People with the name Jesus

“The Father loves the Son and gives everything into his hands.” John 3:35 CEB

Everything was given to the Son, some of these are;

1.) Authority

“Jesus came near and spoke to them, “I’ve received all AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth.” Matthew 28:18 CEB

2.) Glory

“I’ve given them the GLORY that you gave me so that they can be one just as we are one.” John 17:22 CEB

3.) Name of the Father

“I’m no longer in the world, but they are in the world, even as I’m coming to you. Holy Father, watch over them in YOUR NAME, the name you gave me (Matt 1:21), that they will be one just as we are one.” John 17:11 CEB

4.) People.

I have revealed your name to the PEOPLE you gave me from this world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.”John 17:6 CEB.

Now, how about those people with the name Jesus, like Bar-Jesus (Act 13:6)?

Answer: The guy and all other people with the name Jesus may have the name of the Father but it’s an empty shell- no power, no authority and no glory in it.

What was given to the Son of Mary was not just the name of the Father, it also includes power, authority, glory, and people.

Some Ridiculous Teaching of MCGI (Member of Church God International)

1.) God has no knees but has other parts of the body i.e ass, hand, finger, etc.

Their above belief stems from the verse below:

“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,” Philippians‬ ‭2:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Because the Father or God should and will never kneel down to the name Jesus which is above all names, they remove the knee so that God is not able to kneel down. While this solves the conflict that God will now not kneel to the name Jesus because He has no knee, this is an outrageous and simpleton solution or explanation. It would have been acceptable if they remove all parts of the body for, after all, God is Spirit and Spirit has no flesh and bones hence, no form and invisible therefore cannot kneel.

Also, there is a verse in the bible that the Christ Himself admits that the name given to Him which is Jesus in Matt 1:21 was His Father’s name which follows that the Father will not kneel down to His own name.

2.) Women in their congregation are not allowed to cut their hair.

The above belief stems from the verse below:

“Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering. But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.”I Corinthians‬ ‭11:14-16‬ ‭NKJV‬

In their belief, they believe that “long” hair is covering but if you read the verse, it only says that her hair is covering since the one that needs to cover is the head, obviously, the hair need not be long for the purpose of covering the head because the head does not extend down until the knee. It is, however, glory for a woman if she has long hair but again, in terms of head covering, it does not need to be long.

Because of their misunderstanding and adding a word that the verse did not say, long hair becomes covering and since their understanding of the word “nature” is something that happens to the physical world naturally like the sunrise at the east, the birds fly, the wind blows, etc. In their belief, like the sun that rise in the east and set in the west, a woman should just let their hair grows naturally without cutting it but actually, the “nature” was not used in the context of their understanding because, by nature, men’s hair also grows naturally the same as the women yet, the verse says that by nature, it is shameful to a man for having a long hair. If “nature” was used to mean the natural things that happen in the world, by nature, men’s hair should also not be cut off.

Obviously, “nature” was used to mean the natural that was happening in their culture or the cultural/social norm in the society at that time. In the eyes of the society where Paul was at that time, it was by nature shameful for a man to have long hair and it was glory for a woman to have long hair and it should be covered. Even Paul acknowledged that it was a custom, he further said that to anyone who is contentious or wants to argue about this, don’t waste your time for, after all, the church of God has no such custom. But, they made the custom which was supposedly adaptable and can change through time a doctrine, it became a dogma required for women to follow which I find ridiculous and uncalled for.

3.) They forbid to eat Chicken Joy in Jollibee.

The above belief stems from the verse below:

“that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.” Acts‬ ‭15:29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Chicken Joy in Jollibee is halal certified. In their belief, any foods that are halal-certified should not be eaten because it was prayed to a false god. Yet, they eat pork which automatically qualifies to be halal food.

When ask to explain, they believe that halal foods are prayed food as part of Muslim law but the verse did not say that prayed foods are not allowed, it was the offered food that was not allowed. Food can be prayed to but not all foods are offering food. Certainly, halal foods are not offering foods because by right, if you offer something you don’t take it back yet, halal foods are eaten back by people who label it as halal.

In Buddhism ghost month, they offer food to ghost but no one dares to eat what has been offered, why? Because it is not right to eat foods that were offered to someone. An offering is correlated to giving willingly like offering money every time you go to church, you don’t take back what you have been offered. Halal foods are being taken back for food by those who label it to be halal, it cannot be an offering food, it’s a prayed food and the verse did not say to abstain from prayed food because it can be overridden by praying for the food to the God we believe in to be more powerful than any other gods.

As you can see, they conveniently change the verse wording from “offering” to “prayed” so that they can impose religious rules that is outrageous and uncalled for.


The above 3 teachings by MCGI are so far what I found to be outrageous. If anyone knows more outrageous teaching by them and in any other religious sect, kindly care to input. Let us expose it.

Gen 3:14-15 Symbolism

What is the symbolism of the serpent and the serpent seed?

Answer: Serpent symbolizes deception and the seed or products of it were jealousy, hatred, lust, sadness, etc.

In short, from one single act of deception begot different kind of bad spirit that man is capable of manifesting i.e. jealousy and hatred resulted in the act of murder hence, the Cain and Abel case.

Now, in Gen 3:14, it says, the serpent on the belly shall go, meaning the serpent will crawl. What does this mean? When deception attacks, it crawls slowly until fully manifested. The verse also said that the serpent will eat dust all the days of his life, eating dust is a metaphor used in racing which means, outperform, outrun or someone who is left behind. Deception no matter how far it crawls, at the end of the day, it will be left behind, deception has no place in the kingdom of heaven.

In Gen 3:15, the woman represents the bride of Christ or the church, church also is an individual, it’s like one big circle, inside of it are small circles, the small circles inside the big circle are also called a circle, likewise, an individual inside THE church is also called a church. The bride of Christ (Woman) has enmity or despise deception (Serpent). The woman (bride of Christ) seed is the fruit of the spirit in Gal 5:22-23 and the serpent seed are the opposite of what Gal 5:22-23 had mentioned.

The serpent seed symbolises the opposite of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, it crawls and attacks the weak spots of the bride of Christ seed, heels symbolize weak spots similarly like Achilles heel, meaning, when the bride of Christ produces love, hatred may crawl and attack the weak spots but if you know LOVE through Jesus Christ, it can be crushed.

I and my Father are One

“My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them from my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”John 10:29-30 CEB

How to understand the verse above?

Answer: One is a numerical number. What the verse is saying is true in terms of numerical numbers. Aside from one in name and works. Truly, Father and the Son are one but does it mean that they are the same? Can you be numerically one yet not the same? Yes, it’s possible, it’s called composite one

Example: Water is very vast but when contained in a bottle, how many water bottles? Answer: There is only one but is water the same as the bottle? Nope! Water is not the bottle nor the bottle is the water yet they are numerically one.

Father is Eternal Life-John 17:3, very vast and invisible, part of the eternal life in exact essence as the source is in the Son-Col 1:19.

Son is the Image of Eternal Life Col 1:15, He represents the Father to the creation.

They are one as composite and in counts since you can only see the Son or the Image of God. For this reason, when the Son speaks He sometimes includes the Father because He can see Him and only Him hence, “US” “OUR” in Gen 1:26.

The Serpent in Literal Sense

“Now the serpent was more cunning than any 👉BEAST of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”Genesis 3:1 NKJV

beast /bēst/

Learn to pronounce

-noun

-an animal, especially a large or dangerous 👉four-footed one.

So you see, the serpent was one of the beasts- a four-footed one, the more cunning one.

The serpent was not initially walking in the belly rather it was under the classification of a beast, a four-legged creature.

It was when punished that it starts to walk on its belly like a snake in today’s time.

“So the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; 👉On your belly, you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.” Genesis 3:14 NKJV

Now, do serpent eat dust?

There is an organ in the roof of a snake’s mouth called ‘Jacobson’s organ’. This helps the snake to smell in addition to its nose. Its darting, forked tongue samples bits of dust by picking them up on the points of the fork, which it then presents to its matching pair of sensory organs inside its mouth.

Eat does not necessarily mean digesting, it could simply mean tasting. Eat is related to tasting. The verse also did not say, you shall eat dust “ONLY” all the days of your life. Of course, snakes eat other animals but during the hunt or when moving, it can’t help but taste a bit of dust in their mouth to help the snakes be directed to their prey or wherever it goes.

So you see, the serpent was also literal but of course, it can also be interpreted figuratively and or symbolically but let us not discard the literal sense.

“However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.”I Corinthians‬ ‭15:46‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Gen 1:26 and Gen 1:27

Gen 1:26 and Gen 1:27 if analyze is perspective based.

In Gen 1:26, the Speaker of the verse is the Word of God or the Image of God who is also the Son. According to John 1:18, Only the Son can see Father ALL THE TIME. In Heb 1:8, the Son who was in the form of God was also called God. Therefore, from the point of view of the speaker, there were 2 of them hence, the use of “US” “OUR”. The Father refers to the Eternal Life John 17:3 who lives in an unapproachable light that no one can see 1 Tim 6:16, He is very vast that fills heaven and earth Jer 23:24. Part of the eternal Life in exact essence is in the Son who is the Image of Eternal Life- Col 1:15. Since all the time only the Son sees the Father, the Son also used plurality in John 17:21 to refer to Him and the Father in the same manner that it was used also in Gen 1:26.

Now, when it came to Gen 1:27, this now is an account coming from the narrator. In the narrator point of view, He only sees one- The Son or the Image of God because He cannot see what the Image of God can see hence, He used “God” and “His” a singular pronoun

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”Genesis 1:27 NIV

Son = Image of God Col 1:15

Man is Composite One

Man is not an absolute one rather, Man is a composite one.

Man in a sense has two parts within.

1.) Soul intertwines with the body (from the ground)- this is yourself. Visible and self-conscious being made alive by the breath of life.

2.) Breath of Life or Spirit – this is not you per se, though it’s part of you, the will of it is not yours but of the Eternal Life (Father) who is the source. Invisible and self-conscious but does not intervene with the living soul (1) consciousness so that, the soul may have a life of its own.

Soul x breath of life = living soul = Adam = 1 Gen 2:7

Together 1 but composite. No. 2 is the highest part of you, without it, you don’t exist.

We are created in the Image of God and so God is the same, God is 1 but composite one. Gen 1:26-27

1.) Image of God (Son) -Visible – Self Conscious- Col 1:15

2.) Eternal Life (Father) – Invisible and vast, present inside and outside- Self Conscious –1 Tim 6:16, Jer 23:24, John 17:3

Image (Son) x Eternal Life (Father) = God = 1 = Jesus

Though the Son is self-conscious or has a life of its own, the Image of God (Son) follows the will of the Eternal Life so that they are one also in works, authority and in names but, the fullness of works, authority and name was made known fully when the Son (Image) was sent to become Man- the Christ. John 3:16
