Calvary Bible Study
Jesus Christ Is God.
Do you sincerely want to know the Truth? Will you believe who the scriptures say Jesus is?
Before we start, why is it important that he is God?
Let us see what the Bible says: 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." That scripture says you will die in your sins if you do NOT believe Jesus is the “I AM”. This is more important than who you fellowship with, this is your eternal salvation, a life with Christ, and whether you go to hell or heaven.
But who is the “I am”?
Reason 1: Jesus is the I AM
In Exodus 3:13-14 God says to Moses that his name is I am. “I AM that I AM”
Where else does it claim that Jesus is the “I AM”?
In John 8:58 Jesus says “Before Abraham was I am”
The words “I AM” in Greek is shown at the top right corner of this page. This is pronounced “ego eimi”.
GOD’s name = I AM.
JESUS’s name = I AM
Exodus 3:14 John 8:24,58
Therefore, JESUS = GOD. Therefore you must believe that Jesus is GOD, the I AM or you will die in your sins.
There are very few reasons why the Jews would want to punish Jesus by stoning. They wanted to stone Him for blaspheming God.
2nd reason: Jesus accepts worship.
In Hebrews 1:6 it says: "Let all the angels of God worship him (Jesus)"
The Greek word for worship in Hebrews 1:6 is pronounced “proskuneo”
The King James Version (KJV) translates this word correctly as worship.
If Jesus is worshipped, and he accepts it, this makes him GOD.
3rd reason: Jesus tells us to honour him and the God the Father equally
The Bible says in John 5:23 it says “That all men should honour the Son even as they honour the Father.”
Do you pray to, love, obey the Father? Do you likewise with the Son?
Do you honour the Father as God? Should not you then also honour the Son equally as God?
4th reason: Jesus shares his Name with God the Father and Holy Spirit
In Matthew 28:19, the Bible says: "baptising them in the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"
This Bible verse uses the word “NAME” not “names”. This shows that it is shared with the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Ghost. This shows that Jesus Christ is God, just like how the Father is God.
5th reason: The Greek word SON for Jesus means the “same nature as”. There are 2 greek words translated to the English word “Son”. These are:
1) TEKNON (Son) = little boy, offspring
derived from is never used of Jesus
2) UIOS (Son) = same nature as (hooios)
ALWAYS USED OF JESUS
Therefore, when it calls Jesus:
Son of God: it means he is the same nature as God.
Son of Man: it means he is the same nature as Man .
This shows that Jesus is 100% God, and 100% man at the same time.
6th reason: Jesus is from everlasting
Micah 5:2 “But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting”
Jesus is from everlasting, therefore he wasn’t created, therefore he’s God.
The satanic NWT translates “everlasting” to the word “origin”. What is your origin? That would also be your birth date. But Jesus Christ is from everlasting … who else is from everlasting other than God?
7th reason: God the Father calls Jesus “O God”
In Hebrews 1:8, the Bible says: To the Son he says "Thy throne O God"
God the Father calls the Son (Jesus Christ) "O God"
8th reason: There is no Saviour other than Jehovah
The Bible says in Isaiah 43:11: “I, even I, am the LORD (Jehovah); and beside me there is no saviour.
Therefore Jehovah = ONLY SAVIOUR.
2nd Peter 1:11 says “For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”
Jehovah = ONLY SAVIOUR
Jesus Christ = SAVIOUR
Therefore, Jesus Christ is Jehovah
You have just read 8 reasons why JESUS IS GOD.
We have plenty more reasons.
But, what must you believe so that you don’t die in your sins?
You must accept that Jesus is God the Son.
Next, you must realize that you can’t earn your way to heaven with good works:
“By grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works lest
any man should boast” Ephesians 2:8,9
This is why he died for you. God bled to death on the cross with nails piercing his hands and his feet, for
6 hours, so that your sins could be paid for by the blood of God, Jesus Christ. Your sins are covered by
the blood of Jesus Christ and remain on the cross.
What should you do?
The Bible says in Romans 10:9,10:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him
from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.”
Only when you know who he is, then you can ask him by prayer:
to be your LORD (GOD) and SAVIOUR
to forgive you of your sins
give you the GIFT of eternal life.
Turn from your sins (Repent) and Pray and Ask him to be your LORD (GOD) and SAVIOUR today.
If you prayed from your heart, and asked him with your mouth, you are now saved from your sins.
