Father, Son and Spirit
So, Jesus is God. The “Son”, the “Father” and the “Holy Spirit” are one single being.
and the One who sent me are one being!
It is understandable that the concept of “Son”, whether Son of Man or Son of God has intrigued and disturbed even the wisest scholars. It has created wars and church splits through the centuries.
Some Christian churches speak of a “God family” but on the other hand say to believe in one God. Islam takes this issue to denounce Christianity as a religion worshipping three Gods.
(But then we Christians are "infidels" in any case, as we are not Muslim...)
The early Christian church under the Roman emperor Constantine laid the foundation of the contradictory “Trinity Doctrine” at the council of Nicea in
A.D. 325. Today many are uneasy when Christians pray:
"We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, … and in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one Being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, On the third day he rose again in accordance with the scriptures;
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father…"
Are Christians praying to three Gods, one God who has three different names and/or consists of three different persons?
But how then can one God sit at the right hand of himself? Sounds like split personality, no?
Everything, however, is clear when we see the Son and the Father and the Spirit as a function and characteristic of the one and only God, as Jesus has written though Jakob Lorber: Jesus is the wisdom, the Father is eternal love, the Holy Spirit is the unlimited power. Three facets of God.
Jesus textually said to his disciples:
“God’s spirit as the Father was in me since eternity. But I am and was his soul. While it [this soul, ed.] has its own cognition and power as the highest and most perfect of all souls, it still was not permitted to do what it wanted but only what He wanted out of Whom it had come” (EM 70, 8).
On a different occasion Jesus said: “Neither Jehovah in Me or I, the soul, as Eternal Son but this body only, being “Son of Man”, will be killed in Jerusalem” (GGJ 05/246,7).
Or: “But in this Son of Man, who is flesh, dwells the Wisdom of God. And this is the only begotten Son of God. However, not the only begotten Son of God but only the Son of Man will be elevated/raised like the iron serpent of Moses” (GGJ 01/21,3).
The infinite power (Holy Spirit).
The Lord explains the Holy Spirit and at the same time the "Trinity".
[GGJ 06/230,02 - 06]
...the Lord: "The Father, I, as the Son, and the Holy Spirit are distinguishably one and the same from eternity. The Father within Me is eternal love and as such the first cause and the actual primal substance of all things that fill all infinity.
I, as the Son, am the light and wisdom going forth from the fire of eternal love. This mighty light is God's eternal, most perfect self-awareness, His clearest self-knowledge and the eternal Word in God by which everything that exists has been made.
In order to make it possible for all this to be made, also God's mighty will is needed, and this is the Holy Spirit within God that gives the works and beings their full existence. The Holy Spirit is the great, uttered word 'Let there be!' - and what love and wisdom within God have determined, comes into existence.
And behold, all this is now within Me: Love, wisdom and all might! Thus, there is only one God, and that is I, and I have assumed a human body like yours, solely in order to reveal Myself - as is now the case - to you men of this earth whom I have created completely in My image out of the primal substance of My love.
