35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy
Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the
Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that
holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be
called the Son of God.
1.The Father of the Child JesusBack to One God Definition Scriptures
In this verse, the process by which the child Jesus of Nazareth was conceived
is revealed. It is clear from this scripture Who it was that "overshadowed" Mary,
the virgin mother of Jesus to accomplish His conception. It was the Holy Ghost
who did this, and who is also referred to in this same verse as the "power of the
Highest" indicating that the action of the Holy Ghost is the very action of
Almighty God Himself. From this we may conclude that the Father and the Holy Ghost
are one in the same person.
The Doctrine of the Trinity states in point 26, that God exists as three separate
and distinct Persons, co-equal and "co-existent". The term "co-existent" unfortunately
establishes three entities, three persons and yes- three gods. This is an impossibility
with the God of the Bible. The error in this doctrine becomes evident when one considers
the Fatherhood of the Lord Jesus Christ. If God existed in three separate and distinct
Persons, then the Holy Ghost is the father of the child Jesus and not the Father Himself.
No such difficulty exists when understanding that God is one Spirit.
2. The Timing of the Title of "Son"
This scripture is the fulfillment of the Isaiah 9:6 prophecy. This verse
determines the proper timing and use of the term "Son of God", to be applied
after the incarnation of the Word (John 1:1, the "Son of God".
Deliberately injects the title "Son" into John 1:1 and other verses where it does
not belong to extend the existence of the Son to eternity pass, rather than the
correct Biblical terminology- "the Word". Introduces terminology such as "God the Son"
is a deliberate attempt to establish God as three separate and distinct "co-equal"
