It seems that the Jehovah’s Witnesses or other churches do not understand correctly the relationship between Jesus and us. However, if you understand the Bible a little, it’s not difficult to realize it. Let’s take a look at the words of Jesus:
… I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. (John 6:54)
Jesus said that He came to this earth to give us life. And He allowed us to have life through His own flesh and blood. Then, what should we call the one who gives us life through his flesh and blood? We must call him Father, mustn’t we?
From another verse the Bible, we can also clearly understand the relationship between Jesus and us. The following verse reveals the reason Jesus came to this earth to save sinners who committed sins in heaven and were destined to eternal death.
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil– and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15)
Jesus came to this earth because the children had flesh and blood and were held in slavery by their fear of death. Here, the children refer to “us.” In the above verse, it’s clearly written that we are ‘children of Jesus.’ Looking at the Bible a little will reveal the fact that we were children of Jesus in heaven before we were expelled to this earth due to sins. The prophet Isaiah prophesied about Jesus who would come to save us:
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. (Matthew 9:13)
From these verses, we can know that Jesus came to this earth in the same appearance and position with the children who had flesh and blood in order save the sinners or His children. Then, what did we call Jesus in heaven? It’s obvious that we called Him Father. Jesus was our spiritual Father in essence and came down to this earth in the flesh — the appearance of sinners — to save His children because they were held in slavery by their fear of death due to sins. I hope you will clearly realize the truth of the Trinity and find the right way of salvation.
