IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS JESUS CLAIMED DIVINE PREROGATIVES ONLY ACCORDED TO GOD. FOR INSTANCE: HE SAID HE “HAS POWER ON EARTH TO FORGIVE SINS”; REMEMBER THAT PREROGATIVE BELONGS TO GOD.
(Mar 2:10-11) But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your h
WHEN HE SAID HE HAS ANGLES AND AT HIS DISPOSALS IS AGAIN ANOTHER DIVINE PREROGATIVE ONLY ACCORDED TO GOD.
(Mat 13:41-42) The Son of Man shall send out His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who do iniquity, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
ANOTHER DIVINE CLAIM ONLY ACCORDED TO GOD IS WHEN HE SAID HE IS THE “LORD OF THE SABBATH”.
(Luke 6:5) Then Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
AND WHEN HE SAID “I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST”, HE PRACTICALLY CLAIMED HE IS GOD.
(Rev 1:17) “When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. “I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST.”
(Rev 1:18) “I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
(Isa 44:6) “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I AM THE FIRST AND I AM THE LAST; BESIDES ME THERE IS NO GOD.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
