- I live with a mindset of being set apart.
- I don’t care about what they argue over in politics, I care about what they all agree to
- I don’t play political dissensions
- I follow the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
- There is no longevity in this current scheme.
- The majority is against me, not for me.
- This world is controlled by satan, so when I see anyone propped up and supported by this system, they have sold out in some fashion.
- Everything we see about Donald Trump is about the collapse of the old-world order

I was a former Muslim. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ I was shown the truth by a friend of mine, and have since embraced the Messiah our Father Abraham and the prophets pointed towards. The One we were waiting for.
Muslims worship a god by the name of Allah. They also give him ninety-nine other names (the ʾasmāʾu llāhi l-ḥusnā). The question that naturally arises is who or what is this Allah? Where did the Muslims derive their ideas of Allah’s nature and attributes?
Historical Source of Islam:
Historians, linguists, and archeologists have dug into this question for over a century. Various archeological digs in Arabia and throughout the Middle East have uncovered the answer: Islam is a modern version of the ancient fertility religion of the moon god. Once this is grasped, the rise and history of Islam becomes clear.
The Arab conquests were made possible because the central powers in the Middle East had exhausted themselves in wars against each other. They were not able to fight off wave after wave of Arab armies which subdued entire nations with merciless slaughter, rape and plunder.
The Arabs destroyed some of the wonders of the ancient world such as the world famous library in Alexandria, Egypt, They destroyed many ancient churches and synagogues. Anthropologists have recorded how the Arabs destroyed the cultural heritage of any nation which fell under their sword.
Who were these Arabs? They obviously were not Christians because they destroyed churches and murdered priests wherever they went. Obviously, they were not Jews because they persecuted Jews without pity. This is seen today in their hatred of Israel and the many wars and acts of terrorism waged against Jews throughout the world.
If the Arab hordes which swept over the ancient world were not Christians or Jews, then what were they? They were pagans who worshipped a pagan god called Allah and followed pagan rites which were practiced in Arabia long before the religion of Islam evolved.
Islam Denies the Trinity:
These facts of history reveal that Islam does not worship the same God worshipped by Christians. Why?
Christians worship one God in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But Islam denies the Holy Trinity and worships a different deity called Allah who is not a Father and who has no son.
Since the religion found in the Bible teaches the Trinity, then it does not take a Ph.D. to see that Islam did not come from the Bible. Thus it is not the religion of the biblical prophets, apostles or Jesus.
Islam’s origins have been traced back by scholars to the ancient fertility religion of the worship of the moon god which was always the dominant religion of Arabia. The moon god was worshipped by praying toward Mecca several times a day, making an annual pilgrimage to the Kabah which was a temple of the moon god, running around the Kabah seven times, caressing an idol of a black stone set in the wall of the Kabah, running between two hills, making animal sacrifices, gathering on Fridays for prayers, giving alms to the poor, etc.. These were pagan rites practiced by the Arabs long before Muhammad was born.
The Crescent Moon:
What religion today practices the pagan rites of the moon god? Islam! This explains why the crescent moon is the symbol of Islam. It is placed on top of mosques and minarets and displayed on hats, flags, rugs, amulets and even jewelry. Every time you see the Muslim symbol of a crescent moon, you are seeing the ancient symbol of the moon god.
Denial Not a Refuge:
Does the average Muslim know that he is worshipping a moon god? No. Does he know why the crescent moon symbol sits on top of his mosque? No. Is he shocked and perhaps angered at these facts of history? Yes. But can mere denial or angry threats refute the fact that Islam is nothing more than a modern version of the ancient religion of the moon god Allah? No. The average Muslim has been kept in the dark by the Mullahs and Imams who would lose their power if the truth ever got out.
In the middle of the confusion of the war on terrorism is the question of the nature of the religion of Islam. Some say that it is a peaceful religion at its heart, that only the fringe extremists are bent on war.
One side claims that “jihad” means a personal struggle against evil in one’s behavior. Others claim that it means conquest of the part of the world that is not Muslim, by whatever means necessary, including acts of terror.
Both sides refer to specific passages in the Koran for support.
For the soul winner, these are not the important issues. Bible believers are asking, “How can we reach Muslims with the gospel which will solve their struggle against evil?”
One way involves God’s love. The biblical concept of God loving the sinner, is foreign to Muslim thinking. To them, Allah is “compassionate” and “merciful,” but only to those who obey him.
Their relationship to Allah is not as father and son but more as master and slave. Allah is not pictured in the Koran as a loving Creator, longing for an intimate relationship with man.
Biblical concepts found in John 3:16, 1 John 4:6-10 (“God is love”) and in the Lord’s prayer where we address God as “Our Father” are nowhere found in Muslim thinking. Muslims memorize the “99 beautiful names of Allah,” but “love” or “loving” is no where in that list.
Author Robert Morey writes, in The Islamic Invasion, “The love of God is the chief attribute of the biblical God as revealed in such places as John 3:16. God has feelings for his creatures, especially man.
“But when we turn to the Quran, we do not find love presented as the chief attribute of Allah. Instead, the transcendence of Allah is his chief attribute.
“Neither does Allah ‘have feelings’ toward man. That concept is foreign to Islamic teaching. That would reduce Allah to being a mere man -which again is blasphemous to a Muslim.”
“The greatest difference between the two faiths is the personal quality of God,” writes Emir and Ergun Caner in Unveiling Islam. “One must love Allah in order for Allah to love that person in return. In Christianity, God loved people first in order to secure their salvation”
The story that Jesus told of the prodigal son illustrates a side of God that is foreign to the followers of Allah. The Koran states flatly that “Allah loves not those who reject Faith” (surah 3:32).
“The Muslim can be totally sure that Allah will never restore a believer who has rejected the faith of Islam,” writes Caner.
Like Bob Williams does in the tract, Who Cares, we must show the Muslim that Allah offers “no love, no sure forgiveness of sins and only empty dreams of a false paradise.” Only Jesus, the God of the Bible, loved us while were yet sinners, offering sure forgiveness, and eternal life with a loving heavenly Father.
A message to my fellow Christian brothers and sisters:
Christians must be prepared to answer the typical objections made against the Gospel. Most of the objections are based on simple logical fallacies. The following is a list of some of the most common fallacies used by Muslims.
Note: The average Muslim does not know that his arguments are logically erroneous. He is sincere in his beliefs. Thus you must be patient and kind in sharing with him why his arguments are invalid.
1. The Fallacy of False Assumptions: In logic as well as in law, “historical precedent” means that the burden of proof rests on those who set forth new theories and not on those whose ideas have already been verified. The old tests the new. The already established authority judges any new claims to authority.
Since Islam came along many centuries after Christianity, Islam has the burden of proof and not Christianity. The Bible tests and judges the Qur’an. When the Bible and The Qur’an contradict each other, the Bible must logically be given first place as the older authority. The Qur’an is in error until it proves itself.
Some Muslims violate the principle of historical precedent by asserting that Islam does not have the burden of proof and that the Qur’an judges the Bible.
2. Arguing in a circle: If you have already assumed in your premise what you are going to state in your conclusion, then you have ended where you began and proven nothing.
If you end where you began, you got nowhere.
Proving Allah by the Qur’an and then proving the Qur’an by Allah.
Proving Muhammad by the Qur’an and then proving the Qur’an by Muhammad.
Proving Islam by the Qur’an and then proving the Qur’an by Islam.
3. False Analogy: Comparing two things as if they are parallel when they are not really the same at all.
Many Muslims erroneously assume that Muslims and Christians share the same concepts of God, revelation, inspiration, textual preservation, the Bible, prophethood, biblical history, conversion, etc…
Because a false analogy is drawn between Islam and Christianity, some Muslims think that any argument which refutes the Qur’an will likewise refute the Bible; any argument which refutes Muhammad will also refute Jesus Christ, etc…
For example, many Muslims claim that Muhammad and all prophets were sinless. They even deny that Abraham was an idol worshipper. Thus when a Christian points out all the wicked things that Muhammad did (mass murder, child abuse, lying, etc.), the Muslims will say, “If you are right, then you must also reject your biblical prophets for doing wicked things as well.”
What he is really saying is, “If you reject my prophet, then you must reject your prophets as well. If Muhammad was a false prophet, then your prophets are false as well.”
The root problem is that the Muslim concept of prophethood is not the same as the Christian concept of prophethood. We teach that prophets sin like anyone else. Thus while Islam is refuted by the sins of Muhammad, Christianity is not jeopardized at all. The Muslim is guilty of setting up a “false analogy.”
Whenever a Muslim responds to a Christian attack on the Qur’an, Muhammad, or Allah by flipping the argument around and applying it to the Bible, Jesus or the Trinity as if Islam and Christianity either stand or fall together, he is guilty of the fallacy of false analogy. Islam can be false and Christianity be true at the same time.
4. The Fallacy of Irrelevance: When you introduce issues which have no logical bearing on the subject under discussion, you are using irrelevant arguments.
Some Muslims argue, “The Qur’an is the Word of God because the text of the Qur’an has been preserved perfectly.” This argument is erroneous for two reasons:
Factually, the text of the Qur’an has not been preserved perfectly. The text has additions, deletions, conflicting manuscripts, and variant readings like any other ancient writing.
Logically, it is irrelevant whether the text of the Qur’an has been preserved because preservation does not logically imply inspiration. A book can be perfectly copied without implying its inspiration.
When Muslims attack the character and motives of anyone who criticizes Islam, they are using irrelevant arguments. The character of someone is no indication of whether he is telling you the truth. Good people can lie and evil people can tell the truth. Thus whenever a Muslim uses slurs such as “mean,” “dishonest,” “racist,” “liar,” “deceptive,” etc., he is not only committing a logical fallacy but also revealing that he cannot intellectually defend his beliefs.
When confronted with the pagan origins of the Qur’an, some Muslims defend the Qur’an by answering, “So what! Didn’t you Christians get Christmas from the pagans?”
This argument is erroneous for several reasons.
It is a false analogy to parallel the pagan origins of the rites commanded in the Qur’an with the present day holidays nowhere commanded in the Bible. What some modern day Christians do on Dec. 25th has no logical bearing on what the Qur’an commands Muslims to do (eg. the Pilgrimage, the Fast, etc.).
It is irrelevant that some Christians choose to celebrate the birth of Christ. Since the Bible nowhere commands it, it is a matter of personal freedom. But Muslims are commanded in the Qur’an to believe and practice many things which came from the paganism of that day.
The Muslim by using this argument is actually admitting that the Qur’an was not “sent down” but fabricated from pagan sources. This means he has become an unbeliever (Surah 25:4-6).
Some Muslims argue that the Qur’an is the Word of God because it contains some historically or scientifically accurate statements. This argument is irrelevant. Just because a book is correct on some historical or scientific point does not mean it is inspired. You cannot take the attributes of a part and apply it to the whole. A book can be a mixture of true and false statements. Thus it is a logical fallacy to argue that the entire Qur’an is true if it makes one true statement.
When a Muslim argues that history or science “proves” the Qur’an, this actually means that he is acknowledging that history and science can likewise refute the Qur’an. If the Qur’an contains just one historical error or one scientific error, then the Qur’an is not the Word of God. Verification and falsification go hand in hand.
The present meaning of a word is irrelevant to what it meant in ancient times. The word “Allah” is a good example. When confronted by the historical evidence that the word was used by pagan Arabs in pre-Islamic times to refer to a high god who was married to the sun-goddess and had three daughters, some Muslims will quote dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc. to prove (sic) that “Allah means God.” They are thus using modern definitions to define what the word meant over a thousand years ago! What “Allah” means now has no bearing on what it meant before Muhammad.
5. The Fallacy of Equivocation: If we assume that everyone has the same definition of such words as God, Jesus, revelation, inspiration, prophet, miracle, etc., we are committing a very simple logical fallacy.
When a Muslim says, “Christians and Muslims worship the same God,” he is committing the fallacy of equivocation. While Christians worship the Triune God of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Muslims worship a Unitarian deity. Obviously, they are worshipping different Gods.
When a Muslim says, “We believe in Jesus too,” he is committing the fallacy of equivocation. The “Jesus” of the Qur’an is not the Jesus of the Bible. Islam preaches “another Jesus” (II Cor. 11:4). The Jesus of the Bible is God the Son who died on the cross for our sins. But the “Jesus” of the Qur’an is not God the Son and he did not die on the cross for our sins. Thus it is erroneous for Muslims to tell Christians that they believe in Jesus, too.
When a Muslim assumes that Christians have the same concept of revelation as Muslims, he is guilty of the fallacy of equivocation. According to Islam, the Qur’an was written in heaven by Allah and has no earthly sources. When we prove that it comes from earthly sources, this threatens the inspiration of the Qur’an. On the other hand, the Bible does not claim that it dropped out of heaven one day. It openly quotes from earthly sources. It uses pre-existing sources without any difficulty whatsoever, thus while the Qur’an is threatened by historical sources, the Bible is actually confirmed by them.
When a Muslim tells you that the word “Allah” has only one meaning: “the one, true, universal God,” he is assuming a fallacy. The word “allah” has many different meanings.
It can be used as a generic term like the English word “God.” Thus it can be applied to any god or goddess regardless if a true or false god is in view. (ex. The “Allahs” of Hinduism.)
The Nation of Islam uses it to refer to Wallace Dodd Ford, Elijah Muhammad, and Louis Farrakhan as “Allah” and teaches that all black people are “Allahs.”
It has been used by some Christians in Arabic speaking countries as a generic name for the Holy Trinity.
It was used in pre-Islamic times by pagan Arabs to refer to the moon-god who was the father of al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat.
It is used by Muslims to refer to their god.
Islam and Christianity do not worship the same God. The Christian worships the Holy Trinity while the Muslim worships a unitarian deity.
6. The Fallacy of Force: The Qur’an commands Muslims to wage war against non-Muslims and apostates (Surah 5:33; 9:5, 29).
Some Muslims use a false analogy to answer this argument. They respond by saying, “Well, what about the Crusades? You Christians use violence just like Muslims.”
It is logically erroneous to set up a parallel between Muslims killing people in obedience to the Qur’an and Christians killing people in disobedience to the Bible. While the Qur’an commands Jihad, the New Testament forbids it.
7. The Fallacy Of Confusing Questions of Fact with Questions of Relevance: Whether something is factually true is totally different from the issue of whether you feel it is relevant. The two issues must be kept separate.
When a Christian argues that some of the beliefs and rituals of the Qur’an came from pre-Islamic Arab paganism, the Muslim will deny it at first. But as more and more evidence is given, the Muslim will often do a flip-flop and begin arguing, “So what! Didn’t you Christians get Christmas from the pagans?” The Muslim has now committed three fallacies:
The “So what!” argument is dealing with the issue of relevance, not fact. You must stop the Muslim at that point and ask him, “Since you are now dealing with the issue of whether the pagan origins of the Qur’an are relevant, does this mean that you are now agreeing to the fact of the pagan origins of Islam?”
The Muslim has also committed the fallacy of equivocation, The Bible is not threatened by historical sources. It freely refers to them and even quotes them (Acts 17: 28). But the Qur’an denies that it has any earthly historical sources (Surah 25:4-6).
He also committed the fallacy of false analogy. The Bible and the Qur’an are two totally different books. The inspiration of the Bible does not depend upon the fate of the Qur’an because what Muslims claim for the Qur’an is not what Christians claim for the Bible.
8. Phonic Fallacies: The phonetic sound of a word should not be used to twist its meaning. For example,
Some Muslims try to prove that the word “Allah” is in the Greek New Testament because of the Greek word alla. But while the word is pronounced “alla,” it only means “but” in Greek. It has nothing to do with the Arabic “Allah.”
Some Muslims have claimed that the word “Allah” is in the Bible because the Biblical word “Allelujah.” They then mispronounce the word as “Allah-lujah” But “Allelujah” is not a compound Arabic word with “Allah” being the first part of the word. It is a Hebrew word with the name of God being “JAH” (or YeHoWaH, YHWH, which is pronounced as Jah’Ho’Vah and in English is correctly pronounced as “Jehovah”) and the verb “alle” meaning “praise to.” It means “praise to JAH.” The Arabic word “Allah” is not in the word.
The same error is found in the Muslim argument that the word “Baca” (Psa. 84:6) really means “Mecca.” The valley of Baca is in northern Israel.
Some Muslims have tried to go from “Amen” to “Ahmed” to “Mohammed!” Such nonsense is beyond belief.
9. “Red Herring” Arguments: When a Muslim is asked to defend the Qur’an, if he turns around and attacks the reliability of the Bible, the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the Crusades, etc., he is introducing irrelevant issues that have no logical bearing on the truthfulness of Islam. He is trying to divert attention from Islam to other issues.
Furthermore, he is assuming that if he can refute the Bible, then the Qur’an wins by default. If he can refute the Trinity, then Allah wins by default. But this is logically erroneous. You cannot prove your position by refuting someone else’s position. The Bible and the Qur’an could both be wrong. Muslims must prove their own book.
10. Straw Man Arguments: When you put a false argument into the mouth of your opponent and then proceed to knock it down, you have only created a “straw man” argument, Muslims sometimes either misunderstand or deliberately misquote the arguments Christians give them.
Some Muslims have built a “straw man” argument that claims that we teach, “The Qur’an teaches that Allah is the Moon-god and that Muslims knowingly believe in and worship the Moon-god and his daughters.” They then knock down this “straw man” argument and claim victory. Of course, we never said such nonsense. What we have said is that while the Qur’an claims that Allah is God and Muslims think they are worshipping the one true God, in reality they are worshipping a false god preached by a false prophet according to a false book.
The average Muslim has been deceived by Muslim apologists who use such logical fallacies without regard to reason, fact or honesty. But there are many Muslims who want to be rational in their religion and thus have an open mind to rational discourse. Once they see that their arguments are based on logical fallacies, they will be open to the wonderful news that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins on the cross.
Worship the True God!
Dear friends, instead of worshipping a false moon god called Allah, you should worship the God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. This one true God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Read the New Testament for it is the true Word of God.
I would like to finish this comment with the Lord’s Prayer (in Arabic):
Abana alathie fi asamawat, li yatakadas ismok, li ya’atie malakotok, litakon mashia tok, kama fisama’ kathaleka ala al ard. A’atinia khubzana kafafa yawmina, wa igfer lana khatayana, kama nahnu naghfer la man akhta’a elayna, wa la tudkhilna fit a jareeb; laken najjina min ashireer. Amin!!!
Praise the LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
The TULIP of Calvinism:
“Total depravity”, also called “total inability”, asserts that as a consequence of the fall of man into sin, every person is enslaved to sin. People are not by nature inclined to love God, but rather to serve their own interests and to reject the rule of God. Thus, all people by their own faculties are morally unable to choose to trust God for their salvation and be saved (the term “total” in this context refers to sin affecting every part of a person, not that every person is as evil as they could be). This doctrine is derived from Augustine’s explanation of Original Sin. While the phrases “totally depraved” and “utterly perverse” were used by Calvin, what was meant was the inability to save oneself from sin rather than being absent of goodness. Phrases like “total depravity” cannot be found in the Canons of Dort, and the Canons as well as later Reformed orthodox theologians arguably offer a more moderate view of the nature of fallen humanity than Calvin.
“Unconditional election” asserts that God has chosen from eternity those whom he will bring to himself not based on foreseen virtue, merit, or faith in those people; rather, his choice is unconditionally grounded in his mercy alone. God has chosen from eternity to extend mercy to those he has chosen and to withhold mercy from those not chosen. Those chosen receive salvation through Christ alone. Those not chosen receive the just wrath that is warranted for their sins against God.
“Limited atonement”, also called “particular redemption” or “definite atonement”, asserts that Jesus’s substitutionary atonement was definite and certain in its purpose and in what it accomplished. This implies that only the sins of the elect were atoned for by Jesus’s death. Calvinists do not believe, however, that the atonement is limited in its value or power, but rather that the atonement is limited in the sense that it is intended for some and not all. Some Calvinists have summarized this as “The atonement is sufficient for all and efficient for the elect.”
“Irresistible grace”, also called “efficacious grace”, asserts that the saving grace of God is effectually applied to those whom he has determined to save (that is, the elect) and overcomes their resistance to obeying the call of the gospel, bringing them to a saving faith. This means that when God sovereignly purposes to save someone, that individual certainly will be saved. The doctrine holds that this purposeful influence of God’s Holy Spirit cannot be resisted, but that the Holy Spirit, “graciously causes the elect sinner to cooperate, to believe, to repent, to come freely and willingly to Christ.” This is not to deny the fact that the Spirit’s outward call (through the proclamation of the Gospel) can be, and often is, rejected by sinners; rather, it is that inward call which cannot be rejected.
“Perseverance of the saints” (also known as “perseverance of God with the saints” and “preservation of the believing”) (the word “saints” is used to refer to all who are set apart by God, and not of those who are exceptionally holy, canonized, or in heaven) asserts that since God is sovereign and his will cannot be frustrated by humans or anything else, those whom God has called into communion with himself will continue in faith until the end. Those who apparently fall away either never had true faith to begin with (1 John 2:19), or, if they are saved but not presently walking in the Spirit, they will be divinely chastened (Hebrews 12:5–11) and will repent (1 John 3:6–9).
Thoughts? Does free-will actually exist, or not? According to Calvinism (a heretical blasphemous doctrine growing in number through its teaching of “Lordship Salvation”), people are basically just machines and have no free-will of their own (no power to make their own choices) and so God must himself re-energize a person with the Holy Spirit to save them, INSTEAD of the person repenting and asking for forgiveness first.
Explaining the Godhead (Trinity) in basic terms:
God is One. This One God is composed of three co-eternal persons. One God, Three Persons. And each Person is 100% God. Imagine a flower with three petals; imagine that if you remove one petal, that one petal is still fully the entire flower. That is the Trinity. One God, Three Persons. A Triune deity.
The three persons of the Trinity are:
God the Father: Righteous, Powerful, Impersonal. The first in the chain of command within the Trinity. The Abba/Adonai. He made himself understood to man through His Son.
God the Word: The second person of the Trinity. Love, Peace and Reconciliation. He is the spoken Truth of God. The Voice (Memra or Logos) of God. In Genesis 3: 8 it is mentioned that Adam and Eve “…heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.”
Note this. They HEARD the VOICE of God WALKING in the garden. They heard the Word, the second person of the Trinity. The Word appears many times in the Old Testament in the form of christophonies (pre-Christ manifestations of the Word). He appears as Melchizedek/Melchisedec [[ (Hebrew: ‘מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶֿק’, “Malkī-ṣeḏeq”; Amharic: ‘መልከ ጼዴቅ’, “Malkīṣeḏeq”; Armenian: ‘Մելքիսեդեք’, “Melkisetek”) the High Priest of God, who has “…no father or mother…” It is interesting to note that Melchizedek/Melchisedec is called the King of Salem. Now, Salem means Peace, “Shalom”. So “King of Salem” is literally “King of Shalom/Peace”. Jesus Christ is called the Prince of Peace. Also, Melchizedek/Melchisedec broke bread and drank wine with Abram in the OT. Jesus did the same thing in the New Testament. Also, “Melchizedek” means “King of Righteousness” (Hebrew: מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶֿק “Malkī-ṣeḏeq”, “King of Righteousness”), a title of Christ ]]. In Genesis 14:18, he appeared as the Captain of the LORD’s armies in the book of Joshua 5:13-14, and as the Angel of the LORD who appeared throughout the Bible [NOTE: when the Bible says “AN angel of the LORD”, it is referring to a normal angelic being; either a Rav-Malakh (Archangel), Cherubim (a Cherub), Ophanim (Wheel), Chayot-HaKodesh (Living Creature), Erelim (Mighty One/Warrior), Elim (Heroes/Divine Council), Hashmallim (Heavenly Body), Seraphim (also called Ikisat, a Serpent. Satan was of this group), Malakim (Messenger), Bene-Elohim (Sons of God), Grigori (Watcher), Shinnanim (Angel of Mercy/Ministering), Tarshishim (Fiery Angel), Memitim (Destroyer/Angel of Death) or Ishim (a lesser angel akin to a divine human, known as Manlike Beings or Strangers). When it says “THE Angel of the LORD”, it is referring to the christophony of the Word.]
Note that the term “angel” can also mean “messenger”. The Word also came in the form of the Burning Bush to speak to Moses, and as God Almighty (El-Shaddai) (since our God is “Esh-Okhla-El-Qanna”, a “Raging Fire, Jealous God”). So, the Word came in many christophonies. But why did He, the glorious God, choose to come in these lesser lower forms? Simple. If He had come in the force of His true glory, he would have annihilated all living beings in his vicinity by the power of his sinless perfect righteousness; no living being can withstand his righteousness in full force. Hence, he came in lesser christophonies. His final form on the earth was in the form of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. The Word of God has two natures: a divine nature (Son of God/Lion) and a human nature (Son of Man/Lamb). The Four Cherubs (seen in Ezekiel 1: 5-11 and in Revelation 4: 6) that serve God each represent the four directions (North, South, East, West) and the Four Elements (Lion= Fire, Ox= Earth, Man= Water, Eagle= Air). The Four Cherubs also represent the four Spirits of the Spaces: Lamas (the South Wind. The half-man half-lion Guardian of the constellation Leo, associated with the month of August), Sed (the East Wind. Guardian of the constellation Taurus who takes the form of a bull with a man’s head, associated with the month of May), Nattig (the West Wind. Guardian of the constellation Scorpio who takes the form of a man with the face, claws and wings of an eagle, associated with the month of November) and Ustur (the North Wind. Guardian of the constellation Aquarius who takes the form of a man, associated with the month of February. He is the oldest of the four). The Four Cherubs are also sometimes used as symbols for the Four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).
The Four Cherubs also represent the various Families of the animal kingdom: the Lion (Wild Animals), the Ox/Calf/Cherub (Domesticated Animals), the Eagle (Birds) and the Man (Humans and Angels). One Family of animals (Reptiles, Insects and Aquatic Creatures) is missing. This is because the one that represented that group was cast down (the Covering Cherub/Anointed Cherub who is Satan). This is why Satan/Lucifer/Abaddon/Belial/Apollyon/Nephi/Aiwass/Moroni/Behemoth/Leviathan/Samyaza/Beelzebub/Metatron/Raziel/Mephistopheles is repeatedly called a dragon, serpent of the sea, beast of the land and “Lord of the Flies”. The Four Cherubs also represent aspects of their Creator, Jesus Christ: as a King (the Lion, Gospel of Matthew), as a Servant (the Ox/Calf/Cherub, Gospel of Mark), as a Human (the Man, Gospel of Luke) and as a Deity (the Eagle, Gospel of John).
God the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost: the third person of the Trinity. Comfort, Strength and Hope. He is sevenfold, being composed of seven spirits: the Spirit of the LORD, the Spirit of Wisdom, the Spirit of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel, the Spirit of Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and the Spirit of The Fear of The LORD. (Isaiah 11: 2 and Revelation 3 as well as Revelation 5: 6)
The sevenfold Holy Spirit rested on Jesus Christ (the Word made flesh) and is available to us if we seek God in the name of JESUS CHRIST.
And this is the Trinity. One God, Three Persons. (Also, I find it interesting that the word “Godhead” appears 3 times in the Bible, and there are 3 Persons in the Godhead/Trinity.) The Three are One, and the One is Three. God is Triune, and the One True God. He always has been.
Now, I will only ask you three questions: was Jesus lying when he said “…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” (John 14: 9)? Of course not! Jesus cannot lie! He is God! This statement (that Jesus is the Father) proves the concept of the Trinity (Godhead).
Now, I want to draw your attention to one particular event: Jesus is in the Garden. He is praying to the Father. This moment is so beautiful and intimate, as it gives us a glimpse into the personal life of Jehovah God (the interactions within the Persons of the Godhead) since before time, space, matter or creation itself.
If you are a follower of Oneness (Modalism), this entire event is a joke to you. It is just God changing “modes” or “forms”, like a clown or pulcinella switching masks. This scene in the eyes of the Oneness Pentecostalist is a silly puppet-show, with God talking to himself like a madman as if trying to entertain the reader like a circus-bimbo. When you see this through the concept of the Trinity, this beautiful and intimate moment makes so much more sense.
You cannot deny that God is One. But to say he is just “transitioning” to different modes or forms is to limit God into a little box of human understanding.
Oneness doctrine was started because the followers of such doctrine could not understand the concept of One God who is Tripersonal. They could not understand it, so they attacked it and called it “polytheism!!!” And said things like “you’re worshipping three gods!!!” Because they could not understand the unique plurality of the One True God (Jesus Christ). Believers in Oneness would rather follow the Monad of Islam than try to understand that “…there are Three that bear witness.”
You cannot deny the scriptures that confirm the Trinity:
1 Corinthians 8:6
2 Corinthians 3:17
2 Corinthians 13:14
1 John 5:7-8
1 Peter 1:1-2
2 Corinthians 1:21-22
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
Jesus Christ was the Trinity (Godhead) in bodily form. So the third and final question would be: do you believe that God contradicts himself?
“Let Us make Man in Our own image.”
May the peace and love of Jesus Christ (the Father, Son and Holy Ghost in bodily form) be with you always.
Thank you so much for clarifying! I thought that is what you meant however words in our language can have multiple meanings as you know. I appreciate your quick reply!
You are a tremendous blessing. My question is the same as Junius. Point #6 when you state that you “follow” the UN Sustainable Development Goals do you mean that you “adhere” to these goals or that you “follow” by watching closely how they are playing out in our world today? If you could please clarify, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for you faithfulness, your hard work and your diligence.
I do not adhere to them, but’s your second part said, “I follow by watching closely how they are playing out in our world today. I should have worded it better on that list. I will fix it
