God's Son does not lie!
God's messenger to Jesus' mother, Mary, clearly stated that Jesus would be called the "SON OF GOD". Yet many follow a manmade teaching that Jesus is really God in human flesh. Jesus specifically says He is "THE SON OF GOD". If people believe anything else they are calling Jesus a liar and are saying they do not believe Jesus, which will negatively affect their eternal life. Jesus put a lot of effort in His ministry on earth directing people to His Father. Jesus teaches us to pray daily to His Father, who is our Father in heaven. Jesus was frequently recorded as praying to God. Jesus is not deceiving or lying when praying to His Father. Deceiving and lying is a characteristic of the devil. Some are confused when Jesus said, "I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE", forgetting that Jesus quoted God regarding married couples when He said, "THE TWO WILL BECOME ONE". Yes, Jesus' oneness with God is stronger than the oneness of a married couple as Jesus says He intentionally says what God tells Him to "SAY" and does what His Father tells Him to "DO". 1
A few who consider themselves Christians teach that God had more sons even though Jesus clearly says He is God's "ONLY" son. Some even suggest that Jesus is just the son, implying that He is not very important, forgetting that God gave Jesus the authority to "JUDGE" and gave Jesus all "AUTHORITY" on heaven and earth. Jesus says He was with God before "BEFORE THE WORLD WAS MADE". Jesus said He would be sitting at the "RIGHT HAND" of God, the place of honor. Many years after Jesus rose from the dead, John was made aware of both Jesus and God presence at the same time in Jesus' revelation to John. The Son of God is awesome and definitely not someone to diminish or disbelieve or treat as a liar. 2

Understanding the Teaching: What I share in the teaching is what I believe God wants me to share. All the direct quotes from God are highlighted in royal purple. Of course the words of Jesus are in red. Rather than follow some made up doctrine, remember that Jesus said that every thing He said (Jn 12:49) and everything He did (Jn 14:31) comes from God. All teachings and all opinions should be supported by what we learn from God or Jesus (see the scripture referred to in the footnote).
MARRIAGE WORKSHOP MOMENT
On March 22, 2006, a pastor and his wife in Tennessee were having a discussion concerning one of their three children. Apparently they had difficulty in communication in their marriage. To get him to talk to her, she pointed a shotgun at him. Later she said, "I intended to hold my husband at gunpoint to force him to talk about his problems with our ". The gun accidentally went off and he was killed. (note; she has served some jail time and is out and has regained custody of their children) My point in sharing this is that calling time out and using the Speaker Listener Technique is a better way to communicate than pointing a shotgun at your spouse. Research has shown that over 80% of the people who have affairs say it is "not about sex" and it is "not about the physical appearance" of the other person. It is about companionship, acceptance, friendship, feeling good about your self, being appreciated, being admired, etc. Jesus says "Treat others as you want them to treat you." Lk 6:31 (TL) The companionship, acceptance, friendship, feeling good about your self, being appreciated, being admired, etc. that we all like and need should come from you for your spouse, not from a co-worker or a stranger.
The Better Half "When your partner won't support your efforts to make your marriage better" Without your spouse's support to improve your marriage, you can still pray daily for God's will to be done in each of your lives and your marriage. Jesus said, "all things are possible with God", Mk 10:27 NI). Obviously it is not wise to try to force your spouse to talk to you. Jesus says "Treat others as you want them to treat you." Lk 6:31 (TL) The companionship, acceptance, friendship, feeling good about your self, being appreciated, being admired, etc. that we all like and need should come from you for your spouse, not from a co-worker or a stranger. You have a better chance of improving your marriage with kindness than with meanness. When a spouse calls "time out", it is an opportunity for a couple to calm down before continuing the conversation at a later time (anywhere from an hour to no later than the next day) using the Speaker Listener Technique. Initially after calling time out it is an opportunity to take authority over the enemy and pray for the marriage.
Example: "In the name of Jesus I command you demons to shut up and leave our marriage and not return"
"Thank you God for helping our marriage be in Your will and guiding us in our relationship, in Jesus name, amen."
When a spouse will not cooperate, you can still take authority over the enemy and pray for your marriage.
