Questions from Brother Bramwel S. Chandrakumar
- Personal fellowship with God and His Son Jesus through Holy Spirit…
Jesus has defined God for us in scripture: Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. If we then know God is a Spirit, because God cannot lie (Tit.1:2 who is also our Saviour seen in the latter verses!), and Jesus is the manifestation of God in the flesh according to the word of God, seen in 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (1 Cor.6:11, we must be justified in our flesh if we want to be one with God in Christ Jesus, reconciled unto God by Jesus seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21!), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. The only glory that God said He would not share with another as in Is.42:8 and 48:11, the same glory we see in the face of Jesus Christ in 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. This Glory even Jesus has shown us Himself in scripture, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? And also who the one leper came back to give glory to God at the very feet of Jesus, Lk.17:18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. If anyone would have known who Jesus was they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory, 1 Cor.2:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
For there to be a clear understanding of the Godhead and the nature of God, we have to understand God in the way the Jews understand God, because we are to be grafted into that vine, just as Jesus has told us in Jn.15:1-ffs there. We are the bride of Christ and therefore we must be without spot, wrinkle, and to be seen as without blemish, Eph.5:27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. We do that by a clear understanding of who Jesus is, in order for us to be able to worship the One true God of the Jews we are to be grafted into the one flock (Jn.10:1-ffs), otherwise we are not worshipping in Spirit and in Truth of the scriptures, and we then will be worshipping a god of our own imaginations, as seen in the trinity theory or hypothesis. Which was made or though up by others, other than the apostles and brought up a great deal of time after the last Apostle, which was St. John, who died, around A.D. 100.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity and also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tertullian, which was thought up and put into practice by the Roman Catholic (meaning Universal) Church which was trying to incorporate the mythologies of the Greek, Socrates, Plato, Stoic, Aristotle, Origen, and even pagan beliefs as well and incorporate this whole mess into a meta-philosophical, arrangement of how to describe and understand scriptures with their points of view which can never work, for a Jew or for a true Christian of Jesus Christ the One True God as seen in 1 Jn.5:20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life! Which is tied directly to the terminologies of the Jews who only know one God, the I Am, the Jehovah, or Yahweh! When a child in the Jewish community is given a name by his parents, that child literally takes on the manifestation of that name in: In their understanding of that name and what that name is meaning. Jesus said I come in my Father’s name, Jn.5:43; Jesus’ name is the Greek version of Joshua, this name means Yahweh or Jehovah is Saviour or Redeemer. This was fulfilled in Jesus, therefore Jesus has told us when we see Him we see the One who sent Him, Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. Jesus is the manifestation of the One True God who is a Spirit seen in Jn.4:24, who is Holy, and who they of heaven are around the throne room say is Holy, holy, holy God Almighty, Rv.4:8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. Which was, and is, and is to come, who is Jesus, who is the First and the Last the one true God, Is.48:12, Rv.1:8, and 12! This is why the Jews always wanted to stone Jesus because they though Jesus beings He was a man made Himself out to be God, they did not understand God became flesh and dwelt among them as seen in scripture, Mt.1:23, as was foretold by their own prophets, Is.7:14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Who is and has all the government laid upon His shoulders for forevermore, as required in scripture, Gen.49:8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. Which we see in Revelation, Rv.1:14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; it doesn’t matter where we are at in the Holy Bible; it comes down to this one simple theology: That God created the Universe, and sin entered into it by Adam. God knew before He said one “let there be” that He would have to come and bring salvation to His creation, that He brought into existence with the breath of His mouth, but beings God is the Holy Spirit, had no blood to give for the sacrifice, to shed for the covering of sin, Heb.9:22And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. This blood God first used was from the skins He used to cover Adam and Eve with, when He made them robes, Gen.3:21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (כֻּתֹּ֫נֶת, kethoneth or kuttoneth: a tunic, a piece of clothing that covers to the wrists and goes down to the feet.) This is how God covered man, not as man did with aprons! This is how we are to be clothed today as well, because God changes not, Mal.3:6. This is the modesty God is looking for in us as well.
The “Us” and “We” in the scriptures that the Trinitarians love to use as evidence to substantiate their doctrines is on this account; which is to be shown to you by the Holy Spirit, who will lead you into all truths. If we look at creation and how it came to pass God always made something before it was going to be needed by something else, thus He made the earth and the heavens, before man and the animals were formed or created, so in this logic God made the Heavenly Host before they were to serve mankind and to serve and function as God’s messengers and our protectors and instructors, by which the scriptures were given to us (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardian_angel). Beings God knows the end from the beginning and how things were going to turn out from before He said one word in creation, He too knew He would not have a union with a machine or a servant who was predestined to conform to everything, that is, He would have no union with creation without it being in Love with Him and glorifying Him Alone, He is a Jealous God! (Beings God is LOVE, 1 Jn.4:1-ffs!) So in order for God to create man in His image God had to give man the ability to either Love Him or to hate Him, and I want you to notice here the word for hate is used in the since God uses it and in the original language is by what we always must use for our translations by which they were originally meant to understand the words in. Hate in this case only means to like less, than the other. Not as despise that is another word all together used for those cases. This is how freewill was created, in order for us to love God we had to be given an option to either accept Him as Creator or to deny Him and walk as gods ourselves; as seen in the Mythologies and Paganologies even this Trinity worshipping three Gods in one God, which is consubstantiation which is and are contradictions in terms and terminologies which is an oxymoron in themselves, when broken down in their root forms (with any word starting off with tow pre fixes!) of understandings when trying describe our God, according to Jewish Doctrine and Theologies; which must be used in terms related to their God who we are to be grafted into or we are in fact worshipping another god all together, which the world worships, which is idolatry, 1 Jn.5:21, the god who allows sin in your lives!
When God said let us make man in our image, and they have become as one of us; this is referring to the knowledge of good and evil, which all the angels that were present and in attendance with our God while serving Him. Not that there was with another God being present with Him as supposed by the Trinitarians, which contradict the scriptures. If we have a doctrine and it will not allow us to translate our understanding of God and His being, His nature, and His characteristics correctly as called out in all scriptures, which are used to show us Him in them, and it will not work in them all, in clear understanding; then we have the wrong interpretations of them. All scripture shows us there is only One God and His name is One, Zec.14:9, and He alone is our God (Isaiah chapter 44 and 45 are good examples of the one God, who knows no other God besides Him only!), Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (This cannot be any other than Jesus!). From the Old Testament to the New Testament is about man coming into a relationship with his God after it was lost in Adam. The only way that can happen is if God Himself, shows mercy on His creation, and He Himself shows His grace which is His Favour on His creation and comes Himself to redeem it from its sin, with His own blood, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Jesus Himself said it best in Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41I receive not honour from men. 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? The Trinity is man’s doctrine and theology, which has no scriptural substantiation, thus that is the reason they call is Dogma, which means has no scriptural substantiations but is based on philosophical views of propositions. If you can find a flaw in one axiom of their reasoning the whole doctrine is to be thrown out; the trinity doctrine says the Father is not the son, and Jesus refuted this in scripture Himself, Jn.10:30; and Jn.14:7-ffs who is the Spirit that He will send to abide in us after he goest to be with the Father seen in Jn.14:18 as we see in Jn.16:27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: AGAIN, I leave the world, and go to the Father, Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor (The Holy Spirit, who is God with us Spiritually), The (Al)mighty God, The Everlasting Father (He who has created heaven and Earth), The Prince of Peace (The I Am who was before Abraham, who became flesh to redeem His people, and be their King of kings as promised to King David in 2 Sam.7:1-17, which was promised and prophesied by Jacob in Gen.49, which God was going to use the Tribe of Judah for this one purpose to redeem mankind and become their King of kings and LORD of lords and the only way Jesus can be a Prince of Peace (which is the only way we can have union with God is if we are at peace with Him, can two walk together unless they agree, Amos.3:3) is to be a son of a king; which traced His lineage all the way back to Adam, the prosperity of the whole human race, our father and our brother, Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. This is the fulfillment of all the law, Gal.5:14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: because Jesus our God became our Brother! Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. That is the reason many are called, in fact all the world is to receive this teachings, which are called out in scripture which is the only Truth in the History of mankind, (Jn.1:17 Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ!), and few will behave themselves according to His teachings, (Jn.14:15), this is the narrow path which we are all to walk on, not to the right hand of it or the left, in the ways of man’s teachings but according to the only word by which salvation comes, Jn.6:63, which are eternal life to those who will receive it, and few there will be, Mt.20:16; Mt.22:14, because Jesus’ words are forever, Mt.24:35!
This is how we discern Spirits (words or ideas) by how well they line up with the Teachings of our God, given to us by His grace, which is the gospel and the word of God, (Ac.20:24; and 32, Gal.1:8-9), which is His mind, and how can we have His mind unless we have His words of life living in us, 1 Cor.2:1-16! Anything that doesn’t line up with the words of God are of the antichrist and is the other gospel Paul taught about! Gal.1:7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. When we have Jesus Christ we are complete that is all we need, everything all humanity needs is fulfilled and is provided for in Christ Jesus, for He alone was given the Spirit without measure, Jn.3:34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. There is no other baptism by which all men must be saved, Ac.4:12: Because all the fullness of the Godhead was in Jesus, Col.2:1For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ (where is it mentioned about the Holy Ghost, if this is going to explain the mystery of the Godhead? It is because Paul knows they of the Jews knew that God is a Spirit and whoever was God’s was called out to be Holy for He was holy, Lev.11:44-45, thus the Holy Spirit, Ac.7:51 and see verse 59!); 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ (Who preach this Trinity doctrine of tradition of men!).
9For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: (That is why we must be baptized in His name, we are being buried to self, carnality, and lusts of this world, 1 Jn.2:15-17) 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead!The New Testament Covenant and will of God for all of us, Jn.15:20Remember the word that I said unto you,: The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 1 Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ (Was not Jesus baptized? There is even a faction out there in the world who proclaim baptism is not necessary! Jn.3:3-8, if we are not baptized in the Holy Spirit we are not only none of His yet still, Ro.8:9, but we are not in compliance to His every word, this is the first (or Original) sin that was committed the sin of disobedience to God’s words, which will make anyone at all times fall out of union with Him, Amos.3:3; Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50! To be out of the will of God on purpose or presumptuously is the unforgivable sin, in this lifetime or the next!). 2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
- How to overcome or subdue other thoughts into subjection of Chris Jesus…..
The only thing I can say about this is simply never stop thinking about Jesus and always in everything we say and do we do all for the Lord we love and worship in His name only, Col.3:17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Pray without ceasing, 1 Thes.5:1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. 12And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 14Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit. 20Despise not prophesyings. 21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 25Brethren, pray for us. 26Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. 27I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. 28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
All scripture is our lamp unto our feet and we cannot walk without being in darkness unless we walk in the light of our Lord Jesus (Jn.8:12), and from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 we are to walk in the Holy Bible’s light which are our stepping stones on which, keep us from sinking in the mud of this world’s wickedness, Jm.4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. The world’s teachings and the world’s thinking is always contrary to the will of God, that is why the world hears them of the world and they will not hear the Saints of God, 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
3. How to will souls for Jesus….etc. Jn.6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. With this said all we can do is present our testimony of what Jesus did and is doing in our lives, as well as live in the word of God as His word is living in us as we abide in Jesus as we are reconciled to God in Jesus as shown to us in 2 Cor.5:19-21 while allowing to move and direct our lives as we allow Him to walk in us as seen in 2 Cor.6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
While we obey Jesus in His scriptures (Jn.14:15), Mk.8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. As we keep to all the scriptures given to us by Jesus; Anointed Ordained Apostles, as called out in scripture Jn.15:20 and again in Ac.2:38-40 and 1 Cor.11:1-2 as we see are called out from the Lord Himself, Deu.4:2; 12:32; 5:31-33; Josh.1:7 and then picked up again by the Apostle Paul in Ro.12:1-2, as we love God as our brothers and our own lives as well, for our bodies are no longer ours, we have been purchased by the blood of God (Ac.20:28), Gal.5:14, because when we do this we do it unto Him, Mt.25:40!
