Theologians teach that the Trinity is the Father,
The Son and the Holy Ghost. By 'Son' they mean Jesus. This is erroneous and
well establishes that the burden of two thousand years of incorrect interpretation
has taken a poor toll. When one places their beliefs upon fact, that belief
then becomes part and parcel of a reality system. When it is drawn from incorrect
opinions (and an interpretation is nothing more than an opinion) you arrive
at a belief system. John's ordering of the Logos establishes what he
'really' said and not what which others presumed or assumed he meant.
The evidence of the ordering of the Trinity has been clearly visible in
the writings of John for two millennia. However, continuing error based upon
the assumption that a preexisting belief was correct precluded reexamination
of that belief. The very first authors of error were the Apostles themselves
and this gave birth to many inaccuracies. Consider this. Nowhere in the words
of Jesus Himself do you find any evidence that He ever said 'Worship Me'.
He always drew attention that Deity Worship should be directed towards The
Father. It was the Apostles who taught that we should worship Jesus.
Now, from a worship perspective, this error is small. If one addresses any
element of the Trinity - he is addressing all of them. 'These Three are One'..
However, from the vantage point of understanding the cosmos, and being totally
unaware of John's precise systemization and identification, the interpretations
built upon the assumptions first proffered by the Apostles have gone astray
ever since. If the premise is wrong, all that flows from it is equally flawed.
Consider these verses from the Gospel of John
Linkword = ONLY BEGOTTEN
JOH 1 14 AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US (AND
WE BEHELD HIS GLORY THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER
) FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH
JOH 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
JOH 3 16 FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON
THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING
JOH 3 18 HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH
NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE
ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD
JO1 4 9 IN THIS WAS MANIFESTED THE LOVE OF GOD TOWARD US BECAUSE THAT
GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH
Great precision must be used in the reading of these verses. The Linkword
'Only Begotten' collects all of the relevant material into one place for examination.
In the first ensemble we see that 'The Word' is labeled as being the
'only begotten of the Father'. 'Only' clearly states that there is only 'one'
with this relationship.
Further detailing on 'The Word' arrives in the very first line of the Gospel.
JOH 1 1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS
WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD
We now have a few factual items to work with.
1. The Word was with The Father at the very beginning.
2. The Word is the Only Begotten of The Father
3. The Word is in the bosom of The Father.
4. No Man has seen the Only Begotten Son, The Word (at any time)
Interpretations have taught that The Trinity is the Father, the Son
(Jesus) and the Holy Ghost. They are unquestionably wrong and this fact is
Jesus 'was seen' for the notable personage He is but The Word has not been
seen. It follows that Jesus can not be 'The Word' and that Father, Jesus and
The Holy Spirit is an incorrect identification for The Trinity.
The reader must be very careful not to get 'hooked' on the word 'God' for
there are three Trinity elements who hold Deity Status and all three have
the right to the term 'God'.
If The Word is the 'only begotten' of the The Father and the Word is not
Jesus, by process of elimination Jesus is the Holy Spirit. A cross confirmation
of this arrives in the structure of the logos and the actual life of Jesus.
Jesus' kingdom begins at the fifth dimension. He rules all that is
at 5d and below. Typically, we call this 'the universe'. Above Him is The
Word who identifiable is the Creator of the Universe.
JOH 1:1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
JOH 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
JOH 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him
was not any thing made that was made.
The Word's role as Creator is clearly visible and stated. It
follows, again, that as Jesus can not be The Word and that He also is not
the Creator of the Cosmos. Instead, he rules the universe that was created
During the Last Supper, the Holy Spirit was called down upon the Apostles
'by' Jesus. He did so and 'could' do so for only one reason. It is His to
command. No where in the writings of John do we see a situation where The
Word commands or controls The Holy Spirit. The only visible evidence directly
links this to Jesus and only to Jesus. It should be noted that, as a matter
of logic, what it ain't is frequently as important as what it is.
The correct ordering for The Trinity is the same as is seen in John's structuring
of the Cosmos. The first three elements are the Creator Father, The Word and
Jesus in this order.
Viewing ensemble #2, we have versing that addresses only Jesus. Noteworthy
is that nowhere do we see mention of The Father. As Jesus can not be The Word,
it follows that hey can not be the only begotten 'of' The Father. Regardless,
He is tagged as being the Only Begotten Son of God. At issue is 'which God'?
By process of elimination Jesus is the Son of The Word and not The Father
and 'The Word' has been clearly labeled as being 'God'. Ergo, Jesus 'is'
the Son of God (The Word).
Ancient cultures, in an attempt to explain natural phenomena, 'believed'
that gods controlled the seasons and natural events.
Theologians have done something similar with their construct of The Trinity.
They paint a picture wherein you have one body and three heads sharing it
instead of collating the obvious evidence and arriving at a different arrangement,
three unique people sharing one spirit - The Spirit of the Creator Father.
Consider the bestowal of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. Peter received
this on a Thursday and not long afterwards was out denying the Christ thrice.
The receipt of the spirit did not elevate his courage, nor did it make him
infallible or all powerful.
He remained the person that he was. So also it is with the Trinity. Three
distinct people joined by one spirit. The Apostles joined with Jesus (The
Holy Spirit) for a common purpose and a common service. So too is the Trinity
so joined but none have given up their unique personalities or individuality
in the doing.
As has already been noted, the Apostles were not immune from error. Matthew's
comment that Jesus 'must have been' the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy of
the birth of Immanuel by virgin birth is , at best, a speculation. In
truth, no one has ever seen Immanuel and the evidence does not support Matthew's
opinion beyond his assumption that as Jesus arrived by virgin birth he 'had
to be it'. Following Matthew's poor logic, theologians 'assume' that the
word Immanuel is also another name for Jesus in that the word means 'God is
with us'. They've neglected to ask the pertinent question 'Which God'?
The naming convention delivered to Mary for Jesus was set by the Archangel
Gabriel. Jesus does not equate in any way shape or form to Immanuel. Isaiah
tells us that Immanuel would have a privileged life (would eat of butter
and honey) whereas Jesus and his parents were working class. There is no
evidence that Matthew or the other Apostles ever met Immanuel or were even
were privy to third hand hearsay about him. Aside from Isaiah's comments
there is no evidence whatsoever that He even existed.
However, let us not be quick too dismiss Isaiah for,
in truth, he did have it right.
JOH 1 14 AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND DWELT
AMONG US (AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE
FATHER ) FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH
We do know that 'The Word' has incarnated as a man and is living upon the
Earth. As Jesus, the Son of Immanuel, came into life by virtue of virgin birth,
it follows that his elder (also a Son of God) would do so as well. This paints
a portrait of two virgin births, not one, and is consistent with the ancillary
evidence and verses supplied to us by the Apostle John.
In discussions with a qualified theologian it has been noted that every
time there is a divergence between The Revelation Code and common Christian
belief, the disparity always tracks back to an interpretation (opinion) and
not to an established fact.
In common religious practice this matters only a little. Jesus holds Deity
status and is a God element of the Trinity. It is noteworthy that this information
was intended to be known 'only' at the End of Days. The logic and purpose
of it becomes clear when the War in Heaven arrives on stage. It was sufficient
that Christian see 'enough' but not all. There was no expectation of perfection
within the confines of mankind.
