    Hi WJ,
    So WJ the Father is not the true God??
    Interesting.


    So you don't notice the Father as the true everlasting, God?

    Ephesians 1:17

    17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit.

    The Father is God. He pours out his Spirit upon mankind.

    The pouring out of the Spirit

    Acts 2:17

    17 ” 'In the last days, God says,
         I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
      Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
         your young men will see visions,
         your old men will dream dreams.

    Blessings :)

    Mandy  I am not a newbie. And I do not and ever will believe again in the trinity. I have explained before how I see Jesus as God. He is the Son of God the firstborn of all creation. I see God as a Family name. In Corinth. 15 when Jesus will give the Kingdom back to the Father we are also Gods. We are the Family of God, and I am proud to be a member of that Family. It is sad that nobody recognized me.
    I thought maybe my bad English would give me away, but that did not either. Any guesses who I am?

    Please do not think nobody recognized you. You say that nobody recognized you. I recognized you if that counts for something.

    3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

    John 5:18

    18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.

    *They are equal but two seperate personages.

    The pharasees thought he made himself equal with God. Jesus never made such a claim. Jesus repeatedly said the Father was greater then He. The pharasees accusations are not something to base doctrine on.

    Here are verses…

    Ephesians 1:18-23

    18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

    Yeah like Joseph and the Pharaoh.

    Joseph had all authority in that kingdom, but not over the Pharaoh himself.

    Rev 22:1
    And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    I await your answer!

    :O


    There are so many viewpoints being expressed that it is difficult to keep up with who believes what.

    Regardless, in answer to the question: What attributes does the Father have that the son doesn't?

    (1) Jesus does not share the attribute of being the God and Father of Jesus with his God and Father.

    Ron

    Try again.

    Those are not attributes of God.

    And none of them deal with the nature of the Father and Yeshua and the Holy Spirit!

    The things you quote are with the premise that Jesus is not deity, and in no way prove he is not.

    None of the things you mention deal with
    Jn 1:14, Jn 20:28, Phil 2:6-8, 1 Tim 3:16, Titus 2:13, Heb 1:8, 1 Jn 5:20

    And they sure dont answer these questions…

    So will we dwell in one another?

    Will we fill all things?

    Will we uphold all things by the word of our power?

    Will all things be through us and for us?

    Will we sit in The throne with the Father and the Son being worshipped and praised with the Spirit proceeding from us (not through us) to all of creation?

    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and *his servants shall serve him*:

    Only God has these attributes!

    Thats just to start. I am a little tired tonight but will address you post point by point later.

    Welcome and blessings! :)

    Hi Is 1.18,
    You ask

    Where is the verse that states the Father alone is the Most High God? Where is the verse that states Jesus isn't?”

    Lots of things are not recorded in scripture.
    Moses is not said to be not God
    and
    neither is Peter said to be not Paul.
    But it does not need to be said that a son is not his own father.

    It is not our desire to use non existant scriptires to prove doctrine. Using amgigous scriptures and non scriptural terms is the realm of the Trinitarian.

    Here is a verse…

    John 20:17

    17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' “

    History tells us what early Christians believed Jesus to be in relationship to the Father. The earliest records only give us three options. No evidence is found for another view until at least 200 years later. Then we begin to see theology at work as other models begin to emerge or existing models begin to evolve.

    Option 1: (Firstborn, proto-trinity model)

    They said he was an emanation, the first spirit born of God. They believed the Father was actually Father/Mother and did not have an actual gender and God begot him in the descent past.

    Option 2: (docetic model)

    They believed he was man. Who was anointed at baptism and the first spirit descended into him and basically possessed him. Two beings in one body. One the human Jesus and the other the christos spirit.

    Option 3: (human model)

    They believed he was man. Some say virgin born and some the son of Joseph. The messiah and a prophet who was completely human but anointed with power from God.

    The 1st option is the option that fits closest to what we see the New Testament to be saying. The Trinity (as believed today) does not fit the historic evidence or the scriptures as nicely as the above option number 1, the proto-trinitarian view.

    This is also the view held within the essene community of the Messiah. Which Jesus was an essene Messiah. The Pharisee expectation was a warrior the essenes expectation was a prophet of peace and healing.

    This view is also the view found in the book of enoch which was an very important essene text and is even quoted directly in Jude vs. 14.

    The evidence is very strong. Research it.
