I remember when The Lord allowed this to click for me.
Have you ever thought about that before? We always think of Jesus as God's Son...but have you ever put the two together that
Jesus IS God?
This is a really helpful website to compare verses to see how Jesus is God: http://carm.org/jesus-god
This is the verse that i read today:
"Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God..." 1 John 5:1
What does the word Christ mean?
Here is Strong's definition of the word Christ:
CHRIST(Christos)=annointed; i.e. the messiah, an epithet of Jesus
(Webster's says epithet means "any word or phrase applied to a person or thing to describe an actual or attributed quality; a characterizing word or phrase firmly associated with a person or thing and often used in place of an actual name)
The word Christ comes from the word:
chrio= through the idea of contact; to smear or rub with oil; i.e. to concentrate to an office or religious service:- annoint
WOW! Did you see that?!!
Picture this with me? God, The Ultimate Supreme Diety, the Eternal the Father, Who has always been...came into contact personally with the world through Jesus!!!!! God anointed Jesus to be THE ONE to give us contact with Him! Jesus is God in flesh! Jesus is God!!!
"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." John 8:24 NASB
