Understanding the Trinity: God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit

Understanding the Trinity: God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit

Trinity - God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit

Understanding the Trinity is actually very easy and I will explain it to you today.  I will also explain the false teachings out there on what the Trinity is not, so you can understand what you are possibly believing in and change to the correct understanding of what the Trinity is.

The Trinity is ONE God existing in three separate Persons.  Now realise this just because we say three Persons does not mean there are three separate Gods, there is only ONE God. Now the world Trinity is not found in the bible, it is only a word used to describe  the “trinue” Godhead, that being three co-external,  co-existent Persons who make up ONE God.   So it’s not the word Trinity that is of importance, it’s what it represents that’s important.

The following is what God’s Word says about the Trinity:

1) There is ONE God (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5).

2) The Trinity consists of THREE SEPARATE PERSONS.  See here: (Genesis 1:1,26;3:22;11:7; Isaiah 6:8,48:16,61:1; Matthew 3:16-17,28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14). » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

NAR Invasion of SA – Rick Joyner, Angus Buchan, Danie Slabbert, Nevil Norden @ Apostolic Prophetic Conference – July 2012

Angus Buchan - Rick JoynerI knew it would happen and I waited patiently for this day, the day that Rick Joyner (Apostle in the New Apostolic Reformation NAR) teamed up with Angus Buchan at a conference.  This is not a new union, oh no no.  Rick Joyner and other Apostles and Prophets from the USA have had their finger in the South African ‘Reformation’ since as early as 2004, probably even earlier. In 2010 Prophetess Cindy Jacobs was invited to speak at the Global Day of Prayer organised by Graham Power a friend of Angus Buchan.

In 2008 I wrote an article on Angus Buchan called The Dominionist Faith of Angus Buchan – Faith Like Potatoes and in it I noted the following:

“There is great prophetic interest in South Africa and its southern coastline from international circles. The major reason for this is because of the many prophecies that have gone out about the latter rain move of God that is to erupt from South Africa and spread into the nations.” [Emphasis added]  Taken from here (<–this website has been since been removed)

The well-known prophet, Rick Joyner, visited Cape Town, South Africa in July 2004, and during a powerful prophetic conference on 22 July 2004, said that… » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Bishop T D Jakes To Produce New Film – Heaven Is For Real

by www.gospelconnoisseur.com, May 10, 2011

With the opening weekend success of his latest film, “Jumping The Broom,” Bishop T.D Jakes, along with Joe Roth, will produce the adaptation of the novel “Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip To Heaven And Back,” which Sony Pictures acquired the screen rights to. The film is based on an adaptation of the novel with the same namesake by Todd Burpo, also a producer. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Beth Moore, John Piper leads the Youth into Lectio Divina at Louie Giglio Passion’s Conference 2012

Beth Moore, John Piper leads the Youth into Lectio Divina at Louie Giglio Passion's Conference 2012

louie giglio - beth mooreI said it before here: Louie Giglio – A Baptist with an Emerging Agenda and here: Louie Giglio – Sometimes Silence is Loud and here: Louie Giglio – Chasing The Experience (Part 1) that Louie Giglio was silently practicing Contemplative Spirituality but no one wanted to believe me.  Well here at Passion 2012 Louie Giglio teams ups with mystic Beth Moore and newly emerged Emergent John Piper to lead a whole bunch of youngsters down the path to hell.

Put before we focus on the actual Passion 2012 conference I want to just focus on Louie Giglio’s choice of names: 268Generation and Passion.

The website is 268generation.com and many other websites that all seem to point back to  268generation.com and is based on the following scripture:  Isaiah 26.  Now who bases an entire ministry on 1/2 of a prophetic scripture in the bible that from a layperson’s view seems like a scripture that can easily be distorted to support a “works” driven ministry?

So we decided to search the  Strong’s concordance for 268 and the translation for the Hebrew word “sinner” came up as the 268th word. When you click on the Strong’s root word you see the word “sin”.  In the very definition of this word they use this term: “(2) For the RV of Rom 7:5, “sinful passions,” see PASSION, No. 1. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Patricia King – 2010: Be Fruitful, Bear Many Children

Patricia King - 2010: Be Fruitful, Bear Many Children

patricia kingPatricia King:   2010: Be Fruitful and Multiply

[DTW notes in green]

I always understood that in the Lord we were destined for increase, but it never dawned on me until recent years that we were destined for multiplication—not just addition. The Lord challenged me in prayer one day to expect multiplication in fruitfulness. The lowest level of multiplication is double. Image yourself doubled in fruitfulness right now. What does that look like to you?

[DTW note:  Oh my word, I think you and T. D. Jakes need to get together when you do next years prophecies because T. D. Jakes said that 20 is 10 carried into double portion (see article here: T. D.  Jakes – 20 is 10 Carried Into a Double Dimension).   Now Patrica you are saying that it’s actually multiplication not just addition.   But wait you say that the lowest level of multiplication is double.  So we are back to TD Jakes formula – Ahhh you two did get together didn’t you ;) ]

In Genesis 1:28, the Lord blessed humankind and made the following command: “Be fruitful and multiply.” You have the Word of the Lord over your life to be fruitful and to multiply in that fruitfulness. When you agree to come into this blessing, you are actually obeying God’s commanded purpose for your life.

[DTW note:   Right let’s go look at:

Genesis 1:27-28   27God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it;”  

I’ve got some shocking news for you Patricia but when God said, “Be fruitful and multiply” he meant for man to have lots and lots of kids to fill the earth and subdue it.”   Now going back to what you said above;  “Image yourself doubled in fruitfulness right now. What does that look like to you?”   Well it does not look good at all, I don’t need more children in my life, but thanks for the offer never the less.] » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Brian McLaren Thinks Again! On Stuff…

brian mclarenIf Brian has any clue as to what real Christianity meant he would not even have written his article below (see heading below).  But because we know he battles with concepts such as SIN and REPENTANCE OF SIN we will let Brian think again, that his ‘new kind of Christianity’ is just the schnizzle.  We on the other hand pray the he grasps REPENTANCE OF SIN.

Uganda is proposing  “The Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009” is making its way through Uganda’s parliament and will probably become law before Christmas. 

Quotes taken from The Urban Coaster

“This year, though, gays can look forward to life imprisonment or the death penalty if they are arrested for certain offences under the proposed law.”

“In 2007 the Church of Uganda consecrated Bishop John Guernsey in Virginia. The Reverend John Kalimi preaches his homophobic message at Saint Vincent’s Cathedral in Dallas-Fort Worth. Pentecostal, anti-gay ministers of mega-churches here, like TD Jakes of The Potter’s House and the Miracle Crusader Benny Hinn went to Uganda on fundraising and soul-getting missions and came back richer.

Protectors of American families like Scott Lively and Rick Warren, who think gay people need healing, threw their support behind Ugandan preacher Martin Ssempa until he started talking to the media about killing homosexuals. Rick Warren of Saddleback Valley Community Church has repudiated Martin Ssempa. Scott Lively of Defend the Family has gone quiet on the subject. “

From Brian McLarens’s website: 

Discernment websites …if you believe

I wonder if some of the “discernment websites” that enjoy featuring and critiquing the work of many of my friends and me would be willing to host some discussion on this bill currently proposed in the Ugandan parliament.

I’d be interested in reading whether participants in those blogs agree with the Ugandan bill, and if not, why not. (Details after the jump)…

A Listener’s Guide to the PulpitA Listener’s Guide to the Pulpit

An Article from Issues Etc. Journal

by Todd Wilken

How hard could it be? You go to church. The preacher preaches. You sit and listen. Easy, right?

But how do you tell the difference between a good sermon and a bad sermon? What makes good preaching good, and bad preaching bad?

For several years issues, Etc. has been doing on-air sermon reviews. We’ve reviewed the sermons of Joel Osteen, D. James Kennedy, T. D. Jakes, Robert Schuller, Joyce Meyer, as well as many less well-known preachers. We’ve reviewed the sermons of Catholics, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Eastern Orthodox, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, and others. Most of these preachers were speaking to packed auditoriums and to worldwide television audiences. Most of the preachers were dynamic, engaging, interesting, and even entertaining. Most of their sermons were terrible.

Now, who am I to make such a judgment? Nobody. But I don’t make this judgment based on my own subjective tastes or my own personal standard. I make this judgment based on the objective difference between good preaching and bad preaching. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Help Bail Ray McCauley out of Debt!

Help Bail Ray McCauley out of Debt!

Right now I wish it was the 1st of April because Ray McCauley is in serious financial debt and you can help him out, no really, you can help him out and send him your cash.

But we have decided that instead of sending him cash, cheques and electronic money transfers via the Internet we will recommend the following books that we believe will assist him greatly:

  • Ray McCauley:  Expect More: Living Your Vision
  • Morris Cerullo:  Financial Breakthrough Bible
  • Joel Osteen:  Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential
  • Joel Osteen:  Making Wise Choices – Your Decisions Determine Your Destiny
  • TD Jakes:   Reposition Yourself: Living Life Without Limits
  • Joyce Meyer:   Prepare to Prosper: Moving from the Land of Lack to the Land of Plenty
  • Joyce Meyer:  The Secret Power of Speaking God’s Word 
  • John Bevere:   Honor’s Reward: How to Attract God’s Favor and Blessing
  • Kenneth Copeland:  Laws Of Prosperity – The Principles With Kenneth Copeland – September 20-22, 1984 – Live From The Church At Eagle Mountain – Forth Worth, Texas
  • Joseph Prince:  Destined to Reign: The Secret to Effortless Success, Wholeness and Victorious Living
  • Kenneth E. Hagin:  You Can Have What You Say!

Or, better yet, there is this thing called debt counselling where you learn to manage your money like an adult.  I also recommend you have a psychological assessment done as you display the classic signs of a white collar criminal who cunningly steals from people using the best of tactics: playing on people’s emotions with regards to health and finances.  You place people under spiritual bondage that if they don’t pay tithes God will not be pleased with them, and you do all of this using the name of Jesus Christ.

As for your son, well his only concern is that he won’t get any more pocket money if your life goes pear shaped…
