John 20:28 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition)
28Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God.
Is it reasonable to deduce by the above text that sinful man has actually seen God the Almighty, or, is there another way to interpret this?
Note please this text:
Acts 7:55 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition)
55But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looking up steadfastly to heaven, saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God. And he said: Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
Clearly, the above text, shows that Stephen under the influence of God’s holy spirit saw Jesus at the right hand of YHWH/ JEHOVAH.
The angel who appeared to Moses at the burning bush actually said:
Acts 7:30-33 (King James Version)
30And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
31When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the LORD came unto him,
32Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
33Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
Exodus 3:2 (American Standard Version)
2 And the angel of Jehovah appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Joshua 5:15 (American Standard Version)
15 And the prince of Jehovah's host said unto Joshua, Put off thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.
Who really IS the Word, of JEHOVAH the Almighty?
