Mac Sandlin Delighting in The Holy Spirit

John writes that ANTICHRIST is denying the ONE GOD (Theos) and ONE LORD (Kurios) Whom God MADE TO BE both Lord and Christ and Word and Spirit etc.  A Church of Christ is A School of Christ: the command is to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.  Jesus said MY WORDS are SPIRIT and Word-Spirit or Word-Mind of Christ teaches only what Christ commanded to be taught in the Prophets (by the Spirit OF Christ) and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus of Nazareth and left for our memory by eye- and ear- witnesses of the glorified Jesus Who fills all of the always-pagan roles of father, mother (spirit) and son.  You cannot be a Christian if you are an ANTI-Christian claiming that a spirit PERSON (isn't possible) did all of the work and now leads us beyond the sacred pages.  There is NO OTHER NAME and people who reject The Prophets and Apostles by Christ are sent strong delusions.

The American Restoration Movement had no "trinitarian roots."  John Calvin said that those who think that they know something by the Spirit outside the Word of God are fanatics.  John Mark Hicks ONCE said that the Neo-trinity of the Max Lucado, Harold Hazelip and Rubel Shelly as the SECOND INCARNATION seemed to deny the first incarnation.  That has suddenly so that the sudden unleasing of the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) using Lusted After Fruits (condemned by Amos in Chapter 8) or self-speakers, singers and Instrument players John Called SORCERERS who would be Cast Alive into the Lake of fire follows the Catholic Jubilee pattern.

God abandoned the Jews to Worship the Starry Host (missed Acts 7?) because of musical idolatry replacing "that which is written for our learning".  Rubel Shelly and others demand that we should think of the S.O.N. God as the S.U.N. God and people are calling for "holy fires to fall on us."  To its credit the massive and discording effort to RESTRUCTURE all ANTI-instrumental church of Christ has produced very few fruits.

In Jimmy Adcox Delighting in the Trinity I have posted more than you want to know about the MARK of trying to DELIGHT with God.

The Spirit OF Christ warned about the fall of women into Lamenting for Tammuz IN the temple while the men turned their backs and held the Sun Rise Service worshiping Inanna or Ishtar who descended into "hell" to rescue Tammuz.

1John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denieth

-that Jesus is the Christ?
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? 
Which is the same as: Which is the same as:
He is ANTICHRIST-

God
[Theos] hath MADE that same
 
  Jesus whom ye have crucified,
  
    
both Lord
[Kurios] and Christ.
-that denieth the

Father
[one Theos]
  
and

the Son. [one
Kurios]
he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
[Christ, who is the image of God 2 Cor 4:4]

and HOW sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

Jesus as the Christ of God is the IMAGE: why wouldn't Christ be triplets? The disciples needed to see a SEPARATED father and  spirit (mother)

1 John 2:23 Whosoever   
  denieth the Son  
the same
hath not the Father: 
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am IN the Father, and the Father IN me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:

but the Father that dwelleth
IN me, he doeth the work.

he that acknowledgeth the Son 


hath the Father also
=
ALL Pagans such as the Egyptian Trinity MARKED by Instrumental Noise on the REST day consisted of generations of father, spirit (mother) and little son.  Sophia-Zoe were the pagan DAUGHTERS of a MOTHER. The Christian antithesis is that a voice (not a people) declared that Jesus was to prove that His messenger opposing Hermes (pagan Logos) was the SON of a FATHER. This would make it impossible for Disciples to push the Mother goddess worship as an always-pagan TRINITY.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father--------
Not the NAME of A holy spirit person:
        John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life.
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
      They need to SEE a father god if Jesus was the Son god.
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Original trinitarians say that Father is God's THOUGHT.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter [Paraklete], that he may abide with you for ever;
       Jesus of Nazareth would be a SPIRIT Comforter instead of a PHYSICAL: He did not mean heteros or different
1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate [Paraklete] with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Jesus of Nazareth would be a SPIRIT Comforter instead of a PHYSICAL: He did not mean heteros or different To Paul, the Spirit Lord said "I am Jesus of Nazareth."
John 14:17 Even the Spirit OF truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be IN you. 1John 2:2 And HE is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
A Spirit person DOES not replace Jesus Christ.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless [without a Father]: I will come to you.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep HIS commandments.
Having ALL Authority, Jesus Christ will be the FATHER to the Children God has given to HIM.
Having ALL Authority, Jesus Christ will be the Holy Spirit (not mother)  to the Children God has given to HIM
God maded Jesus of Nazareth TO BE both Lord and Christ and King and High priest.  He sits on God's throne (not a chair up in the air) ruling this world as the LORD (Kurios) of the One God (Theos).  The message is clear that God made it absolutely clear that no one who has been given A holy spirit by obedience to Jesus will understand that until the Return when Jesus will give up His Role as King, Father and Holy Spirit we are given the Sword of the Spirit (the Word) to fight the principalities and powers in high places SELLING the free water (spirit) of the Word.
Messiah was promised to be of the SEED of the Woman and not the creator. He was to be THE SEED of Abraham as the antithesis of the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned tribe of Levi (your worship team).  Then and now people insist that He was one of the god persons:

1John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit OF God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Messiah is come in the flesh is of God:
1John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Messiah is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit OF antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
2John 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

People who claim that A Holy Spirit Person does all of the WORK intend to despise Jesus Christ because to them A CHANGED CULTURE needs for that spirit person (people) to give them authority even when it sows massive discord.
Jimmy Adcox: Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium  Delighting in the Trinity “The Lord our God, the Lord is one.” And yet, God is three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

That is a Catholic Formulation with no Biblical connection: it is ANTI-Biblical.  Doctors of the law who take away the key to knowledge study theology textbooks but have never read the REST OF THE STORY:

Tertullian Against Praxeas c 213 warning against those who fail to understand "trinity."

For before all things God was alone -- being in Himself and for Himself universe, and space, and all things. 
Moreover, He was alone, because there was nothing external to Him but Himself.
        Yet even not then was He alone;
        for He had with Him that which He possessed in Himself,
        that is to say, His own Reason.

For God is rational, and Reason was first in Him; and so all things were from Himself.
This Reason is His own Thought (or Consciousness) which the Greeks call logos,
        by which term we also designate Word or Discourse

        and therefore it is now usual with our people, owing to the mere simple interpretation of the term,
            to say that the Word was in the beginning with God;
            although it would be more suitable to regard Reason as the more ancient;
            because God had not Word from the beginning, but He had Reason even before the beginning;
            because also Word itself consists of Reason,
            which it thus proves to have been the prior existence as being its own substance.

Not that this distinction is of any practical moment.
        For although God had not yet sent out His Word,
        He still had Him within Himself,
                 both in company with and
                 included within His very Reason,
        as He silently planned and arranged within Himself
        everything which He was afterwards about to utter through His Word.

Now, whilst He was thus planning and arranging with His own Reason,
        He was actually causing that to become Word which He was dealing with in the way of Word or Discourse 

For what man knoweth the things of a man,
        save the spirit of man which is in him?
even so the things of God knoweth no man,
        but the Spirit of God. 1 Cor. 2:11
Jimmy Adcox: Delighting in God means delighting in the triune nature of God. In this series, three Harding professors will take us on a journey into the nature of God.  We will grow richer and deeper as we gaze on the wonder and beauty of God.

The "musical worship team" CLAIMS to be able to lead you into the PRESENCE of God: There is ONE GOD and ONE MEDIATOR Jesus Christ who DIED to be the worship leader WHEN we speak with one mind and one mouth that which is written for our learning.  In 2Maccabees that was the "performers" in the holy places.
John 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.
No "doctor of the law" is able to quote the REST OF THE STORY: A Church of Christ is built upon or educated by the Prophets and Apostles and no man  doctor of the Law can know that Christ defined A Church of Christ both inclusively and exclusively and Peter said that those who do NOT teach that which was left for our "memory" are false teachers.
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father,
         save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlastinog life.
John 6:48
I am that bread of life.

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you
, they are spirit, and they are life. 

John 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him,
        I am the way,
                the truth,
                and the life:

                        no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Alexander Campbell said that no man can lead another any closer to God than himself.  The MAN Jesus of Nazareth is the only MEDIATOR to lead you before the throne of Grace.  Look Again:
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:
        and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
John 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me,
        Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
        and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am IN the Father, and the Father
IN me?
         the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
         but the Father that dwelleth
IN me, he doeth the works.
Sure: tippy toeing through the list of passages with "spirit" in them: we be theologians and we do not do TEXTS boast another doctor of the law.

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST DEFINES A CHURCH OF CHRIST BOTH INCLUSIVELY AND EXCLUSIVELY IN THE PROPHETS

Christ in Isaiah 58 commands us NOT to delight ourselves in a secular sense but by hearkening to Christ and eating that which is good--the Free Water of the Word.  Paul EXCLUDED self pleasure in Romans 15 which excludes the DELIGHTING in rhetorical, scenic or musical arts. Why? Because Christ outlawed seeking your own pleasure or speaking your own words when you assemble in His name for REST from whatever you plan to market as "worship."

What they thought was a true delight was:

Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
Isaiah 58:2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

If you missed the RESTORATION principle then listen to the inclusive-exclusive pattern of the REST day.

Isaiah 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places:
        thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations;
        and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach,
        The restorer of paths to dwell in. [Edification]
Isaiah 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, [Greek Pauo]
        from doing thy pleasure on my holy day;
        and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him,
        not doing thine own ways,
        nor finding thine own pleasure,
        nor speaking thine own words:
       
non invenitur voluntas tua ut loquaris sermonem
Isaiah 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD;
        and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth,
        and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father:
        for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Paul repeated that by outlawing self-pleasure (rhetoric, singing, playing, drama, selling) and defined the Church from the wilderness onward: "Using one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning."  To invent DOGMA when it violated any clear reading of Scripture explains why CHRIST is removed or minimized from the public confession and human songs and sermons imposed violating the meaning of SPEAKING.

August 7 and 14
Delighting in the Spirit
Mac Sandlin:
Jimmy.Adcox.Trinity.Image.gif
This is both a lie and a Graven Image
It is the image of 666 and the IVY leaf of Dionysus
The Triquetra Inversed  The ultimate symbol of satanic opposition
Or three Vesca Piscii Pythagorean Christos the COSMIC worship for whom Jesus does not pray

Jehovah has never been described as "three members each with their own centers of consciousness."  However, in Egypt the Israelites had learned about the trinity. It is not posible to believe in the Catholic Trinity or any of the pagan versions without promoting a father god, a mother god (spirit) an a little son god. The SIGN of the Dove was clearly understood to prove  that Jesus was proclaimed a Son of a Father and not the daughter of a mother.

Ivy is the mark of of Antichrist:
3 Macc 2:28 - "None of those who do not sacrifice shall enter their sanctuaries, and all Jews shall be subjected to a registration involving poll tax and to the status of slaves. Those who object to this are to be taken by force and put to death;

3 Macc 2:29 - those who are registered are also to be branded on their bodies by fire with the ivy-leaf symbol of Dionysus, and they shall also be reduced to their former limited status."

Dionysus: Thrace and Macedonia and Asiatic Greece were the scene of the wildest orgies; indeed, Thrace seems to be the country of their birth. In Asiatic Greece, it should be added, the worship of Dionysus-Zagreus came to be associated with the equally wild rites of Rhea (Cybelé) and Atys and Sabus or Sabazius
        They are ennobling in their effects, for they require tending, and thus keep men employed in diligent labour; they bring them together in merry meetings, and inspire them to music and poetry. Thus it is to the worship of Dionysus that the dithyramb and the drama owe their origin and development. In this way Dionysus is closely related, not only to Demeter, Aphrodité, Eros, the Graces, and the Muses, but to Apollo, because he inspires men to prophesy. [meaning sing and play instruments to get aroused]
This is the meaning of IMPURE Threskia Religion.  Eerdman's Dionysus or Bacchus.
Dionysus.Eerdmans.gif
Christ prophesied of women and BOYS ruling over you and Jesus called the MEN of that generation CHILDREN.  The piped hoping to get Jesus to lament or sing and dance. This was the initiation into the GAY PRIESTHOOD because the Jews hoped that Dionysus would be the true Messiah even now with the Vineyard or New Winskins worship.

The Christian Antithesis

John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
THE UNIVERSAL PAGAN THESIS

WomanDove.jpg Nimrod.Tammuz.Semiramis.Trinity.gif WomanDove.gif
She USES speakers, singers and instrument players as sorcerers.  Christ in Isaiah 30 and John says they will be cast alive into the lake of fire.


The Women (always) worshipped Tammuz in Jerusalem while the men held the first sun-rise service which meant 'turning their backs to God.' Ezekiel 8 defines the problem then and now.

/Isis.Mary.Child.Warrior.Mother.gif
If the Egyptians and Greeks derived their arithmetic and astronomy from Chaldea, seeing these in Chaldea were sacred sciences, and monopolised by the priests, that is sufficient evidence that they must have derived their religion from the same quarter. Both Bunsen and Layard in their researches have come to substantially the same result.
Horus: God of day; son of Osiris and Isis; hawk-headed.

Isis: Goddess of motherhood and fertility; sister and wife of Osiris.

Osiris: God of underworld and judge of dead; son of Geb and Nut; brother and husband of Isis.

Primarily the Jacob-cursed and God-Abandoned Levites were guilty of this always-trinitarianism by musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. For this offense God turned the nation over to worship the starry hostS and sentenced them to be carried BEYOND BABYLON. 

The TRINITY intends to dilute the majesty of the ONE Spirit father of the universe as well as to SUPPLANT the role of Jesus as Lord  (Kurios) send by God into His Vineyard. The Catholic trinity was ONE God who always had His Mind, Breath (Spirit) and Word with Him--just like His creatures who are body, soul and spirit but NOT triplets.  Josephus says that the Levites wer Brahmin and were infant-burning priests in Egypt.

Hislop who also condemned instrumental music: * While such is the meaning of Brahm, the meaning of Deva, the generic name for "God" in India, is near akin to it. That name is commonly derived from the Sanscrit, Div, "to shine,"--only a different form of Shiv, which has the same meaning, which again comes from the Chaldee Ziv, "brightness or splendour" (Dan 2:31); and,

no doubt, when sun-worship was engrafted on the Patriarchal faith, the visible splendour of the deified luminary might be suggested by the name. But there is reason to believe that "Deva" has a much more honourable origin, and that it really came originally from the Chaldee, Thav, "good," which is also legitimately pronounced Thev, and in the emphatic form is Theva or Thevo, "The Good." The first letter, represented by Th, as shown by Donaldson in his New Cratylus, is frequently pronounced Dh. Hence, from Dheva or Theva, "The Good," naturally comes the Sanscrit, Deva, or, without the digamma, as it frequently is, Deo, "God," the Latin, Deus, and the Greek, Theos, the digamma in the original Thevo-s being also dropped, as novus in Latin is neos in Greek. This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord (Matt 19:17): "There is none good but One, that is (Theos) God"--"The Good."

Matthew 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good?
        there is none good but one, that is, God:
        but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

So utterly idolatrous was the Babylonian recognition of the Divine unity, that Jehovah, the Living God, severely condemned His own people for giving any countenance to it: "They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens, after the rites of the ONLY ONE, * eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together" (Isa 66:17).

* The words in our translation are, "behind one tree," but there is no word in the original for "tree"; and it is admitted by Lowth, and the best orientalists, that the rendering should be, "after the rites of Achad," i.e. "The Only One." I am aware that some object to making "Achad" signify, "The Only One," on the ground that it wants the article.

But how little weight is in this, may be seen from the fact that it is this very term "Achad," and that without the article, that is used in Deuteronomy, when the Unity of the Godhead is asserted in the most emphatic manner, "Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah," i.e., "only Jehovah." When it is intended to assert the Unity of the Godhead in the strongest possible manner, the Babylonians used the term "Adad." Macrobii Saturnalia.

In the unity of that one Only God of the Babylonians, there were three persons, and to symbolise that doctrine of the Trinity, they employed, as the discoveries of Layard prove, the equilateral triangle, just as it is well known the Romish Church does at this day. *

* LAYARD's Babylon and Nineveh. The Egyptians also used the triangle as a symbol of their "triform divinity."

In both cases such a comparison is most degrading to the King Eternal, and is fitted utterly to pervert the minds of those who contemplate it, as if there was or could be any similitude between such a figure and Him who hath said,

"To whom will ye liken God, and what likeness will ye compare unto Him?"

Mac Sandlin: God eternally exists as THREE PERSON, each is fully god but there is only ONE God.

Son is not the father, shield of the trinity. Proposed stained glass to commemorate.
Next slide.  Doxology, praise word of

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
HOWEVER, THIS CONTRADICTS THE SHEMA WHICH WAS THE "PRAYER" FOR EVERY SYNAGOGUE SCHOOL OF THE WORD
Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [Elohim] is one LORD: [Jehovah]
Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children,
        and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house,
        and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Mac seems to deny that you can be IN the kingdom unless you believe the DOXOLOGY but Jesus affirmed the SHEMA.

Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together,
        and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is,
        Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,
        and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
        There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth:
        for there is one God; and there is none other but HE:
Mark 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
Mark 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him,
        Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple,
        How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD TIME FOR JESUS TO SAY, YES, BUT: you must understand that this ONE GOD is incomplete as ONE GOD.  How could he have someone to LOVE if He did not have a Spirit (Wife) and a Son?  The Neo-Trinity or TRITHEISM was invented in 1938 and first published in 1942.

H. Leo Boles: The Godhead is thus composed of three coeternal and coequal persons; they are the same in nature and essence (basic stuff), but are different, (discrete, dissimilar, diversepersonalities (selfhood as a human).  Boles, H. Leo, The Holy Spirit, Gospel Advocate, P. 20-21  (Each is fitted for different roles.)

However,

"It would be sufficient to anathematize the Arian heresy and confess the faith confessed by the holy Fathers at Niceae, and to anathematize also those who say that the Holy Ghost is a creature and separate from the essence of Christ. (Walker, Winston, A History of the Christian Church, p. 124)

Most of the ancient writers used the word "persona" which is translated in error as person. If we read Paul fairly we will see that he often speaks of the Spirit as the Spirit or mental presence of Jesus Christ living with and walking among His body, His church. The term the Spirit does not appear even once in Romans chapter eight which is used as the chief cornerstone of the direct operation of the literal Spirit in our literal, physical body.

There is no other god with our God:

See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal:
        neither is there any that can deliver out of my
hand.  Deut 32:39

Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and  I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6 ( 45:21, 22)

And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since  I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. Isaiah 44:7

Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not  I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses.   
       
Is there a God
beside me?
        yea,
there is no God; I know not any. Isaiah 44:8

This is what the LORD says--your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things,
        who alone stretched out the heavens, who
         spread out the earth by myself Isaiah 44:24

In the beginning the ELS Cast Down (bara) the heavens and earth and made an ungodly mess: Darkness and Light speaks of IGNORANCE and LIGHT or knowledge.

Hippolytus Book V Satan Worship

If, however, he may not happen upon this doctrine, neither will he understand the necessity of generation, just as an abortion born at night will perish at night. When, therefore, he says, the Saviour observes, "your Father which is in heaven,[Matt. vii. 11.] he alludes to that one from whom the Son deriving his characteristics has transferred them hither. When, however, (Jesus) remarks,

"Your father is a murderer from the beginning, [John viii. 44.] he alludes to the Ruler and Demiurge of matter, who, appropriating the marks delivered from the Son, generated him here who from the beginning was a murderer, for his work causes corruption and death.

Eve was WHOLLY SEDUCED lik a bride led astray and Cain was OF that Wicked one: Cain is derived from a Musical Note or Mark.

Note: all good has its evil counterpart. Lucifer is the evil counterpart of Jesus. The Evil serpent claiming Wisdom, is countered by True Wisdom. Pretend light is countered by True Light. The pretend "day star" is countered by the true Day Star. Therefore, from the creation God gave mankind a choice between good and evil.

Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods (elohim) that have not made the heavens and the earth,
         even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. Jeremiah 10:11

He hath made the earth
........by his power,
he hath established the world
........ by his wisdom, and
hath stretched out the heavens
........ by his discretion. Jeremiah 10:12

When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out (to and fro) the wind (spirit) from his storehouses. Jeremiah 10:13

And I (God) will give thee the treasures of darkness,
        and
hidden riches of secret places,
        that thou mayest know that I,
the Lord,
        which call thee by thy name,
am the God of Israel. Isaiah 45:3

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: Isaiah 45:5

That they may know from the rising of the sun (east), and from the west, that there is none beside me.
        I am the Lord, and
there is none else. Is.45:6

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. Isaiah 45:7

Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it. Isaiah 45:8

There is no other god person like God:

Isaiah wrote to show God's side of this issue:

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else;
        I am God, and there is none like me
, Is 46:9
Declaring the end
from the beginning,
        and from ancient times the things that are not yet done
, saying,
        My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Is 46:10

There is no other god person co-equal to God:

To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Isa 40:25

Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host (mass of people or things) by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Isaiah 40:26

Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Isaiah 40:27

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. Isaiah 40:28

Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he. Isaiah 41:4

There is not other god beside our God:

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: Is 45:5

"Beside" literally means "in the area of" or alongside of me.

With the exception of Genesis in the creation account (which Job called a parable in 29:1) not only is God an I and not a We, there is no other god. Indeed, God says, there is not even anyone similar. Our view of the Godhead, therefore, must agree with God's clear statements repeated dozens of times and endorsed by Jesus. I don't know how God could have made it simpler in showing how the invisible God became visible:

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1Tim 3:16KJV

Both the IMAGE and form or MORPHE point directly to the WORD which was in the beginning: The WORD is that which God speaks: Jesus said that He did not speak on His own but what God BREATHED without metron (meter) He SPOKE are articulated. In that sense Jesus WAS the visible and audible God.

No historian ever called God a PERSON which according to Paul Tillich never happened until the 19th century and this was HERESY.

Perso-na   (prosôpon and prosôpeion). A mask; an artificial covering for the face worn among many peoples in all ages of history and for different purposes, but more frequently in Greece and Italy (1) for covering the faces of the dead and (2) by actors in theatrical performances.

Death-masks of gold have been found in tombs at Mycenae and elsewhere; at Carthage masks of clay were also similarly used. In Egypt they were placed upon the case containing the mummy. See also Imagines.

This contradicts the clear Biblical Teachings: There is One God Who has His Breath And Word and Wisdom With Him.

1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus

Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks
.....to God [1 Theos] the Father for everything,
.....in the name of our Lord [1 Kurios] Jesus Christ.


And God (1 theos) made Jesus of Nazareth TO BE both Lord (1 kurios) and Christ. Therefore, 1 kurios did not exist before Jesus of Nazareth was made to be both kurios and Christ. That means that as kurios Jesus was not a member of the God Family.

God spoke in many was and spiritually through the prophets by the Spirit OF Christ but now He speaks through His SON Jesus of Nazareth.


Colossians 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all
.....In the name of the Lord [kurios] Jesus,
.....giving thanks to God [theos] and the Father BY him.


That leaves out another spirit people:


Hebrews 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest,
        lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
        and sharper than any twoedged sword,
        piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
        and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life.

Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:
        but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest,
        that is passed into the heavens,
        Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest
        which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;
        but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,
        that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need


The ONE GOD speaks to His Agenda without an INTERCESSOR: God BREATHS and people SPEAK. There is no room in this statement of fact for A Holy Spirit person required to keep Jesus on His toes.

The precise origin of this diagram is unknown, but it was evidently influenced by 12th-century experiments in symbolizing the Trinity in abstract visual form — mainly by Petrus Alfonsi's Tetragrammaton-Trinity diagram of c. 1109 (and possibly also by Joachim of Fiore's different Tetragrammaton-Trinity diagram of three circles, which in turn led to the Borromean rings being used as a symbol of the Trinity [1]), in combination with the Athanasian Creed. The Shield of the Trinity diagram is attested from as early as a c. 1208–1216 manuscript of Peter of Poitiers' Compendium Historiae in Genealogia Chri
Trinity.Shield.gif
This is a lie and a Graven Image
Except the Originater of the Trias word said that
The Father thinks of
conceives

The Spirit breaths
The Son of God is the WordS of God.
Otherwise, ALL pagan trinities are
Father supplies sperm
Spirit (Mother) conceives
And Son is born.


The Father is the ONLY TRUE GOD. The Son of God in historic scholarship is the WORD as in spoken Words of the One God. The Spirit is the BREATH of God. The Spirit or breath OF God is stll the power of God and not another person or people. The Word of God is with God and is With God but not as another person or People.

Jesus of Nazareth was a Prophet like Moses and the Son of God when He obeyed God. Jesus SPOKE the Words of God delivered to Him by the Breath of God and therefore became the living Word of God.  When the Israelites refused to listen to God they fell into musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity under the Golden Calf, Apis.  They would be deaf and blind until Messiah came.

Deuteronomy 18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times,
         and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee,
        of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

Only Prophets speak for Jehovah Whom we neither see nor hear.  It was the Spirit of Christ Who spoke through the Prophets as the authentic spiritual message then and in prophecy (1 Peter 1:11; 2 Cor 3; Revelation 9:10).

1Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink:
        for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them:
and that Rock was Christ.

The ROCK is not a member of a polytheistic God family.

Besides being the SEED (singular) of Abraham, the Christ of God took on a "body prepared for me" to be called Jesus the Christ: He is the personified Word, Spirit, Grace, Righteousness and everything God wants us to know. The fullness of the Godhead dwelled in Him and there is NO OTHER NAME we should use.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,
        when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
Acts 3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
Acts 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things,
        which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began

Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers,
        A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren,
        like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Acts 7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel,
        A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren,
        like unto me; him shall ye hear.

The Spirit is not a God Person but the BREATH of God. The Son whom God MADE TO BE both Lord and Christ is Kurios and not Theos.

Paul defined the TRUTH: Spirit never speaks of a PEOPLE but the mind or mental disposition of a person: Yes you can upset my mental disposition (spirit) but it is not another person living inside of my body.  My mind is a HE be he is ME.

1Corinthians 2:11
For what man knoweth the things of a man,
        save the spirit of man which is in him?
even so the things of God knoweth no man,
        but the Spirit of God.

The Holy Spirit is to God
What our spirit is to us
Neither spirit is another required person.

1Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received,
        not the spirit OF the world,
        but the spirit which is OF God;
         that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak,
        not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth,
        but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:
        for they are foolishness unto him:
        neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the MIND of the Lord, that he may instruct him?
        But we have the MIND of Christ.

MIND and SPIRIT and HEART are often used to mean the same thing. Jesus was the IMAGE of God and the image was NOT THREE people.  Paul has just affired this image?

The SPIRIT OF Christ is the MIND of Christ and it has been delivered in the Prophets and apostles: this left memory is not subject to private interpretation or further expounding: that would mark a false teacher:

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
         the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The Spirit or Will of the lord in Ephesians 5 is the Word of Christ in Colossians 3: God makes itimpossible to accidentially misteach.

Father, Spirit and Son or Father, Mother, Son define ALL pagan triads.
God ordained Jesus of Nazareth to MODEL the ANTITHESIS. 
Jesus claims ALL of the roles of the pagan father, mother and eternally infant son.
John says that if you don't believe in the ONE GOD the Father you are ANTIChrist
Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Colossians 2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith,
        as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

THE WARNING AGAINST PHILOSOPHY AS THE SOURCE OF THE NEO TRINITY.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
         after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Jesus said that doctors of the Law Take Away the Key to Knowledge: that's what they do.

THE CHRISTIAN ANTITHESIS OF THE WORLD'S FAMILY OF GODS.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, [only]
        which is the head of all principality and power:
The neo trinity may intend to diminish Jesus of Nazareth because most of the later day sowing of discord is by men who CLAIM that a spirit is leading them into sowing discord.
John 10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him,
        How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
John 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not:
        the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
        neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
        and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

BECAUSE
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
John 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
John 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works
        have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

Heis means ONE and Pater means AUTHOR: We speak FOR God only when we can say "thus saith the Lord."

Jesus spoke FROM the Father which the Jews thought made him God in fact. There are many gods but only one Lord
John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
John 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me,
        Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

The Jews still wanted to SEE the Father person and the Spirit (mother) person but God gave us an image of ONE Who contained the Breath and Word within Him

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
        and the Father IN me?
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
        but the Father that dwelleth IN me, he doeth the works.

The Breath of God caused Jesus to SPEAK: Jesus does not give room for another person?

John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:
        or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, t
        he works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
        because I go unto my Father.
John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name,
        that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Mac Sandlin:  Three: if we get trinity wrong; we cannot get Christ right We cannot get the atonement, doctrine of baptism, church.

Isn't it psychologial violence to threaten you that if you deny and do not DELIGHT in the TRINITY you cannt be a Christian, you cannot be atoned and you cannot be a Church. You MUST take the mark or you CANNOT participate.

I will send ANOTHER Comfroter I and father will come and make our home

the parting message of Jesus He left no room to suspect that the Holy Spirit as another Comforter would be other than Himself. He died, was resurrected, was glorified or changed into that same kind of resurrection body we will receive.

JESUS DIDN'T PROMISE ANOTHER PERSONAL SPIRIT AS COMFORTER

Condition:
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.  conditional
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father,
        and he shall give you another Comforter, [allos different in form: not heteros]
        that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit OF truth;
        whom the world cannot receive,
        because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
        but ye know him; for he dwelleth WITH you, and shall be IN you.

Another is Allos I. alius, another, one besides, 2. repeated3. allos kai allos, one or two; allo kai allo one thing after another
II. rarely like alloios, of other sort, different, Il.: hence alloios [allos] I. of another sort or kind, differentotherwise2.containing or subject to diversity

Jesus of Nazareth whom God MADE TO BE both Lord in Christ in His resurrected Body would be ANOTHER but not a DIFFERENT Comforter.  God gave Jesus the  post-glorified PROMISE of the Holy Spirit: This means that Jesus received the Commission or evangelistic assignment as The Holy Spirit personified as He had been the WORD of God personified.

We receive "another" body but we will still be we.  This was not another PERSON but notice that Spirit is almost always the Spirit OF a person. We learned in prepositional phrases that the Spirit OF a person cannot be A DIFFERENT person unless he is "Out of his mind."

The Word of God through Jesus IS TRUTH: that is the MIND of God. He does not say that a Spirit PERSON will be IN you. Does Jesus speak of a DIFFERENT Comforter? No: He says I will come to you in the Holy Spirit State.

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless:  "I" will come to you.
John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more;
        but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am IN my Father,
        and ye IN me, and I in you.

This obviously does not mean INSIDE OF: the Dove rested UPON Jesus to prove that He was a SON and not a DAUGHTER.

Condition:
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them,
        he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
         and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:26 But the Comforter [parakletos], which is the Holy Ghost,
        whom the Father will send in my name, [His Name will be Jesus Christ]
        he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,
        whatsoever I have said unto you. [Christ in Spirit form]

WHAT IS TH ENAME OF THE ONE AND ONLY PARAKLETE?

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate [parakletos] with the Father,
        Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only,
        but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep HIS commandments.
1John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar,
        and the truth is not in him.

What is the NAME of the Holy Spirit Comforter? The Holy Spirit? No: His NAME is Jesus Christ the Righteous.
The SPIRIT OF Prophecy is the Spirit OF Christ: OF is a preposition.
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ
        which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand
        the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me,
        See thou do it not:
        I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus:
        worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
         and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD;
        My SPIRIT that is upon thee,
        and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
        shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
        nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed,
        saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

SORRY, but that seems to say that future Theologians will NOT be guided beyond the sacred pages.
1John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:
        hereby know we that we are IN him.
1John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk,
        even as he walked.

That is because:
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away,
        and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice,
        because I said, I go unto the Father:
        for my Father is greater than I.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass,
        that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you:
        for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father;
        and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Jesus revealed in spoken or acted parables to HIDE the truth from the "corrumpter" of the word meaning "sell learning at retail" or prostitution.

These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs:
        but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs
,
        but I shall shew you plainly of the Father

THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS THE COMMISION TO JESUS TO BE THE HOLY SPIRIT OR MIND OF GOD FOR THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.

Jesus returned to the Father of all spirits and received His Holy Spirit state as promised.
God elevated Jesus of Nazareth to be the sole king, priests and teacher of HIS heavenly kingdom
operating invisibly in the physical world with the "profession" as The Holy Spirit: the Word of God.
 
Acts 2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
        and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost,
        HE hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Hebrews 3:2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him,
        as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
Hebrews 3:3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses,
        inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

AND CHRIST WILL NEVER LET THEOLOGIANS READ BLACK TEXT ON BROWN PAPER.

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate [parakletos] with the Father,
        Jesus Christ the righteous:
Acts 16:7 and when they were come over against Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia;
        and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not;

Acts 26:16 Jesus: But rise, and stand upon thy feet:
        for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose,
        to make thee a minister and a witness
        both of these things which thou hast seen,
        and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
 
1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men,
the MAN Christ Jesus, [sent as THE Holy Spirit or Mind]

Mac Sandlin:  ALL Christians have APOSTLES CREED.    Like Cliff note, short summary
 
No, a Christian is a Disciple of Christ: he obeyes the direct command to Teach what Christ has taught in the Prophets and Apostles.  He does no do dogma or trying to wrestle little acts of works thinking that he can appease God.  A Church of Christ is a School of Christ: it is commanded to teach that which is written for our learning: Jesus not the Spirit OF Christ wrote the Apostles Creed.  It was doctors of the Law, says Jesus, wsho tajke away the key to knowledge trying to replace the Words of Jesus Christ which ARE the only source of SPIRIT and LIFE.

Sandlin often limits CHRISTIANS to those who belive in the Trinitarian Creeds.  None of these creeds started out trinitarian in the Sandlin sense of THREE PERSONS always existing. To call God a PERSON connected to the IMAGE of God in Jesus of Nazareth may be blasphemy: certainly the need for authority to gain liberty.

The English text used in the Mass of the Roman Rite since 2011 is:

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creatorof heaven and earth,                            [God created by His Word later vested in Jesus born in time]
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,    [God's SON now is His Word says trinitarians]
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,            [A holy spirit PERSON did not have sex with Mary: God speaks, it is done]
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.  [He is not MEDIATOR and COMFORTING SPIRIT]
I believe in the Holy Spirit,                                              [Never called a God person]
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.
There is NO Hint of the H. Leo Boles tritheism or neo trinitarianism.

Mac Sandlin: Biblical Passages Follow a trinitarian pattern: Great Commission, Father, Son and Holy Spiri.  If this was the only passage, that would be enough to justify the trinity.

This is admitted as the ONLY statement of an imagined TRINITY: If God (Theos) gave Lord (Kurios) ALL power and authority on earth, there is NOTHING LEFT for an imagined spirit person.  Yet, Mac Sandlin says that only the SPIRIT works.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Power or Authority is
Exous-ia , , (exesti)
A power, authority to do a thing,
Pŏtestas , ātis (gen., ability, power of doing any thing
1. Esse in potestate alicujus, to be in one's power, under one's control, to be subject to
Mac is wrong: A Holy Spirit Person does not do everything including having to DRIVE Jesus to be tested. Jesus said that HE had been given ALL AUTHORITY on heave and earth: why would anyone say that Jesus DID NOT have all power but He was the agent of A Holy Spirit People?

That does not leaven ANY power for a supposed trinity of Father, Son and Spirit. That POWER is rarely exercised in the "Building Planter Institutes."

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Nōmen 1.  Periphrastically: “invocavit nomen Domini,Vulg. Gen. 13, 4: “omnipotens nomen ejus,ib. Exod. 15, 3: “psallam nomini Domini,ib
2. Delegated power: “in nomine tuo daemones eicimus,Vulg. Matt. 7, 22:

"The nearest approach to a formal announcement of the doctrine of the Trinity which is recorded from Our Lord's lips, or, perhaps we may say, which is to be found in the whole compass of the NT, has been preserved for us, not by John, but by one of the synoptists. It too, however, is only incidentally introduced, and has for its main object something very different from formulating the doctrine of the Trinity. It is embodied in the great commission which the resurrected Lord gave His disciples to be their 'marching orders even unto the end of the world.' (Int Std Bible Ency., p. 3017)

"It does not say, 'In the names [plural] of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost";
nor yet 'In the name of the Father
and in the name of the Son,
and in the name of the Holy Ghost,'
as if we had to deal with three separate Beings. (Int Std Bible Ency., p. 3017)

Father, Son and Spirit are NOT NAMES: God is known as Yahweh. There are many EL'S but only ONE Jehovah.
Genesis 13 [4] to the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first. There Abram called on the name [Nōmen] of Yahweh.
Exodus 15:2 The LORD [Jehovah] is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation:
        he is my God [El], and I will prepare him an habitation;
        my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
Exodus 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD [Jehovah] is his name.
If one has the RELATIONS in a company of Member of the Board, Chief Engineer and VP Engineering, then the NAME of these three relations is Billy Bob Bubba.  If he signs a check in the name of these three relationships then he signs the check Billy Bob Bubba.  That is why Peter and no on in Scripture did anything in the NAME of Father, Son and Spirit.

The ONE PIECE PATTERN which the neo-trinitarians REPUDIATE is:
 
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

WE SPELL THAT CENI including the Prophets by Christ and prophecies fulfilled by  Jesus of Nazareth.

Because the authority of Jesus Christ has no statute of limitations, anyone who now hears "Father" or "Spirit" saying anything which Has not been taught in the prophets and apostles is a FALSE teacher. 2 peter 2

If God made Jesus TO BE both Lord and Christ and Gave HIM all authority, to baptize in the name (singular) was to baptize in the name of Jesus Christ. There was never an exception in the early church
DID MAC AND THE NEO TRINITARIANS UNDERSTAND SOMETHING NO ONE IN EARLY HISTORY UNDERSTOOD?

The Jews: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for (in order to) the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38  

1 Peter 3:21, Walter Scott and the Campbells says that means that WE receive A holy Spirit or A good conscience.

The Samaritans: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Acts 8:16

The Gentiles: And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Acts 10:48 (not lords)

Those baptized after Pentecost: When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 19:5

Apostle Paul: And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 [This is the clear proof that the "pastor" has no authority to pronounce but Paul was to call on the name consistent with Proselyte baptism] And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. Ac.22:8

I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Ac.26:9>

Romans 6: Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Romans 6:3
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4 >

Corinthians: Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Corinthians 1:13

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, [gift of A holy spirit]
        but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus,
        and BY the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

God's Spirit dwells in our spirit when we receive A holy spirit by request at baptism.  God dwells in our HEART by faith and not literally.

Galatians: For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Galatians 3:27

James: Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? James 2:7

Mac Sandlin asserts that unless you worship A Father and A Son (ie Jesus) and A Holy Spirit person (people) then you cannot worship according to his PATTERN: If we do not know WHOM we worship You simply do not know him at all. He notes that the Trinitarian Creed should be recited as a way to worship God.  However, no historical "trinitarian" ever dared to teach that the 'pesona' or 'aspects' in the ONE GOD are three separate God persons: in the words of John Mark Hicks three centers of consciousness each with their own unique talents.

Mac Sandlin: Why important, because worship matters. God cares how we worship.  If you SINCERELY.  School of Worship. If we GET IT WRONG defines WHO we worship.  Only HIM shall ye worship.  You don't know HIM at all. 

The Spirit OF Christ ordained the Qahal, ekklesia, synagogue or Church OF Christ (the Rock) in the wildernes to be
INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God
EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing or self-speak rhetoric.
This was A School of the Word: the Campbells called it A School of Christ.
This is not a neo-pagan worship service.  Jesus said that the KINGDOM of which HE is King (and not a spirit person) DOES NOT COME with observation meaning RELIGIOUS OBSERVATIONS or Worship Services (meaning hard bondage)

Isn't that amazing, God is alwas a HIM or HE and never a THEY or THEM.  Isn't it dangerous to have to pluck out a NEO-trinitarianism by lifting proof texts when the early creed writers simply omitted or dispissed the Spirit OF God as "And we believe in the Holy Spirit." I do too: for the Church the Spirit is Jesus Christ.

Mac Sandlin: Two: so we can have relationship with God: If we follow LIES then we do not have a relationship.
Deceiving you hurts.

Jesus said MY WORDS are SPIRIT and Life: When they heard the BREATH in the upper room they SPOKE. When God breathed into Jesus he spoke the very words of God. When God BREATHED on Peter he SAID.  The Spirit does not SPEAK.

Acts 4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, SAID unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
Acts 4:9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,
        that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified,
        whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
Acts 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
        for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Including SPEAKING that which is written for our learning, Paul said:

Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
        do all in the name of the Lord  [Kurios] Jesus,
        giving thanks to God [Theos] and the Father by him.

Colossians 3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh;
         not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily,
        as to the Lord, and not unto men;

We SPEAK [opposite to Ode] that which is written for our learning
But we sing (opposite to speak) to the Lord and NOT as a performance.


Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise,
        but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;
        but be filled with the Spirit;  [WORD of Christ John 6:63]

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city

Mac Sandlin  If you know know CHIRST we know the Spirit OF God 2 Cor 3. 17 The Lord IS the Spirit, beholding the Glory Lord who IS Spirit.

Mac Sandlin claims that this just to prove the TRINITY by proving that God is ONE God. Not even I flunked math.

2Corinthians 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face,
        that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:

2Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Corinthians 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Corinthians 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
2Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord IS that Spirit
.....and where the Spirit OF the Lord is, there is liberty.

Mac Sandlin says that is NOT the truth: Paul us just SAYING that so that we understand that the TRINITY is really ONE

When the apostles had been WITH Jesus they had been WITH the Spirit (mother to the Jews) to repudiate the almost univerals triad of a father, mother and inferior child.
The "another" or different in respect to be spiritual rather than physical will be I says Jesus.
The same John says that the another COMFORTER will be Jesus Christ the Righteous.
The spirit OF John Doe IS John Doe. The Spirit OF the Lord IS the Lord. The Spirit is the mind or mental disposition. Spirit is never a pople.

From the Wilderness onward the Christ OF God (the Rock) commanded the assembly to Rest, Read and Rehearse the Word
The command was to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.
The WORDS of Christ ARE Spirit and Life (John 6:63)
Therefore, the only way to be regenerated or changed is to GIVE HEED to the Words of Spirit which ARE Spirit.

2Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
        are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit OF the Lord.

When the Apostles finished their MEROS (not melody) Christ's message was PERFECTED. That is God's instrumental means of guaranteeing that people who CLAIN to be guided "beyond the sacred pages" can be marked as false teachers.

1Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
        now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

The unconverted Jew could not READ Black text on Brown paper not could they HEAR the Word when it was READ in the SYNAGOGUE: that one piece pattern for a Church of Christ. Paul says that the spiritual CHANGE takes place by reading and meditating on the WORD of Christ which IS SPIRIT

Paul began this letter with the SAME salutation after each Apostle had or was delivering THEIR PART: They were guided into All truth by Jesus Christ the Spirit Lord.  Thereafter, that part of the message was perfected and the Holy Spirit is never saluted or addressed:

2Corinthians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ
        by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
         unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
2Corinthians 1:2 Grace be to you and peace
        from God [Theos] our Father,
        and from the Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ.
2Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be God,
        even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
        the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; [paraklēseōs]

Paul told Timothy how to hold ekklesia-synagogue as Christ commanded for the wilderness:

1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public]  reading, to exhortation [paraklēsei], to doctrine.

Peter affirms that ONE GOD (Theos) and one Lord (Kurios) and omits even SPEAKING to a Spirit Person:

2Peter 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,
        to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
        through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
        through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Mac Sandlin says that is NOT THE TRUTH: We need A Holy Spirit person (people) to do the work Jesus was apparently not able to accomplish:

2Peter 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
2Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
        whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
        as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
        until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture
        is of any private interpretation. [further expounding]
2Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
        but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Peter said that the Prophets spoke by the Spirit OF Christ and Jesus certified the PROPHETS and that ends the theology:

1Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit OF Christ which was in them did signify,
         when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

God intended to STAKE OUT those who claim that A Spirit is guiding them when they don't need to ever READ the context:

Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
        but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon [EDUCATED BY] the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
        Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Ephesians 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Ephesians 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirt

When we are baptized we REQUEST that God give us A holy spirit or A good conscience, consciousness or a Co-perception so that we can READ the text. We are washed with water INTO the Word or INTO the School of Christ.

Why would the Spirit OF Christ delivering Spirit through His Word to protect against theologians need ANOTHER Comforter or Intercessor: Doesn't that DESPISE The glorified Jesus and isn't that blasphemy?

1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the man Christ Jesus

No man can hear God Who IS Holy or Wholly Spirit but the Son: that is because of the limitations of humans and God ALWAYS uses huans as His Instrumental Means to DISCOUNT those who claim to HEAR or be guided by a spirit which no one can disprove.

Jesus slerves as Paraclete through His Word: if you doubt that then how could a body of flesh die for your sins.

THE PROBLEM IN ALL AGES:
2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

THE SOLUTION TO MARK FOR AVOIDANCE SELF-SPEAKERS OR DOCTORS OF THE LAW:
2Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of,
        knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
        which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:16 [NIV] All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

2Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.  

Mac Sandlin Acts 4:  Ananias and sapphira sold property and Lied to Holy Spirit.  and she Lied to God.  verse 9 Test the Spirit OF the Lord.

The Spirit OF (preposition) God IS the only Spirit which is HOLY.m

I believe that is Acts 5 and I am truly sorry that you can get a Phd and have missed prepositions: That's about all I can remember from grade six or so.  Again, Sandlin says that this is just an accomodation to make certain that understanding the TRINITY (embedded somewhere) we do not lose sight that ALL of the members are in it together.  But TRINITY is Mac Sandlin's assumption.  Therefore, he MUST do "private interpretation" or further expounding to prove that NO: it does not mean what it says in parallelism

Acts  5:1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
Acts 5:2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
Acts 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias,
        why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
Acts 5:4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power?
            why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

Well, did he lie to A Holy Spirit PEOPLE and also lie to A God PEOPLE?
God IS Spirit: lie to GOD and you lie to the SPIRIT.

Acts 5:5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

Acts 5:6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
Acts 5:7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
Acts 5:8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
Acts 5:9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have
        agreed together to tempt the Spirit OF the Lord?  [OF is a preposition]
        behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.


God is Holy or WHOLLY Spirit in nature: Wind is used to describe the inability to hear a Spirit.  Spirit never speaks of a PEOPLE but the Mental Disposition of that person.  Now, if you lie TO God then you upset His MENTAL DISPOSITION.  If you just upset the Spirit person (people) then why would God the Father people get upset.

There are many gods or Elohim but Jehovah is our only MOST HIGH god.  The other elohim are NOT gods but messy beings.

1Corinthians 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is
        but one God [Theos], the Father, OF whom are all things, and we in him;
        and one Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ, BY whom are all things, and we by him.

As Messiah and the Seed of Abraham, Jesus would be a MAN: conceived by the mind of God.
He was declared to be A Son only after His baptism

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God [Theos], hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord [Kurios] and Christ.

Christ the ROCK was God's instrumental means in the Wilderness but God's AGENT is not God.
We disparage Jesus Christ by denying that He had the power to battle Satan as a MAN and win.

Mac Sandlin: Spirit Drove Him out. Sirit of the lord is on me.  Spirit of Christ.  Jesus is following along by the Spirit.  Miracles works by the SPIRIT

Paul said MY spirit is strong but my flesh is weak.  My spirit says "go whack the weeds" but my flesh says, "maybe Monday." Spirit is the Breath of God and the MENTAL DISPOSITIOBN given by God to DRIVE our bodies.  There was not A Holy Spirit PEOPLE dragging Jesus.  Jesus volunteered for the task and while He was human HIS Spirit went out to do battle as a MORTAL MAN to prove, like Job, that Satan can be defeated on the human plane

Mac Sandlin: WHAT Is the nature of Spirit directs Christ and given by Christ. Demonstrates: Yourself throws the crayon  THOUGHT, WILL (distinct) hae ACTION methaphor

Father is will
son is thought
Spirit is actual work

However, all classical trinitarians and the Campbells who were NOT trinitarins defined the ONE GOD just the way Jesus does:

Father is thought
Spirit is the breath
Son articulates Word.

The first scholar to use the TRIAS word said nothing about three God persons.

The word Trinity was first used by Theophilus of Antioch to Autolycus. Trinity meant: God, His Word and His Wisdom (Spirit). It did not mean the doctrine of the Trinity in the modern sense of the word. [Tertullian also used the word]

It seems to have been a man named Theophilus of Antioch who first applied the term trinity to this Biblical concept as early as 181 A.D. But it was the Anathasian Creed, completed some time in the fifth century, which stated it most clearly: "We worship one God in trinity, and trinity in unity, neither confounding the persons, nor separating the substance."

If we are going to meet Mac Sandlin's requirements even to be able to WORSHIP God the Theophilus demands:

You will say, then, to me, "Do you, who see God, explain to me the appearance of God." Hear, O man. The appearance of God is ineffable and indescribable, and cannot be seen by eyes of flesh.

For in glory He is incomprehensible, in greatness unfathomable, in height inconceivable, in power incomparable, in wisdom unrivalled, in goodness inimitable, in kindness unutterable.
For if I say He is... Light, ......... ... I name but ........,,. ........,,....,../. .. His own work;

And he is called God on account of His having placed all things on security afforded by Himself; and on account of any of any foreign means (of) running, and moving, and being active, and nourishing, and foreseeing, and governing, and making all things alive.

But he is Lord, because He rules over the universe;
Father, because he is before all things;
Fashioner and Maker, because He is creator and maker of the universe;
the
Highest, because of His being above all;
and
Almighty, because He Himself rules and embraces all.

God, then, having His own Word internal within His own bowels,
         begat Him, emitting Him
        along with His own wisdom before all things.

He had this
Word as a helper in the things that were created by Him, and by Him He made all things.
He is called "governing principle", because He rules, and is Lord of all things fashioned by Him.
He, then, being Spirit of God, and governing principle, and wisdom, and power of the highest,
came down upon the prophets, and through them spoke of the creation of the world and of all other things. 
(This was the Spirit of Christ, 1 Peter 1:11; Revelation 19:10)
Tertullian an inventor of trias: But, first, I shall discuss His essential nature, and so the nature of His birth will be understood. We have already asserted that

God made the world, and all which it contains,
by His Word, and Reason, and Power.

It is abundantly plain that your philosophers, too,
regard the
Logos-that is,
 
the Word and Reason-
     as the
Creator of the universe.

And we, in like manner, hold that
     the
Word, and Reason, and Power,
.....by which we have said God made all,

have spirit as their proper and essential    
substratum
, in which the Word has in being to give forth utterances,
and reason abides to dispose and arrange,
and power is over all to execute.
We have been taught that

     He
(reason) proceeds forth from God,

and
in that procession He is generated;
so that He is the Son of God,
and is called God from unity of substance with God. For God, too, is a Spirit.

Even when the ray is shot from the sun,.it is still part of the parent mass; the sun will still be in the
          ray, because it is a ray of the sun-
..........there is no division of substance,
          but
merely an extension.

Thus Christ is Spirit OF Spirit, and God OF God, as light OF light is kindled.

The material matrix remains
entire and unimpaired,  though you derive from it any number of shoots possessed of its qualities;

so, too, that which has come forth out of God
is at once God and the Son of God
, and the two are one. In this way also, as He is Spirit of Spirit and God of God,

He is made a second in manner of existence-in position, not in nature; and He did not withdraw from the original source,  but went forth.
This ray of God, then, as it was always foretold in ancient times, descending into a certain virgin, and made flesh in her womb,
..........is in His birth God and man united.
Campbell, Thomas, Trinity The relationship of Word to God was the same as the relationship of a word to a thought. And so this is the most common understanding among the church fathers.

The the word is the SON of the speaker as FATHER then there is no problem trying to sort out how a LITERAL son of god could be equal with the Father or of the same age.

1st. A word is a sign or representative of a thought or an idea
and is the idea in an
audible or visible form.
It is the exact image of that invisible thought 
which is a perfect
secret to all the world until it is expressed.

2d. All men think or form ideas by means of words or images; so that no man can think without words or symbols of some sort.

3d. Hence it follows that the word and the idea which it represents, are co-etaneous, or of the same age or antiquity..It is true the word may not be uttered or born 
   for years or ages after the idea exists,
...but still the word is just as old as the idea.

4th. The idea and the word are nevertheless distinct from each other, though the relation between them is the nearest known on earth.
........An idea cannot exist without a word
        nor a word without an idea.

5th. He that is acquainted with the word,
is acquainted with the
idea
        for the idea is
wholly in the word.

By putting together the above remarks on the term word, we have a full view of what John intended to communicate.
   
As a word is an exact image of an idea,
   
so is "The Word" an exact image of the invisible God.

As a word cannot exist without an idea, nor an idea without a word,
   so
God never was without "The Word," 
   nor "The Word" without God;

or as a word is of equal age, or co-etaneous with its idea, so "The Word" and God are co-eternal.

And as an idea does not create its word nor a word its idea; so God did not create "The Word," nor the "Word" God.

Mac Sandlin says that ALL of the work is done by a holy spirit people; EVEN forcing Jesus to submit to temption.  However, John 1 says:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
When God BREATHS the breath is not the same as the thought but the Breath is NOT another people.
When God's Breath stricks something its INVISIBLE, INAUDIBLE power is Articulated into WORDS.

Tertullian Against Praxeas (c. 213)

For God is rational, and Reason was first in Him; and so all things were from Himself.
This Reason is His own Thought (or Consciousness) which the Greeks call logos,
        by which term we also designate Word or Discourse

        and therefore it is now usual with our people, owing to the mere simple interpretation of the term,
            to say that the Word was in the beginning with God;
            although it would be more suitable to regard Reason as the more ancient;
            because God had not Word from the beginning, but He had Reason even before the beginning;
            because also Word itself consists of Reason,
            which it thus proves to have been the prior existence as being its own substance.

Not that this distinction is of any practical moment.
        For although God had not yet sent out His Word,
        He still had Him within Himself,
                 both in company with and
                 included within His very Reason,
        as He silently planned and arranged within Himself
        everything which He was afterwards about to utter through His Word.

Now, whilst He was thus planning and arranging with His own Reason,
        He was actually causing that to become Word which He was dealing with in the way of Word or Discourse 

The Fulness of the Godhead dwelled in Jesus of Nazareth FULLY.  God had the right to make Himself known and govern through a man just like the rest of us but one who validated His role by being obedient and SPEAKING only what God BREATHED on Him without metron including meter.

This is THE meaning of The Christ of God:

1 Cor. 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
    Christ
        the power of God, and
        the wisdom of God.

1 Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye IN Christ Jesus,
        who of God is made unto us
        wisdom, and
        righteousness, and
        sanctification, and
        redemption:

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the
        spirit of wisdom and
        [spirit of] revelation in the
        [spirit of] knowledge of him: Ep.1:17

Are these all "persons"?  No. Are they personae, forms or aspects of God? Yes!  Lady Sophia or Wisdom claimed:

Behold, the [1] Lord [2] God will come with strong [3] hand,
        and HIS
arm shall rule for him: behold, HIS reward is with him,
        and
HIS work before HIM. Isa 40:10

With whom took HE counsel, and who instructed HM, and taught HIM in the path of judgment,
     and
taught HIM knowledge, and shewed to HIM the way of understanding? Isa 40:14
