The Indisputable Deity of Christ

By

Rev. Louis Showers, Sr.
Goshen, Indiana

The Bible, in speaking of the Lord Jesus Christ declares, "For in Him dwells all of the fullness of the Godhead bodily" (Colossians 2:9).    How sad it is that most of the people of our world go through their whole life time without ever discovering and knowing who Jesus Christ really is.  They hear His name with some regularity as it is used in vain.  They also hear of Christ Jesus through the speaking of some preachers and missionaries they consider as fanatical believers.  They know that the Bible is readily available through which they can discover and evaluate in their minds and heart who Jesus said He is.        

With all of the witnesses there are in our world, they still shrug off what they hear and proceed to make their own philosophies about Jesus in which they find a false sense of peace about their eternal future. Many of those unbelievers even attend church and sometimes are faithful in their attendance though sadly they say will tell you they have never been clearly told the truth of the Biblical pronouncement as to who the Lord Jesus really is. 

A Cult member once challenged a preacher’s views about the deity of Jesus.  He said to the preacher, "You say that Jesus Christ is coequal with the Eternal Father, but he cannot be, for no son is ever as old as the one who has begotten him."            The minister thought for a moment then replied.  "You yourself just called God the Eternal Father.  Have you ever thought that statement through?  Don't you realize that God can only be the eternal Father if he has an eternal Son?  Dear sir, if you would search the Scriptures you would see that Eternal Fatherhood demands Eternal Son-ship."  Dear Friend we cannot look into both the Old Testament and the New Testament without seeing the deity of Jesus Christ clearly and dogmatically taught.  In fact even the demons testified to his deity in the Scriptures.  The angel Gabriel, sent to Mary and Joseph from God, declared that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  John the Baptist, the last and greatest of the Old Testament prophets (Matt. 11:11), declared that Jesus is God of very God.         Jesus said of himself "He that hath seen me, has seen the Father, for I have come to show him to you."           Hebrews 1:8 "But unto the Son he says, Thy throne oh GOD, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom" God the Father calls Jesus God of very God.

Since the Scriptures are so very clear about the deity of Christ, then we must also accept the truth about why God became a man.  He did so because He loved fallen man so much, that He became a man that He might die in man’s place to make a way of salvation from the curse of sin.  Is Jesus Christ your Savior?  If not, why not ask Him to be today!
