And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:29
And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: forthere is one God; and there is none other but he: Mark 12:32
Can we understand the Trinity, or is it another nonsensical doctrine of man? Is this teaching designed to enlighten our understanding of God, or create confusion?
1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Most who claim to understand the Trinity have the spirit of this world and follow after the traditions of men. Others simply do not study the Word and let their false teachers do their thinking for them. It is only through the Spirit of God that we are able to rightly divide the Word of Truth, and understand the Trinity teaching for what it is.
1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
Apparently the jewish people worship one of the three persons of this godhead, and therefore have a unique and separate destiny without Christ. We, who understand the Trinity to be false, also realize without Christ one is also without the Father. Christians worship all three of these persons in the trinity, but are unable to rationally explain this theory.
Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
Spirit filled believers understand the Trinity to be yet another doctrine of deception, and understand that they are True Israel of God. Many take the verse above and teach that the gentiles will see the righteousness of the jewish people.
However what this verse declares is that the people shall see the righteousness of the King of Glory.
Jesus is that King and Lord.
Matt 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory.
Christ is the King of Glory, and both Mathew and Isaiah enable us to understand the Trinity is not taught as truth. The prophet Isaiah declares that the sun and moon will be darkened when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion (Isaiah 24:23, Joel 3:15).
The sun and moon will be darkened before that great day of the Lord (Acts 2:20, Mark 13:24, Mat 24:29). Isaiah and Joel refer to Yahweh reigning, while Mathew, Mark and Paul speak of Christ. The Lord is one God.
There is no unity of three distinct persons, the definition alone is an oxymoron.
Matt 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Did Jesus Himself not understand the trinity? He declares Himself to be Lord and God, not one eternally distinct person of a three headed trinity.
Jesus told Philip, he that has seen me has also seen the Father? This is not in any way in reference to two persons. Understand the Trinity is a lie.
John the Baptist told the people of that day, to prepare the way of the Lord (Mat 3:3). Isaiah refers to Christ as Jehovah or Yahweh. It is impossible to understand the Trinity as it is in opposition to what the prophets taught (Isaiah 40:3).
2 Cor 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, togive the light of the knowledge of the glory of God through the appearance of Jesus Christ.
One can’t claim to understand the Trinity, and have the full assurance of the understanding of the mystery of God. God is both the Father and also Christ. Jesus said I and the Father are one; He never alluded to two separate persons (Col 2:2-3).
Thess 3:11 Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.
When we remove the word and, in the verse above and below, again we can understand the Trinity as a nonsensical doctrine.
The correct interpretation is;
God Himself even the Father is also the Lord Jesus Christ.
Otherwise we may understand the Trinity in this verse as three without the Spirit.
Those who loudly proclaim they understand the Trinity, look to misinterpreted scriptures to validate their false claims.
2 Thess 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
The word and, used here and in many other verses is used to separate Christ from His rightful position of God.
Instead of inserting the word and, which is a continuative we must refer to the correct word.
In this case and in many others the word and should actually be changed to even so, also or likewise (G2532).
Also, likewise and indeed are used as connectors; if you have seen the Son likewise you have seen the Father.
2 Tim 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, (who is indeed the) Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom
The following verses that utilize the word Lord are all in reference to Christ the Messiah, and Savior for all of mankind (H 3068). How many who say they understand the trinity, can explain how this supposed separate person of the godhead is also known as Yahweh.
Psalms 24:8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
Does the incorrect insertion of words somehow allow us to understand the Trinity more fully? Three of the most incredible deceptive insertions of words are found in the very first book of the Old Testament (Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:6-7).
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil…
The Lord God said, man is (as) one knowing good and evil.
The words of us are added incorrectly in this verse (Gen 3:22). To claim God said man is become as one of us, is beyond ludicrous.
Isaiah 40:18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
To say you understand the trinity and teach others of a God that is three persons, discredits and mocks God. The words God and persons do not belong in the same sentence.
Zech 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
To comprehend one Lord whose name is one, is to understand the Trinity for what it is.
Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.
Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
Isaiah 2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
For the fear of Yahweh they will hide their faces from the wrath that is to come from the Lamb (Isa 13:13). This is not a description of two persons, but of one.
Rev 6:16-17 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, even from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Do you still claim to understand the trinity? Explain to us then, how is it that both Yahweh and the Lamb bring the wrath upon mankind at the last day?
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
And how is it that this same Lamb brings wrath, through a joint effort with Yahweh, and yet is also the deliverer of others from wrath by Himself.
We understand the Trinity for what it is. The doctrine of the Father and the Son having distinct eternal characteristics, and being two unique persons is utter nonsense.
Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.
If Yahweh is not the only savior and He is not one and the same with Jesus Christ, Mathew is very much confused.
Matt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
