LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Therefore the Lord will take no pleasure in the young men, nor will he pity the fatherless and widows, for everyone is ungodly and wicked, every mouth speaks folly…” (Isaiah9:17, the Holy Bible).

BIBLICAL PROOFS THAT JESUS IS GOD THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT: Easter Post Script II: To those who have been inquiring if there is proof that Jesus is God and Savior and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who came down to earth from heaven, in the form of man with flesh and blood, and accepted the penalty for man’s sins, the answer of the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church (or AND KNK, Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo) is, yes, there are proofs of this from the Bible.

The AND KNK calls these proofs as “accurate pieces of evidence that Jesus is God and Savior, and that He is God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. What are these “accurate proofs?” These are the proofs from the Father, from the Son, from the Holy Spirit, from the disciples of Jesus, and from those who did not accept and have faith in Him.

In understanding these proofs, we should start by studying seven verses from the Bible which are the chief foundation of all proclamations that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These are Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:18-25, uke 1:26-37, John 1:1-14, and John 20:22.

JESUS IS THE GOD WHO CAME DOWN TO EARTH FROM HEAVEN: From Genesis 3:15, we learn of the curse that God gave to the serpent after it successfully enticed Eve and Adam to sin by egregiously disobeying the command of God against eating the fruit of the tree from the center of the garden. With this curse, God the Father declared that He will cause enmity between the offspring of the serpent and the offspring of the woman.

It is clear from this declaration of the Father that there would be a fight between the offspring of the serpent and of the offspring of the woman. Who is the offspring of the serpent? It is the evil one, no less, and his legion of evil spirits and sinfulness that will control (and are in fact controlling, even now) the minds of many people. The offspring of the woman refers, on the other hand, to Jesus.

Now, who is Jesus? He was the son who would be conceived of by the woman and would be given birth to by her, according to Isaiah 7:14. According to Isaiah: “God Himself will give you a sign: the virgin will conceive and give birth to a baby boy, who will be called Emmanuel…”

JESUS: “MAKAPANGYARIHANG DIYOS, WALANG HANGGANG AMA”: If we study well enough what Isaiah 7:14 said, we ill inevitably come to the conclusion that the baby boy that the virgin will conceive of and give birth to, would most certainly be human. If the woman who will conceive of and give birth to him was human, the baby boy would be a human being too. But, Isaiah’s prophecy does not end there, because in Isaiah 9:6, he identified quite firmly who or what baby boy really would be.

Here was what Isaiah said (in Isaiah 9:6 of the Bible): “Because to us a child is born, a son is given… and he would be called… “Mighty God, Everlasting Father…” Anyone who reads this part of Isaiah 9:6 would not be able to deny that the baby boy referred to therein is not human, but is in fact the “Mighty God, Everlasting Father.”

It would be very clear, therefore, from these verses, that God the Father Himself was the One referred to in Genesis 3:15 and Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6 who would come down to earth from heaven, in the form of man with flesh and blood. The only question from these verses would be: was this prophecy about God Himself coming to earth in the form of man with flesh and blood fulfilled? I implore you to read the answer in our next column on this subject. Thank God in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
