“And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:”

John 17:22

It is known to many that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.  However, it is not known to many that Jesus is the Son of God and not God Himself.  To deny the deity of Christ is heresy to many and tantamount to blasphemies against God.  However, consider for a moment that God may wish to enlighten us to a new or perhaps deeper truth concerning His Son.  Maybe our Father desires to teach us more about His true nature.

Taken over by God

Possession is a condition associated with the demonic realm.  Many people have heard about demons taking over individuals minds and bodies.  Some have even witnessed exorcism being performed by priests trying to make evil spirits leave people.  Though Hollywood dramatizes these events, they are real and I have been present when demons manifest.  However demonic possession, like so many other things in the spiritual realm, is the counterfeit of what God made holy and pure.

Though many do not know it, when they speak in other tongues, it is a limited form of possession.  As we allow God to possess our tongue, the Holy Spirit takes control.  Being Spirit led is a form of possession.  To the degree that we yield our body, soul, and mind to God, He lives in us.  The question is who will possess us. The spirits we yield to reveal who we serve and determine where we spend eternity. If we yield to God and His angels, heaven will be our home.  If we yield to Satan and his fallen spirits, we will join them in the Lake of Fire.

God says,

“Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;”

Hebrews 1:2

And God also says,

“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 Corinthians 5:19

God was in Christ Jesus and that is what made Jesus equal with God.  As God fully possessed Christ he could rightly say that “I am the Father are one”. However, this does not negate the fact that He was born of a woman and fully man.

Be filled with His Spirit

God describes our bodies as earthen vessels.  We are, as it were, clay pots filled either with the glory of God or the dishonor of Satan.  The Holy Spirit filled Jesus completely and that is how he is equal to God.  Here is a truth,

“Equality with God does not mean that Jesus was a separate god, but that He is the exact representation of the one true God.”

Thus, when you look into the son of God’s eyes you see deity looking back.  When Jesus speaks it is God speaking.  When the hand of Christ touches you, it is the touch of God.  It is the indwelling of God which glorifies the son of man.

Jesus is filled with God’s Spirit without measure

We must understand that Christ was a man filled by God so that we realize that we can be filled with His Spirit too.   Just as Jesus manifests the nature of God, as we yield to His Spirit, we can allow God to live through us also.  Just as God possessed Jesus, we can be possessed of the Holy Spirit.  However, whereas demons bind people, the Holy Spirit frees us to become what our creator intended.

Frankly, I do not know what all the fuss is about concerning the Trinity.  Many people think that certain doctrines are true, but later discard them as error.  Literally, every doctrine the Roman Catholic Church believed during the dark ages is heretical to some degree.  Why is it so difficult for people to accept that the doctrine of the Trinity is faulty too?

Be filled to the measure God gives you

Understanding Jesus was a man,  filled with God, allows us to know that we have the same destiny too.  It also allows us to know that Jesus is someone we can emulate.  If Jesus is indeed God from the day he was born, there is no example we can follow.   After all, who among us can be like God?  On the other hand, if we understand that Jesus was born of a woman and had to make decisions just like us, that is a pattern we can follow.

God says,

“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

Hebrews 14:15

The belief in the Trinity is Strong Delusion

The doctrine of the Trinity based on fear and oppression.  Many churches don’t actually believe God is one, but teach that God is three in one.  If you point out that the “holy trinity” is not sound doctrine church leaders break fellowship.  Refusing to fellowship with another believer, based on error, is demonic intimidation.

In conclusion, Christian doctrine needs to be set right no matter what the cost. The foundation of our faith needs to be brought into alignment with God’s true nature.  We must do the hard and dirty work of digging out the bad so that we can build upon the good.  If we build upon a foundation of lies,  anything we build will fail just when we need to be strong.
