Who Art Thou? Jesus Was asked

Who Art Thou? He Was Asked.
This is longer than I like, as I know many do not read well of even short essays. This is my thesis of the Trinity. My title for it above.
Who Art Thou? Jesus Was asked
Here He was appearing as a man claiming to be God.

Of a certainty all Christians should believe Yahshua/Jesus is THE only WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE. But not all as when He was here as one of us many did not know who He was. He was asked “Who Art Thou”.

This time we will look at the scriptures that reveal Who He is, who the Father is and who the Holy Spirit is.

I don't think it is hard to clear up this issue. The Father, 1, the Son, 2, Holy Spirit, 3, are one in Truth. The Son was brought out of Himself, the Father before anything and the Father sent Him the Son to do all the creation, all of the hosts and everything. His name though was LORD, YHWH, of Hosts before Bethlehem. Please read on to see if these statements are true that I've stated.-

Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Then --)

Isa 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God
(Notice LORD of hosts above which is also YHWH)(Notice also “beside me there is no God”. They are one and will be brought out in later verses.)(Also who is the "I" that stated "I am the first, and I am the last".)( Notice also "His" Redeemer! ) This was before anything, long before Bethlehem! Is not that statement, Isa 44:6, or proclamation a simultaneous one?

Isa 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

(We are to be his witnesses as to who He is)

All the Gods there are is brought out in Isa 44:6 above and notice " the first and the last" in the following verse.

Re 22:13
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. -

- Now I ask you, how many firsts can you have? Just one, it means before any other, and you know that is Jesus speaking. Was He before the Father?

Folks there is just one way it can be true, that He and the Father are TRULY one!

OK now let's see who the Holy Spirit is. - -

Joh 4:24
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Since we now know the Father and the Son are God and the above verse Jesus tells us that He and the Father are Spirit..

People all get it wrong with our Lord's statement here - -

Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Truly yes Truly one substance. Spirit beings are real, we are not made to see them but we are surrounded by them.

Now another verse - -

2Co 5:19 To wit, that God ( the Father ) was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. ( Who would be left but the Father to be in Him? )

Christ then is the Father extended to us to be our redeemer and one of us.

Then the Lord's statement to Philip - -

Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?You should see that Jesus the son has revealed who He and the Father are

Mt 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. To sum it up He has told us He and the Father ARE ONE and that they are Spirit, The Holy Spirit. He came to us in the form of His Son and now abides in us by Spirit. He is not limited that He can not be what He needs to be for the salvation of man and that plan was laid before anything. And so hence, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one and so 1 Jo 5:7 is correct, -

- 1Jo 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

When He Jesus has finished all He is brought fourth out of the Father to do, as He says, I was sent, - -

Joh 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.Then when it is finished. - -

1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

( Yet reigning )

1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1Co 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

( Only the Father is excepted )

1Co 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

The Son then becomes subject to the Father and so now the Father is as He was before bringing forth an equal from Himself to take care of the rebellion, He knew would happen.

1 Cor 15:24-28 gives us a profound understanding. For one thing it cinches it that there is no Trinity.

Also now the Son is just that, His Son the Prince and also at the same time one of us. He no longer is the ruling Deity He had been to accomplish the Redemption plan. The Father gave of Himself and dwelt in the Body prepared Him and so knows us as He was one of us, for remember the Father was in Christ. 2 Cor 5:19 above. The Body prepared verse is, - -

Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

A body was prepared that He would have blood to shed as the blood of animals etc. could not suffice.

Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

Notice this verse very carefully,

Ac 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

We sing “How Great Thou Art” in much awe realizing this

Blessings to all who have read this little essay and understand and are edified.

1Jo 4:4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
