1 Presents The Trinity Compiled and Illustrated from The study of The Word of GOD And The Spirit of Prophecy, October 2013 Verses The Atonement Part (3) `

2 True Track Track of Time Part 3 Have you received The Testimony of Christ Jesus, Whom GOD has sent? Have you received The Testimony of Christ Jesus, Whom GOD has sent? The Ending False Track Time of the end Time of the end

3 False Track In the time of the disciples, True Track John testified of Christ Jesus, Who, was speaking unto Thomas, when He… The Ending False Track Track of Time Time of disciples Time of disciples “...saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him” (John 14:6, 7).

4 In seeking to understand GOD, one writer said,… False Track Yet, in our time, many are saying That GOD is a Mystery of Three Persons in Trinity. True Track Jesus said to Thomas, “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. The Ending False Track Track of Time Time of disciples Time of disciples “In studying the Trinity in Scripture we need to be aware that we can only ever achieve a partial understanding of what the Trinity is. As we listen to God’s Word, certain elements of the Trinity will become clear, others will remain a mystery.” Biblical Research Institute, in the Study of “THE TRINITY IN SCRIPTURE” Page 2 Biblical Research Institute, in the Study of “THE TRINITY IN SCRIPTURE” Page 2

5 Speaking of The Son, Who is of GOD, John said of Him, True Track The Ending False Track If a believer knows Jesus, then the believer will know The Father also If a believer knows Jesus, then the believer will know The Father also If men are saying that GOD is a Mystery, then they are saying that Jesus has not revealed to men The Father, and they do not know Him. If GOD is a Mystery, then men do not know The Son of GOD If GOD is a Mystery, then men do not know The Son of GOD Track of Time Time of the end Time of the end “He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him]. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand” (John 3:31-35).

6 False Track In testifying to the church at Corinth, Paul said, True Track The Ending False Track If a believer knows The Word, then the believer will know GOD also If a believer knows The Word, then the believer will know GOD also One of the reasons for sending The Son of GOD into the world was to reveal The Truth of GOD to men, that men might be reconciled to GOD. If GOD is a Mystery, then men do not know HIM to be One in HIM If GOD is a Mystery, then men do not know HIM to be One in HIM Track of Time Time of disciples Time of disciples “…seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (2 Corinthians 4:1-5). “…seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (2 Corinthians 4:1-5).

7 “For 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. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:6, 7).

8 False Track True Track According to Paul’s testimony, GOD has commanded The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD to shine out from their hearts. Yet, This Knowledge of GOD was not of them. For it was of Christ, Who was preaching His Treasures of Knowledge through them. False Track The Light of GOD’S Word shines out of those, who receive The Son of GOD. The Light of GOD’S Word shines out of those, who receive The Son of GOD. Those, who receive not The Word, they remain in the dark Those, who receive not The Word, they remain in the dark Speaking of His Treasures of Wisdom, The Word said, The Ending Track of Time Time of disciples Time of disciples “O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them. They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold” (Proverbs 8:5-10). “O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them. They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold” (Proverbs 8:5-10).

9 “For wisdom [is] better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom: I [am] understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, [even] all the judges of the earth” (Proverbs 8:11-16).

10 “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour [are] with me; [yea], durable riches and righteousness. My fruit [is] better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures” (Proverbs 8:17-21).

11 True Track The Word of Wisdom has revealed that He Leads all, who love Him, and find Him, to have His durable Riches, and His Righteousness. False Track True track is The Way of Wisdom, Who is better than gold, yes, than fine gold True track is The Way of Wisdom, Who is better than gold, yes, than fine gold False track is of evil, pride, arrogance, the evil way, a perverse mouth False track is of evil, pride, arrogance, the evil way, a perverse mouth For He causes those, who love Him, and His Fruit to inherit Substance, and to be filled with His Treasures of Understanding. For He causes those, who love Him, and His Fruit to inherit Substance, and to be filled with His Treasures of Understanding. The Ending Track of Time In the time of John, he testified of Him, Who said,… Time of the end Time of the end

12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it]. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:12-17).

13 False Track True Track Because the world does not receive and follow The Treasures of The Word of Wisdom, they do not know The Spirit of Truth, because they do not see Him to follow Him on The True Track of Righteousness. False Track The disciples knew of Him, because He was with them, and would be in them. The disciples knew of Him, because He was with them, and would be in them. The world does not see The Spirit of Truth, because they know Him not The world does not see The Spirit of Truth, because they know Him not The Ending Track of Time Many of the Christians in our time following the world and not The Spirit of Truth. John, testified of The Spirit of Truth, and said,… Time of disciples Time of disciples

14 “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:10-13).

15 True Track In following the wisdom of the world, which received not The Spirit of Truth, one author, as he wrote of The Son of GOD, and in support for the Trinity, rather than The Testimony of The Word of Wisdom, he said, False Track The Ending Track of Time Time of the end Time of the end “At the baptism of Jesus the Father called him “my beloved Son.” The sonship of Jesus, however, is not ontological but functional. In the plan of salvation each member of the Trinity has accepted a particular role. It is a role for the purpose of accomplishing a particular goal, not a change in essence or status.” Biblical Research Institute, in the Study of “THE TRINITY IN SCRIPTURE” Page 3 Biblical Research Institute, in the Study of “THE TRINITY IN SCRIPTURE” Page 3

16 In looking up the big word that was used to hide what was being promoted to the hearts of men and women in his article, it is revealed that the word “ontological”, is an (adjective word of, or having to do with ontology, which is a noun and means the branch of philosophy that deals with the nature of reality. It is said by the “The World Book Dictionary”, published by Thorndike Barnhart that “The root of every philosophy is the ontological question. What is being, What is ultimate reality beyond everything that seems to be real?”

17 Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being, becoming, existence, or reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relations. Traditionally listed as a part of the major branch of philosophy known as metaphysics, ontology deals with questions concerning what entities exist or can be said to exist, and how such entities can be grouped, related within a hierarchy, and subdivided according to similarities and differences. In other words, what this person is saying by his article to support his view of The Trinity in Scripture, is that “The sonship of Jesus, however, is not ontological,” or The Sonship is not a philosophy that deals with the nature of reality. His Sonship is a role that He, as a Member of The Triune GOD has accepted for the purpose of accomplishing a particular goal.

18 g In other words, The TESTIMONY of The Father and The Son is done away, to maintain The Essence, or The Status of Three Divine Beings, Who are all Co-Equal and Co-Eternal before anything was created. The Father does not have a real Son. Neither does The Son have a real Father, because They are fulfilling a functional role, which they have accepted to accomplish a particular goal. And if they are fulfilling a role, then The Son, Who is playing the role of a Son, He could have been playing the role of The Father, and The Father could have played the role of The Son. Role playing is viewed by the world, as being the reality, it is not The Truth, as revealed by The Word of Wisdom, Who said, “…my mouth shall speak truth”.

19 True Track Track of Time The Ending False Track As we draw nearer and nearer to the end of this world’s history, which follows a false track, which will come to an end, are we receiving and believing The Testimony of The Spirit of Truth, of The Things He has revealed of The NAME of GOD, that we might follow The Track of Truth unto Eternal Life? Eternal Life Through Moses, The Spirit of Truth said,… Time of the end Time of the end “For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death? Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them” (Deuteronomy 31:27, 28).

20 “For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt [yourselves], and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended” (Deuteronomy 31:29, 30).

21 “Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. [He is] the Rock, his work [is] perfect: for all his ways [are] judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right [is] he. They have corrupted themselves, their spot [is] not [the spot] of his children: [they are] a perverse and crooked generation” (Deuteronomy 32:1-5.

22 False Track True Track Track of Time The Ending False Track Notice that The Word of GOD was speaking through Moses of the children of Israel, whose spot was not the spot of HIS children, who were to be sons and daughters of GOD. They provoked The Lord to jealousy, and anger, because of their strange gods, which their father’s had not known. The children were as a perverse and crooked generation who knew not their Lord. The children were as a perverse and crooked generation who knew not their Lord. Moses, the prophet of The LORD knew that the children of Israel would follow strange gods. Moses, the prophet of The LORD knew that the children of Israel would follow strange gods. Time of Moses Time of Moses

23 True Track Track of Time The Ending False Track Like Moses, who was given a vision of the children of Israel, who corrupted themselves after he was gone, Ellen G. White saw what was going to follow the Alpha to be a problem for the church that she loved. She wrote and said,… The church would corrupt themselves to follow strange gods, to know not The LORD. The church would corrupt themselves to follow strange gods, to know not The LORD. Ellen, the prophet of The Lord knew that the church would be led to follow strange gods. Ellen, the prophet of The Lord knew that the church would be led to follow strange gods. Time of the end Time of the end “About the time that Living Temple was published, there passed before me in the night season, representations indicating that some danger was approaching, and that I must prepare for it by writing out the things God had revealed to me regarding the foundation principles of our faith. A copy of Living Temple was sent me, but it remained in my library, unread. From the light given me by the Lord, I knew that some of the sentiments advocated in the book did not bear the endorsement of God, and that they were a snare that the enemy had prepared for the last days. I thought that this would surely be discerned, and that it would not be necessary for me to say anything about it. (Selected Messages, Book 1, Page 202) “About the time that Living Temple was published, there passed before me in the night season, representations indicating that some danger was approaching, and that I must prepare for it by writing out the things God had revealed to me regarding the foundation principles of our faith.

24 “In the controversy that arose among our brethren regarding the teachings of this book, those in favor of giving it a wide circulation declared: "It contains the very sentiments that Sister White has been teaching." This assertion struck right to my heart. I felt heartbroken; for I knew that this representation of the matter was not true. Finally my son said to me, "Mother, you ought to read at least some parts of the book, that you may see whether they are in harmony with the light that God has given you." He sat down beside me, and together we read the preface, and most of the first chapter, and also paragraphs in other chapters.

25 “As we read, I recognized the very sentiments against which I had been bidden to speak in warning during the early days of my public labors. When I first left the State of Maine, it was to go through Vermont and Massachusetts, to bear a testimony against these sentiments. Living Temple contains the alpha of these theories. I knew that the omega would follow in a little while; and I trembled for our people. I knew that I must warn our brethren and sisters not to enter into controversy over the presence and personality of God. The statements made in Living Temple in regard to this point are incorrect.

26 “The scripture used to substantiate the doctrine there set forth, is scripture misapplied. I am compelled to speak in denial of the claim that the teachings of Living Temple can be sustained by statements from my writings. There may be in this book expressions and sentiments that are in harmony with my writings. And there may be in my writings many statements which, taken from their connection, and interpreted according to the mind of the writer of Living Temple, would seem to be in harmony with the teachings of this book. This may give apparent support to the assertion that the sentiments in Living Temple are in harmony with my writings. But God forbid that this sentiment should prevail.

27 True Track Track of Time The Ending False Track The writings of Ellen G. White would be made to support the Omega of deadly heresies. Ellen G. White wrote and said,… The church would be Led to believe that Ellen’s writings supported the strange gods The church would be Led to believe that Ellen’s writings supported the strange gods Ellen G. White saw that the church would follow the Omega after being open to accept the Alpha Ellen G.

28 “The track of truth lies close beside the track of error, and both tracks may seem to be one to minds which are not worked by the Holy Spirit, and which, therefore, are not quick to discern the difference between truth and error” (Selected Messages, Book 1, Pages 202, par. 1, 2) “The track of truth lies close beside the track of error, and both tracks may seem to be one to minds which are not worked by the Holy Spirit, and which, therefore, are not quick to discern the difference between truth and error” (Selected Messages, Book 1, Pages 202, par. 1, 2)

29 “In describing to His disciples the office work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus sought to inspire them with the joy and hope that inspired His own heart. He rejoiced because of the abundant help He had provided for His church. The Holy Spirit was the highest of all gifts that He could solicit from His Father for the exaltation of His people. The Spirit was to be given as a regenerating agent, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail. The power of evil had been strengthening for centuries, and the submission of men to this satanic captivity was amazing.

30 “Sin could be resisted and overcome only through the mighty agency of the Third Person of the Godhead, who would come with no modified energy, but in the fullness of divine power. It is the Spirit that makes effectual what has been wrought out by the world's Redeemer. It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given His Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress His own character upon His church.

31 The Ending The Beginning There are millions today following the wrong spirit, to believe in a strange god known, as a Mystery. Their spot, their mark, is not the mark of The Spirit of Truth. False Track Following the spirit of error True Track Following The Spirit of Truth For The Spirit of Truth, Who was sent said,… Time of the end Time of the end

32 “For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:11-15).
