TEACHING About GOD: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

For those that have been inundated by false claims regarding the Godhead, this page is for you. This page is also for the babe in Christ who has been approached by those that preach Jesus isn't God or the Holy Spirit doesn't exist. All too often the young in the faith are approached because those that preach this "expected" heresy know all too well that the elders, pastors and deacons within the Seventh Day Remnant church have done their homework and cannot be taken off the path by twisted passages in the Word of God or Spirit of Prophecy, and so they attack the young in the faith. This page will help you see they are twisting Scripture and some will openly lie regarding "certain verses" they claim must be removed from the Bible. This prophesied lie confirms they are moved by the same enemy of souls that moved Rome to remove those verses in the first place. It also shows the same evil spirit that is alive in the Vatican inspired Koran. What I mean is, because mankind, who is the author of the Koran, cannot possibly keep a lie going for eons, he must then declare a doctrine that says "old light is superseded by new light." This is how the Koran is written. If you find a passage in the Koran that contradicts another passage, the "newer" passage is trusted because it has now "evolved" into a new truth. Or as common sense dictates, they messed up, couldn't see the end from the beginning as the true God does, and so when "times change" so must their "holy" book.
The Bible of the Christian God never changes. In fact, it says in Malachi 3:6, "For I am the LORD, I change not;" That's how amazing His eternal truth is. It never needs to be shored up or changed to meet societal changes. When these people that preach Jesus isn't God or the Holy Spirit doesn't exist, they echo the Roman method used in the Koran that says "new light supersedes old light" when in fact the real Christian know, new light can never supersede old light. Our God's truth is that powerful!
Those preaching the "one God" theology are also borrowing theological definition from the Vatican in that their "One God" theology matches perfectly with the "Trinity" of Rome. How so? The Trinity is defined by declaring there is one God in three entities. The "one God" theist says there is one God with three entities as well. They claim the Godhead is made up of one "God the Father" and then His Son and then the breath or thought process they call the Holy Spirit. Hence, like Rome, they have one God with three entities. Notice the passages below that confirm they are being deceived. And if you want to know why the devil has moved them into this strong delusion, it has to do with using them to help him gather as many souls as he can into his camp to worship him as "one god." In fact, he has gotten ALL Christians denominations as well as ALL non-Christian denominations to do this. Click here for the biblical and historic facts on this.
 Is the Father a God?
First and foremost it's important we acknowledge God the Father to be in fact a God. Yes, this is not part of the issue with those that claim Jesus nor the Holy Spirit are Gods, but it is a blessing to declare the Father our God just as much as it is to declare His Son and Holy Spirit in the same manner. That being said, there are far too many verses in the Bible declaring the Father as a God, so I will only share a few. And I will only share from the New Testament so as to keep this short. There are over 150 verses in the Old Testament wherein the Words "God" and "Father" are found.
Truth is, even those embracing the false doctrines of the Trinity of Rome still do claim to understand the Father as a God. So I see no need to be exhaustive on this by any means. Still, there are some beautiful statements in the Word of this God we worship that do in fact declare Him our Father and our God and so I would like to share them here.
  • John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Fathersealed.
  • 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)
  • Galatians 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
  • Ephesians 6:23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the 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.
  • 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.
  • 2 Timothy 1:2 To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
  • 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 Saviour.
  • 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.
  • 2 Peter 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour 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.
  • 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.
  • 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:
Now yes, I understand that we see "God the Father" used often in unison with "our Lord Jesus Christ" in many of the above passages. That occurrence has caused many to assume Jesus is not a God but only our Lord. But they are only half right. What I mean is, the Word "Lord" is actually defined in Strongs # 2962 as a title given to "God the Messiah." Basic Biblical reality is, Jesus Christ is the only person of the Godhead that actually came to earth to die for man as a Saviour. This title as "Lord" is of great importance and is used often in the Word as an eternal title of respect towards Jesus for the simply act of love He displayed on Calvary. One has to also understand that since He walked a mile in our shoes He is the perfect example for us to follow. Hence, the term "Lord" is also meant to be defined as OUR Lord. Allowing Him Lordship over us as we walk through life is not only a beautiful way to say we love Him, it's also concrete evidence that He is Lord.
As you will see in the following verses, Jesus is in fact a God as well as a man that was sent to die for us. The following passages assure us that that calling Him "Lord" does not take away from His divinity as a God. In the context of truth, Jesus is both God and Lord to all those that have accepted Him as Saviour. The following passages confirm this in great detail.

 Is Jesus Christ a God? Just a "few" of the MANY passages that reflect His eternal truth. Jesus is and always was a God!
After Thomas doubted Jesus appeared to other disciples, Jesus returned 8 days later to show Thomas the scars on His body. Then Thomas responded...
  • John 20:28, "And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God."
  •  Acts 7:59, "And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesusreceive my spirit."
 Stephen calls upon GOD, and according to this passage the God he chose to speak to when he called out was in fact, JESUS.
  • Revelation 1:5-6, "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."
Here we see John the Apostle introducing the visions he received in the Book of Revelation. He speaks of Jesus Christ quite plainly, and in the same breath declares Jesus is declaring Himself God as He speaks of making us kings and priests unto Him. He continues and uses the term "AND" His Father when He declares we are His Father's kings and priests as well. The "God" being spoken of here by John is obviously Jesus because Jesus is His only Son and after saying "God" John says "AND His Father" to show that Jesus is a God.
  • Romans 2:16, "In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel."
God judges. What is that Judge's name? We get a hint in Romans 2:16 that it is Jesus Christ. But some will twist that out of context and declare the judgment is only based on the character of Jesus. If that is so, then they need to read the following verse to be blessed with truth.
  • 2 Timothy 4:1, "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;"
Seems pretty plain does it not? Jesus is the one that judges and in Romans 2:16 it plainly said "God shall judge." No gray areas there.
  • John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
Here we see the Scripture saying the "Word was WITH God, and then it says the Word WAS God." That's two God's mentioned in one verse! According to the one God theist this verse will have to be deleted if their creed is ever to hold up to scrutiny.
  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Here we see "the Word" further verified as Jesus Christ because He is the only one from Heaven that "dwelt among us." Since John 1:1 says the Word is God and we know Jesus was manifested in the flesh, then Jesus has to be a God. To say otherwise would mean we are liars. Plus, 1 Timothy 3:16 lays the controversy to rest even more so in that it plainly says that "God was manifest in the flesh" and even a babe in Christ knows that it speaks of Jesus and how He came to dwell among us.
    Now for a few very powerful verses that one God theists will never respond to nor will they ever share from their pulpits, for in so doing they will be exposed as liars.
    • Hebrews 1:8-9, "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."
    By the way, for those that say this verse is invalid and should be deleted from the Bible, they would also need to rip out it's distant echo found in Psalm 45:7 that says, "Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." Paul was actually quoting Psalm 45:7.
    By the way, this is why one God theists prefer to share their heresy with babes in Christ or new students in the Truth. They know they probably haven't studied as their elders have.  
    • Hebrews 1:6, "And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him."
    Unless the one God theist is preaching God the Father was "the firstbegotten into the world" they cannot use this passage in their churches either because everyone knows Jesus is the firstbegotten and according to the latter end of the verse, the angels of God worship Him. That further confrms He is a God.
    Now for some rather blunt verses that tie the Son of God, Saviour and Creator as a literal God...
    •  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."

  •  1 Timothy 2:3, "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;"
  • Isaiah 43:11-15, "I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it? Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships. I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King."
  • 1 John 5:20, "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath 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."

  • So.. is Jesus Christ equal to God?
    • Philippians 2:5-6, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:"
    NOTE: In John 1 it said the "Word was WITH God" and then it said the "Word was God" in that passage? This not only declares Jesus is the Word, but as a God He was "with" God as well.
    As most will agree, it was God Himself at Sinai that wrote the Ten Commandments.
    • Jesus said... John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
    Another time Jesus was approached by a rich man who claimed to understand who he was. Jesus knew He knew who He was as is clear in the following passage.
    • Matthew 19:16-17, "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments."
    The rich man plainly called Jesus "Good Master." Jesus then said "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God", in return. Jesus then quotes the last 6 commandments to the man in the following verses when instructing him on what he needed to do. He didn't quote the previous 4 commandments because the man called Jesus "Good Master" which meant he already understood the first 4 commandments. The last 6 commandments deal with how we love each other. But the first four were never shared with the man by Jesus because he already appeared to know who God was. The first four commandments deal with how we love God. Why would Jesus declare calling Him "Good Master" was the same as calling Him God if it wasn't true?
    One more thing to keep in mind in regards to Jesus Christ being God. When they declare Him to be either non-existent at one time or only a man and not God or even part of the Godhead they are in essence denying Him as a God are they not? What does the Word say of such people?
    • 1 John 2:22-23, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also."
    Not only are they considered to be liars and without the Father when they deny His Son, they are also declared by the Word of God itself to be in fact one of the many antichrists we find running rampant in these last days.
    • 1 John 5:20, "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath 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."
    Can't be said any plainer than that!

     Is the Holy Spirit a God?
    We know the Father is a God because of numerous Scripture on it. However, have you noticed that false teachers use only the verses pertaining to Him while avoiding the above verses pertaining to His Son in their battle to confuse. But what of the Holy Spirit? Does the Word declare Him a God as well, further proving the "one God" or "Trinity" theory to be false?
    • Acts 5:3-4, "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God."
    If the Holy Spirit is just the breath of God or a joint thought process between the Father and the Son, then how is it possible to lie TO the Holy Ghost as Peter just accused Ananias? And then later in the passage Peter tells Ananias that he just lied UNTO GOD! That one verse alone proves Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, is declaring the Holy Spirit is a God that can be lied to.
    Does the Word also share characteristics of the Holy Spirit that prove it to be a separate person all on its own?
    • The Holy Spirit has Omnipresence. He is everywhere
      Psalms 139:7, "
      Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?".
    • The Holy Spirit is eternalHebrews 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 Holy Spirit is all powerfulLuke 1:35, "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." 
    •  The Holy Spirit has a mindRomans 8:27, "And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." 
    • The Holy Spirit helped to settle questions during the Church Council at JerusalemActs 15:28, "For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;" 
    • The Holy Spirit dispenses gifts to different individuals according as He wills1 Corinthians 12:8-11, "For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;  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:  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."
    • The Holy Spirit forbade some from going to preach in certain placesActs 16:6-7, "Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,  After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not." 
    • The Holy Spirit anointed Jesus and sent Him out to preach the gospelLuke 4:18-19, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." 
    The above passages show all sorts of instances wherein the Holy Spirit does things on His own for the people of God. Plus, if the Holy Sprit is just a breath or thought of God the Father, why don't the apostles just use the name of the Father when declaring certain things were happening. After all, if it's the Father, then say so. That being said, notice the next verse that says BOTH the Father and the Spirit sent Jesus to do as He did for us.
    • Isaiah 48:16, "Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me."
    If the Holy Spirit was only a thought or a breath of God, then why is He being mentioned separately in regards to sending Jesus?
    • The Holy Spirit impregnated Mary with the child Jesus!
      Luke 1:31-35, "And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon theeand the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God."
    Again, we see the Father AND the Holy Spirit being mentioned separately.
    • The Holy Spirit testifies or witnesses of JesusJohn 15:26, "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:" 
    Is Jesus being deceptive and saying the Holy Sprit will testify of Him when in fact it's only "the Father's Spirit" testifying? Saying the Holy Spirit is just the Father's or Jesus' mind or thoughts makes Him to be a liar when you read this verse.
    • The Holy Spirit leads God’s peopleRomans 8:14, "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." 
    • The Holy Spirit teaches and causes us to remember the truthJohn 14:26, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my namehe shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." 
    • The Holy Spirit comforts us as does ChristJohn 14:16, "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;" 
    • The Holy Spirit reproves us of sin, righteousness, and judgmentJohn 16:7-8, "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.  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:" 
    • The Holy Spirit instructs usNehemiah 9:20, "Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst." 
    •  The Holy Spirit speaks, guides, hears and shows.John 16:13-15, "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: andhe will shew you things to come.  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you." 
    Did you notice that in that verse it states the Holy Spirit will HEAR and then tell us what He hears? If the Holy Spirit is just the "thought" of Jesus or the Father, how is this possible?
    • The Holy Spirit speaks, chooses, calls and sends forthActs 13:2-4, "As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.  And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.  So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus." 
    • The Holy Spirit gives messages to prophets and they declare: “Thus saith the Holy Ghost” Acts 21:11, "And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles."
    • The Holy Spirit has knowledge, and searches all things1 Corinthians 2:10-11, "But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God." 
    • The Holy Spirit sanctifies usRomans 15:16, "That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost." 
    • The Holy Spirit holds communion with us2 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. "
    • The Holy Spirit is the source of regeneration and renewal for salvation (see John 3:5-8; Titus 3:5).John 3:5-8, "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit." Titus 3:5, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" 
    • The Holy Spirit resurrects the faithful from the dead (see Romans 8:11; 1 Peter 3:18).Romans 8:11, "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." 1 Peter 3:18, "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:" 
    If the Spirit is just the "thoughts" of Jesus, how did it raise Him from the dead? Wouldn't it have been just as easy to say the Father did the raising instead?
    • The Holy Spirit is the author of the Bible and moved upon the prophets to speak2 Peter 1:21, "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 
    • The Holy Spirit is another Comforter other than ChristJohn 14:16, "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;"
    Why would Jesus pray for ANOTHER Comforter if it was just Him all along?
    • The Holy Spirit helps our infirmitiesRomans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." 
    • The Holy Spirit can be tempted and lied to Acts 5:3, "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?"
      Acts 5:9, "Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye 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 thee out." 
    • The Holy Spirit can be blasphemedMatthew 12:31, "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."
      Mark 3:28-29, "Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:  But he that shall 
      blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:"
      Luke 12:10, "And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that 
      blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven."
    Keep in mind, the term "blasphemy" can only be attributed to a GOD.
    • The Holy Spirit is another Intercessor other than ChristRomans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."
     Basic facts about the Holy Spirit
    • Galatians 4:6, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father."
    If the Spirit is just a "thought" process of the Father or the Son as some preach, why is it the Father is sending forth the Spirit of His Son? Why not send forth His own Spirit? This proves the Spirit of the Son is a separate being altogether.
    • John 14:16, "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;"
    If the Spirit is just a "thought" process of the Father or the Son, why is it the Father is sending forth ANOTHER Comforter? Who is the Comforter?
    • 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."
    The phrase "He shall teach you..." denotes the Spirit is a separate being. If it was just the thought process of Jesus it would say "I shall teach you..."
    • John 15:26, "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:"
    • 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."
    Here the Comforter is spoken of in the THIRD PERSON by saying, "HE shall testify of ME "I will send HIM unto you." Now for the clincher...
    • John 16:13, "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."
     If the Holy Spirit is just a "thought" process of the Father or the Son, how can "HE" guide you, or how can the term "HIMSELF" be used, and especially, how can he "HEAR" things to speak to us about? Is God talking to Himself? That makes no sense.
    If you deny the Holy Spirit exists, than all the promises shared above regarding what He will do for you in life are forfeited by YOU! Now do you see why your prayer life is so lacking?

     Should 1 John 5:7 be removed?
    Please click the above link. It's a video of Dr Carl Baugh, a well known creationist speaker, scientist and author. He has sufficiently exposed every lie about evolution and I have used his works many times over the years to help evolutionists see they have been lied to. In this video, he is speaking on evolution, but fast forward to 12:00 in the video and listen to what he says for the next 17 minutes! (Baugh has a tendency to be very thorough) Pay special close attention when the video gets to about 16:47 in the video.
    First and foremost, no I don't trust Dr Baugh's Trinitarian doctrines, as I have ample evidence Rome invented it, and I don't trust TBN as it is being used by Satan to confuse Christians all over the world to join in Rome's long prophesied ecumenical charge. But, Dr Baugh does unearth some tangible historic evidence, in hand in fact, that I believe can be very valuable to everyone that's dealing with loved ones trapped in the prophesied "one god" movement that heralds the arrival of Antichrist. It has to do with 1John 5:7 and how some preach it is not supposed to be in the Bible. Some of you are going to be shocked by what's in this video!
    In short, you will find in this video that he reveals using actual ancient manuscripts that 1 John 5:7 was in fact in the original manuscripts that laid the foundation for the King James Bible we have today. As I stated earlier, there are some to this day that say it is not supposed to be in there because (they claim) it wasn't in the original manuscripts. Baugh also outlines the fact that 1 John 5:7 wasn't in Vatican and other corrupted manuscripts, (and this is why it's removed from the NIV and other bogus bibles) but it was in the inspired one that was used for the King James version of the Bible as well as the manuscript Martin Luther used to translate his Bible into German during the Reformation.
    It cost an immense amount of money to get this old book in hand and I praise God it was Dr Baugh that was called to receive it because others made offers to try and get it away from him. The reason I am glad he got it and not them was because, had they bought it, this truth may have never been confirmed or placed in a museum where anyone can view it. Yes, it's true that those of us that have the truth within, already know the truth about 1 John 5:7 which says...
    • 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."
    Those that claim Jesus isn't God and the Holy Spirit doesn't exist hate this passage with a passion as it proves they are being moved by Satan to preach his lies to the masses. Many have believed their lies over the years to such an extent that some of the modern day Bibles actually removed this passage from the book of 1 John, and some even have footnotes declaring the verse to be uninspired so as to hide the truth about the Godhead. But now, Dr Carl Baugh actually has the book in his museum that was used as the foundation of the King James that proves 1John 5:7 WAS IN THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT all along! Those that lied were hoping this book would never be uncovered or even found. But the truth will always come forth.
    As is shared in the video, Dr Baugh paid just under $30,000 for the book and someone did try to buy it out from under him for $100,000 a few days before he got the rest of the money. Me thinks they wanted that book to keep this demonic doctrine alive so as to better herald the arrival of the "one god" Christian prophecy describes as THE antichrist!
    And no, those of us that know Jesus personally never needed the original manuscript to verify the truth on this as we have His promised Holy Spirit within and we know all too well how to study doctrine as Isaiah 28:10 says is done by checking every "precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:" All we need is the Word to verify the truth and expose the lies. But now that we have concrete evidence in hand which can be viewed by anyone visiting the Glendale Creationist Museum in Glendal Texas, it makes our job that much easier!
    By the way, since those claiming Jesus isn't God and the Holy Spirit doesn't exist insist that this bible verse should be removed, as does Rome, then they have to agree that the other 2000 - 3000 verses removed by the Vatican in all the "bogus bibles" are also worthy to be removed. They cannot say, "only this verse" because it was the Vatican that removed it along with all the others. In short, as prophesied, they are "wondering after the beast" just like all the others in the world. So.. pray for them.

     For the SDA that trusts Spirit of Prophecy
    Many babes in the truth are being approached by some that preach this "one God" theology that have no grasp on the Word of God and rarely use it at all. However, they do use a lot of Ellen White comments and 100% of them are all out of context, They build a bridge of deception by sharing out of context phrases from Spirit of Prophecy (SOP) and then filter it with many strange comments of their own that are designed to shore up their twisted SOP phrases. In all cases they claim Ellen White never once said the Holy Spirit is an actual person. However, the following list below confirms they boldly lied to gather a soul into apostasy with them.
    • "There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers --the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit--those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.-- Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, pp. 62, 63. (1905)  -Evangelism 615.1
    • "Those who proclaim the third angel's message must put on the whole armor of God, that they may stand boldly at their post, in the face of detraction and falsehood, fighting the good fight of faith, resisting the enemy with the word, "It is written." Keep yourselves where the three great powers of heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, can be your efficiency. These powers work with the one who gives himself unreservedly to God. The strength of heaven is at the command of God's believing ones. The man who takes God as his trust is barricaded by an impregnable wall.--The Southern Watchman, Feb. 23, 1904, p. 122.
    • "Our sanctification is the work of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is the fulfillment of the covenant that God has made with those who bind themselves up with Him, to stand with Him, with His Son, and with His Spirit in holy fellowship. Have you been born again? Have you become a new being in Christ Jesus? Then co-operate with the three great powers of heaven who are working in your behalf. Doing this you will reveal to the world the principles of righteousness.  -Signs of the Times, June 19, 1901 par. 4
    • "God has never left Himself without witness on the earth. At one time Melchisedek represented the Lord Jesus Christ in person, to reveal the truth of heaven, and perpetuate the law of God (Letter 190, 1905).
    • “We need to realize that the Holy Spirit, who is as much a person as God is a person, is walking through these grounds.--Manuscript 66, 1899. (From a talk to the students at the Avondale School.)  {Ev 616.5} 
    •  "The Holy Spirit is a person, for He beareth witness with our spirits that we are the children of God. When this witness is borne, it carries with it its own evidence. At such times we believe and are sure that we are the children of God. . . .  {Ev 616.6} 
    • "The Holy Spirit has a personality, else He could not bear witness to our spirits and with our spirits that we are the children of God. He must also be a divine person, else He could not search out the secrets which lie hidden in the mind of God. "For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God."--Manuscript 20, 1906.  {Ev 617.1} 
    • "The prince of the power of evil can only be held in check by the power of God in the third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit.--Special Testimonies, Series A, No. 10, p. 37. (1897)  {Ev 617.2} 
    • "We are to co-operate with the three highest powers in heaven,--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, --and these powers will work through us, making us workers together with God.--Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 51. (1905)  {Ev 617.3}
    Sister White also declares the following regarding the Holy Spirit...
    • The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it, because the Lord has not revealed it to them. Men having fanciful views may bring together passages of Scripture and put a human construction on them, but the acceptance of these views will not strengthen the church. Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.” -Acts of the Apostles p 52
    • “In 1888 in the General Conference held at Minneapolis, Minn, the angel of Revelation 18 came down to do His work, and was ridiculed, criticized and rejected. And when the message He brings again, swells into a loud cry, it will again be ridiculed, spoken against and be rejected by the majority.” -Ellen G. White in Taking up a Reproach. 1888.
    • The Holy Ghost is the author of the Scriptures and of the Spirit of Prophecy" -Selected Messages Vol. 3 p 30.3
