presented to you the scriptures that you may have a clear
conception of who Jesus really is because there exist today
beliefs about "another Jesus" that is different from the Jesus
preached by the Apostles.
If what you
believe in Jesus Christ is not in accordance with what is
clearly written in the Holy Bible, then, you may have come
to believe "another Jesus. As the snake fooled Eve, you may
have been cleverly tricked or deceived to believe another
Jesus ( 2 Cor. 11:3-4).
clever trick the snake fooled Eve. I'm afraid that your
minds might be polluted, too. You might leave the
simplicity and purity which is in Christ. Someone
might come preaching about another Jesus who is
different from the Jesus we preached to you. You
welcome a different kind of spirit that you did not
receive . How can you put up so easily with a gospel
that is different from the first one you accepted? (2
Corinthians 11:3-4, IE-NT)
You may have
listened to false teachings which may have subtly and
stealthily introduced, these are heretical doctrines or
teachings that are contrary to what Jesus taught and written
about by the His Apostles and disciples.
BUT ALSO [in
those days] there arose false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among yourselves,
who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical
doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and
disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon
themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1-2, AMP)
simple and pure belief in the "true Jesus" is indeed of
utmost importance in the attainment of salvation and eternal
life. We should come to believe like the Apostles and
by having the knowledge of the truth about the
Son of God, we can no longer be misled into believing what
is false. As what Apostle Paul also said:
13. until finally we all
believe alike about our salvation and about our Savior,
God's Son, and all become full-grown in the
Lord--yes, to the point of being filled full with
14. Then we will no longer
be like children, forever changing our minds about what
we believe because someone has told us something
different, or has cleverly lied to us and made the lie
sound like the truth. (Eph. 4:13-14 Living
firmly believe the
testimonies of the Apostles about the "true Jesus" that will
lead us to salvation and eternal life. Do not let strange
teachings, man-made teachings that are not written in the
Bible, lead us to the wrong
way―that is to eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not
let all kinds of strange teachings lead you into the
wrong way. . . . . . (Hebrews 13:8-9, NCV)
Based on the
scriptural study we have just completed, let us clarify the
belief about the True Jesus Christ that it may become clear
and meaningful to us.
The Simple And Pure Belief In The True Christ Jesus,
according to the testimonies
of Christ's Apostles and disciples
that are clearly written in the Holy Bible.
"Jesus the Christ, the Son of God."
testified in their writings that, "Jesus is the Christ, the
Son of God" (Jn.20:31)
Apostle Peter said this to Jesus, "You are the Christ the
Son of the living God." (Mt.16:16)
As Jesus Himself said to the people, "I am the Son of God."
As John the Baptist have seen and testified that "this is
the Son of God." (Jn. 1:34)
As God's voice coming out of the clouds saying, "This is my
beloved Son." (Mt 17:5; Mt.17:5)
As the angel told Mary, "He will be called the "Son of God."
As Apostle Paul proclaimed, that "Jesus is the Son of God."
"Jesus Christ, the Son of God"
we do not mean that Jesus is
"God the Son"
nor "God Incarnate or God-Man" (Lesson-3B)(Lesson-3C)
The exact phrase or title "God the Son" is not used in the
Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible. The title is
associated more with the development of the doctrine of the
Trinity after the New Testament books are already completed
and all the apostles have died (Lesson-2F).
Trinitarians explain that Jesus is "God the Son" through
the doctrine of the incarnation, and "God-Man" through
Hypostatic Union "or
the "Two-Nature Doctrine". The most
widely-accepted definitions of the Incarnation and
the nature of Jesus were made by the early Catholic
Church at the First Council of Nicaea in 325, the
Council of Ephesus in 431, and the Council of
Chalcedon in 451.
But we certainly mean that
Jesus is a Man in nature and state of
Himself said that He is a man telling the truth He heard
from God . . (Jn.8:40)
A Man attested or affirmed by God by miracles, wonders and
signs . . . (Acts 2:14 &22)
The Man Christ Jesus is the only one mediator between God
and men. . . (1 Timothy 2:5)
A Man appointed by God to judge the world for Him . . .
"Jesus is a Man"
we mean that
Jesus is a
Man yesterday, today, and forever
A man as prophesied by Prophet Isaiah (Isaiah
A Child conceived in Mary who brought forth a Son and named
Jesus ((Luke 1:30-31}
As child Jesus grew increasing in wisdom and the grace of
God was upon Him (Luke 2:40)
Jesus Himself declared that "He is a Man telling the truth
He heard from God" (Jn.8:40)
Jesus died as a
Man, He breath his last (Luke 23:46), and gave up His spirit
Jesus was raised from the dead by God (Acts 4:10), still a
Man with flesh and bones (Luke 24:39)
Jesus is a Man who sits at the right hand of God in heaven
(Heb.10:12), with a glorious body (Phil.3:21)
Jesus will return on the Day of Judgment as a Man chosen by
God to do the judging for Him (Acts 17:31)
When the end comes, the Man Christ Jesus will turn over the
kingdom to God the Father, that God maybe all in all.
we also mean
Not An Ordinary Man But A Very Special Man
Jesus "committed no sin",
and no deceit was found in his mouth.
God has made Jesus who was crucified both Lord and Christ
God exalted Jesus and gave Him the name above every name, so
that at the name of Jesus everyone should worship and
confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father
God exalted Jesus as Leader and Savior that he might give
repentance and forgiveness of sins. (Acts 5:31,
The Man Christ Jesus is the only one Mediator between God
and men (1 Timothy 2:3-5)
As a Very
we mean that
Subordinate Or Not Equal To God The Father
For it is not Jesus
Himself but God who did miracles, wonders and signs through
Him ( Acts 2:22)
Jesus pleaded with God, praying with tears to the only one
who could save Him from death, (Heb.5:7)
Jesus said that "My Father is greater than I" (Jn.14:28),
because the Father is His God (Jn. 20:17)
Jesus said "a servant is not greater than his master; nor is
he who is sent greater than he who sent him" (Jn.13:16),
because Jesus is the servant of God (Acts 3:13) and He was
also sent by the God (Jn.17:3)
In the end, Jesus will deliver the kingdom to God the Father
(1Cor.15:24); then the Son Himself will also be subject to
Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all
we also mean that
distinct, a separate being, from God,
thus Jesus is not God Himself
God has no beginning but Jesus came from God (Ps.90:2,
God is immortal (not subject to death), but Jesus died on
the cross (1Tim.1:17, Jn.19:33)
God is spirit but Jesus is man having flesh and bones
(Jn.4:24, Lk. 24:39, Jn.8:40)
God neither grows tired nor weary, but Jesus wearied or
grew tired (Isaiah 40:28, Jn.4:6)
God knows no other god, but Jesus recognizes the Father as
His God (Isa. 44:8, Jn.20:17)
God is above all―subject to no one, but Jesus is subject to
God (Eph.4:6,1 Cor. 15:28)
The Simple And Pure
Belief In The True
is summarized as follows:
Whenever we say
we simply mean
Jesus the Christ, the "Son of God".
(Not "God the Son", nor "God
incarnate or God-man")
"Son of God" Jesus is a Man
in nature and state of being.
He is a Man yesterday, today and
Jesus is not an ordinary man, but a "Very Special Man",
who was made Lord, Savior and Mediator by God
and the Man chosen by God to judge the world for Him on the Day
The Man Jesus Is
Subordinate Or Not Equal To "God, the Father".
distinct, a separate being, from God, thus Jesus is not God Himself.
