HOW DO WE KNOW JESUS IS GOD?
 

Giddaye, lambs of God!

Nardia and her best friend Tahnee were talking to a lady and a man at Tahnee’s front door. They had rung the bell.
The man said,
“people talk about Jesus Christ being God at your church, but He isn’t God at all. He was created by God, Who’s name is Je-ho-vah. Jesus was just the Son of God.”

The girls listened awhile, until Tahnee’s mother came to the door.
She politely told the people, called Je-ho-vah’s Witnesses, that her family wasn’t interested in their message.

Later the girls asked her if it was true about Jesus not being God.
“Were those people right, Mum?
I thought Jesus was God Who came to the world as a man.”
So Tahnee’s mum sat right down with them and showed the girls really thrilling things from the Bible’s pages:

The Bible says that Jesus is GOD, Je-ho-vah:
“For unto us a child is born [ Jesus was born ], unto us a son is given:
and the govern-ment shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonder-ful, Counsell-or, The MIGHTY GOD,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ( Isaiah 9:6).

See how Jesus is called The MIGHTY GOD?

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing
of the GREAT GOD and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” ( Titus 2:13).

See how Jesus is called the GREAT GOD?

“And Thomas answered [ Jesus ] and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”
( John 20:28).

See here how Jesus is “my Lord and my GOD” ?

Jesus is called the “WORD” in John 1:1.
Here it is:
“In the beginning was the Word [ Jesus Christ ],
and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS GOD.” ( John 1:1).
The "Word"  doesn't mean that Jesus is not a Person!   It means that the thoughts of God were spoken in Jesus the Person.  He showed us the True God in Himself. Jesus is NOT just the Word found in the Bible. He is a REAL Divine Person!

All the glorious things that make God to be God
are what the Bible shows us Jesus is too!

He is the One Who creat-ed the earth and universe.
Jesus is the Rock just as God is the Rock.
Jesus is Judge of all just as God is Judge.
Jesus is Lord of lords just as God is Lord of lords.
Jesus is Light as God is Light. Jesus is Saviour as God is Saviour.
Jesus is the First and the Last and so is Je-ho-vah God the First and the Last.


We could look at lots and lots of Bible verses to show that Jesus is God - for sure! Let’s look at just a few more. About Jesus being the LORD OF LORDS and King of kings.
Only GOD can be called the Lord of Lords, by the way:

“...and the Lamb [ Jesus Christ ] shall over-come them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faith-ful.”
( Revelation 17:14).

Jesus is the Creator, the One Who made all things!
But surely GOD is the One Who made all things?
Yes, so we know Jesus is GOD!
 

 “... into the kingdom of his dear Son:  In whom we have re-demp-tion
[ we are saved ] through his blood, even the forgive-ness of sins:  Who is the image of the in-vis-ible God, the first-born of every creature:  For by him [ Jesus ] were all things created [ everything was made by and through Jesus ] that are in heaven, and that are in earth...”  ( Colossians 1:13 -16).

“But unto the Son he saith [ God the Father says ],
Thy throne, O GOD,  is for ever and ever: ...”  ( Hebrews 1:8)

Yes, Jesus is GOD all right, that’s for sure!
So don’t believe anyone who tells you He is not God!
They don’t know what they are talking about. Bye now!
