1 John 1 – The World of Life& One of The Mysteries of God and Answers About Jesus

Finger Pointing UpI hope the below information answers any questions, if you have any more feel free to contact me and hopefully I will have the answer for you, but I don’t know everything.

There is a question that I did not include with those below because to many it is not a question but a goal they think they can reach, such as those of the New Age, so tomorrow we will look at…

1 John 1
The World of Life

1 31 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

1:1-4 – says almost the same thing in Jn 1:1-4.

“Was from the beginning” – has always existed.

2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

“The life…that eternal life” – Christ.  He is called “the life” because He is actually the only living being who has life within Himself by Himself.  He is also the source of all life and sovereign over life.

2 23 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

False teachers, such as Rick Warren, Oprah; evil organizations such as the Catholics and the Mormons.  Anyone or anything that does not accept Jesus as their Savior.3 2

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

This does not mean we cannot sin, because we are unable not to sin, we cannot be as holy as He is.  But if we sin “willfully” then we live in the dark and do not have fellowship with Jesus.

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23).

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

4 1“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Rom 10:9).

“Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all they diseases.

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

As far as the eat is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us” (Ps 103:3, 8, 12).

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

“We have not sinned” – Gnostics denied that their immoral actions were sinful.

One of the Mysteries of God and
Answers about Jesus

5 1Here are a couple of questions many ask, the Yes/No answer is immediate, but the more explained answer is below:

1. Was Jesus a regular person like us?  Yes. 

2.  Was Jesus the Father?  No.

3.  Was Jesus the Holy Ghost?  No.

4.  Was Jesus the Son of God?  Yes.

5.  Is Jesus God?  Yes.

6.  Did Jesus know He was God?  Not at birth.

7.  Did Jesus have the miraculous power of God when he was on earth?  No..

8.  Was Jesus abnormal, a freak of nature?  Yes.

9.  Was Jesus Satan’s brother?  No.

10.  Was Jesus a Christian?  No. 

11.  Did Jesus go to Church?  No.

12.  Did Jesus Sin?  No. 

13.  Was Jesus married?  No. 

14.  Who or what is the Trinity?  God. 

6 2Before we answer these questions, let’s explain who God is?

First off, God created us in His image and likeness.

“‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” (Gen 1:26).

(The “our” makes it clear that Jesus and the Holy Ghost have always been here too).

That does not mean we are also gods, like some idiots proclaim.  But God wants us to be His children and to do that we need to trust in Him, in Jesus Christ.

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” (Gal 3:26).

“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world” (Phil 2:15).

The Jews like to think they are the children of God, but only His children are only those that have faith in Jesus.

“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother” (1 Jn 3:10).

In 740 A.D. in a land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, known as Khazaria, a land which today is predominantly occupied by Georgia, but also reaches into Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, and Romania, the modern Jewish race is born. A modern Jewish race that incidentally is not Jewish.

At that time, the Khazarian people felt a vulnerable people as they had Muslims on one side of them and Christians the other side of them, and thus constantly feared attack from either side.

Furthermore, the Khazarian people were of neither faith and instead practiced idol worship, which made them ripe for invasion by a people who wished to convert them to an established faith.

The Khazarian King, King Bulan, decided in order to protect themselves against attack, the Khazarian people must convert to one of these faiths, but which one? If they converted to the Muslim faith they would risk attack by the Christians and if they converted to the Christian faith they would risk attack by the Muslims.

He had an idea. There was another race that he was aware were able to deal with both the Muslims and the Christians either side of him, predominantly in matters of trade.

A race which also dealt with Khazarians in the same manner. That race was the Jews. King Bulan decided if he instructed his people to convert to Judaism he could keep the Muslims and the Christians happy, as they were both already willing to trade with the Jews, so this is what he did.

King Bulan was right. He would live to see his country unconquered, his people convert to Judaism enthusiastically and adopt the principles of the most holy Jewish book, the Talmud [which is the most evil book of all, it is worse than the Koran].

He would not live to see many things, things he hoped would be good, nor would he live to experience the bible prophecy, as the, “Synagogue of Satan.”

And Jesus is clear on pointing this out.

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of tem which say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” (Rev 2:9).

We are spirits created by God and placed inside human body/shell/tent, a fabrication also created by God and we need to act and behave like Him.  A quick summarization is:

God is A Spirit – “God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (Jn 4:24).

(Throughout the entire Bible God’s Spirit, whether it is talking about the Holy Ghost or just God’s Spirit, i.e., the Trinity (1 Jn 5:7), will always be capitalized.  When our spirit is mentioned it will be in lower case).

God is holy – “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation” [conduct/behavior] (1 Pet1:15).

God is Love – “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 Jn 4:8).

And this is the type of person God is and we are to follow suit –

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Gal  5:22-23).

God is the creator of all things:

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen 1:1).

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him” (Col 1:16).

“All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (Jn 1:3).

God created everything and He created it for Him to enjoy, whatever pleases Him He does.

“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Is 46:10).

God answers to no one, He can do anything:

“For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Lk 1:37).

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Is 45:7).

God loves everyone the same (Rom 2:11), but does not mean He treats everyone the same way, as He told Moses:

“And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be
gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy”
(Ex 33:19).

Answer Section

1. Was Jesus a regular person like us? 

Yes He was and He did not know that He was God until later (this is explained in question #6). 

The only difference between Jesus and us is that His mother, Mary, was still a virgin when He was born.  How that is possible is that she had been impregnated by the Holy Ghost, her hymen was still fully intact.

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost” (Matt 1:18).

“…the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph…fear not…for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghos”t (Matt 1:20).8

And her husband, Joseph, did not have intercourse with her until Jesus was born (Matt 1:25).


2.  Was Jesus the Holy Father? 

No, the Holy Father was the father of “Jesus the person”, rather than “Jesus the Spirit”, but they were equal.

“My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

I and my Father are one” (Jn 10:29-30).

God enters into humanity to save humanity – that’s Christmas.
It is about grace undeserved which should lead to faith unreserved.

What does it mean to be human? Is it our reason, or morality, or dominance on earth that sets us apart from other creatures?

Jesus is as much a revelation of God as he is of true humanity – humanity as it was meant to be, untainted by sin.

Why is Jesus humanity important? Because it means we have real knowledge of true humanity, real salvation as Jesus is our substitute, and real comfort and help as we face trials and temptation.

Without Jesus we are nothing!

3.  Was Jesus the Holy Ghost?

No, the Holy Ghost was the Comforter that comes to us when we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior.

“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever” (Jn 14:16).

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” (14:26).

4.  Was Jesus the Son of God? 

Yes, but He was also known as the “Word” and the “Lamb of God” because He was the sacrificial lamb on Pentecost to save us from our sins (1 Pet 1:19).

The need for a sacrificial lamb without blemish began at the beginning of time (Ex 12L5).

“And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he [John the Baptists] saith, Behold the Lamb of God” (Jn 1:36).

“The next day John [the Baptists] seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (Jn 1:29).

“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession” (Heb 4:14).

The demons also knew that Jesus was the Son of God:

“When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not” (8:28).

“And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not” (Mk 5:7).

5.  Was Jesus God? 


10 1
When Jesus is called the Lamb of God in John 1:29 and John 1:36, it is referring to Him as the perfect and ultimate sacrifice for sin.
In order to understand who Christ was and what He did, we must begin with the Old Testament, which contains prophecies concerning the coming of Christ as a “guilt offering” (Is 53:10).

In fact, the whole sacrificial system established by God in the Old Testament set the stage for the coming of Jesus Christ, who is the perfect sacrifice.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (Jn 1:1, 14).

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” ( 1 Tim 3:16).

6.  Did Jesus know He was God? 

The Bible does not explicitly say if He did or not.  I say He didn’t until He was around 12 years old because of the following reasons:

Every year Mary, Joseph and Jesus went to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover.  When they went and left Jerusalem they did in a group.  This particular time when Marry and Joseph left for home they didn’t see Jesus, but thought He was with friends somewhere in the crowd.

After a day they still had not seen Him and no one else did either so they returned to Jerusalem and three days later they found Him…

“…in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both bearing them, and asking them questions.

And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him,  Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us?  Behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me?  Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” (Lk 2:46).

11 1
The Holy Spirit gives us the power to live a victorious life. We do not have it in ourselves.
Other religions tell you that you have the power in you; they tell you to find your inner self or inner strength.

We are as helpless and hopeless to fight against the enemy without the Holy Ghost.
As the Scripture says, it is through God that we shall do valiantly; because it is He who will tread down our foes.

David says, “The God who has girded me with strength has opened wide my path. He made my feet like the feet of deer, and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze” (1 Sam 22:33-35).

But that is not the only reason I say Jesus did not know He was God right away, the other reason is that, according to the Bible, Jesus was not filled with the Holy Ghost until John the Baptist baptized Him.

“Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.  Then he suffered him.

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matt 3:13-17).

But John the Baptist, who was Jesus cousin and six months older (Lk 1:36), knew of God and he knew who Jesus was because he was filled with the Holy Ghost before he was even born.

“And there appeared unto him an angel [Gabriel v. 19] of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and may shall rejoice at his birth.

For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb” (Lk 1:11-15).

Passover, or Pesach is the most important Jewish festival (there are seven in all, which we will discuss later).

The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation over 3,300 years ago by God from slavery in ancient Egypt that was ruled by the Pharaohs, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses.

It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible, especially in the Book of Exodus (chap 12), in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.

Passover commences on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nisan and lasts for either seven days (in Israel) or eight days (in the diaspora).

In Judaism, a day commences at dusk and lasts until the following dusk, thus the first day of Passover only begins after dusk of the 14th of Nisan and ends at dusk of the 15th day of the month of Nisan.

The rituals unique to the Passover celebrations commence with the Passover Seder when the 15th of Nisan has begun.

In the Northern Hemisphere Passover takes place in spring as the Torah prescribes it:
“In the month of [the] spring” (בחדש האביב Ex 23:15). It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holiday.

In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God helped the Children of Israel escape from their slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues (Ex 7:14-11:10) upon the ancient Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release his Israelite slaves; the tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of the Egyptian first-born.

The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to Passover the first-born in these homes, hence the name of the holiday.

Samaritans still make this pilgrimage to Mount Gerizim, but only men participate in public worship.

John, even as a fetus, knew that Jesus was God and due to his actions so did Elisabeth and Mary, but unless one of them told Jesus He did not.  And even if they had that would be a hard pill to swallow.

“And [Mary] entered the house of Zacharias and saluted Elisabeth.

And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit:

And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

For lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord” (Lk 1:40-47).

7.  Did Jesus have the miraculous power of God when he was on earth? 

No, He, like us, prayed and fasted.  He also spent a lot of time talking to the Father, which we should all do, but we can talk to all of them at the same time, which will be explained in question #14.

“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered” (Matt 4:1-2).

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” (Mk 1:35).

“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God” (Lk 6:12).

John 17 is one big prayer – Jesus is praying for us.

8.  Was Jesus abnormal, a freak of nature like some people say? 

You bet He was, He was the only person that ever lived without sin, I would say that is definitely abnormal and freakish, I wish I was such a freak.

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Cor 5:21).

“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” (4:15).

“Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth” (1 Pet 2:22).

9.  Was Jesus Satan’s brother?   

No, Satan is a fallen angel.  Jesus actually created Satan, as He did all the angels.

“All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (Jn 1:3).

Satan had been the greatest of all angels, and he was beautiful and extremely intelligent.  His beauty and intelligence filled him with pride and he sinned.

Know that God has not taken anything away from Satan aside from his residence and his authority over the other angles in heaven.  That is why Peter warns us to stay away from Him:

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet 5:8).

First off, Satan did not lead Jesus anywhere, as many try to say.
After Jesus was baptized by John the Baptized His spirit took him into the wilderness to fast for 40 days and nights (Matt 4:1-2).

And of course, He was then hungry and weak, and that was when the devil attacked Him (Matt 4:3-11).

The devil is like a Hyena – it is small and vicious, but cowardly. It only strikes its victims when they are weak and close to dying.

The Mormons, like other faiths, believe that God created Jesus and Satan and therefore they are brothers.

God did not create Jesus, Jesus is God (Jn 1:1, 14; 1 Tim 3:16).

But God did create Satan, at one time he was the most powerful angel of all, but like a lot of powerful people, they become obsessed with themselves and the end up falling flat on their faces.

God literally threw Satan out of heaven (Is 14:12-17; Eze 28:3-19) and he will spend eternity in hell (Rev 12:7-12).

And Jesus told us how wicked he is, as well as the non-believers of the world, and what he/they will do to us (Jesus is talking to the Pharisees, the Jews, here):

“‘Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (Jn 8:44).

What Jesus says above tells us how dangerous Satan is, and God explains what happened in heaven:

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? (Is 14:12-17).

Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

By thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;

Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.

They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.

Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

14 1

Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more” (Eze 28:3-19).

10.  Was Jesus a Christian? 

No.  Jesus is not a religion, He is God.  And He did not call his disciples or anyone a Christian, the people of Antioch (Acts 11:26) started calling the disciples Christians after Jesus was crucified, resurrected and gone because even in Jesus absence they continued to live the, per se, Christian way.

Today the term “Christian” does not mean much because the new definition, according to today’s dictionaries, such as Dictionary.com:

1. a person who believes in Jesus Christ; adherent of Christianity.

2. a person who exemplifies in his or her life the teachings of Christ: He died like a true Christian.

3. a member of any of certain Protestant churches, as the Disciples of Christ and the Plymouth Brethren.

Catholics call themselves Christians and it fits in the above definition, but they are not, they are of the synagogue of Satan (Rev 2:9).

11.  Did Jesus go to Church?  

No, but He did go to temples and synagogues to correct the priests of their evil ways.

Jesus is the head of the church and we, the followers, is the church.

“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” (1 Pet 2:5).

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16:18).

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Cor 6:19).

“But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Pet 2:9).

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence” (Col 1:13-18).

12.  Did Jesus Sin?

No, see question #8 for explanation.

13.  Was Jesus married?

No.  There is no place in the Bible that says He was or was not.  I am sure that if He had been married it would have been written.

14.  Who or what is the Trinity?  

The Trinity is God, which is the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.  Yet, even though it is one God, these are three different people.  That does not make sense to us, but neither does God.

This is why I had said in question #7 that we don’t pray to the Father, we pray to all of them, to God.

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

A Few Other Questions

Beware of false teachings-doctrines and paganism Christianity.
If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement (2 Jn 1:10).

Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them (2 Tim 3:5).
It is interesting to observe that anti-christian groups rarely try to lead lost sinners to their false faith.

Instead, they spend much of their time trying to convert professing Christians (and church members, at that) to their own doctrines.

They are out to “seduce” the faithful.

The word “seduce” carries the idea of “being led astray.”

We have been warned that this would happen: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons” (1 Tim 4:1).

Jesus calls Satan the “father of lies” (Jn 8:44).

The devil’s purpose is to lead Christians astray by teaching them false doctrines (2 Cor 11:1-4, 13-15).

We should not accept everything a person tells us simply because he claims to believe the Bible, for it is possible to “twist” the Bible to make it mean almost anything (2 Cor 4:1-2).

And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works (2 Cor 11:14-15).

Satan is not an originator; he is a counterfeiter.

He imitates the work of God. For example, Satan has counterfeit “ministers” (2 Cor 11:13-15) who preach a counterfeit gospel (Gal 1:6-12) that produces counterfeit Christians (Jn 8:43-44) who depend on a counterfeit righteousness (Rom 10:1-10).

In the Parable of the Tares (Matt 13:24-30, 36-43), Jesus and Satan are pictured as sowers.

Jesus sows the true seed; but Satan sows “the children of the wicked one.”

The two kinds of plants, while growing, look so much alike that the servants could not tell the difference until the fruit appeared!

Satan’s chief stratagem during this age is to plant the counterfeit wherever Christ plants the true.

And it is important that you be able to detect the counterfeit and separate the teachings of Christ from the false teachings of Antichrist.

Where did God come from?

Nobody knows, but Jesus tells us that He has always been:

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Rev 1:8).

Can God create a rock so heavy He can’t lift it?

That is a ridiculous question, but the answer is yes.

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matt 19:26).

“For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Lk 1:37).

If God created everything, who created God?

Nobody, He has always been (Rev 1:8).

“I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior” (Is 43:11).

“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me” (Is 45:5).

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Is 45:7).

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else;  (I am God, and there is none like me” (Is 46:9).

…can we become Gods?
