You are the mighty God of Doctrine. Jesus is God Part 4.

Tuesday, February 5, 2002

GEN 16:13 Therefore, she called upon the name of the Lord who was speaking to her, you are the mighty God of [vision or doctrine, or revelation], "Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?"

Point 1. Definition. Point 2. The Syllogism of Deity. Point 3. The Claims of the Lord Jesus Christ. Point 4. Scriptural Documentation.

Point 5. Bible Verses Stating Jesus is God.

MAT 1:23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us."

Turn to LUK 7:12

Turn to JOH 1:1 JOH 1:14

Turn to JOH 5:18 JOH 5:21

Turn to JOH 10:27 JOH 13:12 JOH 14:8

Turn to HEB 1:1

2CO 4:4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

PHI 2:6 who, although He preexisted in the essence of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

COL 2:9 For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form,

The Father is addressed by the same identical term, PSA 83:1.

TIT 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus;

ISA 43:10 "You are My witnesses," declares the Lord, "And My servant whom I have chosen, In order that you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me."

ISA 43:11 I, even I, am the Lord; And there is no Savior besides Me.

2PE 1:1 Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:

REV 19:16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

1JO 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding, in order that we might know Him who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

LUK 4:8 It is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only."

MAT 28:17 And when they [the disciples] saw Him, they worshiped Him;

JOH 9:38 And he said, "Lord, I believe." And he worshiped Him.

JOH 20:28 Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"

ZEC 12:10 - Jehovah has pierced hands.

MAL 3:1 "Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple;"

MAT 21:12-13 And Jesus entered the temple and cast out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, "It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer; but you are making it a robbers den."

MAT 12:8 "For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

ISA 41:4 "I, the Lord, am the first, and with the last. I am He."

Turn to REV 1:8 REV 1:17 REV 2:8 REV 21:6 REV 22:12

ISA 43:25; ISA 44:22 - only Jehovah can forgive sin.

COL 3:13, ACT 5:31 - Jesus Christ forgives sin.

Point 6. The Preincarnate Work of Jesus Christ Indicates He Was God.

The most obvious preincarnate work = TLJC is the Creator of the universe, JOH 1:3; COL 1:16; HEB 1:10.

Turn to JOH 3:13 JOH 8:23 JOH 8:56 JOH 17:4

Point 7. TLJC is identified as God by Old Testament Theophanies.

He was the one who wrestled with Jacob, GEN 32:24-30.

He came as the burning bush to Moses, EXO 3:1-6.

EXO 3:1-6, Acts 7:31-35, EXO 13:21; EXO 14:19, JDG 6:11-23; JDG 13:9-22.

The angel of Jehovah is also distinguished from Jehovah.

Elohim is in the plural, and as a plural word translated God in the Old Testament, it refers to the entire Trinity.

GEN 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;"

GEN 3:22 Then the Lord God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil;"

ISA 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" PSA 110:1 "The Lord [God the Father] said to my [Davids] Lord [God the Son]."

Whenever one or more persons are mentioned we have the word Jehovah - used for God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

JOH 1:18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained {Him.} JOH 6:46 "Not that any man has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father."

1TI 6:16 who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light; whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.

1JO 4:12 No one has beheld God at any time;

Point 8. The essence of God is ascribed to Jesus Christ.

1. Savior, PSA 2:6; MAT 28:18; ACT 2:36; 2PE 1:11; REV 19:16. 2. Perfect righteousness and justice = holiness, LUK 1:35; JOH 6:69; HEB 7:26.

3. Love, JOH 13:1,34; 1JO 3:16.

4. Eternal life, ISA 9:6; Micah 5:2; JOH 1:1; JOH 8:58; COL 1:16-17; EPH 1:4; REV 1:11.

5. Omniscience, MAT 9:4; JOH 2:25; 1CO 4:5; COL 2:3; REV 2:23.

6. Omnipresence, MAT 28:20; EPH 1:23; COL 1:27.

7. Veracity, JOH 14:6; REV 3:7.

8. Omnipotence, REV 1:8.

Jesus Christ is also the sovereign one of the universe, GEN 1:1, REV 17:14; REV 1:5-6; REV 19:16.

10. God is immutable; He is neither capable of nor susceptible to change.

HEB 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.

1. We can know the truth about God or we can know what God is like.

2. God was always like Jesus.

3. Because Jesus Christ is God, He is available and able to satisfy all the needs of your heart.
