Unitarian ‘One God;’ Binitarianism ‘Dual God;’ Modulism Jesus-Only God; Catholic-Protestant Trinity; “The Godhead…” What do the Scriptures, Historical Facts, and Church Doctrine Say?
1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4, “Test all things: [especially all church doctrine;] hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil… Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God, because many false prophets [and teachers] have gone out into the world..”

It is not ‘antichrist’ to “test and prove” all doctrine, spiritual manifestations and other things, “to see whether they are from God;” it is a Scriptural commandment of God, (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 1:4.) Thus, not a single church doctrine or spiritual manifestation is exempt from obedience to God to “live circumspectly,” (1 Ths. 5:21, 1 Jn. 4:1-4; Eph. 5:15.) The true Word of God, studied in the context of all Scripture, is not manmade dogma and cannot divide the real body of Christ into denominations or divisions of Roman Catholic Christianity. It is idolatry and witchcraft, [making our own plans instead of following God’s will,] not to “examine ourselves, [and especially our denomination’s church forms, norms, and doctrines,] to see whether we are [truly] in the faith,” (2 Cor. 13:5; 1 Sam. 15:22-23.)
In this study, as in all my other work, I am not interested in following church dogma, or in drawing my own conclusions. I am only interested in exposing, as far as possible, the “Entirety of Scriptural Truth” compared to church dogma; nothing less, nothing more, (Ps. 119:160, K.j.v.) The combination of fact and “all truth” is therefore all I am able to give.
If one asks a Muslim what is the name of his god, he would answer surprised, “Why, Allah, of course!” The same is true of Buddhists, Hindus, etcetera. In conversation, without hesitation, real Hebrews would call God “HaShem,” which means, “The Name” or “The Holy.” However, should one ask Christians, “What is the Name of the God of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible?” many Roman Catholics, Reformed Protestants, Messianic Jews, Zionists, Armstrongians, Branhams, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Unitarians, Pentecostal-Charismatics, other Evangelicals, and all the rest, would hesitate and even refuse to call the God of the Bible “Jesus!”
Ž As a result, Messianic Judaism churches reject the Name of Jesus because He is supposedly “an impostor.” Most Roman Catholic orientated churches, as well as Reformed churches, speak of “God” but hardly ever call Him “Jesus.” Some call God “Adonis,” (Lord or Master.) Yahweh, (YHWH: I Am Who I Am,) seems to be God’s Name in the Old Testament. Those who call the God of the entire Bible “Jesus,” are instantly labelled as “The Jesus-Only Cult,” which rejects the Scriptural Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Other Unitarians or One-God adherents believe in the authority of Jesus but not in His Divinity, and usually get stuck on “names” such as Jehovah — a transliteration of YHWH, which they say, means “To Become,” while other say it means “The Lord” - as in The Lord Jesus Christ.
Why are Christians so utterly confused about the Name of the God of the Bible and Who He really Is? None of the early believers in Christ were confused about the Name and Nature of their God, Savior, and Redeemer. If someone is confused about the Name, Character, Being, and Word of God, it is certainly not God Himself.
This is why, in this study, I set out to understand the different interpretations and Names of God — and to determine the Real Name of the Highest, Most Holy God of the Bible.
Jesus Himself commanded in both the Old and New Testaments, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One [God. ] [You must worship the Only One True, Omnipresent, Almighty, Creator God of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Thus,] you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and with all your strength ...and your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these,” (Mark 12:29-31; Deut. 6:4-5.) Paul agreed in 1 Cor. 8:4-8, “Concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but One!”
Where do all the interpretations of God, and the arguments about His Name and the truth of His Word, come from? From the “mother” of all Christianity, (Acts 11:26,) the Roman Catholic Church, and her infiltrated masonic Jesuit and other orders, of course. It seems the pagan/Christianized deceptions of the ‘mother church’ are endless, as “all roads lead ‘back’ to end-time, church unity with Rome.”
When John Calvin, Martin Luther, Zwingley, Melanchthon, and their Protestant contemporaries came along during the Reformation, they supposedly left the ‘mother church’ to found their own Christian denominations on basic Roman Catholic Church structures and many of her core doctrines. At that time, co-reformer Michael Servetus, a medical doctor and theologian, disputed the Roman Catholic dogma of the trinity, which John Calvin adopted as the main doctrine of Protestantism. So, Servetus became one of the most prominent martyrs, whom John Calvin, father of the Dutch Reformed and many other Protestant churches, tortured to death at the stake for obeying God’s Scriptural commandment to “test everything… to see whether it is of God,” (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 1:1-4.) Half a millennium later, Protestant clergy are still telling their members that all Protestant doctrines and church structures were purged of Christianized, Roman Catholic paganism. However, it is an indisputable fact that many of the basic Roman Catholic church forms, norms, and doctrines, disguised as truth and light, are still functioning untested and unchallenged among Protestants of all denominations, exactly as John the Beloved prophesied in Rev. 17:3-18!

Tragically, as seen in the photos below, masonic orders orchestrated all the false doctrines of denominations, or divisions of Roman Catholic Christianity. They can never resist the urge to boast about their connections, influence, and works. Hence, photographs, masonic signs, church steeples, (the Babylonian-Christian symbol of masonic phallic and sun worship,) and pyramids always tell the hidden truth about church leaders and the secret origins of their incredibly false doctrines and prophecies.

Photo Above Left: The masonic pyramid near the grave of Jehovah’s Witnesses Founder, mason Charles Taze Russell. The inscription under the capstone of the pyramid is the Knights Templar symbol, the cross and the crown, (Christianized by even the Baptist Church and the Apostolic Faith Mission.) It reads, WATCHTOWER BIBLE & TRACT SOCIETY. Jehovah Witnesses’ Russell based his Watchtower teachings, (which are not teachings from the real Bible,) on masonic dogma.
Photo in the Middle: The masonic pyramid on the grave of “Pentecostal Oneness” of Jesus-Only William Branham; false prophet and preacher, who steered (and is still steering) thousands of gullible souls away from God’s Scriptural truth.
Photo on Right: Branham’s old “tabernacle,” where, above the upside down V-entrance that echoes the pyramid on his grave, a fading masonic sign is still faintly visible. Branham did not believe in the Scriptural Holy Spirit, His true gifts, or His miraculous power. Branham had an ‘angel’ under his command, (which is Scripturally impossible,) who did his miracles for him! Supernatural holy angels are mighty servants of God, but Scripturally and practically, they never replace the presence and work of the Holy Spirit, and they are subject to God Alone, not to human beings!

Above: The masonic obelisk on the grave of the prophetess and teacher Ellen G. White of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, who nullified most of the truth of God’s Word through her unscriptural ‘revelations.’ She taught that Michael the archangel was “pre-incarnate Jesus,” and active during Old Testament times as Jesus, which equates Jesus to the level of His created angels. Heb. 1:1-14 and the rest of Scripture clearly denies this teaching. God commanded that false prophets must be stoned to death to purge His people from their destructive ways, (Deut. Chapter 13.) Under the spiritual New Testament Covenant in Christ, physical stoning can be equated to exposing and rejecting — which is a definite New Testament commandment of God, (Eph. 5:11; 2 Jn. v. 9-10.)
DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF THE BEING OF THE GOD OF THE BIBLE
Modulism: This “Oneness” Pentecostal, or “Jesus Only” teaching in all its different forms actually excludes the Scriptural God of the Bible: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, (Mt. 28:19-20.) Modulism was/is also taught with different variations by mason William Branham; Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Seventh-Day Adventists, although most Adventists now hold to the doctrine of the trinity.
As Jesus-Only teachers say, the word “trinity” is really not in the truth of the Bible, and for good reason. Sadly, Modulism does not accept the Scriptural truth about the Biblical Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, (Mt. 28:19-20.) Their teaching that “God became flesh” or a human being called Jesus, “and dwelt among us,” is true, (Jn. 1:1-18; Heb. 1:1-14.) The Man Jesus Christ of the Bible is also called “The Son of God.” He was born as a complete human being, but He remained fully God at the same time, as they also believe. However, their teachings are much more complicated than to say they believe that Jesus is the Father and the Holy Spirit — which is actually not true. Looking at their doctrines, I don't think it is possible to understand how they could call themselves “Jesus Only” in the first place.
Ž Jesus-Only confusingly teaches, “The Son of God did not exist in a substantial [or literal] sense prior to the incarnation of Jesus of Nazareth, except as the Logos [Written Word] of God the Father.” Exactly when, in human terms, written Scripture came into being, no one knows. Some believe writing only began when God gave Moses the Old Testament/Covenant Law, written in stone. Of course, God only became a physical human being when Jesus was begotten. But from all eternity, Jesus God’s Son has been God Himself, not only since the written Word (Logos or Scripture) was established. Heb. 7:3 declares that Jesus is “without father or mother or genealogy; without beginning of days or end of life.” Unless there is “Scripture” in heaven as we humans understand it, it might be more correct to say that Jesus was the “Rhema” or spoken Word of God prior to “taking on flesh” to become a human being. 1 Jn. 1:1-14 proclaims, “In the beginning [eons before Genesis,] was the Word, [Jesus.] And the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made… (V. 14,) And the Word became flesh, [fully human,] and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory [Divinity] as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” God said in Heb. 1:14, “Your throne, O God [Jesus,] is forever and ever… (Verse 10,) You, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands…”
Ž Additionally, Jesus-Only dogma calls the incarnated human Man Jesus Christ simply another “mode or manifestation” of God, which is a being entirely separate from God. Wikipedia explains, “From he Oneness viewpoint, the Son is both distinct from the Father while being essentially one with the Father by virtue of his ontological [“being, nature, character, or existence”] oneness with the Father. Note that in both [oneness and trinity] views, [they] resolve the issues of [God’s] distinction of consciousnesses [or existence] to the principle of monotheism [One God] by attributing ontological oneness of being to the [separate] Father and His Son. The [only] difference is in the way they are distinct, and in which way they are one… Oneness Pentecostals maintain that the Father and Son are not actually distinct [separate] persons, [as in the trinity,] but rather, ‘they’ are distinct modes or manifestations [of God.]” William Branham taught, “God manifested Himself in mere titles or names, (or attributes) such as ‘Holy Spirit,’ ‘Father,’ or ‘Christ.’” This proves my point: Why do they call themselves “Jesus Only?” They could just as well have called themselves “Father Only,” which, in the ‘light’ of their descriptions of the Son, would have been more logic.
Ž Then, Modulism expand their strange understanding of their “one god” by making God into “Only one Person with [impersonal] attributes or manifestations such as wind and fire.” If this ‘person’ or god could be Jesus, that would annihilate the Father and the Holy Spirit, which allegedly make their Jesus “one god.” They allege, it wasn’t God the Holy Spirit Himself Who indwelt believers at Pentecost with the “signs” of wind and fire, from that Day until “the end of the world,” (Acts Chapter 2; 1 Cor. 6:15-20; Mt. 28:19-20.) As “wind and fire” cannot indwell people, it was actually only God in the “mode” of wind and fire that “came over them” as in the Old Testament Covenant, before the blood atonement of Jesus at Calvary, and thus before the “Spirit was given,” (Jn. 7:39.) That is why, in their foundation Movement, Pentecostalism, they have continual “outpourings,” “Pentecosts,” or “fillings” of their non-indwelling ‘holy spirit.’)
Modulism or Jesus-Only makes it difficult to understand the contextual, Scriptural truth about the God of the Bible. Some of their teachings might seem Scriptural, while they are not. They also make it impossible to understand how, if they really believe that Jesus is God, the Man Jesus was led into the wilderness by “wind,” and how He prayed to wind or fire in Gethsemane, etcetera. How can a mere ‘title or name’ without a character, (an intelligent personality,) or an ‘activity’ such as wind or fire be referred to as “He,” Who speaks and “convicts of sin, righteousness and judgement?” (Jn. 16:8.) How can wind or fire be “grieved” and “blasphemed against?” (Eph. 4:30; Mark 3:28-30; k.j.v.; Spirit Filled Bible 1980.) It is clear that their ‘holy spirit’ cannot be The Holy Spirit of the Bible. The Holy Spirit of the Bible is the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent (ever-present,) Creator God, Who indwells all His sincere disciples since that day at Pentecost, until “the end of the world,” (Gen. 1:2; Mt. 28:19-20.)
