The Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Jesus.

Many will say the Holy Ghost is a third person the trinity this is not so and here’s why.

And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: (Romans 1;4). 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 (Roman 8;9) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (Romans 8:11).

Who raised Jesus from the dead? Did he raise himself? after all he himself rose others from the dead. These verses offer no contradiction either, there is one Spirit and the word tells us the Lord is that Spirit ( 2 Cor 3;17). Since God is Spirit  and the Lord is that Spirit, then the Spirit of Christ is Christ’s own Spirit. (John 4;24 and Ro 8;9). So when Jesus said he would raise himself he did. He is the resurrection and life (John 11;25) Who is the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Jesus.

Godhead..Demonstrating the Fulness of Deity!

In him dwelt the fulness of the godhead Bodily (Col 1;19).
Divine fulness. In Jesus nothing is lacking. He is God’s perfection and himself, perfect God.
What God was he as a man is and the perfection of it.
Jesus is the perfection of all that God was and is. This means that man, cannot be perfect as a man without being one with God as Jesus was one with God, for it is only in oneness can we receive fulness. Just as a man who is one with his wife is full of love for his wife so too, a man that is one with God is full of the love of God.  When man ignores the oneness of God teachings in scripture, he deprives himself of Christlikeness and can no more be a son of God any more than an estranged wife be his wife. Oneness is not a signed marriage contract, its not a paper thing! It’s not what you read, it’s what of God that you embrace in its fulness,  and its only in the embracing of “oneness” with God can man fully, truly and completely manifest God. Hence the importance of knowing the Jesus who as man is the Godhead bodily.

The Angel of the Lord (2)

An Angel is not a man and a man is not an angel. Only God can appear as an angel and appear as a man. Many claim to have seen angels and claim God visited them, but they will deny both his humanity and his deity, as the Muslims do. An angel came to Muhammad yet they will deny the humanity and deity of Christ. An Angel is not a man and a man is not an angel, BUT BOTH HAVE THE FORM OF A MAN. God appeared as an angel and looked like a man. Manoah’s wife called GOD, a MAN of God (Judges 13:6). This was GOD who she saw who Made himself “visible” as being a MAN for Manoah said, “We have seen GOD” (Judges 13;22).

God, at my My Place, Tonight!

God as spirit is everywhere present and present everywhere. God as man moved from place to place to place as a person. He appeared at random to whoever he wills although he is unseen even when he is nearby. Scriptures prove that God has a place and that God is a person. First, scripture tells us God is not a man that he should lie ( Nu 23:19 ). Secondly, “The Lord God said, I will go and return to my PLACE” (Hosea 5:15). “I myself dwelling a high and Holy Place” (Isaiah 57;15). and for the Lord “cometh out of HIS PLACE” (Isaiah 26:21) “and will come down and tread upon the earth.” (Micah 1;3). “I will COME DOWN to deliver” (Ec 3;7,8).  As spirit, God cannot be out of place and not in places, he is in all places at all times, yet as man he can APPEAR that is manifest himself in PERSON as he wills in any specific time and place. I know this, I’m glad he came from his place to my place to give me what’s his, so what’s his could be mine. All this brings us to this one great ponderable, JESUS CHRIST, yes that’s the person I’m talking about, “JESUS” the same yesterday and forever.  (Hebrews 13;8)

Is The Angel of the Lord, The Lord!

General Subject
The Believers Bible Study
Message 7
The Angel of the Lord
Scripture reading (Genesis 28)

PROPOSITION:It is my proposition that the person of God was an angel in the Old Testament.
INTRODUCTION: God reveals himself progressively throughout scripture. First as Spirit then as an angel and indeed many other forms. The progressive revelation of God is seen in Jesus who said I AM. A revelation of God himself in person.

1.The Angel of the Lord is The Lord God himself.

The God which fed me all my life long .. The angel which redeemed me (Genesis 48:15,16).
Called “God Almighty” in verse three (Genesis 48;3) God almighty meaning, El Shaddai, the all-sufficient God, the Outpourer and Dispenser of mercies, The name almighty God that appeared to him at Bethel :(Genesis 28:13). and again he calls an “angel”

2. The Angel of the Lord appeared to Moses.
.. in a bush saying I am the God of thy Fathers (Acts 7;30).

3. When the Angel of the Lord appeared it was God himself in person.
The angel of the Lord appeared unto Moses in a flame of fire and said..

“And we have full proof that this was no created angel, but the Messenger of the Divine Council, the Lord Jesus Christ. Who then was the angel that redeemed Jacob, and whom he invoked to bless Ephraim and Manasseh? Is it not Jesus? He alone can be called Goel, the redeeming Kinsman; for he alone took part of our flesh and blood that the right of redemption might be his…” (Adam Clarke Commentary (Genesis 48).

4.The angel of the Lord appeared to Manoah and his wife. Manoah said we have seen God.
(Judges 13;3,22) for Manoah did not know he was the Angel of the Lord (v16). Manoah asked him his name “And the angel said ” Why do you ask my name seeing it is secret (KJV). seeing it is wonderful (Judges 13:18 NKJV).

5. God’s name was not discovered until Jesus.
In him dwells the fulness of the godhead bodily. (Col 2;9)

6. God who was spirit became man.
Trinitarians will have us belike that Jesus as second person became man. this would not make sense why and how would or could a man become a babe.The evidence is clear God himself took on flesh (1 Timothy 3;16) Spirit took on human expression.

7. Jesus revealed that secret name.

I have revealed not then they name the name thou gavest me to bear (John 12:28) The name at which even knee shall bow and every tongue confess to God (Phil 2;9. Roman 14;11). When we use the name of “Jesus” we confess to GOD!

The redemptive revelation of the person god is in the name of Jesus. No one could know the name of god until he himself became our redemption. hence the word salvation and God are intertwined. Jesus means salvation. “The Lord has become my light and my salvation” (Psalm 91;16).

8.And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. (Acts 7;30) When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,(v31) Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold (v32).

Jesus said, Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am (John 8:56-59).

9.Jesus is the I am
The I AM that appeared to Abraham and said I AM thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.(Genesis 14;15).

10. Jesus is the Lord God.
The LORD who came too Abraham in angelic form comes to us as JESUS.

NOTES:Jesus is Lord the proof of his deity and oneness lies here. He is greater than the angels and can visit us himself. The Angelo the Lord is not another who does his work but himself doing his own work. almighty he is as is God. Many worship angels seek angels and desire to see angels the truth is this do we know the angel of the Lord as God, do we see that Jesus is God! when angels come they dispel the lie that there is a trinity of beings called God or that angels are greater than the Lord.

Is the God of the Bible the Father alone?

a DEBATE taking place later this month between Dale Tuggy and Dr Michael. Brown. KOG Missions.com
I put forth this question: In Isaiah 9:6 Jesus is called the everlasting father. (Isaiah 9:6) which means he was the Father even when he was the Son. He said “He who has seen me has seen the father” (John 14;9) If Jesus is the Father, then do you believe Jesus alone is your God?
