Jesus is Not God

Jesus is not God.  Jesus, more accurately known as Y’hoshua, is a son or child of God, one of many.  Most “Christian” religions teach that Jesus and God are one and the same.  Jesus himself said otherwise.  Where?

 “…Why call you me good? there is none good but one, that is, God…”  Matthew 19:17

God the Father

Jesus is clearly making a differentiation between himself and God.  Just prior to his death, he spoke to God and said:

“O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as You will.”  Matthew 26:39

If Jesus was God he would have been talking to himself, which makes no sense at all. He also would not have called God his Father.  Jesus was talking to his Father in heaven.

The relationship between God and Jesus is made very clear.  God is the heavenly Father and Jesus is his son.  There is only one heavenly Father and that is God.

Jesus clarified the use of the word ‘Father’ in the context of religious leaders.  In Matthew 23 Jesus lists the hypocrisies of the Pharisees which still apply today.  These hypocrisies clearly identify religious leaders that don’t understand or correctly represent God’s Word.  Jesus said:

“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”  Matthew 23:9

Jesus is not talking about your biological father, but a heavenly Father, the creator of all things.  At the time of Jesus, just like in today’s time, there were people who were called “father” as a way of elevating themselves into the position of religious authority, a speaker for God.  This was their doing and not something commisioned by God.

Jesus was not called ‘Father Jesus’.  The Apostles were not called by this title either.  John was not referred to as ‘Father John’, yet there were people then, as there are now that use this title.  Those are the people Jesus was talking about and calling out for misuse of that title.  It belongs to only one, God.

Father and Son as One

Those who perpetrate the idea that Jesus is God, site the following verses:

I and my Father are one.  John 10:30

Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: (but) he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also.  1 John 2:23

That all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.  John 5:23

When someone has the same understanding as another, they are “in lock-step” together, they think the same and could be considered of like-mind, as one.  It doesn’t mean they are the same person!  When two people get married, they are joined “as one”.  Again, they don’t merge into each other and become one entity, they are still two individuals.  Same applies.  Jesus was a son of God, not God.  A son and father are two different entities.  In order to teach God’s Word Jesus needed to understand it.  He was “as one” with God, of the same understanding.  That doesn’t make him God.

Unholy ‘fathers’

Those that elevate themselves and take on the title of “father”, on the other hand, are putting themselves in the place of God.  These ‘fathers’ are the ones Jesus was warning about, that were and still are leading people away from God, not to Him.

 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there comes a falling away first, and that man/men of sin be revealed, the sons of perdition; Who opposes and exalts himself/themselves above all that is called/spoken by God… so that he sits in the temple of God as Him, shewing/declaring himself that he is God.” 2Thessalonians 2:3-4

There is only one Heavenly Father, God, and Jesus was one of His sons.  There are other sons or children of God, but the ones taking on the title of “Holy Father” are NOT them.  Let no man deceive you!

  1. Well , good for you..truely not many organizations teach that Jesus Christ is NOT God..Most are wedged in the three in one doctrine. A doctrine that permeates the religious realms from ancient of Antiquities.
    I was taught that if you truly believe Jesus Christ is God then you cannot receive the new birth for it is idolatry before the Holy One. The Lord God. Would to God that we had time to sit down and discuss this subject matter because it is very important for the mind of our current day brethren , the Christians. Having an accurate perspective and scope of position and Authority delegated by God himself to his son and to the Church of God, his children , is what will determine our exercising the power that has been given to us to demonstrate in this world to set at Liberty them that are bruised the recovering of sight to the blind, those of us which is all of us that are taken captive by him our adversary. The renewed mind is our key to power Romans 12 :1 + 2 is this power base I speak of ,”being not conformed to this world…” but as the caterpillar is transformed into a butterfly a completely different creature. This is what our minds will become when we renew it to the greatness and the accuracy of His Word. Completely transformed into a new habit pattern of Mind thought. ” Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus”, indicating a Resurrected glorified and ascended Christ not just here on this world but seated in the heavenlies. God Bless.. Keep his return fervently hot in your minds.. sincerely Jim facciponti

    1. Glad to hear this article resonated with you. As you point out, most “Christian” religions have adopted a belief in a “trinity” which comes from the ancient Babylonian religion. As far as your reference to Romans 12:1-2, “the renewing of your mind” is absolutely something you need to do now. It is time to look at God’s Word with the blinders of false doctrine removed. Just as men can’t put new wine in old bottles, you can’t consider a new perspective on God’s Word if you are stuck in the old doctrines such as the trinity (Reference Matthew 9:17). Lastly, Jesus is not coming back. He was one of the sons of God and said he must go so that the Comforter could come (Reference John 14:16, John 14:26, John 15:26, John 16:7). It is time to drink some new wine and sing a New Song!

        1. Thank you for the question! Following is the corrected version of John 21:22. “Jesus said to him, If I desire him to stand/be present after I am gone, what is that to you? Follow Me.”

          The key differences from what you’re probably reading and the above are determined by looking up the Greek definitions for the words tarry (New Testament Strong’s #3306) and I come (New Testament Strong’s #2064). Let’s look at the later, “I come” Strong’s #2064. This is the Greek word erchomai and it means to come or to go (either literally or figuratively). So how do you know which is the correct use?! This is where context is important as well as an understanding of the big picture. Two verses later John states “This is the disciple which testifies concerning these things and will describe these things; and we know that his testimony is the Truth.” John was not talking about Jesus, but the Comforter yet to come. The same one spoken of in John 21:22, John 5:32 and John 15:26. I encourage you to look at an online Bible with Strong’s references to look at this for yourself.

  2. Jesus the Christ was the exact representation of the Father in human form. He never claimed to be the One True God. In fact, this is the lie (that Jesus was claiming to be God) that the Pharisees used to murder Jesus. True followers of the Christ are able to differentiate between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Do not be deceived. It troubles me to think that the mainstream “Christian” religions are teaching this deception. It adds to the confusion that is already present. Stay awake.

    1. Yes, there is a lot of chaos and confusion. The confusion originates with those who are the makers of idols and still extends to today. Reference Isa 45:16 Consider that the majority will be deceived and specifically the ones calling themselves “Christian” are doing the deceiving. Reference Luke 21:8
