GOD the Father

  • These Bible studies focus on the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

    The studies use the KJV Bible and use the study method mentioned in Isaiah 28:10.

     Isaiah 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

    For a more in depth look at how to study the Bible go to "How to study the Bible".

    Does the Bible refer to GOD as a trinity. A three in one god. Or does the Bible have a different understanding of who GOD is and has man made up their own god? The first commandment says:

    Exodus 20:1  And God spake all these words, saying,

    Exodus 20:2  I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

    Exodus 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    We are not supposed to have any other gods before the GOD of the Bible. If we don't know who GOD is then how can we possibly understand the Bible. 

    These studies are from the Bible alone. We are not going to use any quotes from man, theologians, scholars or pastors. The Bible is the only book we need! JESUS used a "It is written" against Satan in the temptations that He went through. He is our Example, so we should do as our LORD and Saviour did.

    Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    Matthew 4:7  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    Satan then proceeded to use Scripture to counteract JESUS. This is what is happening today with Christians. The Bible is used to prove their own ideas, theories and sayings. Satan only quotes part of a verse, and unfortunately this is happening today as well.

    Matthew 4:6  And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    Here is the verse that Satan was quoting.

    Psalms 91:11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

    Psalms 91:12  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    What did Satan leave out? "To keep thee in all thy ways".

    Paul warned us against this.

    Acts 20:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

    2 Timothy 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears

    Has what Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3 come true? Are Christians not listening to smooth things because it is easier than the truth and obeying GOD and His Word? What I have noticed is that as Christians we would rather have the world like us than be faithful and obey GOD. The Bible warns us about this as well.

    James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

    Have we as Christians become the enemy of GOD, because we want the world to love us?

    As you can see, we need the Bible and the Bible alone! So is the trinity a man made doctrine? or is it from the Word of GOD? As Christians we must prove all things from the Word of GOD. Don't just listen to your pastor, theologian, scholar or what your denomination says, prove it from the Word of GOD. We need to get back to the Bible and the Bible alone. Have a look at "How to study the Bible"

    1 Thessalonians 5:21  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

    JESUS warned us.

    Matthew 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Of course they don't come to you like a wolf. They speak smooth sayings, sound intelligent, have a nice way about them, but they lead you astray from the truth! JESUS also warned us about the false doctrines out there from the church leaders.

    Matthew 16:6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

    Matthew 16:12  Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

    There is a cry in the Bible at the end of time for God's people to come out.

    Revelation 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    Let us study the Bible and the Bible alone!

  • John 17:3, Who is the true GOD?

    John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

    JESUS is praying to His Father as we see in this first verse.

    John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

    JESUS says that life eternal is knowing the 'true GOD and JESUS CHRIST". Well we all know who JESUS is, OR do we? These studies are on the True GOD and JESUS CHRIST. This is important as John reveals in 1 John.

    1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    Are we as Christians denying the true GOD as mentioned in John 17:3? Are we antichrist and don't even know it? Is this because we have not studied our Bibles? As we have just listen to our pastors, theologians, scholars and what the denomination says! Are we in trouble of denying the Father and His Son? I believe we are. This is all due to John 17:3. How can we have eternal life when we believe that GOD is one in three or three in one, a trinity. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that believing in the trinity is life eternal. I have seen statements from a denomination that claims this.

    1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

    The trinity doctrine does not have a true Son of GOD. It has "God the Son", which is just a title and is not the same as the Son of GOD. You see the Son of GOD is a Son of the true GOD. We see that the true GOD is the Father. This is done in another more in depth study.

    1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

    John believed that JESUS is a literal Son of the true GOD!

    John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    Son is not a metaphor here in the Bible otherwise GOD and JESUS would have lied to us. It is absurd to think that people today are saying this, that Son is a metaphor. This is said by the so called learned men in the denominations.

    If GOD did not send His literal Son then we have no eternal life. This is what the Scriptures are telling us here. Eternal life is believing in the true GOD and JESUS CHRIST whom He sent. The Scriptures reveal to us that GOD had a Son to send and that is what He did!

  • One GOD

    This study is about the "one GOD" in the Bible. Majority of Christians believe that GOD is three in one. The question arises, is this true? Is this what the Bible actually teaches? Or has man with his philosophy distorted who GOD is? We will use the Bible and the Bible alone in these studies. There are a lot of quotes out there that could be used, but we feel that it would be better to stick to a "thus saith the Lord". This is what Jesus used against Satan in the three temptation in the wilderness.

    Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    Matthew 4:7  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    As Christians we should follow the example if our Lord and Saviour. We should only use the Bible and the Bible alone. Let us begin with the study.

     We will have a look at all the verses that speak of the "one GOD"

    Deuteronomy 6:4  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

    Malachi 2:10  Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

    Mark 12:32  And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

    What was JESUS' response to the scribe?

    Mark 12:34  And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

    JESUS did not reply and say that he was wrong and that there are three in one god. The Israelites never believed in a god that was more than one. We need to remember this, as GOD had given them the truth so they could take it to the world and to teach them who GOD was.

    Romans 3:30  Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

    1 Corinthians 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

    Paul says that it is the Father who is the "one GOD". What did Jesus have to say about this?

    John 17:1  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

    John 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

    JESUS is praying to the Father. This we see in verse 1.

    John 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

    JESUS calls the Father the "only true GOD"! Jesus never prayed to the Holy Spirit, or did He ever teach us to either. He taught us to pray to the Father. There is no authority in the Bible to pray to the Holy Spirit as some denominations are doing today.

    Matthew 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    1 Timothy 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    The verse in Timothy does not have a three in one god here. If it did, then JESUS would be mentioned twice.

    James 2:19  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

    The devils believe that there is only one GOD. The majority of the Christian world today does not even believe what the devils believe. The devils were once angels that stood before GOD, so they must know better and James says that they know that there is only one GOD. Yet again the verse does not mention three in one. GOD could have easily put this in the Bible so that there would be no confusion in who He is. JESUS Himself also says that GOD is one.

    Mark 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    Is JESUS not better authority than some pastor, theologian or scholar? Well of course He is better than all these! Before you say, well where did you get your degree from? Just remember that JESUS did not go to the schools of the pharisees. He too was not educated like the people that we are listening to today. Where in the Bible does it say that we need an education to understand what GOD is teaching us? This is what GOD says:

    Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

    Let us reason with GOD. The only way to do this is through His Word, the Bible. Let us not go to man for our answers. Let us go to GOD.

    The Father is GOD and He is the only one!

     

  • The Father

    What did JESUS say about the Father?

    John 17:1  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
    John 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
    John 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

    JESUS is praying to His Father and in verse 3 He calls Him the "only true GOD". We can't argue with what JESUS says as He should know!

    John 17:25  O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

    This also shows that JESUS has a Father. In the trinity doctrine there is no actual Father as they are all one. A three in one god, or a one in three god does not have a literal Father as JESUS is saying here in John 17. JESUS calls GOD His Father.

    John 8:19  Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
    John 8:54  Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
    Matthew 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 10:32  Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 10:33  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 11:27  All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
    Matthew 12:50  For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
    Matthew 16:17  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 18:10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 18:19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
    Matthew 20:23  And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.
    Matthew 24:36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
    Matthew 26:29  But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
    Matthew 26:39  And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
    Matthew 26:53  Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
    Luke 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
    John 5:43  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
    John 6:32  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

    Even when JESUS went to Heaven after His resurrection He still called GOD His Father.

    Revelation 2:27  And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
    Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
    Revelation 3:21  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

     We can trust what JESUS says over man as He is the truth!

    John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    JESUS says He has a Father and we must believe what He says, otherwise we make JESUS a liar! Did JESUS have a GOD?

    John 20:17  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

    He says that He has a Father and a GOD, so we must believe what the Bible says!

    What did the apostles say about GOD been the Father? Did they come up with a man made theory like the trinity?

    2 Peter 1:17  For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
    1 Corinthians 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

    Paul says one GOD, the Father. Today it is taught that it is a three in one god or a one in three god. This is not what Paul was teaching. He said one GOD, the Father!

    Galatians 1:1  Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
    Galatians 1:3  Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
    Ephesians 6:23  Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Philippians 2:11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
    1 Thessalonians 1:1  Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Here in Thessalonians, Paul calls GOD our Father. He did not say "GOD the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit" as Christians are saying today. No, GOD is our Father!

    2 Timothy 1:2  To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Titus 1:4  To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
    1 Peter 1:2  Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
    2 John 3  Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
    Jude 1  Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

     We are taught by JESUS and the apostles that we have a Father in Heaven. This we have to believe that the true GOD is our Father and that JESUS has a Father too.
