Can you Call Jesus the Father? is Jesus the Father or just the Son?
If your answer is, “He is the Son of God,” that is correct because it’s Biblical. But did you also know that Jesus is The Everlasting Father?
It is a must to call him the Son and at the same time it is must to believe and call him the Everlasting Father. Otherwise, you will contradict with the prophet Isaiah who prophesied:-
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” ( Isa. 9:6).
Pay attention please and explore this scripture (since the prophecy of Isaiah is already fulfilled, you might realize that this is about the Lord Jesus Christ.)
Therefore the child that was born is Jesus Christ.
The Son that was given unto us is Jesus Christ.
And the governor (of the universe) is Jesus Christ (though he was found in a womb of a Virgin, then laid in a manger and finally in the grave – he is the governor, the creator all things (John 1:3), the resurrection and the life (John 11). According to the prophecy, It is expected of us to call his name Wonderful and the Counsellor. You might agree on this, but many people face a challenge on the rest of the text in Isa. 9:6.
We have to call Him also The mighty God. There is only one true Mighty God of the Bible. Let us read Deut. 10:17 Which says, “For the Lord your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:” (See Titus 2:13 the great God is Jesus; See 1 Timothy 6:12-14 the Lord of lords is Jesus Christ) We cannot have two great Gods or two Lord of lords – no way!)
Isa. 10:21 “The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.” and the Prophet Jeremiah also says, “Thou shewest loving kindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name,” (Jer. 32:18) The Mighty God is his name. Isaiah says “His name shall be called the Mighty God.”
When we are commanded to call Jesus Christ the Mighty God, we are expected to believe that he is the Lord of hosts and the only Great God of Israel. Moreover, he is the Almighty God (See Rev. 1:18).
Finally, His is The everlasting Father. This may challenge your theology.That’s not a problem if your theology is not purely biblical, it is possible to correct or totally reject it. But if you reject the Biblical Theology, you are then rejection yourself, rejection your life. Don’t you agree?
We are told to call his name the Everlasting Father and we have to know that there is only one Father (Matthew 6:9; 23:10)
The Prince of Peace is is Jesus Christ. Not only the Prince but also the King (Zech. 9:9); even King of kings; “That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;” (1 Tim. 6:14,15).
“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Rev. 17:14).
“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Rev. 19:16)
Someone may ask saying, when Isaiah said “unto us a son is given” there must be a giver. Who is that giver?
Good question! In the New Testament read John 3:16 which says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Since Jesus is the Almighty God, and God is one only. He gave himself to us.
- “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:16) Jesus is the giver of the living Water (the Holy Spirit the Spirit of God because he is that Almighty God)
- “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:51) Jesus Christ is the giver of his body and his body is the gift, we are the receivers. the Everlasting Father, Jesus, is the giver of the Son. In other words, he gave himself. Please read the following scriptures)
- “Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” (1Tim. 2:6)
- “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” Eph. 5:25
- “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” (Titus 2:13-15) . Speak this with all Authority: Jesus Christ is All in all (Col. 3:11).
So for me Jesus Christ is ALL, and in All. The Alpha and the Omega, The Son and the Everlasting Father.
