But regarding the Son He says,
“Your throne, God, is forever and ever,-Hebrews 1:8, NASB 2020
And the scepter of righteousness is the scepter of His kingdom.
The Son [Jesus Christ] is called God, whose throne will never end. This verse makes Jesus eternal, not having a beginning.
Why is it necessary to believe that Jesus is God? Let’s take a look at what Jesus said about Himself and what the Apostle Peter said about Jesus.
In John 8:24, Jesus said, “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” NASB 2020
Jesus said that if you do not believe that He is God, He will not forgive you of all your sins. Why? Well, if a friend gave you his new email address, but one of the letters you wrote down was wrong, not knowing how else to reach him. Having the correct email address makes all the difference. When you decide to email your friend, you will never get a respond back.
It is the same way with Jesus. If you believe in the wrong Jesus and pray to the wrong Jesus, your prayers will never reach Him.
The devil will try to trick you by putting on a mask of Jesus to lead you astray.
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his trickery, your minds will be led astray from sincere and pure devotion to Christ.-2 Corinthians 11:3, NASB 2020
Satan will come to you with a different Jesus. And as 2 Corinthians 11:3-5 warns, he (Satan) will try to take away your sincere worship for the Lord because He doesn’t want you to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. You see, Satan has his own [false] gospel. To name a few; Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Islam, Christadelphians, and other religious organization that falls in the same theology of Jesus not being God.
There Is Only One Savior
In Acts 4:10, 12, Peter declared, “10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health…12 “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among mankind by which we must be saved.”
Peter said here that without believing in Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross, you won’t be able to get saved. What does this have to do with Jesus being God? I’m glad you asked. For the answer, we will need to travel back in time to the Old Testament.
In Isaiah 43:11, the LORD says this about Himself, “I, only I, am the LORD,
And there is no savior besides Me.”
In Isaiah 43:11, it says that the LORD is the only savior, and in Acts 4:10, 12, it says that Jesus is the only savior. There cannot be, as the LORD in Isaiah very clearly said, another savior besides Him. For Jesus to save you from your sins, He has to be God. In the whole Bible, there has always been one savior, and that will never change. For God to save humanity from their sins, He took flesh and put it on as a garment. He did this so that He would be able to die on the cross.
This post is for the one who does not believe that Jesus is God. Friend, I ask you to look at the verses I have presented here and others, such as these: John 1:1-2, John 5: 17-18, Colossians 1:16, and Revelation 1:8-18.
If you believe in the wrong Jesus, you won’t be able to go to heaven. I want you to be there with me. Put away your other extra-biblical sources and just read the Bible. God bless.
