*Son of God, not God the Father... Colosians 1, First born of all creation. You can find Jesus mentioned as "Wisdom" in Proverbs 8, you can find Him as one of the "3 men" who comes to Abraham before the destrution of Sodom. You can read where it says "My Lord rained down fire and brimstone, from the Lord out of heaven." Jesus was also wrestling with Jacob. Jesus changed Oshea's name to Joshua before entering the promised land. And many other times Jesus, as the TRUE son of God, was on the Earth carrying out God the Father's will all through out the old testament. And of course, in Genesis One, "Let US make man in OUR image..." etc...

John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 - As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 - And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 - I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 - And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 - I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 - Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

Read all the chapter verse 8-26

"For God sent no his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world THROUGH HIM might be SAVED.

Faith Trust Life

All are forgiven


Rob's comment on 2020-12-20 05:08:18:

"All God and all man " one of the most strangest explanations of Who the Lord Jesus Christ is , I have ever heard .

I have a glass that is all full of water , get the point ?

If Jesus was All God then God left the throne and walked among us ?

Jesus is Gods son born of God and Mary , the correct explanation of who Jesus is .


Names of Jesus's comment on 2020-12-19 21:59:43:

This is the skinny on that question. Mankind was perfect until Adam and Eve sinned. All people's born after them were born into original sin. They still were not perfect after the flood.

Jesus was born the sinless Lamb of God. All God, and all man; yet without sin. Not once did He sin, on his way to the Cross. That's why the shedding of his sinless blood was an acceptable Atonement for sinful mankind. God is a consuming fire and He cannot even look upon sin. He poured out His wrath on Jesus, on the Cross. Jesus took that for every person.

God gave his Son, because He longed to show his love to all the world. What Jesus did, gave us all the ability to receive the Free Gift of salvation from our sins.

The Holy Spirit tells us everything we need to know about being saved. He teaches and reveals Jesus to us.

Jesus existed before Genesis, and all time since then: His Name was The Word of God, and still is one of His many names. When He was born in Bethlehem, his name was Immanuel: " God With Us."

Blessed Christmas, Mishael

Is it possible for a Christian live a perfect life of no sin


malcolm green's comment on 2020-11-22 11:13:59:

Amen. Now lets go deeper. The Holy Ghost the spirit of truth the teacher of all things Christ in you 3 in one the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit amen. We have the Father because he is the Creator. His Son 1st born king of kings lord of Lords Jesus Christ who came from the Father came so we may live and inhairait eternal life the promise God gave Abraham Jesus is our savor our protector our redeemer healer defence the 1st the last begining our everthing he paid the price for us Jesus said that it was important that he go to the father and when he goes he will send the Holy Spirit... So that spirit the Holy Spirit comes in and dwell in you Christ in you (the marriage). We have to put on the mind of Christ (by renewing of the mind) to be Christ like joint heirs with Christ Jesus.( he thought it was not robberie to be equal with God) . So he put on that mind set the rebirth of his mind. He looked in him (which is to be aware) and the spirit of the Lord lead and moved him letting purpose set in.amen

Comments by Alex on John 3 : 14 on Jesus telling them about HIM SELF being like the bronze serpent that had to be lifted up that our sins might be forgiven that our sins ( OUR SNAKE BITE ) might not be FATAL . We are still in the wilderness and sometimes we get bit ( sin ) But if we behold the lamb of God our snake bite is not fatal. Simply b/c the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of snake bite and death ( sin and death ) We still get bit some times but our sin is not fatal. Now we behold the lamb of OF GOD THAT TAKETH AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD. Thats y he left us some GRACE he knew wd need it ,as we are not perfect just yet, We have not got to the land of PROMISE just yet . None of them wanted to get bit but its happens but they wd behold the bronze serpent and they wd live. We are involved in a warfare and sometimes we get bit by satan but if we behold the lamb of God our snake bite is not fatal. Thats y Paul is saying there is no condemnation to them in Christ Jesus .Paul says if we do something we do not consent unto its not us that does it but sin that dwells in our members, with my mind i serve the law of God but with my FLESH the law of sin thus our warfare is in our minds remember Golgatha was in the place of a skull meaning in the minds of mankind thus by his blood we will win the war on sin, Behold the lamb of God that taketh away the Sins of the world, Remember we are gonna have the mind of Christ. When that which is perfect is come that which is done in parts will be done away with. gbu


Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka's comment on 2020-09-16 02:16:52:

While it's not necessary to have perfect knowledge in order to be saved-justified before God-a core aspect of the gospel is a recognition of our sin. Therefore, anyone who claims to have never sinned is denying the gospel. By definition, such a person is an unbeliever. And, any believer who concludes that they no longer sin needs to be corrected.


Roland Nahereza's comment on 2015-05-29 00:20:26:

TRUE!! If we ever say we have no sin,then we should ask ourselves why our LORD Jesus taught His disciples in Mathew 6:12 to always ask for forgiveness in The Lord 's prayer..

tony burnley's comment on 2013-04-10 15:19:02:

i believe the word of the LORD, his word is truth and trustworthy, therefore we all have sinned, and sin is yet in our reach, i also believe that we yet sin, but not willingly so to speak, we as believers hate sin, and in our soul exixtence we are cleansed in and from the bllod of JESUS.


Tapiwa Mkorongo's comment on 2012-11-13 05:25:50:

If we say we have no sin, we deceive our self and the truth is not in us. This is very true.


Forbes's comment on 2011-10-09 01:54:55:

Who can claim to be a sinless person while still living in this sinful world? God's eternal word declares that we have all (including Pastor, Bishop, Clerg, Papa,Elder, Reverand & church member) have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.Romans 3:23
