Jesus Christ said: “I am the way, truth, and life: no man come through unto the Father but by me”


Introduction:

I am the way, the truth, and life. John 14.6. Jesus said unto Thomas, one of the Apostles: I am the way, the truth, and the life. Believers in Jesus Christ, how much do we understand this saying of Jesus Christ?

Jesus Christ with His apostles, He was telling them about His kingdoms on this planet earth and the Heavens of heavens.

John 14 started with Jesus consoling His apostles because of what He told them in the previous chapter about Him going back to heaven from where He came.

John 13. 33-36:

33. Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
34. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another.
36. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him,
Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me afterward.

1.


In this verse 35, Jesus Christ told them plainly that He is going back to heaven from where He came and that the disciples will follow Him after. But Peter being Peter asked Jesus where is He going.

Jesus explained Peters’s question saying again that they cannot follow Him now but Peter insisted that he will follow Him.

Jesus told Peter what will happen to him that very night that Jesus would be taken by the elders, the priests for crucifixion. Although the whole scenario was not at first clear to the apostles.


Going back to chapter 14, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and life”. Let us ask ourselves why will Jesus say He is the way to God. Well, the answer is in John 10.7-9.

7. Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8. All that ever came before I am thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9. I am the door: by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

2.


Every believer in Jesus Christ is described as a sheep and Christ is their shepherd. This word shepherd makes Jesus Christ God.  How? One may be asked.

Psalms 80: 1-19.

1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen and planted it.
9 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea and her branches unto the river.
12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

3.


14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.


Psalm 100:3
Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Psalm 95:7
For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand Today if you would hear His voice.

Psalm 79:13
So we, Your people and the sheep of Your pasture Will give thanks to You forever; To all generations, we will tell of Your praise.

4.


Ezekiel 34:31
“As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God,” declares the Lord GOD.

Genesis 48:15
He blessed Joseph, and said, “The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day.

Psalms 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will
dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Now let’s talk about Jesus Christ the truth and the Almighty God.

John 15.26
26. But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

In the above passage, Jesus Christ said that He will send the comforter from the Father which is the Spirit of truth. Jesus Christ the truth will send the Spirit of truth.

With the Power of the Holy Spirit, here Jesus is talking in the sender, yet he is Jesus Christ and as the Father, yet Jesus Christ. Christ is the truth and He comes as the Spirit of truth or comforter.

Do you see the analogy here? Jesus the truth sending Himself as the Spirit of truth or the comforter. He acted as the sender of the Spirit of truth from the Father which He is.

Jesus  Christ is surely the Father.  Jesus Christ is the Father. You can only understand this by the power of the Holy Spirit. You will understand it more in the scriptures below. Please ask the Holy Spirit to empower you, pray without ceasing and fast. To know that Jesus Christ is God, you need the power of the Holy Spirit.

6.


John 16.13-15.

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Below you can see that it is only the Holy Spirit that can make you know the truth about Jesus Christ as the Almighty God.

John 16.7.

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

This scripture makes it clearer. Jesus Christ says to the apostles that it is expedient for them or us that He goes back to Heaven. Why? So that He can send the Holy Spirit Here Jesus Christ is the sender of the Holy Spirit or Comforter, yet He is the Comforter Himself. In the gospel of John 1.1-5.

Revelation 1.8

8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1.11-18

11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many drinks of water.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
You can see from the above passages, how Jesus Christ portrayed Himself as the Almighty God the truth.

8.


John 1:1-15

1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was at the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

8 And when he has come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Here Jesus Christ says that the comforter will receive of Him and show it to us.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

9.


Then in the above passage verse 15, He actually made Himself the Father the owner of all things.

In the gospel of John 14.7-9. in Verse 7, Jesus Christ plainly told the apostles that He is the Father. How? Jesus was standing before them as a grownup man and Philip ask Jesus Christ to show them the Father.

Jesus Christ stood before them as a man told them He is the Father. What can be plainer than that?. It takes the Holy Spirit to make you understand the teachings of Jesus Christ. How He portrayed Himself in a very unique and in an analogical way, and logically.

He speaks in metaphors. He speaks in proverbs. He speaks in riddles. You have to ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten you. That is why Jesus Christ say those who worship God must worship Him in Spirit and truth.

The Holy Spirit is our teacher, master, instrument, instructor, comforter, advocate, and Paraclete. He is God. John 4.24, He told the Jews that He was the “ I am” in the burning bush in the book of Exodus. He told the Jews that He was before Abraham and that Abraham saw His days and was glad John 8.56-58.

10.


56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Jesus Christ plainly presented Him as the Father with these words “ he that hath seen Me hath seen the father” I tell you the truth, I cannot say categorically that if you had seen me, you have seen my father.

Neither can you. I or you may look like our fathers but we can never-never be our fathers. When Jesus Christ claimed He is the Father, He is definitely the Father. Look no further, Jesus Christ is the Almighty God.

Now let’s talk about Jesus Christ, the life that is in everything in the heavens of heavens and on the earth, in the seas, rivers, lakes, and under the earth.

John 1: 4 -5

4. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.


Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

11.


Genesis 2:7

Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.

Job 33:4

The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Nehemiah 9:6

You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

1 Timothy 6:13

I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate.

Job 10:12

You have granted me life and loving kindness, And Your care has preserved my spirit.

12.


Jeremiah 38:16

But King Zedekiah swore to Jeremiah in secret saying, “As the LORD lives, who made this life for us, surely I will not put you to death nor will I give you over to the hand of these men who are seeking your life.”

Ezekiel 16:6

“When I passed by you and saw you squirming in your blood, I said to you while you were in your blood, ‘Live!’ Yes, I said to you while you were in your blood, ‘Live!’

Deuteronomy 32:39

See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

1 Samuel 2:6

The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.

2 Kings 5:7

When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes and said, “Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man is sending word to me to cure a man of his leprosy? But consider now, and see how he is seeking a quarrel against me.”

13.


Psalm 36:9

For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

Malachi 2:5

My covenant with him was one of life and peace, and I gave them to him as an object of reverence; so he revered Me and stood in awe of My name.

Psalm 63:3

Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.

Revelation 11:11

But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them.

JESUS CHRIST THE OMNIPRESENT, OMNIPOTENT AND THE OMNISCIENCE.

If you search the whole bible from Genesis to Revelation with the power of the Holy Spirit, you will find that Jesus Christ is nothing less than the above.

All those who truly believe in Jesus Christ should honour Him by obeying all His words and observing His seven feasts days in the book of Leviticus chapter 23.1-44.

14.


His Sabbath, which Jesus Christ Himself referred to in Mark 2.27 and 28, and His new year in Exodus 12 and 13. These are the things that He used to differentiate all believers in Jesus Christ from this wicked world that Satan rules and governed instead of the worldly feasts days of the Papacy, the head of the Roman Catholic Churches.

There you will read the articles on this website www.jesuschristcomingforhischurchagain.com . Jesus Christ says if you love me, obey my commandments. John 14. 15.

Every word of Jesus Christ is Jesus Christ Himself John 1.1. Believers all over the word said that the Commandments of God are nailed to the cross or attributed to the Jews or are completely obsolete.

If they were, why will God write them on our hearts Hebrews 10.16? The facts are that the Ten Commandments cannot save anybody in this world or in the next world. But we need the commandments to live godly lives.

Though we believers in Jesus Christ obey these commandments unawares, for instance, no true believers will worship images, or go to rob a bank, commit adultery, covet, or kill, or lie or be disobedient to parents, all these we keep and many more but at the same time denying them, how can these be my sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers in the joint faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Faith and works are married to each other and we must do what Jesu Christ said through the gospel of James 2.8-18.
