Indeed we are in the last days, when those who once profess the faith, will deny the faith they once professed, making a shipwreck of their faith and that of others?
Our Christian Faith is what we are enjoined to earnestly contend because of many erroneous teachings coming from different quarters in this last days.
The recent augment from Reno Omokri, who claims himself as a pastor that Jesus is not God must be replied to
Why Jesus is God
1. Been a Son of God makes JESUS God. One of the bones of contention the Jews had with Jesus, is that He called Himself the SON OF GOD. The Jews understood that once someone claims that attribute of BEING THE SON OF GOD, that PERSON IS GOD
Joh_5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.
Joh 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Joh 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
Joh 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
2.The Father proclamation about Jesus Himself: In the book of Hebrews 1, The author, through the inspiration of the HOLY SPIRIT reveals that Jesus is superior to prophets and angels and also reveals the mind of God about Jesus Himself.
Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
God says about his Son (Jesus) that He is God. This particular verse reveals that God himself called Jesus his Son and also refers to HIM as GOD (Thy Throne of GOD)
3. The Attribute of Jesus HIMSELF: In the Book of revelation, Jesus reveals himself to John the Apostle, his beloved disciple who HE is
Rev 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
These revealed attributes of Jesus are the very attribute of God.
God is the Alpha and Omega
God is the Beginning and Ending
God is the Almighty …This is very attribute God revealed Himself to Abraham in Genesis17:1
4. The Testimony of the Scripture:
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:14 And the Word was made 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.
It is only Jesus who became flesh, who was with God in the beginning!
5. Only God can forgive sin, and we see Jesus forgiving people their sins.
Mar 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
Mar 2:6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
Mar 2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
There are more reasons from the Holy Scripture why Jesus is God, but for brevity sake, I wish to drop my pen here.
Thanks, comments and contributions are welcomed

No man has the power to add or subtract from the scriptures, except Jesus.
Notice where Jesus said, you have heard, thus shall not kill, but I say unto you......
You have heard thou shall not commit adultery, but I say unto unto you......
In this instances, Jesus was adding and make the Laws of God more stricter
Only God can do that, any human being that tries adding or subtract from God's Word will incur the wrath of God.
