Who is Jesus?
If you are in a close walk with our Lord Jesus Christ meaning that you are in an intimate relationship with Him as one of His disciples currently on earth, there will surely come a time in your walk with Him, that He may ask you the same question about who He is, just as He asked His disciples back then as written in the bible. You need to be in an intimate two-way interpersonal relationship directly with Jesus Christ i.e. you and Him directly. One of the ways to get into this sweet and direct personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the Holy Ghost School.
Kindly feel free to check out the Holy Ghost School link above, later on to find out more. So, who is Jesus to you? Is Jesus Christ God?
The first thing everyone needs to know is that there are not too many scriptures in the bible where you will find Jesus Christ purposefully introducing Himself as God. You may wonder why, yet we know that He is God. The Holy Spirit already gave us the reasons and answers to that and you can see for yourselves as below:
The primary purpose of Jesus Christ's coming to this world was to do the will of the Father which was:
1. To bring the Gospel to a lost world for the purpose of Salvation of the entire human race 2. To bring and establish Righteousness, Judgement, Truth and to bear witness to the Truth3. To correct doctrinal errors4. To show and prove that God is Love thereby establishing the commandment of love of God and mankind i.e. one's neighbour4. To take our place of Sufferings and Death due to sin in order to redeem us back to God5. To pay the ultimate price of redemption from sin6. To reconcile and reunite mankind back to his God which He actioned by actually suffering terribly and died a terribly shameful death on the cross because of our sins, the sins of the entire human race in order to save us from hell!7. To bless mankind with all manners of blessings and the gifts of God, the gifts of mercy and Forgiveness of sins, Salvation, Faith, Healing, Deliverance, Eternal Life in the Kingdom of God which starts from here on earth and so on, and so forth.
From the aforementioned, it is evident that Jesus Christ did not come to show, announce nor prove Himself to be God to anyone. This is clearly the revelational meaning of the scriptures in Philippians 2:5-8 which says:
Verse 5: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Verse 6: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:Verse 7: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Verse 8: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
From the above scriptures in Philippians 2:5-8, Jesus Christ always knew that He is God, He needs no reminder for this fact and that He remains God even for evermore! So He humbled Himself in order to achieve His primary objectives of coming to this dirty and doomed world. If He had even openly declared Himself as God, He would have deviated from the scheduled plans since concluded in the heavens for His coming to this world and mankind would not have been saved! Verse 6 makes it clear; "who being in the form of God", meaning He came as God but in a form not revealing Himself as God because He thought it not robbery to be equal with God, meaning He did not come to square with God the Father nor try to prove to whosoever, that is God! Alleluia!!! Furthermore, just as you do not need to go on telling everyone that cares to listen that you are a human being or that you are a man or woman when you already know it, so did Jesus Christ have no need to be stating and declaring that He is God. He actually did this a whole lot in the Old Testament and that fact was also passed down the generations of the Israelites and other nations that had dealings with the Israelites. Since we were not by birth and biologically from Israel, God in His benevolent love gave the entire human race an open cheque, an open gift of Salvation from God to everyone who by faith, believes that Jesus Christ is God. Conclude to say therefore, that anyone that does not confess Jesus Christ as their God and also as Son of God, is an idolater and such always ends up in hell inevitably, after their sojourn here on earth. This is the very words of God, i.e. Jesus Christ Himself in the book of John 3:18 which says:
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God".
This is simply because there is no other name given unto mankind by which anyone whosoever, can be saved from hell and eternal destruction except the Glorious and ALL Powerful name of Jesus Christ. More so, it is because in Jesus Christ alone can anyone whosoever, both find and get Salvation, Life and Eternal Life (See Acts 4:12, John 11:25)
In view of the afore mentioned backed with infallible scriptural evidences, Jesus Christ is God as further shown in the following texts as shown below.
He is God, the Son of God and the Saviour of the world (1 John 4:14)
He Christ, the Messiah (Mathew 16:17-18)
He is Love and Jesus really does love you (John 13:34-35)
He is the Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)
He is the Resurrection and the life. In Him only is life obtained (John 11:25)
He is the ONLY Way to God the Father (John 14:6)
He is the Truth and the Life (John 16:6)
He is the ONLY one that saves and by Him alone can anyone be saved from death and hell (Acts 4:12)
He is the One that will judge everyone that has ever walked the face of the earth both dead and alive (2 Corinthians 5:10, 2 Timothy 4:1)
He is the Mighty healer (1 Peter 2:24)
He is the Restorer (Psalm 23:3)
He is the Blesser.
He is the "ONLY Mediator" between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5).
The above scripture in 1 Timothy 2:5 is plain and simple. It is emphasizes that there is ONLY ONE mediator between God and mankind and went ahead to reveal that ONLY mediator as Jesus Christ alone. This evidently exposes the foundational falsehood of other innumerable falsehoods, fallacies, commandments and traditions of men craftily passed onto their followers and of some people who claim that a certain Mary mediates between them and God which is contrary to scripture, the infallible word of God that cannot be changed. This is a doctrine of demons and the real Mary that gave birth to Jesus Christ has no idea whatsoever what these folks are doing with her name and person. There is no marriage in heaven as clearly stated by Jesus Christ Himself in Mathew 22:30, so Mary lacks absolutely, the position, authority, grace, opportunity and so on, to mediate on behalf on any human being whosoever. Let those who are in error, come to the full knowledge of the truth. The bible does not lie!
Going back to the Focus of this Teaching therefore....
Jesus is God as evidently declared in this scripture. "One God".
Here, Stephen who was filled with the Holy Ghost while being stoned to death, looked up into heaven and saw Jesus Christ standing in Glory in an open vision. He called upon Jesus as God. He called Jesus both Lord and God and prayed Jesus to receive his spirit upon his death.Acts 9:3-6
Saul was a religious Jew that hated and persecuted the disciples of Jesus and early Christians. Jesus Christ Himself after His resurrection appeared to Saul and arrested him on his way to Damascus in present day Syria. Saul was armed with every authority from the Jewish high priests for to go arrest every Christian and disciple of Jesus Christ he could lay his hands on be it male or female and bring them bound into Jerusalem. However, when Jesus appeared to Saul, he called Jesus Lord and Jesus Christ declared who He is to Saul. You can read the rest of the event in the 9th Chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.Acts 9:10-18
God, Jesus Christ, spoke to both Ananias and Saul. He brought them together for His will as God to be done. Saul had lost his sight because of the great light and Glory of Jesus Christ that he saw! So Jesus in His love and mercies, sent Ananias to Saul to go lay hands on him and restore his sight back to him and for him to be filled with the Holy Ghost. Then Ananias meeting Saul, declared the following words to him in verse 17:"And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost". Attestation is given to the person of Jesus here again calling Him Lord.John 21:14-17
After His resurrection from the dead, Jesus appeared to His disciples the 3rd time and they saw Him in the new glorious flesh and dined with Him physically! Here, Peter called Jesus Lord three (3) different times. Note that we Christians that end up in heaven shall have the same kind of glorious body like Jesus Christ and this present body shall perish away. See Romans 8:23 and 1 John 3:2
For about a thousand years before Jesus Christ came in the flesh to this world, His miraculous birth and personality as not just God but clearly described and named as "The Mighty God", was long foretold by the prophet Isaiah as evident again in the scripture below:Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace!Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the Lord thy God (Jesus Christ), He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations
Have you therefore confessed Jesus Christ as your God, Lord and personal Saviour? Are you still in idolatry? Are you still in the errors that has led billions before you (both those you know and do not know) to hell because they failed to confess Jesus Christ as their Saviour and as their God? Are you still in the error of denying Jesus Christ your God which inevitably leads to hell? Jesus Christ who is God that gave the 10 Commandments declared in Exodus 20:3 that you must not have any other God beside Him. He went further to say in Exodus 20:5 that if you choose any other God besides Him or apart from Him, you simply hate Him and that you are an idolater. Idolatry is simply the sin of hating God!
Therefore, ask yourself why you want to end up in hell? If you die, where will you end up? Jesus loves you and does not want you to go to hell fire. Jesus did NOT create hell for you, but your sin or sins can take you to hell fire unless you repent and sin no more. If you do not want to go to hell fire which is everlasting, then you must repent of all your sins now and accept Jesus into your life. If you are ready, confess all your sins now in Jesus name. Ask Jesus for mercy & forgiveness now. He will forgive you.
If you have sincerely confessed your sins, please say these words: Lord Jesus, I believe in my heart that You are the Son of God. I believe You died for me. Now I accept and confess You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Jesus, please come into my life forevermore. My Lord Jesus, please remove my names from the books of hell, death and destruction and write my names in Your Lamb's book of life in Jesus name I pray. Amen. CONGRATULATIONS and run away from sin.
