Об этой электронной книге

It is every journalist's dream to land the assignment of interviewing an extremely famous (or infamous), influential celebrity or politician — especially if there has been controversy generated by the person's actions.

The BBC reporter David Frost interviewed Richard Nixon shortly after he had resigned as President of the United States. The interview was broadcast on television around the world, and it garnered some of the highest ratings ever recorded for a news show.

Other highly rated televised interviews of this type that come to mind are Barbara Walter's interview with Monica Lewinsky about her affair with President Bill Clinton and, more recently, Diane Sawyer's interview with Bruce Jenner shortly before the famous Olympic decathlete transitioned his gender to female.

But, here, in Danny Clifford's, Who Do You Say I Am? We encounter The Luckiest Journalist in the History of the World. His assignment is to interview none other than the Son of God Himself — Jesus Christ.

Clifford's engaging style draws the reader in, and the book becomes a sort of "Let me explain what went on behind the scenes and set the record straight" opportunity for Jesus to clarify — in plain, everyday language — some of the deepest, most enduring mysteries of all time: His own life and mission.

Christians the world over should enjoy this fascinating — if only imagined — sit-down session with the most influential human being who ever lived.

    Who Do You Say I Am - Danny Clifford

    Chapter 1

    The Only Begotten Son

    The most controversial person in the history of the world, without question, is Jesus of Nazareth. What makes Jesus so divisive is people not knowing and understanding His relationship to the human race and to His Father, the only true Most-High God.

    People all over the world want to know the truth about who Jesus really is. We want to know about heaven and how to attain heavenly status. We want to know the truth about creation, sin, the devil, the spiritual realm, and how we humans should treat God. We want to understand why the human race is going through so much suffering from famines, wars, sicknesses, diseases, destruction, and death.

    So today, I have the honor of introducing you to a man that has done the impossible hundreds of times. He was born in Bethlehem in a manger, by way of eternity in Heaven. His mother’s picture or statue is in every Catholic Church in the world. His Father is the Author of a Book that has been on the best-seller list since the beginning of time.

    This man walked on water, turned water into wine, and fed 5000 hungry men with two fish and five loaves of bread and had 12 baskets of food left over. He raised every dead body he encountered back to life.

    I introduce to you the Son of Man, who gave His life for you and me; He was raised from death’s tomb back to life, never to die again. Instead, He ascended into heaven, where He now sits on His Father’s throne.

    Please welcome into your hearts and minds Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, and listen as He answers many of your questions in this intimate interview.


    Jesus, when did you come to exist as the Son of God?


    Although Christians usually say that I am the Son of God, only a few actually believe one of the most important truths about me. I pre-existed as the Son of God long before I was born in the flesh as the Son of Man through my virgin birth with Mary more than two thousand years ago.

    My Father God is the only true God and the absolute source of all things. Everything originated from Him, including me. I am literally the Spirit Son of my Spirit Father God by spiritual birth.

    I am unique in that I had a beginning before all creation. In Proverbs, the Bible says, "The Lord possessed me in the beginning, before he created anything else. From ages past, I am. I existed before the earth began. I lived before the oceans were created, before the springs bubbled forth their waters onto the earth, before the mountains and the hills were made.

    Yes, I was brought forth before God made the earth and fields and the first handfuls of soil. I was there when he established the heavens and formed the great springs in the depths of the oceans. I was there when he set the limits of the seas and gave them his instructions not to spread beyond their boundaries. I was there when he made the blueprint for the earth and oceans. I was the craftsman at his side. I was his constant delight, rejoicing always in his presence." (Proverbs 8:22-30 Living Bible TLB)


    Jesus, will you explain what only begotten son means?


    My Spirit birth can be compared with Isaac’s human birth to Abraham and Sarah. Isaac was born as the second son, born of Abraham 14 years after Ishmael was born. However, Isaac was the only begotten son of his Father Abraham, because he was the only son my Father promised to Abraham.

    You see, Isaac was born according to the Spirit, unlike the first son, Ishmael, who was born according to Sarah’s plan. She arranged to have her Egyptian slave servant Hagar bear children through Abraham because she was getting too old to have children. (Galatians 4:28-31 and Genesis chapters 16 and 17.)

    My Father spoke to Abraham when Ishmael was 13 years old and told him He would bless Sarah and give him a son from her! I will bless her richly, and she will become the mother of many nations. Kings of nations will be among her descendants. Abraham bowed down to the ground and laughed to himself in disbelief. How could I become a father at the age of 100? he thought. And how can Sarah have a baby when she is 90 years old?

    Abraham asked My Father, May Ishmael live under your special blessing! My Father told Abraham, "No! Sarah, your wife, will give birth to a son for you. You will name him Isaac, and I will confirm my covenant with him and his descendants as an everlasting covenant. As for Ishmael, I will bless him also, just as you have asked. I will make him extremely fruitful and multiply his descendants. He will become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will be confirmed with Isaac, who will be born to you and Sarah about this time next year." (Genesis 17 NLT)

    So, as Isaac was the only begotten son of his Father Abraham, I am the only begotten (promised) Son of my Father, God.

    As Isaac’s human seed was in the body of his father Abraham before he could be born, my Spirit Seed was in my Spirit Father God before I was brought forth. Of course, the difference between my birth and Isaac’s birth is that Abraham needed a human wife, Sarah, for Isaac to be born, but my Father is Spirit, not a man; therefore, He did not need a spirit wife for me to be brought forth spiritually. (John 4:24)

    Begotten is what God intended or promised. I am the only begotten Son of God, and Isaac was the only begotten son of Abraham. This is what my Father intended and promised.


    Jesus, some people are confused with your claims to be the Son of God, the Son of Man, and also be God. Would you clarify the confusion? Are you truly the Son of God and God?


    Let me address your three-part question by first answering the Son of God part. As I explained, I am the only begotten Son born of my Spiritual Father, God, making me the Son of God.

    Now let me address the second part of your question—one that has not been explained well, thus leaving many people confused, doubting, and puzzled. The question is, How is it possible for me to be God, in the flesh?

    When I was born in the flesh from Mary my mother, who was impregnated supernaturally by my Father’s Holy Spirit, I was born in the flesh as God’s Son and/or the Son of God. Therefore, I am God in the flesh, but only as God the Son. I am a separate and subordinate God, always obedient to my Father, who is the only true and most High God.

    My Father is omniscient—meaning He is unlimited in His knowledge, in His awareness, and in His understanding. He perceives all things.

    He is also omnipresent—meaning He is present everywhere at the same time.

    God, My Father, is omnipotent. He is called Almighty God because of His great, unlimited authority and power.

    My Father is Spirit, and He brought me forth just like Himself. I am Spirit, and I inherited all of His attributes and qualities. Like My Father, I am immortal, holy, righteous, loving, just, gracious, merciful, forgiving, and more.

    However, I am not a co-equal God with my Father. My Father is always greater than me, as I sit at His right hand on our heavenly thrones.

    My Father has put everything under my feet. Now when I say that everything is under my feet, this does not include My Father God. We function together in total harmony, in one accord. I am subordinate to My Father, always obedient and submissive to His Will.

    In summary, I’ll answer the third and final part of your question, How and/or why am I the Son of Man?

    The Jewish people couldn’t understand how I could be the Messiah, because I grew up and lived in Nazareth they assumed I was born in Nazareth. They also thought my step-father Joseph was my actual father. So some referred to me as son of man, meaning no way was I the Messiah, because I was the "son of a
