BIBLE BELIEVERS FELLOWSHIP
"THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD"
The question of whether God exists as a triune being has been with us for some time, even though the Bible itself does not actually teach this. As Bible Believers we say that there is only one God and that Jesus is the image of the invisible God who is the author of all creation. (Col 1:15)
The Apostle Paul said…“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Tim 3:16, yet this seems to be the most controversial statement found in the Word of God.
Jesus said of the commandments that “the first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord,” and that we should, “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” Mark 12:30. Closely linked to this subject is the issue of correct baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Those who read the scriptures will realise that throughout the Book of Acts of the Apostles no one was actually ever baptised into the titles, even though Jesus said, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Matt 28:19, for the NAME of the ‘Father’ the ‘Son and the ‘Holy Ghost’ was understood in earliest time to be “The Lord Jesus Christ” and the early church baptised in that name right up until the formation of the Roman Catholic Church who introduced this mode of baptism.
What this reveals is that the titles Jesus was referring to was actually offices that God held rather than three individual entities or personages for the scripture cannot contradict itself.
Since this is historically and scripturally true, people wonder where the three personages came from. The answer is that it became a foundational doctrine at the Nicene Council in 325 AD. In short, the TRINITY (an absolutely unscriptural word) was based on the many gods of ancient Rome to whom they prayed. They also prayed to ancestors as mediators. It was therefore just a small step to give new names to their old gods, replacing them with names of saints to make their new religion sound more Biblical. For example, instead of Jupiter, Venice, Mars, these were replaced by Paul, Peter, Fatima and others. Also, they could not make their new pagan-christian religion work out with just one God, so they split Him into three, and made intercessors of the saints, just as they had made intercessors of their ancestors. All the false gods of the Roman Empire can be traced back to ancient Babylon and the religion of Babylon infiltrated every nation and culture worldwide.
Today we find the Babylon religion even in our main stream churches dressed up with Christian names.
Ever since then, people have failed to realise that there is just one God with three offices or manifestations. They know there is one God according to Scripture, yet they try to make it a fantastic theory that God is like a bunch of grapes; three persons with the same divinity shared equally by all. But the Bible plainly says in the Book of Revelation that Jesus is 'That Which Is‘, 'That Which Was' and 'That Which is to Come.'
He is the Alpha and Omega, which means that He is the 'A to Z' or THE ALL OF IT. He is everything - the Almighty. He is the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, the Righteous Branch, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, He is God, Almighty God. ONE God.
