Is Jesus God? (Part 3 of 4)

The Bible tells us that the sins of the fathers will be visited upon their children to the third and fourth generation.  Here’s another way of saying, it is unfortunate that children inherit their parent’s sins.  The Bible also tells us that Jesus had no sin.  Therefore the special thing about Jesus was that His parents had no sins to pass onto Jesus.

Although all children are born without sin, and choose to sin after birth, the only reason Jesus was without sin is that He chose not to sin after He was born.  Since Jesus’ soul was absolutely sinless at birth like all human beings, He was the only human being ever born on earth who was clean enough (sinless) for God to take-up residency inside His human body.

Since God is inside every human being, ‘taking up residency’ means God allowed Jesus to have a personal relationship with Him.  Therefore, God occupied Jesus’ body, but Jesus was not the God who possessed Him.  Jesus, having God living inside Him from the womb, had the closest relationship a human being could possibly have with God.  This is the meaning of the name Immanuel, which means “God with us”, or God is with us (see Isaiah 7:14 for the prophecy foretelling the birth of Jesus the Christ).

Jesus’ parents being as nearly sinless as is humanly possible, is also proven by Luke 1:27-28 showing Mary was highly favored by the Lord, which can only result by being as sinless as possible.

“Though he were a Son, yet (Jesus) learned obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;” ~Hebrews 5:8-9

Jesus had to learn to be obedient to God.  If Jesus were God the Father, He would not have had to learn to be obedient to God the Father!  Nor would Jesus have had to be made perfect if He were God the Father in human flesh, which is a damnable lie started by the Roman Catholic Church to undermine the truth about God and His Christ.

Now Hebrews 5:8-9 is telling us that Jesus became the author (or writer) that has the power to give people eternal salvation, but only to those people who obey Jesus, who said:

If ye love me, keep my commandments.” ~John 14:15

“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.” ~John 15:10

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.  And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” ~1 John 2:1-4

“If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.” ~1 Corinthians 14:37

There is also another immutable (non-argumentable) evidence that Jesus was not God the Father in a human body.  The scriptures tell us:

“And the Father himself, which hath sent me, has borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.” ~John 5:37

Since Jesus told us no man has ever seen God the Father and has never heard God the Father’s voice, then how can anyone accept the lie that Jesus was God the Father in human flesh: who was both seen and heard by thousands, if not millions of people, while Jesus walked the earth as a human man?

  1. i know ‘jesus’ is a man but i also know he is god. isaiah 6 says the prophet saw god. john 12:41 says isaiah saw ‘jesus’ so if ‘jesus’ isn’t god either isaiah got it wrong or john did.

    • Hi Ken,

      Let me begin your answer by first stating that understanding Jesus and all the parameters surrounding his existence are quite complicated, so bear with me and I will explain.

      Before Jesus was born, he was a spirit just like all human beings, which includes satan. All spirits created by God had to be born on earth after the war in heaven (SEE Revelation chapter 12). Before the creation of the universe and the earth, Jesus was an arch angel named Michael, which is actually a Hebrew sentence that translates to “the One who is exactly like God.”

      In the Old Testament, we mostly see the Lord, who is the God of Israel and not the God of creation. The God of Israel is Jesus before he was born. You have to keep in mind that no man has ever seen God or ever will. (All scripture must be taken in context with all other scripture.)

      When Jesus is born, God the Father puts the spirit who was named Michael into the child growing in Mary’s womb and the child is named Jesus. The Bible is clear that Jesus is not God while He is a man living on earth, but after Jesus is murdered on the cross, we are told He is glorified by God the Father. The Glorification of Jesus is the multiplication of Jesus’ personal spirit, who was Michael before He was born.

      The multiplication of Jesus’ spirit is the New Testament promise of the prophecy found in Jeremiah 31:31, Joel 2, and Acts 2, where God promised the human race He would write the Bible in every person’s brain on earth in New Testament times. This is fulfilled by Jesus becoming the Comforter (our conscience) after He is murdered. The scripture that proves this states, “Jesus did not consider it robbery to become exactly like God the Father.”

      Jesus is never referred to by the apostles as God, until after Jesus is dead. The reason is, Jesus is not God as the Romans would have Christians believe, but Jesus is made a God equal to God over everyone who chooses to believe what He taught us.

      Therefore, Isaiah saw the God of Israel (Michael the archangel) before Jesus was born. So did Moses. And the Apostles knew Jesus had been made their God after He learned obedience through suffering, and is only called God after He returned from the grave.

      So, Jesus was in command directly under God before He was born. Jesus was a prophet and just a man after He was born until He died. Now, Jesus is equal to God and totally in command.

      If you have any further questions… write and I’ll be happy to answer.

      God bless you,
      Elijah
