  • The Bible is the most ancient and historically substantiated declaration anywhere about God. There is no greater authority from antiquity on this subject. The Bible is and should be the textbook of choice for anyone seeking to know God. All the world's religions claim to know Him. No religion, however, can prove their God more perfectly than the God of the Bible. Outside the context of the Bible, men have ascribed pathetic titles to God. 'Divine Providence', 'the Universal Consciousness', 'The Force', or 'the Man Upstairs' are dead give-aways that the speaker does not know Him at all. The True and Living God is Magnificent and Mighty, and we should go out of our way to discover Him. Make no mistake about it - we did not create Him. He created us! He is not made with hands. He is no idol, neither carved nor molten. Neither is He the figment of the human imagination. No mortal mind can possibly concoct all that He is. No philosophy nor ideology can ever substitute for His essence. Either He is self-existent and self-revealing or He is no God. The God of the Bible claims to be the Creator, and He claims to be the only one of His kind.

    As the SOLITARY Deity, He says He has no peers and no counselors. There are no others like Him. 'I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone,
    that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself' (Isaiah 44:24). Moses declared, 'the Lord our God is one Lord' (Deuteronomy 6:4). 'Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any' (Isaiah 44:8). 'I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God' (Isaiah 44:6). He is life. He is the Father of all life. He is the Father of all spirits. David asked, 'Who is this King of Glory?', then answered, 'The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of Glory' (Psalm 24:10). This Father Himself said, 'I am the Lord, your Holy one, the creator...your King' (Isaiah 43:15). We know these things because He revealed them to us by His Word. God made Himself known to men for all times with His word. It is because of His word that we know what we know about Him. The ancient men who were moved upon by His Holy Spirit spoke His words. He inspired what they wrote. Their explanations of Him were actually His explanations of Himself. So as we read His Word, we more accurately comprehend His true nature. Adam and Eve heard a 'voice' walking in the 'cool (Hebrew: wind) of the day' (Genesis 3:8). The invisible God manifest Himself to Adam and Eve as a voice in the wind. We have no evidence that the voice came from any particular body, but obviously came from an invisible source in mid-air, in the same manner that it would later be heard by the young child Samuel (I Samuel 3), by John the Baptist (Luke 3:22), and by Saul of Tarsus (Acts 9:4). The invisible Spirit (Father, Lord, and King) manifest Himself to Abram in a 'vision' in Genesis 15:1. He manifest Himself as a 'man' in Genesis 18:2, 22, 23, 33; but the 'man' was apparently an 'angel', according to Genesis 19:1, 10. Then God manifest Himself to Abimelech in a 'dream' in Genesis 20:3. Later, Jacob also 'saw' the Lord in a 'dream' (Genesis 28:12), standing at the top of a ladder that reached into heaven. God manifest Himself to Jacob as a 'man' in the wrestling match of Genesis 32:24,30, but the prophet Hosea identified that 'man' as an 'angel' (Hosea 12:3,4).
    God's Spirit again 'appeared' as an 'angel' to Moses in the burning bush of Exodus 3. The 'angel' said, 'I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'. Yet God is not a mere angel. He only occasionally appeared as one.
    In Exodus 19:10-19, God 'appeared' to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai. They did not actually 'see' Him however, because He 'descended upon it in fire, and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly'. There were 'thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount'.
    'Moses spake, and God answered Him by a voice', verse 19. Moses and seventy elders of Israel 'saw' an apparition of God, which must have been ghost-like: 'and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness' (Exodus 24:10). This was a translucent manifestation of an invisible Spirit, not a flesh and bone appearance, because 'God is not a man' according to Numbers 24:19 and Job 9:32, and Jesus testified that 'A spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye see me have' (Luke 24:39). 'A cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses', in Exodus 33:9. Then, 'the Lord spake with Moses face to face, as a man speaketh to a friend', in verse 11. Even though God was 'face to face' with Moses, Moses did not actually see a face. The only physical manifestation was a cloud, for in verse 20, God said, 'thou canst not see my face; for there shall no man see me, and live'.
    The cloud obviously did not satisfy Moses, so he said, 'Shew me thy glory', (Exodus 33:8) to which God replied, 'I will make all my goodness pass before thee' (verse 19). Was His glory or goodness a body? God agreed to put Moses in a 'clift of the rock' and 'cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away my hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen' (verse19). God's 'hand' would 'cover' Moses. Was God's hand six feet tall? And how could an invisible Spirit extend a 'hand'?
    Exodus 34:5 describes exactly what happened: 'And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed by before him'. The hand of the Lord must have been the cloud, because in fact, that is all Moses saw. Again, there was no actual view of God. We look painstakingly for a description of what Moses 'saw', but we find no evidence of any literal physical body of God at all. Only a cloud.
    But God had not promised to show him a body; only the 'back parts' (verse 23) of 'my goodness' (verse 19) and 'my glory' (verse 22).
    In one last Old Testament story, we read of the prophet Daniel's great vision of Daniel 7.
    He 'saw' the Father God, as the 'Ancient of Days', 'whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool' (Daniel 7:9). Then Daniel 'saw' that 'one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven and came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought him near before Him' (Daniel 7:13).
    Since this is a vision that Daniel is having, we must not assume that he was actually 'seeing' God in real time, but was viewing an allegorical representation while in a dream-like trance.
    Keep in mind that he just 'saw' a lion with eagle's wings, a bear with three ribs in its mouth, a leopard with four wings and four heads, and a fourth dreadful beast with iron teeth and ten horns. No one would construe these to be literal beasts, but figurative and illustrative of a series of world empires in prophetic roles.
    When we take into account that 'God is a spirit' (John 4:24), we must understand the Daniel's vision of the Ancient of Days was an allegory: figurative and illustrative of the God who is the 'Blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.' (I Timothy 6:15b, 16).
    In addition, the 'son of man' that Daniel 'saw' was prophetically illustrative, in the future tense, of the coming Messiah, who would not even be conceived in the womb of the virgin Mary for several hundred years to come. At the time Daniel 'saw' the 'son', the son of man did not even exist. The 'Only Begotten of the Father' would be made of a woman only 'when the fullness of time was come' (Galatians 4:4). Of the forty-four so-called 'appearances' of God in the Old Testament, no one in fact ever 'saw' God at all! The overwhelming evidence is that the Lord God, Father and Holy Spirit of the Old Testament did not actually have a body at all.
    What was 'seen' was a wide variety of manifestations of God. Voices, dreams, visions, fire, smoke, clouds, whirlwinds, earth-quakes, angels, men, and even ghostlike figures.
    None of these forms were actually the fullness of God in a bodily form. They were only temporary, nameless manifestations of the invisible, omnipresent, holy Spirit who calls Himself our Father. Jesus verified that God was and is invisible by telling the Pharisees, 'Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape' (John 5:37). John declared, 'No man hath seen God at any time' (John 1:18). It's impossible to believe anyone truly 'saw' God, when we are told specifically and repeatedly that God simply can't be seen. He's invisible! That brings us to the magnificent miracle that was manifest at the Birth of Jesus Christ.
    It was that tiny baby in a Bethlehem stable that Isaiah had referred to when he wrote , 'The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man' (Isaiah 42:13). Jesus Christ was the embodiment of all God had ever said about Himself. 'The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us' (John 1:14). God chose not to remain invisible, but to become visible!
    The invisible God had manifest Himself in many forms in the Old Testament, but the highest revelation of God in the Old Testament had been by His Word. It was the Word of God spoken and written by holy men and prophets that was the most consistent and reliable revelation of the invisible God to the Old Testament world. The invisible Spirit had planned all along to take on a human form. He planned to come into the world as a man.
    '...The Only Begotten Son... he hath declared Him' (John 1:18). Webster's Dictionary defines the word 'declare' as meaning 'to show or reveal'. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man shows and reveals the invisible God. Philip asked Jesus to 'show us the Father'. Jesus replied, 'Have I been so long time with you and hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father' (John 14:8, 9).
    Unfortunately, the human race has not begun to comprehend the overwhelming reality of our Father's appearance nearly 2000 years ago. The excitement of it all has been lost in the confusion of who Jesus Christ really is. John 1:10 tells us that 'He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew him not'. That could only refer to the Father God. Most people do not realize that Jesus Christ was only literal incarnation of the one Holy Spirit - our Father. Paul communicated the mystery to Timothy: 'God was manifest in the flesh' (I Timothy 3:16), and to the Colossians, 'In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead (Greek: Deity) bodily' (Colossians 2:9).
    If the concept seems different from modern teachings, remember John's observation that even the Jews refused to believe that their Father was in this man: 'He came unto His own, and His own received Him not' (John 1:11). Is it possible that the same God who was always everywhere, is now somewhere in particular? Isaiah prophesied that His name would be 'Emmanuel', which means 'God with us' (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). Whereas God, in the Old Testament, had been revealed through His spoken and written Word, God, in the New Testament, is revealed in flesh. Hebrews 1:1 says that He 'spake in times past unto the fathers by the prophets' but verse 2 says that 'in these last days He hath spoken unto us by His Son' and verse 3 tells us that the Son is 'the brightness of His glory, and the express image of his person'. The Corinthian church was taught that Christ is 'the image of God' (II Corinthian 4:4). The Colossian church was taught that the Son is 'the image of the invisible God' (Colossians 1:15). 'It pleased the Father that in him (the Son) should all (the Father's) fullness dwell' (Colossians 1:19). That is why John said 'the Word was made flesh'.
    Jesus Christ is Jehovah Savior come in the flesh. In fact, the very meaning of the name 'Jesus' is 'Jehovah Savior'. Jesus explained, 'I am come in my Father's name' (John 5:43).
    Jesus is not a clone of God the Father. He's not a duplicate deity. He's not Jehovah, Jr..He
    He's not co-equal and co-eternal with the Father. He IS the Father (the eternal Spirit) manifest in the Son (the man)!
    Jesus, as a man, insisted that He was NOT equal with the Father when he said, 'My Father is greater than I' in I John 14:28. That confirms the Father's oath in Isaiah 42:8b, 'My Glory will I not give to another'. Jesus Christ is not the second member of the Godhead. He is the man in whom the Father dwelt. God the Father never invented or created a God the Son.
    The Son of God was 'made of a woman', (Galatians 4:4), and was 'conceived...of the Holy Ghost' (Matthew 1:20). That shows the Holy Ghost is actually the Father, since John said the Son of Man is the 'only begotten of the Father' (John 1:14).
    The human body of Jesus was not only conceived by his Holy Spirit Father, but was a visible shell which actually housed the Father. 'God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself'(2 Corinthians 5:19). He was the fullness of God bodily. Remember that Moses had desired to see the glory of God's face , but it was impossible in Old Testament times. However, 2500 years later he was resurrected from the dead to see 'the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ' (II Corinthians 4:6, see also Mark 9:4).
    Isaiah 9:6 said, '...His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince Of Peace.'

Jesus Christ Is God

  1. 1. JESUS CHRIST<br />I AM THAT I AM<br />JESUS CHRIST IS GOD<br />A biblical proof that JESUS CHRIST <br />is the ONE TRUE GOD<br />
  2. 2. JESUS IS GOD<br /> “For in him dwelleth all the fulnessof the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9)<br />
  3. 3. The Old Testament Testifies that <br />Jesus Is God<br />
  4. 4. ISAIAH 9:6<br /> 1. Isaiah 9:6 is one of the most powerful proofs that Jesus is God: “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.”<br />
  5. 5. MANIFESTATION<br /> The terms child and son refer to the Incarnation or manifestation of “The mighty God” and “The everlasting Father.”<br />
  6. 6. 2. Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would be called Immanuel, that is, God with us (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:22-23).<br />
  7. 7. 3. Isaiah described the Messiah as both a branch out of Jesse (the father of David) and as the root of Jesse (Isaiah 11:1, 10; see also Revelation 22:16). <br />According to the flesh He was a descendant (branch) of Jesse and David, but according to His Spirit He was their Creator and source of life (root).<br />
  8. 8. Jesus used this concept to confound the Pharisees when He quoted Psalm 110:1 and asked, in essence, “How could David call the Messiah Lord when the Messiah was to be the son (descendant) of David?” (Matthew 22:41-46).<br />
  9. 9. 4. Isaiah 35:4-6 shows that Jesus is God: “Behold, your God . . . he will come and save you.” This passage goes on to say that when God comes the eyes of the blind would be opened, the ears of the deaf would be unstopped, the lame would leap, and the tongue of the dumb would speak. <br />Jesus applied this passage of Scripture to Himself (Luke 7:22) and, of course, His ministry did produce all of these things.<br />
  10. 10. 5. Isaiah 40:3 declares that one would cry in the wilderness, “Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” John the Baptist fulfilled this prophecy when he prepared the way for Jesus (Matthew 3:3); so Jesus is the LORD (Jehovah) and our God.<br />
  11. 11. 6. Micah 5:2 proves that the Messiah is God.<br />
  12. 12. “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah . . . 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.”<br />Thus the Old Testament clearly states that the Messiah and Savior to come would be God Himself.<br />
  13. 13. The New Testament Proclaims that Jesus Is God<br />
  14. 14. 1. Thomas confessed Jesus as both Lord and God (John 20:28).<br />
  15. 15. 2. According to Acts 20:28, the church was purchased with God’s own blood, namely the blood of Jesus.<br />
  16. 16. 3. Paul described Jesus as “the great God and our SaviourJesus Christ” (Titus 2:13; NIV has “our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ”).<br />
  17. 17. 4. Peter described Him as “God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (II Peter 1:1)“our God and Savior Jesus Christ”).<br />
  18. 18. 5. Our bodies are the temples of God (I Corinthians 3:16-17), yet we know Christ dwells in our hearts (Ephesians 3:17).<br />
  19. 19. 6. The Book of Colossians strongly emphasizes the deity of Christ. “For in him dwelleth all the fulnessof the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9; see also 1:19). According to these verses of Scripture, Jesus is not just a part of God, but all of God is resident in Him.<br />
  20. 20. If there were several persons in the Godhead, according to Colossians 2:9 they would all be resident in the bodily form of Jesus. We are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10).<br />
  21. 21. Whatever we need from God we can find in Jesus Christ alone. (For further discussion of Colossians 2:9 and other proofs of Christ’s deity in Colossians, see Chapter 9.) <br />We conclude that the New Testament testifies to the full deity of Jesus Christ.<br />
  22. 22. God Was Manifest In The Flesh As Jesus<br />
  23. 23. MANIFESTATIONS<br />1. “God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (I Timothy 3:16; see verse 15 for further confirmation that God is the subject of verse 16). <br />
  24. 24. God was manifest (made visible) in flesh; God was justified (shown to be right) in the Spirit; God was seen of angels; God was believed on in the world; and God was received up into glory. How and when did all of this happen? In Jesus Christ.<br />
  25. 25. 2. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . And the Word was made flesh. . .” (John 1:1, 14). Literally, the Word (God) was tabernacled or tented in flesh. When did God tabernacle or robe Himself in flesh? <br />
  26. 26. In Jesus Christ. <br />Both verses of Scripture prove that Jesus is God—that He is God manifest (revealed, made known, made evident, displayed, shown) in flesh.<br />
  27. 27. JOHN 4:24<br />God is a Spirit—without flesh and blood and invisible to man. <br />In order to make Himself visible to man and in order to shed innocent blood for our sins, He had to put on flesh.<br />
  28. 28. Jesus is not another God or a part of God, but He is the God of the Old Testament robed in flesh. He is the Father;<br />He is Jehovah who came in flesh to bridge the gap between man and God that man’s sin had created. <br />He put on flesh as a man puts on a coat.<br />
  29. 29. Many verses of Scripture declare Jesus Christ to be the God of the Old Testament robed in flesh for the purpose of self-revelation and reconciliation.<br />
  30. 30. 3. “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself” (II Corinthians 5:19).<br />4. “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [spoken, revealed] him” (John 1:18).<br />
  31. 31. 5. “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spakein time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son . . . the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person. . .” (Hebrews 1:1-3).<br />
  32. 32. 6. Jesus is “the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15; II Corinthians 4:4).<br />
  33. 33. 7. He is God veiled in flesh (Hebrews 10:20).<br />As Abraham prophesied, probably without understanding the full meaning of his own words, “God will provide himself a lamb” (Genesis 22:8). <br />
  34. 34. God indeed provided a body for Himself: “Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me” (Hebrews 10:5).<br />
  35. 35. 8. Jesus was the builder of the house (God the Father and Creator) and also a son over his own house (Hebrews 3:3-6).<br /> 9. He came to His own creation and to His own chosen people, but they did not recognize Him or receive Him (John 1:10-11).<br />
  36. 36. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!<br />GOD BLESS YOU ALL!<br />
