PM: “One True God, Expressed in Three Persons”

Text: Genesis 1 and John 1

  1. This one true, living eternal, personal, all powerful God reveals Himself clearly
    1. He is a singular Deity manifested in three persons  Genesis 1:1,2
    2. He refers to Himself as a singular plural   Genesis 1:26-31
    3. We also see another person in this singular plural stated in the Old Testament – Psalm 2:2,6,7; Proverbs 30:4-6; Daniel 3:24-26
  2. God reveals Himself to us in Scripture in the term Godhead
    1. This is the Biblical term used to express the singular plural reality of the Triune God.
      1. Acts 17:22-34; Romans 1:18-32;  Colossians 2: 6-15
    2. God reveals each person in the Godhead expressed distinctly at the same time
      1. Matthew 3:16,17; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35
    3. God reveals each person in the Godhead separately
      1. We see a distinction between God and the Spirit of God – Genesis 1:2; Psalm 139:7; Job 26:13
      2. In Colossians 2:9, we see this expression of the Triune Godhead to be the Son
  3. We see the full expression of this triune, singular, plural God in Creation
    1. God the Spirit distinctly expressed in Genesis 1:2
    2. The plural expression of God in the creation of mankind in Genesis 1:26
    3. God the Son clearly credited with creation in the New Testament in John 1:1-14 and Colossians 1:12-22
    4. We see that this is the True God and that eternal life is only found in Him – I John 5:20
      • He is the Eternal God

      • He is the Almighty God
      • He is the Redeeming God
      • He is the Triune God
      • He is the only true, living God worthy of our worship and devotion.
