KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:21 KJV “For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.”
The father and the Son are one. Whatever the father does, the father has power to make alive and the Son also has the ability to quicken and make alive. He says he can do it according to his own choice. The Pharisees had earlier remarked that, if Jesus said God was His Father, then he being a man, was making himself God. The Lord through this discourse was revealing to them, that He was indeed one with the father. The Lord made the following about His relation with the father. John 14:9 KJV “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, Shew us the Father?” Some have tried to argue that Jesus says nowhere in the scriptures that. He is God.
Please just take a look at the above scripture. He did not say I have been with you for a long time, and you have not KNOWN THE FATHER, BUT RATHER HE SAID, YOU HAVE NOT KNOWN ME. If He had said you have not known the father, then it would mean he was just representing the father, but since He said you have not known me, then He was revealing His unique identity. He said if you have seen me then you have seen the father. He said indirectly that I am one with the Father. Let’s consider this other scripture as well. Isaiah 9:6 KJV “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Please just consider the above scripture. This was a prophecy about the Messiah. The verse after this clearly reveals this is talking about the Lord Jesus, who would be a king in the lineage of King David. In the verse 6, the scripture said, He would be called, the mighty God, The everlasting Father. Jesus is the mighty God, Hallelujah! He would also be called the everlasting Father. This agrees perfectly with the New Testament statement, that says, if you have seen me, then you have seen the Father. Jesus is God.
THOUGHT: JESUS IS GOD, AND HE IS MIGHTILY WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.
