“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. (1 Tim 3:16) “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” (Jn 8:24)
Who was manifested in the flesh? God was. This topic has been a topic of debate since Jesus was born. However, it was just answered right there. God was. Not God the Son was. God was. Who was born of the virgin Mary? God was. We just read it in the verse above. “God was manifest in the flesh”. If you say yea but what about this verse… insert whatever verse on this topic you desire, but for instance this one “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Mt 1:23) Who was with us according to scripture and not traditions of men? God was. Not God the Son. Please don’t misunderstand me. Jesus was fully man and God at the same time. However, it was God in Christ not God the Son. How do I know. The Bible has already said so in the two verses I used already. “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” (2 Cor 5:19) Who was in Christ? God was. See the Bible is right it is man that has come up with the trinity. It is those who have learned of the trinity that have been taught to associate a scripture more with God the Father, or God the Son, or God the Holy Spirit. However, the Bible plainly teaches us it was God alone. There is a Son of God but not a God the Son. There is the Spirit of God because God is a Spirit (Jn 4:24) but not a God the Holy Spirit. This is all man made. From the beginning of the Bible to the end of the Bible we are taught that our God is one. The doctrine of appropriation that the trinitarian’s use is just a way to try to associate an attribute to one of the three persons of the trinity that they feel more closely aligns to what they have made up concerning God while denying the scriptures that continually teach us that it was God with us.
