How Can I Know Jesus is the Son of God?

God Himself is the perfect witness of Jesus being the Son of God.  His testimony is absolutely true. 

Jehovah Witnesses claim to be witnesses of God.  But their claim is false and a lie.  They do not believe in the one true God.  They do not hold to a Biblical understanding of who Jesus Christ is. 

They believe Jesus was created and was previously Michael the angel.  They don’t believe that Jesus was fully God and fully man.  They don’t believe that Christ’s life, death, and resurrection is the only source of salvation.

The Jehovah Witness religion was started in 1879 by Charles Russell and Judge Rutherford, and their religion is also known as the Watchtower Bible Society.  According to the book of 1 John, they are liars and antichrists.  They preach a different gospel and they are idolaters because they have the wrong Jesus.  They have made up their own version of Jesus. 

They believe that to be saved you must witness door to door and be baptized as a Jehovah Witness which is a works righteous system.  It’s clear from Scripture that we can do nothing to earn our salvation.  They do not believe that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.  They believe that heaven is limited to 144,000 and this number has already been reached.  But if you live a perfect life on earth for 1,000 years you can escape being annihilated.  Good luck on that one. 

1 John 5:9-12 says, “If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.  He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.  And this is the testimony:  that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.  He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

God gives us three perfect witnesses as absolute proof that Jesus is His Son.  1 John 5:8 says, “And there are three that bear witness on earth:  the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.”

The water refers to Christ’s baptism, the blood refers to Christ’s death, and the Spirit refers to the work of the Holy Spirit in and through Christ’s life.  All three testify that Christ is without question God’s Son. 

Truth can only come from God.  Only the Christian Biblical worldview allows for truth coming from the one true God.  Any other worldview has to base their ideas on the mind of fallen man.  Romans 3:3-4 says, “For what if some did not believe?  Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect?  Certainly not!  Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar.”

Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.”  Titus 1:2 says, “God cannot lie.”  The absolute proof is “thus says the Lord.”  God’s Word is perfect and true.  Always has been, always will be. 

Mark 14:61-62 says, “Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?”  Jesus said, “I am.  And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”  Jehovah Witnesses do not believe that Jesus is coming back.  But He will return one day and on that day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  (Phil. 2:10-11)

Jesus is the only way to the Father.  Salvation is only found in Him.  If you distort or diminish His nature you call Him a liar and therefore, the life of God and the truth of God are not in you.

But the gospel is, if you repent of your sins, repent of a works righteous system, repent of having a distorted view of Christ, and place all your trust in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Eternal, Creator, Sovereign, King, Lord, and Savior, He will forgive you, He will save you, and He will grant you everlasting life.  Do it today before it’s too late.
