§ 36 And as God in the beginning knowed that man would fall, therefore He could put him on free moral agency, knowing because He could display His attributes to be a Father, to be a Son, to be a Healer, to be a Saviour... How could He save, 'less something lost? And in God was the attributes, before there even was an angel or a molecule or anything, God was by Himself, alone; but He wasn't God, ' cause God is an object of worship. There was nothing for Him to worship--nothing to worship Him. But His attributes displayed something and made an angel. Then He was God. Then He made a man; give him free moral agency. He fell. Then when he fell, He become a Saviour. In the fall he took sickness, so He become a healer. See? It's displaying God's attributes. See what I mean?
§ 44 God was one unit at one time. In that unit was attributes. And He was a Saviour. By nature He was a Saviour. If there had never been a sinner, how would He ever been a Saviour? He couldn't save until He permitted sin. God's a Healer. And He cannot heal unless there be somebody sick to heal. See, if there'd never been a sickness, there'd never been a Healer. God being a Healer, His own attributes projected these things. There had to be something to respond to that attribute that was in God. God... The word "God" means "an object of worship." God wanted to be worshipped, so He had to project something that would worship Him. Jesus said to the woman at the well, "God is a Spirit. And they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth."
§ 16 All these things are attributes of God, just so that in the--the end, the Bible said, Jesus said, "You will know that I am in the Father, the Father in Me; I in you, and you in Me. It's God becoming tangible. Your own wife, you and your husband, is just a shadow, a negative of God and His Wife, the Church. See, it's just God's attribute being displayed in shadows and types, like the Old Testament was to the New. See? Then in the end, it's all winds up, God tangible. God in Christ, tangible, made flesh, dwelled among us. And in that great Millennium to come, God in the form of Christ, sets upon the throne of David; and the Church, His Bride, Husband and Wife together...
§ 210 God only had one Name, and His Name is Jesus. That was His Son; He took the Name of His Son. God... Now, Jesus, the body was a man. We know that. That was the Son of God that was overshadowed. Now, we do not believe in a oneness type, the people that says God's like your finger. We believe there's three attribute--attributes of God, three attributes of God, God manifested in. But there's one God.
§ 38 And any Greek scholar knows that that word, "Eternal Life," comes from the word "Z-o-e, Zoe," which means "God's Own Life." That's right. The only way that you ever can have Life, there's only one form of Eternal Life and that's God's Own Life in you. See? Then you have Eternal Life, because He is the only Eternal there is. And we are the attributes of His thoughts before there was even a foundation of the world or anything. All this is just His thinking, and we're the display of His thoughts of what it was.
