ANOINTING OF JESUS BY HIS FATHER

  • “At the Saviour’s baptism, Satan was among the witnesses. He saw the Father’s glory overshadowing His Son. He heard the voice of Jehovah testifying to the Divinity of Jesus.” {Ellen White: DA, 116.2}

The teaching of the Trinity claims that the name God “contains” all three Beings, i.e., that it refers to all of Them and that these three Beings took on these “roles” of the Father, the Son, and the holy Spirit only within the framework of the plan of salvation. The Word of God says something else though, and never calls the Trinity by the name of God, but only the Father and the Son:

  • “Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even THY God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” {Hebrews 1:9}
  • “Few realise the full meaning of the words that Christ spoke when, in the synagogue at Nazareth, He announced Himself as the Anointed One.” {Ellen White: AA, p. 416.3}
  • Thy holy Child Jesus, Whom Thou hast anointed” {Ellen White: AA, p. 672}

We read that Jesus is anointed by His God, the Father, not that Jesus anointed the Father. God the Father is above all Beings in the Universe, and also above His Son (God, Your God). With one “triune” God, there is no possibility of Jesus being the real Son of God the Father.
