We have heard that when Christ was the god of the old testament he did this and that. We have heard that the Father had an eternal partner, and they got to talking, and one of the two gods gave up his eternal life to become a baby in the womb of some woman, while all along he was somehow god. How patient must Mary have been while baby god Jesus was crapping his diapers and screaming in a fit because he couldn’t have his way? She must have felt really weird with a god fetus camping out in her for 9 months. Then we’ve heard that Jesus created all things including Lucifer and that he had to fast for 40 days to be able to face the archangel he created, just to tell him that he should only worship the one God left in heaven and him only should one serve! Luke 4:7 We have heard that Jesus will come back to this earth to be worshiped as God but we have also heard that Jesus will be our High priest conducting a service of worship to himself and that every knee will bow. But then we have read that this second hidden God in heaven will rejoin man after the Great White Throne Judgement and the first god Jesus will turn all his power and authority back to the one and Only true God even though we were all lead to believe that Jesus was the God of Israel. When you have sand for your foundation, it is going to crumble. Christianity has been hijacked of its very foundation when the Son of the Most High God became the second god in a family of gods. And the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob was not the father. Acts 3: 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.
So then Jesus was the unknown God of the old testament ! SO Jesus came in the flesh to reveal himself as the creator! James Malm Author of The Shining Light blog helps perpetuate this teaching daily as he supports the Jehovah Witness 2 God instead of 3 god trinitarian view by most prophesying Christians.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God [the Father], and one mediator between God [the Father] and men, the Man Christ Jesus [The one who became Jesus Christ gave up his Godhead and as a physical man came and gave his life for us, after which he was resurrected to spirit and returned to God-hood as the ONLY Intercessor between God the Father and humanity.]; James Malm professing teacher of COG and Chief critic of all COGs and how they put church tradition (HWA teachings) above sound biblical Exegesis
See how one can change a perfectly clear scripture by adding to it to change its clear and undisputable teaching that there is only One God and One perfect man, the man Jesus between God alone and man! This is the very foundation of pure religion as Jesus confirms that flesh and blood did not reveal this but God himself.
33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’[d]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?
Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ
Luke 9:18 And it happened, as He was alone praying, that His disciples joined Him, and He asked them, saying, “Who do the crowds say that I am?”
19 So they answered and said, “John the Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that one of the old prophets has risen again.”
20 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter answered and said, “The Christ of God.”
Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ
Matt, 16:13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. This Knowledge of knowing that Jesus is the promised messiah, the seed of David, the son of Mary (not the second God of the trinity) is the foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Very few Christians have this foundation.
Mark 8:28-33 New King James Version (NKJV)
28 So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” (Certainly Not God himself or a second God in the God head)
29 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”
30 Then He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him. Why? So they wouldn’t stone him before his time read John 8;58 They were about to stone him when he claimed to be greater and before if stature that Abraham.
I say onward Christian Soldiers marching as to war. Brethren, Satan is out to deceive you about who God is. He knows as James 1:18 points out – all you have to do is look up into heaven and you see there is only One God on the throne – the God of both the old and the new testaments, the God who awaits his plan before returning to dwell with his creation. That’s why even the creation moans and the angels because of this separation between God and men.
Hebrews 1New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Supreme Revelation
1 God, (Not Jesus) who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, (Abraham, Moses, Elijah, etc. Not Jesus as He wasn’t alive yet) 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself[a] purged our[b] sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. (So he was by his birth and trials and obedience)
The Son Exalted Above Angels
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”?[c] Created human being like us only his father was God HIMSELF
“I will be to Him a Father,
And He shall be to Me a Son”?[d]
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:
“Let all the angels of “WHO” God worship Him.Singular”[e]
7 And of the angels He says:
“Who makes His angels spirits
And His ministers a flame of fire.”[f]
8 But to the Son He says:
“Your throne, O god, is forever and ever; “Theos”
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You (Brethren Jesus has a God therefore he is not God)
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”[g]
“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, The Father is the creator
And the heavens are the work of Your hands. The Fathers Hands not someone elses
They will perish, but You remain;
And they will all grow old like a garment;
Like a cloak You will fold them up,
And they will be changed.
But You are the same, (You didn’t become a man, you didn’t die)
And Your years will not fail.”[h]
13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?[i]
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? All Singular pronouns in this passage referring to the Father only.
