THE HOLY TRINITY
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD is called by three names, viz., GOD the FATHER; GOD the SON; and GOD the Holy Spirit. GOD the FATHER came into this world as Saviour with the name JESUS CHRIST to save sinners of the world.
“...Thou art the CHRIST, the SON of the living GOD.”
St. Matthew 16:16
Thus, GOD the FATHER came into this world as the SON. HE HIMSELF is the GOD the SON. HE suffered terribly for sinners and died on the cross and was buried. JESUS CHRIST resurrected HIMSELF on the third day and appeared alive to many for forty days. On the 40th day after HIS resurrection, JESUS CHRIST went up to heaven before the eyes of HIS disciples.
After our LORD JESUS CHRIST had gone up to heaven, HE sent the Holy Spirit, the holy power or the holy strength to live a holy life, into the world on the day of Pentecost, the 50th day of HIS resurrection, as HE had promised HIS disciples. Thus, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF came into this world as the Holy Spirit. HE HIMSELF is the GOD, the Holy Spirit. Thus the FATHER, the SON, and the Holy Spirit are together and ONE. So the LORD JESUS CHRIST is called the 'GOD of the Holy Trinity'. Therefore, it is a great truth that the GOD who is called by the names the FATHER, the SON and the Holy Spirit is ONE GOD only.
It is said in the Holy Bible,
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and HIS name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty GOD, The everlasting FATHER, The Prince of Peace.”
From the above verse, anyone can understand that the mighty and wonderful GOD, the SON is the everlasting FATHER; and the GOD, the everlasting FATHER is the SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who came into this world as a child to save and redeem sinners from their sins.
When our LORD JESUS CHRIST was in the world, HE said with HIS most holy mouth,
“...He that hath seen ME hath seen the FATHER; ...”
St. John 14:9
“I and MY FATHER are one.”
St. John 10:30
It is also said in the Holy Bible,
“But to us there is but one GOD, the FATHER, of whom are all things, and we in HIM; and one LORD JESUS CHRIST, by whom are all things, and we by HIM.”
I Corinthians 8:6
“Now the LORD is that (the) Spirit: and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty.”
II Corinthians 3:17
Moreover GOD, the FATHER, the ONLY TRUE GOD is the Holy Spirit. HE is without form and is invisible. GOD, the SON or the LORD JESUS CHRIST took the human form; GOD, the SON or the LORD JESUS CHRIST was visible. GOD, the Holy Spirit has no form and is invisible. The ONLY TRUE GOD, the FATHER who is the Holy Spirit HIMSELF is GOD, the SON who is with form; and GOD, the Holy Spirit who is without form. GOD the FATHER, the ONLY TRUE GOD works as Saviour to save sinners from their sins, with the name GOD, the SON and Saviour; and with the name the Holy Spirit, HE works to strengthen people to live a holy life. The two immensely glorious works of GOD, the FATHER are the work of salvation and the work of strengthening to live a holy life. These two functions are performed by the ONLY TRUE GOD, GOD the FATHER HIMSELF. Therefore, there is no reason to have any doubt over the fact that GOD is the ONE and the ONLY ONE who involves HIMSELF in various activities.
We know that the one and only sun gives warmth and light. Like the one and the same sun that gives warmth and light, the ONE AND ONLY GOD, the FATHER performs the work of salvation and the work of strengthening people to live a holy life. The work of salvation is being done in the most holy name of JESUS CHRIST and the work of strengthening is being done in the most holy name of the Holy Spirit. The ONE GOD and the ONLY GOD and the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, GOD the FATHER HIMSELF is doing these two activities.
Therefore, there is no reason for anyone to have a doubt over the fact that GOD is ONLY ONE and salvation and strengthening people to live a holy life are HIS two glorious works. Salvation means saving of people's souls from sins and their consequences.
The Christian GOD is the Holy Trinity GOD-the unity of GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the Holy Spirit as ONE GOD. The Christian GOD is the Holy Triune GOD-three functional Persons, GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the Holy Spirit in one GODHEAD (I John 5:7). Mathematically saying, one into one into one = one (1 x 1 x 1 = 1). There is no change in the ONE GOD and the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, the LORD JESUS CHRIST. In LORD JESUS CHRIST resides GOD the FATHER and GOD the holy Spirit.
The facts given above are divine secrets. None but the true servants of GOD can understand them. Anyone who reads the Holy Bible literally cannot understand the divine secrets. Though the holy scripture of the LORD has been written literally, it contains spiritual meanings and divine meanings. Only the true spiritual men can understand its exact meaning. Praise The LORD! Alleluia! "
