“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
Now I understand that the majority of professing Christians want to believe in a triune God but im totally convinced that this doctrine is not only FALSE but robbing people of a true relationship with Jesus Christ.
Seriously, this idea was so frustrating that I had almost given up on seeking the Lord altogether. I remember telling my husband that if God didn’t explain the way I was to worship him regarding Jesus Christ then I was done with all this Christian stuff! And I know it sounds a bit dramatic but all I really wanted was to just worship God.
I had spent MONTHS praying and fasting and searching the scriptures on this until one day, Jesus himself responded to me through this:
“All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.” Matthew 11:27
You see, we can not create our own ways (or relationships!) to God through our own emotions or “intellect”. We must simply go the way He provided—through Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, a lot of people have deceived themselves into believing that they know God without knowing His son (not THE son!) Jesus Christ.
Do not be deceived. You cannot (and do not) truly know Jesus when (or if) you just consider him as God. The scriptures are very clear that Jesus reveals God to us, not reveals himself AS God to us.
This doctrine is Antichrist.
Trinitarians subconsciously will not accept Jesus as just the Son alone, he has to be or be equal with God the Father. Jesus himself said that he is subject to the Father and God (or the Father) introduced Jesus as His Son when he was baptized by John the Baptist (and during the transfiguration on the Mountain!).
Another reason I believe that this doctrine is Antichrist is because the Spirit of TRUTH that comes from God to true believers also testifies (John 15:26).
“He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.” (Emphasis on His Son, not himself!)
1 John 5:10
You see Jesus is exactly who Peter said he was. There’s no doubt about it, he’s the Son of God!
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.” (Emphasis on he was “Jesus the Christ”, not “Jesus— God the son”)
Jesus is the Christ! The Son of the living God! And upon this rock (or knowledge) has the true church been established. He alone is our cornerstone, and no other foundation (or doctrine!) can be layed upon him. However, the captious will try to throw him in a box (called the “Godhead”) because to them, alone he’s an offense to their religious system.
And speaking of the Godhead…
” For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. “
All that means is that nature or character of God abided in him without measure. Don’t you know that you yourselves are also the temple of God’s Spirit!?
“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
You see, we may refer to Jesus as God—the Lord and Savior of our lives but Jesus is not “GOD”, the Hebrew God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Like he said, that’s his Father! And yes, they are one just like those of us who are joined to the Lord in spirit are also one ( 1 Corinthians 6:17) but God is not some 3 headed mythological creature (pun intended!).
I don’t care what is being learned in seminary! The wisdom of this world is foolishness don’t you get it!!!?
” Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. “
1 Corinthians 3:18-19
And not only is it foolish but it’s also DEMONIC!
“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.”
So my prayer is that we’ll steadily grow into the knowledge and understanding of the REAL Lord and Savior♥
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”
1 John 5:9-13
