God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
There is only one God, and He manifests Himself in three distinct and co-equal Persons? How can that be? Both concepts seem mutually exclusive to our feeble human minds, but that is expected when finite human beings attempt to understand an infinite God.
While the word “trinity” is not in the Bible, several references point to the triune nature of our Sovereign God. As given to us by Holy Spirit, the mandate for this episode is to help listeners better understand our God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Rather than employing various illustrations in discussing this subject, each host of The Spoken Verity Podcast (TSV) took turns highlighting this mysterious nature of our sovereign God using Scripture.
Because when it’s all said and done, the real question is, do you believe the Bible?
In this episode…
— The Reverend, Bro. Wiley, expounded on God as Father [09:52]
- God is love, as expressed in 1 John 4:8, so understanding God as Father comes through relationship and comprehending His expression of love in the Person of God the Son, our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
— Bro. Arthur led conversations about God as Son [29:51]
- John 1:1-3 distinctly states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” Period!
— Bro. Reme, the primary host for this episode, focused on God as Holy Spirit [56:06]
- God’s indwelling Spirit within those of us who are believers in Jesus Christ is not a thing or some mystical energy controlled by God. He is God Himself in the Person of the Holy Spirit, as evident in Genesis 1:2, 25 and Acts 5:3-4.
