Is Jesus God? What the bible says? (v .1)
Many groups especially some cults teaches that Jesus is not true God but He is a created spiritual being by Father God. One cult teaches that Jesus is angel Michael where as Muslims claims that He is only a prophet of God. We need to be sure what Bible tell us about our beloved saviour.
Supernatural Birth • Mat 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened in this way. When his mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, before they lived together she was discovered to be pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
He is `God with us’ Prophecy in 700 BC Isa 7:14 But the LORD will still give you proof. A virgin is pregnant; she will have a son and will name him Immanuel.
Fulfillment of prophecy • Mat 1:23 "See, a virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name him Immanuel," which means, "God (theos)with us.”
He is mighty God • Prophecy in 700 BC • Isa 9:6 A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And he will be our ruler. He will be called, "Wonderful Counselor," "Mighty God," "Eternal Father," "Prince of Peace."
'êl, ale,strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity): - God(god), X goodly, X great, idol, might (-y one), power, strong. Compare names in “-el.”
He is great God Tit 2:13 as we wait for the blessed hope and the glorious appearance of our great God (theos) and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Θεός, theos,theh'-os a deity, especially the supreme Divinity; figuratively a magistrate; by Hebraism very: - X exceeding, God, god [-ly, -ward].
He is true God 1Jn 5:20 We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know the true God. We are in union with the one who is true, his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God (theos) and eternal life.
He is word and thus God • Joh 1:1-3 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God (theos), and the Word was God (theos). He existed in the beginning with God.(theos).
He is God over all Rom 9:5 To them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, Christ descended, who is God (theos) over all, blessed forever. Amen.
He is eternal God Heb 1:11 They will come to an end, but you (Jesus) will remain forever. They will all wear out like clothes.
Heb 1:12 You will roll them up like a robe, and they will be changed like clothes. But you (Jesus) remain the same, and your years will never end."
Isa 9:6 A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And he will be our ruler. He will be called, "Wonderful Counselor," "Mighty God," "Eternal Father," "Prince of Peace."
Heb 1:8 But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, (theos) is forever and ever, and the scepter of your kingdom is a righteous scepter.
Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords Rev 19:16 On his robe and his thigh he has a name written: "King of Kings and Lord of Lords."
Lord, Κύριος,kurios,koo'-ree-os From κῦροςkuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, that is, (as noun) controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title): - God, Lord, master, Sir.
He is my God and My Lord too Joh 20:28 Thomas answered him, saying "My Lord (kurios) and my God!" (theos)
Cults teaches that Moses was also called god (Exo 4:16 ,Exo7:1) and we are also called gods in Bible and they says Jesus is also god in that same sense. But we were never called mighty God, eternal God, great God, true God, God over all and Lord of Lords which only belongs to true God.
In the below verse Jesus says what is the difference between Him and us. In John 10, verse 35, Jesus said why we are called gods. We are called gods because we received the word of God and Jesus is the Word. In verse 36 He said what is the difference between us and Him. He said that you are from earth and I am from heaven.
Joh 10:34 Jesus replied to them, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, "You are gods"'? Joh 10:35 If he (God) called those to whom the word of God came 'gods' (and the Scripture cannot be set aside),
Joh 10:36 how can you say to the one whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
He is the Father • Isa 9:6 A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And he will be our ruler. He will be called, "Wonderful Counselor," "Mighty God," "Eternal Father," "Prince of Peace."
Heb 2:13-14 And again, "I will trust him." And again, "I am here with the children God has given me.“ Therefore, since the children have flesh and blood, he himself also shared the same things, so that by his death he might destroy the one who has the power of death (that is, the devil)
Joh 14:8-9 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will satisfy us." Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? The person who has seen me has seen the Father. So how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? Joh 10:30 I and the Father are one."
Jesus is worshipped like God Mat 2:11 After they went into the house and saw the child with his mother Mary, they fell down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure sacks and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
According to Bible, we are permitted to worship only God and cannot worship even angels or saints. But in Revelation, we can see that Jesus accept the worship but angels refuses worship. These men worshipped only Jesus not even His parents. In the Old Testament, any one receives worship is the appearance of God.
Rev 19:10 I bowed down at his feet to worship him, but he told me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold on to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, Rev 22:8-9 I, John, heard and saw these things. When I had heard and seen them, I bowed down to
worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing me these things. But he told me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow servant with you, your brothers the prophets, and those who keep the words in this book. Worship God!"
Rev 5:8 When the lamb had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders bowed down in front of him. Each held a harp and a gold bowl full of incense, the prayers of the saints. • In Acts 14, apostles refuses to accept the worship.
Baptizer of Holy Spirit Mat 3:11 I am baptizing you with water as a token of repentance, but the one who is coming after me is stronger than I am, and I am not worthy to carry his sandals. It is he who will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Who can send Holy Spirit except God. Can an angel dare to even think about that? An angel cannot even imagine such a thing.
Son of God Mat 8:29 Suddenly they screamed, "What do you want with us, Son of God? Did you come here to torture us before the proper time?" demons gives testimony that He is son of God. They never said that Jesus is angel Michael.
Mat 16:16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!" Disciples gives testimony that He is son of God
Luk 1:35 The angel answered her, "The Holy Spirit will come over you, and the power of the Most High will cover you. Therefore, the child will be holy and will be called the Son of God. An angel gives testimony that He is son of God.
Mat 3:16-17 When Jesus had been baptized, he immediately came up out of the water. Suddenly the heavens opened up for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him. Then a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love. I am pleased with him!“ God gives testimony that He is son of God.
Joh 20:17 Jesus told her, "Don't hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'" The above verse proves that there is a difference between our
relation and His relation with God. Even though He is called son of God, He is not a son like us. But He is the only begotten son.(John 3:16). That is why He differentiated between us and Him. We are adopted by God through Jesus. (Rom 8:15)
Jesus forgives sin as God forgives • Mat 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus, because he is the one who will save his people from their sins.“
Only God can save people from sins. An angel cannot do that. That is why whenever Jesus told that He forgave sins, Jews counted it as blasphemy.
Mat 9:2 All at once some people brought him a paralyzed man lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, "Be courageous, son! Your sins are forgiven." Jesus can forgive sins because He is incarnation of God.
All things created through Him, by Him Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Joh 1:1-3 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God.
Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. Jesus was word-word was God-everything created through him.
Joh 1:9-11 This was the true light that enlightens every person by his coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him. Yet the world did not recognize him. He came to his own creation, yet his own people did not receive him.
Col 1:15-19 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him.
He himself existed before all things, and by him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he himself might have first place in everything. For God was pleased to have all of his fullness live in him.
Heb 1:2 has in these last days spoken to us by a Son whom he appointed to be the heir of everything and through whom he also made the universe. Heb 1:10 And, "In the beginning, Lord, (Jesus) you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
He sustains creation Col 1:15-19 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible,
whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him. He himself existed before all things, and by him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning,
