Shining light Author James Malm, hammers away at UCG and COGWA for water down doctrine and being liberal, as he has rejected correction himself, on his two god Nicean Apostasy… Author Malm follows HWA in his two god theory, in light of a one God bible. The burden of proof is on those changing Gods’ word from one to two breaking the first commandment of having other(more than one) God before ME. Not Us. Brethren the two god scenario was 1/3 step back from where we came from the Trinity. Brethren we have to grow in grace and knowledge, we still are 1/3 away from knowing our father and our and Jesus God. 3/3 Trinity, 2/3 Binatarianism 1/1 Monotheism. Just because a man a preacher a pope says something is true and they repeat it often doesn’t make it so. We must search the bibles of different translations and find the truth. Nothing is more evident than this core doctrine of the bible. Day after day post after post Shining light blog blurs the reality of scripture with the doctrine of men… Would a true seeker of truth a Christian in the truest sense of the word think that they know it all? I certainly don’t think I do, we all have blind spots and need to sharpen iron with iron. If I’m wrong then I would expect you or Mr Malm to shine some light on my error! Wouldn’t you want someone to point out your error to you. Like I’ve said before, this is not personal with Shining light author, it is in the spirit of seeking the truth, as the pearl of great price. Now below I point out Mr Malms assumption that Jesus was inter acting with Joshua is in complete denial with scripture. There has to be rules of language, especially in the bible, a Hebrew book with a Greek new testament, with Trinitarian translators, into English. Folks this in itself is a mountain to conquer. The Daniel 12:4 Knowledge shall be much increased which happened around 1995. HWA didn’t have a tenth of the knowledge that is available to us today. As Peter says in Acts 3:17 there was a time of overlooking the truth but now we are called to go forward and continue learning, not reading a NIcean creed back into our bibles as though it was true.
Then were all the people gathered [not just the leaders as in Joshua 23] so that Joshua could address the whole nation.
24:1 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
Joshua then reports the word of YHVH [Jesus Christ] to all the people, rehearsing the history of the nation and its relationship with God.
In the beginning of Israel, Jesus Christ first revealed himself to Abraham and called him out of his city and then revealed himself to Isaac, Jacob and Joseph; and then they went down into Egypt to become an allegory of the spiritual called out.
24:2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods. 24:3 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac. 24:4 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
Physical Egypt a type of bondage was destroyed by Christ, picturing Christ destroying spiritual bondage by his atoning sacrifice as the ultimate Lamb of God. Then Israel was called out of physical Egypt and crossed the Red Sea by the power of Christ; to celebrate a total victory over bondage to the spiritual pharaoh Satan, at the resurrection at the end of the sixth day of Unleavened Bread, after which the High Day representing the millennial Sabbath of rest was celebrated.
Jesus Christ is not YHVH, he is the son of YHVH, this is the story of the bible, a promise to Israel that the father would raise up a prophet like Moses Deut.18:18 one of the most important scriptures in the bible, quoted more times by me than any other. Read it, I report, you decide.
