Christ Jesus is El Shaddai
1-5:2 Christ Jesus, the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD God ( John 8:58; Exodus 3:1-18; 6:1-8 ) is the God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) who appeared, spoke and called on to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses ( Exodus 6:1-8; 3:1-18; Genesis 17:1; 28:3; 35:11; 43:14; 48:3; 49:25 ) and Job ( Job Chapters 38, 39, 40, 41, 42 ). Since Jesus- the Christ, is the Lord God Almighty who created- made- built all things ( Revelation 4:8-11; Colossians 1:16; John 1:3, 10; Hebrews 3:1-6 ) and since it is He who is the Savior- Salvation- Redeemer of the world ( John 4:42; I John 4:14; Colossians 1:15-21; Titus 2:13-14 ), therefore, He rightfully owns ( Hebrews 3:1-6 ), reigns over ( Revelation 19:1-8 ) and indwells ( II Corinthians 6:15-18 ) all of His holy people. Christ Jesus definitely,
explicitly and publicly claims that He is the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING ABSOLUTE LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios [ Matthew 22:41-45; Psalm 110:1; 140:6-7 ] ) and the Almighty who IS, who WAS and who IS TO COME ( Revelation 1:8; 4:8-11; 11:15-18; 15:3-4; 16:4-7, 14-15; 18:4-8; 19:1-8, 11-16; 21:22 ). The LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( Elohim ) the Son, Christ Jesus ALONE is the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING, SELF- IDENTIFYING and SELF- CLAIMING God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) because of the following Characteristics, Qualities and Attributes of this God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ): ( A ) He directly reveals to John and asserts that “I am the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End”… “the First and the Last” ( Revelation 1:8, 17-18; 21:6; 22:13 ); so the Almighty is SINGULAR, PERSONAL and SELF- REVEALING, SELF- IDENTIFYING and SELF- CLAIMING as Almighty, ALPHA, OMEGA, BEGINNING, END, FIRST and LAST; ( B ) This Almighty directly reveals to John and asserts, identifies and claims Himself as the ONE “who IS, who was and who is to come” ( Revelation 1:8, 4 ); since the Person referred to as the one “who is to come” is the God- Man, Christ Jesus, and not God the Father neither is it God the Holy Spirit, therefore, the Almighty of Revelation 1:8; 4:8 is definitely the Lord Jesus Christ; ( C ) The Almighty who was and who is and who is to come is the one who created and willed the existence of all things ( Revelation 4:8-11 ); since God the Son is the one who created ( Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:8-12 ), made ( John 1:3 ) and upholds- sustains ( Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:2-3; Acts 17:25 ) all things, therefore, Christ Jesus is the Almighty who was and who is and who is to come; ( D ) the Almighty who is to come is also the one who will judge and rule over all of creation ( Revelation 11:16-18; 15:3-4; 16:4-7; 19:6, 15; 22:12-13 ); so this judge and ruler of everyone and all of all creations is Christ Jesus Himself since God the Father judges no one because He has given all the judgments to the Son ( John 5:22-23; Hebrews 1:8-12 ); ( E ) In Revelation 21:22, the temple IS the Lord God who is the Almighty AND the Lamb; since the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is the Lamb, therefore, He is the Lord God who is the Almighty. Those who declare that God the Father or God the Holy Spirit is the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) are makers, lovers and disseminators of lies/falsehoods/deceptions and deserving the lake of fire ( Revelation 21:8, 27; 22:15 ).
Christ Jesus is the Lord God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) who is already the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING, CONSCIOUSLY SELF- DETERMINING ABSOLUTE LIFE, viz. “I AM” ( John 8:58 ), even before Abraham’s existence. Christ Jesus, the ONE “who makes alive the dead and calls the things that be not as though they were”, is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob ( Romans 4:17 ). Christ Jesus is the Lord whom Abraham unconditionally or absolutely believed because as the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) Christ Jesus is the infinitely self- sufficient, graciously, truthfully and righteously all- sustaining and justly all- satisfying PERSON. For Christ Jesus, being the ALL in all ( Colossians 3:11 ), is the one who fills all in all ( Ephesians 1:21-23 ); and He not only gives life, breath and all things to all ( Acts 17:25 ) but He also gives due course to everyone so that everyone can realize his/her/its respective self- chosen destiny IN Him ( John 3:16-21,36; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:1-8 ). Since the Word of God enjoins everyone to walk in Abraham’s pre- circumcision faith ( Romans 4:12; Genesis 15:6 ) and since that faith of Abraham is just unconditionally or absolutely believing the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ), therefore, everyone walking in and following through the faith of Abraham must unconditionally or absolutely believe the Lord Jesus Christ by addressing all of their submissions, commitments, subjections, conformities, devotions, prayers, sacrifices and services directly, exclusively and permanently to Him.
