What does this statement mean: God was MANIFEST in the
Now the mainstream church denominations will tell us
that it means that Almighty God himself BECAME flesh and dwelt among
men as the man named Jesus. In other words, it means Jesus IS
Almighty God according to many of the mainstream denominational
churches, whether they teach the doctrine of the trinity or whether
they teach the doctrine of oneness, sometimes known as modalism.
Both of these mainstream doctrines DOGMATICALLY teach and DEMAND that
this statement found in 1 Timothy 3:16, which says, God was MANIFEST
in the FLESH, means without fail that Jesus IS God.
without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was
in the FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto
the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
Well to ME, to say that Jesus IS GOD, is to say that
Jesus IS THE Almighty God. And to ME, to say that Jesus IS THE ONE
TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God is to say that Jesus IS the FATHER and the
DOCTRINE of the trinity clearly and plainly states that Jesus is NOT
the FATHER and that Almighty God the FATHER is NOT the
SON Jesus, or in other words, Almighty God is NOT
Now WHY do I say, to ME, that if at any time Jesus is
said to be GOD, that all I hear is that Jesus IS the FATHER? Well to
ME, when I hear those that teach the doctrine of the trinity
dogmatically demand that Jesus IS GOD, then in MY mind I hear them
saying that Jesus is the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. Then to ME,
IF this is truly what they are demanding when those who teach the
doctrine of the trinity say that Jesus IS GOD, then to ME, this would
be the SAME as saying that Jesus IS the FATHER? But yet
to ME, I know that the DOCTRINE of the trinity plainly and clearly
states that Jesus is NOT the FATHER and that God the Father is NOT
the SON Jesus. Can you not see the CONTRADICTION that I have in my
OWN mind concerning this DOCTRINE of the trinity? It just does NOT
compute with ME in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God. So again WHY
to a BELIEVE and teach what I do?
let me begin to explain why I myself see these man made doctrines as
being FALSE teachings by using a method used by those who teach the
doctrine of the trinity and the doctrine of oneness to support their
theology. They begin by saying if A=B, and B=C, then A=C, and
therefore C=A, which is MATHMATICALLY
correct. But then they try to apply this mathematical
to the word of God and say since John 1:1 tells us that the Word
IS God and
then John 1:14 teaches us that the word was made flesh, which we all
know is referring to Jesus, therefore the Word
Then after making this connection they dogmatically demand that God
and or rather that Jesus IS God.
In other words:
Jesus IS GOD and God IS Jesus, that is to say, ACCORDING to this
line of REASONING.
Now this all sounds logical to those who teach the
doctrine of the trinity and to those who teach the doctrine of
oneness and therefore MUST be the TRUTH, because it is TRUE in
mathematics. But can a MATHEMATICAL formula be applied
to the word of God and ALWAYS still produce a CORRECT answer?
You see, when I look at this line of reasoning and the
dogmatic statement that Jesus IS GOD, then I see that those who teach
these doctrines are saying in fact that Jesus IS THE ONE TRUE and
ONLY ALMIGHTY God, because the doctrine of the trinity states that
Jesus and Almighty God the Father are EQUAL in every
way, where neither is greater than nor less than the other, and the
doctrine of oneness simply teaches that Jesus IS Almighty God the
Father completely ignoring all the verses that clearly teach us that
Jesus and Almighty God the Father are two distinct individuals.
My point is this, whenever those that teach the doctrine
of the trinity say that Jesus IS GOD all I hear in my OWN mind is
that Jesus IS ALMIGHTY God, because HOW can Jesus be
said to be God with a CAPITAL "G" be anything other than
than the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God.
BUT then, when I read the scriptures, I MYSELF, only see
ALMIGHTY God as being the FATHER. Therefore to ME, when
I hear those that teach the doctrine of the trinity dogmatically say
that Jesus IS GOD, then all I hear is that Jesus IS ALMIGHTY God the
FATHER. In others words, when those that teach the
doctrine of the trinity make the CLAIM and dogmatically demand that
Jesus IS GOD, then what I myself am hearing is that Jesus IS the
FATHER. But yet the doctrine of the trinity plainly
states that Jesus is NOT the FATHER.
So then, HOW can those who teach the DOCTRINE of the
trinity HONESTLY say that the word of God plainly teaches that Jesus
IS God, without making Jesus to be ALMIGHTY God,
who to ME, is without question the FATHER? So
then, my question to those that believe and teach this doctrine of
the trinity is "HOW can YOU, speaking to those of you who
believe and teach the DOCTRINE of the trinity HONESTLY teach that
Jesus is NOT the FATHER, when to ME, you just got through demanding
that Jesus IS GOD and therefore mean by this that Jesus IS the
Well then, IS Jesus God? And then if you say and demand
that Jesus IS God, then are you saying and demanding that Jesus IS
the ALMIGHTY God? Define what you mean, when you are saying that
Jesus IS God, 100% God and 100% man at the SAME time. Are you saying
that Jesus is 100% ALMIGHTY God? Or are you saying that Jesus is only
"a god", who is under and subject to the ONE TRUE and ONLY
ALMIGHTY God the FATHER? What do you mean when you
dogmatically teach that Jesus IS GOD?
Now if you say that Jesus IS 100% God, as in, Jesus IS
100% ALMIGHTY God, then to ME, you are saying that Jesus IS 100% the
FATHER, because to ME, the word of TRUTH clearly
teaches us that ONLY Almighty God IS the FATHER.
Therefore, to ME, the DOCTRINE of the trinity is a FALSE teaching and
should be rejected.
Please CONSIDER the word of TRUTH, which to ME, clearly
and plainly teaches us that the ONE TRUE God is ALMIGHTY, and that
Almighty God IS the FATHER. Let us begin this study in
God's word by reading Ephesians 4:3-6 which teaches us that Jews and
Gentiles alike have but ONE Father who is the Father of us all.
to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4. There is one body,(even
though some of you my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus
Christ may not agree with what I believe the word of TRUTH teaches)
and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling;
5. One Lord, one faith, one
God and FATHER of all,
who is ABOVE
ALL, and through all, and IN
So then, according to this verse of scripture their is
but ONE GOD, who IS the FATHER of all and this ONE God,
who IS the FATHER is ABOVE ALL, which to ME, means that
the ONE God, who IS the FATHER is THE ALMIGHTY or the THE HIGHEST God
over ALL. In other words, this ONE God IS Almighty God
the FATHER. Now please read Malachi 2:10, which again
teaches us that we have but ONE God and ONE Father.
"Have we not all ONE
Has not ONE
CREATED us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his
brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?"
In this verse we learn that this ONE God, who IS the
FATHER is the one who CREATED us. Then in 1 Corinthians 8:4-6 we read
where the ONE God, who we now know IS the FATHER, is the ONLY God,
because we are plainly told that the is NONE OTHER God but ONE. Then
further down we see also that there is ONE Lord who is Jesus the
concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in
sacrifice unto idols, WE
KNOW that an
idol is nothing in the world, and that
there is NONE OTHER God but ONE.
5. For though there be that
are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods
many, and lords many,)
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."
Now those who teach the ONENESS doctrine just come right
out and plainly say that Jesus IS the FATHER. But to ME, I clearly
see a DISTICNTION between Almighty God, the FATHER and his SON Jesus
the CHRIST. For example, here is verse 6 we see the conjunction AND
, which to ME, is CLEARLY showing us that the ONE God
THE FATHER is DEFINITELY NOT the ONE Lord,
who IS Jesus the CHRIST.
To Me, BOTH the doctrine of the trinity AND the doctrine
of oneness are FALSE doctrines. But let us continue in this study of
God word and let the word of TRUTH teach us whether or not Jesus IS
GOD, which again to ME, would make Jesus to be ALMIGHTY God, which
would then consequently make Jesus to be the FATHER.
Please read Romans 15:5-7 which teaches us that Almighty God IS the
FATHER OF our
"Now the God of patience
and consolation grant you to
be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
you may with ONE mind and ONE mouth GLORIFY GOD,
Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ.
RECEIVE you one another,
as Christ also received us to the glory of God."
Now be assured that I RECEIVE my dear brothers and
sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, who believe and teach the doctrine
of the trinity, and I RECEIVE my dear brothers and sister in our Lord
Jesus Christ who teach the doctrine of oneness. But sometime I have
my DOUBTS that YOU receive me as your brother in our Lord Jesus
Christ, simply because I will not accept these MAN made doctrines,
which to ME, clearly contradict the WHOLE word of Almighty God the
All I am asking is that you HEAR me out and at least
CONSIDER what I have to say. Proverbs 18:12,13 teaches us that a man
who ANSWERS a matter BEFORE he HEARS it that it is folly and a shame
"Before destruction the
heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility.
that ANSWERS a matter BEFORE he HEARS it, it is folly and shame unto
Please bear with me a little longer and I will show you
PLAINLY from the scriptures that the ALMIGHTY God is NOT
Jesus, who to ME, is CLEARLY the SON of Almighty God.
And I will plainly show you from the scriptures that
Almighty God the Father and Jesus his SON are TWO DISTINCT PERSONS
and NOT just two different MANIFESTATIONS of the ONE TRUE and ONLY
ALMIGHTY God who is the FATHER.
Let's begin by reading Revelation 1:4-8, where the
apostle John is introducing to us, so to speak, Almighty God the
Father AND his Son our Lord Jesus Christ.
"John to the seven
churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, FROM

was, and which
is to come;
AND from the seven Spirits which are before HIS
(speaking of HIM which
is to come);

that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his

6. And (he,
Jesus) has made
us kings and priests unto God
him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
7. Behold, he (Jesus)
comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they
also which pierced him: and all kindred of the earth shall wail
because of him. Even so, Amen.
am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord,
which is to
Now some read this verse 8 here and make the CLAIM that
this verse is speaking of JESUS as being THE ALMIGHTY, the Alpha and
the Omega, the beginning and the end which is, and which was, and
which is to come. And I admit that WITHOUT reading the ENTIRE CONTEXT
this verse when viewed ALONE and apart from the WHOLE word of God
does SEEM to be Jesus speaking and even is some Bible the text is in
red letters which makes it even more confusing. But just bear with me
for a little longer and you will CLEARLY see that verse 8 is Almighty
God the FATHER who is speaking and NOT Jesus his SON as some FALSELY
Again, when we CONSIDER the CONTEXT we clearly see that
John plainly distinguishes between the greetings that are FROM HIM
which is, and which was, and which is to
come as being a JOINT greeting by using the conjunction AND
from JESUS CHRIST, who then is IDENTIFIED as being the faithful
WITNESS, the first begotten from the dead, and the PRINCE of the
kings of the earth.
Well you may not see what I am saying as yet, but if you
keep reading in the book of Revelation it will become CLEAR to you
that the ONE who SITS upon the THRONE is ALMIGHTY God the Father OF
Jesus Christ our Lord. Please read Revelation 4:1-11, which teaches
us again that the ONE who SITS upon the THRONE, the HIM which is, and
which was, and which is to come IS THE ALMIGHTY God, who we KNOW is
the FATHER OF Jesus our Lord.
"After this I looked,
and, behold, a door was opened in
(now please keep in mind that what we are being shown here is IN
Heaven AFTER Jesus has ALREADY been slain on the cross and is now
ascended to Heaven to be WITH his Father to sit one his Father's
throne at his right side):
and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking
with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show you things which
must be hereafter.
2. And immediately I (John)
was in the spirit: and, behold, a THRONE was set IN heaven, and ONE
SAT on the THRONE.
3. And HE that
SAT was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was
a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an
4. And round about the throne
were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty
elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads
crowns of gold.
5. And out of the throne
proceeded lightnings and thundering and voices: and there were seven
lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits
6. And before the throne
there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in
the midst of the throne,
and round about
were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
7. And the first beast was
like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast
had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
8. And the four beasts had
each of them six wings about him;
and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night,
and is to
is the very SAME choice of words used in the greeting FROM HIM, which
is, and which was, and which is to come...AND
from Jesus Christ...that we just read in Revelation 1:4-8 where I
told you that the HIM is the one who is speaking in verse 8 saying
that he is THE ALMIGHTY)
9. And when those beasts give
glory and honor and thanks to
that SAT on
for ever and ever,
10. The four and twenty
elders fall down before HIM
that SAT on
and worship HIM
that lives for
ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11. You are worthy, O
Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for YOU (speaking
of the ONE who SAT upon the TRHONE, YOU)
have CREATED all things, and for your pleasure they are and were
Now here in verse 8 we clearly and plainly see that it
is the ONE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that SITS upon the THRONE in heaven. And
as we have already learned there is no doubt the Almighty God IS the
FATHER OF our Lord Jesus Christ. Likewise we have clearly seen that
John plainly distinguishes HIM that sits on the THRONE from his Son
Jesus by placing the conjunction AND between the two
when he gave greetings to the seven churches in Asia.
But even with all this there are some who may still not
be convinced that Jesus is NOT the ALMIGHTY God who
SITS upon the THRONE.
If you are still not convinced please read Revelation
5:1-8, which will prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that there are
TWO distinct individuals IN heaven and NOT just the ONE TRUE and ONLY
ALMIGHTY God who SITS on the THRONE, who some teach has merely
MANIFESTED HIMSELF to a DIFFERENT MANIFESTATION on the earth as
Jesus. In other words, KEEP reading and you will CLEARLY see that the
ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who sits upon the THRONE is NOT
Jesus the Christ, who was the LAMB that was slain from before the
foundation of the world.
"And I saw in
the right hand of HIM that SAT on the THRONE
a book written
within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
2. And I saw a strong angel
proclaiming with a loud voice, WHO
is worthy to open the book,
and to loose the seals thereof?
3. And no MAN in heaven, nor
in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither
to look thereon.
4. And I wept much, because
no MAN was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look
5. And one of the elders said
unto me, Weep
not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has
prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6. And I beheld, and, lo, in
the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the
midst of the elders, stood a LAMB as it had been slain,
having even horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.
7. And HE
of Jesus the CHRIST, the LAMB of God, who was slain from before the
foundation of the world)
came and took
the book out of the right hand of HIM
of the ONE TRUE and ONLY LORD GOD ALMIGHTY)
SAT upon the THRONE."
Now to ME, when I read the CLEAR plain an SIMPLE word of
Almighty God, then I simply cannot accept these FALSE teachings of
MAN that make the CLAIM and dogmatically demand that we believe that
Jesus IS GOD, as in, that Jesus is THE ALMIGHTY God, nor can I accept
the FALSE teaching that Jesus IS the FATHER.
Now what I can accept and BELIEVE is that Jesus CAME
FROM the Almighty God the Father in that God sent his WORD and when
the word of God was spoken by the angel Gabriel to the virgin Mary
and Mary RECEIVED this word of God by saying, be it done according to
your word, then the word of God BECAME or was MADE flesh and this SON
of the HIGHEST that was born as a MAN to Mary was given the name
Jesus, which means the SALVATION of Yehweh or Yehweh saves, where
Yehweh IS the ONLY ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY God and Jesus is his SON.
And I can also accept and BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son
of MAN, whom Almighty God HIGHLY EXALTED to be "A" god,
with a LOWER case "g", meaning that Jesus is and always
will be SUBJECT unto HIS GOD and FATHER, the ONE TRUE and ONLY
ALMIGHTY and WISE God who is ABOVE ALL including his SON Jesus, whom
he HIMSELF has HIGHYLY EXALTED to sit upon his own right hand and
rule and reign over the children of men for 1000 years. For a deeper
understanding on what I believe and WHY I believe it as the TRUTH of
the WHOLE word of Almighty God please read the study "OUR GOD IS
ONE" which will direct you to all the studies that I have
concerning WHO is Jesus. But for now let us get back to the question
at hand, which is "What does the word of God mean when it says,
God was MANIFEST in the FLESH?"
The word that is TRANSLATED as "MANIFEST" or
"MANIFESTED" is the Greek word "PHANEROO",
Strong's number (5319), and means:
To REVEAL, to MAKE KNOWN, to SHOW, to APPEAR, to
DISCLOSE, to be DISCLOSED, to be DISPLAYED, to be REVEALED.
And it is translated as MADE MANIFEST, MANIFEST,
MANIFESTED, MAKE MANIFEST, MANIFESTED FORTH, MANIFESTLY
DECLEARED, SHOWED, SHOW, and APPEAR.
Now to ME, if the translators where to have used the
translation of MANIFESTLT DECLARED in 1 Timothy 3:16, then this verse
would have never been used to try and prove that Jesus IS GOD. So
then, let us read this verse with this translation of the Greek word
"PHANEROO" being manifestly DECLARED rather than just the
word manifest and keep in mind that this Greek word that is found in
the original text mean both manifest and manifestly DECLEARED.
Here is 1 Timothy 3:16 with another meaning of this SAME
Greek word that is TRANSLATED as manifest in the King James Version
of the Bible, but here will will use the definition manifestly
"And without controversy
great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifestly
in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto
the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
this definition of manifestly DECLARED clearly harmonizes with what
Jesus taught us when he said I SHOW you the Father. Let us read those
passages of scripture to refresh your memory and to see exactly what
they are truly saying. Please read John 14:5-11, which to ME, is
teaching us that when we see the WORKS that Jesus did, we are in all
actuality seeing the true nature and working of the INVISIBLE God,
Almighty God the Father.
"Thomas said unto him,
Lord, we know not whither you go; and how can we know the way?
6. Jesus said unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father,
but by me.
7. If you had KNOWN me, you
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 suffices 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 (or has
KNOWN and UNDERSTOOD me) has SEEN
(or has KNOWN and UNDERSTOOD the true nature of) the
Father; and how say you then, SHOW us the Father?
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 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."
Now some will argue and say that Jesus is teaching that
HE HIMSELF IS the FATHER because he says that if you have SEEN him,
THEN you have SEEN the Father.
But IF this line of REASONING is true, then why would
Jesus go on to say in John 16:25-28 that he will SHOW us PLAINLY the
FATHER? Think this through for yourself, IF Jesus was truly saying
that he himself was the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER,
when he said if you have SEEN me then you have SEEN the FATHER, then
WHU would he tell his disciples later on in this SAME CONTEXT of John
chapters 13-17 that he would SHOW them the FATHER PLAINLY.
"These things have I
spoken unto you in proverbs: but the TIME COMES, when I shall no more
speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall SHOW you PLAINLY of the
26. At THAT DAY you shall ask
in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for
27. For the Father HIMSELF
loves you, because you have loved ME, and have BELIEVED that I
came OUT from God.
28. I came FORTH FROM the
Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go
to the Father."
I want to Go back to 1 Timothy and have you read the rest of what
this disciple of Jesus has to say about SHOW us the FATHER and WHO
the Father IS according to the WHOLE word of God. Please read 1
Timothy 6:13-16, which CLEARLY teaches us that that Jesus and the
Father are two distinct individuals and that Jesus is NOT the ONE
TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER.
"I give YOU CHARGE in
the sight of GOD, who quickens all things, AND
before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a
14. That you KEEP THIS
COMMANDMENT without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our
Lord Jesus Christ:
15, Which in HIS TIMES he
shall SHOW, WHO is the blessed and ONLY Potentate (or
WHO is the ONLY ALL POWERFUL or WHO IS THE ONLY ALMIGHTY),
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
SEEN, NOR CAN SEE: to WHOM be honor and power everlasting. Amen."
Now some look right past all the CLEAR teaching in these
verses and DEMAND that verse 15 is speaking of JESUS, because Jesus
is called the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.
But to ME, I clearly see verse 16 as CLARIFYING EXACTLY
WHO is the ONLY Potentate, or WHO the ONLY ALMIGHTY is as being the
one WHOM no man has SEEN, NOR can EVER SEE, because man in the flesh
cannot SEE that which is INVISIBLE, unless of course God OPENS their
eyes to see into the spiritual world like as in a VISION.
Again IF Paul were truly saying in 1 Timothy 3:16 that
Almighty God HIMSELF was TRANSFORMED into a human form to BECOME 100%
ALMIGHTY God in the FLESH rather than meaning by the word MANIFEST
that he was simply saying that Almighty God the Father was manifestly
DECLARED by the MAN Jesus, as in, Jesus SHOWED us PLAINLY the nature
and character of his God and Father Almighty God BY the WORKS that
Jesus did THROUGH the Holy Spirit of Almighty God that DWELLED IN
him, then WHY would Paul open his letter to the Timothy and the
church by saying that the ONLY WISE God the King eternal was
"Now UNTO the King
eternal, immortal, INVISIBLE, the ONLY WISE God, be honor and glory
for ever and ever. Amen "
Now this SIMPLE question set before you who teach these
FALSE doctrine of the trinity and oneness is:
IS Jesus INVISIBLE?
The TRUTH of the matter is that since the Jesus was
CLEARLY SEEN of MEN, then he is NOT the ONLY WISE ALMIGHTY God whom
NO MAN can EVER SEE.
The TRUTH of the matter is that when the disciple saw
the WORKS of Jesus, then they were SEEING and UNDERSTANDING the true
NATURE and CHARACTER of the ONE and ONLY TRUE ALMIGHTY God the
When we compare scripture with scripture and look at
other places where this word MANIFEST is used it becomes CLEAR that
Almighty God the Father did not literally TRANSFORM HIMSELF 100% into
a human form as some falsely teach. Certainly Almighty God is capable
of doing this, because he is Almighty and nothing is impossible.
So then, with this same line of thought that nothing is
impossible with God, why then is it not possible for God to ELECT or
CHOSE to by his spoken word to cause the virgin Mary to be conceived
in her womb with a specially conceived unique Son that would be
brought into the world and taught by God's Holy Spirit morning after
morning as Isaiah teaches us, until he grew in stature and in favor
with God, and then be baptized with the Holy Spirit of God to do the
WORKS that God showed him through the power of the ANOINTING of the
Holy Spirit that DWELLED IN him and strengthened him to die as a MAN
for our sins and thereby become our Lord and savior?
WHY must these mainline churches insist that it be
dogmatically taught that the death of a MAN could never ATONE for the
sins of mankind that was supposedly brought upon all of mankind
because of a mere MAN.
Why is it dogmatically taught that it MUST be Almighty
God HIMSELF that died on that cross in the form of a man in order for
the sacrifice to be sufficient to forgive mankind of their sins
because of the one MAN Adam's sin?
Why could Jesus not be a MAN who was ANOINTED with the
Holy Spirit of Almighty God that went about doing good and healing
all who were oppressed of the devil like Acts 10:38 PLAINLY and
CLEARLY teaches us with SIMPLE easy to understand teaching.
of Almighty God the Father) ANOINTED

and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were
oppressed of the devil;(HOW?
How did Jesus being a MAN do all these mighty works of healing?)

God was WITH
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the
Lord, that Almighty God the Father was WITH his SON Jesus THROUGH the
INDWELLING of the Holy Spirit, and that this is HOW Jesus did the
mighty works of healing that he did in order to SHOW us the ONE TRUE
and ONLY ALMIGHTY God?
To ME, this is far more easier to believe that these
complicated man made doctrines of the trinity and oneness.
Now I believe that Jesus was ONE with God as in Jesus
laid aside his OWN will and obey the leading of the Holy Spirit that
DWELL within him. Jesus and the Father AGREED as ONE, and if you
follow through and STUDY to word of God you will clearly see that
this is exactly what Jesus meant when he said "I and my Father
are ONE" in John 10:30. Please read this verse in the CONTEXT of
where it is found and then COMPARE scripture WITH scripture rather
than comparing scripture with the teachings and traditions of men.
Here is John 10:30 in it's context, simply read the previous verse.
"29. My Father,
which gave them me, is GREATER than ALL; and no man is
able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30. I and my Father are ONE."
Now WHY would Jesus say here in this previous verse that
his Father, which is clearly ALMIGHTY God, is GREATER than he was, IF
Jesus TRULY meant that he and Almighty God his FATHER were ONE and
the SAME being?
Well some of you who want to cling to the false doctrine
of the trinity and the false doctrine of oneness may be thinking,
"Jesus was NOT talking about HIMSELF here when he said his
Father was GREATER than ALL, but was rather referring to all as in
mankind and the devils." And you are partially correct.
However when we compare scripture with scripture and
read John 14:28 you will see without a doubt that Jesus considered
himself to be UNDER and SUBJECT to his God and Father, when he
CLEARLY and PLAINLY says the Father is GREATER than I.
have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.
If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
Father: for my
Father is GREATER than I."
Now those who teach the doctrine of the trinity, HOW can
you even begin to use the words of Jesus when he said "I and my
FATHER are ONE" and dogmatically demand that Jesus was saying
that he himself IS the FATHER, when the DOCTRINE of the trinity
plainly states that Jesus is NOT the FATHER and that the Almighty God
the Father is NOT the SON.
To ME, EVERY scripture that those who teach the DOCTRINE
of the trinity try and use to PROVE that Jesus IS GOD, when you THINK
it through for YOURSELF you are in reality making Jesus to be the
FATHER, and therefore DISPROVE the DOCTRINE of the trinity which
plainly states that Jesus is NOT the Father. Perhaps this is why the
doctrine of ONENESS was created?
My point is this, NEITHER of these DOCTRINES of MAN line
up with the WHOLE word of God, so WHY cling to them and dogmatically
demand other to believe these false teaching out of fear of losing
their salvation if they do not?
The TRUTH of the matter is that these false doctrine are
causing some to walk away of the word of TRUTH altogether. I have
read testimonies of Christians who have converted to ISLAM just
because of the doctrine of the trinity. When they could not find any
answer but the pat answer we all have heard which is, "IT is a
MYSTERY that the MIND cannot comprehend, therefore you just have to
ACCEPT it by FAITH."
No you do not half to follow these blind leaders who
have not searched the word of TRUTH out for themselves, but rather
just parrot the words and teaches of others from whom they themselves
Just THINK about this for a moment. IF these doctrines
were TRUE, which they BOTH cannot be TRUE, but for the sake of
RATIONAL reasoning, IF one or the other were TRUE, they WHY do we not
find CLEAR teaching of EITHER of these doctrines in the word of God?
Now hear me out and let me explain what I mean by this.
Jesus was a JEW, was he not? Yes I am sure you will agree that Jesus
was a JEW who was sent by God to his OWN people who were of course
JEWS as well. Correct me if I am wrong, but did not the JEWS believe
in a ONE God? Of course they did.
So then, IF the early Church SUPPOSEDELY came to these
JEWS first preaching a GOSPEL of a TRINITY, or a GOSPEL of ONENESS,
then would not there be pages and pages of explanation to these JEWS
who believed in the ONE INVISIBLE God. Seriously, THINK about this
for awhile. There are many pages written over the CONTROVERSY of
CIRMUMCISION and the RESURRECTION of Jesus, but I Myself do not find
one word of teaching to supposedly CORRECT the JEWS.
The TRUTH of the matter is that we do not see the church
writing teachings to CORRECT this doctrine of the trinity until the
fourth and fifth centuries. And the reason WHY is that this doctrine
of the trinity did not EXIST and a doctrine of the church UNTIL that
time in history. Now to ME, this should raise a RED FLAG to every
Christian who has ever been taught these doctrines of the trinity and
oneness. This LACK of CLEAR PLAIN and SIMPLE teaching by the apostles
and the early church should alone prove to you that these were NOT
doctrines that Jesus nor the apostles taught.
Anyway, getting back to this question of what does this
phrase "God was MANIFEST in the FLESH" truly mean let us
now take a close look at HOW this word is used in other places in the
word of God. Please read 1 Corinthians 4:2-11 which tells us that
Jesus Christ was made MANIFEST in OUR FLESH. So does this mean that
Jesus was TRANSFORMED and BECAME OUR FLESH? Why would we believe such
foolish REASNING? Yet some believe this very thing when it is applied
to Almighty God being MANIFEST in the flesh as dogmatically meaning
that Almighty God was TRANSFORMED and BECAME 100% FLESH, bu yet
REMAINED 100% God at the SAME time.
"But have renounced
the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness,
nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by
manifestation (or the clear
revealing) of the TRUTH commending ourselves to every man's
conscience in the sight of God.
3. But if our gospel
be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4. In whom the god of this
world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ, who
is the IMAGE of God, (and
NOT the false deceitful gospel that teaches that Jesus IS ALMIGTHY
GOD the FATHER HIMSELF that the god of this world has blinded the
eyes of those that believe such doctrines lest the LIGHT of the
glorious gospel of TRUTH) should shine unto them.
5. For we preach not
ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves
your servants for Jesus' sake.
6. For God (speaking
of Almighty God the FATHER), who commanded the light to
shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the LIGHT of
the knowledge of the glory of God IN the FACE of Jesus Christ.
7. But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God,
and not of us.
8. We are troubled on every
side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9. Persecuted, but not
forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10. Always bearing about in
the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of
Jesus might be made MANIFEST in OUR BODY.
11. For we which live are
always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also
of Jesus might be made MANIFETS in our MORTAL FLESH."
Now does this mean that Jesus who has now been GIVEN
eternal life by his God and Father even as Almighty God the Father
has LIFE in HIMSELF is now TRANSFORMED and BECOME OUR MORTAL FLESH?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Even to think such a thing is completely ridiculous.
But yet those that teach the doctrine of the trinity and
those that teach the doctrine of oneness will dogmatically demand
that this is what this very same word that is TRANSLATED as MANIFEST
in both place means in 1 Timothy 3:16, but at the same time would not
even dare to say that Jesus has BECOME OUR MORTAL FLESH.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord
Jesus the CHRIST that Jesus was the IMAGE of Almighty God the Father
in that what his God and Father was is CHARACTER so was Jesus. What
ever the Father said to do, Jesus did through the power of the Holy
Spirit of Almighty God the DWELLED IN him. This is WHY Jesus is
called the CHRIST, because Jesus was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit of
This word MANIFEST does NOT mean that Almighty God the
Father BECAME the SON Jesus. I just merely means that Jesus
manifestly DECLARED the GOODNESS of hos God and Father in the LIFE
that Jesus himself LIVED. And this SAME life of Jesus should be
manifestly DECLARED in OUR MORTAL bodies of FLESH.
In Colossians 1:25-28 we read where this MYSTERY of the
ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit DWELLING in the BELIEVER is MANIFEST in
us in order that we may be perfect in the sight of God.
I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is
given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;
26. Even the MYSTERY which
has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made MANIFEST
to his saints:
27. To whom God would make
(or in other words, to whom God would MANIFEST)
what is the riches of the glory of THIS MYSTERY among the Gentiles;
which is CHRIST IN YOU (or the
ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God DWELLING IN YOU. In
other words, the SAME ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit that DWELLED IN
Jesus, or the SPIRIT of CHRIST now DWELLS IN YOU), the hope
28. Whom we preach, WARNING
every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present
every man perfect in Christ Jesus:"
To get right down to it, THIS is the MAIN reason why I
teach what I teach. To ME, as I look around at the body of Jesus the
CHRIST, the church, I see many who are STRUGGLING desperately to stay
faithful to God. And one of the REASONS to ME, is that they believe
that Jesus IS GOD, and that because Jesus while he lived on the earth
was GOD in the flesh was the REASON WHY he did all these wonderful
WORKS of healing.
In other words, because of the teachings of the trinity
and oneness man Christians see Jesus as the ONLY one who can live
without sin, and some also see Jesus as the ONLY one to HEAL the sick
because they see Jesus himself as being Almighty God.
But to ME. I see Jesus as a MAN just like you and me,
who was tempted in every way like we are tempted and yet Jesus did
NOT give into these temptations like many of us do. And the REASON to
ME, seems to be that many Christians believe that ONLY Jesus was able
to RESIST the temptation and NOT sin was because he was literally
Almighty God in the FLESH.
Now to ME, this kind of teaching has become nothing more
than an EXCUSE to continue to give into the temptation to sin.
The TRUTH of the matter is that we are CALLED to FOLLOW
the EXAMPLE that Jesus set for us, which is to live OUR LIVE WITHOUT
SIN. Please read 1 Peter 2:21-23, which says,
"For even hereunto were
you CALLED: because Christ also suffered for us, LEAVING us an
EXAMPLE, that you should FOLLOW HIS STEPS ( so what were the steps of
Jesus, what was the example that he left for us to FOLLOW?):
22. Who did NO SIN,
neither was guile found in his mouth:
23. Who, when he was reviled,
reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but COMMITTED
himself to HIM (speaking of his
God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God) that
Jesus HIMSELF committed the KEEPING of himself from
giving into the temptation to sin and THROUGH the power of the
ETERNAL Holy Spirit of his God and Father that DWELLED IN him, Jesus
OVER CAME Satan the devil and lived his life WITHOUT SIN. Please read
Hebrews 9:14, which clearly teaches us that Jesus THROUGH the Holy
Spirit of Almighty God the Father offered himself WITHOUT SIN. In
other words, THROUGH the power of the Holy Spirit Jesus lived his
LIFE WITHOUT SIN so that he could offer himself as that perfect LAMB
of God without spot or blemish for our sins.
"How much more shall the
blood of Christ, WHO (clearly
speaking of Jesus the CHRIST or Jesus the ANOITED ONE of Almighty God
the Father, Jesus) THROUGH the ETERNAL Spirit
offered himself WITHOUT SPOT (or
WITHOUT SIN) to God, purge your conscience from dead works
to SERVE the living God?"
For a deeper understanding of HOW to live YOUR life
WITHOUT SIN please read the study "HOW TO LIVE FREE FROM SIN".
To ME, I see that the word of TRUTH teaches us that
Almighty God the Father is ETERNAL and that God is SPIRIT. And we
have just seen that the SPIRIT is ETERNAL. So then, would it be
jumping to conclusions to then say that the Holy Spirit is Almighty
God, or at least what God IS.
You see, to ME, I do not see anywhere in the word of God
that CLEARLY and PLAINLY says the JESUS was ALWAYS ETERNAL. Some
teach that Jesus pre-existed ETERNALLY based on the scriptures that
seem to say that Jesus IS the FATHER.
But IF this assumption is true, then WHY did Almighty
God GIVEN Jesus LIFE as in ETERNAL LIFE in himself EVEN as Almighty
God HAS life in HIMSELF? Please read John 5:14-30 where Jesus refutes
the FALSE accusation of the Jesus that by simply calling Almighty God
his FATHER that Jesus was MAKEING HIMSELF EQUAL with Almighty God.
"Afterward Jesus found
him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: sin
no more, lest
(or for fear that) a worse thing come unto you.
15. The man departed, and
told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole (and
so it appeared to those watching this man being healed as if it was
Jesus himself healing this man).
16. And therefore did
the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done
these things on the sabbath day.
17. BUT Jesus answered them,
My Father works hitherto, and I work.
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
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.
(In other words, what Jesus saw
he God and Father do through him either in a vision or a dream, then
Jesus then did what he saw the Father do through him when he saw the
same circumstance come to pass in his life. PLAIN and SIMPLE Jesus
himself was NOT making himself EQUAL with God, but rather was
refuting this FALSE accusation from the Jews by telling them that he
could do NOTHING in and OF HIMSELF, but it was Almighty God who was
healing these people THROUGH him as a man of God whom God loved)
For (or because) the
Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself
does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you
21. For as the Father raises
up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he
22. For 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 Father. He that
honors NOT the Son honors NOT the Father
which has sent him.
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.
AS the Father HAS life in HIMSELF; so has he GIVEN to the Son to HAVE
life in himself;
27. And has GIVEN him
authority to execute judgment also, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN.
28. Marvel not at this: for
the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall
hear his voice,
29. 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.
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 has sent me."
Now to ME, it does not matter if Jesus pre-existed
eternally or not. The thing that matters to me and many others is all
the CONTRADICTIONS with the word of God that make the claim and
dogmatically teach the Jesus IS GOD, as in, Jesus IS ALMIGHTY God in
For the ME, this false teaching CONTRADICTS the word of
TRUTH in many places. For Example: here is a list of IF Jesus is
TRULY God as some teach, then WHY...
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.
Therefore IF Jesus was TRULY God, then HOW is it that Jesus could be
TEMPTED seeing he IS GOD and God CANNOT be TEMPTED. This is a
CONTRADICTION between the DOCTRINE of the trinity and the DOCTRINE
of oneness with the CLEAR PLAIN and SIMPLE word of TRUTH.
Jesus had a WILL of his OWN that was different form the
WILL of the Father, other wise Jesus would not have said, never the
less, NOT MY WILL, but YOUR WILL be done. Now IF Jesus were TRULY
God, then his WILL would be EXACTLY the SAME in every respect. But
yet again another CONTRADICTION between the DOCTRINES of MEN and the
SIMPLICITY of the word of God.
could do nothing of HIMSELF, but rather the Father by his Holy
Spirit IN him did the works. For you see, IF Jesus was TRULY God,
then he word not have said I can do NOTHING OF MYSELF.
was ANOINTED by Almighty God, the Father to preach the gospel and
heal the sick, which raises the question, “Why did he need to be
anointed with the Holy Spirit of Almighty God, if Jesus was truly
God in the flesh, being FULLY God and fully man and EQUAL with God
in every way?”
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.
And 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 it plainly states that Jesus is NOT the Father. And IF Jesus
was TRULY God then there would be NOTHING said in the entire word of
God about Almighty God the Father being GREATER than Jesus.
was, is and always will be UNDER or SUBJECT unto Almighty God the
Father. If Jesus were TRULY Almighty God the HIGHEST and GREATEST of
ALL, then how is it possible for Jesus to be UNDER ans SUBJECT unto
his God and Father?
on the other hand NEVER claims that he is God or equal with God. The
word teaches that Jesus is the Son of God. IF Jesus were
TRULY God, and EQUAL with God, then why did Jesus answer back to
these ACCUSATIONS of the Jews?
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. WHY? Because to ME,
Jesus clearly saw himself as the Son of MAN a fellow brother of the
human race. To ME, I do not see anywhere that Jesus saw himself as
being Almighty God the Father, nor EQUAL with his God and Father, so
then WHY should we?
ever the Word was in the beginning before the Word BECAME FLESH and
was GIVEN the name Jesus the Bible tells us that he stripped himself
of all his glory and took upon himself the nature of man and became
FLESH and blood just like you and I. So WHY try and twist the clear
word of God and dogmatically demand that Jesus IS God, as in, THE
ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God?
and 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 BOTH in order to obtain
eternal life in the world to come. If Jesus were TRULY God, as in,
Almighty God, then there would be no BOTH to honor, there would be
increased in knowledge, the grace of God, and the Spirit and he
learned obedience by the things he suffered. In other words, if
Jesus were truly and FULLY God, then would not this be, an Almighty
God OBEYING himself?
was given LIFE in himself EVEN as the Father has life in himself. or
in the exact same way that Almighty God has life in himself. Now
think about this for a moment, IF Jesus was truly God in the FLESH,
being FULLY God and fully man as we have been TAUGHT, then WHY would
Almighty God NEED to be GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE seeing and knowing that
Almighty God is already an eternal being.
was COMMANDED of God the Father. Again why would an Almighty God
COMMAND himself to do something? And if they were separate but EQUAL
in every way as the DOCTRINE of the trinity states, then you have to
ask yourself, do two beings who are EQUAL COMMAND each other to do
things. Absolutely NOT, no one 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 the Father gave his Son
COMMANDMENTS that Jesus then kept in order to please his Father.
Now you may not agree with anything I have said, and
that is your right as a human being. We all have been given by God
the right to CHOSE. As I said before, I RECEIVE you as my dear
brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ if you believe in the
doctrine of the trinity. And I RECEIVE you as my dear brothers and
sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ if you believe in the doctrine of
oneness. And I pray the you RECEIVE me as your brother in our Lord
Jesus Christ even though I do not accept these man made doctrines of
either the trinity nor the oneness teaching that Jesus is the Father.
It is my prayer that you at least CONSIDER what I have
said and that you yourself pray and ask God what is the TRUTH in
every area of doctrine.
May God bless you richly as you continue to seek the
TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God the FATHER.
Your brother in the Lord Jesus Christ,
