God Reveals His Son Jesus
When God sent His Son to the earth, He made His Son’s name very clear, obvious and definite.
God also made His thoughts about His Son very clear, obvious and definite.
He did not hide His Son’s name.
And God the Father did not hide His thoughts about His Son.
Six Specific Revelations of Jesus, God’s Son
The gospels of course reveal that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Lord God Almighty – and infinitely more.
Six specific times, God introduces and reveals His Son Jesus, making His Son’s name and His thoughts about His Son very clear.
The first time God reveals His Son and His Son’s name is when the angel Gabriel visited Mary. Gabriel said to Mary: “”And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus’” (Luke 1:31).
In this visitation, Gabriel revealed that Jesus is the: Son, Son of the Highest, Holy One, and the Son of God (Luke 1:31-35).
The next time God revealed His Son’s name was to Joseph, Mary’s husband, in a dream (Matthew 1:18-21).
Months later, when Jesus was born, an angel of the Lord appeared to shepherds and revealed that Christ was born. A multitude of angels then appeared in the nighttime sky, proclaiming the glorious results of the sending and birth of Jesus (Luke 2:8-14).
Before Jesus’ ministry began, the prophet John the Baptist announced and testified to the public that Jesus is the Lamb of God and the Son of God (John 1:29, 32-33).
God Speaks Audibly about His Son
When Jesus was baptized, God spoke audibly from heaven about His Son. God spoke supernaturally, clearly and obviously. He said:
“‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’” (Matthew 3:17).
When Jesus was transfigured, God spoke audibly about His Son (Matthew 17:1–8, Mark 9:2–8, Luke 9:28–36). While on a mountain with three of His disciples, Jesus became radiant in glory. A bright cloud overshadowed them, and God the Father spoke audibly:
“’This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased and delighted! Hear Him! Listen to Him!’” (Matthew 17:6, NKJV & Amplified)
