    Should We Worship Jesus Christ As God And Deity – Spiritual Reading

    Should We Worship Jesus Christ As God And Deity – Spiritual Reading. We are taught in so many words that Jesus Christ should be worshipped as God, both by angels and men. In numerous places in the gospels we see Jesus Christ accepting without hesitation a worship which good men and angels declined with fear, and which He Himself taught should be rendered only to God (Matt. 28:9; Luke 24:52; Mark 14:33; cf. Acts 10:25, 26; Rev. 22:8, 9, R. V.; Matt. 4:9, 10). A curious and very misleading comment is made in the margin of the American Standard Revision upon the meaning of the word translated “worship” in these passages, and that is that…

    Power Over Elements And Nature – Miracles, Signs And Wonders Done By Jesus

    Power Over Elements And Nature – Miracles, Signs And Wonders Done By Jesus. Jesus helps to calm the windstorm and tempest while in the boat with his disciples. On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said…

    What Is The Relationship Between God And The World And The Men He Created – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Relationship Between God And The World And The Men He Created – Spiritual Reading. We turn now to a consideration of the present relation of this Personal God presented to us in the Bible, to the world He has created and to the men whom He has created. 1. In the first place we find that God sustains, governs and cares for the world He has created. He shapes the whole present history of the world. This comes out again and again. A few illustrations must suffice. We read in Ps. 104:27-30: “These wait all for thee, that thou mayest give them their food in due season. (28) Thou givest unto them,…

    What Do You Think Of The Christ | The Deity Of Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading

    What Do You Think Of The Christ | The Deity Of Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading. “Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying, What think ye of the Christ? Whose son is He?”—Matt. 22:41, 42. The question that our Lord Jesus here puts to the Pharisees is the most fundamental question concerning Christian thought and faith that can be put to anybody in any age. Jesus Christ Himself is the centre of Christianity, so the most fundamental questions of faith are those that concern the person of Christ. If a man really holds right views concerning the person of Jesus Christ he will sooner or…

There is no more important question that you could possibly face. Face it in these pages and don’t dodge it.

    What Is The Proof For The Personality Of The Holy Spirit – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Proof For The Personality Of The Holy Spirit – Spiritual Reading. There are four separate and distinct lines of proof of the Personality of the Holy Spirit. 1. The first line of proof of the Personality of the Holy Spirit is that all the distinctive marks or characteristics of personality are ascribed to the Holy Spirit in the Bible. What are the distinctive characteristics of personality? Knowledge, feeling and will. Any being who knows and feels and wills is a person. Oftentimes when you say that the Holy Spirit is a person, people understand you to mean that the Holy Spirit has hands and feet and fingers and…

    What Is The Importance Of The Doctrine Of The Personality Of The Holy Spirit – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Importance Of The Doctrine Of The Personality Of The Holy Spirit – Spiritual Reading. 1. The Doctrine of the Personality of the Holy Spirit is of the highest importance from the standpoint of worship.  If the Holy Spirit is a person and a Divine Person, and He is, and if we do not know Him as such, if we think of the Holy Spirit only as an impersonal influence or power, then we are robbing a Divine Person of the worship which is His due, and the love which is His due, and the confidence and surrender and obedience which are His due. And may I stop at…

    Was Jesus Christ Subject To Human Limitations – Spiritual Reading

    Was Jesus Christ Subject To Human Limitations – Spiritual Reading. But the reality and completeness of our Lord’s human nature comes out not only in the fact that He had a human parentage and a human body: we are also clearly taught that, while as God he possessed all the attributes and exercised all the offices of Deity, as a man He was subject to human limitations. 1. He was subject to the physical limitations which are essential to humanity:  In John 4:6 we read that Jesus Christ was weary. The words are “Jesus, therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.” But God…

    What Was The Human Relationship Of Jesus Christ To God – Spiritual Reading

    What Was The Human Relationship Of Jesus Christ To God – Spiritual Reading. The completeness of the humanity of Jesus Christ comes out in still another matter, and that is, the relation that He bore to God as a man was the relation of a man, so that God was His God. He himself says to Mary in John 20:17, “Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended unto the father: but go unto my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.”  The evident meaning of this is that Jesus Christ’s relation to God, the Father, was the relation…

    What Divine Offices Predict The Divinity And Deity Of Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading. There are seven distinctively divine offices.

The seven distinctively Divine offices are: Creation, Preservation, Forgiveness of Sin, the Raising of the Dead, the Transformation of Bodies, Judgment, and the Bestowal of Eternal Life, and each of these is ascribed to Jesus Christ.

    What Names And Titles Prove That Jesus Christ Is God And Divine – Spiritual Reading

    What Names And Titles Prove That Jesus Christ Is God And Divine – Spiritual Reading. There are many names and titles clearly implying deity are used of Jesus Christ in the Bible, some of them over and over again, the total number of passages reaching far into the hundreds. Of course, I can give you only a few illustrations. Turn with me first of all to Rev. 1:17, “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his right hand upon me saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last.”  The context shows clearly that our Lord Jesus was the speaker, and here our Lord…
