In Hebrews we find some things that when looked at raises doubt that Jesus is God! How can Jesus be God if he has a God?
1st (NWT Hebrews 5:7) 7 During his life on earth, Christ offered up supplications and also petitions, with strong outcries and tears, to the One who was able to save him out of death, and he was favorably heard for his godly fear .AND (American Standard Heb 5:7) Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear,
It says Jesus has godly fear and at Heb 1:9 we read: You loved righteousness, and you hated lawlessness. That is why God, your God, anointed you with the oil of exultation more than your companions.”(NWT) and 7 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows. (American Standard)

Your question, "How can Jesus be God if he has a God?" has a simple answer. Jesus is a 'mighty one'. Therefore he qualifies as a god. Did you know all of the dedicated nation of Israel were gods? Read for yourself Jesus own words in John 10:34, 35 where he quoted Psalm 82:6 naming the Jews as gods.
But you pointed to Hebrews. Look for yourself to chapter one of Hebrews. Focus on the first few verses and plainly Jesus is named as the heir. Look in any dictionary for the word 'heir'. An heir is the one who inherits. In the case of these verses. Jesus is the appointed heir. By definition alone, it is totally impossible for Jesus to be Almighty God.
By the word of the one true God and Father of Jesus, Jesus is the Son of God. See Mark 1:11
Please note 1 John 2:22. "Anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ is the antichrist". Christ literally means anointed. Or from Hebrew Messiah. Anyone teaching Jesus is Almighty God actually denies both the One true God (the Father) and Jesus as the Son of God.
Anyone who wishes to argue with God or with Jesus is in very deep doo doo. As John 3:36 says, "The wrath of God remains on them. The will not see life."Source(s): Holy Bible

Those that call themselves christians yet ignore what the bible says are described at (2 Timothy 4:3, 4) For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories.
There's literally hundereds if not thousands of scriptures that say Jesus is the only begotten son and "not" God! Jesus prays to God, Jesus says God is greater than he is, Jesus has a God and God is over him as his head!
Yes Jesus has a God just as you pointed out using scriptures!
Another scripture that describes people that keep believing in paganism as a christian faith is (2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.
Satan decieved Eve but he didn;t stopped there, he's still decieving people today! People go to church on sunday and then they are christian, what about the other six days of the week? I work with people like that, they can't say a full sentence without swearing but on sunday they don't cuss! Smoking is an unhealthy habit for the smoker and those around them yet on sunday they go to church and say they are christian, what about (Mark 12:31) The second is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Are they really showing love with such a unclean and unhealthy habit that harms them and their family and friends? What about living together without being married and those I work with can't wait for friday it's payday and they go party and hook up friday and sunday but come suday they are in church!
That's because in church they are hearing false teachers that teach paganism rather than what is good and wholesome! It's true that not all are this way but the problem is they have to put up with those that are!
Jesus is "NOT" part of the pagan trinity, anyone that care to study will see that the trinity is pagan and not christian!
