IS JESUS CHRIST GOD: The below scripture is another scripture misinterpreted to suppose that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is God himself.
Colossians 2:9-10 (KJV)
For in him [Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
The word ‘Godhead’ in the above scripture often perplexes some and is also often taught to refer to God, Jesus, and the Holy spirit as three persons in one God. However, it isn’t so from scriptures. The word translated as ‘Godhead’ by the KJV and some other versions is the Greek word ‘theotēs,’ which means ‘Deity.’ The NIV translates it this way.
Colossians 2:9 (NIV)
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form
The word refers to God alone dwelling in Christ. Even context asserts so.
For God in full measure was pleased to be in him [Christ];
So, Paul was teaching the Colossians that God was in Christ. That is, Jesus Christ had God in full measure. So does every believer.
2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And, from scriptures, God dwells in humans by his spirit (his nature, power, and active force).
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Colossians 2:9 is simply saying that Jesus was a human with the Spirit of God dwelling in him in full measure. This was why he could do all he did.
God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and because God was with him, he went around doing good and healing everyone who was oppressed by the devil.
Jesus Christ had God’s Spirit in full measure. John, while teaching his disciples, made this plain.
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
God gave his Spirit to Jesus without limit. That’s clearly the same teaching communicated by Paul in his writing to the Colossians.
Paul also taught that the believer in Christ has God’s fullness [Spirit without measure] in him.
and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
In Acts too, where it first happened.
And they were all FILLED with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Even the verse after Colossians 2:9 reveals the same:
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity dwells in bodily form.
AND YOU HAVE BEEN MADE COMPLETE IN CHRIST, who is the head over every ruler and authority.
That is, since God dwells in Christ (by his Spirit) without measure and you are in Christ, you are complete too. God is in you too (by his Spirit) without limit.
If the above scripture implies that Jesus is God, it therefore means everyone in Christ (every believer) is God too. Nothing would be more ridiculous and ludicrous.

THE NEVER-BEFORE-TOLD STORY OF LECRAE’S LOSS OF FAITH AFTER THE EXPERIENCES OF HIS PAST THREATENED TO RUIN HIS CAREER AND LIFE.
Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds–sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression–that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves, and others.
With vulnerable honesty and transformational yet simple steps you can apply today, Lecrae shares the personal practices he uses in his daily life for mental, emotional, and spiritual health. With powerful prose, he gives an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that sadly hurt us so often–culture, politics, family, church, personal failure–and reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us.
I Am Restored is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, and that we all desperately long for, because no matter what you’ve experienced, God is near, He hears, and He’s not done with you yet.
Fast rising Gospel music minister Yadah has topped the June edition of the Official Nigerian Gospel Music Top 10 Chart, compiled by The International Association of Christian Media Practitioners [IACMP], with her wavemaking recent single titled “Onye Inaputara.”
With +18K views on the music video released on the 12th of June and an overwhelming number of votes from 54 Nigerian Gospel music blogs all across the nation, add to the nods from IACMP Top 10 Chart Panelists, the Abuja based Gospel artiste has whisked the spot off Dunsin Oyekan’s “At All Cost,” which dropped 6 steps to the Number 7 spot, for the month of June.
“Obinasom,” by Mercy Chinwo, Ada Ehi’s “Fix My Eyes On You” featuring Sinach and GUC’s “All That Matters,” all made their way back to the chart in order of mention due to recent demands and the vacuole created by lack of stronger contenders for the month. “‘All That Matters” by GUC pushed “On God” by Eben a step down from the number 4 spot which the single held last month.
The IACMP Official Nigerian Gospel Music Top 10 Chart uses popular votes from about 54 Gospel music blogs & online radio stations all over Nigeria, online music statistics such as charts from Gospel music blogs all over Nigeria. Also views, downloads, streams, external Gospel music charts and the decision of 2 panels (a 4-man and a 6-man panel) as criteria to determine the song that makes the monthly chart. The chart is the most credible Gospel music chart in Nigeria.
Let Us Assume that: 1) The cause of this pandemic is the 5-G technology.
2) The only answer to the pandemic is a vaccine to be administered with a chip.
3) The chip will be the fulfilment of the biblical prophecy of 666, the mark of the beast.
4) Anyone whether he is a believer or not, who takes the vaccine (with the chip) which is mark of the beast will be automatically lost forever!
5) Any one who refuses to take the vaccine will die from the virus or from hunger but he will be saved whether he is a believer or not!
Such a person will not even be allowed to buy or sell because he doesn’t have the mark of the beast but he will be saved forever! .
So, the only way out of the pandemic is to take the vaccine. The vaccine is the only way to survive now!
What is the Implication of all these?
If the above 5 points are correct it means that:
Salvation now is purely based on receiving or refusing the mark (the vaccine).
Even if one is a believer but takes the mark he will be lost. So, salvation now is purely based on what we do with the mark! If you take the vaccine you shall be lost. If you reject the vaccine you shall be saved!
Salvation by faith in Christ Jesus is no longer valid. Christ died in vain. Jesus is no longer the message.
The vaccine is now the message!
Do you understand now?
