Shalom! My name is Adam Pastor

Welcome to ADONI MESSIAH which means
"My Lord Messiah" -
a fitting epithet to who Jesus (or Yeshua) is!

Here, I attempt to present the Apostolic Truths according to the Scriptures, that there is
One GOD, the Father, namely, YAHWEH,
and One Lord, GOD's only begotten Son,
Yeshua the Messiah.

And that one day YAHWEH will send His Son back to Earth to inaugurate the Everlasting Kingdom of GOD



Enjoy!

An Appeal to Oneness believers

Came across these posts of the One God view on Facebook.
It was written by someone who used to be a Oneness believer! Whose eyes has been opened.

May the ONE TRUE GOD continue to open the eyes of Oneness people that they may see His Son, our one Mediator, the man Christ Jesus. Amen!




Please consider these very interesting statements by Jesus Christ...


  • Jesus told us that he was NOT God:
  • Mark 10:18 (KJV) And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
  • Jesus told us that he HAD A GOD:
  • John 20:17 (KJV) Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
  • Jesus, while praying to HIS GOD, made this statement:
  • John 17:3 (KJV) And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
So who then is Jesus?

  • Jesus' God revealed Jesus' identity to the Apostle Peter: 
  • Matthew 16:16–17 (KJV) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
  • The Apostle John echoed this revelation:
  • 1 John 4:14–15 (KJV) And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
Along with the Apostles, 

I confess that Jesus is the CHRIST, the Son of GOD!


To all my cherished Oneness brothers and sisters: 


I humbly ask you to consider the following statements of our Lord Jesus Christ...

John 5:31–37 (KJV)

31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.


A couple of interesting principles about Jesus' statements here:
1) Jesus said "If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true." That means that if Jesus WAS the Father, he would be bearing witness of himself, and therefore his witness would not be true. Jesus is appealing to a SECOND witness, in addition to HIMSELF, GREATER than himself.


2) Jesus refused the witness of man, even John the Baptist. And appealed unto a GREATER witness than man: HIS FATHER. To say anything else is to try and make God a liar:

1 John 5:10 (KJV)
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.


3) Jesus was standing there IN THE FLESH, for all the people present to HEAR HIS VOICE, and SEE HIS SHAPE. And while Christ is speaking, he tells them that they have NEVER HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD, and NEVER SEEN THE SHAPE OF GOD. 

So they are looking at Christ, and hearing Christ's voice, and Christ tells them that they have not heard the voice of God, or seen the shape of God.
How then can Christ BE the Almighty GOD?
He is NOT! 


This teaching that Jesus IS the ALMIGHTY GOD, whether the Trinitarian version or the Oneness version, is a TRADITION OF MEN.

He is the CHRIST, the SON of GOD!
This teaching is the TRUTH as proclaimed by God, Christ, and the Apostles
(God = Matthew 16:15-17, Christ = John 20:17, and the Apostles = 1 John 4:14-15)



Preaching Jesus...


Acts 17:18 (KJV)
Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.
But what Jesus did Paul preach?
Acts 17:29–31 (KJV)
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Paul preached that Jesus is the MAN that God 1) ordained and 2) raised from the dead.

The Apostle Peter proclaimed THAT SAME JESUS:
Matthew 16:15–17 (KJV)
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
[I will add Acts 2:22
Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:]

The Apostle John also proclaimed THAT SAME JESUS:
1 John 4:14–15 (KJV)
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
[I will add John 20:31
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.]


This is the Jesus that even GOD HIMSELF testified of:
1 John 5:10 (KJV)
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

Jesus is the CHRIST! He is the SON OF GOD!


A False Assumption:


To my cherished "Oneness" brothers and sisters, I humbly ask you to please consider this:
There is NOT ONE VERSE in the entire Bible that speaks of a "dual nature" in Christ. 
NOT ONE VERSE that says Jesus was "fully God and fully man." Many Oneness proponents are now being honest enough with the Scriptures to admit this, and I RESPECT THEM GREATLY for their honesty.
Here is the danger with believing the ASSUMPTION of a "dual nature" in Christ: Those who believe in the false ASSUMPTION of a "dual nature" in Christ, make the fatal error of interpreting the WHOLE Bible by a FALSE ASSUMPTION. 

For example:
The Bible CLEARLY says that God sent HIS SON. Yet, the Oneness doctrine, because of this ASSUMPTION, teaches that God did not send HIS SON, but sent HIMSELF.
The Bible CLEARLY says that Jesus HAS A GOD. Yet, the Oneness doctrine, because of this ASSUMPTION, teaches that Jesus somehow is his OWN GOD.
The Bible CLEARLY says that Jesus prayed to HIS GOD. Yet, the Oneness doctrine, because of this ASSUMPTION, teaches that Jesus was somehow praying to HIMSELF.
The Bible CLEARLY says that God testified of HIS SON. Yet, the Oneness doctrine, because of this ASSUMPTION, denies God's testimony and teaches that God testified of HIMSELF.
The Bible CLEARLY teaches that Christ was tempted and that GOD CANNOT be tempted. Yet, the Oneness doctrine, because of this ASSUMPTION, teaches that God WAS TEMPTED in that they believe Jesus WAS GOD.
The list goes ON and ON...
The point is, that because of one false ASSUMPTION, that they CANNOT PROVE with even JUST ONE VERSE, they then filter the ENTIRE BIBLE through this ASSUMPTION.

Why not just BELIEVE GOD? Why not believe God's testimony of HIS SON? Why try to change God's testimony to fit an ASSUMPTION of MEN?

1 John 5:10 (KJV)
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

I ask all my brothers and sisters currently believing the Oneness doctrine to be HONEST with the SCRIPTURES. Please admit to YOURSELF that it is ludicrous to filter the ENTIRE BIBLE through an ASSUMPTION that you CANNOT prove with Scripture? Why not BELIEVE GOD? Why not believe GOD'S OWN TESTIMONY instead of the ignoring what God's Word PLAINLY declares, just to believe the ASSUMPTIONS of MEN?

May we be HONEST with ourselves and with the Scriptures?
