When God Said He Was Making All Things New He Began with Himself

When God said in Revelation 21:5, “I am making all things new,” it was an echo of the promises He had made through Isaiah (42:9; 43:19; 48:6) centuries before.  When He did make all things new, He would begin with Himself.

God would leave the comforts and privileges of Deity and live as one of us: Jesus of Nazareth would be His name.  He would be rejected by those who had the most reason to accept Him.  So hostile would be the rejection that this Nazarene would be crucified.  From this humble beginning, God re-birthed Himself in the human imagination.  For He was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven, continuing a process that would lead to an entirely new creation (Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; Galatians 6:15) with Christ at its center (Colossians 1:18-20).

God became Christ, and thus He will reign forevermore.  He is not going back to the way things were before…and neither are we.  Truly, God is making all things new.  (The Trinity is a way of saying God is not really making all things new, and this is why we must follow Christ and not the Trinity.)

The Trinity Denies the Blessing of Abraham to Jesus

The blessing of Abraham included fatherhood.  What was more central to Abraham’s whole experience with God than his becoming a father against all human odds?

Jesus is undoubtedly a son of Abraham.  In fact, He is the ultimate and most important son of Abraham.  How, therefore, could He be denied the blessing of being a father?

We should also add that the blessing of Abraham was not merely to be a father (great as that blessing is) but was also to be a “father of many nations.”  That’s what the name change from Abram (meaning “exalted father”) to Abraham (meaning “father of many”) was all about (See Genesis 17:1-6).

If Jesus was not the son of Abraham He could not legitimately be the Messiah.  Since He is obviously the son of Abraham and the only legitimate Messiah, why then tolerate a doctrine (i.e. the Trinity) which forever deprives Him of the Abrahamic blessing of being called “Father”?

The Trinity Denies Fatherhood to Jesus

One of the obvious errors of the Trinity doctrine is that it denies fatherhood to Jesus.  The Trinity describes Jesus as ” not” Father.  How can this doctrine be so when the prophets said Jesus would be “Father”?  (For example, see Isaiah 9:6.)

Moreover, if Jesus was the Bridegroom and the church was His bride as the New Testament says, how could this marriage be a barren one – that is, one which could produce no  children ?

Just as surely as Jesus was the Bridegroom, so surely He is our Heavenly Father.  Bless His name forever!

Let Us Be the Sons and Daughters of Jesus Christ

In 2 Corinthians 1:20 the apostle Paul wrote that all the promises of God are “Yes” and “Amen” through Jesus Christ.  Later on in the letter (6:18) he quoted an example of just such a promise:

“I will be a Father to you and you shall be sons and daughters to Me.”

Thus we should acknowledge that we are all sons and daughters of Jesus Christ – and act like it!

Jesus Needed to Be Married Before Becoming the Father

Paul referred to the New Testament church as the bride of Christ, and, on that basis among others, he and the other apostles sought to prepare that bride to be taken by the Bridegroom the way Mordecai and others prepared Esther to be taken as queen by King Ahasuerus (Esther 1-2).

First comes marriage, then comes fatherhood.  This is God’s way.  And God certainly follows His own protocols.  For this reason Jesus is not proclaimed as Father in the New Testament, but we can certainly do so now because He has come in His kingdom.  (See also the previous post.)  Jesus is not an illegitimate father – He earned the right.

Jesus Was Not Called “Father” in the New Testament Because It Was Not Yet Time

There is a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).  God does everything in due time.  For this reason we should not grow weary in well doing for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary (Galatians 6:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:13).

The process of Messiah’s sufferings and glories (Luke 24:25-27; 1 Peter 1:10-11) was a due process with each of the sufferings and each of the glories coming in its own due time.  Because of this, it would have been premature and confusing to routinely address Jesus as “Father” prior to His final exaltation at the coming of the kingdom of God (which occurred shortly after the New Testament documents were written) just as it would have been premature to proclaim Him as Messiah prior to the completion of His sufferings (Matthew 16:20-21).

But that Jesus would ultimately be called “Father” is as sure as the Old Testament prophecies such as Isaiah 9:6 and 22:21-24.

Move Beyond the Trinity to Understand Christ

As it says in yesterday’s post, The Trinity Is a Roadblock to Understanding Christ.  Move beyond the trinity concept and seek Christ our Lord.

The Trinity presents God as three persons.  God is only one person.  Jesus of Nazareth was God come to earth so we could have a way of relating to God.

Jesus did not live as God during the days of His flesh.  That’s so that He could fully relate to our experience and be an example to us.  If He were to have lived as God on earth, how would that be an example we could follow?

Lay aside the false notion of the Trinity and look to the clarity, simplicity, and purity of Jesus Christ our Lord.  As long as you cling to the complexity and confusion of the Trinity, you cannot live a life fully devoted to Christ.

The Trinity Is a Roadblock to Understanding Christ

If you embrace the idea of the Trinity, you set up a roadblock to greater understanding of Christ.

God is one.  God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.  Salvation of the soul is found in obeying Christ.  No one can obey three masters.  Choose one.  Choose Christ.  Obey Him.  Don’t just talk about Him – obey Him!

In Christ all the fullness of Deity dwells.  If you pursue Christ you will find all of God.  If you pursue the Trinity you will just be going around in circles and will be blocked from making progress with Christ.  Seek Christ the Lord.

Why Do We Keep Suppressing the Truth?

The truth is that God is all around us.  In Him we live and move and have our being.  Why do we as individuals, and as a society, keep acting as if God is absent from our lives?

Someone utters the name “Jesus Christ” as a curse and no one acts embarrassed.  If someone uttered your name as a curse when you were present wouldn’t you think others present would be embarrassed?

The answer to the question in the title is that we keep suppressing the truth because we want to keep doing whatever we want to do instead of living for God.  It’s time to change.

Repent and follow Jesus Christ!
