Yes! He is God.


English: Jesus Christ - detail from Deesis mos...

I grew up going to the kingdom hall. My entire family used to be Jehovah’s Witnesses. So the very first question I asked the Jesus when I got saved was this – “Are You God?”

His answer was a resounding “yes!” From the day he showed me John chapter 1, it has remained one of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible.

The bible talks about the beginning. The beginning of Genesis 1:1 – when God created the heaven and earth. It is not talking about the beginning of God – because God has no beginning. Therefore since God has no beginning but exist from eternity to eternity and the word was with Him in eternity the ‘Word’ (Jesus) could not have been created.

In fact the bible says, the ‘Word’ was with and the ‘Word’ was God. This ‘Word’ stepped out of eternity into time in the person of Jesus – the Christ – the Son of the living God – which happens to be a technical term used for Jesus. He has always been known as the “Eternal Son of God” – John 17:7, 24 says – “Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.” Furthermore, Hebrews 1:3 tells us that “He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.”

Finally, the scripture says through Him all things were made and without him was not anything made that was made. This sounds like Jesus played an active role in the creation of the world. Only God has the power to create .

So who is this word?

He comes out of eternity into time

He is with God

He is God

He is co-creator

He is equal with God

He is Jesus

The day I got an understanding of this – I collected all the New World Translation bibles in our home, all the Watchtowers , and Song Books and the little book called The greatest teacher and threw them away. Few months later my mother and two younger sisters got saved? We need a revelation of the real Jesus – the Jesus of the Bible – not some fake Jesus, and some fake bible that has stripped Him of His deity.

Jesus is in deed God, not an angel or a created being… He is God!
