The Preposition "Of" proves Godhead and dispels Trinity
And speaking of the Preposition OF
- Let's look at Colossians 1:15 KJV...
Jesus Christ IS (to be 3rd person (a verb) = to exists as) The Image (that is LITERALLY )
OF (Of expresses the relationship of a part of something to its whole.) the
Trinitarians have a major problem here. They must concede that the King James Bible is using what they improperly coin "Modalist" * language here. Calling the Spirit of God - God's spirit - is NOT a 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 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 adapted this false teaching.
Yes,... Trinitarians want to call the Matthew 3:16 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.
Let's begin with the grammar of verse 16 of Matthew Chapter 3: ... 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 =
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.
Note on Modalism:
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.
