Note: After you have finished watching and listening attentively to the debate: I invite you to read the Inward Jew Nation in Christ,(Guyana,) beliefs on the Nature of God. Your comments are welcome. I thank you, and God richly bless you. Amen.
The Nature of God
We believe that since in the beginning Yahweh the Most High (the Highest of all,) has been sharing His Divinity (sole Godhead Status) in His dual relationship with His Son (the Word), who is distinct from Him.[Colossians 1:16-17 & 19, 2:9, 1 John 1:1-4]
Also, we believe according to the scripture that, both the Word, and the Holy Spirit, originated in God the Father of all; and came forth from Him. Further, that these two distinct beings are within His nature. Finally, that the Holy Spirit and Comforter is the continuation, or extension of God the Father of all, who is a divine Spirit.
Jesus said to His Disciples, “I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.” [John 1:18, 14:28] Jesus also said to His disciples, “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of me. 15:26-27]
Yahweh, our God is a single God
Yahweh the Highest declares to us through the scriptures that, He is a single God and there is none other beside Him. [Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Isaiah 44:6, 45:5, 1 Cor. 8:4 & 6] Jesus the Christ, the Son of God pointed His disciples and others to a single God and Father, for example, (1) He taught his Disciples to pray in this manner, “Our Father, which art in heaven…. [Matthew 6:9], and (2) He pointed the woman of Samaria to a single Father and God. In the lines of John 4:23 & 24 Jesus said to her, “… The true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.“
Jesus the Christ never said that His God and Father is a triune God, or a trinity period. As a matter of fact, God spoke for Himself through Moses His servant, and commanded him to teach Israel that, He is a single God, and he (Moses) said to them, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one God… And thou shall teach them unto thy children….” [Deuteronomy 6: 4-5 &7]
I pray that we Believers say simply what the pure Word says for God’s sake, in Jesus’ name. Amen? Amen.
About a dual relationship sharing … between Father and Son
The Scriptures do support, however, that Yahweh the Most High (the Highest of all,) has been sharing His Divinity (sole Godhead Status) in His dual relationship with His Son, since in the beginning. It is written:
“For it pleased the Father that in Him (the Son) should all fullness dwell.” [Colossians 1:19] And the Son to which the Scriptures refer is the One, who was in the beginning with God, in the celestial World, the very Son, “… who is the image of the invisible God, the first born of every creature…. For by Him were all things created, that are in the heavens, that are in earth, visible and invisible , whether they be thrones, or dominion, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things and by Him all things consists.” [Colossians 1:16-17 & 19, 2:9] And by –the – way, all these events took place prior to the Son’s incarnation.
Concerning His Son, when He *bringeth in the first begotten into the world, He saith, “And let all the angels of God worship Him.” Note: the verb *“bringeth” is in the past tense, and may be rendered “was to bring” (Gk,eisago; ice-ag’-o). Therefore it was in the celestial world where God commanded the angels to worship the His Son, before He brought Him into the terrestrial world. Let’s give God the highest praise. Hallelujah!
Thus while still in the celestial world, and before bringing Him into the terrestrial world God said to Him, “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom. Thou shalt loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”And thou Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands ….” [Hebrews 1:8-9]
From the above, [Hebrews 1:8-9] by His use of the possessive pronoun ‘thy,” God confirmed that He was the God of the divine person (His Son) whom He addressed as “O God.” It is noteworthy that, the two entities involved within the context of this scripture are God and His Son, and that God in a sense established His status as Head over His Son when He said to Him in the celestial World, that is, prior to His incarnation, “God, even thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” [1 Corinthians 11:3] So, according to the scripture’s text, there are mainly two divine Persons mentioned in the Godhead, namely, God and God alone, who is the Highest; and His Son with whom He shares a dual relationship of His divinity (Godhead).
Again, the Father and Son relationship would have existed in the celestial world long before the incarnation. Consider, for example, to whom God said, “Let us make man in our own image after our own likeness….” [Genesis 1:26] The word “us” also a pronoun, is the objective plural of the pronoun “we,” and it is the object of the verb “let.” So the pronoun “us” included God Himself, and the divine Word, existing as His Son, in the beginning, and “by whom also He made the World.” [Hebrews 1:2; Colossians 1:16] A noteworthy observation is that, even though the Holy Spirit was/is involved in all the various acts of Elohim, that is, God,and His Son, yet He (Holy Spirit) is not mentioned. Why ? Please see below:-
A few lines in this paragraph are not always according to scripture, it is just my ‘speculateology’ thing. Ok?
The Holy Spirit is not mentioned with the Father and the Son, perhaps because the Holy Spirit of God, (used synonymously with the Spirit of God and Comforter) is the extension of God, who is a Spirit. And where God is, the extension of His Spirit is, for there is only One Spirit. God sent the extension of His spirit everywhere to: reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness and of judgment to come, comfort, empower, enlighten, guide, convict and woe men to Christ. [John 16:8, 16:16-17, & 26]
As Executive Officials engaged in field work, the Holy Spirit is Yahweh’s Kingdom Executive Representative in the world, including giving feedback to Him through intercession etc. on behalf of God’s people, for example, when we don’t know how to pray as we should…. [Romans 8:26-27] In addition to what I have already mentioned, the Father by His Spirit in His Son oversees the entire world, so the Holy Spirit works behind the scene and His name is unmentioned.
Below are scriptures which points to the Elohim, ― the single God; and His Son, with whom He shares a relationship of His Divinity/Godhead: but as the readers will see that the Holy Spirit is not mentioned.
- “In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heavens and the earth,” [Genesis 1:1] that is, God and God alone, and the Word. [John 1:3; Colossians 1:16]
- “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, or Deity, the same was in the beginning with God.” [John 1:1-2] “God” and “Word” are two separate entities since the preposition “with” connects its object “God” with the verb “was.”
- John being an eye witness among the other Disciples, who saw the glory of the “first begotten” wrote, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the Glory of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” [John 1:14]
- That which was from the beginning of the Word of life was eventually manifested in the flesh, and the early Disciples literally heard, saw and, even” handled of the Word of life… that which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ” [1 John 1:1-3],and
- “If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love Him, and we will come unto Him, and make our abode in Him.” [John 14:23] Just to mention a few.
Yahweh our heavenly Father, that we “might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God…” is my sincere prayer on behalf of all Believers in Christ in every nation, worldwide, in Jesus’ name. Amen. [Colossians 1:10]
May Yahweh richly bless you and your household, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
