To Love is to Know and to Understand I AM

 All scripture in the King James Bible. 


Why the King James Bible Only?

This work is a labor of love for our Lord Jesus Christ submitted for His glory that others may share in this work being fruitful as we increase in the knowledge of God by His Grace being filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Amen! I must thank my dear Brothers in Christ Daryl Gass, Rick Whittaker and Rick’s wife Lena Whittaker for their steadfast support and assistance in putting this study together.  To all Glory be given to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!


 Each and every human being was created in the image of God as a person with a Body and after His likeness Genesis 1:26  - possessing a body, soul, and spirit. Even the most ardent atheist knows by their conscience - the faculty of their God given spirit - that there is right and wrong and that there is a "supreme being" that puts the entire world together. Romans 1:18-20. 


Every human possesses a different, unique relationship and understanding of God. Our hope is that all those whom God has appointed to read this Blog may seriously study and I pray each person approaches this study with the heart of 1 Corinthians 11:31-32 and Philippians 2:12-13


If you're not saved by knowing Jesus Christ as your savior, Redeemed by the Savior Jesus Christ,  we pray you come to Jesus Christ now and believe that Christ came and died on the cross for your sins according to the scriptures and that he was buried, and that He rose again on the 3rd day according to the scriptures. Amen! 


If your understanding of God is based on the Trinity or a perverted perception as many today profess that the Godhead is the Trinity concept of 3 separate persons, The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit existing as 1 One God, know this... You are worshiping another Jesus. 



Commentary by Lena Whittaker:  By The Way


“The Words “By the Way” KJV and “on the road” NKJV are three little words that we are told mean the same thing in the scripture below:


King James Version  Luke 24:32   And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?


New King James Version - Luke 24:32  And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”


When we read in the New King James version we see: on the road, as traveling to a destination. In the King James version we read: while He talked with us by the way.

In the King James version we read where Jesus said  “I AM the Way”  

John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

My question remains, WHY change 3 tiny little words?  If not to keep you looking down at the road.  This traveling just on the road takes our eyes off of Jesus who is The Way.  

Colossians 3:2  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

I am now 61 years old and I have believed in Jesus for 29 years.  I knew Jesus LOVED me, He died for me, He rose again the third day and Jesus is ALIVE, He is the Living Word of God.  I knew the Bible said so and my Mum told me too. 


I knew I loved Jesus for what He had done, but my mind could not comprehend the Trinity doctrine. How could God be both 3 persons and One God, and why did it not make sense. It seemed to me God’s Word would make sense, not leave us confused. But the TEACHERS and PREACHERS stood up and said, you must believe blindly by faith or you are not saved, and so I followed. The blind following the blind.

 

But, I hung unto the fact that Jesus Loved me, and a scripture from Philippians 1:6 that became the foundation which remained with me. Jesus said He would finish that work He started in me. I clung to this promise, more than you could ever know.  I read various versions of the Bible, in layman's terms, to try and better understand.  I did not go back to the old fashioned english version of  The King James Bible, who wants all the Thee’s and Thou’s.  I had made A Wrong Choice!  For far too long (29yrs) I cherished my New King James Bible, I now use it only to see how WRONG IT WAS and IS!


I am so glad Jesus did not let go of my hand.


Jesus Loves me, The Bible told me so.”



As a Child by LENA WHITTAKER




We are warned that if we love not the Lord Jesus Christ, we are accursed. 1 Corinthians 16:22. For if we truly love our Lord Jesus Christ, we desire to know him and understand him more. Proverbs teaches that the beginning of Wisdom is FEAR of the Lord.


Rick Whittaker comment:  “Each of us must ask ourselves: Do we FEAR God and actually want to take Him at His word or proceed in our own vain imagination?”


 It is through fear and trembling we work out our salvation (not works unto salvation but striving for crowns and our relationship with Christ. We do not strive unlawfully, but by God's word in the King James Bible as our absolute authority and rightly divided can we have our clear guide. Amen! 

* Note 1


 It is through the faculty of our SPIRIT that we KNOW what the Holy Spirit has shown us through our spirit's faculty of Communion (communication and fellowship), Intuition (spiritual sense of our environment), and Conscience (knowledge of right and wrong).  His word, our King James Bible is our sole guide that must work precisely with the Holy Spirit in our Spiritual lives. Nothing whatsoever, regardless of how logical or sincere that is NOT written in God's word as the King James Bible as final authority is not of the Spirit of God and of Christ which is the Holy Spirit. 


Clearly this is why we are commanded to test all spirits. 1 John 4:1.   


 It is through the mental exercise of our mind (the faculty of our SOUL in addition to our will, desire, emotion, and personality) that we understand what our spirit is confirming from the Holy Spirit. This is the work of study. This is the sweat equity we must put in dear Saint. 


We must ask ourselves honestly this question, who is I AM spoken of in the scriptures? I pray the reader is adamant in their response: Jesus Christ. Next question. Who is Jesus Christ? Response:  My Savior. The Messiah. My Redeemer. Amen! If your response is, “God”, you’re also correct. A Trinitarian would say, “yes, proof that there are 2 persons, thinking in the back of their minds that the 3rd person being the Holy Spirit just isn’t mentioned at the moment. A person who believes in the biblical “GODHEAD” knows I AM is God the Father (INVISIBLE SPIRIT), IN Jesus Christ who is the VISIBLE IMAGE - PERSON - BODY of the invisible God.  


 Understanding that Jesus Christ is our Savior, the promised Messiah, the Christ who died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd day are all the essential key words we must know in the GOSPEL that saves us and brings us into eternal fellowship with him.


In this study I’d like to go deeper in our understanding of Jesus and in doing so it is essential we understand the GODHEAD and make the clear distinction from the perverse pagan BAAL worship of Trinity.  If you believe in the Jesus Christ of the Second Person of the Trinity - the absurd and unbiblical sense of 3 Gods are actually 1 God, that Jesus Christ is God the Son, or the twisted perception that the Godhead in scripture is actually the Trinity of 3 separate persons, but really just 1 God, then you are worshiping another Jesus and you're preaching another Jesus and you truly cannot know who you love if you proclaim to love Jesus. If you’re reading this and are offended, then I invite you to leave now and do as those who were offended in John 6:61-6:66. 



*NOTE:  Commentary by Lena Whittaker: 

“1 John 2:18-23:  Verse 23 has become a minor teaching from the Latin Vulgate (325 AD) on down to the perverted versions of The King James Bible today, if it is included at all. 

The Trinity teachings say it is a minor teaching  :23b (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.  

 BUT this is a MAJOR TEACHING of the Who Jesus is.



Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.  But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. “ 


If you know in your “spirit man” - the depths of your conscience that there is only 1 God and Jesus Christ is the fullness expressed bodily as the one God and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and NOT God the son, please continue:


Let’s look carefully at John 6:62 to see what offended the disciples Jesus is addressing. “What and is ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was BEFORE…   Repeat:  where he was BEFORE.  This is perfectly harmonized by John 3:13, “John 3:13 No man has ascended up to heaven but he that CAME DOWN from heaven, even the son of man which is in heaven. 


Commentary by Rick Whittaker: “Here we see Jesus addressing humans with a carnal mind (which is enmity against God…Romans 8:7)  Jesus was challenging their faith; that if they DID NOT WANT to believe He was God why would they suddenly change their mind to believe Him now?  They seek a sign, the Greek seek after wisdom and you still see it today. In the Evangelical circus Tents you see the hucksters, with their satanic songs, still doing their traveling salesman routine.  Do we NOT FEAR GOD? Do we take what He tells us at HIS WORD?


To those whom God wants to change, He calls them through His Spirit. His true children will hear and follow.


 In John 10:23 - 30: And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never** perish, neither* shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

I and my Father are one.


The fact that God who is JESUS CHRIST  is HOLY as The creator is ultimately Righteous, Holy, Immutable (Jesus is the High Priest by the order of Melchisedec - never changing in that He can not lie or does not need to make an oath to man to prove himself) The Oath is our HOPE, Jesus Christ our High Priest.”


 To fully comprehend this statement we have to come face to face with the following Scripture:




 I AM


Exodus 3:14



And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.




John 8:58



Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am.

There is only 1 GOD. God exists eternally as Jesus Christ as the PERSON - BODY - IMAGE of the invisible God, Colossians 1:15, 2:9, These are not 2 separate beings, persons, or the Trinitarian addition of the 3rd person the Holy Spirit. We are looking at 1 PERSON - BODY - IMAGE and that is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:6 and Ephesians 4:6 tells us clearly there is only 1 God who is the Father and we are IN him. If we harmonize this with Ephesians 2:6 we find that we are IN Christ Jesus. Jesus told Philip that when they see him they see “the Father”John 14:9. And since no man has seen God, John 1:18,  and no man has seen the Father, John 6:46,  and since God is Spirit, John 4:24, we can both logically understand and establish by sound scripture that the concept of 3 distinct persons which literally means PERSONs in the form of a man (see studies of the concrete noun and how the word person was illogically applied to a Spirit by Tertullian in 2 AD.  Tertullian was the perverse reprobate who created the gnostic, philosophical term “trinity”). 

 Refer to Note 2 for extensive background information regarding the Biblical Godhead and why the Trinity is not only NOT Biblical but it is Pagan Polytheism going back to Nimrod and BAAL Worship.  Hinduism and Buddhism among the other ancient religions practiced the three person trinity.  Yesterday in a lengthy conversation with Dr. John Hinton, it was made clear that Catholicism is literally Western Hinduism in all aspects.  Why is this important regarding the Trinity?  Because the Trinity was first established in the Catholic church in 325 AD and is a perfect representation of Hinduism.  Also read in Note 2 the background of the Apostate church (why the Trinity among many other false doctrines are taught in the Laodicean church of today). 

Note: It is not our intention to attack Catholics or Evangelicals but in the spirit of love we are compelled as watchmen TO SPEAK THE TRUTH. As Jesus commanded us.

Rick Whittaker: “The Holy Spirit has compelled me, committed me to one God as One Person only existing as Jesus Christ.  Take a look at the Trinity pictures above and tell me if what you see makes sense.  We believe in only what the scriptures teach as revealed to me by His Spirit. Amen!  

Believing, trusting and understanding Jesus Christ is I AM.”


Lena Whittaker:  THE TRINITY LIE as found in the Codex...

“Even as my soul is one, but a triune soul, reason, and breath; so also God is one, but is also triune, Father, Word, and Holy Ghost….  For as soul, reason and breath are three features, and in substance one soul, and not three souls; so Father, Word and Holy Ghost, [are] three persons, and one God in substance, and not three gods.” (Translation by KJV Today)

NOTE:  In conversation with Dr. John Hinton Master Divinity Harvard, Linguist specializing in ancient languages I learned that we're told the modern bible translations used the Greek manuscripts from Alexandria Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus. But according to Dr. Hinton most of the modern bible translations took their material DIRECTLY FROM THE KING JAMES Bible and did there revising from that. 


Colossians 3:10

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him.  

put on the new man,  This is work (not work unto salvation but for our reward and relationship with God) to consciously by faith walk each day in obedience to God's word, knowing by faith, believing that we are indeed dead to sin and alive unto Righteousness, that by the blood of Jesus Christ shed for us we are redeemed. Romans 3:22-28; 4:2-8, 5:1-2, 9. 6:6. Knowing and believing that we are crucified with Christ, it is no longer we who live but Jesus Christ within us. Galatians 2:22.   

How did this happen? after the image of him that created him. *note 3  When Christ Jesus eternal created - made himself, yes, created himself in the womb of the virgin, he became the son of Man and the only begotten son of God.  This had to happen in order to fulfill the prophecy of God telling the serpent that the seed of a woman would crush his head Genesis 3:15. This would be our redemption, salvation from eternal spiritual death. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. Our belief in Jesus' death on the cross ...This would be our redemption, salvation from eternal spiritual death. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. Leviticus 17:11, Hebrews 9:22.  Hence our Salvation is found on the belief that Christ died on the cross for our sins, he was buried and rose again on the 3rd day. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.  See Note 3

John 1:14


And the Word was made flesh,  and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


Philippians 2:6-7

 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:


But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 

NOTE:  Jesus Christ did NOT EMPTY HIMSELF… 

Essential NOTE:  Perverted Bible translations and their apostate teachers teach that Jesus EMPTIED HIMSELF of His divinity as the Son of Man. This is both unscriptural in accordance with the King James Bible and is heretical and frankly BLASPHEMOUS.

 

Jesus Christ did not “empty himself” as some modern English Bible translations suggest. That would be heresy! Jesus could not stop being who He was - He was and IS God.


Rick Whittaker comment:  “Perfect example was in the Garden of Gethsemane, Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?


 John 18:4-8  And they fell backward to the ground at his words, “I AM He…”. 


What we see here is Christ Jesus is the IMAGE - BODY - PERSON - only 1 PERSON of the invisible God, who created ALL things. Colossians 1:16 was created - made as a human of blood and water 1 John 5:6, within the womb of the Virgin.  Compare with Genesis 1:26 at the creation. 


My Kinsman Redeemer descended from heaven and rolled back the stone from the door of the empty tomb of Jesus which was crucified and sat upon it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.  He commanded both Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to go and tell the others.  … For a complete study on Kinsman Redeemer in knowing Jesus Christ as the PERSON existing for Eternity Past Present and Future, please read link in note 2 below and I have also posted the article following notes below. 


And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

 

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:


And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

 

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

 

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

 

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

The angel of the Lord H4397 Theophany (old testament appearances of God) also in context referred to as Christophany - the appearance of Christ in the Old testament and in the New Testament at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. God appearing in the flesh without blood in a body appearing as a man who is God in the flesh is called theophanies.  We could also look at this as Christ in His Glorified body. The same as we will be when we’re raptured at the end of this age.


The major difference between our human body and our glorified body is our glorified body will still be our face, bodily structure, WITHOUT Blood, along with our personality (SOUL) - perfected in Christ, and living under the authority of Christ Jesus by and in our SPIRIT. We will still be 3 parts. BODY SOUL and SPIRIT as we were created in the beginning Genesis 1:26 In the IMAGE and after the LIKENESS of God (Godhead) made exact copies of Jesus Christ in that he is a body possessing a SOUL and SPIRIT of God the Father within Him. 



The Godhead.  The entire Bible is based upon Jesus Christ. Without Jesus coming to earth as a flesh and blood human being and being sacrificed - "death on the cross " shedding his blood we fallen human beings from the seed of the first Adam were eternally separated from God. God's perfect eternal law requires a payment of death for all sin. Since the sacrifice of animals is only a temporary solution- God - Jesus Christ the Person offered himself and became sin who knew no sin 2 Corinthians 5:21,  Isaiah 53:10.


“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).


 It is only by this perfect sacrifice that we NOW  exist IN  God- Jesus Christ in Spirit. We will soon be in our glorified body and be as he is for eternity at the end of this age. Hallelujah! Maranatha!

Note: In all greetings Paul writes greetings : Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ. Trinitarians love to use this to show 2 persons in reading the King James Bible. Interesting that The perverted bible translations delete words Lord Jesus Christ. However, according to the Oxford English Dictionary page 79,in the Old English use of the conjunction" is used to express RELATIONSHIP - to be EMPHATICALLY CONNECTED, in the two dimensions of space that can also be understood as BY - by the way of, as the result of, by means of. (used in the sense of a preposition). 


Our Kinsman Redeemer was not pre-incarnate before His virgin birth. This language comes from the vain imagination and philosophy of man and after the rudiments of this world. You see, my Kinsman Redeemer has always existed as I AM eternally and will exist eternally in His physical form: As the visible image of God. Amen! 



I was the unprotected widow who needed the protection under law of a kinsman who could legally redeem me from slavery and bondage of a cruel task master.

 

These are the eternal laws of God.

 

I needed a Redeemer and He must be a Kinsman. A kinsman is the same consanguinity - same blood - to be from the same ancestor.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer had to be born of a woman - to be a human being - to be my kinsman. He had to be born of a virgin - the only begotten son of God - to be my redeemer. He had to be born of water and of blood.

 

As Emerson wrote: “Blood is blood which circulates, life is life which generates. ' Every mortal is generated and therefore, that which is not generated is not mortal.”


Ruth 1:22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

2:2 And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.

4:2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. 4 And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.  5 Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance. 6 And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it. 7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this was a testimony in Israel.  8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe. 9 And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand of Naomi. 10 Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.


Matthew 28:2 is a must read to understand why we needed the second Adam to redeem us from spiritual death. 

 

Acts 20:28 tells us that the church of God was purchased with His own blood.  This is clear evidence that God incarnate existing on earth had "human blood" running through his body and while on earth Jesus Christ eventually shed his blood on the cross called the "blood of His cross" Colossians 1:20. After Jesus met Mary Magdalene in the Garden, telling her not to touch him, he ascended to heaven and returned in His glorified body meaning he no longer had blood in his body, otherwise Thomas would have had blood gushing out when he placed his hand inside the pierced side of Jesus. 

Why did Jesus tell Mary Magdalene NOT to touch him?  Perverted bibles take the word touch and twist it to mean grab him, hold onto him. But if we carefully examine the King James word “touch” which means what it says, we see that touch literally means in the Oxford English dictionary page 3361, “sense by which a material object is perceived by means of contact with it by - of some part of the body - fingertips. In context the meaning continues: “A deep - figurative sense is making an impression upon the mind/soul guilty of affecting - injurious reproach, taint, stain, to affect physically in way by contact to make an impression upon. Act contagiously upon.”

In other words Jesus commanded Mary Magdalene not to affect him to fulfill the law of the High Priest’s stringent practice of cleanliness before entering the Holy of Holies.  Read this for a wonderful study regarding consecration, atonement, propitiation practice of the shedding of blood done by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement. Study Leviticus chapter 16 and Hebrews 2:17; 3:1; 4:14—5:10; 6:20; 7:11—8:13; 10:12


 Also study the MERCY SEAT - lid - of the Ark of the Covenant and the contents in the Ark of the Covenant. Connect this with the 3 parts of the Temple. The Holy of Holies, the inner court and the outer court.  Holy of Holies = Our SPIRIT, Inner Court = our SOUL.  Outer Court = our BODY. 

Next, let's study the Resurrection by reading together Colossians 3:1 "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. * note metaphor.  See Note 2 for the complete study on the Metaphor of on - at the right hand of God meaning all authority is given to Christ by the Father. This does NOT mean there are 2 GODS sitting next to each other. 


Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.


For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

 

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

 

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

 

For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:


In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

 

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

 

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

 

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

 

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

 

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

 

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

 

And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

 

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

 

and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Jesus Christ is the ONLY PERSON - Body of God. There are NOT 3 separate persons.  God the Father is Spirit - The Spirit of God that no man has seen. God the Father is not an old man sitting in His throne next to another throne for His Son. There is only 1 throne. At least 12 verses prove this.

Now to discuss God existing as SOUL - SPIRIT within Jesus Christ. See Note 2 below for detailed study.  

Also in note 2 is the discussion and study of the Holy Spirit is NOT a separate GOD PERSON, but rather IS the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ. Read and study and meditate on these two scriptures:

Galatians 4:4-7 and Romans 8:9-11 and Philippians 1:19.

I pray this study open the eyes of those who you’ve predestined to know and encourage those who do now know. Amen!  Maranatha!

Part 3 Proving Godhead Refuting Trinity with The NOUN (thethirdheaventraveler.com)



Come Meet my Kinsman Redeemer



https://www.thethirdheaventraveler.com/2021/10/come-meet-my-kinsman-redeemer.html



Excerpt from Link regarding Only one "Person "in the Godhead and NOT 3 as in the Pagan Trinity.


Definition of terms:   Noun - Is a part of speech that names something as a person, place, thing, or idea.  

 

There are two types of Nouns:  The Concrete Noun and the Abstract Noun.

 

Concrete Noun:  A noun describing a person, physical bodily tangible persons  that can only be experienced with the 5 senses. 

 

Abstract Noun:  A Noun that is immaterial, intangible of things that do not exist as physical objects NO Physical bodies or form. A concept only experienced as an idea. Abstract nouns DO NOT refer to People or Persons. They exist apart from concrete physical existence.   

 

A Person:  Individual, a human being, man woman child. A living body of a human being; The actual BODY; Bodily Figure, Bodily Presence in action.  A physical bodily object; Bodily form. 

 

For the purpose of this Study The Godhead is an Abstract Noun. All so called separate persons the Trinitarians call persons of the Godhead and then throw in the word Trinity are not BODILY LIVING CONCRETE PERSONS EXCEPT JESUS CHRIST.  By their own definition of pure grammar we see that Trinitarians have to "make up their own language" as I will prove here with the historical record of the Oxford English Dictionary Compact Edition page: 

 

If we go into a thorough study of the beginning of the English translation 

 

It is a concept and exists apart from concrete physical form. This includes The Father who remains abstract and not a person although The Father without the context of Godhead would be a concrete noun. The Father or Father without the comma set aside as found in 1 Corinthians 8:6 KJV would be a concrete noun. But again stressing the importance of English grammar we see that the main idea in this scripture is GOD who is spirit and not human being NOT a person who is witnessed and manifested in His visible Image of the HUMAN BEING who is also fully God as a PERSON in the Person of Jesus Christ.   This harmonizes perfectly with the 3 perfect GODHEAD verses (in the witness of 2 or more)  Colossians 1:8 KJV and Colossians 2:9 KJV (it is of no coincidence that Colossians 2:9 follows the warning of Vain Imagination and Philosophy that perverts the Godhead)  as well as 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV.  I discussed this at length in Part 2 of the Godhead proven with Grammar preposition and the preposition OF Blog. See notes below. 



Background studies on The Trinity is Pagan Baal Worship, The Godhead is Biblical and the 2 are NOT the same:

1 Corinthians 8:6 Ephesians 2:6, Colossians 1:15; 2:2, 9; 1 Timothy 6:16


Genesis 1:2; 1 John 4;2, 1 John 5:7-9; Genesis 3:8,9; John 3:13; John 6:46; 6:62-66; Galatians 4:4; Exodus 13:13



Note 3.  Thoroughly understanding the depth of this scripture - renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him.  


Quote by Daryl Gass, 


 “I believe what we are looking at in Col 3:10 is the first (him) can be examined by use of a cataphoric reference. Therefore, the first (him), is not referring to the (new man), but instead as we discussed, (him) is referring to the image of the second (him), who is God, the creator of his human body, Jesus.” End quote.



God is amazing how He works within the Body of Christ. In examining “after the image of him that created him” I had found that 100 % of all mainstream commentary explain the first him as Christ and the second him as “the new man”.  However, I knew intuitively and by logic both “hims” had to be referring to God - Jesus Christ who created all things (Colossians 1:16). In other words, what we’re being told here in Colossians 3:10 is Jesus Christ eternal, the I AM, who is the IMAGE, PERSON, BODY of the invisible God, The Father whom no man has seen and is Spirit, created, made His only begotten Son, the Son of Man in the womb of the Virgin. John 1:14, Colossians 1:16, Philippians 2:6,7 refer.


I arrived at this point by use of the antecedent pronoun, the anaphoric reference, by looking back from the first “him” of verse 10 and going back to verse 1 of Colossians Chapter 3.   I then took the second “him” of verse 10 and went back to the first “him”.  When I asked for confirmation and a second look from my brother in Christ, Daryl Gass, he took the approach in using from a cataphoric reference (the cataphoric of the first pronoun him looking forward) as a diagnostic vs my use of an anaphoric reference (the antecedent of the first pronoun him looking back to “Christ” in Colossians 3:1).  This gives us proof using both forward and back approach to the source and proof of the Godhead NOT the Trinity in a more accurate understanding in that the first him is the Son of Man - God's only begotten Son was created by HIMSELF, The I AM, the Godhead  Jesus Christ who in whom dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily who created all things.

In other words Christ Jesus who is eternal created - made himself as the Son of God (Body - Image - Person) by the will (SOUL) of The Father existing as SPIRIT. We human beings are created IN the image of The Godhead - A body, PERSON,... AFTER the likeness of The God being 3 parts = Body, Soul, Spirit.


God the Father exists as THE SOUL within Jesus Christ Read Isaiah 53:10 see note ….   God the Father exists as SOUL and is SPIRIT.  The Son when dying on the cross shed his blood and poured out His SOUL (life blood) 


Additional study on Pronoun interpretation is central for comprehension.

Zechariah 12:1,3 KJV


The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.


Full text Come meet my Kinsman Redeemer

I testify that all of which I speak of here is witnessed in scripture. It is written:

Before He became the babe in the manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes, Jesus Christ, The Word that became flesh - existed before time as the visible image of God as he now does and will exist for eternity ahead. He is my Kinsman Redeemer.

Adam and Eve saw Him first and hid themselves from Him. Yes from the presence of the Lord God. God is a Spirit and no man has seen him. Who they saw was Him, my Kinsman Redeemer the VISIBLE IMAGE of God, Jesus 

 

 

Exodus 13:13

“And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.”

 

King James

 

 

Galatians

Chapter 4

1

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

2

But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

3

Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

4

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

5

To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

 

Greetings to all:

 

I invite you to come and meet my Kinsman Redeemer

In the spirit of God’s love and by His grace this story burns in my soul to share. 

Come listen whether you be a scholar or unschooled. Though you are of the Baha'i faith or Christian or Catholic. Although you would be a Jewish Rabbi, a devoted Hindu, perhaps a Sikh or maybe you come from a lineage devoted to Islam or you are a Buddhist monk. You say you are an Agnostic or perhaps a dyed in the wool Atheist. To you all I invite you to come and listen.

 

I testify that all of which I speak of here is witnessed in scripture. It is written:

Before He became the babe in the manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes, Jesus Christ, The Word that became flesh - existed before time as the visible image of God as he now does and will exist for eternity ahead. He is my Kinsman Redeemer.

Adam and Eve saw Him first and hid themselves from Him. Yes from the presence of the Lord God. God is a Spirit and no man has seen him. Who they saw was Him, my Kinsman Redeemer the VISIBLE IMAGE of God, Jesus Christ. 

Abraham saw and honored my Kinsman Redeemer as the Lord, who came with the two angels. Shaken, Abraham bowed down and gave food and drink to Him and called my Kinsman Redeemer Yahweh, appearing as man. This includes the times Abraham also interacted with Jesus at Mount Moriah, the offering of Isaac, at the covenant made to change Abraham's name.

Hagar, pregnant with her son Ishmael, alone and humiliated in the desert after suffering the abuse of abandonment from Abraham and Sarah, saw and received comfort from my Kinsman Redeemer. She called Him, God who sees because He not only knew her name, acknowledged her as a person instead of a slave, but He also cared for her, comforted her and gave her hope. 

Balaam met my Kinsman Redeemer on the road riding upon his ass. The ass saw him first, standing in the way with sword drawn in his hand. After beating the ass three times, The Lord made the ass speak and then revealed himself to Balaam.

He was the man that Jacob wrestled with all night and would bless Jacob and change his name to Israel. Saying, “for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Jacob said this of my Kinsman Redeemer: “I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”

Moses was called by my Kinsman Redeemer from the burning bush, saying, "Moses, Moses, ...Here am I. . I am the God of they father the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.  When Moses asked my Kinsman Redeemer what he should call him, God said, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." and over one thousand years later, my Kinsman Redeemer told the Pharisees, "Before Abraham was, I AM."

 

Joshua stood face to face with My Kinsman Redeemer before the Battle of Jericho.  Joshuah looked up and before him stood a man with his sword drawn in his hand. Joshua went before this man and asked if he was with Joshua or for the adversary.  This man, was Jesus my Kinsman Redeemer and answered, "...As Captain of the host of the Lord am I now come."  It was here that Joshua fell on his face to the earth and did worship and said unto him. "What saith my Lord unto his servant?"  And the Captain of the Lord of hosts said unto Joshua, "Loose thy shoe from off thy foot, for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer appeared to the parents of Samson, the strongest man who ever lived. Yes it was my Kinsman Redeemer who told Samson’s father that His name was secret, not to be revealed at such a time. Samson’s father thought he had seen an angel but later realizes he has seen and spoken in person to God.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer met the fearful Gideon and called him a mighty man of valor 

 

My Kinsman Redeemer was the fourth man inside of the fiery furnace heated seven-times more as was witnessed and spoken by King Nebuchadnezzar, “the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

 

Isaiah the great prophet saw My Kinsman Redeemer, face to face in an open vision. He says, “The Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Where the seraphim cried unto another saying: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” And poor Isaiah cried, “ Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” 

 

And praise be to God my Kinsman Redeemer had mercy on Isaiah allowing one of the seraphim, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar to say, “Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.”

 

Ezekiel another great prophet saw My Kinsman Redeemer, face to face in an open vision. 

 

He says, " And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer descended from heaven and rolled back the stone from the door of the empty tomb of Jesus which was crucified and sat upon it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.  He commanded both Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to go and tell the others Jesus (speaking of himself as the Only Begotten Son of God and Son of Man who came from Heaven and IS in heaven John 3:3) is risen from the dead. 

 

Proof here that Christ existing in eternity as the only PERSON - BODY in the fullness of the Godhead, the visible image of the invisible God, is the only Begotten Son of God was born as the Son of Man of the virgin of water and of blood existed on earth as God incarnate as the Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. Isaiah 53 Prophecy was fulfilled when both water and blood came from his pierced side, John 19:33, and is witnessed by 1 John 5:5.  

 

Paul first heard my Kinsman Redeemer's audible voice and then most likely saw Him when Paul was taken up into the third heaven, the very abode of God. Paul could not speak of what he saw.

John saw my Kinsman Redeemer and lived with him daily for years. After the death, burial and resurrection of my Kinsman Redeemer John was taken into the third heaven and saw my Kinsman Redeemer and described Him as follows: "clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as a the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead, And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last; I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

 

I must not fail to mention John also saw my Kinsman Redeemer at the coming second advent: "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords."

 

As for me, I personally met my Kinsman Redeemer that night. I was laid out on the floor by that heavy-handed, cruel taskmaster named ‘alcoholism;’ in a heavy lifeless heap of wasted human flesh. Dying the slow death of years of alcoholism, it had finally caught up with me. I failed to heed my doctor’s warnings. I was dying. I was desperate and somehow by God’s amazing grace, I found the words to affirm my faith to believe I was saved in believing He, Jesus Christ, my Kinsman Redeemer, died on the cross for my sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead on the third day. Hallelujah! By faith I cried out to Him to help me and to save me from myself. He came He did that night and touched and healed my tormented soul. I gave myself to Him and He redeemed my soul and regenerated my spirit for eternity. I could not see him, but my spirit man knew it was Him.

 

 And for this reason, Amazing Grace is and always will be my most beloved song.   I like the man who penned Amazing Grace, John Newton, knew that only God’s amazing grace could save a wretch like me. Hallelujah!

 

Today I glory not in living these past 20 years sober, but in knowing I am His and He is mine. In knowing that my Redeemer liveth now and for evermore. Hallelujah!

 

 

Yes, it was the ultimate plan of God to save me and this I call to redeem me from eternal death. It was announced on that fateful day after the Serpent beguiled and destroyed mankind that God announced to the Serpent that the seed of woman would bruise his head. This was my Kinsman Redeemer who would many years later come from the seed of a woman named Mary.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer was not pre-incarnate before His virgin birth.This language comes from the vain imagination and philosophy of man and after the rudiments of this world. You see, my Kinsman Redeemer has always existed, exists, and will always exist in His physical form: As the visible image of God. Amen!

 

I am legally required by the eternal law of God to be redeemed or I face eternal spiritual death. I had this knowledge in my conscience and knew it in my heart.

 

I knew I was the firstling of the ass spoken of in God’s law that demanded I be either redeemed by the blood sacrifice of an unblemished lamb or be killed. I also knew that I was that wild ass’s colt my redeemer rode into Jerusalem.

 

I was the unprotected widow who needed the protection under law of a kinsman who could legally redeem me from slavery and bondage of a cruel task master.

 

These are the eternal laws of God.

 

I needed a Redeemer and He must be a Kinsman. A kinsman is the same consanguinity - same blood - to be from the same ancestor.

 

My Kinsman Redeemer had to be born of a woman - to be a human being - to be my kinsman. He had to be born of a virgin - the only begotten son of God - to be my redeemer. He had to be born of water and of blood.

 

As Emerson wrote: “Blood is blood which circulates, life is life which generates. ' Every mortal is generated and therefore, that which is not generated is not mortal.”

 

And this is why my Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin in Bethlehem.

 

Because I, being a human being, was born into sin following the fall in the garden by the first Adam. By God’s perfect law, the price to be paid for sin is death. Who will pay this price? By God’s perfect law an innocent life must be sacrificed for the guilty party. The perfect, permanent solution to redeeming me was by sending the second Adam, Jesus Christ, my kinsman redeemer, to fulfill God’s promise of bruising the Serpent's head and saving mankind who was under the law of sin and death.

 

To understand the essential connection to our need of a KINSMAN to Redeem us, please study the book of Ruth the Moabite - a NON JEW can become a faithful follower of God. This story is a foreshadow of Jesus Christ redeeming us when we were foreigners and lost.  Ruth by faith followed her mother -in law Naomi back to Israel after her husband had died. It was only by Boaz, a type of Christ, who was a relative of Naomi - a Kinsman, a mighty man of wealth that Ruth found GRACE by gleaning in his field. Boaz was from Bethlehem. Boaz came to know that Ruth had forsaken her land and followed after Naomi and protected her from the other gleaners and servants.  It was by Naomi’s guidance that Ruth lay at the feet of Boaz as he slept and when Boaz awoke startled, Ruth said, “I am Ruth thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.”  Boaz is so deeply moved he soon agrees to purchase - redeem the land that had belonged to Naomi’s deceased husband and in turn marries Ruth since Ruth is connected to Naomi.  They have a son named Obed, the grandfather of King David in the lineage of Jesus Christ. 

 

Here is why I must share with you dear reader why I’m so moved to share my story. I am eternally thankful that I am redeemed by believing my Kinsman Redeemer came to redeem me from eternal spiritual death, by His perfect sacrifice of dying on the cross for my sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day. I believe this and by faith is what saves me. There is nothing else that I can do but believe to be saved.

 

Amen! Maranatha!
