THE WORD IS GOD

cross (2)

JESUS CHRIST THE WORD IS ALSO LORD GOD.

.

JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing 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.

1 JOHN 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned

The Jehovah’s Witnesses LIE AND FALSELY  deny that Jesus is God in flesh. Therefore, they have produced a false Bible, the New World Translation, that reflects their theological bias against Christ’s deity. But, their Bible cannot completely remove all the references that show who Jesus really is. Such is the case with the phrase, “to call upon the name of the Lord.”

We can see in the Bible where the Old Testament believers “call upon the name of the Lord,” as a reference to God. Literally, in Hebrew this is “call upon the name of Jehovah [YHWH].” This phrase with its variations “calling upon…” and “called upon…” etc., occurs eleven times in the Old Testament in the King James Version, “Jehovah” is an English(ized) form of the Hebrew four letters YHWH from which we get God’s name “Jehovah” or “Yahweh.” Most modern English Bibles translate the four letters “YHWH” into the word “Lord.” This is done because no one knows the true pronunciation of God’s name and also because the Jews wanted to avoid violating the sacredness of God’s name if they pronounced it incorrectly. Nevertheless, in every instance of this usage “Lord” in the Hebrew phrase, “call upon the name of the Lord,” it is the Hebrew “YHWH” in the original and is always in reference to God and to God, the everlasting God, alone.

When we look at this phrase in the Old Testament, we see that “to call upon the name of the Lord” was used to designate prayer to God in 1 Kings 18:24,37 and Psalm 116:4. Please consider the following verses from the KJV: •1 Kings 18:24, “And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD [YHWH]: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.” ◦1 Kings 18:37-38, “Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD [YHWH] God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. 38Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.”

•Psalm 116:4, “Then called I upon the name of the LORD [YHWH] ; O LORD [YHWH], I beseech thee, deliver my soul.”

Clearly, the phrase is used of God in reference to prayer to Him. The phrase is never used in reference to anyone else other than God. Remember that “call upon the name of the Lord [YHWH]” in Hebrew was translated into Greek by the Jews in the LXX and they rendered “YHWH” into the Greek “kurios,” which means “lord.” This phrase was then used of Jesus in 1 Cor 1: 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is clear evidence that Jesus is called YHWH since the same phrase used to address God is also used to address Jesus.

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD GOD.

Furthermore, in 2 Timothy he charged Timothy to pursue spiritual things “with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22).
