Jesus Christ is Elohim, I AM; why is this truism eternally relevant concerning your life in Time and in Eternity?
IS it essential that one searching the Scriptures seeking eternal life by faith believe that Jesus Christ is Elohim, our Creator, in order to honor the Father’s will concerning faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, for the remission of sin? NO!
Our Heavenly Father is compassionately willing to accept you just as your are, filthy, spiritually ignorant, but possessing a virtuous heart willing to believe and trust in Jesus Christ as Messiah, Lord, Savior, Redeemer, believing that Jesus suffered and died to pay your sin-debt owed the Father, a debt that you could never pay yourself.
The Father is willing to accept this faith contractually and enter into covenant relationship with you and assign you His Holy Spirit to take-up residence within you (Ephesians 1:13-14; John 14:16) and initiate a good-work in your life by cleaning away the filth and stains of the defiled World making you a New Man or a New Woman (2 Corinthians 5:17) who aligns with the Father’s will as the Holy Spirit becomes your Teacher, Tutor, Guide, Intercessor, in the daily process of transformation referred to theologically as “sanctification” (Galatians 5:16).
It is during the life-long process of sanctification that the Holy Spirit tutors you and prepares you for service in the New Jerusalem as a servant of Elohim, forever (1 John 2:27). One of the most relevant lessons taught by the Spirit to the faithful in Jesus Christ is the necessity for Messiah’s deity and the Spirit opens one’s eyes to the irrefutable truth that Jesus Christ is Elohim, I AM, God, in flesh and could be no less (Genesis 1; John 1; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1).
Anyone who is truly redeemed by faith in Jesus as their Lord and is walking in covenant relationship with the Father and the Holy Spirit is their Tutor, Teacher, they will know without a shadow of doubt that Jesus is Elohim our Creator (Genesis 1), our Warrior (Genesis 3:15; 1 John 3:8b) and our Messiah (John 3). The faithful in Jesus will know their God, Immanuel, and worship Him as same.
A compassionate warning,
If you name the Name of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior but you do not see the necessity for His deity; if you name the Name of Jesus Christ as your Savior but do not believe that Jesus is I AM, God, Elohim, you are NOT redeemed from sin, you do NOT possess the Holy Spirit who is Guarantor of covenant relationship (Ephesians 1:13-14); therefore, if you’re absent the Holy Spirit, you remain in your sin (John 8:24) and you are therefore on your own and on the road to Perdition where you will ultimately lose both body and soul in Hell subsequent the Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15).
Conclusion to the matter,
Jesus said that you would know them by their fruit; that is, their works, they way the act but the tell-tale fruit of the Christian that differentiates them from every religion, sect, cult, in the entire World is this, the true Christian knows intuitively through the Spirit that Jesus Christ is I AM, eternally.
