Does Romans 9:5 assert the deity of Christ?

This is the gist of MLJ's arguments for the translation of Romans 9:5 found in the AV and the vast majority of translations, followed by the individual points supporting the hypothesis.

1 Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Sermon "Christ … Who is … God", available at Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust, and as a full chapter in vol. 9 of his 14-volume Commentary on Romans, God's Sovereign Purpose, Romans 9:1-33 (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1991.)
Christ ... Who is ... God
Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)


Notice how easy it is to mix up arguments:

Murray Harris in his study of this question (Jesus as God: The New Testament Use of Theos in Reference to Jesus [Baker, 1992], ch. 6, pp. 143-172) found that, of the 56 commentaries he consulted, 36 felt the reference was to Christ, 13 felt it was a reference to God and 7 were unsure.

It is not quite clear to me what you say. I assume “the reference was to Christ” means that θεὸς in this verse refers to Christ. In other words, that Christ is God. But then you seem to use the place of blessing as an argument against this view. But I understood the placement of blessing to be an argument for this view and against the doxology approach. What am I missing?
