    Alex: There are Three in HeavenThe Father,The Word, The Holy Ghost(1john 5:7)
    The Word was Made Flesh and Dwelt Among Us(John1:14)The Son of God. He is The Living Word(Hebrews4:12 Quick Means Living) Like you Said,The Wheat are The Saved.You have everything Kind of Right Just a Little Mixed Up. Hard to Understand. It's Just a Story, Picture of Salvation and End of World. Holy Ghost is Not H.G
