     Health authorities and governmental officials continue to strongly encourage people to wear face coverings in public gatherings and use social distancing, wash your hands, and get tested to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  In some places wearing face mask is mandatory in indoor public spaces.
     We are continuing limited indoor, in-person services with face mask, social distancing, temperature checks and Covid-19 testing. We are also continuing online services through Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube.   In-person Baptism and prayer service are available by attending our local service on site, attending our services on Zoom, or emailing your request to: or
      As we obey the Magistrates, we have complete faith that God will continue to hear our prayers and provide a way for us through these uncertain times.
 Romans 13:2-4 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
 TITUS 3:1-2 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
 This week’s encouraging words of growth focuses on:
Is Jesus Christ the Son of God Now? (part 3)
Written by Bishop S. C. Johnson
Edited by Apostle Dennis G. Smith
     There never was more than one in heaven and Jesus Christ is that one. But He does not have on flesh and blood in heaven. If we had not sinned, God would not have had to come down from heaven and put on a body. But after we sinned, it took a body of flesh and blood to redeem us for the scriptures declare, "...without the shedding of blood there is no remission." See Hebrews 9:22.
Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
God Almighty visited the House of David and chose Mary, a virgin, that never knew a man. He made a body and got in that body. For Bible proof, read Matthew 1:23When Jesus Christ was born, He was God with us.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Luke 1:68 "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people."
     Jesus Christ was God Almighty manifest in a natural flesh and blood body when he was born the Son of God.  He got rid of the natural human body (the natural mortal body that contained flesh and blood) by changing it into a glorified spiritual immortal body while He was here. He did not carry a natural body to heaven. That body had never been to heaven. That natural human body (the natural body that contained flesh and blood which came from the body of Virgin Mary) had never been in heaven and did not go to heaven. 
     In other words the Lord Jesus Christ did not ascend into heaven in a natural flesh and blood mortal human body, but he ascended into heaven in a spiritual flesh and bones glorified immortal body that had human appearance because a natural mortal human body cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. The Apostle Paul said, "...we know him no more after the flesh."
II Corinthians 5:16 says "Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more."
    Jesus told them in John 16:7-10, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me: Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;"
   He told His disciples they would see Him no more. They did not see Him anymore in a natural mortal human form (a human body containing blood) which was God's Son. He will never be a natural mortal man in a flesh and blood body again!!
God dwelling in a natural body which was God’s Son ended on the cross with the shedding of blood for the sins of all obedient believers.
In Matthew 27:54 we read, "...Truly this was the Son of God." When the Bible speaks saying, “He is the Son of God”, it is speaking in present tense about what He had been in the past before he died as if it is, because this is the way he is known when he lived and died as a natural mortal man calling the things that are not as though they were.
 For Bible to back up my statement, read Romans 4:17 "...even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." God speaks of things that are not as though they are.

Isaiah 9:6 - 7 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
     In Isaiah 9:6 it says, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given:" It was written, is born. We would use that word as present tense. Literally speaking is, is present tense. But remember, when the prophet said a child is born, a son is given, it was about 700 and some years before that child was born.
     Going back to my thought in Romans 4:17 "...even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." You can see, dear reader, that the Bible does not contradict itself.
     I contend that there never was a Son in heaven. The Son(the flesh and blood body) did not go to heaven, neither did He come from heaven. The Son of God (the flesh and blood body) did not rise from the dead in a natural body of flesh and blood. (When He arose from the dead, that body had been Glorified and all the natural life was gone out of that body.)  

Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. Acts 3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;  
Acts 3:15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

  The Sonship or the natural life mortal body started in the womb of Mary and ended on the cross!!!
(This statement establishes that the sonship was not eternal, therefore it proves that the doctrine which teaches three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead is false doctrine because it is based on the existence of the eternal Sonship of God or the eternal Son of God which is false doctrine.)
In Acts 9:20, Apostle Paul preached Christ in the synagogue, that He is the Son of God. Apostle Paul was speaking of what had been or the way he was known. The scriptures that call him the Son of God after he arose is speaking this way to teach the people to believe in him and his work on the cross as payment for the sins of all people who believe him and obey his commandments.
Acts 9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
     The eunuch said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." See Acts 8:37. This is also speaking of what had been or the way he was known calling of things that were not as though they were to express belief in Jesus Christ.
Acts 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
     There is no scripture in the Bible that says, Jesus Christ is the Son of God now. I repeat, THERE IS NO SCRIPTURE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS, JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD NOW. I defy the entire world to produce Bible for such a statement. There is none. The Apostles did not preach He is the Son of God now. I am ready to answer creation. I say according to the Bible...God was manifest in the flesh. GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH.
"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." I Timothy 3:16
     He was sown in the flesh. The natural flesh was the Son and the Eternal Spirit, which was in that flesh, was God. Thus the Apostle Paul said, "God was manifest in the flesh." This makes what I said true because the flesh was the Son begotten by the Spirit. That same spirit which begat that body was in the body.
     The Son was talking here in John 14:10: "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." Then again, He said, " Father which is in heaven...".
Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
     The Eternal Spirit which filled that body, filled heaven, filled hell, and filled every place. He was the Father of the body He was in. This makes my statement true. That body did not start in heaven, the Sonship did not start in heaven, but it started in the womb of Mary and ended on the cross; for when He died, He said, "It is finished." See John 19:30
John19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
     The work that He came to do was finished, because by the way of the cross, He brought us back to the holy state which was lost in the Garden of Eden. He did what the blood of bulls, heifers, and turtledoves could not do. If He had not come and done among them what no other man had done, they would have had a cloke for their sins. But since He came and did what no other man could do, they had no cloke for their sins.
Remember, He had the power to lay down His life and to take it again. He said, "...No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself." See John 10:18.
     It is true that the Son of God does not exist anywhere now. Jesus Christ was the Son of God when He was here in the flesh (a flesh and blood natural body). There is no scriptural proof that He was the Son of God anywhere else but here. If he was, I want you to give Bible, chapter, and verse to prove it.
In Mark 13:32 we read: "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father."
     All those that believe He is the Son of God now, put Him in a very ignorant position. If He is the Son of God now, as some say, then He does not know of the day or hour and that would be a contradiction of the scripture, because it is written: The disciple said unto him, "...Lord, thou knowest all things; See John 21:17.
      If He is the Son of God now, as some say that He is, then, He does not know when to come or when He is coming, although there is only One in heaven and that One is He. If that is true, He will not know when to come because the Bible says the Son does not know, but the Father. Mark 13:32
Mark 13:32 - 33 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
     Now, there is only One in heaven and that One is Jesus Christ. So then, our hope is in vain, because according to their statement, the One that is up in heaven does not know when to come. Can you see what a terrible mistake they have made?
     Jesus Christ is not the Son now, He is the Father. There is no Son in heaven to come. There never was a Son in heaven and never will be. When He ceased to be the Son on the cross, He went back to what He was before He was the Son...and that is the Father. He went back to being a Spirit which can manifest Himself in a physical form to be visible. The statement "went back" to what he was, is made for simplicity of understanding. It may be easier for some people to understand that he no longer manifested himself in a mortal natural body but returned to manifesting himself in a Spiritual Body the way he manifested himself before his natural birth in Mary.
     The Bible says God highly exalted Him and when He did, He went back to Spirit. He is no more son now. They don't know the scripture nor the power of God. They say that body is the son now, but that body isn't the son now. They quote the scripture that says, “A spirit hath not flesh and bones as you see me now have”. (Luke 24:39)
I agree with that scripture. It doesn't say' He is a son now. They say He has to be the son now because He ate after He arose. He ate before He got here. He appeared to Abraham in a bodily form. (Genesis 18:1-7)

Genesis 18:1 - 8 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;  Genesis 18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,  Genesis18:3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:  Genesis18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:  Genesis18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said. Genesis18:6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. Genesis18:7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetch a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. Genesis18:8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

When He arose from the dead, that body had been Glorified and all the natural life was gone out of that body. The Spirit had taken it over. The sonship was ended, and we can't call it the son of God anymore. If we call Him the son of God now, we will contradict the scripture that says: God hath highly exalted Him. 

The bible says the Father only knows the hour and if Jesus is the son now, we have to class Him with the ignorant bunch.  The bible says, LORD THOU KNOWETH ALL THINGS, (John 21:17) According to what they say there is a contradiction.

     Let's examine heaven through the scripture and see if there is a son there now. There is only one not two or three as the false prophets are saying. John was in the spirit, and he looked into heaven on the throne and saw only one.

Revelations 1:9 - 12 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelations 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,  Revelations 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. Revelations 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;  Revelations 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

The imagination of men say there are three, but the word of God says there is one.  The word of God casts down imagination. God in many places declared Himself singular by saying; I am the Holy One," 'He who alone" and other such scriptures.
     Apostle Paul declared that the one who is in heaven is without father, mother, beginning or days or end of life. All people need to take a simple examination here, and think, and tell us whose son is it without father, mother, beginning of days or end of life. Now if there is a son apart from this one, I want Bible, chapter, and verse for the same.
     Again we can say, no son of God went to heaven, no son of God came from heaven, no son of God is in heaven and no son of God arose from the dead, because the natural life of the body ended on the cross. The character of the glorified resurrected Body had changed when he arose from the grave and all scripture that calls him the Son of God after his resurrection from the dead is speaking according to the way He is known or the way He was known when His visible body was a natural flesh and blood life.
     We know him now as the Father whether in the invisible Spiritual form as the Holy ghost, or in the visible, glorified, resurrected Spiritual Body form in which we will see him.
     That is what He meant when He said, "I go unto my Father." 

John 14:12 JOH14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

 The one that is in heaven is God. He had no father, or mother. He is without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but abideth a priest continually.
Hebrews 7:1 - 3 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;  Hebrews 7:2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;  Hebrews 7:3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
     If the One which was in heaven did not have a father, mother, no descent, nor beginning of days or end of life, then you know He was not anyone's son. He came down here God. Isaiah said, "...Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance; even God with a recompense: he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped."
Isaiah 35:4 - 5 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
     When Jesus came, He fulfilled what Isaiah prophesied that God would do when He came. God came and did what Isaiah said He would do. God was not anyone's son before he took on flesh and blood through the Virgin Mary. He was without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life. This proves that there is no eternal Son of God. I defy creation to say He was anyone's son before He came down from heaven. The One that came (which is God) took on flesh and blood according to Hebrews 2:14.
Hebrews 2:14 - 17 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; Hebrews 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Hebrews 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Hebrews 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
There never was but One in heaven for the Bible says, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead”. Colossians 2:9.
     Some say, I have said there is none but Jesus. Yes, I said it and I will live up to it with Bible.
     Some say there are three distinct persons in the Godhead. That is not the truth. It is an unscriptural statement. The Bible does not teach three distinct persons in the Godhead. In Matthew 19:17, Jesus said, "There is none good but one, that is, God..." and in John 10:14, "I am the good shepherd..." We can see from the statement that the only one who is good is God, therefore the statement I am the good shepherd is a clear claim and indication by the Lord Jesus Christ that he is the one and only God. There cannot be two or three Gods, but it must be like Jesus said... One God.
Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
    That One God came down from heaven and put on a body. When he told the Jews, "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad."
    The Jews looked on his flesh and said to him. "Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am." 
John 8:56 - 58 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. John 8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?  John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
     He was not talking about his flesh existing before Abraham, because Abraham was dead 1800 years before Jesus was born in the flesh, but He was talking about the Eternal Spirit that was in that flesh.
   Can't you see that He was human and divine, God and man?  There are not two or three, there is only one.
     When the Jews asked Him, "Who art thou?" He said unto them, "Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning."
John 8:24 - 25 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 8:25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
     When He was seen of the king in the burning, fiery, furnace, the king said, "...the form of the fourth is like the Son of God." See Daniel 3:25He showed Himself unto the king in the form in which He was coming, and when He came, He said unto the Jews, "...I am He...".
John 8:28 - 29 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
In Isaiah 43:10 and 11, God said, "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour."
     There could not be another Saviour which came apart from God. That would make God a liar. He was that Saviour spoken of in Isaiah 43:11. He came in a body.  Isaiah 35:4 bears me out.
 Isaiah 35:4"Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you."
    This takes me back to Luke 1:68 where Zacharias said, "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people."
   Jesus Christ is God Almighty, for the Bible says in Psalms 100:3, "Know ye that the Lord he is God: ..."
     There are not three distinct persons in the Godhead as it has been taught for many hundreds of years. There is one, and that one is Jesus Christ. He is Father in Creation for He made all things before He put on a natural body of flesh and blood. He was Son in Redemption when He put on a natural body of flesh and blood. He is the Holy Ghost in the Church because His spirit fills His people. Notice again that we are speaking of three titles or three ways, also called roles and modes in which the one God is known. We are speaking of three manifestations of the one and only God which he has used to reveal himself because he is an invisible Spirit.
     The Bible says there is one God and there is none other but He.  The Bible says that Jesus is Lord and God. So we see, according to the Scriptures, Jesus Christ is Lord and God.
John 20:28 - 29 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
Psalms 100:3 "Know ye that the Lord he is God."
Mark 12:32"There is one God; and there is none other but he."
     There were three manifestations of this ONE GOD, but the preachers did not understand them. He was manifested as Father when He made everything. Some say this is the first person in the Godhead, but it is not so. When He was manifested in a flesh and blood natural body as the Son of God, men say this is the second person in the Godhead. When He was manifest in the Church as the Holy Ghost, they say this is the third person in the Godhead.  There is no Bible to support this teaching. It is absolutely unscriptural.  The Bible does not teach three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead. In fact, there is not even one proof text in the bible that states that there is one God who exists in three persons. They say the bible imply three persons in statements like the Father sent the Son, and I will send you another comforter in speaking of the Holy Ghost. All these scriptures speak of one God revealing himself in different manifestations.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
John15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
     In the bible I Timothy 3:16, we read: " ... God was manifest in the flesh ..." Jesus was THAT GOD manifest in the flesh when He was here in a natural body. Jesus Christ is the Almighty God.  There is none other but He.  And He said that He would manifest Himself to all that love Him and obey His commandments.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  John14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
     These scriptures which use plural words like "we", speak clearly of the fulness of the Godhead in the Lord Jesus in bodily form, and the Lord Jesus coming and indwelling all obedient believers as the Holy Ghost in invisible Spiritual form. 

Colossians 2:9 - 10 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

     There is only one Spirit so all should fully recognize that when the Bible speaks of the Holy Ghost and the Father it is speaking of the same spirit by speaking of the Holy nature or Holy character of the Father.  No one can deny that all obedient  believers must receive the gift of the Holy Ghost dwelling within us.

1Coriththians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Ephesians 4:4 - 6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

     Some use the Scripture in John to say that Jesus Christ is not God Almighty because it says that no man has seen God at any time.  And Jesus Christ was also a man which all people could see. "No man hath seen God at any time." (John 1:18).  But they fail to understand it. Speaking of man in this Scripture is referring to the natural carnal man that is not subject to the law of God, and neither indeed can be. (Romans 8:7)
Romans 8:7 - 8 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
     Since the natural man is not subject to the law of God and is contrary to God's law or commandments, he cannot see God, because God is a Spirit and man is carnal.

The Bible also says in John 6:46, "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father."
Manoah said, "We shall surely die, because we have seen God." (Judges 13:22)
Jacob said, "For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved." (Genesis 32:30) He meant he did not die.
     The preachers did not understand and don't understand the Scripture, because God did not send them. If they had been sent of God, then they would know who the Lord Jesus is. Not being sent of God, the truth of the Bible was and is hidden from them.
Jesus said, "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." (Matthew 11:25).
     I find in Luke that Jesus opened the understanding of his preachers that they might understand the Scriptures. 
Luke 24:45 - 47 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:  Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
     Not one of them ever preached that there were three distinct persons in the Godhead. Not one of them baptized anyone using the term, "In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost" because they knew the truth of it. Jesus had opened their understanding; therefore, they preached the truth. The baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ.
    God said, "I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran ..." (Jeremiah 23:21).  Again in Isaiah, "His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber." (Isaiah 56:10) Therefore, I am warning you, take heed and stay away from the false prophets and their churches.
     Jesus Christ is God Almighty and beside Him there is no God. 
"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. (Revelation 1:8.)

May God open your understanding that you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ is my prayer for you.
 More teachings are also coming to further reinforce that Jesus Christ is God Almighty alone, the one and only Almighty God. All people must examine what they are being taught. This teaching was written to stop the mouths of those Churches that teach that Jesus Christ is not God Almighty.  They spread false doctrine that was never taught by the biblical Apostles of God proclaiming that Jesus Christ is only the Son of God, a separate person, and the son of another separate person God the Father which all should now clearly understand is false doctrine.
We will continue the Apostle’s Doctrine series with The Biblical Order of the Resurrection and the Second Coming”.
May the Lord Bless you and Keep you and eternally hold you in the center of his will. 
May he open your understanding that you will come to know that you must repent of your sins and be baptized by immersion in water in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. 
Then you must continue in prayer to our God and Savior Jesus Christ asking him for the Holy Ghost, calling on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and waiting or tarrying until you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the sign following speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives you utterances.  
Then you must leave the principles of the doctrine and go on to perfection overcoming the love of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.
Then you must continue steadfastly in the Apostle’s Doctrine remembering always that he that endures until the End, the same shall be saved.  In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who is God Almighty. Amen
With perfect love,
Apostle Dennis G. Smith
