Variations of the definition of a Trinity have been around a long time. Did God establish it, or was it man's attempt to reconcile something he could not grasp? Is it possible a definition of the Trinity perpetuated for some 1,700 years might be completely wrong?

People have wrestled with the concept of God since people began being people. How did the cosmos come into being? What is God? Who is God? What powers hath a God and what powers have man? We seem to live in bodies of flesh with thinking mechanisms that can be trained or controlled somehow by us. We speak of our 5-senses, our identity, our separateness. We give our voice, our being, to something each day, but what are we exchanging a day of our lives for? While all our advancement seems to give us more understanding of the cosmos, why do so many people who decide they know the right God want to convert, control, or kill those who don't think agree? Why is man trying to control man?

Have we defined God out of our lives here on earth by our definitions of God? Have our minds formed brittle images of how God might operate and we projected it on each other? Have we been acting out daily an existence on earth by a rigid understanding of what we are, forcing ourselves into the mold of our thinking? Does our thinking form molds? Are we molding each other in/with/by our thinking? Are we duping ourselves? Are we clutching to the past to determinate our future?

Maybe God does not work like we thought. Maybe there's a bigger cosmic picture than the hundreds of Christian bishops could agree on in the year 325 when they met at the Council of Nicaea and formalized their definition of the Trinity into the Nicene Creed. Did they ask God? Did they let God speak? Did they speak their understanding for God – and let God remain silent? Has religion usurped the voice of God – for millennia?

Although millions of people have spoken, and speak, the Nicene Creed; does that make it correct? Do big numbers validate the definition? Does the fact that something was carried on for almost 2,000 years make it correct? What is this thing about the father, the son, and the spirit? How can three be one or in one or have millions just kept swallowing the "blue pill" each week for centuries? Who's willing to take the "red pill" and learn of a new reality? Or was reality taken from us?

Let's explore something differently and not be afraid of what we might find. Explorers do that you know. An adventurer may not be fearless, but the courage to learn anew and experience it outweighs the fear inbred by others.

This is your invitation to explore the concept of the Trinity, winding your way through the passages of this booklet and the associated ones of The New Beginning Series to formulate a new understanding, one that YOU form, not relying on the passages of the past. Unravel a lot of things as you an adventurer become.

    • The Trinity Revealed -1 An Introduction The New Beginnings Series Dr. Theodore Cottingham University of The New Covenant Press Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA www.UNC.bz
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 2 The New Beginning Series The New Beginning Series booklets provide a foundation for taking us beyond the past, into a new identity of who we are, what we are, where we came from, and why we are here on earth. Jesus the Pattern - 1 The great commission is to do what Jesus did right here right now, regardless of our vocation or label. Jesus did not give us the message, he became it, for us to do the same. Jesus the Pattern - 2 Building on the Jesus the Pattern Booklet 1, Jesus the Pattern -2 opens our eyes to see Jesus as a radical, a reformer, an educator, and a revolutionary. Jesus lived before us a message that visible empirical reality is not reality at all. The Priesthood of All Believers - 1 Every woman, every man, every girl, and every boy; of every nation tribe and tongue, have the privilege of operationalizing the priesthood to God and each other. The New Covenant - 1 The New Covenant is promise that involves process that transforms us, culminating in us experiencing resurrection that transcends the classical physics of this world. The Kingdom of Heaven - 1 The Kingdom of Heaven is true reality, the Promised Land, promised to each of us. Every person of every nation tribe and tongue has the privilege to enter before physical death. The Trinity Revealed - 1 Definitions of God abound, and the concept of the Trinity has been a popular one. But what is it? What does it have to do with us today? These publications and more are available free from the University of The New Covenant. Tulsa, Oklahoma. See www.UNC.bz. Thank you.

Who is God? What powers hath a God and what powers have man? We seem to live in bodies of flesh with thinking mechanisms that can be trained or controlled somehow by us. We speak of our 5-senses, our identity, our separateness. We give our voice, our being, to something each day, but what are we exchanging a day of our lives for? While all our advancement seems to give us more understanding of the cosmos, why do so many people who decide they know the right God want to convert, control, or kill those who don't think agree? Why is man trying to control man? What is going on in our universe that we do not know? What can we not see? Why can't we see? Why do we seem to be subject to gravity? Time? Pressure? Words?? Why do words affect us so powerfully? If there is a God does God speak? What kind of voice does God have? Does God "broadcast"? What kind of words does God use? Does God use OUR definitions, or God's? What if God's vocabulary is different, has different reference points, coordinates universes? What if God's words are not transmitted by sound waves? What if syllable are not needed? What about punctuation? Are we limiting God's communication to us by what we speak, how we speak, and what we let come through our mind or mouth? Do we have sensory mechanisms built in to us the sense God – hear God? And if so, what kind of diction and grammar might God use? Do we limit God's communication system or did God limit ours, or do we limit each other's? What if there is a God that desires to communicate with us and teach us about God? Would God teach us the cosmic story, not the one that man bungled-up, bundled-up, and projected into religion? What if every religion is right and every religion is wrong? What if the celestial cosmic story is very different than what ANY religion decided upon? Is religion not an attempt to codify and control, set rules, determine and dictate – what they think is right, to others? Does God need religion? If there is a God – OF LOVE – in the universe, don't you think God would want to communicate with us? Directly? Have we defined God out of our lives here on earth by our definitions of God? Have our minds formed brittle images of how God might operate and we projected it on each other? Have we been acting out daily an existence on earth by a rigid understanding of what we are, forcing ourselves into the mold of our thinking? Does our thinking form molds? Are we molding each other in/with/by our thinking? Are we duping ourselves? Are we clutching to the past to determinate our future?
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 5 Might the definitions we have held to so tightly from the past, that gives us our religious stances – be wrong? Misunderstood? Misinterpreted? Part right, part wrong? Limiting us? Limiting our participation in the cosmic story? Maybe God does not work like we thought. Maybe there's a bigger cosmic picture than the hundreds of Christian bishops could agree on in the year 325 when they met at the Council of Nicaea and formalized their definition of the Trinity into the Nicene Creed. Did they ask God? Did they let God speak? Did they speak their understanding for God – and let God remain silent? Has religion usurped the voice of God – for millennia?

An adventurer may not be fearless, but the courage to learn anew and experience it outweighs the fear inbred by others. This is your invitation to explore the concept of the Trinity, winding your way through the passages of this booklet and the associated ones of The New Beginning Series to formulate a new understanding, one that YOU form, not relying on the passages of the past. Unravel a lot of things as you an adventurer become. Become an explorer that explores this subject for yourself, looking at the bible verses presented herein to see what they are really saying, rather than reading all this through the historical lens that tint and taint. Refrain from trying to determine the outcome of your adventure before you actually do the exploring. Value the adventure. Introduction A simple definition of the Trinity seems to be elusive. Some people speak of the trinity being God the father, Jesus the son, and the holy spirit. Are there three entities in God or is God just one entity. Does the nature of God have three forms? Is God a triune God sharing power or position? Is each component equal with the other? Are all three God or is God one. And who is the "Lord"? Is the "Lord" God the father or God the son or God the spirit? How can one be three or three in one? If Jesus' position was God the son then did Jesus have God the spirit as his spirit or his own? Did God the father live THROUGH God the son? Was there one common spirit between them? And if so, how did separation take place for the son to be separate from the father, and then become flesh? Can God the father be separate from God the son? Can God the father be separate from Go his own spirit? Is there hierarchy in the Godhead? Who's ruling who? Or is it equal? Is the story right or wrong? Are we asking the right questions? If we are not asking the right
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 6 questions we may not get the right answers, or might we become satisfied with the answers to the wrong questions? If God has a son does God have a daughter? For many Christians the concept of the Trinity is never questioned. Many assume it was figured out some 1,700 years ago and simply Did God the father impart part of him into the son? the It is often spoken of as three in one yet all three being still separate, with the very definitions offered appearing to contradict themselves. The ambiguity that exists in the definitions of the "three separate and distinct entities in one" seem only to have increased with time rather than become clarified. Genesis 1:27 God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him. Considering the verse above stating that we are made in the image of God, along with knowing that Jesus came in the flesh as a man, we often draw the conclusion that God the father looks similar to us, like we look. But then Jesus tells us that while he was yet still on the earth in the flesh, that he and the father were one. John 10:30 Jesus said, I and my Father are one. In John 17 Jesus makes it clear that he and his father were actually in each other. John 17:21 That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you. If they both looked like us, like humans, how could they both be in each other? And the holy spirit, often called the spirit of God, what exactly is that, or who is he? Adventure and exploration: Adventure out of the traditional box of interpretations that tries to create God our father in our image. And remember the very nature of adventure is risk, and the very nature of exploration is to learn. Other key aspects of adventure and exploration is the foreknowledge that we may not end up where we thought we would when we set out to explore! We take that risk. We choose to mature. We choose to learn. We choose to let God reveal to us the Trinity. Let it no longer be a mystery. In our quest for the revelation of the Trinity, let us continuously ask God to reveal the full understanding of the Trinity to us, as well as what this means for us, and how we should respond.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 7 Let us seek God our father directly for answers as we quest to know the Trinity. Trust our father to answer, believing that inquiry of him in these matters is good and acceptable to him, yea even delightful. Matthew 7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD…. Let us begin exploring. Father Father is in all Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Note that father is not just in Jesus, he is in all of us! Does this scripture above imply, insinuate, or even allow for the interpretation that father is just in some people that believe a certain way? The answer is no. Father is in us all! So where is he? Father is in his body. Who is his body? All people; people of every nation, tribe, and tongue. Where is father in our body? In our every gene, in our DNA, in our mind and consciousness. Father is intangible yet his imprint is stamped into every aspect of our entire being. Why? Father created us. We are made in his image. Father is not made in our image, but we are made in his. All of father's characteristics and attributes are inherently and innately part of us. In fact, we are not existent without him! We only have life because of him. It is in him that we exist at all. Acts 17:28 For in God we live, and move, and have our being…. Who is the "we" in the verse above? Every person of every nation, tribe, and tongue. Father has placed himself in every person. Father has no form Consider these scriptures describing father.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 8 John 6:46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. John 5:37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form 1 Timothy 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Timothy 6:15-16 …God…is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. 1 John 1:5 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. 1 John 4:12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. Colossians 1:15 The son is the image of the invisible God. Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. Therefore, let us realize; father is not visible. Father is invisible, unseen, spirit, eternal, immortal, light, transparent. Therefore Father does not look like us. He is transcendent; not subject to time, space, gravity, or dimensions as we know them. Thus father has no form. "Father has no form" is a more important phrase describing our father than to say he is invisible, because people have often thought he was invisible to humans, but that he had a form; we just couldn't see it. Not so. Father has no form. This is fundamental to understanding the Trinity. Our natural thinking is inclined to adhere to the idea that our father in heaven looks like we do, but that is not the case. Isaiah 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. The first part of Isaiah 53:2 speaks about the son, but we know the son has form. The second part of that verse describes father. Let us realize then that: Father has no form. This addresses how Jesus could say he and his father were one. The father and the son were not two distinctly different humans; father is not a human. Father is spirit and light.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 9 Father, having no form, has no other body other than the son. Thus having father's spirit and having father is synonymous. Jesus was the first person to let father teach him that father was not external to him, but in him. Jesus knew the things he did not because he was born knowing them, but he learned the voice of his father, and father taught him. John 8:28 Jesus said, as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. Father taught Jesus that he had father's spirit within him, that they were not separate, but the two of them were one. Thus the father and the son are not separate at all, they are one. The father's body is the son's body. The son's body is the father's body. Father reveals the son, the son reveals the father. Father reveals himself in the son. The son reveals to other sons that father is in every person. Luke 10:22 No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Son Jesus chose to reveal to us the father, that father had no form but lived in the body of his son. Father and son are one, and everyone that has the son has the father, for they are one! This is stated by John in the following verses: 1 John 2:23 Whoever confesses the Son has the Father, too. 2 John 1:9 He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son. This dispels forever the notion, idea, concept, and image, that God the father is a "being" that looks similar to how Jesus looked. Father is unseen, invisible, spirit, eternal, immortal, light, transparent. He is transcendent; not subject to time, space, gravity, or dimensions as we know them. Therefore Father does not look like us in our flesh bodies. Father has no form.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 10 Father: there is only one Now let us again review that Ephesians 4:6 verse to consider another aspect of father. Ephesians 4:6 There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. There is only one father. That's why the following scripture is so important: Matthew 23:9 Jesus said, call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Thus Jesus is making it very clear who our father is. Our real father, the source of our origin is our father in heaven. There is only one father of all of us. All of us have the very same father; the very same origin. Father is the name of our family Two verses in Ephesians tell us that "the whole family in heaven and earth" is named father! Father is the name of "the whole family in heaven and earth!" Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. Thus our father is not one "being" as we think of a person, but revealed himself as being in all of his sons and daughters, those that are in earth, and those that are in heaven; part of the cloud. Hebrews 12:1 We also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses…. How can this be that father is in all persons in heaven and earth? Father is his voice Father has no form, but has voice. This is confirmed in numerous scriptures that record that father has spoken, and that he desires to be allowed to speak to every man, every woman, every boy, and every girl; of every nation, tribe, and tongue. Hebrews 12:25 See that you refuse not him who speaks. We have already reviewed the scriptures that state that father has no form, yet he is in all of us. Father is his voice.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 11 Our father desires greatly to speak to each of us in a relationship of dialogue where he teaches us directly, himself, who he is, who we are, where we are, what we have, and how to operate in the hear and now bringing the kingdom of heaven here in the earth. Isaiah 30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard. Can you surrender to the heart of your father? Consider: father wants us to know his voice not to subject us to him, but that he might teach us that we are priests and kings! Exodus 19:5-6 tells us father's desire and motive for wanting to be known: If you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, then you shall be a special treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: and you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. Father reveals his love for us through his voice inside of us, to us. This is how he teaches us, nurtures us, gives us ideas and revelation. This is how he reveals the kingdom of heaven to us. He speaks to our mind. Father reveals himself to us from the inside out. Father creates with his voice. Father communes with his voice. Father reveals himself through his voice. The way that man has always known God our father, is through his voice. Therefore, regarding the Trinity, let us surrender to the revelation that father is not external to us, but inside of us each one, and makes himself known to us directly by his voice speaking directly into our mind. Father is one mind Father is one mind in heaven and on earth. How? The kingdom of heaven exists in heaven and on earth. All the people that have entered the kingdom of heaven make up one mind, and that mind is the mind of our father; that mind is the Christ mind. 1 Corinthians 2:16 we have the mind of Christ. Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Father is the mind of Christ, the Christ mind; thus has no form. Can you see now how that father is unseen, invisible, spirit, eternal, immortal, light, transparent, transcendent; not subject to time, space, gravity, or dimensions as we know them? Jesus said to us that he and his father had become one.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 12 This helps us understand Jesus' prayers in John 17 about us being one with his father, and how he prayed that we would be one with his father, and why Jesus wanted all of us to know that we had the very same father as he had. We become one with the father through a process of surrender to father. Father father's mind, the Christ mind. We have the mind of Christ in us but until we surrender to our father, our flesh mind exalts itself over the Christ mind that is within us. We take thought of ourselves in logic and reason that we judge as reality, when the true reality of father is inside us; in our mind. That is why Jesus told us to realize the kingdom of heaven is within each of us. Luke 17:21 …for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. How is the kingdom of God within you? Our father is God the father, and father is not separate from his kingdom, the kingdom of God. The mind that father created us with was his mind. Genesis 1:27 God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him. When we surrender completely to our father, we become one with him. Our mind becomes one with his mind and in so doing, we allow our father to communicate with us directly, not going through another person, and not subjecting what father says and shows us to the dictates of the kingdom of this world. For as we become one with father, he teaches us reality consists of himself, and the kingdom of this world is not real. Jesus was constantly revealing reality to us; the reality of the kingdom of our father that is true reality. That reality is inside of us, in our mind, and all about us. Jesus become one with the father in that they become of one mind. Jesus prayed in John 17 that we would become one with father just like he was one with the father, and that we would come into a oneship with him and father where we he and father both would be in us the same way that he and the father were in each other. John 17:11 Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are. John 17:21 That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in thee. Jesus surrendered to his father's love to the point that Jesus let the voice of "him who speaks" who was already inside of him, speak and teach him who he was. He had the mind of his father, and he let father's mind in him speak into his mind to receive the revelation that he was the son of God, a priest, and a king! Romans 15:6 …with one mind …glorify God the Father.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 13 Father is one mind, the mind of Christ, the Christ mind. Father is his presence John 8:38 I am telling you what I have seen in Father's presence. How was it that Jesus "saw" "in father's presence," if father has no form? Father is his presence. His presence is transcendent, yet he spoke and showed Jesus many things. How? Father is one mind as stated above. Father is his very presence. The presence of father is father. Father is formless. His presence is formless. Yet we sense his presence. The presence speaks. The presence makes itself felt. The presence reveals the past, present, and future. The presence reveals the kingdom of heaven. Father communicates with us through his voice, through words, through thoughts and feelings. There are times when we feel father's presence that all we can do is weep, or fall to the floor, fall on the ground "as though dead." Why do we have such a response to our father's presence? 1 John 4:8 …God is love. Love is seen in many ways, yet love may be most known by…being feeling it. When we encounter it, it seems so substantive, almost tangible. It affects our inner being, our thoughts, our actions. Our emotions respond with softness. Sometimes we seem to melt. In his presence is fullness of joy. Psalm 16:11 … in your presence is fullness of joy. Psalm 22:3 tells us that God inhabits our praises of him. 1 Chronicles 16:27 Glory and honor are in his presence. Father is his presence. Recap: Father is not an entity like we think of an individual human being. Having no form or comeliness, he exists in his body, which is our body. In our being he placed his being. In each of us he placed his mind. Thus father, as one, one "being," is many who have surrendered to father's mind already in them.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 14 So now we understand that the scriptures that speak of God being one are not describing God as being in a form like unto a person being one personage of some sort, but that God our father is one mind in many people, in heaven and on earth, that have surrendered to his mind becoming preeminent in them. Thus God the father is many, who are one: one mind. Son Ephesians 4:4 There is one body. Resist the temptation to think we as individual people are separate from each other. We are not separate from each other. 1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13 Each of us is a part of the one body of Christ. Since there is only one body, that one body is the son. That one son is comprised of many members. Just as God the father is one, in many; the Son is one, in many. "The only begotten son" is not one individual or person, the only begotten son is one body made of many people; in fact, all peoples of every nation tribe and tongue! 1 Corinthians 10:17 For we being many are one body. 1 Corinthians 12:20 So then there are many parts, but only one body. The one is only son of God the father is one body consisting of all of us. Romans 12:4-5 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. Let there be a complete redefinition in your mind of who the son is, with the son being one body consisting of all of us. Every single one of us are the son of God our father as much as Jesus was. The very same way Jesus was the son, we are the son. There is one body. 1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 15 Jesus reveals his father The son reveals the father. Jesus did. And Jesus is our pattern. Consider the following words of Jesus. See how he yearned for us to comprehend what he was showing us and telling us. John 10:30 I and my Father are one. John 14:7 If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him. John 10:38 believe that the Father is in me, and I in him. John 8:19 …if you had known me, you should have known my Father also. John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father… John 14:10-11 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 dwells in me. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me. John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. John 16:32 I am not alone, because the Father is with me. John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee. John 6:32 Then Jesus said, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. John 12:49-50 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. The son reveals the father. Jesus reveals his father is our father Scriptures tell us there is only one father, and he is father of all of us:
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 16 Ephesians 4:6 There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Acts 17:26 And God has made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth. Jesus told us directly that his father is our father. John 20:17 Jesus said, …I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Jesus affirmed for us to always remember that God the father is our father when he gave us what we often call the Lord's prayer. Consider how it begins: Matthew 6:9 Jesus said, This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Notice that Jesus not only gave us a prayer that should remind us every time we pray it that God is our real and true father, Jesus also instructed us that the name father is "hallowed," which means holy and consecrated. Not only did Jesus tell us multiple times that his father is our father, and told us to pray a prayer that reminded us that our father's name is holy and to be hallowed, Jesus directly tells us to call no man on earth our father, for "one is your father, in heaven." Matthew 23:9 Jesus said, Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Here are a few more statements where Jesus was repetitively emphasizing to us that our father is God the father, the very same father as his father. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 6:1 Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matthew 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are you not much better than they? Let us surrender to the revelation that Jesus was giving us and spoke so directly about; that his father is our father too. There is but one father, and he is father to each of us. Our origin is father, just as Jesus' origin was. Jesus revealed to us who our real father is.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 17 Jesus went to great lengths to convey to us that he was not the only son, but that we all are the son, and that God the father was our father just as he was Jesus' father. And then if there could be any doubt that Jesus was intent on all of us on earth knowing that we have the same father as he did, and that we on earth all have the same father, consider this radical and extremely clear directive about who our father is. Matthew 23:9 Jesus said, And don't call any person on earth father, because you have one Father, who is in heaven. The definition of son must change. Jesus' father is our father. We are his son. Jesus reveals true sonship The primary, permeating, and preeminent attribute of Jesus' sonship is surrender. Jesus could have done a lot of things that he didn't do. Jesus could have said a lot of things he didn't say. Why did he not do and say many things? He surrendered his power and authority to that of his father. Jesus chose not the path of building his kingdom, but of revealing his fathers kingdom. He walked drawing not men to himself, but to his father, who often spoke words through Jesus that we think were Jesus' words speaking about himself. But let us realize he and his father had become one, and the words Jesus spoke were not his, but what father gave him. Jesus said in John 14:10 the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. In John 14:24, Jesus said, …the words which you hear are not mine, but the Father's which sent me. Although it has been tradition to attribute the words that Jesus said Jesus, let us come into a new understanding that Jesus was speaking the words of the father, that father gave him to give us. Jesus had learned to let father teach him. Isaiah 50:4 He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. Isaiah 54:13 And all thy children shall be taught of the lord. John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Is that not surrender? Jesus gave us not just a bunch of words from himself, he gave us his father's words. Jesus forsook all earthly ambition.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 18 Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who… made himself of no reputation. Jesus did not let his mind reign over the mind of his father that was in him. Jesus died to the works that he could do apart from the father, to let the works already done flow through him. For the works were done before the foundation of the world. How did Jesus let? He acknowledged that he had no power or authority to do, say, or accomplish anything, except what father gave him. John 5:19 Jesus said, the Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. Jesus learned that what father wanted for him was far greater than he could ever want for himself. He learned that father would speak and teach him about all things, and Jesus let father teach him by spending time with him and letting father speak inside of him to his mind. The more Jesus let father speak to his mind, the more Jesus' mind became the mind of Christ, until the point at which it became the mind of Christ fully formed within Jesus. This is what Jesus is revealing to us, and when he says, follow me, he is saying let this process that I let, form you as it formed me, in the very likeness of my father, that enabled me to do the works I did and say the things I said. John 17:21-23 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one. What did father desire for Jesus? That Jesus become one with him. And that is what Jesus desires for us, to become one with them, the very same way that Jesus became one with father, we become one with father. Is this not sonship revealed? The motive of all the words and actions of the son is to glorify father. John 17:1 Jesus said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee. True sonship always glorifies father. John 15:10 I have kept my Father's commandments. John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 19 John 17:4 Jesus said to father, I have glorified thee on the earth. Jesus is our pattern. Jesus reveals his sonship is our sonship John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. We are not of this world. We came from where Jesus came from. In fact, the very same way that Jesus was not of this world, we are not of this world. John 17:14 Jesus said, … they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. John 17:16 Jesus said, They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. In our being not of this world, we were of the same place. We came from the same place. We all came from where Jesus came from, where Jesus originated, before he appeared on earth. We came into the world the very same way that Jesus did. John 17:18 Jesus said, As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. Recap: The scriptures that speak of there being only one son, address not just Jesus, but the one son that all of us are. The one son has many members, and we are all members of each other. All of us are the one, that makes up the one. We are part of each other in a way that has eluded us. And we must regain it. Consider how he used the term "son of man" to describe himself so often. Jesus used that term to emphasize to us that he be identified in the same category of man as we are. We are son of man, as in being part of mankind. Jesus also knew that father called Ezekiel "son of man" numerous times referring to Ezekiel. Let us surrender to the revelation that every one of us is the son of God. And most every time the scriptures speak about the son, those scripture scriptures are addressing you. Revelation 21:7 He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. There is not "only one" son but one son being many members.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 20 You are God's son regardless of your religion. God created you, gave you his spirit, and you surrender to that understanding to walk in it, in holiness and righteousness; else you reject it. Consider the following verses giving emphasis to the fact that these statements are not qualified in any manner. Matthew 25:37-40 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me. Spirit John 4:24 God is spirit. Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one spirit. Since there is only one body and only one spirit, and God is spirit, then the one spirit is God's spirit. God is his spirit. This is congruent with the following verses that declare that all the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwells in Christ, and we are complete in Christ. Colossians 2:8-10 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in him. Being complete, we all have the spirit of God in us, and the fullness of the Godhead bodily within us. That applies to absolutely every single one of us of every creed, culture, nation, tribe, and tongue! Whether we recognize that and allow God to be who he is in us and through our thoughts and our behavior, is a separate issue. Let us see that we are God's temple and the temple of God is holy: 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? …for the temple of God is holy, the temple you are. Thus the way that we speak of our spirit or man's spirit should be re-formed. We are actually created truly in the image of God our father. Our father created us as the son. Every single one of are the son. To every single one of us he gave us his spirit. How much of his spirit did he give to each of us? John 3:34 …God gives not the Spirit by measure unto him.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 21 Thus the spirit of God is given to every person without measure, without limit. The fullness of God's spirit he has given to each of us. John 14:16-17 Jesus said, And I will pray to Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. The comforter that Jesus was speaking of was the spirit of truth which is the spirit of father, our father. Father has given each one of us his spirit and Jesus was letting us know. The spirit of truth is our father, the comforter that cannot be seen, the mind of Christ, that has no form. 1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Let us continue to explore what all it is that God has freely given to us. Jesus reveals Father's spirit Jesus gave us words that are spirit and life. John 6:63 …the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. What did Jesus give us in the words he gave us? Spirit. And life. Speaking to father in these verses: Jesus said, John 17:8 I have given to them the words which you gave me…. Jesus said, John 17:14 I have given them your word…. Jesus said, John 17:17 …your word is truth. The words that Jesus gave us are truth that reveal the spirit of our father and give us life of the tree of life, father's life; his divine nature. Father's divine nature 2 Peter 1:3-4 According as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature. How is that divine nature that we are to partake of exhibited? By the words we speak. The words we speak are a verbal expression of something within us. The words we write
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 22 are a written expression of something in us. What is that something that is sourcing our words? It is our spirit that we have subjected to the lordship of our father, else it is our mind that we have exalted over his spirit. Ruwach is the Hebrew word that was often translated in the bible to be sprit. Its' definitions include: wind; breath, life, spirit, courage, mind. Pneuma is the Greek word that was often translanted in the bible to be spirit. Its' definitions include: a current of air, breath, breeze; spirit, angel, God, life, mind. Father's spirit is his presence. His presence becomes preeminent in our life when we let it. As we surrender to the presence of God in us, his presence becomes more and more aware to us. Something about his presence brings transformation. His presence in us transforms us into his image. We have already discussed that we look like father for the son is the express image of the father. Yet us in our flesh do not look like father for father is not flesh and blood; father is not visible. Father is invisible, unseen, spirit, eternal, immortal, light, transparent, transcendent; not subject to time, space, gravity, or dimensions as we know them. When father's spirit births us by his spirit, we become as he is. 1 John 3:2 …we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. Becoming as he is, we become as father is: invisible, unseen, spirit, eternal, immortal, light, transparent, transcendent; not subject to time, space, gravity, or dimensions as we know them. Jesus reveals to us that all of God is in each of us, but being born of the flesh, there is yet another process that we surrender to that is necessary for us to become as he is, and thereby entering the kingdom of heaven here and now. John 3:6-7 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, you must be born again. This is the process of what Jesus described in the bible as being "born again by the spirit of God." Father's spirit rebirths us Are you willing to let father do a new thing in you?
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 23 Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. What is this new thing that you can allow father to do in you? Jeremiah 31:22 for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man. What is the new thing that God has created in the earth? A new creature, a new creation, that comes about by experiencing what is called the new birth. This new birth comes about in ultimate surrender to father whereby his spirit "compass's" us. It encompasses us; it envelopes us, as if it were a woman's womb. Let us understand this is our father's spirit enveloping us, with us as being in his womb, and then being "born again" by it, by father, by his spirit; that we have so completely surrendered to that we become as he is, in this world. 1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that …as he is, so are we in this world. How is our love made perfect that we in this world become as father is? We do just what Jesus did. Jesus is our pattern. Philippians 2:5-7 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. All of us on earth can look in a mirror and see that we have been made in the "likeness of men." But that is not the real us any more than Jesus' flesh was the real him. Jesus was not of this world, as indicated in John 8:23 Jesus said, I am not of this world. Let us realize that we are not of this world, just like Jesus was not of this world. For that is what Jesus revealed to us in the following verses. John 17:14 Jesus said, I have given them your word father; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Jesus let us know that he Jesus existed in a glorious state of being, even before the world earth existed. John 17:5 Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 24 Jesus reveals we came from where he came from before the world was formed, and that all of us have come into the world for the same purpose: John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. Jesus became the firstborn of many brethren to declare the love of our father to us, so that we will follow in his footsteps becoming born of the spirit just like he became, that we will then reveal the love of our father to others. Romans 8:29 … that Jesus might be the firstborn among many brethren. Jesus became the firstborn, showing us the way to follow him to become born again by father's spirit, to become a new creature, a new creation. Jesus told us that we must become born again by father's spirit to enter the kingdom of heaven while here on the earth, and when that happens, we will be as he is, not limited to time and space or the physical constraints of this world, we will become, as his spirit is: John 3:8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. In the verse above the word "wind" and "Spirit" both were translanted from the same word: pneuma. John 3:8 is telling us plainly that when we become born again, truly born again the way Jesus did, we will no longer be limited to the dictates of the kingdom of this world. When we become born again of the spirit of God our father, it is at that time, we enter kingdom of heaven, which is father's house. That is the moment that our father who is invisible and formless bestows on us his kingdom, and we become priests in the order of Melchizedek. We become a kingdom of priests and a holy nation, with our father as our God. We will have become one with him. When we become one with him, we can do the works that Jesus did, and greater, as Jesus said we would. John 14:12 Jesus said, He that believes 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. Jesus knew that he had become one with his father, having become born again by father's spirit and entering the kingdom of heaven while still in his fleshly body, but was no longer limited by it. He also knew that he had the physical Cross before him to help us see that we must go through his cross, bearing our cross, dying to the elementary principles of this world, becoming as a child, to enter into the kingdom of heaven here on
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 25 earth as he did. And then revealing the kingdom of heaven to others, forever and ever, as he is still doing. Father's spirit is our spirit There is only one spirit. Ephesians 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit. Our spirit is our reality. Our spirit is the real us, the unseen eternal immortal invisible that was before time with our father in our father's house. How we became incarcerated in our present flesh bodies in the kingdom of this world will be dealt with in another writing, yet suffice it to understand that, all power was given to the son. All of together were the son. Some took thought of themselves apart from God and in a state of self exaltation and non surrender to father's love, began to think and create apart from father. This is what separates us from our father even now, the thinking and teaching that we are separate. This is the very definitional core of sin: thinking we have existence apart from our father! The highest form of authority we have is surrender; the surrender that allows our father to give us his life and kingdom and operate as him. This is why father values meekness love and surrender more than anything else. Our father has no need of anything we can do for him in the flesh. For all the works of our flesh done apart from what father requests will be burned up as wood hay and stubble. It will not remain. What will remain is all that father requests that he does through us, us letting him do it through us. Remember above the words of Jesus that reveal to us that the words he Jesus gave us were not his words but they were father's words, and that they are both spirit and life? When the words of truth are birthed forth into our flesh, the word becomes flesh. The word becoming flesh is the transformational process of becoming one with our father God. And God is one, made of people who have become one with him, through their ultimate surrender to being who he is. Remember where the kingdom of heaven is? Luke 17:21 Jesus said, …for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. The kingdom of our father becomes our reality as our consciousness becomes one with father. The kingdom of this world will pass away when we realize we are not subject to it. As we enter the kingdom of heaven here and now we will surrender into the kingdom of heaven that we are, that father is, that his spirit is our spirit, and that in ultimate surrender to his love we become one with him. Isaiah 60:19 the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 26 Father's spirit in us reveals to us that we are father's son, that there is only one son and there is only one spirit. That one son is all of us. We are his body. And the spirit we have in us that gives us life and breath, our very existence, is father's spirit. The revelation of the son births forth the revelation of the father that births forth the revelation of being the anointed one, and the only thing we can do is surrender to becoming one with him, the father, that father then births forth by his spirit into being fully him! Father's spirit in us forms the fullness of himself. Who we are We are all sons of our father, God Most High. Psalm 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.' The word "gods" in the verse above was translated from the Hebrew word Elohiym, which means gods, the plural of the supreme God; God. Jesus affirmed the correctness of this when in John he cited the above verse in John. John 10:34-35 Jesus answered, Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came--and the Scripture cannot be broken. The word "gods" here in these words of Jesus was translated from the Greek word theos, meaning deity, the supreme Divinity, God. As sons of God we are his offspring. Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God Romans 8:15 For you have received the Spirit of sonship, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. We are not of this world. We came from where Jesus came from. In fact, the very same way that Jesus was not of this world, we are not of this world. John 17:14 … they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. In our being not of this world, we came from the same place. We all came from where Jesus came from, where Jesus originated, before he appeared on earth. We came into the world the very same way that Jesus did.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 27 John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. The glory that was given Jesus, Jesus then gave to all of us. John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them… Jesus made no distinction of who he gave the same glory to, Jesus gave it to all who would surrender into it. Jesus wanted us to know that he was not any more special to father than you are. John 17:23 …that the world may know that …thou…hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Jesus wanted us to know we have the same father. Jesus wanted us to know that father loves you and me the very same that he loved Jesus. Jesus wanted us to know we came from the same place. Jesus wanted us to know that everything he had been given, we have been given. Who are we? We are the son. We are the son who father put himself in way before the beginning of the world. We existed with God, in fact, we were his body, the very expression of himself. We were the Elohiym, the many member'd son of our father. Proverbs 8:22-31 The LORD Jehovah formed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. Our father God created us to be him, to have life and being in him, to operate with his values, to say what he says and what he shows us to do. We bring forth his will. We bring forth his desires into the world by knowing him so intimately that he reveals to us, that we are him. This is not a vain thing but quite the opposite. We operate in the fullness of who we are and what we have been given, only in the values of father. Love, meekness, humility, honor, respect, deference are all primary values, never leading others to ourselves. We have no existence whatsoever apart from God, for God our father created us to be him.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 28 Isaiah 62:3 You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. The Trinity The Trinity has for centuries been defined as something external to man, something holy, while mankind was only dust, a worm. We have not realized that we are holy, that we are the temple of God, that father has given us himself and his spirit into us, his son. We have looked at ourselves as men and women apart from God, apart from the son of God, apart from the spirit of God. And the result of that? It has kept us from God. It has resulted in us not allowing ourselves to think in terms that the Christ mind is already inside of us. The New and Living Covenant is inside of us. The spirit in us is that of our father and it is holy. Father is holy. Son is holy. Thus we are holy. Ephesians 1:4 As God has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. We are a holy people. We are, in fact, priests unto our God. And as we operate in holiness, righteousness, purity, and honoring each other as holy, father will reveal himself to us more and more. It is only in holiness and purity that we walk in the fullness of all described here. Let us be constantly aware of Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Philippians 2:5-9 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Who is the trinity? You are. You are the son. He who has the son has the father. Father placed his spirit inside each of us. There is only one that one is you; it is all of us, if in surrender we meekly walk in the meekness of father. The trinity exists complete in every person that surrenders to it. It is in ultimate surrender only that a person becomes born again by the spirit of God and operates in the fullness of our father's original design for us.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 29 Surrender Although father placed himself in us, his spirit, his words, giving us his New Covenant; letting us know we are his son and we are called to sit with him in heavenly places, we can only taste of these riches until we surrender and become one with him. Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. Ephesians 4:23-24 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Revelation 12:11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. So who is the Trinity? You are. You are the son that reveals your father who placed his spirit within you. 1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. You have no existence whatsoever except being the Trinity. Jesus realized this in the process of father teaching him all things, knowing all things, being taught that by surrender to father all knowledge, wisdom and understanding that was already inside him would be released into his consciousness by experiencing the transformation process that The New Covenant actually consists of. John 5:19, Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself…. John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. What we are surrendering to is the heart of our father revealing to us that we are truly God's son, that God is our real and true actual father, making us heirs and co-heirs with God and Jesus. One Many have long acknowledged that the Lord is one. The problem is that we have not known how to translate or interpret the word "one." Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD. Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

This is the time that the mystery of God is finished. It is revealed and hidden no longer. Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. Romans 8:19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. Who are the sons of God? All of us are his sons and daughters who surrender to being his son and daughter, regardless of the label of our religion. Regardless of the practices of a religion, it is only God that truly knows the heart of any and every person. The practices of a religion do not defeat the centrality of the heart that surrenders to our father's love. The revelation of the sons of God will cross every religious boundary. There are those of every religious label and those espousing no label that will come forth knowing they are father's son and daughter, acknowledging their place in the many-membered son, that reveals the father and his kingdom. Bible scriptures tell us the lord our God is one. Who will be one with the lord our God that is one? Those who become one individually, in ultimate surrender. These are the ones who become a new creation, a new creature, a heavenly person. These are those who become sinless and perfect, whole and complete. Begotten of God, they come forth, the seed of God birthed forth now into the kingdom of heaven while still living in the flesh. Yet not subject to all the dictates of the kingdom of this world. Who is the trinity? You are. You are the son. He who has the son has the father. Father placed his spirit inside each of us. There is only one that one is you; it is all of us, if in surrender we meekly walk in the meekness of father. Surrender to the love of your father for you, and become a new creation, birthed forth by the spirit of your father. And then? Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. Isaiah 62:3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thank you.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 31 Amen. So it is, it will be established, in all who surrender. The lamb The true revelation of you being the trinity can only be birthed in you through your ultimate surrender, that requires immense meekness, that can only come about as we choose to become as a child to our father, so that our father can truly reveal this revelation into us. Its not the words of a man that transforms us, it's the word of our father. Our father's words in us bring forth the transformation in our thinking to receive this revelation. There are many who want this revelation, and to experience this reality, without the surrender and meekness required to receive it. There are those who will learn how to perform great miracles without the surrender, meekness, and childlikeness required. It is imperative to understand this because for centuries mankind have bowed down to people who seemed to be able to perform miracles. This must change. Mat 24:24-25 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. Mat 24:23 At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. Let not people's labels, affiliations, or apparent credentials; even their apparent miracle working ability deceive you. For many will be deceived, and deceive others. Consider: Mat 7:22-23 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! We are to discern and our maturity must increase. We must judge, but not by the sight of our eyes (what we see others doing) or the hearing in our ears (what 'they' are saying). Isaiah 11:3 and he will …not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears. So how will we make our decisions? John 7:24 Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 32 Righteousness is sourced by our father, God, revealed in the life of Jesus, who, after knowing all the prophesies about his, and spending years in the scriptures, became meek, and let father teach him who he was, and that he was not separate from father, but that father was in him. He surrendered all. He made of himself no reputation and humbled himself, even to death upon the Cross. Then what? He experienced the resurrection. Philippians 2:5-8 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. When we see that Jesus is our pattern and we follow our pattern into becoming his pattern, we will do the same. And what will we then experience? The resurrection. We will become one with him. Mark 10:15 Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Enter in, now. Mat 25:34 enter now the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Reference This is your invitation to study at the University of The New Covenant, in The New Covenant, letting The New Covenant teach you as you birth it.

    • Trinity Revealed - 1 www.unc.bz 33 process that requires meekness and diligence to learn how to be taught by God who is within every person. God gives us our curriculum in the form of daily LESSONS. These LESSONS are the core input into our learning system that teaches us to "see, hear, feel, become" what God is teaching us. All faculty staff and students operate in the courses of this University. We learn how to read differently than in the past. We use different methods for this is an Educational System designed by God for us, so many things are very atypical. (1) We do many "lookups". A linking system exists whereby certain words or phrases in the daily LESSONS are linked to previous LESSONS, (2) we interact daily with others in the course forums where we write posts of what we see being said in the daily LESSONS, and (3) write papers called for in the daily LESSONS, freely exchanging them with each other. We all learn from each other as we "read, map, write, and lead", becoming what God is teaching us we are. The LESSONS form Database One and Database Two. They can be downloaded free at our website. Database One contains some 2400 LESSONS that are organized into 7 Volumes. All of these are foundational in the educational system given us. You can LISTEN to many LESSONS as they were spoken while you read the transcription. The LESSONS that have a Voice File Number listed in the heading can be listened to at the University website.
