Who is He?
Why is He the Creator?
What is the Trinity?
|GOD IS A SPIRIT
There is indeed only one
The Bible makes it clear
that He is eternal, true, infinite, and all-knowing.
Baptists believe that there
is one, and only one, living and true God. He is an infinite, intelligent
Spirit. Furthermore, He is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all-knowing),
and omnipotent (all-powerful). Therefore, can there be any
question as to how it is that he can walk through time even easier than
we travel from one place to another? Or that He can wink a universe
into existence while we are still trying to figure out whether or not the
chicken came before the egg?
He is simply God.
Doubt Him if you will and
deny His Bible as His revealed truth but be mindful of the fact that His
Spirit still moves upon the face of the earth.
Jehovah is God the Father
and He is indeed a Spirit.

to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the
land of uprightness." ~ Psalm 143:10

|GOD IS THE CREATOR
The cosmos is beyond our
comprehension. Regardless of the many recent and wonderful discoveries
due to modern technoloy, to say that we have even scratched the surface
of it's vastness would be a gross overstatement. While we are just
beginning to take our first baby steps in discovering it, He knows it like
the back of His hand. Well he should as He created it.
In fact, God is the
maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth. He is inexpressibly
glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love.
Why? Because he created all of it.
| "Hast thou
not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the
Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there
is no searching of his understanding."
~ Isaiah 40:28
|GOD IS A TRINITY
God is One.
God is Three.
Either someone is confused
or we have a divine mystery on our hands.
Trying to explain how it
is that God is three persons in one can be a challenge. In fact,
the concept is very abstract. It is also very Scriptural.
Some have tried to picture
the Trinity as being much the same as an ice cube, a glass of water, and
a puff of water vapor. After all, aren't all three the various manifestations
of water? No, they are forms of the liquid. God is three persons
Some have tried to define
as that of one man being a husband, a father, and a son. Again, the
illustration fails because those are positions and not persons.
Attempting to gain a full
comprehension of how it can be that there are three persons in one person
is beyond our understanding. Yet, the Word of God makes that claim
and does so over and over again.
In this modern world we live
in, our expectation is that everything needs to be explained, understood,
and rationalized before belief can take place. Believing in a spiritual
Being Who is attributed with divinity demands faith. However, accepting
the clear Biblical teaching that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three
persons in one person, demands even more of our faith.
Yet, the Trinity appears
numerous times in the Scriptures. To deny this is to be totally lacking
in faith altogether. Three persons in One--a mystery, yet, believable
because the Bible says so.
| "And because
ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts,
crying, Abba, Father." ~ Galatians 4:6
when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the
heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like
a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying,
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
~ Matthew 3:16&17
