The Nicene Creed: Historical Notes
1. The Divinity of Jesus Christ

One of the characteristics of false gospels and cults is a corruption of Christian doctrine and with that a falsifying of Christian church history. With respect to the doctrine of the Trinity set forth in the Nicene Creed it is commonly claimed by these heretics that the doctrine in the creed was decided by the recently converted emperor Constantine. Such assertions are a deliberate deceit perpetrated on the ill-informed. The doctrine of the Trinity was set forth by the church father Athanasius who was the leading theologian of the church in that era and at the council. For a treatment of Athanasius and his history go to Portraits of Faithful Saints: Athanasius

The cults who make these false claims are themselves usually Arian heretics who want to teach that Jesus is like God, that he is a godlike being, but not true and eternal God. The creed was written expressly to condemn the Arian error. The most notable of these non-Christian cults are the so-called Jehovah's Witnesses, followers of Russell, and publishers of the Watchtower.

There is a distinction to be made between an error and a heresy. An error is a misunderstanding of Scripture. An error becomes heresy when it is pointed out as error and false doctrine, and the one holding it persists, after having been shown his error, to continue in it willfully.

The point of the Nicene Creed, which builds on the Apostles Creed is to maintain faithfully the true, divine glory of Jesus Christ. The heart of the creed is the expression "...And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made." The Creed has John 1:1-3, 14 directly in view. Jesus is God come in the flesh. This is also the testimony of the rest of Scripture. He is Immanuel, "God with us." Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23.

This is Jesus' own claim. God in Exodus 3:14 reveals His divine name "I AM THAT I AM," and tells Moses he is to say, "I AM hath sent me unto you." Jesus in John 8:58 declares, "Before Abraham was, I am." In John 10:30 Jesus says, "I and my Father are one. " Jesus claims to be THE ETERNAL I AM, the living God. The unbelieving Jews understand exactly His claim. In John 10 they proceed to take up stones to stone Him, because, "thou being a man makest thyself God," John 10:33. When Jesus is on trial before the Sanhedrin, the council of elders, He is put under oath by the High priest, "I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God," Matthew 26:63. The point at issue in all of these confrontations is whether Jesus is divine. Jesus' answer to the high priest is, "Thou hast said," Matthew 26:64. This is an unmistakable "yes." That Jesus is God is therefore His own testimony concerning Himself. See also Hebrews 1:1-3

The further revisions of the Nicene Creed did not alter the truth that Jesus is divine in any respect. It is the historic confession of true Biblical Christianity.

Let's examine the truth in its fullness. Truth is never fragmented for it is not ours but God's. It never suits our beliefs, which we often support with isolated verses without the complete meaning of the context. Making up own beliefs is the continuation of paganism.

Let's start with the words Jesus said about Himself: 

[John 5:30-32] 30 “I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. [31] “If I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true. [32] There is another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true. 

Clearly, Jesus points to the Father and constantly so. As the record of His words will show, at the end of this article, He includes His disciples and through them also us in the divine unit, not Jesus alone. If Jesus is singled out as God then who are we, evolved apes? Yet, we have the divine gift of reason which those stuck in self-righteous religious conceit refuse to use.

Regarding John 10:30 “I and the Father are one” - He who holds the mirror, Jesus, is one with what/whom He holds; hence, Jesus reflects the Father and by doing so He is one with the Father. The Father reflects the Son and the Son reflects the Father; something we are called to be and do. 

[34] Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? [35] If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), [36] do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

Again, Jesus includes us in the divine unit. If prophets hear God’s voice and transmit God’s word to us then the prophets are like microphones and amplifiers, one with God when God uses them. As vessels on earth the reflect. But when Jesus was dying on the cross He said: [Mark 15:34]
At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?” which is translated, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” 

God’s Son and God’s vessel was separated from the divine unit, because the world’s sins were pinned to Him and to the cross. As the record will later show Jesus did it of His own volition by obeying the Father’s commandment. 

[John 14:12] Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

The Almighty God was never conceived having no beginning, Jesus was begotten (only begotten speaks of the unique special because He is the FiRSTBORN of God). Why dos it matter? You can have religion based on the above or be part of God's family as siblings of Christ. 

[John 14:28] I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. - Position of Bishop Arius in 330-325 under Emperor Constantine and the Nicene Creed.  

Jesus receives a commandment from the Father and obeys it:

[John 8:18] “I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.” 

About Trinity:
[Matthew 24:36] “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.”

If the there are or one mind and one Spirit and unit how come Jesus does not know about the timing of His return? 

The Only Begotten Son

[John 20:17] “Go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”

After resurrection Jesus reveals to us the absolute Truth about our relationship with Him.

The Firstborn Son of God 
[Zechariah 12:10] “So that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.”

[Luke 2:23] (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “EVERY firstborn MALE THAT OPENS THE WOMB SHALL BE CALLED HOLY TO THE LORD”),

[Romans 8:29] For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.

[Colossians 1:15] He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
[Colossians 1:18] He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.
[Hebrews 1:6] He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.”

The Great I AM has no beginning, if He did then we would need to look for another God who begot God.

Jesus was conceived, begotten born in heaven and on earth. God can have only one firstborn those who come to the Father through His firstborn Son Yeshua (Salvation) (not Yahoshua) come back to the only one God. Hence the Parable of the Prodigal son, who wanted to be the least of his father’s slaves, yet the Father accepted him as His son anyway.   

God is Spirit

[John 4:22-24] You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. [23] But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. [24] God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

The Father Dependence

Jesus never claimed to be the Almighty God but one with the Father, Immanuel - God with us - via mirroring and reflecting. Whatever the Father said the Son said and whatever the Father did the Son did likewise.

[John 5:19 &30]  Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.” [30]  “I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

On His own… can do nothing. Therefore, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob remains the same Spirit God, but depicted on earth through earthen vessels, even through His FIRSTBORN Son and His siblings, us.

Jesus answered Nicodemus saying, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" (John 3:5).

To many this is a puzzle, but why? 

First of all a symbolical sprinkling with water called baptism does not qualify. The original baptism comes from Noah's flood in which evil and evildoers perished; hence the old man is buried in. 

Secondly, Jewish Mikveh is a form of baptism. One goes into the water (like Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch did, "they both went down into the water" Acts 8:38) and then one goes out of the water and never stands on a bank getting sprinkled. Baptism is an act of obedience. Being washed with God's Word is also an act of obedience. Faith without works (or doing anything) is dead. 

Since Christianity emerged from Judaism some original traditions were kept until the moment the majority of Christians were no longer Jewish but gentile. So things were being changed just to satisfy the gentile pride I suppose... and the desire to distance themselves from the Jews drove many to alter many original traditions. Yet, God never meant for gentiles to dwell in their own tent, for if they do then they drift away from the truth.


[Genesis 9:27]  “May God enlarge Japheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shem. 

Japheth - Javan, Greece, Europe - Christianity. 

Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Israel, Judah - Jews.

[John 4:22] You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. - Jesus.

When you lose the anchor your boat will drift without an aim.

[Romans 11:18] Do not be arrogant toward the branches (The Jew and Israel); but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 

Read the Letter of Paul to the Roman Christians (Romans 11) about the Jews, and you will found your anchor. For it is greatly pleasing to God when one humbles the pride of this life. 

[Romans 11:32] For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.

Why? To affect the humbling of pride.

I must add that the birth of water and Spirit is not only of the Word and Spirit, but also a baptism in water and baptism in the Spirit. Apostle Paul associates water washing with God's Word.

[Ephesians 5:26] so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word.

John the Baptist speaks of baptism with water and with the Holy Spirit.

[Matthew 3:11] As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Just as the Jewish Mikveh is (complete immersion in flowing water) so it is in Christianity. It passed on to Christianity, but with alterations of course; nonetheless water is involved.

So we have four aspects to consider.(1) Water as the Word. (2)Physical water of baptism. (3) Immersion ( in God's word and in His Spirit), like an infant is immersed in its mother's. (4) Birth after one has matured and outgrew the womb dwelling.

There are three births, which is a mystery to most Christians.

1. Be born again starts with seeing - to SEE the Kingdom (John 3:3) (Greek SEE, εἴδω eidō, to know and be aware, perceive, understand, to be sure of and to tell about what one comprehends.) 

2. To be born of the water and the Spirit, the WORD and the Holy Spirit, in other words Holy Spirit empowered word. (Isaiah 61:1-3 speaks of the anointing that attract the Holy Spirit). That birth ushers us into God's Kingdom, hence we ENTER. (John 3:5)

3. Then one is born of the Spirit (and sins no more - 1 John 5:18 the evil one was Cain for 1 John 3:4-9 explains it. It is one Letter of John to us, not many, one message). We become like wind, born out of this world, no one knows whence we come and where we are going (John 3:8).

The start is being born again to see and understand. Most people I deal with, German speaking do not sound like they had the experience. They love Jesus and come to God in prayer but can't comprehend, and grasp spiritual things. After 25 years of preaching to the German speaking people I want to give up. Either they are so much in the flesh or they become dogmatic and very much pretentious.

Some of us have entered and some of us have been already born of the Spirit and sin no more.

Many of my friends eat and drink His Word and that's great, but in most of the churches I have ministered, Holland and Germany, people know very little about the new birth. In America there are millions who call themselves born-again Christians and each can pinpoint the new birth experience in the timeline of their lives. Then people can SEE comprehend and grasp spiritual things, just as Jesus told Nicodemus. 

I am the youngest from among 3 children. I remember clearly when in the middle of the night my sister got born again, she ran with tears to my parents bedroom shouting that she is born again. The Lord Jesus visited her in the middle of the night and she gave her life to Him.

A year later my brother also got up in the middle of the night 2 - 3 O'clock PM, crying and waking up the whole house telling us that 'he is born again.' Then one day came my time also, in 1967 in July in a Baptist Church I was born again and then was called to serve the Lord. In 1975 I was Baptized in the Holy Spirit, received the gift of tongues and prophecy. Forms a music band and evangelized. The first place was Catholic church. I gave the first ever altar call and the entire congregation stood up and with tears of repentance, actually sobbing, came to the front giving their lives to Jesus. That was the first revival explosion in my ministry. I was only 22 years old then. 

In 1979 I ministered in USA - Oakland by San Francisco, California - in a large church over 2000 people and all of them were born again. Oh what a fellowship. When I shared the word they grasped everything and wanted more. I taught there, in the Bible college; the whole class fell on the ground under the power of God. We had a revival. There were no body catchers, they just went down. The power of New Birth continues on to the middle birth as explained earlier, then comes the final birth of the Spirit and being like wind. But how can anyone believe in the third birth when the first birth is not even known? 

In Seattle, Washington, several Jewish Hassidim decided to go with me to the ends of the earth as my disciples, about 10 of them. They did not have enough of the Living Water that was flowing through me into them. We were all on fire. Although we were dressed Jewish, with kippas/yarmulke, tzitziot, praying with talits, (the prayer shoals), etc. The religious outlook did not matter, Yeshua, Jesus mattered for only He can give you the new birth, not religion or the sweat of your brain trying to understand spiritual things.

Then I came to Germany into the Lutheran churches and some Catholic. I found not one being born again and burning, but very much religious and proud of being religious. All sit dumbfounded with speculative looks on their faces. It's been a tedious and slow work of explaining and teaching something, which a born again person grasps in a split second for it is given by the Spirit.

How to get born again?

Jesus said you MUST be born again. He really used this word MUST. (Greek: δει,
die, it is necessary, must, need, ought to, you should) in order to see or comprehend God's Kingdom.

It is the heart that matters to God. If you are used to confessing things in church (Catholic or Lutheran) and think that this is it, then I must tell you that you only carry dead religion and not the living Spirit.

1. You must be desperate.

2. Cry to out to God from your heart.

3. Desire the new birth with all the intensity of your heart.

4. Fall on your knees and break your heart confessing the accumulated filth in your life, your sins, hurts, burdens, keep on confessing asking for forgiveness and grace.

5. Say, I want to be born again now. I want to be reborn and enter Your Kingdom Lord Jesus. Come into My mind, My soul, My heart, My spirit and My body. Invite Him in.

The New Birth experience then follows.

Why Mind, soul, spirit and body?

Mind - To see the Kingdom to understand it. It's His gift.

Soul - To feel Him, His love and experience His touch in our daily lives, every single day, no matter what the circumstance. The soul that sins shall die the Bible says. Soul must be saved and reborn. Its complexities, like a bundle of threats and wires, must be untied and loosened up.

Heart - The center of your entire being. Cardo (Latin, as Cardiovascular) God is after the core of your being not outward ceremonies.

Spirit - God bypasses our sinful souls and bodies using only the spirit of life in ministry. (Gifts of the Spirit like tongues, prophecy, knowledge, wisdom and understanding, faith, healing, miracles, power, etc.) Your spirit becomes His property, you surrender it all to Him.

Body - Your body executes God's will. His Spirit moves your body in service. At the new birth experience also our bodies get healed as they align themselves with the laws of God's Kingdom. The body is then vivified and experiences cleansing from time to time, it is being flushed (toxins go out) and gets renewed. Philips body was the Lord's so that He could transport it as He wanted to. Philip experience the third birth, the birth of the Spirit and beam just like wind. No one knew where he came from or where he was going.

Pray today and get BORN AGAIN. Be born again so that you might SEE the Kingdom of God. Be born of Water and the Spirit. Be born of the Spirit and be like wind. I pray for you today.

Watch THREE BIRTHS - Part 2

Watch THREE BIRTHS - Part 3

Watch THREE BIRTHS - Part 4


Each parable of Jesus contains a deep meaning; these are the secrets of God’s kingdom, which could not have been explained with many words. Similes and metaphors, according to our knowledge today, can only be grasped by a mind that is able to think in abstract ways. Mathematics does not improve our brain as much as abstract thinking. But this abstract thinking is actually infinite and boundless. It’s been proven that we remember better through the use of associations. For example: you have misplaced buttons, which you have planned to attach to your garment and have forgotten the place where you have left them. But if you had associated the place with a skyscraper like the Sears Tower in Chicago and then those buttons with huge wheels of a Mac Truck or an earth mover, you would have no problem finding those buttons. However, the opposite is with computers for the more data you enter the more your clutter the disc space and eventually you will run out of memory. But our brain seems to have infinite space; the more you put into it the quicker it works. The more you educate it the better it remembers and faster it connects. These opposites must be accepted with understanding. The last is first and the first is last. The great is small and the small can be great. The rich is poor and the poor can be rich… A circle has no beginning and no end. All round objects in space represent infinity; hence our earth and its moon look infinite. They might fall apart, but their debris can be re-gathered, reformed and restored back to their former round shapes.

Our earth and moon may fall apart yet they exist in the mind of the Creator and also in fragments somewhere in space. All fragments in space testify of their origin, which is in the One. Even a minute dust particle can be gathered back to the unit from which it broke off. Even the fire itself that decimated a rock can be rolled back in time and reconstituted; both the fire and the rock can return to their former state. Nothing is lost.

God has the substance of things hoped for, but He does not need to hope for anything for hope represents a need and anticipation, which in turn needs a span of time. God is infinite and timeless. Unlike our thoughts His thoughts are instantaneous; hence in His mind things are; and hope plays no role. To a physical person invisible and intangible things seem nonexistent, yet we also possess the proclivity to create and the capacity to can bring a thought into a visible and tangible reality.

Let’s imagine that you have no brain, you live, but in a vegetating kind of state. You may breathe, but no muscle moves because it has no physical brain to command it and coordinate any movement. The physical commander is the brain; and as a result because of the commander’s absence the entire structure remains still.

Let’s imagine God who is Spirit (John 4:24) and He has no contour or physical mass. Many people worship His creation as they would worship God; hence these people keep on attaching body to the Spirit. This need, to touch and physically see, is indeed enormous.

[Deuteronomy 4:15-18] So watch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire, so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky, the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water below the earth.    

A blessing awaits anyone who has not physically touched, tasted or seen and yet has believed but with what kind of faith, blind or educated hence intelligent? We glorify faith itself as something magical, so many nurture only wishful thinking in this regard. A blind faith is fruitless and it does not come from the disciplined creative part of our being, but rather from the primitive one. Like a Neanderthal who believes that he can make a kill with his javelin; so he stalks and runs toward the prey. If that kind of faith is also applied to God and the supernatural works one runs, huffs and puffs but to nowhere.

[John 20:27] “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
An educated faith is quite different from anything else we have ever come in contact with. For example: Philip heard the Holy Spirit telling him to join the Ethiopian Eunuch traveling back to Ethiopia. Philip had heard, but hearing alone does not do the job. It’s like that flying plane that never lands. Once Philip obeyed the voice he landed on the ground and did some work. He shared the Gospel, baptized the man and then went on his way, but then that same Holy Spirit snatched him and transported him to the Azotus street, where another mission awaited Philip. (Acts 8:40) That’s an educated and intelligent faith. That faith is must bring forth the indented fruit for which it was sent; it must land on the ground like that plane, which was not only designed to fly, but also take off and land somewhere else.

Faith is God’s gift; (1 Corinthians 12:9) this divine power affects the miraculous in our lives. The exclusion of this possibility brings detrimental sadness into our lives, which blinds us for we have limited ourselves with just the tangible and the seen. We activate only the natural man and neglect the spiritual man. Just as there is a need to prepare a place for love or peace in our lives we must also prepare room for God’s gift of faith.
