An appropriate subject entering this season. 🙂

Believers are sons of God by adoption, Adam and the angels are sons of God by direct creation, Christ is the only begotten Son of God: “his only begotten Son” (1J 4), the only Son that is begotten rather than created.

Rather than being created, Christ created all things that ever were created:
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” Jn 1
Which also shows his oneness with the Father, for the Father created all things through Christ:
“his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds” Heb 1

So the Trinity is two physical bodies, the Father and the Son, and the one infinite Spirit of the Father through which the Son and the Father are the same person. This proves the infinity of the Father’s Spirit, in that he gave all his Spirit to the Son (“God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him” Jn 3, “in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” Col 2), and yet both Father and Son equally have the same Spirit (“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” Jn 14).

Did Christ not create his body in Mary’s womb? He did, as he created all things. At first the egg cell was not Christ, but part of Mary’s body, part of the creation Christ made in the beginning. In the moment of conception, when all the fullness of the godhead entered that cell, like when Christ gave life to his own dead body in the tomb, he gave life to the unfertilised cell in Mary’s womb. He, the Father, did not create a thing, a creation, something separate from himself. He, the Father, sent out himself, he himself took form: the Son. So, like the Father’s body, whose back Moses saw in the holy mount, the Son’s body is also God’s own form.

(I needed a quick post ’cause it was really late, so… thoughts on the Trinity. 🤷‍♂️)
