The Trinity In The Old Testament

"Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, and His Spirit, hath sent me" (Isaiah 48:16).

It is significant that Biblical Christianity is the only Trinitarian religion-and therefore the only true religion-in the world. Most religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, etc.) are pantheistic and humanistic, denying the existence of an omnipotent God who created the space/time cosmos. There are two other major religions, however, that are monotheistic, believing in the God of creation and in the creation record in Genesis-Judaism and Islam.

However, these two fail to understand that the Creator must also be the Redeemer, and therefore they also become humanistic, believing that man must achieve salvation by his own efforts. Further, they also fail to acknowledge that God's objective work of redemption must be made subjective in each person by the indwelling personal presence of the omnipresent Creator/Redeemer.

All this is beautifully revealed in the New Testament in the doctrine of the tri-une God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- one God in three Persons, incomprehensible to human understanding, perhaps, yet very real (see John 15:26; etc.).

This wonderful revelation of the Godhead was foreshadowed in the very beginning-the Father creating; the Spirit moving; the Son speaking (Genesis 1:1-3). In our text above, again it is the Son (as the living Word of God) prophesying about His coming mission of redemption, saying that "the Lord God, and His Spirit, hath sent me."

Then, when He had finished His work and could return to the Father, He promised the coming of "the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name," and that He would "abide with you for ever" (John 14:26,16). HMM

Excellent question.

Please see whatever you need to know with so many other questions on this site.

Including why Jesus had to die if he was God.

did he really die and ressurect

with quotations from the Bible but in an nutshell let me say this.

Our God is one God and has always been but because he is God,he can do anything and choses to manifest himself in 3 ways.

That is why at creation he says "let us make man in our own image"

Man sinned through Adam and God loved man so much and sought to reconcile himself to man so he came down to earth in the form of 100% man while still retaining his Godly attributes to die for our sins so he could relate to man and the temptations that man faces.

The Bible records that he was tempted yet without sin.

His unusual birth i.e born of a virgin ( a fit never seen before and after it) proves that he was indeed special.

Jesus received worship.

Only God is worthy of worship so he is one with God, indivisible

He claimed no one can get to father except through him,only one who is one with God can make that claim

The Bible says all things were created by Him

that is only possible if he is God.

God the father,God the son ,God the holy Spirit are the 3 ways God chose to reveal himself to his people.

Still the same God.

The relationship between Father and son and the obedience the Bible talks about the son to the father is to teach us orderliness.

God is a God of orderliness.

Jesus in the flesh as man felt hunger,felt sad and felt all emotions man feel

But the Bible makes it clear that he was without sin

No human is without sin

So he cannot just be a prophet.

All prophets were with sin and repented of their sins at various times except him because he didn't need to

He also had the power to forgive sins

Only God can forgive sins

The Bible in revelation calls him the alpha and the Omega i.e the beginning and the end[/b]Only God has that title so he is God.

The Word Became Flesh

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.

3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understooda it.

6There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.b

10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of natural descent,c nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,d who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

15John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’” 16From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,e,f who is at the Father’s side, has made him known

John 3:16 'for God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son' Is jesus not God and son of God concurrently, why will jesus send himself, absurd ! For jesus so love the world that he gave his only begotten jesus to the world' lol funny. Not to talk of refuting Begotten son where many prophets God called them begotten sons.

@petres

I am not sure i get you here, even though i agree with you that Jesus is a deity and he is a God, i differ on the point of him being the God almighty. He revealed to us he is the son of God, the apostles also described him as the son likewise several other biblical pointers. The concept of trinity{three in one God} does not have sound biblical basis and was only introduced by the catholic into christianity in the 6th century AD. Scriptures were actually twisted to try and justify the trinity concept. I think it was brought about by over zealousness of some believers then which as been transmuted to nelievers to this day.

@petres 007: could the people be wrong in their claims of his lordship? is there a way to actually proof this with a single verse of the ible going against it? is there a possibility that God is killed? is there a possibility that God is wounded? is there a possibility God bleeds? is therea possibility that God cried? is there a possibility that God weeps? is there a possibility that God begged? is there a possibility God prayed? is there a possibility that God petitioned? is there a possibility God was strung up to die? is there a possibility that God lamented? is there a possibility that was hungry? is there a possibility that God was under the contol of devil?

Jesus Christ is "Emmanuel" Meaning "God with us" Is. 7:14, Matt. 1:23

So it is not an error if we call Jesus Christ God.

He said "I and my father is one" - John 10:30

Also, John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". Now you will understand perfectly the mystery of Christ as God Himself.

Jesus is God no controversy about that.

@ alimat 2

That would depend on what you understand the term God[/b]to be. Its a title that befits both God and His Son. They are both deities.

The word God has been wrongly used to mean one person, because of the expression "one God" or "the Lord thy God is One"

Allow me to explain something. The word God is a collective noun, that exists in the plural form in Hebrew. A similar example would be the word "class" Its one class with several members. When you refer to the class you're referring to all its members.

[b]Elohim is the original word for the translated word "God" , which is plural. When Moses originally used the word "One" he was addressing the unity, or oneness, or intimacy of the members of the Godhead. Although God is comprised of different members, Father and Son, each having their own identity, and will, they function in perfect unity, each representing the virtues or qualities that befit the title. They are co-equal and co-eternal.

The Son however took on the role of humility and became a man so that He could save the fallen race. His life and ministry on earth were in perfect obedience to His Father's will and instructions, and some, like the Jehovah's Witnesses have mistakenly taught that Jesus was created by the Father. Nothing is more further from the truth however. They are confusing the role of Jesus with who He is, and what He did while on earth.

For those who should enter God's glorious and physical kingdom, it will be evidently clear that the Father and the Son are two distinct beings.

As to the question posed by the poster the answer is yes. Its the same God.

After Adam sinned, God Almighty ceased dealing with man directly. All that happened before Christ were man's encounter with angels. These angels are given different names from God, to Jehova to Lord, to el-shadai and during Mohammed days he encountered the angel called Allah.

Irrespective of your religion bear it in mind that there is only one God.THE CREATOR

You only call him different names due to your religion, tribe, location, etc.

I too will certainly be if He's any other than the God (i.e. Allah), the Eternal, the Exalted, the Creator, the Nourisher, the All Wise, the All Knower.

Waiting for explanation, please. Thanks
