Jesus Christ Has Always Been and Will Always Be God
Case 8: Jesus Christ
Is Jesus Christ truly God?
Jesus Christ truly is the uncreated, eternal, and loving God. Titus 2:13 – Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
This Truth Makes
Jesus Christ is God. He claimed to be God, He did things that only God can do, and God Himself talks to Jesus as “God.”
The truth is, if Jesus was not fully and completely God, then all mankind to be condemned (lost, doomed) in their sins. No sacrifice less than God Himself would ever be good enough as a sacrifice for our sins. Why?
1. Only someone Who is God could even bear the full punishment for the sins of the world.
2. Salvation is from the Lord (Jonah 2:9), and the whole message of the Bible is that no sinful human being – no creature – could ever save a fellow creature. From start to finish, salvation had to be God’s work and God’s alone.
3. Only God could serve as the Mediator between God and man, to bring us back to God and to reveal God to us.
The One for Whom Christians look (Jesus Christ) is the same One who will return again in person someday. The Bible says we ought to be watching for His second coming.
