Who can raise the dead, but God?

But men including Jesus raised the dead.
Often Jesus’ extraordinary miracles is seen as sign of his divinity by trinitarians.

Response:
Jesus himself said:
Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

According to Jesus, any other human who believes can not only do the miracles he did, but he can do even greater miracles. So Jesus does not encourage the Trinitarian’s argument for his divinity based on his miracles.

In fact, according to Peter, Jesus miracles showed him that Jesus was a MAN who was attested by God (YaHWeh) and not that Jesus was deity:

Act 2:22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know
Act 2:23 this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men.
Act 2:24 God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

When Jesus performed the miracles, he gave the glory to his Father, but when trinitarians explain the miracles they take away glory from the Father

Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, (John 10:25 ESV)

John 5:36 ” But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.”

None of the prophets or Jesus boasted or self glorified themselves – For they all gave glory to God. Once Moses struck the rock twice and his words fell, so God does not allow him to enter the promised land.

So according to Jesus the miracles he did proved that the Father was with him. When Jesus or any human does these miracles it proves that God is with that person. The miracles proved that God had send Jesus, not that Jesus was God. If the miracles of Jesus proves Jesus’ deity, then Moses should also be deity. Can a man split the Red Sea or kill the first born of Egypt? God did those miracles through Moses.

Jesus, Elijah and Elisha did the miracles they did by the anointing of the holy spirit.

Jesus gives the glory to the Father, but can trinitarians do likewise?
Can you trust Jesus’ words?
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself.” (John 5:19)
“I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me; I speak these things and he that sent me is with me, the Father hath not left me alone, for I do always those things that please him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself.”
(John 8:28-29; 5:19)

Jesus does not know the date of his return

Image may contain: 1 person, text

 

Jesus does not know the day of his return because it has not been revealed to him.
When we consider the opening passage of Revelation:
“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him,”

I.e. Jesus gets his revelation from ➡️his God.

Jesus confessed:
Joh 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge.

Jesus is exalted, in that the Father has given him glory and revelation above all else;
yet some things are hid even from the exalted Christ.

Over the past 2000 years, every generation has felt Jesus would come in their life time, based on present day events. While this gives us hope, the hope of healing of this world and eternal life, it is unwise to speculate, even what Jesus himself does not know.

History has shown us the worst of days, times of war and times of peace, times of famine, earthquake and plagues, but the Father has his own plans and patience.

We cannot help but be curious of his return – as even his disciples asked him – at the time of his ascension:
“Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6)

To which Jesus advised his dear ones:
“It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.”

Even in the resurrected state Jesus repeated what he said during his days of mortality.
His emphasis is that the Father has fixed that mysterious date by his own authority and no one knows it.

However, he encouraged them about the spirit they were to receive:
Act 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Jesus sings to his God

Have you ever thought if Jesus was a Tenor, Baritone, Countertenor, Bass? The scriptures testify he used his vocal chords to make melody to his God!

Jesus sings to his God
Jesus prays to his God
Jesus fasts to his God
Jesus trusts his God
Jesus loves his God
Jesus glorifies his God

Jesus was never part of a trinity!

1 Corinthians 11.3

Image may contain: text

The Head of Christ is God the Father is obvious form scriptures because Jesus worships God his Father. Jesus worships, glorifies, honours YHWH as his God and Father. Jesus prays and sings to YHWH his God and Father.

Trinity incorrectly teaches that the Father and son are co-equal thereby insulting the God, Jesus came to preach. Trinity will teach you to resist the Father, therefore you will neither understand the son nor the Father.

Yahweh “raised” the prophet Jesus

Image may contain: text

Yahweh “raised” the prophet Jesus to declare his will. Jesus was ‘raised’ up or directed to come into existence or specially chosen and authorised according to YHWH’s purpose and plan. Jesus was to be an Israelite and Jew yet supersede Moses.

This prophecy was fulfilled thus as interpreted by the disciple Peter:
– ‘RAISED UP HIS SERVANT’:

Act 3:22 Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me; to him shall ye hearken in all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you.
Act 3:23 And it shall be, that every soul, which shall not hearken to that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.
Act 3:24 Yea and all the prophets from Samuel and them that followed after, as many as have spoken, they also told of these days.
Act 3:25 Ye are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having [RAISED UP HIS SERVANT], sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.

Zecharias’ Prophecy:
Luk 1:69 And hath [RAISED UP A HORN] of salvation for us In the house of his servant David
Luk 1:70 (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets which have been since the world began),

Paul and Barnabas at Antioch in Pisidia testify from the raising of David to Jesus. Note the usage of ‘RAISED UP’ i.e. to bring into existence or to cause an action according to his will or chosen by God or authorised by God:

Act 13:21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.
Act 13:22 And when he had removed him, he [RAISED UP] unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
Act 13:23 Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise [RAISED] unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus.
