Believe it or not, Abraham personally knew all three members of the God family. The truth that there are three persons carrying the name GOD is revealed to us in a very fascinating account found in Genesis 18 and 19. Here is the evidence:

a. The members of the God family carry the name LORD

This is shown to us in Genesis 18: 1 which says that, “And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day”.  The Hebrew word for LORD means Yehovah or the Existing One. This word tells us that God has no beginning or end. David said, “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting thou art God” (Psalm 90: 2b).He is the same God who fellowshiped with Adam, Eve, Abel, Enoch, Noah and other righteous people in times of old. This is why Jesus told the Jews, ” Before Abraham was, I am” (Jn 8: 58).

b. Three men carry the name LORD

This is shown very clearly in Genesis 18: 1, 2 which says that

“The LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, THREE MEN STOOD BY HIM, and when he saw them…”

 

 c. The three men refer to themselves in the singular since the emphasis is on the family name

I’m out of time, but I will develop each of these points further in my next post. Meantime, I hope that you will find the answers yourselves as you search for truth. Have a blessed day!
