ACCORDING TO THE WRITINGS OF MOSES,
GOD PROMISED ABRAM / ABRAHAM A SON,
A COVENANT CHILD,
ISAAC.

THE BIBLE
NEW KING JAMES VERSION
Genesis 15:1-17:27

"After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward." [2] But Abram said, "Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?" [23] Then Abram said, "Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!" [4] And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir." [5] Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be." [6] And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

[7] Then He said to him, "I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it." [8] And he said, "Lord God, how shall I know that I will inherit it?" [9] So He said to him, "Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon." [10] Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two. [11] And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
[12] Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. [13] Then He said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. [14] And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. [15] Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. [16] But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete."

God’s Land Covenant with Abram / Abraham

[17] And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces. [18] On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: "To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates-- [19] the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, [20] the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, [21] the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."

Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on
Genesis 15:18
-21

In vv. 18-21 this divine revelation is described as the making of a covenant (, from  to cut, lit., the bond concluded by cutting up the sacrificial animals), and the substance of this covenant is embraced in the promise, that God would give that land to the seed of Abram, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates. The river () of Egypt is the Nile, and not the brook () of Egypt (Num 34:5), i.e., the boundary stream Rhinocorura, Wady el Arish. According to the oratorical character of the promise, the two large rivers, the Nile and the Euphrates, are mentioned as the boundaries within which the seed of Abram would possess the promised land, the exact limits of which are more minutely described in the list of the tribes who were then in possession. Ten tribes are mentioned between the southern border of the land and the extreme north, “to convey the impression of universality without exception, of unqualified completeness, the symbol of which is the number ten” (Delitzsch). In other passages we find sometimes seven tribes mentioned (Deut 7:1; Josh 3:10), at other times six (Ex 3:8, 17; 23:23; Deut 20:17), at others five (Ex 13:5), at others again only two (Gen 13:7); whilst occasionally they are all included in the common name of Canaanites (Gen 12:6). The absence of the Hivites is striking here, since they are not omitted from any other list where as many as five or seven tribes are mentioned. Out of the eleven descendants of Canaan (Gen 10:15-18) the names of four only are given here; the others are included in the common name of the Canaanites. On the other hand, four tribes are given, whose descent from Canaan is very improbable. The origin of the Kenites cannot be determined. According to Judg 1:16; 4:11, Hobab, the brother-in-law of Moses, was a Kenite. His being called Midianite (Num 10:29) does not prove that he was descended from Midian (Gen 25:2), but is to be accounted for from the fact that he dwelt in the land of Midian, or among the Midianites (Ex 2:15). This branch of the Kenites went with the Israelites to Canaan, into the wilderness of Judah (Judg 1:16), and dwelt even in Saul’s time among the Amalekites on the southern border of Judah (1 Sam 15:6), and in the same towns with members of the tribe of Judah (1 Sam 30:29). There is nothing either in this passage, or in Num 24:21-22, to compel us to distinguish these Midianitish Kenites from those of Canaan. The Philistines also were not Canaanites, and yet their territory was assigned to the Israelites. And just as the Philistines had forced their way into the land, so the Kenites may have taken possession of certain tracts of the country. All that can be inferred from the two passages is, that there were Kenites outside Midian, who were to be exterminated by the Israelites. On the Kenizzites, all that can be affirmed with certainty is, that the name is neither to be traced to the Edomitish Kenaz (Gen 36:15, 42), nor to be identified with the Kenezite Jephunneh, the father of Caleb of Judah (Num 32:12; Josh 14:6: see my Comm. on Joshua, p. 356, Eng. tr.).—The Kadmonites are never mentioned again, and their origin cannot be determined. On the Perizzites see Gen 13:7; on the Rephaims, Gen 14:5; and on the other names, Gen 10:15-16.

Sarai and Hagar

[Chapter 16:1] Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar. [2] So Sarai said to Abram, "See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her." And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai. [3] Then Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan. [4] So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived.  And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes. [5] Then Sarai said to Abram, "My wrong be upon you! I gave my maid into your embrace; and when she saw that she had conceived, I became despised in her eyes. The Lord judge between you and me." [6] So Abram said to Sarai, "Indeed your maid is in your hand; do to her as you please." And when Sarai dealt harshly with her, she fled from her presence.

Abram's / Abraham's son' name
via Hagar will be Ishmael
 

[7] Now the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur. [8] And He said, "Hagar, Sarai's maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?" She said, "I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai."
[9] The Angel of the Lord said to her, "Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand." [10] Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, "I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for multitude." [11] And the Angel of the Lord said to her:

"Behold, you are with child,
And you shall bear a son.
You shall call his name Ishmael,
Because the Lord has heard your affliction
.
[12]
He shall be a wild man;
His hand shall be against every man,
And every man's hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren
."

[13] Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, "Have I also here seen Him who sees me?" [14] Therefore the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; observe, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

[15] So Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram named his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.
[16] Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

Important note: The Angel of the Lord that is recorded here is a "Theophany."  The definition of a Theophany is: "a visible manifestation of a deity". {http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/theophany) In the writings of Moses, all the appearances  of a Theophany are, in fact, Jesus Christ / God".  We know this is true because (1) the word Angel is an upper case "A" and (2) this Angel never says, "The Lord sent me" or "the Lord told me to tell  you".  No, this Angle of the Lord commanded Hagar, "Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand." [10] Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, "I will multiply..."  He gave her a command to return and He personally promised Hagar, "I will multiply..."  Only God / (Theophany) Jesus Christ can promise life and increase.
 

Abram's name changed to Abraham,
Abram means "Exalted Father", Abraham means "Father of a Multitude"

+
God's Land Grant to Abraham and his descendents.

[Chapter 17:1] When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. [2] And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." [3] Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: [4] "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. [2] No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. [6] I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. [7] And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.
[8]
Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God."

The Covenant of Circumcision

[9] And God said to Abraham: "As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations. [10] This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised; [11] and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and you. [12] He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not your descendant. [13] He who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money must be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. [14] And the uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant."

Sarai's name changed to Sarah,
Sarai means "bitter", Sarah means "Princess"

[15] Then God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. [16] And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her." [17] Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, "Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old {Abraham is 100 years old)? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child {Sarah is 99 years old)?"

A DIFFICULT PASSAGE:
GOD REJECTS "ISHMAEL" AS HIS COVENANT CHILD OF PROMISE
AND ESTABLISHES "ISAAC" AS HIS COVENANT CHILD OF PROMISE.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU ESTEEM MOSES HIGHLY
AND HE IS THE WRITER;
THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT MOSES
WOULD BE DISHONEST.
 

[18] And Abraham said to God, "Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!" [19] Then God said: "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. [20] And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. [21] But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year." [22] Then He finished talking with him, and God went up from Abraham."

 

Important note: Chapter 17:-22, The the Lord that is recorded here is a "Theophany."  The definition of a Theophany is: "a visible manifestation of a deity". {http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/theophany) In the writings of Moses, all the appearances  of a Theophany are, in fact, Jesus Christ / God".  We know this is true because (1)  Lord is upper case "L" and (2) Almighty God is uppercase "A" and "G". Also note this "Lord" and "Almighty God" did not say, "the Lord sent me" or God said", no, He said, "you shall keep My covenant", "covenant between Me and you", "broken My covenant".  And as for Sarah, "I will bless her" AND SEVERAL MORE PROMISES THAT Only God / (Theophany) Jesus Christ can promise.

[23] So Abraham took Ishmael his son, all who were born in his house and all who were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskins that very same day, as God had said to him. [24] Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. [25] And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. [26] That very same day Abraham was circumcised, and his son Ishmael; [27] and all the men of his house, born in the house or bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him."

ONCE AGAIN,
I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH,
MOSES WAS THE WRITER, THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE
THAT MOSES LIED.
AS MUSLIMS, YOU ESTEEM MOSES HIGHLY.
PLEASE NOTE, THERE IS NO MENTION OF ISHMAEL
OR ANY OF HIS DECEDENTS.

PLEASE RECALL THAT MOSES WROTE THE FOLLOWING:

Genesis 16:11-12, And the Angel of the Lord said to her (Hagar):

"Behold, you are with child,
And you shall bear a son.
You shall call his name Ishmael,
Because the Lord has heard your affliction
.
[12]
He shall be a wild man;
His hand shall be against every man,
And every man's hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren
."

Ishmael is Isaac's half brother.
Isaac is Abraham's Covenant son of  Promise.

It is through the lineage of Isaac that the Saviour, Jesus Christ, was born:


Matthew 1:1-25
"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son,
and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."

[Verse: 23]

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
[2] Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers. [3] Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. [4] Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. [5] Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, [6] and Jesse begot David the king.

David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. [7] Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. [8] Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. [9] Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. [10] Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah. - Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

[12] And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel. [13] Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. [14] Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud.

[15] Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. [16] And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ. [17] So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

[18] Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. [19] Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. [20] But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. [21] And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." [22] So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet,
{Isaiah) saying
: [23] "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." [24] Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, [25] and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus."
 


Unlike the Quran that has only one author, the Bible was written by more than 40 writers over a period of more than 1500 years beginning with Moses and concluding with the Apostle John.  All of these varied writers over those 1500 plus years agree with each other concerning the facts and the prophecies.  They didn't have the advantage of computers or even, in hand,  written records.  They were accurate and they agreed because each one was a God / Holy Spirit inspired writer.

Question: "Who were the writers of the books of the Bible?"

Answer:
Ultimately, above the human writers, the Bible was written by God.  2 Timothy 3:16, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness", tells us that the Bible was “breathed out” by God. God superintended the human authors of the Bible so that, while using their own writing styles and personalities, they still recorded exactly what God intended. The Bible was not dictated by God, but it was perfectly guided and entirely inspired by Him.

Humanly speaking, the Bible was written by more than 40 men of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years. Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paul was a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd, Luke was a physician. Despite being penned by different writers over 15 centuries, the Bible does not contradict itself and does not contain any errors. The authors all present different perspectives, but they all proclaim the same one true God, and the same one way of salvation—Jesus Christ:

John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes
                     to the Father except through Me
."

Acts 4:12, "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under
                    heaven given among men by which we must be saved."

Few of the books of the Bible specifically name their author.  In the following table are the books of the Bible along with the name of who is most assumed by Biblical scholars to be the author, along with the approximate date of authorship:

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Israel and Jerusalem / Zion
”Apple of God’s Eye”

THE ”Apple of God’s Eye” HAS GOD'S WATCH CARE

Deuteronomy 32:8-12

"When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. [9] For the Lord's portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.  [10] "He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him,  He kept him as the apple of His eye.  [11] As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, [12] So the Lord alone led him, and there was no foreign god with him." 

Have you ever asked,
“Why was Israel so overwhelming victorious in that 7-DAY WAR?!”

Israel and Jerusalem / Zion
IS THE
”Apple of God’s Eye”

The following verses will explain that event and all future events concerning Israel and her enemies: 

Zechariah 2:1-9

"Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. [2] So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length." [3] And there was the angel who talked with me, going out; and another angel was coming out to meet him, [4] who said to him, "Run, speak to this young man, saying: 'Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. [5] For I,' says the Lord, 'will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.' "

[6] "Up, up! Flee from the land of the north," says the Lord; "for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven," says the Lord. [7] Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon."

[8] For thus says the Lord of hosts: "He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. [9] For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me.
 

The Truth from the Word of God:

Jesus Christ is The Mighty God and The Everlasting Father, Isaiah 9:6

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Jesus Christ told Philip and the other disciples that He is "God the Father," John 14:8-9

"Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us. [9] Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, PhilipHe that hath seen Me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?" 

Please consider that the very texts you use concerning the "singleness" of Jehovah God instruct all that there are no other gods, i.e. according to your witness,  Jesus Christ is "a" god.  Therefore, Jesus Christ isn't "a" god but He is "Thee God."

Isaiah 44:6 
Thus says the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God

Isaiah 44:8 
Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any

Isaiah 45:5 
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 

The verses above, Isaiah 44:8 and 45:5, clearly states that there is no other God, in the universe beside the Lord and God of Isaiah's inspired writings. 

{'Elowahh, Tsuwr, Yehovah, 'Elohiym are the Hebrew  words for God and Lord as used in these two verses)

These verses clearly creates a major problem for you that are professing Mormon, Latter Day Saints and Jehovah Witnesses.  At the front doors of people across the nations you readily read from "your" bible  "your" mistranslation of  John 1:1, and I quote your translation, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was "a" God."  Your translators have deceived you by adding the article "a", which is not in the Greek texts, thereby creating in your understanding another god.  

Question:  How can there be two (2) God's when God clearly states that He is the one-and-only God and there are no other Gods (plural)?

In Isaiah 44:8b the Hebrew word for "God" is "Tsuwr".  "yea, there is no God / Tsuwr;  I know not any."  The Hebrew word for God / Tsuwr means a rock or boulder; figuratively a refuge.  In the inspired letters written by the Apostle Paul quotes Isaiah 28:16 and Isaiah 8:14 and declares to you and to me that Jesus Christ "is" that "Rock".

Romans 9:33 
"As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."

1 Corinthians 10:4 
"And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." 

Please understand that the inspired words of Isaiah are correct.  There is only one God
 ('Elowahh / Tsuwr / Yehovah / 'Elohiym)
.
That One-and-Only God is Jesus Christ:

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

John 1:10
"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him."

In the following passage we are instructed that Jesus Christ is both, God the Son and God the Creator God, Colossians 1:13-18

"He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, [14] in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [15] He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. [16] For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. [17] And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. [18] And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence." 

PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING

Moses trusted In Jesus Christ's Old Testament pre-existence, Hebrews 11:24-26

"By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
[25]
Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; [26] Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had faith unto the future  reward."

Moses' faith gives ample warning that all who do not accept by faith the above that they have been deceived, 2 John 7-11 and Jude verse:4

2 John 1:7-11, "For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. [8] Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. [9] Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. [10] If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; [11] for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds."

Jude 1:4, "For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."

The key to understanding the "singleness doctrine" of the Triune Godhead which is simply stated as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is believing and trusting by Faith,

Hebrews 11:1-3,
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report. [3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

What you do not understand is the our Christian belief and walking by faith living life style becomes a believing + walking = experiential faith living, lifestyle Christian walk.  All Truly Born Again Christians experience God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit within us, you do not.

The Truly Born Again Christian believes and lives by faith, not by sight:

2 Corinthians 5:7, "For we walk by faith, not by sight"

Let me make one last attempt in explaining your problem when you come to the door of a Truly Born Again Christian  trying to convince us that you have something that we need.

Dear Muslim neighbor, as a Christian we don't simply know about God from a book or a scroll, we personally experience Him because He lives within us.

Dear L.D.S, Mormon and Jehovah Witness neighbor, we don't simply know about Jehovah God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from a book, scroll or a Bible, He lives within us and we personally experience Him; He talks to us and we talk to Him.  Our Christian walk of faith began by simply trusting in His word, the Holy Bible, and accepting by faith and faith alone that He lived, He died on the cross of Calvary for our  / my sins; He was buried; on the third day He arose from the grave; He then walked on this earth intermingling and talking with innumerable numbers of people (historical fact) and He was physically received up into Heaven where He is awaiting the day of His return to bring me into Heaven with Him for all Eternity.

By simple faith we believed the above and we experienced God the Holy Spirit within us giving us power over sins that we never had before.

Because we experienced a new power from within, we trusted the Word of God for some other aspect in our lives and experienced another victory or blessing that could only have come from the Hand of Jehovah, God.

I can go on and on, I won't.  The reality is that we have gone from a simple faith in Jehovah God the Son, Jesus Christ for salvation; experienced the new power of Jehovah God the Holy Spirit within over sins which means that we then had simple faith + experienced victory = faith and experience.  Because that's a continuing progression of faith + experience reality in the life of every Truly Born Again Christian, what could you possibly offer of any Eternal value to any True Christian?  

Reality: You must be "Truly Born Again," there is no other option!

John 3:3
"'Jesus answered and said unto him,
'
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God."'

John 3:6-7
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
[7] Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."
