Why the Educated don’t know God!

..But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. (1 Cor 2;10-16 KJV).

The Truth of God, as God, is never acquired by human reasoning no matter how intellectual, clever or educated the reasoner may be. Truth is IMPARTED by divine revelation to the common man who by uncommon reasoning accepts by faith, that which the senses cannot comprehend. God then is the conveyor of uncommon knowledge to the common man. What philosophy cannot master and theology cannot knit together, the man in the street knows, for God has revealed to him by his spirit the things only known to God of God. This is not to say the educated does not know God as indeed there are educated folks who truly know God but rather education itself is not the way to God. Jesus is! and it’s in knowing Jesus, man truly knows God.

Immuteable

WORD STUDY
Immutabiity
Immutable (Hebrew:) Strong’s Vines. The state or being unchangeable God is immutable in character. he changes not. This is interesting as the God of the New Testament is often believed to be different to the God of the Old. Immutability, the possibility to remain the same throughout time and beyond it. Which means Since God alone is immutable, then “Jesus” the same yesterday today and forever  (immutability) cannot be anything less than God.

DO You Know Jesus as a Son or YOUR Father?

Grow in the knowledge of God, (2 Peter 3:18).
The knowledge of God himself, some folks know Jesus as a son, worship him as a son, yet that is who he was was in the days of his flesh. (Heb 5:7) Spiritual men know him after the spirit, AS HE IS TODAY. Who he was and is after the resurrection, and to that Paul declared “Our Great God and saviour” (Titus 2:13). and Thomas declared “My Lord and my God” (John 20:28). Do you know him after the spirit? (Luke 24:30-35) for men like you and I cannot know him as a Son, we can read about his life as a Son, but we don’t know him after the flesh (2 Cor 5:16) and the reason why a man cannot know Jesus as God is because he has not entered into his death, burial and resurrection. Now if you are baptised, buried into his name, you know your father, for you have entered into the life of the one that bears the family name. You entered the life the same as he, through his death, burial and resurrection. (Ro 6:4 Col 2:12) You died in his death, you were buried in his baptism and you were resurrected with him when you got the Holy Ghost. If you did not know him you would have just prayed a prayer a sinners prayer and thats it, no power, no life, no death and no resurrection just a confession unto confusion. But YOU, followed Jesus through that watery grave and so became born of water and spirit. No YOU, yes You, know Jesus as your father. (Jn 8:19. Acts 2:38). Jesus is God!

God Notes#01

God Notes #01
by Paul B Thomas

The One Name of The One Lord God

“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” (Zech 14:9).

I am convinced that Jesus is God as says the scriptures. If Jesus is not God then who is the God who will save me and become my redeemer.

God is God and there is none after him or before him. God is one and needs not another to be man’s saviour, redeemer, voice or messenger.

God is one. The Ten Commandments reveal that the Lord is God. And over 6000 times we are told that the “Lord is God” for example Deuteronomy 6:4. Hear O Israel the Lord our God is one Lord

The phrase. ‘Lord thy God’ reveals to us who it is that is God. The LORD The Lord he is God (Psalm 100:3). Thomas in the New Testament called JESUS ”My Lord and My God’ (John20:28) John called him ‘the True God’ (1 John 5:20). Titus called him ‘Our Great God and Saviour’ (Titus 2:13).

Every tongue shall confess that JESUS is Lord(.Philippians  2:11) Let’s take this seriously folks, the one who all one day confess is Jesus. All men will one confess Jesus to be God! That is what LORD means GOD! No other god will be confessed, man will not bow down to any other so called god, no matter what their faith or religious experience. All will bow down and acknowledge Jesus as God.

Whoever calls upon the NAME of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13). These scriptures clearly reveal that the “name” of him who is called the LORD God is Jesus. One day all will call him LORD meaning  Jehovah. All one day will confess him as God. Selah!

We know that “Lord” and “God” are titles but salvation is in the NAME why because thees only one being who has revealed deity. No other has walked with him and claimed to be ‘in him’ and know him as Jesus, In fact he said no other knows the Father but the Son and him to whom the Son will reveal.  ( John 14:11. Luke 10:22).

“I and the father are ONE” Jesus said. Not a one as some would have us believe like husband and wife. For it is possible for a husband to be present without his wife. But wherever Jesus was that’s where the Father was also. The Father is in me (John 10:30. John 14:10).  Again scripture tells us God was in Christ reconciling the World unto himself (2 Cor 5:19).

He said only what the Father said, he done only what the Father told him to do, he came to do the Fathers will all these things show us that he was so at one with the father that he was the Father. But why? so that we would know that the father is real. he came to reveal the Father. What other reason would there be for a thirty three year old to say only what he father says and do only what his Father tells him to do. No normal thirty three year old lives like that!

Except this man be himself the Father!

So the Lord came to reveal God! The Son came to reveal the Father and only he could. Here is the incredible truth, Jesus in the Greek means Jehovah which translated means ‘salvation’ again psalms tells us The LORD is my light and my salvation. (Psalm27:1) Jesus is salvation coming to us. Again God is my light and salvation it’s the same as saying JESUS is my Jehovah!

There is salvation in. No other name other than Jesus why? Jesus is our Jehovah Emmanuel ‘God’with is (Isaiah9:6).

Origin of the Trinity

It is not a word or or a concept or a doctrine of the early church as in Acts. Trinitarianism was not practiced by the Jews or the early Christians. The prophets did not declare a triune God neither did the apostles. The doctrine of the trinity is not the doctrine of the one true God and his church and as such must be deemed heresy by those who adhere to the apostles doctrine (Acts 2:42). The words ‘blessed trinity’ ‘Holy trinity’ and ‘trinity’ are NOT found in scripture therefore we can conclude that one who preaches truth should not use unbiblical words to define something not found in scripture.

The term “God the father” “God the Son” and “God the Holy Ghost” are not found in scripture. This reveals a key point in our discussion. God is not made up of three co-equal persons. The “Lord God” is God. He alone is God. Who is the Lord? The Lord he is God.

It’s Origins in Brief:

Augustine  In Sermon 90 on the New Testament says, “2. For hold this fast as a firm and settled truth, if you would continue Catholics, that God the Father begot God the Son without time, and made Him of a Virgin in time.” wikipedia

Tertullian, Lived in Carthage around 200 and was the first to write on Christianity in the LATIN language.  He gave us the English word  “trinity” from the Latin: trinitas).

His most important work is the Apologeticum, in defense of the Christians. Running it close must be Adversus Praxean, in which the doctrine of the Trinity comes into clear focus for the first time, in response to a heretic who was twisting the biblical balance between the persons of the Godhead Noddy guide to Tertullian

Praxeas was a Monarchian from Asia Minor who lived in the end of the 2nd century/beginning of the 3rd century. He believed in the unity of the Godhead and vehemently disagreed with any attempt at division of the personalities or personages of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Christian Church. He was opposed by Tertullian in his tract, Against Praxeas (Adversus Praxean) Wiki

Athanasius He defended the full divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ against the majority of the bishops who were Arian. Arianism denied the full divinity of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was a god, but not God. ANSWERS

The council of Nicea (235 AD) gave the church “trinitarianism.” (from ariansm) where Jesus Christ is God but Not GOD!

The New Catholic Encyclopedia 1967 “The formulation ‘one God in three persons’ was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century.”

Hastings Dictionary of the Bible.

1963, page 1015, says, “The Trinity… is not demonstrable by logic or by Scriptural proofs,…The term Trias was first used by Theophilus of Antioch (c AD 180), …(The term Trinity) is not found in Scripture.” 

The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary Tells us, “The formal doctrine of the Trinity as it was defined by the great church councils of the fourth and fifth centuries is not to be found in the NT [New Testament]” (Paul Achtemeier, editor, 1996, “Trinity”). New

Bible Dictionary: “The term ‘Trinity’ is not itself found in the Bible. It was first used by Tertullian at the close of the 2nd century, but received wide currency [common use in intellectual discussion] and formal elucidation [clarification] only in the 4th and 5th centuries” (1996, “Trinity”).

In 265 AD, the Bishop of Rome Dionysius. complained about those who “divide and cut to pieces that most sacred doctrine of the Church of God, the Divine Monarchy, making it as if it were three powers and partitive substances and godheads three.” (Ken Raggio).

By 325 AD, the Roman Caesar Constantine had stopped persecuting the Church and had begun to endorse the new Trinitarian version of God. In the organizational meeting of the Roman Catholic Church at the Council of Nicaea (Italy), the NICEAN creed was formulated.

The Nicaean Creed 325 AD Propagated and instituted the Doctrine of the TRINITY. Published first in 325 AD!  “The new Trinitarian Roman Catholic Church of Rome demanded that all ONENESS, MONOTHEISTIC, or JESUS’ NAME believers be REBAPTIZED as TRINITARIANS in the titles Father, Son and Holy Spirit, or have all their property confiscated.” (Ken Raggio).

With the replacement truth that God was a trinity there followed an introduction of the Roman road to salvation. Another Roman creation. where followers could be baptized in a trinitarian formula that replaced the name of Jesus. SO NOW WE SEE THAT NOT ONLY WAS THE DOCTRINE OF GOD RECREATED BUT ALSO THE DOCTRINE OF SALVATION.

The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, page 263, says, “The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century.”

Martin Luther, the German priest who initiated the Protestant Reformation, conceded, “It is indeed true that the name ‘Trinity’ is nowhere to be found in the Holy Scriptures, but has been conceived and invented by man” (reproduced in The Sermons of Martin Luther, John Lenker, editor, Vol. 3, 1988, p. 406).UCG.ORG

My Note: To this day one must be baptized into the name of the father son and holy Ghost (that line repeated over you as you are baptized in order to be considered a Catholic. The strange thing is this.Many charismatic and pentecostal denominations also require this..THE TRUTH in scripture no one was baptized this way. All who follows Jesus were baptized into the name.

Well isn’t that what Jesus said Go make disciples baptizing them in the in the “name” (singular one).
