WHO IS THE ONE TRUE GOD?



WHO IS THE ONE TRUE GOD?




Let us begin by taking a close look at what the Holy Bible teaches us as to the DESCRIPTION or traits of the one true God. I want to begin this study in God’s word by reading a verse where Jesus is praying to his God and Father asking that the world may know the Father as the ONE TRUE God and to also know Jesus whom he commissioned so that we might have ETERNAL LIFE.

Please read John 17:4.


“And THIS is life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, and Jesus Christ, whom YOU have sent.”


#1. God is a Spirit.


John 4:24.


God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”


Jesus is teaching and showing us the Father, that the one true God, who is the Father, is a SPIRIT.


#2. God is invisible.


Colossians 1:15.


“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”


Here we see that Jesus, the Son of man, is the IMAGE OF the one true God who is INVISIBLE.


1 Timothy 1:17.  


“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

We see that the one true God is also described in other ways in this verse which we will cover shortly. The one true God is THE King or the highest King over all over kings. The one true God is eternal, he is immortal, which means the one true God has ALWAYS been immortal from all eternity past to eternity future. The one true God is also the ONLY WISE God which means that he is the wisest being and no creation of his can become wiser than their creator. And again the one true God is INVISIBLE.



#3. No man has seen God nor can see him.


John 1:18.


No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.”


Jesus was commissioned or set apart by God to show us the Father. To reveal God’s true nature and character. That God is love full of mercy and grace but that he is also a just God who means what he says and therefore he must keep his word to punish the wicked who reject his so great a salvation. So the no man has SEEN God in this context means that no man before Jesus has truly UNDERSTOOD the one true God and thus Jesus is revealing God’s love and true nature by the works God did through the hands of Jesus. Jesus showed us God’s LOVE at his first coming and WARNS us of God judgment and WRATH to come at his SECOND coming.


1 Timothy 6:14-16.


“That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15.  Which in his times (speaking of the first and second coming of Jesus) he (Jesus) shall show, WHO is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (the word “Potentate” means Sovereign or over all where noone or nothing or no other God is over the ONLY Sovereign God. THE King over all other kings and THE LORD over all other Lords)


16. Who ONLY has immortality, (meaning that there is only ONE who has ALWAYS been eternal having immortality in himself to be the SOURCE of all life) dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.”


The context here of no man has seen nor car see is speaking a mortal man having never seen God with their physical eyes face to face. People have seen God in a vision. Moses saw the back parts of God as God shielded his eyes. People thought that they saw God but what they thought was God was an angel of God.


#4. God is eternal and has always been immortal.


1 Timothy 1:17.  


“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”


Again the one true and only wise God has awlays existed without any beginning having always possessed immortality in himself. No other God gave the ONE TRUE God who is the Father of Jesus immortality. The Father ONLY, whom Jesus was sent out into the world to show and reveal to the world as being the ONE TRUE God as the ONLY being, has always possessed IMMORTALITY in himself.


1 Timothy 6:16.


Who ONLY has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.”



Hebrews 9:14.


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

The is but ONE eternal Spirit and ONE eternal immortal God who IS Spirit which teaches me that the Holy Spirit IS the ONE TRUE God who IS the God and Father of Jesus the ANOINTED of God.



#5. God’s name is Yahweh forever.


Exodus 3:15.


“And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, The LORD (Yahweh) God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

Please see the LITERAL translation for the correct translation of the tetragrammaton YHWH which most Bible scholars translate as Yahweh but the King James Version translates as LORD.



#6. God is Almighty or all powerful.


Genesis 17:1


“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD (or Yahweh) appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be you perfect.”


This means that there can be NO OTHER God over the ONE true God who ALONE is the Almighty God over all other Gods. There can be MANY Gods but there can only be ONE of those many God who ALONE is the ONE TRUE God and the SOURCE of all other Gods. Just commons sense teaches us this but we will see it shortly from the Bible itself.


#7. Almighty God Yahweh is the creator of all things alone and by himself for his good pleasure.


Revelation 4:8-11.


“And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

9.  And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who lives for ever and ever,

10.  The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11.  You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for YOU have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.”


Isaiah 44:24.


“Thus say the LORD (or thus says Yahweh), thy redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am the LORD (or I am Yahweh) that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth BY MYSELF;”


Job 9:8-9.


Which ALONE spreads out the heavens, and treads upon the waves of the sea.

9.  Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

10.  Which does great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.”

These verse teach us that there were NO OTHER Gods in existence before the ONE TRUE God created them of brought them forth into existence and gave them authority to become gods. These verse also teaches us very plainly that NO OTHER God HELPED God create all things or created all thing FOR the one true God. And by all things the whole word of God is speaking about the heavens and the earth or the universe.

There is of course God’s NEW CREATION which he prophesied to create where God also prophesied in Genesis saying,  “Let US make man in OUR image”. And this NEW creation BEGAN to be created when Jesus became the FIRSTBORN of every creature to become the FIRST human being to be BORN AGAIN from the dead to be GIVEN immortality to be having in himself even as the Father has immortality in himself. Please read the study “GOD’S NEW CREATION!” and “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?” for all the scriptures.



#8. God is NOT a MAN and neither is God the Son of man.


Numbers 23:19.


God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”


Here we see that Almighty God the Father who alone is the ONE TRUE God has never been a MAN nor the Son of MAN. Contrary to what mainstream Christianity teaches about the one true God becoming a MAN is not what the Bible ITSELF teaches us.

The Oneness doctrine teaches that God manifested himself to become the Son of man Jesus and thus they teach the Jesus IS the Father and the Father IS the Son. This Oneness doctrine is not a sound Biblical teaching because it never also for Jesus to be a separate person from the Father.

The doctrine of the Trinity does indeed teach that Jesus is a separate person from the Father but is does not allow for Jesus to be a separate God from the ONE TRUE God. The early church taught beginning at the Nicene creed began using the term describing or defining that Jesus was true god FROM TRUE God. In other words, there began to be a debate between Christians as to what the true nature of Jesus truly was.

Some Christians saw that the Bible clearly taught that Jesus was God but that he was not the TRUE God who alone is the Father. It would seem that debates back then would be the same as they are today where the opposing side would argue, how can Jesus be God and not be the TRUE God? So the phrase, true God FROM TRUE God was coined. This was an acceptable description of Jesus by both sides but the debate went on to produce a new creed basically overriding any previous creeds made before the Nicene creed and MORE wording was added to the creed that was NOT acceptable to both sides. And thus the debate continues even in the church today.

Jesus and the Father are both called God in the Bible, However, the Bible itself distinguishes the difference between Almighty God the Father and his Son Jesus by teaching us that the Father is the God OF Jesus and the Son OF God is subject and under his God and Father whom Jesus himself says in the ONE TRUE God. Remember John 17:3 the first verse we read at the beginning of this study?

John 17:3.


“And THIS is life eternal, that they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, and Jesus Christ, whom YOU have sent.”



#9. There is but ONE TRUE God above all other Gods, gods and goddesses.


Malachi 2:10.


“Have we not all one father? has not ONE God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?”


Mark 12:32.


“And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, you have said the truth: for there is ONE God; and there is NONE other but HE:”


So then, WHO is the HE that the Bible ITSELF teaches us the ONE TRUE God over all other Gods, gods, and goddesses?


1 Corinthians 8:5,6.


“For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

6.  But to 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 whom are all things, and we by him.”


The Bible itself always clearly identifies the one true God as being the FATHER and his SON Jesus as being a God who is under and subject to his God a Father the creator of all things.


#10. The one true God is the highest of all other God. Yahweh is the God of gods.


Deuteronomy 10:17.


“For the LORD (or Yahweh) your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor takes reward:”


Psalm 136:1-6.


“O give thanks unto the LORD (Yahweh); for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.

2.  O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endures for ever.

3.  O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endures for ever.

4.  To him who ALONE does great wonders: for his mercy endures for ever.

5.  To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endures for ever.

6.  To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endures for ever.”

Some would argue that Jesus did great wonders, but a CLOSER reading of the Scripture teaches us that the Son could do NOTHING of himself and that it was the Father who DWELT IN Jesus who was the one who was actually doing the great wonders.



#11. God alone is good and every good thing comes from God.


Matthew 19:17.


“And he (Jesus) said unto him, Why call you me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.”


Psalm 145:8,9.


“The LORD (Yahweh) is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

9.  The LORD (Yahweh) is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”


It is Satan the Devil that oppresses people with sickness and disease, tragedies, and all bad things as we see in Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”


James 1:17.


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”


#12. God cannot be tempted.


James 1:13.


“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:”



#13. The one true God has begotten him a Son.


Proverbs 34:4.


Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended? who has gathered the wind in his fists? who has bound the waters in a garment? who has established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if you can tell?”

This is a prophecy of God’s yet coming Son who will ascend up to heaven and shall descend back down to the earth at his second coming.


John 3:13.


“And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.”


This verse LITERALLY means that not YET any man has ascended into heaven IF the one would have NOT descended out of heaven the Son of man who is now in heaven.


Psalm 89:26,27.


“He SHALL cry unto me, You are my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

27.  Also I WILL MAKE him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.”


This is a PROPHECY of God’s yet coming Son, when the Son of man WILL be made God’s FIRSTBORN of every creature when God begat Jesus from the dead and gave the Son of Man eternal life. The Son of MAN born of FLESH had to be born first before the Son of MAN Jesus could become God’s FIRSTBORN of his NEW CREATION.

Please read Jeremiah 31:32 which is a prophecy where the one true God created a NEW thing in the womb of the Virgin Mary to be born as the Son of MAN.

“How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the LORD (Yahweh) has CREATED  (or creates) a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a MAN.”


The follow is the meaning of the Hebrew word and a commentary of what this verse means.

A woman: נקבה תסובב גבר [Strong's H5347], literally "A female ('one who is only a woman, not a wife, namely a virgin,' says Cocceius) shall encompass a man," or a male child. Comp. Job_3:3. Which, together with the addition of a new creation, may well be understood to denote the miraculous conception. Hence the Jews have applied it determinately to the Messiah. In Berashith Rabba (Parash 89) it is said, that as God punished Israel in a virgin, so would he also heal; and in Midrash Tillim, on Psa_2:1-12, R. Huna, in the name of R. Idi, speaking of the sufferings of the Messiah, says, that when his hour is come, God shall say, "I must create him with a new creation; and so he saith, This day I have begotten thee."

Jesus said that which is corn of the flesh if flesh and that we MUST be BORN AGAIN being born of water and the Spirit before we can enter into the kingdom of God. To be born again means to be begotten of God. Jesus the Son of Man during the days of his FLESH was begotten of God on the day Yahweh the Father raised the Son of man from the dear to become the FIRSTBORN from the dead the FIRSTBORN of every creature to become the BEGINNING of the creation of God the FIRSTBORN among many brethren.


Hebrews 1:5.


“For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”


Acts 13:33-35.


“God has fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he has raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, You are my Son, THIS DAY have I begotten you.

34.  And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David. (This is WHEN the Son of MAN Jesus became God’s ETERNAL SON.)

35. Wherefore he said also in another psalm, You shall not suffer your Holy One to see corruption.”


Psalm 89:19.


“Then you spoke in vision to your holy one, and said, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have EXALTED one chosen out of the people.”






There are many religions in the world and thus many gods to choose from but which religion and which god is the ONE TRUE God.

Is the highest Hindu god the one true god? Is the god of Buddhist the one true god. Is the god of Islam to one true god. Every religion sincerely believes that the god or gods that they worship are the one true god but yet all religions worship their god of gods in different ways.

Now there are three faiths in the world that worship one god and use the Bible, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. These three faith worship the God of Abraham in the Bible. Again all three faiths sincerely believe that their faith is the one true faith. They all use the BIBLE as their foundation to base their faith. However, Islam uses other books that they consider to be above the Holy Bible claiming that the Bible has been corrupted. The Jews use only the Old Testament not understanding the Jesus is their Messiah who established a NEW COVENANT with his shed blood on the cross.


In all fairness all religions of the world teach good MORAL values. And for this reason some people sincerely believe that all roads lead to heaven. However, there is ONE faith that sincerely believes that there is only ONE WAY to the ONE TRUE God, which is called Christianity.

Christianity from what I myself has found in the ONLY faith where a true believer in this faith is given complete full assurance that they are a child of the one true God and that we will receive ETERNAL LIFE in the next world.

Now sadly Christianity is divided into many different church denominations where SOME of these church denomination claim that they ALONE are the ONE TRUE FAITH.

So now the question becomes which church denomination has the most sound Biblical teaching of WHO the ONE TRUE God is? The following four church make the CLAIM that they ALONE are the ONE TRUE church and dogmatically demand that if you are not baptized into THEIR church then you cannot be saved. If YOU are a part of one of those churches asked yourself the question of whether or not they teach what you just read that the Bible ITSELF teaches.

Is the teaching of the god of the Mormons, the church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, about the one true god the closest to what the Bible ITSELF teaches?

Is the teaching of the god of the Jehovah’s Witnesses about the one true god the closest to what the Bible ITSELF teaches?  

Is the teaching of the Seventh Day Adventist church about the one true god the closest to what the Bible ITSELF teaches?

Is the teaching of the god of the Roman Catholic church about the one true god the closest to what the Bible ITSELF teaches?

What about the church that do not claim to be the only church that has the truth on how to be saved?

Is the teaching of these church denominations that do NOT claim to be the ONLY true church but rather that all who are true born again Christians to be in other church denominations as well are a part of the body of Jesus Christ?

In other words, the question now becomes which TEACHING is the one true teaching concerning the ONE TRUE GOD?

Is the Trinitarian god of the doctrine of the trinity the one true god?

Is the Oneness god of the Oneness doctrine the one true god?


Or is the one true God something different than from what all the Christians church denominations teach? And we will include the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints and the Jehovah’s Witnesses because they sincerely believe with all their heart that they are Christians.


Let us begin this study in God’s word of truth, the Holy Bible, by reading Acts 17:22-31.


“Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, You men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious. (the original Greek word also mean more RELIGIOUS. Paul is basically saying to them that they have too many gods and that there is bu ONE TRUE God who he is about to explain to them WHO the one true God IS)

23.  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. (here we see Paul teaching us that all the religions of the world worship a HIGHER god but they worship their higher god in ignorance or not in the WAY that the ONE TRUE God desires and even commands to be worshiped. So in answer to people in the world the many different religions may worship the one true God but NOT in the WAY he desires them to worship him. Even the Jews, God’s chosen people are NOT worshiping the one true God is the WAY he COMMANDS them to worship hi in the Holy Bible. So Paul is declaring WHO the unknown god of this pagan religion is.)

24.  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells NOT in temples made with hands; (so the one true God is the CREATOR of ALL things and he does NOT dwell in man-made TEMPLES. So all the SHRINES, temples, and altars of sacrifice are an abomination to the one true God.)

25.  Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, (the one true God does not accept sacrifices made to him) seeing he gives to all life, and breath, and all things; (the one true God is the SOURCE of ALL LIFE)

26.  And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27.  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from everyone of us: (the one true God is not far away from anyone of us. We can talk to him directly without going to a priest to talk to God for us)

28.  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

29.  Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. (the one true God is not to be worshiped with idols made to represent him)

30.  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commands all men everywhere to REPENT:

31/  Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will JUDGE the world in righteousness BY that MAN whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.”


Christianity from what I have been made aware is the only faith where God himself gives us full ASSURANCE that we are believing the ONE TRUE FAITH in that his written word PROPHESIED of a coming Messiahs who would suffer and die on a cross and be resurrected from the dead.

The are over 360 prophecies of Jesus or Yeshua in the Old Testament of the Bible and Jesus fulfilled EVERY ONE concerning his FIRST coming. Therefore we are assured that all the prophecies of JUDGMENT at his coming again will also take place as prophesied in the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible.


What other descriptions does the Bible give of the ONE TRUE God?


#14. The one true God speaks the future into existence.


What the one true God prophesies in his word will come to pass as it has already been PROVEN by many already fulfilled prophecies that were fulfilled by the Son of man Jesus.

In other words, what Yahweh has spoken in his word will come to pass.


Numbers 23:13.


God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: has he said, and shall he not do it? or has he spoken, and shall he not make it good?


Hebrews 6:


“For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

14.  Saying, Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.

15.  And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

16.  For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

17.  Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: (In other words, God has given us his written guarantee that what he says in his word that he WILL DO. What other religion of the world gives this kind of ASSURANCE to its followers?)

18.  That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

19.  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which enters into that within the veil;

20.  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”


Almighty God the Father has already PROVEN his word to us by resurrecting the Son of man, Jesus, highly exalting him, giving him eternal life and receiving him up to heaven.


Isaiah 55:11.


“So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”


#15. God does not dwell in temples made with hands.


Acts 7:48.  


“Howbeit the most High dwells not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,”

Acts 17:24.  


“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands;”


1 Corinthians 3:16.  


“Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?


Every true born again Christian has the Holy Spirit dwelling in them. Those in the world cannot receive the Holy Spirit unless the receive Jesus as their savior.

After we believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God who suffered and died on the cross for our sin we are to obey the teachings of Jesu in the New testament under the New Covenant the was established by his shed blood for the remission of our sins. And one of the teachings is to be baptized in water confessing our sins believing old old man is buried and we rise up out of the water as a NEW creation created in Jesus Christ to walk in NEWNESS of life repenting of our sins.

In other words, we are to walk after the Spirit dwelling in us and NOT after the flesh.

1 Corinthians 3:17.  


“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”


2 Corinthians 6:14-18.


“Be you not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15.  And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that believeth with an infidel?

16.  And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, said the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18.  And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, said the Lord Almighty.”


There are some believers in Jesus as the savior who wrongly interpret this passage of Scripture as saying the a believer in Jesus must do all they can do to live a righteous and godly life BEFORE God will receive them. In other words, they have NO ASSURANCE that they ARE saved and forgiven of all their past sins and thus they can only HOPE that they are good enough to become a son or daughter of God AFTER they have cleansed their own sins.

The Mormons and some Roman Catholics sincerely believe that they are Christians like every other Christian who truly love God and his Son and desire to please him but they have not submitted to God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS. There is no doubt that many Mormons, many Jehovah’s Witnesses, and many Roman Catholics have a ZEAL for God but they are NOT coming to God in the WAY that the word of truth teaches us in the NEW Testament under the NEW Covenant.


Romans 10:2,3.


“For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

3.  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have NOT submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

4.  For Christ is the END of the law FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS to everyone that believes.”


We receive the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God as his GIFT to us when we BELIEVE that we ARE forgiven and cleansed of all our pat sin when we believe on Jesus as the Christ the Son of the living God.


Romans 5:17.


“For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which RECEIVE abundance of GRACE and of the GIFT of RIGHTEOUSNESS shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”




Now as far as I am aware, the church of Jesus Christ of the Latter day Saints if the only Church that teaches the Christians will become Gods. And what THEY mean by becoming Gods is to be EQUAL with Almighty God the Father to become CREATOR Gods like the ONE TRUE God.

That is NOT what the Bible itself teaches. Yes, the Bible does say that we are Gods.


John 10:34.  


“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”


The Jews were falsely accusing Jesus that he was making himself EQUAL with God and Jesus defended himself that he was NOT making himself equal with his God and Father by quoting Psalm 82:6.


“I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.”


Jesus is also a child of God but his God and Father has highly exalted the Son of MAN Jesus to sit on his throne at the Father own right right to rule FOR Yahweh during the world to come. Thus the only one over Jesus is Almighty God the Father himself. Let us read the whole Psalm.

Psalm 83:1-8.


“God stands in the congregation of the mighty; he judges among the gods.

2.  How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. (so some of these gods are wicked gods)

3.  Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4.  Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5.  They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6.  I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. (the ANGELS or angelic being who are higher the human beings are also called the sons of God and some have been placed in positions of authority to rule as mighty ones. And we know one whose name is Lucifer who rebelled against God to try and take over God’s throne. Satan is now called the god of this world)

7.  But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8.  Arise, O God, judge the earth: for you shall INHERIT all nations.”


Now the ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God already OWNS all that he has created. So the God in verse 8 here is a prophecy of Jesus being highly exalted to become a God who will INHERIT all  the nations.


Now all through the New Testament we never see the apostles of Jesus or the disciples of Jesus making any kind of argument for Jesus being the ONE TRUE and only Almighty God. But rather we see many clear, plain, and simple verses that either state or plainly teach that the one true God is the God AND Father of Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 11:31.  

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

Ephesians 1:3.

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

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,”


The Bible itself always clearly identifies the one true God as being the Father.


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, and we by him”.

Ephesians 4:6.  

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Romans 15:6.  

“That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

1 Corithians 15:24.  

“Then comes the end, when he (Jesus) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”

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;”

James 3:9.  

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


Then Jesus himself while praying to his God and Father clearly identifies the Father as the ONE TRUE God.

Please read John 17:1-4.


These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify YOUR Son, that YOUR Son also may glorify you: (clearly Jesus is praying to his Father and thus Jesus is not one and the same being as the Father)

2.  As YOU have GIVEN him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you hast given him.

3.  And this is life eternal, THAT they might know YOU the ONLY TRUE God, AND Jesus Christ, whom YOU have sent.”


Now let us read 1 Thessalonians 1:9,10 to see who the disciples of Jesus say that the TRUE God is.

1 Thessalonians 1:9,10.


“For they themselves show of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and TRUE God;

10.  And to wait for HIS Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 John 5:20


“And we know that the SON OF God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know HIM that is TRUE, and we are IN HIM that is TRUE, even IN his Son Jesus Christ. This is the TRUE God, AND eternal life.”


Now some Christians interpret this verse to mean that the Jesus is the one true God.

First of all the word “even” is not in the original text and even if it was in the text it is clear that the apostle John is saying that we who are IN HIS SON are IN GOD whom the SON OF God has given us the UNDERSTANDING that we may know HIM that is TRUE and the by being IN the SON we are ALSO IN the FATHER that is the ONE TRUE God.

The Apostle John would NOT contradict the words of Jesus in John 17:1-4. John also say that we must have BOTH the Father AND the Son and if we do NOT have the SON then we do NOT have the Father either. So the John is simply saying that being IN God’s Son we are ALSO in the FATHER who is the ONE TRUE God whom Jesus came to show and give us an understanding of the Father.


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continues to seek the truth of the whole word of Almighty God the Father the ONE TRUE God.

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Mark.
