The Triune nature of God: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. All three persons are co-equal in essence, yet the Son and Holy Ghost are in submission to the Father. The Son, the incarnate Word of God (John 1:14, Revelation 19:13), came out from God (John 8:42, John 17:8). Like the Son, the Holy Ghost also proceeded from the Father (John 15:26). So the Trinity can be explained as follows: The Son is in the bosom of the Father (John 1:18), and the Holy Ghost proceeded from God. As a result, all three persons are of the same divine essence; they are
NOT three separate Gods, but One God (in unity). Therefore, they can be called “God”
individually as well as collectively.
Jesus the Messiah is the only-begotten Son of God, born of a
virgin. The necessity for the Messiah’s virgin birth is
clearly developed and established in the Hebrew Scriptures,
and fulfilled in the New Testament.
The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23), and God sent the
Messiah into the world to suffer and die for our sins in
fulfillment of the Hebrew Scriptures (Isaiah 52:13 –
Upon Jesus’ crucifixion and death, God raised Him from the dead
(Acts 2:27, Romans 10:9, Galatians 1:1).
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.” Belief that God raised Jesus from
the dead is an absolute requirement for salvation (Romans 10:9,
After His death and crucifixion, Jesus was raised bodily. He
physically ascended into heaven and will return bodily (Luke
24:49, Acts 1:9-11, 1Corinthians 15:11-23, Matthew 24:30,
Jesus is to be honored and worshipped “exactly as” the Father
is honored and worshipped (John 5:23). Since only YHWH is to
be worshipped (Matthew 4:10), Jesus is YHWH
in the flesh!
As a result of God’s everlasting covenant with Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob, the descendents of Jacob remain His chosen people.
There is no replacement theology! After the fullness of the
Gentiles and the church is complete, God will honor His
everlasting covenant with His people (Romans 11:1-27).
Since the New Testament was established by Jesus the Messiah, a person's justification is no longer attainable by works. Only faith in Christ saves (Acts 13:39, Romans 3:28-31, Romans 11:6, Galatians 2:16, Galatians 5:4, Ephesians 2:8-9). Further note: Regarding both Jews and non-Jews, God allows different lifestyles as long as each lifestyle does NOT include anything defined as "sin" in the New Testament.
According to Romans 5:18, original sin is imputed to every single person born into the world (with no exceptions). This is because the entire humans race was in Adam's loins when he sinned and, because of this, is just as guilty. Romans 5:19 adds that, because of Adam's disobedience, "many were made sinners." In other words, it is our nature to sin. We just can't help it!
Though original sin is imputed to every single person born into the world, babies, young children and the mentally handicapped who die and were obviously unable to understand or accept the gospel message are treated with God's grace and mercy and are saved. Children are described as "innocents" in Jeremiah 19:4. And in Matthew 19:14 Jesus says: "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Absolute proof that infants are saved can be found in 2Samuel chapter 12 where King David's infant son who was conceived from his affair with Bathsheba died. In 2Samuel 12:23 David says: "I shall go to him." David knew he was going to heaven (Psalm 23:6).
