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(Word~Jesus), and he came even to the ancient of days(His Father), and they(angels) brought him near before him. (14) And there was given him(Word~Jesus) 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 from within Him throughout the third heaven and downward even into the depths of hell:

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.

Our Father from His throne sends His Holy Spirit to dwell inside our temple if we chose to obey His Word for that is how we prove we love Him and worship Him:

John 4:23-24  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers. (24)  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

John 17:17  Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.

Acts 5:32  And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God(Father) hath given to them that obey him.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (17) If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.

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, power, and wisdom:

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.

Jesus clearly said that the Holy Spirit of His Father was the finger of His Father by which He had the power to cast our demons:

Matthew 12:28 But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then is the kingdom of God come upon you.

Luke 11:20 But if I by the finger of God cast out demons, then is the kingdom of God come upon you.

This same power of the kingdom of God is granted to us through the many promises of our Father’s Word that Jesus demonstrated:

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 the seven 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 the footstool of His feet of His body:

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”:

https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G2316&t=KJV

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 over their flesh).

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:

https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H3478&t=KJV

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.

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.

When Jesus said in John 10:38 that “the Father is in me, and I in the Father”, He was proving that He was filled with the Spirit of the Father and was the Word of the Father that came forth out of the Father and made flesh. As a man of flesh, Jesus proved that the Father’s Word was in Him so that Jesus only spake His Father’s Word:

John 5:19-20  Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.  (20)  For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel.

John 8:26-29  I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you: howbeit he that sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these speak I unto the world.  (27)  They perceived not that he spake to them of the Father.  (28)  Jesus therefore said, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things.  (29)  And he that sent me is with me; he hath not left me alone; for I do always the things that are pleasing to him.

John 12:44-50  And Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.  (45)  And he that beholdeth me beholdeth him that sent me.  (46)  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me may not abide in the darkness.  (47)  And if any man hear my sayings, and keep them not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.  (48)  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my sayings, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day.  (49)  For I spake not from myself; but the Father that sent me, he hath given me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.  (50)  And I know that his commandment is life eternal: the things therefore which I speak, even as the Father hath said unto me, so I speak.

John 14:10  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.

Jesus was a man of flesh who proved that being filled with the Word of His Father and being filled with the Spirit of His Father will bring the perfection of His Father:

Matthew 5:48  Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

As a son of our Most High Father we are “gods” that have ALL the same promises that Jesus always exercised in His flesh:

2 Corinthians 7:1  Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Hebrews 5:7-9  Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear,  (8)  though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered;  (9)  and having been made perfect, he(Jesus) became unto all them(Christians) that obey him the author of eternal salvation;

Jesus was speaking to the lost sheep of the house of Israel at the moment. But Jesus also made it very clear earlier in John chapter 10 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 Him:

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~Father), 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 His 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(the Word ~ Jesus); 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(out of His Father God Most High), 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(the Word) was by him(His Father), 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.

The Father always existed as the Most High God with His Spirit and His Word within His bosom in eternity past:

Psalms 90:2  Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God(EL ~ Most High God the Father).

John 1:18  No man hath seen God(Most High God the Father). at any time; the only begotten Son(the Word who became Jesus in the flesh), who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Father has unlimited power to the point of being able to declare the end from the beginning through His Word:

Isaiah 46:9-10  Remember the former things of old: for I am God(EL ~ Most High God the Father), and there is none else; I am God(Elohim ~ the Most High God with His Word), and there is none like me;  (10)  declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure;

Father with the power to declare the end from the beginning brought forth His Word out of His bosom as His firstborn Son of His love. Then through His Word He spoke of His plans of having His only begotten Son become flesh and a father as well of many sons as Proverbs 8:32 declares as well as here:

Hebrews 2:9-13  But we behold him(Jesus) who hath been made a little lower than the angels, even Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God(the Father) he(Jesus) should taste of death for every man.  (10)  For it became him(Jesus), for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons(believers) unto glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.  (11)  For both he(Jesus) that sanctifieth and they(believers) that are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he(Jesus) is not ashamed to call them brethren,  (12)  saying, I (Jesus) will declare thy(the Father) name unto my brethren, In the midst of the congregation will I sing thy praise.  (13)  And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold, I (Jesus) and the children(believers) whom God(the Father) hath given me.

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 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(Son) was with God(Father), and the Word was God(the Son of God is a God). (2) The same was in the beginning with God(Father). (3)  All things were made through him(the Word); and without him(the Word) was not anything made that hath been made.

Colossians 1:12-17 giving thanks unto the Father(God Most High), who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;  (13)  who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love;  (14)  in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: (15) who(Word~Jesus) is the image of the invisible God(Most High~Father), the firstborn of all creation; (16) for in him(Word~Jesus) 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 stand 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.

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 83:18  That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the 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, at the end of Genesis chapter 14, he then proceeds to introduce us 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 first introduced to us as the “voice of Jehovah” when God fellowshipped with Adam and Eve in the garden:   

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of Jehovah God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Jehovah God amongst the trees of the garden.

The “voice of Jehovah” is found 47 times in the OT:

https://www.blueletterbible.org/search/search.cfm?Criteria=voice+of+Jehovah&t=ASV#s=s_primary_0_1

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.

https://www.blueletterbible.org/search/search.cfm?Criteria=%22angel+of+Jehovah%22&t=ASV#s=s_primary_0_1

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.

John 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

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.

Balaam was prophesying in Numbers 24:16-17 that Jesus is the Word of Jehovah the Father God Most High that would become the star that came forth out of Jacob which is the scepter that rose out of Israel:

Numbers 24:16-17  He saith, who heareth the words of God(EL ~ the Most High God the Father), And knoweth the knowledge of the Most High(God the Father), Who seeth the vision of the Almighty(the Most High God the Father), Falling down, and having his eyes open:  (17)  I see him(the Word made flesh who is Jesus), but not now; I behold him, but not nigh: There shall come forth a star out of Jacob, And a sceptre shall rise out of Israel, And shall smite through the corners of Moab, And break down all the sons of tumult.

Psalms 89 is a beautiful prophesy of Jesus who always referred to Jehovah as “my Father” and “my God”:

Psalms 89:6-7  For who in the skies can be compared unto Jehovah? Who among the sons of the Mighty(EL ~ the Most High God the Father) is like unto Jehovah,  (7)  A God(EL ~ the Most High God the Father) very terrible in the council of the holy ones, And to be feared above all them that are round about him?

Psalms 89:26-28  He(Jehovah’s Word who became Jesus) shall cry unto me(Jehovah), Thou art my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.  (27)  I (Jehovah) also will make him my first-born(Word ~ Jesus), The highest of the kings of the earth.  (28)  My lovingkindness will I keep for him for evermore; And my covenant shall stand fast with him.

Father knew from the beginning that He was going to make man of flesh from the dust of the earth and be invisible to them because no one can see Him and live:

Exodus 33:20  And he(Father) said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live.

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

1 John 4:12  No man hath beheld God(Father) at any time: if we love one another, God(Father through His Spirit and Word) abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us:

So Father sent His Word as the “voice of Jehovah” or the “word of Jehovah” or the “angel of Jehovah” to speak to them throughout the OT:

Genesis 3:8  And they heard the voice of Jehovah God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

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.

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.

Then 4000 years later Father sent His firstborn Son of His love called His Word and Wisdom to become flesh as His perfect Lamb that through death would become a father of many sons:

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(EL ~ God the Son), Everlasting Father(of many sons), Prince of Peace.

So Father having of old time spoke unto the fathers via His Son through the prophets as the “Word of God” throughout the OT. Then at the end of these days the Father sent His Son called “Word of God” to become a man of flesh called Jesus:

Hebrews 1:1-9  God(Most High God ~ Father), having of old time spoken unto the fathers in the prophets by divers portions and in divers manners,  (2)  hath at the end of these days spoken unto us in his Son(Jesus ~ Word made flesh), whom he(Most High God ~ Father) appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds;  (3)  who being the effulgence of his glory, and the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he(Jesus ~ Word made flesh) had made purification of sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high(Most High God ~ Father);  (4)  having become by so much better than the angels, as he(Jesus ~ Word made flesh) hath inherited a more excellent name than they.  (5)  For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son(Jesus ~ Word made flesh), This day have I begotten thee? and again, I will be to him a Father( Most High God ~ Father), And he shall be to me a Son(Jesus ~ Word made flesh)?  (6)  And when he again bringeth in the firstborn into the world he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him(Jesus ~ Word made flesh).  (7)  And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels winds, And his ministers a flame of fire:  (8)  but of the Son he( Most High God ~ Father) saith, Thy throne, O God(Deity ~ Jesus ~ Word made flesh), 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 ~ the Most High God ~ Father), hath anointed thee(Jesus ~ Word made flesh) With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

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

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 His Father’s nature, character, and authority to His children:

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(Jesus’) God and Father(Most High); to him be the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

As we learned above, the head of Jesus is His Father who is His and our 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 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.

Colossians 1:27 to whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

The “Spirit of Jesus Christ” is the first Comforter who begins to dwell in our temple as born again Christians who begin calling upon our Abba Father:

Galatians 4:6  And because ye are sons, God(Father) sent forth the Spirit of his Son(Jesus) into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Then as we begin to walk in obedience to our Father’s Word, we are given the Holy Spirit when Father chooses:

Acts 5:32 And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Romans 8:9-14  But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God(Father) dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ(Jesus’ Spirit), he is none of his.  (10)  And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness.  (11)  But if the Spirit of him(the Father) that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his(Father’s) Spirit that dwelleth in you.  (12)  So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh:  (13)  for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the (Father’s)Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  (14)  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God(Father), these are sons of God.

Ephesians 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Acts 16:7 and when they were come over against Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia; and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not;

Philippians 1:19 For I know that this shall turn out to my salvation, through your supplication and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

1 Peter 1:11 searching what time or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did point unto, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glories that should follow them.

Jesus called The Holy Spirit of our Father “another Comforter” also called the “Spirit of Truth” that our Father sent after Jesus’ ascension:

John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may be with you for ever, (17) even the Spirit of truth: whom the world cannot receive; for it beholdeth him not, neither knoweth him: ye know him; for he abideth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto 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:

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.

Jesus clearly yielded up His own Spirit to the Father upon death proving His Spirit is separate from the Father’s Spirit:

Matthew 27:50  And Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit.

This along with the fact that Jesus referred to His God as “Father” and “Most High” should clearly prove that the Father came before the Son and the Father holds a position over the Son:

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.

Though the scriptures clearly prove there is the “Spirit of Jesus” and the “Holy Spirit of our Father” we do not claim Jesus’ Spirit is a “person” but for some reason many Christians have fully adopted the Catholic doctrine of a “trinity” which claims the Father’s Spirit is a “person”.

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:

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.

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:

1 Peter 3:21-22 which also after a true likeness doth now save you, even baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the interrogation of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ; (22) who is on the right hand of God(Father Most High), having gone into heaven; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

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.

The English word “name” comes form the Greek word “anoma” and means “nature, character, and authority”:

https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G3686&t=KJV

The Father gave His Son Jesus His name “nature, character, and authority”:

Philippians 2:9-11  Wherefore also God(Father) highly exalted him(Jesus), and gave unto him the name which is above every name;  (10)  that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth,  (11)  and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Ephesians 1:20-23  which he(Father) wrought in Christ, when he(Father) raised him(Jesus) from the dead, and made him(Jesus) to sit at his(Father’s) right hand in the heavenly places,  (21)  far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:  (22)  and he put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church(believers),  (23)  which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

This same authority is given to all those children who walk by faith in all the promises of His Word as Jesus had:

Luke 10:19  Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.
