Scripture shows Jesus is Jehovah God.
In order to understand who Jesus is we have to look at the Old and the New Testament and see the evidence that clearly shows and unfolds it for us. I have to thank a great study from David Curtis on which this is based.



We know God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, and forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation..."



Deuteronomy 6:4 - Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD

Matthew 28:19 - Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

2 Corinthians 13:14 - The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

Ephesians 4:4-6 -

4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

1 Peter 1:2 - Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

1 Timothy 1:17 - Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 14:7 - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.



If we study what scripture says, as it relates to Jesus, we can see that it shows how He is the Jehovah God of Abraham, of Creation and the I AM of the burning bush...



“Before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” Isaiah 43:10



If we deny the self-existent divine life of Christ, we deny that He is “the way the truth and the Life” and cast off the believers ONLY “assurance of eternal life.” Only if Christ has with in Himself eternal life can He impart this to His believers....



“8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”(Gal 1:8-9 )



“ For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”(2Cor 11:4 )



If one denies that Jesus Christ is the “self-existent One” he is in fact rejecting the “YHVH”(Jehovah) of the whole Bible. YHVH or Jehovah means literally,“the self-Existent or Eternal” Strong’s Concordance Hebrew #3068.



Let’s reiterate that ALL scripture must be interpreted by other scripture not by the mind of man. With this thought let’s begin by examining the word “only begotten.”



Q. What does the word “only begotten” literally mean in the original Greek?



A.“3439 monogenes mon-og-en-ace’



from 3441 and 1096; TDNT-4:737,606; adj



AV-only begotten 6, only 2, only child 1; 9



1) single of its kind, only

1a) used of only sons or daughters (viewed in relation to their parents)

1b) used of Christ, denotes the only begotten son of God” Strong’s Concordance.



The term “only begotten” comes from the Greek “monogenes” from which you have these two words 3441“mono” and 1096“genes.” Most are familiar with the term mono and stereo. Monotone is a single voice pitch. Genes are the structure of DNA. Hence “only begotten” or “only born” is a correct translation.



Q. Does the term “only begotten”(monogenes) refer to anyone besides Christ?



A.“17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:”(Heb 11:17-18 AV)



Note: Isaac was the second son born to Abraham. Ishmael was born 14 years earlier. Isaac was the only offspring of Abraham to whom the promised “seed, which is Christ”(Galatians 3:16) was to one day be born, 42 generations later. Matthew 1:1-17.



Q. When was Isaac “begotten” according to Scripture?



A.“ Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;”(Mt 1:2 AV)



Note: Isaac was begotten when he was conceived in Sarah’s womb and born to Abraham.



Q. When was Jesus “begotten” according to scripture (not private interpretation)?



“ And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.”(Mt 1:16 )



“ And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,”(Luke 3:23 )



“ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”(Mt 1:18 )



“ And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”(Mt 1:21 )



Note: Mary shall “bring forth a son,” who was “Emmanuel” God with us. Jesus was begotten or conceived in the womb of Mary “by the Holy Ghost.” Jesus was over the age of 30 when He spoke John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Please notice Christ was GIVEN just over 30 years before this statement was spoken when he was conceived (or begotten) in Mary’s virgin womb. I hope my Aryan thinking friends understand that last sentence. John 3:16 is speaking in the PAST TENSE of an event that happened just 30 years before. Let’s notice again the words,“Shall bring forth” as found in verse 21.

“ Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”(Mt 1:23 )



Q. Does the term “begotten” have any other meaning in connection to Christ?



A.“ I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”(Ps 2:7 )



“ For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”(Heb 1:5 )



Q. What EXACT DAY in history is this event referring to of which the Father says,“Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?(Heb 1:5 )”



A.“33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. 34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.”(Ac 13:33-34 )



The prophecy of Psalms 2:7 according to the inspired interpretation of Scripture is referring to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are only two scriptural events in which Christ was “begotten.” Once in Mary’s virgin womb just as Abraham begat Isaac and Isaac begat Jacob and so on. The second time He was “begotten” was from the tomb.



Through Mary’s sinful flesh Christ took on him the nature of Abraham and His offspring, and was thus the “son of man.” He was not the child of Joseph. He was the Son of God. The Holy Spirit immaculately conceived Christ in Mary’s virgin womb, yet He was King of all Heaven. Thus by the Holy Ghost in the virgin Mary’s womb Jesus was born (begotten) as the Son of God. Through Mary’s sinful flesh Jesus was born the son of man. Through the Holy Ghost He was the Son of God.



Q. What did this term Son of God mean in the mind of the Jews?



A.“ Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.”(Joh 5:18 )



“ Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”(Php 2:6 )



In the resurrection men that are saved are equal to angels.“ Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.”(Luke 20:36 ) Jesus was not equal to the angels He was equal to God.

“4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.”(Heb 1:4-8 ).



The above verse said,“let all the angels of God worship him.” This would be blaspheme if Christ was not YHVH (Jehovah).“ Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”(Mt 4:10 ) The Father told all the angels to worship Christ because He was equal to Himself and was,“the Lord thy God” who only was to be worshipped.



It is not permitted to worship angels “ Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,”(Col 2:18 ).



“ And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”(Rev 19:10 )



“8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.”(Rev 22:8-9 )



It is not permitted to worship the likeness of anything God has created. The second commandment forbids this. The Bible condemns in clear language those who,“ Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”(Rom 1:25 )



For any creature to claim the right to be worshipped is blaspheme. In fact the Jews falsely accused Jesus of this.“ The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”(Joh 10:33 AV) Notice these scriptures that show Jesus was worshipped.



Mt 2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.



Mt 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.



Mt 9:18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.



Mt 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.



Mt 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.



Mt 28:9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.



Mt 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.



Mr 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,



Lu 24:52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:



Joh 9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.



Re 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.



“ Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”(Mt 4:10 AV)

The first commandment says,

"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me."

Jehovah, the eternal, self-existent, uncreated One, Himself the Source and Sustainer of all, is alone entitled to supreme reverence and worship. Man is forbidden to give to any other object the first place in his affections or his service.



There are three claims of the Bible which are distinct and Satan seeks to confuse or change in mens minds:



1. The Bible claims that the Son of God has legitimate right to be worshipped.

2. The Bible claims the Son of God is our Creator.

3. The Bible claims that the Son of God possesses authority as King of the Universe to give the Law.



1. Only Almighty God should be worshipped.

2. Only Almighty God is our Creator.

3. Only Almighty God is the Lawgiver of the universe.“There is one lawgiver.” James 2:12.“ For the LORD (Jehovah) is our judge, the LORD (Jehovah) is our lawgiver, the LORD (Jehovah) is our king (Jesus is our King, Rev 19:16; John 1:49); he will save us (Jesus will save us from our sins ( Matthew 1:21).”(Isa 33:22 AV)



Satan want to and envys the Son of God for receiving the worship of angels, and script gives us that he said in his heart,“I will exalt my throne above the stars (angels; see Rev 1:20) of God” Isaiah 14:13. In this Lucifer coveted the right to be worshipped. That throne he sought to exalt was a symbol of authority. He wants to exalt his laws above God’s Law. Lucifer cannot create, he can only clone or amalgamate and mutate. Lucifer seeks to deceive men into losing sight of the Son of God’s rightful position of Authority as our Lawgiver and Creator. He hated most bitterly above all of God’s commandments the Law that says to rest the 7th day to honor the day the Son of God rested at creation and commanded at Sinai.



If you understand who Jesus the Creator is, you understand it was Christ who gave the Ten Commandments. He is the LORD mentioned in the first four of the Ten Commandments.



Exodus 20

1And God spake all these words, saying,



2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.



3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.



4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.



5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;



6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.



7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.





If Jesus is not Jehovah on what basis did He say "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me?"....The second commandment forbids to serve and worship the likeness of any thing created. Jesus Himself said to ONLY worship and serve the Lord thy God....



Now lets look at the Bible’s claim of the Son of God being our Creator. The Jehovah’s Witnesses who are also Arian in their belief of Christ and teach that Jesus was the Word who “was a god” John 1:1 (New World Translation of the bible.) The Jehovah’s Witness’s .. worship another Jesus. They accept the scriptures, which teach that Jesus was the Creator. However they interpret this as Jesus being a created angel who was with Jehovah HELPING Jehovah as Jehovah created the heavens and the earth. Arians also accept the scriptures that teach Jesus is the creator with a belief that Jesus HELPED Jehovah create the world. What does the Bible teach about this?



“ Thus saith the LORD (Jehovah), thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD (Jehovah) that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth BY MYSELF;”(Isa 44:24 AV)



No one HELPED Jehovah make the heavens and earth, JEHOVAH claims He did it ALONE, BY MYSELF!!! The New Testament is clear that Jesus created all things. Jesus is “Jehovah, the eternal, self-existent, uncreated One.”(PP 305)“He is the eternal, self-existent Son.”--Manuscript 101, 1897.



“1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”(John 1:1-3 AV)



“13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”(Col 1:13-17 AV)



“ Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD (Jehovah), the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”(Isa 40:28 AV)



“ I am the LORD (Jehovah): that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”(Isa 42:8 AV)



“4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”(John 17:4-5 AV)



Now using I AM

John 13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.



Lets look at this story of Moses and the Burning Bush.



“14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”(Ex 3:14-15 AV)



Now using THE FIRST AND THE LAST

Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.



Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:



Rev 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;



Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.



Note: Christ identifies himself in scripture even before He came and became flesh, take a look at the words.....



Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. Isaiah 41:4



Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6



Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Isaiah 48:12
