The Trinity

Do You Understand the Trinity?

What comes up to your mind when you think of the Trinity? Three different Gods, right? The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is not in alignment with the teachings of the Bible. To understand it plainly, let us think about the transformation of water (H2O). When liquid water freezes, it becomes a solid called ice. When liquid water boils, it becomes a gas called vapor. Though water, ice and vapor are different in form and name, their essence remains the same H2O. God too works with a different appearance and a different name in each age, but the fundamental nature is one and the same God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Jehovah the Father and Jesus the Son

First, let us understand that the Father and the Son are one.

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Who is the child here? It is Jesus right? The Bible testifies that Jesus is ‘Mighty God, Everlasting Father.” These titles however indicate Jehovah the Father. Thus, we can clearly understand that Jesus is Jehovah the Everlasting Father. Let us confirm this further.

Revelations 1:8  “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Here the Father Jehovah is the Alpha and the Omega. Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and Omega is the last letter. This verse means that Jehovah is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. However, in another verse, it states Jesus is the Alpha and Omega.

Revelations 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Who is the one speaking here?

Revelations 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

“I” is Jesus, so Jesus the Son is the Alpha and the Omega. Therefore, the Father Jehovah and the Son Jesus are one and the same God. If the Father and the Son are different, the Father and the Son can never have the same beginning because the Father must exist before the Son. The Bible however teaches that Jehovah and Jesus are both the beginning. This is only possible if they are one and the same God.

Jehovah the Father and the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

No one knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him. Only who can know the thoughts of God Almighty? Only God can know God’s own thoughts. The Bible however, testifies that the Holy Spirit searches all things, even the deep secrets of God.

1 Corinthians 2:10  these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

What does this mean? It means the Holy Spirit Himself is God. God is the Father Jehovah. The Father and the Holy Spirit are one and the same.

Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit

1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

The Bible teaches that Jesus is the one who speaks in our defense. In plain words, he is our Counselor. But it is also testified that the Holy Spirit is our Counselor.

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Who is the Counselor according to the above verse? It is the Holy Spirit, but Jesus too is called our Counselor. Therefore, the Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one and the same God.

Through the teachings of the Bible, we can proudly say that the Trinity does not mean three different Gods, but one God plays three different roles. The Trinity states that God the Father is God the Son and He is God the Holy Spirit. It is essential for Christians to understand the Biblical truth about the Holy Trinity. In the age of the Holy Spirit, Father has a appeared as the Holy Spirit Ahnsahnghong. Let us believe firmly in Christ Ahnsahnghong and go back to Heaven!
