KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 12:44 KJV “Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.”
Our Lord Jesus never hid His true identity yet many people continued to confuse themselves about who He was. In our key scripture He said, anyone who believed in Him, has not just believed in Him, but in the Father who sent Him. This statement could clearly be explained as, claiming oneness with the Father. Unfortunately, many interpreted this as, since He was sent by the Father, then, He is only a representative of His Father. Therefore, He is inferior to the Father or even was created by the Father.
We learned in one of our studies that, to have a good interpretation of the bible, we must look at a broad presentation of the scriptures for one to come to a full understanding of what the scripture had to say on any particular subject.
What is the original revelation of Jesus? John 1:1 says, ” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This verse shows us that Jesus is the eternal word of God. It is clarified in the fourteenth verse as follows. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” As the word of God, He became flesh or took on a human body. Please note that as the word of God, He was never created. In fact, the scriptures say He is God., Every person is one with His word. This is who Jesus is.
The Lord Jesus said it plainly. If you believed in Him, you have believed on the Father. Jesus is one with the Father He is the only one who can truly save you from your sin. Act 4:12 KJV “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Indeed, to believe in Him is to believe in the God of all creation. God has revealed Himself as three separate persons, yet these persons are one, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Let’s consider the following verse. Matt 28:19 ” Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: He did not say ,in the names, but name, singular.
Thank you, heavenly father, for giving us your only begotten Son. Thank you for enlightening my eyes to see my Lord Jesus. as He really is the God of the universe.
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.”
1 John 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.”
