Oneness prophet
QUESTION Why was he and all the Jewish prophets oneness?
ANSWER The first and greatest commandment of the law, according to Jesus, demanded it.  Mark 12:29 & 30 with Matthew 22: 36-38. 
WHAT LAW? Deuteronomy 6: 4-9 Hear, O Israel, the LORD our god is one LORD.  They must believe in one god and love him with all their heart, soul and might; their children must be taught this at all times. 

Read Scofields Footnotes under Deut. 6: 4-9.  These scriptures in Hebrew Liturgy are known as the SH'MAH, (pronounced shemah)


The Apostles and authors of the New Testament, being Jewish, were taught the SH'MAH from childhood on up.  They could not possibly believe in a trinity consisting of three separate and distinct persons.  They knew that Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh.  1 Timothy. 3:16

The International Encyclopedia, Vol. 16, pg 221 states that the trinity did not form any part of the apostles' teaching.

Emil Brunner, considered the foremost scholar of the twentieth century, said the idea of three separate persons is incredulous.  He said that would be Tri-theistic or Three Gods

Isaiah - 
what saith thou?

Holy one

1.  Isaiah. 1:4 - Here Isaiah states that the LORD is the HOLY One of Israel.  In the New Testament Jesus is known as the Holy One of Israel.  This term is used over fifty times in the bible.  Never once was the term Holy Two or Holy Three ever used.  Isn't that strange trinitarians?

Immanuel - god with us

2.  Isaiah. 7:14 - He says that a virgin would conceive and bring forth a son and his name would be called Immanuel.

This was fulfilled in Matthew 1:23.  When Christ was born "they shall call his name  Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."  Yes, Jesus was God manifest in the flesh.  1 Timothy 3:16

mighty god (son)

3.  Isaiah 9:6 - Unto us a child is born and a son is given (Jesus).  He shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.  Isaiah saw him as Immanuel, God with us and now as the Mighty God and Everlasting Father.  No trinity here

one god & one saviour

4.  Isaiah 43: 10 & 11. -  Vs 10: Ye are my witnesses saith the LORD, 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. 
Vs 11: I, even I, am the LORD and beside me there is no saviour.  Yes, Jesus Christ of the New Testament is the LORD Jehovah of the Old Testament. 

STRONGS, 3068 - the Jewish name of God is Jehovah, the LORD.  When LORD in the Old Testament is spelled with all capitals it means Jehovah.  It occurred 7,000 times. 

STRONGS, 2962 - Kuros, in Greek - In the New Testament, when Lord is spelled with a capital L, it always means Jehovah.  It is used that way 800 times in the New Testament. 

Isaiah - 
tell us more

first and last

5.  Isaiah 44: 6 & 8 - Vs 6:  I am the first and the last and beside me there is no God.   Vs 8:  Is there a God beside me?  Yea, there is no God; I know not any.   Trinitarians know more than God.

Only one creator

6.  Isaiah 44:24  Jehovah said, I am the LORD that Maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the Earth by Myself.  
Hear! Hear! Hear!

Col 1:14-17 - for by him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in Heaven and Earth.  He is before all things and by Him all things exist.  What further proof do we need that Christ and God are One?  Thank you Isaiah and Paul for further confirmation on the oneness of God

Malachi 2:10 agrees with Isaiah that we have only one father and one creator.


who is equal to god

7.  Isaiah 46:5 - To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

The Answer:  Philippians 2:6 - Jesus, who being in the form of God, (like him) thought it not robbery to be equal with God. 

Isaiah - 
opens our eyes

his holy arm

8.  Isaiah 52: 6 & 10:  Vs 6:  Isaiah prophesies concerning the day of Christ.  In that day they shall know his name.  Vs. 10:  "the Lord hath made bare his holy arm and they shall see the salvation of our God

Isaiah 53:1 - To whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?  This entire chapter tells us that the arm of the LORD is Jesus.  Read it carefully and prayerfully.

The husband's bride

9.  Isaiah 54: 5 - Thy Maker is thine husband: the LORD of hosts is his name, and they Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.

The church is now the bride of Christ.  What an honor to be the bride of God of the whole earth.  His name is Jesus.  Are you ready for the marriage supper of the lamb?

hated for his name's sake

10.  Isaiah 66:5 - Your brethren that hated you and cast you out for my name's sake.  He shall appear to your joy and they shall be ashamed. 

Mark 13:13 - Jesus said, "Ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake." 

Many times we who baptize in Jesus name have been refused fellowship by our Trinitarian brothers and vilified openly.  We want them to know that we will always love them.
