I am a Christ follower who has a God named Yahweh!

For years I have tried to expose the truth behind our assumptions and belief systems that were created and pushed upon man for centuries. Every single one of our traditions has a beginning and most of the time those beginnings have nothing to do with the True God or his Son. In fact if you quote scripture to people directly from the Bible that goes against those theories you are considered to be a heretic even though you aren’t even using your own words. Scripture directly from Christ own words in

John 20:17.

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

show over and over again that Christ wanted his followers to know that he had a God and in his opinion that God was the Father for him and for us all. The biggest statement made here that most miss is that Christ was not talking to unbelievers. Just stop and use you head about this! Christ was talking to his most dedicated followers who knew very well who Christ was at that time and who God was at that time. It wasn’t like they were waiting to confirm who and what God was. So why now, why did Christ wait til now to say such a profound and clear statement. Was this because they didn’t know? Or was it because the resurrection further validated Christ to his followers who his Father and God was? The disciples had seen all the miracles but the last one up to that time. The last miracle to involved the death of the Christ and the resurrection from Yahweh represented the last and final miracle needed to put to bed any confusion. In fact this last miracle is the very cornerstone of our faith…

1Cor 15:14

And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.

So this same statement from Christ is quoted over and over again throughout his walk on earth and most importantly even after he rose and was seated on the throne in heaven. This is the most important part and area that isn’t disputable. Most will try their best to hold on to their theories about the trinity because they are programmed to do so. The church has been pushing this idea for centuries even killing anyone that didn’t believe it. But this issue kills the very theory of that concept of the trinity. Why, because Christ as the risen King seated on the throne of God in revelation still calls his Father his God, still calls the kingdom of heaven His Father’s, and still receives yet another name from HIs GOD( which is very telling as only a being that is superior and the Head to you can rename you), his Father Yahweh. The very fact that Christ has a God over him and that he answers to him fully in all things destroys the concept of the Trinity and this is why people don’t like talking about it. I have friends and family right now that know deep down that this is fact and can’t be disputed and yet they refuse to accept that the trinity is wrong. Even those who believe in the Oneness don’t like talking about that fact and especially don’t like dealing with the death of Christ. Oneness , trinity and any and all theories about God’s nature are all useless. I will repeat again, EVERY SINGLE THEORY ABOUT GOD EVER CREATED BY PHILOSOPHERS OR THEOLOGIANS ARE ALL USLESS. None of it has a single thing to do with God’s word and laws as it pertains to your salvation. God has never and will never base your salvation on whether or not you can explain or believe in the trinity, oneness, and any other term created by man. If you can ever wake up from the confusing theories that has been told to you by denominations throughout the world you will see the simple truth that might set you free from a lot of false yoke that has been placed on your neck. FACT 1. Every single denomination concept has a beginning that existed long after the Bible was finished. FACT 2…Salvation is founded on the Acceptance of Christ being the “Son of God”, the Christ, not based on him being GOD, Equal to GOD, Created or not Created, nor if he is THE FATHER or not. Every single one of these thoughts and more are merely man, not God. Not one single time in scripture has God ever made the requirement for one to pick those concepts to determine one’s salvation. FIND THE PAGE AND I WILL EAT IT. If you ever realize this truth it will open you eyes and renew your mind on what matters in God’s eyes, his word only, not the theories man have created in an attempt to figure God out. Quick secret, no matter what your theory is, you will still be a billion miles away from truly being able to explain God. Sad part is that all denomination confess this truth but yet turn around and claim the opposite with their Trinity, Oneness , and other concepts rules they place on God’s children even going as far as to claim that if they don’t believe the man made theories and leave their particular denomination then Christ’s salvation is irrelevant( Catholics and other’s all do this in attempts to scare believers from leaving the church and ultimately costing them money and support). Therefore, this is reason I am not a Identified denomination. Christ is my direction I take to get to his and my GOD and Father. This is Scripture Truth and the only thing that matters.

The God of Jesus discussion.

Click here for podcast.

This is a very good educational discussion that will finally put to bed some of the issues that I have been talking about for months. Every single thought pattern of assumption and theories are from man not from God’s Word. Man has created denominations and separations with Philosophy created by man. The Bible writers had no such theories or beliefs but yet people swear that the Bible writers believed in the teachings of the trinity.

FACT…It’s impossible that the Bible teaches trinity(as man claims to define it) beliefs when the thought pattern didn’t even exist in the minds of the writers of the Bible. None of the 12 apostles nor Christ taught this pattern during their existence on earth. Yet, all try and teach that this was somehow the belief that everyone had and always had. This is impossible for the sure fact that the concept of trinity has a beginning and that beginning was long after the Bible was completed and writers were dead . So this proves that there is no way the Bible teaches that concept. The podcast is a very great conversation that opens up truth that shows the Bible and Man’s theories are not the same.

Christendom vs Christ followers, there is a vast difference!  


Christendom for hundreds of years has been defined by men, not God. In the name of Christendom the Council of Nicea burned people alive to force the theory of the Trinity on people. In the name of Christendom Rome worshiped false idols and created totems that we still use today. In the name of Christendom,  men mixed Pagan practices and superstitions with Yahweh’s commandments and his Son’s Directions. In a nut shell men have used Christendom as a excuse to pillage, rap, and force their own personal agenda on millions throughout the centuries in the name of our Savior Yeshua. This is the sad truth and one most Christians don’t want to hear about or know about but it’s still the truth. This is how Christianity got a bad name. In fact since Christ return to heaven “Every”, say “Every”, every single act of cruelty in the name of Christ has been done by this sectors of people in Christs body. So it’s no wonder why even the most peaceful Christ followers have such a bad time witnessing and convincing others of the true Agape Love of Christ that links us to our Father and God Yahweh. And regardless of the difference or wrong thoughts you feel about Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses, as a whole they represent, in action and deed, a better picture of Christ’s ways than the vast amount of the churches out there. Are there other peaceful followers not tied into Christendom and all it’s false traditions/ woreship of idols? Yes. But again, there is very little of them. We have to find a way to eliminate denominations and gather as one true church freed of the Pagan tradition and biased violence that has defined Christendom. Only then will we ever be what he wants us to be. Follow Christ ways, not Man! 

Jesus and God(the term God not just Father) are shown over and over again as two different beings.

As you read the Bible over and over you always will find different things. Some of this is because we read what we want to see in scripture and not allow the scripture to tell us what we should see. I know this because it has happened to me. It has happened to all of us, especially when it comes down to our denomination. We are really quick to quote and attach man made up concepts and preach them as required truth for Salvation when the Bible never requires such. We have some denominations out there that flat out believe and confess that the Bible’s direction about how to worship and what to believe only stands as a second voice after what they do and believe, not the source for the direction for them to follow. In other words they believe they set what is right and accepted first then th Bible(Catholics). To me, that’s scary,  but not surprising. Everyone of us wants to keeps our views no matter how many times the Bible corrects that view. Tradition means more to us than the Bible. Tradition for most people creates our own version of God, while the Bible’s version of God remains pushed away or even unknown compared to the image we made up or preached about. The church will preach about the love of God but the Bible also tells us about the absolute soverity, control, and fury of God too. The Bible also shows clear distinct separation of God and his Son, The lamb , while man tries over and over again to ignore the hundreds of verses that separate them over and over again. 
1. Jesus counted himself and his Father as two, not “one.” John 8:17 and 18: “In your own law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid. I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.” Jesus confirmed this truth in John 14:1 when he said: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” There are literally hundreds of scriptures like these that set forth Jesus and God as separate and distinct beings. “Whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the son” (2 John 9). The Scripture clearly recognizes the Father and the Son, but not “both” of them as “one God.”

2. The Bible always portrays God and Christ as two separate beings. Examples are far too many to list, but a few are: When Stephen saw them just before his death, he saw “the son of man standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56); the Church Epistles are authored by both God and Christ; God and Christ rule in the eternal city of Revelation (Chapter 21).

3. Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”John 20:17..Even Jesus tells others he has a God.. don’t you understand the weight of this statement. The risen Christ, with all power and authority “Given”to him tells Mary without doubt that she is to look at the Father as her God and even His. If you are to do this, truly do this for all that it means you can not believe in the Trinity or Oneness. If I can be condemned to Hell for believing Christ’s own words, then so be it. But last I checked Christ is the only one that determines this, not man,not even God, the Father, will judge, he has given that duty to his Son, the Christ and Lamb. And here again, the Bible clearly is making a clear separation of the two. Everything Christ has in power and authority is not his because he owned it , it’s only his because his father who is head over all things, including head of the Son, gave it to him temporarily. 1 Corinthian 15:24-28.

4. The Bible is clear that Jesus is the “image of God” (Col. 1:15; 2 Cor. 4:4). If Christ is the image of God, then he cannot be God, because you cannot be an image of someone and the real person at the same time. If you see a photograph of us, you see our image and you can learn a lot about us from it, but the image is not the real us. Christ is the image of God. 

The list goes on and on and on. Even the disciples like Paul open up his letters with clear separation from Jesus and God. What we do is take scripture like John 1.1and create some kind of hidden code for Salvation. Not having a indefinite article means everything in this verse but more importantly what was Christ view?

Traditionally, things like the trinity and oneness have been shoved down our throats for so long that we defend it with great passion and anger, all without one willing ear to listen or true examination. Why? Because the church has lied to it’s members to make them believe that when man, hundreds of years after the day of Pentecost and thousands of people who didn’t even know about a trinity or oneness belief, started coming up with philosophical debates and concepts to make themselves feel better and important, that this actually has a say in your Salvation. The trinity concept is man’s theory, oneness is man’s theory, even Arianism are all just men needing to make up theories about God to feel important. None of these views must be present in your mind or heart for the Power of Christ’s blood to forgive you from your sins. None of this is needed for your acceptance of Christ sacrifice/resurrection, and the confession of him being the son of the Living God to work for righteousness. If you can ever really see this it will free you from a lot of fear and bondage. Allow good translated scripture to show you truth through the power of His Spirit. Quote from it and believe on it not man’s denominational rules for Salvation or the biased translated versions of the Bible to push denomination. You just have to really study and accept his word not assumptions. But once you see this for yourself the scripture words that you have read your whole life will be seen clearer and your eyes will forever be open and you will wonder how in the world you skipped over that simple truth that the Bible shows us over and over, that Jesus too has a God. 

“But who do you say that I am?”

but-who-do-you-say-i-am

Mathew

 

Sometimes in Man’s seeking of knowledge and to be seen and respected, they lose themselves to complicated theories and create their own Doctrines. This has been the path for thousands of years. Because of this, we have today what we see now…Denominations that stretch from one end of the earth to the other. As I have mentioned in my previous entries, I seek Christ without Man’s Theology. The Christ seen in the bible had no such requirements as man has placed on the church throughout the world. Everything from added requirements of Salvation based on creeds,  rituals, to the suits and ties that are worn in service have nothing to do with your salvation. Now, this doesn’t mean that there are no requirements from you for your salvation. You still must accept Christ and his sacrifice and resurrection and as he says himself, “if you love me, keep my commandments.  There is no such scripture that teaches you that those who are really for his kingdom got to continue in their sin’s and live for their flesh. “Be Holy because I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16). But where does the Salvation begin? It begins with one simple question? “Who do you say that I am?”. This is the knowledge and statement that the entire true church is built off of, as Christ said himself. The Author and finisher of our Faith have already told us the requirement of his Church, so who are you to add more. Have you thought about the simplicity of this question? Or have you allowed others to add more than what even Christ asked of Peter for your salvation? Look at this verse! Look at 2 facts about what the statement doesn’t say compared to man’s requirements.

  1. Peter was not asked if Christ was God or a god. 
  2. Peter was not asked to believe in or explain Christ as apart of a Trinity

Nothing about these issues ever came up during the whole ministry work of Christ. No one time did Christ bring to the table the concept of the Trinity, Him being God or a god, and or any other Theology debate that separates our churches from being one because of our denominations. The answer Christ looked for was very simple, He IS the Son of the Living God, the Messiah!

Let’s look at the Just and Merciful God we serve here, the God that is against confusion and look at our denominations that spread across this earth. We don’t represent anything close to what he describes as his Church. If one was just to use the scripture without trying to come up with theories and Philosophies to try and do God’s work for him we would be better off. What if you only quoted the scripture and lived by that scripture regardless if it interfered with Man’s ways, creeds, and theology? If I did that I can stand in front of God without fear of anything. If his scripture says Christ said “The ONLY True God is the Father” (John 17:3)and I quoted that scripture and taught that to others because that is what is said instead of trying to read into it and create other concepts, The God we serve wouldn’t and couldn’t condemn me for that. But if I take that same scripture and start creating other thoughts and basis for that statement elsewhere, then I’m doing something that isn’t needed or required of God and then it’s me who is doing this. This leads to sin and judgment especially if I’m wrong about that path. This is something God could judge me for. Where we fail is that we as a man, have to be able to explain everything(pride) to make it fit our comfort levels, the way our society operates now 2000 years later, etc, etc. We take that scripture and then put it up against another scripture in an effort to try and make it fit Man’s reasoning. And while this is needed sometimes, it isn’t when it comes to the requirement of man to do so connecting it to your salvation. Example: Isaiah 9:6 says Christ would be Called Mighty God. What man does is takes that scripture and John 17:3 and they try and make sense of the scripture’s seemly conflict. This then creates a theory base that spreads into other areas and before long what you have is a denomination based on two or more different ways to look at those scriptures instead of just accepting that they say this and leave it to God to explain once you stand in front of him. During my walk, I have found that if you look hard enough and unbiasedly, you will find something in scripture that could be used to support every single theory in every denomination on the planet. But the simple truth is the words in the scripture never change even if they go against those theories and denominations of others. The Words in the Scriptures are the same for the most part(different translations, of course, play a role) and if you can ever see that there is safety in them over trying to battle through the creeds and doctrines of man, you will find peace. Again, keep in mind, if you believe in only his Word and quote his Word for your direction in life, God will not Judge you for this. But if you theorize and create different thoughts and doctrines in your attempt to show you have figured it out and are wrong, you can be judged for this and God have mercy on you if you have led others down that road as well. Salvation begins with Christ being the Son of the living God and The awaited Messiah. It is completed in the faith that he died for your sins and rose 3 days and 3 nights later. Not one single scripture requires you to explain Christ as God, a god, trinity or anything more for your salvation to count.
