Who is the Lord Jesus Christ
(according to the Bible)?

     Inasmuch as in these last days, which the Holy Ghost calls "perilous times" (2 Timothy 3:1), many have taken it upon themselves to be inventors and followers of divers doctrines concerning the nature and truth of the Godhead, inventing many different gods called "Jesus", and walking by many different spirits, it is most necessary to set forth, according to the scripture (and only the scripture), the truth of the nature of the Godhead, and to know and teach the truth concerning the true identity of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is revealed to his own by his name; the knowledge thereof being indispensable and foundational for salvation, as the very first requirement of the sinner for salvation from sin, death, and hell is to, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." (Acts 16:31).

 

"And this is his commandment, that we should believe on the name of his Son, Jesus Christ..." (1 John 3:23)

(See also John 1:12, 2:23, 3:18, Matthew 12:21, etc...)

 
     It is evident from the scripture that,

 "The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel,

the Lord our God is one Lord, and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart..."

 (Mark 12:29,30, Deuteronomy 6:4).

 

     The Almighty God of Israel was, is, and forever shall be, one. There was no God formed before him, neither shall there be after him (Isaiah 44:8). He is the only saviour (Isaiah 43:11). He created heaven and earth by himself (Isaiah 44:24, Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-3, 10-14). He has sworn that every knee shall bow to him (Isaiah 45:23, Philippians 2:10), and he will not give his glory to another (Isaiah 42:8, 48:11). 
     From the very beginning, and all throughout history, the prophets, apostles, and all the people of God have known, believed, and taught that he is 
one, and to this day a proper understanding of the scriptures reveals that truth clearly to the true, born again seeker. 

What is "Born Again"?

 
     "Born again" is a term the Lord Jesus Christ uses to describe someone who has been impregnated by the living word of God, and is thereby made able to see the kingdom of God. Contrary to popular opinion, "born again" is not a state that man attains to by believing and saying a "
sinner's prayer", or "accepting Jesus Christ into his heart". The scriptures teach that "born again" is the condition of a man who has been born of God, and made able to see the kingdom of God, and subsequently enabled to obey the New Testament gospel by repentance and the birth of water and spirit (John 3:5, Acts 2:38). The scriptures plainly teach that a man is born again by the word of God (Luke 8:11, 1 Peter 1:23, James 1:18), and that this miracle is not achieved by an act of the will of man, but of God (John 1:13, Romans 9:16, John 6:44, etc...). 
 
It is only
after a man has been born again that he can:

  •  
    ---See the kingdom of God (John 3:3) 
    ---Know that Jesus is the Christ (Matthew 16:16,17, 1 John 5:1) 
    ---Believe on his name (1 John 3:23, Psalm 9:10, 91:14) 
    ---Repent (Romans 3:10-18, 2 Corinthians 7:10, 2 Timothy 2:25,   John 6:44) 
    ---And receive remission of sins (Luke 24:47, John 20:31, Acts 2:38, 10:43, 22:16, etc...)

  •      ...by the New Testament baptism of water and spirit (John 3:5, Acts 2:38, Colossians 2:11,12, Romans 6:4,5). The Bible does NOT teach that we are to be baptized into two or three persons.The Bible declares that we are "...baptized into Jesus Christ...". 
     

    Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

    (Matthew 28:19)


         In the fourth century A.D., at the councils of Nicaea, and Constantinople (325 A.D. & 381 A.D. respectively), the Roman emperor Constantine and the early "church fathers" (of the Roman Catholic church) implemented the doctrine of the "Trinity" which, diametrically opposed to scripture, teaches that "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" are three persons in the Godhead called "
    God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit", which persons are 
    false gods (except for God the Father), and are found NOWHERE in the Bible. The Roman Catholicchurch teaches furthermore that these three gods, or "persons", are co-equal, co-eternal, and co-existent, and are individual in function, but unified in purpose. Unfortunately, today more than ever, God's people are being destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6), as many multitudes are professing to be Christians, and yet kept out of the kingdom of God by this Catholic doctrine which is not written, taught, or even remotely suggested anywhere in scripture.
