Amesema Rais Kikwete katika salamu hizo za rambirambi: “Nimepokea kwa huzuni nyingi taarifa za kifo cha Meja Jenerali Herman Cornel Lupogo ambaye nimejulishwa kuwa alipoteza maisha juzi katika Hospitali Kuu ya Jeshi la Lugalo. Kwa hakika, taifa letu limempoteza Mtanzania halisi, ofisa mtiifu wa Jeshi la Ulinzi la Wananchi wa Tanzania ambaye ataendelea kuvikumbusha vizavi vingi vya Watanzania maana halisi ya mapenzi kwa nchi yao.”

Amesisitiza Rais Kikwete: “Tokea alipojiunga na Jeshi la Ulinzi la Wananchi wa Tanzania Julai 23, mwaka 1965 hadi alipostaafu utumishi wake Septemba 11, 1992 baada ya kulitumikia Jeshi kwa miaka 28, miezi minne na siku 13, Meja Jenerali Lupogo alionyesha weledi mkubwa wa kazi ya Jeshi na mapenzi makubwa ya kutumikia nchi yake. Alikuwa Ofisa wa mfano.”

“Nakutumia wewe Mkuu wa Majeshi ya Ulinzi salamu zangu za rambirambi kuomboleza kifo hiki. Najiunga nawe, maofisa wote wakuu, maofisa wadogo na wapiganaji wote kumlilia Meja Jenerali Lupogo. Napenda mjue kuwa niko nanyi katika msiba huu mkubwa,” amesema Rais Kikwete na kuongeza: “Aidha, kupitia kwako, napenda kufikisha salamu za rambirambi za dhati ya moyo wangu kwa wanafamilia wote wa Meja Jenerali Lupogo kwa kuondokewa na mhimili wa familia yao. Niko nao katika majonzi ya msiba huu mkubwa. Niko nao katika kumwomba Mwenyezi Mungu, Mwingi wa Rehema, aiweke pema roho ya Marehemu Meja Jenerali Herman Cornel Lupogo. Amina.”

Simulizi za polisi kuua gaidi Arusha


Mkazi wa Mianzini, jijini Arusha, Yahaya Sendei (31), anayedaiwa kuwa kiongozi wa watuhumiwa ulipuaji mabomu nchini na umwagiaji tindikali watu, ameuawa kwa kupigwa risasi na polisi wakati akidaiwa kujaribu kuruka kwenye gari lao kwa lengo la kutoroka.

Kamanda wa Polisi Mkoa wa Arusha,  Liberatus Sabas (pichani),  jana alisema kuwa mtuhumiwa huyo aliuawa  juzi  saa 5:30 usiku katika barabara ya Arusha- Babati eneo la Kisongo, wilayani Monduli, wakati wakimpeleka kijijini alikozaliwa Chemchem, wilaya ya Kondoa, mkoa  Dodoma, kuwaonyesha askari bomu jingine aliloficha.

Alidai kuwa, mtuhumiwa huyo ambaye inadaiwa wakati wa uhai wake alikuwa mwalimu wa karate na judo ni mwasisi na kinara wa matukio ya ugaidi yaliyotokea jijini Arusha, Zanzibar, Mwanza na Dar es Salaam.

Hata hivyo, hakueleza sababu za kumpiga risasi mtuhumiwa huyo ambaye hakuwa na silaha yoyote na kama alijeruhi askari yeyote zaidi ya kudai kuwa maiti yake imehifadhiwa hospitalini hapo kwa uchunguzi zaidi na kusubiri ndugu kuichukua kwa maziko.
Vile vile Kamanda Sabas hakueleza kama hatua ya kuuawa kwa mtuhumiwa huyo muhimu itawakosesha polisi taarifa muhimu katika mchakato wa upelelezi wao.

Kamanda huyo polisi alisema wanaendelea kuwasaka watuhumiwa wengine wanaojihusisha na kikundi hicho ambacho mtuhumiwa huyo alikiri kuendesha mafunzo ya karate na judo kwenye baadhi ya misikiti jijini Arusha.

Hata hivyo, alisema vikundi hivyo vimesambaratishwa na polisi.
 Alitoa wito kwa wananchi kutoa taarifa polisi ili kuendelea kudumisha amani jijini Arusha na maeneo mengine ya nchini.

“Hawa watu hawakuwa wanafadhiliwa nje ya nchi  ila walikuwa wanajifadhili wenyewe na kwa faida zao wenyewe” alisema Kamanda Sabas.

Miaka 5 jela kwa Oscar Pistorius


Mwanariadha wa Afrika Kusini Oscar Pistorius amehukumiwa jela miaka 5 baada ya kupatikana na hatia ya kumuua mpenziwe Reeva Steenkamp.

Hii ni baada ya mwanariadha huyo mlemavu kupatikana na hatia ya mauaji bila ya kukusudia.

Jaji aliyetoa hukumu hiyo,Thokozile Masipa,alianza kutoa kauli yake ya mwisho kabla ya kutoa hukumu saa mbili na nusu asubuhi na akasema ni changamoto kubwa kwake kupata adhabu ambayo itaridhisha pande zote kwenye kesi hiyo.

Upande wa mashitaka ulitaka mwanariadha huyo kupewa kifungo cha miaka 10 gerezani baada ya kupatikana na makosa ya kuua bila kukusudia.

Pistorius alisema kuwa alifyatua risasi baada ya kudhani kuwa jambazi alikuwa amevamia nyumba yake.

Upande wa mashitaka ulisisitiza Pistorius afungwe jela wakati wakili wa Pistorius wakimtaka jaji ampe kifungo cha nyumbani cha miaka mitatu na pia apewe usaidizi na ushauri wa kubadili tabia yake.

Jaji alisema kuwa Pistorius asingepewa adhabu ya kifungo cha nyumbani kwani hukumu kama hiyo ingekuwa hatua mbaya na mfano mbaya kwa wahalifu.

The danger of common childhood illnesses: Tonsillitis and ear infections 'can cause hearing loss in later life'

  • Famous Newcastle-based study monitored babies from 1947 to present day
  • Participants now in their 60s had hearing tested revealing clear connection
  • Tonsillitis, ear infections and bronchitis in early life all linked to hearing loss

The Newcastle Thousand Families Study claims common childhood illnesses such as tonsillitis and ear infections can cause hearing loss later in life

Common childhood illnesses such as tonsillitis and ear infections can cause hearing loss later in life, according to results from a famous study.

The Newcastle Thousand Families Study monitored 1,142 Newcastle-born babies from 1947 to the present day, measuring their health, growth and development.

A quarter of the participants, who are now in their 60s, have had their hearing tested and the results show those who had infections as children were more likely to have hearing loss.

Dr Mark Pearce, who led the study at the Institute of Health and Society at Newcastle University, said: 'Our findings show that those who suffered from infections as a child were more likely to have a hearing loss in their 60s. 

'Reducing childhood infection rates may help prevent hearing loss later in life.

'This study shows the importance of the Newcastle birth cohorts, with the study initially focusing on childhood infections. 

'The study is nearly 70 years old and continues to make a major contribution to understanding health conditions, which is only possible through the continued contribution of cohort members.'

Tonsillitis, ear infections and multiple episodes of bronchitis occurring in the first year of life were linked to the condition.

Dr Ralph Holme, Head of Biomedical Research at Action on Hearing Loss, said: 'Hearing loss affects as many as one in six people across the UK and is often seen as just another sign of getting old.

'However, the study shows that this is not necessarily the case; illnesses in childhood could have long-lasting consequences for hearing in later life.

'Hearing loss can have a big impact on a person's life, isolating them from family and friends, and has been linked to other health conditions like depression and dementia. 

'These findings remind us that it's never too early to think about protecting your hearing.'

Planning for the study began in the 1930s when Newcastle had a high infant mortality rate compared with the rest of the UK.

The start of the study was delayed by the Second World War, but got under way in May 1947 when recruitment began for a one-year study of health in infancy.

Mdee amshukia Chenge


Baraza la Wanawake la Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo  (Bawacha), limemshukia aliyekuwa Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Uandishi ya Bunge Maalum la Katiba (BMK), Andrew Chenge, kwamba hakuwa na sifa za kusimamia uandishi wa Katiba iliyopendekezwa na Bunge hilo.

Kauli hiyo ilitolewa na Mwenyekiti wa Bawacha, Halima Mdee, ambaye pia ni Mbunge wa Kawe ambapo alisema Chenge na wenzake, wamechakachua maoni ya wananchi na kupenyeza maoni yao ili kulinda maslahi yao.

Mdee aliyasema hayo juzi jioni wakati akihutubia mkutano mkubwa wa hadhara kwenye uwanja wa Furahisha ikiwa ni sehemu ya ziara ya Bawacha katika mikoa ya Kanda ya Ziwa Magharibi ya kuwaelimisha wananchi kuhusu mchakato wa Katiba mpya na kuwashawishi waikatae Katiba iliyopendekezwa na BMK kwa kuipigia kura ya hapana kwa kuwa imeacha maoni ya wananchi.

Katika mkutano huo ambao wakazi wengi wa Jiji la Mwanza walijitokeza, Mdee alisema lilikuwa ni kosa kubwa kumpa Chenge jukumu kuandika Katiba kwa kuwa rekodi yake ya utumishi wa umma inaonyesha kwamba anakabiliwa na tuhuma za kukosa uadilifu, hivyo asingeweza kukubali maoni ya wananchi ya kuwadhibiti viongozi wanaokwenda kinyume cha maadili.

Mdee alisema kuwa Chenge alichukua jukumu la kuongoza Kamati ya Uandishi ili kuzima maoni yaliyotolewa na wananchi kupitia Rasimu ya Tume ya Mabadiliko ya Katiba chini ya Uenyekiti wa Jaji Joseph Warioba, ambayo pamoja na mambo mengine, ilipendekeza kuwabana vigogo kufungua akaunti nje ya nchi.

“Lilikuwa kosa kubwa sana kumpa jukumu hilo, kama mzee wa vijisenti isingekuwa rahisi kuacha kama yalivyo maoni yaliyokuwa yamependekezwa na wananchi kwa kuwa anajua yangewabana katika kufanikisha mambo yao,” alisema Mdee.

“Chenge  na wenzake wamechakachua maoni ya wananchi na kupenyeza ya kwao pamoja na kumpa Rais madaraka makubwa ili kufanikisha mambo yao, waliogopa kwamba wangeacha maoni ya wananchi ya kupunguza madaraka ya Rais ya kuteua viongozi mambo yao yasingefanikiwa,” alisema Mdee.

Aliongeza kuwa Chenge hawezi kutenganishwa na mikataba mibovu ambayo Tanzania imeingia na kuisababishia athari kubwa kwa kuwa alihusika kuisaini akiwa Mwanasheria Mkuu wa Serikali na kwamba alipoulizwa kuhusiana na fedha kiasi cha Dola za Marekani milioni moja zilizokutwa ughaibuni zilizotokana na mkataba wa ununuzi wa rada ya kijeshi kutoka Uingereza katika akaunti yake, alisema kuwa ni vijisenti.

“Watanzania hawatakubali kuona Katiba yao inachakachuliwa,” alisema huku kundi kubwa la wananchi waliokuwa katika mkutano huo wakinyoosha mikono ya kupinga Katiba iliyopendekezwa na Bunge Maalum la Katiba.

Aliongeza: “Hawa wanataka kuendesha nchi kihunihuni kama wanavyotaka wao, na sisi hatutakubali, tutaenda nao hivyo hivyo kihunihuni.”
Kadhalika, alisema wamempatia madaraka makubwa Rais ya kuteua viongozi ili kulinda maslahi yao.

Rasimu ya Jaji Warioba ilipendekeza Rais apunguziwe madaraka ya kuteua viongozi kwa kupendekezwa kuwa baadhi ya taasisi zitumike kupendekeza majina ya viongozi kabla ya kuteuliwa pamoja na Bunge kupewa madaraka ya kuthibitisha uteuzi wa viongozi waandamizi wa serikali.

Hata hivyo, BMK lilipindua mapendekezo hayo na kupendekeza kwamba viongozi ambao uteuzi wao utapaswa kuendelea kuthibitishwa na Bunge ni Waziri Mkuu na Makamu wa Rais aliyechaguliwa na Rais (Running Mate) pale ambapo atapoteza sifa ya kuendelea na wadhifa wake na kuteuliwa mwingine.

Viongozi ambao Tume ya Warioba ilipendekeza uteuzi wake uthibitishwe na Bunge ni mawaziri na manaibu mawaziri, katibu mkuu kiongozi, mwanasheria mkuu wa serikali, jaji mkuu na naibu wake, mtendaji mkuu wa mahakama, katibu wa tume ya utumishi wa umma, mwenyekiti wa tume huru ya uchaguzi na makamu wake, msajili wa vyama vya siasa, mdhibiti na mkaguzi mkuu wa hesabu za serikali na mwenyekiti wa tume ya haki za binadamu na makamu wake.

Chenge alipotafutwa kwa simu jana hakupatikana baada ya simu yake kuita bila majibu.

Katibu Mkuu wa Bawacha, Grace Tendega, alisema wako tayari kuzunguka nchi nzima kuwaelimisha wananchi kuhakikisha hawaipitishi Katiba hiyo.

Alisema Bawacha watahakikisha wanapambana kukomesha uchakachuaji wa maoni ya wananchi kwa kushirikisha nguvu kubwa ya Watanzania milioni 40 wanaowaunga mkono.

“Haijalishi kwamba wabunge wetu katika Bunge la Katiba walikuwa wachache na CCM wakatumia nafasi hiyo kuchakachua maoni ya wananchi, nataka niwaambie kwamba sisi hatujali hiyo kwa kuwa tunao Watanzania wengi wanaotuunga mkono ambao hawajafurahishwa na uchakachuaji huo, tutakaoungana nao kuhakikisha katiba hiyo haipiti,” alisema Tendega.

Ziara hiyo ya viongozi wa Bawacha ililitetemesha Jiji la Mwanza baada ya wakazi wa Jiji hilo juzi jioni kulazimika kusimamisha shughuli zao kwa zaidi ya saa moja kupisha msafara mkubwa uliosindikiza viongozi hao waliokuwa wakielekea katika ofisi za Kanda za Chadema baada ya mkutano huo huku wakiimba nyimbo mbalimbali na kusababisha daladala na magari yaliyokuwa yakitumia barabara ya kuelekea Uwanja wa Ndege kusimama kwa muda.

Immigrant caught trying to sneak across the border in a WASHING MACHINE

  • A man was discovered in the large appliance inside a U-Haul in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas on Friday
  • Along with the washing machine, a cardboard box held four other undocumented immigrants
  • The U-Haul was heading north when U.S. border patrols uncovered the ruse
Creative: A man was found hidden away Friday inside a washing machine after he illegally crossed the Mexican border into the U.S.

Fellow travelers: The man was in the back of a U-Haul truck traveling north alongside four other immigrants who were inside a cardboard box

A man was found hidden away Friday inside a washing machine after he illegally crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. 

Along with four others, who were stowed inside a cardboard box, the man was detained by U.S. border patrol in Falfurrias, Texas.

The group was traveling in the back of a U-Haul. Also detained were the man behind the wheel and his female passenger.

According to KGBT, the immigrants were offered medical attention, which they declined.

Homeland security is investigating.

Meanwhile, high-ranking U.S. Senate Democrats last week called on the Obama administration to reverse its new policy of detaining Central American immigrant families, warning it could be damaging to the young children being housed in the facilities.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy of Vermont and eight other Democrats wrote Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Thursday to complain about the detentions.

'Mothers and their children who have fled violence in their home countries should not be treated like criminals,' wrote the senators, who also included Democratic leadership members Dick Durbin of Illinois, Charles Schumer of New York and Patty Murray of Washington state.

The detention policy, which was initiated this past summer as tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied children rushed to the U.S. border, is part of a broader White House strategy of deterring another influx next year.

Many of the migrants are fleeing El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, where gang violence, drugs and human trafficking are rampant.

In 2009, the United States stopped housing newly arrived immigrant families in a troubled Texas detention facility. Instead, the Obama administration made less restrictive measures, such as ankle bracelets, telephone interviews and other monitoring programs the centerpiece of its policy for keeping tabs on migrants awaiting court determinations on their status.

But that changed a few months ago, as President Barack Obama was under intense pressure from Republicans in Congress to stop the record numbers of children and families seeking refuge in the United States and arriving without visas.

He responded by directing the opening of family detention centers, expediting immigration court cases, refusing bond for many of the migrants and working with Mexico to secure borders.

By year's end, the federal government will have the capacity to detain about 4,000 mothers and children at any one time in centers located in New Mexico, Texas and Pennsylvania.

Kuna ukweli wowote katika hili? AJIRA NA UTENDAJI KAZI WA DR. CHACHA BHOKE MURUNGU WA TPDC UTATA MTUPU


Sisi ni wafanyakazi wazalendo wa TPDC. Tunaamini kuwa TPDC ni Shirika ambalo endapo litaongozwa vizuri linaweza kuwa mkombozi wa wanyonge maana rasilimali ya gesi iliyopatikana nchini inaifanya nchi yetu kuwa na kila sababu ya kutoka katika wimbi la umasikini uliokithiri. Hata hivyo, baadhi ya mambo yanayotokea katika uendeshaji wa Shirika la TPDC yanatutia mashaka na kuhatarisha njozi ya kuwa na Tanzania bora.  Leo, tunajikita katika kuwaeleza watanzania uozo na uovu unaofanywa na Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa Huduma za Sheria ndugu Chacha Bhoke Murungu.

Dr. Chacha Bhoke Murungu aliajiriwa na TPDC mnamo March 2014.  Lakini mazingira ya kuajiriwa kwake yanaharufu ya rushwa na ukabila. Chacha aliajiriwa kama Principal Legal Officer II bila kuwa na kigezo cho chote cha kuajiriwa. Sifa kubwa kwa nafasi aliyoajiriwa ilitakiwa kuwa na uzoefu katika tasnia ya mafuta na gesi asilia. Pia mwombaji alitakiwa kuwa na cheti cha ICSA (Institute of Chartered Secretary and Administrator). Vigezo hivi vyote Chacha hakuwa navyo! Kabla ya kuajiriwa TPDC Chacha alikuwa anafundisha UDOM. Katika shahada yake ya uzamili na uzamivu alizopata katika Chuo Kikuu cha Pretoria alisoma masuala ya sheria za haki za binadamu na siyo katika sheria ambazo ni muafaka katika sekta ya mafuta kama sheria za kodi, mazingira, sheria za biashara na bima. 

Chacha hana hata cheti kimoja cha mafunzo katika tasnia ya mafuta na gesi asilia! Mnamo  April 2014, Chacha alipewa nafasi ya kukaimu Ukurugenzi wa  Kitengo cha Huduma za Kisheria. Tetesi zinaonyesha kuwa nafasi hii ya kukaimu pamoja na kuwa alikuwa hana sifa kabisa na alikuwa na mwezi mmoja tu kwenye Shirika aliipata kutokana na kukingiwa kifua na baadhi ya wajumbe wa Bodi ambao ni wenyeviti wa baadhi ya Kamati za Bodi wanaotoka nyumbani kwake Musoma. Hali kadhalika, kuna tetesi kuwa baadhi ya vigogo wa wizara ya nishati ambao ni wa kabila lake au wanatoka mkoa mmoja wa Mara ndio walimpigia chapuo apewe nafasi hiyo.

Lakini tangu apewe nafasi ya kukaimu ukuregenzi wa kitengo cha huduma za sheria, Chacha ameyumbisha sana idara ya Sheria na Shirika. Kwanza anadharau sana wafanyakazi wenzake. Anaona kama wote hawafai na ye ye ndio anafaa. Kwa mfano amekuwa akisikika mara nyingi akisema wajumbe wenzake kwenye menejimenti hawana uwezo(incompetent). Amekuwa na kauli za matusi ya wazi kwa maafisa wenzake. Amekuwa akitumia madaraka yake kukomesha watu walioko chini yake. Kwa mfano watu wenye uzoefu na kazi za Shirika amewabagua kabisa kinyume na Sheria na anafanya kila njia kuwakatisha tamaa kwa kutowashirikisha kwenye kazi na vikao. Pia, amekuwa akieneza uzushi ili kufarakanisha wafanyakazi. Amekuwa akitoa fursa za safari za kikazi kwa upendeleo wa wazi ikiwa ni pamoja na kutoa fursa kwa wanawake ili kujipatia rushwa ya ngono!

Tangu aajiriwe na TPDC, Chacha ameshalipoteza Shirika kwenye mambo mengi na kulisababishia hasara kubwa!. Kwa mfano, alishauri vibaya Shirika liwafukuze wafanyakazi wawili Flora Salakana Marealle na Braison Kunyalanyala ambao walilitumikia Shirika kwa muda mrefu na kwa uaminifu mkubwa.  Sasa hivi wafanyakazi hawa wamepeleka mgogoro CMA na kuna kila dalili na sababu kuwa watashinda na hivyo Shirika litalazimika kulipa mamilioni ya pesa kama siyo mabilioni.

Chacha hana welewa kabisa katika sheria za mafuta na gesi asilia-Sheria ya Utafutaji na Uzalishaji wa Petroli ya 1980 (Sura 328), Sheria ya Petroli ya 2008 na Mikataba ya Uzalishaji na Ugawanaji (PSAs). Matokeo yake ni kuwa anashauri vibaya Shirika. Kwa mfamo ameshauri vibaya sana TPDC kuhusiana na mpango wa kampuni ya BG ya kujiondoa katika Kitalu na 3. Hatimaye TPDC ikaishauri vibaya Serikali. Hivyo, tangu Julai 2014 mpaka leo kumekuwa na malumbano yasiyona na tija na yasiyoisha kati ya TPDC na BG!. Chacha anakiburi na hataki kukubali ukweli kuwa hanauzoefu na elimu kwenye tasnia ya mafuta na gesi. Hata hivyo watu wenye uzoefu wa muda mrefu na waliosomeshwa kwenye tasnia ya mafuta na gesi anawapiga vita na hataki kuwashirikisha kwa sababu anaogopa ‘challenge’. 
Pia, Chacha amekuwa akivunja kanuni za Shirika. Kanuni zinasema ofisi inatakiwa kukaimishwa kwa afisa mkuu anayekuwepo ofisini (most senior officer) lakini kwa jeuri yake amekuwa akiamua kukaimisha ofisi mtu ye yote bila kujali cheo hasa akizingatia masilahi yake binafsi. Pia hama uzoefu wa kuongoza idara na kuwa kwenye menejimenti. Amekuwa akiendesha ofisi bila kuzingatia ngazi za kiutendaji. Yeye kama kaimu mkurugenzi anatakiwa kuwasimamia maafisa waandamizi, na maafisa waandamizi wanatakiwa kuwasimamia maafisa wadogo. Lakini matokeo yake yeye anataka kusimamia peke yake maafisa wote kiny

Jesus is God!


The Bible says in 2nd Timothy 2:15: “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”. This verse instructs us to personally study the Bible diligently in order to understand its contents. If we depend upon other’s interpretations of the Bible rather than studying it for ourselves we may be led astray or develop the wrong ideas. When we discover a truth it can be found all throughout the Bible and we will not have to search and force scriptures to say something that fits our ideas or man's interpretation.

This article is about the divinity or deity of Jesus Christ. Although Jesus didn't openly say “I am God” the fact of his divinity or deity in scripture is crystal clear. The fact that Jesus accepted worship and did not correct or rebuke the worshippers alone speaks volumes: (Matthew 2:11; 14:33; 28:9, 17,Luke 24:52;John 9:38). He also said that “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30) this statement enraged the Jews because they instantly realized that he was claiming to be God so they tried to stone him. The Jews went on to say in verse 33 “You, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33). Jesus was clearly declaring the fact that he and the father are of the same nature and essence. Another clear example is in John 8:58: here we read : “Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth … before Abraham was born, I am!” God is called “I AM”. (When Moses had to face the people God said to tell the people that “I AM” sent you). The Jews that heard these words considered this blasphemy and according to the Mosaic Law they attempted to stone him (Leviticus 24:16).

Jesus also revealed his glory on the mount of transfiguration in the book of Matthew. It overwhelmed the disciples so much that they fell facedown to the ground but Jesus touched them and told them not to be afraid Matthew 17-After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus (Matthew 17). And on the road to Damascus it was the voice of Jesus who spoke from the sky and said to Paul why are you so cruel to me? (Acts 9:4)

After Jesus’ death Thomas doubted that Jesus was the Messiah. Jesus had appeared to the other disciples and they told Thomas all about it to no avail because Thomas continued to doubt. However a week later Jesus appeared to Thomas and Thomas called him God. Let’s read John 20:19-28: On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” We must realize that Jesus did not correct this statement!

You see the deity of Jesus can be found all throughout scripture: In John 1:14: we read: The Word was made flesh, (took on human form), and dwelt among us. You see Mary was a virgin and became pregnant through the Holy Spirit. The father was not of this earth!

Jesus came to earth in the form of a man in order to save humanity. In the book of Galatians Chapter 4 it says “when the fullness of time had come, (prophecy) God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law. You see God had to take on human flesh and be born under the law to redeem mankind from sin. Yes Jesus stripped himself of all divine privileges and took on the form of a humble servant. Philippians 2:1-7 says: If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. Jesus told Nicodemus that he came down from heaven in John 3:12-13 we read: If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?"No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven. In the book of Hebrews we actually witness a conversation between the Godhead. In Hebrews 1:8 it says “Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.’” Yes the Father refers to Jesus as “O God,”clearly expressing his deity as God. Jesus also declared his eternal nature in John 17 “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. And scripture clearly teaches that there is only one god (there is no other; there is no God but Me (Isaiah 45:5). We have to realize that God himself is plural in Majesty. In the book of Genesis we read “let us create man in our image” (Genesis 1:26). You see in Jesus all the Godhead dwelled (For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9).

Here is another clear scripture declaring Jesus’ divinity as the everlasting father (Isaiah 9:6) 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.

In the thirteenth chapter of Hebrews we also read of Jesus’ eternality: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. The book of Hebrews quite clearly teaches us about Jesus’ divinity it says that Jesus is the “BUILDER OF ALL THINGS” - Hebrews 3:3: For Jesus is considered worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more than the house. For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. In the Book of Colossians we read that Jesus created all things “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. (Colossians 1:16). And in the book of Revelation we read that Jesus will be coming back as the Ancient of Days! He will have snow white hair and flaming eyes ready to judge the nations, this clearly is God! Titus 2:13 encourages us to wait for the coming of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ (see also 2 Peter 1:1).

Yes Jesus was actually the God-Man. As a man he grew tired, hungered and was tempted without surrendering. As God he calmed the seas, fed the multitudes and healed the sick! The important thing here is to realize that if Jesus wasn't God then his death could not have saved the world. John the Baptist boldly and humbly declared: Behold, The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!”(John 1:29). Praise God he is the lamb that takes away the sins of the world! God bless you all!
