Many people believe that God is actually three persons: the father, the son, and the Holy Ghost. It is a common belief. Unfortunately, it is not rooted in scripture. In fact, scripture says just the opposite.
The Bible very clearly says and shows that Jesus is God.
One of the first things that people will say when presented with this Biblical truth is to present Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Notice that the says the NAME – singular, one name.
Jesus is the name. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are offices or modes of operation.
I am a mother, a daughter and a writer – but my name is still Stephanie in each of those offices. There is only ONE of me (and I am sure people everywhere are grateful of that!), I am not three persons or three separate entities.
It is also worthwhile to note here that God is not a name. Some say God the father, God the son, God the Holy Ghost, but God is an office. That is like saying President the father, President the son, President the Holy Ghost. It doesn’t make sense. It has to be the name and there is only ONE name – Jesus.
Genesis 1:26 is another popular verse that is often used to “prove” that there are three, but I explain that in “Let ‘Us’ make man in ‘Our’ image” – What?.
I have more than 55 verses that show Jesus is God.
This is all according to SCRIPTURE. If you doubt or don’t understand, you need to get into the Word and STUDY. You also need to pray for a revelation of truth. Only God can reveal this to you. All I can do is open the door and lay out the scripture for you to study.
There are not three gods. There is only ONE God.
Let’s start with John 1:1-14 which clearly says that the Word was God and the Word became FLESH and walked among us. That is Jesus. God came to this world as Jesus to save us.
Jesus is God manifest in flesh.
Another verse that is very clear is John 10:30 JESUS said, “I and my father are ONE.” And Jesus is not a liar. Even those crucifying Him realized that He was God in flesh.
Now let’s look at how it isn’t possible for there to be three instead of one.
If Jesus was the ‘son of God’ in the way that WE are sons and daughters, then the fact that the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary and she conceived should make Him the Holy Spirit’s son. The logic doesn’t add up. There can’t be three.
In Acts 10 we read the story of Cornelius. That is a good one to read because is also serves as an example of what we need to do to be saved (baptism in Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in tongues and water baptism in Jesus name). But that is not why I am directing you to this scripture now.
Read down to verse 25. When Peter came to Cornelius’ house he fell down and worshiped Peter. However, in verse 26, Peter told him to stand because he was also just a man.
This was the right thing for Peter to do because in Exodus 20:3 GOD said that we are to have no other gods before Him. We are not to worship any other than God.
However, when Jesus walked the earth, people fell at His feet and worshiped Him all the time – and He never corrected them.
But we are only supposed to worship GOD, right?
So why did Jesus allow it? Was He in sin? No, He is God.
Now let’s look at some pretty powerful scripture.
Matthew 1:23 says that Jesus’ name, Immanuel, means “God with us.”
Isaiah 44:24 says that God alone created the world.
However, John 1:3 and Colossians 1:16 say that JESUS created EVERYTHING.
Hmmm…if they are two separate entities or “gods” then something isn’t lining up.
Isaiah 43:10-11 GOD said that before Him there was no god formed, nor after. He also said that besides HIM there is NO SAVIOR.
Who is our savior?
Revelation 1:17-18 and Revelation 2:8 say that Jesus is the first and the last.
Isaiah 44:6 says that GOD is our redeemer.
2 Peter 1:1 says that JESUS is our redeemer. Did something change when I wasn’t looking?
Oh, and in 2 Peter 1:1 it also refers to “our GOD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.”
In John 20:28 Thomas called Jesus “My Lord and My GOD.”
Was Thomas addled or confused? I don’t think so, otherwise Jesus would have corrected him or they would have left that part out of the Bible altogether.
Acts 20:28 says that GOD purchased us with His own blood. How is that possible? First, God is a spirit and spirits don’t have blood. BUT if that spirit comes to walk among us manifest in flesh (Jesus – go back to John 1:14) then it is quite easy for Him to shed blood for us.
And it was Jesus who shed His blood for us – but it was God.
Revelation 1:5-6 and Revelation 5:9-8 say that Jesus’ blood purchased us.
There are more but this is enough for now. I will gladly share more with anyone who truly wants to know and understand. In other words, if you are truly hungry and don’t just want to fight I will be more than happy to share all the information that I have on this Biblical truth.
