(📖📕Bible and Quran ,is Jesus God),,we all must read for our faith upon our Lord,,and for our courage and strength,,,,such a good article,,,

Jesus has Power

Many a times I was asked this question, “Who is Jesus? Is Jesus God or a mere man like me and you?”

Let us analyze it from the Bible and the Quran. What is the quality of God? And what are the qualities of God that makes Jesus God.

Jesus has power to forgive sin

Bible and Quran both say that, only God has the authority to forgive sins. In Isaiah 43:25 God says, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.”

We read from scripture 2 Chronicles 7:14, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

And also in Jeremiah 31:34, “No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Now look to Jesus, when He was in this world He forgave the sins of people as the Bible says: –

When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts,

“Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?

“Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’?

“But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”; He said to the paralytic,

“I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”

(Mark2: 5-11)

The scribes were correct in their conclusion that only God can forgive sins. By claiming this right for Himself, Jesus declared His deity.

Yes, no man in this world has power to forgive your sins but God. If you repent of your sins Jesus will forgive your sins. As we read in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

And also the Bible says in 1 John 1:7, “…and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

If we go into the lives of the prophets, we can see that they asked God to forgive people. By themselves they had no power to forgive the sins of people. But Jesus had power to forgive sins.

Jesus has power over Life and Death

Both the Bible and Quran says that only God has power over life and death. God who created Adam and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life has power to give life and has power to take away life.

And we read in the Bible that Jesus has power over Life and Death.

Jesus said in John 5:21, “For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.”

Also we read in John 10:14-17, “I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

“As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. “No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

And again Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.

“Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

“This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

(John 6:48-51)

Jesus has not only power over life and death but He is life – eternal, life Himself. If we want to live forever, we need to take Jesus in our lives. Without Him we are dead and there is no life in us. No one killed Jesus but He gave His life for us so that we may live forever and forever and that we may never see death…

Jesus has power over Evil Spirit and Sicknesses

The Bible very clearly says that God has power over every sicknesses and demons.

Exodus 15:26, says, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

Psalms 103:3, “Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.”

And we see that Jesus demonstrated the same power of God.

When Jesus saw the sick and suffering people, He was moved with compassion. Jesus healed the sick and cast out demons from the lives of people. We read in Matthew 10:1, “And when He had called unto him his twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”

Yes, Jesus has power over every sickness and over every evil spirit and demons. Bible says that He healed all kinds of diseases and all kinds of sicknesses, Matthew 4:23-24, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.” Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.”
Jesus has power over death and life apostles Paul and peter knew this very well so they faced trials peter says his death will be sudden,,of disease or sword or government or anything but he knows the truth Jesus has authority over death and life so he never feared Amen.
