ISAIAH 6:3 Does Holy, Holy, Holy = TRINITY?


SPELLING EDITED

ISAIAH 6:3 Does Holy, Holy, Holy Equal “TRINITY”?

       Does Isaiah 6:3 teach us that Almighty God is a “TRINITY”? Some Christians that believe and teach the doctrine of the trinity use verses like Isaiah 6:3 where words are found in patterns of THREE to try and prove that Almighty God is THREE separate persons in ONE God who are CO EQUAL and CO ETERNAL with each other.

       Those who teach the doctrine of the trinity also use verses like the following, because ALL THREE, Almighty God the Father, Jesus the SON, and the Holy Spirit are all mentioned in the same verse.


2 Corinthians 14:13. 

       

       “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.”  

       

       Matthew 28:19.

 

“Go you, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

 

        Matthew 3:16,17.

 

    “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he (John the Baptist) saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

     17. And lo a VOICE from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

       But is this the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God?

                 Lets us begin this study in God's word by reading Isaiah 6:3 where YHWH or Yahweh, who is THE ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God of Hosts is being called the Holy one by a Seraphim angel.

 

       Isaiah 6:3.

 

     “And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

 

       But the question has been raised WHY is the Almighty God being called Holy THREE times?

       Perhaps the SIMPLEST answer is that this is what the prophet Isaiah HEARD when he was given this vision from God. I mean when I am SO thankful sometimes I say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, but I am speaking to only ONE person. To ME those who teach the doctrine of the trinity are reading INTO the text rather than simply letting Scripture interpret Scripture. Anyway, their argument goes something like this. The “TRINITY” is NOT simply Almighty God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit of Almighty God, but rather the TRUE definition of the “TRINITY” is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit being THREE SEPARATE PERSONS in ONE ALMIGHTY God where all THREE are CO EQUAL and CO ETERNAL.

       And then one of the ways they try and prove this claim is to take verses like Isaiah 6:3 where we find THREE of the SAME words, “Holy, Holy, Holy”, and teach that there is one Holy for God the Father, one Holy for God the Son, and one Holy for God the Holy Spirit. Then they find other places in the Bible where there is a pattern of THREE and claim that this proves that Almighty God is a “TRINITY”.

       Here are some other patterns of THREE that they use to try and support the doctrine of the trinity. The word “GODHEAD” is found exactly THREE times in the King James Version of the Bible, which some claim to mean that there are THREE persons in the God head. We will look into this in a moment to see that Almighty God the Father ALONE is THE GODHEAD, but for now let us examine where all three are spoken of in the SAME passage of Scripture.

       Please read Matthew 3:16,17 where we see the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove descending upon Jesus the SON of Almighty God being baptized in water by John the baptist and then we HEAR the VOICE of Almighty God the Father from Heaven.

 

       Matthew 3:16,17.

 

     “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and HE saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

     17. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

       

       Now I can only speak for myself, but the sermons that I have heard on the baptism of Jesus the preacher made it seem that EVERYONE that was there being baptized by John ALL SAW the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove and they ALL HEARD the VOICE of Almighty God the Father speaking from heaven.

       But the word of God simple says that HE, speaking of John only, SAW the Spirit descending like a dove and HEARD the voice from heaven saying to John this is my beloved Son. Nothing about a blinding light or a thundering voice from heaven that was seen and heard by EVERYONE, but rather it appears that ONLY John saw the Spirit and HEARD the VOICE, which he perceived was Almighty God the Father in heaven, since the voice said this is my SON.

       Here is the same account from John 1:29-41 where we see that Almighty God had spoken to John earlier by his Spirit that was with John and told John that the ONE who HE would see the SPIRIT descending upon and REMAINING would be the Lamb who would take away the sins of the world. In other words, John did NOT KNOW who Jesus was as in John had never MET Jesus in person as yet.

 

John 1:29-41.

 

“The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.

     30. This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. (Jesus was BEFORE John in two ways. One way is that Jesus was HIGHER or more important if you will than John and the other way that Jesus was BEFORE John is that God had his Son Jesus in mind before God ever created mankind. And of course one can INTERPRET the BEFORE here to mean that Jesus preexisted before John as a Spirit being along side his Father called the Word, but whatever INTERPRETATION is used then it must AGREE with the WHOLE word of God. And this verse also says that Jesus was a MAN who was PREFERRED before John.)

     31. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

     32. And John bare record, saying, I saw (Or beheld, contemplating, or more precisely John was PERCEIVING) the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

     33. And I knew him NOT: but he (Speaking of the eternal Spirit that was with John) that sent me to baptize with water, the SAME said unto meUpon whom YOU shall SEE (Or upon whom YOU shall be PERCEIVING) the Spirit descending, and REMAINING on him, the same is he which baptizes with the Holy Ghost(This was HOW John was to KNOW who would be the MESSIAH, the ONE whom he would baptize, that would be ANOINTED with the SPIRIT of Almighty God himself.)

     34. And I saw, and bare record that this is the SON OF God(NOT God the Son, but the SON OF Almighty God whom God was ANOINTING or was FILLING his SON with his self same eternal SPIRIT. In other words, Almighty God the Father Himself, being a SPIRIT, was descending upon his SON to empower his Son to do the works that he is about to SEND his SON to do. Now in this account we are NOT told of a VOICE from heaven, but those who have been filled with the Holy Spirit know the quite still voice within them that they PERCEIVE or know is the voice of Almighty God from heaven dwelling IN them.)

     35. Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

     36. And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the LAMB OF God!

     37. And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

     38. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What SEEK you? They said unto him, Rabbi, (Which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwell you?

     39. He said unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

     40. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

     41. He first finds his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the MESSIAH, which is, being interpreted, the CHRIST ”.

 

The word Christ also means the ANOINTED ONE. In other words, Jesus was FILLED WITH the eternal Spirit of his FATHER at this point in time when the eternal SPIRIT like a dove gently descended from heaven and lighted upon the Son of Almighty God and REMAINED. Please keep in mind that God's people were NOT looking for Almighty God HIMSELF to descend from heaven, but rather they were looking for a MAN with whom Almighty God was WITH. When we consider the WHOLE word of Almighty God we are only taught of TWO in whom we should BELIEVE and these TWO are:

      

       #1. We are to believe in THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER who IS the ETERNAL SPIRIT, and

 

       #2. We are to believe in the SON OF Almighty God the Father whom HIS God and Father ANOINTED to do the works that his Father SENT him to do. In other words, Almighty God FILLED his SON Jesus with his very own self-same eternal SPIRIT that DWELT IN His SON to EMPOWER His SON to OVER COME the enemy and live his life free from sin. Jesus overcame sin through the power of the Eternal Holy Spirit dwelling in him to become the spotless LAMB of Almighty God. Jesus is the workmanship of Almighty God who provided His own spotless Lamb as the perfect sacrifice to take away the sins of the entire world. And WHOSOEVER BELIEVES that Jesus is the SON of God will be cleansed of all their past sins so that Almighty God the Father can come and DWELL IN THEM in the same way that the Father DWELT IN His SON to do the works that He sent his Son to do.

 

One of the rules of INTERPRETING the Scriptures is that whatever interpretation that one concludes then that INTERPRETATION must AGREE with the REST of God's word. And if it does NOT, then that INTERPRETATION is INCORRECT and therefore must be rejected as FALSE TEACHING.

       In other words, IF SO BE that there were TRULY THREE separate persons in ONE ALMIGHTY God who are CO EQUAL and CO ETERNAL as the “DOCTRINE” of the trinity states, then the WHOLE word of Almighty God should AGREE and there should Not be even ONE single CONTRADICTION if so be this man made doctrine of the trinity is a sound Biblical truth.

       But yet I myself see no less that 37 CONTRADICTIONS against the doctrine of the trinity from the CLEAR, PLAIN, and SIMPLE word of Almighty God. Please consider the following 20 points that clearly teach us that Jesus was the SON OF Almighty God IN which the Father DWELT as opposed to Jesus the Son of MAN being THE ALMIGHTY God Himself. And for the other 17 points that contradict the doctrine of the Trinity please read the study “37 THINGS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!”

 

       #1. BOTH the Father and the SON each had a WILL of their OWN.

 

       Jesus had a WILL of his OWN that was different from the WILL of Almighty God, the Father and therefore Jesus needed to become OBEDIENT to his Father's WILL saying NOT MY will, but YOUR will be done. So then, how can Jesus be one and the same being as Almighty God the Father and have a DIFFERENT WILL that needed to be brought UNDER the will of his God and Father the one true and ONLY ALMIGHTY God?

 

       #2. Almighty God CANNOT be TEMPTED.

       

       And yet Jesus the SON OF Almighty God was TEMPTED with evil to sin against his God and Father and the word of God plainly states that Almighty God CANNOT be TEMPTED with evil. So then, since ALMIGHTY God himself CANNOT be tempted, then HOW can Jesus be the ONE true and ONLY Almighty God seeing that Jesus himself was tempted in all points like as we are tempted, but Almighty God himself CANNOT be tempted?

 

       #3. Almighty God is ALL KNOWING.

 

       Yet Jesus the SON OF Almighty God did NOT KNOW the day or the hour of his return, but yet Almighty God the Father does know that day and hour of his Son's return. HOW can this be IF what we have been TAUGHT is the truth that Jesus IS FULLY God and full flesh at the SAME time? I mean THINK this though for yourself! How can Almighty God KNOW and NOT KNOW the very SAME thing at the same time? You see IF Jesus is truly the one true and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, then Jesus would BE the FATHER at the SAME time that Jesus is the SON. And Jesus would therefore KNOW that day and the hour of his return, because Jesus would BE the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. However, the WORD of TRUTH plainly states that Jesus himself did NOT KNOW the day or the hour of his return when at the SAME time his God and Father DID KNOW the day and the hour of his Son's return. Therefore, the DOCTRINE of the trinity is simple not BIBLICAL because for Jesus to be EQUAL with his Father, then Jesus WOULD KNOW everything that his Father knows.

 

       #4. NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with Almighty God the Father.

 

       But yet Jesus COULD NOT do any mighty work of healing in his own home town, when the Bible says that NOTHING is impossible with Almighty God. Keep in mind that the word of God does not say that Jesus WOULD not heal these people, but rather that Jesus COULD NOT in that Jesus was NOT ABLE to do any mighty work of healing in his own home town.

 

       #5. The Almighty can do ALL things.

 

       But yet Jesus could do nothing of HIMSELF, but rather Almighty God, the Father, by his Holy Spirit DWELLING IN his SON Jesus did the works. So then, HOW can the DOCTRINE of the trinity be true when this man made doctrine teaches us that Jesus is EQUAL to the Father in every way where neither is less than or greater than the other? The truth of the matter is that the DOCTRINE of the trinity is NOT a SOUND BIBLICAL teaching! It needs to be rejected as a false teaching.

 

       #6. Almighty God is the ONE who does the ANOINTING.

 

       But Jesus was ANOINTED BY Almighty God, the Father, to preach the gospel and to heal the sick. Which raises the question, “Why did Jesus, the SON of Almighty God need to be anointed with the Holy Spirit OF Almighty God, IF Jesus was truly THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God in the flesh, being FULLY God and fully man and EQUAL with ALMIGHTY God in every way? Where neither is greater than of less than the other as the DOCTRINES of the trinity and the deity of Jesus teaches?” The truth of the matter is that Jesus is NOT the one true and ONLY Almighty God who alone is the FATHER according to the word of TRUTH which we read in 1 Corinthians 8:6.

 

       #7. Only Almighty God the Father is GOOD or goodness.

 

       Jesus said there is NONE good but the Father ONLY, when Jesus himself was addressed as good master or teacher. All through the Bible we clearly see that Jesus and Almighty God the Father are DIFFERENT and SEPARATE persons, so then why do some blindly accept the false teaching that Jesus IS FULLY God in the flesh and as being EQUAL with God in every way where neither is greater than or less than the other? It should be clear to even the casual reader of God's word that Jesus considered his Father to be GREATER than himself. So then, WHY do some Christians cling to the man made doctrine that falsely teaches that Jesus is EQUAL to Almighty God?

       Almighty God has always been GOOD and is goodness itself, which is NOT capable of being EVIL. But Jesus LEARNED to refuse the evil and to choose the good. Jesus BECAME obedient unto death. It was possible for Jesus to SIN, but yet Jesus OVER CAME the temptations of the enemy THROUGH the Father the ETERNAL SPIRIT that dwelt IN him.

 

       #8. Almighty God is ALL POWERFUL.

 

       But yet Jesus said the Father is GREATER than ALL in the SAME context where he says that he and the Father are ONE, which literally means that they AGREE as one and NOT that they are one and the SAME being. Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that IF this TRULY meant that Jesus and the Father are ONE and the SAME being, then the DOCTRINE of the trinity is still in error, because the doctrine of the trinity plainly states that Jesus is NOT the FATHER. Also IF the phrase in “John 1:1...the Word WAS God.” truly means that Jesus is GOD, in that, Jesus is THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, then this would ALSO make Jesus to BE the FATHER, and therefore would contradict the teaching of the doctrine of the trinity. However the WHOLE word of TRUTH clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus is NOT the FATHER.

 

       #9. ALMIGHTY God is the MOST HIGH God.

 

       But yet Jesus was, is and always will be UNDER or SUBJECT unto THE one true and ONLY Almighty God the FATHER. Often Christians TRY and explain away these CONTRADICTIONS between the man made teachings of the doctrine of the trinity and the clear plain and simple word of God by reasoning that Jesus was only under his Father while he was in the FLESH. However, IF this were true, then they would be CONTRADICTING their own belief, because they would be in fact saying that Jesus was NOT FULLY God in the FLESH and not fully EQUAL with Almighty God the Father. The truth of the matter is that no matter how you slice or dice it, the clear plain and simple word of truth cannot be reasoned away. Please be absolutely sure that you carefully and prayerfully read all the verses below that clearly teach us that Jesus is UNDER and SUBJECT to his God and Father even now while Jesus is seated on his Father's throne in heaven and even after the 1000 year reign of Jesus will still be UNDER and SUBJECT to his God and Father, the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. Therefore we must conclude that Jesus is NOT the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, because being ALL MIGHTY God means that there is NO God that is OVER you!

 

       #10. THE ALMIGHTY God is NOT SUBJECT to any other God or god.

 

       But yet Jesus plainly calls Almighty God, the Father, HIS GOD and HIS FATHER and God the Father HIMSELF says to his SON Jesus that he is the GOD of his Son Jesus saying EVEN YOUR God has anointed YOU in Hebrews 1:9. Again the very word “ALMIGHTY” means that there is NO God over or above the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the Father of ALL including being the Father and God of his only begotten SON Jesus.

 

       #11. Almighty God means that there is no God EQUAL to himself.

 

       Jesus NEVER once claims that he himself is the one true and only Almighty God. In fact neither Jesus nor the rest of God's word teaches us that Jesus is equal with Almighty God. The word teaches that Jesus is the Son of Almighty God. The word teaches us that Almighty God the Father is GREATER than Jesus. So why then do some still dogmatically cling and teach the doctrines of men that clearly CONTRADICT the clear, plain and simple word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible? Please read the study “Philippians 2:6 A TRINITARIAN DILEMMA!” which will give you the understanding that whatever form the WORD was BEFORE the WORD was MADE or BECAME a human being that the Word stripped himself from the nature that the Word was to BECOME or be made FULLY a human being for Almighty God the Father to DWELL IN.

 

       #12. Only the FATHER is called THE ALMIGHTY God.


Jesus rather plainly states 80 times that he is the Son of MAN. Even when Jesus is addressed as being the Son of God, Jesus immediately turns it around and calls himself the Son of MAN. Please read the study called “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!” where you will learn why the Bible speaks of Jesus being the Son of MAN twice as much as it refers to Jesus being the Son of God. In fact, there is only one time where the Bible clearly and plainly comes straight out and states that Jesus is God. And even in the context of this one time where Almighty God the Father calls his Son God it is clearly understood that Almighty God the Father is God OVER his Son Jesus being EXALTED to be a God at the Father's right hand to sit upon his Father's throne.


  #13. John 1:1 speaks of only TWO in the beginning and NOT THREE.

 

       What ever the Word was in the beginning before the Word BECAME or the word was MADE FLESH is not what is in question, but rather what is in question is what the word BECAME. The Bible teaches us that the Word BECAME FLESH and dwelt among us. So then, this HUMAN MAN that was CREATED or MADE by the Word of Almighty God the Father was GIVEN the name Jesus who dwelt among mankind some 2000 years ago. The Bible goes on to tell us that he, the Word that was with God stripped himself of ALL his glory and took upon himself the NATURE of man and became FLESH and blood just like you and I. Again I want to point out that if one dogmatically demands that since A=B, and B=C, then A=C to automatically mean that since the Word = Almighty God, and the Word = Jesus, then therefore Jesus = Almighty God, then you are also dogmatically saying that Jesus IS the FATHER and therefore you are contradicting your own teaching of the trinity. Please read the study “DID JESUS HAVE A BEGINNING?” 

 

       #14. Almighty God PRAYS to NO ONE, but rather is the ONE to whom we PRAY.

 

       Jesus prayed to the Father for himself and others showing that he depended upon Almighty God, his God and Father. Now IF Jesus were truly FULLY Almighty God in the flesh then he would have no need to pray to anyone, because Jesus himself would already be THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God and therefore Jesus would BE the FATHER. This is the doctrine called ONENESS of Modalism that teaches that Jesus IS the FATHER and Almighty God the Father IS the SON at the same time as being different manifestations of the same one true God.

 

       #15. The word of TRUTH clearly teaches us that we MUST believe in TWO, Almighty God the FATHER and his SON Jesus.

 

       But yet the man made “DOCTRINE” of the trinity is dogmatically taught that we as Christians must believe in THREE. You see, Jesus and Almighty God, the Father, are clearly shown in multiple verses of the Bible that they are TWO separate and distinct beings and that we as believers must believer and HONOR them in order to obtain eternal life in the world to come. So then, clearly the doctrine of oneness or Modalism is also a FALSE teaching as well.

 

       #16. The Almighty God the Father was the TEACHER of his SON Jesus.

 

       You see, Jesus increased in knowledge of God and in the grace of God. Jesus also increased in the Spirit and he learned obedience by the things he suffered. In other words, IF Jesus was truly and FULLY God, then would not this be THE one true and ONLY Almighty God OBEYING HIMSELF? WHY would an ALMIGHTY and ALL KNOWING God need to LEARN anything? Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ that these man made doctrines do NOT make any sense when they are examined in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Therefore they must be rejected as FALSE teachings.

 

       #17. ALMIGHTY means the HIGHEST that there can be.

 

       Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED by Almighty God the Father to the highest place there is without being OVER Almighty God the Father HIMSELF. And please keep in mind that Jesus was EXALTED to be a God under his God and Father only AFTER Jesus the SON learned obedience to his God and Father by his death on the cross. There can only be ONE true and ALMIGHTY God who has NO other God over him and the Bible calls this ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER. The Bible also clearly teaches us that Jesus is NOT the FATHER. Therefore Jesus can NOT be the one true and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who ALONE is the FATHER.

 

       #18. Almighty God is POSSESSOR of ALL.

 

       But yet Jesus was given EVERYTHING that he has including ETERNAL LIFE in himself EVEN AS the Almighty God, the Father, has life in himself. Or in the exact same way that Almighty God the Father has life in himself is the SAME eternal life that Almighty God the Father GAVE unto his SON Jesus when God resurrected his Son from the dead. Now please think about this for a moment, IF Jesus was truly ALMIGHTY God in the FLESH, being FULLY God and fully man at the SAME time as many of us have been TAUGHT, then WHY would THE one true and ONLY Almighty God NEED to be GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE, seeing and knowing that Almighty God is already an eternal and SELF EXISTING being. Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that even if you TRY to REASON this truth away by saying that Jesus stripped himself of his eternal life so that he could die for the sins of man. Then you are CONTRADICTING your own doctrine of the trinity which clearly states that Jesus is EQUAL with the Father in every way. The TRUTH of the matter is that Jesus and his God and Father are NOT equal. The Bible plainly teaches us that everything that Jesus is and has was GIVEN to him BY HIS God and Father, the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God.

 

       #19. Almighty God is commanded by NO ONE.

 

       But yet Jesus the SON OF Almighty God was COMMANDED of Almighty God HIS God and Father. Again why would one COMMAND their OWN SELF to do something? And if they were separate but EQUAL in every way as the DOCTRINE of the trinity states, then you also have to ask yourself, do two beings who are EQUAL in every way where neither is greater than or less than the other, COMMAND each other to do things. Absolutely NOT, no person being EQUAL with another would ever COMMAND them to do anything, but rather they would ASK them. Jesus ASKED his Father many times in prayer, but in comparison with Jesus ASKING his God and Father in prayer we see that Almighty God, the Father, gave his Son COMMANDMENTS that Jesus obeyed and kept in order to please his God and Father THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God.

 

       #20. ONLY the ETERNAL SPIRIT who IS the Father has always existed in and of himself.

 

       But yet Jesus the HUMAN MAN had a beginning. No matter HOW you look at it, if there is a Father and a Son, then at some point in TIME on a CERTAIN DAY the Son needed to be BORN or to come into existence. The word of TRUTH clearly teaches us that Almighty God the Father speaking forth His spoken WORD of PROPHECY says,

 

     “THIS DAY I have BEGOTTEN you.

       

       Please read Psalm 2:7, Acts 13:33, and Hebrews 1:5 which cleary teaching us the God's Son did not pre-exist in the eternity past. Therefore, the SON of Almighty God the Father did in fact have a BEGINNING. Even the spoken WORD of Almighty God had a beginning.

       The main point that I want you to see in this particular study is that while there may SEEM to be three. In truth in the light of the WHOLE word of God there are only TWO, Almighty God who IS the FATHER and his SON whom his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED to BECAME a God second in command to his Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who is God OVER his SON Jesus.

       But some may argue and say what about Matthew 28:19 where Jesus himself commands us to baptize and be baptized in the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Ghost?

 

                     Matthew 28:19.

     

     “Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

 

       Now, while some Christians may not be aware there are many UNBIASED Greek Bible scholars who testify to the truth that 1 John 5:7, which speaks of  a “trinity” in a sense saying and these three ARE ONE was ADDED to the original Greek text in order to support the doctrine of the Trinity. These same Greek scholars also agree and testify that the Trinity baptismal formula was ADDED as well. 

 

Matthew 28:19 ORIGINALLY read as follows.

 

     “Go and make disciples of all nations in my name.”

 

       In other words, these same Bible scholars who are learned men of the Greek language who read from the original manuscripts say that the phrase baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost was INSERTED or ADDED to the original Greek.

       Early Christians writers quoted the writers of the New Testament WITHOUT the phrase, “baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, which being a historical FACT gives us sound EVIDENCE that the word of TRUTH was TAMPERED with in order to provide support for the man made doctrine of the trinity that was being FORMED in the third through the fifth centuries by the Roman Catholic church.

 

       Here is what Eusebius wrote:

 

       Eusebius (260 – 339 CE) was a Roman Christian historian and is regarded as a well-learned Christian scholar. He became the Bishop of Caesarea in 314 CE. He QUOTES many verses in his works, and Matthew 28:19 is one of them. Seventeen different times in his works prior to Nicaea, Eusebius directly QUOTES Matthew 28:19 as being “Go and make disciples of all nations in my name” . There is absolutely NO mention of eh so called the baptism formula of the “TRINITY”.

 

       Now IF SO BE, that this so called baptismal formula of the trinity was TRUE, then it should be CONSISTENTLY seen, taught and USED throughout the entire New Testament and YET we see this INSERTED Trinitarian formula used only ONE time in the entire Bible in Matthew 28:19.

       The mere FACT that the very disciples of Jesus NEVER USED this so called baptismal formula of the trinity baptizing believers in the name of the Father, AND of the Son, AND of the Holy Spirit should raise a RED FLAG to those of you who are truly seeking the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

       The truth of the matter is that the disciples of Jesus either directly DISOBEYED the Lord's command or this was NEVER TRULY the Lord's command to baptize in the name of the father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, because the very apostles and disciples of Jesus baptized believers in the NAME of Jesus or the NAME of the Lord ONLY. Please consider the following verses.

 

       Acts 2:38 where Peter says to those he is preaching the GOSPEL to.

 

     “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the NAME OF Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

 

       Now WHY would Peter who was one of the very apostles of Jesus Christ directly DISOBEY his Lord's command or teaching to baptize new disciples who believed the gospel in the name of the father and of the Son, and of the holy Ghost?

       To me the answer is blatantly obvious, which is that Jesus NEVER neither gave this command nor taught that Almighty God was a trinity. In other words, it is just as these Greek Bible scholars say, that these words were INSERTED or ADDED to the original text.

        Let us continue with some more verses that directly CONTRADICT Matthew 28:19. Please read Acts 8:16, which actually teaches us of two different baptisms, the one baptism of being submerged in water in the NAME of Jesus that we read about in Acts 2:38 and the baptism of the Holy Spirit of being FILLED with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.

 

       Acts 8:12-19.

 

     “But when they BELIEVED Philip PREACHING the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the NAME of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. (It seems odd that in the entire New testament that the GOSPEL was about Jesus being the SON OF Almighty God the father whom Almighty God ANOINTED WITH his self same holy Spirit. All the disciples of Jesus clearly saw Jesus as being the SON of Almighty God being a HUMAN BEING which God Almighty God was WITH. The disciples saw Jesus as being THE CHRIST. Please read the study “JESUS THE CHRIST” for a deeper understanding of what the word “CHRIST” means.)

     13. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized (Speaking of water baptism in the NAME of Jesus, because Simon had not yet witnessed the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence or visual SIGN of speaking in other tongues and magnifying God), he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 

     14. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

     15. Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost(Or that they might receive the baptism being fully submerge to overflowing of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.)

     16. (For AS YET he (Or for as up till now the Holy Spirit has not yet been received by these new believers. For HE, the Holy Spirit) was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus.)

     17. Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

     18. And when Simon SAW that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given (Simon saw the SIGN or being baptized in the Holy Spirit, or more specifically Simon heard these believers speak in tongues and magnify God which is a SIGN that will follow true believers, Therefore), he offered them money, 

     19. Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.”

 

       Again, WHY would the very apostles and disciples of Jesus DIRECTLY DISOBEY the Lord's command or teaching to baptize believer in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit? The obvious answer is that they would NOT have disobeyed their Lord and savior IF SO BE this is what he truly taught them. Then we read in Acts 10:48 where Peter baptizes in the NAME of the Lord, which means master or teacher as well as owner. But this Greek word does not always refer to THE ALMIGHTY God who is THE LORD over his SON Jesus.

 

       Acts 10:34-48.

 

     “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

     35. But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him.

     36. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

     37. That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and BEGAN from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

     38. How God (Almighty God the Father) ANOINTED Jesus of Nazareth WITH the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good , and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; FOR (Or BECAUSE) God was WITH him(In that Almighty God the Father HIMSELF DWELT IN his SON Jesus as the one who was actually DOING the works of healing through the physical hands of his SON preaching and teaching the GOSPEL of the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who ALONE is the FATHER)

     39. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

     40. Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly;

     41. Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

     42. And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ORDAINED OF God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

     43. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his NAME whosoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.

     44. While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. (The TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus being the Christ or the one Almighty God the Father ANOINTED WITH his very own self same eternal Holy Spirit)

     45. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

     46. For (Or BECAUSE) they HEARD them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

     47. Can any man forbid WATER, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? (Now here, these believers actually received the baptism of the Holy Spirit first before they were baptized in WATER)

     48. And he COMMANDED them to be baptized in the NAME of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”

 

       And according to 1 Corinthians 8:6 to US as Christians there is ONE God who is the ALMIGHTY, which is the FATHER ALONE, and also to US there is ONE Lord who is our Lord Jesus THE CHRIST.

       

       1 Corinthians 8:6.

     

     “But to us there is but ONE Godthe Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; AND one Lord Jesus Christ, by (Or FOR THE SAKE OF) whom are all things, and we by (Or for the sake of) him.”

 

       So then, IF Matthew 28:19 truly read in the original manuscripts the way that it reads in SOME manuscripts today, then to ME there is a definite contradiction of those who teach that this verse dogmatically means that God is a trinity, because the very apostles and disciples of Jesus never OBEYED their Lord's command or teaching to baptize into the name o the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

                In other words, if so be this verse is translated correctly, then it is obvious that the disciples of Jesus UNDERSTOOD the MEANING of these words DIFFERENTLY that the Roman Catholic Church and many main stream churches teach today as God being a “TRINITY”.

       What I mean by this is that the LITERAL translation of this verse in many Bibles says for us to go and teach all nations baptizing them INTO the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

       Just ONE NAME. Now this may not seem to some of you to be big distinction on the surface, but when you consider the whole word of God, then you will see that Jesus came in the NAME of his God and Father who IS the ETERNAL Holy Spirit. You see the NAME of Jesus means the SALVATION OF the Almighty God or THE ALMIGHTY God SAVES. Jesus was sent as a REPRESENTATIVE of his God and Father to bear witness of the NAME of the one true and only Almighty God the Father. Jesus came to show us the Father, but Jesus was NOT himself the FATHER.

       You see, we as Christians are given authority to heal the sick and cast out devils in the NAME of Jesus, which means the SALVATION of YAHWEH, the ALMIGHTY God who ALONE is the FATHER that IS a SPIRIT who is ETERNAL.

       The ONLY WAY to the FATHER is through his SON Jesus and faith in the NAME of his SON Jesus. So if you do not have the SON, then you do NOT have the Father. The Bible clearly teaches us that we MUST believe in BOTH the father AND the SON and if we believe in the SON then the Father DWELLS IN US.

       The truth of the matter is there are NOT THREE persons that the Bible teaches us about, but rather the word of TRUTH only speaks of TWO, the Father and the SON. So then, ALL the verses like 2 Corinthians 13:14Matthew 28:19, Matthew 3:16,17 and Isaiah 6:3 which SEEM to be teaching THREE persons it is because the Holy Spirit is INTERPRETED by some to be a THIRD person of the so called “TRINITY”. 

       But in TRUTH the ETERNAL HOLY SPIRIT and Almighty God the Father who is an ETERNAL SPIRIT are ONE and the SELF SAME BEING. In other words, Almighty God the FATHER IS the HOLY SPIRIT and the HOLY SPIRIT IS Almighty God the FATHER.

       With this in mind let us now take a closer look at the true gospel of Jesus the CHRIST teaching us that we MUST believe in the doctrine or the teaching of CHRIST, which is translated in the LITERAL as being we must believe in the teaching of the ANOINTING. Please read 2 John 1:2-11, which clearly and plainly teaches us that we must believe in BOTH the Father AND his SON, but absolutely NO MENTION of believing in THREE or the so called “TRINITY”. The early church in the New Testament and the first and second century believed in only TWO. It was not until the third century that believers began to contemplate WHO was the Holy Spirit, that appeared to them as being a THIRD PERSON of the godhead.

 

       2 John 1:2-11.

 

     “For the TRUTH'S sake, which dwells in us (Please keep in mind that this was the beloved apostle of our Lord Jesus who wrote these words), and shall be with us for ever.

     3. Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, AND from the Lord Jesus CHRIST, the SON OF the Father, in truth and love.

     4. I rejoiced greatly that I found of your children walking in TRUTH, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

     5. And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

     6. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.

     7. For many DECEIVERS are entered into the world, who confess NOT that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an ANTI CHRIST. (Or is AGAINST the teaching that Jesus was the SON OF the Almighty God whom his God and Father ANOINTED WITH his very own self same eternal SPIRIT that DWELT IN his SON Jesus)

     8. Look to yourselves, that we lose NOT those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

     9. Whosoever transgresses, and abides NOT in the doctrine of CHRIST has NOT God. He that abides in the doctrine of CHRISThe has BOTH the Father and the Son.

     10. If there come ANY unto you, and bring NOT THIS DOCTRINE, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

     11. For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

 

       The disciples of Jesus only taught of TWO separate persons being Almighty God the Father who is a SPIRIT and his SON Jesus whom he ANOINTED or baptized with his very own self same eternal Spirit that the Writers of the New Testament often spoke of as the Holy Spirit OF Almighty God.

       But we know from the WHOLE word of God that Almighty God being a SPIRIT and the ETERNAL SPIRIT that DWELT IN Jesus are ONE and the SAME BEING. You see, Jesus himself spoke of the Holy Spirit that DWELT IN him as being the FATHER. Please read John 14:6-19, which clearly and plainly identifies the FATHER that DWELLS IN his SON Jesus as the one who does the works of healing, raising the dead, perceiving the thoughts of others, and even over coming sin. The Holy Spirit of the Father is called our HELPER who leads, guides and teaches us into all truth and strengthens us to overcome sin. When we lay hands on the sick and pray the prayer of faith in the NAME of Jesus it is the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father dwelling in us that does the healing and not we ourselves. Jesus said the same thing of HIMSELF.

     John 14:6-20.

 

     “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me(In other words if we want the Father then we MUST have the SON for without the SON no man has the Father. All through the New Testament we see only the TWO, the Father and the SON.)

     7. If you had known me, ye should have known my Father ALSO: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him.

     8. Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it suffice us.

     9. Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father? (Jesus was NOT claiming that he himself was THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER, but rather Jesus was teaching us that he is the EXPRESS IMAGE of his God and Father by showing us the WORKS that Almighty God the Father was DOING in or by the hands of his SON Jesus)

     10. Believe you 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 DWELLS IN ME , HE (The Holy SPIRIT OF Almighty God the FATHER) DOES the works.

     11. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the FATHER IN ME: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

     12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the WORKS that I do shall he DO ALSO; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (Jesus is going to the Father to present his shed blood that cleanses us from all sin so that we may be a clean vessel IN which Almighty God the Father may DWELL IN just as he DWELT IN his SON Jesus to do the works. Please read the study “THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER!”)

     13. And whatsoever you shall ask in my NAME, that will I do, THAT (Or in order that) the Father may be glorified IN the Son. (Again, just TWO are being spoken of even though there APPEARS or SEEMS to be a third person. This will all become crystal clear as you continue this study in God's word)

     14. If you shall ask any thing in my NAME, I will do it.

     15. If  you love me, keep my commandments.

     16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that HE may abide with you for ever; (Speaking of the Comforter being the Father himself as an EARNEST of his very own self same Holy Spirit. Know you not that you are the temple of GOD, and that the Holy Spirit of God DWELLS IN you?)

     17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees HIM not, neither knows HIM: but you know HIM; for HE dwells with you, and shall be IN you. (Speaking of the day of Pentecost and every day since that day where a believer RECEIVES the INDWELLING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father)

     18. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

     19. Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also.

     20. At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.”

 

       Jesus taught us that it was the Father's will that sent him that we must HONOR the SON EVEN as we HONOR the Father. Again we ONLY see the TWO, Almighty God the Father and his SON Jesus. Please read John 5:18-27.

       

       John 5:18-27.

     

     “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. (Jesus never once said that he was THE ALMIGHTY God, nor did Jesus ever say or try and make himself EQUAL with HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. You see this was just the Jews FALSELY ACCUSING Jesus of making himself equal with God because he called God his Father. These same Jews ALSO FALSELY ACCUSED Jesus of having a DEVIL, but we do NOT even remotely give heed to this false accusation against Jesus. In the following verse we see Jesus making a defense that he is NOT making himself equal with God as the Jews are accusing him of doing.)

     19. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The SON can do NOTHING OF HIMSELF, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise.

     20. For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself does (Through a vision or a dream or through the voice of the Holy Spirit of the Father within him the Son sees and simply obeys what he sees and hears the Father doing or saying through the voice of the Holy Spirit): and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

     21. For AS the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; EVEN SO the Son quickens whom he will.

     22. FOR (Or BECAUSE) the Father judges no man, but has COMMITTED all judgment unto the SON:

     23. That all men should honor the SON, EVEN AS they honor the FatherHe that honors NOT the SON honors NOT the Father which has SENT him.

     27. AND has GI (Again, we must believe in BOTH the Father AND the SON and if we do NOT honor the SON then we do NOT honor the Father)

     24. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, AND believes on him that SENT me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

     25. 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.

     26. For AS the Father has life in himself (Or in the SAME WAY that Almighty God the Father possesses IMMORTALITY); so has he GIVEN TO the Son to have life IN himself (Or Almighty God the Father who ALONE has always possessed IMMORTALITY has now HIGHLY EXALTED his SON Jesus to be a God to sit by his side and rule and has GIVEN his SON Jesus ETERNAL LIFE to BECOME an IMMORTAL being like HIS God and Father); VEN him authority to execute judgment ALSO, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN.”

 

       NOT because Jesus was FULLY THE ALMIGHTY God in the flesh, and NOT because Jesus was even the SON of Almighty God. But rather Almighty God HIGHLY EXALTED his SON Jesus BECAUSE he was the Son of MAN who OVER CAME the enemy to clear his Father's NAME that was being falsely accused of creating Lucifer as an evil rebellious being and it was not Lucifer's fault for trying to take over the very throne of Almighty God. Please read the study called “UNDERSTANDING WHY?” for a deeper understanding of the BIG picture of WHY God made Jesus to be a little LOWER or inferior than the angels only to later highly exalt him and us to be over and judge the angels? And WHY an ALL MIGHTY and MOST high God needed to keep his plan of salvation a SECRET? And WHY God binds Satan for a 1000 years only to let him LOOSE again to deceive the nations one last time? But for now let us get back to the study at hand.

       In the passage of Scripture above we learned that Almighty God GAVE his SON Jesus ETERNAL LIFE, which ALONE should be enough evidence that Jesus was NOT fully THE ALMIGHTY God in the flesh. I mean IF this were TRUE, then WHY would an ALMIGHTY God who has ALWAYS BEEN an IMMORTAL being need to be GIVEN immortality.

       Please read 1Timothy 6:16 where we clearly and plainly see that the ALMIGHTY SOVEREIGN God ALONE has IMMORTALITY and this ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God is INVISIBLE which NO man can ever SEE.

 

       1 Timothy 6:14-16.

 

     “That you KEEP this commandment (Or this principle or teaching) without spot, UNREBUKABLE, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

     15. Which in his times (Speaking of the first and second comings of Jesus) he shall show, who is the blessed and ONLY Potentate(Or Jesus came to SHOW us the FATHER who IS the ONLY ALMIGHTY SUPREME and SOVEREIGN God) the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

     16. Who ONLY has IMMORTALITY, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom NO man has seenNOR CAN SEE: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.”

 

       The Bible teaches us that Almighty God is INVISIBLE and that NO man has SEEN GOD. But men have SEEN Jesus who is the EXPRESS IMAGE OF the INVISIBLE God. The word of TRUTH teaches us that God is a SPIRIT, whom we just learned ONLY has IMMORTALITY. The Bible also teaches us that the SPIRIT is ETERNAL. So then, seeing that Almighty God the Father is a SPIRIT that ONLY is IMMORTAL or ETERNAL, then the only conclusion that I myself can draw is that the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who is an INVISIBLE SPIRIT IS the ETERNAL SPIRIT who DWELT IN the Son of MAN Jesus, the only begotten SON of Almighty God the FATHER. The Bible teaches us that the fullness OF the Godhead, which is the FATHER DWELT IN his Son Jesus.

       So to ME, I myself only see that the Bible teaches of TWO that we must believe in, in order to receive eternal life in the world to come.

       There are many patterns of THREE in the Bible, but these patterns of THREE do NOT demand that Almighty God is a “TRINITY” as some falsely teach.

       Noah had THREE sons (Genesis 6:10)

       Job has THREE daughters (Job 1:2)

       The Ark of the Covenant had THREE objects (Hebrews 9:4)

       David bowed down to Jonathan THREE times (1 Sam 20:25)

       Daniel prayed THREE times a day (Daniel 6:10-13)

       Jesus was tempted THREE times (Matthew 4:1-11)

       Paul prayed THREE times for the thorn (2 Cor 12:7,8)

       Moses took a THREE day journey.

       Jesus was in the heart of the earth for THREE full days and THREE full nights.

       THREE apostles of Jesus Peter, James, and John are often mentioned together.

       But yet none of these as well as many other references of THREE suggest, imply or teach us that God is a trinity.

       There are FAR MORE references to the number SEVEN, but no one tries to make god to be seven persons and one God.

       The TRUTH of the matter is that all the PAGAN religions that existed long before Christianity all had a TRIUNE god that they worshiped. Please read the study “THE ORIGIN OF THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY” which deals with the history of HOW and WHEN and from WHERE the man-made doctrine of the trinity came to be formed over many centuries under much opposition from other Christians who did NOT AGREE with this false pagan teaching being MIXED with Christianity.

      Thanks for reading, and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Below are some other verses that are used to try and support the doctrine of the trinity and the deity of Jesus. There may be other verses which you may be having trouble seeing any other way than what you were dogmatically taught over and over for so long. But I assure you that each and every verse used by those who teach the doctrine of the trinity does indeed have a different meaning that does NOT CONTRADICT any other part of God's word. If there is a verse that I have not listed please do not hesitate to write and let me know. Some verses are included in others studies and they may not appear as an individual study. If there is a verse or verses that you seem to struggle with only being able to see the doctrine of the Trinity when you read this verse, then please search out the truth by listening to the other side of the controversy. No one can arrive at the truth by hearing only ONE side of the controversy. I only present you with ALL the evidence that I myself have found and leave it to you to decide what you want to believe.

 

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.

16. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels, but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

Now, I, myself, do not find one verse in the entire Bible that prophesies of God the Son being sent down from heaven to incarnate himself as the Son of God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

More Scriptures that show the TRUE Jesus to be the fulfillment of the Scriptures of PROPHECY that you can look up on your own: Luk_24:6-7, Luk_9:22, Luk_18:31-33; Mat_16:21, Mat_17:22-23, Mat_20:18-19; Mar_8:31-32, Mar_9:31; Mar_10:33-34; 1Pe_1:10-11; Rev_19:10+++ Joh_16:4-5, Joh_16:16-17, Joh_17:11-13+++Luk_24:26-27, Luk_24:46, Luk_21:22; Mat_26:54, Mat_26:56; Joh_19:24-37; Act_3:18, Act_13:29-31, Act_13:33; 1Co_15:3-4

In the law: Gen_3:15, Gen_14:18, Gen_22:18, Gen_49:10; Lev_16:2-19; Num_21:8, Num_35:25; Deu_18:15-19; Joh_3:14, Joh_5:46; Act_3:22-24, Act_7:37; Heb_3:5, Heb_7:1, Heb_9:8, Heb_10:1

In the prophets: Luk_24:27; Act_10:43; Isa_7:14, Isa_9:6, Isa_11:1-10, Isa_28:16, Isa_40:1-11, Isa_42:1-4, Isa_49:1-8, Isa_50:2-6; Isa_52:13-15, Isa_53:1-12, Isa_61:1-3; Jer_23:5, Jer_33:14; Eze_17:22, Eze_34:23; Dan_2:44, Dan_7:13, Dan_9:24-27; Hos_1:7-11, Hos_3:5; Joe_2:28-32; Amo_9:11; Mic_5:1-4; Hag_2:7-9; Zec_6:12, Zec_9:9, Zec_11:8-13, Zec_12:10, Zec_13:7, Zec_14:4; Mal_3:1-3, Mal_4:2-6

And as I promised here is the list of the six main headings that list all the studies I have on this subject as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

I will also give this list of the six following headings again at the end of this study so you can stay focused on one study at a time.

 

>>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<

 

>>>IS THE DOCTRINE OF ONENESS BIBLICAL?<<<

 

>>>WHO OR WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?<<<

 

>>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<<

 

>>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

>>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<<

 

And for further studies on false teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ please read the studies listed throughout all the studies here at AMatterOfTruth.com and view the videos under the tab at the top called >>>FALSE TEACHINGS!<<< Under that heading, you will find the facts of what religious groups like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Islam teach about Jesus as compared to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, as in, the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And by the phrase “the WHOLE word of Almighty God”, I mean that all verses of Scripture must be correctly interpreted in the LIGHT of the whole word of God and compared with all other correctly interpreted verses of Scripture, as opposed to, interpreting a few verses that are taken OUT of context to teach what is not the truth of the WHOLE word of God. For you see, whenever any INTERPRETATION of a verse of Scripture CONTRADICTS any other verses of Scripture that are correctly interpreted in the light of the whole word of Almighty God then that INTERPRETATION is NOT the correct interpretation. So always interpret the hard “controversial” verses in the light of the SIMPLE CLEAR verses that do not need any interpretation to understand what they mean.

Plain and simple, if the gospel you have been taught does NOT follow the teachings of the WHOLE word of Almighty God under the NEW COVENANT written in the New Testament, then you have NOT been taught the TRUE BIBLICAL Jesus. Again, this does NOT necessarily mean that you are not saved, but rather, that you may not be walking with God in the FULL potential that our heavenly Father desires for you to walk. If you do not understand what I mean by this please be patient, this will all become clear as you read all the studies I give links to within this study. But you must have a sincere desire to know the truth and nothing but the truth.

So let us begin this study in God's word by me giving you a list of titles of Jesus during the days of his FLESH. Again, I will give this same list at the end of this study as well but for now, I would like you to simply read the list of titles of who Jesus was CALLED before Jesus ascended into heaven. There are actually FIVE AGES of Jesus and Jesus is something different in each of those five ages. I will also give the link to the study on the five ages of Jesus at the end of this study as well. But for now, please stay focused on reading THIS entire study first. Here are twelve titles of Jesus as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY.

 

Remember that Jesus is something DIFFERENT is each of the FIVE AGES of Jesus. So please read the study “THE FIVE AGES OF JESUS!”

 

#1. Jesus is the “I AM HE”!

 

Jesus said and if you do not believe I am he you will die in your sins. In other words, Jesus is the fulfillment of PROPHECY! What I mean by this is that Jesus is the one who was prophesied to come. Please read the following studies “PROPHECIES OF JESUS BEING THE MESSIAH!”, 365 PROPHECIES OF JESUS!”, “HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF JESUS!”, “WHO IS THE TRUE MESSIAH?”, and “JOHN 8:24 IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE I AM HE!”

 

#2. Jesus is the Son of MAN!

 

Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament Scriptures in the ORDER that the events of prophecy were prophesied. So this list of who Jesus is, according to the Bible itself is listed in the order that they were prophesied. In other words, Jesus did not come as the King of kings FIRST. But rather, Jesus was born of a VIRGIN first to suffer for the sins of the people. And then, Jesus will come again as the King of Israel. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!”

 

#3. Jesus is the CHRIST!

 

The word “Christ” does indeed mean the Messiah but before the Son of MAN, Jesus, actually became the Messiah by his death on the cross, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN. Many times in the Bible the word translated as “SENT” means COMMISSIONED and sending, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity meaning of being sent down from heaven. In other words, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN at his baptism by John the Baptist with His Holy Spirit and power to be able to accomplish the task that his God and Father commissioned or sent him out into the world to do. Please read the studies “JESUS THE CHRIST!” and “JESUS SAID WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?”

 

#4. Jesus is the SON OF God!

 

Jesus was prophesied to be called the Son of God but the Son of MAN was not called the Son of God until his baptism by John the Baptist. This was when Yahweh the Father announced the Son of MAN as being His Son in whom he is well pleased. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF GOD!”

 

#5. Jesus is our FELLOW SERVANT!

 

Jesus is our BROTHER. We will be JOINT-HEIRS with Jesus. Jesus is the FIRSTFRUITS unto God. Jesus is the CAPTAIN of our Salvation gone before us. Jesus is the FIRSTBORN of every creature in the image of God. And we are being conformed into the image of God’s dear Son. Jesus is the firstborn among MANY BRETHREN. Please read the study “JESUS OUR FELLOW SERVANT!”

 

#6. Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son of God!

 

To learn the TRUE meaning of “ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God” please read the study “JESUS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD!”

 

#7. Jesus is the FULNESS of the Godhead BODILY!

 

For the true SOUND Biblical meaning of Jesus being the fulness of the Godhead please read the study “JESUS THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD!”

 

#8. Jesus is GOD!

 

And according to the Bible ITSELF, Jesus is “A” God under and subject TO HIS God and Father who ALONE is the ONLY TRUE God. Please BEGIN with the study “37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!” And under four numbers I will list four things that Jesus is NOT.

 

#9. Jesus is NOT the FATHER!

 

Please read ALL the studies under the heading >>>IS THE ONENESS DOCTRINE BIBLICAL?<<<

 

#10. Jesus is NOT Almighty God Himself!

 

But rather Jesus is the IMAGE OF the invisible God. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?”

 

#11. Jesus is NOT Yahweh Himself!

 

Jesus came out from God but that does not mean that Jesus is Yahweh Himself. Please read the study “IS JESUS YAHWEH?”

 

#12. Jesus is NOT God the Son, the second person of the Godhead Trinity God who always existed without beginning in eternity past!

 

Please read ALL the studies listed under the heading >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<
