In The Beginning

 

Today, reply is on the divine fullness described in the Bible as speaking in the persons of GOD the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality public forum who uses the ID “😌” (Level 6 with 10,663 points, a member since June 16, 2013) posted the following:

 

If the Holy spirit has spoken and Jesus has spoken and God has spoken to Jesus during his baptism, Luke3:22 aren’t they 3 individual Gods?😌?

Just curious please, each of them have spoken for themselves, according to the Trinity. So what do you say is happening?

Holy spirit speaking – Acts 13:2

Jesus speaking – John 6:38

God speaking to Jesus and calling him his Son – Luke 3:22.

All 3 spoke before and God spoke of Jesus as his Son from heaven while Jesus was on earth. In verse 21 of Luke 3, the Holy spirit is coming down upon Jesus from heaven while Jesus is on earth, before God speaks and says those words from heaven..Three seperate Gods?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. (1st John 5: 6-8, King James Version, KJV)

“😌”, the sacred knowledge from GOD that is shared with sinners who choose to become developing Christian believers is not the same as the information we create and share with one another as ordinary human beings in material settings. Consciousness in created beings and living creatures continues to function in agreement with multiple aspects of the flesh (e.g., appetite; sensation; emotion/mind); may be dominated by the operations of sin; and primarily rely on such finite tools as imagination, intelligence, logic, carnal reason, philosophy, politics, science, and secular knowledge. In order for someone to apprehend the existence of divine substance that has form only as active presence (we also say, breath; life essence; spirit; word) a profound transformation of human makeup must occur (we say, a person must be “born again”).

Divinity (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) is the origin of all that exists and has life. Divinity may be described as the full collection of inseparable spirit substances that exist throughout the universe. Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Existence and life have been imparted to created beings and living creatures, yet, none may endure as completely independent and separate from GOD. In addition to the character, makeup, and substance of GOD being understood as having completeness, Christians also ascribe to GOD coherence, immortality, integrity, oneness without sameness, personhood, divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and sovereign will.

While GOD does not age or grow old, and divinity is immutable and unchanging, he appears (becomes manifest) and is made visible using created objects that include the living. GOD has completed many divine works by appearing as Jesus Christ and ministering on the earth using human form (we say, the Incarnation; being born, aging, dying, being raised from the dead). Divinity may embody or indwell living beings, however, does not use man-made objects such as graven images and idols.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, those who become “born again” by acknowledging GOD through baptism (i.e., a death and burial of their inborn spirit, with rebirth from divine seed, so to speak) must “grow up again” and become mature/ripe for harvest from the earth by Jesus Christ at his appearing (we say, the Advent; the Second Coming). As the new creation, developing believers will increasingly display the same Spirit that was in Jesus Christ.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
