CHRISTIAN INVESTIGATOR'S ACCOUNT
By Paul Dugas
"Hear, O' Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord" (Deut.6:4).
The Bible emphatically declares, not once or twice, but over fifty times that
there is but ONE GOD AND and HIS NAME IS ONE.
The Bible revelation of God is not that of a person, for God is in His essence
an invisible Spirit. "God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him
in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24). In the plan of redemption, the invisible God
took upon Himself human flesh and became visible in the body of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3, I Tim. 1:17).
He came into the world to redeem fallen man; gave His life a ransom on the cross
of calvary; arose from the dead the third day and ascended up into Heaven. After
this He returned back in the power of the Holy Ghost to regenerate the lives of all
who would surrender to Him. The Holy Ghost was not the third person of a divine
trinity but according to the scripture, "Christ in you the hope of glory." (Col.1:27)
There were not three Gods, nor three persons in the plan of Redemption, but
ONE GOD filling the offices of creation, redemption, and regeneration.
Some can not comprehend the fact that Jesus Christ was both the Father and the Son.
They reason: if Jesus was both God and man, how could He be on earth and yet speak
from Heaven? The answer is plain. God is a Spirit whose presence fills the universe
no human body could possibly contain all His presence. The scriptures tell us all of God
that could be contained in human flesh dwelt in Jesus Christ (Col.2:9). The Lord Jesus Christ
was the bodily manifestation of almighty God, "For in Him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fullness
of the Godhead bodily." (Col.2:9)
Jesus is the Father - John 14:9
Jesus in the Son - Matthew 1:21
Jesus in the Holy Ghost - John 14:18
And these three are one - I John 5:7
