Jesus Not God In The Days Of His Flesh

From Pastor Vitale:
I thought you all would be interested in the following Scripture concerning the above:
1 Kings 8:27-29
27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded ?
28 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:
29 That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.
It appears that Solomon, the wisest man in the world (before Jesus) never expected the God of Israel to actually inhabit the temple he built. He just asked that the Lord should hear the prayers that came forth from it.
It is spiritually illegal to give God a form of any kind, breathing or not breathing. This is why the Jews call the worship of Jesus idolatry.
On the other hand, it appears that neither the Jews nor the Christians recognize that Jesus’ status changed with His ascension out of the body of Jesus of Nazareth.
Now, the personality or soul, of Jesus is one with His Father and with God. There is no separation.
The soul known as Jesus ascended to the 5th level of soul called “oneness” (Yechida in Hebrew).
Jesus is now an aspect of God that is revealed to humanity, like Jehovah Elohim, or any of the Names of God.
The Name of Jesus is higher than all of the other Names, including “I Am.” (I Am, Jah, Jehovah, El, Elohim, YHVH, Tzev’aot, El Chai, Shaddai, Adonay (descending order))
Remember, it is much better for us for this revelation to be true, because in that event, there is hope for our restoration to the right hand of God.
God bless you for asking questions about this exciting revelation. May the Lord quicken it to you if it is indeed His Truth.
Love, Pastor Vitale.
