The Nature of God

The circle represents God the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit.

  • The three are one: 1 John 5:7There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one.”  The three are one in nature, purpose, and action.
  • The Word became flesh: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).  “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
  • A body was prepared by the Father: “When He came into the world, he said, Sacrifice and offering you have not desired, but a body have you prepared Me” (Hebrews 10:5).
  • The Agent of the incarnation of Christ: Luke 1:26-35: “The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a virgin…of the house of David and the virgin’s name was Mary.  He told her that she was highly favored with God.  He further told her she would conceive and bring forth a son and he would be given the name of Jesus.  He would be called the Son of the Highest.  Mary said unto Gabriel, “How shall this be seeing I know not a man?”  Gabriel told her, “The Holy Spirit shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you: therefore, that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God.”
