All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan.

Thursday, September 1, 2011
In this "What I believe" series I am going to articulate Scripturally just what I believe and therefore what positions are taken on ChristianPatriot.com. Today, the first day of the series I am going to discuss Jesus, then after today we will to Genesis.
Scripture is very clear the Jesus is God, that there is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (Ghost). Therefore I believe that Jesus is God and that the Trinity is absolute 100% fact.
In John chapter one we read:
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is He of whom I said, 'After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for He was before me.' 31 And I knew Him not: but that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water."
32 And John bare record, saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon Him. 33 And I knew Him not: but He(God the Father and/or the Holy Ghost) that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, the same is He (the Messiah) which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God." John 1:29-34 ACP/KJV
So John the Baptist testifies here that God told him that the Holy Spirit would descend upon and remain upon the one who was the Messiah. John further testifies that The on the dove landed on was Jesus.
That is pretty convincing and while enough for me, it may not be for some who come from a cult.
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that Thou doest, except God be with him." 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?" 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3:1-6 ACP/KJV
Now in verse three Jesus has said that " Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." What Jesus is plainly saying is that you are either Born Again or you go to hell. But how you say does that prove Jesus is God and not just an arch angel?
Remember you must be Born Again to get into heaven, noone but noone gets into heaven except by being Born again.
32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with Him to be put to death. 33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him and the malefactors. One on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He be Christ, the chosen of God." 36 And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him, and offering Him vinegar, 37 and saying, "If thou be the king of the Jews, save Thyself." 38 And a superscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on Him(Jesus), saying, "If Thou be Christ, save Thyself and us." 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, "Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this Man hath done nothing amiss."
42 And he said unto Jesus, "Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom." 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise. Luke 23:32-43 ACP/KJV That man hanging to the side ofJesus had to be Born Again, because God Himself told him "Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise". But how does that prove that Jesus is God? Well, read verse 40b again. The thief on the cross said "Does not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?" That thief on the cross called Jesus God.
And that proves to me, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Jesus in fact is God, part of the Trinity. And for those that say that Jesus is a son of God, an arch angel, that falls short on two counts: first, they are saying that Jesus is a created being and second, that Lucifer, the fallen arch angel and He are brothers.
People that say foolish things like that should be required to read the Bible at least once before writing books and commentary.
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds. 3 Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as He(Jesus) 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. Hebrews 1:1-6 ACP/KJV
And that is why I say that I believe that Jesus is God the Son and that the Trinity is made up of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
