Can I really provide proof for you that Jesus is God? I can direct you to a very bright light with the Bible and with dialog that we hear so often and possibly even partake in ourselves. But as with man and God, we ignore the truth and do not understand the circumstances. Sadly, we forget God altogether.
It is first important to say, the Holy Scriptures, in our bibles state, that between it's covers, "every word is breathed out by God". Jesus is called, "The Word" and all of God's Word, in some way, relates to Jesus Christ. By His Father's will and plan; Gods Gospel is the promise from the beginning that He would send a Savior to take away our sins. Scripture teaches us far more than this, as stated in this website: Jesus is God! Christians believe in one God. Though Jesus is refereed to as, The Son of God; in His words, Jesus is One with God the Father. This is very important to consider as I present my evidence. Man's words and possibly your own words will be evidence; but bible truths become their own evidence.
The bible tells of Moses coming down from Mount Sinai with two stone tablets, containing the 10 Commandments from God. This is around 3,600 years ago. The first commandment given by God is: "Thou shall have no other gods before me." 2nd: "Thou shall not make graven images of me." 3rd: "Thou shall not take The Lord's name in vain." Let's stop right there. What does it mean to take the Lord's name in vain? This is a very unique commandment God asks us not to do. To do something in our vanity, we desire to elevate self; to bring attention to our self; for our pride and power. God is saying, there is power in His name and you're not to use His name and that power to elevate or bring attention to yourself. Well, who does that? People everyday, all over the world, take the name of Jesus Christ to bring attention to themselves and their statements!
God gave Moses the 10 commandments; 1,600 years before the birth of Jesus. But now, 2,000 years after Jesus has risen from the dead; 3,600 years later; people use the name of Jesus for their power, everyday! It is the ONLY NAME that can be used in vain, giving emphasis and bringing attention to your words. You can't say, "Buddha, the car won't start!" it just sounds dumb. The same goes for ANY OTHER NAME! But, if in your frustration or your astonishment you say statements as: "Jesus" or "Jesus Christ, the car won't start!" or "Jesus, look at the size of that!" or "For Christ's sake are you kidding me?"; you have taken the power in the name of God and used that power to bring attention to your statement; you receive the attention you desired; or everyone knows you are upset; and you have sinned against God; breaking God's 3rd commandment, where God commands us not to do this very thing!
Notice in the examples, it is the name of Jesus that brings the attention to the subject of which the sentence speaks. Often, the subject is unspoken and just the name of Jesus brings attention to the subject at hand. Their displeasure and frustrations are enhanced by the name of Our Lord Jesus. Though Christian's can have moments of weakness; I find Christian's do not take the name of Our Lord Jesus in vain; if they do, it would be a Christian, young in God's Faith, who had a habit of using Jesus's name in vain and has had that regretful moment. Mostly, people who take God's name in vain have no personal relationship with God; they take God's precious and powerful name, to be used in adoration and utilize it for personal attention; for their vanity. It is telling, at life's most frustrating moments for unbelievers; what may come fourth from the depths of their soul is the name of Jesus.
As importantly, why is this possible? Why by saying, "Jesus", are your words given power and attention? Because Jesus is God! Look at these verses from Philippians chapter 2: - 6 "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." - God's Holy Word says, Jesus is God and His name is above every name! The ability to take the name of Jesus in vain, verifies the Old & New Testament teaching proving Jesus is God!
Scripture testifies again and again that Jesus is God; people all over the world prove it everyday by breaking the 3rd commandment from God; taking God's name in vain for their vanity and using the name of Jesus for the purpose of expressive attention. I want to finish with this verse. ---- Acts 4:12 ---- "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other NAME under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” 1. Command from God not to use His name in vain; 2. Bible says, Jesus is God become man and God has made His NAME the highest name; 3. NO OTHER NAME CAN BE TAKEN IN VAIN or can be used to bring attention; 4. There is no other NAME by which we must be saved.---- I rest my case; JESUS IS GOD!
