The Holy TrinityJanuary 22, 2024
Different religious groups have different ways of understanding and explaining the Holy Trinity. Each religious group offered an uncertain explanation for the Trinity. Others even deny the Trinity. However, by studying the Bible prophecies we come to meet the true explanation of the Trinity. The Bible proves that the Trinity-Holy Three: God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one and the same God.
Unless a person makes efforts to discover and understand the true meaning of the Trinity with confidence, the soul will be in a dangerous situation, it will be far from being saved. God already issued a stern warning concerning those people who don’t know Him.
2 Thessalonians 1:8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
The Bible’s specific teachings need to be obtained to be able to unravel the hidden nature of the Trinity. Therefore, people must carefully accept and follow God’s instructions.
God the Father and God the Son: One and the same
1. God the Father will be born as a man (son) on this earth, according to a prophecy in the Bible.
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Luke 3:1 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Matthew 1:18-23 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.
The above verses are the prophecies (Old Testament) and their fulfillments (New Testament). God the Father was born on this earth as God the Son (Jesus). The name Immanuel means “God with us” and the name Jesus means “The one who saves His people from their sins” (God). Comparing these two verses, it can be easily understood that God the Father was born as a man (Jesus) and so it is natural for him to be called the Son of God because He was born as a child in this world.
2. God the Father is the creator: God the Son (Jesus) is the creator
Isaiah 44:24 This is what the Lord says—… I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself.
Colossians 1:16-18 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. … And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,…
God the Father is the creator, according to the book of Isaiah, and God the Son (Jesus), according to the book of Colossians. There should be two worlds if they are two separate Gods, right? The first world was made by God the Father, and the second world by God the Son. However, there is just one world. The fact that God the Father and God the Son (Jesus) are one and the same God is clearly shown by this.
3. God the Son (Jesus) declared that He is God the Father
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
John 14:8-9 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
The clear prophecies in the Bible demonstrate that God the Father and God the Son are one and the same God when considered in the context of the aforementioned scriptures.
God the Father and the Holy Spirit: One and the same
The spirit of a person is able to discern their thoughts. In a similar manner, God is capable of knowing His own thoughts. Surprisingly, the Bible emphasizes a point of stating that the Holy Spirit is aware of God’s thoughts.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way, no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:1o …The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
Since the Holy Spirit knows the thoughts of God, it can be easily understood that God the Father and the Holy Spirit are one and the same God.
God the Son and the Holy Spirit: One and the same
The Bible testifies about who the advocate is, using the Greek word ‘paráklētos’ (παρακλητος), which means ‘helper or counselor.’ According to the Scriptures, the advocate is identified as the Holy Spirit.
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said …
In the same way, the Bible testifies once again about who the advocate is, using the Greek word ‘paráklētos’ (παρακλητος). According to the Scriptures, the advocate is identified as God the Son (Jesus).
1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
There is no contradiction, and more explanation is not required. The two verses are sufficient to demonstrate the oneness of God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible teaches that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one and the same God (Trinity). Churches that reject the Trinity and do not understand its fundamental truth are categorically heretical and have incomplete knowledge of God.
