About Jesus. Documents. End of Days. THE COMING GLOBAL POLICE STATE! WHY ARE WE STILL HERE LORD? The First Resurrection Rapture! The Tribulation of the Saints; The Church After Rev ; The Mark of the Beast ; How to become Born Again; How Jesus is God. God, Trinity, and Humanity Explained; God Exists as ONE Person! Messianic Theology. 1st Peter ,19 clearly states that Jesus is the Lamb of God which shed His blood for our sins. Hence, Jesus is Almighty God! ROMANS. Paul says so, The Resurrection of Jesus Christ proves His Deity (Romans ) Nature says so, giving understanding and clarity. Jesus taught that he is God in the way the Jews understood God and the way the Hebrew Scriptures portrayed God, not in the way the New Age movement understands God. Neither Jesus nor his audience had been weaned on Star Wars, and so when they spoke of God, they were not speaking of .
On the contrary, he commended him! Jesus frequently referred to "My Father," and his hearers got the full impact of his words. We are told, "The Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
Jesus asked them which of his miracles caused them to want to kill him. They replied, "We are not stoning you for any of these but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God. Jesus clearly claimed powers which only God has. One time Jesus said to a man who was paralyzed, "Son, your sins are forgiven you.
He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone? The high priest rendered the verdict. So close was Jesus' connection with God that he equated a person's attitude to himself with the person's attitude toward God.
Thus, to know him was to know God. Maybe Jesus lied when he said he was God. Perhaps he knew he was not God, but deliberately deceived his hearers to give authority to his teaching. But there is a problem with this reasoning. Even those who deny his deity will say that they think Jesus was a great moral teacher. They fail to realize that Jesus could hardly be a great moral teacher if, on the most crucial point of his teaching -- his identity -- he was a deliberate liar.
Another possibility is that Jesus was sincere but self-deceived. We have a name for a person today who thinks he is God.
Mentally disabled. But as we look at the life of Christ, we see no evidence of the abnormality and imbalance we find in a mentally ill person. Rather, we Jesus Is God (Radio Edit) - Scarecrow & Tinmen - Jesus Is God / God Is Good (CD) the greatest composure under pressure. Were he to return, he would immediately repudiate them. However this does not hold up. Modern archeology verifies that four biographies of Christ were written within the lifetime of people who saw, heard and followed Jesus.
These gospel accounts contained specific facts and descriptions confirmed by those who were eyewitnesses of Jesus. The late William F. Albright, a world-famous archaeologist with Johns Hopkins University, said there is no reason to believe that any of the Gospel were written later than A.
The early writing of the Gospels by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, is why they gained such circulation and impact. Jesus was not a liar, or mentally disabled, or manufactured apart from historical reality. The only other alternative is that Jesus was being consciously truthful when he said he was God. Anyone can make claims. There have been others who have claimed to Jesus Is God (Radio Edit) - Scarecrow & Tinmen - Jesus Is God / God Is Good (CD) God. I could claim to be God, and you could claim to be God, but the question all of us must answer is, "What credentials do we bring to prove our claim?
It probably wouldn't take too much more to dispose of yours. But when it comes to Jesus of Nazareth, it's not so Jesus Is God (Radio Edit) - Scarecrow & Tinmen - Jesus Is God / God Is Good (CD). He had the credentials to back up his Jesus Is God (Radio Edit) - Scarecrow & Tinmen - Jesus Is God / God Is Good (CD). He said, "Even though you do not believe me, believe the evidence of the miracles, that you may learn and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father.
His moral character aligned with his claims. The quality of his life was such that he was able to challenge his enemies with the question, "Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? We read of Jesus being tempted by Satan, but we never hear of a confession of sin on his part. He never asked for forgiveness, though he told his followers to do so. This lack of any sense of moral failure on Jesus' part is astonishing in view of the fact that it is completely contrary to the experience of the saints and mystics throughout the ages.
The closer men and women draw to God, the more overwhelmed they are with their own failure, corruption, and shortcomings.
The closer one is to a shining light, the more he realizes his need of a bath. It is also striking that John, Paul, and Peter, all of whom were trained from earliest childhood to believe in the universality of sin, all spoke of the sinlessness of Christ: "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth. Even Pilate, who sentenced Jesus to death, asked, "What evil has he done?
Jesus constantly demonstrated both his power and compassion, Jesus Is God (Radio Edit) - Scarecrow & Tinmen - Jesus Is God / God Is Good (CD). He made the lame to walk, the blind to see, and healed those with diseases.
For example, a man who had been blind from birth was known by everyone as the familiar beggar who sat outside the temple. After Jesus healed him, the religious authorities interrogated the beggar about Jesus. The man replied, "One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see! Jesus also demonstrated a supernatural power over nature itself. He commanded a raging storm of high wind and waves on the Sea of Galilee to be calm.
Those in the boat were awestruck, asking, "Who is this? Even the wind and waves obey him! He fed a massive crowd of 5, people, starting with five loaves of bread and two fish. He gave a grieving widow back her only son by raising him from the dead. Lazarus, a friend of Jesus' died and had been buried in a tomb for four days already.
Yet Jesus said, "Lazarus, come forth! It is most significant that his enemies did not deny this miracle. Rather, they decided to kill Jesus. Jesus' supreme evidence of deity was his own resurrection from the dead. Five times in the course of his life, Jesus clearly predicted he would die, and in what specific way he would be killed, and that three days later, after being buried, he would rise from the dead. Surely this was the great test. The early creeds of the church unequivocally teach that Jesus was not created but that He is an eternally divine Person, the Son of God.
Muslims teach that Jesus was a virgin-born human prophet, but came into existence just like everyone else. Mormonswho adhere to a modern-day form of Arianismbelieve that Jesus had a beginning, just as God the Father had a beginning. Is Jesus a creature, and thus part of the created order, or is He, along with the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Creator of all created things?
During His public ministry, Jesus continually assumed for Himself divine prerogatives. He continually exercised rights that would never be appropriate for a created being. Jesus accepted the worship of others Matthew —33 and described a future time when He will sit in judgment over all nations Matthew — Living on the Edge exists to help Christians live like Christians.

If God is a Trinity and we say Jesus is God, then we are saying that Jesus is a Trinity. But that is not true. So in one sense, the term "God" can be used to designate the totality of God as a Trinity, and in another sense, it deals with the divine nature. The correct answer is that Jesus is both divine and human. Believing Jesus is God doesn’t mean there are multiple gods. Followers of Jesus believe in one God in three persons. As Billy Graham once explained, “God has shown Himself to us in three ways—as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each has a separate function—and yet they are all united as one God. “Let me illustrate it this way. The answer, I submit, is that Jesus was referring to the character of God the Father. Jesus embodied the character of God that is reflected in John’s famous proclamation, “God is love [agape]” (I Jn , cf. 16). According to this passage, God is not defined as absolute power, complete knowledge, or .
