The Lettuce Verse Sermon - Pastor Steve Winter

This is my scriptural text for tonight's sermon 08/09/2001 about
the "lettuce" verse. We had 6 visitors tonight and a good move of
the Holy Spirit. Lord willing I will have the audio of the sermon
uploaded to the www later. http://www.onenessapostolic.org/audio

Here we have one of the favorite verses of the trinity/antichrist
preachers, except if we keep reading just one verse further; we see
that verse 26 couldn't have possibly been referring to a discussion
with other gods. God was talking with the angels.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and
over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth,
and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of
God created he him; male and female created he them.

See in verse 27; it says "he" created, not "they" created. But as if
that wasn't enough proof, we see in this next verse that God clearly
and plainly declares that He did the creating, and I quote "by
myself"

Isaiah 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed
thee from the womb, I [am] the LORD that maketh all [things]; that
stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by
myself;

Isaiah 44:25 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh
diviners mad; that turneth wise [men] backward, and maketh their
knowledge foolish;

God does not seem overly impressed with men's pet theories, does He?

Isaiah 45:5 I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else, [there is] no
God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Isaiah 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from
the west, that [there is] none beside me. I [am] the LORD, and [there
is] none else.

Now I have to submit that if there had been any other co-equal,
co-eternal 1/3 gods around that Jehovah Saviour would have been aware
of them, notice that He states, and I quote "there is none beside
me".

Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth
[in] righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee
shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Isaiah 45:23 and Philippians 2:10 & 11 must be referring to the same
person, whom all knees will eventually bow to.

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of
[things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the
earth;
Philippians 2:11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus
Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Now if you're having any trouble at all with thinking that verse 11
speaks of two gods, just take the comma out (the original language
didn't have 'em)...and notice the consistent meaning, if we read the
verse to mean that Jesus Christ is Lord of the glory of God the
Father.
If that seems to be stretching things a bit, notice this next verse:

I Corinthians 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for
had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

See, it says that Jesus is the Lord of glory, but we see in this next
verse that Jehovah Saviour states that He will not share His glory
with any other....sooo we see that Jehovah Saviour allowed Himself to
be crucified.

Isaiah 48:11 For mine own sake, [even] for mine own sake, will I do
[it]: for how should [my name] be polluted? and I will not give my
glory unto another.

And if anyone with even the slightest bit of sincerity has any
lingering doubt, Jesus said it about as plain as it could be said.

John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and
yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because
it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he
dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be
that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the
Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Notice how the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ is the same
Spirit. That same Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, or the Holy Ghost.

God is a Spirit.

John 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
[him] in spirit and in truth.

God is holy.

I Samuel 2:2 [There is] none holy as the LORD: for [there is] none
beside thee: neither [is there] any rock like our God.

God is a "Holy Spirit". Jesus is the "Spirit of truth"

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus was "dwelling with them" and promised to be "in them".

John 14:17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he
dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

The "comforter" is the "Spirit of Christ"

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

The "Spirit of Christ" is the "Holy Spirit" is the "Spirit of Truth"

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring
all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The Spirit of God visited His creation robed in flesh as the "Son".

I Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of
godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit,
seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world,
received up into glory.

The fullness of God is in Jesus Christ

Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead
bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all
principality and power:

Jesus IS the "everlasting Father".

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and
the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be
called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Those who believe that Jesus is a "separate person" from the "Father"
don't really know Jesus at all.

John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and
yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?
