Was Jesus God on earth or just an anointed man?

Jesus was and is always God, God cannot change His nature.

In Heb.1:10 The Father speaking of the Son, “And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning has laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands... and they shall be changed: but thou art the same” (quote of Psalm 102:25).

Before his birth - In Micah 5:2: “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler (shepherd) in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

 Scripture tells us from the start of his birth- Isa 7:14Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Immanuel identifying who is by his nature. “and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” This happened when he was conceived” (Matthew 1:23).

 As a human he had to learn and grow like all of us. He was weak in the flesh, became hungry and tired.

1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh”   In other words- He (Deity) was revealed to us through his humanity.

John 1:14: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:18 : “No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.”

It pleased the Father that in Him should dwell all the fullness”(Col.1:19). (Greek- pleroma). Meaning, the totality of the Divine powers and attributes that are God are filled up in Jesus- his omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence.

Philippians 2:6-7 explains to us “who, being in the form of God,(having God’s nature) did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.”

He put aside his independent use of his power and authority and became a servant unto the Father.

 The cults deny that Jesus was ever God before he added a human nature to His deity. The word faith movement teaches that His deity was left in heaven and He came to earth as only a man and was anointed. Because the Spirit rested upon him he was given power, and it can rest on us and we can do all the same miracles he did. They forget that he had NO sin- was perfect and was God before he was born and was God while on earth.  Not even the apostles who were given the authority directlly duplicated his miracles.

Jesus was not a son of God (like us) he was what the Bible applies as “the only begotten Son of God.” In other words he is unique, one of a kind, being both 100% God and 100% man, this is why he was able to live a life of sin lessness and become the sacrifice for our sin.

This is why the Bible says in Rom 9:5According to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen.
