THE TRINITY – PART THREE This comment is about the trinity, but just a side note. Even today, using the English language, we make reference to things using personal pronouns. It is common throughout the world to refer to air and water Ships as “she” even giving water vessels feminine names. Some people give their cars names, like that current commercial, “you loved Frank”. People give names to inanimate things like toys, in the film Sleeping in Seattle, Jonah named his stuffy, Harold. We all know, that just because we give something a name of reference, we do not necessarily imply that it is a living person. I will go into technical depth on the subject of the Holy Spirit latter, because I want to get to the elementary aspects of the Trinity first, in case we run out of time, but Jesus referred to the spirit with masculine pronouns, like “he”, “him”, “his”. And in Some Greek manuscripts the spirit is referred to as “it”. “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born from God, and everyone who loves the one who caused to be born loves him who has been born from that one. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and carry out his commandments. 3 For this is what the love of God means, that we observe his commandments; and yet his commandments are not burdensome, 4 because everyone who has been born from God conquers the world. And this is the conquest that has conquered the world, our faith. 5 Who can conquer the world? Is it not the one who has faith that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is the one who came by means of water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. And the spirit is bearing witness, because the spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three witness bearers: 8 the spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.” This is from 1 John 5 and we can see it mentioned there that spirit, water and blood are in agreement, but we all know, that the Bible is not calling water and blood, literal persons. The Catholic Encyclopedia says this, “Nowhere in the Old Testament do we find any clear indication of a third person.” A Catholic theologian, Fortman, says this,”The Jews never regarded the spirit as a person; nor is there any solid evidence that any Old Testament writer held this view…… The Holy Spirit is usually presented in the Synoptics, that is the Gospels, and in the book of Acts, as a divine force or power.” The New Catholic Encyclopedia says this; “The Old Testament clearly does not envisage God’s spirit as a person….. God’s spirit is simply God’s power. If it is sometimes represented as being distinct from God, it is because the breath of Yahweh acts exteriorly.” It also says; “The majority of the New Testament text reveal God’s spirit as something, not someone; this is especially seen in the parallelism between the spirit and the power of God.” A Catholic Dictionary says this; “On the whole, the New Testament, like the Old Testament, speaks of the spirit as a divine energy or power.” The teaching of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity came centuries after the death of Christ and all of the Apostles. A Catholic Dictionary says, ” The third person was asserted at a council at Alexandria in 362 AD. and finally be the Council of Constantinople of 381 AD. Three and a half centuries after the holy spirit filled the disciples at Pentecost. The bible refers to the Holy Spirit, as God’s active force, it is not a person. It might be easier to view it as electricity, something of unimaginable power, but cannot be seen, only the effects of it can be witnessed. This same power, that emanates from the most Holy and powerful person in the universe, gives life to all living things, holds atomic structures in place, and planets and suns and moons and stars it the universe in their order.
TRINITY-PART FOUR The Athanasian Creed says this; “And in this Trinity none is before or after another; none is greater of less than another” The Bible says at John 14:28, Jesus says this, “The Father is greater than I am.” Are you really willing to call Jesus a liar, by saying that he IS God Almighty ???? What is it about that statement that Jesus made that is so difficult for billions of people, who claim to believe him, to understand???? There is 1.6 Billion people who are a part of the Catholic Church, and all of them believe that Jesus is God. And what is more, they believe that the Pope is equal to Jesus, that the Pope is Jesus on earth. That the Pope, is God on earth. There are more than a billion other people in the World Council of Churches who also believe that Jesus is God. Jesus never once said he was God. Are you really willing to say, that you cannot understand those words he clearly spoke. Are you really that obstinate and dense. Some of you go to some kind of Church, and you have some preacher up on stage, making the claim that Jesus is God, just exactly what is wrong with your legs that you don’t get up from your seat and walk out of that place, that is lying about the person that you claim that you love. If God is NOT greater than Jesus, why do you think Jesus even bothered to say that ?? What would be the point ??? Do you think that Jesus was deliberately trying to confuse you, to mislead, you ??? Do you think that Jesus was telling you a lie ??? I offer to you this suggestion, that Jesus knew exactly what he was talking about, that he actually had a Father, that he was not his own Father like the Catholic Church wants you to believe, and that the Father of Jesus Christ, was greater than Jesus. Jesus clearly told everyone that he knew, that he had a Father, and that he himself was a Son of God, he never even hinted that he WAS God.
TRINITY – PART FIVE This is more scripture than I planned on giving you at once on this subject of the Trinity, but I feel that it is a good time to insert this, so that you get an introduction as to who Christ is and was. The Athanasian Creed says this; “And in this Trinity none is before or after another.” The Bible says this at Colossians 1: 13-23, read this slowly, carefully, get the full meaning of it. “He (Jehovah), rescued us from the authority of the darkness (Satan) and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son (Jesus), 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens. 21 Indeed, you who were once alienated and enemies because your minds were on the works that were wicked, 22 he has now reconciled by means of that one’s fleshly body through his death, in order to present you holy and unblemished and open to no accusation before him 23 provided, of course, that you continue in the faith, established on the foundation and steadfast, not being shifted away from the hope of that good news that you heard and that was preached in all creation under heaven. Of this good news I, Paul, became a minister.” There are several points to take away from this, but to clarify the Athanasian greed, let’s start with Colossians 1:15, where it says this,” He is the Image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.” Notice here that it says that Jesus is the Image of the invisible God, it does not say that he IS, God. Otherwise it would of just simply read, Jesus is God. If Jesus was actually God, there would be no need for the scriptures to confuse us by saying that he was the Image of God. The other half of that scripture is probably one of the most important scriptures in the Bible. It says this about Jesus, “The firstborn of all creation.” To be firstborn, would imply, that a person would have to be born of someone, someone had to have given birth, and certainly there is no definition for self-born, that I know of, except solipsist of course. According to the Bible here, Jesus had a birth in heaven, he was the very first thing that God created, Jesus had a beginning. Jehovah, the Father of Jesus, was alive, before Jesus was. It is Jehovah who created Jesus, Jesus did not create Jehovah. The next point that we will talk about in Trinity – Six, is this, all other things, came into existence through Jesus Christ, he was Jehovah’s master Craftsman. every single sub atomic particle in this entire universe, except for Jehovah himself, came into existence through Jesus. But just because someone is an employee, it does not dictate that he is also the owner of the company. Jehovah and Jesus are two totally different, separate people.
TRINITY – PART SIX We left off last time in a discovery of who Christ is. In the coming days, you are going to need his leadership, so start right now, getting to know him. You may think that you already do, because you have went to church your entire life, and all your preacher does is talk to you about Jesus Christ. My point exactly. If you have been sitting in the pews of some building with the name of some Church of, written on the outside of it, I can assure you, you know nothing about Jesus Christ. This is not meant to offend, it is just the facts, and you no longer have the time to waste on lies. Your Church has been lying to you your whole life, just like mine lied to me, you don’t have time for that anymore. The Churches of the world, just like the political systems, have an owner, a designer, and it is not God. The Churches of the world are specifically designed to lead you away from God, to your own destruction. Get out of them, get away from them, they are not the friend of you, or God, they represent the enemy of both God and man. If you think I am making harsh statements about Churches, let me elaborate about their present intentions, and their insistence, and their history. It is the Churches of America, that told the soldiers of the Civil War, to go into the open fields, and gun each other down, Baptist against Baptist, Protestant against Protestant, Lutheran against Lutheran, Methodist against Methodist, and when they ran out of bullets, they used the swords. The Crusades and the Inquisitions, where spying and telling on your neighbor, was tortured out of you by the Catholic Church, World War I , World War II, all of those two wars had the blessing and the backing of every building that had the word Church on it, in the entire world, Religion, was at the heart of those wars, and all of the financing, on both sides of that war, went through the Bank of the Vatican, then on to the Bank of England, then on to the rest of the world. History is important, and because history is so important, that is the very reason why it is being discontinued in the schools systems the world over. The wars in the middle east are slaughtering each other by the thousands, all, claiming allegiance to the very same God. And you certainly have your head in the sand, if you still believe that America is not complicit. So let us examine the scriptures, to find out the true nature of God, and His Christ, there are two totally separate persons, exactly like the scriptures tell us. Here at Proverbs 8 : 22-36 we read this about Jesus, “Jehovah produced me as the beginning of his way, The earliest of his achievements of long ago. 23 From ancient times I was installed, From the start, from times earlier than the earth. 24 When there were no deep waters, I was brought forth, When there were no springs overflowing with water. 25 Before the mountains were set in place, Before the hills, I was brought forth, 26 When he had not yet made the earth and its fields Or the first clods of earth’s soil. 27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there; When he marked out the horizon on the surface of the waters, 28 When he established the clouds above, When he founded the fountains of the deep, 29 When he set a decree for the sea That its waters should not pass beyond his order, When he established the foundations of the earth, 30 Then I was beside him as a master worker. I was the one he was especially fond of day by day; I rejoiced before him all the time; 31 I rejoiced over his habitable earth, And I was especially fond of the sons of men. 32 And now, my sons, listen to me; Yes, happy are those who keep my ways. 33 Listen to discipline and become wise, And never neglect it. 34 Happy is the man who listens to me By coming early to my doors day by day, By waiting next to my doorposts; 35 For the one finding me will find life, And he receives approval from Jehovah. 36 But the one who ignores me harms himself, And those who hate me love death.” What a wonderful scripture of understanding about the nature of Jesus, when we do not scramble it with the lies, that in reality is is simply speaking of himself in the third person. NO, READ IT LIKE IT IS WRITTEN IT, AND BELIVE IT AS IT IS WRITTEN, and then it all makes perfect sense, Jesus, had a beginning, he was NOT the beginning, he HAD a Father, he was NOT the Father. Then with that understanding, what a beautiful scripture.
TRINITY – PART SEVEN We read this scripture last time, I posted almost the entire chapter of Colossians the first chapter. It is extremely important that you understand the Trinity, because, even if you are an atheist, whether or not you realize it, religion dominates and controls your life. Even an atheist uses money, and money is a big part of the religious systems of the world, without money, most of the religions of the world would evaporate overnight. Christendom is the religion that dominates and controls America, and the Trinity doctrine is the foundation of Christendom. Everyone who goes to some place called a Church, is taught and believes the Trinity, it is the main teaching of the World Council of Churches, if your Church is a member of the World Council of Churches, it teaches the Trinity. The Trinity is the doctrine that effectively claims that the God of the Bible is Jesus. That is why in all of the Churches, the name of the Father of Jesus is never spoken, they only speak of Jesus as the Father. According to the Churches, Jesus is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, all wrapped up into one person, Jesus. There is a Church in town that has all these posters up around town that says, “Nothing But Jesus” . The Pope has written several edicts that warn any Church leader against even mentioning the God of the Bible, either from the podium, or in print. Let’s take a second look at Colossians, the 1st chapter. At Colossians 1: 14-20 we read this, “by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens.” “He is the image of the invisible God.” the Bible says. How would this read if a person believed in the Trinity ? “I am the image of Myself !!!” Does that make sense to anyone, how is it even possible that God could actually be an image of himself ? “The firstborn of all creation.” the Bible says. Was God really the first thing in all creation that was born. And if he was the first to be born, who gave birth to him, and if someone gave birth to God, would that mean that some one else was born before God, was God the first born, before he was the first born??? Oh ya, I forgot, the Catholic Church teaches that Mary, a human, was the mother of God, oh jee, how could I have ever forgotten that small detail. So let me try to understand that. Mankind was alive for 4,000 years on earth, the earth and everything on it was already created, the entire universe was already created, and then Mary decided that she would give birth to God, gee, how exactly did that work ? Or do you also believe that God himself came into existence in a big bang explosion that formed this entire universe, and all life in it ?? , But that still confuses things at least for me, how is it that God came into existence 4,000 years after he created Adam, maybe you have it all figured out in your minds, but this scenario is extremely confusing to me, no wonder that the Muslims just don’t get Christianity, frankly, I don’t either. But since it is the Catholic Church that thought all of this up, the insanity becomes clearer, once you know the source. 1 Corinthians 14: 33 says this, ” God is not a God of confusion.” The identity of Christ becomes elementary to understand, once you are willing to listen to his words, instead of formulating your own, and accusing him of being someone who he says he is not. Jesus Christ was who he said he was, the image of God, not God himself, but the image of God. He was the first person born in this entire universe. He did not give birth to himself, he was brought into being by his Father, exactly like he said he was. There, isn’t that easy to understand. Imagine how confusing it would be to people, if you tried to convince them, that your children gave birth to you. When your Church teaches you, that Jesus made his own Father, and his own Mother Mary, and the Holy Spirit, all before he came into existence, you should check to see exactly what your preacher is drinking, or smoking. And while you are doing that, you might want to check to see what drugs you are taking, that make you stay in that Church as an honored member, because in reality, there is nothing honorable about believing lies about God, or participating in them, and if you are in the pews, you are participating. If Christ returned that very minute, where would he find you. Listening to someone who tells the truth about God, or listening to someone who is telling lies about God, you cannot belong to both, you have to choose a side, and you have to choose it right now. If you choose neither, you are choosing neutral, neutral means, not with God.
Yet for thousands of years before Christianity, people have observed a sunrise service on Easter morning and took the “bloodless sacrifice” of a round sun shaped wafer as part of Easter observance. On the wafer, then and now, exist three initials. They are I.H.S. These initials are still commonly used over the alter of many modern day churches and you would be told it stands for “Iesus Hominum Salvator,” or “Jesus, the Savior of Men.“ Ancient idolaters would have told you something quite different. They would have explained to you that their round, sun shaped wafers with the initials I. H. S., stood for “Isis, Horus, Seb” that is, “the mother, the child and the father of the gods,” or the Egyptian TRINITY. Another “trinity” is Astarte, Bel, and Baal. Another trinity is Semiramis, Nimrod and Tammuz.
