Arianism Explained by an Arian

--[ 44 MIN READ]

This essay written as an apologetic for modern day Arianism. Its not a refutation of other beliefs, nor is it a rebut to objections. But a simple explanation of the Godhead as expressed in scripture from Genesis to maps.


Arianism is very simple to understand. Its the doctrine of MEN who make things complicated. Most truths are simple, the hard part is helping them UNLEARN decades of lies.

Generally, Arianism is known for an explanation of the Godhead. It derives its name from Arius who was a 4th century Christian presbyter at Alexander. He argued the sola-scriptura points of the relationship between God the Father and the Son of God who became Jesus Christ, and rejected the idea of a third person “Holy Spirit”.

In Arianism (including modern and early church), the Son of God is seen as distinct from God the Father. While divine, was begotten, the first and greatest of all that comes forth from the Father. Therefore, according to this view, there was a time when Jesus did not exist, and he is not eternal in the same way as God the Father.

About a third of the original arguments of Arius were dropped in the first decades after the Council of Nicaean in 325 (The Nicaean Creed is a direct refutation of Arianism). Arianism has been refined over the centuries. But the core beliefs of Arius have stood the test of time. Arians are Christians and not Catholic or her daughter religions. If you lived in Europe and not a member of the Holy Roman Empire, then you were probably an Arian. The Baptized Arian Christians were the Visigoths, Vandals, Sueves, Burgundians and Ostrogoths, Franks, Anglos, Saxons, Norse, Celts, and those who established barbarian-ruled states in Europe, and many other independents. Also, from Egypt to Syria.

Almost nothing is known about Arius because his corpus of literature was destroyed and the proponents of Arianism were murdered, even people in possession of his personal letters were executed. There are three fragmented documents, but historians argue if this was written by Arius, plus there is nothing of substance in those writings. All we really know about the man is what his ENEMIES have said. The Catholic Church say that Arianism was and is the most dangerous foe against their religion in their history. Because Arianism exposes the foolishness of Trinity-ism.

What scripture teaches about the Godhead and Christology is the modern term “Arianism”, its a branch of “Sola-Scriptura”. So, Arianism isn’t a sect or religion, its a doctrine that uses scripture to defend the ontology of the Almighty.

The history of Arianism isn’t as significant as the concept. Arianism in modern times is simply a term used to denote any Non-Trinitarian beliefs, such as Unitarian and Binitarian. Just as the modern day Lutheran Church bears little resemblance to Martin Luther’s 95th Thesis, yet they are still called “Lutherans”; or as the early trinitarian views are hardly recognizable to modern Catholicism, yet its still called “trinitarianism”. Nobody cares about what Arius first thought, we care about what Arianism teaches. Arius was only the first one to define the Godhead in writing.

All Christians during the time of Christ and all the way back to the Garden of Eden held to the biblical realities of the Godhead that would later be called “Arianism”, though biblical historians refer to the early church as “binitarianism” . The reason for this is because Christians are Sola-Scriptura, meaning we believe the scripture or Word of God is our final authority, not men in robes. We believe the Bible is ultimately authored from the mind of God, thus is inerrant and inspired. And we are confident that God Himself understands the Godhead since before time began and is fully capable of speaking for Himself as written in the Bible.

The Pharisees were losing power because tens of thousands of Judeans were converting to Christianity. They then convinced the Roman Emperors that these Christians were the cause of all their problems. So beginning with Nero, the killings began and continued for about 250 years. And ending with Constantine and the Edict of Malan.

Constantine who oddly enough was a baptized Arian Christian was baptized by Eusebius of Nicomedia. But 20 years later began killing Christians that would not convert to Nicaean Christianity. His terror was light compared to the institution of the Roman Catholic Church around 600 AD with Pope Gregory the Great. On a side note, he said house cats bore the spirit of Satan and ordered all cats killed. This caused the over run of rats that might have been responsible for the Black Death or bubonic plague.

The Arians never believed in forced conversions; they don’t murder innocent people. They view other beliefs as being either true or untrue, either congruent with scripture or nay. We think EVERYBODY wants to know the truth, why would anyone knowingly convince themselves of a lie? The Bible said, “Let EVERY MAN be a liar, but God ONLY be the truth”. That means me, you, your guru, your preacher man, and the Pope are nothing but liars. We cannot speak TRUTH unless we first begin with God.

Constantine’s son was a Baptized Arian Christian and for a short time there was peace, and he promoted Arianism throughout the Roman providence. However, after his death, the killing began again and Catholicism was again the only religion allowed, upon pains of death.

Overtime, the Catholics have murdered and tortured hundreds of millions of Christians. Christians don’t burn people at the stake, Catholics do. Christians don’t bury people alive, Catholics do. Christians don’t draw and quarter people, Catholics do. Christians don’t feed people to hungry lions, Catholics do. The Catholics did things to Christians that Bolshevik Rabbis wet dreams are made of. You can get online to view the countless torture chambers and execution sites dotted across Europe where the most heinous crimes were committed against Gods Elect.

What was their crime? They owned bibles, they said the Pope has to answer to God, they said the Pope is not God on earth, they said the Pope is not infallible, they did not accept the false doctrine of the “trinity”, they kept the biblical Sabbath.

Our history is hard to find, most websites speak of the true Church in a negative way. Our great leaders and thinkers were murdered. Our books burned. Little remains of our faith filled legacy, but that is ok, because the Spirit is alive and well and planet earth is littered with those ready to die for the Gospels sake.

Recently Pope Francis apologized to the Arian Waldensian Christians for murdering them. The Waldensians did not accept.

What did Arius believe according to Arians

Three things God cannot do:

God cannot commit logical fallacies

(He cannot make a married Batchelor).

Booger-eater: Can God make a rock so heavy that not even He can lift it?
Faithwalker: God cannot commit logical fallacies, like the fallacy of contradiction (LNC).
Booger-eater: AH HA! Something God can’t do eh?
Faithwalker: Ok then, YES. God can make a rock so heavy that not even He can lift it… then He can lift it.
Booger-eater: Hey no fair, thats illogical!

For God is not the author of confusion.
~1 Corinthians 14:33

God cannot violate His own nature:

God is not following a moral code because He is good. He is not following a moral code that makes Him good.
God IS the moral good. Its WHO He is. Its His very nature.
God is the absolute pentacle of morals, there is no moral above Him, if there were, then THAT would be God.

Jesus must follow the Law of God. The “Goodness” standard is set by the Father alone.

Now at that time, one came to Him [Jesus] and said, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”
And He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except one—God. But if you desire to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
~Matthew 19:16-17

The Torah (10 Commandments &etc.) cannot save you… The Law only shows us our SIN, our moral failure. We make ourselves a criminal against the Kingdom of God when we break His Law. Objective moral values are rooted in God’s nature, and that nature expresses itself toward us in the form of divine commandments, which constitute our moral duties.

God cannot lie

God cannot even lie accidently, therefore God can NEVER be wrong.

So that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to lay hold on the hope that has been set before us.
~ Hebrews 6:18

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
~ Numbers 23:19

The ontology of the Father (what substance is His body?):

This begins a discussion about the “being-ness” of God. The substance of His body including other groups/categories of beings of that existence. This is meant in a very quantifiable sense and at the most fundamental level.

The word “God” is not His name, it is a translation of the word “Elohim”, it describes the class or “family” of His being. The name of the Father is “YHWH” (The Tetragrammaton), the Father is in the Elohim family. The preexistent Son of God is also an Elohim. Jesus the man is not an Elohim. The resurrected Jesus is an Elohim.

If you have a biological son, then your son came from you. But you are not physically your son, nor is your son the exact same person as you.
The word “God” can refer to either the Father or the Son. But they are not the same being, they are entirely separate persons.

The Father has a corporal body.

The Father is not a shapeless, formless, nebulas cloud floating around in outer space. He is not a forcefield or wispy consciousness filling the universe.

Man is created in the image of God –in the IMAGE OF GOD. The word translated “Image” is “Tselem”, it means shape, shadow, form. In other words, man LOOKS LIKE God.

And God said, Let us make man according to our image and likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the flying creatures of heaven, and over the cattle and all the earth, and over all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 
~Genesis 1:26

Man looks like the Father and the Son looks like the Father. They have arms, legs, hands, face, hair, ears, eyes, nose and many other attributes known to man.

“And they heard the sound of the LORD God WALKING in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.”
-Genesis 3:8
(How can God walk without legs; not fly, float, hover, suspend… but WALK )

“Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.”
-Exodus 33:11
(God has a face.)

“When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the FINGER of God.”
-Exodus 31:18
(God has fingers)

“Then the Lord said, ‘There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.’”
-Exodus 33:19–23
(God has a HAND and BACKSIDE)

“And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.”
-Ezekiel 1:26-28
(God has the appearance of a man)

“As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.”
-Daniel 7:9
(God has CLOTHES and SITS on a throne.)

“His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.” -Revelations 1:14-15
(God has a head, hair, eyes, feet, and voice)

It is no wonder that some mistake the Ancient of Days for Jesus. But after all, it should come as no surprise that these descriptions are similar.
For brevity I only listed a few out of hundreds if not thousands of these kinds of attributes. But not one of them says God is a gaseous blob floating around in outer space.

The Father is Spirit and Water

We have no “Spirit-o-meter”. We grope as men in the dark, the Almighty reveals what He wants to reveal about Himself, and what He wants to reveal about Himself is found in Scripture, Math, Logic, Nature, and Science. All TRUTH points to God. There is no “truth” outside of God.

For now we see through a glass darkly, but then [after the resurrection] we shall see face to face; now I know in part, but then [after the resurrection] I shall know exactly as I have been known.
~1 Corinthians 13:12

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
~ John 4:24

The Elohim have bodies consisting of spirit and water, Angels are made of spirit and water, man has spirit inside of his clay body. Demons are spirits WITHOUT a body. Fallen Angels have a spirit and water body.

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless anyone has been born of WATER AND OF SPIRIT, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
~ John 3:5

We don’t fully understand the “water”, but it flows in the New Jerusalem

But one of the soldiers had pierced His [Jesus] side with a spear, and immediately blood and water had come out.
~John 19:34

The one who believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of LIVING WATER.”
~ John 7:38

Then he showed me a pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
And in the middle of the street, and on this side and that side of the river, was the tree of life, producing twelve manner of fruits, each month yielding its fruit; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
~Revelation 22:1-2

One other comment: Spirit beings are not confined to our 3 dimensions of time, space, and matter. They are hyperdimensional. This proof comes by math and science. We KNOW there are other dimensions mathematically, there are plenty of videos that can explain that proof. But more on this when we discuss the ontology of the Son, when Jesus appeared to His disciples after the assentation.

God the Father and the Son of God are not Omnipresent

The Father is not EVERYWHERE at once. Yet, there is no place where God cant go.
…and the universe can’t keep Him contained.

But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heavens and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this house which I have built?
~1 Kings 8:27

The God of the Old Testament is either the one who became Jesus or an Angel acting as an agent of God. Scripture is remarkably silent concerning God the Father.

No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
~John 1:18

And the Father Himself, Who sent Me, has borne witness of Me. You have neither heard His voice nor seen His form at any time.
~John 5:37

But if you believed Moses, you would have believed Me; for he wrote about Me.
~John 5:46

This implies that the Father must have remained in Heaven since Creation. The only God man has dwelt with was Jesus, before he became flesh.

Jesus states the Father is in Heaven. Not “Our Father, who art everywhere…” (Matthew 5:16, 45, 48; 6:1, 9; 10:32-33)

Not even a Trinitarian or other high-ranking mystic can word craft an argument that Jesus was omnipresent while he was on earth. So now let’s examine if he was omnipresent before he became flesh.

And the LORD said, “Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous,
I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which has come to Me. And if not, I will know.”
~Genesis 18:20-21

If the Son of God was omnipresent, then He would say something like “I will go down to where I already am to see what I’m already seeing…” Of course, that makes no sense.

This follows the same logic as above.

And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower [of Babel] which the children of men had built.
~Genesis 11:5

How can Adam hide from the presence of God if God is omnipresent?

And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. Then Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
~Genesis 3:8

God is looking down at something to confirm his view.

The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.
~Psalm 14:2

God dwells in/with those who believe in Christ and practice the things of Christ. On the contrary, he is not with those who practice unrighteousness.

No one has seen God at any time. Yet, if we love one another, God dwells in us, and His own love is perfected in us.
By this standard we know that we are dwelling in Him, and He is dwelling in us: because of His own Spirit, which He has given to us.
And we have seen for ourselves and bear witness that the Father sent the Son as the Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God.
And we have known and have believed the love that God has toward us. God is love, and the one who dwells in love is dwelling in God, and God in him.
~1 John 4:12-16

Upon the second Return of Christ, Jesus will come from Heaven to meet the saints in the air. At this time, would you still believe that God is everywhere at that particular event?

Because the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first;
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds for the meeting with the Lord in the air; and so shall we always be with the Lord.
~1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

There’s plenty of more passages which shows how Jesus is not everywhere at the same time, but I will limit this post to these, for time-sake. Nonetheless, this should be good evidence to prove my argument. I would also like to show you how God, in a sense, can be omnipresent.

A good analogy I can give for God being everywhere is comparing his system to that of a surveillance system. The surveillance system has many cameras that capture every angle of space and reports its data through a hierarchy of command. The angels of God can be considered the cameras and are reporting every action of every individual, even every word that individual has ever spoken, it is then written down in a book that will be read on the Day of Judgement. (Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment). But God himself, is not physically everywhere at the same time.

Woe to those who go deep to hide their purpose from the LORD! And their works are in the dark, and they say, “Who sees us? And who knows us?”
~Isaiah 29:15

Isaiah is asking facetiously. The answer is, of course, there is NOWHERE where one could hide from the Lord.

For there is nothing covered that shall not be uncovered, nor hidden that shall not be known.
Therefore, whatever you have spoken in the darkness shall be heard in the light; and what you have spoken in the ear in closed rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops.
~Luke 12:3

Luke warns men, they can’t hide from the Almighty. We live in a tiny terrarium and are constantly being observed, the Lord is about to do something marvelous. He is extremely interested in man. All humans have angels observing us at all times, even while we sleep. BUT ALSO, we have demons and fallen angels observing us at all times, that are patiently waiting to see us stumble, so that can accuse us to the Father that they might lay a legal claim to our mortal souls.

When someone says, “I need you to be my eyes and ears” they don’t mean literally, they mean watch and hear, then report back the things you saw and heard.

For whoever has despised the day of small things will rejoice and will see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.” These seven [Spirits] are the eyes of Yahweh which are ranging throughout the whole earth.
~Zechariah 4:10

The seven Spirits of God were recognized as the seven eyes and horns on the Lamb. So these angels were considered to be eyes that were sent out by the Lord.

Then I saw, and behold, before the throne and the four living creatures, and before the elders, was standing a Lamb as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God that are sent into all the earth;
~Revelation 5:6

These are those same Seven Spirits of the Lord:

Were not the Ethiopians and the Libyans a huge army with many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the LORD, He delivered them into your hand,
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro in all the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore, from now on you shall have wars.”
~2 Chronicles 16:8-9

The “eyes of the Lord” [Angels/Spirits] are in every place.
In every place, the eyes of Yahweh keep watch over the evil and the good.
~Proverbs 15:3

The angels can interact with you first-hand.

Let brotherly love be present among you continually.
Do not forget to show hospitality; for by this some have unknowingly welcomed angels as guests.
~Hebrews 13:1-2

The Father does not know everything at once (Omniscient)

There is no Truth or Knowledge that exists outside of the Almighty. There is nothing hidden from God and nothing that He cannot know. God’s mind is absolutely undivided.

The Most High God is utterly and thoroughly sovereign over all kingdoms and principalities; His judgment cannot be separated from either His mercy or His wrath. God is absolutely faithful. God is whole and complete. Under every circumstance, He is never confused about what to do. He is always headed in the same direction, which is to complete His purpose.

It is absolutely impossible for Him to do anything that is not wise and moral. It is He who tells us how to live and how to be like Him. What God is has awesome ramifications for us because we are so different, and He wants us to be like Him, to be one with Him, to be whole, to be complete, to be undivided in mind like Him.

WITH THAT SAID, there are problems here because becoming this way requires a measure of cooperation from us. Compared to God, our mind is all over the place, and thus we are so easily distracted from our focus. God must “prove” us and search out our hearts, because of our “free will” He doesn’t know with certainty what people will do or choose.

God does know the end from the beginning the same way, you know what will happen when you push over the first domino in a row of standing dominos. You know they will all fall down, but you don’t know exactly how each domino will fall.

Moses changed the mind of God, Moses prevailed upon God to not kill the Children of Israel as He intended.

they have quickly gone out of the way which thou commandedst; they have made for themselves a calf, and worshipped it, and sacrificed to it, and said, These are thy gods, O Israel, who brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And now let me alone, and I will be very angry with them and consume them, and I will make thee a great nation.
And Moses prayed before the Lord God, and said, Wherefore, O Lord, art thou very angry with thy people, whom thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt with great strength, and with thy high arm?
Take heed lest at any time the Egyptians speak, saying, With evil intent he brought them out to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from off the earth; cease from thy wrathful anger, and be merciful to the sin of thy people,
remembering Abraam and Isaac and Jacob thy servants, to whom thou hast sworn by thyself, and hast spoken to them, saying, I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of heaven for multitude, and all this land which thou spokest of to give to them, so that they shall possess it for ever.
And the Lord was prevailed upon to preserve his people.
~Exodus 32:8-14

Moses commands Israel to remove their fancy clothes and jewelry while God MAKES A DESCISION on their punishment.

And Yahweh said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘You are a stiff-necked people; if one moment I were to go up among you, I would destroy you. And now take down your ornaments from on you, and I will decide what I will do to you.”
~Exodus 33:5

The logical assumption is that God might ACCIDENTLY step in their uncleanness and no longer abide within the camp.

“And there shall be for you a designated place outside the camp; and you shall go there to relieve yourself,
and a digging tool shall be included in addition to your other utensils for yourself; and then when you relieve yourself outside the camp you shall dig with it, and then you shall turn, and you shall cover your excrement.
For Yahweh your God is walking about in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to hand your enemies over to you before you, and so let your camp be holy, so that He [YHWH] shall not see in it anything indecent, and he shall turn away from going with you.
~Deuteronomy 23:12-14

When the Angle of the Lord said, “NOW I know you fear the Lord”, that means the Lord did not know beforehand.

And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son.
And the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham! Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”
And he said, “Do not stretch out your hand against the boy; do not do anything to him. For now I know that you are one who fears God, since you have not withheld your son, your only child, from me.”
~Genesis 22:10-12

But even as we were approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, we speak in this manner: as those who please not men, but God, Who proves our hearts.
~1 Thessalonians 2:4

(The word “proves” means; tried, tested, and has demonstrated what its made of. If it has integrity and courage or not. God is the one that does the proving.)

God puts our faith under a live load to see if we have integrity.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
~James 1:3

But He will never test us beyond what we can handle

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not permit you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation, He will also make the way out, so as for you to be able to bear it.
~1Corinthians 10:13

This phrase “may be found” means that your faith will be test, but may it prove to have integrity to stand up on that day of judgement. Because God doesn’t know what manner of person you will become when He knits you in your mothers womb.

so that the genuineness of your faith, which is more precious than gold that perishes, though being tested with fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
~1Peter 1:7

The relationship between the Father and the Son

The Father and Son have Parent/Child relationship.

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
~ Matthew 23:9

I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God and your God.
~ John 20:17

Jesus was not a Pharisee

Was Jesus a Pharisee?

Jesus was educated directly under the guidance of the Father

Christ Was Taught Directly by God the Father

The Father and Son belong to the Elohim family

“God” in ancient Aramaic is “Elohim”, it means “mighty one”, its not His name, it’s a descriptor that describes a family of beings. For example, a father fish and a mother fish produce a baby fish, those beings belong to the “fish” family. Birds produce birds after their seed of their own kind, and all birds belong to the “bird” family. Dogs belong to the dog family. Humans belong to the human family. And Elohim belong to the Elohim family. Even nature should teach you that simple fact.

God the Father is an Elohim
The Son of God is an Elohim

There are only 2 members right now in the Elohim family. They don’t share the same body, they are not really one being with 2 different hats (Father hat or sometimes wear the Son hat). Humans are special creation; we have the potential to become literal off spring of the Father and become members of the Elohim family. Someday there will so many of us that we can’t be counted for number. HallaluYAH!

But now Christ has been raised from the dead; He has become the first fruit of those who have fallen asleep.
~1 Corinthians 15:20

If Jesus is the FIRST fruit, it only stands to reason that there would be a second fruit, then a third, then millions upon millions. “First Fruit” is a torah law, to give the first of the fruit when the harvest becomes ripe… and brother, the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.

The Preexistence of the Son

The Son existed BEFORE time, space, and matter.

In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter).
~Genesis 1:1

All things were created THROUGH the Word (who is the Son) by the will and direction of the Father.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be which has come to be.
~John 1:1-3

I have no power to do anything of Myself; but as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father, Who sent Me.
~John 5:1

Jesus was an Elohim before His virgin birth.

And now, Father, glorify Me with Your own self, with the glory that I had with You before the world existed.
~John 17:5

The Son is begotten by the Father

The word “Father” is a being that produces off spring from His own body. The word “son” is the product from the loins of the seed giver. Even nature should teach you this. There is no exception (except metaphorically), all of nature operates this way. Surely the Creator of heaven and earth understands this, why would He use these words if that’s not what He means?

A son is Begotten from a father, just as a human boy MUST have a human father.

Jesus is the Son because He has a Father. And the way in which the Son relates to the Father is by begetting, or to put it in the reverse order, the Father generates the Son.

The Son obeys His Father.

For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me.
~ John 6:38

Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.
~ Hebrews 5:8

But I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here.
~ John 14:31

And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”
~John 8:29

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
~ Romans 8:14

For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.
~ John 12:49

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
~John 3:16-17
(who gave? “He” the Father is the giver)

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
~ Exodus 20:12
(Jesus never committed a single sin)

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
~1 John 3:1
(Jesus is the Fathers son, and so are we. Jesus is our BROTHER)

The Son is subservient to His Father.

You have heard Me say to you that I am going away, and that I will come to you again. If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced that I said, ‘I am going to the Father’ because My Father is greater than I.
~John 14:28

All authority was GIVEN to the Son by the Father.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
~Matthew 28:18

The Father is ETERNAL (without beginning or end)
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And He shall throw the enemy out from before you and shall say, ‘Destroy!’
~Deuteronomy 33:27

The Son has a beginning and an end.
I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Blessed are those who keep His commandments, that they may have the right to eat of the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
~Revelation 22:13-14

The Father cannot be tempted:
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 
~James 1:13
The Son was tempted
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. 
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 4:14-15

The Son has a different volition than the Father

Luk 22:42 Saying, “Father, if You are willing to take away this cup from Me—; nevertheless, not My will, but Your will be done.”

The Son has no doctrine.

Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His Who sent Me.
If anyone desires to do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it is from God, or whether I speak from My own self.

~John 7:16-17

The Son divests His divine Elohim status to become Jesus the man

“for God to elect to be graciously present
among us in the person of Jesus Christ, divine humility of an unfathomable order
is involved.”
~ “Ars Disputandi” by Ivor J. Davidson

Since before the world began, the Father begat the Son. The Son was an Elohim, and has many appearances in the Old Testament. When the Son was born of a virgin, He stepped down from His Elohim status and became FULLY human. Not half God and half man. The Son became human in every way, the same as us. Jesus did have a divine purpose, and was PERSONALLY taught by the Father. Jesus had a myriad of angels looking after Him, so He was a very special human. Jesus was and is HOLY, that is, set-apart by the Father for a divine purpose.

After His death on the cross, He went to Sheol (heart of the earth) and preached to the souls waiting for the resurrection. After 3 days His physical body was resurrected, and on Wave Sheaf Offering Day, Jesus ascended up to the 3rd Heaven to present His body to be accepted. The Father did accept Him, and Jesus was reinstated to His Elohim status.

Since Jesus had NO SIN, then He didn’t need a High Priest to make atonement for Him, and death could not keep Him because of His sinlessness. He is now the administrator of the office of High Priest under the Melki-Zadok order. Where He officiates in the Temple in the New Jerusalem.

The scepter (Kingship) has also passed on to Jesus, He is second in command in all of heaven and earth. He is the King/Priest of all even angels, except for the Father who remains sovereign over Jesus.

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
~Phillipians 2:5-11

And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.
~Luke 2:52

The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My words shall never pass away.
But concerning that day and the hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
~Mark 13:31-32

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and not even one thing that was created came into being without Him.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not comprehend it.
There was a man sent by God, whose name was John.
He came for a witness, that he might testify concerning the light, so that through him all might believe.
He was not the light, but came that he might testify concerning the light.
The true light was that which enlightens everyone who comes into the world.
He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, but the world did not know Him.
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him;
But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become the children of God, even to those who believe in His name;
Who were not begotten by bloodlines, nor by the will of the flesh, nor by the will of man, but by the will of God.
And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us (and we ourselves beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten with the Father), full of grace and truth.
John testified concerning Him, and proclaimed, saying, “This was He of Whom I said, ‘He Who comes after me has precedence over me because He was before me.’ “
And of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
For the law was given through Moses, and the grace and the truth came through Jesus Christ.
No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
~John 1:1-18

For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men—the Man Christ Jesus,
1 Titus 2:5

I know there are those who will try to turn these verses into an antinomian hyper-grace philosophy. But they are important to the Kenotic discussion, so, I post them.

Now then, I say, for as long a time as the heir is a child, he is no different from a servant, although he be lord of all;
But he is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed beforehand by the father.
In the same way, when we were children, we were held in bondage under the elements of the world.
But when the time for the fulfillment came, God sent forth His own Son, born of a woman, born under law,
In order that He might redeem those who are under law, so that we might receive the gift of sonship from God.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba, Father.”
So then, you are no longer a servant, but a son. And if a son, you are also an heir of God through Christ.
~Galatians 4:7

(Breaking the spell of antinomianism in this passage: Notice Jesus is coming to redeem only those who are “under” or “guided” by Law. Make no mistake, Jesus is coming to DESTROY the Lawless)

Jesus experienced His human existence as a human not as an Elohim. He grew in wisdom and in stature (Luke 2:52); He was hungry (Matt. 4:2) and thirsty (John 19:28), He grew weary (John 4:6) and slept (Matt. 8:24), and He bled (John 19:34) and died (John 19:30).

The Body of Christ

The body of Christ is very significant. At Passover in the upper room, Jesus took unleavened bread, broke it and gave it to his disciples and said, “this is my body…”. We know the bread isn’t literally His body, so what did He mean?

The holy spirit is the power, will, and nature of Almighty God. The bible is the holy spirit in written form. Jesus is the holy spirit in human form. The “bread” is another way of saying the ‘Word of God’, or the Great Spirit of God. Its His will, power, and nature in HUMAN FLESH. He is the Word made flesh.

… that he might teach thee that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God shall man live.
~Deuteronomy 8:3

The leaven in bread on Passover represents BAD DOCTRINE -ego, pride, being puffed up. It’s the doctrine of men, traditions, laws of men that nullify the Law of God. This concept of discerning between the teachings of men and the written Word of God is so important that God commanded His people to observe a seven day period, every year, where we remove all the leaven from our homes. Its called the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Now when His disciples came to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
And Jesus said to them, “Watch out, and be on guard against the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
Then they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we did not take bread.”

How is it that you do not understand that I was not speaking of bread when I told you to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?”
Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
~Matthew 16:5-7; 11-12

Jesus is the pure “Word” (will, power, nature) because he walked out the Torah PERFECTLY. Jesus NEVER sinned, not even once, not even just a little bit.

When we ‘eat His flesh’ we are consuming and digesting the Word of God (His will, power, nature) that nourishes our mind and spirit to give us wisdom to walk as Jesus walked… without sin.

So, the Church is also called “The Body of Christ”. The Church are those who walk righteously, in the great spirit of God (in His will, nature, power). Those called out who will be in the resurrection unto life.

However, you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God is indeed dwelling within you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
But if Christ be within you, the body is indeed dead because of sin; however, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Now if the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead is dwelling within you, He Who raised Christ from the dead will also quicken your mortal bodies because of His Spirit that dwells within you.
~Romans 8:9-11

Jesus is the true manna (bread) that comes from heaven.
Our fathers ate manna in the wilderness, as it is written: ‘He gave them bread to eat that came down from heaven.’ “
Then Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven; but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is He Who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
Therefore, they said to Him, “Lord, give this bread to us always.”
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; the one who comes to Me shall never hunger; and the one who believes in Me shall never thirst at any time.
But as I said to you, you also have seen Me, yet you do not believe.
All whom the Father gives Me shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.
For I did not come down from heaven to do My own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me.
And this is the will of the Father Who sent Me: that of all whom He has given Me, I should not lose any, but should raise them up in the last day.
And this is the will of Him Who sent Me: that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in Him, may have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Then the Jews were complaining against Him, because He said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”
And they were saying, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? Why then does He say, ‘I came down from heaven’? “
For this reason, Jesus answered them and said, “Do not be complaining among one another.
No one can come to Me unless the Father, Who sent Me, draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore, everyone who has heard from the Father, and has learned, comes to Me.
No one has seen the Father except He Who is from God; He has seen the Father.
Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes in Me has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert, but they died.
This is the bread which comes down from heaven so that anyone may eat of it and not die.
I am the living bread, which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread that I will give is even My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
Because of this, the Jews were arguing with one another, saying, “How is He able to give us His flesh to eat?”
Therefore, Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up in the last day;
For My flesh is truly food, and My blood is truly drink.
The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood is dwelling in Me, and I in him.
As the living Father has sent Me, and I live by the Father; so also the one who eats Me shall live by Me.
This is the bread which came down from heaven; not as your fathers ate manna, and died. The one who eats this bread shall live forever.”
~John 6:31-58

The Sons of God are also the Body of Christ, more on that later.

What About The Physical Body Of Christ?

After the resurrection and before Jesus had been born again with a new Spirit and Water body, He was still in His human body. But He was able to transcend the 3rd dimension into higher dimensions, meaning He could pass through solid walls and locked doors.

Afterwards, as evening was drawing near that day, the first day of the weeks, and the doors were shut where the disciples had assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be to you.”
~John 20:19

Now as they were telling these things, Jesus Himself stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be to you.”
But they were terrified and filled with fear, thinking that they beheld a spirit apparition.
Then He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts come up in your hearts?
See My hands and My feet, that it is I. Touch Me and see for yourselves; for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see Me having.”
And after saying this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
But while they were still disbelieving and wondering for joy, He said to them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”
Then they gave Him part of a broiled fish and a piece of honeycomb.
And He took these and ate in their presence.
And He said to them, “These are the words that I spoke to you when I was yet with you, that all the things which were written concerning Me in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
And said to them, “According as it is written, it was necessary for the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day.
And in His name, repentance and remission of sins should be preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
For you are witnesses of these things.
And behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you; but remain in the city of Jerusalem until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
Then He led them out as far as Bethany; and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
And it came to pass that as He was blessing them, He was separated from them and was carried up into heaven.
And after worshiping Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen
~Luke 24:36-53

Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people?
And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.
~Isaiah 53:1-12

His Great Spirit

What is the Holy Spirit? It is the conduit of the Fathers mind, nature, and power. Is that not simple? The Holy Spirit is power that issues from the Father, and anyone who operates in the Spirit.

The Great Spirit produces fruit and is a byproduct when we are obedient to the Law of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 
Meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 
But those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 
If we live by the Spirit, we should also be walking by the Spirit. 
~Galatians 5:22-25

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 
And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 
~Philippians 4:6-7

The “Holy Spirit” is not a person, not a being. The bible never referrers to the holy spirit as a “He” or a “She”, it is always called an “it”. It has no mind of its own, it has no body, it is simply the avenue of His power and nature.

What are the functions of His set-apart spirit?
• It aids in our conversion
• It helps us to overcome
• It is in us as much as the Word
• It comforts us
• It is with us
• It is the downpayment on the New Covenant
• Its how God gives gifts like wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord
• It’s the power of resurrection
• It’s the power to obey
• It’s the power to search mens’ hearts
• It’s the contact man has with God
• It enables perception
• It is given to those who obey
• It imparts discernment
• It imparts understanding and wisdom
• It is poured out on all flesh
• It begets

… just to name a few functions of the spirit of God

Humans have 3 parts, a carnal flesh and spirit. The flesh wars against our spirit, they don’t understand each other. But the spirit part of man is the only thing that can communicate with the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is like a radio wave, and our spirit is like a radio receiver. The spirit in man is either dead or alive, if alive, then it is walking in the spirit of God. We also have what the bible calls a “psyche”, the Greek word is the same English word “Psyche”, it is the cognitive part of our mind that makes our decisions. Every day we can make a decision to either follow God by sowing to the spirit, or we can sow to the flesh. But whatever kind of seed we sow in our garden of life, will be the kind of fruit our gardens will yield.

Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your presence?
If I go up into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in the grave, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the farthest parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me shall be night;”
Even the darkness does not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; as is the darkness, so is the light to You,
For You have possessed my reins; You have knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am awesomely and wonderfully made; Your works are marvelous and my soul knows it very well.
~Psalm 139:7-14

Blaspheme of the holy spirit

Because of this, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men except the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; that shall not be forgiven to men.
And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age nor in the coming age.
~Matthew 12:32

People get angry with God especially when tragedy befalls them. They will blame God for their troubles in life. But that is not blaspheme of the holy spirit. Other times people have secret sin, usually sexual in nature, and they love their sin, so they deny God and suppress the knowledge of Him and can even speak out against Him, but this is not blaspheme of the holy spirit.

This is the unpardonable sin. It says if a Christian commits blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, there is no forgiveness for it. What does He mean? He is pronouncing the terrible fate of those who KNOWINGLY choose the wrong side. If we blaspheme the Spirit of God, which is God’s power and the agency by which He works, we have determined that God has no power. This is, of course, a lie, because, as He explains in the Parable of the Strong Man, God is the most powerful Being.

But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This Man does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, prince of the demons.”
But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.
And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then shall his kingdom stand?
And if I by Beelzebub cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? On account of this, they shall be your judges.
But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
Or how is anyone able to enter into the house of a strong man and plunder his goods, if he does not first bind the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
The one who is not with Me is against Me, and the one who does not gather with Me scatters.
~Matthew 12:24-30

If we choose to continue with KNOWINGLY PRACTICING SIN, we will grieve His spirit. If we grieve His spirit, it will leave. We will cut ourselves off from all life, love, knowledge. He will turn us over to our reprobate mind. When we sin we are calling the Father a liar, and the just payment for that action is DEATH.

Therefore, let each one put away lies and speak the truth with his neighbor because we are members of one another.
When you become angry, do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger;
Neither give place to the devil.
Let the one who stole, steal no more; rather, let him labor with his hands, working at what is good, so that he may impart something to the one who has need.
Do not let any corrupt communication come out of your mouth, but that which is good and needful for edification that it may give grace to those who hear.
And do not vex the Holy Spirit of God by which you have been sealed for the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness, and indignation, and wrath, and clamor, and evil speaking be removed from you, together with all malice;
And be kind and tenderhearted toward one another, forgiving one another, even as God has also in Christ forgiven you.
~Ephesians 4:25-32

Indeed, the wrath of God is revealed from heaven upon all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest among them, for God has manifested it to them;
For the invisible things of Him are perceived from the creation of the world, being understood by the things that were made—both His eternal power and Godhead— so that they are without excuse;
Because when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but they became vain in their own reasonings, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
While professing themselves to be the wise ones, they became fools
And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed creatures, and creeping things.
For this cause, God also abandoned them to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to disgrace their own bodies between themselves,
Who exchanged the truth of God for the lie; and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the One Who is Creator, Who is blessed into the ages. Amen.
For this cause, God abandoned them to disgraceful passions; for even their women changed the natural use of sex into that which is contrary to nature;
And in the same manner also the men, having left the natural use of sex with the woman, were inflamed in their lustful passions toward one another— men with men shamelessly committing lewd acts, and receiving back within themselves a fitting penalty for their error.
And in exact proportion as they did not consent to have God in their knowledge, God abandoned them to a reprobate mind, to practice those things that are immoral;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, guile, evil dispositions; whisperers,
Slanderers, God-haters, insolent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things and practices; disobedient to parents,
Void of understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable and unmerciful;
Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, not only practice these things themselves, but also approve of those who commit them.
~Romans 1:18-32

Blaspheme of the Holy Spirit explained by Michael Heiser

Sons of God

The Godhead very much includes the Sons of God:
When you die, you will become a spirit without a body. You will rest in a place in the heart of the earth called Sheol until you are resurrected at the Second Coming. On Judgment Day we will receive either the Second Death or be Born Again and enter into life and given a new spirit and water body.

By which He also went and preached to the spirits in prison,
Which disobeyed in a past time, when once the long-suffering of God was waiting in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few— that is, eight souls—were saved through water;
1 Peter 3:19

But for us, the commonwealth of God exists in the heavens, from where also we are waiting for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;
Who will transform our vile bodies, that they may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the inner working of His own power, whereby He is able to subdue all things to Himself.
~Philippians 3:21

When we are Born Again (the day our salvation comes, AFTER the gavel comes down and we are accepted), we will be Children of the Living God with new bodies. We will be His off-spring, we will have the same body as our brother Jesus the Son, and the Father because we will be Born into the Family of Elohim. We will be Elohim, and there will be so many Elohim that we can’t be counted for number!

Nevertheless, someone will say, “How are the dead raised? And with what body do they come?”
Fool! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.
And what you sow is not the body that shall be; rather, it is bare grain—it may be of wheat, or one of the other grains;
And God gives it a body according to His will, and to each of the seeds its own body.
And there are heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies; but the glory of the heavenly is different, and the glory of the earthly is different.
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.
It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body;
Accordingly, it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul; the last Adam became an ever-living Spirit.”
However, the spiritual was not first, but the natural—then the spiritual.
The first man is of the earth—made of dust. The second Man is the Lord from heaven.
As is the one made of dust, so also are all those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly one, so also are all those who are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the one made of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly One.
~Corinthians 15:40-49

In Conclusion

Most Christians will struggle with the concepts presented. Not because the arguments are illogical or not scripturally supported. But because they have never heard it before. They will have a strong bias toward what the have believed their entire lives.

So, I ask you carefully consider it. We are seeking the TRUE TRUTH after all. We determine the TRUTH by the Word of God, not a preacher, not what our grandmothers believed, not some guru, or flagrant men in Robes.

The Bible is our final authority, and the source of Doctrine. Learn to discern between the written word, and ideas of men.

Often times when people search for God, the try to find the “correct religion”. They like to stand on their soapbox and beat on their chest proclaiming their sterling personalities. ALL Christian religions claim to get their belief systems from scripture (except Catholics who openly follow the Pope), therefore go DIRECTLY TO THE SOURCE! Biblical Christianity is not a religion, it’s a way of life… but if you have to have a label then consider the words of James.

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their afflictions, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
James 1:27

Arianism isn’t a religion, it’s the simple truth.
