the Almighty (not Unlimited, after all)

revelation-throne2a

In accordance to all the-World’s religions, and with some non-religious divine organizations as well, it is globally believed (figuratively felt) that the biblical God (in whom is known to be the Creator of all creations, and as the All Powerful/Almighty) is a force that’s unlimited: that there’s absolutely no impossibility with this God:  That this God is boundless, and all-encompassing.  Most collective conscious believers have faith in this boundless conception due to miracles inscribed in the scriptures: and one of them, for starters, is the creation of life itself; especially life that is created in the image of the biblical God (that is, life with sentience/awareness).

To most religious believers, there are certain inspiring scripture entries that indicate when God describes itself as the Almighty (or the All Powerful):  In Exodus chapter 6, verse 3, it reads, “…And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty…”  In 2nd Corinthians chapter 6, verse 18, it reads, “…And I will become a father to you, and you will become sons and daughters to me,’ says Jehovah (Yahweh/Yahowah/the Lord/God/G_d), the Almighty…’”  In Genesis chapter 1, verse 27, there is the most popular creation entry that the biblical God has ever created, and it reads, “…And God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them…:” and in Genesis chapter 2, verse 7, it goes on distinctively further to specifically describe the creation of man; and it reads, “…And Jehovah God went on to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living soul (a living person)…”  As a biblical God of just and righteousness, there are some fear inspiring scripture entries in whereas God is an unyielding Judge, taking destructive measures to rid of unjust and evil people (e.g., Noah’s flood—Genesis 6: 9-22; 7: 1-24:  The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, with the wife of Lot turning into a plural of salt—Genesis 19: 1-29:  The prophesied destruction of Babylon—Jeremiah 51: 1-59:  The foretold destruction of Jerusalem, by the invasion of the Roman armies; shortly happening thereafter the death of Jesus Christ, as prophesied by Jesus himself—Matthew 24: 15-20); and imposing strict punishment as a reward for some evil deeds (e.g., the death penalty sentence of Adam’s and Eve’s life, because of their direct disobedience toward their Creator itself—Genesis 3: 1-19).  There are even scriptural entries that can be breathtaking for believers in the resurrection of the human life from death (e.g., the story of a widower’s son who has died, and with the aid of God’s power, the prophet Elijah brought her son back to life—1st Kings 17: 17-24:  The story of the Apostle Peter resurrecting Dorcas’ life from death with the aid of God’s power—Acts 9: 36-43:  And the most famous biblical history of Jesus Christ, resurrecting a dead man, Lazarus, back to life with the aid of his Father, God Almighty—John 11: 38-53).  This biblical God is also famously known as a God with love that is unsurpassed; and this is scripturally evident in the biblical entry of John chapter 3, verse 16; and it reads, “…For God loved the world so much that he gave his onlybegotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life…:'” thus indicating the enormity of God’s love by sacrificing his onlydirect alpha creation, in whom became the earthly prophesied Jesus Christ, to be sacrificed in our behalf.  It is to no wonder, or surprise, that a God with so much capacity to create life with sentience, to enforce justice and judgement upon the unjust and evil, to resurrect the dead back to life, and to sacrifice his onlydirect created creature (in whom is known to be the-Alpha itself) for his love’s own sake toward humanity, religious believers tend to have faith that this biblical God is limitless, omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent.  Especially, that this God is without a progenitor (fatherless and motherless), without genealogy and lineage; being rootless, without a beginning and without an ending, indubitably self-certifies to ensure humankind that His sacrifice of his onlybegotten Son, Jesus the Messiah, will remain a celestial priest for us, perpetually—Hebrew 7:3: to rule from the heavens above, and to soon return to the earth to bring his Father’s judgement onto the-World(s).  It is then to no surprise as to why religious believers stipulate that the biblical God has unlimited powers and capacities.  But is the biblical God really unlimited with its power and capacities?  If not, to what extent then is its limits, and its possible bounding and encompassed power?  The fact that this God’s power is made in scriptural reference as a literal power (energy) that’s Almighty, pretty much indicates that this God may not be all-encompassing, after all:  It is then reasonably possible that this God of the bible may not be able to encompass every single thing.

Power is Power

It is logically safe to reason that all creations (e.g., all animate creatures and inanimate creations) are all made of some form of literal energy (excluding the figurative and the metaphorical power).  Of course they’ll be many others to debate that not every single thing that exists is made of energy:  Perhaps, that may be so, but that’s only true when one isolates a substance from an overall body; e.g., one can simply pick up a mineral and say that this particular rock is a substance without power/energy:  However, that piece of rock is just part of a greater whole substance, which is our very own planet Earth.  When you look at the earth’s view from the moon, you can tell that that particular sphere is made of energy.  When you study what it is made of, you’ll realize that the earth harbors all sorts of forces (e.g., storms, fires, lava, explosive volcanoes, earthquakes, plate-shifting, magnetic fields that shields it, a very powerful heat in the core to keep it warm from within, in order to sustain creatures and creations as well), and you’ll then begin to acknowledge, and admit, that the piece of rock that one may have referred to it as powerless, is actually a part that makes up a whole greater power in its totality:  And that piece of rock could be likened as a part of the lower layer of the earth’s dermis; and the ozone layer could be likened as the upper layer of the earth’s dermis, all together, encompassing and containing its energy; therefore, existing as a total power that it is.  Also, take for example of our sun, our solar star produces energy by nuclear fusion in its very core; and that fusion is generated with hydrogen into helium:  Since there is a huge amount of hydrogen in the sun’s core, those atoms stick together and fuse into a helium atom; this energy is then radiated out from the core and moves across throuhout our solar system.  Our solar star’s photosphere (which is the visible surface of the Sun) is where visible sunlight is free to propagate into space (move into space):  Its’ core is the only part that produces an appreciable amount of heat (about 99% of it).  And because our sun is made of a contained energy (in which every single thing that is made of energy is fully encompassed: no exceptions), the sun is measured with limitations in references to measurements with height, width, depth, circumference and intensity of heat: we won’t go into further specific detailed measurements of the Sun’s power.  The fact is, that every single thing that exists are made of energy; and therefore, limited in accordance to its own measurements that’s encompassed within its own boundary.  Everything and everyone that exist must exist as energy, or existence in of itself is impossible.

power 00a

Most people would assume that power is made of extreme heat (e.g., fire, lava, electricity, solar, lightning, storms like hurricanes and tornadoes, etc.), but the matter of the fact is, power doesn’t always have to be one specific kind.  Take for example, even the human souls (animating physical bodies) are powers too; but more like biological powers.  We know this because we generate heat from within our souls (i.e., souls here are referred to as the literal physical animating bodies; not the figurative and metaphorical spirit).  And even though we don’t have fire within us; no solar core fusion as well, we still produce heat when we exert our anima, and when we become ill, our temperatures rises.  So even though our souls are made of nothing more but transient elements (e.g., made of blood, muscles, bones, organs, tissues and liquids), we’re still encompassed with a layer protection of our largest organ, which is the skin: held together, within symmetrical measurements, to contain our biological energy in order to sustain us alive.  And within this sole biological energy of ours, we are limited with such force, for there is only so much that we can do with such a force:  Our bio-energies also depend upon environmental forces to maintain us appropriately healthy and alive, that is, for as long as it can (e.g., we need the energy of our sun; and the energy supply of oxygencombined also with hydrogento keep us hydrated, and nutrients of all sorts as well, if we are to ever exist within the encompassed and protected energy of our Earth).  So the only source of our internal bio-energy that we all have, so it seems, is not at all independent after all; in other words, it is not “self-sustaining:”  And that, my reader, is absolutely the limitation of the literal human power.

So power comes in many different forms, sizes, shapes, colors, heat and impacts (some powers come in many different forms of mindless soulsas for all kinds of animals and insects, even including the microorganism/microscopic ones:  And even the mindful souls with life itselfwhich is pertaining only to mankind; and anything else that’s alive with energetic sentience—awareness—that’s above mankind: for example, the biblical angles and spirits:  And yes, even the non-biblical gods, if there are any:  But most of all, including the famously known, the All Powerful/Almighty One, the biblical Godin which “He” (Jehovah/Yahweh/Yahowah/the Lord/G_d) is known to be the Creator of beginning itself, and of all creations and creatures; and therefore, the Originthat is without origin itselfof all).  With all this in mind, the rule of order, numbers and logic is that everything and everyone that exists, are made of power; and power therefore, is in no way an exception to the rule of space, great or small.  Even the empirical Big-Bang is in no exception to space either:  There can be no “Big-Bang,” if there’s no space before its commencement, to bang powerfully into existence; and therefore, could not itself be responsible to have form/create space before there was none.  No theocratic, scientific and theoretical account of any existing thing is spatial exemption and exception: all are bound by the usage of space; even the biblical God itself is compelled to space as well: and since this God is known to be a God without a beginning, that means then that space itself too is without a beginning.  Therefore, you (the reader) has just been informed of the very first limitation that’s applied to every single existing thing and person.  And that, my reader, is that no one, absolutely no one, is exempt to exist out of space, that is, if there was such a region.  Without space for us to exist in, and move on about therein, we (including the Creator itself) simply cannot and will not exist.  Therefore, that is the very first limitation.  And what then is the second limitation?  Well, when referring to anything else that’s in contrast to the biblical God, the limitations are outrageously numerous, almost endless; so my being simply cannot write them all down:  However, when referring to the birthless Creator itself, the numbers are incredibly low:  As a matter of fact, absurdly low.  Hence, besides the first circumscription of being bound by and in space, there are two more known maximums pertaining to the God of the bible.  And the following second one is actually scriptural.

 ‘Self-Restraining’ Self

self restraint

It is known throughout mankind’s generations, that we have always been a species to try and self-govern our-selves as a country, in one unison.  Creating laws to sustain neighborhoods, communities and collective social engagements, as well as the economical statuses, successfully.  Some laws are objective, while very little are subjective and figurative:  The laws that are objective are based on facts, evidences and proofs, that can help one to achieve a point of understanding beyond a reasonable doubt; which are mostly distributed through judicial facilities (e.g., courts, judicial branches, etc.):  The laws that are subjective/figurative are based on issues that are emotionally connoted; such as, morals, principles, virtues and ethics; which are mostly distributed through theocratic facilities (e.g., religious denominations; such as churches, shrines and temples).  These multiple facilities are structured as institutions, to put into operation and establish a law self-governing environment; to prevent injustices while enacting justice:  In this way, we can try to live in a world free of crimes, extortioners, destructive and abusive collective social communities, murderers, thieves and violators; while all along, constituting a safe collective peaceful environment for all, as possible.  The institutions of religion, family, education, entertainment and business are what suppose to be responsible to consistently distribute these laws, in order to then maintain a “self-governing” society.  As much as our species try to collectively become self-restraining for constructive life and purposes, not everyone is willing to ride with the waves; and instead, some wind up swimming against the currents, which is mostly due to oppression and the inability of the law to provide a free segregated and crime environment.  So it seems that as much as mankind tend to collectively self-govern them-selves, their effort then in unified self-restraint, to then composite self-reliance, aborts as soon as it begins.  And even in a sole individual basis, many tend to abort their efforts in self-restraining as soon as circumstances becomes increasingly challenging, precarious, painful and stressful; lacking of communications; self-disposing in isolation, loneliness and anxiety; and most of all, the inadequate stratum of physical gratificationssuch as poverty with food and shelter, and the deficit in sexual performances and engagements.  You may have a few successful well known self-restraining collective individuals in history books, or someone that you may personally know in your neighborhood or family, but that only still pertains to a sole individual’s efforts, and therefore, unable to perform a successful effort in establishing a collective (safe and peaceful) “self-governing” society.  But what exactly may all this pertain to the biblical God?  What does any of this have to do with the well known Genesis Creator?  You may ask.

In the New International Version scriptural passage, at 1 Corinthians, chapter 14: verse 33, it states, “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace…”  In verse 40, it states, “But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way:”  In the King James Version bible, the same verse 33 starts like this, “For God is not the author of confusion…”  This indicates that the God of the bible is in any way not confused about its orderly way and fashion; as a matter of fact, it is so much without confusion that it is also ‘fitting.’  So just like the species of humans, the Uncreature (the-Creator of Genesis) is also “self-restraint,” by establishing unto itself, and unto everything else besides itself, laws that are orderly and fitting; utterly without confusion.  So that means, that a law of God must be clear, precise; without mystery, and without any confusing open subjective debates:  There should not be any puzzling doctrines and beliefs in putting faith and works in the law of the biblical God.  But unlike mankind, this God’s own effort in self-restraining itself, with laws that are utterly without confusions, is very unswerving when it comes to up-keeping and upholding them.  As a matter of fact, the scriptures indicate that, “He [God] loves righteousness and justice…” (Psalm 33:5).  This God loves it so much, that its effort in law abiding ‘self-restraint’ is impossible to break.  In other words, this God cannot, and will not, tell a lie nor change its laws, because it is impossible to do so; and there are three scriptures that indicate of such unbreakable self-restraining law abiding God, in its perfection (and they are:  Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29; and Hebrews 6:18).  So this is the second thing that it is impossible for this God to do; that no matter how powerful and Almighty IT itself is, it is impossible for this God to lie in any way, form, fashion and manner.

But many may still argue that this impossibility of this God is actually, “self-imposed;” and not really because of lacking in actual power and capacity:  So some may concur that this divine impossibility doesn’t really count.  And also, the fact that this Almighty (All Powerful) God could not exist without space, is really no big thing because it is to be expected, just like us as well:  Many will then continue to argue that there’s then no real impossibility here because just like this ‘birthless’ God is, so is space itself is, without a beginning.  This may then bring many to stipulate, So give us one actual thing that is utterly impossible for the biblical God to do; so that even if this God wanted to do it, He couldn’t because He simply lacks the power and capacity to do so…is there such an impossibility?”  Indeed, there is but one such objective impossibility:  That even if the-Creator of Genesis wanted so badly to do it, IT could not, no matter how powerful and Almighty this God is.

Birthing the Birthless

George_Duperon_003_Birthless

Most of Christian faiths (e.g., Catholics; Catholic Jews; Pentecostals; Baptists; Methodists; Evangelists; Lutherans; Amish; Adventists; Charismatics; Quakers; etc.), and non-Christian faith (e.g., Judaism), has globally stipulated, throughout the generations, that there is absolutely nothing impossible for the Torah/Talmudic/biblical God to do.  And even in Muslism, it is also believed that their Allah (God) is also One who is without impossibilities.  You even have your non-denominational faiths (e.g., spirituality, spiritualism, occultism, etc.), and your other Vedic religions and connections (e.g., Buddhism, Taoism, Shintoism, Hinduism, etc.) that stipulate the same thing with their Creators: that they all serve, or tap into, a divine force in which there is absolutely no impossibility.  But the oddest of all this is that the only God to acclaim to be without a beginning, and without an ending, is the God of the Torah/Talmud/bible, or any other “gods” that copied that state of existence from biblical origin:  Either way, the existing condition of a God (Creator) being birthless and deathless, is of Torah and Talmudic origins, later translated by some Christians into a condensed collection of little books (biblias), referred mostly as the “Old Testament:” then coupled together with the translation of the Greek Septuagint texts, later called as the “New Testament:” and there you have the making of The-Bible.  But even some many non-religious people (e.g., atheists, agnostics, humanists, etc.) have some idea of what they were taught in their former religious upbringing, about a God that’s birthless and deathless.  This then only proves that somewhere, in the back of the head of most everybody’s brain and mind, are aware of some form of force that is without alpha, and without omega; and thus, understood by most as a God/Creator/Force that is absolutely without impossibilities: permeated then as a global collective conscious, that somewhere (out there) there is after all, something (or someone), without impossibilities.  But such collective global consciousness is still permanently in its infancy, no matter how colloquial and intelligent such belief has evolved in its many languages, and existed unanimously in some way, form or manner for many generations.  Indeed, even for a God that is without alpha, and without omega, being the only one that is Immortal in the most genuine and truest literal form, there is after all, one true genuine impossibility: so true, that this one particular literal restriction is utterly without any form of confusion(s), and not open to be opened for debates, and to be puzzled in mysteries and myths either.  It is literal, that no matter how Almighty this God is; no matter how All Powerful IT is; there is actually one limited condition for One in whom is globally known to be The Absolute (without limits).

Quixotical Trilogy

Every single creature and creation, both in the heavens (universe) and in the Earth, has a beginning, and an ending (somethings may live on for thousands and thousands of years before they end; but eventually they do expire).  The only persons, that most people know that live without end, are mentioned of divine inspired scrolls/scriptures (e.g., angels, cherubim, and Seraph); and these angelic creatures, although they are known to live without an end, they still had a beginning; hence, the term ‘creature’ is still applied to them.  The only person that lives without an ending, and who also is without a beginning, is the ‘Uncreature‘ itself (the uncreated biblical God, who created all).  You, the reader, are known to have your own genesis:  As a child that you were once, is proof of your own birth (beginning).  And if you are a Christian individual of great and profound faith, you’re probably convinced that you pray to a God that has no limitations; a God of total absolute.  Most Christians pray to a Trinity God (in which God the Father, God the SonJesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit, are but one in the same): this does then imply that the promised anointed one (the Messianic King/Christ) was really God in the flesh; that the inscribed scripture at John 3:16 is not really implying to an actual ‘only-begotten son’ that was sent forth in the Earth, but implying instead that it was really God (the Uncreature) in the flesh as a son (a creature), as Jesus Christ.  In this state of faith, one believes that this God is then a God without impossibilities: a God without utter limitations.  But if you, the reader, are a person who has great faith in the Holy Trinity, or if you’re just curious to know what does any of this has to do with the biblical God, as to whether this God is either limited or not; the answer, my reader, it’s logged in that very doctrine.

 If you are a person of Christian faith, and you strongly believe in the Holy Trinity God, in which all religious Christians do, you probably pray in any physical posture as possible, and start asking away at a God that is the-Absolute.  But there is “absolutely” one thing that if you were to pray for it, this biblical God, even if “He” wanted to, could not find it in its power to grant it to you; and whether you would determine the value or the merits of such a request, it does not matter:  What matter is that if its asked for, by you or anyone else, in both the heavens and the Earth, this God (your God) could not literally grant it even if “He” wanted to.  You might ask, “Okay, what then is that one impossible request that the biblical God cannot grant even if “He” wanted to?”

Is it impossible to pray to God for everlasting life, and be granted of such a request if “He” wanted to?  No, it isn’t impossible.

Is it impossible to pray to God, before you die, to be raised from the dead, and be granted of such a request if “He” wanted to?  No, it isn’t impossible.

Is it then impossible to pray to God to make you into a person without a beginning, and be granted of such a request if “He” wanted to?  Yes, it is impossible.

the_holy_trinity

The biblical God (in whom is described also of Talmudic and Torah scrolls) cannot simply make one who has a beginning, into one who is without a beginning.  If you, the reader, would ask the biblical God to make you into one who has always existed without a beginning, that would be an irrational and illogical request, because such a God could not give you such a request, even if such a God wanted to give it to you.  Perhaps, under pretense (under a lie), this God could do it anyway; by means of placing your name in every single historical books (including the bible): and placing your form of being and name in every single person’s mind and brain:  But that would be a lie, which is also, as stated above, another self-initiated impossibility.  So even under pretense, this God cannot grant such a request.  Hence, it is utterly and totally impossible for the biblical God to make one with a beginning into one without a beginning; and therefore, also impossible to make one without a beginning into one with a beginning.

In other words, it is utterly impossible for the biblical God, in who itself is without a beginning, give itself a beginning.  It is impossible for this uncreated God itself to make itself created (i.e., the Uncreature cannot become a creature); and since Jesus Christ is a creature (of flesh that has a beginning), it is impossible to then even suggests that such a creature is the-Uncreature itself.  Hence, the Creator of all creations and creatures cannot create an uncreated living person.:  In other words, it is impossible for the Creator of all persons and things, to create another God like itself.  There is then, indubitably, no absolutes whatsoever.  All energies, great or small, divine or flesh, are encompassed within a limitall.

So as it is, according to logic and reason, the Holy Trinity is, after all, false.  But not because such a doctrine is either debatable, subjective, perspective, or open:  It’s not because one is either skeptic or believing; or that one either has faith in such a doctrine, or not; and it’s definitely not because it is a mystery, or confusing since we did learn, after all, that the biblical God is not a God of confusion; and it’s not because the Pope, reverends, priests, pastors, and others alike that support such a doctrine, stipulates that such a Divine being exists:  It is instead because of one simple thing, in that, it is impossible for such a God to make itself into One with a beginning when IT itself is without a beginning.  Simply put, because it is impossible for the One who is birthless itself, becomes birthed.

The Holy Trinity God is then impossible to exist, even for God itself:  Such a doctrine is then nothing more but a superb allegorical and fantastical concept: an axiom at its utmost best, because it supersedes even the ability and capacity of God itself.

The only absolute then, is that, there are no absolutes.

3 thoughts on “the Almighty (not Unlimited, after all)

  1. I initially sent this (edited slightly here) to a buddy of mine who had re-blogged this, and decided I’d go ahead and comment as well. I will preface this by saying I’m currently at work, so I’ve not been able to read this in the depth I would like. Also, I do realize this is several months old, lol. Also, as will become obvious, I am a ‘Trinitarian’ Christian.

    First and foremost, it seems to me that the opening premise itself is somewhat flawed. The Hebrew terms translated as “Almighty” don’t … really… mean that. For example, the Exodus quote; “…And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as *El Elyon*…” — rendered “God Most High” most accurately (according to current scholarship, anyway). This indicates that, to the earliest believers — pagans and henotheists — God/YHWH did not reveal His full nature, but rather revealed Himself as, essentially, the pinnacle of the pantheon. Basically, any attempt to decode the essence of God which goes forward using assumptions garnered from early Modern English tries at rendering esoteric ancient Hebrew concepts is fundamentally flawed in my mind.

    I do like your points about the Big Bang in and of itself being as “impossible” and incomprehensible as the Genesis narrative, and its Trinitarian interpretation in particular. However, my understanding of it is that the three aspects of God co-exist co-eternally. Like, Christ is the creative impulse, “the Word”, made flesh — and it’s admittedly a murky concept, but does a word need to be spoken to already exist? This essay seems to posit that. Or else, possibly, just has an entirely incorrect view of what Jesus is (or, was pre-incarnate). The traditional view, and mine, is that Jesus existed before being born on this planet, so that kinda makes it a moot point.

    It’s not that God the Father is superior to, or necessarily ‘created’ the other aspects of the Trinity. It is hard to put into words, admittedly, because I was initially going to say that they “emanate” from Him, but this is not wholly accurate. I will admit I actually cannot come up with an explanation of this, as I understand it, using human language. I’m going to continue to think about this one.

    That said… It’s not that God cannot make “you” into a being without beginning. It’s that for Jesus he did not need to. And while I cannot “know the mind of God”, I can’t see a situation where that’d be beneficial going forward. And it is not that God cannot break His own laws — it’s that KEEPING THEM IS THE CORE ASPECT OF HIS CHARACTER, as revealed to us.

    Last few thing, and this is all “new” (ie, not copypasted and either slightly edited or expanded upon from my earlier message to the re-poster): It’s not that God is objectively incapable of giving Himself a beginning. It’s that this is useless, and for the purposes of humans on Planet Earth (at least) is an essentially meaningless distinction. And moreover, I’m not sure I can picture anyone with sound faith and reason praying for such. I don’t want to get into the habit of writing off your, largely valid (if erroneous IMO) points with “well, it’s a distinction that is irrelevant” — but I feel there are a few instances where THAT is relevant.

    I will grant that it is CONCEIVABLE that God’s “omnipotence” relates more to humans than to the greater cosmic scope. But, again, what’s the difference? Whatever the nature of God, he attempts to reveal it (piecemeal, it would seem) to us in ways He knows we will understand. God’s revelation is ongoing — and I truly believe that despite my faith in Jesus as the Christ.

    1. Hi, let my being first begin by thanking you in taking your time in reading my article. All readers, whether in agreement or not, are welcomed. My being has received many email replies about this particular article. Thank you.

      In reference to the Hebrew phrase “El Elyon,” is simply a reminder that the biblical God is above all else; and that ‘He’ is just not merely mighty, but “omnipotent” (the Latin term for, “Almighty”). The Latin phrase “omnipotent,” for the Hebrew phrase “elyon,” is then not far from the fact that the God of the bible is simply above all creations; and therefore, above any alpha(s). This simply indicates that anything, or anyone (either from heaven or earth) that is of creation origin, is not equaled to “El Elyon.” Therefore, anyone of “begotten origin” is then lower than “God the Highest.” Nothing then that starts can be higher than the One that is without start.

      In reference to the assertion that this article has taken the attempt to “decode” the essence of God is quite the opposite. This article brings out the fact that the God of the bible is not coded to begin with—and that the doctrine of the Holy Trinity does just the opposite—that it codes the biblical God—and thus making such a God a mystery; or as you put it, a “murky concept.”

      And as to whether Jesus exists as “pre-incarnate” is really not a “moot point.” Because even all the angels and cherubs; and yes, even Satan and his demons too, existed for eons, and eons, and eons before the earth: so that in of itself is not a mystery. Even in the days of Noah, the scriptures indicate that the angels (“the sons of God”—A Hebrew idiom that refers to angelic sons of God) began to lust after the daughters of men, and that they took upon themselves to form as fleshly men, and took for themselves some women as their wives, and had sexual intercourse with them; that eventually, their wives bore sons to them that gradually grew into Nephʹi·lim (a Hebrew phrase indicating “giants”—or “The Fellers”—those who cause others to fall down)—Genesis 6: 1-4. So even then, angels were known to self-induce as pre-incarnates—so the fact as someone being “pre-incarnate” is not really called for surprising measures when others from above, before Jesus, were self-manifested as such already.

      It is not feasible to suggest that something can “emanate” from something that is not a creation. If it were possible that something could “emanate” from the biblical God, the emanation itself would simply be just like the Creator itself, which is impossible: for you cannot emanate something without origin. In other words, the God of the bible cannot “emanate” anything of and from itself when ‘He’ itself is without any form of emanation. All ‘He’ can do is, create something apart from ‘Himself.’ The making and compositions of the biblical God is not of creation substance; ‘His’ essence is beyond of start manifestations.

      The fact as to whether the biblical God can or cannot give ‘Himself’ a beginning is of useful information, and still is of beneficial enlightenment for the purpose of all humans on this planet we all live in: The Creator’s distinctions are very essential in their meanings—making distinctions as to what extent variable limitations can go up to. For example, the distinctions and differences between an ape and a man is what determines their limitations—by then knowing their distinctions as essential, we can determine that the theory of evolution does not hold up. In like same manner, by taking the distinction of God’s capacities and capabilities in consideration, as an essential, we can then determine that even the God of the bible has a limitation (however, a limitation that only concerns ‘Him’)—which is what this whole article is all about. You may ask as to why this is essential? To protect ourselves from the alpha of resistance and rebellion—the liar, Satan.

      And the fact that you made your-self distinctive to begin with, as a ‘Trinitarian Christian,’ when you first introduced your-self, is not a just introductory statement if you’re going to assert other distinctions in this body as “irrelevant.” But you are entitled to still consider any distinction in this article as irrelevant if you wish: however, keep in mind that when you do make such a partisan statement, you only speak in behalf of those who are Trinitarian Christian by choice and conviction, and not for the entire world(s).

      Whatever the God of the bible reveals of ‘Himself’ by piecemeal at a time, is not by decoding ‘Him.’ For even the Creator said that ‘He’ itself will reveal ‘Himself’ in due time. This is not to concur that the Creator is a mystery in of ‘Himself,’ but simply ‘He’ is withholding aspects of ‘Himself’ that’s already known by every angelic heavenly creature, from us earthly creatures. And that is not ‘Him’ being murky, nor moot, nor an enigma: That is simply ‘Him’ just withholding for the meantime, “For God is not a God of confusion [mystery]…”—1st Corinthians 14:33 (English Standard Version).

      My being is sorry that IT itself cannot help you subjectively, for this article is solely objective. But if you like, you can share this article with other Christians that may not figuratively believe in the doctrine of the Trinity, and debate the issue on subjective Trinitarian understandings and faiths with them. This article is solely based on an objective acknowledgement that the God of the bible does have a limitation, after all (i.e., the limitation that ‘He’ cannot create something or someone without a beginning; nor can ‘He’ turn a start without a start—that ‘He’ simply cannot make ‘Himself’ as an alpha when ‘He’ itself is without alpha). And that ‘His’ very limitation, that you consider as irrelevant, is what actually determines ‘Him’ as the Highest; for no one else has to be concerned with this limitation—not even Jesus him-self.

      Anyone or anything without limitation cannot exist; not even the Creator ‘Himself’ can exist without ‘His’ sole limitation. A power that is imagined as unlimited is purely transcendence (a mental idealistic essence that is beyond even manifestation itself; even beyond itself as well—forever, in “beyondedness”). There is no such a thing, for such a thing can only exist in the-Mind, and not in actuality—not in any sense of actual manifestation.

      Indeed, objective (not subjective) divine distinctions are essential, for they are the differences that help determine ‘His’ limitations: and by means of ‘His’ objective limitations, the Highest is then both feasible and conceivable.
