Jesus Christ

IS GOD
(No matter what the Jehovahs Witnesses, Mormons, Christadelphians, Muslims etc. tell you!)

Jesus Christ IS God!


Introduction
I have been meaning to produce a study-booklet proving that Jesus Christ IS God for some time now: reason being, because the Lord Jesus Christs Deity is under immense attack in these last days before He returns. This booklet is written with those of you in mind who need a clear concise study to give to the cults (Jehovahs Witnesses et al.) and false religions (Islam et al.) It has been produced at COST so that you can purchase in quantity for distribution. I would suggest posting one to EVERY house in the surrounding areas of the Jehovahs Witness Kingdom Halls, Christadelphian Halls and Mormon tabernacles, warning the people about the teachings of these CULTS! Let us take a stand against these FALSE prophets in these last days 2 Tim 3v1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. I also believe the information in this study-booklet will give you enough material to convince these gainsayers - Titus 1v9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. If you love the word of God you will find this study a blessing, make sure you check every reference in your own Bible, and if you have a wide-margin Authorized Version, I would suggest making some notes!!! (If you dont have a wide-margin AV Bible I would highly recommend purchasing one.) Paul warns us about those who do not teach and preach sound doctrine 1 Tim 6v35 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. Those of you who are involved with reaching the lost souls of this world with the Gospel, already know that there are some people who just will not accept THE TRUTH no matter how many times you show/prove to them from Scripture; Pauls warning to Titus should be taken into consideration when dealing with timewasters Titus 3v10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

Once you have read this booklet, pass it on! Too many Christians do NOT stand their ground in the fight, and very few are active in reaching lost souls and encouraging the saints; apathy is a disease that is spreading like wildfire throughout the church today. What we learn, we should pass on to others 2 Tim 2v2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Acts 20v20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house We are living in the last days preceding the Lords return (The Rapture!) One of the greatest signs-of-the-times is apostasy in the church. Many Christians are departing from the faith 1 Tim 4v1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Tim 4v3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; Deception is rampant today and as Christians we are told to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1v3 So what follows is a sound defence for the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ No matter what you have been told, taught or read, know this - Jesus Christ IS God! Whoever tells you He ISNT, is either deceived or a LIAR, its as simple as that! Now that includes ALL the cults (Jehovahs Witnesses (JWs), Mormons, Christadelphians, Seventh Day Adventists, Unitarians, United Pentecostals (Jesus ONLY cult who deny the Trinity), Christian Scientists, Scientologists etc.) and ALL the False Religions (Roman Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, etc.); it even includes the Jews! In order to teach that Jesus Christ is not God, the cults and false religions (as above) either add, subtract or distort i.e. change the true word of God, The Authorized Version Bible (which is perfectly preserved, INERRANT!) They will even try to confuse you by running back to THE Greek (there isnt ONE) rather than believing what the Scriptures say for themselves! Do NOT be fooled by these charlatans! Now this study-booklet is straight-down-the-line and is totally upfront and honest! We will NOT distort the Scriptures or change them to teach or say something they dont, unlike ALL the above!

What follows, is a study proving that Jesus Christ is not only the Son of God, but that He IS God! If you are really interested in finding out THE TRUTH regarding the Deity (God/Godhead) of the Lord Jesus Christ, please make sure you read this study all the way through. You will also find my email and postal address at the back, for you to drop me a line with any comments or questions.

1 John 5v7
First of all, let us look at a verse in the Bible that nearly every cult will remove or distort (check it out for yourself) it is also known as the Johannine Comma (if you would like a study of why it SHOULD BE IN the Bible, drop me a line!) 1 John 5v7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. This causes a great problem for the cults and false religions that want to teach that Jesus is not equal with the Father and that He is not God. Phil 2v5-11 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. What the cults have to do is CHANGE the word of God to teach a LIE! JWs do this all the time with their corrupt New World Translation bible! (The JWs have written their own bible based upon corrupt manuscripts (Westcott and Horts Greek Text) i.e. Codex B-Vaticanus and Codex Aleph-Sinaiticus these manuscripts disagree with each other over 3,000 times in just the Gospels alone; how about that for accuracy!!!) The Mormons have to ADD a whole new book to the Scriptures to teach their own ERRORS i.e. the book of Mormon. 1 John 5v7 categorically states that the Father, the Word (which is Jesus Christ) and the Holy Ghost are ONE! That is what it SAYS without any interpretation or opinion, THE THREE ARE ONE! No wonder the cults change or remove this verse from their man-made-bibles!

I and My Father are One


The Jews in Christs day went to stone the Lord Jesus Christ because He claimed to be God in the flesh John 10v30-33 I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. The Jews understood who Jesus claimed to be, hence why they wanted to stone Him! So just by these few Scriptures, already we can see that God is three separate persons, Father, Son (i.e. the Word note capital W) and Holy Spirit, yet there is ONE GOD! Nobody can fully understand it but the Bible declares this to be the case! It is also very interesting that the word Godhead appears just THREE times in Scripture 1) Acts 17v29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 2) Rom 1v20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 3) Col 2v9 For in him (Jesus Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. It is also very interesting that the words Almighty God appear THREE times in Scripture! 1) Gen 17v1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2) Eze 10v5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

3) Rev 19v15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Gods fingerprints are often seen in threes There is something special about the number THREE! In the RESURRECTION of the Lord Jesus Christ, He was RAISED on the THIRD day (Mat 12v38-40) by the DIVINE THREE in the GODHEAD - God the Father RAISED Him (Gal 1v1), Jesus RAISED Himself (John 2v19-21), and the Holy Spirit RAISED Him (Rom 8v11) (Ask a JW to explain that one and watch him run for cover!!!) The number THREE also shows THE IMPRINT OF THE GODHEAD IN THE

UNIVERSE!

So getting back to our study proving from the word of God, the Scriptures, that Jesus Christ IS God John 1v1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1v14 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. So WHO is the Word? The Word (note the capital W) is Jesus Christ Jesus Christ IS God! 1 John 1v1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; The Word IS Jesus Christ! Rev 19v11-13 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. The Word IS Jesus Christ! 1 Tim 3v16 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. God here IS Jesus Christ! Its crystal clear - Jesus Christ IS God! But what do the cults and false religions do with the above Scriptures? Peter tells us 2 Pet 3v16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable (ALL the cults and false religions!) wrest, as they do also the other

scriptures, unto their own destruction. They wrest (distort) the Scriptures to their own destruction! Regarding adding, subtracting or distorting the word of God you ought to look up the following Scriptures Deut 4v2, Prov 30v5+6, Ecc 3v14, Rev 22v18+19. We do NOT change the Scriptures; the Scriptures SHOULD change us! All we have done so far is looked at Scripture, comparing spiritual with spiritual (1 Cor 2v13-16). Notice we havent changed one single word of the word of God; notice too, that we havent run to any Greek or Hebrew text to try to prove anything! (Do YOU speak Greek or Hebrew?) Next time someone says to you Well in the Greek... Ask him if he SPEAKS Greek? Cults run to the Greek to confuse their listener DONT be fooled by them! God has given us a PERFECT Bible in ENGLISH! English is the most commonly spoken language in all the world and God preserved His word perfect for us today in this most common language! The Authorized Version Bible is 100% absolutely PERFECT and PURE; ALL other versions have ERRORS in them, beware of that fact!

Jesus IS Jehovah God


The JW cult insist that LORD (note all capitals) refers to Jehovah God the Father, while Lord refers to the Son (a lesser god), but the truth of the matter is that the Lord Jesus Christ was often referred to in the Old Testament (OT) as Jehovah God Himself! For example, look at the following verses Zech 12v7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. v8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. v9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. v10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Now how about that, Jehovah God saying that they shall look upon ME whom they have pierced (crucified). Jesus Christ IS Jehovah God! Rev 1v5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the

prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, v6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. v7 Behold, he (Jesus) cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Isa 44v6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Note the LORD for the Father and the LORD for the Son BOTH are God! Both are the First and the Last! Rev 1v17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: v18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. (This is Jesus Christ talking i.e. the First and the Last!) God the Father wasnt crucified, God the Son was! God the Father didnt die, Jesus Christ DIED - I am the first and the last - I am he that liveth, and was dead! Just by comparing Scripture with Scripture you can see clearly that Jesus Christ IS Jehovah GOD.

Let us look at a few comparisons

God the Father


Isa 8v13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. v14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. v15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken. Isa 28v16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Deut 32v3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. v4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

God the Son


1 Pet 2v8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

Rom 9v33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

1 Cor 10v4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

How clear can you get? The LORD God is also Jesus Christ! GOD the Rock is also Jesus Christ, who IS Jehovah GOD!

My Lord and my God!


In John 20v24-28 we read But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. v25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

v26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. v27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. v28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Why? Because Jesus Christ IS God! Now dont you think that if Jesus Christ WASNT God He would have straightened poor old Thomas out immediately? Sure He would have, just like the angels did when someone bowed down to them But Jesus didnt, because He was God in the flesh!

A child is BORN but a son is GIVEN NOTE - The son was NOT born because the Son of God is from everlasting WHY? Because GOD is from EVERLASTING; He has NO beginning!
The Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ was called Divine names in prophecy e.g. Isa 9v6 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. Now only the Lord God Jehovah Himself could satisfy the requirement of these names. The everlasting Father the Son was called that! That was NOT His name, but that is what He was called His name was Jesus Christ! The mighty God the One prophesied to be the Messiah was to be God Himself; God of very God the mighty God! Micah 5v2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he (Jesus Christ) come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Human beings DONT come from everlasting - God does! The JWs and such like, want Jesus Christ to have a beginning so they can say that He is NOT God, hence they corrupt the Bible again to teach their FALSE doctrine! Jesus Christ is eternal and has no beginning! He came to take the body that was prepared for Him - Heb 10v5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: (Note how the NIV PER-version bible has changed this text to ancient times; the NIV is based upon the same manuscripts as the JWs bible! If you would like details about counterfeit bibles like the NIV, NKJV, RSV, ASV, NASV, ESV etc. drop me a line!) John 6v62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? BEFORE??? Yes, Jesus was with the Father BEFORE He came to earth! He is from everlasting!

10

Who is the I AM?


Both God the Father and the Son Jesus Christ are called I AM - Exo 3v14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Yet in John 8v58 we read Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Note again the Jews wanted to stone Jesus for they realised that He equated Himself with God! Note also that Jesus didnt say Before Abraham was I WAS, He said I AM i.e. He claimed an eternal presence! How could Jesus Christ say that He was the I AM? because He IS the I AM Jesus Christ IS God! Now here is an interesting piece of information regarding the italicized words in the Authorized Version Bible The italicized words in the King James Bible are words that were added by the translators (under the guidance of God of course!) to help the reader. This is necessary when translating from one language to another because word meanings and idioms change (idiom = A mode of expression peculiar to a language; peculiarity of expression or phraseology). So, to produce a more readable translation, the King James translators (1604-1611) added certain words to the Bible text. However, to make sure that everyone understood that these words were not in the available manuscripts they set them in italics. (J.Melton) On the whole, you CANNOT translate word-for-word from one language to another WITHOUT adding or subtracting WORDS! The AV shows you ALL the added words that were not in the originals. Do the NKJV, or NIV or NWT (JW bible) do that? NO! They are dishonest bibles! You cant tell WHAT was in the original and what WASNT! The Authorized Version Bible is the ONLY Bible to do this and shows the honesty and integrity of the translation. (Check out your own Bible!) Now look at the following Scriptures from the Book of John and what Jesus says about HIMSELF NOTE the he in italics (i.e. NOT in the originals!!!) John 8v24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 8v28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 9v9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. John 13v19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

11

John 18v5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. John 18v6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. John 18v8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: Therefore Jesus is claiming the I AM title of God, why? Because Jesus Christ IS God according to Scripture! For all of you who enjoy Biblical-numerics note also the term I AM he occurs SEVEN times (i.e. perfection/completion). (If you would like more details on number patterns and the significance of Biblicalnumbers drop me a line). The AV Bible is an incredible book, there is none like it! Jesus Christ claimed things for Himself that no man could claim unless He was claiming to be God! He didnt claim to be a truth, He claimed to be THE truth; He didnt claim to be a way, He claimed to be THE way now thats quite a statement to make! That means according to Jesus Christ Himself, there is NO OTHER WAY! Therefore Roman Catholicism, Islam or any of the cults CANNOT SAVE YOU, ONLY Jesus Christ can! Think about that long and hard, for if you do not come THROUGH Christ, you will land up in Hell, no matter what other way you have taken! Its a narrow road folks; make sure you are on it! Mat 7v13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: v14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. v15 Beware of false prophets, (JWs, Mormons etc.) which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

12

ONLY God is the FIRST and the LAST, the BEGINNING and the END, the ALPHA and the OMEGA!
Isa 44v6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isa 48v12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. (Read in from Rev 1v5-7!!!) Rev 1v8 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. (Jesus) Rev 1v11 Saying, I am (Jesus) Alpha and Omega, the first and the last Rev 1v17 And when I saw him, (Jesus) I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: Rev 2v8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; (Jesus) Rev 22v13 I am (Jesus) Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

WORSHIP ONLY GOD!


Exo 34v14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Yet we read in Heb 1v6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten (Jesus) into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. (Jesus) Luke 4v8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. We are told in the Scriptures to worship ONLY God! When men bowed down and worshipped an angel, that angel told them to GET UP!!! Rev 22v8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. v9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship

13

God. (Yet we have just read in Heb 1v6 that the angels worship Him! (Jesus Christ)) Rev 19v10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. But when they worshipped Jesus Christ, He let them! Why? Because He (Jesus Christ) IS God! Mat 2v11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. Not once in Scripture are you told to worship Mary! Mat 28v9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Did Jesus rebuke them??? v10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. He let them worship Him! Mark 5v6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, Luke 24v52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: John 9v38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. Rev 5v11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; v12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. v13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. v14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Not once in Scripture do we find the Lord Jesus Christ refusing worship, yet we are told ONLY to worship God, hence Jesus Christ IS God! (Unless you are a Bible rejector/corrector of course!) 14

WHO CAN FORGIVE SINS BUT GOD!


Mark 2v5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But I thought ONLY God could forgive sins? EXACTLY! Jesus Christ IS God! What did they say when they heard Jesus say thy sins be forgiven thee? Mark 2v7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? They knew ONLY God could forgive sins, yet Jesus Christ did! Why? Have a guess! Because Jesus Christ IS God! Here is another comparison

God the Father


Ps 32v5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. Isa 43v16 Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Isa 43v25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Ps 130v3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? v4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

God the Son


Luke 5v20 And when he (Jesus) saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. v24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he (Jesus) said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. Luke 7v48 And he (Jesus) said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. v49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

ONLY God can forgive your sins! Jesus Christ forgives sins because He IS God! Now can you see what heretics these cults are and what lies they teach? The whole focal point in this entire universe is The Lord Jesus Christ 1 John 5v12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. You will never make it without Him!

15

1 John 2v22 Who is a liar (JWs, Mormons, Christadelphians etc.) but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. v23 Whosoever denieth the Son, (ALL the cults and false religions) the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. So be very careful who you listen to and who you follow! The man-made cults like the JWs, Mormons, Christadelphians, Unitarians etc. will lead you to HELL if you follow them (and most of them dont even believe in Hell!) The Bible warns us about being seduced by these ANTI-Christian sects 1 John 2v26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. This is what cults do, they SEDUCE you! 1 John 3v7 let no man deceive you: 2 John 1v7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Anyone who denies that Jesus Christ is NOT God or that He was not God in the flesh is ANTI-Christ and a liar - they are trying to seduce you! Beware!!! Submit to the word of God, the Authorized Version Bible and you wont go wrong! Dont follow a man or an organisation! Dont be seduced by the Watchtower or Awake cult magazines; they are only trying to deceive you! The Christadelphians talk a lot about the Bible but they are Bible rejectors and distorters. They will deny that Jesus Christ IS God, tell you that there is NO Hell and will run to THE Greek to try to prove it! But they dont tell you which Greek Text they are running to, from the many that are available! They are liars and seducers, BEWARE! Wake up to reality and follow the Lord Jesus Christ and His word! You really want the TRUTH? How about this for a verse Eph 4v21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: Jesus Christ IS God! The Bible clearly teaches that, cults and false religions DONT! Now you must decide whether you are going to follow the Lord Jesus Christ i.e. He is THE way, THE truth, THE life, OR, you are going to put your faith and trust in someone or something that will certainly lead you astray such as the cults/false religions. Do that, and you will NEVER see Heaven, but instead you will be led down the broad-way that leadeth to destruction i.e. HELL! Let me tell-it-as-it-really-is! You want the truth; Im giving you the truth!

I have written to and had debates with numerous JWs, Mormons, Unitarians, Christadelphians, Roman Catholics, Muslims etc. presenting THE TRUTH and showing them the ERRORS in their own sacred books and literature! Very few have ever written back or tried to sustain an argument! I wonder why? Because TRUTH IS TRUTH! Youll never beat TRUTH, and they CANT!!! They DENY the TRUTH! Back to our study

Only GOD is the Creator!


Obviously if you believe in evolution youre just a monkey!!! Evolution is a fairytale for grown-ups! No sane, rational, logical, intelligent human being would believe in something so ridiculous! To think that some people really believe that hydrogen is a colourless, odourless gas, which given enough time, turns into people is too idiotic for words! I mean, how can something, come from NOTHING!!! If you are a follower/admirer of those two monkey-men Dawkins and Hawking I suggest you jump ship as their theories are sinking deep into the abyss get out while you can! The fossils still say NO and they have never found a transitional fossil of a human in the half-stage from the millions of fossils THAT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE all around the world; doesnt that tell you something? If evolution were true there should be millions of transitional fossils! I think someone is trying to make a monkey out of you! Let us leave the Hawking and Dawkins DEAD delusions and their fairy-tales, and get back to reality This Universe was CREATED by God FACT! Like it or lump it, that is the TRUTH of it! Gen 1v1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Isa 44v24 Thus saith the LORD, (God the Father) thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD (Father) that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; (God the Father) Yet we read in the Scriptures that Jesus Christ IS the Creator John 1v1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. v2 The same was in the beginning with God.

17

v3 All things were made by him (Jesus Christ); and without him was not any thing made that was made. Col 1v16 For by him (Jesus Christ) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Who??? Read on! v17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Who??? Read on!!! v18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Who is the head of the body, the church, the firstborn from the dead? JESUS CHRIST! v19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; - IN Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ IS the Creator God! v20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Who shed His blood on the cross for your sins? Jesus Christ! Heb 3v4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. Jesus Christ IS God!

God the Father even calls His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, GOD!
Heb 1v8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, (WHO? GOD!!!) is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. v9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. v10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: Jesus Christ IS the Creator! Now I am not interested in what you think or anybody thinks regarding the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ! I want to know the TRUTH and so far we have looked at ample Scriptures, documenting factual evidence from the Scriptures (note NOBODYS opinions!) that Jesus Christ IS God! Now you either believe the word of God or you dont, and if you DONT, its at YOUR peril! Jesus said in John 5v39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

18

Acts 18v28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ. 1 Thes 2v13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. Is the word of God your FINAL AUTHORITY on all matters of faith and practice? If not, what is - your opinion? Are you willing to risk putting your opinions, your church traditions or your organisation above or on par with the word of God? Dont be so foolish! What emphasis does GOD put on His word? Ps 138v2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: FOR THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME. It is what God says that really matters! Who on earth would trust an organisation (i.e. the JW Watchtower) to tell you the truth about Gods word? The Watchtower really believes that it is the prophet of God on earth; what an absurd thought that is, who would be brainwashed into believing something so stupid? The Satanic Watchtower Organisation is set up to deceive as many people as possible. It has broken up homes and marriages and wants to control your mind; YOUR LIFE! If youre IN IT GET OUT OF IT!!! You will ONLY find liberty and peace in Jesus Christ alone Luke 4v18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, (are YOU a captive in a cult?) and recovering of sight to the blind, (ALL cults/false religions have blinded their followers) to set at liberty them that are bruised, (are YOU bruised and hurt?) Jesus said Mat 11v28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Think upon the following verses 2 Cor 3v17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Gal 2v4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: (cult members are in bondage imagine dictating to someone that you cant have a blood transfusion to save your life or the life of a family member! That is what the JWs do, that is what the Watchtower teaches you are NOT allowed a blood transfusion under any circumstance! If you dont agree to their teachings and doctrines you are dis-fellowshipped!) There is NO liberty in a CULT!

19

v5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. True liberty is ONLY found in the Lord Jesus Christ! Gal 5v1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Read 2 Peter chapter 2 all the way through! Back to our study

Who is the Saviour? God the Father


Isa 43v3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Isa 43v11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. Isa 45v15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. Isa 45v21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Isa 49v26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. Isa 60v16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

God the Son


Luke 2v11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. John 4v42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. Phil 3v20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 1 Tim 2v3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 1 Tim 4v10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 2 Tim 1v10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Titus 1v3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; Titus 1v4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and

20

Hos 13v4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. Titus 2v10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. Titus 2v13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 1 John 4v14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

So we see from the OT, God the Father is the Saviour and in the NT, GOD the Son is the Saviour! Jesus Christ IS God!

ONLY God is ALL Knowing!


Omniscience is one of the exclusive prerogatives (a right or privilege to a peculiar individual) of Deity! ONLY God can read the hearts of His creatures!

God the Father


Job 42v1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said, v2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. 1 Chron 28v9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. Ps 94v11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

God the Son


Luke 5v22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts? Luke 6v8 But he (Jesus) knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. Luke 9v46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. v47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, Luke 11v16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. v17 But he, (Jesus) knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every

21

Ps 139v1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. v2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 1 Sam 16v7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1 Kings 8v28 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day: v39 Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)

kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. John 1v47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! v48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. v49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. Mat 9v4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? John 2v24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, v25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man. Acts 1v24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, (Jesus) which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, John 16v30 Now are we sure that thou (Jesus) knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. John 21v17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, (Jesus) thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

22

Can any honest person, from the above comparison, fail to see that the Jehovah God of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New Testament? Jesus IS Jehovah! Jesus Christ IS God!

Who is the Holy One? God the Father


2 Kings 19v22 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel. Ps 89v18 For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king. Isa 31v1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD! Hos 11v9 I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city. Hab 1v12 Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.

God the Son


Mark 1v24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. Acts 2v27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One (Jesus) to see corruption. Acts 3v14 But ye denied the Holy One (Jesus) and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;

23

Only God can control the Elements/Weather! God the Father


Ps 89v8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? v9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them. Ps 107v28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. v29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

God the Son


Mark 4v37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. v39 And he (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mat 14v24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. v25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

GOD the Father is the husband of His people in the OT GOD the Son is the husband of His people in the NT!
Isa 54v5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. Jer 3v14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: Jer 31v32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 2 Cor 11v2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. Mat 25v10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. John 3v29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. v30 He must increase, but I must decrease. Rev 19v7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath

24

made herself ready. v9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Name or names?
Mat 28v19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: If Jesus Christ wasnt God, why did He include Himself in the Holy Trinity? John 10v30 I and my Father are one. So just by comparing Scripture with Scripture and leaving it in its context i.e. NOT changing it at all, it is an ABSOLUTE FACT that the Bible declares that Jesus Christ IS God! If the cults say he isnt, they MUST distort/pervert/corrupt the word of God, which they do all the time; 2 Cor 2v17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. ALL the cults and false religions corrupt the word of God! I have heard people say, Well I cant understand the Trinity, yet no-one can fully understand the Trinity; in fact, how can you understand God as a unity YOU CANT! i.e. Eph 1v20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, v21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: v22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, v23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. How can you understand God? Job 11v7 Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? Rom 11v33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! Isa 40v18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? v25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

25

1 Cor 2v14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Of course man CANNOT fully understand GOD! But God has given us a Book where we can get to know Him; yet today, most people do NOT read or study the Holy Scriptures. 2 Tim 2v15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (In fact, this is the ONLY Scripture that tells you to study the Bible itself! You will find it taken out of every other Bible version). Somebody (Satan) doesnt want you to STUDY the Bible, hence we have an influx of modern bible PER-versions flooding the market every year; these Satanic bible PER-versions include the NIV, (look up in the NIV who killed Goliath in 2 Sam 21v19 then check it out in the AV!) NASB, NKJV, GNB, ESV, RSV, ASV, etc.

Who created man?


Gen 1v26 And God said, Let us (the Trinity i.e. Father, Son and Holy Spirit) make man in our (the Trinity) image, after our (the Trinity) likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Now the JWs will tell you that the us and our of this verse is talking about the angels, but that shows you how immature these cults are when it comes to interpreting the Scriptures; the JWs will twist and distort any Scripture that doesnt fit in with their man-made doctrines! Let us see what image we are created after, see the next verse v27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (NOT in the image of angels!) Gen 5v1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Gen 3v22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, (the Trinity) to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Gen 11v7 Go to, let us (the Trinity) go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. Another ludicrous statement I have heard is that the doctrine of the Trinity is Roman Catholic! I guess it was one of the cults that started this rumour! The doctrine of the Trinity (i.e. ONE God yet THREE separate persons - God the Father, God the Son and

26

God the Holy Spirit) is a doctrine that SCRIPTURE teaches! The cults will dream up anything to get you away from THE TRUTH! Note this verse - Dan 10v21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth...That is what we are dealing with, THE TRUTH of Scripture, not some Watchtower Organisation dreaming up fairy-tales to tell their boys and girls who cant read the Kings English (KING James that is!!! KJV.)

If Christ isnt God it would be idolatry to address Him in prayer along with God the Father!
Yet that is exactly what Paul does, addresses the Lord Jesus Christ Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. 2 Thes 2v16+17 And what about Stephen in his prayer addressing God And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts 7v59+60 Stephen called upon God and said Lord Jesus! Why? Because Jesus Christ IS God!

It is ONLY God who truly hears and answers our prayers!


Read Pauls following account; he besought the Lord (God) three times and receives an answer from WHOM? (Jesus Christ) 2 Cor 12v7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. v8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. v9 And he said (Jesus) unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Jesus answers Pauls prayer because Jesus Christ IS God! It is ONLY God who hears and answers our prayers, that is why we pray to the Lord Jesus Christ 1 Cor 1v2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: Rom 10v13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved. Praying to saints (as the Roman Catholics do) or elephants (as the Hindus do) or to Allah (as Muslims do) does NO GOOD whatsoever! There is ONE true God (yet three separate persons i.e. Father, Son and Holy Spirit) see table 1 on the Trinity.

27

The Bible says that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; Phil 2v10 Note EVERY KNEE! That includes every false god of every cult and religion, including the Devil himself they will ALL bow the knee to GOD the Son! Rev 5v12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb (The Lord Jesus Christ God the Son) that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. v13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne (God the Father), and unto the Lamb (The Lord Jesus Christ God the Son) for ever and ever. v14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him (Jesus Christ) that liveth for ever and ever.

The issues of LIFE and DEATH are with God alone!


Jesus Christ assumes Divine Authority over DEATH! He said to the widows son Luke 7v14 And he (Jesus) came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he (Jesus) said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. v15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. Jesus said to DEAD Lazarus John 11v43 And when he (Jesus) thus had spoken, he (Jesus) cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. v44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. John 5v21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. WHY? Because Jesus Christ IS Jehovah God!

Only God is unchangeable!


Mal 3v6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. James 1v17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Heb 13v8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. There is just so much conclusive evidence from the Scriptures proving Jesus Christ IS God!

28

(We have only looked at some of the most salient (most important) Scriptures, there are plenty more!) Acts 20v28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he (GOD i.e. Jesus) hath purchased with his own blood. God the Father never purchased the church with His own Blood; God the Son did! 1 John 5v20 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. Did you get that? even in his Son

Jesus Christ. This is the true God

John 5v23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. (Which cults do NOT do because they REJECT the TRUTH of the Scriptures!) He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 1 John 2v23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. John 8v24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Absolute proof that Jesus Christ IS God! Enough said!!! The following tables will also drive home with absolute certainty that Jesus Christ IS God!

Eph 4v10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.

Phil 2v9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: v10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; Acts 4v12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Col 1v18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things

This is the true God, and eternal life. Mat 23v37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Mat 1v21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 1 Tim 1v15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Heb 5v8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; v9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 2 Pet 1v11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Acts 4v12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Titus 2v13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; John 1v4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Ps 91v4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Isa 43v25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Num 14v18 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression Ps 107v29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Ps 119v11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Ps 23v1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 Tim 1v10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Heb 2v14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; v15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 1 John 1v7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

So in conclusion
You either believe the Bible or you dont; you cant just choose what bits you agree with and leave the rest. The cults like the JWs will change everything and anything to suit the teachings of their false organisation: they have written their own CORRUPT translation called the New World Translation based upon the most corrupt manuscripts that are known to man!!! All the cults and false religions attack the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; they either reduce Him to a good teacher, a prophet or a lesser god. They are ALL liars and deceivers DO NOT BE BEGUILED BY THEM! Take heed to the warning of Peter 2 Pet 2v1 But there were false prophets (JWs) also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers (Mormons) among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, (Christadelphians) even denying the Lord that bought them, (Unitarians) and bring upon themselves swift destruction (Roman Catholics). Read Rev 17 to see the end of Roman Catholicism and read Rev 20v15 to see the final destination of all those who reject Jesus Christ (Islamists/Muslims etc.) as their Lord and Saviour. If you are or have been a member of any cult or false religion GET OUT and STAY OUT - NOW! 2 Cor 6v17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, v18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Find a church that teaches and preaches from the Authorized Version Bible, NOT some bible-PERversion like the NIV, NKJV etc. Read the Bible, study the Bible, memorise the Bible and LIVE the Bible! We are living in the very last days before the Lord Jesus Christs return (the Rapture) make sure you are living and working for Him, and whatever you do, reach the lost souls of this world with the Gospel! If you have read this and you are not a Christian or not sure whether you are a Christian, YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU ARE SAVED! - 1 John 5v13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; THAT YE MAY KNOW THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5v20 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. You must realise that you are a sinner and it is ONLY the Lord Jesus Christ who can forgive you! He died for you, was buried and rose again the third day. He took your

35

sin and died in your place so you could be made the righteousness of God 2 Cor 5v21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 1 John 3v5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 1 Tim 1v15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. You must also know this, YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF OR WORK FOR YOUR SALVATION (every cult and false religion teaches you have to WORK to be saved) Eph 2v8+9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Rom 4v5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Titus 3v5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Gal 3v10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. v11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. v12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. v13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: v14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Rom 10v4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Gal 3v21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

36

26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Rom 7v4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ Confess your sins to the Lord Jesus and ask Him to forgive you! Ask Him to come and live within you and lead and guide you from this moment on! NOW start living for Him in everything you do! - 1 Cor 10v31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Col 3v17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Col 3v23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
And to finish with

One day you and I shall stand before Jesus Christ and have to give an account of our life to Him! Mat 28v18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. John 5v22+27 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Acts 17v31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Dont let the cults and false religions deceive you any longer, turn to the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart and ask Him to save you before its too late! I hope and pray this study has been a challenge and a blessing to you.

You have enough ammunition in this booklet to deal with every single cult and false religion! I would also suggest that you do some research into Bible versions; as cults, false religions and also some weak and shallow Christians think that the NIV, NKJV, NASB, RSV, ASV, JND, GNB etc. are PURE Bibles, when they are nothing more than COUNTERFEITS of the TRUE word of God, the Authorized Version!
