Discussion for Genesis 1

    Rick:V:26 let us make man in our image---. 1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father the Word and the Holy Ghost:--. I never heard of three gods? Is 1John 5:7 saying there's a Trinity in heaven keeping record and they are the Father the Word and the Holy Ghost?
  • A disciple
    Rick You are right! Trinity is not written as such in the Scriptures. The greatness of God is too high for any man to count; but He does give us some things to know and understand Him, in the capacity we ARE able. For example; in John 13-16, Jesus in many places speaks of the Spirit as a divine person, "whom the Father will send in my name:"and at Jesus' baptism, three separate persons are there.
  • Hector D.
    The bible DOES refer to God as "God the Father," the bible does NOT refer to Jesus as "God the Son," nor does the bible refer the HolyGhost as "God the HolyGhost." Jesus is referred to as the son of God, son of Man, Wonderful,Counselor, THE Mighty God, THE everlasting Father,Prince of Peace, Redeamer, Savior, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, the Word, God manifested in flesh, the Way, I Am, I AM HE!!!
  • Rick
    Show me the word trinity in the word of God? Where is it written there are three Gods in one? There are three different manifestations of God, God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit, but all three are the same one God. They are just in different forms. Jesus was God robed in flesh, but was God, The Holy Spirit was non other than the spirit of God and God is God and there is non other!
  • A disciple
    Bishop Royalty Jones, thank you for your post. I would like to add, that God, who knows the thoughts and intents of everyone's heart, knows that it is a conscious moral choice in people who "act like" they don't know why all the evil is coming on the world. For example; in Rev. 16:10-11, they "...blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds."
  • Bishop Royalty Jones
    I just want for everyone to know that this is a very critical time in the world for everyone. We have been in the world of Spirits Good - Angels and Bad - Demons since the beginning of time. People that are not in understanding with the Word of God and what it is explaining will not get the full understanding of what God's word is saying. Ask for the presence of the HOLY SPIRIT to come.
