How can We Expect to Reign With Christ For 1000 Years, If We Don’t Understand the Nature Of The Godhead?
Trinity is Satan’s description of God, he is not called the great dragon …which deceives the whole world for no reason; this is a title that God gave him. If he can deceive us about God, then he can deceive us about our future with God. If Satan can deceive us to worship God as a trinity, he then can deceive us into worshipping him, he’s the god of the trinity. God’s cry is through the angel flying in the midst of heaven, Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.
Revelation 20:6 says, Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Through His revelation, the Eternal Father once again gives us a detail view of the Godhead. He that hath part in the first resurrection… shall be priests of God and of Christ. Let’s be truthful, nowhere is the Holy Spirit mentioned as being part of the Godhead; why?
Up until this point in God’s plan, the Godhead has only consisted of 2 God being; the same two beings that John spoke of as in the beginning (John1:1). The same God beings acknowledged by the apostles when addressing the church (the Word and God, God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, and here in Revelation 20:4-6, we see the family of God; God and Christ.)
Those of the first resurrection are called Bless; they are about to join the God family. This is something that Satan could never do, he could not become a member of the God family. But what if he could deceive the human beings concerning their potential? if the Godhead was a trinity and not a family, there would be no room for you in the family of God.
But those of the first resurrection shall reign with Christ. Some versions use the term rule, this word means to be king. When Christ reign He shall be King of kings, and those who reign with Him shall be His kings. They will have all the authority to rule just as Christ, for they shall to be king with Him. They shall also be priests of God and of Christ. (Praise God!)
A priest is one who minister the law, a minister teaches the law and the way of God. These human being who are now in the God family, will be rule as kings with Christ, and teach and minister to law of God.
Now it will come about that In the last days [are we living in the last days?] The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it.
Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
We know that when Christ reigns, He will have kings and priests ruling with Him to teach the nations His way, so they may walk in His path. ONLY THE GOD FAMILY WILL BE AUTHORIZED TO DO THIS!
Very good point, thanks
I will, thanks
I seem to fail to understand what you are saying about the Holy Spirit Gene? I do understand about as you call it the family of God The Father the Son but what about the Holy Spirit?
"When he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself..." (John 16:13).
Jesus taught that the Spirit will not speak of / about Himself. This says to me that the Holy Spirit is capable of speaking of/ about Himself, but He chooses not to do this. The Spirit is capable of speaking as an individual, distinct, personality, but His purpose is to draw our attention to Jesus.
I see what you're saying, but how can God think apart from God? It’s not a matter of Holy Spirit deciding not to speak on his own, the Holy Spirit can only do what God dose because he is the very thoughts of God projected into the world to live in us.
For who knows a person's thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. (1 Cor.2:11)
God reveals things to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
I like the way the New Living Translation reads
But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets.
So my point as I understand is that the Holy Spirit can only speak God’s deep secrets, because God can’t speak against God. So, to me, this has to mean something other.
This is not the doctrine of the bible nor the Adventist church. This is the doctrine of devils and the Mormon church. Humans can never become Gods. God does not have a beginning or an end...
"Humans can never become Gods." I understand why you believe that, because you believe in Trinity; this is the point of my post. The trinity distorts our understanding of the relationship we have with and in God. It said God is not a family, and that human beings can never be in the God family.
Was not Jesus human, did he not suffer and die on the cross as a human like the thieves between him? Was he not place in a cold dark grave like any other dead humans? Yet, he was exalted to the right hand of God. Romans 1:3-4 says this about that:
...concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord...
Jesus was declared the Son of God... by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness. The Moffett says ...and installed as Son Of God with power.
This is what's going to happen to those of the first resurrection, and those that are changed at Christ coming.
But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 1John 3:3 Son of God, in the God family as kings and priest of God and of Christ.
Why do you "think" humans were created in the image of God? God's plan is to bring man into the family of God. Human beings are the only creatures that have this possibility. If it was not for that purpose, God could have just created a planet of apes. Apes do not have that potential.
I never said that God had a beginning and end, I referred to John 1:1, showing two God persons in the beginning of creation of the world.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
Genesis 1:2 there is the spirit, no word mentioned. Your doctrine will only create confusion.
The God head is 3. Holy, holy, holy, call the angels, to each member of the Godhead. Of course the spirit speaks not of himself, like christ, the spirit is subordinate but equal. Placed under christ and the father, he points people to the father just as christ did.
So I guess you're of the mindset that the Bible has been tampered with when Jesus says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit."
Jesus said this:
Joh 6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I hope you do not misunderstand I myself do believe that the Holy Spirit is a person. But by those texts understanding the nature of the Holy Spirit is not a salvation issue.
I suggest that, while the nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery, the fact that the Holy Spirit exists, and that He exists as a distinct Person, is by no means a mystery.
Three living Persons or Individuals.
“There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers --the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit--those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.” (Evangelism p.615)
“the Holy Spirit is the Comforter, in Christ's name. He personifies Christ, yet is a distinct personality. We may have the Holy Spirit if we ask for it and make it [a] habit to turn to and trust in God rather than in any finite human agent who may make mistakes.” (1893) (20Manuscript Release p.324)
I have heard it said that Jesus has two personalities. One personality is embodied in Jesus Himself, but Jesus has a second personality expressed in the Holy Spirit. And the Spirit is really an emanation of Jesus, and is therefore actually Jesus.
I think I've represented the view properly. Please say if I'm not.
