirit of God that spoke the world into existence BECAME FLESH and dwelt among us.
HEBREWS 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same;
God who IS A SPIRIT took part of flesh and blood.
ROMANS 8:3 God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
The Holy Ghost overshadowed Mary and created the flesh body we call JESUS and filled it with HIMSELF; the SPIRIT OF GOD.
COLOSSIANS 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Jesus was NOT 100% MAN with sinful temptations and 100% God WITHOUT sinful temptations. He was 100% flesh but that flesh was Holy according to
LUKE 1:35 .........therefore also that HOLY thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Holy means He could NOT be tempted with evil. The devil tried to tempt Him to disobey Himself unsuccessfully because He is GOD IN THE FLESH.
HEBREWS 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON,
Therefore; the answer to the question of why Paul tells the Corinthians that he is excepted which did put ALL things under Him is because The Holy Spirit who IS GOD is who filled every part of the flesh body of Jesus. The flesh body of Jesus could not LIVE without the SPIRIT OF GOD just a ANY body is dead without the spirit. But the Spirit of JESUS IS COMPLETELY GOD. That is HIS IDENTITY as He makes clear when speaking of Himself in Scripture that HE IS GOD THE FATHER and that His Spirit is the COMFORTER. Just as Isaiah prophesied:
ISAIAH 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
