23 So that all men may give honor (reverence, homage) to the Son just as they give honor to the Father. [In fact] whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, Who has sent Him.
John 5:23 AMPC
Honor the Son
The Father honored the Son by setting Him at His own right hand after His death, burial, and resurrection.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Revelation 3:21 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have ever lasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
The Father sent the Son to die for our sins. The Father didn't die for our sins because He sent His Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1 John 2:23 KJV
Some believers unknowingly deny the Son. They don't believe that the Son is literally seated with the Father in His throne. They believe that the Father is the Son. They deny the existence of the Son by NOT believing that the Son was honored and sat down at the right hand of the Father.
24 Father , I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
John 17:24 KJV
We must believe in the Father and the Son. They are divine beings that operate in unity. The Son only does the will of the Father.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear , I judge: and my judgment is just ; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
John 5:30 KJV
We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We honor the Father, Son and believe the Son is seated WITH / BESIDE the Father in His throne. We don't deny the Son's existence, nor do we dishonor Him in any way. We pray you do the same.
