Jesus Is God

God’s Word provides Scriptural proof that Jesus is God:

A-Christ Is God Incarnate

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23).

“God was manifest in the flesh” (I Timothy 3:16).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).

B-Christ Is Eternal-Only God Has This Attribute

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, … yet 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” (Micah 5:2).

“Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting” (Psalm 93:2).

“Thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting” (Isaiah 63:16).

C-Christ Has Divine Names

Lord: Matthew 22:42-45; Psalm 110:1; John 20:28.

Everlasting Father and the mighty God: Isaiah 9:6.

Savior: God is Savior in Isaiah 43:3, 43:11, 45:15, 45:21; Hosea 13:4; Luke 1:47; I Timothy 4:10; yet this same title is given to Jesus Christ in Luke 2:11; Philippians 3:20; II Timothy 1:10; II Peter 2:20.

Rock: God is the Rock in Deuteronomy 32:4, 32:15, 32:18, 32:30-31, I Samuel 2:2, Psalm 18:31; yet this title is given to the Lord Jesus Christ in I Corinthians 10:1-4; I Peter 2:7-8; Romans 9:33.

First and last: the Lord is first and last in Isaiah 44:6 and Jesus is given the same name in Revelation 1:17.

D-Christ Claimed Equality With God the Father

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God” (Philippians 2:6).

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19).

“…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?” (John 14:9).

“I and my Father are one” (John 10:30).

E-Christ Is Omnipresent-Only God Has This Attribute

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

“…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

F-Christ Is Omnipotent-Only God Has This Attribute

“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9-10).

“the Lord God omnipotent reigneth” (Revelation 19:6).

“the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords” (I Timothy 6:15).

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).

G-Christ Is Omniscient-Only God Has This Attribute

“And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again” (Matthew 20:19; 16:21).

“go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee” (Matthew 17:27).

“For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly” (John 4:16-19).

Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee” (John 1:47-49).

H-Christ Is the Creator

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:1-3).

“by him were all things created” (Colossians 1:16).

“by whom also he made the worlds” (Hebrews 1:2).

I-Christ Received Worship Which Belonged to God Alone

“Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10).

In Acts 10:25-26, and in Revelation 19:10, worship of anyone other than God Himself is forbidden, yet Jesus willingly received worship throughout His public ministry (John 20:28; Mat. 8:2; 9:18; 15:25; 28:9; John 9:38).

J-Christ Forgave Sins Which Only God Can Do

“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more” (Jeremiah 31:34). According to these words, it is GOD Who has the power and right to forgive sins. However, the New Testament says that Jesus Christ has this power:

“When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house” (Mark 2:5-11).

K-Christ Had Power Over His Own Life and Death

“Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father” (John 10:17-18).

“And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost” (Luke 23:46).

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
