The Godhead

The Spiritual Principles of Creation. The Foundation of Spiritual Truth.

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20

The invisible or spiritual things of God are understood by looking at God’s creation. Creation is a process, which begins with a thought. “In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” Genesis 1:1. To create is to have the idea or concept of something. Nothing has been made yet, the earth is still without form. "And the earth was without form... And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters…” Genesis 1:2. The Spirit of God is His Might, Power, Strength or Energy. “And God said… Genesis 1:3.  The word of God is His seed. "Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.” Luke 8:11. Spirit and Word or Energy and Seed; the two divine attributes of God, symbolized by the “two witnesses,” the “two olive trees” or “two olive branches.” These are the “two anointed ones,” embodied by Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, & John and Jesus.

Spirit and word or Energy and seed. The two things required for creation.

THE IMAGE of GOD: ” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Genesis 1:26. FATHER – SEED – ENERGY. We were literally made in the image of God when our father sowed his seed by his energy (male) into our mother (female), as God sowed His word by His Spirit (male) into mother earth (female). ABRAHAM – ISAAC – JACOB. The Hebrew name for God is ELOHIM, revealing God's image. EL= God the Father. OH = the Son. IM = the Holy Spirit. The I AM. These three are represented in the three patriarchs: Abraham represents the father: "Father Abraham.” Isaac represents the son or seed: "In Isaac shall thy seed be called.” Jacob represents the spirit, power, or energy: The mighty God of Jacob.” FATHER – SON – HOLY SPIRIT. Some say there are three in the Godhead, while others say one, proclaiming Jesus is God. The truth? The three are of one.

GOD used His SPIRIT to speak His WORD… these three are of one.
MAN uses his ENERGY to sow his SEED… these three are of one.

” In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the word." John 1:1 (Original Greek translation)

” In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 (King James translation)

“a god was the word” has been changed to “the Word was God;” an error in translation that has Christians calling Jesus God, through which they are unwittingly denying the Son, whose purpose in coming to this earth was to speak of and illustrate the spiritual works by which we can become a god or a son of God, and by which a new creation ("a new heaven and a new earth") is formed within us.

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

Having "the word" makes one a god, not God. Blasphemy is to make oneself equal with God, or God’s power. Jesus never said he was God. The word of God is the seed of God. If the seed of God is conceived in the spiritual womb of man (the heart) it will bring forth a god, not God. In likeness, if the seed of a man is conceived in the womb of a woman, that seed will bring forth a son (or daughter), not the father that sowed it.  Jesus is not God. There are 220 verses referring to Jesus as the son of God or son of man. There are only 2 verses used to claim that Jesus is God. One is a mistranslation, the other taken out of context. We’ve discussed the first, now let’s take a look at the second. ” I and my Father are one.” John 10:30. God and His seed were one up until the time God spoke, which was God sowing His seed into the earth, making all things physical. Jesus never said he was God. It was the religious peoples of his day that claimed he was saying he was God, as they do today. Jesus was saying he and His Father were one with respect to the works of creation, as God’s physical creation is a pattern of the spiritual creation that results from doing the spiritual works that Jesus spoke of and illustrated while he was on this earth.

” ... all things were made by him… John 1:1,3. 

All things are made by a seed, God’s seed proceeding from His loins. Jesus said that he proceeded and came from God, " neither came I of myself, but he sent me.” John 8:42. Jesus, the seed of God, came from God, sown into the womb of Mary. Jesus did not come of himself. The seed does not sow itself. The next logical question we should be asking ourselves is what father are we of? Jesus said,

“Ye are of your father the devil… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44

We are both physically and spiritually made in the image of God. Each of us acts as a spiritual father with spiritual seed sown through spiritual energy into a spiritual mother. Having eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil we have sown good and evil seed in the spiritual womb of that mother called the heart, the evil seed oftentimes choking out the good seed. God, called Father, sowed His seed by His Spirit into the earth, being conceived in the womb of Mary, who gave birth to a son. That son was not the Father, but that son took on the spiritual likeness or image of his Father by taking on his Father’s spiritual attributes of spirit and truth. Jesus the Christ is our pattern-man, providing the instruction for man to follow. Through the process of time the good seed within man was made ineffective through the conception of evil seed—through the conception of lies within his heart. Jesus, symbolizing Truth, is the good seed, laying dormant in the heart of man, waiting to be resurrected on the 3rd day as Jesus was resurrected in the earth on the 3rd day. In the year 2000 we entered the beginning of the 3rd day the beginning of the 3rd thousandth year since the good seed was cut off.

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

No man has seen God. God is Spirit. It was God's seed or word that was made flesh. Jesus is not God. In the orginal Greek, the words “declared him” are “made him known.” Jesus made God known by revealing God's spiritual image, which he did through a spiritual creation that requires that spiritual anointing called "christ." Jesus and Christ are not the same thing. Jesus was, and is, the spiritual seed of God. That seed became flesh, being made of a woman, born a son. Christ is the spiritual power through which Jesus completed the spiritual works of a spiritual creation as his Father completed the physical works of a physical creation through His two divine attributes of Spirit and word or Energy and seed. As spiritual fathers we have sown spiritual seed in that spiritual womb called the heart, symbolized by Jerusalem, “the mother of us all.”  There are two fathers, two spirits, and two seeds. Seed that has been sown through a holy spirit is attributed to christ. Seed that has been sown through an unholy spirit is attributed to antichrist.

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

If you say Jesus is God you are making them one, denying the Father and the Son. In denying the Son you are rejecting the works, as the son and works are one. In rejecting the spiritual works you are against the spiritual power through which the works are manifested, preventing your own spiritual creation. You are antichrist; against the anointing through which your new heaven and earth comes into being.

“Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God. If I do not the works believe me not…”  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works…” John 10:36,37

The son is synonymous with the works. Jesus was not about ego. He does not care if we believe in him, the man. He wants us to believe the works, the word “believe” meaning “to put action to.” We have six metaphorical days of spiritual works to complete through that spiritual anointing called “christ.” Denying that Jesus is the Christ is denying the spiritual works that Jesus finished, and left instruction for us to finish through that spiritual healing power called "christ." Jesus was the first to finish these works— the first to form a new spiritual creation through the power of that spiritual anointing called "christ," which is why he was called "The Christ."

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth..." Revelation 21:1

A new heaven symbolizes a new mind and a new earth symbolizes a new heart.
