For many of thousands of years people have wondered and even gone as far as to argue about the true pronunciation of the name of God. When dealing with four consonants and no vowels in the tetragrammaton (YHWH) it may cause confusion, and the translations from Hebrew to Greek to English does not help with the overall confusion in this matter for some. All we know is that there are a number of different pronunciations associated with God's name such as, Yahuah, Yahweh and of course Jehovah which is the most commonly used rendition within the English language today. Recently they have run across an archaeological find that proves that God's name is JEHOVAH! which I have included as the first video below.
But while this is exciting for us to see, there are much bigger problems when it comes to God's name, or perhaps better put there are questions out there as to the true nature of God Himself. Within this page we will attempt to clear all the misconceptions up.
On many occasions, I have come into contact with people who I hear say that Jesus or Yahshua is God. Well, I am here to tell you that this is a common misconception that unfortunately many churches and pastors teach. These people are believing this based off of ONE Scripture in the book of John. In John chapter 10 verse 30 where Jesus proclaimed that "I and the Father are one." So based on this one scripture it is somehow assumed that when Jesus was born into humanly flesh it was actually God that came down to earth as a man and called himself Jesus.??? Quite frankly I have never heard something so absurd in my life.
The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." So I am going to do exactly that. I'm going to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus or Yahshua is NOT God. So what did Jesus mean when He made this statement in John 10:30.?
Let us take a look at the context. In verse 25, Jesus stated that He did works in the name of his Father Yahweh. From verses 27 to 29, he talked about symbolic sheep whom his Father had given him. Both statements by Jesus would have made little sense to His listeners if He and His Father were one and the same person or entity. Instead, Jesus said, in effect, 'My Father and I are so close-knit that no one can take away the sheep from me, just as no one can take them away from my Father.' It is much like a son saying to his father's enemy, 'If you attack my father, you attack me.' No one would conclude that this son and his father were the same person. Yet all could perceive the strong bond of unity between them.
In the previous section we discussed the false doctrine of the trinity. This I'm afraid is where this misconception stems from my friends. There are countless verses within the Bible where Jesus makes it abundantly clear that he was not put on the earth to do HIS work, but to do the work of the ONE who sent him.. This being God His (and our) Heavenly Father. In contrast with Satan the Devil and the first human couple, Adam and Eve, Jesus never wanted to become independent of God. "The Son cannot do a single thing of his own initiative, but only what he beholds the Father doing," Jesus explained. "For whatever things that One does, these things the Son also does in like manner."—John 5:19; 14:10; 17:8.
So with this in mind let us take a few scriptures from the bible that back up the fact that The Father and the Son are indeed separate and unique spiritual beings. For instance let us look at the Baptism of Jesus Himself in Luke 3:21-22 - 21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as He was praying, heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in a bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." So here you can clearly see the separation of all 3 entities, God the Father, The Holy Spirit and God's beloved Son, Christ Jesus. I personally do not see how anybody can get a trinity out of this, or attend to the argument that Jesus was God in the flesh.
We can carry on with a scripture out of the book of "Isaiah" Where the Father proclaims His chosen one in whom His soul delights. Isaiah 42:1 Here is My Servant, whom I uphold, My Chosen One, in whom My soul delights. I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will bring justice to the nations. As we can yet again see the separation of The Father, The Holy Spirit and The Chosen One, Christ Jesus.
We can verify the above passage with 2 Peter 1:17 For He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice from the Majestic Glory said to Him, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." We can further corroborate this as our 3rd witness in Matthew 3:16-17 - 16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."
I could provide scripture after scripture after scripture that shows without a doubt there is no such thing as a trinity and indeed God The Father, The Holy Spirit and Christ Jesus are each separate and unique. Plus there is this tiny little fact that most seem to miss and that is, that NOWHERE in the Holy Scriptures does it ever mention a trinity.
I will leave you with this; John 6:43-45 - 43 "Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus replied. 44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets: 'And they will all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from Him comes to Me...
But still my friends even after we can show an over abundance of proof that God, The Holy Spirit and our Savior Christ Jesus are indeed separate entities we will still have people who attempt to twist and manipulate the scriptures to fit into their man-made belief's and traditions. Even though, NOW GET THIS. When people get baptized by these same people who believe in the trinity, they call upon the 3 witnesses to oversee the baptism which are: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.? Funny, but this seems like three separate entities to me... Hmmmm.. Go Figure...
Let God Be True and Every Man A Liar.
This video was aired on the Discovery Channel a short time ago. What was found may clear up a lot of things for believers in God and those who may wrestle with whether or not God is real. This find should show people that not only is God very real, but even back this far the people of that age knew full well the name of God. These archaeologists were probing caverns with cameras as there were no entrances that one was able to physically enter. Their findings through this method of analysis are absolutely amazing to say the least and as you can see by their reactions there is an extremely high degree of excitement that fills the air during this discovery. No matter what, everything will be revealed in the final days. In the book of Luke chapter 8 verse 17 it states: For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Also in the book of Luke chapter 12 verse 2 it reads: Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
Dr. Joe Martin of Atlanta Bible College presents the first in a series about "The One True God." In this session, Dr. Martin speaks about Jesus and God in the New Testament and brings us an understanding that Jesus is the son of God but not God. This video reflects on: What is Truth? Joe Martin and other "One God" believers around the world teach that traditional views about God as found in the Doctrine of the Trinity & in Oneness (UPCI), Apostolic, Arian & Mormon perspectives are inaccurate according to the Bible: that the truth about the One true God, faith & the gospel is not rightly reflected in any of those traditional doctrines. One God believers teach that all of those positions represent variations on Christian tradition rather than Biblical truth. You will find One God people preaching that: Yahweh is The One & only One (Deut. 6:4) and that Jesus (Yahshua) is the Christ (John 17:3) God's only begotten human son born of the virgin Mary. One God believers challenge Christianity to choose either truth or tradition about God.
Here again we have Dr. Joe Martin of Atlanta Bible College presents the second in his series "The One True God." In this session, Dr. Martin speaks about Jesus and God telling us from the Scriptures that Jesus is not equal to God. The video reflects (as did part 1) on the truth of the Bible as taken directly from the scriptures and not from the mixing of scripture and traditions / beliefs of man as opposed to directly what God's word says. Unfortunately this has occurred over time due to mistakes being made in translations as was explained in part 1 by Dr. Martin. God's name having been taken out of the bible in over 6000 places and replaced simply with the title LORD did the most damage to the understanding of the scriptures. However, if we actually read through the scripture we can easily make the determination as to the structure of power and also easily establish who God and Jesus are. One would have to be blind in order not to see The Father and the Son's separation while at the same time establishing the Father / Son relationship and unity.
Dr. Joe Martin of Atlanta Bible College presents the Third in his series "The One True God." In this session, Dr. Martin brings us amazing statistics about Jesus and his relationship to God. Dr. Martin tells us that the God of Jesus Christ should also be the God that we worship and serve. Look my friends this is not some form of rocket science here. The churches have adopted may pagan beliefs within itself and many of the practices of the Babylonian, Egyptian and Greek cultures. This has done nothing but to confuse the people, which is a terrible thing, as understanding who our Father Yahweh is and who our Lord Jesus (Yahshua) are is of the utmost importance to our salvation. Those who are of the belief system of the imaginary Babylonian trinity have got to wake up and wake up quickly. These organizations have been compromised by the doctrines of devils and are in turn polluting their entire congregation with false and life threatening beliefs... This is extremely serious.. Don't walk, but run from these organizations who teach these paganistic beliefs my friends, as your very salvation depends on it.
Dr. Joe Martin of Atlanta Bible College gives some examples of how we can learn about the identity of God and of Jesus by checking information which can quickly be sorted out by computer programs. This is the last in a four part series that was presented at a recent Christian Workers Seminar in Tennessee. This video reflects on: What is Truth.? Joe Martin and other "One God" believers around the world teach that traditional views about God as found in the Doctrine of the Trinity & in Oneness (UPCI), Apostolic, Arian & Mormon perspectives are inaccurate according to the Bible: that the truth about the One true God, faith & the gospel is not rightly reflected in any of those traditional doctrines. Look folks there is really no way to come at this gently, it is best to just come right out and say it. Scripture shows us that Jesus or Yahshua (as I like to call him) is seperate of our Father Yahweh, there really is no way that someone can confuse this, unless they simply cannot understand what they are reading. To me the scriptures are as clear as day and night, there is nothing here that would cause this confusion.?
