JESUS – His Nature

Jesus has always been God and will always be God!

  • “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Matthew 1:23
  • “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.” – Hebrews 1:8
  • “And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.– John 20:28
  • I and my Father are one”– John 10:30
  • “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth, and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.– Psalm 90:2
  • And he (Jesus) is before all things, and by him all things consist.” – Colossians 1:17

Yet, many claim that Jesus is not God!  They will say that He was a prophet, a good man, or the son of God, but not God the Son!

What are we to do?

  • “Try” the spirits – Read 1 John 1:1-4
    • Try = to test or approve
  • Believe that Jesus is God (same as God the Father and Holy Spirit) – Read 1 John 5:1-12

Jesus’ Omnipotence

  • “I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty1:8
  • “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;“- Hebrews 1:3

Jesus’ Omniscience

  • “And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?” –Matt 9:4
  • “Nathaniel saith unto him, whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.” – John 1:48
  • The woman at the well –John 4:1-26

Jesus’ Omnipresence

  • “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139:7-10

Jesus is God but He humbled Himself

  • Read Philippians 2:1-11

Why serve, give and love? Because He first loved us!  

“We love him, because he first loved us.”1 John 4:19
