Biblical Proof that there is no Trinity
I can’t make a person believe anything, but I can show them what the Scriptures teach, they then have to choose for themselves what they want to believe: the Scriptures or their religious leaders. While there are dozens of Old Testament verses I could use to show that there is only one God, and God is one, I will show you mostly from the New Testament so Christian who reject the Old Testament may believe, and much of what I will offer as evidence is Jesus’ own words. If you can’t believe Jesus, who can you believe? And here’s why we must believe Jesus;
Deuteronomy 18:18-19,(Yahoveh said) “I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.” Acts 3:22, Acts 7:37 and Revelation 22:8-9 all confirm that Jesus (Yahshua) was the Prophet Yahoveh said he would raise up in Deuteronomy 18-18-19.
Acts 3:22, “For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘Yahoveh your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you.”
Acts 7:37, “This is that Moses who said to the children of Israel, ‘Yahoveh your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear.’”
Revelation 22:8-9, “Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.” (Jesus was the angel to show John all things. Revelation 1:1 – ‘angel’ in the Greek means messenger)
9 Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” (We know that John wasn’t worshiping an angelic angel, for no angelic angel could say; “I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book" (The Jews were the only peoples who were keeping the words of 'this Book', the Torah, so the one whom John attempted to worship had to be a Jew. It was Jesus). But Jesus said, don't worship me, worship God.
I shared with you what Yahoveh said in Deuteronomy 18:18-19, and how the disciples confirmed that Moses (or really Yahoveh) was writing about Jesus. That’s important, because now we know that whatever Jesus said, he said with Yahoveh’s words and Yahoveh’s authority, so we must never question anything he said.
Jesus also confirmed that Deuteronomy 18:18-19 was speaking about him, he said, John 14:10b, “The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.” Also John 12:49.
JESUS SPOKE YAHOVEH'S WORDS, WHAT DID HE SAY TO US?
So what was it that Jesus said, using Yahoveh’s Words with Yahoveh’s authority that we must accept without question?
Matthew 4:10, “Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship Yahoveh your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” We are to serve and worship Yahoveh God only. To worship anyone else is a sin.
Mark 12:29, “Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, Yahoveh our God, Yahoveh is one.” Jesus says there is one God, Yahoveh, and Yahoveh is one, not three. When Jesus said this, he was speaking in complete harmony with the First Commandment, which confirms there is one God, God is one and God is Yahoveh; The First Commandment reads, Exodus 20:2-3, “I am Yahoveh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other gods before Me.” This is clear and simple, written by Yahoveh God with His finger into stone, to endure forever. Yahoveh says there is not trinity.
John 4:22-23, (Jesus speaking) “You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” With the personal pronoun ‘we’ Jesus identified himself as one of the Jews who worships Yahoveh, the Father.
Jesus worships Yahoveh, his God and Father. John 20:17, “Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to my God and your God.’ ” Jesus said his God and Father is the same God and Father of his brethren.
John 17:3, (Jesus said while praying to His Father and God), “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” Jesus says the Father is the only true God and to know that, and to know that Jesus is the messiah, is to have eternal life. And here Trinity believing Christians miss out.
John 13:3, “Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God.” John didn’t think that Jesus was God, but came from God and returned to God.
John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.” Jesus didn’t consider himself to be God, but identified God as some other being.
Matthew 19:17, Mark 10:18, Luke 18:19, “So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” Jesus is clearly denying that he is God. ‘Good’ here likely means ‘perfect’, Jesus is saying, I’m not perfect, but there is one perfect and that's God.
Paul wrote; 1Corinthians 8:6, “yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” Paul agrees, one God, the Father.”
Ephesians 4:5-6, “one Lord (Jesus), one faith, one baptism; one God and Father (Yahoveh) of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Paul knows God Our Father is one.
Ephesians 1:17a, “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, ...” Jesus said he had a ‘Father and a God’, and Paul agrees with him.
Ephesians 5:20, “giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Ephesians 6:23, “Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 1:2, “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
While God may have given Jesus some divine attributes, is not ‘God’. A God doesn’t have a God or a Father. By the testimony of Jesus, Paul, each Gospel, and the Old Testament, there is one God and God is one. Yahoveh is God, Our Father. Jesus tells us that he is not God and we are to worship Yahoveh alone. To worship Jesus is to dishonor Jesus by disobeying him, and to dishonor God by breaking His First Commandment. According to the Scriptures there is no Trinity.
John 14:28b, (Jesus said) “… I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.” Jesus said he is not equal to the Father as the Trinity Doctrine states. The Trinitarian Doctrine says the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all co-equal and co-eternal. But the Trinity doctrine fails on both accounts; according to Jesus the Father is greater than he is, and Jesus said that he was begotten by the Father, and the Father said He begotten Jesus as His son, meaning that he, (Jesus) is not co-eternal, or co-equal with the Father.
Who do you believe, Jesus or the Churches’ Trinitarian Doctrines? Jesus said he is to be our only teacher, and by his words we will be judged.
The Doctrine of the Trinity was an invention of the Catholic Church in the 4th century, and to this day is consider the central core belief of the Roman Catholic Church - the Great Whore of the Book of the Revelation. The Great Whore's daughters, the Protestant churches then carried on that unbiblical doctrine, teaching it and preaching it to this day. The Trinity Doctrine was intended to exult Jesus to Godhood. However doing that violated many Scriptures including the First Commandment and the teaching we need to embrace for eternal life (John 17:3). Is this the work of the Beast?
Who is the Beast?
Satan is called a beast in Genesis 3, as he appears there in the form of a venomous serpent. His poisonous venom is his ‘lawless’ teaching, by which caused Adam and Eve to forsake God’s command, and ultimately causing them to die. That’s the same beast we read about in the Book of the Revelation. The word for ‘beast’ in the book of Revelation literally means 'venomous serpent'. We read in the Book of the Revelation those with the ‘Mark of the Beast’ end up in the fiery furnace (Revelation 13:8, 14:9-10, 20:15), just as those in Matthew 13:41-42 who are ‘lawless’ end up in a fiery furnace. They are also the same 'lawless' one in Matthew 7:13-23, the 'many' who walked the 'Broad and wide' path, but at the Judgment were call 'those who practice lawlessness'. Those who receive Satan’s (the Beast) lawless venom, live lawlessly, and that’s the Mark of the Beast. Obedience to God, as our Supreme authority, is an act of worship, and obedience to the Beast as our supreme authority is an act of worship. Those who practice lawlessness have the Mark of the Beast and are ‘worshiping the Beast’ whether they know it or not. To worship the Trinity is to reject the First Commandment and that makes a person ‘lawless’, and they worship the beast, whether they know it or not.
The ‘Lawless’ with be cast into hell (unless they repent). ‘Lawlessness’ doesn’t mean that a person is completely evil, ‘lawlessness’ means that they reject, or refuse to keep, one or more of God’s laws. They may keep all the rest of God’s laws, but by rejecting even one, they are saying ‘no’ to God, rejecting His supreme authority, despising His word and are in rebellion against Him. People who reject one or more of God’s laws are accepting a lawless authority which they put above God’s authority. That ‘lawless’ authority is then their supreme authority, instead of God’s authority, and to obey that lawless authority is an act of worship – that is to worship the Beast. Jesus told us to ‘live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’ (Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4), and to keep every ‘jot and tittle’ of the ‘law and prophets’ until ‘heaven and earth pass away’. If God is your supreme authority you will obey Him. If you haven't in the past, it's not too late. (For more on hell set the page, "Is hell forever?")
Who is it that is perpetuating the ‘Beast’s lie’ of lawlessness? Revelation 14:1-4, “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. 3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.”
We read that the 144,000 (literal or symbolic) had the Father’s name Yahoveh written on their foreheads. The Greek really says ‘in their foreheads (brain)’. It was not the name ‘Jesus’, not ‘Trinity’, but the name of the Father ‘Yahoveh’. The 144,000 represent those who were ‘redeemed’ from the earth. Verse 4 says it was those, “who were not defiled with women”. A ‘woman’ in the book of Revelation represents a church or religious institution. There are a number of examples, there is the great whore (the Roman Catholic Church) there is her daughters (the Protestant churches) and there is the bride of Christ in white (the true believers). So the ‘redeemed’ ‘were not defiled with women’. That is to say that the redeemed were not defiled by the churches’ faulty doctrines, like the doctrine of the Trinity, or doctrine of grace that says we are free from God’s law, so we can be lawless and still be saved. But, instead they followed the Lamb wherever he goes. That is, they follow Jesus’ teachings and instructions instead of church's false doctrines, regardless of where it takes them.
Who in the church is preaching and teaching lawlessness? Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.“ Who comes in ‘sheep’s clothing’? The Shepherd, they wore sheep’s wool to better fit in with the sheep. The shepherds today are the religious pastors, and false prophets. How can you tell if a prophet is false? False prophets don’t preach the law, don’t point out people iniquities, and don’t teach people to worship Yahoveh alone. False prophets are telling people that you can reject God's law and still be saved by grace, and the false prophet tells them that they are to worship the Trinity, instead of Yahoveh alone, as both the First Commandment and Jesus require (Matthew 4:10, Mark 12:28-29).
The results of the teaching of the false prophets is lawlessness. Matthew 7:21-23, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The false prophets (pastors) caused people to be ‘lawless’. Telling people that they don’t need to keep God’s law, saying that it was 'crucified with Christ', 'nailed to the cross', 'Old Covenant', 'Jesus’ fulfilled it', 'freed us from that bondage and condemnation', etc. People are told that Jesus suffered, atoned and died for our sins, past, present and future – so we won’t have to, we just have to believe. Believe what you ask? They will say, 'believe that Jesus was God who died for your sin and rose from the dead.' So the people are deceived and don’t even try to keep God’s law – they see no need to, and are told that if they try to keep God's law, they are turning their backs on God's grace. And if Jesus was God, they reason, he can do away with God's law. He can eliminate the need to keep God's law. He can do away with the Sabbath, and the kosher food requirements. People are told that Jesus will make sure they get into heaven, in spite of their sins, if they just believe. So the teaching of the Trinity, leads to lawlessness. Generally speaking, those that believe in the Trinity, reject the Sabbath and reject God's feast days, and reject God's dietary restrictions. In other words they are lawless.
Those who obey what Jesus told them, worship Yahoveh alone, and keep the Old Testament 'law and prophets'. They are those who keep Sabbath, adhere to God's dietary laws and keep God's feast Days.
Please adhere to Jesus' teachings, that means you must; reject the Trinity, worship Yahoveh alone, and keep the Old Testament 'law and prophets'. And I urge you to do it before you come to the Judgment Seat...
