"I Believe That Jesus Christ Is The Son of God"

Text: 1st John 4:14-15

"And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent

the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of

God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God."

Introduction-

Doctrine, to me, has never been boring, or un-

interesting. We live what we believe, and what

we believe determines who we are, and where we

are going. One of the most crucial doctrines of

the Christian faith is the doctrine of the diety

of Jesus Christ. It is here that many cults leave

the faith, and many false ideas are promoted. If

Jesus Christ is not who He claimed to be, then we

are hopelessly lost and condemned. In this messa-

ge, I want to examine some of the main proclaimat-

ons of the Word of God concerning the person of

Christ.

I. First of all, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST ETER-

NALLY CO-EXISTED WITH GOD THE FATHER IN THE FURTHER-

IST REACHES OF ETERNITY.

John 1:1 declares-"In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Isaiah 9:6-"For unto us a child is born, unto us a

son is given; and the government shall be upon his

shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,

Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father,

the Prince of Peace."

John 17:5-"And now, O Father, glorify thou me with

thine own self with the glory which I had with thee

before the world was."

John 8:58-"Jesus said unto them, Verily , verily,

I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am."

Colossians 1:16-"For by him were all things created

that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible

and invisible, whether they be thrones, or domin-

ions, or principalities, or powers: all things

were created by him, and for him."

Our Lord Jesus Christ has always existed with God

the Father. He was not a created being, but Co-

existent, and Co-Eternal with God the Father.

II.Secondly, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN OF

A VIRGIN.

There have been other miraculous births in the

Scriptures, such as John the Baptist, and Isaac in

the Old Testament, but never has there ever been,

nor will there ever be, a birth quite as unique and

special as the virgin birth of the Son of God.

Matthew 1:21-23

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt

call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people

from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled

which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet say-

ing,

"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall

bring forth a son, and they shall call his name

Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us."

If the virgin birth be proven false, then all else

we have heard about Jesus is suspect; but, thank

God, He is who he is, the only-begotten Son of

God."

III.Thirdly, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST LIVED A SIN-

LESS LIFE.

1st John 3:5-"And ye know that he was manifested

to take away our sins; and in him is no sin."

1st Peter 1:19-"...But with the precious blood

of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and with-

out spot."

Hebrews 7:26-"For such a high priest became us,

who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from
