The first proof is from Psalm 2:7. It establishes that Christ in the flesh is the Second Person of the Godhead seated at the Father’s right hand. The second proof is from 2 Samuel 7:14. It establishes that Christ in the flesh is both the Son of God and the Heir of David, who will reign. The third proof is from Psalm 97:7. It establishes that Christ will return as God in human flesh. The fourth proof is from Psalm 104:4. It establishes that Christ created angels and that they continue to serve Him as both God and man.
The fifth proof is from Psalm 45:6-8 — “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, And the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness above Your companions.” This proof emphasizes Jesus’ deity and authority. Jesus is God, and His throne or authority is forever. The scepter is an Old Testament allusion that the Seed-Son, who came through Abraham, Judah, and David would be King.
- The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. - Genesis 49:10
- I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near; A star shall come forth from Jacob, A scepter shall rise from Israel, And shall crush through the forehead of Moab, And tear down all the sons of Sheth. - Numbers 24:17
Furthermore, God anointed Jesus above His companions. His companions are the angels. The anointing referred to is the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which occurred at His baptism.
- You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him - Acts 10:38
