Jesus Is God

I just love the verse in my sidebar today. Isaiah was a prophet, and in this verse he was telling of the coming of Jesus. Isaiah began his ministry in 740 B.C.

There are many religions of the world that reject the idea of Jesus being God. To me, this verse says it all (emphasis added by me):

"The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. 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. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth even for ever. " Isaiah 9 : 2, 6-7

By the way....did you know that every single prophesy (telling of what the future holds) came true? Every one, with 100% accuracy. It's one of the things that convinced me that the Bible is God's Word.

Are you interested in more prophecies fulfilled by Jesus? Check THIS out. Or THIS. Or you can find more HERE, HERE, and HERE. And if you'd like something you can hold in your hand, give THIS a look.

Update: Jesus Is God, Part II

Well, that's kind of an overly-inclusive statement, that all the prophecies of the Bible came true, because some of them haven't; they are yet-future. Those that deal with Christ's return, the Day of the Lord, etc., have not yet been fulfilled. And some of those that referred to Messiah's first coming were not even recognized to be about the Messiah until Jesus came and the New Testament writers, with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, revealed them to be Messianic.

Good point, Kimberly. The book of Revelation (and some other NT books) tell of "end times", and those times have obviously not yet been completed.

Prophesy is a bit of a tough thing, because the writers are writing about something that hasn't happened yet, and the language isn't always available to clearly describe what is to come. For would someone who lived a thousand years ago write about cell phones, the internet, air travel, space travel, nuclear warfare, etc?

It takes study and help from the Holy Spirit (as you mentioned) to understand how things fit together.

Thanks for the clarification. I do appreciate your comment. :)

Jesus is God's Son. The notion that Jesus is God is wrapped up in the doctrine of the trinity, which stems from the Nicean Council.

Please seek understanding on this through prayer and the Scriptures. Many are deceived. The doctrine of the trinity is a man-made doctrine, by some men who weren't holy back in the days of the Roman Empire....

To understand all this, I had to really search the Scriptures and seek God's wisdom. Little by little, by His Grace, I've been able to grasp how cleverly the 'trinity' was woven into our Christian Church.

It was prophesied that many would come in His name, etc...and twist the message....

Hi Daquiri - I got your comment. I leave on holiday soon (for 6 wks) so will respond here as best I can for the moment;).

This is not an 'easy' topic to explore, as I discovered when I first began to question certain doctrines I was raised to believe without question.

Let me first state that first and foremost I'm a Christian. I do not belong to any denomination, although I was raised Baptist, and have attended many different churches of various denominations over the years. I believe in one God, Almighty - the Creator of Heaven and Earth. He is the Father of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate penalty for our sins.

We are cautioned to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12). And that's just what I began to do when the Lord pulled this prodigal daughter close to Him again, a few years ago.

Nowhere in the Scriptures does it say anything about a 'triune' Godhead. Not one scripture. Truine is polytheism. (please look things up as you go, and pray) It is clearly stated throughout Scripture (OT & NT) that there is *only* one God - our Heavenly Father. And obviously, very serious penalties for those who mislead others with man-made false doctrines (Jesus and his apostles warned us repeatedly about false doctrine). I proceed with this in mind and pray the Lord keeps me on track whenever He leads me to discuss this topic.

There are a few scriptures that 'trinitarians' say 'support' their doctrine. However, delving deeply, and by that I mean, through prayer/supplication and studying the Scripture whilst in the Spirit, the Lord will show clearly that He is one God, who sent his Son, Jesus to die for our sins. He is not a God of confusion (1Cor 14:33).

Satan is, though.

The scripture where Jesus says, "I and the Father are one" is often cited by 'trinitarians' to demonstrate that Jesus and God are 'one'. However, when looking at the context AND delving into the original language - it becomes clear that Jesus was saying He and the Father were of one purpose - completely on the same page with each other in carrying out God's plans for mankind. (I use the NASB with Strong's Concordance when I'm confused about a Scriptural meaning, along with prayer and supplication.)

Here is an article about the history of the 'trinity' doctrine.

If you have your Bible handy, and are prepared to look things up (to verify, etc), then this is a good place to begin learning about the history of how the doctrine came into being in the 1st century. The trinity doctrine didn't even exist before 180AD. That alone made the hair stand up on the back of my neck and propelled me to find out WHY Jesus didn't teach this doctrine --- if it was indeed true.

There is an index on the same website - that lists other articles around the trinity doctrine. Very informative and well researched.
Again, have you own Bible handy, so you can test things, along with prayer and supplication.

I'm not proud to admit that I studied Kabbalah at one time. Having said that, I believe the Lord allowed me to stray for a reason, and what I've discovered (spiritually) subsequently has been mind blowing.

Anyway, the articles I've linked to will help show why I know that Jesus is not God.

If you wish to discuss further, later, I'll be back in mid August:).

Have a good summer.
God bless - xo
