The Great Satanic Trinitarian Deception
“…but as to the Son, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.”
Many will explain the verse like this, “God the Father looks at ‘God the Son’ and says, “Thy throne O God,” thus Jesus is God!
This verse is used as a blatant deception to try and get people to think Jesus is God to try and prove the Trinity doctrine. They not only take the Hebrews 1:8 out of context, but Hebrews 1:8 itself is a quote from Psalms, but they have the author of Hebrews taking that quote out of context as well! Hebrews 1:8 seems to be the safety net for all Trinitarians to prove the Trinity doctrine.
Hebrews 1:8 can be easily shown that it is not God (the Father) speaking to God (the Son), saying “Thy throne O God.” Just by reading the original TEXT that the author of Hebrews herein quotes:
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; on account of this God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your fellows. –Psalms 45:6-7
Who says, “Thy throne O God” in Psalms 45:6? Is it the “Father” here speaking to the Son? Actually, no, it is King David, the author of Psalms speaking to the God of Heaven!
Just look at Psalms 45:1,
My heart is overflowing with a good matter. I am speaking of my works to the King; my tongue is the pen of a rapid writer.
In Psalms 45:6, King David writes, “Thy throne, O God.” Yet the author of Hebrews begins his quote of those verses with, “But unto the Son he saith.”
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. -Heb. 1:8
What does the author of Hebrews mean by “Unto the son he saith?” The Trinitarians read Hebrews 1:8 and then STOP and conclude that the HALF QUOTE “Thy throne O God” is the context of the statement “Unto the Son he saith.” But the author of Hebrews does not just quote Psalms 45:6 but also 45:7. Hebrews 1:9 therefore cannot be left off without DELIBERATE deception! For the CONTEXT of Hebrews Heb. 1:8 and 1:9 is Christ’s pre-eminence over the angels and his status as HEIR APPARENT to the throne of God. It is Christ’s righteousness which is the scepter of righteousness mentioned in Hebrews 1:8, and it is Christ who is anointed above his fellows (angels) in Heb.1:9.
Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. – Hebrews 1:9 and Psalms 45:7
By reading “Unto the Son he saith,” and then reading ONLY a partial quote “Thy throne, O God,” the Trinitarians DELIBERATELY DECEIVE you into thinking the Father is talking to the Son.
The part of the quote which is meant for the Son or “Unto the Son” is never read, namely, Heb. 1:9 (Psalms 45:7) which is the CONTEXT of Hebrews 1 to begin with!
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds. –Heb. 1:1-2
As is clearly seen here, the subject (context) of the chapter is Christ’s appointment as “heir” to the throne and his elevation in rank above the ANGELS – A theme that is repeated over and over again in the chapter.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. –Heb. 1:3-4
Trinitarians never read these verses prior to or after Hebrews 1:8 and now we see why. For common sense dictates that if Christ is God from the start, then He does not have to “obtain” a name that is above the angels! And notice that in Hebrews 1:4 it states that Christ is “made” or “created.”
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
When we are done studying Hebrews 1, it will leave the HONEST student puzzled how ANYONE could come away from the chapter thinking its author preached “Trinity.” Take for example the way the author points out that God felt it necessary to make it CLEAR to the angels that His Son was “above” them in rank!
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.–Heb. 1:5-6
Common sense dictates that if Christ is God from the very beginning, why would God have to tell the angels to worship him? Did not the angels know? Is Trinity a mystery to THEM as well? Yet here it is that the Trinitarians will continually FAIL in their spiritual UNDERSTANDING! Because Christ is NOT the ONLY “Son” discussed in Hebrews chapter 1.
We who have been given power to become the Sons of God through his name are INCLUDED! This is why the author, when speaking of Christ, says the “first begotten” (Heb. 1:6). It is also why he includes chapter 1 with this statement:
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? –Heb. 1:14
The context of Hebrews 1 is about Christ as the heir and his promotion above the angels but it includes his BODY, and all fellow heirs! Which is ALL the sons of whom he is the “firstborn among his many brethren.”
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. -Rom. 8:29
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. –Rom. 8:17
So what does all this mean? According to the author of Hebrews, the blessing given to “the Son” are also given to “the heirs” or “joint heirs” with him! If this were not so, then they could not be called “joint heirs” nor could they be referred to as “fellow” heirs with Christ!
If Trinitarians are correct in their understanding of these verses, we, being fellow heirs and joint heirs with Christ therefore are included in which case, according to their interpretation, unto US God has said, “Thy throne O God!” Nothing shows that the Trinitarians do NOT understand what it means to be a “Son of God” more than their handling of Hebrews chapter 1. Their reading it in the way they do demonstrates that they don’t BELIEVE they have “equal” status as Sons of God and brethren of Christ! In CLEAR contradiction to all the teachings of the apostles!
In fact, that is the PURPOSE of the Trinity – to take away our inheritance in Christ, and to ROB US of all that God has offered – to make Christ ‘unattainable’. Thus, Trinitarians make the STATUS as “Son of God” and “heir” to be exclusive to Christ and to be an indication of his “divine nature” and his membership in a triune Godhead!
If that does not rob us of our inheritance as “fellow heirs” and brethren (Sons of God), then I don’t know what does, for if Christ’s status as “Son” comes from his being “God incarnate,” then NONE OF US are truly “Sons of God” and the apostles were all LIARS!
