THE SEAL JESUS OF NAZARETH AND THE DIVINITY: THE SEALMy spirit compels me to once again comment on the matter of the universal deity:It is true as Elihu in Job 37:23 posited that we can not comprehensively define the fullness ofGod; our little minds can not just grasp it. For instance, if God is a Spirit, how come He hasanother Person in Him called the Holy Spirit? Put another way; is there another person in Godcalled the Holy Spirit?Is it true as some early church fathers have submitted that there was a Kenosis that paved theway for the Incarnation? Philippians 2:5-11 (NIV) seems to agree. Personally, I strongly agree!No man has ever seen God. Even in the spiritual realm where some privileged prophets havebeen transported to; the God they see is the Likeness or Image of God! Ezekiel 1:26-28 clearlyshows this. Who Ezekiel called the Likeness of God’s glory, Isaiah was bold to proclaim as, theLORD of hosts (Isaiah 6:1-5). The cloud of glory that Moses and the nobles of Israel saw had thesame nature like the one Ezekiel and Isaiah saw. Hence the nobles were not wrong when theydeclared Him the God of Israel (Exodus 24:9-11, 15-18).Talking about the Shekinah Glory, Exodus 24:10 shows there is always one person carrying/ inthe Cloud of Glory. Right from the days of Moses, the House of Israel knows this Person to bethe God of Israel. Therefore when Jesus Christ repeatedly told them He was coming in theCloud of Glory, He was giving them a hint! Halleluyah! Please read Matt.16:27, Rev.1:7,Matt.24:30, Matt.26:64, Daniel 7:13, Luke 21:27, Rev. 14:14, etcStudying further, you can see that Proverbs 8:22, 1 John 1:1-2, John 1:1-14, John 17:5, John14:11, John 13:31, complement and explain themselves! Proverbs 8:31 proves that theWisdom speaking throughout Proverbs 8 is a Person, and we know who the Wisdom of God is!The deduction from the foregoing is: The Father has always been in the Son.In fact, John speaking later on in his epistle said, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life” (1 John 5:20)Did you hear that? Jesus Christ? The True God and eternal life?I am not surprised because Jesus Christ with His own mouth had already declared, “…I am theWay, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6)Lest I forget, Son of God means “God manifested as man”. Therefore, next time you see Son ofGod, don’t ask the meaning from an Englishman, ask a Jew!Yes, our minds may not absolutely comprehend God but neither has He left the vagaries of
man’s imagination to determine Him! Jesus Christ came to give us an understanding on thesubject of the true God and that understanding is this: The Father is a Spirit (John 4:24) but the Express Image of His Person is Jesus of Nazareth (Heb.1:3, John 14:7, Col. 1:15-17). Therefore, Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the LORD God of Israel (Isaiah 9:6-7, Psalm 45:6-7, Col. 2:9, 1 Tim. 3:16, Duet. 6:4, etc)Comparing Colossians 2:9 with john 6:27 and Deuteronomy 6:4, shows there is a Seal of Finalityon the issue of the divinity:The Father has decreed and sealed the only ONE born by THE VIRGIN BIRTH as the only God –the comprehensible God, the comprehensive God!Therefore Jesus of Nazareth is the LORD God of the universe. No contest.If you really want to worship the Father; if you really want to worship God, worship Jesus!However, if re-affirming Jesus Christ the God that He already is, makes you angry or uneasy,check yourself in light of 1 John 2:22-23, 1 John 5:11-12 and John 15:23, and decide whetheryou are ready to be responsible for your eternal death (John 3:18).The whole essence of religion is that you know and worship the God that made you; and fromknowing, learn to be like Him by daily obeying His commandments (Eph. 4:11-13).One of the reasons Jesus Christ is coming back to earth is to SHOW who indeed, is the true God(Jude 14-15, 1 Tim.6:14-16). If you are wise, start worshipping Him TODAY! Don’t wait till He re-appears: He may be a loving and patient Father; but He is still the Consuming Fire.Because we realize there still will be doubters even after this essay, we go forward as follows:In heaven, on earth and beneath the earth; now and for all times, whosoever is not Jesus ofNazareth but exalts himself to be the LORD God, is hereby arrested and sealed up in hell.As Moab, his priests and princes went into captivity for magnifying himself against the MostHigh (Jer. 48:7, 25, 26, 42), as the king of the Ammonites, his priests and princes went intocaptivity for taking the portion of the LORD God (Jer.49:3); so let it be executed against anyperson, spirit or human that has ever magnified himself against the LORD God of Israel; so let itbe executed on whosoever, human or spirit that has ever magnified himself against JesusChrist, belittled Him, spoken ill of Him, or whosoever has ever called himself LORD God insteadof giving that honour and glory to Jesus Christ. Jesus of Nazareth, we decree that you do this NOW, that men may know that you are YHWH, and that YOU ARE the LORD God over all the earth, over all the heavens and over every time and space.Send Lucifer, his priests and princes to hell TODAY; let his horn be broken and prove once andfor all, to all humanity but especially to the House of Israel, that you their God and Saviour.So let it be established. Halleluyah!
