JESUS IS GOD


 We can begin to better see Jesus as God in our Bibles when we use A GOOD RULE FOR READING -
Seeing God in a word

YAHWEH – is Gods name but a second name of Yahweh is ELOHIM.

Yahweh – Has to do with His attributes… grace, mercy,love and justice.

Elohim…creative works and things He does.

Adona – His ruler ship


So the thee basic names of the Father are: Yahweh, Elohim, and Adona.


Sometimes when your reading your bible if you’ll notice carefully the words
 LORD  and  GOD all caps and other times the first Letter is capitalized …the letters following lower case as in Lord or God….

This is a rule to help us understand our Bibles.
When there are all caps
LORD/ GOD = YAHEW

First letter cap only….

God= ELOHIM – the creator

Lord= Adonai the ruler who controls our lives.

god – all small letters = pagan deities

Christ and Messiah are the same.

Moshiach  is Hebrew for Messiah.

Christos  - Greek for Messiah.

Christ – English Messiah.



Genesis 1In the beginning *God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (NASB) Genesis 1:1

 
It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands, And I ordained all their host. (NASB) Isa 45:12

*FROM THE BEGINNING WHO CREATED THE HEAVEN AND EARTH.


"He is the image of the unseen God and the first-born of all creation, for in him were created ....all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, Thrones, Dominations, Sovereignties and Powers

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created by Him and for Him. (NASB) Colossians 1:16

 -- All things were created through him and for him. Before anything was created, he existed, and he holds all things in unity. Now the Church is his body, he is its head." (Col.1:15-18).


. . Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. (NASB) 1 Corinthians 8:6
 
All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. (NASB) John 1:3

"In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things came to be, not one thing had its being but through him. All that came to be had life in him and that life was the light of men, a light that shines in the dark, a light that darkness could not overpower." (John1:1-5)



CREATION OF THE WORLD:
Psalm 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
John 1:33 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Genesis 1:22 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
CREATION OF MAN:
Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Job 33:4 The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

But of the Son He says, "THY THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER . . . And, "THOU, LORD, IN THE BEGINNING DIDST LAY THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF THY HANDS . . . (NASB) Hebrews 1:1-2, 8-10  GOD  refers to His Son as GOD.

CONFUSION IN READING IS WHEN THE SON IS REFERRED TO AS THE FATHER......( TRINITY)...... THE NO SEPARATION OF.
John 18:5-8 Again Jesus calls Himself the I AM

He will invoke me, "My father, my God and rock of my safety", and I shall make him my first-born, the Most High for kings on earth." (Ps.89:27).

Do Jesus & the Father share the same names?

Alpha & Omega, Beginning & End, First & Last

Rev 21:6-7 God is Alpha & Omega, Beginning & End

Exodus 3:14 God said his name was “I Am” YHWH
God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: `I AM has sent me to you.'"
Hebrew I AM = YHWH              Greek I AM = Ego Eimi
John 8:53-58 Jesus said He was the I AM
John 18:5-8 Again Jesus calls Himself the I AM




Who destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah?

Genesis 18:1-3, 17 The LORD (YHWH) appeared to Abraham
The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. He said, "If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by. 
Then the LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?
Genesis 19:24 God on earth rained down fire from God in heaven
Then the LORD (on Earth) rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah--from the LORD out of the heavens.
Which God was on earth? Which was in Heaven?
   John 10:30-33    I and the Father are one." Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?" "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."
 Philippians 2:11
… and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Adoni), to the glory of God (Adoni) the Father. 
"The Word was made flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that is his as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14).

 

God calls Jesus God

Hebrews 1:8
But about the Son he (GOD) says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.

 Jesus called himself God

John 5:18
For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

Is the Father God?

Malachi 2:10a

Have we not all one Father ? Did not one God create us? …

Ephesians 4:6

one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Matthew 6:9

"This, then, is how you should pray: "`Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Colossians 1:16-18 – Jesus created all
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the

Is the Holy Spirit God?


Acts 5:3 Peter said that Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit
Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?
Acts 13:2 The Holy Spirit spoke 
While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."


·       Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.....YAHWEH THE FATHER ALWAYS EXISTED.

·       Micah 5:2 2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, 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..... THE LORD JESUS CHRIST SECOND MEMBER OF THE TRINITY ALWAYS EXISTED. HE’S FROM OLD FROM EVERLASTING. THE ONE THAT WAS TO BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM.

Colossians 1:16-18 – Jesus created all
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the preeminence.

Genesis 1In the beginning *God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
JESUS THE CREATOR...... God= ELOHIM – the creator......  Jesus created all.


Even with the key to reading and understanding God, GOD, Lord and LORD.....
It can be difficult......  this is when we must consider GOD........ The Father and God the Sun ...... one.


THIS IS a J.V.I. study.
