Here is the text of a conversation I had in a chat room. I am JP_Magnus.
<JP_Magnus> Can I ask someone a question?
<JP_Magnus> In Matthew chapter 4 verse 10 Jesus says “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve”. Does this mean that The Lord is God? I mean, is the term Lord the same as saying God?
Also, in Matthew 1:20 it says “the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream,” So is the angel of the Lord, the angel of God?
in the Bible they use Lord in referring to God. the Angel of the Lord is Jesus
<JP_Magnus> Jesus is an angel?
no… angel meaning messenger. Jesus is God the father’s messenger. God’s word. Lord menas master and teacher. so God is Lord of our lives
<JP_Magnus> In Luke 1:32 the angel is speaking to Mary and says He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:. Again it uses the term Lord God. So when it says Lord God, is it talking about God?
<JP_Magnus> I guess the question is, is God our Lord?
<JP_Magnus> Okay. Thank you. The Bible seems to be saying that too, and I know we can trust the Bible, it is God’s word.
Here is another question. In Luke chapter 1, after Mary is told she will give birth to Jesus, she goes to visit her cousin Elizabeth. When she gets there, Elizabeth greets her and says (verse 42) “And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” Elizabeth calls Mary, “the mother of my Lord…” Since Lord is used to mean God in other verses, does this mean that Elizabeth was calling Mary “the mother of my God.” ?
she was the earthly mother of the Lord when he came in the flesh
Lord does not mean God. u can call god Lord though
<JP_Magnus> Oh. So when Elizabeth says, Lord, who does she mean?
<JP_Magnus> So, in other places in the New Testament, Lord is the same as God, but when Elizabeth used it, it only meant Master or Teacher? But isn’t Jesus God?
most often its Christ that is reffered as Lord
Jesus is son of God or God in Flesh
Sarah called her husband Lord. in the context of the word master she meant her earthly master as a wife obeys her husband
Lord is anyone who have lordship over you
<JP_Magnus> So, are you saying that Elizabeth was calling Mary, “the mother of my master?”
we refer to Jesus as master in our lives as Lord
dont just argue for argueing «JP_Magnus» u wont get anywhere with it
<JP_Magnus> I’m not. I am just curious.
I told you Elizabeth was reffering to Christ
<JP_Magnus> But Jesus is God, isn’t he?
yes what is important to remember is that you make God the Lord of your life
Jesus is son of God or God in Flesh. the Father Son and the Holy Sprit are 3 in one different personalities
but one God
<JP_Magnus> So, just to get this straight, Jesus is God, and Lord is sometimes used to mean God, but when Elizabeth calls Mary, “the Mother of my Lord” she doesn’t mean God, she means master? Is that correct?
Blessed> SHE MENT CHRIST is that clear
<JP_Magnus> Isnt’ Jesus the Christ?
Jesus means God with us. Christ means the saviour, the messiah
<JP_Magnus> Jesus is the Christ, and Jesus is God. So when Elizabeth called mary “the mother of my Lord” are you saying she meant, “the mother of Christ”?
Jesus is the Christ. Enough JP
in this instance yes
<JP_Magnus> And is the Christ God?
what do you think?
go read bible. its all well explained there
<JP_Magnus> Yes. I think the Christ is God.
ask the Spirit to explain it to your heart
Jesus, Christ Farther Lord all are God. each has different meanings. Father is God the Father, Jesus is the name given to Christ, Son of God
<JP_Magnus> I am just curious as to what Elizabeth meant when she called Mary “the mother of my Lord.”
Lord is who have lordship on you
<JP_Magnus> And who had Lordship on Elizabeth?
its can be abyone depending on the context
it was the Spirit dwelling in her child… John the baptist that revealed that to her
in that instance Elizabeth was reffering to Christ who is the saviour of man kind
pray that the same holy Spirit reveals this perfectly to you jp
