Acts 2That God cannot be God and also be the Son is puny, human thinking. It limits God's infinite capacity. Likewise, saying that because physical man cannot detach his spirit from himself to be a separate entity, then neither can omnipotent God detach His Holy Spirit from Himself to be a separate entity is puny, human thinking. If God were not able to manifest Himself as God as well as the Son as well as the Holy Ghost as three separate entities in ONE BEING, then Jesus never would have mentioned the three separate entities of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Matt. 28:19. Man has limited possibilities, but with God, ALL THINGS are possible.
Remember, Jesus instructed His disciples that he who had seen Him had seen the Father, and that He and the Father were one. God sent Himself to earth in the form of the man Jesus, yet God was in heaven at the same time. Therefore, God, Jesus, and yes, the Holy Spirit, are one and the same, just different manifestations of the SAME entity.
Why Jesus was called God in Isaiah?
Isaiah 9 KJV
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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Not just The Might God, but Father also....
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.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
Lastly, even His Wonderful Name says it all....
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
God with us.
Try as you may.....

The original title of this thread remains the same: "You Ever Wonder Why???" Without editing the original message, I would like to append the first statement in your initial post to the title [which is]: "Why Jesus was called God in Isaiah?"
I think this title is what you had in mind for the discussion: "You Ever Wonder Why??? (Why Jesus was called God in Isaiah?)[/color]
Ken forgets that 12 physical men cannot be one physical apostle. Yet God, being spiritual and omnipotent, can be one and the same with Jesus, whether on earth or in heaven, and with the Holy Spirit as well. Ken keeps forgetting that with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Yes, that is very clear: All of the Apostles were really just ONE Apostle.
"And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was" (John 17:5).Acts 2
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Yes, God made the Word/Logos that was God in the beginning to be Jesus in the flesh. That is not under debate.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
Jesus is stating that as stated in John.....He was with God before the world began
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Not....they WERE one.....but they ARE one
On that last verse, tell Donnie about our 'Speak that which is written'. He doesn't want to take it literal. He believes that they were ONE in heart. Kind of like Obama when he doesn't believe that homosexuality is really a sin because that it might not be literal.
God cannot lie.
