Jesus is NOT the Great I AM

David Yvinec
    Greek original: εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν πρὶν Ἀβραὰμ γενέσθαι ἐγὼ εἰμί (ego eimi) The statement made by Jesus was stating the obvious. Jesus was being asked whether he was the Messiah or the Son of God. Jesus responds with the answer: “I am.” The translators decided to capitalize the words I AM in order to make it look like Jesus was saying that he was the GOD from the Old Testament. (Remember, most Bible translators are Trinitarians who have certain bias; that is why it is hard for the average Christian to ...

Psalm 45:6/Hebrews 1:8 - Is Jesus really God?

David Yvinec
There is different ways to translate Psalm 45:6 and to understand Hebrews 1:8 in connection with this Old Testament passage as a result. This can be seen in the picture below, a screenshot from five different translations and their footnotes taken from Bible Gateway.  Hebrews 1:8 is not about the Messiah (or Christ), Yeshua, being God at all. This is about the Davidic king sitting on God's throne. Remember, this an excerpt from Psalm 45:6. Yes, the KJV renders it as "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is ...

Should followers of Christ celebrate birthdays?

David Yvinec
Unless otherwise noted, all scripture quotations are from the New King James Version   Birthday celebrations are a big part of our Western culture: birthday cakes and gifts are part of this tradition. But what has God to say about it? Is it only innocent fun? Does it really matter what we do as followers of Christ in such occasions, in other words can we choose to celebrate it or not as part of our so-called “Christian liberty”? In this essay we will endeavor to answer those questions by looking at the Word of God, but also what early ...

Is the Doctrine of the Trinity Scriptural?

David Yvinec
Unless otherwise noted, all scripture quotations are from the King James Version. The subject of the true sonship of God, and the relation existing between Jesus and God, has long been a question of contention. A lack of definite knowledge of the true Word of God is always responsible for a wrong understanding of this most vital subject. It is believed that the ancient Babylonians and Assyrians were the first people to formulate a trinity. This influence was also found in Egypt, Greece, and Rome in the centuries preceding and surrounding ...

Paganism and Christmas: The Great Confusion

Jamie Bessnt
For God is not the author of confusion but of peace - 1 Corinthians 14:33 How is it that everyone in the world likes celebrating Christmas? What is it about Christmas that everyone likes? Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Muslims and Christians alike will celebrate the so-called birth of Christ without any difficulty. Staunch atheists who do not believe and sometimes even hate God, will celebrate this joyous time of year with great pomp and ceremony in their homes. Why? If Christmas represents Christ, atheists should not be celebrating ...

Lack of Knowledge destroys

Jamie Bessnt
    ‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge,’ I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. – Hosea 4:6 ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!’ – Psalm 46:10 ‘The fear of Yehovah is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.’ – Proverbs 9:10-11 Today, it is easy to acquire knowledge at our ...
