Ah, thank you for unblocking me! I have returned the favour. Here is one person's explanation as to how the man, Jesus Christ, could speak of having the heavenly Father as His God even though the Bible states that this Jesus was God, prior to becoming a man.
The command to worship Christ as God (not a different God, by the way) is given by the Father, which is why Jesus had no need to require it of His followers. Once they grasped just who He really was (the eternal Word who was with God in the beginning, who IS God, and who made everything that was made – John 1:1-14) they worshipped Him with awe. God the Father said to all His angels that they must worship Jesus Christ. That’s in Hebrews 11-6. If angels must worship Christ, how much more so must we lesser humans!
The vision Jesus gave to John on the isle of Patmos showed Jesus in the centre of God’s throne in Heaven, being worshipped by all who are in Heaven. That’s in Revelation chapter 5 and elsewhere.
Jesus told His disciples that they could pray to Him and He would grant their requests. That’s in John 14:14.
Jesus told His disciples that they must give Him the same honour as they give the Father. John 5:32-33
Jesus accepted the worship of His disciples, eg when Thomas called Him “My Lord and my God” Jn 20:28.
But while He was confined to the limitations of being a human on Earth, He avoided saying “Worship me” because His glory was veiled. And there were many people who so hated Him, they would use any excuse to stone Him to death. Jesus knew He had to die on the cross to be an atoning sacrifice so He had to bide His time. It wasn’t until after His resurrection that the penny dropped fully with the disciples. Yet even before then, people fell down in adoration before Jesus, and not once did He rebuke them. But angels instantly rebuke humans falling down before them!
Think well on this. For if we do not honour Jesus just as much as we honour the Father, we do not honour the Father. Worship is the greatest honour we give the Father. Jesus requires the same honour. It is only because the one Being of God subsists in three uncreated, co-equal ‘persons’ that we worship God when we worship the Son, who is God incarnate.
