1John 5:v.7
There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father-The WORD- , the Word-The Word made flesh-JESUS- , and the Holy Spirit (who is not a ghost as is written in English language, but a Person) : and these three are One.
is not the application of "Word" by John made to Messiah/God the Son?

The Eternal Word

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (with the Father), and the Word was God (the Son).
2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life..."

The ONLY “PERSON” in the Godhead ks the Holy Spirit, who is YESHUA/JESUS in the diversity of himself as Father/Lord, and Son/Lord. In the resurrection, the amalgamation of First and Last in the NEW CREATION that is to come
is this a Oneness or/and a Modal view?

"...looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12
"...may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead..." 2 Timothy 2

Do you agree with this?
oh NO
God created us for more than a life of Eternally
vigorous and ever constant flesh management
I was talking about how God must do/does a new creative work within Sinners
not in those who somehow thru some commandments might first stop sinning

"being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;"
Philippians 1

someone was suggesting to Aaron Budjen
that we must first -
"repent of all sins" and "surrender to the Lordship of Jesus"

but that puts the work on us in a Law/Old covenant way
rather than the work God is more than able and willing to begin and then finish in us
and would be false editions to Salvation

teachers/institutions who teach that might like the power/control it gives them
keeping people enthralled to sins

Shmuel thinks the Law has magical life giving powers or something

Messianic Jews with a different view have taught us different

"...without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." John 1

He made us (we do participate in reproducing ourselves)
He then must re-make us

we were born of the flesh and fallen
we must be reborn of the spirit and eventually bodily resurrection/glorification - both His doing completely

17 "For dogs have encompassed me; a company of evil-doers have inclosed me; like a lion, they are at my hands and my feet."

16 "For dogs have surrounded Me;
The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me.
They pierced My hands and My feet;" NKJV

Beyond any transgression of commanded law...

Sin is a principle or a nature. as well as an act Matt 15:19

As an act, sin produced guilt; as a principle, it produced pollution Jer 17:9, Luke 6:45

Because sin is both a nature and an act it produces various results -

the understanding of Man is darkened Rom 1:31, 1 Cor 2:14, Eph 4:8

It produces evil and vain imagination Gen 6:5, 12, Rom 1:21

It produces vile affection or passions Rom 1:26-27

It produces corrupt speech Eph 4:29

It produces a defiled mind and conscience Titus 1:15

It produces an enslaved and depraved will Rom 7:18-19

Sin has an absolute character; it is not some vague influence
Matt 10:32-33, 12:30, Luke11:13, Jas 2:10

Sin always has a relationship to God and His will
Rom 1:32, 2:12-14, 4:15, 5:13, Jas 2:9-10

Concerning guilt, it makes Man liable for punishment
Rom 3:19, 5:18, Eph 2:3

Concerning pollution, all men are guilty of moral pollution in Adam,
because they are born of a corrupt nature - there is a disposition towards evil
Job 14:4, Isaiah 6:5, Jer 17:9, Rom 8:5-8, Eph 4:17-19

Sin influences the intellect, the emotion, and the will and
finds it's expression thru the body
Prov 4:23, Jer 17:19, Matt 15:19-20, Luke 6:45, Heb. 3:12

Sin consists of a sinful nature, Matt 5:22-28
sinful state becomes the basis of sinful habits: Rom 7:7
these sinful habits become the basis of sinful deeds Rom 7:17, 24
