What EXACTLY is the Trinity Doctrine? Second Wind: Winds of Doctrine: Vain, groundless opinions, propagated all over the earth.

The Bible says in Joshua 24:23, "Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel."

Five Major Problems With The Trinity - Sean Finnegan: https://youtu.be/-qxvmP-NzN4

First Wind is:
The Operation of God's Spirit, Joel 3:8

Second Wind is:
Winds of Doctrine: Vain, groundless opinions, propagated all over the earth.

The Trinity is vain, groundless opinions, propagated all over theorldw

Third Wind is:

Sin and Temptation: Isaiah 64:6; Matthew 7:25.

Fourth Wind is:


Four Quarters of the earth:  Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
How shall we understand this? Answer: Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

FOUR WINDS: What are these? Answer: Figurative of the four sore judgements of God, viz: Sword, Famine, Noisom Beasts and Pestilence. See Eze. 14:21. Explained under the head A WIND.



"And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouthExodus 23:13.

ALL those who don't believe that Jesus risen, quickened Spirit (1 Cor 15:45) both human and divine, His very soul, His very risen life comes into our fleshy bodies (Romans 8:9) are anti-Christ

"And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (Jesus Christ) was made a quickening spirit" 1 Corinthians 15:45.

"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world" 1 John 4:3.

Testing the Spirits
1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

So those who believe the Holy Spirit is someone other than Christ ARE ANTICHRIST.

"WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST” {Lt66-1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW.

"“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.” “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” “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. Little children keep yourselves from idols.” The Lord is soon to come. We want that complete and perfect understanding which the Lord alone can give. It is not safe to catch the spirit from another (other than Christ). WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRITWHICH IS JESUS CHRIST. If we commune with God, we shall have strength and grace and efficiency” {Lt 66, 1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW.

"Christ is to be known by the blessed name of Comforter.” {Ms7-1902 (January 26, 1902) par. 10} - EGW.

     THE GODHEAD

 

This word “Godhead” is mentioned only three times in Scripture, and all these originated with Paul.  The first time is recorded by Luke in Acts 17 where Paul is addressing certain Athenians on Mar’s Hill in Athens, Greece.

     In his address, he uses “God” and “Godhead” interchangeably, showing that the true deity, the living God, Jehovah, the eternal Father, or as Ellen White states:  “Jehovah, the eternal, self-existent, uncreated One.”  (PP. 305)

 

     In Romans Chapter 1 is found the second time Paul uses the term Godhead.  Here again, all through the chapter beginning with verse 1, the word “God” has reference to the Eternal Father, because His Son is referred to in verse 3, making a distinction between the two.  Jesus Christ in this verse is called “His Son,” or God’s Son, and also in verse 4 “the Son of God.”  So in all the succeeding verses where the word “God” is used we know it means “the Father.”  Then we come to verse 20 where it says again, as in verse 3, “His” eternal power and Godhead.  Just as the Son is “His” Son (verse 3) so the Godhead is “His” Godhead. verse 20.  The Godhead belongs to the Father just as the Son belongs to the Father.  Paul wrote to the Corinthians that “the Head of Christ is God”  1 Cor. 11:3.  This makes “God” (the Father) the “Godhead.”

 

      Then third time and last time Paul uses the term is in Col. 2:9, where he says that in Christ dwells all the fullness of the godhead bodily, meaning that in His Son dwells all the fullness of the Father, for Jesus said, “He that hath seen Me, hath seen the Father.” John 14:9.  So we have established by the consistency of God’s Word that the “Godhead” means the eternal Father, Jehovah.  So when we read about the “third person of the Godhead” in the EGW Writings, we are to understand that it is the 3rd manifestation of the Father.  The 1st Person is the Father Himself.  The 2nd Person is His Son, who was begotten or made in the Fathers exact, express image. The 3rd Person is the Holy Spirit, the life-giving energy and power flowing from the Father through, and from , His Son; and since they are both “Persons,” and it is flowing from them, as Persons, it has the characteristics of their persons, and so it is referred to as the 3rd Person, though in and of itself, it is not a Person with visible, bodily form, as the Father and His Son have.  In 7T. 273, Ellen White states:

 

     “In giving us His Spirit, God gives us Himself, making Himself a Fountain of divine influences, to give health and life to the world.”

 

     When Jesus was on earth with His disciples, the Spirit of God the Father, in Him, (See John 3:34) comforted them in His (the Son’s) visible human form.  After His ascension to His Father, His Spirit, which had been in Him while on earth, was sent down from the Father (See John 14:26 & 15:26 to be in them (the disciples) as it had been in Christ, and to remain in them on earth, and forever to be their Comforter, and thus His Spirit  Christ’s Spirit, which is the Fathers Spirit (See Romans 8:9) abiding in them, constituted “another” Comforter, (because invisible, whereas Christ had been visible) and yet it was indeed the same Spirit which had been with them in the person of Christ for 3 ½  years, in His humanity and His ministry on earth. “The Lord is that Spirit.”  2 Cor. 3:17.  The “Spirit of the Lord” (Jesus) same verse.  One cannot separate the Lord’s Spirit from Him and make it as separate entity in and of itself anymore than one can separate the sunbeams from the sun and make them a separate entity from the sun itself.

 

     Ellen White describes the Holy Spirit as “the highest influence in the universe.”  DA 679.  She describes it as “emanating” from God, “the Source of all power.” (Ibid)  She describes it as “the life of Christ.”  DA 805.  The Holy Spirit is the life of God, the presence of God, the power of God.

 

     The trinity doctrine has brought Babylon’s Confusion into the ranks of Seventh-day Adventism, causing much perplexity, darkness of mind, and controversy which has gendered intolerance, hostility, and alienation; whereas the truth about God brings brotherly love and unity in the truth as it is in Jesus.


For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Messiah,' and will deceive many.

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man (Satan) of lawlessness is revealed, the man (Satan) doomed to destruction.

1 John 2:18
Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

1 John 2:22
Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ (is come into our fleshy body when we invite Him to enter us = our Spirit house). Such a person is the antichrist--denying the Father and the Son.

Millions believe the Holy Spirit is someone other than the Son of God entered into them, into their fleshy body (our body is a host for either Christ's Spirit or Satan's Spirit). This IS the Anti-Christ belief we have been warned against in the Bible (2 John 1:7):

Inline image 1

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS JESUS CHRIST. 


"WE WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST” {Lt66-1894 (April 10, 1894) par. 18} - EGW.

IF YOU BELIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SOMEONE OTHER THAN CHRIST IN YOU, IN YOUR FLESH THAT IS THE ANTICHRIST TEACHING/DOCTRINE. BEWARE YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY IS AT STAKE. 



1 Cor 6:19 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"

"At that day you shall KNOW that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you" John 14:20 

"Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit (Soul/life of Christ), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" John 3:5 (KJV).

2 John 1:7
I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

To KNOW and UNDERSTAND GOD AND HIS SON IS ETERNAL LIFE PER JOHN 17:3 AND JER 9:24.

Don't let anybody tell you it is a MYSTERY (Rev 17:5) to KNOW AND UNDERSTAND GOD AND HIS SON. THE BIBLE IS VERY PLAIN ABOUT THAT. WE CAN KNOW AND UNDERSTAND GOD AND HIS SON!

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" 2 Timothy 2:15.

Romans 6:13
Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

Ephesians 1:13
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,

James 1:12
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

James 1:18
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" Romans 6:16.

To know and understand this means eternal life.

May God bless and help us as we seek to know and understand Him more fully.

  1. Righteousness by Faith Vs. The Trinity - Nader Mansour
    Video: The Seal & The Mark (TN) - Nader Mansour

    A video history of the SDA church regarding the Trinity: 
    A MUST WATCH VIDEO: https://youtu.be/8Zs3dT1afQw


    Did you know that your character (your thoughts and feelings make up your moral character) and whether you have a evil or holy/perfect character is determined by what God you worship? See a short video here about this: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6Q5G3Gdwe8&feature=youtu.be



Perfect or Holy simply means to be in constant agreement with God, abiding in Him. This means to be in constant agreement with God's 10 Commandments, His royal perpetual ten laws. God's law is perfect and could not be changed, otherwise God's Son would not have had to die for us if it could have been changed. Satan first attacks by confusing our minds by putting strange gods in place for us to worship...showing Himself that he is god...having a form of worship but denying the power (character=thoughts and feelings) thereof. The Kingdom of Heaven/Christ or Earth/Satan is about CHARACTER! We have the character of the God we host. We are a medium/channel/host either for Christ or Satan. Our thoughts words and actions reflect the Spirit/character of the God we host and channel to others. Satan's thoughts, words and actions or Christ's thoughts, words and actions. Think about it. Who do you think like? Talk like? Act like? Especially in a crisis. This is the test that will tell who we are connected to. We need to cast our helpless souls upon Christ, our Burden Bearer.


Everything depends on the right action of the will. Desires for goodness and purity are right, so far as they go; but if we stop here, they avail nothing. Many will go down to ruin while hoping and desiring to overcome their evil propensities. They do not yield the will (choices/mind) to God. They do not choose to serve Him.


1978 Letter found in a old purse of my Mothers in her closet - about the Trinity - a must readhttps://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2Ff6LGwUlCSWXJmZ2h6Q3B5Xzg/view


God has given us the power of choice; it is ours to exercise. We cannot change our hearts, we cannot control our thoughts, our impulses, our affections. We cannot make ourselves pure, fit for God's service. But we can choose to serve God, we can give Him our will (our choices! our consent! to give assent or approval); then He will work in us to will and to do according to His good pleasure. Thus our whole nature will be brought under the control of Christ.


You receive the character of who you worship! Thoughts become feelings, feelings become words, words become actions, actions become destiny. Destiny is either eternal life or eternal death (2nd death). This is determined by what God you worship and by worshiping either the false god or the one and only true God, you receive their character, their thoughts and feelings, their attitude towards others. 

Here are the two characters (either evil or holy) defined by what God we worship:

First described is the character of the God of this world who is Satan (because Adam ate the forbidden fruit) and of those who are a host/medium/channel for Satan:
                        
                      SATAN'S CHARACTER GOES INTO HIS HOSTS OR MEDIUM/CHANNELS FOR HIM:
Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Second described is the character of the person who has followed Acts 2:38, daily, moment by moment his/her thoughts turn to God in the name of His Son whenever something against God's royal perpetual law comes into mind, and says in their mind or out loud, "Heavenly Daddy, save me or I perish" they claim Christ's blood sacrifice as their very own prize moment by moment, they say, "Take me oh Lord as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at thy feet. Use me today in thy service. Abide with me and let all my work be wrought in Thee". This describes those who are a host/medium/channel for God's character through His only begotten Son. "At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." John 14:20:
 
                    CHRIST'S CHARACTER GOES INTO HIS HOSTS OR MEDIUM/CHANNELS FOR HIM
Galatians 5:22-26 "But the fruit of the Spirit [of God's Spirit (Words/character/thoughts and feelings, His Power=Character and Presence) channeled through Christ into us] is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

CHARACTER IS POWER. The character of Christ in you IS the Kingdom of God come into you. SO if you worship any other gods besides the one and only immortal, invisible, wise God, you will not be a host/medium/channel for God's Spirit through Christ's righteousness, His merits, His WORDS. We are to be a host/home/sacred dwelling place for BOTH God the Father and the Son of God. John 14:23 "

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode (home/host/medium/channel) with him."

Here are the verses for you to consider about the Bible stating plainly that there are TWO BEINGS, not three who are God:

1) "He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath BOTH the Father and the Son." 2 John 1:9

2) If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated BOTH me and my Father. John 15:24

3) Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them BOTH. Zechariah 6:13

4) "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my wordsand my Father will love him, andwe will come unto him, and make our abode with him." John 14:23 Notice this verse only mentions two beings.

  • "And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." Luke 4:8
  • the head of Christ is God." 1 Corinthians 11:3 
  • "And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's." (KJV) 1 Corinthians 3:23
  • Galatians 3:29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him (the God and Father of Jesus) who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all. 
  • Jesus said in John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

  • The King of the universe summoned the heavenly hosts before Him, that in their presence He might set forth the true position of His Son, and show the relation He sustained to all created beings. The Son of God shared the Father's throne, and the glory of the eternal, self-existent One encircled both.

    "It may be objected, If the Father and the Son are two distinct beings, do you not, in worshipping the Son and calling him God, break the first commandment of the decalogue? "No; it is the Father's will 'That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father.' We cannot break the commandment and dishonor God by obeying him. The Fathers says of the Son, 'Let all the angels of God worship him.' Should angels refuse to worship the Son, they would rebel against the Father. Children inherit the name of their Father. The Son of God 'hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than' the angels. That name is the name of his Father. The Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever.' Heb.1. The Son is called 'The mighty God.' Isa. 9:6. And when he comes again to earth his waiting people will exclaim, 'This is our God.' Isa. 25:9. It is the will of the Father that we should thus honor the Son. In doing so we render supreme honor to the Father. If we dishonor the Son, we dishonor the Father; for he requires us to honor his son. "But though the Son is called God yet there is a 'God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ' 1Pet. 1:3. Though the Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever,' yet, that throne is given him of his Father; and because he loved righteousness and hated iniquity, he further says, 'Therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee.' Heb. 1:9. 'God hath made that same Jesus both Lord and Christ.' Acts. 2:36. The Son is 'the everlasting Father,' not of himself, nor of his Father, but of his children. His language is, 'I and the children which God hath given me.' Heb. 2:13." Review and Herald, June 1, 1869.

    1 Cor 8:6 plainly states who God is. God, the Father and God of Christ. Ephesians 1:3

    Christ, the Word, the only begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father,--one in nature, in character, in purpose,--the only being that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. "His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of peace" (Isaiah 9:6). His "goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting" (Micah 5:2).

    He came from heaven, GOD's first-born, to the earth, and was born again:

    "The promise that Jesus would come as our Savior had been made in the Garden of Eden. When Adam and Eve first heard it, they expected a quick fulfillment. So when they held their firstborn son in their arms, they both hoped he would be the Redeemer. But that was not to be. Thousands of years later, as God’s appointed time came, Jesus left heaven to be born in Bethlehem." The Desire of Ages, 31, 32., A Call to Stand Apart, p. 14.1

    the light of dawn, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18, R.V., margin.
    “These things have I spoken unto you,” said Christ, “that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:11.
    Ever before Him, Christ saw the result of His mission. His earthly life, so full of toil and self-sacrifice, was cheered by the thought that He would not have all this travail for nought. By giving His life for the life of men, He would restore in humanity the image of God. He would lift us up from the dust, reshape the character after the pattern of His own character, and make it beautiful with His own glory.
    Christ saw of the travail of His soul and was satisfied. He viewed the expanse of eternity and saw the happiness of those who through His humiliation should receive pardon and everlasting life. He was wounded for their transgressions, bruised for their iniquities. The chastisement of their peace was upon Him, and with His stripes they were healed. He heard the shout of the redeemed. He heard the ransomed ones singing the song of Moses and the Lamb. Although the baptism of blood must first be received, although the sins of the world were to weigh upon His innocent soul, although the shadow of an unspeakable woe was upon Him; yet for the joy that was set before Him He chose to endure the cross and despised the shame.
    This joy all His followers are to share. However great and glorious hereafter, our reward is not all to be reserved for the time of final deliverance. Even here we are by faith to enter into the Saviour’s joy. Like Moses, we are to endure as seeing the Invisible.
    Now the church is militant. Now we are confronted with a world in darkness, almost wholly given over to idolatry.

    So if you worship any of the confusing false and strange gods Satan has put in place to deceive you, your character (thoughts and feelings, your actions) will reflect that you are a host for Satan and his evil angels by your thoughts, words and actions, which will determine your destiny of either eternal life or eternal death. The following description is our carnal nature and are what you will be a medium/channel or host for and will be the fruit from Satan's character, his thoughts and feelings that you will bring forth: "Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings..." Galatians 5:19-21 "they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

    If you want to inherit the "kingdom of God" you must believe in Christ the only Son of the only living God and claim Christ's blood sacrifice as your very own prize/covering/safety from the SOON coming 7 last plagues. Believe that HE IS and HE IS a rewarder of those who SEEK HIM. "The Father and Son ALONE are to be EXALTED." Sons and Daughters of God, p. 58.5 "Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper." 2 Chronicles 20:20

    "The last message of mercy is to be given to the world by the proclamation of gospel truth. Truth, Bible truth—this is what the people need. On our knees we are to claim the promises of God’s Word, asking that we may receive pure, unadulterated truth, and that we may realize the necessity of giving this truth to others. Then men and women will be converted. The hand of God will be recognized in the raising up of new churches. The Lord will baptize with the apostolic spirit (zealous effort is represented by the fire on their heads in the upper room and will again come in 10 times the power) many who will go forth to do missionary work in places where the people know not the truth." LIFT HIM UP, PAGE 123 

    Find Bible verses that are specific to your circumstances and claim them as the voice of God Himself speaking to you through His only begotten Son. Bible promises such as Jude 1:24 "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy," When the Son channels/sends/gives down His Father's Spirit (Words) John 6:63 KJV " the WORDS that I speak unto you, THEY ARE SPIRIT, and they are life." It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing. When the one and only begotten true Son of the only immortal God is believed in, accepted, it becomes your very own intellectual concept of God and His Son. We enter into God's GATE (Christ=John 10:9) through THANKSGIVING - thanking and rejoicing to God in the name of His Son for our trials/problems that God sends us to mold us and shape us what He wants us to be. We enter into God's COURTS by PRAISE to God for His goodness and mercy to us. Read Psalms chapter 136 to see how King David did this. 

    John 10:9
    I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 

    Also Psalms 100:4 says "
    Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."  

    Jeremiah 33:11 "
    the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the LORD, saying, "Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever." The soldiers of Christ were close beside the gates of the city, and with joy the city received her King. The kingdom of peace and joy and everlasting righteousness was established.

    "...
    to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever." 2 Chronicles 20:21 

    " clothed with the garments of praise and thanksgiving,—the robe of Christ’s righteousness." RH November 26, 1903, par. 4

    "Now the church is militant. Now we are confronted with a world in midnight darkness, almost wholly given over to idolatry. But the day is coming in which the battle will have been fought, the victory won. The will of God is to be done on earth, as it is done in heaven. Then the nations will own no other law than the law of heaven. All will be a happy, united family, clothed with the garments of praise and thanksgiving,—the robe of Christ’s righteousness. All nature, in its surpassing loveliness, will offer to God a constant tribute of praise and adoration. The world will be bathed in the light of heaven. The years will move on in gladness. The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold greater than it is now. Over the scene the morning stars will sing together, and the sons of God will shout for joy, while God and Christwill unite in proclaiming, “There shall be no more sin, neither shall there be any more death.” The Ministry of Healing, p. 504.5

    For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,' says the LORD.
     Psalm 92:13 "Planted in the house of the LORD (pure unadulterated truth in their minds, settled in the truth), they will flourish in the courts of our God." 

    Christ is VICTORIOUS! His VICTORY IS OURS! (DA123) ABLE TO KEEP YOU FROM SINNING AND TO PRESENT YOU FAULTLESS BEFORE HIS FATHER!!! Hold your Bible up, point to the verse and tell God that He has promised and you believe and expect that promise to be fulfilled because God said it. His word will not return unto Him void. CLAIM THAT VERSE AS YOUR TICKET TO HEAVEN! Cast yourself and all that you have into the arms of God through His Son and be very sure that anything he wants of you, He will fit you for the work and give you strength and resources to do it!

    "True faith (expectation, living reality of Christ living in you shining out of you to others) rests on the Promises contained in the Word of God, and those only who obey (live) that Word can claim its glorious Promises." Early Writings, p. 72.2 

    You are trying to get people to come out of Babylon (baptized Paganism) but I am trying to get Babylon (baptized paganism) out of YOU!

    So if you worship the true God through His only door/risen Christ back to be reconciled back to God, which is through His only begotten Son, you will receive God's character, which the 10 Commandments are a transcript of. By humbling yourself, casting all your troubles and trials on Christ, Christ comes into us and makes us Holy (in constant agreement with God, His Father, this is abiding in Christ, asking Him for help, turning to Christ as naturally as the flower turns to the sun, we turn to Christ. Christ is our first thought of who to go to in time of need or trouble - not mankind). 

    When in trouble, many think they must appeal to some earthly friend, telling him their perplexities, and begging for help. Under trying circumstances unbelief fills their hearts, and the way seems dark. And all the time there stands beside them the mighty Counselor of the ages, inviting them to place their confidence in Him. Jesus, the great Burden Bearer, is saying, “Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.” Shall we turn from Him to uncertain human beings, who are as dependent upon God as we ourselves are?  

    The sharp focus is on only three persons—you and God and His only begotten Son. Oh, if I had only done this years ago I would have avoided many disappointments and discouragements. Never again am I going to allow my religion to become complicated or confusing. One-to-one contact with God through His Son Jesus, forming a bond and friendship that can never be broken is actually what religion is all about. It's just that simple. Just imagine, the very best friend you have is the One and only God who created this whole vast universe through His Son Jesus Christ. Wow! Can you bend your mind around that? "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." John 17:3

    They shall ask the Way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.







    The apostles belonged to THE WAY. The only begotten Son of the only living God says in 
    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.

    Acts 24:14 "But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they (they=anti-Christs) call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:" Another translation from the NET Bible says "But I confess this to you, that I worship the God of our ancestors according to the Way (which they [anti-christs 1 John 2:18, 2 John 1:7] call a sect), believing everything that is according to the law and that is written in the prophets." Click here to see a page that lists several translations of this verse.

    The 12 apostles of Christ belonged to THE WAY, which was Christ (John 14:6), the only begotten Son of the only living God! Those who oppose Christ, call this "WAY" to Heaven "heresy", a "sect".

      God is greater than Jesus in that he is greater in age and that he did not have a beginning at a point in time before the beginning of this world like His only Son that he gave us did.

      Most modern Adventists will say, we believe in a different trinity or a different flavor of 3 gods...and they are right, it is worse than the Catholic version...but here is a Signs of the Times pictorial showing they ARE the same flavor of error - because they worship more than 1 God, the Father (1 Cor 8:6). Picture below:

      In order to know what the doctrine of the Trinity is all about, we must have a correct definition of what it means.  See below 
      a comparison picture of the Catholic trinity and a SDA tritheistic modern belief version:

      If we accept the Trinity/SDA Triestic Doctrine - and if we claim that Ellen White supported and taught this doctrine - then we must THROW OUT the MANY statements made by her that: "the Saviour is our COMFORTER" (MR. vol. 8, p. 49) - PLEASE NOTE: that the term "COMFORTER" is uniquely reserved as a name for the HOLY SPIRIT (Christ HIMSELF referred to the Holy Spirit in this manner in John 14:16). Yet we have so many other SOP references stating clearly that the JESUS IS THE COMFORTER -- please note the following. "JESUS THE COMFORTER" (MR vol. 19, p. 298), ".this refers to the OMNIPRESENCE OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST CALLED THE COMFORTER" (MR vol. 14, p. 179), "CHRIST WAS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH" (Southern Watchman, October 25, 1898; par. 2), "HE IS THE COMFORTER" (RH Jan. 27, 1903; par. 13) - [if that statement isn't plain enough, consider the following:]"THE HOLY SPIRIT IS HIMSELF [Christ] divested of the personality of Humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit, as the Omnipresent" (MR vol. 14; p. 23, par. 3) - [can Ellen be any more precise than that - I mean, really, how can we ignore such a plain and unequivocal statement as that? But of course there are MORE! Which, we must throw out if we are to maintain our belief in the Trinity/Triestic doctrine. Are YOU willing to ignore such plain statements? -- Just because our "Leaders" INSIST on maintaining the Trinitarian position and doctrine?],"While Jesus ministers in the sanctuary above, HE is still by HIS SPIRIT the minister of the church on earth" (DA p. 166, par. 2), "Jesus is waiting to breathe upon all His disciples, and give them the inspiration of HIS SANCTIFYING SPIRIT and transfuse the vital influence from HIMSELF to His people.they must act with HIS SPIRIT, that it may be no more they that live, but CHRIST that liveth in them. Jesus is seeking to impress upon them the thought that in giving HIS HOLY SPIRIT He is giving to them the glory which the Father hath given Him, that He and His people may be one in God" (MR vol. 2, pp. 36,37), "Christ gives them the breath of HIS OWN SPIRIT, the life of His own life" (DA p. 827, par. 3) --- and MANY MORE. What are we to do with these statements? Can we REALLY conclude that Ellen is teaching the "Trinity" in these statements? Can we really construe them to mean something other than they plainly say - in order to support our acceptance of the Trinity/Triestic doctrine that is the central doctrine upon which ALL the doctrines of the Catholic church are based? Seriously, what should we do with these statements? Should we force them to mean something other than they clearly mean - or should we adjust our understanding (through prayerful study and humility) to conform to a understanding that is in harmony with both them and the Bible - "Now THE LORD IS THE SPIRIT, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Cor. 3:17)? We often quote the promise of the "SPIRIT" in Jn. 14:16,17 and we often use these texts to "Prove" that the Holy Spirit is a "Third", "Independent", "Co-Eternal", "Co-Existent" member of the Godhead (the TRINITARIAN/SDA 
      Tritheism view) -- but we don't often go on to include verse 18 where Jesus HIMSELF says that:"I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."Christ clearly states here that HE is the one who will "Come" to us and that HE is the One who will Not leave us "comfortless". This statement is in complete harmony with all of the above SOP statements referencing CHRIST as being the "COMFORTER" and the "Holy Spirit". To IGNORE the BIBLE and the SOP regarding such an important topic as this is nothing short of Inconceivable and certainly does not speak well of those of us who claim to "Love the TRUTH"!
    Try these two verses as well. I really like the two you sent...how can you "assume" and just by "faith" believe something totally contrary to the Bible? Did you watch those 2 or 3 videos I sent you lately? They are interesting, I think.

    Here's the other two verses I like:

    John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Who is God? 1 Cor 8:6 tells is very plainly: "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."

    John 6:44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.

    “To assert that the sayings of the Son and his apostles are the commandments of the Father, is as wide from the truth as the old trinitarian absurdity that Jesus Christ is the very and eternal God.” {James White, Aug 5, 1852, Review and Herald – Vol. 3 No. 7 P 52 Par 42}"''

    Here is me talking on video: 
    Baby Jesus Talking about the trinity of gods:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H3SAckxFVQ


    Trinitarians have rejected Jesus, and despised his saints. The filthy must remain filthy forever. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given. Mercy had stepped from the golden throne, no longer to intercede for the guilty sinner.   "All the men of that generation were not in the fullest sense of the term heathen idolaters. Many had a knowledge of God and his law; but they not only rejected the message of the faithful preacher of righteousness themselves, but used all their influence to prevent others from being obedient to God. To every one comes a day of trial and of trust. That generation had their day of opportunity and privilege while Noah was sounding the note of warning of the coming destruction; but they yielded their minds to the control of Satan rather than of God, and he deceived them, as he did our first parents. He set before them darkness and falsehood in the place of light and truth; and they accepted his sophistry and lies, because they were acceptable to them, and in harmony with their corrupt liveswhile truth that would have saved them was rejected as a delusion.” ST April 1, 1886, par. 3


    "We invite all to compare the testimonies of the Holy Spirit through Mrs. W., with the word of God. And in this we do not invite you to compare them with your creedThat is quite another thingThe TRINITARIAN may compare them with his creed, and because they do not agree with it, condemn them. The observer of Sunday, or the man who holds eternal torment an important truth, and the minister that sprinkles infants, may each condemn the testimonies' of Mrs. W. because they do not agree with their peculiar views. And a hundred more, each holding different views, may come to the same conclusion. But their genuineness can never be tested in this way." {James White RH June 13, 1871}

    Ellen G. White held her husband, James S. White up as an example for others to follow. She, of all people knew he vehemently rejected the trinity doctrine as unbiblical. She said James White was a type of Moses, that he was KEEN, NOBLE & TRUE and that he had been given GREAT light also, and was to speak and WRITE it out for OTHERS. She, as a true prophet of God would not ask others to follow her husband's leading if she herself did not believe the trinity was error. Remember? She stated that ALL of the pioneers came into harmony and were UNITED in the TRUTH! That included herself too! New truths do NOT contradict old truths or new light does not contradict OLD LIGHT, it only enhances the old light! When they came to something they all did not agree and understand, they would pray together, and God would show her the truth. They all worked together to hammer out the foundations of the early SDA church beliefs. "Whatever contradicts God's word, we may be sure proceeds from Satan." Patriarchs and Prophets, page 55, paragraph 2. "There is one straight chain of truth without one heretical sentence in that which I have written." — Ellen G. White, Letter 329A, 1905. (references: MS 135, 1903. (The Early Years, p. 145; James S. White, "type of Moses", Testimonies for the Church Volume 3, Page 85; "Moses was a type of Christ." {Patriarchs & Prophets, Chapter 43, p. 480-481; James White was "Keen, Noble & True" and was given "GREAT LIGHT also" and "he was to speak and WRITE it out for OTHERS", Selected Messages bk.1, p. 206-7 1904; As Moses was a type of Christ leading the ancient children of Israel, so James White, says Ellen White, was a type of Moses, leading the modern spiritual children of Israel into the Heavenly Canaan.

     "Like the Jews, many have closed their eyes lest they should see; but there is as great peril now, in closing the eyes to light, and in walking apart from Christ, feeling need of nothing, as there was when he was upon earth." {RH, Aug. 26, 1890}. "A clear conception of what God is, and what He requires us to be, will give us humble views of self." {RH June 2, 1896} "The same arguments are still urged against all who dare to present, in opposition to established errors, the plain and direct teachings of God's word." {GC p. 148} "I saw that the strength of the children of God is in their humility. When they are little in their own eyes, Jesus will be to them their strength and their righteousness, and God will prosper their labors." 3 Testimonies p. 307

    And there's LOTS of fig leaves needed to cover nakedness? "Naked" means to be WITHOUT GOD.

    "The fig leaves represent the arguments used to cover disobedience." Manuscript Releases Volume Twenty-one [Nos. 1501-1598], p. 193.4

    "I saw those who have been baptized as a door into the churches, would have to be baptized again as a door into the faith. Those who have not been baptized since 1844 will have to be before Jesus comes. And some I saw would not make progress till the duty was performed." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 3.8

    "You are getting the coming of the Lord too far off. I saw the latter rain was coming as [suddenly as] the midnight cry, and with ten times the power." Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 2.1


    I have a deep interest for every individual who is now making decisions to obey the word of the Lord. It is not the will or word of man that is to be received and believed, it is a “Thus saith the Lord.” The controversy is with the Lord. 21MR 193.1

    Satan will use every subtle argument to deceive men and women as he did in Eden to deceive Adam and Eve. A lie will be made to appear a very desirable fact. “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Satan said to Eve: [Genesis 3:2-5, quoted]. 21MR 193.2

    Adam and Eve both ate of the fruit and obtained a knowledge, which, had they obeyed God, they would never have had—an experience in disobedience and disloyalty to God—the knowledge that they were naked. The garments of innocence, the presence of light which surrounded them, a covering from God, had departed. They supplied the place of the heavenly garments by sewing together fig leaves for aprons. 21MR 193.3


    This is the covering that all who have transgressed the law of God have used since the days of Adam and Eve’s disobedience. They have sewn together fig leaves to cover their nakedness caused by transgression and sin. The fig leaves represent the arguments used to cover disobedience. When the Lord calls the attention of men and women to the truth, the making of fig leavesinto aprons will commence in order to hide the nakedness of the soul of every transgressor. 21MR 193.4

    The Lord Jesus Christ has prepared a covering, the robe of His own righteousness, that He will put on every repenting, believing soul who by faith will receive it. Said John, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Sin is the transgression of the law. Christ died to make it possible for every man to have his sins taken away. 21MR 193.5

    A fig-leaf apron will never cover our nakedness. Sin must be taken away, and the garment of Christ’s righteousness must cover the transgressor of God’s law. Then when the Lord looks upon the believing sinner, He sees, not the fig leaves covering him, but Christ’s own robe of righteousness, which is perfect obedience to the law of Jehovah. Man has hidden his nakedness, not 21MR 193.6


    Hope has been set before us, even the hope of Eternal Life. Nothing short of this Blessing for us will satisfy our Redeemer; but it is our part to lay hold upon this hope by faith in Him Who has promised. We may expect to suffer; for it is those who are partakers with him in his sufferings, who shall be partakers with him in his glory. He has purchased forgiveness and immortality for the sinful, perishing souls of men; but it is our part to receive these gifts by faithBelieving in Him, we have this hope as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast. We are to understand that we may confidently expect God's favor not only in this world, but in the heavenly world, since He paid such a price for our Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and to make whole again) ! 
     
         Faith in the atonement (to make one again) and intercession of Christ will keep us steadfast and immovable amid the temptations that press upon us in the church militant. Let us contemplate the glorious hope that is set before us, and by faith lay hold upon it.
     
         We must not permit Satan to cast his hellish shadow athwart our pathway, and accomplish his purpose of eclipsing the bright views of our future reward. Let us not look upon his shadow of darkness . We gain heaven not through our own merits, but through the merits (value, worthiness) of Jesus Christ. We cannot find Salvation in our own individual selves; we are to look unto Jesus, Who is the Author and Finisher of our faith, and as we look, we live! 

    Shall we not give up our sinsand let them go? Shall we not turn from them and hate them, and still remember that Christ regards His human agents as of great value? We cannot calculate the estimate placed upon the soul. Then take your eyes off yourself, and encourage hope and confidence in Christ. Let your hope not be centered in yourself, but in Him Who has entered within the vail (ref: Hebrews 10:16-20, 4:16, 6:17-20, 9:8-12).

        Our hope of Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing, restoration) is an anchor to the soul, both sure and steadfast, when it entereth into that which is within the vail. Anchored in Christ, the soul, like a ship amid the raging elements, tempest-tossed and driven, is immovable. It is not driven on the rocks or drawn into the whirlpool.
     
    "Wherefore didst thou doubt?" said Christ to the sinking Peter. The same question may be addressed to usWhy do we dishonor God with our shameful unbelief? The Lord has pledged Himself to give us strength to enable us to stand.
     
         As we search the Scriptures, we find ground for confidence, provision for sufficiency. It is our privilege to say boldly, yet humbly, The Lord is my helper, therefore I shall not be moved from my steadfastness. My life is hid with Christ in God. Because He lives, I shall live also

    Let us not think that Jesus is the Saviour of some one else, but that He is our personal friend. Entertain the precious thought that Jesus loves me. In this way the cloud of despondency and gloom will be rolled back from the soul, and we shall be enabled to make melody in our hearts unto God. We may triumph in the Lord, every day acknowledging the fact that our heavenly treasure, our everlasting portion, is sure to us through the atonement and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Believing this ourselves, we shall be able to aid others to see that their only help is in God, and encourage them to flee for refuge to Christ, laying hold on the hope set before us in the gospel!" - Review & Herald, June 9, 1896


    How much plainer can it get?

    The word of the Lord, spoken through His servants, is received by many with questionings and fears. And many will defer their obedience to the warning and reproofs given, waiting till every shadow of uncertainty is removed from their minds. The unbelief that demands perfect knowledge will never yield to the evidence that God is pleased to give.He requires of His people faith that rests upon the weight of evidence, not upon perfect knowledge. Those followers of Christ who accept the light that God sends them must obey the voice of God speaking to them when there are many other voices crying out against it. It requires discernment to distinguish the voice of God.

    Those who will not act when the Lord calls upon them, but who wait for more certain evidence and more favorable opportunities, will walk in darkness, for the light will be withdrawn. The evidence given one day, if rejected, may never be repeated.Testimonies for the Church Volume 3, p. 258.2

    History of the Trinity Doctrine Study No. 132

    The "Death by a Thousand Cuts"

    Nashikuzushi is a hard-to-pronounce Japanese word. It aptly describes the  actions of Japan in its march to dominate the world. Their constitution  forbids a large military. But, unknown to most of the world, Japan�s navy and army rank among the best. Nashikuzushi means that you do not suddenly announce any important change of policy. You pretend that the original policy is still intact, but subject it to so many constant minor changes and amendments that eventually it ceases to exist and has to be replaced by the policy you wanted all along. One way to translate nashikuzushi is "death by a thousand cuts" (Gregory Clark in The Australian, August 31, 1990). Those who have to compete with the Japanese economically, sooner or later face the fact that they are not competing on a level field.

    Likewise, in the field of religion, there are many who change doctrine by a thousand little cutting ways. Members of the early New Testament Church did not wake up one morning to find themselves keeping Sunday, Easter, and believing in the Trinity, when prior to this they had been keeping Sabbath, Passover, and believed in one God instead of three. Doctrinal departure occurs in many tiny stages, not often noticed.

    Through the courtesy of Elder John Kiesz of the Church of God (7th Day), here is a documented progression of doctrinal change among Seventh-day Adventists concerning the doctrine of the Trinity. This brief history illustrates doctrinal nashikuzushi.

    History of Trinity Doctrine Among Adventists

    William Miller, the founder of the Adventist movement and promoter of the 1844 end of the world teaching, was a Trinitarian: "I believe in one living and true God, and that there are three persons in the Godhead � as there is in man, the body, soul, and spirit. And if anyone will tell me how these exist, I will tell him how the three persons of the Triune God are connected" (quoted by James White in Sketches of the Christian Life and Public Labors of William Miller, Battle Creek, Michigan: Steam Press of the Seventh-day Adventist Publishing Association, 1875, p. 59).

    Adventist leader Joshua V. Himes wrote about early Adventists: "At first, they were generally Trinitarians; subsequently they have, almost unanimously, rejected the Trinitarian doctrine as unscriptural." Their accepted statements regarding the Godhead were, "That there is one living and true God, the Father Almighty, who is unoriginated, independent, and eternal, the Creator and Supporter of all worlds; and that this God is one spiritual intelligence, one infinite mind, ever the same, never varying. . . That Christ is the Son of God, the promised Messiah and Saviour of the world. . . ." (Joshua V. Himes, "Christian Connection", Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, edited by T. Newton Brown, Boston: Shattuck & Co., 1835, p. 362).

    Elder Joseph Bates, who introduced the Sabbath to the Adventists via his meeting with Seventh Day Baptists, became a staunch Anti-Trinitarian: "Respecting the Trinity, I concluded that it was impossible for me to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, was also the Almighty God, the Father, one and the same being. I said to my father, �If you can convince me [we] are one in this sense, that you are my father, and I your son, and also that I am your father, and you my son, then I can believe in the Trinity" . . . (Joseph Bates, The Autobiography of Elder Joseph Bates, Battle Creek, Michigan: Steam Press of the Seventh-day Adventist Publishing Association, 1868).

    Early Adventist leaders were all Anti-Trinitarians. James White referred to Christ as the "Angel" who led the Hebrews, and was a lesser being than the eternal Father (James White, Christ in the Old Testament, Oakland, California: Pacific Press Publishing Association, 1877, p. 11). J.M. Stephenson wrote that "The idea of Father and Son supposes priority of the existence of the other. To say that the Son is as old as his father, is a palpable contradiction of terms. It is a natural impossibility for the Father to be as young as the Son, or the Son to be as old as the Father" (J.M. Stephenson, "The Atonement," Review and Herald, VI, November 14, 1854, p. 128). These Anti-Trinitarian views are termed "Arianism." Arians believe that the Son is not co-eternal or co-equal with the Father, as stated by the Nicene Creed, but the Messiah was God�s first creation, and hence less than the Father. Arians believe that Jesus was created by the Father at the very beginning of creation, before anything else was created, even before the worlds began.

    D.W. Hull said, "The doctrine which we propose to examine [trinitarianism], was established by the Council of Nice, A.D. 325, and ever since that period, persons not believing this peculiar tenet, have been denounced by popes and priests, as dangerous heretics. It was for disbelief in this doctrine, that the Arians were anathematized in A.D. 513. As we can trace this doctrine no farther back than the origin of the �Man of Sin� and as we find this dogma at that time established rather by force, than otherwise, we claim the right to investigate the matter, and ascertain the bearing of Scripture on this subject" (D.W. Hull, "Bible Doctrine of Divinity," Review and Herald, November 10, 1859, p. 193).

    Uriah Smith, perhaps the most famous Adventist writer of the 19th Century, said, "But respecting this Spirit, the Bible uses expressions which cannot be harmonized with the idea that it is a person like the Father and the Son. Rather it is shown to be a divine influence from them both, the medium which represents their presence and by which they have knowledge and power through all the universe, when not personally present" (Uriah Smith, "In the Question Chair," Review and Herald, LXVII, October 28, 1890, p. 664). In commenting on Revelation 3:14-22, Smith wrote that he believed that the Messiah was "the first created being" by God the Father (Uriah Smith, Thoughts Critical and Practical on the Book of Revelation, Battle Creek, Michigan: Steam Press of the Seventh-day Adventist Publishing Association, 1865, p. 59).

    Adventist historian J.N. Loughborough wrote, "What serious objection is there to the doctrine of the Trinity? There are many objections which we might urge, but on account of our limited space we shall reduce them to the three following: 1. It is contrary to common sense. 2. It is contrary to Scripture. 3. Its origin is Pagan and fabulous" (J.N. Loughborough, "Questions for Bro. Loughborough,"Review and Herald, XVIII, November 5, 1861, p. 184).

    J.H. Waggoner wrote, "Surely, we say right, that the doctrine of the Trinity degrades the Atonement, by bringing the sacrifice, the blood of our purchase, down to the standard of Socinianism [denial of the divinity of Jesus]. . . .the Word was God, and also the Word was with God. Now it needs no proof�indeed it is self-evident that the Word as God, was not the God whom he was with. And as there is but �one God,� the term must be used in reference to the Word in a subordinate sense, which is explained by Paul�s calling the same pre-existent person the Son of God" (J.H. Waggoner,The Atonement, Oakland, California: Pacific Press, 1884, pp. 174, 153).

    Socinianism, another form of Anti-Trinitarianism, says that Jesus did not pre-exist before His human birth, and had no part in the creation of man. Adventist researcher Jonathan Ross says that the Church of God, 7th Day (Meridian, Idaho group) is Socinian, as well as the House of Yahweh in Odessa, Texas, and the Church of God, Abrahamic Faith (Oregon, Illinois).

    The Seventh-day Adventist 1889 Yearbook, under the article, "The Godhead," states, "That there is one God, a personal, spiritual Being, the Creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and eternal, infinite in wisdom, holiness, justice, goodness, truth, and mercy; unchangeable, and everywhere present by His representative, the Holy Spirit. That there is one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the eternal Father, the One by whom He created all things, and by whom they do exist."

    According to John Kiesz (personal interview, April 1991), Adventist leader James White ridiculed the idea of the Trinity, but his wife, Ellen G. White, was a closet Trinitarian. After the 1880�s, the Seventh-day Adventists underwent a doctrinal change regarding the teaching of the Trinity. The 1931 Yearbook says something quite different from statements of the pioneers, who were by this time deceased: "That the Godhead, or Trinity, consists of the Eternal Father, a personal, spiritual Being, omnipotent, omniscient, infinite in wisdom and love; The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Eternal Father, through whom all things were created and through whom the salvation of the redeemed hosts will be accomplished; The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, the great regenerating power in the work of redemption. That Jesus Christ is very God, being of the same nature and essence as the Eternal Father." And in 1980, the second point of the "Fundamental Beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists" states, "2. THE TRINITY�There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons. God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, yet known through His self-revelation. He is forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation."

    From William Miller to Uriah Smith to the late 20th Century, Adventist teaching regarding the Trinity has gone a full circle. So important is the Trinity doctrine to most professing Christians, that the famous modern theologian, Dr. Walter R. Martin, recognizes Seventh-day Adventists as Christians and not an un-Christian cult, because they now believe in the Trinity (The Kingdom of the Cults, Minneapolis: Bethany House Publishers, 1982, p. 370).

    Church of God, Seventh Day: Anti-Trinitarian

    Around 1900, the Oklahoma Conference of the Church of God (7th Day) stated, "To us there is but one God, the Father, who created us. He is a person and has body and parts, and created man in His own image. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and mediator between God and man. Because the son is declared to be God; not the invisible, Almighty and self-existent God, but the created and dependent God, who has been seen many times."

    The Bible Students Assistant, published by the Church of God Publishing House, 1911, says, "Titles of the Father: The eternal God, Whose name alone is Jehovah, The Ancient of Days, The only true God, the King eternal, immortal, invisible, God the Father, The God of our Lord Jesus Christ. Titles of the Son: The only begotten of the Father, The Son of the living God. Jesus Christ�s person was the express image or likeness of God�s person. He was made in the likeness of men and was a man."

    A 1920�s issue of The Bible Advocate states, "The creed of the Church of God being the commandments of God and the testimonies of Jesus Christ, and Anti-Arianism being Papalism is directly against the testimonies of Jesus on this question; therefore ministerial license or credentials will not be issued to any person by the Church of God that teaches the doctrines of Constantine and the Papacy, on the subject of the Godhead."

    Generally, the Church of God, Seventh Day has been Anti-Trinitarian in the Arian sense. Recently, there has been considerable discussion on this topic among Church of God ministers. John Kieszappears to be a leader of the effort to maintain Anti-Trinitarianism.

    Worldwide Church of God and Trinity Teaching

    The Worldwide Church of God, in its 1930�s "Fundamentals of Belief," Article 1, states, "We believe in ONE GOD, eternally existing in the heavens, who is a Spirit, a personal Being of supreme intelligence, knowledge, love, justice, power, and authority, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that in them is, and the source of life."

    During most of its history, the Worldwide Church of God was Anti-Trinitarian, but not Arian. They believed that the Father and Son are eternal, and equal in nature but not in rank. God is not a Trinity, but a Family. God the Father is the leader of Jesus Christ, just as the husband is the leader of the wife. Jesus is the Almighty God of the Old Testament. The Holy Spirit is not a person. Some have derided this teaching as "Dualism," but this in an inaccurate assessment. Theologians and "Higher Critics" have blindly accepted the heretical and false doctrine adapted from pagans who crept into the church, that the Holy Spirit is a third person. "This limits God to �Three Persons.� This denies that Christ, through His Holy Spirit, actually comes now into the converted Christian and does His saving work on the inside ��Christ in you the Hope of Glory� (Colossians 1:27) . . . That heresy denies the true born-again experience!" (Herbert W. Armstrong, "Just What Do You Mean � Born Again?", pp. 17,19). At baptism and the laying on of hands, true believers are begotten of God�s Holy Spirit. After a life of overcoming, at the resurrection at Messiah�s return, they are "born again" when they become spirit, John 3:1-8.

    George L. Johnson wrote the definitive Worldwide Church of God booklet on the Trinity, "Is God a TRINITY?" (Pasadena, California: Ambassador College Press, 1973). Johnson shows how the Trinity is a central doctrine of most Protestant and Catholic churches. Yet they are unable to explain this non-Biblical teaching. Lindsell and Woodbridge, in A Handbook of Christian Truth, page 51, state, "The mind of man cannot fully understand the mystery of the Trinity. He who would try to understand the mystery fully will lose his mind. But he who would deny the Trinity will lose his soul." Athanasius, a deacon of the (apostate) church in Alexandria, Egypt, who was steeped in the philosophy of Plato, borrowed the idea of the Trinity from the pagans and formulated the statement adopted in the Nicean Creed of 325 A.D., that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are co-equal, and co-eternal, one God in three persons. At the Council of Nicea, Athanasius was confronted by Arius, a priest of Alexandria, who held that Christ was not a God, but a created being. Emperor Constantine cared nothing for the theological debate. He only wanted a united kingdom. Arius� teaching was rightly rejected, and the views of Athanasius prevailed, not because of their weight but because there was no other viable position. And so, Johnson concludes, the official dogma accepted at Nicea has been vociferously defended over the centuries by the state Catholic church, and later by her Protestant daughters. Trinitarian believers persecuted Arians, and more were killed over the doctrine of the Trinity than by all the pagan emperors of Rome. Yet both Trinitarians and Arians were wrong Biblically (see our article on the Trinity, "The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit," contained in our book, Bible Studies).

    About 1992-93, the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) changed its teaching relative to the doctrine of the Trinity. In spite of denials, the new teaching was in fact trinitarian. Because of the thousand little "cuts," or doctrinal changes over the past 15-20 years, most of the membership did not stir themselves from slumber when this major change occurred.

    Once again, in an attempt to soft-pedal former spiritual understanding, the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) stated that the doctrine of the Trinity did not come from paganism. In the August 25, 1992Worldwide News article, Joseph Tkach said, "the doctrine of the Trinity did not originate in paganism, as we have traditionally taught." The new WCG booklet, God Is..., said that "the Holy Spirit is also God," and, "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are God," and "The Bible does reveal three entities within one Godhead � the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (page 41)." Finally, they concluded that "the Trinity doctrine has been accepted as a mystery � part of the mystery of godliness." On page 49, the booklet says that "upon conversion, the Christian is �born again� into the kingdom of God as one of the �children of God� . . . . It is biblically inaccurate, however, to say that God is a family." Further WCG literature said that God is not a person, nor is Christ; that God and Christ don�t have a body; that Christians are only adopted sons who will never become God beings; that God is not reproducing Himself, etc.

    The WCG had now accepted three major false Protestant doctrines: Trinity, born again now (not at the resurrection), and God is not a family.

    Just where did the doctrine of the Trinity come from? Alexander Hislop, in his famous book, The Two Babylons, clearly traces the trinity doctrine back to ancient Babylon. In chapter two, "Objects of Worship," after 90 pages of historical evidence, Hislop concludes:

    Will any one after this say that the Roman Catholic Church must still be called Christian, because it holds the doctrine of the Trinity? So did the Pagan Babylonians, so did the Egyptians, so do the Hindoos at this hour, in the very same sense in which Rome [the Catholic Church] does (page 90).

    The Worldwide Church answer to Hislop is to malign his scholarship. Yet other noted scholars, such as Frazer, confirm Hislop�s accuracy. You are encouraged to read Hislop�s The Two Babylons, available from Giving & Sharing.

    Dr. Walter R. Martin and the Worldwide Church of God

    The famous authority on cults, the late Dr. Walter R. Martin (not to be confused with Dr. Ernest Martin, a former Worldwide Church of God minister who led many to leave that organization in the 1970�s with his "Foundation for Biblical Research" and attacks on the doctrines of the WCG), had some interesting things to say about the Worldwide Church of God. Indeed, he seemed almost prophetic.

    After attacking the WCG�s Anglo-Israel beliefs, Martin noted that almost all other Identity (Anglo-Israel) groups are "orthodox" relative to the nature of God and the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. In Martin�s view, the Trinity doctrine is a major test of a religious cult. Seventh-day Adventists believe in the Trinity, so he does not term them a cult. The Worldwide Church of God had been Anti-Trinitarian, so Martin labeled them a non-Christian cult. "The Worldwide Church of God," Martin said, "is outside the historic Christian Church because it denies foundational Christian truth." By this, Martin means Trinity and "born again" doctrine (Kingdom of the Cults, p. 297). Martin was so incensed at the WCG�s radical Anti-Trinitarianism that he said their "depersonalization of the Holy Spirit strikes at the very heart of the Christian Gospel, for it is through the agency of the third person of the Trinity that God regenerates men to eternal life . . . . By denying the personality of the Spirit, i.e., that the Spirit is. . .one of the persons of the Holy Trinity, Armstrong invalidates the only means whereby a man can be saved" (Ibid., p. 314).

    Martin ridiculed Armstrong�s teaching against the "born again" doctrine as "one of the strangest doctrines in the area of cultism" (p. 316). Martin also showed that there is, according to the Catholic/Protestant "Orthodox" position, a close link between the Trinity and the doctrine of Spiritual Regeneration, i.e., "born again" (pp. 316, 317). With the 1991 Worldwide Church of God doctrinal change relative to "born again," one of the two positions which Martin uses to brand the WCG as a non-Christian cult was removed. Given the fact that the WCG had for the last several years been attempting to make itself more presentable and "respectable" to the world, could it be that Martin unknowingly predicted the "born again" doctrinal change, and the Trinity change as well? When the Worldwide Church God fully accepted the Trinity doctrine, they escaped from being labeled a cult by the world�s most renowned authority on cults, Dr. Walter Martin.

    Is "Mainstream" Christianity a Cult?

    An article by Pastor Hatch in Brief Bible Studies for July-September, 1984, presented some interesting views on the trinity and cults. Here are excerpts from this article:

    "What is a cult? In order to understand the nature of a cult, we must recognize first that there are two great principles of revealed truth: The unity of God, and the mortality of man.

    "Moses, Jesus, and Paul unite in their testimony that "God is One." There is one God who is one in person and being (Deut. 6:4; Mk. 11:29; Gal. 3:20; I Cor. 8:6, Eph. 4:6). And Genesis 2:7 and 3:19 tell us clearly that man is a material and mortal being. "The first man is of the earth," Paul says. He is "corruptible" and "mortal" (I Cor. 15:47, 53-54).

    "Yet traditional Christianity speaks of �trinitarian monotheism� and would have us believe that God is a three-in-one being . . . . So also, we are told that man is �dichotomous.� That is, he is two parts. One part, his body, is mortal and returns to dust. But the other part, his �soul,� is immaterial, and lives on after death.

    "But this is to attribute to man a form of natural immortality. It violates the second great principle of revealed truth, the mortality of man, and has no Scriptural basis except the words of the serpent, �ye shall not surely die� (Gen. 3:4). . . .  Today�s �historic� or �mainstream� religion came from the days of Constantine. For political reasons, and the unity of the empire, this fourth century Roman ruler metamorphosed Christianity. He took it over, and changed all its standards.

    "Constantine and his successors could not have accomplished this feat, of course, had it not been for the intrusion of false doctrine into the church. The so-called �Apologists� arose, men whose goal was to blend Christianity and Greek philosophy. They said that although God was one, He was also three persons. They taught also that �soul� and �body� were separate things, the �soul� being immortal. Thus Christianity became virtually a Christianized Greek philosophy.

    ". . . . In the sixth century, the emperor Justinian made it a crime to deny the doctrine of the trinity, and also the doctrine of infant baptism. To deny either one was a capital offense � a crime punishable by death!

    "Thus was established the cult of Constantine! It retained the name �Christian,� but it was a far cry from the clear monotheism of the New Testament: One God, and Jesus the Messiah, the virgin-born Son of God. (Compare I Corinthians 8:6 where Paul says, �But to us [Christians] there is but one God, the Father.� . . . .

    "A cult, then, is any movement or system of teaching that denies the unity of God�s nature and the mortality of man�s nature. God is One and man is mortal. These are the two basic principles of Biblical revelation. They transcend all other truth, and all other truth is related to them in some way. For example, �the man Christ Jesus� is, as Paul says, the �one mediator between God and men� (I Tim. 2:5).

    "I have observed that much of today�s anti-cult material is produced by people who believe that God is three and man is dichotomous (or trichotomous). It never seems to occur to such people thatthey may be a cult�the oldest and biggest cult of all, that cult whose influence penetrates the farthest reaches of Christendom."

    Trinity the Foundation of Catholic Teaching

    Few of us who are anti-Trinitarian realize just how central the belief in the Trinity is to Catholic and Protestant teaching. Catholic priest Francis X. Weiser, in his book Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs (New York, Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1958), page 254, states: "The greatest dogma of the Christian faith is the mystery of the Holy Trinity." The Trinity is the central teaching of the great false church. Weiser notes that the Feast of the Holy Trinity, one of the annual man made festivals of the Catholic Church, falls on the Sunday after Pentecost. The Trinity doctrine is stated in the New International Encyclopedia, vol. 22, page 476: "We worship one God in Trinity, but there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. The glory equal, the majesty co-eternal." Tertullian coined the word "Trinity" in 180 A.D.

    The Trinity doctrine has a profound effect on belief and practice in the Church. The Council of Nicea insisted that the Trinitarian formula ("in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost") be used in baptism. Even earlier, as the Encyclopedia Britannica (11th Edition, Volume 3, pages 365-366) reports, "The baptismal formula was changed by the Catholic Church from the name of Jesus Christ, to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, in the second century." Also, "Everything in the oldest sources states that baptism took place in the Name of Jesus Christ." (Ibid., page 82). The Hastings Encyclopedia of Religion, Volume 2, pages 377-389, states "The Christian baptism was administered using the Name of Jesus. The Trinitarian formula of any sort was not suggested in the early Church history. Baptism was always in the Name of the Lord Jesus, until the time of Justin Martyr, when the Trinity formula was used."

    How did the early church interpret the Messiah�s command in Matthew 28:19? It is easy to see in Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48, 19:5 that they believed that Matthew 28:19 is not a baptismal formula or a supporting scripture for the Trinity. The early church always baptized in the name of Jesus. They understood, as we do, that this verse really means "immersing them into the name" (as correctly translated by the J. B. Rotherham Emphasized Bible), that is, baptism is a sign that we have entered into the Family of God, that we are now have God�s name, Revelation 3:12, 14:1.

    The doctrine of the nature of God directly affects our understanding of baptism, the relationship we have with God, and the salvation of man. K.J. Stavrinides, Worldwide Church of God scholar, has attempted to downplay the importance of the theological implications of the Trinity doctrine (article, "The Trinity" in January-February 1991 Reviews You Can Use, a publication for the WCG ministry). He said we should leave such "deep" theological and philosophical questions to the "experts." However, Protestant watchers of doctrinal change in the WCG will continue to hold the WCG�s feet to the fire. The WCG may waffle on peripheral issues relating to the Trinity, and attempt to downgrade its importance. But unless they accept the orthodox heresy that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, orthodox Catholic and Protestant believers will continue to label them a non-Christian cult. And if the WCG does openly change its teaching (which is possible), they will have "gone off the deep end" in the mind of many of their followers.

    Conclusion

    Each time we hear of clever doctrinal changes, or rumors of doctrinal change, by Sabbath-keeping organizations, we return once more to the scriptures. The "faith once delivered" becomes more firm and sure in our minds. We are forced to study the issue more thoroughly and allow God�s Word to enlighten us.

    I have observed that "New Truth" doesn�t come to those who have long ago thrown out what truth they had. It is sad that the masses are indeed like "dumb sheep" in that they seemingly accept whatever comes from the headquarters of their "true church." Now I can see more clearly how the early church became corrupted.

    There is a natural human inclination to be accepted by the majority. After all, who wants to be labeled as a weird cult? Who wants to be persecuted and maligned? But, the Bible tells us to seek God�s ways and not be concerned about what others think of us. Let them call us a cult since we utterly reject the Trinity doctrine.

    In the past, many have died rather than accept the baptized pagan doctrine of the Trinity. Today, some would like to convince us that it is merely a philosophical question for the learned theologians. Is there nothing sacred anymore? Is there no doctrine worth holding steadfast to, because the Bible simply says so?

    Men concerned with public image, rather than what the Bible says, have used Nashikuzushi, death by a thousand cuts, tactics to push their agenda. Now they are bold enough to say that every doctrinal teaching of the church is on the table for examination and picking and choosing by the leadership. As one man told me, since the ministers told him all the doctrines were now on the table, he put the church organization on the table, and he has found it severely lacking. Any church organization that desires acceptance by the world�s false religions more than acceptance by the God of the Bible has long ago gone astray.

    My friends, . . . [it is] urgently necessary to write at once and appeal to you to join the struggle in defence of the faith, the faith which God entrusted to His people once and for all. It is in danger from certain persons who have wormed their way in, . . . . They are enemies of [true] religion; they pervert the free favour of our God into licentiousness, disowning Jesus Christ, our only Master and Lord. Jude 3-4New English Bible.

    May the Eternal deliver us from the "death of a thousand cuts."W


    You said: "I have called SDA headquarters and am forming a campaign to remove the word Trinity from the fundamental beliefs and use Ellen Whites term "the Godhead" in its place and exclude the 1 John 5 texts and give a better Biblical explanation of the Godhead."

    Removing the word "trinity" from the fundamental beliefs won't make the false concept of the trinity disappear. That won't suddenly make people believe in the only true God according to Jesus' testimony (John 17:3). Removing the word "trinity" and replacing it with "Godhead" won't make people believe that the counsel of peace is between only the Father and the Son (Zech. 6:13). He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son (2 John 1:9). "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed." (2 John 1:10)

    Like James White printed, RH-Nov. 5, 1861:


    J.N. LOUGHBOROUGH

    "Questions for Bro. Loughborough. Bro. White: The following questions I would like to have you give, or send, to Bro. Loughborough for explanation. W. W. Giles, Toledo, Ohio Question 1. What serious objections is there to the doctrine of the Trinity? ANSWER. There are many objections which we might urge, but on account of our limited space we shall reduce them to the three following: 1. It is contrary to common sense. 2. It is contrary to scripture. 3. Its origin is pagan and fabulous (a fable)... Instead of pointing us to scripture for proof of the Trinity, we are pointed to the trident of the Persians...This doctrine of the Trinity was brought into the church about the same time with image worship, and keeping the day of the sun, and is but Persian doctrine remodeled. It occupied about three hundred years from its introduction to bring the doctrine to what it is now. It was commenced about 325 A.D., and was not completed till 681. See Milman's Gibbon's Rome, vol. iv, p. 422. It was adopted in Spain in 589, in England in 596, in Africa in 534.-Gib. vol. iv, pp. 114, 345; Milner, vol. i, p. 519." RH-Nov. 5, 1861. | back |

     there are many things about the "trinity concept" that are wrong, but the main two that always come to my mind, is that we are denying Jesus by not believing that as stated in John 3:16 that he was SENT by God = GOD had to have a Son TO GIVE, prior to Bethlehem, prior to the creation of this world. This is what the "trinity" of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit - 3 god philosophical intellectual concept of God denies...it denies this because Jesus was begotten, at some point in time DID have a origin or beginning, God the Father did not. HE was always present - without beginning or origin. So the Father IS greater in that He is OLDER in AGE than the Son. Jesus says, my Father is greater - SDA says they are "equal" from eternity - Christ tells us that He was SETUP and Given authority - modern adventism says that all three gods are equal and just role playing.  The Bible always talks about TWO beings, BOTH.

    GOD, the Father of Christ, is IMMORTAL, meaning He cannot die (everything would fall apart if He died) and GOD is a Spirit (John 4:24) who is INIVISIBLE to us after Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden: "Now unto the King eternal, immortalinvisiblethe only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen." 1 Timothy 1:17. "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." 1 Corinthians 8:6 

    We deny our Saviour by denying that he was born first in Heaven, prior to Bethlehem, is the firstborn of Heaven, by believing in the 3 god concept.  We also deny Him by this doctrine because this doctrine denies that Christ completely DIED for us. The 3 god concept says that a part of Christ stayed alive - and did not die. The Bible says in over 31 places that God the Father raised Him from the dead. Dead is dead and I choose to believe the Bible. If we deny that Christ died for us by believing in the 3 god doctrine, how can we be saved?

    Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven.
      
    Luke 12:9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

    God IS the Father of Christ

    Christ was Twice Born, once in Heaven of the Spirit and Once on Earth of the Flesh. Just as we must be twice born, only in opposites for us. We are Born of the flesh first, then we must be born of the Spirit or born again of GOD before we can enter the kingdom of Heaven.

    Take some time to seek the truth, for the traditions of men cannot save your soul.

    So many people profess that they are living for Christ and yet have never been "Born again".
    Naturally speaking, a person cannot live until they are first born, and so it is spiritually. We
    cannot Live spiritually unless we are born again in the Spirit, or born of GOD's Spirit. GOD living inside us (our minds) thru His SON JESUS living inside us and us living inside Jesus. (John 3:5)
    "At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." John 14:20 

    John 3:5 (KJV) "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."
    "As Christ was twice born, once in eternity, the only begotten of the Father, and again here in the flesh, thus uniting the divine with the human in that second birth, so we, who have been born once already in the flesh, are to have the second birth, being born again of the Spirit, in order that our experience may be the same, the human and the divine being joined in a life union." W.W. PRESCOTT Review and Herald, April 14, 1896 p. 232.

    “He was born of the Holy Ghost. In other words, Jesus Christ was born again. He came from heaven, God’s first-born, to the earth, and wasAt Jones born again. But all in Christ’s work goes by opposites for us:  He, the sinless one, was made to be sin in order that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.  He, the living One, the Prince and Author of life, died that we might live. He whose goings forth have been from the days of eternity, the first-born of God, was born again in order that we might be born again” (A. T. Jones,Christian Perfection, paragraph 53). (This is also found in Lessons on Faith, p. 154.)

    “He who was born in the form of God took the form of man” (A. T. Jones, The General Conference Bulletin, 1895, p. 449).

    "If Jesus Christ had never been born again, could you and I have ever been born again? No. But he was born again, from the world of righteousness into the world of sin; that we might be born again, from the world of sin into the world of righteousness. He was born again, and was made partaker of the human nature, that we might be born again, and so made partakers of the divine nature. He was born again, unto earth, unto sin, and unto man, that we might be born again unto heaven, unto righteousness, and unto God." Review and Herald, Aug. 1, 1899 (Lessons on Faith p. 154.)

    His Only Begotten Son Jesus (the ONLY BEING who could DIE to save us from our sins): "begotten" from Strong's Concordance  #3439 from monos andgenos means: monogenes  mon-og-en-ace':  only-born, i.e. sole -- only (begotten, child). 3439 monogenḗs (from 3411 /misthōtós, "one-and-only" and 1085 /génos, "offspring, stock") – properly, one-and-only; "one of a kind" – literally, "one (monos) of a class, genos" (the only of its kind). Christ, the only begotten Son of God had a beginning (brought forth from God's bosom, begotten, child=offspring, firstborn child, Son of God) in eternity, not in time (this world goes round by time, not eternity). God is NOT limited by TIME. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the 365 days a year TIME CYCLE, since this world was created by the Son of GOD. JESUS WAS First-BORN "IN ETERNITY" TO HIS FATHER AND GOD prior to this world and before anything at all was created, before the angels were created. God had a Son, and God created everything THROUGH His only begotten Son. A firstborn Son, born in eternity a time (to us) so far in the past that human minds cannot grasp it. Remember? God created the days, seasons and TIME? Eccl 3:2 "A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest."  "Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment," Hebrews 9:27


    In eternity, in heaven, before anything was created and before time began (this world) God had a one and only begotten Son who He named Jesus. This Son of God was born/begotten from His Father's bosom (John 1:18). Jesus tells us in Proverbs 8:30 "Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;". "When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water." Proverbs 8:24. "Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:" Proverbs 8:25. Jesus is known as the "firstborn" of all creatures in Colossians 1:15 "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:".

    Jesus looks, thinks and acts just like His Father and His God, like Father, like Son! ("The son is like its father"), a chip off the old block! :) son will have traits similar to his father upon reaching adulthood. This Biblical concept of Jesus being the firstborn of all creatures is important to understand, because to understand it, means our salvation and even shows us what church we should belong to. "One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all."  Ephesians 4:6.


    “The rainbow in the clouds is but a symbol of the rainbow which has encircled the throne from eternity. Back in the ages, which finite mind cannot fathom, the Father and Son were alone in the universe. Christ was the first begotten of the Father, and to Him Jehovah made known the divine plan of Creation” (Stephen Haskell, Story of the Seer of Patmos, pp. 93, 94).

    “Christ was the firstborn in heaven; He was likewise the firstborn of God upon earth, and heir to the Father’s throne. Christ, the firstborn, though the Son of God, was clothed in humanity, and was made perfect through suffering” (Stephen Haskell, Story of the Seer of Patmos p. 98).

    “The S. D. Adventists hold the divinity of Christ so nearly with the Trinitarians that we apprehend no trial here” (James White, The Review & Herald, October 12, 1876). He is saying the divinity of Christ is no less than His Father's divinity - trinitarians hold that Christ is the very god and completely divine - so we  believe Christ is completely divine too, just not that Christ is role playing - Christ is literally the one and only begotten of his Father and God, prior to Bethlehem. Christ is just as divine as His Father.

    A review of the belief in the begotten Son of God from apostolic days to the present with special focus on the slow change that evolved within the Seventh-day Adventist church.


    "If Jesus Christ had never been born again, could you and I have ever been born again? No. But he was born again, from the world of righteousness into the world of sin; that we might be born again, from the world of sin into the world of righteousness. He was born again, and was made partaker of the human nature, that we might be born again, and so made partakers of the divine nature. He was born again, unto earth, unto sin, and unto man, that we might be born again unto heaven, unto righteousness, and unto God." Review and Herald, Aug. 1, 1899 (Lessons on Faith p. 154.)

    “But if I am asked what I think of Jesus Christ, my reply is, I believe all that the Scriptures say of him. If the testimony represents him as being in glory with the Father before the world was, I believe it. If it is said that he was in the beginning with God, that he was God, that all things were made by him and for him, and that without him was not anything made that was made, I believe it. If the Scriptures say he is the Son of God, I believe it. If it is declared that the Father sent his Son into the world, I believe he had a Son to send. … Children inherit the name of their father. The Son of God “hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than” the angels” (R. F. Cottrell, The Review & Herald, June 1 1869, emphasis in the original).

    “As to when He was begotten, it is not for us to inquire, nor could our minds grasp it if we were told. The prophet Micah tells us all that we canEJ Waggoner know about it in these words, “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2, margin.  There was a time when Christ proceeded forth and came from God, from the bosom of the Father (John 8:42; 1:18), but that time was so far back in the days of eternity that to finite comprehension it is practically without beginning” (E. J. Waggoner—Christ and His Righteousness, pp. 21, 22).

    “In arguing the perfect equality of the Father and the Son, and the fact that Christ is in very nature God, we do not design to be understood as teaching that the Father was not before the Son. It should not be necessary to guard this point, lest some should think that the Son existed as soon as the Father; yet some go to that extreme, which adds nothing to the dignity of Christ, but rather detracts from the honor due him, since many throw the whole thing away rather than accept a theory so obviously out of harmony with the language of Scripture, that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. He was begotten, not created. He is of the substance of the Father, so that in his very nature he is God; and since this is so “it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.” Col. 1:19 … While both are of the same nature, the Father is first in point of time. He is also greater in that he had no beginning, while Christ’s personality had a beginning” (E. J. Waggoner, The Signs of the Times, April 8, 1889).

    “The Father was greater than the Son in that he was first. The Son was equal with the Father in that he had received all things from the Father” (James White, The Review & Herald, January 4, 1881).

    “And as to the Son of God, he would be excluded also, for he had God for his Father, and did, some point at the eternity of the past, have beginning of days. So that if we use Paul’s language in an absolute sense, it would be impossible to find but one being in theuniverse, and that is God the Father, who is without father, or mother, or descent, or beginning of days, or end of life” (J. N. Andrews,The Review & Herald, September 7, 1869).

    “The angels, therefore, are created beings, necessarily of a lower order than their Creator. Christ is the only being begotten of the Father” (James Edson White [Son of Ellen White], Past Present and Future, p. 52).

    “The dedication of the first-born had its origin in the earliest times. God had promised to give the First-born of heaven toEllen White save the sinner.” {The Desire of Ages, p. 51}

    “Angels of God looked with amazement upon Christ, who took upon Himself the form of man and humbly united His divinity with humanity in order that He might minister to fallen man. It is a marvel among the heavenly angels. God has told us that He did do it, and we are to accept the Word of God just as it reads. And although we may try to reason in regard to our Creator, how long He has had existence, where evil first entered into our world, and all these things, we may reason about them until we fall down faint and exhausted with the research when there is yet an infinity beyond.” {E. G. White, S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7, p. 919} 1888

    “The Lord Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, existed from eternity, a distinct person, yet one with the Father. He was the surpassing glory of heaven. He was the commander of the heavenly intelligences, and the adoring homage of the angels was received by him as his right. This was no robbery of God. “The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way,” he declares, “before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth; while as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth.”” {E. G. White, Review and Herald, April 5, 1906 par. 7}

    “In reviewing our past history, having traveled over every step of advance to our present standing, I can say, Praise God! As I see what the Lord has wrought, I am filled with astonishment, and with confidence in Christ as leader. We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history” (Ellen White Life Sketches, p. 196).

    “The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath, of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure” (Ellen White Special Testimonies, Series B, no. 2, p. 54).





    What Our Pioneer's Believed About The Trinity 

    JAMES WHITE 

    "The way spiritualizers this way have disposed of or denied the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ is first using the old unscriptural Trinitarian creed" The Day Star, Jan. 24, 1846.  

      

    J.H. WAGGONER 

    "The great mistake of Trinitarians, in arguing this subject, seems to be this: They make no distinction between a denial of a Trinity and a denial of the divinity of Christ. They see only the two extremes, between which the truth lies; and take every expression referring to the pre-existence of Christ as evidence of a Trinity. The Scriptures abundantly teach the pre-existence of Christ and his divinity; but they are entirely silent in regard to a Trinity." The Atonement, 1872 ed, chapter 4, "Doctrine Of A Trinity Subversive Of The Atonement" p. 165.  

     

    A.J. DENNIS 

    "What a contradiction of terms is found in the language of a Trinitarian creed: 'In unity of this Godhead are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.' There are many things that are mysterious, written in the word of God, but we may safely presume the Lord never calls upon us to believe impossibilities. But creeds often do." Signs of the Times, May 22, 1879.  

     

    R.F. COTTRELL 

    "My reasons for not adopting and defending it, are 1. Its name is unscriptural the Trinity, or the triune God, is unknown to the Bible; and I have entertained the idea that doctrines which require words coined in the human mind to express them, are coined doctrines. 2. I have never felt called upon to adopt and explain that which is contrary to all the sense and reason that God has given me. All my attempts at an explanation of such a subject would make it no clearer to my friends..." Review and Herald, June 1, 1869.  

     

    J.N. LOUGHBOROUGH 

    "The word Trinity nowhere occurs in the Scriptures. The principal text supposed to teach it is 1 John 5:7, which is an interpolation. Clarke says, 'Out of one hundred and thirteen manuscripts, the text is wanting in one hundred and twelve. It occurs in no MS. before the tenth century. And the first place the text occurs in Greek, is in the Greek translation of the acts of the Council of Latern, held A.D. 1215.'-Com. on John 1, and remarks at close of chap." Review and Herald, Nov. 5, 1861. | back |  

     

    J.B. FRISBIE 

    "We will make a few extracts, that the reader may see the broad contrast between the God of the Bible brought to light through Sabbath-keeping, and the god in the dark through Sunday-keeping. Catholic Catechism Abridged by the Rt. Rev. John Dubois, Bishop of New York. Page 5. 'Q. Where is God? Ans. God is everywhere. Q. Does God see and know all things? A. Yes, he does know and see all things...Q. Are there more Gods than one? A. No; there is but one God. Q. Are there more persons than one in God? A Yes; in God there are three persons. Q. Which are they? A. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. Q. Are there not three Gods? A. No; the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, are all but one and the same God'...These ideas well accord with those heathen philosophers...We should rather mistrust that the Sunday God [the Trinity] came from the same source that Sunday-keeping did." Review and Herald, Feb. 28, 1854, The Sunday God, p.50. [emphasis supplied].  

     

    J.N. LOUGHBOROUGH 

    "Questions for Bro. Loughborough. Bro. White: The following questions I would like to have you give, or send, to Bro. Loughborough for explanation. W. W. Giles, Toledo, Ohio Question 1. What serious objections is there to the doctrine of the Trinity? ANSWER. There are many objections which we might urge, but on account of our limited space we shall reduce them to the three following: 1. It is contrary to common sense. 2. It is contrary to scripture. 3. Its origin is pagan and fabulous... Instead of pointing us to scripture for proof of the Trinity, we are pointed to the trident of the Persians...This doctrine of the Trinity was brought into the church about the same time with image worship, and keeping the day of the sun, and is but Persian doctrine remodeled. It occupied about three hundred years from its introduction to bring the doctrine to what it is now. It was commenced about 325 A.D., and was not completed till 681. See Milman's Gibbon's Rome, vol. iv, p. 422. It was adopted in Spain in 589, in England in 596, in Africa in 534.-Gib. vol. iv, pp. 114, 345; Milner, vol. i, p. 519." RH-Nov. 5, 1861. | back |  

     

    J.H. WAGGONER 

    "The 'Athanasian creed'...was formulated and the faith defined by Athanasius. Previous to that time there was no settled method of expression, if, indeed, there was anywhere any uniformity of belief. Most of the early writers had been pagan philosophers, who to reach the minds of that class, often made strong efforts to prove that there was a blending of the two systems, Christianity and philosophy. There is abundance of material in their writings to sustain this view. Bingham speaks of the vague views held by some in the following significant terms: "'There were some very early that turned the doctrine of the Trinity into Tritheism, and, instead of three divine persons under the economy of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, brought in three collateral, coordinate, and self- originated beings, making them three absolute and independent principles, without any relation of Father or Son, which is the most proper notion of three gods. And having made this change in the doctrine of the Trinity, they made another change answerable to it in the form of baptism.'-Antiquities, book 11, chap. 3, &4. "Who can distinguish between this form of expression and that put forth by the council of Constantinople in A.D. 381, wherein the true faith is declared to be that of 'an uncreated and consubstantial and co-eternal Trinity?' The truth is that we find the same idea which is here described by Bingham running through much of the orthodox literature of the second and third centuries. There is no proper 'relation of Father and Son' to be found in the words of the council, above quoted...Bingham says this error in regard to a Trinity of three coordinate and self-originated and independent beings arose in the church very early; and so we find it in the earliest authors after the days of the apostles." Thoughts on Baptism, 1878.  

     

    R.F.COTTRELL 

    "That one person is three persons, and that three persons are only one person, is the doctrine which we claim is contrary to reason and common sense. The being and attributes of God are above, beyond, out of reach of my sense and reason, yet I believe them": But the doctrine I object to is contrary, yes, that is the word, to the very sense and reason that God has himself implanted in us. Such a doctrine he does not ask us to believe. A miracle is beyond our comprehension, but we all believe in miracles who believe our own senses. What we see and hear convinces us that there is a power that effected the most wonderful miracle of creation. But our Creator has made it an absurdity to us that one person should be three persons, and three persons but one person; and in his revealed word he has never asked us to believe it. This our friend thinks objectionable... "But to hold the doctrine of the Trinity is not so much an evidence of evil intention as of intoxication from that wine of which all the nations have drunk. The fact that this was one of the leading doctrines, if not the very chief, upon which the bishop of Rome was exalted to the popedom, does not say much in its favor. This should cause men to investigate it for themselves; as when the spirits of devils working miracles undertake the advocacy of the immortality of the soul. Had I never doubted it before, I would now probe it to the bottom, by that word which modern Spiritualism sets at nought... "Revelation goes beyond us; but in no instance does it go contrary to right reason and common sense. God has not claimed, as the popes have, that he could 'make justice of injustice,' nor has he, after teaching us to count, told us that there is no difference between the singular and plural numbers. Let us believe all he has revealed, and add nothing to it." Review and Herald, July 6, 1869.  

     

    A.T. JONES 

    "Another, and most notable opponent, was Servetus who had opposed the Catholic doctrine of the Trinity, and also infant baptism." Review and Herald, June 17, 1884.  

     

    D.W. HULL 

    "The inconsistent positions held by many in regard to the Trinity, as it is termed, has, no doubt, been the prime cause of many other errors. Erroneous views of the divinity of Christ are apt to lead us into error in regard to the nature of the atonement... "The doctrine which we propose to examine, was established by the council of Nice, A.D., 325, and ever since that period, persons not believing this peculiar tenet, have been denounced by popes and priests, as dangerous heretics. It was for a disbelief in this doctrine. that the Arians were anathematized in A.D., 513... "As we can trace this doctrine no further back than the origin of the 'Man of Sin,' and as we find this dogma at that time established rather by force than otherwise, we claim the right to investigate the matter, and ascertain the bearing of Scripture on this subject." Review and Herald, Nov.10, 1859.   

     


     

    What Our Pioneer's Believed About The Father 

     

    JAMES WHITE 

    "To assert that the sayings of the Son and his apostles are the commandments of the Father, is as wide from the truth as the old Trinitarian absurdity that Jesus Christ is the very and eternal God." Review and Herald, Aug. 5, 1852, p.52.  

     

    J.N.ANDREWS 

    "That God is the fountain and source of immortality is plain from the statement of Paul. He speaks thus of God the Father: 'Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen nor can see; to whom be honor and power everlasting; Amen.' 1 Tim. 6:16. This text is evidently designed to teach that the self existent God is the only being who, of himself, possesses this wonderful nature. Others may possess it as derived from him, but he alone is the fountain of immortality. "Our Lord Jesus Christ is the source of this life to us. 'For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.' John 5:26. 'As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.' John 6:57. The Father gives us this life in His Son. 'And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.' 1Jn 5:11,12. These Scriptures do clearly indicate that Christ is the source of endless life, and that those only have this who have Christ." Review and Herald, Jan. 27, 1874 p.52.  

     

    D.M. CANRIGHT 

    "Text: 'But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things.' 1 Cor.8:6... "At the time when the Bible was written, nearly the whole world had adopted either Polytheism or Pantheism. Polytheism taught that there were many gods...In opposition to that, Moses and the prophets set forth the grand fact that this doctrine of many gods was a lie, and that there was but one God, Jehovah the living God... "'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.' Dt. 6:4. Here we strike the key-note of the doctrine of the Deity. 'The Lord our God is ONE Lord.' Not many, not a thousand, not a hundred, not ten, not three, but only ONE-one God... [Ex. 20:3; Dt. 4:35; 2Sam. 7:22; 2Kings 19:15; Neh. 9:6; Psa. 86:10; Isa. 43:10; Isa 44:6,8; Isa. 45:5,22; quoted] No comments of ours can make these declarations plainer. There is just one eternal God and no more,-one who is the Author and Father of all things.  

    "Turning to the New Testament, we find the same doctrine taught just as plainly as in the Old. Neither Moses nor the prophets ever set forth the unity of God more strongly than Jesus himself. He taught it and reiterated it many times. Thus he says: 'The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel: The lord our God is one Lord; and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul...And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth; for there is one God; and there is none other but he.' Mark 12:29-32. "The scribe said, 'There is one God, and there is none other but he.' To this declaration Jesus assented. 'And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.' John 17:3 Jesus says his Father is the only true God. But Trinitarians contradict this by saying that the Son and Holy Ghost are just as much the true God as the Father is... [1 Cor. 8:4-6 quoted] "Says the great apostle, 'There is none other God but one,' and 'there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things.' He tells us who this one God is. It is not the Holy Ghost; it is not Jesus Christ, but it is the Father. Gal. 3:20; 1 Tim. 1:17. 

     

    There is, then, only one wise God. 1 Tim. 2:5; Dt. 6:4. Those who are familiar with the Bible will see that I have selected only a few of the plainest texts upon this doctrine. How the doctrine of the Trinity, of three Gods, can be reconciled with these positive statements I do not know. It seems to me that nothing can be framed which more clearly denies the doctrine of the Trinity, than do the Scriptures above quoted.  

     

    "And then the Bible never uses the phrases, 'Trinity,' 'triune God,' 'three in one,' 'the holy three," 'God the Holy Ghost,' etc. but it does emphatically say there is only one God, the Father. And every argument to prove three Gods in one person, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost, all of them of one substance, and every way equal to each other, and all three forming but one, contradicts itself, contradicts reason, and contradicts the Bible... "God is self-existent, and the source and author of all things,-of angels, of men, of all the worlds,-of everything. Thus Paul says, 'For of him and through him and to him, are all things; to whom be glory forever. Amen.' Rom. 11:36. "He is the source of all life and immortality. Thus, speaking of the Father, Paul says, 'Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto.' 1 Tim. 6:16. Notice that this glorious God is the only one who, in himself, possesses immortality. That is, he is the fountain-head, the source of all life and immortality... "'For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.' John 5:26. This statement is unequivocal. The Father has life in himself, and in his great love for his Son he bestows the same gift upon him; but it will be noticed that the Father is the one from whom the gift came... "How carefully Paul distinguishes between the Father and the Son. He says, 'The Father, of whom are all things,' and 'Jesus Christ, by whom are all things.' The Father is the source of everything. Jesus is the one through whom all things are done. All the authority, the glory, and the power of Christ he received from his Father...  

     

    "A belief in this doctrine is very important. Indeed, it cannot be too strongly insisted upon. Jesus even declares that the knowledge of this truth is necessary to eternal life. 'And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.' John 17:3. "We must know the Father as the only true God. Then there is no true God besides the Father. But we must also know his Son Jesus Christ, whom he has sent. How simple and plain is this doctrine, and how abundantly sustained by the Holy Bible." Review and Herald, Aug. 29, 1878; (emphasis supplied).  

     

     

    A.T. JONES 

    In 1890 Jones writes: 

    "Again, speaking of the appearing of Jesus Christ, the Word says: 'In His times He shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords; who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see.' 1 Tim. 6:15-16. Christ has brought this immortality to light...Now as immortality is to be sought for, and as God is the only one who has it, and as Christ is the only one who has brought it to light, it follows that immortality must be sought of God, through Christ." Bible Questions and Answers Concerning Man, pp. 3-4.  

     

    E.J. WAGGONER 

    "Christ and His Righteousness." 

    "We are mindful of Paul's words, that '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' (1 Cor. 8:6); just as we have already quoted, that it was by Him that God made the worlds. All things proceed ultimately from God, the Father; even Christ Himself proceeded and came forth from the Father..." Christ and His Righteousness p. 19.  

     

    Authors note 

    The Trinitarian doctrine is inconsistent with what Jones and Waggoner preached in 1888 and changes the message.

    "The Word, then, is Christ. This text speaks of his origin. He is the only begotten of the Father. Just how he came into existence, the Bible does not inform us any more definitely; but by this expression and several of a similar kind in the Scriptures, we may believe that Christ came into existence in a manner different from that in which other beings first appeared; that he sprang from the Father's being in a way not necessary for us to understand" The Captain Of Our Salvation, 1886, p. 17.  

     

    E.J. WAGGONER 

    "In arguing the perfect equality of the Father and the Son, and the fact that Christ is in very nature God, we do not design to be understood as teaching that the Father was not before the Son. It should not be necessary to guard this point, lest some should think that the Son existed as soon as the Father; yet some go to that extreme, which adds nothing to the dignity of Christ, but rather detracts from the honor due him, since many throw the whole thing away rather than accept a theory so obviously out of harmony with the language of Scripture, that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. He was begotten, not created. He is of the substance of the Father, so that in his very nature he is God; and since this is so 'It pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.' Col. 1:19...While both are of the same nature, the Father is first in point of time. He is also greater in that he had no beginning, while Christ's personality had a beginning." Signs of the Times, April 8, 1889 p. 214.  

    "The Word was in the beginning." The mind of man cannot grasp the ages that are spanned in this phrase. It is not given to men to know when or how the Son was begotten; but we know that He was the Divine Word, not simply before He came to this earth to die, but even before the world was created...[Micah 5:2 quoted] We know that Christ "proceeded forth and came from God" (John 8:42), but it was so far back in the ages of eternity as to be far beyond the grasp of the mind of man." Christ And His Righteousness, 1890, p. 9.  

     

    "As the Son of the self-existent God, he has by nature all the attributes of Deity. It is true that there are many sons of God; but Christ is the 'only begotten Son of God,' and therefore the Son of God in a sense in which no other being ever was, or ever can be. The angels are sons of God, as was Adam (Job 38:7; Luke 3:38), by creation; Christians are the sons of God by adoption (Rom. 8:14, 15); but Christ is the Son of God by birth." ibid. p. 12. "All things proceed ultimately from God, the Father; even Christ Himself proceeded and came forth from the Father..."ibid. p. 19.  

     

    "The Scriptures declare that Christ is "the only begotten Son of God." He is begotten, not created. As to when He was begotten, it is not for us to inquire, nor could our minds grasp it if we were told. The prophet Micah tells us all that we can know about it, in these words: "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from the days of eternity." Micah 5:2, margin. There was a time when Christ proceeded forth and came from God, from the bosom of the Father (John 8:42; 1:18), but that time was so far back in the days of eternity that to finite comprehension it is practically without beginning." ibid. p. 21, 22; (emphasis supplied).  

     

     

    W.W. PRESCOTT 

    "As Christ was twice born, once in eternity, the only begotten of the Father, and again here in the flesh, thus uniting the divine with the human in that second birth, so we, who have been born once already in the flesh, are to have the second birth, being born again of the Spirit, in order that our experience may be the same, the human and the divine being joined in a life union." Review and Herald, April 14, 1896 p. 232.  

     

    A.T. JONES 

    "He was born of the Holy Ghost. In other words, Jesus Christ was born again. He came from heaven, God's first- born, to the earth, and was born again, But all in Christ's work goes by opposites for us: he, the sinless one, was made to be sin, in order that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. He, the living one, the prince and author of life, died that we might live. He whose goings forth have been from the days of eternity, the first-born of God, was born again, in order that we might be born again.  

    If Jesus Christ had never been born again, could you and I have ever been born again? No. But he was born again, from the world of righteousness into the world of sin; that we might be born again, from the world of sin into the world of righteousness. He was born again, and was made partaker of the human nature, that we might be born again, and so made partakers of the divine nature. He was born again, unto earth, unto sin, and unto man, that we might be born again unto heaven, unto righteousness, and unto God." Review and Herald, Aug. 1, 1899 (Lessons on Faith p. 154.)  

     

     

    JAMES WHITE 

    "Paul affirms of the Son of God that he was in the form of God, and that he was equal with God. 'Who being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal with God.' Phil. 2:6. The reason why it is not robbery for the Son to be equal with the Father is the fact that he is equal... The inexplicable Trinity that makes the godhead three in one and one in three, is bad enough; but that ultra Unitarianism that makes Christ inferior to the Father is worse. Did God say to an inferior, 'Let us make man in our image?'" Review and Herald, Nov. 29, (1877), p. 172.

    "The angels, therefore, are created beings, necessarily of a lower order than their Creator. Christ is the only being begotten of the Father." Past, Present and Future, 1909, p. 52.  

     

    J.M. STEPHENSON 

    "To be the only begotten Son of God must be understood in a different sense than to be a Son by creation; for in that sense all the creatures he has made are sons. Nor can it refer to his miraculous conception, with the virgin Mary, by the Holy Ghost; because he is represented by this endearing title more than four thousand years before his advent in the village of Bethlehem. Moreover, he is represented as being exalted far above the highest orders of men and angels in his primeval nature. He must therefore be understood as being the Son of God in a much higher sense than any other being. His being the only begotten of the Father supposes that none except him were thus begotten; hence he is, in truth and verity the only begotten Son of God; and as such he must be Divine; that is, be a partaker of the Divine nature. 

    This term expresses his highest, and most exalted nature... "The idea of Father and Son supposes priority of the existence of the one, and the subsequent existence of the other. To say that the Son is as old as his Father, is a palpable contradiction of terms. It is a natural impossibility for the Father to be as young as the Son, or the Son to be as old as the Father. If it be said that this term is only used in an accommodated sense, it still remains to be accounted for, why the Father should use as the uniform title of the highest, and most endearing relation between himself and our Lord, a term which, in its uniform signification, would contradict the very idea he wished to convey. If the inspired writers had wished to convey the idea of the co-etaneous existence, and eternity of the Father and Son, they could not possibly have used more incompatible terms. And of this, Trinitarians, had the honesty to acknowledge, in the conclusion of his work on the Son-ship of Christ, that, 'in the order of nature, the Father must have existed Before the Son.'" Review and Herald, Nov. 14, 1854.  

     

     

    D.M. CANRIGHT 

    "'For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son,' &c. According to this, Jesus Christ is begotten of God in a sense that no other being is; else he could not be his only begotten Son. Angels are called sons of God, and so are righteous men; but Christ is his Son in a higher sense, in a closer relation, than either of these. God made men and angels out of materials already created. He is the author of their existence, their Creator, hence their Father. But Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father's own substance. He was not created out of material as the angels and other creatures were. He is truly and emphatically the 'Son of God,'...Heb.1:1-8 quoted.  

    "By this we see that a very plain and great distinction is made between the Son and all the angels. They are all commanded to worship him. No created being can ever be worthy of worship, however high he may be, neither would it be right nor just for God to bid one order of his creatures to worship another. Divinity alone is worthy of worship, and to worship anything else would be idolatry. Hence Paul places Christ far above the angels, and makes a striking contrast between them." Review and Herald, June 18, 1867.  

     

     

    R.F. COTTRELL 

    "Men have gone to opposite extremes in the discussion of the doctrine of the Trinity. Some have made Christ a mere man, commencing his existence at his birth in Bethlehem; others have not been satisfied with holding him to be what the Scriptures so clearly reveal him, the pre-existing Son of God, but have made him the 'God and Father' of himself." Review and Herald, July 6, 1869.  

    "But if I am asked what I think of Jesus Christ, my reply is, 'I believe all that the Scriptures say of him. If the testimony represents him as being in glory with the Father before the world was, I believe it. If it is said that he was in the beginning with God, that he was God, that all things were made by him and for him, and that without him was not anything made that was made, I believe it. If the Scriptures say he is the Son of God, I believe it. If it is declared that the Father sent his Son into the world, I believe he had a Son to send...  

     

    "It may be objected, If the Father and the Son are two distinct beings, do you not, in worshipping the Son and calling him God, break the first commandment of the decalogue? "No; it is the Father's will 'That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father.' We cannot break the commandment and dishonor God by obeying him. The Fathers says of the Son, 'Let all the angels of God worship him.' Should angels refuse to worship the Son, they would rebel against the Father. Children inherit the name of their Father. The Son of God 'hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than' the angels. That name is the name of his Father. The Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever.' Heb.1. The Son is called 'The mighty God.' Isa. 9:6. And when he comes again to earth his waiting people will exclaim, 'This is our God.' Isa. 25:9.  

     

    It is the will of the Father that we should thus honor the Son. In doing so we render supreme honor to the Father. If we dishonor the Son, we dishonor the Father; for he requires us to honor his son. "But though the Son is called God yet there is a 'God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ' 1Pet. 1:3. Though the Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever,' yet, that throne is given him of his Father; and because he loved righteousness and hated iniquity, he further says, 'Therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee.' Heb. 1:9. 'God hath made that same Jesus both Lord and Christ.' Acts. 2:36. The Son is 'the everlasting Father,' not of himself, nor of his Father, but of his children. His language is, 'I and the children which God hath given me.' Heb. 2:13." Review and Herald, June 1, 1869.  

     

     

    JOHN MATTESON 

    "Christ is the only literal son of God. 'The only begotten of the Father.' John 1:14. He is God because he is the Son of God; not by virtue of His resurrection. If Christ is the only begotten of the Father, then we cannot be begotten of the Father in a literal sense. It can only be in a secondary sense of the word." Review and Herald, Oct. 12, 1869, p. 123.  

     

    URIAH SMITH 

    "The Scriptures nowhere speak of Christ as a created being, but on the contrary plainly state that he was begotten of the Father. (See remarks of Rev. 3:14, where it is shown that Christ is not a created being.) But while as the Son he does not possess a coeternity of past existence with the Father, the beginning of his existence, as the begotten of the Father, antedates the entire work of creation, in relation to which he stands as joint creator with God. John 1:3; Heb 1:2. Could not the Father ordain that to such a being worship should be rendered equally with himself, without its being idolatry on the part of the worshiper? He has raised him to positions which make it proper that he should be worshipped, and has even commanded that worship should be rendered him, which would not have been necessary had he been equal with the Father in eternity of existence.  

    Christ himself declares that 'as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.' John 5:26. The Father has 'highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.' Phil. 2:9. And the Father himself says, 'Let all the angels of God worship him.' Heb. 1:6. These testimonies show that Christ is now an object of worship equally with the Father; but they do not prove that with him he holds an eternity of past existence." Thoughts on the Book of Daniel and the Revelation 1882, p. 430.  

     

    "God alone is without beginning. At the earliest epoch when a beginning could be,--a period so remote that to finite minds it is essentially eternity,--appeared the Word. 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.' John 1:1. This uncreated Word was the Being, who, in the fullness of time, was made flesh, and dwelt among us. His beginning was not like that of any other being in the universe. It is set forth in the mysterious expressions, 'his [God's] only begotten Son' (John 3:16; 1John 4:9), 'the only begotten of the Father' (John 1:14), and 'I proceeded forth and came from God.' John 8:42. Thus it appears that by some divine impulse or process, not creation, known only to Omniscience, and possible only to Omnipotence, the Son of God appeared." Looking Unto Jesus, 1898, p. 10. | back |  

     

     

    JOSEPH BATES 

    "My parents were members of long standing in the Congregational church, with all of their converted children thus far, and anxiously hoped that we would also unite with them. But they embraced some points of faith which I could not understand. I will name two only: their mode of baptism, and doctrine of the Trinity. 

    My father, who had been a deacon of long standing with them, labored to convince me that they were right in points of doctrine...I said to my father, 'If you can convince me that we are one in this sense, that you are my father, and I your son; and also that I am your father, and you my son, then I can believe in the Trinity.'...In a few days I was immersed and joined the Christian church."

    JAMES WHITE 

    "'Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for THE faith which was once delivered unto the saints...'Jude, 3-4...The exhortation to contend for the faith delivered to the saints, is to us alone. And it is very important for us to know what the apostle meant, that we may know what for and how to contend. In the 4th verse he gives us the reason why we should contend for THE faith, a particular faith; 'for there are certain men,' or a certain class who deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ...The way spiritualizers this way have disposed of or denied the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ is first using the old unscriptural Trinitarian creed, viz., that Jesus Christ is the eternal God, though they have not one passage to support it, while we have plain scripture testimony in abundance that he is the Son of the eternal God." The Day Star, Jan. 24, 1846.

    What Our Pioneer's Believed About Gods Spirit 

     

    J.N. LOUGHBOROUGH 

    "The Spirit of God is spoken of in the Scriptures as God's representative- the power by which he works, the agency by which all things are upheld. This is clearly expressed by the Psalmist...Psa. 139:7-10. We learn from this language that when we speak of the Spirit of God we are really speaking of his presence and power." Review and Herald, Sept. 13, 1898, p. 690.  

     

    M.C. WILCOX 

    "God is the source of all life...God's life is eternal life, even as He is 'the eternal God.'...'But God is a person; how can His life be everywhere present?' God is everywhere present by His Spirit...The presence of God is therefore His Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is therefore the life of God. And so we read of 'the Spirit of life' (Rom. 8:2), that 'the Spirit is life because of righteousness' (verse 10); that 'the Spirit giveth life' (2 Cor. 3:6)." Signs of the Times, June 2, 1898.  

     

    E. J. WAGGONER 

    "Finally, we know the Divine unity of the Father and the Son from the fact that both have the same Spirit. Paul, after saying that they that are in the flesh cannot please God, continues: "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His." Rom. 8:9. Here we find that the Holy Spirit is both the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ." Christ And His Righteousness, 1892, p.23.  

     

    A.J. MORTON 

    "The Holy Spirit is divine because it proceeds from divinity. You can no more separate divinity from the Spirit of God and Christ than you can separate divinity from God and Christ. It is, therefore, the presence of the Spirit in the words of God's promises which enable us to receive the divine nature from those promises." Signs of the Times, Oct. 26, 1891, p.342.  

     

    URIAH SMITH 

    "J.W.W. asks: 'Are we to understand that the Holy Ghost is a person, the same as the Father and the Son? Some claim that it is, others that it is not.' "Ans.-The terms 'Holy Ghost,' are a harsh and repulsive translation. It should be 'Holy Spirit' (hagion pneuma) in every instance. This Spirit is the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of Christ; the Spirit being the same whether it is spoken of as pertaining to God or Christ. But respecting this Spirit, the Bible uses expressions which cannot be harmonized with the idea that it is a person like the Father and the Son. Rather it is shown to be a divine influence from them both, the medium which represents their presence and by which they have knowledge and power through all the universe, when not personally present. 

    Christ is a person, now officiating as priest in the sanctuary in heaven; and yet he says that wherever two or three are gathered in his name, he is there in the midst. Mt. 18:20. How? Not personally, but by his Spirit.  

     

    In one of Christ's discourses (John, chapters 14,15, and 16) this Spirit is personified as 'the Comforter,' and as such has the personal and relative pronouns, 'he,' 'him,' and 'whom,' applied to it. But usually it is spoken of in a way to show that it cannot be a person, like the Father and the Son. For instance, it is often said to be 'poured out' and 'shed abroad.' But we never read about God or Christ being poured out or shed abroad.  

     

    If it was a person, it would be nothing strange for it to appear in bodily shape; and yet when it has so appeared, that fact has been noted as peculiar. Thus Luke 3:22 says: 'And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him.' But the shape is not always the same; for on the day of Pentecost it assumed the form of 'cloven tongues like as of fire.' Acts 2:3,4. Again we read of 'the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.' Rev. 1:4; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6.  

     

    This is unquestionably simply a designation of the Holy Spirit, put in this form to signify its perfection and completeness. But it could hardly be so described if it was a person. We never read of the seven Gods or the Seven Christ's." Review and Herald, Oct. 28,1890.  

     

     

    J.H. WAGGONER 

    "There is one question which has been much controverted in the theological world upon which we have never presumed to enter. It is that of the personality of the Spirit of God. Prevailing ideas of person are very diverse, often crude, and the word is differently understood; so that unity of opinion on this point cannot be expected until all shall be able to define precisely what they mean by the word, or until all shall agree upon one particular sense in which the word shall be used.  

    But as this agreement does not exist, it seems that a discussion of the subject cannot be profitable, especially as it is not a question of direct revelation. We have a right to be positive in our faith and our statements only when the words of Scripture are so direct as to bring the subject within the range of positive proof. "We are not only willing but anxious to leave it just where the word of God leaves it. From it we learn that the Spirit of God is that awful and mysterious power which proceeds from the throne of the universe, and which is the efficient actor in the work of creation and of redemption." The Spirit Of God; Its Offices And Manifestations, 1877.  

     

     

    MRS. S.M.I. HENRY 

    "Q. Do you think the Spirit of God is a person, or is it simply the power by which God works, and which he has given to man for his use? "A. The pronouns used in connection with the Spirit must lead us to conclude that he is a person,-the personality of God which is the source of all power and life." THE ABIDING SPIRIT, 1899.  

     

    M.C. WILCOX 

    "28.THE PERSONALITY OF THE SPIRIT Ques. 1. Some say the Holy Spirit is a person; others say He is a personality; and others, a power only. Till how long should this be a matter of discussion? Ans. 1. The personality of the Holy Spirit will probably be a matter of discussion always. Sometimes the Spirit is mentioned as being 'poured out,' as in Acts 2. All through the Scriptures, the Spirit is represented as being the operating power of God...The reason why the Scriptures speak of the Holy Spirit as a person, it seems to us, is that it brings to us, and to every soul that believes, the personal presence of our Lord Jesus Christ...  

    "Because of the lack of faith, it was 'expedient,' necessary, that He should go away; for He declared, 'If I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I go, I will send Him unto you.' John 16:7. His disciples could not realize the presence of the Spirit of God as long as Christ was with them personally. In that sense, He could be with those only who were in His immediate presence. But when He went away, and the Spirit came, it could make Christ present with everyone, wherever that one was with Paul in Athens, Peter in Jerusalem, Thomas in India, John in Patmos.  

     

    "These are simply illustrations. Wherever God's children are, there is the Spirit - not an individual person, as we look upon persons, but having the power to make present the Father and the Son. That Spirit is placed upon God's messengers, the angels; but the angels are not the Spirit. That Spirit is placed upon God's servants, His human messengers; but the human messengers are not the Spirit. They are possessed by the Spirit, and used by the Spirit, and have within them the power of the Spirit; but they are not the Spirit. The Spirit is independent of all these human or material agencies. Why not leave it there? Why not know that the Spirit, the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of Deity, goes out into all the earth, bringing the presence of God to every heart that will receive it?"

    M.C. WILCOX 

    "Ques. 187. The Holy Spirit and Ministering Spirits "What is the difference between the Holy Spirit and the ministering spirits (angels), or are they the same? "Ans. The Holy Spirit is the mighty energy of the Godhead, the life and power of God flowing out from Him to all parts of the universe, and thus making a living connection between His throne and all creation. As is expressed by another: 'The Holy Spirit is the breath of spiritual life in the soul. The impartation of the Spirit is the impartation of the life of Christ.' It thus makes Christ everywhere present. 

    To use a crude illustration, just as a telephone carries the voice of a man, and so makes that voice present miles away, so the Holy Spirit carries with it all the potency of Christ in making Him everywhere present with all His power, and revealing Him to those in harmony with His law. Thus the Spirit is personified in Christ and God, but never revealed as a separate person. 

     

    Never are we told to pray to the Spirit; but to God for the Spirit. Never do we find in the Scriptures prayers to the Spirit, but for the Spirit." Questions And Answers Gathered From The Question Corner Department Of The Signs Of The Times, Pacific Press, 1911 p.18-182.  

     

    "And yet there is order observed in God's working; there is the regular channel through which His life force flows to the children of men, and by which His blessed Spirit does its work. We read: 'The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John; who bare record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ.' Rev. 1:1,2. Here we have the order of divine procedure: (1) The Father; (2) Jesus Christ; (3) Christ's angel; (4) John the apostle and prophet; (5) the church. And as respects the latter, the messages to the church are given through the ministers, or watchmen, of that church. "God in His wisdom can work and does work in other ways, because conditions of men demand it, but this is the regular way.  

     

    "The glory supreme and insupportable of the Godhead is represented in the Father. 1 Tim. 6:16. Jesus Christ has forever blended the divine with the human, and from Him flows out the Spirit of life to all His children. The angels are the mediums, the ganglia, on these great currents of God's life to reinforce  so to speak, these life currents. They can bear without exaltation God's Spirit and its outshining glory, and in themselves bring the presence of God to His children, and drive back the angels of evil which seek to destroy them." M.C. WILCOX, Signs of the Times, Feb. 26, 1908.


    Her most Solemn Warning! Then a Prediction,
    Now History! A response to the Elders Digest
    Justification of the Trinity

    “The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure.” Selected Messages Book 1-Page 204, 205  

      

    It is at this point that I would like to address several statements and especially the above statement in detail. The trinity doctrine is one such system of philosophy where it is stated that Jesus isn’t really the Son of God but an eternal co-equal being with God.  It is stated that God isn’t really the Father either.  They are acting out roles and their relationship as father and son should only be viewed metaphorically.  Thus when the Bible states “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3), it really doesn’t mean that the Father is the only God.  There is a separate Holy Spirit God, as well.  Thus Jesus didn’t really mean the only TRUE God. The trinity doctrine has the Father speaking only metaphorically when He told us that “This is my beloved son, Hear Him”.  He is not really the Father, and Jesus was really not His Son. Thus this new philosophy undermines our traditional and root understanding as the Bible simply reveals it and actually is calling God a liar.  We see the following philosophical views of God in the church today. 

     

    Gordon Jensen: "A plan of salvation was encompassed in the covenant made by the Three Persons of the Godhead, who possessed the attributes of Deity equally. In order to eradicate sin and rebellion from the universe and to restore harmony and peace, one of the divine Beings accepted, and entered into, the role of the Father, another the role of the Son. The remaining divine Being, the Holy Spirit, was also to participate in effecting the plan of salvation. All of this took place before sin and rebellion transpired in heaven. By accepting the roles that the plan entailed, the divine Beings lost none of the powers of Deity. With regard to their eternal existence and other attributes, they were one and equal. But with regard to the plan of salvation, there was, in a sense, a submission on the part of the Son to the Father." Adventist Review, October 31, 1996, p.12 (Week of Prayer readings) 

    “The Father–Son relationship in the Godhead should be understood in a metaphorical sense, not in a literal sense”. (Max Hatton, Understanding the Trinity, p. 97)

    The Holy Spirit takes the place of Jesus - (Max Hatton, Understanding the Trinity, p. 104)

    J. R. Spangler: To me this signifies the interchangeableness of the members of the Godhead since they are one in action and purpose." - Review & Herald, Oct. 21, 1971

    Thus the final view of God and Jesus actually look nothing like the Father and Son relationship referred to over 70 times in the New Testament alone. This is done in spite of the fact that the term “trinity”, “triune” or any other type word is ever used in the scriptures. No reference to roles or metaphors used by God can be found either. Their Father & Son role is used way too much to be viewed in the prophetic sense only. The only place we see this type of philosophy is in fallen apostate Christianity and Rome. 

    TRUTH: One could put it this way.  Christ was begotten before creation from the Father.  He is truly the Son. The Spirit flows like a river from the Father, who is the source, through the Son, and to the people. 

     On the contrary the SDA Church teaches that before creation, there existed three divine beings. Unrelated, who because of the fall of man, entered into three roles - Father, Son and Holy Ghost. They plainly deny the Filial and Ontological Sonship of Christ. Here is a quote from the Bible Research Institute:

     “The sonship of Jesus, however, is not ontological, but functional. In the plan of salvation each member of the trinity has accepted a particular role”. - The Trinity In Scripture by Gerhard Pfandl, Biblical Research Institute, Silver Spring, MD. June 1999.


    Theshackgod

    This is not the one True God of the Bible. This is an idolatrous picture of God that contradicts what God has revealed about Himself. Christians should know that to believe in 3 gods steals their rightful birthright to the kingdom of God and can only be classified as 'spiritual poison'. Believing in "God the Holy Spirit" allows the god of this world to steal your rightful place in the kingdom of God. The Bible truth is:
    God in Jesus, Jesus in you. When you have Jesus IN you, you have entered in at the gate/door and not over the wall through a false doctrine that is a robber and thief. You THEN have BOTH the FATHER AND THE SON! THEY LIVE INSIDE YOU BY THEIR SPIRIT=POWER (CHARACTER) AND PRESENCE)

    Heed the warnings of scripture.

    2Th. 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Terry Hill:


    The Bible Truth
    : "The Scriptures clearly indicate the relation between God and Christ, and they bring to view as clearly the personality and individuality of each." "God is the Father of Christ; Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been MADE equal with the Father. All the counsels of God are opened to His Son." (Testimonies for the Church, Volume Eight, page 268, paragraphs 1 & 3.)

    BIBLE TRUTH ABOUT GOD AND HIS SON:

    I believe in God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is a Spirit, omnipresent, omniscient, having all power, creator, preserver, and self-existent. As being holy, just and beneficent, I believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, having a body in fashion and form like man, divine in his nature, human in his person, godlike in his character and power. He is a Savior for sinners, a priest to God, a mediator between God and man, and King in Zion. He will be all to his people, God with us forever. The spirit of the Most High is in him, the power of the Most High is given him, the people of the Most High are purchased by him, the glory of the Most High shall be with him, and the kingdom of the Most High is his on earth. William Miller’s Works Vol 1 (1842) page 33



    “At first, they [Adventists] were generally Trinitarians; subsequently they have, almost unanimously, rejected the Trinitarian doctrine as unscriptural." Their accepted statements regarding the Godhead were, "That there is one living and true God, the Father Almighty, who is unoriginated, independent, and eternal, the Creator and Supporter of all worlds; and that this God is one spiritual intelligence, one infinite mind, ever the same, never varying. . . That Christ is the Son of God, the promised Messiah and Saviour of the world. . . ." (Joshua V. Himes, "Christian Connection", Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, edited by T. Newton Brown, Boston: Shattuck & Co., 1835, p. 362).


      UN-SCRIPTURAL DOCTRINE:


      WHAT  DOES  TRINITY  MEAN?


    2 Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    Interesting that John says “both”. Why does he not say all three? 

    UCG’s Latest Booklet Takes Trinity to Task

    July 26, 2011

    The doctrine of the Trinity is one of mainstream Christianity’s most revered and widely held doctrines. But is it true? The latest booklet published by the United Church of God—Is God a Trinity?addresses that doctrine head on.

    The booklet, the 34th produced by the United Church of God, examines this teaching that many churches admit is confusing and incomprehensible even as they make it a litmus test to define who is and isn’t a Christian.

    As one astonishing quote (from a book by two theologians) puts it: “The mind of man cannot fully understand the mystery of the Trinity. He who has tried to understand the mystery fully will lose his mind; but he who would deny the Trinity will lose his soul”!

    This 88-page booklet covers the long and involved story of how the Trinity doctrine came to be the accepted belief of the world’s Christianity. As you’ll see from numerous quotes in the booklet, many scholars, theologians and Bible resources openly admit that the Trinity doctrine isn’t found in the Bible, acknowledging that it came along officially in several stages in the 300s A.D.—centuries after the last books of the Bible were written!

    The booklet documents that, as one historian states, “Nearly every nation of antiquity possessed a similar doctrine” and “All the ancient nations believed in the Trinity” many centuries before Christianity.

    As readers will learn, these ancient beliefs reemerged in the early centuries after the apostles had passed from the scene and became a core doctrine of a competing church deeply compromised by its accommodation with paganism.

    The Trinity was never part of the teaching of the true Church, but came about as later theologians debated the nature of God the Father and Jesus Christ in two major church councils—at Nicaea in A.D. 325 and Constantinople in 381. The Trinity doctrine as generally understood today was adopted at the latter council, and other views—including the true understanding of the nature of God—were denounced as heresy, and those holding other views rigorously persecuted.

    Chapter titles of the booklet include “Is the Trinity Biblical?” “The Surprising Origins of the Trinity Doctrine,” “How Is God Revealed in the Bible?” “How Is God One?” “Is the Holy Spirit a Person?” “The Holy Spirit—God’s Transforming Power” and “God’s Purpose for You.”

    The booklet describes how the Trinity doctrine insidiously masks one of the Bible’s greatest truths—that man and women, created in God’s image, have the awesome destiny to eventually become part of the very family of God, and that God is a family into which others will be born rather than a closed Trinity.

    The booklet will be printed and mailed in early August. United Church of God members do NOT need to request a copy; it will be mailed automatically to all member households on file.

    It is now available online in HTML format, PDF

     format, .epub format and .mobi format.

    Answer
    QUESTION: If the doctrine of the Trinity is so fundamental to Christianity, as Trinitarians claim, why is there a complete failure on the part of Jesus and his apostles to articulate it anywhere?


    ANSWER: Jesus nor any of his apostles articulated the belief in a trinity.  The Christian Trinity is actually an Apostate teaching which denounces Jesus as the Christ, for the fact of the omission.  Simply put, the teachings of the trinity is simply not the teachings of Christ. 

    Matter of fact, the scriptures states, "Everyone that pushes ahead and does not remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God." (2 John 1:9)

    The man-made Trinity doctrine does just that, it does not remain in the teaching of the Christ.  Christ is not even named or mentioned in the entire doctrine. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are NAMELESS. The doctrine is generic in it's form and non specific. You would not be able to find a scripture that states the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit are coequal.      

    The teaching of Christ is that “the Father is greater than I” (John 14:28)   So we have Christ teaching that the Father is Greater than he is and the Trinity is teaching a different doctrine or gospel that the son is equal to the Father.  The Trinity doctrine actually rejects the teachings of Christ and this is the AntiChrist.

    Jesus Christ taught that, “God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

    Yet the Trinity doctrine teaches another doctrine that God became flesh, it teaches the son of man is God.  No where in the Bible does it say God is a man or that the son of man is God.  The scriptures actually say the OPPOSITE of Trinitarian Beliefs.  So which is Inspired?  The Holy Trinity or the Holy Bible?

    Numbers 23:19 says, "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent:.”  The Trinity opposes this Inspired Scripture and some even go to blaspheme God's Word by stating that God’s Word has changed.  Well folks, “the truth” never changes.

    The “Trinity” was a way to control people, and if they rejected the Holy Trinity, they were branded by the Pagan Roman Emperor.  Today, people are still being controlled and branded by accepting this doctrine.  

    To insure that people would be forced into accepting the trinity, shortly after the 381 council, Emperor Theodosius’declared:

       …let us believe in the one diety of the father, Son and Holy Spirit, in equal majesty and in a holy Trinity. We authorize the followers of this law to assume the title Catholic Christians; but as for the others, since in out judgment they are foolish madmen, we decree that the shall be branded with the ignominious name of heretics, and shall not presume to give their conventicles the name of churches. They will suffer in the first place the chastisement of divine condemnation an the second the punishment of out authority, in accordance with the will of heaven shall decide to inflict...(Theodosian Code XVI.1.2. Cited in Bettenson H, ed., Documents of the Christian Church, London: Oxford University Press, 1943, p. 31).

    Part of the problem of the trinitarian view of one God who manifests Himself in three modes is that it demands that God could not have different wills.  Yet Jesus taught, Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done (Luke 22:42).

    Jesus is clearly stating that on this point He had a different will than the Father. If Jesus was part of the trinity, He could not have a different will than the Father.  Clearly then, the trinity doctrine is not a teaching of the Christ for if Jesus was God, he wouldn’t have the need to PRAY or ask for permission.

    Trinity Doctrine Error : A Jewish Analys...Some trinitarians explain the Trinity doctrine by reference to the three main colors united in one rainbow. Others explain how the understanding, the conscience, and the will blending together in one man illustrate the Trinity. Still others compare the Trinity to three lit candles in one room blending into one light. None of these illustrations satisfactorily offer an analogy of how three distinct almighty and eternal beings make one almighty and eternal being. The absolute uni-personality of God is the first principle of the Jewish Scriptures and the New Testament. Trinitarian Christians do not deny that there is one God, but differ as to the absolute unity of God. They speak of the Godhead as a Trinity composed of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Trinitarianism maintains that the term God includes not only the Father, but Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Yet, even the New Testament shows that Jesus was a person as distinct from God as the disciples were distinct from him.

    Trinity Is Three Gods

    Trinitarians claim they are forbidden by the Nicene Creed to say there is or they believe in three Gods. Yet, when their doctrine is explained, they DO NOT BELIEVE IN ONE GOD.  They believe in three gods. Here is one of my charts to explain this contradiction.

    Click the image for the larger view

    I was contacted by Steve Rudd some years back about the trinity. He has a big trinity web site based in Canada (http://bible.ca/). He really hates Oneness people. He has all sorts of lies on his web site about us. I challenged him about his false doctrine. He told me he believed the word "God" only describes the nature of the Divine Being. To him God meant only Deity. He claimed the Father was Deity, the Son was Deity, and the Holy Ghost was Deity, but they were all one God. I told him he was lying to the people. By saying one God he was implying one Being.  When he said one God he was saying one essence or one nature. He sent me the little human example similar to the one you see above. In it he makes human kind the same as God kind. As all persons are a separate human, so all persons in the trinity are a separate God. I challenged him that if that is the case, then he believed in three separate Beings, three separate Spirits, and three separate bodies. To my shock and surprise, he wrote back that he did. It was easy then for me to see that trinitarians believe in three separate Gods, each has his own body, his own Spirit, and was a separate being from the other two.

    Trinitarians do not want us Oneness people to zero in on there being more than one Spirit and more than one Body. They want us to ignore this. When I first began using it back in the late 80s, I was shocked at how many trinitarians when I examined them, were really oneness. They just held to the trinitarian doctrine. When I asked one Minister if he was trinity or oneness he said trinity. I asked him if he believed there was more than one Spirit that was God. He said no, he believe in one Spirit. I asked him if he believed each person in the trinity has his own separate body, so that when we get to heaven we will see three of them. He was puzzled at first and said yes. When I said that means you believe in three gods then. He replied he believed God had one body and when we get to heaven we will see one God who is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I then told him, you are not trinity, you are Oneness. He told me, if being oneness means when I get to heaven I will not see three separate Gods, then I am oneness then.

    I was surprised how easy it was for him to switch his identity with just a few simple questions.

    Many of us make it to hard for simple minded people to understand. We go on the attack rather than be a teacher by asking good simple questions.

    Is God one Spirit or three?
    Does God have one body or are there three separate bodies in heaven as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost?
    Is God one Being or three separate Beings?
    When we get to heaven will we see three separate Gods?
    Explaining the Oneness of God always gets confusing when talking about the Father, the Son of God, and the Holy Ghost. Many Oneness and Trinitarians are both guilty of spreading lies and confusion on this subject. Having studied the Godhead for over 40 years, I can say without any equivocation there is One God and One Spirit and He has one Body. Man was made in the image and likeness of that one Body.

    We believe God has always been Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. We can translate that into Deity, Body, and Spirit whether it is in heaven or upon earth. If it is so on earth is so in heaven.

    God is not Father and Deity only.
    God is not Father and Spirit only.
    God is also Father and Son.

    Understanding God is the greatest revelation of the Bible. When we understand God we can understand Jesus.

    If we are false on God we will be false on Jesus.

    When Jesus said: "I and my Father are one", he was not talking about unity. He was saying they were one person, and he was the visible image of the invisible God (Father).

    If you are trinitarian and was baptized in the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost: you need to be rebaptized according to Acts 2:38, in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the name above all names.

    If you do not know anyone to baptize you, then fly, drive, hitch-hike, or walk to Tampa, Florida to Jesus House.

    Charts

    The above chart illustrating Truth is one of several hundred that Pastor Reckart has made over the years. No other Apostolic Oneness Pastor in the world has drawn and illustrated more Truth. I have placed many of them on the internet on my web pages. Many, many have not been. I use them in seminars as well as my own ministry here at Jesus House. Sometime in the future I plan to organize them by subject and put them into a notebook style Bible College Course. Because I am particular who has them, I will be very select in who receives a copy. I am interested only in passing on to another generation of great men, many great usable charts for lots of Apostolic Bible studies. Please do not flood my mail box asking for a copy. When I have this project completed I will at that time decide who will receive the information. Many men hang around for a little while and then go off the deep end with some crazy revelation. I do not want my materials in the hands of these novice heretics. No trinitarian need even ask. And my enemies, forget about it. You hate them anyway :). But for the great men of God, just wait. All good things come to those who wait.

    The Office of Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church seeks unity of all Christians during 2012. Sweet, ain't it? The main condition is to accept the Trinity, a Roman Catholic invention of the fourth century. The corporate SDA Church has no problem with that since it accepted the trinity in 1980 at the GC meetings in Dallas, TX. There some Adventist folks, however, that do not accept the trinity, and will therefore be excluded from this unity. They follow the beliefs of all the old, faithful Advent pioneers who rejected the trinity. Will these folks be treated like the Albigenses and Waldenses who also rejected the trinity founded by the Roman Catholic Church in 380 A.D. at the Council of Constantinople? It may turn out that way if history gives us any lesson.

    "Christ calls for unity. But He does not call for us to unify on wrong practices. The God of heaven draws a sharp contrast between pure, elevating, ennobling truth and false, misleading doctrines. He calls sin and impenitence by the right name. He does not gloss over wrongdoing with a coat of untempered mortar. I urge our brethren to unify upon a true, scriptural basis."--Manuscript 10, 1905.

    MOTU PROPRIO DATA

    OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF 
    BENEDICT XVI

    FOR THE INDICTION OF THE YEAR OF FAITH

    1. The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime. It begins with baptism (cf. Rom 6:4), through which we can address God as Father, and it ends with the passage through death to eternal life, fruit of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, whose will it was, by the gift of the Holy Spirit, to draw those who believe in him into his own glory (cf. Jn 17:22). To profess faith in the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is to believe in one God who is Love (cf. 1 Jn 4:8): the Father, who in the fullness of time sent his Son for our salvation; Jesus Christ, who in the mystery of his death and resurrection redeemed the world; the Holy Spirit, who leads the Church across the centuries as we await the Lord’s glorious return.

    Satan’s Deadliest Lie

    God’s enemy and our enemy, the Devil, has been trying to rob us of one of the greatest blessings which we can experience in this life. Our God and heavenly Father has given us blessings which are so wonderful that we can hardly find the words to explain them.

    The first great blessing is that our Father loves us so much that He gave His Son to die for our sins. It was His own Son that He gave; His only begotten Son. One who was begotten from the very substance of the Father Himself. The Father and His Son were together for myriads and myriads of years. They were very close to one another, and the Father loved the Son with a very great love (See Proverbs 8:22-31). Yet, God loved fallen humanity so much that instead of condemning humanity to the everlasting death they deserved, He made a covenant with His only begotten Son, the Son of His bosom, the One whom He loved from the days of eternity, to die for us (Romans 8:32). This truly did happen. It was for us that the God of heaven gave His true Son to die.

    The second great blessing which the Father has given us, is that He Himself, and His Son, Jesus, have come to live with us. Please think about what I just said. God HIMSELF, the almighty One lives in everyone who is a genuine Christian!! I do not mean that His angels are with us (although they are). I do not mean that His power is with us (although it is). What I mean is that He Himself, the great God, and His Son, live with us, and in us, if we are His. Do you ask HOW this is possible? I do not know how. I know that God does not live in us in His bodily form, but nevertheless, His presence is here. His power, His life, He Himself is here, even though I cannot see Him. This is what He promises in His word:

    “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23—See also 1 Corinthians 6:17, 19; 2 Corinthians 6:16; Acts 17:27, 28.)

    Can you see how great these two blessings are which God has given to us?

    • He has given His own, only begotten Son to die for us so that we can be saved from the penalty of everlasting death. How wonderful it is that such a person could love us so much. Surely we ought to love and serve Him in return!
    • He Himself and His blessed Son will live with us if we choose to give our lives to Him. He will be our best Friend, our close, constant Companion. We can be the friends of the Almighty God. He Himself, personally, will be with us always and forever.

    There is no greater blessing in all of Christian experience. I myself have found out that fellowship with God and His Son is the highest joy that I can have in this life. Can you imagine? God, the Almighty One, is my personal Friend!! When I talk with Him, I know He is in charge of my life. I forget my problems because I know that He takes care of them all.

    This is what eternal life means. To know and to have personal fellowship with God (who is the Father) and with His Son, Jesus Christ. This is what Jesus Himself said:

    “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3)

    The Teaching of Antichrist

    Therefore, any false teaching which takes these blessings from me must be one of Satan’s most dangerous false doctrines. Yet there is a very popular teaching among Christian churches which destroys these two great blessings. This false teaching says that:

    • Jesus was not really the true, begotten Son of God.
    • The true Son of God did not really die.
    • Jesus and His Father, our God, are not personally present with us, but have sent another person instead.

    You can see that this is a very deadly false doctrine. Yet most Christians have accepted this teaching. Maybe even you have accepted this teaching. This doctrine says that Jesus was not truly begotten of the Father in eternity past. It teaches that Christ and God are the same age, that they are equal in power and authority. I ask you, how then could Jesus be the Son of God? Can a son be the same age as his father? This doctrine denies that Jesus is, and always was, the Son of God. The Bible says of this doctrine:

    “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22)

    By now you may have realized that I am talking about the doctrine of the Trinity. This is the false doctrine which denies that Jesus is the true, begotten Son of God. According to this teaching, Jesus was not really the Son of God, but was actually one of three Beings who are all God. This doctrine teaches that He was only the Son of God by name, but not in the sense that He was begotten from God. If this were true, then Jesus could not really have died on the cross, because God cannot die, and according to this teaching, Jesus was completely equal with God!! They say that only the body died, but the spirit was still alive and safe with the Father. If this were true, then what did God suffer when Jesus died? Did only a human body die on Calvary. Could a human body pay for the sins of the world?

    As long as you believe this doctrine, you will never be able to realize what God has done for you when He gave His only begotten Son to die for your sins. You will never understand how much He loves you. How can we love and serve Him properly if we don’t appreciate how much He loves us?

    The second deadly danger of the Trinity doctrine is that it pushes God and Jesus far away from us. Jesus has made the following promises:

    • “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)
    • “…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20)
    • “…If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23)
    • “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” (John 14:18)
    • “Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.…” (John 14:28)
    • “…truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:3)

    He promises that He and His Father PERSONALLY will be with us. But according to the doctrine of the Trinity, it is not Jesus Himself and the Father Himself who are with us, but it is another person called The Holy Spirit. This is the second false teaching of the Trinity doctrine.

    Who Is
    The Holy Spirit?

    The truth is that there are only two divine Beings, not three. The two Beings are God, the Father, and Jesus Christ, His Son. (Please see 1 Corinthians. 8:6; 1 John 1:3; Revelation 5:13; 7:10; etc.) It is true that there is a Holy Spirit, but the question is, “Who, or what is the Holy Spirit?” The Holy Spirit is not a third Being, separate from God and Jesus. The Holy Spirit is actually the spiritual presence of the Father and the Son, but not in their bodily form.

    The Bible teaches that there is only ONE Lord (Ephesians 4:5).

    The Bible teaches that there is only ONE Spirit (Ephesians 4:4).

    Who is the one Lord and the one Spirit? Here is the answer from 2 Corinthians 3:17.

    “Now the [one] Lord is that [one] Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

    Look at how the same truth is brought out in the following texts:

    • “Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (John 14:19, 20)
    • “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one.” (John 17:23)

    Do you see? It is the Father in Jesus, and Jesus in us. They are with us in spirit form, not in bodily form. This is why the presence of them with us is called the Holy Spirit.

    Satan wants to take two precious things from you. One is the knowledge of the love of God and His Son. That love which was so wonderfully demonstrated when God gave His Son to die for men (1 John 4:9). The other is the knowledge of the indwelling presence of God and His Son. Without these, what are we left with? Nothing. We are orphans, lost people seeking to find a way to be saved; trying to face life, but helpless and lost.

    Thank God for the gospel of His Son! Thank God for a full and perfect salvation. What a joy to know that I have been redeemed, not with gold or silver, but by the precious life-blood of the only begotten Son of the great God of the universe. I am somebody. I am worth something. How wonderful to know that my friends and constant companions are this same God and His Son! This gives me courage and confidence. This makes me know that I am safe, even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. This makes me know that there is nothing too hard for me to face. God lives with me and in me. I have an abiding Friend who will never let me down.

    My dear friend, I invite you now, to abandon this false doctrine of the Trinity. Accept the truth about God and His Son. Give your life to them forever and determine that from now on you will serve them and walk with them until the day when we shall meet them face to face.

    The Sunday has long usurped its place in the Christian world. And this elevation of the day of the sun to the honors of the Sabbath of the Lord, has been attended with the most disastrous consequences to the churches. Not willing to acknowledge that the Roman power has authority "to command holy days under sin," and not willing to reform their practice and exchange popular tradition for the commandment of God, they have been reduced to the greatest straits in their vain efforts to uphold Sunday by the Scriptures. To do this they have not only done violence to the language of the commandment, but, again, to justify this, they have adopted rules of interpretation which make the Bible a plaything for their fancies, and cause it to be scorned by many thinking men. If, in as plain a matter as  law , words may be made to mean the opposite of what they say, and applied to anything except that of which they speak, what is the value of the Bible as a revelation? {ST Dec 22, 1881 EJ Waggoner}

    The same process that is used to exalt Sunday is used to exalt the Trinity; doing violence to the words so that Father and Son no longer mean Father and Son.

    • The Trinity doctrine, like Sunday observance, is not explicitly stated in Scripture.
    • The Trinity doctrine, like Sunday observance, was introduced in the centuries after the first apostles.
    • The Trinity doctrine, like Sunday observance, confuses righteousness by faith. The Trinity takes away the relational access to God and Sunday focuses on the event of the resurrection rather than the relationship we enter into on the Sabbath.
    • The Trinity doctrine, like Sunday observance, is the heart and soul of Catholic faith.
    • The Trinity doctrine, like Sunday observance, was rejected by our pioneers.


    Nimrod revealed

    The Bible states…

    Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD.” The centers of his kingdom were BabylonErechAkkad and Calneh in Shinar (Genesis 10:8-10).

    Many consider this to be a positive, complimentary testimony about Nimrod. It is just the opposite! First, click here for a little background study if necessary.

    Cultural Connections in the Ancient Near East

    In the post-Flood genealogical records of Genesis 10 we note that the sons of Ham were: CushMizraimPut and Canaan. Mizraim became the Egyptians. No one is sure where Put went to live. And it is obvious who the Canaanites were. Cush lived in the “land of Shinar” which most scholars consider to be Sumer. There developed the first civilization after the Flood. The sons of Shem-the Semites-were also mixed, to some extent, with the Sumerians.

    We suggest that Sumerian Kish, the first city established in Mesopotamia after the Flood, took its name from the man known in the Bible as Cush.

    The first kingdom established after the Flood was Kish, and the name “Kish” appears often on clay tablets.  (The Hebrew name “Cush,” much later, was moved to present-day Ethiopia as migrations took place from Mesopotamia to other places.)

    The Sumerians, very early, developed a religio-politico state which was extremely binding on all who lived in it (except for the rulers, who were a law unto themselves). This system was to influence the Ancient Near East for over 3000 years. Other cultures which followed the Sumerian system were AccadBabylonAssyria, and Persia, which became the basis of Greece and Rome's system of rule. Founded by Cush, the Sumerians were very important historically and Biblically.

    Was “Nimrod” Godly or Evil?

    First, what does the name Nimrod mean? It comes from the Hebrew verb marad, meaning “rebel.” Adding an “n” before the “m” it becomes an infinitive construct, “Nimrod.” (see Kautzsch 1910: 137 2b, also BDB 1962: 597). The meaning then is “The Rebel.” Thus “Nimrod” may not be the character's name at all. It is more likely a derisive term of a type, a representative, of a system that is epitomized in rebellion against the Creator, the one true God. Rebellion began soon after the Flood as civilizations were restored. At that time this person became very prominent. In Genesis 10:8-11 we learn that “Nimrod” established a kingdom. After the Flood there was, at some point, a breakaway from YHWH. Only eight people descended from the Ark. Those people worshipped YHWH. But at some point an influential person became opposed to YHWH and gathered others to his side. I suggest that Nimrod is the one who did it. Cain had done similarly before the Flood, founding a new city and religious system.

    Nimrod was a very significant man in ancient times, the grandson of Ham and great-grandson of Noah. Nimrod started his kingdom at Babylon (Gen. 10:10).

    Often attributed to Nimrod, the Tower of Babel(Gen. 11:19) was not a Jack and the Beanstalk-type of construction, where people were trying to build a structure to get into heaven. Instead, it is best understood as an ancient ziggurat (Assyrian “mountaintop”), as the one pictured at ancient Ur of the ChaldeesAbraham's hometown (Gen. 11:31). A ziggurat was a man-made structure with a temple at its top, built to worship the host of heaven—(ABR file photo)


    Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah-a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny-seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence upon his own power.

    He also said he would be revenged on God, if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach! and that he would avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers! (Ant. I: iv: 2)

    GOD'S PROMISE TO THE WORLD AFTER THE FLOOD: My little girl said that when you see a double rainbow, that means God is double swearing not to send a flood that covers the whole earth!  Such insight in a 6 year old!

    rainbow

    Genesis 9:12-16 (King James Version)

     12And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

     13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

     14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

    15And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

     16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth."

    Ezekiel 1:28 "As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake."


    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DOUBT GOD'S WORD? Terrible apostasy.  Ultimately death. Let's choose to believe and receive God's promises.

    Ancient origin

    Most reference books say that the name “Easter” derived from the Eastre, the Teutonic goddess of Spring. Although this relationship exists, in reality, the origin of the name and the goddess are far more ancient - going all the way back to the Tower of Babel. The origin begins not long after the biblical Flood.

    The Flood was a divine judgment sent on mankind after evil had become all pervasive and all people everywhere were totally unresponsive to God. The Bible says that "the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually" (Genesis 6:5, NKJV). It is not difficult to imagine that life must have been almost unbearable at this time in history. God gave humankind a second chance by preserving the righteous man Noah and his family (a total of 8 people).

    After the Flood, Noah had a talented, but evil, great-grandson named Nimrod (Genesis 10:6-10) who rebelled greatly against God. The Bible says that he was “a mighty one”[1] Jewish tradition indicates that Nimrod was a tyrant "who made all of the people rebellious against God."[2] It is evident from history that Nimrod was not only a political leader, but also the lead priest of a form of occultic worship.[3]

    King Nimrod, Queen Semiramis (Easter), and Tammuz (the “reincarnated” Nimrod)

    Nimrod built and organized major cities. The Bible notes that these included BabelAsshurNineveh and Calah (Genesis 10:10-12). If you know anything about ancient history, the mention of these places may send shivers up your spine. For these were cities of great, almost unimaginable practices and perversion.

    When Nimrod eventually died, the Babylonian mystery religion in which he figured prominently continued on. His wife Queen Semiramis saw to that. Once he was dead, she deified him as the Sun-god. In various cultures he later became known as Baal, the Great Life Giver, the god of fire, Baalim, Bel, Molech, etc.

    “Later, when this adulterous and idolatrous woman gave birth to an illegitimate son, she claimed that this son, Tammuz by name, was Nimrod reborn.”[4] Semiramis “claimed that her son was supernaturally conceived [no human father] and that he was the promised seed, the 'savior'” - promised by God in Genesis 3:15. “However, not only was the child worshipped, but the woman, the MOTHER, was also worshipped as much (or more) than the son!”[5] Nimrod deified as the god of the sun and father of creation. Semiramis became the goddess of the moon, fertility, etc.

    "In the old fables of the Mystery cults, their 'savior' Tammuz, was worshipped with various rites at the Spring season. According to the legends, after he was slain [killed by a wild boar], he went into the underworld. But through the weeping of his mother… he mystically revived in the springing forth of the vegetation - in Spring! Each year a spring festival dramatically represented this supposed 'resurrection' from the underworld.[6]

    Thus, a terrible false religion developed with its sun and moon worship, priests, astrology, demonic worship, worship of stars associated with their gods, idolatry, mysterious rites, human sacrifice, and more. Frankly, the practices which went on were so horrible that it is not fitting for me to speak of them here.

    It was at Nimrod's city of Babel that a towering structure was first built in defiance of God as part of their Satanic religion. Archaeological evidence indicates that this was a spectacular pyramid-shaped structure (ziggurat). The Bible tells us that at this time there was only one language in the world and that most of the world's population centered in this area and participated in this religion. It was evident to God that all mankind would soon degenerate into a level of evil that would parallel that of the pre-Flood world. For humanity's sake, something had to be done to slow and frustrate this organization of an evil one world, tyrannical government.

    God confused their language, so that they could not understand each other (Genesis 11:7). (This is the ultimate source of the world's many languages.) As a result, many people moved away from the area in groups according to their particular new language. Most, if not all, of these people carried their evil Sun-God-based religion with them. They continued to worship the stars and practice all the other ungodly rituals of their religion. Some also continued to build pyramids reminiscent of the Tower of Babel as part of this mystery religion. Today, we can still find remnants of these throughout the world (e.g., Iraq, South America, Central America, Egypt, Burma).

    Babel was the origin of an idolatrous system that swept the world. The Bible says of her, “Babylon… the nations drank her wine; Therefore the nations are deranged” (Jeremiah 51:7). The Bible often speaks of the Satanic religions which came from her. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus "witnessed the Mystery religion and its rites in numerous countries and mentions how Babylon was the primeval source from which ALL systems of idolatry flowed.[7] Austen Layard said “that we have the united testimony of sacred and profane history that idolatry originated in the area of Babylonia - the most ancient of religious systems.”[8]

    Basically, almost every vile, profane and idolatrous practice you can think of originated at Babel with Queen Semiramis, the Mother Goddess andNimrod. As the people scattered from Babel with their different languages, they, of course, used different names for Nimrod (Tammuz) and Semiramis. Some called the Mother Goddess “ISHTAR” (originally pronounced “Easter”).[9] In other lands, she was called Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, and Eastre. Other names for Semiramis, the Mother Goddess include: Wife of Baal, Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth, and Queen of Heaven.[10]The Mother goddess was frequently worshipped as the goddess of fertility - and as a sort of Mother Nature and goddess of Spring and sexual love and birth. She was also worshipped as a mediator between god and man. Sexual orgies and temple prostitutes were often used in her worship and in attempting to gain her favor.

      One of the most important facts recorded in Gen. 10 is the foundation of the earliest monarchy in Babylonia by Nimrod the grandson of Ham (6, 8, 10). The early Babylonian empire was thus Hamitic, and a cognate race with the early inhabitants of Arabia and of Ethiopia. (See ACCAD.) Author: Matthew G. Easton, edited by Paul S. Taylor.

      The King of Babylon

      The King of Babylon here represents Satan. The usurper prince who has instigated and guided all the confusion and warfare against God and His people. It was the dragon (satan) who gave his power to the beast. It was satan who filled Babylon with his foul spirits (Rev. 18:2) Yet Babylon, that golden city has ceased, cast down, in Revelation 18. For a 1000 years Satan, the true king of Babylon, is left to wonder to and fro in the desolate earth. Now deprived of his power and left to contemplate the part he has acted since he first rebelled against God.

      Satan instigated others to rebel and bound them together in a confederacy to do all the evil possible to man, as a means of striking against God. In anger he and his fallen angels stalked the earth persecuting and harassing the populations of the world.

      After the flood, Satan, through Nimrod the great-grandson of Noah, from days of old still works today (2011) in "Modern Times" through false religions and gods. Satan is just about to start his 1000 years of jail-time, before he is destroyed forever. He wants to take as many down with him as possible. Satan has plotted to be worshiped from Heaven to now. Please, don't be one of the ones who join in worshiping him in the popular pagan Trinity strange god of today.


      Since Julias Caesar, the emperors of Rome have also been the popes (fathers) of the pagan religion of ancient Babylon, which is the mother of all false religions. The emperors learned to control people by becoming the spiritual rulers. This  Bible prophecy points to the next Pope after Pope Benedict XVI as the Antichrist, the man of perdition, the lawless one who deceives the whole world (2 Thess. 2:1-9)

      On September 25, 2008, all 193 recognized nations of the world, including the Vatican, agreed at the United Nations in New York to form a one world government over the next seven years by the year 2015. The agreement, designated the Millennium Development Plan, can be examined at the official web site of the United Nations - www.un.org This event was extremely significant because it fulfilled the Bible prophecy in Daniel 9:27 about the seven year world peace treaty, and reveals that we are living in the tribulation at the end of the world (Rev. 7:15) . The Lord Jesus Christ referred to this period of time as “the beginning of birth pains” (Matt. 24:8 , Mark 13:8 ).

      I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.” John 14:29 

      Many passages in the Bible tell us that Jesus will come like a thief in the night to those who are asleep, but that we should be awake and aware of the signs of the second coming of Jesus and not be unaware like those who are asleep (I Thess. 5:1-8Matt. 24:43 Luke 12:39 , Matt. 24:32-33) . There are numerous signs occurring, accurately fulfilling Bible prophecies and warning that we are in the tribulation period. The power of the truth is holding back the Antichrist from coming out in the open. However, according to the Bible, 3 ½ years after the one world government agreement was made, the power of the truth will be broken and the Antichrist will rule with a worldwide genocide (Daniel 12:7). 

      Although the millennium development goals of the United Nations appear on the outside to be humanitarian objectives, closer examination reveals they actually have at their core the same motives as the Axis powers of World War II - world domination, depopulation, and slavery of the human race. The United Nations World Food Program is meant to seize and control the world food supply, the Educational Program is to indoctrinate the global population, the Medical Program is to coerce doctors and force abortion and genocide through vaccinations and innoculations, and their goal to end world hunger and disease and to acheive a sustainable environment is planned through depopulation.  How it fulfills Bible prophecies, what the Bible says will happen, and how to stand firm through what is coming. There are many events occuring that work together and that shows how all the puzzle pieces fit together in fulfillment of Bible prophecies. 

      By definition in the Bible, an antichrist is someone who either denies that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for the sins of the world, or claims the sacrifice of Jesus is not sufficient for salvation, and they deny Jesus Christ really and truly died, as the Son of God (I John 2:22I John 4:32 John 1:72 Peter 2:1Jude 1:4). Although there are many antichrists, the Bible identifies one person as the Antichrist. 1 John 2:18 says, “Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come.” The Bible says the Antichrist will speak boastfully, slander Christ and the Christians, declare himself to be God, and wage war against the saints. (Dan. 7:20-27Rev 13:5-8). The Pope is the spiritual and political emperor of the Roman empire and is considered to be above God in the Roman Catholic Church. Article 100 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church claims the Pope has sovereign authority and lordship over the Bible. That implies the Bible does not have authority over the Pope! The Catholic Catechism clearly denies God, the Father of Jesus and puts the Pope in that place instead. Catholicism also denies the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Jesus once for all the sins of mankind, and claims to command Him to come out of Heaven repeatedly to suffer and die in their ritual called the Mass. They ignore the power of His resurrection and claim that they literally eat His body and drink His blood. They use crucifixes to claim their power to crucify Christ, and they insist that He is a piece of bread that they keep in a box. They hold up a piece of bread in a monstrance that is a symbol of the pagan sun god and insist that people worship it. The Roman Catholic Mass is a satanic mockery of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world! In the fourth century A.D., the Roman emperor Constantine started Catholicism when he merely changed the names of the pagan gods and pagan festivals of Rome to Christian names in order to regain control of the empire. The Roman Catholic popes are the high priests (Pontifex Maximus) of the ancient Babylonian religion of Nimrod. When Christ returns He will defeat Satan (who is figuratively called Nimrod or the Assyrian) at the battle of Armageddon as foretold in Micah 5:4-6. 

      Isaiah 10:5 “Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger, in whose hand is the club of my wrath! “ Isaiah 14:25 “I will crush the Assyrian in my land; on my mountains I will trample him down. His yoke will be taken from my people, and his burden removed from their shoulders." 2 Chronicles 32:21 “And the LORD sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the leaders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king.” 

      This passage in Revelation 17 explains that the seven heads of the dragon and the beast are also seven hills and seven kings. At the time Revelation was written, five had fallen, one was currently in power, and one was yet to come. This identifies the heads of the dragon as the Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Mede-Persian, Greek, Roman, and Ottoman Empires. The seven crowns signify that the heads had authority as empires. The eighth king is the beast out of the sea (abyss), is a returning head of the dragon, and is led by the Antichrist who reigns as emperor through the beast. The authority of the beast is divided between ten simultaneous rulers as revealed by the ten crowns on the ten horns (Revelation 17:12). The fourth beast in Daniel 7 also had ten horns, indicating that the beast from the sea is led by the returning Roman Empire, which was fatally wounded but healed. (Rev. 13:313:12). Both the dragon and the beast are worshiped, and both represent Satan‘s kingdom on Earth. The beast from the abyss is the one world empire of Satan, which was (at the tower of Babel), then was not, and now has come again. 

      All 193 nations of the world are fully represented in the United Nations except the Vatican City State, which is currently an observing member. The UN Security Council, which claims authority over the entire world, has ten temporary heads which each serve as president for one month. This fulfills the prophecy of the beast having ten horns that each reign with the beast for one hour (Revelation 17:12-14). According to the Bible, when the Vatican City State becomes a full member of the UN in the middle of the seven year treaty, the pope will displace three of the alternating presidents (Daniel 7:24) and declare himself to be God ( 2 Thess. 2:4). The current President of the UN General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, represents Nicaragua, but is a Roman Catholic priest. Until recently, the supreme world court of the UN was called the Roman International Court of Justice. The Roman Empire changes the names of its governing bodies and institutions whenever politically necessary, but it still exists in its original form. The UN is keeping a giant statue from Italy of mother and child in storage in New York with plans to set it up in 2013. This statue will likely be the idol of the Abomination of Desolation spoken of in the Bible. 


      MYSTERY BABYLON, THE MOTHER OF FALSE RELIGIONS 

      There is one more key player in Satan’s kingdom that needs to be identified - the prostitute that rides the beast. 

      Rev. 17:3-6 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. 

      Revelation 17 refers to the prostitute as a city in whose hand is a cup of abominations, that rules over the kings of the Earth, and that has killed the saints. What city has claimed to be the keeper of the sacred chalice of blood, rules over the kings of the Earth, and has killed more saints than the Vatican City? How often we have heard of Roman Catholicism claiming to be the keeper of the Holy Grail and how they claim to command Christ to come out of Heaven and then sacrifice Him over and over, and claim to drink His literal blood from the chalice. For more information on the history of how Roman Catholicism has persecuted, tortured, and martyred countless Christians for their faith in Jesus Christ, read Foxe's Book of Martyrs

      The Vatican City Center in Rome includes the Circus of Nero, where countless Christians were martyred, crucified, and burned. History says the Apostle Peter was crucified upside down in St. Peter’s Square near the Circus of Nero by Nero in AD 64-67. An obelisk from Egypt stands in St. Peters Square in the area where He was said to have been martyred. Multitudes of Christians and others were tortured and killed by the Roman Religious Empire during the Early Church, the Dark Ages, the Protestant Reformation, and the Holocaust. Dave Hunt made an excellent video on this subject called “A Woman Rides The Beast”

      Revelation 6:9-11 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?" Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed. 

      THE FALSE RELIGIONS OF SATAN 

      How did the Vatican City inherit the title of Babylon the Great? Revelation 17:5 explains the origin of all false religions on Earth. Babylon was the mother of all false religions and was the first empire after the great flood to practice emperor worship, mystery religion, astrology, fire worship, witchcraft, human sacrifice to burn conscience, worship of multiple pagan gods and goddesses, and pyramid building. 

      All the false religions of the world originated in ancient Babylon. After the great flood, in which Noah and his family were spared, Noah’s great-grandson Nimrod ruled over Mesopotamia from Babylon. Knowledgeable of the false religions before the flood and inspired by Satan, Nimrodbuilt the Tower of Babel (a ziggurat pyramid), for the glory of man. God confounded the language of the people, causing them to scatter throughout the world, and they took the religion of Babylon with them. Pyramids and ziggurats throughout the world were modeled after theTower of Babel, as was the current European Union headquarters building

      The religion of Babylon was a counterfeit of the true worship of YHWH (aka the LORD God Almighty). Babylon had a trinity of gods which was a counterfeit of the Triunity of YHWH . The LORD God is one God, but is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Babylonians were polytheistic. Their primary gods were the father god (the emperor Nimrod), the mother goddess of the moon (his wife Semiramis), and the reincarnated sun god (Tammuz, the son of Semiramis). Tammuz was a counterfeit of the Messiah that was prophesied to Adam and Eve would come to sacrifice Himself for the sins of the world. Jesus and the Bible warned us that many false teachers, false prophets, and false Christs would come to deceive even the elect if that were possible. This is particularly true as we approach the end of this age (Matthew 24:242 Peter 2:1. The Bible specifically warns us of a particular antichrist (1 John 2:18) and a particular false prophet (Revelation 19:20) at the end of the age. As we approach the end, we see many of these false leaders being promoted through the New World Order controlled mass media and music industry. They are promoted as idols to be worshiped in place of God, and are made to look humanitarian although they have self-serving motives. 

      The Babylonians had many symbols which were also used in other ancient religions and are seen throughout society today; including, the crescent moon, the sun, various stars, the eye of Horus, obelisks, and various male-female icons. Priests were celibate and cut their hair in circular tonsures representing the sun god. There were temple prostitutes called nuns for the priests. Confessionals were used to get information, and to track and control the people. Nimrod wore a dagon fish hat like the Pope does now. Babylon had statues of winged lions, and of Semiramis who was called the Holy Mother of God and the Queen of Heaven. In Mesopotamia, cities also had their own gods and goddesses with temples dedicated to them. The city of Ur in Chaldea, where Abraham was born, had a temple of the moon goddess. 

      THE SEAT OF BABYLON MOVES TO EUROPE 

      Nebuchadnezzar restored Nimrod’s Tower of Babel in Babylonia, as described by the historian Herodotus. When the Mede-Persians conquered Babylon hundreds of years before Christ, the priests of Babylon escaped to Pergamum in Asia Minor. With them, the Babylonian religion was transferred to the temple of Zeus in Pergamum, which was called the throne of Satan. A black rock of the moon goddess was carried with them and set up. 

      Revelation 2:12-13 "To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live—where Satan has his throne.” 

      In the second century B.C. the high priesthood of the Babylonian religion moved from Pergamum to Rome. Julias Caesar became the first emperor of Rome to also be the Pontifex Maximus of the Babylonian religion. When the worship of the Babylonian mother goddess (now named Cybele) was moved to Rome, what actually was moved was a black stone. After Jesus Christ came, the spread of Christianity throughout the Roman empire weakened the emperor’s power over people. For that reason, in the fourth century A.D, the Emperor Constantine changed the names of the gods of Rome to Christian names in an effort to control Christianity. 

      The temple of Cybele in Rome was closed in the fifth century A.D., and the black stone of the moon goddess was relocated to Mecca in Saudi Arabia in an effort to maintain control over the southern part of the empire. The name of the moon goddess was changed to Alilah, which was later shortened to Allah. The crescent moon symbol remained an important part of the worship of Allah the moon god. Contrary to what Islam claims, Abraham was not a pagan worshiper of the moon rock, and never traveled to Mecca. Approximately 2000 years before Christ, while Abraham was living in Canaan and Ishmael was still a young teenager, Ishmael and his mother Hagar were sent away from Abraham’s territory (Genesis 21). 

      Genesis 21:8-10 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, and she said to Abraham, "Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac." 

      THE KINGS OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH 

      Daniel chapter 11 prophesied about the struggle between the kings of the north and south. In Daniel 2:33, the statue representing the empires foretold in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream had feet made of iron and clay. Because of this mixture, the kingdom is weak. The king of the north is the Roman northern arm of the Babylonian religion and the king of the south is the Arab southern arm of the same religion. The two empires of the same Luciferian Babylonian religion battled for control of Jerusalem, which is where the throne of the LORD’s Kingdom is on Earth. Since Satan wants to control God’s throne, he strives to control Jerusalem. 


      CONTROLLING THE HEADS OF THE DRAGON 

      In order to gain control of the south, the king of the north gave a daughter in marriage to the king of the south (Daniel 11:17). Mohammed’s first wife, Khadija, was from a wealthy Catholic family and had been a nun. She hired Mohammed (a Pagan idolater in Mecca) to work in her business, and then married him as her third husband. The combination of the pagan Babylonian moon goddess religion of Mecca with the pagan Roman Catholic Babylonian sun god religion resulted in the religion of Islam. Islam includes the worship of the black stone, the symbol of the crescent moon (counterpart of the Catholic ankh), the veneration of the immaculate mother goddess, prayers using beads and bells, kissing relics, and the clothes of nuns and priests. The Catholic monstrance represents the sun god and the Islamic crescent moon represents the moon goddess of the same religion. The third sura of the Quran teaches the immaculate birth and sinless life of the holy mother (a teaching that came from Babylon and Rome). Catholicism accepts Muslims as being saved because of their monotheistic claims (paragraph 841 of the Catechism). Mohammed commanded the people of Mecca to worship only the moon god Allah, because claiming monotheism was part of Rome’s strategy to overthrow Christianity. However, Rome still practices praying to many idols. Muslims pray to a stone idol in Mecca and are commanded to make a pilgrimage to walk around the stone and kiss it. Islam forced itself on the Arabs just as Catholicism forced itself on Europe. Although both religions claim to include Jesus and the Bible, both religions reject the authority of Jesus and the Bible, and oppose reading the Bible. Both religions also deny the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for salvation. The crusades that resulted in battles over Jerusalem between these two arms of Babylonian religion fulfilled Bible prophecies in Daniel chapter 11. Walter Veith has an excellent video entitled the Islamic-Catholic Connection in his Total Onslaught series. 

      CONTROLLING JERUSALEM 

      Catholicism has again gained the upper hand as the ruler of Jerusalem. The six pointed star symbol on the flag of Israel is an ancient occult symbol. The star, which is commonly called the Star of David (or the Mogan David), was put on the Israeli flag by the Rothschilds, who are bankers and work for the Vatican. The name Rothschild, meaning “Red Shield”, was derived from the commonly used occult star that hung on the door of the house of the first Rothschilds. The Rothschilds have manipulated empires since the 1700s and have gained control of the wealth of the world. They manage the money for the Vatican and control all sides of conflicts throughout the world for their own profit. They manage wars and make the Vatican appear as the answer for the world’s problems. They also crash economies by manufacturing money to loan to governments, causing inflation and dependency, and then withdrawing money, causing an extreme shortage. Promoting their agenda through mass media (which they own and control), they distract people from learning the truth. They created the Illuminati, and control the Freemasons, the Shriners, and other secret societies. They created and own the Federal Reserve of the United States, the national banks of Europe, and all money supplies throughout the world. For this reason, the dollar bill in the USA has the Eye of Horus (aka the Eye of Lucifer), and also the six-pointed Star of Saturn. A handful of people at the top of Satan’s hierarchy control the wealth of the world. In the early 1900s they bought Palestine in order to control Jerusalem, and gave it to Great Britain which they already controlled. 

      THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD 

      Daniel 11:20 "His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. 

      The founder of the Rothschild dynasty, a German named Mayer Amschel Bauer, with assistance from Adam Weishaupt (a Catholic Jesuit priest), created the Illuminati in 1776 and infiltrated and reorganized the Freemasons. They used the Jewish Talmud, a book of Jewish traditions and antichrist principles, to establish control. He changed his family name to Rothschild to represent the red Star of Saturn that hung on his family’s door, and which was a common symbol among the Khazar Germans who called themselves Jews. His ambitions are the reason the same six pointed star is on the Israeli flag. The Rothschild family of bankers loaned money to governments in Europe, and profited from both sides of wars. They expanded to create national banks throughout Europe and the world. They were instrumental in the Freemason design of Washington D.C., and created the privately owned central banks of the USA for the purpose of controlling the world. In the 1970s, John Todd gave some excellent lectures on the Illuminati but has since vanished. 

      George Washington fired the French Freemason, Pierre Charles L'Enfante, that designed Washington D.C. in 1791, because he demolished a prominent citizen’s house to build an occult design. The Rothschild’s first US central bank was disbanded by Andrew Jackson, whose picture is now on the $20 bill. Their second central bank was defeated by Abraham Lincoln, whose picture is now on the $5 bill. Together with J.P. Morgan and the Rockefellers, who are also Rothschild family members, they created their current Federal Reserve central bank of the USA in 1913. They printed the eye of Lucifer and the Star of Saturn on the back of their one dollar bills, symbolizing the Illuminati power. The owl representing Molech is also carefully hidden on the one dollar bill. John F. Kennedy planned to dispose of the privately owned and controlled Federal Reserve. JFK signed executive order 11110 which authorized the US Treasury to issue silver certificates backed by silver in order to run the federal government without loans from the international bankers that own the federal reserve, but was assasinated five months later. 

      After creating the Federal Reserve, they bought strategically chosen newspapers in order to control the mass media. They funded Hitler (who was a Rothschild) during WWII, and then established the United Nations. Today, the Rothschilds own all the major banks, money supplies, corporations, mass media, Wall Street, politicians, and secret societies worldwide. Although originally from Germany, with ties to the Jesuit priests of the Roman Catholic church, they are deceptively advertised as being Jews but are a part of the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:93:9). They work for and manage the money for the Vatican and bow to the Pope. 

      THE NEW WORLD ORDER 

      Genesis 3:4-5 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." 

      Since the beginning, Satan (aka Lucifer) rebelled against God to establish himself as the supreme being. When Satan rebelled, he was cast out of Heaven to Earth. Through deceit, manipulation, and control of money systems, he gained control over the leaders of the world. People are made in the image of God, and while submitted to God they are given authority over the angels and creation To gain control, Satan needed people to follow him in rebellion. Convincing them that he had secret knowledge, he lied and persuaded them to believe that God is dishonest and that His rules were enslaving them. By seducing them to rebel, Satan enslaved the human race. If he can keep you from learning and believing the truth of God, he can get you to believe his lies and make you his slave. In return for worship and obedience to Satan, he offers illusions of temporary pleasures, which cannot satisfy and leads to eternal death. 

      For those seeking temporal power, status, and pleasures, there are many secret societies working for the Vatican. One of the most exclusive and prestigious is the Bohemian Grove, which includes the most powerful men in the world; including, U.S. presidents, other world leaders, and heads of media, television, movies, corporations, banks, militaries, military equipment producers, oil companies, etc. Meeting every year at the Bohemian Grove, they practice mock or real human sacrifice to Moloch, the god of the underworld. The ceremony of Moloch worship at the Bohemian Grove was successfully videotaped by Alex Jones. They also pray to the Catholic patron saint of silence, St John of Nepomek. In these secret societies, members vow upon penalty of torture and death to never disclose the truth. These cults are also called mystery religions because the plans of Satan to create a one world government and religion are hidden even from members at lower ranks. This international network of world leaders works together to create wars, international financial crisis, uprisings, food shortages, and mass media propaganda to promote their agenda. Their mission is to create a one world government, economy, currency, educational system, media, and religion controlled by Satan. 

      The Knights Templars of Catholicism developed into the Freemasons. Many of the world’s leaders are top ranking Freemasons. Freemasonry is a secret society of the Catholic Church and is controlled by the Rothschilds. When a Freemason reaches the 32nd degree, they consciously worship Lucifer and are eligible to become a Shriner. In Freemasonry, a Bible is placed on their altars. When they become Shriners, the Bible is removed and a Quran is used. Upon becoming a Shriner, they are given a document of protection for their travels which bears the crescent moon. This is the same protection that was given to the Knights Templars and the Muslim Assassins. Even though the Shriners use the Quran in their rituals and display the symbol of the crescent moon, they are controlled by the Vatican. This confirms that Catholicism and Islam are two branches of the same Luciferian religion of ancient Babylon. These false religions and secret societies use an outward facade of good works to hide a sinister lifestyle. Giuseppe Mazzini, a top Freemason and predecessor of Albert Pike, went on to create the Mafia in the 1800s. 

      Luke 10:18 Jesus replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.“ Some claim that the black rock of Mecca that Muslims bow to is a meteorite that fell from Heaven. A meteorite falling to Earth would resemble lightning. Muslims are commanded to travel to Mecca to march around and kiss the black stone in worship. By doing so, they are actually worshipping Satan. The worship of Moloch in secret orders such as the Bohemian Grove is also a part of the Satanic worship of ancient Babylon. The symbols of Babylon can be seen in the logos of corporations and governments throughout the world. Satan works in secret and much of what he does is hidden in plain view. The Babylonian symbol of the obelisk is seen in Washington D.C., the Vatican in Rome, and Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Washington D.C. was designed by a French Freemason after the Rothschilds created the Illuminati and infiltrated the Freemasons. The currencies of the world are not owned and controlled by the governments, but by the Rothschilds working for the Vatican. The New World Order operates on the premise that if you control the money, you control the world. For that reason, their plan is to destroy the international economy and establish a one world currency that tracks everyone and facilitates the slavery of the human race. 

      There are many organizations that have been created for the purpose of uniting the worldwide effort to establish the one world empire of the antichrist. Among them are the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations. The Council on Foreign Relations is the organization that resulted when the Rothschilds took over the newsmedia right after creating the Federal Reserve. The CFR works to control the mass media and organize efforts to hide the plans of the New World Order and control the opinions and reactions of the public. The Federal Reserve is privately owned by the international bankers working for the vatican and is not federal at all. A privately owned national currency is illegal under the U.S. Constitution, but the Rothschilds, along with their family members the Rockefellars and J.P. Morgan, bribed Woodrow Wilson to get it passed through Congress. The Rothschilds now own all the currencies throughout the world and can collapse the international economy when the time comes. When the one world agreement was made at the United Nations on September 25, 2008, by all nations, the authority of individual nations officially ceased, but the New World Order is keeping this silent until they have everything set in place to administer the mark of the beast and declare the pope as emperor of the world. 

      ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT 

      Revelation 12:1-4 A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.

      The description of the woman with sun, moon, and stars is similar to the vision of Joseph given in Genesis 37:9 and shows the woman to represent Israel. Lucifer has been trying to establish a one world government and religion on Earth ever since his banishment from Heaven. Using many empires, he has tried to control the Garden of Eden, Jerusalem, and the world. After the flood in the days of Noah, Nimrod attempted to build a tower to Heaven in Babel to unite the world in rebellion to God, but God confused their language and scattered them throughout the world. When Jesus was born into the world, Satan tried to kill Him through King Herod of Rome to prevent the sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of the world, but Mary and Joseph were given a place in the desert for three and a half years to be protected. Later, through Hitler, Satan tried to annihilate the people of Israel in order to establish his own millenium reign, but again was unsuccessful because the Christians helped the Jews. Because that didn't work, the dragon is enraged and is plotting to establish his throne by eliminating the true Christians (Revelation 12). The worldwide persecution of Christians is the sign that Jesus is about to return (Matt. 24:9). The United Nations will implement a worldwide genocide, and even plans to reestablish the Garden of Eden without God. (see www.un.org

      Similar tactics used in WWII are being used again, but the plan is more developed. Hitler, who was a pawn of Rome, was a Catholic in good standing when he died. His plan was called the Millennium Reign (or Third Reich) and the UN plan is called the Millennium Development. A great deception called World Hunger Relief, aka From Hunger To Hope, is presented as hope for the world. Demonstrations are organized to raise support of this plan, which appears to help those in poverty but is a plan of mass genocide. By creating the problem of international economic crisis and publicizing it through their media, the New World Order promotes their own solution to the problem. This is the strong delusion talked about in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. Satan’s scheme to counterfeit God’s Kingdom includes the Abomination of Desolation and the Mark of the Beast. But Jesus will return to defeat Satan and set up Christ’s Kingdom on Earth for a thousand years. 

      MARTIAL LAW 

      Martial law provisions in the USA were passed without the public's awareness throughout the Clinton, Bush, and other administrations. When the president declares martial law, the constitution is disposed of, and the federal government seizes all roads, airlines, waterways, utilities, food supplies, state and local offices, etc., and unduly detains citizens to search, seize, imprison, send to work camps, and execute. Under the UN, this will happen globally. Barak Obama is a puppet that was appointed to legalize fullterm abortion, submit the USA to the UN, and encourage Muslim hostility against the Bible and Christians. Fullterm abortion will be legalized to justify worldwide genocide when the international economy is destroyed. 

      Martial laws were already put in place when Hitler took office in Germany, just as in the US now. Hitler’s Gestapo burned down a government building one month after he took office so he could declare a national emergency and become dictator. Barak Obama is submitting the US to the UN and pushing their World Food Programme, which gives the UN control of the world‘s food supply and will authorize them to carry outgenocide

       based on their propaganda that there is not enough food and too many people. 

      Under the FEMA plan called REX 84
      , over 800 known concentration camps are already set up around the USA. Large numbers of coffins, cremation bags, and guillotines have also been distributed by FEMA. The excuse that this is being setup for possible uncontrolled disasters is disinformation, intended to cover up the real sinister plot of enslaving the world. This is in line with the population control agenda of the United Nations which can be seen by typing “population control” into the search engine on their website at: www.un.org There is also a move toward using the fear of a global swine flu epidemic in order to set up the coming takeover of the world and establishment of a one world empire for the antichrist in the vatican. Martial law procedures are being propagated through training seminars supposedly preparing for a swine flu pandemic. Studies have revealed that the swine flu pandemic of 1918 was largely spread through the vaccinations that were supposedly given to protect against it. RFID chip implants are administered through injections as are vaccinations. People are being preprogrammed to willingly submit to the coming worldwide holocaust. 

      Muslim Sharia Law is another form of Martial Law that enforces the worship of Satan and justifies atrocities. Satan is the accuser, the prosecuting attorney, and uses self-righteousness as a cover for evil. Jesus Christ is our defense attorney who, although having no sin, paid the penalty for the sins of everyone Himself so that those who repent and trust in Him are forgiven and cleansed by the LORD God Almighty. No one can condemn those whom the LORD has forgiven. There is peace where people live who have accepted the forgiveness and love of Jesus Christ, but there is chaos and hostility where people try to cover their evil with self-righteous finger pointing. 

      On Nov. 14, 2008, a friend, who has fed the homeless and shared the Gospel for 20 years, was pulled over by four police cars for having too much food in the back of their pickup truck. A few days after that, the pickup was impounded illegally for no cause. There are laws in place to outlaw food stockpiling. The NWO does not want people to have food supplies when they collapse the economy. They will seize all farms and food supplies through martial law. On Nov. 18, 2008, representatives from the United Nations visited a local food bank to observe how food is distributed to the needy. Although the food bank had plenty of food, the officials declared on TV that there was not enough to go around. 

      to As we approach the time when the antichrist destroys the international economy and seizes the world food supply, it is vitally important that Christians feed the needy and help each other for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. As you help others, God will help you. We must pray with people who are struggling with the issues that life is throwing at them. People need to know that God loves them and has eternal hope for them if they trust Him. Those who feed the homeless are aware of God’s economy and how no money changes hands. As ministries give to each other to help the needy, the resources get to the right places. Satan wants people to get greedy and fight each other for limited resources. The mass media programs and brainwashes people to panic, become greedy, to mock the Bible, Jesus, and Christians, and to become violent, but Jesus told us that as the love of most grows cold we must demonstrate His love (Matt. 24:12-13). 

      DEPOPULATION THROUGH VACCINATION 

      The United Nations was created by the Vatican through the Rockefellars which are part of the Rothschilds family. John D. Rockefellar Jr. supplied the land for the UN complex in New York. The UN was created in 1945 as a result of the loss of World War II by the Vatican controlled Germany and Italy. Although Emperor Hirohito of Japan wanted to rule the world at that time and had a treaty with the Vatican through Hitler and Mussolini, these types of tyrannical psychopaths do not tolerate competition from other potential world dominators. These self-absorbed egotistical madmen want to be worshipped as gods through force, fear, and murder. They don't realize that the Lord Jesus Christ will return to defeat them and take His seat as loving Lord of all (Revelation 20:9-11). The Vatican uses their Jesuit Priests and Secret Societies to create chaos, problems, and wars which they hype through their mass media. Then they present the Pope as the answer and advertise him through their mass media. They own and use the media to keep the negative attention pointed elsewhere so they can continue to carry out their secret plans. They cover their secret dark motives with labels and appearances of good intentions. The United Nations was created as plan B by the Vatican for world domination and global depopulation. 

      Eugenics and depopulation were policies being promoted during World War II to the present time. The depopulation leaders suggest that the world population needs to be reduced to only 500 million people from the current six billion. The Bible says in Revelation 6:8 that the antichrist and the beast out of the sea will kill 1/4 of the world's population. Both Germany and Japan used concentration camps to perform live human experiments to develop killing methods through biological and germ warfare. Japan's Unit 731 was especially notorious for the autrocities committed against humanity. They also experimented on entire communities by giving contaminated food and clothes to people, spraying and bombing with diseases, and contaminating water supplies. After World War II, the doctors that performed live dissections and intentionally tortured prisoners were given amnesty by the UN and the USA in return for the findings of their experiments. Emperor Hirohito was honored like a god after all this, and the doctors that committed these autrocities went on to own pharmaceutical companies and work in high offices in government. Green Cross Pharmaceuticals in Japan was owned by one of these doctors and in 1975 was found to be contaminating blood products with Hepatitis C. 

      From the beginning of the UN's creation, depopulation was a major goal. In 1974, Henry Kissinger suggested in an official report (entitled NSSM 200) to the United Nations that their plan for depopulation could be best carried out through vaccinations. This report and the entire Unit 731 autrocities and political immunity of the doctors was kept top secret until the late 1980s. Through an organization called GAVI, the plan that Henry Kissinger outlined is being carried out worldwide. Bill Gates is a major contributor to the UN plan to depopulate through vaccination, which is not surprising since IBM supported Hitler with financial contributions. The 1918 swine flu virus that killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide was spread through vaccinations. In 1976, the mass media spread fear about a swine flu epedemic and 45 million people in the USA were vaccinated. Only one person was reported to die from the flu while almost 30 died from the vaccination and many thousands more were disabled from the vaccine. Innoculations in preschool children has increased dramatically and the mercury in the shots is known to cause autism, brain damage, and death. Other experiments with radiation have been performed on children en masse and resulted in death of the majority of subjects. 

      The current push for mandatory vaccinations and quarantines is the plan of the United Nations to depopulate the world through vaccinations and to dumb people down to prepare them to willingly become slaves through RFID chip implants. RFID chips are used as tracking devices for merchandise, but are being advertised by the antichrist as being useful for monitoring diseases, finding lost people, and giving artificial intelligence. The idea of gaining intelligence through brain implants may be one reason the Bible says some people will receive the mark in their forehead. The chip implants are known to cause cancer and yet are approved by the FDA. The Bible specifically warns against receiving the Mark of the Beast (Revelation 14:11). Right now, mandatory vaccination legislation is being implemented all over the world and RFID chip implants are in storage at hospitals in preparation for use as verification that people have received the mandatory vaccinations. Laws are being passed to quarantine people into concentration camps who refuse the vaccinations, and busses are already manufactured for transporting people to quarantine camps. 

      Since the Vatican already controls all the currencies in the world, the motive they have is complete world domination. According to the report of someone who interviewed David Rockefeller on the motives of the New World Order, David Rockefellar declared that their intention is to use fear to cause everyone to receive an RFID chip implant so that their chip can be turned off if they don't cooperate and obey. It becomes obvious that their plan is to make people unable to buy or sell unless they bow to the one world emperor and his religion and control. Before they can do that, they are working on forcing everyone to receive the RFID chip. and causing some to receive it voluntarily through fear of a global pandemic. 

      THE MARK OF THE BEAST 

      Revelation 13:17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. 

      The mark is something the Bible says is received in the right hand or forehead, and without which no one can buy or sell. It means "right hand" what you "DO" and "forehead" what you think. The mark of the beast is what you THINK and DO. Do you think and do the commandments of God?

      What the MARK OF THE BEAST IS:  It is whether you worship the Trinity and keep Sunday as holy, OR worship the ONE and ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD Of HEAVEN AND KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF THE ROYAL KINGDOM OF GOD. This Includes obeying the 4th commandment, which is to keep the 7th day Holy unto to God as a perpetual sign. God's people will even keep the 7th day Sabbath in Heaven.  


      ONE WORLD RELIGION 

      Satan is the father of lies and false religions, which have the common underlying goal of enslaving people in rebellion against God for the worship of Satan. He is an expert at counterfeiting the truth of God. To recognize a counterfeit you must know the real thing. If he can get you to doubt the truth of God, he can get you to believe his lies and be his slave. One tactic Satan uses to prevent people from learning and believing the truth is to claim possession of special knowledge of secret mysteries. Unlimited illusions and lies are propagated through teachers appearing as authorities. 

      The Vatican created the ecumenical and interfaith movements to unite all religions under Lucifer. In 1986, they organized a one world religion summit in Italy. They are proclaiming that all religions worship the same god, which the informed know to be Lucifer. But the God of the Christians is the LORD God Almighty, YHWH, the Creator of all things. Jesus Christ declared that He is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). Satan’s most deceptive counterfeit religion is Roman Catholicism. In 1993, the United Nations appointed a priest, William Swing, to establish a one world religion. The result was an organization of world religions called the United Religions Initiative. Their web site is at www.URI.org and their connection to the United Nations can be seen at www.uri.org/united_nations . The symbol of the UN is the world inside two olive branches, using the shape of the sun god inside the crescent moon, a common phallic symbol for the Luciferian mystery religion of Babylon. In fulfillment of Bible prophecy, Pope Benedict XVI will set himself up in the United Nations, proclaim himself to be god, and order the massacre of all who refuse to bow to Satan‘s one world religion (2 Thess. 2:4). 

      SATAN’S LIES 

      The number of systematic lies and frauds being promoted all over the world is astronomical. Entire philosophical and religious systems are developed through deception for the intentional purpose of leading people away from the truth, to enslave them to Satan and his one world religion and government. False religions, false sciences, false environmental concerns, intentionally misleading media and government, intentionally brainwashing education and programming, false promises, distractions, behavioral conditioning, and more, are being fed to the masses to fatten them as cows for the slaughter. The Vatican, using the Rothschilds and the Illuminati, owns and controls the mass media, and its occult symbols are seen in the logos of the corporations. They own the money and the corporations and control those working in information dissemination. 

      The entire evolutionary system of belief is founded on fraudulent deceptions of so called fossil finds, which have been manufactured by taking pieces of different skeletons from known animals and humans, putting them with each other, and then manufacturing an entire skeleton and supposed pictures from that. This has developed into a multi-billion dollar industry as the New World Order pays people to make believable hoaxes. People have been led to believe through false education and media that these so called missing link fossils and dinosaur skeletons are actually complete and real. Even the scientific community is often easily fooled because their living depends on these frauds. The carbon datingsystem used to validate these claims is also known to be fraudulent and inaccurate. Contrary to what people are brainwashed to believe, atheism is not science but a religion. It relies on frauds and imaginary speculation which it promotes as truth but is contrary to true science. 

      Global warming is a lucrative business for those who promote its errors. This hoax is a sidetrack to the real issues of sin in the world. While imaginary environmental issues are promoted, the FDA has approved substances for human consumption such as MSG, aspartame, and fluoride, which are known and proven to be poisonous and deadly. It’s swept under the rug by those making money from their use. The FDA has also approved implantable RFID microchips which are being used to track and record every movement of animals. These microchips will soon be used in tracking humans. Hitler’s regime treated humans as cattle, as will the one world government about to be revealed. Owned by the New World Order, the mass media has been hiding the motives and development of the one world government and religion. One world education is another tool of the NWO, being used to program their agenda. 

      The Bible and prayer were removed from American public schools during the presidency of the openly Catholic president John F. Kennedy. Recently, American public schools began promoting witchcraft through using Harry Potter books in the curriculums. Witchcraft practices the worship of nature and prayer and sacrifice to the gods of nature. This is strictly forbidden in the Bible. Wicca and Paganism even go so far as to sacrifice humans to the environment. Christopher Collins (aka John Todd) was a member of the Council of 13 which are the highest witches and working directly for the Rothschilds tell politicians what to do. John Todd became a born again Christian in the early 1970s and exposed the New World Order until he was imprisoned and then mysteriously disappeared. Witchcraft is highly esteemed in satan's false religion because they pray to false gods which are really demons. Witchcraft and Paganism are behind the environmentalist movement which leads to the agenda of depopulation laid out in Agenda 21 and the Georgia Guidestones. But the real motive of satan in depopulating the world is not just sacrificing humans to nature, but to reduce the population of slaves to be more manageable. 

      One deception designed to keep people from reading the Bible is the hype about the Mayan calendar ending in December of 2012. The end of the world is coming, but Satan wants people to believe it has nothing to do with God and he uses this propaganda to steer people away from studying the Bible. He would rather people study New Age religion and believe astrology. According to the Bible, the antichrist will set himself up 3 ½ years after the one world agreement. ????? Since the one world agreement happened on Sept 25, 2008, we can expect the antichrist to set himself up at Easter of 2012. 

      Because of the power of the Gospel in the Bible and the Name of Jesus Christ, many false religions claim the Bible and Jesus Christ as part of their teachings. However, they reject Jesus Christ as Lord and reject the authority of the Bible. Instead, they have their own books that they claim are superior to the Bible and they have teachers that they claim are superior to Jesus Christ. They tell their followers not to read the Bible. Wherever the Bible is there is freedom, but these teachers want to enslave their followers for their own selfish gain. Some false religions have their own Bibles which they have intentionally mistranslated in order to reinforce their own false teachings. Some false religions add extra books to the Bible or take books away from the 66 books of the New Testament and Old Testament. The entire Bible testifies to man's need to repent of sins, and to the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ once for all for the sins of mankind. According to the Bible, God isn't interested in enslaving people through religious rituals and false covers for sin. God wants all people to repent of the wickedness of their hearts and trust in His finished work on the cross of Christ for salvation and forgiveness. 

      Mind control techniques, including the use of trauma, drugs, and hypnosis, have been practiced and experimented with by occult leaders throughout history. The mind control research of Joseph Mengele, one of the Nazi German concentration camp doctors, was continued after world war two by the CIA and Mengele himself. Mind control taught in the false religion of Theosophy, which is an offshoot of Freemasonry, was also used to program people through the books and movie of the Wizard of Oz. By planting fear and hostility, mass media and education are programming and conditioning people to accept the coming new world order, to willingly surrender their freedoms, and to accept the implantable tracking chips. The plan progresses slow enough to prevent objections on a mass scale. Monitoring systems poll acceptance of the agenda of the NWO. Simultaneously, truth is being silenced. The Bible is gradually being censored wherever free speech can still be found. Laws are being passed in the United Nations and the US Congress to prohibit free speech. Satan is desperate to silence the truth. Wherever the Bible is freely read and proclaimed, people live in freedom. Wherever the Bible is outlawed, freedoms are trampled. We need to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ while there is still time so that those who haven’t heard will be able to receive eternal life while they still can. 

      SATAN’S ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE THE TRUTH 

      Rebellion to God resulted in terrible problems in the world. Satan shifts the blame onto God and prevents people from reading the Bible and knowing the truth. Throughout history, numerous attempts have been made to burn, discredit, outlaw, and change the Bible, and to kill those who maintain and proclaim it. Nevertheless, the Bible has been preserved in its original Hebrew and Greek text for thousands of years. The Holy Spirit of God lives in those with faith in Jesus and still reveals the truth. In spite of Satan’s attempts to silence the Bible, the Word of God has been translated into more languages, and more copies have been printed than any other book in history. The printing press was invented to print Bibles and the first book printed on a printing press was the Bible. Wherever the Bible is found there is freedom, but where it is silenced there is tyranny and oppression. God has given anyone who really wants the truth the accurate historical account of how mankind fell into sin, and how He redeems people back to Himself through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for the sins of the world. 

      Some people are saying not to read this document because I didn’t use the King James Version of the Bible. William Tyndale was burned at the stake by the Vatican in 1536 for translating the Bible into English for people to read. The Catholic espionage organization called the Jesuits was formed by Ignatius Loyola just before William Tyndale was betrayed. At the Council of Trent in 1546, the Vatican declared 14 books of the Apocrypha to be part of the Bible although Christians have never accepted them. The assistants of William Tyndale fled to Geneva for protection with John Calvin and finished Tyndale’s Bible in 1560. This Bible (The Geneva Bible) was the first to have chapters and verses, and also had footnotes exposing the Vatican as the Harlot on the Beast and the popes as antichrists. King James was a homosexual who also practiced beastiality and believed in the divine rights of kings. He commissioned the KJV to silence the Geneva Bible. The 1611 KJV followed the Catholic Bishop’s Bible, contained the Apocrypha, and intentionally mistranslated words to give authority to the catholic church. In 1620, the Puritans on the Mayflower had the Geneva Bible and fled persecution from King James. The KJV was the only Bible authorized by King James to be read in his kingdom. Many false religions insist on the King James Bible only. The English is also outdated and difficult to read. When the Puritans came to America, they passed laws establishing schools to ensure that people could read the Bible. All of the early universities in America were theological seminaries. In 1963, under a Roman Catholic president, reading the Bible in American public school classrooms was outlawed. Since then, false religions have been taught while the Bible has been discriminated against. 

      Before the coming worldwide holocaust, the antichrist will use the media to slander and discredit the Bible and Christians. Jesus said to rejoice when you are persecuted and falsely accused for His sake because great is your reward in Heaven (Matt. 5:11-12). One Christian’s YouTube channels were removed several times for reading the Bible on videos. YouTube has been a place to freely share the truth, but is being increasingly pressured by the New World Order to censor the Bible. YouTube condones many videos of pornography and violence, and users who threaten, slander, and curse at others. Meanwhile, Christians who courteously and politely read the Bible are censored. After YouTube received a video protesting their double standard, they officially announced support for Bible reading on videos, but the flagging and removal of Christian videos and channels continued. This validates Bible prophecies foretelling the persecution of Christians and the increase of wickedness before the end of time. 

      Jesus said in John 16:2 ”They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God.” Many people will persecute Christians because they are brainwashed into believing the lies of Satan. They believe the lies because they refuse to love the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12). 

      THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION 

      Daniel 9:27 “He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. " 

      So where and what is the abomination of desolation? It is miraculous that over 2500 years ago Daniel accurately prophesied the world events leading up to Christ’s birth, life, and sacrifice for sins, the crusades, and the events leading up to the return of Jesus. In verse 27, Daniel was told that at the end of the world, the Roman emperor will make an agreement for one seven (7 years), and that in the middle of that seven year agreement an abomination that causes desolation will be set up on a wing of the temple. 

      Satan wants to claim God’s authority by setting himself up in Jerusalem. Since the Jews did not rebuild the temple according to God’s specifications in Ezekiel after their return from Babylonian captivity, Herod built up the temple that Jesus visited. As Jesus prophesied, that temple was torn down by the Romans in A.D. 70. Currently in Jerusalem, there is a Muslim temple called the Dome of the Rock at the site of Herod’s temple. According to Revelation, and many other passages throughout the Bible, Jesus does not need a temple built by human hands (Rev. 21:22Acts 17:24). Both the Dome of the Rock and the UN complex in N.Y. can be considered abominable temples of the false religion of the Antichrist. Since the Antichrist uses the UN as the vehicle through which he will control his one world government and religion, he will reveal himself when he takes his seat as leader of the UN. However, Daniel 11:45 says that he will also pitch his tents in Jerusalem. 

      Daniel 11:45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him. 

      Here in Daniel, the Bible says the Antichrist will pitch his tents in Jerusalem. When Moses led Israel out of Egypt to the promised land, a tent (tabernacle) was constructed and used according to the specifications given to them for meeting with the LORD (Exodus 40). This tabernacle was used for performing the sacrifices and other rituals commanded in the Old Covenant. Since Jesus Christ came and was the fulfillment of what the temple sacrifices pointed to, a temple is no longer necessary. In fulfillment of Bible prophecies, it is likely that the Antichrist in his rebellion to God will set up his own tent in Jerusalem to declare himself as ruler of the world. 

      What is the Abomination of Desolation? An abomination is something sinful, detestable, filthy, rebellious, disgusting, repulsive, and abhorrent. Desolation is the absence of people and can result from many causes. In this case, the abomination is a rebellion of Satan setting himself up and proclaiming himself to be god. The Bible says that an image will also be set up, and those who refuse to worship the image will be killed (Rev. 13:15). Since the image will represent the UN and the pope, it is likely that the statue now kept in storage at the UN of mother and child will be used. Another statue being kept in storage at the UN is a woman on a horse. Whatever the image is, it will represent the religion and government of Satan. It is likely that the black stone of Mecca will be placed on the idol to cause the Muslims to pray to it, because the black stone once hung on the idol of Cybele in Rome. People involved in many false religions are already conditioned to bowing down to such images. The image will be used by the NWO as a way to eliminate opposition, and the wheat will be separated from the chaff. True Christians do not bow down to images and will refuse to worship the beast or his image even at the cost of execution (Rev. 13:10). 

      Revelation 14:11 “And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name." 

      THE RED HEIFER 

      There is another development in Jerusalem that must be examined. In Numbers chapter 19 in the Bible, a red heifer was sacrificed to purify the water used to cleanse people. Some Jewish teachers in Jerusalem are claiming that there must be an approved red heifer sacrificed in order to build another temple and purify it. They claim that a suitable red heifer has not been found. However, there are herds of red angus cows in the USA, and even a special herd being bred in Israel. The temple sacrifice is unnecessary now that Christ has been sacrificed for the sins of the world. Those Jews who deny that Jesus is the Christ are still waiting for the Messiah, and say the Messiah will sacrifice the red heifer for the new temple. This scenario can be used by the Vatican to exalt the Antichrist as the leader of the one world religion. To the Jews who followed the traditions of men instead of the Word of God and rejected Jesus as the Messiah, Jesus said, “I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.” (John 5:43) Jesus came the first time as the sacrifice for the sins of the world, but He will return again as King of kings and Lord of lords and defeat the Antichrist according to the Bible. 

      The Jesuit priests of Catholicism are trained to infiltrate, takeover, control, and destroy all organizations and religions. They are behind the Rothschild’s takeover of Israel and Palestine. The Vatican oversees the ancient Luciferian Babylonian religions and created and controls Catholicism, Islam, and Zionist Judaism. They create wars from all sides and present the pope as the answer. It is highly probable that they will present a red heifer to sacrifice at the time the pope is revealed as the leader of the United Nations. By preparing to sacrifice a red heifer in the name of Rabbinic Judaism in Jerusalem, hostility can be manufactured between the Jews and Muslims to allow the pope to step in and present himself as the answer for peace. Then the pope can set up the virgin mother statue of Catholicism, have the black stone of Mecca transferred to Jerusalem and placed on the idol, and sacrifice the red heifer, declaring himself to be god. This will have the effect of uniting all three religions under the pope, who is the Antichrist. Satan wants to control Jerusalem because it is God’s throne on Earth. Jesus said that when Jerusalem is surrounded by armies and the Abomination is set up, those in Judea should flee to the mountains (Mark 13:14Luke 21:19-21). The troops will be the UN troops who are sent in when the red heifer sacrifice is prepared. That will signal the worldwide genocide of the Mark of the Beast. It also fulfills the prophecy of the abolition of the daily sacrifice (Daniel 11:31). True Christianity will be outlawed. 


      THE LAST HOUR 

      In these final days before Jesus returns as King of kings and Lord of lords, Satan is working desperately to establish his one world religion and government. Through people led by his spirit, he is passing laws to silence the Bible and Christians in order to maintain slaves all over the world. Arab nations in the UN are pushing to outlaw Christianity worldwide. Laws are being passed in the UN and the United States Congress to prohibit Christians from proclaiming the truth of the Bible. Christians and Christian churches are experiencing mounting pressure to submit to the New World Order. The Pope is using the Muslims to fight the Christians so that he can look good and present himself as the answer for the world’s problems. The NWO media prevents the public from seeing that the leaders are appointed, not elected. They program everyone to support the leaders they put in power. In San Diego, laws have been voted out by the citizens and repeatedly passed by the City Council anyway. Magicians and thieves use distractions to prevent you from seeing what they are really doing. Through mass media, educational systems, music, movies, television, false religions, social controls, and leaders controlled by the New World Order, people are being programmed and conditioned to bow to the Abomination of Desolation and to receive the Mark of the Beast. Just as the RFID chips are being implanted into merchandise, people will be implanted with the chips as merchandise of the Antichrist. 

      The current social economic systems will become bankrupt, even as unemployment rapidly increases. Martial law will be declared and everyone will be sent to concentration camps. The one world government will corral people under the pretense of safety, claiming the likelihood of war and riots. They will declare there are too many people and not enough food. The pope will declare himself to be god and will set up an image of mother and child, which is currently in storage at the UN. Jesus said that when you see the nation of Israel surrounded by troops, let those in Judea flee to the mountains. Singers and musicians that have sold out to the New World Order will lead worship to the image of the beast just as Nebuchadnezzar had music played for his image. Those who refuse to bow to the image when the music is played will be killed. 

      This will be the last opportunity for people to receive God’s salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Those that bow to the image and accept the Mark of the Beast will be rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior for eternity. Some Christians will give the greatest witness for the One that gave His life for them, by giving their life for Him. Some Christians will witness to others in work camps and prison camps. Some Christians will leave the cities and witness to those in rural and wilderness areas (Luke 21:21). Some people will betray even members of their own family. The wheat will be separated from the chaff. The Gospel will be offered for the last time and everyone will have to make a choice. 

      Matthew 24:8-14 “All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. 

      HOW WE SHOULD RESPOND 

      As we see these things take place, how are we to respond? We are to be aware of the signs and the time and be awake and alert, and not be like those who are asleep and unaware of what is about to take place. Jesus said that when you see the signs, this generation will not pass away until everything is fulfilled. Some among us will not die before seeing the Lord face to face. This is a time for rejoicing that we will soon see Jesus! Jesus said when you hear of wars and rumors of wars do not be alarmed because this is only the beginning of birth pains. Stay calm, trust Jesus, and work together with Bible-believing Christ-centered churches and ministries who are preaching the gospel and helping the needy. The NWO will cause an international financial crisis, seize all food supplies, and martyr everyone who refuses to bow to the image and accept the Mark of the Beast. If you take care of others, God will take care of you. There will be an increase in wickedness (Matthew 24: 12). People will mock at God and at prophecies in the Bible (2 Peter 3:4). We are to to grow in God's love and encourage each other even more as you see the day approaching (Hebrews 10:25). We are to remind each other that the rapture is coming (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Jesus commanded us to pray during the tribulation that we will be able to stand for Him (Luke 21:36). The Gospel will be preached to the whole world through the testimony of the Christians as we stand for Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:3-6). Remain in the situation you are called to as long as your conscience isn't violated or unless God clearly moves you (1 Corinthians 7:20). Let the peace of God reign in your heart (Colossians 3:15). Fears, worries, and doubts come through your mind, but if Jesus is in your heart you can listen to the peace of God in your heart for guidance because that is where faith lives. Get ready! We will be changed and the mortal will put on immortality. Trust Jesus, study the Bible, and pray. 

      SALVATION 

      If you have not received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, now is the best time to do it. Don’t wait, because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. God is just and has to punish for sin, but He loves you so much that He came as Jesus Christ and paid the penalty for all your sins when He died on the cross. Jesus fulfilled the entire law and took your punishment so that you can be forgiven and cleansed of all sin. Then He rose from the dead on the third day, ascended back to Heaven, and will return again as King of kings and Lord of lords. To reject the sacrifice of Jesus for your sins is rebellion to God. We have all sinned against God and gone our own way, but if you turn to Him right now and accept His forgiveness through Jesus Christ, you will become His child and be guaranteed a place with Him in Heaven forever. Then God will give you His Holy Spirit who will live in you and empower you to do His will. God never tells you to do something without giving you what you need to do it. We love God because He first loved us. We obey Him because we are saved, not to try and be saved. It is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives in us. We died with Him on the cross, and we are raised with Him through His resurrection to live a new life. Thank God for His forgiveness, and ask Him to show you what He wants for you. Read the Bible. Have faith in His love for you and find out what He would have you do. This world is a very short period of time when each person is given a chance to see the consequences of disobedience to God. You then have a choice to submit to God and accept His forgiveness through Jesus Christ, or reject His plan for you and spend eternity in Hell. This life is a drop of water in the ocean compared to eternity. To reject Jesus Christ is to reject Heaven and to choose Hell.

      SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS OR GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS 

      All people have been separated from God and have become enemies of God through disobedience to God. Because of this, people set their own standards of righteousness and create their own religious rituals in order to establish their own self-righteousness and justify their evil behavior. The more sinful a person is, the more self-righteous they become. Claiming their own goodness, they think they are better than everyone else because of their own standards. Some people use money as their standard of self-righteousness. False religions are created to cover sin and appear righteous based on religious works of man’s efforts. Atheists use their claim that God doesn’t exist in order to justify their sinful behavior. God hates self-righteousness and self-glorification. The Bible says our own works are filthy rags in God’s sight (Romans 3). The Bible says that everyone has fallen short of God's standards and needs to repent. 

      THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

      John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 

      The Greek word Parakletos has been translated into English as Counselor, but it actually means "beside caller" and is more accurately translated as advocate or lawyer. It is found four times in the New Testament in reference to the work of the Holy Spirit. It is also found once in the form Parakleton where it refers to the work of Jesus Christ as our advocate or lawyer (1 John 2:1). As our lawyer, the Holy Spirit counsels, teaches, instructs, empowers us to do God’s will, and presents us faultless and blameless before the Father in Heaven. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. 

      In the old covenant, people were expected to obey the law to be saved and always failed. The imperfect sacrifices of animals were offered again and again for sins but could never cleanse the worshipers of sin and guilt. The Holy Spirit came upon people to anoint them as prophets, teachers, leaders, and other positions. The Bible was written as people were led by the Holy Spirit of God upon them. Then Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would live in everyone who has faith in Him. On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came and dwelt in everyone that had faith in Jesus. He is still living in those with faith in Jesus today. Those who have the Holy Spirit living in them have the assurance of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ because the Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are the children of God (Romans 8:16). 

      Jesus said that unless you are born again of the Spirit of God, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven (John 3:3) . There are people who claim to have been Christians, but they have never been born again of the Spirit of God and have never experienced assurance of salvation. Christians are led by the Holy Spirit and have repented of falling short of the higher moral standard of Jesus Christ. Jesus showed that sin begins in the heart. Those who have repented of falling short of the standard of Jesus, and who have received His perfect sacrifice once for all for sins, are no longer under law but under grace. The Spirit of life has set us free from the law of sin and death so that we serve in the new way of the Holy Spirit and not under the written code. We are justified through faith in Jesus Christ and are kept safe by the Holy Spirit who lives in us. The Holy Spirit living inside those with faith in Jesus is one of the distinctions of true Christianity from all other religions. By giving gifts to those with faith in Jesus on the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit testified that Jesus is the Messiah and that both Jews and Gentiles receive salvation through Him. However, tongues, miracles, and prophecies are not signs that someone has the Holy Spirit. The Antichrist will display counterfeit signs, miracles, and wonders (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10). The evidence of the Holy Spirit living in someone is a changed life from selfishness and sin to love and obedience to God. 

      In Matt. 25:1-13 Jesus warned us to have oil in our lamps when He returns and not be unprepared. This refers to the necessity of receiving Him as Lord and Savior and living in His Holy Spirit. Don't put off your salvation another moment. When the door shuts, it shuts forever. If you miss Heaven, or if you suddenly die without Christ, there won't be another chance. This passage is a warning to unbelievers. 

      "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. "At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' "Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.' " 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' "But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. "Later the others also came. 'Sir! Sir!' they said. 'Open the door for us!' "But he replied, 'I tell you the truth, I don't know you.' "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. 

      “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 

      RECENT UPDATES 

      As events unfold in the world in fulfillment of Bible prophecies, I find it necessary to report on how these events fit together progressing toward the end. In this final online section, I will highlight major world events that are occuring and show how they are related together in fulfillment of the New World Order agenda and Bible prophecies. 

      The recent global H1N1 pandemic propaganda is a major part of the NWO plan for global takeover and genocide. In June of 2008, 350 homeless people in Poland were given what they were told was a regular flu vaccination. However, the vaccination contained bird flu and 21 of the experimental subjects died. No one was prosecuted in the incident. In February of 2009, the first batch of the swine flu vaccination was distributed to many nations in Europe. A lab technician in the Czech Republic unexpectedly tested the vaccinations on lab animals before distribution. All of the lab animals died as a result and tests revealed that the vaccinations contained bird flu. This was reported to the World Health Organization of the United Nations and after they investigated a recommendation was made that stronger veterinary laws be passed to forbid testing on animals. Jane Burgermeister then lost her job as an investigative journalist when she brought criminal charges against the UN, the WHO, Baxter Pharmaceuticals, and several politicians for bioterrorism and attempt to commit mass genocide. A judge in Austria later dropped the charges. You can learn more about this at Jane Burgermeister's web site - www.theflucase.com Baxter Pharmaceuticals was the company that made the vaccinations and Barak Obama owns stock in the company. It is believed that the bird flu virus will be slowly increased in the H1N1 vaccinations to cause increasing numbers of deaths, and to claim mutation of the virus and the need for more vaccinations. Vaccinations and innoculations also contain mercury that causes autism, squalene additive that causes severe complications and death, antifreeze, and preservatives that are harmful and deadly. 

      Since the plan of genocide was exposed and the vaccinations were impeded, the propaganda of the NWO mass media was surpressed. Nevertheless, the WHO of the United Nations proclaimed a level 6 pandemic in June 2009 in spite of no pandemic existing. By declaring a level 6 pandemic, the WHO officially took control of all nations and activated martial law provisions throughout the world. The nations are in readiness to take orders from the WHO. In July 2009, the WHO ordered the USA Center For Disease Control and other agencies to stop counting the number of H1N1 flu cases. This means that all mass media reports of numbers of cases are false and intended to promote the vaccinations. There are thousands of cases being reported of deaths and serious physical damage from the vaccinations which are not being reported in the mass media at all. There was also a CBS investigative news report showing that more than 90 % of the reported swine flu cases were not even the flu, let alone the swine flu. 

      In spite of the absence of any swine flu pandemic, in October 2009 the WHO told Barak Obama to declare a national emergency, which he did because he takes orders from the Vatican and the United Nations. When he declared national emergency based on an H1N1 pandemic, he officially activated all the executive orders that pertain to martial law in the USA. The nations are waiting for the order to declare martial law and begin the global genocide that the Bible calls the abomination of desolation. The Bible says in Daniel 9:27 that the abomination of desolation will occur in the middle of the seven year agreement, which means it will occur around Easter of 2012. In the meantime, the NWO is getting everything in place, working out the bugs in the system, creating fear and panic, and testing reactions. 

      Another alarming observation is that the people that own the patents on the manmade H1N1 virus, New Zealanders Robert Webster and Richard Webby, are the directors of the WHO virus laboratories and are the ones dictating to the world through the level 6 pandemic declaration. They are also on the payroll at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for work on viruses. This puts them in obvious connection with the vatican. The people that are calling the shots in the world right now are the ones that invented the H1N1 virus. 

      Even though global warming has been proven to be false and fraudulent propaganda, the Vatican is still using it through the United Nations to push their agenda of global depopulation and slavery through RFID implantable chips. They are pushing the idea that humans need to be sacrificed for nature because they want a more manageable slave population. The carbon tax being pushed through the UN agreement at Copenhagen is a UN international tax on breathing. This is for the purpose of justifying the coming mass global genocide and to force their financial control on all nations. Since Barak Obama works for the vatican and the United Nations, he is agreeing to force Americans to pay this United Nations tax on breathing. The New World Order doesn't sign agreements; they merely declare what they are doing and expect all nations to follow. The Luciferians running the New World Order at the Vatican use witchcraft and new age religion to promote the coming genocide because paganism supports the worship of nature and prayers to the gods of nature which the Bible calls demons. The environmental movement is led by these pagan religions that are run by the Vatican. For more information about Luciferian worship at the Vatican, listen to youtube videos of the interview of Svali who was inducted into the illuminati through a human sacrifice i n the catacombs under the vatican as a child and later became a born again Christian. 

      On December 18, 2009, Barak Obama spoke to all the nations of the world at the United Nations Global Warming summit in Copenhagen called COP 15 in record breaking low temperatures. The United Nations actually provided for 45,000 protesters to come and demonstrate in favor of the UN carbon tax. However, there were only enough hotel rooms in the area for 15,000 during the freezing weather. Barak Obama declared his intention to push the carbon tax on the American people. An agreement was not signed because the UN doesn't conduct business that way. The UN leaders declare what the agenda is and the rest are expected to follow. While the media was concentrating on the news of the summit, on December 17, 2009, in the middle of the night, Barak Obama quietly signed an executive order giving INTERPOL global police the authority to arrest Americans on American soil without any documentation or warrant. This news was not in the media and was covered over. The New World Order is preparing everything for the coming global genocide and terror that the Bible prophesied would come in the middle of the seven year agreement which means Easter of 2012. Although the New World Order thinks they are unstoppable, the Bible shows that a comet will come along with many plagues and devastations upon the kingdom of the antichrist and that those who trust in Christ will be caught up to be witht the LORD in Heaven just before the wrath of God. Then, at an undisclosed time, Jesus will return with His followers to defeat satan personally and set up the Kingdom of Christ on the Earth for a thousand years. 



      UPDATE January 16, 2011 

      I’ve wanted to add information into the book for a long time but it seems better to add it as an update. 

      The United Nations Presidency rotates in 15 month cycles because there are five permanent members and ten temporary members on the Security Council. Because the presidency is rotated in English alphabetic order in monthly terms, the USA will again be president in March of 2012 and the Vatican City will be eligible to be president in April 2012. This lines up with the Pope being declared world emperor at Passover and Easter in April of 2012 when the Rabbinic Jews sacrifice the red heifer. The red heifer sacrifice is found in Numbers 19 of the Bible but was for purifying people who were in the presence of a dead body. The Rabbinic Jews are led by the Vatican and claim that the red heifer sacrifice is for the purification of the temple. They also claim that the person that sacrifices the red heifer will be the messiah, because they rejected Jesus as the Messiah.They claim they have two red heifers ready and that they plan to start sacrificing Passover lambs again and plan to rebuild a temple. The muslims are also led by the Vatican and they have the Dome of the rock on the temple mount. The Vatican will stage a war between the Muslims and Jews in Jerusalem over the temple mount, and then the pope will sacrifice the red heifer revealing himself as the antichrist. There will be United Nations troops surrounding Jerusalem. Jesus said that when you see Jerusalem surrounded by troops, those in Judea should flee to the wilderness. 

      When the Vatican City becomes a permanent full member of the UN, they will become the sixth permanent head of the UN Security Council with the seventh head being the 10 temporary heads from the General Assembly which each serve as president for one month each. This fulfills the description of the Beast out of the Sea in the book of Revelation. 

      The Vatican creates problems secretly in order to promote their solution so they can have control As this book shows, the pope is the Roman Emperor, the high priest of ancient Babylonian Paganism, and the Antichrist. Roman Catholicism has always been Paganism disguised as Christianity in order to gain control over people. A rose by any other name is still a rose, and the emperor Constantine merely changed the names of the Roman gods and festivals to Christian names to regain control of the empire. As this book shows, the Vatican created Islam to take control of the Arabs but it resulted in wars over Jerusalem just as was prophesied in the Bible in the book of Daniel over 500 years before Christ. Also as the Bible prophesied, the Vatican reclaimed Jerusalem through the Rothschilds as the result of a banking loan to Turkey during World War One. They put Palestine in the care of Great Britain which the Rothschilds took control of in 1815. After World War 2, they ordered Great Britain to give Palestine to the United Nations and then they continued persecution of the Jews through the Arabs. Palestine and Jerusalem have been under the UN since the end of World War 2, but is really controlled by the Vatican. 

      In 1986, Pope John Paul united all the world religions in Assisi, Italy, under his control. The United Nations also established the United Religions Initiative to unite all religions together. At the time that the pope sacrifices the red heifer in April 2012 as world emperor, expect him to also set up an idol of the mother goddess with her child the sun god, and to move the black stone of Mecca to the idol in Jerusalem. Archaeologists have reported that the most common idol in ancient Mesopotamia was the mother goddess with the crescent moon symbol holding a baby representing the sun god. This statue represents the religion of satan holding the antichrist. The black stone was moved by the Babylonian priesthood over history from Babylon to Pergamum to Rome and then to Mecca. In Rome it was on the idol of Cybele the moon goddess. It is now worshipped in Mecca as the god allah through prayers in the direction of the black stone five times a day. Mecca was unknown in history until the first century A.D. when it was reported to be only a deserted oasis. The first mention of the Kaaba in Mecca in historical documents is in the fifth century A.D around the time when the black stone was moved there. In witchcraft, black stones represent power. Wicca is also a part of paganism and that is why catholicism and wicca share the same holidays. We can expect the Vatican to move the black stone of Mecca to the idol they set up at the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem in order to cause everyone to bow to their image through sharia and martial law. At the same time they do this, they will pull all the world currencies out and set up their one world currency of the implantable RFID chips. The Bible warns that anyone who bows to the idol or accepts the antichrist currency in their hand or forehead will be eternally condemned. They will kill anyone who doesn’t bow to the idol and no one can buy or sell without their currency. 

      Their plan is depopulation and enslavement of the human race. They will also take control of all resources throughout the world. They will begin a global genocide and depopulation. The last passage of the book of Daniel says this will begin 1290 days from the one world agreement. The agreement at the UN was on Sept. 25, 2008, and 1290 days from that time is Passover and Easter of 2012. Everything lines up. The Bible in Daniel says blessed is the one that makes it to the 1335 day. That is 45 days later. By the description in Revelation, a comet will come and hit the world. Just before the comet hits, those who have repented and put their faith in Jesus Christ will be raised, given immortal bodies, and caught up to Heaven to be with Jesus Christ at the marriage supper of the Lamb while God’s wrath is poured out on the kingdom of the antichrist. The Bible says that on Earth the seas will be tossing and people will hide in holes in the ground from what is happening. After an unknown time, Jesus Christ will return with His followers to defeat satan and his army at the battle of Armageddon. Then Jesus Christ will rule on Earth for 1,000 years until there is a new Heaven and a new Earth where He will reign forever. Those that have rejected Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will spend eternity in a lake of fire. 

      Another thing that people should be aware of is that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are part of the United Nations which is controlled by the Vatican through the Rothschilds family of international bankers. All the Central banks and world currencies are also owned by the Vatican through the Rothschilds and the ownership of major banks can be traced up through the same channels. It is the plan of the NWO to create a one world currency and economic system that enslaves everyone. This was prophesied in the Bible. 

      The Bible says,

      “Our fight in this world is not against flesh and blood (human beings), but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual powers in heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

    Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), c. 13th century C.E.



    In order to know what the doctrine of the Trinity is all about, we must have a correct definition of what it means.  

    Both Webster's Dictionary as well as the Funk and Wagnall define the Trinity as:

    • "The state or character of being three."
    • "Any union of three parts or elements in one."
    • "A threefold consubstantial (sharing the same substance) personality existing in one Divine Being or substance."
    • "The union of one God of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three infinite persons." 

    • If any one of these points can be disproven, the doctrine of the Trinity is thereby proven false:

    1. 1. There is one God (i.e., one proper object of religious devotion).

      2. The one God is a single divine being, the LORD (Jehovah, Yahweh).

      3. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is God.

      4. The Son, Jesus Christ, is God.

      5. The Holy Spirit is God.

      6. The Father is not the Son.

      7. The Father is not the Holy Spirit.

      8. The Son is not the Holy Spirit.

      Trinitarians absolutely must affirm and insist upon all of the above beliefs in order to logically confess this doctrine and if a single one of these beliefs is shown to be false, the entire doctrine of the Trinity disintegrates and is thereby proven to be totally false. Every single point must be valid for the overall doctrine to be valid. These points provide no room for doctrinal adjustments since no adjustments are possible to these points without destroying the overall doctrine itself. 

      We would remind the reader that the basic issues to be a trinitarian are:

      "(1) the full, eternal deity of Christ,

      "(2) the personhood and full deity of the Holy Spirit, and

      "(3) the unity in nature and character of the alleged three persons of the Godhead."

      In Trinitarianism, God's oneness is not "plural"--He is actually and absolutely one. Trinitarians believe in only one divine Being.


    And the Catholic Encyclopedia states the following regarding the Trinity...
    • THE DOGMA OF THE TRINITY 
      The Trinity is the term employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion -- the truth that in the unity of the Godhead there are Three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, these Three Persons being truly distinct one from another. Thus, in the words of the Athanasian Creed: "the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God."

    So the doctrine of the Trinity teaches that three infinite persons, who all share the same substance, makes up one God; or one God divided into three parts.  It is extremely important that this point is clearly understood. Trinity does not mean that there are three Gods, but it means that there is only one God which is shared equally and eternally among three persons. The one God role plays between the three god persons. When the Trinity "God the Son" dies at the cross, only a piece of the "God the Son" dies; the human part/piece dies, according to the Trinity doctrine. So according to the Trinity doctrine, the co-equal, co-eternal "God the Son" did NOT truly die, because he is ETERNAL and IMMORTAL, like his Father and "God the Holy Spirit". Only the human piece of the "God the Son" died at the cross. AND, the Trinity teaches that the Father is the Son and the Son is the Father....then there is the person of God the Holy Spirit. The Father is NOT the Holy Spirit. The God the Son is NOT the Holy Spirit. One God: Assembly Required.

    The Encarta Encyclopedia has this to say about the origin of the Trinitarian doctrine:

    "Trinity (theology)

    In Christian theology, doctrine that God exists as three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who are united in one substance or being. The doctrine is not taught explicitly in the New Testament, where the word God almost invariably refers to the Father; but already Jesus Christ, the Son, is seen as standing in a unique relation to the Father, while the Holy Spirit is also emerging as a distinct divine person.

    The term trinitas was first used in the 2nd century, by the Latin theologian Tertullian, but the concept was developed in the course of the debates on the nature of Christ. In the 4th century, the doctrine was finally formulated; using terminology still employed by Christian theologians, the doctrine taught the coequality of the persons of the Godhead. ... For an adequate understanding of the trinitarian conception of God, the distinctions among the persons of the Trinity must not become so sharp that there seems to be a plurality of gods, nor may these distinctions be swallowed up in an undifferentiated monism."

    The description here of how the Trinity doctrine originated, is not unique to the Encarta Encyclopedia, but is basically the same as that which may be found in any reliable encyclopedia. Note the statement that "The doctrine is not taught explicitly in the New Testament, where the word God almost invariably refers to the Father" Here is an assessment of the situation from people who do not have a religious agenda. The Trinity is not a doctrine which is taught in the Bible. So where did it originate? We are provided with an answer to this question as well: "the concept was developed in the course of the debates on the nature of Christ. In the 4th century, the doctrine was finally formulated …"

    The implications of this are devastating. This is a doctrine which was formulated after the Bible was completed. A doctrine which was formulated in the Catholic councils of the 4th Century! No wonder the Catholic Church has stated:

    "Our opponents sometimes claim that no belief should be held dogmatically which is not explicitly stated in Scripture . . . . But the Protestant Churches have themselves accepted such dogmas as the Trinity for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels." Life Magazine, Oct. 30, 1950

    The Bible says in Joshua 24:23 "Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel."

    Revelation 18:4 "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her [her=Churches that don't obey ALL Ten Commandments], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."'

    Revelation 22:11 - 15 "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, 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. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie."

    John 5:44 "How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?"

    SDA claims their flavor or version of the "trinity" doctrine, in fact, it is, it is worse than the Catholics version because SDA's worship three individual gods and Catholics worship one god with three heads....both break the Ten Commandments of God.

    SDA Admissions About Their "Trinity" Doctrine

    The following quotes (which can also be found on the main page) are a collection of some of the most amazing admissions from the Seventh-day Adventist Church's own leaders/scholars/theologians/professors, admitting that Adventism teaches a different "Trinity" doctrine than the historical, orthodox Christian doctrine of the Trinity, as defined by the Christian Church throughout Christian history in its creeds and confessions.

    "A more substantial development [in Adventism] was the continued quest to articulate a biblical doctrine of the Trinity, clearly differentiated from the Greek philosophical presuppositions that undergirded the traditional creedal statements. [...]

    [...]

    "The long process of change from early Adventists' initial rejection of creedal trinitarianism to their eventual acceptance of a doctrine of the Trinity could rightly be called a search for a biblical Trinity. They were not so much prejudiced against traditional formulas as they were determined to hew their doctrine as closely as possible to the line of Scripture. In order to base their beliefs on Scripture alone, and to disenfranchise tradition from exercising any theological authority, they found it methodologically essential to reject every doctrine not clearly grounded in Scripture alone. Since the traditional doctrine of the Trinity clearly contained unscriptural elements, they rejected it. [...]" (From an article by SDA Seminary professor Dr. Jerry Moon entitled "The Adventist Trinity Debate Part 1: Historical Overview," published in Andrews University Seminary Studies in 2003, and available online at http://www.sdanet.org/atissue/trinity/moon/moon-trinity1.htm)

    "This research has shown that: (1) Ellen White agreed with some aspects, but not with every aspect of the antitrinitarian views of other early Adventists. (2) Ellen White's view did change—she was raised trinitarian, came to doubt some aspects of the trinitarianism she was raised on, and eventually came to a different trinitarian view from the traditional one. (3) There is a basic harmony between Ellen White's earliest statements and her latest ones. Even on internal evidence, there is no reason to question the validity of her later, more trinitarian writings. They are completely consistent with the trajectory of her developing understanding of the Godhead, and there is every evidence that they represent her own thought.In her earliest writings she differed from some aspects of traditional trinitarianism and in her latest writings she still strongly opposed some aspects of the traditional doctrine of the Trinity. (4) It appears, therefore, that the trinitarian teaching of Ellen White's later writings is not the same doctrine that the early Adventists rejected.11 Rather, her writings describe two contrasting forms of trinitarian belief, one of which she always opposed, and another that she eventually endorsed." (From an article by SDA Seminary professor Dr. Jerry Moon entitled "The Quest for a Biblical Trinity: Ellen White’s 'Heavenly Trio' Compared to the Traditional Doctrine," published in the Spring 2006 Journal of the Adventist Theological Society and available online at http://www.atsjats.org/publication_file.php?pub_id=241&journal=1&type=pdf)

    [...] "She [Ellen G. White] taught that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three distinct individuals, which is not true of the medieval doctrine of the Trinity. [...]" (From SDA Seminary professor Dr. Jerry Moon's presentation of the above paper at the Adventist Theological Society’s 2006 "Trinity Symposium",http://atsjats.org/site/1/podcast/06_Trinity_Moon_Quest_Biblical_Trinity.mp3)

    [...] "What James [SDA co-founder James White, husband of Ellen White] and the other men were opposed to, we are just as opposed to as they were. Now, their solution to that, at that time, they didn't see any solution by retaining the Trinity concept, and getting rid of its distortions. But, in reality, we have been faithful to their commitment, and I know of nothing that they were objecting to, in objecting to Trinitarianism, that we have not also objected to. So I see a considerable fluidity and continuity." (From the Q&A session after Dr. Merlin Burt's presentation at the Adventist Theological Society’s 2006 "Trinity Symposium." The audio file from which the quote is transcribed can be found athttp://atsjats.org/site/1/podcast/06_Trinity_Burt_Historical_Adventist_Views.mp3)

    [...] "Secondly, as several of the gentlemen have pointed out, the doctrine of the Trinity that we teach is not identical to the doctrine of the Trinity as developed by the Roman Catholic Church. [...]" (A panel participant at the Q&A Session at the end of the Adventist Theological Society’s 2006 "Trinity Symposium,"http://atsjats.org/site/1/podcast/06_Trinity_Participants_Panel_Discussion.mp3)

    "I just wanted to comment, in line with what has already been said, but that there were several tribes that were identified by the Papacy as Arian. Ellen White warns us, however, about the fact that the Papal historical process has actually confused many issues. But I would like to say, I think there were seven non-orthodox, which means those who did not hold their brand of Trinitarianism, which we reject today, along with them. So, we probably would have been branded as Arian by the orthodox." (SDA scholar and author A. LeRoy Moore, at the panel Q&A Session at the ATS 2006 "Trinity Symposium," http://atsjats.org/site/1/podcast/06_Trinity_Participants_Panel_Discussion.mp3)

    "It is true that the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople did make declarations that we must now reject because they disagree with Scripture. [...]

    [...]

    "A major development [in Adventism] since 1972 has been the quest to articulate biblical presuppositions grounding a biblical doctrine of the Trinity, clearly differentiated from the dualistic presuppositions that undergird the traditional creedal statements. [...]

    "In 1983 Fernando Canale set forth an analysis and radical critique of the Greek philosophical presuppositions underlying what Dederen had referred to as 'speculative thought.' Canale's dissertation, A Criticism of Theological Reason, showed that classical Catholic and Protestant theology took its most basic presuppositions about the nature of God, time, and existence, from a 'framework' provided by Aristotelian philosophy. He argued that for Christian theology to become truly biblical, it must derives its 'primordial presupposition' from Scripture, not from Greek philosophy (Canale, Criticism, p. 359; p. 402, n. 1)." (From pages 150 and 201 of the book entitled The Trinity: Understanding God's Love, His Plan of Salvation, and Christian Relationships, written by Woodrow Whidden, Jerry Moon, and John W. Reeve (SDA theologians), and published by the SDA Church-owned Review and Herald Publishing Association (Copyright 2002). http://books.google.com/books?id=ym4Efps-ZuoC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_summary_r&cad=0)

    "The eastern Cappadocian fathers expanded on Tertullian's thought and tended to emphasize the distinct individuality of the three persons while safeguarding their unity by stressing the fact that both the Son and the Spirit derived from the Father.10 They spoke of one 'substance' (ousia) in three 'persons' (hypostases).'11 However, another issue for us today is that much of that vocabulary and thought assumed ancient Greek dualism and metaphysics, which are very distant and confusing to us now.

    [...]

    "Our own Adventist theological experience and history can make valuable contributions to this discussion. In many ways the philosophical assumptions and presuppositions of our worldview are different from traditional Christianity and bring different perspectives on some of these old issues. We do not accept the traditional Platonic dualistic worldview and metaphysics that were foundational to the church fathers' theology of the Trinity, one of these being the concept of the immortality of the soul." (From an article by Denis Fortin, Professor of Theology and Dean of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary (at Andrews University), entitled "God, the Trinity, and Adventism: An Introduction to the Issues," published in the Spring 2006 Journal of the Adventist Theological Society, and available online at http://www.atsjats.org/publication_file.php?pub_id=232&journal=1&type=pdf)
