Scripture reading: Ephesians 4:4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.
The light that comes from the Bible will diffuse and disperse darkness. This is what the meditation of this new series will be – we will be looking to the Bible to diffuse the delusions and take away the fallacies. The following inspired words will follow us all throughout this series: Read the rest of this entry
Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] one LORD:
One in Hebrews = Echad, which means one in unity.
He is one Lord.
Isa 45:5 I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else, [there is] no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Is that easy to conclude in the light of what people understand today that the three are not one. That God the father son and holy spirit does not fit in here. Don’t we expect that whatever we read from Gods word isn’t going to fit into our understanding easily? We are to worship God intelligently.

We are to glorify God in a way that is pleasing to Him so as to know Him. To know God is to understand the deep things He has revealed about Himself to us through the scriptures. One of the deep things that God delights in us understanding about Him, is that He is three and yet He is one.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Through this understanding we realise that where one of the Godhead dwells, the other two persons are perfectly represented. The Holy Trio are three separate beings who are so close to one another and share such an intimate interwoven love relationship that even when they are apart, they are the perfect manifestation of one another. Christ during his time on this earth was the perfect representation of God the Father and the Holy Spirit. We must understand that when we enter into a relationship with Christ, we become partakers in this great love relationship that the Godhead shares.
The scriptures reveal that one day those who become one with Christ will share in His inheritance and become joint heirs with Him. If we are to be joint heirs with Christ and to be bestowed with the gifts that the Father has bestowed upon Him, we will be brothers and sisters with Christ and sons and daughters of God. In our budding understanding of the great love and unity of the Godhead, let us further comprehend that we too may be partakers in this wonderful, intimate relationship that the Godhead share and have extended to the human family.
