Those of us who have already accepted Jesus Christ of Nazareth as Lord of our life– not in word only, but in deed.
- All brethren are Christians, but not all Christians are brethren:
- “Many will say to me [Jesus] in that day [judgement day], Lord, Lord, have we [false brethren] not prophesied in thy [Jesus’] name? and in thy [Jesus’] name have cast out devils? and in thy [Jesus’] name done many wonderful works?”(Matthew 7:22).
- And then will I [Jesus] profess unto them, I [Jesus] never knew you [false brethren]: depart from me, ye [false brethren] that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:23).
Those who profess with their mouths to be Christians (followers of Christ), but they do not live their lives in a manner that Christ would approve of and/or do not obey Christ’s teachings.
- A professed “Christian” who does not obey Christ’s teachings is deceiving himself.
- “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” (James 1:22).
- False brethren may fall into one or more of several subcategories, such as:
- False prophets
- False teachers
- False evangelists
- False apostles
- False pastors
- Christ warned us of these false brethren:
- “Beware of false prophets [including false teachers, false evangelists, false apostles, and false pastors], which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Matthew 7:15).
There are several names and titles all used to refer to the same Person who is most commonly known as Jesus Christ. This is because of the several offices, worlds, Kingdoms, and forms of existence that he operates within and/or posses.
As brethren, we sometimes specify “Jesus Christ of Nazareth” when speaking to non-brethren to avoid confusion. This is because our Christ warned us that there would be many false Christs who would come in his name, pretending to be him:
- “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my [Jesus’] name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4-5).
In this Domain, we may use any of the following names and titles (or any combination thereof) to refer to Jesus Christ of Nazareth:
- Jesus, Christ, Christ Jesus, Jesus Christ
- Iesous Kristos
- Word of God
- The Lamb of God
- Mighty Warrior
- Prince of Peace
- Lord of lords
- King of kings
- The Logos

The list above is not exhaustive, as there are numerous names and titles for Jesus Christ of Nazareth. But you will always know, from the context, whom it is we are speaking of.
