77 PROOFS OF THE DEITY OF JESUS
JESUS IS LORD

THE 77 BIBLICAL PROOFS
___________________________________________________
1.) THE NAME IMMANUEL
 Matthew 1: 23, "Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son. and they shall call his name Immanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."
*******
 The Holy Spirit, who authored the Bible (II Peter 1: 21 For prophesy came not in old time by the will of men: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost,) starts off the New Testament by declaring that even the name of the Christ child that Mary bore meant "God with us". It is no accident that they shall call His name Immanuel.
___________________________________________________
2.) THE WAY OF THE LORD
 Matthew 3: 3, "For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
*******
 Matthew is quoting Isaiah 40: 3 which say's, "The voice of him that crieth
in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God." It is obvious that John the Baptist is the one that crieth in the wilderness.It is also John the Baptist who is to prepare the way of the Lord. The word for Lord that Isaiah is Jehovah. John did prepare the way for Jehovah; John prepared a way for Jesus, and only Jesus. Therefore Matthew is saying that Jesus is the Jehovah that John the Baptist prepared the way for.
 Isaiah continues by saying John will also make a highway for our God. The only highway that John prepared for God was the one he prepared for Jesus Christ. God the Father does not need a man to prepare a highway for him, but Jesus Christ, God the Son and also a man needed John's preperation.

3.) TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
 Matthew 4: 5-7, "Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands  they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. And Jesus said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."
*******
 Satan was not tempting God the Father who was in heaven, yet Jesus said, "Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy GOD." Indeed, Satan was tempting God in the person of God the Son.  How could Jesus Christ have warned Satan to not tempt God if Jesus Himself was not God?
___________________________________________________
4.) JESUS GIVES THE TWELVE DISCIPLES SUPERNATURAL POWER
 Matthew 10: 1, "And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease."
*******
 Only God has the power over spirits and He alone possesses the ability to cast them out. Job 1: 9, 10 "So Satan answered the Lord and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all he hath on every side?" Verse 12, "And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power..." In Matthew 8: 29 when Jesus exposed the devils who possessed the Gergesene man, they cried out, "What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?" The devils knew that Jesus had the power to torment devils and they knew that Jesus Christ was God. 
___________________________________________________
5.) JESUS HIMSELF HEALS THE SICK
 Matthew 15: 30-31, "And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel."
*******
 Jesus heals them and they glorified the God of Israel. Psalm 6: 2 "Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed." David calls upon Jehovah to be healed. In the New Testament it is Jesus Christ that performs the healing because Jesus and Jehovah are one in the same.
___________________________________________________
6.) RECEIVING JESUS CHRIST BRINGS ETERNAL LIFE
 Matthew 19: 29 "And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive a hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life."
*******
 Jesus states that one receives everlasting life through the act of putting Him first in his or her life.  Since Jesus and God are One, John 10: 30, "I and my Father are one." Putting Jesus first in one's life is the same as putting God first.
___________________________________________________
7.) JESUS HEALS AND FORGIVES
 Mark 2: 5 -12, "When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath the power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise and take up thy bed, and go thy way unto thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion."
*******
 Jesus Himself said that the Heavenly Father in the One who forgives sins, yet, He too forgave sins. Mat. 7: 14, "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
  Is. 43: 25, "I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins."
 Ps. 103: 1-2, "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases."
___________________________________________________
8.) JESUS IS LORD OF THE SABBATH
 Mark 2: 28, "Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."
*******
 God repeatedly said that He is the Lord of the Sabbath  Exodus 16: 23, "And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the Sabbath unto the Lord..."
 Exodus 16: 25, "And Moses said, Eat that today; for today is a Sabbath unto the Lord..."
 Exodus 20: 10, "But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord the God..."
 Deuteronomy 5: 14, "But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God..."
___________________________________________________
9.) JESUS RAISED THE DEAD
 Mark 5: 41, "And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, (I say unto thee,) arise."
*******
 Jesus makes the statement, "I say unto thee arise." No one can raise the dead but God. In John 11 is the story of the raising of Lazarus. In verse 40 Jesus states in reference to what he was about to do, "Said I not unto thee, if thou woudest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?" The glory was that He (Jesus) was about to raise Lazarus from the dead. If bringing dead person back to life was an easy feat, God would not have gotten any glory.
___________________________________________________
10.) IN MY NAME...
 Mark 16: 17, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
*******
 Jesus said that in His name shall they do these things. It is not that there is something magical or powerful in the five letter word "Jesus", but rather there is power in the authority of His name. Only God has power over devils and sickness and Jesus Christ has that power.
___________________________________________________
11.) TEMPTATION OF JESUS CHRIST
 Luke 4: 12, "And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."
*******
 As in Matt 4: 7, Satan was not tempting God the Father who was in heaven. Yet, Jesus said, "Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy GOD." Indeed, Satan was tempting God; God the Son.
___________________________________________________
12.) WHO CAN FORGIVE SINS, BUT GOD ALONE?
 Luke 5: 21, "And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
 Luke 5: 24, "But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house."
*******
  The Scribes and Pharisees were correct in their declaration that no one can forgive sins but God alone.  II Chronicles 7: 14 "...I (Jehovah) will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin..." In Psalm 25: 18, David calls upon Jehovah, "Look upon mine afflictions and my pain; and forgive all my sins."
___________________________________________________
13.) JESUS POSSESSES THE POWER TO CAST OUT DEVILS
 Luke 11: 20, "But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you."
*******
 The "Finger of God" is an expression that means it is an easy task for God. In Psalms 8: 3 David say's "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers..." that phrase is to mean it was a simple chore for God (John 1: 3) to create the universe, as opposed to Isaiah 53: 1, "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?" It is simple for God to make a universe, but to save mankind, it required the uncovered arm of the Lord.  Jesus states that He has the power of God to cast out devils and He also has the bared arm of God to save mankind.
___________________________________________________
14.) JESUS IS ADONI (GOD)
 Luke 20: 42- 44,  "And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. David therefore called him Lord, how is he then his son?"
*******
 In Psalms, QUOTE THE VERSE David say's, "The Lord (Jehovah) said unto my Lord (Adoni), Sit thou at my right hand..." Jesus asks the question of if how can God say unto God, Sit at my right hand and still be the son of David? The simple truth is that Jesus the Man is the son of David through Mary, and yet Jesus the Son of God is every bit God.
___________________________________________________
15.) THE ETERNAL WORD OF JESUS CHRIST
 Luke 21: 33  Jesus said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away!"
*******
 Jesus Christ makes the prediction and the claim that only God can make: "...my words shall not pass away!" 
___________________________________________________
16.) JESUS CHRIST, THE WORD, IS GOD
 John 1: 1-4, "In the beginning  was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."
*******
 Psalms 33: 6, "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth."
 Is. 45: 18, "For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the lord; and there is none else."
 Is .48: 13, "Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens..." The Word of God makes it plain. The entire universe was made by God and the Bible also states that the universe was made by Jesus the Christ.
___________________________________________________
17.) THE SAMARITANS BELIEVED THAT JESUS WAS THE SAVIOR
 John 4: 42, "And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
*******
 Isaiah 43: 10-11, "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and besides me there is no savior."
  Is. 45: 21-22, "Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else besides me; a just God and a Savior; there is none besides me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."
___________________________________________________
18.) JESUS IS EQUAL TO GOD
 John 5: 17-18, "But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also the God was his Father, making himself equal with God."
*******
 The Jews knew quite well that Jesus claimed to be God and Jesus knew what they thought. Yet, Jesus made no attempt to correct the Jews if they were wrong in assuming that Jesus made himself equal to God. Why should Jesus Christ deny He is God?
___________________________________________________
19.) THE WORD OF JESUS IS THE SAME AS GOD'S WORD
 John 5: 24, "Verily, verily, I say unto to you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come unto condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."
*******
 Jesus say's that whoever hears His words and believe on God the Father shall have everlasting life. In the book of Acts 16: 31 it say's, "...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." Because this was after the death of Jesus Christ, one now must believe in the risen Christ. The  parallel is obvious: Believe in God, believe in Jesus Christ.
___________________________________________________
20.) THE DEAD SHALL HEAR CHRIST'S VOICE
 John 5: 25, "Verily, verily, I say unto to you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear him shall live."
*******
 There is no way that a dead person can hear the voice of anyone other that of God Himself. When Jesus Christ raised Lazarus from the dead He said, "Lazarus, come forth."No human can raise the dead by speaking to them.
___________________________________________________
21.) I WILL RAISE HIM UP
 John 6: 44, "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day."
*******
 God the Father wants humanity to come to Jesus Christ for salvation as stated in Acts 16: 31, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Chris and thou shalt be saved." Also, Jesus himself takes credit for raising up the dead, a feat far beyond human capabilities.
___________________________________________________
22.) BELIEVING ON JESUS BRINGS EVERLASTING LIFE
 John 6: 47-51, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life."
*******
 Eternal life or eternal death is a result of accepting Jesus Christ or rejecting Him. In  Daniel 12: 2 it states, "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and  everlasting contempt." Can any mortal man honestly make the claim that to believe in him (mortal man) will bring eternal life? The answer, of course, is absolutely not!
___________________________________________________
23) JESUS AGAIN TAKES CREDIT FOR HEALING John 7: 23, "If a man on the sabboth day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabboth day?"
*******
 Jesus made a man whole; something that only God can do. The gift of healing was not yet given even to the Apostles from the Holy Spirit. When the Apostles did lay hands to heal the sick they invoked the name of Jesus Christ; Acts 3: 6, "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk."
___________________________________________________
24.) THE WORD OF GOD AND JESUS ARE THE SAME
 John 8: 43-47, "Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and  the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell I you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God."
*******
 As in John 5: 24, Jesus claims to have the absolute truth. "I say the truth... he that is of God heareth God's words."  He goes on to challenge the Scribes and Pharisees to try to convict Him of sin which they could not do.
___________________________________________________
25.) GOD THE FATHER HONORS JESUS
 John 8: 54, "Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honoreth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God,"
*******
 Honor (doxazo in the Greek) means the same as glory. In the John 8: 54 passage Jesus say's that God the Father does honor Him. In other words, God the Father gives Jesus glory.  In Isaiah 42: 8  it states, "I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another." It is true that God will not give His glory to another as He say's He will not, but he does give His glory to God the Son.
___________________________________________________
26.) THE GREAT I AM
 John 8: 58, "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am."
*******
 The "I AM" is first found in Exodus 3: 14, when Moses was at the burning bush. God identified Himself as "I AM THAT I AM". Several times in the Bible, Jesus claims the name "I AM", that is "GOD" intentionally.
___________________________________________________
27.) JESUS HEALS THE BLIND FROM BIRTH John 9: 31-33, "Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.  Since the world began was not it heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing."
*******
 Verse 31 indicates that if one worships God and does his will, God will answer his prayers. But notice that since the world began, no man was ever healed of blindness from birth. No doubt, someone good would have prayed for one of these unfortunate persons, yet without avail. Jesus healed this blind man, John 9: 7, "And said unto him, Go wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went his way therefore,
and washed, and came seeing." Jesus accomplished this miracle not because He was good and therefore God answered His prayers, but because He and the Father are One (John 10: 30). So this is another example of a miracle that only God can and did perform.
___________________________________________________
28.) SALVATION IS BY JESUS
 John 10: 9-11, " I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep."
*******
 Jesus claims that He is the only way to salvation. In Micah 7: 7 it say's, "Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation."  Only Jesus can bring salvation; only God can bring salvation.
___________________________________________________
29 ) JESUS HAS POWER OVER DEATH
 John 10: 18, "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it up again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. This commandment have I received of my Father."
*******
 No mortal man has the power to take up his life again after death. Jesus said, "...and I have the power to take it up again." Jesus Christ possessed the power to raise Himself from the dead.
___________________________________________________
30 ) JESUS GIVES ETERNAL LIFE
 John 10: 28-30, "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."
*******
 Jesus claims to be the one who gives eternal life, something that only God can provide. Peter said in John 6: 68, "Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." Obviously, there is more to giving eternal life than just speaking certain words; it depends on who is speaking them.
___________________________________________________
31.) GOD THE FATHER AND JESUS ARE ONE
 John 10: 30-33 (Jesus said), "I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shown you from my Father; for which of those do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because thou, being a man, maketh thyself God."
*******
 It is true that Jesus was every bit a man while on earth, but also every bit God. The Jews knew and understood what Jesus claimed; that He was indeed God. If Jesus was not God He would have quickly corrected the Jews so as not to be guilty of blasphemy. But He did not because the Jews were right; Jesus made Himself to be God.
___________________________________________________
32.) ONLY JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION AND LIFE
 John 11: 25-26, "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Belevest thou this?"
*******
 Jesus say's that HE is the resurrection and life, and in order to attain eternal life one must believe on the name of Jesus and no one else. Job 19: 25-26, "For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God." Job obviously must be resurrected from the dead in order to see God in the flesh. Therefore his Redeemer must be God, who he will see. The Redeemer is Jesus Christ.
___________________________________________________
33.) BELIEVING ON JESUS IS BELIEVING ON GOD
 John 12: 44-45, "Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me."
*******
 Jesus say's that to believe in Him is to believe in God; he that sees Jesus sees God Himself. If Jesus were not God incarnate, He would have commited blasphemy; an extremely serious sin against God.
___________________________________________________
34.) BELIEVE IN JESUS AS YOU WOULD AS IN GOD John 14: 1, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."
*******
 This is another example of where Jesus say's to believe in Him as one would believe in God. In other words, He is equating Himself with God. 
___________________________________________________
35.) TO SEE JESUS IS TO SEE GOD
 John 14: 6-11, "Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), 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. Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it will sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works sake."
*******
 Again, Jesus said that if you see Him, you see God the Father and if you know Jesus, you know God the Father. God the Father is in Jesus and Jesus is in God the Father. The fact is that Jesus was 100% God as well as 100% man.
___________________________________________________
36.) GOD IS IN JESUS John 14: 20, "At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you."
*******
 Jesus say's that God the Father dwells in Him and by reason of faith, He will dwell in Christians. Ephesians 2: 8, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Only God can live in a multitude of people all at once.
___________________________________________________
37.) GOD AND JESUS WILL COME
 John 14: 23, "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, and keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him."
*******
 As before, Jesus claimed that God the Father and Him were one. Jesus is the only mediator between God and man (I Timothy 3: 5 "For there is  one God, and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus..." That is the only way that they can come unto a Christian and make their residence with him.
___________________________________________________
38.) IN MY NAME
 John 14: 26, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
*******
 God may or may not act affirmatively to the prayers of His people, but because the God the Father and Jesus Christ are One, the Father acts upon the name, the authority, of Jesus Christ.
___________________________________________________
39.) TO HATE JESUS IS TO HATE GOD John 15: 23, "He that hateth me hateth my Father also."
*******
 To hate Jesus is to also God the Father equally; because They are One. There is no way that one can claim to love God and yet reduce Jesus Christ to a level of a mere human.
___________________________________________________
40.) JESUS AND THE FATHER POSSESS ALL
 John 16: 15, "All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and show it unto you. "
*******
 God owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50: 10, "For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.") and everything else in heaven, earth, and the entire universe. ALL belongs to God; ALL belongs to Jesus Christ! No created being could ever make this claim.
___________________________________________________
41.) TO LOVE JESUS IS TO LOVE GOD
 John 16: 27-28, "For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father."
*******
 In contrast, to love Jesus is to love God the Father. The man Jesus came forth from the Father, but Jesus, the Son of God, and yet God the Son, has always been in existence (John 17: 5, "...I had with thee before the world was.")
___________________________________________________
42.) THE DISCIPLE'S CONFESSION John 16: 30, " Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God."
*******
 The disciples believed that Jesus came from God the Father. The words "forth from" is the Greek "exerchomai" means to issue part of original to make an exact duplicate or completion of the original.
___________________________________________________
43.) GOD IS WITH JESUS
 John 16: 32, "Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone, and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me."
*******
 Jesus said, (John 10: 30-33 "I and my Father are one." God the Father is with God the Son because They are One; they are the same.
___________________________________________________
44.) JESUS WAS WITH GOD THE FATHER BEFORE THERE WAS A WORLD
 John 17: 5, "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."
*******
 Genesis 1: 1, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."  Jesus, God the Son was with God the Father at this time. It say's in Genesis 1: 26, And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness...Jesus would have to be God or else Jesus created himself!     John 1: 1 states, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". The same was in the beginning with God. There also seems to be an aside in verse 5 when the Holy Ghost states, "And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."  In other words, those who do not believe, or do not understand that Jesus is God are in darkness.
___________________________________________________
45.) GOD THE FATHER AND JESUS ARE ONE
 John 17: 11, "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou has given me, that they may be one as we are."
*******
 Jesus continues to repeat the unity between God the Father and God the Son in His prayer that God the Father and Jesus are indeed an undivided One.
___________________________________________________
46.) JESUS AND THE FATHER ARE IN EACH OTHER
 John 17: 21, "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."
*******
 Again, Jesus Christ repeats the claim that God the Father and God the Son are One.

47.) THE KINGDOM OF JESUS THE CHRIST
 John 18: 36, "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."
*******
 In this passage, Jesus first of all states that His kingdom is obviously heaven. Jesus also say's that his servants (huperetes, Greek for subordinate, assistant meaning Jesus angels) would fight for Him.  Matthew 26: 53, "Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?"  Jesus the man knew quite well what His mission was: to die on the cross. Jesus and the Father being one, Jesus could have easily called down all the angels needed to rescue Him from that situation. The reason being that angels obey only God.
___________________________________________________
48.) MY LORD AND MY GOD
 John 20: 27-28, "Then saith he (Jesus) to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God."
*******
 If Jesus was not God, it would have been nothing short of blasphemy for Jesus not to have denied what Thomas just said. Instead, Jesus accepted the confession of Thomas and adds in verse 29, "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. What do the blessed believe? They believe what Thomas said: Jesus is Lord and God.

49.) GOD GLORIFIED JESUS
 Acts 3: 13, "The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go."
*******
 The word "Glorified" means the same in the New Testament as it does in the Old Testament: to render esteem or honor. As pointed out before, God will not share His glory with anyone: Isaiah 42: 8,  "I am the Lord (Jehovah): that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images."
___________________________________________________
50.) NO OTHER NAME
 Acts 4: 12, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
*******
 No other name but Jesus saves.
 Is 49: 26, "...and all flesh shall know that I the Lord (Jehovah) am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob."  Notice that Lord here is Jehovah, national God of Israel. He is also their Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob, another name for Israel. The name of the  Savior of the Old Testament is Jehovah; the name of the Savior of the New testament is Jesus the Christ. Jehovah and Jesus are the same.

51.) GOD (JESUS) MADE EVERYTHING Acts 4: 24, "And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, earth , and the sea, and all that in them is."
*******
 Philippians 2: 11, "And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord..."
 The Holy Spirit, who was to guide the Apostles in all truth ,(John 16: 13, "...the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth...") had  already came upon the disciples in the upper room. When Peter and John were with their own company they were aware that Jesus was the creator of all things, John 1:1. In acts 4: 24, the Apostles called Jesus "God", and they were in truth.
 Also, the passage here states that "Lord, thou art God".
 In Acts 9: 17  And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
 "THE LORD EVEN JESUS" How many Lords do we have? One! And that one is God Almighty. JESUS THE LORD IS GOD, THE FATHER OF JESUS CHRIST IS ALSO LORD, AS WELL AS GOD,  GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LORD!
 There is NO contradiction! This is the Holy Trinity.
___________________________________________________
52.) GOD EXALTED JESUS
 Acts 5: 31, "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins."
*******
 Another example of where God, who does not exalt anyone else, Isaiah 42: 8, "I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." God exalted Jesus Christ to be a Prince and Savior. Prince, Greek archegos, also means author. Acts 3: 15, "...and killed the Prince of life..." should mean "Author of life" because Jesus Christ created all things, John 1: 1. God appointed Jesus Christ Savior, and yet as in Isaiah 43: 11, "I, even I, am the Lord; and besides me there is no savior." there is no other Savior then God himself. This is simply explained by the Holy Trinity.
___________________________________________________
53.) JESUS RECONCILED THE WORLD TO GOD
 II Corinthians 4: 18-19, "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing, their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation."
*******
 God was in Christ and Christ in God. As Jesus said, "I and the Father are One" in John 17: 11. This is the only way God could have reconciled man unto Himself, by the crucifixion. If Jesus was not God, He could not have paid for His own sins, let alone the sins of the world. But we already know that because mortal man is born into sin, Psalm 51: 5 "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me." Jesus the was not born into sin, so therefore He was the only sacrifice that God the Father could have used.
___________________________________________________
54.) GOD IN US
 Ephesians 4: 6, " One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all."
*******
 God is in all Christians, but only through Jesus Christ as per John 14: 20, "I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you."
___________________________________________________
55.) JESUS IS THE FORM OF GOD
 Philippians 2: 6, "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God."
*******
 Jesus is in the form of God. The word "form" is the Greek word "morphe", it means the shape or the nature of. Jesus also did not think it was wrong to consider himself equal with God. "Equal" in the Greek means exactly that: equal or as much. In other words, Jesus regarded Himself as God. One may disagree that Jesus was indeed God, but Jesus did not disagree with that fact. To reject the deity of Jesus Christ is to reject who Jesus really was.
___________________________________________________
56.) THE NAME OF JESUS
 Philippians 2: 9-11, "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of  things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
*******
 This verse is loaded with facts concerning the deity of Jesus Christ for it openly states: in the name or authority of Jesus Christ, every being on earth, in heaven, and in hell, every human, every angel, and every demon including Satan must bend or bow the knee to Him. Bending the knee is another way of submitting oneself to the authority of God which all must one day do.
___________________________________________________
57.) JESUS IS THE IMAGE OF GOD
 Colossians 1: 14-17, "In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sin: Who is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of every creature: 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: And he is above all things, and by him all things consist."
*******
 Jesus is the image of God. Image, Greek (eiko), means: statue, likeness, profile, representation, resemblance. As in John 14: 9,  "...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father..." The second part of the verse states that Jesus Christ created all things that are in the earth, in heaven, visible and invisible. Genesis 1: 1, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." All the things created by Jesus Christ were also created for Jesus Christ.
___________________________________________________
58.) IN JESUS DWELLS THE GODHEAD
 Colossians 2: 8-9, "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily."
*******
 In Jesus the Christ dwelleth, to house permanently, all the fulness, completion or perfection, of the Godhead, Godhead = theotes from theos = supreme Divinity  very God,  bodily, bodily physically. This verse states positively that Jesus, while in His body was every bit God.
___________________________________________________
59.) CHRIST JESUS IN GOD
 Colossians 3: 3-4, "For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory."
*******
 When  we are in Christ we are dead to trespasses and sin. We are also in God because we are in Jesus Christ, John 15: 5  ...He that abide in me, and I in him, the same bringeth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
___________________________________________________
60.) CHRIST FORGAVE US
 Colossians 3: 13, " Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye."
*******
 Jesus has the Godly power to forgive sins. He gave the power to forgive to the Apostles and disciples in what we call The Lord's prayer, ...And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us...
___________________________________________________
61.) THE FAITHFUL LORD
 II Thessalonians 3: 3, "But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil."
*******
 Jesus, the Lord, had the power to strengthen Christians and keep them away from evil. This is another claim that only God can make.
___________________________________________________
62.) JESUS, GOD OUR SAVIOR
 I Timothy 2: 3-4, " For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."
*******
 We know that Jesus Christ is our Savior; Philippians 3: 20, "For our conversation is in heaven from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ."  We can also see that Jesus the Savior is called God in this passage. The man Jesus was pure man and is also pure God.
___________________________________________________
63.) GOD IN THE FLESH
 I Timothy 3: 16, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
*******
 This undeniable statement "God was manifest in the flesh" is further proof that Jesus Christ is absolutely God. The word "manifest" (phaneroo in the Greek) means to display plainly, to declare or show oneself, or to be seen. Jesus Christ was not a representation of God, He was and is God!  
___________________________________________________
64.) GOD IS OUR SAVIOR
 Titus 1: 3, "But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Savior."
*******
 In II Timothy 1: 10 it say's, "But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ..." God is our Savior; Jesus Christ is our Savior. They are one in the same!
___________________________________________________
65.) WHAT GOD SAY'S ABOUT JESUS
  Starting at verse 5 and through verse 13 of Hebrews chapter 1, it is a record of God Himself speaking...
 Hebrews 1: 8, " But unto the Son he saith, The throne, O God is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom."
*******
 God calls Jesus Christ, the second person of the Holy Trinity, "God".
___________________________________________________
66.) EXPRESS IMAGE
 Hebrews 1: 1-3, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (Verse 3) 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."
*******
 In verses 1 and 2 God the Father is the main subject. In verse 3 Jesus Christ, God the Son is the main subject. Who (Jesus Christ) being the brightness of (The word his was added later) glory (praise or worship) and the express image (exact copy) of God the Father... Deuteronomy 6: 4, "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord" Jesus Christ being the exact copy of God the Father must be God also. John 10: 30-33, "I and my Father are one.
___________________________________________________
67.) THOU, LORD
 Hebrews 1: 10, " Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands."
*******
 In verse 10 of chapter 1, God calls Jesus Christ "Lord." Then goes on to say that it was Jesus who laid the foundation of the earth and created the heavens. In Isaiah 42:5,
"Thus saith the God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein." God says that Jesus Christ is the creator of all and everything, including those who deny him.
___________________________________________________
68.) GOD BUILT ALL THINGS
 Hebrews 3:4, " For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God."
*******
 It is stated that, "...he that built all things is God." It has already been established that Jesus built (created) all things. Therefore, here is another proof that Jesus Christ is God.
___________________________________________________
69.) GOD IS OUR SAVIOR
 Jude 25, "To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen."
*******
 God is our Savior and in many other Bible verses it is stated that Jesus Christ is our Savior, for example: Philippians 3: 20, "...we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." 
___________________________________________________
70.) ALPHA AND OMEGA
 Revelation 1: 8, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty."
*******
 It is Jesus Christ who is Lord over all as stated in many verses, for example:  Romans 6: 11, "Likewise reckon ye also yourself to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord." In the verse it is also stated the Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega. There was no one prior to Christ and He will have no end. Some people wrong believe that Jesus Christ never said these words, but were spoken by God the Father. The next section, 69.) makes it clear just who is speaking.
___________________________________________________
 71.) Again, ALPHA AND OMEGA
 Revelation 1: 11, "...I am Alpha and Omega, the first and last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia... And I turned to see the voice that spake to me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and  his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not, I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and death."
*******
 Here again it is emphatically stated that Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. When Jesus said these things John looked to see who was talking and saw it was the Son of Man, Jesus Christ. Jesus also said that it was He that was dead and is alive forever more. In Isaiah 48: 12 God is speaking to Isaiah: "Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called, I am the first, I also am the last." Since God is First and Last and Jesus Christ is First and Last Both God and Jesus Christ are one in the same. If God predates the Christ in any way, then Jesus could not have claimed to be the Alpha and Omega; the First and Last.

72.) THE THRONE OF GOD
REVELATION Chapters 4 - 7 
 4:2, "And immediately I was in the spirit and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne"
 4: 8-9, "And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever."
 4:11, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."
 5: 6-7, "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb, as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of his that sat upon the throne."  
 5: 13, "And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessings, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever."
*******
 Chapter 4:8 ends with, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."  Revelation 1: 8-11 prove that it absolutely was Jesus Christ who this is referring to.
 Chapter 4: 9, "And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever." and Chapter 5: 7, "And he (Jesus Christ the Lamb) came and took the book out of the right hand of his that sat upon the throne." These verses indicate that it was God the Father who sat upon the throne while God the Son is standing by His right side.
 Chapter 4: 11 The Bible establishes that it was Jesus Christ who created all things John 1: 1. It  is Jesus Christ who is worthy to receive glory and honor and power. It is Jesus Christ who is Lord God Psalm 7: 1, " O Lord my God, in thee do I out my trust..." In chapter 7: 12 it say's that God was to receive these accolades: "Saying, Amen: Blessing (praise) and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen." Again, this proves that Jesus Christ was correct when he said in John 10: 30 - 33, "(Jesus said) I and my Father are one."
 Chapter 5: 13 The elders are giving blessings, and honor, and glory, and power, to Him that sat upon the throne, and unto the Lamb( Jesus Christ) for ever and ever. It is obvious that Jesus Christ and God the Father are united as ONE.
 Chapter 7: 17, "For the Lamb (Jesus Christ) which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of water: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." ("My Father and I are One")
___________________________________________________
73.) GLORY TO GOD OUR SALVATION
 Revelation 4: 10-11, "The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things."
 Revelation 7: 9-10, "After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb."
*******
 The twenty four elders worshiped Him that sat upon the throne (God) and God is worth to receive glory and honor, because He has created all things. It was Jesus Christ, God the Son who created all things, John 1: 10, "He (Jesus Christ) was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not." God and the Lamb are worshiped together; Glory- Isaiah 42: 8, "I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." Glory- Is. 48: 11, "For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another."
 The last part of verse 10 say's "Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." It is not God who needs salvation but all mankind. The word here is the Greek word "soteria" which means "savior". The text is again calling God our Savior. Titus 1: 3, "But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Savior."
___________________________________________________
74.) LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE Revelation 13: 8, "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
*******
 In Exodus 32: 31- 33,  Moses is praying on behalf of his people: "And Moses returned unto the Lord (Jehovah),  and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin-; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou has written. And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book."
 In Psalm 69, David is praying to God (Jehovah) for various reasons: verse 16, "Hear me, O Lord; for they kindness is good..." In verse 28, David is asking God to remove the evil ones from His book: "Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous."
 The Book in Exodus, the book of the living, and the book of life all belong to the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
___________________________________________________
75.) LORD GOD AND THE LAMB
 Revelation 21: 22-23, "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither the moon, /to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.---"
*******
 This verse bolsters that God the Father and the Lamb (God the Son) are totally one. The Lord God (There is only one Lord; Jesus is Lord, Romans 6: 23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.") and the Lamb are the temple. God and the Lamb are also the light. Revelation 22: 5,"...the Lord God giveth them light..."
___________________________________________________
76.) AND THE LAMB ARE LIFE
 Revelation 22:1-3, "And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him"
*******
 God the Father and the Lamb (God the Son) is the giver of life. The phrase "God and the Lamb" is singular as the text bears out: "...and his servants shall serve him." Revelation 22: 4, "And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads." Whose face shall they see and whose name shall be on their foreheads? God's! The text does not say they will see the face of the Lamb and the face of God, or the name of the Lamb and the name of God. It is obvious that at this time, the saved who are in heaven can look upon the face of God without dying. Revelation 4: 10
say's that the four and twenty elders fell down before him that sat upon the throne. Therefore, the elders and anyone else who is in heaven can see that God the Father who sat upon the throne and the Lamb, God the Son, who stood on the right side if the throne are one in the same. The Holy Spirit, who wrote the Bible ( II Timothy 3: 16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." and John 14: 26, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things...") does not require the reader of Revelation to fully understand the Holy Trinity, only to believe that the Holy Trinity exists.
___________________________________________________
77.) JESUS WILL COME QUICKLY
 Revelation 22: 12-13, "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
 Verse 20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
*******
 Once again, Jesus Christ testifies that He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Isaiah 44: 6, "Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his Redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God.") Also, blessed are they that do the commandments of Jesus Christ. How do we know that Jesus said these things? The answer is in verse 20: "He which testifieth these thing saith, Surely I come quickly..."  In Revelation 3: 11, Jesus said that He will come quickly  "Behold, I come quickly...
***************************************************************************
CONCLUSION
 Once, a homosexual took a pair of  scissors and proceeded to cut out all the references to God's hatred of the sin of homosexuality. Then he boasted that his Bible did not contain scriptures that were against homosexuality. This is what one must also due in order to deny that their Bible professes the deity of Jesus Christ.
 In a recent survey using a lie detector, one company asked all applicants if they believed there is a God. Of all the given the quiz who answered no, meaning that they were atheists, none indicated that they were telling the truth; all were indeed lying whether they actually knew it or not. If one were to inform these people of the staggering amount of proof that there is a God, they would in all probability still deny they believed in a God. Proof, any proof will not convince a non-believer because that is the job of the Holy Spirit and not us humans. We can only point the way and God, through the Holy Spirit, takes over from there.
 But people who claim to know God, understand the Bible, and yet continue to deny the deity of Jesus Christ, do so because of their cult's radical bias and not because of lack of biblical proof. Verification of this in II Corinthians 4: 3-4, "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
 Most cult members are indeed fooled by their leader's errors and in fact, they are sincere in their belief. We should look upon these people as lost sheep and not enemies. We should witness to them whenever possible, in love.
 Why that would be tragic for someone who knows about Jesus and yet reject his deity. To accept Jesus Christ is to also accept His deity. Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and God is what is known as being "Born again". Romans 10: 9, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus Christ, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
 You may claim to know our Lord Jesus Christ, but does He know you? Accept Him as your savior now if you haven't already done so!
