Before tackling this subject, I must confess that what you are about to read is considered heresy by your pastor. This certainly won’t square with the teachings of Religion. But, God doesn’t care anything about religion, and neither do I.
In order to receive the truth, you must be open to the truth. Religion closes you off from the truth. This is why God is not impressed with religion. Religion is whatever you practice. Communism, Atheism, Science, and Alcoholics Anonymous are all religions. Conservatism, Liberalism, Body-building, or Nudism, is Religion. Attending Church, Book Club, or Cub Scouts. Rotary-Club, Bird-watching,…..get the point?
If you follow this site, you will see these words repeatedly – GOD IS NOT A RELIGION. To accuse Him of such is an insult, and I won’t rest as long as there is one person left alive on Earth that believes this lie.
Now, where is the best place to start a story? At the beginning, of course, but God has no beginning. He is not bound by time, because He created and controls time. God is Eternal – without beginning – without end.
The Scriptures say, “In A beginning” – not the, but a, is the correct translation. So, in “a” beginning, Elohim (God) created the sky and the land. And the land had became chaotic and empty. Whatever happened between the time that God made the land and the time it became chaotic and empty, I’m not sure. How it became that way, I’m not sure. We don’t know it all, nor do we need to pretend that we do. That is Religion’s job. However, what happened before He created the sky and land (your Bible probably says Heavens and Earth), is written in Proverbs chapter 8, at verse 22.
“Yahuah (God) possessed Me, the Beginning of His way, as the First of His works of old. I was set up ages ago, at the first, before the earth ever was. When there were no depths I was brought forth – when there were no springs heavy with water. Before mountains were sunk, before the hills, I was brought forth, before He had made the earth and the fields, or the first dust of the world.”
So, who is this that God possessed in the beginning of His way? The Words come from an Entity calling Itself, Wisdom. The Scriptures tell us at 1 Corinthians 1:24, that “Christ is the Wisdom of God”. So, it was Christ/Wisdom that was the First of God’s works – the One “set-up” ages ago.
John 1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. But, let’s take a closer look. The word, “Word” is Logos in the Greek. It means the Expression. Logos is the thoughts and words of God. The root of Logos is contained in the following words: ideologue and logic (thoughts), and monologue and dialog (spoken words). So, the Thoughts & Words (Christ) was WITH THE God (Ton Theon in Greek) and the Word WAS god (Theos in the Greek).
Notice there is a distinction between the first “God”- Ton Theon, and the second “God”-Theos. Here the sect known as Jehovah’s Witnesses correctly acknowledges the distinction, yet the Christian Church acts as if it doesn’t exist because it would bring questions about their adopted, pagan, invention known as the Trinity. God is not a Religion, nor is He a trinity.
Christ was the first “begotten” or BORN of God. Revelation 3:14 calls Christ, “The Beginning of the Creation of God”. This is why the Scriptures call Jesus Christ, the SON of God. You see, God has no beginning, but His Son does. And the Son’s beginning didn’t take place when Mary gave birth to a baby in a manger. When was the Son born?
Genesis 1:3-5 “Then Elohim (God) said, ‘Let there be Light’. And there was Light. And He saw the Light, and it was Good. And Elohim separated the Light from the Dark, and the Light, He called Day……” Jesus said, “I AM the Light”. (John 1:5, 8:12, 9:5) He is the Light and the Day Star (2 Peter 1:19)
When God said, “Let there be light”, He took the thoughts (Logos-logic) that were in His heart and mind and He spoke the Word/Expression (Logos-dialog,monologue) into existence. That Wisdom – That Expression – That Logos, that was in the bosom of the Father, was “set-up” (Proverbs 8). Wisdom/Christ became the Beginning of God’s works (Proverbs 8). Christ became the Beginning of the Creation of God (Revelation 3:14). Christ became the Expressed Image (exact copy) of the Invisible God – the FIRST BORN (Colossians 1:15). A Chip off the old Block. Like Father, like Son.
When you see “Let there be Light”, you’ve been conditioned by religion to think of the Sun. But notice it is the first day when God says, “Let there be Light”. The sun, moon, and stars weren’t created until the 4th day (Genesis 1:16-19). SON 1st, then SUN 4th. (Religion prefers the sun to the son – more on that later)
Remember in a previous article, I wrote that God created all things OUT of Himself? He spoke His very own Son into existence, out of His own mouth, when He said, “Let there be Light”. Christ was begotten – born.
Jesus says that He was in the bosom of the Father (John 1:18), and that He came OUT FROM God (John 16:27).
This is how God could then say, “Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness”. And these great learned theologians have been perplexed over the meaning of these words for centuries.
Why does your seminary trained preacher with a doctorate degree not know this, but an uneducated hick, like me, does? Because your pastor’s teacher is Religion. My Teacher is the Spirit of God. You see, I’m just dumb enough to study the Scriptures, and trust God, and God alone for understanding. He is the Source of all things, including Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding. Scripture says that if we lack Wisdom, to ask it of God, who gives it out liberally. If you believe it, try it.
But I’m not the only one with this knowledge. There are many of God’s people in this world who have discovered this. In fact, there was a group of early believers in the first centuries after Christ, called Arians (spelled similar to Aryans) who believed this very same thing, but they were branded as heretics and censored, silenced, and persecuted by those in authority – those in Religion. Religion hates competition – especially the truth. But, I digress…..
So to recap, we know the origin of the Creator, Yahuah Alahiym (Yahweh Elohim) or God Almighty. He had no origin. He Is, Was, and always Shall Be. I AM THAT I AM. Eternally Present. Without beginning -without end. He is Now. He is Presence. The Ever-Living Mighty One. The Source of All That Is.
The Origin of the Son was thus – In God’s Heart, Mind, or Bosom; in His Thoughts, was the Logos – the Word – the Expression. When Yahuah said, “Let there Be Light”, the Light came forth and it was Good. Then a more accurate translation of John 16:27 shows Christ saying, “I came out of the midst of God”. Where did you come from, Jesus? Bethlehem? Nazareth? Judea? I came OUT OF the midst of God.
So, where did you and I come from? The same Place. And after we were created, as spirit beings, Scripture declares, “I (God) have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High.” (Psalms 82:6).
There are other Psalms that mention the existence of these gods and other verses referring to the sons of God, who appear before Yahuah in another realm, in the book of Job, in particular. 1 Corinthians 8:5 speaks of there being many gods, but acknowledging the Father as above them all. God even told the prophet Jeremiah that He KNEW him BEFORE he formed him in his mother’s womb. The Apocrypha and other early writings suppressed by religious authorities, mention this, as well.
Think of it this way – a fire (God), creates sparks (gods).
It’s really pretty elementary; God created everything to reproduce after it’s own kind. Orange trees produce oranges. Dogs beget dogs. Chickens beget chickens. Humans beget humans – and God begets gods (the difference between Ton Theon and Theos). Then like our Brother, Yashua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ), we are sent to earth to inhabit the body He prepares for us.
John 1:14 says, “And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us”. Likewise, we, the gods, or sons of God, came and dwelt in flesh bodies. Jesus remembers where He came from, but we don’t. That is why Scripture says that He is the first-begotten or first BORN, and UNIQUE Son of God.
Here is a passage of Scripture you may not have read before. I’m almost certain that you’ve never heard a preacher address it. 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 says, “Then comes the end, when He (Jesus) delivers up the Kingdom to Elohim the Father, when He has brought to naught all rule and all authority and power. For He has to reign UNTIL He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy is death. For “He has put all under His feet.” But when He says “all are put under Him,” it is clear that He who put all under Him is excepted. And WHEN all are made subject to Him, THEN the Son Himself SHALL ALSO BE SUBJECT to Him (God) who put all under Him, in order that Elohim (God) may be all in all.” Did you follow that? Christ delivers the Kingdom to His Father (our Father), then Christ takes his place with us, his brethren, and is under subjection to God, so that God may be All in All. The “Trinity” just became a “Duo” according to religious logic.
John 20:17 (Christ speaking) says, “….Go tell my BROTHERS (the disciples/mortal men) that I am ascending to MY Father and YOUR Father, and to MY God and YOUR God.”
John 17:5 “And now, Father – glorify me, with your own Self, with the glory that I had WITH You, BEFORE the world existed.”
Most every epistle written by the Apostle Paul begins with this greeting, “Grace to you and peace from God, OUR Father, AND the Lord Jesus Christ.” Clearly distinguishing the TWO – the Father AND the Son.
Christ told His followers at John 14:20, ” I am IN my Father, you are IN me, and I am IN you.” If Christ was in a “Trinity”, then, according to Him, His followers were, too. See how the Scriptures make the distinction between Christ and God? And also how it says WE ARE ALL ONE? We are all separate individuals, yet our spirits are of one substance. Remember, the sparks are tiny pieces of Fire that come out of the midst of the Fire. A wave is part of the ocean. Collected raindrops become one container of water. Does this make sense? Of course it does. You aren’t near as stupid as Religion thinks you are. So, let the “Church” continue worshiping the Menage `a Trois or Ghidorah, the three-headed monster or whatever you wish to call the pagan trinity. But, let Yahuah Alahiym’s true family, the sons of God, the little gods or godlings, worship the Father through the Son, our Brother Yashua, our KINsman Redeemer.
Remember, Scripture says that we MUST worship God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH.
In Genesis, God formed the first member of His human family, Adam, from the soil. Then Yahuah breathed, into his nostrils, the Breath (Spirit) of Life, and man became a Living Being – a spark off of the Flame – A Spirit dwelling among flesh, and God’s descendants, like Jesus, have been “pitching their tents” among us ever since. Whenever a white baby is born, another spirit inhabits another body.
Notice that I said “white” baby. Here’s where I will lose many of you. Adam means – ruddy, rosy, to blush, to show blood in the face. There is no question that Adam was white. You can do the research yourself. Prove me wrong, if you disagree. Now, the question becomes, “What difference does it make?” Well, we will just have to leave that for a future article.
If you are familiar with Scripture, you may recall a rebellious angel/spirit called Satan, who was deported, along with a third of the other angels/spirits. This Satan (Sha-tan/Satan-el) became determined to corrupt the bloodline of Adam, creating a mess that still plagues us today. This, too will be addressed at a future time.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this writing, but I pray that I’ve caused you to think, and to, at least, look at things in a different way, rather than blindly trusting in religious tradition.
Until next time, remember, you are free to believe anything you choose, so don’t let someone or something else choose for you. If Religion forces it’s doctrine on you, then you are a slave to Religion, but Christ says, “IF you CONTINUE in MY Word, then you are truly my disciples (students), THEN you WILL know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” And he whom the Son sets free, is free indeed.
