WHY IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THE FATHER?

       

           SPELLING EDITED

WHY IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THE FATHER?


            According to the doctrine of the Trinity, there are THREE separate distinct persons in ONE God.

The doctrine of the Trinity states that these THREE divine beings are the THREE persons of the Godhead, They are called God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, but yet they are NOT three separate God's. Rather, there is only ONE God in THREE separate distinct persons or three separate divine eternal beings.

The doctrine of the Trinity goes on to state that all THREE persons of the Trinity, also called the triune God, are CO-EQUAL in every way where none is less than nor greater than the other. The Son of God is equal to the Father. The Son if God is equal to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is equal to the Father. No person of the one Godhead Trinity God is less than or greater than another person of the triune God. All three are equal to each other.

The doctrine of the Trinity also states that all THREE persons of the Trinity are CO-ETERNAL meaning that ALL THREE persons of the triune God have always existed as having divine IMMORTALITY nature within themselves being self-existing WITHOUT every having a BEGINNING or ENDING. The Father had no beginning. The Son had no beginning. And the Holy Spirit had no beginning.

In other words, according to the doctrine of the Trinity, ALL THREE persons of the Trinity have ALWAYS self-existed as IMMORTAL ETERNAL divine distinctly different and separate beings from each other WITHOUT ever having a BEGINNING or end. And what the Trinity doctrine means by self-existing having life within themselves is that no other eternal being gave them eternal life. But rather, ALL THREE persons of the Trinity have ALWAYS had life in themselves, in that, each distinct person of the Trinity has always been a separate distinct IMMORTAL divine being from each other but at the same time the ONE Eternal God.

ACCORDING TO the doctrine or the teaching of the TRINITY:

 

Almighty God the Father is NOT the Son!

Almighty God the Father is NOT the Holy Spirit!

Jesus, the Son of Almighty God the Father is NOT the Father!

Jesus, the Son of Almighty God the Father is NOT the Holy Spirit!

The Holy Spirit is NOT Almighty God the FATHER!

The Holy Spirit is NOT Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God!

 

Here is a diagram drawing illustrating the doctrine of the trinity:



            So then, ACCORDING to the DOCTRINE or the teaching of the TRINITY, it is made perfectly clear that Almighty God the Father is NOT the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit is NOT Almighty God the Father.

 

But what does the word of TRUTH, 

the HOLY BIBLE itself teach us?

 

From the title of this study in God's word, you the reader, and seeker of the TRUTH may already know MY OPINION. But please know and understand that it is NOT my own OPINION that you should be seeking. Rather, you should be seeking the TRUTH based upon the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Now, in my own opinion, I myself, have concluded that the Bible itself clearly and plainly teaches us that Almighty God the Father IS the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit IS Almighty God the Father. But my just merely telling you this truth will not GROUND and ROOT you in the WORD of TRUTH. You the reader and seeker of the TRUTH must SEE the truth directly from God's word for YOURSELF in order for you never to be deceived and moved away from God's WORD ever again on this subject of the trinity. The Holy Spirit must bear witness with your Spirit that what you read in the Bible studies here at AMatterOfTruth.com are SOUND Biblical studies.

So then, with that being said let us begin this study in God's word using LOGIC along with the clear SIMPLE word of Almighty God. What I mean by this is we will take a closer look at what God's word clearly and plainly states with NO INTERPRETATION needed. And then, we will also use LOGIC or common sense reasoning to compare what the doctrine of the Trinity states to that which the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible itself clearly and plainly states at FACT with no interpretation needed. We must always INTERPRET the unclear verses that NEED interpretation to understand their true meaning in the LIGHT of the clear, plain, and simple verses that do NOT need ANY interpretation whatsoever to understand what they mean.


POINT #1:

 

The birth or the CONCEPTION of Jesus in the womb of Mary

 

HOW does the BIBLE, the WORD of God, say that Jesus was CONCEIVED in the womb of the virgin Mary? In other words, WHO FATHERED Jesus? Did Jesus have ONE heavenly Father or TWO heavenly Father's? 

 

#1. Did Almighty God Himself ALONE Father Jesus?

 

#2. Did the Holy Spirit Himself ALONE Father Jesus?

 

#3. Did BOTH Almighty God the Father AND the Holy Spirit TOGETHER Father Jesus? 

 

WHO does the BIBLE itself say is the FATHER OF Jesus? 

 

Please read Matthew 1:18-25.

 

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this WISE: (Or this is EXACTLY HOW the birth of Jesus ACTUALLY happened ACCORDING to the WORD of Almighty God himself) When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child OF the Holy Ghost.

19. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. (Or privately)

20. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife: for that which is CONCEIVED in her IS OF the Holy Ghost.

21. And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

22. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, (In other words, Jesus was conceived or FATHERED in the womb of the Virgin Mary as a result of the spoken word or saying of Almighty God Himself that was given to his prophet to prophesy or foretell what would be coming to pass)

23. Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (For a deeper understanding of what this verse is truly saying in the light of the whole word of Almighty God, please read the study “Matthew 1:23-GOD WITH US!” But for now, the focus of this study in God's word is for you, the reader and seeker of the TRUTH, to see for YOURSELF that Almighty God the Father IS the Holy Spirit, as in, the one true and only Almighty God the Father and His Holy Spirit are ONE and the SELF-SAME divine eternal invisible being that ALONE has always been IMMORTAL without beginning or end. In other words, the Son of God had a beginning at his virgin birth to become the human Son of God void of any divine nature power of his own. And thus, the one true God is one God in ONE person who alone is that Father that IS the ONE Eternal Spirit. In my own opinion of course. But as you will see, I arrived at this opinion by reading and studying what the Bible ITSELF actually teaches us in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God)

24. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25. And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”

 

So then, the word of God, as recorded in the gospel of Matthew, clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus was conceived or FATHERED in the womb of Mary BY the HOLY SPIRIT of Almighty God the Father. Now let us read the account of the conception of Jesus in the womb of Mary according to the gospel of Luke. Please read Luke 1:30-35 which teaches us that the power of the HIGHEST conceived Jesus in the womb of Mary.


Luke 1:30-35.

 

“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favor with God.

31. And, behold, you shall CONCEIVE in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name JESUS.

32. He shall be great, and SHALL be called the Son OF the HIGHEST:(Now throughout the entire word of God the HIGHEST or the MOST-HIGH God always speaks of YAHWEH HIMSELF, the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God and FATHER of ALL. So then, here in the gospel of Luke Jesus is said to be the SON OF the HIGHEST or the MOST-HIGH God which is speaking of Almighty God the FATHER alone) and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom, there shall be no end.

34. Then said Mary unto the angel, HOW shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

35. And the angel answered and said unto her, The HOLY GHOST shall come upon you, AND the POWER OF the HIGHEST shall overshadow you: THEREFORE ()r for this very REASON) also that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son OF GOD.”

 

Now, for many Christians it does not make any sense whatsoever to try and force Almighty God the Father, who ALONE is the HIGHEST and MOST-HIGH God over ALL, including being OVER his Son Jesus, to be a DIFFERENT and distinctly SEPARATE person from the Holy Spirit. In other words, to many Christians like myself, it makes absolutely no logical sense to have a SEPARATE person of a so-called triune Trinity Godhead CONCEIVE Jesus in the womb of Mary. To Biblical Unitarian Christians it makes no sense the child Jesus to be conceived or “FATHERED” BY the Holy Spirit and then have ANOTHER so-called distinctly SEPARATE divine eternal named God the Father to be his FATHER.

What I mean by this is that the Father is clearly indentified several times in the Bible as being the Father AND God OF Jesus but the Father is never called the Father and God OF the Holy Spirit. So to me, the Holy Spirit’s NAME is the FATHER.

And that is WHY many Christians like myself, say NO to the doctrine of the Trinity! Many thousands of times NO! There are NOT TWO separate persons who FATHERED Jesus. Jesus does NOT have Almighty God as his Father AND a so-called THIRD person of the so-called “TRIUNE” or “TRINITY” God called by the doctrine of the Trinity as God the Holy Spirit to be ANOTHER separate Father of Jesus. The only LOGICAL solution for Biblical Unitarian Christians is to have the Father and the Holy Spirit to be ONE and the SELF-SAME Eternal Spirit.

For you see, the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible itself, speaks of only ONE FATHER of Jesus and ONE God OVER His Son Jesus. I mean, think this through for YOURSELF! It is absolutely absurd to say that Jesus was conceived by TWO FATHERS. Now I know that the doctrine of the Trinity does NOT specifically come right out and teach that Jesus has TWO Fathers. But, according to the doctrine of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is NOT the FATHER. YET the word of TRUTH plainly states that Jesus was CONCEIVED of “CONCEIVED BY” the Holy Spirit.

So then, HOW can this doctrine of the Trinity AGREE with God's very own WORD that clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus was CONCEIVED in the womb of Mary BY the HOLY SPIRIT and at the same time Jesus speaks of Almighty God being “NAMED” or called his FATHER who is the God OF Jesus? I do not know about you but common logic says to ME that whosoever CONCEIVES a child in the womb of a woman IS the FATHER OF that child. Therefore, to ME, the Holy Spirit OF Almighty God the FATHER IS ONE and the SELF-SAME DIVINE ETERNAL BEING as the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER, the HIGHEST or the MOST-HIGH God and FATHER of ALL. Plain and SIMPLE, the Holy Spirit IS the FATHER and NOT a so-called THIRD distinct separate person of a so-called triune Trinity Godhead as the doctrine of the Trinity teaches.

Now some Christians who also do NOT believe in the doctrine of the Trinity argue that the Holy Spirit is NOT a PERSON at all. But rather, to THEM, that the Holy Spirit is just a POWER or some IMPERSONAL force that is USED by Almighty God the FATHER. for a deeper understanding that the Holy Spirit IS INDEED a person, please read the study “WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A PERSON?” But for now, the FOCUS of this particular study is to show you the reader and seeker of the TRUTH that Almighty God the Father IS one and the self-same divine eternal being the Bible calls the Holy Spirit of God. For you see, the Bible teaches us that there is but ONE Spirit and that the FATHER is a Spirit.

If you yourself were a “spirit” being, would you call your very own self-same spirit to be a SEPARATE DISTINCT person from yourself? So WHY then do some Christians dogmatically demand that the Holy Spirit is NOT the FATHER of Jesus when the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, clearly and plainly states that Jesus was CONCEIVED in the womb of Mary BY the Holy Spirit? Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that the doctrine of the Trinity CONTRADICTS the clear plain simple TRUTH of the very word of Almighty God.

Is in not much easier to say ONLY what the word of God itself plainly states as FACT with no interpretation needed? In other words, since the word of TRUTH clearly states that Jesus was CONCEIVED BY the HOLY SPIRIT, then would it not be EASY for ALL to understand that Almighty God the FATHER OF our Lord Jesus the Christ be ONE and the SAME divine eternal being as the HOLY SPIRIT seeing that Jesus himself calls his God and Father a SPIRIT and the Bible plainly teaches us that there is but ONE SPIRIT?

Now some Christians, who are called Oneness Pentecostal Christians, do indeed clearly see that the Father IS the Holy Spirit. But Oneness Christians go BEYOND the word of God to ALSO teach that Jesus, the Son OF God, IS ALMIGHTY God the FATHER Himself as well. However, the Oneness doctrine is NOT what the word of TRUTH teaches us. Those who teach that Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God the Father, IS the FATHER are again called “ONENESS” believers. Another name for this belief that Jesus IS the FATHER is called Modalism. To fully understand WHY the Oneness Christians are in error in what they teach please read all the studies under the heading >>>IS THE ONENESS DOCTRINE BIBLICAL?<<<

Also, some Christians still yet believe that they ONLY have TWO choices as what is made available to them to believe by the mainstream churches. In other words, some Christians have been DECEIVED into incorrectly believing that they have to choose one or the other of these TWO options, the doctrine of the trinity OR Modalism that is also called ONENESS. To say this another way, some Christians are MISLED to think that they must EITHER believe the doctrine of the TRINITY that states that there are THREE persons in ONE God, OR that they must believe the doctrine of ONENESS that states that Jesus IS the Father. And it also states that the Father IS his Son, Jesus and that there are NO other options for them to believe.

 

So the purpose of this study in God’s word is to clearly show my readers and seekers of the truth that there is a THIRD option that I personally believe is the only SOUND Biblical option that agrees with every verse in the Bible.

 

And that third sound Biblical option is called Biblical Unitarianism. Not simply what some call Unitarianism but rather “BIBLICAL” Unitarianism with the emphasis on the word “BIBLICAL”. For you see, there and many different Unitarian groups of Christians, For example, the Jehovah’s Witnesses are Unitarian Christians who believe that the one true God is one God in ONE person who alone is the Father BUT they are NOT Biblical in what they teach about the Holy Spirit or the Son of God as being the creator of all things.

So what I am saying is that there are many different groups of Christ that reject BOTH the Oneness Pentecostal doctrine and the doctrine of the Trinity. BUT all these different groups of Christians teach the same things about who is the Holy Spirit and who is the Son of God. Rather, they only agree on the one point that the true God is one God in ONE person and that one person is the Father ALONE and NOT the Son of God. 

So you see dear children of God, the two mainstream church doctrines called Modalism and Trinitarianism are NOT the ONLY two options for a Christian to believe. So trust me when I tell you that there is a THIRD option out there for you to BELIEVE. But that third sound Biblical option does NOT have a “DENOMINATIONAL” name placed upon itself. They call themselves Biblical Unitarian Christians to distinguish themselves from Unitarian Christians. Please read the study “WHAT IS BIBLICAL UNITARIANISM?”

I myself believe that Biblical Unitarianism is sound Biblical teaching because almost every Biblical Unitarian Christian understands that the WORD of God clearly and plainly teaches in SIMPLICITY that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father and that Jesus is most definitely a SEPARATE DISTINCT person or being from his God and Father, the one true and ONLY ALMIGHTY God and Father of ALL.

And I myself see that the WORD of God clearly and plainly teaches in SIMPLICITY that the Holy Spirit IS the FATHER OF Jesus and that Almighty God the Father IS one and the self-same divine eternal being as the Holy Spirit. In other words, I myself see that the WORD of God clearly and plainly teaches in SIMPLICITY that the Holy Spirit is most definitely NOT a SEPARATE and distinctly DIFFERENT divine eternal being from Almighty God the Father.

So please allow me to explain WHY I believe this to be the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God Himself. We have already seen POINT #1 where we learned that Jesus did NOT have two separate persons of a so-called Trinity Godhead CONCEIVE him in the womb of the Virgin Mary. So now let us take a look at POINT #2.

 

POINT #2.

 

Almighty God the Father IS SPIRIT.

 

And, obviously, it should go without saying that the Holy Spirit is also SPIRIT. And since the WORD of God clearly and plainly teaches us in SIMPLICITY with NO interpretation needed that there is just ONE SPIRIT. Then there is no need to COMPLICATE the word of God by claiming that there are TWO separate co-eternal and co-equal Spirit persons call God the Father and God the Holy Spirit and say that it is a “MYSTERY” beyond human comprehension.

 

Please read Ephesians 4:3-5.

 

Endeavoring to keep the UNITY of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Which is what my own heart is crying out to all Christians

4. There is one body, and ONE Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling;

5. One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6. One God and Father of all, WHO is above all, and through all, and IN you all.”

 

Now it may appear or SEEM that there are THREE, but in truth, in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God we can clearly see that there is ONLY the one Lord Jesus Christ and the ONE TRUE and only ALMIGHTY God the FATHER of ALL, who DWELLS IN us, as in, Himself being the ONE eternal Holy Spirit Himself. We do not have TWO separate distinct divine eternal beings DWELLING IN us as Christians, but rather we are the temple of God. It is the self-same Holy Spirit of Almighty God the FATHER who dwells IN us as believers. God is ONE. God is SPIRIT. Spirit is ONE. The ONE God is the FATHER, who is DWELLING IN us. So, therefore, to ME, the Holy Spirit IS the ONE God and FATHER of ALL.

In verse 6, we can clearly see that the Bible teaches us that the ONE God IS the FATHER who dwells IN US as believers in Jesus as our Lord and Savoir. Therefore, the ONE SPIRIT IS the ONE God and Father because nowhere in the Bible are we taught that BOTH Almighty God the Father AND His Holy Spirit as a separate person from the Father dwells IN us. There is only ONE SPIRIT who dwells in us and that ONE Spirit is clearly identified in the word of TRUTH as being the ONE God who alone is the FATHER. The Bible itself always clearly identifies God as being the FATHER. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?” The Bible also says that God IS SPIRIT. So again, to me, the ONE SPIRIT is ONE Almighty God the FATHER HIMSELF, the HIGHEST, the MOST-HIGH God.

 

Also, consider 1 Corinthians 12:1-14.

 

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

2. You know that you were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as you were led. (In other words, the pagan unsaved Gentiles had a SEPARATE God for everything and Paul does NOT want the gentile Christians to be IGNORANT about the ONE true and only Almighty God who is ONE God as ONE SPIRIT)

3. Wherefore, (Or for this very reason that you Gentile Christians used to believe in a “TRINITY” god) I give you to understand, that no man speaking BY the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord but BY the Holy Ghost.

4. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the SAME Spirit.

5. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6. And there are diversities of operations, but IT (Speaking of the Holy Spirit dwelling in Christians, IT or HE) is the SAME God which works all in all. (Or it is BY the SAME God who works all the works IN all believers)

7. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8. For to one is given BY the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge BY the SAME Spirit;

9. To another faith BY the SAME Spirit; to another the gifts of healing BY the SAME Spirit;

10. To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11. But all these WORKS (Are being done BY) that ONE and the SELFSAME Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will. (Now, when we compare this verse with verse 6 where the SAME God which WORKS ALL in all, then we can see that the SAME God and the SAME Spirit are ONE and the SELF-SAME BEING who IS the FATHER. Keep in mind that Paul is addressing former Gentiles who had many separate gods that did different things and Paul is teaching them about the ONE TRUE God who is ONE Spirit in ONE person who alone is the FATHER. And that the ONE Spirit can DIVIDE Himself to be in every Christian at the same time and still be up in heaven as well)

12. For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. (Speaking of the ANOINTING or the INDWELLING of Almighty God the Father IN his SON Jesus who is called the CHRIST, the ANOINTED ONE and NOT speaking of Jesus the SON OF God himself actually being that one and selfsame eternal SPIRIT himself. I will explain this in greater detail further on in this study when I explain that God is present everywhere. Yes, the church is also called one body of Christ as well but the Greek word translated as “Christ” also means anointing, as in, the anointing of the Holy Spirit who dwells in every believer at the same time. And that is what the context is talking about)

13. For by ONE Spirit are we all baptized into one body. (Teaching us that we are baptized or submerged into the ONE and the SELF-SAME ANOINTING as our Lord Jesus, THE CHRIST or the ANOINTED ONE of God to become one body in UNITY speaking the same things. So then) whether we be Jews or Gentiles, (Or whether we be Jewish Christians who have always believed in ONE God in ONE person or whether we be Gentile Christians who used to believe in a “TRINITY” god)

whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into ONE Spirit. (And that ONE SPIRIT is Almighty God the FATHER Himself who is a SPIRIT and the Father of ALL)

14. For the body is not one member, but many.” 

 

What Paul is teaching us here is that there are not many different Spirits in the ONE God. And Paul uses that body of Jesus Christ in comparison to the ONE Spirit. The church is ONE body but the ONE body has many different members and each member has a different JOB or a different work that the ONE SPIRIT leads and guides each individual Christian to do. And in the same way, there is the ONE and the SELFSAME Spirit who IS the ONE God who dwells in every Christian at the same time DIVIDING as He wills the gift the He chooses to give to each believer. Paul explains HOW this can be in his next letter to the Corinthian church by teaching us that God has given every Christian an EARNEST of God’s Spirit. 

When we are not 100% completely sure that we want to buy a house but we want to HOLD that house as being our home until we checkout that house to see if it meets our standards then we will give an EARNEST deposit to hold that house for a period of time. And that “earnest” money is only a “TINY” portion of the cost of the house. And in the same way, the “earnest” of the Spirit is only a small portion of the whole eternal Spirit.

 

Please read 2 Corinthians 1:21,22.

 

“Now He which establishes us with you IN Christ, and has anointed us, IS God

22.  Who has also sealed us, and given the EARNEST of the Spirit in our hearts.” 

 

The earnest of the Holy Spirit dwelling in us is God’s way of witnessing to us with tangible evidence that He has purchases us to be His OWN. In other words, the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that God has reconciled us back to Himself. And the Holy Spirit IN us lets Satan know that we belong to God now. God is Spirit and the earnest of the Spirit is a PORTION of God dwelling in us. Let us go back to 1 Corinthians 12:1-14 and do a quick review. Please notice how Paul, the writer of 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians, INTERCHANGES the words and phrases to speak of the SAME God is ONE Spirit in ONE person who alone is the Father.

 

Spirit OF God in verse 3.

 

SAME Spirit in verse 4.

 

SAME God in verse 6.

 

BY the Spirit in verse 8.

 

SAME Spirit in verses 8 and 9.

 

ONE and the SELFSAME Spirit in verse 11.

 

ONE Spirit in verse 13.

 

All these phrases in 1 Corinthians 12:1-4 are speaking of the ONE and SELFSAME Almighty God the FATHER of ALL who is SPIRIT. I mean either there is but ONE SPIRIT or there is NOT but ONE Spirit. To ME, there simply cannot be TWO separate distinctly different Spirits when the Bible itself clearly states that there is but ONE Spirit. Jesus said that the Father IS a SPIRIT. And the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 8:6 that to us, as Christians, there is but ONE God, EVEN the FATHER, which clearly and plainly IDENTIFIES the ONE, God, as being the FATHER of all who Jesus says IS SPIRIT.

 

Please read 1 Corinthians 8:6.

 

But to us there is but ONE God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; AND one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, (The English word “things” is not in the original Greek text. This verse is speaking of the all of whosever believes in Jesus are for Jesus and because of what Jesus did at the cross) and we by him.”

 

Now, please read John 4:23-26 where Almighty God the Father is made know to us by his Son Jesus as being a SPIRIT, and that Jesus is the CHRIST or the ANOINTED ONE who God appointed and empowered to be the MESSIAH by his God and Father, the ONE Eternal Spirit.

 

John 4:23-26.

 

“But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in SPIRIT and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship HIM.

24. God is a SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship Him in SPIRIT and in truth. (The LITERAL translation of John 4:23,24 says, “...for the Father seeks such to worship HIM SPIRIT THE GOD…”, which clearly shows us that Almighty God the Father is SPIRIT and not just “A” Spirit. Again, the Bible teaches us that there is but ONE Spirit and that Almighty God the Father IS that ONE Spirit. If you would like to read the LITERAL translation for yourself please click on the above blue link. This is the free online LITERAL word for word translation that I use in my studies along with many other sources as well)

25. The woman said unto him, I know that Messiah comes, which is called CHRIST: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

26. Jesus said unto her, I that speak unto you am he.”

 

In other words, Jesus is saying that I am he, the CHRIST or the ANOINTED ONE, the Messiah that was prophesied to come. And God’s Messiah, Jesus, teaches us that the FATHER is SPIRIT, THE God, who seek worshipers to worship the Father in Spirit and in truth. To say this another way, Jesus is saying of himself that he is the CHRIST, the ANOINTED ONE IN whom the ONE SPIRIT of the TRUE God is DWELLING IN to empower the SON OF God to do the mighty works of healing that his God and Father SENT him out into the world to do to SHOW us the true nature and the true character of the FATHER who is a SPIRIT.

So then, for ME, I see that the word of TRUTH teaches us that Almighty God the Father is a SPIRIT and that the Father DWELT IN his SON Jesus. Then I see that this ETERNAL SPIRIT who DWELT IN Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist, empowered Jesus to OVERCOME sin in order to present himself to his God and Father as a sinless spotless lamb that was slain for our sins. And not only for our sins but also for the sins of the whole word. So that whosoever of the all who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the SON OF Almighty God might be saved. And then, Almighty God the Father would DWELL IN them as well to empower them to OVERCOME sin.

In summary, point #1 is that Jesus did not have TWO Fathers which to me, proves that the Holy Spirit is NOT a separate Spirit person from the Father. And point #2 is that there is only just ONE Spirit, and there is only the ONE God is a Spirit who is clearly indentified as being the Father. This brings us to point number 3.


POINT #3.

 

ONLY Almighty God the Father is said to have always been IMMORTAL

 

God IS SPIRIT. God is eternal. And the Holy Spirit is called the Eternal Spirit. And there is but ONE Spirit. So, therefore, Almighty God the Father is the ETERNAL divine Spirit.

 

Please read Hebrews 9:14.

 

“How much more shall the blood of Christ, (Speaking of HUMAN Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God the Father whom Almighty God ANOINTED or EMPOWER by DWELLING IN the Son of MAN, Jesus) WHO THROUGH the eternal Spirit (Speaking of the eternal Holy Spirit who dwelt in Jesus which Jesus himself clearly identifies as being the Father in John 14:10) offered himself without spot TO God, (In other words, Jesus the Son of MAN, the HUMAN Jesus lived his life WITHOUT sin THROUGH the power and strength that he received by his God and Father who DWELT IN him. Plain and simple, Jesus lived without sin THROUGH the power of the Holy Spirit who dwelt in him who Jesus called the FATHER. And NOW this SAME Holy eternal SPIRIT who DWELLS IN YOU as a believer shall) purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

 

In this passage of Scripture that we just read we learned that the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father is the ETERNAL SPIRIT and that God is eternal. We also learned from John 14:10 that Jesus identified the eternal Spirit who dwelt in him as being the Father. 

 

Please read 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 

 

Now let us read 1 Timothy 6:13-16 where we are clearly and plainly taught that Almighty God the Father ONLY has IMMORTALITY or is ETERNAL.

 

1 Timothy 13:16.

 

“I give you charge in the sight of God, (Speaking of Almighty God the Father. And to us there is but ONE God even the FATHER) who quickens all things (Or who gives life to all things), AND before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; (Again, we see ONLY TWO who are Almighty God the Father AND his SON CHRIST Jesus or the ANOINTED ONE Jesus. In other words, the vast majority of the New Testament ONLY speaks explicitly of TWO, the Father, AND his SON Jesus where we must believe in BOTH to receive eternal life in the world to come. For if we do NOT have the SON then we do NOT have the FATHER either. So then, we are being given CHARGE before BOTH Almighty God the Father AND his Son, Jesus, to do the following)

14. That you KEEP this commandment (The word translated as commandment here in this verse means principle or TEACHING. So then, we are to KEEP this following TEACHING) without spot,UNREBUKEABLE, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15. Which in his times he (Speaking of the first and second comings of Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the Father where God's SON, Jesus) shall SHOW, WHO is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, (In other words, Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the Father came to SHOW us the FATHER, who is the ONLY SOVEREIGN Almighty God, who reigns over ALL including reigning OVER his SON Jesus. To say this another way, Jesus came so that we might KNOW the FATHER as the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who is) the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (Now I know many of us have been taught that Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords which is true. BUT it is NOT the WHOLE TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. The TRUTH of the matter is that Almighty God the FATHER is THE most-high KING who is King over ALL kings including being King, Lord, and God OVER his SON Jesus who the Father has made his SON to become a King of kings and a Lord of Lords. Please read the study Revelation 17:14 WHO IS THE KING OF KINGS? for all the Scriptures that teach what I just said. But for now, just know that the WHO that Jesus came to SHOW us is the FATHER and that Jesus is NOT the Father)

16. WHO ONLY has IMMORTALITY, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto;WHOM no man has SEEN, NOR CAN SEE:(Here in this verse, we are CLEARLY and PLAINLY taught that the WHO that Jesus came to SHOW is the INVISIBLE ETERNAL SPIRIT whom Jesus calls the FATHER. Jesus came to show us the FATHER as being the ONLY SOVEREIGN ALMIGHTY God, who ALONE has always had IMMORTALITY within himself) to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.”

 

So then, since ONLY the INVISIBLE God whom NO man has ever seen, nor can see is the ONLY ONE who is ETERNAL or IMMORTAL and that this INVISIBLE God is ALSO the ONLY one who is SOVEREIGN, which means that he is OVER and above ALL, then this means that the FATHER is the one who is being spoken of in this passage of Scripture. Clearly, men have seen Jesus so this passage of Scripture is NOT referring to Jesus as being Almighty God Himself. Jesus came to show us the Father and NOT himself.

And since there is ONLY ONE who is IMMORTAL or ETERNAL who is the INVISIBLE SPIRIT seeing that God is SPIRIT, then we must conclude that Almighty God the FATHER IS the ETERNAL SPIRIT, as in, the Father and the Eternal Spiirt are one and the SELFSAME eternal Spirit being called the ONE God who DWELT IN His SON Jesus. So then, ACCORDING to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, we have ONLY TWO separate persons or beings and NOT THREE separate persons as those who teach the false doctrine of the “TRINITY” dogmatically demand. The doctrine of the Trinity teaches that there are THREE persons of the Godhead. But in truth, Almighty God the Father ALONE is THE GODHEAD who DWELT IN his Son Jesus according to Colossians 2:9.

 

Please read Colossians 2:9.

 

“For IN him DWELLS all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”

 

This verse is saying that IN Jesus DWELLS ALL the FULLNESS of the Godhead in the body of Jesus. Now, I myself believe that this verse is actually speaking of the highly exalted glorified Son of man, Jesus AFTER the cross. And the reason that I say this is because in Colossians chapter 1, in verse 19, we read that it PLEASED the Father that in Jesus should dwell ALL the FULLNESS. And the CONTEXT is speaking of AFTER the cross when the Son of MAN, Jesus, became the FIRSTBORN of every creature, the first born from the dead, the first born among many brethren.

 

Colossians 1:19.

 

“For it pleased the Father that IN him should all fulness dwell;” 

 

For and in-depth study explaining Colossians 1:15-23 in its context, please read “WHAT DOES COLOSSIANS 1:15 TRULY MEAN?” But for now, let us continue this study on why the Holy Spirit IS the Father. 

Again, John 14:10 makes it quite clear to us that it was the FATHER who DWELT IN his Son Jesus who was the one actually doing the mighty works of healing.

 

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.” 

 

Also, the word of TRUTH clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God the Father, did NOT possess ETERNAL LIFE or IMMORTALITY UNTIL his God and Father GAVE the Son of MAN, Jesus, the same eternal or immortal LIFE that the Father HIMSELF has always possessed from all eternity. 

Please read John 5:15-32 which clearly teaches us that Jesus did NOT possess eternal life UNTIL his God and Father GAVE TO his Son Jesus the same eternal life that the Father himself possessed within himself.

 

John 5:15-32.

 

“The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

16. And, therefore,  did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to SLAY him, because he had done these things ON the Sabbath day. (Here again, we see the Jews wanted to KILL Jesus, but this time it was because to them, Jesus SUPPOSEDLY broke the Sabbath day, at least in the eyes of the Pharisees, when Jesus healed a man BY the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father ON the Sabbath day)

17. BUT Jesus answered them, My Father WORKS hitherto, and I work. (In other words, Jesus is saying BUT I am ONLY OBEYING what my Father is SHOWING me to DO. Further down in this study you will understand that this means that the Father through his very own self-same Holy Spirit was showing Jesus what to do and when to do it and Jesus simply OBEYED the leading of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. In simple words, Jesus was saying I am only doing what Almighty God my Father told me to do)

18. Therefore (Or for this very REASON that Jesus told them that by the authority of God working in him he was told to heal this man on the Sabbath day) 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. (In other words, the JEWS incorrectly interpreted the words of Jesus and FALSELY ACCUSED Jesus of making himself EQUAL to Almighty God by simply calling God his FATHER. All through the New Testament GOD is clearly identified as being the FATHER OF Jesus. But the Jews THOUGHT that Jesus was making himself EQUAL with his God and Father and they sought to kill him. However, as you will plainly see as you continue to read the CONTEXT, that Jesus ANSWERED the Jews false accussation of making himself equal to God in his DEFENSE)

19. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do NOTHING OF HIMSELF, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever He does, these also does the Son likewise. (In other words, Jesus is saying, I am NOT making myself EQUAL with my God and Father because the SON can do NOTHING OF HIMSELF. But I must OBEY my God and Father to DO whatever my Father is DOING. That is to say, whatever Jesus the Son of MAN saw in a dream or in a vision or in the written word of God and whatever Jesus heard the Father say to do by the inward voice of the Holy Spirit, then Jesus simply OBEYED what he knew that the Father was telling him to do. This is what Jesus meant when he said his Father was WORKING on the Sabbath day, and so I also must work the same works that I see my Father doing. Now, to ME, this DEFENSE that Jesus makes right after the Jews FALSELY ACCUSE him of making himself EQUAL with God clearly teaches us that Jesus was in NO WAY claiming to be the great I AM in John 8:58. Nor was Jesus making himself to be EQUAL with Almighty God the Father, because Jesus HIMSELF clearly and plain said that the SON can do NOTHING OF HIMSELF. Further on you will learn that it was the Father DWELLING IN Jesus the SON who actually did the WORKS that the SON could NOT do OF HIMSELF)

20. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.

21. For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he will. (Because the Son of MAN, Jesus, was GIVEN all authority and power to give eternal life AFTER the cross. Simply read the CONTEXT)

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. (In other words, the Bible teaches us that we must believe and have BOTH the Father AND the SON in order to have ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come. But yet the doctrine of the Trinity AND the doctrine of Oneness dogmatically demand that their followers MUST believe that Jesus IS the I AM, as in, Jesus is ONE and the self-SAME BEING as the GREAT I AM that I AM Himself named YAHWEH. Yes, there is absolutely no doubt that Jesus came OUT FROM the one true and only ALMIGHTY God. But this by no means that Jesus IS the one true and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. You see, THE ALMIGHTY God has NO beginning and has NOT been BEGOTTEN, but Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God, was BEGOTTEN or brought into existence. Again, there is no doubt that Jesus came OUT FROM Almighty God. And to me, Jesus intended his word to mean that he came out from God by or through the spoken word of the prophecy of Almighty God. The Bible says that the word was made FLESH. Again, this does not mean that Jesus is Almighty God Yahweh himself. You see in Exodus 3:14, God said, “I AM THAT I AM”, which LITERALLY means that Almighty God said “I SHALL BECOME who I am BECOMING” which could very well be interpreted that Almighty God HIMSELF literally BECAME a HUMAN BEING. Please read the study  “WHAT DOES GOD INCARNATE MEAN?”  That study teaches what the BIBLE ITSELF teaches in clear easy to understand sound Biblical teaching. And sound Biblical teaching does NOT contradict any other part of God's simple word as the Trinity God incarnate doctrine does by wrongly teaching that a so-called eternal God the Son incarnated himself to become flesh by yet remain the fully Almighty God having TWO natures at the same time, one divine, and one human. But rather, in the light of the WHOLE word of God we understand that God alone by himself created all things by his very own spoken WORD. Please read the three-part study called “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON1?”)

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.(All through the New Testament we see TWO in whom that we are clearly and plainly taught that we must believe in, Almighty God the Father AND the SON Jesus. Please read the study “DOES HEBREWS 1:10 PROVE THAT JESUS IS YAHWEH?” for a deeper understanding that the ETERNAL SPIRIT IS Almighty God the Father HIMSELF who is a SPIRIT and that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father, the eternal Holy Spirit)

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. (Jesus has the POWER to raise the dead because the God OF Jesus GAVE his Son this authority, which you will clearly see in the context of this verse that follows)

26. FOR ()r BECAUSE) AS the Father has life IN himself; (Speaking of the divine nature of IMMORTALITY) SO has He GIVEN TO the Son to have life IN himself; (In other words, the SON did NOT always eternally exist with or by the side of his God and Father from all eternity past except in the mind and plan of Almighty God. The Bible says that Jesus was SLAIN from before the foundation of the world yet we KNOW that this was a PROPHECY of Jesus GOING to be slain in the future of when this prophecy was written. Jesus was not LITERAL SLAIN before the foundation of the world was every created EXCEPT in the MIND and the PLAN of Almighty God. Everything that Jesus is or has was GIVEN TO him BY his God and Father the one true and only ALMIGHTY God. In other words, John 1:1 says that the WORD, the LOGOS, or the SAYING was with God in a beginning and NOT the Jesus or the Son was with God in a beginning. Please read the study JOHN 1:1 THE WORD WAS GOD! Also, I believe that it was AFTER the cross when the FULLNESS of the Godhead began to dwell in a bodily form because that is when Jesus BECAME God’s ETERNAL Son and Jesus was GIVEN all power and authority to rule FOR Yahweh in the world to come)

27. And has GIVEN him authority to execute judgment ALSO, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN. (In other words, all that Jesus is or has was GIVEN TO him BY his God and Father was NOT because Jesus IS THE Almighty God, NOR was it because Jesus was the SON OF GOD, but rather the REASON that Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED and GIVEN NAME above all name is BECAUSE Jesus is the Son of MAN who OVERCAME the enemy of God to fulfill God's plan of redemption for mankind)

28. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, (Again, all that Jesus is and all that Jesus has INCLUDING IMMORTAL LIFE and the AUTHORITY to raise the dead and give to whom so ever Jesus wills eternal life was GIVEN TO him BY HIS God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. Remember that Almighty God said I AM THAT I AM, or I will BE what I will BE, or I shall BECOME what or who I am BECOMING. The spoken WORD or SAYING of God LITERALLY BECAME a HUMAN BEING so that Almighty God HIMSELF could DWELL IN this body of FLESH that he created for himself to dwell in, which was the SON OF Almighty God the Father. Jesus was GIVEN all POWER to raise the dead and JUDGMENT to give ETERNAL LIFE to whom so ever he wills, BECAUSE Jesus was the Son of MAN and NOT because Jesus was FULLY God, nor because Jesus was the SON of God, but rather BECAUSE that Jesus was the Son of MAN a HUMAN BEING that OVERCAME the enemy BY the Holy Spirit of Almighty God who DWELT IN Jesus and the Bible clearly identifies this ONE SPIRIT who dwelt in Jesus as being the FATHER. This is what the WHOLE word of God clearly teaches us. The only way that I myself personal see that there can be THREE distinct separate persons is for there to be MORE than just ONE SPIRIT, which CONTRADICTS the word of TRUTH)

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 MY OWN SELF DO NOTHING: (Simply ask yourself the question HOW can the TRUE God do NOTHING in and of HIMSELF? I mean THINK this through for yourself. If so be that Jesus was truly fully Almighty God HIMSELF in the flesh, then HOW is it that THE Almighty God himself in the flesh can do NOTHING in and of himself? The TRUTH of the matter is that Jesus is NOT the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, who is the FATHER ALONE. And it was the Father who DWELT IN HIS SON Jesus. It was and the TRUE God who ALONE is the FATHER that DWELT IN his SON as the EARNEST of the ONE Eternal SPIRIT who actually did the WORKS through the human hands of the ANOINTED Son of MAN, Jesus. Also, ask yourself the following questions. Did Jesus LIE to us here in this verse?. If not, then why would Jesus INTEND his words in John 8:58 to mean that he is saying that he is Almighty God, Yahweh Himself the great I AM?) as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek NOT mine OWN will, BUT the will of the Father which has SENT me. (Now. in all honesty, does this sound like Jesus is saying that he himself is the great I AM or that Jesus is saying that he is EQUAL to Almighty God the Father? Absolutely NOT! Jesus himself clearly and plainly said with absolutely NO interpretation needed that he could do NOTHING in and of himself. Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters, in our Lord Jesus Christ, that IF Jesus were TRULY the Almighty God himself or even EQUAL with Almighty God, then Jesus would have never said that he could do NOTHING of HIMSELF. Jesus always gave all the glory TO his God and Father who DWELT IN him after his baptism in water by John the Baptist. This is when the Holy Spirit came to rest on Jesus and REMAIN. But the FULLNESS of the Godhead did not dwell BODILY in Jesus until AFTER the Son of MAN, Jesus was GLORIFIED and GIVEN the divine nature of immortality)

31. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

32. There is another that bears witness of me; and I know that the witness which He witnesses of me is true.”

 

Jesus did not say that there were TWO other witnesses, but rather, he said ANOTHER bears witness of him. And the other separate being who bore witness of Jesus being the Christ, the SON OF the living God is the Father. The truth of the matter is that everything that Jesus is or has was GIVEN TO him BY his God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, the INVISIBLE ETERNAL SPIRIT who ONLY has always had IMMORTALITY until the day that He gave his HUMAN Son, Jesus, to be HAVING LIFE in himself EVEN AS the Father has always possessed LIFE in himself.

Now, at this PRESENT time, only these TWO, the Father, and His Son Jesus have IMMORTALITY in themselves UNTIL that great and notable day to the coming of Jesus and his Father with him, when Jesus will give eternal life to those faithful believers who have endured until the end. This is why it is prophesied that Jesus SHALL BE called the everlasting FATHER, which in truth should have been translated as, and he shall be called the father OF eternal life BECAUSE God GAVE his SON Jesus the power and the authority to execute JUDGMENT and to GIVE eternal life to whomsoever it pleases his Son to give immortality.

Again, the vast majority of the New Testament speaks of ONLY TWO “PERSONS” or ONLY TWO distinctly DIFFERENT and SEPARATE beings who are NOT ONE and the SELFSAME BEING. And these TWO different persons are Almighty God the Father YAHWEH himself AND the SON OF Almighty God the Father, Jesus or Yeshua. Throughout the ENTIRE New Testament, the writers made very clear distinctions between Almighty God the Father and his Son Jesus, and in all the greetings to the church, we do NOT see any specific clear, plain, and simple mentioning of the Holy Spirit as being clearly identified to be a distinct and separate person or a divine being from Almighty God himself who is SPIRIT, which again would contradict the word of TRUTH teaches us that there is but ONE SPIRIT. In other words, we ONLY see TWO who are distinctly being spoken of as two separate persons. 

And this is one of the reasons of WHY some Christians believe in the doctrine of the trinity OVER the false teaching of Modalism or ONENESS who dogmatically demand and insist that Jesus is ONE and the SELF SAME DIVINE ETERNAL BEING as the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God the FATHER, YAHWEH HIMSELF. Some Oneness believers call or define Jesus a MANIFESTATION or a MODE of God revealing himself in a different fashion of HIMSELF. And they wrongly and incorrectly teach that Jesus is NOT a SEPARATE person or a so-called triune or trinity God. 

Now, there is a LITTLE truth hidden in the Oneness teaching, which is that Almighty God did indeed manifest HIMSELF to literally become a HUMAN being, but as a whole, the Oneness doctrine is a FALSE teaching that simply does NOT agree with the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And one such contradiction is that they dogmatically demand that Jesus IS the FATHER basically transforming back and forth between being Father and Son.

But the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible ALWAYS clearly and plainly DISTINGUISHES the TWO as being Father AND Son and never as being ONE and the SELF-SAME BEING. Oneness Pentecostal Christians call Jesus a MANIFESTATION or a MODE of God where Yahweh revealed Himself in a different fashion of HIMSELF in human form. And they wrongly and incorrectly teach that Jesus is NOT a LITERAL SEPARATE person from Almighty God the Father who is ONE God is ONE person.

Please consider the many greetings given to the church clearly and plainly DISTINGUISHING the TWO as being SEPARATE persons or two separate beings.

Now there are a few verses in the Bible that may SEEM to teach us that there are THREE. But in truth, there can only be found in the light of the WHOLE word of God that there are actually only TWO separate and distinctly DIFFERENT persons, Almighty God the Father, who ALONE IS one and the SELF-SAME being as the eternal Holy Spirit himself, AND his Son Jesus. Clearly, the Bible ITSELF teaches us that Jesus is a SEPARATE PERSON or being from his God and Father, who ALONE is the one true and only ALMIGHTY God that is SPIRIT.

One such verse that may SEEM to some Christians to teach us that there are THREE separate distinct persons in one God is found in 2 Corinthians 13:14.

 

Please read 2 Corinthians 13:14.

 

“The GRACE of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the LOVE of God, and the COMMUNION of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.”

 

Yes, there are three things that are being mentioned here in this verse. But UNLIKE all the other verses that say GRACE be to you FROM the Father and his Son, where Almighty God the FATHER and his SON are sending the ONE gift of GRACE this verse is speaking of three things

Let me explain what I mean. Here in 2 Corinthians 13:14, we have THREE DIFFERENT THINGS, GRACE, LOVE, and COMMUNION being sent from what may SEEM to be THREE different persons. But in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God, we see that Almighty God the FATHER so loved the world that He gave His Son so that those who believe might have COMMUNION with His Holy Spirit dwelling only in true born-again Christians. And as you have just seen in this study, the Holy Spirit and Almighty the Father are ONE and the SELF-SAME BEING. 

Always remember that any INTERPRETATION of a verse MUST, without fail, AGREE with the REST of God's word. And if what one concludes or interprets a single verse of Scripture to mean does NOT AGREE with the REST of God's word, then that INTERPRETATION of that verse of Scripture is in ERROR, incorrect and FALSE. So, therefore, any interpretation the CONTRADICT any other verse in the Bible must be rejected as FALSE teaching. 

So then, what do we do when we have two verses that seem to contradict each other when BOTH verse seem pretty straight forward and they do not seem to need to be interpreted? Well, you have to lay BOTH meanings of both verses aside. Be as “neutral” as you can possibly be and remain open to what you have previously been taught as being wrong. Do not read into other Scriptures what you have previously been taught. Ask God for the TRUE meaning and then continue to read and study the Scriptures. The correct interpretation may not come that same day, that same week, or that same month. But if you do not give up seeking His TRUTH then you can be assured that sometime within that same year, God will indeed guide you to the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God concerning that particular verse and subject.

The literal translation of this verse in 2 Corinthians 13:14 shows us that the communion of the Holy Spirit WITH you, as in, the Holy Spirit is ALREADY WITH us being IN us. In other words, the communion is NOT FROM the Holy Spirit like the GRACE and LOVE is FROM the Father giving us his Son. But rather, we already have communion WITH the Holy Spirit. So actually TWO things are GIVEN and one we already have when we first received the gift of God’s Son. Also, keep in mind that we have been given an EARNEST of the SPIRIT and not ALL of Almighty God dwells in us and communes with us.

You see dear children of God, we commune or communicate with the Father, who is the ONE and ONLY ETERNAL SPIRIT by way of his OWN self-same Spirit. And we commune, praise, give thanks to and worship the Son by the self-same Holy Spirit who DWELLS IN us as believers. In other words, you cannot always INTERPRET what a verse means BY that one verse alone. Again, always remember that whatever INTERPRETATION you conclude that one verse to mean then that INTERPRETATION must AGREE with the rest of God's word. And INTERPRETING this verse to mean that there are THREE SEPARATE and distinctly different persons in ONE God does NOT AGREE with the WHOLE word of Almighty God the Father.

So again, by incorrectly INTERPRETING this verse to mean that there are THREE SEPARATE and distinctly different persons in ONE God does NOT AGREE with the WHOLE word of Almighty God the Father. The word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible ALWAYS clearly and plainly identifies the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God as being the FATHER ALONE. And the Bible clearly teaches us that there is but ONE God who is a SPIRIT and that there is but ONE Spirit, and that this ONE SPIRIT who dwelt in Jesus is clearly identified as being the FATHER who again is the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God. You will see this fact for yourself in a moment directly from God's WORD of TRUTH with NO INTERPRETATION needed. But first, let me finish with this point #3.

The other two verses that may SEEM to some Christians to be teaching us that there are THREE separate persons in one God are Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7, and Isaiah 6:9, which I have a full study devoted to each of these three specific verses. Please read “Matthew 28:19 – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit = TRINITY”, and “1 John 5:7 – And These THREE ARE ONE!” , and DOES ISAIAH 6:9-Holy, Holy, Holy EQUAL A TRINITY? for a deeper understanding that the word of TRUTH only speaks of TWO in whom we must believe in order to be saved.

And yes, there are other verses where the VOICE of the Father is heard saying this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased as the Holy Spirit is descending from above to rest and remain on the Son, and verse, where the angels cry THREE times the word Holy so therefore according to SOME Christians God, is a TRINITY or THREE separate persons in ONE God. But all these examples are unclear in specifically defining that God is a trinity and therefore they just merely ALLUDE to a trinity if so be that you are seeking to PROVE that God is a trinity no matter what. In other words, those who teach the doctrine of the trinity must INTERPRET these unclear verses to make them mean that God is a Trinity.

But you see dear children of God their INTERPRETATION of these verses do NOT AGREE with the WHOLE word of God. Again please read the above-related studies that show the ERRORS of INTERPRETATION by those who teach the doctrine of the Trinity, but for now, let us get back to the study at hand to clearly show that the Holy Spirit is a personal divine being with feelings and emotions and that the Holy Spirit is the one true and only Almighty God the FATHER himself and NOT just a FORCE or a POWER as some falsely teach. In other words, the eternal Holy Spirit is YAHWEH and YAHWEH is the Holy Spirit.

Jesus himself never claimed to be Almighty God or for that matter, Jesus never made the claim to be equal with his God and Father, but rather Jesus spoke of himself as being the Son of Man and the Son of God. Jesus always maintained and clearly taught us that Almighty God the Father was GREATER than himself. The word of TRUTH clearly and plainly teaches us that Jesus is THE CHRIST or the ANOINTED ONE of or BY his God and Father the ALMIGHTY, which means that Almighty God the FATHER HIMSELF DWELT IN his SON Jesus to empower his SON to do the works that the Father sent his SON to do.

The Apostles that were chosen by Jesus never referred to Jesus as God or equal with Almighty God. The early church was very careful to make a very clear distinction between Almighty God the FATHER AND his SON Jesus.

The writers of the New Testament always clearly and plainly in simplicity IDENTIFIED the FATHER ALONE as being God, as in, the ONE TRUE and ONLY God who is THE ALMIGHTY and MOST HIGH God over all other Gods including being THE God OF and OVER his SON Jesus. Please read for yourself what the writers of the New Testament wrote leaving us clear, and plain evidence that proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that the FATHER ALONE is THE God, THE ALMIGHTY, the HIGHEST, the MOST HIGH God, EVEN THE God over his SON Jesus. 

 

Please read 1 Corinthians 8:6.

 

“But to us (Speaking of us as Christians) there is but ONE God, the FATHER, of whom are all things, and we in him: AND ONE Lord Jesus Christ, by (The Greek word “dia” here also means FOR, or FOR the SAKE OF. So an honest translation that AGREES with the whole word of God this verse should read FOR, or FOR the SAKE OF) whom are all things, and we by him.”

 

The English word “things is not in the original Greek text. So this last phrase should read “FOR whom is the ALL of whosever believe and we BECAUSE OF him. Now some Christians, who teach the doctrine of the Trinity and the deity of Jesus have argued their doctrines, saying, “Well that is just ONE verse and therefore just ONE verse does not prove that Jesus is not FULLY Almighty God himself in the flesh and is also fully man at the same time.” When I read this argument, I thought to myself, 'What Bible are they reading anyway to say that this is the ONLY verse in the Bible that clearly, plainly and in simplicity identifies the FATHER ONLY as THE God.'

Jesus himself calls the Father HIS God in John 20:17 and in John 17:1-3 Jesus calls his Father the ONLY TRUE God.

 

Johne 20:17.

 

“Jesus said unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to MY God, and your God.”

 

Now read John 17:1-3.

 

“These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You: (Jesus is prayer TO his God and Father up in heaven right before he is to be crucified on the cross. Jesus knows that the prophecies in the Scripture speak of the Messiah being glorified. So Jesus is asking the Father to fulfill His promises in His word to his anointed Son)

2.  As You have GIVEN him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as You have given him. (Again, the Son of man, Jesus was given all authority and power AFTER the cross to give eternal life to the children that the Father gives to him)

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

 

The LITERAL meaning of the Greek word that is translated as “SENT” means to COMMISSION. And the word “commission” means to give authority and power to someone to accomplish that task that is set before them. Now, Trinitarian Christians have been conditioned to read the word “sent” as God the Son being sent down from heaven. But the truth of the matter is that everything Jesus is and has was GIVEN TO him BY his God and Father the ONLY TRUE God.

The writers of the New Testament in EVERY book of the New Testament with the exception of just the one book, third John, clearly identify the FATHER ALONE as being ALMIGHTY God and only ONE time in the entire New Testament is the Son ever plainly said to be God, which is in Hebrews chapter 1, verse 8. But yet the CONTEXT itself teaches us of Jesus as being “a” God UNDER HIS God and Father. So even is this verse in Hebrews 1:8 AGREES with the whole word of God which clearly identifies the FATHER as being THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, who is above all including being THE God over his SON Jesus as well. Please read the study “DOES HEBREWS 1:10 PROVE THAT JESUS IS YAHWEH?”

Now both Trinitarian and Oneness Christians go immediately to John 1:1 when they hear Biblical Unitarian Christians say that Jesus is “A” God. But have you every TRULY considered John 1:1 as a PROPHECY of the spoken word of God being FULFILLED? What I mean by this is that when we look at the END that was declared at the beginning we see that the Son of MAN, Jesus, was highly exalted and given a NAME that is above every name EXCEPT for the name Yahweh. We see the Father giving the now glorified Son of MAN a throne to rule FOR Yahweh in the world to come as the God of the whole “earth” and not the God of the whole universe. We see Jesus made a little lower than the angels in his first state as a human being. And then after the cross, we see Jesus OBTAINING a NAME that is more excellent than the angels. We see that when God brings Jesus back into the world at the second coming of Jesus that the angels will worship him. And then after the 1000 year reign of Jesus has ended, Jesus will commit the ruling of the kingdom back to his God and Father. So to ME, the Bible clearly teaches us that Jesus BECAME “A” God under and subject O his God and Father who alone is the ONLY TRUE God who has always existed as the SOURCE of all other Gods the He Himself SET or crowned to be Gods. Please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?” 

But for now, let us take a look at every book of the New Testament to see what the Apostles and the disciples of Jesus who were EYEWITNESSES of Jesus had to say about Jesus being the SON OF Almighty God the Father and the Father as being THE God OVER his Son, Jesus.

 

Acts 2:33.

 

“Therefore being by the right hand of  God EXALTED, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he has shed forth this, which you now see and hear.”

 

God is identified as being the Father by which Jesus was EXALTED to sit at his God and Father right hand and from which Jesus RECEIVED the authority to shed forth the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

Romans 1:7.

 

“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our FATHER, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Romans 15:6

 

“That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, EVEN the FATHER OF our Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

1 Corinthians 1:3.

 

“Grace be unto you, and peace, FROM God our FATHER, AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

1 Corinthians 15:24.

 

“Then comes the end, when he (Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the FATHER) shall have delivered up the kingdom TO God, EVEN the Father; when He (The Father) shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”

 

Again, God is CLEARLY and PLAINLY identified as being the FATHER ALONE and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST, who is UNDER and SUBJECT to his God and Father the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God Yahweh even in the world to come. And in verse 28, you can read on your own that Jesus commits the ruling of the kingdom back into the hands of his God and Father. Clearly, Jesus was MADE both Lord and Christ to become “A” God to rule FOR Yahweh in the NAME OF Yahweh in the world to come.

 

2 Corinthians 1:2.

 

“Grace be to you and peace FORM God our FATHER, AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

2 Corinthians 1:3.

 

“Blessed be God, EVEN the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST. Almighty God the FATHER is being identified as the Father OF our Lord Jesus the CHRIST along with being identified as the Father of mercies and also as the God of all comfort.

 

2 Corinthians 11:31.

 

“The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST. Also, the Father is being identified as the God OF Jesus just like we read in Hebrews 1:8,9.

 

Galatians 1:1.

 

“Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, AND God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”

 

Some Trinitarian Christians will argue that Jesus raised himself from the dead by using the one verse of Scripture in John 2:19 but Jesus was prophesying of raising up his “body”, the church, the dead in Jesus Christ from the dead.

 

 Galatians 1:3.

 

“Grace be to you and peace FROM God the Father, AND FROM our Lord Jesus Christ,”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Galatians 1:4.

 

“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”

 

The Son of MAN, Jesus, obeyed the WILL of his God and Father over his own will to die on the cross for our sins. Again, Almighty God is identified as being the Father.

 

Ephesians 1:2.

 

“Grace be to you, and peace, FROM God our Father, AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Ephesians 1:3.

 

“Blessed be the God AND Father  OF our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN Christ:”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST. In this verse, we ALSO see the writer of Ephesians identifying the Father of Jesus as being the GOD OF Jesus. So then, the ALMIGHTY is BOTH the God OF Jesus AND Father OF Jesus.

 

Ephesians 1:17.

 

“That THE God OF our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”

 

The subject of this verse is THE God OF Jesus speaking of Almighty God the FATHER as being the Father of glory who gives us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of his Son, Jesus.

 

Ephesians 4:6.

 

ONE God and FATHER of ALL, who is ABOVE ALL, and through all, and in you all.”

 

In this verse, the writer of the book of Ephesians clearly and plainly identifies the ALMIGHTY the God who is ABOVE ALL as being the ONE God called the FATHER. So then, we see here once again that there is but ONE God and but ONE FATHER OF Jesus. Therefore, when we see that the Holy Spirit IS the FATHER, the ONE God and ONE FATHER OF Jesus who was CONCEIVED or FATHERED BY the Holy Spirit agrees with the rest of God's word clearly teaching us that there is but ONE FATHER OF Jesus. The Bible clearly teaches us that Jesus is UNDER and SUBJECT to his God and Father, who the writers of the New Testament clearly identify as being the ONE God. The apostles and disciples of Jesus always called Jesus Lord, Christ, SON OF God, and the Son of MAN, but NEVER ALMIGHTY God himself. They ALWAYS made it explicitly clear that they are TWO separate distinct persons who are NOT one and the self-same being. Now some may argue that Jesus said that he and the Father are ONE and then INTERPRET that verse to mean that they are one and the self-same being, but this is NOT what that verse is truly saying in the light of the WHOLE word of God. Please read the study “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE!” But for now, let us continue the study at hand. Again, every book in the New Testament clearly identifies the one true and only Almighty God as being the FATHER except for 3 John. But seeing that both 1 John and 2 John identify God as being the Father then every writer of the New Testament understood and taught that ONLY the Father is the one true God.

 

Ephesians 5:20.

 

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Ephesians 6:23.

 

“Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Philippians 1:2.

 

“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Philippians 2:11.

 

“And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, TO the glory OF God the Father.”

 

In this verse, the writer teaches us that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, and NOT that Jesus is THE ALMIGHTY YAHWEH HIMSELF. So once again THE ALMIGHTY God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST. Also, notice that it is always TO the GLORY of the FATHER.

 

Philippians 4:20.

 

“Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

In this verse, we again see the FATHER as being God.

 

Colossians 1:2.

 

“To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Colossians 1:3.

 

“We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,”

 

Again, this verse could be saying that God is the God OF Jesus and the FATHER OF Jesus, which does agree with the rest of God's word.

 

1 Thessalonians 1:1.

 

“Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father AND in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

1 Thessalonians 1:3.

 

“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

1 Thessalonians 3:11.

 

“Now God HIMSELF and our Father, AND our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.”

 

Here in this verse, we see the writer clearly identifying the ONE true God HIMSELF as being the FATHER and again identifying Jesus as being both LORD and CHRIST. And, according to Acts 2:36, it was God HIMSELF who MADE Jesus to be both Lord and Christ.

 

1 Thessalonians 3:13.

 

“To the end he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, EVEN our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

2 Thessalonians 1:1.

 

“Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ:”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

2 Thessalonians 1:2.

 

“Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

2 Thessalonians 2:16.

 

“Now our Lord Jesus Christ HIMSELF, AND God, EVEN our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,”

 

In this verse, the writer seems to go out of his way to clearly identify Jesus HIMSELF as being Lord and Christ and God as being EVEN the FATHER, as in, the Father ALONE being the Almighty God.

 

1 Timothy 1:2.

 

“Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father AND Jesus Christ our Lord.”

 

Once again our LORD is identified as being Jesus Christ and our God and being the FATHER.

 

2 Timothy 1:2.

 

“To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Titus 1:4.

 

“To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

Philemon 1:3.

 

“Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

James 1:27.

 

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

 

James 3:9.

 

“Therewith bless we God, EVEN the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.”

 

In this verse, like in 1 Corinthians 8:6, the writer EMPHASIZES God being SOLELY identified as being the FATHER ALONE that he says EVEN the FATHER.

 

1 Peter 1:2.

 

“Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.”

 

1 Peter 1:3.

 

“Blessed be the God AND Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

 

Here again, the Almighty is being identified as the God OF Jesus as well as the Father of Jesus. And Jesus is identified as Lord and Christ.

 

2 Peter 1:17.

 

“For he (Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the FATHER) received from God the Father honor and glory when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved SON, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

Jesus RECEIVED Lordship FROM Almighty God the Father. Everything Jesus is or has was GIVEN o him BY Yahweh, the FATHER, who is the God OF Jesus. The Father MADE the Son of MAN, Jesus to be our Lord and our God AFTER the cross. Some Christians argue that Jesus is called Lord before the cross but you have to remember that the New Testament was written AFTER the fact as a record and not as a moment by moment LIVE recording. That is why it SEEMS that Jesus was given eternal life before the cross. But that would make no sense because if Jesus had eternal life before the cross then eternal life does not mean eternal LIFE. 

 

2 John 1:3.

 

“Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, FROM God the Father, AND FROM the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son OF the Father, in truth and love.”

 

Again, God is identified as the FATHER and Jesus as being LORD and CHRIST.

 

2 John 1:9.

 

“Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has BOTH the Father AND the Son.”

 

In this verse, we clearly see that we must without fail believe in BOTH Almighty God the Father AND in his SON Jesus. Now to ME, if so be that the word of God truly taught the doctrine of the Trinity, then this verse would have been the ideal place to ADD the Holy Spirit and clearly teach us that we must believe in all THREE rather than believing in ONLY the Father AND the Son. To understand the true meaning of the doctrine of Christ please read the study “JESUS THE CHRIST!”

 

Jude 1:1.

 

“Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father AND preserved IN Jesus Christ, and called:”

 

Again, the FATHER alone is identified as being God.

 

Revelation 1:6.

 

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

 

In the four gospels, Jesus HIMSELF identifies the one TRUE God and being the FATHER. Jesus identifies God as being the CREATOR. Jesus identifies the Father as being HIS God and Father. Please read John 17:3 again, which is where Jesus is praying TO his God and Father up in heaven and clearly identifies the Father as being the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God.

 

John 17:3.

 

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

 

In other words, Jesus is praying to his God and FATHER saying, THIS is eternal life or the only way to obtain eternal life in the world to come so that all who believe in the SON of God will know YOU FATHER as the ONE and ONLY TRUE God, AND that I, Jesus, am your SON whom YOU have ANOINTED and whom you have SENT out into the world to do your will. We must believe in BOTH the Father AND the Son in order to receive eternal life. And by claiming that Jesus is Yahweh HIMSELF is making Jesus be one and the self-same being as the Father. Jesus is the IMAGE OF the Father, Jesus preached in the NAME OF the Father. Jesus is the REPRESENTATIVE OF the Father who alone is the ONLY TRUE God. Yes, Jesus is “A” God under and subject TO his God who MADE him become the Lord of the Sabbath.

In 1 John 4:9-15 we can see in verse 9 that God sent his only begotten SON and in verse 14 we can see that the FATHER sent his SON which again clearly shows us that God is the FATHER ALONE.

 

1 John 4:9-15.

 

“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God SENT His only begotten SON into the world, that we might live through him.

10. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12. No man has seen God at any time. (And clearly, many men have indeed seen Jesus) If we love one another, God dwells IN us, and his love is perfected in us.

13. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

14. And we have seen and do testify that the Father SENT the Son to be the Savior of the world.

15. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the SON OF God, God dwells IN him, and he in God.”

 

Please notice that nowhere in the word of God are we ever clearly and plainly taught that we must believe that Jesus IS the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God YAHWEH HIMSELF, but we are clearly and plainly taught that we are the believe and CONFESS that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father who SENT his SON out into the world to be the atonement for our sins.

Also, notice that nowhere in the entire word of God are we ever taught in clear plain in simplicity that we must believe that God is a TRINITY, a triune being, or THREE persons in ONE God.

And nowhere is the Bible are we taught that we must believe that Jesus IS the FATHER.

But again, the word of TRUTH does indeed clearly and plainly teach us that we MUST believe that Jesus is the SON OF Almighty God the Father. We must believe that Jesus is the CHRIST, the ANOINTED one of Almighty God the Father. We must believe that Jesus suffered and died for our sin and that God our Father raised his Son from the dead.

So then, the ONLY book in the ENTIRE New Testament that does not clearly and plainly identify the one true and only Almighty God as being the FATHER is 3 John, which does not even mention either God or his Son Jesus.

So why then do some Christians DOGMATICALLY demand and insist on taking some isolated scriptures out of their context and try and force them to say that Jesus IS God, as in, Jesus being FULLY ALMIGHTY God HIMSELF and fully man at the SAME time? Please read THE DEITY OF JESUS AND THE TRINITY and “JESUS THE SON OF MAN” for a deeper understanding is this controversial subject in God's word. Also please read “JESUS THE CHRIST”, and “JESUS OUR FELLOW SERVANT”. In these studies, I will address the verses of Scripture that are used by those that teach that Jesus is God in the flesh. My desire for you is that you be not DECEIVED and that you come to the knowledge of the TRUTH, so that you will not be overcome by the enemy and do the works that Jesus did. I do indeed teach that Almighty God HIMSELF LITERALLY became FLESH and dwelt among man. However, I do NOT teach this sound Biblical teaching in the WAY that the mainstream churches TWIST the truth of Jesus being GOD INCARNATE. Please read the study "WHAT DOES GOD INCARNATE MEAN?" to what the Bible itself ACTUALLY teaches on this subject.

One of the reasons that I step out and teach this highly controversial subject is that I see people, who will NOT even give God a chance BECAUSE of this man one man-made DOCTRINE of the Trinity. I have actually heard someone say to me personally that they would believe in God IF it was NOT for this three in one and one in three Trinity DOCTRINE that they could NOT understand. Now, at that time, I was not yet a true born-again Christian but I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church which teaches that the doctrine of the Trinity is a “MYSTERY”. But yet the Bible teaches us in SIMPLICITY. We are given to KNOW the things of God by His Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth. So I have to wonder if the leaders of the church who formed the doctrine of the Trinity even had the Spirit of God dwelling in them. For you see, it took over three hundred years to finally force their man-made doctrine upon the church. 

The truth of the matter is that even many Christians who sincerely believe and teach the man-made DOCTRINE of the Trinity do not truly understand it either. And they have great difficulty in trying to explain it to others. I have heard MANY Christians say that it is a MYSTERY and we are NOT meant to UNDERSTAND how God can be three separate persons in one God and we just have to accept this teaching by faith.

Now IF a doctor would say to you that he did NOT UNDERSTAND the human body and that you just have to BELIEVE and TRUST him to operate on you, then would you just BLINDLY trust your LIFE in his hands? I think not! You would be more likely to seek out another doctor who did UNDERSTAND the human body.

How much more important is your reward of ETERNAL LIFE to be trusted in the hands of those who tell you that they themselves do NOT UNDERSTAND the doctrine of the trinity and dogmatically demand that YOU must believe it or die in your sins?

For ME personally, if I MYSELF do not see it in the WORD of God for MYSELF, then I do NOT blindly accept ANY teaching from any church denomination. So another reason why I myself do NOT believe in the doctrine of the trinity OR the oneness doctrine sometimes called Modalism is because they are NOT clearly and plainly taught in the WORD of TRUTH, the Holy Bible in SIMPLICITY. And both of these man-made THEORIES contradict many other parts of God's word.

So then, WHY DOGMATICALLY teach that Jesus IS ALMIGHTY God Himself in the flesh when there are NO verses of scripture in the Bible that COMMANDS us to BELIEVE that Jesus is FULLY Almighty God and FULLY man at the SAME time. WHY go BEYOND the clear, plain, and simple word of God and dogmatically demand Christians to believe doctrines that are NOT clearly STATED in the Bible. Why not just say and teach ONLY what is clearly taught to us in the Bible itself in SIMPLICITY. God is NOT the author of CONFUSION so any doctrine that is CONFUSING to you beware seeing that the DEVIL is the author of CONFUSION.

However, on the other hand, there are verses that CLEARLY and PLAINLY teach us that we must believe that Jesus is the SON OF God is SIMPLICITY with absolutely NO INTERPRETATION needed to understand these clear statements of FACT found in the Bible. 

But my main point of focus in this study is to show that the WHOLE word of Almighty God clearly teaches us that the Holy Spirit is a PERSON, but NOT the THIRD person of the “TRINITY”, but rather that the Holy Spirit IS Almighty God the FATHER himself, because the vast majority of the New Testament teaches us of ONLY TWO, the Father and the SON, as opposed to teaching us that we must believe in THREE in order to receive ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.

 

Please consider 2 John 1:8-10.

 

“Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. (Speaking of eternal life in the world to come)

9. Whosoever transgresses, and abides NOT in the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, (Or in the teaching of the ANOINTING or the ANOINTED ONE Jesus) has NOT God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has BOTH the Father AND the Son

10. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:”

 

Again, we see just the TWO in whom we must believe, the Father AND the Son. I mean if the Bible truly taught the God is a Trinity God and that we MUST, without fail, believe in THREE, then this would have been the PERFECT place to make this man-made teaching of the Trinity crystal clear to us. But the word of TRUTH here clearly teaches us that we must believe in ONLY TWO who are the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is NOT mentioned because the Apostles of Jesus clearly understood that Almighty God is the ETERNAL HOLY SPIRIT who DWELT IN his SON Jesus.

Also, please consider Matthew 12:25-32 where again we see ONLY TWO, but this time we see Jesus and the SPIRIT of God that DWELLS IN him to empower Jesus to cast out devils and heal the sick. This brings us to point #4.

 

POINT #4.

 

The PRESENCE of ALMIGHTY God YAHWEH HIMSELF dwelling in Jesus first and now dwelling in us, as Christians.


Please notice as you read Matthew 12:25-32 that we do NOT see the Father being mentioned at all. And that is because the Holy Spirit IS the Father who is dwelling IN Jesus as an EARNEST of God's Spirit that Jesus likens to the “finger” of God.


Matthew 12:25-32.


“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

26. And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

27. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.

28. But if I cast out devils BY the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. (Now compare Scripture with Scripture. Let the Holy Spirit bring to your remembrance of when Jesus said, I can do nothing of myself and when on to say that it was the Father DWELLING IN him who did the works of healing and casting out devils and raising the dead. So then, we know that ONLY ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT dwelt in Jesus. Almighty God the Father IS SPIRIT. The Holy SPIRIT IS SPIRIT. There is just ONE SPIRIT. Therefore, to me, the only logical conclusion to draw that does NOT contradict any other part of God's word is that the FATHER IS the HOLY SPIRIT and the HOLY SPIRIT IS the FATHER, the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God YAHWEH Himself)

29. Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? And then he will spoil his house.

30. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not with me scatters abroad.

31. Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

32. And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of MAN, it shall be forgiven him: BUT whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall NOT be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”


Again, the reason why Almighty God the Father is NOT mentioned here in this passage of is that the Holy Ghost or the Holy SPIRIT IS the FATHER. The Bible clearly teaches us that there is just ONE SPIRIT and that Almighty God the Father is a SPIRIT. Therefore, this ONE ETERNAL HOLY SPIRIT IS Almighty God the FATHER himself. Jesus likened the Holy Spirit dwelling in him to be the “finger” of God. To me, this speaks of Jesus having a PORTION of the Eternal Spirit dwelling in him during the days of his ministry. And it was AFTER the cross that Yahweh gave Jesus the Spirit WITHOUT MEASURE so that the FULLNESS of the Godhead dwelt in Jesus BODILY. Jesus was the first human being to become a partaker of the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY which also promises to us as well. Please read the study “WHAT DOES FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE MEAN?”

Sometimes we hear the pastor preach sermons over and over that we just blindly accept them as being the very WORD of Almighty God Himself. For example, I heard a sermon where the preacher said and I quote, “You can blaspheme the FATHER, and you can blaspheme the SON, but if you blaspheme the HOLY SPIRIT, then you are in danger of hell fire.” You guessed it, he was teaching the doctrine of the Trinity, and the pastor added or he INSERTED the blaspheming of the Father in order to make THREE when the word of God only speaks of TWO. The writers of the New Testament knew and understood that the Father IS the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit IS the Father, which completely exposes the ERROR of INTERPRETATION of the Scriptures of those Christians who dogmatically demand and insist that God is THREE separate persons in one God.

Please do NOT misunderstand what I am saying! I am NOT saying that Almighty God is TWO separate persons in ONE God, but rather I am saying is that the ONE true and ONLY Almighty God is the FATHER. who IS the ETERNAL Holy Spirit? I am saying that Jesus BECAME “a” God as a REWARD because of his obedience unto death on the cross. And for that very REASON, his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTED his SON Jesus to rule and reign at his Father's side. That is what the WHOLE word of God teaches in a nutshell so to speak. Please read the study “OUR GOD IS ONE!”, but for now, let us continue this study with point #4. In Genesis 3:8 we read that Adam and Eve walked in the PRESENCE of Almighty God their creator.


Genesis 3:8.


“And they heard the voice of the LORD God (YHWH or YAHWEH sometimes rendered Jehovah in some Bibles, but always refers to Almighty God the creator. I prefer Yahweh. And for the reason why I prefer Yahweh over Jehovah please read the study “IS JEHOVAH GOD’S TRUE NAME?”) walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the PRESENCE of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.”


Now, while no man has actually SEEN Almighty God the Father the eternal INVISIBLE SPIRIT does not mean that God's PRESENCE cannot be FELT or HEARD or made known like the burning bush that was not being consumed by the fire.

In Exodus 33:14 we read that the PRESENCE of Almighty God was WITH Moses and the people of God giving them peace and showing the DIFFERENCE between God's people and the rest of the world.


Exodus 33:14.


“And he said, MY presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.”


Then in Psalm 51:11, we see David praying to God asking God for forgiveness and pleading with God to NOT take his HOLY SPIRIT from him speaking of the PRESENCE of Almighty God being taken away from David.


Psalm 51:11.


“Cast me not away from YOUR PRESENCE; and take not YOUR HOLY SPIRIT from me.”


So the PRESENCE of Almighty God YAHWEH IS his very OWN SELFSAME BEING that the Bible calls the Holy Spirit OF God. Not some SEPARATE PERSON that BELONGS to Almighty God, but rather the essence of what God Himself IS which is SPIRIT who Jesus teaches us to call FATHER when we pray.

In Psalm 139:7 we read that there is nowhere anyone can go where the SPIRIT and the PRESENCE of YEHWEH is not there. Almighty God is OMNIPRESENT and the Holy Spirit is OMNIPRESENT but Jesus the SON OF Almighty God the Father is NOT OMNIPRESENT.


Psalm 139:7.


“Whither shall I go from YOUR SPIRIT? Or whither shall I flee from YOUR PRESENCE?”


Almighty God is PRESENT with us by DWELLING IN us and the Bible calls this PRESENCE of God as his SPIRIT being IN us.

So again, we have ONLY TWO SEPARATE distinctly different persons or beings which are Almighty God the Father AND his SON, Jesus, because the Holy Spirit is one and the SELF SAME divine eternal SPIRIT as the Father. Now while it SEEMS that the Father and his Holy Spirit are two SEPARATE persons, in TRUTH they are ONE and the SELFSAME SPIRIT.

According to the WHOLE word of Almighty God, there are NOT THREE separate persons, but rather TWO completely SEPARATE and distinctly different persons or beings. And they are Almighty God the FATHER AND his SON Jesus. The FATHER is NOT the SON and the SON is NOT the FATHER. Yes BOTH are God, but ONLY the FATHER ALONE is the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God, who is THE God OVER his SON Jesus, and Jesus has been made to BECOME a God BY his God and Father, BECAUSE his SON Jesus overcame the enemy and cleared his God and Father's name. Please read the study “UNDERSTANDING WHY?” for a deeper understanding of WHY God needed to keep his PLAN of salvation a SECRET plus answering many other questions of WHY like why does God allow evil in the world?


POINT #5.


If you LIE to the Holy Spirit who is DWELLING IN you, then the word of God says that you are lying to Almighty God the Father Himself.


Please read Acts 5:1-11.


“But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

2. And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

3. But Peter said, Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

4. Whiles it remained, was it not your own? and after it was sold, was it not in your own power? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied unto men but unto God.

5. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

6. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

7. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.

8. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether you sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.

9. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that you have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry you out. (I believe that Lord here refers to Yahweh Himself and NOT to Jesus because the SAME Spirit who dwelt in Jesus now dwells in us. But for those who dogmatically demand the Lord here is Jesus himself then please know and understand that Yahweh GAVE the Son of MAN, Jesus the power and the authority to baptize believe with the Holy Spirit)

10. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

11.  And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many, as heard these things.”


Here in this passage of Scripture, we see that the writer of the book of Acts INTERCHANGES that words God, the Spirit of the Lord, and the Holy Spirit while speaking of the ONE God who alone is ALMIGHTY God the FATHER.


POINT #6.


The Holy Spirit is the COMFORTER and God the Father is the God of all COMFORT. NOT TWO different persons who comfort, but rather ONE and the SELF-SAME eternal SPIRIT who is the God of all COMFORT.


The following four verses speak of Almighty God sending ANOTHER comforter speaking of the Holy Spirit. Now, those who teach the doctrine of the Trinity INTERPRET these four verses of Scripture to mean a THIRD SEPARATE person of the ONE God because of the word “ANOTHER”. And when one FOCUSES only on the word “another” then it does SEEM to be saying a DIFFERENT person other than the SON OF God and Almighty God the Father. But the CONTEXT teaches us that Jesus is leaving and God is sending another to take the place of Jesus as our HELPER. Let us read these four verses one at a time first and then I will explain what they are truly saying to us.


John 14:16.


“And I will pray to the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;”


Now while the word “ANOTHER” can mean and does, in this case, mean a DIFFERENT comforter this does NOT prove that the Holy Spirit is a SEPARATE distinctly DIFFERENT PERSON from Almighty God the Father to create a THIRD person of the so-called TRINITY God. The word “ANOTHER” comforter simply speaks of another other than Jesus who is going away to the Father AFTER Jesus suffers and dies on the cross. I will explain more on this in a moment after we read all four verses because they all tie together.


John 14:26.


But the Comforter, which IS the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”


This verse makes it crystal clear to us that the Comforter is speaking of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father. And from the EVIDENCE of the WHOLE word of God that we have seen thus far teaches us that ALL the evidence clearly and plainly shows us that Almighty God the Father IS the ONE and ONLY ETERNAL Spirit and NOT ANOTHER completely SEPARATE person distinctly different from the Father. The “EARNEST of the Spirit is NOT a portion of ANOTHER Spirit who is separate from the Spirit who IS the FATHER. There is only ONE Spirit who Jesus himself says in the Father. So then, the word “ANOTHER” simply means that the Father will send the EARNEST of His OWN being of Spirit as our HELPER.


John 15:26.


“But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send unto you FROM the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which PROCEEDS FROM the Father, He shall testify of me:”


The word that is translated “FROM” literally means “OUT FROM” or “OUT OF” the Father. It is just common sense that when Almighty God the Father comes to DWELL IN a believer that not ALL of His Spirit being proceeds OUT FROM himself, his very OWN selfsame being to DWELL in a believer. The Bible says that we receive and EARNEST of the Holy Spirit, which teaches us that the PORTION of the Holy Spirit that we receive as believers in Jesus is a SMALL down payment so to speak of what we shall receive in the world to come.


John 16:7.


“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”


The going away that Jesus is speaking of is his FIRST going away to the CROSS in order to cleanse us of all our sins so that WE can have the FATHER come and DWELL IN us as the Father was DWELLING in his Son Jesus to empower his Son to do the works that his God and Father sent him to do. Please read the study called “THE POWER AND THE AUTHORITY FO THE BELIEVER!” for a deeper understanding of the INDWELLING PRESENCE and POWER of Almighty God the Father HIMSELF in us as believers. The Holy Spirit is NOT some power used by God, but rather, the power comes FROM the Holy Spirit.

This INDWELLING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God the Father does NOT make us to BE Almighty God himself, and neither did the INDWELLING of Almighty God the Father IN his Son Jesus make Jesus to BE Almighty God HIMSELF. The INDWELLING of Almighty God himself IN us as believers simply means that we have been ENDUED with POWER from on high to overcome sin and to do the SAME WORKS that Jesus did THROUGH the ETERNAL Spirit of his God and Father who DWELT IN him. 

Now it is on this particular point that a dear brother in our Lord Jesus Christ wrote to me saying that it just does NOT make SENSE, to him, HOW God can SEND HIMSELF. In the email, this brother wrote to me saying that he is sending ANOTHER email to me. So I used that example of him sending me a PORTION of his thoughts to me. And if he were to come IN PERSON to visit me, then he would NOT say that he was SENDING himself to visit me. But he still did not grasp what the Bible is saying. In other words, this point on God SENDING the Holy Spirit was a stumbling block to HIM and it may be to others as well. If so, FIRST you need to keep in MIND ALL the other points while you read HOW God does not actually SEND HIMSELF ANYWHERE seeing that God is already PRESENT EVERYWHERE being a SPIRIT.

You see dear children of God, much like the human body speaks or communicates to ITSELF telling different areas of the body to move either an arm or a hand, then that part of the self-same body obeys what it is told to do by the mind or the brain or the HEAD of the body. Well, in like manner Almighty God the Father is the HEAD or the Godhead of his very own self-same SPIRIT body is speaking to or communicating to his very own self-same SPIRIT. In some of my other studies, I said to my readers to think of God as we know and understand AUTHORITY. Think of the Father as being the HEAD or the Godhead over his Son Jesus and over his very own self-same SPIRIT being like our mind controls our own bodies. Remember that the Bible itself does NOT say that Jesus is the second person of the Godhead, but rather that all the fullness of the Godhead DWELT IN Jesus. God DWELLING IN us does NOT make us to BE part of the Godhead, but rather, It SIMPLY means that the Godhead is DWELLING IN us.

So then, with God being SPIRIT and there being only ONE SPIRIT and SPIRIT being PRESENT everywhere being firmly kept in your mind, let us now take a closer look at the Greek word “PEMPO” Strong's number 3992, that was TRANSLATED as “SEND”. For you see, this Greek word also has several other meanings as well. And these other meanings will help you understand that the Father does NOT actually SEND HIMSELF anywhere because He is ALREADY PRESENT everywhere.

One of the meanings of this Greek word that was TRANSLATED as “SEND” in John 14:26 ALSO means to BESTOW, which means to present to as a GIFT. This AGREES with the CONTEXT of this verse where Jesus also says that the Father will GIVE us another comforter. Another meaning of the Greek word “PEMPO” is to TRANSMIT, which means to IMPART or to CONVEY. Jesus also said in this same CONTEXT that the Holy Spirit is WITH you now, but he shall be IN you because I go to the Father. So the Holy Spirit is conveyed from without us to within us moving from outside to INSIDE to DWELL or abide IN us.

You see God is everywhere so he is not truly SENT anywhere. This Greek word translated as sent also means WIELD, which mean to means to exercise or exert power or influence. Jesus said tarry in Jerusalem until you are ENDUED with POWER from on high, which is what happened on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was IMPARTED to them. This word also means to thrust in, where one meaning of thrust in is to PUT IN or to interject in. 

So when you consider all the meanings of this word God does not really SEND himself anywhere but rather moves from without the human body to come IN and DWELL IN the human body. But God will not dwell in an UNCLEAN vessel and this is WHY Jesus needed to go to the cross to shed his blood to CLEANSE all who BELIEVE on him so that WE can BE where Jesus WAS in his days of flesh having Almighty God the FATHER DWELLING IN him doing the WORKS men saw Jesus doing. Please read the study “THE POWER AND THE AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER!” to learn who you are in Jesus Christ and that the SAME ANOINTING that DWELT IN Jesus NOW DWELLS IN YOU dear children of God to EMPOWER you to do the SAME works men saw Jesus do THROUGH his God and Father who DWELT IN him. This brings us to point #7.


 POINT #7.


The word of TRUTH says that Almighty God the FATHER DWELT IN his SON Jesus as the one who was actually doing the works men saw Jesus do.


The word of TRUTH says that Jesus overcame sin BY of THROUGH the ETERNAL SPIRIT.


The word of TRUTH says that Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit.


The word of TRUTH says that GOD himself DWELLS in us, as Christians.


The word of TRUTH says that the Holy Spirit of God DWELLS in us, as Christians.


The word of TRUTH says that Almighty God the FATHER IS SPIRIT.


The word of TRUTH says that the is but ONE SPIRIT and NOT TWO separate Spirit persons in the ONE Spirit, which I suppose could be added to the list of the many man-made doctrines to try and prove that other man-made doctrines are true. Kind of like the ADDED Immaculate conception of Mary man-made doctrine to cover the ERROR of the Original sin man-made doctrine.

You see, some Catholics decided to THINK for themselves and LISTEN to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit who brought to their attention the QUESTIONS. And on such question was HOW could Jesus be BORN WITHOUT sin IF SO BE that ALL of mankind are BORN with SIN, according to the man-made doctrine of original sin. So the Roman Catholic Church ADDED another man-made doctrine called the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary which says that Mary was born without sin. And mots Catholics blindly accepted that answer to their question. I guess that they did not think about Mary’s PARENT being born with sin, according to the doctrine of original sin.

But the first QUESTION that the Holy Spirit brought to Catholics was WHY would God send an innocent baby to Hell? So to cover their erroneous Original sin doctrine the Roman Catholic church first instituted BABY baptisms. Then they added the doctrine of purgatory and another doctrine for non-Catholic babies called “limbo”. Then as late as December 8, 1854, the Roman Catholic church ADDED the FALSE man-made doctrine of the Immaculate conception which God granted this ONE-time exemption for the Virgin Mary to be born without sin knowing that she would conceive in her womb true God from true God according to the doctrines of MEN.

So then, rather than just keep on adding false doctrines on top of false doctrines to TRY and hide a previous false doctrine why not instead just simply teach what the CLEAR, PLAIN, and SIMPLE word of God teaches? But NO! Rather than to admit that they had been WRONG, the Roman Catholic church simply added another man-made doctrine saying the God granted this ONE time birth of his Son Jesus to be born without the STAIN of the so-called Original sin that ALL of mankind supposedly INHERIT from Adam. It was because the god of this world wants to bring CONFUSION to the body of Jesus Christ, the church. Please read the study called THE FALSE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN!


Back to the subject at hand. Now those who teach the doctrine of the trinity maintain that the Holy Spirit is the THIRD person of the TRIUNE God or TRINITY. And they come to this conclusion saying that the Holy Spirit is DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT from the Father and the Son.

Well, I can certainly see in God's WORD the DISTINCT DIFFERENCE between the Holy Spirit and Jesus, the SON OF Almighty God the Father, who was CONCEIVED BY the Holy Spirit. But when it comes to seeing from God's WORD ANY DISTINCT DIFFERENCE between Almighty God the FATHER and HIS OWN Holy Spirit, I myself, do NOT see ANY difference, distinct or slight.


#1. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be God in the word of TRUTH.


#2. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be SPIRIT in the word of TRUTH.


#3. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be HOLY in the word of TRUTH.


#4. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be ETERNAL or IMMORTAL as in to have always possessed IMMORTALITY in the word of TRUTH.


#5. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be INVISIBLE or NOT SEEN in the word of TRUTH.


#6. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be ALL KNOWING, as in, knowing things that only God could know in the word of TRUTH.


#7. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to be the FATHER of Jesus or to have CONCEIVED Jesus in the womb of Mary in the word of TRUTH.


#8. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to DWELL IN Jesus in the word of TRUTH.


#9. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are said to DWELL IN us as believers in the word of TRUTH.


#10. Both the Father AND his Holy Spirit are taught to be OMNIPRESENT by church doctrine yet I myself do not actually SEE this teaching clearly being taught in the word of TRUTH.


#11. And yet the word of TRUTH speaks of ONLY ONE SPIRIT.


#12. And the word of God speaks of ONLY ONE ALMIGHTY God, who ALONE is the FATHER who is SPIRIT.


So to ME, I myself must conclude that the Holy Spirit IS the FATHER. And, therefore, I MYSELF, do NOT see in the word of TRUTH that the ONE and ONLY TRUE God is a TRINITY being THREE distinctly different persons in ONE God. Therefore, WITHOUT THREE separate person there can be NO doctrine of the “TRINITY”.

But rather, I see ONE and only ONE ALMIGHTY God who alone is the FATHER who brought forth into existence on a certain DAY his SON by or through his spoken WORD and then came to DWELL IN his SON when he ANOINTED his SON Jesus at the age of thirty when Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan by John the baptist PREACH the gospel to show us the FATHER to be the ONE TRUE God.

And to learn why I can no longer believe the doctrine of the Trinity please read all the studies under the heading >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY<<<

And to know who Jesus is ACCORDING to the Bible ITSELF please read all the studies under the heading >>>WHO IS JESUS ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE?<<<


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