KEY SCRIPTURE John 8:19 KJV” Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
The Lord discussed with His disciples in John chapter 14 about going to the Father. Thomas asked we do not know where you are going, how can we know the way? He said He is the way, the truth and the life…” After this answer He added the following:” If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. John 14:7. The Lord Jesus clearly stated that anyone who sees him, has seen the Father. The Lord was not just a representative of the Father. He was really one with the Father John 10:30. The Lord Jesus was referring to His deity.
We can show from the scriptures, how Jesus is one with the Father.
We would consider a few verses of scripture.
Isa 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”. This verse refers to Jesus, yet one of His name is everlasting Father as well as the mighty God.
2. 1 Timothy 3:16
1Tim 3:16 KJV” 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”. In this verse we also see Jesus as God, making Him one with the Father.
1Jn 5:20 KJV” And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.” This is the true God, and eternal life.”
The Son is also God because the bible reveals God as three persons in one. Mat 28:19 KJV “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: The scripture says baptize in the name, not names. This is one God but three distinct persons.
In the light of all the above verses we see the Son is one with the Father. Jesus had the same glory with the Father from the beginning, although He laid it down according to Philippians 2:6,7. Joh 17:5 KJV “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” The Son and the father had the same glory from the beginning of time.
Jesus is God, I give Him the glory and honour, He has the same glory with the Father. He now knows all things, sees all things and is all mighty. He will come again to judge all men.
THOUGHT: TO SEE THE SON, IS TO SEE THE FATHER”
2 Corinth 13:14 KJV The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
Rev 1:8 KJV “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.”
