Jesus himself asked God for help. Does God ask God for help? If Jesus Is God, Why Does He Pray in the Gospels?
As I said before, God is ONE but God has three personalities - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. And all these three personalities have different functions to perform but they are the same one God just as we have Soul, Mind and Body - three different components but together making one person. Father gives Instruction. Son carries out the instructions. Holy Spirit conveys the message. So this amounts to reciprocal dealings between Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. It is very similar to our body communicating to mind and mind giving instruction to body.
Let me give you one more example: -
The moment you touch a very hot thing with your finger even without your knowledge you pull your hands back. You never know what is going on inside your body. But signal was given from your fingers that, "it is very hot". The signal reaches the brain through nervous system intimating that fingers have touched a very hot thing. Now brain thinks a little bit and gives signal back to finger, "Pull your hands back." This message is carried by nervous system to your finger, and you pulled your hand off. If brain is not working properly then the signal can not be interpreted correctly or if nervous system is defective signal can not be carried through free from error Think for a moment about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. God gives instructions, Son obeys and Holy Spirit transmits messages both ways. So three of them work individually and as a unit and at the same time they are one God.
So God is not asking help from God Himself but Gods three personalities have different functions to perform and they work in their own field of activity. We read in the scripture (John 1:1), "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
Jesus is called the "Word" (Logos, Gk.). The idea of the Logos belonged to Greek philosophy in John's day, but John uses the word in a larger sense that would include Hebrew ideas also. Basically, the word in our text has reference to a unique communication of God to man, which He accomplished in human flesh.
John 1:14, "And the Word became 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."
Bible clearly says that "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
It shows the complex nature of God, though they are different personalities but the same God. Jesus made it clearer when He said that He and Father are one. John 14:10-11, "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves."
Jesus prayed to the Father means He did talk to the Father. He got instructions from the Father and He obeyed it.
If Jesus is God then why He needed to comedown to this world and give His life? He could have done it sitting on His throne.
Yes, it is true that He could have done this sitting on His throne but It was LOVE that brought Him down. He could not see us going into hell fire. He could not see us perishing in our sins. Think about this for a moment, imagine yourself to be sitting on a chair and reading newspaper. Your son is playing nearby but somehow, he fell down in fire. You are hearing his scream for help. Do you think that you can sit quietly and say, "son try to come out of the fire by yourself. Work hard, work hard!!" No, I am sure, you will jump from your seat and even risking the danger of getting yourself burnt you will try to save your child and will try to rescue him as soon as possible from the burning fire. Jesus did the same thing on the cruel cross. When He saw that we are incapable of coming out of our sins by ourselves He came down in the form of a man and died on our behalf so that we may never face hellfire but could live with Him in peace and joy.
"Jesus himself worshipped One God. Does God worship God?"
Jesus never worshipped any God but people, demon, devil, angels and heavenly hosts worshipped Jesus. And yes, He is the only God who is worthy of worship and honor and glory and praise.
If Jesus is God then, When Jesus was crucified, it means, God died! God sent His Son in this World.." When His son came to the world where was God?
Is God just like man? Can He be only in one place at a time? When God came down in the form of a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire, where was God at that time, can you imagine?
"And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night." (Exodus 13:21)
Where was God when He came down and walked with Abraham? Where was God when He came down and walked with Enoch? Where was God when He came down and led the Israelites in the wilderness? Where was God when He was with all His prophets of Old Testament and New Testament? Do you think that God was with only one person and heaven was empty at that time? If you read the whole Bible you can see that God was with all His prophets and with all His children... It is Gods quality that He can be in many places at the same time. God is almighty and all knowing.
We read in scripture John 1:47-48 : -
"Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!"
"Nathanael said to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
We see that Jesus did not only know about Nathanael before He met him but He also saw him before he came to Jesus. So God can be in two or more different places at the same time.
Jesus ate, slept, drank and went to the bathroom just like other human beings. Clearly, he is a human being - a great one - a messenger of God and a prophet, but no more than that.
Yes, it is true that Jesus was 100% human when He was in this world but at the same time He was 100% God. God of Old Testament became man to save us from our sin and from hell fire. When we read His qualities, we can see that He had 100% human nature but at the same time He had 100% Gods nature in Him. For example: - God is Holy Jesus was Holy, there was no sin in Him God has power over everything Jesus had power over everything and still has. Etc.
didn't Christ know when the Day of Judgment is, if he is the Creator?
