Jesus is God.

If someone claims to be saved (born again) and bound for heaven they have to believe Jesus is God, if not they are not saved. The Bible clearly states Jesus is God without a doubt. So when witnessing to people who are involved in a cult or false religion and they claim Jesus is not God they are not saved. This is definitely a salvation issue.

Jesus claimed to be God according to the New Testament. While the precise words “I am God” are not recorded, Jesus made statements that implied His divinity. For example, in the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am” and “I and the Father are one” 1. These statements indicate His divine nature and equality with God.

Furthermore, Jesus’ followers believed Him to be God. The provision of salvation through Jesus only works if He is God 1. The New Testament also refers to Jesus as the eternal Alpha and Omega, God our Savior, and the Word who became flesh

John begins his Gospel by stating, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). This verse establishes several important facts. It affirms that the Word, Jesus, existed from the very beginning and was with God. It also declares that the Word is God Himself.

By referring to Jesus as “The Word,” John emphasizes His divine nature and His role in creation. The Word is the one through whom all things were made (John 1:3). This concept aligns with the opening verse of Genesis, which states, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). John’s use of the term “The Word” highlights Jesus’ eternal existence and His active involvement in the creation of the universe.
Later in the same chapter, John further clarifies that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14). This refers to the incarnation of Jesus, where He took on human form and lived among humanity. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus revealed God’s glory and fulfilled God’s plan of redemption.

In summary, “The Word” in John 1:1 refers to Jesus, emphasizing His divine nature, His role in creation, and His incarnation as the fulfillment of God’s plan of salvation

No writer ever made more of an issue of this than John.  John tells us that Jesus repeatedly said that He had a right to do whatever He wanted on the Sabbath because He, like God, was Lord of the Sabbath.  He said that He and His Father were one.  He said that any man who knows Me knows My Father, and who knows the Father knows Me.  He said anyone who honors Me honors the Father, anyone who truly honors the Father honors Me.  He said if you’ve seen Me you’ve seen the Father.  He said in John chapter 8, chapter 5 both that He was equal in power, equal in authority, equal in judgment, equal in works, equal in honor with God the Father.  In every sense Jesus is God That’s why over in verse 43 of Luke 1 it is said, “And how has it happened to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?”  This isn’t the mother of just someone human. This is the mother of the Lord Himself.  Chapter 2 of Luke and verse 11, “Today in the city of David there has been for you a Savior who is Christ the Lord.” When the angel came to Joseph to announce to Joseph, the engaged-to-be husband of Mary, the angel said to Joseph, “This child will be called Immanuel,” El, those two words, E and L, is God in Hebrew, this is God with us, God with us.  ~ John MacArthur

Is Jesus God?   Listen to the below:



Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?” ~ Luke 7:49

The mercy shown by God is extraordinary, no matter how much or how little sin is involved. The guests’ question here is important. Jesus has made it clear that He did not just announce that the woman’s sins were forgiven—as any prophet of God could. He forgave her—as only God could.

And so, Jesus is showing this self-righteous Pharisee what real transformation looks like. And there is no other explanation. The people saw it, Luke 7:49, they all got it. Those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this man who even forgives sins?” I mean, they knew He could teach and preach, probably could heal and all of that, and cast out demons. He could even forgive sins. They knew He had done it. He didn’t say in verse 48, “God has forgiven your sins.” He said, “Your sins have been forgiven,” and she knew it was He who had done that. He affirms her condition of forgiveness. And the people all said, “This man forgives sins.” That’s as far as they would go. Always asking questions: “Who is this man who even forgives sins?” They should have been able to answer that, shouldn’t they? Who can forgive sins alone? God. But they never get that far. Every meal ever had with Pharisees ended up in obstinate unbelief. It all ended up the same way. Self-righteousness is such a terrible, terrible kind of blindness.  ~ John MacArthur
