Abstract

The gospel does not introduce a new Lord. There is no other Lord in Christianity, except Christ. God in the Old Testament is the same as God in the New Testament. Christ is the same as God. There is no other Christ. God became man in Jesus Christ to preach the gospel to humans. He went to the earth of the dead to preached the gospel 3 days in the death world, returned to the earth, and then to the heaven. This is the spiritual journey. Emmanuel is God with us. The mathematical model of Christ is ~ ≤ X ≤ ~ and X = Y. A Christian could catch up into paradise as Paul’s vision. It was from the earth. It was not from heaven. It is different with Jesus Christ’s journey. Christ from heaven down to earth, going to the world of the dead, returning to earth and returning to heaven. Paul’s vision shows that the man catch up from the world to heaven, returned to the earth and died. He needs to wait the advent of Christ to rise up him from the death. Christ is eternal forever. The man is not yet 100% eternal. He still needs to be rise by Christ in the day of the Lord. Satan was from heaven and was thrown into the earth. It was not a spiritual journey. Satan, his angels and the false prophet have been thrown into the hell. The mathematical model of the false prophet is - ~ ≤ X < ~ and X = Y. The spiritual journey of Jesus Christ is Scholar.

1. Introduction 23
God is the supreme and eternal being who created and preserve all things. He is both 24 transcendent and immanent. Transcendent means wholly independent and beyond the material universe. 25 Immanent means to be involved in the world [1]. Christian teachings of the immanance and involvement 26 of God and his love for humanity exclude the belief that God is the same substance as the creator 27 universe. God’s divine Nature unites to human nature in the person of Jesus Christ; that is, the 28 incarnation [2]. Dead in man and return to heaven. It is a spiritual journey from the heaven to the globe 29 and the death, and then returned to the heaven through the world. 30 The gospel does not introduce a new Lord to replace God as the Lord. The early Christian 31 remained to obey to the Lord in the Old Testament. There is no replacement God with another God. 32 There is one Lord only; that is, Christ, God. 33 1 Cor. 10 : 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drink of that spiritual Rock that followed 34 them: and that Rock was Christ. 35 Heb. 11 24-26 36 24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; 37 25 Choosing rather to suffer affiction with the people of God, then to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a 38 reason; 39 26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the 40 recompence of the reward. 41

1 Cor. 10 : 4 and Heb. 11 : 26 show that Rock (God) was Christ and Moses obeyed Christ. It shows that 42 God, who led Israel from Egypt to Canaan, was Christ, too. Therefore, it can be stated that there is no 43 Lord except God, Christ. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am 44 (John 8 : 58). Do not be puzzled with this statement. 45 Abram was the first who knew regarding the advent of Jesus Christ on this globe. God notified 46 directly the advent of Christ to Abraham. God stated that Abraham seed bless all the nations of the earth. 47 Then, God notified to others such as Moses, David and Daniel regarding the advent of Christ. Jesus 48 Christ is the son of God and the son of Man. As the Son of man, he spent his life on the globe as 49 commonly humans. He went to the death, but as Christ quickened by the Spirit, God. Jesus Christ was 50 about 33 years on the globe. He preached the gospel around 3 years to humans. Jesus Christ went to the 51 dead world to preach the gospel around 3 days. He returned to the world 40 days and then returned to 52 the heaven. This is the spiritual journey to preach the gospel to all creatures. Jesus Christ’s disciples will 53 follow his journey from the world of the dead to heaven in the day of the Lord. These people will go the 54 heaven with Christian people that alive at that time. 55
2. God and the Lord 56
The Old Testament usually uses the name of God in singular such as Ex. 20 : 17 and Ps. 8 : 1. It 57 generally uses the terms in a very general sense rather than referring to any special designation of God. 58 The general name of God may include other special names. These names express his multifaceted 59 attributes [3]. 60 God was the creator of the heavens and the earth. Commonly, some names for God exist in the 61 Bible. These include the following: God, the Lord God, and the Lord. There are also other names such as 62 Almighty and the Spirit of God (Job 33 : 4), Almighty God (Gen. 17 : 1), God of Israel (Ex. 24 : 10). God is 63 the same as the Lord God and the Lord. There is no Lord except God, the Lord God. I am the Lord; and 64 there is none else (Isa. 45 : 18). There is only one God; that is, God, the Lord God, and the Lord (Table 1). 65 The names of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit correspond to the New Testament such as at the 66 end of the Gospel of Matthew (28 : 19). This verse states make disciples the entire nation, baptizing them 67 into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit [4]. It suggests that God includes the 68 Spirit, Christ and Son of Man. God is not the flesh. 69 God everlastingly arises from the Father and the Son. He joins the Father and the Son in 70 everlasting love. He is the Spirit [1]. God is the Spirit, Life, Truth, and Supreme Being. God is the source 71 of life. It is according to the first of Genesis that God created man, animal, plant, and others. The Spirit of 72 God could move upon the face of the waters (Gen. 1 : 2), be with man (Gen. 6 : 3 and I Sam. 16 : 14), for 73 example. He created and gave a living soul to man (Gen. 1 : 26 – 27, Gen 2 :7 and Job33 : 4). He is both 74 distance and close (Jer. 23 : 23-24). He could in the heaven and the hell (Ps. 139 : 8). God drives the 75 heavens and the hell. It shows that God is life and the source of live for all creatures. God could be 76 everything such as man, the burned bush, and angel. He is everywhere. Emmanuel, which being 77 interpreted is, God with us (Matt. 1 : 23). The Spirit itself beareth witness our spirit, that we are the 78 children of God (Rom. 8 : 16). Remember that the Spirit is separated with our spirit. There is God 79 everywhere. 80 As the Supreme Being, God can do everything. For example, God could be a flame of fire out the 81 midst of a bush as an angel (Ex. 3 : 2), and then as God (Ex. 3 : 4 - 7). It seems that God before speaking 82 with Moses sent his angel as the bush burned with fire but not consumed, and then God replaced the 83 angel. If God could be an angel, of course, he could also be a man, Jesus Christ. The Lord went before 84 Israel by the day in a pillar of a cloud and by night in a pillar of fire (Ex. 13 : 21). It is also stated that pillar 85 of a cloud or of fire was an angel (Ex. 14 : 19). Say that God fills the universe, and then God could send an 86 angel in a place in the universe. If there is a building in the universe, then God could send an angel to fill 87
3
the building. In addition, the building could be God itself since God can replace an angel as God. God has 88 power to do it. A bush is a part of the universe that God could replace as itself. The burned bush saw 89 could be an angel or God. Thus, Jesus Christ, who is the Spirit of God within him, is God, the Lord. It is 90 the truth to state that Christ Jesus is the Lord and there is no Lord except God or Christ. This is the true 91 God, and eternal life (1 John 5 : 20). 92 God is Spirit. The Spirit is different from the flesh. The flesh, among other things, is absolutely, 93 uncleanness, fornication, and lasciviousness (Gal. 5 : 19). The Spirit is love, joy, peace, gentleness, 94 goodness, long suffering, goodness, faith (Gal. 5 : 22). Love in God is kind and rejoiced in the truth (1 Cor. 95 13 : 4-7). No man could see God (Ex. 33 : 20), God face in particular (Ex. 33 : 23). However, God back parts 96 could be seen by man (Ex. 33 : 23). Therefore, in the era of early Christian, man, particularly his disciples, 97 could not see Christ face within Jesus Christ. They could see God in Jesus Christ as the back parts of God 98 only. Man could touch the body of Jesus Christ even put him in the cross. However, no one could touch 99 the Spirit of Christ within Jesus Christ. It seems that God gives the opportunity to see God (1 Cor. 2 : 9), 100 not the face within Christ, for man who loves God. God has revealed himself within Jesus Christ unto the 101 children of God by the Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea the deep thing of God (1 Cor. 2 : 10). 102 God is love, joy, pure, etc. Therefore, God is the truth. 103
3. Christ 104
Jesus Christ is Son of God [5]. The scripture indicates that there is one God, the Father, and one 105 Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 8 : 6). There is none other God (1 Cor. 8 : 4). Jesus Christ was conceived in his 106 mother was of the Holy Ghost (Matt. 1 : 20). The Holy Ghost, the Spirit is in Jesus Christ (Matt. 3 : 16, 107 Mark 1 : 10, Luke 3 : 22, and John 1 : 32). The Father, God created everything. Man’s life is for God, the 108 Spirit, and Holy Ghost. The children of God know about God through Jesus Christ, the Lord. He is the 109 Son of God, the Lord. It is reasonable to state that Christ, the Spirit, created all things. There is none other 110 Lord except Jesus Christ, God. God is the same as Christ. 111 According to the Bible, the coming of Christ is indicated as follows: God made covenant Abram 112 (Abraham) and his seed for an everlasting covenant as their God (Gen. 17 :7), the Almighty God (Gen. 17 : 113 1). Isaac was the son of Abraham and God had made a covenant with Isaac as an everlasting covenant, 114 too (Gen. 17 : 19). Moses stated that God would raise a prophet for Israel and they should hear the 115 prophet (Deut. 18 : 15). God, who was through Nathan, stated that God will set up David’s generation 116 and shall proceed up of bowels, and will establish his kingdom. God will establish the throne of his 117 kingdom forever, and will be his father and he will the son (II Sam. 7 : 12 -14). Jesus is the son of David. 118 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham (Matt. 1 : 1) can be seen 119 in Matt. 1 : 1 – 17 and Luke 3 : 23 – 38. The pedigree describes generation from both Joseph and Mary. 120 To answer the high priest, Jesus stated clearly that he was the Christ, the Son of the Blessed (Mark 121 14 : 61-62). Jesus has power to conduct items such as miracles and healings. More important, Christ can 122 resurrect the dead people and resurrected from the death. His miracles related to the Spirit, not the flesh 123 or natural man. The natural man can do “miracles” that related to mortality only. They only can make a 124 good item such as book, house and monument for instance. Man in the flesh could destroy a bible. 125 However, the flesh cannot destroy life in the Spirit! Jesus provides the way to life in the Spirit. The Spirit 126 is immortal. Natural man is mortal. Jesus Christ is the Lord. 127 Around two thousand years ago, Christ did a journey from the paradise to the earth around 128 thirty-three years, to the death for preaching the spirits in prison, and back to the earth for his disciples 129 and others, and then to paradise. He stated to his enemies that he was from above, the kingdom of God; 130 they were from beneath, the death. To indicate that he was from above, he made miracles and healings. 131 He preached the gospel for around three years. After that period, he went to the dead people world to 132
4
preach the gospel to them for three days. He resurrected from the death. Forty days later, he went to 133 paradise (Figure 1). Only God can do such journey. It is Christ. 134
135 Eternal being God Supreme being Heaven 136 : 137 138 139 140 141 Earth 142 143 144 Jesus Christ was on the globe 33 years. 145 He preached the gospel around 3 years to humans. 146 147 He preached the gospel to the spirits in the dead world. Earth of the dead 148 He was 3 days in the death and quickened by the Spirit. 149 150
Figure 1. This is the spiritual journey of Jesus Christ. God became man, dead in Jesus Christ, returned to 151 heaven through the globe. 152
Jesus Christ brought the original gospel to the world. He taught the genuine gospel to his 153 disciples. Only Christ can do this job. Man even Moses, David, for instance, could not do the job. To do 154 this job, Christ should be in a man form. It is a process. It is impossible if God directly teach the genuine 155 gospel to human. He should be in Jesus. When leading Israeli from Egypt to Palestine, Christ is in a pillar 156 of a cloud or of a fire. In the New Testament, Christ leads the disciples in Jesus Christ. Christ cannot be 157 seen by the disciples but they could see Jesus as a pillar of a cloud in the Moses time (Old Testament). 158 After teaching the genuine gospel to the world of the dead, Jesus Christ strengthened by the Spirit went 159 back to the world, and then to heaven along with the genuine gospel. Thus, the genuine gospel is in 160 heaven now along with Christ. This is the scholar event! For example, Christ in the mathematical model is 161 as ~ X ~ and the false is as - ~ X < ~; X = Y. These models are ideas. Thus, Christ fills the entire 162 universe, while the false not (< ~)! The Christ is in the paradise (≤ ~), while the false cannot reach the 163 paradise! 164
4. Son of Man 165
According to the Bible, God creates the spiritual man after his image and likeness. It is the truth. 166 However, it is not the truth that God created the natural man according to his image and likeness as Satan 167 and his seed opinion. It is heresy. There is no likeness between God, the Spirit or the Holy Ghost, and 168 Satan or the natural man. God, Christ, spiritual man is from above, heaven. Satan and natural man or the 169 flesh is from beneath. The first man, Adam, was spiritual man. Both Adam and Eve did not contaminate 170 by sin before Satan succeeded tempting Eve and then Adam. After falling in sin, Adam and Eve were 171 natural man. Christ went to this globe saving humans from Satan and his followers. 172 Jesus taught to his disciples that he, as the Son of man, must suffer many things, and be rejected 173 of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again (Mark 8 : 174
5
31). He had seen all things that he would face and had power to know these items. He told everything to 175 the disciples. He is Christ, the Lord, and God. 176 God could be everywhere at the same time in both heaven and hell. If I ascend up into heaven, 177 thou art there: if I made my bed in hell, behold, thou art there (Psalm 139 : 8). The Spirit, who raised Jesus 178 Christ from the death, is the same as God, Christ. Jesus put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the 179 Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison (1 Pet. 3 : 18 and 19), and then rose 180 up after three days along with the spirits in the death. 181 It could be stated Jesus died for three days. There was a darkness as long as three hours at that 182 time (Mark 15 : 33). It was dark, something as moonless night. A day was divided into two days since it 183 was separated by darkness. Jesus raised up when the Sabbath was past (Mark 16 : 1). It was three days 184 after he passed away. 185 Christ showed us around two thousand years ago about how the children of God would/will go 186 to the death and preach the spirits. The spiritual man will preach the gospel to the spirits, too. The beggar 187 named Lazarus into Abraham’s bosom did it (Luke 16 : 20) as an example for us. The spiritual man into 188 Abraham’s bosom will do as Lazarus did, as evidence that the gospel is right. 189 The spiritual journey of Jesus Christ is different from a Christian who catches up to heaven in 190 Paul’s vision (II Cor. 12 : 1-4). The person has seen paradise, but as a human, he certainly died and was 191 buried in the earth. This person is still waiting to be risen by the Lord in the day of the Lord (I Tess 4 : 16-192 17). Christ came from the heaven, descended into the earth, died, raised up in the third day, and returned 193 to the heaven (Mark 16 : 19) forty days later. Satan was from heaven. He and his angels were cast out into 194 the earth (Rev. 12 : 9). The devil and the false prophet have been cast into the lake of fire and brimstone 195 (Rev. 20 : 10). 196
5. Conclusion 197
Christ is the same as God. There is no Lord except God. As a man, Jesus Christ must die. After 198 three days preached the genuine gospel to the death, he came back to earth and then to heaven along 199 with the genuine gospel. The genuine gospel is in the paradise now. Spiritual man, as the son of God, 200 should follow Jesus Christ ways. Go to the world of the dead to preach the gospel to the spirits, and, of 201 course, follow Christ to the heaven. Satan, his angels and the false prophet has been thrown into the hell 202 forever. The history of Jesus Christ is scholar. 203

Which 310 is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 311 35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold he calleth Elias. 312 36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinager, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, 313 Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. 314 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 315 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. 316 39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the 317 ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 318 40 There were also women looking on a far off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the 319 mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 320 41 (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women 321 which came up with him unto Jerusalem. 322 46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a 323 sepulcher which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulcher. 324 Acts 3 : 18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ 325 should suffer, he heth so fulfilled. 326 1 Pet 3 : 18-20 327 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being 328 put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 329 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison: 330 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, 331 while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 332 Mark 16 : 6-7 333 6 And he said unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen: he 334 is not here: behold the place where they laid him. 335 Rom 14 : 9 336 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. 337 1 Cor 15 : 3-9 338 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins 339 according to the scriptures; 340 4 And that he was buried and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 341 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then the twelve: 342 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto 343 this present, but some are fallen asleep. 344 7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 345 8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. 346 9 For I am the least of the apostle, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the 347 church of God. 348 Mark 16 : 19 349 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand 350 of God. 351 Acts 1 : 9-11 352 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a loud received him out 353 of their sight. 354 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in 355 white apparel; 356

11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is 357 taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. 358 Eph 4 : 8-10 359 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 360 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 361 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all 362 things.) 363 364
