"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

JOHN 17:3

Who Is God?

One of the most difficult subjects that have entered into Christianity is the question of Who is God?  Unfortunately, humanity in their pursuit to answer this question have only complicated the matters.  When we use human philosophies and ideas to figure out who God is, we only end up with bad theology and with the response of, it is a mystery.  Some have even changed God to become a what rather than a who.

The fact is God has revealed Himself.  He is a who, not a what.  Here is what we know by reading the Bible and what the first Christians believed and understood.  

1.  Yahweh is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  He always was and always is.
2.  Yahweh in some form prior to incarnation came to earth as the Logos or the Word.
3.  The Word became flesh, "incarnate" as the Son of God, named Jesus.
4.  The Son of God was human in nature as the Son but divine as the Word and was the Christ.
5.  The human nature suffered and died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead by Yahweh.
6.  Yahweh gave to Jesus, the Son of God, all power and authority in heaven and on earth.
7.  Jesus Christ is part of the Godhead with the power and authority of Yahweh.
8.  Yahweh gave us His Spirit which is the divine power and intellect of God.  
9.  The Spirit is Yahweh speaking to humanity spiritually.  

This is what we know.  This is what we believe.  This is what we teach.  
Anything more than this, is man-made doctrine that only brings confusion.
