      • Jesus made a very confusing claim once
      • “ I AM” Was the name Jehovah, the name of God
        • Jesus had just claimed HE was God
        • But we know God spoke to Jesus
      • The Nature of God is a Paradox
        • God is ONE
        • God is Three Persons:
          • The Father
          • The Son
          • The Holy Spirit
      John 8:57-59 Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?“ Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” Then they took up stones to throw at Him John 12:28 "Father, glorify Your name." Then a voice came from heaven, saying, "I have both glorified it and will glorify it again."
      • God used a special name for Himself (the most common name in the Bible)
      • ELOHIM Created all things;
        • God the Father created all things
        • God the Son created all things
        • God the Holy Spirit created all things
      • THEREFORE: Elohim is the name of God in Three persons
      Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, &quot;Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness...... So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them&quot; Genesis 1:1 &quot;In the beginning God <'elohiym> created the heaven and the earth&quot; Isaiah 44:24 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: &quot;I am the LORD, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself; John 1:3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. Hebrews 1:2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds Psalm 104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.
      • God the Father has these qualities:
        • Omniscient (all knowing)
        • Omnipotent (all powerful)
        • Omnipresent (all present)
        • Eternal (unconstrained by time)
      • God the Son has these qualities:
        • Omniscient (all knowing)
        • Omnipotent (all powerful)
        • Omnipresent (all present)
        • Eternal (unconstrained by time)
      Mark 2:8 But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned (in their hearts) Matt 28:18 (Jesus said) &quot;All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Matt 28:20 “…..and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” 1Timothy 1:17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible…..
      • God the Holy Spirit has these qualities:
        • Omniscient (all knowing)
        • Omnipotent (all powerful)
        • Omnipresent (all present)
        • Eternal (unconstrained by time)
      1 Cor 2:11No one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Psalm 104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; Psalm 139:7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? Hebrews 9:14 (Christ) through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God,
      • Throughout scripture it is testified that God is three persons
        • God the Father is called God
        • God the Son is called God
        • God the Holy Spirit is called God
      • The Bible does not have the word Trinity, but instead uses the expression “GodHead”
      Mark 12:29 Jesus answered him, &quot;The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one.&quot; John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, &quot;My Lord and my God!&quot; John 4:24 &quot;God is Spirit&quot; 1 Cor. 3:16 &quot;you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you“ I Cor. 6:19 &quot;Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit&quot; Acts 17:29 “….. we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.&quot;; Romans 1:20 &quot;For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead , so that they are without excuse&quot;; Col 2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily
      • The Three-fold nature of God is revealed:
        • By the Creative Power of Elohim
        • By the Divine Nature and Quality of God
        • By the Divine Revelation of God
      • A Father who has authorized Salvation
      • A Son who has worked Salvation
      • A Holy Spirit who has revealed Salvation
      John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 1 Tim. 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 1 Cor. 2:10 But God has revealed ( that which he has prepared ) to us through His Spirit
      • The Spirit reveals God’s will – do you believe?
        • Romans 10:17
      • The Son commands obedience – will you obey?
        • Repentance: Acts 2:38
        • Confession: Romans 10:9
        • Baptism: Mark 16:16
      • The Father desires your salvation – will you come?
        • 1Timothy 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth
