Compiled and Illustrated from The Scriptures & The Spirit of Prophecy July 2014 Presents Who are The Three Living Persons of The Heavenly Trio? Part 1
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:1-5).
From the first five verses of the gospel of John, The Truth of GOD and HIS Son, has been revealed to us. But John has revealed that man comprehended not The Light GOD has revealed of HIS Son, Who is also God. John said… These words from the first two verses of John’s gospel reveals to us The Truth. He did not leave anyone out, Who was with GOD in the beginning. John did not say they were with GOD in the beginning. No. John spoke of The Word, Who is God, and said, “The Same was in the beginning with GOD.” But was he saying that The Word and GOD is The SAME PERSON? No. Paul said… In the beginning was The Word, GOD and The Word was with GOD The Same Word was in the beginning with GOD. The Same Word was in the beginning with GOD. and The Word was with GOD, The Same was in the beginning with GOD. and The Word was God, and The Word was God, The Word was God, The Word was God,
“…unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows” (Hebrews 1:5-9).
Notice that Paul spoke of GOD--The Father, and focused our attention on what The Father did not say to any of the angels, who were created by HIM through HIS Son--The Word of GOD. The Father did not say those words to any of the angels, because they were not begotten, but were created by HIM through HIS Word. Ellen G. White said… At some point before the beginning of all creation The Father said to HIS Son… At some point before the beginning of all creation The Father said to HIS Son… GOD You are MY Son, this day have I begotten You The Son of GOD is God.
“The Sovereign of the universe was not alone in His work of beneficence. He had an associate--a co-worker who could appreciate His purposes, and could share His joy in giving happiness to created beings. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God." John 1:1, 2. Christ, the Word, the only begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father--one in nature, in character, in purpose--the only being that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God.
"His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6. His "goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." Micah 5:2. And the Son of God declares concerning Himself: "The Lord possessed Me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old. I was set up from everlasting.... When He appointed the foundations of the earth: then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him: and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him." Proverbs 8:22-30. (Patriarch and Prophets, pg 34, par 1)
Ellen G. White said GOD had an Associate--a Co-worker, Who appreciate HIS purposes, and could share HIS joy in giving happiness to created beings, which were created by Him for Him. She did not say GOD had Co-workers. Paul also said that, Again, when HE The Father brought in The First Begotten into the world, HE said,...Let all the angels of God worship Him. GOD All things were made by Him The Son of GOD is God. By The Word, GOD made the angels And again, after the creation of the angels, HE revealed to them and said… And again, after the creation of the angels, HE revealed to them and said… I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to ME a Son For “…Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24).
Paul spoke of GOD, WHO… HE said to Him, You have loved Righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore GOD, even Your GOD, hath anointed You with The Oil of Gladness above Your fellows. GOD But unto The Son HE said… The Son of GOD of the angels HE spoke, WHO made His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of Righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom. Worship Him
Notice that GOD--The Father by HIS Word, HE spoke and made His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. But to HIS Son--The Word of GOD, HE, even His GOD has revealed that HE has anointed Him with HIS SPIRIT of GLADNESS above them. Speaking of The Son of GOD, Who is The Christ of GOD, Paul spoke of Him… But The Word--The Son of GOD, He is The Anointed Spirit, Who is of GOD, to be God, to receive worship from His angels, who are of Him. GOD GOD has Anointed HIS Son with HIS SPIRIT The Son of GOD The angels are spirits of The Word --To be The Christ, The Holy Anointed Spirit of GOD --To be The Christ, The Holy Anointed Spirit of GOD
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 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: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:15-17).
Notice that The Son of GOD is The Image of The INVISIBLE GOD. He is the firstborn of every creature. For by Him… But John also said that, The Light shines in darkness, and man in darkness, could not comprehend The Light of Life, Who was shining unto him. GOD GOD created all things The Son of GOD The Christ By Him, HE created All things were created by Him, and for Him. He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. All things in Heaven All things in Earth Things Visible And Things Invisible Whether they be Thrones or Dominions or Principalities or Powers As John said of Him, In Him was Life; and The Life was The Light of men. As John said of Him, In Him was Life; and The Life was The Light of men.
If Christ angels are spirits and His ministers are flames of fire, and GOD has Anointed HIS Son with HIS SPIRIT of Light and Life, then where did this darkness come from? Speaking of the condition into which this world was created, Moses was led to write of the creation of this world, and he wrote of the beginning and said… GOD GOD has Anointed HIS Son with HIS SPIRIT The Son of GOD The angels are spirits of The Word, and His ministers are flames of fire.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” (Genesis 1:1-5).
Notice that as GOD created all things by HIS Son, HE revealed that HE created both heaven and earth by Him. But darkness was upon the face of the deep before the earth was even created with a form. Because men read the words of Scripture, which says The Spirit of GOD moved upon the face of the waters, they assume that, it is speaking about a third Divine Person, who worked The Will of GOD in creating the earth. But darkness existed before the earth was even created. What led to this darkness? GOD GOD said by HIS Spirit, “Let there be Light” The Son of GOD The Son of GOD And because of this darkness that was upon the face of the deep The Light of GOD’S Word has revealed to us The Truth. Yet, men deny The Light of Truth, to believe and teach that there were three divine beings in the work of creation.
Notice that GOD created all things by HIS Son, and HE revealed to His angels that they were all to worship Him, Whom HE Anointed with HIS SPIRIT above them all. But there was darkness spreading from one angel to another. What was it that led to this darkness that moved upon the face of the deep? It is written that… GOD GOD said by HIS Spirit, to “worship HIS Son” The Son of GOD The Son of GOD That command to worship The Son of GOD was given, as a Light, to move from one angel to another, to move upon the hearts of all the angels, to reflect and give Him glory.
“The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart [is] lifted up, and thou hast said, I [am] a God, I sit [in] the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou [art] a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: Behold, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:” (Ezekiel 28:1-5).
“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of [them that are] slain in the midst of the seas. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 28:6-10).
Notice that The LORD instructed HIS Word to speak HIS Words to this prince, whose heart was lifted up, to declare that he was a God, and that he sat in the seat of God in the midst of the seas…. The only strangers that were to defile his brightness was man, who was not created yet. This prince sought to destroy the strangers, who would destroy him. GOD GOD said to speak HIS Words unto this prince The Son of GOD The Son of GOD A prince Yet, he was a common creation and not God, though he set his heart, as the heart of God. With his traffic, and trade in his treasure of wisdom, his heart was lifted up. Because he set his heart, as the heart of God, GOD said HE will bring strangers upon him, and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of his wisdom, and they shall defile his brightness. They shall bring him down to the pit, and he shall die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. He shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers. GOD has spoken it, said The Lord GOD.
Because this prince of darkness spread his words of darkness upon the face of the deep, GOD said by The Spirit of HIS Word, “Let there be Light.” The Light and Life of man would reveal The Truth. End of Part 1 GOD GOD, by HIS Word made the world and man. The Son of GOD The Son of GOD A Prince To reveal The Light of Truth to all.
