Unveiling The Mystery of theGODHEAD A presentation by:Ptr. RONNIE MILLEVO
DENOMINATIONAL BELIEF NO. 1 TRINITY DOCTRINE THREE PERSONS IN ONE GOD SHARING THE SAME POWERS, OCCUPYING THREE THRONES IN HEAVEN Discrepancy in the doctrine: THREE PERSONS = THREE GODS
DENOMINATIONAL BELIEF NO. 2 ONENESS DOCTRINE JESUS IN FLESH IS ALL THREE Discrepancy in the doctrine: WHY DID JESUS TALK TO HIS FATHER if He himself is the Father?
DENOMINATIONAL BELIEF NO. 3 TWONESS DOCTRINE ETERNAL FATHER & ETERNAL SON Discrepancy in the doctrine: A ‘SON” is ‘BEGOTTEN’. The word “SONSHIP” signifies a ‘BEGINNING”.
THE QUESTION IS: • ….WHERE DO YOU STAND? • …WHICH TEACHING DO YOU BELIEVE? • ….HOW DO YOU DIFFER FROM ALL THESE DENOMINATIONAL INTER-PRETATIONS ABOUT THE GODHEAD? • ….. IS THERE A REAL TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF THE GODHEAD? • THE ANSWER IS YES !!!!
Let us consider these two scriptures: JOHN 1:1, 14 “IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD….. AND THE WORD WAS MADEFLESH AND DWELT AMONGST US. GENESIS 1:1-“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
LET’S BEGIN BY KNOWING WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF TIME… LET US START FROM ETERNITY, BEFOREGOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH… -NOT in GENESIS 1:1 or JOHN 1:1-
Before the beginning of TIME, there was… ELOHIM The Great Eternal Spirit..The “I AM”…The Self-Existing One.. … also known as JHVH Elohim’s characteristics are: ETERNAL (He has No Beginning nor Ending) ONMNIPOTENT ( He is All-Powerful) OMNISCIENT (He Knows all things) OMNIPRESENT (He can be everywhere) SOVEREIGN (No one dictates to Him) INFINITE (He has no limitation)
What the Bible says about GodElohim”: ISAIAH 43:10-11 - 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. ISAIAH 45:21- And [there is] no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; [there is] none beside me. PSALMS 86:10 - For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou [art] God alone. ISAIAH 37:16- O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest [between] the cherubims, thou [art] the God, [even] thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth. EXODUS 20:2-3 - I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Elohim has eternal thoughtsand attributes that He needed to express… He wanted to be… GOD… “God” means “an object of worship.” He wants to be worshipped. And so He created first, the angels. FATHER…- He wished to have sons and daughters. He created Adam and Eve; you and me. HEALER –sickness is part of God’s permissive will SAVIOUR - there has to be a fallen creature REDEEMER - there has to be a previous ownership JUDGE – there has to be both righteous & the wicked KING – there has to be a Kingdom of His own rulership. PRIEST – He is High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities
In order for these attributes (thoughts) of God to be manifested, he needed a “BODY” in order to perform it… Then OUT of God, came the “LOGOS”, the WORD.. JOHN 1:1-3,14 “In the beginning was the Word (LOGOS), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.The same was in the beginning with God.All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made” ..And theWordwas madeflesh and dwelt amongst us.” “LOGOS” means “The Divine Expression of God”; the EXPRESS “IMAGE” of the Invisible God. This “LOGOS”is the “THEOPHANY” of God “LOGOS” means “something spoken; which includes the thoughtsof the Speaker.
The “LOGOS” is the “SON” in Pre-Figure COLOSSIANS 1:15 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 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: 17 And He is before all things, and by him all things consist. This “LOGOS” is the “CHRIST” This LOGOScreated all things… GENESIS 1:1-“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” “For in HIM dwelleth the FULNESS of the Godhead Bodily.” - Colossians 2:9
LIFE.title JEFF.IN 57-0602 And then out of the existence of the Father went the Logos which was the Son, which was the theophany, which was the body of the great Jehovah God went forth in a celestial Body. That's the Logos. The Word spoke out of them great Fountains of Life and went forth. And there was the theophany, which was God made into Word. Then that theophany was made flesh in the Person Christ Jesus. And then all the fullness of the Trinity dwelt in Him, both Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all in that. HEBREWS.CHAPTER.1.title JEFF.IN HEB 57-0821 This great Fountain of Spirit which had no beginning or no end, this great Spirit begin to form in the creation; and the Logos that went out from It was the Son of God. It was the only visible form that this Spirit had. And It was a theophany, which means a body, and the body was like a man.
HEBREWS.CHAPTER.2.PART.3.title JEFF.IN HEB 57-0828 And this body shape was called in the scholar's teaching, "Logos," the Logos that went out of God. In other words, a--a better word for it was a--what we call a theophany. “Theophany” is a human body that's glorified, not exactly with flesh and blood like it will be in it's glorified stage, but it is of a form of a human body that doesn't eat, neither does it drink, but it's--it's a body, a body that's waiting for us as soon as we leave this one. Now, in there, we enter into that body. And that's the kind of body that God was. For He said, "Let Us make man in Our own image and in our likeness."
THE FIRST CREATION OFMAN –AS THEOPHANY BEINGS • GENESIS 1:26,27- And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
THE SECOND CREATION OF MAN- AS FLESH BEINGS • GENESIS 2:7 - “And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
MAN FELL BY DISOBEDIENCE GENESIS 3:13-17 And the woman said,The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, because thou hast done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.Unto thewoman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. UntoAdam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed [is] the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life..
MAN, driven out of the Garden GENESIS 3:24 So He drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the Tree of Life.
REDEMPTION by the BLOOD • HEBREWS 9:22"And almostall things are by the law purged with BLOOD; and without shedding of blood is no remission." • LEVITICUS 4:24-25 - “And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the LORD: it [is] a sin offering. And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put [it] upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering.
Manifestations of God:1. Melchisedec HEBREWS 7:1-3 1 ¶ 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; 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; 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.” "Now, MELCHISEDEC, the King of Salem, the Priest of the Most High, the King of Peace, which was NONE OTHER THAN THE FOREPART of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and when HE met Abraham, He fed Abraham the COMMUNION and blessed him.. WHO WAS THIS PRIEST? NONE OTHER THAN THE INCARNATED LORD JESUS CHRIST. In His magnificent power He was the same ONE a LITTLE LATER ON, after HE met Abraham, and gave him, as being a COVENANT PEOPLE, the COMMUNION.“ (Melchisedec the Great Prince/ 55-0109m)
Melchisedec=Express Flesh CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD V-4 N-10 65-0822M When Jesus was manifested in the Old Testament in a theophany, in the Person of Melchisedec, not a priesthood, but the Person, the Man... See? For this Man Jesus had yet not been born, but He was in a theophany so He had no father, no mother. He was God Himself. He was manifested in the form of a Man called King of Peace and King of Righteousness. See King of Salem, which is? He was Melchisedec. He had neither father nor mother, beginning of days of ending of life. See? It was Jesus in a theophany in the form of a man.

Isaiah 9:6 & 7:14 Prophesies ISAIAH 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and His Nameshall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. ISAIAH 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Mary as incubator Of God’s Blood LUKE 1:30-31 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his nameJESUS. “He just used Mary for an incubator, but the Child belonged to God. Yeah, He was the Creator of both egg and the hemoglobin. And the hemoglobin, of course, come from the male sex; and He was the Creator of that. And Mary was brought this baby without any sensation, no more than the Holy Ghost overshadowing her and creating in her womb this Blood cell and egg that brought forth the Man, Christ Jesus.JEHOVAH.JIREH.PART.2 GRASS.VALLEY.CA JJ 73-106 62-0706
"And that great CREATOR BECAME my SAVIOUR, come down to a little BLOOD CELL, NOT through a man, but come VIRGIN to a woman; and took this little pollen from the woman, and FORMED HIMSELF A LITTLE HOUSE and LIVED IN IT. Oh, it - it ought to be striking. JEHOVAH over a pile of manure in a barn, crying: JEHOVAH in a MANGER of straw. That's an EVERLASTING SIGN."(Smyrnean Church Age/ 60-1206) “That Blood wasn't Jewish. That Blood wasn't Gentile. That was a creative Blood cell, God Himself.And now, through that Blood, making a propitiation for our sins, cleanses the believer, takes all of his sins away from him, as if he never had sinned. God puts them in the Sea of Forgetfulness.” CALLING.JESUS.ON.THE.SCENE CHICAGO.IL 63-0804E
Jesus is a MAN with a human body, soul and spirit I TIMOTHY 3:16And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh… "But the first thing YOU ARE a TRIUNE BEING, just like Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Father, Son and Holy Ghost is THREE TITLES going to ONE PERSON, which is JESUS CHRIST. And you’re SOUL, BODY and SPIRIT. But it takes THOSE THREE to MAKE YOU. With just ONE of them, you're NOT YOU.IT takes THREE to make YOU… YOU'RE living in a HOUSE - SOUL, BODY and SPIRIT. THAT'S THE WAY GOD LIVED in JESUS CHRIST, both SOUL, BODY and SPIRIT." ------ (Inner Veil/ 56-0121)
God’s Theophany made flesh LIFE.title JEFF.IN 57-0602 Then that theophany was made flesh in the Person Christ Jesus. And then all the fullness of the Trinity dwelt in Him, both Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all in that. ENTOMBMENT.title JEFF.IN ER 55-72 57-0420 For we know that in Him dwelt the Fullness of the Godhead Body. The entire Godhead was in Him. He was both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, but dwelt in a human form; the theophany of God, the great image of God that He made man in, then placed him in the earth... He had a body. God isn't without a body. God's got a body, and it looks like a man. THEOPHANY SOUL SPIRIT BODY WHO.IS.THIS.MELCHISEDEC V-5 N-10 65-0221E But you see, in order to stand temptation you had to bypass the theophany; you had to come down here in flesh to be tempted by sin.. But you bypassed the theophany and become flesh-man to be tempted by sin. (* 4 types of body: flesh, theophany, celestial, glorified bodies)
GOD BECAME HUMAN (Show us the Father/ 60-0731) "GOD is a SPIRIT. He had no hands till He become JESUS. He had no feet, arms, legs and so forth, till He become JESUS... He come to a stable, borned over a manure pile. And Little JEHOVAH crying in a manger, little JEHOVAH playing as a boy, little JEHOVAH toiling as a man, He crossed His cast with us. GOD BECOME HUMAN. When JESUS CHRIST was born, GOD was HUMAN on earth... He toiled and labored and felt for the teen-ager. He went through every temptation that we go through. GOD DID IT, that He might do His own judgment justice."
GOD BECAME HUMAN JOHN 8:56-59 56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw [it], and was glad. 57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yetfifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 59 Then took they up stones to cast at him. JOHN 10:30-33 30I and [my] Father are ONE. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.JOHN 14:8-9" PHILIP saith unto him, LORD, shew us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us. JESUS saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen ME hath seen the FATHER; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?"
THE 3 MAGI WORSHIPPED THE BABY MATTHEW 2:11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. Gold speaks of Deity. Gold represents Kingship. Myrrh is a bitter herb. Myrrh symbolizes death, a supreme sacrifice.- “He was wounded for our transgression, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed. (Isa. 53:5). Frankincense is a perfume, a sweet smelling savor. Frankincense speaks of service, a holy priesthood.
Jesus as 12-year old boy • LUKE 2:40-“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.” “And this little Boy, twelve-year-old child, no wisdom at all, why, but just a twelve-year-old Boy... The Father didn't dwell in Him at that time, because He come on the day when He baptized Him; he saw the Spirit of God coming down (See?), and went in Him.

RIVER JORDAN BAPTISM JOHN 1:32-34 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is He which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.” The Sacrifice must be washed
RIVER JORDAN BAPTISM POSSESSING.THE.ENEMY'S.GATES JEFF.IN 59-1108 “In the beginning of His ministry, when the Holy Spirit come upon Him at the baptism of John, and He become the Anointed Messiah... Now, remember, He was the Son of God when He was borned. He was God's virgin-born Son. But when He become Messiah, that's when the Holy Spirit come on Him, 'cause the "Messiah" means the "anointed one." See? And He was the Anointed One when the Holy Spirit came on Him.” ANOINTED MESSIAH 30 YEARS OLD SIGNIFICANCE Joseph was 30 years old when Pharaoh commissioned him to be governor of Egypt; David was 30 years old when made as king, Levites and Priests did the same.

AT MOUNT TRANSFIGURATION MATTHEW 17:1-5 1 ¶ And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him”. ADOPTION TIME
AT THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD.title JEFF.IN AD.2 60-0518 “His last cry, "Eli, Eli. My God, My God," That was a man. "Why hast Thou forsaken Me?“In the Garden of Gethsemane, the anointing left Him, you know, He had to die as a sinner. He died a sinner, not His sins, but mine and yours. That's where that love come in, how He took mine. “ RISING.OF.THE.SUN.title JEFF.IN V-3 N-12 65-0418M The Spiritleft Him in the Garden of Gethsemane; He had to die a man. “Remember friends, He didn't have to do that. That was God.God anointed that flesh, which was human flesh, and He didn't have... If He'd went up there as God, He'd have never died that kind of death; can't kill God.” MARK 14:32-36
AT THE CROSS OF CALVARY 1 TIMOTHY 3:16 "Hereby perceive we the LOVE [of GOD], because HE laid down HIS LIFE for us.“ ( Unveiling of God/ 64-0614m )"GOD veiled in JESUS to do the work of REDEMPTION at the cross... GOD could NOT DIE in the SPIRIT; He's ETERNAL. But HE had to put on a MASK and ACT the part of death. HE DID DIE, but He couldn't do it in His God FORM. He had to do it in SON form, as a Son of Man on earth.“ (Sir, We Would See Jesus / 62-0724)"Your BODY has to LIVE by DEAD SUBSTANCE for natural life, then you've got to have something DIE SPIRITUALLY to SAVE your SPIRITUAL LIFE. And GOD BECAME MATERIAL, FLESH, and DIEDthat WE MIGHT LIVE."
AT THE CROSS OF CALVARY (The Token/64-0308) "That's exactly what HE was. "We handled God," the Bible said. 1 Timothy 3:16, "Without controversy, great is the MYSTERY of Godliness, GOD was manifest in the FLESH." We handled HIM with our hands. THAT BODY WAS GOD. Certainly was. He was GOD all over, in the form of a human being." MATTHEW 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? MARK 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
JESUS WENT TO THE SOULS IN PRISON I PETER 3:18-20 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. ”

CHRIST’S ASCENSION ACTS 1:9-12 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

SPIRIT OF CHRIST COMING BACK The Promise AFTER 10 DAYS LUKE 24:49- “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” ACTS 1:8- “But ye shall receive POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” ACTS 2:1-4- And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Who is the HOLY GHOST?

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.” GALATIANS 4:6 - And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the SPIRIT of his SON into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

PAUL MEETING JESUS BACK TO PILLAR OF FIRE ACTS 9:1-5 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a LIGHT from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou ME? And he said, Who art thou, LORD? And the LORD said, I am JESUS whom thou persecutest: [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
