The DEITY of JESUS, ACCORDING to the BIBLE!-3


SPELLING EDITED


THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE! Part 3

 

So then, back to the questions at hand that we have been discussing in part 1 and part 2 of this study. Does Jesus being the SON OF Almighty God make Jesus BE Deity, as in, is Jesus ALMIGHTY God Himself? Or did the human Jesus BECOME a Deity after the cross by being GIVEN the Divine nature of immorality BY his God and Father as we learned in part 1 and part 2 of this study, the Deity of Jesus, ACCORDING to the Bible itself?

 It is clear to us that in the natural that when a father has a son that the son is clearly a HUMAN BEING, as in, having a human NATURE. But, it is ALSO perfectly clear to our understanding that the SON is NOT the father and the father is clearly NOT the son. Now again, in the case of humans, the father and the son are BOTH OF the same nature, that is to say, they are both human beings or human in NATURE to have ONLY a human nature.

However, they are still two distinct separate persons. They may possess or have some of the SAME qualities or characteristics, but they are not ONE and the self-SAME being. Nor can they be made to be one and the same person. They are and always will be TWO DISTINCT and different persons.

Of course, there is no doubt that the two can be in AGREEMENT and in UNITY, but again, TWO separate persons being one in an agreement does not make them actually be ONE and the self-SAME being or one and the self-same person. Let me say this again, a human father and son are the same, ONLY in that they are of the same nature, that is to say, they are the same in like fashion as a human father having a human son where both are human in NATURE. But simply being of the same nature does not mean that they are ONE and the SAME person or being. They are and always will be two different entities, or two different beings. One being is the father and the other being is his son. Yes, a father of his own son can be a son of HIS father. And thus, the one being can be both a father and a son at the same time by being both a father of his son and a son of his father at the same time. But again, this does not make any son and his father actually be one and the self-same human being. Both have the same human nature but they cannot ever be one and the self-same human being.

So then, since we understand that it is this way in the NATURAL then SOME Christians automatically ASSUME that it must, without fail, be this way in the SPIRITUAL as well. So, therefore, both Oneness Pentecostal Christians and Trinitarians Christians dogmatically INSIST that the word “ONE” In John 10:30 means that Jesus is one and the self-same Almighty God as the Father. And their line of reasoning is that since humans beget human nature then it MUST, without fail also be the Divine God nature beget God Divine nature. Then they conclude that is WHO Jesus is called God in Hebrews 1:8. But when it comes to “interpreting the Scriptures it is best if we do not ASSUME something is true based upon ALLEGORIES, metaphors, or reading INTO a text an ASSUMED predisposed belief.

For example, we know that Jesus is the one that the Bibles says was made flesh. So we take what we KNOW is true and then THEY make an ASSUMPTION to say that since Jesus is the Word made flesh in John 1:14 and the Word in John 1:1 is said to be God, then that proves that Jesus IS Almighty God Yahweh Himself.

Can you not see, that is working BACKWARD which does not word with things that are MADE or things that BECAME or with what WAS God in the past and have NOW BECOME something else. Right now, Jesus is still a Prince, according to Revelation 1:5. And we are not yet made kings of the earth until the coming of Jesus.

 

Please read Revelation 1:5,6.

 

“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him, that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6.  And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. ”

 

But AT the coming of Jesus, he will be coming as the King of kings and the Lord of lords. And as we learned in art 2, Jesus was MADE Lord by Yahweh the Father AFTER the cross. And, likewise, Jesus was MADE a King of kings AFTER the cross by the Eternal invisible King the ONLY wise God, according to 1 Timothy 1:17. Now once we are made partakers of the Divine nature of immortality we will no longer be able to say that we are MORTAL human. For you see, AFTER the prophecy is FULFILLED I will no longer BE what I WAS. So in the same way. The word WAS God but then the word was MADE flesh. So the NATURE that WAS the word of prophecy WAS Divine in NATURE but when the word was MADE flesh then the NATURE of the FULFILLED word became FLESH and no longer of Divine nature. 

So you see we can not go BACKWARD to say that we will be MORTAL humans in the world to come simply because we are mortal now and we will be MADE immortal. In other words, put yourself in the future looking BACK like we are in the future after the fulfillment of John 1:1 looking BACK to what the word WAS before the Word was MADE flesh which is something DIFFERENT than what it WAS.

Now, this is only one interpretation of John 1:1. And another interpretation that I believe is the best and most accurate interpretation is that John 1:1 is the record of the Apostle John's teaching us how the word of PROPHECY was made flesh. So, John 1:1c could be translated as “and the word was “A” God”. or you see, that is what has been FULFILLED clearly seeing that Jesus is “a God under and subject to his God. For a deep understanding of John 1:1 please read ALL nine studies that I have written of John 1:1 because each study brings out different points that the average Christian and even some Scholarly well knowledgeable Christians are not aware of. But for now, let us move on to my next point that DURING the days of his FLESH Jesus was fully human nature having NO divine nature of himself. But rather, God DWELT IN him in the SAME way the God now DWELLS IN us who believe. Why would the Bible itself even say that there were days of his FLESH if so be that Jesus was Almighty God Himself in the flesh? How could we possibly FOLLOW in the steps of Jesus who did no sin if so be that Jesus overcame sin as being Almighty God Himself? And besides that, Jesus was TEMPTED and God an NOT be tempted, according to James 1:13.

 

Please read Hebrews 5:7.

 

“Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;”

 

I believe that the Bible itself clearly teaches us that in the beginning, God was alone with only His thoughts within Himself. God then created all things ALONE and by Himself before mankind was ever created. Before God created anything there was NO one WITH God at His side. God then set up some of His creatures such as some of the angels to be Elohim or Gods over different parts of His kingdom. And one such God that Yahweh set up or ANOINTED to be a God over the earth BEFORE mankind was created was Lucifer. Then one day Lucifer was lifted up with pride and rebelled against God and drew one-third of the angels to side with him to make war against God’s throne. This was not just a mere sin, but rather, and it was an all-out WAR to take over God's throne. God and His remaining faithful angels subdued Lucifer and his angels and God was ready to destroy them all right then and there on the spot. But Lucifer BLAMED God for CREATING him with a sinful rebellious nature so God had no right to destroy him.

So God, or Elohim, said to His Elohim that He Himself SET or appointed to be Elohim or gods in Genesis 1:26,27, let us make man in our image and after our likeness.

 

Please read Genesis 1:26,27.


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

27.  So God created (H853 Aleph and Tav Messiah Jesus) man in HIS own image, (As in, God create the SECOND Adam in His MIND and plan to bring into existence) in the image of God created HE him; male and female created He them.”

 

         And at the same time that God was speaking to His angles that were present with Him, Yahweh was ALSO hiding a secret message that His yet future second Adam would read know that the Scriptures testify of him as the untranslated H853 the Aleph and the Tav, the first and the last letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. And to me, that is why Jesus QUOTED the word of Yahweh to say “I am the first and the last, the beginning and the end. Jesus knew that he is the spoken word of prophecy made flesh, as in, every last letter, jot, and title of prophecy from beginning to the end.

So then, God created this new species of being a little LOWER than the ANGELS because he wanted ALL his superior creation of angels to SEE that an INFERIOR species of being could live without sin. And thus, if ONE man living south sin would prove for all time that God did NOT create Lucifer with a sinful rebellious nature. And therefore clear God’s polluted name. God will be just to destroy any of His creation who rebels against him. And for our suffering in the present world, WE who overcome as Jesus overcame will rule and reign with Jesus and shall judge the fallen angels. That is WHY the angels are so interested in looking into why God visits the Son of man. To me, this explains why 1 Timothy 3:16 says that Jesus was SEEN OF angels. I asked God WHY was Jesus SEEN of angels and God say that Jesus will JUDGE the angels. Then all the pieces started falling into place and I understood WHY Satan is always ACCUSING the brethren. It is because WE will another judge the fallen angels along with Jesus.

Now, all God needed was ONE man created lower than the angels to not sin, but why settle this issue with just one man? Jesus is the firstborn of MANY brethren and we who overcome the enemy shall be like Jesus is now for we shall see him as he is in all his glory of the Father. We will be ONE with Jesus even as HE is ONE with the Father.

So then, God CHOSE to use a MAN to redeem mankind back to Himself. So Yahweh's spoken His word of prophecy that came out from His own mouth was the word that became FLESH. And when the CHILD was BORN he was GIVEN the NAME Jesus which in Hebrew means that Salvation OF Yahweh. Jesus was BORN to be a Savior and Jesus was BORN to be the King of Israel nut DURING the days of his FLESH Jesus was not yet either a savior or a King until AFTER the cross. And to me, the Bible teaches that during the days of his FLESH, the Son of MAN, Jesus, was 100% a human being having ZERO % divine nature, during the days of his FLESH. Jesus was ANOINTED of God which means that the eternal Spirit DWELT IN Jesus to empower him to do all that men saw Jesus do. But yet, Jesus could do NOTHING OF himself in the same way that WE do not heal people in our OWN power.

Then AFTER Jesus became obedient to do all his God and Father's will even to suffer and die a cruel death being crucified on the cross for the sins of mankind, his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of MAN to BECOME the ETERNAL SON OF God. And also, become a God under Yahweh to rule and reign FOR the Father during the world to come for 1000 years. After the seventh 1000 year long day of Yahweh's Sabbath REST, Jesus, as the Lord OF the Sabbath, will commit the kingdom back into his God and Father's hand. God, Himself will then create the New Heaven and the New Earth and the New Jerusalem will come down and Yahweh Himself will dwell with His NEW creation where evil shall never exist again in the ages to come. Please read the three-part study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”

Now, to ME, it should seem logical to all that Jesus is not ONE and the SAME being as Yahweh the Almighty God, the Father, for the simple fact that it is illogical for God to pray to Himself. Also, simple logic tells me that every time that any verse is used to try and prove that Jesus is God, as in, Jesus is Yahweh Himself then they are in reality saying that Jesus IS the FATHER. For you see, as we have already seen by many, many verses Scriptures in part 2 of this study that the very disciples of Jesus ALWAYS clearly identified the ONE, God, as being the FATHER. And the Bible itself clearly teaches us that the Father is the God OF Jesus. So it is illogical to say that an Almighty God has Almighty God over Himself. The only logical way to harmonize Jesus as being called God and the Father as being called God is that there is ONE Almighty God in ONE person who alone is the Father and there is another God under and subject to his God and Father who MADE His human Son become a God to rule FOR Him UNTIL the Father puts all the enemies under his feet.

Here are all the verses of Scripture that are “INTERPRETED” to mean that Jesus IS Yahweh Himself in the flesh during the days of his flesh. I will list them first out of their context and then show you the Trinitarians and the Oneness Pentecostal Christians line of reasoning as their argument as to why they interpret Jesus as being called God to mean that Jesus is Yahweh Himself. And then I will show you WHY I disagree with both Oneness and Trinitarian Christians and prove to you from the Scriptures that Jesus is “a” God who was MADE “a” God AFTER the cross.

 

Hebrews 1:8.

 

“But unto the Son he says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.”

 

 Now the Trinitarian and Oneness argument or reasoning of what this verse means by those that teach that Jesus is THE Almighty God Himself goes something like this.

 

Reasoning #1, the Trinitarian argument.

 

Please notice that the word “God” here is capitalized. So, therefore, that means it is referring to Almighty God and not that Jesus is “a god” with a lower case “g”.  

Therefore, according to the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus that both Oneness and Trinitarian Christians teach, it is taught that the word of “God” teaches that Jesus IS fully God. And to them, that means that Jesus is fully Almighty God Himself in the flesh and fully a human being at the same time having both a divine nature and a human nature at the same time.

However, that is NOT what Hebrew 1:8 teaches when it is LEFT in its CONTEXT. For an in-depth study on this verse please read the study “WHAT DOES HEBREWS 1:8 JESUS IS GOD TRULY MEAN?” But for now, please notice that in the very next verse, Hebrews 1:9, we can clearly see that Jesus is “a” God under and subject to his God. We can also see from the context that the reason that the Father ANOINTED him with the oil of GLADNESS to be ABOVE his FELLOWS is BECAUSE OF Hos son loving righteousness and hating sin. And the rest of the context definitely speaks of AFTER the cross that the human Son of God was anointed above his fellow brethren and also OBTAIN a more excellent name than the angels. In other words, Hebrews 1:8 does NOT teach us that the Son was called God in the eternity past.

 

Please read Hebrews 1:9.

 

You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; THEREFORE, (Or for the very reason that you loved righteousness and hated iniquity) God, even YOUR God, has ANOINTED you with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”

 

The word translated as “anointed” means to concrete to an office and the root word means to FURNISH what is needed to hold that office of EXULTATION which is one of the meanings of the Greek word translated as gladness And exultation meaning the feeling of victorious rejoicing. So you have to ask yourself the question, when was the already God the Son victorious over something that caused him and his God to rejoice in victory? 

Here is how E-Sword defines the Greek word translated as gladness.

 

G20

ἀγαλλίασις

agalliasis

ag-al-lee'-as-is

From G21; exultation; specifically welcome: - gladness, (exceeding) joy.

 

And WHY would an already Almighty God the Son in the eternity past be anointed ABOVE his FELLOWS. A fellow means a person of the SAME position. And in Hebrews 2:12 Jesus calls us in the church his BRETHREN of his fellows. And in Hebrews 1:3-5, we see that Jesus OBTAINED a more excellent NAME than that angels and that he was APPOINTED to INHERIT the worlds to come. Now, an already God the Son in the eternity past would have already owned the worlds to come. So CLEARLY, Jesus being called God by his God in Hebrews 1:8 is AFTER the cross and NOT in the eternity past.

Let us move on to the next famous Trinitarian verse of Scripture that is used to try and prove that Jesus pre-existed as God the Son in the eternity past.

 

John 1:1.

 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

 

Reasoning #2, the Trinitarian argument.

 

This Scripture clearly shows that the Word, which we know is referring to Jesus, is God. Therefore, since Jesus is the Word is God then Jesus IS God. And since Jesus IS God and there can only be ONE God then that means that Jesus is THE Almighty God Himself in the flesh.

But that is NOT what John 1:1 says and the Trinitarian “INTERPRETATION must be READ INTO John 1:1. Again, please read all NINE in-depth studies that I have written on John 1:1 because each one of those studies brings out different points that prove that the Word should NOT be capitalized. For you see, the word in John 1:1,14 is the SPOKEN word of PROPHECY that came out from God’s mouth and NOT a separated divine being who was with God at God’s side in the eternity past. Also, please watch this short 5-minute video where a very well know dogmatic Trinitarian advocate and debater for the doctrine of the Trinity openly admits that the word in John 1:1 is the SPOKEN word of God that came out of God’s mouth.


Trinitarian Michael Brown agrees with unitarian Christians.

 

Now let us read John 1:1-5 as it literally means with the word as being the spoken word of God as being the way in which Almighty God the Father Himself created all things by SPEAKING them into existence.

 

John 1:1-5.

 

“In the beginning was the SAYING, and the SAYING was with God, and God was the SAYING.

2.  The same (Or the SAYING, as in the spoken word of prophecy) was in the beginning with God. 

3.  All things were made by IT; (The SAYING or God himself calling things into existence) and without IT (The spoken word of PROPHECY) was not anything made that was made. 

4.  In IT (The spoken word of Yahweh) was life; (Or the ability to make alive or manifest into existence the thing or person prophesied to come into existence) and the life was the light of men. (Meaning that the SAYING of PROPHECY was FULFILLED in Jesus to be that LIGHT that was prophesied in Genesis 1:3)

5.  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.” 

 

Jesus is the light of the world by speaking the words of Yahweh that Yahweh Himself put in the mouth of His Prophet, Jesus. To speak FOR Yahweh IN Yahweh’s NAME. And that is ONE sound Biblical meaning of John 1:1. And another meaning is that the ALL in verse 3 is speaking of the ALL of whosever believes to be created IN Jesus Christ. For you see, the word “things” is NOT in the original text. Again, please read all nine studies that I have on John 1:1 found under the heading >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<

But for now, let us move on to the next verse of Scripture that is used to try and prove that Jesus is the Almighty God Yahweh Himself.

 

John 20:28.

 

“And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”

 

 Reasoning #3, the Trinitarian argument.

 

Thomas was one of Jesus’ own disciples that Jesus had personally chosen and Thomas himself called Jesus God when he said, My Lord AND my God. Therefore, Jesus IS God, as in, Jesus is the Almighty God Himself because one of Jesus' very own disciples called him God.  

Please notice that this was AFTER the cross that Thomas said the words, My Lord and my God. And seeing that Jesus was MADE Lord by his God and Father AFTER the cross and Thomas spoke these words AFTER the cross then it is not a stretch to assume that Jesus was made “a” God by Yahweh the Father AFTER the cross. After all, we have already seen that Hebrews 1:8 is AFTER the cross and that Jesus is “a” God under and subject to his God. For the in-depth study please read the study “JOHN 20:28 MY LORD AND MY GOD!”

Let us move on to the next verse of Scripture used to try and prove that Jesus is Yahweh Himself in the flesh.

 

I John 5:20.

 

“And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”

 

 Reasoning #4, the Trinitarian argument.

 

This Scripture shows that Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life because it says that we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life, meaning Jesus Christ IS the true God.

 

The TRUE meaning of this verse of Scripture is that BY being IN His SON we are IN the Father who IS the TRUE God. And by being in BOTH we have eternal life. And the reason we know this is the true meaning of this verse is that Jesus himself clearly identifies the Father as the ONLY true God in John 17:3 where Jesus is praying to the Father. Let us go ahead and read John 17:3.

 

John 17:3.

 

“And THIS IS life eternal, that they might KNOW YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND (THAT they may KNOW) Jesus Christ, whom YOU have SENT.”

 

The Greek word translates as SENT means COMMISSIONED. And the word commission means to GIVE power and authority to a person to empower them to accomplish the task that they are given to do. And remember that the meaning of ANOINT in Hebrews 1:8 is to FURNISH with the what is need to hold the office as God of the earth in the world to come UNTIL Yahweh puts all the enemies under to feet of His Son, Jesus. You can also read the in-depth study “1 JOHN 5:20 THIS IS THE TRUE GOD!” Let us take a closer look at the next verse used to try and prove that Jesus is Almighty God Himself.

 

Titus 2:13.

 

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;”

 

Reasoning #5, the Trinitarian argument.

 

The Bible teaches that Jesus is our Savior and that Jesus is coming again, which is sometimes referred to as the APPEARING of Jesus. Therefore, from this Scripture, one can plainly see that Jesus IS the great God and our Savior who will come again or appear at his coming.

 

The truth of the matter is that Yahweh the Father who is the great God is coming WITH Jesus at the second coming. Hebrews 1:6 teaches us that God will BRING His first begotten into the word again and the angels will bow and worship him. And the prophecy in Habbakuk 3:3 says that God will come from Teman and the Holy One of Israel will come from Paran. And 1 Thessalonians says that God will BRING those who sleep with him. The Lord himself could be interpreted to be the Father or Jesus and WITH the trump of God can be interpreted as either the wrath of God or God himself with the voice as of a trumpet.

The main point is that just because Jesus is called Savior and Yahweh says that He is the ONLY Savior does not mean that Jesus must be Yahweh Himself. For you see, Yahweh CHOSE to us a MAN as His Savior. So Yahweh is till the ONLY Savior who saves us from our sin BY using the Son of MAN, Jesus. Did not Yahweh USE the MAN, Moses to save the children of Israel from bondage in Egypt? Yes, Yahweh used a MAN in the Old Testament and Yahweh used a MAN in the New Testament to save the people from their sins. You can also read the in-depth study “TITUS 2:13 WHO IS THE SAVOIR, GOD OR JESUS?”

 

Then sometimes scriptures are combined together to show that Jesus IS God.

 

Look at Philippians 2:8-10

  

“And (Or MOREOVER) being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 

9.  WHEREFORE (Or for this very reason of the Son of MAN becoming obedient to his God even to die of the cross) God (EVEN His God) also has HIGHLY EXALTED him, and (Has) GIVEN him a NAME which is ABOVE every name: 

10.  THAT (Or so that) AT the NAME of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 

11.  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

 

Now compare this verse alongside Isaiah 45:21-23 where Yahweh Himself is the one speaking.

 

Isaiah 45:21-23.

 

“Tell you, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I the LORD? And there is no God else besides ME; a just God and a Savior; there is none besides ME

22.  Look unto ME, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 

23.  I have sworn by Myself, the word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto ME every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” 

 

 

 Reasoning #6, the Trinitarian argument.

 

The first Scripture shows us that every knee should bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. Now, compare this Scripture in the New Testament, that we know without a doubt is speaking of Jesus, alongside the Scripture that is in the Old Testament where Almighty God said that He was God and that there is NO God beside Him, and that every knee should bow before Him and every tongue shall swear that He is God. Now, notice that both Scriptures say that every knee shall bow and in one passage it is clearly referring to Jesus and in the other passage it is clearly referring to Almighty God. Therefore, Jesus IS Almighty God Yahweh Himself. 

NO! That is NOT a correct interpretation of either of these passages of Scripture. Let us take a closer look at Isaiah 45:23 with the Strong’s numbers so you can see which words are IN the actual Greek text and which words were ADDED by the King James translators. The ONLY words that are actually IN the original Greek text have a Strong’s number right after the word that IS IN the Greek text. If there are TWO Strong’s numbers then the pronoun “my” mouth is speaking of Yahweh the creator. But if there is NOT two Strong’s number then the pronoun “ME” is ADDED and could have been translated as the pronoun “him” or not us any pronoun at all.

 

Isaiah 45:23 with the Strong’s numbers.

 

“I have sworn H7650 by myself, (Since we know by the context beyond and shadow of a doubt that the one speaking is Yahweh Himself then the added pronoun “I” is correct but the words “by myself” are not needed. However, they do not change the meaning of the verse) the word H1697 is gone out H3318 of my mouth H4480 H6310 in righteousness, H6666 and shall not H3808 return, H7725 That H3588 unto me every H3605 knee H1290 shall bow, H3766 every H3605 tongue H3956 shall swear. H7650.

 

Now, WHO is the word MADE flesh that came forth out from the MOUTH of Yahweh Himself? In other words, AFTER the spoken word of prophecy that came out from the MOUTH of Yahweh was FULFILLED, who is the fulfillment of the word of prophecy? It is Jesus! And what does the New Testament verse of prophecy that still yet is in the future to be fulfilled say that every knee will bow down to? It is Jesus! So the words “unto me” should have been translated “unto him” or, more precisely “unto us” seeing that Jesus was GIVEN a NEW NAME after the cross. And it will be AT the NAME that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord, in that, Jesus was MADE Lord BY Yahweh AFTER the cross to the GLORY OF Yahweh, Almighty God the Father.

Another example of combining two scriptures to try and prove a point is John 8:58 combined with Exodus 3:14 which is probably the most famous of all Trinitarian verses of Scripture next to John 1:1 and Hebrews 1:8.

 

John 8:58. 

 

“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”

 

Now compare this verse alongside Exodus 3:14.

 

“And God said unto Moses, I am that I am: and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I am has sent me unto you.”

 

Reasoning #7, the Trinitarian argument.

 

Yahweh referred to Himself as being I AM and Jesus also said I AM, therefore, Jesus IS Yahweh Himself in the flesh.

 

Again, NO! This is NOT the correct line of reasoning because it contradicts other verses of Scripture in the Bible. Please read the in-depth study “JOHN 8:58 BEFORE ABRAHAM I AM!” But for now, please ask yourself the following questions. 

 

Question #1.

 

“IF Jesus is quoting Exodus 3:14 the WHICH ‘I AM’ is Jesus saying that he is?”

 

Question #2.

 

“Is Jesus saying that he is the FIRST ‘I AM’ that I am”?

 

Question #3.

 

“Or is Jesus saying that he is the LAST ‘I am” the one PROPHESIED to come?

 

For you see, the FIRST “I AM” is Yahweh Himself who spoke the word of prophecy out from His won MOUTH then He watched over His spoke word of prophecy to PERFORM it and bring it to pass.

And the LAST “I am” is the PROPHECY itself. For you see, there are other translations of Exodus 3:14. Here is a short excerpt from the in-depth study “JOHN 8:58 BEFORE ABRAM I AM!”

Again, in truth, the words “I AM” are NOT God’s NAME. Please watch the first 4 minutes and 10 seconds of this short 6 1/2-minute video before continuing with this study in God's word. You can watch the whole video if you like. The second person in the video is just making some more comments to point out that God’s actual NAME is in verse 15 which is Yahweh, or Jehovah as he likes to pronounce YHWH. I myself prefer Yahweh as being the correct pronunciation of God's ACTUAL name. After you watch the video, then please come back and study the CONTEXT of John 8:58 which proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus never claimed to be Almighty God Yahweh Himself anywhere in the entire Bible. Here is a link to the video and below is the written information in that video if you do not care to watch the video right now.

 

       JOHN 8:58 I AM

       

And here is a written explanation of Exodus 3:14,15 if you do not care to watch the video. Here is Exodus 3:14 in the Greek Septuagint. Now you do not need to read Greek to follow what I am saying. Simply know and understand that the two Greek words highlighted in yellow mean “I am”. These two Greek words convey the meaning I am SOMETHING. So the SOMETHING that God is saying that he is, I will highlight in orange. Please notice that ὁ ὢν, which is the SOMETHING that God is saying that he is, appears TWICE. But the two Greeks words ἐγώ εἰμι meaning “I am” only, appears just ONE TIME. The English translation is below to help follow along.

 

Exodus 3:14 in the Greek.

 

“14, καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων· ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ὤν. καὶ εἶπεν· οὕτως ἐρεῖς τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραήλ· ὁ ὢν ἀπέσταλκέ με πρὸς ὑμᾶς.”

 

Exodus 3:14 in English.

 

“14. And God spoke to Moses, saying, I am THE BEING; and he said, Thus shall ye say to the children of Israel, THE BEING has sent me to you.”

 

In other words, if Jesus would have said, “Before Abraham was,  ὁ ὢν” instead of saying, “Before Abraham was, ἐγώ εἰμι,” then the Trinitarian and Oneness Pentecostal INTERPRETATION of John 8:58 might have some validity. But Jesus did NOT say, “Before Abraham was, ὁ ὢν”. Or “Before Abraham was, THE BEING. Rather, Jesus said. Before Abraham was ἐγώ εἰμι” which again should have been translated as “Before Abraham was, I am [he]” with the IMPLIED or UNDERSTOOD pronoun [he] added for clarity. And if it was correctly translated in this way then the meaning of these words of Jesus would mean that Jesus is saying, I am he, [the MESSIAH] because that is what the CONTEXT teaches us

And another possible translation of John 8:58, seeing that there were no commas in the Greek text, would be as follows.

 

Before Abraham, I was to be

 

The order of Greek words in a sentence is not as important as the order of the words in an ENGLISH sentence. And this translation would agree with interpretation #1 where Jesus was PROPHESIED to be before Abraham ever came into existence.

The truth of the matter is that the translators should have added the English implied pronoun “he” to say, “Before Abraham was, I am [he].” Or they should have translated John 8:58 as Before Abraham, I was to be”. And if they would have done so, then there would not have been any confusion as to the TRUE meaning of these words of Jesus. The words, “I am [he]” would have never been connected with the English TRANSLATION of Exodus 3:14 in the King James Version.

The true meaning of John 8:58 means that Jesus was saying, “Before Abraham was, I am [he]. And this means that Jesus was saying that he is the Messiah, the one prophesied to BE as the CONTEXT clearly teaches us.

 

Here is another example of combining two verses of Scripture to try and prove that Jesus is Yahweh Himself and NOT the fulfillment of PROPHECY. Trinitarian Christians find patterns or groups of THREE to try and prove that God is a Trinity Godhead so that they can try and prove that Jesus is Almighty God Himself in the flesh.

 

Matthew 28:19

 

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

 

Mark 1: 10,11

 

 “And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: and there came a voice from heaven, you are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

Reasoning #8, the Trinitarian argument.

 

Throughout the New Testament, one will see the three persons of God, Almighty God, the Father, God the Son, Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit working together in unity. Therefore, “tri” meaning three plus their “unity” equals the Trinity, tri+unity or a trinity.

Now, I will whole heartily agree that there is without a doubt unity between Almighty God the Father, God’s only begotten SON Jesus Christ our Lord. But, I myself do not see that the Holy Spirit is a separate person from the Father, but rather, I see that the Holy Spirit IS the Father. Please read the study “WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER!” But for now, please understand that the name is singular and that nowhere in the Bible is that Holy Spirit called God unless that God IS the FATHER Himself. And, according to the doctrine of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is NOT the Father.

 

Please consider John 4:23,24.

 

“But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship Him

24.  God is a Spirit: (Or the Holy Spirit IS God) and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

 

 So then, the Holy Spirit is NOT some so-called THIRD person os a Godhead Trinity God made up of three separate persons.

 However, this unity of TWO and the fact that there are actually only TWO do not prove that Jesus IS Almighty God Himself in the flesh.

 So why twist the Scriptures to teach that which is simply not the TRUTH? Why not just teach what the word of God plainly says?

 And that the Bible itself teaches us in SIMPLICITY is that Jesus is God’s SON which is the spoken word of prophecy that was fulfilled and was made flesh. And the word FLESH does NOT mean fully God and fully human at the SAME time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human at the SAME time.

History teaches us that the TWO nature doctrine of the Deity of Jesus came into existence as church “dogma” in 451 AD at the council of Chalcedon. The controversy was between Christians, called Modalist and Trinitarian Christians. The Modalist Christians believed that there is but one God in ONE person. And they taught that Jesus had ONE nature which is DIVINE nature only and thus Jesus was void of any human nature. In other words, the Oneness or Modalist Christians did NOT believe that Jesus had ANY human nature. But the Trinitarian Christians believed that Jesus had TWO natures at the same time, one divine, and one human. And this controversy went on for three centuries until the two nature doctrine was made LAW so to speak in 451 AD by the church council at Chalcedon.

Please understand that Modalist Christians and Trinitarian Christians were NOT the ONLY two groups of Christians. In other words, there were other ONENESS Christians which today would be called Biblical Unitarian Christians. And they believed that Jesus had only ONE nature which was HUMAN nature void of any divine nature. They taught that Jesus was the “adopted” human Son of God in the same way that we are the adopted sons and daughters of God. And when we truly look at the “big picture” of all the prophecies of Jesus we can clearly see that a CHILD was born FIRST and then that HUMAN Son was GIVEN. And then, AFTER the cross that human Son of God was EXALTED and GIVEN a NEW name so that AT the NAME he would be worshiped to the GLORY OF Almighty God the FATHER.


Please read Revelation 3:12.

 

“He that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the NAME OF my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”

 

Prophecy teaches us that Jesus’ NEW NAME is Yahweh our righteousness. For all the Scriptures of the prophecy of the NEW name of Jesus please read the in-depth study “WHAT DOES TAKING THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN TRULY MEAN?” But for now, please read Jeremiah 23:5,6 which is a PROPHECY of Jesus being called by the NAME Yahweh our righteousness DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus in the world to come.

 

Jeremiah 23:5,6.

 

“Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and (He speaking of the King that Yahweh SET to be His King in the world to come for 1000 years) shall execute judgment and justice in the earth

6.  In his days (Speaking of both the first and the second comings of Jesus) Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and THIS IS his NAME whereby he SHALL BE CALLED, (During the day when the government shall be laid upon his shoulders, according to the prophecy in Isaiah 9:6) THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”

 

Can you not see that the Son of MAN, Jesus, the fully HUMAN Son of God was GIVEN this NEW name AFTER the cross and the JOY set before him to ENDURE the cross, according to Hebrews 12:2? If not, then please consider all the CONTRADICTIONS to God's word that the doctrine of the Deity of Jesus teaching that Jesus is Almighty God Yahweh Himself in the flesh during the days of the flesh of Jesus causes with the REST of God’s word.

 

Contradiction #1.

 

Jesus was tempted in all points as a human being, just like you and I, yet without sin. But yet, Almighty God Himself can NOT be tempted, according to James 1:13. Please read the study “37 FACTS ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!”

 

Contradiction #2.

 

Jesus could do nothing in and of himself, according to John 5:19 and John 8:28. But yet, NOTHING is impossible with Almighty God Himself, according to Luke 1:37 and Matthew 19:26. Again, please read the study “37 FACTS ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!”

 

Contradiction #3.

 

It was the Son of MAN, Jesus, that was highly exalted BY his God and Father AFTER the cross, according to Philippians 2:8-11. And an already Almighty God Himself in the flesh would not need to have been HIGHLY EXALTED to be worshiped. Please read the study “PHILIPPIANS 2:6-8 PROVES JESUS PRE-EXISTED!”

 

Contradiction #4.

 

It was the Son of MAN, Jesus that was GIVEN a NEW name after the cross which he never had before because that is what the word “NEW” means. And, according to Exodus 3:15, Yahweh is Almighty God the Father’s name forever. And no other God GAVE Almighty God the Father His name, Yahweh, that He says is His name FOREVER. Please read the study “WHAT DOES IT TRULY MEAN TO TAKE THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN?”

 

Contradiction #5.

 

It was the Son of MAN, Jesus, to which his God and Father COMMITTED all judgment BECAUSE he was the Son of MAN, according to John 5:20-27. But yet, Almighty God Himself will judge the world system BY the MAN who He Himself ORDAINED. It is not logical to say that Yahweh ordained Himself to judge the earth. The word translated as “ordain” means to mark out, to appoint, to declare, to determine, and decree. And this decree was PROPHESIED and fulfilled AFTER the cross. So it is also not logical that God the Father decreed an already pre-existing God the Son to become a man so that the father could judge the world BY a MAN. Please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GOD?”

 

Contradiction #6.

 

Prophecy teaches us that the highly exalted Son of MAN, will only rule for 1000 years and then commit the ruling of the kingdom back into the hands of his God and Father’s hand to be subject unto His God and Father once again, according to 1 Corinthians 15:22-28. And, according to the prophecy in Psalm 110, the one prophesied to come into existence will sit at the right hand of Yahweh UNTIL Yahweh puts all his enemies under his feet. Again, please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?”

 

Contradiction #7.

 

It was the Son of MAN, Jesus who was WELCOMED or invited to sit on his God and Father’s throne as a JOY set before him to endure the cross, according to Hebrew 12:2 and Hebrews 1:9. The word in both Hebrew and Greek that is translated as “GLADNESS” in Psalm 45:7 and in Hebrews 1:9 also means to WELCOME. Why would an already Almighty God in the flesh anoint Himself with GLADNESS to welcome Himself to sit beside Himself on His OWN throne? And then, why would and already Almighty God Himself at the END of the 1000 years in the world to come, commit the kingdom back into the hands of the FATHER and become SUBJECT unto the Father so that the Father could once again be God all in all? Is it not much easier to believe and PROVE by the Scriptures that Yahweh CHOSE to us a MAN that He Himself would create and train up in the way of righteousness to be His Lamb that He Himself provided as the ONE sacrifice to reconcile the world back to himself? Have you ever considered that Yahweh can do whatever He chooses? And if Yahweh chose to MAKE His human Son a Lord, then why do ONLY Trinitarian and Oneness Pentecostal Christians dogmatically insist that it is impossible to be “A” God whom Yahweh Himself MADE to become a God under Himself AFTER the cross? Again, please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?”

 

Contradiction #8.

 

Almighty God the Father GRANTED His Son to sit on his God and Father’s throne, according to Revelation 3:21. And Daniel 7:13,14. So why would an already Almighty God the Son from all eternity past be GRANTED and GIVEN the right to sit on his OWN throne? Please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?”

 

Contradiction #9.

 

Almighty God the Father GAVE the Son of MAN, Jesus, to be having LIFE in himself EVEN AS the Father has always had life in Himself BECAUSE Jesus was the Son of MAN, according to John 5:26,27. But yet, an already Almighty God Himself in the flesh would not need to be GIVEN the divine nature of immortality because he would already be immortal. Please read the three-part study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”

 

Contradiction #10.

 

Almighty God the Father is GREATER than the Son of God, according to John 10:29 and John 14:28. But yet, the doctrine of the Trinity states that the Father and the Son are co-equal in every way where neither is greater than nor less than the other. Please read the study “JOHN 10:30 I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE!”

 

Contradiction #11.

 

Almighty God the Father GAVE the Son of MAN, Jesus, all power and authority to even give eternal life to whomsoever he chooses to be worthy to receive eternal life in the world to come. And all that power and authority was given to him AFTER the cross, according to Matthew 28:18 and John 5:22-27. Now, IF Jesus was truly Almighty God Himself during the days of his FLESH then he would not have needed to be GIVEN anything. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?”


Contradiction #12.

 

Almighty God GAVE His Son COMMANDMENT what to speak, according to John 12:49. If Jesus is God Himself in the flesh then he would not have to have been told what to say or speak. It is not logical to say that one of the two persons who are co-equal in every way would COMMAND the other co-equal person to speak only the words that his God commanded him to speak. Please read the study “37 FACTS ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!”

 

Contradiction #13.

 

Jesus said the Father is GREATER than ALL in the SAME context where he says that he and the Father are ONE, which literally means that they AGREE as one and NOT that they are one and the SAME being. Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that IF this verse where Jesus says, “I and my Father are ONE” TRULY means that Jesus and the Father are ONE and the SELF SAME being, then the DOCTRINE of the trinity is still in error by CONTRADICTING itself because the doctrine of the Trinity plainly states that Jesus is NOT the FATHER.

 

Contradiction #14.

 

Jesus was, is, and always will be UNDER or SUBJECT unto THE one true and ONLY Almighty God, who the Bible clearly identifies as being the FATHER. And thus this one FACT clearly teaches us that Jesus is NOT the FATHER because how can the Father be under and subject to his God and Father?

 

Contradiction #15.

 

Jesus plainly calls Almighty God, the Father, HIS GOD, and HIS FATHER by saying MY God, and Almighty God the Father HIMSELF says to his SON Jesus that he is the GOD OF or the God over his Son Jesus saying EVEN YOUR God has anointed YOU in Hebrews 1:9.

 

Contradiction #16.

 

The very word “Almighty” means that there can be no other God OVER the one being who alone is the Almighty God and the God, and Father OF Jesus is OVER and GREATER than Jesus. So then it is a CONTRADICTION to the word “Almighty” to say that Jesus IS the Almighty God Himself in the flesh clearly see from the Scriptures that Jesus has another God over him. In other words, IF Jesus is the Almighty God Himself in the flesh that the Father can NOT be OVER Jesus because that can only be ONE God is ONE person who ALONE is the Almighty God Himself. And the Bible always clearly identifies the FATHER as being the Almighty God OF Jesus. Please read the studies “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?” and “IS JESUS YAHWEH HIMSELF?”

           

Contradiction #17.

 

Almighty God ANOINTED His Son with the Holy Spirit and with power at his baptism in the River Jordan by John the Baptist and then God SENT His anointed Son of MAN into the world to be the propitiation of the sins of the world, according to 1 John 4:10 and Acts 10:38 and Hebrews 9:14. And it is not logical to say that Almighty God anointed Himself with His own Holy Spirit and POWER. Please read the study “JESUS THE CHRIST!”

 

Contradiction #18.

 

The Son OF God has a BEGINNING and Almighty God Yahweh Himself had NO beginning. And it is NOT logical to say that Jesus was begotten by God WITHOUT being begotten. The very word “begotten” means to be generated or to be PRODUCED. The word “generated” means caused to be brought about by something And the something that is the generator IS the Almighty God who is the SOURCE of everything that exists. The truth of the matter is that the Son of God was created, according to the Scriptures. Please read the studies under the heading >>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

Contradiction #19.

 

Jesus is the BEGINNING of the creation OF God, according to Revelation 3:14.

In other words, Jesus is the FIRST of God’s creation, speaking of God’s NEW creation of righteous immortal humans after they are glorified with new immortal bodies like Jesus was given AFTER the cross.

The Trinitarian “interpretation” of Revelation 3:14 is that God the Son BEGAN the creation of God in the eternity past. But they fail to open their eyes and read the CONTEXT to understand the TRUE sound Biblical meaning of Revelation 3:14. Please read the in-depth study “REVELATION 3:14 JESUS THE CREATOR!”

 

But for now, look closely at Revelation 3:14.

 

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, (Which means trustworthy) the FAITHFUL and true WITNESS, (Jesus became obedient or FAITHFUL unto DEATH even the death of the cross, according to Philippians 2:8-11 in order to BECOME) the beginning of the creation OF God;” 

 

Jesus was made in the IMAGE OF God by becoming the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE, according to Colossians 1:15. And according to the CONTEXT in Colossians 1:18,19 the firstborn of EVERY creature means that FIRSTBORN from the DEAD to become the HEAD of the church of the FIRSTBORN. Jesus is the FIRSTBORN among many BRETHREN. And all this took palace AFTER the cross and NOT in the eternity past. So the fulness of the Godhead did NOT dwell in Jesus until AFTER the cross. Please read the study “COLOSSIANS 1:15 WHO CREATED ALL THINGS? 

 

Contradiction #20.

 

Jesus came to show us the FATHER to be the ONLY TRUE God, according to John 17:1-3, 1 Timothy 6:14-16, and John 14:8,9. Jesus did NOT come to show us himself, according to John Please read the study THERE IS BUT ONE GOD!”

 

Contradiction #21.

 

The INVISIBLE Eternal King is the ONLY wise God, according to 1 Timothy 1:17. Please read the five-part in-depth study called “IS JESUS YAHWEH HIMSELF?”

 

Contradiction #22.

 

Jesus did not biome God’s ETERNAL Son until AFTER the cross, according to Acts 13:33,34. Please read the three-part in-depths study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”

 

Contradiction #23.

 

Jesus had a WILL of his OWN that was different from the WILL of Almighty God, the Father and therefore Jesus needed to become OBEDIENT to do his Father's WILL saying NOT MY will, but YOUR will, be done.

 

Contradiction #24.

 

Jesus did NOT KNOW the day or the hour of his return, but yet Almighty God the Father does know that day and hour of his Son's return.

 

Contradiction #25.

 

Jesus COULD NOT do any mighty work of healing in his own hometown when the Bible says that NOTHING is impossible with Almighty God.

 

Contradiction #26.

 

Jesus could do nothing OF HIMSELF, but rather Almighty God, the Father, by his Holy Spirit DWELLING IN his SON Jesus was the one, who actually did the works.

 

Contradiction #27.

 

Jesus said there is NONE good but the Father ONLY when Jesus himself was addressed as a good master being interpreted as a good teacher. All through the Bible we clearly see that Jesus and Almighty God the Father are DIFFERENT and SEPARATE persons.

 

Contradiction #28.

 

God is HEAD over his Son Jesus. Almighty God the Father is THE ONE GODHEAD in ONE being or one person, who DWELT IN his Son Jesus. “Head” God is the HEAD of Jesus. The Godhead is ONE God in ONE person. Please read the study “JESUS THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY?”

 

Contradiction #29.

 

Almighty God the Father HIMSELF made the Son of MAN become both Lord and Christ.

 

Contradiction #30.

 

Jesus is the HEIR of the worlds to come and we are JOINT HEIRS with Jesus. Now, if so be that Jesus is the creator of the entire universe then why would the creator INHERIT what he already owns. Please read all the studies under the headings >>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<< and >>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

Contradiction #31.

 

Jesus NEVER once claims that he himself is the one true and only Almighty God. In fact, Jesus or any part of God's word teaches us that Jesus is equal to Almighty God.

 

Contradiction #32.

 

Jesus rather plainly states 80 times that he is the Son of MAN. Even when Jesus is addressed as being the Son of God by others, Jesus immediately turns it around and calls himself the Son of MAN. Please read the study called “JESUS THE SON OF MAN” where you will learn why the Bible speaks of Jesus being the Son of MAN twice as much as others refer to Jesus being the Son of God.

 

Contradiction #33.

 

Whatever the “Word” was in the beginning before the Word BECAME or the word was MADE FLESH is not what is in question, but rather what is in question is what the word BECAME when the word of God was SPOKEN by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary, who then BELIEVED and received God's SPOKEN WORD to be DONE in her as God desired to be.

 

Contradiction #34.

 

Jesus PRAYED TO the Father both for himself and for others showing that he depended upon Almighty God, his God, and Father.

 

Contradiction #35.

 

Jesus increased in the knowledge of God and in the grace of God. Jesus also increased in the Spirit and he learned obedience by the things he suffered. In other words, IF Jesus were truly and FULLY God, then would not this be saying that THE one true and ONLY Almighty God was OBEYING HIMSELF?

 

Contradiction #36.

 

Almighty God the Father HIMSELF made the HUMAN Son of God become both Lord and Christ.


Contradiction #37.

 

Jesus is the Son of MAN and God is NOT a MAN neither is God the Son of MAN.

 

Contradiction #38.

 

Jesus was SEEN by men and will be SEEN again by every eye at his return, but NO man has ever SEEN the INVISIBLE God nor can see him.

 

Contradiction #39.

 

Jesus said that men could blaspheme the Son of MAN and it would be forgiven them, BUT if they blasphemed the Holy Spirit, then they would be in danger of hellfire on the Day of Judgment. So WHERE is the FATHER in this verse?

 

Contradiction #40.

 

Jesus was saved or rather redeemed from death so that his body did not see corruption and remain in the grave. This fact teaches us that Jesus was NOT fully the one true God, because God is eternal and cannot die. Jesus dies, which proves that Jesus was the Son of MAN because God cannot die. And to try and explain this fact away by saying that it was only his HUMAN SIDE that died is to ADD to the Scriptures because there are NO verses in the entire Bible that prophesy that the yet coming Messiah would have TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

 

Contradiction #41.

 

Jesus was raised from the dead BY Almighty God the Father, who IS the ONE eternal Spirit. Please see the study “JOHN 2:19 DID JESUS RAISE HIMSELF FROM THE DEAD?”.

 

Contradiction #42.

 

The Bible itself teaches us that Jesus is the mediator BETWEEN God and mankind and calls Jesus a MAN. God is NOT a man neither the Son of man. Jesus is both a man and the Son of man, who is called God BY his God and Father that is THE God over his Son Jesus.

 

Contradiction #43.

 

Jesus himself called his God and Father the TRUE God and spoke of himself as the one that the TRUE God sends or COMMISSIONS. Please read the study 1 JOHN 5:20 JESUS CHRIST THIS IS THE TRUE GOD!.

 

Contradiction #43.

 

Almighty God the Father HIMSELF revealed to Peter that Jesus was the CHRIST and the SON OF the living God. Jesus knew that the scriptures spoke of HIM. Jesus knew that he was the SON OF God, but he spoke of himself as being the Son of MAN. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN”.

 

Contradiction #44.

 

Jesus is NOT the creator even though there are some verses that SEEM to be saying that Jesus created all things. Please read “EPHESIANS 3:9 DID JESUS CREATE ALL THINGS?”

 

Contradiction #45.

 

Jesus was GIVEN all power and authority BY his God and Father AFTER the cross. Before the cross, Jesus had NO power of his OWN, but rather it was THE God dwelling IN him, who had the power. Jesus simply obeyed what his God and Father led him to do and gave to the Son of MAN to speak.

 

Contradiction #46.

 

Jesus came OUT FROM God. Plain and simple Jesus was made, formed, created, and brought forth into existence in the WOMB of the VIRGIN Mary BY the SPOKEN word or SAYING of God. In other words, Jesus is the FULFILMENT of PROPHECY plain and SIMPLE.

 

Contradiction #47.

 

The Bible itself always identifies that Father as being the Almighty God and Jesus as being Lord and Christ. And, according to Acts 2:31, Jesus was MADE Lord AFTER the cross.

 

1 Corinthians 8:6.

 

“But to us, there is but ONE God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; AND ONE LORD Jesus Christ, by (Or FOR) who are all things, and we by him.”

 

So then, from just this one passage of Scripture, you should see that Jesus is NOT the one true and only ALMIGHTY God, who alone is the FATHER.

 

Contradiction #48.

 

Jesus is the FIRST-FRUIT unto God. In other words, there are THREE harvests unto God. Jesus is the FIRST harvest, then we who are IN Jesus Christ AT his coming will be the second harvest. And then, the third harvest will be at the end of the 1000 year reign of Jesus. 

 

Please read 1 Corinthians 15:21-28.

 

“For since by MAN came death, BY MAN came ALSO the resurrection of the dead.

22. For as in Adam all die, EVEN SO in Christ shall all be made alive.

23. But every MAN in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; (Did you know that Jesus is the FIRST OF the firstfruit unto God to be harvested? That is what this verse is saying. Jesus is our BROTHER the firstborn from the dead one to become the firstborn among many BRETHREN) AFTERWARD they that are Christ's at his coming. (In other words, AFTER Jesus we come the second firstfruits unto God at the second HARVEST at the coming of Jesus)

24. Then comes the end,...” 

 

Or then comes the THIRD and FINAL HARVEST of firstfruits unto God at the END of the Millennial reign of Jesus

 

Contradiction #49

 

Jesus was MADE lower than the angels and AFTER the cross he was crowned higher than the angels.

 

Contradiction #50.

 

Everything Jesus is and has was GIVEN to him by his God

 

Contradiction #51.

 

Jesus is the IMAGE OF God and he was MADE in God’s image AFTER the cross.

 

Jesus and Almighty God, the Father, are clearly shown in multiple verses of the Bible that they are TWO separate and distinct beings and that we as believers must believe and HONOR them BOTH in order to obtain eternal life in the world to come. So then, clearly the doctrine of Oneness or Modalism is also FALSE teaching as well because if we do NOT have the SON, then we do NOT have the Father either. We MUST believe in BOTH and there cannot BE BOTH if they are the ONE and SELF-SAME BEING.

If you will patiently weigh the evidence of Scripture and let Scripture interpret Scripture while laying aside all bias and what you have been taught, and you truly want to know the TRUTH, then you will see that all of the Scriptures that have been used to try and prove that Jesus is FULLY God and FULLY man at the SAME time is either taken out of context or have been misinterpreted. 

I assure you that EVERY verse of Scripture that is used to try and prove the doctrine of the Trinity has another meaning. And every verse used to try and prove Jesus pre-existed as Almighty God the Son, the so-called second person of a Godhead Trinity God in the eternity past has another interpretation that does NOT contradict any other verse of Scripture in the entire Bible when those verses are correctly interpreted in the light of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Thanks for reading part three of “THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE-1!” And to go to part two of this study please click on the link “THE DEITY OF JESUS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE-2!” 

Again, 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 that you may be having trouble seeing any other way than what you were dogmatically taught over and over for so long by your church denomination. But I assure you that each and every one of those verses of Scripture used by those who teach the doctrine of the Trinity and the pre-existence of Jesus 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 in the list below then please do not hesitate to write and let me know. Some Trinitarian and Oneness 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 or the doctrine of Oneness when you read those 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.

 

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
