How The Holy Spirit Helps Us

Posted in Biblical Studies, Biblical Topics, Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 9, 2016 by telltheworldtheword

The Spirit Of God

“The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding.”

Isaiah 11:2

All throughout the bible we  read a lot about the “Holy Spirit,” the “works of the spirit,” and the Holy Ghost; but who is he, and what does he do in our daily life? The Holy Spirit is the spirit of the living God, and when invited he will come and dwell inside of us (1Corinthians 3:16) helping to lead us into “all truth”(John 16:13). For some Christian denominations and especially new believers the idea of the “Holy Spirit” can seem a bit strange so what exactly is his role in our lives?

1.The Holy Spirit Helps Us 

One of the numerous titles for the Holy Spirit is “The Helper.”(John 14:26) Much like the name suggests, he helps us along on our path and leads us into Gods purpose for our lives. The Holy Spirit helps us to walk in the ways of God (Psalms 128:1) and assists us in our decisions through gentle promptings, urgings, and nudges within our spirit.

2.The Holy Spirit Teaches Us

When Jesus was explaining the role of the Holy Spirit to his disciples he called him the “Spirit of Truth” (John 16:13). In this sense, the Holy Spirit is a teacher that among many other things teaches us how to discern the truth from fallacy (Especially when it relates to God and His Word). “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth…”

 

3.The Holy Spirit Gives Us Spiritual Gifts

1 Corinthians 12:4 tells us that the Holy Spirit is the one that distributes and endows us with the “Gifts of the Spirit.” These are the special spiritual gifts that are given and distributed among the body. The 9 gifts of the Spirit that are given as he wills, are:

  1. The Gift of Wisdom
  2. The Gift of Knowledge
  3. The Gift of Great Faith
  4. The Gift of Healing
  5. The Gift of Miracles
  6. The Gift of Discerning of Spirits
  7. The Gift of Prophecy
  8. The Gift Of Speaking in Tounges
  9. The Gift of Interpreting Tounges

 

4.The Holy Spirit Convicts 

If you were to ask a nonbeliever whether they feel “convicted” when they do things they know they should not do, or whether they have a “conscience” or not, chances are they will say yes. This happens because they do have a conscience, they do get convicted, but it is not by a conscience conviction is still by the Spirit of God. This nonbelieving world may not know the Holy Spirit, but that does not mean it does not still work in their lives. Part of the mission of the Holy Spirit’s purpose here on earth is to convict the world of sin, prove the world of God’s pure and perfect righteousness, and warn of impending Judgement.(John 16:8)

5.The Holy Spirit Endows Believers To Do Great Things

When Jesus said in John 14:12, “I tell you the truth, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these”, it was through the power of the Holy Spirit that he planned for the apostles to accomplish them. Just as the 12 were given the ability to do great exploits through the power of the Holy Spirit and as we also go out into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the ends of the earth, the Holy Spirit will also give the ability to do the same.

7 Of The Bibles Greatest Hero’s, Made Some Of Life’s Biggest Mistakes

7 Biblical Characters That Will Make You Feel Better About Yourself.

The bible is full of colorful characters and stories. Not even the most popular people, personalities, or apostle’s lived what could be considered a perfect life. Yet their stories are told unashamedly through their failures, successes, and sins. Even the minor Prophets had some major issues in life, which may make you feel a bit better about how you’re living yours. Here is my top 7

_________________________________

 

# 7 THE ISRAELITES CRIME: [IDOLATRY] When Moses was busy receiving the Commandments from God for the people of Israel, the Israelites, were already busy constructing an Idol for themselves in the form of a Golden Calf.
[The Gold Calf- Exodus
32 Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”
2 And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” 3 So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. 4 And he received the gold from their hand, and fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf.

#6 KING DAVID/ KING SOLOMON CRIME: [CONSPIRACY/ MURDER/ MANIPULATION/ ADULTERY] Apparently womanizing has always been a popular pursuit. Even kings have been caused to stumble, by the batted lash of a beautiful lady. Therefore, it may not surprise you to find that the guy God called “The wisest man ever” had over 1000 foreign wives and concubines. Similarly enough the man God considered, “A man after My own heart” was unrelenting in going after another man’s women. David even went to the extremes of having the woman, Bathsheba’s, husband killed by placing him in harms way on the battlefield.

[Solomon’s Wives – Solomon held fast to these in love. 3He had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines, and his wives turned his heart away. more- 1 Kings 11:3 http://biblehub.com/1_kings/11-3.htm]

[David & Bathsheba- 2 Samuel 11
David remained at Jerusalem. 2 Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold. 3 So David sent and inquired about the woman. And someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” 4 Then David sent messengers, and took her; and she came to him, and he lay with her.

#5 RAHAB THE HARLOT CRIME: [PROSTITUTION]

Perhaps the single most decisive key to the Israelites success during the Battle of Jericho was because of a lady named Rahab. “Rahab the harlot” as she was known as was essentially a madam that ran an Inn atop the wall of Jericho. That being said, her past did not stop her from being used mightily by God in the bible. She was respected amongst the disciples for her exemplary faith, and even mentioned in the genealogical line of David and Jesus.
[Rahab hides Joshua’s Spies- Joshua 2
3 So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country.”
4 Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. 5 And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them.” 6 (But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof.) 7 Then the men pursued them by the road to the Jordan, to the fords. And as soon as those who pursued them had gone out, they shut the gate.

#4 THE APOSTLE PAUL CRIME: [CONSPIRACY/ MURDER] Paul undisputedly holds the title for writing the majority of the New Testament letters so it is worthy of note that he described himself, as the self-proclaimed, “Chief of all Sinners.” Paul, was the one you called if you caught wind of a noisy group of Christians that you wanted to have “taken care of” in those days. An Enforcer of sorts, a murderer certainly (though whether directly or indirectly is a bit unclear) he led countless numbers of people to their demise. One of which named Stephen, whom Paul accused of Blasphemy, and enticed the town into having him stoned to death.
[Death of Stephen the Martyr – Acts 7
57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; 58 and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep

#3 ABRAHAM CRIME: [ADULTERY] On second thought.. maybe Abraham gets a pass on this one, since his wife Sarah pretty much invited him to do it. However, during a bout of faith and impatience regarding the impossibility of having their own children, Sarah allowed Abe to get it on with their young maid. As you can bet, it caused quite a lot of issues amongst the siblings. In the end, Sarah eventually birthed a son of her own named Isaac with her husband. God still credited Abraham’s “great faith” to him as righteousness, along with a very large amount of offspring. So I guess he did get a pass, in more ways than one.
[Abraham & Haggar -Gen 16
16 Now Sarah, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar. 2 So Sarah said to Abram, “See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Abram heeded the voice of Sarah. 3 Then Sarah, Abram’s wife, took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan. 4 So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes.

#2 SAMSON CRIME: [MURDER, WOMANIZING, MORE MURDER] Hands down one of the most interesting characters in the bible, and probably the most relatable in ways is that of Samson. The long hair, the WWFish build, the propensity towards women and alcohol. There are too many stories about him that understandably could make this list, but I’ll stick with one. After being tied up and captured by the perusing Philistines, Samson finds a Jawbone of a Donkey and slaughters a small army of men, and then goes around and brags about it in song.
[Samson defeats the Philistines-Judges 15:
14…. the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands. 15 He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it. 16 Then Samson said: “With the jawbone of a donkey, heaps upon heaps, with the jawbone of a donkey, I have slain a thousand men!”
17 And so it was, when he had finished speaking, that he threw the jawbone from his hand, and called that place Ramath Lehi.
 more- https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Judges%2015&version=NKJV]

 

#1 MOSES CRIME: [MURDER] Probably one of the most retold stories in the entire bible is the story of Moses and the Exodus. Yet for some odd reason, all we ever hear about is the swaddling baby, abandoned by his Mother. While floating down the Nile River he is found by the Queen of Egypt. Feeling sorr for the abandoned boy she decides to raise him like one of her own. However, the part that gets omitted so frequently by popular re-telling’s is the rather grim Murders committed at his hands.
[Moses Flees to Midian – Exodus 2
11 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12 So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

Now if these stories don’t make you feel better about your own life and past mistakes, I don’t know what will. Every character listed God still used to do great things and accomplish much. Most had a unique set of flaws, temptations, and some simply had some straight out problems. The good news was that God used them all for his own purpose, some in legendary and mighty ways. Hopefully that will serve to be an encouragement for you in the future, a reprieve from the past, and when it comes to your own legacy, your mistakes don’t have to make your entire story. Be Blessed.

Devastating Arguments Against Christianity (Courtesy of the Internet)

Posted in Apologetics, Biblical Topics, Current Events, Uncategorized with tags , , on July 13, 2014 by telltheworldtheword

Good Job in addressing some of the most common objections ascribed towards christianity as perpetuated by atheist smear sites.

Well Spent Journey

I’m writing this post primarily for my own convenience. During my online journeys to r/atheism, “freethought” blogs, and beyond, I encounter the following arguments so frequently that it seems sensible to fact-check them all at once.

_____

The Claim: “Religion has been the primary cause of war and oppression throughout the history of mankind.”

photo source: http://radiomankc.blogspot.com/

The Truth: In their comprehensive Encyclopedia of Wars, Phillips and Axelrod document the recorded history of warfare. Of the 1,763 wars presented, a mere 7% involved a religious cause. When Islam is subtracted from the equation, that number drops to 3.2%.

In terms of casualties, religious wars account for only 2% of all people killed by warfare. This pales in comparison to the number of people who have been killed by secular dictators in the 20th century alone.

Heres a riddle..Why did Abel raise sheep

Posted in Biblical Topics, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on June 13, 2013 by telltheworldtheword

 

Abel-Sheep-Offering.jpg

[Answer]

Abel raised sheep for one reason. his whole work life hinged on one thing.

He raised sheep specifically for an offering. For sacrifice. So when Cain gave of ” his sweat of the land” it didn’t mean as much because he gained materially from his work. Abels sacrifice was selfless in nature. Which is why God esteemed his offering over Cain’s. God and the relationship with God was the priority to Abel he worked to continue that relationship. Abel had no benefit in and of himself. he wholly relied on God.

that’s why it pissed off satan(so he enraged Cain with envy to kill Abel) that’s why it pissed off Cain (not understanding the difference of offerings) And that’s why it pleased God.

* Extra tidbit- notice from that point the communion with God in the relationship with people became more and more separated. Cain killed the key to close that separation gap between Gods commune with man.

Amazing.

Interesting Message in the Genealogies of Man

Posted in Biblical Topics, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2013 by telltheworldtheword

From Adam-Noah the names tell a story of redemption.

 

Hello World,

Quick little tidbit.

As we all know biblical names hold special meanings to God as well as to parents and families. Many times a names meaning

can give a prophetic, or overall idea of the life and history of a person. Various times in the bible God changed/ added or shortened the names of people;

and in doing so altered the destiny of a person. Well in examining the name meanings, from the generations of Adam to Noah we see a very interesting and

exciting hidden message uncovered. Check it out.

Adam – Man
Seth – Appointed
Enosh – Mortal
Kenan – Sorrow
Mahalalel – The blessed God
Jared – Shall come down
Enoch – Teaching
Methuselah – His death shall bring
Lamech – Despairing
Noah – Comfort and rest

When we put these meanings into a complete sentence you get: Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow, (but) the blessed God shall come down teaching. His death shall bring (the) despairing comfort and rest.

God never ceases to amaze.

Be blessed.

Blessings or Cursings – The Power of our Words

Posted in Biblical Studies, Biblical Topics, Uncategorized with tags , , on May 2, 2012 by telltheworldtheword
Hello World,
Did you know people can curse you and others without even knowing they’re doing it. Just by the things someone says can have a permanent impact on people. For example have you ever heard a teacher say to a child:
“you’re never going to do anything with your life..”
 
Consciously or not, they are actually cursing the person.

This is why the bible says we will be judged by every word that comes out of our mouth and why the bible places so much emphasis

on the usage of words,commands, authorities, to speak blessings not curses etc.

the word “bless(ing)”  actually occurs about 600 times throughout scripture while “curse(ing)” also appears but only about half that amount.

Words are important for so many aspects of life, so it’s no wonder why God placed creative power in them.  Through words, (and faith) God has even established for us salvation (if you confess with your mouth, and believe with your heart).

Words are the vehicles of supernatural power for good if they are blessings, or for evil if they are cursings.

Word Curses can often be barriers or hinderances to things like healing, and blessings. So  it is important that curses  be dealt with first and foremost. Similar

to how the disciples couldn’t heal the boy until they first dealt with the demon certain deliverance from a curse could be the difference in receiving or not.

Matthew 17:17 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him…..”17:18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment

Curses can carry over generationally if not dealt with appropriately.

Exodus 20:5… visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,

Words are the most powerful things as human beings we have. God created the heavens and earth by words.

In the beginning was THE WORD

There are creative and destructive power in our words.

Let’s see what the bible specifically says about our words.


Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and HEARING BY THE WORD of God.
Revelations 12:11
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the WORD of their testimony;

Proverbs 10:19 When WORDS are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.

Proverbs 12:13 An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk, but a righteous man escapes trouble.

Proverbs 13:3 He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.

Matthew 12:37 For BY YOUR WORDS you will be acquitted, and BY YOUR WORDS you will be condemned.”

Matt 12:36
But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless WORD they have spoken.

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Romans 14:12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell

Psalm 119:89 Your WORD, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.

1 peter 1:25 But the WORD of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the WORD which by the gospel is preached unto you.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Could you be under a curse?
These 7 things can help you determine wether you are

1. mental and/or emotional breakdown
2. repeated or hereditary sickness (since some curses can be generational) especially if doctors can not find a cause
3. in women Barroness, pregnancy or menstral problems.
4.the breakdown of marriage and or family alienation
5.Financial insufficiancy. (constantly) (not occassional)
6.accident prone (with unnatural frequency)
7. in family history of suicides and unnatural deaths*there may be more not included in this list
**if u relate to numerous thing on this list u may be under a curse
————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Take a look at these experiments with the written and spoken word
with rice (written word)
with water(thoughts)
with vocals (sound resonance)
be blessed.

Jesus is not A GOD!

Posted in Apologetics, Atheism, Biblical Archeology, Biblical Studies, Biblical Topics, Current Events, Religions, Statistics/ Studies, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 21, 2012 by telltheworldtheword

JESUS IS GOD!

For anyone to understand this, in a biblical context you have to start at the begining with the prophecies in the old testiment like Isaiah 53

but for this we are going to begin at the revelation of GOD by Moses at the burning bush.

we are focusing on why Jesus ALWAYS refers to himself as I AM. because it was a prophecy of the understanding of who he IS to the jews.

MOSES AND THE BURNING BUSH
(Exodus 3:13-15)

Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you’: this is my name for ever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations

No one has ever seen God keep this in mind.

Jn.5:37: “And the Father himself, who sent me, has borne witness of me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.‘Jesus gives the source of his commission, which is from the Father personally. It is the Fathers voice and form they have not seen, yet Christ has.

When did Moses write of him?
Deut.18:15-19: “The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, “according to all you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God,nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’ “And the LORD said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. ‘I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. ‘And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”

Jesus CLEARLY claims to be the prophet Moses spoke of that should listen to. Notice that it saysthey did not want to hear the voice of the Lord anymore or see his glory in Horeb. Then God says he will put his words in a future prophets mouth if they do not listen to his words, God will require it of him.” This very thing Jesus said of himself in:
Jn.8:24 “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am (He), you will die in your sins

See why his is so important yet….

….Now lets look at some the statements Jesus Made, of himself being I AM in scriptures

John 6:51:”I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever;”

John 8:23: And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I AM from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

John 8:12: Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

John 10:9: “I AM the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”

John 10:11: “I AM the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

John 10:36: “do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

John 11:25: Jesus said to her, “I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

John 14:6: Jesus said to him, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 15:1: “I AM the true vine,and My Father is the vinedresser.

John 19:2: Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.”‘”

Acts 7:32: Stephen speaking of Moses’ encounter at the burning bush “saying, ‘I am the God of your fathers– the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses trembled and dared not look.”

Acts 9:5: And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” And the Lord said, “I am Jesus,whom you are persecuting.” 

The I Am In the Old Testament was whatever man needed. He became, he was his all in all. Jesus in the New Testament uses all these examples to show who He is.

The most important of all the statements is in John 8:24 after he tells them I am not of this world. “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am [He], you will die in your sins.” ( he is not in the original).

He is communicating to them he is the same I AM that Moses met at the burning bush which commissioned his life into a flesh for our sake. HE WAS THE VOICE OF THE BURNING BUSH.
now here is telling us JESUS was the one that brought the israelites out of the land of EGYPT

Jude 1:5 So I want to remind you, though you already know these things, that Jesus[a] first rescued the nation of Israel from Egypt, but later he destroyed those who did not remain faithful.

Footnotes:
[a]Jude 1:5 As in the best manuscripts; various other manuscripts read [the] Lord, or God, or Christ; one reads God Christ.

There is no way around this. Jesus is not a man void of divinity, Jeus is not A GOD among GOD.  JESUS IS GOD.

extra biblical references of who HE [Christ] IS

Titus 2:13 states clearly: “looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.” (Paul makes plain here that Jesus is God our Savior.)

2 Peter 1:1 Peter declares about Jesus Christ that He is our “God and Savior.”

Jesus claims to be the Light of the world, thus the Creator, God Himself (John 9:5).

revelations 7:15
Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

Isa 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon hisshoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 

Heb. 1:2-3, “the brightness of his glory and the express image of his person.”

john 18:4
‘Who is it that you want?’ ‘Jesus of Nazareth,’ they replied. ‘I AM,’ Jesus said

1timothy 3:16
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” 

john 16:18
I came forth from the Father, and have come to the world; again I leave the world, and go on unto the Father.’
John 8:24. “I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I AM, you will indeed die in your sins.”

john 18:5
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

Rom. 1:23, states that Jesus was, “the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made unto corruptible man. 

Philippians 2:6-11
6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God

john 10 27-30
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than alld; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30I and the Father are one.”

jews want to stone him for it and explain why
john 10:33
33“We are not stoning you for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man,claim to be God.”
Acts 14:12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Jesus claims to have life in Himself, immortal life (John 5:26). Paul tells us that only God possesses immortality (1 Tim 6:16)

“I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!”-Revelation 1:17-18

john 5:18
For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God

luke 5:20
When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

5:21
But the Pharisees and teachers of religious law said to themselves, “Who does he think he is? That’s blasphemy! Only God can forgive sins!

phillipian 2:9-11
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father

The LORD says to my lord:[a]“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”(here he is saying he will sit upon the throne of Israel’s God and share God’s very glory)

Worship belongs only to GOD
Matt 4:10″Begone, Satan!” Jesus replied; “for it is written, ‘To the Lord thy God thou shalt do homage, and to Him alone shalt thou render worship

yet jesus allows worship of him
Matthew 28:9
And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

John 9:38 Then he said, “Lord, I believe!” And he worshiped Him

Mark 5:6 When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him.

Matthew 15:25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”

Matthew 2:11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with 
Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

hopefully youll have that lightbulb moment after this. Because I believe the point is now rendered in stone.
