If Jesus is God how can he appear before the face (person) of God?

(Hebrews 9:24) For Christ entered not into a holy place made with hands, like in pattern to the true; but into the heaven itself, now to appear before the face of God for us:

    Oh...is that the only inconsistency you've found? Dig deeper both testaments are filled with internal inconsistencies.

    Jesus and his Father are two individual beings just as you or I are.

    He is our Defense Attorney for us when satan and the world accuse us. Jesus stands between us and satan's accusations and between us and the world's accusations, (when we have sincerely repented to Him), so we are clean to God's judgment through the defense of Jesus Christ.

    An 'advocate' is a defense attorney.

    1 John 2:1 KJV My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

    1 John 1:4 KJV nd these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

    5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

    6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

    7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    "Who do you say that I am?" Jesus asked Simon-Peter.

    "You are the Messiah. The Son of the Living God." Simon answered.

    "Blessed are you! Simon, son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven."

    Flesh and blood cannot reveal the secrets of God to you.... only God Himself can, and only by you humbling yourself and asking to know.

    This is not something men can figure out on their own... He made your brain.... He has made sure that you can't do it, so that no one can ever boast that they did. You must ask to know.

    Resurrected Christ in His glorified body, Php Chapter3, 1 Cor. 15. "For us" as our Advocate 1 John 2:1.

    Because he was the Word, part of the triumvirate God, who lowered himself to be a status lower than angels; to be that of a man. He was raised as a man. This means he is the first fruits of mankind to come before God. He however is found worthy to sit on the throne with God and to be given all things, which is essentially claiming he has been restored to his former self, yet different. This then means he has authority and it is not idolatry to pray to him as Hebrews explains. He furthermore has lived our life and knows what we go through, so now we can appeal to him for salvation.

    Clearly it's a feat that could only be pulled off by God himself, thus proof that Jesus is God.
