Isaiah 28:7-13 — Understanding who God is requires diligent study, He cannot be figured out by merely one description

7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
their reluctance to learn
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
and their false security
(KJV)

7 And even these through wine have erred, And through strong drink have wandered, Priest and prophet erred through strong drink, They have been swallowed up of the wine, They wandered because of the strong drink, They have erred in seeing, They have stumbled judicially.
8 For all tables have been full of vomit, Filth--without place!
their reluctance to learn
9 By whom doth He teach knowledge? And by whom doth He cause to understand the report? The weaned from milk, the removed from breasts,
10 For rule is on rule, rule on rule, line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there,
11 For by scorned lip, and by another tongue, Doth He speak unto this people.
12 Unto whom He hath said, `This is the rest, give ye rest to the weary, And this--the refreshing:' And they have not been willing to hear,
13 And to whom a word of Jehovah hath been, Rule on rule, rule on rule, line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there, So that they go and have stumbled backward, And been broken, and snared, and captured.

Luke 13:32 — Christ, Himself, acknowledges that He is not YET Perfect, or made Complete, which means that He has NOT yet received His Father's Holy Spirit, which He later poured out on to the Apostles at the Day of Pentecost (See Isaiah 42:18-21; Hebrews 5:8; Jude 9; Revelation 12:7 )

32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. (KJV)

28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.   (KJV)

1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (KJV)

1 These things spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to the heaven, and said-- `Father, the hour hath come, glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee,
2 according as Thou didst give to him authority over all flesh, that--all that Thou hast given to him--he may give to them life age-during;
3 and this is the life age-during, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and him whom Thou didst send--Jesus Christ;

John 20:11-17 — When Mary recognizes Christ, He tells her that He has to ascend to His God and our God, thus Christ is not God, He has A God, there is only ONE God, BUT, He IS the Divine SON of God (See Ephesians 1:3; Revelation 3:12 )

11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (KJV)

11 and Mary was standing near the tomb, weeping without; as she was weeping, then, she stooped down to the tomb, and beholdeth two messengers in white, sitting,
12 one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid.
13 And they say to her, `Woman, why dost thou weep?' she saith to them, `Because they took away my Lord, and I have not known where they laid him;'

1 Timothy 6:14-16 — This verse tells us WHO is the ONLY King of Kings & Lord of Lords (see Deuteronomy 6:4,5; Psalms 24:1-10; Proverbs 8:22-26; Ecclesiastes 3:11; Micah 5:2; Zechariah 6:13; Mark 12:28-30; John1:18; John 3:16; Colossians 1:15; 1Timothy 1:17; Revelation 1:5 )

14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen. (KJV)

14 that thou keep the command unspotted, unblameable, till the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 which in His own times He shall shew--the blessed and only potentate, the King of the kings and Lord of the lords,
16 who only is having immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable, whom no one of men did see, nor is able to see, to whom is honour and might age-during! Amen. (YLT)

 

2 Timothy 2:19 — God and Christ know those that belong to Them, it is because of Choices that are MADE by the individual (See Acts 15:18; Romans 9:17-21 )

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.  (KJV)

19 sure, nevertheless, hath the foundation of God stood, having this seal, `The Lord hath known those who are His,' and `Let him depart from unrighteousness--every one who is naming the name of Christ.'  (YLT)

Hebrews 1:4, 5 — The angels being created beings cannot approach the stature of Christ, a birthed Son, who Himself is NOT equal to the Father God

4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? (KJV)

4 having become so much better than the messengers, as he did inherit a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the messengers said He ever, `My Son thou art--I to-day have begotten thee?' and again, `I will be to him for a father, and he shall be to Me for a son?' (YLT)

 

Hebrews 4:4-6 — God's rest comes after we have reached Completion or Fullness just before the End of the World (see Genesis.2:2; Psalms 95:11 )

4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: (KJV)

4 for He spake in a certain place concerning the seventh day thus: `And God did rest in the seventh day from all His works;'
5 and in this place again, `If they shall enter into My rest--;'
6 since then, it remaineth for certain to enter into it, and those who did first hear good news entered not in because of unbelief- (YLT)

 

Hebrews 4:15,16 — While Christ was tempted on ALL points like us, He did not submit to it & Coming BOLDLY before His throne is the key word, otherwise we are scared of God and our iniquity will still be there and we will NOT survive that encounter at His Coming

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
(KJV)

15 for we have not a chief priest unable to sympathise with our infirmities, but one tempted in all things in like manner--apart from sin;
16 we may come near, then, with freedom, to the throne of the grace, that we may receive kindness, and find grace--for seasonable help.
(YLT)

 

Hebrews 5:8-9 — This text verifies that Christ was the Son of God and that He was not yet perfected, until His experience at the Cross (see Isaiah 42:18-21; Isaiah 45:7; Luke 13:32; Jude 9; Revelation 12:7 )

8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
(KJV)

8 through being a Son, did learn by the things which he suffered--the obedience,
9 and having been made perfect, he did become to all those obeying him a cause of salvation age-during, (YLT)

 

Hebrews 7:12 — A human priest must sacrifice for his own sins before he does for others. Christ being sinless does not. New Priest = New Law

12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. (KJV)

12 for the priesthood being changed, of necessity also, of the law a change doth come, (YLT)

 

Hebrews 9:13-17 — A covenant or will is of no value while the testator is alive - it was by His death that the Second Covenant takes force

13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
fulfill the promise of the new covenant
15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. (KJV)

13 for if the blood of bulls, and goats, and ashes of an heifer, sprinkling those defiled, doth sanctify to the purifying of the flesh,
14 how much more shall the blood of the Christ (who through the age-during Spirit did offer himself unblemished to God ) purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
fulfill the promise of the new covenant
15 And because of this, of a new covenant he is mediator, that, death having come, for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those called may receive the promise of the age-during inheritance,
16 for where a covenant is, the death of the covenant-victim to come in is necessary,
17 for a covenant over dead victims is stedfast, since it is no force at all when the covenant-victim liveth, (YLT)

 

Hebrews 11:6 — Coming to God requires knowing Him and Who He is (not a trinity )

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (KJV)

6 and apart from faith it is impossible to please well, for it behoveth him who is coming to God to believe that He is, and to those seeking Him He becometh a rewarder. (YLT)

 

James 1:13 — God cannot be tempted to do evil - Nor will He tempt anyone

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man:  (KJV)

13 Let no one say, being tempted--`From God I am tempted,' for God is not tempted of evil, and Himself doth tempt no one, (YLT)

 

1 Peter 1: 3 — Praise to the Father God, who resurrected His Son, Jesus Christ

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (KJV)

3 Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to the abundance of His kindness did beget us again to a living hope, through the rising again of Jesus Christ out of the dead, (YLT)

 

1 Peter 3:15 — We mist come before God in Meekness and Humility

15 and the Lord God sanctify in your hearts. And be ready always for defence to every one who is asking of you an account concerning the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;  (YLT)

 

2 Peter 1:2-4:An explanation of Divinity, which shows that even though being Divine, Jesus Christ did NOT have the understanding of His Father

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (KJV)

2 Grace to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgement of God and of Jesus our Lord!
3 As all things to us His divine power (the things pertaining unto life and piety ) hath given, through the acknowledgement of him who did call us through glory and worthiness,
4 through which to us the most great and precious promises have been given, that through these ye may become partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world in desires. (YLT)

1 John 1:5 — God IS Light - There can be no darkness where there is His Light

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (KJV)

5 And this is the message that we have heard from Him, and announce to you, that God is light, and darkness in Him is not at all; (YLT)

 

1 John 2:22,23 Another good text for trinitarians - The basic carnal TRUTH is that the Father God did bare a Son, Jesus Christ our Lord - the denial of this relationship IS the basis of being an anti-christ (see Genesis 1:26 )

22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but ) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.   (KJV)

22 Who is the liar, except he who is denying that Jesus is the Christ? this one is the antichrist who is denying the Father and the Son;
23 every one who is denying the Son, neither hath he the Father, he who is confessing the Son hath the Father also. (YLT)

 

1 John 4:8 The first basic and foundational Truth about God is that He IS Love and Love does NOT keep a record of our sins - One cannot be a lover of God if he does not also Love God

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (KJV)

8 he who is not loving did not know God, because God is love.  1(YLT)

 

1 John 4:16 The first basic and foundational Truth about God is that He IS Love and does NOT keep a record of our sins

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (KJV)

16 and we--we have known and believed the love, that God hath in us; God is love, and he who is remaining in the love, in God he doth remain, and God in him. (YLT)

 

1 John 5:5 — There should be no question about WHO Jesus Christ is - the literal, birthed Son of God the Father -- The reality is that unless we acknowledge that Jesus Is the legitimate Son of God, no place will be found in heaven for us (see John 17:22, 23 )

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? (KJV)

5 who is he who is overcoming the world, if not he who is believing that Jesus is the Son of God?(YLT)

 

Jude 9Another description of Christ represented as Michael (See Isaiah 42:18-21; Isaiah 45:7; Luke 13:32; Revelation 12:7 )

9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. (KJV)

9 yet Michael, the chief messenger, when, with the devil contending, he was disputing about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring up an evil-speaking judgment, but said, `The Lord rebuke thee!' (YLT)

 

Revelation 1:5 — Who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords? Obviously, it cannot be Jesus Christ, since a Prince is the Son of a King (see Deuteronomy 6:4,5; Psalms 24:1-10; Proverbs 8:22-26; Ecclesiastes 3:11; Micah 5:2; Zechariah 6:13; Mark 12:28-30; John 1:18; John 3:16; Colossians 1:15; 1Timothy 1:17; 1Timothy 6:14-16 )

5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (KJV)

5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first-born out of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth; to him who did love us, and did bathe us from our sins in his blood, (YLT)

 

Revelation 3:12 — Christ has a God, He is NOT God (see John 20:11-17; Ephesians 1:3 )

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. (KJV)

12 He who is overcoming--I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and without he may not go any more, and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, that doth come down out of the heaven from my God--also my new name. (YLT)

 

Revelation 3:21 — What was it that Christ overcame? Did He possess a perfect character if He had to overcome something? Hint: Who was the God of Israel? (see Hebrews 5:8 )

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (KJV)

21 He who is overcoming--I will give to him to sit with me in my throne, as I also did overcome and did sit down with my Father in His throne (YLT)

 

Revelation 12:7 — Another description of Christ represented as Michael (See Isaiah 42:18-21; Isaiah 45:7; Luke 13:32; Jude 9 )

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, (KJV)

7 And there came war in the heaven; Michael and his messengers did war against the dragon, and the dragon did war, and his messengers, (YLT)
