Jesus Christ is God

If you have followed this Blog very long, you know that I love to talk about Jesus being God.  He WAS and IS GOD and it excites me to no ends when I realize that God who created the Universe and me became a man, just like me, and died so I would not have to.

C.S. Lewis is noted as one of the most prolific christian writers of the last 150 years.  In his book “Mere Christianity” he said this:

” I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon, or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come away with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. ”

Jesus Christ is Lord because He IS God.

While on the earth Jesus did exactly what was apparently the impossible thing He said He would do. He taught on numerous occasions that He would be killed, buried for three days, and would rise from the dead. Obviously, if Jesus did not rise from the dead what He said was a lie and He was justly crucified for blasphemy.

However, since He was raised from the dead what He declared was not blasphemy because He truly was God. He was claiming that He was Yahweh, the LORD God, Jehovah, and the great I AM.

To the people who heard Jesus make these claims it was the grandest form of heresy worthy of death.  It was outrageous and impossible.  But it was true!

Do you believe in Jesus ?  Jehovah’s Witnesses do.  Mormon’s do, but DO YOU BELIEVE HE WAS GOD ?  That will make all the difference.
