Only Begotten Son

 

 

The phrase “only begotten son” occurs only five times in Scripture, once in reference to Abraham’s son Isaac, and four times in reference to Jacob who’s the ONLY person in Scripture who God refers to as my firstborn son, or specifically “my son, even my firstborn”:

 

 

John 1:18  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

Heb 11:17  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

 

1Jo 4:9  In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

 

 

It would be easy enough to believe that one or any of these verses refer to Jesus—except that this would require you to believe that God LIED when he called Jacob “my firstborn son”.

 

Exodus 4:22  And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:

 

 

Had Jesus been the “only begotten son” of God, then Jacob simply could NOT have been the firstborn son of God.  Had these verses referred to “the secondborn son of God”, then we could argue that they were references to Jesus.  But since we KNOW from Scripture, and since Jesus and His Twelve Disciples and all the other authors of the Holy Bible, knew from Scripture, that it was JACOB who was the firstborn son of God, then we know that they knew that this was NOT a reference to Jesus when they wrote it.

 

The church and the jews and judeochristians are content to let us believe that it DOES refer to Jesus, and therefore that Jesus “changed His mind” [or LIED, or worse was disingenuous to the max], when He said He was sent only to the House of Israel, and when He commanded His Twelve Disciples to go only to the House of Israel, and that God Himself LIED when He made the everlasting covenant with Jacob, by the following verses:

 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God

 

Which “world” did God “love” when He commanded the Israelites, the descendants of His firstborn son Jacob, to totally destroy the Adamites in Deuteronomy, when He killed all the firstborn of the Egyptians in Exodus, when He banned Ammonites and Moabites and mamzers from His congregation “forever” in the Torah, when He said "I LOVE Jacob and HATE Esau" [whose descendants are the Edomites, which today's jews claim are their ancestors], and when He severely punished Israelites up to and including King Solomon for intermarrying with Canaanites, Ammonites, Egyptians, and Assyrians?

 

Who were the ONLY beneficiaries of God’s Love?

 

ISRAELITES.

 

It was THEIR “WORLD”, and nobody else’s, who God so loved that He gave his only begotten son, AND His firstborn son--and that ONE person was Jacob, not Jesus.

 

Furthermore, Jesus spoke of this in the past tense, not the future tense.  He said that God “GAVE”, not will give, His only begotten son, yet Jesus has not yet been crucified.  Yes, Jesus WAS a son of God, but so are all Israelites, and no Israelite but Jacob, not even Jesus, can be the “only begotten son” of God if Jacob was the firstborn son of God.  John 3:16 is not a NEW concept—it’s straight from the “old” testament.  John 3:16 doesn’t abolish the everlasting covenant God made with Abraham through Jacob—it reaffirms it.  And most of all, John 3:16 doesn’t claim that Jesus was God in the flesh, and supposedly contradicting what Jesus Himself said about His being the SON of god—it confirms precisely what Jesus said, that He was he SON of God.

 

Of course it’s easy to misunderstand or misinterpret or misrepresent this verse—but it’s much easier for Israelites to KNOW it.  It’s easy for churches and jews and judeochristians to confuse themselves with this verse—but it’s much easier for Israelites who discern the Word of God to dispel that confusion.  It’s easy for Masoretic jews and KJV translators and King James and popes to use this verse to LIE to us about who they think Jesus was—but it’s EASY in the age of supercomputers on our desktops, the internet, and rapid access to experts, and to electronic dictionaries, concordances, and encyclopedias, for us to refute those LIES, once and for all.
