The trinity doctrine has confused many a mind as to who exactly it is that comforts us and helps us. And yet the Word of God is very clear on this subject of who it is that dwells in us, renewing us into the image of God. It is Jesus Himself! Look at what Jesus said concerning the ‘comforter’ …
John 14:16-17 …’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.I will not leave you comfortless. I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.’
Do you see this amazing truth friend? Did Jesus say He would send a ‘third God of the Godhead’. No! Jesus confirmed that it would be Himself, via His Spirit, as the comforter.
And this is vitally important friend, because not only does the trinity doctrine teach that Jesus is NOT the literal Son of God, and therefore diminish the matchless love of the Father, who ‘sent His only begotten Son’. The trinity also teaches there is a literal ‘third god’ whom is the one to comfort us while Jesus is in heaven. And yet who is it we need to dwell in us, to overcome sin and temptation? Who is it the Bible confirms is in us, seen throughout this page? It is Jesus Christ, NOT ‘another being’.
Think about this important point: – Who is the one divine being who has also taken on the fallen human nature? Who is the one divine being who has been tempted in all points as we are? (Hebrews 4:15). Who is the one divine being who knows what we go through and is able to truly help us overcome? (Hebrews 2:18). It is Jesus Christ, the righteous Son of God!
Please understand this vitally important fact. If we do not have Jesus Christ in us, then He will not be able to impute and impart His righteousness in us, and we will be lost. The trinity doctrine takes Jesus away from us and places ‘another god’ in us. Another ‘god’ who cannot help us overcome sin. But also understand, there is ‘another god’ who wants to control us … Satan!
Oh, but this isn’t what my church teaches! Then stop relying on your church for salvation and start relying on the only One who can save us – Jesus Christ.
Looking towards the end of time with His prophetic eye, Jesus said … “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8). Jesus could see the wretched state the professed church would be in. He could see that the majority of His professed church would fall away from the truth of RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH. And He could see that the majority would end up following Babylon and look to her ‘false god’ (third person of the trinity) as their ‘comforter’.
The trinity teaching robs Christ of the job that only HE can do in us. Obedience is worked out for us and with us and in us by the very One who Himself shared our fallen nature while on earth. If Christ did not come in our sinful nature with all its hereditary weaknesses, He could not, as an indwelling Saviour, provide us with a resistance to temptation. The same is true if we believe that we replace Christ with ‘another god’ in us as our comforter. And thus, our ‘hope of glory’ fades away!
Colossians 1:26-27 …’Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.’
