Matthew 1:23- Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
After much debate I have seen on the topic, and people saying things like “Jesus never specifically addressed that,” I decided I would write a post, using God’s word, that Jesus Christ was and IS God Himself. Let us first look at all of the events, where Jesus made Himself equal to God.
John 5:23-That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
John 8:24- I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he , ye shall die in your sins.
John 10:30- I and my Father are one.
Jesus claimed to be equal to God, and therefore claimed to be God. Now let us look at a comparitive study with the Old and New Testament (each comparison alphabetically labeled).
Isaiah 44:6- Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
New Testament :
2 Peter 1:1- Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
Revelation 1:17- And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
Throughout the Old Testament, you will read of God being referred to as Lord. Without anything further, let us go into the New Testament.
Acts 16:31- And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Luke 5:8- When Simon Peter saw it , he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
John 11:21- Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
Acts 4:33 –And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
These are few of MANY events where Jesus is referred to as Lord. Now though, let us take this a step further. If you deny the deity of Jesus Christ, then you are not saved. You MUST believe that Jesus is Lord and therefore believe He is God.
Next time you run into someone deny the deity of Christ, or you run into someone that says “Jesus never said anything about that” (most commonly used to support sodomites) I hope you will take what you have learned from this post (if you didn’t already have these arguments) and use it in your war against Satan and his children.
