But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. Yo Kranz! All the verses do not prove Jesus is God Almighty. Please check the word order! What did Jesus say about all this?
Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him lthe name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name. What is this?
Did the Authors of the New Testament Believe in the Doctrine of the Trinity?
Who are these guys? Do they have books in the Bible? Did they walk and talk with Jesus? Your 20 cites of the three things of your trinity mentioned in one verse is absolute proof of the trinity, which you DO NOT understand. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.
One question: Whose words carry more weight? Thomas B. The Jews C. Vos and Houdmann D. But that leads to a bit of a problem—one that your question brings up. Non-god Jesus! God just raised me from the dead. Got it? Then what is the purpose of this post then? To teach us more about mud wrestling or how to make homemade apple dumplings?
Jesus and John had no need to. It was obvious to them, just as it is today that Jesus in not God Almighty. Prove the negative??? Jesus stated the answer four times in Revelation It is really expected for Jesus to satisfy the notion that he has to deny everything he is not? John is a direct reference to Ex The Jews understood this. The Bible therefore teaches us that God and Jesus have separate bodies, separate knowledge and separate wills.
Jeffrey, Good list of verses. Keep up teaching sound doctrine and using good resources. Michael Houdmann is a friend of mine and his site Gotquestions. I just want to encourage you and your wife to keep up the fight for sound doctrine and reasonable teaching amidst the ever-growing vast ocean of ideas. Still truth not only can be found in the Scriptures, it is plainly evident and it exposes the errors of those seeking to oppose it. God bless to you both. Not one verse in the Bible says that the Holy Spirit is God.
There are verses saying the Father and the Son are God, that they are one, but not a single verse says the same. God has a body as evidenced in Christ , a soul God said he has a soul in more than 4 verses , and a Spirit the Holy spirit. God is the Father and Son, as Jesus confirmed when he said when you see him you see the father. The Holy Spirit is of God, it is not God. Similarly, our spirit is of us, it is not another person within us.
This is why you will not find Trinity or triune anywhere in the Bible. Convince me with scripture that actually says that the Holy Spirit is God. You will find that for the Father and Son only.

Thank you for this great question about what is called the 'Trinity' - that God is one, but has three persons within that oneness: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It remains what all Christian Churches accept as a biblically correct summary of the Trinity. It states that 'we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity'. There are two special challenges when it comes to the Trinity: about three being one at all, and about how Jesus was God the Son come in the flesh, both divine and human.
The first challenge is to try to grasp how God can be three and one at the same time. We struggle to understand how one being can have more than one way of existing because that is how we are ourselves. However, that should not prevent us thinking 'bigger thoughts' about the nature of the Divine Being who has created everything. There we find that there is indeed only one God.
Yet we find also that, to quote the Athanasian Declaration, article 5: 'there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Spirit. Because not only the Father is revealed with divine authority and rights, but also the Son and the Holy Spirit. For example, the early Christians worshipped the risen Jesus and obeyed the divine authority of the Holy Spirit.

John's Gospel is especially helpful to see this if you make a note of each reference to Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is, of course, a mystery. Some people will sneer at that as 'the usual excuse' of Christians to believe something irrational. We can only answer that it is not a failure of thought or intelligence but a serious grappling with what the Bible teaches: there is only One God, and that God has revealed Himself to us as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Some people a long time before even Athanasius suggested that these were not three persons but only three phases in God's relationship with the world He made - first He was the Father, then He became the God-Man Jesus, and then He became the Holy Spirit after Jesus died and rose. The problem with that is that all three persons appear alongside each other sometimes.

Take Jesus' baptism for example:. And if there are three divine persons in the one God, that means they are each real 'individuals' and have been throughout eternity. The second challenge has to do with Jesus being both God and human.

But remember that the human being Jesus was conceived; He began. It was the divine Son who came from heaven, not the human being who was named by his parents as a baby. So what happened? Yet this one being had, and still has, a human and a divine nature. Again, we face the mystery of the divine being existing entirely in a different order from ourselves. We cannot have two natures, but He can. Let's look briefly at these three phases - the Son before Bethlehem, the Son on earth, and the Son returned to glory. In time he took one upon himself, and lived a fully human life without an 'escape clause' because of his divinity.
Jesus slept because he could be tired. He could be sad.
