THE BIBLE PROVES JESUS IS GOD – PART 2
Is Jesus Christ God in a
human body or not? This is one big bone of contention among Christians and
non-Christians alike. The Bible has the
What is the name of God? Moses, at Mount Sinai, talked to God. He asked God what His name is that he would tell the Israelites. God's reply is in Exodus 3:14-15, to wit from the Good News Bible: God said, "I am who I am. This is what you must say to them: 'The one who is called I AM has sent me to you.' Tell the Israelites that I, the Lord, the God of their ancestors, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, have sent you to them. This is my name for ever; this is what all future generations are to call me."
So the name of God is "I Am Who I Am". Do you know that Jesus said "I Am Who I Am"? This can be found in John 8:24,28 and 13:19. The following were quoted from the Good News Bible.
John 8:24 - "That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. And you will die in your sins if you do not believe that 'I Am Who I Am'."
John 8:28 - "So he said to them, "When you lift up the Son of Man, you will know that 'I Am Who I Am': then you will know that I do nothing on my own authority, but I say only what the Father has instructed me to say."
John 13:19 - "I tell you this now before it
happens; so that when it does happen, you will believe that 'I Am Who I Am.'
Don't these words of Jesus confirm that He is God (the Father) Himself in a human body? Jesus said that if we do not believe that He is God, then we will die in our sins. Why will we die in our sins?
The only way to God (in Heaven) is through Jesus Christ. He said that He is the way, the truth and the life. No one goes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). So if you do not accept Him, you cannot enter His heavenly kingdom. Remember, He said that this world is not His kingdom. His is in the spiritual world. That is where we will all go--to the spiritual world--because we are spirits.
There are only two requirements to go to Heaven: 1) Accept and believe that Jesus Christ is true God AND true man, and 2) Follow the commandments of Jesus Christ. If you meet these requirements, you can go to Heaven no matter what your religious affiliation is. So while there is still time, save your soul. Believe in Jesus. Believe that a person by the name of Jesus Christ existed here on earth some 2000 years ago. He is an historical figure so he existed before. He is not a myth. And then believe also that Jesus Christ is God in human form. The spirit of God dwelt in a human body who we call Jesus Christ. Jesus said "I Am Who I Am'. And that is the name of God--I Am Who I Am.
