More Proof of Christ's Deity and of the Trinity

Scripture clearly informs us about Christ's deity and the nature of the Trinity. This one-minute devotion explains.

In Part 1 we discussed how John 1
Genesis 1, and Colossians 1:15-17 combine to prove that Christ is part of the Trinity, preexistent, present at creation, and fully God. 

Because the deity of Christ and the Trinity are denied by Christian cults and other false religions, it's important that we understand what Scripture teaches. So let's look at further proof.

Christ's deity:

1. In Titus 2:12-14 Paul specifically refers to Christ as God.

2. In John 20:26-29 Thomas refers to Christ as God and Christ says those who believe this are blessed.

3. Hebrews 1 applies a number of divine descriptions to Christ.

4. Isaiah 9:6 is a prophecy of Christ that calls Him God. 

5. God calls Himself I Am to Moses in Exodus 3:14, and Jesus identifies Himself by saying Before Abraham was born, I am in John 8:58

6. In John 5:18 the Pharisees were angry with Christ because they knew He was claiming to be God.

The Trinity, one God in three Persons:

1. When Jesus was baptized each member of the Trinity was present (Matthew 3:16-17).

2. In the Great Commission, Christ tells us to baptize believers in the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

3. We see the unified mission of the Trinity throughout Scripture. For example: John 14:261 Peter 1:1-2Ephesians 4:4-6.
We live in times of great apostasy and compromise, dear Christians. Let's make sure we know God's Word.


Notes: There are other Scriptures that reinforce these truths, but these should give us a good start in refuting false beliefs. 

Mormons deny both Christ's deity and the Trinity. See 8 Beliefs You Should Know about Mormons. Please pray that the producer of The Chosen will stop promoting the false belief that his Mormon friends worship the same Jesus as evangelical Christians. See Amazing Contradictions
Besides the Christian cults which deny Christ's deity and the Trinity, there is a false belief called Modalism which does not deny Christ's deity but teaches that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three separate ways that God represents Himself, not three distinct persons in the Godhead. Matthew 3:16-17 refutes this belief because all three are present at the same time at Christ's baptism.
