The True God

The True God

The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is each a distinct person and not simply an aspect or manifestation of God. We noticed all three present at the baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 3:13-17).

Anyone, including Unitarians, Jews and Muslims, who do not recognize the tri-personality of God is not believing in the true God who reveals Himself in Scripture.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are spirit beings (John 4:24) and only Christ at the time of His incarnation (Luke 1:35); John 1:14) took on a human body and nature which He still has.

When the Bible speaks of God’s ear (Isaiah 59:1), eyes (II Chronicles 16:9), arms (Deuteronomy 33:27), His hand (Isaiah 59:1), feet (Isaiah 66:1), face (Genesis 19:13) or mouth (Isaiah 1:20), these are all anthropomorphisms in which God’s attributes are explained to us by comparing them with human bodily parts.

God is self-existent (John 5:26), infinite (limitless) (Acts 17:28) and immutable (unchangeable) (Malachi 3:6); Hebrews 13:8).

He is omnipotent (all-powerful) (Luke 1:37), omnipresent (all of God is everywhere all the time) (Jeremiah 23:24) and omniscient (knows everything) (Psalm 139:1-4). He is perfectly holy (Isaiah 6:3)absolutely just (Genesis 18:25), always good (Psalm 145:9) and merciful (Psalm 145:9). He is loving (I John 4:8) which is proven by the gift of His Son for the salvation of sinners (John 3:16). He is a God of truth (I Samuel 15:29; John 14:6).

One of the most important facts that He reveals about Himself is that He is sovereign, which means simply, He is God (Psalm 115:3). He has created the universe and everything in it (Psalm 24:1) and sustains it (Colossians 1:17). Since He is sovereign, He does not consult with any cabinet or congress and takes no polls. Being the absolute ruler, He allows humankind limited freedom, but will bring all things to the conclusion that He has determined.

There will always be friction between the individual who wants to run his own life and God who is the rightful controller.

Most of our mental, emotional and spiritual problems result from having a warped, twisted or inadequate concept of who God is. Once you grasp from Scripture who He is, then worries vanish, health improves, the future brightens and an unbelievable peace is your personal experience.
