The Church View:
Jesus was a man created by God in the womb of Mary, who was a poor social outcast ,who healed the sick, did other miracles, and died for our sins.
The Bible View:
Jesus was the God of the Old Testament who took human form, was a well-known and highly respected figure in the society in which he lived, who conquered death to save the human race from certain destruction and allow all mankind to achieve eternal life.
The God that gave Moses the commandments also turned water into wine as the human, Jesus. The Bible provides ample evidence that the God of the Old Testament and the nation of Israel was born to a human mother in what appears to be a form of advanced bioengineering. The Lord of Hosts, Yhovah, the highest ranking Elohiym, became the human, Jesus, lived an exemplary life, was killed, was resurrected from the dead, and then returned to his natural form as an Elohiym. It is as Yhovah that he will return. He led Israel out of Egypt and landed at the Chebar River in front of Ezekiel. And, Jesus was beamed up after he conquered death as the Christ. The nature of Jesus as God is why he possessed the power to heal and perform any number of miracles. Jesus was resurrected from the dead because he was a spiritual being in human form. It was a beam of light from the sky that Jesus was using, which blinded Paul and it he that disclosed the Revelation to John. The dual nature of Jesus is clearly stated several times, but none more clearly than that which was stated by the apostle John:
♦ John 1:1 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. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 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. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 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.
John Further Declared His Divine Origin
♦ John 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
♦ John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
♦ John 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
♦ John 10:30 I and my Father are one. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 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. 34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
♦ John 16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
In his testimony from the Revelation, we find more from John:
♦ Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
♦ Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 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.
♦ Revelation 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
♦ Revelation 22:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last.
♦ Revelation 22:16 I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify these things to you over the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright and Morning Star.”
The Real Jesus
Jesus of Nazareth is portrayed by the modern religious community as a character far removed from the man of Bible text. His very appearance as a longhaired, bearded, light skinned, blue-eyed, emaciated figure has no basis in any known records. His social status as a poor, homeless, vagabond repairman in beggar’s attire is a contradiction of the Biblical record. Such portrayals could not be farther from the truth. The lack of emphasis on his origin as the God of the Old Testament is also more than a simple oversight. To add to this monumental omission is the failure to underscore his return to the role as the God of Israel and as self-proclaimed commander of a fleet of flying vessels. This fleet is set to invade the Earth with the expressed mission of seizing control of the entire planet including all social, governmental, military, financial, academic, and religious entities. Could it be the fact that this truth is too real? Could it be that organized religion, which by Biblical prophecy, is itself threatened and has deemed it expedient to omit certain Biblical truths?
Throughout the Old Testament the Hebrew nation is in the presence of the God, Yhovah. In the New Testament Yhovah appears in human form as the man, Jesus. For a thirty-three year period he presented himself as an Elohiym in human form and for at least three of those years he performed supernatural acts. He declared that he would return to the world at a point in the future and save the planet from destruction and the human race from annihilation. He stated very clearly that he would return with the same flying army he commanded as Yhovah as detailed in Revelation.
Jesus Was The “I AM”
♦ John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
He is referring to himself from the Old Testament speaking to Moses:
♦ Exodus 3:14 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.
Jesus Declared Himself the Son of God
♦ Matthew 26: 59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death; 60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, 61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. 62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 63 But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
♦ Mark 14: 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
♦ Luke 22: 66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, 67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go. 69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. 70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. 71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
Jesus quotes himself as God
When Jesus, the man, said this:
♦ John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
He is quoting himself as Yhovah the God from the Old Testament saying this:
♦ Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
