Praise the Lord.
As I am completing this, I am recovering from covid but this needed to have an ending so that the great discussions could begin for those that still believe that there are three in heaven.
One thing before adding the finishing scriptures is this piercing question, why would the God of all creation, the ONE that created all that we know to exist, feel the need to create two more spirit beings to help Him complete the over all mission. Or did they all three just appeared simultaneously and start creation together?
See how this trinity notion has no solid foundation to which to be anchored even from a logical standpoint let alone spiritually rooted.
Most hinge on why is He praying to Himself in so many passages? That doesn’t make any sense but they can never show you anywhere in scriptures where He answered Jesus after Jesus prayed to Him. I wonder why that is. Maybe because it was Him showing us what to do and how to do after He left but I’ll let that one marinate.
Let’s finish, well spoiler alert, if you want to stick to your false belief you need to stop reading now and forever be led by that because this is it.
14 “Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. 4 And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.”
Notice what Jesus said in v3 I will come back again and I WILL TAKE YOU TO MYSELF, NOT TO MY FATHER.
You really have to pay very close attention to exactly what Jesus is saying from here on out, and if you want you can stay in the KJV.
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going; so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I AM THE [ONLY] WAY [TO GOD] AND THE [REAL] TRUTH AND THE [REAL] LIFE; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
7 If you had [really] known Me, you would also have known My Father. From now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”
Look at this closely, Jesus is saying it without coming right out and saying it directly, He said if you really knew who I was you would know that I AM the Father then He says you know the Father and have seen the Father because you know and have seen me because I AM the Father.
Now watch what He says AGAIN in v.8-9
8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father and then we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’
He says it so plainly here in v.9 that you just are refusing to remove the scales from your eyes and want to stay blind to truth.
10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you I do not say on My own initiative or authority, but the Father, abiding continually in Me, does His works [His attesting miracles and acts of power]. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe [Me] because of the [very] works themselves [which you have witnessed]. 12 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name as My representative], this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and celebrated in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it.15 “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments.
Why would God need His son to validate anything? So, if we don’t end our prayers in the son’s name, then God, the Father won’t grant the prayer requests. He’s God Almighty, the Father whom we are praying to, why do we even need to bring the son, Junior God into it? We already asked the one we believe is going to grant our prayers. You have to see this.
16 And I WILL ASK THE FATHER, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever—
26 But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, WHOM THE FATHER WILL SEND IN MY NAME [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
Here we go the finale.
Notice in v.16 and v.26 Jesus says that He will pray to the Father and the Father will send the Holy Spirit in His name. GOT IT? The Father is going to send the Holy Spirit.
Now John 15:26
26 “But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, WHOM I WILL SEND TO YOU from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me.
Go ahead, look at your bible in any version you want and it won’t change.
Jesus didn’t slip up. He said what He said.
People of God, you have to decide for yourself now if you are gonna believe the scriptures I have supplied you with or what your pastor, preacher, or organization has told you all these years because at the end of the day, it’s only gonna be you Jesus and the Book of Life and your books that will be there. Ain’t gonna be no finger pointing, yep, I said it.
This entire series was written out of Love for the Truth, God’s Truth and not man’s beliefs. It’s man’s decision making that has us where we are today. You have a choice to make right some of the wrongs. Choose wisely.
Till next week,
