“I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.” 2 John 1:7-9 NLT
Anyone who teaches that Jesus is less than God is not teaching the truth. Jesus was, is, and always will be God!!! “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8 KJV He is Divine! Jesus was no mere man or religious teacher. He existed before the world began and is the creator of the world and all that is. “In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him." John 1:1-3 NLT "He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him.” John 1:10 NLT “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.” Colossians 1:15-17 NLT This is crystal clear! “For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.” Colossians 2:9 NLT If you have a red letter edition of the Bible you will see Revelation 1:8 in red. It reads: ““I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”” Revelation 1:8 NLT The red indicates words of Jesus. Another red letter passage is "Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.” John 14:9-11 NLT The true gospel is simply this: The unseen Spirit God became a physical man in the person of Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He died on the cross as the atonement for man's sin. He was buried and three days later He triumphantly rose from the grave. He is forever alive and will one day return for His church. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Any teaching that is less than this is a false gospel. Jesus is the only true Lord and Savior!!!
