Blog/ Lesson Sixteen Who Is Jesus? Part Nine
Would the REAL God please stand up! Who is Jesus? He was and is and will always be God? We serve ONE God, One Lord and One Spirit. How can this be? Look at some Scriptures with me.
What did Jesus say was the first (most important) commandment to proclaim? He said, "Hear, (listen up) O Israel! "There is ONE Lord." After that, He said, "Love the Lord your God with all your mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.
And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: (Mark 12:28-32).
When Adam and Eve sinned, God said, "Now they are like us; they know both good and evil."
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:...(Genesis 3:21-22a)
I think the "us" here was the entire angelic host of Heaven who were excitedly looking on as God spoke the Universe into existence, and formed Adam and Eve to start the human race. All of Heaven knew that Lucifer and 1/3 of the angelic host had sinned against God before the creation began.
Since Love thinks no evil, and God is Love, then evil was not even thought of before Lucifer’s rebellion. It had to have been Lucifer’s sin that made Heaven’s host aware of evil.
We are created in God’s image, Deity. I have a spirit, soul (mind, will, and emotions) housed in a body working in different functions but all in harmony that make up ONE personality and character; me. Let us look at the prophesy of Jesus in the Old Testament that is printed on thousands of Christmas cards, as well as Christmas sermons, programs and plays:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6
This one verse interchanges Jesus with:
1. Deity in Heaven, as Mighty God and Everlasting Father.
2. Deity in Christ, in which the Son is given, the government shall be upon His shoulders and He shall be called Wonderful.
3. Deity on Earth in the believer’s heart as the Holy Spirit; the Counselor and Prince of peace.
Jesus said, "I won’t leave you comfortless, I will come to you and I and the father are one."
This means that all of Deity lives in us in the form of the Spirit of God or the Holy Spirit.
; this same Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus (Born in Him). This is why we invite Jesus into our heart at Salvation. We serve ONE God, ONE Lord who is ONE Spirit.
Did you know that the Knowledge that there is ONE God makes the demons tremble?
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.(James 2:19)
Why does this scare them? Because the same Jesus Christ who judged Satan and his fallen angels on Calvary has given all of us power over them, and given us the Great Commission to heal the sick and cast out devils. Through Divine Partnership; Spirit of Jesus in us and His commanding His Angels at our prayers, the fallen angels know they will be bound with chains of iron in the pit making them God’s footstool, putting an end to their evil activity on this earth, setting the captive free! This is the greater works than Jesus did, because He will live in all of us. Wow, what a Last Day Revival we will have!
(There will be more on this subject in the fourth book of my new series: The Truth About God in The Book of Revelation.)
I really think some of the Truths of God have been saved; hidden from Satan and his hindrances (especially the Book of Revelation) which reveal the mission of victory over evil that God intends on accomplishing through the body of Christ the church (His Army) in this last day Church age, the Laodicea church age. The great mission of this age, (the First and Later Rain/ Last Day Revival) will usher in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ! Will we in "America" be persecuted, and die for the cause of Christ? Yes, if we don’t pray this Great Revival through to signs and wonders and healing miracles; which is the ONLY thing that will bring America to God, before Communist or Jihad starts putting down God’s Army in America. Who are we that we think, "God won’t let us American Christians suffer?" Are we arrogant enough to think that He Loves us more that His children in other countries?
Truth is we are spoiled to our freedoms and comfort and take them for granite, when our forefathers fought; giving lives that we have the freedoms of speech and to worship Christ. And we have many Christians who sit back and wait for Jesus’s return thinking "God will not let us Americans go through bad persecution and martyrdom. God doesn’t love us or any other group of people any more than He does any other human being. God is "WHOSOEVER!" Jesus came to reveal the Father Deity’s character and words; Jesus said:
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:15-18)
There has been thousands martyred for believing and praying to Jesus Christ: in the countries with leaderships that are socialist/ communist (who are atheist and do not believe in God) and dictate what paradigm their people are to hear and believe, as well as those countries that are ruled by Moslem Brotherhood Terrorist groups, who have been taught by the paradigm of Jihad (that all must die who don’t believe in their image of their Allah god).
We must go to our secret closets of prayer and seek God for a real move of His Spirit; we must quickly press into God’s presence, until we get to His fire of His POWERFUL presence! God is waiting on us. He gave the Earth to the sons of men, Adam gave it to Lucifer. We must take it back through the POWER of God in and through us! America, the flag still flies! We are still living in the best nation in the World! We have taken the Gospel to the nations, now it’s time to save our own people, and all who have come to us!
Who is Jesus? God in the flesh; Jesus was and is and will always be GOD!
Deity is ONE and the same Spirit working in three ways:
1). Deity in Heaven, the Father,
2). Deity in Jesus Christ, the Son,and
3). Deity in our heart/spirit, Holy Spirit.
But has Christian Modern Theology separated our God/ Deity too far apart into three personalities and characters, (Holy Trinity) causing people of other faiths to refuse Jesus and say that He was just a great prophet? How can they know and except Jesus Christ as Savour?
It is my perception: That in order to bring people of all faiths into the kingdom of God including those with no faith (atheist and agnostics); the "Body of Christ", (every person in the World who has received Jesus Christ as their Savior), must believe and teach: there is "ONE" God, one Deity, one Spirit, one Master, King, and one LORD Jesus Christ, who is SAVIOR for all mankind who receive HIM.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him (John 14:1-7).
Receiving Christ IS: repentance and being "born again" in our spirit, which is turning away from our old man of sin and becoming a new creature in Christ. Does this mean that we won’t ever make a mistake; listen to "Satan’s fruit of lies" and sin again? Absolutely not, but Jesus will always be right there waiting to hear our sorrowful, sincere repentance, forgiving us and cleansing us from all our fleshly trash, giving us a clean heart and remembering it no more.
