The true identity of Christ

**
Here is the full truth as to the divinity of Christ!:


Matthew 19:16 "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" KJV


MATTHEW 19:16-22 NKJV


16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, "Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?"

17 So He said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments."

18 He said to Him, "Which ones?" Jesus said, "'You shall not murder,' 'You shall not commit adultery,' 'You shall not steal,' 'You shall not bear false witness,'

19 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "

20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?"

21 Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Here is the full truth as to the divinity of Christ!:

19 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "

20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?"

21 Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Read how this young man came in a could-a would-a way, to a moment of Absolute Truth as to the person of Christ and failed to comprehend the Truth.

On the surface, it appears that this rich young ruler was "right on" in the way he approached Jesus and sought salvation. He ran, knelled down to Jesus, and openly professed Him as a Good Master. What could be wrong with that?


First, he acknowledged Jesus as good but not as God. This is a pivotal point.

Every major religion of the world acknowledges that Jesus lived and will even admit that He definitely was a good man, but they won't recognize Him as God. If Jesus was only a good man, He couldn't save anybody. Jesus didn't just come to show us the way to God. He was the way, the only way unto the Father.

{This is where most people stumble with the true identity of Christ}

No man could come unto the Father, but by Him (Jn. 14:6). Jesus had made this point publicly many times before.

This is the reason that Jesus responded to this young man's question the way He did. Jesus was saying, "God is the only one who is good. You must accept me as God or not at all."

Jesus was either who He claimed to be or He was the biggest fraud that ever lived. He has to be one or the other. He cannot be both.

Second, he asked what he could do to produce salvation.

He trusted in himself and believed he could accomplish whatever good work Jesus might request. This is completely opposed to the plan of salvation that Jesus came to bring.


Jesus obtained salvation for us through His substitution and He offers it to us as a free gift. All we must do is believe and receive.
This rich young ruler wasn't looking for a Savior. He was trying to be his own savior. This is the reason Jesus referred him back to the commandments. He either needed to keep all of the law perfectly or he needed a Savior.

Jesus desired to turn this man from trusting in himself by showing him God's perfect standard, which no one could keep so that then he would trust in a Savior. Do not become your own self-savior; because it is pointless and false.
