It has been on my heart for some time now, to present a study on the Godhead. This might in itself seem a little odd, since we as message believers basically consider the Godhead to be old hat.
Everybody understands the Message concept of monotheism,
which is also the basic tenet of the Hebrew faith.
A little insight into the teaching, which we will refer to as the "Two Lords doctrine" may seem a little strange to those who are not familiar with it.
Basically the belief is rooted in the theory, that
Jesus was "spiritually birthed" by God the Father, somewhere
back in the eons of the ages.
They believe that Jesus was the first creation by God, but that he was not created as a God. The next event as they teach, is that this Son which was in the form of a light, then created all things in heaven and in earth.
It gets even more convoluted as the theory goes
on. To keep the doctrine from creating two Gods, the Lord Jesus is placed
on a lower tier than God.
It is also taught that the body of Jesus is up
in heaven, sitting on the Father's throne.
The most contorted of the tenets of this teaching, is the belief that Jesus the Son is stripped of the kingdom by Jesus the Father. This is done as soon as all things are subdued to Jesus the Son by the father. At this time Jesus the Son is quickly removed from being the Supreme authority of His newly acquired kingdom.
Again, does this sound strange? In order to make
Scripture fit the theory, the "two Lords" teachers are saying
that the father is also presently along with the Son, called Christ Jesus.
The Scripture verse they use for this is here:
The whole theory is basically the trinity doctrine
minus one. Much of it is based on mechanically trying to place Scripture
without spiritual Revelation.
If it was only taught and believed by some fringe followers of this Message, it would not warrant the time to refute. The problem is that it was invented and being promoted by a prominent teacher in this Message.
As in any search to better understand Scripture,
it is best to look as far back in the record as possible.
To me a good descriptive term is "SUPER SEED
ATTRIBUTES", in which is contained the potential of all that is to
be, or could be.
In the unfolding of HIS plan, the first order of
creation was in the realms of the Spirit. That would be Angels, with varying
degrees of power and responsibility, in order to establish a heavenly
Kingdom, in which the SELF EXISTANT ONE would be the HEAD, the GODHEAD.
If I might divert to a rather important truth and
its application for later consideration. God never changes in HIS PURPOSE
Let's look into this area slightly, as this is
the pattern that was transferred from the first rebellion in heaven, to
the earth in EDEN.
Without Spiritual Revelation, this Scripture verse concerning the creation of Lucifer, would be confusing. How could GOD create something perfect and be found later, to have iniquity in it?
As was the nature of God then, now and forever
HE gave the power of choice.
Now let's delve into the GODHEAD a little further.
At this place in our study I would like to address
the first point brought up in our introduction of the "two Lords"
theory. Their teaching is, that Jesus the Son, was created as a separate
person before the foundation of the world, then as a created being, in
turn created the heavens and the earth.
The question is then asked; Who was God talking
to when HE made this statement?
The first setting of Scripture we will refer to is, the time when God came to visit with Abraham with two angels.
Here we see GOD consulting with Angelic beings.
Our second reference is in
It is evident that God shares His plan with those
He chooses to in heaven, as is also evident in His relationship to His
Elect church. It is part and parcel of His Divine Nature.
I would like to continue expounding on the thought
of the "ONE" who created the heavens and the earth.

The 1st chapter of Genesis is quite explicit in
who created the heavens and earth. In its simple and beautiful form it
declares "In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth".
If indeed as Scripture declares, that all things
were created by God ALONE, and the "two Lords theory" attributes
creation to Jesus the Son, then He must also be GOD or A GOD. If it is
the former, it is the same as we believe, The Jehovah of the Old Testament
is Jesus of the new. If the latter, they have TWO GODS...trinity minus
We understand by the REVELATION given by this Message,
that the man Christ Jesus, the Lamb slain, was indeed before the foundation
of the world, but IN the MIND of GOD.
We now have a basic understanding, of various aspects
of the nature of the ONE true GOD and HIS desire to fulfill the attribute
nature of His Being.
He then created the potential to fulfill every aspect of His Divine plan, by the creation of the living and nonliving objects for His Glory.
He alone is the GODHEAD, though expressing His
nature and character in manifold manifestations, yet singular in being.
In this study we want to begin covering the Message
Revelation of the GODHEAD.
This original choice by Eve to rebel against God's
Word, then Adam taking her back, brought into existance, an element called
The hybreeding of the blood (egg) of Eve with that of the Serpent's seed, brought also with it the need for blood to atone.
The short term substitute of animal blood was not
sufficient to take away sin.
The conclusive necessity was for the blood of God, the only sinless one that could possibly atone, for fallen mankind.
How could this be? God, being a Spirit did not have blood, and certainly could not die.
Satan and his demons probably had a rock and roll festival after the fall. He had by Adam's default, became heir of the fallen earth. He knew it would take the blood of God to purchase back the earth and restore all things.
Satan was blind to the wisdom and power of God and HIS predestined plan and the power of His Godhead. It is also the same with satan's children.
The full truth of the Godhead is hidden from all who are in polytheism, Ditheism or "two Lords" and perhaps most who are so called "oneness".
The conclusion is obvious since the true and full revelation of the Godhead came after the opening of the Seals. The denominational trinitarians, nor oneness so called, never came to the revealed Word of the hour, God's only chosen place of worship. The trinitarian concept is simple idolatry and the Jesus only belief is incomplete.
The opening of the Seven Seals revealed the Godhead in its totality. The truth of Godhead is the revealing of the MIND of GOD in purpose and redemption, from its conception to completion.
This Message Godhead Revelation IS NOT the denominational
oneness belief since they rejected the Messenger and the Message. It most
certainly is not the multi god teachings of trinitarianism.
Now let's return to the MYSTERY of the Godhead.
For the trinitarians the complexity of this requirement, as compared to their teaching is insurmountibally staggering.
Let's look at this.
If this were so in any form, two of them placed one of them in a non equal position of becoming flesh and dying. So much for co-equal
Secondly but equally absurd is that one is father, one is son and the other is a Holy spirit.
The reasonable assumption arises, that a son has to be after a father. So much for co-eternal.
The third one the Holy Spirit? Which of the three were not holy spirits before time?
It's no wonder the world looks at religious concepts
as ignorant superstition. The trinitarian belief makes Alice in wonderland
Many Heathen religions have through time portrayed their dieties in human form.
Even as far back as the time of Nimrod, the illegetimate son of his widow made the claim that the child was the son of a god .
The Egyptians and Babylonians after that time, portrayed some of their gods with human traits and forms.
From Greece through pagan Rome the portrayal remained.
Satan mimicked the ultimate manifestation of redemption and even succeeded in receiving worship by becoming a god in man.
But in due time, with every world and religious
system exactly in the right time and season, There came forth the ULTIMATE
MANIFESTATION of GOD. The ONE and ONLY TRUE and LIVING GOD made HIMSELF
a BODY, by creating in the womb of a virgin the BLOOD SEED of the ETERNAL

The physical body of Jesus Christ, had a specific purpose in the plan of redemption. It provided the human kinsmen relationship to man, (kinsman redeemer) and the channel for the Holy Spirit Father, to taste death for every man.
The word, PURPOSE, to me, takes on a special application
here. It is most difficult for us as humans to perceive the full meaning
of this word in this particular application, as being the sole reason
for Jesus whole life on earth.
Jesus body was created to be sacrificed. Anything
that is sacrificed is not kept, but totally consumed in its present state.
Thus the lamb of God designation. The man, was consumed in his entirety,
with it's human nature, and substance of flesh that was subject to death.

When this purpose was completed, the Theophany
body swept up to the tomb and picked up the physical body , changing the
elements to its Theophany form.
This is the type of body the Elect will have. A body like unto HIS Glorious body. This is that WORD BODY that is being formed inside each individual of the Bride, by receiving the Spirit Quickened Message of the Hour.
In this changed body Jesus ministered for 40 days to up to 500 people. Then He ascended on High and went back to Spirit, the Holy Spirit. He, GOD ALONE then returned on the day of Pentecost to walk among the Seven Candlesticks through the 7 Church Ages.
The body that Jesus Christ died in is no longer
a seperate entity from God, but in fact went back to BEING GOD.
