See our playlist "Dealing with Jehovah's Witnesses, Watchtower Society" with 19 videos at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=.... The endless dispute over who Jesus is goes on. The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is God in the flesh (John 1:1-14) but most reject what the Bible says. False prophets & cultists fall into the trap described by saint Peter in 2 Peter 3:15-16, "... even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." The ungodly refuse to accept what the scriptures teach but rather try to twist the scriptures to say what they want to believe instead (this is how the Mormons can believe that Jesus is the brother of the devil, the Jehovah's Witnesses can believe that Jesus is the Archangel Michael, the Moonies can believe Jesus is a failure & has been replaced by Rev Moon, the Muslims can believe Jesus is not the "Son of God" but just a human man who preceded the final prophet Muhammad & on it goes). The truth, however, can only be found by going by what the scriptures actually teach (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

Yes, Jesus is God, but the answer needs to be expounded upon. When we say that Jesus is God we're using the term "God" in reference to the divine nature. But we have to be careful because we don't want to say Jesus is God and fail to understand that God is a Trinity. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity is that God exists as three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

Jesus is both divine and human. In other words, he is both God and man. God has a divine nature, and Jesus possesses the divine nature as well as the human nature. This dual nature characteristic is called the hypostatic union.

We know that Jesus is God in flesh because the Bible says many things declaring this. For example,
1.John 1:1, "in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.
2.John 1:14, "and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us..."
3.John 8:24, "unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins."
4.John 8:58, "before Abraham was, I am."A.Exodus 3:14, "God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

5.Col. 2:9, "for in him dwells all the fullness of deity in bodily form."
6.Heb. 1:8, "But of the Son he [The Father] says, 'You're throne, O God, is forever and ever.'"

After Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, Thomas, one of the disciples, doubted that he had risen. Jesus appears to him and Thomas responds by saying to Jesus "my Lord and my God," (John 20:28). Jesus makes no correction to Thomas about this. Titus 2:13 tells us to wait for the coming of "our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus." In John 5:18 it says that Jesus "was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God."

It is clear from the Scriptures that Jesus is considered to be God in flesh; that is, he is considered to be divine. The reason is because without Jesus being both God and man, he could not make a sacrifice of sufficient value to please God the Father. If he were not a man, he would not be able to die for the sins of mankind.

Jesus created Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, in his image. He is the Creator of the universe. The Bible says, "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:3). This includes all the stars, all the original animals and plants, and even the angels (Colossians 1:15-17).

Jesus is God, and he has always existed. Jude 5 (ESV) says, "Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe."

Jesus accepted worship & God Himself told all the angels to worship Jesus & even called Jesus God (Hebrews 1:6-8, "And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever ..."
