JESUS THE CHRIST!


         SPELLING EDITED 

JESUS THE CHRIST!

 

 

In the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!”, we learned that Jesus was referred to as being the Son of MAN well over twice as many times as Jesus was called the Son of God by others. But Jesus simply being the Son of man alone was not how Jesus overcame the world. It was the ANOINTED Son of MAN who overcame sin and was strengthened through the Eternal Spirit dwelling in him as to how he was able to offer himself to God without spot or blemish.

 

Please read Hebrews 9:14.

 

“How much more shall the blood of Christ, who THROUGH the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” 

 

In John 5:19, Jesus said that the Son of man could do NOTHING OF HIMSELF and in John 14:10, Jesus said that it was the Father DWELLING IN him who did the works. Now, we know that God is eternal. We know that God is a Spirit. And we know that there is just ONE eternal Spirit. So in the light of the whole word of Almighty God the Holy Spirit IS the Father. Please read the study “WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER?” But for now, let us read John 5:19 followed by John 14:10.


John 5:19.  

 

“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.”

 

John 14:10.

 

“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.”

 

The word “Christ” means the ANOINTED one but it also means the Messiah. Jesus is our Messiah which means Jesus is our SAVIOR. So Jesus being the “Christ” is the CORE of Christianity. And this TRUTH of Jesus being the “Christ” no truly born-again Christian will ever deny. For you see, IF a Christian denies that the ANOINTING came in the FLESH of Jesus then they would be “antiChrist”. If a person is antiabortion then they are AGAINST abortion. In other words, they STAND AGAINST abortion. They SPEAK out against abortion. And the same is true with antiChrist. Christians who are antiChrist SPEAK against the ANOINTING that came in the FLESH of the Son of MAN, Jesus, to empower him to do the works that men saw him do THROUGH the Eternal Spirit dwelling IN him. Now, they do not realize that they are speaking or teaching against the anointing of Jesus by their Trinitarian and Oneness teaching that Jesus is Almighty God Himself but they are. For you see, Almighty God does not need to be anointed or empowered. Keep reading so you can see what I am saying concerning the doctrine of the Trinity AND the doctrine of Oneness both being antiChrist or antiANOINTING.

The teaching in the Bible that Jesus was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit and POWER is called the doctrine of Christ. And Christians that teach AGAINST the doctrine of Christ or the doctrine of the ANOINTING are “antichrist”. They are not anti-Jesus and they are not anti-Messiah but they are ignorant of the anointing that came in the flesh of Jesus “Christ”. So when you read the phrase “Jesus Christ” think in your mind “Jesus ANOINTED”.

 

 

Please read 1 John 2:22.

 

Who is a liar but he that DENIES that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.”  

 

Remember that the Son could do NOTHING OF HIMSELF. And it was the Father DWELLING IN the Son of MAN who did the works. The Son did nothing without the Father and the Father did nothing without the Son OBEYING what the Father showed the Son what to do. So if you DENY that Jesus is the ANOINTED one of God then you are anti-Christ or antiANOINTING came in the FLESH of the Son of MAN, Jesus.

Now, every Christian believes that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God. But what Trinitarian Christians do not realize is that when they TEACH that Jesus IS Almighty God HIMSELF then they are, in fact, unknowingly DENYING that the ANOINTING came in the FLESH of Jesus. And when Oneness Christians teach that Jesus is NOT a separate person from the Father they, as well, are unknowingly DENYING that the ANOINTING came in the FLESH of Jesus. In fact, Oneness Christians are unknowingly DENYING that Jesus is the SON OF the living God by their teaching the Jesus is NOT a separate person from the Father.

 Now, the word “CHRIST” also means ANOINTED in another way besides being APPOINTED to a task, such as being anointed to be a king. In other words, the word CHRIST means ANOINTED with POWER from on high to be EMPOWERED to perform a task in which one has been appointed to accomplish. To say this another way, Jesus is our ANOINTED leader, master, and teacher. Jesus was SENT OUT into the world by God AFTER being ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit and power at his baptism to show us the Father to be the one true and only Almighty God by his words AND by the WORKS that Almighty God the Father did through him.

 

Please read Acts 10:36-38.

 

“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, you know, which was published throughout all Judaea and BEGAN from Galilee, AFTER the baptism which John preached

38,  How God 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.” 

 

Again, the word “anoint” means the giving of power and AUTHORITY by God to perform a task given to you by God for you to do. Jesus was anointed WITH the Holy Spirit. This means that the eternal Spirit DWELT IN Jesus and that it was the Father IN Jesus who did the WORKS. Jesus was GIVEN power and authority BY his God and Father to accomplish the task of doing all the will of his God and Father DURING the DAYS of his FLESH. We read over and over in the Bible where Jesus was SENT by the Father.

There are different Greek words that are translated as sent. And many verses, such as John 17:3, use the Greek word “apesteilas” which is Strong’s number G649 that literally means COMMISSIONED by the Father. 


Please read John 17:3 from the KJV.

 

And THIS IS life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND Jesus Christ, whom YOU have SENT.”

 

Now read John 17:3 from a LITERAL translation.

 

And THIS IS life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND WHOM YOU COMMISSION, Jesus ANOINTED.”

 

So then, anointed literally means COMMISSIONED first and then sent. And the word commission means to GIVE power and authority to a person to accomplish a TASK. So let us read the word of God having these meanings in mind when you see them in the New Testament. For you see, the word Christ is NOT the last name of Jesus. The word Christ is not a name at all, but rather, it is a title describing Jesus as being the ANOINTED of God. In other words, God DWELT IN the FLESH of the Son of MAN Jesus. This is what 1 John 2:1-4 and 2 John 1:7 means. We will take a closer look at those verses in this study. but first, let us begin at the beginning of the ministry of Jesus. In Luke 4:18,19 we read that Jesus FULFILLED the Scripture when God ANOINTED him at his baptism by John the Baptist.


Luke 4:18,19.

 

“The SPIRIT OF THE LORD is upon me, (Ask yourself WHY? Why did Jesus need the Holy Spirit, if he was in fact truly Almighty God himself God in the flesh?) because He (Speaking of Almighty God the Father) has ANOINTED me to preach the gospel to the poor; He (The Father) has SENT me (Or more precisely, Yahweh the Father has COMMISSIONED me or My God and my Father has EMPOWERED me by His Spirit coming down from heaven in the form of a dove and DWELLING IN me) to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. 

19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

 

Click on the link to read the LITERAL translation of Luke 4:18,19. In other words, Jesus is saying here that his God and Father, the one true and only Almighty God, has ANOINTED him and EMPOWERED the Son of MAN by being WITH his SON by DWELLING IN his SON. Jesus was quoting from the prophet Isaiah chapter sixty-one, verses one and two. Then in verse 21 of Luke chapter 4, Jesus says that this prophecy is now FULFILLED.

 

Luke 4:21.

 

This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

 

So you can clearly see that Jesus was anointed and SENT or COMMISSIONED by Almighty God the Father who GAVE his SON the POWER and the authority to preach the gospel to the poor and to heal the brokenhearted, to recover the sight of the blind. And all these things Jesus did by his God and Father who DWELT IN him. Jesus said that he himself could do nothing of himself and that the works people saw him do was the FATHER dwelling IN him who was the one doing the works.

You see, we as Christians who heal the sick say what Peter said, Why do look you on us as if by our OWN power this man is healed? Every true born-again Christian would never take the glory for something that Almighty God HIMSELF did by DWELLING IN us. And Jesus is our fellow servant and our EXAMPLE to follow and Jesus always gave all the glory to HIS God and Father who DWELT IN him as the one who did the works that men and women saw Jesus do.

Also, I want to point out the phrase “THIS DAY” the Scripture is fulfilled in your ear. Now, when we are BORN-AGAIN we RECEIVE the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and then we BECOME the sons and daughters of Almighty God. Please notice that it was at the baptism of Jesus on that DAY was the first time that the Son of MAN, Jesus, is called the SON OF God. It was prophesied to the Virgin Mary that because her child has no human father that he SHALL be called the Son of the Highest or the Son of God. And then, at the Son of Man’s baptism by John the Baptist, the voice of the Father from heaven says, This is my beloved Son in who I am well pleased. To me, this is like God saying that He Himself has trained up His human child in the way he should go. To me, it sounds like God had FAITH in his human Son that he would accomplish the TASK of living without sin AND suffer the crucifixion on the cross for the sins of the world THROUGH God holding his hand. When Jesus was tempted in all points like we are tempted, I can see the Father encouraging him, you can do this, my Son, I have FAITH in you. Keep your eye on me, my Son, focus on the JOY that I have set before you.

You see dear children of God, ALL that Jesus did he did THROUGH the power or ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit, which was GIVEN to him by God the Father who came to DWELL IN the FLESH of his human SON, Jesus.

All through the word of God, we find Scriptures that clearly teach us, who have eyes to see and ears to hear, that ALL the works that Jesus did he did THROUGH the power or anointing of the Holy Spirit, who DWELT IN him. Also, we see many verses of Scripture as well that clearly teach us that we as Christians have been given the promise of this SAME anointing of the Holy Spirit to EMPOWER US to do the SAME works that Jesus did including living our lives free from sin.

Moreover, we read in the book of Acts that the early church was told to tarry in Jerusalem UNTIL they were ENDUED with POWER from on High, namely until they received the Holy Spirit. This same Holy Spirit is available for each and every Christian today and not just for the apostles and the early church as some have FALSELY taught. It is God's will for every Christian to be endued with POWER from on High, that is to say, to be FILLED with the Holy Spirit and to REMAIN or to be continually full of the Holy Spirit of God again and again. Please read the study “STIR UP THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU!”

Now the word “Christian” comes from the Greek root word “Christos” which means the anointed one, and is where we get the English word “Christ”. The Bible tells us in Acts 11:26 that the disciples, referring to ALL believers or followers of Jesus, were first called Christians at Antioch. And the reason being is that they were so much like Jesus, the Christ. Hence they became known by the name anointed ones, that is to say, Christians, simply interpreted as Christ-like, or more precisely, in the likeness of the anointed one. We are called God's anointed ones or God's christ in Revelation 12:10.

Now, the purpose of this particular study is not simply to just show that we as Christians are to follow the steps of Jesus, nor is it to show that the only way we can truly follow Jesus and do the works that he did is through the Holy Spirit and not in our own power and strength. I have already covered these points in the studies called “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!” and “HOW YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE FREE FROM SIN!” 

But rather, the point or object of this study is to take a close look at the Scriptures to find out HOW Jesus lived out the anointing in his life so that we as Spirit-filled Christians may learn HOW to let the anointing of God flow through our lives. And, therefore, the world will see the difference between us and them and once again call us Christians in the TRUE sense of the word meaning the ANOINTED ONES, doing the SAME works that Jesus and his Apostles did in the early church. When people witnessed the WORKS Jesus did they said, for a surety, no man could do these works EXCEPT that God be WITH him. God has called us to be his anointed LEADERS, his Christs, to lead the world to God the Father through Jesus his Son by FAITH and the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT.  Most of us already know what we are supposed to do and not to do but we lack the knowledge of HOW to carry out these things. This is because we have not CORRECTLY been taught the word of God. If you have not read the study entitled “JESUS THE SON OF MAN” then I would suggest that you stop here and read that study first.

 If you have already read the study about Jesus being the Son of MAN which means that Jesus was a HUMAN being just like you and me who was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit who EMPOWERED Jesus to do the miracles he did and to live his life WITHOUT SIN, then let us begin this section of this study in God's word on HOW Jesus used the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit.

 

SECTION TWO

 

FOLLOWING THE STEPS OF JESUS THROUGH THE SAME ANOINTING OF JESUS!

 

 

Let us begin section two by taking a close look at Luke 2:40 which teaches us that Jesus GREW STRONG in the Spirit.

 

Luke 2:40.

 

“And the child (Jesus) grew and waxed strong (Or grew strong) in SPIRIT, filled with wisdom: and the GRACE of God was upon him.”

 

Please notice that Jesus the Son of MAN grew physically and he ALSO GREW STRONG in the SPIRIT. The Son of man BECAME FILLED with wisdom. Then we read in Luke 2:52 that Jesus INCREASED in this WISDOM as he grew and became older.

 

Luke 2:52.

 

“And Jesus INCREASED in wisdom and in stature, and in FAVOR WITH GOD and man.”

 

Jesus was NOT YET anointed with the Holy Spirit at this point in his life. But God VISITED the Son of man morning by morning teaching him the Scriptures. The word favor here is the same word translated as grace. Please refer to the study on grace as being the power of God called “THE TRUE BIBLICAL MEANING OF GRACE!”  In that study, you will learn that the word grace means far more than just the unmerited favor of God.

 But for now, let us read Isaiah 50:4,5, where we learn that Jesus was GIVEN a tongue of the learned by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God AWAKENING him every morning and teaching him the SAME way that the Holy Spirit is teaching those of us who have the Spirit of God.

 

Isaiah 50:4,5.

 

“The Lord God (Or my Lord Yahweh) has GIVEN me (The Son of MAN, Jesus) the tongue of the learned, that I should know HOW to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He (Almighty God the Father through the Holy Spirit) WAKENS morning by morning, He (The Holy Spirit of the Father) wakens mine ear (Jesus’ ear) to hear as the learned. The Lord God (My Lord Yahweh the Father) has opened my ear, and I (The Son of MAN, Jesus) was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I (The now, ANOINTED Son of MAN, Jesus) gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off my hair: I (The anointed Son of man THROUGH the power of the Eternal Spirit of Yahweh dwelling in me) hid not my face from shame and spitting.”

 

So HOW did God GIVE his Son, Jesus, the tongue of the learned that he should know when and how to speak to the weary? Notice that the pronoun “He” is referring to Yahweh the Father who THROUGH the Eternal Spirit OF Yahweh wakened the Son of MAN MORNING by MORNING. In other words, God speaks to us each new day by the Holy Spirit. So every day set your ear to hear from God, and then, be not rebellious, but rather be you obedient to the Holy Spirit. It is a LEARNING process, so don’t give up the first time you make a mistake or think that you do not hear anything from God. God did not “zap” Jesus will the tongue of the learned. But rather, from a small child God VISITED the child Jesus every morning. And by age 12 the teachers of the Scripture marveled at how much this 12-year-old child knew about the Scriptures. Even by age 12 Jesus already knew that the Scripture testified of him and being the prophesied to come, Messiah, who would be called the Son of God. So Jesus GREW in wisdom and understanding over time.

 

Please read Job 7:17,18.

 

“What is MAN, that You should magnify him? And You should set Your heart upon him? And You should VISIT him EVERY MORNING, and try him every moment?”

 

When God created man he walked with him in the cool of the day. Genesis 3:8 tells us that Adam and his wife Eve HEARD the VOICE of the Lord God in the cool of the day. And Jesus is the SECOND Adam. There are many hidden prophecies of Jesus being a MAN. But, I myself, have found NO prophecies of some God the Son coming down from heaven to incarnate himself in the flesh and yet remain the fully Almighty God at the same time having two natures, one divine, and one human. The truth of the matter is that Jesus is the FULFILLMENT of the prophetic words that came forth out from the mouth of God. The Son of MAN, Jesus was taught morning by morning and he also prayed to his God and Father every morning as well. So follow this EXAMPLE of Jesus and pray or COMMUNICATE with our heavenly Father every day. The more you talk WITH God the faster you will grow in the Spirit and grace of God.

 

Psalms 5:2.

 

“My voice shall you hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.”

 

Now, this does not mean that you cannot pray at other times of the day or night. It simply means that each new day we should seek the Lord. Early mornings seem to be good because our minds are quieter before the activities of the day actually begin. But we can yet learn to still and quiet our minds at other times of the day as well and pray to our heavenly Father and more importantly HEAR from him. God speaks to us all the time. But, for ME, I can hear God's inner voice in me early in the morning as I am just waking up. Sometimes I am awakened by hearing God's inner voice in me so I wake myself up a little more and talk with him. But again, this does not mean that we can only talk and hear from God in the morning.

 

Now take a look at Isaiah 7:14,15,

 

“Therefore the Lord (Speaking of God the Father) himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, (Why?) that he (Jesus) may KNOW to refuse the evil and choose the good.”

 

So what is meant by butter and honey? Does this mean that literally eating butter and honey causes us to KNOW to refuse evil and choose the good? No, this is symbolic language. But what does it mean?

The twentieth chapter of Job talks about the wicked and in verse seventeen we read that the wicked shall NOT see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter. So it is certain that the word of God is not speaking of literal brooks and rivers of honey and butter. So what does the word of God mean by brooks of honey and butter that the wicked CANNOT SEE? 

Read Job 29:1-6 for a little more insight. I am going to remove some distractions so you do not chase rabbit trails so to speak. You can go back and read the entire context later on your own. I am also going to remove the verse number which sometimes can distract us as well.


Job 29:1-6.

 

“Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, Oh that I were as in the months past (Without sin in my life and I was close to God)…when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle. When the Almighty was yet with meWhen I washed my steps with BUTTER, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil.  

   

This is referring to oil as a type or figure of the Holy Spirit. The servant of God named Job was longing for the time when the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit was upon him that he once had. Now compare this passage of Scripture alongside Proverbs 30:33.

 

Proverbs 30:33.

 

“Surely the CHURNING of MILK brings forth BUTTER…”

 

The Bible likens the WORD of God to MILK or more precisely “sincere milk” which we are to desire and grow thereby. Now think about the CHURNING of God’s word (milk) over and over in our hearts until it becomes “BUTTER”. In other words, as we read, study, and MEDITATE on God’s word day and night then head knowledge move down in the treasure of our HEART to become the ABUNDANCE of our heart. So like butter is to our stomach, God's word is to our inner man. 

 

What does the word of God say in Psalm 119:11?

 

“Your WORD have I hid in my heart (Why?) that I might NOT sin against you.”

 

So when the WORD of God becomes hidden in our heart by meditating on it day and night (churning it into butter, so to speak), then we KNOW to refuse evil and to choose good just like Jesus did. Remember Jesus resisted the devil by saying, “It is written.” Jesus hid the word of God in his heart and used the word of truth against the enemy, the devil. Psalm 20: 7-10 tells us that the WORD of God is sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. To a believer, the word of God is pleasant and is to be desired in order that we may grow strong in the Lord and in the POWER of HIS might.

This is HOW Jesus overcame sin. BY feeding upon butter and honey, the very WORD of his God and Father, the ABUNDANCE of the heart of Jesus came out of his mouth without even thinking about it. And by hiding the WORD of his God in his heart so that he would not sin against his God is HOW Jesus OVERCAME the devil and REFUSED to sin. So let us FOLLOW this EXAMPLE of Jesus to hide God’s word in our heart in ABUNDANCE. Once you taste victory over sin you will taste the sweetness of the POWER of speaking the right words from the word of God.

 

Psalm 119:103.

 

“How sweet are your WORDS unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth.” 

 

One of the reasons that we fail to have the POWER to overcome sin in our lives is because we do not DAILY feed upon God's WORD and fellowship with our heavenly Father DAILY and on a continual basis throughout each and every day. Oh, we may do it for a while just like many of us make a New Year's resolution that is soon forgotten shortly after we make it. In short, out of sight, out of mind. You see, if we do not DAILY seek God through conversation with Him and His Son, Jesus, and read and meditate upon His word DAILY as well, then we will little by little put him out of our minds. We do this unintentionally, of course, but nonetheless, our lack of communing with God causes God and the things of God to be out of our minds,. For you see, the cares of this world will choke the word of God that was sown in our hearts. 

You see, the less that we think upon God and His written word, the more we will think about things of the world and how we can solve life's problems our OWN way and in our own strength. There is a way that SEEMS right to man, but our way leads to death. We are not to lean upon our OWN understanding, but we are to trust and depend upon God.

 We sometimes lose sight of the fact that Jesus, the Son of God, was made in our likeness and spent time in the flesh and that Jesus had to LEARN to depend upon the Holy Spirit for guidance just as we do. 

 

Look at Hebrews 5:7,8.

 

“Who in the DAYS of his FLESH, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him (Or unto his God and Father, Almighty God) that was able to save him from death and was heard in that he feared. Though he were a SON, yet LEARNED he obedience by the things which he suffered.”

 

Jesus had to learn obedience even though he was the Son of God. In other words, obedience did not come to him automatically just because he was the SON of God. Jesus had to work through his feelings and FEARS in the flesh. He did this through prayer, and in this particular instance, it was agonizing prayer with strong crying and many tears and FEAR. 

 

Then we read in Hebrews 12:2 these words.

 

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who FOR the JOY that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 

Jesus learned through the Scriptures of his eternal reward, the JOY that was set before him if he would endure the cross for the atonement of the sins of the world. And knowing his reward, the ANOINTED Son of MAN obeyed his God and Father and endured the cross. And now, as his reward, Jesus is sitting down at the right hand of the Father which is the JOY that was set before him to endure the cross. But this was not the only joy that was set before him.

 

Jesus said in John 8:28.

 

“…I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has TAUGHT me, I speak these things.”

 

From the very beginning of the gospels, we see that Jesus was LED FORTH by the Holy Spirit.

 

 Matthew 4:1 says it like this.

 

“Then was Jesus LED UP of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”

 

 And we read in Luke 4:1.

 

“And Jesus being FULL of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was LED by the Spirit into the wilderness.

 

 Now skip down to verse 14 in Luke chapter 4.

 

“ And Jesus returned in the POWER of the Spirit into Galilee; and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.”

 

The POWER that Jesus operated in was not his OWN power. But RATHER, the POWER that Jesus operated in was in the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit, the SAME Holy Spirit that is made available to EVERY believer. We all receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit the very moment we are saved but we are not always FILLED to overflowing with the Holy Spirit the moment we first believe. Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit and obeyed the leading of the Holy Spirit. Jesus spent time in PRAYER alone by himself. And right after these times of prayer is when Jesus did the work of healing through the FULNESS of the ANOINTING. Again, the SAME fulness of the Holy Spirit that is promised to every believer.  But we need to STIR UP or CHURN the gift that is within us. Please read the study “STIR UP THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT IS WITHIN YOU!” 

Jesus heard the voice of the Holy Spirit and then obeyed His leading or instruction. Sometimes this voice of the Holy Spirit is just a perception in our minds, a gut feeling, so to speak, like an intuition. It may be a thought, an unction, or simply an impression. The word of God often says that Jesus PERCEIVED. The word “perceive” means to become aware of in one's mind, to detect, to achieve an understanding of, or to notice. Sometimes we make hearing and following the voice of the Holy Spirit so spiritual that we no longer grasp the simplicity of God.

Please do not misunderstand what I am saying. I do not want to make light of the authoritative audible voice of God, but in reality, the voice of the Holy Spirit comes to us mostly as a quite small still voice within us. And sometimes we have to stop and think to ourselves if this is our own thoughts or if it is the Holy Spirit leading us? It is a learning process to hear and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit just as Jesus had to learn to hear and follow his God, the Father, the ONE true and ONLY wise God.

To me, just KNOWING that Jesus himself had to LEARN how to hear and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit gives me encouragement to continue to pursue a closer relationship with God. We also have a JOY set before us to endure unto the end to be saved. And that joy is the joy of the promise of eternal life in the world to which is promised to us IF we are found to be faithful unto the end. Therefore, I encourage you, my readers, and seekers of the truth, to press on toward the mark of your high calling unto the end of our race for the prize of the crown of life. Be patient and the Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you into all truth.

Jesus was the Son of MAN. Then Jesus was the CHRIST or the ANOINTED Son of MAN appointed by God. And now, Jesus has passed this SAME anointing on to us who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the SON OF God as our Messiah, the atonement for our sins. And we are given this enduement with POWER from on high in order to preach the gospel to the world and to heal the sick AND to live our lives WITHOUT SIN. We are now the CHRIST or the ANOINTED OF God the Father to carry on with the SAME works that Jesus did. We are the body of Christ or the body of the anointed ones. Please read the study entitled “THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER!” for a deeper understanding of HOW to walk further and deeper in this ANOINTING of God dwelling in us.

The Bible teaches us that Jesus came to SHOW us the Father. Jesus said if you have seen me, then you have seen the Father. Jesus was NOT saying that he HIMSELF was the FATHER, but rather Jesus was speaking of the WORKS that the Father IN him was doing. No man has seen the INVISIBLE God NOR can ever see him being clothed in human nature. But we can see God, as in, UNDERSTANDING the good nature or character of God. So what Jesus meant was when we are seeing the WORKS that the Father did through his Son Jesus, then we are UNDERSTANDING the TRUE character of Almighty God. 

We who have been Christians most of our life see the LOVE and the COMPASSION of the Father who loved us while we were yet sinners and who gave us his only begotten Son. You see dear child of God, WE as Christians have heard the LOVE of God most of our lives. However, to those Jews, who Jesus was preaching to, only knew of God's WRATH and vengeance. Jesus came to show them and us the TRUE God, who is a loving God that only pours out his wrath upon the DISOBEDIENT rebellious wicked men and women who reject his so great a salvation by DENYING his SON Jesus.

Please read John 17:3, where Jesus HIMSELF calls HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE God. Keep in mind that Jesus is speaking in the first person TO his God and Father when this verse is kept in its CONTEXT.

 

John 17:3.

 

“And THIS is life eternal, that they might KNOW YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND Jesus Christ, whom YOU have SENT.”

 

Now I want you to notice a very important point that is brought out in this verse and this vital TRUTH is that the SUBJECT of this verse is ETERNAL LIFE. The first part of this verse says, “And THIS IS LIFE ETERNAL....” WHAT is LIFE ETERNAL or ETERNAL LIFE in some other translations?” THAT whosoever believes might KNOW YOU, heavenly FATHER, to be the ONLY TRUE God, AND that they may ALSO KNOW your SON Jesus to be the CHRIST, the ANOINTED of You O God, whom You have SENT to suffer and die on the cross for their sins so that WHOSOEVER believes on me may have ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.” This is the true sound Biblical meaning of this verse.

In other words, if you want to obtain ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come you MUST believe in the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God the FATHER, AND you MUST ALSO believe in his SON Jesus whom he has SENT. The Jews do not have eternal life abiding in them. The Muslims do not have eternal life abiding in them. ONLY those who believe that Jesus is the CHRIST and the SON OF the living God has eternal life abiding in them. It is not enough JUST to believe that there is a God. The devils believe that God exists and they tremble the Bible says. It is not enough to JUST believe in the one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Both the JEWS and the MUSLIMS believe in the God of Abraham Isaac, and Jacob, BUT neither the Jews NOR the Muslims believe in Jesus as being God's SON whom the one true God ANOINTED and appointed to be HIS MESSIAH to save ALL of mankind from theirs sins. Jesus is the ONLY WAY to eternal life. So I implore ALL who are reading this study in God's word to call upon Jesus, the SON of God to forgive you of all your sins so you can be saved.

You see, the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, clearly teaches us that if you do NOT have the SON, then you do NOT have the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER. So to all Muslims who SAY that we all worship the SAME God do NOT worship the ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY God in Spirit and in TRUTH, the WAY that Almighty God himself desires, because your Quran DENIES that Almighty God is the FATHER of Jesus his SON. So I implore you to read the BOOK, the word of TRUTH that your Quran teaches you to read, and to ask people of the BOOK for UNDERSTANDING. And to any Jews who are reading this study in God's word, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob REJECTS you because you have rejected his SON Jesus as being the CHRIST, your Messiah. This does not mean that God rejects all Muslims and all Jews, but rather only those who REJECT His SON Jesus as being the MESSIAH who died for the sins of the WHOLE world so that WHOSOEVER believes in Jesus the SON OF God shall be saved.

And to my ONENESS brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the CHRIST, since you believe and teach that there is only ONE ALMIGHTY God and his name is Jesus, then you also do DENY the word of TRUTH that CLEARLY and PLAINLY teaches us that there are TWO separate and distinct individuals who are in AGREEMENT as ONE. Please read 2 John 1:6-9 that CLEARLY teaches us that we MUST have BOTH Almighty God the Father AND his SON Jesus in order to obtain ETERNAL LIFE.

 

2 John 1:6-9.

 

“And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, (The word commandment here is NOT speaking directly of the Ten Commandments, but rather a precept or TEACHING) That, as you 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 has come in the FLESH. This is a DECEIVER and an ANTICHRIST. (Or antiANOINTING, as in INSTEAD OF anointing. In other words, teaching that Almighty God the Father did NOT DWELL IN his SON Jesus. Or that Jesus is NOT the Messiah, but JUST a prophet of God is antiChrist teaching)

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, does NOT have God. He that abides IN the doctrine of CHRIST, he has BOTH the Father AND the Son.”

 

Now again, the doctrine of CHRIST is to believe the TEACHING of the word of TRUTH that the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, who ALONE is the Father, SENT the Word of prophecy that was with Him in the BEGINNING into the world by his Angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary. The Bible teaches us that the Virgin Mary then RECEIVED this Word of God spoken to her by the angel Gabriel. And at that moment in TIME, the Word of God was conceived in the womb of Mary as a human son who would be called the Son of God. Then nine months later Mary gave BIRTH to a human son and called his NAME Jesus, which means the salvation OF Almighty God.

In other words, the Word was MADE FLESH or the Word, as in, the spoken word of PROPHECY was fulfilled BECAME a HUMAN BEING. Then this HUMAN child then grew in both stature or grew physically and grew in favor with God. Isaiah teaches us that Almighty God the Father taught his SON morning by morning. Then at the appointed time, Almighty God led his SON to be baptized in water by John the Baptist, which is when Jesus was ANOINTED by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father. This is when the Holy Spirit began to DWELL IN the SON OF God to EMPOWER Jesus to overcome the devil and do the mighty works of healing that Jesus did in the sight of men. Jesus was then tempted by the devil and overcame this temptation by FAITH in the written word of God and the Holy Spirit that DWELT IN him. Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the Devil by the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father that DWELT IN him. Jesus then became OBEDIENT unto death on the cross and was raised back to life on the third day by his God and Father. It is THIS DAY that Almighty God the Father speaks of as THIS DAY have I BEGOTTEN you.

You see dear child of God it was only AFTER Jesus became OBEDIENT unto death on the cross that his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED his SON and GAVE him a NAME that is above every name. EVERY thing that Jesus is and has was GIVEN to him by HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. Please understand that a DAY with God is not measured as a single 24 hour day. And thus, THIS day BEGAN the very moment the spoken word of Almighty God was conceived in the womb of Mary and extended to the ascension of Jesus to his God and Father right after the Son of man was raised from the dead so that the Father could GIVE his Son eternal life, even as, the Father has always had in himself. Then Jesus descended back to earth to show himself alive forevermore for forty days and then ascended back a second time to his God and Father's right hand on his Father's throne. For more verses of Scripture that teaches us that Jesus was “born-again” please read the study “WHAT DOES THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE TRULY MEAN?”

So then, the “DOCTRINE” of CHRIST is to BELIEVE that Jesus IS the MESSIAH AND to ALSO believe that Almighty God ANOINTED his SON Jesus with his own Holy Spirit to EMPOWER his SON to live his life WITHOUT SIN and OFFER himself on the cross to redeem mankind back to the Father.

The Bible meaning of ANOINTED means to have Almighty God the Father DWELLING IN his Son Jesus. But NOT simply dwelling in Jesus or in us, but rather, being FILLED to overflowing where that Holy Spirit pours OUT of us and OVER us with POWER. In other words, we as Christians are all anointed with the Holy Spirit but we are not always UNDER the anointing that comes out of us and UPON us. Jesus spent time in prayer and fasting to STUR UP the Holy Spirit in him and this is how God works within us as well. Jesus was prophesied in the Old Testament to be called Immanuel being interpreted God WITH us. God was WITH his Son Jesus by DWELLING IN his Son and this is why Jesus was called Emmanuel in the New Testament.

You see everyone in Jesus' day saw Jesus as a MAN and some even came to know that God was WITH the MAN Jesus by the works they saw Jesus do. But Jesus plainly told them and us that he could do NOTHING in and of himself and that the Father IN him was the one doing the works. When Peter healed that lame man the people who saw this miracle thought Peter himself healed this lame man, but Peter said to the people why do you look on us as if by OUR power this man is healed.?NO! A thousand times NO it is not by our own power, but rather by this man's FAITH in the NAME of Jesus that healed this man.

You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the CHRIST, in order to ABIDE IN the DOCTRINE of CHRIST you MUST believe in BOTH the FATHER and in the SON. You MUST believe in the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, who ALONE is the FATHER, AND you MUST believe in His SON whom He SENT to die on the cross for the sins of the whole world. THIS is ETERNAL LIFE.

This FAITH, this BELIEF in BOTH the Father AND in his SON is what Almighty God Himself DESIRES us to believe. But the devil does not because the devil knows that when Christians truly see that Jesus was a MAN, who was ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit, who DWELT IN Jesus to empower him to heal the sick, raise the dead, and overcome any and all sin all the time, then Satan's goose is cooked so to speak.

The devil knows that once Christians get a hold of this truth that he will no longer be able to deceive them, oppress them, or overcome them. So Satan does NOT want Christians to KNOW that Almighty God the Father DWELLS IN them in the same way that Almighty God the Father DWELT IN his SON Jesus.

The word of TRUTH teaches us that we must HONOR the SON EVEN AS we honor the Father. This word “honor” means to reverently worship BOTH the Father and his Son Jesus. We MUST have BOTH the Father and his SON Jesus in order to obtain ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come. The word of TRUTH teaches us that if we do NOT have the SON, then we do NOT have the Father. 

 

Please read 1 John 2:18-28.

 

“Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that ANTICHRIST shall come, even now are there many ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that it is the last time.

19. They went out from us, (Or they left our congregation) but they were not of us; (Or those Christians do not believe and follow what WE taught them) for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: (Teaching the same things which we teach) but they went out, (Or they left our fellowship and started they own church denomination) that they might be made manifest that they were not ALL of us (So obviously, some who went out from that particular congregation did indeed believe and follow what they were taught, but there were also some who left this congregation who taught FALSE doctrine. Imagine that! False teaching in the early church! How could that be? Some Christians simply miss this simple truth that there were DIVISIONS in the early church as well)

20. But you have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.

21. I have not written unto you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that NO LIE is of the TRUTH.

22. WHO is a LIAR but he that DENIES that Jesus is the CHRIST? (Again, no Christian KNOWINGLY denies that Jesus is the Christ. BUT both the Oneness Christians AND the Trinitarian Christians UNKNOWINGLY deny that the ANOINTING came in the FLESH of Jesus to EMPOWER him. And HOW do they do this? It is by their false teaching that Jesus is fully God and fully human at the same time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human. In other words, by their teaching that Jesus IS Yahweh himself they are unknowingly denying that Jesus is the ANOINTED Son of MAN whom Almighty God chose to be his LAMB to redeem mankind back to himself so God could HIGHLY exalt him to BECOME “A” God to rule for Yahweh in the world to come. So then, WHO is a LIAR he that DENIES that Jesus is ANOINTED) He is ANTICHRIST, (Or they are against the doctrine or the teaching that the Father DWELT IN his SON Jesus to ANOINT his SON with power. So the Christians who wrongly teach that Jesus is Almighty God HIMSELF are actually anti-ANOINTING Christians) that DENIES the Father and the Son. (In other words, if you DENY either one, then you DENY them BOTH. If you deny that the Father DWELT IN his SON Jesus then you deny the very words of Jesus and Jesus said that the words he spoke will judge us on the last day. And if you deny that Jesus is a SEPARATE person from the Father then you are UNKNOWINGLY denying that God has a SON)

23. Whosoever DENIES the Son, the SAME has NOT the Father: (But) he that acknowledges the SON, has the Father ALSO. (Both Muslims and Jews are, indeed, the seed of Abraham but neither religious group as a whole believes that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God who died for their sins. And neither Muslims nor Jews believe that Jesus is the MESSIAH who died on the cross for their sins. And Jesus said that if you do not believe that I am HE then you shall remain dead in your sins. The Jews asked Jesus WHO are you and Jesus answered, I am the same one that I have told you I am from the BEGINNING. Then if we go back to the beginning of the ministry of Jesus we clearly see that Jesus says that he is the CHRIST, by saying God had ANOINTED him. Jesus then closed the book of Isaiah and sat down. Jesus is the FULFILLMENT of the SCRIPTURES that speak of HIM as being the coming MESSIAH. And if you do NOT believe in the SON OF God who died for YOUR sins then you shall REMAIN condemned in your sins to suffer the second death, the lake of fire on the final Day of Judgment)

24. Let that, therefore, abide IN you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall REMAIN in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. (This verse is NOT talking about what you have heard from the beginning by your church DENOMINATION, but rather what these early disciples of Jesus heard Jesus himself teach. Even the Jehovah’s Witnesses UNKNOWINGLY DENY that Jesus is the SON OF God by their teaching of Jesus being the CREATOR of all things. Please read the studies “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?” and “WHAT DOES THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE TRULY MEAN?”)

25. And THIS is the promise that HE has promised us, even ETERNAL LIFE. (The words you hear at church may or may not lead you to eternal life! So then, YOU yourself must read and study the Bible for YOURSELF in order to see if what you are being taught is indeed the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God)

26. These things have I written unto you concerning them that SEDUCE you. (This is my heart as well dear children of God. The care of the churches comes upon me daily and I do not want to see any of my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the CHRIST be seduced and deceived by the enemy who uses good well-meaning Christians to do his dirty work of deception. The simple truth is that there are many doctrines of devils in the church of today)

27. But the ANOINTING which you have received of him abides IN you, and you need NOT that any man teaches you: but as the same ANOINTING teaches you of all things, and is TRUTH, and is no lie, and even as it (The pronoun it should be he just as the rest of the verse refers to the anointing of the Holy Spirit as him. So, even as HE) has taught you, you shall abide in him. (So when the Holy Spirit begins to show you in the word of God things that contradict what you have been taught by your church denomination, then LISTEN to the Holy Spirit)

28. And now, little children, abide in him; (Speaking of remaining full of the ANOINTING, the Father dwelling IN you, the same Spirit of the CHRIST or the same Eternal Holy Spirit who DWELT IN Jesus the CHRIST, the ANOINTED ONE) that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and NOT be ashamed before him at his coming.”

 

The Word was MADE flesh. THIS DAY have I begotten you says Almighty God the Father. The HUMAN Jesus had a BEGINNING. Jesus came into existence for the first time when the spoken word of prophecy was fulfilled and that prophesied CHILD was born of the FLESH. The MAN Jesus was BROUGHT FORTH INTO EXISTENCE. The SON Jesus is NOT SELF EXISTING like the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the Father from all eternity past. 

Then the Son of MAN, Jesus, was BORN-AGAIN at his baptism when he received the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit to BECOME Jesus the CHRIST. You see God made Jesus be both Lord and Christ. Jesus was Lord, as in, master or TEACHER during his ministry. But Jesus was not actually made to become the Lord of the Sabbath until AFTER the cross. For you see, Jesus was GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE BY HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God AFTER Jesus became obedient even to die on the cross for our sins. And Jesus will rule as the Lord of the Sabbath in the world to come. The TRUE Sabbath is the 1000 year long day of Yahweh's rest while Jesus rules FOR Yahweh during the Millennium. And our true Sabbath is our REST in Jesus.

Plain and simple, Jesus is NOT one and the self-same being as ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF. Now, this is NOT to say that Almighty God himself did not himself BECOME a human being. I will explain more on this point further in this study. But for now, I want you to see that if Jesus were truly fully Almighty God himself and fully man at the same time, then he would not have needed to be GIVEN immortality or eternal life BY HIS God and Father. For you see, Jesus would have already been an eternal being if so be that Jesus was truly fully Almighty God Himself and a human being at the same time having two natures one divine, and one human as some church denominations dogmatically demand.

If you could just truly SEE that the same Almighty God the Father who DWELT IN his SON Jesus now dwells in YOU to EMPOWER you to do the SAME works that the Father did dwelling in his Son Jesus, then we could move to the meat of God's word. But first, you have to know that you have been GIVEN power in the name of Jesus to do the SAME works that Jesus did. The POWER of the BODY of Jesus the ANOINTED ONE will return in all its glory to magnify God as the BODY of Christ was in the early church. Christians will be as a bright and shining LIGHT unto the world. They will walk before God and man WITHOUT sin. They will heal the sick and even raise the dead. We will have more boldness to preach repentance to the world. Yes, the world will hate us all the more for reproving them of sin, but on the day of the coming of our Lord, WE will hear the words of Jesus saying WELL DONE my good and FAITHFUL servants ENTER INTO the JOY of your Lord!

Please read John 5:16-31 which CLEARLY and PLAINLY teaches us in SIMPLICITY that Almighty God the Father GAVE to his SON Jesus ETERNAL LIFE even AS or in the same way that Almighty God ALREADY HAS ETERNAL LIFE IN HIMSELF from all eternity past.

Also, keep in mind that the Gospels were written AFTER the FACT. In other words, Jesus is not actually speaking in the PRESENT tense in the gospels, but rather John and the other writers of the gospels are recording the account of the life of Jesus AFTER the FACT. To say this another way, Jesus, the SON God was GIVEN eternal life after God raised His Son from the dead. Jesus knew beforehand that his God was going to grant his Son eternal life. This promise to His SON was the JOY that was set before Jesus that secured him to endure the cross. We have to compare Scripture with Scripture and Philippians explains very clearly as to when Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED and given a name above every name, which was AFTER Jesus became obedient even unto death on the cross.

 

John 5:16-31.

 

“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. (Meaning I simply obey what I see my Father do and say for me to do. Perhaps it was in a night dream or an open vision during the day. But definitely, it was by hearing and obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit to PERCEIVE God leading him)

18. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the Sabbath but said also that God was his Father, making himself EQUAL with God. (This is a FALSE ACCUSATION from the Jews who were persecuting and trying to kill Jesus who said that Jesus was making himself EQUAL with God. But Jesus answered this FALSE accusation defending himself)

19. Then ANSWERED Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, (Or truly, truly) 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, Jesus is saying NO! I am NOT making myself equal with my God and Father, the truth of the matter is that the Son can do NOTHING in and of himself. In other places in the Bible, we see that Jesus both heard and saw things that his God and Father was doing whether in a vision or a dream we are not told, but then Jesus simply did what he saw his Father doing in this vision or a dream. But it was Almighty God DWELLING IN his SON Jesus that was actually DOING these mighty works)

20. For the Father loves the Son and SHOWS him (And the Father shows the Son) all things that HIMSELF DOES: (And the Father shows the Son all things that the Father HIMSELF does) and he will show him (And the Father will show the Son) greater WORKS than these, that you may marvel.

21. For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; (Or gives life to 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 (Or so 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. (Or more precisely, the one SENDING him. See the LITERAL translation)

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. (If your church denomination is NOT teaching you these words of Jesus HIMSELF, then you are listening to MAN-made doctrines and not the words of Jesus. Jesus said the words that I speak shall JUDGE men on the last day so be absolutely sure you are believing and following the words of JESUS over man-made doctrines. 

In other words, are you obeying God's word to live without sin OVER obeying man-made doctrines that falsely teach you that you are just a SINNER saved by grace and that you are only human and only Jesus can live without sin so you will always be a sinner until you get to heaven? Well are you ABSOLUTELY SURE that you will be given the right to eat of the tree of life if you continue to live in sin by breaking God's commandments? If I were you I would most definitely read and FOLLOW the words of JESUS over these man-made teachings that TICKLE the ear of believers. Please read Revelation 22:14,15 and then follow up and read the entire study called “IS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED BIBLICAL?” For you see, your very soul may be at stake if you die while living in sin. Jesus said that he did not come to judge the world; speaking of his first coming and went on to say that the WORDS, which he taught would judge us. 

In other words, if we are not believing and obeying the words of JESUS over man-made teachings, then WHOSE words will be your JUDGE? You can take the chance that you are being taught the truth by your church denomination, but I myself am going to search the word of TRUTH for myself and follow what the Holy Spirit dwelling IN me is teaching me. And one of the things that the Holy Spirit revealed to me in God's word is that Jesus was GIVEN eternal life only AFTER he became OBEDIENT to do all his God and Father's WILL. So then if the FIRST begotten from the dead NEEDED to OBEY his God and Father what makes some Christians THINK that they do NOT have to obey the words of Almighty God and his Son Jesus? The deceiver has planted many doctrines of devils in the church of today so read God's word for YOURSELF!)

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; SO HAS He GIVEN to the SON TO HAVE LIFE IN HIMSELF (In other words, Jesus was NOT an ETERNAL BEING who existed from all eternity as some FALSELY teach, because Jesus the SON that was BEGOTTEN THIS DAY at a specific point in time by the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God and then the SON OF God was GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE just as Almighty God HAS ALWAYS HAD LIFE IN HIMSELF);

27. AND has GIVEN him AUTHORITY to execute judgment ALSO, BECAUSE (Because WHY? Because Jesus was ALMIGHTY God himself? NO! Because Jesus was the SON OF Almighty God? NO! But rather, the CLEAR PLAIN and SIMPLE word of TRUTH says BECAUSE) he is the Son of MAN. (These are the words of JESUS that Jesus himself is teaching us. So whose words are you going to believe, the words of Jesus himself or the man-made teaching of your church denomination? Please keep in mind that John wrote this account of the Gospel AFTER Jesus ascended into heaven. And we all know that Jesus was NOT the Son of MAN in eternity past before God ever created the first man Adam nearly 6000 years ago)

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.

30. I can of mine OWN self do NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek NOT mine OWN WILL, but the will of the Father which has SENT me.

31. If I bear witness of MYSELF, my witness is NOT true.”

 

To me, there is NO WAY in my mind that anyone who TRULY considers the WHOLE word of God can say that Jesus was CLAIMING to BE ALMIGHTY God himself or even EQUAL with HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God after reading the CONTEXT of verse 18 where the Jews accused Jesus of making himself equal with God. This is WHY we must always interpret every verse being LEFT in the CONTEXT of where it is found. I mean the Jews also accused Jesus of having a devil, so are you going to believe the Jews or are you going to believe the words of JESUS?

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the CHRIST, that whatever FORM that Jesus WAS in the beginning when the Word was with God BEFORE the Word was MADE FLESH that it was NOT the form of ANOTHER separate divine eternal being at God's side called God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God. But rather, the FORM of the Word on the DAY that Almighty God decided to BRING FORTH a HUMAN Son into EXISTENCE to be His Messiah was the Word of PROPHECY which was still yet WITHIN the heart and mind of God as God's PLAN of salvation. Then that divine FORM or divine NATURE within Almighty God as God's thoughts was stripped of its divine NATURE by God forming His thoughts as to the way He desired His Messiah to be. In other words, God chose for His Messiah to be an ANOINTED human being. And thus, the SPOKEN word of PROPHECY BECAME FULLY HUMAN in NATURE being WITHOUT any DIVINE nature. To say otherwise is to ignore and twist the Scripture to make them say what you want them to say.

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 to me and let me know. Some verses are included in other 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 that verse or verses 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. Below are ALL the verses that I have been made aware of that are used to try and prove the doctrine of the Trinity and the LITERAL pre-existence of Jesus in eternity past.

 

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.

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

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!<<<


Thanks for reading. May God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Your brother in our Lord Jesus the CHRIST,

Brother Mark.
