Part 2. Using Preposition and OF to prove Godhead and Dispel Trinity
Part 1 of the Preposition of OF to prove Godhead and Dispel Trinity in Video link above Blog in notes below.
Part 2 of Preposition and the Preposition OF to prove Godhead and Dispel Trinity: Going DEEPER into the Grammar and Context of Scripture.
As we saw using sound biblical hermeneutics (Context-Grammar-Scripture with Scripture) to include bible history we know that Satan's system going back to the 2nd Century how the early so called church fathers like Tertullian who was of the students of PHILO the reprobate Jew seeking to be a Greek Philosopher who taught the philosophy and corrupt teachings of the Trinity.
Today I want to take a deeper look at the Grammar:
Let's define a PREPOSITION: Taken from page 2283 Oxford Compact Dictionary
Definition: To Put Before - (specifically in context) used in context as a Part of Speech as an indeclinable (The definition of indeclinable is a grammar term that is a word that must be determined from its context because it does not have anything added to show a grammatical category such as tense, gender, mood or number.)
Continuing with the meaning of PREPOSITION: A word serving to mark relation between 2 notional (how a particular person is to be comprehended or classified) words the latter of which is usually a substantive (a noun expressing the existence, the essential value of a thing. Its essence.
It is precisely here we see The Godhead in Colossians 1:15 KJV. The unseen God is to be comprehended by seeing his appearance as Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the very essence and existence of GOD MADE FLESH. Or in other words: God is visible when you see Jesus Christ.
A Trinitarian would be jumping up and down here with great excitement upon seeing the word: "person". Only preaching the Godhead and not Trinity I agree here that we are talking about the Person of Jesus Christ who is a PERSON, A HUMAN BEING standing there. And this is precisely where the Trinitarian falls of the proverbial cliff of Philosophy and Vain Imagination. They go on to classify God as the "other person" being discussed here. But they fail to understand which preposition we're using and this the Preposition OF....
A more precise definition 'precise'... of the word OF when used as a preposition: Specifically, "OF" used in the context of 1 Colossians 1:15 KJV
Page 1977 Oxford Compact Dictionary
XIII 44: OF = Partitive expression by Possessive Case. (partitive = of a grammatical construction or case referring to only a part of a whole, for example a slice of cake...) (possessive = something belonging to something).
OF = whence (from which) - the origin of being. A part is expressed by the preceding word... (ex: slice of cake).
Expressing origin decent of the source. Classification of the particular. Connotative - Denotative. In the form of; PART OF BELONGING TO ; INCLUDED IN - PART IN..
I could tell a person who has never seen a cake all day about the concept of cake; i.e., how it smells, how it tastes, what it looks like etc. But it is not until they actually have in their possession the visible appearance of a slice of cake. Seeing the actual cake, the denotation of the cake - they understand what cake is in its unseen connotation. The visual representation - appearance is the actual "Denotation" of the cake.
THIS IS EXACTLY AS WAS WITNESSED BY John and the other disciples.
Read 1 John 1:1 KJV
Verses 2 and 3 are NOT describing Persons, the MANIFESTATION to mankind was JESUS AS THE IMAGE OF GOD in Verse 2.
Translation: We use a preposition to mark the relationship of Jesus Christ to the invisible God. The only "person" here is the Person of Jesus Christ as witnessed as the Visual proof displayed by scripture as follows:
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:9 KJV. A child understands that a Person is a body. BODILY... BODILY... Please read.
God The Father is NOT an old man sitting on a throne. God the father is not a separate person represented bodily. Again, a person is a body. This is not an issue of sematology - semantics here people. In both scripture and in science a body is either a 3-dimensional neuter nominal object OR a living person attributed to humans. The Holy Spirit is not a person. As I explained in part 1, when the Spirit is referenced to "he" as in the Spirit of Truth, we are speaking of Jesus Christ and His Spirit operating.
For a better understanding of the relationship with Jesus sitting at the right hand of the God and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father - ACTS 2:33 KJV please read:
Jesus Christ is the ONLY person who we see and understand as BODY. Read Colossians 2:9 KJV. The same goes with the Holy Spirit. Whenever "he" is used with the Holy Spirit in scripture it is referring directly to Jesus Christ or God who is represented in bodily form as Jesus Christ. Whenever Spirit is used with the preposition OF it means what we've discussed above.
Understanding the discipline required by the use of the Preposition "OF "in a Partitive Possessive relationship; i.e., meaning the part expressed to whole we must now look at context and use of the Greek word εἰκὼν (eikōn = IMAGE)
Eikon is used 6 times whereby 2 scriptures in particular fit exactly to Godhead: 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV and Colossians 1:15 KJV.
Note: - although it is most astounding that man is the image of God in the context of Genesis Chapter 1 verses 26 and 27 note: in our image after our likeness then in verse 27 it is clear CREATED man in his own image which is more profound proof of the Godhead in that we humans do not walk around as 3 separate persons existing in one. See my studies on this in note links below:
Also, Matthew 22:20 does not fit in context of 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV and Colossians 1:15 KJV because this is literally meaning the visual likeness of a figure as "Caesar is represented on a coin." Interesting that the KJV always stays true to the precise interpretation of the word IMAGE from the Greek and relies on the work of examining the context and grammar to understand God's word. However, if you look at the perverted bible translations like the NASB or NIV they change the word IMAGE to LIKENESS in Matthew 24:24 BUT leave you to think image without knowing that in context we need to understand the word APPEARANCE. when comparing the 6 uses of the Greek eikon. And as far as Revelation 13:5 KJV is concerned, this is strictly related to a visual representation in the form of a statue of hologram.
In conclusion: Here is our example proving Godhead NOT Trinity:
Jesus is the image OF the invisible God.... = Jesus appears to us as the very existence of God.
The word image is in relation to invisible God as follows: The invisible God is the very essence and existence of what you see when you visibly view JESUS Christ.
God does not exist as a separate person but as JESUS CHRIST in the flesh.
IN PHILIOSOPHY THIS CONCEPT IS USING THE MIND AND INTELLECT TO form a character -relationship outside of Scripture is exactly what Trinitarians practice. Here is another danger signal for Trinitarians found in 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV that is dealing again with Godhead...
Trinitarians fail to heed this strict warning:
TAKE HEED Trinitarians in accordance with 2 Corinthians 4... KJV
In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, should shine unto them..
QUESTION TRINITARIAN? How can you proclaim the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV IF you teach that the glorious gospel of Christ is 1 of 3 separate gods who are really 1 god? Read Chapter 4 of 2 Corinthians all verses carefully and examine yourself.
Godhead proven by Scripture A heed to Trinitarians who try to prove Trinity by scripture
The Preposition and the Use of Preposition OF Proves Godhead - Dispels Trinity
Trinity is Pagan Practice of Polytheism - Godhead is Biblical
