    David ya gotta realize that th great promise was multiplication of christ seed thus christ has to be multiplied as the stars of heaven when the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed which is the word. th child is the h.g. thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the children of the kingdom which is the h.g.thats y he y he refers to the h.g. as the promise child

    David isaiah uses the davidic kingdom as symbolic language for the heavenly kingdom in 11 v 1 and they were father son and granson in 1 kingdom just as solomon came out of davids loins so the comforter th h.g.will come out of christ loins meaning his seed his words,his breath was his word his seed etc thus christ is the father of the h.g. just like david was the father of solomon meaning comforter

    David you do greatly err. god is refering to within his kingdom there is no god but him but in the kingdom there 3 that answer to the godhead father son and granson.exactly like the davidic kingdom that was composed of jesse david and solomon father son and granson 3 distinct beings but 1 kingdom. but unto the son he said thy throne o god is forever.isaiah uses davidic kingdom as symbolic for god.
  • David
    In Isiah chp 43 God says I am God there is no other God beside Me there was no God before Me there will be no God after me I encourage people to search for verses that speak of a trinity of gods or look in 1st John chp 5 for the Godhead the Father the Word and the Holy Ghost and the witnesses on earth the Spirit the Water and the Blood if you search earnestly you will find truth
  • Obbie Beal
    27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. NOTE: Some things money, friends, educations, kinfolks, ..., ..., can not give us. 2019, with thanks-giving and praise we thank GOD for Jesus, Salvation, and HIS peace plus not to be afraid or heart be troubled, as we fight each daily-battle.

    In John 14 we see the whole Deity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. or Spirit of Truth.
