~ Jesus Christ Belongs to God ~
“When He [Jesus Christ] had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice [of God the Father] came from heaven, saying, ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’” (Matthew 3:16-17). (Side note: notice the Trinity in this passage.)
“For to which of the angels did He [God the Father] ever say: ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You’? And again: ‘I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son’? But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: ‘Let all the angels of God worship Him’” (Hebrews 1:5-6).
“I will declare the decree: the Lord [God the Father] has said to Me [Jesus Christ], 'You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel’” (Psalm 2:7-9).
