God and Jesus of the Same Substance Says EGW

Click to go to our Home Page



·       The Bible says God is a Spirit: Jhn 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

·       The Bible says that there is ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT OR THE ETERNAL SPIRIT: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Hebrews 9:14.

·       I would take it that the words THE ETERNAL SPIRIT means ONE ETERNAL SPIRIT. 

·       We have access to the Father through ONE SPIRIT:  18For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Ephesians 2:18

·       God is of the substance of Spirit for God is a Spirit. “The Jews had never before heard such words from human lips, and a convicting influence attended them; for it seemed that never before heard such words from human lips, and a convicting influence attended them; for it seemed that divinity flashed through humanity as Jesus said, “I and My Father are One.” The words of Christ were full of deep meaning as He put forth the claim that He and the Father were of one substance, possessing the same attributes.The Signs of the Times, November 27, 1893, p. 54. {7ABC437.3}

·       It is the one substance, the one eternal spirit, THAT MAKES ALL PARTIES TO THE GODHEAD ONE GOD.

·       Jesus and the Father always had the ONE SUBSTANCE, the ONE HOLY SPIRIT.

·       At His Incarnation, the humanity of Jesus cumbered His Holy Spirit substance and its attributes like omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience. Therefore, He divested His Holy Spirit from His humanity and it became independent of His humanity--an independent THIRD PERSON for the first time. He died to that DIVINE NATURE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY BEING forever to be combined with humanity forever.

·       "But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood."  Hebrews 7:24.

·       "Cumbered with humanity Christ could not be in every place personally, therefore it was altogether for their advantage that He should leave them to go to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to be His successor on earth. The Holy Spirit is Himself divested of the personality of humanity and independent thereof. He would represent Himself as present in all places by His Holy Spirit.” E.G. White, (Manuscript Releases Volume 14 (No’s 1081-1135) MR No.1084.

·       This divestation of His Holy Spirit ONLY Nature from His humanity--FOREVER, met the prescribed limits of the the Testator Covenant.

·        "The darkness rolled away from the Saviour and from the Cross. Christ bowed His head and died. In His Incarnation He had reached the prescribed limit as a sacrifice, but not as a redeemer." E.G. White Manuscript Releases Volume Twelve, p. 409.

·       What was the prescribed limit as a sacrifice? It was death of the Testator? How did the Testator die BEFORE the cross, before becoming our REDEEMER on the cross? What did He sacrifice? By divesting Himself from being DIVINE NATURE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY, to become combined with humanity forever, He sacrificed being DIVINE ONLY and died forever to that DIVINE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY ESTATE OF BEING. That was a huge sacrifice. That sacrifice met the prescribed limits of the Testator, for the Testator must die to something eternally, for the wages of sin is eternal death, not just three days and nights in a tomb.

·       Hbr 9:16 For where a testament [is], there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
Hbr 9:17 For a testament [is] of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

·       If Jesus did not die to something eternally, His atonement would be of no strength at all while He should live on. There would be no atonement. This is where the Trinity Doctrine becomes antichrist. It bypasses this important pre-cross, Incarnation sacrifice in the Heavenly Sanctuary. It was by that pre-cross sacrifice that Christ made an eternal atonement for sin by dying forever to His DIVINE ONLY STATE OF BEING, and bequeathing that life, the soul of His life, His Holy Spirit Divine Nature to us as heaven’s "highest good, crowing gift," for regenerating man back into the image of God, and for empowering us in overcoming sin.

·       The Trinity Doctrine says that the Holy Spirit always existed as a THIRD PERSON without this sacrifice at which time the THIRD PERSON became such by the Incarnation sacrifice in the heavenly Sanctuary, meeting the prescribed limit of a sacrifice--dying to something forever, namely His former existence as DIVINE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY. To voluntarily cumber that DIVINE ONLY EXISTENCE with humanity FOREVER, was the sacrifice of all sacrifices. It was the "highest good, crowning gift heaven could bestow," says Ellen White.

·       "He (Christ) suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which WAS His." Desire of Ages, p. 25 1 Cor. 11:24-265, cf. John 6:53, 54, Titus 3:5, 6.

·       What death was ours? Was it three days and nights in a tomb? Nay! It is eternal death. Christ took that death at His Incarnation in Heaven, and gave His eternal DIVINE NATURE HOLY SPIRIT LIFE to us, that we might overcome the lust of the world and be renewed to our original creation in His likeness. The Trinity Doctrine of Rome totally bypasses this important INCARNATION ATONEMENT, which met the prescribed limit of a sacrifice BEFORE THE REDEMPTIVE ACT ON THE CROSS of taking all our sins upon Himself.

·       "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."  2Pe 1:4

·       "Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.

In the gift of the Spirit, Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....

The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....

It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.


Without the Heavenly Sanctuary Incarnation sacrifice which provided for us the Holy Spirit soul of His life BEFORE THE CROSS, the sacrifice on the cross would have been of no avail, because there would have been no power to keep us from sinning. The Trinity doctrine of Rome totally obfuscates that Heavenly Sanctuary sacrifice BEFORE THE CROSS, by teaching that the Holy Spirit always existed as a third person—thus, NO INCARNATION SACRIFICE of the Testator’s soul of His life as a “highest good, crowning gift” for man whereby he is enabled to overcome sin. And this is how the Trinity Doctrine, as a spiritualistic theory of man (emanating from Rome), sweeps away the entire Christian economy because it does not recognize the “highest good, crowning sacrifice heaven can bestow.”

Bible text

Acts 3:26  Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.


It is the Holy Spirit of Jesus that is sent to us to turn every one of us from our iniquities. 


"The Incarnation of Christ was an act of self-sacrifice; His life was one of continual self-denial. The highest glory of the love of God to man was manifested in the sacrifice of His only-begotten Son, who was the express image of His person. This is the great mystery of godliness. It is the privilege and the duty of every professed follower of Christ to have the mind of Christ. Without self-denial and cross bearing we cannot be His disciples." E.G. White, Selected Messages, Book 2, p. 185.

·       Without the heavenly Sanctuary Incarnation sacrifice, there would be no atonement, thus rendering the Sanctuary/Atonement GONE, just as Kellogg's theory did in the Alpha of Apostasy:

·       Sanctuary Gone Atonement Gone -- "In a representation which passed before me, I saw a certain work being done by medical missionary workers. Our ministering brethren were looking on, watching what was being done, but they did not seem to understand. The foundation of our faith, which was established by so much prayer, such earnest searching of the Scriptures, was being taken down, pillar by pillar. Our faith was to have nothing to rest upon--the sanctuary was gone, the atonement was gone." E.G. White, The Upward Look, 152.

·       That is what the Trinity Doctrine does. It renders the Sanctuary/Atonement GONE, thereby destroying the entire Christian economy, because it does not teach a heavenly Incarnation sacrifice that met the prescribed limits of a sacrifice which is DEATH OF THE TESTATOR to something eternally.

·       Without that "highest good, crowing gift," the sacrifice of Christ's Holy Spirit, the soul of His life, we could not overcome, so all would be lost.


Eternal Sacrifice as Divine Soul Only

"The apostle would call our attention from ourselves to the Author of our salvation. He presents before us His two natures, divine and human. . . . He voluntarily assumed human nature. It was His own act, and by His own consent.
He clothed His divinity with humanity. He was all the while as God, but He did not appear as God. He veiled the demonstrations of Deity which had commanded the homage, and called forth the admiration of the universe of God. He was God while upon earth, but He divested Himself of the form of God, and in its stead took the form and fashion of a man. He walked the earth as a man. For our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might be made rich. He laid aside His glory and His majesty. He was God, but the glories of the form of God He for awhile relinquished. . . . He bore the sins of the world, and endured the penalty which rolled like a mountain upon His divine soul. He yielded up His life a sacrifice, that man should not eternally die. He died, not through being compelled to die, but by His own free will." E.G. White, SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 7a, p. 446.


Glories of the form of God refer to the glory He shared with the Father before the Incarnation. He gets that glory (praise, worship) back, but His eternal humanity cumbers His Holy Spirit ONLY being forever. That is why He had to pray to the Father to send the Holy Spirit to us.


How Christ can be fully human and fully divine, no one knows. But the above scenario is based on Bible and Spirit of Prophecy fact. Ellen White says we will study this issue for eternity, so there is much we don't know.

22By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

23And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:

24But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

25Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

26For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

27Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.

28For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore. Hebrews 7:22-28.
