The Godhead or Trinity as we call Them today both meaning Three in One, are Abba Father, Jesus The Living Word and The Holy Ghost. The Scriptures I have shared below Fully Confirm The Trinity who are One in Spirit although they have different Roles in The Godhead, The Abba Father always being in final Authority. (1Corinthians 15:27 -28) It is The Holy Spirit that confirms There reality in our hearts (1Corinthians 2:9-16 ) and also the Scriptures below.
1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is The LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.
The word Trinity was first used in the 18th Century, the same as Dinosaurs, they were originally called Dragons or Leviathans and are mentioned in the Old Testament . Aids is also mentioned in the New Testament and D.N.A but not by those names. The word Rapture is also relatively new but is called The First Sickle in Revelation and is also referred to by connection in Luke and other Scriptures.
1John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.
Yes some Translations do leave the above Scripture out that is referring to The Godhead or Trinity, I use the K.J.V but the way we can be sure it was in the original is if it is also confirmed in other Scriptures ( see below) there are more of course but these do confirm 1John 5:7
I have found that Members of J.W, the Mormons and Christadelphians, although they reject The Trinity they still Love Jesus and seek to serve Him but their understanding of Him is in error, the same as with other important Truths, they do not call Jesus LORD of Lords (Revelation19:15-16) They are being deceived by their False Teachers and because of their own Translations that distorts God’s Inspired Words. They cannot mature in Christ Jesus or know His reality when they reject His Truth in Scripture.
So are we to hate those who teach error, No we are to Love even our enemies but just as we would not accept what they say and do that is evil so we do not accept or welcome teaching that deceives and pollutes, rubbish in rubbish out but if we hold onto bitterness and resentment towards anyone or seek revenge, we will suffer ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us, instead we Pray for them.
As I shared before the Scriptures below fully Confirm The Trinity, take time to read them and if lead to than share them with others so they will also be prepared if asked about the reality of The Trinity or Godhead as they are called in Scripture.
Jesus being conceived by The Holy Ghost had God’s seed not Adams and was in the Spirit fully God the same as The Holy Ghost.
Isaiah 9:6-7 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, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His Government and Peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
John 14:8-11 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered; “Don’t you know me Philip even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say; ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather it is the Father living in me, who is doing His work. Believe me when I say that I am in The Father and The Father is in me or at least believe on the evidence of the Works themselves.
One of Jesus’ Spiritual Names which shows His Divinity is Emmanuel, meaning God with us.
Matthew 1:22-23 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel which being interpreted is; God with us.
Jesus is The Living Word another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity.
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Genesis 1:26 – 27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
Colossians 1:14 -17 In whom we have redemption through His Blood even the forgiveness of Sins. Who is the image of the invisible God the firstborn of every Creature. For by Him were all things Created that are in Heaven and that are in earth visible and invisible whether they be Thrones or Dominions or Principalities or Powers all things were Created by Him and for Him and He is before all things and by Him all things consist.
The Scripture below also shows Jesus Divinity, Jesus never sinned, if He had He could not have been our Sacrificial Lamb to Redeem us. Jesus is good, He is God in Spirit.
Matthew 17a And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but One, that is God.
What does it mean to call Jesus the Rock which is another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity …..
Deuteronomy 32:3-5 Because I will publish the Name of the LORD, ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is Perfect for all His ways are judgment a God of Truth and without iniquity just and right is He.
Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer, my God, my Strength in whom I will Trust, my Buckler and The Horn of my Salvation and my High Tower.(KJV)
Psalm 18:31 For who is God save The LORD? or who is a Rock save our God?(KJV)
Psalm 18:46 The LORD Liveth and Blessed be my Rock and let the God of my Salvation be Exalted.(KJV)
1 Corinthians 10:3-5 And did all eat the same Spiritual meat and did all drink the same Spiritual drink for they drank of that Spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.
Jesus is The Lord of Hosts, another Spiritual Name also showing His Divinity…..
Isaiah 54 :5 For thy Maker is thine Husband The Lord of Hosts is His Name and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel The God of the whole earth shall He be called.
Jesus said as we see confirmed below; I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, The Almighty.
Revelation 1:7-8 Behold He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him and they also which pierced Him and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so Amen I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The Ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come The Almighty.
Revelation 19:15-16 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the Nations and He shall rule them with a rod of iron and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF Kings and LORD OF Lords.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet Saying; I Am Alpha and Omega The First and The Last:
Revelation 1:18 Fear not, I Am the First and the Last I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I Am alive for evermore Amen and have the keys of Hell and of death.(KJV)
Revelation 21:5-7 And He that sat upon the Throne said; Behold I make all things new. And He said unto me; Write for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, It is done. I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God and he shall be my son.(KJV)
Revelation 22:12-13 And behold I come quickly and my Reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be. I Am Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End, The First and The Last. KJV)
