The Deity of Christ: Undeniable Proofs That Jesus is God

The deity of Christ is still debated among people nowadays, even though the Bible and historical accounts prove that Jesus is God. The belief in God is a popular thought among many people. We call it Theism. The belief in God is well accepted as long as the conversation about God is generic and inclusive of the belief of others.

This mask of tolerance produces the thinking that we must accept all people’s belief in God, their lifestyle, moral preference, and ethnic background. It sounds beautiful to the natural man; however, such ideology is against the Word of God.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Acts 4:12

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 3:36

This is universal acceptance. It sounds suitable for unbelievers and those who hate God. And behind universal acceptance is the devil’s hidden agenda of confusion that blinds the unbeliever from the gospel.

Men become blinded by religion to the point that they no longer know what is truth. They get disappointed by the lies and false doctrines that come from religion. They get exposed to immorality and manipulation from religion and end up hating God.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2 Corinthians 4:4

The Deity of Christ: There is only one God.

To understand the deity of Christ, we must first establish the truth that there is only one God. Polytheism, the belief in multiple gods, was prolific among the pagans in the Old and New Testaments. Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, and Vikings believed in multiple gods and goddesses. Even now, many cultures and religions practice polytheism.

Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

Acts 17:16

22Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Acts 17:22-23

The Greek city of Athens was full of idolatry and polytheism. They even worshipped the unknown God who saved them from an epidemic. They recognized that the “unknown god” differed from those they worshiped because He was the only one who could save them.

Paul preached that this “unknown god” they ignorantly worshipped was the biblical God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Paul proceeded to preach to them that there is only one God though many rejected this belief.

Paul’s purpose was to preach the gospel, and everywhere the gospel is preached, polytheism is banished. The Bible teaches that there is only one God—the creator of Heaven and Earth, and the only source of salvation.

28Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 29Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

Romans 3:28-30

The Deity of Christ: The Lord God is three persons.

Another truth to establish in understanding the deity of Christ is the doctrine of the Trinity. The Bible teaches that there is only one God. Yet the Bible teaches that God is three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. God the Father is God, the Son (The Lord Jesus Christ) is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. However, God the Father is not Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ is not the Holy Spirit.

They are each God, but the Bible teaches there is only one God. It is a basic understanding that there are no contradictions in the Word of God. Therefore, you will conclude that there is one God in three persons.

Notice that the Trinity was always present in creation and Christ’s baptism and is at work in salvation. Proving that the Trinity exists at the same time. In this regard, we reject the belief of polytheism and oneness modalism.

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 3And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Genesis 1:1-3

When God created everything, we see the presence of God the Father, the Holy Spirit moving upon the face of the Waters. And the Word when God the Father spoke light into existence (John 1:1-3.)

The Trinity is also present all at once in the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit descended as the Lord Jesus Christ was baptized, and God the Father spake from Heaven (Luke 3:21-22.)

Also, the Trinity is involved in our salvation. God the Father revealed it when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:15.) The Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled it when He died on the cross and rose again after three days (Galatians 4:4.) The Holy Spirit reproves us of our sin (John 16:8.)

There is no question regarding the deity of God the Father. The disagreement is often between the deity Christ and the Holy Spirit. This resulted in the proliferation of different religions which deny the deity of Christ and the Holy Spirit. Both of which are heretical and were never taught by the apostles.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:1-3

This shows us that it was the Word who created everything. However, Genesis 1:1 tells us that it was God the Father. Therefore, you will conclude that the Word mentioned in John 1:1 is also God. Meaning Jesus is God.

27Then 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. 28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

John 20:27-28

When Thomas saw the resurrected Christ, he confessed what was revealed to him that the Lord Jesus is God. Christ, or the other apostles, never reproved him because he confessed the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ. This is an apostolic confession of the deity of Christ.

3But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

Acts 5:3-4

When Ananias lied to the Holy Ghost, Peter revealed that he did not lie to men but to God. The Bible reveals that the apostles taught the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, our churches must teach the same doctrine that the Apostles taught. Any central doctrine that errs from those teachings must be considered heresy and apostasy.

The Deity of Christ: Jesus Christ is almighty God.

God revealed Himself in creation. The beauty of creation, the expanse of the universe, and the myriad of wonders in the universe that science is yet to explain show that there is a creator behind this creation. Science admits that the chance for life to exist in our universe is nearly impossible.

Life did not exist based on our distance from the Sun or the presence of water. Life exists because God is the one who gave life.

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For 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:

Romans 1:19-20

14For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

Romans 2:14-15

God also revealed Himself in our conscience. God told Moses what to write on the tablets of stone given to the Hebrews. Though the law was given to the Hebrews, it doesn’t mean Gentiles are free to live outside the law because God gave us a conscience that contained it.

That’s why people know innately that stealing, lying, murder, and covetousness is wrong because God gave us a conscience. There would be no morality without God. We have morality even without knowing the law because God wrote it in our hearts.

1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Hebrews 1:1-3

God revealed himself through creation and our conscience. However, man needs to know who God is. That’s why God revealed himself through Christ.

Therefore, to be with God in Heaven, you must trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior (John 14:6.) If you want to know more about God, you must cultivate a closer relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. If you want to know the purpose of life, then you must follow the Lord Jesus Christ.

4As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 5For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

1 Corinthians 8:4-6

How do we apply these truths about the deity of Christ in our life? Be sincere in your worship of Christ. Many Christians were put to death because they refused to bow down to Cesar or the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Be sincere in your work for Christ. Paul was prepared to suffer the cost of God’s work because he knew for whom he was doing it.

Be sincere in your walk with Christ. Jesus is God. Therefore, we must walk in holiness adhering to the standard of morality that we find in the Bible.
