188.8.131.52 But he must be God, he was the heir of God's glory:
Some members of the Church will then tell us that Jesus was the "heir" of God and was "glorified by God" upon his death with the eternal glory and majesty of God. To try and prove this point they then quote such verses as:
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
They will tell us "surely you must see that this makes Jesus God, and thus, they must be joined in a trinity. You would have to be blind to not see this clear fact" What these clergymen do not bother to tell us is that the Bible also says:
"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together."
"By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."
"For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he (Jesus) is not ashamed to call them (the believers) brethren,"
