6. A Deeper Vision on the Evil of Satan's Trinity Doctrine

This Sabbath day, February 18, 2006, the Lord gave me a deeper vision on the Trinity Doctrine, explaining to me in outline form exactly how Satan has profited as the originator of that doctrine which became the central doctrine of the Catholic church or Babylon.  The outline is as follows:


·       The Holy Spirit is the life and soul of the Son of Man.  "Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.


·       In the gift of the Spirit [HIS LIFE--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE], Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.


·       Phl 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 


·       Phl 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


·       The Son emptied Himself of His Divinity to become a servant:  “Form of a servant.  Paul is contrasting “the form of God” with “the form of a servant” and emphasizing the vast difference between the two estates.  The same word (morphe) is used for “form” here as in “form of God” (v. 6).  The word for “servant” (doulos) is that commonly used for “slave” (see on Rom. 1:1); so the apostle is saying that Christ emptied Himself and took on the essential attributes of a slave.  As a slave’s outstanding characteristic is that of rendering unquestioning obedience, so as a man the Son undertook to render obedience to the Father (cf. on Heb. 5:8).  He grasped not at divine sovereignty, but as service, which became the ruling passion of His life. (Matt. 20:28).  His whole life was subordinated to the will of the Father, as our lives should be.  The life of Christ thus became the simple outworking of the will of God (MB 14, 15; DA 208). How all this could be accomplished is beyond human comprehension; it is a part of the great “mystery of godliness” (see 1 Tim. 3:16). But we may clearly see how small is any sacrifice on our part by way of comparison with the sacrifice of Him whom we profess to follow.  Shall we who are so far inferior to Christ stand so much on our frail reputations that we find it difficult or impossible to yield our wills to the will of God? When we share in the true spirit of Christ, when He dwells within us and we live the life of the Son of God, the objective of Paul’s admonition in the early verses of this chapter will have been fulfilled in us. We will then be like Christ.” SDA Bible Commentary on Philippians 2:7., Vol. 7, p. 155.


·       God is Spirit and the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are of the same ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. That is what constitutes them as ONE GOD. The question may arise as to how the Holy Spirit was present at the forging of the Everlasting Covenant if the third person was not formed until the Incarnation of the Son. The answer is that by the same principle that Christ was slain from the foundation of the world, so His Holy Spirit was present when He volunteered to empty Himself of that Spirit as a bequeathed gift to man. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Time is not a factor with the Godhead. Seeing the end from the beginning, the Son experienced everything He would incur when covenanting to become the Saviour of man. The same applies to the Father. We should love Him equally, because being omniscient, He experienced everything His Son experienced.  Meditate on this.


·       "Before Christ came in the likeness of men, he existed in the express image of his Father. He thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Nevertheless He voluntarily emptied himself, and took the form of a servant. He was the incarnate God, the light of heaven and earth. In him are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Ellen G. White, Youth's Instructor, 20th December 1900 'Christ's humiliation")


·       Christ’s Incarnation BEFORE THE CROSS, was a great sacrifice—the sacrifice of His DIVINE ONLY BEING as a bequeathed gift to us for the express purpose of overcoming and being restored to the image of God.


·       The Trinity Doctrine, originated by Satan, seeks to obviate the great sacrifice of the Son of God at His Incarnation, by teaching that the Holy Spirit existed for eternity with the Father and the Son, and is merely sent to comfort us. Does the Bible teach another mission of the Holy Spirit? Bible text: Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.


·       "The Power of God in the Third Person.--The prince of the power of evil can only be held in check by the power of God in the third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit.-- Special Testimonies, Series A, No. 10, p. 37. (1897).


·       The Trinity Doctrine, in teaching that the Holy Spirit co-existed eternally with the Father and the Son, exempts the great sacrifice of the Son of His Holy Spirit life and soul for our empowerment and regeneration.


·       "The Incarnation of Christ was an act of self-sacrifice; His life was one of continual self-denial. The highest glory of the love of God to man was manifested in the sacrifice of His only-begotten Son, who was the express image of His person. This is the great mystery of godliness. It is the privilege and the duty of every professed follower of Christ to have the mind of Christ. Without self-denial and cross bearing we cannot be His disciples." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Book 2, p. 185.


·       By teaching that the Trinity Doctrine existed eternally, there is no eternal death of the Son to His former DIVINE ONLY BEING, thus satisfying the demands of the Testator Covenant and man’s eternal death decree for sin.


·       Three days in a tomb does not atone for man’s death decree.  So in effect, the Trinity Doctrine obviates the very Atonement for man’s sin.


·       As the originator of the Trinity Doctrine, it was Satan’s purpose to denigrate the Atonement by suggesting the unfairness of the Atonement by implying that it consisted ONLY of Christ’s entombment for three days and nights rather than being a form of eternal death to His former DIVINE ONLY BEING.  This is the closest Divinity could come to dying forever to His former life paralleling and paying the debt of our eternal death penalty for sin.


·       Satan’s purpose was to teach by His Trinity Doctrine that there was no sacrifice associated with the gift of the Holy Spirit—that it was merely to comfort one IN SIN.


·       Satan’s wife, Rome, Babylon, the seat of His throne, profited from the Trinity Doctrine, by keeping the truth of the Divine Nature gift of the Holy Spirit for overcoming purposes a secret for centuries.  How did she profit? She thus encouraged sin by not teaching the great sacrifice of the Son of His Divine Nature life and soul as a bequeathed gift to man FOREVER, for overcoming and regenerating man back into the image of God. She thus encouraged sin and then charged indulgence fees to forgive sins. The coffers of Rome were thus enriched. The preparation of the bride of Christ was thus retarded.


·       Satan profits in the SDA acceptance of the Trinity Doctrine in a similar way Rome does. The church now stresses justification as the sole means of salvation. This means “only believe,” and you are saved.  The church does not teach the absolute necessity of the indwelling sanctifying life of Christ’s Holy Spirit as a condition to salvation. This gives way to a cheap grace theology which encourages the church’s members to worship mammon (money) and the means of accumulating it—education.


·       Satan’s purpose—To teach that there was no sacrifice associated with the person of the Holy Spirit; that the third person existed eternally as a separated third person of the Godhead.


·       To deflect from the sacrifice of Christ at His Incarnation when He emptied Himself of His Divine Nature ONLY life and soul and bequeathed it to man as an empowerment gift of grace for the purpose of overcoming sin and regenerating man back into the image of Christ.


·       The Trinity doctrine denies that sacrifice of the Divine Nature of the Son of Man, which, at His Incarnation, laid aside His life and soul as the Holy Spirit person. "The darkness rolled away from the Saviour and from the Cross. Christ bowed His head and died. In His Incarnation He had reached the prescribed limit as a sacrifice, but not as a redeemer." E.G. White, Manuscript Releases Volume Twelve, p. 409.


·       "The Incarnation of Christ was an act of self-sacrifice; His life was one of continual self-denial. The highest glory of the love of God to man was manifested in the sacrifice of His only-begotten Son, who was the express image of His person. This is the great mystery of godliness. It is the privilege and the duty of every professed follower of Christ to have the mind of Christ. Without self-denial and cross bearing we cannot be His disciples." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Book 2, p. 185.


·       The Everlasting Testator Covenant demanded the death of the Testator in atonement for man’s eternal death penalty.  The Son must die to something eternally to meet the prescribed specification of the Everlasting Covenant Testator demands.


·       Hbr 9:16 For where a testament [is], there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.


·       Hbr 9:17 For a testament [is] of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.


·       Three days of entombment by a God that cannot die is no atonement for our penalty of sin which is eternal death.


·       The Son’s eternal death to His DIVINE ONLY state of BEING, serves as the only form of eternal death that God could engage because Divinity cannot die and Ellen White said that Divinity did not die on the cross.  So how was the Testator testament fulfilled when the Testator was the Son of God, and He was Divinity ONLY when He made that Testament.  Christ’s humanity could not atone for our sin and His Divinity did not die.  The problem is solved by accepting Ellen White’s definition of the Holy Spirit as being the life and soul of Christ and that the Son was emptied of that life and bequeathed it to us so that we could partake of His DIVINE NATURE:


·       2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.


·       The proper identity has everything to do with the personality and presence of Christ. This was to be involved in the Omega of Apostasy, as was the Alpha. Via His Divine Nature Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, Christ can indwell us for the purpose of empowering us and restoring us to His image. Without that gift, such empowerment and restoration would have been impossible.


·       "But through the power of the incarnation of Christ, God manifest in the flesh, the strength of God is revealed in gentleness and beauty. To 'as many as received him, to them gave he POWER to become the sons of God.' By this POWER we may OVERCOME OUR EVIL TENDENCIES and so modify our imperfect dispositions that the will of God may be fulfilled in us."--Letter 79, May 7, 1903, to J.A. Burden and wife. The Upward Look, 141.


God bless your understanding of His Godhead,
