God The Father; God The Son; God The Holy Spirit

John 10:27-30 (New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Jesus Asserts His Deity (“I and the Father are one”)

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

John 14:7-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Oneness with the Father (“If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father”)

7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”
8 Philip *said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus *said to him,“Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.

John 14:16-26 New American Standard Bible (NASB) (Selected verses)

Role of the Spirit (“the indwelling unity of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and all other believers in Christ”)

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also. 20 In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
25 “These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit,whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Introduction – Jesus said, “I am the only Way to Salvation.”

This message is written for all of my friends who reside in nations all around the world. Jesus is God! The “religious leaders” who have lived from the beginning of time are dead and gone. Their graves are usually marked by some sort of shrine; their bones stay in their graves until those bones decayed. The difference with Jesus is that His tomb has been empty ever since His resurrection, three days after His crucifixion.” And, do you know what? His bones were never left in the tomb to decay. He never suffered decay! (Acts 2:27). He has risen from the dead! He is alive! (Luke 24:1-7) And, He lives within every person’s spirit who knows Him (Jesus) as their Lord and Savior (John 14:20). Eternal life with God begins at the very exact moment that a person comes to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior (John 17:3). No one has to prove their love to God by doing “anything,” except by believing in Jesus with a belief of trust that He is their Lord and Savior (John 3:16). Jesus is love (1 John 4:18). He is not a vengeful God who tells His followers to kill people who don’t believe that He is God; but, it is true that Jesus is God (Isaiah 7:14/Matthew 1:18-25; John 10:30; John 14:9). Here is a very stern warning. Jesus is the only way for anyone to have eternal life in Heaven (John 14:6). Otherwise, a person’s eternity is in the Lake Of Fire (Revelation 20:15) that burns forever and ever (Revelation 20:10). Won’t you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior?

The Perfect Stranger Movie – Jesus Is God

“THE PERFECT STRANGER” tells the story of Nikki, a troubled attorney who one day receives a mysterious dinner invitation from a man claiming to be Jesus of Nazareth. Throughout their evening of conversation, arguments and spirited debate, Nikki learns things she never knew about life, the universe, and most importantly, herself. Written by Pate Walters.

Consider how you would react if you were to have an invitation to have dinner with Jesus. What if you had been having a bad day? What would you think about the invitation? What would you think about your first meeting with Jesus? Would you have any questions for Him? What would those questions be? The introduction to the movie, “The Perfect Stranger,” will prepare you for the complete movie that will follow. Follow the way that Jesus relates and reacts to the situation at hand. It is important for us to understand the meaning of the scripture:

“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest,” (Matthew 11:28).

As you watch “The Perfect Stranger” consider the way that Jesus approaches Nikki and presents Himself as God. If you were to have a similar encounter with Jesus, what would you expect it to be like? Consider that Jesus is “God with us,” and that God’s Holy Spirit is involved in every incident where an unbeliever is being drawn to make a decision as to whether they will accept or reject Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. The invitation is easily accepted:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life,” (John 3:16).

One thought on “Dinner With Jesus – Think About It

  1. the connection is too slow to view the video clip, but i am sure that i’s very moving… it would be wonderful to have dinner with jesus, no matter if my day had been horrid or amazingly positive! just being in His presence would turn a bad day into a good one, but can you imagine how much wisdom he would pass on to even-the-most close-minded person?

    thanks for the link, which i’ll try to watch another day.
