INTRODUCTION TO MESSIANIC THEOLOGY
Many are saying that the doctrine of Jesus Christ being God is of the devil. And many do not consider this an important doctrine to study. But Jesus Christ said in John 8:24, “…If you do not believe that I am He you shall die in your sins.”
And in John 11:25-27 Jesus tells us that HE is the ONE that should come!
Did Jesus mean all that He said? Yes! And Jesus is very serious about us believing that HE is the ONE that should come!
Therefore, all scriptures in this document are given prayerfully, in respect of God Almighty, knowing that all of us must stand before THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST!
(Romans 14:10 & 2 Corinthians 5:10)

(Colossians 2:6-12& Galatians 3:21-27, 29)
WHO IS THIS ONE GOD that we must love with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength?
Who is the only ONE we are to worship, and the ONLY ONE we are to serve?
The Holy Bible answers in Jeremiah 10:10, “But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:”. And in Acts 9:5, Saul asked the question, “Who art thou Lord?”.
And the Lord said, “I am Jesus whom thou persecutest:”
So, Jesus is the Lord, and this Lord Jesus Is The Only True God!
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY

Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
(Genesis 1:27-31 / 2:1-3 & Matthew 26:64)
Colossians 1:16 – For by JESUS were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth…
John 1:1-5, 9-12, 14 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. That Word was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He who was that light was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
1 John 5:8 – And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit of Christ, the water of Christ, and the blood of Christ: and these three agree in one.
(These three are three IN one!)
1 John 5:7 – For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: these three are one.
(These three are not three persons IN one: these three are one!)
John 8:58 – Jesus said unto the Jews that believed on Him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was I AM.
(Jesus is the I AM who spoke with Moses in Exodus 3:13-15)
(1 Corinthians 10:1-4 & Romans 1:16)
John 20:28 – And Thomas answered and said unto Jesus, “My Lord and my God.”
John 10:30 – Jesus saying, “I and my Father are one.”
Many of today’s preachers don’t teach what Jesus taught the Jews.
The Jews in Jesus’ day knew exactly what Jesus was teaching about Himself.
They knew Jesus was teaching that He was God Almighty.
In fact, the Jews picked up stones to stone Jesus in John 10:33 and said to Jesus, “For a good work we stone thee not; but for BLASPHEMY; and because that thou being a man, MAKEST THYSELF GOD.”
They knew Jesus was teaching that He was GOD ALMIGHTY!
When Jesus said unto the man in Mark 2:5& Luke 5:20, “Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.” The Jews asked the question, “Who can forgive sins, but God alone?”.
But Jesus answered them in Luke 5:24, “But that ye may know that the SON OF MAN hath power on earth to forgive sins,”
Then Jesus said unto the sick of the palsy, “I say unto thee, ARISE, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.”
And the man did just that!
Matthew 11:2-6 – “Now when John the BAPTIST had heard in the prison the works of Christ, John sent two of his disciples, And they said unto Jesus, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto John the BAPTIST’S disciples, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.”
Who was that ONE PERSON John the BAPTIST had been looking for to come?
Isaiah 40:1-31 & Isaiah 35:1-10 – “BEHOLD, YOUR GOD WILL COME”.
John the BAPTIST knew God was coming to do the same works Jesus Christ was doing.
Therefore, when John heard of the works Jesus was doing John knew that HIS GOD HAD COME, and that there was not another person he needed to look for!
GOD HAD FINALLY COME JUST AS GOD HAD PROMISED TO DO! – Titus 2:11-14.
Revelation 1:17-18 – JESUS DECLARED HIMSELF TO BE THE FIRST AND THE LAST.
Revelation 1:8, 11 – I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the BEGINNING and the ENDING, saith the LORD JESUS, which is, and which was, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY.
God has given us more than 456 PROPHECIES that point to His MESSIANIC MANIFESTATION. Over 321 PROPHECIES are separate and unmistakable.
The probability of only 20 of these PROPHECIES being fulfilled in just ONE MAN is 1 Quadrillion, 125 Trillion to 1.
Jesus fulfilled them ALL, except those to come.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD & THE SON OF MAN
Matthew 16:13 – How could Jesus Christ be God Almighty when He was the Son of Man?
John 3:16 – How could Jesus Christ be God Almighty when He was the Son of God?
Matthew 1:20 – How could Jesus Christ be God Almighty when He was begotten by the Holy Spirit of God?
1 Timothy 3:16 – And without controversy great is the mystery of GODLINESS: God was manifest in the FLESH, God was justified in the SPIRIT, God was seen of ANGELS, God was preached unto the GENTILES, God was believed on in the WORLD, God was received up into GLORY.
John 4:24 – Almighty God is a SPIRIT.
Luke 24:39 – A SPIRIT hath not FLESH and BONES.
Jeremiah 23:5-6 – But GOD’S WORD became FLESH.
John 1:1, 14 – The Lord God Almighty became FLESH.
God throughout the Old Testament did not have a human body, until His Word became FLESH.
Instead, God appeared and manifested Himself to people in different ways: such as when God appeared to Moses as FIRE in the bush that was not consumed by fire.
God also appeared as a CLOUD by day and a PILLAR OF FIRE by night to protect the Children of Israel.
John 1:18 – Before Jesus was born no one had ever seen God at any time.
God had remained unseen by all men.
Jeremiah 32:27 – GOD THE ETERNAL SPIRIT is the Father of the flesh; this makes Jesus THE SON OF GOD.
Genesis 2:7 – The LORD GOD formed Adam of the dust of the ground without the aid of a father nor a mother, and Eve was formed from just one of Adam’s ribs.
Luke 1:26-38 – So, why would it seem such an impossible thing for GOD THE ETERNAL SPIRIT to overshadow a virgin named Mary and make Himself a human body?
Matthew 1:16-25 – Although it was not Joseph’s seed that made Jesus, Joseph had to be David’s direct descendant so Mary could LEGALLY ACQUIRE David’s family name.
So, Jesus was called THE SON OF MAN because He was born into Joseph’s family; this made Jesus David’s legal heir.
John 1:19-37 – The LAMB OF GOD’S FLESH was offered in death as the atonement for the sins of the world.
(Isaiah 53 & Revelation 5)
Colossians 2:9 – For in Jesus dwelleth all the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily.

Luke 24:36-43 – As a man Jesus ate; as God Jesus multiplied bread and fish.
As a man Jesus slept in the boat; as God Jesus arose and calmed the stormy waves.
As a man Jesus prayed at the grave of Lazarus; as God Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
As a man Jesus spent nights in prayer; as God Jesus forgave sins and performed great miracles.
As a man Jesus died; as God Jesus raised Himself from the dead. (John 2:19)
Colossians 2:9 – Jesus is both God and Man, Spirit and Flesh in ONE IMAGE/ONE BODY.
(Jesus is Mind, Soul, Spirit, and Flesh!)
John 3:13 – Jesus declared Himself to be in heaven and in earth at the same time.
(Only God Almighty can be OMNIPRESENT!)
Micah 5:2 – He who was born in Bethlehem was from everlasting.
Acts 20:28 – Almighty God purchased us with His OWN BLOOD.
Isaiah 44:24 – If God is not One Person, then Jesus cannot be the LORD GOD; for only One Lord can be THE ONLY TRUE GOD.

WHAT MUST WE UNDERSTAND FIRST?
The most important fact concerning Messianic Theology is that God is an individual person and not a combination of three people.
In the pamphlet “Is Jesus The Only True God?” we are able to see clearly that God ALONE is the only ONE who is God Almighty.
To say that three different people make God complete is to say that God shares His Godly individuality with other individuals, and this is just not true.
God does NOT have THREE Minds, nor does God have THREE Souls, nor does God have THREE Holy Spirits!
Spiritually, God is a trinity!
God is a trinity of Spiritual PARTS or ASPECTS, but not a trinity of persons.
God’s Spiritual parts are as diverse as a person’s brain is from a person’s mind, yet each of God’s Spiritual parts can communicate as if each part were an individual person.
This is what makes God so unique.
God’s parts are intelligent, wise, and can communicate with each other.
We, on the other hand, are not made exactly like God.
We are not able to mentally communicate with our human spirits, nor are we able to mentally communicate with our souls.
Yet every single Spiritual part of God can communicate with each other.
Also, God would not exist if He did not have all three of His Spiritual parts.
Spiritually God has a Mind, a Soul, and a Spirit.
God’s Mind rules all of God’s other Spiritual parts.
God’s Soul is God’s Word and is subject to obeying the will of God’s Mind.
God’s Spirit obeys the will of God’s Mind and obeys the desires of God’s Soul.
God’s Spiritual parts work together to accomplish the will of God.
This understanding is not widely taught, and this fact is not understood by many, But, God is a trinity consisting of a Mind, a Soul, and a Spirit.
God has also created us in His IMAGE and in His LIKENESS, but mentally we cannot control our spirit and soul.
WE ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF GOD
God has created us to have parts just like His parts.
Spiritually we have been given three parts which make our human bodies function.
Without our spiritual parts we would not live.
Also, our spiritual parts have been enclosed in a body of flesh with which we can see, feel, hear, touch, and smell.
But our spiritual parts are not visible, nor can we touch them.
If we ask God, He can help us to spiritually hear, see, feel, and discern our spiritual parts.
All of us have been given a mind, a soul, and a spirit.
Each part has a specific purpose and God can communicate with each part if we let Him.
Our minds rule our souls and spirits.
Our minds also direct our thoughts and actions.
Our souls hold our minds and our spirits, and our souls control emotion.
The human spirit is given by God to give everyone life.
All our parts communicate with each other, but we cannot consciously control each part.
Only God can command each of His parts to do His will using His Mind!
So, we have been created to be like God spiritually.
And, God has given each of us flesh to hold and contain our spiritual parts.
Our flesh resembles our spiritual parts, and God has made our flesh so that we may see, feel, and learn what is happening in the spirit.
If you watch closely enough you can spiritually see what is happening to you in the spirit.
In fact, what happens to you in the spirit can be felt in the nervous system of your fleshly body!
OUR FLESH REFLECTS OUR SPIRITUAL PARTS
God has made our flesh in a way that directly reflects how our spiritual parts work together.
Our brains resemble our minds, because our brains command the whole body.
Our body itself resembles our souls, because it holds everything together.
The nervous system of our bodies and the parts that control blood flow resemble our human spirits, because they sustain life.
HOW DOES ALL THIS RELATE TO JESUS BEING GOD?
Everything you have read so far relates to Jesus Christ being God.
We must first understand that God has made our parts to resemble His parts if we are going to understand how and why Jesus Christ is God!
God is NOT completely incomprehensible!
God’s ways are higher than our ways.
And, God’s understanding is far above anything we can presently know.
But, knowing how and why Jesus Christ is God is NOT impossible for us to know!
Knowing how and why Jesus is God is NOT incomprehensible!
HOW DO GOD’S PARTS RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER?
Many are teaching that God consists of three individuals: a Father, a Son, and a Holy Ghost.
It is true that God has a Father, a Son, and a Holy Ghost, but they are not persons as is being taught in churches today.
They are only parts, not three persons.
You may be asking or wondering, “How can this be?”
But, you are asking or wondering this because you are looking at God’s Son as an individual separate from the Father.
But, the Son is not, nor has ever been, another individual.
The Son’s flesh is an extension of God Almighty.
God’s flesh represents who God is in the Spirit!
Just as you or I have been given flesh to resemble our spiritual parts, God has given Himself Flesh to resemble His spiritual parts.
God’s Flesh is simply an extension of His Spiritual Self.
THE TERMS FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT
Let’s look at God’s parts in how they relate to the terms Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The Father is God’s Mind, the Son is God’s Soul, and the Holy Ghost is God’s Holy Spirit.
The Father is God’s Mind because God’s will starts in God’s Mind. God’s Mind also rules every other part of God Almighty.
God’s Mind is the Father because it is from the Mind of God that all things were created!
All things were created from God’s Mind!
The Son is God’s Soul because the Soul both houses God’s Mind and Spirit, and God’s Soul is where God’s desires, emotions, and heart reside.
God’s feelings reside in God’s Soul.
God’s Soul also obeys and follows after the will of God’s Mind.
God uses His Heart and Soul, and His Mind and Spirit to create EVERYTHING!
God’s Soul is also God’s Spiritual Image of God’s Spiritual Self.
The Spirit of God is God’s Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of God is the Life of God, and the power of God.
God’s Spirit is commanded by God’s Mind and Soul to accomplish the will and desire of God.
Ultimately, both the Soul and Spirit of God are used as God’s spiritual voice, arms, legs, hands, and feet!
WHAT PARTS OF JESUS CHRIST ARE GOD’S PARTS?
All of Christ’s parts are God’s parts.
As I said before, God’s flesh is simply an extension of Himself.
Christ is God’s physical representation of His Spiritual Self.
All that Christ is in the flesh is what God is in the spirit.
All that Christ is in the flesh resembles what Christ is in the spirit.
Christ exists as God in every way.
Christ is God in both a spiritual way and a physical way.
This means that Christ can function in two places at the same time.
Christ can function spiritually and physically simultaneously.
So, when we think of Christ we should be thinking of God.
This is because God became flesh and lived among us.
God made Himself a human body and walked on this earth as a man.
God lived His life as a man, and died as a man.
God then resurrected His body back to life again.
JESUS IS POWERFUL!
WHAT PARTS OF CHRIST ALREADY EXISTED ETERNALLY?
All of Christ’s Spiritual parts existed eternally before He became flesh.
It was Christ’s Mind, Soul, and Spirit that existed eternally long before He became flesh.
God is therefore Christ in the Spirit, and God is Christ in the flesh.
So, Christ’s Mind, Soul, and Spirit had no beginning, and those Spiritual parts of Christ will have no end.
It was Christ’s Flesh that actually had a beginning in time and space.
Although Christ’s Flesh did die, the resurrection and regeneration of Christ’s Body from death made His Flesh eternal.
Now Christ’s Flesh is eternal.
WHAT PART OF GOD BECAME FLESH?
Not all of God in the Spirit became flesh.
Only one Spiritual part of God became flesh, and that Spiritual part was God’s Word or God’s Soul.
Only God’s Soul became flesh.
The other two Spiritual parts of God Almighty did not become flesh.
God’s Mind and Spirit did not become flesh.
God’s Mind and Spirit existed together WITH God’s Soul IN God’s Flesh!
So, you have all three of God’s Spiritual parts dwelling together within God’s flesh, but only God’s Soul actually became flesh.
GOD’S FLESH ALSO COMMUNICATES WITH GOD
Just as God’s Spiritual parts communicate one with another, God’s flesh also communicates with God’s three Spiritual parts.
It is God’s brain, in God’s flesh, that can clearly communicate with God’s Mind, Soul, and Spirit.
So, God’s Brain is quite capable of communicating with all of God’s Spiritual parts.
GOD NOW HAS FOUR BASIC PARTS
Since God became flesh He took on flesh and now His flesh is another part that has been added to Himself.
So, basically, God now has four parts.
God has a Mind, a Soul, a Spirit, and a Body.
And, all four parts of God work together to accomplish God’s will.
One day God will change us to be more like the way He is now! One day our four parts will function just as God’s parts function!
HOW DOES ALL THIS PROVE THAT JESUS IS GOD?
None of these facts can prove to an unbeliever that Jesus Christ is God Almighty!
The only way an unbeliever can come to know Jesus Christ is God Almighty is if that unbeliever asked Jesus to come and live in their heart, mind, soul, and spirit!
There is no other way whereby an unbeliever can KNOW Jesus is God Almighty!
So, if you desire more proof that Jesus Christ is God Almighty, I suggest to you that you ask Jesus to come and live inside of you!
Ask Jesus to become your Personal Lord, God, and Saviour, and Jesus will immediately reveal Himself to you.
But, this can only happen if you are honest and true, and only if you want Jesus Christ to save you from your sinful self!
As for more proof to you that Jesus is God, I bring before you millions upon millions of believers from every age since Christ Jesus was on this earth!
We are all evidence and proof that Jesus Christ is God Almighty!
For those of you who are believers, and who KNOW Jesus Christ is God Almighty, I bring forth to you the following scriptures which support everything I have written so far!
These scriptures prove exactly how and why Jesus is God Almighty!
GOD’S FLESHLY BODY AND CHRIST’S FLESHLY BODY
Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a CHILD is born: unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be on His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON, and shall call His name IMMANUEL.
(Which being interpreted is: GOD WITH US.)
Matthew 1:23 – Behold, a virgin shall be with CHILD, and shall bring forth a SON, and they shall call His name EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US.
John 1:1-4, 10-14, 16-18 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD.
The SAME was in the beginning with God.
ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM; and without Him was not anything made that was made.
IN HIM WAS LIFE; and the life was the light of men.
He was in the world, and THE WORLD WAS MADE BY HIM, and the world knew Him not.
He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.
But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, BUT (by the will) OF GOD.
AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER,) full of GRACE AND TRUTH.
And of His fulness have all we received, and GRACE FOR GRACE.
For the law was given by Moses, but GRACE AND TRUTH CAME BY JESUS CHRIST.
No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, WHICH IS IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER, He hath declared Him.
Acts 20:28 – Take heed therefore, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with HIS OWN BLOOD.
Jeremiah 23:5-6 – Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
(Christ is ALWAYS known as THE LORD!!!)
GOD’S MIND AND SOUL AND CHRIST’S MIND AND SOUL
Leviticus 26:11 – And I (God) will set MY TABERNACLE (flesh) among you: and MY SOUL shall not abhor you.
(God’s own Flesh!)
Leviticus 26:30 – And I (God) will destroy your high places, and cut down your images (statues) and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and MY SOUL shall abhor you.
Job 23:13 – … But He (God) is in ONE MIND, and who can turn Him? And what HIS SOUL desireth, even that He doeth.
(This ALSO SHOWS that God Almighty has only ONE MIND!)
1 Corinthians 11:3 – But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
(The head of Christ is God’s Mind!)
Psalm 11:5 – The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence HIS (THE LORD’S) SOUL hateth.
Isaiah 1:14 – Your new moons and your appointed feasts MY (God’s) SOUL hateth: they are a trouble unto Me; I (God) am weary to bear them.
(God can get weary of disobedient children!)

(All three verses say the same exact things!)

(God will make the disobedient desolate and lonely!)

Hath THY SOUL lothed Zion?
Why has Thou (LORD) smitten us, and there is no healing for us?
We looked for peace, and there is no good: and for the time of healing, and behold trouble!
Jeremiah 32:41 – Yea, I (God) will rejoice over them to do them good, and I (God) will plant them in this land assuredly with MY WHOLE HEART and with MY WHOLE SOUL.
Zechariah 11:8 – Three shepherds also I (God) cut off in one month: and MY SOUL lothed them, and THEIR SOUL also abhorred Me (God).
(God’s emotions reside in God’s SOUL!)
Matthew 12:18 – Behold My servant (Jesus Christ), whom I (God) have chosen; My beloved, IN WHOM MY SOUL is well pleased: I (God) will put MY SPIRIT upon Him, and He (Christ Jesus) shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
(Christ is God’s Son in the flesh!)
Philippians 2:5-6, 8-11 – Let this MIND (Of God) be IN you, which was also IN Christ Jesus: Who, being in the FORM OF GOD, THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY to be EQUAL WITH GOD: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him (Christ), and given Him a name which is above every name: that at THE NAME OF JESUS every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in the earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
THE TRINITY OF GOD AND JESUS CHRIST
What I am about to share with you is a revelation from Jesus Christ concerning the Trinity of God.
This explanation of the Trinity does not explain every single detail about God’s existence.
But, neither do the Trinitarian explanations nor the Oneness explanations explain everything concerning how God exists as an individual and yet still exists being a Trinity in Eternity.
Understanding the Trinity doesn’t have to be impossible, unknowable, or incomprehensible!
Even so, Jesus has told me that it is not quite the time for many to receive this explanation, not because they are necessarily wrong and going to hell, but mostly because many people are just not yet ready for the simplicity of this explanation of the Trinity.
Please take note that the scriptures use nouns and pronouns describing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, but this does NOT mean that they are separate individuals or separate people!
The entire Trinitarian explanation was started by the early Roman Catholic Church by its earliest members who still held on to the polytheistic state of mind they were in at that time.
As a matter of fact, the Catholics still hold to the claim that the trinity doctrine they teach was started by the early Catholic Church Fathers, who themselves were polytheistic before they accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.
This does NOT mean that their explanation is correct!
And, just because a large group continues to hold on to their Trinitarian explanation does NOT mean it is necessarily correct, right, or true!
Please understand, I grew up being a Trinitarian, and I have wondered and asked all the same questions most of us ask concerning the inconsistencies related to the Trinitarian explanation.
The most evident inconsistency concerning the Trinitarian explanation is that both the Old Testament and the New Testament describe God using the singular pronouns “He”, “His”, “Him”, “it”, and “that”, but never do they say God exists as three people.
God is also called “we & us” in the OT and the NT, but this does not mean He exists as three individuals.
Being the seeker that I am, I have never just blindly continued to believe what I was told without a better explanation, especially since Jesus told me years ago that this doctrine is NOT a matter that would cause us to lose our Salvation from Christ!
As time moved on Jesus moved me to worship with the Apostolic Pentecostal Church for over three years.
But, their Oneness explanation had its short comings just like the Trinitarian explanation had its own faults!
The A.P.C. group could not explain the Trinity aspect concerning God’s existence, but they did have a better grasp concerning God’s uniqueness as pertaining to being an individual living in Eternity.
Both groups failed in their ability to explain God’s existence as an individual and as a trinity.
While one group was aptly able to explain one point, they were not able to agree on the other points.
So, both the Trinitarian and the Oneness groups were right and wrong at the same time.
So, who and what was I supposed to believe?
I believed and disbelieved them at the same time!
So, what did I end up doing about all of this?
I held on tightly to what was evidently right and true concerning both, and I rejected those things that were wrong and which gave no honest explanation.
This left me feeling empty in my mind and in my heart!
What I ended up believing, at that time, was that God is indeed an individual being, but SOMEHOW He still exists as a Trinity IN SOME WAY! You just can’t ignore that!
For a long season I was used as a watcher or a witness for Jesus Christ, but I was never a Jehovah Witness!
Jesus moved me for many years to go seeking from church to church to church, but no one had an answer, and all they could tell me were the same things over and over about how God is unapproachable, or inconceivable, or incomprehensible!
THIS WAS UNACCEPTABLE TO SAY THE LEAST!
So, I kept seeking and asking Jesus, and several years ago Jesus had finally given me a much simpler, yet much richer, explanation for the Trinity of God.
This explanation may be a shock for some of you.
For others, you may even say I am teaching a heresy, or that I am teaching modalism, but please understand that I know God is ETERNALLY an individual being, and yet God still exists being a Trinity!
Also, for the sanity of your own minds, I suggest you ask Jesus to confirm this explanation He has given me in your mind, in your heart, and in your soul and spirit!
If you do this, then I assure you Jesus will confirm what I am about to tell you in your mind and in your heart, and Jesus will most definitely open up your spiritual eyes concerning the truth about the Trinity of God.
Ok, here we go my dear friends . . .
First you must understand that God created us to be in His image and in His likeness.
We are not God, but God created us to resemble Him in almost every single way.
We have a mind, a soul, a spirit, and a body.
God created us to have parts, both spiritual parts and physical parts, and this is how we exist.
It stands then to reason that physically Jesus was made to be just like us, but Jesus Christ’s Spiritual parts come from Eternity and ours do not.
So, just as we have a mind, soul, spirit, and flesh Jesus also has a Mind, Soul, Spirit, and Flesh.
But, what makes us different than Christ is that each of us have unique spiritual and physical parts created in time and space, but Christ’s Spiritual Parts are God’s Eternal Parts, and His SPIRITUAL PARTS were never ever created nor made.
Therefore, Christ’s SPIRITUAL PARTS come from Eternity, not time and space, and this is what makes Jesus Christ different than us, Spiritually!
Even Physically Jesus Christ is different than us!
Jesus’ Flesh was made directly from the Spirit Realm, but not from anything here on Earth, such as Adam’s flesh which was created from the dust of the ground.
This means Jesus was born without sin, and He never sinned, and this makes Jesus physically different.
So, how does this explain the Trinity of God?
How do Christ’s Spiritual Parts coming from Eternity help to explain the Trinity of God?
These are excellent questions, and they were just two of many questions I had as I sought Jesus Christ for the answer to the Trinity of God.
Before I give you the answers I must first go over three very important questions first.
1. What does Jesus’ Soul have to do with God?
2. How does Jesus Christ’s Soul fit into the picture concerning God’s existence as a Trinity?
3. And, we all know God has a Mind and a Spirit, but does Jesus having a Soul mean God also has a Soul?
That last question was the best question that Jesus ever put into my mind and into my heart!
And, Since Christ’s Mind is God’s Mind, and Christ’s Spirit is God’s Spirit, does this also mean that Christ’s Soul is also God’s Soul?
To be able to answer those questions adequately we must go over a few very important facts first.
1. Christ is known to have what the Holy Bible tells us is “The Mind Of Christ”.
What is this “Mind of Christ”?
Is this “Mind Of Christ” God’s Mind?
Or, does Christ have His own separate Mind?
You must be able to answer those questions correctly or you will come up with the wrong answers!
So, what exactly are the right answers?
Well, since Christ is God Almighty we are left with only ONE ANSWER that is correct, right, and true!
The “Mind Of Christ” is the Headship of Christ.
Christ’s Headship is Christ’s Father.
So, you can say that Christ’s Mind is Christ’s Father.
I know that sounds strange, but it makes perfect sense that God’s Mind rules all of God’s other parts.
God’s Mind leads and directs His Soul, His Spirit, and His Flesh, and this is why God’s Mind is the Father.
The Father is invisible and so is God’s Mind.
This similarity reveals that God’s Mind is the Father!
This also explains why the Father knows more and is also greater than His Soul, or His Spirit, or His Flesh!
So, Christ’s Mind can only be God’s Mind.
If Christ’s Mind is not God’s Mind then Christ would have His own separate Mind from God Almighty!
But, Since Jesus is God and God only has ONE MIND, then that can only mean that Christ’s Mind is the same Mind that God has with and within Himself.
If you say it any other way, then Jesus cannot be the Lord God Almighty!
So, Physically, Christ “THE MAN” shares the same Mind that God has in the Spiritual Realm.
This means that Christ is both God in the Spirit and God in the Flesh.
This also means that Christ’s Father is His Mind in both the Spiritual and the Physical Realms.
2. Christ is known to have “The Spirit Of Christ”.
Is Christ’s Spirit God’s Spirit, or does Jesus have His very own Spirit apart from God?
Again, there is only one right answer, and I can almost guess which answer has come into your mind.
If Christ had His own separate Spirit from God, then Christ could not be God Almighty.
So, this means that Christ’s Spirit is God’s Spirit.
God’s Spirit obeys and follows the will of God’s Mind.
The Mind of God directs God’s Spirit on what to do.
3. Now we must address Jesus Christ’s Soul.
THIS IS THE KEY to understanding that Jesus Christ is completely God Almighty Spiritually and Physically!
Since we now understand that Jesus shares His Mind and Spirit with God, we can now add Jesus Christ’s Soul to the picture!
THE KEY TO ALL THOSE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS is that Jesus also shares His Soul with God Almighty!
Therefore, this means Jesus Christ’s Soul is God’s Soul, and Jesus Christ shares EVERYTHING He has with God.
Jesus Christ even shares His Flesh with God, seeing that all of God’s Spiritual parts are inside of His Flesh.
This means Jesus is both God and Man simultaneously!
Jesus is 100% God both Physically and Spiritually!
So, this means Jesus is 100% GOD and 100% MAN.
Out of all the humans on the earth Jesus is the most special, because Christ shares everything He has with God Almighty, and everything He has is God’s.
So, unlike us Jesus Christ shares His Mind, and His Spirit, and His Soul, and His Flesh with God Almighty!
There is one last detail that must be covered . . .
What PART of God in the Spirit BECAME Flesh?
The answer is obviously very simple . . .
God’s Soul became Flesh, and inside God’s Flesh dwelt God’s Mind, Soul, and Spirit, and this means that the fullness of the GODHEAD was IN CHRIST BODILY!
Only ONE PART of God actually became Flesh and that was God’s Word, or God’s Son, or God’s Soul.
This means God’s Spiritual Parts DWELT TOGETHER inside of God’s Flesh while still existing in heaven!
Jesus has taught us that He was in heaven at the same time He was on the earth.
(John 1:1,3,14,18 & 3:13)
Only God (in and of Himself) can be in two places at once, so this means Jesus Christ is completely and fully God Almighty!
