The Deity of Christ

Ezekiel 11:5 And the Spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.

The word of God is chock full of proofs for the deity of Jesus Christ. Someone who denies this fundamental doctrine either (1) just doesn’t believe the Bible or (2) has chosen to ignore the clear teaching of literally hundreds of passages in favor of a few passages taken out of context and misinterpreted.

The verse above makes reference to the fact that God knows our every thought. Now that’s a scary thing to think about and something we ought to keep in mind as we strive to obey 2 Corinthians 10:5. But beyond that, we can add it to the list of things that prove the fact that Jesus Christ, possessing the attributes of deity, is indeed GOD manifest in the flesh.

And here are some references to go along with it, if you’d like to add them to your list.

God knows man’s thoughts. 1 Chronicles 28.19; Psalm 94.11; Isaiah 66.18; Ezekiel 11.5; 1 Corinthians 3.20; Hebrews 4.12-13

Jesus Christ knows man’s thoughts. Matthew 9.4; 12.25; Mark 2.8; Luke 5.22; 6.8; 9.47; 11.17; 24.38; John 2.25

I’m sure there are more along these lines. Send me some references, and we’ll add them to the list.
