“To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it. … Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome …” (Deuteronomy 10:14, 16-17)

“He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. … On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:13, 16)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

“Since the Father is within the Lord and the Lord and the Father are One, and also since one must believe in the Lord to have eternal life, it is plain that the Lord is God.” (Emanuel Swedenborg, New Jerusalem and Its Heavenly Doctrine, Kern, R.C., trans., §284)
