1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

4 For every house is builded by some [man;] but he that built all things [is] God.

Some false religions say that Jesus was a lesser god than Jehovah. This is contrary to what the Bible teaches. There are many false gods and One True God. So, biblically, any lesser god would also be a false god.

It is clear from Scripture that Jesus is the One True God. It may be difficult to imagine how God could be a man, or how a man could be God. Maybe this analogy will help your imagination. In this story there is a man who is able, at any time, to lift 500 kilograms. This man decided that, for one day, next Tuesday, he was not going to lift anything heavier than 10 kilograms. This would be a serious limitation for the man, in one sense. But, in another sense, he still could really lift 500 kilograms any time during that Tuesday. It was only his decision that prevented him from doing so. See Philippians 2:5-11.

There are two times in the book of Revelation when John mistakenly started worshipping an angel. Both times the angel rebuked John and commanded him to worship God instead. Several times in the Bible it is mentioned that people came and worshipped Jesus. If Jesus was not God in the flesh, then He should have done the same as the angel did and redirected that worship to God, but He never did.

1 Timothy 3:16 God was manifest in the flesh
