Summary: God is three persons in one: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. These three persons are one in God.
Topic: The tri-unity of God
In the Holy Bible, we are taught in the scriptures that there is only one God.
Deuteronomy 4:35 says, “Unto thee it was shewed that thou mightest know that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him.”
Deuteronomy 6:4 says, “ Hear O’ Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.”
2nd Samuel 7:22 says, “Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God, for there is none like thee, neither is any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our hears.”
I Chronicles 17:20 says, “O Lord, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that w have heard with our hears.”
Psalms 86:10 says, “For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.”
Isaiah 46:10-11 says, “Ye are my witness, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me and understand that I am he; before me there was no God formed; neither shall there be after me, I even I am the Lord; and beside me there is no savior.”
Isaiah 44:6 says, “Thus saith the Lord the Kin of Israel and his redeemer the Lord of HOST; I am the first and I am the last, and beside me there is no God.”
Isaiah 45:18 says, “For thus saith the Lord that createth the heavens; God himself that fromed the earth and made it; he hath established it; he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabitant: I am the Lord, there is none else.”
Ephesians 4:5 says “ One Lord, one faith, one baptism.”
I Timothy 2:5 says, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.”
Yes, the bible teaches us there is only one God. But yet the bible also teaches us the tri-unity of God, which teaches that God is revealed to us in three distinct persons, which is the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. These three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are co-equal, co-existent, and co-eternal in one God. They all have same attributes and power as God, that is God is omnipotent, omniscience, and omnipresent, and since that is the case, then the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is omnipotent, omniscience, and omnipresent because those three distinct persons are one in God.
I John 5:7 says, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word(the Son), and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Now, it must be understood that there are not three Gods, but there are three distinct persons in one God. It also must be understood that God is not some actor who appears on stage as one person, and comes back as another person. That is God is not a God who comes to you as the Father one day, and then on tomorrow he is the Son ,and the next day he is the Holy Spirit. Whenever God shows up, he always shows up as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in one God. There was never a time when the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit never worked together as God. In Genesis 1:26, it says that God says, “Let us make man”. Now the question is who is “us” in Genesis 1:26? It was the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
In Genesis 11:7, it says that God says, “ Go to, let us go down and there confound their language…… Now the question again is, who is “us” in Genesis 11:7? It was the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
It must be understood that the Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Father, nor is the Son the Holy Spirit or vice versa because in God there are three distinct persons, three separate individuals in one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal, co-eternal, and co-existent in power and attributes in one God. The Father is one person, the Son(Jesus Christ) is one person, and the Holy Spirit is one person. These three distinct persons are one in harmony and in unity in one God.
You see, in God, you have the Father and the Father is God.
I Corinthians 8:6 says, “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him, and one Lord Jesus Christ; by whom are all things, and we by Him.
