The respect to unity, one CANNOT separate Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. THEY ARE ONE!
John 8:19 – Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
Allow me to come directly to the point. As the Scripture declares, “There are three that bear record in heaven; the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; these three are one.” Also, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” While there is indeed the Trinity, as clearly indicated by the term “Elohim,” that being the plural form of the word “Eloi,” They are One. While each member of the Trinity has His Own clearly distinct function as a member of the God-head, the Three are in complete agreement One with Another, and in no way is there any schism between or among Them. They ARE One!
What you know to be the character and nature of One of the Trinity is, in fact, the character and nature of Each member of the Trinity. They are One, and so shall They ever be. Our God is One. I find the following three observations so interesting in my study of God’s Word. When Father speaks of the God-head, He in some way always directs our attention to the Son (the Word made flesh) and Holy Spirit. When Jesus speaks of the God-head, He in some way always directs our attention to Father and Holy Spirit. And when Holy Spirit speaks of the God-head, He in some way directs our attention to Father and Son. Each One seems to always point us to the other member of the God-head, each One bearing witness of the other Members. Could it be that the God-head is demonstrating to us a pattern of recognition we should use among ourselves, living in a manner that prefers our brothers above ourselves?
Still, there is great peace to the heart of every believer in knowing the truth of God’s Word. Our God does not change. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And not only is our God (the Trinity) unchanging, They ARE One. Think of that. We have the Jehovah, Creator God of the universe as our Father, Jesus, the Word made flesh, the first begotten Son of God, the living Word Father used to create the universe as our Savior, Lord, Elder Brother, and Joint-heir, and Holy Spirit, the agent of creation Who acted upon the spoken Word of Father to bring into manifestation all of creation as our Comforter, Helper, Teacher, Empowerer, and Guide.
