THE HOLY TRINITY:
Christians do not believe in three Gods. We believe in One God who reveals Himself in three distinct and eternal persons. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. So, the Father is the one true God, the Son is the one true God, and the Holy Spirit is the one true God. One God – the Triune Godhead – three in One. This is not something we can comprehend with our finite minds, however, God is omnipresent, omnipotent, holy and righteous so, of course, there are many many things of His nature and creation we can not comprehend. That does not mean it is not true. Our lack of understanding, our lack of knowledge, our lack of Godly wisdom and our lack of belief cannot and will not change God’s truths. It is good to always keep in mind that we are the created, not the Creator.
I pray you do your own study on the One True God and open your heart and ask our Lord God to show you His truths regarding the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
THE PROMISE OF WISDOM:
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, without doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 5:1-8)
ADDITIONAL BIBLE VERSES FOR OUR STUDY:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God
was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:2)
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” (Genesis 1:26) O.T.
Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
These scriptures are not referring to multiple gods, but rather expressing the One Triune God. For the Bible is very clear that God is One. The Word of God in the Old Testament, speaks of God in terms of :”Our image, according to Our likeness.” But still One God. In the New Testament this becomes clear as we are shown the Trinity – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
GOD SAID TO MOSES, “I AM.”
And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” (Exodus 3:14)
JESUS SAID TO THEM, “I AM.”
Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you,before Abraham was, I AM.” ( John 8:57-58)
(They knew exactly what Jesus was saying. He was stating that He was God. The great “I AM”)
THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and 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 1:1-5)
For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. (John 5:7)
ALL THREE PERSONS OF THE ONE TRIUNE GOD:
When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17)
But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” (Acts 5:3-4)
By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. (1 John 4:13-15)
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
Praise God for His mercy and grace through Jesus Christ our Lord, and may we never grieve the Holy Spirit,
