The Oneness of the Godhead
The subject of the Godhead has long been debated. Some people believe in THREE DIFFERENT DISTINCT PERSONS. In the revised edition of the Baltimore Cataclysm No. 2. (Which is the OFFICIAL DOCTRINE of the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH). This book states in God there are THREE DIVINE PERSONS. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The THREE DIVINE PERSONS, though really DISTINCT FROM ONE ANOTHER, are ONE and the SAME God because ALL THREE have the SAME DIVINE NATURE. It also says we CANNOT FULLY UNDERSTAND the Blessed Trinity because it is a SUPERNATURAL MYSTERY.
But let’s look at what the Bible says!
(Colossians 1:26) [Even] the MYSTERY which hath been HID FROM AGES and from GENERATIONS, but NOW is MADE MANIFEST to his SAINTS: (Colossians 2:2) That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full ASSURANCE of UNDERSTANDING, to the ACKWOLDGEMENT of the MYSTERY OF GOD, and of the FATHER, and of CHRIST; (Colossians 2:8) BEWARE lest any MAN SPOIL you through PHILOSOPHY and VAIN DECIT, after the TRADTION of MEN, after the RUDIMENTS of the WORLD, and not after Christ. (Colossians 2:10) And ye are COMPLETE in HIM, which is HEAD of ALL PRINCIPALITY and POWER.
In summation, we cannot understand the TRINITY DOCTRINE because it DOES NOT EXIST in the BIBLE. It only exists in the doctrine of the false church. What we need to understand is the MYSTERY of the Godhead bodily dwelling in Jesus Christ, which the Bible does talk about.
I believe in three manifestations of the same spirit. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, all are one spirit. Not three separate spirits working in three separate bodies.
If we study the Old Testament we find: (Deuteronomy 4:35) Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mighest know that the LORD HE [is] God; [there is] NONE ELSE beside him. (Deuteronomy 6:4) Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] ONE LORD: (2 Samuel 7:22) Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for [there is] none like thee, NEITHER [IS THERE ANY] GOD BESIDE THEE, according to all that we have heard with our EARS. (1 Chronicles 17:20) O LORD, [there is] none like thee, NEITHER [IS THERE ANY] GOD BESIDE THEE, according to all that we have heard with our EARS. (Psalm 86:10) For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou [ART] GOD ALONE. (Isaiah 9:6) For unto us A CHILD is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and HIS NAME shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The MIGHTY GOD, the EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace. Notice the word ears; do you have ears to hear the truth?
We know the name of Jesus Christ is wonderful, he’s the counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting father, the Prince of peace. There is a mystery her, let’s go on. (Isaiah 43:10) Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe ME, and understand that I [AM] HE: Before ME there WAS NO GOD FORMED, neither shall there be AFTER ME, (Isaiah 43:11) I, [even] I, [AM] the Lord; and beside ME [there is] no SAVIOUR. This verse says beside me there is no Saviour. If Jesus Christ wasn’t God and the Saviour manifested in the flesh, then he had to be an imposter. The New Testament does not contradict the Old. The New Testament doesn’t EVER SPEAK of THREE DEVINE DISTINCT PERSONS, or use the word TRINITY.
The Jews crucified Jesus Christ for making himself God. (Mark 2:5) When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. (Mark 2:6) But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, (Mark 2:7) Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can FORGIVE SINS but GOD ONLY? (Mark 2:8) And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, why reason ye these things in your hears? (Mark 2:9) Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up they bed, and walk? (Mark 2:10) But that ye may know that the SON OF MAN HATH POWER ON EARTH TO FORGIVE SINS, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) verse 7 says: (Mark 2:7) Why doth this [man] thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? These men were right about one thing. NO ONE can forgive sin but God.
The Jews couldn’t accept Jesus Christ, because they couldn’t believe Jesus Christ was born of the spirit. They also did not believe it was GOD manifested in the flesh.
(Matthew 1:20) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary they wife: for that which is CONCEIVED in her is of the Holy Ghost. We read here: For that which is conceived in her is of the HOLY GHOST. But yet we say GOD IS THE FATHER, which is correct, because GOD THE FATHER and the HOLY GHOST are the same SPIRIT. Isn’t God Holy? Isn’t God a spirit? (Ephesians 4:4) [There is] ONE BODY, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; (Ephesians 4:5) One LORD, one FAITH, one BAPTISM, (Ephesians 4:6) ONE GOD and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all. Therefore, the SPIRIT of CHRIST is the SPIRIT of GOD. JESUS CHRIST was not fathered by a man. (Matthew 1:23) 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. God was with us here on earth for it was his spirit that dwelled in the body of Jesus Christ.
(Deuteronomy 6:4) Hear, O Israel: the LORD OUR GOD [is] ONE LORD: (John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD. (John 1:3) ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:10) HE WAS IN THE WORLD, and the WORLD WAS MADE BY HIM, and the WORLD KNEW HIM NOT. (John 1:14) And the WORD was MADE FLESH, and DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. The word was made flesh. (1 John 5:7) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. This passage says the Word not the Son. This is because the spirit or word became flesh. (John 10:30) I and my father are one (ONE SPIRIT).
(Luke 10:22) All things are delivered to me of my father: and NO MAN KNOWETH who the SON IS, BUT THE FATHER; and WHO THE FATHER, but THE SON, and he TO WHOM the SON WILL REVEAL HIM. Have you ever wondered what the Son would reveal? This verse plainly states: He’ll reveal who the Father is and who the Son is.
(John 8:19) Then said they unto him, Where is thy FATHER? Jesus answered, Ye neither KNOW ME, NOR MY FATHER; if ye had KNOWN ME, ye should have KNOWN MY FATHER ALSO. (John 14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:7) If ye had KNOWN ME, ye should have KNOWN MY FATHER ALSO: and from henceforth ye KNOW HIM, and HAVE SEEN HIM. (John 14:9) Jesus saith unto him, HAVE I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me Philip? he that HATH SEEN ME HATH SEEN THE FATHER: and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father? (Colossians 1:13) Who hath delivered us from the power darkness, and hath translated us into the KINGDOM of his dear son: (Colossians 1:14) In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: (Colossians 1:15) Who is the IMAGE of the INVISIBLE God, the firstborn of every creature: (Colossians 1:16) For by him were ALL THINGS CREATED, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities or powers: all things were CREATED BY HIM, AND FOR HIM: (Colossians 1:17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Colossians 1:18) and he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. (Colossians 1:19) for it pleased [the Father] that in him should ALL FULNESS DWELL; (1 John 2:23) Whosoever DENIETH THE SON, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that ACKNOWLEDGETH the SON hath the FATHER ALSO.
(2 Corinthians 5:15) And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. (2 Corinthians 5:16) Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more.
We no longer know Jesus Christ after the flesh (AS A MAN WALKING THIS EARTH) but we do know him after the spirit. God was a spirit which became a man. THE FLESH DIED AND THE SPIRIT WHICH WAS FROM THE BEGINNING CONTINUES. The flesh was veil but now we enter directly into the Holy of Holies by his spirit.
Don’t let the veil blind you. God’s spirit is the spirit of Christ. (Hebrews 10:19) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, (Hebrews 10:20) By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh. Now when Jesus Christ returns, he is not coming as the Son, but as the King of kings and God Almighty. (Hebrews 10:19) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus. I am not waiting for him to be crowned. He is already King and the all mighty God to me.
(Acts 20:28) Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath PURCHAED WITH HIS OWN BLOOD.
(Revelations 22:1) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the THRONE of God and of the Lamb. (Revelations 22:3) And there shall be no more curse: but the Throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in IT; and HIS servants shall serve HIM: (Revelations 22:4) And they shall see HIS FACE: and HIS NAME [shall be] in their foreheads. (Revelations 22:12) behold, I come quickly, and MY reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
These passages plainly state throne, not thrones, His servants, not their servants, His face, not their faces, His blood, not their blood and His name, not their names in their foreheads. These passages also say I am Alpha and Omega, not we are Alpha and Omega. (Revelations 3:20) I STAND at the door, and knock: if any man hear MY VOICE, and open the door, I WILL come in to him, and will sup with him and he with ME. Don’t you think this means he’ll come in as a spirit?
(Revelations 17:1) And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: (Revelation 17:5) And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
(Revelations 17:6) And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Multiple gods, (THE UNHOLY TRINITY) is the doctrine of the WHORE AND HER HARLOTS.
If possible they will deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24) For there shall ARISE FALSE CHRISTS, and FALSE PROPHETS, and shall show GREAT SIGNS and WONDERS; inasmuch that, IF it were POSSIBLE, they SHALL DECEIVE the VERY ELECT. Do not be deceived by the TRINITY DOCTRINE.
(1 Timothy 3:16) And without controversy GREAT is the MYSTERY of godliness: GOD was MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, JUSTIFIED in the SPIRIT, SEEN of ANGELS, PREACHED unto the GENTILES, BELIEVED ON in the WORLD, RECEIVED UP INTO GLORY.
