The Names and Titles of Jesus

As we press into the Christmas Season, we must remind ourselves what this time is all about or perhaps I should say, "Who it is about?"  Christmas and the Holidays are about the Deity and Lordship of Jesus.  Christmas is about when God came down to us when we couldn’t get to Him.  Christmas isn’t about a good man; it’s about Jesus the Divine Son of God coming to redeem us from our sins.

I want to give you some scriptures and divine names and titles ascribed to Jesus that prove He is by nature, divine and a member of the Godhead:

EMMANUEL (Matt. 1:23)…GOD (John1:1)...LORD (Luke 19:34)...LORD OF ALL (Acts 10:36)...LORD OF GLORY (1 Cor. 2:8)...WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE (Isa. 9:6,7)...THE LORD’S CHRIST (Luke 2:26)...SON OF GOD (Rom. 1:4)…HIS SON (John 3:16-18)...MY SON (Matt. 3:17)...ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (John 1:18)...ALPHA AND OMEGA, BEGINNING AND THE END, FIRST AND LAST (Rev. 22:13)...THE LORD (Acts 9:17)...SON OF THE HIGHEST (Luke 1:32)...BREAD OF GOD (John 6:33)...HOLY ONE OF GOD (Mark 1:24)...THY HOLY CHILD JESUS (Acts 4:30)...KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS (Rev. 19:16)...LORD AND SAVIOR (2 Peter 3:2)...WORD OF GOD (Rev. 19:13).

Now make this confession:

"Jesus is my Lord.  My Lord is called... Emmanuel... God...Lord of All...Lord of Glory... Wonderful... Counselor...Mighty God...Everlasting Father...Prince of Peace...The Lord's Christ...Son of God...His Son...Only Begotten Son...Alpha and Omega... Beginning and the End...First and Last...The Lord... Son of the Highest...Bread of God...Holy One of God...Thy Holy Child Jesus...King of kings and Lord of lords...Lord and Savior...Word of God. That's who my Lord is!  No wonder satan cannot dominate me!"
