Jesus Is God -Pastor Berlisa Knowles-Smith

Colossians 1:15-20 (AMP)

"He is the exact living image [the essential manifestation] of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible], the firstborn [the preeminent one, the sovereign, and the originator] of all creation. For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him. And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.] He is also the head [the life-source and leader] of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will occupy the first place [He will stand supreme and be preeminent] in everything. For it pleased the Father for all the fullness [of deity—the sum total of His essence, all His perfection, powers, and attributes] to dwell [permanently] in Him and through [the intervention of] the Son to reconcile all things to Himself, making peace [with believers] through the blood of His cross; through Him, [I say,] whether things on earth or things in heaven."

Jesus is God. He became a human being, died by crucifixion, and was buried. He rose again from the dead.

We know Jesus as Man, but do we know Him as God?

Christ Jesus, the Son of God, is God and Man:

We connect to Son Jesus more, Jesus in the flesh because we are flesh, but we need to know Him as God.

He is the only, all-sufficient Savior of the world. He will come again to this earth.

Jesus Christ is God:
