So Kevin is asking.
Where is the Son now, beside the Father or inside the Father’s bosom heart?
It’s a very good question. It shouldn’t say why. No answers. I know saw first question. I said, Where is the sun now? I don’t know. Where it did. I don’t know. Well, Kevin, that is a really good question because you’re comparing two verses and I appreciate your Bible study and your diligence in looking at God’s Word. And I’m going to tell you an answer that might surprise you. But basically the answer is both. And I’ll tell you why. Because Jesus a beside the Father. Yeah, he is literally besides the Father. And is he B, inside the Father’s bosom in his heart? Yes. Spiritually metaphorically in a sentimental way, yes, jesus is in the bosom of the heart of the Father. And I’ll show you how this is true. So if you want to know where Jesus is, literally, hebrews chapter one, verse eight talks about where Jesus is being set on the throne. I love Hebrews chapter one because it makes it so clear for you on the shadow of a doubt about the divinity of Christ that Jesus is God and that Jesus sits on the throne. So in Hebrews chapter one, verse eight, it says, but unto the Son, god says to the Son, your throne, O God, is forever.
A scepter of righteousness is a scepter of your kingdom. So here we see. The Father tells the Son that your throne, oh God is forever. Which is funny, because then you go to Hebrews chapter eight, verse one, kind of the flip side. It talks about where Jesus is on this road. And when you look at Hebrews 81 now the things that you’re spoken of, this is the Sum. We have such a high priest who is set on the right hand of the throne of the majesty in the heavens. So here we see again, Jesus is on the throne at the right hand of the Father. Absolutely. There’s many verses that show us that Jesus is set on the right hand of the throne of the Father. And so, yes, Jesus is literally there. But what’s interesting is Jesus is definitely figuratively there as well. And you see this in John chapter one, verse 18, which is kind of funny. These ones and eight, john, chapter one, eight, it says, no man has seen God at any time, only to be gotten son, which is in the bosom of the Father. He has declared him. So, John, chapter one is talking about Jesus being the creator.
Jesus being God again. And basically it’s saying that Jesus is in the bosom of the Father, and he declares who the Father is. Jesus, like it says in Hebrews chapter one, jesus is the express image of his person. So Jesus came to express who God the Father is, and Jesus now after he’s been resurrected, is in heaven next to the Father. However, that doesn’t mean that Jesus can’t be in the heart of the Father, because if Jesus was literally always in the heart of the Father, like it kind of says in John, chapter 118, jesus would have never been able to look at him and see his face. But it says only Jesus has seen the Father. And so what I think this verse means is that Jesus is an expression of the heart of the Father, and the Father holds Jesus in his heart in a figurative sense, just like I have a child, and even though my child might sit next to me, but my child is in my heart always, it doesn’t matter where that child is in the world. That child will always be in my heart because they’re beloved of mine.
And we know that Jesus is beloved of his father. When Jesus was baptized, it says, he came up out of the water, and the Father spoke to Jesus. This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. And so we know that Jesus was definitely in his Father’s heart. God the Father loves his son with eternal love. And so, yes, Jesus is literally besides the Father in heaven, and he’s also, in a spiritual, emotional, sentimental level, in the heart of the Father. Absolutely. And I think that’s very easy to see when you think about the relationship between a father and a son. If you ever have a child, you’ll know that no matter what, your child will always be in your heart. I hope that answers the question. J or Wendy, anything else on this topic?
No, that’s good.
