Black Spirituality Religion : "Jesus as the true God of the Bible"


Jul 12, 2020
To my dismay, most Christian preachers today have forgotten about Jesus as their God. All you have to do is listen to them for five minutes and you will see what I mean. And too, it seems that they have completely forgotten about the words of the Apostle Thomas as he looked on Jesus in the Upper Room and said of him, "My Lord and my God." And surely they pay no attention to the words of Jesus when he said to Thomas, "You believe because you have seen me. But blessed are they who haven't seen me and believe anyway."

In other words, we have known that Jesus is our God, the one true God, since the days of the Apostles but somehow we forgot. And too, this makes Jesus the one true God who came and died for the sins of the world. And it was Jesus himself who put the thought in our minds as he did for Thomas that night in the Upper Room. So just because our preachers today will not tell us that Jesus is the God we should pray to, does not make it not so. What I am saying is, any teachings to the contrary is a direct contradiction of what Thomas said to Jesus that fateful night. Read it for yourself! (John 21:28-29)

See, with Jesus it's just a matter of belief, a matter of us choosing or not choosing to believe. That is to say, to believe that Jesus is the God of the Bible who has come to save us from sin by dying in our place on the cross is what true faith is all about. Any other kind of faith is a false faith.

See, Jesus as YHWH God proclaims himself as the only Savior in Isaiah 45:21-23. "Consult together, argue your case," he said, "and state your case that I am not the only true God. … For there is no other God but me, a just God and your only Savior, no not one." And this was long before modern scholars messed thing up by inventing the idea that there are 2 or 3 Gods. That is to say, the idea of more than one being as God was an abomination to the prophets of old, and a horrible offense to God himself. So now we can finally understand what Jesus meant when he said in Matthew 24:15 that the time would come when we would see this Abomination that causes Desolation proclaimed openly in the Church, causing much distress and tribulation.

And to put it mildly, this Abomination of Desolation is the work of Satan, from which we are told to flee.

Jesus continues his dialogue in verse 22 by saying: "Let all the world look to me for salvation." That is to say that this is especially true for us today.

So the mistake the modern preachers make is misunderstanding the way God as Jesus speaks to us. But for us to go out of our way not to know him is another thing, something akin to what Moses went through as he came down from the mountain and saw the people worshiping the Golden Calf, and something Jesus is not pleased with. See, we must understand that, yes, God is one person. We saw this when he was born on earth, and when he hung on the cross to purge away our sins. But we must also understand that God is like an actor playing 3 parts at the same time, and each part is him. See, every time he mentions the Father or the Holy Spirit he is speaking about himself, but by his other names.

What he is doing for us is revealing his other names to us so we can know him better; but he is doing it in a parabolic way. In fact, Jesus always spoke to the people in parables. But when he was along with the disciples he would explain to them what he meant. And what he meant is what I have just explained to you above.

To wit, the Lord the prophet Isaiah knew as YHWH God in the Old Testament is the New Testament Jesus. And the very one who saved his people out of Egypt by opening the Red Sea. And the very one who will save us now if we put our trust in him. And that there is forgiveness of sins in his name.

Now there is a lot more I can say on this subject, but I don't have the time now. But I must clear up one last misunderstanding. We read in the Book of Revelation statements like this. "This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave to him," and "... the Lamb. … took the scroll from the right hand of the one sitting on the throne." And the statement that Daniel made in Daniel 7: "I saw someone like a son of man coming on he clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient one and was led into his presence," and similar other statements. These are parabolic statements saying that Jesus as God wears more than one hat and does more than one thing at the same time. And since Jesus is the Almighty God, we should not be surprised that he can do this. See, Jesus not only has multipresence, he has everywhere presence, too. So let's not try to limit Jesus by things we don't understand, or trying to contend with him from a limited point of view . Rather, lets ask Jesus to help us to understand, and he will!

And this means that the term "Son of God is parabolic, too; something to explain his stay on earth as a man. And, something we are not to try to make a literal thing, as if he were a man having a son! As Paul, speaking of him in his glorified state, said of him in Philippians 2:9-11, "Therefore Jesus as God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him a name high above all other names." This is because Jesus is the name by which God saves us. Paul continues: "... that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on the earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus is God, to the glory of God the Father." And as I said above, the Father is his other name!
