The BAPTISM OF JESUS CHRIST AS RECOUNTED BY MATTHEW, the Gospel Writer:
Matthew 3:16-17…”16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
This Biblical account of the water baptism of JESUS CHRIST, GOD THE SON Incarnate, Perfect Manhood/Humanity, was written by the Apostle Matthew for JESUS CHRIST for our information, knowledge and understanding.
This event clearly reveals to us, according to JESUS CHRIST, the Almighty Lord GOD THE SON, that there is a DISTINCT GOD THE FATHER who always/infinitely loves and is infinitely/endlessly pleased with His ONLY Begotten SON [monogenes huios – the SON who has or in the same essence as the FATHER]. This further affirms the sayings/words. revelations of GOD THE SON incarnate, JESUS the CHRIST, that it is only GOD THE SON who could reveal, explain, declare, make known to the world WHO GOD THE FATHER really is. This could be shown by the following Biblical passages, to wit”
John 1:18…”18 No man hath seen God at any time, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON [GOD, NU], WHICH IS IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER, HE HATH DECLARED HIM [the Father].”
Matthew 11:27…”All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; NEITHER KNOWETH ANY MAN THE FATHER, SAVE THE SON, AND HE TO WHOMSOEVER THE SON WILL REVEAL HIM.”
John 17:25…”O righteous Father, THE WORLD HATH NOT KNOWN THEE: BUT I HAVE KNOWN THEE, and these have known that thou hast sent me.”
This account by Matthew also reveals and makes known to the world that it is ONLY GOD THE SON Incarnate, JESUS CHRIST, who could reveal WHO GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS, ANOTHER DISTINCT DIVINE PERSON, and what are HIS works-functions in relation to God the SON. Thus, because JESUS is the ANOINTED SON of GOD THE FATHER before the world began according the eternal covenant or agreement between GOD the FATHER and GOD the SON (Heb. 13:20; 2 Tim. 1:8-10; Eph. 1:3-23; 3:9-11; etc.) as witnessed by GOD the HOLY SPIRIT (Heb. 1:2-3,8-9; 9;!4; Jn. 3:34-35; Zech. 4:6).
The BAPTISM of JESUS clearly reveals the existence of a TRI-PERSONAL GOD/ ELOHIM in the infinitely kinship-relationship of the FATHER and the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT in the ONE KIND or ESSENCE of BEING that is the GODKIND. The distinction, uniqueness and non-interchangeability of the Father with anyone of the other two (2) Members-Persons and vice versa are clearly demonstrated and explained not only by Matthew 3:16-17; 17:1-5; John 14:26, 16-17,21,24,26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Gen. 1:26; 3:22; 11:7-9; Rev. 1:1-2; 2 Cor. 13:14; Heb. 9:14; 10:29; etc.).
Furthermore, this revelation of JESUS the CHRIST through Apostle Matthew demonstrates that GOD THE SON is the ONLY Mediator between the GODKIND [Godkind FATHER and SON and HOLY SPIRIT] and the createdkinds (1 Tim. 2:5; Jn. 3:34-35; 14:6,9-11, 13-14,26; 1 Cor. 8:6; Rev. 1:1-2,8,11,17-18; 22:12-13; Rom. 11:36; Heb. 1:2-12; 7:15-25; etc.). It is GOD THE SON Alone who can make known THE MYSTERY OF THE TRI-PERSONAL LORD GOD to anyone as HE WILLS it.
To teach and/or claim that GOD THE FATHER is also the SON, JESUS the exclusive ANOINTED ONE [Messiah/Christ] of GOD THE FATHER and also GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT is a deliberate lie of the devil and is satanic and therefore, this is committing the unpardonable sin (1 Jn. 5:16) which is blasphemy against GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT as revealed by GOD THE SON, JESUS CHRIST, in His testimony to Matthew in Matthew 12:31-32.
We, as Christ Jesus’ redeemed, His called-out ones (1 Pet. 2:5-9), sanctified vessels (1 Cor. 1:2; 6:11; 2 Tim. 2:19-22), could only entrust, commend, course through, channel our all of all in all of reality directly, exclusively, permanently and completely to JESUS CHRIST, the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD THE SON Incarnate, Perfect Manhood and the all-appropriating ALL in all even in HIS incarnation and Perfect Manhood.
