God teaches us that there is only one God.


God is:

There is nothing on earth that truly gives us

a picture of this concept.

Bible verses that show the Trinity


Here are a few of the verses in the Bible that show us the Trinity

NKJV


Genesis 1:26  "Let Us make man in Our image."


Proverbs 30:4b  "What is His name, and what is His Son's name, If you know?


Matthew 3:16  "When He [Jesus] had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him, And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.'"


Matthew 28:19 Jesus said:

"'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' Amen."


1 John 5:7  "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one."


Jesus is sometimes called

"The Word" or "The Word of God."

This is not totally clear. It is one of the mysteries of God.


Below is a verse about Jesus:


John 1:1 says:

"In the beginning was the Word

and the

Word was with God and the Word was 'God.'

He was in the beginning with God."



The Trinity





Explaining to children
that Jesus IS God


Children do not naturally understand that

Jesus IS God.


It helps children, if we explain to them that when people say the word "God" they are usually referring to Father God. Yet, Jesus is as much God as Father God.

It is hard for children and adults to understand the Trinity.

I explain to children that Jesus is called the "Son of God" because he is generally in the role of a son - doing what the Father asks. But The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit are each co-equal, co-eternal, and co-powerful and each of them is fully God.

When Jesus came to earth, he was 100% fully God and 100% fully man.

Jesus did have to lay down some of his divinity in order to come to earth. For example, on earth he was in an earthly body and therefore, he could not be everywhere at once. 


Before Jesus came to earth as a baby, he was everywhere at once.

God is omnipresent which means "he is everywhere at once."

So God the Father is omnipresent.

Jesus is omnipresent.

The Holy Spirit is omnipresent.


God is one, yet he is three persons or personalities. There is nothing else in the world like God.

The Trinity works together as ONE, and they are actually ONE.

So we can tell children that The Trinity is a mystery that we do not totally understand.


God is not just a Force


Great Video to help those

who have to overcome

New Age teaching or Hinduism.

It also shows that God is not the god of other religions.
