    The Deity of Christ: Another Defense

    The Deity of Christ: Another Defense

    This is the show from Thursday April 7th, 2011.

    SUMMARY:

    * Message Centered on Himself: Christ spoke often of the Father. Still, He preached an egocentric message. Jesus said: follow Me · believe in Me · abide in Me · do all for My sake · confess Me · love Me · come to Me · keep My commandments · receive Me · seek Me · I bear witness of Myself · I am the truth · I am the life. Should a created being direct most attention to the Father, or focus upon himself? Bible teachers use a handful of verses to establish Christ’s identity. As is his style, Bob Enyart starts with a sweeping overview of the Bible to address the deity of Christ. This study stuns and delights, respectively, those disputing and affirming His divinity.From Bob's Writings...
    For centuries, as affirmed at the Council of Nicea, Christians have used a wonderful list of Bible verses to demonstrate from God's Word the deity of Jesus Christ. Here is another avenue, similar to the "Big Picture View" approach in The Plot: An Overview of the Bible.

    Thus Saith the Lord: If we count how many times the Old Testament prophets said, “Thus says the Lord” we find them using that phrase, in the New King James Version of the Bible, about 420 times. The New Testament on the other hand, never once records that phrase. Jesus Christ, with all the red ink devoted to recording His words, never once used that ubiquitous phrase, “Thus saith the Lord.” Rather, Jesus proclaims, “I say to you,” in the Gospels! Not a single “Thus says the Lord,” but rather, “I say to you,” 135 times. The following chart demonstrates biblically that these two phrases, Thus saith the Lord, and I say unto you, indicate the same thing, that God is speaking. For Jesus Christ made it clear that He Himself was at the heart of His teaching. Unlike the righteous priests and kings, prophets and the apostles, the Lord focused His message on Himself:


    Christ’s Self-focus



    See the rest of this at Bob's Writings or listen to Bob's Bible Study on the Gospel of John which

    Every story has a plot, and a story’s details can be confusing unless you understand its overview. The Bible tells the story of human history and the work of God for His creation, and this story has a plot as well! Grasping the big picture will help you reconcile many seemingly contradictory, and controversial Bible passages. Achieve a fuller understanding of God’s plan from Genesis to Revelation and equip yourself to share God’s Word with friends and family. Listen to The Plot series and see how the big picture can help you to understand the living God.

    Today's Resource: Have you seen the Government Department at our KGOV Store? We are featuring Bruce Shortt's vitally-important book, The Harsh Truth about Public Schools.

    Isaiah 9

    6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    Good point!

    I must disagree. The word of God is spoken by God. The praise, thus saith the Lord, is God the Father speaking through His spokesman . There is no evidence that it was anything other than that.

    Mathew, Mark, Luke and John are in truth Old Testament in that they are written while in a time reference of when the Law was in force and had not yet been fulfilled.

    Jesus is the Word made flesh. Jesus spoke with the authority of God because He is the word of God. If you will also notice that the only time the Father ever said anything was to introduce His Son. Jesus was not a preexistent anything other than the word.

    The Father said," This is my beloved son,...... Hear ye Him". Jesus had the authority to speak as the Father would speak because the Father gave Him that authority.

    His purpose was to do the will of the Father and could not, would not and did not do other than fulfill the purpose for which He was sent.
    Galatians 5:13 ¶For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

    The borrower is slave to the linder. What makes this country think it is rich and free?
