Soul Food: The Son of God, Part II

Ray ChapellBy Ray Chapell, Farmington Presbyterian Manor chaplain

This month, we will finish this aspect of the Son of God. When we are finished, we will have a complete study. I also hope that you have been looking at each scripture reference, so that you will have a better understanding of the teaching.

The preexistence eternity of the Son of God are implied in the fact that He has the attributes of God – life (John 1:4), self-existence (John 5:26), immutability (Heb. 13:8), truth (John 14:6), love (John 3:16), holiness (Heb. 7:26), eternity (Col. 1:17; Heb. 1:11), omnipresence (Matt. 28:20), omniscience (1 Cor. 4:5; Col. 2:3), and omnipotence (Matt. 28:18; Rev. 1:8). 5.

In like manner, the preexistence and eternity of Christ are implied in the fact the He is worshiped as God (John 20:28; Acts 7:59-60; Heb. 1:6).

It follows that since the Lord Jesus Christ is God, He is from everlasting to everlasting. The theme of the deity and eternity of the Son of God should be closely connected with the humanity of Christthrough the incarnation, which will be the subject of our next study. Until then, may the Lord richly bless you.
