I try to keep my writings in a non-denominational vein so that anyone can be helped through my thoughts. But
here is one that many will disagree with. There is one God, Jehovah, but there are three persons in the God Head; God the
Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.
Just as husband wife are one; just as our one government has three bodies, the Executive, the Legislative
and the Judicial, are one; so can the three in the God Head be one.
And yet are separate. God spoke audibly at the baptism of Jesus (Matt 3:17; He spoke when Jesus, Elijah and
Moses were at the Transfiguration (Matt 17:5-6); to Abraham at the burning bush (Exod 3:4-5); and before the crucifixion of
Christ (John 12:28).
And Jesus prayed to the Father...all night, at times...he told James and John that seats in Heaven were not
His to give, but were God's; He prayed in many places, and He gave his Apostles a sample prayer that begins with the words,
"Our Father, who art in Heaven." He prayed in Gethsemane that God released him from this fate, yet said "not My will, but
Thine." Yes, there are many instances in the Bible of His praying to His Father, God. In another place, Jesus said, "Why callest
Me good; only God is good (Matt. 19:17) that I find hard to comprehend. Surely He's saying this in comparison of Himself to
His Father, who He held in highest esteem. I felt the same way about my own earthly father, and still do, as you'll see in
my latest book, "Poems From the Heart," now on my website.
And there's the well-known John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Jesus is our intercessor to God, His Father (Timothy
2:5). And as Christ died on the cross, He prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34).
And in Matthew 24:36, concerning things that would come to pass, Jesus said, "But of that day and hour knoweth
no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Then in Mark 13:30, Mark repeats that statement. God and Jesus
having both spirit and human forms is called "theophanous." Both could walk, talk, smell, feel, remember and be angry.
And one more thought: There's the age-old truth that surely all have heard; how one egg has three parts; the
shell, the yolk and the albumen, or egg white: one egg; three parts; one God, three Men.
I pray you'll take this in the spirit that I give it. And remember that the first and most important directive
from God to to believe that Jesus is the Christ.
