Bill Johnson’s confusion on Jesus

The Bible teaches Jesus is the Son of man and the Son of God

 “Jesus is a Father, he is perfect father. He came to a planet of Orphans to reveal the Father as Father (The Revelation of God’s goodness Sid Roth interview)

Here he explains Jesus is the Father, which means he is revealing himself (unitarianism). How does this work with his other statement of Jesus being only a man and that “the Holy Spirit revealed the Father to Jesus.” (p.80 When Heaven Invades Earth).

He has also made it clear that his position is Jesus is a man on earth so both positions cannot be true. And where there are contradictions on the nature of God that are opposite statements you can assured there is more than just these.

Jesus so emptied Himself that He was incapable of doing what was required of Him by the Father – without the Father’s help.” (“The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind” p.50).

Johnsons view is that on earth Jesus was only the Son of man, not deity (the son of God) therefore he has eliminated the incarnation, God becoming flesh.

The Gnostic enemy of the word and Christianity were teaching the heresy that Jesus was not Christ until He was baptized in water and anointed with the Spirit. However we read that “He came by water and blood;” that is, He was already Christ when born, He was baptized and remained so on the Cross, and through His resurrection. The term “Christ,” is more than an experience; it is applied to Jesus only as the Divine God/man.

we must remember that Jesus’ life was a model of what mankind could become if it were in right relationship with the Father.” “The anointing is what linked Jesus, the man, to the divine enabling Him…” (Johnson, Bill “The Anointing and the Antichrist Spirit.” When Heaven Invades Earth. 2003; p 79)


Only if Christ is not God can mankind become like him by being anointed. Again the incarnation is eliminated which means he is preaching a different Jesus than the Bible. You will not hear Johnsons focus on the deity of Christ because that interferes with his "Latter Rain" theme so he gives a wink to his eternal nature by mentioning it and then ignoring it as it f it has no meaning to his life.

The apostle John says “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God.” (1 Jn.4). What John means is that God came in the flesh of the man Jesus. Scripture teaches that Jesus was divine at His Incarnation, he is “Immanuel” – He is God with us, not man with us. (Luke 2:11; I John 1:1-3; Matthew 1:18-23) that only those who confess this are of God. Contrary to Johnson's error, all of Christian confronts his view which has more in common with the cults.

Jesus IS the eternal God in flesh just as the Bible teaches and we who are created can never become what was uncreated, the eternal one. Creatures cannot become God.
