I wrote to you a few weeks back about things happening in our church I really appreciate your getting back to me and being there
Since then God has given me answers
Thank you for giving your life to Jesus
May He richly bless you and we all remain faithful to Him
Friends in Christ
I’m glad the very little I feel I did could be of service. God can use anyone at any time, huh? Thank you for encouragement.
Hello pastor Daniel.
I am wondering if you are considering writing a Daniel and Revelation verse by verse commentary, it would be very helpful to people like me who also run groups teaching these two books.
I have watched all your DVDs here, they have been of great help.
Be blessed and may the Lord expand your ministry.
Dear Pastor Daniel, Did I hear you correctly? In video #1, That God likes to do things in 3’s ? You mentioned God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit. God + God + God = 3 Gods.The bible says there is only one God the Father. There is also the son of God, and the spirit of God, but only is the Father the true and everlasting God. I think you need to correct this. Please note that I do not know how old these video’s are or if you have changed since it’s recording. I would have bought your series but this statement is stopping me from doing that. I have heard you say in recent video’s that there is only One God The Father, so I do think you have changed your theology on this subject. That is good!!
Hello Vincent. Thank you for calling me to ask further about the details of this concern.
As I told you on the phone, this series was something I started early in 2015. I had JUST started to study the truth about God the Father–the only true God–His Son Jesus Christ, and their Spirit when going into the book of Revelation.
I went into the study as a trinitarian, but left the study (out of obvious necessity) as a believer in the one true God. =)
This series is a bit of my testimony of coming into a further understanding of the truth as a result of studying the most important book for our time–the Revelation.
Thank you for the concern, and pray that I will continue to present the truth as fully as God reveals it to me, hiding nothing.
So are you saying that Jesus is not God and likewise the Holy Spirit?Are you implying that there are no three Persons in the Godhead and that God is not a Triune God?
I believe out of the 48 times the Bible uses the phrase “son of God” that each of them describes Jesus as God’s Son, not God Himself.
Is Jesus God? Yes, by inheritance, by being brought forth from the Father (in just the same way my son is just as much humanity as I am, Jesus is just as much divinity as His Father).
When looking at the sanctuary, there are two stacks of bread on the table of shewbread (representing the throne; see Early Writings 54, the chapter entitled “End of the 2300 Days), each equal to one another–having six loaves. How are they equal? John 5:26, “As the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.” Also, “God is the Father of Christ; Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the counsels of God are opened to His Son.” 8T 268.3.
I do not believe God is a triune God. I have come to understand much better what the Bible actually teaches. Please do this study, look at the 88 times in the New Testament where the phrase “son of man” is used. You’ll notice something astounding… Jesus refers to Himself nearly every single time in the third person.
By the way, the original Desire of Ages which I own, from 1898 on page 671, has the phrase “third person” in lower case–not meaning a being to be recognized, but rather, referring to the grammatical third person of the Godhead–which is Christ’s own Spirit.
How? Because there are only five times in the Bible where the Greek word for “Comforter” is used. Please look at each, and notice the name given to the last one in 1 John 2:1.
There’s much more to study, and it is clearer than anything I’d ever said before about the trinity. Thanks for asking!
So what of 1 John 5:7 which says “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
Thank you for asking about 1 John 5:7. The entire context uses words like “begotten”, “born”, “children”, “begat”, “Son of God”, “witness,” “bear record”, and “testimony.”
There are other words used, but that seems to be the trust of this section. What does that mean? It means that Christ is the Son of God, and many things bear witness to that fact. Reading verses 9-12 it makes it even more clear that what is meant here is about the relationship between the Father and His Son–not about a trinity of one called God. (There are no mentions here of a trinity, nor the nature of God, nor the fact that all three are actually one, as that has never been a Biblical intention of referring to beings as one–they are unified–as mentioned in verse 8.)
Please consider this commentary as well.
God’s blessings on you! Please ask more questions if you have them.
Also, what about
Hebrews 1:8 “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.” why does the Father call His son God???
1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” If this is a description of God, it can only refer to Jesus Christ who was manifest in the flesh, etc.
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” …
… and many other verses
God the Father called His Son God because kind begets kind. (Grass brings forth grass, dogs bring forth dogs, horses, humans, birds, etc.) God begat one of His own kind–a Son.
What’s amazing is that the Father never calls His Son “My God,” though there are at least 7 times in the NT where Jesus called the Father “My God.” twice on the cross, once on resurrection morning with Mary, and 4 times in Revelation 3.12. You see, the Father has no God–He is “the only true God” according to Jesus in John 17:3.
Regarding 1 Tim 3:16, God the Father was manifested through His Son – “God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself” (2 Cor 5:19). Also, “If you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen My Father” (John 14:9).
Yes, in the beginning was the Word. The beginning of what? Question: which came first, the thought or the word?
“Who is Christ?—He is the only begotten Son of the living God. He is to the Father as a word that expresses the thought,—as a thought made audible” (YI June 28, 1894, par. 9).
And, there are many other verses. =)
Simply I want to say “wonderful work”
Your testimony also good
God bless you richly
God leads /useyou to get number of people for his kingdom
Thank you. God’s blessings!
I want to say thank you so much for making these videos. I have recently finished the New Testament and have been exposed to the teachings in the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I am happily studying your videos and I am learning so much. Blessed be you.
Thank you. Praise God! Glad you are learning with me, as I continue to learn each day. =)
1 Timothy 3:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
What does this mean “GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH”
Hello SJ. Thank you for asking. To me, the Bible explains when it says, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” (John 14:9).
Jesus manifested (manifestly declared, in the Greek) His Father while in the flesh. As the Bible says, “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself” (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Also, John 14:10 says, “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”
you mean JESUS is GOD,Right?
