When GOD Came Down

PDF Notes

All through the Old Testament it appears in the words of the prophets that God the Father was mingling with men. Yet since the prophets of the New Testament added their inspired commentary, it doesn’t seem that it was so:

John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

John 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of […]

The Investigative Judgment

PDF Notes

Genesis 3:6-13 – Here, God’s children sinned against His command. The voice of the Lord God was heard, knowing all too well what had occurred, He asked, “Where are thou?” “Who told thee that thou art naked?” “Hast thou eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” “What is this that thou hast done?” Before God pronounced judgment upon sin and sinners, He asked four questions. In those questions He made […]

Third Person of the Godhead

PDF Notes

Who is this ‘third person’ we’ve heard so much about, and can we find that phrase in the Bible?

    • No, that phrase is not found in the Bible, but Ellen White uses it—so what does it mean?

The Bible does reveal that concept, but in other words. Jesus spoke in the ‘third person’ quite often. When He used the phrase, “son of man,” it was then that we can see an application to the concept. Notice, that in most of the 88 times the phrase “son of man” was employed by the prophets […]

Because of the Angels

Because of the Angels

Christ has a head – He is under the authority of His Father.

Man has a head – he is under the authority of Christ.

Woman has a head – she is under the authority of her husband.

Why?

Because of the angels.

Really?

Why???

Because the faithful angels didn’t know what had happened in the conflict over the begotten Son of God and the honored created son of God: Christ and Lucifer. They needed to understand what had happened and what the difference was between God the Father and His Son, so God made Adam to represent Himself, while Eve, begotten from Adam’s own substance, represented the Son.

All of this, “because of the angels.”

Christ was God Essentially

Taken from the only time this quote was not included in a compilation:

“The world was made by him, “and without him was not anything made that was made.” If Christ made all things, he existed before all things. The words spoken in regard to this are so decisive that no one need be left in doubt. Christ was God essentially, and in the highest sense. He was with God from all eternity, God over all, blessed forevermore.” RH April 5, 1906, par. 6

Ephesians 3:9 and Hebrews 1:1-2 speak clearly that God the Father created all things through His Son. John 1:1–3 says that all things were created by Christ, […]
