Jesus(as) denied being God !
Dear brothers and sisters,
If I am standing in front of the IBM headquarters building, and a fellow employee unknowingly asked me "Is this your building , do you own this building ?" Then I replied "This Building is NOT MY OWN, but it belongs to The ONE WHO EMPLOYEES ME" This would clarify to the person asking that I AM NOT THE OWNER, I am just one of the workers. I do not own the building (Universe) the one I work for owns it.
Another Example is:
If I am at a gathering of people in a friend's house, and a fellow guest unknowingly asked me, "Is this your house ?" I would reply "This is not my house but it is the house of the ONE WHO INVITED ME" This would clarify to the fellow guest that again, I am NOT THE OWNER of the house.
Did Jesus make such statements regarding his status, the words, the will and the power he used ?
"Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine
is not Mine, but His who sent Me." [John 7:16]
"He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word
"For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak." [John 12:49]
"Jesus said to them: "My food is to do the
will of him who sent me, and to accomplish his work."(John 4:34)
"Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will,
but Yours, be done." [Luke 22:42]
"I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me." [John 5:30]
"I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger
greater than the one who sent him."[John 13:16]
"You heard me say, `I am going away and I am coming back to you.' If you loved
me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I." [John 14:28]
"Jesus said to them:"If God were your Father,
you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but he sent me."[ John 8:42]
"To sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father" [Matthew 20:23]
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." [Mr 13:32]
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only." [Mt 24:36]
"So Jesus answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me" [John 7:16]
"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." [Mt 7:21]
"And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape". [John 5:37]
"And Jesus said to him, "Wy do you call me good? No one is good but God alone." [Mr 10:18]
"And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges." [John
Some Christians, (not all) claim that Jesus implied that he was God, from the above verses, we see
that Jesus denied being God. The God of Abraham (same One God) in the Old Testament stated "I
am God" over 200 times, so we see from the many quotes above, that the House did not belong to Jesus, it belonged
to the One who Sent him.
And thats why Jesus said:
"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
It is clear that only Christians call Jesus Lord, so this passage isn't dedicated Muslims,jews,or Hindus, but Christians. And then he clearly says: "I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me". If he was "God", all mercifull full of love and forgiveness, why would he say such a thing?
He says it because he never claimed he was God and said he came "not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me." (John 6:38), which explains why he repulsed those people doing things in his name when he NEVER did things in his name but always in the FATHERS name, God Almighty, the One.
(not Physical Father should i remind, as proven in my link "Was Jesus(as) the Son, God, or a Prophet of GOD?", but as GOD, the ONE, Almighty, who doesn't need partners!
"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it"
