The Anointment of Jesus

You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows. (Heb 1:9)

Out of verse 9, it is found that God the Father, God of Jesus, has anointed Jesus with the oil of gladness. If God calls Jesus GOD, He immediately announces that he is the God of Jesus. Jesus, therefore, Jesus is not equal in the divinity with the Father.

Heb 8:1 Now in the things which we are saying, the main point is this. We have such a high priest, who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 12:2 looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – The throne is the throne of God.

Finally, God the Father says: Your God has anointed you .. not your companions (or fellows, KJV In other words, Jesus had loved justice more than his companions did and hated injustice. If Jesus were the Almighty God, the Father could not have referred to the companions of Jesus. GOD HAS NO FELLOWS! Further: If Jesus was already a God, how could God (i.e. Jesus) have had God?

Would God have sent his angel to earth to redeem the people from the original sin brought about by Adam and Eve? Jesus was born as a man and a man rose from the dead to the heavens. There he is currently human, albeit in the spirit body, like all those in heaven. Will he come back as an angel or as a human being? The answer is clear; people will live on earth and the man Jesus Christ is their king. This is why I do not believe Jesus ever was an angel – if He at all was in all in heaven pre-existent with God before the dawn of time.
