Numbers

Chapter 23

19: God is not a man, that he should lie;
neither the son of man, that he should repent:
hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken,
and shall he not make it good?

I had been in a discussion on this topic sometime ago, and I asked the Lord about it.  The answer I got was God is a man.  How do I know that?  Jesus Christ is God and he is a male.

God is not a man as in gender or as in humanity? I thought the KJV did use the male pronoun but I do agree that God is not a part of earthly humanity.

Yes I agree with that God is male also. Do you think the posted scripture Number 23:19 is more about  humanity?

God is not a man as in a mortal human being like you and me.  He is more than that, but in his appearance to the human race, he came in the form of a man.

Are you saying Jesus Christ is not God, or he was not a man?

Jesus was a man who walked on this earth 2000 years ago.Jesus is God John 10:30.He was either the Son of God or a madman to say the things that He did.Read your Bible.It is your choice.

Then how am I wrong in anything I said?  I said God is a man because Jesus Christ is God and he is male.  I could also point out that he calls the Godhead Father.  When the Bible says God is not a man that he should lie, it only means he isn't a mortal human being like we are.  It doesn't mean he isn't male.

What did I confuse?  You told me I was wrong when I stated that God is male.  I know he is a male because Jesus Christ is God and he is a man.  What did I say that was untrue?

you all need to define "God"     once again you guys are talking about the Father, the Son and the Spirit as being the same thing and they are not.

 

 

Jesus is a man......   or was and is what we will some day be.

 

The Holy Spirit is just that.....

 

The Father is something that looks like Jesus did when he was here for he told us that when we had seen him we had seen the Father.

 

So I would say that the Father is male also......    I know that may be twisting things a bit......   but it's cool anyway..

Forever A Jew

And The KING Of KINGS

 

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Revelation 17:14

 

My LORD And My God

When did someone bring up the Holy Spirit? I read the discussion being about God the Father and Jesus whom both seem male or are at least referred to as being male. Also if one believes in the Trinity then they might see all as one...

For the record - God is spirit.

God entered humanity as a man because of the laws of nature.

Man is human - God is spirit.

The question probably should be - is God "male"?

The Bible does speak of God in terms of male characteristics - He, husband etc.

Nobody did bring up the Holy Spirit because we have no evidence that the Holy Spirit ever appeared to anyone in any form.  Well, that is not entirely true.  The Holy Spirit appeared as flaming tongues of fire on the day of Pentecost.  The only instances where we see God in a human like form, he is male.  We know that God created Adam in his image, and Eve was formed from Adam's rib.  There is no instance of God ever appearing as a female in any form.  You could say that God the Holy Spirit isn't male, but it is obvious that God is male because of Jesus Christ and the Father.

Correct.  God is also described as heavenly Father and his only begotten son, Jesus Christ.  The Holy Spirit is only shown to be a Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is called our comforter and teacher and has appeared as flaming tongues of fire, but there is nothing in any of that to indicate being male or female, just Spirit.

God (The Father) ~ Delighted Abba

 

My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights. Proverbs 3:11-12

 

God (The Son) ~ Loving Savior

 

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, Ephesians 5:25 (ESV)

 

God (The Holy Ghost) ~ Tender Teacher

 

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26

 

My Mighty LORD God Almighty

 

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him,

 

and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

 

And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Matthew 3:16-17

I agree that no one brought up the Holy Spirit but I was responding to "the other ones" post that we were talking about them as being the same. I was confused by the statement and how we need to define God. I do agree that one can't really say the Holy Spirit is male but that the the Father and the Son are male. This is just a general observation taken from my college peers (no data behind it just my observation) but I feel there is a push to make God more gender neutral or to see God as a female rather than male. Have you ever seen this occurrence Butero? Is there some type of danger in seeing God as a male rather than gender neutral or a female?

I think there is a definite move to make God have a feminine side or at least gender neutral.  The TNIV translation changed the text to make God gender neutral to the best of their ability.  All I want is the truth.  I want to see God as he is.  I did notice one thing in the text Fresno Joe brought into the conversation,  It actually refers to the Holy Spirit as "he."  "He shall teach you all things."
