JESUS IS ALMIGHTY GOD!
By David J. Stewart
1st Timothy 3:16 says,
“...God was manifest in the flesh...”
Jeremiah 32:18, “Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name.”
The Bible teaches from Genesis to Revelation that Jesus was born into the world as the MANIFESTATION (revealing) of God to the world. The truthful Biblical doctrine that Jesus is almighty God is known as Christ's “deity.” Literally, the GODHEAD became flesh and walked the earth in the form of a man. Jesus was 100% man and 100% God. Now God is holy and is a Spirit (John 4:24). As such, man cannot fellowship with God the Father. That's why the Father sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to bridge that gap. As human beings we can communicate with the man Christ Jesus, and then as deity Jesus can communicate with God the Father on our behalf. 1st Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
Man could not enter into a union with God, but as God, Jesus can, and God could not enter into a union with man, but as man, Jesus can. So we contact the Man, Christ Jesus, and the Father contacts the God, Christ Jesus; hence, man contacts God through His Counsellor, and our Saviour, the God-man, Christ Jesus.

Here are some excellent MP3 sermons on the three Persons of the GODHEAD by Pastor Jeff Owens...
The Doctrine Of The Son | The Doctrine Of The Father | The Doctrine Of The Holy Spirit (2)
There is nothing more important to Christianity than the fundamentals of the Bible (MP3, Dr. Owens)—the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST. The doctrine of Christ includes the physical blood of Jesus Christ, the literal virgin birth, Christ's deity as almighty God, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His sinless life, et cetera.
Only God Is Entitled To Receive WORSHIP, and Jesus Received Worship
Only Jesus accepted the worship of others (Matthew 8:2), because Jesus is worthy of man's WORSHIP! Jesus is worthy of every creatures worship! Only God Almighty is entitled to receive worship. The Bible teaches that God will NOT share His glory with another (Isaiah 42:8). If Jesus weren't Almighty God, then He couldn't have received the worship of so many people (Matthew 9:18;14:33;15:25;18:26;20:20;28:9). Jesus gladly received worship from people, as God Almighty is entitled to.

Notice once again that all modern corrupt Bible versions remove every mention of the word “worship” concerning the Lord Jesus Christ, changing the word “worship” to a mere “knelt.” It is deception of the worst kind. Satan tried to take away our Bibles, but failed. Then Satan tried to cause us to doubt the Bible, as he did Eve; but failed again. Now Satan is changing our Bibles, trying to deceive us again. Sadly, most people have been woefully deceived. The New International Version is dangerous, as are all the other modern perversions of the Scriptures. Only the King James Bible is trustworthy.
The Word Of God Became Incarnate (Flesh) In Jesus The Man
Here is the strongest evidence from the Scriptures of Christ's deity...
John 1:1-3 and 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. ... 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.”
Jesus is the Word incarnate. God's Word is not merely a book with white pages and black ink; but rather, God's Words are living, as we read in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” God Words are alive (quickened) because God is alive. The Bible contains over 7,000 promises (many repeated for emphasis) from God, some unconditional and many conditional.
If a man authors a book and then dies, future readers may feel like they've personally known the author after reading his book. However, the author (Holy Spirit) of the Bible is alive forevermore!!! This is why Jesus said in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” There you have it... the Words of the Bible are spirit, that is, given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2nd Timothy 3:16), and they are life!!!
Psalms 33:11, “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.” That is precious to me, that is, the Bible is “THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART” to all generations. When we read, search, memorize and study the Bible, we are learning the thoughts of God our Creator. The next time you get discouraged, open your King James Bible and look for God's THOUGHTS on the matter, whatever your needs or problems may be. This is why we are commanded wonderfully in Philippians 4:5, “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” Jesus' mindset was that of continually thinking about others.
Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely Name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
There is no name in earth or Heav’n above,
That we should give such honor and such love
As the blessed Name, let us all acclaim,
That wondrous, glorious Name of Jesus.
JESUS IS GOD... ALMIGHTY GOD!!! The deity of Jesus Christ is the most denied doctrine in this world by unbelievers. They vehemently hate the very idea that Jesus was born upon the earth as God incarnate (in the flesh).
A “doctrine” is simply a teaching. Doctrines are composed of words. Thus words are critically important. The great theological battles and debates of our generation are being fought over the meaning of words, whether it be the word “repentance” or the word “inspired,” the spiritual battle is raging.
God deliver us from deeper-life theologians who can quote the Bible, dissect it and expound upon it, but they never share the gospel with their neighbors and let the world die and go to Hell. On my website ministry, I aim to encourage everyone to be a soul-winner. Proverbs 11:30 says, “He that winneth souls is wise.” That's one Scripture that you won't hear often from the intelligencia crowd.
John 1:1-2 and 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. ...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.”
The word “Godhead” is found in Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9 in the King James Bible. All modern corrupt Bible versions completely remove this critical word, “Godhead.” Satan wants to deceive you concerning the Godhead. The word “Trinity” may not be in the Bible, but the word “Godhead” most certainly is. Why would anyone remove this word from the Bible? It's because the Devil wants to deceive you.
Colossians 2:9 says, “...For in him [Jesus] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
Only God Can FORGIVE Sin, and Jesus Forgave Sin
Jesus forgave sin as only God can do. Wicked Catholic priests and evil Lutheran ministers sinfully claim the power to forgive people's sins. You'll burn in Hell if you trust men to forgive your sins. You'd better seek forgiveness from the God-man, Christ Jesus, Who has the nail-scared hands and feet. Only in Jesus' name can anyone's sins be forgiven, for it was Christ Who died for OUR SINS. Even the wicked Pharisees who sought to kill Jesus weren't so wicked as to think that they could forgive men's sins...
Mark 2:7, “Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?”
As the Bible says, only God can forgive sins, and Jesus is God!!! In Matthew 9:2-3 we read that Jesus mercifully forgave a man's sins and healed him of a horrible disability...
Matthew 9:2-3, “And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.”
Notice that the unbelieving Scribes accused the Lord of blasphemy for claiming the power to forgive men's sins. Ah, but Jesus was God in the flesh and did indeed have all the power of Heaven to forgive sin as only God can. Jesus did NOT give up His deity when He came to the earth; but rather, He humbled Himself as a suffering and obedient servant (Hebrews 5:8; Philippians 2:8).
Only Jesus forgave sin in the Bible (Matthew 9:2). Only God Almighty can forgive sin.
Jesus Is The I AM (God almighty)
Jesus is the I AM of Exodus 3:14...
Exodus 3:14, “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.”
The Jews picked up stones to kill Jesus when He made the following claim...
John 8:58, “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
As you just read, Jesus directly claimed to be the I AM... God almighty!!! Amen and amen!!!
Jesus is God Almighty, which He claims to be in Revelation 1:8...
Revelation 1:8, “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 claimed to be God in John 10:33...
John 10:33 says, “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.”
“Makest Thyself God...”
Search the Scriptures!
In John 5:39 Jesus commanded, “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me.” Amen! The Bible testifies of Jesus. Revelation 19:10, “...worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Here we are commanded to worship God; not the Devil nor the Antichrist. Alice Bailey's mentor was Helen Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891), who stated in her writings:
“Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the 'Adversary' in his lowest aspect — both of which are reflected in our Ego,” (The Secret Doctrine II; pg. 162).
Blavatsky even published a magazine in London in 1887 called, LUCIFER. She writes in one of her works that:
“Satan is the god of our planet, and the only god,”
SOURCE: The Secret Doctrine II; pg. 234
This is the truth behind the entire New Age Movement. Alice Bailey started a publishing house in 1922 called THE LUCIFER TRUST. A year later due to public outrage it was renamed LUCIS TRUST, and is the spiritual foundation of the United Nations today.
"No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation." —David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
Satan can only deceive people who are woefully ignorant of the Words of God. If you SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES for the answers as Jesus commanded, then you will be prepared to ward off demonic attacks against your faith. Ephesians 6:17 tells us that the Bible is our sword, our weapon to fight the Devil. Even Jesus Christ Himself used the Scriptures to defeat Satan when he was tempted in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-10). If Jesus needed to use the Scriptures, then why are churchgoers today buying all the New York Time's books on the Best Seller List? Max Lucado has written 2 books per year for over the past 22 years; and he promotes ecumenical unity between Catholics and Protestants, between unbelievers and believers. The Bible teaches for us to divide over truth, instead of uniting by error (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17).
I hope and pray that those who read this article will search the Scriptures concerning the Doctrine of Christ, and learn exactly Who our Lord Jesus Christ really is, because you'll be deceived if you don't. Mark 13:22, “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” Did you read that... TO SEDUCE, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, EVEN THE ELECT. The elect simply refers to every born-again Christian. The Bible teaches that times will become so deceptive that even Christians would be seduced if it weren't for the Holy Spirit of God that seals (Ephesians 1:13), protects (John 10:28) and guides (John 16:13) them into all truth. Thank God for His wonderful Holy Spirit and the precious Words of God.
The doctor says, “I practice medicine.” The attorney says, “I practice law.” The Christian says, “I practice Christ!”
Jesus Is Almighty God
If you get a King James Bible and study its truths as a born-again believer, then you will see the truth as John 16:13 promises. You will see the divine truth that Jesus is almighty God, and not just “a god” as JW's falsely claim. Only the Lord Jesus Christ has the power to forgive men's sins. Only Jesus is worthy of worship and never tried to stop anyone from worshipping Him in the Bible. Amen! WORSHIP JESUS, for He is worthy! Wise men still seek Him today and WORSHIP Him!!! Matthew 2:2, “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Notice also that the wise men followed the holy Scriptures and not the star. The Bible, Daniel's prophecy, told the Chaldean scholars in Babylon about the star, and then they followed it because they were wise, wanting to bless and worship the prophesied Saviour, Christ the Lord!
There are thousands of websites promoting mind, body and spirit teachings that are completely lacking of the Doctrine of Christ. They are websites published by heathens, psychologists, witches and New Agers. They are all Christ-rejecters, although they may vaguely mention some teachings of Christ to deceive others. Many churches today have fallen hook, line and sinker into the Devil's trap of allowing psychologists to enter the pulpit. Modern psychology is of the Devil.
I love the promises of God, for they are the power of God in a believer's life. It is the promise of God by which we are saved (2nd Peter 1:4). Romans 10:13 is a promise that WHOSOEVER calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus shall be saved. That is the same promise found in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Eternal life is a PROMISE from God to those who come to Him for forgiveness of sins by way of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Salvation is not a born-again experience nor a feeling that one has been born-again; but rather, being born-again is a miracle of God, where God honors His promise to save those who believe (John 1:12; 20:31).
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

(needful Windows Media sermons by Pastor Jeff Owens)
Here's a wonderful poem authored by Pastor Danny Castle about the three stages of life; It's called “NO ROOM FOR JESUS” . . .
NO ROOM FOR JESUS...
No room for Jesus when I'm young and free,
No time for the church, or a Bible for me;
No room for Jesus when I'm a grown man,
I'm busy making a living, doing the best I can.
No room for Jesus, when I'm old and gray,
I've lived good enough, I'll make it my way;
Now as the time comes to die for me,
only it is now I am beginning to see,
When at Heaven's gates I stand and plea:
What a fool I've been, they'll be no room for me.
