God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself…
(2 Corinthians 5:19)
The last few weeks I have been hearing a Great (Large) Lie on «Christian Television» from many Televangelists. It is frightening and devilish – Meant to cause Great Confusion to New Christians and anger to Old Christians such as myself! …Butt, As Paul said, «We are set for the Defence of The Gospel.»
The Lie is this: Jesus is God…
I heard this and came right up out of my chair, then I heard it again… A few nights later I heard a different «Televangelist» say Jesus was Man AND God in one body – Rather than refute this I grabbed my Bible (the Only Source of Truth) and turned to Proverbs where I knew the Truth of Christ and His Beginning was recorded for us. I will let Christ speak for Himself…
«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: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.»
Christ talks about how he was brought forth (Begotten) before Creation. Next he talks about his relationship with God, «I was daily His delight», God delights in us too! Then Christ says he delights in us – The sons (and daughters) of men. 🙂
In Psalm 2:8, God said to Jesus, «Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance.» Jesus received US as His inheritance when he rose from the dead! We belong to Christ and God has adopted us as well – We are Doubly Blessed by The Father and The Son – They are two separate entities – Each with their own place and purpose in our hearts and lives… We are the Sons and Daughters of God, and the Brides of Christ!!!
Surely you do not believe a woman gave birth to God? Or God DIED on the Cross?? Or God so loved the world that he sent Himself???
Jesus, at his trial before Pilate, clearly stated he was the Son of God. The whole Bible is based upon The Father and The Son. 1st John talks about our relationship, and our fellowship, with God the Father AND Christ the Son. «If you have not the Son you have not The Father» – They are Ours – BOTH of Them.
The Scriptures call this the «Spirit of Antichrist.»
Every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist
God is a Spirit! Christ is flesh and bone… He said, «Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you see me have.» (Luke 24:39)
Trinitarian Doctrine is devilish and dishonors both God and Christ… Proverbs 8 makes this very plain. God is Eternal by nature, Christ had a Beginning! This Lie is easily believed because of Christ’s Ministry on earth even though He said, «I do nothing by myself, it is The Father IN me that does the works.»
God was IN Christ, He is in you and me too …Butt, we are neither God nor Christ! Our Family Name is Jesus Christ, we are «Christians» yet we are not Christ!! God called Jesus «God» by Name, yet he is NOT God, that is Their Family name!!!
