Everybody wants to call on the name of Jesus, but most, be it through ignorance or bad teachings don’t give the “Son of God” the honor and reverence he deserves. This is not a lesson to prove that Jesus is God, (but we will touch on that subject matter a little) and that he is in the true sense of the word.
This lesson is to prove that you had better give glory to the Son with the utmost respect. (John 1:18) No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (1John 4 vs.12) No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Now we just read in two places where it states that no man has seen God at any time. Now “No man” and “at any time” are absolutes. (Ex 24:9-11) (v.9) Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Na’-dab, and A-bi’-hu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: (v.10) And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. Wait a minute here, we read twice were it said no man had seen God at any time. Now here we see where not one or two men, but seventy-four men saw God. (v.11) And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink. It said it again “they saw God”.
Now do we have a contradiction here? Absolutely not, let’s go and let the Bible interpret the Bible. And when you learn how to do that, it’s a beautiful thing. (John 5:37, 39) (v.37) And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Jesus said that he has a greater witness than that of John the Baptists. He said that the Father had bear witness of him. Ye have neither heard his (the Father) voice at any time nor seen his (the Father) shape. So the question is, if nobody has never heard the voice of the Father or seen his shape, then who was who was it the seventy- four elders of Israel saw, ate and drank in front of? It was none other than the one who became known as Jesus. Jesus told you to; (v.39) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. He said search the scriptures they are they which testify of me. People, the scriptures are from Genesis to Malachi, the Old Testament. (1Cor 10:1-4) (v.1) MOREOVER, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; (v.2) And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea. So we know that we are talking about the time of the Exodus out of Egypt and the baptizing of the children of Israel as they passed through the Red Sea. (v.3) And did all eat the same spiritual meat; (v.4) and all did drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them: and that rock was Christ. So what Paul doesn’t what you to be ignorant of is the fact the one who led the children of Israel in the wilderness was Christ. Jesus has always existed, he didn’t start with the Virgin Mary, and he came through the Virgin Mary.
You see the word God is translated from the Hebrew word Elohim which is a unipural word, in this case meaning one family but more than one member of that family. There are two members in the God family; you have the one who became know as the Father and you have one that became known as the Son. In the beginning there was no Father and Son it was just God, one family two members not three. There is no such thing as the trinity, that is Satan trying to add himself to the God family (John1:1-3, 14) (v.1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It said in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Now Revelation 19:13 will tell you that one of the many names of Jesus is the Word. That’s because he is the spokesman of the Godhead family. Remember you have never heard the voice of the Father at any time. (v.2) The same was in the beginning with God. What does beginning mean? From my understanding it means the point at which something begins. In others words people, Jesus was not the first creation of the Father, he was there when it all started, you know in the beginning. (v.3) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Now how absolute is “All things”? He (Jesus) made all things so when we read in Genesis the first chapter and the very first verse where it says in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, if we have our spiritual eyes on we know right away that it is talking about the one that became know as Jesus. Because he created all things, and the heaven and earth are things. (v.14) 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. It says that the Word was made flesh. This is the same Word that was in the beginning with God. And yes, this same Word was God, and this same Word was made flesh and dwelt among men. Again sisters and brothers, Jesus did not start with the Virgin Mary. You can pick him up in Genesis when it says in the beginning.
(John 10:1, 7-9) (V.1) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. (v.7) Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you I am the door of the sheep. Jesus is telling you plain and simple here, that he is the door by which you must come through. There is no circumventing him. You can’t go around him and straight to the Father, it doesn’t work that way. Either you come by way of the door (Jesus) or you don’t get in, period. (v.8) All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. And God knows that most of them that came after him are thieves and robbers. Most of them are known today as the preachers of prosperity. (v.9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. So if you don’t go by the way of the door you shall not be saved, that is the simplicity of the word of God. (John14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. There is no way around (God) Jesus.
You have many people that call on the name of Jesus in one breath and kick against his name in the next breath. The Muslims are known for this; they try and convince you that the Koran and the bible go hand in hand. They do not go hand in hand; nothing can be further from the truth. You cannot serve two Gods. (Deut 18:20) But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. Muhammad is not a prophet of the God of the Holy Bible. Yes Allah may mean God in Arabic but the laws and commandments of the holy bible differ from those of the Koran. It is true that there is but one God, and the Holy bible teaches that.
The God of the Bible and the god of the Koran are two different gods. You cannot be a Muslim and a Christian. You cannot reverence Jesus by saying that he was only a prophet who did his job and died like the rest of the prophets. The god of the Koran is not the God of the creation; Jesus is the member of the Godhead that created everything. How come there is no mention of the prophet Muhammad in the Bible? But the Koran talks about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and many of the other great patriarchs of the Bible. How come the Bible has no commandment to keep and observe the month of Ramada or make the pilgrimage to Mecca? How come the Koran doesn’t teach you to observe the high and holy days of the Bible? How come Koran doesn’t teach the whole dietary law, and not just the part about the swine? I’ll tell you why, there are these and hundreds of other differences between the Koran and the bible, because they are two different books dealing with two different gods. They are not from the same orator. The Koran is an offshoot of the Holy Bible written by one man over a span of about 50 years, whereas many men wrote the bible over hundreds of years as they were lead by the Holy Ghost. So if you as a Muslims are being taught that Jesus was no more than a prophet and that you need not come through him to enter into the kingdom of God, then you are being greatly deceived. And you have not yet learned that in order to be saved that you must first understand that you must “KISS THE SON”!
You then have the so-called Old Testament scholars who claim the same thing as the Muslims and the Jehovah witnesses. That Jesus is the Son of God, but he is not God. He was only a prophet who came and done his job and died like the rest of the prophets. And if you believe that he died and remains dead, then you don’t believe in the resurrection and you are then still in your sins. I mean the son of a dog is a dog, correct. The son of a man is a man, correct. The Son of God is God in the true sense of the word. That’s why Jesus made this statement after his resurrection from the dead. (Matt.28:18) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Now if you believe in the bible as you say you do you explain to me, what does all power mean? You will learn to kiss the Son, be it in this life or the next. (1Tim.1:15-17) (v.15) 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. (v.16) Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. You most believe on Jesus and follow his words (which he received from the Father) to life everlasting. (v.17) Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. A-men’.
Now who are we talking about here? We are talking about Jesus. It says to the King eternal, Jesus was the King of Israel and he will retake his seat as the King of Israel at his Second Coming. Sitting upon the throne of David where he and his saints will rule the whole world from Jerusalem on this earth. It says immortal, the only wise God. People you best respect, honor, and give glory to the Son. KISS THE SON!
(John 14:23-24) (v.23) Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (v.24) He that loveth me not keep not my sayings: and the word which ye hear are not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. You see Jesus only came to do the will of the one which sent him, which is the member of the God family that became known as the Father. So when you reverence and obey Jesus then you are respecting and obeying the Father. But there is also a flip side to that coin. (Luke 10:16) He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. If you teach the true uncut word of God and people despise you, its not you that they are kicking against it is Jesus that they are kicking against. And when you kick against Jesus, you are kicking against the one who sent him, the Father. (Is 45:22-23) (v.22) Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. In other words if you expect to be saved you must turn unto God because there is no one else, and he is referring to pagan gods here when he says “no one else”. (v.23) I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. So unto God every knee is going to bow and unto God every tongue is going to swear. People think about what you just read, God is a title not a name.
Now let’s go and get a name for this particular member of the Godhead. (Phil 2:5-6,9-11) (v.5) Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (v.6) Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: Now do we understand what “being in the form of God” means? Again Jesus didn’t start with the Virgin Mary; he came through the Virgin Mary. Jesus has always existed as a spirit being that spirit being in this case was God. Now do we understand what “Equal with God” means? It means like in quality, nature, or status. Jesus was God in the beginning, he became flesh and died for the sins of man and he went back to his former glory as God. (v.9) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: This says a name, which is above every name, now correct me if I am wrong, but Jehovah is a name. Well for the Jehovah witnesses, who think they are dealing directly with the Father, the name of Jesus is even higher than that of the name Jehovah. Now did the Father give Jesus a name higher than that of his own? Absolutely not, because Jesus is the Father’s name. The Father’s name is Jesus and the one that became known as the Son name is Jehovah. Jesus told you that I come in my Father’s name. (v.10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And it says that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow. But we read in Isaiah 45 that every knee would bow unto God. That’s right people Jesus is God and you will give him the reverence and honor that he deserves, or you will pay the price, be it in this life or the next, but pay you will. (v.11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
(John 12:26) If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. You have nothing coming if you don’t serve and obey Jesus. It is Jesus that has presented the Father to you. You know nothing about the Father except what Jesus through his word has taught you. You have never heard the Father’s voice or seen him at any time. The only member of the God family that man has dealt with is the one that became known as the Son. So you had better learn how to kiss the Son! Even when dealing with the baptism, you are supposed to baptize in the name of Jesus, the same name that most people kick against, even most of the so-called Christians. (Matt 28:9) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: You see most of your teachers and preachers of prosperity especially your TV ministers will try and convince you that you need not be baptized. And this is because they cannot get to you in order to baptize you. So they say that the baptism is not necessary, because they want you to continue to send them the money. Jesus himself was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. But it says to teach and baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Sisters and brothers father is not a name it is a title, son is not a name it is a title, and the Holy Ghost which is the spirit of God, comes in many forms.
Let’s go and see what name is supposed to be used when you are baptized. (Acts 2:38) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. You are supposed to be baptized in the name of Jesus. (Acts 19:5) When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. So why does it say in one place baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. And then in other places it says baptize in the name of Jesus. Because Jesus told you; (John: 5:43) I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. So if someone came in his or her Father’s name and that someone is called by the name of Jesus. Then what must the Father’s name be? That is simple, Jesus. Now we know that the Father’s name is Jesus, and that the Son came in his name therefore being called Jesus himself. Let’s take a look at the name of this particular Holy Ghost. (John 14:26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. So what name is the Holy Ghost coming in? In the name of Jesus! So when you baptize in the name of Jesus, you have baptized in the name of the Father (Jesus), and in the name of the Son (Jesus) and in the name of the Holy Ghost (Jesus).
It would behoove you to learn about the name and power of the Son of God rather than opening your mouth in ignorance, because this name was not from among men, but this name came down from heaven. (Luke1:30-31) (v.30) And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. (v.31) And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. Thats right the Father sent his Son and gave him his own name, the mighty name of Jesus. (Is 12:2) Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JE-HO’-VAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Yes, God is your salvation and that is who you should put your trust in. But it also says here that JE-HO’-VAH he also is become my salvation. (Acts 4:10,12) (v.10) Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. (v.12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. It says that there is not salvation in any other, and that there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. And sisters and brothers this is the name of Jesus. But in Isaiah the 12th chapter we read were JE-HO’-VAH had become our salvation. And this is true, because the Son’s name is JO’HO’-VAH, but when he came and died for the sins of the people that is when he became our salvation. And when he died, he was under the name of his Father, Jesus. (1Thess 5:9) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, (Tim 2:10) Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. There is no other way people, you must go through God to get to God. Jesus is the intercessor. You must come through the Son if you expect to get to the Father.
So to all of the different religions, denominations, sects, camps or whatever you may call yourself if you don’t honor the Son you shall surly have your place in the lake of fire. John 5:21- 23) (v.21) For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. (v.22) For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son. The Son will judge you according to your works regarding the commandments. (v.23) That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Do I need to elaborate on that? If you are not honoring the Son, then you are not honoring the Father.
This lesson was especially written for the JE-HO’-VAH witnesses, the Muslims, the Old Testament scholars and anybody else who doesn’t give Jesus the Son of God his due respect.
King James Version (KJV)
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Always remember that there is peace in Jesus. May the Lord God give skill and understanding to all who are truly seeking the truth.
In Jesus name, A-MEN.
