1. Introduction To The Precept Or Doctrine Of God

God has instructed me to say that the Doctrine of God is one of the most misunderstood in scripture. This is because as humans, we interpret scripture in a linear manner. Additionally, Truth has been hidden from our eyes, because God preferred to keep this Truth hidden in previous eras (although Apostle Paul was savvy).

The classical Doctrine of  the Trinity as three individuals called Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one typical example.

However, the term Father, Son and Holy Spirit is a triparted reference to three of the names of  our Lord Jesus – He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit all at once.

As you read, my prayer is that:

…  the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,    

the eyes of your understanding [fn] being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints  (Eph 1: 17 & 18).

WHO IS GOD? – be prepared to sweat a bit!

God is the FAMILY NAME for the THREE persons who created the earth and who rule in heaven. I call them God Family for ease of understanding, since God is the Family name and each Person has a Christian name. I invite you to journey with me into new and exciting revelation about who God really is.

This content is by no means exhaustive and I have inadvertently omitted published posts in the interest of time.

The God Family appeared as “The Angel of God” in scripture

When our eyes are opened, it will be revealed to us that the Angel of God and the Lord are one and the same person in these appearances to human beings. God appeared as The Angel of God to:

Hagar and Abraham

 Jacob

Moses

Zechariah in a vision

JESUS AND WHO ELSE?

  1. Jesus – the Branch
  2. More on Jesus the branch – Zechariah’s vision
  3. The two Seraphims – Isaiah
  4. The Angels in Moses’ temple
  5. The Angels in Solomon’s temple
  6. The Angels who “stand in the presence of God”
  7. These Two Angels tracked in scripture  – summary
  8. Using the Law of Prominence to identify the two Angels covering the Mercy Seat
  9. Archangel Gabriel covers the Mercy Seat
  10. Archangel Michael covers the Mercy Seat
  11. Archangel Michael revealed by Apostle Jude
  12. Archangel Michael contends for the faith 
  13. The Rank and Power of the Archangels
  14. Prophet Daniel called Archangel Gabriel Lord
  15. ‘Adown  is one Hebrew  word used by Daniel and other Jews to address the God  Family as Lord
  16. Daniel referred to himself as the Archangel’s servant

SO WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?

The answer to this puzzle is triparted:

a. God is a family name for three people

b. God is Holy

c. and God is Spirit or a spiritual being.

We can safely that EACH member of the God family is Holy Spirit:

a. Jesus told the disciples that He would send Another Comforter. He indirectly revealed that He is the Holy Spirit and Comforter – touched with the feelings of our infirmities

b. Before He was born, Archangel Gabriel prophesied that Jesus is Holy (Luke 1: 35). He knew NO SIN.

c. God is Holy

d. Archangel Michael expresses His holiness   – He is always tossing the devil out. He has zero tolerance for satan.

SO WHY DID JESUS COMMAND THE DISCIPLES TO BAPTIZE CONVERTS IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT?

Jesus was referring to Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Is this strange? No. Think of the many names that God carries in order to express different elements of His personality or Spirit to us.

Here is the explanation about this mystery of Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

  1.  He is Father – Creator of all things
  2. He was sent to earth in the form of a Son – Son of  God and Son of a human female who was the vehicle for His birth. This latter explains to us why He is called the Son of man.
  3. He is holy and sinless – tempted in all points like us, but remaining without 

Prophet Isaiah was given this great revelation that the Child or Son of God was also God and Father. Note that EIGHT names are used to  describe Lord Jesus in the text:

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 (Isaiah 9: 6).

Apostles Paul and Peter also followed the same pattern of ascribing several of Jesus’ names in one breath. For example, they called Lord Jesus:

…the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus (Hebrews 3: 1)

… the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls (1 Pet 2: 25).
