Does Isa Mesih Say, “I Am God”

Nowhere Does Isa Mesih Say, “I Am God, Worship Me.”

If a man came to you and said, “I am God, worship me,” would you believe him? Would you worship him?

Most people would call a person making such a claim an impostor and a blasphemer. Someone who would make such a statement would be called insane. Isa Mesih knows this and saw no reason to make such a claim. But He did make the claim in indirect ways. This evidence is just as clear as if He’d given the statement.

Clear Evidence

What really matters is not the existence of this literal statement, but that there is clear evidence that Isa Mesih is indeed God. If there is clear proof that He is God, then you must worship Him.  This is true even if the way he gave the command is not the way you think it should be. We cannot tell God how to reveal Himself!

One proof of Isa Mesih’s deity is found in John. Jesus says, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies” (Injil, John 11:25). Isa Mesih’s offer of eternal life is conditional on faith in Himself. If anyone but God said this it would be blasphemy.

Later in John, Isa proved His authority for this claim of deity. “When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, ‘Take off the grave clothes and let him go’” (Injil, John 11:43-44).

When you read the Gospels carefully you will find consistently that:

* Isa Isa Mesih talks like he is God.
* Isa Isa Mesih acts like he is God.
* Isa Mesih does miracles like he is God.

The Disciple’s Question

After three years, one of Isa Mesih’s disciples asked Isa to show Him the Father (Allah). Isa answered, “…Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. … Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves” (Injil, John 14:10-11).

Isa Mesih’s True Nature

Isa Mesih expected those around Him to recognize His true nature and identity from His words, which are only appropriate for God to speak. Isa’s deeds also gave testimony to His true nature. Isa Al- Isa Mesih gives proof of who He is, and then lets you draw your own conclusions.

Anyone could make the claim to be God, and many have. Only the true God can give true evidence for it. If a person has the evidence, the proof that He is God, there is no reason to explicitly demand worship.

Isa Mesih’s real identity is established by the proofs He gives, not by the claims others make. After He has given the evidence, there is no longer need for a statement. Those who are open to the truth will recognize the evidence. Those who ignore the evidence won’t be convinced even if he adds a specific statement to worship him.

If you recognize Isa Mesih’s true identity, worshiping Him is only proper. It is an automatic response. Even though Isa Mesih never demanded worship, He accepted it and confirmed it as proper.

His True Nature Shows the Value of His Greatest Gift

Isa Mesih is God. Yet, as God, a member of the Triune Godhead, He gave himself to die on the cross. Why?  Because of His great love for you.

By accepting that He, Isa Mesih, was punished in your place, you can receive and enjoy a new life and eternal life!
