Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Scripture explanation (monotheistic)!

Jesus Christ our Lord and God; [part 1]

He created all things, by Himself, through Himself and for Himself.
Every domain, power, principality and nothing came into being apart from Him. (Col. 1:16)
Jesus Christ does NOT give his glory to another person who is a so called god, (Isa. 42:8) but all the glory must be to the Lord Jesus Christ! (2 Peter 3:18)

The fundamental principle of understanding the Scripture is that all Scripture concerning God must be understood and explained in the one person Christ Jesus our Lord and God.
Whoever transgresses that principle does not understand the Scripture and most likely does not know the true God!

All Scripture-passages where Jesus is praying to God, or talking to God and glorifying God must be understood in the light that the Lord God the Almighty Jesus Christ the Spirit became a MAN who fulfilled the duty and requirements in the office of the last HIGH PRIEST according to the law and the perfect spiritual MAN before God and to be an example for us!

God came in the flesh as the last high Priest in the old covenant with His own blood-sacrifice for sins and to establish a new covenant in a new order the order of Melchizedek to be a Priest for ever. (Hebr.7+8)
Jesus is the perfect spiritual man, to be our spiritual Father, teacher and brother, also as an example for us how to live a Holy Spirit filled life just as Jesus did, so that we would be called the Sons of God! (1 John 3:1)

Q: = Question. A: = Answers.

(John chapter 17)
Q: If Jesus is the Lord God, why did He pray? And to whom did He pray?

A: John 17 is called the High Priestly prayer; 1-5Jesus prays for Himself; 6-19 Jesus prays for His Disciples; 20-26 Jesus prays for all believers.
It was the duty of the high priest in office to pray for himself and for the people and to bring a blood sacrifice for sins to God.
Since Jesus is the Lord God in the office of the high priest He had to pray to God that is Himself, because there is no greater one to be found, He had to pray to Himself just like in (Jer. 22:5) where He swore by Himself.

Q: Why did Jesus address God as Father, if Jesus is the Father? Was Jesus talking to another person when He said ‘Father’?

A: Like every man or son has a Father, so Jesus as the perfect man and as the high priest had to address God as His Father, which is Himself.
So the Father is the Spirit within Jesus, and Jesus is the Son of His Spirit (the Holy Spirit) (Luke 1:35), or simply ‘God became a man’. (Always one person ‘Jesus Christ’! whether in the flesh or in Spirit)!
For this reason Jesus said; “Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me”?
In other words; don’t you believe that I am in the Spirit and the Spirit is in me?
God is Spirit and soul in one vehicle, the body of Jesus Christ! (John 4:24 and Isa. 1:14)
You have been created in His likeness, spirit soul and body. (Heb. 4:12)

If you are born again, or born of the Holy Spirit, then Jesus in the Spirit would have made His abode in you (John 14:23) and your body would be the Temple of the Holy Spirit, or the Temple of God.
The body is the vehicle of the spirit.
The body of Jesus is the vehicle of the Holy Spirit, where the Father is in the Son and the Son is in the Father (John 14:10), one complete GOD-MAN ‘Jesus Christ our Lord!
Not so that God is a man!
Rather; God became a man in Christ Jesus our Lord!
