Matthew 3:16,17 KJV proves the Godhead and not the pagan concept of Trinity
Matthew 3:16,17 KJV proves the Godhead and not the pagan concept of Trinity and Modalism
Yesterday I found the video above in my play list from a YouTube Bible Teacher
It was an outstanding exposure of this new and upcoming Michael Todd who is working hard to become the next Joel Osteen. I thank God for Bezelt3 and his continual work to expose false teachers and Charlatans like Michael Todd.
There is - however - one major issue I have with Bezelt3 and it has to do with him promoting the pagan concept of Trinity and not the biblical Godhead.
First, Trinity is nowhere found in the Bible but as you'll find in notes below was introduced by the apostate heretical Gnostics from the 3rd century followers of Philo - the Jew who loved the philosophy of the Greeks - wanted nothing to do with Jesus Christ - and decided to invent his own new religion of combining the Torah and Greek Philosophy. A later student would be Tertullian from the unholy procession of of Egyptian heretics - the Nicolaitans - Alexandrian heretics from Clement to Origen.
For a very sobering study see the connection of The Synagogue of Satan Revelation 2:9 KJV and The Alexandrian Jews who thought they were Jews.
Before the third century the word and concept of 3 distinct and separate persons co-existing as 1 God was not used. Please see notes. However whenever you read any supporter of the Trinity they try to turn tables and say all heresey against the Trinity began in the 3rd Century. The truth is the heretical teaching of Trinity which is a pagan belief in 3 separate gods being one began in the 3rd century.
Bezelt3 used Matthew 3;16,17 to bolster his belief that God is actually 3 persons. What is amazing here is Matthew 3:16,17 KJV is the proof of exactly the opposite. What Matthew 3:16,17 KJV shows us perfectly is the GODHEAD = Jesus Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God - who is spirit - and of Jesus Christ existing as God in person.
God has an amazing sense of humor. When Trinitarians try to use Matthew 3:16,17 they end up the same way those trying to prove 1 John 5:7 KJV end up and that is proving Godhead and the opposite of Trinity. See 1 John 5:7 KJV notes below.
As you can read in notes I've been called a modalist. Even Bezelt3 calls people who do not believe in the pagan - foreign concept of Trinity MODALISTS. What is hilarious is the word Modalism comes from the reprobate philosopher John Locke - the father of liberalism - and it literally comes from the word mode and is used to mean someone who believes that parts of the whole do not constitute the essence of their whole.
This would be like me saying I'm a modalist because I believe an Egg is made up of 3 parts = shell, white, and the yolk - the shell is really not an egg shell but it is actually a dandelion, not part of the egg. The Egg white has nothing to do with an egg but rather a diesel engine. The egg yolk isn't really an egg yolk but rather a humming bird.
Trinitarians are trained to use the word Modalist if anyone disputes the concept of Trinity and 100 % of them do not even know they're using a failed flawed philosophical concept. Modalism is also related to another term called Sabellianism which is also an extremely flawed philosophical term coined by the Vatican to dispel Sabellius who had flawed beliefs of the Godhead but was rightfully - adamantly opposed to 3 separate gods being 1. Patripassionism is another flawed concept of the Godhead that opposed the concept of 3 in 1. But today we have Trinitarians like Dr. Kim who actually believe the Godhead is precisely the pagan doctrine of Trinity.
Back to Matthew 3:16 and 17 proving Godhead. Let's begin:
Let's begin with the grammar of verse 16: ... and he (Jesus) saw the Spirit of God (this does not say The Holy Spirit, this says the Spirit of God. John didn't see this Spirit - Jesus saw it.
Here the word "Spirit" is a noun in the neuter form. This simply means it is not a distinct "person"... NOT distinct - but rather - following the preposition OF =
And speaking of the Preposition OF - Let's look at Colossians 1:15 KJV...
Jesus Christ IS (verb to be = exists) The Image (that is LITERALLY) OF (Of expresses the relationship of a part of something to its whole.) the invisible God.....
Trinitarians have a major problem here. They must concede that the King James Bible is using Modalist language here by calling the Spirit of God - God's spirit is NOT separate person but rather a part of the Godhead. Read it again please.
In John 16:13 KJV we read:
..when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."
Again we see this is NOT a separate Person of the Trinity but rather Jesus Christ in Spirit or the Spirit of Jesus Christ. This harmonized with Romans 8:9 KJV
Trinitarians like BELTZ3 smugly say this is a separate completely autonomous person. To call the Spirit of God which is PART of the GODHEAD is "blasphemous" To Trinitarians. Believers in the Godhead and not the Pagan Trinity would have been burned at the stake by the Vatican five hundred years ago. Now, sadly protestants have adapated this false teaching.
Yes,... Trinitarians want to call Matthew 3 experience as the separate PERSON named: The Holy Spirit who - as the Catholics and Many Protestants claim in pictures as a WHITE DOVE. Look at my study in links below at the Pagan art depicting the Trinity. Read where God forbids this pagan practice in Acts 17:29 KJV. Read where Paul warns of being spoiled by VAIN IMAGINATIONS and PHILOSOPHY MAN MAN in Colossians 2:8KJV.
In Godhead we know that God is Spirit and is invisible. But here we see Jesus saw - notice nobody else saw the Spirit of God - which proves the divine nature of Jesus Christ existing as the VISIBLE IMAGE OF GOD.
Let's continue: ... descending like a dove. Like = Adverb meaning "in the manner of" or in a "form" of the article (The) - meaning The Spirit of God. This does NOT SAY a literal dove landed on Jesus' head, but rather God's spirit became a visible form and rested on Jesus' head.
We don't know if this was a very white bright light shaped like a winged image, but it wrong to "assume" what this image was the visible image of The Holy Spirit as a separate Person who is the image of a Dove resting on Jesus.
Verse 17. And lo a voice from heaven saying...This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Here again is perfect proof of NOT the Trinity but the Godhead. Verse 17 harmonizes with Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:7 KJV and Colossians 1:11-15 KJV and 1 John 5:7 . Our Heavenly Father by His Spirit is WITNESS to His only begotten Son who is standing before Him and mankind as His visible image. The Godhead speaking in Genesis 1:26 is not God speaking to the heavenly host of angels because angels were not involved in creation. Amen!
As I have written in studies in links below, we are created in the image of God, and exist as 3 parts: SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY.
To God be the Glory Forever! Amen! Maranatha!
The Trinity is the Pagan Practice of Polytheism; Modalism is a philosophical term coined by Gnostics to dispel the concept of the biblical Godhead
