Jesus Christ Was the
God of the Old Testament
Most either haven’t given much thought to or don’t understand the identity of the God who spoke to people in the Old Testament. Yet Jesus Christ clearly revealed the answer.
Many consider the God they read about in the Old Testament to be harsh and vindictive.
This view may be based on simply reading some of the well-known stories of the Old Testament. God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and destroyed the earth with a flood. He sent plagues on ancient Egypt and directed Israel to conquer Canaan through war. And He punished Israel and Judah through captivity by foreign nations. Many interpret these as the actions of a stern God of retribution and justice.
There are TWO versions of JESUS: the earthly one who lived as a SERVANT and as the ultimate EXAMPLE for us and who died as a SINLESS, and relatively YOUNG man for all of us and who shed His atoning BLOOD for our SINS, and who rose from the dead, and there's an ETERNAL and VERY OLD JESUS, who is GOD ALMIGHTY:
Revelation 1:12-20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
12 Then I turned back to see the voice that spake with me: and when I was 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 feet, and girded about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and hairs were white as white wool, and as snow, and his eyes were as a flame of fire,
15 And his feet like unto fine brass burning as in a furnace: and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword, and his face shone as the sun shineth in his strength.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead: then he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not: I am that first and that last,
18 And am alive, but I was dead: and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen: and I have the keys of hell and of death.
19 Write these things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall come hereafter.
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks, is this, The seven stars are the Angels of the seven Churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest, are the seven Churches.
I rather read the word ASSEMBLY (assemblies) than the word 'church': The word CHURCH derives from the word CIRCLE or CIRCUS! https://ezekiel38rapture.blogspot.com/2016/09/the-word-church-derives-from-word.html
Revelation 1:20 World English Bible (WEB)
20 the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lamp stands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven assemblies. The seven lamp stands are seven assemblies.
Daniel 7:9 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
I beheld till the thrones were set up, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels, as burning fire.
Daniel 7:13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
As I beheld in visions by night, behold, one like the son of man came in the clouds of heaven, and approached unto the Ancient of days, and they brought him before him.
Daniel 7:22 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the Saints of the most High: and the time approached, that the Saints possessed the kingdom.
WHO is this ANCIENT OF DAYS???
JESUS means 'I AM SALVATION' and 'I AM' is the short version of the NAME of God: 'I AM THAT I AM=YHWH
Do you SEE IT?
JESUS is G O D !!!
And God is JESUS !!!
He and God (the FATHER) are ONE
And He's also the God of ISRAEL.
Get to know Him as such!
