Doctrine

  Trinity
  The doctrine of the trinity holds that God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit are all one and the same individuals. All nature teaches contrary to this view. The Father is from everlasting to everlasting. He is without beginning or end. He is the life giver, the source of all life. He is the author of the entire plan of salvation for the world of mankind.

Our Lord Jesus, on the other hand is called the Son of God, one who received life from the Father, the only begotten of the Father. As a reward for his faithfulness, our Lord was raised to glory honor and immortality. Jesus did not have immortality prior to his resurrection.

Nature teaches us that a son is one that receives life from his father, one that may grow up and become a father, but will never be his own life giver, his own father. Jesus as the Son of God, received life from his Father, and in the Father’s great plan for the salvation for Adam and his race, Jesus Christ will become the world's everlasting Father, but Christ will never become his own life giver. That honor belongs to his Father.

Nature also teaches us that, for a man to become a father, he must have a bride. The Christian church is to become the bride of Christ. Christ with his bride will give life to Adam and his family and in this way, Christ will become their everlasting father.

The Holy Spirit is the power and influence of the Father. Note what the Scriptures say regarding this power and influence.

"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." and thingss happened. Gen. 1:2

Joseph interperted the dream of Pharaoh, and Pharaoh said unto his servants, "Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?" Gen 41:38 Pharaoh appointed Joseph over all his house and affairs, because that power and influence of God was manifest in Joseph.

Moses speaks of this power and influence saying, “And he (the LORD) hath filled him (Bezaleel, the son of Uri) with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;" Exo 35:31 It is hard to find a text of Scripture that better defines the power and influence of God that this one. It is that same power that is described in 2Timothy 1:7 where we read, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

The Father gives life, the son receives life from the Father. The Father can never become the son, but the son can become “a” father, once he has taken a bride.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1John 3:2

In fulfilment of our Lord's prayer, the bride of Christ, the Christian Church will be one with Christ, in the same way that Christ and the Father are one.

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
John 17:20-21
