The Only Begotten Son of God
The only begotten Son of God:
Jesus, as the Son of God, is not a created being, but the Creator of all things. God, the Father, was the Creator working through His Son, Jesus (Ephesians 3:9). And, after all things were created God continued to work through His Son (Acts 2:22).
The Bible states that Jesus is equal with His
Father because He has appointed Him all things: His name, authority, judgment, His life
(Philippians 2:9; Matthew 28:18; John 5:22, 26, 27, 30, 43; Hebrews 1:3); even His eternal life (1John 5:11). Only God, the Father, is immortal (1Timothy 1:17; 6:16).
Jesus is the express image of His Father, for God made Him equal to Himself (Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:6; Hebrews 1:3). For Jesus came out from God and was sent to this world (John 7:29; 8:42; 16:27, 28; Proverbs 8:24, 25;). This is what is meant by the "only begotten Son" of God. Jesus truly was the firstborn of all creation before anything ever was created (Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:6).
Psalm 2:7 ...'I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.'
Jesus is truly the Son of God. The Son is by and through whom are all things (Colossians 1:16; John 1:3; Hebrews 1:2); The Son created all creatures by the Father’s power (Ephesians 3:9); The Son has the Father’s original life (original, unborrowed, underived) (John 5:26); The Son has the fullness of His Father [Godhead] dwelling in Him (Colossians 2:9; how is the Father [Godhead] in the Son? by the Spirit of the Father being without measure in the Son: John 3:34). Christ is Not created, but “the only begotten Son of God” (John 1:18; 3:16, 18; 1 John 4:9); ever subject to the authority of His Father, the only true God (1 Corinthians 15:27-28; John 17:3).
Our “Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father” (2 John 1:3) is not the second trinity god! If God the Supreme Being who “sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1 John 4:10) is a trinity and His Son is, therefore, the exact age as the Supreme Being or He is absolutely co-equal with the Supreme Being, then it implies that His Son Jesus did not truly die. The Supreme Being is described as the one “Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see” (1Tim. 6:15-16). If such applied to Jesus then He did not truly die at the cross, but was very much alive while foisting a delusion on humanity, thus making all our professions about the death and resurrection of Christ mere vanity and illusion. That is how absurd a belief in the trinity is! If you accept the Bible as it reads, you will not deny the Fatherhood of God and Sonship of Jesus. Those who deny the literal sonship and fatherhood of God and Jesus, is a liar and antichrist, and cannot have eternal life. "He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son”..."Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not Father." (1 John 2:22, 23), and the trinity is an antichrist doctrine!
The Bible is clear that Christ inherited all things from Jehovah, His Father. “Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands” (John 13:3), All things: His Father’s life (John 5:26; 6:57), His Father’s name (Heb 1:4; Phil 2:9; Ex 23:21-23), His Father’s glory (John 17:22), His Father’s throne (Rev 3:21), and His Father’s power of authority (John 10:18; Matt 28:18). The benevolence of God “whose name alone is JEHOVAH” (Ps 83:18) in putting His [Jehovah’s] name in His Son (Ex 23:21) and giving Him All things is used by the trinitarians to deny Christ’s Sonship and God’s Fatherhood.
The Son of God was “possessed by the LORD in the beginning of His way, before His works of old” (Prov 8:22); “whose going forth has been from everlasting” "from the days of eternity" (Micah 5:2); “before Abraham was” (John 8:58); “before the mountains and hills” (Prov 8:25); “before the world began” (2 Tim 1:9); "before the world was" (John 17:5); He “proceeded forth” (John 8:42); "the only begotten Son...hath declared [Him]" (John 1:18); “was brought forth” (Prov 8:24-25); “came out from God” and "came out from" the Father (John 16:27; 17:8).
The Son of God is “the image of the invisible God” Col 1:15; “the express image of His person” Heb 1:3; "the first begotten" Heb 1:6; "the fruit of [His] body" Micah 6:7; "Son of the most high God" Mark 5:7; “the beginning [Head] of the creation of God” Rev 3:14; “the First-born of every creature” Col 1:15; And we are "the church of the firstborn" Heb 12:23; for by Him “were all things created” Col 1:16.
The Son of God is “by whom [God] made the worlds” Heb 1:2; "God, who created all things by Jesus Christ” Eph 3:9; "For by the word of the LORD were the heavens made" Psalm 33:6; for He was “before all things, and by Him all things consist” Col 1:17; who “upholds all things by the Word of His [God’s] power” Heb 1:3 "by inheritance" Heb 1:4; Who is “in the bosom of the Father” John 1:18; for “he that has seen [Him] has seen the Father” John 14:9; "being in the form of God but not grasping to be equal with God" Phil 2:6; "[His] God and [our] God" John 20:17; “in Whom dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” Col 2:9; He is “the mighty God” Ps 50:1; Isa 9:6; He was "anointed by [His] God above [His] fellows" Heb 1:9; so that “all the angels of God worship Him” Heb 1:6; “the counsel of peace shall be between them both” Zech 6:13; keeping “the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” Eph 4:3; "[he] and [his] Father are one" John 10:30; "[He is] in the Father and the Father in [him]" John 14:10,11.
To the Son of God, “God, even the Father... has put all things under his [Christ's] feet” 1 Cor15:27; "Whom [God] has appointed heir of all things” Heb 1:2; except "He which did put all things under him" 1 Cor 15:27; because “the head of Christ is God” 1 Cor 11:3; "all power is given unto [him] in heaven and in earth" Matt 28:18; The Father has given him "power over all flesh” John 17:2; "All things are delivered unto [him] of [his] Father" Matt 11:27; "that in all things he might have the preeminence" Col 1:18; Therefore "the LORD GOD" said "Mine Angel shall go before you...My name is in him" Exod 23:17-23; “they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” 1 Cor 10:4; “the Angel of His presence saved them...and He bare them, and carried them all the days of old” Isa 63:9.
1 Kings 18:21 NASB
Elijah came near to all the people and said, “ How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal [false god], follow him.”
My dear friend, I invite you now, to abandon the false doctrine of the trinity. Accept the truth about God and His Son. Give your life to them forever and determine that from now on you will serve them and walk with them until the day when we shall meet them face to face.
There is no greater blessing in all of Christian experience. I myself have found out that fellowship with God and His Son is the highest joy that I can have in this life. Can you imagine? God, the Almighty One is my personal Friend!! When I talk with Him, I know He is in charge of my life. I forget all my problems because I know that He takes care of them all.
This is what eternal life means, my friend. To know and to have personal fellowship with God (who is the Father) and with His Son, Jesus Christ. This is what Jesus Himself said:
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:3)
but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. (John 20:31)
