The Trinity and the Nature of the Godhead
Professing Christianity -- through its convoluted teachings on the nature of YEHOVAH God -- denies that man can become God! It declares that any who believe this is possible are guilty of blasphemy. Tragically, those who accept the Trinity are kept from understanding that they were created to become literal members of the God Family, and to share in ruling the entire universe!

Today eminent scholars will say that the doctrine of the Trinity is a "cornerstone of our faith" and it must be believed for one to be saved. How can one believe in a "mystery" that cannot be understood or explained? It was something neither the Messiah nor the apostles ever mentioned. We are told by some preachers to "take it by faith" -- faith in whom? How can one trust any mere human's opinion in these matters when Almighty God Himself has not said a plain word about it? According to some, part of the evidence for the Trinity is the notion of the Virgin Birth -- a supporting pillar of modern "Christianity's" belief in the Trinity.
What About the Virgin Birth?
However, the apostle Paul does not mention the virgin birth anywhere in his writings. It would seem reasonable to assume that if Paul had known of the alleged special conditions of the Messiah’s birth that he would have mentioned them in one of his epistles. However, the opposite appears to be true! He considers Yeshua’s birth to have been natural and conventional -- with no sign of a virgin birth!
Explains Barrie Wilson --
"While the earliest gospel, Mark, had focused on the adult mission of Jesus, later ones such as Matthew and Luke claimed a special birth for Jesus. Remarkably, these were the ONLY TWO writings in the New Testament that put forward virgin birth stories. Mark did NOT mention it, nor did Paul or the Gospel of John. The idea of a virgin birth was not rooted in Jewish thought -- although there were unusual births to women well past menopause -- nor was it part of messianic expectation. The Messiah, on most views, was to be FULLY HUMAN, not a God-human hybrid. The virgin birth concept WAS GENTILE IN ORIGIN. Whatever the intent of the...writers of Luke and Matthew, the virgin birth narratives in no way singled out Jesus as unique. Roman emperors, Greek heroes, and ancient Egyptian pharaohs all claimed special births, and these parallels are now well known" (How Jesus Became Christian, p. 218).
The “virgin birth” story found in mainstream Christianity is derived from the many fables found in the religions of pagan peoples that shared the world of early Christianity. It is a matter of historical fact that there were MANY pagan, mystery religions that flourished during the time the "church fathers" canonized their "New" Testament "scripture". Mithraism was but one of those religions. Of course many of these were based in worship of a sun god. Guess where the church gets the idea for the halo or sun that surrounds the head of "Jesus" and/or Mary in many artists renderings?
The unusual importance "Christian" leaders place on Yeshua's birth may be due to the importance that was placed on the birth of Tammuz, Mithra, and other "god in the flesh" saviors in the pagan religions from which the Constantinian religion of Christianity derived many of its doctrines. These same pagan religions ALL had godly procreation as a major theme; thus, Constantinian Christianity and counterfeit Messianism -- which is actually repackaged Constantinian Christianity -- exalts the alleged godly procreation in the birth of Messiah -- even though it is irrelevant to Messianic prophecy!
The ancient origin of the virgin birth myths is outlined by Wilson --
"In ancient Egyptian times, for instance, two pharaohs had claimed special divine-human births or "theogamies." In the fifteenth century B.C., Queen Hatshepsut claimed a divine-human origin in a relief in her splendid temple, Deir el-Bahri, near the Valley of the Kings at Luxor. The God Amon is depicted as her father and Queen Ahmose as her mother. Similarly, in the fourteenth century B.C., in the magnificent Temple of Luxor, Amenhotep III is depicted as having a divine-human birth. In this instance, a sequence is presented with an ANNUNCIATION of an impending special birth; the conception between the god Amon and the human Queen Mutemwiya; the birth; and the presentation. This annunciation-birth-presentation narrative is suspiciously similar to the sequence outlined in the virgin birth story in Luke" (ibid., p. 218).
The virgin conception and virgin birth stories paved the way for the development of the God-human that is a central part of modern "Christianity." Ancient mystery religions shared similar motifs. The religious figure of the mystery cults was viewed as having a special divine-human birth, as being a God incarnate (a special Son of God) and as suffering, dying and rising to save mankind. THAT'S THE COMMON PATTERN!
Notes Barrie Wilson --
"Portraying Jesus as a figure well known to Mediterranean audiences represented a CONVENIENT WAY of speaking about him in a manner that involved no references to Judaism or to the Jewish Messiah. It was TIMELY to substitute this divine-human hybrid image of Jesus for the older [and CORRECT] view of Jesus as a HUMAN Messiah" (How Jesus Became Christian, p. 219).
It is notable that two of the only religions that anciently did not have a virgin birth account is the true Monotheistic Messianic faith (the Ebionites) and Judaism of which the true Monotheistic Messianic faith was originally a sect.
For centuries, since the dawn of time, Satan worked tirelessly to promote his false, Babylonish religion. He finally succeeded with his final work -- the Beastly religious system or great harlot that seduces and spiritually fornicates with much of the world's population -- Constantinian Christianity. It is with this grand achievement -- the spiritual great harlot -- that Satan may finally obtain the worship he has always desired. Using Constantinian Christianity, Satan has pulled many people away from worship of the TRUE God and the FULLY HUMAN MAN chosen by YEHOVAH God -- the Messiah Yeshua.
Can a "Mere" Man Be the Savior?
Now that we have clearly seen that the Messiah did not pre-exist his human birth, nor was born of a virgin impregnated by the spirit of YEHOVAH God, the question arises -- could a mere man be our savior?
In a book entitled The Day God Died, the author refers to the Messiah -- whom he assumes to be the Creator God of the Hebrew scriptures -- having "emptied himself" to become a human being who could die for our sins (Philippians 2:7). "Although Christ was human, He was also God" is what has been ASSUMED. And not just any God, but the CREATOR GOD of all. The generally accepted belief by many is that this Creator is the One who died for us.
The assumption continues: "A mere man who had not been God would not be qualified to die for all mankind. Only the Creator could be acceptable as a sacrifice to die for the billions of people who have been born on earth." However, the Bible shows the Messiah was a FULLY HUMAN MAN who lived a sinless life and died for the sins of Israel ONLY and to become the savior of his Father's people Israel.
The Bible does NOT say the Messiah pre-existed as a God. Rather, it shows that he was born of a human woman and a human man. Yeshua was a MAN -- although the most special human being ever to be born. YEHOVAH God chose this human being to be the savior to die for all of Israel.
To say that YEHOVAH God our Savior could not save those of us of Israel in this fashion is to severely limit Him -- and you CANNOT LIMIT YEHOVAH GOD! His great plan of salvation for His people Israel can be carried out any way He chooses!
Although each one of us of Israel is a mere mortal -- a mere human being -- we are VERY IMPORTANT and precious in YEHOVAH's eyes. Having Sons and Daughters of Israel born into the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God is the whole purpose for creation. So don't think that the Messiah as a human was not important to YEHOVAH God! And don't think that YEHOVAH God could not use the death of His "mere" human "only begotten Son" (John 3:16) to be an acceptable sacrifice to pay for the sins of ALL HUMAN Israel (Romans 5:18).
The Creator can do whatever He wants. His thoughts are not our thoughts, and His ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8).
How the Messiah Became Our Savior
Yeshua the Messiah was born as a NORMAL squalling HUMAN baby! How, then, did he come to be the Savior? There are two major KEYS to remember in grasping this concept:
1) The Messiah had a full measure of YEHOVAH's holy spirit from birth, unlike any other human being.
2) YEHOVAH God the Father communicated with the Messiah via his human parents, the written word (Hebrew scriptures), and possibly by divine communication directly in dreams, visions or some other means.
The Messiah had to grow in grace and knowledge just like we must. He studied the scriptures that prophesied of a coming Messiah (Luke 24:44). He had to lead a sinless life in order to be the perfect sacrifice. Through much effort and CONSTANT CONTACT with YEHOVAH God, the Messiah finally reached the point of dying as he hung from the tree on the Mount of Olives. And then he died from the horrendous stoning he received -- the PERFECT sacrifice for Israel (Hebrews 5:7-9; John 19:30).
Yeshua the Messiah was the ONLY human being who ever lived a perfect sinless life. As a result he was able to die for all of Israel and be the PERFECT Savior. To think that the Savior had to first be God before he could qualify to die as a sacrifice for sin is to NOT understand that the Creator God can CHOOSE His Savior any way that He wants -- our preconceived notions have absolutely no merit!
Can a human being of Israel -- even one who is sinless -- be our Savior? Yes -- if YEHOVAH God says so! This understanding leads to an amazing conclusion:
If I Were God
Many people who think Yeshua the Messiah was God before he became human in order to lead a sinless life have a secret thought: "Sure he led a sinless life -- after all, HE WAS GOD!" The implication to this line of reasoning is that ANYONE could obey YEHOVAH's laws if they were originally God! "If I were originally God, then living a perfect life might not be too tough. But, since I was never God, then it's no wonder I have trouble obeying God -- even if I have God's holy spirit within me!"
However, if the Messiah was not a pre-existing God, then he was a human being -- JUST LIKE YOU AND ME (Hebrews 4:15). Just as he labored and succeeded in overcoming trials and temptations of the human existence, SO CAN WE! So how did the Messiah do it? However he did it, can we also do it? The secret to overcoming and leading a SINLESS LIFE is, of course, YEHOVAH's HOLY SPIRIT! The Creator God gave His spirit -- His essence and active force -- to the Messiah, just as He gives it to the Elect of Israel today.
Yeshua the Messiah -- a HUMAN BEING -- used this holy spirit -- this POWER from YEHOVAH God -- to build a CLOSE RELATIONSHIP with his Heavenly Father. This power is also available to any other human being of Israel that YEHOVAH God has called at this time.
Isn't this truly encouraging and wonderful beyond words? The Messiah didn't gain access to the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God because he was once God. The opposite is true: The Messiah has gained salvation because he was a HUMAN BEING imbued with the power of the Creator God's holy spirit and had a close relationship with the ONE God! This is GOOD NEWS for those of us of Israel as future Sons and Daughters of YEHOVAH God. We have every opportunity to join our elder brother, Yeshua the Messiah, in the ONE God's Kingdom. We can reign as kings and priests under YEHOVAH God and His Messiah when they take over the reigns of this world's governments.
Is the Holy Spirit a Person?
Is the holy spirit a person, just like YEHOVAH God the Father and Yeshua the Messiah -- as the doctrine of the Trinity teaches? Let's examine the plain, clear testimony of the Bible to see what YEHOVAH God's holy spirit really is.
FIRST, it is the POWER of YEHOVAH God. "Not by might, nor by power [of humans], but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts" (Zechariah 4:6). "I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and judgment, and of might..." declared the prophet Micah (Micah 3:8).
SECOND, it is the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear (deep reverence and respect -- not craven fear) of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2).
THIRD, it is a gift. After baptism, you are to receive "the gift of the holy spirit" (Acts 2:38). It is poured out. "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh" (Acts 2:17). "...On the Gentiles [Israelites of the Diaspora] also was poured out the gift of the holy spirit" (Acts 10:45).
FOURTH, to be effective the holy spirit must be stirred up. "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God," Paul reminded the young evangelist Timothy (II Timothy 1:7).
FIFTH, the spirit of YEHOVAH God can be quenched (I Thessalonians 5:19).
SIXTH, it is the begetting power of YEHOVAH God (Matthew 1:18; Romans 8:9).
SEVENTH, it is YEHOVAH's guarantee to us that He will fulfill His promise to us (Ephesians 1:14).
EIGHTH, it sheds the love of YEHOVAH God abroad in our hearts (Romans 5:5).
NINTH, it must be renewed (Titus 3:5-6).
Notice that in all of these scriptures there is not one characteristic even implying a "person." Does a person do any of these things? Is a person "poured," "quenched," "renewed"? Does a person live IN someone else or live IN people's hearts?
If the holy spirit was a person, the Messiah prayed to the wrong individual. Throughout the four Gospels, we find the Messiah speaking to YEHOVAH God -- NOT the holy spirit -- as his Father.
The apostle Paul would probably be considered a blasphemer by many Trinitarians today, because in his greetings to the churches he neglected to mention the holy spirit! In his introduction to the Romans, he represents himself as an apostle of YEHOVAH God the Father and the Messiah -- but nothing is said about any third person.
He also neglects to mention the holy spirit in the greetings of the rest of his letters. His standard greeting is: "Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 1:3). The same greeting is repeated in II Corinthians 1:3, Galatians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2, Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, I Thessalonians 1:1, II Thessalonians 1:2, I Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4 and Philemon 1:3. All of these greetings are without variation -- the holy spirit is consistently LEFT OUT (a great oversight -- indeed blasphemy, provided the Trinity doctrine is correct)!
Only in II Corinthians 13:14 is the holy spirit mentioned with YEHOVAH God and the Messiah -- and there only in connection with communion or fellowship. The holy spirit IS NOT the third member of the Godhead.
You can search the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and you will find no such Bible teaching with regard to the holy spirit. The Bible does not teach that the holy spirit is a third member of the God family or of a Trinity.
This is not a prejudiced anti-trinitarian opinion. It is a fact that is recognized even by Trinitarian theologians!
Discussing the evidence for the doctrine of the Trinity in the Bible, Dr. W. N. Clarke, writes: "The New Testament begins the work, but does not finish it; for it contains no similar teachings [like John 1:1-18, concerning the divinity of the Messiah], with regard to the Holy Spirit. The unique nature and mission, of Christ, are traced to a ground in the being of God; but similar ground for the divineness of the Spirit is nowhere shown. Thought on the New Testament is never directed to that end. Thus, the Scriptures take the first step toward a doctrine of essential trinity, or threeness in the being of one God, but they do not take that second step by which alone the doctrine could be completed" (An Outline of Christian Theology, p. 168) (author's emphasis).
Theologians need to recognize that there is no biblical proof for the divinity or personality of the spirit. In order to arrive at a doctrine of the Trinity, they must go outside of the Bible to develop an incomplete doctrine, which is false.
Karl Barth, one of the most noted theologians of the 20th century, admits that the church has gone beyond the Bible to arrive at its doctrine of the Trinity.
"The Bible lacks the express declaration that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are of equal essence and therefore in an equal sense of God Himself. And the other express declaration is also lacking that God is God thus only thus, i.e., as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These two express declarations which go beyond the witness of the Bible are twofold content of the church doctrine of the Trinity" (Doctrine of the Word of God, p. 437).
Since, as theologians recognize, the Bible is not the source of the Trinity doctrine, how can they square it with the Bible teachings, that inspired Scripture should be the source of doctrine? (II Timothy 3:16).
The answer is, they cannot square it with the Bible. They must freely admit the painful facts.
The Spirit of YEHOVAH God in the Bible
The personality of the Messiah is thoroughly provable from the Bible, but there is no such proof for a personality of the holy spirit. "The OT [Old Testament] clearly does not envisage God's spirit as a person, neither in the strictly philosophical sense, nor in the Semitic sense. God's spirit is simply God's Power. If it is sometimes represented as being distinct from God, it is because the breath of Yahweh acts exteriorly (Isa. 48:16; 63:11; 32:15)." So say the authors of the New Catholic Encyclopedia.
But let them continue:
"Very rarely do the OT writers attribute to God's spirit emotions or intellectual activity (Isa. 63:10; Wis. 1:3-7). When such expressions are used, they are mere figures of speech that are explained by the facts that the ruah [Hebrew word for 'spirit'] was regarded also as the seat of intellectual acts and feeling (Gen. 41:8). Neither is there found in the OT or in rabbinical literature the notion that God's spirit is an intermediary being between God and the world. This activity is proper to the angels, although to them is ascribed some of the activity that elsewhere is ascribed to the spirit of God" (New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. XIII, p. 574).
In the Old Testament, YEHOVAH's spirit is pictured as His power. These theologians also recognize that when the spirit is spoken of as a person or in a personal way, the Bible writer is merely personifying the spirit, as he would wisdom or any other attribute, without the intent of declaring such personification a person or a separate being of the Godhead.
Now, what about the New Testament? They say: "Although the NT [New Testament] concepts of the Spirit of God are largely a continuation of those of the OT, in the NT there is a gradual revelation that the Spirit of God is a person."
But this would be true only if you are armed with a preconceived notion that God is a Trinity. We will see there are only a few scriptures that can even remotely be construed as presenting the spirit as a person, and in each case only as the result of a grammatical misunderstanding.
But again, let us let the New Catholic Encyclopedia continue. "The majority of NT texts reveal God's spirit as something, not someone; this is especially seen in the parallelism between the spirit and the power of God."
Though theologians would like for the Bible to say that the spirit is a person, they must admit that the majority of the scriptures connected with the topic show that it is not someone, but something. Even the personification of the spirit is not proof of its personality.
"When a quasi-personal activity is ascribed to God's spirit, e.g., speaking, hindering, desiring, dwelling, (Acts 8:29; 16:7; Rom. 8:9), one is not justified in concluding immediately that in these passages God's spirit is regarded as a Person; the same expressions are used in regard to rhetorically personified things or abstract ideas (see Rom. 6:6; 7:17). Thus, the context of the phrase 'blasphemy against the spirit' (Mt. 12:31; cf. Mt. 12:28; Lk. 11:20) shows that reference is being made to the power of God [the Father]" (New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. XIII, p. 575).
After such admissions, it is almost inconceivable that any theologian could still teach that the spirit is a person. Yet, some do!
A Lesson in Greek Grammar
The one section of the scripture that most theologians believe describes the spirit as a person is resolved by a grammar lesson in the Greek language. In the Greek language, like the Romance languages (Italian, Spanish, French and others), every noun possesses gender; that is, it is masculine, feminine or neuter. The gender of a word has nothing to do with whether it is really masculine or feminine; it is a grammatical tool.
Most Trinitarian theologians use the Gospel of John, Chapters 14, 15 and 16, as proof of their theory that the spirit is a person. Here the Messiah is recorded as referring to the spirit as "the Comforter." The pronoun "he" is used in connection with the word "comforter" -- parakletos -- however, the reason for the use of the personal pronoun "he" is for grammatical, not theological, or spiritual reasons!
All pronouns in Greek must agree in gender with the word to which they refer. Therefore, the pronoun "he" is used when referring to the spirit as the parakletos or "Comforter." The other New Testament writers use the word pneuma, which means "breath" or "spirit." This is the Greek equivalent of ruah, the Hebrew word for "spirit" used in the Old Testament. Pneuma is a grammatically neuter word and is always represented by the pronoun "it."
However, the translators of the King James Version, being swayed by the doctrine of the Trinity, have generally mistranslated the pronouns referring to pneuma as masculine. One Instance where they did not mistranslate, is found in Romans 8:16. "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God."
John's use of the parakletos is NO PROOF the spirit is a person. For if the simple gender of a noun were the basis for the personality of the spirit, then the spirit changed gender from the Old to the New Testament. The Hebrew word for "spirit" in the Old Testament can be found in the feminine gender in a majority of cases and in a masculine sense less often.
The fact that the word "spirit" is feminine in the Hebrew has led some theologians to believe that the spirit was a feminine being of the Godhead. They believe in a Trinity of the Father, the Mother and the Son. Interestingly enough, the Trinitarians, who used the same kind of ploy to prove that the spirit was a masculine being, are condemned by their own belief!
The Holy Spirit -- YEHOVAH's Begettal Power
What is the spirit? As we saw earlier, theologians admit that the spirit of YEHOVAH God is the power of YEHOVAH God. They have no reason to believe otherwise -- unless they have a preconceived idea of a Trinity!
The Apostle Paul plainly taught this vital scriptural truth in Romans 8:16. "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we [of Israel] are the children of God." Paul did not mean this in some sentimental sort of way, as he goes on to show in the next verse. "And if the children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ..."
Paul declares that Yeshua the Messiah is the heir of all things in Hebrews 1:2. We of Israel, then, have the opportunity, if we have YEHOVAH's spirit in our minds, to inherit all things along with the Messiah.
The spirit of YEHOVAH God unites with our minds, and we of Israel are begotten (or conceived) again -- this time spiritually, not as we originally were physically. We then become a new person.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us [of Israel] again unto the lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the Dead" (I Peter 1:3). Verse 23 says "Being begotten again, not corruptible seed, but of the incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever."
The holy spirit impregnates those of us of Israel with YEHOVAH's nature. That spiritual begettal imbues us with the nature and mind of YEHOVAH God. Throughout our Christian lives, we continue to grow and to develop in the understanding and mind of YEHOVAH God until we of Israel are finally born into the God family and made immortal at the second appearance of the Messiah on this earth (I Corinthians 15:49-52).
How can we obtain this spirit? The Apostle Peter gave the answer on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2). When Peter was asked at the end of his sermon what to do, he answered: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you [of Israel] in the name of Jesus Christ for remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [spirit]" (Acts 2:38).
Here again, we can see why the Father, the Son and the holy spirit are mentioned in the "baptismal formula" in Matthew 28:19. YEHOVAH God the Father is the One who brings us to repentance. Yeshua the Messiah is the one who died so we can be forgiven and cleansed of our sins. The holy spirit is the power by which YEHOVAH God the Father, begets us.
How plain the truth of the Bible is. The holy spirit is the power of YEHOVAH God. It is NOT a person. It is the power by which we of Israel are begotten that we might become sons of YEHOVAH God.
The Godhead Is a Family
The reader has probably at some time gazed at the sky on a clear night. The natural reaction is to be awestruck by the panorama of seemingly countless stars. King David recorded his response to such an experience: “When I consider your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained; what is man, that You are mindful of him? And the son of man, that You visit him?” (Psalm 8:3-4). This king of Israel realized his utter insignificance in comparison to the vast universe -- and the One who created it. David marveled that, despite this great difference, YEHOVAH God is “mindful of” -- concerned with -- His people Israel.
The true God is not a distant, uninvolved Creator, passively observing His Creation from afar. The words of former Prime Minister of Britain Sir Winston Churchill correctly express that YEHOVAH God has “a purpose being worked out here below.” We will now explain the fundamental elements of YEHOVAH’s Master Plan -- His supreme purpose for His people Israel -- and where you fit in!
As the reader will learn, this plan is inseparably linked to the truth regarding the nature of YEHOVAH God -- and represents your potential as one of Israel created in YEHOVAH’s image. This is a potential that the Trinitarian god precludes. It limits YEHOVAH God and blocks the minds of those of Israel from learning why they were born!
The span of YEHOVAH’s Plan with His people Israel encompasses 7,000 years. Cut off from YEHOVAH God by sin (Isaiah 59:1-2), Israelites down through the ages have believed the lies of the god of this world -- Satan -- starting 6,000 years ago with Eve. While few have understood this, more have correctly understood at least some little of the verses describing the Messiah's coming 1,000-year Reign, to begin at his appearance at the end of the age (Revelation 20:4-6). But they know nothing of YEHOVAH God allotting 6,000 years, or six millennial days of a “seven-day week,” to Adamic man’s rule, under Satan, prior to the seventh 1,000-year “day.” We are very near the end of the “sixth day.”
Let’s understand! The Bible states, “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (II Peter 3:8; Psalm 90:4). Of course, most are “ignorant” of almost everything that the Bible teaches.
But you can know!
Adamic man (under the invisible sway of Satan) has been given six “days,” or 6,000 years, to try his own ways, governments, philosophies, value systems, forms of education and religions, including devising his own gods. Then, under the influence of Satan, he has practiced sin and disobedience to YEHOVAH’s commands for all this time. He has then tried to treat all of the ill effects this has brought on, instead of the cause, which is the breaking of YEHOVAH’s commandments. YEHOVAH God is allowing Adamic man to learn hard, bitter lessons. The masses, who have never known the precious truth of YEHOVAH God, must learn that their own ways do not work!
The Psalmist wrote, “…for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (139:14). But Adamic human beings were made incomplete.
Genesis 2 records the account of Adamic man’s physical creation. Adam was created so that he looked like -- appeared like -- YEHOVAH God in physical form and shape. Though physically complete, Adam was spiritually incomplete. A vitally important spiritual component was missing.
Notice Genesis 2:7: “…God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Man is made of physical matter -- flesh. While not composed of spirit as is YEHOVAH God, we saw that he is fashioned -- formed -- in the “image and likeness” of YEHOVAH God.
However, the most important difference between the mankind of Genesis 1:26 and Adam in Genesis 2:7 is that Adam received the Breath of YEHOVAH God in his nostrils. Salvation requires that the individual Israelite believes YEHOVAH God and that belief is a function of the indwelling spirit, NOT of the natural flesh -- as the Messiah said to Nicodemus "what is spirit is spirit." Hence there was no point in the Messiah dying for people who do not have the indwelling spirit and hence no ability to comprehend and believe the things of the spirit.
Some take the view that, on a weight of evidence basis, there is more to say that Adam (as we use the word) was the first spiritual man, but not the first biological man. In other words, YEHOVAH God took one man from the Genesis 1 creation and breathed into him the breath of life. “And man became a living soul” -- (Genesis 2:7). The word “became” is consistently used in a manner showing that the subject became something that it had not been before.
Philo the Judahite understood the spiritual component of "the Breath of life" when he wrote:
"But he [Moses] asserts that the FORMATION of the individual man [Adam], perceptible by the external senses is A COMPOSITION OF EARTHY SUBSTANCE, AND DIVINE SPIRIT. For that body [of Adam] was created by the Creator [YEHOVAH God] taking a lump of clay, and fashioning the human form out of it; but that the soul proceeds from NO created thing at all, but from the Father and Ruler of all things.
"For when he [Moses] uses the expression, 'He breathed into,' etc., he [Moses] MEANS NOTHING ELSE THAN THE DIVINE SPIRIT proceeding from that happy and blessed nature [YEHOVAH God], sent to take up its habitation here on earth [in Adam and his descendants], FOR THE ADVANTAGE OF OUR [ISRAELITE] RACE, in order that, even if man is mortal according to that portion of him which is visible, he may at all events be [eventually] IMMORTAL according to that portion which is invisible; and for this reason, one may properly say that man is on the boundaries of a better and an immortal nature [after the resurrection], partaking of each as far as it is necessary for him; and that he [man -- descendants of Adam -- Israelites] was born at the same time, both mortal and immortal.
"Mortal as to his body, but immortal [eventually] as to his intellect" (The Works of Philo, translated by C. D. Yonge. "On the Creation, XLVI (134-135)).
Continuing in his discussion of the Breath of Life, Philo makes the following comments:
"...for there must be three things, that which breathes in, that which receives what is breathed in, and that which is breathed in. Now that which breathes in IS GOD, that which receives what is breathed in is THE MIND [of Adam], and that which is breathed in is THE SPIRIT. What then is collected from these three things? A UNION OF THREE takes place, through God extending THE POWER, which proceeds from Himself THROUGH THE SPIRIT, which is the middle term, as far as the subject.
"Why does He [YEHOVAH God] do this, except that we may thus derive A PROPER NOTION [idea, belief] of Him? Since HOW could the soul have perceived God if He [YEHOVAH God] had not inspired it, and touched it according to His power? For human intellect would not have dared to mount up to such a height as to lay claim to THE NATURE OF GOD, if God Himself had not drawn it up to Himself, as far as was possible for the mind of man to be drawn up, and if He had not FORMED it according to those powers which can be comprehended" (ibid., "Allegorical Interpretation, I, XIII (37-38))
From Adam to Abraham, Adam’s pure line contained the breath of spiritual life (see Job 33:4), so where did the people come from who did not have the breath of life? These men and women originated from Genesis 1. Through Abraham and Sarah, YEHOVAH God established the basis for Abraham’s seed to become the Sons of YEHOVAH God (John 1:12). YEHOVAH was making a new beginning with Abraham. None other than the seed of Abraham, through the son of promise, Isaac, has this opportunity or potential. Abraham’s seven other sons did not have this potential -- because they were born prior to Isaac. The descendants of Isaac were begotten of the spirit from their conception. This is why those among Isaac’s descendants who believe are regarded as being anointed by the spirit (Galatians 3:16).
Paul is able to declare, "now He which stablishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us is God who has also sealed us and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts" (2 Corinthians 1:21, 22). In 1 Corinthians 2:7-16 Paul, confirming this, tells the brethren (kinsmen of the same womb of Sarah) that they have not received the spirit of the world, but the spirit of YEHOVAH God (verse 12). He says that through this we might know (or comprehend) the things that are freely given to us, (the brethren), of YEHOVAH God. He goes on to further declare that the “natural” man (those not born of Isaac’s line or of the non-Adamic line) cannot receive the things of the spirit of YEHOVAH God. He affirms Yeshua’s statement that anyone who is not begotten of the original sowing (in the womb of Sarah) cannot see the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God.
So Adam was physical but had the "breath of life" that gave him the ability to see the things of YEHOVAH God. However, he breathed air, and required food and water. Without any of these, he could not survive.
Though Adam was made in the form and image of YEHOVAH God, there was an obvious -- and big -- difference between him and YEHOVAH God. Adam was made of the dust. He was flesh (Genesis 2:7). Since YEHOVAH is a spirit, He is made -- composed -- of spirit.
A vitally important parallel exists between Adam and the Messiah. It offers another clue to YEHOVAH’s purpose. Scripture makes the comparison this way: “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [the Messiah] was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward [at the Resurrection] that which is spiritual. The first man [Adam] is of the earth, earthy: the second man [the Messiah] is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also [by the Resurrection] that are heavenly. And as we [converted, spirit-led people of Israel] have borne the image of the earthy [made of flesh], we shall also bear the image of the heavenly [be later composed of spirit]” (I Corinthians 15:45-49).
Paul’s inspired statement starts with a reference to Genesis 2:7. Notice the phrase there “And so it was written…” This is New Testament verification of the Genesis account! The apostle Paul knew that Adam “was made” by YEHOVAH God, that this did happen. He both believed and understood the Old Testament account.
The goal of a Christian Israelite is to receive a spirit body at the resurrection -- to “bear the image of the heavenly.” Just as YEHOVAH God created animals -- elephants, dogs, cats, horses, etc. -- to reproduce after their kind, He (YHVH) created Adamic man after the God kind!
YEHOVAH God gave Adam and Eve “dominion” over the earth (Genesis 1:26). This meant that the Adamic man would be able and need to learn and produce -- to generate -- much knowledge as he subjugated the planet.
YEHOVAH designed Adamic human beings with minds that could create, devise, reason, observe and experiment. Through this inherent ability to reason, physical knowledge could be processed. This was good and right, as long as it was used within the framework that YEHOVAH intended.
All knowledge falls into two categories: (1) the physical knowledge of how to work with matter and physical things, and (2) the spiritual knowledge necessary for people to develop personal relationships with both YEHOVAH God and their fellow Adamic man. All knowledge is either physical or spiritual.
Adam and Eve’s problem was in reasoning that every kind of knowledge necessary for salvation could be obtained on their own, through experimentation. Once they deviated from YEHOVAH’s intended way, they had no hope of reaching the destination that He purposed for them -- and neither does Israel, which followed their choice. Once Adam and Eve accepted the wrong premise as their starting point -- that they could reason everything out themselves -- they were destined to fail!
The accumulation of vast amounts of knowledge over millennia has not changed -- and could never change -- the fact that mankind is headed for the wrong destination. Curiously, in its quest for ever more knowledge, but with the Trinity as its chosen god, so many of Israel have been forced to conclude that they must exist through life devoid of the most important knowledge -- that about YEHOVAH God!
Every sophisticated or technical device or product comes with an instruction manual. Without this, the owner would find the object useless. He would not know how to properly operate it. Nor could he repair or maintain it.
YEHOVAH God gave an Instruction Manual to His people Israel -- the Holy Bible -- that contains vital -- essential -- revealed knowledge, otherwise unattainable. Unlike the modern system of education, it teaches how to live, not just how to earn a living. It explains history, prophecy, important knowledge of doctrine and thousands of other points and principles that govern every aspect of life.
Now understand. The Bible was never intended to contain all knowledge, just that which is necessary for salvation -- knowledge that the Israelite man could not discover through human reason, experimentation, analysis and observation. The Bible was not intended to teach Israel how to design marvels of engineering, telescopes that can probe the outer reaches of the universe or computers that can perform trillions of calculations per second.
Adamic men were given the capacity to reason out and design these and many other highly complex, technical inventions. Education in physical knowledge is important. Here is why. Most of earth’s population live in abject poverty, disease, filth, squalor and illiteracy. They lack the most fundamental education that the developed Israelite nations enjoy. Basic education can lead to physical improvements and advancements for civilization.
But surely, 6,000 years of misery, unhappiness and every conceivable evil, ill and woe that the Adamic line has suffered ought to tell those of Israel that they should carefully heed the Instruction Book of revealed spiritual knowledge that it has ignored. Yet, the Israelite man continues to reject YEHOVAH’s spiritual revelation.
However, cut off from the right channel and path of spiritually understood cause and effect and from YEHOVAH’s revealed Law, the Adamic man still possesses the power of physical, human reasoning, which, sadly, has led to weapons of mass destruction and terror, cruelty, slavery, repression, pollution, crime, religious confusion -- including a host of invented gods -- and so much more.
Hence, Adamic man’s misery and woes compound and mount at every turn -- and all the religions of the non-Israelite world, with their vast array of false gods, have not been able to solve even pre-Adamic mankind’s most basic problems.
But remember, YEHOVAH God’s process of spiritual creation is still in progress. It is not complete! Only the FEW of Israel have been shown the purpose for human Adamic life -- why the Adamic existence.
Let’s continue examining the bigger picture of YEHOVAH’s purpose for His people Israel.
Many wonder about YEHOVAH’s overall Plan and whether there is a purpose for Adamic life beyond the present physical realm. Job asked, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). YEHOVAH inspired him to answer his own question: “All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. You shall call, and I will answer You: You will have a desire to the work of Your hands” (vs. 14-15).
Job acknowledged that he was the “work of God’s hands.” He knew YEHOVAH God “desired” a certain purpose that involved a process at work within him. He understood that one day YEHOVAH God would “call” him from the grave, and that he would “answer,” thus fulfilling his purpose.
This is important knowledge, revealed by YEHOVAH God. Job could not otherwise have known it.
YEHOVAH God is at work in those of Israel He has called. He is fashioning, molding, and building within them His very character. Now notice what Isaiah recorded: “But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and we all [of Israel] are the work of your hand” (Isaiah 64:8).
Tragically, many of Israel fight YEHOVAH’s purpose, thinking they know better than YEHOVAH God Almighty who made them. They refuse to be told what to do and to be clay in YEHOVAH’s hands. This was Adam’s problem.
Isaiah also wrote, “Woe unto him that strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to Him that fashions it, What make You? Or Your work, He [YEHOVAH God] has no hands?” (Isaiah 45:9).
Most people have absolutely no idea that YEHOVAH God actively works within those of Israel He has called -- or what He is doing when He does. Again, this is spiritually revealed knowledge, unattainable to all whom YEHOVAH God has not called to understand His truth (John 6:44, 65; 17:17). But Israel -- due to the "breath of life" -- had some knowledge of YEHOVAH’s true purpose, and would have learned more if she had remained faithful. Other gods swept her away into error.
The true Christian Israelite increases in understanding and “grow[s] in grace, and knowledge” (II Peter 3:18). He endures a lifetime of overcoming, because he is in training for a great purpose. Those of Israel whom YEHOVAH has called understand that “…he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13).
The apostle Paul understood how YEHOVAH works in Christian Israelites. He recognized that salvation (Romans 6:23), and even faith to receive it, are free gifts. They cannot be earned. But this does not mean YEHOVAH God is not actively working (requiring good works) in His people Israel, as He reproduces Himself.
Consider: “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. for we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we [of Israel] should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:8-10).
Did you catch the phrase Paul used -- “we are His workmanship”? What could be plainer? YEHOVAH God has a Purpose at work within each person of Israel!
Paul continued by saying that Christian Israelites must “walk” in “good works.” The false notion of “just believing in Jesus” thwarts YEHOVAH’s Supreme Purpose of fashioning people through careful workmanship, like a potter with clay. Salvation, though of “grace…through faith,” involves GOOD WORKS. This means that salvation is a process and not something that happens immediately upon “giving your heart to [the traditional] Jesus.”
Notice this about the process at work within those of Israel YEHOVAH God calls: “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:23-24). II Corinthians 5:17 puts it this way: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature…” Those of Israel whom YEHOVAH God is working with are literally a new creation!
The one who serves YEHOVAH God is being transformed in his mind. He yields his own will and seeks to replace it with YEHOVAH’s will in all matters. He seeks to please YEHOVAH God -- not self!
All of this is lost on those who worship the god who declares that “works” -- including commandment-keeping -- have no place in Christianity. They are left blind to YEHOVAH God’s marvelous purpose.
Each person of Israel that YEHOVAH God calls is presented with the same choice that Adam and Eve faced -- yielding to YEHOVAH God and His government or yielding to Satan and his nature.
Just as little children grow up to look like their physical parents, so also do YEHOVAH’s children slowly take on the spiritual likeness of their Parent, in holy, righteous character -- “divine nature” (II Peter 1:4). Peter described Christian Israelites as “partakers of the divine nature” -- the nature of YEHOVAH God. There is the physical nature of creation, human nature and YEHOVAH’s nature. YEHOVAH is re-fashioning corrupt, carnal human Israelite nature into wonderful, glorious, perfect, holy, spiritual character -- His divine nature!
Character is understanding -- knowing -- right from wrong and doing what is right instead of what is wrong! YEHOVAH God reveals what is right, but it is through the power of free moral agency, deciding to do what is right, that righteous character is built.
Character is consciously choosing the right way, against resistance. It is not the easy way. It is swimming against the current, rather than drifting lazily in the direction it is flowing. It is building love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance (self-control) -- all the fruit of the holy spirit -- wisdom, knowledge, understanding, humility and more. This takes time, because character is built through EXPERIENCE.
YEHOVAH God is now actively working in the minds of only those few of Israel who have come to know Him and who have His holy spirit within them (Acts 2:38). Adamic humans are not born with YEHOVAH’s character. And YEHOVAH God cannot instantly infuse them with it. Character must be developed over a lifetime.
YEHOVAH God has perfect character in all respects. He is love (I John 4:8, 16). Love is the fulfilling of the law (Romans 13:10; I John 5:3), which requires yielding to YEHOVAH God. It is outgoing concern for others, putting them first -- ahead of self-interests.
Satan’s nature is selfish, incoming and concerned only with what is best for self and how to get more for self. This is the attitude he injected into Adam and Eve when they ate of the forbidden fruit. He wanted them blinded to their awesome potential.
Are you seeing that, while YEHOVAH God made Adamic man in the form and shape, physically, of Himself, it DOES NOT END THERE?
You of Israel were created to become like YEHOVAH God -- to build perfect, holy, righteous character. Grasp this astonishing truth. YEHOVAH is reproducing Himself in His people Israel! Just as you are the child of parents, and possibly have children of your own, YEHOVAH God is your Parent. In this life, YEHOVAH begins to spiritually re-form and re-shape those of Israel He calls -- His children. His Purpose is to build within them His nature.
So then, YEHOVAH God is reproducing Himself in those of Israel who have received His holy spirit. He is creating children that will look and BE just like Him! To build the very character of YEHOVAH God is the reason you of Israel exist! But there is more to understand.
The book of Hebrews reveals YEHOVAH’s awesome purpose for His people Israel with crystal clarity. The context begins in Chapter 1. Watch as the astounding picture of YEHOVAH’s Plan as it unfolds.
First, understand that YEHOVAH God created angels to be “ministering spirits” to assist the “heirs of salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). This is their role within YEHOVAH’s Plan. Angels are NOT offered membership in the Family of YEHOVAH God. This is why Satan (as a fallen angel) so hates the idea that puny, fleshly Adamic man can receive what he has never been offered nor can ever achieve.
Paul quotes from two places in the Psalms: “For unto which of the angels said He at any time, You are My Son, this day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to Me a Son?” (Hebrews 1:5). (Hebrews 2:5 describes the earth under the “subjection of angels” now, but makes clear that these angels will not rule over “the world to come.”)
YEHOVAH God has never said any of this to an angel!
Paul then quotes from another Psalm, explaining what has always been YEHOVAH’s Purpose: “Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom…” (Psalm 1:8). A scepter is a rod or staff used as a symbol of rulership or authority -- and in His kingdom it is YEHOVAH God who has all power.
Finally, Paul re-frames the same question about angels: “But to which of the angels said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool? Are they not all MINISTERING SPIRITS, sent forth to minister for them [of Israel] who shall be heirs of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:13-14).
This sets the stage for what we must understand! Let’s really comprehend the truly awesome future that YEHOVAH God has prepared for all those of Israel who serve Him.
This amazing series of verses continues in chapter 2 -- and builds in understanding and impact. Paul quotes Psalm 8:4-6. As we have seen, David asked the all-important question, “What is [Adamic] man, that You are mindful of him?” (Hebrews 2:6). Since YEHOVAH God is eternal, and sits over the entire universe and has all power under His control, no wonder David asked, and Paul repeated, this question.
The astounding answer is in the next verse: “You made him [Adamic man] a little lower than the angels; You crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of Your Hands.”
Paul further explains that YEHOVAH God plans TO GIVE IMMENSE POWER and authority to His Sons: “You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him” (Hebrews 2:8). This has not yet happened -- but soon will, at the return of YEHOVAH God and the Messiah!
When YEHOVAH says that “all things” will be put under the feet of Adamic man, this is what He means. The vast universe, with all of its quadrillions of stars and one trillion galaxies, will be put under the authority of men of Israel who have been born into the Family of YEHOVAH God. In fact, the Moffatt translation renders the Greek word for “all things” as “the universe.”
This is staggering knowledge! -- wonderful beyond description! Take time to truly grasp it. Savor what can be your future. It is the reason you exist -- it explains why you of Israel were born!
Before continuing, consider a fascinating verse about another related aspect of salvation few understand. We have seen that Christian Israelites await a truly incredible salvation. But, the whole creation is also intensely awaiting the appearing of all those new sons of Israel to be added to YEHOVAH’s Family.
Carefully read the following, previously referenced but now with different emphasis:
“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; for the creation [all things in the known universe] was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God. We know that the whole creation [everything] has been groaning in travail together until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves [Christian Israelites], who have the firstfruits of the Spirit [the few now called], groan inwardly as we wait for [birth] as sons” (Romans 8:19-23, RSV).
All future “children of God” -- sons -- will be LIBERATORS of a creation now in bondage. All humanly-devised gods, worshipped today in such ignorance, will be put aside and exposed for what they were -- false!
Now we can continue the all-important account in Hebrews 2: “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every [Israelite] man. For it became Him, for Whom are all things, and by Whom are all things, in bringing many sons [of Israel] unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings” (vs. 9-10).
Did you catch what was said? Do you grasp it? These verses contain the promise of a STAGGERING FUTURE available to YEHOVAH's people Israel. Those called in this age are to inherit “all things” and to be “crowned with glory and honor” through the sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah -- “the Captain of their salvation.”
These verses reveal the marvelous, wonderful potential planned for all true Christian Israelites. Paul reveals that, when YEHOVAH God and the Messiah return, “many sons” will be brought “unto glory,” through the work of the “Captain of our salvation” (Hebrews 2:10).
The Bible shows a connection between sons and heirs. An heir has not yet inherited what is to come to him. We read, in I Corinthians 15:50, that we of Israel will “inherit the kingdom of God.” But those called now, in this lifetime, are heirs -- begotten (not yet born) sons. Paul further explains, “And if you be Christ’s, then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise…Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 3:29; 4:7).
YEHOVAH God will SHARE rulership over His entire creation with all of His Israelite Sons. The Messiah is merely the first of many. Notice: “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” of Israel (Romans 8:29).
The birth of a “firstborn” son logically implies the future birth of additional sons (and daughters) to the SAME family!
Of course, one of YEHOVAH’s biblical names is “Father” (Greek: Pater: see Matthew 5:48, 6:9; Mark 14:36; Galatians 4:6). This word refers to the head of a family -- it is, like the word “son”, a family name! A human father and son are members of the same family. This is also true of spirit-begotten children of YEHOVAH God!
Continuing in Hebrews 2, notice that the Messiah “…is not ashamed to call them brethren [the other many sons -- US OF ISRAEL!]” (vs. 11). Truly, the begotten Christian Israelite has been called to “glory” and to be one of “many sons.” The Messiah’s suffering and sacrifice allow him to be the “Captain of their salvation” -- and potentially yours if of Israel.
What an incredible future for those whom Yeshua the Messiah “calls…brethren.” Notice again: “For both He that sanctifies [the Messiah] and they who are sanctified [begotten Christian Israelites] are all of ONE: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren” (vs. 11). There will be no difference between the Messiah and his younger brothers and sisters, except that he will have greater overall authority within YEHOVAH’s Kingdom. All will be of the God kind -- God Beings!
If the Messiah is “not ashamed to call them [us of Israel] brethren,” then we, YEHOVAH’s begotten sons, must not be ashamed to defend the very truth that sanctifies us (John 17:17) -- and the truth of the gospel (Philippians 1:17). We must “grow up” unto the Messiah (Ephesians 4:13) and hold to the true doctrines of YEHOVAH God. We must qualify to stand beside the Messiah over “all things.”
Do you see what has been described here? The Christian Israelite goal is to be born into the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God -- to become an immortal spirit being who will rule under YEHOVAH God and the Messiah. What could be more wonderful -- more glorious -- to look forward to?
While the Trinity is a mystery that cannot be understood, YEHOVAH’s Plan for His people Israel, while a mystery to the world, CAN be understood. And His purpose has not changed from the beginning.
The Trinity doctrine portrays YEHOVAH God as a closed, indefinable, three-in-one being, rather than a divine Family, currently consisting of the Father and His Son, the Messiah. Unlike a family, the CLOSED TRINITY pictures a “static” god, which cannot expand.
Professing Christianity -- through its convoluted teachings on the nature of YEHOVAH God -- denies that the Israelite man can become God! It declares that any who believe this is possible are guilty of blasphemy. Tragically, those of Israel who accept the Trinity are kept from understanding that they were created to become literal members of the God Family, and to share in ruling the entire universe!
The Trinity is just one of many clever counterfeits devised by Satan the devil to deceive YEHOVAH's people Israel. This world’s god does not want YEHOVAH's people Israel to know that they are offered what he can never have. Satan does not want the Israelite man to know that YEHOVAH God is reproducing Himself, expanding His Family in a way that can include them -- you! Your destiny is membership in this Family, as a born-again Son of YEHOVAH God, ruling with YEHOVAH God and the Messiah at their now imminent return.
Do not misunderstand, underestimate or miscalculate the importance of which God you serve. NOTHING COULD BE MORE IMPORTANT!
