This aspect of the doctrine of Christ is most attacked by the heretical doctrines. As a general rule, every apostate doctrine establishes as its basic disclosure that Jesus is not God. They recognize a prophetic aspect, and even a heavenly aspect, but deny its divine nature and essence. The reason is obvious; all heretical doctrine operates under the demonic intention.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. John 1:1, 12:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: Philippians 2:5, 6
Jesus is God. Let’s see the testimony of Jesus himself,
I and my Father are one. … 36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? … 38But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. John 10:30-38
Therefore, only those who recognize, accept and submit to the doctrine of Christ are the only ones, who can overcome the world and are not subject to Satan,
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? … 20 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. 1st. John 5:5
The name of Jesus is written, and described, throughout the Old Testament.
In the scriptures of the Mosaic Law, the name of Jesus is presented in coded form. We see it in the revelation that Moses receives from God around his name.
And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Exodus 3:15
God reveals Himself to Moses as, I am that I am (אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה), and as, The LORD (יְהוָה).
The name of the Messiah appears in the conjugation of both names. If we join both names, we have: Jehovah, I am that I am.
In that union of names appears the name of Jesus in codified form, let’s see it. Observe, the names of Joshua and Jesus are written as follows:
Let us return again to the image of the union of the names, with which the Lord reveals himself to Moses,
אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה יְהוָה Jehovah I am that I am
The name of Jesus is integrated into the words of the name with which God revealed himself to Moses.
The name of Jesus is presented in the book of Psalms in a prophetic way. Let’s review, for example, Psalm 20, verses 5 and 6.
We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions. 6Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
In verse 5, the term, salvation; and in verse 6, saving, they are written in Hebrew in the following way, respectively:
The root of both words is the same: ישׁועת
Now, remember how the names of Joshua and Jesus are written.
If we compare the terms of salvation in Psalm 20 that we have highlighted and compare them with the structure of the names of Joshua and Jesus, we will see that the terms are the same.
Now, let’s change the word salvation, for its prophetic meaning, Jesus; and let us also change the name by which the Lord revealed himself to Moses, and we will read,
5We will rejoice in thy Jesus, and in the name of our I am that I am we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions. 6Now know I that the LORD Jesus his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the Jesus strength of his right hand.
As we see, the name of Jesus was prophesied by David in his psalms, and confirmed by the angels who proclaimed him from heaven the night when Jesus was born.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
Another example is Psalm 3,
Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah. Psalm 3:8
Let’s change the word salvation by its meaning, and we have,
Jesus belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah. Psalm 3:8
Compare the text of these two psalms with what the apostle Paul wrote in his epistle to the Ephesians:
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Ephesians 1:19
The apostle Paul is writing in the same terms as the psalmist. The apostle is speaking about the name of God. All this means that David was prophesying about the arrival of who would establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
So, the name of Jesus comes from the name of God that is revealed to Moses, which is the evidence that Jesus is God.
10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Juan 14:10, 11
 Exodus 3:14
 Exodus 3:15
2 thoughts on “The doctrine of Christ: Jesus is God.”
It has happened to you as the same Jesus said, “You are completely wrong! You don’t know what the Scriptures teach. And you don’t know anything about the power of God” (Matthew 22:29).
Have you not read what Jesus said to Nicodemus, “And no one went up to heaven, but he who came down from heaven, the Son of man, who is in heaven”? (John 3:13) The apostle Peter also established it, when he said: “David didn’t go up to heaven. So he wasn’t talking about himself when he said, The Lord told my Lord to sit at his right side,” (Acts 2:34). The testimony of men in white robes, on the Mount of Olives, “They said, “Why are you men from Galilee standing here and looking up into the sky? Jesus has been taken to heaven. But he will come back in the same way that you have seen him go.” (Acts 1:11)
You say, “God a great liar and a fraud”, Have you not read in the Scriptures the times it is said, “so that what was said may come true”?
Belgian Biblestudents, very well for your interest in studying the Scriptures, but do not study it rationally, nor based on human logic.
“If you do not believe when I talk to you about things on earth, how can you possibly believe if I talk to you about things in heaven?”
Listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the only true God! Deuteronomy 6:4
But Christ offered himself as a sacrifice that is good forever. Now he is sitting at God’s right side, Hebrew 10:12
Jesus came from heaven because he was placed in the womb of a young woman by the Power of God (the Holy Spirit)
We follow the Scriptures and keep to the Biblical doctrine, but not human doctrine.
We do not call God a liar, just the opposite, so we do believe what God says and said. As such we do believe Jesus to be the one Who God declared Jesus to be His son and not Him, like you believe. In Scriptures is also said Jesus is the sent one from God.Nowhere shall you find it is God Who came down to earth in the form of man to fake His temptation or His death (because God cannot be tempted and can not die according to the Scriptures Which also tells us that man can do nothing to God. Jesus was tempted more than once and got even killed by men. According to Scriptures Jesus was also without fault or sin and as such would never have lied. Jesus tells us he cann’t do anything without God Who is greater than him. We (opposite what you think) believe God and Jesus both told always the truth. We said it was you with your view of taking Jesus to be God who made of him and God persons who did not tell the truth. We believe the Bible is the unfallible Word of the All Knowing and Most Mighty God, though Jesus had to learn everything and did not know a lot of things, evne not when he would be coming back or who would be seated next to him. If Jesus is God he would know all thos things and then he would be very cruel to hide such important thing for us. Also would he be very cruel after faking his death (because God can not die) to still have us suffering for so many ages whilst we would so called be saved. His charade could also not make any sense, because He then could have arranged everything straight ahead in the Garden of Eden. At the end you say yourself what the Bible clearly says also in other places … that Jesus now sits at the right hand of God the Father, and you forget the important role he fulfils over there, namely to be a high-priest for God and a mediator between God and man. In case Jesus is God he can not fulfil those two functions.
