The Only Begotten Son Proceedeth Forth From His Father

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.

Not three thrones but only two thrones are stated in Revelation: See 3:21; 21:22; 22:1-5

In conclusion, I leave you with the following Scriptures to help you determine who you’ll serve and worship. Will it be the One true God and His only Begotten Son or Baal, a false god?

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 𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭- god], follow him.”

𝐍𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐒𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭:and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, 𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐭𝐡 𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐞:and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the 𝐒𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐒𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐬, crying, Abba, Father. (Galatians 4:6)

[9] But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the 𝐒𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭, he is none of his. [10] And 𝐢𝐟 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (Romans 8:9-10)

Let's determine with spiritual discernment, how many BEINGS make up the Godhead.

"The Holy Spirit comes to the world as Christ's representative. It not only speaks the truth, but It is THE TRUTH—the faithful and 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐞 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬. It is the great Searcher of hearts and is acquainted with the characters of all." (CT 68.1). emphasis added to show Jesus is the Spirit of Truth.

Who is it that speaks Truth? It is Christ,

the faithful and 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐞 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬!

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ. HOW?

The faithful and 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐞 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 is Christ(Rev.3:14)

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the 𝐒𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall 𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐲 of me: (John 15:26)

𝐉𝐨𝐡𝐧 𝟐𝟎:𝟑𝟏

𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐰𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐧, 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐞 𝐦𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐆𝐨𝐝; 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐞 𝐦𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞.
