Jesus is the Son of of God

Mr Alfred Andara Songsore shares with us this piece of religious literature worth reading.

JESUS IS GOD 

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the  CounsellorThe mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Philippians 2:5  Have this mind among yourselves, which was in Christ Jesus,who, though He was in the form of God did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

John 5:18, ” . . . making Himself equal with God.”

Matthew 2:11 and going into the house they saw the child with Mary His Mother, and they fell down and worshipped Him.

Humility :

Mark 1:24

Luke 4:34-“Ah! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are,the Holy One of God.”

John 6: 69

 

Some qualities of God the Father/ Some qualities of God the Son

Isaiah 26:4 Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord God is an EVERLASTING ROCK./Gen 49:24 -yet His bow remained unmoved, His arms were made agile by the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob 2 Samuel 23:3- The God of Israel has spoken, the Rock of Israel has said to me:…./1 Corinthians 10:3 &4- and all ate the same supernatural food and all drank the same supernatural drink. For they drank from the supernatural Rock which followed them, and the Rock was Christ

Deut. 32: 4 & 15
  1. The Rock, his work is perfect;for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is He. 15.But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked; you waxed fat, you grew thick, you became sleek; then he forsook God who made him, and scoffed at the Rock of his salvation.

 

*1 Peter 1:16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

Leviticus 20:26 You are to be holy to me because I, the LORD

*Matthew 5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

*“God is light and in Him there is no darkness.” (1 John 1:5) ..God is light….

 

 

*John 8: 12 12Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” 13So the Pharisees said to Him, “You are testifying about Yourself; Your testimony is not true.”…

*Psalm 116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; our God is merciful/ Jesus is Merciful-Father forgive them for they know not what they do.

*God is Love

Further Biblical Attestations

Rev.1:5-8 – and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the ruler of kings and earth.

To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom, priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, every one who pierced Him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of Him. Even so. Amen. 8.” I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

 

  1. Jesusis the image of the invisible God-Colossians 1:15He is the image of the invisible God, the first-bornof all creation; for in Him all things were created. ……19 For in Him all the fulness of God dwell, and through Him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

 

Rev 21: 5-6 – And he who sat upon the throne said, ” Behold, I make all things new.” Also He said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. …

  1. Wisdom and Knowledge of God- Colossians:  2:3-4 For I want you to know greatly I strive for you, and for those at La-odicea, and for all who have not seen my face, that their hearts may be encouraged as they are knit together in love, to have all the riches of assured understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, of Christ, in whom are hiddenall the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with beguiling speech.

 

  1. Philip asks Jesus to show us the Father (context)-

 

John 14: 8-11    ..8. Philip said to Him, ” Lord show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied.” 9. “Jesus said to him. “Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know MePhilip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father? 10. Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does His works.11.Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.  {Jesus’ works are also a manifestation of His Divinity}

 

Jesus then shows us what is greater work:

John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 17:19 And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.

John 10:11   11 I Am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep..

Mark 10:18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but God alone. {Theologically speaking-Jesus is man only for our sake but His True nature is bearing the very stamp of God (Hebrews 1:3), even as He is with us. So all other men need to work out their salvation with fear and trembling. Jesus on the contrary, can tell God that He has done the work as given and even ask God to glorify Him for that is His true nature to have the glory of God since He has finished glorifying God on earth.}

Why No man is Good 

Romans 3:10 -14 as it is written: ‘ None is righteous, no one; no one understands, no one seeks for God. 12. All have turned aside, together they have gone wrong;

no one does good, not even one.13.”Their throat is an open grave,

they us their tongues to deceive.” etc

 

  1. I am the resurrection and the life-

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life

 

  1. I have the power to lay it down and I have the power to take it back-

John 10:18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own

 

  1. Transfiguration depicting His (Jesus) Glory Also – Matt 17: 2 (Glory of God)-

John 8:54

-Jesus answered, If I glorify Myself, my glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say that He is your God. ( Isaiah 42:8– I AM the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, …./Ephesians 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. Hebrews 1:3 He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of His nature, upholding the universe by His word of Power……..) And also-Pr 8:23

55-But you have not known Him, I know Him. If I said, I do not know Him, I should be a liar like you; but I do know Him and I keep His Word. (On the contrary human beings by nature are liars-Psalm 116 :11-..all men are liars. God’s Nature is Truth so Jesus cannot be like us in lies)

John 8:56 & 58- 56-Your father Abraham rejoiced that he was to see my day; he saw it and was glad.”

58: Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.
