  • JESUS IS GOD

    I have written this document to show that the scriptures support the fact that Jesus is God and what better place to start than in the beginning. In the old Testament we know that God created all things. Gen 1:1 (NKJV) "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (But the New Testament says of Jesus.) Col 1:15-17 (NKJV) "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist." (Also) John 1:2-3 (NKJV) "He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." (Jesus is the same God that created all things for we know that there is only one God.) Isa 43:10 "You are My witnesses," says the LORD, "And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me.

    In Genesis God created man in his own image, but notice how when God speaks He says in our image. Who was He talking to? Gen 1:26-27 (NKJV) "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (He couldn't have been talking to the angels because we were made a little lower than the angels.) Psa 8:4-5 (NKJV) "What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor." (There is only one conclusion and that is that He was communicating with the Godhead, the Father ,the Son, and the Holy Spirit. in Who's image we were made. Jesus Christ Who is the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form.) Col 2:8-9 (NKJV) "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;"

    Isa 9:6 (NKJV) "For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Since when was God the Father ever a child!)

    1 John 5:7 (NKJV) "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one." (In John we find out exactly Who this Word is.) John 1:1-5 (NKJV) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." 1:14 "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."

    John 3:13 (NKJV) ""No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven." Only God who is omnipresent could have made this statement. Can Jesus being just a man have been on Earth and yet in Heaven at the same time?

    This verse Speaks for itself, John 14:5-9 (NKJV) "Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" 6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him." 8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us." 9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?"

    John 20:27-29 (NKJV) "Then He said to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing." 28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" 29 Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."" (If Jesus wasn't God how could He let Thomas call Him "My Lord and My God", shouldn't He have rebuked him?)

    John 10:27-33 (NKJV) ""My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. 30 "I and My Father are one." 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, "Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?" 33 The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God."" (This was the same reason the Jews sought to have Him killed. Because He claimed to be God)

    John 8:56-59 (NKJV) ""Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad." 57 Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?" 58 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." 59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by." (The Jews knew their scriptures and they knew exactly what Jesus was saying when He said "before Abraham was I AM." There was only one I AM and that is what God Himself told Moses that His Name was.) Exo 3:13-14 (NKJV) "Then Moses said to God, "Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they say to me, 'What is His name?' what shall I say to them?" 14 And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'""

    One thing that seperates the one true God from all the other false gods that are worshiped is prophecy. God in the Old Testement said in. Isa 44:8 Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one." He goes on to say in Isa 41:21-24 "Present your case," says the LORD. "Bring forth your strong reasons," says the King of Jacob. "Let them bring forth and show us what will happen; Let them show the former things, what they were, That we may consider them, And know the latter end of them; Or declare to us things to come. Show the things that are to come hereafter, That we may know that you are gods; Yes, do good or do evil, That we may be dismayed and see it together. Indeed you are nothing, And your work is nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination. Again He says in Isa 42:9 (KJV) "Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them." Yet Jesus Used the same expression, (Prophecy) to show he is this same I AM. The very same proof that God in the Old Testement used to prove that there is no other God like Him. Jesus said in John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. (he) being in italics in the KJV so in other words that ye may believe that I AM. The very same I AM that spoke to Moses on Mount Siani.

    Try to comprehend what God is saying here about Jesus it will blow you away

    Heb 1:1-13 (NKJV) "God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"? 6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him." 7 And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire." 8 But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions." 10 And: "You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; 12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail." 13 But to which of the angels has He ever said: "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool"?"

    If You know anybody that can explain the nature of God, and how that the Three are One, I would love to meet them. We are just to believe what the Bible says who He is in faith. God from the very beginning was a Godhead and that is the way he will always be. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. {Check Acts 17:29, Rom 1:20, Col 2:9} The only analogy I can think to describe the nature of God is in that of water. Just as water in nature is H20 but yet comes in three forms (water, ice, and steam) it never ceases being H20. The Triune Godhead is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each one never ceasing to be God in His fullness. The Godhead is something that is clearly seen throughout scripture. It might be hard to comprehend that three can at the same time be one, but that is something that we just have to except in faith. Just the same way we except in faith that God in six days created the universe and on the seventh day rested.

    1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
