"Master, will there only be a few people saved?"  (Luke 13:23)

Someone once asked the Savior, “Lord, will there only be a few people saved” to which the Messiah answered “Strive to enter at the Narrow Gate, for many I tell you will seek to enter and will not be able to" (Luke 13:23-24).... 

"Many will say to Me on that day, ' Lord, Lord,...and then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me you who practice LAWLESSNESS" (Matt 7:22-23)  - read more

The Heavenly Father's Name

Exo 3:15  Elohim, furthermore, said to Moses, "Yahuweh, ....' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.

Did you know that the Heavenly Father put His Name in His book, the Bible, over 6,823 times? Why is it than that most people that read the Bible, Jew and Christian alike, never heard of the Almighty's Name? Is it important that you know the heavenly Fathe's Name?

Did you know that the name 'Jesus' doesn't appear in the 1611 KJV Bible, not one single time!

Of course I'm not referring to the King James Bible used today, which is roughly the 25th revision of the original 1611 version. I'm referring to the original 1611 KJV.The name Jesus IS NOT in there one single time. Why? Read on to find the answer.

Are you aware that the letter “J” did not exist in any language on the face of the  earth until the year 1520 A.D, and it did not come into popular use for roughly another 100 years. Consequently when the 1611 KJV was written the letter 'J' did not appear in it, not one single time.. Let me repeat that, “the original 1611 King James Bible does not contain the letter 'J' not even one time. If the letter 'J' didn't exist until the year 1520, and was never used in the 1611 King James Bible, than how could the Messiah's name have been pronounce “Jesus”? The answer is “it wasn't”. The One who died for the sins of Israel was never called by the name 'Jesus', nor did he or anyone else in his day ever hear the name 'Jesus'. Why? Because the name 'Jesus' would not have existed for roughly another 1,500 years. With that being the case then what name was Peter talking about when he said

Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved

If the name 'Jesus' did not exist when Peter made this statement then what is the name by which we must be saved? For the answer as to what name it is that we must call on to be saved  click here.

"I said YOU are gods"  John 10:34

Who are these "gods" that the Messiah is referring to?

When the Jews accused the Messiah of claiming to be God he quoted Psalm 82:6 and asked the question "If He, that is the Heavenly Father Yahuweh, called them, that is the judges of Israel, gods then why do you accuse me of blasphemy for saying that I am the Son of God?"

Most Christians are unaware of the fact that along with the judges of Israel being called 'gods' the angels, Moses, and Samuel the prophet are also referred to as 'gods' in the Bible. How is that possible when Yahuweh Himself tells us that "there is no God but Me" (Isaiah 43:10)?   "click here"  to find out the answer to this very important question.

        The Trinity  -  Really?

 

With billions of Christians believing in a Triune god, that is a 3 in 1 god known as the  "Trinity" one would think that the Trinity is talked about throughout the entire Bible, and yet the fact is that such terms as "the Trinity", 'god the Son', 'god the Holy Spirit' or the 1st and 2nd persons of anything, are never mentioned in the Bible, not one single time. Why is that? Click here for the answer.

What 'must' we believe about the Messiah !

Please turn in your Bble to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. 
 Can't  find it?  How about the passage that tells us that the Messiah is the 2nd person of the Triune godhead?  You say that's not there either?  How about the passage that calls Messiah "god the son". No, again that term is never found in the Bible. Surely the word "Trinity" is on every page of the Bible. What's that, the word "Trinity" is never mentioned in the Bible! How is that possible?  The fact is you're not going to find any of those phrases ever mentioned in the Bible and yet such terms are used by a majority of Christianity today.

If such terms as god/man, god the son. or the 2nd person of the Triune godhead or Trinity are never mentioned in the Bible then what exactly are we told to believe about the Messiah Yahoshua? In this article we'll be taking a look at everything the Bible tells us about the Messiah and what it is we MUST believe about Him in order to be saved.  To view the article "click here".  

 

- 1 John 5:7

Although the 3 in 1 elohim (G-d), or Trinity, is never mentioned in the Scriptures, there are two passages that are often times used to promote such a doctrine. 1 John 5:7, which we'll take a look at now, and Matt 28:19, which we'll look at in another study.

We've already took at look passages such as John 10:30, "I and My Father are one";  Jn 8:58, "Before Abraham was, I am,"  Gen 1:26,  "Let us make man in OUR image,"  and others, in previous articles.  At which time it was brought out, quite clearly, that these verses WERE NOT, in any way, referring to a 3 in 1 G-d, or Trinity.  Please refer to the website for those articles.

In this article we're going to look at what is probably the most celebrated, so-called, Trinitarian passage, in the entire Bible,
1 John 5:7, For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Many of you that are reading this now and following along in your bibles, if your not reading from a King James Version or a Catholic version, you’re probably puzzled as to why this passage, as I quoted it above, IS  NOT found in your Bibles.  The reason is because this passage with the additional words,
'the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one,'
are NOT found in ANY OTHER translation of the bible, other then the King James Version, and the Catholic Versions.  

1Jo 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven,
That’s how 1 John 5:7 reads in the King James Version of the Bible  and the Catholic,  Douay - Rheims Version, which are quite possibly the only two translations today with that contain the phrase "the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. "

For just about  all, if not all,  other translations leave out the celebrated "Trinitarian" passage, ‘the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost.’   To name just a few of the many translations in which it is omitted:
New American Standard (NASV),
New International Version (NIV),
Revised Standard Version (RSV)
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
New King James Version (NKJ)
Modern King James Version (although the MKJV left the phrase in the text, they put in initialized letters to show that it was added)
Living Bible (LB)
New Century Version (NC)
American Standard Version (ASV)
Bible in Basic English (BBE)
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
International Standard Version (ISV)
Literal translation of the Bible (LITV)
And of course the list can go on and on.

The question should be, why do just about all translations, other then the KJV and Catholic Version leave out ‘‘bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost’ from verse 7 of 1 John?   

The reason it's omitted in just about every other translations is due to the fact that it is NOT found in any Greek Manuscripts, earlier then the 15th Century.  That means this passage, 1 John 5:7, with the words,  'the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one,' are not contained in any Manuscript until approximately, 1,400 years  after the death of the Apostle John, who, of course, wrote  the epistle of 1 John.   

The  FACT that these 'ADDED' words to the Epistle of 1 John, where NOT written by the Apostle John, is something that almost,  if not all, Biblical Scholars agree on.  Because there isn't a Greek Manuscript in existence with this passage before the 15th Century.  

I've never heard of anyone that would argue the fact, that since the Apostle John, who had been dead for almost 1,400 years, prior to these words being ADDED to his text, suggest that John could have somehow have written them.  

The  Bible Scholar, Dr. C. I. Scofield, of the renown Scofield Reference Bible, adds this footnote to verse 7 of 1 John;  "It is generally agreed that this verse has no ms. (manuscript) authority and has been inserted."
"...no manuscript authority" means that it is NOT supported by ANY manuscripts.  It wasn't until the 15th century, that this verse was inserted into the text.

Dr. Edgar J. Goodspeed, the Bible translator, comments on 1 Jn 5:7;   "This verse ...does not appear in any Greek manuscript of 1 John before the fifteenth century, when one cursive has it;  one from the sixteenth also contains the reading.  These are the only Greek manuscripts of the New Testament in which it has ever been found.   But it occurs in no ancient Greek manuscript or Greek Christian writer or in any of the oriental versions...It is universally discredited by Greek scholars and editors of the Greek text of the New Testament."     end of quote

Regarding this  addition to 1 John, the textual critic F. H. A. Scrivener wrote:  "We need not hesitate to declare our conviction that the disputed words were not written by St. John:  that they were originally brought into Latin copies in Africa from the margin, where they had been placed as a pious and orthodox gloss on ver. 8:  that from the Latin they crept into two or three late Greek codices, and thence in the printed Greek text, a place to which they had no rightful claim.

The Catholic Church, who includes this passage in the text of their various translations, readily admits that this verse was added many years later.  In an article entitled:

  

The following was taken from a Catholic publication entitled "The "Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma":  
The Tri-personality and the unity of essence in G-d is most perfectly expressed in the so-called Comma Ioanneum 1 John 5:7 el seq.: "And they are Three who give testimony (in Heaven; the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost.  And these Three are one.  And there are three that give testimony on earth.)"  The genuineness of the words in parenthesizes, however, is subject to the gravest doubts as they are missing in all the Greek biblical manuscripts up to the 15 century,  in all the Oriental translations, also in the oldest and best Vulgate manuscripts, and are not used by the Greek and Latin Fathers in the great Trinitarian controversies of the 4th and 5th centuries.  The   passage is first found in the writings of the a Spanish heretic Priscillian though in a heretical form. As they have been adopted in the official Vulgate edition, and have been used by the Church for centuries, they may be regarded as an expression of the Church's teaching.  Further, they enjoy a status as a testimony of Tradition.  Even if the passage be not a genuine constituent part of the Vulgate, it is nevertheless authentic, that is free from error dogmatically.  End of excerpt.

So we see that the Catholic church readily admits that the celebrated phrase "the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost" we're not written by the apostle John.  I imagine if you happen to be a Catholic and hold to the idea that 'tradition' has as much authority as the written Word then I suppose it wouldn't matter to you that the apostle John had nothing to do with these additional words being added. 

We see than that without question this celebrated passage,  found only in the King James Version and the Catholic Versions, was not written by the Apostle John,  thus all other translation, rightfully so,  did not include it in their translation.   

Again we see that the words of the Savior, Yahshua the Messiah, are true, in that His Father and ours, Yahweh is the “ONLY True Elohim (G-d)”  (John 17:3 , John 20:17).  And NOT the 2 in 1,  3 in 1 g-d, or ‘oneness’ g-d,  of so many today.

Only the Truth can set us free, no one has ever been set free by believing a lie. And the truth is, “the Father, Yahweh, is the Only True Elohim (G-d). And as the Savior tells is "this is a matter of Eternal Life" (John 17:3).
