Trinity: True or False?

17 Feb

The doctrine of the Trinity defines God as one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who are co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.

Let’s examine the scriptures that call into question whether the trinity doctrine is true or false for we will be justified or condemned by every word we speak and teach:

Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.

Matthew 12:36 And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

James 3:1 Be not many teachers, my brethren, knowing that we shall receive greater condemnation.

First can Jesus be completely coequal with His Father if He declared His Father “my God” while on the cross before His resurrection?:

Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Then Jesus declared His Father “my God” after His resurrection but before His final ascension into heaven:

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

Then Jesus declared His Father “my God” 4 times after His ascension while seated at the right hand of His Father:

Revelation 3:12 He that overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and mine own new name.

Paul and Peter both agreed that the Father is the God of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 15:6 that with one accord ye may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort;

2 Corinthians 11:31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, he who is blessed for evermore knoweth that I lie not.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ:

1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Twice in Corinthians; Paul spoke of our Father’s authority and possession over Christ as His head just as Christ has authority and possession over us as our head:

1 Corinthians 3:23 and ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Next if the Holy Spirit is a distinct person as the trinity doctrine requires then why does the Holy Spirit not have a throne with the Father and the Son?:

Revelation 3:21 He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me(Jesus) in my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne.

This is because the Holy Spirit does not have his own soul and body with which to sit on a throne like the Father and His Son Jesus have.

Our Father has a Spirit, soul, body, and a throne:

Matthew 12:18 Behold, my servant(Jesus) whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, And he shall declare judgment to the Gentiles.

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till thrones were placed, and one that was ancient of days did sit: his raiment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames, and the wheels thereof burning fire.

Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus has a spirit, soul, body, and a throne as well:

Luke 23:46 And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost.

John 12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause came I unto this hour.

Matthew 26:12 For in that she poured this ointment upon my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.

Matthew 25:31 But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory:

Daniel was shown in a night vision Jesus as the son of man brought before His Father who as the ancient of days gave Him dominion, glory, and a kingdom:

Daniel 7:13-14 I saw in the night-visions, and, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven one like unto a son of man, and he came even to the ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. (14) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

There is not one scripture that declares the Holy Spirit has a soul, physical body, or a throne as the Father and Son but He is seen as the bodily form of a dove when descending upon Jesus:

Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son: in thee I am well pleased.

This is because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Father:

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, in whom ye were sealed unto the day of redemption.

The Holy Spirit is the omnipresent aspect of God the Father that dwells in us:

John 4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

Psalms 139:7-8 Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? (8) If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there.

1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1 Corinthians 2:10-12 But unto us God revealed them through the Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (11) For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in him? even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God. (12) But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God.

This is why Peter could accuse Ananias as a believer of lying to both God Most High and His Holy Spirit. The presence of God was represented through His omnipresent Holy Spirit who is the essence of Him:

Acts 5:3-4  But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  (4)  Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God(Most High~Father).

Many claim such passages as Matthew 28:19 prove the trinity doctrine is true but the words “Father”, “Son”, and “Holy Spirit” are titles, not names. The word “name” is translated from the Greek word “onoma” which means nature, character, and authority. So Jesus was telling His disciples to baptize new disciples into the nature, character, and authority of the “Father”, “Son”, and “Holy Spirit”:

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

The “Father”, His “Holy Spirit”, and His Word which became His Son are one in nature, character, and authority. Our Father through His Holy Spirit gave Jesus His nature, character, authority, and power:

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.

1 Corinthians 1:24 but unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and a fame went out concerning him through all the region round about.

2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; (3) seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue; (4) whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.

Peter then goes on to list seven of the character traits the Father gave His Son that He wants us to learn to manifest in the diligence of our faith:

2 Peter 1:5-11 Yea, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply virtue; and in your virtue knowledge; (6) and in your knowledge self-control; and in your self-control patience; and in your patience godliness; (7) and in your godliness brotherly kindness; and in your brotherly kindness love. (8) For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful unto the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (9) For he that lacketh these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins. (10) Wherefore, brethren, give the more diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never stumble: (11) for thus shall be richly supplied unto you the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

David declares in Psalms 110 that his Lord must sit at the right hand of His Father who is the Most High God until He makes all the enemies of Jesus His footstool:

Psalms 110:1-7 A Psalm of David. The LORD(Most High God~Father)  said unto my Lord(Word~Jesus), Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. (2) The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. (3) Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. (4) The LORD(Most High God~Father) hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou(Word~Jesus) art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. (5) The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. (6) He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. (7) He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Jesus quoted that Psalm of David to confound the Pharisees who did not understand that He came in the flesh through the lineage of David as Jesus and yet existed as the Word before David:

Matthew 22:41-46 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, (42) saying, What think ye of the Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. (43) He saith unto them, How then doth David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying, (44) The Lord(God Most High) said unto my Lord(Word~Jesus), Sit thou on my right hand, Till I put thine enemies underneath thy feet? (45) If David then calleth him Lord, how is he his son? (46) And no one was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Many often use John 10:30 to declare the Father and Jesus are one in essence:

John 10:30 I and the Father are one.

But Jesus proved that He and His Father were only one in unity and not in essence:

John 17:11 And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are.

John 17:22 And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that they may be one, even as we are one;

Jesus was praying to His Father in John chapter 17 for His disciples that “they may be one, even as we(Father & Jesus) are one”. We as disciples can only ever be one in unity so Jesus is declaring He is one in unity with His Father and not in essence:

John 17:20-21 Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; (21) that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me.

To be “perfected into one” is to be filled with the Word and the Holy Spirit so there is complete unity and agreement in the truth:

John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.

The Jews wanted to stone Jesus for saying “I and the Father are one”:

John 10:30-33  I and the Father are one.  (31)  The Jews took up stones again to stone him.  (32)  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from the Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?  (33)  The Jews answered him, For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

They wanted to stone Jesus because He was a man claiming to be a “Deity”(a God) to which Jesus reached back to Psalm 82 to prove that men can indeed be “deities”:

John 10:34-36  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  (35)  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken),  (36)  say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

The NT English word “God” or “god” comes from the Greek word “theos” and simply means “deity”:

All of the Jews who by natural birth through the 12 patriarchs were “deities”(gods) and sons of the Most High God their Father:

Psalms 82:6  I said, Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High(God and Father of all sons who rule as gods).

Luke 6:35-36  But love your enemies, and do them good, and lend, never despairing; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be sons of the Most High: for he is kind toward the unthankful and evil.  (36)  Be ye merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

The name “Israel” given to Jacob means “he who will rule as God” as Strong’s definition proves here:

Anyone born again through Christ is of Abraham’s seed and a part of the promise to “Israel”:

Galatians 3:26-29 For ye are all sons of God(Most High), through faith, in Christ Jesus. (27) For as many of you as were baptized into Christ did put on Christ. (28) There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male and female; for ye all are one man in Christ Jesus. (29) And if ye are Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise.

Romans 9:6-8 But it is not as though the word of God hath come to nought. For they are not all Israel, that are of Israel: (7) neither, because they are Abraham’s seed, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. (8) That is, it is not the children of the flesh that are children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for a seed.

For more on who “All Israel” is please see this link:

Jesus made it very clear that it was the works in His Father that Jesus manifested out of Himself that proved the Father was in Him and He was in the Father. So they were ONE in nature, character, and authority not essence:

John 10:37-38  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.  (38)  But if I do them, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.

Jesus was speaking to the lost sheep of the house of Israel at the moment. But Jesus also made it very clear earlier in the chapter that there were other sheep of the Gentiles who He is bringing in to become ONE flock ONE shepherd:

John 10:16  And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice: and they shall become one flock, one shepherd.

As sons of God we are all “deities” which are “gods” under our shepherd Jesus:

1 Corinthians 8:5-6 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth; as there are gods many, and lords many; (6)  yet to us there is one God(Most High), the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.

Jesus often silenced the demons because they knew He was the Son of the Most High God and wanted to declare it:

Mark 1:34  And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 5:6-7 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshipped him; (7) and crying out with a loud voice, he saith, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure thee by God, torment me not.

Luke 4:41 And demons also came out from many, crying out, and saying, Thou art the Son of God. And rebuking them, he suffered them not to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.

Most teachers scoff at the idea that Jesus had a beginning but the scriptures prove He was the first born of all creation:

Colossians 1:13-15 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son(Jesus) of his(Father~Most High God) love; (14) in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: (15)  who is the image of the invisible God(Most High), the firstborn of all creation;

Let’s see if we can prove Jesus is the firstborn of all creation through precept upon precept. We know that Jesus is the Word of God:

Revelation 19:13 And he is arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

We know that Jesus was the Word before He became flesh:

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten(Word~Jesus) from the Father(Most High God), full of grace and truth.

We know that Jesus as the Word of God is the wisdom of God:

1 Corinthians 1:24 but unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

As the Wisdom of God, He spoke as the Word of God through the OT prophets and NT apostles:

Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send unto them prophets and apostles; and some of them they shall kill and persecute;

We know that the Word of God who is Jesus is the same from the Old Testament through the New Testament and for ever:

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, (yea) and for ever.

So if the wisdom of God is the Word of God who became Jesus; let’s see what “Wisdom” has to say about Himself:

Proverbs 8:12-36 I wisdom have made prudence my dwelling, And find out knowledge and discretion. (13) The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate. (14) Counsel is mine, and sound knowledge: I am understanding; I have might. (15) By me kings reign, And princes decree justice. (16) By me princes rule, And nobles, even all the judges of the earth. (17) I love them that love me; And those that seek me diligently shall find me. (18) Riches and honor are with me; Yea, durable wealth and righteousness. (19) My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; And my revenue than choice silver. (20) I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice; (21) That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, And that I may fill their treasuries. (22) Jehovah(Most High God~Father) possessed me(His Word) in the beginning of his way, Before his works of old. (23) I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Before the earth was. (24) When there were no depths, I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water. (25) Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills was I brought forth; (26) While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, Nor the beginning of the dust of the world. (27) When he established the heavens, I was there: When he set a circle upon the face of the deep, (28) When he made firm the skies above, When the fountains of the deep became strong, (29) When he gave to the sea its bound, That the waters should not transgress his commandment, When he marked out the foundations of the earth; (30) Then I was by him, as a master workman; And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him, (31) Rejoicing in his habitable earth; And my delight was with the sons of men. (32) Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me; For blessed are they that keep my ways. (33) Hear instruction, and be wise, And refuse it not. (34) Blessed is the man that heareth me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. (35) For whoso findeth me findeth life, And shall obtain favor of Jehovah. (36) But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: All they that hate me love death.

So Father possessed His Word in the beginning and set Him up before the earth was, before the depths of the seas, and before the hills were. Father brought forth His Word out of Himself as His master workman that He used to speak forth all the rest of His creation:

Psalms 33:6-9 By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made, And all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (7) He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap: He layeth up the deeps in store-houses. (8) Let all the earth fear Jehovah: Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. (9) For he spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

All of Proverbs 8:12-36 is clearly Jesus speaking as the Wisdom that Father brought forth from Himself. But verses 34 and 35 also prove the Word who became Jesus is the door that we enter into life through:

John 10:9  I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture.

Jesus spoke in the NT exactly what Proverbs 8 teaches about Him coming forth out of His Father as the Word who became Jesus in the flesh:

John 8:42-43 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me. (43) Why do ye not understand my speech?  Even because ye cannot hear my word.

John 13:3  Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came forth from God, and goeth unto God,

John 16:27-28  for the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from the Father.  (28)  I came out from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go unto the Father.

Most “trinity” advocates try to use this passage in Isaiah to declare Jesus is the “everlasting Father”:

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

But just like a natural father has a son and soon desires his son become a father as well; Jesus was spiritually born of His Father and became a spiritual Father as well of “little children”:

John 13:33 Little children, yet a little while I(Jesus) am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say unto you.

The apostle John was one of those “little children” Jesus was speaking to in John chapter 13 who then went on to raise up spiritual “children” of his own:

3 John 1:4 Greater joy have I(John) none than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.

Jesus also declared himself “the beginning of the creation of God” when speaking to John on the isle of Patmos:

Revelation 3:14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God:

Father spoke forth His Word as “the beginning of the creation of God” and declared Him our God. Father then used His Word as His master workman to make all of the rest of His creation through Him”:

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) The same was in the beginning with God. (3)  All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made.

Colossians 1:15-17 who(Word~Jesus) is the image of the invisible God(Most High~Father), the firstborn of all creation; (16) for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; (17) and he(Word~Jesus) is before all things, and in him all things consist.

The Holy Spirit clearly moved Paul to declare that our Father created Jesus:

Colossians 3:10 and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him(Father) that created him(Jesus):

All sons of God are the God(Elohim) who standeth in the congregation of the Most High God(EL) who is our Father:

Psalms 82:1-8 A Psalm of Asaph. God(Elohim) standeth in the congregation of God(EL); He judgeth among the gods(Elohim). (2) How long will ye judge unjustly, And respect the persons of the wicked? Selah. (3) Judge the poor and fatherless: Do justice to the afflicted and destitute. (4) Rescue the poor and needy: Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. (5) They know not, neither do they understand; They walk to and fro in darkness: All the foundations of the earth are shaken. (6)  I said, Ye are gods(Elohim), And all of you sons of the Most High(Father). (7) Nevertheless ye shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes. (8) Arise, O God(Elohim), judge the earth; For thou shalt inherit all the nations.

For more understanding on Psalm 82 please see this link:

The first 85 times the word “God” was used in the book of Genesis it was translated from the Hebrew word “Elohim” and was speaking of two “Gods” being the Father as the Most High God and His Word who became His Son Jesus. Father used His Word to speak forth all of the rest of creation. This is proven with God being described as plural with the use of the pronouns “us” and “our”:

Genesis 1:26 And God(Elohim) said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 14:18-22 is the first place the word “God” is translated from the singular Hebrew word “EL” in the old testament and just happens to be the first place the term “Most High” is used proving our Father is Jehovah God Most High:

Genesis 14:18-22 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was priest of God(EL) Most High. (19) And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of God(EL) Most High, possessor of heaven and earth: (20) and blessed be God(EL) Most High, who hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him a tenth of all. (21) And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. (22) And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up my hand unto Jehovah, God(EL) Most High, possessor of heaven and earth,

Psalms 97:9  For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods(Elohim).

1 Corinthians 11:3  But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God(His Father~Most High).

After Jehovah introduces Himself as the Most High God, in Genesis chapter 14, he then proceeds to introduce us for the first time to the other God of the Elohim which is His Word as His messenger that He sent 239 times in the OT:

Genesis 15:1 After these things the word of Jehovah came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

The “Word of Jehovah” is also called the “angel of Jehovah” 52 times in the OT beginning here:

Genesis 16:7 And the angel of Jehovah found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

We discover the “angel of Jehovah” is also the “Word of Jehovah” when we examine Zechariah where this angel refers to himself as “whom they have pierced”. We know the Word became Jesus our God in the flesh under our Father who is the Most High God:

Zechariah 12:1 & 8-10 The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Thus saith Jehovah, who stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him:….(8) In that day shall Jehovah defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of Jehovah(Word~Jesus) before them. (9) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. (10) And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto me(Jesus) whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him(Jesus), as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.

Jesus as the angel of Jehovah was also called “Wonderful” in Judges and Isaiah:

Judges 13:17-22 And Manoah said unto the angel of Jehovah, What is thy name, that, when thy words come to pass, we may do thee honor? (18) And the angel of Jehovah said unto him, Wherefore askest thou after my name, seeing it is Wonderful? (19) So Manoah took the kid with the meal-offering, and offered it upon the rock unto Jehovah: and the angel did wondrously, and Manoah and his wife looked on. (20) For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of Jehovah ascended in the flame of the altar: and Manoah and his wife looked on; and they fell on their faces to the ground. (21) But the angel of Jehovah did no more appear to Manoah or to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of Jehovah. (22) And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Hebrews clearly proves the Father is God Most High of Jesus, who is also a God, with the phrase “thy God”:

Hebrews 1:7-9 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels winds, And his ministers a flame of fire: (8) but of the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God(Deity ~ Jesus), is forever and ever; And the sceptre of uprightness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. (9) Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, thy God(Deity~Father~Most High God), hath anointed thee(Jesus) With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Father God Most High, whose Word is within Him, brought Him forth in eternity past. His Word was then sent to take on a body of flesh as a “Son of man” who declared the Father’s nature, character, and authority:

John 1:18  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

John 5:26-27 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: (27) and he(Father) gave him(Jesus) authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.

Micah 5:2 But thou, Beth-lehem Ephrathah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of thee shall one(Jesus) come forth unto me(Father~Jehovah Most High God) that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.

Jesus clearly defined Himself as both a “man” and a “son of man” but His Father was never either:

Numbers 23:19 God(EL~Father Jehovah Most High) is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

The roll of Father’s Book declares He would prepare a body of flesh for His Word to manifest as His Son who called His Father “O God”:

Hebrews 10:5-10  Wherefore when he(the Word of God) cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, But a body didst thou prepare for me;  (6)  In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hadst no pleasure:  (7)  Then said I, Lo, I am come, in the roll of the book it is written of me(Word~Jesus), To do thy will, O God(His Father~Most High God).  (8)  Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein (the which are offered according to the law),  (9)  then hath he said, Lo, I am come to do thy will. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.  (10)  By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

We have a right to be joint heirs as gods with the Son of God who is our head: 

John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Romans 8:17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God(Father~Most High), and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him.

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Jesus loosed us from our sins by his blood and he made us to be a kingdom, to be priests unto His God and Father:

Revelation 1:5-6 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loveth us, and loosed us from our sins by his blood; (6) and he made us to be a kingdom, to be priests unto his God(Most High) and Father; to him be the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

And as I pointed out earlier the head of Jesus is His Father who is the Most High God:

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Jesus clearly diminished himself in comparison to His Father:

Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good save one, even God(Father~Most High God).

John 17:3 And this is the eternal life, to know thee the only true God(Father~Most High God), and whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ.

The English word “Godhead” comes from the Greek word “theotes” which means supreme divinity or “head God” or simply another title for the Most High God:

Colossians 2:8-10 Take heed lest there shall be any one that maketh spoil of you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ: (9)  for in him(Jesus) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, (10) and in him ye are made full, who is the head of all principality and power:

So in the body of Jesus dwelleth all of the Word and the seven Spirits of His Father the Most High God:

Revelation 3:1 And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: These things saith he(Jesus) that hath the seven Spirits of God(Most High~His Father), and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and thou art dead.

The seven Spirit of the Most High God and Father are listed in Isaiah chapter 11:

Isaiah 11:1-3 And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. (2) And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him(Jesus), the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. (3) And his(Jesus’) delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah(His Father~God Most High); and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears;

Jesus always referred to the Most High God as “my Father” and Christians should as well:

Jeremiah 3:19 But I said, How I will put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of the nations! and I said, Ye shall call me My Father, and shall not turn away from following me.

John 10:29 My Father, who hath given them unto me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

John 14:10-12 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father abiding in me doeth his works. (11) Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. (12) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.

When Jesus said “I am in the Father” He was saying He was the Word that was always in the Father just like our words are always in us. When we speak it should be a manifestation of who we are as believers:

Matthew 12:36-37 And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

When Jesus said “the Father is in me” He was saying the Father’s Word(s) and His Spirit were in Him just like they should be in us:

Matthew 10:19-20 But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. (20)  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall bear witness of me:

1 Peter 4:11  if any man speaketh, speaking as it were oracles of God; if any man ministereth, ministering as of the strength which God supplieth: that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, whose is the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

The righteousness of our Father is in His Word who then manifested that righteousness in the flesh as Jesus which is what we are called to do as well:

Jeremiah 23:5-6 Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and he(Jesus) shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. (6) In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely; and this is his name whereby he shall be called: Jehovah our righteousness.

John 5:26-27 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: (27) and he(Father) gave him(Jesus) authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.

So the true believer is first indwelt with the Spirit of Christ which is the seed(Word) of the Father that creates the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh:

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

2 Corinthians 4:11 For we who live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God(Most High~Father) dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Then the Spirit of the Father God Most High wants to speak through us:

Matthew 10:20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.

So the trinity doctrine as it is worded above is a false doctrine. A true description of the Father, His Holy Spirit, and His Son Jesus is:

Our Father is the Most High God who has an omnipresent Holy Spirit. He brought forth His Word out of Him as the beginning of His creation and declared Him our God. He then sent His Spirit with His Word as His seed into a virgin to bring forth His firstborn Son Jesus who as a son of man became the Lamb of God. Jesus is now at the right hand of His Father and putting all enemies under his feet until the last enemy of death is subject to Him. He will then be subject to His Father as God Most High who is all in all:

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Matthew 1:18-20  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.  (19)  And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.  (20)  But when he thought on these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 1:31-35 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (32) He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (33) and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (34) And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? (35) And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also the holy thing which is begotten shall be called the Son of God.

John 1:29 On the morrow he seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world!

Luke 22:69 But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of the power of God.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 Then cometh the end, when he(Jesus) shall deliver up the kingdom to God(Most High), even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power. (25) For he must reign, till he hath put all his enemies under his feet. (26) The last enemy that shall be abolished is death. (27) For, He put all things in subjection under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put in subjection, it is evident that he is excepted who did subject all things unto him. (28) And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself(Jesus) be subjected to him(Father God Most High) that did subject all things unto him, that God(Most High) may be all in all.
