For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” 1 John 5:7, 8.



In the night of October 26, 2014, the Lord gave me a vision that makes the THREE PERSON aspect of the Godhead plainer than ever before. I was shown how to make it simple and short in portraying how all who don’t believe in a THIRD PERSON to the Godhead are as antichrist as it gets. Succinctly stated, there were two persons to the Godhead before the Incarnation of the Son of God into humanity. The Incarnation consisted of God come in the flesh. That made another person for there was no God come in the flesh before the Incarnation. Scripture says that those who don’t believe God was manifest in the flesh--the humanity of Christ, are antichrist, to wit:

 

1Jo 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1Jo 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2Jo 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:


There are THREE that bear witness in heaven and there are THREE that bear witness in earth. All who do not believe these words in 1 John 5:1-7, are antichrist.


1Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the SPIRIT, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. 1 John 5:1-7.


To say that there are not three persons to the Godhead, is to say:


·       That Jesus APPEARED only as a human composed of water and blood and was NOT sired by the Holy Ghost SPIRIT.

·       It is the SPIRIT element that constitutes Christ as God come in the flesh. The Holy Ghost (Spirit) is the soul of the life of Christ.

·       Christ did not have a human father. He was sired by the Holy Ghost. It was that element that constituted Him being God come in the flesh.

·       Those who are saying that there are not THREE PERSONS TO THE GODHEAD in heaven, deny that Christ as God, came in the flesh.

·       Those who believe that Christ came ONLY in the flesh, deny the SPIRIT element of the three elements that bear witness that He was God. Thus, they deny that He is God.

·       Those who believe the truth about the Godhead, confess ALL THREE ELEMENTS--SPIRIT, WATER, BLOOD. Deny any one of these THREE elements, and one is antichrist.

·       Those who say there are only two persons to the Godhead, deny in essence that Christ was sired by the SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY GHOST, HOLY SPIRIT. Thus, whether they realize it or not, they are teaching that Christ was ONLY HUMAN, being without the Holy Ghost Spirit of God. They confess that Christ was only WATER and BLOOD--ONLY HUMAN. That is antichrist.

·       There are many professing SDA ministries which teach that there are only TWO PERSONS to the Godhead. Because of all of the above reasons, THEY ARE ANTICHRIST. BEWARE! Such teachings, persisted in, constitute blasphemy against the HOLY GHOST, which is unpardonable sin.


It is a basic principle and fundamental of our biblical faith that there is only one God. “Hear, O Israel! The LORD our God, the LORD is one!” (Deuteronomy 6:4). The unity of the Godhead cannot be questioned. God does not consist of parts. He is one. But Scripture reveals that there are, in that one divine essence, two eternal distinctions and one non-eternal person. Those distinctions are best described as Persons, known as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The two eternal persons have identical attributes, however, and therefore they are one—not merely one in mind and purpose, but one in substance. To possess all the same attributes is to be one in essential nature. The two eternal persons of the Godhead possess identical attributes. They are one in substance and one in essence, and therefore they are one God. The human non-eternal Son, has been adopted into the heavenly Godhead, and His purposes are ONE with the other two persons.


Ellen White said Christ and the Father were of one substance: "The Jews had never before heard such words from human lips, and a convicting influence attended them for it seemed that divinity flashed through humanity as Jesus said, "I and my Father are one." The words of Christ were full of deep meaning as he put forth the claim that he and the Father were of one substance, possessing the same attributes."--The Signs of the Times, Nov. 27, 1893, p. 54. {7ABC 437.3}.

 

The ONE SUBSTANCE that constitutes God is SPIRIT. God is a Spirit says Scripture:

Jhn 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.


The Bible says that the Spirit of God is the same Spirit as the Spirit of Christ:

 

Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

 

The humanity of Christ is a human priest forever:

 

Hbr 7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

 

God the Father adopted the FOREVER humanity of Christ into the Godhead of heaven:

 

 "By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin. It was Satan's purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. 'God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son.' [John 3:16]. He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only Begotten Son to become one of the human family forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word. 'Unto us a child is born unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder.' God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the 'Son of man' who shares the throne of the universe. It is the 'Son of man' whose name shall be called, 'Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the prince of Peace.' [Isa. 9:6]. The I Am is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. HE who is 'holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,' is not ashamed to call us brethren. [Heb. 7:26 2:11.] In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite love." The Desire of Ages, 25

 

The humanity of the Son of God was carried into the highest heaven as the HUMAN PERSON of the Godhead. So we have:

 

1.    The Father.

2.    The Holy Ghost of the Son’s former being as SPIRIT ONLY--The Comforter.

3.    The humanity of the Son of God that functions as a human priest FOREVER.

 

If one omits the sacrifice of the Son emptying Himself of His HOLY SPIRIT ONLY existence to become human at His Incarnation, then there would be NO ATONEMENT for man’s sins. If the Son merely returned to His former estate of being HOLY SPIRIT ONLY, that would still constitute NO ATONEMENT. The Son of God, as Testator, had to die to His former position as God/HolySpirit/Only so as to give that life to us and fulfill the conditions of the Testator’s Covenant, that something must remain dead forever to atone for our eternal death penalty--the wages of sin. For while the Testator should remain alive to His former HOLY SPIRIT/ONLY estate, the testament (atonement) would be of NO STRENGTH AT ALL while He should continue ONLY in that form of His existence. In other words, He must die to being God ALONE, and become united with human flesh (Humanity) FOREVER, else the testaments (covenant--atonement) would be of non-effect--no strength. The Testator had to die to something FOREVER, and He died to being SPIRIT ONLY FOREVER. He became an admixture THIRD PERSON of Spirit and humanity. So the atonement BEGAN at His Incarnation, and not just on the cross, because His humanity ALONE could not atone for man’s sins.

 

Heb 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

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

 

"He (Christ) suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which WAS His." Desire of Ages, p. 25 1 Cor. 11:24-265, cf. John 6:53, 54, Titus 3:5, 6.

 

What life WAS HIS, that we receive? The former life of His Holy Spirit eternal life. It was a forfeiture of that life--living in the person of that life ONLY, that paid the price for our atonement--for our wages of sin--eternal death. From the Incarnation Atonement on, the Son would exist as TWO DISTINCT PERSONS--His former Holy Ghost life, and His humanity as a human priest forever. Without this arrangement, the Testator would not be “dead” to living as Holy Spirit ONLY, and the Testator’s Covenant would be null and void--the entire Christian economy would be null and void--non-existent!

 

And that is what is wrong with the Trinity Doctrine, because that central doctrine of Roman Catholicism, totally obfuscates the Incarnation atonement. How? Why? Because that doctrine teaches that there are THREE CO-ETERNAL PERSONS TO THE GODHEAD. If there were THREE ETERNAL PERSONS TO THE GODHEAD BEFORE THE INCARNATION, then there would be FOUR PERSON after the Incarnation amalgamation of God manifesting Himself in human flesh FOREVER, because there was no eternal co-equal human party to the Godhead before the Incarnation.

 

Some ministries try to distance themselves from the Trinity Doctrine for the wrong reasons. They conclude that what is wrong with the Trinity Doctrine is that it teaches THREE PERSONS, and they conclude that there are only TWO PERSONS to the Godhead. Thus, they void the Incarnation Atonement by which a THIRD PERSON accrued to the Godhead. Both teachings do despite to what occurred at the Incarnation Atonement. The Trinity Doctrine does this by saying there were three co-eternal persons, which if true, would necessitate FOUR PERSONS after the Incarnation addition of the humanity of Christ element. The persons who teach TWO PERSONS to the Godhead, eliminate the Incarnation sacrifice whereby a THIRD PERSON was added to the Godhead by God manifesting Himself in human flesh via His Son Jesus Christ, which humanity was an INDEPENDENT PERSON from His former existence as DIVINE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY, to wit:

 

"Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

 

So the Holy Spirit is a separate, distinct, INDEPENDENT PERSON from the humanity of Christ. And were this not so, the Testator’s covenant (sacrifice) of being dead to His former DIVINE ONLY existence would not be ratified, and no atonement would have been made and the entire Christian economy would be null and void.

 

The SDA church teaches an antichrist position on the Godhead by teaching that there were THREE CO-ETERNAL PERSONS to the Godhead. That means if there were THREE PERSONS before the Incarnation, there would NEEDS BE FOUR PERSONS AFTERWARD, because the humanity of Christ became a distinct and independent person at the time of the Incarnation. So what the church is actually doing, along with all other churches that teach the Trinity Doctrine, is voiding the Testator’s Covenant, whereby the Son died to being GOD ONLY, to become a distinct human person forever--God manifested in human flesh, which resulted in a THIRD PERSON accruing to the Godhead--by adoption into the Godhead.

 

However much a shepherd may love his sheep, he loves his sons and daughters more. Jesus is not only our shepherd He is our "everlasting Father." And He says, "I know Mine own, and Mine own know Me, even as the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father." John 10:14, 15, R.V. What a statement is this!--the only-begotten Son, He who is in the bosom of the Father, He whom God has declared to be "the Man that is My fellow" (Zech. 13:7),--the communion between Him and the eternal God is taken to represent the communion between Christ and His children on the earth!”--The Desire of Ages, p. 483. {7ABC 438.4}
