Check Out Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's Response When He Was Asked "If Jesus Is God"

The General Overseer of Christ Embassy Ministry and renowned Christian Author, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been answering some series of questions from young people across the world.

The popular online programme which is tagged “Ask Pastor Chris”, has been attracting hundreds of questions worldwide.

In one of the episodes, an Indonesian man asked a controversial question which has stirred up a lot of divided opinions on social media recently. The man asked, "Is Jesus God or not? I know its a provoking question but I was talking to some Muslim people and they said that, if I check the Bible I will see no Bible verse where Jesus claim to be God and when I looked, it was not there. So, what's your opinion about that?"

Here is Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's response to the controversial question:

"In John14v8, Phillip asked Jesus, 'Lord, show us the father and that will be enough for us' and in verse 9, Jesus answered, 'Don't you know me Phillip, even after I have been among you such a long time. Anyone who has seen me has seen the father. How can you say, show us the Father'.

Let's read Colossians 1v15, "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and in earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him and for Him."

The "He" in the verse is talking about Jesus. Jesus is the image of the invisible God. It says, Jesus created all things in heaven. Do you understand? The verse is telling you that Jesus created Angels. All things are created by Him and for Him.

When you read this scripture, you will make up your mind on who Jesus really is. If you want to know who Jesus is, just read the scripture and you will understand who He is. He is more than a great man and to call Jesus a great man is an insult. Don't you get it? He created all things, both visible and invisible in heaven and in earth and the Bible says, all things were created by Him and for Him. Never you forget that verse.

Let's read further, Colossians 1v17-18 says, "He is before all things and in Him all things consist." This verse is a description of God. If you want to know the meaning of God, that scripture is the true definition of God. If you are asked, who God is and If there is a God? Colossians 1v17-18 just gives you the definition of God.

The Bible verse says, all things have their existence in Him. Meaning, God is the source and sustainer of all things. If there is a God, that God must be the source and sustainer of all things. Which means, in Him all things should not only have their origin but their continuance.

So, what you just read in the scripture is revealing who Jesus is and I tell people, you will never find a place in the Bible that says, "Jesus is God" directly, but there is no one who truly studies the Bible, that will not come in the conclusion that Jesus is God."
