Show Us God

Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father ‘? John 14:9

Philip says to Jesus “Show us the Father” meaning “Show us God”! Jesus is amazed , Philip has been with him for over 3 years and he still doesn’t get it. Even after all the miracles Jesus performed, and all the references he made to past revelations of God such as , Great I AM, Living Water, Bread of Life, these guys still are not getting it!

Even today , many Christians are still not getting it. Even after all the Revelation we have about Jesus, after all the prophecies Jesus fulfilled, after all the power Jesus has displayed, many just don’t understand his deity.

If you want to see God, Look at Jesus! If you want to know the will of God, Look at Jesus!

 

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Colossians 1:15

Paul also describes Jesus as the image of the Invisible God! But what does Paul mean by “Firstborn of all Creation”? Is Paul saying Jesus was created by God? No, Paul is referring to the Resurrection of Christ! Because Jesus has defeated death and was resurrected on the 3rd day, he is the first fruits, the first born of all Creation!

Because of Christ we can live eternally with God, because of Christ we can now see God and have a relationship with Him Amen!

What Did Jesus and Apostles Teach about Trinity?

What Jesus taught

 

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19

“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you. John 16:15

What Peter taught

according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure. 1 Peter 1:2

What Paul taught

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14

Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me, Romans 15:30

There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

 

What Jude taught

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Jude 1:20-21

What John taught

the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement 1 John 5:8

John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood—Revelation 1:4-5

Trinity (Ephesians 2)

For through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. Ephesians 2:18

Who can understand The Trinity? A mystery that many theologians try to explain, some who can’t explain The Trinity just end up denying it. The problem with going down this road is you are denying the Deity of Christ. They then need to explain how Jesus forgave sin, raised the dead, and allowed many to worship him.

Paul here reveals about the Trinity

“For through “Jesus” we both have our access in one “Holy Spirit” to the “Father God” (Ephesians 2:18)

We remember that Jesus said he is the only way to God The Father (John 14:6) So those who are trying to cut out “The Son” as part of the Trinity and go directly to The Father will fail. We are not worthy or able to stand before God alone, we need the ransom blood of Jesus Christ to make us worthy.

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, Ephesians 2:19

Paul explains this, without Jesus Christ we are strangers and aliens to God. Only by the blood of Jesus Christ  and the baptizing of The Holy Spirit can we then become Children of God

having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, Ephesians 2:20

Jesus is the chief cornerstone , to reject the Trinity is to reject Jesus Christ. And when you reject the cornerstone of our faith, your religion crumbles.

in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, Ephesians 2:21

Now we see where the Holy Spirit comes in, we being resurrected with Christ, made a new person are the Temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16) And when you receive Christ , the Holy Spirit will dwell in you

in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit Ephesians 2:22

Through the Holy Spirit we are connected to God The Father. As Jesus taught us in John 14, he sent The Holy Spirit to live with us forever to comfort, advocate, and guide us in Jesus Name Amen!

Trinity

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

 

There are many false teachings that the Trinity is false doctrine. But as you read the above passages, Jesus commanded us to baptize in the name of the Father, Son , and Holy Spirit, he didn’t just ask us to. As it says before that Jesus has been giving all authority, if you want to reject the Trinity I suggest you take it up with Jesus.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:1-3

Some of the most powerful scriptures are in John 1, it clearly reveals the Trinity, as God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit are one.  This scripture is so revealing that there are religions and versions of Bibles that altered this scripture to disprove the Trinity. Jesus is the truth and those who seek the truth shall find it.

 

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.1 John 5:7-8

 

As we learned from John 1, Jesus is the Word, another confirmation that God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit are one. As Jesus said in John 10:30 “I and my Father are One” these Words come from the authority of Jesus Christ, who told us in Matthew 28 “All authority in Heaven and Earth has been giving to him”

Who are you going to believe, our Lord Jesus Christ or Man? There are many false doctrines about how the Trinity was made up by Man, the Word was here before Man and will be here after Man, I trust in Jesus.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. 2 Corinthians 13:14

Paul confirms the Trinity also with his sermons in Corinthians, if you don’t believe Paul, then you don’t believe half of the New Testament.  The other half of the New Testament Jesus confirmed the Trinity.

Don’t be misled by Man, read the Word of God, follow your heart, seek the truth and you shall find it in Jesus Name Amen
