    Why did God not make Jesus Christ's existence explict to us in the beginning? A lot of people are finding it difficult to belive that Jesus christ was In existence.

    In the book of Genesis, who was God conversing with while he was planning to create man? He said 'let us make man in our own image"
  • The Godhead Scriptures - in Reply
    The Scriptures about the Godhead. Sometimes called "Let Us..." in some passages. These scriptures are evidence of all 3 persons of the Godhead speaking to each other.

    Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

    Isaiah 6:8

    Romans 1:20

    Colossians 2:9

    Acts 17:27-30

    1 John 5:7

    John 10:30

    "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD so that they are without excuse:"

    Genesis 1:1

    The Father purposes

    The Word (Jesus) speaks. ( John 1:1)

    The Spirit (Holy Spirit) executes the spoken word. Action.

    All working together. Jesus came to show us the Father, as Emmanuel.

    Matthew 1:23

    Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God WITH US. [Jesus]

    {Comment} Jesus came to bring to each born again believer; the baptism and the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit.

    [ Genesis 1:2, John 3:6, Acts 2:1-3, John 16: 7-15]

    Upon being born again, Jesus gives the Holy Spirit to teach us scripture, comfort us, convict us of sin, enable us to be witnesses. Stay in the New Testament at first.

    Dear Triumph, It would be easy for God to appear to all people and make them believe. But they would have been compelled to do so, since they wouldn't have another option. God doesn't want to force people to accept/live with/live by Him. He wants people to choose Him in their own free will. Just think, would you like your husband/wife to get married to you and live with you because he/she was forced to do so because couldn't do otherwise? Or because he/she loves you and want to do so?

    Luke 2:33-35

    'And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

    And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

    (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) THAT THE THOUGHTS OF MANY HEARTS MAY BE REVEALED."

    But don't worry. At the end the true sheep will follow the true Shepherd.

    In Genesis in the begining it was Father God who was talking to the other two persons of the Trinity/Godhead, that is the Son and the Holly Spirit.
