Did you notice that I didn't actually quote the verse when I said that?

I recognize that the verse does not say "as."

I'm simply trying to get you to recognize the figure of speech that was being used!

In other words, God making Moses God to Pharaoh IS NOT LITERAL!
That's great that you did not use the word "as"

God was speaking literally, not figuratively.

The word "God" or "god" does not always refer to the Creator but God uses that word much more broadly. Man in his arrogance likes to tell God what God means. When in truth, we should seek to find out what God said and means. God uses the word God to refer to men who represent and serve him as well as in other usages as well. The word "god" is used much more broadly than most people use the word "god". Hence, we miss out on truths that we could have learned

Because you say so?

Because last I checked, Moses was just a man, and was always a man.

Hypocrite.

You said:

Don't be a hypocrite.

When in truth, we should seek to find out what God said and means.

And you assume I haven't?

God uses the word God to refer to men who represent and serve him

Well, no, He doesn't.

On the contrary:

Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk on it:“I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness, And will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles,To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the prison, Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them.” - Isaiah 42:5-9 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah42:5-9&version=NKJV

That includes calling someone "God."

as well as in other usages as well.

The only time God calls someone/thing a "god" is when He is mocking them.

The word "god" is used much more broadly than most people use the word "god". Hence, we miss out on truths that we could have learned

Maybe you should sit down and learn the usages yourself.

I am also waiting on your reply to this as well, if you would, please.

Well, it wasn't honest rejecting the Trinity.

But I do believe you were convinced by false teaching, which caused you to change your thinking.

Now answer my question.

Who do you think is speaking in Revelation 21:7?

Moses was a prophet that spoke what God told him to speak

Clearly, Those were God's words and it is notable to recognize that God makes reference to His son, Jesus Christ, in that God states that He God will be his God and that he will be his son.

"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."

Jesus is the one who overcame

So which is it? Does He or doesn't he?

Good news! I am not a hypocrite I am well informed.

Am I well informed and well educated in the scriptures?

I am.

Oh, just for your further education, simply because I used the words, "I am" does not mean that I am God, I know that you believe that Jesus is God because he said "I am" so I do not want you to be confused about that fact that I too, said, "I am"

Using the words, "I am" does not mean that the person using those words are God Almighty.

Am I right?

I am!

And you assume I haven't?

No, I do not assume that, I conclude that based on the posts of yours that I have read

In what way does that go against anything I said?

Moses was, last I checked, just a man. He wasn't God. He wasn't literally a god.

God made him "a god to Pharaoh." the "to Pharaoh" but is important. It doesn't change the fact that Moses was a human, and never a god, nor was he God. It simply means that Moses was given power, the power of God, to do miracles before Pharaoh.
