"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"
(Matthew 28:19 KJV)
The concept of the Trinity is one of the hardest for mankind to accept and to understand. And if we don't understand something perfectly, how do we explain it to someone else? But Our Awesome God expects us to tell others so we need to learn about the Trinity.
If we are Christian, we believe in Our Awesome God whom we have never seen, but we certainly don't understand Him all the time. Though we will never have His knowledge we can, through faith and study, learn what our Holy Bible teaches about the Trinity.
The concept of the Trinity, as taught in the Bible, is that the Father is God, that the son, Jesus Christ, is God and that the Holy Spirit is God. And yet, Our Awesome God is only one God. Each exists at the same time, (coexists), each is co-powerful and each is coeternal with the other two. In John 14:24, Jesus Christ told us that God had sent Him and in John 14:26 and then in John 16:7, He tells us that the Holy Spirit (Comforter) would be sent by His Father and then by Himself. So there must be three separate centers of consciousness in Our Awesome God.
We need to be aware that the Biblical term is, "Godhead," and it is found in three different Books of the Holy Bible: Romans 1:20; Acts 17:29 and Colossians 2:9. But the word we have been using, "trinity," is not found in the Holy Bible. It is a theological word we use for the Godhead. It may describe the Godhead better but it doesn’t explain it. Our Awesome God will not be understood by our inferior minds but we will understand more about Him and the Trinity in heaven.
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday at 10:30 AM and at 6:00 PM for an hour of Bible Study along with AWANA for children until 7:30 PM. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and a Bible Study follows until 8:00 PM. We love visitors!
