Jesus Christ is the Lord our God

The Scriptures clearly claim and reveal the Lord Jesus Christ as the Jehovah of the Old Testament.

The Lord Jesus Christ who is the Word become flesh is the Jehovah of the Old Testament. The OT appearances or manifestations of God is none other than the appearances or manifestations of the second Person of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Therefore all Theophanies are actually Christophanies.

We prove this in the following ways.

Genesis 1.1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Ref. Ps.96.5, Isa.42.5, 45.8,12,18 with Col.1.16, Jn.1.3, Eph.3.9, Heb.1.2,10 (Psa.45.6-7, 102,24-27)

Isaiah 6.1-5 The prophet Isaiah saw the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. The seraphim cried out, “Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” And Isaiah cries out, “Woe is me! For I am undone, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

Ref. Jn.12.41.

Isaiah 7.14 says, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Ref. Mat.1.23

Isaiah 8.13 says, “Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself, and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.”

Ref. 1Pet.3.15 “Sanctify the Lord the Christ in your hearts…”

Isaiah 9.6-7 says, ”For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God (Gen.49.24, Isa.10.20-21 Jer.32.18), The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Eccl.12.14 ref. 1Cor.4.5

Isaiah 12.2 says, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the LORD, even the LORD, is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”

Ref. Rev.19.11-16 says, “And I saw heaven opened and, behold, a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, (1.5, 3.7,14) and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were like a flame of fire,(1.14, 2.18) and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood;(Isa.63.1-8) and his name is called The Word of God.(Jn.1.1,14) [14] And the armies that were in heaven followed him upon while horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword,(1.16,2.12) that with it he should smite the nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.(Rev.17.14; Deu.10.17; Ps.136.1-4; 1Tim.6.15)
