Or if YOU are a Trinity worshipper are YOU an anti-Christ?…..
….And does my question sound preposterous or even blasphemous to you?
If it does, then why, would be my answer for, in my series of articles entitled “Exposing The Trinity Lie – Parts 1 through 5”, “Can Christians Grieve The Holy Spirit and “Do YOU Worship an Ogre god – parts 1 through 4” (links below), I clearly make it plain that The Trinity is, and always was, a conjuring trick of The Devil through his evil agent Tertullian, circa 200 AD. This shell game conjuring trick of now you see a god of three and then a god of one, was then added to the Latin Vulgate Bible by that other magician and trickster, Jerome, in the latter part of the fourth century AD. Rest assured, The Trinity was an unknown concept to The Learners (disciples) who later became, The Messengers (The Apostles) and the members of the first century Congregations of God and they never preached or taught it.
Now before I press on with answering this question, we need first, to know what an anti-Christ is. In the Greek Manuscripts it is written as an ‘instead anointed’ which immediately tells us we are dealing with a phony alternative or an impostor(s) or a counterfeiter(s). This is someone who is posing as being a Christian, whether they be leaders, elders, pastors, ministers, overseers or posing as being lay members of Christian fellowships. The thing is, whether they are leaders or lay people they are still ‘instead anointed’ people or phony alternatives to the real thing. If we check in Strong’s Concordance; ref numbers; G500; G473 and G5547 we will find that it confirms what I am saying:
G500 – antichristos – an-tee’-khris-tos – From G473 and G5547; an opponent of the Messiah: – anti-Christ.
G473 – anti – an-tee’ – A primary particle; opposite, that is, instead or because of (rarely in addition to): – for, in the room of. Often used in composition to denote contrast, requital, substitution, correspondence, etc.
G5547 – Christos – Khris-tos’ – From G5548; anointed, that is, the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus: – Christ.
So where do we find the Scriptural proof that Trinity worshippers are anti-Christs?
1 John 2:18-19 (KJV) Little children, it is the last time (the last days): and as ye have heard that anti-Christ shall come, even now are there many anti-Christs; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (All emphasis mine)
First of all we have confirmation from Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ), through John, that The Last Days were already under way, even in the first century. We are now living in The Last Days of The Last Days, for it is now, in the early part of the 21st century, that we have more anti-Christs than at any other time in the history of mankind and/or the history of the Congregations of God.
John then states that “anti-Christ shall come.” Now what did he mean by this statement? Easy, he was just confirming the spiritual dimension to this phenomenon known as “anti-Christ”. Anti-Christ is a spirit, a spirit that opposes Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ), and it will come, so it must originate from The Devil, for he is The Adversary and father of all anti-Christs.
Now before I push on there is one erroneous point that definitely needs clearing up re this anti-Christ topic, and it’s this, and I will shout it out as loud as I can: “THERE IS NO SINGULAR ANTI-CHRIST IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES!!!!!!!” that will rise up in these last days – NONE! We hear all kinds of drivel and nonsense about ex-president Obama being THE ANTI-CHRIST! Or some other bogey man being THE ANTI-CHRIST, when there is no single solitary ANTI-CHRIST! There will be The False Prophet and a Son of Perdition and The Beast but NO SOLITARY ANTI-CHRIST!
OK, I know all this will be very basic stuff for some of you who are Scripturally sound, but please bear with me. Notice next what John says: “They went out from us, but they were not of us.” Now why did they stop following Yashua Messiah and leave fellowship with the brethren? Again this is simple and I will quote it here:
John 6:65-66 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me (that is, Yashua Messiah), except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that (revelation) many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him. (Brackets and emphasis mine)
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the father which hath sent me draw (drag) him: and I will raise him up at the last day. (Brackets mine)
There we have it, as plain as plain can be. However, there is more to these two verses than at first meets the eye. First of all there are only two Godly beings mentioned here – The Father and The Son (Yashua Messiah) and at no time, as I work through these and the following Holy Scriptures, will you find The Holy Spirit mentioned as a member of the Godhead. A Duality Godhead is the only Godhead that is revealed to us in these verses. Second of all, notice what causes these evil wayward wretches to depart from The Truth. It was their inability to accept The Truth that they were called to The Son by The Father.
What does this mean? It means that they could not accept the fact that The Father initiated their calling and/or their coming to Yashua Messiah as their Saviour. This means, too, that they could not accept the fact that their conversion was nothing to do with them; it was solely at the behest of The Father; His desire, His will and His decision alone to call them.
Now, these wretches, just like their modern day mainstream Christian counterparts, thought that their calling was not a calling at all, but rather, they thought, it was an acceptance on their part alone of Yashua Messiah as their Saviour. This mind numbing delusional idea of theirs, in simple terminology, was and is an initiation based upon their desire, their will, their terms and conditions and their motivation, rather than a Heavenly Fatherly decision alone to call them to His Son. This, dear people, is a blasphemy and is the fundamental and gargantuan flaw that ‘underpins’ the whole sandy foundation of everything they stand for, believe in, and everything that constitutes counterfeit mainstream Christianity and/or the counterfeit Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.
Moreover, if we return to John’s words we shall see:
1 John 2:19 (KJV) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (Emphasis mine)
They went out from Yashua Messiah because, in reality, they never were ‘of Yashua Messiah’ in the first place, so they could not accept The Truth of their calling and, notice, they were made manifest (especially for our benefit) that they were not the real deal. How were they made manifest? Why, through all the outward show of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. Look folks, we need to understand that the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion is not Christian and that the majority of those involved in it are not Christians at all; they are people of religion, and there is no salvation in Religion, it’s as simple as that.
Having said that, there are quite a few Followers of The Way – Yashua Messiah, still amongst them, who have not as yet made the decision to leave and get themselves free, but they will, eventually, once they understand that there is no salvation in what they are involved with.
Moving on, we now take up this issue of trinity believers and anti-Christs in earnest:
1 John 2:22 (KJV) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? he is anti-Christ, that denieth The Father and The Son.
Right, what do we have here, and what is John actually saying? Well the first part is all very straight forward, is it not? If it isn’t then I will explain: Anyone who denies that Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) is the Messiah (the Christ – the Anointed One, that is, God come in the flesh) is a liar. So this means that all those that believe in any form of monotheism, which includes those who say that Jesus was a created being (JWs) or lesser than God, are anti-Christs.
If that part of the verse was not important enough for you, then get a load of what John says next: HE IS ANTI-CHRIST, THAT DENIETH THE FATHER AND THE SON. Now what exactly is John alluding to here and let’s get this straight in our minds, for there is one very important thing he is not saying. Here is what he is NOT saying: he that denieth The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit is anti-Christ. He is definitely not saying he who denies The Trinity is anti-Christ and we need to get this solid gold Truth through our heads, if we know what’s good for us that is.
So what is John really saying? Quite simply; and it’s always simple folks, that anyone who denies the Duality Godhead of Two Godly Beings i.e. The Father and The Son, is an anti-Christ. I will repeat that, so that it becomes more deeply seated in your minds: “He is anti-Christ that denieth The Father and The Son.” Not that he is anti-Christ who denies The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit for it does not say that. This means that anyone who denies the trinity is definitely on the right track.
If you are not convinced, let’s put this another way, because what John is also saying here is that any other deity other than a Godhead of Two Spiritual Beings i.e. the Father and the Son, or a Duality Godhead is a counterfeit godhead, a deception, and a lie. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a monotheistic ogre god with one eye, or a trinity ogre god with three eyes, who at different times appears as an ogre god with one eye, it’s all the same and it’s the spirit of anti-Christ at work in both these satanic deities. So are you going repent (change) of your erroneous beliefs or remain deceived? I hope not, for to do so will mean, whether you like it or not, that you are an anti-Christ. This also means that in the first resurrection you will hear these words from Yashua Messiah Himself: “Go away from me for I never knew you.”
Finally we have John saying this:
2 John 1:7-9 For MANY deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that (Yashua Messiah) Jesus Christ is (God) come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Christ. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the teaching of Christ, he hath both The Father and The Son. (Brackets and emphasis mine)
Notice, it’s always many that go astray, not the few, for wide is the path to destruction (spiritual ruin). Verse 9: “He that abideth in the teaching or the message of Christ, he hath both The Father and The Son.” He that hath both The Father and The Son – the Duality Godhead is the one that abides in Yashua Messiah’s (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) teaching. This means that if you think you are abiding in the teaching of Yashua Messiah and you have The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit (The Trinity) as a deity of three beings in one and one being in three then you do not have The Duality Godhead of The Father and The Son – period – fullstop – end of!
To finish off this final part I will write out the Concordant Literal Translation of verse nine for it differs from the KJV – well bowl me over with a feather, what a surprise!!??
2 John 1:9 (CLT) Everyone who is taking the lead and not remaining in the teaching of Christ has not God. He who is remaining in the teaching, this one has The Father as well as The Son. (Emphasis mine)
Why did the KJV translators write it as “Whosoever transgresseth” instead of “Everyone who is taking the lead”, for this latter more accurate rendering tells us a little more about what John is trying to get across to us? Here we can see that certain conceited people who were obviously full of themselves, as well as being full of religious blather and nonsense, were also getting ahead of themselves and ‘leading’ by teaching garbage or another non-gospel message instead of The Truth, and this is because they were anti-Christs and, to you and me, this means they were blasphemers of the counterfeit Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.
