tom2: "remembering that jesus healed the sick,raised the dead,calmed the seas,and was crucified,and himself resurrected,all as proof of who he was,yes,the words in this epistle are words of a witness ,namely paul."

Jesus didn't do any of those.

It was God the Father working through Jesus because he said he can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

John 5:30
John 8:28
John 14:10

And christians have the power to do greater miracles than Jesus. John 14:10

Reference-Phillipians 2:6 ( the word nature) Who being in very "nature" God did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,but made himself nothing,taking the very nature of a servant,being made in human likeness. John 1,1--and the Word was with God,and the Word was God. Remember though no one can see God and live Exodus 33:20 and John 1:18 no man has seen God at any time:the only begotten son which is in the bosom of the Father,he has declared him. From these verses it shows Jesus is in the "nature" of God but not the likeness of God being human. John 10:30 I and my father are one. 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven,the Father,the Word(Jesus),and the Holy Ghost:and these three are one.

Yes I believe it does. Add to that John, where we hear that "in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word Was God." Reading 1ST chap of John we see that Jesus is the Word and God. He was with God before creation and was actually responsible for speaking all things into existence. It was the Word of the Word that formed the worlds. Jesus who is also God.

This scripture is primarily showing how God wants *us* to be in our minds. Jesus was in Heaven, itself, but He was so unconceited, that He came here to reach us so He can share all He has with us. And now He wants us to leave any little heavens we might have, and reach to any and all in such love that is so unconceited, that Jesus so superior to us did not judge about who is worth loving. So, this is the main thing, here, that God wants of us. So, I'm concerned how I see so much attention going to a doctrinal controversy, instead of to having us obey what this passage is saying. The Holy Spirit could have simply given a direct statement, "Jesus is God," if this was what this passage was mainly intended to call to our attention.

Jesus is The Father's Divine tangible expression of Himself. His only begotten Son, as His only off-spring, His Word, brought forth directly of Himself.
Who, 'being' ("hyparch - begin) 'in' (en-with) the 'form' (morph-nature of God,) 'thought it not' (geomai ou-did not consider it) 'robbery' (harpagmos-something to be seized) 'to be' (einai-to exist) 'equal' (isos-in a similar quality) with 'God' (theos-Divinity)
With the words defined in the original language in which they were uttered, the verse reads thusly.
Jesus, The Christ, "Who begin with the nature of Divinity, did not consider it something to be seized, existing in the similar quality of being Divine."

Yhwh, he God, none else. Yeshuah (Jesus) says: Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came into being, I Am. For I am The Lord. I level my life, and I raise it again. I am The Almighty. He that has seen me has seen The Father. And no one always stepped in heaven except he out of heaven came down, the Son of man who from being in the heaven. And Jesus went to them, walking on the sea, and said, Take courage: I am, be not afraid. I am Light to the world. I am from above, I am not of this world: for if you all believe not that I Am, you all will die in your sins. Which of you maligns me of sin? I am the door, by me if anyone enter in, that one will be Saved. I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep.

The New Testament has many verses that you should read. Check out the teachings you receive to see if they are the truth according to God or just the words of a man who thinks he knows God. Too many preachers teach only what they were taught in their school and have never read the Bible. I have heard teachers say things that are not in God's word. Revelations say "In the last days people will want their ears tickled." They need to have their hearts moved from lukewarm to wholeheartedly seeking God. God will help do this if you ask.

Not only that scripture proves that Jesus Is The Almighty God, here also, 1st. Tim 3 v 16 & Jesus Christ Is His Name.
---Lawrence on 1/16/10

It states that Jesus is the almighty son of God because God gave Jesus something he did not have previously.However If one sees Jesus then they have seen God.
Jesus is the living lens whereby we may see God and know God's will,character,nature,personality and divine love .To know God on a human level we must first realize that Jesus revealed God .

Philippians 2.5-11 may be my favorite Bible passage. It shows that at the end of the ages the whole universe will be reconciled to God in Christ Jesus, and everyone will have heartfelt recognition of Him as their Lord.
