From One Believer To Another

From One Believer to Another

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

As you read, I pray you’ll not see me as being angry at anyone. Firm at times with some, I’ll agree with that. I know that no matter what a person has gone through, things they’ve said or done, or still doing for that matter, there’s a 50/50 chance of my having sought forgiveness for doing the exact same thing at one time or another. I know the battle is not against flesh and blood my friend.

Throughout this blog you will find me quoting things heard on the radio. You’ll not find the names of those who said these things in the posts. I do document their names, the date, time, and radio station call sign on my copy of the original document. I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.

If you should continue reading my friend, you will find the Anthanasian Creed being exposed for what it is, a false doctrine. The word of God having the final say. My trusting in He who knows hears and sees all things, the God of the [Bible].

Setting The Stage For What Should Follow

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Nothing has caused more people to stray from [Biblical] truths, to false teachings, than the Anthanasian Creeds having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved.

If you’re teaching a person cannot be saved unless they believe “the Son is God,” you should have a copy of the Anthanasian Creed within reach at all times.  Taking it one step further you shouldn’t have a [Bible] within reach.  The words “the Son is God” aren’t in the [Bible].

The same can be said for the doctrine of the “Trinity,” no need to have a [Bible] nearby for it either.  It’s a byproduct of the Anthanasian Creed and just like it, can only be traced back to 325-AD.

Whatever “evidence” one claims to have supporting the Anthanasian Creed, it’ll be directly linked to those bent on keeping its [false] method of salvation up and running.

If they’re [really] interested in getting it right the first time, followers of the Anthanasian Creed won’t stray from the writings of those not mentioned in the [Bible].  All they’ll have to offer are the writings of those surfacing after the Anthanasian Creed became doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD.   

Raising the [Bible] high, for all to see, and saying “This is [the] inspired word of God,” sets the stage for what [should] follow.  Sticking with what’s actually written in the [Bible], is the safest thing one could do.  It is unimaginable why anyone would want to stray from “[the] inspired word of God,” absolute truths. 

If you’re teaching the Anthanasian Creeds believe it [or else], false, method of salvation, it’s time for you to establish it as the foundation of your system of belief.

Raise a (printed) copy of the Anthanasian Creed high, for all to see, and say “This single piece of paper is a copy of the Anthanasian Creed (actually a 3 by 5 inch card would be sufficient enough).  Prior to [it] surfacing in 325-AD, having to believe [the Son is God] to be saved wasn’t necessary.”  This sets the stage for what [should] follow. 

The [Bible] doesn’t support the Anthanasian Creeds, “the Son is God.”

God bless.

Trusting It All Day Long

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Becoming a born again believer in Messiah Yeshua, has absolutely nothing to do with believing the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God”.  Taking it one step further, the doctrine of the “Trinity” is superglued to the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God.”  Having to believe either of them has absolutely nothing to do with becoming a born again believer in Messiah Yeshua.  If you’re teaching that one has to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved, as a [Biblical] truth, I wouldn’t do that if I were you.  

Followers of the Anthanasian Creed will tell you that the [Bible] supports it.  It won’t be a problem to prove they’re actually leaning on the teachings of those not mentioned in the [Bible], for all the answers. 

The Anthanasian Creeds “method” of salvation surfaced in 325-AD and, there’s absolutely no reason to believe it’s working in conjunction with what Messiah Yeshua accomplished in the first century.  The events leading up to Jesus’ death burial and resurrection are well documented and we shouldn’t stray from them.  Why anyone would even consider such a thing is, unimaginable.

But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’” Luke 4:4 (NKJV)

And Jesus answered and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’” Luke 4:8 (NKJV)

Have you ever heard the phrase, “It is written”?  When I hear it, I immediately think of “Jesus”.  His encounter with Satan in the wilderness (Luke 4:4 and 8).  When I [quote] Jesus’ teachings, I know it’ll be safe to say “It is written” along with it.  For me “It is written” refers to the inspired word of God.  One thing is for sure, I’ll never say “It is written” to anything linked to the Anthanasian Creed.  “Hearsay at best” maybe, but never “It is written”.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a load voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46 (NKJV)

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)

“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.” Revelation 3:12 (NKJV)

After reading Matthew 27:46, John 20:17 and Revelation 3:12, would you say there are seven good reasons to believe Messiah Yeshua isn’t the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God”?  I would.  It’ll be safe to say Yeshua called the all-knowing God of the [Bible] “My God,” His God, seven times in them, “It is written”. 

To make the words “My God” mean anything but Jesus’ God and the all-knowing God of the [Bible] are one and the same can only happen in the world of imagination.

How about the Anthanasian Creeds [false] method of salvation, what did it take to keep it up and running for the past sixteen hundred plus years?  It took forcing people to believe what can’t be found in the inspired word of God, “the Son is God”.  Those they trusted to teach the truth gave them no other alternative.

Ask anyone from the local “church” that teaches the doctrine of the “Trinity” if becoming a “member” is determined by whether or not an individual has to believe “the Son is God” [or else] to be saved.  You’ll know whether or not they’re trusting the doctrines of men or “It is written” the inspired word of God, if you do. 

If they tell you a person must believe the doctrine of the “Trinity,” you’ll know they’re trusting the doctrines of men.  They wouldn’t be teaching the Anthanasian Creeds believe it or else “method” of salvation in the first place, if they trusted “It is written” Jesus’ teachings to begin with.  If it has anything to do with the Anthanasian Creed my friends, it’ll be hearsay at best.

I don’t know about you but I trust “It is written”.  “Hearsay at best” is after the fact and has to be put to the test.  Looking to see if it’s trustworthy, is the [Biblically] correct thing to do.  Knowing “It is written” endures forever, I’ll trust it all day long.

It’s [Biblically] impossible for the Son of God to be the Anthanasian Creeds, “the Son is God.”

God bless.

"This is My beloved Son Hear Him"

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

According to the Anthanasian Creed, no one can be saved unless they [first] believe the “the Son is God”.  The person believing such a thing today is trusting [someone] that’s teaching it as well.  If you’re somewhere in that chain of people believing “the Son is God,” I wouldn’t count on finding that “someone” in the [Bible].  They were either present at the time, or lived after, the Anthanasian Creed became the doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD.  Therefore without the Anthanasian Creed “the Son is God,” isn’t.

Having to believe what surfaces after the last entry of the New Testament which occurred near the end of the first century, to be saved, is absurd.  I can say this because I know what Messiah Yeshua accomplished in the first century, pleased the all-knowing God of the [Bible].  If it concerns the salvation of one’s soul my friends, I’d make sure everything agrees with Jesus’ teachings.

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33 (NKJV)

Matthew 10:32-33 is crystal clear, “whoever confesses” Jesus “before men, him” Jesus “will also confess before” Jesus’ “Father who is in heaven”.

“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” Matthew 17:5b, c and d (NKJV)

Whoever understands what God meant when He said this about “My beloved Son” Jesus, “Hear Him,” confesses the [Biblical] Jesus “before men,” not someone’s idea of who Jesus is.

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)
Confessing the [Biblical] Jesus “before men,” pleases the all-knowing God of the [Bible] who happens to be Jesus’ God and, Father (John 20:17).
If the [Biblical] Jesus is Lord and Savior of your life, it had absolutely nothing to do with the Anthanasian Creed.  The Anthanasian Creed is nothing more, less than, a distraction.

God bless.

Want To Know The Truth, Keep Reading The Bible

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,” Ephesians 1:17 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which some things are hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.  2 Peter 3:14-16 (NKJV)

If you knew anything about Peter, you’d know it would have taken a lot for him to say “Our beloved brother Paul”.  Some major change in his life.  For Peter to say anything good about Paul it took being reminded of things heard, witnessing with his own eyes as he walked with Messiah Yeshua, for what had to be three plus years.

If you knew anything about Paul, Peter would have been on his short list of people to meet.  He would not planned to become “beloved brother” friends with Peter.  Needless to say because Peter did say “Our beloved brother Paul,” spending time [with] Yeshua changed their lives. 

When I say “knew anything” about Peter and Paul, I’m taking about knowing what inspired words of God they wrote, or were written about them.  Anything else is hearsay at best.

Prior to the last entry of what’s known to us today as the New Testament which occurred near the end of the first century, Peter and Paul were well aware of the number of prophecies Yeshua fulfilled concerning Yeshua’s first coming.  Therefore knowing [exactly] who Yeshua is, Messiah, Peter and Paul’s writings give every reason to believe it’s true.

The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is also called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.” John 4:25-26 (NKJV)

There’s a very good chance of it being Peter, telling Paul, about Yeshua’s encounter with the woman at the well where Yeshua claimed to be “I who speak to you am He,” “Messiah”.  If it’s not the case, Peter certainly wouldn’t have led Paul to believe otherwise.  It’ll be safe to say Peter was well aware of what took place that day. 

Peter said this about Paul’s writings, “in which some things are hard to understand”.  You’d think Peter had a hard time understanding Paul’s writings, he didn’t.  Peter is obviously speaking of others because he then went on to say, “which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures”.  I have a hard time believing Peter is accusing himself of doing such a thing here.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard a pastor say, “As a child of God, a follower of Jesus Christ, how do we live in this world?”  He was speaking directly to “Christians”.  He then went on to say, “If you want to know God, read the scriptures.”

I agree 100% with “If you want to know God, read the scriptures”.  I know Peter and Paul taught the same thing in the first century.  I’m certainly not going to make any changes to it, in the twenty first century.  “Which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” however creates an interesting situation here.  This pastor is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed and, he teaches a person cannot be [Biblically] saved unless they, above all things, believe what [actually] surfaced in the fourth century. 

In the fourth century, unless a person “faithfully” believes “the Son is God” they “cannot be saved” was introduced to the world.  You’ll find it in what’s known to us today as the Anthanasian Creed which became the doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD as well.

“As a child of God, a follower of Jesus Christ, how do we live in this world?”  I’ll answer that question for myself.  As a child of God, a follower of the [Biblical] Yeshua “Jesus,” I’ll live in this world knowing there are people of this world bent on turning people away from [Biblical] truths.  Exposing the Anthanasian Creed for what it is, of [this] world, is certainly on my short list of things to do.

If you should choose to continue reading, I pray that you’ll recognize that Peter, Paul, the writers of the Hebrew [Scriptures] the “Old Testament” and the New Testament, aren’t “untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” causing you to turn away from [Biblical] truths.

God bless.

If They Could Only See The Truth

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

What you’re about to read is the second, and final e-mail I received from someone I heard on the local “Christian” radio station.  It’s just as I received it, except the blank spaces.  That information was left out intentionally because it could lead to identifying who this individual is, and that’s not my intent.  What is however is to show [why] those believing Jesus is God, isn’t as significant as they may think.


Jim,


I’m afraid this will have to be my final email to you. I hope you find it helpful. I’ve attached two articles. One is from my book, __________. The other is from a course I taught here at ________. Again, my final comment is that if Jesus isn’t fully God then he is not Savior. We need the God-Man to save us. Nothing less will do. Blessings,


Why is the topic of Jesus being God so important today?  Correction, why is the topic of Jesus being God so important to those needing Jesus to be God today?


“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16 (NKJV)

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  1 John 4:15 (NKJV)

According to the [Scriptures] “Whoever believes in Him,” “Whoever confesses that” He “is the Son of God,” Jesus, “God abides in him, and he in God”.  John 3:16 and 1 John 4:15 are crystal clear, the eternal destiny of one’s soul isn’t determined by whether or not they believe Jesus is God.

How about believing the [Biblical] Yeshua “Jesus” [is] the Son of God, will that take the one believing it straight to the kingdom of God?  Of course it will.  So why the topic of Jesus being God important to those teaching Jesus is God?


Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV) 

Knowing it’s the [Biblically] correct thing to do, “Repent, and believe in the gospel,” I’m at peace with sharing “good news” the gospel of Jesus Christ with you.


And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Matthew 28:18 (NKJV)

Jesus said “All authority has been given to Me”.  Would you say Jesus is “fully God” as He admits to “all authority” having been given to Him?  If you need Jesus to be God then He is to you, but it certainly doesn’t make it so.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32 (NKJV)

Jesus confessed to not knowing all things, “Nor the Son”.  Would you say Jesus is “fully God,” not knowing all things?

Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.” John 7:16 (NKJV)

Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.” John 8:28 (NKJV)

“He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” John 14:24 (NKJV)

“You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.” John 14:28 (NKJV)

“I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.” John 17:6 (NKJV)

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)

Jesus said “I am ascending to My Father” and “to My God”.  Would you say Jesus is “fully God” as He calls who has to be the all-knowing God of the [Bible] “My God,” His God?  If you need Him to be God He is to you, but it certainly doesn’t make it so.

God help the person not seeing themselves as being one with God, by and through, Messiah Yeshua’s shed blood on a cross, let alone Jesus not telling the truth.


“Again, my final comment is that if Jesus isn’t fully God then he is not Savior. We need the God-Man to save us. Nothing less will do. Blessings,”


“God-Man” and “the Son is God” have one thing in common, they were introduced to the public in 325-AD.  It’s no coincidence the doctrine of the “Trinity” and the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” go hand in hand, it’s a byproduct of the Anthanasian Creed.

Ask anyone that’s teaching the doctrine of the “Trinity,” do Messiah Yeshua’s teachings [really] support it?  If they don’t tell you “the Son is God” can only be traced back to 325-AD, they’re doing what they’ve been doing all along, misleading you.  Hearsay at best is all they have supporting it.  There is absolutely no [Biblical] evidence of anyone having to believe the Anthanasian Creed for anything! 


So why is the topic of Jesus being God so important to those needing Jesus to be God today?  I wouldn’t look any further than the Anthanasian Creed for the answer to that question my friends.  With the last sentence of it saying a person “cannot be saved” unless they “faithfully” believe “the Son is God,” it’s obvious why. 


For the past sixteen hundred plus years people have been [forced] to believe the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” and the [Biblical] Yeshua are one and the same, when obviously Yeshua’s teachings say differently.  They fear they cannot be saved otherwise.  If they could only see the truth.


Until Messiah Yeshua comes again, God bless.

"According to the Scriptures"

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,” 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. 1 Corinthians 3:23 (NKJV)

Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.  1 Corinthians 15:28 (NKJV)

After reading 1 Corinthians 3:23 and 15:28, would you say “Then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him” and “Christ is God’s” makes “the Son” God?  I wouldn’t.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a load voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46 (NKJV)

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3 (NKJV)

The Son cried out with a load voice” calling to “My God,” His God, “the only true God”.  This agrees with “and Christ is God’s” and “the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him”.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.  1 Corinthians 15:3-8 (NKJV)

Knowing Paul knew “Christ” is, “according to the Scriptures,” “the Son” in 1 Corinthians 15:28, I give the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” a 0% chance of being “seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also.”  Paul did not consider “The Son is God” in his travels.

If Paul had written [Christ is God] instead of “and Christ is God’s,” I’d be questioning his motives because there’s absolutely no reason to believe he supports it elsewhere in his writings.  Since I know the Spirit of God led Paul to write “and Christ is God’s,” I’m well aware of where the problem lies.     

The Anthanasian Creed is the problem.  Turning people away from [Biblical] truths to false teachings, is its claim to fame.

Here’s one solution to the problem: when talking about the Anthanasian Creed don’t ever say “according to the Scriptures,” unless of course you’re exposing it as a false doctrine.  The best way to handle the Anthanasian Creed, is to get rid of it altogether. 

God bless.

Touching The Fingerprints Of God

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

When it comes to God’s plan of salvation, proving it is not a problem for those understanding it with 100% accuracy.  This eliminates the possibility of false doctrines surfacing or becoming the foundation of one’s system of belief. 

When it comes to God’s plan of salvation my friends, the [Biblical] Yeshua is key.  If it agrees with the teachings of the [Biblical] Yeshua, it has 100% chance of working in perfect harmony with God’s plan of salvation. 

I say [Biblical] Yeshua because man has their own ideas of who they want Him to be.

The question becomes, who is this [Biblical] Yeshua?

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.” Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel. And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace.  Micah 5:2-5 (NKJV)

The [Biblical] Yeshua was born in “Bethlehem” some two thousand years ago “And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God.”

“And has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:6 (NKJV).  The Apostle John is speaking of Yeshua here.

No need to look elsewhere for anything here my friends.  According to Micah 5:4 and Revelation 1:6 “His God,” the [Biblical] Yeshua’s God [is] in full control of His own plan of salvation.

There’s another “method of salvation” however, one that teaches its followers to quote Yeshua’s teachings but not to accept them for what they’re saying.  It surfaced in 325-AD and is known to us today as the Anthanasian Creed.  After reading Micah 5:2-5 and Revelation 1:6, it’ll be safe for me to say:

Those teaching the Anthanasian Creeds [false] method of salvation believe they’re doing the right thing.  The Anthanasian Creed is [forcing] its followers to teach the wrong thing, which amounts to wasted time and misled followers.

As a firm believer [in] Messiah Yeshua it is my obligation to tell you, the safest thing one could do is to not lean on their own understanding of that which has, the fingerprints of God all over it.

God bless.
