Son of God and King of kings

All the Gospels declare early on that Jeshua or Jesus was the Son of God (Mt. 3:17; Mk. 1:1; Lk. 1:32; Jno. 1:14-18). Because he was born by the power of God, he was the Son of God, and had the strength to overcome his human nature (Ps. 80:17; Isa. 11:2-5). As God’s Son he had a desire to hear and obey his Father:

“The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back . . . For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed” (Isa. 50:5,7).

Because of his claim to Divine Sonship, the Jews tried to stone him (Jno. 10:29-39), and his confession that he was the Son of God was used as grounds for condemning him to death (Mt. 26:63-66).

It was “for the joy that was set before him” that Jesus “endured the cross, despising the shame”, and as a result “is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb. 12:2). As the Apostle Paul shows in Acts 13:33, the day of Christ’s resurrection was the day spoken of in Psalm 2:7 when God said,

“Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten thee”.

God brought Christ forth from the grave to die no more, and bestowed on him

“a name which is above every name” (Phil. 2:9),

confirming his inheritance, even the Kingdom and the saints. Glory and majesty now belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, and will be his in the Kingdom age, as is clearly seen in the Scriptures (Eph. 1:20,21; Phil. 2:10,11).

The Lord Jesus Christ has made it possible for men and women ultimately to dwell with God.

“This is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent” (Jno. 17:3).

Still today there are lots of people who call themself Christian but do not follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, nor worship the same God as Jesus worshipped. Jesus did not worship himself, but worshipped his heavenly Father, The God of Abraham, Who is a Singular eternal Spirit Being (having no birth, no death, no flesh and blood) and Whose Will Jesus did. Jesus asked his followers to believe in him and in his heavenly Father Jehovah God, Who had sent him and authorised him to act in His Name.
