Did Jesus believe he was the Son of God?
I believe that Jesus, God’s anointed King (aka Messiah) is God’s Holy Son.
Jesus is God’s Son in that He was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:35 declares, “The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.’”
God declared it to be true. God said “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”
Jesus declared it to be true.
Do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? | John 10:36
And again in Luke 22:70 Jesus makes it clear.
And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”
Here is the good news! Jesus is the Son of God. Everyone who encounters Him comes away knowing it. It moves and motivates me. Jesus, the Son of God, died for me. I, like the Roman Captain at the foot of the cross, can’t ignore it.
Luke 22:70 — And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”
Watch Sonny Ramsay teach on 1 John. Can the evil one touch us?
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the one who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know the true one. We are in the true one—that is, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.Little children, guard yourselves from idols. 1 John 5:18-21
Jesus, the Messiah, is the Son of God. God says it and Jesus affirms it. As the Apostle John says:
“And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.”1 John 5:11-12
We must confess that Jesus is the Son of God. Why? Because it is true. Jesus is the Truth. Jesus is the Way to God.

They did not know he was speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own. But just as the Father taught me, I say these things. The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do what pleases him.”John 8:27-29 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
Jesus could do something, but He did not. Jesus chose not to do. What Jesus did do is obey. Jesus only did what He saw His Father doing. That is all He did.
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, the Son is not able to do anything on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son likewise does these things. For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he is doing, and he will show him greater works than these so that you will be amazed. And just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so the Son also gives life to whom he wants. The Father, in fact, judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son, so that all people may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.John 5:19-23
This is the secret of power living. We can only do what we see the Father doing.
We must examine everything carefully. How do we do this. By the scriptures.
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed. You know those who taught you, and you know that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.2 Timothy 3 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
