The Secret Counsel of God — 2 Comments

  1. Authority:
    “Despise not prophesyings.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:20‭-‬21)

    “Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.”
    (1 Corinthians 14:29‭-‬34)

    Claim:
    “You reside on the Bosom of the Father”

    Truth:
    We reside not *on* or *in* the bosom of the Father, but *on* the bosom of the Son who dwells *in” the Father, making us complete in Jesus who fulfilled the law and the Prophets.

    Proof: (1) “Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.” (John 13:23)

    (2) “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is *in* the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” (John 1:18)

    (3) “For there are *three* that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7)

    Final Remarks:
    If we reside on the Bosom of the Father, then that makes Jesus Christ the person of the Father himself. He is not the same person of the Father, but is the eternal Son of God, whom is the image of the invisible God the Father. Him and the Father are indeed One, but have distinct persons. Oneness Pentacostalism shares this view of Jesus Christ, aka the modalist view of the trinity refuted in the early church, even by Apostle John and Paul.
