3 that bear record

 

Today, reply is on knowing the mystery and sacred secrets of GODhead. GOD—who is spirit—does not exist using the same relationships described for created beings and living creatures; even so, for the comfort and encouragement of life, GOD is to be known and spoken of as continuing in the same relationships that are meaningful among mankind. Mature Christian believers accept that the sacred knowledge they receive regarding the spirit process, substance, and workings of GOD will not provide the same detail and features as secular knowledge that center on things finite, material, and measurable. A profound consciousness of spirit presence first must be in place before the created may apprehend the truths of divine existence and sacred personhood, or the nature of commitment, communication, exchange, and interaction among the divine. The great gulf between immutable, incorruptible, invisible GOD and those who have been emanated and put forth requires all they receive be understood as merely approximations, estimates, hints, and suggestions that must not be held as full, or complete.

Is God his own son and father?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. (John 3: 11-13, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, among Christian believers, apart from the teachings and works of the church and the holy writings, there is nothing that exists within the material and natural world that explains the existence of GODhead (we also say, divine fullness; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit), and all the relationships they use as otherwise unseen active presence. The information provided from GOD to his created beings and living creatures (we say, the revelation) that speak to his origin, power, presence, sovereignty, and workings throughout the universe must be accepted as spirit substance that, of itself, is accurate, truthful, and sufficient. In addition to the form and life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; word) imparted to the living as their own makeup and substance are inseparable aspects from the makeup of divinity whereby those created are to apprehend and be apprehended of GOD. Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible—a human record of divinity appearing through thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years:

(1.) Deuteronomy 29: 29, King James Version (KJV): 29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

(2.) Hebrews 11: 6, KJV: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

(3.) Colossians 1: 12-22, KJV: 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) Philippians 3: 7-14, KJV: 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
