JUST AS THE DAYS OF NOAH
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men of old, men of renown.
Our Lord Jesus said that before His 2nd coming it would be like the days of Noah. (Mathew 24:37-39) We are presently living in those days. Just as the sons of God lived in that time on the earth so to now the sons of God live here on the earth. Noah’s message was for the sons of God just as Gods word today is a message to the sons of God here.(1st John 3:1-3)
These were not angels of God having sexual relations with women (as is widely accepted among Christianity today) because angels do not marry (Mathew 23:30). What makes a marriage, the act that begins a marriage, sexual relations.
How many people were saved from the flood? Eight!!! Noah was a preacher of righteousness taking the word of God, to the sons of God, who were living their lives here in the flesh. (Hebrews 2:14) They were eating and drinking and marrying, they only had eyes for the material things their affection was on the things of the earth. Colossians 3:1, 2 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Noah received a warning from God about the flood. (Hebrews 11:7) The Bible says that he moved with fear and prepared the ark. In context to 2 Corinthians 6 speaking of the wonderful privilege God wants to give us, allowing us to be His temple He says to “come out from among them and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you.” 2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises (what promises? To be His temple) let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Does our life reflect that godly fear that we read about in the Holy Scriptures? All I can say is; Help me my God!
May the Lord Jesus Christ help us all to understand what it is that we should be doing here in this earth, which is not our home. We are just strangers and pilgrims passing through.
The Apostle Paul said; Colossians 1:9, 10 He did not stop praying that you would be filled with knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. (What for?) That you might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Looking in the mirror of God’s word, what do we see in ourselves? Is our affection on things above or on things here in the earth? Are we like the sons of God in the days of Noah? Once again all I can say is Lord Jesus please help me!
One thing we see in the Word of God in Romans 12:2 Paul says “Do not be conformed to this world” unfortunately we see so many Christians influenced and moved by the culture. They become Christians (who at one time had the power of God working in them and through them) who are in Christ but walk according to the flesh. Paul says that this type of Christians have condemnation. (See Romans 8:1) Paul continues in Romans 12:2 and says “But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Through the Word of God). Why should we be transformed? Paul continues; that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Mathew 7:21 Not everyone that says to me, Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my father that is in heaven.
Whose will am I doing? Whose will are you doing?
I end my words with this last warning from the Word of God. Romans 13:11-14 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
THE LORD IS COMING
The Apostle Paul cries out, saying: “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha."
(1 Cor. 16:22)
On several occasions I have been asked; what is the meaning of the word "Maranatha", which has always been an opportunity to discuss the main theme of the faith of those that follow Christ the Lord, because the meaning of this word is: OUR LORD COMES! And I want to invite all my beloved brethren and readers, that we would give our attention to this very important issue.
We are living in very unique times since we are living in the last seconds of the sixth day of the prophetic week of God's plan. Those of us who are awake to this important reality, as we see "the hands of Gods clock" can't help but to feel two different desires in our being: on the one hand we feel the infallible joy that the wonderful day of our redemption is at the door; on the other hand, we feel the pain and despair of seeing the spiritual blindness of the world that surrounds us, upon whom is the terrible curse "anathema", because they are living just like in the days of Noah right before the flood. Exactly as the Lord Jesus said. (Gn. 6:5).
Among this vast multitude of the careless, are many of our neighbors and friends, and even some of our relatives and family members. And the most incredible thing is that many of our own brothers in the faith, who walk influenced by the world in a "lukewarm" Christianity (Rev. 3:16), having an appearance of godliness, which is fruit of the prevailing spiritual environment of the apostate Christianity that surrounds us. Although it may seem somewhat tedious and routine, using the words of our brother Peter, I also say: " Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance" (2 Ped. 1:12-13). And the well-known subject of all, continues to be the principle message of the Gospel: MARANATHA! Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon!
The Lord said, if the signs which he did at his first coming, had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah certainly they would have repented; and he added, saying:” Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. (speaking to that generation which heard and saw Him Minister)'' (Mt. 10:15). Now, with this being said, I ask: what can we say of our present generation? What will be the judgment of the current generation, which has had the privilege of being eye-witness, not only to the message and the wonders of the Lord, but witnesses to the fulfillment of portentous prophecies that were anticipated, that announce the "signs" of the imminent SECOND COMING OF OUR GREAT GOD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST?
My dear brethren, what can we say to this? Should we continue to miserably waste our time here as fools playing church and being entertained by the devil through the things of this sinful world that has been sentenced to “burn” within a few days (MAL. 4:1)? You that understand the language in which I write (no matter in which part of the world you are reading these words, whether you are a man or a woman, old or young, Minister or a member in the church, with education or not, rich or poor, and even more so, if you are serving the Lord Christ or you are not serving Him), in front of your eyes and through all the forms of communication you are watching like it or not, many of the “signs of the last days” being fulfilled that my Teacher predicted in His Holy Book. (as a faithful and loving warning of his second coming) Many more prophecies are being fulfilled in these days, and the ones that are to come, are certainly the most terrible, and are now at the doors!
Now, does anyone want to judge me for exaggerating? Do it! Does anyone want to laugh? Then laugh! Because by the way, it won’t be the first time that someone has laughed at me for what I say. Because many billions are laughing; but that does not diminish in the least bit the veracity of my God's Word, since He said: "heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Mt 24:35), and those who accept the reality of the time in which we are living (which are the last days), will also accept the admonition of our brother Peter the Apostle, who tells us: "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? " (2 Pet. 3:11-12). And also: “ Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Pet. 3:14).
John the Apostle adds to this exhortation, telling us: " And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. " (1 Jn. 3:3), and also declares the following truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1John 1:7)
In order to "Walk in light" we need to walk in peace, in holiness and love, and HAVE COMMUNION AMONG US; but because of the contrary spiritual environment that surrounds us, we know that it is not easy to measure up to what the word of God designates, Because the worst enemy that each one of us (the sons of God) has is our own condition (i.e. our human nature) and the Bible says in (ROM. 8:7) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.. But what helps us to stay awake and to walk in the fear of the Lord is to consider all the signs that are around us that point to the marvelous reality of the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
There have been more and more natural calamities that have caught the attention of the secular press in this last time in which we are living. The tremendous earthquakes that have been shaking the earth and with them the devastation they bring, registering at an alarming rate like never before in these last days. Likewise the radical variation of the climate that has been affecting the seven continents, whipping some with flooding and others with drought, bringing with it as a logical consequence the scarcity and high cost of food in many countries where not long ago there was abundance; and what about the hunger, misery and even death that in many other countries is already a reality. What is happening, in turn, is the human masses are driven to take measures according to the judgment, and condition of individuals, as a result they are only bringing political, social and moral chaos that undeniably appears before our eyes.
On the other hand, there is the one sign given by the Lord himself in Matthew 24:32-33: "The fig tree that has already sprouted" (i.e. Israel already established and in possession of the beloved City: Jerusalem). With each day that passes, a new prophecy is fulfilled in this land and in this people which is the prophetic clock of God. We also see that every day more and more nations become enemies of Israel, clearly announcing preparations for the fulfilment of the maximum event, THE GLORIOUS SECOND COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS! Just as the prophet Zechariah describes it in chapter 14 of the book he wrote (let’s not take our eyes off of "THE FIG TREE", that not only has already sprouted, but even has begun to bear figs). At the same time, everything that is happening universally, is connected invariably with the "Spiritual Babylon", which is "the apostasy", or "the self-styled religious system called Christianity", with its countless number of "political-religious denominations and organizations", whose members feel authorized to despise, discriminate, hate, judge, condemn and even kill, and all this is done on behalf of "their church" (in other words from their own organization); Many of them justifying there despicable acts in the holy verses of the sacred word of God, which "twist the scriptures to their own destruction" (2 Pet. 3:16). That is not the true Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, but it is that "woman dressed in purple that is sitting on the scarlet beast; it is the great harlot that causes the inhabitants of the Earth to commit spiritual fornication" (Rev. 17:1-5). The universal group described here, is made up of immense multitudes which the “false Christ” presides over ("the Antichrist"), or "the God of this age", "Satan", "The Prince of the power of the air" the "God" of vanity, pride, arrogance, envy and rivalry (1 Jn. 2: 18; 2 COR. 4:4; Rev. 12:9; Eph. 2:2), it is the influence that our brother James the Apostle describes very clearly when he says: " But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.” (James 3:14-15).
" (MAL. 4:1) . That is the same For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.And now precisely in the midst of this scary confusion that is universal, the Lord is calling his children to come out of the midst of "Babylon" (Rev. 17:5) , because the day of his second coming is already at the doors, " you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.” (MAL. 4:2-3). “Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” (1 Ped. 2:1-2); "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Phil. 2:2 - 5), because " the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. " (James 3:17).day, when the Lord says: "But unto
Again, I repeat the signs are shouting that our Lord is coming! And all of us who love his coming, at the very least, will do all we can to live within the order described by His Spirit. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
God bless you.

Statement of Faith
We believe in One Lord and God, Duet. 6:4 and that God has three manifestations Father, Son, Holy Spirit. First as the Eternal Invisible Father, Second as the Son of the God, who is the image of the invisible God the first born of every creature ( Col 1:15 Heb. 1:3) Third as the Holy Spirit. That regenerates and dwells inside every true child of God, because God is Holy and he is Spirit.
Gods Son clothed Himself in a veil of flesh (Heb.2:14, John 1:14, Phil.2:17) and preached His life giving message to His creatures. Then, He gave His "Son made of a woman" (Gal.4:4) as a sacrifice for our sins, He died but He also resurrected to confirm with His people His covenant and promise of resurrection and of eternal glory (II Tim. 1:10).
God, by His Grace, freely gives salvation to the repentant sinner. This salvation is given to the penitent sinner because of the sacrifice by death on the cross and resurrection of Gods Son. Only by God's mercy can the repented sinner obtain justification from his sins, be restored into communion with God and inherit the hope of eternal life. (Lam. 3:22, Rom.5:1-2, Eph.2:8, Heb.9:26, Tit.2:11, I John 2:12).
Baptism is the external, visible sacrament that Jesus commanded the repented sinner to obey after he has believed and accepted the saving grace of our Lord Jesus. After his life has changed because of the genuine repentance affected in his being by the Spirit of the Word of God in order to form him into a new creature in Christ (Math 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Acts 10:47,48, Col. 2:12, Pet.3:21,Eph. 5:26,II Cor.5:17, Rom. 6:4) Baptism should be by immersion in water.
We believe in the gift of the Holy Spirit that empowers the believer to lead a holy life and to do Gods work. God gives the Holy Spirit to the members of the Lord's Church according to the ample teaching in the Word of God regarding this subject (Eph. 4:8-12, 1Cor. chapter 12-14). We reprove any extremism which can produce confusion and prejudice toward the work of God. God is a God of peace and not dissension; therefore, everything must be done in accord with the divine rule, "Let everything, be done decently and in order." God gave gifts to His Church to edify her and anything done using gifts, which does not bring edification, cannot be accepted as being from God.
Israel is the nation chosen by God to be His people (Ex. 4:22, Is. 44:1, Rom. 11:1,2) The Church among the Gentiles has in no way replaced Israel and the Jewish people. We have simply been grafted into the natural tree, because it has pleased the Lord by His Grace to cause "blindness in part" (Rom. 11:25) to come upon His people, the Jews, so that we Gentiles, should love and bless Israel, because "salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22, Gen. 12:3). When the fullness of the Gentiles is come, then the Messiah (whom the Jewish people have been waiting for) JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD, will return and there will be "one fold and one Shepherd" (John 10:16).
What Is The Name Of The Father, Son And Holy Spirit
The main reason why Israel rejected the Lord Jesus, to the point of taking him to the crucifixion was because “being a man” he presented himself as “God” (John 10:33). Israel knew that only the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, is the one God, and there is no one besides Him (Is. 44:6). In a way, Israel had a reason for rejecting Him because it was not given to them at that time to recognize that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, is the Lord Jesus. To those that it was given, they recognized Him and their expressions are written as a testimony for us in the Holy Book; the church, which is the spiritual Israel, knows the name of their God;
Thomas: My Lord and my God! (John 20:28)
Peter: There is no other name… (Acts4:12)
John: This is the true God... (1 John. 5:20)
Paul: God over all things... (Rom. 9:5)
God, in His incomprehensible Holy judgments, brought in a blindness in part to Israel so that they could not recognize the Lord of Glory; and when He was crucified, it removed the "middle wall of partition" that prevented us "the gentiles" from reaching the Supreme privilege to be counted as part of God's people. At the death of Christ the Lord on the cross, the Holy of Holies was opened so that now: “whosoever believeth, shall not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). The Church was born around 2,000 years ago, and the foundation of their principles is based on the same sublime and wonderful truth that has been in Israel Deuteronomy 6:4: God is one, and His name is one. Because “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Heb. 13:8). Now, when reading the letters of the Apostles, we find them full of warnings that the Holy Spirit points out using these unique vessels. Extremely clear warnings, of the apostasy that would enter into the church of Christ the Lord. The doctrines of devils, of the heresies, and twisted teachings that would be introduced to the people of God. Grievous wolves, false prophets, and scoffers who entered according to their evil desires (2 Tes. 2:3; 1 Tim 4:1; Acts 20:29). This terrible warning didn't take long for its fulfillment. While those vessels (The Apostles) lived, whom the Lord chose to be very special pillars in the spiritual building, which is His church (Matt. 16:18), they contended for, and effectively defended “the faith that once was given to the Saints” (Jude 3). But once they were removed; the apostasy appeared! The Apostle Paul, writing to the brothers in Thessalonica, warned them that "he that letteth will let until he be taken out of the way." There was someone preventing so that the antichrist would not sit at that time in the Temple of God which is His church.
After the Apostles died, what was removed from the earth was the visible doctrinal authority which resided in those unique vessels by the absolute will of Christ (this last statement unique vessels, I am pointing out this irrefutable truth that to them and no one else, God made their writings remain within the Holy Book, counted as the same word of God. All those who over the centuries that have passed, and until the present time, they have claimed or are claiming today to have the same right or faculty of the Apostles, are false prophets used by Lucifer, the antichrist to disrupt the foolish). When the church passed the first, second, and third century the heresies of the apostasy that had already been sown by the antichrist when the Apostles were still alive, gradually got stronger. The reason that the Apostasy didn't appear in its fullness before the fourth century, was because of the series of persecutions which the church was intermittently subjected to by the "beast", or of the universal power of the then pagan Rome structure. But the time arrived when the fourth century came and the followers of Christ had to undergo the last persecution (being one of the most terrible), and the course of history changed radically.
The Emperor Constantine came to power and ordered to definitively stop the persecutions against the Christians. The vast majority of Christians of that time (and many believe that to be the case to this present day), considered that imperial order as the greatest blessing Christianity could have received. But the reality is very different! The history of this is very extensive, but it is already written and no one can change or deny it. For this article I only want to use the part of that history that pertains to our topic: the Godhead of Jesus Christ our Lord who is our great God and Savior. Just as Philip asked, "show us the father" (according to that which it is written in John 14:8), For the first three centuries many believers whose minds were troubled and confused by the spirit of error asked the same question, how is it that the Lord Jesus "being a man" presented Himself as "God"? Because there was not direct revelation by the Holy Spirit in their minds (Only God knows why), they began to stray away from the fundamental truth of the existence of only ONE GOD. By the year of 325, there were already many ministers, and believers, who had already accepted the absurd theory of “the Godhead as one God integrated by three different persons” and this they called: The Holy Trinity. By that time Constantine had already won then the appreciation of Christianity (I point out that in those days it was not the persecuted and hidden church in the catacombs anymore, but it was now the growing imperial Church living in the Royal palaces). The Emperor wanting to build a better relation with the now majority who professed the Christian religion, proposed to intervene personally to help them solve some “doctrinal issues” which he observed was “dividing” Christianity. He called a meeting "the familiar and historical Council of Nicaea," where more than 300 bishops were present that came from different parts of the Vast Empire. The Emperor himself presided at that important meeting, thereby giving official approval from the State.
The debate began, with the main theme of discussion the doctrine of the Godhead of Jesus Christ the Lord. At the end of that Council, by vote of the majority and the consequent approval of the Emperor, the FALSE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY WAS ESTABLISHED TO THIS PRESENT DAY as the official creed of the universal Church. To this present day, there are millions and millions of professing Christians of all races and from all over the world, in a countless number of organizations and religious institutions (denominations), who submissively accept the irrational interpretation of the Council of Nicaea. They continue to hold and defend this false doctrine. Just because many centuries have passed and that the great majority believe this false interpretation it doesn't make it true. To this day it is an undeniable fact, that not one of the many scholars and the thousands of books that they have written about the so called “trinity”, have been able to explain in a clear and concise way how it is that God being one, and according to them “at the same time is three."
The Holy Bible which to this day is the Supreme doctrinal authority for the people of God teaches us the declaration of the mystery of Godliness. The only way to understand this is through of the Holy Spirit, to each one of those who has an open heart to receive the revelation and are sincerely putting their Faith in the Lord Jesus, and search the scriptures for the explanation from God Himself. To initiate the reader in the path of the revelation that only God can give, I note the following portions of scriptures and logical reasoning about them, asking the Lord that the following can be a blessing to all of my brothers.revelation
“GOD IS A SPIRIT” (JOHN 4:24). In His Spirit He the incomprehensible vastness of infinity, both in time and distance. His spirit is the infinite Supreme wisdom that has created and controls with a wonderful precision, the immensity of the creation from the particles incredibly small forming atoms, to the indescribable completeness of the millions of galaxies. God in His Spirit is Infinite, Eternal, Invisible, Intangible, has no beginning or end. To this Spirit that is Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent is who the Bible calls “ Our Father” (Matt. 6:9), the “Everlasting Father” (Is. 9:6), the “Father of lights” (Jam. 1:17), the “Father of Spirits” (Heb. 12:9), the “Holy Father” (John 14:26), “God is Spirit and God is Holy” (John 4:24; Lev. 11:44) The Father is the Holy Spirit. In the coversGodhead there are not three persons, for the simple reason that the spirit is not a person. There isn’t two Spirits either, nor much less two Gods (Eph. 4:4).
SonIn God, meaning in the Godhead, the terms: Father, and Holy Spirit, are not for God to divide himself, nor much less to justify the existence of two or three people, but it is to specify His different aspects and functions in relation to His creation, and more particularly in His dealings with His creatures who endowed with the divine Faculty of reasoning, now being both the earthly and celestial beings. God, as the Father presents Himself as the Infinite Spirit, as the Holy Spirit, and this is how He distinguishes His redemptive action and His regenerating power operating in falling mankind. It is the title He uses to name the sublime gift of inspiration and power which has promised and given to thousands of His redeemed.
As a child, He presents Himself in His visible body, because “The Son, is the image of the INVISIBLE God, the FIRSTBORN of every creature (Col. 1:15).It is the visible body of God that is the Only Person of the Godhead. He is the “Brightness of His Glory, and the express image of His person (Heb. 1:3). He is the image of God (2 Cor. 4:4). Because in that body “DWELLS all the fullness of the Godhead BODILY (Col. 2:9). That’s Why it is written: “No man has seen God at any time: the only-BEGOTTEN Son, which is in the BOSOM of the Father, He has declared Him (Jn. 1:18). AND NO man KNOWS WHO the SON is, BUT THE FATHER he to whom the Son will reveal him” (Luke 10:22). There are countless occasions where the Holy Scripture mentions “the father and the son", but never says THEM, but it always says HIM, for the simple and powerful reason that God is only one; I repeat: The father in His Infinite Spirit and the Son in His visible body. Two gods? NO! Nor two people, much less three persons.
Certainly that "without contradiction, great is the mystery of GODLINESS: God was MANIFESTED in the flesh" (1 Tim. 3:16), and those who do not have this revelation cannot reconcile this Scripture that says that "for God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son" (John 3:16). But the scripture is firm and its wonderful response is the explanation that describes with the same word here. “Who came to the world and was made flesh and DWELT among us?” (Jn. 1:14) GOD! Because “Behold a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name, EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is God with us” (Mat. 1:23). Now I ask: Did the infinite spirit reduce Himself to a human body and leave the whole universe empty to be among the inhabitants of the earth? NO! (He clothed His body of Glory with humanity)
This could never be for “Heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee”(2 Chronicles 6: 18). On the other hand, the Apostle Paul tells us of Him, "though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor…” (2 COR. 8:9). "Who, being in the form of God, thought Abraham (Gn. 18:1-13). The same one that Jacob fought with (Gn. 32:24-29). The one who Joshua worshiped as the Captain of the Lords host (Jos. 5:13-15). The same one who appeared to Manoah father of Samson (Judg. 13:3-22). The one Isaiah the Prophet saw in His throne of Glory (Is. 6:1-4). The same one who Daniel saw being adored by millions of millions (Dn. 7:9-10). That same one who Nebuchadnezzar saw joining the Hebrew males (Dn. 3:24-25). This same "wonderful character" before whom all the ancient bowed and gave him worship (remember that all these men knew well that they should only give worship to God). He is the same one who showed His glory before Peter, John and James (Mt. 17:1-9) during the time that the Bible calls: "The days of his flesh" (Heb. 5:7). And it is this same "Sublime and glorious character" that after He "participated like the children of God participated, of flesh and blood, that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil" (Heb. 2:14), the apostle John sees Him full of Glory in his revelation, saying: "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"(Rev. 1:10-18).it not robbery to be equal God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men" (Phil. 2:6-7) who? The image of the Invisible God! Not another body, but His own body; not the second person, but the only person of the Godhead. The one who spoke with
What is the hidden name of this "divine character" that manifests itself with His memorial "YHWH" in ancient times? The Lord Himself declares it to Joseph (Mt. 1:18-21), informing him of the "Name which is above every name" (Phil. 2:9 - 10), "for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be save” (Acts 4:12). THE NAME OF GOD IS JESUS THE LORD. Because if the Lord Jesus is not the same "YHWH", then He could not save, and His followers would be completely lost (Is. 43:10-11). Jesus is the Everlasting Father (Is. 6:9), JESUS is the name of the father (the eternal spirit), JESUS is the name of the son (His Visible image), and JESUS is the name of the Holy Spirit (the same mighty God in His regenerative action).
The father is eternal, but the Bible never speaks of the term "Eternal child", because the infinite spirit never began and never ends (which is the father), but His visible image, His body of glory, "for in Him DWELLS all the fullness of the Godhead BODILY" (Col. 2:9) which means that, the Son, does have a beginning, because He is "The FIRSTBORN of every creature" (Col. 1:15), He is “the beginning of the creation of God" (Rev. 3:14), the “ALPHA and OMEGA", "Beginning and end", "The first and the last" (Ap. 22:13). The eternal spirit (the father) begot His image (the Son). For this reason the Lord said: "For my father is greater than I" (John 14:28). The Bible calls "The Only BEGOTTEN" Son (Jn. 1:14) since there is nothing equal to Him. All other rational creation, both land, and celestial beings are workmanship of God, Col. 1:13-17 (with the exception of His children for we were also begotten); but the Son is not only one of the millions of millions as we all are, but is different than everyone because He is the body of God, just as the eternal spirit is God, the Son is the image of God. Not another God or a second God, but the same and the Only Blessed God (read Hebrews chapter one). Being the Son in this world, living undercover in the veil of perfect humanity (Is. 45:15) to be able to shed His precious blood for our salvation, in His humanity of the perfect man, He is the only man without sin (Heb. 4:15) purposed by the eternal spirit to be two things: lamb for the sacrifice and Supreme High Priest (Heb. 7.24-28).
I mentioned at the beginning that the religious leaders of the people of Israel, rejected the Lord Jesus and even called for his crucifixion because "Being a man" He presented Himself as "God" (John 10:33). But, it was because they could only see His humanity, since God didn’t give them the revelation to see His Divinity that was disguised in the perfect human (Is. 45:15), as He explained it to Phillip (John 14:6-11). This is the same spiritual blindness that affected those who went astray in the beginning of the church (thinking that there is more than one) and which was confirmed as an “official doctrine” when the prophesied apostasy manifested itself in the manner already explained at the beginning of this article. In the present time, after the course of the centuries, there are many millions of professing followers of Christ who had been deceived by the error of the Council of Nicaea, but mighty is God to reveal to all those who seek Him and serve Him wholeheartedly, the Declaration of the "Mystery of GODLINESS" (1 Tim. 3:16), and guide them by His Holy spirit in His Holy Word to recognize that God cannot be two or three, but that God is ONE, and that His wonderful name is JESUS the Lord. The Apostles were fully awake to the wonderful truth mentioned here briefly, and when the Lord sent them to indoctrinate and baptize the Gentiles in the "Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" (Mt. 28:19), they obeyed faithfully what the teacher ordered them to do, and they baptized thousands in the "Name of Jesus Christ" (Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48, 19:5, 22:16). And in doing so, they spoke to a church whose members had been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 6:3; GAL. 3:27; 1 Pd. 3:21). The church is waiting for the return of the Lord according to His promises (Titus 2:13). When I see my Lord in the clouds, I will only see ONE, my Lord Jesus. When I see Him, I'm going to see the Father, I will see my God. No one else.
