'God the Word' become a man and he was Jesus of Nazareth. He lived as a man, but not as God, during the 33 years of his life. After he was crucified, God raised him from the dead. Jesus was anointed as God again as before. But most Christians worship the man Jesus, instead of worshiping the true Jesus Christ. According to the Bible, they worship another Jesus.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.
Our topic is Man Jesus, God Jesus, and Another Jesus. Let us begin with man Jesus. 'The Word' was God in the beginning. This God was made flesh. Flesh refers to a common man without he being God. The man was, Jesus of Nazareth. Let us see how he became a man. Hebrews 10:5 when he cometh into the world, he saith, ... a body hast thou prepared me: That is, when God the Word came to the world, God the Father and the Holy Ghost have created a body for him. They came upon Virgin Mary and created a body, not a baby, but a body of a baby, in her womb. Then, the soul of 'God the Word,' left the omni-power Spirit body of God, and entered into the body that was in the womb of Mary, and became a baby. So, God became a man, he was Jesus of Nazareth. He lived as a man, but not as God, during the 34 years of his life. If you like to study them in detail, I have studies & videos. You may access them by the links that is in description section.
Now let us study God Jesus. Acts 2:36 says resurrected Jesus, was made Lord and Christ. So, Jesus has become Lord Jesus Christ. When Jesus was born to Mary, he was not the begotten son of God. God declared him as his begotten son after he was raised from death a/c to Psalm 2:7, Acts 13:33, Romans 1:4, Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:5&6, 5:5, & Revelation 1:5. His soul entered back into the omni-power Spirit again and he has become God again, as he was God before. Hebrews 1:8&9 say that begotten son was anointed as God. So, he is God Jesus Christ. More than 40 verses in the bible say Jesus Christ is God. As God, he is with 'God the Father' and 'the Holy Ghost,' in one Spirit body. His person, or soul, is in heaven with the Father, and he is everywhere in the whole world because he is omnipresent in the omni-power Spirit.
Now, let us study about another Jesus. It is little hard to accept, and so please bear with me. We all know that God is God & man is man. God the word had become man Jesus, who was Jesus of Nazareth.
At this point let me ask a question. Who is God? A person, takes care of us, heals us, gives us good health, loves us, is good to us, does all kinds of favors to us, etc. Is he God because he does all kinds of help to us? If we worship a man as god for these reasons, even Hindus and other religious people worship their gods for the same reasons. Then, our god will be as heathen gods. We may say that our God died for us and so he is superior to other gods. But, God cannot die and so it will make him no god or an inferior god. No! These reasons will make nobody God. We must worship Jesus Christ for the only reason that he is God, who is eternal and existed from the beginning to the end, the creator, who is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, eternal Spirit, and who will judge the whole world in righteousness. Do you worship this Jesus Christ? If not, you are worshiping another Jesus according to 2 Corinthians 11:2-4. We should not have the mind-set of heathens, to create a god from a man, a legend, a phantom, or an imaginary being to fit our fantasy.
The man Jesus had a mission and God Jesus is here with an entirely different mission. We must know this. Let us see a few examples:
1. The Man Jesus was the Lamb of God according to John 1:29&30. Acts 8:32&33 say He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away… his life is taken from the earth. This is man Jesus. Now, look at God Jesus Christ. Revelation 14:9&10 say if anybody worship the devil, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: The man Jesus gave himself to be killed mercilessly, but God Jesus will pour his indignation in torment with fire and brimstone on them. As man Jesus he was extremely passive, but as God Jesus, he is extremely offensive.
2. The man Jesus was the only person, who was anointed to preach the gospel according to Isaiah 61:1 & Luke 4:18. He preached the gospel according to Matthew 4:23, 9:35, 11:5, Mark 1:14, Luke 7:22, 9:6, 20:1, and the gospel he has preached is in the four gospels of the Bible and in the book of Revelation. He told his disciples to preach his gospel and they preached it. The death and resurrection of Jesus was not the gospel. That is the history of Jesus. The gospel is what Jesus Christ told us to do in order to inherit the kingdom of God. If we obey them, we will inherit his kingdom. Now, look at what God Jesus will do with the gospel. 2 Thessalonians 1:8 says in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: As God, he will take vengeance on those who do not accept God Jesus, but went after another Jesus, they are the one who do not know God, and on those who do not obey his gospel, by burning them into the lake of fire. As man he tells us to obey. As God, if we don't obey the gospel, watch out, he will punish us severely.
3. Matthew 20:28 the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. This is as the man. Philippians 2:9&10, 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; As man, he was a servant, but as God, he will be the King who demands respect on our knees.
4. In Acts 10:42, Peter says Jesus commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge. Romans 14:10 says we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. As man, he was a preacher, but as God, he will be the eternal Judge who shall cast the disobedient into a furnace of fire.
So many points we can show from the scriptures to show that what man Jesus has done was different from what God Jesus will do. Common Christians may not pay attention. But pastors, preachers, theologians and scholars do not like a strict God. They desire a god like the man Jesus, who healed the sick, cleansed lepers, raised the dead, cast out devils and he went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. But, he has finished his work as man Jesus according to John 17:4 & 19:30. But, preachers say that he has finished the work of salvation, so that they could void the mission of God Jesus on salvation, and preach another Jesus. 2 Corinthians 11:4 says if someone preach another Jesus, you could have accepted him. They found another Jesus and most people in all churches accepted him. Instead of teaching them about the resurrected Jesus Christ, who has become God and about his present mission of turning people away from their sins and to make them pure, the scholars of the churches, gave them the portrait of Jesus of Nazareth as God, with the name the Lord Jesus Christ. So, it was very easy for the people to accept it because, the name is Lord Jesus Christ. But the portrait does not exist, and it is not real, except in the minds of Christians. When heathens form gods, demons come upon the object of worship and receive the worship from people as their gods. In this case, Satan shows himself as Lord Jesus Christ and receives worship. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; (this is Satan), so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, (temple is churches) showing himself that he is God. So, Satan shows himself as God Jesus Christ and receives the worship of Christians. Satan is called another Jesus Christ, according to 2 Corinthians 11:4. Verse 14 also says that Satan shows himself as an angel. In 13&15 the servants of Satan present themselves, as pastors, preachers, evangelists, etc. In Matthew 24:24, Jesus said there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Here, Christ means, son of God, according to Matthew 16:16, 26:63, Mark 14:61, John 6:69, 11:27, & 20:31. There shall arise false Christs means, that many preachers will say that they are sons of God, but actually they are servants of Satan. Some show signs and wonders even to deceive the very elect with the power of Satan. They do this in Christian settings. Jesus Christ tells us not to believe them. But, big crowds of church people are going to them. Those who worship another Jesus Christ are more than those who worship the true God Jesus Christ. It is too much, overwhelming deception. In Matthew 13:24-30, Jesus Christ told a parable. God sowed, that is planted seeds, good seed in his field, which is the churches: Satan sowed tares among the wheat in God's church. Jesus Christ says that you and I cannot do anything about it. But God will burn the tares in the lake of fire and gather the wheat for himself on the judgment day. We all participate in our churches. If we are placed in our church by another Jesus, we will burn in the end. But, if we are placed by God, we will be in heaven with him for eternity. How do we know who placed us in our church? Let me give a few practical points for you to know. If you find that another Jesus has placed you in the church, jump out of it. Ask God Jesus to plant you in his church.
We are religious, we call ourselves Christians, we are zealous for our Christianity. We all know John 3:16 and the interpretation given by preachers. How many of us know, what God says in the next verses. John 3:19 this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Who is the light? He is the resurrected God Jesus Christ, who is here to turn his people away from their sins according to Acts 3:26. If you are one, who commit sin, but don't want to be reproved, then God says you are evil. You will hate light and you will not come to light. But you say you love Jesus. That is another Jesus Christ, because God says that you hate the light that is God Jesus Christ. But, if you love the truth, you are of the light, who is God Jesus Christ. God will show that you are wrought in God.
Christian Celebrity leaders are not of God. They have a charisma by which they have attracted you. If that charisma is not holiness and nor living in the same example given by Jesus of Nazareth, he is a deceiver, using his charisma to exploit you for his fame and profit. If you admire them, you are of another Jesus Christ.
Jesus preached what must we do to go to heaven. He healed all the sick whoever came to him. He never preached or advertised healing. But Now, preachers advertise healing, and preach how to manipulate and exploit God. But they do not preach what Jesus Preached. But they do lying wonders of Satan. They are of another Jesus Christ.
Signs and wonders are not proof that the preachers behind it are of God. Another Jesus is the one who advertise signs and wonders. If they advertise them, sure enough, that they are of another Jesus.
The final word of God Jesus Christ in the Bible is this. Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. According to God Jesus Christ, eternal life and inheritance to heaven is by obeying his commandments. Whatever is preached opposite to this verse is a lie and whoever preach opposite to this verse is of another Jesus Christ.
God preaches truth. Any twist from the Bible comes from Satan. False preachers pretend as if many verses from the word of God are void. They say 'be perfect' is void, 'sin no more' is void, etc. No verse is void until and unless, God does it. Example: Sin sacrifice, food laws, feasts and ceremonies, sabbath days, temple worship, circumcision, etc, are taken away or revised by God.
Grace is not a chant that will take us to heaven. 2 Corinthians 12:9 he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. This is what Paul said in response to what Jesus Christ has said. So, Grace is the power of Christ rest upon a person while he is weak. 1 Peter 5:5 for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: That is, you must humble and qualify for grace and wait for his grace. Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. We must come to God in the time of need to receive grace. So, if we humble ourselves, and come to God in times of need, then God will give us the power of Jesus to overcome sins, and this is the grace of God. But another Jesus Christ teaches as if grace is built in us as a magic chant that will take us to heaven automatically. It is lie.
Don't ever forget that God Jesus Christ is with his people to turn them away from their sins, according to Acts 3:26 & Matthew 1:21. If we allow Lord Jesus Christ to turn us away from our sins, he will deliver us from our present sins and he will also forgive our past sins to show his righteousness according to Romans 3:25. Preachers, who will twist these scriptures, and teach otherwise, are the servants of Satan, who is another Jesus. Those who say that our past, present, and future sins are forgiven since Jesus has died on the cross are of Satan and God will burn them in fire and brimstone for eternity to come.
Every doctrine except the doctrine of Jesus Christ and of the apostles are of Satan, who is another Jesus. So, reject all and every doctrines of the churches and of the theologians and study the pure word of God without any kinds of expository notes or study Bibles of any famous preacher. God will give you the true understanding.
Let me stop it by this important point. God Jesus Christ owns this entire universe. He has created it and he is keeping it. Satan, who is another Jesus Christ, a crooked con artist, deceiver, is just a creation. We must understand who is who. Satan, wants us to think that God is also like us. God doesn't have to please us or entice us. He demands reverence, obedience, worship, etc. We must obey, fear, and worship God. If we truly understand his majesty, then we will not be fooled.
I have served as a pastor for twelve years in a church. I love church and preachers. I am not against them. But, their profession requires not to preach the truth. If they do, they will lose their congregation. So, they preach lies in order to satisfy and keep their congregation. 2 Timothy 4:3 the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. Now, this time has fully come. So, all of them teach stories and lies. But, I desire that Christians may know the truth. Billions of Christians are in the world. I cannot reach more than a handful. So, I am irrelevant. However, I wish, a few of you, will understand the truth of God. I hope you do. If so, the goal of my life will be fulfilled.
Thank you for listening.
God Bless You
