FEAR HIM, or fear them?  

The Real First Angel's Message of Revelation 14

Who is the God of the Bible?  Is He really a plurality of persons?

“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” – Revelation 14:6-7.

WHAT HE is, is a HOLY SPIRIT.

 

Who is God?  Where is the part in the Bible that says God is divisible by persons?  We can definitely see the following:

 

God is a Spirit - John 4:23-24 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  v24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

God is light – 1 John 1:5 - This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

 

Our God is a consuming fire – Hebrews 12:29 -  For our God is a consuming fire.

 

God is Love – 1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 

(also Romans 8:39)

 

God is, God the Father - John 6:27, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Galatians 1:1, 1:3, Ephesians 6:23, Philippians 2:11, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Peter 1:17, 2 John 1:3, Jude 1:1.

 

God is the Holy Father - John 17:11 - And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 

 

God is Holy, His existence is referred to as Holy - “I AM HOLY” - Joshua 24:19, Leviticus 11:44, 45, 19:2, 21:8, 21:22, 1 Samuel 2:2, 6:20, 1 Chronicles 29:16, Psalm 71:22, 78:41, 99:5, 99:9, 106:47, Isaiah 5:16, 29:23, 30:15, 43:3, 48:17, 52:10, 54:5, 55:5, 60:9, Jeremiah 60:9, 51:5, Ezekiel 20:39, 36:22, 39:25, Hosea 11:9, Habakkuk 1:12, 3:3, Ephesians 4:30, Revelation 4:8.

GOD IS A SPIRIT!

 

God is a Spirit - John 4:23-24 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  v24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

God is SPIRIT and this SPIRIT is HIS SPIRIT.  In Scripture, God the Father's Spirit, is the Holy Spirit. The Father is SPIRIT and THIS SPIRIT is HIS SPIRIT, and HIS SPIRIT is HIS Holy Spirit. Scripture makes this incredibly plain.

 

But in the dark deception of the trinity doctrine world, the Father's SPIRIT and the Holy Spirit are two different things or beings. They cannot confess that the Father who is SPIRIT is THE SPIRIT which is the Holy Spirit or their doctrine collapses. So they deny the obvious truth of the matter for the sake of their man made idol, the trinity doctrine.  In the trinity doctrine world, the Holy Sprit is someone else.

 

According to other doctrines which includes Unitarians and some trinitarians, Jesus Christ is the ‘eternal, self-existent God,’ known as 'god the son', viewing Him as the 'One God', even thinking Jesus is the Father also. But to believe that Jesus is also the 'Father' Himself is to believe that Jesus is the immortal God but he died, but didn’t die because God cannot die, is the invisible God that no man can see, but was seen, is as great (in authority) as His Father but said His Father is greater than He, is the begotten Son and the unbegotten God, yet came out from Himself, prayed to Himself in John 17, gave power to Himself, thanked Himself, bore witness of Himself, went back to Himself, sits at the right hand of Himself, is His own Father and His own Son, left Heaven and yet was there all the time.  And so the CONFUSION of Babylon shows through here!

 

Ephesians 4:3-6 - “….keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, v4 one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling, v5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, v6 one

God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.”

One God and Father of all, who is over all, above all and through all and in all.  God the Father is above all.  One body and one Spirit, keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.   This unity literally reflects oneness.  But I’m not talking about the oneness as believed by a particular denomination where Jesus is the Father and Son and Holy Spirit.  I’m talking about  the oneness of the Spirit.   Why do we only know one Spirit other than our own spirit?  The Spirit testifies to our spirit that we are children of God.  

 

Romans 8 – “v9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you….. v11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.  v14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  v15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  v16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:   v17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. v26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  v27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”

 

The body of Christ only knows one Spirit, the Holy Spirit.   For all of us who believe, there is ONE Spirit, not two, or three, or four, or more….

 

2 Corinthians 2:10, 12 – “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  v12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” 

 

Ephesians 2:18 - For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

 

So when the Bible says God the Father is Spirit, you think it just might be this one Spirit?

 

John 4:23-24 – “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth for such people the Father seeks to be his worshipers.  God is Spirit, and

those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth.”

 

God the Father is SPIRIT!  Do we want to be truthful in who we worship?  But in the doctrine of the trinity, the Father is not the Spirit, the Son is not the Spirit, the Spirit is not the Father, the Spirit is not the Son, so the third person of the trinity comes to dwell in believers when it comes to the doctrine of the trinity.   That can't be the Father and Son, because the Spirit is not the Father, the Spirit is not the Son, the Son is not the Spirit, and the Son is not the Father in the doctrine of the trinity and is not.  They got a contraption here that doesn't make any sense, but they don't care.  They only care about making excuses for their manmade God which therefore becomes an idol or false god.  You can't say the first person is the third person in the doctrine of the trinity because that would make the first person in the third identical and you wouldn't have three persons anymore.  In trinity world, the Spirit that God is, God the Father, cannot be the Holy Spirit nor can they admit that God’s Spirit is Holy or their doctrine disintegrates.

 

And so with a collapsed doctrine, they just deny that the Spirit in John 4:24 which the Father is, could be the Holy Spirit because it doesn't suit their doctrine.   And in trinitarianism, the Father is not the Holy Spirit, and who knows, maybe the Father might not even be a Spirit.  In the trinity doctrine the Holy Spirit is someone else.  The SPIRIT OF GOD is someone else.  The Spirit of the Father is not the Father's own Spirit, but someone else.   Already you should see something wrong.  

 

Romans 8:11 – “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit which dwells in you.”

 

Don’t you think this is talking about God the Father’s own Spirit?  “His Spirit.” Do you think it might be talking about that same Spirit that's being mentioned in John 4:24, that God the Father is Spirit?

 

1 John 4:13 – “By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.” (Him = God the Father if you see the context)

                                                           

“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” 

 

1 Thessalonians 4:8 – “He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.  

 

“So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.” (New American Standard Bible)

 

Hmm, lets think about this now. God the Father is Spirit, and he gives His Holy Spirit to us, but we're supposed to believe that God the Father is Spirit, but the Spirit that He is, isn't His Holy Spirit that he gives us. That would be what is called, trinitarianism.

 

God the Father's own Spirit is mentioned in 1 Thessalonians 4:8, His Holy Spirit.  Do you think that might be the Spirit mentioned in John 4:24?   God is Spirit.  Doesn’t this make sense?

 

Matthew 12:18 – “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him.”

 

God the Father says this.   Do you think he might be talking about his own Spirit?   Do you think God the Father might be talking about the fact that he is Spirit, and He's going to put his own Spirit upon his son Jesus.  Do you think?

 

Luke 4:18 – “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor….”   (The Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of God, YAHWEH.)

 

God is Spirit.   God the Father is Spirit.   Do you think the Spirit of Yahweh that was put on Jesus might be the Father's own Spirit?  The

Bible does tell us that God (the Father) IS Spirit.

 

Acts 2:17 – “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh….”   (This is the promise of the Father.)

 

Luke 24:49 – “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”

 

Acts 1:4-5 – “And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.  v5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”

 

Jesus tells us in the above statements that it was God the Father who said this.   It was God the Father who made this promise.  Jesus tells us plainly and explicitly.   God the Father is Spirit, and he says I will pour forth My Spirit.

 

Since God the Father is Spirit, do you think that when he says I will pour forth my Spirit, He is talking about his own Spirit which he is?  Or do you think He is talking about someone else, another person that is “my Spirit?”   What do you think?  God the Father is Spirit.  I will pour out My Spirit.  These points should be repeated over and over because of the years of error that have been drummed into our minds.

 

Matthew 10:20 – “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.”

 

Do you think when the Bible says, “the Spirit of your Father” that it might be God the Father's Spirit?  Remember, there's only one Spirit in the body of Christ.

 

“…keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  v4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  v5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  v6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”  Ephesians 4:3-6

 

To those that believe in “fear them,” how are the children of God expected to believe what is being discussed here are two different spirits?  Any honest person doesn't even have to be a child to God and see this.

 

“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  John 4:23-24 (NASB)

 

Matthew 10:20 - “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.”  The context of what Jesus is talking about here is obvious in the previous Scriptures of Matthew 10.

 

Matthew 10:16-20 – “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.  v17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;  v18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.  v19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.  v20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.”

 

Jesus says you are going to be dragged before leaders (councils, governors and kings) and will need to bear a testimony.   He said don't plan ahead or worry about what you're going to say.  Because it's not you who speaks or will speak, but the Spirit of your Father who will speak to you in what to say.   Look at what he says in Luke (same context), they're going to be dragged before magistrates and political powers as a testimony. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.  It's a little bit obvious isn't it?

 

Luke 12:12 – “For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.”

 

God is Spirit.  God the Father is Spirit.  What would we call that? 

 

The Spirit of your Father…maybe or the Spirit of the Father who is

Spirit?   You think?   Where it gets really interesting is in:

 

Luke 21:15 -  “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.“

 

God is Light.

 

1 John 1:5 – “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no

darkness at all.”

Our God is a Consuming Fire.

Hebrews 12:28-29 – “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:  v29 For our God is a consuming fire.”

God is Love.

 

1 John 4:7-11, 16 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  v8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  v9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  v10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. v11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.  v16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

 

Romans 8:39 - Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God is, God the Father.

This is His commonly known identity, or some would say, title.

 

John 6:27 - Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

 

1 Corinthians 8:6 - But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

 

Galatians 1:1 - Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

 

Philippians 2:11 - And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

2 Peter 1:17 - For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

God the Father is Holy.  God the Father is Spirit.  By now, I hope that just maybe you are seeing  that our Holy God is a Holy Spirit?  That just maybe His Spirit is Holy Spirit?  It’s obvious to the children of God.  The Spirit of God is used many times in the Bible, 26 times to be exact.  These are all of the passages of scripture with the words "Spirit of God" in them.  There are parallels here that plainly reveal what and who this Spirit belongs to.  It is the very Spirit of YAHWEH, the Father.  Are we listening?

 

The Spirit of God.

1 John 4:2 - Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

 

The expression, the Spirit of God.  I wonder what that means.  Those words, “OF GOD.”  God's Spirit.   Do you think?  God is Spirit.   Maybe it's talking about that one specifically, don’t you think?  

 

Isaiah 61:11 - The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

 

The Spirit of your Father.   God the Father is Spirit.   God is Holy.  He has a Holy Spirit.  What He is, is a Holy Spirit.  This is obvious folks.  But those that want to pretend to “fear them” and teach that God is a plurality of persons can't have it this way.   So they deny the facts dishonestly for the sake of their man-made God, their idol which they have crafted.  Is the Holy Spirit the god of the man Jesus Christ too?   So if God the Father is the God of the man Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is a third person who is god, well wouldn't he have to be the god of Jesus too?  So Jesus would end up having not only two Fathers but also two Gods himself.  Or is just the Father, God, and the Holy Spirit is simply the Father's Spirit and not a separate third person?   I am not intending on confusing you here, but laying out the reality of the confusion of a doctrine created by man.   To answer the above correctly, yes, the Father is God and His (or the) Holy Spirit is His Spirit.  HOW, we don’t know.  That would involve the nature of the Spirit.

 

Matthew 1:20 – “Do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife for the child who has being begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit.”

 

“The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most high will overshadow you and for that reason the begotten holy one shall be called son of God.”  Luke 1:35

 

In trinity world, Jesus was begotten by one person and only at the time of the incarnation from Mary. Their god the holy spirit begat baby Jesus.  Someone else turns out to be Jesus’ Father, someone who is not the real Holy Spirit.   The first person of the trinity somehow is the Father of baby Jesus even though another person, someone else altogether begat baby Jesus (supposedly). That's quite the magic trick.  I hope you are able to follow me here, because the deception gets confusing.  Or maybe the Father, God the Father turns out to be the real and only Father of Jesus because baby Jesus was begotten by God the Father's OWN SPIRIT.  Yes!  God the Father is Spirit and he begot baby Jesus by THAT SPIRIT

 

If we follow the logic of the Trinitarian world, Jesus has two Fathers, so shouldn’t he have two gods?  That is not what the Bible teaches, nor was it ever the testimony of Jesus.  One God and Father of Jesus Christ….

 

Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

 

John 17:3 - And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 

John 20:17 - Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

 

2 Corinthians 11:31 - The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

 

1 Peter 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

 

Ephesians 1:17 - That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

 

Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

 

1 Corinthians 11:3 - But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

 

Romans 15:6 - That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

1 Corinthians 15:28 - And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

 

Revelation 11:15-17 - “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.  v16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,  v17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.”

 

We see in Revelation 11, that the 24 elders fell on their face and worshipped God.  It is mentioned, “kingdoms of our Lord,” Lord as in God the Father.  Because after that it mentions “and of his Christ.”  So it is pointing to God the Father as THE GOD, O Lord God Almighty.  If you are wrestling with this information, it is because of the overwhelming DOGMA or living in a Trinitarian world. After all, in the dark ages and middle ages, if you did not subscribe to this strange god, Rome’s authority would look to put you to death.  And it won’t be long now into the future, that history will repeat itself as all  the  Evangelicals   and  Protestants  have  joined  hands  with  the

Papacy forgetting the blood bath of history.

 

Revelation 14:7 – “…..worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

Worship Him or worship them?

 

“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth for such people the Father seeks to be his worshipers.  God is SPIRIT, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth.”  John 4:23-24

 

Trinitarians in the corruption of their hearts refuse to accept the obvious facts of John 4:24 because it annihilates their doctrine.  This verse is indeed saying God the Father is the Holy Spirit, God the Father is Spirit, and THAT Spirit that He is turns out to be is THE Holy Spirit.  You could say the trinity doctrine collapses with just this one single Scripture.  So what is the Trinitarian solution to this problem?   Deny the obvious facts with lies and deception. 

 

Worship Him in Spirit and truth.   Seems to me I heard language like that somewhere else before.   I wonder now what does that sound like?   Well, first worship the Father in SPIRIT and truth.

 

Romans 8:11, 14, 16 - “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit which dwells in you.  v14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.  v16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God.” 

 

God is Spirit.  As sons of God, that same Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are children of God.  His Spirit!  Yes, we worship the Father in Spirit and truth by being led by the Father's own Spirit. 

 

Spirit and truth.  Where else have we seen that before?   When the comforter comes that Jesus will be sending to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth which proceeds from the Father.  Is that the same Holy Spirit by which we worship the Father in Spirit and truth?  Do you think there might be a connection between these two verses?  Maybe the Spirit of truth proceeds from the Father because God is Spirit?  

 

John 15:26 – “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.”

 

Maybe the Spirit of Truth proceeds from the Father because “God is Spirit and the Spirit in question is the Father’s own Spirit.”

 

 “I will ask the Father and He will give you another comforter… the Spirit of Truth….  if anyone loves me, he will keep my word and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him….”  

 

John 14:16-23 – “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;  v17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  v18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  v19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.  v20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.  v21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  v22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  v23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

 

In the trinity world this is impossible.  The Father is a Spirit but not the Holy Spirit.  For the body of Christ there is only one Spirit, the Father’s Spirit working through him. But not in the trinity world.   So if the third person of the trinity comes to make his home in us as well as the Father comes to make his home in us, that would be two spirits, would it not?  Yes it would.  But for the body of Christ there is only one Spirit.  In verse 17, we have two subsets of people….

1) Those that see and know, and 2) those that cannot see and do not know. For those that see and know, they see and know Jesus dwelling with them in human flesh as the Son of Man.  But Jesus says this Spirit of truth “shall be in you,” as in future tense once he goes away.  He says, “I will not leave you comfortless, I will comfort to you.”  How does he do this?  Through the Father’s Spirit, which will be sent through Christ.  In verse 20 there seems to be a third person from the trinity doctrine missing there. Even Judas in verse 22 knew Christ would come unto them in the Spirit, but just did not know HOW.  In verse 23 we have the Father and Son coming to make their home, or abode with the believer.  It’s not three persons here.  If the Father is not the Holy Spirit, then how does the Father dwell in the believer?  How is there only one Spirit?

 

In the trinity doctrine, the Father is not the Holy Spirit, but another spirit.   So if the Holy Spirit is not the Father, then its not the Father who comes to dwell in us when the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in us because the Holy Spirit is not the Father and the Father is not the Holy Spirit.  It is told to us that it is (an unknown entity not found in Scripture under the title) “god the holy spirit.”  But the Father DOES come to dwell in us, for us there is only one Spirit.  Hence that one Spirit is God the Father's own Spirit.  God is Spirit!  The Holy Spirit of our Holy Father.  God is Holy.

 

The Spirit of Christ.

 

Galatians 4 – v4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, v5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.  v6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.  v7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

 

Luke 21:15 -  “For I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.“ (this is Jesus speaking)

 

1 Corinthians 15:45  - “The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.  v46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.  v47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.” 

 

The first Adam was Adam, who was the beginning of man.  But the last Adam or second man is Jesus who became a quickening Spirit, the Lord from heaven.

 

“Now the Lord is that spirit.”  2 Corinthians 3:17

 

Paul tells us just a few verses later that he's preaching Jesus Christ is Lord, the Lord is the Spirit, namely the risen Christ.  And that's why Paul also says we no longer know Christ according to the flesh.   Why? What is the obvious implication is that we know Christ according to the Spirit. 

 

2 Corinthians 5 – “v16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.  v17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  v18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  v19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”

 

The Father and the Son come to make their home in believers because the Father and the Son are THAT Spirit.   The comforter, the Holy Spirit is what comes to dwell in us and only when you understand it in that way, will this ever make any sense.  Because there's only one Spirit in the body of Christ, and Jesus is describing how the disciples will receive this one Spirit.   When they receive this one Spirit, the Father and the Son come to make their home in the disciples, or you the believer.  How?  That would deal with the nature of the Spirit which we are not intended on knowing.

 

“Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?” John 14:22

 

Judas just asked Jesus, HOW are you going to come to us, and how come not to the world.  You see, the disciples understood the third person language (illeism) that Jesus was flipping back and forth into during his discourse to them, they knew WHO was coming.  They just couldn’t figure out the HOW part.  Many Christians today don’t even know the WHO.  They are taught it is this mystery literal third person called ‘god the holy spirit.’  Not the Father, and not Christ.  That is the invention of Satan who was jealous of God and Christ as a real Father and Son and devised this in order to get wrongful worship.

 

“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23

 

1 John 4 -  “v11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.  v12 No man hath seen God at any time.  If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.  v13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.  v14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.”

 

Who is it that gives us HIS SPIRIT?  God is Spirit.  God the Father!

 

Numbers 11:29 – “And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!”

 

Job 26:13 – “By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.”

 

Zechariah 7:12 – “Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.”

 

1 Corinthians 2:10 – “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

 

No multiples of the Spirit here.  Not one for the Holy Spirit, one Spirit of the Father and another Spirit of the Son.   Only one!  One Holy Spirit.  The Father is Spirit, and now also His risen Son is the Spirit.  For the body of Christ there is one Spirit, not two, not three. 

 

In Romans 8, Paul talks about having the mind of the Spirit as opposed to the mind of the flesh.   And if we have the mind of the Spirit, what do we have the mind of?  The mind of Christ, the Spirit of Christ because the risen Christ is that Spirit having been bodily clothed and consumed in the Spirit of the Living God that now comes to us.  How this is, gets into the nature of the Spirit which cannot be explained. 

 

Romans 8:5 – “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things after the flesh do mind the  things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.”

 

1 Corinthians 2:16 – “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

 

Who is the Creator of Heaven and the Earth?

Lets start out with our key theme text from Revelation 14:7, just to set the tone here.

 

Revelation 14:7 - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Does it say to give glory to “them”? 

No, it says give glory to “him”.

Does it say the hour of “their” judgment is come? 

No, it says “his”.

Does this say worship “them”? 

No, it says worship “him”.

 

These are ALL SINGULAR terms, no plurality.  If God is three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the trinity doctrine subscribes, then how can you claim the first angel’s message of Revelation 14? 

 

Because it would be more like:  “Fear God, and give glory to THEM; for the hour of THEIR judgment is come: and worship THEM that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

 

But that is NOT what the Scripture says in Revelation 14. Instead we will see the clear reference to God being one single being, not two, three or more.

 

Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

Genesis 14:19 - And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

 

Genesis 14:22 - And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

 

Exodus 20:11 - For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

Exodus 31:17 - It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

 

2 Kings 19:15 - And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

 

2 Chronicles 2:12 - Huram said moreover, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

 

Ezra 5:11 - And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.

 

Psalm 115:15 - Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.

 

Psalm 121:2 - My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

 

Psalm 124:8 - Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

 

Psalm 134:3 -The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.

 

Psalm 146:5-6 – v5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: v6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

 

Isaiah 37:16 - O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.

 

Isaiah 44:24-25 - Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself.

Isaiah 45:18 - For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

 

Jonah 1:9 - And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

 

And here Jesus confirms to us who is the Lord or heaven and earth in these next two Scriptures.  It is His Father, God the Father.

 

Matthew 11:25 - At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

 

Luke 10:21 - In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

 

Acts 4:24 - And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

 

Acts 14:15 - And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:

 

Acts 17:24 - God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

 

Revelation 4:11 - Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 

The Action of  Creation.

 

Here in the first book of Genesis, we see thirteen texts covering the action of creation, ordering things to exist or be in place with the words, “God said,” or “God called.” Both of these words deal with the mouth, or verbalization of the action. A few additional texts involving creation are also included here, which extend into chapter 2 of Genesis.  At this point, I would hope we would realize who God is and to know He is a single Spirit being.  Not divisible by three, or three persons, or any combo of 1 in 3 or 3 in 1.

 

Strong’s Concordance tells us the Hebrew word and the Greek word translated as spirit in the Bible have the same meaning.  The Hebrew word רוּח† ‘ruach’ means breath (also “wind”) which is the same word translated as spirit in Genesis 1:2.  The Greek word ‘pneuma’ means, wind, breath, spirit.  In other words, if wind and breath are the same idea, then spirit must also fit the pattern.

 

The word spirit must have something to do with breath and wind. Breath and wind is something living things do. Breath is not a living being. Wind is not a living being . If spirit is another word for breath and wind, then it also is not a living being.  All three words have to do with life.  A breathing being has a personality.  And a personality can also be defined as characteristics of that breathing being. The personality of a living being is its spirit. The personality of God is His Holy Spirit.  And in Genesis 1:2, the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 

 

Genesis 1:2 - And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 

Something vital to note here.  It says the Spirit of God.  We are talking about something in possessive language or terminology.  It does not say, god the holy spirit.  It is the Spirit of God which already belongs to Him (YAHWEH, the Father).  The false teaching and doctrine that brings in a "god the holy spirit" is what is being taught in the churches today.  It creates a third being that does not exist separate from God the Father and Christ.

 

Was that the breath of God that moved upon the face of the waters?  Well, since he used his breath in speaking out creation, yes.  The Spirit of God in this verse is the very breath of God.

 

Genesis 1:3 - And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

 

Genesis 1:5 - And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

Genesis 1:6 - And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

 

Genesis 1:8 - And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

Genesis 1:9 - And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

 

Genesis 1:10 – And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

 

Genesis 1:11 - And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

 

Genesis 1:14 - And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

 

Genesis 1:20 - And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

 

Genesis 1:21 - And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 

Genesis 1:24 - And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

 

Genesis 1:26 - And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:28 - And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 

Genesis 1:29 - And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 

Up to this point, recorded in Genesis 2 is: v1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.  v2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  v3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

 

Genesis 2:7 - And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 

Genesis 2:8-9 - And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.  v9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

Genesis 2:19 - And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 

Genesis 2:21-22 - And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;  v22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 

Fear God.

 

Revelation 14:7 – “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

 

What is this term, “fear God” and what does it mean?  I would imagine to those that are not the children of God, it would fall in line with, to be scared.  Straight out fear and trembling for those that are strange to Him that created heaven and earth.  But for the children of God, for those that know Him, it is saying something completely different.

 

From the following Scriptures, we will see that to “fear God,” means to have knowledge of God, obedience to his voice, follow His commandments, observe the words of the law, serve Him with all thy heart and soul, to love Him, cleave unto Him, walk in His ways, and to swear by His name (revere or to have reverence for His name).

 

Deuteronomy 5:29  - “O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!”

 

Deuteronomy 6:2 - That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

 

Deuteronomy 6:13 - Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

 

Deuteronomy 8:6 – “Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.”

 

Deuteronomy 10:12 - And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

 

Deuteronomy 10:20 - Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

 

Deuteronomy 13:4 - Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

 

Deuteronomy 28:58 - If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;

 

Deuteronomy 31:12 - Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:

 

Joshua 4:24 - That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.

 

1 Samuel 12:14 - If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:

 

Proverbs 2:5 - Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

 

Ecclesiastes 8:12 - Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:

 

Ecclesiastes 12:13 - Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. v14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

 

1 Peter 2:17 - Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God.  Honour the king.

 

1 John 5:2-3 - By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. v3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

 

Fear of the Lord.

 

Here we will see the examples and parallels of “fear of the Lord” equal to having wisdom and knowledge and departing from evil, having nothing to do with it.  By doing this, we are honoring God. 

 

Job 28:28 - And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

 

Psalm 19:9 - The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

 

Psalm 34:11 - Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

 

Psalm 111:10 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

 

Proverbs 1:7 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

 

Proverbs 1:29 - For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

 

Proverbs 2:5 - Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

 

Proverbs 8:13 - The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Proverbs 16:6 - By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

 

Proverbs 19:23 - The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

 

Proverbs 22:4 - By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

 

Proverbs 23:17 - Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

 

Here we see a future tense event in Isaiah 2 where those that ARE NOT the children of God will seek themselves to hide in the holes of rocks and caves to hide fearing God, as in totally scared for their lives.  This is known as the day of reckoning. The glory of His majesty, His brightness will shine oh so great, and the earth will tremble and shake.

 

Isaiah 2:10 - Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

 

Isaiah 2:19 - And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

 

Isaiah 2:21 - To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

 

Isaiah 11:2 - And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

 

Isaiah 11:3 - And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

 

Isaiah 33:6 - And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

 

From a previous section, we saw that to “fear God,” means to have knowledge of God, obedience to his voice, follow His commandments, observe the words of the law, serve Him with all thy heart and soul, to love Him, cleave unto Him, walk in His ways, and to swear by His name (revere or to have reverence for His name).  To do that, what do you think or propose we would have to do?  Does it go without saying, that to obey is to honor?  To serve with all thy heart and soul, would be in honor that that person?  Lets take a look at a number of Scriptures dealing with and describing such an action as to Honor the Lord.

 

Honour  the Lord.

 

Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase.

 

Exodus 14:18 - And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

 

Pharoah would work in defiance of the God that Moses served and believed in, the one living and true God.  Time after time, even after Pharoah would witness various plagues that would come upon him, even after challenging Moses with his sorcerers, yet Pharoah would still work against honoring the God of Moses.

 

If we are to honor our earthly parents, how much more shall we give praise and honor to the one that created heaven and earth, and made man into a living soul, to God the Father.

 

Exodus 20:12 - Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

 

Deuteronomy 5:16 - Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

 

Deuteronomy 26:19 - And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.

 

1 Samuel 2:30 - Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

 

Psalms 26:8 - LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.

 

Psalms 104:1 - Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

 

Proverbs 15:33 - The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

 

Proverbs 22:4 - By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

 

Isaiah 29:13 - Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

 

The seventh day Sabbath was set aside for mankind, that he can rest from his labors, just as our heavenly Father did after six days of literal creation.  He blessed the Sabbath day, sanctified and declared it holy.  We honor Him by remembering this memorial and keeping it holy.  (not Sunday)

 

Exodus 20:8-11 is the last of four commandments (commandment #4) given to man that deals with his vertical relationship between himself and the God of heaven.  (The next six commandments deal with our horizontal relationship between us and our fellow man.) Ninety-nine percent of the Christian world is following the lead role of Rome, established in 321 AD by gathering and worshiping on Sunday instead of the seventh day Sabbath (commonly called Saturday-a pagan name given after Saturn.)

 

Exodus 20: 8-11 – “v8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  v9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:  v10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:  v11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

 

So in the book of Isaiah, we have specific instruction about the Sabbath as an honor to God.

 

Isaiah 58:13 - If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

 

And at a future time event after the new heavens and the new earth are made, those that remain as the children of God will gather, keeping the Sabbath still.

 

Isaiah 66:23 – “And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”

 

Malachi 1:6 - A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

 

When everything is brought to order, when God is reconciled completely unto the world, and the wicked receive their reward, and the saints their reward, then we have a heavenly event taking place declaring the Lord our God; giving praise, glory and honor unto Him that made heaven and earth.

 

Revelation 19:1 - And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

 

Give Glory.

What does it mean to give glory to Him, to give glory to God?

 

Revelation 14:7 – “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

 

1 Samuel 6:5 - Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

 

1 Chronicles 16:29 - Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

 

Psalm 29:2 - Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

 

Psalm 115:1 - Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.

 

Isaiah 42:8 - I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

 

Isaiah 42:12 - Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

 

Jeremiah 13:16 - Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

 

Malachi 2:2 - If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.

 

Luke 17:18 - There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

 

Revelation 4:9, 11 - And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever. v11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 

Revelation  16:9 - And  men  were  scorched  with  great  heat,  and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

One living and true God.

The witness of these Scriptures are quite clear and precise.

 

Psalm 42:2 - My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

 

Jeremiah 10:10-12 - But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.  v11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.  v12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

 

In the above from Jeremiah, it is declared that there is a distinguishing difference between the real true and living God, and those other supposed gods.  One made heaven and earth, and then there are those others who the heathens can make all the claims they want about their gods, but they couldn’t and didn’t make heaven and earth.  In the pair of Scriptures next, King Darius is forced in Daniel 6 to put Daniel in the lion’s den because Daniel caught petitioning (praying) before his God.  Just previously, a statute went out before the land nixing such an action for thirty days.  So we go from Darius questioning and asking Daniel that surely if his God is the living God that is so great (that Daniel shared with him), that Daniel will be spared and come out alive from this event.  And then Darius makes a decree and a public statement of testimony as a result of Daniel not being eaten by the lions, that everyone should tremble and fear (respect and observe) the God of Daniel.

 

Daniel 6:20 - And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

 

Daniel 6:26 - I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.

 

Matthew 16:16 - And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

 

Matthew 26:63 - But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

 

John 17:3 - And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 

Romans 9:26 - And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

 

2 Corinthians 3:3 - Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

 

2 Corinthians 6:16 - And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 

1 Thessalonians 1:9 - For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;

 

1 John 5:20 - And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

None Else.

 

Deuteronomy 4:35 - Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.

 

Deuteronomy 4:39 - Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

 

1 Kings 8:60 - That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.

 

Isaiah 45:5 - I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

 

Isaiah 45:6 -  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside meI am the LORD, and there is none else.

 

Isaiah 45:18 - For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

 

Isaiah 45:22 - Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

 

Isaiah 46:9 - Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.

 

Joel 2:27 - And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 

According to the Bible, how many Gods are there?

 

The first commandment can’t be ignored.  It is laid out so easily and yet people have turned to being pew warmers and nod their head in agreement and unison with their clergy.  Whatever is said from the pulpit, they just agree.  Are we that lackluster in our lives that we cannot be vigilant students of the Bible?

 

Deuteronomy 6:4 - Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.

 

Mark 12:29 - And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord.

 

What is the first commandment from the Ten Commandments?

Exodus 20:2-3 - I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have no other gods before me

 

How many Gods are there again?

 

Ephesians 4:6 - One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

 

1 Timothy 2:5 - For there is one God.

 

James 2:19 - Thou believest that there is one God.

 

Jeremiah 10:10 - But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king.

 

1 Corinthians 8:4 - …there is none other God but one.

 

James 2:19 - Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

What does the apostle John record about Jesus, about the Son of God?

John’s record of Jesus as the identity of the Son of God never makes Jesus as God. 

There is no writer from the Bible greater in the knowledge or first hand account of Christ

than John as recorded in the Bible.

 

John 1:14 - And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

 

John 1:18 - No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

 

John 1:29 - The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

 

John 1:34 - And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

 

John 1:36 - And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

 

John 1:49 - Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

 

John 1:51 - And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

 

John 3:2 - The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

 

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

John 3:17 - For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 

John 3:18 - He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

John 3:35-36 - The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

 

John 5:18 - Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

 

Something to note here that is often missed, especially among Trinitarian believers.  In John 5:18, Jesus is not making himself of any reputation here.  He is not claiming that he is equal to God.  He has identified who his Father is, and the Jews put that equation together that NOW he is making himself equal to God.

 

John 5:25-27, 30 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.  v26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;  v27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.  v30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

 

John 6:27 - Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

 

John 6:29 - Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

 

John 6:69 - And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

 

John 7:17 - If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

 

John 8:40 - But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

 

John 8:42 - Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

 

John 8:54 - Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

 

John 9:35 - Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

 

John 10:33, 36 - The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.  v36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

 

The Jews were making a false accusation against Christ claiming he is God.  He associated God the Father as his Father, and that he was the Son of God.  But not the personality of God himself.  For those that might struggle with this statement, lets look at a parallel of Adam and Eve.  Adam has human nature and his personality is called Adam.  Eve has human nature but she is not Adam.  God the Father (YAHWEH) is THE GOD HEAD.  He is THE GOD NATURE.  Christ is a divine being (God nature some would refer to this as) but he is not the Father, who is known as YAHWEH.  In Hebrew, Jesus would be YASHUA (or other similar spelling choices).  So just like Eve is not Adam, Jesus is not the Father.  Eve has human nature, but her personality is not Adam. Jesus has Divine nature, but his personality is not YAHWEH.   Not understanding this correctly is how we end up with false doctrines of things like a god the son which in those words are not found in Scripture, but are then building blocks for idol worship under a trinity doctrine.  It’s also how we end up with trying to explain two gods.  Colossians 2:9 says, “For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”  The Divine Nature of the Father is found in His Son.

 

John 11:4 - When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

 

John 11:27 - She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

 

John 13:3 - Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

 

John 13:31 - Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

 

John 16:27 - For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

 

John 16:30 - Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

 

John 17:3 - And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 

Your eternal life is dependent upon knowing two individuals.  God the Father who is the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, the Son of God who God hath sent.  Jesus makes a point here in describing the Father as the ONLY true God.  Why?  Because there were plenty of false gods in his time just like there is today.   John 17:3 is part of a prayer from Jesus to his Father.

 

John 19:7 - The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

 

John 20:17 - Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

 

John 20:28 - And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

 

John 20:31 - But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

 

1 John 3:8 - He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

 

1 John 4:2-3 - Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  v3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

 

1 John 4:15 - Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

 

1 John 5:1, 5 - Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.  v5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

1 John 5:10-13 - He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.  v11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  v12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.  v13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

1 John 5:20 - And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

 

Him that is true” in the above Scripture is none other than God the Father.  But many trinitarians will say this is Jesus.  How can it be Jesus when it follows up with “even in his Son Jesus Christ.” ??  Is the first person of the trinity the same as the second person of the trinity; Jesus Christ?  I think not!

 

Revelation 2:18 – And unto the angel of the church in Thyatire write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass.

 

If the extensive lists of Scripture become tiring, it is because of all the errors that have been taught for so long.  To eradicate error, it can take a lot of extra effort.  One thing is for certain here, John did not teach that Jesus is God, as in God in personality.  And Jesus did not teach that he is God either.  Nor did he teach a trinity god, or that he was the second person of the trinity god.  However, this writer is not stealing the divine nature (often referred to as God nature) that was given Christ sometime in eternity when he was begotten of the Father.   How or why does Christ have divine nature?  It is because of his true Son-ship, that he came out from the Father, truly begotten.

Who is Jesus?

What did the disciples believe?  What was their witness?

What about many others in the Bible?

Mark 5:7 - And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with  thee,  Jesus, thou Son of the most high God?  I adjure thee  by God, that thou torment me not.

 

Luke 8:28 - When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. 

 

Here, Jesus was casting out a devil out of a demon-possessed person.  The fallen angel addressed Jesus as “the Son of the Most High God.” We see an example here of God being addressed as the “Most High God,” as Jesus is addressed as the “Son of the Most High God.”  These fallen angels were once the inhabitants of the heavens.  They know who God is.  And they know who Jesus is.  There is a clear distinction of the two.

 

God the Father saidMatthew 3:17 - And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

 

Matthew 17:5 - While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

 

Luke 3:22 - And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

 

Luke 9:35 - And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

 

What did God the Father say regarding the identity of Jesus?  Twice in Matthew (3:17 and 17:5) we have the witness that God gave of his Son when he said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”  And this was recorded by Luke as well.  There is no greater record than that of God the Father about His Son.

 

Are you starting to see how plain scripture can be?  When we pray to God for honest answers, open and dig into the scriptures for ourselves, he will deliver answers to us.  So far we have yet to see anyone make a direct statement that Jesus is God, as in personality.  We are not discussing or considering his divine nature here because of his Son-ship.  The Bible tells us there is gods many and lords many, but to the true believer, there is ONLY one ultimate above-all and in-all God in Heaven, the Father.  We will continue to have a look at Jesus’ own statements about who he said he was.  What you will see missing is a second person of the trinity god being taught or claimed.  No god the son language either.

 

Who Did Jesus Claim to Be?

 

High priest asked and Jesus answeredMark 14:61-62 - But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? v62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 

 

Chief Priests, elders, scribes, council asked and Jesus answered:  Luke 22:66-70 - And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, v67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:  v68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.  V69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.  v70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

 

John 10:36 - Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

 

Here we have Jesus answering back to the Jewish leaders making false claims against him that he made himself God (John 10:33).  For this they accused him of blasphemy.  People today make the same claim on him.   Yet Jesus  answered and said that he is “the Son of God.”  It would be this very statement that the Jewish leaders would use against him then to convince Pilate to put Jesus up for crucifixion in John 19:7.

 

John 19:7 – The Jews answered him, We have a law and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

 

Jesus said and referred to himself asMatthew 16:20 – Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

 

Mark 2:10 - But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

 

Mark 14:41 - And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

 

Luke 9:22 - Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

 

Luke 9:26 - For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words,  of  him  shall  the  Son  of  man  be ashamed,  when  he  shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

 

Luke 9:43-44 - And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, v44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.

 

Luke 9:55-56 - But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.  v56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

 

John 8:12 - Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 

John 8:28 - Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

 

John 10:36 - Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

 

Jesus saidMatthew 4:5 – Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, v6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. v7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. v8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; v9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.  v10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 

Matthew 22:37-38 – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  v38 This is the first and great commandment.

 

John 3:10, 13-18  - Jesus answered and said unto him…. v13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. v14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: v15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. v16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. v17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. v18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

John 17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 

John 20:17 - Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Jesus Came to do the Will of the Father.

He was representing his Father.

 

Matthew 12:50 – For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

 

John 4:34 – Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

 

John 5:30 - I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

 

John 6:38-40 - For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.  v39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. v40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

John 7:16-18 – Jesus answered them, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.  v17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether  I speak of myself.  v18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

 

John 8:28 - Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that  I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things

 

John 12:47-50 - And  if  any man  hear my words,  and believe not,  I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. v48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.  v49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.   v50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

 

John 14:10, 24 - Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. v24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

 

John 17:8, 21-24 - For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  v21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  v22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: v23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  v24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 

According to Jesus, who is the only true God?

 

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 

And Paul wrote in Romans 3:29 – Is he the God of the Jews only?  Is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also.

 

Have you noticed what is missing from the scriptures?  Does the Bible say that God is a God with three manifestations, or one God in three persons?  Three gods?  How about God the Father, god the son, and god the holy spirit?  This is NOT what the Bible teaches.  From the scriptures, the Bible teaches us the existence of only ONE GOD, and that is the Father.

 

God the Father is well laid out in the Bible, 13 times by title (some would say name) in the King James. But the actual titles of god the son and god the holy spirit you will not find.  And this needs all kinds of explaining.  Because error takes a lot of effort to unravel.

 

So where did this other belief come from?  It is called the trinity doctrine.  And sometimes it comes with slight variations.  But mostly this idea teaches us that God is one substance that is made of three persons.  The Father is a person, the Son is a person and the Holy Spirit is a person.  Each person is not a separate being, yet is more than a personality.  This person is not a full person because there is not three gods (even thou three titles identify three Gods) yet is more than a personality because each one of them is God on his own.   And yet there is this one god made up of three persons.

 

Are you confused yet?  To cover the confusion, they just claim and call this a “Mystery”.  No wonder, because it is a lot like creative gymnastic twisting of human philosophy.  But wait, there is more.

 

And what we hear from the pulpit is that these three are co-eternal.  That means they’ve always existed.  And they are co-equal from all times as well.  This removes the major identity of Jesus Christ as he is over and over submissive to the Father. And the Bible teaches that Jesus is the Son of God approximately 100 times.  In fact in the New Testament there are almost 600 verses involving the Father and Son alone.  The teaching of the “trinity” removes Jesus as the real, literal Son of God.  The trinity teaches that these three persons (God, Son, Holy Spirit) always existed together.  There was never a time when one came out from the other.  How can your spirit be someone else other than yourself?

 

The trinity allows for a third being, a literal third person even thou the Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is “their Spirit”, the one and same Spirit that comes from the Father and the Son.   And many will tell you that they do not know who this spirit is.  They call him god the holy spirit (use of un-capitalized words on purpose).  Some might say he is the guy running things here on earth.  Blasphemy!

 

You see, the under lying problem with the trinity doctrine is that it doesn’t support the Father and Son as a real relationship.  It can’t.  Because if you have three persons, beings, however you want to refer to them that are co-equal and co-eternal, then two of them CANNOT be a Father and Son.  Because they would have existed for the exact same time in space within eternity.  It would actually make them brothers.  Yes BROTHERS!  In fact, they would be TWINS!  Stop and think about that for a moment.  But hold on, now we have a third being that isn’t in scripture, and now those twins become TRIPLETS now.

 

Matthew 15:9 – “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”  The New Living translation records Matthew as “their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.”  

 

And yet if you stand up and say something, or believe differently, the leaders or rulers will persecute you over it, even dis-fellowship you. Isn’t that what is happening today?  Your lucky, because in the dark ages and middle ages, they killed you over it.  That is history, and it is about to happen again as the world tries to bring on a one world religion or method of worship.  Be forewarned!

 

The trinity doctrine breaks up God into three parts, God the Father, god the son, and god the holy spirit.  The Bible never calls Jesus by this title, ‘god the son’.  And the Bible never uses the title ‘god the holy spirit’.  Yes, God is a spirit, and he is Holy.  And He wants to be worshipped in Spirit and in Truth. But that is not how we refer to him. That is NOT His Name or even title.  Some might be saying, “what’s the difference?”. 

 

The Difference is in WHO YOU WORSHIP.

 

Remember that fallen angel that was thrown out of heaven?  He has entered into the picture to get false counterfeit worship. 

 

Isaiah 14:12-14 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  v13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  v14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

 

Here we see Satan clearly describing his aspiration to be like God.  Lucifer had an “I” problem.  He was jealous of God and jealous that Jesus was His Son and he had to answer to Jesus! 

 

The only way he could ever be worshipped would be to invent a false god and assume that position.  So, Satan has invented a false deity and assumes the role of a god that is holy.  But this angel that is a creature is nothing but an unholy spirit, nothing to do with the identity of God.

 

Ezekiel 28:14 – Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. v15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.  v16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. v17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

 

Lucifer was the most beautiful angel who was a covering cherub in the presence of God.  Ask yourself this.  If you at one time had an exalted position in heaven (third in rank) and was thrown out, would you have a little jealousy?  Could it develop into a rage of jealousy?

 

Satan now poses within Christendom as a made up spirit name not found in the Bible.  He wants to be god and he wants to be referred to as “holy”.  That way he is on par with God.  That way he is at least on par with Jesus.  Because the doctrine he invented places all three as co-equal and co-eternal.  That removes the fact that Lucifer was a created being.   Therefore, he poses as ‘god the holy spirit’ within the trinity doctrine.  This doctrine comes from the days of Rome, but had its place way before that in other pagan religions.  In fact, just two generations after Noah in Genesis, we have the Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz origins of a trinity god.   The trinity goes back to pagan times.  In fact, we are still in pagan times and it’s in the so-called Christian churches.  Take a look…..

 

Babylon trinity = Nimrod, Tammuz, Semiramis

Persian trinity = Ormazd, Mithra, Ahriman

Grecian trinity = Zeus, Apollo, Athena

Roman trinity = Jupiter, Mars, Venus

Papal trinity and the majority of Christianity today = God the Father,

god the son, god the holy spirit

 

Who captured control of the Christian church in the early days?  Who murdered in the name of Christ if you didn’t worship the same way they said you were to worship?  Rome.

 

And out of Imperial pagan Rome, Christianity was melded together with paganism by Constantine in the 300’s AD. And from there in years to follow, you had the formation of the Papacy.

 

The trinity doctrine minimizes the sacrifice made by God in giving up His only Son for the sins of the world.  A Son who was begotten sometime in eternity.  Through his Son-ship, this gives him his Father’s divine nature. But with the trinity doctrine, with the Father and Son relationship removed, you remove the divine nature of the Son.  Yet, they will cast all kinds of accusations like, “you don’t believe Jesus is God?”  Or, “you don’t believe in the deity of Christ.”  They don’t even know what they are accusing as they try and prop up their man made idol. The trinity doctrine minimizes the sacrifice that Jesus has made on our behalf. Because as a “god,” god cannot die.  This is what some teach in the churches today.  The result then is, he didn’t really die for our sins. In some religious circles, they teach that these “three persons” are just role playing.  They call it a metaphor.  They say it isn’t literal.  One chose to play this part or have this title, another this role with this title, and then the last one did the third.  This is a real mind-twisting debacle!

How Many Thrones?

 

Keep these verses in mind from the book of Revelation when it comes to the throne of God in Heaven.

 

Revelation 3:21 – To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

 

Revelation 22:1 – And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

 

Revelation 22:3 – And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.

 

Revelation 21:22 - And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

 

As you can see, there is not a throne for three, but only two are mentioned.  Believing a “mystery” ghost with the thought process of, “well, we will see when we get to heaven,” is not a plan when it contradicts the Bible.

Who Will We Be Worshipping?

 

Revelation 7:9-10 – After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; v10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

 

Revelation 20:6 – Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

 

Revelation 21 – v1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  v2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. v3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. v4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. v5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. v22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.  v23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

 

The Hour of His Judgment is Come.

 

Revelation 14:7 - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.            

 

Before we enter into this topic of judgment, I would like to remind you that God loved us first before we loved him or even knew him.  Perhaps this message will wake up those that don’t know Him and will turn from their evil tendencies and work toward a sinless life.  How much more would someone need to show their love and care other than to give of their own Son in the plan of redemption?

 

Jeremiah 31:3 - The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.

 

John 3:16-18 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  v17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  v18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

 

1 John 4:7-11, 16 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  v8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  v9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  v10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  v11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.  v16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

 

Romans 8:39 - Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Why would there need to be a judgment hour or any kind of judgment for that matter?  Because God has given us free will and the choice to do what we want, however sin has entered into the picture as a result. 

 

1 John 3:4-10 - v4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.  v5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.  v6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.  v7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.  v8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  v9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  v10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

 

It is Jesus, the Son of God that took our sins.  That is, if we accept him as our Saviour.

 

Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

How comforting it is to know, that we have a Saviour in Jesus Christ that is the one to take away the sins of the world.  He died so that you might have eternal life.  It is a free gift, one that you only have to make the decision to take.  It begins with repenting for your sins!

 

Matthew 4:17 – From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 

Acts 2:38 - Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

Within the second commandment of God to us is found a warning in Exodus 20:5 that lays out the penalty for serving false gods, that is passed down to our third and fourth generations.  But included here is the whole text of the whole commandment.

 

Exodus 20:4-6 - Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:  v5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;  v6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

 

What is a graven image?  These two words cover a broad area including carved objects out of wood or metal or stone, poured objects out of concrete which are found in the lawns of many people (Mary statutes), paintings or pictures portraying an image of what Christ supposedly looked like, stained glass windows in churches with images of anything being portrayed in the Bible just to name a few.  This covers idol worship, idolatry, crosses with or without a dead Jesus on them.  Relics and statues of supposed saints or even angelic beings is another thing we are not to approach.  Using prayer beads is an abomination because it is a mad made mechanism used to connect with God, but in reality it is connecting with a false god.  Don’t let anything stand between us, and the real one true God in worship or prayer.

 

Exodus 34:14 - For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

 

Deuteronomy 4:24 - For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

 

Joshua 24:20 - If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

 

Zephaniah 2:3 - Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.

 

Zephaniah 3:5 - The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

 

Galatians 5:10 - I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

 

Psalm 9:7 – But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

 

Psalm 37:28 - For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

 

Malachi 3:5 - And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

 

2 Corinthians 5:10 - For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

 

Romans 14:10 - … for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

 

Because Christ was the connection between God and us and was denied, judgment in the future has been placed within Christ.  This makes sense because he is to put away the works of the devil, which is sin in the world.  He is God’s literal begotten Son.

 

John 5 – v22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: v23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.  He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.  v24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.  v26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; v27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. v28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, v29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

 

And in Jesus’ own words in verse 30, “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”

 

We are fast approaching an awful hour. Judgment must happen because the end to wickedness must happen and this cannot continue forward into heaven.  Nothing but truth and righteousness will save us. We cannot honestly expect to have eternal life carrying forward with continuing to sin. Therefore the end of the 6000 years to wickedness (sin) is closing.  We have all had fair choices to make, the judgment to come will be just, fair and honest.  We must seek a full and free pardon of all our transgressions and errors through the atonement of Jesus Christ  now while he pleads his blood  before the

 

Father.  We must humble ourselves before the Almighty God, and obey and honor him by keeping his commandments.  What are your plans to gain victory over sin and start anew today?
